STATE RIGHTS DEMOCRAT.
TIIE IASAXE ASYLUM.
An Asy?am for the insane, mad, and
Miotic, las become a necessitr in every
Staid, and however mneTa the fact maybe
deplored, it b manifest and inexorable
tliat tbe number of insane ia aurmentin
trery year. To tbe reflective mind tbe
iinscs for this augmentation will not be
iifHeu!t of divination. Tbe many nnnat
ural, and we ought to eay, sacrilegious
urns vthieh pervade nearly every commu
nity through tbe influence of a Certain
restless, speculative, unhappy, fanatical,
intolerant, mischievous and very prag
matic people, are prime causes for much
of tbe insanity of tbe day, and to these,
ia comparatively new countries like Ore
gon, there are superadded other causes
which need not be mentioned here, but
are known to tbe public generally.
. Oregon has not yet an actual State
Asylum for tbe care and cure and main
tenance of tbi3 class of miserable beins
but private enterprise has afforded pretty
nearly all that is required. Across tbe
riTer from Portland, about a mile and a
'half from that city, is tbe Asylum e3tab
liahei some years ago by Doctors Haw
thorne and Loryea, and since adopted as
a place for keeping tbe insane and idiotic
mho fall to tbe charge of tbe State.
". While on a visit to Portland lately we
"were afforded an excellent opportunity, in
company with a number of others from
the interior of the State, to examine the
institution and witness tbe care and treat
ment of the unfortunate inmates. A. de
scription of the Asylum cannot fail to
interest our readers, and we shall briefly
The planof the building is copied from
tho most approved similar institutions in
th-3 'East a great main building and
-capacious wings, with roomy and conve
nient outhouses for "kitchen, washing,
wood, and other purposes. A never
teaming, very abundant, supply of water
, is afforded throughout the whole Asylum
and buildings. This water flows from a
"great, clear, sparkling spring near the
institution, and is forced by pump and
pipes to a huge vat, at the top of a tower,
. buit expressly for that purpose, fifty-eight
feet' high. This vat contains twelve
thousand gallons, and by means of small
pipes leading froia it water is furnished
to every portion of the Asylum ; and be-
: sides, there is always a large surplus
ready for use in case of fire, with hose
and pipes conveniently placed. The
Asylum itself is divided into great halls
5. often or twelve feet width, on either side
of which, running the whole length, arc
. comfortable' bed-rooms, each furnished
with a single cot and ample bedding.
One "room m each li&il is devoted to
"; bathing accommodations for tbe patients
and hot and cold water is ready at all
hours of day and nijrht. In the ball of
one of the wings are kept the worst and
" incurable patients, and the idiotic; in tbe
other those afflicted with only temporary
insanity and who are -considered curab'e.
The female patients are confined in the
upper halls of tbe taain buildinjr, and
separated according to the degree of their
insanity and curability, as in the case of
the male patients. The rooms, halls,
every apartment and portion of the whole
" . institution is kept scrupulously clean, and
the casual observer cr.n readily see than
order, neatness and great attention is
1 everywhere manifested, in the care of the
buildings. The patients appear to be cx-
. cellently well treated, and the ratb of
1 cures effected, we believe, is equal to that
, of the best Asylums in the older States,
and far ahead of the California Asylum
There are. now about sixty patietts of
every class in the Asylum. The building
t has capacity for about one hundred and
fifty, and further improvements are being
made by the proprietors, so as to ensure
the utmost possible comfort to all tbe un-
fortunato who are placed there. The
grounds about the Asylum are broad,
well fenced in. and beautifully adorned
r with Bhade trees, flowers, grassy lawns
&c, in which the patients are taken for
walks and bodily exercise ia suitable
Among the notables we saw in the
1 female ward was Mrs. Charity Lamb, who
- killed her tiusband several years ago
;She sat knitting as the party went througl:
the hall, with a face imperturbably fix
1a half-smiling contentment, and appar
l rftitly as satisfied with her lot as the hap
piest of saoe people, are with their3.
All iu all, it was a very interesting visit,
nd the whole party were handsomely ea
" pertained in the Asylum parlor "by Dj.
Loryea after the tour of inspection.

An Equivoque. Senator James W
Nesmith equivocates, 'and says that he
has never received a cent of " construc

the precis term for it, hut we assert as
a fact, which Senator Nesmith cannot suc
cessfully deny, that he did receive mile
age for three trips to Oregon and back,
while he actually made but one trip. Id
other words, he drew from the Federal
Treasury over thirteen thousand dollars
more -than he was honestly entitled to ;
and, to draw this raoey, be had first to
vote that it should be appropriated to him.
Is he not a " costly Senator ?"
