TIXE PRESIDENT'S COSGBATU
LATIOXS. The following dispatch was received
at Salem, br Senator Nesmith, on
Thursday the 4th instant:
"Washington, June 3, 1868.
ToIheJTon. J. W, Xesmith:.
I ea.nestly congratulate you on the
triumph of correct principles in Ore
gon. --.Andrew Johnson.
Good for President Johnson. He is
coming round to his first love. He
says the principles in issue, on the first
of this month, in Oregon, are "cor
rect," and he congratulates Senator
Nesraith on their triumph. Hence he
is in favor of taxing United States
bonds; against negro suffrage;
against negro equality ; against the
negro bureau ; against the tyrannical
Reconstruction policy of Congress;
in favor of paying the principal of
the public debt in greenbacks, except
the 10-40 Bends, and in favor of a Tar
iff for revenue instead of protection.
These issues were more or less sharply
defined during the canvass and were
voted upon on the first instant John
son says they are "correct" and ot
course they receive his endorsement.
But, says one, you must bea "John
son man." Not a bit of it. We once
took some stock in him; but he "went
back" on the Democratic party just
.when he should have stood firm; and
we do not intend he shall have a
chance to deceive us agaiu. And yet,
in one sense we are a Johnsonite. As
long as he advocates, enforces and de
fends Democratic principles as long
as he does what is right, he shall have
our countenance and support. But he
cannot have our aid as a candidate for
the Presidency. In this senscwe are
not, and expect never to be, a "John
P. S. Under date of June 8, Presi
dent Johnson telegraphed to Mr. Da
vidson, of Portland, as follows;
I thank yoa fr the good iewi. Oregon hu
done nobly and it III stand with the colnraa of
Suites which in the approaching elections will re
deem the nation from misrule and usurpation.
Again we say good for Johnson,
Oregon he "done nobly ;" and the
States "will redeem the nation from
misrule and usurpation." There is no
doubt in our mind about it at all.
The Radical party expect to carry the
elections with Grant's popularity.
They think the people want a military
man; but never did a party make a
more fatal mistake. The people are
tired and sick of fuss, and feathers,
and glittering stars, and all that sort
of tomfoolery. They want sound, clear
headed statesmen, and they are going
to have them, to- Chase, or men of
his stamp would have polled a heavier
Radical vote than will be cast for Gen.
CAUSES OF DEFEAT.
The leaders of the Radical party of
Oregon, perfectly astonished and be
wildered at the result of the late elec
tion, are busily engaged in assigning
causes for the calamities 'which have
overtaken them and their party. One
aliedges great frauds; another thinks
Logan is solely, to blame; another
Relieves not only that frauds were
perpetrated, but that many "Union
men " were deceived; that they were
made to believe that the Democratic
party are now, and have been, "for
the Union ;" and that thus many Rad
icals were hoodwinked and induced to
yote the Democratic ticket. '
Now, the truth is, they have none
of them given the correct solution.
The true cause is to be found ' in the
fact that many, who, for some years
past have ac ted and voted with the
Radical party, have become convinced
that that party is wrong, corrupt and
rotten ; and they are fleeing from it
like Lot fron Sodom and Gomorrah,
.and are taki ng refuge in the Demo
cratic party. Hundreds and thousands,
not only in Oregon, but . throughout
the entire land, are turning, with
loathing and disgust; from the Radi
cal ranks and casting in their lot with
the good, oil Democratic party that
party under; whose' auspices our peo
ple grew frcm a mere handful to one
of the most powerful nations' on ' the
globe; that party who never once
oppressed a citizen, and who never vi
olated the provisions of the Constitu
tion. Many, who have heretofore act
ed with the Radical party, are against
taxing the -uhite man to support lazy
worthless negroes in. idleness; they
are against taxing the laboring man
to uphold - bondholders ; ; they are
against ne-jro sum-age and negro
equality; aid they very naturally a
ly themselves to the Democratic par.
ty and forsako a party advocating
such odious and disgusting dogmas.
These are some of the causes of the
defeat of the Radicals in Oregon ; and
which will defeat them throughout the
entire country next November.
HOW THE MINISTERS VOTED.
We would bo the last man cause
lessly and needlessly to do anything
to weaken or , impair , the , influence
which ministers of the gospel exert
over tho people. ? But when they do
wrong when they are guilt of glar
ing inconsistencies-when they preach
one thing and practico another they
should bo rebuked.
On more thanono occasion we have
had members of the white-cravat or
der censure us for advocating the elec
tion of men to important offices whoso
private character was not what it
should be; and yet, in all our life, we
have never supported a man whose
private habits are so vile, and low, and
dirty, as are those of David Logan, j
He has been a most notorious debau
chee and inebriate perpetrating acts
of indecency, and profanity, and blas
phemy too outrageous for publication.
His character in this regard is well
known to everybody, not excepting
tho ministers of the gospel. They
are perfectly cognizant of his profani
ty, and blasphemy, and obscenity and
habits of inebriation. And yet, al
most without exception, they marched
up to the polls and voted for him, and
exerted their influence to have others
do likewise. It is sometimes said that
they vote for such a man as a choice
of evils that his opponent is no tet
ter. But in the case under considera
tion this plea will not avail. Every
body who knows Joseph S. Smith
even his bitterest enemies concede
that his private character is singular
ly pure and spotless that he is a
dignified, unostentatious Christian
gentleman. This is conceded by those
ministers who voted against him and
in favor of Logan.
It will doubtless be replied that
they voted for Logan in order to up
hold certain political principles.
Well: what are they? Nigger Suf
frage, Nigger Equality legal, politi
cal and social the tyrannical Recon
struction measures of Congress
the Impeachment of the President
in violation of all decency, and pre
cedent, and law; the quartering
of legions of armed soldiery on the
South; the nigger Bureau an in
stitution enforced at the point of the
bayonet, and which sustains and en-
turages niggers in idleness with
money wrung irom tne lianas oi the
white laborers of the North and
West ; corruption and fraud in every
department of Government; against
taxation of U. S. Bonds, and hence
in favor of a privileged aristocracy ,-
in favor of the laboring millions bear
ing the burdens of the opulent and
wealthy ; and in favor of a high pro
tective tariff for the especial benefit
of the New England manufacturer,
instead of simply a tariff for revenue.
Such are some of the principles and
measures for which these ministers
voted when they cast their vote
it Losran. It will be a Ions time ere
these votes will bo forgotten; a long
time ere these ministers rid themselves
of the stink by which they are now

rectors of the Railroad Co., which has
been held this week in this city, end
ed its business at a late hour last
night. : .. . . .
Among the important business trans
actions particularly interesting to Linn

trunk, certain, through the county,
without designating any particular
route, or points to be touched. -

eral canvass of the county for the sale
of stock, and for donation to aid the
enterprise. . Both the Company and
contractors are hopeful of an early
completion of the road. Should the
people respond as they ' should, and

It was the intention of those having
the demonstration in charge, that the
speaking should take place in the
Court House; but finding it would
not hold one-fifth of those in attend

that the speakers should hold forth in

the Court House. Short speeches
were then made by Messrs. Cranor,

It is frequently and persistently
charged by the Radicals that Demo

boisterous on such occasions ; but it

that there was not an intoxicated per

erything passed off pleasantly and in
order. A party who awea by such
men as Logan, and Yates, and Grant

In the last number of the Democrat
we stated that Mr. Mansfield, previ
ous to the election, promised to vote
the Democratic ticket. He denies
that he ever gave such a pledge. Our
statement was based on general ru
mor; and also upon the fact that he
did say, to more than one, that he was
as good a Democrat as ever. As we
always regarded him as a sound Dem
ocrat, up to a short time prior to the
election, and as we cannot see how a
good Democrat can vote for any oth
er ticket save the Democratic and be
as good a Democrat as ever, we felt
justified in making the above asser
tion. Not wishing, however, to place
him in a false attitude in any respect
whatever, we cheerfully give him tho
full benefit of a denial, as above.

denying the right of suffrage to any citizen

to the right of foreigners to vote, so as to
acquire tho right of citizenship hereafter if

- "From all that I can learn on the sub- ft

"The Iowa troops have been ia, ,

now holds. Thev regard Mm as the an-'

to compel them to serve under him. The 1

continue him in the field.
"1 understand he has been virtually
suspended, that he now really has no com
mand, that each divsion and army corps
of the Western ' -Department is under the

whole under the command of Gentiat

"At fort Donclson, the right wing- of
