On the first Monday of this month
a race came ot? on the Oregon race
course which excites unusual comment,
not only at home hut abroad. The
name of one of the racers is "David
and the other goes by the more eu
phonious title of "Carving-Fork." It
is said that when he was a colt he was
one day eating slop from a small tub,
and such was his relish for the savory
food that he incontinently swallowed
a carvinsc-fork that had been accident
ally thrown into the swill by the
kitchen-maid. Hence his name.
David" is a highly-bred horse, be
ing of the blood-royal stock living in
Springfield, Illinois. He was well
trained from colthood to horsehood ;
having the best of grooms in constant
attendance to develop his muscle and
improve his wind which naturally
was quite respectable and abundant.
At an early day he was sent out to
Oregon, and a race was soon thereaf
ter made up by his backers between
him and a little pony from California
by the name of Lansing. The race
was neck and neck almost the entire
distance ; a blanket would have cov
ered them both except at the outcome.
"Lansing" won the race by a " mere
scratch," as ocx friend Col. Morgan
recently remarked to Judge Powell.
As soon as "David" ceased running,
Ms keeper attempted to bathe his
nose with a sponge well filled with
whisky and water; and this proved
.so grateful to David's olfactory or
gans that he finally seized the sponge
in his teeth, and laying back his ears
close to his head, he swallowed it as
easily as ever he swallowed a raw egg ;
and strange to say, ever since then he
drinks all tho whisky that comes
within his reaclL He has been known
to rear up, and snort, and champ his
bits, and sling foam from his mouth,
and caracole beautifully, and neigh
spiritedly, all because he smelt whis-
But this is a digression. Xot many
moons after Lansing beat David his
owners entered him on the same
course against a medium-size, high
spirited, clean-boned horse of Irish
extraction by the name of " George."
But David was beaten worse this time
than before. George led him all the
way and threw dust in his eyes at
every jump almost. David's keeper
sponged his nose as usual, this time
with pure whisky, all which David
liked so well that, watching his op
portunity, he not only swallowed the
sponge, but drank up all in the buck
et, and then attempted to swallow his
deeper ! He so frightened his keeper
that his hair " stood on end like quills
Tipon the fretful porcupine," fora long
lime afterward.
Last spring David's owners conclu
ded they would try him once more; so
they pitted him against Carving-Fork;
the stakes being, as we learned, about
$ 10,000 on each side. David went
immediately into severe training. His
keeper refused him his usual allow
ance of whisky ; he tried very hard
to make David quit his vicious habits,
such as biting, and kicking, and snort
ing when there was no need of it
and all other unseemly and unhorse
like tricks ; and in all which he par
tially succeeded. David's friends
thought he was much improved, and
bet high on him. They admired his
clean limbs his silky hair bis flash
ing eye his proud tread his peer
less form his heavy mane and black
legs and tail, and they were loud in
the praises of their favorite, and will
ing " to go their pile on bim" without
, hesitation.
As for Carving-Fork, we are at
loss what to say of him. We don't
know anything about his origin. All
we know is that he was brought across
the plains when he was a mere ungain
ly colt. His leper put him in an ox-
team as leader tandem fashion. He
was docile, geiatle, and worked well
np to the collar; but he was long
haired, slab-sided and long-legged,
and was troubled with strabismus
which, though it did not at all impair
his sight, made him look forty ways
for Sundays. Besides all this, he was
in poor condition ; so much so that
his owner, on arriving in the Valley,
turned him out on the nutritious, wild
grasses and told him to shirk for him
self. He soon recuperated, however ;
and on more than one occasion, while
herding cattle, convinced his keeper
that no comm jn blood flowed through
bis veins ; ancl he ultimately inspired
thoso who had him in chargo with
such confidence that they finally con
cluded to pit him against David, as
wo havo already stated. .
Tho first of this month was the time
appointed for tho trial of speed to take
place. It was a fair day; tho sun
shone brightly ; tho track was in ex
cellent order, and tho course was lit
erally surrounded by anxious and ex
cited spectators. When tho two horses
were brought on tho track, the betting
was two to ono on David. Ho had
been much better kept than Carving
Fork; and his fine form showed ofTto
much better advantage than that of
his rival. He pranced, and snorted,
and caracoled, and mado two-thirds
of tho people believe ho would bo the
winner. Carving-Fork, on tho contra
ry, showed little or no vivacity; and
being still ill-shaped, ho was not cal
culated to enlist the admiration of tho
crowd ; but good judges of horso-flesh
fancied that they could see many fine
points in him. It was truo that his
form was not yery symmetrical but
who ever saw a number ono racer that
was? His neck was long, his nostrils
wide ; hit heart largo, and his form
on the grey-hound order.
At tho tap of tho drum the two
horses started David full twenty-five
yards ahead. We forgot to state that
Carving-Fork's rider was a white lad,
possessed of extraordinary skill and
dexterity. Owing to somo whim of
the owners of David they insisted that
he should be ridden by one little nig
ger in the saddle, whilo a little Si wash
should hang to one stirrup and a long-
tailed celestial to the other; and to
gratify a vain and foolish pride, they
still farther insisted that they should
have the privilege of tying a large
purse, well filled with gold, to the tail
of David. They affirmed that they
had some bonds to cancel, and they
desired to show to the world that they
were ready to meet their engagements
as soon as the race should be ended.
Well : the riders whipped, and for
awhile David gained rapidly. The
Siwash and the Celestial kicked his
abdomen, while the little nigger laid
the whip on to his shoulders mean
while grinning from ear to car and
showing his ivories in the most ap
proved Ethiopian fashion. But all at
once Carving-Fork pricked up his ears,
and straightening out his neck at full
enrth, he came down to his work fine
y jumping twenty and thirty feet at
a bound gathering himself up with
a rapidity unequalled on this coast;
and sweeping past his antagonist like
a whirlwind. The little siwash and
celestial redoubled their kicking;
while the little nigger used the raw
hide on David more liberally than ev
er, in order to regain lost ground and
come up alongside of Carving-Fork
again. David, also, fully comprehend
ing the situation, strained every nerve,
and for a while gained a little ; per
ceiving which, Carving-Fork's rider
spoke sharply to him, and gave him a
couple of keen cuts on his flanks.
That was sufficient. No huge stone,
hurled from a Roman catapult, ever
cleft the air more swiftly. He did not
run he flew down the home-stretch,
making the fastest time on record,
and beating David twelve hundred
feet and over! After the race was
ended David's keeper threw a blanket
over him, loosened the sinch, and at
tempted to sponge his nose with whis
ky; but, contrary to all precedent,
David would not allow it, and was not
satisfied until his keeper sponged him
with cold water! How long this
strange freak will possess him we can
not tell.
Thus ended this great race. We
are told, mat uavia s owners nave
withdrawn him from the turf forever,
and declare that their purpose is to
turn him out to grass as a gelding.
As for Carving-Fork, his owners in
tend to rub him down, and feed and
blanket him well, (with one of the
blankets from the Willamette Manu
facturing Co.) and a few months
hence send him on to Washington for
exhibition. They think he can sub
serve their interests much better there
than here for awhile. We advise old
Thad. Stevens and cock-eyed Butler
not to get very close to his heels ; for
he may deliver a blow to the first that
will make his lame leg still more lame,
and to the last a kick that will make
his eye still more ugly, if possible,
than ever. Finis.
All the official returns have not yet
reached us ; but we give a few inter
esting facts.

An effort has been put forth on tho
part of somo leading Democrats of
very questionable political antcccd
ents Democrat of tho 3NT. Y. World
and Augusto Belmont school to
bring out Salmon P. Chaso as a Dem
ocratic candidato for tho Presidency.
Mr. Chaso doubtless suits them very
well ; but he will not begin to fill tho
bill so far as tho great body of tho
Democracy aro Concerned.
Except in regard to negro suffrage,
Chaso is a most'eonsummate change
ling. Ho has been for and against
hard money; for and against paper
money ; for and against freo trade ;
for and against protection of Ameri"
can industry ; lor and against Stato
Rights, and for and against centraliza
tion. Ho onco boldly advocated tho
doctrino of Secession; but ho is now
against it. Ho is the putativo father
of the greenback and National Bank
swindle; and he favors liquidating
tho principal of tho national debt with
gold instead of greenbacks. But the
overshadowing objection to him is
hat he is an ardent advocate of ne
gro suffrage. In this ho has been con
sistent. Wo cheerfully concedo that as a
man he sustains an excellent reputa
tion, and that in tho matter of intcl-
ect he is a head and shoulders above
all other men in his party. We re
gard him as a great man intellectual
ly considered. And his conduct dur
ing the impeachment proceedings, as
presiding officer of tho Court, was.
worthy of all commendation. To lua
praise bo it spoken that he forgot the
partizan and seemed actuated solely
by a desire to mete out justice pure,
unadulterated and simple.
But, in doing this he did nothing
more than his duty; and were it not
that corruption and injustice in the
Radical party, are the rule, it would
not excite any particular comment.
In the better and purer days of the
Republic, no one would have thought
of complimenting tho Chief Justice
simply because he properly interpret
ed the law and administered it impar-
ially. It is only because injustice is
he rule and justice the exception of
the Mongrel party that the conduct
of Mr. Chase is held up by the Demo
cratic press for the admiration of the
For one we cannot couccive of any
contingency in which wo could be in
duced to support Mr. Chase ; and if
ic should be nominated by the forth
coming: Democratic Convention it
wonld bo the death-knell of the Dem
ocratic party. hue ho would
doubtless attract hundreds of Radi
cals to his standard he would alienate
thousands of good Democrats whom
no considerations of public weal or
party fealty could induce for a moment
o support.
Off Foa the Mountains. For
some time past we have needed relax
ation, or a respito from the labors in
cident to editorial life ; and we shall
start for tho Cascade Mountains next
Monday, no preventing Providence.
We have appointed "Ad Interim" to
act as editor during our absence, and
trust we shall not bo "impeached" for
so doing; and if, unfortunately, wo
should be, we feel confident that wo
shall be acquitted by a good round
bo then, reader, we bid you adieu
for a short time. We intend to leave
this Valley, and its mists, and wavy
fields of grass and grain ; we intend
to go beyond the telegraph so wo will
not be bothered with news and all the
anxieties incident to an editor's life,
and when wo get up into the moun
tains we shall not care whether "school
keeps or not." We say wc leave tho
Valley and turn to the mountains.
Hail ! to these grand excrcssenccs on
tho fair face of Nature ! Hail to their
rugged brows to their precipices
to their ice-cold streams to their ma
jestic forests to their healthful breez
es, and to their snow-clad summits!
We intend to slay something less than
fifty fat bucks, two black bear, one
catamount, one elk and ono cougar 1
and how many our friend and compan
ion (Abe II.), will slay, wc certainly
cannot tell; but as ho is a number
one Nimrod, it is reasonable to sup
pose that he will beat us all hollow.

Everywhere the bolters have been re

Under tho question of "A Demo
cratic Triumph what is it?" tho
Oregon City Enterprise says :
"The leaden of the TDemooratiol eartr know
that the negro equality war cry is all a humbug,
used merely to secure votes, and put Democrats
in office. Tbeir object is to roll back the tide of
civilisation as muob as possible. They bare op
posed every step, and will undo all we hare done,
so far as it shall be in tbeir power. There can be
no doubt that the ultimate object of the Demo
cratic leaders, Is the restoration of slavery, tad
the repudiation of the national debt."
Tho Enterprise editor says that "the
negro equality question is all a hum
bug ;" and that tho " leaders " of tho
Democratic party know this, and uso
it merely to put Democrats in office.
If tho doctrino of negro equality U
a humbug, tho Radicals havo a most
singular way of showing it. Since
hey have attained power they havo
enfranchised the negroes in tho Dis
trict of Columbia ; they havo freed all
the negroes in tho South and havo
clothed them with tho right to vote,
and they aro now actually the govern
ing class in tho South ; they havo giv
en niggers tho right to vote in every
territory of tho United States over
twenty voting last year for tho Radi
cal candidato for Delegate to Con
gress in Washington Territory, they
havo refused admission to States be
cause their Constitutions did not al
ow the blessed nigger to vote, and
hey have adopted an amendment to
tho federal Constitution which pro
vides that every person born in the
United States is a citizen, and that
every citizen shall have tho right to
vote, State Constitutions and enact
ments to tho contrary notwithstand
ing; thus most unequivocally en
franchising every negro throughout
he United States. If all this is a
" humbug," it is one of the roont stu
pendous and real of which we have
any knowledge.
The Enterprise says that Democrats
intend to restore slavery and to repu
diate the national debt. Roth of
these allegations arc utterly false. No
Democrat of any prominence and
most surely no Democratic Conven
tion has ever ex pressed a desire to
restore slavery. The southern people
themselves do not want it restored.
And relative to repudiating the na
tional debt'thcre isn't a word of truth
in that cither. The Democracy gen
erally are in favor of paying the prin
cipalexcept the 1 0-40s--with green
backs, precisely in accordance with
the law enacted by a Radical Con
gress. During the war greenbacks
were good enough for the soldiers
so the Mongrel told us they were
good enough for the laborer, mechan
ic, Ac, they were and arc a legal
tender for all debts, public and pri
vate, except duties on imports and in
terest on the public debt," and are
receivable in payment of all loans
made to the United States." This
nguago may be found on every
greenback that ever we saw and we
have seen several thousands, if not
more. No good reason can be given
why the public debt should not be
liquidated with greenbacks ; and it is
certainly no repudiation to pay in the
same money that was used by the
bondholders in buying their bonds ;
no repudiation to pay our debt in the
same money that is paid to the sol
dier and the laborer. Wc say if rags
are good enough for the people they
are good enough for the bondholder;
and he shall never have a dollar in
gold for his bonds if wc can prevent
Rut who is this who makes these
charges against the Democratic party?
A fellow who, a fow years ago, was
a blatant, red-mouthed secessionist ;
who since he came to this coast pub
lished a rank democratic paper ; and
who " flopped " over for a considcra
tion. Such is ths man who now pre
tends to disclose tho nlterior designs
of tho Democratic party of Oregon.

It will be seen that Boyd's majority
over Dierdorff (Radical) is 164. On
the first Monday of this month tho
sity of Portland gave a majority oi
eight against Smith, Democratic Con
gressman elect. This shows a Demo
cratic gain of 172 votes sinco the elec
tion ; and it proves conclusively that
the city is Democratic ; that the suc
cess' of the Democracy there is not
due to adventitious circumstances
but that they have a good, reliable
working majority.

altogether, or that they would speak of
them in such a manner as not to wound
the feelings of their Christian fellow
citizens. A flagrant instance of the sac-
riligious dealing in the person and posi
tion of onr Divine Lord has lately been
exhibited by Mr. Thaddcus Stevens' of
Pennsylvania, on the trial of the im
peachment of the President. In his
speech, as it was telegraphed to the lead
ing secular papers of tho country, after
charging the accused with " the betrayal
oi the party that bad elected him, and
the principles he professed," he declared
that was " worso than tho betrayal by
Judas I sea riot, for he betrayed only
a single individual, but Johnson sac
rificed a whole nation, and the holi
est of principles." Thw is simply bias-
pnerooua. c aisiiko 10 ueiace our
paper by copying the word, even for
the purpose of condemnation. We al
most shrink from copying them, though
it be with tho view of entering a sad and
indignant protest against the sentiment.
The invidious comparison has been a fa
vorite one, wo believe, with the gentle
man from Pennsylvania. It has been
drawn before in a mt irreverent man
ner. And the President, in one of his
speeches, replied to it, in a tone which
was quite as reprehensible nnd shocking
to Christian cars. Our Lord Jeu Christ
issooken of as "on In a tingle individual "
and the base betrayal of "him, by a man
whose name ts ahifsing and a by-word, is
slightingly alluded to as a little crime,

compared with the sacrifice of this na
tion, and of certain principles that arc at
issue between two i;reat parties, both of
which rank in their number nmie of the
best men of the country . Why, ma
nify this nation a hundred fold, and
assume trio righti umegs oi an the prin
ciples which the President is charged
with havinc betrayed, and it is still ini-
pious to cievaie tucin to a looting wun

Grant in iLUNOis.The "idol of
the people" seems to be falling from the
pedestal whereon enthusiastic worship-
pcrs had established him. Thus, Mr. W.
G. Ewing, of Quiney, 111., writes in reply
to the iamous btewart-Urant circular:
The state of public mind in my district
is rather unfavorable to tne I'rcstdential
pretensions of Gen. Grant. There were
a great many soldiers from "my district
under Gen. Grant, and they y that at
ho was drunk ; at Shiloh, he was drunk ;
Vicksburg, he was drunk. Besides, Mr.
Hilton, we think that a man who will do-
liberatly lie to and deceive the President
of the United States will be swift to break
faith with tho people.

The steamer Yakima has just arrived from
LewiKtun. Snake river is still risinir. Ad
vices from Montana state that the Missouri
river is unusually low. No boats will le
able to get abre Muele Shoals and only
two or three that far. Pack trains arriving
from points on the Columbia via Pen d'-
Oreille Lake report the trail in excellent con
Ilayti and the Xegro.
The scenes in Ilayti make it more than
probable that law and order will never be
restored to the black inhabitants cf that

the ruins of its predecessor, and are

Sexatoe Henderson, of Missouri,
to be Married. Very soon Washing
ton society will be all aglow with the
knowledge of the betrothal of its most
charming young lady, Miss 3Iary Foot,
to Senator Henderson of 3Iissoun. . Miss
Foot is the most admired of Washington
belles if, indeed, she may be called a
Washington belle, her home having been
at Saratoga Springs, New York. Of
course you want a photograph. I would
be clad had I the brush to paint jou
icture. But to do this the pencil of a
laphael or a Reubens' would not avail
me. Miss Foot L a bright blonde, with
large and lovely eyes, an exquisitely artis
tic mouth, and symmetrical and classic
face. She wears a wealth of rich golden
hair, arranged in tasteful tresses, waving
back upon her shoulders. The sweet
simplicity and abandon of this feature of
her toilet, coup?ed with her quiet tender
ness, and vivacious naturalness of anima- '
tion, render Miss Foot, in the' opinion of
connoisseurs of beauty, the most witch
ingly attractive young lady gracing the
cremc de la crem of society of the capi
tal. The nuptials will transpire in No
vember. Buchanan's funeral was the most im
posing ceremony ever witnessed in Lan
caster county. A number of delegations
from distant cities were present. . About
three thousand persons walked in the pro
cession. Business was universally., sus
, Buchanan's estate is estimated at S300.
000. It is understood he left a lefracv
for the poor of Lancaster.
