THE CiXITOSinA ' DSMOOaiOY
.v On Tuesday, the 20th instant, the
leraocrane otaie convention of Ual-
. lforma met .at Sacramento, , and the
T ... .i 4 1 i . ft . .
largest political gathcrinc ever held
in tjiat State. Governor Bradley, aad
- irate-sa number of other distinguished
Demoorata from Nevada were pres
ent and took an .active interest in the
proceedings of the Convention. . Aa
the Reporter was issued before the
Convention adjourned, and as the tel
egraph fronVCalitoriria has been too
busy in heralding Chinese thefts and
the price ot Dosrus minmg stocks to
give us the particulars of the Conven;
tion, we have only a partial list of the
nominations' to present to 'our read
etv .lFolloring are the nominees T of
the Con yen tion, sd far as reported.
For. Go VERETbe present in
cumbent, Henry II. Ilaight, was nom
inated .by acclamation, there being no
other candidate put forward.' The
Convention greeted the nomination
"with, three tremendous cheers which
shook the building1 from . turret to
foundation, the cannons, prepared for
the purpose, fired 13 shots in honor of
the event, and Gov. llaight accepted
the nomination in a short but elegant
speech. . -. .-..-..

candidates. " . ; Y,'
I.- S, Since the above was written
the porpoise-gaited telegraph comes
waddling along with the following I
. additional nominees, which completes
the ticket: For Superintendent of
i?chools, 0. P. Fitzgerald; for State
Treasurer, A. Coronel ; - for Attorney
General, Jos. Hamilton; for Surveyor
General, J. "W. Bost; for State Prin
ter, John Barry; for .Clerk Supreme
Court, Thos. Laspayer for Harbor
Commissioner, .J. Friedlander; for
Congress in 2d District, John W.
Cofiroth. - -
" The Platform of principles was
adopted unanimously without discus
sion. The first and, second resolu
tions are copied almost verbatim from
the Ohio "New Departure" of Val
landigham, acknowledging the late
amendments to the Constitution as!
fixed facts and no longer issues before
the country. . - The third resolution is
a reiteration of the Democratic doc
trine of State Rights and completely
Icnopta thft fitnmns from ' nn?pr tri
15th Amendment which assumes to
regulate suffrage in the several States.
How these ; antagonistic propositions
can be neutralized and reconciled we
leave those champion political acro
bats who perform the "New Depart
ure" act to demonstrate. ;
The fourth plank of the 'Platform
demands universal amnesty; the fifth
condemns, in scathing language, those
twin infamies, the ."Bayonet Force
Bill" and the "Ku-Klux Bill -the
sixth fevors a tariff for revenue only,
and denounces the protective; system
as unjust, oppressive, prolific of cor
ruption, and injurious to the best in
terests of the country ; the seventh
opposes Congressional land-grabbing
schemes ; the eighth arraigns the Rad
ical Congress for its failure to repeal the
odious income tax and to restrict the
importation of Chinese7 coolies; the
ninth uncompromisingly opposes sub
sidies tp.xaikoad and. other corpora
tions -r tne. tentn lavors amending tne
State Constitution so as to- provide
additional safeguards around the pub
lic treasury; , the eleventh denounces
monopolies of all sorts and favors the

As a setoff" against the mongrel-
ized, galvanized, sweetbriar platform
of Vallandigham, we present the fol
lowing genuine Democratic platform,
laidVlo'ma.by Thomas Jefferson in his
first inaugural address, in the day
when qor government was in its puri
ty, and matesmen ot . integrity and
honesty managed affairs of State with
the desire onryto promote -the best
interests of,. the. p'eioole and., to merit
the . commendation of the whole
country: - - V . i
"'"Equal anT exact ; justice to all men
oi wnatever tate or persuasion,- re
ligious or political. t 1 :l
l ne support of the btate govern
rats in all their rights as the surest
bulwarks against anti-republican ton
dencies J -f ;-j , ,.-. , ;
The preservation of the General
Government in its whole Constitution
al vigor, as tne 'sheet anchor of our
peace at home and safety abroad. ! '
A jealous care of the right of elec
tion by the people. ' '" X ' : ' -"
The supremacy of the civil over the i
military authority, J, yj
Economy in public expenses,, that
labor may be lightly burthened.
ncouragement of agricultdre, and
of commerce as its hand-maid. .
The honest ayment of ; our debts,
and sacred preservation of the public
faith.-' : ;-'-; - -;
The diffusion of information, . and
arraignment of all abuses at the bar
of public reason. - -
' Freedom ' of relicion, ' freedom of
speech, freedom of the press,' and free
dom of person, under the protection
of the habeas corpus, and trials by ju
ry impartially selected."
The Ottumwa Democrat says these
doctrines were good enough for Jef
ferson they were good enough for
the country during its golden period,
and all we ask is for a return to those
sacred principles. - They guided this
government through an unexampled
period of happiness and prosperity,
and it was only upon the abandon
ment of these doctrine's that misfor
tune fell upon the country, North and
South. : k. .- : 4
These are the political principles to
which the Democratic party is attach
ed, and anything which falls short of
this standard is but s . "sounding
brass, or a tinkling cymbal."
A FIGHT OVER THE SPOILS.
A couple of Grant's minions at
Washington have 'got into a lively
little skirmish over the letting of a
fat government contract, of which the
telegraph of last Monday gives the
following account : .
"On Friday-last Pleasanton awarded
a contract for furnishing paper for new
wuisk-, wvt sua looacco gianijm
Connecticut firm. The award is said
to have been made without consulting
the Secretary of the Treasury, who
disapproved of the paper and the man
ner of awarding the contract, as he
thinks the bids of other contractors
who have hitherto faithfully fulfilled
their contracts were not duly consider
ed. The Secretary, therefore, annulled
the contract. ' Pleasanton is displeased
with the Secretary's action, and in a !
correspondence with him denies the
right of the latter to interfere in con-
tracts made in the Internal Revenue
Bureau. , I aw officers of the Treasury
Department support the Secretary, and
both officers are preparing papers in
the case to present to the lreiducnt on
his return this week."
': If the stealings were less in these
Government contracts these little -disturbances
between officers whose busi
ness it is to, award them would be
less frequent. Of course the bidder
whom Bout well champions offered
Boutwell a big price for the contract,
and it isn't just the thing to have an
"underling" officer, like Pleasanton,
rush in and snatch the bone for some
one else to wag off with. It will not
be astonishing if the " bull-terrier,
trrant, compromises the difficulty by
taking the bone from both' of them
and giving it to one of his own sat
ellites. . ' ' '
Mobe Tbstimoxt. Every witness
yet .called before the Congressional
Outrage Committee has given the lie
to the report of outrages upon which
the Ku-Klux Bill was predicated, and
thus that pet measure of Grant is be
coming more infamous as the exami
nation' 'into the facts continues.
The following dispatch, dated Wash
ington, June 24, contains another ref
utation of that base, libel .upon the
Southern people; .
2 Judge i Bistee6Vof Alabama, was
examined by the Southern . Outrage
Committee. He .said he did not. be
lieve there .was any such organization
as Ku Klux in Alabama, and. person
and property are as safe there as in
any State in ihe Union. On his being
questioned as to the , testimony oi
.Rev.. M.aXaken, portions of i which
represented .that three ; indictments
had been ; found in. , Busteed's . Court
for . .violation . of ; the Civil Flights
bill, and had .been tried, but the truth
was only" one mdictnfent 'had .been
fonnd, i.ntlibat.hadnot yet been tried.
Hobace fiBKELEY is the only open
Radical candidate against Grant for
the "Presidency. 'But ."those little
creatures whom God for some inscru
table purpose permits to edit Repub
lican country newspapers" will -make
it too hot for "Old Drab" in this fightj
and he will doubtless have to subside.

The Sacrament) Eeporter says that
Democrats may , expect ' more good
news from New Hampshire v shortly.
The term of service1 of Jas. W. Pat
terson, one of the -United States Sen
ators from that. State, will expire
March 8, 1873 ; ., so the Legislature
will at its present" session have to
elect his successor. Patterson has
been one of tho most dangerous' of
the Washington usurpers, to, whose
programme he has zealously; adhered.
He has been taken by surprise by the
Democratic victory in his State, . and
the prospect before him is - anything
but cheerful; but' in retiring, from
public office he can ' as.miscry loves
company) solace hunself with the re
flection that his associates will share
the'sam'e 5 fate their-hopes -will be
blasted, and one .after, jmother they
will rapidly follow Warner, Williams,
Willey and Patterson put of the Sen
ate chamber, the doors of which will
.close upon ihem forever." ' ; Slowlyt
but surely,' that once dignified and re
vered body, the United States Senate,
is becoming Democratic again. Pat
terson will be accompanied ' into the
shades of private life by Morton, Cole,
Kellogg, Is ye, Conkling.Tool, Came
ron and Corbett. ; All of these will
reach the end of their row March 8,
1873 - the same time that Grant will
reach his. , "What a day of jubilee that
will be ! . . . .. ,t

was nominated unanimously, notwith
standing their bitter philippics against
him, and now they must of course sup
port him or whiz goes their occupation
among the Democracy. "We have sel
dom socn a more reprehensible blun
der than. those papers made in the
Gubernatorial contest, and the result
utterly prostrates them in the dust at
the feet of the Democracy of Califor
nia. As they have learned this lesson
from bitter experience, it is to be hoped
they will profit by its teachings.
As nearly every Oregon editor has
denounced the ".Orejron Style" since
the recent shooting affrays' in Salem
and Roseburg, the natural inference
would be that the arena is a more po
tent reformer than the forum. An
occasional judicious explosion of gun
powder seems as successful in purify
ing our journalistic atmosphere as is a
thunder storm in dispelling malaria.
The writer hereof confesses to an in
tense hankering after the newspajiori
al "New Departure" from the "Ore
gon Style ;" but, with all the rest of
our brethren, we solemnly insist that
it was somebody the that .''as been
doin' it, and not as! As Jasper Jot?
son and r-noch Adams have retired
from the tripod, why not lay it all to
TnE telegraph tella us that Captain
Hall has sailed from New York with
an expensive outfit to discover new
things in the Frigid Zone and at the
North Pole. We believe that this
new Arctic Expedition, at the expense
of the people, is a piece of costly folly.
Nothing more is to be learned of those
regions than we already possess.
Books, exhaustive of the subject, have
been published, with which the public
is familiar; and innumerable lectures
have been given on the "regions to the
North of us," illustrated and' other
wise. Capt. nail will be a smart man
if he can bring us home anything new.
TnE most sickening fulminations
now coming from the mongrel radical
press are those treating of the "Ku-
Klux Outrages." " Wilt nothing ever
induce these wailists to acknowledge
the disagreeable truth that if: the
northern Bpy carpet-baggers, peddlers
and covernment thieves' were called
back, we should hear no more of "Ku-
Klux Outrages." -. : ... c

like persecution fo arrest a man three

magistrate in Marion county and let
each one have a dig at himr. n ,. ;

second resolutions on the .'California
Democratic platform it is hoped that
