GOT. GEAEY OS GUAHT.
Governor Geary, of Pennsylvania,
in his . message to the Legislature
very properly spoke ia condemna
tion of the infamous- "bayonet act"
passed by the last Congress and en
dorsed by Grant. A number of Fed
eral officials remonstrated with Geary
in reference to the stand he took and
in reply to them he said: "Perhaps
Grant don't like my position ; on the
bayonet question,' but I . can't help
it. As the Governor of this com
monwealth, I was bound in my mes-
..eige to allude to- that, and to con
dean the action of the General Gov

Philadelphia, during the election of

question u who gave Grant his cottage
at Long Branch," says John Cham

proprietor of the gambling hell on
Twenty-fifth street, New York, and
ewner of the Clnb House and race
course at Long Branch is among the
subscribers to the . fond which pur
chased Grant's seaside cottage. The
information comes" so direct that we
' have no reason to question it. The
gift was made early Jast season, about
the time President Grant took pos
session, of 'that valuable piece of prop
erty.' Humiliating as Grant's course
has been throughout his Presidential
term, how much does it add to that
humiliation in the eyes of the staid
-peopla of the L iteu btates to have it
TA&idj proclaimed that his princely

that should be devoted to the duties

Ochoco Valley, O'gn.,
AcocTiTlia, 1871 ,
Editor Democrat i
Your issue ot July 21st is just in
hand in which a very littlo mistako is
made by the correspondent, James
Whoclan, which permit me to correct.
Ho sayu "the Ochoco country is
nearly eaten out, and cattlo aro very
much poorer there than iu many other
valleys in Eastern Oregon. I learn
that cattle are cheaper there than" in
the Willamette Valley." Now, to
say the least, the above is a very small
error, showing a lack of personal ob
servation, or that prejudice . and cred
ulity inspired the pen. -
Had the gentleman not stopped on
Crooked, liiver, indulging, perhaps,
in Crooked acquia and having a jolly
time on the glorious Fourth, but pro
ceeded up the Ochoco valley, he
would save seen thousands of enclos
ed acres teeming with golden grain,
nutritious grass, and vegetables, and
fat cattlo and sheep grazing on the
hills on the inexhaustible bunch grass
of the richest varieties, besides hun
dreds of tons of stacked hay, not yet
needed, being the accumulation of the
past threo years; ho would also have
seen, dotted along every quarter or a
half mile, comfortable houses, with
healthy, rosy-checked girls and boy3
rolicking around gay and happy, and
would have imagined himself in the
sainted land. .
To'the compliment he pays to "Wil
low Creek and other valleys of East
ern Oregon no exception is taken ;
they deserve all, yea! more! but let
mo say Ochoco. needs no blowing;
simple truth and justice aro only re
quired. She can, and will, and docs
speak for herself. This season has
proven beyond cavil that by irrigation
(which she abundantly commands) and
proper seeding, 40 to CO bushels of
wheat, and other cereals and vegeta
bles in corresponding proportion, can
easily be produced, per acre, annually,
without fail. Can this yield bo beat
en in any country ?
A residence in this valley of over
three years gives me a truthful knowl
edge of this delightful country, and I
do verily believe it was just such a
country as this that Methuselah and
other patriarchs of old lived to have
attained such longevity. I write for
the general benefit of the community,
particularly seekers of health, happy
homes, and fortunes, and truthfully
say that for healty climate, produc
tive soil, and inexhaustible stock
ranges this country cannot be beaten
on this sphere.
Here an Esculapian or Pharmaceut
ist would starve, having no other
means to obtain the "staff of We." I
am creditably informed that our ob
liging store-keeper, Mr. Hiesler, on
settling here, stocked his store with
considerable medicine and found it
truly to be "drugs on band ;n he was
about to throw them to the dogs, but
effected a transfer to our estimable
chief magistrate Vanderpool, J. P.,
who, thus far, has had no use for salts,
pills, and epacacuana to arrest dis
turbers of the peace and quietness of
the community. ;
Seekers of homes, after endurintr
the toil in crossing the Cascades, on
arriving at Crooked Kiver and there
viewing a wild and barren waste,
should not be dissappointed and turn
about face for home, giving an erron
eous description of the country of
which they only touched the outside
edge. Let them enter into the heart
of Ochoco, taking time, being patient
and honest in investigating, and they
will soon find the things most sought
after, viz : a healthy climate, product
ive soil, and inexhaustible stock ran
ges, which will give happy homes and
fortunes by taking off that "Webfoot"
coat and going to work.
I have no desire to depopulate your
beautiful and bountiful valley, but the
truth must be told ; it wrongs none,
yet sometimes leaves a sore to be pu
rified. Yours truly,
Henry F. Smith.
J itbilatiitg. We see by the Port
land papers that the Republicans of
that city held a jubilee; the other
evening, over the result of the Cali
fornia election. Williams and Cor
bett addressed the meeting. These
gentlemen are rival candidates for re
election to the U. S. Senate, and they,
of course, imagine they see a ray of
hope in the defeat of ..the .California
Democracy. If the next legislature of
Oregon should be unanimously Re
publican neither of them could by any
possibility be returned to the Senate.
Considering the certainty of that body
having a Democratic majority and
the failure of Williams, at , the last
session, to secure a re-election by base
ana corrupt means we see little to
cause him to rejoice at this time.
! Chaste And Dignified. The
Oregonian, in the exuberence of its
joy over the ' California Republican
triumph forgets its assumed decency
and exclaims "What will be the next
move of the tag-rag political elements
opposed to the triumphant and invin
cible Republican party?" How. dig
nified for a metropolitan journal.

Is a blessing vouchsafed to a few. Even those
who bare been favored by nature with strong
constitutions and vigorous frame are apt t.
neglect tho precautions neccsiary to preserve
these precious endowments. Indeed, as a rule,
the more healthy and robust a man is, the more
liberties be ia inclined to take with bis own
pbystyuc. It is some consolation to tbe tiatu
rally weak and feeble to know that tbey can
be so invigorated and bniit up, by a proper an
of tbe means wbicb science has plaee4 at their
disposal, as to have a much better chance of
lung lite, aod exemptions from disease and pain,
than tbe most athletic of their fellows wbo are
foolish enough to suppiso themselves invulner
able, and act accordingly.
It is nut too much to say that more than half
the people lo tbe civilized world need an occa
sional tonic, to enable tbrm t sopport the strain
upon their bodies and minds, wbich the fast life
of this restless age occasions. In fact, a pure.
wnolesnme. unexciting tonie is the grand desid
aratom of tbe btsy millions, and tbey bare tbe
article in Hosteller's fctomech Ui'ters. It is a
lauinal medicine, I. e. it imparts permanent
strength to weak systems and invigorates deli
cate constitutions. Its reputation and its sales
bave steadily increased. Competitive prepara
tions bare been introduced ad libitum, and, as
far aa the public is concerned, ad naumrum. in
the br.pe of rivaling it ; but they have ail cither
perished in tbe attempt, or been left far in tbe
rear. It has been tbe great medical succe'l of
tbe present century, and it U quite certain that
no proprietary medicine in this country is as
widely known, or as generally nsed.
