Bpeating of the slate boast of the Re
publican leaders regarding the reduc
tion of taxes shows conclusively that
the "amount of tariff taxes paid by
our people for the fiscal year ending
June 30,1870, was $194,538,874;
while the amount for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1871, was $200,270,-
400, being an increase of nearly twelve
millions of dollars over last year.-
But this is not all there is to consider
In this connection. It has been dem
onstrated by the most careful and
thorough investigation, that by the
workings of the present iniquitous
aystem of Radical tariff taxation, for
every dollar of revenue that it puts
into the Federal treasury, it takes
four more from the hands of the
laboring masses and puts into the
pockets of protected monopolists, so
that the real increase in taxation nn
der the tariff system this year over
last, h sixty miliums of dollars, in
n Timbers, a sum which will
cover all the reduction made in in
ternal revenue taxation, and leave a
n rudanee of at least thirty millions
for net increase in the burden upon

A Lively Pass. Last night at the
close of Mi6S Anthony's lecture
lively little pass at arms .was had
between that lady, Mrs. Duniway and
Mrs. J. Blakeslee Frost, who will re
ply to Miss Anthony to-night. Miss
Anthony invited any who wished to
do so, to propound to her any ques
tions they might desire to ask in re-
card to the sabiect ot her lecture.
Mrs. Frost arose and began asking
questions, when a lively scene ensued.
The sympathies of the audience seem

All three ladies manifested tact and

Portland, Sept. 25, 1871.
Editor Democrat ; . : f
Portland is very steadily lengthen
ing her cords and strengthening her
stakes. Every month witnesses a
material, though not wonderful
change. Her progress is like the
steady beat of the pulse of health
rather than the rapid flutter of a pulse
in a fitful fever. To bo sure, for a
short time last spring, about the time
a . .
so many were cxpucung an over
whelming immigration from across
the mountains, and about the time
our particular friend Ben. ' Ilolladay,
the Duke of Blow and Bluster, was
going to catch 50,000 Germans by the
nape of the neck and transport them,
nolens votois, from Bremen to Port
land to settle up the lands of tho O.
A C. R. It. Co., there was a spree of
feverish and unhealthy excitement,
and some of our real ; estate specula
tors, giving too much credence to the
assertions of land agents and our Du
cal Bombastes, and believing that we
were soon to have ' among us about
50,000 Pikes, Wolverines, Hoosiers
and Pukes, to be interfused with, the
50,000 Germans to be imported by
Ilolladay, purchased lands ; at figures
it would be difficult for them" to ob
tain to-day. The local of the Oregon
tan, about a month ago, stated that
there was a stagnation in the real es
tate market, which the leading editors
of the Oregonian and JJulletin very
pompously denied, and yet that local,
as a truthful chronicler of events, told
only the simple truth. There is a
stagnation in that market, consequent,
however, only upon the unusual and
unnatural excitement brought about
last spring by the promises of Ilolla
day and the combined efforts of our
real estate agents. Owing to tl
circumstances, matters were over
strained, and as a consequence are
now somewhat relaxed. But the nat
ural growth of the country will soon
bring these land purchasers out all
right, provided thy didn't purchase
with too short means.
Yon people, np in the cow counties,
irrespective of party, are now, doubt
lessly, most grateful to tho last Legis
lature for passing the Lock and Canal
bill, by which the produce of our rich
valley can find passage to the sea
board without being subjected to the
exaction of a monopoly. . '
By the purchase of the P. T. Com
pany's boats, Ilolladay has absolute
control and mastery over the produc
tions of the Willamette Valley until
such time as the locks shall be com
pleted. A great responsibility there
fore rests upon the Canal and Lock
Company, and one which the entire
people of the v?hole valley have a
right to demand shall be executed in
ood faith. Knowing the men' who
own the majority of the stock of that
company, I believe they will prose
cute the work as contemplated. They
are men who could illy afford to prove
unfaithful to their trust, and who will,
therelore, proceed witli the work and
disappoint Holladay, who, without
doubt, contemplates getting control
of a majority of the stock of that
company and then allow the project
to go by default. - In fact I am now
told that that conceited man, in speak
ing of the Willamette Valley, calls it
my valley." Well, in one sense, it
was his "valley of humiliation," one
year ago last June, and it be pokes
his nose in politics next year it will be
again. . '.-.'
I see our old friend Flaxbrake
hanging around Portland lately with,
nothing in the world to do. He has
come back here to look out for a
chance to go back to the Senate
again, and the little clique of one
horse politicians that revolve around
Holladay, really imagine' that., the
Radicals are going to carry Oregon
next spring, and thus give Flaxbrake
another term in the Senate. But I
can assure our old friend that be has
not the ghost of a chance of ever get
ting back there, and that instead of
loafing around the streets it would be
much better for him, and far more' re
spectable, if he would get a buck-saw
and go to sawing cord word for an
honest living. " " ...' r''
This little clique I have mentioned
base their hopes of defeating the De
mocracy of this State on the suppo-1
sition that we will be divided on what
is called the "new departure,4 a ques
tion concerning which there is really
no difference among 'the Democracy
of Oregon. For instance, let us sup
pose that the next Democratic State
Convention should lay down a plank
in substance as follows: "Resolved,
that the Democracy of Oregon r will
never consent to any, departure from
the time-honored faith and principles
of their party, that they insist as
heretofore that the two last' Amend
ments to the Constitution were foisted
therein by means fraudulent and rev
olutionary, but that inasmuch as they
have been decided to be amendments
by the legally constituted authorities
of the government, the people are in
duty bound to recognize them as such
de facto, until the same shall have been
declared void by the "courts, or: shall
have been modified or repealed in fa
legal manner;"; is there a Democrat
in Oregon who would seriously object
to it? The difference among the De
mocracy in regard to , the "new . de
parture" so-called is more fancied
than real, as the Radicals will find to
their cost. ;; I see that some of 'our
State journals attribute the defeat of
the Democracy in California tp the
adoption of a part of tho Ohio plat
form, but tho Jixaminer expresses my
belief, and I endeavored to 'Watch the
canvass very closely, when it says that
tW new departure Question was is-
norecV almost entirely, and 'that the
cause of the defeat was the fact that
Ilaight thrust himself upon the party
by the aid of his office-holders after
having repeatodly declared that ho

new departure, that wrought our de
feat in California. Tho "old liners"

men who endeavor to force their
nominations upon conventions by any
system of packing.
