Scarcely Lad the ink dried an. our

death of Jno. C. Broeltq'nridge until'
wo are again called upon to record
the departure of another Democratic
statesman, Hon. Jesse D. Bright
forworljTTSi&TStafos Senator from
Indiana, who died at Baltimore Inst
Friday,'. . . . (
, , , , ,.. Mr, fright was born in New York

ted to the bar, but soon afterward
'. removed to Indiana, wliero his great
arid varied., talents, his ability as a
politician,. and bin fidelity to hispar-
... ;ty wort 'him unbounded popularity
with the ' Democrats.' He1 became
' successively Circuit Judge, State Son
, otor and Lieutenant-Qovenor of the
State. In 1845 he was elected to the
"United States Senate, and continued
"" a member of -that body until 1862,
Mr. Bright was a Democrat of the
; ultra State Bights school, and when
the civil war broke out his sympathies
' were with the Confederates. In the
i . earty Part ot 18G2, boing then amom-
ber of , the Senate from Indians, he
was charged with disloyalty to the
4 Government.' In support '! of the ae
' euBation it was1 sliown that on tho 1st
of March, 1801, he wrote a letter, ad
dressed to '". Jefferson Davis, Prasi
.. dent of the Confederate ! Statog, "
'recommending1 ' to' him o gohtlenian
,.( who was - 'anxieus to sell arms and
munitions of war to the Confederacy.
: This proof was considered sufficient
' to Subtarn the charge, and ho was ex
. pellcd.frotn ihe Sonato on the 2nd
', of February ,1802, by , a vote of 32
! to 14. . Soon afterwards he removed
to Kentucky and was elected to the
State Senate. Soveral yeurs ago, we

"iTtfst'now thai' tho xumUiugs and
muttering of the approaching na
tional conflict are beginning to be
heard in the land, there comes mixed
with it sounds the question'of "what
will wo do with the Liberal clement
of 1872, and what will be the political
affiliations of the" men who wont
with Greeley, and made that splen
did but vain attempt to break the
ranks of the dominant party? What
frill bo the status of the great Lib
oral leaders, and where will their
followers be found in the coming
great struggle?" Alroady in some
quarters there is talk of Liberal al
liances, combination? with disaffected
Republicans and a fusion of nil the
elements of opposition under some
great liberal thief, some relic of the
great disaster in 1872, Chas. Francis
Adams is mentioned, as is Judge
Davis, of the Supremo Court, and
others of that political school. The
effjrt in certain directions seems to
be, the question of trying another
amalgamation, anothor union, of in
aongruities and unnatural political
affiliatipns, a repetition of the' well
meant, but foolishly weak organiza
tion which ended in such a complete
overthrow of the opposition. We
fully believe that wo speak the son-
timents of four-iifths of tho Democ
racy of Oregon when wa heartily
echo tho words of an able Eastern
Democratic paper, which, in review
ing this important subject, positively
avers thai it "is in favor of and will
support and advocate nothing but
straight Democracy." Wo will not
run off on anothor wild goose chase
in the coming presidential campaign,
as wo did in tha last ono because a
lot of policy dodgers sniped the
party into that disastrous move. We
will not give the influence of this
papor -if , it has any to the support
and ' advocaoy of a het trogeneous
Combination formed' of men with
variety of opinions tinning upon no
essential feature and differing per
haps widely upon great political
truths.' We want no more liberal
oanipaigns 1 Tho Democracy can
nevei: win under any banner but its
own, and iU prestige to-day entitles
it not jDnly to public leadership, but
popular confidence. Tho doctrines
of Jefferson, Jackson and the' great
Jights of the party are yet living in
the hearts of thousands who followed
its grand principles to a succession
of glorious triumphs, and shorn -of
tho objoctionable features which con
tributed to its final overthrow, and
which were the natural consequences
of an agitation that could not be pre
vented, there is no reason why the
same great fundamental truths in
political economy cannot be made
popular again, and they can be and
will be nndor pure and able leader

Ave havo bad defeats enough. It
is unftecossary to rooount tho causes,

tho day of defeats is over. While
remembering its stings of disappoint
ment and pain, ' Democracy also re
membors its many and splendid vic
tories, and while the men who wore
distinguished in Domocratio councils,
and whose brilliant talonts were
qnal to any emergency, have passed
from off the stugo of political action,

not wisdom to soek strange alliances,

parly by tho introduction of ques
tions that can but divide aud destroy
it.' .-Wo listened to the voice of the
liberal loaders in 1872. Thoy were
given, as far as it was possible to
give, tho machinery and power of tho
Democratie party, and those who
meant to do their duty in the effort,
did it like men, and fought as they
never had fought before. Groaning
under a burden which was not nat-
ul, and having to fight elements
winch-was not reasonably theirs to
combat; placed on the defensive,
when they should have been the ag-
grcsaors, they (might under a bnuner
which inspired n euthusiaam and
r,iko no popular feeling, and know
ing the odds which confronted thorn,
they stood up to tho rack and did
all that courago could expect or duly
demand, and ret they marched on to
a disastrous and crushing defeat.
We want no mora forlorn hopes, no
more lights iu which the ranks of the

",lccw" U w,,.v I"'"''''" under tho
j aro Republicans at heart aud only
want to work with us to gratify some
personal grudge or party wrong, they
tor it will bo for all concorned. If
ho'.vovcr they broko wii'u their old
political affiliations, and are honest
ly desirous of effecting great . and
needed reforms and can find a home
in, and are willing to work with De
mocracy to'effect this, we give them
cordial welcome and shall be glad to
have their counsel and assistance.
But we don't want any more liberal
movements to lead the Democratic
party. That it was perhaps a desira
ble thing to consider in 7z, is an
open question and we will not stop
now to discuss it. Certain it is, how
over, that it was illy conceived and
bunglingly managed, and very natu
rally failed. We would like to ao
cord to tho men who led it, credit for
an honest purpose, but they either
lacked political . wisdom or very
thoroughly misunderstood the great
heart of the Democratic party. We
want a distinctive line of policy,
Democratic in tone and tendency, and
if Charles Francis Adams, and that
class of men, can find a resting place
for their political hopes within the
pale of a straight Democratic organ
ization, wo will gladly receive them,
and award them such prominenoe
and recognition as may be possible,
but no more entanglements. The
natural place for the liberal elements
in the country is in the ranks of De
mocracy, and it will go there, if the
party maintains an unbroken front
and presents the genuine evidences
of thorough and practical reform.
Lot the Democracy of Oregon
whose hearts never were in accord
with this Dolly Varden, Greeleyized
sort of Democracy stand firm and
be truo to their convictions and prin
ciples, and the party they love and
whose record they admire will as
sert itself again and lead the country
into a new path of honor and nation

them "to victory or to death." So it
seems that wo are to have "Tim-buc-too"

will have an easy-going thing, and
we don't blame Bedrock Shep. and

A friend on tho Washington Territo
ry side, whose good judgment is gen

enterprise he undertakes, suggests a
plan by which the newspaper press
of Orogon and Washington Territory
could give very effectual assistance

suggestion is that the newspapers
make a combined effort to raise funds
for the cause of immigration, and
that contributions be received and
transmitted by any nowflnaoor

choose to send his contributions, the
amounts so received by any paper to
bo published in the next issue after

from watery grave, although ho was
compelled to make two trips to da it.
;' The Portland' Eccmng Journal, in
alluding to sieam'.oat explosions on
the Willamette river, relates the fol
lowing interesting story connected
with the loss of the steamer Gazelle,
at' Canemah, April Sth, 1854. It says:
"Lieut; fl rover ''had' just come to Ore
gon, nnd was at Canemah on Ins way
lo Salem, 'when the fenrlul accident
occured. Ol course the Lieutenant
rendered every assistance possible,
and did, all he could to save- the
wounded and drow ning, lie savil
several nnd among them wsa a baby
girl. This was twenty-one years aga,
and only a few .months ago Lieut,
(now Colonel) Grover, led this same
infant he had rescued to the altar and
made her his wife. r , " - ! -. V
Last Saturday an . astounding ploL
lo arm the prisoners ot the State Pen
itentiary, thus enabling them to over
come the guards and make their es
cape, was divulged by a prisoner
nsmed Wilson, a partner ot the no
torious Schultz, who gave Superinten
dent Wuikinds the particulars oi the
scheme. A young man by the - name
of Arthur Cox had charge ot a gang
of prisoners employed in the black
smith shop, and according to the
statement of this man Wilson, had al
ready furnished a number of revolvers
and one shot-gun, and was to furnish
more during Saturday and Sunday
nights; and Monday morning the re
volt was to commence by threatening
the superintendent with instsnt death
if the gates were not opened end
they allowed to escape. It is sur
mised that the friends of a ; prisoner
named Alexander furnished tho mon
ey to buy the guns, and Cox was em
ployed to bring the rrms into the in-
closure by climbing over the fence
near the brick yard aud disposing of
them where tho prisoners would, by
previous arrangement, know where
to find them. i.

We find In the San Francisco Bul
letin of the 10th instant, the following
statistical information concerning the
movements of population.
It is now six years since through
n.iIrond connection between California
and the Atlantic States was effected.
The through business of the line has
been steadily increasing from the
start The principal revenue is from
passengers and freight. The number
of through passengers carried to and
from San Francisco Is annexed:

It will be seen that the railroad has
added nearly a quarter of a million
to our population. It U noteworthy
that while the arrivals during the
past year hnve been 9,000 larger
than In 1873-74, the departures have
been actually less. Tho Immigrants
which have arrived have been gen
erally of the character wanted to
develop the State.
'i A larger number of passengers ar
rived at San Francisco mt month
than for any com ;onding month in
the history of the port. The steamers
hrought us nearly 5,000 and the rail
road oyer 8,000., The number-by
rail Is larger thftn ' tor any previous
month,- and would have been still
greater but for the Interruption hy
the floods. Of those by ocean routes,
3,470 came from China and Japan, 1,
100 from New ork nnd Panama, 130
from Australia, 125 from British
Columbia and fi5 from Hex lea The
immigration from China has set In a
month earlier than usual, and hence
the large number from that section
of the world. The departures by
steamer numbered less thnn ' D00,
chiefly to China, Panama and British
Columbia, while the departures by
mil wfcre 2,443, The net gain for
the month is nearly 10,000.
