THE ANNIE STEWART.
By invitation, we stepped aboard the
splendid steamer Annie Stewart, at
Moffett's wharf, Portland, on Tuesday
last, and made a voyage up the Will
amette to Oswego and back. The boat
was in charge of Captain Kellogg, with
Captain Gilman, one of the owners, as
directing engineer. This steamer has
undergone a thorough overhauling, hav
ing been fitted with new machinery,
and an immense boiler of the heaviest
iron in use, having stood a test of 240
pounds to the the square inch. But 60
pounds of steam was carried, yet the
symmetrical craft glided through the
water at a speed equal to that of any
boat on the river. Every part of the
machinery worked to the perfect satis
faction of the engineer, and the boat
was found to handle with ease. Mon
day next is the day set for the trial trip
of this vessel, after which she will be
put on the upper river until the Govern
or Grover is readv to run. A number
of guests will be invited on this trip,
who will be sumptuously entertained by
the owners. It is proposed to pass
through the locks, and ascend
the Willamette to Harrisburg, if the
Btaee of water will permit. Should this
boat be able to reach Corvallis, its citi
zens should be prepared to entertain the
company on shore in a befitting manner,
and give an earnest of the feeling held
by this community for the company who
bave labored so energetically in estab
lishing an opposition to the monopoly
which has so long fleeced our people by
exorbitant freight tariffs. Let us give
the Annie and her guests a rousing
The Modoc Peace Commissioners
are at loggerheads. Case, with a true
conception ot the matter, contends for
unconditional surrender of the savage
horde, with a view to the punishment
of the murderers, while Meacham and
Applegate favor a conciliatory policy.
Meacham has sent a telegram to Super
mtendent Odeneal, requesting his aid
in the settlement of the question, which
request Odeneal was compelled to de
- cline acceding to, as he was ordered
on duty among the Nez Percea. The
solution of the Modoc question is still a
snbjett for future consideration.

Superintendent Odeneal has been
ordered by the Indian Department, at
Washington, to proceed to the Wallowa
Valley, and arrange for the peaceful
settlement of the impending troubles
with the Joseph band of the Nez Perce
Indians, and to arrange either for their
removal to- a Reservation, or for their
occupation of the Wallowa Valley, to
the exclusion of the white settlers.

an honorable man, and if invited to

ixquiry aboutbeston cousty.
Henry T. Wilkerson, of Mayfield,
Ky., writes to a gentleman of this city,
under date of February 5th, as follows:
Sib : I desire to emigrate to your
State, and enclose stamped envelope,
hoping you will lavor me with a descrip
tion ot the land in your county, its pro
ductions, amount it will produce per
acre, facilities for raising stock, price,
tin-ber, and in short such general inform
ation as will be of use to me in the' se
lection of a future home. Is there a
railroad in operation in your couut', or
a prospect of one soon- i If you have a
County paper please send me a copy.
I enclose stamp for the same. Await
ing a reply at your earliest convenience,
I am, Yours very respectfvlly.
Henry T. "Wilkerson.
If some intelligent farmer will favor
us with answers to the above inquiries,
we will publish them, not only for the
benefit of Mr. Wilkerson, but hundreds
of others in the Eastern States, who
are seeking information concerning our
young and growing State. We have
sent to Mr. Wilkerson a copy or the
Democrat as requested.
Scarcely a week passes that we, or
some of our friends, do not receive let
ters of inquiry similar to the one pub
lished above. The general hard times
experienced at present throughout the
States, both North and South, especial
ly by the farming community, is caus
ing thousands of people to look to the
new States of the far West for homes.
Oregon, with her salubrious climate, her
rich agricultural lands,her inexhausti
ble forests, her splendid water powers,
her rich and varied mineral deposits,
and her unequaled facilities for stock
raising, offers inducements to the settler,
which are peculiar to herself alone, and
which are unsurpassed by any of the
most favored portions of iflnerica. -
While the people of the Northern
States have been snowed under to the
depth of from two to twenty feet, with
ice of any desired thickness and more
too. we, ot " Webfuot," have seen the
ground covered with snow but once du
ring the winter, aud then but for an
hour or two ; and have been compelled
to send abroad for ice to cool our drinks,
While the farmers in the Atlantic States
are feeding their last year's crops to
shivering, half-frozen stock, horses, cat
tle, sheep and hogs have kept hi geod
condition, in Oregon, without a mouth
ful of food save such as they procured
from pastures of nature's own planting,
With such advantages, Oregon has
but to be known to receive what she at
present stands most in need of an im
migration of economical, industrious
farmers, who will build up for them
selves homes of beauty and plenty, aud
develop the resources of our country
and add much to the wealth and pros
perity of our State.
We propose to publish all informa
tion which we can obtain, aud ask our
friends to assist us. Any communica
tions will receive careful attention, aud,
as the Benton Democrat has a large
and increasing circulation throughout
the Western and Southwestern States,
no better method of communicating in
formation can be devised, than through

THE PEACE COMMISSON.
The telegraph gives us but imperfect
accounts of the workings of the Peace
Commission-in the Modoc country, but,
as far as we can learn, Captain Jack
has the best of the talk. The Commis
sioners are not harmonious, Meacham
abjectly suing for peace, while Case
thinks that the Government of the Uni
ted States is strong enough to subdue
a band of 150 savage murderers, and
bring them to justice. Meantime Ap
plegate devotes his time and energies
to an imbecile . attempt to reconstruct
Gov. Grover. Meacham and Applegate
claim that the object of the Peace Com
mission is to effect a compromise with
this " honorable man," and save the ex
pense of whipping him and his band.
This is excellent sophistry, and may
deceive those at a distance, who do not
know that the keeping of the army in
active, is costing the Government as
much as it would if. in active service,
since the troops are within a few miles
of the head-quarters of this band of
cut-throats ; but it will hardly go down
with those near by, whose homes have
been destroyed, friends murdered, and
property stolen by these red devils
The citizens of that section feel very
much discouraged at the prospect. Loss
of time in whipping the Mqdocs is death
to them, as the Indians are still killing
their cattle, burning their bouses and
keeping the people in fear and suspense
for the lives of themselves and families
Judge A. M. Roseborough, of Yreka,
has been appointed by the J President,
as an additional member of the Commis
sion, and, as he, together with Steele
and Fairchild, are claimed by Captain
Jack as warm friends, strong fears are
entertained that the result of the con
ference will be disastrous to the white
settlers. They can see but little differ
ence between Koseborough, Steele and
Shack-Nasty Jim as Commissioner to
treat with Captain Jack,
Were the cost of the Commission and
the support of the army the only evils
resulting from this arrant humbug,, we
should care but little ; but it is a well
known fact that the Indians throughout
Oregon are restless, and any concessions
made to the Modocs will be construed
by them, and by the Indians on all the
Reservations, as so many evidences of
weakness aud tear on the part of the
United States authorities ; and 4 will
bear their fruits in insurrections aud
outbreaks, on many of the Reserves'.
Already have a portion of the Nez Per-
ces and the Snakes on the fort Hall
aud Harney Lake Reserves sounded the
note of defiance, and should the Modocs
now get paid for making a hollow and
rotten peace, instead of being punished
for their crimes as they deserve, the re
sult will be that other tribes will follow
their example, hopiug for like results,
We anxiously await the issue of this
farce, hoping that General Gillem will
be permitted to conquer a- peace which
shall be permanent, the terms of which
shall be written in the blood of the last
thieving Modoc that has helped to make
the lava beds a place of note.

The Alliance organized by the election
of Miles Miller, of Salem, as Secretary
pro tern, Rev. J. H. D. Henderson, "Vice
President, in the chair. , While the re
port of the Committee on Credentialswas
under consideration, a scene of discord
and disturbance arose which defies des
cription. Mrs. Duniway, who last year
got away with the Alliance single hand
ed and alone, was on hand, reinforced by
a number of delegates from the "Woman
Suffrage Convention" recently held at
Portland. The opposition met her with I
a bold front, determined to vanquish her
at the beginning, and therefore reported
adversely to the admission of the " old
hen " and her brood, upon the ground
that the said delegation were part and
parcel of a political organization.. But
they had reckoned without their host.
as the following extracts from the spe
cial report to the Oregonian will show :
The report contained the following
That Mrs. Dni way, a duly accredited
delegate from the State Woman's Suff
rage Association, be not admitted; as in

The Chair ruled the poiat not well

should be adopted, one person was a
member as much as another.
Mr. Ford appealed from the decision
of the Chair, arguing that none but.

with loud hisses,
The hasty exclamation of Judge
Thornton aroused Mrs. Duniway, who
remonstrated with that gentleman upon
his intolerant spirit.
Several persons in the rear ot the hall
began a disturbance which, spreading
rapidly, rendered it impossible to hear
the lady s voice.
Amid great turbulence, a motion was
made to instruct the Sergeant-at-arms to

Mr. Ford rose to a point of order ;
that the effect of indefinitely postponing
the Cann amendment was to carry the
whole matter along with it.
The Chair refused so to rule.
Mr. Wooden roared a herce roar
which fell like lead upon the ears of
the worthy President, who peremptorily
ordered the recalcitrant Wooden to be

afforded occasion for loud applause,

This finished the labors of the meet

of the better and more sensible portion
of the delegates, disgusted at the inde
cent proceedings, withdrew from tbe
Alliance and issued a call for a meetieg

the purpose of organizing a Temperance

of refinement can participate without
