PENNSYLVANIA RFPliPUCAH STATE
Contrary to ur expectation llie
Pennsylvania RciulIicans adopted ;
a resolution by a email majority in-!
structin the delegates to the Na !
tional Convention, from that State,
to vote for Gen. Grant, for President.
This shows very clearly the powerful !
influence of the Cameron in the old
Keystone State, and so far as it roes
is a triumph for that family arid third
termers, generally. The writer of!
this article is well acquainted with j
Strong of Tioga, who offered the j
resolution to strike ont the name of I
Grant, and insert the name of F.laine j
in the resolution, and will do Mr. I
Strong the justice to Fay that without J
doubt, he thought he was doing the j
best thing for his party; but lie
should have made Ids effort in our
opinion, from a higher and nobler j
standpoint. It should not have been
a question ofGrant, orBlaine, or Sher
man, or any other of the many names,
mentioned in connection with this of
fice; but it should have been a square, I

Jetteiiavo f'alWJ while working
on this line, than to have won, on the
basis upon which he presented the
matter and engaged his splendi.i
talent to defend. Just before this
convention assembled, out of 66
county newspapers in that State 51
expressed a preference for other can
didates than Grant. There is no
doubt, that, the unwritten law against
third terms of Presidential aspirants
is engraven on the hearts of the mas
ses, with indellible characters; and
the sentiments so deeply imbedded
in their natures, will make itself felt,
when the time comes for selecting
the Republican standard bearers ioi
the National contest of '80.
We are firmly impressed, with the
idea that this move by the Pennsyl
vania Republicans, will yet redound
greatly to the advantage of the Re
publican cause generally. This move
of the Pennsylvania stalwarts upon
the political chess board is made
with patriotic motives, and will no
doubt help to check mate some of
the macinations of the Sage of Cy
We shall note with increased in
terest, the action of Republicans in
other States, and endeavor to keep
abreast ot the tide, that we may be
able to discern what is in the near
future for the party that saved the
nation, and redeemed its credit.
General Lane. It is rumored
that General Joe Lane, formerly TJ.
S. Senator from this State, an who
lately aided by a lew of untenfied
prepared and sent out to the world,
that immortal document the Demo
cratic address for 1880, always writes
the word God with a little 44 g." This
is likely a slander, as he always writes
the word democrat with a big " D"
and the word nation with a little
"n," in accordance with the most ap
proved and latest style as taught by
" Okalona Southern States."
'he New York Times recently
eaid that whenever Grant should be
come an active contestant for the
Presidency, that is, when ho should
engage in active intrigues or efforts
to secure delegations, or fractions ot
delegations to the Chicago Conven
tion, he would be virtually out of the
isaoe. Now this is just what has been
done, through his backers, in Penn
sylvania, and what he will attempt
in other States. But it will arouse
nj2PpBUion tnat w'-- " Put h',n out
of tiife race." The Tbnes is right.

PROPER STEPS TO GOOD MUSIC.
Editor Gazette: The concentra
tion of afl classes, representing all
interests of trade and business, in
urging on the attention of Congress
by petition the benefits certain to
follow nu appropriation for the im
provement of Yaquina Bay, is a step
in the right direction, and not a day
too soon. The prompt support of the
valley press, followed by favorable
comment in the Oregonian and Wil
lamette Farmer, is the result of a
public demand long neglected, and
the papers of Portland coming to
the rescue at this time deserve well
of the people, and as long as they
subserve public interests and main
tain the correct position, that no
point in Oregon can be advanced at
the expense of some other locality,
that general development is better
than local, patronage will be given
freely, on the principle that one good
turn deserves another.
There are other considerations con
nected with this subject of railroad
communication through the Coast
range and Willamette valley to Cen
tral Eastern Oregon, in addition to
those often mentioned. Where
natural surroundings are favorable
for manufacturing purposes, and
facilities for transportation, the siu
ation of Albany, for instance, be
comes important. She will be acces
sible by rail from the north, south,
east and west, with water carriage
possible three fourths ot the year.
Woolen and other factories there can
obtain the raw material from the
Coast and Cascade ranges and north
ern southern Ortgon. Corvallis, by
neglecting to secure water power
years ago, lost great ly, and she can
only retrieve lost ground by moving
promptly now. Iler posiiion other
wise is excellent. Every town in
the valley has some dormant indus
try certain to bring it prosperity, by
the rapid increase of population ami
wealth sure to follow the completion
of the railroad to the seaboard. So
while the band is playing and the air
is filled with the music of progress,
let us keep step until the steady
tramp of thousands marching in the
line of duty to themselves, the State
and government reaches Congress.
Never " break ranks " until the yeas
ami nays are taken on that item in
the appropriations for harbor itn
provements, of such vast importance
to the State of Oregon.
The steamer Alex. Punean, Capt.
James Carroll, from San Francisco
and way ports, with 30 tons of goods
for Si lei z agency, arrived on the 6th.
She came in and passed out carrying
18 feet of water. The captain speaks
confidently regarding the harbor;
says it can be improved easily and
permanently. The Duncan has added
six double state rooms below, with
dining hall. She is refittek in good
style, with first class nccoinmoda
tionns. She was furnished a new
boiler, and thoroughly overhauled,
and will run south as often as re
quired, giving the assurance of regu
far communication between ports
north ami south of Astoria and Port
land at least once a month.
Newport, Feb. 7, 1880.
Congress owes it to itself to grant
as soon as possible the pension which
the aged widow of one the most dis
tinguished of all our naval heroes, the
late Admiral Paulding, so earntstly
seeks and so urgently needs. At the
end of 67 years of illustrious service
to his country, and at the age 81, Ad
miral Paulding, the lr-st survivor of
the famous battle of Lake Champlain,
died less than two years ago, leaving
to his family only his fame and a small
heavily mortgaged farm on Long Is
land. His widow, seventy two years
old, asks from the government the
small sum which is customary to give
to the survivors of the gallant officers,
like her husband, who have deserved
so well of the Republic. For the
sake of the honor of the country it is
to be hoped the prayer of this vener
able lady will bo immediately grant

FROM LOWER ALSEA.
Editor Gazette: After an ex
ceptional spell of inclement weather,
we have now such beautiful weather
that we feel like speaking aloud.
You of the valley must experience a
very unusual hard winter, but as our
climate here is more temperate, we
do not notice it so much.
Stock hereabouts has generally
kept up well, with but very little loss.
Squire Hunsaker has lost several head
of sheep, owing to the range being

This is certainly a desirable part of

Have we an Indian reservation ?
Have we an Indian agent, and have
we not appropriations to support the

made regulations to keep these In

an agent there and paid him for keep

power and authority to compel them
to remain upon the reservation ?
What is the use of all this Siwash

on the white man's land ? There is
a great deal of the land already set

and stay out of it, and give way to
civilization, and nothing short of this
will do us.

GREENBACK MEETING AT PHILOMATH.
Editor Gazette: Knowing that
politics will be the order of the day
for some time, I wish to report some
of the proceedings of the Philomath
Greenback Club which held a meet
ing to-day at the school house. Mr.
G. B. Smith wasthe principle speaker.
This gentlman set forth in most glow
ing terms the condition of the coun
try, said we were drifting as rapidly
as possible into despotism and im
perialism and if a change was not
wrought soon we would be gone np
as a nation. He said it was the
Greenback party against Republi
cans, Democrats and every thing
else. I thought if wo had to depend
upon Brick Pomeroy as the head, and
this club as the tail, for reformation,
our case indeed was a hopeless one.
The speaker was in favor of green
backs and inflation and opposed to
hard money and resumption of specie
payment the very salvation of our
country. It is a strange thing that
a man with as much good jfcense as
Mr. Smith has,
and absurd thi
move, a moK
S. has more at
stake than any other man in the
county, and yet he is agitating and
encouraging the very principl
which, ifsKscessfu!, would domore
unsettle the business ot tlie
than all other causes commnet
cording to his statement the people
should resort to the bayonet, to re
dress their wrongs or rather their im
aginary wrongs. This would lead to
revolution, and an other bloody war,
when if let alonp, the nation will
honorably and justly settle all her
obligations, and still be one of the
best governments the world has ever
known.- Just such agitation has
caused all our strikes and the loss of
millions of property. The floating
class of men, who have but little at
stake, and care less for the welfare
of the country, are easy stiied up to
commit acts of violence, and people
should be very careful how they fore
stall the downfall of the country.
Mr. Smith also stated that it was
money that brought, the war to a
close as much as to say all who
fought "to sustain the government
were bought off for a few thousand
dollars. This is a fine compliment (?)
to the halt million brave men who
fell upon a thousand battle fields,
fighting for their country. Money
was no object to them. They fought
for higher and grander motives. Let
them rest in peace, and those who
survive them rema'n true to the
trust that was committed to their
I do not see how a cause can he
just which has for its leader, snch
dangerous and unscrupulous men as
Pomeroy, a man whose fidelity and
patriotism are just as deep as the
money he can make out of it.

others, made short speeches, setting
forth the aims and objects of the
The officers elected for the ensuing
term, were John Mays, president ;
