John W'hiteaker for Representative of Ore gon in the Federal Congress by the late Democratic State Convention, was something more than the compliment of a grateful party to an honest public servant who had already done the faith ful part oi a representative citizen iu the responsible position of a Governor and a btate Semi tor. It was moro than the selection of a man from the party ranks merely on tho ground of availa bility. It was a discarding of prece dent and th inauguration of a new or der of things , which threw overboard the geography. Hitherto, no Congressman nor Unit ted States Senator has ever been twice elected from this State, to serve two consecutive terms; and in our opinion, the State has been the loser by it more than once, ' Let the East elect ever so competent and ablo a Representative to Congress, and the very next State Con vention weuld supplant him with a man from the Willamette or Umpqua. Sectional interests were made para mount to ability, experience and all those weightier considerations by which intelligent parties should hope to pre serve their integrity, and intelligent party leaders aim to maintain their as cendancy. Ihe renomination of John vhitea- ker means something better and more liberal for the future; it means that a moro intelligent and less bigoted cla.s3 of men are lieing sent to our State Con ventions. It means that a man's pre ferment, hereafter, will depend more upon his reputation for honesty and ability than upon his place of residence. And it does not mean that Oregon m the saccharine futurity, will say to those who have upheld her name and fame with becoming dignity, "Well done thou good and faithful Bcrvant, take thou a back seat" Those who visited the city of Port land, during the past weak, wit nessed a tierce struggle in tho ranks of the Radical party. On the one hand, the sober cautious and reflecting ele ment of that party was seeking to nom inate some other man than a Federal appointee or the tool of a ring; on the other hand every nerve strained to pro cure tho nomination of a niar.liino poli tician. Everything betokens a divis ion in the ranks of that party. Ono wing trying to defeat the corrupt ends of a few men who had all tho engines of the party under control; tho other whirl ing madly on toward centralism and total disregard of all popular right and decency. No such unhappy dissentions dark ens the party of which the sturdy old farmer of Cloverdale is the standard bearer. Proud of his command, they wheel into line and will be invincible at the ballot box. It has been said that no successful fight can be made on a man who is absent from the State, because he is not here in person to de fend himself. Our answer is that J ohn Whiteaker needs no defense. His acts are a matter of public record, a record that he could not change if he would and one so plain that "he, who runs may read.' As Governor lie kept the State out of debt at a time when her resources were a tithe of what they now are. As State Senator, his vote was always uron the principle of "the greatest good to tho greatest number." And as a Representative, the only Democrat from the Pacific Slope, he has nobly upheld the dignity of both State and party. There can be tio reas onable doubt of his re-election. Most Horrible. A correspondent to a London, Eng land, paper, says that it is believed that tho Rurmese government lias de cided to meet the wishes of the Rritish government, and it is probable that early permission will be given the uur mese embassy to proceed to Calcutta. The writer also states that the rumors of the death of King Thelaw are un founded, ad that small pox is raging in Mindaly and the heir apparent has died of the disease. Another corres pondent from Bunnah says that Man tlalay astrologers maintain that in or der to remove evil influences, great pro pi tiary sacrifices is requisite. Victims will be taken from all ranks to the number of 400. The priests contribute 100, the remainder are to be made up of men, women and children. Many arrests have been made to secure the number of victims. The priests, who have hitherto enjoyed immunity from sacrifices, are quitting Mandalay in irreat numbers. A Catholic convent was entered to procure victims from among the girls thpre, but the attempt was frustrated. The condition of the country is most unsatisfactory. It is said of Sir Isaac Newton's neph ew, who was a clergyman, that he al ways refused a marriage fe, saying with much pleasantry: "Oo your way, Door children; I have done you mis chief enough already without taking your money." NT ATE XEW8. Diphtheria makes mourning on the Coquille. Diphtheria prevails about Elkton, Douglas county. The Post ofllce at Silver Lake, Lake county, has been discontinued. The loss of Btock in Sprague River valley is estimated at one halt Lake county papers are filled with complaints concerning the climatio de pravity of that region. President Villard offers to contrib ute $1,000 toward a plank road from Canyonville to Roseburg. Since the death of W. B. Carter, James A. Yantis, Esq., is to take charge of the Corvallis Gazette.

Bond's saloon at Weston was enter ed by burglars one night last week and robbed of articles of small value. ThaCoos Bay News says working- men on the liar get $3 a (lay; mechan ics H 50, and work rain or shine. They saw wood tho proper length and drive it down Catharino creek to supply citizens of the Grand Rondo valley.

Tho Examiner learns that Titt river was very high about tho middle of the month, and that water was two feet deep in tho streets of Alturas. The Benton Blade says W. A. Wells is to build a mammoth warehouse at Cor- allis, to cost 3,700, capacity 90,000 buhhcls,and machinery to cost $2,300.

From Flumeville, Umatilla county: Crops generally look very promising, although some few of the farmers have had to sow a second time, on account of the dry freezing weather during the latter part of tho winter. Astorian: It has been suggested that steps be taken to kill off tho sea lions in tins bay, which are a great an noyance to fisherman. We presume Uncle Sam would not object to an oil factory being put up on Sand Island to further the purpose.

He excit ed no more enthusiasm thau' a hail (storm in July. Wha; Did Paul Say. Maiiy years ago there lived in Vir ginia a Baptist preacher named B . though uneducated, he was a sound thinker and eloquent speaker, and no minister had a more devoted flock. It was the custom during the inclem ent season, to hold meeting at the resi dence of the members and once or twice during the winter, at the house of a preacher. For years it was observed that B neither preached nor conducted the meeting when held at his house, but secured the services of a neighboring minister. He was often pressed for an expla nation, without success; but finally in response to the importunities of somo of his flock, he gave the following: "When I was younger than I ant now in fact not long after tho com mencement of my ministration I held a meeting at my own house. It being customary for many of- the con gregation to remain to dinner, Mrs. -, sent my boy, Tim, to our neigh bor Taul's for some butter. Tim returned, and located himself standing on the outskirts of the congregation. Heing well warmed up tn my sermon, thinking neither of Tim or his errand, but only of the most successful mode of pressing homo my strongest argu ments, I demanded with all the energy in my power: "What did Paul sayr . ' Tim, at tho top of his little squeak ing voice exclaimed, as only Tim could have dono: , "He said that you couldn't get any more until you had paid for what you had got" "lhis brought down tho house and cut short one of the finest efforts of my early ministry. Since then I have kept my preaching disconnected from my domestic affairs. Slit wm afraid. . A man was once walking along one road, and a woman along another. The two roads finally united and man and woman reaching tho junction at the samo time, walked on together. The man was carrying a large iron kettle on his back; in one hand he held by the leg a live chicken; in the other a cane, and was loading a goat Just as they were coining to a deep, dark ravine, tho woman said to the man: "I am afraid to go through that ra vine with you; it is a lonely place, and you might overpower me and kiss me by force." "If you aro afraid of that," said tho man, "you shouldn't have walked with me at all; how can I possibly overpow er you and kiss you by force, when I have this great iron kettle on my back, a cane in one hond and a live chicken in the other, and am leading a goatl I might as. well be tied hand and foot "Yes," replied the woman, "but if you should stick your cane into the ground and tio the goat to it, and turn , your kettlo bottom side up and put your chicken into it,; then you might ' l. li 1 ; . T. wicseuiy kiss me in Bpice oi my resist ance. "Success to thy ingenuity, O, wom an!" said the rejoicing man to himself; "I should never havo thought of such an expedient" And when they came to the ravine he stuck his cane in the ground, and tied the goat to it, gave the chicken to the woman saying: "Hold it while I cut some grass for the goat," and then lowering the kettle from his back imprisoned the chicken under it, and wickedly kissed tho woman as she was afraid ho would At a recent meeting of the Southern Historical Society, in Lou.siania, an apron mode in the semblance of a Con federate (lag was shown and its history told. In the spring of 1863 the Elev enth Virginia Cavalry passed through Hagerstown, weury, discouraged and pursued by Federal troops. A young girl stood iu the doorway, wearing this apron. The soldiers cheered enthusias tically, and the Colonel asked her to give him a piece of it for a memento. "You may have it all," she said and it was carried with the regimental colors into tattle on the following day. ' The youthful soldier who bore it was mort ally wounded, but he saved the apron from capture by hiding it in his bosom. A clergyman asked his Sunday school: "With what remarkable weap on did Sampson at one time slay a nuniW of lliilistinesl" For a while there was no answer; and the clergy man, to ansist the children a little, commenced tapping his jaw with the tip of his fing"r, saying: "Wliat's this! what's this!" Quick as thought a little fellow innocently replied: "The jaw J bone of an ass, sir." The Hiila'lt lphia Tiroes says: There is an authoritative statement that sixty one members of the Republican State Central Committee of Louisiana are office-holders. News of this kind ought to be kept from the President, if possi ble; he has a great deal, to bear, and this woulp break him down entirely.
