Tom Darling nas a darling Tom,
(Ktcuso nil TiilRnr puns )
A typo of Cnllfornla'a bright
lilting and setting sons.
Hit father was an austero man
An oystcrman was he,
Who opened life by opening
The shell (1th or the sea.
nut hearing of n richer dime,
He took his only sun,
And cnnio nhere golden minds arc lost,
Whllo golden mines arc won.
They hoped to fill their pockets from
Itlch pockets In the ground ;
And 'midst tho boulders of tho hilts,
Nono bolder could bo found.
For though a minor, Tom
Was ncrcr known to shirk ;
And nlillo with seals ho worked his claim,
Ills father claimed the work.
Time's record on his brow now showed
A fair spotless pagat
Ami, as Ills age became Idm well,
Ho soon became of age.
Thinking that ho was up to all
Tho California tricks.
Ho now rciolvcd to pick his way
Without tho nld of picks.
In lots than eighteen circling moons
Two fortunes he had mido ;
Ono br good luck nt trado In stock,
And one by stock In trade.
With health and wealth ho non could lire,
unon uio cony piau :
While every hotly said, ofcourse,
Ho was a flno young man.
Hut Thomas fell, and sadly too.
Who of his friends would 'thought It! 1
lie ran lor omce, ana ami i
For him and his ho caught It.
Mixing to more with sober men,
He found his morals ileetltig;
And being of n jovial turn,
Ha turned a Jovial being
With Governor and Conslablo,
Ills cath bo freely spends ;
From Constable to Governor,
He had n host of friends.
Hut soon he found ho could not tako,
As lili old father would,
A Hula spirits, lust enough
To do bis spirits good.
In councils with the patriots
Upon aftulra of slate.
Selling no bars to drinking, ho
Soon lost his upright gait.
Ills braody straight way nudo him walk
In very crooked wayaj
While lager beer brought to bis view
A bier and span of grais.
The nips kept nipping at his purse
(1 wo blU for every dram,)
Whllo clear champagne produced in him
A pain that was no sbsni.
His cups of wlno wcro followed by
Tho doctor' painful cup;
Etch morning found Mm getting low
As ho was getting up.
Thus ui clessly, and feebly did
IIli short existence flit,
Till In n drunken fight h tell
Into a drunken lit.
The doctors came, but hero their skill
They found of no avail ;
They all agreed, what ailed poor Tom
Yus politics and ale.

The ItcpuMIcan Stalo Convention met nl
Salem on the 2d Inst., and elected T.S.Ken
dall, of I.lnn, President, And J II. Mcllrldo,
of .Yamhill, Secretary. Tho counties of
Clatsop, Tillamook, Clackamas, Yamhill,
Marlon, Polk, Linn, Lane, Jackson nnd
Umpqiia wcro represented by delegates.
The following resolutions wcro adopted :
1. lleiolvtit, That thd Republican party,
true to the principles that form tho Imsls of
our free and democratic system Of govern
ment, rcnfllrms to them Its unattcrablo de
votion as laid down In tho bloodbought
charter of American liberty, the Declara
tion of Independence, and dovclopcd in tho
Constitution or tho United States; and that
tho prosperity nnd perpetuity of our Union
depends upon a strict adherancc to the doc
trines taught, nnd rights guarantied In tticso
honored repositories of He publican faith.
2. JUtolettl, That In relation lo tho Insti
tution of domcstlo slavery, wc remain where
the patriots who formed our Institutions
planted themsehes, nnd where tho leading
statesmen of all parties, until within n re
cent period, have harmoniously stood that
Ills it purely local not general Stato, nnd
not National Institution determinable by
tho States, each for Itself: over which the
other States litivo no control, and for nhtcb,
3. llnolctil, That with Washington, Jef
ferson, Madtton, Franklin, nnd their com
peers and cotcmporarles, who, In tho fram
ing of the Constitution, mado cflcctunl pro
vision for tho annihilation of tho traffio In
slaves, and, who were especially anxious
that that Instrument should contain no nd
mtsslon of tho right of one man to hold
property In another, wo bellcvo slavery to
Im. a political, social and moral evil ; and
whllo wc disclaim all right and Inclination
to Interfere with It as n municipal regula
tion of any of tho sovereign States of tho
Union, wo beliovo that tho organic act of
1787, for the government of all tho territory
then belonging to the Republic, penned by
the rsgaclous Jeflcrson, and signed and ap
procd by the Immortal Washington, and
strictly adhered to In tho formation of every
Territorial government from that time down
to 1831, embodies tho duty of Congress In
framing governments for tho Territories
that Is, tho non-extension of slavery.
4. Ifciohttl, That the unfortunate depar
turo from that principle In the late act or
ganlilng tho Territory of Kansas, to which
wo directly trace tho bitter agitation which
has destroyed the peace and reddened with
the blood of brothers, tho virgin soil of that
fair land, has proved by Its bitter fruits the
wisdom of tbo ancient policy which It sup
6 Jltiohal, That we stand by and main
tain, as did our forefathers, truo popular
sovereignty, and tho Inalienable right of tho
people to govern themselves, but we deny
that a man Is deprived of them unless ho
enjoys the privllcgo of enslaving others, nnd
affirm that tho result of such a doctrine
would bo to found the liberty of the cltisen
upon a balls of despotism.
C. Raotvtd, That tho uttempt upon tho
part of the present dcmocratlo adinlnlttH
tlon to force upon tho peoplo cf Kansas a
constitution abhorrent to n largo majority
of Its citizens, and to sustain In power a
usurping and tyrannical minority against
the known will of tho remainder, Is an out
rago not to bo borno. by a frco peoplo ; nnd
wo hope that, planting themselves firmly
upon the Immortal truth first enunciated by
the Declaration ot Independence, "that all
governments derive their Just powers from
the free consent of tbo governed," they will
baablo to wrest from tbo oppressors that
which Is luestlmablo to a free people, and
formidable to tyrants only tho right to
compel the rulers to conform to tho withes
of tho ruled,
7. tttialvtd, That wo Insist that tho right
of tbo nation to govern, necessarily follows
tho right to acquire and hold territory ; and
that In providing a government for a Terri
tory under this" right, It should bo based
upon tho inalienable rights of tho people j
and we arraign tbo modern system, as prac
tically carried out in Kansas, for its utter
and gross violation of theio principles, and
ufllrm that tbodarkcataloguoof wrongs nnd
crimes committed by tho late and existing
administrations, against popular rights in
that Territory, deserve thofucecratlon of
every lover of freedom of tbo present day j
and as their just reward in history, an im
mortality of infamy.
8. Itttolvtd, That Uie partisan decision of
tho Supreme Court, In tho case of Dred
Scott, which makes tho Constitution a grand
titlo instrument to every holder of slaves, Is
a disgrace to the Judiciary of the nation, and
a stain upon the character of tho country,
whoso proudest boast Is Its love of liberty in
Us largest seflie, and lu hatred o( tyranny
in every farm.
0. Jletohd, That wo congratulate our
selves and tUo pseploof Oregon upon the
result of the late election npon tbo question
of slavery, triumph of the Republican doo
trine of non-extensloq, aud we only insist
that.we ought to tiso our Influence wherever
It, can bo legitimately don'e,'to secure to
other Tcrrltorle tbo samo priceless bliss-
lings of frctdoui which, by such a gratifying
majority, we seem so fully to appreciate for
10. JUiotecit, That the reckless prodigal
ity of national trcasuro which has charac
terised the lato nnd present democratic ad
ministrations, bringing to bankruptcy n
treasury whose vaults have received SSt),
000,000 per annum, nnd necessitating a loan
in a time of pcaeo, Is a clear nnd dcmoiutra.
tlvo proof of (hat .wasteful cxtravaganco
which has plundered tho nation, and turned
Its treasury Into a shlnplastcr machine, with
nothing but Its credit to sustain its finances.
11. Jlttohtd, That tho l'nclflo Railroad
Is no longer an enterprise of doubtful expe
diency, but has become ono of imperative
commercial nnd national necessity j nnd wo
favor Its construction upon any central, and
practicable routo, by tho nld or the general
government, given In such manner as may
bo best calculated to effect Its early com
pletion. 12. lUtotttd, That the political dogmas
sought recently to be established by a party
styling thcmsolvcs democrats, In this Ter
ritory, which nwcrts the duty of n represen
tative or delegate in some Instances to be to
obey tho Instructions of his constituents,
whllo In others specified, ha Is bound to dis
regard them nnd bow to the will of others,
Is dangerous nnd nnli-rcpublican In Its ten
dency, and worthy to be sustained only by
n party that Is everywhere known ns tho
ally of personal vassalage, and tho Advo
cate of partisan despotism.
J 3. lltiohtd, That wo believe In tho tin
tramcTed right of the citizen to think nnd
vote as ho pleases, and wo utterly deny the
right of any representative, under any cir
cumstances, to violate tho Instructions or
known will of tho peoplo ho represents.
1 1, Itriplved, That tho present system of
voting viva voce, Introduced by that party
to subject the sulfrago of tho citizens to the
surveillance of partisau Inspectors, and awe
him, under the penalty of being branded as
a traitor, Into abject submission, Is n relict
of barbarism, which finds (It friends Jn n
party whoso whole organization Is dovoted
to the extinguishment or every spark of per
sonal freedom, and the subjeotion of Its
members to the entlro control of an aristo
cracy of leaders and that with such n par
ty wo are proud to uavo neither sympathy
Iteforo the Invasion of Julius Cintar, the
natives of England had tin plates, iron
plates, and rings, which wcro money . Ou
the authority of Boncca, a curious account
is given when leather, appropriately stamp
ed to glvo It a certain legal character, was
tbo only current money. At a comparative
ly recent uate in me annais oi i.urope, ire
dlch the Kcond, who died In 1230, nt the
siege of Milan, actually paid his troops with
leather money. Nearly tho same circum
stance occurred In England during the great
wars of the lurous. Jn the course of 1230,
King John, for the ransom of his royal per
son, promised lo pay Ednard the third of
England, thrco millions of gold crowns. In
order to fulfil the obligation, he was reduced
lo (ho mortifying necessity of paying the
expenses of tho palace In leather money, In
the centre of each piece there being a llttlo
bright point of silver. In that reign is found
the origin of the travestied honor of boy
hood, called conferring A leather medal.
The Imposing ceremonies accompanying
presentation gavo full force, dignity and
valuo to a leather jewel, which noblemen
wcro probably proud and gratified to receive
at the hand of majesty.
So late as 1374, (hero was an Immense Is
tuo of money In Holland, stamped on small
sheets of pasteboard. Out further back In
the vista of years, Nutna Pompllus, the sec
ond kin? of Home, who retimed tlsT hundred
I ,7 " , " ., , , .,
nnu iwruiy-iwo years uciuro iuc uurisuun
era, made money out of wood as wcllni
leather; a knowledge of which might have
Influenced King John In the bold project of
substituting. tho tanned bide of an animal
for gold and silver, well knpwn to his sub
jects to be exceedingly precious.
Doth gold nnd sliver appeared to have
been In extensive circulation In Egypt, soon
after their potency was understood In Asia.
From thence they were Introduced into
Carthago and Greece; and, Anally travel
ing further and further in a westerly direc
tion, the city of Rome discovered tbo Impor
tance of legalising her circulation.
Weight always having been of tbo first
Importance in early times, the ebapo of mo
ney appears to have been regarded with
perfect Indtfferenco for series of years.
When tbo bits and portions of metal re
ceived as precious were extensively circula
ted, It is quite probable that each possessor
shaped them to suit bis onn conception, as
practiced to toine cxteut nt this time In re
mote places fu the East Indies. The payer
always cuts off parts wjtb shears, till he ob
tains, by exact weight tbo stipulated am
ount. It was thus Unit men (raveled with
the evideuco of tholr possession in a sack.
But great Inconvenience must bavo resulted
from this often tedious prpcwsa: nnd as na
tions advance in civilization aud thoecon
omle arts, a certain ark or Impression on
certain shed pieces was acknowledged lobe
the sign of a certain weight.

A PntHtit Sermon.
nr now, jk.
At the request of Ilrothcr Saokvltlo, of
Forest City, my dlrcourto for this morning
will be drawn from the following, by Martin
F. Tuppcr, Esq. :
Seek n good wife of thy God, for she is the
best girt omis providence.
MrllnlnKiuK No rational man ever yet
had oven a soft-shell doubt crawl Into his
mind that n good wife Is a gcod thing ar
tlclcrutcnsll or "Institution."
This being conceded, wo arrlvo at if start
lag point. Cur text rays, my nnwedded ho
brothron, you must seek a good wife the
best gift of God's provldcnco of tho grrnt
Disposer of human events and marrlsgcablo
women. That's so. l)y looking to such n
source, you are sure to get ono of the right
stamp, containing the puro metallic ring
not one composed of counterfeit virtues, or
made up of r.lno and pew tor pretensions.
And, what is more, It Is Isn't going to cost
you anything, neither at tho beginning nor
At the end, except a new suit of rlothce, n
plain gold ring, nnd a ten-dollar piece for
tho parson which Is my standard price, and
"I'll have no more and never tako n cent
Tho Devil, ray beloved bacholors, always
has a great deal of femlnlno truck In the
market for which you have to pay pretty
roundly or lot nlono. Generally speaking,
to got ono of his sort, you must show a pic
thorlo purso In tho beginning, and glvo It n
good sweat nt the start and this, brethren,
Is tho literal meaning of that Greek quota
tlon, "tho devil's to pay." Afterwards,
your purse will probably sweat Itself Into a
galloping consumption, and dissolve nnd
disappear, "llko the baseless fabric of a yl
tlon" or a pound of salts In a quart of warm
water. Then A dark cloud will lower upon
your shanty ; love, If It ever gained a resi
dence In your hearts, will suddenly emi
grate from such an arctic region want nnd
wretchedness will stare you In tho counte
nance, like a couple, of cat-owls watching
a gopher by moonlight and, unless relieved
by divorce, tho Devil gets a pair of you In
My friends: every man, be ho good or bad,
should have n good wife. If Lo bo good, sho
will mako him n still better member of soci
ety ; If bad,but not wholly beyond redemp
tion, a good mi will put a uew surface up
on him In six weeks:: nnd, At the end of a
single year, he will baro undergone such a
thorough renovation tint 'ho won't know
himself from the Seventh Commandment.
If thou art given to fretting, and don't
know what to frot about, It Is well to pro
vido thyself with a home, and furnish It with
ngaodwifo aud n few little white-headed
tt-cetcrat, then, verily, thou canst fret to
thy soul's content, and the good wife will
probably heed It not, but let It run itself
out as It most assuredly will, In lime.
Thou thalt fret,
1st. Uecauso tho fashions changu with
every moon, and It takes too much change
to keep wife rigged according to Gunter.
2d, llecause a red flannel petticoat, even
to think about, Is worse than tho seven-year
8d. Rccauso the hoops to the vinegar bar
rel are always (lying off, and wife wants
coopering every once in two months.
-tth. Uecauso the coffee Is too delicate and
butter too robust ; eggs Interesting geologi
cal specimens ; meat not cooked half cook
ed cooked to n cinder; potatoes soggy;
turnips pithy; pie-crust hammered out at
the blacksmith's, and the "shortening"
omitted on account of its extreme length.
0th, Uecuuie tho childreu'a faces are eo
dirty they'll never be able to speak Eng
lish. litb. Rccauso there Is nothing In Its place,
but tho cat In tho mllk.pltcher and (he even
ing newspaper iu tho slop-pall.
llut, as beforo-sald, thy fretting will run
Itself out in time, If not meddled with ; and
thou shall afterwards become worthy of the
good wife, who has not only borne it all
without a murmur, like a duck In a hall
storm ; but, with a thousand apologies, gar
nished with the sweetest of smiles, promised
an extra endeavor "to suit you for the fu
ture. Worthy bachelors : seek a good wife of
your God, and you will find it an easy mat
ter to scare up one. What I mean by a
good wife U, one plump as a partridge,
about two thirds full of common sense, and
the other third filled with trimmings for the
sauio; one moderately addicted to crinoline,
flounces and tight-lacing whose heart is a
magnet that shall draw you to her side, and
induce you to spend the major part of your
evening in her sweet society; one whose in
herent charms aro such as, In all your wan
derings, will cer lead you to eielnlm:
"Therp'8 no place like botue r'n-ono ybo
will keep buttons upou your sbrts and put
a polsh on your manners jp-ae who can
make a good pot-pie, as wBPla ro"
tho piano, nnd nbovo all, one who knows
how to prepare nice stuffing for a turkey on
Christmas. I "holler" on that, llut beware,
friends, bewnro of your strong-minded,
double-jointed sort, nnd blue stocklugs In
Ilachelor miners; I don't know that you
nre so wretchedly in want or a w Ifo as a good
many others ; but you know your own t ant
tho best. If you are aweary, nnd fcl life
to bo n sort of one-horso arrangement with
out a help-mate, why, then look about for
your t'other half, nnd splice on. Thonjgb
sho dig not hcrsclC. verily, In all likelihood,
she will make you dig the shaipcr. Ilut be
yo not in n hurry. Tho gaudy red petticoat,
I predict, wilt soon give place to an article
of sober blue. Then, 0, ye brethren mlncjrs I
you may take unto yourselves wives, and
blissfully share with them your happlnesv,
your bed, your board, your sheets, and your
Ilut those wretched, greedy Mormons I up
on tho subject of wife-taking they carry
their goatish Ideas lo A movt prodigal ex
tent. They want ol together too much of n
good thing more than reason, religion or
tho laws of tbo land ought to allow ; but
let us hope that, through the grace of Ood
and gun-powder, a now order of things will
soon be Instituted In (bo midst of this miter
Ably benighted peoplo.
My brotbfen : you shemld never merry
very young. Life Is a feast ; after you havo
enjoyed tho eubstanttals, let a wife com In
as tho dessert. So moto It bo t
Punch's Clinrco to tho Jury.
Gtntltmen oftht Jury! You nro sworn
In all cases to decide according to. the evi
dence ; at the samo time, If you bavo any
doubt, you nre bound to give tho prisoner
tho benefit of It, Supposo you have to pro
nounce on the pullt or lunocenco of a gen
tleman accused of felony. You wilt natur
ally doubt whether any .gentleman would
commit such offences accordingly, however
strong may be tho testimony against him,
you will, perhaps, ncqult him. The evi
dence of your senses Is, at least, or credible
as that of the witnesses ; If, therefore, your
eyesight convince you that tho prisoner Is n
well-dressed person, you havo a right to
presume his respectability ; and itlsfor.you
to say whother a respectable person would
lie likely to bo guilty of the crimes Imputed
to him. In Itke manner, when you see a
shabby-looking follow In the dock, charged,
for example, with sliccp-stcaling, the deci
sion rests wjtb you, first, whether or ujt
that Individual Is a ragamuffin, and second
ly, how far It Is probable that a man of that
description would steal sheep. Of course,
as has been beforo said, you will always bo
guided by tho svldeuce ; but then, whether
the evidence Is trustworthy or not, Is a mat.
ter for jour private consideration. You
may bellevo if you choose, or you may UIs
believe ltf and whether, gentlemen of tho
Jury, you will bellevo It or dlebcllcvo it,
will depend on tho constitution of your
minds. If your minds are eo constituted
that you wish to find the prisoner guilty,
perhaps you will believe It; If (hey happen
(o be so constituted that yon desire to find.
him not guilty, why then, very llkoly.you
wll) disbelieve It, You aro to frco your
minds from all passion and prejudice If you
can, And in (hat case your judgment will be
unbiased ; but If you cannot, you will re
turn a verdict accordingly. It is not, strict
ly speaking, for you to consider what will
bo the effect of your vcrdlot ; but if such a
consideration should occur to you, and you
cannot help attending to it, that verdict will
be Influenced by It to a certain extent. You
are probably aware (bat when yon retire,
you will be looked op until you contrive to
ngrcc. You may arrive nt unanimity by
fair discussion, or by somo of you starving
out the others, or by tossing up; nnd your
cquclusion by whichever of these processes
Arrived at, wilUe more or less in accord
ance with your oaths. Your verdiet may
be right; it is to be hoped It will bo; It may
be wrong ; it is to be hoped it will not be.
At all events, gentlemen of the jury, you
will come to some conclusion or other; un
lose It should so happen that you separate
without coming to any.
