CHANGE IN TIIK MILITARY
DISTRICT OF OREGON.
We undentand tint the limits of ths Bis
trlct of Oregon hnve been so extended ns
to include the wbolo State. Heretofore Ilic
bound ry bctn-ecn tlio two Districts Oregon
nd California has liccn tlio Cnlapooln
Monntslni, Whether this chango will not
work an Injury to Southern Oregon and
Kortbern California, whoie Interests In these
premise nro mutual, rcnnlus to be teen.
Much will depend In this rcipcct upon the
election of the officer to command tlio Dig'
trltt of Oregon. The natural outlet for the
country thui cut off from the District of
California, Ii toward) San Fraiictico; In that
alio, are nil Iti channel of business.
From all point In tho southern tier rf
the countlei of Oregon, Including F't Klam
ath and the country beyond to tho Oivjhee
mines, the Head Quarter of tho District of
California Sacramento and Department
Head Quarters, at Sin Franclico, are much
easier of access Iban Fort Vancouver, lie

now likely to enter Into the conduct or Mill,
tary matters for the region uf country
inus assigned, oa It ?iug already exempli
fied by our cotemporary nt tho Dalle.
These Innuencei lave heretofore been barm
less, because they were fully understood by
the officer whom they were deilgucd to
Influence. This afc-gnard Is now re-moved,
and wo arc Included in the District of Ore
gon, where tho prcpouderasce of the wealth
and political power or tho Slate Is gre.uly
against us, and wo confew that we view the
change with serious misgivings at tq Its fi
nal remit. Our old commander has exer
cised au Infinitely greater amount or care
for tho welfare of this frontier, than was
ever bestowed upon It by all or his prcdo
ceiorf, and we-hopo that tho plans which
have been Inaugurated and partially oxecu
ted under his direction, rcspectlug It, may
be carried Into tho fullest effect.
8Ince writing tho above, we wcro pleased
to learn that Col. 1. F. Ututy bos been ap
pointed to the command or tho District or
Oregon. Tbls.no believe, will removciU

we are coaOdeut that tho people or this por

Just share of publlobenellts, under the ad

This same John I'. Miller was one of

ADDRESS OF HON. JESSI2
ED MARCH 4TII 18G5.
Fellow Citizyu.l would encourage tho
young men nf Orrgon, able to bear arms,
to enlist on the score of Interest.
There nre many good young men nmong
us who depend upon the bonet labor of
their linnds for n support.. The pay, boun
ties, comfortable clothing, free medical at
tendance by the best of surgeons In sickness,
their wnges going on whether sick or well,
nnd in cnc they shall In nny way bo dis
abled while In service, the certainty of be
ing supported nnd enred for the rest of their
lives by Uncle Sum, tho most generous nnd
best of kinsmen, offer to Mich high prom
ise of gain in the service ol so generous nn
The bounty, Slate nnd Federal, added
to the pay of a prlvntc soldier for three
yenrs nmnunts to the sum of l.Olli dollars,
or 3-12 dollars per annum. It h true, ex
cept l.r0 dollars, ft lie Stntc bnuntv, which
is gold or its rqiilvnlfiit,) this sum will be
paid in greenbacks j but us no more ol
these will be Issued, It Is more than proba
ble they nlso may be ns good m gold by
tlicml of three ymrs, 119 those now In cir
culation nre being rnptdly tnkcii up by the
sole of bonds uud the collection of taxes.
And ns food und clothing, which draws no
largely upon the wnges of tbo laborer, is
furnished free to the soldier, lie' may nt the
end or bis ten have nioru tbuu 0110 thou
sand dollars. More, I venture tn say, than
many laborers or even nifchuulra will bo
able tn save from their wages in the next
three yiurs. Besides this, Uncle Sum on
ly nsks of his soldiers to fight his buttles,
not lo labor exeept when It Is iiccviMr?
for the soldier's comfort, safety or ruccess.
For other work, nnd be generally has pleii.
ty to do, ho pays eillz-iu to do it, or if 11
soldier wnhei to work he is excused for the
time from mllltury duty, nnd bis wnges ure
iloublid. Activo cumpatgns on this const
c:in be made only In rummer, to that' foi
hnlf the year the soldier is in winter quar
ters. Uncle Sam llliea to indulgo bis
faithful nephews. He llkci to muko tlicm
happy. When lie can spurn them bo nl
lows them to go home to fco their friends,
their pircnts, brothers, sisters, their wives
nnd children if they havo them J but to
most of you the dcurcst privilege of
nil to spend the holidays with the girl
you love best.
Some pnrcnts objct to their young nn
going Into tho uriny.brcunse they fear they
will bo under bad influences, contract bad
liuhiu nud bad morals. There was weight
in tills objection us applied to the nrmy be
fore the wur, 2o patriotic motive nt
thut limn stimulated enlistments, the pay
whs only half what it now is, the bounty
merely u lew dollars to bind tho recruit,
the whole not amounting to more than one
third the wages ol a common lubnrcr.
Where neither patriotism, glory or tin
adequate uwurd induced enlistments, it whs
natural tn siect the "tlnv nf peace" sol
dier tn bo n degraded character, who, cith
er from mint of diameter, industry, or so
briety, shed out a degradtd cxlsttuico in
Uncle Sam's liicry. With such I udmit
no innocent youth should be brought in
But now If is different so different In
deed that so far as young men nro conrernwl.
the nrmy and civil life have ebunged char
acter in regard to morality. Unfortunate
ly tlio nppllunces fur the formation nnd in
diligence of vicious habits nre everywhere
present, more accessible tn the citizen than
to tbe soldier. The natural sympathy of
the vicious for the vicious, and tho affinity
ofcrimo of nil names, krep tho gumbol
era, thieves nnd profligates nt home with
tlio traitors, so that It will be here ns in
the East, the best nnd bravest youtli of
the country will bo found in the nrmy,
whllo trnllors, cowards, and vaga
bonds will bo found in their
usual haunts. It is also objected by par
ents to the enlistment of their young sons
that it will Intorfero with their education.
This also Is a mistake. A youtli of six
teen or over, able to enter the runks of the
army, has arrived at the oge when tbe
"stuffing" process of education cannot be
used upon him. He has by that age
showed a preference or adaptation to the
part lu life be is best calculated to
(ill, nnd whatever that be, be must pursue
it himself, and with his own free will, if he
wins success. He is never likely to be
come successful in n pursuit forced upou
him contrary to his inclinations. But if be
inclines to devote his leisure to study, or
tbe acquisition, or au art, or bundcraft, be
Is sure to find In our army as now consti
tuted, able tutors in every art and science,
and in every branch of iudustry, As an
Illustration of this, allow me to tell you of
a boy whose father fell in one of the early
skirmishes of tho Revolution. Jlis moth
er's poverty compelled her to bind him ap
prentice lo a trade be did not like. He
fled from his indentures and joined tbe
army of Washington at the oge of twelve,
too small to carry a musket. One of those
rudo instruments of music was placed in
his bands whose shrill piercing notes stirs
tho heart of tbe old soldier as the sound of
the bugle Btirs tbe war-horse. Dare-foot
and half naked be paastd tbe terrible win
ter at Valley Forge. He was at Brandy
wine. Moamouth,l'rInetOB,Treuton nod tbe
crowning victory at Yorktown. He pass
ed throngli all these dancers unhurt except
by a single thrust of a British bayonet at
Monmoutlu He bad no educatloowhen he
entered the army, no tutor but his noble
ncarieei Captain, no means to purchase
unnht nr !nstrum:iits, for it took u whole
year of bis pay t0 UUJ n tw0-,'t knk; yet
from such n poor beginning, nml under rir.
cumstnnces so adverse, thut boy, when 1
knew blm, hod explored the wide fields of
literature, bad gone with Chemistry and
CJcology deep Into the mysteries of nature,
nnd mounted with science among tbe stars.
I nlso urge enlistment upon you on the
score of patriotism, for Its full stirs the
heart of tbo rich, as well m tbo heart of
the poor. Is to blm who lives by tlio la
bor of his brain, ni to him who labors
with hi' hands. By nil laws divino nnd
human, ucxt to God we own duly to our
country. This duty Is psrticulnrly bind
ing on the people of the United Slates.
Acknowledging the sway of a single Gov
ernment, Its territories nre the most exten
sive in the world. It embraces within its
limits every clime, every soil, and almost
every production mineral nud vegetable
known to innn. Its Government nlTonls
the people tho largest liberty, lor it Is gov
erned by the peoplo themselves. It impov
rs no Bhacklcs upon conscience, lor every
one follows the religion ol his choice.
The laws nro the most just nnd equal, Its
protection of life nud property, most com
plete nnd perfect. It acknowledges 110
IMvlnp right of king, priest or potentate;
no nristocracy, but that of merit; no tem
poral superior but Its written laws, which
every citizen has his voice In mnking ; nor
the right ol any one to ndm!n!lcr them
but thoo chnen by the people themselves.
' God has smiled upon this broad Inml,
nud showered upon It his choicest gifts,
that it may furntsii food and raiment for
countless millions, lie has blessed its be
nign Institutions that cnunthss millions may
live under them in Impplncs und pence.
A foe, instigated by the "Powrn of
Darkness," Ims attacked this government;
Is nttcmpllng In wrest from it itstcrritoiies,
to rupture the bonds of Union upon which
It is founded, to proMrnto it with its glo
tious Institutions in ruins.
The Government fuutidi'd by yonr fath
ers to bo nn entail to their posterity for
ever, la now In your keeping. You nre
bound by the highest and the holiest obllgu
tint. to transmit It to your cblldreir, with
none of lis loud marks removed, with nunc
of its Institutions ikotioycd.
It now calls upon you lodrnw thcswtfrd
for Its protection nnd defense. It muttirs
not who the foe is you ore to nuct, or
where you nre to meet him; it Is enough
that be is an enemy of jour country, nnd
your country colls upon you tn strike him
down. Should we not cheerfully rrspond
In obedience een if it leud to certain
death? Death must be met somewhere
nud nt some time. Where can it be met
with lei's pain nnd mure glory tbun on tbe
field, battling for the cause of right? or
ut what ilme can we hotter yield lire, tbuu
when our country demands Ihe sacrifice?
But if it be the will of God, dieare or
death may find the shirking coward or
base traitor in his hilling place end strike
hint ms certainly us the brave soldier who
confronts the enemy in the field, and sbilc
tho former sinks Into uu unknown gruvr
'"unwipt, tiiibnnorid und unsung," the
inline of the latter will lio in story nud
song, nud lie written on the tablets of his
country's glory forever.
But should tho brave soldier survive,
und win bis laurels unlurnMiul, ho will ev
er be cheered with the knowledge that he
has saved bis country in the tiny olits need;
will be honored by his fellow citizens,
smiled on by beauty, nud his bonorubledls
cbargi will be a passport to civic honors
und offices hereafter, If bo fek them, and n
richer It-gucy to bis children tbuu u patent
lu Ihe noble rivalry for honor, tbo high
est prlzo will bo awarded to lilm who
makes tho greatest sucrlficc. Between
those who make cqml snerifines the meed
of honor Is due to liim who serves iu tbe
rnuks over lilm who holds n commission,
and if a young man does not mean to make
nrms a profession hcreuftcr, I would advise
him to enlist as a privute soldier, rather
than seek tbo Ices honorable but more re
sponsible position of a subaltern.
War Is terrible, but it is not on unmix
ed evil. Though tho means in the bands
of the Deity to punish nations for their
sins, like strong medicine, it also renovates
uud improves, and ns the thunder storm
purifies tho air and purges it of uoxtous
vapors engendered by a long calm, so does
war arouso men from the lethergy of ener
vating peace; it stirs their energies, it pu
rifies their hearts, and draws them away
from the corrupting pursuits of nieasure or
ol lucre; it stimulates o noble deeds, to
heroism, to self-devotion.
A wxr like ours of principle Infuses
principle, and like the atmosphere purified
by the storm, men, for generations after
such a struggle, act In all things from high
er and better motives, than when their
hearts are encrusted in the selfishness, and
their minds absorbed with the jealousies
and petty rivalries', resulting from the pur.
suits of peace.
As before I concludo I wish to give ex
pression to somo of my own opinions in re
gard to the cause nnd result of tbe war we
ore now waging, and bow and where they
wero obtained, I can best do so by ugaio
referring to the old soldier, a sketch of
whose early history I have olrcady given
youtnnd as my examinations of history,
and slight acquaintance with the phlloso
pby of ROtcrnssent "goeth not to Jki con
trary," I still retain those early ImjBslons
received from his lips. Besides (he know!-
eoge ue scista in tbe presence of ''prim.
visaged war," be also acquired principles.

To the Puritans, though in n few in
stances themslves persecutors, the people
qf Europe owe nil Ihe liberty ihoy enjoy
of coii'ciinco or subjects. They lisve tv
crywliere resisted kingcraft nnd priest
craft as the opprevora end cnslavi-rs ol the
people. It was to tlicsc people who could
"found n church without n Bishop, and
rule a Stole without a King," that the
United Stairs owes Its freedom of con
science nnd Republican Government. The
Puritan idra, that "nil men nro by nature
free nnd tqtuii," found its way into our De
claration of Independence. To the 'slave
holding chivalry of the South It was n
"glittering generality," having no practical
application or iffecl; bntlo liberty-loving
Massachusetts it was a living truth, n su
preme law, nnd tho Misckvls or slavery fell
nt its touch. It was no new truth to
these sons of the Puritans their nncestors
had declared It as the basis of their Insti
tutions nearly two centuries bifote. It
was the great tinth for declurlng which
their ancestors hud sufDrcd persecution nnd
martyrdom for nges before. A tiulb not
even then new, for it wn tmylit by Christ
nnd his Apostles. Xor, fellow citizens, is
thlswaranrw one it is old as society
Itself. It is that "IrreprrsMble ccnllict"
that has ever t.xtsted between labor nnd
privilege tbe oppressed uud the oppress
or. It is n war rff ideas not nf races. The
one contends that labor should bo free, the
other that rnpllul should own It. Tbe one
declares the right to govern belongs to the
majority or ninny, tho other (hat the art to
govern is n gift bestowed on a few. The
one claims the right of every man to wor
ship God according to the dictates of his
own conscience, the other dsnlcs that he
can worship except tn the manner j re
scribed by a Priist. Tbe highest lyp.) of
tho one is, a government the laws of which
pioteelall uad vpfieit vone.a Church in
which men urc equals and God alone su
perior; of the other, a government where
a despot rules by Divine right, n persreu-
ting church established by law, filled with
unscrlpturnl dignitaries, bt-uded by a man
claiming Divine ntlributcs.
Wc now fiijhl for a guut principle the
greatest for whirls man ever drew sword.
We wage no selfih war, but one the bene
fits of which we would gladly see extended
to the whole human race. Onr victory
will even be Infiulte gain to those vvhocoii
tiud ogalnst us. The submission weusk
of thtm Is only to the laws wc obey our
selves. To receive the same blessings our
selves enjoy under them. We fight not to
enslave but to make free; not to opprrss
but to free from oppression, nnd we ok
them as our equals to enjoy, to the full, nil
these blessings ns we enjoy them.
In conclusion, lit me express the hope
that tl.o time is not distant when the North
and the South shall again sit under the
protecting folds of the fan e cloriouj ban
ner in pcaco and unity, ns of yore; that
the bitter fa-lings engendered by this war
shall bo forgotten, that we shall, as one
people and one nation, purrue our high
destiny, "conquering and to conquer," un
til civil nnd religions liberty shall be tbe
law of the whole family of mankind, and
tho homage man now pays to man shall
be paid to God ouly, and He alone the ob
ject of adoration.
