The Noktiirf.x Pacific The St.
Paul Pioneer favors the extension of
certain roads in the Western States,
and a consolidation of interests with
the Northren Pacific. It is now ad

it is one of the very strongest in

Horse Protkctor. A Califoruian
has invented a cloth pad, on which
is placed a cup for hclding water,
the whole to rest between the ears
of a horse so that a little water
passes out at a time, keeping the
head ngist. Anything which allevi
ates the sufferings of this noble
animal should meet with approba
tion. Nothin'g New. The New York

Our distinguished Senator, Geo.
II. Williams, delivered aa eloquent
and interesting speech before the
people of Oregon City and vicinity
assembled in the Court House, on
Friday the IGth inst. Of the subject
matter of his speech, occupying three
hours, and embracing in epitome all
that has been done or attempted, by
onr National Congress, on the sub
ject of " Reconstruction," we can
but barely speak.
Opening in happy Corwinian style,
by a reference to the Reconstruction
subject, the Judge said he proposed
to tell the people of Oregon a small
part ol "all which he had seen, and
a part of which he was,'' in the per
formance of his duty, as Senator of
the United States during the past two
years and a half, at Washington.
Taking up his topic, from the time
when the armed power of the Con
federacy was broken, and the cohorts
of treason and rebellion were scatter
ed before the stearn valor of Union
armies, the speaker adopted in suc
cession all the leading measures
adopted by Congress, the logic of
which is too familiar to our many
readers to need recapitulation here,
if our time would allow. An apt
com prison was drawn between what
our country now is, and what it would 1
have been, if Democratic counsels
had prevailed at any time from the
days of Granny Buchanan, down to

Judge Williams is one of those
men of whom we have good right to
be proud. The loyal Union men
who sent him to the Senate of the
United States, are freely satisfied
with every word he bas spoken, with
every vote he has cast. And now in
canvassins for possible and probable
names for President and Vice Presi-
dent of ihe United States, the name
of our Senator is often heard; and if
any man is taken from the PaciGc
slope, Williams is the man.
We have ouly one complaint to
make of onr Senator he has denied
us the American luxury of $ru?nb-

thing we have any fear to criticise, if

The recovery which is now going
forward in England from the mone
tary depression which culmiuated in
the great financial panic of last year
is a gratifying symptom of a revival
of confidence in that country, says the
N. Y. Herald of the 13th. Had it
not been for the mistaken views of
the leaders of British political opinion
with respecct to the duration and final
issue of the war in the United States, j
the causes which operated to produce
that panic would r.ot have existed;
for the previous inflation of which it
was the consequence would not have
been experienced. The stoppage of
the cotton supply from the Southern
States threw a large amount of capi
tal out of employment, and new chau
uels of usefulness had to b formed
to absorb it. There were not want-
ing, of course, speculators to organize j
new enterprises ana promote m.an ;
c'ul schemes, and to these the British
public lent a ready and willing ear.
Cotton rose rapid iy in price, and it
was confidently predicted that Amer
ica would never resume her former
place in the cotton markets of the
world. Hence attention was turned
to Egypt, to India and flsewhere, as
cotton fields designed to supply the
looms oi Manchester, and cotton
growing companies rose like mush-
rooms within a radius of half a mile
of the London Slock Exth mg- All

and prices rose higher from month to I
month on the Stock Jxehange and in
the cotton market, till the war iu the
United States Buddenly termiated, and
a new prospect unfolded itself. A
panic in cotton following a previous
decline of magnitude, involved the
loss of many millions sterling in Eng-
land alone, and its effects extended j
to India and the other cotton rov
ing countries, where immense havoc
was committed. The financial do
pression through which England
passed, however, more than discount-
Jed the results of peace in the United
States, and hence a new period of
speculation has set in, which is likely
to culminate in another great itiflit-
tion, although not as great as the
former one. This time it will par

al prosperity, instead of bubble com
