Wc have received from the pub
lishers the September number of the
Ladies ll'posilory, edited for the
Methodist Episcopal Church, by Rev.
J. W. Wiley, D. D. The initial ar
ticle for this number is an interesting
sketch of the Hon. Schuyler Colfax,
Speaker of the House of Representa
tives, and is accompanied by a very
good engraved portrait. The sketch
is written by the Rev. Arthur Ed-
wards, of the Northwestern Christian
Advocate, and is an earnest and appre
ciative tribute to the noble dualities of
the lion. Speaker. It Appears upon
this authority that Mr. Colfax's
grandfather was Captain Colfax, of
General Washington's body guard,
and his grandmother was a Schuyler,
cousin to Major General Philip
Schuyler, of revolutionary fame. He
was born in the city of New York on
the 23d of March, 1323, and is there
fore forty-four years of age. He was
a posthumous child, his father having
died a few months before he was born.
When he was ten years old his
mother married Mr. Matthews, and
the future Speaker's short school
life closed. The next three years he
stood in his stepfather's store. In
1836 the family emigrated to Indiana,
and " for thirty-one years has pure
Western home life smiled upon and
fostered hita whose only possible
complaint is the expatriating majori
ties which banish him so repeatedly
East again to Washington."
There arc interesting features of
his subsequent life recorded, which
spaco compels us to omit; but wc
cannot refrain from paying our trib
ute of hearty endorsement to the fol
lowing statement of the facts and mo
tives of his public career :
Mr. Colfax's first more public service
began in ISIS, as member and secretary
of the Whig convention which nominated
General Taylor for President. In 1S.VJ lie
was an active member of the convention
which framed the present constitution of
Indiana. Here he persistently opposed
the unmanly clause prohibiting free col
ored men from entering the State. This
clause, submitted separately to the peo
ple, was endorsed by majorities of eight
thousand in his district, and ninety thou
sand in the State, yet, where a men; polit
ical trimmer would have waived the per
sonal issue, he, like a man, openly voted
with the minoriiy, though, he was, at the
time a candidate ler Congress. In 1-,1.
munumotisiy ll0U.;iluiC!: iroill tiie Viil U1S
triet of Indiana, he made a joint canvass
with his opponent, the then incumbent.
who re-obtained his seat by only two hun
dred and sixteen majority. Like his friend
Mr. Lincoln, from the Douglas debate he
emerged in a shining, prophetic minority,
with a fund of popular confidence which
later resulted in better tilings. Subse
quent district and Coggreisional popu
larity is shown by eight unanimous nomi
nations and seven continuous elections, in
a "doubtful district," to the House, which
has thrice, by more than the party ma
jority, elevated him to the Speakership.
-o oth-r Northern man has such a lrmti-
fying record. His membership has been
in the Thirty-fourth and all later Con
gresses, and his Speakership in the Thirty
eighth, Thirty-ninth and Fortieth.

who have the word freedom pat on
the lips. They may be ; but treason

published more than two years ao
we have just got a glimpse of. It is

Mration on the Eve of the Rebellion."
The JJre who tempted Mr. Buchanan
to eat of IjTe sour apple- of treason,

text we are reminded of an anecdote
reported of Dr. yjmuel Johnson : A

U ul.en he said, All
ly pronounced. At the close of the
first session of the Thirty-ninth Congress,
an enthusiastic opposition member, mount
ing a desk, shouted: "Three cheers for
our noble Speaker!" and the responsive
-shower and thunder" came with a will.
In UCO he defeated his competitor, who
in Ie'G2 took the stamp in hit favor. His
present Speakership was endorsed by the
unexpected votes of three members elected
to Congress on opposition ticket?. This
favor by his opponents is won by his open,
manly tactics during a canvass where all
his procedures are above even the re
proach of enemies. In debate, he, always
avoiding personalities, confines himself to
vital issues and the jucrit.j of all pending
Prosperity has not injured Mr. Colfax,
for the simple reason that pure principles
and worthy aims constitute the soul of his
success. Before us is a letter read to the
convention which last nominated him.
Urging the unselfish point th it the Union
cause was of paramount importance, he
expresses unwillingness that his name
should " em harass the Convention for an
instant, if even a small minority prefer
some other standard-bearer.'7 Aspirants
usually say thus when they are certain of
success or defeat, but Mr. Co! fax is not
among those a.-mirants fo no:ii;,.n ,-,,-.
" shun it hut to make it sure,"
as is amply proven by his bearing during
the war. At a time when his re-election
ponded, disaster had sapped the enthusi
asm of army and peo.de. Taking the dis
trict rostrum, he passed lap idly around
among his people like a military evangel,
pleading tor freedom, for the country, and
for the army, forgetful of self and solicit
ous only to recruit our thinned lines of
battle. Friends, believing that his re
election was more valuable to the cause
The Northern Pacific. On the
10th cf September, at New York, a
meeting of the Directors of the
Northern Pacific Railroad was held.
The best of feeling prevailed and
the prospect of obtaining the subsidy
sought from Congress was considered
very good. Gen. Tilton, the Chief
Engineer of the Western Division,
was directed by the Board to com
mence the surveys on the Columbia
River towards the Dalles as soon as
! the explorations of the mountain
passes were completed. The surveys
of the Snoqualirjie, Cedar River and
Cowlitz passes are finished, and Mr.
YV. H. Carlton, new on the survey
of the Skywamish and Wenaehee
passes, and Mr. Treadvvay on the
Skagit River pass, will probably
finish their work in a few days, and
this will complete the explorations of
all the known passes of the Cascades
north of the Columbia and south of
latitude 40 degrees north. The sur
vey of the route along the Columbia
river, from Portland to Dalles, is
now in progress.
Too Mncti tiie Case. The Cali
fornia Farmer, speaking of the
" fashion" of paying the highest and
best premiums to gamblers, says:
" The Directors have been truly in
dustrious, aud have done what they
could to prepare the Hall and make
ready, and we hope to be able in our
next to make a good report, but like
other Fairs, we think " Horse" will
eat it all up. Horse takes the pool
and money. Farmers get '; Diplo
mas" or " Honorable Mention" We
will not say that the directors of the
State Agricultural Society in Oregon
have wantonly devoted too much
time and attention to fust slock, but
we think they have been most mis
erably imposed upon, and allowing
themselves to be thus imposed upon,
have imposed upou the mass of peo
pie in Oregon. Ii will not do to re
peat the dose.
That Excursion. The Portland
papers a few days since spoke of the
