and yet the prices paid for the wheat

have alike derived handsome profits,
while ship owners and others have re
ceived proportionate benefits.

Another Railroad Company was

The Oregonian's last New York
letter contains statement of several
important facts which should
the attention of the people of Oregon,
and particularly of those who have a
leading part in business here. It is
observed that with a rapid decline of
almost all kinds of goods in eastern
markets, there is a very heavy rise
in freights to the Pacific coast and
elsewhere. It follows that our mer
chants and people generally will be
unable to derive the advantage they
ought from a reduction in the prices
of goods at the cast and from a sale
of our own products for transporta
tion to other markets. This state of
facts suggests in a very practical and
forcible way, the necessity of 'art in
dependent trade for Oregon, remarks
the Oregonian, carried on directly
with the east by means of shippiug
owned and controlled at home. Even
if this should be impracticable to a
certain extent, and though freights
should not be materially reduced by
the fact of the shipping being owned
here, we should at least by this pros
cess get our trade clear of the em-
barrassments it suffers by passing
through so many hands, and thus re
lieve it of no inconsiderable part of
its burdens. Any project looking to
the accomplishment of results of this
sort would deserve attentive consid
eration Gail Hamilton deplores the fate

It is the interest of the State, and
of every individual in the State, to
increase the number of its inhabitants
thereby developing the rich material
which sleeps in the soil or in the
mines beneath. Industrious and la
borious hands are indispensable to
this ; and to draw them hither is the
very first duty of Legislative autbor-
We should never lose sight of this
fact, that our great "Western States"
on the Atlantic side, have most of
them appropriated large annual sums
to superinduce immigration from Eu
rope, and have organized boards of
commissioneis, as well as appointing
agents at home and abroad, for that
express purpose, while Oregon has
done nothing whatever to help the
distant stranger, either by informa
tion or aid.
However humiliating to our pride
this may be, we have only ourselves
to blame ; a narrow-minded policy,
and a want of comprehensive, states'
manlike view on this subject of such
para mount importance, have for years
past prevented any action on the part
of th. !o toward the promotion of
its most v-.al interests, while other
sections of the country have been
straining every nerve, and liberally
expending their means to secure that
prize which is the source of all wealth
Hon. Schuyler Colfax raised a
large fund the past season for the
benefit of the Grand Army of the
Republic by delivering his lecture:

every occasion: " The only " terms"
I make with you are that I shall not
be asked to accept any pay for lec
turing or traveling expenses, so that
the entire proceeds, without any de-.
duction, may be applied ft-r the ben
efit of disabled soldiers, and destitute
widows and orphans of those who
died that the Republic might live.
If it softens the rigors of the coming
winter to any of them, I shall be
more than compensated."

with her husband tho confidence of
the party that elected and supported

nothing less than a very badly

they took the oath. Kldridgo objected to
administering it to Stokes, on the ground
of disloyalty. It was moved to refer his
credentials to the committee on elections.
I'rooks (Democrat) objected to tho oath
being administered to any of the Tennes

had not a Republican form of govern

taken the oath of all
