The following is a Washington dis
patch of Wednesday, December 11:
The Xational Uuion-ITepublican Ex
ecutive Committee met nt noon
to-dsy. All the members were pres"
ent in person or by proxy, except
those from Michigan, Kansas and
West Virginia. A proposition was
submitted to change the name to the
National Union Convention, but
aiter some discussion it was with
.drawn, ali the members agreeing
that the change was not advisable.
The time for holding the convention
was fixed on the 20th of May, only
six members voting for a later day,
say the middle of July or first of Ju
ly. There was not much debate on
this point. The chief discussion arose
on the question where the convention
should be held. Cincinnati and Indi
anapolis were represented by special
committees. St. Louis was urged
by Missouri Congressmen, and the
advantages of Chicago were set forth
in a letter signed by several leading
citizens of that place. Horace Gree
ley strongly urged that Cincinnati
should be selected. His strong point
was that the convention ought to be
held at a place where the party is
weak and needs help. Mr. Cook, of
Illinois, answered that according to
this argument New York City ought
to be chosen. This retoit raised a
langh, and finished Mr. Greeley's
speech. The first ballot resulted:
Chicago 8, Cincinnati G. Indianapolis
5, St. Louis 3. Second ballot the same.
Third and fourth ballots : Chicago 10,
Cincinnati G,St. Louis and ludianapu
lis 3 each. On the fifth ballot Chica
go received 12, Cincinnati 10. The
vote in favor of Chicago was then
made unanimous, and the committee
adjourned, subject to the call of the
Chairman. It mav be added that at
least three-fourths of the members are j
ruut men tor tue next contest.
The American Unionist closes a
leader last week on the opening cf
the campaign, as follows: Therefore,

every good Union man should hate

The Salem papers are publishing a
JFar Bulletin, daily, weekly, and all
the time. The " occasion for all
this, grew out of something Asahel
Bush should have said or did say
about Sam Clarke, and Sam's retort
through the press. The first bulle
tin reads thus, from the Unionist:
Bush accosted Clarke, who replied
saucily, threatening to call him an
ugly name, if he didn't get away.
Bush retorted in kind, or a little nas
tier, quoting an editorial from the des
fuact Statesman. Thereupon Clarke,
becoming vipsnorting mad, began to
jump stiff-legged round in a circle,
with the probable intention of " go
ing behind the Bush;" the other in
the meantime punching at him with
his stick. In the course of this very
severe and exciting round, Bush man
aged to get in a couple of licks on
Claike's stovepipe, knocking out the
crown, and otherwise demoralizing the
structure; but owing to a thick pad
ding of newspapers and old rags, the
club didn't get in to where the head
was, and, for obvious reasons, didn't
knock out his brains. Great excite
ment ! Men running and dogs bark
ing ! At this juncture, "Mr. Superin
tendent Huntington interposed, and
took away Bush's stick, the adversa
ries expectorating and clawing at one
another over the top of the " Indian
Bureau." In the melee, Mr. Hunt
ington lost his hat, which Clarke
jerked up, together with Bush's stick,
and ran up stairs, where lie was
found flourishing the cane and exe
curing a Choctaw war dance round
the hat, which he had mistaken for
the enemy's scalp. Thus ended the
most side-splitting encounter that has
happened since the celebrated duel
between Mistress O'Shauucssy and
The boys say Sim Clarke is armed
and on the war-path, after Bush.
The armament is said to consist of a
gigantic Allen's pepper-box, strapped
on his back lengthwise. To put the
gun m position, it is only necessary
to get down on his hands and knees ;
and when he desires the apparatus to
revolve, he turns over.

I gladly avail myself of your kind per
mission to address your readers on the all
important subject of Education.
I eater upon this task with more than
ordinary diffidence diffidence in my own
ability, not distrust in your generous in
dulgence, for it is not the first time I have
experienced the kindness, the hospitality,
the high spirit of American citizens. I
trust you will not deem me egotistical or
self-interested, if I treat in somewhat high
terms of the profession of which I am an
humble member. I wish to advocate the
cause of teachers generally of the whole
scholastic body. I wisli to elevate them
higher in the scale of society, and to make
them worthy of that elevation. In short,
to place them, as a class, in their proper
status, by the side of the other three pro
fessions. I rejoice to find that in this, your infant
city, where every day presents fresh claims
to public attention, gives birth to some
new appeal to important interests, and
presses so many contending solicitations
lor your time, labor, and contributions : I
rejoice, I sav, to find that amidst these ab
sorbing interests you have not neglected
the great, the most important duty of all,
the education of your children. You have
already founded a .Seminary, which, in the
hardiness of its youthful growth, here on
the verge of the wilderness, gives promise
of a useful and prosperous longevity. This
is not said in the spirit of adulation. I
consider it a matter not confined to your
selves. It. is a subject of congratulation
in every county cf the fcUate- to all the
friends of education for you acted in
conformity to the spirit of tho age, with
the self-reliance, determination and char
aeterisuc perseverance of Amu'ic:in5.
Thus the preliminary work is accom
plished: the rubbish is cleared away, the
foundations are laid; you have now only
to raise the superstructure. This small
commencement will in time expand into a
model training school. a literary institution,
a college, a university; but this will require
time, it will grow with the growth of your
city. And let me remind you that the

Medical Jurisprudence. Hon.
J. II. Mitchell is now delivering a
course of lectures before the Medical
class of the Willamette University at
Salem. The Unionist says:
The course will consist of twenty
four lectures, two each day. His
lectures have evidently been prepared
with great care and research, and are
delivered in a very distinct, forcible
and agreeable manner. The subjects
necessary to be treated require a
knowledge of law and physiology.
Medical Jurisprudence beir.g the
science which applies the principles
and practices of the different branches
of Medicine to doubtful questions in
courts of justice.
For example: in murder, rape
cases, and others, the testimony of
an intelligent and thoroughly edu
cated physiciau may, other evidence
being indecisive, decide the fate of
the accused. The doctor's scientific
knowledge tells him what wounds
were necessarily mortal, and what
evidence on the part of the prosecu
tion is incompatible with physical
laws. In the treatment of this com
plicated subject Mr. Mitchell mani
fests grtat skill and learning.
In relation to the physicians high

Oregon Commission Agenct.
Advices to the 23d, from the above
agency, Xo. 95 Liberty street, New
York City, are at hand. Capt. J. M.
Keeier, late of Salem, who is at the
head cf this agency writes as follows.
" I believe if Oregon ians buying in
San Francisco really understoood the
difference between that market and
this, they would soon be getting their
supplies from New York. After a
time some one from the principal
towns will order, and when ihcir
neighbors see them marking their
goods " down," and with increased
grains, others will look in the same
direction. It may be said that the

the best terms."
There can be no doubt whatever,
but that Oregon annually loses more
than enough to equip a line of clip
por ships, to do her transporting, by
purchasing in California, of men who
buy iu the Eastern markets. We
have long felt the want of tonnage to
take array our production?, and, for
one, wc can say
that since 1&G3,
rect trade with New York has been
our hobby. But Lobbies, like all
others horses, work slowly in Orc
g. Grant. A private later to the
Editor, dited Washington City De-
comber 16th, states that the tide in !
favor of Grant for President is irre
sistible. It is highly probable that
to Illinois. ve should be perfectly
willing to ignore the question of " lo
cality" in this case. If Grant has to
be made the nomiuce for President,
let us hope that the 1SG-1 vote of the
Oregon Dalegation to the Republi
can National Convention may be
made successful in 1SC8. We hope
that the State Convention which is to
meet at Portland soon, will renomi
nate at least one member on tho last
list of Delegates, who lives up at
! Hsrrisburg and is commonly known
as " Hi. Smith." If he goes to
Chicago, and Oregon is given a back
seat, he will see to it that that seat
is again placed to the front, and that
Orctroa will be heard and known.
The intelligent Democracy of
Marion county have formed a club at
Salem. Their organ, the Chronicle,
publishes the "Constitution" of the
Club, the preamble of which com-
mences with-.Whereas: On the now
ensuing campaigns both Federal and
State, known in the history of our
country as rapidly coming upon us
in which we will be called upon to
act public guardians of the rights and
Liberties of the people," etc. It is
clear that the "Democracy" of Salem
wond do well to follow the example
of the colored folks, and get tip an
evening school, says the Oreyonian.
Fno.r . Astoria. On Thursday
Mr. Ilicklin a messenger, arrived at
Portland from Astoria, bringing dis
patches from Capt. Thorne, of the
Orijlamme. That steamer reached
Astoria on the 9th and has probably
by this lime again departed for San
Francisco. This messenger was ten
days on the route, and suffered very
much, and brought but meagre in
telligence of the shipping.
Ihe harbor charges at San
Francisco for a vessel of 1,000 tons,
remaining 15 days, would be $1,140
in coin, against 8130.57 in New
York nnder similar circumstances.
The Union says everybody appears
to be surprised that such a state of
j affairs, could have continued so lon
