handled the reconstruction plan, the

The " Ecpiality"' dodge he classified
into three parts: haul EviaUtj the
light to protection for life, liberty
and property, before the law; Pol li
ed ei'ial'ity, and Social equality
t-howing that in the latter, if Demo

After the adoption of the above

O i the first ballot 109 votes were
c ist, of which Mr. Logan had 54, and
Mr. Sullivan 51; 55 being nccessa
ry to a choice, no election was dc
dared, and the delegates proceeded
to ballot a second time, when Mr.
Lorr-i;, was declared unanimously
nominated, amidst the most vocifcr
ous eii' ciw.
Hon. W. W. fiuok of this city,
and Hon Jes.se Applegate of Yon
cailu, were then, upon vote of I ho
Convention, appointed to wait upon
the nominee, and ascertain if he would
accept of the nomination. Mr. Logan
made Lis appearance and thanked the
Convention for the high honor they
had conferred upon him, planted him
self upon the platform, and promised
all his energy and ability to fight the
great fitrhf.
The Convention soon quieted d.'wn
to woik, and the following ireritlc
men were elected as Presidential
Electors: A. I. Meacham of Union;

Resolutions tendering the thatiks
of the Convention to the O. S. N.

stage line, were unanimously ucL'pt
edv Als' a resolution of thanks to
Homer Smith, of the Capital Hotel,
tor his uniform attention to tht
wants of delegates while they re
mair.ed his guests.
After several speeches and a series
of enthusiastic cheering for the Union
ticket, for Gen. Grant and t lie cause
generally, the Convention adjourned
without day.
The people cf Oregon have chosen
as their standard-bearer in this cam
paign Hon. David Lrgan of Port
laud. Mr. Logan was not the first
choice of a large number of men w ho
felt that locality" might affect the
prospects of success of those who
desired that the Eastern or Southern
portion of the State should present
one cf their number; but, when the
solid delegations from the extreme
East and South, said to the Convene
tion; Gentlemen: We nsk it fur
none of us Give us David Logan!"
that became the unanimous wish of
the people, and he was nominated.
The enthusiasm which followed his
nomination is scarcely cescribable.
The Delegates left the State Capital
feeling that they had performed the
task entrusted to them faithfully, and
to the best- of their ability, everyway
and this feeling was encouraged
and their actions endorsed by their
constituents, upon reaching home.
On Thursday the steamer Fannie
Put'on brought the delegation of thi.--county
home, when they were receiv
ed with cheers on the wharf, and es
corted by the Oregon City Brass
Band, together with lion. A. B.
Meacham, one of the Pn s-iduitial
electors, Hon. W. W. Upton nomi
nee for Judge of the fourth Judicial
District, Hon. A. C- Gibbs, nominee
for Prosecuting Attorney, and others,
to the Court House, where Hon.
Henry Warren, acting as chairman
publicly thanked the delegation on
behalf of the citizens of this city, for
what the- had done in Salem.
Messrs. Meacham, Upton, and Gibbs,
briefly addressed the meeting, and
a rousing majority for the ticket was
HIE SPit Ee HE,1?
We regret that we cannot report a
few of the speeches made this week
at Salem, Portland, and Oregon City,
where wo have attended. Treason
and Democracy have fairly began
to quail in Oregon, and by the June
and November elections will Iiave hid
their hydra-heads forever. Their
multifarious evils could not be re
pressd by single efforts. Like the
serpent of Lorna they have been al
lowed to live until thc festering sorts
are literally abominable and now
like Hercules, the Union party pro-
pose to si ly them in Oregon. Their .
treasonable gashes have been cauter-
ized by the application of a flame cf
patriotic fervor among the people,
who have declared that the ballot
box shall prevent the further effusion
of patriot blood in our broad land.
As Hon. A. B. Mettchnm expressed
it Joseph and his brethern shall be
driven back into Egypt. Or as Hon.
W. D. Hare says: Their Goliah,
placed upon a negative platform of
principles, will meet the fate of Goli.
uh of old. at the hands of our David ;
who, standing firm upon the platform
of Freedom and Liberty, with the
sling of Truth, shall slay their Goliah
with the pebbles of Justice. The
burst of enthusiasm witnessed now nil
over Oregon (recollect it is not
confined to Clackamas and Multno
mah Counths) will expand, and
eventuate in disemboweling the car
rion carcass of Democratic Treason,
making its very eye-balls glare with
fury at its retributive death
A Pr.EVAUiCATiix. The Herald
of yesterday, no doubt feeling very
sore over the fact that the nomina
tion of linn. David Logan for Con
gress was the last spike to the Demo
cratic coffiii in Oregon, rather crook
edly noticed the extra trip of the
Senator to Portland on Thursday
evening and iu the course of its re
marks says:
'The musicians, not finding things as
lively politically in the city as they
expected, left their instruments on
board the boat."

Last week reference was made in
these columns to a set of New York
swindler?, and we hope the effect
will ba good.
We observe that some of our State
exchanges are still publishing the ad
vertisement of Wright, Brothers & Co.
1 Gl Broadway, notwithstanding we
hive given the public caution against
them. They are "black legs of the
i deepest dye.'' Their advertisement
came through a firm purporting to be
"Temple, Eichardson & Co." Their
proposals were by us referred to par
ties in New York, and as a conse
quence we ';took no stock'' in them.
Since last wei k, we have received
the following letter, from a cotcmpora
I perceive we have all been bilked
by ''Temple, Richardson & Co." Is
there no way of guarding Against
such imposition? 1 presume Burger,
Schutts & C . are of the same stripe,
although I saw their advertisements
in the 'Waahhty'on Chronicle. I
have, as a last resort, written them
to compromise by paying something.
I wish every publisher on the coast
would refuse to publish trade adver
tisements from San FranrUco houses.
The sewing machine humbugs have
never found place iu my columns since
its first year. I found that the cash,
com mission, per cent., freight, dray
p.ge, and the thousand and one items
connected with the purchase absolute
ly took every cent of profit. If the
journals on this coast would resolve
not to receive such advertisements,
the cash would come, Let us try it.
We were never guilty of taking
but two tradt advertisements that ot
Remington's Armory, and one small
card, now in. We shall never take
another, and should our agents at
tempt to saddle such upon us it would
be sufficient cause for us to play
quits. As to Schutts it Co., our Co
temporary need not apply for redress.
We published their advertisements o
months on their own representation,
and three mouths on the rcpresenta
tinns of Geo.P. Rowel! 5c Co., Agents,
40 Park Row, New York, We need
not add that we never got a cent for
this work. Now, when a foreign ad
vertisement is sent to this office it is
either paid for in advance, or vouched
for by men whom we know.
As regards San Francisco, we be
lieve J. J. Knowlton & Co. to be
swindlers. All our business there
comes through a responsible firm
L. P. Fisher & Co., California street.
The Publishers need not be imposed
upon, and in turn need not impose up
on their patrons, if they will only ex
ercise a little of that very useful com
modity common sense.
Insanity. Insanity is declared by
medical writers to be a disease cf
high civiliz ttion Nations w ho are
the most civilized and enlightened
are more apt to be afil.'oted with it
than those who make little or no
mental exiition. It is very rare
among the Africans and Indians, be
cause they do not exert the mind to
any marked degree. Dr. Livingston
states that he found only one or two
instances of it among the tribes that
he visted; but one of the B kwains
whm he wished to titkc to Europe
with him, became insane from the
throng of new ideas which oppressed
him, and committed suicide before the
voyage was over. Insanity, uu'il
recently, was almost unknown in
China, owing to the strict despotism
under which mental activity was re
strained. Lately, however, the in
crease of the use of opium has en
larged the number of lunatics. India
is comparatively free from it. It is
less frt quent in thoso parts of Europe
where political freedom is restrained,
than in countries which have con.-ti
tutional governments. In France,
the proportion of the insane is about
one to one thousand inhabitant-; in
England, one to seven hundred and
eighty three; in Scotland, one to five
hundred and sixty-three; and, in the
United States, one to seven hundred
and Guv.
The MisEur of IIcman Life.
The 7niserytf human life is made up
of large masses, each separated from
the other by certain intervals; one
year the death of a child; years after,
a failure in trade; after another long
cr er shorter interval a daughter may
have married unhappily. In all but
the singularly unloi tunate, the i rite-urn
I parts that count the sum total of
the unhappiness in a man's life, are
daily counted and distinctly remem
bered. The happiness of life, on the
contrary, is made up if minute frac-
lions; the little, soon-forgo? fpn char
ities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look,
a hearlfelt compliment in the disguise
of pin ful railery, and ihe countless
other ir.finitesim ds of pleasur eable
thought and genial feeliiv.

Col. J. K Kelley we have always-
re-neeted as a gentleman, but
it seems that he is falling from grace,
as shown by a copperhead speech
made at the Washington II ill in this
city, recently. It is strange that the
Democracy cannot confine them
selves to truth iu this campaign. Col
Kelly departed from the f ictsso wide
ly, iu his speech, that Hon. J. II.
Mitchell took occasion a few e veidn"'s
after, before the Grant Club, to show
up the falsehoods, and correct them.
His speech had a must excellent ef
fect. The Frontier Index states that in-,
credible deposits of gold and silver

Advantage of Yeau9 You arc
getting into years. Yes, but the
years are getting into you the rip"-,
rich years, the genial, mellow year--,
the lusty, lucious years. One by one
the crudities of your youth are falling
off from you, of vanity, the egotism,
the insulation, the bewilderment, the
uncertainty. Nenrer and nearer yon
are appro iching yourself. You are
consolidating yeuir forces. Y'ou are
becoming master of the situation
On the ruins of shattered plans you
find your vantage ground. Your
broken hopes, your thwarted pur
poses, your defeated aspirations, be
come a staff of strength by which you
mount to sublimer he;ghts. With
self-possession and self command c f
nil things, the tiile deed of creation,
forfeited, is reclaimed. The king has
come to his own again. Earth and
sea and sky pour out their largeness
ol love. Ail the crowds pass down
to lay its treasure at your feet.
