of the old political leaders of the
State. Hon. A. II. Stewart was
male president, and among the vice.
. presidents eye re 11. M. T. Hunter,
'1 Iwmiii? S. Bocoik, and cx Gover.
nor Letcher. The object of this
body was to protest against there
construction measures of Congress,
and especially against negro suffrage.
qMt. Stewart in his speech, on taking
the chair, said: "Our rights may be
wrested liotn us,- but we will never
ngree to the rule of an alien and
itxferior race; we prefer the rule d
the bayonet.'' lie did not, however,

jiesoccea, in.-.t we renew our
pledge of adherence and unswerving
fi ebty to the time-honored principles'
of the Democratic parly.
The " time-honored principles, '' in
cludf, of course, the di g tia of State
rights, the excuse for which was pre
tended to be found in the Virginia
rid Kntuky ri-tdut ions, which
Democratic conventions have endors
ed ever sinc. They appeared new
about seventy years ago. As this
dogma of State rights, culminated in
treason and a murderous rebellion,
costing ti3 some billions of dollars,
the lives of some hundreds of thou
sands of brave men, Democratic pol
iticians are perhaps excusable forgo
ing back on the whole thing, by call
ing it simply " time-honored prin
ciples." Resolved, That the Federal Gov
ernment is rue of limited powers,
granted by the States in a written
Constitution, which is the sole meas
ure of its authority in war and in
peace, and is alike Jaw for the ruler
Tins resolution U 5 Buncombe."
Or in other words, it is in so general
term", that anybody can agree or dis
agree as to what it means, nnd it
sounds well, besides. " The Federal
Government isoneof limited oowers."
Certainly if the Federal Govern
ment should attempt to change the
" Order of t he seasons,'' so that we
could all have Ice Cream on the 4th
of July, the thing miht be in itself
desirable and popular, but it would
of course be unconstitutional; in short
the thing could'ut he did. '-Limited
powers, granted by the States, in a
written Constitution, which is the
sole measure of its authority in war
and in peace." As Iron clads and
Emancipation, are not included in
the granted powers, of course they
are unconstitutional, and for them and
many other outrages up"n the reserv
ed rights of the Southern States, in
the late unconstitutional tear, of
course the Federal Government
will make ample apology, and com
pensation, as soon as the Democrats
come in power.

foundation of our strength and pros

Htsolved, That the Constitution of
the United States confers no power
on Congress to legislate upon the in
teinal a flairs of the Slates composing
Tins is the smallest dodge in the
whole list of resolutions. State
rights and the rebellion, are here en
dorsed in the most innocent and
unpretending manner. The idea is
stolen from false Buchanan's last
message, and by an adroit change of
expression is sugar coated for the
purpose of coirellit.g votes. Hear
Buchanan, in 1SG(), just us the thun
ders of the rebellion were bursting
over the land. " The qnes'ion fiirly
stated, is, has the Constitution dele
gated to Congress the power to coerce
into submission a State which is at.
tempting to withdraw, or has actually
withdrawn from the Confederacy?
After much sincere ri flection, 1
have arrived at the conclusion that
no such power has been delegated to
Congress, or to any other department
of the Government." Joe Lane was
big with this idea, when as a Senator
of the United States, he proposed
to go down and allow the troops of
his Government to walk over his
dead body, in case they concluded to
make a breach in the sacred internal
affairs of States m rebellion, by com
pressing their boundaries. Afterwards
he repented so fir as not to go him
self, but sent his son John. It will
bf remembered that Mar) land and
Kentucky blustered a great deal,
making this very claim of the sacred
character of their internal affair,
soil included, which they arrogantly
said National troops should not
pass over. This resolution, stripped
of all disgni-es, is a bit of bald
faced treason, in theory.

PUBLIC SPEAKING IX OBEGOX
Our Court House was densely pac
ed on Tuesday afternoon, when the
champions Hon. David Logan, and
Rev. Joseph Smith, met to discuss the
political principles which solately con
vulsed our nation in war, and which
yet disturb the body politic with rum
bling echoes, betraying a spirit of
anarchy and rebellion, scarcely tamed
to peace. We have not time nor space
to characterize the speeches, as we
could wish, for we are fully satisfied
that if they could both be spread
broadcast over the land, and rrad
impartially by all classes, the fleet
would be ujosi salutary to the Union
Joseph Smith, led off for an hour
and a half, mostly of railing nt the ne
gro, for being black, for getting his
freedom, (this is the real crime of ne
gro equality,) and for wanting protec
tion to life and liberty. The impu
dence cf it.
The Reverend Joseph, evidently
takes an entirely Egyptian view of
the escaped bondmen, which he will
have time to repent heartily, before he
touches bo'.lom as an AT. C. In other
words he will have to run faster than

who have resolved never to lay aside
their arms, until the battle of princi

force, is decided for the right, and the
final triumph won !
The Prince of LrAR3. A corres
pondent a-ks: ,k Who isis the Prince
of Liars ?" It would indeed be a
hard question to answer, at this time.
The epithet was applied to Ferdinand
Mendz Pmto.a celebrated Portugese
traveler of the lGth century. lie pub
fished an account of his travel-, full of
extravagant fictions, wh eh caused l.im
to be classed with Sir J. h:i Mande
ville and Munchausen. There can be
not a doubt but that the Prince of
modern liars is somewhere in the
Democratic party. He will come to
the surface soon. Joseph, we should
judge, resembles Ferdiimni son ewhut
in personal appearance, and when he
has done reining his acco nts of
travels in the 19th century, if what
we have heard be a specimen, will no
doubt be entitled to the epithet.
A Gkeat Displacement of At
MosniEUE. We are informed that
Culchas has worked himself into such
a rage that he has decided thnt it
is necessary, in order to get rid of
the remaining moral-filth thai has ac
cumulated in his disordered brain, to
take the stump infavor of the Jeff.
Davis doctrine. We would advise
the Copperheads to provide him a
sound stump, as his ponderous frame
might otherwise mash it down: and
it would be a pity to have so
weighty a friend of Jiff, splashed out
ly a fall from a Copperhead stump.
The Webfoot os his Travels.
Joseph tells of how horror riz up in
him, like a mushroom, on visiting a
Radical meeting at Richmond, on his
travels. He says a negro presided,
a negro was Secretary, and negroes
addressed the meeting. Why does
he not tell the whole truth about
that horrid sight, which has so dis
eased his imagination 1 Why does
he keep it from the public that that
meeting was called by negroes, and
for negroes only, and that Jo. Smit1!
and one other Webfoot were the
onl v w htte men in it ?

Ed. Enterprisb :
The Uniori Club cf Marquam precinct
effected a permanent organization on
Saturday, the 4th hist, by electing M. Pat
terson. President, A. Marquam. Vice Presi
dent, I. W. Garrett, Secretary. Frank
Cooper, Assistant Secretary and Thomas
After the organization was effected. Gov.
Gibb3 was introduced to the large audi
ence of ladies and gentlemen who bad
assembled to hear him. and delivered a
speech which was replete with good sense,
stubborn facts, and sound logic ; com
pletely vindicating the Union party from
the charges preferred against it, and show
ing up, in a masterly manner, the treach
erous character, treasonable history, and
ignominious future of the democratic party.
After the Governor concluded his speech
Wm. Heed of Portland came forward and
took the stand, and was introduced to the
audience by the President of the Union
lie got off rather slow at first, which
may be attributed to the fact that an over
whelming majority of the audience were
opposed to him, and that lie knew if Dem
ocratic strategy should be resorted lo he
would be left without an audience, and
compelled to speak to an empty house :
but when he discovered that Union men
were not afraid to hear him. and that he
would neither be deserted nor mobbed,
he became reassured, and branched out in
pretty good democratic style.
Mr. Heed is a man of some talent, but
he has a very treacherous memory ; and
judg from his speech he has been er
joying a kind of Hip Van Winkle sleep
during the last seven or eight years, from
which he is but just awakened. lie ap
pears to remember, with some degree of
accuracy, the history of the Democratic
party during the seventy years that he
says it had control of the nation, but he
avers that he had forgotten the existence
of such a man as Jo. Jane, and he seems
to know nothing more of James Huchanan
than that he is a fossilized old fogy, who
at some remote period was President of
the United States.
There is one chapter in the history of
the Democratic party which has escaped
h s observation, and be can only remem
ber it as it existed in the early days of its
pride and power, when such men as Jef
terson. and Jackson and Denton gave it a
dignity luster which it will never again
enjoy. Such modern Democratic stars as
James Huchanan. Jeff. Davis. John 13.
Floyd. Wirz, Winder. Wilkes Hooth. and
Andrew Johnson have risen and set while
Mr Heed slept. We were rather inclined
to congratulate him that he has been
wrapped in the sweet embrace of Mor
pheus while the billows of war have been
surging against the yiillars of our govern
ment, and that while the wail ot widows
and orphans, and the groans of the dying
have mingled with the shouts of contend
ing hosts, he was not disturbed, but
"Alike unconscious of our bosom s throes,
And of the tea.'s we shed."
Hut Mr. Heed lias been aroused from his
long nap. and after rubbing his eyes open,
he gazes around with a bewildered look,
to find the scepter of power departed from
the democracy. Like his venerable nro
totype. he gropes among the crumbling
ruins of the past, a stranger in his own
land. His memory recalls the loaves and
fishes of (ifiice. and straightway he starts
forth as a teacher of the people in the
"time honored principles.' lie advises
us to "let the dread past bury its dead"'
to forget that chapter in the history of the
"democracy"' which recites the story of its
infamy, to blot out from the book of our
remembrance the tragic scenes of four
years of civil war. and to restore to pow
er the party, which after governing this
country during the greater part of its ex
istence, had not patriotism enough left to
survive one single defeat at the polls,
but plunged the nation into civil war. be
cause the people discarded it for iis crime?
against, the fundamental axioms ot freedom
Hut Mr. Heed's case is not a hopeless
one. he is but just arisen from a long and
peaceful slumber, and hps not had time to
become familiar with the changed condi
tion of things, lie lives in the past, and
must become familiar with the present:
but we must be allowed to insist that, un
til he has time to adjust his mental facul
ties, and assume his mental equilibrium,
he is not competent to become a public
teacher. I. W. G.

Pioneer Oil Mill at Salem, lately. The
Company have a very complete establish

$22,000, in addition to which they have
expended about $13,000 for stock, seed,
elc. To one who has an interest in the
development of Oregon, this mill presents
a '-gushing'' topic. Oil is produced equal
to any in the whole world, at San Fran
cisco prices, at the rate of 200 gallons per
day. There is a demand for the product
now about equal to the supply. When we

Mr. Wm. A. K. Mellen. published on the

will do you good.
There are l,5b'8 lakes in Maine.
some of which are from 1,200 to

It is claimed that no other area of

At Mound City, on the Missis
sippi, there are eight Monitors laid
up; and as ihe care of them is rather
a costly and troublesome job, it is pro

A bill is now before the Massa
chusetts Legislature, which provides
that "any city or town may choose

Oswego. This Stirling town has
been considerably "over-estimated'
by the unterrified, in basing their
calculations for success in this county
at the coming election. It "has beer,
asserted, time and again, by Demo
crats, that Oswego would give this
county into their hands. They
omitted taking into their " estimates'"
those zealou, active members of the
Union party who live in Oswego, and
are alive to the work. We admit
that the Democrats have several
strong men in their party at Oswego
but, you see, there is not enough
of that sort. It is votes that count,
not always strength. Our old friend
J. A. McDonald is a strong Demo
crat, we respect him, he gives liber
ally for the cause; we adm'.re his
pluck and wish he would give us an
opportunity to applaud his judgment.
Recently this Democratic friend
raised a Democratic pole at Oswego
last Saturday our Uuion friends

may he taken as an indication of the
way the vote of Oswego will be cast.
The Copperheads appear to be
much exercised at the inconsistency
of Congress, in violating the spirit
of the resolution of July, 18G1, de
claring the object of the war to be
"alone for the preservation of the
Union." Now the Revolutionary
fathers, to whom the Democrats al
ways point as models of consistency
and patriotism, ate chargeable with
the same error.

news of the passage of the act out

offering a reward for the capture of
certain prominent statesmen.
This instantly changed the face of
affairs, and the D-claration of Inde

using their slaves and everything
within their reach for the destruc

us to abandon our pacific course

we know that Barman Bro.'s have the most
