Collection- of Taxes in Clackamas
Cocntt. Among other false statements
being made use of by the left wing of
Trice's army in this county is : That
Sheriff Burns has collected a large amount
of taxes more than he has accounted for.
Now, the Democrats know that Sherilf
Utirns ba.s done no such thing. They
know that every such statement is a base.
ungrateful, unmitigated falsehood. 1 hey
know that he has collected and turned
over to the county for six years past, the
taxes assessed here, nearer to the full
amount than any heri;f or tax collector
ever elected by them. They know that
these attacks upon Mr. Burns are wilful,
mischievous, and solely of a personal
character. Last November the tax list
for LSG7 was placed in his hand-", lie is
required by law to pay over to the Treas
urer once in each month. This he has
done promptly ; and as required by law
on Tuesday last in making a return to
the April session of the County Court we
find that out of the total tax S:iO.:lO,h7.
be has collected and paid over S2!?.320.56
or to within S2.070.31 of the whole sum.
for all of w hich he has the receipt of the
County Treasurer. This does not look
very muchjike an embezzlement of funds,
does it ? Look at the facts in the case,
and then judge as to the ungratefulness of
these charges by Democrats against Mr.
Uurns. lie has never, in but one instance,
sold personalsproperty to make taxes.
lit has waited upon Ijemocreds months for
their tai-es, and in some cases when it was
necessary to m.vke his returns, has paid
money oxd of his oven pocket, etnd collected
ff 'delinquents afterwards, (the larger por-
lion of whom were Democrats,) rather
than force a sale of their effects. We do
certainly think that Mr. Burns will retire
from oifice with more friends than men
generally have, at the expiration of a
long term like his has been iu the unenvi
able place he has filled. And further; that
with the exception of the few w hining
curs on his track, none will refuse to en
dorse all that he has done. To utterly
destroy such statements as have been cir
culated regarding the transactions of Mr.
Burns we appeal to the books of the
fiherilf and Treasurer, which will show
that, instead of his paying the largest pro
portion over in scrip, he has paid it in
coin. The records show that on the lOih
of November the tax roll was placed in
his hands for collection. On the 5;h. titli.
Uth, 12th a-Hd 20th of December, pay
ments were mad-;, aggregating $10,851,71.
of which $7.ii1.5o, were in coin. In
January three payments were made ag
gregating $(i.723.21. of which sum .3.023.-
1 was in coin. In February two pay
ments, aggregate 1 478.40, were made, of
which $3.21)0 was in coin. On Match 7th
$1,831,80 was paid, of which sum $1,790.

7th $1,420.10 was paid, of which S2.4M.tSG
was in coin. The total sum of $28,320.51!.
being the whole amount collected to April
7th, thus shows to have been paid over as

''Local Jolunals." We appreciate the
liind, uninterested advice of those of our
Democratic friends who wish r.s v eil so
long as we make a good local paper. They
tt:y they will give us praise for that but
cannot support a political paper here.
They say there ought, not to be but tico
papers in the State devoted to polities
and they ought to be monsters ; beside the
Mnail. little daniiy county papers, which
should be derotcJ tr ayrlcuUure, etc. But.
let us ask where will you find a Democratic
paperin Oregon half as devoted to the
matenal interests of their locality as the
Republican sheets? Gentlemen:
"If you can neglect your own nppropria
inents. but praising that

You shall be lunch believed here.''
The Enterprise made iis appearance on

A Pioxeehs Visit. For the first time
in about twelve year, on Weiaes liy last
oar worthy cotempor.iry across the fray.
Jlr. J. Flenrnz. visited Portland. There
are certainly but few persons in Ihe world
who can show a more close attention to
"business than Mr. Fleming. We are pleas
ed to learn that he was well treated by old
a-oeiates on this visit. Ilis allotted days
are drawing to aclo-e. and soon time shall
vcort him across the widcrivertoth.it
land so often promised by Jehovah to the
Patriarchs of old. Mr. Flemhnr, it may
not be generally known, is the Pioneer of
Printers on the" Pacific Co ist. at a very
early day. here in Oreiron City, he pub
lished the first journal, west of the Mis
souri river, and from that time to the
present has lived and been respected by
all by whom he has been surrounded.
Salmon. We have elsewhere referred
to the trout of this county, but it must not
1e prrsumed that we have no heavier fish.
The Willamette Falls have always been
famous for salmon. Mr. Gordon is this
year catching more of them than ever. In
no other country, that we can speak from
n knowledge of, are salmon anil trout such
ordinary dishes that the laboring man
will even turn up his nose at them. The
delicacies of other hinds are common food
in Oregon oysters, fi-h. game, and every
product under the sun. may be had here
Cocxty Cotkt. The April session of the
County Court for this county. Judge Mat-b-R-k

Matlock has tried many of the most im

doubt feels a relief at a" short respite.

Seminary Report. The term closed
this week under very favorable circum
stances. We regret that we were unable
to visit the school during the teim. We
feel that it is principally owing to neglect
that we did not ; and we promise our
faithful Principal to dd better in the fu
ture. We feel a pride in the school, how
ever, whether we find time to visit it or
not, and from what we are able to learn,
from disinterested parties, all citizens have
cause to be proud of the Institution. The
progress of the pupils, we have been as
sured, in all departments during the term
just ended has been inure marked than
during any preceding term of the year.
We doubt whether any one Institution in
the fcjtulo embraces a more extended
course of studies from the alphabet to the
classics, and from, the simplest rules to the
most abstract sciences. In fact, the Su
perintendent has for some time had it in
view to obtain a charter tor the Seminary,
by which means it would soon rank among
the graduate Institutions of the country.

Trolt Fisuino. There is hardly a brook
in this county in which the speckled trout
is "ot 10 ue tounu : uiu ine viacKanias, on
account of iis purity and coldness, is no
doubt the favored resort of those beauties.
Several of" our friends have lately made
raids upon these streams, and the luck
ones, or the adepts et well paid. For
two Saturdays past " the boys of the office"
have met with very good success. They
report that bayous are plenty which af
forded more than average spurt, and that
if the sportsm in is a shrewd desciple of
old Izaak he may hit localities that are
sure to give him minting to his hearts con
lent. Once in a while we hear accounts
that fairly excite in us the highest pisca
torial enthusiasm ; but when we hear the
other side, i. e. the adventures cf such
trout (idle men as Bud T. .or AI. W. .
v. e think we can appreciate a string of the
speckled delicacies better by ' hooking
on'" to them without the aid of line and
' fly," at some heap spread out miscella
neously about the doors of our provision
stores. We admire trout, but we hesitate
to tread upon the brink of slippery shores,
or hang suspended from limbs 'where hats,
meerschaum pipe and gold watches are
sometimes lest overboard.
Stamped En veloi'ks. The old fashioned
postage stamp, once considei'd so grease a
convenience is now votojl a nuisJnce.
They are so often lost whifrf used, and are
so often forgotten by Vitets of letters,
that the department "has decided to dis
courage their further um.'. Accordingly,
discontinuing their further manufacture,
it is determined to issue in future only
stamped envelopes. These will be issued
of all sizes and of ail icites of postage;
and to encourage their general use, they
will be sent to any addicts, when three
hundred are oruered. with the printed
notitieadou on the back to return to the
writer if not called for in a specified time.
This reloading aiso will be done free of
postage; In so doing the Department has
met a pub ic want, and soon we shall s. e
no more stamps separate from the en
velopes. The public may make good use
of what envelopes they have on hand.
ihe Ircqtient appeals to

is often amusing. Last week one d ty a

in this city on Joseph's success over David.
The Chabenged party responded wi h the

to take a small bet. wanted to go over

all in the crowd, any one of which would
have taken the better at his proposition,
but he concluded not to go a cent upon
the result. r
