TIIK ..TIME-, HOOUEl)PHINCI-
Sinoe (he Democratic party of this State
has reaffirmed its adherence to the " tixxe
honored principles of the Democratic par
ty,'' it is proper that we pnse, and ascer
tain, if possible, the exact nature of those
principles. A stranger would naturally
infer that tho '-time honored principles''
nr so well donned and understood, that
2) their most illiterate nndtupid adherent
would be able to explain them ; never
theless, it is a fact that many of them do
not know that the principles here referred
to are the foundation heresies of secession
yet such is the fact.
The "time honored principles'' here
referred to are embodied in the celebrated
Kentucky and Virginia resolutions of
iJJ9H.i799, frui w"ich the secession hero
: pies hare sprung.
The former of thc?e resolutions was
originally drafted by Thomas Jefferson
and the latter by James Madison; and
'though Jefferson recognized as the apos
tle of Democracy, yet this heresy is the
only Jell'ersonian doctrine to which the
Democracy still adheres. His declaration
that -all men are created equal," has been
!eclared by the "Democracy'7 a self evi
dent lie." His views upon the slavery ques
tion were never endorsed by the party,
and indeed, among all the opinions held
.by Jefferson, they have onpjj retained the
qpc which has been dignified as the '-States
.rights doctrine,' embodied in the resolu
tions of '98, and which Jefferson would
.doubtless Lave discarded,, could he have
foreseen their consequences.
The eighth, of the original draft of the
Kentucky resolutions declared that when
Congress assumes powers not delegated
by the people, (the States themselves be
ing the sole judges,) i-)mdlificaiion of the
net is the right remedy, and that every
State lias a natural right, in cases not with
in the compact to nullify of their own au
thorily. all assumptions of power, by others
within their limits."
This idea is involved in tho second
resolution of the democratic platform of
the Statt which may be regarded as ex
planatory of the first ; and though obscur
ed with plausible verbiage, and glitterin
generalities, yet when sifted to the bottom,
the declaration that the Federal govern
ment is one of limited powers granted by
the Slates f instead of by the people, un
doubtedly inculcates the doctrine that the
States are superior to the Federal govern
But there is another false idea inculcat
ed in the fu st resolution of the democratic
platform, and it is this ; that all the doc
trines of the Democratic party are m.
changeable, that they have all existed, and
been recognized as distinctive features of
democratic policy, ever since the founda
tion oflie government. The tenth is that
the Democratic party has only existed, as
a national orgaiviiation, since 18:5.1. Par
ties, in this country, have taken their rise,
nnd assuTned positions wpoa the leading
issues, as they have presented themselves
from time to time, and have been known
by various names, at different times. It
U not true that the issues all remain un
changed, nor is it tine that the 7-anie of
the Democratic party remains unchanged.
The only doctrine advocated by the
modern Democratic party which can be
traced back to the early days of the F,o-
jmblic. is the one embodied in the resolu
tions of- 98 and '99. These doctrines form
the distinctive 'features of the Democratic
these, then, are the time, honored
uwiw unsumuing tnese
principles have fallen, in the stern arbitra
ment of war, the Oregon democracy still
reaffirm their adherence to them.
The Democratic party came into exist-
iee more than seventy years ago, when
Ashington was President, thaugh it did
not then assume lis present name. The
materials from which it was constructed,
were found in that class of people who at
first opposed the formation, and afterwards
f he adoption of the FederarConstiiution,
g)getber with that class of foreign adven-
tuer,who had been attracted to this coun
try by its success in the revolution or who
tad been forced io leave their own conn
tries, through their attachment to the cause

gathered all the elements of opposition,
including those who were opposed to pay
ing the debt contracted during the revolu
tion, attracted by the " pocket argument"'
which has always been a potent element
of Democratic strategy. The party form
ed of these elements began to make itself
felt early in the second term of Washing
ton's administration as an opposition par
ty. The manner of its opposition was so
ungenerous and unprincipled, that even
that great and good man, was forced to
refer to it in the most indignant terms.
Nor were there acts wanting to show that
violent means might be used in opposition
to the laws of the country.
The Whisky Insurrection in Pennsylva
nia in 1790, was the work of Democrats,
and was the first out-cropping of the spirit
of rebellion, which took form in the reso-
utious of 1798, and culminated in thw
great rebellion of 1SC1.
But President Washington was not a
weak inefficient man, like James Buchan
an, and he took hold of the rebels of Penn
sylvania with an iron hand, and made
them glad to Eue for pardon.
But the administration of Washington
becoming popular, the opposition, led by
Jefferson, arrayed themselves against the
financial measures of the government, un
til, during the administration of the elder
Adams, the alien and sedition laws were
enacted, when the opposition saw in them
the opportunity of gaining power. Though
these laws were never enforced, they an
swered the purpose of the opposition, and
made Jefferson President.
It was during this excitement that the
Resolutions of "98 and "99 were adopted.
Theso resolutions were the dragon's
teeth sown, whose harvest was secession
and all its attendant evils of war and blood.
The poisonous seeds thus carelessly sown,
in a time of great political excitement, in
opposition to an unpopular measure, in
due time sprang up, and bore fruits which
their author would have repudiated, could
he have foreseen them. These resolutions
received the positive disapproval of Wash
ington, who in a letter to Patrick Henry
declared that their tendency was to des
troy this Union."
These doctrines became the creed of the
Democratic party, and they contain the
heresy of nullification and secession. They
declare that the Constitution i3 a mere
compact bettceen Stales. No man who be
lieves in these resolutions and they have
embodied the faith of the Democratic par
ty lor seventy vcars, can honestly, or con
sistently say that he believes the govern
ment did right in coercing the States into
obedience to the laws of the country ;
hence those who endorse the war, and be
lieve in the national idea, must discard the
Pemocrcfic idea, and therefore repudiate
the time honored principles."'
The issues involved in the war were be
tween the national principle, and the Dem
The national principle triumphed ; and
yet the democracy, with that persistency
which will not be convinced, insists upon
the very same dogma that the war demol
This is but an additional reason why
the modern Democratic party should not
be allowed to retrain power. It still ad
heres to the principles which have culmin
ated in treason, secession, and blood. It is
instinctively treasonable ; and treason and
secession are embodied in its '-time honor
ed p:inciples." Replace that party in
power, and we shall Bee repeated all that
followed from its anger, when the people
rose" up in their majesty and hurled it from
Multnomah County. Among the
evidences of the wealth of Oregon
which Dr. Lory ea takes with him to
the Eastern States, is a certified
statement of the assessed valuation of
property in Multnomah county. It
appears from it that the value of real
and personal property withia the
county is $5,004,800; of which sum
over 800,000 is on the eastern side
of the Willamette river; and prop
erty of the value of $4,204,800 is on
the western sides of the river; and
that the sum of $5,0fM S00 is about
fifty per cent of the actual cash value
of the property within the county.

Dr. Benson, Editor of the Ad
vocate while at Acapulco on the even
ing of the Hth, of March, en route
to Xew York, wrote a paragraph con
cerning Mexicans which U very in
teresting. We quote from the let
ter as follows :
" The city has not changed in ap
pearar.ee, since my first visit over six
teen years ago. The old fort at the
east end of ihe city has undergone
repairs Maxmmilian's army occu
pied it in 1SG4, and left it iu fair con
dition. Acapulco has a population
of about five thousand souls, mostly
Mexican ; there are a few foreigners
engaged in business whose residence
in the place is temporary. There is
not a coach, omnibus, wagon, car
riage or dray, in the city ; and it is
believed there is none in the country.
Transportation, through the country,
is carried forward in primitive style.
Pack animals are employed for the
purpose. The mule manages to pur
sue the tortuous and precipitous trails
with speed and safety. Such is the
manner of prosecuting business and
carrying forward commerce in the
principal seaport of Mexico. Such
is the type of civilization iu an old,
rich and populous country where Ko
manism has flourished for ages. In
former times the natives swam and
bathed in the bay with impunity. It
is not so at present : the sharks now
render such aquatic sports quite peril
ous. Three years ago some boatman
threw a quantity of raw cow skins
overboard; they sank to the bottom,
and as they decayed, the sharks came
in to feed on them Since that period
a number of the natives have been
dismembered or destroyed by them."
The people of the United States
have not very high ideas with regard
to the Mexicans as a nation, and are
not in the habit of expressing any
elevated opinions of them either as a
race or a government, though nearly
every one was in favor of their ex
trication from the French-Austrian
dominion of the Emperor w ho was
forced upon them by the aid of fore
icrn bayonets. Even President John
son, whom the democrats now consid
er to be immaculate, -particularly in
all tilings 2iertuining to the constitu
tion, made a speech soon after he was
nominated for the Vice Presidency
in 1801, demanding the immediate ex
pulsion of Maximillian from Mexico.
Such a declaration, in the then state
of American relations with France,
and with the terrible war of the re
bellion on our hands, might have
been considered impolitic and even
ridiculous in any other person, but it
was what might have been expected
from Johnson, had the people c f the
United States known him at the time
as well as they do now. Tho Mexi
cans, if they could free themselves
from their partisanship for worthless
and unprincipled military adventur
ers, and were free from the reaction
ary spirit of priests and others who
ore coutinually looking fur a monar
chy as the only proper order of gov
ernment, would bo quite a respectable
nation. Their labors ar.d sacrifices
in re-establishing their republic are
worthy of much praise. Most of the
information which we receive from
the country comes from Havana, and
our people might as well expect jus
tice from tho British as the Mexicans
can look for fair play from the Spani
ards with respect to the workings of
their government. The Mexican Re
public has progressed much further
on the road to peace and prosperity
than Havana Imperial telegrams
would have the world believe.
There are some able statesmen in
Mexico, and Mr, Ilomcro, the late
Minister to the United States, and
now Minister of Finance under
Juarez, is one of them. He has re
cently submitted the outline of a plan
of finance for the consideration of the
Mexican Congress, which is very high
ly commended. He starts wilh the
declaration that there are two condi
tions indispensable to the success of
any plan : Public tranquility and the
enforcement of the laws relating to
finance throughout the national ter
ritory. Local authorities have been
in the habit of appropriating federal
revenues to local uses. Mexico must
depend on her own resources, and
thus she can not only meet all expen
ses but become a rich nation. She
is voif just risirkg from an exhaustive
war, and yet her financial condition is
morejpromising than at any time since
the establishment of the republic,
The government expenses are $1,

and civilians in the service are punc
tually paid, a thing unknown before

mate creditors." the government re
fusing to recognize the claims which
the Emperor of the French sought to
impose upon the Mexicans. With
such prospects Mexico should thrive.

A correspondent gives us accounts
of a Democratic club at Marquams
which was not organized about as
follows, and for reasons thus :
Ed. ExTKRpmsK :
Bent. Killin, I. W. Garrett, my
self and others, attended the "demo-
at Marquams pres
cinct last Saturday, to hear the great
apostate D. W. McKinney, and Mr.
Myers led out, and I must say his
speech was the dry est most lifeless
harrangue I ever heard and did not
contain one single argument. Gar
rett followed him for a few minutes,
confming himself to a simple review
of his speech, and finally asked Mc
Kinney to define the position of the
democratic party on the political is
sues of the day.
McKinney then came forward aud

to tho Herald, and scarcely left the
text, except to answer the questions,
which he did in this way :
To the question whether he belicv-
ea the rebel state governments re
mained intact during the war he did
not reply, at all.
To the question "What is your
plan for the reconstruction of the re
bel states? he replied : The demo
crats are not in power, and can not
do anything, " and," said he, " though
I do not pretend to speak for the par
ty, I am in favor of colonizing them."
He certainly has nigger on the
Killin gave him just such a casti
gation as lie deserved, and I predict
that Mc. will not want Bent, to fol

were so much disgusted that they
nearly " all went out one by one."

was called, aud it was not organized
at all. There were about 15 or 20

In Clackamas County.
Ed. Enterprise :
Knowing that your readers would like
to hear of the renowned Calchas, and the
little man void of principles, that was a
candidate for Sheriff, before the Republi
can Convention, but failed for want of
votes, and who waked up next morning to
find hiinvelf hugely democratic, and the
man of two aud a half notoriefv. I fell
it my duty m the absence ot a more
worthy chronicler to give a faithful ac
count of the savings and doincrs of these
great and efficient stumpers, who visited
our School house on Friday, for the pur
pose of addressing the democratic club.
and ventilaling their ideas. Well, with
out farther remarks I will proceed, lm
mediately after their arrival the man of
two and a half notoriety took the school
teacher to one side to instruct him how
to proceed, (as his countenance indicated
a greater degree of intelligence than any
other member of the democratic club
present,) in bringing Calchas the renown
ed, before his audience in a style befitting
his magnitude. The school teacher ac
cording to instructions made u motion that
the president take the chair, which he im
mediately did leaning on the arm of re
pentant Calchas. Calchas then, in an un
dertone, instructed the president how to
perform his part of the programme.
All things were now set. Tho eager
listeners with ears erect, extended eyes
and suppressed breathing awaited the
commencement of thundering tones of
eloquence, and invincible argument, that
must ominatc from such towering magni
tude. Expedition was on tip-toe for wilh
such a spread, considering this great, flow
er of democracy in the rostrum, drinking
the rich cream of democracy was every
day fare compared to it. At this crisis he
of the two and a half cried. Hold ! there
are ladies coining. This interruption was
of short duration, the ladies were seated
and nothing more to stay proceedings.
Simultaneous the renowned Calchas aud
Mr. president- arose, eyeing each other
closely, Calchas telegraphing with his eyes
for Mr. president to introduce him accord
ing to former instructions. Mr. president
finally, but gradualy, came to a little,
and commenced giving, the renowned a
formal introduction but had forgotten the
name. ' This is the Jievcrend Mr. Junstryl"
said he. I do not know whether this was a
mistake made by the President ; or, that
the Rev. Kinslry was his real cognomen ;
at any rale, if it was a mistake, it was not
rectified, and some settled on the opinion
that he had been a preacher, and th it his
name was Kinstry, and that since lis re
form he wished to assume the Rev. in order
to give tone. Now the ball opens, Cal
chas new in the faith stands erect alone
upon the stage before tho expectant audi
ence, he makes a bow, and says : Mr. Pres
ident and fellow citizens, when a man
leaves one party, and attaches himself to
another, it is his duty to state his reasons
for so doing. He then commenced empty
ing his capacious saddle-bags, which held
about a half bushel, composed of IferaTds,
Daybooks Old Guards, and probably a
I will condense his reas;ons for leaving
the Union party. It was, from what I
could gather from his abstracted and dis
tracted method of expressing himself,
principally owing to '; Negro equality,-""
-Negro suffrage."7 'Buck Nigger,"' "Nig
ger Wench."' "Nigger on the wood pile.'"
Ac Ac, until he proved clearly to my mind
that he was laboring under hallucination
of the brain, or a violent attack of nigger.
But most of his speaking consisted of read
ings from his so called documents. He fi
nally made a puerile attempt at the bond
question.(tiresome all through), and sang
most of his audience to sleep no one as
yet having applauded , no demonstration of
approbation as yet had he received, so he
changed his base in order to bring down
the Louse,"and determined to snorl himself
into a rage, so he assumed a tragical atti
tude and cried' if I live to the first day
of June. I will vote the democratic ticket,
so help me God."' This caused some ap
plause amid which Calchas, the renowned,
took his seat.
Two 50-100 took the stand and stated
that he did not expect to speak; that he
never made a political speech in his life ;
during which he was unloading his pock
ets of documents, clippings, SLc. which
proved that he had expected t speak. I
concurred with the gentleman that he had
come unprepared. I knew that he had
fried to prepare, and had an abundance of
Democratic literature, but nature had fur
nished his upper story parsimoniously,
Democratic fashion, and where little Is
given, little is required."
The little man void of principle was
called. He stated he had renounced his
former faith, and had espoused the demo
cratic canFC. His reasons were the same
as those of Calchas. Ho did not come 1o
speak, but he would lie heard from at the
prope;- time. So the meeiing adjourned.

remedy for the cure of Consumption, and
all Diseases of the Lungs. It causes the
phlegm and matter to rise without irritating
those delicate organs (the Luns, ) and with
out producing constipation of the bowels.
It also gives strength to the system, stops
night sweats, and changes all the morbid
secretions to a healthy state. It contains no
opium in any form. It is perfectly harmless
for the most delicate child. It is everywhere
in good demand and gives goorf satisiaction.
The result of its use is proof of its great
value. Its extraordinary healing properties
are experienced by ail who uee it. Their
testimoncy will be found in a pamphlet,

Paix is snpposcd to be the lot of
us poor mortals as inevitable as death, and
liable at any time to come upon us. There
fore it is important that remedial agents
should be at hand to be used on any emer
gency, when we are made to feel the ex
cruciating agonies of pain, or the depress
ing influence of disease. Such a remedial
agent exists in the "Pain Kiiler," the fame
of which has extended over all the earth.
Amid the eternal ues of the Polar region, or
beneath the burning sail of the tropics,' its
virtues are known and appreciated. 1 he ef
fect of the Pain Killer upon the patient, when
taken internally in eases of colds, coughs,
bowel complaints, cholera, dysentery, an oth
er affections of the system, has been truly
wonderful, and has won for it a name amoncr
medical preparations that can neve- be for
gotten. Its success in removing pain, as an
external remedy, in cases of burns, bruises
sores, sprains, cuts, sting of insects, and
other causes of suScring, has secured for it
the most prominent position anion"- the
medicines of the day. Bewai e of coun
tcrfeits and worthless imitations. Call for
Perry Davis' Vegetable "Pain Killer," and
take none other. Sold bv all dregm-sU
