It is true the days of conflict are
ended, but the warfare of opinion is

The copperhead Democracy cf
this county are making much noise
about high taxes, and assert that it
is needless Now everybody knows
that the increased levy this year was
owing to the purchase of bridges by
the county, so as to have the road
fnes to the puUic. And right here
permit us to say that the poliey of
purchasing bridges in order to make
them free, was inaugurated by D'on.
i3. Huelat, when he was tounty
Judge, and we understd he is a
bright and shining Vight among the
Democrats. And further it is true
that petition.! for the purchase of the
Cason and Wright bridges were
signed by a large number of the tax
payers of the county, including al
most all the leading and influential
Democrats. When you listen to the
harangues or the noisy demagogues
whoare Democratic candidates, would
yon believe that their names with
other leading Democrats were on
record asking the County Commmis
sioners to buy tLose very bridges.
Were they sincere when they asked
it? Or are they now denouncing
their own infamy.
But you cancot justly estimate the
financial policy of any party by look
ing at any one year alone. The only
fair way is to take a series of years
together and average them, aud con
sider what has been done during the
time. Let us do that:
The Republicans and Union men
have been in power in Clackamas
county eight years. The whole levy
of taxes, including 18GT, the bridge
year, for county purposes has been
51 mills or an average of G mills
for every year. This will be seen
from the following official table;
1863. . . .
Now let us turn to the last
years of Democratic rule and see how

Now consider that when the Union
men took charge in 1860, the Dem
ocrats had left the county in debt
about $3000, and that county scrip
was worth but from GO to 75 cents on
the dollar. And then remcmher that
all this indebtedness has been paid,
and that county orders are worth (heir
face in coin ut this date, and be as
tonished, if you can, that the average
of taxation has only been mill higher
under Union rule than under Demo
cralie. Democrats don't blow r.ny
more about taxes.
If there has ever happened a
more disreputable thing to sully
the fair fame of our City, than the
anonymous lies of Calchas, it has not
yet been divulged. A deliberate,
cold-blooded attempt has been made
to blast the reputation of some of out
oldest and most respectable citizens,
by wholesale falsehoods published
over an anonymous signature, in the
democratic organ. Scoundrtls iu
the Police Court, and sneaking liars
generally, are fond of this plan for
escaping personal responsibility, and
the exposure of their viliainy. Apos
tates, are sometimes known to use
this scandalous and cowardly weapon
against old friends. But a gentleman
never did, and never will, (unless
cowardly villainy comes to be a stan
dard manly accomplishment)emplcy
this shameful weapon.
It is a fit weapon for renegades
cowards and liars. It is a bad
cause which finds use for such min
ions iu its service. Truth needs no
such allies, and turns with contempt
from such aid. " Like master like
man!" is in this instance, significant,
ly illustrated. The ill paid service
of a sneaking, cowardly liar, is a
most fit auxiliary for copperhead
ism and modern democracy. This
convictc d liar, vouchsafes no opo.'ogy
when his lies are exposed, Lat laughs
the matter off with the effrontery of
a hardened sconudrel long past the
blush of shame, or sense of personal
infamy. One instance will do. The
case of Mr. Jesse. Calchas the liir,
says Mr.Burns bought Jesse's County
scrip for greenback?, and then bought
the greenbacks for coin. Jesse in
his card pi - noonces this an unmiti
gated lie with no word of truth in it
thatMr. Burns never tonght county
scrip of him for greenbacks or coin.
Well, does Calchas explain so far
he says if he had known Mr.Jesse was
& republican, he would have taken a
little more trouble to learn the fads or
to tell the truth. Tnat leaves the
plain inference that Calchas supposed
Jesse waf a Democrat, ergo he
would father any iie started for the
good of the lying cause. Then CaU
chas goes on to say, that if it was not
Win. P. Burns who bought the scrip,
it was John M. Baeon-or gome

that the route, with so few exceptions,

OKEGOX CENTRAL RAILROAD.
(From tho San Francisco Bulletin.)
Thero is every reason to believe
that Oregon is stirring with a new im
pulse. After a long period of dis
trust or indifference with reference to
the railroad project to traverse the
State from the Columbia river to the
California border, the Oregonians
seem at last to be convinced that the
building of the road has been under
taken in good faith by responsible
parties. We have from reliable
sources some facts on this subject
which are full of interest. On the
lGth of April, ground was formally
broken for the road on the east bank
of the Willamette, opposite Portland,
in the presence of several thousand
people, who displayed unusual en
thusiasm. The locality mentioned is
a fertile flat, partly covered with
strawberry vines. About one hun
dred ladies insisted on turning a bhov
el full of earth, and many of them
plucked strawberry vines to plant in
their gardens at home, in commem
moration cf the occasion. A more
practical evidence of the popularity
of the roud, is found in the fact that
the farmers along the route arc sub
scribing liberally to its stock. For
ten per cent, paid, the Company issue
unassessable stock, raising the bal
ance of money needed cn bonds.
Those who cannot pay money for
their stock, pay in land and produce.
Some farmers subscribe ten, fifty, and
one hundred acres each. Major
Glenn, of Jackson, in Rogue River
Valley, has subscribed half of his
tract of G O00 acres, to be conveyed
when the road reaches that region.
Many farmers who do not wish to
part with any of their land, are sub
scribing a certain quantity of grain
for a Cxed time.
The Company has contracted with
S. G. Elliott, who is said to be backed
by A. J. Cooke & Co., for the con
struction of 150 miles of road, to a
point 40 miles south of Eugene City,
at the head of the Willamette Valley.
This much of the work is to be done
in two years. Tho road will be in
operation to Oregon City, 13 miles
from Portland, by September 1st,
and to Salem, 50 miles from Port
land, by January next. Clackamas
county is a flourishing manufacturing
locality, where an unrivalled water
power exists, and where woolen, pa
per, ani iron manufactories, and flour
ing and saw mills arc already in ope
ration. Salem is the capital of the
State. The maximum grade of the
road for the 150 miles, will not reach
10 feet fr mile, and for a great por- j
tion of the ulstanc? ii will be nearly j
or quite level. Gradm is progress
t r O
ing at the rate of two q;:1cs per yveti.
The character of the countrv is verv
favorable to rapid grading, most of!
which can be done with plows and
teani3. The iron and rolling stock
for 50 miles have been purchased, as
heretofore stated in this paper, and
some of the craterial, including that
far two locomotives and several cars,
has already reached Portland. " A
workshop is now going up on the
east side, and an agent of the compa
ny now in this city, Mr. Loryea, has
purchased the machinery for two saw
mills to cut tks and other timber.
Some of the farmers along the route
are now engaged m
getting out ties
for the first section. A contract has
been let for the const ruction acrc ss J
the Willamette, a double-deck bridge
ISO feet long, to cost $250,000 and
to be done in one year. The bridge
is to be built at Portland, and the city
will be asked to meet a part of the
expense. Before its completion con
nection will be made with the first
section of the read by a ferry. The
road is to be of a substantial charac
ter. The track will be of 50-pound
iron, fi.,hbolt rail, like that on the
Central Pacific, which makes a solid
continuous track, and guage 4 feetS.V
inches. The company has lately
closed a contract with the same par
ties above named, to complete the
road to the California border a dis
tance of over 300 miles, within five
years, and hope in that time, if not
before, to meet tho track of a con
necting road from this State. An
agent of the company goes East on
the next steamer to purchase more
iron, and to meet the first interest
payments on the company's bonds.
The above statements, which are
made on good authority, arc highly
important to the material interests of
both Oregon and, California, and it is
to be hoped that the anticipations they
excite will i.ot be disappointed. The
farmers of Oregon who are represent
ed to be subscribing to the stock of
this road confidently, exhibit a degree
good sense and sagacity, which might
be imitated to advantage in this State,
where, by local subscriptions in mon
ey, land or produce, aided by bonds,
of good railroads can be built for the
accomodation of our valley districts,
at from $10,000 to $20,000 a mile.
The Oregon Central goes through the
heart of the Willamette valley, the
! granary and garden of the State, and,
if rightly managed, cannot but prove
a profitable enterprise to all con
cetned. Several capitalists of San
Francisco have taken a warm interest
in the work, and will help to push it
forward. They and others of this
city will find it to their advantage to
promote ra'lroi 1 enterprise i?i Cali

struction of the Southern States belongs

necessarily contracted to save the national
life and ought to be honestly paid, and we
condemn every scheme devised for the re
pudiation of the whole or any part of the
debt as disgraceful to the Republic and
unjust to its citizens, and that the propo
sition to pay in legal tender note3 those
debts contracted to be paid in specie, is
only a milder term for repudiation.

the full enjoyment of their rights as cit
izens of the United States, wherever and
under whatever color or pretence those

7. llesol'vd. That the foreign immigra

The Umatilli Press says,
prognostication cf " the event" that
is to turn Oregon over iuto the hands
of the Philistines :
"Marion county, heretofore largely
Republican, is expected to give a
large Democratic majority this year."
This reminds us of a little joke.
Doc. Loryea was once introduced to
our friend Stroud, when Stroud was
running on tho Democratic ticket for
the legislature in Marion county.
Loryea had not been informed ' that
Stroud was a Democrat, and prcsum
irg upon his good looks and intelli
gence said to Thim : " A nomination
in Marion is equivalent to an elec
tion !" After election Stroud met
Loryea and says ho : " Doc, you
are a smart man you told me that
a nomination was equivalent to an
election and I am beaten by more
than seven hundred votes." Doc's
explanation was satisfactory. No
sane person has the least idea that
Marion county will ever go Demo

Dr. IIostetter's Stomach Bit-
Tzns. The operation of this palatable rem
edy upon the stomach, liver and excretory
organs is singularly soothing smd conserva
tive. It regulates, recruits, and purifies
them. Dyspepsia in all its forms yields to
its control and invigorating properties, and
it is recommended to mothers, enfeebled bv
the cares and duties of maternity, as the
safest and best remedy they can probabl v
use. In all the crisis of female bfc it will be
found eminently useful, and elderly persons
will derive naieh more benefit from it than
from ordinary stimulants. Sold by the drug
ffis:s and dealers every where.
