grirwhich we, in common with nil
true lovers of our country feel at the
result; yet it is some consolation to
know tbat our own county is not lost.
"We have carried the county by an av
erage of abont twenty five, and have
only lost the Sheriff, Treasurer, and
one county commissioner, and they
might have been saved with proper
effort on the part of Union men.
We restecHn fancied security, and
did not take measures to meet the
baseless fabrications of the copper,

success, an3 left no stone unturned to
From the manner in which our
county canvass was conducted it is
evident that they expected to carry,
every thing by storm. ;In- nearly
every precinct they made arrange
ments to have a crowd of Joneses',
present from other precincts, and the
result was that they always had a
body guard, many of whom were
armed with knives aud pistols, and
inspired with whiskey, while Union
men generally remained at home.
It is evident that this was the plan
of the campaign, but we are gratified
to know that our candidates met this
terrorism heroically, , and sustained
themselves, and the principles they
ondvocated successfully, and that near
ly all of them are rewarded with a

constitutional right of coercion. Car

Constitution of his State in opposi

learn that Mr. Logan is meeting his
defeat like a philosopher, and is quiet

to make up for lost time. We are
proud of our standard-bearer, and
only rogret that we had not votes
enough to elect him. But in the
language of Mr Lincoln " when two
men ride one horse, one of them
must ride behind."
The Union press that have come
to hand since the nominations made
by the Chicago Convention were an
nounced, have, but one voice in refer
ence thereto, and that is in praise of
the ticket. Never, save in the re
nomination of Lincoln-, did a Nation
al ticket during the past thirty years
give such universal satisfaction as
this. Not one word of complaint
from any quarter, but hope and joy
The Difference. The Demo
cratic organs frequently ask, why do
you try to impeach Andy Johnson?
You elected him to the position he
now occupies, and he is now indentified
with your part ; why impeach him?
We simply answer that the Repub
lican party do cot uphold their ofli
cers right or wrong. If right they
are able to protect them; if wrong
they give them a. hearing, and if ne
cessary oust them from office, which
the Democracy are never guilty of,
but uphold their men under all cir
cumstances. If an officer embezzles,
they help him out of the clutches of
justice. According to their general
rule they may well ask, why did you
try to impeach Andy Jobasou?
In his recent speech at Charles
ton, according to the News'1 report,
Hon. Mr. Ashley said that it was
perfectly well known that if any but
a Southern man had been Vice Pres.
ident, President Lincoln Would not
have been assassinated. These Cons
federate murderers will not be urged
for a like reason to assaosinate
Grant. The late Convention did not
set a price on the chieftan's head, but
on the contrary placed on the ticket
with him a man whom they will not
desire to see occupy the Presidential
chair. To them Colfax would bo no
improvement on Grant, hence it is
safe to say that Grant will be per
mitted to live.
Speaking of the nomination of
Grant and Colfax the Sacramento
Record says : ?
Grant did not covet a crown and
thrice refuse it, bat he bowed to a
decision of an earnest and patriotic
gathering, representing all points of
the soil over which the Stars and
Stripes reign. Graut is of the peo
ple. He is not the sudden favorite
of a revolution, but the chosen of
well weighed intellectual considera
tion ; he is not the created idol of
heated excitement, but the preference
of deliberations. Filling in the days
of the rebellion a most dangerous
post, he displayed those qualities of
durable virtue which are the pillars
to future greatness.. In military de
velopment there was that solidity
which scorns the aid of brilliancy,
and in his views of the civil situation
of national affairs his mind challen
ges the respect of experienced states
men. In his nomination and accep
tance there is a mutual confidence
expressed never before displayed by j
a political action in America. But
our admiration for our nominee is
I enlarged by associations., The choice
ol bchuyler Colfax and the adoption
of the platform presented are no less
acceptable to the great Union Repub
lican party of America. That the
whole proceedings will be indorsed
by the popular vote of the people in
November, we cannot doubt, and
that the result wilLba. the means of
again restoring our country; to peace,
grandeur and prosperity, is more
than evident. ; .

Peter Donahue who is largly in
tcrested in the San Jose Railroad,

ficers of the Grant and Colfax ratifi
cation meeting held in San Francisco.
It is also said that quite a number of
gentlemen heretofore reckoned with
the Democracy acted as Vice Pres-
dents! Donahue has always been
considered a Democrat: he took
much interest in the success of Mr.
Casscrly in the last Senatorial cam-1
paign, but that, however, was no in
dication of his Democracy, for many
of the strongest Republicans in the
State were triendly to Casserly.
It is painful to read the accounts
that reach us from the old world of
the famine raging there. Ia Algeria
rty thousand men, women, and
children have perished by starvation,
and in many cases the survivors
have eaten the dead bodies. In
India, at points' distant from the
centres of supply, w hole villages have
been depopulated.. In Russia ten
per cent of the poulation of nineteen
provinces have died of want and suf
fering. In Sweden, villages have
been found where all the inhabitants
lay dead of want, none being left to
bury them. In Italy thousands try to
sustain themselves by feeding on grass
and moss. The suffering seems to
be severest in the countries that have
so long been the granaries of Europe,
and the reason is that last year's
crtp was short.

A new map of this State, Washington,
Idaho, and a part of Montana has just been
completed by Col. Belden, C. 11, for II.
W. Rappleye, Esq., of Portland. As the
scale of the map is twelve miles to the
inch, every geographical feature of impor
tance is clearly defined. It is four feet by
six feet in size. It will be printed in col
ors, in the finest style of copper-plate en
graving, on the best quality of paper, and
mounted on canvass and rollers. Those
who have seen the copy pronounce it
vastly superior to any hitherto published,
so far as Oregon is concerned, and it is
fair to presume that it is so in relation to
similar features of the territories named.
The counties are accurately defined and
colored. The delineations of the sea coast
and the coast ranges of mountains are
very accurate, and altogether, we have
no hesitation in pronouncing the map the
best ever published or designed. Sub
scriptions will be received by Mr. Rap
pleye, till the first of July, aud the map
will be pri ited and ready for delivery by
the first of January next. For a few days,
the copy will be on exibition at the bank
ing house of Ladd & Tilton, says the Ore'
A White Man's Goveunment. Since
the election in this city-, we have seen
many of the outcroppings of "A white
man's government." Excited men, reek
ing with whiskey and tobacco, have reeled
to and fro, abusing Union citizens, and
shouting for " a white man's government F'
Pandemonium has belched forth it3 vota
ries, and Democracy is triumphant. Let
Union men stand by their colors. We are
rigid, and will ultimately be successful:
" Truth crushed to earth shall rise again,
The eternal years of God are hers;
But error wounded, writhes with pain
And dies amid its worshippers.7'
Last Wednesday the news was re
ceived in ihis city, that James Buchanan
was dead. The occasion was siezed by
the Democracy to display a flag at half
mast; and it is a little singular that this is
the first instance since Fort Sumter fell,
that they have displayed a national banner.
The flag is one owned by the Union peo
ple here, and wa3 borrowed by the De
mocracy for the occasion, and it is not
probable that they will display another
banner until Jeff. Davis is hung, when it
will be displayed again at half-mast, pro
vided the Union people will lend it to them
for such a purpose.

ADOPTED BY TUB XATIOXAL UNION' CONVENTION
Resolved, 1st. That -we congratulate the
country on the assured success of the Re
construction Policy of Congress as evi
denced by the adoption in a majority of
States lately in rebellion, of Constitutions
securing equal, civil and political rights to
all, and we regard itias Ihe duty of the
government to sustain these Constitutions,
and prevent the people of such States
from being remitted to a state of auarchy
or military rule.
2d. The guarantee by Congress of
equal-suffrage to all loyal men in the
South, was demanded by every considera
tion of public safety, gratitude and justice;
and must be maintained ; while the ques
tion of suffrage in all loyal Slates proper
ly belongs to the people of those States.
3d. We denounce all forms of repudi
ation as a natural crime, and national hon
or requires the payment of the public in
debtedness iu the uiirost good faith to our
creditors at home and abroad, not only
according to the letter, but spirit of the
laws under which it was contracted.
1th. It is due to the labor of the nation
that taxation liould be equalized and re
duced as rapidly as the national faith will
5th The national debt, contracted as it
had been for preservation of th" Union
for all time to conic, should be extended
over a fair period, and it is our duty to
reduce the rate of interest thereon when
ever it can honestly be done.
0th. .That the best policy to diminish
our burden of debt is so to improve our
credit, that capitalists will seek to lend
money at lower rates of interest than we
now pay and must continue to pay so long
as repudiation, parti il or total, open or
covert, is threatened or suspected.
7th. The Government of (he United
States should be administered with the
strictest economy. The corruptions which
have been so shamefully nursed and fos
tered by Andrew Johnson, call loudly for
Silu We profoundly deplore the un
timely and tragic death of Abraham Lin
coln, and regret the succession of Andrew
Johnson to the Presidential chair, who has
acted treacherously to the people who
elected him and the cause he was pledged
to support, who has usurped high legisla
tive and judicial functions, has refused to
execute the laws, has used his high office
to induce other officers to violate the laws,
has employed his Executive power to ren
der insecure the lives, property, peace and
liberty of citizen?, has abused the pardon
ing power, has denounced the National
Legislature as unconstitutional, has per
sistently and habitually resisted by every
means in his power, every attempt at the
reconstruction of the States lately in rebel
lion, has perverted public patronage into
an engine for wholesale corruption, has
justly been impeached for high crimes and
misdemeanors, aud has been pronounced
guilty thereof by the votes of 25 Senators.
Dili. The doctrine of Great Pritian and
other European powers that, because a
man is once a subject he is alwaysjso,
must be resisted at every hazard by the
United States as a relic of feudal limes not
authorized by the law of nations and at
war with our national honor and inde
pendence. Naturalized citizens are en
titled to be protected in all their lights of
citizenship as though they were native
born. No citizen ot the United States or
naturalized must be liable to arrest or im
prisonment by any foreign power for acts
done or words spoken in this country and
if so arrested and imprisoned, it is the
dutv of the Government to interfere in his
10th. Of all who were faithful in the
trials of the late war. there were none
more faithful for special honor than brave
soldiers and seamen who endured hard
ships of camp and cruize and imperiled
their lives in the service of the'u- country.
The bounties and pensions appropriated
by law for these brave defenders of the
Union, are obligations never to be forgot
ten. - Applause. The widows nnd or
phans of the gallant dead are wards of the
people, a sacred legacy bequeathed to the
United States for protecting care.
11th. Foreign immigration in the past
has added so much to the wealth and in
creased resources of this nation, the asylum
of all nations, that it should be fostered by
a liberal and just policy.
12th. This Convention declares its sym
pathy with all oppressed people who are
stniffsjlincr for their rights.
The following additional resolutions
were offered and adopted :
Resolved, That the adjournment of this
Convention shall not work dissolution of
the same, but it shall remain as organized,
subject to be called together at any time
or place that the Republican Executive
Committee shall designate.
Resoh-cd, We highly commend in a
spirit of magnanimity and forgiveness the
men who have served the rebellion and
who are now frankly and honestly co-operating
with us in restoring peace to the
country and in the reconstruction of
Southern States on the basis of impartial
justice and equal rights, and are received
back into the communion of loval people,
and that we are in favor of the "removal of
the disqualifications or restrictions imposed
011 the late rebels in the same measure as
the spirit of disloyalty disappears, as may
be consistent with the safety of loyal : peo
ple. Resolved. That we recognize the great
principles laid down in the Declaration of
Independence, as the true foundation of
Democratic government, and we hail with
gladness every effort towards making these
principles the living leulily 011 every inch
