A JUEMOC11ATIC TRIUMPH
AVIIAT IS ITi
The so-called Democratic party of
Oregon has carried the election in n
majority of the counties in the State.
Jo. Smith is elected to Congress, and
our State Legislature is largely
Democratic 1 3 there a man in Ore
gon, or any where else, who can tell
us what this triumph means? Do
those Union men who have assisted
in bringing about the " defeat of the
Union party, know what they have
been in favor of? Has any Demo
cratic speaker, or writer, told the peo
ple what they propose to do? Is there
anything in the platform of the party
in this State which indicates an affir
mative policy on any of the real is
sues now before the people? In
short, do the people really know what
modern Democracy is ?
Democratic speakers raid writers
have not hesitated to tell the people
that they are opposed to " negro
equality," " negro suffrage," and a
" bonded aristocracy," but they have
not told them how they propose to
avert this long catalogue of imagina
ry evils. We believe that thousands
of men in Oregon have voted the
Democratic ticket, under the impres
sion that they were simply voting
Rgainst certain abuses, and temporal
ry errors of the Union party. The
statement has been made and con-;
stantly adhered to, by Democratic1
leaders that the Union party is com.
milted in favor of negro suffrage in
all the States, and some Union men
have been induced to believe it and
have voted with the Democracy"
to avert the imaginary terrors of ne
erro suffrage. The ; Democracy"
have acted upon the plan suggested
in the Albany Democrat that a "lie
well told, and constantly adhered to,
is as good as the truth,"., and the re
sult of the election seems to justify
The magical name of" Democracy"
has been used to collect together ev
cry dement of opposition under the
war cry of " nigger" and " bonds!"
But let us see if we can ascertain
what is ttie controlling element of the
Democratic party. If we can, we
vill be able to form some idea of its
affirmative policy. The controlling
idea of the party was frankly related
by Mr. II. W. Vaughn, a Democrat
ic candidate for the Legislature, in
one of his speeches in the late can.
vass in this county. When pressed
for an exposition of the affirmative
policy of the Democratic party, he
" I will tell you what wo propose
to do. We propose to turn nil re
publicans out of office, and put Dem
ocrats in their places !''
In this statement we find an ad
mission that the controlling idea of
the Democratic party is a determina
tion to get into office. The truth is
the species are hungry, and the desire
for office is the "ruling passion, strong
But if we will carefully study the
history of the Democratic party du
ring the last seven years, and find out
who are its pi t sent recognized lea
dcrs, we shall find that the control-
ing element of the party is made up
of that class of men who either open
ly favored secession, or secretly con
nived at it, who opposed coercion,
used every effort to make the war
what they declared it to be a fail
ure, who rejoiced at our defeats,
and mourned over our triumphs, who
laughed at our calamities, and
sneered at our success. We shall
find that its organization is control
led by secessionists ; and every man
who has voted the Democratic ticket,
has cast a vote which is interpreted
to mean an endorsement of all the
party has done, as well as all it has
refused to do.
The leaders of the party know that
the uegro equality war cry is all a
humbug, used merely to secure votes,
and put Democrats in office. Their
object is to roll back the tide of civ
iliz ition as much as possible. They
have opposed every step, and will
undo all wc have done, so far as it
shall be in their power. There can
be no doubt that the ultimate object
of Democratic leaders, is the restora
tion of slavery, and the repudiation
of the national debt.
In this county, those objects were
very poorly disguised. They sigh
for the good old days when the froth
ing hound was on the fugitive's track;
when girls with blue eyes, and flaxen
hair, in whose veins there yet linger
ed the slightest trace of African blood,
were sold at the auction block to the
To accomplish these objects they

The Record of Monday, says:
The whole of .Friday was occupied
by Judge Boise at Chambers in hear
ing the argument of Messrs Gibbs,
Hill and Whitson, cn the application
of which we made mention Saturday,
ostensibly on the part of the State of
Oregon, but really on the part of the
west side Railroad Company, for
leave to bring an action in the nature
of a quo warranto against tho Oregon
Central Hail road Company. The
argument on the part of the Company
was to commence Saturday morning.
When the court then came together,
however, the proceedings was termin.
ated rather abruptly by the presenta
tion of an affidavit by Mr. Mitchell
showing that the same questions were
now under consideration by Judge
Upton in a case pending before him.
Judge Boise thereupon declined to
giant leave to bring another action
while one involving the same ques
tions was pending in another court.
So Mr. Gaston goes out of court
again. It is unfortunate that any
great public enterprise should be em
barrassed end annoyed by a series of
petty law suits such as have been in
augurated during the past year
against the Oregon Central Hail
road Company. The public who are
deeply interested will be relieved to
know that they have all proved
harmless. The great enterprise is
still progressing. About one hun
dred aDd sixty men are at work, and

to the enemies of the road, but thev

ties and rails, including a piece of
heavy trestle work near Milwaukie,
COO feet in length. About 150 men
are kept constantly at work. A
first class saw-mill is being construct
ed cn the route, about two miles
from Portland, on the land of Mr.
Tibbetts. Logs to make half a
million feet of lumber are already
cut nearby it. In the same vicinity,
the contractors have erected a car
shop, 140 feet long by 3G wide; also
a machine shop 30 by GO, in which
there are already planers, saws, etc.,
for all kinds of wood work. The
machine &hop for the manufacture ot
iron work is not yet built, but
the Compauy has, probably, a much
better machine shop coming than any
at present in Oregon. The in
terest felt by the people of this valley
in the enterprise is quite satisfactory
to the Company. Now that the ex
citement of the election is over, the
matter will be thoroughly presented
to all the counties on the line of the
road. Friday morning Mr. Burrage,
civil engineer, with a surveying party,
commenced the location of the road
from Salem, up Mill creek, towards
Jefferson. The intention is to estab

as soon as possible, and complete the
grading as fast as possible.
The Roscburg Ensign says:
The internal wealth of our State is
fast developing itself into a degree of
magnitude that will in but a short
time, compare favorably with any
State in the Union. Not only are
almost all kinds of manufacturing es
tablishments in successful operation
in our vallies, but the mountains too,
are turning in their share of the in
creased productions, in the rich ore
and placer nuggets. Bohemia is
opening out with good prospects of
as rich a yield as even its n.ost san
guine claim-holders had anticipated;
there is already, and will continue to
be a great rush for that locality; and
nr dvubt many a " poor laborer"
! will grow licit from its auriferous
j production. There is now being
shipped from this place, for that
j camp a largo Mitk of goods; Mr. C.
i W. Fitch will soon have open a
conveyancer and recordvrs office, in
j which he will be prepared to transact
all business which the miners of the
district may stand in need of having
done; their laws and regulations will
j be enacted as soon as a sufficient
! number of officers can be present;
and lhe work generally is being com
menced in real earnest and we enter
tain no doubts about the woiking of
these mines, proving a great acces
sion to the interests of our vallies in
creating and maintaing a business
which has hitherto been carried on in
a district almost exclusively out of
our reach and consequently benefit
ing us but little.
