MOST COWAKDLY OF CUIMES
Assassination is fast becoming an
unpleasant incident of American poli
tics. We cannot avoid the fact.
Within otdy three years the Chief
Magistrate of our nation, a distin
guished member of the House of
Commons of the new Domiuioo, and
hosts of Southern loyalists have paid
with their lives the privilege of as
serting their principles, and as yet
it is omnious to think but in one
case, perhaps, has there been any pun
ishment meted out for this most cow
ardly of crimes. As in the case of
rebellion the attempted assassinas
tion of liberty the great criminals
go unhung. History teaches us that
great crimes afflict a land all at once
at. some one epoch, and certain it is
that treason and political murder in
our time have grown up together and
gone hand in hand. To complete
the fearful trio, usurpation rears its
horrid front, and there arc not want
ing those who endeavor to shield even
it. The general safety of American
civilization would seem now to re
quire their prompt repression of crime
at whatever cost. Jefferson Davis ;
the assassins of D'Arcy M'Gee ; all

Tualatin, June 18th 156S.
A letter from Oregon City in the
weekly Herald of ! to-day under the
signature of" Calchas" refers'.in part
to the manner in which the election
in this place was conducted7 Whoev
er this titled ignoramus may be, is
not generally known here ; but the
letter evidently bears the ear-marks
of a disappointed office seeker who
deserted the Republican parly be
tween two days (the 7th and 8th of
March) on account of a failure in get
tiug the nomination for the office of
, and who is no loss to the
party and but little gain to the cop

is scarce worth considering, and were
it not that he attempts to villify the

self personally, I would not conde

ly attacks upon the judges of election
throughout this county ; and I sup
pose his statements in regard to the
several precincts contains just as
much truth as wherein he refers to
this ; and that is just none al all.
I am charged with having been allow
ed to vote having been but two
months in the State. I came to Ore
gon in August 18G3 and have never
been out of the State six consecutive
months since ; neither have 1 ever
been out of Clackamas county ninety
consecutive days since October 1868,
and yet I " was allowed to vote for
the only reason that I voted a good
Union ticket." Now I will just re
verse the following sentence : Had I
been a Democrat no one would ever
have questioned my right to vote.
Democrats would allow negroes, in.
dians and chinamen to vote, provided
such votes would sustain their party
in power. But we can and must yet
redeem Oregon from the thralldom
of copperhcadism, and next Novem
ber the Democratic party will follow

been identified for the last six years.
J. C. LONGWELL.
In reply to the letter announcing
his nomination at Chicago, General
Grant says :
In formally accepting the nomina
tion of the National Union Republi
can Convention of the 21st, it seems
proper that some statement of my
views, beyond the mere acceptance
of the nomination, should be express
ed. The proceedings of the Conven
tion were marked with wisdom, mod
eration and patriotism, and I believe
express the feelings and greatness of
those who sustained the country
through its trials. I endorse the res
olutions. If elected to the office of
President of the United States, it will
be my endeavor to administer all
laws in good faith and with economy,
and with a view to giving peace, quiet
and protection everwhere. In times
like the present it is impossible and
improper to lay down a policy, to be
adhered to right or wrong, through
an administration of four years.
New political issues, not forseen, are
constantly arising. The views of
the public are constantly changing.
Purely adminiitrative officers should
always be left to execute the will of
the people, which I have always re
spected and always shall. Peace
and universal prosperity, its se
quence, with economy of administra
tion, will lighten the burden of taxa
tion, while it constantly reduces the
natioual debt. Let us have peace.
Deseret News, of Salt Lnke City,
says that the delays in the overland
mail route were caused by storms.
We think Indian storms. Unless the
government remove their cornrais
sioners, and send out. soldiers, such
storms will occur in future quite too
often. The Helena Gazette says :
The " gayest fun" the " red rovers"
have had, was the habit of running
into the forts every few weeks to
talk peace and become friendly, thus
obtain plenty amunition and fire and
lightning whiskey." , As soon as they
could posess themselves of all they
wanted, they would throw aside the
peace talk and institute the rifle and
bow in place of the peace pipe. Now
that the upper posts are to be aband
oned, our Lo neighbors will come ov

Hamilton Boyd was elected

business qualifications, and if he rules
independently of partizan ties will
make a good Mayor. Wa are sorry

We have just returned from a vis
it among some friends in Yamhill
county ; and, reader, we are slight
ly exhausted not because wo found
the trip tedious, for we were so hand
somely treated, and passed the time
so pleasantly that we have ouly thanks
to tender for those attentions, but
weary because we are not accustom
ed to such episodes ! The daily rou
tine of a publisher's life, especially
when he is Editor and devil also ;
is anything but pleasurable; hence
we were " out of our sphere'' of ac
tion on this trip, and felt weary when
we arrived homo. We gathered a
oreat variety of good ideas on the ex
cursion ; new ones to us; and shall
be benefitted by them in future.
Yamhill is truly tha garden spot of
Oregon. It was formerly a saying
with reference to a special locality in
New England, that they built school
houses there, and raised men ! Yam
hill county is not yet sufficiently aged
to boast of many men which she has
reared, but it is a little striking that
there are a great many efficient men
in Oregon, and some few that we
know of outside cf the State, who
honor Yamhill for what she has done
for them. The attractiveness of home
is too often lost in a materialsm which
culminates in dusty streets, tree
less yards, and ill fashioned habi
tations. In matters of rural taste
and home adorning, however, Yam
hill county lacks none of those essen
tials to make home attractive, so far
as our observation enables us to say
at present. It is true that Oreeon
farms, as a general thing; illustrate
good taste, and serve everywhere to
remind us of how much more might
be done, had we the people, iospired
to fill more of those wastes wonder
fully attractive in their own physical
features. Nature is profuse iu her
ministrations, and rural adorning
can never be accomplihed with more
ease, and with a smaller necessary
expenditure, than here in Oregon.
But we aimed to say a word in this
with special reference to Yamhill
county. Her area is equal to a good
large sized middle State, while her
population is scarcely equal to an or'
dinary county in Ohio or Indiana.
At the late election 1208 votes were
cast for Congressman, and to her cred
it be it said Gi l of those were for
Hon. David Logan. Ia 1SGI the
vote of Yamhill county was S3 4 ; and,
in 1SGG, 1128 so- it will be seen
that she has a fair increase. The
soil of Yamhill county is excellent, j
We were shown fulison the farm of
Col. Cris. Taylor, lately purchased of
Gen. Joel Palmer, which have been
cultivated every year but one since
ISIS, and which even now produce
astonishing crops. Gen. Palmer has
raised GO bushels of wheat to the
acre, year after year, on a portion of
this iand. The land is rolling, and
farms are cultivated with less difli.
culty than on flat lands. Timber
groves are interspersed with prairie
lands, affording ample facilities for
building and fencing. At all times
the farmer of Yamhill county has as
ready means of transportation as oth
er river counties, and at certain sea
sons shipping is more ready. We
have no statistical information re
specting the amount of grain raised
in Yamhill county, but have been in
formed that 100,000 bushels at least,
have been shipped since last harvest
from Dayton, LayfayetteTand McMin.
ville, the principal depots on the river,
and more remains in store. As good
farming lands as can be found in the
Western States, with valuable im
provements thereon, recently sold in
Yamhill county at $20 00 per acre.
One farm, of a full section, was re
ferred to us at $10 00 per acre well
improved, and a body of valuable
land, embracing some 2,000 acres
was placed at a nominal sum, in our
estimation, for any one who really
wishes desirable property. The pco
pie of Yamhill county can boast of
their schools, we feel certain, from
the appearance of the school-houses;
they havealso, a Court House, which
is really a creditable building. It
needs some repairs however, to make
it pleasant. This is situated at La
fayette. We found the Clerk ex.
and elect Mr. Adams and Mr. Red
ding, both " at home," seemingly
happy over the " result" in Yamhill
county but not so pleasant in regard
to the State at large. We visited
the Courier office, a dingy looking
place, ia entire keeping with the ap
pearauce cf the sheet issued from it
ouce a week. Mr Johnson was not
" at home:' Dayton is a lively lit
tle burg. There is considerable man
ufacturing carried on at this place.

pleted by Messrs.-Walter & Co., on

clude, in this article, more than a
portion of the additions to our record
of Oregon, made on this trip to Yam
hiil county. The reserve we shall
endeavor to make useful from time to
time in the fature.
