A Jcsr Tribute. The New York
"World, a staunch Democratic paper,
t-peaks thus of Grant:
General Grant has taken out of
the hands of all critics the question
whether it belongs t him. He has
won his greatest triumph over the
ifiost frkillfui and accomplished gen
eral on the other side; over a general
who foiled him long enough to prove
bis great mastery of the art of war,
nd the completeness of whose de
teat is a testimony to Grant's genius
fcuch as a victory over any other gen..
t-ral of the Confederacy, or even an
earlier, victory over Lee himself,
could not have civen. Apply to
General Grant what test you will;
measure him by the magnitude of the
obstacles he has surmounted, by the
value ol the positions he has gained,
by the fart.e of the antagonist over
Whom he has triumphed, by the
nchievementa of his most illustrious
cO workers, by ilie sureness with
which be directs his indomitable en
ergy to the vital point which is the
kfy of a vast field of operations, or
by that supreme test of consummate
ability, the absolute completeness of
bis results, and he has vindicated bis
claim to stand next after Napoleon

und eutngton among the great sol.
tliers cf this century, if not on a level
with the latter.
Has it ever occurred to those Dem
ocfats who declare Grant is no gens

that Lee is"a great general? For il

Democracy and tlxo Constitution.
The hydra headod opposition,
which assumes to itself the talisman
name of Democracy, claima to be the
special guardian of the Constitution,
and clamors for the letter of the bond,
as Shylock did for his. With Phar.
isaic vigor they deny to that instru
ment any element of power not fa
miliar to their school, or brought into
exercise in a time of profound peace.
While insisting upon what no one
denies the paramount of the Con
stitution, they assume the right to
interpret it so as to destroy its vis
tality in time of great national peril.
Within the last five years they
hive plead the Constitution against
the maintenance of the Union force.
against the raising of arms, to put
down rebellion; against the arrest of
the aiders and abettors of treason;
against the issue of a national cur
rency; against the emancipation of
slave?; against the bestowal of civil
rights upon those whose only hope of
protection was in the National Con
gress; against every step which has
been designed to lead this nation from
die darkness of slavery to the light of
The policy of the Democratic,
party if indeed it has a policy
would have destroyed the Republic;
and yet with brazen effrontery it
steps up and claims some merit for
victories achieved in ppite of its op
position. It would be gratifying if
we could read in these things an in
dication that the Democratic party is
being educated by events. If we
could even hope that it is willing to
abandon its heresies, and accept the
situation as it is, there would be
something hopeful in it. But the
truth is we can only see in it a re
luctant acquiescence in results which
it has been powerless to prevent. It
lags upon the stage and ridicules
progress, but still is pressed onsvard.
State sovereignty, the right of se
cession, and the want of power in the
General Government to coerce a
State, have been rung abroad in the
name of the Constitution, and the din
is still in our ears; and now when
the Democratic parly comes forward
with hypocritical cant, and claims an
interest in triumphs achieved in spite
of its opposition, we do rot think its
professions will be believed. How can
that party reconcile its present
position with its farmer one? Has it
di.-covercd that the Republican party
has been nctincr according to the Con
stitution after all, or has it discovered
that it is necessary to abandon the
Constitution in order to regain power,
or has it determined to "steal the
livery of heaven to serve the devil
hV Does the platform of the Na
tional Convention answer this ques
tion. Gen. Grant has given the De
mocracy a great deal of trouble, from
first to last. Probably no man in
this nation has done so much to de
stroy the ' Ancient landmarks."

Add to these either Pennsylvania

Or Nevada, and the Republican ticket
is elected. Hence we cannot perceive
a probability of its defeat.
But the belt of central States, be
ginning with Connecticut, New York,
New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio,
to end with Indiana, will be stub
bornly contested. Our adversaries
must carry them all to win ; if they
lose cither of the three largest, or In
diana with either of the two smaller,
they are beaten. Hence we must ex
pect them to contest each of these
five States with the fury of despera
tion. If they do not carry Pennsyl
vania, Ohio, and Indiana in October
not a majority, but all of them
the fencemen will know that they are
beaten, and will all tumble over to
the Republican side. If they should
carry those three States in the pre
lhninary contest, they will expect to

them in November. We trust nay,
we know that our friends in each of
them will make due effort, in view of
the magnitude of the issue and the
just expectations of their compatriots
on everv side.
Last week a delegation of the Co
lilo Indians visited this city, and
passed through to Salem, returning
on Wednesday. The Record fur
nishes an account of their doings
while at the capital. It seems that
they visited the Penitentiary, and
found one of their tribe at work there,
expiating the gentlemanly crime of
horse stealing. They pretended a
very ingenious surprise at their dis
covery, but the Record suspects that
they knew of his whereabouts and
went there in hopes to ameliorate his
condition. They applied to Governor
Woods for executive clemency, but
the Governor concluded it was best
to let the aboriginee finish his appren
ticeship to the art of brickmaking.
The wa-wa is thus described :
Entering the Executive Chamber
they took seats. A rotund and portly
savage, who undoubtedly Is a big
gun, but did not claim to be a chief,
took the floor and discoursed in his
native dialect one of his compiny
translating into " Chinook '' The
portly tUlicum was eloquent, and his
gestures were elegant and striking.
They had come to see the white man's
country, and were delighted to find it
was a " hyas closh iilahee." The
earth had abundant products that the
siwash would delight to eat ; birds
filled the air ; horses, cattle and sheep
roamed over prairie and hillside.
Their country was no comparison,
and the white man had forgotten to
pay them for it. They had seen the
houses and lands of the " Bostons ;"
they had discovered they had good
"tumtums;" and their own "tumfnms''
were also in splendid tune toward us.
They had seen the Governor, and
they were glad. So the " orating"
red man paused in the midst of a
striking and poetic gesture, and sat
spell bound waiting for a reply.
Gov. Woods is an orator by nature;
he speaks well in the President's En
glish, but his command of Chinook
surpasses it. In glowing words of
that decidedly mixed dialect, he ac
knowledged the honor done him. He
confessed that we had a good coun
try and ' hyu ictas ;'' that we all
worked hard lor them and got them
that way, and in persuasive tones,
and with nice tact, he told them to do
lots of work and they would have
lots of "ie'as" also and every In
dian grunted assent. With a wave
of his hand, the Governor told the
braves they had the floor again.
The red man went back to by-gone
time, and said he knew this country
before we did him the honor to come
here he did indeed. He was glad
we had come he was indeed. It was
true tho w hite men had bought his
land, and it was rather a pity they
had forgotten to pay for it, and he
rather thought they had better have
kept the land and retailed it out on
their own hook. He recited, with
pathos, the white men's promises.
The hat's, caps and shoes, the coats,
vests and pants, calico and cotton
shirts, neckties, ribbons and gitns
cracks, the blarkets and bed-quilts
stipulated for, but not received. And
then, with remarkable complaisance
he insinuated that no doubt the Gov
ernor could give all these things, and
send a full buit to their ''tyee'' besides.
As a wind-up, the Governor sad
he was chief only of the " Boston
tillicums,'' but that he was glad to
see the brave red men from beyond
Celilo. Mr. Huntington was the
"siwash" Governor, and they knew
We have heard of aboriginal elo
qnnce, but we thought we realized
it as the old fellow recited the list of
dry goods due them from Uncle
Samuel. There was earnestness of
sound, and gestures tiiat were indica
tive of every article described. The
red men complained that tbey were
tired and weary of travel, and could
not the Governor give them a paper
that would take them down the river
on a steamboat ? Whether they got
a pass from the P. T. Co. or no, we
have not learned but they deserved
it, and we doubt if any Indian dele
gation has been to Salem in a long
time that has put on more style than
these nameless ones from Ceiilo w ho
have just visited their suffering" com
rade in the penitentiary.
Jackson, June 22d, 1868.
Ed. Entekfrise :
I have bnt recently returned from a
tour to " the West." The West is not ex
actly where it used to be, when you and I
set sail for Minnesota a few years since
you perhaps know best about that, how
ever, having traversed the extent of the
lines and stopped nowhere short of the
Pacific shores. " The West7 in this day.
is an expanse as boundless as it is fertile,
and adapted to the wants of millions who
are actually too poor to get away from
the hives in which tbey are swarming all
throughout the regions of America east ef
the Mississippi river. The progress of
the great Union Pacific Railroad over the
Plains and through the Mountains of the
far West, has given an impetus to emigra
tion inquiry which is wonderful to behold.
And among all grades of society you hear
of the everlasting want of information
concerning the country. If your State
Legislature would adopt the course pur
sued by Minnesota and Wisconsin you
might get 100,000 good citizens from
New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana,
and the west, this year. You may think
this a strange idea but it is true. We
know nothing of Oregon here California
is. well known. Three lectures were de
livered in this city last winter upon Cali
fornia, and Mr. M'Connell, agent for a San
Francisco homestead association, furnishes
enquirers with any amount of statistics
concerning that far off region not all of
which, perhaps, is true ;as I infer from an
occasional perusal ot your paper, which
leads me to believe that Oregon furnishes
much of the productions which are cred
ited to California. You may find consola
tion ia the fact, however, that those who
emigrate to California are not blind and
that if they find no place to suit they may
go on to Oregon. My own impressions
are that your State is the best, and I be
lieve that when you get fully awake to the
interest of railroads, (which I see by the
Exterpkisk is agitating the public mind in
Oregon.) you will be a great people com
mercially as well as agriculturally. The
citizens cf Oregon should do all that is in
their power to persuade Eastern capitalists
to invest in railroads. There is an im
mense amount of money in the East avail
able. This State is getting its share of
that capital. Railroads are the principal
stocks up now. Here we have tw o rail
roads now, as you are aware, and we have
just voted almost unanimously to pledge
the credit of the city and county in pay
ment of more interest. Iiy doing so the

At the recent meeting of the Michigan
State Agricultural Convention, the subject
under discussion was " The Relation which
Railroad Development bears to the Ag
riculture of the State."' Upon this im
portant topic , Mr. Ballard, of Niles. said
that railroads increased the value of land,
and furnished a market for produce of
every kind. There is much land in Mi
chigan adapted to the raising of potatoes,
and potatoes for a successful marketing,
depend greatly on railroads. Some years
ago then; was an objection to giving gov
ernment land for the construction of rail
roads, but in the census of 1SG0 it was
shown that farms had been benefited to
the amount of $ 1,000.000,000 by the con
struction of those roads. At first there
was a great opposition to the construction
of the Erie Canal, but since its construc
tion property has quadrupled in value in
its vicinity. The best interests in the
State of Michigan are bound in putting
through the new roads projected in the
interior. Ry increasing the value of land,
population is introduced, and the percen
tage of taxation diminished. He thought
that many of the railroads were discrimi
nating against Michigan interests in their
freights. At present they discriminate
against local freight in favor of thiough
freight, and urless more roads are built,
the discrimination will be greater as the
business of the great West increases.

Editor Enterprise :
I observe an advertisement in the Her
ald signed by one Jacob Brem. cautioning
all persons against trusting Pearl Lodge
No. 72 Good Templars. &c. Wherever
the said Brem is kuown, any refutation of
the charge is entirely superfluous. The
said Brem having been recently dis
charged from the services of the Oregon
Iron Co., as cook, for drunkenness, neg
lect of business, and, it is reported, for
other causes, attempted to make a raise to
leave town on, by bilking the Good Tem
plars and those of his friends who have
helped him and kept him in employment
for his family's sake. Failing ia that at
tempt, he lias found those who were will
ing to do dirty work for him, for the dol
lar, by publishing that which there is not
one word cf truth in, or a shadow of foun
Yours Respect full v,
L. H. CALKINS,
Member of Pearl Lodge.
