The Daily Record has suspended for a short time. 0 The title to the land upon which WallaWalIa was built, is vested in that city. Wm. II. Newell, editor of the Statesman, delivered a splendid ora tion at Walla Walla on the Fourth. The Walla Walla people have nominated three tickets for support Bt their city election. Jutnes Mc CaulifT is on each for mayor. It is safe to presume that he will be elected. According to the Bulletin, po litical teachers are being employed in the public schools at Portland. It sometimes happens that politicians have bo little brains that they never know where to stop in their dictum. On the 18th of next August an rclipse of the sun will take place which will be of great interest. We presume American astronomers will be on hand to witness it somewhere. . Senator Corbett's bill, throwing pf-n the Umatilla Reservation to OsettPcrs, passed the Senate on the 20th ult. There is no doubt but that this measure vvUl pass the House at this session of Obngress. Estes & Stinson's new saw mill, at Poland, is now ready to commence work. The main building is 120 by 44 feet in sizwith engine room 72 by 22. The power is about equal to 1 SO burse. The small pox, which took hold of the people at so rapid a rate in San Francisco lately, is r.ow on the de crease, fays the Sacramento Bee. It bi?s appeared in several parts of the State. The National Rejniblican of Washington, heretofore friendly to Johnson, and by some considered his organ, has placed at the head of its pages, the names of the Chicago nom inees. So it goes. Great distress is said to prevail iu Eastern Prussia, and the relief committee cf Lyck appeal to Ameri cans for help. Remittances will be gratefully received by any of the Committee and Julius Eckman, edi tor of the Hebrew Observer, of San Francisco. Democratic papers say that Grant was drunk at Shiloh, drui.kat Vicksburg, drunk at Fort Donelson, drunk at Richmond, and is drunk yet ! If it be true that Grant was drunk all the'time he was thrashing the De mocracy, what need they expect if wer he gets sober On Thursday last Mrs. Nancy B.

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 r 1 1 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 t-ral, that they belie their assertion that Lee is"a great general? For il Ijee was whipped bv a man who was no ceueral, in what capacity as a vldi-r 3?C5 Xef stsnd? 0 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 freedom. 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." Where he was drawing his lines nearer and nearer to Donaldson till Buckner was forced to assent to the " ungenerous and uuchivalrous terms'' cf unconditional surrender, which he proposed; when he was pounding at the door of Vicksbnrg, w hen he was pursuing the painting fugitives of the " Lost Cause'' in the Wilderness, and when dictating the terms of sur render to the proud and haughty Lee at Appomattox Court House, he was regarded by the Democracy as a ter rible m enster. When it became apparent that he possessed the hearts and affections of the American people, he was sud- Idenly invested with supernatural : .1 r t i charms in the eves of Democrati leaders, and they determined to win him if possible, and induce him to accept a Democratic nomination for the presidency. Then it was his wisdom, his valor and his integrity were freely admitted and even loudly proclaimed. But when he refused to be tempted with their offers, or cajoled by their flatte. ry, preferring to fight it out on the old line, they suddenly discovered that he was a drunkard, a tool, a mere mud sill, devoid of genius, and unfit to rule. Verily the ways of Democracy are hard. The Roseburg Ensign says: We have got the r.cws. Pendleton is played out. Chase is played out. Andy Johnson is played out, and Brick Pomcroy ditto. Belmont has named his man. Bonds and Wall street are triumphant. IloratioSey tnour, the. candidate who "withdrew" before the Convention, has.'by the art of New York bond holders r.nd the management cf New York wire work ers, supplanted all his rivals, and the Democratic party, so pure, so incor rnptib!e,so anxious to relieve the poor from taxes, has surrendered to a bond holding clique. We arc glad they have nominated just the ticket they did Horatio Seymour and Frank P. w Blair. We are perfectly willing to run the General who led cur armies to Richmond against the Generalis simo of the New York riot. We rat ify, and say buily fur Seymour ; he is List the man we want "to beat with THE PROSPECT; We hold it morally certain, says the Tribune, that the States here subjoined will choose Grant and Col fax Electors by decided majorities : Arkansas 5 Minnesota 4 Florida 3 Mississippi 6 Georgia 8 New Hampshire., 5 Illinois 16 Nojth Carolina. . . 9 Iowa 8 Rhode Island.... 4 Kansas 3 South Carolina. . . 6 Louisiana 6 Tennessee 10 Maine 7 Vermont 5 Massachusetts 12 West Virginia. .. . 5 Michigan 8 Wisconsin 8 Total 20 States 139 votes. Add to these either Pennsylvania or Ohio, or Indiana with Nebraska 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 draw New York and the rest after 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. INLUAX DELEGATION. 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 him well. 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. MICHIGAN LETTER. 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 amount is saved to our farmers, who pay the heaviest taxes, upon every bushel of grain they raise. Towns and counties all about us do Lms. mini week Grand Rap ids agreed by a vote of 75!) to !) to loan the Grand River Yallev Company S100, 000. She has done nobly ! Her action will hasten the completion of this much needed and long hoped-for road. The town has performed an act that will make the enterprise move forward with Grand Jiapid style. Our Lansing friends are hard at work in the interests of the Chicago and Michi gan Grand Trunk Railway, it is stated that the bondholders of the Grand Trunk road of Canada, promise that if the citizens upon the line w ill make the road bed and tie it. and take stock for all they put into it iu this manner, they will furni.'-h the iron and rolling stock and put it upon the road at cash price, and take stock tor it. When the road is completed it will be paid for : there will be no bonds to be negotiated and no mortgages to be foreclosed. It cannot be a year after the road is finished before it will be a paying road, and the stock will be at or above par. Any one will not dispute this if they will examine the line over which it passes, splitting a wheat belt about (iO miles wide, between the Central and I). fc M. roads, which is the 'most in the Western States, and at the same time supplying a link between two of the greatest thoroughfares in the world. The amount for Lansing to raise is $100, UUU, ot which SCO.OOO is by tax, and the balance by subscription. There will be hardlv a dissenting vote upon the tax, and $30.000 of the $10,000 has already been subscribed. An euthusiastic writer in the Niles Dem ocrat urging the people of that city to aid in building the Elkhart and Lake Michi gan railroad, says that the citizens should be willing to economise in all directions, to use tow strings for cravats, and gunny bags for sack coats if need be. in order to secure the road by the way of Niles. A line from East Saginaw to Port Huron is the last railroad scheme proposed in this State. 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. MrscEi.r.AXEors. A splendid bed of Peat has been found near Coldwater. A company have pur chased machinery and will at once enter upon its manufacture for fuel. People here have all kinds of clubs ; reading clubs, fishing clubs, base ball clubs, Irottiug clubs, etc. They have rare sport, and generally speaking can afford it. The Old Alloghanian Concert Troup have reorganized and are now traveling in Michigan. The Niles Republican mentions the fact that several severe cases of sickness have occurred in that vicinity supposed to have been caused by using milk which had been poisoned by something that the cows had eaten, supposed to have been lobelia. The House of correction proves to be an excellent institution as it saves hun dreds from going to the Penitentiary. The agricultural college is a success under the new management. It could hare been all the time if it had nevrr fallen into the hands of politicians. Political Faculty and Political Farmers are generally very poor stuff. J The celebrated Atlantic Ease Ball Club of Brooklyn will play a match here on the 30th of June with the Central Club of Jack5U- UOOSIEK. .Figaro has just come to light in the newspaperdom of San Francisco. It is about the same in style and interest as the Chronicle and such other trratuitons rrinf q Any man can afford, to take IImco. as it ' costs t. ' - ' nAii.no ao itisms. The father of the Pacific Rail road, Dr. Hartweil Carver, has lived to realize, in part, his anticipation of one day crossing the continent by railroad, as will be seen by the fob lowing, which we find in a late Eas tern paper: "General Carver, formerly of Min nesota, who was in Washington twenty-one years ago advertising the Utopian scheme of a Pacific Rail way, coes hence, to-morrow morning, for Fort Laramie, to enjoy his first trip over the new road. He goes, at the age of eighty, to found a new citv to bear bis name near the present terminus of the line. He Claims to be Jhe father of the Pa cific road, and exhibit as curios ities the pamphlets winch he pursu ed in favor of the enterprise in 1S47." The Salt Lake Reporter makes the following extract from Garfield's military report to Congress, and commends it to the full considera tion of the Sacramento Union, when fulmioating against aid to railroads from the Government: The cost to Government for transporta tion on the Union Pacific Railroad, eastern division, in 18G7, amounted to $511,90(5 21. If the military supplies were wagoned, and mails carried by stage, and the troops inarched (taking the average rates at which Government made its transportation contracts for that year as shown by cer tificates of the departments ot the Quarter master General and the Postmaster Gen eral), the total cost would have been 1,358,291 00. Saving to Government in 18G7, $81G, 382 82. At this rate of saving all the Uni ted States bonds issued in aid of this road, principal and interest would be extinguished in less than 4 years. The Chinese Government has employed Dr. D. J. MacGowan, who visited our city several years ago, to write a book on mining and metal lurgy; Mr. Martin, to prepare a work on natural philosophy, and Mr. Fry er to make translations of scientific treatises. Thus the Middle King dom officially abandons its ancient and pernicious error that it is the chief center of learning and civiliza tion, acknowledges the superiority of Caucasion art and science, and eu courages its people to learn from the Christians. Tradition, prejudice and exclusiveness have thus received a blow from which they will never re cover, and progress is at lst accept ed as the watchword of the slowest country on the face of the globe. The Portland Evening Com mcrcial made its appearance on Sat urday last. It seems to have a " payng'' air from the commence ment, and we wish it a successful ca reer. Mr. Bull proposes to make his paper strictly independent. In his first leader he says that he shall steer clear of all political locks. A copperhead paper says that Grant is pledged not to qualify as President. That Colfax w ill be really President. If so, w hich is not at all probable, what do they propose to do about it. Grant will be President do not lav the fact aside. The Oregon and Idaho telegraph line is solely a private enterprise, built by the O. S. N. Co., so far as it has been constructed. The advances which it now receives will all be paid back to those rendering the same, in business, upon the completion of the line. Thos. B. Florence, for ten years a Democrat, representative of the First Pennsylvania District, and now the editor of the Constitutional Union an extremely Democratic paper iu Washington City, has created some surprise by announcing himself in fa vor cf conferring the elective franchise upon all races and sexes. According to the Record.'' s ac count of the " monster" meeting at Salem last Saturday, there were about as many Republicans present as Damocrats. The latter were not so full of ratification as they would have been, had Pendleton been the man. But five arrests were made. Our friend R. T. Montgomery has again assumed charge of the Napa Register. Pecuniary embar rassments, resulting from insufficient support, Caused his predecessor Mr. N. E. White, to yield the tripod. The Register is a good paper, and ought to be better sustained. R. C. McCormiek, a staunch re- pubIican-Governor of Arizona has been elected to Congress from that Territory by about three hundred majority. A bill is being introduced into the British Parliament to transfer the Hndson Bay Territory to the Gov ernment. The O. & C. Stage Co. are now mekicg the trip to Portland from San Francisco in 51 days, placing us but fifteen days from New York by that route. The steam fire engine of Protec tion Co.
