Mr. John Mason, of San Fran-
cisco, is now in Oregon searching out
locality for his future residence.
The Abyssinian gets a liquid
beverage from barley, which is said
to resemble Holland gin in flavor.

He won't do.

The Walla Walla Statesman is
'in hope that Brick Pomroy will yet
come out and support Seymour nud
Blair says Brick is " too good" to
kick in the traces, etc.
Nine of the unreconstructed
States are now in the Union and
this, too, in the face of opposition to
their admission by the whole Demo
cratic gang about Washington.
The Lansing (Mich.) Republican
says the State Treasurer received on
Juno 20, a draft from the United
States Government for 8 1" 1,593 44,
-on account of the claim of that State
"for war expenses incurred at the
open'mg of the rebellion. There is
still a small claim, less than $30,000,
not adjusted, which is in the hands of
Quartermaster General Palmer, and
the flew vouchers aro soon to be
filea at Washington.
Brick Pomeroy, in speaking of
Frank P. Blair, nominee on the
Democratic ticket for Vice President,
usc3 the following language:
These BJairs are a filse hearted
race have been for more than twen
'ty Icjng years plotiii against the
peace of the country nd the rights of
States In the 4Jnion beginning with
the time when oldBlair got tuad be
causft President Polk would not keep
hit in ppsition as the 'administration
organ grinder at Washington, but
turned him eff for a sounder Deujo
crat and a? better and more trust-,
worthy tnan.O Ever since he has
pursued the Democratic party with
the malignant and vengeful spirit of a
wolf. And his two wolf cub, Mont
gomery and Frank, have bcn true
to their parentage. The former, as
Lincoln's Postmaster General, urbi
trarily, and in violation of the Con
stilution and laws, excluded from the
mails scores of Democratic newspa
pers, and supported all of Lincoln's
usurpations and measures of tyranny.
Frank signalized his zeal and brutal
ity, by commencing his military ca
reer under Lincoln in the i rnttra-
tion of an indiscriminate slaughter of
men, women and children, in the
streets of St. Louis. This was uni
versally acknowledged to bo one of
the most fiendish acts committed du
ring the war. In tha estimation of
some very soft-headed people, these
Blairs are now very good Democrats.
But never never will they be in
ours, nor do we believe that they are
or ever will be in the estimation of
an adamantine Democrat.
The Territorial Republican is a
neatly printed sheet, 22 by 32 inches
in size, thg initial number of which
has reached here. It is conducted by
J. R. Watson, and is the fourth week
Jy claiming an existence at the Terri
torial Capital, Olympia. Dow they
manage to live is a mystery, unless
they are supported by hostile factions
for spile. If 9uch be the case type
and presses will soon be cheaper in
Washington Territory than at the
foundry in San Francisco. The fol
lowing from the Republican, reveals
A fringe of the situation over there :
"Fowler controls Swan, Swan con
irols Pettygrove, Pettygrove controls

McElroy controls Murphy. Mur

Once more, Garfiefd controls Coul

D. Moore controls Geo. Butler, Geo.
Butler controls nobody.
Then Howe controls Fred Clark,
Fred controls Gunn. Gunn contiols
Watson, and Watson controls
This brings the first nine down to
the score, and Watson says the Capt.
cf it places himself in the several fac
tions as the nobody, constituting the
tail of each. Eight other factions
are referred to. Perquisites must be
good to get no sugb row. ,
We have just rHurned from a hur
ried trip up the vHey, and us usual
have renewed coiddence in the State,
believe, more'tban eTer if possible,
that Oregon is the paradise of the
world. Our readers know very well
that important work must be per
formed, to let Americans know that
Oregon is an integral part of the
United States that this is really the
land flowing with uiilk and honey.
We last week promised a few valua
ble suggestions from Dr. Loryea.
The Doctor says:
I have seen, and had frequent in
terviews with prominent llail Rond
capitalists, speculators, and monied
men, and I see no difficulty in the
way of obtaining all the money aiid
material necessary to build not only
our road but other roads in Oregon
The people here know nothing at all
of our State. This condition of thing
is very mortifying to me, bnt upon
my statement of our agricultural,
mineral, and manufacturing resour
ce, and the exhibition of our pro
ducts and statistic?1, (meagre as my
materials are), they express great
surpiise, and promise to endeavor to
become better acquainted with our
young and promising Oregon. There
is not an Oregonian here, but feels
the great necessity of our Legislature
instituting measures, whereby Ore
gon can make a proper showing of
her vast resources, and competency
to support and make happy a multi
tude of energetic farmers, artizans,
and enterprising men and women.
We can secure with proper efforts, a
perfect food of emigrants.
How is this desideratum to be ac
complished? I say by a proper and
competent Agent of the State, who
will collect a complete and varied as
sortment of every thing that is a source
of profit. Flour, wheat, oats, barley,
hops, flax and fhx seed, hay, pota
toes, apples,pears, woods of all kinds,
leather, meats; wool and manufac
tured goods. These articles in sufli
cient quantities to bo divided into
five or six complete assortments, to
be placed in charge of competent
person, who shall institute a " De
partment from Oregon,'' at all of the
great State Fairs held in this country,
where thousands of peoplecongreg te.
This is the best plan, I think, to
attract attention to Oregon. In ad
dition, have a complete article written
upon our resource", containing neces
sary information concerning the State,
which can be di&ti ibuted at such pla
cesTrec of cost.
Every paper in Orfgon should take
up the subject and urge it upon the
approaching legislative assembly. Fr
the next two years it will be m st
important that we direct immigration
to our shores. All over tfie eastern
and western States ihousmds upon
thousands are preparing to ieav for
the golden shores f the Pacific but
their cry is for California. Oregon
is not heard of ! Let us bi.t bestir
ourselves, and we can readily obtain
our sh ire of what we most need pop
'I he above valuable hints, if acted
upon judiciously, would prove worthy
of this great retiion. Who comes
to Oregon, that has cnterpris; within
them, that dees not secure a compe
tency within a very short time ? It
is utterly impos-ib!e for an Oregon
farmer to fail iu raising a crop of the
best grain in the world annually,
and what better occupation can be
pursued than farming, in the country
which commands the highest premi
ums, the best prices, and sustains the
least losses'? We quote farther :
I am disappoiitted with Broadway.
It is no comparison to Montgomery
street. Our Pacific coast ladies are
healthier, handsomer, and better
dressed. There is more beauty, less
paint, less poverty, and not as much
ciime in Oregon, in proper propor
tion to the number of people. I have
not seen a real healthy, good looking
baby, since 1 have been here. Ore
iron can beat t fie east on babies.
The bread here is black, heavy,
and horrible made, out inferior va
r'e ics of fluir. .Even at the Astor,
Metropolitan, and Ffth Avenue Ao,
tela, the bread, in jnorer than what you
meet with at the cheapest restaurants
in Orrgm. Their meals are inferior,
jioorly cooked, and I have not teen a
good potaloe since I If I Web fool !
If Oregoniaiis would only appre
ciate what a good country they have,
and would ttnile in developing its re
sources, pull together, how happy
they could become, how rich, and
Tha Oregonian says there is
4,000 feet of wharf in Portland. Of
the Xieolson pavement, there is, in
length, upwards of 5,000 feet. Six
dwellings ore now in course of con
struction, the average cost of which
will be over 5,000. $200,000 will
be expended in ihe erection of brick
buildings during this summer. There
are three 6team saw mills, each capa
ble of cutting 50,000 feet of lumber
daily. There are fifteen hotels, with
accommodations for 2,500 guests.
There are ten churches that will seat
congregations numbering in all, ,000.
There are tight schools with an at
tendance of about 1,200 pupils. There
are about 100 saloons, reckoning all
places where drinks are sold. There
are eight steamboats that ply regu
larly to and from the city. There is
telegraphic communication in three
directions with Washington Terri
tory, Eastern Oregon, California, and
thence with all the world.
The steamer Tom Stevens has
been within six miles of the Missouri
falls above Benton, this season. The
trip was made by a party of excur
sionists in" JoIv.y
PAVE THE WAY,
Under date of July 24th we have
intelligence that party of Eastern
capitalists were to rendezvous at
Philadelphia on the 10th inst., and
from there start far Oregon, with
Dr. Loryea. This party consists of
railroad capitalists ; iron capitalists ;
manufacturing men and bankers.
They will stop

They will visit Yaquina Bay, and
return to Salem and Portland on the
west side of the river. Then go
again to Saletn during the session of
the Stae Legislature; from there to
California overland, and home again.
Among the names mentioned in
this party of gentlemen is that of
Mr. Brinck, Vice President of the
National Iron Works Company, at
Danville, Pennsylvania, whose, ini
mense mines and mills have supplied
most of the railroad iron for thu
Central Pacific Railroad Company,
and whose productions may soon be
come familiar to Oregonians. Mr.
Welsh, Superintendent of the most
extensive Polling Mills in Pennsvl
vania ; General Gregory, one of the
most, eminent of Western Bankers at
Cincinnati, Ohio; Mr. Winslow.
Banker, he who constructed the Penu
sylvania Central Railroad Company,
and has but recently completed the
Terre Haute Railroad to St. Louis.
These gentlemen are coming out
here to see Oregon ! They have heard
of the manifold resources of our be
loved State, and they desire to see
something of them. We trust that
they may meet with a hospitable re
ception by the citiz ;ns of the places
they design visiting. They have been
told of our immense iron beds, our
unequalled water power, our produc
tive fields now let us show them
what we have got.
It is of no use for Oregoniaus to
lay by these resources in wait for
'something to turn up" any longer
twenty five or thirty years is long
enough a new era is dawning upon
our beautiful land, and all we want
is to keep the progressive spirit awoke
until we have population and capital
commensurate with our resources
Let the citizens of Oregon every
where act as a unit in meeting this
party. Extend to then that degree
of hospitality which shall show that
we are earnestly in hope that they
will come and invest with us; that we
want them and their friends, and their
friends' frit mis, to become identified
with th3 interests of Oregon.
There will be-no time to lose. So,
pave the way, and all pull together.
The S in Francisco company or
ganized some time since for the pur
pose of making sorghum sugar, are
going ahead with their operations.
They have one hundred and fifty
acres of the cane grow ing near Alvi
so. They have contracted for this
crop at the rate of thirty dollars per
acre, and expect to get from it about
fifty thousand gallons of syrup, w hich
will yield about Gve or six pounds of
sugar per gallon, besides a residue of
This estimate of the crop is larger
than would be warranted in the east,
but is amply supported by the numer
ous experiments in sorghum growing
which have already been made in Cal
ifornia. The syrup ready for matket,
will cost the company about twenty
two cents per gallon, which will leave
I an ample margin for profit, as all
the syrup they can make can be
very readily disposed of for at
least sixty cents for every gallon.
The Sacramento beet sugar com
pany are also showing a most com
mendable enterprise. They have
sent an agent to the east and to En
rope for the purpose of acquiring a
practical knowledge of the best
methods of manufacture and securing
the best machinery and seed. They
are going to work in a way which in
sures success if success is possible,
and of that there seems to be no
doubt. Success to both these enter
prises. Why are not such cnterpris
e-s as these started in Oregon by men
w ho have capital and tune to invest.
The second annual fair of the
Washington County Agricultural so
ciety mill be held at H.'llsboro, on the
grounds of the Society, beginning on
September 5th, and continuing for
five days. Win. A. Mills is President
of the Society ; J. D. Merryman Sec
retary, and U. Jackson Treasurer.
Hon. Joseph S. Smith will leave

Marion Square has cost Sdem
$1,000 attorney fees, $000 for im

in the future, when her population is
dense, and this park becomes the
lungs of the cilv.
Oregon is almost as large as
Spain with her 1-1,000,000 inhabit
ants. The Wallamet valiey alone is
capable of supporting a population of
1,000,000, and yet the whole State
does not contain more people than
Washington city. A large accession
to the population of Oregon is indis
pensable to the prosperity jf the
Sitte, and immigration sh ni l be en
couraged in every way possible.
A gentleman of Portland has
undertaken the raising of s;lk worms.
and is so far successful, we under
stand, that his cocoons are making
thread. The Pioneer Silk Manufac
turing Co. cf San Jose has betn dis
incorporated, in accordance with the
petition of a majority of the stock
holders. We hope that the State Fair at
Salem, next month, beginning ou
the2Sth and continuing for six iays,
will be largely attended. The offi
cers are, ns we published the list re
cently: A. J. Dufur. of Multnomah
county, President; J. G. Ba-ket and
W. J. Ilerren, Vice Presidents; C.
N. Terry and E. M. Waite, Secreta
ries; J. II. Moores, Treasurer.
We found Mr. John Everst, ol
Portland, instructing a brass band at
Salem. John was oiue driven out of
doors for tooling his hrn, Wit that
was when lie was a small boy, just
displaying his genius. The citizens
generally, at Salem, feel proud of
their band, but occasionally one is
heard to cuss 'cm ; all such are. treated
respectfully by the boys, however,
even if it costs a bottle of whisky.
The Herald Kays that A. J.
Dufur, Esq., President of the State
Agricultural Society, is in possession
of replies from all parts of the State
to his published inquiries ; now, why
not employ some competent person
to get up a pamphlet embodying nil
the information on hand, and cause
ten thousand copies of it to be dis
tributed amongst the recently arrived
immigrants to California, on board
the Panama steamers, and in the
Eastern States ? Wo believe the
necessary funds could be raised in
Portland alone, by an energetic per
son. We have conversed about these
matters with C. M. Carter, E-q , and
A. J. Dufur, E-q , aud have no doubt
but they will assume the duty of su
perintending the publication and dis
tribution of the pamphlets.
The Unionist was recently great
ly agitated for fear that Tom Cox
was lost. A few days since intelli
gence was received from him through
a gentleman at Eugene City, stating
that ' he has taken everything in the
shape of fish out of the river ; at .-my
rate, John Kelly had to go up to the
head of the race with a band of men
to get water to run the mills. He is
a mighty fisher ! He then went over
on to Long Tom, and was doing a bio
business there in fishing, and hauling
the fish to Eugene for sale But,
alas ! the best laid schemes o' mica
and men gang oft a'GIee ! When
(he Long Tom mers fun d out that a
TT ' r rs i
union man irotn oalem was taking
all their fi-h, they swore in their
wrath and drove him ff, minus alt
his last draught, of fish, which he left
in the river. He went out again on
the Middle Fork with a paity, and if
he succeeds in getting a good haul of
fish, and no Democtats get hold of
him, he will be home soon. Should
he not be successful, it is hard to tell
when he will be home, for he must,
make up the price of the watch and
the money he lost en the election,
and it must be done by fish."
Midway Islands have been taiVn

It will be recollected that last sum

An employee of the West Side
Company 1-sst week applied for work
on the line of the O. C R. R. Co., of

ADOPTED BV THE NATIOXAL IXION CONVENTION
Resolved, 1st. That we congratulate tbe
couutry 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 poliiical rights to
all, and we regard it as the duty of the
government to sustain these Constitutions,
and prevent the people of such States
from being remitted to a state of anarchy
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 loj'al States 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 in the utrrost good luitb to our
creditors at home and abroad, not only
according to the letter, but spirit of the
laws under which it was contracted.
4th. It is due to the labor of the nation
that taxation should be equalized and re
duced as rapidly as the national faith will
5th The national debt, contracted as it
had been for preservation of the Union
for all time to come, 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.
Cth. 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, partial or total, open or
covert, is threatened or suspected.
7th. The Government of the United
States should be administered with the
strictest economy. The corruptions which
have been so shamefully nursed ami fus
H'red by Andrew Johnson, call loudly lor
8ih. We profoundly deplore the un
timely and tragic death of Abraham Liu
coin, and regret the succession of Andrew
Johnson to she I're.-idemia! chair, who has
acted treacherously to the people who
elected him and the cause he was pledged
tosnppoit. who has usurped h'gii legisla
tive aud judicial functions, hits refused to
execute the laws, has ucd I. is high oflice
to induce other otliccrs !o violate the laws,
has employed his Executive power to ren
der insecure the lives, property, peace and
liberty of citizens, has abused the pat dott
ing power, has denounced the National
Legislature as tincoustituit'Unil. has per
sistently ami habiinaily resisted by every
means in h:s power, every attempt at the
reconstruction of theStaies lately in rebel
lion, has- perverted public patronage into
an engine for wholesale corruption, lias
justly been impeached for high crimes and
misdemeanors, and has been pronounced
guilty thereof by the voles of 1 Senators.
Dili. The doctrine of ("rear l;ri:ian and
other European powers that, because a
man is once a subject he is always so.
must be resisted at every hazard by the
United Slates 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 rights of
citizenship as though they were native
born. No citizen of 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 ta interfere in his
1 0th. Of all who wre faithful in the
trials of the late war. there were none
more faithful for special honor than brave
soldiers and seamen who endured hardships-
of camp and cruize and imperiled

Gentlemen I want to say a little mors
about the Pain Killer. I consider it a very
valuable medicine, aud alwavs ktcp it on
hand. I have traveled a great deal since I
have been in Kansas, and never wiihout tak
ing it with nie. In my practice 1 used it
freely for the Asiatic Cholera in 1 a:, and
with better sticcessthan with any other med
icine. I also used it here for Cholera in lsO.3,
with the same good results.
A. HUNTING, M. I).
"I regret to say that the Cholera
has prevailed here of late to a fearful extent.
For the last three week-;, from ten to fifty or
sixty fatal eases each day have been repot t
ed. I should add that the Pain Killer sent
recently from the Mission House, has been
used with considerable success during this
epidemic. If taken it season, it is generally
effectual in checking tin- disease.
