IHtCIl OF AOXIIIAG.
The Lafayette Courier, Polk coun
ty Signal, and Oregon Herald have
much to say of their " fellow citizens''
the Chinese. They are becoming
alarmed lest, tinder the Burlingame
treaty, they will rush off and marry
a Coolie. (?) They say the treaty con
fers the right of citizenship, when at
the same time they know they lie,
flatly; when they say so. The treaty
with China does not confer the privi
lege of citizenship upon the Chinese
in the least particular. The Herald
"discountenances'' liots against the
Chlne-e. and yet 55 enconrages riot
ing in this manner:
We nre informed that forty or fif
ty men congregated in front of the
pest house night before last, and
threatened to clean it out. A mob
is the most terrible and at the same
time the most despicable thing in the
world. No good was ever accom
plished by one, and good citizens
should never listen to any proposi
tion which involves resort to com
bined force against law and order.
Taking the law into our
own hands would be justifiable only
after the commercial States, when ful
ly advised in the premises, had
shown themselves to be so selfish as
to be willing to enjoy a remunerative
trade at the expense of the utter deg
radation of the Pacific coast.
The above is a good illustration of
the language cf the "old Public
Functionary " Buchanan, who hav
ing listened to Lincoln's first inau
gural, was asked his opinion with re
spect to it on the .way home. TJe
repiicd that he was not able to say,
as he did not know the secret mean
ing of the words used by Mr. Lin
coi.v. Copperheads always have a
secret meaning lo their words they
never state facts unless their-is a se
cret behind them, in words or action,
to refute and pervert t lie truth.
Seemingly the Herald denounces ri
oting, but secretly it wonld rejoice to
see blood shed at any time, under no
matter what pretext, so long as po
litical capital could be made out of
it. The, o.n!y article in this treaty
with China about which Copperheads
seem lo tremble is the following:
Article G. That citizens of the two
nations shall c-t joy in the other the
same privileges, immunities, or rx
eruptions in respect to travel or resi
dence, as may there be enj ed by
the citizens e! ihe most favored na
tions. Now a suljscl of China is a citizen
of China. A citizen of China sh;d!
enjoy the right of protection when
traveling or residing in the United
States. This does not in the least
affect the matter cf suffrage or citi
zenship in. the United States. And
under it no Chinaman has a right lo
The treaty gives the rul-jects of
China the same privileges etc., when
visiting or residing in the United
Stales with reject to travel or resi
dence, as may be enjoyed by " the
citizens of the most favored nation55."
The United States has no treaty,
ncr never hadr wnh any nation, au
thorizing or permitting its subjects to
become naturalized in the United
States. Ccvarcss lias the power to
provide for the naturalization of for
eigners. At present the law only
permits the naturalization of ichile
foreigners. This does not include
mongolians or rthinamcn. But even
supposing that Chinese were entitled
to become naturalized under this
treaty, (made by Democratic Seward
on the part of the United States), still
they would be as far from the rigid
of suffrage as ever. Naturalization
makes a foreigner a citizen of the
United States he is no longer an
alien, but, under the Constitution as
it was and is, it depends upon (lie faui
of the 2iriicular Stale in which he re
sides, ivhelhcr he is entitled to vole or

The great importance cf railway com
munication in Oregon, while it may have
aroused the public mind to that degree
that would induce them to liberally aid
every enterprise of this character, may
have had the effect, and doubtless has had
the effect, of creating that credulity in Ihe
minds of honest people that causes them
to become the dupes of designing men.

roads, are simply making a living, and
Ibdivj iheir oicn pockets out of tiie hard
earned proceeds of honest toil. When
ever, therefore, a man who was never
known to have the ability or disposition
to engage in any legitimate business, by
which an honest livelihood could be ob
tained, comes before the people professing
the disposition and ability to build a rail
road, it i.s high time that the people who
are asked to contribute to such an enter

facts, and should know something of the
modus operandi by which such a man.
who. without any capital, save consummate
unscrupulousness, without the talent even
of a fifth rate pettifogger, is to construct a
railroad. Listen, then, unsuspecting citi
zens of Oregon, and you shall know some
thing of the manner in which one such, at
least, proposes to build a railroad for the
good people of the West Side. A cor

at five million dollars. And it is repre

that this corpora' ion. so formed, is entitled
to the Congress land grant of x'2.S00 acres

through the Wallamcf, Cmpqua, and
Ivogae River valleys. And also that it is
entitled to the Stale all of tiie payment of
interest on one million dollars of its bonus
for twenty years besides the aid offered
by the city of Portland and (he counties
of Washington and Yamhill. Now sup
pose for the sake ot the argument, that
this is al! true. Who, we iucpiire, ho'do
the slock in this vast corporation ? If it
be true that this corporation have such
valuable franelrses. then it is equally true
that these franchises are represen:ed In
