The usual lecture at Oro Pino Hall
was omitted last Sunday evening in
consequence of the excitement over the
fire. On next Sunday evening tbe con
clusion of our subject, "Amusements
Tbeir Uses and Abuses," will be given,
and we hope to meet all our old bearers
and as many now ones as the Hall will
uiic lesuvities ot tlie Holidays are
upon us iu tho fullness of tbeir force.
Many are tbe hearts that arc made glad
by tbe munificence or tbougbtfulness of
loved ones at home and abroad, and
many, alas, are tho souls that are deso
late because poverty and sickness bring
to them no joy or gladness. Ict us re
joice with those tbnt Are glad and la
ment with those who mourn. And
now, dear patrons, one and all, the
New Southwest greets you witli a
desire that each may see "many happy
returns of tbe season." AVc hope you
have .all bad presents, beautiful and
bounteous; that each has remembered
some person less fortunate than him
self, and that all are preparing for an
Eternal Holiday of which this is the
prototype. As we write our heart goes
out to the lonely women in farm houses,
the ruddy-faced country maiden at her
mirror, the poor strcamstress in the at
tic, and the tired mother at her toil.
"Ve see tho wealthy woman in her city
homo beside tho glowing grate: the lan
guid belicarranging her intricate laby
rinths of puffs and Hounces; the weary
merchant over his ledger ; the anxious
tenant whose next month's rent is com-
inir due with no cash in bis pocket: the
miner in bis cabin; tbe farmer with his
flocks and herds; the minister in his
study, and above all the smiling faces
of happy children who sing the praises
of old Santa Claus and join their merry
voices with the cheerful chimes of
And now we say unto our patrons,
one and all, we need your substantial
remembrance. A heavy bill for paper
and press-work, which has been accu
mulated that you may read these pages
regularly, stares us in the face like Ban
quo's ghost. Can you not each renew
your subscriptions with "tbe new year?
Can you not each procure us one new
subscriber and remit us tho cash, that
we may thereby rejoice with you in the
glory of the coming year?
Again, to eacli and all we bow witli
trreetintr. Asrain to even- friend we
say, all Jtail!
Scarcely had the State recovered from
the shock of tho Oregon City devastation
Portland was visited by tho fire
fiend, and the tracks lie lias left arc in
Our citizens wero suddenly alarmed
on Sunday morning by a dense cloud of
smoko which seemed to originate sim
ultaneously from an American saloon
and a Chinese wash house. The daily
press with oue accord lay the blame
upon the Chinamen, who, like the
O'Leary cow, have no means of denial,
but citizens, living adjacent, have de
clared to us that the flames were first
seen rising from tho saloon. Be that as
it may, the fiery monster gained so rap
idly upou the combustible materials
which lay in waiting for it, that our
gallant firemen were unable to control
it, although they worked with a will
that excited wonder and admiration.
For a time it seemed that the whole
city was doomed. The wind blew some
times in fitful gusts, and again in steady
currents, scattcriug the breath of the
fire fiend broadcast upon tbe buildings,
where, but for tho vigilance of everybody,
hundreds of conflagrations would have
rekindled from its contact. Our fire
men worked to the extreme of exhaus
tion. Chinamen were impressed into
tbe service by means efficacious but
reprehensible. "White men stood idle
by hundreds, uuablo to find anything to
do. Men and1 women vied with each
other in removing and damaging prop
erty. And still the insatiate monster
gained upon tho engines, laughing as
lie licked tbe rushing water with his
ten thousand tongues, roaring fortli
his fierce defiance of tbeshrieking winds
and hissing horribly at the fast falling
Some of the finest lire-proof structures
in the city, with all their contents, were
iu flames. Explosion after explosion
rent the air, and hope seemed well nigh
dead, when the wind, as if in pity of
the city's woes, veered suddenly away
from the ruins, under which three
noble firemen had been almost fatally
crushed, and moaning, as- if repentent
over the desolation lie had helped to
scatter, sought the river, to which he
chanted a solemn requiem. Shortly
after this providential .change of the
wind, a drenching rain began to fall,
and our exhausted firemen were re
lieved by reinforcemeuls from Van
couver, Snlem, Oregon City aud Albany,
and the elements aud men combined to
quell the fire fiend's reign of devasta
tion. We have notspace for fuirparticu
lars. The whole amount of loss was
$111,170. The insurance was $111,000.

Wells Drury has retired from the pub
lieation of the Clirhlian Messenger of
MonmoHth. It is not stated who runs
that paper uow.
It is well known that in this as wall
as other cities tho women teachers in
the public schools have heretofore been
paid just about one-half tlio compensa
tion for their services that the men
teachers received, who, in many in
stances performed less labor than was
imposed upon tbe protected (?) women in
tbe same public employ.
Now, wc suppose the public is looking
for these presents to proclaim the glad
tidings that the men teachers, seeing
the injustice or this invidious distiuclon
in regard to tbe sex rather than the
brains of woman, have circulated a peti
tion among the tax-payers and suc
ceeded in getting tho directors to raise
the women's salaries a little above their
own, that man's protective idea might
thus bo practically illustrated. Or per
haps the gentle reader is expecting us
to chronicle the glorious news that the
noble men, knowing woman's physical
inferiority, and their own chivalrous
regard for her comfort, have decided to
do woman's work iu the schools iu the
future and that, at tho same time they
intend to reduce their theory to practice
by herea fter supporting the dcpeudent(?)
creatures. Gentle reader, you may
crow savniro now, for we have nothing
of the kind to tell. Tho plain truth is,
that tho live men teachers recently cir
culated among the tax-payers a petition
to get their own salaries already twice
as large as those of the women raised
$500 each. This petition has been
granted by the generous Board, and the
women now receive about one-third iu
stead of out-half of tho remuneration
enjoyed by their colleagues iu the same
vocation. Prolcssor King, of tho North
Grammar School, now rcceh'cs $1,S00
per annum; Prof.. "Williamson, of the
Central School, the same; Prof. John
son, of the High School, which school
would have passed into oblivion last
spring but for the vigilance of the New
XoivroiWEST, receives a salary of $2,000;
Prof. Pratt, of the South Grammar
School, gets $l,SO0; and Mr. Meacliatn
assistant in the High School, under the
supcrvhioiupf a lady, who is paid $750,
(tho highest price for woman's service),
gets 5-I,ij00, although lie is a young
man, inexperienced as a teacher, and
witli no family to support the old ex
cuse for giving men superior wages
while several of the women teachers
have dependent families.
Now, good women of Portland, why
is tills? Don't you see that man pos
sesses power, pecuniary and political, to
enable him to make and control his own
circumstances a power which is, and
ever will be, beyond your grasp, until
you, like him, shall have the influence
of the ballot ? Wc used to pity women
who boasted that they "wanted no more
rights," but we have outgrown the
sentiment of pity now, and confess that
we're ashamed of them. Such selfish
ness is culpable, such ignorance is
inexcusable. Wc learn that the worn
en teachers, several of whom hav
but just opened their eyes to the neces
sity of the Woman Movement, are now
circulatingapetition, praying the Board
to raise their salaries. They may sue
ceeu in securing nair tne pay now re
ceived by the men, but they will get no
more than half until they become voter,
and consequently of some political im
portance among office-holders and
office-seekers. Women of Portland
don't you see?

There is no common sense in the Elec
toral idea; consequently its practical
application, in these days of bribery
and corruption, may well be considered
doubtful. Wo sincerely hope the Con
slitutiou may be so amended as to abol
ish the Electoral College; also tho elec
tion of Senators by the State Legisla
tures, and the repeal of nii appointive
ofliccs; and though the JSullciin's idea
is not so clear and strong as wc could
wish, yet It augurs a perception of the
true Democratic idea of Republican pol
itics, and wc arc glad to notice it.
Postal telegraphy Is another very im
portant theme which that journal con
siders very impartially. "We arc sorry,
however, that the "little disposition" of
Congress to take action in this matter,
'which the Executive aud Postmaster-
General recommended a year ago," does
not recicve'lliat scathing rebuke from
the editor's powerful pen which that
15odys culpability deserves. The fact
would be amusing if not so sadly impor
tant, that witli the exception of an oc
casional shiniug light, the great army
of our law-makers, from constable to
Congressman, are below the average of
the intellectual manhood with which
uiey are associated at uome; conse
quently they are little disposed to take
action in anything important, because
they have not sufllcinct brain power to
comprehend important ideas. Says the
it Ik argucu I uai the unvvmmont lias no

by undertaking the system of postal tele
trrnnhy. Itut the answer to this Is that the
Hcuuiaitlon of the teleitranhs and the trank

tmusnortatkin or the mails. -t it must be

Itcasoning from our present political
economy, there is no doubt but that
partisan polities would -control the pos
tal telegraph system, just as it now con
trols the mails. Dut let all ofliccs uow
in the gift of the Administration be
come elective, and our system of parti
san patronage would topple over at
once. There would then be no need to
fear a "government of the people by the
people;" but such a Government as ours,
is it is to-day understood by all parties,
having the power of direct representa
tion without the substance thereof, is
liable at any time to become revolution
ary and dangerous.
Ve feel that the most important
work, and one calling loudest for the
present consideration of the American
people, is the need for a General Con
vention of men and women, to form a
new Constitution, in keeping with tho

fearful holocaust in the near future,
