to break it down.' It don't break down
worth a d n. Don't yon see we can't
beat Grant with two tickets. You
Baltimore chaps endorse me and
Brown, and there will be hut one tick

foolishness of nominating a man of

It""s my first and lat chance, and I

never, got anything that way. This
Grant is a terrible fellow, and has an
old habit of cleaning out Democrats
tliat must lie very uncomfortable, for
you Baltimore chaps to remember. If
you go it alone he is sure to chaw you

0LY A FEW "M ATTEBIXG.-
The Xew York Tribune affirms that
the re-uomination of Grant produced
no enthusiasm, and that it was not in
accordance with the wishes ot the
masses of the Republican party. The
Xew York Herald, however, tells the
simple, plain truth about the matter in
the lollowiiiir laniruairo : "it is clear
! as the noon-day sun, from the harmony
' and enthusiasm of this Philadelphia
1 Convention in support of Grant, that,
with some scattering exceptions, he is
l backed by the rank and tile ot the Re
publican party throughout the country.

EXEKt ISE FOH THE STATE Ol l l
We recollect very well that a couple
of years ago the Democracy were mak
ing a great noise about warrants being
drawn against funds where no appro
priations had yet been made. They
declared it unlawful. Members of the
Legislature so pronounced it; a State
Judge (Democratic) so pronounced it ;
and the Smeliing Commission (which
is now the worst smelling thing in the
State) so pronounced it. The pro
nouncement was unanimous, and the
howl over it was one grand chorus.
Matters are not now, though, as they
used to was. Democrats are in the
State ofllces, provided with blank war
rants which are useless things unless
filled up and signatured. Democrats
are in the Penitentiary business; also
in tlie business of (Kip-sucking, gener
ally ; mid wliat to them is a Junk war
These various facts and considera
tions have had a powerful two-fold ef
fect upon the Democratic mind least
wise those minds which are engaged
upon Stale business. Penitentiary busi
ness and pa-sucking business. They
now see that drawing warrants is just
as easy where there is no appropria
tion as where tliere is one, anil that it
is altogether a harmless sort of amuse
ment, in which the drawer may In
dulge without loss or exioiise to him
self, and the drawee, with much profit.
Accordingly the warrant-drawing bus
iness has been rather the most brisk
feature in financial affairs, at the seat
of Government, for several months. It
Ls stated confidently, and we believe it
to be true, tliat the Penitentiary ap
propriation has been very largely over
drawn. Xcarly, if not all tlie over
drawn warrants, lear date anterior to
the election. A DemotTatic majority
in tlie Legislature would have made
everything lovely, of course, and, of
course a Democratic majority was just
what the State officers confidently ex
jiected while such warrants were being
filled up with word and flguer and
signatures. Tlie majority in the Legis
lature, however, is tlividedly not J K-ino-
eratic. Tliere will surely be an investi
gation of the matter (Tom Patton will
probably be at tlie head of the new
Smelling Committee), and State offi
cers just now, even as the Dog Days
are coming on, will have to remain
away from the sea-side, and tike ex
ercise in tlie matter of fixing things
up.. The Democratic situation, as re
lates to State officer-:, is not ; as lovely

The Benton Democrat i alarmed
lest .he State Senate shall admit Mr.
A. 31. AVitham to tlie seat in that body
from which he was illegally ejected In
1 S70. Let the Demon at rest assured
that the State Senate will do what is
right in the matter. There is not a
man alive who believes that Mr. Stni-
han belongs in that seat b right of
election by the people. Mr. AVitham
was turned out and Mr. Strahan was
put in, because the I)emocratic rings
ot corruptionists had a series of jobs
to put through. For these, Mr. Wlth
am's vote could not be had ; Mr. Stra
hans could. Xobody knows better
than the committee who had the pre
tended investigation of the "contest,"
in charge, how utterly the genuine ev
idence in the cae was disregarded in
making up their report to the Senate ;
and nobody knows better than the Sena
tors who voted to oust AVitham. what
immensity of corruption and outrage
there was in the act. Mr. Witham
was fairly elected ; the seat belongs to
him ; it will be right for the Senate to
give it to him, and we say it will be
recreant to one ot its highest duties, if
! it ones not no it.
7er is something very true and
very good that Greeley once said ot
Grant : "The people ol the United
States know General Grant have
known all about him since Doiielsotv
and Vicksbnrg; they do not know his
slanderers and do not care to know
them.' ft all that Greeley lias Mid 1
of Grant were collected and pnblislted ,
together, it would make a ixmderous

would prove conclusively that Gree- i

RECEPTION OF THE KEWS FItOM
The telegrams announcing the grand
Republican victory in your State, were
received with great satisfaction
throughout the country; no where
more noticably than in Philadelphia,
during tlie session of the National Con
vention of tlie Republican party. As
the first gnu of tlie Presidential cam
paign, it 13 regarded as conclusive tliat
the country is not prepared to hand .
over the administration of its affairs to
the ex-slave-holding oligarchy ot tlie
South and their Xortliern dongh-faco
allies. Oregon has done nobly, and
will be honored in the next House of
Representatives by a gentleman ot abil
ity, i:i the person of Judge WH-nn.
I if will at once command the attention
of the House in matters relating to the
interests of his State. For the past
four years "tlie ineuilier from Oregon"
in the lower House has not had that
influence or weight tliat he should have
had. This is owing to tlie fact that he
belonged to tlie factious Temocratic
minority a minority powerless for
good or evil. '
COMPLIMENT AKY TO SENATOR CORBETT.
In the Senate. Senator Corbett com
mands the respect and attention at
that body. As second on the Commit
tee of Commerce his labors have been
anlipn, und in the highest degree sat-
WEDNESDY, JULY 3, 1872.
i-fictory to tho Senate and country.
He is also on the Committee of Indian
Aflair. How well he ha discliargil
the duties ou that committee cau be
shown by the largely increased appro
priations for the trilies iu Oregon aud
Washington Territory, aud for the im
provement of tlie Columbia and Wil
lamette river?. In fact, it will be no
ticed that the appropriations for Ore
gon for tlie year ending 30th Jmie,1873,
are largely in excess of former year.
This result was- achieved almost ex
clusively through tlie energy, tact- and
ability displayed in tlie Semite by the
Republican Senator from Oregon. Iu
referring to the result of your election,
tlie Boston Transcript of the 3d of June
refers to Senator Corliett as follows:
"We did injustice yesterday to Senator
Corbett. of Oregon, in classing him as
a Democrat Mr. Corbett was elected
as a Republican, and is a member of
tlie Republican Congressional Commit
tee intrusted with the management of
the Presidential campaign. Mr. Cor
bett is a business man in the prime of
life, who has risen with the rising for
tunes of his Suite. He is an influential
ineniler ol the committees on Indian
Affairs Commerce, and, we believe,
one other, and impresses all who meet
him by his ability and courtesy. Ore
gou liiay have many better men for
Senators, with better politics than
Henry W Corliett, but it is doubtful if
she has ever yet sent any of tlieui to
Washington. The Boston Journal,
tlie leaii'mst Republican r.aterof Xew
KngHin!. coiiiiiienlitig on lla; result of
tin S:U- election, says : "Mr. CorU-tt
is a K-uililitiaiu and a member of the
Congressional Republican Committee,
lie ii a wprker rattier titan a talker, a
man of energy and ability, and well
deserves tlie compliment of a re-election.'"
OK lOI.ITICAL SIGNIFICANCE.
Tlie Greeley fever appears to be dy
ing out among the itemocrats. Tlie
three most liitliietitial KiMrs ot that
party the X. Y. World, Washington
Patriot aud Chicago Time are op
posed to Greeley under all circumstan
ce. Republicans apiear to prefer
"Unclo Horace" as tlie Democratic
candidate, as in tlie event of his nom
ination Gen. Grant will lie sure to re
ceive at least 4i third of the Iemocratic
support. Yoorhces' deteruiiued opjio
siiiou to Greeley, backed up by his
colleagues, Kerr, Xiblack ami Holmaii.
of Indiana, threatens, to disrupt that
party in the same manner as in 1SU0.
It is a noticeable tact that not one
Republican Representative has given
support to the Greeley programme.
Tht-y are unanimous for Graut and
Wilson. It is almost an impossibility
to find an ex-soldier of the Union ar
mies who is not in favor of his old com
mander; and iu the South the heavy
coioied to will be cast solidly fir the
deliverer of their race from bondage.
The Philadelphia correspondent of
tlie Xew York Herald, reporting the
proceedings of the Philadelphia Con
vention, gives this sketch of the noiui
natiou for the presidency :
Shelly McCullom, of Illinois, took
tlie platform, and, with great dclibera
tiun aud itiipressiveness, said :
Gentlemen ot the convention : On
liefialf of the great Republican party
of Illinois and that of the Union, in
tlie name of lilierty. of loyalty, of jus
tice and ot law ; iu the interest of econ
omy, good government, ol e.-ice and
of the pud rights of all, remembering
with profound gratitude his glorious
achievements iu the Held aud bis noble
statesmanship as Chief Magistrate ot
tins great nation, 1 nominate as Presi
dent of the United States, for the sec
obd term. Ulysses S. tirant.
A scene of the wildest excitement
followed his speech. The spacious I
. i i i.i. j.. . !
acatleiiiy was crowueii w tin sici i.-iiirs
in every part. Tlie vast assemblage,
from stage, paripiet, and tier upon tier
of galleries, rose, and a deafening
cheer shook the solid old walls of the
academy. A jH-rfect wilderness of
hats. cap, heads aud handkerchiefs
waved to and fro in surging masses.
- Tin-ee times three" shook the dome
fr n the thousands of voices. It was
a scene that, no pen can describe and
no artist's brush place upon canvass.
The band seemed to catch the prevail
ing cut hus'iasin and waved their Instru
ineuSsas though they bad been flag".
AmKl the cries of " music, music."
tiiey struck up Hail to the Chief."
and as the majestic strains of the air
came floating down fit mi the balcony
a life-size equestrian painting of Gen
eral Grant came down, as if by magic,
liiitng the entire space of the back
scene on the stage, and the enthusiasm
knew no bouuds.
In speaking of the announcement of
tlie vote, tlie reporter of the X. Y.
Times remarks :
Immediately after the vote of Wy
oming luttl been heard ami recorded by
tip? Secretary, dozens of individuals all
over the house, wild with enthusiasm.
cried and cried again, '"Cheers for
Grant ! three cheers for Grant ""' But
tlie great body of delegates responded,
"Xo.no; wait." Then the Chairman,
rising iu his place, said :
- It is a pleasure to the Chair to an
nounce that Ulysses S. Grant ha re
ceived 7i2 votes tlie entire vote ot
every State and Territory iu the Un
ion. As he resumed his seat the most tu
multuous and continued cheering
broke out. as a mighty echo to the
words. The whole convention aud the
spectators arose, waving hats anil hand
kerchiefs, aud tliere were continuous
cl hits during several minutes. As the
excitement somewhat subsided the
hand struck up, evidently in conse
quence of Sonus misunderstand'uig,
playlnj the air of a Grant campaign
song. This concluded, the tenorof tlie
song was sung Ivy gentleman stand
ing in the midst of the instruments,
and the chorus was taken vip by a large
choir of gentlemen stationed just by
the side of the band. The song was
most rapturously received. It was
a spirited campaign air. aud the sing
ers were loudly applauded. . After the
olieering Mibsiiled'tliere were loud cries
for the music of "John Brown," until
tlie band began to play it, tne whole
convention rising and singing it with
great enthusiasm. At this time the
excitement was intense, which culmi
nated when tlie band followed with the
stirring strains of "Yankee Doodle,'
and next the call for the "Battle Cry
of Freedom" was responded to by the
band, the audience again joining in
tiie chorus with a will.
Chase, of Indiana, was brought to
tlie platform aud sung the ''Red, White
and Blue," the band aud the audience
joining iu the chorus. The enthusi
asm would not be silenced until Church
followed with "Marching Through
Georgia." When Church sang tlie
words. "When the turkeys gobbled
and the sweet potatoes slid from tlie
ground," there were great, clieers from
the colored delegates, whose hearty
aoolause created a terrible roar of
laughter. The phrase "How the dar
keys hollered," referring to the excite
ment among the loyal olacks as Sher
man's army crushed through the refiel
heart on its way to the sea-coast,
hroue-ht from a colored delegate with
stentorian lungs a deliglflotl yell of
"Tliey ditl that, though. Which was
received witli roars of laughter.

From a Xew York Letter.
Tlie story of Tommy Nast's artistic
career is a little in-cuiiar. His fittlier
was a professional musician, and, when
I lirst knew Tommy, the old gentle
man was playing that extension brass,
sort of old-fa shioned horn they used to
have iu bands ;:i friend says it is called
a trombone), in the orchestra of Wal-
lack's old theater, corner of Broom and
Broadway, nt $10 a week. Xast'sseii
ior wauled Tommy to become a musi
cian, and, to that end, used to thrash
him with a leather strap most enthusi
astically and faithfully, iu order to
make him learn tho. eales on tlie vio
lin. Thomas, however, had a genius
lor drawing, and knew if. He used to
beg his father to permit him to become
an artist, to all of which the truly con
scientious old gentleman (now many
years dead) would reply with addition
al doses of strap.
At last young Thomas liecame ae
unainted with Bergliaus, now and for
more than a dozen years, one of Frank
Leslie's chief artist s, and to Bergliaus,
who was also a German, he eonlhled
all his woes. He showed his drawings to
l!erghaus and Sol Kytinge, who is one
of onr mof delicate "and fanciful Amer
ican draughtsmen, and who was at
that time with Leslie, mid they, seeing
tlwre was retilly something in tin- liy.
tla-'ii eleven year "Id. .-iUisi d him to.
continue iu his effort to vouvhue his
father that he omiM ehru more money
as nn artist than as it musician.
Tommy went home that night and
to the German parent, having come
home at 12 M. (midnight;, he thus re
"Father. 1 must lie an artist. If you
let ine learn to draw, in a year or
two I can earn twenty dollars u Tveek ;
aud, iu a lew years after that, 1 can
bring in from fifty to seventy-five dol
lar every week ; if you make me learn
music. I may slave all my lile, and I
shall very likely find myself at fifty
years old just where you are now, play
ing for ten dollars a week in some
body's band, liable to a diseliarge any
minute, and out of an engagement a
ipiarUa-of the year, even when things
are at their liest."
Wliether it wa the argument or tho
determination of young Xast to learn
to draw iu spite of the jiaternai bid
ding tliat carried the point, I know
nut ; certain it is. however, that the
nexl day. Tommy Xast entered Frank
Leslie's employ, and was assigned a
desk between IJerghaus and Eytine,
which two thorough artists and
amiable gentlemen gave Xast all the
regular instructions he has ever had.
'The young artist more than kept his
word; in less than a year he could
earn, not If-U. but thrice that, on Les
lie pajier alone, liesides making as
much more on outside work. His
father lived tn see that bis son was

home hi hundred dollars in gold every
