CUNVKJ.TION AT MIlLAilliXl'UlA, JUKE
6, IS? i.
The Republican party of Uie United States
assembled in National Convention in the city
of Piulaik-lphia, on Uie Rib and 6th days of
June, lt'A again declares its faith andap
jieals to Its history and announces its position
upon the questions beliire the country.
first -During eleven years of supremacy
t lias accepted with grand courage the sol
emn duties of Uie tune. It suppressed a gi
gantic rebellion; emancipated 4,uou,uousluves;
ilecreed the equal citizensliipol all and estab
lished universal suil'rage. Kxhibltlng iinpar
jilleied magnanimity, it criminally punished
no man for political oUenses, and warmly
welcomed all who proved their loyalty by
obeving the laws and dealing justly with their
neighbors, it has steadily decreased, with a
iirm hand, the resultant disorders of a great
war, and initiated a wise policy toward the
Indians. The Paciilc Railroad, and similar
Vast enterprises, liavebeen generously allied
.and successfully conducted. The public lands
are free I v given to actual -settlers; immigra
tion is protected, encouraged, and the lull
acknowledgement of the naturalized citizen's
rights has been sec ured from European powers
tlon and the national" credit has lieen susuiin--d
under estraonUnary burdens, and new
tsiixts have been negotiated at lower rates.
The revenues have been carefully collected
and honestlvapplied. Despite! he annual larve
reductions from the rates of taxation the pub
lic debt has lieeu reduced during Grant's
presidency af the rate of one hundred mill
ion dollars per vear. A great financial crisis
has been avoided 'and peace anil plenty pre
vail throughout the land. Menacing foreign
siilUcultiea have been peaceiully and honora
bly com prom ised, and the honor and power
of the nation has been kept high throughout
the world. This glorious record of the past
4s the party's liest pledge for the future. We
believe the people will not Intrust the Gov
ern to anv partv or combination of men com
jxwed of those who chiefly have resisted every
step in this beneficial progress.
Second -Complete libertv and exact equali
Jtv in the enjovment of all civil, political and
,p'ubiic rights should be established and etlVct
sutlly maintained throughout the Union, by
eBicleul and appropriate Slate and Federal
legislation. K eh her the law or adminis
tration should adinit of any discrimination In
respect to ciUaens, by reason of race, creed,
-color, or previous condition of servitude.
Third-The recent amendments to the Na
tional Constitution should be cordially sus
tained, because they are right ; not merely
tolerated because they are law; and should
die carried out according to tlielr 8irlt by ap-.
proprinte legislation, Uie enforcement ofwhlch
can lie safely trusted only to the party that
secured Uie' amendments.

AIX A ROUT
Vluit"i in n name? Many of tlio
Democratic scribblers set'iu to think
there is much. For nearly four years
thpy have lost flesh and sleep on ac
count ot tlie name Ulysses S. Grant,
which they insist ought to be Hiram
Grunt. Xow they are fretting them
selves to shadows about Henry Wil
son. They don't like tho, name and
insist tlmt the bearer of it is not the
owner and that lie is really Jeremiah
Colbaitb. We don't know what can
oe done iu tlie premises. AV'e are
quite uncertain wliether these critical
gentlemen would be any better pleased
with the personnel of the Philadelphia
ticket it we were to consent, unani
mously, to print, write and speak
them, Hiram Grant aud Jeremiah
Alter all, Hiram Grant would be
tlie same man who went crunching
through the bones of the rebellious
Democracy, till the rebellion was
ground to dust ; and tlie same who as
President has thoroughly enforced the
laws; faithfully collected the taxes,
and disbursed tlie reveuue with econo
my ; caused tlie national debt to be
paid offat the rate of nearly one' hun
dred million dollars per annum ; re
duced the taxes iu like proportion;
maintained the dignity ofpur own aud .
the respect of other nations ; reformed
the civil service and Indian system ;
secured to every man an untrammeled
ballot without regard to race or color,
etc Seriously, would this man, as
Hiram Grant suit the Democratic
grumblers any better than as Ulysses
8. Grant? We fear not. We are sat
isfied with and proud of tlie man ; and
we wouldn't give two straws for tlie
difference between Ulysses S.. Hiram
or Agamemnon, or Jeptha or Jim.
We go for the man. Grant. Ditto
TITE LATE LABOR KTBIKEN.
Most of the strikes of mechanics, ar
tisans and laborers, are at an end ; and
most of them have ended in the usual
way the strikers have been compelled
to yield and go to work upon the old
terms. The hiitory of these and simi
lar contests between capital and labor
Is an old one, and lull ot instances
where those wh brought on the war
weie worsted. They are wars gener
ally founded upon some wrong but
mainly instigated by violent and in
temperate appeals to passion or prej
udice. The leaders usually liave little
to lose ; the followers are invariably
the principal sufl'erers. Vith an al
most unbroken record of disaster the
experience of strikes in all parts of the
world to teach men what is wise,
they constantly refer again aud again
to their repeated failures in the hope
to win succes. These wars of labor
ers as a class against capitalists are
folly and madness. Capital, though it
may lose most, can withstand the
siege longer than the besiegers can
possibly keep their forces together.
The late strikes iu New York City
alone, have cost the workingmen near
ly two millions of dollars, we see it
stated; aud their employes nearly
three millions. The practical results
in cuius to tlie laborers, are scarcely
wortli mention. A very few have ob
tained increased wages ; but the
masses, after a period of suffering liave
gone to work at tlie prices from which
they revolted. We sympathize sin
cerely with the workingmen, and wish
that the result could have been differ
ent ; but experience has demonstrated
"over and over again that strikes are
not tlie phiiosoplcal key to a solution
of the labor question.
One of the principal charges brought
by the Democracy against Grant, is
tliat he Is centralizing the powers of
tlie government. This is the old
Democratic charge, preferred against
Lincoln and the Republican party
wheu Democracy was so intensely an-ti-centralizing
as to drift into au at
tempt at disintegration, to wit, the
Rebellion. They have never forgiven
Grant for his part in failing the at
tempt, and will never forget or for
give the centralizing force that kept
the States together in one country.
The charge now conies from the same
spirit which declaimed against centra
lization in 1361-5.
But how is it that Democrats can
bring this charge consUintly against
Grant, and yet propose to support
Greeley for his successor? Greeley was
always the strenuons advocate of the
extremest centralization views. Every
body will recollect how, in tlie begin
ning of the war, he urged tlie use of
such absolute powers by the President
as even the most radiatl of men halted
at. He subsequently approved all the
laws enacted by Congress which Dem
ocrats denounced, with tlie extremity
of bitterness, as centralizing, despotic
and utterly unconstitutional. Show
us a singl act of the Republic;! n party
which the Democracy has denounced,
and we will show that Horace Gree
ley lias at one time or another, sup
ported it. -nd yet Democrats fling
up tlieir iiats tor ureeiey ana ran
against Grant, though tlie former is
tattooed all wer, to the extreme of
Dolly Vardenism, with an ineffacible
record of the very things of which they
falsely accuse the latter.
THE T1I AT HUBBARD.
We have a somewhat lengthy aud
detailed account of the celebration of
the 4th of July at Hubbard's, in this
county too lengUty for a matter of
Uiat soil, far our lumns. Our cor
respondent says a salute of thirty-seven
guns was fired at sunrise. Tlie exer
cises commenced at 11 a. m., consist
ing of music by the Oregon City Brass
Band ; reading of tlie Declaration by
Mr. Joseph Sawyer; Oration by Clias.
E . Warren, Esq., of Oregon City ; a
brief address by Dr. lingers ; songs by
a number of young ladies ; a proces
sion formed by Marshal, John Duntek;
another salute of thirty-evei guns ; a
dinner in the grove ; toasts and music ;
spirU during the , afternoon; and a
daiKlng party at night. The affair
was exceedingly pleasant and credit
able to our neighbors at Hubbard's.
The best motto of the campaign is
that Of Glenn W. Scofield, of Warren :
'We are Ior !the man that whaled,
against the man that bailed Jefferson
A, malignant paragraphist says that
Andrew Johnson will aid Geu. Grant's
cause in Tennessee by stumping the
State against him this fall.
QUALIFICATION or VOTER.
Wc are uilVrmed that Judge Thayer
liis held, in a contested election case iu
lane county, that the law approved
October 29, 187U, so far as it under
takes to prescribe tlie qualification of
voters iu Oregon, Is unconstitutional
ajid void. Tha sectiou referred to is
as follows :
Section 1. All permits qualified to
wte, by the Constitutiflu of tlie State
ef Oregon, in Article IU shall be en
titled to vote at all elections iu this
State ; Provided, That all iiersons. in
cluding tlwse navigating tlie high seas,
t the rivers of Oregon, soidier in thr
service of this State, or tlie United
States, and students attending semin
aries of learning, and laborers on rail
roads and public works, shall vote in
tlie county and precinct wbere thev
have a bona Jide residence of nlnetj'
Our information Is to tlie effect that
Judge Thayer holds that tlie Constitu
tion alone prescribes the qualifications
ef voters and tliat.tltat instrument gives
the Legislature only tlie power to ;
nUte ihe manner of holding elections,
etc, and to pass laws to prevent bri
bery and other improper influences.
Tlie Legislature has no power to pre scribe
any qualification of a voter. The
Custitution jrovklei that any white
nixie citizen ot tlie age of twenty-one
years or upwards, who has resided in
the -State for $ix mouths next preced
ing tl election, etc, may vote. Tlie
only further provision iu the Constitu
tion, affecting sueh: person's right to
vote, is that be shall vote in tlie pre
cinct iu which be resides, for county
ofRoers, in any county for State offi
cers, aud in any county of a Congres
sieual District, for Member of Con
gress. The holding of the Court is that
the Ceustitution intends these as the
only restrictions as to residence to be
put upon the rlglitof any citizen to
vote- The law of 1S70, going further,
is in violation of the Constitution, and.
Tlie case of contest is that of K. P.
HcnxJerwn, for the office of Treasurer
of Lane county. By the rejection of a
number of votes of men who either
were ou electiou day employees on the
railroad, or had been such within nine
ty days next preceding, Henderson
was beaten thirty-one- votes by Dent,
his opjMMient. He brought suit and set
up his right to liave the rejected votes
counted, under the provisions of the
( 'ou-iiJution, aud alleging tlie uncon
stitutionality of the section, we have
quoted, of the law of 1870. We have
not heard anything of the result of
the suit, except as to the law question,
HORACE UaUKEI.EY OS 4 KANT.
If all that Horace Greeley and the
Xew York Tribune have said about
Grant, were collected and published,
the matter would make a large volume
and would afford a clear and irrefuta
ble vindication of the President from
all the charges now brought against
him by the Democrats, the Tribune
and Horace Greeley couibiued. The
"what's the matter" with Greeley,
Gratz Brown, Trumbull & Co. may
be now well described by quoting from
Horace Greeley ot June, 1S08. He
theu had this to say :
"Upon Gen. Grant's accession to the
Presidency a number of those who had
supported" his election, with some who
hud not, sought office at his hands or
expected him to bestow it unasked.
He was unable to gratify their aspim
tious. Their lamentations mingled with the
howls of tlie disappointed, making a
doleful dissonance, whereof tne tne on
ly meaning deducible runs thus : "Gen.
Graut is found wanting his adminis
tration is a failure '.'
Failure ? how? in what? Have we
not peace and plenty in the land? Is
notour flag displayed and respected
on every sea? What foreign foe mo
lests or threatens us? Who fears in
surrection at home or invasion from
abroad? In which of the thirty-six
States are the masses wanting work,
Consider our financial condition.
Xearly every State and municipality

men tor the war, while the national
debt has been reduced nearly thirty
millions iu tlie four months that Gen.
Grant has had his hands ou the helm.
The public exienditure is falling off
on every side, while tlie revenue is up
to high water mark.
Yes, Gen. Grant lias tailed to grati
fy some eager aspirations, and has
thereb- incurred some intense hatreds.
The-m will not and do not fail ; aud his
administration will prove at least
equally vital. We shall liear lamenta
tion after lamentation over his failure,
from thoe whose wish is father to the
thought ; but the American people let
them pass unheeded. Their strong
arms bore him triumphantly through
the war and into the White House,and
they still uphold and sustain him.

A bedrock Democrat who had been
herinitizing for four months went into
Portland the other day, and falling in
with an old bedrock Democratic friend,
inquired who was to be tlie Democratic
candidate for President this year. His
friend told hint that Horace Greeley
would unquestionably be the man ;
whereat the hermit fell to cuslu' in
tlie mo-t fearful terms. He cussed,
and cussed, and cussed, and finally,
with the lmgest disgust of his life on,
mounted his horse and rode out of tlie
city iu a blue streak ot profanity.
Multnomah has. unquestionably, one
Democrat who still adheres to the bed

We learn that the Oregon & Califor
nia Stage Co. has made a proposal to
the Postmaster General to carry the
mails between Portland and San Fran
cisco, iu three days, tor the sum of
$30,000 per annum additional to the
pay now provided by contract. Such
reduction will be an important im
provement in the mail facilities on this
route, and all business men will unite
in recommending the Department to
accept tlie Stage Co.'s offer.
The entire continent of Xorth Amer
ica, according to Sir Charles Lovell,
will be washed into the ocean in 4,500,

see the necessity of making timely
preparations for the diastrous event.

We supjMve it will lie admitted that
the papers reflect public seutitneut
pretty well, however much or little
they may have to do in creating it. We
liave here a few indicators :
The Chicago Times, (Democratic)
admitting that the endorsement of
Greeley is a foregone conclusion, pre
dicts a defeat for him in 1S72 equal to
that of General Scott in 1S52.
The Xew York Times says of the
Greeley ticket in Xew York: Tho
strength of the ticket is now less than
it was immediately alter the Cinciu
nati Convention. In case of its en
dorsement at Baltimore, it will prob
ably gain somewhat ; In no event will
it attract as many Republicans as it
will repel Democrats. Tlie reports,
agree, also, that netrly all of Mr.'
Greeley's Republican strength conies
from the disaffection promoted by Sen
ator Fen ton, and that it is confined al
most entirely to the politicians. The
farmers of the State especially repudi
ate the belt, and are solid for Grant
The Louisville (Ky.) Ledger (Demo
cratic) acknowledging the probability
of Greeley's indorsement by tlie Balti
more Convention, says : "While there
may be 500 Greeley Republicans iu the
State, there are probably 20,000 Dem
ocrats who will not vote fbr him."
A late issue of the New York World
ays : "There are hundreds of IhoiN
sands of Democrats who cannot be in
duced to vote for Greeley; and his
uomination at Baltimore will be au
act of supreme folly, unless lie can
bring over to our party strong Repub
lican reinforcements ; and (here is as
yet no evidenee that he can bring one
Kepublican voter for every ten Demo
crats that so utterly absurd a nomitia
lion will disgust and drive away."
How the Republicans go is indicated
by the following from the Milwaukie
isentinel : "Some idea of tlie loss of
circulation that lias attended the Chi
cago Tribune's recent bolt, may be
gathered from tlie instance at Baraboo,
iu this State. Before the Cincinnati
Convention the Tribune had 100 sub
scribers at that village, but since
it came out for Greelev tliey have
fallen oil to less than nine. It lias
met with corresionding losses at hun
dreds of postotlices in the West, and
mill continue to lose until it gets down
to a strictly Democratic basis."
In the whole State of Xew York
lliere are only four Kepublican jour,
nils that advocate the Chappaqua
jhiksopher's pretensions to tlie Presi
dency. One of the lour is the philo
soplter's own paper. In Pennsylvania
tlicre are only five Democratic jour
nals that advocate Greeley, and not
one Kepublican paper. In Michigan
Jtliere are only four out of the thirty
two Democratic journals that swallow
Greeleyisni, and perhaps one or two
obsoue Republican concerns.
NCIIOOI, IS Ol T.
The Baltimore Convention having
voluntarily abandoned the Democratic
organization for so its action is un
derstood, by Democrats everywhere,
even though it formally appointed a
Xational Executive Committee the
individual members ot tlie Democratic
party are free to go where they please.
The politicians and thimble-riggers of
the party, will go for Greeley,of course,
willing for tlie bare eliauce of even a
modicum of Presidential patronage, to
violate every profession of principle
and to abandon the political friends
who helped them to climb the ladder
ot notoriety. But the Democrats who
are honestly Democrats ; wIhj believe
in the tenets of the old part ; and
whose conduct is not regulated by the
merest considerations of expediency or
spoils wliat will they do, or where
go? We believe there are huudreds ot
thousands of them in tlie United States
who cannot lie induced to vote for
Greeley on the considerations which in
fluence the politician. Of these t he
larger proportion perhaps, will not
vote at all ; but many of them finding
the choice to lie between Greeley aud
Grant, will vote for the latter.
However Democrats may dispose
themselves in this campaign, the fact
is clear and indisputable that the Dem
ocratic party is dissolved ; there will
never be another Democratic Xational
Convention. Defeat iu the coining
election will make it not only imprac
ticable, but to the leader.?, undesirable.
Victory will none the less have the
same effect, the leaders, in that case,
having the attraction of patronage to
keep them with the Administration,
wliatever polilical course it may bike.
Viewed from any stand point, the con
clusion is inevitable that the party is
dissolved. "School's out. :" the mas
ter has disappeared ; and now, where
are the pupils going? Reflection must
convince them that the election of
Greelev- will not result in giving theui
a iarty organization any more accept
able than is the present Republican
lrty. They will still be adrift. Re
flection will probably lead most honest
iJeraocruU Id"- conclude that as they
liave no candidate and no platform,
they have no occasion or desire to vote
at. all. And so the aggregate vote for
Greeley will erry him no nearer to an

executive committee whose duty It
will be to take frequent note of tho
conditiou of tlie carcass, and to make
hucIi disposition of it as shall seem to
be necessary, at any time. .
For several years, the deceased who
was once ratlter a thriving, respectable
person, had been leading excessively
dissolute aud disreputable course ;
liad suffered misfortune, defeat, pover
ty, starvation and debauch. Toward
the last, the friends of better day hav
ing fallen away, the poor old creature
sunk Into confirmed habits of buni
uierlsm, ready to strike hands with
any political bilk or buzzard who
might pro'ioe so "stand treat." With
out fortune or occupation, character or
friends, it w;ts. a fit subject for tlm
public morgue, and that is where it
1ms gone. Mo inquest.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 1872.
. We shall see some rare spectacles
now. Kor instance : There are Miller,
Grover ' Co. wiio were once so
staunchly Democratic that they were
willing to see the Union go to perdi
tion rather than give up one jot of
what thfty called Democracy ; having
failed as rebels to beat Grant, and hav
ing ua prospect, as Democrats, to beat
Graut, they are now ready to not only
abandon Democracy but even their
party organization aud go for the most
radical and erratic Republican all to
beat Grant and get at tlie public crib.
Abstinence (from public cribbing)
is a most wonderful reformer r some
men's principles. , .
The Chicago Times publishes figures
to show that should only ten per cent,
of the Democracy refuse to vote for
Greeley, bo would get only eighty
three electoral rotes, at the most. And
it adds : "Any man who thinks that
not more tliau ten. per cent, of the De
mocracy would refuse to vote for him,
is a blockhead." ;In Jiis State, very
nearly one-third of the Democracy will
refuse to vote for Greeley, while not a
few will vote for Grant rather than
Greeley. We look upon it as certain
that Grant will carry this State by not
less tliaw 2.1X10 majority.
