THE "JtKillTY I'OI.IIH AI, I5EVO-
Tlie Ok'koii Ilentltl .tfTeits ti set: :t
iniglity Politit-al Ili'voltition in pro
gress." Tin; evitlciicvs it st-ea of such
a revolution is the uiiumiuI re.-idincss ot
jieople to atjamloti tlie ties, prejudices
and obligations ot pitity for tlie pur
pose of uniting in a common puipii-e.
So far as tlie llernltl and its party is
concernetl, there may be iust now a
little more of readiness than usual to
abandon party tics and to tie to new
men and fresh expedients. That part' r
lias not, however, been remarkable, for
several years, for its devotion to any
particular set of principles or policies.
It has shifted positions at almost every
election tor twelve years, though al
ways retaining the old name. It has
now lain down in political whoredom
with a fcw renegade Kepublicaus ; and
the Herald calls that a 'mighty revo
lution.' But Iow is it ? Not even all tho
Democracy have consented to the pros
titution and abandonment of their
party. There is a considerable per
cent, of them who protest against the
right of the lfeUtimore Cwiventlou to
transfer theru like stock into tlie hands
of pxilitieal intriguers. Nearly all
those who accept the situation tin it
with many a grimace and retch of dis
gust. S far as we etu observe the
Held, the lA-Mnoeratic masses are sick,
and tiiey -consent to go for Greeley only
because there is no. option left. They
mast choose between Greeley, neutral
ity or Grant. Unwillingly and regret
fully, they choose neutrality or Gree
ley. Men who go into a contest in that
spirit nerer make a revolution. Mur
murersdo not fight with spirit, much
less wlfli f nthusiasni. Most of tlie lie
publicans who have renegaded think it
necessary to account to the people for
their upostacy with explanatory apolo
gies, s though they recognized the
fact tlust they are fighting against the
popular will. There is oarcely any
where 1 bold, positive and enthusiastic
attack. There is malevolence enough,
and rj&'rte enough of the freebooter's,
groed for spoils ; but that is not the
spirit f revolution.
Tlie Herald is profuse in quotations
from newspapers and politicians which
it clains as indicative of public senti
ment ; btit it is noticeable that most of
its quotations are from Democratic
sources, aud that the same authorities
are quotedoverand overagain. Many
of its statenuMits are anonymous, com
ing from it "reliable gentleman," or a
"late KepuWican," or a "noted politi
cian,1" or a "sagacious observer," etc.
This sort of evidence is easily mium
lactuwd ; it is cheap, and the people
take it at its true value. The Herald
itself is guilty of falsely representing
tlte writitueut ot its own city. It talks
of "enthusiasm," the "Greeley move
ment,"" tlie "growing sentiment in fa
vor ot Greeley," etc. The fact is in
relation to Portland, that the Republi
can clement which has gone ofl" to
Greeley is insignificant, not only in
numbers, but in character. No man
of any influence whatever has left the
Kepublican party to follow the Gree
ley gret!d-huiiters. It is rare to meet
even a Iiemocrat who will say posi
tively tlr.it lie will vte for Greeley.
Tlie enthusiasm, aud the Greeley club
organizations of which the Herald
talks are my ths, and the utterances of
the Herald merely lies, manufactured
of whole cloth. The positive Greeley
strength at Portland does not amount
to a corporal's guard ; nor tloes it at
Salem, or any other place in the State.
We heard prominent Iemocrats, at
Portland, tin other day, ollering to
bet considerable sums ot money that
Oregon will give Grant 2,000 majori
ty, and expressing the opinion that not
more than two or three counties in tho.
State would give majorities for Gree
ley. They know the representations
of the Herald to be unmitigated lies,
and have no hesitation in saying so.
If tlie Herald will openly ami palpably
lie about the political sentiment of its
own city, where its falsehoods are ev
er' day patent to everyliotly, how
much can it be believed when it speaks
of other sections ot the country ?
UBAX T M IW.
It is conceded on all hands that Ore
gon will go for Grant, the only differ
ence of opinion being as to tlie majori
tywhether 1,000, 2,000, or mop-.
There are probably not more linn two
or three counties that will cast maj or
ities against him. JSnt this di i "t
furnish any reason why Ki'puMicam
should thrust their hands in tin ir m k
ets and go to whistling, lntrad ofT
ganizing and taking proper prrcsiuri'.
against surprise. "Eternal vigilance"
is an excellent motto. Let us make It
ours, even though we feel that our u"
cess is assured. Grant and WiKm
clubs should be everywhere organised
and kept alive and lively. Let us go
into and carry on the campaign as
though under the necessity of making
a vigorous struggle. At present the
Democracy is demoralized and dis
gusted ; but they may not remain so.
More than any other party men, they
unreasouingly follow leaders. As the
campaign wears on, we have no doubt,
many ot them w-ho now revolt at swal
lowing Greeley, will yield and at the
word of arrogant eonnniind, gulp him
down. Republicans can and they
ought to make this such a victory as to
utterly crush and annihilate the oppo
sition. In this effort, we will have the
sympathy, if not the active co-operation
of a large number of Democrats
who are thoroughly disgusted with
tlieir leaders and who are determined
to show that they are not cliattels, to
be bought and sold, or given away by
the politicians. Now is the time to
make Oregon thoroughly, permanently
and reliably a strong Republican State.
To this end, organize everywhere,
your Grant and Wilson clubs.
We went to Portland a day or two
since, and while there, learned hodr
' and whence comes the Greeley enthu
siasm with which the Herald is so fre
quently rilled they go around to Mat.
Keith's and get most of it, at a bit a
glass. Dec isionallv, as the day wears
on, and tlie enthusiasm-mongers begin
to get into a state Of sublimated ethe
rialization, they go around to tlie Oro
Fino and take it at 2-bits a glass. Next
morning, tlie Herald Is all aflame with
enthusiasm and has the six or seven
Greeley men multiplied into a multi
The New York Herald says that not
less than 150,000 Americans will visit
Europe this year. One day last week
nine steamers sailed for the Old World
all loaded with passengers.
A FEW MATTERS AT IOKIXA5iI.
Among the r complaints one
hears upon filtering Portland is that
business is extremely dull. This is
partly true of retail bttsiness; but
wholesale trade is fairly active.
Wholesale dealers uever did a better
stunner's work than the- have done
this year. Tlie large Agricultural Im
plement houses lave made unprece
dented ales ol harvesting machinery ;
aiMl they have excelleiit prospects fiir
a fall trade in cropping implements.
Tlie number of Eas'ern wagons sold
this season, is positively astonishing.
The extraordinary imports liave made
lively business for tlie steamers ami
sailing vessels, one way at least.
Tlie West Side Railroad Co. lias rev
olutionized the appearance ot tilings at
North Portlaial. A considerable part
of Couch's J-akc has been tilled up,
new streets made, old ones raised and
planked, and a number of large and
fine buildings hare beeu Uiilt lu tliat
end of tlie city, during this season.
Among these is the Clarendon Hotel,
wluVh was 0eneti by Mr. lilackwell
July 1st. It Ls large, roomy, airy and
pleasant; conveniently situated near
tlie steamship and steamer landings,
and tlie railroad depots. Tho West
Sid.-; trains 4ii diructly in front of it,
aud tlie Oregon .t California R. R.
lands passengers just across the street
froia it. It will be a popular stopping
place for visitors troni tlie interior, on
either side of tlie Willamette,
Tins city,has built a large and tine
court bouse ami jail, this summer.
Auketiy's iuamcuse building designed
for a Market Place ami Theater, is
rapidly upproticliiiig completion. It
is the largest single building in the
city or north of San Francisco- Mr. J.
S. .Smith, formerly Congressman Irotn
Oregon, broke ground, on Monday,
for a brtuk, one hundred by two hun
dred feet in dimensions, having lronts
ou both Front and First streets. Mr.
II. L. Pittock is putting up a fine
brick just at the old ferry lauding at
the foot jof Stark street. The Masonic
Temple, iiilt last year, has receutly
been finished and occupied. It is a
magniiiceiit structure, outwardly, and
tlie interior fiui.-Ji corresponds with the
outer apj.anuice. There are probably
few fluer Lodge rooms if any, on the
Pacific cMst. Those portions ot the
city devatwl to residences have kept
eveu pace with the growth of the btti
Keal estate is rather dull of sale, not
for want of confidence in the perma
nent prosperity of the city ; but be
cause, while the spirit of speculation
was rite in 1 870-1, a great many jieo
ple invested far beyond their means,
giving mortgage security for large fu
ture payments which are now tailing
due, while the money market is un
wotitcdJy tight. A good many such
purelasers are being closed out, at sac
rifices. This, of course, lias a damp
ening effect upon buyers ; but owners
who are not in debt refuse to make
concession in prices, aud have full
faith in a not remote rally of the mar
ket. Politically, there Is but little stir at
present- Tlie greater part of political
talk is of the bantering and chatfing
sort. Grant men are jubilant ; Demo
crats disgusted aud waiting for some
thing to turn up. It is not uncommon
to hear in half an hour, a half dozen
of them swear profanely that they will
never vote for Greeley. The general
prediction is tliat tlie State will go for
Grant by not less than two thousand.
Ormt THE f-TVI.K OF THE HKKAl.K.
TlicCowRay "Lightning Bug," a
shintir Iioht in tlie Dismal Swamp
region, lias come out uproariously for
Greeley. It siys tliat not less than
200.000.000 otlier Utgs have started for
the Chapnaquack farm, and that they
mean business. The Dismal swamp
can be etdown for Greeley.
Timothy Tuginutton Titmouse who
never had any influence till now. with
any jntrty, has declared tliat he can
never live another term without a post
office. It is ix-rhsps needless to add,

Tilt JIAIIVKST H.VSCO.nK.
The fanners of the Willamette Val
ley arc jtt-t beginning the grain, har
vest. In the "loot-hill' regious, the
oat fields are ready for the reaper, and
we hear that some fields are already
cut. Wheat is not generally ripeenough
to harvest, though an occasional field
has been commenced. The unusually
warm weather of the last mouth litis
greatly accelerated the ripening pro
cess, and one of the greatest embar
rassments the farmers are likely to
meet with is the sudden ripening of all
grain, sooner than has been itsn.il. To
harvest the entire crop "iefore It shall
ripen enough to shell badly, win be
the greatest trouble of this harvest.
Happily, however, the fanners have
purchased, this season, au increased
number of harvesting ina-h'tnes, and
they are, therefore, in a meisuru pre
pared for the emergency. W lietlier la
borers can be procured hi imtfiueiit
numbers at a reasonable price is prob
lematical To stive the crop well the
harvest must lie "short, sharp and de
cisive;" that is it the present heated
term shall continue long. Alter all,
we incline to the opinion tliat farmer
will find it more economical to rusk
their harvest through in tlie shortest
possible time, even at a trifle greater
expense per day, than to allow it to
hang on for six weeks or two months,
as has always been the practice.
Grain, allowed to stand several tlays
after it is ripe enough, to cut, always
loses a considerable per cent by sliell
ing in the course ot handling and by
tlie depredations of squirrels, birds,
etc. Our farmers need to leam how
to make greater speed in harvesting.
As to the prospective yield of this
years crops we are not yet prepared
to judge. We know, liowever, tliat
all late sown wheat or oats, will be a
short crop; much of it, being less
than half an average. Oats sown in
February and March are, in all good
soils, well prepared, a good crop. So
ot wheat the early sown fields look
well ; heads good length, and fairly
filled. Tlie general observatiou is that
the wheat sown early last fall upon
summer-fallow, is far the best crop.
It has beeu less a fleeted by the unusu
al, early and long-continued dry weath
er, than any other. Another fact is
noticeable, this season : That deep
plowing, whether early or late, with
stands tbe drought, and all grain nowu
upon ground thus prepared promises
to mature and yield well. The season
has furnished two or three suggestive
lessons to farmers which they will do
well to heed : Early sowing in case
of a drought, and thorough prepara
tion ot the ground, always. Perhaps
we might sty, also, that drill-planting
is conclusively proved to be better tliau
the old-fashioned way of broadctt-st
sowing and harrowing-in.
The Department of Agriculture esti
mates the yield of wheat in the United
States, for lS72.at 220,000,000 bushris;
which is 10,000,000 less than last year,
aud (17,000,000 more than the year be
fore. The prospect is that the country
will have lood eiiotigh.and if the United
States is called upon for a large quan
tity of bread stuffs, our farmers will
have a chance to sell their products at
Some time ago Beriali Brown an
nounced his abhorrence ot tlie "Oregon
style" and Ins determination to lie a

no matter what the provocation. This
resolution led Beriah up the steeps of
high-toned journalism till he reached

every personal controversy which may
arise or he may ferment, whereby his
.services can gain recognition."
Even as history repeats itselt, so
great coincidences are constantly oc
curring. Bayard, of iJp.laware, stirs

The first number of " The Througb
Line," Col. W. W. Chapman's rail

It declares Its purpose to advocate all
railroad interests, but especially to be
devoted to the building of the Port

We sincerely hope it may accomplish
in that direction, all that it contem
plates. The party now moving heaven and
earth to beat Grant, combines tho
worst elements of the south, tbe scuta
of the north, the repudiators the dis
organizers, the moral jackals who
prey on grave-yards aud feed fat on

We have heard of anotlier Oreeley

"Patriotic sacrifice of personal feel
ing," Ls the way the Herald puts the
Democratic support of Greeley and
it calls tliat "enthusiasm." By the
same rule, funerals are excessively live

places of resort.
Andersonville, the place where the
boiies of thousands of Union soldier
prisoners enrich the soil, has hoisted a
Greeley flag tlie only flag that has
waved there since the black flag of Rein.-!
lion was reluctantly pulled down.
It is fitting.
Tlie Bedrock Democrat Is unques

agents, and the men who say this is
not tlie case are liars and horse thieves.
1 judge that on an average, every man,

ton of guano a year, in some shape or
otner wnetner as tne rarmer in .xew
York, Louisiana, Colorado, Poduck,
etc., in agriculture, or as Charles A.
Dana, for editorial articles. We thus
consume, in round figures forty mil
Jion tons of guano annually The ar
bitrary and revolutionary act which I
veto to-day would thus impose a tax
of $4,000,000 a year on our people.
With what effect? It would not stim
ulate tlie production of American
guano. American birds could not.
eompete with the pauper labor of birds
in debauched ami priest-ridden Cen
