The "civil service reform," as prac
tically put In operation by President
Grant, luu ferreted out a great many
ncoundrefe and brought the"! to con
dign punishment. Within tlie last
rear or two no less than fifteen de
faulters In the Custom's wrvW have
been hunted tkwu, and in mie ot tlie
cases tlie money stolen has been In
whole or part recovered. There are
one or two facts connected with tlx:
rim which are Interesting, because
they bear upon the charges of corrup-.
tion which Democratic newspapers
recklessly mouth ttbout. The Investiga
tions set on foot reveal the fact tliat of
these fifteen Customs defaulters, one
was appointed by Buchanan ; four by
Lincoln ; eiyht by Johnson ; and tiro
by Grant. Tlie defaulters appointed
by Johnson stole an amownt nearly
equal to all the others. The investiga
tions of official mUoondnct In other de
partments show the same relative per
cent, of dishonest meu appoiuted by
Johnson. The greatest mistake which
Grant ever made in this connection
was that he (ltd not make a sweeping
removal 'of Johnsons appointees, from
big to little.

lie din't used to be. But he has re
cently given unmistakable evidence
tliat he has the smouldering fires witlr
In him, somewhere; just -where or
how much, it may be difficult to say.
To put it mildly, we don't remember
having beard of anything more scln
tillatingly brilliant and strategically
inzeniou than a dodge which our
Kelly adopted at the Baltimore Con
vention. Kelly was there ; Kelly
was. It was the first time in two
year tliat lie had been anywhere, so
f.ir as public report goes. Being there.
Kelly conceived the thought of doing
something ; he did It. He just took
and spread himself all over that Con
vention. He made himself as numer
ous as the Smith family, and the Sec
retaries wanted to know, wlteu they
, called the roll. If everybody from Ore-
eon was Kelly. We don't wonder
that they wondered. The way ot It
was this : Kelly and Colby were tlie
ouly delegates from Oregon. There
were six elected. Colby liud one
vote : Kelly all tlie rest. But how to
vote 'em? Kelly was equal to the
emergency, lie just subdivided him
self Into Jits. K. Kelly, J. J. Kelly.
Joseph J. Kelly, Joseph B. Kelly and
Joseph II. Kelly. Tliat was the bril
liant thing which our Kelly did at
Baltimore. It Is . said that Greeley
relies Immensely on the Kelly family,
at large, and the Oregon branch, in
The following illustrates tlie spirit of
the supporters of Greeley at tlie South.
One of the papers which hoists tlie
names of Greeley and Brown, furnish
es tlie following as its platform :
White supremacy and repudiation!
Tlie Constitution of IStiO and the rights
- of States! This Is a white man's gov
ernment, made bv white men, for
white men, and their posterity forever!
Down with tlie Fifteenth Amendment!
Total repudiation of the monstrous
Yankee war debt ! that accursed 1111-
mnsf Iriitimml ImrrliMi ! nct'tiinul.ited bv
an unconstitutional mob, styling itself
a Congress, in the prosecution or an
unconstitutional crusade, for the ac-
. compllsliment of an unconstitutional
. and horrltTpurpose !"
It Is unquestionably true that the
nomination of Greeley has awakened
at the South much of just such spirit
. as Js exhibited In tlie above. Tlie un
. regenerated and unreconstructed reb
els have bceu warmed into life, and
they begin thus early to strike right
and left, like a copperhead in tlog
days. The election of Greeley would
revive Ku Kluxism and let lawlessness
loose, at the South.
Tlie Eugeue Guard, the only Demo
cratic paper now in existence in Ore
gon, adheres to its opposltiou to the
Greeley ticket, denies that it is a bolt
er, and charges the politicians ot the
Baltimore Convention with base rec
reancy to Democratic principles. It
says : They exceeded their authority
and betrayed the trust confided to '
them. And their acts no more bind
Democrats than the promise of Bene
dict Arnold to surrender West Point
. to the British, bound our revolutionary
fathers. It augurs ill for our country
when a slavish regard for party discip
line places the conscience and will of
the American people in the keeping of
The "StaaU Zeitung," the great
German paper of New York, says:
"The opposition under the leadership
of Greeley offers nothing tliat is calcu
lated to call out the Republican
strength and feeling of justice and mor
ality of tlie people. That opposition
bears too much tlie stamp of false pre
tense, and the people turn away
frou the swindle with disgust."
Now that Horace Greeley is tlie
Democratic candidate for the Presi
dency, we do not expect tliat the .New
York Tribune will liave a word to say
about Tammany frauds and roblieries,
or Democratic repeating at the polls.
It will, doubtless, take its cue from the
New York World and lwwl against
tlie Federal bayonets that have re
duced Democratic majorities in New
York city. A fellow feeling makes us

THE HAXD-BREADTH CXOIO.
The Baltimore Bolting Convention
headed by Bayard included two dele
i gates from New York. Flanders and
Van Allen; Duncan and Mnrreii or
Kentucky; Stokes of South Carolina
Peter Keyser of Indiaua; "Brick"
Pomeroy and others, all of whom
made violent speeches against Greeley.
It was subsequently announced tliat
Bayard had yielded and gone to Eu
rope "for his neaum- ana it was gen
erally thought that die louisVille con
vention, tticn appointed, would never
be held." "Brick" has. however, con
tiuued to "mlminate"' and bedrock
Democrats have continued to sulk and
growl and swear "by the Eternal
that they never will vote for Greeley.
It seems that tlie leaven Is working.
The dispatches of llm 2th Inst, con
tain this very soggrtlTe Item from
New York : "Barton Duncan, M. M.
Pomeroy, Bayard, of New Jersey,
Van Allen. New York, ami otlter
leaders of tlie straight Democratic
movement, held a private conference
at tlie New York Hotel, this afternoon,
to take steps to organize thrtmgbont
the Union," They report enthusiastic
responses from all quarters to tSte call
for the Louisville Convention in Sep
tember. They say full delegations
from all the States will be In aWend

rook Democrats will yet have a chance
to vote tor a candidate of tlierr-own
THE PRICE OF WHEAT.
We have seen lately a number of
predictions that wheat will be low
through the present harvest year in
Oregon. While this may be compara
tively true we do not coincide with the
views of those who look for very low
prices. Tlie Liverpool niarkrt remains
firm under European crop prospects
The latest information from the At
lantic States is to tlie effect that the
yield will lie below the animal average
Tha Poeific coast yield xvill unques
tionably be large perluvjis there will
be a larger surplus than ever before.
Advices from California state that
freights are scarce and high, and that
it will take a long time to move the
surplus of that State. There will
probably be no such scarcity of ton
nage, however, for Oregon, for the
reason that this year, as last, tliere
will be a considerable number of ves
sels coming into the Columbia river
with railroad material, all of which
will want oit going cargoes. Our mar
ket connections will not. therefore, be
with California, as In former times,
but direct with such foreign countries
as may present a demand. The move
ment of our crop will not depend upon
the movement of California s. The
price of wlieat at Liverpool will have
more to do with governing ours than
will the San Francisco quotations. We
think, alter a survey of tlie situation,
our farmers may calculate upon get
ting more than was predicted, a lew
days since, by tlie Oregonian sixty-
five cents. Tlie Bulletin's Agricul
tural editor puts the price at sixty-live
to seventy-five. We would not advise
farmers to hold for a large price ; but
we doubt tlie policy of selling at either
of those figures. We think there is
reasonable ground for the assumption
that more can be obtained. We will,
however, keep our readers posted in
regard to the foreign news, and they
can judge for themselves.
Verily, the "indications" which the
Herald invents, from day to day, are
extremely reliable ! Yesterday morn
ing it said editorially that Bayard
had taken a sober second thought and
that he is now supporting Greeley. In
the telegraphic dispatches of yesterday
morning, we find that' Bayard, Brick
Pomeroy and others had, the evening
before, bel'1 a conference at New York
for the purpose of organizing their
bolt, generally, throughout all the
States ; and they report most encour
aging advices in regard to the ap
proaching Louisville Democratic Con
vention. So it seems Bayard did not
go to Europe for his health,and that he
is preparing to make it very sickly for
The authoritative announcement is
made in the Farmer this week that the
concern has changed hands, Mr. A. L.
Stinson having sold out toS. A.Clarke
and D. W. Craig. The new proprie
tors propose to make it distinctively a
Farmer's paper, but will also give a
summary of current news and pay
some attention to literature. Its tone
in relation to the railroad interprise now
in progress in the State, we are glnd to
see, is more liberal than It was under
the late management, though tlie edi
tor very properly says the paper will
jealously guard the rights of the people
whenever corporations or capital shall

a name mpre rapidly than any woman
on the Pacific coast, declares in a

the "New Northwest," for Grant and

gaged in the lecture field. The follow
ing dispatch gives a report of her :
San Josf, July 2o. Mrs. Duniwny,
of Oregon, is lecturing in the Opera
Hoine this evening, under the auspices
of the Tanners, on the political situa
tion and Horace Greeley. She is lis
tened to by quite a large andience ol
ladies and gents, ann tier severe curs
upon Greeley are enthusiastically ap
plauded. The N. Y. Tribune has found a ne
gro in Maryland who won't vote for
Grant and It makes the finding tbe
occasion for a very hilarious cackle
and a triumphant refutation of
the Republican claim that "the
colored voters are solid for Grant."

now on excessively thin soup.

The arrivals from afar have been of
considerable importance, embracing

staple articles of general merchandise ;
anil although imports during the cur

liecit no commensurate improvement
in the volume of business. Importers
generally are disposed to complain of
dull times ; they make comparatively
few cargo sales as in days of yore ;
they sell tew entire invoices, even of
staple goods. In most eaes purchas
ers preler to buy just goods enough to
meet, their current trade wants no
speculative spirit abroad iu the com

are actually forced in self-protection to

Nothing could touch iny heart more

The Indians have gone to the Wei
sr. over a tliocisaud strong, where they
expect to UMvt several hundred Cuta
tillas. They have a good supply of
arms, many ot which are Henry rifles.
We anticipated this move of the Indi
5ins. gave the warning in due time,

nett and Major Downey last week met
" these Indians fifty miles east of here,
on Willow creek, and on their return
the Gotiernor said they bad promised
to go back to Camas Prairie which
statement we published last week. It
now appears that they did not intend
to go back, but immediately broke up
their camp and started to Weiser.
They are scattering along slowly ;
Jtaniiack Jim with one bind. (.'apt. or
Boise.lim with another, Deinpsey wiih
another, and I)eudoy, we understand,
bringing up the rear. When they all
j;el lo the Weiser thev will number
1,000 to 1.200. and with the Umatilla
will probably aggregate 2,000. as stated
last week. We hope there will be no
trouble, but we do not look iqioii so
formidable a movement of armed In
dians around the Weiser settlement as
safe, or a thing that ought to fie per
mitted. The excuse; that these Indi
ans want to trade rolies to the t'ma
tillas for horses is not sufficient. They

The Washington Star says : The

Conductor pulls strap, stops car,
dumps trunk on the avenue, start utr,
and after going some two squares a)
proaches the ytiung man, who was still

an angry mood says : "Now, 1 have

to do about it ?"
Y. M. (coolly) Well. I don't pro

At this juncture a portly "erman

A West Virginia paper says : " The

collar, and lies without stint; who
plunders the living and vilifies the

and a known liar, says tie does not run
his paper on money attained through
a dead man's estate. We hurl the
lying. insinuation in his face, and as
sert, ami can prove. If we should take
.tlie trouble, that lie has swindled or
phans and widows, the living, and de
scendants of tlie dead ; that lie is a

bundle of ulcers gone to seed ; a dead
lieat, black-mail swindler, and is only
not a cut-throat ami an assassin because
his cowardly and skulking nature will
not let him be.
It takes monev to run a newspaper
as well as any other business, and no
paper succeeds financially tliat carries
on a dead-head system. Any mention
ot tbe people's affairs they wish to see
