such a tremendous rush from Grant to

The business men of the country, a
a rule, are In favor of Grant. The
followins, from the Trade Circular of
Thomas J. Pope & Brother, expresses
thu views ot this large and influential
class: "The nomination of Mr. Gree
ley had a depressing effect on bus
iness, and has tilled the minds of finan
cial men with tlie alarm and apprehen
sion for the affairs of next season,
should he be unfortunately elected.
His well-known . "on to Richmond'
measures specie 'payments letting
go all tlie reserve and currency in the
Treasury, and declaring by act ot
Congress or by proclamation a return
to specie payments next day ; his
hatred, so vltuperatively expressed, of
the trading classes : his association
with Tweed and the deposed Rin
leaders here, all points hi his success
to disaster and to the complete dis
organization of socletv disorganiza
tion being his pet doctrine, and "what
lie knows" of it his favorite practice.
A PABTT or DEAD BEAT.
The Opposition is made up of "dead
beats." The old secessionists, the
rebels of the war, who constitute lt-
Southern and most enthusiastic wing,
are tlie dead beats of rebellion. Tlie
regular Democracy, that furnishes the
main armv of the Opposition, is a po
litical dead beat of the first magnitude.
The soreheads, those who in the Re
publican iarty have tried every trick
to obtain places and owing to their in
competency or knavery have failed.
are the office-seeking dead beats. Xea r-
ly every outcast from the society of
gentlemen, nearly ever' unmitigated
swindler who borrows money from the
unwary on fale pretenses with no in
tention of ever paying it,' the habitual
dead beat tliat Infests every neighbor
hood of the land. Is a noisy supporter
of Greeley. Tlie anything-to-beat-
Grant opposition Is essentially a party
of Dead Beats.
FEK1IAPH ME MISTAKE.
Under the bead of That Index,
tlie Benton Democrat. says:
"The Salem Statesman said, a short
time prior to the election in North
Carolina, that "if that State went Re
publican. It would be a sure index to
tlie result In November, and will not
only upset the basis of Greeley esti
mates, but go far towards producing a
reaction against the conglomerate
Presidential ticket." It did not go
Republican, and after the intelligence
was received that It had gone Demo
cratic, that paper didn't say anything
more anout the index, etc.
J. he state or JN ortn Carolina aid go
Republican ; the result, as such, i i
sure index to the result in November
it does upset the basis of the Greeley
estimates ; and it trill go far toward
producing the reaction aforesaid. All
of which we commend to the thought
ful consideration of tlie Benton Demo
crat, under tlie impression tliat, that
paper is probably laboring under some
slight mistake. Perhaps it has been
reading the Herald's "specials."
The Herald thinks it an outrage
that two white meu signed bail in
North Carolina tor several negroes ar
rested on a charge of assault upon two
Greeley negroes, and sees iu this act an
- intention on the Dart of Grant to shield
the guilty and override the popular
will nt tlie ballot-box. If the fool
killer should come to Oregon, there
would 8on be a vacancy in the cdito
rial chair of the Herald.
Hon. G. W. Julian, of Indiana, is
in great distress of mind concerning
the nepotism of President Grant
turns out that Julian, with a patron
age ot 300 in his district, put five rela
tives in office. Grant, with a patron
age of 60.000, has put thirteen rela
tlves In office. Julian's nepotism
therefore just five hundred timed
greater than Grant's.
Nearly nil tlie interior Deraocntic
papers claim North Carolina as Demo
cratic Really tliese cliaps ought to
exchange with some dally newspaper
or. werhaw. it wouki be better still If.
like the ller tld, they could get relia
ble special" tlisp.-itc.lics from San
Tim now Congressional apportion
ment give North Carolina eight in
stead of seven Congressmen. This
gain has fallen, in the late election, to
the Republican side. Before, they had
but two of seven, and now they have
throe of eight.
A. A. Sroitli, of Eugene, who has
been long unfortunate In tlie matter of
getting an office, has concluded, it is
said, to go for Greeley, lie is accom
panied in hi jotir:iey through tlie wil

IS UBEELEY A STATESMAN T
Tlie other night we lieard it stated
nt the Greeley club meeting, that Hor
ace Greeley is a statesman ; and be
cause he Is a statesman, the speaker
would Hf.prwt Kim. lie said Greeley
was the'gl'etftest living journalist and
that a great oirnalist Is necessarily a
SRrfetfrnsfi1: because to be & great jour
nalist or a statesman requires that the
matnsiitil know all the history of his
owti'ewintry, the history of all coun
tries and all times; to know all about
his own country and otlier countries,
etc.; and, It was asserted, such knowl
edge Is what makes a statesman. We
thought this a novel definition of a
statesman, but we attributed whatever
was queer in it to the speaker's want
of time. "Want of time" precluded
the production of proofs, as well as the
giving of clear, analytical definitions.
Greeley might have all the knowl
edge specified by this speaker, and be
a statesman, or he might have it all
and be a visionary fool, or he might
not have naif of it and still be a states
man. To know history is not to be a
statesman any more than to know
arithmetic Is to be a statesman.
Though knowledge must unquestion
ably be verv useful to a statesman, its
possession does not necessarily give a
man that quality or character. To be
a statesman a man must understand
the art ot governing ; know how, not
only to control, but to take wise ad
vantage ot circumstances, so that the
result of an action shall be for the good
of the people or to strengthen the Gov
eminent; the statesman must have
wisdom with knowledge, firmness with
wisdom, steadiness of purpose with
magnanimity, conservatism with cour
How many of these qualities and
combinations has Horace Greeley ;
Knowledge enough he has, undoubt
edly; but beyond that, what? It will
not be denied that he has been a mere
changeling in opinion, in nearly every
matter except that of a high proteetu-e
tariff. He was one ot the leaders of"
that class of politicians who utterly de
nled tlie doctrine of States rights and
advocated a strong i-entralized Gov-
eeument ; yet the moment the South
ern States appealed to arms in support
of their ideas of State rights, Horace
Greeley declared iu favor ot lettinj
them go. not only suddenly abandon
ing the principles he had held, but also
ignoring the ruinous policy of consent
ing to such a separation a separation
that niut have led to certain segrega
tion ot the remaining States, the utter
dissolution of the Government, and in
terminable broils and dissensions
anions; the numerous petty Govern
ments that might arise on the ruins of
the grand old Union of all the States.
This was the courage of a craven and
the wisdom of a fool.
Then when the jieople of the Uni
ted States had decided that the Union
should not be divided. Horace Gree
ley was the loudest of nil to incite
an excited people to acts of blood, pil
lage, devastation, and the visit of ex
treme retribution. This was the act
of a frotny braggart arid changeling.
While still our soldiers were but poor
ly armed, comparatively destitute of
military experience, almost wholly Ig
norant of tlie physical difficulties lying
before them, uncertain whom to trust,
Greeley inaugurated his famous dog
matic cry of "On to Richmond," de
manding that our armies should
march at once ujion the rebel capital.
Perhaps not anotlier man, certainly
no military man, was prepared to un
dertake such an enterprise, and sulise
quent events proved that compliance
with Greeley's demand must have re
sulted disastrously. At all events, be
had not a particle of military or other
knowledge or experience upon which
to base his demand. This, then, was
the act ot an inconsiderate, rash mad
man. In one of the very darkest hours ot
the war, when the rebels presented
almost an unbroken front from the
seaboard to the Mississippi ; when
their emissaries were thick among
our own people and along the Canada
border ; when their allies of the North
were banded in secret polit ical leagues,
contemplating conflagrations of North
ern cities, counter-revolutions at the
North, involving the destruction ot
our armies then in the Southern
States, and the overthrow of the Un
ion Government ; at such a time as
this, Horace Greeley, without war
rant from our Government, went to
Niagara upon tlie invitation ot irre
sponsible tools of the Confederacy, to
connive, if not to treat, for peace
peace which, under the then existing
circumstances, was equivalent to a
concession of all the rebels demanded,
and disgraceful humiliation it not
ruin to our own Government. This
was the act of a silly, nusehevious in
termeddler, not to characterize it by
any severer name.
Upon the withdrawal of our armies,
at tlie conclusion of the rebellion,
though Mr. Greeley had been an origin
al advocate of the emancipation of the
slaves, he began to clamor for univer
sal amnesty for the rebels. This if it
bad been granted 'vould have been a
base abandonment of the blacks to the
oppressions, injustice and outrage, to
which tlie still maddened late masters
would have subjected them. Subs(!
quent events have sufficiently proved
the wisdom of the Government in
withholding immediate amnesty. This
act of Greeley's was, therefore, not
only ill-directed magnanimity toward
the rebels, but absolute treachery to the
An examination of Mr. Greeley's
financial vagaries will be sufficient to
satisfy most business men that at all
events lus is not a statesman or a safe
adviser in financial matters. The peo
ple had hardly got settled down In
their homes and business after the
close of the war when Greeley began
to clamor in his dictatorial and arro
gant way for "specie payments." The
country had an immense paper circu
lation and very little coin ; in most ot
the Eastern States the sight of coin
was a rarity. The banks liad little or
none. The U. S. Treasury liad com
paratively little. The entire coin of
the United States would have scarcely
transacted the business of a week ; no
where in tho Eastern States would it
have sufficed for a day. The resump
tion ot specie payment would have
broken down the Treasury and the
banks paralyzed business aud brought
on a general financial crash and wide
spread min, beside bearing the value
of our national securities in all the mar
kets of the world. Fortunately the
administration gave no heed to
Greeley's demand ; the crisis that
everybody feared was avoided;
the national debt, by careful
management, was largely decreased ;
our currency was appreciated in value;
the national credit was enhanced and
placed on a iirai basis ; loans became
easier '"uad cheaper; business rallied
and jrf.v stioug; and prosperity be
came everywhere the rnle where in-du-try
prevail;!. And ail this came
of refusing to do what Greeley de
manded and of doing exactly the re
verse. His demand for tlie resump
tion of specie payment, wss tlie act of

of tlie iuextrlcable muddle into which
he might plunge the financial affairs of
the country, that arrays very nearly

AIMIt T SEPOIIS.n.
We have just learned a fact which
is peculiarly calculated to startle the
world arid to destroy the confidence of
the Universal brotherhood ot man m
tlm integrity ol well, say l.iljenn Re
publican candidates for the Vice Pres
idency. We have been going on from
day to day with the profoundest re
spect and Unbounded admiration for
our J. Yf. Jasper, J., believing that
he was mounting from one hf-lght to
another' dizzier height, purely upon
his own native talent, ami by reflec
tion and association covering our State
with second-hand glory. We liave
been going on from day to day, listen
ing to the assurance of honest Dem
ocrats aud honest office hunters tliat
the Liberal ticket is composed exclu
sively of the honestet men iu tlie na
tion; men who never hunted tor of
fice; men who wouldn't take an office
at all except by way of self sacrificing
martyrdom ; men who wouldn't, on
any account, place a relation in oilice ;
men who would scorn to be nepotists,
and all that kind of nice talk. And
now we find that oiir. pride in .Tasj.ej
is blighted and our budding coufitleiicc
in anti-nepotic Liberal Republicans is
gone where the woodbine twiuvth. In
brief, our J. W. Jasper J. is a natural
cousin of B. GriiU B. All t)w ro
mance of our Jasper's rise; at Cincin
nati, and his subsequent effulgence at
New York is gone out like :i candle
SnuHed ; for. :ilas, it is too apparent
that he rose like a nepotic fungus ttpou
the nepotic shoulders of his cousin, the
denouncer of nepotism iu Grant. Our
belief in B. Gratz B. as the coining
man who was born to mercilessly
scourge every relation, of wliatcver
name or degree, out of olllce. has beeu
effectually dispelled by the bit of in
formation that his lirst act as a candi
date was to place a cousin (not his
wile's) in the best office within the gift
ofa Vice Presidential candidate. If
B. (iratz B. begins thus early to tnil
bis relations into office, how intermi
nable may not the list of his nepotic !
relations become in a few years, in j
case he should he elected. And they i
say Grata lias got more cousins iimpe- j
etinious as our J. W. Jasper, too) than :
any man in America. The prospect is
frightful to every patriot whose holiest j
soul burns with anti-nepotic lire.
We are told that Gen. Grant's in:li- !
tarv services are to go for nothing in
this campaign. We do not. however,
believe that it is in the heart of tlie
people of the United States to reward
such services as General Grant's, in
such a scurvy way. Wc believe Un
people of this country incapable of
ingratitude so base as that. These
stump-spouters who try to put Grant's
past record out of siht will find they
have mistaken their own malice ami
meanness for something greater and
better the popular sentiment.
B. Gratz had the cholera morbus tho
other day in New York, whereupon
Gen. Comly of the Ohio State Journal,
who knows B. Gratz's private habits,
perpetrated the following : "Ixok not
upon the watermelon when it is red,
nor upon the stewed clicrry when it
givcth its color in the cup ; at the last
it biteth like a soft-shell crab and
stingeth like the cholera morbus.'
llaving seen the campaign song en
titled "King Greeley in," the Xew
York Commercial Advertiser re
marks that taere is evidently a com
bination of "Rinsr;" for that purpose,
and not the least thereof is that re
cently galvanized o.-'.; ui'r ot all re
spectable folks, the Tammany Ring.

North Carolina election, next to the

A change in favor of the Republican
party in North Carolina, of nearly
7,000 votes, since 1S70, indicates to the
average Democratic Oregon editor
that North Carolina is good tor at
least 10,000 majority for Greeley aud
Brown! If these men couldn't blow
they couldn't live.
The Democratic Times thinks that
when the Democrats have used the
Liberal Republicans in 1S72. to beat
Grant, they (tho Democrats) will slide
offinlSTii, and elect a matt of their
own. In thnt case, what is to becom;;
of the Liberal Republicans? Where
are they going to slide to ?

Deau iNfU.vs : I send you jirotved
iugs of Liberal Kepublicans iu form
ing a c!uh. One of our givat. objects
is to protect the interests f thu State,
and show a Irout iu the 'shape ot a
strong party to assist you and other
Republican Representative in ob
taining just and correct Legislation
tortile State. We want to save the
swamp lands of the State and obtain a
Capital appropriation, tfce.
It is not improbable, but you may
hold the casting vote of I. S. Senator
also. There arc many good Republi
cans iu thi S;:(tp wi10 'jriviitly prefer
that Holladay should ii'-t dictate the
man. We look to you a an honest,
firm and intelligent Representative, to
ke;p out of the clutches of party, and I
not snilcr yourself to be shackled by j
anybody, any man or any party, so
that at. any time and all times you can
do that which is best for the State. If
our name or our party power is any
thing, wc intend to use it to sustain
good men in good measures. We
hpard your declarations on the stump
last spring, and believing thctn, is
why we write you. A few lirm and
honest meu can do a great deal to ob
tain jutice to the State.
In listing our names as Liberal Re
publicans and Greeley men. w-e do
not proclaim war upon Gen. Grant,
or forget his gallant service to our
common country. We only post our
selves as vigilant sentinels on the out
posts ol measures. A vigilant and
strong opposition ensure purity and
carefulness in the party in power, and
helps to keep the State right. That is
uiv position if I know myself.
Please reply. Truly yours,
G. W. Lawson, Secretary.

Hon. G. W. Lawms : Dear Sir
Yours of tbe 4th in, has been re

shall act accordingly ; at least, so far
as to keep out of srte' Greeley or
ganizations. It might be proper lor
me. to say that, while I am a Republi
can, I do not hold that everything the
Republicans may do is right ; but I
propose to ue what little ability find
iufluence I may posses. In the endeav
or to remedy wlwt evils there may be,
without going outside ot the Republi
can ornuization. Permit me to say
that while I do not assume to sit iu
tiidtrmniir. on your actions. I cannot
heipb-it lUiiikthat you nrc acting a
little inconsistently in joining tin

Again, you are, yourself, inconsistent,
in tJiat you propose to hold ma t my

by the Septeiulier Convention at Louis

abandonment of principles, as evinced
by the specimen and place hunters in
their attempt to elevate Greeley to the
Presidency, evidence the organization
of corrupt ion. The bargain is a trautl

who ha" a -spark of honesty in bis
