Tbe total decrease of monthly Interest

Tbe decrease of annual Interest charge
On the first day of August, 1872,
the amount of the debt bearing Inter
est In ooln was $1,788,554,100. Tbe
debt bearing Interest in currency was
$24,153,000. Tbe aggregate of debt
bearing no Interest was $429,791,-
918 97. These several debts, with In
terest due and unpaid (including all
bonds, certificates of Indebtedness,
Nary Pension rand, old Demand
notes, legal tender notes, fractional
currency coin certificates, and unclalm
ed Interest) amounted to $2,273,416,
700 83, on the first of August ; and
the debt, less cash In the Treasury,
was $2,188,053,656 44. The decrease
thus shown has been effected mainly
by purchase and cancellation of bouds.
The above showing is official and
accurate. Tbe statement goes into
every detail, but we have given only
tbe briefest possible synopsis. It
is a triumphant record; one to
which we can point as a complete
refutation of all tbe charges of
corruption -and mismanagement,
which reckless opponents bring against
tbe administration of Gen. Grant
The burden of interest which this re-
doctlon of tbe debt bal lifted from tbe
people, is not, by any means, the only
or principal item of beneficence in tbe
management of the ft i unices. The
payment of the debt, has established
tbe national credit at home and abroad,
and thus made tlie management of the
balance of the debt easier, by means
of loans on more favorable terms.
has brought np the value of currency
to nearly par. What would have been
the condition of tbe common people.
had the currency remained at its for
mer frightful depreciation, is a prob
lem which nobody can think ot with
out Involuntarily thanking the admin
Ut ration fur having averted it.
It Is singular what a faithless Dem
ocrat, blackguard, and renegade, full
of all enssedness. Brick Pomeroy has
become, since a number of Democrats
met at Baltimore and voted to emi
grate from tlie old landmarks, leaving
Brick and a tew of the salt of Democ
racy in cl large of the bedrock position
A tew montlis airu, Brick was "that
sterling Democrat," thnt faithful ex
ponent of true Democracy," etc. Now,

find tbe English language altogether
too poor in words of objurgation and
scorn, with which to adequately with
er him.- ,
Some of the Democratic newspapers
of Oregon are unprincipled enough to
continue the publication of a hodge
podge of vile language abusive of the
Germans and Irish, as the utterances
of Henry Wilson, though it has been
proved again and again that the lan
guage attributed to him was that of a
bigoted Know Nothing of. Indiana
named John M. Wilson. While these
chaps are shakinjr liancU across the
bloody chasm, and praying for peace,

A Democratic cotemporary wants to
know "Shall sober men support a sober
man for President ?" Wc should say
there coukl be no possible harm in an
swering "yes," if tlie man Is other
wise a suitable man to be President.
But if that rule .were inflexibly ap
plied what would '. become ot Bacha ri
al lan G. Brown, tbe mixed candidate
for Vice President? The Springfield
Republican, a supporter of Greeley,
demanded, a short time ago, that
Brown be withdrawn from the ticket
on account of grossly drunken habits.
Every Democratic paper we have
received, this week, has thought it
worth while to take special notice of
the Louisville Convention movement,
Tbere is evident alarm as to the influ
ence that Convention will have upon
the campaign. Several of them have
already commenced to receive newt
that "the Louisville Convention move
ment Is declining." What with tbe
Republicans and the Louisville Dem
ocracy, the grape-vine telegraph, In
use by the Democracy, Is likely to be
kept very taisy.
We have waited ft long Ume for the
Democratic papers to retract their
"flaunting lies" about the North Car
olina election. After Announcing a
Democratic victory, they dropped the
"abject, as totally- uninteresting, and
tbe Democratic readers of most of
them are, perhaps, still under the Ina
pressioo that North Carolina went
Democratic by twenty thousand, as
per Herald "special."
Tbe Albany Democrat affects to
think a fusion of Detaocratto and Re
publican members of the Legislature,
to elect a Senator, a practicable scheme.
We do not ; there's tbe difference
'twixt us. But we do not ddubt tne
Democrat would be very glad to fuse ;
and It is probable tliat one or two otb
wise lielpless and hopeless candidates
are like Barkis 'willln."

TbeMoumouth Messenger says the
result of the late State Teachers' As
sociation meeting "confirms a con elu
sion we have long since reached, that
the educators are far behind tlie masses
of the people in zeal and Interest in
matters of education. It has seemed
so to us, for years. Tbe fact is, while
we have a few good teachers in the
State, the greater proportion of them
work for tttercly mercenary hire, and
as a temporary expedient. This is
particularly true of the district school
teachers. So fur ns the colleges acad
emics And seminaries are concerned,
we are proud to say, tlie rule does not
generally apply. The teachers em
ployed in them are in general men
and women who have adopted .teach
ing as a profession and who devote
their energies to tbe success of their
respective schools. But on the other
hand, we ore sorry to say that not
many of them interest themselves in
the improvement of our common
schools. There seems to be a sort of
understanding among them that it is
not to their pecuniary advantage to
have tlie common schools lifted to a
higher grade. We think we are justi
tled in making this statement, by tlie
almost entire and habitual absence of
this class of teacher from tbe sessions
of the State Teacliers' Institute. For
many years that association has beeu
'run" by men who though sincere
friends ot education, are not profes
sional teachers. A number of attempts
have been made to resolve the concern
into a Teachers' Normal v School ; but
tliese attempts have uniformly met
with some opposition and a good deal
of Indifference and, so, tliey have al
ways failed. We are satisfied that we
cannot expect ever to have a good
common school system till teachers in
' general, including Collegiate and Ac
ademic Professor, sliall rouse them
selves to the effort. We believe, too,
that a good school system established
by law. will bring with it the employ
ment of a better class of teachers than
Oregon has heretofore had in charge
of its common schools. This, hi turn.
will elevate the standard of the high
schools and thus, in ever way, a good
school law will benefit tbe people.
A BOAHD OF IMXIURATIOX.
A petition has been put in circula
tion In this' county, asking the legis
lature to make provision for sustaining
a State Board of Immigration. Like
petitions are In circulation in various
other parts of tbe State, and it is likely
that the aggregate of signatures will
count np large enough to give consid
erable weight to tbe request. Wc hope
that the Legislature will recognize tlie
fact that an enlarged population is just
now one of tbe greatest needs of our
State. A reasonable sum of money
judiciously spent for the advertisement
ot the advantages we can offer to im
migrants will be a most excellent In
vestment; one that will afford rich
returns to all portions of the State,
No effort can be made without a sys
tematic plan and some money. Private
effort has been tried on a limited scale,
with good results ; but it came to an
end because a few Individuals could
not afford to pay tlie entire expense,
while they were to be benefitted only
in common with each and every other
citizen of the State. If the Legisla
ture will make a suitable appropria
tion, and place some energetic, capa
ble man at tlie head ot tbe bureau, we
think the beneficial results will be such
as to amply satisfy every tax-payer of
tbe wisdom of the expenditure. Ini
migration is a material interest. It
cannot, however, be obtained in these
days of advertising without the use of
some such means as are universally
adopted by other States and Territo
ries. Oregon can afford to invest in
settlers upon its own domain. Let it

The Democratic papers have been
cliarging that tlie administration was
furnishing Blanton Duncan money to
pay the expenses of tlie Louisville Con
vention campaign. Of course, nobody
believed the falsehood ; but the fol
lowing from Blanton Duncan settles
the wliole matter. He says in a pub
lished card, Aug. 23d : "No money
was tendered me from Washington
and none would be accepted. Tlie ex
penses ot tbe Committee so far have
been borne by me, ns the future ex
penses will be, unless subscriptions
shall be made to defrav them."

We have the following particulars
of a terrible tragedy at Dalla s, Polk
county, Saturday evening, from a re
liable correspondent :
Dallas. August 25, 1872.
En. Statesman : A terrible trag
edy was enacted Imtc lat night, aboiit
twenty minutes after nine o'clock, in
which several own were wounded, one
fatally. The fects as near as I can
pillteV tlieni f:wn what l saw n.yself,
jind liJtvc lie-aid from ollw-r wlio uit
iies.'d it. arc about ;is follow :
Nit no time ago one Zed Wilson got
into a row in Glaze & McCaunV sa
loon with a man by the name of Tili-hi-tts
h t age agent, I lielieve, on tin;
daily line. A. H. Whitley interfered
in the r". and r)t into a fight with
Glaze, who struck him over tlie liead
with a revolver, which '"put a head ou
liiin." as the slum vernacular lias it.
Whitley and his friends threatened
that 'hey would "get away with
Glaze,'" (whatever that may mean) so
lut night. Old Whit., Billy W hitley,
liis son, and one Frank Dice went into
the saloon for the purpose, as tliey
stated, ot "getting away with" Till
Glaze. When tliey went in old
Whit, shook hands with MoCann,
tiding his left hand, and keening his
right iu his ivket, on his pistol. Mc
Cann invited him to sit. down. Whit,
replied, "lay be somebody wants to
knock me down?" keeping his eye,
nil the while, on Till Glaze, and mov
ing around so as to briiig Glaze be
tween him and a large mirror. He
jerked out his pistol la small pocket
piece) and fired, the ball striking In the
ceiling, I ant informed. At this.
Glaze drew a pistol and tired, without
effect. Billy -Vhitley then threw a
hatchet at Glaze which struck him on
the arm, inflating a wound iu the
muscle and bone. At tlie same time
Frank Dice fired at MoCann. The
hall iuised McCann. passed through a
partition, striking Win. h. Moore in
the left shoulder, inllicting a very se
vere and painful wound. Thou Glaze
llrel at Whitley; the latter dodged
down and crawled out at tlie door.
Billy Whitley ran out of the saloon to
tlie livery stable and returned with a
double-barreled shotgun. Ashe came
in at the door lie fired one Ictrrel at
Glaze, missing liiui and striking Dan
B. iricliaedsoit in tlie arm with one
shot, the main charge passing through
a screen and partition, without doing
further damage. Before he coukl fire
the other barrel lie was shot down, the
ball strikii!' him about three inches
below, and back of tlie left nipple.
From this wound lie died about two
o'clock to-day (Sunday). After Frank
Dice fired at MeCanii, he began to
throw tumblers when some one (re
jiorted to liave been Till Glaze) pitched
into him atid beat him nearly to death.
It is reported that lie has a 'fancy
lirad on." and is in a critical condi
tion. Tlie doctors think he will re
cover, with care. The result of the
imek"e toots up : Three men shot ;
one killed ; one badly cut; one with
a badly broken head; the town v'iy
much excited ; mot people think
somebody ought to be hung or sent to

than during the early part of the season,
''lie harvest has unquestionably set loose
some money tvhich ih finding its way into
general buxiuess channels. There have
Ltely been some additions to die circulation
through sales of real estate to immigrants.
Altogether the financial situation is easier
than it was up to the 1st day of August.
Wliile we cannot expect "money to be so
plenty this yuar as last, nor business to be
so profitable, still tliere are reasons to lie
lieve that there will be, from this time for
ward, a decided revival from the lethargy
which has ruled this tar through the year.
Indeed, salts are already better in baleni
thau during the first pirt of the season ;
and our business men are preparing for the
full trade on a more enlarged scale than at
any former time. There is apparant a more
decided determination among our more sa
gacious business men to regain and retain
tlie trade taken away by the opening of rail
road connection with Portland, than lias
been witnessed for two years past. It can
)e done, if our merchants will keep full
stocks and assortments, sell at small profits
and depend upon an enlarged circle of cus
tomers for their gains, rather than upon
trading with a few at larger per cents. The
fact is that for two years Portland merchants
have out-advertisul ours in every way, and
have sold goods. In consequence, to onr
very nearmt country neighliors, taking
trade which might anil ought to have been
secured by Salem merchants. All this will
lie remedied in time, and the prosperity of
tialem will be again assured.
The harvest, we think, has demonstrated
that the aggregate yield of graiu is not so
large as had been anticipated. While in
some sections the crop gathered is fully up
to or above the average yield per acre, it is
eertainlv true that there are numerous dis
tricts where it is far below. Nearly all the
spring wheat is short in yield. Tlie greater
tiian usual acreage reaped may make our
surplus equal to that of last year, but the
profit to the farmer is very considerably less
per bushel, not only on account of the short
average yield per acre, but the greatly re
duced price per bnshel. The present bny
iug rate iu San Francisco is $1 40 perccnud
or mie per bushel. This is bused upon the

treight charges and profit to the interme
diate buvcr, where the wheat goes by way
of San Francisco. Where shipment is di
rect to Liverpool, tliere is no reason why
the price should not be as high, or within a
fraction of it, at Portland as at San Fran
cisco, less the cost of sacking say 9c per
bushel. Of course, the farmers in the in
terior must also deduct the freight charges
to Portland, which will reduce their returns
to a verr low figure. We see nothing very
encouraging to the farmer in the wheat
prospects. Those who can, without embar
rassment, may do well to hold awhile.

Mr. President and Feltoic-Citizeas :
I sliall not detain you long with any
extended speech. We are here iu
cheerful obedience to the call of tlie
Republican County Coifimltteefot Mult
nomah county tor the purpose of re
newing our allegiance to the National
Republican party, and to declare to
tlie world our intentions to snpport

IKTsoual and political lieing its present
mi tioniil standard-bearers and nominees
of the Philadelphia Convention, Ulysses
IS. Grant of Illinois, and Henry Wil
son ot Massachusetts.
This evening: our party camp fires,
whose embers have carccly died out
since our recent contest and recent
victory iu this State, sliall lie rekindled
to guide our conquering hosts on to the
vet greater contest, and a more bril
The daily telegrams from the States
east ot the ltocky Mountains, remind
us that we are on the eve of another of
those periodical, those quanilreuisl but
bloodless contests wherein the voice ol
the whole people, as uttered at the
ballot-box. is to determine in whose
hands the Government shall rest the
ensuing four years, and which must
necessarily, to a greater or less extent,
control and shaie the destinies of our
Republic for years and years to come.
It is a great struir;le, therefore, be-
.tween conflict in;; minds and elements,
betore whose splendors tho-e or the
serried hosts of war. upon the world's
blood-stniiicd battlefields, pale into
iuMgtiiticaiice and f ide forever away ;
contest wherein the sword lies mo
tionless in its scabbard and the revolu
tionary, swift-winged bullet, gives
place to that more peaceful and consti
tutional ballot, which the poet tells us
Comes down as light as snow-flakes fall upon
Hut executes the freeman's will as lightning
does the will tf God.
We are licie to-night, fellow-citizens,
iu tlie exercise of our preroga
tives as members of a great political
party and as citizens of onr common
country for the purpose of inaugurat
ing in Multnomah county the l'resi
ileiitial campaign for 172.
We are here to again call the roll ot
those valliaut Republicans upon whose
banner victory lias so often pen-lied,
and who in the recent contest gave to
tlie Republican nominee for Congress
a majority of nearly one thousand
votes: and liere this evening in the
presence ot this large and enthusiastic
audience, we renew our faith in tlie
cherished principles of Republicanism,
as enunciated iu tlie National Repul
lican riatform at the Philadelphia
Convention, and pledge ourselves each
to the other and to true Republicans
everywhere throughout the length and
breadth of the land, thnt in Novem
ber next. Multnomah county shall roll
up a majority of over one thousand
votes against that nameless party led
bv Greeley and Brown, and in favor
of that hero ot many victories in peace
as well as In war, the present f resi
dent of these United States of Ameri
ca. And when a coalition of elements,
of principles, and of men, so unex
pected, so unnatural, so opxsed to all
past history, so pregnant With suspi
cion, so clouded iu doubt, so involved
in mysterv and so abhorrent to every
principle and seiitimentof consistency,
is presented as our adversary as that
of (ireeley and the iX'inoeraey bearing
upon their banners the frank but omi
nous declaration "Anything to beat
Grant," then it occurs to me that
good, intelligent, patriots ot" all
political parlies should hesitate long
Ix-tore they join hands with such mi
alliance, or give countenance to what
appear to ben dangvrou coiv-7rrary
against the true interests of the whole
people; that they should pointer mell
the question whether It is for the best
interests of this Republic with its
flirty millions ot pe-ople, with all its
treasured trophies of the tast and fts
high hoes for the future, that the .tft
ministrition of its government should

And yet such would seem te be Ilie

an example ot Inconsistency In all its

dented example of an over-weenine
ambition upon tbe one hand, involving
a most pitiable and humiliating sacri
fice of principle, coupled witn an enort
uooii tlie other, under the false name
of patriotism, to obtain through chica
nery anu deception tne control or a

stroke ot policy, not bv the masses en

washed wholly clean from tbe crime
of moral and political treason, ana
which If successful would, in my judg

every patriot in the land should 8ieak
out in trumpet tones, and cast at once.

position, thau there was wlien the ar

none the less In peril now ; and no true
Republican and patriot who loves his
tarty and his country, and who de
Mres to see them succeed In every con
test and triumph upon every battle
field wlietlier ot peace or war, can now,
in justice to hlmselt, his party or his

silence, much less evade, postpone, or

although the reward for such a course
might Tie a scepter or a crown.
Tlie evil results of jieacefiil revolu

erileiuain have in ages past at times
accomplished tlion: purposes for the
accomplishment of which bloody wars
have been waged in vain. The. quiet

than the drawn sword ; while the un

But why, I would inquire, sliould

solemn duties of tlie time, suppressed
a gigantic reliellion, emancipated four
millions ot slaves, decreed the equal
citizenship ot all, and establislied uni

more tlian this. It lias exteueleel and
enlarged our National area reaching
liir out towards the waters of Asia,
thus laying tlie strong ami of the Gov
