he propones to with this class, and unless
there is an immediate change for the better
lie will see what recourse the law allows him.
We truMt this hint will prove sufficient.

Ollt -SI KKOl 11US.
Tlie time is 8 p. ml. and we are seated in
the rejkirtonal sanctum of the Statesman
cudgeling uur brains to get our items into
sbajn-. ilatamid the cxci lenient that sur
rounds us on every hand, how can you ex
jnct lis. who are so easily carried away by
tne "wind of doctrines,'" to settle ourselves
to write anything to-night? Why, bless
your sonl, Kind reader, haven't we had
enough glory for one day ? Just think of
tliti victory we have gained after a hard
fought battle, and then ask ns to settle
right down to work I Can't you give us
time to celebrate a little? At least let us
rest long cnoiign to spit on our hands for
another hold. Imagine our surroundings
if y ou wilt balein is one blaze of excite
ment from the banks of the Willamette to
the ouUikirttot the city limita. Every citizi na
feelings are wrought up to the highest pitch,
aud tnu only thing tuat troubles us is to
rind some means ot showing folks how hap
py we are. Uoikring won t do ; dancing is
out of our line, uuanipagtie makes our hi ad
ache, soda water is good tor nothing but to
lizzie, and our plug hat won't bear tossing
in the air. So wnat's to be done ? How
can we express our "fctlinks?" We give it
up. We are too ltill lor utterance. Words
fail, etc. Hurrah for our side. "Hurrah
for Mitchell !" But to return to our text,
lmagiuc our surroundings. Through tlie
open window cornea lie noise of an excited
populace (to say nothing of tlie smell of
gunpowder) ami on every band are lnuiea
tious of a regidar jlibUee. . Infantile
wretches of every hue. are running in vari.
ous directions, suonting at tiie top of their
voices "Hnrrafi forMitchLll." Womenand
girls even join iu the excitement, and think
Hurrah for Mitchell," i-v.-n if they
dun't say it As for the men, they are liter
ally beide themselves. On the Chenieketa
corner a large crowd is assembled, listening
to -the speaking, aud clieer al ter cheer rends
the air as tne tun goes on. L'p on the Court
House square, low. scott, asaistea bv sev
eral others, are tiring the cannon, and it
speaks in thnndex-touea after the bovs have
sent the load home. The Salem Brass
Band is furnishing music for the occasion.
and tneir soul-surruig airs intensify tne en
thushistu of the ratification. Botd hotels,
juuging troru outsida appearances, are in
dinging in an illumination, vnd every store
presents a brilliant scene. In fact, Salem
is " red hot" to-night, and to be cooped up
here scratching our devoted head for a live
i'jem is what we call roughness. We can't
do it its too much for human nature to
bear. Put yonrself in our place and you'll
know how 'tis vourself.
The Joist Assembly. Every available
seat was occupied at noon yesterday iu the
Legislative Hall by the crowd of curious
spectators gathered to witness the result of
tiie fifth ballot. At the calling of the roll
Mr. Waldon was absent, h, was amusing
to hear tlie numerous inquiries regarding
Ids polities at that particular moment. But
he soon made his appearance and tlie fun
commenced. Mr. Bristow presented a let
ter from Mr. Corbet t, in which he withdrew
from the contest. Mr. Brown of Baker Co.,
immediately arose and nominated him as
the choice of tlie Democratic party. This,
of course, caused great surprise throughout
the entire audience. The roll was then call
ed, and as one after another announced their
choice, tlie excitement was intense. Hands
trembled as well as hearts, and faces paled
for the instant. As soon as Mr. Mitchell
had received the thirty-six votes necessary
for a choice in was difticu.t to maintain
order and before the decision was announc
ed the pent np excitement broke forth into
prolonged applause. The result, though not
unexpected by outsiders, was received with
. great excitement and the news spread like
wild-tire. Telegraph operators were nearly
overwhelmed with dispatches, and within
an honr the election of Mr. Mitchell was
probably known all over the State and at
the principal political headquarters in the
HuiriTT I V rPTT. This renowned play,
is to be put upon tho stage at the Fair
Ground next week under the management
of Mr. O. B. Waldron. The Portland pc-
pers speak very nighiy ot it anu it will no
doubt Drove a creat treat to those who have
never witnessed it Vivian the great char
acter singer will also be on hand to lend his
assistance m amusing the crown.
Crystal Palace Cmccs. This well
known exhibition will show at the Fair
Grounds, commencing to-morrow and con
tinuing diiriiifr the week. New attractions
have been added, and it will no doubt
prove a popular place of amtibemeut.

The State Faie We yesterday paid a
flying visit to the Fair Ground, "and al
liiorgh we remained but a short time, we
noticed considerable life and enterprise.
Wo were nurjM-ised at the amount of busi
ness alreadv done there. The stands have
nearly all been taken, and are fast filling
up. Families have already arrived in great
numbers, and are encamped in the neigh
borhood of the grounds. We also noticed
some tine specimens of stock, of which wo
will make further notice whin the right
time comes. The circus is alr.ady there,
and other amusements are constantly ar
riving. In short, every thing indicates that
the coming State Fair will be a succesa
liuaucialiv and otherwise.

TWELFTH AXMAt MATE FAIR.
Opening Scenes .4iuiweineiitJi-ltace
Yesterday being the opening day of the
Oregon State Fair there was, of course, a
slim attendance, and those who were en
hand were mostly exhibitors who wi re bu
sily engaged in arranging articles brought
in for exiiilitiou. There were the usual
class of business (?) nu n on hand for tiie
sole purH,:sc of making money, many of
whom wire willing to adopt questionable
modi a to gain the point when honesty would
scarcely do. Most of those present yester
day were money makers; the mom y spen
ders not yet having put m their apiiearance.
ihe crowd on the grounds, however, was
lull as large as it usually is the first day.
as yet are few in number, judging from the
books, but there are hunilrcds of articles on
the ground and iu thr pavilion thai have not
yet been enteral on the books. The rlcras
were employed all day, and access to tnu
lssiks was an utter impossibility. We took
a walk around the grounds iinii wi.ru pleas
ed to note the plesiliee of a great deal of
live stock. The catilc pens are not Well till
ed as yet, but by tliis eveuing there w dl be
large additions, no doubt. The display of
swine is as full as usual and among tncin we
noticed some unusually tine breeds. Thu
sheep-pens are remarkably well tilled ami
the display a tine one. Hut, as none ot these
articles had been entered on tiie books, we
are unable to jiartienlarize. "During the
day, however, they will no doubt lie proper
ly labeled and we shall lie pleased to enu
merate more lully.
as yet has but very few articles in it. Henry
Haas ot this city, has ntteu up the does,
purchased for Salem and placed it in a con
spicuous place and an amazed crowd are
constantly surrounding it watching it work.
Dr. Chase lias a splcniuil aquarium on ex
hibition, which in point of finish exceeds
anything we have ever seen. J. H. Garrison
of Portland has placed a large oil painting
of the Xoothe fsriilge at tlie cascades wnicii
is well worthy of note. The scene is a beau
tiful one: the wafe rs of tlie Columbia and
both shores brought out iu all their grand
eur. It is richly framed aud would make a
rare ornament fur parlor or drawing room.
Mr. Garrigan also has two California views
which are perfect little gems. The display
of sewing machines is very large w ith both
lady and gentlemen operators.
A Oil RAT IMVIIOVEMEN'T.
. Thromrl: the continued comulaints of re
porters cud the persistence of Mr. Wilkius,
the iTcsiueut oi uie aocietv, a marieii im
provement has been introduced by which
spectators can inform themselves regarding
tne names oi me exuionors oi uie vanuus
articles. Tlie entry card contains the name
of the exhibitor, whieh maiics a great sav-
mg of trouble in gaming information. It
w jj thought by certain old fogies that were
the exibitor's name knowu.it would bias the
opinions of the awarding committees; but
such we feel assured will not be the case.
THE TBOiTING EACE.
This was the main feature of the day and
it proved an exciting one. It came off at
2:30 p. m., for horses that had never beaten
thrte minutes, mile heats, 3 in 5. first prt
mium SoO; second premium. f30. The en
tries were as follows: F. A. Fletcher, "Fly
ing Cloud;" W. J. Tennaiit "American
Itoy;" J no. J. Welch. "Fannie Fi rm" and
Henderson's bay horse. "Charlie." First
heat Alter several false starts, the horses
got oil well together, but "Ami ric.iu IJoy"
shot aheadaiiii led his competitors thcwhule
distance around the traca. Fannie made
several bad breaks and was the last in the
string until just alter passing the half mile
post, when she settled down to her work and
passed Charlie, the four coming in on the
home stretch at a rattling gate in the follow
ing order: American Boy. Cloud, l annin
and Charlie. The two latter were distanced
and American 1'siy won the first lwat.
Second heat The Boy and Cloud got pret
ty near an even start. The former. How
ever, soon took the lead and kept it. although
at one time had Cloud kept his pace without
breaking, he coidd have won the heat. The
Bov's time was 3:02.
Third heat Cloud pressed his rival so
close in the preceding heat he won friends
anil several heavy bets were made that he
would win tliis heat. 'Hie horses came to
the trateh neck and neck, lut Cloud soon
shot ahead and led the Buy about a) yards,
until coining in on the home stretch, when
the latter put on strain and lapped his rival;
but an nntortunate break slac.Kin d his pace
and the Cloud passid the stand one length
ahead. Time. 3:00.
Fourth heat Money was now being put
up in a lively manner and tin" horses were
sent otf in good style. The Boy took the
lead from the start and won the heat and
race, his time being 2:39.
We notice this style of betting ha. taken
the precedence this" year and the bids were
very lively for a while. While w- would not
favor betting on horse races, still if such
tilings must be, we consider this the li a it
narmi'ul way of doing it.
There are the nsn:il number of means to
amuse all classes. "Humpty D'.tmpty" was
billed for lsst enening and we are informed
by those who have witnessed this popular
pantomime in Portland, that it is immense,
and provocative of laughter from beginning
to end. J. Wilson's and Kyland's circuses
are both on hand with their usual number
of side-shows. Therevoivingswingsare be
ing erected, and all will, no doubt, to-day
be filled with pleasure-seekers. The Thea
ter Comique was niifoldinc canvass yester
day and will open up to-day. A well filled
menagerie is on the ground which immense- '
ly amuses the little ones. In fact, there are
plenty of ways of disposing of your loose
We notice qnite a number of our mer
chants have opened branch stores at the
grounds. Capt. L. 8. Scott has a "general
variety" of refreshments for the inner man
an 1 his stand proves a popular one, owing
to the fact thatevcryliody knows Billie Trot
ter and Lafayette V illiafns, who have sole
charge of it, and wait upon their customers
with both grace and unruffled good nature.
The Overland Branch Store is in charge of
Gholson Coffey and his customers find him
a g.-uial chap, as well as an excellent sales
man. Both Lampson fc Taylor and 3. G.
Holbert have candy stands and dispense
sweetmeats to tlie gathered thousands. The
Aurora rooms are again opened, and hun
dreds can find food and refreshment within
its ample walls.
On every hand we find something to
tempt one of the five senses, and our otiiv
difficulty is to keep our coin in our pockets.
The Grounds are still very dusty, and the
public were loud in their complaints. We
would suggest to the managers to provide
more ninple means of supplying this de
mand, and thereby plca-so ti.e crowd in at
tendance. Cheebe. Mr. Warren Cranston, of the
Waldo Hills, left with ua yesterday a very
fine specimen of his cheese of this vear'a
make. He has made this year about 20,1)00
pounds. It goes in the market among tlie
best brands. Mr.- Cranston has for several
years obtained high premiums at our State
Fairs, for cheese; out thig year, he informs
ua, he will not compete, though he thinks
he has better cheeses than ever before.

tliat a number of deaths have lately oc
curred among the cattle, in the Waldo fiills,

and he is admirably adapted to it,andplavs it
hi th most artis'tic manner. Mrs. Wal
dron, as Rosa Leigh, is decidedly at home,
and sustains tiie character wtli. Fulford,
as her brother Matthew, shows a wonderful
knowledge of tlie maimer in which it should
be Waved, and t)u settles down to business
and plays it iu a most acceptable manner.
Mrs, Fdlfurd, as Florence May, has won the
liearty approbation of all who have ever
witnlssed her rendition of the character.
Crosbie kept the audience in excellent hu
mor, while Mrs. Stewart, as Tabitha, helptd
matters along amazingly. Vinson and
1'irn-y acted the villains to perfection in
ttieir " respective parts. Tlie sensational
ilraina of "The Octoroon" will be repeated
tliis evening. We advise our readers to
t M early, as there will no doubt be a
