U by no means the death of tlie .De
mocracy ; and that the Democracy
ma-, can and must gather uj its
scattered torccs and strike for "victory
in 1S78." As well might a market
woman look for her basket of eggs,
after its contents had been distribtiteil
among the several planetary orbs by
Uie combustion under it, ot a barrel
or two of giant powder. There are
hon t three or four of these donkey
Democrats in Oregon ; and by some
inscrutable l'rovideuee they are per
niitted to edit ncwspiijiei-s. It is per
haps well enough that this is so, dur
ing the dull Winter months the peo
ple need some amusement in the ab
sence of the circuses, the "winged
calves,"' the "living wonders," tho
sword - swallowers. snake - charmers,
contortionists, and other side-shows ..
and tliesv fellows will serve us to
laugh at.
Tlie whole country was terribly
startled the other day. by the telegraph
ic news ot an immense conflagration
going on in tlie business heart of Bos
ton. A day later, the tension was
somewhat relieved by tin; announce
ment that tlie fire was tinder control;
and though tlie losses were supposed
to reach millions, the Insurance com
panies promptly announced their abil
ity to adjust and proceed with busi
ness." It was stiM further relief t
know that very fe'w, if any lives were
lost; that no families would be unpro
vided for more tlian a lew days, ami
that we should not be called upon to
witness a repetition of the harrowing
distress that fell upon Chicago last
year. The later dispatches greatly rv
dnce.. the estimates of -losses, but we
think from tlie cliaractcr of tho locali
ty burned, tlie last estimates are prob
ably under the actual losses. He t'.mt
as it may, it is evident that the losses
will be severely felt all over the coun
try, through the financial tlisturluinco
created. A panic in New York is
feared. One of the niost noticeablj
features of this great calamity is
it brings out again into active play
that noble generosity, Vhicli underlie
the natures ot tlie .American petp!e.
Already before the smoke lias began to
lift from tlie ruins, tlie people are meet
ing in the great western cities to offer
relief.' ;'f hese exhibitions of tender
sympathy and 'munificent charity al
ferd additional reasons for an almost
exulting pride in the character of Use
American people.
Of course the Sacramento Union ap
proves the action of our Governor in
tlie matter of the veto ol tlie Immigra
tion bill. It thinks that there was
nothing inconsistent in the veto, with
tlie Governor's recommendation in his
message that the Legislature should
take action to encourage immigration
to the State. California is getting
nearly all the accessions to the popula
tion of the Pacific coast, because it i
better advertised than Oregon. We
can tliereforc very easily understand
tlie secret reason of the Union's chuckle
over the veto; but what shall wetUiuk
of tlie Governor of Oregon who exer
cises his veto " according to the best
light California has atrbrded him " ( to
use the Union's language) to the detri- i
meiit of Oregon direct, and theadvan- j
tage of California, indirect?
lltere is a crumb of comfort for tlie
farmers. A San Francisco market re
view, Iov. 5th says: "The Produce
Market is rapidly improving, from
causes we have frequently stated would
effect tliis result. The supply of Grain
does not equal tne demand. i lie
agents of the Batik aud Friedlander
are scouring the country to obtain all
tlie outside lots hefore the advance,
which is now inevitable, commences;
1 7031 75 have been offered and re
fused for lots in store at Stockton, deliv
erable within 30 days. It is the gen
eral belief that choice lots of wheat
will command $2 within the current
nionth." Since the foregoing was
published, wheat has advanced in all
tlie Pacific coast markets.
One of our State Democratic ex4
changes figures out the "sure and cer4
tain" success of ihe Democracy in 187(1
on tlie theory that the soreheaded Re
publicans will then boo't tlie Democ
racy. e tail, to see, however, howl
the little weazened chap is going t
boost tlie. bis lubber, when tho bid
lubber failed so ingloriously in the at -f
tempt to boost the little, weazened
chap. Isn't this boosting business
about played out?
' Horace Greeley says that "he will
not be provoked to an indnlgenee in
those bitter personalities which are
recognized as tlie bane of journalism."
Alas, that defeat should so knock tho
spirit aad spice out of a man t And
so we shall no more iliid in the Tri
bune such elegant little pleasantries
as, "Yon lie, villain, you lie!" 4-0r,
"If you say so-and-so, you are a liar
and a Democrat!"

Mr. Levi Knott, one ot the principal
owners in these mines, returned to this
city la-t Friday after an absence of
several month-." He informs us that
work Is going on at the Bohemia quite
lively. When he left six men were
employed in sinking a shaft. Most of
the machinery lor the quartz will had
arrived on the ground and been put in
running condition. Owing to the late
ness of the hour operations will be
suspended until spring, except the
-inking of thu shaft. The alia ft in
question is 10x5 feet in the clear inside
of the tiiuliers, which are placed
a row ml the edges all the way down to
pn-veiit caving in, fallinj: stones, etc.
U'tieti Mr. Knott left, the sliafc had
reached a depth ot 11 teet, and was
being sunk as rapidly as tlie ditlicult'.es
attending tlw work, would permit.
The whole distance of the shaft so far
has been made through the hard,
solid quartz rock. Every inch of pro-
,rri.c iloii-nvvsril leis llc-o .'Itlll must
i be aivom:lislicd by means of bl-ting.
Work under s-uch circuni-tances pro
ceeds slowlv. intention is, to sink
j the shaft lot) f.-ct this winter, atnl
have everything ill readiness to proe-
ecute the work with renewed mW i
