Tho recent attempt at tho resurrection
of "I, John P. Guines," from the political
obscurity into which ho had snnk, in tho
estimation of tho general government, and
also ol tho peoplo of Oregon, is otio of
those political farces that has frequently
been enacted by the whig party, since their
first organization ; and it requires but a
cursory view of tho present condition of
the whig-kno wnothing party in this Territory
to find their reasons ftfr this last Quixotic
move on their rotten old platform. Know
iug full well that defeat was certain that
an overwhelming majority of tho peoplo of
this Territory will speak In thunder-tones
In favor ol JO LANE, on the first .Mon
day in Juuo next, it becarno a mttter of
consultation among their leaders, of (not
who should bo the candidate for Delegate
with a prospect of victory,) but, uho should
run for defeat? It was necessary in order
to keep up tho appearance of an existing
branch (though small) of the whig party
in Oregon, to nominate some person, not
to oppose, but merely to be spoken ot as an
opposing candidato for Delegate to Con
grcss, and in order that tho name whig,
which includes all tho isms of tho day,
should not be entirely forgotten on the Pa
cific coast And, strange as it may seem,
even in this consultation or caucus, which
was held at Corvallis, on tho 17th inst., and
which was to decide who should bo the
tnan to bo beaten, thero were no less than
five who were aspiring for that position
Dryer, Stark, Chinn, Gaines and Henry.
After weighing tho matter carefully, it was
finally decided that tho load of condemna
tion which had been placed upon him by
tho united voico of his fellow-citizens, and
which his own conscience told him was
jutt, should bo attempted to bo rolled aside,
and hence tho effort at tho resurrection of
John P. Gainer, Gaines tho haughty, Guinea
the onco nmiable, Gaines tho usurper,
Gnines the brave, Gaines tho tool of tho
"Evil Genius," Gaines who kept tho peo
ple's money, which was donated for tho
purposo of building a State house, Gaines
tho "hero of Encamacion," Gaines who
was onco "I, John P. Gnines," but proved
unworthy of tho trubt, and in consequence
of that sank into insigniflcar.ee, and now,
lastly, Gaines the whig-knownolhing can
didato fur Delegate to Congress. And this
is certainly "the unkindest cut of nil," that
after the people of Oregon, by repeated
public demonstration have decided that ho
is nelthei morally, nor mentally capacitated
for any public position, (Gnines was beaten
for constable, in Oiegou City, in 1852,)
and after hating been driven by public sen
timent into rurnl retirement and that sweet
tranquility, for which he is so happily adop
ted, constitutionally, and made- perfect by
eereral years experience that his quiet
repose should ha thus disturbed, and the
.manifold errors and iniquities of his earlier
years again arrayed beforo on iudignant
people, is not only extremely ungenerous,
but it is actually a species of torture' which
was hardly to bo expected uvon of tho big.
nted and prescriptive lenders of tho whig-know-nothing
party of Oregon.
I ho (tooplo recollect yet tho struggle for
their tights in tho c.tily history of tho Ter
ritory, when they were opposed by the
whig federal ollieers, of whom Gnines was
tho prime leader. Ho then assumed pro
rogntives and established precedents ns
strange na they were foreign to our liber
ties and incompatible- with tho true genius
of our republican institutions. Hut tho
people in their sovereign capacity spoke
aloud in tho Legislative halls and at public
meetings in till parts of the Territory, ngiilnst
the usurpations of Gaines & Co., and that
appeal was not only regarded and approv
ed of by tho general government, but it
tolled tho political death-knell of Gaines nt
that period and for all subsequent time, and
an attempt to resuscitate his fallen fortunes
Is certainly a piece ol folly that his true
friends would not seriously indulge in.
The County Ticket.
It will be .oen by proceedings which wo
nublish tn-dnv that the ilemnrrnrv nf ilit
count v have "made their nnmin.dnr.. fU
count V ollicers. Tho convention .. ll
attended, tnd tho utmost good feeling and
hannoiK prevailed. The delegates from
all parts of the county manifested a wil
lingness to withdraw all personal preferen
ces, in order' t lint men inLjht bo nominated
of unexceptionable character, and men who
would carry the entire strength of tho de
mocracy of tho county. Thu is certainly
very commendable, and it bespeaks thu
victory that is certain to perch on tho stan
dard of tho demncrncv if tlio democrats
come up to tho polls on tho first Monday
u Juno next.
In the nomination of Mr. J. M. Cozui,
for Representative, thoy hive a in vi whom
every honest intelligent citizen be bo whig
or democrat, who has the truo interests of
tho county at heart will say is tho
As an honest upright citizen, Mr. Under
wood probably may havo no superior in the
county, and far be it from us to find fault
with him or detract from his fair fame mere
ly becauso he is a political opponent, but
when the interests of tho county are at stake,
and as imiortant an officer as a Territori
al Representative to elect, we think it right
and proper, and imperative upon us, to lay
aside all personal and selfi.h considerations,
and discuss fairly tho merits of the differ-
ent candidates It is a great absurdity to
think of electing a man loan important of-'
fico merely becauso ho is "a good fellow;"
ho should havo some qualifications should
be thoroughly imbud with the progressive
spirit of the age one who will stand up for
his rights, though hu is opposed on all sides,
one who cannot be huneu fugled into tho
support of any and every measure. Mr.
Cozad. we aro satified has nil these impor
tant requisites, and is tho man that the peo
ple want to represent them in tho Lcgitlu
tivo Assembly. Ho carries with him the
impress of a life of usefulness and fidelity
to his country, in tho advocacy of liberal
snd just principles.
The DiFrr.ni:.M'L'. Gen. Lano went to
.Mexico and too'c tho enemy.
Gen, Gaines went to Mexico and was
taken by tho enemy. Hut that is not nil;'
Gaines was taken prisoner by a negro Mox-
ican, at n timo when nil of his men wanted
to figh, and wero satisfied that they could
maKo ineir escape ; tnoy wisuea to no a
little fighting nt least beforo giving them
selves up to tli3so negro rufli ins. Gaines
would listen to nothing, however, but tu
submit to tho mercy of tho captors with
out firing n gun. Ho was taken to their
city and was permitted to have hU freedom
on his promising to not leave tho city.
They relied upon his honor, and ho was
treated as a prisoner of war, with all the
respect duo to his ruuk. Hut (Jiair.es took
tho first opportunity to steal from tho city
nud make his exit, leaving his brave com
panions to encounter thu distrust that wo'd
be entertained ngniust them through thu
infidelity of their fnitldcCH and dishonored
lender; nud from this brave (?) movement
of his he is seeking to gain capital in tlio
presout cauvt3. .
