The gallant Democracy of the Ter.
ritory are entering into the approach,
ing canvass with that true spirit of de.
rotion to principle! which Is a harbin
ger of triumphant success, if we are
permitted to judge from the enthusiasm
manifested by the people, in favor of
Ckx. Lav, the standard bearer of
the Democratic partjr, for Dclegato to
represent Oregon Territory in the next
Congress. Tho spirit evinced by our
Irienda In other portions of the Tcrri
Jury, should be an example to those of
thie section. It is by organization alone
that any thing can be accomplished,
and we therefore appeal to the Democ
racy ofUmpqua county to organize;
toret the shackles that are binding you
to inaction, and lot your watch-word
be; "7b Amu! To Arm!" Let us put
be Democratic ball in motion, and
keep up the JefTereonlan fires until the
last tap of the dram is heard on the
battlefeld,
The Democracy of Oregon have a
great work te perform. The Demo,
cratto reputation of the Territory must
be tared from the blighting influence
f whig-knownothing despotism. Then
let as unfurl our banner to tho breeze,
ascribed thereon, opposition to the prin
ciple of proscription on account of birth
place or religious opinions, and stifle
the tyrannical brood of Whig-Know-
nothing measures, which,
weighed in the pulilio scales ami not
found wanting. He hits been twice
tlectod by tho volca of tho sovereign
peoplo of this Territory to represent
their Interests in Congress, anil duiln,
the period that ho Ima liven noting In
this enpneity, there has been more pub
lie acts pasted, unit more money np
propridti'd by Congrcai, through hi
great influence and untiling energy,
for tho advancement of the interests ol
the peoplo of this Tvrritory, than lot
any other two Territories belonging to
the United Statos. Wo do not nik the
peoplo to lako our say so alone, foi

to tho journals of Congress during the
tinio Glv. Lam; has represented thb

that ho has been un industrious and
fnllhful public servant, the hue nud crv

ing.
On tho other hand we have John P.
Gaines, nominated as tho whig nnd
know-nothing candidate, and standing
on tho broad platform of "Gen. John 1'.
Gaines ocainst the World!" A mm
who, in ull probability, would never
havo been in Oregon, if he had not been
sent hero with a commission in hi
pocket; a man who has inoro than once
betrayed tho confidence ille people, not
only oftl.it Territory, but of other por.
lions of the country where they have
entrusted him with their interests; n
man who kept the money appropriated,
for tho erection of tho public buildinK
in his own pocket!, Instead of opplviii"
it, as an honest and faithful servant ol
tho public would have done, to the pur
poses for which it was intended. For
the establishment of these facts, we alio
refer the people to the past history and
legislation of this Territory. Then, in j
tho face of all theso facts, will any lover
of correct principles and equal justice,
go to the polls on the first .Monday in
June, and declare by hit vote in favoi
of tho men and measures which have-
erected and presented tho gre.it plat-
form of "John P. Gaines against the

The doty of tho Democracy in this
contest is plain. The people of Oregon
have presented for their suffrages two
candidates for Delegato to Congress.
They have on tho one hand Gen. Jos
Lane, the nominee of the Democratic
party; a man against whoso character
as a private citizent or a publfo servant
no one can bring and substantiate n
alngjo charge; a man who baa never

SPEECHES.
On Wednesday night last, the citi
sens of Scottsburg and vicinity came
together for the purposo of hearing
some political speeches. Previous no
tice had been given of the intention of
Mr. Dryer, tho great expounder of tln
principles of tho whig knownnthiuc
party of this Territory, to virit thi
place. He was accompanied by .Mr,
Chinn. The latter .gentleman led off,
and informed the audienco that "Dryer
had como out South on a missionary
tour, and he came along to keep him
straight." Chinn then repeated the
stereotype arguments of the whig lead
era against democracy and in favor of
whiggery. He was mum on know.
nothinglsm. Gen. Lino como in for
a tirade of slang and abuse, and tin
Salem clique, at the whigs call it.were
spoken of in no very flattering terms.
He failed, however, to produce any en
thusiasm, and took his seat without
having been once applauded.
Dryer then held forth in his usual
stryle ; told the people ho was editoi
and proprietor of tho Oregonian, and
appeared to think that himself and the
Oregonian were "some pumpkins." For
a full report of his speech, wa would
refer crsons to tho columns of the Or
fgonian. lie "pitched into" the Ga
zcttc for criticising his "notings by the
way," Ho was silent on knownothing.
ism until asked by ono of tho nudienci
to cxpluin bis position on that question
Hou. A. C. Gibbs next addressed
tho people in an able and efficient man
ner completely refuting all the false
charges preferred against Gen. Lane ly
Chinn and Dryer. Tho audience wen
well pleased with Mr, Gibbs' remarks
and the very able manner in which hi
discussed the political topics of tho day;
and much moio enthusiasm was evinu
od than at any time during tho evening.
We could pluinly see that it was tin
fixed intention of a majority of (host
present to cast their vote: mi the firtl
Monday in Juno for Gen. Joseph Lutie
Col. W. W. Chapman spoko a feu
minutes, in an ii.tere&ting and eloquent
manner; the lateness of tho hour, how
ever, prevented him from speaking at
ald that 1 1 "if if I belong to a secret ;o
litieal ori ihalhn which is usually
called Audi wthings, but that was not
the real uajie of tlio oii'iinirntion, noi
was llie oter culled 'sons ol 70,' " mill
then wentu to say that thu secret polit
ical ogauL-eliou of which ho was a
member owe not proscribe foreigner
or Catholics llie'V hold that Americans
hould govern America, hut they nro no
lntitudiiiHrin)n their difiuitioti of tin
word American, that they consider till
foreigners wo limu been naturalized
ii ru American ; that fori igners sliuuld
bo Americnillivd beforo they are natu
ralized. i
The above liberal views, as cxprevrd
by Mr. Drver,U(iiteiidcdbyh!iiiilfnuil
other Icadi-ra.cf this order, as a 'gull-
trap' by which they hopo to gain the
votes of the fun ign born and Catln lio
citizens ofiliis Territory to:isihl them
, i
into power. It matters not whether'
the real nanw of this order is know-,
nothing, sum of '70, tint! democrats, '
or tiitiu'lliing !, Dryer says that it is
nmlly called know-nothing. 'WlmlV
in a iinme t' A skunk by any other,
would be no less offensive to tho olfac
tory nerves.
Dryer admitted that tho knownnlh.
ings of Oregon wero governed by the
same platform which it advocated by
tho knouuotlinga of Mumchuutt
and other Statu. We then enumerated
some of the diffrrencea between the
knownothing platform, as explained by
him, and tho platform which is pub
lished in tho Know-frothing and Amer
ican Crusader, nu acknowledged rr
gau of the know-nothings, published in
Huston. Tho subjoined is the platform
which appears each week at tho dead
of thu editorial columns of that paper:
1. Repeal of all naturalization laws.
2. None but NATIVE AMERL
CANS for office.
It. A pure American Common
tH-iioui nvstemr
4. War to the hilt, on Romanism.
5. Opposition, first and last, to the
formation ol Military Companies com
jwied of Foreigners.
u. 1 lie advocacy or a sound, heal
t!, y, and safe Nationality.
0. llos Hity to a'l I'apal Influences,
in whatever form, and under whatever
uamo.
8. American Institutions and Amer
ican Sentiments.
I). Mure stringent and cfiectivo Em
igratinn Liwa.
10. Tho amplest Protection to Pro
testant Interests.
Tbero are six others, but ai they are
only expressivo of tho same sentiments
we omit them.
Dryer said that the knownothing
platform does not say "none but native
Americans for office." When wo ro
ferred to tho above platform, lio do-j
nied that the paper referred to was tin
organ of the knownnlhings of Massa
chuetts. We have plain and palpable
evidence to prowito the satisfaction nf
vrry thinking man, that the Know
frothing aad Crusader is an avowed
,tnd recognized organ of that party.
Cho-fart that tho editor of that paper
was list year elected to the Legislature
if Maasachu setts, and occupied n seat
in that body during its Ust session is
lufficient to convince any person that
his paper is a knownothing organ.
If ho had not been supported by the
know-nothings he could not havo been
elected, for tho whole knownnthing
ticket was elected by largo majorities.
It is clear to every ouo who has hi
vestigated this mutter, that if thu whig
if Oregon cnuld command a sufficient
numerical .trcngth to control tho elec
tjons in this Territory, without tho aid
of foreigners and Catholics, tliev would
boas unrelenting and general in the
prosctiption of, all foreign-born and
Uatholto citizens as are thu sumo paity
'n tho Eastern States. Tho history of
tho past year shows that the know
nothing platform is so changed by the
whig leaders to suit the different local-
ties where they wish to uso it,HB to in
luenco tho greatest number of votci;
tin) thoso votes havo invariably been
iued to lit-lp tho whig leaders to gain
ho offices and spoils.
