Too Many Advertiaomanta.
There is a class of Oregonians who urgo as
a reason for the meagre support they are will
ing to give Oregon newspaper, that “ they are
too much tilled up with advertisements.” We
propose to address ourself briefly to such peo
ple. In the fijrst place, we desiroask those
who complain of “ too many advertisments ”
if they would under any circumstances be
willing tqsee Oregon destitute of newspapers?
We presdimo therd aro none who could so de-
Than wo tell them that there is

constituents at anytime during bis entire
senatorial term of six years.
Politically considered, Mr. Nesmith’s career
as Senator has been consistent. He has man
ifested hiS devotion to the Union as it wasj in
all proper ways, and now returns to his con
stituents still devotedly attached to the prin
ciple« of liberty, union, justice and peace.
We take pleasure in extending our welcome
to the late worthy Senator on his return to.
resume his place amongst those whose interests
he has served so faithfully and well.
