the law on the subject is a very old
one, the mistake was one very liable
to be made. But it was an error to
ask its repeal for a special purpose,
and Grant exhibited his good sense
in not insisting upon a reply from

In other rept-cts, says the Oregon
ian, the President commences well.
He is beginning to fire some center
shots into the foul brood foisted in
office by Johnson, for which he has
the thatiks of the country. It is
not worth while to become excited
over the " situation' as everything at
"Washington is tranquil and the course
of affairs will soon begin to run smooth
It will naturally take a little time to
accommodate matters and jret things
into working order.
A bill was recently introduced
into the Senate of the United States
which provides that all steamships'
heretofore built and registered ia the
United States, or which may be built
in the United States within five years,
shall be released from the payment
of all dues and taxes to the United
States so long as they are employed
in transporting the United States
mails at a comppnsalion not exceed
ing the amount of ocean and inlnnd
postage, and exempts all materials
used in their construction or equip
ment from payment of duties and
taxes to the United States. This
become a law, and it will give an
impetus to ship building on Puiref
Sound which will be remarkably ac
tive, for reasons which we shall state
in a future article.

the party will lose its standing in op

lowflung and show that they are
the products of despicably diseased

GRANT AND TEMPERANCE.
Many of the friends of President j
Grant have been anxious to know
his position upon the temperance
question. His most earnest sup
porters have sought to impress upon
the public mind the fact that he was
strictly temperate in all his habits
the cigar question being left out in
order that his prospects in the can
vass might receive no injury. On
the other hand his political enemies
have assiduously maintained that he
was grossly intemperate. Now it
is a matter of little concern to us,
what his habits may have been in
years past, the qnt'Stion is what will
he do in his present position1? It
would not be strange, if as "a Ciptain
in the regular service, in the society
of jovial companions, he should fall
into irregular habits, but will he now
abandon those habits and maintain
the honor and dignity of the place he
has been called to fill. More than
once duriug the last few years a sad
spectacle has been held up to the
gaze of the American people. The
robes of office have been draggled in
the dust, aud the good sense of the
nation insulted, and we involuntarily
ask, as a new incumbent fiils the scat
of power, are these things to con
tinue? We do not presume to speak
authoritatively upon this subject.
All the evidence we can gather is
circumstantial. It is not in accord
ance with the character of the new
President himself to disclose all his
intentions, let irom the evidence
we can gather we are hopeful of the
future. We believe that we have a
President who is a temperance man
in theory and practice. We do not
sav that we believe him to be a total
abstinence man. We wish we could.
We do not believe tlut he will suffer
an cuemy to steal away his brain-,
who will not suffer his political
friends to become cognizant of his
secret purposes. In support of our
belief, we may be permitted to in
dulge in a little a priori reasoning.
In the first place, we believe that
Gen. Grant feels the responsibility
of his new position. To a careless
observer he may seem at times as
stolid as fate and assume the appear
ance of indifference to passing events.
Men accused him of this during the
trvinir scenes of the war. but be-
neath a calm and quiet exterior, he
seemed to know and to feel that
mighty issues were depending upon
his movements. In the greatest
crisis through which the nation pass
ed, he gave the evidence that he had
"a heart to resolve, a head to con
trive, and a hand to execute."
When others trembled through fear.
" He thought as a sage,
'Though he fell as a man.'
Though relieved from the excite-
ments of war, yet the voice of the
Nation has called him to fulfill the
sterner duties of peace, and can he
bear any less lightly the load that
rests upon him ? We believe a sense
of duty will compel him to devote all
the energies of his mind to the task
In the second place,w? believe Gen.
Grant has too much respect for the
feelings of the people, to allow him
self to become a slave to any personal
vices. He cannot be ignorant of the
reproach brought upon the office, by
the conduct of his predecessor. lie
cannot have forgot en how the Chris
tian sentiment of the people was
outraged, and the cry of indignation
that went up from all parts of the
laud, lie cannot be unconscious of
the position tie occupies as the repre
sentative of the party of order and
progress, and whatever his views and
personal habits may have been we
believe that he will seek to live with
out reproach in this one thing.
In the third place, we believe him
to be master of his own passions. Hi
has shown his ability to rule over an
army. We lack auy direct evidence
to show that he was ever disqualified
by intemperance for the position he
lilled. He seemed to be always
eady for action when the ruament
for action came. His record during
the war we hold as a pledge for his
upright conduct in times of peace.
But how do facts correspond with
this reasoning? We can gather no
evidence to subvert it, on the contra
ry our evidence sustains it. We do
not learn that he became intoxicated
aunnjr me urosress or the camnairrn
t - . ,
or after his election, yet his temper
ance principles were put to the se
The National Temperance Advocate
sets Gen. Grant down as a thorough
teetotaler, if his course at New York
during one of his late visits is a fair
indication of his usual practice. He
refused to taste wine at the dinner
iziven to Mr. Evarta at the Astor
House. He did the same at a dinner
given by one of the merchants of the
city. Bonner, of the Ledger, who
took him about the city, says he po
litely refused several gentlemen, the
honor of a "little sunthin" to drink
with them, at a fashionable hotel
where they stopped to warm. Let us
congratulate ourselves upon the acces
sion of a President who enters office
as a temperance man, aud if the devil
in human form ever holds a cup to his
lips, let us pray that he may have
strength to "light it out oa that line."
The following circular concern

A correspondent at Buena Vista
Polk county, leads us to understand
that that place would be benefitted
by the erection of a flouring mill, and
that the investment would pay.
There is also a good opening at that
place for a tin-ware and stove store,
and a cabinet shop. Buena Vista is
a flourishing country town, beauti
fully situated upon the west bank of
the Widlamet, in the heart of a fine,
agricultural region, twelve miles south
of Salt-m. It has at present three
black smith shops, three wagn shops,
a stone ware manufactory which pp.
duces the very best quality of goods
in that line, one dry goodg and three
grocery stores, one drug store. Oi.e
saddlery and harness shop, where
work is turned out that for quality is
equal to the best, a cooper shop, one
lodge of Odd Fellows, one of Good
Templars, and a flourishing organiza
tion of the Bind of Hope. There
is also one "dodgery" in the place,
but the proprietor having recently
been fined, had to pay nearly $100
for the luxury of retailing wihout a
license, in addition to which, later
still, he has been compelled to pay
penalty and costs amounting to about
$250 for selling to a minor, so it will
be observed that this branch of busi
ness is not prospering their.

Protection to Newspaper Publishers.
The following are the laws of Congress
touching the liability of subscribers to
1. Subscribers who do not give express
notice to the contrary, are considered as
wishing to rontinue their subscription.
2. If subscribers who have not paid, or
der their papers stopped. the publisher may
continue to send them until paid.
3. If subscribers refuse or neglect to take
their papers from the office, they are held
responsible until they settle the bill and
order the paper disontinued.
4. If subscribers remove to another
place without informing the publishers,
and their papers are continued to the
former direction, they can be held re
sponsible. 5.The Courts have decided that refusing
to take a paper from the office, or remov
ing and leaving it uncalled for is jrima
facie evidence of intentional fraud on the
part of the subscriber.
T Of course an important reason
with us in urging the duty of sustaining a
local paper, is that it innr?s to our advan
tage. But aside from any personal or pe
cuniary consideration, it is boib rigbt and
just to do so. A l&cal paper many times
contains that most important to those in
the country. It is made up. and must nec
essarily be so. of that kind of matter that
is mot interesting to our citizens. Even
the local notices bare a value that is not
found in the loreign papers. So also the
weekly record of deaths and marriages,
and the numberless items of incidents
daily transipiring around us. All these
make a loeal papei interesting. That me
chanic or farmer, or merchant who hasiily
says "it is a one-horse concern," has no
ust conception of his own position, or has
au inordinate a npreciaton ot bis own
importance and what is necessary to his
mental aliment. Ten chances to one that
such a person does not read his foreign pa
