Ah ! years have eorce and gons, dear Tom,
The past seems like a dream,
Since yoa and I toireUier met
Down by the winding stream ;
When hand in hand we promised, Tom,
To each we would be true;
Old T ime has made no change in mej
I'm srtiSl a friend to you.
IIow often have I wept, denr Torn,
When thinking o'er the joys.
The happy scenes of long ago, you aad I wer boys;
Bat now I'm told you're very poor,
And your days in life are few,
It gives me joy to meet you, Tom.
I'm still a friend to you.
Old friendship often withers, Tom,
Whene'er a man grows poor,
The rich and proud forget "old friends,"
And know them then no more,
But keep that honest heart of yours,
We'll make old friendship new;
I care not vvhal the world may say,
I'm still a fiiend to you.
I'm still a friend to you dear Torn.
Alas ! there are but few
Have ever been as true and kind
As I have been to you. -

It is now nearly live months
since 1 left Portland, since which
time I have crossed the continent,
visited many of the States, and
their principal cities and towns, and
spent over three months in tiie
National Capital, and candor com
pels me to admit that in all niv
travels I have not seen a city or
town, of the size of I'ortland, that
exhibits anything like the unmis
takable evidences of thrift, healthy
vigorous enterprise, unl vitaliz
ing enerofv tending to rapid growth
aiid permanency, that must be evi
dent to the most casual observer
in reference to our metropolis; nor
have I seen any place that has for
a moment caused me to regret
that my lot lias been cast in Port
land, Oregon; and it is a painful fact
that notwithstanding the absolute
greatness of our State in all those
substantial elements that, in our
climate, soil, and various resources,
combine to speak her present great
ness, and prognosticate for her a
brilliant future, we are scarcely
known on this side of the conti
The manifest ignorance of the
people here of Oregon as a State,
her territorial extent, resources,
trade, commerce, and population,
is so apparant to every one who lias
ever lived m uregon ami suose
cpiently traveled through the East,
that it is really surprising. Our
State is regarded here, more as an
isolated dependency, cut olf from
the United States, than as a young
but vigorous enterprising State,
destined, as it is, at no distant day
to become the star of the Pacific.
A few days since I stepped into a
dry ooods store m this city to
make a small purchase. The gen
tleman at the counter appeared in
telligent, and much inclined to con
versation and withal inquisitive;
and he finally, inquired where
I resided. I answered him, ''in Or
egon," and you should have seen
the expression of astonishment
that covered his countenance as he
started back and said, '"what, in Or
egon? wav out in Oregon Territo
ry?" and he gazed at me as though

These are lutt fair samples of the
questions daily propounded to Or
egonians traveling on this side of
the Rocky -Mountain by men to
whom are accredited an ordinary
amount of intelligence. Of course
there are persons" all through the
country that have a fair understand
ing of the extent of our resource,
population and t rade, hut -ihey are
the rare exceptions, while-the great
mass are slumbering in a state of
the most inexcusable ignorance in
reference to these matters. And
those Oregonians who will exert
themselves to brinix before the
minds of the people of the Atlantic
States, whose crowded thorough
fares and well filled colters must
compel them to seek new homes
and new-fields of investment for
their surplus funds, the many ad
vantages that are presented with
in the limits of our State, whose
slumbering resources are lying to
a great extent dormant, awaiting
the touch of the vitalizing influen

ocracy predicted a rupture between
President Grant and the Union
Republican party, their prophecies
have wholly failed and their hopes
have H' vanished into thin air."
The modification of the tenure of
office bill as finally agreed upon
by Congress and approved by the
President, is the result of a perfect
understanding prior to the passage
of the bill, between the President
and the dominant party in both
Houses. And while many mem
bers of the Union party in both
branches of Congress Avould have
preferred a total repeal on account
of their implicit faith in the new
President, the majority, whose
faith in the Executive was no less
implicit, preferred a modification
in order that the great overshadow
ing principles of our government
embodied in the original law might
be retained in some form upon the
statute book of the nation ; and in
this decision of the majority, which
I regard as eminently wise as :the
recognition and perpetuity in legis
lative form of the vital principles
of our government, is infinitely of
greater importance than any mere
compliment to any living man,
however good or great, the minor

Those, therefore, who hope for

friends the great Union Republi

of the leading measures of that

of its government alone to his ar

J great overshadowing law of the
laud, by the light of which this
government is to be administered,
Ave may now confidently hope for
a new era indeed, wherein our Re
public will move forward under
the guidance and control of that

Within the past week I have
stood upon the heights of Arling
ton, a solitary mourner at the
grave of a loved brother whose
young life was crushed out beneath
the burning plowshare of war, and
as I gazed in sndiiess upon the
white headboards that there, in
that silent city of the nation's
dead, stood in lengthening columns
like angel sentinels sent from the
world of light to guard the last
resting place of the fifteen thou
sand noble patriots who perished
in the wild conflict of arms, and as
I lilted my eyes toward the glori
ous emblem of our. nationality
which they died to save, and which
through the grateful remembrance
of this nation floats day by day
in sublime beauty over their hon
ored graves, I felt more than ever
before that it was good, and great,
and glorious to die in contending
for a cause so pre-eminently grand
as the preservation and perpetuity
of our nation's life, and the trans
mission to posterity of the invalu
able heritage of human liberty and
free government ; and -when I re
flected that the great Union Re
publican party stood by these
noble men while thus battling for
the right, and the Democratic
party occupied a position just the
reverse, 1 feel an overpowering
conviction in my mind that the
one deserves and would receive
the future sympathy and support
of all good men, while the other
deserves and would receive their
everlasting condemnation.
During the last ten hours of the
late Congress, as you have already
learned by telegrams, the long
continued tight over the passage
of what is known as the East Side
Railroad Rill come to an end by
the passage of the bill by both
Houses of Congress, and the ap
proval by the President, although
the advocates of the A Vest Side la
bored long and faithfully, for
which they deserve much credit
rom the West Side Company, the
bill passed both Senate and House
bv an almost unanimous vote. The
great hope of the West Side was,
that they could prevent action on
the bill by a well devised system
of tactics; such as talking against
time, dilatory motions to amend,
etc., but this, fortunately for the
people ot the State generally, did
not prevail, and although it had
the euect of prolonging the hght,
it did not eventually prevent the
passage of the bill.
In this connection I desire to say
a lew words personal to senator
Williams, as I understand that he
has been condemned by some of
those interested in the West Side
Company, for the active support
he gave to this bilh This is un
just in the extreme, and must so
appear to every sensible, unpreju
diced raiiKl, who will take the
trouble to investigate the facts in
relation to this railroad contro
versy, and the bearing which the
law just passed has upon it. This
law, of course, only relates to the
land grant of July 25, 1SGC; by
the terms of that act, the grant
was to go to such company or
ganized under the laws of Oregon
as the Legislature might designate
the law provided further that
the company designated should file
its assent in the Department of
the Interior within one year from
the date of the passage of that act.
The west side claims to have been
designated by the Legislature of
1S66, and to have filed its assent
within the year. This is the claim,
but what are the facts? The Leg
islature of 18GS decided, and very
correctly too, that the west side had
no existence during the session of
1SGG, and that they were not des
ignated. The Secretary of the In
terior decided, January 20th, 18G9,
precisely the same thing, and also
decided that unless our bill, or
something similar to it, passed
Congress, and became a law, that
neither company could get the
land grant, that the State would
lose it, and it would revert to the
general government. The Legis
lature, in the meantime, had desig
nated the Fast Side, but the time
for filing assent had expired ; what
then was proper and right to be
done, and what, I enquire of the
people of Oregon, should Senator
Williams, or no other Senator
having the general good of the
whole State in view, and the ad
vancemnt of no particular com
pany to the prejudice of any other,
have done ? Should he, I enquire,
have taken the position occupied
by the advocates of the West
Side, and refused to do anything,
and that, too, in the face of the de
cision of our 'Legislature and the
Secretary of the Interior, that such
a course would lose the grant to
the State? or should he not rather
have done just what he did do
advocate the passage of a bill that
would save the grant to the State,
leaving to the department and the
courts which company was proper
ly design a ted ? t
Is not this fair, just and right ?
Can any man reasonably object to
it ? Rut, say the West Sider's,
the effect of this act is to give its
grant to the East Side Company.
This may be true, and in my judg
ment it most unquestionably is
true; but it is not true if the claim
of the West Side, that thev were
properly organized and properly
designated by the Legislature of
1SG0, is true, because this act gives
the grant to the company that was
so organized and designated. And
if the Department or the courts
should hold that the West Side
were so organized and designated,
then they under this act will get
the grant, and they in such event
ought, in my judgement, to have it.
If, on the contrary, the Depart
ment and the courts should decide
that the West Side were never de
signated, if that company have
faith enough in the correctness of
their position to ever attempt to
contest the thing, then I submit
that they are not entitled to it and
ought not to have it. Rut suppose
this act had not been passed,
would the West Side be any bet
ter olT? Certainly not, because in
that event neither company would
get the grant, and through a fool
ish controversy the State would be
deprived of the means of getting
a railroad. Senator Williams in
stead of being blamed should re
ceive the unanimous approbation
for his course in relation to this
matter of every citizen of Oregon,
who places the interests,of the
State at large above the petty con
siderations of this or that particu
lar company; and especially have
the people of Oregon reason to re
joice at the success of this measure
as it ;Ilslircv the road beyond a que
tion at no distant da v. -as 1 sta
ted in my last letter, without go
ing into details, iron in large quan
tities, will be laid down in Oregon
by the contractors of the East Side
road at no distant day, and in am
ple time to have a good portion of
the line in running order next fall.
On Tuesday last Mrs. President
Grant held her first reception in
the White house, and I am very
proud to say that on that occasion
Oregon was accorded a most dis
tinguished compliment, as Mrs?;
Senator Williams .was, by special
invitation, the chief assistant to
the right of 3 Irs. Grant at this bril
liant reception, where thronged
not only hundreds of the leading
men and women of this nation, but
representatives from nearly every
civilized nation on the globe. Xot
a little jealousy was created by the
selection of Mrs. Williams, and very
many Mrs. Senators who fancy
they are entitled to preference, did
not succeed very well in concealing
their re-jrret that they were not
the favored ones. This compli
ment has a double, aspect; while it
is a most deserving one to her per
sonally, for her intelligent and lady
like demeanor in Washington, it is
an evidence also of that high re
gard in which Senator Williams
is held by the President of the
United States, and from close ob
servations during my three months
stay in Washington, I have no
hesitation in saying that Senator
Williams has no superior, in point
of ability and influence, and very
lew equals in the Senate of the
United States, and well may our
htate feel proud ol such a Senator ;
and while it is expected that the
Democrats of Oregon will, in 1870,
do all in their power to defeat any
radical, I am free to give it, as mv
opinion, that the Union party of
the State should be as one man m
laboring for his re-election.
Having fully accomplished the
purpose for which I came to Wash
ington, I shall, on Monday, leave
for Oregon.

James Fisk, Jr., the now great
theatrical manager and speculator',
and Jay Gould, who, a few years
ago, were the "brokers" of Daniel0
Drew, with only a trifle of capital,
now actually control him and the
street, and have probably a capital
of 'thirty millions oT dollars',-raised
through the use of foreign ex
change. They have just made a
"corner" in Government bonds,
and forced the houe of Jay Cooke
fc Co., and some other large bank
ing houses, to cover whatever short
interests they had out. They "go
in" and buy gold by the millions;
and these same parties Gould fc
Fisk had the fight with Commo
dore Vanderbilt for the past sev
eral months, and finally threw a
flag of truce, resulting in an armis
tice, and are now apparently work
ing together in new dodges to
"milk the street" and suckle the
"bulls and bears." Gould & Fisk
have now an agent in London, ami
it is believed by the knowing that
they were the means of advancing
the price of Government securities,
both in London and Frankfort-on-the
Main. I heard that in one Jioxir
Fisk made one million of dollars
on a turn in "Erie."
Pacific Mail has dropped froni
122 to 102, on a big bull and bear

sold out a large amount of stock
before the "drop fell," and didn't
get the "hang" of it; and the bulls
say tnat tne large snort interest m
it and the "merits" will carry it up
to 150 ; per contra, the bears say
that the "Pacific Railroad" in ope

This being the case, I am going;

I'll make both ends meet.

A Peddler Leaves jus Pack.-
A short time since, just at dark,
a peddler, carrying a large pack ,
appeared at the door of a wealthy
farmer in the town of Gresen Gar
den, in this county, and requested
the privilege of remaining over
night. The farmer being away
from home, he was informed by the
hired man that he could not stay,
lie then requested the privilege of'
leaving his pack until morning, as
he was very tired and could not
carry it further that night. This
was granted, and it was deposited hi
the corner of the sitting-room. Dur
ing the evening one of the fe
males of the household had oc
casion to iuove it, and taking hold
of it discovered that there was
something suspicious about the
contents. The hired man was
called, and upon taking hold of it
found that it contained a man.,
lie quickly stepped into an adjoin
ing room, and returning writh a re
volver, motioned the family to
stand aside, and at once proceeded
to fire three shots into it, A pierce
ing shriek issued from it, and on
ripping olf the outside covering a
man with a large bowic knife and
revolver clenched in his hands was
found weltering in his blood. Two
of the shots had proved fatah.
Toe neighbors were alarmed, but
no traces of the peddler 'who left
the precious pack could be found

ed. It was doubtless a plot to rob
the farmer, as it was known, that
he had a large sum of money in
the house. Afi inqut was held
over the body on the following
morning, and the verdict was that
the killing was a justifiable homi
cide. No clue leading to the dis
covery of the name of victim or
his accomplice has as yet been as
certained. Such summary justice
is seldom meted out to the guilty
