By an article whicli appeared in this
t-aper last week, over the signature of Mr.
Ireland, its former Editor and Proprietor,
the public was apprised of the fact, that
The EsTKitriusE had been transferred to
new proprietors. To give the full partic
ulars of the transaction, would be unnec
essary ; suffice it to sa j, then, that the es
tablishment has been purchased by some
gentlemen of this city, who will continue
the regular publication of The Weekly
Enterprise, and that the undersigned, has
been selected as Its future Editor.
Well knowing that it will be impossible
to produce a paper that will suit all the
various tastes, which exist in this, as well
as every other community, we assume ed
itorial control with dhiidence and many
misgivings as to the result. Eut having
accepted the position, we shall go to work
iu earnest, and endeavor to make The
Exteki-iusk au acceptable county paper.
And now, in compliance with the demands
of a time honored custom, we will indi
cate its future policy.
The perpetuity of a Republican form
of government iu the United States, is a
subject, in which all American citizens
have, or ought to have, a deep, and an
abiding interest. "We feel stich an interest,
and firmly believing that the policy of
the Democratic party, of the present time,
i3 better adapted, than any other, to se
cure that end, we shall advocate the prin
ciples of the Democratic party earnestly,
but courteously, so far as courtesy is
merited by the opposing press.

Therefore, in the discussion of political
principles we shall endeavor to avoid
calling hard names, and using the slang
style, into which, news-papers sometimes,
inadvertently fall, and instead thereof, we
shall state- the facts clearly and truly, as
they appear by the record, and then,
draw therefrom, natural and legitimate
conclusions. If others can conscientious
ly arrive at different conclusions on the
same state of facts, it is certainly their
right to do so. To add more on this
point, is unnecessary.
lly the payment of taxes, the people
furnish the money for the transaction of
the county business, and it is their right,
to know to whom, and for what this
money is paid out. We propose to fur

on thi3 subject.
In short, in all things, we shall cndeaT

A FUXXY ARGOIEXT.
The Orcgonian of July 29, con
tains the following funny argument

Cl'S alia encouraging v.hijj.u juh- j j
The following just observations j
are irom me ueau o.
" With owi-r nrriv.'i Or Clieai) lll-
nese labor, Americans and Euro
peans will bo promoted from drudg
ery to direction, from physical toil
to intellectual foremanship and
command. With every accession
of capital,hc diversity of the modes
in which it can be applied, and the
rapidity with which it can be turn
ed over, will afford, the capitalists
a larger income irom a less rate ot
profit. Poth the growth of cheap
r-i rit.nl and the immigration of
cheap labor, will lessen the cost of
t . i' n it .
production oi an xne uecossanes oi
life, aud hence will lessen thc nom
inal expenses of living. The Labor
Unions will be starting on a false
scent, therefore, if they consent to
drift into hostility to the introdue-
I tion of cheap Chinese or Asiatic
Our friends do not illustrate their
proposition, however, and hence
we hope that they will duly appre
ciate our kindness in illustrating it
for them thus ;
There are one hundred white men
at work on a railroad, or a farm, at
two dollars each, per day. I3ut
one hundred Chinamen come along
apply for this work, and get it from
the white laborers, for the reason
that they will work for a dollar
each, per day.
Then, according to the theory of
the above paragraph, the white
men will be discharged from the
drudgery and physical toil of the
work, the Chinamen will be em
ployed to do it, and the hundred
former white laborers will be im
mediately re-empioyed,at increased
wages, and be " promoted from
CVCTV China laborer.
Such talk may sound very pretty
and present a beautiful and desira
ble picture to short-sighted or un
thinking persons, but unfortunately
for the picture, the result and prac
tice are exactly the reverse of the
In the Woolen Factory, of this
place, many white men and 'icomai
have been relieved of the ''"drudg
ery and i ill vsical toil" bv Chinamen
who took it upon themselves for
less money than the white laborers
could take it and live by their la
bor, but none of the whites thus
relieved, have been promoted from
drudgery to direction, but on the
contrary, have been compelled to
seek other and harder fields of toil,
ere they could labor again, or
remain idle, and take the chances
Hundreds of Chinamen arc now
employed on the Oregon Central
Kailroad, occupying tlie places that
ought to be filled with white men,
yet these white men that have been
thus saved thereby from this "drud
gery and physical toil," have not
yet been promoted to take intellec
tual, or other command, over the
Celestials. Andthus It will be al
wavs. Yet, in the face of such facts,
the Republican Journals are zeal
ously endeavoring to allay the fear's,
and blind the eyes of the laboring
man, with the siren song that the
employment of Chinamen will im
measurably benefit him by promot
ing him from drudgery and toil to
intellectual foremanship and com
mand. What absurd nonsense.
Instead of laboring men being
i benefited bv the employment of
iv ' U -n i " n i
Chinamen, they will be deprived
thc means of subsistence for t iiem
selves and families. And all this,
too, to help the wealthy, and for
the purpose of fostering, in our
never lorni a harmonious part of
our social or political system.

had been poisoned, others, of them,
that her death liad been occasioned
by natural causes. Thanhs to the
news association and the telegraph
company for the speedy transmis
jon of this sad, but important in
formation. Yet there is one thiipjr
lacking in the telegram we WQuld
like to know how much the United
iStatifs paid to the Medical" Museum
of Washington City for such im
portant services. -

But, i;i order to prevent a like

will, no doubt, suggest to the next
Congress the necessity of submit

States, the following additional
Section I. If at any time here
after, the President's Mare shall be
taken sick, she shall have the right
to be attended by the Medical
Museum of Washington City, or
any other respectable physicians,
or physician, the same as any other
American citizen, without regard
to her stock, color, previous condi
tion of servitude, or place of na
tivity. Section- 2. The Congress shall
have power to enforce this article
by appropriate legislation.
An obscene sheet " up the Co
lumbia" says it's " a lie" to state
that Gift, the California who is
going to China- to get laborers for
the South, is a Democrat. The
statement Ave published regarding
his politics came from the Sacra
mento lie '(;(, a paper that ought
to know. Oreguitiart.
The Sacramento Hecoi'dh a very
loyal sheet, and acts upon thc
proposition that the end justifies
the means, whether,
foul,. or otherwise. Thus one rad
ical paper will start a false report
detrimental to some Democrat,
and per consequence, injurious to
the Democratic party, other radi
cal journals will publish it as a
solemn, truth, and then, when
caught in the falsehood, prove the
assertion to be a fact (?) by the
testimony of each other.
Radical conscience must be made

With Xr. Wright, of Newport, or

and received valuable information
concerning the parties mining for
gold on the Ocean Decah, above
and below the mouth of that Day.
Alining has been carried on at
different points between Tillamook
and Yaquina, for a year or so past,
and no doubt exists that immense
wealth can be derived from the
sands of the Ocean with good min
ing facilities and prudent inanage
mant. Tlie process for saving the
line gold must be perfected, and
the best means employed. At
present the gold is saved by wash
ing over copper-plates, blankets,
and the results iu some in

Miller was going out of thc store
Gibson kicked him in the rear of
his person. Miller died, an hour

Col. Gibson was arrested and held

the following facts : That Miller's
lung was found grown fast to his

much enlarged and diseased; that
two of the coats of which it was
