LETTER OF SENATOR WILLIAMS.
On the -fib of this month we published
the lateTtepublican amendments, or ad
ditions to the Chinese treaty. The articles,
a3 published by us, were copied from the
Oregonian of the 7th of August, 1SC3, and
which, that paper then said, was the
treaty recently concluded between the
United States and the Chinese Empire,
and ratified on the 24th of July of that
year. "We accepted the statement of that
paper as a fact, and regarded the articles
published as a correct copy of that treaty ;
and, we think the Oregonian so regarded
them too, for. until within a short time,
that paper has not denied their correct
ness, but has been zealously defending
the Republican party on the Chinese ques
tion which has grown out of these addi
But finding himself in an embarrassed
Munition on this subject, the Editor of that
paper has obtained the assistance of the
llox. Geuvj;:: IT. Wiu-iams, who has writ
ten another letter lor the purpose of "fix
ing things," again. This letter was pub
lished in the Oregonian of the 7th iust.,
and from which it appears that, the pub
lished treaty was not a true copy of the
one ratified. He says :
During the administration of Mr. Buch
anan, and on the 18th of June, ltfoS, a
Treaty of Peace, Amity and Commerce''
was CGnjludeiTbetwccn the United States
During the late administration of An
drew Johnson. " additional articles'' to
the treaty of ISoS were agreed upon be
tween his Administration and the Plenipo
tentiaries of China.
When these "articles'' were submitted to
fhoj Senate the eighth one read as fol
lows : .
Art. 8. The United States freely agree that
'hinese subjects .shall without hindcrancc on ac
count of their nationality or relitrion, be admitted
to all schools, colleges and other public, educational
i nstitutions, without bcin:; subject to any religious
or political test; and on the other hind His
Majesty, the Knvpcror of China, agrees that, citi-
zensot'thc United States may freely establish
and maintain .schools in that empire at those
places where foreigners are permitted by treaty
I objected to this article on the ground
that it deprived States and local commu
nities of the right to control their own
schools, and upon my motion this article
was amended so as to read as tollows :
Citizens of the United States shall enjoy all the
privileges of the public educational institutions
mi'ler the control of the Government of China,
ami reciprocally Chinese subjects .shall enjoy all
the privileges of the public educational iustitu-
1i.ms under the control of the Government
;f the United States which are enjoyed in the
respective countries bv the citizens or subjects of
the most favor-.:! nations. The citizens of tiie
United States may freely establish and maintain
schools within the empire of China, at those
places where foreigners are by treaty permtted to
reside, ami, reciprocally, . iunese subjects may
enjoy the same privileges and lnimuniLic; in the
L nited States.
It is certainly a very strange inconsist
ency in the public career of the distin
guished Senator that he should be so zeal
ous in preserving the rights of States, and
communities in regard to schools, when
he is such a warm advocate of the pro
pored 15th amendment, which, if adopted,
will deprive the respective States of the
important right of determining what
classes of persons shall enjoy the elective
franchise within their respective borders.
Hut admit that Mr. Williams is a warm
State rights man on the subject of common
schools, but loyal to the core on that of
tin? elective franchise and universal suf
frage what then ? The change of Art. 8,
proposed by him. does not remove the ob
jectionable features of the Article. Take
cither the gmorJau version of this article,
or the one now offered by Senator "Wil
liams, and we find that it offers to the
Chinese the same rights and privileges, on
the subjects mentioned, that are enjoyed
by the citizens or subjects of the most fa
vored nations ; that it is a flattering and
substantial inducement to secure Chinese
immigration to this country.
Again, Mr. Williams says :
Article Cth of the additional articles,
when submitted to the Senate,' read as fol
Art. 6. Citizens of the United States visiting or
residing in China shall enjoy tlie privileges, im
munities or exemptions in respect to travel or
residence as may there be enjoyed by the citi
zens or subjects of the most taVoYed nation, and
reciprocally Chinee subjects residing in the
1 nited States shall enjoy the same privileges,
immunities and exemptions in respect to travel
or residence as may be enjoyed by the citizens or
subjects OF the most favored nation.
Objection was made to this Article be
cause it might be misconstrued" on the
subject of naturalization, and to avoid
any possible mistake of that kind, the fol
lowing clause was added by the Senate :
But nothing herein contained shall be held to
router naturalization upon the- citizens of the
United States in China, t,r upon the subjects of
China in the United States.
Well, what of that? Our treaties with
France, England, Germany aud other na
tt ns do nut naturalize and confer citizen
ship upon the citizens or subjects of these
countries. Naturalization is not effected
in this country by means of treaties, but
by the proper courts, acfiasuDdcr aiulby
the authority of tho UW3 of the United
States ; and we are not aware that any
person has claimed that the late Chinese
treaty would confer any such right upon
Chinamen visiting or residing in this coun
try. There being nothing in the treaty
which confers citizenship upon the
Chinese, we are led to inquire why this
additional port of Art. Clh mentioned bv
Senator Williams was added? We can
see in it nothing but a weak and miserable
subterfuge a blind; to induce the people
tv believe ti at the treaty ecpressly i:x
CUPKo the Chinese from tho righto of uat
uralization and fall citizenship in the Uni
ted States. But such is not the fact, for
it does not deny them the right, if they
apply to the proper authority. It merely
says that " nothing herein contained shall
be to confer naturalization" c, leaving the
Chinese, so far as the treaty is concern
ed, the same opportunities of naturaliza
tion that are enjoyed by the citizens and
subjects of ihe most favored nations.
Democrats do not condemn this treaty
on the grounds that it would confer citizen
ship upon the Chinese coming here, but
because it is the means of inducing large
numbers of that people to emigrate to this
country, and because other means are be
ing dovised to secure their naturalization
and enfranchisement, hereafter.
Upon the subject of naturalization our
laws at present provides a3 follows :
"That any alien, being a free relate
person, mav be admitted to become a cit
izen of the United States, or any of them,
on the following conditions, and not oth
erwise' And then follows the conditions referred
Now, if the Chinamen arc included with
the white races, they are entitled to natu
ralization under this law ; but if not in
cluded, they are not entitled to such natu
ralization. They are certainly not vrbite,
and a conscientious application of the
law would exclude them. Cut Senator
Williami says :
" That the Judiciary Committee -of the
Senate at the last session of Congress, re
ported a bill excluding Chine-e from nat
uralization." This is another political feint, made in
order to attract attention from the real
purposes of the Republican party upon
this China question. Have we any assu
rance that the reported bill will ever be
come a law, or, if it does, that it will not
be repealed within a year thereafter, cr
even lers time? And even if such a bill
should become a law it amounts to noth
ing else than a repetition of the present
law on the subject. The enactment of
such a law would not interpose a perma
nent barrier to the naturalization of Chi
namen, but, if incorporated in some of the
Constitutional Amendments, it might.
But is it not the intention of the Republi
can leaders to ultimately enfranchise the
Chinese? We think it is, and that such
intention is proven by the following pub
ic acts of that party :
First. The 11th Constitutional Amend:
ment is a Republican measure, and it
provides as follows " All persons born or
naturalized in the United States, and sub
ject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens
of the united States, and ot the State
wherein they reside.'7
"All persons" includes whites, Indians.
negroes, Chinamen and all other types
said to belong to the human family,, and
a person would think it sufficient to wipe
out all distinctions of race and color in
the naturalization process. Rut this 11th
Amendment, not proving sufficiently
strong and explicit for its purposes, the
Republican party has proposed another
amendment to the Constitution, to be
known as Article 15th, which is as fol
Section 1. The rights of citizens of the
United States to vote shall not bo denied
or abridged by the United States, or by
any State, on account of race, color, or pre
vious condition of servitude.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to
enforce this article by appropriate legisla
At the time this Amendment was under
consideration in Congress, the Hon. II
W. Cokbett offered the following, to be
incorporated as a part of this proposed
15th Amendment, viz :
"Cut Chinamen not born in the United
States, and Indians not taxed, shall not be
deemed or made citizens."
But Mr. Corbett's suggestion wes rejected
and we have the 15th amendment in the
shape above given.
Now, if the Radicals are opposed to the
latnralization of Chinamen, and if it is
not their intention to ultimately enfran
chise them, why was Mr. Corbett's sensi
ble suggestion rejected? Will Mr. Wil
liams have the kindness to furnish the re
In conclua.on, we have no hesitancy in
predicting that, if the proposed 15th
Amendment is adopted, within three
months thereafter, the word "white" will
be expunged from our naturalization laws,
leaving no barrier to the naturalization of
Chinamen ; and then, if the Chinese will
consent, they will be rapidly manufactur
ed into good loyal voters. The course
pursued by the Republican party in re
gard to the enfranchisement of the ne
groes and the present partiality mainfest
ed by that party for the Chinese, fully
warrants this conclusion.
Chinamtn "Voters In Louisiana.
At least one hundred and fifty China
men are already permanently settled iu
Louisiana. A dozen ar3 working for a
share of the crop on a plantation near
Natchitoches. Seme thirty or forty are
located on Bayou Lafourche, and gave
great satisfaction to their employers. Mr.
Tye Kim Orr, an educated Christian Chi
namen, who is teaching a large colored
school at Donaldsonville the only color
ed school in the parish, "we believe says
his countrymen are very desirous of pur
chasing land and setting up for them
selves. Chinese laborers are also em
ployed on two or three plantations below
In the Parish of St. Bernard there are
two colonies of Chinamen one on the
Bayou Marangonin, the other on St.
Malo. Several ot the former h ;,ve squat
ted on the Lake Borgue canal property.
They live in comfortable cabins, have
thrifty gardens, and patches of cottor,
corn and rice, but subsist mainly by fish
ing for the New Orleans market. Some
of them have Irish wives. They are of
the Catholic religion, and came from the
Phillippine Islands. Although they have
lived in the parish many years, 1 am told
by the clerk of the court that not one of
their number has ever been arraigned for
offending against the laws. As to their
right of franchise in Louisiana, that would
r-pnear to have been already settled by
the registration of seven of them and per
mitting them to vote on several occasions.
We find the above article in the Oregon
Sentinel, of Jacksonville, a Radical sheet.
The Oreaon Statesman of the 15th inst.,
another Republican paper, cor ies the ar
t;cle in a spirit of exultation, and with
taunts to the Democratic party, and with
a fling at the Irish.
It will be remembered that, the Regis
tration La.' is a radical institution, gotten
up for the purpose of ascertaining who
are loyal to the Republican party, that
they may be allowed to vole, and for the
further purpose of excluding from the
ballot box all those who are not loyal to
that party. Under such Registration Law
then, these Chinamen have been registered
and voted on several occasions, and
ihdr right to the elective franchise settled
in TjQiiisianaP Notwithstanding this, the
Press and the leading men of the Republi
can party have the brazen effrontery to
loudly proclaim that that party is oppos
ed to the enfranchisement of the Chinese.
At the time the Radical party was fas-
tening negro suffrage on the South, we

that party, that the negroes of the State
lately in rebellion, were enfranchised for
the sole purposes of securing the loyal re
construction of those States, and to enable
the negroes to defend themselves against
any tyrannical aggressions their lormer

But notwithstanding these assurances.
at the same time that Congress was fasten
ing negro suffrage on the South, that cor
rupt oligarchy quietly extended it overall
the Territories of the United States by a
little act which reads as follows :
" That from and after tho passage of
tills act, there shall be no de.iial of the
elective franchise in any of the Territories
of the United States, now. or hereafter to
be organized, to any citizen thereof, on
account of race, color, or previous condi
tion of servitude."
And this act of Congress is the sum to
tal of the proposed 15th Amendment, now
before the people of the United States.
It will be well to remember too, that the
1-tth amendment has been adopted, and
that it declares. " That-all persons born
or naturalized in the United States, and
subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are
citizens of the United States, and of the
State wherein they reside."
The Radicals are now playing the same
A NEW CANE.
Some of the citizens of Oregon City have
presented Major Adams with a handsome,
stout, hickory cane, to supply the place
of the one he broke over McKinneys
k,i t i,o cilvpr rlate on wnicn is
engraved the Major's name, and another
which has the inscription " For Lse.
We find the above in the local column
of the Oregonian of the lGlh inst.
Being one of the parties concerned in a
little difficulty which occurred in this
place a week or ten days since, wo had
hoped to avoid saying anything about the
affair. But upon reading the above local,
and making inquiry, we ascertained that a
subscription had been raised for the pur
pose of purchasing a cane for the indi
vidual named, and we presume that the
silver plating and motto part of the story
is true. also.
Could not some of these individuals
have furnished their friend with a six
shooter also labeled " for use ?" But per
haps this suggestion is unnecessary, as
that was probably done.
In regard to this matter we can truly
say that among the gexti.emkx found in
the Republican party in this county we
have many warm personal friends, for
whom we have the highest respect and
But then, there is another class of per
sons here who arc opposed to our politi
cal faith, but more particularly opposed to
us individually a class of lowr, sneaking,
cowardlv scoundrels, who are afraid that
we will expose some of their villainies
and as a natural consequence hate us most
bitterly. But they have not the courage
to attack us openly and like men, but
they will slander us, or stand behind the
screen and hiss on any low cur that they
can induce to assail, or in any manner at
tempt our injury, and to this class the
cane prescntaticn party belongs.
For such persons we have no respect
whatever ; and we assure them that we
will expose their rascalities, from time to
time as occasion may require. And to
these persons who were so magnanimous
as to purchase, embellish, and present,
that cane we would suggest that if you
wish to see us caned why not take the job
yourselves? You would have a short,
but interesting time of it.
In this connection we might remark
that some such person as we have men
tioned started the report that when we
chastised Adams we let him pass, and then
struck from behind. Such statement is an
unmitigated falsehood. The fact is ; we
were in front of him, and about a rod dis

less to its proximity to the mountain,
this part of the country has until very

unsurpassed fertility cf the soil, both of
the bench and ridge lands is attracting
hither an industrious, intelligent, and
highly respectable class of farmers. There
is here one sawmill doing very good
work. The mill formerly belonged to
Francis Revenew ; but it now belongs to
Robert Wilson, he having bought it of Mr.
