A Wholesome Change of Sentiment in
Grant had 51,150 majority In Illinois in
the Presidential election of 18G8 and the
Legislature stood as follows :
From the BaUeviUe Democrat we learn
that the 2nd of November last, there wa3
on election in that State for members of a
Constitutional Convention, which resulted
as follows ;
democrats . .
Also that the citizens ticket in Perry
county was elected.
That Madison county nobly redeemed
herself by giving a large Democratic ma
jority all around.
That Jefferson county gave a Demo
cratic majority. -0
That Clinton county has elected the en
tire Democratic ticket and that Mr. Buxton
independent candidate for member of the
Constitutional Convention carried the
county by 900 majority over 'Mr. Barber
the Radical nominee.
In Marion county the Radicals made a
desparate effort to carry the county, and
particularly to re-elect their County Clerk,
but failed. The whole Democratic ticket
was elected except that of County Judge.
Williamson county went Democratic for
the first time in several years, by 75 to
That Franklin county did better for the
Democracy than at any election since 1861
electing the whole Democratic ticket by
au average majority of nearly 400.
STRATEGY, MY BOYS-
The remnant of the corrupt and once
powerful clique of this place are making
tiesperate enoris to regain tneir lost pow
er. This is manifest in various little cau-
ensings and other maneuvers among them
more particularly in a zealous en
deavor to increase the circulation of the
Oregonian in this county. So zealous is
this effort that that paper is sent free to
many persons wh'o refuse to subscribe for
it. . ..........
But in all candor, we will inform them
that their effort is labor in vain ; that they
never can recover their lost ground ; and
1 hat 0 all money spent in circulating the
Oregonian in this county, is spent for the
benefit of the Democracy. The animosity
of that paper to the laboring white men,
and the decided partiality and love which
it is continually manifesting for the
Chinese, will disgust the more sensible.
Republicans of the working classes, and
cause them to leave a party whose press
and leaders are so zealously contending
for Chinese immigration and cheap labor.
A nother ; Right-IIander" from Dana.
Speaking of the resignation of the golden-winged
Butterfly of the New York
sub-treasury, Dana deals another ' right
hander' at Grant after this fashion :
"General Grant will now have to con
sider who to appoint as General Butter
field's successor. No doubt the candi
dates will be plenty ; but we wish to call
the attention of the President to one sim
ple principle which he cannot safely de
part from in making the selection. It is
this, No man can be appointed who hag
made donations of money-Janisfs, horses,
tr anything else to General Grant or Gent-nil
Sherman, who paid over to General
(rant a large lot of money he received.
No matter whether the candidate be fit
and capable in all other respects, if he is
pecuniary benefactor of the President or
the general in the army, he must be stern
ly excluded. The dignity of the Presiden
tial office, as well as the good name of the
aetu.il President, has already been suffi
ciently damaged by disregard of this prin-
eiple, and it will not answer to disregard
it any longer. Every man who has given
gifts to the President or General Sherman
is thereby rendered morally ineligible to
any officer of power or emolument.''
The Philadelphia Age makes the follow
ing remarks :
It is well for ns to look sharply after
dnnr own interest in the Radical crusade
against free government. We do not
mean in its remote consequences, but in
its actual immediate effect upon us The
schemes now on foot in Virginia and Ten
nessee are for the election of bogus Sena
tors. It is only too true that there is a
certain apathy in the southern mind on
this subject. Knowing that the majority
in Congress is radical, the southern people
take little interest in elections that will
not effect any substantial change. It is in
the local State election that the people
of Virginia sought deliverance from the
vagabond plunderers who have won the
title of carpet-bagger. But that a hmw
of them shall sit in Congress is a matter of
Fmall comparative moment to lrginia. It
oi constitutional government itself that is
d. graded when it is made a mere farce ;
it is onr Federal interests that are in jeop
ardy when humbugs and imposters take
seats in the Congress of the United States.
The Senators whom Canby wants to put
in office are to legislate for ns in Pennsyl
vania, and tie the votes of our Senators.
Thus the profligate, dishonest carpet-baggers
who get into the Federal Congress
mrough force and fraud, will be as capa
ble of mischief to Pennsylvania or Cali-
u,ui iu Virginia.
. t?e democrats secured the Legislature

Drifting to ImpetlaL'sm.
That we have been drifting into a Mon
archy for several years, and that we are
now approaching Imperialism with Rail
road speed, must be apparent to every
thinking mind. In discussing this subject
the Bound Table reasons as follows :
In plain sooth, the age of sensuality, of
unchecked corruption, of dense, gross, ig
norance, is coming down on us like night.
A free pres3 should have given more notes
of waruing than it has ; but the press dis
likes in a free country, to print unpalata
ble truths, even when it discerns such
truth, and the journals that profess " fear
less devotion to principle" are notorious
ly the ones whose articles betray the most
laborious solicitude to catch the applause
and flatter the prejudice of the greatest
numbers. Meanwhile, at what are called
our "great centers," coarse unites, woo
ought to be digging railways, or drawing
hand-orts, lay down the law for the whole
community, and by dint of vast wealth,
amassed tinder circumstances impossible
in any other civilized country, degrade
the social tone, and spread in every direc
tion an unbridled rage for the pleasures of
Intellectual elevetion or ambition is
scoffed at and those who strive to incul
cate a taste for better things are either ha
ted or despised. Nothing is thought of
but the delights of the table, of fine
clothes, or showy dwellings -and equipa
ges In a -word, of physical raptures of
eery description. - If there is a pretence
at anything else whether in the pulpit in
the theater, or in literature the pill must
be gilded so as to appear 'sensational.'
All this is so widely admitted, so shame
fully notorious, that its recital is trite
enough ; we repeat it merely in elucida
tion of the subject under discussion. It is
impossible, when people think all things
of their bodies and nothing of their minds,
that either o democratic or any other pure
form of government can long be main
tained. Unless a great change comes over
the American people, it will not be main
tained by themselves. They are rushing
towards the precipice at railway speed,
and the universal corruption that good
men deplore is the prelude of decomposi
tion which is as certain as fate.
The Poor in Sitka. Last Thursday
Acting Mayor Storer and the City Coun
cil men made a visit through the city to
see in what condition or need the poorof
the city might be in at present. We are
pleased to state that the report that a num
ber of the Russians here wrere starving is
without foundation. Like all other cities
we have our poor who need a little assist
ance now and then, but we have but two
old ladies who will be a burden on the
city, one of whom is 107 years of age, and
is blind, and the other is about 100 years
old. These poor old ladies were very
thankful indeed to think that' the Ameri
cans are so kind, and when they were as
sured that in the future they never should
want for anything they were very grate
ful. There are about four or five other
persons who are in need, but they were
furnished with enough to meet taeir pres
ent wants. So much for the Sitka poor.
How Okoioe is Made. "Oroide,"' the
beautiful alloy resembling gold, is a
French discovery, and consists of pure
copper, 100 parts; zinc, or (preferable) tin
17 parts; magnesia G parts; sal-ammoniac
one part; tartar of commerce 9 parts.
The copper is first melted, then the mag
nesia, sal-ammoniac, lime, and tartar in
powder are added little by little, briskly
stirring for about half an hour, so as to
mix thoroughly : after which zinc is
thrown on the surface in small grains,
stirring it until entirely fused. The cru
cible is then covered, and the fusion main
tained about thirty-five minutes, when the
dross i3 skimmed off and the alloy is ready
for use. It can be cast, rolled, drawn
stamped, chased, beaten into powder, or
leaves; and none but excellent judges can
distinguish it from gold.
From the Walla Walla Union we learn
that Dr. Robert Newell died at Lewiston
on Sunday, Nov. 14th. He was born at
Zanesville, Ohio, in 1807, and was one of
the last of the early pioneers who crossed
the Rocky Mountains in 1835, and for a
few years lived at the Lapwai. He settled
at Champoeg, Marion county, Oregon in
1835, and was one of the members of the
first Legislature of Oregon, called together
under the Provisional Government. No
one's name is more familiar to the people
of Oregon than that of Dr. Newell. lie
wras a member of the Legislature of Ore
gon in 18G0, and was appointed Indian
Agent for the Nez Perce Indians in 1868,
over whom he has for thirty years exer
cised great influence. He leaves a large
family of Children, and one sister, residing
in Umatilla county, Oregon.
Democratic Editors just now are earn
estly discussing the question " What con
stitutes Hell ?" We know of no subjsct
in which they have, prospectively, a deep
er personal interest. Cosmos.
The discussion is closed, the verdict
pronounced. Hell, a place where radi
cal Senators and thieves were formerly
sent. Now full but the proprietor, an
original radical, promises to enlarge, as he
says he has many friends yet to come.
Hard Case. Two 1 young men made
application to the County Clerk this week
for license to marry the same girl. The
first came accompanied by the father of the
damsel, and a license issued. Soon after
the second swain made his appearance,
but as the lady of his love is a minor and
he didn't bring his intended mother-in-law
to sanction the proceeding, the poor
fellow had to go away with a heavier
heart and pocket than he had anticipa
ted. " 'Twas ever thus." etc. Times.

Complimentary. The Guard, of recent
issue, makes the following complimentary
allusion to the Enterprise :
Tha Oregon City Enterprise has enter
ed on its fourth volume. The Evtkrpprv
is a sound Democratic paper and from
appearance it promises to be a success
financially and otherwise. We w ish the
Enterprise abundant success.
The Radical party, not satisfied with the.
oppressions they have heaped upon the
producers of the country, have again ad
ded another stone to the weight that holds
him down in galling slavery. The follow
ing is amocg the late dispatches :.). t s.
The Internal Revenue Bureau decides
that farmers who go to market and sell
produce are to be considered biokers. and
must pay a special lax. Those who sell
at the place of production are exempt
from paying a special tax.
We b.ave repeatedly said that the main
object and wish of the party in power was
to reduce to beggery the yeomanry of the
country, and that the yoke of servitude
was only taken from the neck of the stupid,
improvident African and put on that of
the intelligent, free white American. Since
the advent into power of the reckless
Radical party, through the passive obedi
ence of our people, one nsult upon anoth
er has been heaped upon the country until
a more subjected, down-trodden people
lives nowhere upon the earth. They have
quiety submitted to the edicts one by one
of the Jacobin party, thinking that it
would be far better to make no resistance,
until they seem to be within the coils of
the aristocrats and men who think and act
for that serf-making party. When Amer
ica, in the days of Democracy, was free,
its citizens paid no license, nareTenne
upon the products of their industry, but
the country was governed ; but now, the
whole order of things is changed. No one
is benefitted but the governors. All the
wealth of the poor man is consumed in
paying tribute and taxes to the blood
thirsty leeches of power who compose the
Radical camp. Since 18G0. taxes have
been the order of nature. Taxes on your
productions, in way of licenses ; taxe3 on
your clothes, by high tariffs ; taxes on
everything you eat, wear and enjoy ; taxes
are your future institutions. In fine, taxes
on everything in the vast domain of na
ture we appropriate for the benefit and
enjoyment of man.
The late decision of the Revenue Bu
reau, that all farmers who take produce to
market must pay a license the same as
brokers, is the crowning act of infamy it
is coming home to your doors every day,
honest farmers. ' Will you stand and per
mit it? Will you pay a license to sell
your butter, eggs, pork, chickens, etc.,
that will be greater than the proceeds of
your labor? Will you allow the revenue
officers to prowl around the street corners
to catch every paor widow that comes to
town to sell a dozen eggs, to get the nec
essaries of life for herself and children,
and make her pay a ten dollar license ?
Honest men, of the Republican party, will
you remain within the fold of thieves, and
sell the last remnant of your liberty to
the bondholders ? If you do, we have
nothing more to say, for you are prepared
to sell life itself to gratify the calls of
party. Eugene City Guard. e '
TIIE NOVEMBER ELECTIONS.
The result of the November elections

which will have its effect everywhere.

old Maryland ! '"She breathes, she burns,''
she comes again, crushing the enemy with

This is but a hasty glance over the bat
tie- field, but we see enough to know that
we have achieved a substantial victory.
Where we have not completely routed the

A Man "Who Has not Slept for Four
A very singular case of wakefulness has
just been brought to our notice. I Joseph
Herr, a cabinet maker, about sixty years j
of age, has sot had a half an hours con
tinuous sleep for four ye'ars. The case
wras thus stated to us : About four years
since a daughter of Mr. Herr's became
very ill. and Mr. II., watched at her bed
side day and night, for six weeks, when
she died. All this time he took no sleep,
stating that he felt no desire for it. Afew
days after the death of his daughter he
ran a nail into his foot, and this confined
him to his bed for seven or eight weeks,
not an hour of which time could he ob
tain sleep. After his recovery from the
wound he still failed to obtain rest from
sleep, and so the matter continued to go
on from week to month, and. from month
tr vear. His health has suffered and he
complains of great debility. He applied
to a leading physician of this city, who
prescribed a powerful opiate, but it had
no effect upon him, as he says, than a snap
of his fjnger. He again applied to the
same physician, requesting that the dose
be increased. To this the physician ob
jected stating that it would be dangerous.
He said he did not care, and another opi
ate was prepared strong enough, it is al
leged, to put three or. tour, ordinary men
to sleep and never wake up again. This
had no better effect than the first, and the
physician refused to administer any more
doses of that kind, but advised his patient
as a last resort to get on a high old ben
der." This experiment has not vet been
tried, and it may be a question whether
he can swallow enough liquor to produce
intoxication, and soporilerousnes. Mr.
Herr is a sober and industrious man, but
in consequence of this malady is unable
to do any kind of phvsical labor. It is
certainly a strange case. Capital Chroni
