Too Many .Families to Support.
John I don't see why "vrc can't
o-et alonqj as well as vre did ten
years ao. I work harder, never
pend a cent unnecessarily and yet
1 find it a struggle to live. We
used to live plentifully, dress well,
and have' help for you. I could
avup something for a rainy day,
at" the end of every week.
Wife True, John ; but then you
only had one family to - maintain ;
now you support a great number.
J oh n A great number, do you
sav '? X do not understand you.
Wife Well, I will tell you John,
for von have worked-too hard, and
are too tired to read the newspapers
and too much harrassed providing
ior the lamily, to think and mves
ttirate. I said you now have to
help support -a great many families,
while in olden times you had not
any to labor ior but your own; bee,
then, there is the "Collector," the
LL J 1 il 11 t
who informs on your neighbors,
You have to support the families of
all these; help to buy pianos ana
silk for their wives and daughters,
and help to educate their children.
Then, tltorc is the " J3oml-holder,"
who gives champaign dinners, and
burdens his table with silver plate,
and travels in Europe, and pays no
taxes. And this he does on his
gold interest which is paid him
twice a year. And then, there is
the Ta rill-robber, who makes an
annual profit of a hundred per ct.,
almost all of which is a theft from
honest toil. So you see, John, after
vou crive a part of every day's earn
fns to ench of these purposes there
can't be a great deal left for your
family. You didn't have to give
your earnings for any of these pur
poses, when James .Buchanan was
jrc -sKient, ana so we uvea easny
John Why, wife, you amaze
1 T lw
me. I never stopped to think of
these matters, though I knew some
tiling was wrong. Nor do I now
exactly see how I am robbed for
tli esc purposes.
A Vile Well, John ; I'll tell you.
We used to iret coftee for ten cents
a pound now we pay thirty-five.
Wo use two pounds a week, and on
this .single article fifty cents are tak
en from your wages, and divided
between bond-holders, collectors,
assessors, and detectives. There is
a like addition to the cost of tea,
and of sucrar, molasses and rice
oKvcry addition to the price of these
articles is a tax imposed by the
government to raise money to. pay
bond-holders, collectors, assessors
and detectives. Every pair of
boots you buy you pay just double
price ior, and the extra cost goes
to the support of tarift-robbers, for
government leeches had no exist
ence in Democratic days. Our
rent, you know, is a great deal
higher; and the landlord savs he
had to raise the rent because he has
to pay income tax-, and higher for
U-a, coffee, sugar, and other pro
visions, than ten. years ago, when
he ivc us rent so cheap. Some
times you chew tobacco, or smoke
n cigar ; and for these you have to
pny just thrice what you had to pay
in Buchanan's time; and all this
extra tax is to enable bond-holders,
collectors, assessors and detectives
to live in luxury and idleness. So
you see, John, your week's hard
toil is made" to contribute to the
support of many families. It is no
wonder we live poor and fare hard
that wo sometimes have barely
the necessaries of life, and that our
children don't go to school because
wo haven't money to buy them
bo ks, and suitable clothing.
Exit John, determined to vote
with the party hereafter which de
sires that the laboring man shall
have a fair day's wages for a fair
day's work, and that the proceeds
shall go to the support of his own

a lingering regard for the old
"Wcatlier Record for Ten Years.
Mr. Thomas Frazer of Portland,
furnished the following weather
record for ten years past, to the Or
ecjonian. , In his introductory re
marks. Mr. Frazer savs :
As the impression is abroad in many ol
the States, and also in Oregon, that Oregon
has a greater number of stormy, or rainy
days, than any other State, I send you the
inclosed table of the weather, which I have
kept daily for the past ten years, beginning
April, 1853 ; which table will show that
Oregon baa a yearly average of G5 per
cent, of days without kain or snw. lie
sides this, a large proportion of the days
recorded under the head of " sunshine and
showers," were days in which persons
could follow their out-door vocations with
out serious inconvenience. Under the
head of "pleasant," no rain or snow fell
between sunrise and sunset Under the
head of "rainy,'' there was no sunshine,
and rain fell most of the time. Under the
head of sunshine and showers." are in
cluded days when apart or half of the
day would be pleasant, and part rainy.
I am aware that rain and snow fell during
the time between sunset and sunrisef also,
that many days which are marked rainy,
the nights would be clear and pleasant. I
think one-will offset the olherV I have al
so noted some of the extremes during some
years, which you can publish, if you think
them deserving of notice. I think a table
of this kind will be appreciated by per
sons interested in, or inquiring about,
