A Franlc Admission.
It will bo remembered that a short time
since, E. R. Hoar, present Atiorncy Gen
eral of the United States, was appointed
an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
of the United States by President Grant,
and assigned to a Southern Circnitbut
the Seriate refused to confirm the appoint
ment ; and it is said that all the Senators
fromClhe Southern States opposed the ap
pointment on the grounds that it was a
man to a SouthernCircuit. This is de
cidedly rich, when we take into consider
ation the fact that all of the present Sena
tors from the Southern States are northern
men. interlopers, carpet-baggers, who have
not one sentiment, or one impulse in common
with the natives of the Southern States.
In speaking of the refusal of the Senate to
confirm the appointment of Attorney Gen
eral Hoar to a judgship, the Xation, pub
lished in New York City, and the most re
liable Republican paper published in the
United Stes, says :
The southern Senators, then, who op
posed the President's selection must bo
held either to have defiled the appoint
ment of an unfit man, or else they must
have had some further reason which they
did not choose to avow. The former al
ternative is of course the most probable.
The truth must be told, however, that,
beneficial as reconstruction has been in
other respects, the class of Southern poli
ticians whom it has brought to tho surface,
and into whose hands it has given the
reins of government, are as poor a race of
men as ever . manipulated caucuses or
called conventions.' They form, in fact,
one of the most gigantic rings'7 at pres
ent existent in the country, organized in
the most careful manner throughout the
South, solely for the purpose ot perpetu
ating their own rule." This ring it is which
in the main elects every Southern Senator,
and it is, of course, in the interest of the
uig that the Southern Senaiorsovote.
What they wanted at this tinro was. not a
wise judge, nor a learned judge, nor an
upright'jiidge, but a judge of their own
kind ;Qnd we have no hesitation in saying
that they would have cheerfully supported
-the nowiinatioti of a native of Alaska, if
they could have had assurances that ha
would have decided casesj-n the -i carpet
bag" interest. The "shriek of locality"7
coming from these men is indeed onu of
the most amusing (hat was ever shrieked
in the political world, because tln-y owe
Qheir own seats to a party which has at
tained power by disregarding every claim
of the sort.
And again, it turther says in the same
To sum up all these various objections
in one he was objected to as having a
judicial mind. This was hts fault ; he was 1
not a rabid partisan. If he had been, he
would have been confirmed.
That is so. Radicals do not want wise,
learned, or upright judges 5 but seek for
judges of their own kind judges who
will, in defiance of law, jns'icr, and their
official oaths, decide in favor of their party
friends, and against Democrats. We have
too many partisan judges in this country
for the good of the country.' and still the
leaders of the partvQn power are still fur
ther trying to obtain a more corrupt and
partisan judiciary in order that Radical
frauds, perpetrated for the purpose of se
curing the success of that party, may go
unpunished. This is a horrible slate of
affairs for freeZAmerica, but it is so, and
we fully agree with the Xaiion in itseas
sertion that the Senate would have, cheer
fully supported for this judgship a native
of Alaska, if they could have had assur
ances that he would decide cases in favor
of the carpet bag interest.

that a piece of pork has been sent to that
office from Yamhill county, which is filled
with small sacs, orcfollicles, inclosing ani
malcule, and which the party sending it
thinks may be dangerous to persons eat

pork was placed in the hands of Dr. Wat

the examination, and writes to that paper
that he has found no trichina in the pork,

our rates the advertisement could not be
inserted for less than $2.50 in c6hi and
we returned the ' money." Since that
time we have received three letters from
this firm, requesting us to send them either
the paper containing their advertisement,
or return to them their money, each letter
containing a three cent postage stamp. As
before stated, we have returned thefty
cents, but if this enterprising company
will appoint an agent here, or in Portland,
who U authorized to receipt for the same,
we will pay the money again, and return
the nine cents postage stamps, in order to

So far as the charge of using money in
the last State election is concerned in thi.
e.onntv. we desire to refresh the recoiie
tion of our Republican friends. They all
must remember that one reason they gave
for their defeat was, that Stifzel, who had
their money to use, had thrown them off.
Put the Oregonian man says they propose
to raise money to 'circulate reading matter.'
This is all well enough, but what kind of
reading matter will it be ? We say. some
thing to deceive those whom they cannot
buy. Two years ago, they did the same
thing. Then they circulated " rcadlaq
matter'1 to make the people believe that
they were not in favor of negro suffrage,
or the principles embodied in the 15th
mendment. This was as reprehensible
as buying votes, but they dare not deny
that they did so. But it is " Democratic
Cheek" to mention these things. Yes, it
is " Democratic Cheek" for working men
to organize for their own protection. It
is " democratic cheek?' for any one to ask
an explanation with reference to the con
duct of the republican party. We trust
that there will be si. flici'uit "democratic.
check"' at the next election to satisfy the
radical leaders of this State, that they are
responsible to the people for their conduct.

Phelps N. Y.. (D;'c. 21) Correspondence of
Rochester Union.
GOur usually quiet little town was startled
on Sunday morning the 12th inst.. by the
arrival of a huge negress on the 10:10 ex
press, who claims that, she is the wife of a
young man (white) by the name of Phil
lip?)Gwbo resides here, and is quite re
spectably connected. As soon ft s her
presence in town became generally known,
a delegation of prominent Republicans
waited upon her for the purpose cf ascer
taining the facts in her case. She said
that she was married to Phillips at Lex
ington; Va.. her present home, some time
during the war. and that they lived to
gether about two years, when he express
ed a desire to go north and sec his friends;
that he left her and went north some
months ago, and that she was now in quest
of him. She produced a large bundle of
letters, which she said he had written her,
and in which he addresses Lor as his "dar
ling wife,' and closes with "your affec
tionate husband." Her Republican breth
ren who composed (he delegation told her
that she had better return home, as her
stay would disgrace Phillips' family. Her
reply was, " Am I not one of the family ?"
They felt the force of her reply, and their
hearts were immediately filled with love
as Phillips" undoubtedly had been for
their dark-skinned sister.
We understand they left her, promising
every assistance in their power. In slal
nfe the female " Fifteenth Amendment"
compares favorably with the Onondaga
humbnir. She dresses in the height of
fashion, and wears Phillips' picture on her
bosom. Phillips, although a white man,
is a radical negro of the Butler school.
His unfortunate family must feel deeply
the disgrace he has "wrought upon them.
II they sympathize with the political party
to which he belongs, we can only say :
"Open now thine eyes, and behold the
legitimate fruit of the Republican princi
ples you profess." We understand that
she has had several interviews with Phil
lips, but that .he is unable as yet to induce
him to return to her bed and board. We
are glad that the Republicans of Phelps
vindicated their doctrine in this instance.
and sincerely hope that if Thi'dips will
not return to the bosom of his3 "darling
wife," she will make a short visit to Indi
ana, return, and, with the help of Becchcr
& Co.. reward one of them, at least, for his
faithfulnees. " Let us have peace."

obtained whisky from some one who had
not the fear cf the law before him. and got
on a general drunk. They went to the
house of "French John." irear the residence
of W. T. Newby, and made very hostile
demonstrations, frightening John and an
other Frenchman until they tied, and
scunht refuge at Mr. Newby 's. Two of
the Indians pursued, and it was with some
difficulty that they were restrained from
committing some act of violence. They
were armed with guns, and fired one shot
while in the Frenchman's house. Strict
inquiry is being made (o ascertain where
they obtained whisky, and if the gujlty
party is found, he will be dealt with sum
