?0nCdiiat8fcr Governor!
and what his Present Admirers
and Supporters Said of Him 856
To his Excellency Franklin Pierce
I resident of the United States :
Hovoued Sir: AVc, the under
signed democratic members of the
Council and House of Representa
tives ofthe Territory of Oregon:
would most respectfully but earn
estly pray your Excellency to re
move the present incumbent, Joel
a aimer. Iiom the nfheo nf
, "'ui mt; uniri! or k innr n-
lenuent ot -Indian affairs of this
1 erntory. Thi
sir, we ask, am oner
others, for
me iouowmg reasons.
io wit :
the said
A. . O " J
the official conduct of
Palmer, dur intr the two
years last past, abundantly satisfies
our petitioners that he, said
1 aimer, is unqualified for the
proper discharge of the duties of
said office. And in support of this,
our unanimous judgement, we beg
leave to state to your Excellency
the following facts, to wit: He,
said Palmer, in forming treaties
with Indian tribes within this Terri
tory, has, in entire and wilful disre
gard of the expressed unwillingness
of the recognized chiefs of tribes to
assent to, or sign, proposed treaties,
recognized other Indians as chiefs
of their respective tribes, and re
ceived their signatures to his
treaties, being told, at the same
time, that their acts were not and
would not be approved by either
the legitimate chiefs or their people;
which, together with other foolish
and visionary acts and movements
on his part, has greatly contributed
to produce the present In-
1 -
ban war, and to bring up
on the defenceless inhabitants of
this frontier the combined power
and hostility of a horde of ruthless
savages. And, what is still more
inexcusable and unendurable, the
said Palmer is, at this moment, en
gaged in efforts to purchase the
and claims of citizens residing on
the west side of the Willamette
valley, and contiguous to the coast
range of mountains,with theavowed
intention of bvino-inir thousands of
Indians from remote parts of the
country, and of colonizing them in
the heart of this, the Willamette
valley ; and this, too, despite the
i-emonstrance of the legislative as
sembly, and of our const ituents
the men, women, and children of
the Territory.
Second. We would also further
represent to your Excellency the
fact that the said Palmer, repre
senting himself to be a sound na
tional Democrat, received through
the recommendation of such Demo
crats, residents of this Territory,
his appointment from a Democratic
administiation. Rut, through a
spirit of political perfidy, ingrati
tude and meanness, he, the said
Palmer, did, about one year since,
join the Know X'othings; and, hav
ing bound himself with the perfidi
ous oaths ot that dark and hellish
secret political order, has faithfully
kept his oaths by neglecting to
vote for the nominees of the Demo
cratic part', and by appointing
incompetent Know-X'othing Whigs
to office, to the exclusion of sound,
worthy, and competent Democrats.
In consideration of which said fore
going reasons, we earnestly pray
that the said Palmer may be
promptly removed from the said
office of Indian superintendent, and
that Edward R. Geary, a sound,
consistent, and reliable national
Democrat, and an able and worthy
citizen, may be appointed in his
stead. And we will not allow our
selves to believe for one moment
that our prayer will be disregarded.
Grant this our petition, and we,
your Excellency's Democratic
friends, i-eprcsenting the people of
Oregon in the legislative assembly,
will,as in duty bound,ever pray, A: c.

If these men told the truth, then,
when they charged Palmer with
"a spirit of political perfidy, in
gratitude and meanness," we
should like to inow what has since
occurred in his political life to
change their opinions.
Boise might try to argue the seal
off the bond, while Rurkhart, Har
rison, Peebles, and others, would
simply try to lie it off Their
names stand upon the record, and
they must admit that under the
iasn or party nictation they are
now supporting a man for Gov
ernor whom they have deliberately
damned as both dishonest and in
competent. Let the people read
and ponder upon such facts.
And what is a more striking fact
concerning the above memorial, it
is said to have emanated from the
pen of R. I. Boise, and is a sped
men of the malignant hatred of
Boise towards Palmer at that time,
as well as his absolute want of con
fidence in Palmer's personal and
political honesty; but as politics
maKcs strange ncu ieliows it is
more than probable that Boise will
support Palmer at the coming elec
tion with a zeal apparently real.

This blabbing spindleshank
joker who is leading the forlon
Morgrel hope for Congressional
honors in Oregon, is now in Port

the canvass. Jo. Wilson enjoys
the widely known and justly earned
reputation of being a dirty black
guard. There may be a few in
Orego who would vote for Jo.
upon this single qualification, which
seems to be about the only one he
is known to possess. If the people
are disposed to place sole reliance
upon the author of nasty stories,
while the destiny of the Republic
is weighing in the scale, it spe.-iks
but poorly indeed for the pariot
ism and good sence of our people.
"While Wilson is here upon the
stump let him refute some of the
charges, at least, that have already
been brought against him. Eor
instance we would like to hear
from his own mouth, an explana
tion of why he borrowed gold from
the Orphans School Eund,and paid
it back in greenbacks when at a
low figure, while he was drawing
his Judge's salary, under his own
ruling, in coin. If greenbacks are
forced upon orphan children in re
turn for the gold borrowed of them,
why are they not, in a legal and
moral point of view, good enough
for Judge's salaries? If it be true
that Wilson jumped the Erench
man's farm, near Waeonda, in this
count)-, while the owner was absent
temporarily, and realized a hand
some sum of money by appropri
ating the owners improvements as
well as the claim? Why not, if
the said Radical Congress candi
date is opposed to repudiation,
reimburse the injured Erenchman
by paving him the amount of his
loss? Euthermore, if Roxana's
(negro) baby was deserving of a
suit of clothes, ought not the ebony
urchin, after the laspse of six years,
be clothed afresh ? It is only once
in a while that one has an appor-
tunitv of vindicating himself; he
should avail himself ot it when
the privilege is thrust in his way.

18") 8.
Wiiekeas, Since the conclusion
of the treaty between the United
States of America and theTa-Tsing
Empire (China) of the 18th of
June, 1858, circumstances have
arisen showing the necessity of ad
ditional articles thereto, the Presi
dent of the United States and the
august Sovereign of the Ta-Tsing
Empire having named for the pleni
potentiaries, to wit: The President
of the United States of America,
William II. Seward, Secretary of
State, and his Majesty, the Em
peror of China, Anson Burlingame,
accredited to his Envoy Extraordi
nary and Plenipotentiary, and Chil
Kang and Sun Chia-Ku, of the sec
ond Chinese rank, associated High
Envoys and Ministers of his said
Majesty, and the said Plenipoten
tiaries, after having exchanged
their fall powers found to be in
proper form, have agreed upon the
following articles :
Art. 1. His Majesty, the Em
peror ot China, being ot the opin
ion that in making concessions to
the citizens or subjects of foreign
powers of the privilege of residing
on certain tracts ot land, or rest
mg to certain Avaters of that em
pire for purposes of trade, he has
by no means relinquished his right
ot eminent domain or dominion
over the said land and waters,here
by agrees that no such concession
or grant shall be construed to give
any tower or party which may be
at war with or hostile to the United
States the right to attack the citi
zens of the United States or their
property within the said lands or
waters, and the United States, for
themselves, hereby agree to ab
stain from offensively attacking the
citizens or subjects of any power
or party or their property, with
which they may be at war on any
such tract of land or waters of the
said empire ; but nothing in this
article shall be construed to pre
vent the United States from resist
ing an attack by any hostile party
or power upon their citizens or
their property. It is further agreed
that if any right of interest in any
tract of land in China has been or
shall hereafter be granted by the
Government of China to the U"nited
States or their citizens for purposes
of trade or commerce, that grant
shall in no event be construed to
divest the Chinese authorities of
their right of jurisdiction over per
sons and property within said tract
of land, except so far as that right
may have been expressly relin
quished by treaty.
Art. 2. The United States of
America and his Majesty, the Em
peror of China, believing that the
safety and prosperity of commerce
will thereby best" be promoted,
agree that any privilege of im
munity in respect to trade or navi
gation within the Chinese domin
ions which may not have been
stipulated for by treaty, shall be
subject to the discretion of the
Chinese Government, and may be
regulated by it accordingly, but
not in the manner or spirit incom
patible with the treaty stipulations
of the parties.
Art. 3. 'I he Emperor of China
shall have the right to appoint
Consuls at ports of the United
States, who shall enjoy the same
privileges and immunities as those
which are enjoyed by public law
and treaty m the United States by
the Consuls of Great Britain ami
Russia, or either of them.
Art. 4. The 29th article of the
treaty of the 18th of June, 1858,
having stipulated for the exemp-l
tion ol Christian citizens of the
United States and Chinese con
verts from persecution in China on ;
account of their faith, it is further
agreed that citizens of the United
States ia China of every religious
persuasion, and Chinese subjects in
the United States, shall enjoy en
tire liberty of conscience, and be
exempt from all disability or per
secution on account of their relig
ious faith or worship in either coun
try. Cemeteries for sepulture of
the dead, of whatever nativity or
nationality, shall be held in respect
and free from disturbance and pro
fanation. Art. 5. The United States of
America ajid the Emperor of China
cordially recognize the inherent

tion for these purposes. They con
sequently agree to pass laws mak
ing it a penal offense for a citizen

subject to take Chinese subjects to
the United States or to any other
foreign country, or for a Chinese
subject, or a citizen of the United
States to China or to any other
foreign country without their free
and voluntary consent respectively.

Done at Washington, the 4th
day of July, in the year of our
Lord, 18G8.
William II. Seward,
axsox i lt rlixo ame,
Go for Him. Where is the Rev
erend or eminent man who will
"put a head" on the editor of the
Yolo Mail for the following:
As our other shirt was not
brought home in proper season this
week we called on our washer
woman to learn the cause. Trem
blingly she whispered to us the
cause of the omission : " You see,
sir, there are so many preachers
and eminent men in town this week
that I dare not hang out my clothes
to dry." Sadly we returned to
the office, pondering on the wisdom
of woman.
A bad little Chicago boy, who
had been inveigled into a Sunday
school the daafter specie began
to be paid out, kept pretty quiet
until he saw the collection plate
passed, on which were several dol
lars in silver, when he turned to a
companion and said, "Hey! Billy,
there's silver on that plate for
Christ's sake!" The teacher, a
nice young woman, took him across
her knee and fanned him with her
Thaideus Stevens' Opinions.
Was Thaddeus Stevens, "the
great commoner," also "the great
repudiator," because he opposed
paying " bloated speculators twice
the amount they were entitled to?
Was he in favor of " tarnishing
the national honor?" Will the Ore
gonian answer these questions?
We publish Jbclow the speech of
Mr. Stevens, made in Congress on
the 1 7 tli of July, 18G8, -which Ave
consider an excellent argument in
favor of an equitable adjustment
of the bonded debt of the United i
States. It is true he differs widely
from our able and distinguished (?)
Senator, Mr. Corbett, who, in his
recent letter to Judge Wilson, de
mands that the bondholders shall
be paid in com. This, however, is
easily accounted for. Corbett is
largely interested m the Portland
X-ational Bank and the Govern
ment bonds which it holds; while
Stevens was only a "Commoner"
and unwilling to oppress an over
taxed people in order to pay
"bloated speculators" twice as much
as we agreed to do.
Below will be found extracts
from the debate in Congress on the
funding bill of 1808. We reprint
from the Congressional Globe,
Part Y, Second Session of Eortieth
Congress, pages 4177 and 4178,
the debate being on an amend
ment to the funding bill offered by
Mr. Butler, and said amendment
being withdrawn, Mr. Thaddeus
Stevens said :
Mr. Speaker. I renew the
amendment to the amendment, for
A 1 f t
me purpose oi saving a word in
regard to what has fallen from
members here. I am in favor of
funding bill which shall reduce the
interest of our bonds. If no per
son shall choose to fund under such
a bill, no harm will be done
any person should choose to fund
under it at a lower rate of interest
than we now pay, we gain by it
Hence I am in favor of a biil o
this kind : whether this is exactly
the right kind of a bill or not
will not criticise, except that
think it is a tolerably fair one.
I think, however, that the lowest
rate of interest must be four per
cent.; 1 do not think that you can
get money cheaper than that. And
I will go father and say that I do
not think, as long as the five-twenty
gold interest-bearing bonds are
outstanding, that anybody will
ever fund a dollar under this bill.
Why should they? But when
those five-twenty bonds are paid
off, I have no doubt that large
investments will be made both at
home and abroad in a loan of this
character. I think, therefore, that
it is the duty of the Government,
with the gold which is accumulat
ing hi its Treasury every year, to
expend at least half the amount in
redeeming the five-twenty bonds
in advance of their falling due.
After they fall due then no one can
obiect to their redemption.
I understood the gentleman from
Illinois 3Ir. Ross who first spoke
upon this subject to say that he
understood that our outstanding
bonds should be paid according to
the principle of the Xew York plat
form. What is that platform ?
Mr. Ross. To pay the five-twenties
in lawful money.
Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania.
You mean by "lawful money"
Mr. Ross. Greenbacks; that is
your doctrin and mint.
Mr. Stcvens,of Pennsylvania. I
hold to the Chicago platform, and,
as 1 understand it, to the Xew
York platform, upon these bonds;
that these bonds shall be paid just
according to the original contract.
Mr. Pike. According to the
spirit and letter of the contract.
Air. rarnsworth. According to
the law.
Air. Stevens, of Pennsylvania.
What was the law? That bonds
of a certain amount should bi-ar
five per cent, interest in gold. X"ow,
up to the time that they fall due
we must pay them faithful!-. After
they fall due they are payable in
money, just as the gentleman un
derstands "money," just as I under
stand it, just as we all understand
it when we passed the law author
izing that loan ; just as it was a
dozen times explained upon the
floor by the chairman of the Com
mittee of Ways and Means Air.
Stevens when" called upon by gen
tlemen to explain meant,
and just as the whole Mouse agreed
that it meant.
Here the hammer fell.

should like to have one or two min

want to say Jhat if this loan was
to be paid according to the intima
tion of the gentleman from IHinQ;,
Mr. Ross; if lj knew that any
party in this country would go 1 or
paying in coin that which if "paya
ble in money, thus unhancing it
one-half; if 1 knew there was such
a platform and such a determina
tion this day on tli.q part of any
party, I would votojfor the oilier
side, Erank Blair and all. I would
vote for no such swindle upoiPthe
Jax-payers of this country ; I would
vote for no such speculation in favor
of the large bondholders, the mil
lionaire?, who - took ad vantage of
our folly in granting them coin
payment of interest. And I
declare well, it is hard to say
it but if even Erank Blair stood
upon the platform paying the bonds
according to the contract, and the
Republican candidates stood upon
the platform of paying bloated
speculators twice the amount which
we aguced to pay them, then I
would vote for Erank Blair, even
if a worse man than Seymour
headed the ticket. That is all I
want to say.
Mr. Ross. The Democratic doors
are still open, and we will take the
in. -Jferald.

The nominee of the Democratic
party for the responsible position
of Secretary of State was born in
the State of" Connecticut, where he
resided until of proper age to com
mence the study of profession, the

fivti years in Xcw York City, and
when completed, started for Ore

here in 1850, (we think.) He im
