We lake the following from an exchange,
which tells plain truths. There can be
no question but what a paper sustained
liberally by the community for whose in
terest and benefit it labors, is a greater
source of remunerative wealth than any
other institution which can be fostered in
a town. It says :
What tells us so readily 1 lie standard
of a town or a city as the appearance of
its paper? Audits youth or its age can
as well be determined by the observing
as by a personal notice. The enierpris-'
of its citizens is depicted by its advertise
ments, their liberality, by the looks of the
paper Some papers show a good, healthy,
solid foundation, plethoric, purses, and a
well-to-do appearance generally ; others
show a striving to contend with the grasp
ing thousands around them, trying hard to
wrench an existence from their close tis'ed
communities. An occasional meteoric
display in its columns of telegraph or
local, or of editorials, shows what it can
.lo it it had thf means ; but it cannot con
tinue in the expensive work until support
comes, which ought to be readily granted.
A newspaper is like a church - if wants
fostering in the commencement, and for a
few years ; then, as a general thing, it can
walk alone, ami reilect credit upon its lo
cality. 'Take your paper home it. gives

those who stand up for you should cer

"grudgingly, but in a liberal spirit ; as a

enough. We will

We know that enemies of the Democratic
party will charge us with doing this to
help along the Democratic party and
increase the pay of Democratic office
holders. But this cannot be done. The
compensation of no office can legallv be

It will take ionr years to amend the State
Constitution so as to increase the pay of
State officers, and by that time another
election will take place. The idea that

to strike the most careless otserrer as
unjust and ridiculous.
California pays her Governor $7,000
per yetr. vhich is too ranch ; Oregon pays
hers too little. There is no sense in this
'penury wise and pound foolish7' econo

behind our rbter States forever let us now
submit the question to the people: Shall
our State officers receive adequate com
pensation lor their services aud heavy

We take the following article on
popular education from the Jack
sonville JXeics. The suggestions in
it are good and we believe that the
office of State School Superintend
ent is a much needed necessity and
the benefits that would be received
by the schools would compensate
for the small expense :
It has become a recognized axiom
in all fret; governments that as you
increase the facilities for education,
you proportionately decrease the
desire to commit crime. Experience
has shown that jails cost more
money, both to build and maintain,
than school houses, in addition to
which there is the danger to prop
erty and life to be considered.
Therefore, all men who desire to see
our State become prosperous, must
desire to see her sons and (laughters
receive a good and liberal educa
tion, to enable them tograpple with
the work-day world.
ut while Ave arc in favor of a
comprehensive and liberal public
educational system, we desire to see
one that is commensurate with the
growth and progress of the State.
There are some among us who favor
the establishment of a State Nor
mal School b' the incoming legis
lature. In our opinion, that move
ment is premature. What we need
is this : First, the establishment of
a'Siate Educational Department,
with a Superintendent of Public
Instruction at the head of it, who
will attend to it and nothing else.
It is unfair to impose this task upon
the Governor any longer. Second,
t he establishment of a State Eoard
of education, to consist of the
Governor, Secretarv of State, Su
perintendents of Common Schools
in and for the counties of Marion
and .Multnomah and the State Su
perintendent, the latter to act as
Secretary of the Board. Third,
the establishment of quarterly
Boards of Examination in each
county, to consist of the County
Superintendent and two teachers,
who shall issue certificates based
upon a uniform course of examina
tion prescribed by the State Board
of Education. Fourth, a State tax
and a county tax upon property for
the support of schools, like every
other State has. Fifth, a uniform
system of school books in all the
counties of this State. The pres
ent system of allowing district
school officers to select just such
books as the like, is so manifestly
unjust that any statute which per
mits it, is a disgrace to our boasted
civilization. Every time a man
moves from one county to another,
his children have to be supplied
with new school books, and this be
comes a grievous burden upon poor
men, and one that is intolerable to
We learn that Hon. J. T). Fay
will introduce a bill having the
above enumerated features at the
coming session of the Legislature.
It lias been carefully prepared un
der his supervision by a practical
teacher, who has hail several years
of experience in the schools of Cai-,
ifornia, and it embodies many of
the features of the California law,
which, though drawn by a liepub
lican and passed by a Republican
Legislature, has be n deemed so'
equitable by the Democracy that
they have ever since refused to altet
or amend it m any shape. Air. :

enough to think of that. The tax
necessary to support such an insti
tution would be better expended,
for the present, upon the common
schools of the State. When Ore

dollars, then" it will lie time enough j
to talk about a St.nte Normal school I
We hope to see every Democra

favor of Mr. Fay's bill, to show the
enemies of our party that Demo- i
erats are willing to further the I
cause of popular education in every ;
way consistent with the resources1
of theiitate. And to the Repub
lican members we would say that
there is no -party question involved

The Latsst Infamy.
After years of shameful delay in
granting pensions to the soldiers
of the war of 1812, Congress has
doled out tardy justice, not how
ever without linking with their ac
tion a partisan i nfamy, character
istic of their of their legislation.
The bill, as passed, provides a pen
sion of eight dollars a month to all
surviving veterans, who served
three consecutive months and
were honorably discharged and
who are now dependent on their
own labor or that of others for
To this, however, were added
two amendments, one extending
the relief of the bill to surviving
widows, who were married prior to
the treaty of peaet and who are
now in like dependent cirncmstan
ces, the other one excepting such
veterans as at any time during the
war sympathized with the rebel
lion. In all the long category of out
rages for which the present Con
gress is responsible, there is not
one exhibiting such a spirit of ma
lignant hatred as this one. What
infamy could be more atrocious
than this revengeful thrust. at the
poor old soldiers of the republic,
tottering on the verge of the
grave? For years entirely ren'ler-
ed harmless by the infirmities of
age, unable at farthest to more
than cherish a natural sympathy
for the land and people to whom
they are linked by "every human
tie, why deny them requital due to
services done nearly half a century
anterior to the war? Does the
mere feeling of sympathy with
their children, and probably chil
dren's children, who went into the
rebellion, render profitless to the
country and unworthy of remem
brance their heroic defense of the
nation's honor before the present
generation was born?
Surely language cannot express
the utter loathing a high minded,
liberty-loving, magnanimous peo
ple should feel for a Congress guil
ty ol such base ingratitude and so
prostituted by partisan hatred.

Under this head the Elizabeth

native intellect, as the most effect
ive one delivered in Mississippi
against the new State Constitution
disfranchising twenty thousand
white citizens, and was voted
down by the colored vote. Boyd,
the speaker, canvassed the State
where the negro vote was in a
great majority, with complete
success. The following is the
substance of the most interesting
part of his speech.
My colored friends, I appear
here to-day in your interest alone
The white man is able to take care
oi himself; and as you can all see,
I have not- one drop of white
blood in my veins. Laughter.
I am a regular old-fasld ned, plain,
coin-field nigger, and havff not the
capacity to instruct white people
as to their duties, even if I had
the will. I was a slave from my
birth. I always endeavored to
serve my master faithfully, accord
ing to that letter in the Bible
which reads: "Servants, be obedi
ent unto your masters for this is
right." And I can lay my hand
upon my heart to-day ami say,
before God, that I entertain no ill
will toward any white man on
earth, and least of
ill toward my
old master and his sons, whom I t
loved as my own brothers, aud i
with whom I plaved in ,nv j
bov-hood. In all our neighbor-1

ter); aud, thank God, I will do" so

as they stand by me, whether the j
oppression comes from the Yankees,
or from wherever else it mav.

choice between white men, I shall

man, I tell you I didn't cry much
at the prospect. Well, when the
;irst company left my country fo
"Old Yirginiiy," to fight tin
Yankees, I enlisted with the ba'
mce of them, and went along as
first cook and head waiter for one
of my young masters. I had a
prettv good time, too, for wliil
the white folks were out fighting
and marching, and suiieiing, and
dying, I was lying back with the
I iiK-at and bread wagons, Laugl
ter.J 1 leit, for once m my life, it
was a pretty good thing to be a
nigger after all lor ,h White men
would not let me fight along side
of them, and after I heard the first
shell go off, God knows I wasn't
very anxious to do it either.
Renewed laughter. I knew if I
iiad been along on the Yankee side
I wouldn't have had such an easy
time, for as selfish as the Yankee is
he never objected to getting some
body to do his fighting for him
,-henever he could. Not lie.
Loud laughter. Some folks say
he was willing enough to let the
South do it all during the Mexican
I used to lie right smartly amus
ed hearing the white folks talk.
Aly young master came in one
iiight alter a battle, and says he,
''Henry, we've just had a big, six
nours, fight. We whipped the
1 d Yankees like smoke, and
drove 'em thirty-six miles." Thinks
i to myse'f, Humph! pretty good
driving all in six hours, too!"
But a heap of people think the
nigger is a fool.
Well, I sorter thought, maybe
the Yankees were really lightingto
free the niggers But they didn't
keep the wool over my eyes long.
I watched 'em mighty close. One
day the news came into camp that
3Ir. Lincoln had issued his procla
mation, saving that if 3Ir. Davis
iv lonvn ins amis
back into the Union, and go to
paying tariff again, the Southern
people might have their niggers!
Thinks I, humph ! Mighty poor
chance to get any freedom from
you, Mr. Lincoln. Laughter. I
tell you what. I felt, mighty bad
for a long time. I had the blues
so bad I was almost black. I
think in two weeks I must have

Traid Mr. Davis was going to do
it 1 couldn't sleep. But by and
by the good word came that ?dr.
Davis said that he'.k'be d -d if
he'd do any such a thing. I an't
fighting for the niggers. Let the
niggers go. I'm after mj own
freedom first, before anything else
in the. world." I tell you my
heart jumped light up into my
mouth. Thinks I, bully for Jeff.
Davis! He's my man! Ah, my
friends, if the Yankees had been
in Mr. Davis' place you'd a been
in the cotton p'ltch to-day, with
the whip after you, instead of sit
ting up here m
this court-honse ;
hearing me speak. Laughter, j
But don't you see the difference
between the Southern man and the
Northern man? The Northern
man never missed the chance of
f -r -i "I
taking care of the dimes.
And now the
com'e here aud tell us they are
our friends, and the Southern peo

set us free. Oh, yes, they've done
it all, no doubt. They si t us free
about like they set the mules free;

stand by the Southern man, and
it's my wirh, too. Whatever law

They are not to receive the full
