The Radical press throughout the State
nftA the " ludependenf organ at Portland
havmuch to say because the Legislature
did not make a X&w apportionment at its
late session. At the time the Legislature
CWas in session, the census was not com
pleted, and in several counties it was yet
being taken. The Legislature had no
official information as. to the population
of the various districts, and hence could
riot make the apportionment as required
by the Constitution. The Constitution
requires the apportionment to be made at
the next session after the completion of
the consul, and when the Legislature can
revive official information as to th-e" jvopu-l
latioa, and not while the census was be
ir?" taken. The Legislature, of course,
could make no valid or satisfactory ap
portionment without the official census,
and consequently refused to entertain a
proposition to make a change-, which' was
only offered by the liauical side of the
House for political sprfal, knowing at
the time that it would not be made. The
fus these fellows are malting over this
matter shows how hard up they are for
material to find fault with. The Legisla
ture did its duty in refusing to make the
new apportionment, which will belong to
the next Legislature, and which could not
have been done at the last session.
Bsn llayden's Speech-
We notice in thejtadical papers that
Hon. Ben. Il 'yden. of I'olk, was present
at the opening of the railroad to Albany,
and on thai occasion he made a speech.
The speech in the nrum we Co Hot object
to. but he- took- occasion- to refer tovthe
O veto of Governor Grove?; and ruackrlT
oft-repeated charge that the refusal of the
G jvemor to sign the bill was a. defeat of
the railroad on the west side of the river.
Mr. Ilayden, having voted for that infa
mous outrage, appears to bo determined
to sink with that measure into oblivion.
The Democracy, to a man, outside of those
who voted for this bill, condemn the Leg
islature for the passage of tLe act, and up-
hold the Governor in bis veto. There is
dM a man in the State but what desires to
seu Me west ide road constructed, and
would do all that ought to be expected to
secure such an end. But any sensible
man must know that (he girMig to Ben.
Jlolladay of $330,000 would not have se
cured that end. and if 3Ir. Ilaydeu thinks
that he can take issue with the Democracy
on this question successfully, he has a-perfect
right to do so. The measure ' was
anti-Democratic and should never have
been passed, and while we are not in
clined to continue a war upon those who
voted for it, we feel it our duty to con
demn any member of the party who will
persist in advocating the justice of this
swindle. If Ben. Ilayden thinks that he
ean control the Democracy on this ques
tman and make them come to him, we will
inform him that he is much mistaken, and
the sooner he desists in Lis opposition, to
the united Democracy on this 0.11 est ion
Vtv Wtter U will be-for him, or let him go
over and openly wear the collar which
Ben. Ilollad.iy has placed upon' him.
The Radical organs and the "independ
ent" sheet at Portland have much to say
in regard to the apportionment made for
Columbia county, and say that it was a
Democratic measure to secure an addi
tional Representative-. Now the fact of
the matter is, the bill was introduced by
Judge Olney, a Republican, who has more
fense than any of the 11 a Jical editors, and
passed at his earnest solicitation. The ap
portionment was a Radrcal move, as the
returns of the last election indicated that
unless Columbia county u-as cut oT from
Clatsop, the Representative from that
heretofore Radical district will be a Dem
ocrat. This is what the bill was intro
duced and passed for, and instead of be
ing a Democratic 'measure it was a Radi
cal move to save that party a member of
the next House.
SETTi.ni. We notice from our Portland
papers that Ben. Ilolladay has settled the
trouble-. heretofore existing between the
new and old companies on the west side,
and that Mr. Ilolladay has come into pos
session of the property and effects of the
old corporation, he paying the liabilities
of the same. We suppose that work will
be immediately commenced on the road,
and that the war of west and east side is
now ended. We sincerely hope that this
may be true, and that the locomotive may
coon be runuing over the rich counties of
Washington, Yamhill, Polk and Benton,
connecting at the head of the valley with
J.he east side.
Insult We see irom a correspondence
in the Herald, that Ben. Ilolladay grossly
incited Mr. Helm, who had been selected
on the occasion of the railroad excursion
to Albany to make the presentation
- speech. We have not space to comment
on this matter at present, but will say
that the insult was not alone to Mr. Helm,
) but the people of Albany also, for which
Mr. Uolladay will be held in contempt by
all resectable people.
To Oi'KX.-rrThe new hotel at Salem is to
be opened on the 2fith inst. This is prob
ably the finest hotel In Oregon.
By What Authority ?
It appears from the Oregonian and Bul
letin that some resolutions were adopted
(so these papers say) on the excursion to
Albany, which are reported to have been
signed by several gentlemen who were in
vited guests on the occasion. Among
these names, as reported by the Bulletin,
are Messrs. J. II. Ralston, of this city, and
A. B. Ilallock. of Portland. Tlw last
named gentleman Las tk-nietf puolicly
that he ever signed the resolutions, and
the former has authorized us to say that
he not only never signed the resolutions,
but had no knowledge that any meeting
was held or resolutions adopted. As to
the propriety of the resolutions we have
nothing to say, but we would like to know
by whose authority men's frames are ap
pended to resolutions which they never
saw? It appears to be a little dodge on
the part of the would-be railroad king
and his tools to attach gentlemen's names
to resolutions in order that they may have
a weight wkh respectable people. ut
Siipposc these resolutions had been signed
by all the guests, would that give them
any weight under the circumstances ? We
cannot find more appropriate language
than was expressed in a communication
on the occasion of the excursion held last
Jauuary to receive the first 20 miles of
the same road, which "we find in the Ore
gon Herald of the 4th of that month, writ
ten by the present editor of the Bulletin.
and signed " Fair Flay
It will not be d'spnteiT. I presume. Mr.
Editor, that the guests were all invited by
Ben. Ilolladay. The road is actually his.
the rolling stock is his, the cars in which
the meeting was held are his. and it was
Ben. Ilolladay who furnished the collation
and the wines' served on the excursion.
Permit me now to ask, what would be
thought of the conduct of any person who
had invited guests to a banquet at his own
house, who should invite to that banquet
a few who were presumed to be promi
nent in a claim of magnitude in direct
conflict with a claim set up by himself,
and to ollset this few, to invite two ov
three times as many of those whose inter
ests were identical with his own in the
said claim ; then, at the party thus consti
tuted, to have a meeting preopiUiiod after
the feast, to head which the presumed
leading men of the few in opposition
should be called a simulated courtesy,
but Italy to deprive- them of voice or
action in the arranged programme to
follow, except it were to-appear as spon
sors to the same ; and then, when the trap
was Lfjua?e'y set anil the game all ready,
to have a resolution presented by his at
torney, and seconded by his chief butler,
to the oiled that Ins claim was just and
lawful, and that of his confeslaids was
neither? This accomplished, while the
entrapped presiding officer and his few
friends all invited gneis were amaz-ed
and dumb-founded by the "bold raid deci
sive7' manners of the host, then imagine,
for the capsheaf, a motion by the afore
said chief butler, solus, to insist that every
body present should sign the resolutions I
.Mark von. Mr. Editor, this kind of motion
is somew hat -stronger than a call for the

Sumner cn Grant-
Senator Charles Sumner has become
distrusted with Grant and his administra-
tration. He was recently interviewed by
a reporter at the West, and the Xew York
Herald thus sums up Sumner's opinion of
The Senator ''has no
doubt that General Grant is an honest
man and administers the government the
best that he knows how." "lie has had
the best chance conceivable to do great
things,'-' " but he dou't know everything,
and. unfortunately, he don't know that he
don't know it. Now, Z;.ch Taylor," con
tinued the learned Senator, " was not a
brilliant man or a statesman, but he knew
it and surrounded himself by men who
made up his- deficiencies." Here. then,
the- old proverb will apply. The fool
fbinketh himself a wise man. but the wise
knoweth himself to be a fool." This, as
ti'-ar as we can make it out. is Sumner's
parallel between Grant and Taylor.
To sum up these views of
the Senator in plain levins, he thinks that
General Grant is an honest man. but a
fool ; that he is doaig the Lest he can, but
is doing everything wrong ; that lie was
up to his ears in the St. Domingo specula
tion ; that Motley was recalled because his
friend Sumner opposed and defeated the
treaty in the Senate.
Removed. Dispatches of the 12th inst.,
announce that the Pre.-ident has sent to
the Senate the names of John (probably
Joel) Palmer for the position of Indian
Agent at Grand Rondo John B. Dickscu
for Umatilla, and Leroy S. Dyer for the
Siletx. This chops off the heads of Ben.
Simpson and Capt. Lafollette, who Mc
Pherson said had no sense, and through
whose mismanagement Polk was lost to
the Radicals last June. Probably Wil
liams is paying these fellows off according
to thlr worth.
No Use. The Bulletin attempts to be
smear Hon. Jas. F. Amis, of Lane, with
its fl itlery. It is no use for the editor of
that sheet to attempt anything of that
kind. Mr. Amis knows the man fiom
whom it comes, and has long sg0 formed
Lis opinion of the little individual. That
kind of stuff will not catch any man of
sense, and Mr. Amis has a good share of
e. Try son:' other uo-lge.
Needed. We learn from the postmaster
at Oswego, Mr. Gans, that there is no mail
service to that place, and that the citizens
are compelled to get their mail matter
from Portland by private conveyance.
This condition has existed for over a year,
and the people of that place have praved
and solicited the Postal Agent to do some-
unng lor tuern, but wKbout avail. There
s Quite a town at Oswego, and consider
able of. a population around the place ;
why there is not some provision made for
a service v.e cannot imagine. There is a
mail carried by what is known as Taylor's
Ferry route, to which this office could be
attached without much, if any, extra ex
pense to the department, .and the boats
pass that, place daily, which would deliver
the mail for a small consideration. There
ought lo be something done for the benefit
of the people of that section, and we hope
the Postal Agent will take notice of their
Goon. The W. W. iXalesmctrt says fnat
some cranky Democrats are again bring
ing forward Salmon P. Chase as a possible
Democratic nominee for the" Presidency.
This is all waste of time. Chase was chief
in the crusade that brought about the war
and all the calamities that subsequently
afiticted the country, and should he live a
thousand years he would never be at'le to
atone for his crimes. Chase far the Presi
dency ! Get out! The very mention of
his name leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

that the whole demonstration was a sort
of a cross between a Radical crusade in
search of votes and a personal demonstra
tion lo beslobber Ben. Ilolladay and
abuse Democrats who verc opposed to
his schemes for self-aggrandizement.

S-UAtL-PoS. Mr. J. C. Davenport, in a
letter to the Statesman, informs that paper
of the following facts relating to small-pox
at Silverton :
There have been five cases in this town,
all in the family of my brother. J. W. Dav
enport ; most of these cases were of the
distinct form, and all are doing well.
InD.Bollin's fsimily. five miles north
of this place, there have been eleven
cases, and five deaths have occurred, sev
eral of these were of the confluent form.
There have also been six cases iu the
family of my brother, T. W. Davenport,
who lives five miles south of this place.
Several of these cases were very severe
and one proved fatal ; this was his wife,
whose dnth is mourned by an extensive
circle of friends. In her cas- there was
a complication which," undoubtedly, pro
duced the sad' 1 esiti't.
These are all the cast's that have oc
curred, and we think the disease will
spread no further, as people are convinced
that the disease is small-pox. Had this
been understood at first, we should not
now have to mourn the loss cf our many

to enable boats to freely navigate that
