-credi far the same. There is a large
number of this class of patients in the
asylum, and their friends have paid the
State regularly the amcr.nt required. We
are informed that the accounts of the
State do not show the receipt of a tingle
"d -liar from that source. The question
naturally arises, bo has been getting the
benefit of this money? We are also in
formed that tbir is no record of what
"money has been received from the
feale of school lands, and that no record
can be found of deeds of school lands
sold, hence It is impossible for the present
State official to know what lands have
been sold or what payments have
"been made. This is a daik picture, yet it
Is oris drawn from facts as they exist at
.Salem, and ihelurther the present officials
examine into the State affairs the worse
they appear. The amount which the
State should have received from persons
who pay their own expenses while in the
asylum, must be several thousand dollars

'There are many other facts coming to
light. Of which the public will be infoim
ed in due time. It was a matter of great
importance to the Radicals that they
should have held on to the State offices
in order to further rob the people and to
successfully cover up their rascality. The
people have reason to be thankful that
the affairs of State have fallen into other
aud more honest Lands.
Tfte Swamp Lands.
The Radical press of the State continue
their howl against the swamp land act.
These lands became nearly forfeited by
the State through the incompetency of the
late Radical officials, and the railroad
land sharks had hoped that they could
succeed in having them thrown open for
tuenl lo grub. But this little game
has been checked and the settlers and
persons identified ilh the welfare of our
State are now to receive these lands. This
is the reason why these Radical organs in
the employ of these corporations are so
opposed lo the bill which has deprived
their masters from getting hold of lands
Yhich celong to the State. The Democ
racy propose to protect the rights of the
people and care not whether it pleases
ihe railroad or any other corporations.
Gibbs aifd the Radical officials were and
we believe are now, interested in what is
known as the Oregon Central Military
Road Company. Large quantities of these
fswamp lands are on the line of this road,
and if they could make it appear that
they were Government lands, the Com
pany could grab them under their fran
chise. This is probably the reason why
the' Radicals neglected their duty in not
selecting these lands for the State lc"ng
fclhce. The Radical opposition to this act
is an effort on their part to cover up a
nicely concocted scheme to divide these
lands among themselves. Iking disap
pointed in this, they seek to deceive the
people with the cry that the Democrats
bte attempting to do the same thing they
have been defeated in du'u tr.
q An Outrage Otis Demand.
Mr. Dowell writes to his paper that Mr.
Williams proposed to in'roduce a bill to
re-pay "Major" Y. V. Rinehart the ex
pense incurred in defending himself
against the suit of P. II. Mulkey. Many
of our readers will remember the circum
stances which caused this suit, but for the
benefit of those who do not, we will give
the main points. This man Rinehart was
Stationed at Eugene City at the time of
the assassination of the '-immortal'" Lin
coln, in charge of a company of Volun
teers. A few dava after the assassination.
Mulkey came into town and became in
toxicated and hurrahed for "Jeff. Davis.''
This was sufficient ground for the loyal
"Major" lo send a squad of soldiers and
have him arrested, lie was kept in con
fineiiieut at Eugene City for about two
months, and was finally taken to Van

The New York Tribune concedes that the
Democracy will have 147 electoral votes
in 1872, and claims 179 for the Radicals.
This would give them a majority of 32.
That paper claims every doubtful State as
Radical and while it gives the Democracy
none but vzhat will be' carried by them,
we propose to take from the Radical side
such States a3 in bur opinion will go Dem
ocratic; and the Tribune having conceded
147 which are beyond doubt, we shall see
how the figures stand. The following are
among the State's claimed for the Radicals:
New Jersey, 8 ; Pennsylvania. 25 ; Texas,
7 ; Ohio, 20; Illinois, 19 ; Arkansas. 5
total. 81. Deduct these from the Radical
side, and it will give them 83 and the
Democracy 147. The above States are
doubtful, and are just as liable to go for
the Democratic nominee as for the Radi
cal. Willi a Western man and a free trade
platform, the Democracy will carry Ohio
and Illinois, while they may also carry
Texas and Arkansas, the military rule by
which the two latter haVing been forced
in the Radical line being n6 longer able
to force the people to vote against their
will. Pennsylvania gave a Democratic
majority at her last election of about
6.000 on the popular vote, and New Jersey
has Uniformly been. Democratic, and was
carried last tall by the Radicals through
fraud and by the negro vote, ller' white
citizens will be disgusted enough before
the Presidential vied ion tr? bring her back
t-.nd'er Democratic rule. Brct the Democ
racy need not carry all the above States.
While they have an equal show with the
Radicals in all of these mentioned- either
the electoral vote of Pennsylvania, Ohio
ht Illinois will be sufficient to give the
Democracy a majority. We regard the
figures given by the Tribune as an ac
knuwlegment that its party will be defeat
ed ia 1S72. The Democracy certainly
have reason to be gratified at the future
Who (jht the Money ?
It will be remembered that at the com
mencement of the war, the Federal Gov
ernment levied a certain amount of direct
tax on the various States. The following
appears in the Congressional reports of
February 1st in relation to Oregon :
The Finance Committee hud up the ques
tion, to day. of the direct tax imposed by
the Government on States in the early
part of the war. The tax was responded
to on. the part et all the loyal States, ex
cept New York and Oregon , and its oper
ation was suspended in the Southern
States by reason of the difficulties there.
These Southern States have not yet paid
their tax. nor have New York and Ore
gon, and those States which did pay are
now seeking to be reimbursed. After a
lengthy discussion, the matter was post
poned until next week.
There is something very" mysterious in
this announcement. This tax was levied
at the special session of Congress in July,
1SG2. and Oregon's proportion was about
S:3.003. There ws-.s more than this sum
in the State Treasury when Gov. Gibbs
was inaugurated in September, and so ex
tremely loyal was the Legislature that one
of its first acts was the ordering of the
payment of the Federal tax, in gold coin.
The tax was levied on a greenback "basis,
and the State could hare paid her tax
with about jji'ty or sixty cents on the dol
lar ; but the Legislature was too patriotic
to speculate on the misfortunes of their
'bleeding country," so they ordered it
paid in coin, and the accounts against the
State represent that-payment was made.
We have frequently charged the Gibbs
administration with paying the Govern
ment in cerrenrv. and stealing the diifer-
ence between coin
d greenbacks ; but
from the above it appeals that the State
officials did not even divide with their
"bleeding Government,-' but apparently
went the whole hog and stole it all. This
matter should be looked into, -and the
people should at least be informed who
was the individual that stole the S33.00U.
Oregon has paid it, and some Radical has
stolen it, and the people should know who
the successful thief is. A man to s'ie.il
that amount of money eight years agd and
not let it be found out until now. must be
an expert, and deserves promotion at the
hands of the Federal Government, as no
State will offer sufficient opportunity to
properly develope his or their abilities in
the stealing line.
An exchange says that a New York
lawyer proposes that all the lawyers of
the country contribute $5 a head for the
relief of the daughters of Judge Taney,
who are poor aud obliged to work for a
living. This is a good suggestion, and we
hope that it will be carried out. Had
this "pure and honest Judge been a cor
rupt partisan, and accumulated a fortune
for his family, the Radicals would long
sip.ee have given therri a pension. LuJ
the pure and honest need expect nothing
for themselves or their posterity from the
fanatical thieves who now control the na
tion. The fame of Judge Taney will re
main bright in th minds of every lover
of uprightness, and his posterity will be
respected when tjose who are now living
in. luxury on the bounty of a Government
whose only service they can boast i their
dishonesty and treason to the country, is
forgotten. It is more noble to be the des
cendent. of Judge. Taney in poverty than
of Lincoln or Stanton wi;h all the wealth
of the nation to b-tck them.
Gov. Woo 3 as School SiTKnixTFrxbxT.
The litws of the State provide that the
County School Superintendents shall-i--sne
o persons desiring to teach in any
county certificates as to their qualifica
tion, the applicant having power to ap
peal to the Governor if the County Su
perintendent refuses or neglects to do jus
tice. There is a fine also for a person to
teach without the certificate. Governor
found a way to avoid the necessity of an
appeal, and he issued the certificates him
self on the applicant paying S2 50. The
Governor in the first place had no lawful
right to issue the certificates, and in the
next place, he is prohibited by law from
receiving any fees. This is one of the
little speculations of the' ex Governor.

we repeat, and we defy contradiction of
the statement we make.
The above extracts are taken from that
truthful "Independent " paper published
at Portland by courtesy of Den. llolladay,
known as the personal organ of that gen
tleman, or the Bulltlia. While the Gist
extract is entirely destitute-of truth, we
fail to see where the crime is in men corn
ing out from a party in power arid uniting
themselves with one that lias not the cor
rupting inducements of personal gain to
offer. Their motives for the change cer
tainly have the appearance of honesty of
purpose. On the other hand, we fihd men
in the "foremost ranks'" of the Radical
party who remained with the Democracy
while there was a hope for them to gain
power or place, and" wrfen it became ap
parent that the Democracy could or would
not give them positions, joined their for
tunes with the party in power. Grant
-and Butler once were Democrats; they
joined the Radicals as soon as an oppor
tunity Was offered to benefit their person
al interests. The Radical party has be
come notorious for its readiness to reward
renegade Democrats with office, and hence
nil who were corrupt "enough to sell their
birthright, have been and are to-day iti
the " foremost ranks" of the Radical par
ty. This is ti ne in relation to the national
administration. Look where von will and
you will find a renegade Democrat hold
ing the most lucrative position within the
gilt of the Radical party. We may be
allowed to refer lo Oregon. Of the five
U. S. Senators elected by the Radical
party, three were Democrats ; there has
been but one Supreme Judge elected by
the Radicals who is not a renegade Demo
crat, and the principal offices have been
and are now filled by men who were once
Democrats, and even Jas. O'Meara. who
now holds a "foremost rank" in the Radi
cal party, once claimed to be a Democrat.
Men who join a minority party will get
credit, for being honest in their change,
while there is always ground to suspicion
ihe motives of those who change to the
party iu power, and especially when they
receive an office or a good salary for so
doing. It is a notorious fact that conupt
men will always unite with the party m
power. While we shall cheerfully receive"
all honestly converted men from the ditty
mire of Radicalism, the Democracy does
not propose to reward them for their de
sertion of a party which has become so
low by means ot being controlled by the
Democrats who were purchased to itesert
their party when it was in the minority.
The second extract is so ridiculously
absurd that we only made it to shaw how
far some persons can go from the truth.
There is not a man iu Si ate office who tid
ed with the Radical party. Mr. Chad wick
went to what was termed a "Union'' con
vention in 1So2, but finding there that it
was a misnomer, he returned home and
refused any further affiliation with the
Radical party. He has since that time
shown the sincerity of his etnetions to the
principles of the Democratic patty by de
voting both his time and means to iis suc
cess, and this when the JJalklla editor re
garded him as a "sound and reliable Dem
ocrat." Eight years probation far a slight
error, committed at a time when the pub
lic mind wits all excitement, is sufficient
to admit him and all others into full fel
lowship. Not one of the others ever falter
ed in their devotion to the piirty. We
presume that the sudden change bv
said editor has made him believe that till
men change as ready and cheap as he has.
In conclusion we would say that, if the
party who elected the State officers is sat
isfied with their Democracy, and we can
assure said editor that it is. he has no
right to Had anv fault, as he is luhoriii"
lii beual! ot the Uaitical party, r.tid if th
Democitu-y will elect men who are not
Democrats, so much the better for them.
Radical Vexueaxoe. The cause of the
charges preferred against the people of
the Southern Slates, ni iv be judged from
the following extracts. There is no ques
tion but what all these Radical charges
are founded on revenge. TL'e extract is
taken from the Washington Puiriol.
The son of Govenor lloldcn. who was
defeated for Congress, is the piinciple in
stigator of the Morton inquisition. lie has
to revenge his own defeat as well as that
of his fattier, and if possible, lo prevent
the consummation of the hitter's impeach
ment, for the crimes which he has commit
ted against the people of North Carolina.
He is not only prosecutor, but witness.
And to sustain this audacious conspiracy
to overthrow a peaceful government, they
have na rurally invoked the aid ot KitU.
who headed the outlaws Unit committed
the well-known outrages in the counties
of Caswell and Almance last suimrier
outrages which, in enormity, exceed any
thing in our whole history. He is. of
course, a proper witness for Ilolden and
Morton. Mr. Carpet-Bagger Abbott, from
New Hampshire, whom the people of
North Carolina rejected as Senator, is also
one of the managers of this plot, hoping to
get elected by the Senate for his part in it.
R. R. Ectler. The Radical papers are
jubilant over the equittal of this notorious
Radical Congressman pension forger, and
try to create the impression that he was
innocent of the charges preferred against
him and upon which he wasindicted. It
will be remembered that this man Butler
was indicted by the grand jury upon Un
charge of forgery by the evidence of the
Commissioner of Pensions'and when the
CJse was called, this individual failed to
bring into Court the evidence iu his pos
session, hence the case went by default.
It does not signify (hat Cutler was not
guilty, btlt simply shows what a furce it
is to attempt to convict due Radical with
the evidence of another. When the time
comes they will always be found to swear
each other out of the penitentiary.

Interesting Letter from Kalama.
FROM -OCR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.
Ori Saturday morning, Feb. 18th. quite
an enthusiastic rarty, numbering perhaps
seventy, took .passage' on the splendid
steamer "Dixie Thompson, for a trip to
Kalmiia, and to witness the ceremony of
laying ihe Corner Stone of St. Andrews'
Episcopal Chapel, at that place. Ihe trip
down the river was unevenuui as iiugm
have been expected ttpon such a day the
rain coming down in torrents, without the
least hope of cessation, and nought in na
ture to greet the eye. cave drenched and
dronninir trees standing out g.oomuy
ow and then a
arrair.st a sullen sky. or now
solitary wreath of smoke ascending lazily
from the chimney of some farmer's home.
Still the enthusiasm of the party did not
in the least diminish, and when "Kalama "
was announct'd, an eager crowd rushed to
the doors and windows to catch a glimpse
of the new city. Kalama, (an Indian word
meaning "Beautiful Maiden,") is situated
upon the Washington Territory side of
the Colnrnl'ia viver, about "eleven miles
below St. llelems. Its appearance is
rough and primitive in every particular.
though the site is picturesque and com
manding. Buildings ate going up in
every direction, and are in all stages of
advancement. Numerous tents dot the
green, in which busy life is represented in
various forms. Upon one, in large black
letters, we read "Star Restaraunt," upon
another "The Riverside," and hi a third
sat a i hoemaker. busy with awl and wax
end. looking as indifferent to care as th'-J
leather he held in his hands. Through
the courtesy of Gen. Tilton. we were en
abled to see the future city laid out on
paper. The plot is arranged with great
taste and generosity, the streets being St)
feet wide, and the alleys 20 feet, while
provision is made for a Public Park, to
contain seventy acres. The names of the
.streets are alphabetically arranged, each
bearing the name of some Vf;:'o or shrub
as Alder, Birch, Cedar, etc.
At 1 o'clock i. m. we ve'nded our way
to the. spot where the corner stone was to
be laid. Bishop Morris, with the uaselSsli
zeal that characterizes all his labors,, had
preceded the party, leaving Portland by
the six o'clock boat, in order to make
final preparations for the ceremony. We
were not a little surprised to Bed the
amount of labor that had been bestowed
upon the lot during the week previous.
A large basaltic- rock t'bat stood in the
way, had been removed by blasting, ling-round
graded, and rough places literally
mad'.' smooth, in order that the approach
ing ceremony night be "done decently
and in order." A raridome stone had
been procured in Portland, and transfer
red to its final resting place. A tin box.
containing documents of interest and
value to those who may unfold their hid
ing place iu yeaiS to eonie. was hermeti
cally sealed and placed in a -niche of the
stone prepared for it. - The exercises were
opened by diluting t lie 122nd psalm ; a
brier address bv the Bishop, and the of
fering of appropriate prayers. A list of
the articles contained in the box Was then
read by the ReV. Mr. S:oy, after which,
the Bishop, widi a mason V hammer, struck
upon the stone thrte times, while he re
peated the following words: "In the
name of the Father and qf the Son ami of
the Jioiy ('U-..-U. Anvil. 1 lay the en: tier
stone of tin edifice to be here erected, by
the name of St. Andrews' Chapel, and to
be devoted to the srviee of Almighty
God.' agreeably to the principles ot the
Protes'ant. Episcopal Church iu the United

dation can no man lay than that which is
laid even Jesus Christ ; who is God over
till, blessed for evermore, and in whom
we have redemption through His bb.od.
even the forgiveness of t-las. Amen."
Then followed the hymn. -Jerusalem the
Golden." its inspiring strains-floating away
triumphantly abuv-ihe fury of the storm.
The Bishop il.en followed Ci:!S a brief but
appropriate ad !ress. marked by the same
spirit of earnestness and fervor that ani
mates ail his efforts in the holy Cause he
seeks to promote. The clergy of whom
were present, the Rev. Messrs. Stoy. Ros
