The CTncugo Democrat says that the Re

venture the prediction, that d w John

defeat which overtook the Democratic

dangerous, and so the President has n m
in ited Fortiov to be Collector of the Fori

duce that immaculate to hold his peace

Whit the Democracy Propose to do.
Our Radical friends are much alarmed
at what the Democracy propose doing
should they get into power. They set up
all kinds of imaginary theories and pro
claim them as the true intent of the
party. For their information, we publish
the following purposes of the Democracy,
taken from one of our e changes, and
which we most heartily endorse.
Democrats propose to undo Radical
legislation in regard to revenue. They
propose to do away with the robbery
called protection. In doing this, how
ever, they cannot restore to the people
the hundreds of millions of dollars taken
from them and transferred to the pockets
of the manfacieriug monopolists by
means thereof. The Democrats propose
putting a stop to Ihe reckiss squander
ing of the public lands to partisan rings ;
but it does not follow that, they can
restore lo ibe public domain thai
which has already been given away.
We would restore ihe Union as it was.
with the addition only of the Thirteenth
Amen .Intent stop all naiiou.il in teference
with the affairs of Ihe States, and leave
the people thereof perfectly free, as they
were in lonner d.ys. lo regulate their do
mestic institution in their way, own sub
ject only to the Constitution of the United
States. If i he pe jple are not lit for this.
Ihey are not fit, for freedom. This doc
trine we are ready to proclaim front the
ToNN'AOK ON" TIIK RlVKK. At tllO office
of ihe P. T. Co. we have seen an interest
ing comparative table, showing that the
river freights of the present season are nop
behind formi r years, not wit hs'anding llie
fact that a huge amount of Oregon pro
due's have lately been transported on the
railroad. During the eight months ceding
April 1st, lSilSI, the dowj Ireighls wore
2 1.207 t ns ; f.r same to 1S70. they were
'-l!S.."7 1 tons : for same to ls71 21 722 tons.
The up freights lor the present year are
not quite so large but the difference is
more than made up by ihe inert use of
transportation down si ream. There is a
percepiible increase. Mr. Patton informs
us. in transportation of wares of home
manufacture, which is a favorable sign
tor the country. Judging that the rail
road has aiso carried thousands ol tons of
freights down, these figures show lhal
Oregon has increased her surplus products
in ls71 over lb70 at least one-thhd.
Salt. Salt is one of the great staples.
It, is of uniold value to any nation. It is o!
especial value lo the people of the United
States. We. in this countrv. can. says ihe
Crisis, were it not for taxation, sell salt as
cheap as any nation on eanh. We can
produce it as cheaply as any spot on the
globe, yet. bi cause of this curse of taxa
tion, a gold dollar will buy twice as much
salt in Fngiand or Spain as here, where
naturally it. cost less! So much for the
beauties of a government which deprives
a nation of ihe fruits o! its own resources,
through killing taxation.
The Sacra men lo Union, a strong sup
porter of Gi ant, says :
Whatever ma be the tone of the Sen
ate, this Republic is not yet so blunted in
i;s moral senses as to view with uncon
cern its greaiest and purest men dragged
down and torn by pigmies, place-hunters
and political adver Mirers. The removal
of Sumner from he Committee on Foreign
Relations and of Trumbuil from the Ju
diciary Committee, is an insult to the
Davaoks. From ihe JLrald we learn
that -Six-Toed Pete," well known in cer
tain circles in this place, proposes to sue
the city of Portland for designating his
-profession'' lobe that of a monkey train
er. Peie has a character that ought to
be sustained, and Portland should be
made to suffer for her siander.
The Chikciimax. A prospectus is
issued, announcing that the Pacifit;
Churchman would be commenced again
about the 12th of May. It will be under
the immediate charge of Bishop Morris,
assisted by the clergy of the Episcopal
Church. The well Known energy und
ability of the Bishop is a sure guarantee
that the paper mtisi flourish. It is to be
published monthly, at SI 50 per annum.
Sit.t.v. A telegraph dispatch from
Washington states ihe silly story that the
President favors the appointment of Sum
ner Secretary of the Treasury. A man
that would have another removed from a
Senate Committee will not likely appoint
him as one of bi-j chief officers. The dis
patch is simply a blind to deceive Sum
ner's friends. Nobody but a fool will
place atiy reliance in this siily report

from Corvallis, under date of the Bnb.
A voting nun named White, a student
of Phiiomoth College, got iuio a fight yes

Our readers will remember the arrest of
Mr. Bear, at this place, under the name f
J Curtis, some three months since, and
that he was taken back to Brownvilie,
Nebraska. IL trial came off last month,
and he confessed his guilt. He was sen
tenced to one years' imprisonment. It is
understood that he will be pardoned.
We find the following communication re
litin"- to him in the Omaha ILrall of the
I'Jth of Match, which wiil be read with
In writing lhi-3 communication I have
nothing to say in extenuation of the ?rim.
of J. K. Baer. except t'O far as a trutiUu
statement, ol the peculiar circumstances o!
his case may better iniurm the public mini,
of the cotiisi of events which made hin
almost an in voluntary criminal. Up to
the time of his sudden disappearance from
the est v ot Brownvilie. he had held a high
positioii in the pecuniary trust and social
respect of the community in which he
One morning he was missing, a distract
ed wilt was inquiring for his whereabouts,
and the town was thunderstruck over his
disappearance ; and it was not until
letter ol explanation was found, in his
handwriting, under the door of ihe Demo
crat office, that the public and his friends
accepted the truth thus forced upon ihein,
that he was a fugitive from justice und a
defaulter lo the amount of S12.0U0.
Some months prior to bis departure w'ph
the money of the express company, he had
contracted the habit of gambling. lie was
at that time earning one hundred and fifty
dollars a month, and had but a Wife and
child to support. His bahlts were no:
expensive, and he no doubt rnigftt have
laid up much more than half.
The terrible fascination of gaming took
entire posse-sim of him. Week after
week he saS', his earnings dwindling away,
and in a tit of despeiation he boirowed
some of the company's money in hopes of
retrieving h;s losses.
Returning from play one night be found
that he had gone beyond the power of his
restoration, and knowing that the differ
ence in the accounts would be discovered
within a week, his gambling known to his
friends and family, he absconded with
S 12.000, and was nit lor some months
heard of until his arrest in Oregon City,
IDs own words tell the story better than
The next morning I realized what I
had done. I wanted to go back and re
store the money, and would have done so
could I have devisid any way of doing it
wi; bout discovery ; but it was too late,
and I could only doe the country. 1 de
termined to go to some iar off place, invest
what money 1 had. and make enough in
three years lo pay back wb it I hud taken.
God only knows what I have suffered
while thinking over the wrongs done my
wife and little child.
I never slept a night until I was taken,
without the use of morphine, and 1 lie night
of my arrest I felt more relieved than 1
had tor months Indole. I knew all along
for months that the officers we.e coming
to lake me back to Brownvilie. and when I
lirst knew it 1 packed up my things t go
to South America, but, whim I realized
that the same tortures of conscience would
follow me i here. I 'Concluded to wail ; and
then began to look anxiously for the ar
rival of the men to come and take me.'
Mr. Baer was employed by Ben IIol
lalay in Portland, Oregon, and during
his stay in that place bad wen the conli
deuce of the community. That he antici
pated his arrest, is proven by a sworn
aO.'davit. ! .ued by the Secietury of State
in Ore i n.
