More Facts and Figures.
It is somewhat remarkable lo Gnd (hat
i- there are a few Radical editors who think
that the people are such fools as to belief
that the Radicals are using the immense
revenue collected annually for the pay
ment of the public debt. The Oregonum
attempted to account for the different
statements made by Boutwell, but it soon
found out that figures were stubborn facts
and forsook him. Here is another little
matter which we hope some Radical finan
cier will rise and explain. Says the Pa
triot : Mr. Boutwell, in his speech ut Cin
xinnati. on the 28th of September last,
etated that the public debt on the 1st day
of March, 18CC, amounted to $2,530,703,
890 80. This included the Pacific railway
'bonds, for which the Government is re
sponsible. The public debt statement of July 1st,
1871, shows that the total debt, including
the Pacific railway bonds, was on the
30th of June last, $2,1G l.S0o'-iu. 51, so
that the debt, on the 30th of June last,
was Just $Cr,95$,-18j 29 leS3 than it was
ton the 1st of March, 1SCG.
For instance :
On the 1st of March, ISGo,
it was Si.j30,7C3.S90 89
On the 30th of June, 171.
it was 2,1 G 4.805.-1 05 51
Reduction $G5,958,1S5 20
Accompanying the monthly debt state
ment July 1st. 1871, Mr. Boutwell issued
a "statement of bonds purchased by the
Treasury Department which have been
cancelled and destroyed," which purports
to give tbs entire amount and date of pur
chase, with the cost in lawful money.
.From that "statement" it appears that the
-Secretary of the Treasury purchased and
cancelled United States bonds from May,
1SC0, to June llih, 1871, amounting to
198,120,509 18, at a cost of $239,075,
173 19 !
In his speech in the House of Represen
tatives, on the 21 st of July, 1808. (pee
Congressional Globe.) Mr. Boutwell stated
that the Johnson Administration had paid?
ibetween April, 1805. and January, 1868,
one hundred arid sicfy-ix millions of the
.public debt, adding, that '-almost one-third
of the public debt of the country has been
paid in two years and nine months."
-If Secretary Boutwell had continued
he reduction of the debt at the rate he
says the Johnson Administration reduced
he would, by this time, have almost ex
tinguished the entire debt. Instead, how
ever, of paying Rt ra' 1 a thousand
millions in two years and nine months, he
now states that the entire reduction of the
debt for the last five years and four
months, and including his entire Adminis
tration, is less than sixlv-six millions, and
refuses to consent to a reduction of tax
on the pretence that he is rapidly paying
off the debt !
Will Mr. routwell. or the Orcgnnian.
now '-rise to explain'-' why it is, that after
purchasing and cancelling Government
bonds at a cost of over iico hundred and
ihiriy nine millions, we are still in debt
(within sixty-five millions) as much as we
were five years ago ?
Raoicat. Tacthts. At present every
Radical paper is filled with accounts of
the Tammany frauds, and they endeavor
to create the impression 'hat what is
known ns the Tammany Ring in New
York is a Democratic organization. This
is done to divert the people's attention
from the gigantic thefts being perpetrated
by the Federal'' Administration, and the
outrages committed by it. The New
Ycrk Ring contains among i'.s members
some of the leading Radicals in that city,
among whom we may name Thomas Mur
phy. Grant's Collector of Customs in that
city. No wonder a Ring wita even one
member like Murphy is corrupt. All the
more honest Republicans of New Yoik
have endeavored to have Grant remove
him for dishonesty. It is stated that it
cost Murphy $80,000 to secure his confirm
ation, and that he presented Grant with a
Q cottage at Bong Branch, worth $30,000
in consideration of the appointment, lie
is known to be unscrupulously dishonest,
and a loading member of the Tammany
liinB Jt't Grant retains him in one of the
most important positions in the country
This expose of corruption is not a Radi
cal discovery. I't.meroifx ZX mocral came
out against the Ring long before the Rad
ical thought of it. The Democracy of the
country flu not endorse corruption, be it
perpetrated in their own party or by the
Radicals. The Xew York Democratic
State Convention condemned these Tam
many frauds in emphatic terms, and tie
demanded speedy punishment for the per
petrators. Everywhere tiie Radicals have
endorsed Grant and his administration,
which is known to reek with corruption
in every department. Democrats oppose
rascality wheiever it is found, while the
Radicals endorse it if found in their own
party. This is the difference between the
Gain.-. Ih? result of the election in

Tlie Vile Worli FrogTesses.
The hell-honnd3 of the Washington us
urpers, says the Ecaminer, are still at work
on the poor, prcs rate and defenseless peo
ple of South Carolina. The best citizens
of (bo State are arrested, each day, torn
from their helpless and unprotected fami
lies, and thrust into jail. Women and
children are the greatest sufferers, and are
fleeing in terror before Grant's myrmidons
So shocking is the work in which the sol
diery is engaged that, the dispatch says,
"private soldiers are advising citizens to
fly to avoid arrest."
Another dispatch says, "It appears that
that there was a good deal of carelessness
exhibited in drafting the President's pro
clamation declaring martial law in South
Carolina. One of the counties intended
to be included in the so-called insurrec
tionary district was omitted altogether!
ami one inclnded, the county of Marion(
of which the Radical Senator from that
quarter writes that he never knew of a
more peaceable place."
Was there ever anything in tho whole
history of civilized government more
damnably atrocious than this? Here is
the Rresid'.-nt of a professedly free gov
ernment, claiming to be limited in its op
erations, setting aside the Constitution and
trampling upon the liberties of the citizen
in a manner so careless as to declare mar
tial law in a county as peaceful as any in
the United Stales. What a mockery of
justice it is to have criminal courts and
sentence men to be hanged and sent to
the penitentiaries for the violation of some
local cole, whoa here is the head of the
Republic committing ia broad daylight
greater crimes than any which were ever
expiated on the gallows in any State of
the Union. And yet the American peo
ple stand listlessly by, like craven slaves,
and utter no word of protest. Had they
one-half the spirit and devotion to liberty
which animated our fathers in the days of
the Revolution, they would rise up and
hang the wicked usurper who calls him
self President, together with his corrupt,
unprincipled and thieving advisers.
There is no more necessity for these pro
ceedings in South Carolina than there is
in Oregon. The whole thing is a wanton
war upon a help-less people, in order to
manufacture political capital for a party
The Republican leaders know that it is
only through civil commotion and social
agitation that they can prolong their pow
er: '-Let us have peace," ' means, carried
out in good earnest, let the Radicals give
up power, and for that reason they have
determined there shall be no peace. And
so the war has been inaugurated in poor,
down-trouden and bedeviled South Caro
lina, to be extended, no doubt, to other
States in due time. We have faith in the
justice of an omnipotent God, and, there
fore, we believe that we will yet see the
day when the authors of these great
crimes will expiate them in blood. The
people will not be stolid forever. An
idiot may be pricked into desperation.
G u.vKSTOX. (Texas). Oct. 27. Returns
from different counties and districts give
Goddin, (Democrat)-i. Ill majority. The
count at Austin, by changing votes of
other counties, and throwing out Lime
stone and Freestone counties, which had a
majority of 1,(530. gave Clark (Republican)
a majority of 917. A certificate of elec
tion was given him. Conner will be the
only Democrat who will get a certifi
cate of election. Degener (Republican)
refuses to accept a certificate, on the
ground that Hancock (Democrat) received
a majority of the votes.
Here we have a plain acknowledgement
to what degree of infamy Radicalism will
go in order to retain power. What a farce
it is to talk of the freedom of the ballot.
There is no such a thing now as the free
dom of elections in any State where the
Radicals hold power, unless that freedom
is exercised to suit them. The Democratic
State officials of California might with as
much propriety, yes, more, for the major
ities are much smaller, issue certificates to
the defeated Democratic candidates. The
infamy committed by these R idical
thieves even is too low for one of their
own members to allow himself to become
a party to the outrageous swindle upon
the expressed will of the people. In the
better days of this Republic, men, guilty
of such an outrage could not live in safe
ty among a people who they thus defraud
and rob of their sacred rights. The men
who are guilty of this rascality are the
representative men of the Administration,
and the reader can easily understand that
no honest expression from the people will
ever be allowed to take the power from
the chief who has created and appointed
the scoundrels in Texas. They are there
to do a usurpers will, and are protected
in their rascality by the Administration.
This is but an example what we may ex
pect next fall. Already the chief of these
hounds is xreparing the way to prevent
certain States from voting, and unless the
people will rise as one man against those
who are thus outraging their rights, the
time for elections will soon be at an end.
Look, freemen of Oregon, at this outrage,
and calmly ask yourselves whether it is
even policy to longei trust your and your
children's freedom in such corrupt and
venal hands. Act before it is too late.
Font Tickets. The Detroit Union thus
puts up the fight in Massachusetts : There
are four sets of candidates for State offi
cials in Massachusetts to be voted for at
the ensuing election. The Democratic
candidate for Governor is Adams, the
Republican candidate is Washburne, the
Prohibition candidate i.s Tittman, and
Chamberlain is the Labor Union candi
date. In 1S70 the vote for Governor
stood 79.000 for Claflin, -18.000 for Adams
and 21.000 for Phillips. This gave the
Republican candidate some 10 000 mnior
ity over the others. Information from
there recently received, leads us to confi
dently predict a much larger vote tor the
Labor Union candidate than was ever be
fore polled. They are confident of gain
ing over 10.000 votes this fall overthe
vote of last year, and expect to hold the
balance of power in the Legislature. The
rrobibtionists also expect large gains.
Whatever of gain there is tor either party
will be almost entirely from the Repub
lican party. If these expectations are
realized the chances are greatly in favor
of the eleetion of Adams as the next
Governor of the old Bay State.

In 18G0, says the Washington Patriot,
the cost of our military establishment, as
stated by Mr. Boutwell
Financial Report, 1870, (p.
30,) was $10,472,202 72
And for last year, (1870)... 47,655,075 40
Being a difference in cost between a
Democratic and Republican Administra
tion for one year, in the single item of
War Department expenditure, in time of
peace, amounting to $10,183,172 CS. In
other words, the Radicals taxed the coun
try last year nearly four times as much
for our standing army as the Democrats
expended in 18G0.
The report of the Adjutant General of
the army for 1870 informs us that the
army is divided as follows :
Military Div. of the Missouri. . 1 1.07C men
Military Division of the South. 8. 704 men
Military Div. of the Atlantic. 5.159 men
Military Div. of the Pacific 4,(542 men
On page 151, Secretary of War's Re
port, it is stated that there wero moved
by the Pacific railroads during the year
1S70 13.012 persons, on account of army
transportation, at a cost of $882,235. in
cluding freight and animals. So that it
would seem that nearly one-half of the
entire army passed over the Pacific rail
roads during the year ; while it appears
from the report of the. Adjutant; General
that only 4.G12 troops are embraced in
the entire Military Division of the Pacific.
On the same page of the Secretary's re
port it is stated (hat "two steamers and
three sailing vessels have been sold during
the year fur 611.310," following on the
announcement that, during the same year,
the Department had chartered six steam
ers, four schooners, and one brig, at a cost
of $33,300 33!
We invite the deliberate judgment of
of the country upon the evidence whieh
is here presented. It is all embraced in
the official report of these Departments.
We submit to the taxpayers of the coun
try whether, in their own intelligent judg
ment, our rulers, who came into power
under a pledge of economy, are justified
in expending four times as much in main
taining the army as the Democrats paid in
1800? Why is the army more than double
what it was ten years ago? The Indians
are rapidly disappearing, and we are told
that the Indian policy of the President is
civilizing the tribes by the missionary la
bors of the peace commission.
Since the capture of the hospital wig
wams of the Piegans. with the few women
and children who had survived the small
pox, there has been no Indian war. Why.
then, unless it be for controlling elections
and perpe'.uating the present dynasty, is

The Oitumvva Democrat
is sick of the
'New Departure." It swallowed the
dose, during the recent election in Iowa,
but immediately thereafter, bids farewell
in the following manner :
It is earnestly to be desired that those
Democrats who so strongly urged the
Xew Departure arid forced it upon the
party are now saiistied.
We lost California. Maine went Repub
lican by an increased majority : Connec
ticut ditto ; Ohio goes Republican by
20.00 0 ; Pennsylvania by 15,000 ; Iowa
will roll up 20.000 ; everywhere we have
lost sine:; the Xew Departure was taken.
This brings us to a personal matter o!
which we shall brieily speak. The editor
of this paper before the Democratic Slate
Convention assembled done all that he
could to secure the right kind of a plat
form for the Iowa Democracy. He went
as a delegate to the convention and find
ing that a large majority of the delegates
were in lavor of even the extreme views
of Mr. Yallandigham and that they would
in all probability be forced upon the con
vention, accepted the compromise resolu
tions whieh were offered by General A. C.
Dodge. We accepted the platform not
because we liked it but for the sake
of peace and to secure harmony li ihe
ranks of the Democracy. Those dele
gates opposed to the Xew Departure
could have inau gurated at Des .Moines a
feud which would have split the party in
twain. We preferred however to do our
fighting inside the organization and to
direct our fire against the common enemy.
Willing to allow the Xew Departure to

to support the ticket nominated

selves to be dragged auy longer at the
chariot wheels of Radicalism. We have
submitted long enough ; we have carried

proclamation on the 28th tilt :
The seasons have again enabled hus

rewarded. We are a peace with all na

Makixette (Wisconsin), October 11.
Yesterday morning, in company witfi"
several gentlemen from Marinette. Wis.,
and Menominee, Mich., we visited the site
of what was once the beautiful and thriv
ing little village of Peshtigo. It contain
ed about 15.000 people, and was on? of
the busiest, liveliest, and one of the most
enterprising communities clong the bay
shore. Standing amid the charred and
blackened embers, with the frightfully
mutilated corpses of men. women, chil
dren, horses, oxen. cows, dogs, swine aud
fowl every house, shed, barn, outhouse
or slructuie of any kind swept from the
earth as with ihe very besom oi destruc
tion our emotions cannot be described
in language. No pen dipped in liquid
fire can paint Ihe scene; language "in
thoughts that breathe and words that
btiru" gives but the faintest impression of
STATEMENT OF SUHVIV0HS.
From the survivors we glean the fol
lowing in reference to the scene at the
village and ia the farming region cota-
Sunday evening, after church, for about
half an hour, a death-like stillness hung
over the doomed town. The smoke from
the fires in the region around was .so
thick as to bo stilling, and hung like a
funeral pail over everything, and all was
enveloped ia Fgyptian darkness. Soon
light puffs of air were fell ; the hcrison
at the southeast, .south and southwest be
gan to be faintly illuminated ; a percept
ible trembling of tLe earth was felt, and a
distant roarbroke the awful silence. Peo
ple began to fear that some awful calam
ity was impending, but as yet no one
even dreamed of the danger.
The illumination sooti became intensi
fied into a fierce lurid glare : the roar
deepened into a howl, as if all the demons
from the infernal pit had been let loose,
when the advance gusts of wind from the
main body ot the tornado struck. Chim
neys were blown down, houses were un
roofed, the roof of the woodenwai e fac
tory was lilted, a large warehouse filled
with tubs, pails, kanakans, keelers and
fish hits was nearly demolished, and amid
the confusion, terror and terrible appre
hension of the moment, the fiery element,
in tremendous inroiiing billows and
masses of sheeted fi.une. enveloped the
devoted village. The frenzy ol despair
seized on ail hearts, strong men bowed
and children like lightened spectres III t
tod through the awful gloom, were swept
away like autumn leaves. Crowds rush
ed for the bridg?, like all else, was re
ceiving its baptism of lire. Hundreds
crowded into the river ; cattie plunged
iu i..h them, and b i:;g huddled together
in the general confusion of the moment,
many v, ho had taken to the water to avoid
the flames wore drowned. A great many
were on the blazing bridge when it fell.
The debris from the burning town was
hurled ever and on the heads of those
who were in the water, killing many, and
maiming oilier:-; so that they gave tip in
despair and sank to a watery grave.
