THE OLD BARN.
Rickety, old and crazy,
binglelcss, lacking some doors ;
Bad in the upper story, .
Wanting some boards in the floor,
t Beams strung thick with cobwebs,
Ridgepole yellow and gray,
Hanging in helpless innocence
- Over the mows of hay
Bow the winds turned around it
Winds of a etoimy day
Scattering the fragrant hay seed,
Whisking the straws away; .
Streaming in at the crannies
i Spreading the clover smell!
Changing the dark old granary
Into a flowery doll.
1 Ob, how I loved the shadow,
That clung to the silent roof,
Day-dreams wove with the quiet,
; Many a glitteiing woof;
; I climbed to the highest tafter,
Watched the swallows at play,
Admired the knots in the bearding,
And rolled in the billows of bay.
Palace of king couldn't match it!
The Vatican loses its charm,
When placed in my memory '5 balance,
i Beside tee old gTy barn !
' Splendor, wealth, may not charm us,
. Association is all
We love the home of-our childhood -Better
than marble-floored hall. 1
I sat for hours in the summer
On the threshold gray,
' And saw the eows in pasture
Take their lazy-paced war;
The Iambs, snow-white as the daisies,
Frolicked from hill to tarn
Or fell asleep in the shadow
Made by the "clever" old barn.
I've roamed o'er the Southern country,
Stood in mosques of the East,
Galloped in the Western prairies,
Gathered in contentment at last; j ,
And I'd rather scent the clover, !
Piled in the barn's roomy raow.,
'Than sit in the breath of the highlands ,
Poured from Appenine brows !. i
Portland, Astoria and West Side Rall-
The following dispatch was received
at this office yesterday from Senator
Washington, March 20, 1870.
The House Committee have agreed
to the Portland, Astoria and McMinn-
ville railroad bill, which will pass as
soon as it can be reached.
GEO. II. WILLIAMS.
This is welcome intelligence. Senator
Williams has taken great personal in
terest in urging this bill upon the
House Committee, and as they have
agreed to report it there can 'now be no
doubt but' it will pass. We shall now
have an opportunity to see another
manifestation of Democratic opposition
to land grants. That ridiculous bill of
Smith's, which was clearly thrown in
vwith a hope of defeating all grants for
he west side and then giving onportu
pity to lay the-blame on Republicans,
jhas not been heaid of since it was first
proposed. "But this bill, which conveys
a grant of great value, will go through :
' xmd, thanks to the ideas of Republicans
. in Congress, the railroad system of this
State will be fostered and built up.
T"ho ' people of Oregon will not be slow
to see who are their friends and sup
porters in these important matters.
A young man at Paterson, N. JM
who read that a young lady s pulse al-
' hand than any where else, tried to nd
" out for himself the other night, while
. sparking his intended, and shf busted I
an iron skillet over his head. 11$ has
concluded that their pulses beat as
strong over the head as 'apy where;
. , Uut he is not of an inquiring turn of
: mind any more.
According to the Revolution there is
a. faro bank on Fourteenth street, 'Wash
ington, kept by a woman, where the
woman clerks of the Treasury go to gam
l?lo their salaries away.
The Strength of the Republican Party.
Representative Daws, in Iris New
Hampshire speech, said :
There is one other thing which I
wish to mention to-night. Gen. Grant
is at the head of the party. Thank
God that ho can criticise it. A party
that can probe and uncover its sores
can grow strong and healthy by gclP
probing. What has it done this last
week but to take one 01 its own mem
bens, found to be corrupt, and driven
him by a unanimous vote from the
hallsof Congress. Did you ever find
the Democratic party in pursuit of any
corruption within its own rauks except
to fatten on it? Did! you ever find
them hunting up those who lived" upon
the plunder of the public ticasury
within their own ranks, and bringing
them to condign punishment ? I am
proud to belong to a party no conscious
of the rectitude of its intentions and
the strength ot its position that it can
bcarto have the plain truth told it by
its owu friends; and I assure you that
I take great pleasure inbnnging to
)ou the message of the President him
self, given to me yesterday, and to
show you that all , departments of the
Government, Executive as well as Leg
islativc, arc to be united in the work
of reducing the public expenditures.
The Democratic party are the same as
it was twenty years ago, and seems to
take no note of passing events. It is
still haunted by the neirro, but he rises
as it fights, and all efforts to crush hinvr
have lifted him higher and higher,
till he has taWn his scat as a Peer of
the Saulsburys, in the very peat of
Jefferson Davis. What new claim has
the Democratic party to put forth that
shall justify the people iu restoring it
to power? It has nono; if, on the
other hanoVa candid and fair review
of what the Republican party has
done, and is capable of 'doing, has giv
cn a generous pledge of what it will
do, does it not make every one.of the
i;ood and patriotic chiaens of New
Hampshire stand stronger and firmer
in hi adherence to. the j principles and
the organization of that party ?
Another instance, comes this week
in the telegraphic reports, where Rep
resentative Logan criticises the opin
ions of Gen. Sherman, and says that
the legislator njust not be influenced
by any army officer to act in direct op
position to his settled ideas of right.
Public Economy. Last week we
an extract from Daws 2scvr
Hampshire speech, comparing the re
ceipts and expenditures of the last
year of Johnson's administration with
the first of President Grant's. Speak
er Blair has written a letter o the
same subject, in which he says :
It will be observed that the receipts
are $20,000,000 more in Gen. Grant's
first year than in Mr. Johnson's last
year. Over 820,000,000 of this must
be credited to the internal reveuue,
which has been much more faithfully
colllccted; for it will be noted that
this large increase in amount has been
derived from diminished and contract
ed sources of taxation, many of the
taxes in rorce during a part of the
year 1868-9 having boen repealed be
fore President Grant came into office.
Whether regard, then, be had to the
nuemy wan wnicn ine revenue is col
lected, or the economy with which it
is expended, the comparison for the
past is undeniably and overwhelming
ly in favor of the present administra
Japan. -The persecutions of native
Chnstains have been renewed. Ih
proselytes are Romish Jesuits. The
representatives of the treaty powers
met the otlicials 01 the Japanese Gov
eminent, and they gave as reasons for
their action those winch governed the
founder of tho old dynasty two hundred
and fifty years ago, when the Jesuits
were expelled from the country aud their
adherents tortured and massacred Uy
thousands, viz : The fear that the
proselyting of their people may lead to
a spirit of discontent and finally under
mine' the time-honored institution of
their Government, which 4s based upon
Germany. In the Reichstag yes
terday Count von Bismarck made
long speech against the abolition of the
death penalty, declaring that the adopt
ion of such a measure would be fatal to
the new code. The - Reichstag, how
ever, voted in favor of abolition by a
majority of J7. i

Democratic Cluarrcl In New York.
New York, March 28. The meet
ing ol the Tammany Hall general com
mittee, announced for to-night, did not
take place. The hall remains closed,
the entrance being guarded by a largo
force of police. It seems a meeting of
Sachems was held, this ' afternoon,
among whom was Oakley Hall, Peter
13, Sweeney and Judge Dowling, which
adopted resolutions to the effect that
the movement for the meeting origin
ated with Morrissey and his associates,
with the object still further to foment
disturbances in the party which they
inaugurated; that threats of personal
violence wero made against members
of the committee, substituting mob
force for the regular orderly action of
the Democracy, auQ refusing to ojen
the hall for such a purpose. They also
appointed a committee to adopt uieas
ures to secure just reprtFentaiion to the
democrats in the city general commit
tee, and harmonious organization of the
party. Greu excitement prevailed
with regard to the action of the Sa
chems omonu' the adherents of Morris
sey and O'llrien, who assembled iu
great numbers in front of the hall.
Apt.rehcrjsions of violence l.ave been
so great that Bryant's minstrels closed
their theater. '1 he 'Young Democracy
finally betook themselves to the. City
Hall, in tho basement of which they
had a meeting. Nearly, all the leaders
of the recent movement against Twied
and Tammany wero present. A r.um-
cr or speeches were made accusing!
heir opponents 0: being in league with
Superintendent Kennedy and the radi
als. A he session " was quite storm.
There was considerable wrangling
unon" the leaders, and the mtttiuir

The Worhr s editorial of to-morrow
will say that, the Young Democracy

committee. It lost one only, who was
absent from his post. The ring, it
says, irretrievably ruined itself, and
too refugo in an ignominious and cow-
udly flight. These 1ST men, being a
majority of u2, unanimously parsed
resolutions asserting tho demands of
the Young Democracy as to legislation;
declaring their" contempt for the cow-
ardly lljght ol the ring from a vote ;
and then peaceably dispersed. The

Supreme Court Decision.
Washington. March 27. The Su
preme tourt of tho United States to
day affirmed the decision of tho Court
of Appeals of Kentucky, that a State
may levy a tax on. the shares of a Na
tional Bank and enforce the collection
through the bank : holding that the
shares of a bank arc tho property of
shareholders, and arc distinct capital.
The Chief, Justice dissented.
San Francisco, March 20. Gen"
Thomas' death has cast a gloom over
the entire community, and we mourn
the loss of a faithful soldier and citi-
zen. iiie city is array ed m a garb of
mourning. The flags among tho ship
ping, upon the fortifications and pub
lic and private buildings arc flying at
half mast. According to the cxpresvsed
wish of 3Irs. Thomas all ostentatious
display in the funeral services will be
avoided. "The 'remains will be sent
East on Thursday. Gen. Sherman has
scut an official dispatch to hcadouar-
tors here, announcing that tho news of
Gen. Thomas' death has been received
Cueral Order In Regard to General
Washington, March 29. A gene
ral order from the headquarters of "the
army, announces the death of General
Thomas. It gives an entire account of
his services. The General (Sherman)
has known General Thomas intimately
since they sat as boys on the same
bench, and the quality in him which
he holds up for admiration and as an
example to the young, is his complete,
entire devotion to duty. The General
was sent to Florida, Mexico, Texas and
Arizona, when duty there was absolute
banishment. He went cheerfully, and
never -asked a personal favor, exempt
ion or leave of absence. In battlo he
never wavered firm, fall . of faith in
his cause, he knew it would prevail j
never sought advancement of rank tr
honotjat the cxpenso of any' one.
Whatcvj&r he earned of these were his
own, and no one disputed his fame.
The very impersonation of honesty, in-
tcgrity and honor, he will stand as the
beau ideal of the soldier and gentle
man. Though he leaves no child to
bear his name, the old Army of the
Cumberland, numbered by tens . of
thousands, called him father and weep
for him tears. of manly grief. His
wife,who cheered him with her mes
sages of love in the darkest hours of
the war, will mourn him irrsadness,
chastened by the sympathy of the
whole country. The last sad rites due
him as a man and a soldier will be paid
at Troy, on the arrival of his remains,
and the fricuds of the family and all
his comrades are invited thereto share
iu the obsequies. At the military posts
and stations flags will be displayed at
half mast, and 100 guns will be fired
on the day after the receipt of this or
der. I he usual badges of
wi'l be worn for thirty days.
There are about 50 officers and ex
officcrs in the city who served under
Gen. Thomas, and a meeting will be
held to morrow to take suitable action
with regard to his death.
Lazv Farmers.---Laziness prevents
a man from getting off his horse to put
up the fint rail that gets knocked off
the fence and through this lazy neglect
a whole field of corn is seriously dam
aged. ; '
- Laziness keeps a man from driving
one nail when one would do, and final
ly cvsts a carpenter's bill for extensive
Laziucss allows a gate to jjet off the
hinges and lie in the mud, or stand
propped by rails or a stable or barn
to leak and damage huudrcds of dollars
worth of provender.
Laziness, ,. in short, is the riht and
proper natre for nine-tenths of the ex
cuses given for bad farming. But by
far the most prolific of the many w istes
that are due to laziness is the waste of
ignorance. But this waste is in itself
so grc:t, and has so many ramifications,
that we shall have to defer its discus
sion for another time. Dixie (7ii.)
