GOTJMTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
DALLAS, SATURDAY, JULY 9.
Of conrso obo cannot predict ceis
tainly vrliat order of things will be pre
sented ia the political campaigns of
1872, but still enough points may be
gathered to justify speculation.
The v Kc'pqb! jean party are doing
nothing particularly in regard to the
,. presidential noounation in 1872, but
aU, rather, concede that Grant will be
continued a second terni la the I)em
- ocratic ranks the canvass has com
. inenced, and the leading Eastern pa
pers are urging the claims of their own
There seems to be a great war. be
tween the Extern DeraocYacy and that
of the Southern and 'Western States.
The former seek the iiegro votes and
desire the honest discharge of the pub
lie debt, while the; Western portion of
the party adopt repudiation resolutions
and cry for a "white man's goTern
r ' mt4itifoSniV Vne ''bonSholS! is
tee, and, of course, will not hesitate to
m manipulate niattcrs"'in the interest of
Hoffman, the candidate for the Presi
dency. This man is not the choice of
the Western Democracy, who declare
that a New York man led them to de
feat feefore, and that they wish to enter
the; field with a Western candidate.
The Pittsburg Post is particularly se
we on Hoffman, and declares that no
soon ast of the Alleghaoies is compe
tent for the office. No one is indicated
as the choice of that papery only that
it be a Western man 9Ue Mobile
Register favors Gentffal Hancock, but
fears a Chase movement that will not
work Jiaruiony to the party.
There can hardly fail to be a serious
division within the ranks of the Pe
Wi' cracy in the next National Conven
tion, lor there will bo a large repudia
tion clement from the South and West
that will be bitterly,. opposed -by the del
cgates from the Kast. This question
of finance alone will so divide the party
that it will have no show of success,
however bright its prospects may be
with harmonious action. If Hoffman
in nominated we can defeat him asca-y
r as we did Seymour, in G8; or if a
Western man, 4d a Republican plat
form be presented, the , same fate
awaits him that has overtaken former

The Oregonian, of the 4th, has an
editorial on a rumor to the effect that
the Oregon and California Railroad is
to be extended no farther south than
I'Kagene, and hopes that the company
will hasten to contradict such rumors,
submit evidence to the contrary. This
rumor U no new thing. It was freely
talked of in Salem two years ago, or
rather daring the last session of the
Legislature. It was the settled con
viction of. the friends of the West Side
that the'members of Jackson county
sold out their prospects for a road when
they voted in the interest of the East
Side Company. It will soon be appar
ent that Mr. Williams made a mistake
when he procured an amendment to the
Humboldt bill, forcing that road into
the Rogue River Valley. If the 0. &
Q. TC. R. Co. build a road no farther
than Eugene it is certain that our
friends south are left to hold tbe' snipe
fuck. It seems to us that they have
been acting a 'dog in a manger" pol
icy. v If the route had been by DiaJ
taond peak, we of the West Side of the
river would have been benefitted,
whereas no one is likely to receive any
favors or even their just rights.
The Albany Democrat attacked the
' Jfcrald before tho "election, and silenced
it. It was a muzzled organ. The vie
torious Democrat then turned on the
Jacksonville jfctff, but the little moun
tain organ fought back, and since the
-election has taken the" offensive and
fiven charged the Democrat with being
a inbsidixed sliest. To this the Demo
erai has no answer, and the forced con
'elusion is that tlie Albany paper w it-,
aelf a muzzled organ.

United States ami Labor.
Elaborate reports huve been recently
presented to btth Houses of the Eng
lish Parliament, presenting from an
English standpoint the condition of the
industrial classes of this country, and
fully explaining the inducements that
are held out to foreign laborers to im
migrato to the lnitcd States.
From that report, it is evident that
America is regarded as the parudise of
laborers, and justly, too. An examin
ation into the growth and prosperity of
the.United States is never more inter
esting than when it is directed to the
details of tho vast industrial machin
ery by which this growth has been ef
fected. The wealth of tho United
States is of comparatively . recent ac
quisition. It can be traced back by no
long Hues of42sutaiimcnt, descending
from father to son, as in '-England,' nor
is it possessed, in the main, by those
who have not accumulated it by per
sonal industry, skill, or supervision.
There is no country in the world where
wealth and easy competency are the re
sult of honest industry, nor where so
large an aggregate of it remains in the
possession of those who do the burdens
of labor. It is true that there is too
large a number who live by preying
upon the producers of wealth; but
when these are considered in compari
son with the farmers, the artisans, the
laborers of all classes, their numbers
will be found to be insignificant, and
their wealth fleeting -uncertain and
not nearly as great as- miht be sup
posed by the contemplation of some
master-stroke by which fortunes are
suddenly acquired, but not earned.
The immense tide of immigration
that has been flowing into this country
for many years past, affords an evidence
of the superior attractions of the Uni
ted States for the industrial classes,
which has been corroborated by the
English report referred to. This re
port dwells upon the educational adyan
tages afforded by our system of com
mon schools- showing how, in the
language of the report, ''the lowly citi
zen of to-day may aspire to .Presiden
tial honors to morrow.!' j
The following sentence" contains in a
nutshell, the whole secret of our na
tional and individual prosperity:
The laboring clns may be said to
embrace the entire American nation.
Every man works for a liring, follows
a profession, or is engaged either Tn
mercantile or industrial pursuits.
This can be said uf no other country
in the world, and especially where he
reditary nobility constitutes a large
class, since they are drones of society,
emscming enormously the firuit3 of
productive labor. It cannot do other
wise than to diminish the income of
the laboring man, and to interfere, iu
other respects, with his national inter
ests. What wonder, then, that he
turns his weary steps to some other
land, where he may be relieved of his
burdens, and where the doors of ad
vancement are open to him, and bid
him to enter ? In this country there
is no titled nobility to frown upon him
f if ho attempt to rise to what he'eonsid
crs a higher class of society. He finds
lands in obundancc, so cheap that the
actual cost in fee per acre, is
less than the rent he paid for his little
"patch" in the fold country.
He finds himself within a stone's
throw of an excellent school, where
his children , can acquire an education
in most cases, free of cost. In the
meantime ho can pursue his trade or
calling, support his family handsomely,
have meat every day in the week, and
deposit a sum of money in the savings
bank every Saturday night. He soon
buys a lot in the outskirts and builds
a little house upon it, and moves from
the "tenement" . building forever.
Henceforth he is a man of property,
independent, we rflay say rich, when
compared with his condition in the old
country. His change olitically is no
le&s wonderful. In d ue course of time
he becomes a voter- a law-maker, and
his aid is asked in deciding tho most
important political questions of the cen
tury. ; UA'vrd " ' .'

' Portland, Ogn., July 5, 1870., f
Editor Orkqon ian : I
In your paper of yesterday I noticed
an article' of -which tho following is an
extract : .. ;. , ., .,: ... ,.'.fJ r t..t
Will Mr. Holliday, controlling both
the east and west -sides, extend a rail
road farther than the head of the Will
amette valley? It looks as if thi3
might bo doubtful. , It is even whis
pered hero, and with pome appearance
of plausibility, that, having pccured
undisputed control of the railroad sys
tem of the most populous and import
ant part of, Oregon, . he
will not build a railroad further south
than Eugene City, or the head of the
valley. .1 .
The Oregon and California Railroad
Company will this year build and equip
their road for a distance of one hun
dred miles south of Portland, and will
thereafter complete it as rapidly as pos
sible to the head of the Wilhimetto
valley. After reaching that point they
will continue to build south without in
terruption ; that is, in case the bill now
before Congress to grant aid for the
Humboldt branch road is passed in
such a shape as to cause that- road to
come in'.o the valley of Rogue river.
Rut if the grant for that branch should
be so made as to avoid the southern
counties and bring the road ! into -the
Willamette valley, "at or near Eugene
City" by the middle Fork of the Will
amettc river, then we fchould build oar
road no further outh than the head of
this valley, where we would ultimately
connect with the Humboldt road. In
case affairs should take this shape it
w uld not be practicable to build a
road further south than'the point indi
cated. For we should be cut off from
southern and eastern connections, inas
much as the Central Pacific Company
would almost certaiuly cause their Cal
ifornla and , Oregon road to diverge
from the route originally laid down,
and build it by the easier route by way
of the valley of Pitt , river. I so as to
make a connection with the Ilumboldt
Eugcne branch. They would thus have
a continuous line of railroad running
into Oregon, under their own control.
Whether 'wc build our road south of
the head of the Willamette valley or
not, depends therefore on. the action to
bo taken by Congress relative to the
route of the branch road : from the
Humboldt. ! "
It is the desire, as it has been the
intention, of the Oregon and Califor
nia Railroad Company to build their
'road to the southern boundary of the
State J and thry will do so without de
lay, unless their purposes are checked
by such legislation in Congress as will
render it irapractible to carry them
out. In other, words, if the! grant for
the Humboldt branch shall be so made
as to connect with our road in Ro;jue
river valtay, and thus secure also a con
ncction for us with the Oregon and Cal
i for nia road at the State line, we shal
continue our road south of the Will
amette valley. Otherwise wo s"hall not
do so. j ':. ..;'
In this connection it may: be as wcl
for mo to state that I shall go forward
and build the west sido road, complct
ing the first section within the time al
lotted by the act of Congress, and ulti
mately continuing it south; to a June
tion with the Oregon and California
road at some point near the head of
the Willamette valley. j
