OOUUTy OFFICIAL PAPER.
DALLAS, SATURDAY, JULY- 1G.
The Matter luPolkV
Tae 0egonjii funics out in its issue
of Wednesday and takes for the subject
"of its"leadei "What tne matter is in
Polk." It says, The Kepublicans lost
Polk Woutnty when they ought to have
carried it." How does the Oi egonian
.'fcnovr we ought to hare carried it ?
Does that paper think wa ought to have
TC&rrie.it against a fair majority of 30 or
40 votes? We supposed the majority
should rule in , repuMics like ours, j
Does the Oreqonian desire that men
should be purchased With money, body j
. , - - ......... 1 .
and mind, to act against their wishes
when they deposit their ballots, or does
lt desire that fraud and trickery should
be used to induce men to vote as it in
dicatcs"? 1 We say to the Oregonian,
thai tne democrats nan. m tnis county
; two years ago, a large majority, and they
liaa.at ine iaai election ; ana we ooiu u
v perfectly legitimate lor the political par-
ty mat nas a xair majority, w uavo aim
fcold the offices. - J
now is the Oregon'an effected by our
being beaten in Polk ? If we can en'
dure to live under Democratic rule so
far as the administration of this county
is concerned, the Oreganian in Multno
man ought not to complain. But we
think we understand what's the matter.
The members of the Legislature are not
favorable to the re-election of Mr. Wil-
iiaxrs No sir, Mr. Oregontan, nor
would, thehad the Republican ticket
We do" not blame the editor of the
Oregonian for making a hard and re
spectable fight -for the man from whose
hands he is receiving such fat things,
and we fully understand that while the
action of Williams is hard upon old Polk,
, it has been the "making of the purp."
t. Tne editor says that 'Judge Boise
and Sullivan have not been willing to
accept any prominent measure of the
Republican partyfor the last five jears.
W here did the , Oregonian stand two
and four years ago upon what it calls
the promincot measures of the party ?
. Was it in favor of negro suffrage then?
Ko, it Opposed it upon principle and
principles never changg. What has
come over the spirit of the Oregonianf8
. . dream ? Why did it finally come out
in favor of that which but a short time
before' it so bitterly opposed, and de
clared it was not the principles of our
party? Simply because the Oregonian
had no independence. Simply because
it was and is the servile 'tool of Holla
day and George-II. Williams, having
no mind of its own and being troubled
with the very disease which Me. says
Afflicts Polk county. The truth is that
men of Sullivan's viewshavenot change
inind of Williams, nor have they soen
fit fn unrrpnUfir iht ritrhl nl unhuiUntn
1 the wrong. And they have done right
to fight the evils of Jthe party in the
party, instead of leaving itand we tll
the Oregonian now that three fourths
,oi the Republican party., in Oregon,
- .r.eret. as much as Mr. P. C. Sullivan,
; that negro suffrage became a success in
. pur party. It never was established
by the voice of the people. When
Williams made his first canvass in the
State, on reconstraction, he said that
.we must have negro suffrage in the
South to create a loyal element, but not
in the loyal States : and when asked if
it was to be forced noon the Northern
4-" ... i ,;,- .-.
ptatcs, be answered "no, that there
y?n& bnt one man In the Senate who
located it, and that was '01d Sumner."
These were his exact wcrds, as disconr
1 teous as they may scein, and the Ore
ffontan said amen. The very next ses
sion f Congress the Fifteenth Araendf
ment passed, supported by Williams,
' nd the 'Oregonian said amen. Then
j ' Williams discovered that the negro in
Jhe youth voted the rebel ticket, and
; Val 1 ho had made a jfligtake ; ; and ; the
Oregonian responded amen. Then
' -Williams declared, -with uplifted haqd,
'that no other steps should bo taken in
v: that direction, and the Oregonian hal
' loocd good ! Then tho flatijraliption
' laws were changed so as to include all
. frica, and the Oregonian said! that's
right and this is the trifling facilation
. that is to be arraigned against men who
have pursued a straightforward course
r;pon thp jucstion of puffragc.
It savs that this course was pursued
probably through notions of policy by
those gentlemen. Yes sir, and if the
Oregonian had" possessed the independ-
ence to have assisted i a carrying out
the same policy (which was the only
trrie one), the party to dayjjroiild haVet I
beeu in full and complete power in 'Or
egori, and tbisis the opiolon of all well
posted politicians : it is the course pur-
o.,.l k -! ,T,rt :,t
the benate of the United States, that
the Southern States were in the Union
for one purpose, and out for another;
and the Oregonian, that has beaten us
in' Oregon the villainy of whose pur- j
pose sua u uetnaue anuwu iu uue ume,
ifyoa desire : to continue this unwar-
rantable attack and controversy.
' : ' " 1 .
The article further savs there is a pa-
per published in Polk, which has be
come tne echo of the nehtleman in
Polt c(mnt. -hose doIict has led the
party Q dcfeai tne peope JUjge
whose policy has led the party to de-
feat an(J we an the editor of the
0r((J0niaH that that echo shall ring in
hj3 cara to his heart's content ; that is,
UDle88 he concludes to abandon the
aanetnm and take refWe behind the
Custom House. We have been beaten
on account of your vacillations. Good
men of our'party knew not what to do,
nor where to go. Four years ago,
Union men might honestly differ ; but
now there are no Union men to differ
The editor thinks the name Union is
not the proper one, and could only
serve during the war. We differ, and
repeat it is the only name which could
have . charm for those who organized
under it, the loss of which has taken
hundreds of thousands from our ranks,
and justly, too.
He then undertakes, in a sickly man'
ner, to apologue for Horace Greeley,
by admitting he is partially politically
insane, but thinks he ought not to have
been hung, or Jeff. Davis, either.
'When it is said that the only correct
policy in relation to ; opposite races
should have been maintained, .we sup
pose it is meant that the colored race
never should have received the elective
That is precisely what is meant, Mr.
editor. We say ftere must be some
lino established to which the elective
franchise should bo extended. That
line ought to have been the line of
race. That line fixed by that supreme
power who alone can make it thus.
And if this bo not bo the line, will the
Oregonian, after it has consulted Mr.
Williams, tell us what is tho proper
and equitabla line ? Then we ehall
know how to meet him, and then the
people can, as they finally will, decide
But he says "'the people of the United
States have pronounced their verdict
upyn the question of negro suffrage.
We deny it, and demand the proof,
"But the immortal Lincoln did not ad-
VOCate tho XClus'lOU of the Colored
race from the elective franchise
We reply that Lincoln did take the
ground, in his celebrated debate with
Douglas, that the only true principle
was, to give the black race their free
dom but exclude them from the ballot
, "Would anybody have believed the
Republican who had said, in tho' Jato

? "lion. ii vr. Corbett.
The people of Oregon have just
cause to be croud of the courfco of Sen.
ator Corbett since he has been! honored
with a seat in tho Senate of: tho Uni
ted States. A life-long Republican, a
iruo ineuu, a pericci geoueman, ana a
man of fine abilities, he has achieved a
success in tho Senate that few have at
tained, and all might envy, jit is not
every man that deals in fine rhetoric
and long, windy speeches that makes
the best Senator or wisest statesman.
What the people want . is more work
and less talk. Mr. Corbett has proved
himself to be' tuch a Senator; s
In a quiet way he has been at work
for the State of which we feel so justly
proud. Other public men have receiv
ed more plaudits, bnt we 5 seriously
doubt if any Representative! from thia
StateTin cither branch of our National
Legislature, is more entitled itothegrat-
itudeiof tho people than he is. He is
always at his post of duly, punctual iu
business entrusted to him, and faithful
in its discharge. No charge, that we
know of, has ever been made against
him of having violated his word or sold
out his friends. 1
He may not have made as niany prom
fres as some, but we are certain that he
has been as true to bis pledges as any.
One thing is certain, that he has lost
no friend, but has made many in ad-
pi lion to the great number he had when
he took his seat in the Senate.
T-he Sentinel, under date of Jutj
9th, in its article on railroad and the
Senator, sa) st in speaking of what the
action of the memhera of the Legisla
ture who reside south of the Calipooia
Mountains in the election of Senator;
If , they will tote and act together
on the railroad question, they can elect
some one who will rote ana aso all bis
influence in Congress to iustaio Mr.
Williams' amendment. This should he
donft, whether ifelecttt a Republican or
Democrat. IF they divide, the U est
Side Dompany may elect a I Senator iu
their interest." f
Most certainly, Mr. Sentinel, the
people of the West Side intend to elect
a West Side man to the! Senate, and
one pledged to their interest, or let Mr.
Corhett, who hps proved himself a true
rnan, represent the State for two years
alone. - .'! -'"i I
The Sa legman gays that it Was duM
honorable for the Herald to publish
Mo.'g letter, it being private property.
If Mr. editor of the Statesman cjesires
to defend the dog who wroto that pl?fs
let him take up his pen and couuuence

aspersions and libels ought to he pub;
