OF NEW YORK.

The n'ar Spirit.
Strenuous efforts have been made
hy the Administration party to
keep alive a war spirit among the
people. To do this, it lias been
"heartless in design and imsenipu
Glous in execution. To do this, the
South has been tortured, provoked
and outraged. The Federal mili
tary, aided by their half-savage
negro accessories, have scoured the
South and hauled her innocent yeo
manry before a corrupt Federal
judiciary, instituted mainly for the
perversion of justice, the exonera
tion of" guilt and the punishment of
innocence, which, by suborned wit
nesses and packed juries, they were
declared guilt v of crimes of which,
in nine cases out of ten, they were
victims instead of perpetrators. As
the ring-master of a Spanish bull
fight often found it necessary to
goail the bull with thorns to arouse
his anger to the fighting pitch, so
the Administration, deliberately
set to work goading the South
with a variety of persecutions and
insults, which smack strongly of
diabolism, in order to provoke it
into overt acts which would be a
pretext for keeping among them a
large standing army and a power
ful auxiliary in keeping alive the
M ar spirit among all classes. Hut
in defiance of these and all other
efforts on the part of the Adminis
tration to fan the flames of feud
and civ il discord, the drift of public
sentiment throughout the country
lias been for peace. The South has
borne its unprovoked wrongs meek
ly and the North has become exas
perated rather at the Administra
tion than against the South. Its
keen sense of right, has discerned
the real cause of every disquiet m
the land, and has become determin
ed to remove it. The sentiment of
the country is unmistakably and
overwhelmingly for peace. The
electioneering cry for Grant four
years ago, was the enunciation of
his hypocritical phrase, "Let us
The strongest electioneering ciw
against him now is, that he lias
proven false to the true spirit of
that invocation. The tide of the
times is bearing us towards an era
of good feeling. It is all in vain
that the Grant Army of the Repub
lic may preserve its organization
for the sake of keeping alive past
memories. It is all in vain for the
adherents of Grant to allude to the
trophies of his bloody butcheries.
The people are tired of all the
pomp and circumstances of war.
They want to bury all memories of
a bloody internecine war, close up
forever the bloody chasm which
has existed between the North and
South, and strike hands for all
doming time in true brotherly ac
cord. This is why Farmer Greeley
is destined to sweep the land with
a hurricane of triumph. lie was
the first of the North after the war
to extend the hand of friendship to
the most noted and hated "rebel'1
of the South. This good deed is
destined to crown him with a noble
reward. His old white hat, ''the
color of truce," is the oritlamme
which is leading the great masses
of the nation to march forward and
win a triumph over the war spirit,
and a victory for lasting peace.
On the 28th uk., George Francis
Train made a speech, out of his
series to the Presidential chair, at
New Orleans, when some incredu
lous fellow asked Train if he was
an American cititzen, to whom
George F. replied: "I am an Am
erican citizen, descended from a
Pevolutionery sire and by a Conti
nental dam.11 The audience voted
his pedigree to be good.
In 18(53 the Pepublican electoral
ticket in New York was headed by
Marshall O. Poberts and Henry P.
Selden, as Senatorial electors.
Poth these gentlemen are now
working zealously for Greelev and
"Clumsily Devised Fables.'?
The Herald, a few days ago, had
somewhat to say regarding the
public debt of the United States,
which excited the wrath of the
Custom House oflicer of the Ore
ffonicm and he savagely retorted as
On any subject relating to the Administra
lion you have no reputation lor candor and
accuracy to put at hazatd. It is an approved
Democratic habit to rely oa clumsily devised
Now we want to ask our pert
young friend of the Oreyonian,
what else have Democrats to rely
on regarding the public debt of the
United States except "clumsily de
vised fables?" The reports of the
Tieasury officers are all that Dem
ocrats have to relv on, and if we
had tried a whole year to give
them a fitting name, we could not
bettered that of "clumsily devised
fables," which the Oregonian has
bestowed upon them. To come to
the rescue of that pnper, ami to
show fully that its designation of
those reports is correct, we will
now produce three diflerent state
ments made by IJoutwell, Secretary
of the Treasury, one statement
made by Allison, liegister of the
Treasury, and one statement made
by Spinner, Treasurer of the Unit
ed State?, relative to the amount of
the public debt July 1st, 1S70 :
July 1. Del t per Buutwell, 1st
statement 2,477,472,159 20
" Debt per J '.out well, 2d
statement 2X01,733,077 7t
" Debt per lioiltwcll, 3.1
statement 2,480,072,127 81
" Debt ier Allison, Uc-t;is-
terof Treasury 2,38(i,33S,."0t 74
' Debt per Mr. fcpinucr,
Treasurer 2,307,811,013 05
Now, four of these statements
are, of course, "fables," and the
probability is, that they all are.
We must, however, submit that it
is unkind in the Oregonian to twit
Democratic papers of relying on
"clumsily devised fables" while the
Administration officers do not give
them anything else to rely on. It
should by rights abuse the lying
or incompetent officials.
Not Ui:con(tlt:d. The editor
of the Eugene Guard cannot lie
come reconciled and abide the ac
tion of the National Convention.
It is a good thing to have an ex
haulted opinion of one's import
ance. It Incomes egotism, however,
when a man attempts to set up his
judgment as to the course or poli
cy to be pursued by a party against
the expressed and unanimous views
of its representatives. We suppos
ed he would get over his fret after
the first issue and come out and
support the ticket. Put he now
claims that all the Democratic pa
pers in the State are only so-called,
while he is the embodiment of
Democracy. It reminds us of the
story about a certain juryman,
which is about like this: "There
were twelve men on a jury, (that
is just the number of Democratic
papers in the State, so-called, if you
please) and one of the juryman
hung it untill they were discharg
ed. A friend met him the follow
ing day, and said : Well, you
couldn't agree in that case? No,
was the reply, for there were eleven
d d fools on the jury." The
Guard editor is in about that situ
ation, lie refuses his support be
cause he is the only brilliant intel
lect in the State1, and the Democra
cy of the nation should come to his
views, and also, the eleven Demo
cratic papers (so-called), should re
fuse their support because he wishes
it. About as consistent as the jury
At the last commencement of
Daitmouth College, Walt Whit
man recited the Commencement
Poem. A man that writes such
poetry as Whitman does, should
be very careful about inditing son
nets to one of the fair sex, as he
might run the danger of getting
whipped by her big brother for in
sulting her. We subjoin the fol
lowing extract from the, poem as a

mercenary motives, have deserted
the Democracy and so perged it of
the baser elements, ami now it

3Ir. Greeley, a truthful and just
man, no longer characterizes it as
he did when they were a compon

Glad and Anxious. II"rc is an
interesting item for those who still
think it necessary to keep up the
old battle lines between the North
and the South, and p. ho insist that
the late rebels are still rebellious at
heart. Col. J. W. Forney writes
from Louisiana : ' What imnresses
this novel region, are the kindly
relations between whites and
blacks. I have not heard a sylla
ble of secessionism. All the people
are urlad to see Northern men; all
are anxious for immigration and
capital, and really they present in
ducements." Gilmore, at Poston, held a big
musical jubilee from June 17th to
July 4th, and in order to draw a
big house, it is intimated by Past
ern journals, that he hired Presi
dent Grant to attend. At any rate,
the New York Herald asserts that
"the arrival and presence of Grant
was used as a bir advertising card
by the executive committee and
worked very well." If Parnum
would only pay him a few hundred
dollars, he would undoubtedly get
Grant to join his big show ami ex
hibit himself along side of Young
Gerrilla and his Hottentot Queen.
A Southern exchange says that
four years ago Grant's paitisans in
the South promised each of the ne
groes "forty acres of land and a
mule," if they would support Grant.
They are again asking them to vote
for CI rant, and when the darkies
inquire about the land and the
mules, they are told that the d d
Democrats stole ail the survevs of
the hind so that they couldn't ret
the forty acres, and own ail the
railroads so that they can't bring
them the mules.

our friends the best of success.

Daniel IV. Voorliees lie-nominated

The Democratic Convention of the Cth

D. W. Yoorbees for Congress by acclama

ooruees maue "o '
! rwtlirninr thank, lor the nora-
ination he expressed Ibo warmest gratifi
cation that those who knew him best had
refused lo listen lo what h;-.d been said to
nis disadvantage, but had instead de
manded that he should remain in their
service, though they knew tbat he no lon
ger sought public position. He then re
ferred to - the position he had essoined
with regard to the nomination of Greeley
by the Democrats, and said he had felt
convinced ihat the pre.-ent Administration
had so di-guied the country that an easy
opportunity would be pre.-ented this year
for the Democratic Party, by presenting
one of its ablest and purest men for the
Presidency, to regain con'rol of the gov
ernment ; that he had given honest Re
publicans the same credit he now gave to
Democ-ais. in believing that they would
sufficiently r'ne above party to vote
against a corrupt Administration, regard
less of the company in which they did so.
He siill believed tlds. and so believiutr
had exercised his right as a member of
i lie Democratic Party in urguig this view
upon- the Natiotiii' Democratic Convention,
lie had no apologies to make for having
done so ; would do so again under sua
ilar circumstances. In opposing the nmn
ination ol Greeley he had acted on thi
principle, and no one need expect, him
now nor hereafter to retract a word he
had spoken or w itten on the subject.
What he had said was intended lo influ
ence the Ualiimore Convention. It hud
not done so and be was sorry for it. It
lie could at this point abandon public sta-"
non consistently with his obturations to
Ids pat ty, his tii'-mls. a:id his duties as a
citizen. the path before him would be easy,
but the acti' n of the Convention to-day
impel. ed him lo accept the nominu'iori
and make osi" more campaign. 11- re

livered a long and elaborate speech to
night at the Liberal Republican meeting
held at the Temple. In reference to hU

not his choice as a candidate. Nothing
attached him to Ins fortunes but a belief
in his honesty, his great ability, and Lia
opportunity to do what he declared

would lead them into the Democratic
party, for he did not go there himself, and
unless he mistook the signs of ihe titueg
there would be uo Democratic camp t0 rj
to. In regard to the issue or the cam
paign, he urged the necessity of a policy
of reconciliation toward the South which
should restore true union to the State
and ihe great need of civii service reform.
Iu ihe latter connection he read a letter
from himself to Horace Greeley asking
an expression of his views on ihe sube
of civil service reform, with Greeley'
renly. The latler says that in his o pi a
ion the matter should commence by limn
ing the President to one term, making
him independent of politicians in placing
him beyond their reach, and placing him
in a position where he will need no subsi
dized support and no hired organs; whera
he can and naturally wiil selec ofiieeig
and counselors from those best qualified
for the positions.
