TllliOLD FEKCE RAIL,.
It litis, anil rota by the roadside,
Anions tbe0wilhericg weeds;
Tbf-blackberry vines inn over it,
And the thistles drop their seeds.
Lelow tbe Miami murmurs;
He flows as he always flowed;
And the people, eastward and westward.
Travel the National Road.
At times a maiden's glances
Gild it with tents of dawn,
But the schoolboy snorts with Lis nostrils,
. Kicks it, and hastens on.
Above it the pioneer's chimney,
Lonely and rickety, leans;
lleside it the pioneer's garden
qIs a wildering growth of greeu.3.
It was split by the stalwart settler,
One of the ancient r;co,
And the hands of his tow-haired children
Lilted it into its place.
Years after the gawky lover
O Sat on it. dangling his heels,
While his girl forgot her milking.
And the pen, with its hungry squeals.
Ah. the rail has its own romances.
The scenes and changes of years:
1 pause whenever I see it.
And drop on it several tears.

the assertion of Senator Conkling,
that President Gf&nt did not ar
rive at Washington until about
four hours alter the death of Sec
retary Pawlins. lie was tele
graphed for in ample season to re
turn. I was told in "Washington
on the day of the funeral of Secre
rtarv Kaw lins, bv a Cabinet officer,
that the President's explanation of
-bis delay was that the railway
company Vanderbilt's, I believe,
if I remember rightly refused to
furnish liim a special train, and
that the railway authorities denied
that he had made application to
them for a special train. Natural
ly, I inquired the probable reason
for his failure to reach Washington.
"1 was told that it was we'll under
stood that Rawlins was a strong
friend of the Cuban movement for
liberty, and that Grant feared the
Secretary might exact from him
a promise to recognize the Cubans
as possessing belligerent rights.
"With regard to the liawlins i'uiul,
I can say a word more than you
say. As to my statement it is per
haps sufiicient for me to mention j
that I was invested with power of j
attorney by Airs. Kawbns Po look
after her a Hairs, and I was conse
quently well acquainted with the
facts in the case. 1 do not know,
except xipon Goulds testimony,
who paid the & 1,000 which G-aut

and that General Jbitterfield was i
made receiver of the fund. 1 went j
to New York several times alter j
that infamous day,in tlie attempt !
to learn something of the whore- j
ibouts of the fund, but accomplish
ed nothing, for jbitterlield was

From the subscribers, Rufus Hatch,
Fisk, Hatch & Co., W. K. Venni

that the subscriptions had been
paid to the receiver. Returning
to my home, and that of 31rs.
Rawlins, at Danburv, Conn., at
her request I wrote several letters i

How or by whom the fund was j

this indebtedness: A party of mili

The Locks at Oregon City,
From the Oregonian.
We publish the following letter as giving
a good description of the work which has
been done oa the Locks and Dam at
Oukcox City. Sent. 24. 1872.
' To the Editor ok Thk Oi:k;omax:
tilr: Having to-day made a visit to
the Canal and Locks being constructed
opposite this city, aud being both surpris
ed and interested in a close inspection of
the same irom end to end, we venture to
place at your disposal the result. qt our
observations. Mr. J. A'. Lesourd very
kindly conducted us over the Works and
lo him we are indebted for that informa
tion we may be able to give the public
through your valuable columns. Com
mencing at the inlet to the Canal above
the FaKs. we perceive a well defined en
trance on the west tide of the river, about
ICO feet in width. Entered; on one side
the natural bank forms a lofty, solid stone
wall; on the other, a crib is in course of
construction, which, for strength and solid
ity, one would think capable of standing
the wear and tear of ages. It is con
structed of solid timbers 12x12. Ihe
Lents are 12x11. feet from center to
center, and only 5 feet apart. Holes have
been punched out of the solid rock be
neath, so that every post rests on a solid,
immovable foundation, and every bent is
strengthened bv a i-inch iron rod, secure
ly boUed and sealed. It is apparently, as
strong as iron and wood can make it.
The can tl then widens out into a basin
of an irregular shape, with an area of six
or seven acres, the upper side a natural
stone wall as Indole, and the river side ,
a crib 20 feet wide resting on a stone wall
18 feel deep to give it solid Inundation and
to resist the pressure of extreme high wa
ter and an accumulation of logs and drift
wood. In this crib also. evtry post is
sunk into a stone loundation. The inside
bottom planKing is laid in Cement and
masonry. The crib extends from the in
let to the guard lock: is i: feet above the
grade o( the canal and 1.25D feet in length.
We took occasion to notice in connection
with this crib, that the timber appeared
to be o! the best quality. While we were
looking on, we were inadvertently over
heard one of the foremen finding fault,
and finally rejecting as too ''sappy."
some heavy timbers from the raft just ar
rived, which, to our inexperienced eye.
appeared perfectly sound. We mention
this that great care must have been exer
cised, on selecting and using good material
only. There are about lot) men working
at the inlet and crib, and .Mr. L. asserts
I that he could complete that portion of the
! work abuve the guard-lock and have the
water in the canal in two weeks, it neces
sary. Arriving at the guard lock, we find
j lwi rmisidv timber gates, each weighing
! 4 0,000 pounds, fitted as they are with four
j cat iron wickets, each, aud all the m i-
chinery necessary for their perfect work
ing, ir.ese gates are already swung on
the posts fastened to the Imllow-quoisn o!
the great walls of the guard lock. The
upper side of this Lock is a natural stone
wall from 100 to 120 feet perpendicular.
The lower wall, built by the Company is
I venture to say, as solid a specimen of
stone masonry as there is on the Pacific
coast. It is 2 SO feet in length, 10 feet
thick at the base, 5 feet on top, and 1(
feet high. The masonry work is all lirst
class, the cement of the best quality; to
prove which, Mr. Lesourd endeavored,
with a hammer, to drive an SI nail between
two stones, but failed. On arriving at
the end of the guard lock we enter another
basin which widens out to 75 or 80 feet
in the center, and is cribbed on the lower
side by a crib constructed as before de
scribed, but having for foundation a stone
wall from 0 to 12 feet deep, res'ing on
the solid rock, thus I'lTectitiiHy preventing
any possible escape of water. This crib
is 1.200 feet long. U feet high and y feet
at the base. This basin is a very neces
sary adjunct to the Canal and Locks, as
in it steamboats can p;ts.s each other, or in
case of accident to any boat in tran-.it.
;t could be moored here without impeding
or obstructing the 'passage of another.
At, the end of this basin we come to the
end of Ihe fih lock. This, in going down
stream is the lirst of four locks, the last of
which passes the boats out on a level with
the river below the Falls. The gates to
these locks are heavier than those of the
guard lock. Each lock is -JO feet clear,
in width, and 210 feet in length, with 10
feet lilt to each. The first 1

I completed that it will be ready for the
! gates in about two weeks, 'the second
lock lias a similar wall of twenty-six feet
also blasted out. Tim excavation is com
plete, and the masons are laying the hol
low quoins for the gates. The third rising,
as all do. ten feet, has not required so
much of Ihe giant powder. Three or four
d ivs more will finish the excavation in
this. This lock will be enclosed in solh
stone walls, which are being rapidlv push
ed to completion. The gc.tes to each lock
are all framed, ready to be put together
and swung as Suoa as the hollow quoins
We have endeavored imperfectly we
fear to give your readers an idea if the
woik that h.is been done. To accomplish
it has re
pured thirteen large derricks to
; rocks as blasted and blocks of
the masons. About four miles
of tramways have been laid, along which
seven double teams are constantly haul
ing car loads of rock. Four steam engines
ate at work night and day raising from
four to five hnnhred gallons ol water per
minute forty-one feef out of the deep cut.

The Baltimore Platform.
Following is the platform adopted by
the Democratic Convention at Baltimore
on the Dili of July. 1S72:
1. o recognize tuc equality ot men be- (
fore the law and hold that it is the duty of
the government, in its dealings with the j
people, to mete out equal and exact justice
to all, of whatever nativity, race, color or
persuasion, religious or political.
2. "We pledge ouraelvej to maintain the
law, the union of these states, emancipation
and enfranchisement, and to oppo-e any re
opening of the questions set! led by the
Thirteenth Fourteenth aud Fifteenth amend
ments to the constitution.
3. We demand the immediate and abso
lute removal of all disabilities imposed on
account of the rebellion, which was finally
subdued seven years ago, beliering that
universal amnesty will result in complete
pacification iu all sections of the ountry.
4. Ljcal self-government with impartial
suffrage will guard the rights of ail citizens
more securely than any central z.'d power.
The public welfare demands the supremacy
of the civil over the military authority, and
freedom of person under the protection of
the l:i'bt't cvrpH.-. We demand for the in
dividual the large.-t liberty e.msi-tent with
public order, for the state self-government,
and for the nation t return to the methods
of peace and the constitutional limitations
r. The civil service of the government
has become a mere instrument of p-wtis m
tyranny and n-rsona! ambition and uno'-ject
of .seiiish greed. It is si scandal and re
pro ich upon f ree institutions, and breeds a
demoralization dangerous to the perpetuity
of a republican government.
ti. We thei efore regard a thorough ref'oi in
of the civil service as one ot the most press
ing necessities of 1 tie hour; that honesty,
capacity and fidelity constitute the only valid
claims to public employment; that the o Slices
of g 'verniuent cease to be a matter ot ar
bitrary favoritism and pa' ronage, a nd that
public station will become again the po-t of
honor. To this end it is i m per il i vely re
quired that no president, shall be a candidate
lor re-i b-etion.
7. Wo demand a system of federal taxa- I
tiou which shall not uuiieee.-sai it y inlerlere I
with the industry of the pe p!e, and which
shall provide the means necessary to pay the j
expenses of the government, economically !
the. int ei est on the puhl e dent , and a mnrler- j
ate annual reduction of the principal thereof; j
-oid recognizing, that, there are iu our ni.dst j
honest tint ii iY c neilabie di'lerences of o;in
ion with regard t the respective system of
protection and tree t 'ade, we ren.dl the dis
cossion of the subject to the pcplc iu their
congressional districts, an I t he d "vision of
congress thereon, wholly free of executive
interfer. nee or dictation.
8. The public credit liiu-t be sa -rclly j
luaiutaincd, and we denounce repudiation i.i j
every form and gidse. i
