Koiae journals of lioeral tendencies
and indepeiulent professions cry out
for :i new party organization, to take
the place of the Democracy, preteiul

friend's of uncertain persuasion, those
journals which are neither fish nor
liesh, yet who presume to counsel a
great, healthy, masculine, l!es'h and
blood party to melt, thaw, ami re
solve itself into dew, should know
that their gratuitous counsel is not
baed upon facts. They assert that
the Democratic iartv is without in

mass of the people. The causes as
signed for this alleged loss of popu
Vii'ityaro the cotuM' uf the party

of the old Republican loaders, was
willing, nay anxious, to ae
regular Democratic nomination lor
President. The glowing coals of
Lliose then burning but now defunct
controversies had not gathered cind
ers to cover them; and yet a Republi
can statesman who stood high in
public contideiice was ready to iden
tify himself with the Democratic or
ganization and bear its banner to
victory. There could not be a more
solid or a more elocpieut refutation
of the pretence that the Demoeoatie
party sinned away its day of grace
by its course during; and immediatly
after the war. When the time came
round for the next Residential elec
tion, there was not merely one but
several old and trusty RtpubJican
statesman who were willing to com
mit their political fortunes and their
reputation to an association with tips
odious, moribund Democratic party.
Mr. G ret ley did accept, and half a
do.en other distinguished Republi

OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 25, IS73.
The ( hicfof the Salary Crabliers.
It is pleasant to observe the re
markable unanimity with which the
leading Radical orpins denounce the
salary-steal and the salary -stealers.
They are never weary of pouring out
the Vials of virtuous wrath upon the
j Leads of those who voted tor the in
! iquitous bill, upon the heads of
I those who dodged the vole, and upon
i the heads of those who took the
j money and did not give it back, or
gave it back private! v instead of pub
licly. The aforesaid organs publish
lists where the names of t acn salary
stoaler, vote-dodger and salary
keeper are printed in indignant italics
and every now and then v.e have
brief oditot-ials inquiring" why Lion.
Mr. Smith is not heard from, or what
lias become of the lion. Mr. Jones,

we do not want to discourage our
Radio.; 1 friends in their sudden
spasm of well doing; but. on the con
trary, v.e trust they may continue to
hammer heavily at the tiuancial iniq
uity and so gather courage after a
while to combat other foims of
wickedness which have not as yet
attracted their- attention. Rut we
must be permitted to suggest that
this fierce opposition to the salary
grab would have more pith and point
if directed at the chief grabber,
and not altogether at the subordi
nates. Mr. (h'.rtield.ot Ohio. Iut the

We entirely concur with the J'i i

which is now sapping the; very

dooming then for a time to sit in
the shadow of a disastrous civil

sIol. an should instinctively rise to
the lips of every freeman in Louisi

our intelligent cotempovary that the
order of emotions is not always the
order of battle. With the firing em

North for an immediate attack by
the forces of the Federal Govern

ami especially on tin; City of Chnrles-
cry ef a natural rose ntmeut, but Gen.
Sce tt rt pelh d it at the time with the
quiet remark that such cries were
the impulses of a very had strategy
for the purposes of war. When Tou
lon was to bo reduced during the
earlier wars of the French revolution
it will be remembered that the key
of the position was found by tiie
veiling Napoleon iu a fort placed at
the1 extremity ef the promonterv
whicli shuts in the lesser harbor eif
that e-ity, insomuch that the strategic
question "Where is Toulon V re
quired to be settled as th" indispens
able condition of jil 1 sound military
operations for the conquest of the
place, and. considered with reference
to practical purposes, this was cer
tainly a question vastly more impor
tant than a catalogue of the probable
consequences that would ensue from
not getting Toulon at all.
As tne Dritish licet made haste to
evacuate Toulon as soon as the "Lit
tle Gibraltar" of Fort Eguillette had
fallen into the hands of" the besieg
ing forces, so we believe that Radi
calism would lie dislodged from the
high places of its power at Washing
ton and throughout the land if the
"Gibraltar" of its Strength in the
present corrupting tariff were wrest
ed from the hands of the monopolists
who now use their monev jiowor to
consolidate and support the politi
cal e.rganization which upholds the
Administration fi President Grant.
