The Kesult.
The election for Congressman last
Monday passed off very quietly and
the result so far we can learn is
entirely satisfactory to all concerned.
The canvass has been conducted, with
out excitement. Xesrnith having two
days the start was never overtaken
by his opponent who on the start
got sand in his eyes. At the Repub
lican Convention held in All any on
the 11th ult., by the platform adopt
ed andlthe nomination made, many
of the best Republicans were irre
sistibly invited Cto stop away from
the polls of which invitation they
pjadly availed themselves ar.d from
all appearances enjoyed it hugely;
' 'Rejoice with those that rejoice and
weep with those that weep."
The election with one exception
Tvas"condueted fairly. That excep
tion is the city of Portland; wo hope
from the recommendation of the Or
ejiuim, found in another column
that the parties guilty of this indis
cretion, not "early indiscretions"
will 1x3 promjtly dealt with and that
the whole of the affairs connected
with the election will be disposed of
in such a manner as to afford no op
portunity for fault finding. Results
brought about by calm reflection are
likely to bedurable and of great bent-tit
to the whole0 people. The won
derful potency cf silence is exempli
fied iu the case of 11 irum Smith, the
Republican candidate for Congress
who made no boisterous harangue
during the entire canvass. It really
seems that the condition of things is
The exception to the rule of'fair
ness in conducting the election which
occurred in Portland may perhaps
be owing to the fact that at times
during the canvas the editors of the
Portland llullitin became irate; men
are liable to err and we think the
said editors should be excused. One
thing they publis!a?d we cannot un
derstand : that is Col. Nesmith's let
ter reeonjTCiu ndiTjg the suppression I
- -ix av- 1
, of Democratic newspapers. We re-1
member that at the time the letter
was written one o the editors was a
Democrat condemning the measure.
The other a Republican approving
itV we do not know which ti admire
most the candor of the former in ad
mitting that he was in the v.rong, or
the frankness of the latter iu admit-
ting the measure was wrong.
On the evening after the election
cwhen n(s had been received show
ing who had bceii elected, v.e called
at the post office building and found
that the office had been closed at au
early hour; anotliorO good efi'ect pro
duced by the election' inducing reg
ular habits conducive to health and
happiness. 'Karly to bed tind early
to rise makes a man health;', wealthy
and wise.'
The news of the election comes in
tardily but sufficient is known to
warrant the belief that this county
has gien about 10 majority for
INor-mith and that the State has gone
Democratic by more than 2,000. The
full strength of neither party has
been given in this election. This re
sult may be accounted for in another
wav if we are only indulged in mak
ing a comparison and we certainly
do not intend thereby any disrespect
to any body. Allow us to call the
canvass a, race and the candidates
racers; well then Ncsmith run with
out a rider and w ent bucking and
spiling alP over the State being
scarcely bridlevvise. The rider for
the other party tried to mount sev
eral noble racers but they blood from
under; at leugth ho succeeded in
jnouuting Hi but owing to the bur
den thchoble courser broke down
in the mud flats on Long Tom.
In Col. Xesmith, this State has an
able energetic and efficient represent
ative, who will industriously and
promptly clook after the interests of
Oregon at the X at i anal Capitol. "We
are awrre that some Democrats w ill
find fault with this notice of the elec
tion because there is no vinegar in
it, yet when we consider the result
of the calm philosophy that has char
acterized the canvass we can but ad
mire and cherish it hoping that sim
ilar resutls will follow in the future.
The returns from Penn
are very jueagre, but we have the en
couraging news that tiie Democrats
have carried eight counties that have
heretofore given Republican major
ities. Iowa sends us greetings that
a majority of the counties have been
carried against the Radicals; the
Democrats made us nominations in

Political Purification.
Unmistakable evidence exists of a
determination on the part of the peo
ple" of the United States to effect a
reform in the administration of gov
ernment National State and munici
pal. The gigantic monopolies that
have grown up iu the railroad, man-
ufacturing and banking system in '
vogue in this country are the chief :
agencies employed in the corruption '
so rife in the land. These monopo- j
lies are entrenched behind corporate j
rights and are setking to fortify
themselves still more strongly by
placing our judicial, legislative and
executive officers under obligation to
them.thereby paving the way for the
extension of other exclusive privi
leges and evading the application and
execution of those laws designed for
the' protection of individual rights
without which government is a fail
ure. It is a custom with the railroad
companies to furnish free passes
over their lines to Judges and Leg
islators. If this is done as a mark
of courtesy as we suppose in some
very rare and exceptional cases may
be, then there is no objection; but
when the motive is what we think it
is, in a large majority of cases, then
we object alike, to the giving and
receiving of these free pusses. The
iusjured writer says 44 neither take a
gift, for a gift doth blind the eyes of
the wise." Our officers should be,
as far as possible, free and untram
melled in the discharge of their offi
cial duties. A hint to the wise is
sufficient. More anon.

The Government Commissioner of
Agriculture, Hon. F. "Watts, thus
reports for Oregon:
Af-jiles. Rut one State, Oregon,
reports an average crop of apples.
The condition of the crop ranges
from 28 in Rhode Island to 102 in
Oregon. Of the New England
States the highest average, 61, is
presented by S'ermout. The Middle
States range from 75 in New York
to DO in Pennsylvania; the South At
lantic coast States from -40 in Soutu
Carolina to b4
States from 7
T . . ,,
in Virginia; the Gulf
1 in Texas to &8 iu
Louisiana; the interior Southern
States from 30 in Tennessee to b0 iu
Arkansas; the States north of the
Ohio from 40 in Illinois to 78 in
Michigan; the States west of the
Mississippi, from 07 in Kansas to 87 in
Nebraska; California reaches SS.
Many counties, in different parts of
the country report au entire failure
of the crop.
I' cut hex. This crop is, if possible
in a worse condition than the apples,
Here, again, Oregon is the only
State, in which an average crop is re
ported. The State averages range
from IS in South Carolina, to 122 in
Oregon; in the former 11 counties,
and in the latter six counties re
ported. Maine, Vermont, "Wiscon
sin, Minnesota, Iov.aand Missonri,
make no reports from any of their
counties, the crop being too incon
siderable to attract attention. Two
counties in New Hampshire average
02, 2 in Rhode Island 87, and R in
California, bo. Of the remaining
States only 11 are above f0, viz:
Connecticut, 00; Delaware, (1 coun

This is an outrage on the people
of Oregon. Our citizens have been
murdered by savages, and we have
a r g it to expect that they will
receive the same punisnment that
white men would for the same crime.
We hope for the sako of decency and
common sense that these murderers
will yet be turned over to the proper
authorities for trial. Eugene Jour

We very rc.ectfully ask the Jour
nal if this is the first outrage of the
present Administration? The four

LIditorlal Correspondence.
Speingfield Corkers, .
.Wis. Oct. 3, 1873.
Leaving Baltimore on the New
York train, we reached that, city on
the following morning without any
n.rnnpi wnrthv of note. As we
anticipated, we found the metropolis
of the nation a busy, bustling city,
Remaining only two days in the city,
we were unable to note any of its
particular attractions. The mor.ey
panic was the great theme of convcr-
sation and "Wall street was a scene
that we could hardly describe The
street was literally crammed with
people, and it was almost impossible
to get passage w ay through it. The
btock exchanges were closed, which
had tendency to quiet public fears,
and it was believed that the worst of
the financial crisis was over. But it
is our opinion, that the extraordina
ry exertions of the mercantile com
munity to maintain their credit has
only been accomplished at great sac
rifice, and that eventually when the
demand3 on the stock gamblers must
be met, a crisis more disastrous will
come. This thing may be put off for
a time, but the reckless extravagance
and demoralized financial currency,
must eventually come to an end.
Supposing that you. have already
received later news than we have on
this subject, we will leave New York
and her troubles for our trip to Chi
cago. On the evening of Sept. 23d, we
left New York for Chicago by way of
the Niagara Falls and over the sus
pension bridge. Nothing worthy of
note occurred on our way, with the
exception that on the following even
ing, after we had had no dinner, we
were also deprived of ge tting supper,
and had to fast for twenty -four hours.
"We would advise our friends travel
ing on this route to either take their
board with them, or go by way of
the Pennsylvania Central, which is
not only the fastest, but has good
eating stations on the entire route.
We failed to reach Chicago in time
to make the connections by this route
for the morning trains which leave
that place, hence many were f jrced
to lay oer until the following day.
While the Niagara Falls are an at
traction to the traveler, the route
leading to them has more objections
than the attractions are worth. Wc
would advise our friends never to r
ly on making through connections
on it, or getting anything to eat, and
especially at a town called London,
in Canada. We got enough of this
j route, and should we ever have oc-
casion to go to New-
try some other line.
Wo remained in Chicago until the
evening of the tth. when we took
the irain for Madison, Wisconsin,
where we arrived on the following
morning at 4:30. This was the first
time we had Feen the place of our
early boyhood for near twenty-live
years, and were greatly pleased to
note the improvements made during
that time. The old log and frame
houses which then constituted the
little village, have disappeared, ar.d
in their stead, we now find beautiful
brick structures in their places. The
town is located on one of the most
beautiful sites in the Union, being
on an elevated spot, surrounded al
most entirely with what are termed
the Four Rakes. We still found a
few old landmarks which we could
recognize, and their sight brought
us back to the days of our childhood.
We only found one man who It ft
with us in 1849 for California, and
that was our old friend Iiassdall.
It was a great pleasure to meet him
and talk over the adventures of our
trip "cross the plains" and of old
friends who are now numbered
among the departed. On the follow
ing day we left Madison for this
place, to meet our relatives, and
hoped to see. once more our aged
father; but we were disappointed in
this expectation, and found on reach
ing here that he had died on the fJth
of September, at the advanced age of
We find quite a number of towns
have grown up since we left here,
and the country has been cleared
and brought irto cultivation. Where
once stood a forest of oak trees, now
are tine cleared farms, which must
have cost tho farmers much hard
work and great expense. The land
here is no such soil as we have in
Oregon, and when a farmer raises
from 15 to 20 bushels wheat per acre
on well cultivated ground, he con
siders, himself in good fortune. We
have thousands of acres of land in
the most thickly timbered portions
of our State which are no harder to
clear than have been made into farms
here, and after they would be clear
ed would produce thirty to fifty
bushels per acre. Corn grows well
here, and if it was worth anything in
the market, would probably be the
most profitable crop the farmer
could raise. Hut he cannot raise it
for 15 to 20 cents per bushel and
that is what he generally gets for it.
Wheat is worth here 80 cents in cur
rency, while we notice it is worth SI
in Oregon. The freight charges on
railroads have latelv been i

they all work henl and are of a
industrious class. W e learn man .
last three years' has been very severe
on them on account of dry. weather,
and an almost complete failure in
crops, they hardly realizing sufficient
of their crops to pav expenses. This
year they have been somewhat more ,
fortunate, and consider that tney
have good caops. We have inquired
as to what they regard good crops,
and we learned that the highest is
twenty-four bushels to the acre, and
as low down as twelve. While the
first figures would be regarded as
fair in Oregon, we hardly suppose
the latter figures would justify them
in cutting it at all. And this is the
product of farms after they have
been manured end thoroughly culti
vated. We think the Oregon farm
ers ought to be satisfied with their
condition, and we feel assured if
they could only see what labor these
people put upon their farms and how
poorly they are paid for it, they
would be contented with their situa
tion. We shall have something to
say on this and other subjects after
we return. Cold weather has al
ready commenced here. For the
past three nights we have had it cold
enough to freeze, and to-day we have
a cold rain. We can stand the rain
very well, being used to it, but cold
is something out of our line, and we
prefer to be excused from experien
cing even one of Wisconsin's mildest
winters. A country where it freezes
all the year round has no charms for
an Oregonian. We have always re
garded Oregon as the garden -of our
first parents, and now we are satisfi
ed that the Willamette Valley is the
identical spot.
Politics are beginning to liven up
a little in this State. Roth parties
have held their conventions, ar.d
placed full tickets in the field. The
iladicals have noinitated an adminis
tration or Senator Carpenter ticket,
in favor of the back-pa ystcai and the
railroad corporations, while the
Democrats have joined with th Lib-
erals and Reformers in making up a
l ' .1. i. . . a- ? a - -
ticket irrespective of .t politic!
afliliations. It is regarded us a
strong ticket, and will be heaieily
snpported by all classes opjmf-ed to
monopolies and true to the interests
of the farmers. The candidate for
Governor on the Democratic ticket
is a farmer hinisi If, and has resided
in this part of the State for thirty
years, is a man of undoubted ability
aud integrity. While the Radical.-;
have heretofore carried the St.te by
from twenty to twenty-live thousand
majority, it is bvlie-vc-d by tu.uy thut
the Democratic-Reform ticket will
be electud thb fall. .Wisconsin; iihd

occasion for renewed thanksgiving
and acknowledgment to the Al

unnumbered mercies which he has
