It is very true that there is no
longer much utility in discussing
certain questions of the boundaries
between the State and General Gov
ernments, which formed much of the
staple of political argument fifteen
or twenty years ago. The civil war
undoubtedly disposed of manv of
those principles for whose establish
ment our forefathers fought most
stoutly, and the new amendments to
the Constitution, howsoever wrong
ly and irregularly adopted, are fixed
facts, against whose existence argu
ment is idle and contestation futile.
33ut while we recognize," accept, ob
serve and obey tlio laws that have
made inroads upon the powers of the
States, in accordance with the forms
and means provided for changes in
the Constitution, we do not yield one
iota of the rights yet remaining to
tho States, and we have no idea of
abandoning them as long as the ves
tai rignts 01 uncrtv art; burning in
the land. Tho States of the Union
are not now as thev were at the be
ginning of tin's Government. Thev

been seriously circumscribed; their

The States gave up some of their
prerogatives when they made up the
Union, aiul they have vielded others
in a few years past. I5ut they have
not conceded more than the Consti
tution with its amendments shows.
And it is the duty of each and all of
them to one another, to assert and
exercise all the powers remaining
with them, and to resist by all legit
imate means in Congress, and in the
Courts, every eii'ort made, whether
in open usurpation, or under the
e-uise of a pretended national law,
for the national good, to force the
Federal Government into further en
croachments upon their domestic ati
thoritv in their own exclusive mat
ters within them-, -Ives.
It is the height of folly for the ro
lled ing and patriotic men of the
country, who appreciate the import
ance of preserving our system of gov
ernment tis it was originated, as far
as possible, to bo coueu rring in the
revolutionary policy of the reckless
leaders of tlio party in- power, and

and that it is idle to attempt to stand
up against them.

sentiment enough and conservative
power enough in this country to give
some protection to the Constitution,
and to defer, if not defeat, the ulti
mate aims of the usurpers, until the
whole nation aroused by a sense of
the impending dangers shall pro
claim a change of men and measures
at the. poll for tho Presidency. It is
mi possible that centrali.ation can go
much farther than it lias gone, with
out eiituely overthrowing the insti
tutions of our Government. And if

representatives of the people in the
Federal councils, continue to be in

The Dalles Mount ' tineor and the

in relation to the Executive oilice.
T ie MoUut iiiiL'cr has been examining i
peases, while the present Governor's
Private Secretary received 710 jwr

"From this chapter wo learn the
astonishing fact ithat for the two
vears ending September '., 1872, the
Governor, whose salary and compen
sation is definitely and unequivocally
fixed at fifteen hundred dollars per
year, by the article of the Constitu
tion quoted, received in perquisites
for the "performance of duties con
nected with his oilice the aggregate
of s'ly KJ 00. These services are for
inspecting the penitentiary, the sum
of ')S' o!, and for attending to and
listing State land, the sun: of '2 10."
Let us give the editor a little in
formation, which every person cf
common understanding probably
know s already. The Act of our Leg
islature of Oct. 21st, 1K!)1, provides
that the Governor shall appoint the
ers, to be paid to defray the expenses
of the Private Secretary in locating
5 I and listing liSo,000 acres of land.
lhis work required sixty-eight trip
licate lists or two hundred and four
single lists. The Governor has re
ceived nothing on account of locating
all of our public land not a dime.
This attack upon the Executive
serves to bring out the great contrast
between his work and that of his
Republican predecessors. The one
has been successful and economical
the other unsuccessful and expensive.
The present administration has been
one of honor and reform. Its Pe
publiean predecessors was an admin
istration of dishonor and extrava

not received a single dime for fees or

Resolved, That the experience of
Marion Grange?, No. 301, in the Or
der of the Patrons of Husbandry, is
a history of repeated wrongs,- frauds
and insults inllicted upon it by those
claiming and exercising the highest
authority, and of isolate; assumptions
and high-handed usurpations, dating
from its Jirst organization, when it
was swindled by the State deputy,
up to the recent attempted imposture
by the Master himself.
Resolved, That the members of
the Marion Grange, conclude from
experience ami reliection, tnat iarm
ers can combine and perfect an or

Farmers' Associat ion of Illinois, for
instance, more ed'.-ctive than the Or

shall possess fundamental laws more

controls our republican institutions,
and which can be maintained at a
greatly reduced cost; in short, that
farmers can get along much better

Resolved, That Marion Grange

independent of the Iowa State

It is not a constitutional duty of 1 nant ( it is astonishing, ly the way,
tli" States, the day is not so far in

The record from which he copied
this item reads: "expenses in locat

By act of tiie Legislature, of Oct.
15, io)2, the Governor was appointed
"Laud Commissioner for the State
of Oregon," and was authorized ami
required to locate all the public
lands enuring to the State of Oregon,
under several different Acts of Con
gress therein named. This Act au
thorized the -Governor to employ
proper assistance in selecting the
lands, and made provision that such
persons should receive live dollars
per day for such labor, with neces
sary expenses. Under this Act Govs.
Gibbs and Woods employed several
persons to act in this capacity, and
spent nearly 2,000 in etlorts which
finally amounted to but little results,
as far securing tho public lands of
the State was concerned.
The present Governor had to do
most of the work of his predecessors
over again, and has succeeded in
vesting in the State the great body
of public lands to which she is enti
tled. He has employed no person
to assist him except his Private See-

country, instead of having a revenue
tariff upon a dozen articles, is cursed
with a so-called protective tariff upon
two thousand. It breeds smugglers;
j it bribes merchants to make false in-
L voices; it creates and employs a host
j of spies and informers; it corrupts
, clerks to cheat their employers into
violations of custom-house law and
then betray them to custom-house
special agents: it scatters the import

Dr. Dio Lewis writes: "Of the
eight pounds which a man eats and
drinks in a day, it is thought that not
less than Jive pounds leaves his body
through the skin. And of these five
pounds a considerable percentage;
escapes during the night while he is
iu bed. The larger part of this is
water, but in addition there is much
effete and poisonous matter. This
being in great part gaseous in form,
penetrates every part of the bed, and
thus the mattrass, blankets, as well
as sheets, soon become foul and need
purification. The mattrass needs
this quite its much as the sheets. To
allow the sheets to be used without
washing or changing three or six
months, would be regarded as bad
housekeeping. Rut I must insist if
a thin sheet can absorb poisonous ex
cretions of the body so as to make
it unlit for use in a few days, a thick
mattrass which can absorb and con
tain a thousand times as"' much of
these poisonous secretions certainly
needs purifying as often as once in
three months. A sheet can be wash
ed. A mattrass cannot be renovated
in this way. Indeed, there is no oth
er way of cleaning a mattrass but by
steaming or picking it to pieces, and
thus in fragments exposing it to the
direct rays of the sun. As these
processes are scarcely practicable
with any of the ordinary mattrasses.
I am decidedly of the opinion that
the good old-fashioned straw bed. to
be filled every three months, and the
tick washed, is the sweetest and the
healthiest of beds. If in the win
ter season the porousness of the
straw beds maKos it a little uncom
fortable, spread over it a comforter
or two of woolen blankets, which
should be washed as often as everv
two weeks. With this arrangement
if yon wash the bed covering as of
ten as once in two weeks, you wil
have a delightful, healthv bed. Now
if you leave the bed to air, w ith open
windows through the day, and not
make it for the night before evening
you will have added greatlv to th
sweetness of your rest in conse
- -1 1 it t -
nuenco, una to tne tone 01 vonr
health. I heartily wish this good
change could be everywhere intrr
dueod Otdv those who have thus
attended to this important matter
can judge of its influence on the gen
eral health and spirits."
