Now that the good old custom of
observing annually a Jay of thanks
giving has become national, the Gov
ernors of the several States fix upon
the lay recommended by the Presi
dent for the" observance, nod so we
escape the annoyance of conflicting
arrangements in different parts of the
Union. In accordance with the es
tablished enstom. the President issu
ed bis proclamation recommending
that Thursday, November 2"3th, be
the day appointed for observance,
and our Governor, of coarse, united
in fixing upon the same day.
Iu so far as this earth's yield is
concerned, we, in Oregon, have had
this year abundant cause to give
thanks. Independent of onr own
State, however, the reports of the
Bureau of Statistics show that this
year's harvest in almost every par
ticular, has been an exceptionally
good one, aud it was to g:ve thanks
for this earth's abundance tli3.t the
custom of observing a day iu this
way was instituted; but we have- had
other things to bo grateful for besides
a rich harvest. We might" have
airly rejoiced, and as a religions
people we might have properly ren
dered thanks, that we escaped a great
national dishonor; that wo escaped
the great sin of national dishonesty.
Prayers of gratitude on this day were
sent up to the foot-stool of God from
all parts of ,our wide spreading coun
ty. In onr own city services were held
at St. Paul's Church in the morning
and at the Methodist Church in the
-evening, and the full attendance at
each, si rowed the thorough apprecia
tion by our peojdo of the day aud
its import. q

O The Currency truest Ion.
Mr. Pennoyev, in tho Albany Dem
vcra(, says that in order to return to
specie payment, an immense con
traction must take place, which
would result in prices tumbling.
What if it would! Is not this & desid
eratum? Do wo not want cheap
homes, bread and clothing? Is this
not tho highest aim of political econ
omists? However, while our banks
are filled to repletion with idle cur
reney, we have no present fears from
contraction. Mr. 1 ennoyer aeco-'uts
for theso well filled vaults by saying
that "our business men, with busi
ness dwarfing, will not call it into
oso." Exactly; but is this not strange
argument against contraction ? It
Bcems to us a tacit admission that
paper money unsettles the market,
and that our business men have more
money than they know what to do
with, or than they dare use on ac
count of the insecurity of speculation
an the time of a fluctuating currency.
To give us more paper money would
only depreciate that which is now
lying idle;a-what costs a dollar now
would cost, in proportion to the
increase, as much more then.
An Opportunity. Col. Forney
writes from London that "two Eng
lish capitalist?, noted for their com
mercial shrewdness and energy, Mr.'
John Cross. M. P., and Mr. N. V.
Sqnarey, have taken charge of a
scheme to send annual excursions of
English capitalists to the Un&ed
States to investigate investments."
Can t some of onr pronlinent citi
zens set before these gentlemen, in a
brief, clear style, tho many advan
tages of Oregon City as a maufactnr
ing center? It would' be but little
labor lost even should no attention
bo paid to the communication, while
on the other hand it might possibly
redound considerably to oar advan
tage. Chief-Justice Waite appears again

The sad news of Vice President
Wilson's death reached us by tele
gram od Monday afternoon. It is not
the Republican rartv which has lost i
one of its giants, or the cause of hu- ;
manity one oi us stauneuesi sup
porters, but the nation at large
which has been robbed of one of its
grandest representative. Born of
poor parents in Farmington, N. H.f
he was early apprenticed to a farmer.
Later in life he became a shoemaker,
lint like another EliLu Bnrritt, "his
mind and ambition were far beyond
the bellows and anvil," and ho came
before the people of Massachusetts
as an aspirant for the Assembly.
From this time he devoted his whole
life to the public weal. He was
several times elected to the Massa
chusetts Assembly, and three or four
times to the Senate of that State. In
1855 ho succeeded Edward Everett
iu the United States Senate. Everett,
a man of consummate skill and ex
quisite polish, yet unsubstantial,
even visionary, could have been suc
ceeded by no better man to show the
versatility of New England brain.
Wilson, essentially a self made man,
schooled in adversity, accustomed to
the buffets of hard experience, was
plain, practical and powerful. One
of the first champions of the anti
slavo party, he fought the battle to
the bitter end; but when the smoke
of battle had cleared away, hi3 voice
was loudest for peace, his hand
among the first to reach across "the
bloody chasm." After going a second
time to the Senate, in 1872 he was
elected to tho Vice Presidency.
During tho time he was in this office
he was more or less continually iu
feeble health; but no charitable ob
ject or philanthropic undertaking,
even in his weakest moments, called
for his purse, pen or voise without
response. At one time editor of the
Boston Daily Jiejntblican, his well
stored brain found a wido channel
for the dissemination of his elevated
and noble principles. His work on
tho "Rise and Fall of the Slave
Power in America" will be cherished
by posterity as one of the master
pieces of the nation.
As we said before he belongs to
no party, to no section he belongs
to America! In all his simplicity
and breadth of mind, in all his ripe
judgment and honorable dealings, in
all his kindheartedness and practical
life he belongs to America! No
one section, no one party shall mourn
the loss of this "great good man,"
the loss is national. Henry Wilson
belongs to us all,rand as common
property we minglo our tears with
our brethren in far off New England.

Moody and Sankey.
The London press was about
equally divided in its opinion of the
American revivalists and the fruit of
their labors. Some lew journals
looked upon the work of these mis- J
sionaries as an unwholesome excite
ment, tending rather towards -religions
insanity than the true love
and fear of God; whilst on the other
hand, papers were not wanting to
support Moody and Sankey hold
ing that the conversions made by
them are not necessarily short-lived,
and that any means should be adopt
ed which will show a sinner the error
of his ways. In our own country
a country ever ready to detect the
charlatan and brand him as such
we" are pleased to find that the re
vivalists are every day receiving the
highest encomiums of the press, and
the heartiest co-operation of the pub
lic. More practical, and less reveren
tial perhaps, than our English cousins,
it is no small compliment that these
gentlemen are received by our peo
ple with genuine religious fervor,
and many pleasurable expressions.
If all their labors result in only one
convert, they have done a good
work. These gentlemen are now in
Philadelphia conducting the largest
revival that has ever beeu held in
this country. To the New York
Tribune we are indebted for the fol
lowing description of Moody and
Sankey 's work iu Brooklyn:
"The demonstration on Sunday
in Brooklyn wa3 expected to bo
noticeable and earnest, but in its
magnitude it has proved a surprise.
The reputation won by Moody and
Saukey abroad specially adapted
them to lead in a general revival,
and led all to anticipate a great fol
lowing to hear them, but that three
or four times the numbers in at
tendance would have to be turned
away was wholly unexpected. And
instead of an effort being required to
awaken interest and arouse dormant
feelings, it was soon discovered that
the audience was as intensely
earnest and sympathetic as tho lead
"Some of the indications of this
spirit, as betrayed at Sunday's meet
ings, arc curious. The morning ser
vices were begun' at half-past eight
o'clock. Before six iu the morning
the crowd began to gather at tho
doors; at eight o'clock over five
thousand persons were seated in the
buildiug, and three thousand or
more had been turned away for lack
of standing room. In the afternoon
twelve possibly twenty thousand
were unable to gain admittance;
meetings had to bo organized in
neighboring churches (Mr, Saukey
going' from place to place singing his
songs), while the sidewalks and
house-stoops for blocks around were
black with the constantly increasing
crowd. Additional car-tracks had
been laid by the street railroad com
panies to the doors of the building,
and though cars were run at inter
vals of only one minute, many thou
sands had to wend their ways home
ward on foot. The prayer, with
which the services were begun,
though delivered by a minister
whose manner is never impassioned
and whose style is purely argumenta
tive, was interrupted by frequent
and fervent ejaculations from 'the
audience, indicating the intense sym
pathy with the movement which ex
isted. The songs of Mr. Sankey re
newed and hightened these demon
strations, and the utterances of Mr.
Moody raised the excitement, en
thusiasm, religious fervor, as one
may choose to call it, to tho highest

Philadelphia, Nov. 10, 1875.
Among the impersonal verb3 that
are still fresh in my memory from
grammar days, is the emphatical one
'it snows." And so indeed it does.
Everything is "jingle, jingle," furs
and oysters. Sleighs are skimming
out Broad Street in myriads, while
fully as many take to the Park and
the Centennial buildings. Apropos,
the New York Centennial Board re
cently made a visit to this city, in
order personally to inspect the
grounds and buildings of the Cen
tennial Exposition. As a result of
the visit, the Board has issued an en
thusiastic address to their State up
on the subject of the Exposition.
The Commissioners were very much
struck with the huge dimensions of
the main building, and the strength
and grace of Machinery.AgricnUnral
and Art Halls, and their adaptability
to the objects for which they are de
signed. Of our much-talked-of Fair
mount Park they said, "It is only
fair to remark that for the purpose of
such an Exhibition as that which is
contemplated, no more desirable
place, whether regard be had to con
venience or to biauty, could be
found in any part of the wo. Id." I
can confidently say that ho such op
portunity has ever been offered on
this side of the Atlantic for exhibit
ing aud profitably displaying goods.
If our people hold back, or prove
themselves indifferent, they th m
selves are the losers. It is perhaps
below the mark to say that the Ex
hibition will be visited by ten million
people during tho six months from
May to November. It is estimated
that no less than 70,000 people will
cross the Atlantic to see the Exposi
tion. It is well known that after the
London Exhibition of 1SC2, tho in
crease of exports in two years
amounted to 200,000,000. Am I too
sanguine if I look for a similar re
sult in this country?
Director-General Goshovn has con
tracted for the erection of a Centen
nial building to bo devoted to the
shoo aud leather interests of the
country. It will have 100 feet front
and be 300 feet deep, covering about
two acres. Its contractors will be
gin at once. It is the intention to
display iu this building the goods of
shoe manufacturers and tanners of
all kindc of leather.
From Buenos Ay res comes the
gratifying intelligence that the Ar
gentine Bepublic will be, for the first
time, next year, fully represented iu
an international exhibition. All of
tho South American countries re
taking great interest iu the Centenni
al, and it is certain that their disnlav
will far exceed that made by them in
Paris or Vienna. The visit of Em
peror Dom Pedro is, .according to ad
vices from Bio Janeiro, fully deter
mined upon. He intends to ' bs
present at the opeuing oi the Exhi
bition, and will afterwards make an
extensive tour through tho countrv

New York, Nov. 10, 1S75.
After the sto-m of politics comes
the invariable calm in fact, so ver
aim that it makes one almost nerv
als to contemplate it. Everybody

his own business, and the result is

Last week two Polish Jews locked
themselves in a room and fought out
with pistols an old feud, to the death
of each. The parties to the duel
were Davis Jerslow and Joseph Gold
man, and from the meagre facts thus
far obtained, it seems that- they had
been formerly partners in the jewelry
business, and that Jerslow became
distrustful of Goldman. -Fearing
that Goldman was defrauding him,
he began some months ago keeping
a careful account of the business.
He soon became satisfied that his
suspicions were well founded, and
hard words between the two men fol
lowed, which resulted in a dissolu
tion of partnership in last August.
This, it seems, was the real cause of
tho terrible fight. Goldman sent
word to Jerslow that a woman was
waiting for him in a room ou Dela
ware phvje. Jerslow obeyed the
summons, and nothing more is known
of him uutil ho was found insensible
and wounded. Tl.e following de
scription of the finale of the death
fight, I copy from the Times:
Officer Harsken then burst the fast
enings and found still an obstruction.
Succeeding finally in gettingthrough

man lay against the door, while a
corpse laT six feet off. Tho blood

was speechless and apparently sense

forts to obtain a word from him. but
with no success. Lying on the iloor,
near 3 his right hand, was a pistol.
Tho body of Joseph Goldman lay
with the head on the hearth-stone of
a little cooking-stove. He was dead,
anil clinched in his right haud was a
pistol exactly lileo the one on the
iloor. A wound in his right clieek.
and another in his right temple,
showed the manner of his death. An
ambulance was telegraphed for, and
Jerslow was taken to the lenth Pre
cinct Station House, where Dr. En
sign examined into his condition.
The doctor found apistol-shot wound
just above Jus right ear, winch ex
tended through the skull into tho
