JOHN J. JACOBS,
VOL. 21 NO- 8.
"Uss breeds a babit in a roan,"
saitb Sbakespear, and tbe habit it bag
bi'ed in Democratic editors ia misrep
resentation which it a very mild and
good mannered word for it of all Re
publicans and especially of Ibis Repub
lican. Administration. One of . tbe
most popular of these falsehoods wag
repeated in the Herald a few days
since, charging that tbe collectors of
Internal Revenue are defaulters to tbe
government to tbe amount of twenty
millions of dollars. Tbe story bag
grown steadily from sixty millions
dewn to twenty and the last February
report of the Secretary of the Treasnry
is quoted as proof that these revenue
colleetors have stolen twenty millions
Now, as to the facts in tbe case, tbe
Secretary of tbe Treasury published
tbe amounts of assessments charged
against tbe different collection districts,
and to explain tbat item we remind
our readers tbat there are Revenue
Assessors, who first assess tbe amounts
due government, just as there are
county assessors who assess taxes for
the State and counties here in Oregon.
The duty of tbe collectors is to coFIect
(be taxes so assessed, juat 84 tbe
Sheriff in each county or Oregon col
lects tbe taxes tbat are assessed in this
State. Tbe twenty millions charged
as not having been collected by Rev-
nue Collectors correspond wi b tbe
elioqdent taxes which our sheriffs
nd it impossible to collect. And it '
s a little remarkable that in collection
ne thousand five hundred millions' of
internal revenue there has only been a
delinquent list of twenty millions, or
one dollar in seventy -five.
Now, tbe actual defalcation of col
lectors is placed at $2,750,000, or
about tbat, and a great portion of that
occurred under Johnson's adminisua-
ion and wag by men who are and were
Democrats. But we will be generous
n our figures, and assume tbat that
atnonnt of defalcation has occurred in
he course of tbe last nine years. It
hould not have happened ; but defal
cations do continually tappeD in both
public and private life, and they are
not tbe exclusive fault of either party.
It appears, then, tbat in nine yeara
past the Government bis been de
frauded of twenty cents out of each
one hundred dollars : or that out tf
every nve dollars collected one cent
has bten stolen. The thieves ougbl
to be caught and punished ; but, as
the world goes, has the stealing been
o practically enormous as these horror
trkken Democrats try to make tbeir
rt aders believe ?
Misrepresentation is tbe present sta
ple of Democratic argument. The
Herald knew it was mii:renrese3tiDg
when it charged twenty millions as the
amount Republican officials have ste
le D, and it purposed to injure its oppo
nents by its untruthfulness, which
does not at all comport with tbe highly
devotional tone ol some of its eailier
New York city bag set an example
of teaK-f w-ivUib - words can't do jus
tice to, and figures fail to express, so
Harper' t Weekly has gone to making
pictures of it. Lst tbe Ihrald sub
scribe for Jarjirr'i Wc-kly then, and '
every time it wants to rnisreprestnt
Republican rule let il take a look at
the awful caricatures ibe New Voik
Ring bag occasioned, 'and tbat should
prove a moral lesson which may eave
the editor the pt oitenttal trip back to
" O d Pike," of which bister Puntway
talks so feelingly or rather, so uuteel
itgly. No blgnificance.
Where ignorance is bliss it is folly
to be wise, perhaps, and for all that
the Executive Organ in this city is con
cerned, the Democrats who look to it
for information are not likely ever to
find out that there has been an eltction
in California this fall. A gentleman
of veracity informs us tbat be took
yesterday's issue op and went up and
down its columns carefully examining
to find out where the California elec
tion came la, and it came in nowhere.
The Organist of tbe Executive jays
tbe California election "possesses no
significance," and be devoted bis val
uable space to some jargon about the
Ko KIqx bill iostead. We met one of
its subscribers a day or so ago, and he
knew it already, and said it served
them right and would be just so here
next spring. Tbe New Departure, he.
said, did it, for be said tbe most of
them were like him and didn't want
any Republican principles mixed into
tbeir politics, and when tbey did tbey
know where to get a i'",i'ne article.
ne Gone A Warning to iheOur.
By tbe defeat Ot H. H.'Haighl one of
the most pestilent demagogues that
ever diagbsted the sensible portion of
the population of tbe Pacific States is
finally pat oat of tbe way. He and
Governor Grover of t'ji State are a
matched pair. Both of thera are cold
blooded, proud aod aristocratic in all
tbeir instincts and feelings ; but with
calculating insincerity they professed
great love for the " laboring masses"
in order to get votes, though they have
not and never had one sympathetic
emotion for the devotees of labor.
They have gone over their respective
States bawling about the Chinese and
plying tbe very lowest arts of tbe low
demagogue, they have appealed to tbe
proletairea to accept lAent as their
champions, vote them into power, re
buke tbe "Radical oppressors ol labor,"
and inaugurate tbe labors' millenium.
In dignity and morality the efforts of
these two Governors on this subject
have not been single degree above
tbe harangues of Jack Cade, of whom
alone they are worthy to be lineal po
litical desceadentg and successors. In
one respect Jack Cade was less culpa
ble and less disgusting tban tbey, for
he was an illiterate clown of whom -the
like might be expected, while tbey
are men who know better but are will
ing to stoop to this low business itt tbe
hope" of obtaining political advance
ment. California has disposed of one
of these demagogues ; Oregon will 3o
likewise with the other. Grover teems
to have taken big low tricks from
Haight,, and to have looked to him as
counsellor and guide. Tbat prop is
gone, and Grover will be compelled to
fall back wholly on 'Bill Watkinds.
Smsibli CoacLcaion. Charles tbe
Fifth after his abdication amused him
self in big retirement at St. Juste, by
attempting to -make number of
watches go exactly together. . Being
constantly foiled in big attempt, be ex
claimed, "What a fool have I been to
neglect my pwn concerns, and to waste
my whole life in a vain attempt to
make all men think alike on matters
. of religion, when I can not even make
a few watches keep time togetbtr."
Signs of the Times.
Tbe election in California gives as
much encouragement to the Republi
cans of the United States, now, as
there was tbe opposite offered in 1867,
when Haight was elected Governor of
tbat State. He bag run bis career for
four years ; be claimed tbat be was es
pecially tbe people's champion against
monopoly ; be stood forth as a once
Republican and therefore as an sppro
priate representative of the New De
parture theory, which was tbe main
plank ia tbe party platform. Tbe re
sult shows bow tbe honest voters ap
preciate tbe shams of Democracy and
how certainly and fully tbe people will
sustain tbe principles of the Republi
can party when they are honestly put
forth and are represented by men tbe
people can honor and confide in. In
1867 the Republican party of Califor
nia was managed by corrupt men and
tbe people refused their confidence and
their vote. In tbat year it was the. Re
publicans who stayed away from tbe
polls who elected Haigbt, and this
year it is those sasoe men who have
I a every respect the present - cam
paign has been fairry and honorably
conducted. Ealh party has put forth
its best men and whatever principles
Democracy bad it has made the most
of. Haigbt is a demagogue and thet
bare thrown bim aside. Tbe acts of
Democracy in power have notsatitfied
the voters abd taxpayers and they have
pronounced a louder verdict against
them than any one expected, for tbe
highest expectations of Republicans
there did not equal tbe result.
California sends three Republican
representatives to Congress and has a
Republican Legislature elect, which
will choose a Senator to succeed Cor
nelius Cole. All this is grandly satis
factory and we need not doubt tbat
our own State will in due time follow
the example so nobly set.
Tbe signs of the times are all sati:
I'actory, and from Maiue, where Da
mecracy expected to at least make
gains, we learn that after a very an
imated election, iu whica a remarkably
full vole was cast, the Republican tu-i-
j nty stands several thausand greater
I than before.
North Carolina Las gone strongly
Republican ; very unexpectedly so too,
as tbe vote shows that a Urge number
of while men have been added to tbe
Republicans cf ihe Old North S'ate.
Kentucky has le3sed tbe Democratic
mtijority in tbat Slate, showing that
white men are becoming Republicans
there, and this will entourage others
and increase the chances for our party
there in tbe future.
Montana has been long and strong
Democratic, but that Territory is to be
represented hereafter by a Republican
Where are the Democratic gains?
Echo answers, where? and ibe voice
of tbe people heard at the polls, wher
ever an election is held, answers, " no
where." Democracy has, indeed, taken "a
new departure." Il has " let go all
holds" and started down bill witb
grenter force than ever, and where it
will briog op nobody knows, and, for
tunately, nobody cures.
Wanted, A Counsellor.
Last Fall, when Grovrr mu-tt-red j
backbone enough to veto th- Portland
s.ib-iiy bill, betook II I! . II .ili. , of !
California, into bis conti leuce, fi.d the
two (Jovernois chuckled t. neiln r over
their own pr rttiriuAOces. From ibat
time to ibis our Governor bas stiflcnel
iiji considerably, under ihe idea, prob
ably, that " H. H. H." was as good a
medicine as it is snid to be, for it bas
had a great run in its day. Tbe ques
lion is, what will our Governor do, now
tbat bis specific bag lost its virtue and
is no longer a popular nostrum? There
is no telling, but something must be
done for bim, and done qnickly. We
could recommend a careful perusal of
Booth's campaign speeches, but then
we fear be would say of them as bis par
ly journals ay of tbe late California
election, tbat tbey " possess no signifi
cance." " A nod is as good as a wink to a
blind horse," and what Grover wants
and mnst have, now tbat bis counsellor
Haigbt is played out, is a bosom friend
to nod or wink at him occasionally in
tbe nick of time.
Sbe Wanted to be an Angel.
Tbe Simpsons in Haddonfield, New
Jersey, belong to the Millerites ; and a
sbort time ago a conviction seized opon
the mind of Mrs. Simpson that there
would he an ascension- opon a certain
Hiy just previous to tbe destruction of
... A-.-rM. So, when tbe day arrived,
Mr. ci ii., '-"n. his wife and his motber-in-Iaw
urease i b melves up in sheets
and nightgowns anil things, and pro
ceeded to mount to llic not of the
snrokehouse a posiiiju which Mr.
Simpson had selected because it teemed
to be a place from wbioh a first-rate
start could be made. When Simpson
and bis wife bad reached tbe roof,
Simpson's mother-in-law was seen
coming from tbe house, fixed off in her
gum shoes, aod carrying with her her
umbrella aod a dozen teaspoons and
an alaba teapot, which were given to
ber when she was married. When
Simpson saw this, be called to ber to
throw away those worldly goods, and
to climb up without such vile dress.
But old Mrs. Jones graBped her um
brella firmly with her band, put ber
foot down in ber gum shoe, clasped
ber albata teapot to ber bosom, and
said tbat, as it wag ber only treasure,
she would take it along at all hazards;
and, as the weather would probably be
damp on tbe way np, she wasn't going
to abandon her gum shoes and um
brella, merely to oblige such a fool as
Simpson. So she made a bolt up the
ladder, and reached the summit just
as Simpson tried to throw the ladder
down. She seized bim by the leg.
To save himself, be caught bold of
Mrs. Simpson's ascension robe ; tbe
mother-in-law fell, and tbe whole party
came down from that smokesbouse roof
in a manner which proved tbat tbe at
traction of gravitation possessed unn
sualstrength in tbat particular locality.
Tbe asseosion bas not taken place yet,
and Mr. Simpton told the doctor. cocfi
dentially tbat when the fracture of bis
leg healed be would Start off some
where, aod fix things so tbat he could
go up by himself for it was perfectly
absurd for any man to try . to soar into
the regions of celestial bliss id tbe
company of a wretched old woman
who wanted, to be an angel, aod yet
bad no more sense tban to imagine
that beings of that kind could witb
propiety fly around with umbrellas,
gum shoes and battered albata teapots.
It is a queer woman wbo asks no
questions, bat tbe woman wbo does is
Tammanj In Trouble.
The forty thieves of New Vork City,
and especially tbe four principle mem
bers of tbe Ring, are in a good deal of
trouble. Coonolly, tbe Controller,
bas been asked by tbe Mayor to resign,
but be does'nt resign worth acent, and
they did'nt have any idea be would.
Strange, too, just when he is about to
show his accounts and explain the ope
ration of the city finances, there is a.
burglary committed opon his safe,
and a lot of vouchers are found miss
ing,, or rather are missing and cannot
be found. A sbort while sinse the
Democratic papers of our own State
were busy denying tbat Tammany of
ficials bad done anything dishonest.
That was the cue from the A'. Y. World,
but since then a great part of tbe Dem
ocratic press of New York bag 'com
menced denouncing them as rascals,
and the Citizen, edited by Roosevelt, a
Democratic member of Congress, from
New York City, hag made more serious
charges against Boss Tweed and bis
partners in tbeivery, than even the Re
publican, pipers have ottered.
Tbe Albany (N. X .JEtening Titoer, ,
as able ptper and Independent In poll-ti.-s,
declares that Democracy has lost
by defending Tammany so long and
cannot regain character by denounc
ing it so late in tbe day. It has passed
into an absolute conviction with all
honest men, that the Tammany rule of
New York baa exceeded in swindling
and dishonesty, anyTecord ever made
by man. Boss Tweed k Co. have at
tained the bad pre-emineuce of being
the grandest rascals that ever were
known in history.
Tammany is in trouble, but it is de
termined to brave it out aod Mayor
Hall coolly announced bis determina
tion to run again, fully confident, no
douht, that having tbe mob purchased
and at command the Ring Riscals can
laugh at developemeots and rule and
ft.'al and steal and rale ss long as
they choose. They do not seem to be
afraid of killing the goose tbat lays
such golden eggs and are Bimply act
ing up to tbe time honored Democratic
precept " when jou have a god
tbiDg press il."
Perhaps the greatest joke of tbe
season is Mayor Hall's demand tbat
Connolly shall resign. Why don't be
set bim tbe example ?
The Underwood-Rogers Discussion.
Ei oese City, Sept. 13th, 1S71
Editor Statesman : Permit me to
say a word in reply to Prof. Roger's
communication under the bead of
" Lectures vs. Debates."
His Etateroent that he has accepted
my challenge seems to n e most disin
rri nious. He has done no such thing.
D. dining to meet me in discussion, be
h8 jimply proposed to " alternate
with me in giving lectures." The rea
son tbat I did cot accede to this propo
sition is already known to youf read
ers. Tbe Professor says " no man
ouM go to hear one side that would
not wish to hear tbe otber." A large
txperience io giving lectures, and hold
ing dUcussioos with tbe clergy, enable
me to know tbat the statement Is in
correct. I must, therefor, insist on
an arrangement that will insure the
certainty of my having the same audi
ence thrtt my christian opponent ad
dresej. 1 will accept Prof. Rogers'
proposition- on condition that be agrees
to a lecture by us both, on the same
evening, and in ibe sme hall, and
ibat each give -opening lectures tbe
same number of evenings. My en
gngiments in Oregon aud California
now obiige me to limit tbe discussion,
or course ot lectures, to eix evenings.
D'scussioos are not undignified nor
unwise, as the Profeesor declares, ex
rept when tbe debaters are lacking in
sincerity, courtesy and acquaintance
with tbe subject discussed. I have
bad tbe honor of meeting, in debate, a
Urge number ef clergymen, includirg
several wbo have beld positions in
Universities, in tbe Etst, quite as high
aud important as that which Prof.
Rogers holds in the Willamette Uni
versity. I never hear any intimation
tbat these discussions were lacking in
true dignity and I am sure tbey were
well received by tbe public.
Of Prof. Rogers' worthiness as an
opponent; of bis entire competency as
a representative of Christianity, tbe
position which he holds is sufficient
Tbat tbe people of this coast will
consider bis proposition a fair accept'
ance of my challenge 1 do not believe.
1 have beard large numbers of chris
tians, aud even clergymen, express
dissatisfaction with the gourit which
be has pursued.
The statement that I " mnst in hon
or accede" to tbe proposition which he
saw fit to make, as a sort of substitute
for an acceptance of my invitation for
a debate, must have beeq made incon
siderately. . He is at liberty to decline
accepting my challenge, I am equally
at. liberty to decline accepting his pro-,
position without violating any princi
ple of honor.
B. F. Ubdebwood. -
Centralization and am Empire.
The Herald may as well dry up about
" centralization sod an Empire," for
if its long winded harangues mean
anything they mean that tbe people of
California have voted with distressing
emphasis for " centralization and an
Empire." As this dreaded horror is
coming so near borne to him, it may be
as well for bim to start back to tbe be
loved land of Pike, as tbe Ktw North
tceH advises, before tbe people of Ore
gon go into the "centralization and
an Empire" business next Spring,
which they will certainly do in a way
tbat will astonish a new beginner.
The destructive force of a grass
hopper visitation is indicated in a note
from a settler in Dakota who writes
from Fort. Berthold, July 26 : " Every
thing was growing finely 6o the larm
until this morning, hen at about 11
o'clock tbe grasshoppers arrivrd, and
have very nearly cleaned us oat. Our
gardens are entirely ruioed. From
tbe oat we save enough straw for the
horses, but everything in the gardens
and in tbe fields of tbe Indians is to
tally costumed.. The whole work of
the season was destroyed in less tban
eight boars, over a country of 300
acres. I do not know bow we shall
get through the Winter, as cold weath
er begins tbe first of October, and
lasts six months. Buffalo are very
scarce, aid otber game is not very
All are not haulers that blow the horn.

Written for the Statesman.

Now, teH your minstrel to conic, my love.
And .briog his Bute it tuae.
And while the twilight is banging above.
To play me " Bunai Dasn,"
The " braes of Bonn is Daun ;"
Play witb the thrill of a sorrowful air,
Like the throb of a fluggiah lagoon.
The twilight hush of a Lous Ago '
Felt tbe thrill of a flute in tune.
And it wared the silence to and fro
To the ripple of " Bonnie Daun ;"
He played for me " Bonnie Daun."
Aod bis grave is now in the burning sands
By a dreamless and Voiceless lagoon.
Why did I smile when tbe silence was stained
Vith the sorrowful tears of a flute.
When my heart, like a charmed bird, was
And the voice of my soul was mute.
When tbe Angel of Death 'dropped ber
On tbe strings of bis heart for a lute ?
The Night has opened her minstrelsies.
And the stars peal over tire sea
I wonld yW would sfcg a song lo ms,
Of the "grave of Eildie ;"
Th song of " Eulalie j"
Sing in a loving aod cbetrful voice
As tho' you were singing for me.
Out of sound of the wild sea song,
Away from the sound of tbe sea.
In the blackness of Night we rode along.
And ht sung for me " Eulalie."
Now, one is dead and one is false,
And both are dead to inc.
Together we rode thrcujjh the dark, old
His voice and bis heart were near,
Our steeds they plunged in the solitude,
But my heart felt never a fear
Never a pulse of fear,
Tho' I heard the rush of a river's flood,
And the way was uncertain and drear.
But why did I weep as I rode along.
When my heart was so free from care.
And he sung for me, and me only bis song,
Of " Eulalie," dead and fair,
With a cheering and love-like air?
Why did I weep as we rode along?
Hiding I cared not where.
The grave is a lonely place to hold
All of my precious fo be.
But a sadder placo U a heart tbat is cold
A heart that is false to uie. ,
False and fickle is he,
So out of the etainful dusk of the grave,
The hues of a Promise I see. -
Salem, Oregon, Sept. 8, 1871.
Where are the girls now who can
play, and where are tbe clolbes in
which they can enjoy play without
fear and trembling? Think of trying
to wade through a book, and of en
joying the delicious sensation of water
running over bare feet and around bare
ankles, when at every step one must
ask, " Sue, does the lower Bounces
touch tbe water? Will the overskirt
get splashed? Is tbe pannier too low,
and are tbe ends of tbe sash tacked
up?" Think of trying to climb a
cherry tree, aDd enjoying tbe feat acd
the fruit, when every limb threatens
your chignon and frizzled " top-knot,"
or of jumping from a beam, into the
bay-mow, when your nether limbs are
laced in high gaiters and bound in
light bands one would Alrop dowa

Having fur months been under the care
of respectable physicians, who, however,

Board or ScnooL Laud Commissioners.
This Board, consisting of Gov. Grover,
Secretary Chadwick and State Treasurer
Fleischner, met on Tuesday morning for the
purpose of disposing of a large amount of
business, which bas accumulated for a few
months past. Tbe case of Beujumin Slogs
vs. S. M. Lyon, involving a conflict of the
rights of these parties, was decided on
Wednesday. The Board held tbat an ap
praisement must in all cases accompany the
application for the land. In this case there
was no appraisement accompanying the ap
plication of Mr. Sloss, and the application
of Mr. Lyons being perfect in this particu
lar, having with it an appraisement, the
Board awarded the right to the Law to Mr.
Lynns. On Wednesday tbe esse of John

involving the settlement of Igo upon 820
acres of land io Benton county, was decided
in favor of Igo, after agreement The

stopped by a boy of 16 years who ordered
him to ' fork over" bis money ; but as the
money did'nt "fork" itself -over Ihe boy
j concluded to " go through" him, which he
' did. All this is said to have occurred in
; broad daylight. We wonder who saw
j this little transaction ; it is news to us, and
! will probably be new to our readers. Our
correspondent also states that Rev. Thomp-
I son is a sraoger here, and is not sure that
' he bas friends to aid bim iu bringing this
" boy" to justice. If the boy had succeed
i cd in finding any money, this- clerical gen-

at the Fair Grounds, and the Board of
Managers are determined to do all that lies
in their power to add to the comfort and
convenience of the multitude who will cer

as been a great drawback, and this will be
avoided greatly by tbe arrangements in

ends of the route. Tbe farmers will cer
tainly turn out in greater numbers than

That Coloked Preacher. The rumor
that a "boy" has lately "gono through" a
colored preacher and relieved bim of his
small change, here iu Salem, calls out
from one of our colored citizens the story
tbat there was a colored gentleman around
ere not long since, who passed hiins If off
as a preacher, and who declared tbat he had
money to pay bis way, so be took bim in
as a boarder and gave him the best be had.
One day Mister preacher took up bis hat i
and overcoat and left, but be left nothing
to pay bis board, and even forgot to say
good bye. Now, if that darkey is travel
ing aboot showing how some boy here in
Salem Eu Kluxcd him, he bad better be in
vited t- preach from tome other text and
keep up his board accounts. Universal
suffrage demonstrates that a negro, with the
help of bis present advantages, can be as

ing a house for a private residence, the
cost of which will probably reach 6,000.
Various otber improvements are going on
which go to show that things are lively
bver in Polk.
Wheat. The said cereal was never
more certainly a cash article tban here at
the-present time. Probably half tbe wheat
in this valley has been engaged at not over
one dollar per bushel, and as tbe price has
gono up at least 15 cU. on the -bushel, the
rise on a million and a half -of bushels as a
profit to buyers of nearly a quarter of a
million of dollars. Don't you wish you
had'nt sold your wheat?
Failure.' Yesterday afternoon quit! a
