Tbe joke on the Receiver was one of
tbe best we have heard in a long time,
and tbe best thing about it, which our
Democratic cotemporariea will admire
most, is tbe swift manner in which the
Government removes a man proved un
worthy, though not a defaulter. The
intention of the administration in hav
ing confidential agents in Its employ
to ferret out such cases is certainly to
protect the Treasury, and its immedi

honest because tbe history of man

In tbe meantime we do not learn

Seir Destruction of Tammany.
The Kilkenny cats set an example
which the Tammany Ring seems des
tined to follow. They "fit and fit"
until mutual destruction was tbe un
happy result. So tbese four grand
thieves, flail, Sweeney, Tweed and
Connolly, are at onts, and the only
consolation. tbe public are afforded is
that when " rogues fall out honest
men get tbeir due," though there is
not much hope that any portion of the
stolen money will be recovered by tbe
Hall and Sweeney are bound to
crush Tweed and Connolly, so tbe tele
graph intimates, and we hope it is so.
The destruction of tbeir respective
characters will be a small job and
won't disturb tbe public equanimity a
particle. There is little of that left ;
but the quarrel amounts to a free show
offered the propte, for which tbey paid
heavily in advance. Its grand pecu-.
liarity will be tbat bo one will care
wbich tide whips, and all the world
will watch and wait very resignedly
for the tip end of the tails to wiggle as
tbe only remnant of the glories of
Tammany when tbe row is wonnd up;
and then the name Tammany, hereto
fore a power, will bo played ont for
California Ligiblatcbi. Tbe late
election in California bas resulted in
giving tbe Republicans tbe popular
branch of the Legislature by a large
majority, nearly two to one ia their
favor, but tbe Senate is still in doubt,
as of the Senators who hold over, fif
teen nut of tbe nineteen are Democrats.
So although tbe majority of those re
cently elected are Republicans, tbey
"may. not overcome tbe majority of
those who hold over. There will be
no doubt about tbe election of a Re
publican U. S. Senator. It wonld be
desirable to bave strength in each
house to repeal certain obnoxious leg
islation, but it is hardly possible tbat
the Senate will disregard tbe voice of
tbe people at the late election by re
fusing to do so, still it may, -if that
body bas any Dmocratic majority.

money for publishing that last notice
about some woman leaving some man's
bed and board. New Amthtcul.
Tbe oWy man who ever advertised

Portland, and soon after tbe Ktw

and stole the woman's affections back
again and took ber where tbe protect

Perhaps she lives with him to get even
as a woman has a right to do. Thai
man should be protected for " Hell
knows no fury like'a woman scorned.'
In the citv lives a poor family the
father of wbich is a Catholic, while
tbe mother is a Protestant. .Recently
tbeir daughter, a beautiful child o
five vears, suddenly sickened and died
During its sickness it was attended by
a nhvsician who was accompanied on
every visit by bis daughter, a girl of
fifteen years, who evinced tne greatest
solicitude tor tbe little sufferer. When
death came with its cold icy grasp, tbe
young lady was there, and wilh tender
hands closed tbe innocent eyes and ar
ranged tbe form of tbe babe who had
been called home. Tbe funeral took
place tbe next day, and owing to tbe
conflict ot religious opinions octweeu
tbe oarents. neither priest nor minis
ter was called in. Tbe yonog lady
went to the house of mourning, and in
company wilh the grief stricken
parents, followed the remains to tbe
cemeterv. Arriving there, tbe little
bodv was placed by the side of its nar
row resting place to allow of a last
look at tba sweet face which all loved
so well. With a low wail tba poor
mother threw herself down by it, and
with passionate kisses sought, as it
were, to recall Ufa to the cold motion
less clsy. Kveryooe was visibly af
fected by ibis outburst, and when she
called upon this young .lady to offer a
prayer fur ber poor darling, all rever
entially uncovered and knelt to tbe
ground. Tba young lady without a
momeots hesitation, knelt and com
menced- praying. At first ber voice
was visibly affected by emotioa, but as
she proceeded she seemed to forget
self and surrSundings, and poured
forth each a fervent and touching ap
peal to tbe Tbrone of Oraee that there
was not, when sbe -ceased, a dry eye
or an unmoved heart in tba assembly.
When she bad inisbed, tlje -body was
carefully lowered into tbe grave, ahove

Ssan B. Anthony.
The appearance of Susan B. Anthony 1
Dng s created much interest, ana 1 tho
the announcement tbat she would lec
ture on Woman's Rights" drew out
very large audiences, composed of per
sona of all shades of opinion. It is
generally conceded that she told mauy
trnths and told them remarkably well.
People may have expected that a cham
pion of the new movement would be
something of a scold, bat the tones in
which she did her scolding for she
did scold all mankind at a terrible
rate were decoroas and womanly, so
much so that thw effect of her lectures
was greatly enhanced by the admirable
manner and apparent good taste ot
As we have said before, we recognize
tbe important nature of tbe movement,
aad are not prepared to deny tbat tbe
rights of woman nerd more protection,
and it is certainly tbe first duty of man
to accord to ber every privilege she
can claim, and we believe it will be
his pleasure, also, to deny to wife,
mother, and sister, nothing that make
her happy or that can make the world
at large happier or better
We object to tbe tone of Miss Antho
ny's lectures because she assumes as
tbe foundation of her argument that
man is an' anreasonala tyrant, that he
is almost universally unfaithful to his
marriage vow, and that be, In the
average of cases, defrauds bis w.fe of
ber just earnings and denies ber any
voice In government or any protection
under tbe law. She would make mar
riage a matter of business ; we would
wish to bave It considered ever as a
sacred obligation which only death
tkaa Id Dart, eieapt a&4t tho eaoot
cruel circumstances. She denounces
tbe laws with reference to woman's
rights, whereas the statute or our
State is strongly in ber favor. She
sums up the evils incident to society,
wbich are promoted to a certain degree
by the very civilisation we boast of,
and claims they can all be cored by
giving women the ballot, a remedy
wbich we could wish to be efficient,
but which we have only her word for,
which she established by no reasoning
that deserves to be called logic. And
she smoothed over the difficulties in
the way with silky touch, as If woman
was, of course, an angel, whose na
ture would survive the pollution of
politics and sustain no blemish by be
coming ambitious for office.
Miss Anthony asserted much and
with plausable voice and earnest man
ner, proved little. Gathering our
wives and daughters together by them
selves,' she told them men were as a
class unfaithful, and we regret 10 say
that she illustrated ber private lecture
with improbable anecdotes that were
borrowed from a condition of society
a political stump orator could scarce
invade with impunity. We believe
tbat when the first effect of her ap
pearance wears away, the women of
Oregon will realize that while she told
many truths and iold them well, she
treated their own husbands and fathers
unfairly. Though there are many as
bad as she described too many still
we resent tbe charge, brought, by a
disappointed and sarcastic womao
neither a wife or mother against the
race of men who are to-day carrying
civilization to its highest point, rais
ing bnman natore above its former
level, giving woman more privileges
than she has ever bad, and whose
motto is freedom, equality, common
education and tbe elevation of the
laboring classes. She is not entirely
dulnterested, either, in adopting tbe
role of a reformer, for she seems 4o
bave received a very handsome sum,
even here in Salem, for her attempt to
prove that 11 all men are liars."
Swamp Land Troubles.
Troubles in relation to Swamp Land
matters seem to abound in several
States and to be tba cause of much
dissatisfaction among the people, for
ia every instance speculators are favored-and
tbe people are the losers.
California bad snch legislation and tbe
people actei upon the matter by revo
lutionizing political matters at tbe
Tbe legislation of 1870 in our own
State was most unscrupulous and un
justifiable. What we wanted was
merely to legislate to save tbe swamp
lands to the State, which bad never
been done; but tbe lobby interests,
cobined with tbe greed of some of tbe
legislators themselves, procured the
passage of an act which disposed of
tbe lands in advance of tbeir acqnisi.
tion and tbat, too, contrary to tbe
best interests of tbe State. Without.
ever waiting to ascertain the extent or
value of the swamp and overflowed
lands of Oregon, or what rights of ac
tual settlers would be invaded, a law
was passed to make wholesale disposi
tion of all wet lands to the first claim
Next Spring, when the people of
Oregon come to vote, tbey will be sure
to ask bow the interests of tbe State
were considered in relation to taw amp
lands, and it will appear that without
tbe slightest knowledge of an official
character as to tbe extent and value of
such lands ; without inqiring if tbey
were io part alrearir occupied ; with
out providing lor the nitrrrst of such
persona m propose lo become actual
trlilrrv, but in theinterest of rapacious
spectators alone, the swamp lands of
Oregon were divided around among
those who had asked for tbe job to be
done, and a number of the legislators
themselves, and tbeir friends of tbe
political rings, were counted in as
beavy swamp land claimants. We
saw the disgraceful scattering of these
land vultures, the very instant tbe ink
was dry on the Governors signature,
rushing to the four quarters of Oregon
to take advantage of an emergency
clanse in the law, and be in advance,
before the people at large could Gad
out what infamous legislation had
been accomplished. Tbese facts will
increase tbe majorivy by which Dem
ocracy-will be routed in Oregon in
About tba most extraordinary legis
lation known or, has oeen achieved in

cratic tendencies for a year or so DacK
This was a law passed to incorpo

is rather interesting to learn that much
of this laud obtains its value from tbe
overflow, and is worthless without it,
such as cranberry s warp pa and peat

plan, and will be worth much less

the result of the recent attempt'
gotiating wilh the Indians, of the Uma
tilla "Reservation, is indicative of the
fact that Lo. is beginning to know
what's what on the qutetiou of valves.
Tbat he can appreciate the valao of
firet rate land, well located, as com
pared with poor land and an isolated
location. It, therefore, becomes man
ifest, tbat as there is no mote chance
to send the Indians out fee on d the
frontier of the wbite settlements, the
two racee are, henceforth, destined to
dwell together as neighbors. It thus
becomes a nutation with the white
n whether anything can be done lo
make the Indian a good neighbor set
tied to some productive industry -in
stead of what be now, loo often, is a
wandering vagrant whose presence or
neighborhood is anything but desira
ble. In order to effect this object tbe
Government bas tried Various means
as a general system, but it must be
confessed, with very indifferent suc
cess. It commenced, with tbe factory
system of purchasing tbe furs and pel
tries, collected by tbe Indians, by tbe
chase.. This plan afier trial was given
up, and an effort made to induce tbe
Indian to become a tiller of the soil,
by furnishing bim team, feed, in
struction, sc., Jf ., at tbe same lime a
partial supply of clothing was furnish-
ad, by the Government, for such a se
ries of years as it was supposed would
enable tbe Indian to become firmer
enough to supply bis own wants.
Stiix is the plan generally followed
at present, and bas been partially suc
cessful, in a few cases, tbe most so
where tbe tribe had been weaned from
the hunter's lire, by becoming owners
and possessors of stock, horses and
cattle. Thus I think it gill be found,
the history of the attempts of the
American Government to benefit tbe
Indian, by inducing bim to adopt a
settled occupation, will be found to
accord with the teachings of general
history : that the most common, nat-
ural and effective methods of trans-
forming a wild and roving race of peo
ple to tbe condition of settled homes
and civilization is that the pastural
pursuits should succeed the hunter's
as a preparatory course.
Take as an illustration those lodiass
on the Umatilla Agency, and I think it
will be found tbat the individuals ol
tbe tribe which showed tbe most cor
rect estimate of the value of their
present location and tbe most disin
clination to move to another were those
who bad the most stock, and have con
sequently attained to tbe best jndg--ment
of tbe value of property. View
ing tbe berdsmans life as the easiest
method of gathering wealth from a
large area of wild land, and as the
occupation into which it wqjild be tbe
easiest to induct the Indians, it has
been a matter of surprise to me tbat
the experiment has never been tried as
a settled Government policy. Speaking
on this subject to the late Mr. Hunt- j
ington, I found he was of tbe opinion
tbat if tbe Indians were stafted as
shepherds, they would leave their
flocKt , at the commencement of the
berry season, to the tender mercies of I
beasts of prey, or in a time of scarcity
of food, eat them alt themselves. Yet,
in tbe same conversation, Mr. H. told
of M'jor Borrhart's having given some
Cosset lambs from bis flock to some
sqtjawi of the Umatilla Agency, and
they had been so cared for that they
were increasing rapidly. This, I think,
is a good indication tbat a little train
ing and judicious advice would be
more effective in inducing tbe Indians 1
into the pastural life than to convert
bim at once into a tiller of the soil,
wbich demands a continued applica
tion of bodily labor to which the In
dian character and babit is certainly
much removed, but toward which the
keeping of stock would gradually and
certainly lead him as a means of in
creasing his borne comforts as tbe prof
its of his flocks and herds brought
upon him tbe habits and wants of a
civilized life. M.
It is remarkable that while a num
ber of Iuaurance Companies, both
American and foreign, find it profita
ble to make large deposits to secure
tbe privilege of doing business in the
Slate cf Oregon, tbe capitalists of our
own State have never before been able
to organize a home company to do its
share of the Insurance business and
benefit the State by keeping that much
money at borne. An effort is now mak
ing to organize such a company, aad
while its chief business will be locat
ed at Portland, no donbt our citizens
who bave means to invest will be of
fered an opportunity. This is a move
ment wbich should be encouraged,
for there is no doubt that a good souud
Oiegon Company, could do a success
ful business elsewhere on this coast,
and even in California. There is no
reason why Oregon men should sub
scribe to tbe stock of California In
surance Companies when tbe field is so
inviting for formation of one or more
good Insurance Companies in our own

rrldar flight Lecture.
Mis Anthony did well, on last Friday
evening, in her effort to answer many ob
jections hrged against woman suffrage.
She declared the ballot to be the emblem, of
liberty, respect and integrity. Man may
possess wealth, position honor, and if he
bas not the ballot, he is nothing ; be may
have neither the above, even though he be
stripped of everything that is desirable,
and still bear tbe right to vote, he is a sov
ereign. She showed the absurdity of the
argument that man represents woman, by
referring to the six hnndn d thousand bus
bands who are to-day victimised by drunk
enness and shame. Every person must be
represented by person or by proxy. Be
cause man is the bead of tbe family is no
reason that be should rule supremo ; brains
would always win, and if woman had the
greatest amount, she should be permitted
to make use of theui.
If a woman has the greatest amount of
executive talent she bas a right to exercise
it ; then many women would not be de
prived of their homes, by the mi.manae-
ment of reckless and extravagant husbands.
As tbe divine right of Popes bas been
overthrown, the last is, to overthrow the
tbe divine right of man.
Man docs not wih woman to vote, be
cause on bis return home, he wishes to en
ter a different atmosphere so as to relieve
the monotony of every day life ; still wo
mao must pass all the day in tbe kitchen
and if she asks for a change of atmosphere
the men say no, home is tho place for wo
man. She acknowledged tbe fact that tho
ballot and the bullet should go together,
and tbat women are willing to bear arms in
defense of their country ; thousands of
glorious women followed io the wake of
our noble soldiers, administering to the
wants of tbe wounded and dying ; this she
thought to be as high an honor as firing
the bullet. Five hundred women actually
tmuj-gled their Way into the army choosing
to battle alongside of their friends, ratber
thnu Le deprived of tbeir society at houiu.
These same women, as fast as government
detected their sex, were sent borne without
a dollar for tbeir se vices : the speaker
thought that it ill become the men to say,
that if you vote you must fight. What so-a
oiety needs most ia, a more familiar interest
in the same topic ; give woman tbe advan
tages of a broad generous culture and the
harmony of society will be vastly increased.
The quarrels that men anticipate will
arise between husband and wife, she
thought to be an acknowledgement on the
part of the men not to allow the wife to
vote the way she wants to. The cultiva
tion of a woman's brain would not" in any
wise rob hor of her anxiety for her chil
dren : an intelligent woman will take far
better care of her family than an ignorant
one. Yt ben women vote tbey will have tbe
power to rob men of some of their freedom
and license ; then drunken, libertine hus
bands will be at a discount ; the golden
hope of this movement is to exact of man
the same purity and chastity that he do
niands of woman. It is true that woman's
mis;ion is to go in the lanes and byways
and seek to elevate the condition of her
race; but while she is doingv this, thou
sands of women are falling to this same
level ; hence it is necessary that Women
should have tbe ballot, so as to render her
protection possible. Women are always
ready to vote on tho side of temperance,
purity and truth. Women who say. they do
not want to vote are ignorant npon the
question of the ballot and its relation to
the citizen. Our interest as men and wo
men are so linked together that whatever
affects one affects the other. As the last
link of slavery has been broken, so should
the chain bidding one sex to the other be
She claimed that all tbey wanted now
was the liberty to vote, and would not sup
port any party tbat was uot in favor of the
enfranchisement of women. The grand re
sult of which will be to purify politics and
elevate our government to a prouder posi
tion than it has 'ever attained.
She informed the ladies present that they
had tbe right to vote, under the Constitu
tion, and she hoped on Dext election day
tbey woald demand that right, and if de
nied enter suit against tbe judges of elec
tion. We await the issue of events.
Yol'kg Tarbuck. The young lad wbo
was injured day before yesterday was play
ing with the same belt, at tbe saw mill,
at which Gilmore was injured luA winter
Ho was suddenly caught and bis left arm
torn off between the shoulder and elbow.
The boy showed remarkable self-command
aud did not even faint. We are told tbat
as a cord was tied around tbe stump, he
said, " Don't pull that too tight, it hurts
pretty badly now." He was taken home
and was ab'.e to tell where his father was
working aud to give all information neces
sary. His strength of will is au assistance
to his recovery, and we are glad to hear
that he ia doiug well.
Apology. The subject of Miss Antho
ny's lecture Oc Friday evening last, as ad
vertised, was, " The Rights of Woman un
der the 14th and lath Amendments." She
desires us to state that she was not aware of
any subject being announced until after the
lecture was over. This explains why she
did not speak on that particular question,
Amputated. Dr. Richardson, assisted by
Dr. McAflee and others, operated upon tbe
boy who had his arm torn off in tho saw
mill day before yesterday, by amputating
at tbe shoulder joint. Tbe boy is doing as
well as could be expected under the circum
stances. Spiritual Grovc Meeting. Elsewhere

of Gen. Palmer as Agent. Tbe General is
turcly the right man in the right place.
Rai.n. Portland says that place was
visited with a gracious sprinkle of rain,
which was refreshing, etc. We are not in
clined to grumble, but we like fair play in
everything, and very much dislike par
tiality. Salem hasn't so much as seen the
g-hoi-t of a raindrop for lo these many days.
Holland says however that " the rain falls
kindly on tho just man's fields, ind on un
just man's more kindly still v With tbis
explanation wo are content.

cans, and having set things all right in
.California, they come to Oregon to do like
wise. Wo wish them abundant success.
Flowers for Sale. On passing up State
street yesterday our attention was called to
the following notice attached to the window
of Yot Loy's wash house. We give it ver-
batuu : " This Flowers for sell and a gen
tleman Want come to buy that flowers good
for in a family." That Chinaman 'is de
serving of a good price for his flowers.

For three years I suffered withsRANtrLAT

or, in fad, quite hliud ; so that I was una
ble to recognize my most intimate fricuds
except by their voices. I had employed
tho best medical aid 1 could find in tbe
State, without any relief, and bad almost
despaired of having my eyes cured and
siRht restored, until tbe arrival of Dr.
Aborn at the St. Charles Hotel, in tbis city,
and learning of bis remarkable skill and
success in curing cases that had been con
sidered hopeless, I" was advicd by my
friends to try bim, which I did, about two
weeks ag, and within forty-eight hours I
was able to see to walk about, and have
improved so rapidly from the very first day
that I am now about entirely cured, so that
I am now attending to my business as
painter. The speedy removal of tbe pain

after having been so blind and sorely af
flicted for three years, is so remarkable that
I am almost overwhelmed with joy, and

Remarkable Ci re. A card from Mr.
R. W. Hougliton, painter, may be found io
this issue, giving the fact of bis restoration
to sight alter a few days treatment by Dr.
Aborn. In addition to this we may give
the case of Mr. A. A. Durham, an oltl set-
tier of Oregon, who called on us la-t Tues

treatment by Dr. Aborn, his eyesight was
improved ; tbe joints of his hands and
lower limbs, stiffened for years by rheumatic
