ASTORIA, OREGON :
B. C. 1IMXAXB EDITOR
MONDAY Juke 12. 1876.
77?e Fourth of July at Astoria.
An enthusiastic meeting of patriot
ic citizens of Astoria assembled at
the Court-house Saturday evening,
and resolved to celebrate the Fourth
of July in a becoming manner. A
committee of five was appointed on
finances, consisting of Messrs. E. C.
Holden, F. J. Taylor, N. Kofoed, F.
Ferrell and Brenham Van Duseu.
The celebration will correspond with
the amount of money the committee
succeed in securing. Mr. F. Ferrell
was elected chairman of the meeting,
and the meeting adjourned subject to
Money and the Presidency.
Out of fourteen Democratic State
Conventions, only one of them (Ohio)
declared for soft money, and that with
an increased Tehemence, if that be
possible. The first Democratic State
Convention that was held last month
was that of Connecticut. It came out
flat footed for hard money. Rhode
sland followed suit in the same strain.
Pennsylvania the habitat of nearly .all
the economic errors, did not proclaim
for paper. Indiana, to make matters
sure, went for hard, soft and medium
money i any can be devised. But
the intention was to exhibit for the
time a haid money tendency. Ne
braska and New York pronounced for
crold and silver unenmvocallv; ditto
Nevada and Oregon; Iowa, hard mon
ey with a qualification, and Massachu
setts hard money without an if or hit.
The platforms of several States have
not come to hand, but enough is
Imown to warrant the conclusion that
hard money will be in a majority in
the National convention. "Were it
not for the famous Two-tliirds rule
which is likely to be brought into op
eration, it would be easy enough to
cast its horoscope. But with that
contingency hanging over the problem
nothing can be predicted with certainty.
The course pursued by Ohio is proof
that the inflationists have not given
up the fight by any means. They are
gathering strength, and may through a
minority by the rule in question, he
enabled to dictate both the nomination
and the platform.
Roclujfort's present newspaper is
apparently giving the authorities more
trouble than did his famous Lanterne.
Instead of pleading for the "rights of
man," as the title of his new journal
vould indicate, he seems to be raking
up all the old grievances which he suf-
ered during the Empire, and flagella
ting without mercy all who have ever
run counter to his wishes. From Olliv
ier to Prince Pierre Bonaparte, from
Thiers to McMahon, he pierces every
one with Ids untiring free lance. His
publisher has been repeatedly convict
ed and fined, ana his editor imprison
ed, but Rochefort is always invisible
whenever sought for.
Thos. J. Butler, of the Arizona
Miner, says that Mat Bledsoe is not
dead yet. He was loading mules in
Prescot recently, and seemed to take
great satisfaction in reading his obitu
It is not possible at this time to
say positively what the political com
plexion of the Oregon Assembly will
be, Democratic, however, perhaps,
on joint ballot, but with a Republican
majority in the House.
The gamblers are putting up bets
on the nominations at Cincinati much
after the style of bet& on a horse race.

ED7TOR ASTORIAN :
Having but recently arrived in
your thriving young-old city, and
thinking that a few words in regard
to the eastern standpoint upon the all
absorbing Chinese question might
not come amiss, I drop you this.
I judge that some knowledge of the
sentiments of the Eastern people is
essential in successfully meeting this
issue, as from what I hear, the aid
expected in settling the question is
from Congrestional action and Con
gress is entirely easternin sentiment.
Not knowing any of the iniquities
of the coolie system, and unaware,
also, of the detrimental effects to
white men on the Pacific slope by the
introduction of Chinese labor, the
Eastern people found their opinions
upon the dollar and cents view tak
ing into account cheapness of labor
only. The farmer, in the Mississppi
valley, when harvest crowds upon
him, and hands are scarce, thinks of
the cheapness of Chinese labor and
wishes John Chinamen would come
that way. Looking up the subject in
that light, the eastern man hearing
the distant rumbling of the great up
rising on the Pacific coast in regard
to this nefarious traffic in human
labor j'clept Chinese immigration,
thinks " well that is some remnant of
that old coast institution" Vigilance
Committee, and is not worth con
sidering. This is exactly the feeling
in the East and it is this feeling that
must be met in any petition for ale
viation from Congress. If Congress
does anything it will be when they
are convinced of the necessitv for
action, by the calm and decided
movement of the whole Pacific coast;
backed up by dignity and determin
ation that will carry conviction with
Allow me to digress one moment
from John the Chinaman, to the
more patriotic theme of Fourth of
July celebration. I had the pleasure
of attending the preliminary meet
ing last Saturday evening, and must
say that the enthusiasm evinced was
gratifying. It certainly promises a
rousing celebration which should be
the case on this Centennial 'ear.
Allow me to suggest that your orator
of the day be selected early, and that
he be one of your old citizens, so that
he can prepare a thorough history of
the city of Astoria and Clatsop count'
as a part of his oration, according to
request of the Centennial managers.
