AX UNWELC03IE ASSERTION.
The iconoclasts will not learo a
single cliorislied belief. Not content
with destroying the illusions of an
tiquity and Bottled opinions of later
times, according to cynical statis
ticians who have been rummaging in
the "Washington archives, it is now
alleged that La Fayette, when about
to come to thi3 country and do battle
against tbe minions of tyranny,
niado Silas Deane, the American min
ister at Paris with Ben Franklin, sign
a contract that he should be made a
major-general, and be paid so much a
month from the lime ho left la belle
France If there is any one idea
more than another in regard to our
history firmly fixed in the American
mind, it is that La Fayette, the young,
impulsive, patriotic La Fayette, flew
from France to succor tbe Continent
als, and from the impulses of a noble
nature gave personal and material aid
to tbe infant colonics in theirstruggle
for independence. The documents
now alleged to have been produced
place him in tbe same light as the
Hesinns who came over here to whip
m back into submission, at so much
a day. "We do not believe that La
Fayette story; wo don't want to be-
Jiove it; it is infinitely preferable to
retain the first and moro fragrant
memory; and to picture LaFayette
iS a gallant young Frenchman who
came as did a hundred moro Steuben
and DoKalb from Germany, Kosci-u-jko
from Poland toaid the cause
of liberty, and to fight, and if need
be, to die in her defence.
In the coming congress Texas will
use every effort that a united con
gressional delegation can use to pro
cure an appropriation for the im
provctnent of the Galveston bar. The
same arguments used in that ox
t reme corner of the union apply -with
equal force in this northwestern
section. If anything the need, is
greater for Columbia improvement
The Lone Star stale realizes that con
t titration is necessary, and. the frit
tering away of possible congressional
appropriations in an attempt to pla
eate all portions of the slate is recog
nized as mistake!? policy. There is
an example in this thai Oregon would
do well io imitate.
The New York Tribune advocates
law for the collection of statistics
of the wealth brought to America by
immigrants from the old world. It
thinks we may be getting more gold
into the country from the pockets of
immigrants than from our mines.
In past years 25,000,000 Immigrants
have come to our shores. If they
average $20 hi gold for each person
there is an addition of $500,009,000 to
the country's capital. The income
yearly from this source alone would
perhaps pay the interest on $400,000,
W0 of Ihe public debt
The idols worshipped by the
heathen of Africa and India are near
ly all manufactured in England, and
pay a very handsome profit. It is
slated that the commercial value of
the brass and csst iron gods shipped
to heathen lands far exceeds that of
the Bibles, books and tracts which
reach the same destination.
MiDWLEBunv. Yt, talks of putting

door and window sash by water
Tim rormon apostles own and run
a bank, street railroads, and opera

Central railroad and collect $500,000

Bath continues to be the great
center of shipbuilding in Maine, and.
turns out this year 11 ships, 2 barks,
1 brig, 39 schobneSj 7 sloops and 9
