The question of subsidizing railroad cor porations is not likely to figure in the coming compaign in this State, as both parties will take decided grounds against it. There are, however, other important subjects to be decided in September. The question of revenue reform in our State and county affairs will come up in a prac tical form, and the Republican party will not attempt to evade the issue. State and county taxes arc enormously high, and the people arc anxious to be relieved from a portion of this grievous buden. A system of economy and retrenchment must be inaugurated. The Democracy made the most solemn promises of reform four years ago, and upon the stiength of the pledges then given they elected the Governor and a majority in the lower house of the Leg islature. The Sonate, however, remained Republican and forced the passage of a salary law, which, if it had been allowed to go into effect, would have relieved the people of a heavy and unnecessary load of taxation. Under the pressure of public sentiment Governor Haight signed the bill; but before this salutary law could go into operation the Democracy had control of both branches of the Legislature, and the salary bill was promptly repealed. Not only this, but in nearly every Democratic county the salaries were increased above the old standard. Here we have a fair illustration of Democratic “reform.” The people know from experience that there is no hope for a reduction of taxation under Democratic rule. On the contrary they may expect that salaries will be further increased and new offices created if that party continues in power. Democratic success will be an indorsement of the ex travagance of the last legislature, and tax payers will have only themselves to blame if they do not war against the spoilsmen and reduce the princely salaries of most of the county officials. Many of the latter enjoy an income exceeding that of a Con gressman, Supreme Judge cr Cabinet offi cer. So far as remuneration is concerned, the Governor of the State could well afford to cxcl angc places with a Sheriff or County Clerk. These high salaries in many cases be come a corruption fund, by means of which primary elections are carried, conventions manipulated, undeserving and dishonest men elected to office, and the will of the people defeated at the polls. Deprive them of a measure of the spoils wrung from the (tcople as fees and salaries, and wo will have better officers, a more rigid enforcement of the laws, and a greater de gree of prosperity generally than the State now enjoys. Democratic editors arc fond of denounc ing what they term the enormous taxation exacted by the General Government, but they say never a word about the burdens of state and county taxation.—Petaluma Argus. Competent Witness.— William Look! Tell ns, William, who made you?” William, who was considered a fool, screw ed up his face and looking thoughtful and somewhat bewildered, answered : “Moses, I s’pose !” “That will do,”, said Counselor Grey, addressing the court. “The witness says he supposes Moses made him ; that is an intelli gent answer, more than I thought him cap able of giving, for it shows that be has some faint idea of Scripture. I submit that it is not sufficient to entitle him to bo sworn as a witness capable of giving evidence.” “Mr. Judge,” said the fool, “may I ax the lawyer a question?” “Certainly,” said the Judge. “Well, then, Mr. Lawyer, who d’ye s’pose made you?” “Aaron, I s’pose,” said Counselor Uiey, imitating the witness. After the mirth had somewhat subsided, the witness drawled out; “Wall, ne-wo, we do read in the Book that Aaron once made a calf, but who'd a thought the darned critter had got in here !” Tqe Judge ordered the man to he sworn. Tue Law and Order Partv. —The Democ ratic parly seeks to place do obstacle in the way of suppressing any and nil lawless bands of men which may at any time infest any scetiuu of the country —[Sacramcuto Reporter. The above is utterly inconsistent with the facts of history, as every intelligent man knows full well. The Democratic party placed every obstacle it could bring forward in the way of suppressing the rebellion. It opposed each and every measure designed to put down the “lawless bands” that attemp ted to destroy the Government in 1861, end persisted in the attempt until Lee surrender ed at Appomattox. And the same party to day is bitterly opposed to all legislation hav ing for its object the suppression of the Ku Klux of the South. • Petal uma Journal The Germans are becoming anxious about their indemnity. France has not yet paid a dollar, and if the government and tbe insol vents continue fighting, tbe result may be similar to that attained by tbe Kilkenny cats, who are said to have left no personal estate for their executors to administer. The merchants of Monterey sell shells gathered from the beach in that place. THE CLAIMS OF SUMNER AND GRANT. The Nation never loses its self-possession. On the removal of Sumner it says : His friends, who arc just now engaged in praising him aud in claiming indulgence for his faults of temper and his mistakes, on account of his past services to the country, would do well to remember that General Grant has some claims of the same nature to indulgence and forbearance. It may be that he owes his place in the White House in some degree to -Mr. Sumner’s fidelity to the principles of the Republican party ; but it is equally safe to safe to say that Mr. Sumner owes his place in the Senate in some degree to General Grant. The question whether there should bo any Senate for Mr Sumner to sit in was very hotly debated about sis years ago, and we believe the stout manner in which General Grant maintained the affirmative had much to do with the result. We are as fully alive to Grant's official faults as anybody, but when his claims to national gratitude come to be compared with those of any other man, we honestly confess we are over powered by the display he makes. A Republican Judas of more than or dinary infamy has been developed in the New York Legislature. His name is Orange S. Winans and he represents Chautauqua county in the Assembly. 'J he two political parties in that branch of the Legislature were evenly divided, ami true to their instincts and custom the Democracy looked around among the Re publicans to see if they could find one so weak or so infamous as to sell himself. It appears that they succeeded, and that this man Winans is the Judas. The price paid is variously reported. One account places it at $65,000 cash, another 850,000 and a five years position at 85,000 a year on the Erie Railroad, and the lowest at 825,000 cash and the position. Winans has for a long time been an employee of the Erie Company, and after doing the dirty work of Jim K'sk, Jr., it is not sur prising that he should readily agree to any infamous proposal. The Republican party loses nothing through the rascality of Winans, but the people of New York will have to suffer through the success of the infamous schemes of Bill Tweed, Jim Fisk Jr., and that ilk, which is rendered certain with Winans’ vote. —[Marysville Appeal. He Couldn’t Tell a Lie. —Alfred Burnett, in one of his letters to “The Peo ple,” of Indianapolis, relates the following anecdote: “By the by, a good story is told of Ben. Butler and his notorious honesty. A short time since, Ben. Butler and Wendell Phil lips had business with the President, and, arm in-arm, proceeded to call upon him.— The President was busy, and sent word that he would see them presently. Phil lips and Butler strolled into the conserva tory, in the rear of the white House, thence into the garden. Butler and Phillips wore engaged in an animated conversation upon some topic. Butler became slightly excit ed. A large hatchet belonging to the gar dener, was beside a tree; Butler casually picked it up, and while talking, he made several deep gashes with it into some of Gen. Grant’s favorite trees. Just at this juncture, the President appearing, Butler hastily secreted it under his coat tails. “After the compliments of the day, the President spied for the first time his muti lated tree, and with, tones of vehemence, inquired who had been cutting and gashing the tree? After a few moments’ pause, Butler stepped bravely up to the President, and took him by the hand, saying, “Mr. President, I cannot tell a lie; I cannot tell a lie; Wendell Phillips did it I” Women Should Read Newspapers. It is a great mistake in female education, says the Termini, to keep a young lady’s time amt attention devoted only to the fash ionable literature of the day. If you would qualify her for conversation, you must give her something to talk about, give her edu cation in the actual world and its trans piring events. Urge her to read the news papers, and become familiar with the present character and improvements of our age. History is of some importance; but the past world is dead ; we have nothing to do with it. Our thoughts and our con cerns should be for the present world ; to know what it is and improve its condition. Let her have an intelligent opinion, aud be able to sustain conversation according to the mental, moral and religious improve ment of our times. The San Jose Patriot says : “Public opinion here is very out-s|K)ken and unequivocal in favor of Selby as the nominee, while there is also an equally well pronounced determiuatioh on the part of Republicans to support any good man the State Republican Convention may nominate.” The Russian River Flag says : “The choice of the Republican party for the Governorship now seems to lie between Mayor Selby of San Francisco and Newton Booth of Sacramento. We believe the party will be well satisfied with either, aud that odds will be in favor of the election ot either over the Democratic nominee, who ever that may prove to be. Our own pre ference for Governor is Selby.’ It is asserted that a marriage has been arranged between Cadet Grant and Miss Kitty Felt, of Galena. NUMBER 6, DIHI'.R. The Examiner thinks the workingmen should not have a party of their own, nor should they, in its opinion, vote anywhere but with (he Democracy—and having so said in its acknowledgement ol the recep tion of the Industrial Keformer, that jour nal conies back at the Examiner, thus; “- he imlustiial classes are tired of being made a mere cats-paw in the control of de signing demagogues, and bowing in sub mission to (he arrogant dictation of mere party leaders fishing fi r their vote. It is high time that the order of affairs which has been so long and tamely submitted to was reversed, and, instead of running after played out partisan hacks, let the two prominent parlies unite with them in the accomplishment of the reforms for which they are contending” Aim at Something. Multitudes of nun realize nothin" be cause they devise nothin"—perfect noth ing because they project nothing. ‘•They simply float on the surface ot the occasion, and trust to the sublimity of luck.” Mi eawbcrliko, they are “waiting for some thing to turn up ” lie is a most unreasonable man who ex pects to achieve, by accide'nt, that which every successful man gains, only, of set purpose. He is more unreasonable who enters a hill of indictment against Fortune, for being so hard with him, when he is so hard with himself. He upbraids poor blind Fortune, because she docs not come and heap upon his head a lap-full of good things, while, really, he does not a single good thing for himself. A marksman will tell you, that if you would hit the target you must aim at it No random shots are expected to “drive the cross”—it will not happen once in a million of chances, especially if there be no idea of the direction in which it lies. Yet there are thousands of good, easy people— credulous, sanguine souls—who expect to hit the mark, not only without taking aim, but without shooting at all. We should say that with this class of persons there is an overgrowth of hope. They have been indulging high hopes all their lifetime, and have not realized one of them. Is it not strange that they donut grow weary of their vain hopes and try some other expedient? The truth is, we suspect, they have reached the conclusion that it is easier to hope than work. In their present, aimless, do-nothing calling, the outlay is but little or nothing, and al though the income be nolbing, it is pretty good, considering that tbeic is no invest ment, and no risk at all, except the risk of a light disappointment. That’s the Kini>.—A spirited Min nesota girl dismissed her lover on learning that he gave her father a drink of whisky. That’s the kind. If all the girls in the land would go and do likewise, our coun try would be cursed with fewer young men, who by their drinking habits, have ruined themselves, and may be the means of breaking many fond and loving hearts. It is within the power of every woman, particularly every young and unmarried one, to wield a mighty influence on the side of right, against the demoralizing and degrading usages of society, if she only so wills it; and she is not true to her own and the best interests of her race if she docs not wield that influence. It is a ques tion involving the happiness of millions, and no half way measures will meet the case. Prompt, decided, cneigetic action is called for. We reccomend the action of the Minnesota girl. HIM FRIENDSHIP KOU CHINESE. In January, 185 J, at the conclusion of a lecture on China, delivered in that city by Rev. Mr. Speer, the lion. 11.11. Haight, the present Governor of this State, offered a set of resolutions, which were unani mously adopted by a large and influential meeting. Here are the resolutions intro duced by Governor Haight, the present leading candidate of the Dobiocratit party. ‘ Re oh' /!) That the present position of the Oriental nations is fraught with the most profound interest to the world, and that we, as citizens of California, placed by the wonderful leadings of Providence so immediately in contact with one of the most ancient, intelligent and populous of these nations, hail with peculiar satisfac tion the signs of the times; and that we feel an imperative obligation to employ our money, our influence and utmost efforts for the welfare of that vast portion of the human family —our chirr brethren —the people of China. “ R. solved, That we regard with pleas ure the presence of great numbers of these people among us —.'gain, when the Hurlingame mission from China were in San Francisco, on their way eastward, a banquet was given in their honor, at which Governor Haight delivered the following remackable speech, showing that up to that time his views on the Chinese question bad undergone no change. Governor Haight then said: “As the chief magistrate of this State, 1 welcome you to this city. You have f.c cepted a mission iu the interest of progress, of commerce and of humanity. 1 bid yon on behalf of this nation, on behalf of Europe on behalf of humanity itself, a hearty welcome and God speed." It is said that fully one third more grain I has been sown in .Southern Oregon this season than ever before.
