THE DAILY APPEAL
H. if. Mishels: : Editor. Smaday IftnlBf, Ore. SO. 18 THE TESTJBE 07 OFFICE ACT. Tbe Fame reasons which tailed for ibe passage of the Tenure of Office Act demand its repeal in time to place tbe power of removal in Grant's bands Tbat law was passed in order to pre vent Andrew Johnson from filling the offices which had theretofore been con eidered at the disposal of tbe President, with unrepentant rebels and Copper heads ; bat, as it is apt to be the case with such enactments, it " worked boib waji " and gave Johnson an excuse for retaining in place hundreds of cor rapt end corruptible parasites who, clinging to the administration, have been given tacit license to plunder the revenues and levy black mail upon both citizen and Government. Tbe exist ence of the monstrous " Whisky Ring" has been promoted and strengthened under this bad order of things ; and it becomes necessary to remove tbe hin drances to a salutary exercise of power, caused by this act, by tbe repeal toward which, as we are apprised by tbe tele graph, General Butler has recently moved. ' Sly Policy " being dead, the guards which were wisely placed about it may as wisely be removed ; for the feeling of insecurity awakened by An crew Johnson's attempt to revive tbe political power of tbe Slaveocracy is about to give place to a conviction of the complete trustworthiness of tbe oldier statesman whose motto is " Let us have Peace." XX3I3TEB JOHJTSOS A3 A DEMA GOGUE. Reverdy Johnson's deportment has, fceretofore, been considered simply friv olous and lacking in tbat sober dignity which"is deemed fitting in the conduct of an American Ambassador ; but if be ij correctly reported in late telegrams, he has been guilty of prostituting bis official character to a degree which calls for tbe severest reprehension. Says a cable dispatch of the 16ih in stant : A letter from Reverdy Johnson to the Lon don Workincmrn" Society justifies his friendly intercourse with Laird and other friends of the Southern States bv the ex amples of firant's and Sherman's treatment of rebel officers. If he is guilty of treason so are Grant and Sherman. General Grant has entertained at his own home distin cuished reb'd leaders. He ascribes the at tacks upon him in American newspapers to j WHO DOES JET? DAVIS BELOHG TOt la the spring of 1865 the Government of tbe United States offered a reward of $100,000 for tbe body of Jeff. Davis. One morning a party of cavalrymen discovered tbat precious individual struggling under the restraint of petti- Coat government and took bim prisoner, water backet, crinoline, bonnet, aqua tctita and all. These captivating troop ers thereupon applied for the proffered reward, and here, the other day. it was paid over to them. In tbe meantime Jeff, after being boarded at the expense of tbe Government for two years at Fort Monroe, was bailed out by Horace Greeley and others, was arraigned fori trial, was let off for a time, was ar raigned again and finally allowed to consider himself the recipient of a nolle protequi and permitted to eat English roast beef and plum pudding and lecture tbe Britishers on Jerusalem to his own and their heart's content. Now it seems clear tbat Uncle Sam has a clear bill of sale of the Confederate " President " anyhow, our said uncle has paid a big price for him ; and the question arises as to whether Jeff, belongs to himself, o the profit and loss account of the late Confederacy, or to Uncle Samuel. Metaphorically, Grant hung Jeff and bis scallywag ' government " to a " sour apple tree" at Appomattox; but the "g'j question still remains, Mr. Davis in propria persons, being still in the land of tbe living, Who does be belong to? One thing is very certain, and that is, be was a mighty poor investment at $100,000; and the Government would do well to dispose of him to tbe old do' traffickers of Liverpool at half price. ens perished in the ruins of the buildings. Terrible earthquakes occurred in the State of San Luis Potosi, and had caused several towns to be entirely abandoned. At Picheco over 50 shocks were felt in one day.

The Directors of the Napa Valley Railroai announce that regular trips to Calistoga will be commenced on Tuesday next, the road being completed and a junction with the Valleio road made.

From the Gold Hill News of last evening. CoLtunrs, December 17.

" Helen ' writes piquant'.y and properly to the Revolu tion : To women who hold the theorv that thev are independent, thouiihtful beiitKs able to support themselves, and something more than pets and playthings of men, I have a suoestion to t'ffer. It would be more dismhed, and sound much better in coming before the public, if women would give their Christian names in full, without mhunng them witnany ot tne diminutives that are so fashionable and com mon. Elizabeth is a stately name ; but Liz zie is suggestive of one who is weak and dependeut, however beautiful she mav be. Catharine is beautiful and strong, but Katie. or Kittle ! what a burlesque on the original name. So with all pet or nick-names. Who could imagine Miss Anthony doing so ridicu lous a thiue as to call herself Susie ? Think of Hattie Stove or Magaie Fuller ! One Kansaspapcr had the hardihood to nick-name Mrs. Stanton, Liz, but it produced a tremen dous recoil on the editor s head. How ridi culous would men appear in public or in bus iness life with their names thus belitied. Wouldn't Sandy T. Stewart sound well as a merchant prince ? or Johnnv C. Green or Willie E. Dodge ? True, we can say Andrew Johnson and feel that it is appropriate, but think of Lvssie Urant, or Cumpy fehernun or Phillie Sheridan, or Sammy Chase ! Men d"n't wish their names minced or belittled as if they were babies. Soive us your names in full, ladies ; it will add dignity and strength to all vou say or do.

The cor oner's jury, after investigating the late In these statements anJ conclusions, Minister Johnson is guilty of what is little better than pettifoggery and ab solute untruthfalness. Tbe courteous nod kindly treatment of rebel officers by Grant andJrl.rrmp.n is of a widely dif ferent nature from the American Min ister's cordial reception of an English rebel sympathiser ; and no man who wiebed to deal frankly and sincerely would be gnilty of euch a defense.

Diplomatic courtesy may be all insincerity and empty form ; but its significence is worse than .wasted when so improperly bestowed as in the case of J!it.is:er Johnson's marked at tention to Mr. Laird. When our heavy eating Minister attempts finding favor is tbe eyes of the English Wurkingmeo by bclieing the Republican press of the I'nited States so fur as to misrepresent tuetr course toward him as caused by a feeling of enmity towerd Great Sritain, he merely makes himself contemptible, ft begins to be apparent that the longer Reverdy Johnson remains in ofSce tbe more be contriver lo ratke himself ro eeuible bis namesake cf the White House.

Durir.g the niirht the shock of an earthquake was felt at this estate nr d its vicinity, and it was thought bet to shorten the visit and return to town to ascertain if anv injury had befallen it. On reaching the point where the road crosses the j f summit of the hills, an immense cloud dust overhung the site of the city, and they hastened to reach it with all speed.

One quart taken and placed in a tub the size of a Dilsnel win, wuen aiirren, completely nil the tub with a froth, and the more it is stirred wich the naked hand and arm, the stiffer it becomes, until vou can cut it with a knife. It is eaten with horn or wooden snonns. all the family sitting round the tub. It is undoubtedly an acquired taste, but the commodity is much sought for. 1 he froth is of a beautiful pink color, (jreen berries will make nearlv the same amount of froth. hut it is of a white color and is not so highly flavored. Foreigners stir it with port jr sherry wines, and add sugar, in which ease it is a delicious luxury. Large quantities are dried, by being placed in a tub w ith their leaves, forming a cake, which is placed on wicker tables, with light fires under and the sun overhead. When dried they will keep in a dry place for vears. The dried berries are black and look dirty. A piece two in ches square, beaten in a water pool, will till it full of irotn ot a dark pinK color.
