The Salem Rbiord says that an oak tree
ha3 been discovered near that place, which,
in its slow and patient growth has enveloped
the antlers of a deer. Perhaps in those
olden times, when the native tiwash had it
fill his own way 4t may be it was a century
since an Indian killed a deer and placed
jthe antlered skull in the tree fork. Slowly
the wood feis clof el over the trophy, ' until
at the present time its existence is only de
noted by a U-w tines, whose points protrude
a few inches bet, will gradually disappear
as the passing years , wrap fresh circles of
the brave old oak around them. -
Ramie Fibes. - A, new article of commerce

the wearer will r4 that the chief diSculty
will be it will not wear out when the fashion
changes, and he n ill hate to throw it away,
when, after a cocple cf years', wear, it is
still as good as near." This cloth will cer
tainly be cf greil ;bcae5t to that noble and
suCering people.-
"We have for somo weeks past been
flying at our mast-head tho namo of
this distinguished Democrat and no
ble patriot, as our choice for the Pres
idency. The State Democratic Con
vention at Portland endorsed hira and
instructed for htm, and ho is undoubt
edly tho choice of tho Democracy of
Oregon and of tho entire West. The
signs of the times, also, so far as we
arj capable of reading them, point to
his nomination by tho National Dem
ocratic Convention, which assembles
at New York City on next Independ
ence Day. Mr. Pendleton was a mem
ber of tho thirty-fifth Congress, from
Ohio, and continued in the IIouso un
til ho was nominated for tho Vice-
Presidency, in 1804. His record in
Congress is clear, patriotic, statesman
like, and consistent, whilo his person
al character and gentlemanly bearing
were always of tho highest an I most
commendable order. Always courte
ous, and never abusive ; ever argu
mentative, eloquent and impassioned,
his words always commanded atten
tion, and his bearing respect even
irom ins ouieresi political opponents.
Ho has ever been, since he first enter
ed political life, a favorito with his
party and tho people ; but it is on
the financial questions that have
sprung up and assumed such gigantic
shapes since tho close of tho war, that
Mr. Pendleton has struck the popular
chord, and endeared himself to the
great mass of tho tax-payers of the
country. His speeches last year, in
Ohio and other States, have develop
ed the repulsiveness of the bondhold
ers' claim, and enlightened the people
as to the most feasible plan of paying
off the public debt and releasing
them from tho burden of enormous
annual taxes. His views upon the
questionat first ridiculed and mis
represented have now becorao one of
the most popular planks in tho great
Democratic party, and have been re
cently endorsed by State Constitu
tions of both parties, and by all the
leading men of the -West. A higher
compliment to Mr. Pendleton's j&tates-
manship, sagacity and financial abili
ty can scarcely be conceived.
The tax-payers of the West will be
able to appreciate tho wisdom of 3Ir.
Pendleton's plan, when they remem
ber that his proposal to pay the debt,
when carried into effect will place
two thousand millions of dollars of
untaxed wealth upon the tax books,
and compel it hereafter to pay its
equitable share of city, county, State
and national liabilities.- -
In this view of the case, we confi
dently hope and believe that Mr. Pen
dleton will bo selected as our stan
dard-bearer We hope it because we
believe he can win, and we believe it
because he is the expressed choice of
a large majority of the Democratic
voters of the country. The West is
all for him. Every State west of
Lake Erie has declared for him ; Ken
tucky and Tennessee are for him;
Maryland is for him; Maine is for
him ; all the South will be for him.
So far as our advices go, only New
York, Pennsylvania and five of the
New England States will be against
him, and some of them will be divided
in the -Convention ; and, aside from
all this, so great is the public feclin
regarding taxation and the public
debt, so anxious are the people to es
cape from the crushing weight of their
financial embarrassments, and so ably
and clearly has he shown them a way
out of their labarynth of difficulties,
that the delegates hardly dare venture
to go back on the clamorings and cries
of an oppressed and tax-ridden pco
pie for his nomination. How deeply
the shrewdest of the Republican lead
crs are impressed by the silent move
ment toward him among their own
supporters, is evident from the resolu
tions of the Indiana Republican Con
vention last spring, and from the bill
recently introduced in Congress by
Senator Sherman of Ohio. They are
attempting to regain somo of the
ground which Pendleton has won from
them. Their hopes are futile ; and
whether Mr. Pendleton is nominated
or not, they may as well abondon the
attempt to beat the Democracy but of
a policy which is emphatically their
own, and which emenated from the
fertile brain of one; of Democracy's
brighest and purest statesmen Geo.

a son of Perry Watson, of Independence, a
lad about 15 years old, was assaulted with a
club-' by a; young man" named Shepherd,
breaking the boy's arm and otherwise injur

Our Republican friends think it is
poesible that tho Democracy will bo
ictorious in tho Presidential tourna-
ment, and they want to know: what
wo will do if wo get into power. Wo
reply in brief: If tho great re-action
which is going on all over tho North
will, without doubt, recover tho conn-
try from the perilous and distracted
condition it is now in. Wo will re-
storo law and order; wo will cause
tho Constitution to bo respected and
maKO taxes equal, ana tax the rich as
. . .. i
well as tho poor tho bondholder as
i,i - .n

statesmen who founded it designed it
will do as soon as they have the pow

them that power as fast as there is
any opportunity for legally doing so.

"Equality- of Taxation.- Tho Cin.
cinuati Commercial (Republican) says the
people think more of the equality of tax

thinks the present political aspect is not
very .encouraging to the Radicals. H It
says: The issues which the Republicans
have of late made in the Northern elections
have either been carried by greatly re
duced majorities, or have been decided
against theme Ohio, by forty thqusans

That the mother of Commonwealthsr
old Virginia, great yet in her adversi
ty, is to recuperate, rise up and pros
per in the future, there is no doubt.
Her natural alvantages aro immense ;
in climate, location and resources she
is not excelled. Her products aro va
ried and her lands attractive. Emi
gration is going into her borders, not
only from tho North, from Pennsyl
vania especially, as we have noted
heretofore, but also from the South.-
An exchange rays 5 : u ,
The Virginia newspapers indicate
a movement on the part of South Car
olinians and residents of other South
ern States to remove northward, with
tho view of escaping negro suprema
cy. In Viminia thev find the whites
already in the ascendancy, and plant
arc on foot which point to large " ac
cessions of population in that State ,
from Southern sources. .The great ob
stacle to migration on an extensive
scale is inability to sell where they
are and to buy where they propose to- ;
go. Partly to meet this difficulty, ef
forts appear to be making in Virginia?
to induce the ofler of liberal terms by
landed proprietors; and these efforts
are not unsuccessful, if we may judge
by the reported arrivals of new set
tlers from points further South :;v
Think ovxe it. Whilo the honest
farmer, says an exchange, is d;ing with
out many of the luxuries aod even com
forts of home, to husband his meanf to
purchase the absolute necessaries and pay
his taxes, the high caucus of impeach .
ment is drawing annually $164,000 in
such "stationery" as the following s
Pantaloons, shirts, sharing-soap, alcahol,
bay rum, corkscrews, lemon-squeezers,
cologne, lemons, sugar, toilet powder, kid
gloves, etc. These are important articles
in "Loil" reconstruction! Think of
this, plain farmers of the Northwest.
Tho followiotr is the neatest wav to
tell the public that a man is drunk, cn

-The General's face is a study to me, al-
ways wearing tut iou 01 paiD, as II an
invisible world pressed him down from
