Oblic mtmotmt FRIDAY. DECEMBER 8, 1871. OUIt CITY ELECTION ! ! DEMQCRACYTRIUMPHANT I ALBANY KEDEEIED ! ! A Democratic Mayer Democratic Ro c order Democratic Treasurer Dem ocratic Majority in tha CouncU. The election last Monday was hotly contested and closely ionght to the very end, bat the Democratic hosts were too many for the enemy, and when the polls were closed Radical ism had received a shock which sent it reeling and despairing from the . arena, with hardly enough of its num ber left unharmed to bury the dead and bear the wounded from the field. It is true that we did not escape unscathed, for a small squadron who contested the battle well and nobly, went down with the great body of the enemy; bnt theirs is a glorious de feat, because their very intrepidity and daring saved the day for Democ racy and left our colors floating over the ensanguined field. List year the Republicans carried the city on their general ticket by an average of 20 majority, although a Democratic Mayor and one Council man were elected, by Republican Totes. Having been so successful at that time, they were fully confident of winning an easy victory this year, and consequently went to the polls with a confident and buoyant air, as though there was no such thing as a Demo cratic party in existence. Imagine their astonishment, then, at finding themselves almost completely annihi Tated when the polls closed after the day's struggle was over. Following is an abstract of the vote Democrats in Italics, Republicans in Roman: Fob Mator A. W. Sxeeeney, 134; J. F. Backensto, 118. Sweeney's ma jority, 16. Fob Recorder Jos. TL Hen-en, 139; E. B. Purdom, 124. Herrens majority, 15. Fob Marshal J. D.May, 103; "Wm. Riley, 147. Riley's majority, 44. Fob Treasurer C. C. Kuhn, 134; Wm. Colwell, 131. Kuhn's majority, 3. Fob Cocxtclmex A. Hackleman 143, A. jParker 1U, G. A. Hill llfi, J. Z. Crouse 12$, Leo Fox 118, C. AT. Cartwright 110, John Conner 92, John Briggs 128, S. E. Young 138, W. H. Kuhn 13G, C. M. Cartwright 136.M.M. Harvey 133. Messrs. Hackleman, Parker and Hill are the Conncilmen elected on the Democratic ticket, and Messrs. Young and Kuhn are the victorious Councilmen on the Republican ticket; and then Charley Cartwright was a candidate on both tickets and of course was elected by an overwhelm ing majority. HE ISIHAEDLY A DEMOCRAT. The Oregonian publishes a long letter abusive of Hon. Jaa. H. Slater, purporting to come from Eastern Or egon, and says it was written by a Democrat. The writer of the letter, after heaping much doggerel abuse upon Mr. Slater, says : "Bnt, then, it is no quarrel of ours, only so far as the natural pride of cit izens is concerned. In this regard, however, Republicans as well as Dem ocrats have an interest at stake." Now isn't the above rather singu lar langug3ge for a Democrat to use ? But tor what the Oregonian asserts one would naturally suppose that its correspondent was a Black Republi can, who had no interest in the Dem ocratic tight in Eastern Oregon, "only so far as the natural pride of a citi zen is concerned." We opine the Oregonian has got its correspondent's politics rather mixed. Such "Demo cratic" letters as that won't wash up this way. ' As Affecting Scene. The Jack sonville Sentinel of last Saturday says that Miss Hannah Ralls, upon the trial of her father for assaulting J. D. Fay with a dangerous weapon, gave a full statement, under oath, of her se duction, her flight from the house, and her extreme suffering in the cold from early in the morning until found late in the afternoon. She gave her evidence slowly and calmly, without showing the least vindictiveness or anger. Her statement brought moist nre to the eyes of many in the crowd ed Court House, and carried convic tion of the truthfulness of what she stated, to every unprejudiced mind, This evidence was admitted for the purpose of,' showing what an over whelming weight of mental suffering the defendant's mind must have been under, upon hearing of the ruin of his family by the prosecuting witness. The great Maee-Cobern , fistcuff, which came off near New Orleans last Thursday, lasted 4 hours and was & drawn' fight. Coburn seemed to hara tha better of hU antagonist, but toe pummulUng was ireak on jxth sides, and neither was badly A QUESTION 0? VERACITY. As a general r,ulo "one good turn deserves another," and when the Ore gonian a few days' ago took occasion to allude to the State Rights Demo crat as a paper of the highest re spectability truthful, dignified, cour teous, and all that we hoped to be able to always puff our cosmopolitan ueighbor in the same way- in fact we expected to immediately propose to associate the two papers into a "mu tual admiration society;" but we find that journal so persistently departing from all of our preconceived ideas of " fairness and respectability " that we have abandoned the hope of a high toned coalition with it and have con cluded to let it remain in the common gutter of debauched journalism. While it is expected that that pa per, in the interests of its own party will resort to all means, however questionable in propriety or fairness, to secure a partiznn advantage, yet we were hrnlly prepared to see it fulmi nate so glaring, palpable and inexcus able a falsehood as that in its issue of last Monday, wherein it states that Gov. Grover, from 1S61-2, never came squarely to the front and identi fied himself with the Democratic party or participated in its councils till 1870. Now we personally know nothing of Oregon politics previous to 1866, but we recollect that during the cam paign of that year Gov. Grover was an active champion of the Democrat ic cause, and made speeches in vari ous places during the progress of the struggle. The Oregonian can certain ly not have forgotten Gov. Grover's speeches before the Oro Fino Demo cratic Club in Portland, or his con- j test with Dave Logan at a Yamhill I town on the eve of the election of 1SR6, nor how he met other Radical speak ers during that campaign. The Ore gonian surely has not forgotten that Grover was Chairman of the Demo cratic State Central Committee con tinuously during the past six or eight years, and by virtue of that position has been at the head of the Democrat ic councils daring the whole of that time. But it is difficult to shame a journal into truth which would so glaringly misrepresent facts that are of such public record as those of which we speak, hence to further dis cuss the subject would be to dignify falsehoods which are known as such throughout our whole commonwealth. Tammantin MfLTXOMAn. Mrs. Duniway, in the Xew Xbrthiccd, thus prods up the Radical officials of Mult nomah county, who have been imitat ing the theivery of Tammany for the past year : The Grand Jury Report shows that the expenditures of Multnomah coun ty for the fiscal year are near $9,600 in excess of those for 187 J ; or, to be exact, the sura of $43,592 24 sufficed for 1870, against 8o4,475 32J for 1871 an increase of $S,SS3 07 . It can not reasonably be claimed that the in flux of population or growth of crime accounts for this greatly increased ex pense. Indeed, it can be verv readily accounted for otherwise. The Re port before referred to shows that $2,100 have been allowed the County Clerk and Sheriff SOOtf to the former officer and $1,500 to the latter in a manner not contemplated bv law. So here is $2,1U0 of the people's mon ey surreptitiously appropriated by by our lucre-loviug public servants accounted for at a single dash of the pen. Were the salaries of Clerk and Sheriff of 3Iultnnomah meager there might be a shadow of excuse for such questionable transactions; but on the contrary it is notorious that both these offices have almost princely in comes. 1 artisan malice couia nave had nothing to do with the Report, as a majority of the members of the Grand Jury were Republicans. At the recent election for members of the Legislature in Mississippi the Democrats caried twenty-three coun ties, which in either 1869 or 1870 gave Radical majorities. In one county Adams which is hopelessly black, the Democrats generally ab stained from voting, as their exercise of that franchise would have availed their candidates for the Legislature nothing. Next year, at the, Presi dential election, every Democrat who can get to the polls will vote, and the Democratic Presidential nominee will pet the electoral vote of the redeemed State. NEWSPAPER Change. T. Patter son & Co. have sold the Oregon Her ald to" an association of Democrats who will hereafter publish" it. We believe CoL Taylor is one of the new association and will still remain as editor. Long may the Herald re main under the editorial management of so able a Democratic writer as Col. Taylor. "Five years ago," remarks the Phil adelphia Court Journal, "we fought the Democracy, with the spelling book, and whipped them. This year our weapon is the arithmetic, and is just as deadly." To which the Cin cinnati Enquirer responds: , "Precise ly. It is bard to beat your arithmetic when there are divisions in our own ranks; when additions are ruade to yonr party by the use of the bayonet; when your uotes are multiplied by re peaters and revolvers, and our baliots are subtracted from the box by ras cally judges," Afteb all tha tremendous outcry against the .Tammany Ring, it turns out that they, have stolen bnt $19, 519,536 ! ; What are we to think of folks who make a fuss about each a contemptible sum as that? . .
