FRIDAY DECEMBER 15, 1871.
BESTIAL Oor Portland exchanges last week contained a detailed account of v ic- toria Woodhull'B recent lecture de livered in New York City, but the utterances therein contained are so utterly at variance with common de cency that we refrain from giving them an airing through our columns believing, as we do,' that neither the family circle nor society at large can receive any benefit from their perusal. The lecture was freighted with the most nauseating and blas phemous propositions which the fer tile brain and corrupt heart of the Woodhull could devise, and the lan- PEE3EDENTS MESSAGE As this document has arrived too late for publication in lull this week we can only find space for a brief synopsis of its main features. The President starts out with flat tering himself and the world at large that he has successfully executed all the laws found upon the statute books, without inquiring into their wisdom. After next telling us about the gener al prosperity of our country, as well as the terrible calamaties by fire and flood during the past year, - he felici tates the people upon the successful labors of the Joint High Commission in forming a treaty between Britain and America and urges upon Congress the early settlement of the boundary line between the United States and British North America. He briefly alludes to our friendly relation with iruaire used cannot fail to shock the more decent and sensitive class of Germany, and says he has officially iHsonle. The doctrine therein pro- recognized the removal of tho Italian K . mulgated goes farther and descends deeper into the 6lough of free lust than we have before heard of ema nating from the lowest class of "fre e lovers." It is not only sickening in its vile platitudes but insulting tqall Christendom in its false, hell-inspired charges and insinuations against Sa cred Writ and the teachings of our Capital to Rome and the annexation of the States of the Church to the Kingdoijf of Italy. He pats the Rus sian Prince on the back for coming to see him, and gives the retiring Rus sian Minister, Catacazy, a prod in the rear, '-just for luck." He says our re lations with Japan are intimate and hopes they will remain so as also with China. He is satisfied with the Inwlv Savior. It is a fearful ex em- linWion ot the debasing influences punishment which the U. S. troops in Arw1t !. railed the "woman move- flicte1 "PQ the Koreans, but is offend- ment" which is really a "flauk move ment" of the devil to secure a fresh footing in those sacred places where he has for the past few ? centuries found his influences and teachings losing caste. It is assaulting the very citadel of the heaven-ordained marital relation and is attacking hu inanity in its weakest spots ; and it is strange that the publication of such indecent utterances can be tolerated in communities which claim to be civ llized, christianized and virtuous. How the South is Kc-Kluxed. A series of enormous outrages were recently perpetrated on some of the respectable citizens of Union county, S. C, by persons belonging to the army. A number of business men were placed in durance vile on the charsre of beinar Ku-Kluxed. After locking them up, some drunken Unit ed States officers and soldiers proceed ed to the houses of their prisoners, and, under the plea of searching for the identical men who were al ready incarcerated, they entered the rooms of the ladies, making sad havoc among fine dresses and toilet articles. The most indecent language was used toward the females, both by officers and soldiers, and a large amount of property was stolen. On the morn ing following the commandant of the post dismissed the prisoners, as no charges could be brought against them. After their release, the author ities stated that it was "only a drunk- n spree," and a notice was sent to ! ed with Mexico becauso she doesn't repeal the laws establishing a free zone on the irontier oi tne united States. We are at peace with South America, and he is glad Brazil is emancipating her slaves. He urges upon Congress stringent legislation to prevent citizens of the United States from owning slaves in tho West In dies or wherever else slavery is rec ognized. In relation to the Spanish- Cuban war he says our naval com manders in Cuban waters have been instructed, in case it should become necessary, to spare no effort to pro tect the lives and property of bona fide American citizens, and to main tain the dignity of the flajr. He wants Congress to make an appropri ation to educate four American youth in japan ana imna, to act as in terpreters between our country an those two. He also recommends subsidies for steamship lines between San Francisco, Japan, China and Aus tralia. He says the National debt has been reduced to the extent of $86,057,126 80 during the year, and by the negotiation of National bonds at a lower rate of interest, the inter est on the public debt has been so far diminished that now the sum to be raised for interest account is nearly seventeen million of dollars less than on the 1st of 3Iarch, 18G9. He reo ommends a modification of both the Tariff and Internal tax laws. He urges that all taxes from internal sources be abolished, except those on spirituous, vinous and malt liquors, PACIFIC COASTERS. the publisher of the Unionville Times it(j vuiom form8 and from that, if he dared to publish anything in regard to the affair, they would fire the town and swing him to a post. The Town Council have taken the matter in hand, and the evidence, duly sworn to, has been printed in pam- stamps. lie wants greenbacks put on a par with specie and a stop put to gold speculations. After making some unimportant suggestions in re gard to the array and navy, he al ludes to the enlarged receipts of the phlet form and forwarded to Attor- Pogtal Department, and the ney-General Akerman. country that this is the index of the growth of education and of the pros perity of the people, two elements highly conducive to the vigor and stability of republics ; he also urges the necessary legislation to unite the telegraph and postal system of the country. He attempts to palliate his enforcement of the barbarous Ku-Klux law and suspension of the habeas cor- Impeachmext. A Washington telegram asserts that a scheme is on foot for the impeachment of Presi dent Grant. The subject was under consideration in the Democratic Con gressional Committee on Friday last, and will be further pursued at the meeting next Wednesday. It is be lieved that Montgomery Blair is at the bottom of it. The main charge Pu" the South by a recital of the re- will be for violation of international ported outrages, and then tells us that law. nsnrnation of war nower and " in Utah there still remains a rem connection with the attempted annex nant of barbarism repugnant to civ- ation of San Domingo. That Grant illation, decency and the law of the should be impeached for high crimes United States," which he says will not and misdemeanor there is not a shad- be further tolerated. He recommends ow of doubt; but that this rumor has liberal appropriations to carry out the emanated in the fertile brain of some Indian policy and suggests the grant sensation reporter of the New York 'mg of a Territorial Government to Herald, we are fully persuaded.

He recommends that the pub lic lands be regarded as a heritage to our children, to be disposed of only as required for occupation and to act ual settlers. He says that the Acrri- v wc x. -v,.

That Hoxest Party. The steal ings of the Bads don't pan out very well this week, and we onlyiiave two to report, viz: F. A. Mardon, Chief of the Pen sion Accounts, at Washington, is con sent with the modest steal of $12, O00; but Mr. Marcus, a high-toned Sadical and City Treasurer of Phila delphia, thrusts his fists deep into the .money bags of that city and abstracts Ihe magnificent sum of 6300,000, which -will enable him to purchase he prayers of some Lojal preacher and the clemency of the' Joyal law enforcers: ; ' .;? Oh, Radicalism ! thou .art a jewel of reatpreeJ i Business in Mexico is entirely sus pended because of the -Revolution, foreign countries. He thinks public officials are not paid enough and rec ommends the increase ot salaries. He recommends the removal of disa bilities from the people of the South under the 14th Amcndntentjas he" no longer sees the necessity or propriety of such disabilities. He commends the Territorial Government of the District of Columbia and recommends liberal appropriations by Congress for the improvement of Washington City. He urges the purchase of real estate and the erection of new Government buildings in Chicago ; also the enact ment of laws to protect foreign im migration against impositions prac ticed upon them by designing persons. He says a civil service reform to cor rect abuses arising from the dishon esty or incompetency of public serv ants is also desired. He has appoint ed a Board of Civil Service Reform Commissioners who will report at an early day. He concludes bis Mess age by expressing the hope that Con gressional legislation "will be wise, statesmanlike and in the best interests of the whole people." Wheat in San Francisco, f 2 CO.

The following appointments of Postmasters in Oregon have been re cently made: H. Goff, El Dorado; Baker coun ty; W. P. Watson, Hood River, Wasco county; A. L.

A tree fell on a dwelling house, at Hereford Swamp, on the Olympia and Ealama stage road, killing the owner of the house and his two chil dren and crushing the house into splinters. The three bodies were ta ken from the ruins horribly crushed into an undistinguishable mass of blool, bones and flesh. It is the most heart-rending event that has ev er occurred in that vicinity. Among the many reasons given by the weather prophets who foretell a hard winter ahead, are these: The wild animals have unusually heavy fur this fall; beaver and muskratsare building their houses very thiok, and are laying in a large stock of provis ions for winter; moss grows very thick on the trees; hogs have thick melts, and ducks and geese have un usually thick coats of feathers, ' A BEVTEE EXC0EIATI02T. Tlie New York Sun, one of the oldest Republican papers of the day. in speaking of the chances of Grant's re election says: It is certain that Grant, if nominated, would fail to receive the support of the best and ablest men in the Republican party. The .popular ity he attained through his military achievements has been utterly destroy ed by the discovery that ho is not only unfit to discharge the high duties that have devolved upon liirn in h civil capacity, but that his personal characteristics are such as to give of fense to all decent people. His law less favortteism, his excessive lovo of moucy, and his bestowal of high o di ces for presents ; his abject truckling before the rich and powerful, and his supercilious contempt for thu masses who have placed him in power; his ai rogant disregard of legal restrictions; his encouragement of bribe-taking; his suspicious connection with the money-getting schemes of disreputa bio speculators and adventurers; his support of tho slave-traders of Cuba against the patriots who are struggling for their own freedom and that of half a million of enslaved Africans; his disgraceful and illegal action in placing tho commanders of American ships of war under tho orders of the mongrel impostor Bacz, and his gen eral recklessness and incompetency have ail combined to produce a revul sion in public feeling which will make itself manifest at the proper time in a most cfl'ectiittl manner. The ablest of Republican statesmen feel the deep humiliation of serving under a Presi dent of so low an intellectual grade ; while the great mass of tho intelligent people of America are ashamed to see the highest office in the nation filled by a man who is so dull that to save his life he could not write a common place formal Thanksgiving prociama tion in good English, and whose pov erty of ideas is such 'that he cannot make a speech of three sentences with out rendering himself an object of derision.

It is thought a few of them only will be able to got out, and by far the great- To Ocu LEfSisLATOits. The eye's of the State will be upon the Legisla ture that assemble at Sacramento next week. Don't drink it is the bane of legislation. Governor Brown of Missouri recently announced, in letter which has been published, that when he became Governor he made up his mind not " to uxe anything in tue shape ot alcoholic drinks." He has stuck to the rule, and he means to maintain the same attitude a per fectly perpendicular one "so long as he may bu charged with any adtmnis . a w iration oi public anairs. lie means in this matter " to stand 'above sus picion, and above even malignity." .Let our .legislators follow the exam pie of Governor Brown, and at the conclusion of their labors our legisla tors will leave a record behind them of which they may be proud. The New York Tribune thinks that a simi lar resolution made by all public men, with reasonable assurance that it would not be broken, would go a great way toward increasing tho confidence of tho people in their servants. We think that we are 'justified in saying that tne enect in V aghington would be at once magical and gratifying. San Francisco Cirotiicle. Ma-TTIal Law Preferred. The Galveston News says, shat " in conse quence of their defeat, the Radicals are moving heaven and earth to have Texas relegated to military rule :" and it remarks that " while this would be a breach of faith by Congress, and an invasion of American liberty, still, if there is no choice except continuing the present plundering and murder ing administration in office and a fed eral military rule, give us the latter a thousand times." Martial law was once considered the harshest of all rule ; but it seems, from this, that-the civil rule of Radi calism is somewhat a thousand times worse. When the government pro vided by congregss tor iexas is so oppressive and infamous that the peo ple ask for military rule, as a relief, it ? . j . t . t i i . is a question ior me wnoie peopie 10 consider, whether the policy which establishes such governments ought not to be overthrown before it pro duces thfc,ame - fruits - elsewhere that it has produced in Texas. The Democratic party in the con tests of the current year has cast more votes in comparison with those thrown by the Republicans than it has done at any election for the past ten years. And yet. many so-called Democrats want it to abandon its name and lose its identity by the adoption of a "passive policy." The women's rights women of Washington Territory resolve that they will cut off their husbands' ra tions of "wittels" if they vote forany man who is opposed to their hobby. Many ladies have ruined the shape of their ears by wearing heavy, mas sive ear-rings, which not only spoil the shape of the ear by elongating it, but also product headache and pains in the fJce.
