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 !

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

longer sees the necessity or propriety
of such disabilities. He commends
the Territorial Government of the
District of Columbia and recommends

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

He says a civil service reform to cor
rect abuses arising from the dishon

ants is also desired. He has appoint

Commissioners who will report at an
early day. He concludes bis Mess
age by expressing the hope that Con

statesmanlike and in the best interests
of the whole people."

in speaking of the chances of Grant's re

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.

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

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.
