Oregon is a beautiful State in her agricultural resources and manufactur ing possibilities not excelled by any in the Union. But on the highest moun tains, in the darkest cations, deepest forests or sunniest valleys wherever white men have gone there the trail of the serpent is seen ; there it glittering eye sparkles in the brandy, foams in the beer or flashes in the wine cup ; there its slimy form has coiled around human beings and injected its poison into their vuns. Hits venomous serpent is no respecter of persons, Rich and poor learned and ignorant youth and old ago are alike its victims. Prattling children and beautiful women put out their white hands to caress and toy with it, in their innocence and ignorance not dreaming that the purple wine and medicated brandy now wreathed with rainbow hues of hope will by-and-by, in the dark and rainy days of life, be transformed into venomous, stinging serpents. Thank God, there is a stir in the camp. The watchers are asking, "what of the night?" Patient mothers and wives, lieart-brokcn, are waiting for answer. "While wearily watching for day dawn, looking into the cold grey of the morning, they find the sentinels asleep. Tiie voices of the suffering poor, the presence of death, nor the gloom of the grave, has yet awakened the workers and watchers on whom we depended in whom we trusted. They are drugged! We are betrayed! lung Alcohol has won the day. His money his wine has been too muehfo'r the guardians of the public weal. In whispers the questions have passed around, Are we not the mothers of mon the wives of men the sisters of men? Are we not sober, thoughtful .women?

PORTLAND, OREGON, FKIDAY, SEPTE3IBER 13, isri. Women Tax-Payera. BV MATILDA JOSX.VJT CACE. Let us look at this question of taxa tion, ir women are entitled to property at all. they arc entitled to be consulted as to its disposal. A person does not really possess anything, if it is liable to be taken away by the will of others. Property representation was for ages the law of England, both for man and for woman. The very fact of the colo nies being deprived of this projwrfy representation was what brought about the Revolutionary war. and when prop erty rights were made the foundation of me demand for other rights, "thev buildcd better than they knew." That taxation without representation was tyranny, was a fundamental doc trine of the women of '7G. In 1770, six years before the Declaration of Independ ence, the women of New England made a public combined protest against taxa tion without representation; and as tea was the article upon which Great Brit ain was then expending her strength, these women of the American Colonies united themselves Into a league, and bound themselves, to use no more tea in their families until the lax upon it tras repealed. This league was formed by the married women, but three days af terwards the young ladies held an anti tax meeting. These young ladies pub licly declared they did not take this step for themselves alone, but they protested against this taxation as a matter of principle, and with a view to benefit their posterity. These public protests against taxationwere made Hiorc than tirt years before the commencement of the Revolutionary M'ar. They, also, were the real origin of the famous Tea Party in Boston Harbor, which did not take place until three years after the public protest of the women. The women of to-day are the direct posterity of the women of the Revolution, and as our fore-mothers protested against "taxa tion without representation." so do we. their descendant, protest against being taxed without being-represented. In this corioralioii of Favettevllle. vaiiu mu coqiorauuu noes not include I 11.- l . .

From eacii one is the full pound of flesh demanded by the Shylocks of the law. Gentlemen, if you did not allow the votes of those ten women who olferctl them at your Charter Election, because tney ircrc ftwni, pray be consistent, and io not tax tiiem for the same rea-, son. All the authority yon get at all ) for taxing women, is through the words 'men,' "he," "his," and the like. It . is curious to see by what sophistry I'inen," "he" and "his," are made to include women, when men deem it for fflintr mtn ifiinntct flint flinv ulirmlfl , their own interest that they should have such bearing, and equally curious to see by what turn they are made to exclude women, when the executors of law sec fit to read these words so as vol to mean women. Let us read the law by which our As sessors and Collectors get their right to assess taxes in this State or Jew oik: Statutes at large, page 301, Article 1st, paragraph 1st, rends thus: "Every per son shall be assessed in the town or ward where 4he' resides when the assess ment is made, for all lands owned by 'him,' within such town or ward, and oc cupied bv 'him,' or wholly unoccupied."

This question of woman's demand for representation is a question trointr linnk- not only to the foundation of our Gov ernment, but to the very existence of woman as a responsible human being. Self government i3 no more the right of man than or woman, tor It Is a human right. The history of our own country, the history of the world, shows the rights of any class are not safe in the hands of any otner class, 'iiic rights of life, the rights or liberty, the rights orproporty of the colonists were not safe m the hands of the British. The rights of the slaves or of the free men of color were not safe when the power of self-protection was not in their own hands. It is simply imposslblo for any person to do as well for another person as that person will do for himself. A woman is more interested in the economical management of her own property, than any man, or set of men can be; a woman Is more interested in the security of her own life, than any man, or set of men in be; a women is more interested in the enactment of just laws for herself than any husband, father, orsoncan be. There is no protection quite equal toself jirotection. When woman holds the ballot in her own hands then she can protect herself. Do They? It is the opinion of Elizabeth Stuart PheliN, "that women dress to plc:isc the men." Docs she know women? Thev ilrosa for each other's eyes. They fear each other's critcisms and ridicule more than anything living. To have Mrs. Lofty say our velvet is cotton-back our laces imitation our dress an old one turned wrong side out, and bottom side up, and ret rimmed to hide old seams, is all but leath itself.

A successful woman of business is spared the criticisms which sting the idle, aimless one. Society recognizes something in her beyond the reach of its eyes and tongue it sees that a purpose in life guides and guards her it feels that ceaseless waves of fashion sweep over her, nor leave a trace behind.

One of the commonest proofs we have that man is made of clay, Is the brick so often found in his hat ! Woman's Eights. Allow me to give my platform of oman's Rights, begging pardon for the use of a very manish term, which I use for the sake of brevity. All I claim for woman is the removal of theinterdict. Acceptherasa citizen. Now she Is denied the rights of citizen ship and all the lumbering legislation of centuries will not adjust her relations harmoniously in the world till tbi in justice be removed. She cannot be pro tected fully till she is thus recognized. She cannot reach the true dignities of iter oeing tin sue is invested with the sanctities and privileges of a good citi zen. Remove the Interdict. Make our wives and mothers and sisters at full age citizens, and they may vote or not vote, as our brothers vote or abstain from voting. Every shade of character exists among women. I leave these to find their true relations. The family woman soft, de pendent, instinctive will gather her pretty brood about her and nestle to the fireside; tho woman of cold intellectu ality will be loth to make the domestic altar the arena for mereintellcctualism. Tho composite woman will range the whole sphere of thought, imagi nation or passion. I leave these to their career as the world finds them at present. I meet the facts of life as I find them. I see the present social system tottering to decay. I will not help to bolster up what is false in it, but by casting out aspects that have ceased to be in harmo ny with our higher progress I hope to arrest the introdution of what is iernie ious. At least one-half the women of the country aredriven to theirown resources for a livelihood. Hundreds are engaged in teaching at a miserable pittance. The proportion supjioscd to bo adequate re muneration for teaching compared with other expenses in a family, may be a little intrinsically reached by comparing the Items of expense in the letter of Mr. Folsom, Minister to the Hague, where a plain Yankee official pays $400 for wine, and $223 per year to a governess. Mo-.t of the larger schools are projected by nicn, and women fill the various de partments at the lowest possible rates. I contend that the law must looeu its hold upon us. Our women artisans, farmers, merchants, lecturers, authors, must not rank with idiots, lunatics, or children as they nowdoin nearly all the States. This is all I ask; and yet the country is in alarm; simple, pious souls aggrieved, as if I were a blasphemer; editors sharpen their keenest pens to annihilate me on the point of a para graph; husband forbid their wives to hear me; little children are told of "a ! woman out of her sphere," who must ue : warning to tiiem; anil a sort of spas- liiodic porcupine state .svems to have siezed upon all elases, who verily be lieve I wish to put men to rocking cra dles, and women to ruling Stutes. You will find the beautiful old illus tration of prejudice very apt in regard to the doctrines of Woman's flights. Prej udice, it lias been said, is likeone who in a fog beholds an object in the distance; it is gigantic in size, derormetl 111 aspect.

This plan never fails to distance deoreases, and now, what had . insure light, sweet bread. Cor. Western been Ioomimr tliroutih the foir as a 1 creature of dread, proves to be his own brother. So is It with these doctrines. They need only Ilghtautl proximity to assume craec ami beauty, anil recommend recommend themselves as but an expression of human needs, growing out of human progress. I do uotaim at the overthrow of womanly quality; on tho eontrarj'i I contend we are not womanly because are we not recognized In our full nature- by our brothers. I do not ask to be freed from the law, but only protection and representation therein. Give us social and civil equality. If it Is safe for the husband to fill the ofllce of a private citizen, and a private one, according to the wishes of his friend and neighbors, or the people at large, it is safe also for women. If man looks to the construc tion of his own being as the foundation of the laws by which he is to be bound, women should be allowed to do the same. Thoe who seek the highest human freedom are the most bound by the great God Himself. Mrs. E. Gales Smith. Woman's Riohts.

When the peaches are cold fill the inralmlf full of them, and fill up with the boiling syrup, set them away for a short time, covered witli a thin cloth, then put on brandy paper, and cover them cloe with cloth, paper or skin.

A small ci der mill and press may now be pur chased for ten dollars and upwards, and where there are twenty trees in the or chard, the amount saved by its use the first year would equal its cost. After every high wind sullicient apples might be gathered for a grinding, the juice might be turned into a cask and addi tions occasionally made until it is filled, when, after being properly converted into vinegar and racked oil from thesed inient, it would find a good market in any town of considerable size. The pom ace would be excellent for tho hogs, and a small quantity placed in wide-mouthed ootties or siiailow pans and covered witli water would make very clllcient traps for moths of all kinds.

The exact words he used was, "lie came to heal the wounds caused by the late war, and he offered the hand of fellow ship, that all parties be reconciled."

With the read ers permission we will relate it, speak ing 01 ourseif (.to avoul tne llrst person; as Col. Cremony, who is an excellent hunter, loves a joke, and will pardon the liberty.

The Colonel adjusted the noose to slip more easily. Bear held up oncpaw. Colonel whirled again. Bear did nothing. Colonel looped the end of his thong about his left wrist. Bear sat up like a statue, and smiled a smile of resignation. Colonel threw the noose a little way to try it, and jerked it back. Bear got down aud walked slowly toward him. Colonel retired, so as to preserve a good throwingdistance, whirling menacingly. Bear trotted. Colonel whirled once, wildly, and then spread the noose out on theground, takingan additional turn of the other end about his wrist.

As for dress, San Francisco ladies surpass us all. I have seen luindsomcr women, and more elegantly arrayed in that city, than I ever saw In any other. Velvet dresses, laces and diamonds, with furs that Oueens might envy. The writer further says of these vulgar and ill-bred women: They liavc a way or staring people out of countenance, which, however agreea ble at first, soon becomes monotonous. I have seen them turn in their seats at theater or concert, and regard an imme diate neighbor minutely, every article of dress commented upon audibly, and every hair-pin and bow counted until, to the unfortunate victim, tho legends of the Inquisition paled into nursery rhymes."
