Olympia, Saturday Morning, June 22,1872. CHArMING SIMPLICITY. His the Couritr indeed so low an esti. mate of the average degree of intelligence of its readers, as to believe that its repeti tion of a falsehood will establish it as the truth, or that braggadocio cin be made to pass for any thing more than " sound and fury, signifying nothing"? One is almost forced to this belief despite the years of experience and thorough education of its editor. We have never met with a journal of the pretensions of the Couritr that has re sorted so persistently to school-boy devices wheo worsted in argument. When it has been shown to have circulated a falsehood, it retorts " You're another;" and when a rebuke is given, it qnotes the precise words of its opponent and applies it back upon him no matter how irrelevant it may be, or how rediculous in the eyes of the pub lic. Now wc have demonstrated in several articles the absurdity of the Courier* ground of defense of the change in our Territorial election. It has given reasons that not only do not apply in support of the change but are really the best of rea sons why no change should have been made. Still the Courier with a degree of "cheek" rarely equaled declares, "Our fortress remains impregnable against the assaults of the STANDARD." It has been a matter of no little surprise to us, during the controversy, that the Courier could not bit upon some one admissible argument in support of its position. It has been the weakest attempt at vindication of an un. warrantable act that has ever been pre sented io our experience, and the easiest to controvert, because the Courier's soph, istry carried with it its own refutation. The only additional support of the measure claimed by the Courier is afford ed by the fact that the Legislature passed a bill providing for the contingency of a change in the date of election. It reasons from this that the people ratified the change through tbeir representatives. Nothing is further from the truth. The question was forced upon the Legislature by the probability of the passage of a gen eral act, changing all elections to Novem ber, and their only course in such an event was to provide for the emergency just as they did do, without expressing or affirming any preference in a matter tbey were unable to control. But in the pas. ssge of the special act they had a right to be heard, and do hold Mr. Garfielde to a strict accountability for his duplicity and total disregard of their wishes. The Cou tier expresses a desire to drop the subject. It may do so, if it pleases, but we intend to keep the outrage fresh in the minds of the people uotil they have an opportunity to express their views upon this, as well as many other unwarranted acts, of " our Delegate" FESTIVAL.— The attention of tbe pub lic is again called to the festival to be given by the ladies of tbe First Unitarian Society of Olympia, at Columbia Hall, on Wednesday, the 20th inst.

On Saturday cveuing laM.a* Mr I'riwrlt, of the Trifirnr, wax entering the More ul K. X Ouimette, on Main Si root, accom panied by Ilia wife, he was accosted by Gen. McKinney, the Superintendent of ludian Affair*. nnJ requested to Mcp not on the sidewalk* )Ir. IVnsch readily complied, not anticipating a hostile demonstration n.« he avers, and had no sooner proceeded be yond the door than he was struck a vio lent blow upon the head by MeKinney, with his cane. Stunned and bruised by the sudifen assault, he endeavored to close with his antagonist, but in the endeavor tripped and fell into the gutter, where Me- Kinney administered several other blows with the same weapon. It is believed that this is a fair and im partial statement of the occurrence. It is certainly just as we received it from eye witnesses of the disgraceful scene. If the origin cf the difficulty is as stated by the Tribune, we have no words of condemna tion too strong to characterize the assault wpon a man totally unprepared for a hos tile meeting and thrown off his guard by the manner and address of his assailant. We had always thought there were certain " points of honor" rccogniied by men of established fighting reputations, a breach of which was considered unfair and dis honorable ; that among these were foul blows, striking when down, or taking any unforeseen advantage of an opponent. Bat it appears we are mistaken, though we have known men who would scorn to resort to sueh expedients. We hold that the acts of a public officer are proper subjects fur criticism, and that it is the special duty of the press to expose all violations of public trusts. To the press the people look for all such informa tion, and when it fails to set forth abuses known to exist, through fear or favor, it fails in the most essential particular as the exponent of the best interests of the com munity from which it derives its own sup port. If the charges made by the Tribune, or im editor, against the Superintendent were untrue, Gen. MeKinney certainly had it in his power to prove them to be false, and a mode of redicss guaranteed by the laws framed for the well-being of society. If they are true, he could not have adopted a more thorough expedient for developing the proof. It docs not require much courage to as sault with a weapon an unarmed man, and one generally reputed to be a non-combat taut. It adds no fresh laurels to the the title or fame of the General to engage in street broils or cudgel a prostrate foe; and the sympathy or confidence of a communi ty can never bo secured or swayed by fre quent assaults upon peaceable citiccus, who entertain no spirit of malice nor cher ish feelings of revenge. It is unprofitable, for it can in no event lengthen the days allotcd to man nor conduce to bis happi ness. ID this connection, wc must condemn the effort of the Courier to impress upon the public the idea that the assault was pro voked by allusions to anybody or anything else than Gen. McKinney's official acts. The item to which it doubtles alludes ap peared in the Tribune several weeks ago and could not, therefore, have induced the late assault. It is much more probable that that paper is correct in attributing, it to the letter written by Mr. Prosch pro. fering charges of malfeasance in office against McKinney, for use at Washington. Be that as it may, wc hope that our town will not be again disgraced by such a scan dalous proceedings MIGHTY KEASONS. —The Republican papers are giving reasons why Horace Greeley should be defeated. One of these is that he opposed the nomination of Lin coln in 1860, and abused him during the war. Another, that he favored peaceable secession «at the beginning of the war then again, that he favored peace nego tiations in 18G2 at Niagara Falls; and again, that he opposed Lincoln's re-nomi nation. And his record since the war is not a whit more satisfactory: He bailed Jeff. Davis; was a candidate for Postmas ter General under Johnson; opposed im peachment and has done all in his power to make Grant's administration unpopular. Truly, this ia an array of iniquitous acts that should seal his doom forever; but we fear it won't do anything of the kind. I®* Judge Lewis has decided that Ky ger s bond is defective and consequently the amount of the stolen funds cannot be collected from his bondsmen. It appears that the date and amount of the bond was not filled in when signed, nor until a year subsequently. The only redress for the county is to recover what it can from the personal estate of Kyger, and the Union says that that will not cover the expenses of litigation. W&" The Eugene Guard savs : We have on hand about 900 Democratic tickets which we would like to dispose of at a low figure.

A pile hammer weighing 2,300 pounds was recently cast at the Olympia Foundry for the Puget Mill C'o. Current OF PUBLIC SENTIMENT. The Now York Smii give* the result of a conversation with Hngcr A. Prynr, the well-known representative Southerner, on the present aspect of the Presidential campaign, which Bay be taken aa an in dex of popular sentiment in the South. lien. Pryor said that the whole Southern people would support Greeley, because they believed that if elected he woold unite the whole country once again in the bonds of peace and prosperity, llis idea was—and he knew it to be shared very generally by the southern people—that the Democratic party could not consistent ly and in honor nominate an independent eandidate, because, by every form of man. ifestation, tbey declared and pledged them selves, before the Cincinnati Convention, (hat if the Liberal Republicans would or. ganize and nominate an independent ticket, the Democratic party would not nominate any ticket, but would support the caiidi dates of the Liberal Republicans. The nomination of Greeley was acceptable to the Democracy. Not a single Democratic journal nor representative Democrat, North or South, has even intimated that they would not support Greeley. It was idle to say, " We won't support Mr. Greeley, because his principles are not exclusively Democratic." We knew, said he, that the Liberal Republicans would not nominate a man whose political opinions were ours. We supposed that the Liberal Republicans would nominate a Republican. Now, Mr. Greeley is as acceptable to us as any nan can be. General Pryor affirmed that the South, as well as every other portion of the coun try has good reasons to support Mr. Gree ley because he was in favor of universal amnesty and against any further proscrip tion of Southern men. lie had traveled a great deal in the South, and had reason to know that the feeling io the South ij over whelmingly in his favor. A straight tick et, he declared, could be nominated of ly in the interest of Grant, because it would serve no other end. The leaders of the Democratic party and the Southern peo ple know that well. Mr. Greeley, no doubt, accepted the nomination with the understanding that all classes opposed to the Administration would go for him. As for the South, they will go solid for Hor ace Greeley, because, unlike Grant, he recognizes the wir as over, and all its is. sues as settled. The election of Grant moans proscription and class legislation— the election of Greeley means peace, hap piness and equal laws all over the land. The position of this distinguished advo cate of extreme Southern ideas will have great weight with men of like sympathies and instincts. THE DUTY OF TIIE IIOOR. —Wo, Hire the words used by Samuel J. Tilden, in the New York State Convention, which met in May. He said : I believe that the three million* of Dem ocratic voters will go unitedly, go with an organization unbroken, go with their ranks united ; and whatever they decide to do, they will give victory to whatever cause and to whatever candidates they declare themselves in favor of. Ido not think tbut your great and noble traditions are to be surrendered or broken down ; but I suppose you will act as wise men, and practical men, and all avail yourselves of the best opportunity that exists to work out for your cause what is possible ; and believing in the destiny of your country you will go forward fearlessly to th« achieve ment of the great objects to which you have been devoted from the fotindation oi the Gov ernment.

LIMA, May 0. 1872. ED. STAXDARD: Paru is reached. We , stand upon Pixarro'a land of silver and ! gold. I don't see much of ihese, however, but a great deal of copper and paper money. In fact I went to a fruit woman, directly after landing, to purchase a lew bananas ; 1 presented a four dollar bill in payment nod she nearly loaded me down with cop pers. I told her I wanted silver change, hot she replied ti» intendn. I supposed then she meant that ahc did not inteud to give it to me, so I went away with a heavy heart and heavier pockets. Since then I have learned that no inttmla means •' I don't nnderstand yon." " llow we live and learn," in this progressive age. But Peru I suppose is a rich couutry. We cannot think otherwise when we sue the great progress of railroads on every side, the cnormoua amonnt of shipping that is carried on to and from her ports, and that her paper money is "just as good as gold," though torn apart or one-third gone. Peruvians will receive a bill that is mutilated in this manner when they will refuse a gold or silver piece with a hole in it the situ of a button hole. Another proof of her wealth and stability is that she has lately negotiated a new loan in Europe for thirty-five million pounds sterling, with the very best security. But to Peruvians belong no credit for her present popularity and thrift. The construction of railroads has made Peru what she is, and foreigners built the railrouds. Take away this for eign enterprise and Pern is several centu ries behind the present age. In the valleys there ara beautiful roads, but not even a freight wagon to transport the produce to market. Donkeys by thousands, old and gray, go trudging along loaded with every conceivable kind of freight. Even lumber that comes from your Pugct Sound, I have seen lashed upon the backs of these little ancients, and packed for miles. There arc many large sugar and cotton plantations here, but instead of the steaui or gang plow or the 14 Boston Clipper" or " Prairie Schooner," are the old wooden "gougers," that weonly seo in representation of inple ments belonging to ages that are behind in time. There is no machinery with the exception of what has been introduced iu the last few years, and that in connection with the railroads. In Lima, u city of 250,000 inhabitants, and with beautiful natural water power, there is uot a factory of any kind. Even the Peruvian money is of foreign coinage. But the CITY OF LIMA, What is it? Though a city of over three hundred years of age, here we find no crumbling or moss covered walls, no creeping vines over lattices of stone, no neglected tenements. Everything is new, at least it looks so. The buildings, I am told are all painted, at least once a year. There are many beautiful and tasty residen ces, but all of pure Spanish style. In front of each one is a kind of private plaia, paved with cobble stone and often ornamented with other kinds of stone, or bones of fishes and shells. At the rear of this about fifty feet from the street is the residence. It has a balcony on every side if possible and ono for each story above the ground floor. The walls are thick, so as to he damaged as little aa possible by the earthquakes. The buildings are seldom over two stories and never over three. Among the antiquities of Lima is the cathedral, and the bridge accrues the Rio Riniac. The former is said to be three hundred years old. On the tombstones inside are very ancient dates, but I saw none to prove its reputed oge. Below the ground floor are vastcatecombs, containing the bones and ashes of many thousands. We are shown around here, for we can not trust ourselves in these labyrinths without a guide. We halt by the side of a largo skeleton and ask our guide who it is. " Pisarro," he replies, and asks if we dou't want a piece of the shroud—can have a little piece for four reils (40cts). But we did not care for four reils, worth of that shroud; we knew that Pizarro was too much hated by the Peruvians to rest qui etly in the cathedral, and besides we had been reminded the trick. The bridge was built by Pisarro, and is a continuation of the main street of Lima whiqji leads to the gardens, and the arena. It is an arched and pier stone structure, and is provided with a foot walk on each sido It is \great public resort and every evening hundreds of the people of Lima can be seen prome nading on its walks, or taking their ease on the seats, which I suppose that Pizarro provided too for the comfort of these people that declare their hatred against him. Last Thursday, the 2d of May, was the anniversary of Peruvian independence. On that day Congress assembled, and on Sunday the election of President took place. The acting President snys be shall retain the seat and has the military to sup port him. The President elect, backed by the masses of the people, also claims the position. Who will be successful in ob > taining the place will probably be decided by force of arms. In my next I may be able to give you the result. J. H. HUNTING EXTRAORDINARY.—A San Francisco dispatch of the 18th says that a party of forty.nine Boatonians, provided with hunting, fishing and camping out fit complete, are bound on a Summer cam paign in Oregon. They expect to knock the price of tront, bear and buffalo meat in the Portland market, down to a nominal figure during their stay with the Webfect. The wool elip of this county is es timated at about 30,000 pounds. Messrs. S. Coulter, Macleay & Co., and Lightner & Rosenthal, are the principal shippers. NEW MACHINERY. —The Utsalady Mill Co. propose to temporarily suspend opera, tions in a few days, to put in new boilers and additional machinery. ELECTIONEERING DOCUMENTS.—Voor hees' speech against Greeley is being scat tered broad cast, tinder the frank of Grant Congressmen. FIRST BOOK OF CHRONICLES. ('HAITI It V. 1. After Thornton, the assimilator, had sinched Charles, the trrgiver>ator, and taken him back into the entrenchments, lie was wroth, and commented to lire his catapnlt at random. 2. And it came to pass that a atray piece of dirt from his engine s*ruck Thom as. the Xes<|uullyitc, and wounded him iu a lenJer spot. 51. And Thomas, the Nesquallyito, went fortli iu the streets of Chitwoot, and when he had met Charles, ihe tergivcrsator, he fell upon him, and a great battle ensued. 4. After the battle was over and his wounds had been dressed, Charles, the tergivcrsator. sent forth an epistle to the people of Alki, that they might know how lie had dons unto his enemy, and to in struct Iheui in the art of war. 6. And this is the first epistle of Charles the tergivcrsator to the Alkians : 0 And it came to pass, that Thomas, the Nisquallyitc, called us outside. As he did so, in his usual manner and tone of voice, we had not the remotest idea that he had a hostile intent. 7. In compliance with his request we stepped aside, totally unprepared for at tack and unsuspicious of danger. When sufficiently near, he suddenly raised a heavy hickory cane an I dealt us a stun, ning blow upon the head. 8. Surprised uml stunned, fur a moment we wore at n loss how to act; in this brief space he inflicted several other blows. 0. Returning to a state of semi-con sciou?ness, wo faintly roali/.t'd the circum stances in which we were so unexpectedly placed. Our first impulse was to close with our assailant. As wo proceeded to do so he retreated, keeping us out of reach and at the same time showering his blows upon our person. lU. \V liilo vainly endeavoring to get hold of (lie scoundrel, we Cell into H hollow by the sidewalk, with our head lower than our heels. In this position wo were com pletely powerless, nevertheless he cotitin. uc<l his blows until his strength was ex hausted. 11. When ho desisted, we arose, bri'.ised, stunned, and our senses somewhat scat tered. 12. Panting for breath, ho said, " Put my name in jour paper again, will you ?" We replied that we would when it suited us to do so. Remarking that he had not done with us yet, ho left the scene. 13. When the Alkiaos had read the epistle of Charles, tho tcrgiversator. they marvelled at his cooluess in buttle and skill in the art of war. 14. And Jonathan, the peace-officer, when ho had heard these things, mounted his chariot of war and drove like Jehu. 15. And William, his deputy, scratched gravel. 16. And when the followers of Selucins the babbler had heard these things, they laid tribute upon the people for fifty shelc els of silver, and made unto themselves a graven image ot wood. 17. The image was named Cain, and those who looked upon it were smote with a headache and pnins in their bones. 18. And when they had seen the image that it was fearful to behold, Ezra the law-giver, Elisha the parliamcntcrian, Pe troleum the drummer, Clarence the amor ous, Thomas the pious, William the usurer and Marion the lemon squeezer, fell down and worshiped it. 19- And they offered incense and poured ointuicnt and soft-soap upon it. and sang hnlelujahs to propitiate it that it might not harm thein. 20. And the men in high places pro claimed it to be the true god. And it be came a mighty power, and there was no law in the land except the law of Cain. ty The Cincinnati Crmmercial makes the very gratifying announcement that Greeley has but one brother in-law, and no father, and that his nephews aro all nieces.
