Semi-Weekly Tidal Wave.
T. J. lICTMtR. » » 1 Friday Morning. Aug. Editor. 1.1, ISO». milter op cl/kff ptigl— M-Orlglnal latest outside. The array of great names signed to a Democratic address ''to the people of California and the United States " away from home, where the characters of a majority of the men were not known as the veriest dem agogues on earth, might impose on the unsuspecting were it not for the fllmsey, sycophantic, whining bosh of the document itself. Who but a •et of knaves and tricksters would presume upon a want of intelligence In their reader* in a cosmopolitan land like California fbr even tolera tion in depicting their condition as one below the moral, financial and social status of the Chinaman, •gainst whose superiority the pro tecting arm of fhe law is invoked. The committee appointed to prepare that address should go and hang themselves, for so sure as God rules in the affairs of men the legal b ar riei' that has hitherto kept the infe rior races beneath them are being broken dowu, and merit, not color, will hereafter be a passport to dis tinction. Well may J. H. Hardy, J. 11. McConnell, C. T. Ryland, T. R. Wise, J. C. B irch, T. A. Cald well, J. H. Build, E. T. Hogan and I). W. Gclwleks tremble where they stare at the certainty or continued defeat. Jt is not the fatherly care of the liborlng man and his interests as against capital, as they pretend, that his »farmed these patriots ; they see au unreasoning prejudice of cast in the country and arc base enough lo pander fe that prejudice and cultivate und excite a grosser sentiment, if possible, in their fol lowers and dupes, lest by reflection they might conclude to throw off the Democratic yoke, assert their man hood and avow their ability to take of thetaselves against all the caro hordes of Mongolians, Kreedmen or what-not that may bo brought in competition with them. The Dem ocratic mind has been giving evi dences of expansion that has alarmed their wil-conmituted musters, hence the address and warning " not to be wito beyond what is written," Twenty-seven officers and three hundred recruit* have been ordered from New York to the Pacific Coast recently. Chits. K3y, late of the fifth Infantry, W. T. Tanfleld, of the 1» th, and P. T. Broderick, of the 25th, are assigned to the 23d Infant ry (Gen. Crook's commaud) a* 2d Lieutenants. Capt. J. L. Smyth, late of the 10th, take* command of Major Walker's company, late of Camp C. P. Smith. We ure indebt ed to Major Hammond, of Camp Three Forks, for the above items. Concerning the movement* of troops in this vicinity, Lieut. Danneison bas gone to Fort Hall to relieve Indian Agent Powell. Powell calls the Lieutenant a carpet-bagger in a let ter to the Statesman, but having carpet-bagged it into Iho office him self, under Johnson, he will have to shoulder his sack and carpet-bag it out again. Whom the Governor elect of Tea Mr. Sen ter, plants himself squarely oo tho Fourteenth and Fif* teentb Amendment« to Uïo Constitu* tion, is in favor of universal suffrage, and receive* the support of such Democrats as W. G. Brownlow and T. 11. Pearne, we can endure such Democratic triumphs, election in Tennessee has precisely the same significance os that in Vir ginia. It means universal suffrage for all men, black, white, rebel and everybody, and nothing more. The Mr. John Upham has handed us for examination two pamphlets, one the proceedings of the 15th annual session of the R. W. G. Lodge I. O. G.,?. of North America,.helj},pi Oswegô,. N. X...ÂH. May Ipst ; the out other ot the 2d anmrnl session of ties Grand Lodge of l'Ipho.héldiu Idaiio City last December: From a hasty - ' perusal, we observe the ordef of Good Templars to be an extensive institution. At the Oswego conven tion representatives from nearly all the States and Territories were pres ent, besides Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, I'rinoe Enward's Isl and, etc., etc., all very enthusiastic in the cause of saving fallen human ity from the curse of strong ilRink. The reports ol G. W. C. T. Boatman and G. W. S. Yates, of this jurisdic tion, are well written and betray a hopeful spirit in the good work. This is a liberal institution, abound ing in good Works, and making no distinctions os to political or reli gious tenets. May it survive and Sourish until drunkenness, poverty, wretchedness, and the crimes it en tails on humanity are driven from the world, is the prayer of one who can't joiu the order on account of the wine (hat would be wasted by being sent to the office on wedding occasions with no place to put it, but who likes to see temperance in others who have no printing offices and are not liable to have wine Bhoved at them at such times. The Tax Payers' Union of San Francisco have determined to nomi nate a full county ticket for the va rious offices, claiming that both Democrats and Republicans have placed corrupt men in the field, whose only claims arc on the score of uvailability. The Union declares its intention to place none but the very best men on the ticket, and that they shall be equally divided between the two political parties. The nomination of lYovincs for District Judge, anil some equally ob jectionable names for other offices on each ticket were the straws that broke the camel's back. Several thousuuds of the best names in the city are already signed to a request and published, asking the Union to make nominations and they will be supported. The Bulletin, Chronicle and other important intluences favor it ; while if the Herald does not support tbo movement it acknowl edges the necessity for a reforma tion in the city government, which is scarcely less objectionable than when under the. control of Ned Mc Gowan, Billy Mulligan and their compeers. to be in to a in A States, *o far as we can ascertain, that produces annually more money than the whole assessed value of the Owyhkb County, Idaho Territory, is the oniy county in the United taxable property within its limits. Ttiis arises from the fact that the productive property of the county (the mines) are free from taxation, while the unproductive and other wise unprofitable investments of the county are the only sources from which an ad valorum tax is derived. This may be right in obedience to a whimsical fancy and servile toady ism to the miner. In placer mining, where there is little or no stability to mining property, it is all well enough to hold claims exempt from the burdens of taxation, but in vein mining we see no justice in allow ing the best property in the country to enjoy the protection of law at the expense of leas remunerative in vestments. Mr. Ja\if.s M. Classkn has sold the splendid 25-stamp mill, of the Pioneer mine on Granite creek, to the Gold Hill Mining Company— Messrs. Wm. Lynch. Thoe. Mootry, Jr., and others. The new owners will start the mill on ores from their own mine in a few weeks. — If arid.

Charley, of the State Capital Re porter, evidently intended to recog nize and compliment an old friend in a playful allusion to the W avk a correspondent at Cope District, but true to his old habits, blundered in to the very uncomplimentary ex pression : from undoubted authority that the mines are rich, etc." Tae Grando Ronde Sentinel says a large number of Chinamen have passed La Grande on their way to work on the Burnt river ditch. We hope they may pitch in and finish it. Several Owyheeans are waiting pa tiently for water in Willow creek. The State Capita!
