Wast at lataCigeat aailiiaaaa lawia csw Ortaaa. Fiwa BM Rtw YMk WM. Mr. Blmmoad, of the hoots of Simmonds, Hunt k Co., of Lon don, Liverpool and New York, arrived la this city a few days sgo from New Orleans, when ho had spent about three weeks, acoompa nied by his wife. On reaching their hotel, the Clarendon, Mr. and Mrs. 8lmmonds were warmly wel comed by their Meads, all of whom congratulated them on their timely escape from the dangers which must bar surrounded them so long as they remained in New Or leansa city which could only be compelled to keep the peace by the pretence of Federal soldiers. At lint Mr. Simmonda teemed to ac cept thete congratulation a if they had been made In fun; but when he aw they were not, he was so lmpreted by the fact that the people of New York to mliuu derttood the people of a large part of their owa country, that he hat tince brought the matter up in convertatlon with many merchant and leading citixen, with whom he has chanced to meet. Mr.Bim monds Is well known by the lead ing merchants of Brunswick and Chapel street, Liverpool, aud of Mark Lane, London, among whom the Arm of which he is head has a high reputation. He is an Intelli gent Englishman and a keen ob server. Ir conversation with the writer yesterday Mr. Blmmond said : " Of eoursa I am aeither a Dem ocrat nor a Republican. I have friends ! both parties, and I e- teem them all ailke. I should dis- llks very much to be understood as having latarfered with politic While n this country. I bars talk ed with gentlemen belonging to each of your two parties, and I have told my sxperience to all of them la the asms way. I saw no thing la New Orleans that surpri sed mo vary much, except the ar rival of the United State soldiers In a city that was Just at quiet on election day as New York Is at this moment. My surprise came back when I returned to this city and saw what strange aad false idsas the psopls had as regard New Orleans and other cities in the south. I was surprised aad aaddeaed too. when I found that your people up hero wore saying sueh hard things against the people of Now Orleans, whom I fouad so kind, so just aad so peaoseble." , TSR OACSR OF TR0URLR ARD KR R KM BOY. " Did yon make up your miad at to what waa the can of all the trouble that was down there? " ' "I made up my mind that the priadpal reason why the South has not returned to .Us ; former prosperity is the interference and usurpation of Northern men, thote whom you have named carpet bag gers. They tax the people heavily and arive nothiug in return. The people down there want to control their local t'Ji themselves. One largo pb&teon owner told me that be owned oae thoutand acres of land just outtido the city; that ho had been taxed r-larly six J laadrsd dollars a year for repair- inx levees, and tvat no work had ra ob-, Axil: -r tiTi da t-t, Ml building abridge; that the work had been abandoned after a little money had been speat, and that ao work had beea done. This ap peared to be a common trick. A largo work would be projected. and after operations had beea car ried oa a abort time the aaderta- kiag would be aoeadoaed and somebody would pocket all the moacy. I believe that If these car pet baggers would leave the South the people down there would pros per. The idea that the Southern people are unfriendly to your peo ple in the North sees to be aa en tirely false one. They want the help of the Northern people. They want you to godowa there aad live amoag them. OacSoutberaer said tome: 'All our young men have been killed off by the war, aad the result to that we have a groat many ators women than men. We want the young men of the North to come dowa here ai msrrysome of them.' I em sure no one could say more than thai." WHICH WAY IXTljifDATIOV BAR WORKRD. " Did you see or hear anything that justified the ttoriea about in timidating the negroes? " " Only once. A gentleman took me into hit manufactory where he had sixty colored men at work. I talked with the foreman for soma time, and in the courts of the con versation I alluded to polities aad asked his opinion of the candi dates. Ho said that he waa a Til- den maa, aad most of the men un der him wanted to vote with the Democrats this lime, but that they were afraid to. They would prob ably rote with the Republicans, for they had beea told that no col ored man's life would be safe after voting for a Democrat. I alto fouud that a good many of the col ored people were under tea im pression that if Titden was elected they would ell be sold back into slavery again. I am sure that sla very ia the south is impossible now, which ever psrty goes Into power. The southern people don't want it. The old matters are get- tlugaloug, very well with their for mer slave. They like the present syttsm better. A great retponti- bility has been removed from them, for now when a mail hat no work for his help he can dismiss them. Before he had to retain them and support them." In speaking of the character of the southern men, Mr. Simmonda said that, although be esteemed hia northern friends fery highly, he should not hesitate to say to any one that the southern men at a class were superior to those of the north lu the quslitles that goto make up the thorough gentleman. He thought the people ol the north ought at least to stop misrepresen ting their brothers of the south, and that the southern man had some traits which might be copied with profit in the north'. . Mr. Simmonds is an ex-Lord Mayor of London. XEEP COOL. We have been for some weeks exhorting the Democrata to keep cool and not allow the misfortunes that threatened their party to lead tbem into auy acta of lawlessness and violence. The appeal hat not been without Us effect. The con servative, peaceful, demeanor of the leaders in Louisiana, Swath Carolina aad Florida, under very trying circumstances, aud the wite counsel they have given to their people, have been very commend able. We are now called upon to offer similar advice to the Repub licans. If the wheel of fortune seems to turn against them, they must keep their tempers. They must trust to the strength of the law and the Justice of the Amsrl can people to give them their full rights. Threat against Governor Qrover aad the Oregon state can vassers and electors aad anneals to passion are unwise and dangerous at this time. Let them take pat tern by Wade Hampton in South Carolina and General Nicbollc In Louisiana in counseling patience and forbearance, ana an win do well. Hew York Heraia. ' Washlna-ton. Dec. 15.

Their hate for these two Important Individu als Is eqaal to that which their friend eatortaiaa for holy water, aad they canaot discus tbem with out becoming choked with virtu ous iadigaatloB. Graver and Cro ats did not take it upoa themselves to patch ap the hlundere of their political opponents, aad heace they are denounced as moaaters aad knave. Ia Vermont and Rhode Island the State authorities took precisely the same view of the ease that Governor Graver does, aad the Governors of these two 8tates eoaveaed the Legislatures to cure the defect which made their elect ors ineligible. The foot that they called the Legislatures to appolat new electors, not to fill vaeaaciea, show that they believed there was ao other remedy for the emergen cy. uoveraoruroverpursuMias only conns left him, and he steads before the country impregnable upon the solid rock of the consti tution and the statute laws of hie State. It is Impudence eubMme to see the unprincipled creatures who sasteia the Louisiana returning board, made up of two whites and two negroes, all rogues according to the sworn aad official testimony of the mea who created the board, denouncing Graver aad Crania. The Chicago Tribune Indignantly aakts - . 44 Didn't Oregon vote for Hayes? Yes. Didn't the Bepubllcan people there declare they wanted; the Re publican candidates to receive their electoral vote ? Tee. Then do you, Mr. Democrat, propose to make a row when the president of the senate counts the vote as It was cast? II you do, get down your horse pistols at once. The Repub licans will never content to have the voice of the people stifled." These are stunning conundrums, and the Infuriated editor no doubt regards them as set Ulna: the ques tion. But here is the way the Chicago Times answers them! ''Did Louisiana and Florida vote for Ttlden? Yes. Didn't the people there declare that they wanted Mr. Tilden to receive their electoral votes? Yet. Then do you, Mr. bayotiet-blood-and-thun- dor revolutionitt, propose to make a row when the representative as sembly of the American people refuse to count, or to permit the count, of their false aud fraudulent vote for Mr. Mayes, whom they did not vote for? If you do, bring on your bayonets, for you can make up your minds at once that the votes you have takeu by fraud and force from the people of Louisiana and Florida will be rejected by the represeatative assembly, who will never consent that the lawfully de clared will of the American people shall be overruled by aay gang of revolutionary conspirator." Tbs Important case of James D. Wallace vs. the New Orleans, St. Louis aud Chicago Railroad, has been tried and a verdict given by the jury In favor of the plaintiff for 24,0C0. Thia was a suit for the loss of a leg by the collision of the cars at Pontobatoula, In 1M2, by which Colonel Goode's seventh Mississippi regiment lost a large number of mea t aad besides those killed, many were badly wounded! The suit has been pending ever since the close of the war, and there have been three Jury trials. The first verdict was for f 12,000. The compauy then took the case to the supreme court, and it was re versed on the ground that there was one wrong instruction. At the next trial there was a verdlc for 1)20,000, and a new trial was granted. MSMMMMiBBnBISaBBBFJMIM1MMM The Democratic House has sent three partisan committees down south to collect red roses of the Democratic species, and the Re publican senate are going to send another committee dowu to pick white rotes of the Republican kind.

The New York Herald publishes the following t Salem, Oregoa, Dee. 7. To the Editor of the Herald t At yoar request I give some of the grounds of my actloa la granting cetificates to electors ia Oregon. The law of Oregoa requires the Govervor to gnat eertificatee to electors duly elected. Ia taking his oath of office, the Governor Is sworn to support the eoastitutioa of the United 8tatea and of this State. In the election of President and Vice President the constitution of tbs United States it the paramouat law; that instrument declares that no person holding an office of prof it or trust under the United Stetea shall be appointed aa elector. John W. Watte, one of the electors vo ted for, ih oa the 7th of Novem ber holding aa office of profit aad trust under the United Btates, to wit: Postmaster at Fayette, the county seat of Yamill county, aad had so hsld that office for more than three yeara. Many more than the number of voters constituting his majority had actually passed la aad out of his office on official basinets. His official character was generally known, and was mentioned during the political die- cutaiona of the canvass. The law waa known and the net was kaowa reudering hint disqualified to be an elector. A protest waa filed In the Executive office by promlaeat dtisens, objecting to the Issuing of a certificate to Watts, at a person disqualified, accompanied by proof of his disqualification, and deman ding that the same Issue to the eli gible person having the next highest uuniberof votes. A reply was filed objecting to anything but a count of the votes and a certifi cate oa the count, aud making ao denial of the dltquallooatioa. It waa ruled ia the case, that where the objoctioa to an applicant's right to receive a certificate rests upoa the grouud that a constitu tional prohibition Is Interposed, the Governor, acting under his oath to support the constitution, is bound to entertain and deter mine the questiou ; uot only that, but it to entertain and determine the question lit such a way aa to enforce the constitutional mandate to the extent of hi power. It was also held that the law and the fact being well known, the votes cut for the Ineligible candidate cannot be counted for any purpose, and the eligible candidate having the next higheat number of votes was duly elected. This ruling was based upon standard authority, such at Cuthlug and Grant, the de cisions of many courts like the Supreme court and the court of Appeals of New York. The latter la the uniform practice lu the Uni ted States House of Representa tives, and the great weight of En glish authorities, both parliamen tary aad judiolary. The law of Oregoa providing for the filling of vacancies la the electoral college recognises a vacancy only In cases where there has been an Incum bent and such Incumbent has died, refused to act, neglected to attend, or otherwise absent. In this case there was no incumbent unless the next highest candidate should take the position, and there waa no vacancy which could be filled by the other membera of the elec toral' college. The next highest candidate eligible under the con stilutlon of th United States was therefore certified to be duly elect ed. L. F. G rover, Governor of Oregon. Washington. Dec. 12.
