It may not be generally known that there Is a special reason why the Royal Welsh Fusiliers should have a goat. They are a very ancient corps, and at an early period of their exlutence it was ths custom to have a goat with a shield and garland on its horns to inarch at the bead of the drums. Every lat of March being the anuiveraary of their tutelary saint, David, tho oftioers used to give an entertainment, and after the cloth was taken away a bumper was filled around to tho Prince ot Wales, and the goat, richly caparisoned for the occasion, was led thrice around the table in procession by tho drum major.

ItKtOUTKB, A J AT NT INTOjrillS COCNTRV. Ivurly Monday morning we left the nolaeand hubbub of theclty, and wend ed our way toward the I.uckiaruuU), to visit fnriiicrs and take some olrvatiou of their harvesting operations, We first called at the residence of Mr. Lew nam, who came to Oregon in IBM, set tled with his fut bur In Marioti oouuiy, and afterwards removed to Folk, where fur years he has been engaged iu farm ing, and at time In the butchering business, He rained a fair crop of grain this year, and has generally been suc cessful In his tabor, lie has a nice home near Monmouth, aud his future pnniecta appear euoouraglng. The next person we Interviewed was Mr. John Hums, one of the proprietors of the flouring mill on the Luckluiuute. The mill la in continuous operatloii, its Hour standing fair In the market; lu fact, there is a demand for all the out put of the mill. Mr. Bums has a large tract of land, from which he derives eousldvrablo revenue, lie is a geutlo- mau with whom It is a pleasure to meet and exchange: views, AttheiryosidenceweniKtMr, Amos llolnmii aud bis wife, who received us with due consideration. Auk is a son of lion. James llolmso, now diwaaed, who served several terms as sherilf of Polk county, aud we think was twice elected representative of Polk in our legislature, Amos llolmau Is an tudus- trlous fanner, cultivaU his land well, and is generally well rewarded for his labors. His yield of wheat this year wss thlrty-lbrt buahcls per acre. At the farm of rmuel Tethcrow we found Uie thresher at work finishing up the thrcshlug of this year's crop. Samuel is living on the farm, which was originally the donation laud claim of his father, Holomon Tetherow, who came to Oregon In 1H45, aud who died several year ago. , Holomou Tetherow was wull known In Folk county as a man of generous Impulses, and a worthy and highly resected neighbor. Ills several children aud graudchlldren are respected member of society. ' We were heartily invited to partake of the delicacies of the seasou at the hospitable home of U. 11 Tedro. Mr. Tedro has a beautiful farm of 3-D acres, is living coutcutedty aud peacefully lo bis now ailvanclug years, aud Is appar ently free from care as to future wauts. Ills yield of wheat this year was alwut thirty bushels per acre. Wo pursued our travel, crossed the Lucklumute, and called at the resi dence of .Mrs. Bmlth, who, with her son Marion, Is enjoying a happy old age. The health of Mrs. Smith had been somewhat Impaired for some weeks past, but at the time of our visit she was slowly recovering her usual health. Mrs Bmlth Is now ou the eve of her eightieth year, has a remarkably reten tive memory, and can recall many rem iniscences connected with the early sot tltmieut of the Luckiamute valley, About one-fourth of a mile front Mrs. Bmlth resides It. D.fitaats, who owns a rich and productive farm, which, un der his system of cultivation, brings him in yearly a handsome income. Henry was not at home when we called, but we met hint on the road on his return from Alrlle, where he lsstor iughlsgraiu. His yield of wheat this year was forty-three bushels per acre. It Is predicted by his neighbors that Henry Is to become one of the wealthy nieu of Folk comity. His bou Tracy is a student at the Monmouth normal school, aud will graduate this year. A couple of miles' drive brought us toAlrllo, which preseutedasceiieof un usual activity. , Wagons loaded with grain were coming iu, aud nt the ware house everything was life aud activity. The Hastings Bros, were'dolug a fair business lu the mercantile Hue, They also run the warehouse. They had lot out 30,000 grain sacks, and were coiill dent of receiving at least oue-thlrd more grain this year than during any preced lug year. The coal mine, not far from here, was attracting considerable atteu' Won, aud should It prove as rich as aiv tlcipatcd we may soon look for au ox tension of tho railroad from here to the coast, Our little Myrtle was toddling around lively and aotlve, and greeted us with smiles dimpling her rosy cheeks. We wish Alrlle a prosperous future. Night was now near at hand, so, driving to the residence of J, 0. Btaats, our newly elected representative, we were reoeived cordially by himself aud wife, and bade us to enter the doni' Idle. Their daughter Bortha is an accomplished young lady, and we had the pleasure of affixing our nutograph to a few lines traced in her album. The memory of the nights passed at the rest donoe of J. O. Stunts will not soon be obliterated. We called upon our friend Paul Hll terbraud, with whom we crossed tho plains lu 1845. We found him and his wife at home, and enjoying themselves as well as circumstances would permit, Mrs. Hiltorbrand was sutTcrlug some from a slight nlt'ectlon of her eyes, whllo Paul wasjust recovering from an attack of typhoid fever. They have a lino farm, aud a beautiful residence location. They have the most exten sive and thrifty looking orchard we have Ken In our rounds. Mr. II liter' Highest of all la Leavening Powet. Latest U, S. Gov't Report OrS&i-fl ty JG3S33I brand's wheat turned out well, and he ha twelve acres in hops which promise a bountiful yield, as at present they are thrifty and free from insects. Paul is a son -In-law of the old pioneer Solomon Tetherow, with whom he crossed the plain Iu 1845. In the evening we called upon WU Uant Williams, living near by upon the donation land ot hi father and mother, who came to Oregon In 1845. William, or Bill, a he I generally called, is the owner of WO acre of laud as flue a "lays out of doors," and that land of itself is almost a prluoely fortune. Ja,Wltllams, his father, was one of the first territorial legislators, and we need not assure old settlers that he wa a Democrat well founded In the faith. We visited II. F. Smith, our friend "Doo,"aud found bim busily engaged In baling oat straw. Doc always looks out for a coming winter, and provides bountifully for the stock under bis care, so that when storms come they do not appeal to him iu vain fur food and shelter. "Doc" Is a model farmer, and all his surroundings Indicate a home where peace and plenty prevail, The Simpson farm was our next stop ping place, where we found our county commlsslouer busily engaged with hi thresher, glvanlug up his wheat. His yield of grain averaged about thirty, three bushels per acre. He had one small field yleldlug fifty. Tills land has been lu continuous cultivation for forty-six years, aud produces as bounti fully as at the first.

Wecontlnued on to the residence of Joseph Hubbard, nearSuver, He also wa from home, but when a kindly invlutiou was extended to us by Mrs. Hubbard to alight and partake of din ner, of course we accepted. In due course of time, we, with Mrs. Hubbard aud her accomplished daughters, sat oursolvvs arouud the family board and ' partook of viands such as ouly the farmer's wife and daughter can provide for the weary traveler. After dinner all retired to the handsomely adorned parlor, where the Misses Hubbard most pleasurably entertained us with both vocal and instrumental music in a most enchanting tuauoer. 'Twos a most enjoyable time, and we here teuderour acknowledgments for the favors extended to us. ; We called upon James Wheeler, and found bim, a usual superintending his farming operations. His crop of grain yielded well. " He contemplates ceasing from active forming.

A UVBSTIUH OF LAW. In the Statemiutn' local columns on Monday last appeared the following Item: . .

Of course thetellow would have made no'objec tion had he known that when a crime is committed on a river or lake that forms the boundary Hue between two comities, thejurlsdlotiou of either county extends a mile on either side. But sections No. Bib) and 1217 of the code will enlighten hi in on the sub ject. The Item that called forth this ebulli tion was as follows: v Tho steamer Yonug was burned nt her landing iu Folk county, but the preliminary examination occurred in Salem. Docs Marlon couuty have t o stand the costs? This is nothing more than a mild Inquiry as to the facts. We fail to see that there is any kick In it. As to Ignorance, before we arc through with this matter we believe we will be able to demonstrate that tho Statesman has 8 corner on that article. Sections 1210 aud 1217 of the code read as follows: Boo. 1210. When a crime is com mitted on or within ono mile of the boundary line of two or more counties, or when the boundary line between two or more counties Is unknown or uncertain, aud It Is doubtful in which county such crime was committed, an action therefor may bo commonced and tried In either county. Hoc. 1217, When a crime is com mitted upon any bay, lake, river, or water, situate in two or more counties, or forming the bouudary between two orniore counties, an action therefor may be commenced and tried in any county bordering ou such bay, lake, river, or other water, and opposite to tne place wuore uie crime was conv mlttod. The boundary linos between some of the counties of Oregon are very indefi nite, in some instance being the sum' mit of a mountain range, and no one can toll exactly whore the summit is. It was to cover cases of crime com mitted in such localities that sootlon 1210 of the code was adopted. It ap plies only to oases where there Is a doubt as to what county the crime was committed in; but the allwise States man has construed It to meau that a peace officer from Polk county could arrest a resident of Salem in Balcm for a crime committed here and forcibly take bim to Folk county for trial The Idea Is absurd and contrary to Art. VI of the constitution of the United States, which reads: In all criminal prosecution the so cused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial Jury of the state and district wherein the crime shallhave been committed, which dlatrict shall have been previously as certained bylaw. But this question ha been passed upon by an Oregon court. In the esse of State v. Huber, charged with shooting a man named Johnson, near the boundary line between Columbia ; and Washington counties, Huber was brought to Hlllsboro for trial, and Judge Taylor, on becoming satisfied that the crime wa committed in Columbia county, sent the case there for trial. Bee. 1217 applies only where the crime is committed "on the water," but we assume that even the State imtn is aware that when a boat is tied op to the shore or a wharf, it becomes a part of the shore so far a Jurisdiction la concerned. For fear, however, that the Ski toman may still be in doubt a to the correctues of our position, we cite section 1 1 of the constitution of the state of Oregon. Sec. 11. . In all criminal prosecu tion the accuiKd shall have the right to public trial by an impartial jury in the couuty in wbioli the offense snail have becu committed. It may be as well to state for the benefit of the ignoramus who wrote the local item in the Statatman that we have consulted four of the leading attorneys of tbls city aud they all agree that the Democrat Is right. We are glad the matter has been brought up, as it is of considerable im portance to Marion couuty, and we advise Judge Hubbard to carefully in vestigate the question before allowing any fees hereafter in such cases.
