'' ' The same paper has the following items: From Theodore; Pyle, just re turned from atrip to Canyon City, Grant county, we learn that good placer dig gings have recently been discovered on Accident. Day before yesterday as a man named French was driving his team on the road leading from Spriugville over the mountains, he was surrounded by the heavy fires in the timber, and very narrowly escaped with his life. The burning limbs and trees were falling all around. However, he attempted to make his way through the burning tim ber, and when in its midst, a large tree fell directly upon- his wagon and team, killing one of his horses and injuring the other so badly that it was thought' that it would be necessary to kill it. Mr.1 rrench was also badly, but not danger ously hurt, by some of the branches of the falling tree. We learn- that on the mountain above Springville, on the road leading to Tualatin Plains, the fire is still buruiug over a large area. Several teams have made attenrpts to travel that road, but have all failed tosucceed in getting through. Orryonian. "Genehal Grant.

" How fond this giant is," said the ecccutric count, of violating military regulations ! Grant establishes his headquarters ten miles nearer the army than Meade had his. That is not a Potomac Srmy custom. Then ho' travels, with the simplicity of a second lieutenant, without fuss, with a small trunk which he forgets in his rom, and, to save time, noes off leavinz it be hind.

The effect of the dissolving Washington acids was tried upon him not only then, but afterwards under more trying circumstances. The diamond certainly received no harm. commencement of old age, and says the Greeks regarded the age of 49 (seven times seven, their climacteric number) as the culminating point of human strength. Another French writer, Mr. Flourens. however, holds that decadence does not commence until the 70th year. The Chinese call men who have attained that ago " rare birds," and those who reach the 90th year " old loiterers." The two climacteric ages of the Arabs were G3 (7 times 9) and 81.(9 times 9). The first was considered the grand cli macteric among the ancients, and those who passed it were accustomed to con gratulate each other. Physiologists rec ognize the existence of' two sources of strenth in the constitution ; one is called the force in use, aud the other the re serve force. Doubtless the period of de cadence bpars some relation to the period required for full development. Those who are long in arriving at the full ma turity their powers, as a general ru'e, are lonjin losing their store of reserved furce. Bodily strength" may be compar ed to a water-power. During the period of growth, the surplus vitality, is used iu development, as force is expelled in building structures to raise the head and fall of water. Through the term -jf mid dle life, the supply of strength greatly exceeds that expended in work, and the surplus quietly passes off like uuused water over the waste weir. When the period of decadence arrives, the stream begins to diminish. There is no longer a residue of uuused force. During the day there is no flow of water over the weir, aud a whole night is required to briDg the head and flow to its accustom ed height. Every resource for supply is employed, and care is taken to prevent the escape of uuusxjd furee. Gradually the constitution i enfeebled, but has not even power to repair bodily waste. The weir crumbles, the leakages are uo longer cheeked. Slower and .'-lower turns the wheel of life, until at hist, by some sud den diversion, its scanty supjjiy is cut off, and it has forever ceased to move. . A DnjiiiiTFur- Country. A writer says: 1 ionua m-v be tlie " land ot promise," but Texas is the land of '' var mints." In clearing the ground to-pitch my tent, I killed a water moccasin'"; about three o'clock in the morning I was waked up by the barking of a dog ; he had just run a rattlesnake out of my neighbors' teut, when the rattling and barking aroused me nine rattles cap tured, I again lay down, aud when day broke, a yellow lizard was cocking his eye at nrc from the ridge pole of my tent. I sprung up, seized my boot to dispatch him, when Io! out of the boot dropped a tarantula ! Exhausted from fright and fatigue. I sank back into a chair; but no sooner done, than I was compelled rapidly to abandon the posi tion, having been stung in the rear by a scorpion ! Besides . the above mishaps we lost a valuable dog byja shark. The dog had jumped overboard from a boat to follow his master to the shore, when the voracious monster caught him. Discovery in Telegraphy. A new discovery in telegraphy is thus heralded: "The discovery does away with all the jars and fluids heretofore used in tele graph offices, and a current of electricity sufficiently strong for all purposes is drawn from mother earth by means of one sheet of copper and one sheet of zinc, which are buried to the depth of two feet, and having four feet of earth between them. To the copperplate wires are at tached, and the current is inexhaustible. Every message sent is recorded by an in strument which receives its power from the buried battery, and which consists of nothing but one sheet of copper and one of zinc. The inventors have applied for a . patent, aud it is hoped that their prayer will be speedily answered, as this discovery of theirs is destined to work a most wonderful change in the art of tel egraphing. This invention will save thousands of dollars to the telegraph com panies, aud is destined to become -uni. versally adopted ou account of its cheap ness and durability. About 500 immigrants in 102 wagons have arrived at San Bernardino, overland. They are families who intend to settle on farms, and mostly from Texas. White parasols are in vogue in London. Victoria carries one. Oue of the most exciting huuting af fairs which has takep place in this section, says the Waupaca Criterion, occurred cn Friday, the 11th ult J near Dr. Perry's mill, in the town of Dupont. Jimmy Doty, a lad of about twelve years, another lad by the name of Case, and a still younger oue whose name we did not learn, were wandering along the road a short distance from the mill, when they came suddenly upon three bears -an old and large he bear with her cubs. Young Doty, who had a gun in his possession, immediately drew up and fired at the old bear in a courageous' manner, but with out any apparent effect, as she wheeled upon the beys, and made at them in the most savage style; the cubs however in in their fright, running up a tree. The Case boy, whj had commenced climbing a tree, as soon as he discovered the ani mals, now safely lodged in a small sap liug near at hand, and the old bear, seem ing to think he was her safest game, tried to climb the tree- As soon as she reared for the purpose, a small deg which belonged to Doty ran up behind and gave her a smart bite in the rear, whereupon her bearbhip, in a very bearlike manner turued upon the dog and chased him some distance off, and then at ouce re turned to the tree to finish Case. But in the meantime, young Doty hand hand ed the gun up to Case, and, with the other small boy, had also climbed a tree. The bear, nothing daunted at the state of affaiis, made for Case's tree again. While climbing, a fair- shot was offered, and Case blazed away knocking Mrs. Bear down to the ground, who now made off. After dragging herself about forty rods she ay down and died! The boy's now came down from, their perches, and coujhienced firing upon the young bears, which still clung to the trees they had climbed, and a few shots brought them to theground. The boys then returned to the mill and told their story, which was hardly credited by those who heard it, but going out to the scene of action, the d im was found, thus veri fying the statement of the boys. But for the courage and presence of mind of the Doty boy. probably the whole three would have lost their lives. - A Mad Wolf. The Leavenworth Times of a lute date gives the following: A most fearful and appalling circum stance tarnspired at the Fort lastevening, the very recollection of which chills my blood with horror. While a party of ladies and gentlemen were sittingiu front of the beautiful quarters of Col. Ed. Wynkoop, Indian Superintendent or Agent 01 sev eral warlike tribes, the eutire party almost involuntarily commenced a beauti ful song. While the melody was ring ing in the night air, a monstrous shaggy and rabid wolf jumped right; into the midst of the party, first attacking Lieuten ant Thompson, United States Infantry, tearing and lacerating his limbs in a frightful manner, then broke away, pur sued by Colonel Wynkoop and his chief scout, James Morrison, who had lost no time in procuring proper arms, lsetore either of these fearless .gentlemen, how ever, could overtake him, 'the wolf had attacked the sentry at the guard house, whom he also bit savagely, the sentinel having fired, but most unlortunately missed his aim.- From the guard house the wolf next dashed over to the hospi al. and made and assault upon one of the men there stationed, almost tearing his right arm from his body, after first taking oft a finger entire, 'lie then attacked and mutilated a colored soldier of the Tenth Cavalry, and subsequently entered the quarters of a laundress, while she was in bed, but owing to thp thickness of the bed' clothes, fortunately failed to inflict any serious injury on the poor woman. The maddened creature next caught sight of the sentinel at the hay stacks, who, almost providentially hot him dead. Besides Lieutenant Thomp son there are three persons badly bitten and mutilated by this monster. The Blue Mountain Tim:s learns that good placer diggings have recently been discovered ou a fork of Canyon : Creek, thirteen miles from Canyon City. Two new discoveries have, also been made in Baker county, not far from Auburn, which will undoubtedly . become good camps in the spriog.
