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. When the Count
Gurowski, in 1803-4. wis writing his
comments on men and thinjrs- most of
which came nearer the mark than uninspir
prophesy usually comes General Grant
was just finishing his brilliant western
campaign, and coming east to take the
more important rank and position which
had been thrust upon him. " 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

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.

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
