Jubilant. An ordinauee passeil our
City Council (see proceedings in another
column),on Thursday. ni.ht,-appropriating
S2,000 lor the purchase of a fire
engine for the use of Albany Fire Co.
. No 1. Of course this action of the
Council tweets with the hearty approba
tion of the members of the Fire Compa
uy'and a nmjority of our citizens. The
boys generally feel jolly, ind join in
the expression, "liully for the Council !"
Tiie -..Twesty-Skcond Ball. The
ball on the night of the 22d, at Parrish
ttall iu this city, given ly Albany Fire
Company No. 1, was a grand success.
So far as we have heard an expression,
the opinion is the most favorable. The
hall was most handsomely decorated and
lighted tip, principally through the exer
tions and management of the Foreman
of the Company,' Jos. Webber, and his
1st and -d Assistants, Messrs. Farrcli
and. Rogers. The programme for danc
ing was so arranged as to please every
body a thing very rarely accomplished.
The supper a general donation affair,
i provided almost entirely by the ladies of
our city was another success, a big fea
ture of the evening. It is usual to say,
iic, but conscientiously, now, we can't
say we heard the tables groan any to
speak of, but there was no lack of pas
tries or substantial ; and after all had
partaken freely, there were a number of
bplen Jidly frosted cakes, pies, hams
chickens, etc., left, which were disposed
of at private sale the next day. It was
decidedly the most pleasant party we
have attended for veais. The total re
ceipts were S197 25; expenditures, $117
25, leavixig 80 as net profit to the Coni-
Suggestion. We have been inform
cd that the Four blocks immediately sur
rounding Albany College, belong to that
corporation. These Collepe grounds arc
just far enough from the centre cf basi
ness for a pleasant evening or morning
walk. By the judicious expenditure of a
ruull amount ot money now, in the way
of erecting a fence, planting a few trees
nd sowing with blue grass, - in a short
time the College grounds would be the
most attractive place in our city. Thus
a in nrnrl r cr q it i 1 in n r i fri mv t V a trrAii ml
lUiIUI ill U I IA wuuviljlUp LUU s ta -e
would not only enhance their value, but
the value of property in the immediate
vicinity. ' With other eities and towns in
Oregon, we have nothing io the way of
a plaza or park which is fee to the gene
Tal public. From suggestions made to
us by different citizen, we believe that
all will give liberally toward decorating
the grounds aboTe mentioned, and making
them an ornament to our eity. At pre
sent they arc of no practical utility what
ever. What say those in authority ?
1'lowino. Our farmers are making
use of the fine weather we arc at present
enjoying, plowing, harrowing, and in
some instances sowing urain. The trav
' cling ! hereabouts is very fair generally,
the roads in "spots" already getting
dusty, and should the present delightful
weather hoid a few days louger, the
roads' everywhere will be in splendid
condition. Water has even disappeared
from some of tho sloughs. As a conse
quence of a lack of rain the river is
again very low and navigation difficult
"Bat CoDE."Mo8t every man you
meet complains of a 'bad code"; "nodze
stopped, up, kan'd 'ardly brede." It
seems to be a kind of distemper that has
spread over the country like an epidem
ic. If we had been visited -with the
usual amount of "mist" at this season,
' instead of the beautiful weather we are at
present enjoying, we would have "missed"
the colds. " However, hope soon to get
used to dry weather.
Resolutions of Thanks At a
called meeting of Albany Fire Co. No. 1,
- on Tuesday evening, the following reso
lution was unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That a vote of thanks is
hereby tendered to D. Froman, Esq., for
the free use of the Hall ; to the- Ladies,
who so generously aided in arranging the

supply of eatables for the occasion.

Ixcorrkct. Rumer had it a day or
two ai;o that the P.T. Co.'s steamer.

L. W. DOOLITTLE, Recorder.
The American Indians are reported to
be giving the Spanish-American soldiers
on the frontiers of Chili all they want to
do. General Pinto was sent against the
Indians with an army of three thousand
men, but does not sem to have effected
much; as at the last accounts the Indians
had besieged three forts, and were with
difficulty repulsed. The Arancanians
are probably the bravest and most manly
race ot Indians in south America
They feel that civilization is encroach
ing upon their territories, and must be
driven back. Their hope is that in the
mountain fastnesses they may beat back
the bpamsh invaders. .
In this city, on the 20th inst., George Hurr,
