Sad Catastrophe. On last Satur
day evening, the Gth inst., in this city,
little daughter of Mose. Parker, E.j.,
Alice, aged five years, met with an acci
dent which resulted in her death about
one o'clock on Monday morning follow
.ving... Alise. with.SQino other children,
were playing around a fire near Mr.
Richardson's residence, when approach
ins: too near the flames, her clothins
caught fire, and before relief was obtain
: ed the little girl was terribly burned
about the limbs and body, causing her
death as above stated. In her efforts to
extinguish the burning clothing, Mrs.
Parker, the mother of the little girl, burn
. ed her hands badly, the right hand al
most to a crisp. It was thought at first
that Mrs. Parker would have to suffer
amputation of the right hand, but Dr.
Alexander, from whom we learn the
above facts, says that this suffering will
" be spared her, but she will in all proba
bility lose the use of the right thumb.
Sunday Amusements. On last Sun
day afternoon our citizens were startled
-out of their usual propriety by the occur
rence of a runaway on First street. Mr.
Leo. Fox, accompanied by two young
ladies from Corvallis, was driving a pair
of greys down Front street, when from
some canse they became unmanageable
and started down the street at the top of
their speed. On reaching Baker street,
Mr. Fox succeeded in turning the team
into that street, where the buggy was up
set and the occupants thrown out. The
pole of the vehicle breaking, the horses
became , dctatched therefrom, otherwise
serious injury might have befel the
whole party. . The ladies, we are happy
to learn, received no injury. MV: Fox
was considerably 'bruised, and was com
pelled to keep bis room for some days,
sit was a providential escape.
Fivax Seed. As will be seen by an
advertisement in this issue, Mr. E. Cart
wright, late owner in the oil mills at Sa
lem, has obtained the sole agency for
tnis otace ior xurnisning nax seea. aie
furnishes the large seed, to all farmers
who wish to cultivate flax, as a loan.
At present there is not enough flax grown
in Oregon and California to supply the
mills opperating. : The mills in San
Francisco will ! require the product of
from eight to ten thousand acres of flax
from Oregon, to fully supply their wants.
Takmg one year with another, it is
thought the cultivation of flax will pay
equally as well as wheat, in Oregon.
An opportunity is offered to all who may
wish to. try the experiment, to obtain
feed withomt the outlay of money: Call
eo Mrv Cartwright, and get tke wed, and
necessary information. :
Accommodating. A few days since,
as one of the P. T. Company's steamers
had swung out from the wharf and was
starting on heri way down the river, a
lady appeared on the wharf, and waived
her handkerchief in token of her desire
to be takeu ou board. The gallant Cap
tain of the steamer brought his vessel
back to the wharf, and waited until the
lad-, who had f-otue friends on board,
had bid her farewells, given and received
the p;:rtingkisrf, and betaken her to terra
firtna again, when the whistle screeched,
the wheel commenced its evolutions, aud
once more the noble steamer and gallant
Captain proceeded on their way. Now,
after tins exhibition ol politeness 011 the
part of the "soulless mouopu'y,"' the man
who would .-.ay that there is no accommo
dation in the officers of the P. T. Co.,
should bo instantly shot with a double- j
barrelled pack-saddle. Almost any
where else, however, such an accommo
dating spirit U as rare ns it is coumend

Internal Revenue. Assistant As
sessor of Internal Revenue for l)ivisiou

the counties of Linn, Lane and Beuton,

Engine House. At a meeting of
tho Fire Company ou last Saturday night,
it was determined to build a hall, and a
committee appointed to solicit subscrip
tions for that purpose. The hall is to be
built on Second, between Ferry arrd
Broadalbin streets ; is to be 20x40 feet,
two stories high, and will cost lot 200,
housft aobut 300. It was suggested
that the Council could use the hall for
meeting purposes. This is a first rate
idea, and will be a great saving to the
city in the long run. Work on the hall
is to be commenced immediately.
Information Wanted. The rela
tives of L.vwsoN M. McKern are very
anxious to hear from or of him. When
last heard from by them he was in Santa

year ago, since when they have not been
able to get any tidings of him. Any ono
knowing his whereabouts, or anything
concerning him, will confer a great favor
by forwarding such information to I. S.

papers will confer a favor by copying

Value ok Railroads to Farmers.
The Agriculturalist puts up this mat
ter as follows : "To haul forty bushels
of corn fifty miles on a wagon, costs at
least 12 for team, driver and expenses.
A railroad would transport it for 8 at
ircst. Allowing an average of forty
bushels per acre, the crop would be SS
more per acre, at H per cent, i n 100.
As tho relative advantage is about the
same for other crops, it is clear that a
railroad passing through a town would
add ten per cent, to the farms. A town
ten miles square contains U,000 acres.
An increase of 100 per acre is equal to
(5,400,000, or enough to build two hun
dred miles of railroad, even if it cost
12,000 per mile. But two hundred
miles of road, would extend through
twenty towns, ten miles square, and cost
but 10 per acre if taxed upon the land
These figures are given merely as an il
lustration. If the farmers had taxed
themselves to build all the railroads in
this country, aud given them away to
any companies that would stock and run
them, the present increased value of their
land would have well repaid tor all qut-lav.
