FouRTn of July. The members of
Albany Fire Company held a meeting
the other night, and resolved to celebrate
the 4th in a becoming manner. As the
Brass Band cannot be had on any other
day, Friday, the 2d, has been selected as
the day which shall be honored. A pro
cession will be formed and march to
Hackleman's prove, or some other poiut,
where the Declaration of Independence
will be read, oration delivered, and
other ceremonies appropriate to the ooca
mou had. Citizens generally are invited
Large, Larger, Laoest. LastKreek
Mr. J. A. Millard presented us with
some fine specimens of strawberries raised
by him, which we thought could hardly
be excelled. This week, however, he
brought us another lot that '-knock's the
socks" off of anything "previous." One
variety, knowu as' the "Hooker," were
huge, resembling tomatoes in size. One
stein contained twenty or thirth fully
ripe and large-sized berries, of the "Green
Prolific'' variety. This latter variety
suits us, as three or four such bunches
would fill a quart measure, rendering the
gathering of them no trick at all. When
it comes to large strawberries and "lots"
of them, Millard discounts all other
growists so far.
, Leg Broke. Mr. A. Uulin had the
misfortune to break his leg on .Moday
last. lie was riding along by the Fair
Ground fence when his horse became
frightened, and jumping side-ways threw
him from the saddle. His left foot re
maining iu the stirrup, he was dragged
some distance before it was released,
thereby receiving several bruises about
the head and body, besides breaking the
Jog. The leg is broken between the
knee and ankle. Dr. Tate attended to
the broken limb and Mr. II. is doing
nicely at present.
Kev. I. D. Driver. This able di
vine, Agent for the American Bible So
ciety, delivered one of his most thrilling
and able discourses at the Court House
in this city on last Sabbath morning. A
la r audience was in attendance, and
the most profound attention was given
to his discourse throughout. The M. E.
Church has no abler minister on this
-coast. A liberal collection was lifted at
the conclusion of the discourse.
Goods at 'Frisco Prices. Messrs.
P. W. Spink & Co. are now receiving a
large invoica of cooking stoves and furn
ishing goods which, from this date, they
intend selling at San Francisco retail pri-
ces. To become satisfied of this fact, call
and see. Their stock is the largest west
New Warehouse. Messrs. Beach &
Monteith have commenced the erection
of a new grain depository an addition
or extension to the south end of their
mill building. When this addition is
completed they will be enabled to store
one hundred thousand bushels of grain
with ease. ,
Invited. The Fire Department of
Portland have invited Albany Fire Com
ipany to participate with them in the 4th
of July festivities in that city, and the
boys talk strongly of accepting.
Collected. Sheriff Irvine returned
to the County Commissioners, the present
week, $2,300, delinquent taxes for the
jears 1866-7, collected by him. As a
collector our sheriff is a success.
Bruised. Down on the Fair Ground
the other day, young Nanny was thrown
from a horse which he was exercising,
and received some severe brnies j nothing
Found. A nice little fur cuff, or
wrist warmer, or whatever it may bo,
was picked up on the street and left at
this office to be handed to the owner on
application. Call and get it.
Pictures. The present clear weather
is just the time to get good pictures,
and Mr. J. A. Winters, at the "Picture
Gallery," is the man to print 'em.
Packets. The P. T. Co. run but
two regular packets per week daring the
present stage of low water and scant
Personal. J. B. Sprenger and
Jacob Cam, of Portland, visited our city
daring the week.
Ice. A small lot of ice was received
in this city daring the week.
As Important Annual. Mr. D.
Ualpruner has laid on our table a valu
able work entitled, "The American Year
Book and National Register" for 1869,
published by O. D. Case & Co., Hartford,
Connecticut. There is no publication in
the same line that equals it. It presents,
in a compact and practical manner, the
most valuable statistics of every kind.
It is a complete record of the year's
doings. A? a reference for the business
man, the student, the politician, it is the
most valuable work issued from the press.
It is a complete gathering of all informa
tion, and no man's library is complete
without it. "Recollections of a Busy
Life," written by Horace Greeley, a work
of 000 pages, is another invaluable book
that should be perused by every reading
man and woman in the couutry. Mr.
Ualpruner is soliciting subscribers for
both the above works, and the reading
public cannot invest money in reading
matter to better advantage than iu tbeir
Phcenix Insurance Company. The
advertisement of this sterling company
appears in this morning's paper. The
old Phoenix ha been represented on this
coast for over twelve years, during which,
we understand, losses, amounting to
nearly 5400,000 have been honorahly ad
justed and promptly paid. For the past
six years the business of the company
has been under the management of Mr.
11. II. Magill, who, it is evident, is well
versed in the duties of his profession, as
under his supervision the business and
the popularity of thecompany has been
greatly increased. The Phcenix does
an independent business, declining to
play "slop bowl" to any concern or set of
concerns j they believe in honorable
treatment towards their representatives
and patrons, and are not to be purchased
or curbed by any "ring," or induced to
sacrifice friends that they may gather the
crumbs promised them as they fall from
the table spread by their enemies. We
have only to add, if you want insurance
iu a solid company," with an agent who
understands his business, and can bind
the contract without delay, call ou the
agent of the Phoenix Insurance Company
and insure at once; remembering that
delays are dangerous, and that the best
is the cheapest. E. F. llussel, Esq., is
agent for the Phoenix in this city.
Gang Plows. Mr. C. F. Gay, in
ventor of the "Gay" Plow, having made
arrangements to go extensively into the
manufacture of his plows at Portland,
has takcu up his residence in that city,
having left Albany the first of the pres
ent week. As will be seen by reference
to his advertisement, Messrs. John
Briggs and J. Barrows & Co. are agents
for the sale of the "Gay" Plow in Linn
and Benton counties.
Rag Carpet. Mr. J. R. McCIure
brought to this office for our inspection
some homemade rag carpet that excels
any we have seen in looks and work.
Mrs. McCIure is certainly an expert in
the weaving business. Mr. McCIure of
fers to add two dollars to the premium
offered for the best rag carpet, by the
Linn County Agricultural Association at
its next Fair, with any one who will
compote with him in this line, his idea
being simply to ascertain if it is possible
to make a better rag carpet than his wife

and will fit any stove or range. They are used
extensively in the East, and the following will
show how they are regarded :
From the Toledo Commercial, April 22d, 1S69 j
'The Automatic Clothes-Washer." The new
method of washing clothes without labor as done
by the "Automatic Clothes Washer and Boiler,"
is attracting, as might naturally be supposed, a
good deal of attention. This remarkable machine
continues to show to astonished visitors, whose
numbers are daily increasing, how simply and
easily a large days washing ean be effectually ac
complished in comparatively short time by this
labor saving invention.
From the Cleveland Plaindealer, March 12th,
1S63 : "The Automatic Clothes Washer. Noth
ing in the way of a patent has for a long time
awakened such a general interest, as the above
named invention. Washing without labor by the
mere force of heat, is a step so important and now
that it naturally excites a great deal of inquiry.
The genuine merit, the cheapness and simplicity,
must make it an article of universal use, and those
seeking an investment cannot do better than to
look into it. j

the largest return ever made by any Company in
the same period.
The Company give credit when desired, of from
33 to 50 per cent, of premiums.
An illustration of the advantages of the credit
system as practiced by this Company, is the case
of H. C. Coe, of Yonkers, who insured his life in
this Company for $5,000, in February, 1857, pay
ing the whole premium in cash, $118 ; at the end
cf the first year it was impossible for him to raise
the amount of the premium then due, in cash,and
he cane to the office prepared to surrender the
policy. Being told that he could give his note
for the premium, he did so. His death occurred
in less than seven months. His family are now
in the enjoyment of the amount insured. Bad
he insured in an "all cash" Company, they would
have been left unprovided for.
This is, in itself, a complete refutation of the
absurd statement of ''all cash" Companies, that
it is injurious for the insurer to have the power to
give a note under any circumstances.
