Said 'to be the best match ever played. The Result. As we indicated last week, Hon. S. Garfielde lias been elected Delegate to Congress from Washington Territory, but the majorities may not count up as large as we were at first led to believe. However, an able advocate of Union principles is elected over all combinations of the enemy, and W. T. is O K. . Incest Suicide. A telegram dated Jacksonville, June loth, says a man named Oliver Evans conirmttec suicide in that valley, on the Monday previous, under horrible circumstances. He was - charsed with incest with his own dauah ter, a girl of sixteen. He went to the mountains and shot himself. The body was found yesterday, badly decomposed. The girl has confessed that the charge was true. He was a widower, and leaves considerable property. , o ' 'VnitT,rti " I fi r- nafliA'il The Northern Pacific Railroad Com- pany intend to commence work on their road Immediately, according to the asser tion of the Detroit Post. The same pa per says it is enabled to state, upon good authority, that Messrs. J. Cooke, J. Edgar Thompson and Thomas Scott, proprietors of the Mississippi and Lake Superior (better known as the St. Paul and Lako Superior) Railroad, recently had a protracted conference with the President, W. L. Banning, the result of which is instructions have been iven to push forward the construction of the Northern Pacific Railway, and that in compliance with these instructions the work will be commenced as soon as the spring opens. It is estimated that $10, 000,000 will be required to put the road through to the Red river of the north nd to obtain this amount the stock will bo divided into 200 shares, or such num ber as will enlist it. This much of the work accomplished, they will then confi dently appeal to the Government for aid to carry the road beyond the Rocky Mountains. The work will be commenced at the head of Lake Superior, in accord ance with the terms of the charter. The gentlemen who have determined to take the initiative step in this great enterprise are not the men to rush blindly into so great a work, nor are" they the men to fail in any undertaking. . They have made themselves thoroughly acquainted with the character of the country on the line of this great thoroughfare, and are fully satisfied with the prospects. Of the character of the country tho Post cars : The line extends through one of the most wonderful regions in the world. Its . fertile soil, vast mineral wealth, beautiful . climate, and the character 6f the termini, all tend to prove unmistably that the route is one that has been marked out by nature herself. In the first place it is several hundred miles shorter from lake to ocean than, the Central Pacific. It encounters no mountain passes over 5,000 ' feet in height, while on the other route there are no fewer than eight or . nine passes of over , 7,000 feet, ; Instead of running, like the Central Pacific, through long stretches of barren country, which can furnish no traffic to a road, there is no section through which it passes which .is not remarkable either for the fertility of .its soil or ks mineral wealth. Its ad vantages with regard to climate influences are still more remarkable. From the Red river Taller to the Pacific, its course lies wholly within the isothermal region. .. . -ii i . i j . where tnere win oe no interruption iron, snows. ; The climate in this region is so imild that the buffaloes have always come several hundred miles from the south to winter, there and crop the herbage when it is buried beneath immense snow banks in their summer haunts. .... i ,.' Editor Register: v, . Your correspondent having taken an excursion into the southern and eastern parts of Marion county, for the purpose of inspecting the crops, stock, etc., passed into your county, and remained a couple of days in Albany Prairie. Hia obser vations and suggestions, if of any account, are at your disposal for publication. From Washington Butte, the natural and magnificent "observatory" of Linn county, a person can look down on a most beautiful and charming panorama, spread out before him in all the beauty of land scape and hill and dale scenery. At this time of the year, Flora is lavish of her gifts, and a carpet of green is spread out; and the vast fields of graiu waive in view, and the fKcks and herds feast on the luxuriant grasses. Albany Prairie is doubtless the finest district in the Wil lamettc Valley for general farming pur poses. It must contain not less than three hundred square miles of rich arable land. Much of this land is rather level for successful cultivation in its present condition, but I observe that all of it can be successfully drained ; and when drain ed is the very best tillable land. Under ground drains can be made cheaply, but of great benefit, in the following manner : Plow a land some ten feet wide the whole length of tho slough or swail, and throw out the middle a3 deeply as possible with the plow. Then use tho shovel and slant the sides down to the depth of from two to four feet. Then place split sticks of the size of large fence rails, two side by side and one on top. Then upon these place straw or old mats of hay and weeds Upon the whole of these fill in the dirt, and make the surface a . level one. The land can be plowed and harrowed over this without interruption. The supera bundant water will collect in this ditch and run off, and the surrounding land will become dry, mellow and very pro ductive. These swails, thus prepared, are superior for timothy meadows, as well as for wheat, oats, peas, etc. The lack of timber can be remedied effectual ly, so far as fencing is concerned, by osage orange hedges. There have been strong doubts entertained hereabouts by many as to the success of the osage orange for hedges in thi3 valley. I saw a hedge on the farm of Mr. Joel Huston 12 miles southeast of Albany, in 1863 and again at this time. He obtained one bushel of seed from Illinois about 1 years ago, and planted a portion of it in a nursery, and transplanted the scions in lines where they were to crow. His health was poor all the time, and he did not fully understand the proper mode of cultivating or trimming it. But wherever the plants were headed back the hedge is a perfect barrier to all stock. It is mak ing a very vigorous growth of undertwigs this yetirj and the larger plants, not cut down or pruned for the hedge, are now bearing "apples," as they are called. There will be this year several bushels of the fruit. The seeds of one "apple" of the osage orange on this farm last year numbered 250. A pint of these seeds numbers 4,640. In wet land and in dry land, the hedge is thrifty. There is no barrier against stock of all kinds that is so terrifying to them as this. Having acquired a full knowledge of the whole process of planting, cultivating and trim ming the osage orange in Illinois, the writer would be pleased to communicate it to your readers, but space will not per mit at present. All the early sowed and planted crops in Albany Prairie are good as they now appear. Sheep, horses and cattle, where properly attended, look well here now. The soil fruits and early apples are abund ant, but late apples will be rather scarce. The best and most thrifty orchards are around the "buttes." Wet lands are not good for orchards here nor elsewhere. All the stock of this prairie should be passed away, except such horses, cows and hogs as could be thoroughly taken care of the year round. The fact that wheat is now only fifty cents per bushel, should be no obstacle to the farmers from bringing all Albany. Prairie into a high state of cultivation as fast as possible. There should be three or four artesian wells bored in this prairie, and the water first used for grist mills, then conveyed all over, the settlements in pipes for the supply of water at all the farms for stock and house use. . Not a bushel of grain should ever be sent out of this county, as grain. All should be ground here, and the offals used for the stock The time is near at hand when long trains of , cars will continually pass to and ..fro through this charming district of Willamette valley. ; Ifc is for the farmers to supply the loading for these cars. If they can have fall loads, the price of freight will, of course, be greatly reduced. There are superior "placer diggings all over this prairie!. They lie about twelve inches undeo the euriace of the earth. The pick, shovel and rocker should be some of our superior gang ' plows, with subsoil plows. I he "surface diggings for six inches down are somewhat ex hausted in the old fields, but under that depth, and perhaps for two feet or more down, the "diggings" are rich as ever j and the old tanners and their sons can stay at home with their wives, mothers, sisters and sweethearts, and live comfort ably and well, enjoy good society, schools and church privileges, and yet replenisti their purses liberally with rich "dust. Westward from our "observatory," some ten mile?, is Albany the city of civili zation, wealth, enterprise, schools and churches, and enjoyiug loeal advantages 6econd to none in the great Willamette Valley. Off to the north is Lebanon, famed for i s educational institution, its good morals, its temperance, its beauty. The beautiful blue waters of the Willam ette river pass along cilualy on the west ern edge of this prairie on its'way to the mighty Columbia, and in it to lose itself in the vast Pacific ocean, on whose bosom floats the ships of all civilized nations, foremost of which are those of our Own great nation. Kind and benevolent in peace, but mighty and unconquerable in war; whose escutcheon is the proud eagle, ancLwhose emblem is the stars and stripes the palladium of our liberties, and the pride and. protection of every loyal person in the laud of the free and home of tho brave. Beautiful and en chanting is the scenery far and near from this point. I would that a thous and prominent men from New York, Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis, Charles ton, S. C, and a dozen other great cities of our republic, could stand on our "ob servatory" and with a telescope extend their vision in every direction, bringing the prominent points of this great valley in full view, as well as those vast white pyramids along the cone of the Cascade Mountains the Sierra Nevadas of Cali forniawhich, though seen daily ty us here, are ever new, ever wonderful, and point back to that period of our world's unwritten history when all the western slope of North and South America was one grand theater of volcanic rupture.

Orders have been addressed to Gene rals Sheridan and Schofield to treat the Indians on the four great reservations as hostile, and proceed against them accord ingly, with the view of protection to the citizens of Kansas and elsewhere on the frontier. Representations from Cuba received. They state that there has-been several skirmishes between the Spanish forces under Gen. Lescu and the Cuban forces, resulting in compelling the Spanish to. fall back on Trindad, where they await reinforcements. The Cubans were pre paring to follow up this success and at tack the Spanish forces. Washington, June 13. Coinmission- cr Delano has made a decision on the question submitted by the Board of Bro kers of New York, as to their liability to pay a tax of one-twentieth of one per cent, upon sums received by them for negotia tions of sales. It is said he decides that they are liable as commission merchants for all sales in excess of 500,000 made for or by them, at the rate of one dollar for each thousand, except those made through other wholesale dealers who are taxed as such and sell on .commissioh, and consequently are liable on sales made through commercial brokers. Commer cial brokers are also liable upon all sales negotiated by them at the rate of fifty cents on each $1,000, excepting those made by or for another broker. The Secret-ry of War, in reply to a dispatch from Adjutant General Town- send, says to suspend his order for the dis charge of clerks in the War Deyartment until his return to the city Should tho present military force on the frontier be inadequate to prompily queu tne existing aimcuity with the In dians, authority will be con fered upon Gen. Schofield to raise volunteers for this purpose The Bureau of Internal Revenue has received authority from the War Depart ment to .use U. S. troops in North Caro lina when necessary to cary out the inter nal Revenue law. This grows out of the fact that there is a large number of distil leries in that State the proprieters of which continue to evade the law, and put the. revenue omcers at defiance. Washington, June 12. Information is received that two expeditions number ing 600 safely landed in Cuba, and joined the revolutionary forces. Desertion from tho Spanish forces are increasing. There are frequent collisions between tho Span ish troops and the volunteers, and the difficulties between these parties are lr reconcilable. The Cubans have organ ized their forces into two army corps, one being under uen.-Jordon. Jcingagements are daily expected. The Cubans are con fident ; of victory. f Jordon has 2,000 Americans in nis corps. Yfc-MH.--m.K T ' "I O ft . ' . xviuttuonii, uune io. a auel ; was fought on Saturday afternoon between Capt. M.'E.

Leavenworth, June 15. -A special from Ellsworth says the Indians arc again at their murder work about thirty-five miles north of Solomon City. Twenty men are reported killed. A party of men followed the Indians, but discovering that they were in large force, did not at tack them. Gen. Harney arrived at Sa lina yesterday and lefc this morning for the scene. News was received from Sol omon City and Salina this afternoon, askiug for protection of the settlers. A force of armed men left yesterday and another to day. Capt. Whitney leaves to-uiorrow for Shellman. His company are mostly settlers, armed. . Upper Columbia. A correspondent of the Oregonian, writing from the Dalles, gives rather a discouraging ac count of the present prospects of that once lively little village. He says the mining trade has almost left the Colum bia, and the Dalles will hereafter have to depend upon its own natural resources for prosperity. Real estate has gone down fifty per cent in the last three years, and half the houses on the principal streets are tcnantless. The U. S. 31 int., build ing at Dalles, is fast approaching com pletion, the basement walls being comple ted and the brick work progressing. The Albany brick machine, (the Excelsior) is spoken of as doing good work. The fruit prospects are spoken of as excellent, and a large crop is expected. A young German had "struck" an oil spring near town, which was expected to yield large ly when the "warm spell" set in.

THE simplicity and practicability of this new Plow commends it favorably to the special nonce of every larmer. it possesses a decided superiority over all other plows now in nse. . The wheels are four feet in diameter, and run on the nnplowad land. Its entire construction is in no way complicated. The plow is managed in every manner with ease, and requires only two levers to be used in making any alteration. Tbe supe riority of the "Gay" Plow will be clearly shown by the following certificate : We, tbe undersigned, citizens of Linn county, Oregon, having purchased i and used upon our farms tbe "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that the same has given us entire satisfaction. Its facility for adju'tiug to suit tbe depth of furrow without moving from the seat, is simple and easy. We like the plow for its draught, because the same is hirniKrht to hfeAr direetlv unnn tha nlnw.hn.tn in. stead of the carriage ; also, cecause it is strong and durable, all excent the wood-work bein con structed of wrougnt iron no ca-tings are used.
