Vermont Election. Telegrams
from Vermont to the 7th instant, speak
of the late political canvass in that State
as the greatest known for many- years.
The returns from thirty-three towns,
casting about one-fourth of the vote ol
the State, give Washburne, Republican,
16,691 votes; Heaton, Democrat, 2,162,
showing a reduction in the Republican
vote of thirty-three per cent, and nearly
thirty-seven per cent, on the Democratic

. Great Loss of Life. On the morn
ing of the 6th, a fire broke out in the
flue at the bottom of a shaft in the Avon
dale coal mine, at Plymouth, Pennsyl
vania. Not less than 138 nor more than
250 men and boys, including the super
intendent, were at work in the mine,
none of whom, at latest dates, had been
rescued, the gas being so strong that no
attempt made to reach the mine had
been successful. It is feared that al
have perished. The excitement is in
tense thousands upon thousands of peo
ple having congregated in the vicinity of
the mines, doing all in their power to
rescue the poor fellows incarcerated in
them. At last accounts (8th inst.), ef
forts to flood the mine and extinguish
the fire were being made.
At Salem, on the evening of the 8th,
Hon. Wm. H. Seward delivered an ad
dress to an audience of two thousand
persons. The address is reported in full
by the Unionist. We have room only
for the closing paragraph :
Citizens of Oregon, it is long since we

'Railroad. Nearly a full Board of
tho Directors of the East Side road were
in session at Slem on Tuesday, as we
learn lrom the. Unionist. They were
called together 'to transact important
matters looking to the prosecution of the
road. The arrival of ja ship load of iron
at San Francisco for- Holladay & Co.,
causes a general feeliug of satisfaction,
and puts to flight nil doubt as to the
completion by fall of the first section of
twenty miles of this road. Ben. Holla
day was also in Salem, and he declares
his intention of not only completing the
first twenty miles, but to push the road
on to Salem as fast as possible. Bully
Another Comet. The Delphi, Indi
ana, JonrmtJ, under the above heading,
gives the following startling information :
For ten years past astronomers have told
us that during tho months of July,
August and September, in this year, the
most wonderful comet the world has ever
known, would reappear. This comet is
on time. It is now to be seen with the
naked eye, any clear night, in the north
ern part of the heavens, between eleven
and twelve o'clock, and from that time
until the morning star rises. Astrono
mers assure us that this comet will ap
proach nearer the earth than any comet
ever did before, and that either the earth
or the comet will have to change its
course, or a collision is inevitable. This
comet is said to be many thousand times
larger than the earth. It is a solid
mass of fire, with a tail of fire that would
reach around the earth more than a
hundred times, and a collision with our
planet is not an event to be very earnest
. . . (
Low Fare. W. II. Martin, Esq., gen
eral agant of the International Emigrant
Aid Society, of Baltimore, Maryland,
now stopping in Portland, is the Demo

cisco will soon be reduced from $60 to

Arrived. A telegram from i San
Francisco to Ben. Holladay at Salem,
dated the 6th, states that the 2?oricay

Toad track ire n for .building ten miles of
the East Side road. The same telegram
says that two first-class locomotives have
been contracted for, to be sent overland
by the 10th of November. Two addi
tional locomotives are coming by sea.
Tight Shoes. The Salem Unionist
of the 7th has the subjoined :
Yesterday, Dr. Carpenter's daughter,
at her own selection, submitted to a sur
gical operation both severe and painful.
She had two ef her' toes, one from each
foot,- taken off at the joint where the
metatarsus and phalanges arc joined.
The deformity necessitating this opera
tion was caused by wearing a pair of
tight shoes about four years ago. About
a year since the tendons that caused the
toes to contract were severed, and splints
applied to straighten them, but without
accomplishing the object. The Dr. re
grets very much that the operation had
to be performed, and he desires the case
reported as a warning to parents. Per
sons while young at least should wear
shoes large enough i to allow the feet to
grow along with the other parts of the
Scarcity of Water. Considerable
excitement has been created in New

IT M. MORRIS AND W. C. AVERY,
both old Oregonians, having beyond a
doubt tho largest ox in tho world, propose to the
people of Oregon to take this monster to the At
lantic States and exhibit him as an Oregon pro
duction. Before leaving the State, they wish
every man, woman and child in Oregon, to see
Mount Hood upon legs, and in order to give them
an opportunity to do so, they will exhibit him at
the approaching Linn County Fair, and, also, at
the State Fair, for the sum of 25 cents ; children
half price. Their object in doing this is to raise
means for transportation. All those who think
that it will have a tendency to wake up the peo
ple of the Eastern States to realize the fact that
there is such a place as Oregon on the Pacific
slope, and that not only large cattle, but every
thing else in advance of the rest of the world,
and all that is necessary is industry and economy
to realize a fortune in Oregon, in a few years, and
that it is Ihe best place to enjoy a fortune after it
has been accumulated. Business men make a
note of this, and remember that money makes the
ox go, and patronize us accordingly.
W. C. Avery will also have a supply of Mrs.
L. A. Stipp's Thoracic Balsam on hand, and for

'The Hon. Jno. E. Sanford, Insurance Commis
sioner of Massachusetts, in his Report for 1863,
speaking of Dividends in Life Insurance Compa
nies, says , " The sooner such -guarantees cease
to be made, and such expectations created, the
sooner Life Insurance will come to rest on its true
motive, and men insure their lives for security,
and not for dividends. The nest and the most
popular companies will then be those that prom
ise only equity, and render all that they promise,
and furnish the best security, with the most up
right and judicious management."
" By the Stock plan the full cash effect of th.
premium is immediately secured to the insured,
the Company taking all tho risk. By the Mu
tual plan, tho full value in insurance of the pre
mium paid, is not secured to the policy-holder,
who takes a portion of tho risk himself."
