National Life Insurance Compa
ny. The National Life Insurance Com
pany of Washington, District of Columbia,
presents its claims to the public as a first
class insurance company, in the columns
of the Register this morning. Among
the several advantages offered by this
company m ty be mentioned tha low rates
of premiums"; giving larger insurance for
the same money ; it is a home company
iu every locality ; its policies are exempt
from attachment ; every poliey is non
forfeitable ; no extra rate is charged for
risks upon the lives of females. Policies
may be taken in this company that will
pay to the insured the full amount with
premiums added, so that the insurance
costs only the interest on the annual pay
ments. Read the advertisement of this
Company, and then call on John C
Mendenhall, Esq , the traveling agent
for Oregon and Washington Territory,
who will give you any further informa
tion you may require, and insure you on
the most reasonable terms.
Correctios. The display line in the
advertisement of the Santiam Academy
which read, " Commencement Course "
should have been set up, " Commercial
Course." The attention of out readers
is again drawn to the fact that, as a
teacher will devote his entire time to this
department of the Academy, as good a
commercial education can be obtained at
the Santiam Academy as at the Portland
institution, or anywhere else. And it is
all nonsense and the hight of folly to
send children, at more than thribble the
expense, to a distance, among entire
strangers, to obtain that which can be ob
tained at home, at a reasonable price, and
where the morals and the health of the
students can be looked after by the par
ents. Patronise your home colleges and
thus build institutions that will compare
fayorably with other similar schools in
any country. Home industries first,
should be the motto.
Cheap Watches. The New Collins
Watch Factory, of New York, are fur
nishing a splendid watch, ' manufactured
from the Gold ' Metal or Collins' Metal,
that for cheapness added to beauty and
usefulness, cannot be excelled by any
other company. Their $15 watches keep
good time, and look full as well as those
of other manufactories costing $125.

GREAT WOltJLD CIRCUS
AID EXHIBITION OF
New Store. Messrs. O. P. Tomp
kins & Co. have opened a stock of stoves,
tinware, &c, in the brick on the corner
of First and Washington streets. Mr.
Tompkins informs us that they will soon
be in receipt of fifteen thousand dollars
worth of the various articles that go to
furnish a complete outfit in their line,
and that they intend to sell at prices that
will defy competition. If you wish to
see neatness and taste displayed in the
arrangement of wares, or are in want of
anything from a stove to a tin dipper,
irive the new store a call.
Look Out. The overlaud stage from
Portland to-day will contain Vice Presi
dent Colfax and party, en: route for Cali
fornia. The party numbers eight per
sons, Messrs. Colfax, Bross, Bowles, and
five ladies. The California Stage Com
pany furnish an : extra," which will
reach this city about 10 o'clock to-day.
We suppose they will only stop here
long enough to change horses, as they
are to dine at Corvallis. The party will
remain at Eugene City over Sunday.
Law Office. Our friend J. Han-
non, Esq., has opened a law office on
First street, in the frame building for
merly occupied by Dr. Rice, where he
can be found during office hours, ready
to attend to those who wish his profes
sional services. Litigants can rest as
sured that whatever Mr. II. undertakes
will be thoroughly and successfully exe
cuted. With his energy and ability, we
predict a successful career in the practise
of law. See his card.
