Arrangements are being made prepar atory to the erection of a Baptist church, an accommodation much needed at : this place. A subscription has been in circulation for the purpose of raising funds to erect a Methodist church, but with what suc cess we are not informed. Mr. Hausman, a wagon maker of this place, showed us a machine for boring and morticing wagon hubs, which he had got up for his own use, which is not only complete in all its arrangements, but per forms its work to rare perfection. That portion by which the hub is adjusted so as to give the proper slope to the mortice is 'certainly an ingenious arrangement, it takes but a moment to change the augur for the chisel. We saw a notice posted to-day, in forming the public that a contract would be let to erect the large school house on Brush creek. About two years ago the school house in that district was adjudg ed not sufficient ; a new and larger one was built and finished up per contract. Now the new building is to be remod eled, arranged and seated according to the modern and improved style. Thus some communities more whether the world does or not. ' We noticed an article in the last week's Register in regard to McCord & Co., soap and lard oil establishment, in Albany. This suggests to us a notice of the establishment of Etlis & Co., of thi3 place, who purchase the raw hides, make the wood work of the saddle tree, cover it, tan the leather and finish it up in the most substantial and improved style. Also, carry on a general harness and saddle busiuess, and dispose of articles in that line to the farmers of this section on the most reasonable terms. Beat that in the State, if you can. We are glad to learn that your city has raised sufficient money to secure the railroad by January next. Nothing is more needed by the citizens of Linn county than a cheap and safe means of transportation for their surplus agricul tural products. While this is being done it is all important that we look to our homo manufactures, the country whose laborers, mechanics and operatives are sufficiently numerous to. consume its ag ricultural products, is the country that is rich and independent. That community wheh taxes itself continually to trans port raw material and import manufac tured articles, will always labor to a great disadvantage, and,, to use a homely ex pression, will be poor and hard run. Not a bushel of wheat, a pound of wool, or raw hide ought to leave the State with out being manufactured. It is a Com mon thing for men to decry home-made articles of consumption as being inferior to those manufactured or produced in other portions of the country. Hence, it is not very uncommon to see racer. leather, and other articles, shipped to California, and then shipped back for consumption here. In all such cases the producer or manufacturer is the loser. Such leaks on the industy of the country ought to be stopped, if we would be prosperous and independent. Still at Work. The ears are . still running on Ben. Holladay's road, carry ing ties, rails, etc., to the end of the track, to be used as soon as spring opens in continuing the road towards Salem. The mills aru running with a full force, employed sawing ties, and at various points between the present terminus of the road and Salem, parties are engaged in getting out timbers with which to con struct the various bridges to be erected next season. Work will be so far ad vanced by the opening of spring, that the laying of the track to Salem will be a matter of but a , few weeks. Every thing indicates the intention of Holladay to put the road through at a rapid rate the coming season, and if the cars are not running to Albany before January next, we shall miss our guess. A French inventor has taken out That Surprise. - Editor Register Thinking ' it might be somewhat interesting to some of ths friends of the Albany College who have not the opportunity of visiting the institution, to hear something through the columns of your worthy paper, we propose, with your consent,- to give your readers a little .account of onr visit to the performance of the " Sigma Phi " debating club, conducted by tbe young men of tbe college. It was on Thurs day evening, of the 13th inst, that we had the pleasure of visiting this young society. The question under considera tion was ; RetoUed, That spiritualism Is an injury to mankind. ' ' - Mr. Long,- as the champion' of the af firmative, opened the discourse with some forcible arguments, showing the false ness and absurdity of spiritualism; and, being an imposture, consequently an in jury to mankind. Mr. Hannon, in behalf of the negative, responded with some hair-splitting logic, showing tbe sophistry of his opponent's arguments, and asserting, on the other hand, that spiritualism is a living, vital principle, actuating the masses to nobler aspirations by the gentle woings of gen ial spirits from the better world. The speaker had but closed, when lo ! voices were heard from without ! spirits ! spirits ! in whispered tones went ardund the room, and for a moment the enthusi asm of the discussion was lost in con fusion. The Sergeant-at-Arms secured the door, and the gavel of the President soon commanded order: but the spirits, aye, the spirits, were there ; but not the ghosts and phantoms of the mystic clime, but fairy forms, with happy voices, laughing eyes and smiling faces. In short, Mr. Editor, the young ladies, under the paternal guidance of Professor Irvine, whose benign countenance was in a perfect ebullition of good humor, were out on a surprise. It is, perhaps, need less to state that the fair visitors were received with looks of welcome more than words can express. The society immediately adjourned to a more com mo dious appartment for the better enter tainment of the fair ones. Order again reinstated, the discussion was resumed and many were the streams of eloquenco poured forth from youthful bosoms, until the question seemed fairly ex hausted, and the President, who had fairly weighed the arguments as deliver ed, found the preponderence in favor of the athrmative. The regular business of the society completed, Prof. Irvine was called upon add offered some very interesting re marks. After which a vote of thanks was tendered the ladies for the favor of their visit, and there being no further business the society adjourned. . When Prof. Irvine, on behalf of the young ladies, invited the gentlemen to partake of refreshments prepared in an adjoin ing room. Thinking wo were richly repaid by the intellectual feast, and being somewhat of a stranger, wp were just taking the subject of home into conside ration, when wo were unexpectedly waited upon by one of the fair maidens and invited to share the hospitality of the evening. We repaired to the ban queting hall a recitation room. Tables were improvised from the desks, that seemed to almost groan beneath their burden of good things. There was pop corn, for those desiring light food, " sweetcakes," so much admired by school boys, and delicious cake, such as only Albany ladies can make; candies and nuts for dainty epicures, and big red apples, only equalled by the bloom ing cheeks of the maides who brought them. The good things were relished as only students know how to appreciate. The good Professor was relieved of all fatherly care at going-home time. Ev erything passed off pleasantly, and the Su8pri.se will ever long be held in grate ful remembrance. Spectator. STATE ITEMS. The Blade says Hon. S. C.

On the 10th inst., as the Cable informs us, Prince Pierre Napoleon Bonaparte, cousin of the Emperor, shot and killed Victor Noire ; he also wounded Ulrich de Fourville The ' Minister of Justice ordered the ar rest of the Prince, but he had already surrendered to the Commissioner of Po lice. His version only is allowed to be published. It is in substance that Noire slapped his face, whereupon be shot him dead. That Fourville then took refuge behind a chair and attempted to shoot, and in that position the prince shot htm The city is greatly excited. The trial will be held before the Corps Legislatif, sitting as a high court ot justice. a Henri Rochefort, in the Marscllaise, denounced the act in the bitterest lan guage. The entire issue was seized Next day the paper was worse, and the office has been taken charge ot by the police. ' In the Corps Legislatif it was pro posed to render the Imperial family amenable to law. Rochefort said the people could judge the murderer, and even though he was cousin to the Em peror, he must not go unpunished. OH ver, in reply, said he should have justice The Procurer Imperial demanded the ar rest of Rochefort for an outrage against the Emperor in exciting violence. Re ferred to a committee to report.

A corres pondent of the San Francisco Figaro writes the following: A rare old Just ice who lives " Away down East in the State of Maine, Where the Winter's crop of snow is as high As the Summer's crop of grain," has established a most " delicious prece dent," whereby wrangling couples may slip the irksome noose ot my Lord Hy men. Some years ago ho " wedlocked a couple last, who in time got tired of jars overflowing with matrimonial acri mony. Having no money to lool away in obtaining a divorce, they returned, like bad pennies, to the issuing Justice and besought him to cancel the bond. He reflected, scratched his poll, and said there was no way to do but to go to Court " but hold," he added, " 1 Have it I You promised to live together until death do you part. Just follow me into the back yard." They followed. The Justice prospected for a cat, and soon caught one. Uiving John noid or tne feliue's tail, and Jane hold of the bead, he seized a sharp axe and directed them to "pull apart." They pulled; "'till death do you part," exclaimed the Justice, and down came the axe, sever ing poor Tommy in the middle, and the divorce was accomplished. "Cats are sacred to wrangling, couples evermore! stroke not their fur the wrong way. Assassinated. The following tele gram is dated Louisville, Ky., January 14th: A few nights ago at Lighten, Alabama, a band of masked men rode to the door and called out Granville Pillow and Robert Pillow, nephews of General Pillow, and shot and killed both. The assassins escaped, leaving no trace. . A boy in San Francisco recently eat down on a leaky can of nitro glycerine, contrary to his mother's express orders.
