Fhightfullly Injured.- From the Oregontan we learn that Bob Ladd was frightfully injured, on Friday, Jan. 28th, by having his left hand and arm caught between the belt and pulley driving the large grindstone in Rogers & Stinson 8 mill at Portland. Hia body-waff whirled around the shaft several times, tearing hia clothes and bruising him fearfully. Dr. Chapman amputated the arm, and had hopes of the recovery of his patient. The Irish and Prince Arthur. The Irish of New York, being indignant that a ball was to be given in honor of Prince Arthur, secret Fenian meetings were held, where it was proposed to cap ture and hold him as hostage for the Fe nians now in prison in England.

Your "regular correspondent" has been rather ir-rcgvlar for Heveral weeks, because nothing of importance outside of the usual occurrences has transpired. Yet we are moving -onnot standing still, or retrograding. , I noticed, a few days ago, a new build ig for a blacksmith ahop was being erected ; and, on inquiry, learned that Mr. Vanvacter, whtf formerly resided here, intends again to become a citizen of our village, and establish himself in his old trade of hammertoe iron. He left here last Spring, and "'has tried several places since that tiime, and has found thaf he can enjoy himself better here than elsewhere. He has bought prorn erty, and intends to become a permanent resident. We extend to him a most hearty welcome. Mr. Philip Baltimore, an old citizen of Linn, has also purchased property here, and, we suppose, will soon become a permanent citizen of our village. Thus you see, Jir. jaitor, tnat our village is appreciated most by those who know it best. I spoke in my last communication about the future prospects of Lebanon ; and, as some of your readers may wish to know what its advantages are, I will enumerate some of them. ITS LOCATION. It is located in the center of Linn county the best agricultural county in the State and is surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. The location is also a most healthful one. The Soda Springs, which have become quite pop ular as a place of resort, are but four miles from here. THS SANTIAM ACADEMY Is located here. This institution was chartered in 1854, and a regular course of study selected in 1860. Though but two students have completed the entire course and yet received diplomas, yet many of our best citizens and most in fluential men have here completed their educations, and they look, upon this in stitution as their alma mater. Some of these are engaged in teaching, some are filling important offices in this county, and other counties ; some are successfully practicing the different professions, and some are engaged in the Christian min istry. As this institution has an endow ment fund of about 82,000 the rates of tuition are lower than in any other school of high grade in the State of Oregon. With its low rates of tuition, cheap board, complete philosophical and chem ical apparatus, maps,' charts, etc., it pre sents rare facilities to students lor ac- quiifipg an education. ' The school never was more prosperous tban it is now. The morals of the community are greatly in favor of this place. Religious services are held here every Sunday, and they arc well attended. The Sabbath was not observed more strictly by the Pilgrim Fathers than it is by this com munity. Now, sir, putting all these things to gether, do you not think our future pros perity certain ? , On the 5th inst., Dr. Odell, with the assistance of the county clerk of Ben ton, and President W. H. Finley, enter ed into nartnerstuD for life with Miss Mary Biddie, a highly accomplished and very estimable young lady ot coivauis, On the return of : the happy partners to Lebanon they were serenaded by the " Lebanon Ban ga way Band."
