Death of a Herculean Old Man.
Isaac Eaton, aged 95 years, died on
'Christmas, at his residence near South
Send, Indiana. He was a soldier of the
war of 1812, and was at Washington
when that city was captured by the Brit
ish. In his younger days Mr. Eaton was
a man of great strength. The South
Bend Register, in speaking of this char
acteristic of his, says :
In the war of 1812 Eaton served with
the Virginia militia, under tho command
of General Mason, a Virginian, born in
the same county with Eaton, about twelve
years his junior, and the most popular
man in the army. It is very probable
.that military discipline was very lax in
those times, and one day, at a general re
view, Mason rode up and down the lines,
proclaiming that he had a man in his
command who could whip anything in
the whole army. This challenge, several
times repeated, was at length respond
.ed to; by a perfect giant of a fellow
from a Pennsylvania regiment, who
came. stalking down the lines, and
asked General Mason to bring out his
man. The General ordered Eaton out of
the ranks. He was eyed by the Penn
Bjlvaaian with about as much scorn as
Goliath was supposed to have looked up
on David.' Word was given to begin the
battle, and there, before the whole Amer
ican, army, formed in a holL w square,
the two men stripped to the waist and
began the combat j but, in less time than
it takes to tell it, Eaton lifted his hercu
lean opponent from the ground, and,
twirling him over with apparently as
much ease as a dandy would a cane, held
him np before the whole army in this in
verted position, until the giant Pennsyl
vaman begged for quarter. At another
time, in, Kentucky, Eaton was forced to
accept a challenge to fight, and on the
first encounter threw his opponent to the
' ground with such force as to break nearly
au ma nos.

Oregon, the Poor Man's Country.
The follow mz remarks, under the
above caption, are from that spicy litjtfe'
journal, the San Francisco Figaro ; 1
Since the scarcity of work and high
rents must unavoidably compel thousands
to leave the city, - the serious question
arises, Where are they to go ? The Bul
letin advises them to "go to the country,"
but to what quarter? Where can - they
find lands for settlement t What portion
of the productive domain is not already
occupied and improved, or in possession
of the grabbers, who demand more than
the poor settler can afford to pay ? Where
can he find rest and establish for himself
a home ?
We answer, to Oregon, to Washington
Territory, while there are vast areas of
unoccupied lands as fertile as the richest
valleys of California, and which are still
available to the settler at Government
prices. The tourist who ascends Mount
Hood ean overlook a territory of bewil
dering magnitude, of prodigious fertili
ty, capable of sustaining ten millions of
people, and still comparatively nninhab
ited. We will refer only to the valley of
the Willamette, 2U0 miles long, 50 miles
wide, seven-eighths of the whole expanse
susceptible of cultivation, and not more
than one-fifth has ever been disturbed by
the plow, ibis great valley, as fertile as
the lands bordering the Nile, is inhabited
by some 30,000 people: it would sustain
a million. And this is only one of the
great agricultural regions that invite the
settler to the North, and which in the
lifetime of some now living, will comprise
one of the richest agricultural communi
ties in the Union.
It is a short-sighted policy that would
over-crowd our own State with landless
inhabitants, who must exist merely as
tenants at the will of great land-owners,
while there is a vast empire of latent
wealth inviting them to a sister State.

aginative or unusually well-informed
advocate of a deflection of the Union
Pacific railroad southward to the thirty
second parallel, gives the Missouri i?e-
publican a most glowing account of the
wealth of the Mexican States of Du
rango and Chihuahua. He tells of t
citizen of the latter State who has a sil
ver mine of fabulous richness, for which
a California company have vainly offered
him two million dollars. I his wealthy
Cbihuahuan is called Don Cordero. He
lives in a style of extravagant magnifi
cence, but even to supply all the luxuries
which he has habituated himself to use,
he only works his mine a few days at odd
times. His suite of rooms in his mag
nincent establishment are described as
splendid beyond comparison. They are
said by this correspondent to be support
ed by columns of pure silver -one and a
half feet in diameter and twenty-five feet
in hight ! The same correspondent ac
credits Zombrano, Governor of Durango,
with a mine from which he has skimmed
fifty millions and paid eleven millions
royalty. These and other asserted facts
are related as reasons why the govern
ment should aid a southern l'acihc Kail
road. Would not it seem, if we accept
the correspondents statements as true
that Messrs. Cordero, Zombrano, and
their co-crcesus of Durango and Chihua
hua, are quite as able as is our Govern
ment to aid in the enterprise. Would it

Tharefore, girls, yu will see that after yu
git a man, yu hav got tew keep him,
even if- yu lose on him. Consequently,
if yu bay got enny cold vittlcs in the
house, try him on them, once and awhile,
during scouring seeson, and if he swat

' Crisis." Hudson, of the California
Legislature, recently introduced a resolu
tion commencing, " Whereas, a crisis has
arrived in the American Government,"
etc., which gives Prentice Mulford occa
sion, to tkji"s'':T i ? 'iJ"K 'J'.'-ift
I believe . the American Government
has ever since its formation been in a
state of crisis. It has never been out of
one in my recollection. I first became
conscious ot politicsn Harrison, " Tippe-canoe-and-Tyler-too
' era. That was a
time of crisis. Well, sir, the crisis has
run on and on like a protracted meeting
ever since. There was once in my lite j
time a cessation ot the crisis. It was
hile I was out of the live world on a i
whaling voyage. But then, you see, that
was on account ot my getting out of the
country, and consequently out of the cri
sis. When I arrived home it was going
on just the same as ever. Indeed, they
said then it was worse, for the secession 1
ebulition had commenced. Well, when
that was settled, I did think it was over.
But no. Mr. Hudson, of Sonoma coun
ty, has received it, and says that his
particular crisis is of a more " acrid and
alarming nature than any preceeding
it." The crisis is an American institu
tion. It is necessary, inherent, national,
invetable. I welcome it. I like it. It
is to me familiar, time-honored and over
grown with old associations. '
Eccentric Prayers. Some very ec
centric expressions were used in the
prayers of the clergymen of the last cen

clined to grumble when he prayed, "Give
us not evil to think Thee neglectful of
Thine own, for we are Thine own family,
and we have been but scurvily provided
for this long time. ,
The following is a specimen of a bap
tismal prayer : "Lord, bless and preserve
this young calt, that be may grow an ox,
to draw in Christ s plough."
We wonder whether the municipal
gallery was occupied when Mr. .brskine
prayed thus : "Oh, Lord, have mercy
upon all fools and idiots, and particularly
on the Magistrates ot Hdinburg.

lowing kitchen garden allegory : "Dibble 1
Thou the kail of Tby grace into our

Another ot something in the same
style was the following: "Unless our

The Hon. Jno. E. Sanford, Insurance Commis
sioner of Massachusetts, in his Report for 1868, j
I speaking of Dividends In Life Insurance Compa
nies, say , f 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 best and the most
popular companies will then be those that prom
ise only equity, and render all that they promise,
and furnish the beet security, with tbe most up
right and judicious management. : :
Farmers Can Ride and Plow,

Manufactured and sold for the very low price of
$65 and T.
THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends it favorably to the special
notice of every farmer. . It possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows now in use. Tbe
wbeels are four feet in diameter, and run en tbe
unplowed land. Its entire construction is ia no
way complicated. Tbe plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two lever
to be used in making any alteration. Tbe supe
riority ot the "Gay" Flow will be clearly shown
by the following certificate : ,
We, the undersigned, citisens of Linn eountv.
Oregon, having purchased and used upon our
farms the "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that tho
sa me has given us entire satisfaction. Its facility
for adjusting 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 i
brought to bear directly upon the plow-beam in
stead of the carriage ; also, because it it strong
aad durable, all except the wood-work beiogreon-
strueiea oi wrougbt won no castings are used.
The wheels runniag upon the solid land i aa ad- '
vantage over other gang-plows, in striking onT'
land and in plowing, not baring to make the nec
essary changes in tho machinery, and the seat ia
always level, sot thr wing the driver forward or
sideways as in other plows. Better work and
more of it can be accomplished by the use of thsa
flow tnan by band.
rWe take pleasure in recommending the "Oir"
Ptow to our brother farmers, as one having o
superior in Oregon.
