attend, in the highest manner. The hall

crowded, and the entertainment through

and enthusiasm. Tho music, instrument

and was a principal feature in the even

About tlARVt of Way.
One of the feTyatlewn acting as agent
for Ben. Holladayl Securing the right
of way for the Qfeg'jn Central Railroad
(East Side); infarrtr&aa that many of the
owners of land'otf is line of the road
are demanding,!).1 souij cases, exhorbitant
damages of the (jompjmy for the right of
way. Thisii wroB?a tfjey thus delay the
construction of theroml Without benefitting
tWmselves one . whi We presume, in
nihe cases outfof ien tli increase in the
value of property ' ot JLhe line of road
will be considered W)r than an equiva
lent for the amount of Jaod appropriated
by the Company-;! Ia-.V reeent case of
this kind, the jary v'jpnd,. j.upon a
thorough exanvuatiohthat the i; party
claiming-dEr itMrWj,ad.i rSceived
more berjcht- irTiT'dariiago, and rendered
a verdict accordEg;Land along the
line of the road i q tlia jonnty, since the
faot of its nltima-'a' uiinijfletion has been
established, has " increased five dollars,
and in somcinaneeB more, per acre.
Our understanding fefth9 statute gov
erning the case is this : TI19 law gives
railroad corporation1 the right to enter
upon any land whieh may be necessary
for the use of the road. . If parties de
mand damages, the corporation must
tender the fair valua ofthe land so taken
(without tho contemplated railroad im
provement), when. it ean proceed with
the construction, of the road, no matter
whether such tender on the part of the
corporation is aceepted'pr not. Railroad
improvements are Icoosidered, and right
ly, too, as promoters of the wealth and
importance of a couinmnity, and unless
parties can prove 'positive loss by the lo
cation of such an eriterpiise, a jury can
not, under the. statate, find for them.
Our laws wcie. framed especially to en
courage and protect all enterprises of
this kind. Oregon has long suffered for the
want of this kind of transportation, and it ill
becomes us as a people, now that tae enter
prise is inaugurated,, after so mi
and perseverance, on the part of the few,
to throw any hindrance, however slight,
in the way of its early and rapid con
struction. We hor0v that all will take a
second -sober thought before taking any
action that looks to a retarding of this
great work. Instead of retarding, let us
aid tho entc'prwe h,c;r, that we may
sooner experience tLc TcVivifying effects
sure to follow upon ilie, completion of
our railroad throughout, our entire bor
ders. We' expect to ! give this subject
mere attention when opportunity offers.
Valuable Suggftions for Ore
gon. We copy the following froni Car
ter's San Francisco Real Estate Circular
for January, aud commend it to the at
tention of our merchants, farmers, man
ufacturers, and others- We may also ask
why Oregon cannot, or, more properly,
does not, manufacture her own butter,
soap, caudles, hides. boots and shoes, etc.?
Read and think over iti Here it is :
During the year 1869 we paid the
nice little sum of $G,-JS9,096 for freight
alune, on Eooda imported here, mostly
fronthe East. This little item speaks
I loudly against our want df enterprise, for
we should, in most, instances, be manu
facturing the very articles wc arc import
ing. Why can't we make soap and can
dles as well aud as cheaply as they do in
the East ? Why is Eastern butter pre
ferred to Cal'fornia butter ? Why do
we export hides to have them reitcported
in the shape, of bootsaod shoes, instead
of manufacturing the article of wearing
ourselves? These are -questions which
we would respectfully Bubmit to the
croakers, who, while;: they are crying
out about tho dull times in tho State,
have never invested a single dollar to ad-
Sho hung the cage at. the window ;
"If he goes by," she said,
"He will hear my robin singing ;
And when he lifts his head
I shall be sitting here to sew,
And ho will bow to me, I know."
The robin sang a love-sweet song,
- The young man raised his head ; -Tbe
maiden turned away and blushed;
"I am a fool," she said,
And went on broidering in silk
A pink-eyed rabbit, white as milk.
The young man loitered slowly
By tbe house three times that day j
She took her bird from tho window ;
"He need not look this way."
She sat at her piano long.
And sighed, aud played a death-sad song,
Bat when the day was done, she said,
'I wish that he would come I
Remember, Mary, if he calls :
To-night I'm not ut home."
So when he rang, she went the elf -
he.went and let him in h.rself.
They sang fall long together ' . .
Their songs love sweet, de&ai saJJ - - -The
robin woke from bis slumber,
And sang ont clear and glad.
" Now go," she coldly said, " 'tis late,"
Aud followed him to latch tho gate... ,i
He took tho rosebud from her hair,
While " you shall not t" she said;
He closed her hand wilhin his own,
And while her tongue forbade,
Her will was darkened in the eclipse -
Of binding love upon her lips.

A Dog Sacrifices his Life for a
Drunken Master. The Milwaukee
Wigronsiii says : A gentleman living at
Wauwatoso related to us to-day tho fol
lowing incident, for the truth ofwhich
he vouches : One day' last week a man
went to a saloon,' as was his daily cus
tom, to drink, and meeting boon com
panions remained with them till late at
night, when he started to go home.
Overcome by the liquor ho had drank,
the man laid down on the railroad track
and went to sleep. A faithful dog, who
had followed the man, stood and watched
ovr him, until tie whistle of a locomo
tive in the distance showed that a freight
train Was : approaching. The dog, fully
aware of the imminent danger to his
master, tried to arouse the drunken man,
and tore his. clothes badly in the attempt,
unable to awake -the sleeper, the dog
took the man by the shoulder and fairly
dragged him from the track jus as the
train came on. The man was saved, but
the poor dog, who had so faithfully pro
tected the master he loved, was struck
by tho cow-catcher and smashed to
pieces. When the man recovered his
senses, it was found that his flesh was
bitten in several places by the strong ef
forts of tho dog to save his life. The
man the next day gathered up the pieces
of the faithful animal and buricd'them.
He was so fully impressed by the re
markably narrow escape from death that
he has resolved not to get drunk again.

Louisville, (wich is in the
State uv Kentucky)', Feb. 9, 1870.
I don't know reely there's any more
yoose in livio on this earth. The Fif
teenth An.cndmeut is adoptid, and a
nigger Senator will take a seat in tho
Sonit wunst okkepied by that niarter,
Jefison. Davis. It's about time for uie
to get hentz I hev no desire to rcmane.
I wood like to stay long enough to con
soom the' contents uv a red-beaded barrel
in the back room uv my blessid grosery
in Noo York, into wich I hain't, ez yet,
put no water, and probably I will. I
think shel go home, shut myself up in
that back room, drink that partikeler
barrel dry, and fall dead across it. Like
Sardanapulus, my kingdom being gone,
1 came to Kentucky to aid by my
counsel the Dimocrisv uv that State, in
tbe present crisis. i. lie nigger Kevel
hcz a seat in the Senit of tbe Yoonited
States, and of course no Kentucky Dim
ocrat kin so degrade hisself ez to set in
that body beside him I expectid, uv
course, thatGarrett, Davis and MoCreery,
would immejitly resine, and ez no native
born Kentucky Dimocrat wood tuke the
place, and ez Kentucky could not afford
to be represented by a Ablishnist, it oc
curred to me that possibly there mite be
a chance for me. I am a Northern Dim
ocrat by birth, and Northern Dimocrats
hev alluz done eich work for the South
erners ez the Southerners countid too
dirty for cm'. The only thing wich cood
stand in the way wuz tbe fact that 1 left
Kentucky a year ago, and am now a
citizen uv Noo York. But what uvthat?
I kin swear I am a citizen uv Kentucky
I hev been in Noo York politics cnurf
to swear anything.
At all events 1 went to my old State,
and got together a caucus uv the Dimo
crutic members, tiv the Legislacher to
consider this thing.
The Chairman of the caucus remarks
that the signs uv the times indikated
trouble. Kentucky, ef that nigger wuz
admitted to the Senit, wuz virchually
disfranchised, for uv course Davis and
McCreery cood not reniane in their seats
beside him. No Kentucky gentleman
wood disgrace-his proud State by practi
cally takin to his buzzum a male member
of an inferior race uv acknollidgin his
equality and workin quietly with him.
Never! Sooner than this he wood be
willin to see the States further South in
nogerato anoiher struggle for their rites,
in tbeevent uv wicli,tioo to the'yoonyuu
e. before, Kentucky wood preserve a
strct and dignified nootrality by sellin
t horses and provew'r iiuprliul!y ixy bulb
armies, ue. nopeu tne gentlemen wood
express their views freely.
A gentleman iroin the eastern part uv
the State offered the following preamble
aud rcsolushen :
Waveas. Ths Senit of the Yoonited
States is about to admit to a seet in that
body a nigger ; and :
areas, No Kentucky Dimocrat wood
degrade liiself by sittin beside a nigger:
Resolved, That LTon. Garrett Davis be
instructed to resioe to-wunst.
The resolushens passed to-wunst, with
out a dissentin voice, and were sent by
telegraph to the Senators at Washington,
after wich I begged permiesion to offer a
remark. I said that uv course no Ken-
tuckian cood be found to take them pla
ced made vacant by the two eminent men
who wuz about to leave the Senit, but
nevertheless Kentucky coodent afford to,
go unrepresentid. Is there no northern
man uv Kentucky principles wbo will
rush to fhe front at this crisis ?
Twenty gentlemen sprang to their feet.
The one who got the eye uv the Chair

The Chairman doubted whether there
wuz a Kentuckiin who had so little re-
speck, for hisself. Ef a Kentuckian wuz
selectid it shood be from the membership
uv the Legislacher. He felt that it wuz
the duty of some two uv them to sacri
fice theirselves on tho altar of their State.
It wood bo a bitter degradation for a man
filled with the memories uv the past, to
choke down natural pride, and take a sect
with a nigger, but some one must do it.

Tbe First Panel of Lady Juror. v
A Laramie City (Wyoming) date of
the 7th inst. gives the following account'
of the first assembling of a jury com
posed in part of women : x
The Judiciary of Wyoming sustains- ,
the right of women to serve as Grand '
Jurors. All ladies drawn as Grand Ju
rors were present at eleven A. M. to-day.
A motion to quash the panel was nit
sustained. At 11:55 A. M. the first
Lpanel of lady Grand Jurors in the world
was sworn. None asked to be excused.
A lady bailiff was appointed for the
Grand Jurors. Following is the address
by Chief Justice Howe :
Ladies and Gentlemen of the
Grand Jury: It is an innovation and ;
a great novelty to seo, as we do to-day,
ladies summoned to serve as jurors. The
extension of political rights and the
franchise to women is a subject that is
agitating the whole country. I have
never taken an active part in these dis
cussions, but have long seen that woman
was a victim to the vices, crimes, sod
immoralities of man, with no power to
protect and defend herself from these
evils. I have long felt that such powers,
of protection should be conferred upon
woman, and it has fallen to our lot her

to test the question. The eyes of the
whole world are to day fixed upon this
jury of Albany county. There is not
the slightest impropriety ia any lady oc
cupying this position, and I wish to as
sure you that the fullest protection of
the court shall be accorded to yon. It
would be a. most shameful scandal that
in. oac trmplea of . justice . and Jn v ou?
courts of law, anything should be per
mitted which the most sensitive lady may '
not with propriety hear and : witness
and here let me add, that it will be a
sorry day for any man who shall so far
forget the courtesy due and paid by T
ery American gentleman to every Amer
ican lady, as to even by a word or act
endeavor to deter you from the excrcita
of these rights with which the law ha ,
invested you. I will conclude with tl.av
.vifL. titTa ,.:,.. a.. ...... A
decide for yourselves, no man has sny
right to interfere. - It seems to me to be'
eminently proper for women to sit upon"
grand juries, which will give them the
best possible opportunities to aid i 1 sup
pressing tho dens of infamy which cone
tho county. I shall be glad of your ts
siptancc in the accomplishment of this
object. I do not make this remark from:
any distrust of the gentlemen of Albany
county ; on the contrary, I am exceed- .
ingly well pleased and gratified with the
indications of intelligence, lave of lav',
and good order, and the gentlemanly de
portment which is so manifested. 1 will
now listen to any reasons which soy juror
may make for being excused. ' ' A "''
