generally conceded that the principal of
tbe school during tbe year just expired,
Mr. Thos. G. Taylor, is a thoroughly
competent gentleman, and has proved the
most successful teacher ever employed in
this district. We are glad to hear that

Waterloo Precinct Convention.-
We found the proceedings of the Water
loo Republican Precinct Convention on
our desk last week some hours after the
Register for the week had been mailed.
How tbey came, or who handed them in,
we are at present unable to answer. We
are sorry that we did not get them so
that wo could have published them last
week. As it is we will give the gist of
The Convention met at 2 o'clock P,
M-, and organized by the election of
Isaao B. Courtnay, Chairman, and John
A. Ambler, Secretary. Messrs. Sylvester
R. Clark and Joel Vail were elected del
egates to the County Convention. The
following-resolution was then offered, and,
after an eloquent speech from Rev.
Thomas S. Kendall, was unanimously
passed : . ..
Resolved, That tbe administration of
President Grant has fully met the antic
ipations of his friends who placed him
in the official position he now holds and
so justly honors.
A : Precinct Committee was elected,
Messrs. Chas. Williams. G. W. Klum
aud J. A. Ambler, being tbe gentlemen
chosen. V' i- T , ?: . ,
New Goods. We omitted to men
tion the faet, last week, that Messrs. R.
Cheadle & Co. bad received a fresh lot of
goods, and that the last ocean steamer
brought them still another lot. This
bouse receives goods by almost every
steamer, and, thus their stock never runs
down, but is constantly kept full and
complete. Their goods are , tho very
best, and their prices the most reasona
able, besides tbey are the most accommo
dating gentlemen in tbe trade.
for tbe offices ot Sheriff and County
Clerk. This resolution met with the
most violent opposition, and a large por
tion of the afternoon was taken up in
denouncing, on tbe one hand, and sup
porting on the other, this innovation of
the time-honored and cherished customs
of the Democratic party. Several amend
ments were offered and lost, but an
amendment or substitute offered by A
N. Arnold, and accepted bv Mr. Jones,
was at length passed, which provided
that the election should be by ballot, and
that each voter should write upon the
back of his ballot his choice for Sheriff
and Clerk. A large maiority of the
Democratic voters of the precinct were
in attendance and much feeling prevailed.
Following is the result of the balloting :
Of tbe two candidates for Sheriff,, Jos.
Nixon obtained 67, and BobJ Irvine,
present incumbent, 164 votes majoritj
for Irvine, 97. For County Clerk
Fred. Hill 80, and John Hackleman 91
majority for Hackleman, H. Richard
Powers and Isaac Hayes were nominated
as J ustices of the Peace for Albany pre-
c'net, and Jas. Sperry and Geo. Master
son as Constables. The delegates elect
to the County Convention are : E. Knox,
J. McUee, John Davis, O'ney If rye, V
M. Cook, L. Cox, A. W. Stanard, A
f arker, J. Liayton, C. Westlake.

The Countrt for Poor Men. Ore
gon is the poor man's paradise. Her soil
is the richest in the world, producing
fabulous crops with little labor. Her
timber is unequalled, and as a stock rais
ing country she cannot be approached
Until very lately Oregon has labored un
der the disadvantage of facilities for
transportation, except in the immediate
vicinity of her navigable streams. The
railroad now in course of construction on
the east side of the Willamette, and the
contemplated road on the west side, will
soon place all points of the State in close
communion, affording facilities for the
rapid transportation -of produce, which
will accelerate ail branches of industry,
bring an increase of pjpulation, and soon
double and treble the price of real estate.
At present real estate is offered at figures
and on terms at which a poor man can buy
and build up a comfortable home. The time
to secure a home is the present. This
golden opportunity is rapidly vanishing,
and it will soon be too late to take ad
vantage of it. But we started out to re
late a cord wood story, just related to us
by a gentleman of veracity, that illus
trates the cheapness and ease with which
a poor man may become possessed of
rich lands in this neighborhood. A gen
tleman living in this city sold a tract of
thirty-six acres, lying a mile or two from
this city, for seventy-five cords of wood,
to be delivered. One fir tree on the land
made thirty-four cords, or nearly half
the total amount to be paid for the land.
After cutting the 75 eords, it is esti
mated that there is left tinibef standing
for over 500 cords of wood, besides 100,
000 feet of lumber. Thus, after paying
for the land, the owner has left $450
worth of wood and lumber, and 36 acres
of rich land, wbicb, in a few years, will
command a good price. And there are
many such chances for poor men in Linn
county, who have the will and energy, to
hew out for tbemslves and families a
good home, even if they have not one
dollar when they arrive here. A man
possessed of ability and industry will
have no trouble, with proper manage
ment, in acquiring a competence in Ore
gon ia a very brief space. Oregon needs
muscle and energy to develop her vast
resources, and men of this stamp will
meet a cordial welcome on their arrival
The New Army Bill. The new
army bill now under consideration re
duces the army to 20,000. It abolishes
the offices of General and Lieut. General,
when vacated by tbe present incumbents,
and reduces the number of Major Gen
erals to three, and Brigadier Generals to
six, when the present incumbents vacate.
In reducing the army, the President is
authorized to discharge any officer apply
ing for such discharge before September.
Officers having served ten years are to
receive two years extra pay and allow
ance ; those having served five, and less
than ten years, are to receive one and a
half year's , pay, and those who have
served less than five years, one year's
pay. it autnorizes mm to retire, on tneir
application, any officer who may have
served thirty years, and allows tbe re
tired list to be increased to three hun
dred. The enlisted men, which now
number 32,000, it is expected will be re
duced to 25,000 by the first of Septem
ber, reducing tbe expenses of tbe army
several millions. Ihe House bill, as
partiajly adopted, it is believed, increased
instead of lessened the expense of the
army, by several thousand dollars.
For the Register.

How from tbe innermost depths of
memory well up the deepest feelings of
my soul as I reflected upon tbe vastness
of this great, illimitable old ocean, whose
snow-capped billows roll and radiate in
the beautiful sunshine, just as tbey have
ever done in days like this since first tbe
morning stars sang together and all tbe
sons of God shouted for joy.
Off in the east rises the dark-browed
coast, shutting off the surging billows
from the quiet dales in the dim distance
where are nestled our quiet homes, and
where live our darlings and Jur all of
earth. Look to theorth-, abd south,
and west. Nothing ia visible but tbe
vast waste of dark bluo and white-capped
waters, now lashed into fury by the
track of our steamer, and now subsiding
into placid ripples, upon which flocks of
Eea-gulls light and ride with all the
grace of fairies. But I did not imagine
I should write like this when I began to
scribble ; and I must arouse myself from
tbe reverie to tell you something of our
I left home on tbe 8th inst., and, go
ing aboard the Reliance, found myself
for the first time in my existence as a
traveler, without the company of a single
acquaintance, except the captain. Noth
ing of interest transpired until we reached
Canemab. The steamer was loaded with
grain to the water's edge, and a strong
breeze was blowing up stream, there
fore the captain refused to land me
at Canemah, and I bad the doubtful
pleasure of walking back from the Basin
and lugging a basket over tbe old mule
track, to my sister's residence, ordinarily
a walk of a mile, but in my exhausted
physical condition an interminable dis
tance. I felt like doing a little scolding
on my own account ; but concluded to
ask you to get tbe Mercury after the P.
T. Company, and say no more about it
myself. How convenient to always have
somebody ready to fight one's battles !
Took dinner at the Cliff House a
very good house by the way. Itn old
proprietor succumbed to circumstances
and whisky some time since, and Mr.
Wm. Barlow and wife now run the " in-

stitution. ' Thirty-two imported voters
were quartered there recently by one of
the factory managers, who agreed to give
them work and board until after election
tbey, of course, agreeing to go "Dem
ocratic straight." Their employers tried
it a week, and then notified the landlord
that he could not longer remain responsi
ble for their board. Some person bad
told the poor man that bis voters were
" selling" him, and he settled the bills,
complaining that the rascals bad already
cost him $250. Said " rascals " left tbe
hotel and went to work on tbe railroad.

We are having a : pleasant trip. Of
course we were delightfully sea sick on
the first day after reaching the bar; bat
all are better now, and having, much to
the chagrin of our important darkey,
secured the smoking room on deck as a
eabin for both , ladies and gentlemen,
(said darkey having pompously asserted
that tbe ladies have no business here),
wo are warm and comfortable, social, and
no longer solitary. One ia astonished at
the meager accommodations which are of
fereded at $12 per day on this North
Pacific line ; no fire in the saloon, state
rooms smaller than closets, insolent wait
ers everywhere. But we are rapidly
approaching the bar. Can already see
the outlines of tbe famous Golden Gate.

at bis good fortune, for the lady is spoken
of as beinsf beautiful, accomplished and
amiable. And Mark bas prospered finan
cially, for bis book yields him a band
some income, ard his lecturing receipt
should make any ordinary mortal happy.
It seems Mark s latner-in-law played
an elaborate practical joke on him on the
night of the wedding. . The bridegroom,
being busy with bis lectures, and not
finding a bouse for sale that suited his-
purse and taste, instructed Mr. Langdon's-
agent in Buffalo to secure him rooms and
board in some nice family, wbeie there
would be but a few other boarders ; end
though the commission was executed,
Mark could not learn the name of tbe
family or the street where they lived;
and he privately determined to caution
his father-in-law, as soon as admitted
to to the family, against continuing such
a stupid agent in the management of bis
business. Finally, a dozen particular
friends escorted the bridal party from
Elmira to Buffalo, in a palace car, end
on arriving proposed to call on tbe newly
married pair in the morning. By some
more stupidity on the part of the agent,
tho bride and groom were tbe last t

cated matrimonial relations, occurring at

outrageous disregard of the marriage ob

shown by a husband and father to tha
wife of his bosom and the mother of bis
children, bas bad a fitting termination'

her new "affinity" to tbe residence of
clergyman in the village above mentioned,
and was then and there united ia matri

but remained in the family as a boarder.

become tbe husband of his employers

said, to get control of some property tsj
possession of his so-called wife, be delib
