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 nse. . The
wheels are four feet in diameter, and ran on the
nsplowed land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. i.ne plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two levers
to be used in making any alteration. The supe
riority of 4he "Gay" Plow wiU be clearljakoans
- We, the undersigned, citizens of Linn county.
Oregon, having purchased and used upon, our
farms the "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that the
same has given us entire satisfaction. Its facility
for adjusting to snit the depth of farrow without
moving from the seat, is simple and easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because the same is
brought to bear diraetly upon the plow-beam in
stead of the carriage ; also, because it is strong
ana auraoie, ail except ine wooo-worK oeing con
structed of wrought iron no cartings are used.
The wheels running upon the solid land is an ad
vantage over other gang-plows, in striking off
land and in ploying, not having to make the nec
essary changes m the machinery, and the seat is
always level, nt thr wing the driver forward or
sideways as in otner plows. .Better work and
more of it can he accomplished by the nse of this
Plow than by hand.
We take pleasure in recommending the "Gat'
Plow to our brother farmers, as one having no
superior in Oregon. . ;

Albany, September 19, 1868- y .
The Tribune's cable special ; says the
French reluctantly admit that they do not
occupy Saarbracken ; tbat tbey simply
hold position ; on the bights, on which
they, had erected batteries a week before
the attack. ; -
It U now well understood that Saar-
bruckea was never an ontpost, and so

13 not an important military position.
Dispatches from Frankfort say it is
generally believed the great battle will
be fought near Mayence. The number
of troops now massed between Mayence
and the front, is immense. Citizens of
Frankfort, who appeared hostile toward
the Prussians, now show lavish hospital
ity to the troops. If they do taot love
the Prussians, they at least deceive the
French. This war, instead j of taking
Frankfort from Prussia, has developed a
sincere attachment to the fatherland.
German officers believe the Prussians
will bring into the field a gun superior to
Napoleon's new artillery, and that France
will find her match.
Loudon, Aug. 5. Trustworthy re
ports of the battle of Saarbrucken say
the Prussians had only 6,000 men, while
the French had 30,000. j
Paris, Aug. 5. Gen. Don ay was

Brest, Aug. 5. The North German
three-masted schooner Saare, was cap

Paris, Aug. 6. The number of French
troops engaged before Weissbaden was
8,000. They had to contend with tbe
Prussian army corps, including picked
troops of the Guard. In spito of inferi
ority in numbers, the French resisted the
assault for several hours with admirable
heroism. The Prussian loss was so heavy
tbat they did not dare pursue..
At Saarbrucken we have ; broken tne

Bismarck's Opinion of the Ameri
can Government. Lippincotfs . Mag
zinc has the following :
Bismarck himself publicly declared
his conviction that popular representation,
as exemplified in the United States, was
the only sure and permanent foundation
on which the governing system of a great
people could rest. It is a remarkable and
significant thing that Bismarck, who had
so long been regarded by Englishmen as
a living symbol of the most dogged and
uncompromising Toryism, should come
to receive as he did, the public and cor
dial thanks of . the English Beform
League (then the most radical organiza
tion in England, composed of men, who
regard John Brieht as slow and conserv-'
ativel for his fundamental principle bf
free government. I presume we may
take Bismarck's own word for It, that he
had learned his great lesson in the art ot
government, from the . teachings of the
American war; : The echo of Appomat
tox rolled along the Khine, Elbe, the
Spree and the Danube. r
The Merry Wives o Hamilton.
The White Pine News of the 14th says.
A party of our city matrons chartered
a coach vesterday, and packed it wit
themselves for a trip to Shermantown
and vieinitv : but we nave our own ideas
bout this. It looked very much" aa if
this lunch business was a "blind," and
that the expedition is of a political char
acter. Not a male oitisen, excepting the
driver, was in the crowd : and he looked

Length op the War. The N. Y.
Herald gives some interesting informa-
tion with regard to the duration of late
European wars. In the Crimean war of
1853-6, Turkey" declared war against
Russia, October 5, 1853. - Russia - de
clared war against Turkey, November 1.
France and England declared war against
Russia, March 27-28, 1854. Sardinia
joined the allies, January 26, 1855.
Sweden joined the allies, November 21,
and hostilities were suspended, February
29, 1856. The war between the Western
Powers and Russia lasted two yearsi lack
ing one month. . The Itallian war of 1859

be seen that active hostilities lasted but

war of 1854, covered a space of but
twenty-two weeks of actual hostilities.

begun by Prussia, Jane 14. Italy de

The treaty of peace between Prussia and
Austria was signed at Prague, August
29, and between Austria and Italy at
Vienna, October 4. Actual hostilities
only five weeks. In the present war,
should Napoleon, through the" force of
circumstances, declare for a republic

A Singular Compliment. John
B. Gough tells the following story,
though the joke is at his own expense.
Once while on a lecturing tour through
England he was introduced to a village
audience in these terms :
Ladies and gentlemen, I'ave the 'onor
to hintroduce to you the distinguished
lecturer, Mr John B. Gougb, who : will
haddress us on the subject of temperance.
You know that temperance is thought to
be rather a dry subject ; but to-night, a
