Railroad Meetino. A fair attend
ance was had at the railroad meeting on
last Saturday night, and upon the vote
being taken, the meeting was unanimous
ior accepting the note proposition of Mr.
Ilolladay, in lieu of the subscription pa
pers issued some time since. Each sub
scriber on those papers gives his note
for the amount subscribed, payable thirty
days after the road is finished to this
city, provided such completion is had by
July, 1871. It was the general feeling
that Mr. Ilolladay is coming out of his
way, at considerable extra expense, and
against the wishes of those who would
fain see Albany left "out in the cold," in
. making our city a point on his road, and
that the $50,000 asked for is nothing
: more than his just due for so doing. The
form of the hate, as given above, has been
accepted" by Mr. Ilolladay, and we sup
pose there will be no difficulty in chang
ing the subscriptions into cotes. We
must have a railroad, and to get it are
willing to aid in its construction. We
had better give the 850,000 and get the
road, even if it is not finished in two
years or more, thai to refuse to "come
down" and get lo road. Our prosperity j
as a city depends to a great exteut, we
might almost say, wholly, on our being
on the main trunt of the Oregon & Cali- j
fornia Railroad, and so small a matter as
the changing a subscription into a note
shouldn't cause a mouieut's hesitarrcy in
any ODe who has at heart the interests of
this community. The form of note has been
caret tiny gotten up ana printed, ana a
comamtee consisting of Messrs. Ilanon,
ittJntgomery, Barrows, Froman, Conner,
Ilogue and Foster appointed to attend to
getting them signed by those whose
Dames arc attached to the subscription
papers. It is to be hoped that each per
son will sign upon presentation, so that
there may be as little delay as possible in
fixing up the whole matter.
Appointments. The M. E. Annual
Conference, at its receut session at Van
couver, W. T.; made the following ap
pointnieuts for Salem District : N. Doane,

emy, J. B. Calloway. Principal; J. D.
Driver, agent American Bible Society,
and member Salem Quarterly Conference.
There were sixty five members present
at the Annual Conference. The follow
ing resolution was warmly discussed and
finally passed by the Conference :
Resolved, That the presiding Bishop
be requested hereafter to ask every
candidate for admission into this Confer
ence : "Do you use tobacco in any form ?"
and no person who will not pledge him
self forever to abstain from it's us, shall
Shooting Affair. The Albany Brew
ery on Broadalbin street, was the scene
a nT i i
; of a shooting attair on eancsaay
evening. It seems that Linn. Bowers,
! who lives three or four wiles from this
i city, ' Benton county, went into the
i brewery ou the evening in question, and
i called for beer. Charley Hoggers, one of
the proprietors, drew the beer. Alter a
few more words between the parties,
brought about by Roggers' disputing an
assertion made by Bowers, the latter re-
markea mat ue tip...-".- ---
to shoot some
before he left town.
Rogers remarked that if he wanted to
hhoot, he could pitch in, and he would
pay all expenses. A few words passed
between the parties, when Bowers re
marked, "I will shoot," acd drawing his
six-shooter he fired across the bar at
Rogers, but missed him. At the second
firehi3 aim was destroyed by the brewer,
John Netter, who caught him from be
hind, while Rogers hit him "one" over
the head with a beer mug, cutting quite
a gash. Bowers was soon disarmed aud
in the hands of the City Marshal, who
lost no time in carrying the shootinger
into the presence of the City Recorder
Arnold. Bowers, acting as his owu at
torney, in justification of the shoot
ing, said it was an agreement between
him and Roggers, that he was to shoot
and Regera was to pay all damages, and
he did shoot, and hurt nothing, while he
had received all the damages, in the way
of a large gash on the head. In view of
all the facts in the case, the Recorder
bound Linn. Bowers over in $500 to await
the action of the grand jury.
Retuuned. Messrs. Riley, Menden
hall, Althouse, and two others, after a
six days' hunt, brought down fifty-two
deer and one black bear. Messrs. Corn
ley, Chouse, Hurd and Pat. Farrell, after
a two days' hunt, killed nine deer.
Through the kindness of Mr. J. C. Men
denhall, we were presented with a ham,
which we relished muchly.
A Success. The Methodist Sewing
Society, held on Wednesday evening last,
at the residence of Judge li. M. Powers,
was a very pleasant and agreeable affair.
Mrs. Powers has the rare tact of making
her guests feel perfectly at home. The
church fund realized quite an amount
from the lanje number iu attendance.

Between the old and the new ; between high

small profits and ready pay on the other, still
continues to ra-ro with unabated fury at Browns

The "Pain Killer,"
After thirty tears trial, is still receiving the
most unqualified testimonials to its virtues, from
persons of the highest character and responsibility.
Physicians of the first respectability, recommend
it as a most effectual preparation for the extinc
tion of pain. It is not only the best remedy ever
known for Bruises, Cuts, Burns, Ic, but for Bys
iotery or Cholera, or any sort of bowel complaint,
it is a remedy unsurpassed for efficiency and ra
pidity of action. In the great cities of India. and
other hot climates, it has become the Standard
Medicine for all such complaints, as well as for
Dyspepsia, Liver Complaints and other kindred
disorder?. For Couirhs and Colds, Canker. Asth
ma and Rheumatic difficulties, it has been proved
by the xnost abundant and convincing testimony,
to be an invaluable medicine. Directions accom
pany each bottle. Sold by all Druggists.
Price 23 cts., 50 cts. and $1 per bottlo sept.

Messrs. L. Goldsmith & Co. On
last Tuesday Messrs. L. Goldsmith & Co.,'
of Portland, opened their immense stock
of foreign and domestic; dry goods, at 75
Front and 76 First streets, to which they
invite the atteution of the trade. From
a reference to their advertisement, which
appears in this issue, it will be seen that
their stock embraces every, variety of
goods demanded by the people of Oregon,
manufactured expressly to meet their
wants, and they will be disposed of at such
prices as cannot fail to prove beneficial
to the purchaser. If our merchants can
procure goods at as fair terms at Port
land as at San Francisco, it is obviously
to their interest so to do. Being confident
of , the ability and the disposition of
Messrs. L. Goldsmith & Co. to do this,
we heartily recommend our valley mer
chants to call and compare goods and
prices while at Portland. It will doubt
less save expenses to, and freight from,
San Franoisco. The character of the
firm for liberality and integrity is
Lire Insurance. The Company that
insures at low rates and pays all losses
promptly, is the Company to insure with.
See the card of Mr. Jacob, Adm'r. of
the estate of our late townsman S. Rosen
etein. The deceased insured in the New
England Life, through Messrs. Russell &
Elkius, for $5,000. In less than two
years thereafter he died, leaving his wife
and children nothing to protect them
from actual want, save and except this
life policy. The New England, through
its manager for Oregon, comes promptly
forward and pays the $5,000 in full, and
the family are placed in good circum
stances. Jas. Elkina is the agent for
. Albary. . . -.
Accident. A man at work on Beach
& Monteith's mill-race, just below the
