The l'ate of a Fighting- Dorg.
BT SIM TEI.TOH.
A man be ewned a terrier dorg
bob-tailed, onery cuss
And that there purp got that there man.
In many an ugly mus :
For tbe man be was on bis muscle,
Aud tbe dorg was on his bite,
So to kick that dorg-goned animile
-Was sure to raise a fight. :
A woman owned a Thomas cat,
That fit- at fifteen pound ;
And other cats got up and slid
When that there cat was rouud.
The man and his dorg came along one
Where the woman she did dwell.
And the purp he growled so ferociously,.
Then he went for the cat like .
He tried to chaw the neck of the cat.
But the est, he wouldn't be chawed,
1 So he lit on the back of that there dorg, - -
And bit! and clsswed I and clawed 1. fi
Oh, the hair it flew! and the purp heyouled!
As the claws went iuto his hide ;
And chunks of flesh were peeled from bis back;
Then flummuxed, and kicked and died.
The man he ripped, and cussed, and swore,
As bu fathered a big brickbat.
That he would be durued os? entiully
If he didn't kill that cat ! he did !
But the woman allowed tdip'd be blessed if
And snatched up the old shotgun.
Which sho fired-, and peppered his diaphragm
With bird-shot number one.
They toted him borne on a window blind,
And the doctor cured him up ;
But he never was known to fight again,
Or to own another purp. ,
Folks may turn up their snootsat this rhyme,
I d-jn't care a cu.s for that !
All I wanted to show is, that fijrhting dorgs
May tackle the wrong Tom cat.

Census Facts in Lane County. E.
P. Henderson, Esq., Assistant U. S. Mar
shal, returns the following facts to the
Eugene papers, which are of interest:
There are seven hundred and eighty
farms in this county fully reported,.- and
a lew not reported at all. . 1. here are
fortv-ei"ht manufacturing houses, inolud
ing shops and n ills, which produce ever
8500 worth annually.
The following arc some of the , fold
lollcs to be uiet witu in travelling over
the country. I mention them in the
order of my visits :
Mrs. Leasure, of Euircre City ,- 80
years old, a native ot Kentucky : Mr
Eakiti, of Eugene preciuct, is 83 and his
wife 84 years old, both natives of 'the
Emerald Isle." This is the oldest corpU
in the country ; they live with their son, ,
I. S. Elkin, three miles west of Eugene.
Mr. Solomon Cox is 77 years old, a
native of Tennessee, and lives with his
son, Mr. J. Cox, three miles south of
Eugene. Mr. Joshua McPhearson, of
Springfield precinct, i 87 years ld, a
native of South Carolina ; he lives with
his adopted daughter, Miss Rebecca Kirk
patric, aged 71, and his daughter, Miss
Amy McPhearson, aged 55 j-ears j 1 Mc
Phearsou is the oldest man in the coun
ty ; E. Bristow, ot Pleasant Hill precinct,
is 82 and his wife 78 years old; he is a
native of Virginia and ere of Tennessee.
Dr. Graham, of coast Fork precinct, is 74,
a native of Virginia, and said he "was a
Democrat dyed in the wooL" Mrs. Mary
Swift, of the same precinct, is 87 years
old, a native of Virginia; she lives with
her son-in-law. and . daughter, Mr. and
Mrs. John Currin, and is the oldest wo

a native of Virginia ; Mrs. S. O'Kelly,

large washing before her,- wlicu I visited
her residence; not many women of 60 or
60 years so rugged. Mr- Gideon Richard
son, of Long loin, is oU and his wife is
74 years old ; he is a native ot - V irginia
aud she of North Carolina.' N. G-- Cole
man, of Siuslaw precinct, is 75 and his
wife 70 years old ; he was born ; in New
Jersey and she in Pennsylvania. All old
people seem to enjoy good health for ' old
folks. There are many others whose ages
range from CO to 12, ftoo numerous to
mention.". The smallest grown person in
the county is Miss , of Lancaster
precinct : she js ii years old, aud. oot
larger than a common girl of 7 or. 8 years.
The largest according to age, is ji girl 16
years old, who probably weiitbs 825

naturalization frauds in that city t . J. !
Tbe organs of the "Rins?" eontissn: fawl
denounce the Acta of Con cress ts-arsvenk
frauds in naturalization, and Is.1
that any frauds have been tMrpetrs!
We beg leave to call their aitaakian toy

presided, and on each and every one ; of" '
these iUjUDo seperate papers appear law

We do not propose to dispute Jadge-
Barnard's word, but we cite it to- shew
that in his ewn court-room, and neces
sarily with the connivance and assistance
of clerks or officers. Of the Court,' bis sig
nature was forged to at least c.uud judg
ments, upon all of which ; certificates of
naturalization" were issued. Of these
10,096 judgments, 9,711 were on minor
.nni;(i-vni that is bv oeraona wha

claimed to have arrived in tne coamry
before the age of eighteen. In these
the production cf a "declaration of inten
tion" is dispensed with, the facts of res
idence for five years, and of being under
eighteen at the time -of arrival, being
proved by a witness, who in each case
swears to his personal knowledge of these
facts. One Deputy Sheriff swore to such
facts in 251 cases. Two notorious Eighth
Ward thieves, whose, names. appear al
most weekly in the Police reports, were
witnesses, one in sixty-eight -cases, the
other in 454. ' In fact, of the whole forty
thousand; "lecords of naturalization"'
manufactured in the Supreme and Supe
rior Courts of this City in the month ;f
October, 1868, less than twenty percent,
are free from palpable evidenees o fraed.

certificates were issued of which there la
no record whatever is equally certain.

fraudulent votes, and ia in the eojojoieat

means of the wrong-doing. ' V ill ne, or
will the tools and organs of the villians
