A eable of the 7th inst. states that the

A man in Easton, Peon., who had stolen
some wood, tied it up in a bundle, mak
ing n slip-knot in the other end of the
rope, which he placed around his neck.
Before he had gone far the bundle slip

In this man's fate we see an example
that should be a warning to all wood
stealers. Reform ere it be too late.
The Iaondon Saturday Review declares
that "General Grant's message to Con
gress confirms the suspicion that he has
fallen under the sinister influence of
General Butler." The Oakland JVmts,
commenting on this sys: ,
Don't fret, John, you know. It is
very clear from his message that our
Chief Magistrate is not under the influ
ence of that beef eating old party, Mr.
Fusst. At a recent trial in San
Francisco, involving the validity of the
anti-Chinese basket ordinance, on argu
ment of the -demurrer filed by counsel fur
-defense, the law was quoted, which
reads as follows ; "And no person shall
carry a basket or baskets upon any side
walk suspended upon or attached to poles,
cross or upon the shoulders." Counsel
argued that his Chinaman had not been
carrying ?a sidewalk suspended upon or
attached to poles ; " that although he
was a hard-working Chinaman, he never
wndertook to carry a sidewalk ! The
Jadge, seeing the point, took the ques
tion under advisement. '
Is navigable about ten miles. The
"North" and "South Forks" unite about
five miles from its junction with the Biy,
and each fork is navigable for about five
miles. The main river, and each fork, is
walled in with high, precipitous moun
tains. Ihe sou of the "bottoms" is very
rich, but the bottoms are very narrow
not being more than half a mile wide in
the widest places ; and, in many instan
ces, the mountains several of them solid
granite come to the water's edge. The
river b very crooked, and in its bends
and narrow bottoms are many nice - little
farms. But farming here is very differ
ent frorr farming in the Willamette val
ley. The largest farms here consist of
about twenty acres of tillable land some
consist of five or six acres. The princi
pal products are gaiden vegetables and
apples. There are some as fine orchards
as I ever saw in th6 Willamette. Some
oats are raised, for hay, and a little wheat,
for chicken feed. All the flour that is
used here come from San Francisco, as
there is no flouring mill in th'u part of the
country. No wagons are used on the
farms. In fact there arc but two or three
wagons on the river, and not more than
that number of farms on which they
could be used to advantage. Previous
to last Sept. the fanners had to trans
port their produce to market in open
boats, which was very laborious and, at
times, dangerous. Two little steamers are
now making regular trips, twice a week,
up the river. Some apples are shipped
to San Francisco, but a ready market is
found for most of the produce, at the
towns and coal mines on the bay. Land
on the river is valued at from fifteen to
twenty dollars per acre.
The weather is still remarkably pleas
ant, the thermometer ransriuz from 45
to 50, and very little rain. Frogs keep
up their croaking, and flies and gnats,
though not as abundant as in the sum
mer, are yet in sufficient quantities to
make their presence known.
There is some excitement about the
"tt:itninu" on the Columbia river; and
oue of our wealthiest men talks of mov
ing his business to that place about the
first of next March. At any rate he will
visit it at that time to sec what he can
. In my other communication, the place
left blank should have been filled with
fifteen thousand, as that is the number of
feet our mills cut per day.
The Register visits us regularly, and
all appreciate it very highly.

A Democratic paper of this coast says
that "nothing is clearer in the future"
than the defeat of Grant in the Republi

Henry Wilson to be the coming man. It
gives us great pain to republish this opin

A proposition is on foot to annex Utah

delegation at Washington - have , been
assured by prominent members of ' Con

attacked and a man named George Kane
killed and eighteen mules driven off".

Married In Fun.
The Albany Journal tells this story :
For some time past there has been in
existence in this city a sort of society or
club, composed of ladies and gentlemen,
and formed for the cultivation of their
histrionic tastes, and to prepare them
selves for a life of future usefulness upon
the dramatic stage, as well as for social
enjoyment. The rooms in which they
massacre Shakspeare and tear Dumas to
pieces are situated on State street, in the
heart of the business portion thereof, and
the unusual sounds incident to high
tragedy emanating therefrom have no
doubt often attracted the attention of the
passer-by. But these rooms, the scene
of so many mock representations, beheld
something a few evenings since far differ
ent from anvthinz ever before enacted
within their walls no less than
A COMEDY IN REAL LIFE
On that certain evening the members
of the club had assembled as usual, but
on consideration ot it being the holiday
season, a motion to dispense with the dra
matic exercises, and betake themselves to
various methods of social enjoyment, met
with much favor, and was unanimously
adopted. For a time the minutes flew
merrily by in the various games usually
indulged in at social parties. These,
however, soon became monotonous, and
a number of feminine and masculine
heads might have been seen in close
proximity devising some new mode of
entertainmejit. Their ready wits were
for a time unable to discover anything
which would serve to amuse, until at last
a young lady, her bright eyes brimming
over with merriment and mischief, pro
posed A MOCK MARRIAGE,
"Just for fun, you know." This propo
sition was eagerly seconded by another
bewitching damsel, and it seemed impos
sible that either of them had any ulterior
object in view, the new divertisement was
agreed to by all. Preparations were im
mediately made for having the interest
ing ceremony performed with all due
solemnity. A young law student volun
teered to act in the capacity of officiat
ing clergyman, while two other well
known young men gladly agreed to accept
the duty of going through the formula
with the young ladies aforesaid. All
things being in readiness, the two young
couple were joined together, strictly in
accordance witn the text of the service,
SOLEMNLY PRONOUNCED MAN AND WIFE,
Amid the delighted laughter of - those
who acted as spectators at the success of
the plan. Many were the jokes the
newly-wedded were made victims of, and
which were hearti ly enjoyed by the young
husbands themselves. All this wan well
enough so far, and continued so until the
time arrived for separating. The hus
bands had donned their coats and hats,
preparatory to their departure, and had
already bade the rest good night. But
at this juncture a change cauic over the
spirit of their fun. The young wives
were not going to allow their new-made
lords to leave them in such a cruel, un
husbandlike manner, and
INSISTED ON TIIE1R R.IUIIT AS WIVES
Being given them, claiming the marriage
was just as legal and lawful as though
cemented by a real minister, inasmuch as
each of them made a public acknowledg
ment to take each other "for better or
worse" before witnesses. The youug
gentlemen were completely nonplussed
by this unexpected termination of the
evening's enjoyment ; but of course flat
ly refused to consider themselves bound
by the farcical service performed. In
this interesting state the affair now stands
and will no doubt, if the young ladies
persist in their determination, give some
of our lawyers work to do.
A correspondent of the New York
Herald, who was present in Jefferson
City on the - occasion of Gen. Blair's
election to the United States Senate,
General Blair emphatically declared
that the West would demand, that if a
Democrat was elected he should come,
like young Loch invar, "out ol the West."
Upon asking what they thought about
Tammany's claims, a distinguished gen
tleman from St Louis answered, "Tam-
llomestic Troubles. !
Frank Ashneaur, of the Ilalfway
House, on tr e Siitterville river road, came
to this office yesterday for the purpose of
publishing a card in relation to Stephen
Baldwin, who, Ashneaur says, has taken
his wife from him aud is living with her.
We advised him against this course, as it
was the last thing that any man should
do to thus bring his family troubles be
fore the public and forever disgrace him
self and them. He said that Baldwin
threatened to shoot him, and that the
probability was that one of them would
soon be killed. He left, however, tak
ing our advice. This morning he came
back and told us that Baldwin rode up
to his house (at the junction of the Siit
terville graveyard road with the river
near the old saw mill) at dusk last even
ing, and asked if Ashneaur lived there,
and dared him to show his face. Ash
neaur opened the door, and at once Bald
win beiiun to fire at him with a pistol.
The first ball cut through his clothes near
his skin, but did no damage, and then
Ashneaur. shut the door, telling lialdwin
not to murder his boys, two of whom
were in the house, but Baldwin paid no
attention to him, and kept firing away
until ho had fired four times, without,
however, hurting any one. Ashneaur
came into town this noon to procure a
warrant for his arrest Ashneaur says
that for seven years Baldwin has been
after his daughter, and that he (Ash
neaur) told her to marry him if she liked
him, but she retused, and at last uaia
win took away his wife by making her
believe that he was worth $40,000, Frank
says he is not worth 40,000 cents. She
is a good old woman, but foolish, and
Ashneaur does not like to part with her
thus. He says he has been advised to
kill Baldwin, but that he does not like to
kill any one, no matter how bad he may
be, but he desires now that he shall not
be allowed to kill him.
A Growler. A rich Boston ian who
is in the Lenox jail, to serve five years
in default of paying a fine of S200.000
for defrauding the Government, is just
now distinguishing himself. At the time
he was sentenced, the Court humanely
allowed him to select his prison from
among any in the State of Massachusetts.
He selected Lenox. The athorities now
propose to remove the jail to Pittsfield,
and he insists that there is no power to
compel him to be imprisooed there, or in
any other place than Lenox, to which his
sentence consigned him. The case had
not yet been determined between the au
thorities and the rebellious prisoner.

Killed his own Child in a Dream.
We have heard of one of the strangest
and saddest cases of dreaming, says the
Guernsey (Ohio) Time, that ever. occur
red, which took place in Meigs township,
Muskingum county, a week or two since,
in which a man by the name of Dutton
killed his own child, an infant daughter.
From the statement made it appears that
Mr. Dutton bad been out coon-huntinj
the nisht on which this melancholy oe.
currence took place, and, coming home
late at night, tired and weary, retired to
rest, and tell into a restless, uneasy slum
ber, and dreamed that he had caught a
coon and killed it by striking it against a
tree. His wife was awakened by his
killing, as ho supposed, the coon, and
on observing bis strange actions, and be
holding the child in his Viands, raised a
frightful scream, which awakened him
from his slecD and revealed to them tbe
fact that he had killed his own child by
beating it to death against the bed-post,
killinz it almost instantly. This sad case
in without a parallel, and is the most
horrible in its result of any dreaui we ever

It affords me much plcauro to give you, iu these
few line1, a rery sincere testiruouialTor the Piano
l'tirtes of your manufacture. Wo have now used
the "Patent Arion Pianos" in our Cons-erratories

ing their durability during that time. Tbe Pianos
have been played upon almost constantly, from
morning till night, and a Piano must indeed be a
good one wben it will bearsucb constant u?e with

What makes them still more desirable is their
uniform volume of tono, which enables an Artist to
perform a composition in its true character.
In total, I can conscientiously endorse all that is
claimed by the Arion Piano - Forte Company for

Messrs. J. N. HARRIS CO. Gents t About
on year ago I took a eold which settled on my
lungs. A violent cough wea the consequence,
which increased with severity. I expectorated
large quantities of phlegm and matter. During
the last winter I became so much reduced that I
was confined to my bed. The disease was attend,
ed with eold chills and night-sweats. A diarrhoea
set in. My friends thought I was in the last
stages of consumption, and could not possibly get
well. I was recommended to try
Allen's Lung IJaltsivnx
The formula was given to me, which induced me
to givo it a trial, and I will only add that my
cough Is entirely cured, and I am now able to at
tend to my business as usual. Yours respectfully,
