The Bounty Lands.
As there are quite a number of citi
zens of this county who Lave 6erved as
soldiers, at various times, under the U. S.
Government, who will be glad of any in
formation touching their rights to bounty
land, bounty money, etc., we -.take the
earliest opportunity to give all the in
formationi on the subject which we have
at hand. B. F. Dowell, Esq., of the
Sentinel, who is now in Washington City,
wri'es to his paper that "there has been
no change of the law of March 8, 1855 ;
that set applies to soldiers who ' have
served and been paid . by the United
States prior to the passage of the . act,
which was March 3, 1855." The. article
further recites:'""'"..'.- ; - ; i j.-, -
Under tbis law the volunteers wbo .erred un
der Captain Walker and Captain Olney in 1854,
although the service was rendered prior to the act,
inasmuch as no appropriation wa. made for their
payment prior to the 3d of March, 1855, are 'not
entitled to land warrants for such service under
the existing laws, although by the recent act of
Congress they are entitled to pay for their serv
ices. , . : . ...
By the act of July 15, 1S70, the right to home-
s'ead 160 acres of tbe government reserved lands
along the railway lines is secured to erery soldier
wbo served under the United States government
for ninety days -or more during the rebellion.
The provision of tbe homestead law in regard to
settlement and cultivation apply the same to these
as to any other homestead?. Xuere are no land
warrants for such services, the parties availing
themselves of the provision, of the act, acquiring
their titles in the same manner as other home
stead settlers. . ' ' ' "
By an act approved Feb. 14, 1871, any one "of
the old revolutionary soldiers, who served 60 days
in the war of 1812, which ended December 24,
1814, and has not yet rcccivetLa pension, is enti
tled to $3 per month. ' If they are already in re
ceipt of a pension only so much as will make- op
tbe $3 per month in all will be allowed. Tbe
widows of such who were married to them prior to
December 24, 1814, and have not since re-married,
are entitled to the same benefits as theis hus
bands would be if living. Where soldier, enlisted
duriug the rebellion for three years or during tbe :
war, and only served two full years and a portion
over, and have received $210 bounty, they are not
entitled to any more.
These are all the laws and provisions of laws
that apply to cases within our knowledge in this
A Roman Catholic Judge on a
Religious Question. The San Fran
cisco Chronicle's Loudon correspondent
recites the fulluwiDg particulars of a case
recently brought before a Catholic Judge,
Lord Chancellor O'llaan, which created
considerable comment in the "old coun
try." The points iu the case and the
Judge's decision are thus given :
In Septrmber, 1359, R. W. Meade.' a Protestant,,
married a Catholic lady, with the understanding.
both before and at the time of the marriage, that
if daughters were born tbey should be educated as
Komau tiiitioiits. x wo girls were corn, one in
lSflu, another iu 1S61, and were brought up in the
religiou agreed upon until the death of their
mother, wbich took place in October, 1867. The
sisicr of Mrs. Meade then took charge of the chil
dren, residing in the house, and everything went
on as before until March, 1S70, when Mr. Meade,
then about to contract a second marriage, and ig
nor.ng altogether the solemn promise made to tbe
mother of hi. OwTfldren, declared bis intention of
having them educated as Protestants. Two days
alter this avowal the children were placed under
the charge of a Portestant, their auut engaging
not to interfere while she remained in the house.
This went on until the end of the year, when the
Lord Chancellor was applied to by the aunt, and
tbe allegation made that the children were at
heart Roman Catholics, and proporly ought to be
again placed with tbe petitioner, who was ready to
provide Tor thim in a manner beCtting their sta
tion. The question to be settled was, whether or
not, the children being Roman Catholics, it was
tbe duty of the Court to prevent their being in
fluenced by their father, he being of a ditlerent
religion. . It was also alleged that they bad only
complied "outwardly" with the desire ot their
father relative to their instruction in Protestant
ism, curing tbe months they were not under the
charge of their aunt. The children were exam
ined, notwithstanding their extreme youth, as to
what their own ideas might be on tbe .abject of
religion, and the eldest declared she wxuldnot at
present make any choice between the two, though,
at tbe aame time, remarking that her faith in
Catholicism was somewhat shaken. It must have
been ratber amuaiug to hear a girl of ten years
holding forth after this fashion, and remind, one
of tbe good child in the Sabbath-school books,
who always died young and went straight to
Heaven. This precious littlo girl, moreover, said
she would not object to continue to go to the Prot
estant church, nor was it against her eonacienee to
attend the school. Her sister agreed with her.
and after soma discussion on other points the pe
tition was dismissed.
Immigration. The "leading" papers
of the State California are all howling
for more liberal immigration. They, all
seem to think that the great panacea for
all the wants-of California is to be found
in larger immigration., liut the most
careless observer must be aware that Cal-
liorniaana especially ban Francisco is
now full of unemployed persons.' We do
not need an increased immigration of per
sons in quest of employment, the worse it
is lor that very large portion ot oar own
population who are vainly seekinz for.
work which they can do on such terms
as will enable them to make a . decent
liring. .The undisguised and nndisguis-
able tact is, that under the cxistiug con
ditiou of things California has quite as
large a population of men'Who expect to
earn a living by, work as she neeas.
does not in truth seem to De enoB -est
work to do for the honest workers.

snored, and the lean man therefor lay
awake. .At about midnight tbe lusommo
legislator could no longer stand. the atea
torious breathing of his mate, and'' arose
and sat by the fire. An old lady entered,,
and wanted a place to sleep. ' "Go to my
berth, said the sardonic lean one, "1
left uiy little boy asleep there; I shall
sit up. I must think of legislative things."

PetitIo! to Remove a P. " "Mf
Eighty-one out of about one Imnrired
ana -twenty persons who are supplied
with mail matter at Weston, in- Umatilla
county, Oregon, have, without reference
to party, petitioned for the removal of
their present Post-master, alleging "that
be is "grossly incompetent to attend' to
the duties of said office." This is rather
"hefty" on the "P. M.,", especially when
we recollect that he is a member of that
august body the Oregon Legislatare.
As be got a large majority in his -Own
precinct at the election last Jane, it is
but lair t presume that a great number
of those who now allege his incompetency
to act as Post-master at a little- way-side
Post-Office, voted for him for State Sena
tor at that. time. The Democracy, of
Umatilla have queer notions, . one of
which is, that a man requires more abili
ty to act as Postmaster in their county,
