FEW REASONS WHY
SUPERIOR TO ALL OTHERS.
THK'ARION PIANO-FORTE has Greater
Power than any other other Piano Forte manu
factured. IT WILL STAND IN , TUNE LONGER
and in its mechanical construction it is more per
fect, and therefore, more auraiile man any instru
ment constructed in toe usual modern style.
The arangement of the Agrnflo, the manner of
st rinsing. the peculiar form and arrangement of
the Iron Frame,
Supersedes all Others.
The use of a hart, (which is a part of the Iron
Frame) on a line with the heavy steel stringing,
Where most needed, and in this respect all other
The construction of the WREST PLANK, into
which the Tuning Pins are inserted, is such that it
is impossible for the pins to become loosened, or
the Wrest Plank itself to split, as is too often the
case in other Piano-Fortes,
THE EXTRAORDINARY EVEN
NESS, Throughout the entire scale, the excellent Singing
Length and Puriti on Vibration,
All go to prove what we claim, viz. : that the
Is the Lest Instrument Marufactured.

Figurative. We have received two pages and
a quarter of closely written foolscap, one entire
page of which is solid figures, from James Jami
son Shcasgrecn, of North Yamhill, purporting to
be a "confirmation of those curious figures pub
lished in tho Independence litbje," with a request
to publish. We acknowledge our inability to get
at the meaning of this immense amount of figur
ing, or to tell just how tho production is to be
"setup." At the close of the first page of this
remarkable production, is the statement that the
year 1S72 will usher in "Union and universal
peace," a consummation devoutly .fhe wished,
certainly, and one which we hope, for tho sake of
Mr. Shcasrccn's veracity, if for no other reason,
may prove true. In another plaee he says "1871
will prove to be tho end of the TOO years of tribu
lation of th. Irish people," which will bo hailed
by the Irish and their friends everywhere with
pleasure and satisfaction I He concludes his
"curious figures" thns : " P. S. I notify the
people of the nations to publish and circulate
this calculation with all the expedition that money
anil printing uiaterinl cau afford," and that's just
what we have douc published all wecould afford
to for the money.
New York correspondeat of the Sati '-

There is a distnibance in "iha tarmony

t affords me much ldeaure to cive you, lu theso
few linc, a very sincere testimonial for tho Piano
Forte? of your manufacture. Wo have now used
the "Patent Arion Pianos" in our Conservatories
for a year, anil have had a fair opportunity of test
ing their durability during that time. The Pianos
ave Leeu played inmn almost constantly, trout
morning till night, and a Piano must indeed be a
good one wben it wiil bear such constant usewith
out chowiug signs of defection. As for remaining
n tune, it out rivals any Pinno known to me.
1 heir peculiar sweetness of tone in tne treuie ,
as compared to other Pianos with the ordinary
mctal'agraffe arrangement ) is so striking that 1
have had pnpils remark, while takitigtheirlessons,
that although thev had at home what they sup-
sed to be one of the best makes of Pianos, slill
lie treble was very wircy tcued compared with the
What makes them still more desirable is their
uniform volume of tone, which enables an Artist to
perform a composition in ila true character.
In total, I can conscientiously endorse an mar is
hi imed bv the Arion Piano - Forte Company for
their superb iustruments, as I consider them su
perior to any other make.
Congratulating you upon tho great success you
ave obtained in the manufacture of so perfect an
instrument, I rcmaiu yours.

Annctto as a coloring matter for: cheese
seems to be coming into disrepute at tbe
largo factories. The demand for white
and uncolored cheese seems to be steadily
increasing. Some of th.e Herkimer -'fancy
factories" bare been making this '
kind all the Benson, and the sales haTe
been at tbe highest rates. If it were not
for the requirements of certain English
merchants, there would be no difficulty
in banishing all colored . materials from
the cheese vats. Especially would this .
bo the case if it were generally understood
that the annetto used for coloring is pois
onously adulterated. . ?
. Good News. The long projected
enterprise of building a ditch from Butte
creek begins to assume the form of a
certainty. Arrangements, we understand,
have already been nfade for a preliminary
survey, with the design of laying: the
facts in the case before the public at an ear
lj day. If tho result proves the enterprise
practicable, let us have the ditch. ;We
hare the richest mining district on - tha
coast, but this fact will avail us nothing
without water, and that can only be had
by or through a ditc'a. If this is tbe
case, and no ono would pretend to deny
it, "why stand ye here all the day idle; .
why don't you go to work. Jacksonville

many must show to the country, from her

The Chicago woman suffragists, at their
convention recently, resolved "that man's
headship in the State, the church and the
home, is an exploded idea of the dead
past, opposed to a Republican Govern

women have a right to vote without fur

They propose to register and offer; their
votes at the next Presidental election, and
if their ballots are refused they say they
