Mb. Editor : Last Saturday proved
to be one of the liveliest dajs Brownsville
as witoessed r for .some . months. - The
streets were almost blockaded with teams,
the sidewalks crowded with busy fect
and basinsss men generally well pleased
with their days' Work, 'and went to . bed
thiak-kig that tbe fabulous town of II a 1-
sey, so lately grown into notoriety, had
not injured the trade ot Brownsvilleyet,
: One of the attractions of the day , was
horse show, at whieh. the claims tynd
superiorities of the diflerent -worses, in
the neighborhood vere urged npoa .the.
raisers of that kin4, .of .stock. Wr re
sorry there was not inCre animals . on ex
hibition, but what there ' waa-.ntade . s'
very creditable appearance, showing that
there are as good horses in Oregon as any
where else... . '
The Linn County Lodge of the I.O-
of G.T. met at the Good Templar, Hall
in tho afternoon ; quite a number of
members of, the different lodges of this
praiseworthy order were present, and the
lite and interest exhibited snowed very
unmistakably that the order' is in a
healthy condition.' Delegates were elec-;
ted to attend the State Temperance Con
vention that meets at Salem on the 16th
of June. - " ' ;"' '
' ' . y .i i ... ... . .
A public temperance meeting was held
t the M. E. Church in the evening ; the
attendance was good. Bey. A. Robede-.
livered a very logical and Dointcd address.
which went far to prove to the intelligent
audience present tht the use of iotoxi
catin? liquor as a beverage is a useless
as well as a Very wicked practicecntail
ing numberless evils upon . the human
system, as well as being very deleterious
to the moral welfare of society. He was
followed by tbe Kev. W. K. Bishop, who,
in his own laughable way, made lots of
fun for the boys, A few appropriate
songs were rendered by the singers, and
upon the whole the meeting passed off
pleasantly, and was considered a success.
JKrot. 1j. Uary, tae popular- lecturer on
Astronomy, has just been around and
gave us two of his highly instructive, and
entertaining exhibibitiors. lie has wttb
him an instrument called. a lellurion,
hicb is a remarkable piece "of inventive
genius, showing very accurately how the
earth and moon pass round the sun. caus
ing the different seasons of the year.' His
illustrations on canvass, shown by a lan
tern, of the planetary system, was very
complete, and seveal of us learned some
things we did not know before. Persons
going to hear the Professor need not be
atraid bat what they will get the worth
of their" money. 'i- We were sorry he was
not better patronized, as the attendance
on both evenings" was small. I .,

From tbe Versailles, (Mo.,) Gaiette.
Our readers will remember! that last
Vail, a conditional marriage between jack
Hams and Mrs. Jane Kroner, wee (jeret,
of this county, was chronicled, ia which
it was stipulated that should tieorge lru
ner ever return from Idaho, the marriage
should be ;held for nought. George
formerly was Jane's husband, bat several
years ago some difficulty having occurred,
they were divorced.
Tbe , married,? lile .ot : Monsieur and
Madame Rains was moving along smooth
ly enough until some ten days ago, when
one stormy evening George Bruner pot
in his appearance at the JKains mansion.
' George had been digging for. -gold in
Idaho and come home with , his pockets
stuffed full of it. As a matter of course
the hospitality of the Rains mansion was
extended to him, and George entertained
the family circle by descriptions of the
Heathen CbineCand ot his, own hair-
bieadth 'scapes from the griitly bears. .
: "The tale he told" revived in Mrs
Rains her latent love for the hero,' and
next morning Mr. Ramm "was - reminded
ol the Btupulations m hu marriage eon
tract. A few days after, Mr. Rains and
Bruner were in town together, consulting
lawyers and indulging in sundry and v
rious libations." ;- " "
Last Monday morning, at the adjourn
ed session of the Circuity Court, Rai
presented hia petition fora divoree, alleg
ing, aa a ease thsrofur, that his wife was
living in open adultery with one George
Brunei. "At the same time notice, was
waived, and an answer filed, virtually ad
mitting all the allegations in the petition.
Next morning a decree was asked from
the Court.: n J.--"., - l
His Honor, Judge Riee, however, gave
the parties to . understand ' that . they
were not ia Indiana. lie animadverted
in rather strong terms upon the proceed
ings. He said that the defendant's, an
swer, if submitted to the, Grand Jury,
might rttbjeet ber to criminal prosecu
tion. He remarked " that the plaintiff
swore that there was no collusion between
the" parties, yet, o the same day the -petition
was Lied, notice Is waived and
answer admitting the facts is CJed, and
next sy a decree is asked. There" was
sonttLiDg wrocjf . about this, and he
