A .JT arrow Escape from Scddev Death.
On Wednesday some of the older children of
Judge Powers, of this city, had got into Dr.
Hill's buggy, taking with them their baby broth
er, intending to ride down to the drug store. From
some unexplained cause the burse took a notion
to run off. The larger children all succeeded in
jumping from the vehicle, sustaining' no injury.
Tbe baby, some sixteen or eighteen months of
age, not being in tbe jump, clung tenaciously
to the seat, and rode very well until the buggy
was npset. When Dick, the baby, was picked up,
he was found to have sustained severe injuries
about the head, pieces of flesh having been torn
from the scalp, was bathed ia blood and insensi
ble. We learn this morning that the littlo fellow
is all right, and will soon recover from his bruises
but he had a narrow escape. :

Shepherd, received a day or two since, informs us
of his and Miss Smith's safe arrival at tbe old

nroved most beneficial to Miss Lizzie Smith, ber
health improving almost from the start.- . As an
evidence that Father Shepherd's visit to Oregon
was worth the money, since bis arrival at borne
ia Iowa, all his friends (especially the most nu
merous portion of them the ladies) declare that
he looks at least twenty-five years younger than
he did when be left Iowa to visit Oregon ! Just
one more trip and be would look, younger than
anybody merely an evidence of the beneficial

ranging up, it is supposed, toward the heart, . a
A cutting scrape occurred a few .miles below-; a

declines taking legal steps.' '' '
