" Fine in the) , Woods. Somebody, either care
lessly or through malicious intent, set fire to a
large dead fir tree just across, the river from tbis
city, in Benton county, on Monday. . As the tree
was full of pitch it'burned rapidly, and the -fire
soon reached tbe limbs which, burning off, fell to
the ground and ignited the grass and ether com
bustible matter in the immediate vicinity. : From
this small beginning the fire spread and increased
until it reached a line of fence on tbe farm of J.
Quinn Thornton, Esq., which was soon in a lively
blaze, ' . Up to this time the fire bad been unm -tested,
Mrs. Thornton being absent at the time,
and other parties who noticed the fire supposed it
was intentional and was being attended to by
those interested. A gentleman calling at the res
idence of Mr. Thornton on business, about noon,
seeing tbe danger, promptly gave the alarm. Mrs.
Thornton also returned about this t:ne, and, with
two or three of the neighbors who bad been got
together, proceeded to the task of putting out the
fire,, which they succeded eventually in doing,
after working through the day and far into tbe
night. The fire destroyed fire or six hundred
yards of fence, besides killing a large number of
fine fruit trees. . Had tbe fire remained un mo
ted a short time longer, the entire orchard,
barn, outhouses, and tbe neat dwelling, fencing
and everything else combustible would have been
destroyed. It would he a godsend if parties who
are so careless in leaving fires where tbey can do
somub damage, could be arrested and made to
pay the full value of the damage' that they are
thus instrumental in-causing. One or two exam
ples would have a healthy influence in making
tbem a little more, careful. Every season, in
some portion cf the valley, this thing is beii.g re
peated, causing great distress and large loss of
property, J It is time that something was done to
awaken the careless and impenitent to a senee of
the danger they are running of getting them

: As Uxfoinueo Ruhor. The rumor that pre-
vailed on the street last week, to the effect that the
taking of tolls oa tbe Willamette Valley A Cas
cade Mountain Wagon Road ceased with the new
administration, and that the road was to be thrown
open to free travel, is an error, without any
foundation whatever. AVe learn from Mr. Hogg
that the tolls taken will be applied to keeping tbe
road in good repair, and if the amount taken at
the gates should prove in excess of what is needed
to keep tbe road in running order, tolls will be
correspondingly lowered. It is the intention to
make this as good a mountain road as any on tbe
coast.' - " " '
Fkom Lapwai AeEScr. A letter from Sir. I.
S. Waldrip, dated Lapwai Agency (I. T.), August
5th, informs us of the safe arrival of Mrs. W. and
children at the Agency, all well, but somewhat
fatigued from their lung journey by stage from
Wallula, the steamers having ceased making trips
up Snake river. lie speaks of tbe Agency a in a
flourishing condition ; says be is full of work re
pairing old bouses and erecting new ones, repair
ing mills, furniture, etc.; Speaks of the Kez
Perccs as a splendid tribe of Indians wlio are
neither on the beg, borrow or steal, and who are
slowly advancing in the arts of civilization. All
the late residents of Albany now quartered there
aro enjoying splendid health, and are highly
nlcased with their new home. ' We should be
pleased to bear from them often. . Write. " .
Rtcn Quartz. As rich a specimen of mineral
bearing quartz as we hare seen was handed to us
on Wednesday by Mr. Jack McQuade.s: The spec
imen in our possession was taken from a ledge in
the Sautiam country, discovered by Mr. McQuade
the 21st of June last, and assays eighty per cent,
lead. In each ton of tbe quarts there is said to
be $40 silver and $7 of gold. In tho specimen
before us there is plainly to , be seen with tbe
naked eye small (pecks of gold. If capitalists
could be induced to take hold of this ledge there
seems to be not a particle of doubt but that it
would pay : richly for ' working. The Santiam
mines are bound to make fortunes for some of tbe
adventurous ones yet. Parties who wish to ex
amine rich quartz can do so be calling on us. -
' ' Lost Letter. A letter dated Mansfield, Ohio,
February 22d, and signed Martha Latimer, has
been handed us with the request that we notice
the fact so that the: owner may call and get it.
The envelope having boon taken from tbe letter
leaves us in doubt as to who it is directed to ; we
think, however, that it was originally directed to
a party named Hanna. Enclosed in tbe letter is
a Rembrandt of a handsome young lady. The
owner of the letter can have it by calling at this
offiee.-' --; ' ' ' ! ' - - ' -
Tub DiAMoan Spectacles. By reference to
our advertising columns this n orn'uig, it will he
observed that the Titus Brothers have been ap
pointed agents for the sale of those wonderful
glasses in Linn county, where all who wish a su
perior glass should go at once and secure a pair.
Although they have been in receipt of the first
invoice but a few days, they have sold several
dozen,' parties, after trying on the "Diamond,"
throwing their old glasses aside, having no fur- '
tber use fur them. They ate positively the finest
aud most serviceable artificial help to the human
eye with which we. are acquainted, and they are
offered very low. Kear-sigfated persons or thtoe
with weak eyea should try a pair of these specta
cles. Go to Titus Brothers and examine them.':

A Co., Druggists of this city, during the season

Portland. Of course this ain't no feather in our

The Committee to whom was referred the tsiayi
written for the $300 priae offered by the "Board of -Real
Estate Agents' on the "Resources aud Advan
tages of Oregon," reported that of the five essays
submitted to them thnso of Mrs. A. J. Daniway
and Hon. J. Quinn Thornton, respectively, were
in all respects superior to the others, but that these
two were so nearly equal that the Committee were
unable to decide which was absolutely the better,
and therefore recommend that Mrs. Duniway and
the Judfe divido tho $300 between tbem.' This
decision ha been acquiesced in by the pa tics,
and we extend our congratulations to the lady and
gentleman who have proved themselves up to
the mark, not only upon this occasion, but upon
all occasions where ability and grains wcro re
quired. ' - ' .:-"'
