Festive Occasion. On last Sun
at the Fair Ground, there was a
large iimI ,oyous gathering of ladies
nd gentlemen from far and near to
attend the Jewish Picnic, gotten Up
for the espe0i.1l diversion and enter
tainment of the people of that faith by
tlielrHirothcrs ot this city. There are,
probably, no people on earth, as a class,
who take more thorough delight in oc
casion of this kind, or who under
stand the art ot making them more
completely enjoyable. From the re
port of those who were in attendance,
we are led to believe that it wns one
of the pleasantest occasions of the kind
ever held in Oregon. As before re
marked, the attendance was very
large, lint the tables had been provided
with such a liberal hand, that probably
half of the substantial ami dainties
provided for the refreshment of the
guests were left untouched. The two
large tables, running the whole length
of tlie oavilion. were loaded with
everything that could attract the palate
or meet the demands of tlie daintiest
epicure, with no stint of rich and
parkling wines to wash them down.
Peaches, plums, apricots, pears, and
great clusters of luscious grapes, pro
cured from California at heavy ex
pense, filled up every niche and sjt
of unoccupied space in ami about the
table we never saw a richer or more
elegant siglit. Choice music too. lent
Its bewitching spell to chase the fleet
footed hours. It was a rare scene of
pleasant social enjoyment without any
excesses to mar or blacken its bright
ness. Struck it Rich. Some of our peo- j
pie have "struck He" at lest if they j
havn't struck "He" lu the proper ac- i
ivptation of the term, they have struck j
it rich," in mining parlance. And
this Is the how of it: They Invested
In corner lots In Tacoma, W, T. And
that's what's the matter. From a one- j
horse village, Tacoma lias suddenly
sprang into importance as the chiet '
city in Washington Territory and it
Is thought by some at least, that Taco
ma, in a few short years at farthest,
will be the chief city on the Pacific
Coast! Possessing a good harbor on
tlie finest slieet of water in tlie world,
at the terminus of the Northern Pacific j
Railroad, there's nothing to prevent j
lier rapid growth. But what we start- j
ed out to say was, that several of our :
hoys have been made Rotbchllds of by !
their fortunate investment in Tacoma j
lots. Mr. Clement owns four or five
acres of lots, so does Conrad; .las. El- i
kins, too, lias lots in tlie heart of the j
city; our city Treasurer, Geo. F. Set-;
tlemeir, our Postmaster. Raymond,
our lightning manipulator, (ins. j
Wheeler all, all possess title deeds'
to whole or parts of whole we mean
blocks of land in Tacoma. and they
dress accordingly. They snap their
lingers at the cry of "hard times" and
the tightness of the money market.
There is no tightness for them they
are all on the topmost wave of success,
and we are glad of it, because they are
good boys, and good boys deserve
sugar plums. Mr. Conrad values. Ins
raise at C.OOO. which will set him up
in business in good shape. Not a foot
of land do we possess in Tacoma;
therefore we are not on the gush.
Mews. J. Beaid A

of tlie flue warehouse at Tangent have !
made every preparation to receive,

As O'er Tmnx Talk. A minister,
whose name everybody would recog
nize were we to give it. gave us an in
cident the other day. which may be
regarded as a good illustration of the
speed with which things are done in
Oregon. A young gent n Salem was
engaged to a young ifl()y wnoe resj.

Cold, and in the mood growing out of
J such an experience, he addressed a I
i labored letter, to his once loved one, j
1 couching it in terms as tenderly-deter-'
I mined as possible, that her susceptible 1
nature might not receive too severe a
shock, and asked her to release him
from the engagement. In anxiety he I

j ponded breath and dilating eyes lit-.
I reads, in substance, the following: 1 j

j of three children. That Salem young1
i man has been trying to regain his 1
breath ever since.
Theatrical. The entertainment
at the Pacific Opera House on Friday
night of last week, by the Taylor
Family, assisted by Albany amateurs,
was a great treat to our citizens. The
house was well filled, and all unite in
praise ot the success of the entire per
formance. "Betsey Baker" was well
rendered by Uarry Watson as Marma
duke Mouser, Joseph Purdom as
Crummy, Mrs. L. B. Royal as Mrs.
Mouser, and Mrs. Mart. Taylor as
Betsey Baker. The songs were relish
ed by the large audience, especially
Mart. Taylor's, as his were original.
'The Borrowed Sweetheart," the clos
ing piece, we did not hear, but learn
that the characters were all well sus
tained. Mart. Taylor, as Peter Spyke,
being hard to beat, and Mrs. Taylor,
as Gertrude, being unapproachable.
Messrs. Watson, as Capt. Amhersfoot,
L. B. Royal, as Swizel. J. J. Domes, !
as Delve, and Mrs. Royal, as Ernes
tine, were flrstrate in their different
roles. The Association propose to 1
give another entertainment in a week j
or two, due notice of which will be
given in the papers.
A Brick Sewer. At the Council
meeting on Tuesday evening, an ortli-;
nance was introduced and read first ;
time, ordering the construction of a j
sewer, to be walled with brick, down
Broadalbin street, commencing at or 1
near Seventh street. The sewer will
be three feet in diameter, circular in :
form, and will be at least two feet be
low the surface of the ground. It is ;
not the intention of the present. Conn-.
ci! to construct the entire sewer during
tlie present year, as the cost would lie, '
greater than the city could bear at
present; but a portion, say one-half or
one-third, might lie constructed with
out seriously crippling the city's I
finances, leaving the balance to lie !
constructed next season. A better!
system of drainage than lias been here- i
tofore attempted is needed by our city,
and although this sewer will cost a
great deal of money, it will last, and
effect some material good.

probably accidentally, the thief or
thl i ve-, knocked the brass pan off of
the scales, which, falling on to the
counter, made a terrible racket. Idith

rear end of the establishment, for the
! purpose of obtaining some clue to the
J cause of the noise and this was what
thrv founds Tbev found the buck

been effected by digging a hole through
