name as long as a flag-pole, w ho has
made the economy of man the subject
of a life's stndy and research, gives
the following as the result of hi inves
tigations and calculations so tar as he
has got. lie says;

remark: A great many things go Juto
the mouth! (Tlu is a scientific fact
that none dare dispute, therefore we
claim a patent on it.) Aside from the
originality of the remark, it is certain
ly an alarming fact. Just think of it

little, male and female, drink, in the
short space of one year, enough leath

To Pkeskkve Fence-Posts. The
following Is a French receipt for pre
serving fence-posts from becoming
rotten after they are Imbedded in the
earth. It is said to be especially good
in low. flat groMuds, along swails, etc.
This is the process : Take linseed oil,
boil it aud mix it with charcoal dust
until the mixture is like ordinary
paint. Give the posts a single coat of
tlie paint or mixture before putting
them in the ground, and noarmer, it
is averred, will live long enough to
see them rotten. Wood is thus ren
dered more durable than iron Itself.
The discoverer of the process, says that
posts of soft wood, removed after re
main" in the ground seven years, were
found as sound as when first put into
the ground. The only precaution nec
essary is to see that the posts are well
dried, before covering them with filar
lie . Miri-ail's fiute.
The follov iug letter, written to the
Bulletin, speaks for itself:
Hi i LSBoHO, October 25.
Editors Bulletin: When in town
to-day I got a Copy of the State Rights
Ikni'icntty piibii-hed at Albany by Mr.
Martin Van Buren Brown, formerly
of Iowa. Out of one of its columns I
cut the small extract pinned to this,
which appears to have come from the
"Mrs. Surratt was hanged amid a
howl of exultation, in which nobody
howled louder than Holt, Bingham,
Speed, Stanton. Howard, and the rest
of the clique which ruled in Washing
' ton at that time. But every man of
tlxmi has been trying to wriggle out of
his share of infamy ever since."
I may be misinformed as to whether
tlie Mr. Brown who has the Democrat
is the same person 1 used to know, but
I have strong reason to believe he is.
During ttu. rebellion he was a niteer
in the Union Army. I dUti ly re
member hearing him vehemeiiily curse
'Old Mother Damnable," as it was
the fashion then to call Mrs. Snrralt,
and saying that she deserved hanging
as' bad as any of the assassins of our
great lamented Lincoln. I have not
changed my ideas of it, but if this is
the same Mr. Brown, he appears to
have changed his very much since then.
If the rest who then condemned her
have got to wriggle in infamy on that
account, I don't See how he CUU expect
to escape. Oblige mo by publishing

story that President Grant had a largii

AI.MA.M- AND KAXTIAM CANAL.
The Albany and Santiam Canal
Company would respectfully call ihe
attention of Ha) pulilie, and especially
the Capitalist, and those desiring to
engage iu manufacturing, to their
gigantic water power and water priv
ilege. Sixteen thousand cubic feet
constantly flowingevery minute, equal
to 800 horse power. With from 8 to 30
feet fall, sufficient for the most exn
give machinery, with ground on w hich
to erect the neces-ary buildings, etc.
The Company deem it but proper: hat
the public should know more fully the
locality of this great water power. l
facilities and surroundings, in order
that those unacfiiillhttetf may form
some estimate of its value.
The city of Albany Is the county-seat
of Linn county, located on the south
east bank of the Willamette river,
about 100 miles south of Portland, by
river, and 8t) miles by railroad; sixt'li
of Salem 45 miles by rivt rand 30 miles
by railroad, aud north o: Eugene City
Albany is located iu a prairie of the
same name, which is the great agricul
tural center ot the illaiuette alley,

The most of it will find its ly to for

road to Portland, aud from thence ti
on the ocean. The Willamette rivet
is navigated by beautiful steamers,
carrying from SO to 300 tons, running
as far as Albany some ten months iu
the year. Also, the O. & G. It. It ,
with its beautiful locomotives, is pass

ot Albluty is located upon a high, roll

river on the west. theVater of Which

inills, situated on the bank of the Wil
lamette river. The city is about one
mile in length, running east and west,
and from one-half to three-fourths
of a mile in w idth, and is laid oil' w ith
streets of good width.
The Canal, which is the subject and
ol.ject of this communication, receives
its waters from the boulli Santiam
river, which heads in the great Cascade
mountains, some 75 miles cast of
Albany; thence running westerly
through a valley of the same name, to
Lebanon, a village located near the
west l ink of said river, 13 miles east
of Albany. The Canal receives the
water: from the Santiam river at that
point, thence I'miring west to its ter
minus at Albany. The main Santiam
flows northward, and empties its
mountain waters Into the Willamette
river 10 miles northeast of Albany.
The Canal is brought from Lebanon
through a beautiful prairie for a dis
tance of 12 miles, and empties into the
Willamette river, forming on its way
and in the cily sonic of the finest water
powc rs for manufacturing purposes
found on the Pacific coast. There are
but few, if any, points in the State
