Lectures. Rev. Mr. Condon. State
Geologist, concluded a very interesting
course of lectures on geology Monday
evening, at the Congregational Urareti.
Good audiences were in attendance
during the course. From the general
remarks of those in attendance, we
judge that our people were well repaid
for their attendance. Mr. Condon is
an easy, graceful speaker, and has tlie
knack of gaining and retaining the at
tention of his audience from the lie
ginning to the end of his lecture. Mr.
C. went from here to Corvallis, where
he will deliver his course of 'lectures.
Wespeak for him full houses.

Ijist week we pnbllshetl aresolniion
adopted by the Business Council.of the
Patrons of Husbandry, In session In
this cttv on Tuesday, the 10th inst..
recommending to tle different Granges
throughout tlie State not to purchase
any plows or otlier agricultural imple
ments manufactured In tlie State of
Illinois, because said manufacturers
had combined and resolved not to sell
to Farmer's Granges, etc., at less than
retail Drices. Our Granger seem to
understand the business in hand thor
oughly, and are determined to com
mence at the fomita in-head in the cor
rection of evils that lwve borne so
heavily upon tlie prosperity of Oregon
Tlwv are determined to stop the con
stant drain ot money to the East in the
purchase of agricultural implements,
and jiatronize equally meritorious
manufactures and manufacturers in
our own State, thus retaining the
money at home. Hundreds of thou
sands ot dollars have been annually
sent out of the country to purchase im
plements for farm use. when equally
as good an article might have leen ob
tained at home, had proper induce
ments been offered First class agri
cultural implements, machinery ot all
kinds, of the best and most approved
patterns, wagons, etc, can be made
right lit re in Albany, and first class
mechanics stai.d ready to go Into their
manufacture whenever the farmers
give any indication that they will give
them their patronage and suport.
All Right. The creditors of C. B.
rnmstoek Co.. the great grain deal
er of Portland, undertook to Infinite j
oiirlellowcitiren, Mr. W. S. Newbury.
In the bankruptcy proceedings recently
instituted agains' the firm, alleging
that Mr. Newbury was a member of
the firm. After a thorough and search
ing examination, by experts specially
entrusted with the business, of the
hooks, twiners, etc.. of Mr. Newbury.
and discovering not a particle ot evi
dence of any partnership ever having
existed between Mr. Newbury and C.
B. Comstock & Co., the proceedings
in bankruptcy, as against Mr. New-
. t,oa.ita withdrawn. This
is proof positive. Ifanyhadbeen want
ing, that Mr. N has been acting ill
good faith, in his business representa
tion, with our people. Although act
ing as the agent of C. B. Comstock &
Co.,-in the purchase and shipment of
grain, no shipment of grain was made
to Comstock & Co. until tlie grain had
been purchased and the purchase
money paid therefor, or remaining in
his hands to lie so disbursed. We be
lieve no man has ever lost a cent prom
ised him in any transaction with Mr.
N.; but that in all his dealings, while,
ot course, looking out for his own in
terests, as of all ot us do. he has also
endeavored to do tlie fair and honor
able by all his customers. As a conse
quence, no man stands higher in the
confidence of our people than IV. S.
HOT Ashes Again. Almut twelve
o'clock on Satunlay night last, some
one going Into tlie Exchange Hotel In
this City, observed a bright Jlght in
the rear portion of tlie building, and
called the attention of the landlord to
the fact. Upon P0,ne ,0 ,,,e vhve
indicted, a verv nice little fire was
discovered, which had just falrlyrot
under wav. and had not the discovery
been made ut In the nk of time,
tlie hotel would soon have been all
a-blaze. and have received serious
damage If not entirely destroyed. The
cause of the fire was the same old story
-some one had thrown hot ashes
among the debris in the hack yard.
The last fire in this city, it will be
remembered, was caused by placing
hot ashes in a wooden box : the ashes
set fire to the box. and a fine building
was seriously damaged. Isn't it about
time that people bad learned that de
positing hot ashes In barrels or wooden
lioxe, or throwing them among dry
chips, straw, or otlier light material,
is a very unsafe as well as unprofi
table mode of disposing of them? To
say the least, this manner of dispos
ing of hot ashes is very careless, and
i a ,.wi.i- n verv reckless dis-
position or great want of judgment-
Albany, like the majority ot the cities
and towns In Oregon, is built up
principally of woollen buildings, and
during the Summer esjieclally it
would be a very easy matter to kindle
a fire that it would he almost im
possible to subdue until a great por
tion of the ctty was destroyed. It
certainly is then tbe part of wisdom to
be verv cautions where you place your
hot, ashes, or even where yon throw
the part'r smoked cigar. A little
caution and care may save vou and
your neighbors much trouble and loss.
Novelties.-W. H. McFarland has
a full line of stoves and ranges, among
which may be mentioned that chief
among ranges, the Richmond, and a
vast numlier of useful and ornamental
articles for the kitchen and dining
room. The number and variety of the
goods offered by him is not excelled,
we think, by any house in rlie valley,
nnil his nriecs are very fair indeed.
...... ... ,--
As he is expecting the arrival of a large
invoice of new goods from the Eat in
a few days,he requests us to say that
for the next sixty days stove, pumps,
etc.. will be sold regardless of cost. If

The large shipments of Wheat last

with the lateness of the season, have
