Akm Broken. Little Charley Brig
ham. eHpt -son of Mart, Brigham. on
Monday met with mi accident which
will deprive Mm of tlie use of his left
arm for some d iv. From what we
can learn, he w is engaged in playing
game of hall at school, :ind whi'e run
ning: fell, the wtiiile weight of the hody
being thrown upon the lftarru. break
ing it between (he wrist and elbow, in
about the same place it was broken
6ome two months ago. wltegi be fell
from the water tank near foot of Wash
ington street. The arm had entirely
recovered, and he had been using it
for near a month; hut the strain upon
it Monday was too great, and it
snaped in twain once more. Dr.
3amble reset and bandaged the arm,
and has hopes of its early recovery.
Larcie Receipts. Last Friday
Messrs. Moms & Parker received one
hundred and eight wagon loads of
Wheat about 7.000 bushels. On the
same fray tha Farmers' Warehouse,
just opposite Morris & Parker's fine
warehouse, received one hundered ami
twelve wagon loads a total of 220
wagon loads, 25 of which were four
horse. If the other seven wheat de
positories in the city done as well on
that day, between 50,000 and 60,000
bushels of wheat were received and
stored here on that dar. Morris &
Parker have over 60.000 busliels of
wheat in store, several thousand
bushels of dats, and the stream of wag
ons still continues, unloading the yel
low gram at their doors.
Crockery, Lamps, Etc. Mr. Wm.
C Tweedaie. at his establishment next
door west of this office, the first of the
week received an invoice of crockery
ware, glassware, etc., that deserve the
attention of the ladies. Among the
lot is some of the prettiest tea sets im
aginable, perfect beauties, that are
bound to go like hot cakes ; a fine lot
of glassware, new styles ; the neatest
style of syrup jog that we have seen ;
a new style df parlor lamp that ia
specially handsome and convenient.
But then to be appreciated they must
be seen. Call at Billy's, and examine
Fike at Lebanon. Between one
and two o'clock on Sunday morning,
September 13th. a fire was discovered
in Mr. Luther Elkins dry goods store
in Lebanon. The fire had made such
headway before it was discovered, and j
burned with such fierce rapidity, that
but little was saved from the building.
The dwelling adjoining, occupied by
Mr. P. Fan-ell, who had charge of the
store, soon caught fire, and although
through the efforts of citizens most ot
the furniture, etc., was saved, the
building was burned to the ground.
The Post Office, S. H. Clanghton,
Postmaster, was kept in the store
building, and was entirely destroyed ;
papers, letters, books, stamps, etc..
all were burned up, causing a loos to
the Postal Department of some $) 50
or $200, while Mr. Clanghton loses as
much more. The store-room contained
goods to the amount of $6,000 or
$7,000. probably not over $100 worth
of which was saved. There was an
insurance on the store building of
$S00; on the goods. $4,000, and on
the dwelling. $1,200. as we are in
formed a total of $6,000. The prob
able loss, overai.d above the insurance,
will not be oer $3,000.
Inviting Goods. Sam E. Young
gives notice that he is receiving and
now opening one of the largest and
best selected stocks of goods ever bro't
to Albany. Having had eight years'
experience in purchasing and selling
good in (hi market, he is certainly
qualified to purchase saleable good at
their very lowest cash value, which
enables him to sell them at lower rates
and smaller profits than ever before.
Persons wishing to buy good of most
any kind, will find it to their advant
age to call on him and get his price
liefore purchasing their Fall and Winter
Ship Yard A New Steamboat.
The grounds just below the Magnolia
mills, on the east side of the Calipooia

the timber is now on the ground, and
next week Capt. Smith will commence
tlie erection of a steam loat for Mr.
Newhouse. of this city. The new boat
will be fo irteen feet wide by seventy
feet long. The engines formerly ued
in the Farmers' Warehouse have been
secured, anil will be put into the new
steamboat. Mr. N. will use her in
conveying lumber from his mill at
Corvallis to this citv.
Speendid Woolen Goods. Mr.
W. K. Kirk, of Brownsville, called
on Tuesday, bringing with him speci
mens of the goods manufactured by the
Brownsville Woolen Mills. We ac
knowledge that we were really sur
prised at the excellence, both in qual
ity and finish of the various goods ex
hibited. The doeskins, cassimers,
hardtimes, and numerous other brands
of cloth, as well as flannels of various
qualities and styles, give evidence of
superior workmanship and excellence.
Ot course such goods are bound to take
with a discriminating public, and the
goods manufactured by the Browns
ville Woolen Mills will commard rapid
sale as soon as the public are made
acquainted with their excellence.
Sheep H upbandry. As an Indica
tion of the value of this industry,' we
cite a case : A gentleman of onr ac
quaintance expended 1213 in the
purchase of sbeep. He kept the sheep
seventeen months, when he sold them,
realizing $496 over and above their
first cost and all expenses, besides the
benefits to 'the Jand they grazed on,
through receiving their droppings.
Dr. Alexander took Wednesdays'

Society have ordered a ditch dug from
the Santiam Canal to the Fair grounds,
so as to afford plenty of water for No.
One's steam fire engine of Portland,
which will visit our boys during the

Completed. On Wednesday we
inspected the new ferryboat, built by
Capt. S. R. Smith for Mr. Pierce.
The finishing touches were being put
on, and the Captain informed os he
intended to launch her the next day
yesterday. It i.s a staunch, well built
cratt, 16x62 feet, and is certaiuly a
credit to the builder.
Notice. The Linn County Council
of the Patrons of Husbandry will meet
on Tuesday, the 6lh day of October,
in the city ot Albany. A full attend
ance is desired, as business of impor
tance will have to be transacted.
