Sol. Kuhn, a resident of Eugene,
and dealer in fancy goods and tobacco,
committed suicide 6y cutting his throat
Thursday night of last week. He was
evidently crazy.
The last Legislature, in the way of
per diem and mileage of members,
clerks, and other incidental expenses,
cost the taxpayers, about $10,000 more
than any previous meeting of that

nevertheless. 1 Ee is chief owner of the
Iiicago Trilmne.
The late Oregon Legislature will lie
remembered as the most extravagant
and utterly reckless in its printing bills,
ordering work done that was of no
earthly use or interest to the general
taxpayer or any one else. A saving of
thousands of dollars might have been
effected in this matter, without preju
dicing the interests of anyone.

The PHwknee Indians have agreed
to remove from their reservation in
Eastern Nebraska to one selected for
them in the Indian Territory. The
reservation covers an area of nearly
500 square miles, and is first class land.
It will be put upon the market and
sold for the benefit of the Pawknees.
Judge J. N. Dolph has commenced
suit against W. II. Watkinds for libel,
laying his damages at S10,()00. The
alleged libel is the statement of Wat
kinds, in his answer to the report of
the Penitentiary Investigating Com
mittee, charging the firm of Mitchell
& Dolph with receiving money for
putting a certain measure through the
State Senate in 1872, While Dolph was
a member of that bod v.
A measure was introduced in the

The pas-age of this bill would j
have been a true measure of retrench
ment, reducing the expense of the
next Legislature several thousand dol
lars. The representation in 1872 was
large enough, and if that representation
were sun iurtner reauceu it wotuu not
only be a saving of thousands of dollars
to the State treasury, but doubtless be
productive of better legislation. "Too
many cooks spoil the broth," is as true
ol law-making as of cooking.
Once more the question ot removal
of the National Capitol further west
has been revived. Chicago and St.
Louis each claims the proud position
of "the metropolis of the West, "and
each aspires to be the National Capitol
for the future. The removal of the
Capitol, the Patent Office, the Smith
sonian Institute and other great na
tionsl institutions nt Washington to
either ot these ambitious Western cities
would certainly involve a large amount
of trouble aud expense it appears to
us a larger amount than ought to be
incurred, ilnview of the limited pros
pective advantages that would result
from the transfer.

Bathurst (New Brunswick) special
says: Oliver Gal lion was yesterday
executed for killing Xavier Paulin.
The murdered man was a leper, and a
priest had ordered a practical divorce
between him and his wife. Illicit re

Large amounts of wheat, stored by
Carpers in the different warehouses
alo3r the line of the O. & C. Railroad,
no! a bushel of which has been sold by
tht farmers, we are informed, has
beui shipped to Portland by the ware
housemen. It is said that some of the
v:rehoues have shipped every bushel
sbred with them. Suppose, the above
statement being true, farmers who
sttred wheat in some of these now
empty warehouses, should demand
tbtir wheat ! It might worry the boys
tothrow in in sight. We understand
tlat prominent grain dealers in Port
laid have boasted that they can get
al the wheat they want without pay
ing out a dollar. The party iu Port
laid who wishes to secure a certain
anount of grain with which to load a
vGsel. simply sends to one or more
warehouses in the interior, and bur
roes the amount. Attempts were
undo during the season to borrow from
tie warehouses in this city, but it
filed not a bushel could lie obtained
oi such a layout. We are assured that
mt a bushel of grain lias been shipped
tcm this city that had not been bought
aid paid for before it was loaded on
ti the cars or boats. Therefore if any
vronjr has been done, the skirts of our
vtarehouscmen and millers are clear.
It is conceded that the Democrats
vill have a lare majority in the next j
Hou-e of 'ongrcss. Democrats claim

forking majority, to be sure. At all I
events the subject, ol the Speaker-hip is .
X'ceiving attention, and the chances
or promotion of the different a-pir-aits
canvassed. General Banks, Fer
lando Wood, S. S. Cox and cx-tJov. !
iValker, are the mo-t prominent.
While it is understood that the ma-
ioritv would nrefer a straight out I em-
om as se.iker. vet it is thousht that
a compromise may be made whereby
1 lemocrats and Conservatives can unite
on Gen. Banks, and place him in the

A Columbia clergyman, who. while
preaching a sermon on Sunday evening
perceived a man and woman under
the gallery m the act of kissing each
other behind a hymnbook, did not lose
his temper. No! he remained calm.
He beamed mildly at the ollenders ov
er his spectacles, and when the young
man kissed her the fifteenth time, he
merely broke his sermon short off in
the middle ot "thirdly," and offered a
fervent prayer in behalf of "the youne

who were profaning the sanctuary by

ivilizations perish, empires decay,
old powers decline and pass away,
while new ones arise and push them
selves to the front. Greece, once the
foremost power of the world in tu ts
and arms and civilization, i- of no ac
count at all iu the computation of liv
ing forces. Greece is "living Greece
no more." and Rome, once the mistress
of the world, is but a memory and a
name. When Home was in her glory,
Britain was inhabited by uncouth sav
ages, without a literature or the first
elements ot civilization. Egypt has for
centuries been a power of no political
significance, but she is now furnishing
indications that she possesses inherent
recuperative forces, and that she has a
future before her. Mehemkt A LI, an
able and sagacious ruler, was the first
to introduce European and American
ideas into the country. By the aid of
roving and adventurous spirits from
the Lnited States and the continent of
Europe, he armed and disciplined a
large native force in the European
manner and created a very respectable
navy. Manufactures were introduced
and fostered ; commerce was revived,
and Alexandria became once more a
port of considerable consequence. Had
it not been for the intervention of the
European Powers it is probable that
Me heme t Ali. after his successes aganst
Turkey in Syria aud Asia Minor,
would actually have made himself mas
ter of Constantinople and placed Egypt
in the tanks of the great powers of the
world. The present Khedive inherits a
hu ge share of the genius and audacity
of iiis illustrious predecessor. He lias
manifested a strong disposition to en
list foreign talent to aid him in the de
velopment of the resources of the coun
try and the organization of bis army
and navy. In calling iu this sort of
assistance he seems to have been influ
enced by a very decided partiality for
Americans. General stone, who fig
ured somewhat prominently in the
eat Iter years of the civil war. occupies
a high position under the present (gov
ernment, and Sparrow Prndy of this
city, the son of ex-I.eitit.- 'ovcrnor
Prudy, is an especial favorite at the
court of the Khedive. Under the in
spiration of his American advisers, the
Khedive has become an eminently pro
gressive ruler. The Upper Egypt rail
way runs without interruption down
the bank otthe Nile, with another line
from Cairo to Alexandria. Moreover,
this Egyptian ruler is entitled to the
credit of having constructed the finest
sugar mills iu the world. Agricultural
railways are also being built to facili
tate the transportation of cane to the
mills, and numerous other undertak
ings inspired by the spirit of modern
thought anil modern progress, are un
der consideration. Upon the whole,
the present Khedive is manifesting a
spirit which promises to bring the an
cient country of the Pharaoh's and the
Ptolemies into the ranks of the leading
civilized powers ot modern times. &.
