Incendiarism. It seems from late
developments that we have had lately

law-defying and reckless spirits who

act, either for revenge of fancied
wrongs, or for the purpose of robbery.
On the night ot Tuesday, December,
1st, a dastardly attempt was made to
lire the stable jnst north ot the resi
dence of Dr. Gamble, belonging to
Mr. J. B. Comley. A small wooden
box, market! L. Kline Jfc Co., Albany,
on two sides, had been obtained, care
fully Ailed with old rags and a small
piece of carpet, the whole thoroughly
saturated with coal oil, a short piece
of candle placed down among the rags,
the wick, extending a quarter ot an
inch or such a matter above the sur
rounding rags and within two or three
Inches of the top of the box, the box
then being covered with a piece of
zinc taken from an old washboard, tbe
said zinc having been punched full of
holes. Every care seems to have been
taken to make a complete success of
the undertaking, and 'evidently was
gotten up under the superintendence
of an expert in the business. The
night selected could not have been
better for the success ot an incendiary,
as the wind was blowing a perfect gale
trom the north, and had the fire got
fairly started as intended it should,
about one o'clock that night, that
whole block, and perhaps the greater
portion of the eastern end of the city,
would have been swept away. How
ever, the incendiary had made one
little mistake. He had put woolen
rags, well saturated with coal oil, next
to the candle, so that when it burnt
down low the rags would ignite, com
municating the blaze to the other com
bustibles in the bo:c, then to the box
itself, and then to the building. The
evidences are that the box was placed
in the corner of the building best
adapted to the purpose intended, the
candle lit and the zinc cover placed
over it. The blaze from the candle
smoked the under surface of the zinc,
but went out before burning low
enough to ignite the combustible ma
terial surrounding it, evidently for
want of sufficient draft it was smoth
ereil. As before noted, holes had teen
u ade in the zinc, evidently with a
nail, but not ot sufficient number to
8icure tlie necessary draft and by this
l'.tt'e oversight the eastern end ot the
city was saved from conflagration on
the night of the 1st instant. About
twelve o'clock on the night in question,
a certain party was observed coming
out ol tbe stable; but nothing was
thought of the matter until the r.ext
day, when the box above deseriU-il
was found. If v have in our midst
fiends incarnate who only await the
opportunity to burn and pillage our
city, they cannot be discovered too
soon ; and when discovered they shoutl
bs put under the sml of the valley.
Upper Willamette Improve
ments. Capt. Geo. G. Smith, who
has had charge of the Government
snag-puller during tlie summer and
fall, has submitted his report of the
season's work to Gen. Michler, a por
tion of which is published in the Oreyo
nian. Work was commenced along
the Upper Willamette on the '21st ot
July last, and was not suspended
until the 9th inst. Following is the
report of work done : At Wheatland
9 snags were removed ; Fairfield, 12 ;
Gates' Bar, 6 ; Jackson's warehouse,
4; Five Islands, 3 ; Carey's Bend, 1 ;
Davidson's Landing, 3 ; Chauipoeg, 1.
At Rock Island, tour buoys were
placed along to mark the channel;
the top of a large rock, 30x40 feet, was
blasted off, laving three feet of water
on it. A rock in the channel at what
is known as Tualatin Bock, six feet
across, was artially blasted out, leav
ing four feet of water on it. The cap
stan at the same point was also re
paired. Ash Island was the next
point, at which place 40 snags were
taken out; mouth of the Yamhill
river, 3 snags ; Carey's Bend, 20 ob
structions removed ; Weston, 16 ;
Christman's Bar, 20; mouth of the
Willamette, 38 stumps and logs torn
out ; opposite the O. S. N. Go's
wharf, a large snag ; Fisher's Eddy,
2. Total obstructions removed during
the season, 288. Capt. Smith is a
competent and faithful officer, and al
though there remains a great amount
of work still to do, that which was
undertaken was well done, very ma
terially improving the channel of the
tapper Willamette, and largely decreas
ing the dangers ot navigation. Conld
the appropriation for the work be in
creased sufficiently to enable the em
ployment of steam, instead of, as now,
handpower, in propelling the snag
puller, and in operating the tackle
used in pulling obstructions from the
channel of the river, one season's work
would clear the channel ot every ob
struction from Corvallis to the falls.

BUTTEHTUSH, OLD EPUHA1M AND TI1E
APOSTLE PAUL ON THE RAMPAGE A
BOLD CONSTABLE TIMELY APPEARS
AND SAVES THE SPlLLINCr OF OCEANS
OF B-LCD, AND PREVENTS A SUCCESS
FUL FUNERAL, PERHAPS !
Ed. Register: Almost another
tragedy at the Providence Schoolhouse
on last Monday (Dec. 7 ?). The prin
cipal actors were three old gentlemen,
well known in this community, named
Buttcrtush, Old Ephraim and the
Apostle Paul not the apostle of old,
but of more recent date.
The details are about as follows:
Young Crabtree's school commenced j
on that day, and the above-named par
ties, as usual, were on hand. Tlie j
fidit opened. One wird brought on
another, and Ephraim waxed warmer ,
and wainicr. Finally Ephraim pro- j
posed to "go through'' Buttertush any ,
how. Buttertush thereupon went for !
his knife, for the commendable pur- i
pose, I suppose, of cutting Ephraim j
out. if he should unfortunately meet !
with serious impediment in "going j
through.'' But Providence is always
on the side of the Forks. A constable, j
farmiiiarly known as Tinker Jim. made
'his appearance just in the nick o' time,
and commanded the peace ; and the
tone was so Christian-like and bland,
that the parties wilted.
But the blood of Buttertush was up,
and his wrath not yet appeased : and
noting the Apostle Paul, who during
the melee had. stood afar oft", like the
apostle of old before his conversion,
persecuting the christians, he attacked ;
him saying: "Paul. Paul, why perse- j
cutest thou me?" And Paul answered j
and said. "Who art thou " And he !
answered him saying, "I am Butter- !
tush, whom thou persecutest." But
Tinker .lim was on hand and provitl
himself equal to the oceasioi . He
threw himself between thecombattatds,
telling them that although the 1 are
footed Just'cj -had. lelt the country on
account of rang slandered, through the
newspapers, "I am h-c-e-re. " and
that he didn't fear God or man, and
this thing had to stop. And it did
stop there and then. But Butteilush
had become fearfully worked up. and
in his excitement he imagined he was
in church, and being a class-leader,
and wishing to wind up the affair
probably in true orthodox style, he
nervously exclaimed : "Let us sing,
'Praise God from whom all blessings
At last accounts Tinker Jim as on
the ground, and swears he will t:y
there until the school is out, unless the
sweet boon of peace Is guaranteed !
I am still a
Friend to the Forks.
Elegant Reception. Mr. and
Mrs. J. L. Harris gave an elegant
reception at their residence on Second
street, on Wednesday evening. A
large number of ladies and gentlemen
called to congratulate the newly
wedded pair, and the Albany Brass
Band lent an additional charm to the
occasion by tendering a complimen
tary serenade. The doors of the man
sion were thrown open, and amid
sweet 'music's voluptuous swell," the
popping of champagne corks, drinking
of toasts, and the hearty eongrntula

and prosperity of the worthy and
