Large Time at Lebanon. The
citizens ot Lebanon had a grand time
Christmas eve. Two large trees were
erected in the auditorium of the Sa
tiam Academy, on tlie branches of
which were lmng one thousand pres
ents, valued at $1,200. Through the
exertions of ilrs. W. S. Elkins and
Mrs. J. Jlouck. a sum of money was
raised, with which an elegant watch
was purchased and hung on one of the
trees, as a present to Kev. C. A.
Wortltyl pastor ot the C. P. Church
of Lebanon. A good choir was In at
tendance, and, aided by the Lebanon
Brass Band, which also kindly volun
teered its services, furnished the best
of music. The room was crowded to
iwutmost'eapacity, and the audience
were treated to declamations, re cita
tions, etc., by ladles and gentleman of
tbe village. C. B. Montague, Esq..
wag especially happy in his recitation,
and brought down the house in a
whirlpool of applause. Among the
presents on the Christmas trees, was a
splendid silver horn, presented by the
Lebanon Brass Band to Prot. A.
Com p ton, as a testimonial of the high
regard and esteem in which he is held
by the members of the Band, of which
he is leader. A gorgeous tin horn,
capable of holding "the full of a halt
bushel," was placed upon one of the
trees, labeled to J. L. Cowen, leader
of the "Hoodlum Band," and was a
present to be proud of in after years.
Tiie entertainment and distribution at
gifts was not concluded till near mid
night, and was wound np by a grand
"shake np." by the "Hoodlum Band,"
composed of J. L. Cowen. Esq.,
leader, Dr. Ballard, J. TV. Bell, J.
TV. Giimore, and others. The per
formance given by this band of artists
was unique and unapproachable,
eclipsing anything ever before offered
in Lebanon, and was greeted by a
perfect hurricane of cheers and ap
plause. It was a memorable night iu
the history of Lebanon, and will not
be forgotten for many long years to
come ; but the incidents of that night
will be reitearsed around the fireside
with pleasure, and the festive actors
kindly spoken of long after they have
passed into the Better Land. '
Vick's Floral Gcide .For Janu
ary, 1875, is a magnillcent number,
and as a specimen of typography can
hardly be excelled. It i iued quar
terly, . by James Vick. Esq., of -Ro-iliestw.
V. V.. at tlie low rrlr eif
25c per annum. The number before
us contains over 100 pages, 500 en
gravings, and descriptions of more
than 500 of our best flowers and vege
tables, with directions for culture. Sc.
-tlie most useful and elegant work ot
the kind in the world. Mr. Vick
authorizes the officers of every ngri
inltural society in the United States
and the Provinces ot Canada, to offer
from him the following premiums :
For the best collection of cut llowers.
f 20 ; second best, $ 10 ; third best, 5 ;
F fourth best, a floral chromo. He also
proposes to receive and forward sub
scriptions in aid ol the starving people
of Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota and
Iowa, and to tidd, out of his own ex
chequer, $500 to the donations; and
with returning' spring, when the suf
ferers by famine in those States will
need seeds and grain, to give $500 more
in such seeds and grain as may be most
needed by them. This is liberal, and
shows Vick to be the possessor of a
warm heart that feels for tbe woes of
his fellow men.

Sunday School Union will hold its

Baptist Church of this city, on next
Monday evening, January 4th, 1875,

Hurt. A little six-year old
daughter of Mrs TVorth, who resides
a sliort distance from Halsey, on Sat
urday last was struck by the hind foot
oa horse, in the forehead, and severe
ly injured. It seems the horse was
running, and the little girl being in
tbe way, the animal attempted to
jump over her. but struck her in pass
ing with one of his hind feet. It was
at first feared Uiat tbe hurt .would
prove fatal to the little girl, but after
careful examination and due attention
to the wound, on Tuesday she was
pronounced out of danger.
The Masonic Installation Last
Saturday night, closed with a collation
and dance, which was participated in
by a large number of the fraternity
andtiieir friends. Upon the invita
tion of Mr. Biles, Agent O. S. S. Co.,
a number ot those 'present went on
board the steamer. E. iV. Cooke, the
next morning, and excurshed to Cor
vallis, returning in the evening of the
same day. The excursion was thor
oughly enjoyed by the participants.
A Teacher in Trouble On Mon
day last, as related to us. at Rock Hill
School-noiise. orl the road between
Lebanon and Brownsville, occurred a
difficulty between the teacher, Don
Byland, and one of his pupils, aged
about eighteen, named Fj-ank Richard
son, in which the pupil seems to have
got the worst of It. The pupil was
unruly, and after the teacher had ex
hausted his patience In attempting to
make the pupil comply with the rnles
of the school in vain, he ordered him
to leave the school-room. This tiie
refractory young man flatly refused to
do. but upon the teacher's approach,
seized a stick and menaced the teacher
therewith. There and then ensued a
tussle, In which the teacher succeeded
In getting possession of the stick, and,
knocking the obstreperous youth down
with it,' drew him out of the house Into
the wood-shed and left him. Shortly
after, the young man came to tlte
school-house door and begged to come
in, saying he was sick. The teacher
told him to come in ; and after sitting
by the stove for awhile, and getting
worse, l.e was conveyed to his home,
and at last accounts he was thought to
be dangerously sick. Byland was ar
rested and bound over in $500 to an
swer. We give the facts as they
were related to us, without any color
ing whatever, as we do not wish to
prejudice the matter either way.
"The Massacre of Glencoe."
Calvin B. McDonald, Esq., editor of
the Salem Statesman, has been secured
by the LndieV Benevolent Society of
this city, to deliver his famous lecture,
entitled as above. He has recently
delivered this lecture to large and ap
preciative audiences in Salem and
Portland, snti press and people nnite
in pronouncing it a masterpiece of.
eloquence. The Society is fortunate
indeed in having secured this talented
gentleman. The lecture will be de
livered at the Court House, on New
Years' evening. The admission fee
will be 50c. The county autliorities
have generously consented to the nse
of the Court House for the purpose, as
the proceeds of the lecture are to be
given to the Ladies' Benevolent So
ciety, and will be expended in alleviat
ing distress. As no one will care to
miss hearing this master production of
a literary genius, the Court Honse
will doubtless be crowded with citizens,
and a large sum will thus be seenred
for tlie poor and needy.

The other morning as TV. II. Dodd

For the Interest of all Parties;
There can now be no doubt of the
wisdom of the course pursued by Gov
ernor Bramlette, with reference to the
last Grand Gift Concert of the Ken

sale of every ticket, which will be
more satisfactory to every ticket-
holder, and more for the Interest of

doubt of its coming off this time, the
Governor proposes to return every
ticket-holder's money in case of fail
ure. i Masonic The following named

eve, where a Christmas tree had been
