' Watch Presentation at Lebanon
Id. Riwister : On the 24th of
December last, the congregation of the
Cumberland rresbyteriatj Church
selected a committee of ladles, consist
ing ot Mesdames J. llnuk and IV. S.
Elkins, to solicit lunds for the purpose
of purchasing their pastor, Itev. C. A.
Wooley, a watch, in which they were
most successful, in a few hours obtain
ing a sufficient sum for the purpose.
On Sunday, the 21st instat.t, the
Chairman of the committee, Mrs. J.
Honk, publiel' presented Rev. Mr.
W ooley the watch which had been
purchased for the occasion, a most
elegant time-piece, with the following
brie but pleasant address, which was
delivered extenipoi-e and, with but a
few minutes reflection :
'Rev. C. A. Woolet : In behalf
of the Church and t lie citizens of Lb-'
anon audf vicinity, I have the pleasure
of presenting you this watch as a tes
timonial of our gratitude lor your
ministerial labors among us, and we
trust you will receive it as a memento
ot our esteem. And when the hands
upon the dial indicate the sinking of
the sun in tl-e western horizon, may
your heart be lifted up in prayer for
the many warm friends of Lebanon,
whose eun is rapidly approaching the
eve ot life, and ask that in that Great
Day for which all other days were
made, they may be resurrected in glory
and honor, where suns shall rise and
set no more forever." . ? s
Gone to Wokk A Suggestion.-
Capt. Geo. G. Smith of the Governi
ment suagboat, called last Saturday;
Tlie snagboat is now at work sotm
distance above the city clearing tbf
river of snags and other iin pediments
to navigation. During last seasot,
under the direction of Capt. Suiitli
a large amount of substantial work
was accomplished on the Willamette
between Oregon City and Cor vail if,
no less than two hundred aud eighty
snags being removed, among them tlie
'Big Pine" at Luekiamute, and others
almost as large, all of them more or
less serious impediments to the naviga
tion of the Upper Willamette. If an
appropriation couiu be secured en-
nabling Capt. Smith to purchase an
engine for the boat, more than thribble
the amount of work could be done each
season, as the "power'.' could be trans
ferred to the capstan, when not in use
propelling the boat" from point to
point, and used in 'pulling out snags.
At present all the work is done by
-hand-power, which 13 iaborous as well
as s-low and tedious. As there seems
to be no probability of obtaining an
increased appropriation from the Gen
eral Government for the improvement
of our river, it might be. well enough
for our Granger ! friends to look into
the matter. If we are correctly in.
formed, about $6,000 were secured on
subscription last season lor the im
provement of the Willamette. It is
possible that if a portion of this money
could be used iu placing the snagboat
iu a condition not only to help itself,
renuering it capable ot moving up or
dowu the river without the aid of
another boat, but increasing its useful
ncss generally,; and the balance appro
priated to putting in wing-dams where
needed, more good would result than
ia any other way. A small amountof
money, comparatively, we are assured,
placed in proper hands where It would
be honestly and intelligently expended
during the coming season, will secure
the much wished for result render
the Willamette river to this point at
least navigable during the entire year.
r To Stock Kaisers. The noted
thoroughbred Devonshire bull. Victor
Second, is now owned by the Messrs.
II. B. and T- B. Sprenger, and can
be eeen at their farm, two miles north
of Sliedd Station, during the season.
This is said to be one. of the purest
blooded animals ever , brought to the
State, and on the two occasions when
exhibited at the State Fair took the
first premium!' It costs no more to
raise good stock than it does to raise
interior; but the' difference in price
between tlie thoroughbread and com
mon stock is at once appreciated either
by the party selling or the one purchas
ing the thoroughbred article. Believ
ing it to be to the best interests of
stock raisers to get the best, we refer
them to Messrs Sprenger. See ad.
