where it is most needed and where it will
accomplish the most good. We are among
those who believe the appropriation ia
lifrge enough, il bonestlv and judiciously
expended, to affect the desired end- to-
wit : improving the channel of the Wil
lamette so as to render its navigation
possible during the entire Tear, from Its
mouth to Eugene City, for light draught
boats. If practical men, men who are
thoroughly acquainted with the liver, and
are interested lit iu iiaprotement, can have
the work committed to their care, then the
a moan t appropriated, together with what
has been subscribed by the farmers ot this
valley, will accomplish the much needed
improvement. Petitions are In circulation.
largely signed, asking Gen. Micbler to
appropriate a reasonable- portion of the
money to the improvement of the Wil
lamette from Salem to Eugene, -and
especially from Albany to Eugene, and
not expend all the money between Port
land and Salem. We hope the General
will see the justness of the claim, and
grant the request of petitioners. And if be
wishes to consult the further wishes ot ear
people, be will employ a practical river
man and there are a number of practical
men now plying the river, who know every
crook and beiid and rapids in it, from the
falls to its bead who are thoroughly alive
to the interests at stake, and who can tell,
without awaiting slow and tedious surveys.
jut where and what kind of improvements
are necessary to make navigation practica
ble the year round on the Upper Willam
ette. Let everybody sign these petitions,
to the end that those in authority may
know the will of the people in the Wil
lamette valley in regard to this matter.
The Odd Ffllows' Picnic On Mon
day, specially intended for three-linkers
and their families, was a most pleasant and
agreeable affair. Promptly at 10 o'clock
A. M Albauy Lodge Xo. 4. and Orgeana
Encampment Xo. 5, I.O.O.F., tormed in
procession at ttieir hall on First street, and.
headed by Albany Brass Band, marcbed
up First to Washington street, out Wash
ington to Fifth, and from Fifth to Hackle
man's grove. Arriving at the grove, after
a few minutes' intermission, the opening
ode was sung, and the X. G- Walter
Ketchum, introduced Past Chief Patriarch,
J. F. Backeusto, wbo delivered a most
interesting aud entertaining address, which
was listened to throughout with the closest
aSeittton by Ids audience. Bro. Dunbar,
of Salem, was then called upon by the
Noble Grand, and responded in his usual
happy manner, in his remarks taking occa
sion to acknowledge the bad egg prop
ositi ou. We not only fogive him, but
sympathise with him, and hope be may
' go and sin no more." After singing the
closing ode, the "bretbering and cistern,
assembling around well filled lunch bas
kets, proceeded to refresh the " inner man
in the regular orthodox manner or words
to that effect. It was a grand and refresh
ing sight to see some of those old veteran
three-linkers, wbo wore the scars of many
a well-fought fray, going baldheaded after
baked chicken and things with all the vigor
and grace which marked their earlier years.
And then to see the salt chuck of joy leap to
the northeast corner of the optics of the
patriarchal degree members and slowly
chase its way down their happy, smiling
sun-embrowned, Grecian features, as they
observed an aged patriarch of the "royal
purple," slowly but grandly rise to bis feet.
with happiness and brotherly-love beaming
from every knot-ltole in his complexion,
grasping in his left hand the limb of a de
funct fowl ot the genus chicken, and his
right hand holding aloft a bottle of soda.
while his expansive mouth, large but ex
pressive, was well filled with cake and
pickles and ham and peaches and pie, in
melting but somewhat smothered and in
distinct tones, offer the toast of the day
ah! words fail to express the beauty, the
grandeur, the magnitodinositousness of the
picture ! It beat anything all to pieces.

above indicated, ail present would have

day was ddlgfotful, and everything con
spired to make the occasion pleasant aod
agreeable to all. In the evening. Odd
Fellows and their families praeeeded to tbe
skating rink, which bad been chartered for
the occasion, w bere the day was firtfahrid

We have fVom time to time dinW oaf
jmHence ia thia county, through, the
, columns ot the Kbgister, advocated the
building of a bridge across the Santiam at
Lebanon, or at any more feasible point.
if such there be, for tbe accommodation of
tbe people residing In the forks of the
Santiam. We have shown that one of tbe
richest and most productive districts in the
county, in which reside nearly or quite one-
third of our population, are practically shut
off from the county-seat and tbe balance of
tbe county by this barrier, the Santiam
river, during a portion of the year. On
several different occasions petitions, largely
signed by prominent citizens, not only resi
dents of tbe Forks, but of other portions of
tbe eonnty, have been . presented to our
Honorable Commissioners, asking that a
suitable bridge be built across tbe Santiam
at Lebanon, the petitioners agreeing to
pay a portion of the cost of such bridge.
As it is announced that the county is now
entirely free from debt, a more auspicious
occasion for presenting and urging tbe
claims of the people in tbe Forks
in this behalf could not be selected.
County Court convenes next week, and the
friends of tbe enterprise should use all the
intervening time in fortifying and strength
ening their petition, and in securing tbe
fullest data to bty before that honorable
body, to tbe end that they may have a fair
and impartial bearing and secure favorable
consideration of the subject.
The citizens immediately interested cer
tainly have exhibited a commendable
spirit in proffering contributions of $,000
or $5,000 toward a work which not only
will prove immediately beneficial, but will
increase in value from year to year to that
whole section ot country as well as to tbe
general interest and benefit of tbe citizens
of tbe whole county. After a thorough
canvass ot the matter, it seems to us that
no well founded objection can be urged
against the county's paying at least one-
half the cost of a so much needed public
Tbe contemplated bridge will be 380 feet
from one abutment to tlie other, with one
pier in the center. One abutment
already constructed by nature, decreasing
the cost of the bridge, wliicii, npon careful
estimate, will not exceed $10,000. We do
not believe that any serious or formidable
opposition will be offered against an enter
prise of such vital importance to the in
terests of tbe people of tlie Forks of tbe
Santiam. and affecting more or less the
general interests of our whole people, as
does the building of such a bridge. When
all the facts are taken into consideration,
no reasonable objection can be urged to tbe
appropriation by the county of the neces
sary funds to build tbe bridge. The people
directly interested propose to donate half
tbe cash necessary to build the bridge, and
they will also pay their proportion of the
tax assessed upon property throughout the
county to raise the balance. Can anything
be more just or fairer on their part t Tbe
building of tbe bridge win prove largely
beneficial to this city, as all the trade
hitherto driven to Marion county because
of the difficulty experienced in crossing tlie
Santiam, will then come here.

Harrtsburg, April 26, 1S7S.
Ed. Register : According to previous
arrangements, the three-linkers of this
vicinity took a grand excursion from this
place to Corvallis to-day.
At 6 A. M. members of tbe order num
bering some thirty-fire or forty, formed in
procession at. their hall, and, headed by
tbe Harrisburg and Halsey brass bands,
under tbe kadershiph of Prof. Everest,
took up their line of march through the
principal streets of the city to the wharf,
where lay the O. S. S. Co, 'a fine steamer,
Fannie Patton, with steam np ready to be
off as soon as passengers and luggage could
be gotten on board. At 6 tbe line was
east off, and we started down the winding
Willamette, with flags flying and bands
playing, and the greatest enthusiasm pre
vailing among the exenrtionists. Soon
after starting, the freight deck being
cleared, the " youngsters n of tbe party
formed quadriHs and commenced dancing,
which they kept np pretty much all day,
winding op in the evening with a "fat
men's dance." In this last dance we
noticed Geo. Brandenburg. M. Fuller, and
others of equal averdapoise.
After a pleasant run of four boors, we
arrived at the point of destination, Cor
Tallis. As the boat landed at the wharf
we were greeted by a cordial reception
from Barnaul Lodge, I.O.O.F., and by
several hundred citizens, and last, but not
least, by the Corvallis brass band, which
saluted us with some splendid masks what
it lacks in numbers it makes np in vim.
A procession was then formed and
marched to the Court House, wbere Prof.
Emery was introduced, and delivered a
