and noble hospitality, containing thoosaod.
We bad been so constantly confined within
our noble little city of Albany, the oasis
ot the valley, " that we scarce Imagined a
hospitable resident outside, and started on
m cruise of Inspection, expecting, In onr
Ignorance, to lose ocr scalp, even though
ve railroaded the thing. Before starting,
however, we were tenderly provided for by
most considerate friends, with ammunition
sA all kinds necessary to our entire satety
sfigalnst danger during our trip, depending,
of course, upon our moral courage and
-fighting propensities. Hence our safety
. and compliments in our present position.
Our camp is with Mr, Ja. Comstock,
rhlch Is all that is necessary to be said
for if a man wants comfort ami happiness,
and Jim cant give it to him, " It cant be
' did." Them's our sentiments, and we
.boldly proclaim them. ; , !;':
Mr. Comstock, by tbe way, Is elegantly
situated a fine residence, office, etc., and
m his business ot sawmilllng recognizes no
superior. His mill located here is adjacent
to tbe finest of timber, and saws not less
than from 13,000 to 20,000 feet per day.
Tbe lumber Is shipped along tbe line of tlie
railroad as ordered. He informed me,
"however, that he has established at Albany
lumber yard, with Mr.s John Andrews
"lone of the politest and most honorable
gentleman on the coast, as manager. -
Outside of business, a pleasant field of
Munusement Is offered here in tbe way ot
bunting and fishing trout- In abundance,
and, In the hunting season, deer till yon
cant repose. Mr. C. has a full pack of
hounds, running under tlie sobriquets Of
Goldsmith Maid, Lucky, Fanny, Sconchlny

Tliis vlrdict places John V, Smith in an

testimony adduced on the occasion is to be
believed, tlie verdict does not go far
enough. It 'appears' from .' the evitlence
that the oumpine macliinery of thej boat
had been out ot order for months, and
through such : ineficiency the boat ; was
liable to an explosion at any moment. It
may be lield that an Investigation before a
Coroner necessarily cannot be as searching
and thorough as if brought before a . court
of justice, where parties are represented by
counsel, an- witnesses are subjected to a
thorough examination, and therefore tlie
public should not pass judgment until tlie
matter has been thoroughly itivestigated.

Our i. aty to Emixrant.
K migration is pouring in upon us la a
steady stream from the East,' from- one 'to
three hundred arriving on every steamer
from Sau FranciacOxto Portland, and from
thence finding their way ail over tbe State.
Large numbers liave arrived among us, and
more are coming,' seeking employment In
our towns and villages as mechanics and
laboring men, while others who have
means are seeking Information with regard
to lands, desiring to purchase and make
homes for themselves and little ones. It is
often difficult for a stranger to obtain the
information he desires, from not knowing
to whom to apply. 'To obviate this and
other difficulties under which new comers
among ns labor, the State Board of Immi
gration, consisting of Messrs. w S. Ladd,
H. W. Corbett, B. Goldsmith, C. Llenen
weber and Wm. Beld, have appointed
Committees of Immigration in every town,
village, and district in Oregon, who are re
quested to give all the aid and Information
they can obtain to emigrants seeking em
ployment and homes among us.: Dr. D.
W. Ballard and Jas. Elklns have been ap
pointed members ot the Committee for
Lebanon, and Messrs. Beach & Montelth,
Jas. II. Foster & Co., and the editor of
this sheet , for Albany. Now -'"what tlie
members of the Committee ask ; of the
people of Linn county is, if you jwlsli to
employ any kind of helpTgive them Infor
mation of the fact ; whether It be mechan
ics, farm help or day laborers; the length
of time you wish such help; the wages you
will pay, etc. If the Committee have, the
necessary information, they will doubtless
be able to send you exactly the kind of
help you want, at no cost to you or the
party employed. Then again, if those who
have farms r mill sites to sell, or any
other property likely to be wanted the
new comers will lw-ve the necessary Infor
mation with the Committee, it will aid in
uo little degree all parties concerned, while
no one will be at .any expense watever.
The principal design in appointing these
Committees, however, we apprehend, is to
enable emigrants to obtain vork in the
various stations for which tliey are fitted.
If men are wanted In logging camps, on
tarms, In factories, or as blacksinitlis, car
penters, shoemakers, wagonmakers, or in
any trade or branch ".of business in'any iwi-
tlon ot the county, forward information of
such fact to members of tlie Committee,
who will then be in a position to aid both
parties. '.Just remember this, friends wlien
you are in this city or Lebanon, call npon
a member of the Committee and let your
wants be known. In this way employment
can easily he proviueu lor -many . wno
would otherwise leave the State, and we
would lose valuable citizens. iVe have
invited emigration to the State;: we need
tlie brawn and muscle; it lias come upon
our invitation, and now let us do our whole
duty iu the matter. I

At a recent gathering ot Grangers in an
Eastern city, one of . the speakers con
tributed some very- interesting facts bear
ing upon tlie growth of the Order of Uie
Patronvof Husbandry. Said tlie speaker,
six years ago uo elevators or warehouses
were owned by us and no iiisnmnce .was
controlled by us. Now, in one Sfite alone
there are thirty one insurance companies
and more than ltalf that number of eleva
tors and warehouses in Iowa .and Wiscon
sin are under our control. j tirt her more
we liave agents In every section of tlie
country, to whom we ship onr products
and from whom wo receive prices forty or
filty per cent, higher than we formely re
ceived from local buyers. Iu consequence
of the fairness of our treatment by these
agents w-bo.. ate bound by tlie ties of
brotherhood and heavy money bonds the
Patrons of Husbandry saved five millions
in 1373, twelve millions in 1S74, and ac
cording to the present indications will save
at Jeast twenty millions in 1875.! Six years
ago there were 10 Granges; the next year.
150; tbe next. 200; the next, 2,000; now
there are 15 State Granges gaining in ranks
daily, and we number one million and a
halt. Our experience is pointed proof that
women are worthy members j of every
Grange we have, for a hundred thousand
of tliem are among us. ' j ' , ,
