The Firf.men's Excursion. Although
late, yet we cannot re fraiii from adding
our testimony to the tact that the excursion
of our firoaieit to Portland on Tuesd.iy of
last week, was a most happy affair. The
occasion wiis tlie celebration of the 22il an
niversary of Willamette Engine Company
No- 1, of Portland. Mo.-t extensive and
exhaustive preparation) liad been made by
the Willamette for the reeeptiou and e
tert&lutacut of tlieir ties,s and rlylit roy
ally were tlie nriinjremtMits carried out.
From first to last cur people were surfeited
with attention and Undue?, the members
of the Portland Fire Deparinent viciiig
with each oilier In evidencing tlieir kindly
rejfird and good feeliiis. Our i-eople
Were'tonislied a tlie magnitude of the
preijaratwuj. of Che. Wiilaincttes for tlie en
tertainment of lleir guests. extwiding a.s
they did through two eiuire days, and eni
lr.iclng'evcry thing of interest in the city.
The citizens, too. manifested a kindly in
terest in the full success of their favorite
lire company, by throwing open their pub
lie halls and extending a cordial invitation
tc the guests ot the Company to make
themselves at home." , In fact it seemed
that every door was oiteifed, and ever cit
izen extended tlie hand of welcome. Un
der such circumstances tle celebration
on!d not be otherwise than a scecess a
success so full and complete tliut the fire
boys and tlie citizcus of Portland may ever
feel their hearts swell with proud and hon
est satisfaction when referring to the cele
brativii of the 22d anniversary of Willam
ette Engine Company No. 1. It certainly
wastW most complete, unexceptionable
and unapproiicliable fii-emeu's lay out ve
;nve ever -witnessed in any country or at
any time. Long may tlie officers and
members of Willamette Engine Company
continue to flourish and prosper.
After tlie completion of tlieYaqniua Eiy
Railway to this city, llio next great under
taking will be to continue the ro:rd East
ward The capitalists owning tlie Ca.-ca-Te
Mountain Wagon lload, leading ft-oni this
city eastward over the Cascade r:tiig. have
expressed the determination of building a
railway from this city through their vast
lauded eiate, numbering some two mil
lions of acres. iiioii the completion of the
Yaquina Bay Railway to Albany. Such a
rail way would ot !niiilculah'c vaMe to
Linn county, opening op and affording a
markf t to a vast and riclt asricuituml dis
trict that now languishes for the want of
transportation facilities. Let our friends o!
the Forks take courago; the day of their
deliverance is at hand. "
RECEPTION. Albany Engi'se Company
Xo 1 gave a grand reception at the Op -ra
Ilouse on Monday evening, in which a
large number of our citizens took rrirt and
apparently enjoyed themselves hugely. It
was the pleasantest occasion .we have en
joyed for many an evening, and the red
shirts exerted themselves to make every
one feel at home. Ice cream, lemonade
and cake was furnished hi ahiiot unlimited
supply, and the way some of thosj people
went for tlie good things was a caution.
Toasts were read, which were responded
toby Messrs Jos. Webber. Capt. Hum
phrey, L. U. Blain, M. V. Brown, Major
Herreu Geo. Humplirey, Rev.S. G. Irvine
and Jddge Baldwin. Rev. Dr. Hill give
a volunteer toast and speech, which was
well received. Albany Bku.s Band filled
iu the spaces with some excellent music.
As we remarked above, it was a very
pleasant occasion, and the boys have added
largely to their list of friends in this ci'y.

Albany Reoistek: After a three day's
ramble over the rolling surface of Polk
County, weary and begrimmed with dust,,
we bring up at the thriving village ot
Buena Vista regale, refresh, and fall back
in our easiest chair, and for a short time
live over in review the incidents of our
travels, and note some of the many changes
that liave been effected in the improvement
of this county, in the short space of two
year's lime dining which we have been
absent. Having resided here-abouts for
about eight years prim-to '74, we will be re
sponsible for saying that thrift and prog
ress is remarkably manifest in every
branch of buiiness; agriculture in partic
ular. The county is naturally beautiful,
and just as naturally productive, convenient
and healthy. The soil produces all the
grains, fruits and vegetables common to
Willamette soil, of a better than average
quality a fact largly clue to the natural
drainage of tlie lauds. The surplus water
Is rapidly carried away, leaving the
ground in a tillable condition nuich earlier
than the more level parts of the country.
The alternate hid and vale, and open oak
and ash groves, and frequent spriugs of liv
ing water, add beauty, health and conven
ience to the numerous resources of wealth.
We find the settlers not behind in ener
gy and sttccss. The highways and byways
once familiar to us are, in many instances,
changed or improved till we hesitate to
recognize our whereabouts the farms well
located and improved, and obscured by
waving fields of grain. The decaying old
buildings have beau torn away and new
ones appear in tlieir places. Comfortable
dwellings and commodious barns loom up
in tlie many places where, a short time
ago, was a graslcss pasture corner. The
widened grain fields and well repaired
fencing largely index the interior disposi--tion
and circumstances of the inhabitants.
The click of the reapers and whirr ot the
threshing machines tell that harvest is ad
vancing. We had the privilege of examin
ing some new wheat received by Hobart
& Robertson, and fiud the mr.rlts of the
hot weather preceptiable on tlie kernel, yet
the more than usual acreage will more
than olltct the short yield. More an in.
11. M. li.
Pay Up. The '-Grange Union. Albany,"
has declared an assessment of fifty per cent,
on the stock taken, and calls upon the
stockholders to come down, fork over, pay
up at once. Of course those interested
will take heed. Nothing can lie done
without coin, and if shareholders want tlie
biz to go on, they'll fork over the stamps.

Everything goes foi a dollar.
Political. We came near forgetting
to mention that Lafayette Eane, Esq.,
Democratic candidate for Congress, gave
our citizens an exhibition of his ability
as an orator one night last week at the
Court Ilouse. It was rather a feeble effort,
but he may improve in time at least there
is great room for improvement. Hons.
Geo. R. Helm and John M. Geartn, the
latter of Multnomah county, made the
