In this epoch parents are looking anx
iously about lot4 suitable institutions of
learning for tlieif- children. If we trust
Stuffed circulars, every Variety of taste can
be sati-fied. One institution makes a spet
hdty of teaching grammar, another one
thing, another something else, and so it
goes. With so many school to select from
the dutiful parent knows not whore to
choose, and often in perplexity , takes the
first that oilers. It is a matter of para
mount Importance,' however, one should not
be tieeWedthoiitcareful. JftSiMttofc
There are the big mouthed professors who,
having failed in business, have become
teachers. Some of these men have a' certain
gift of managing children, a very necessary
thing in a teacher, not enough, however, to
make one a good instructor. From such
podagogs the parent should keep away.
But to select one from the honest teacher is
not an easy matter. This one is not a
member of the right church, or that one is
too strict, another not strict enough. The
best wav is for the parent to decide just
what is wanted. Their children must be
educated, and a place selected tor them
which will most amply supply their wants.
Parents who have studied character, know
that some children must be led with gent l5
ness, others governed by authority, while
others need only a little help here .and
there to teach them to walk alone. Tim
moral wants of children nmt not.be lost
sight of. Such features as these must be
regarded as the most impressive year o4
life. Wc must always keep in view that
our children arc to be made honest, up
right men and women, healthy in body,
mind and soul. We begin to see. now,
why it is so difficult to select a suit:.b;c
school. But after the school is chosen, the
parent's work is not done. There is more
for the mother to do than to get the chil
dren oft' to school in time, and more tor the
father to do than simply to pay tli! bills.
Teaching is not to be left to the teacher en
tirely parents uiuxt help. They can do
this at home, by taking an interest in the
lessons to be learned ; and they can accom
plish more good by visiting the school.
The teacher is but the assistant of the pa
rent, and it must be known thai both are
working in the same direction. The father
may not find time XQ-do much, but. the
mother can. She may not have been high
ly educated but she can tell if her children
are surrounded by good inlluences ; if they
are taught conscientiously or superficially.
The teacher is pleaded to know that he or
she has the parent's hearty co-operation,
and the pupils are proud to show the pro
gress made since tlie last visit. Parents,
there is stiil the work of advising, assisting
and supervising to be done.

TO HE EllIXTEt 'ItOll FClt OUIt RlIE.
Time and agtiiu, for years past, the Uro
isteI! has showed tiie advantages that
would accrue to city and county by the
building tip of manufacturing industries in
our midst. A year or two since, when a
gentleman of large experience in the busi
ness, a ptaetical woolen manufacturer,
came to the city, and, after careful exami
nation and enquiry, became satisfied that
Albany was one of the best, if not the very
best, points in the State for the successful
prose-union of such an industry, and pro
posed to put up halt the capital necessary
to build and outfit a first class woolen mill
if our citizens would furnish the other half.
We urged upon our citizens the acceptance
of the ofifer. But times were hard, money
tight, and our citizens generally had not
fully awakened to the grand destiny that
awaited our city in the near future, to be
realized by the liberality, energy and push
of a few of our fellow-citizens. Various
propositions were made, by different
parties, and a good deal of breath was
spent, canva3aing the matter of the erection
of a woolen mill, from time to time, but
nothing definite was effected. Last Sat
nrday five of our most practical, thorough
paced business men, realizing the necessity
of immediate action, drew up and signed
the necessary articles incorporating a com
pany who propose erecting and carrying
ou the business of a woolen factory: The
incorporators are : Messrs. J. V. Backen
sto, S. E. Young, D. M. Thompson, C. P.
Burkhart and Thos. Monteith. The capital
stock of the Company is $12,000, divided
into shares of $100 each. We have little
doubt that the stock in tills enterprise M ill
all be taken by our citizens at once, so that
the Company may be organized and pro
ceed at once to business. The enterprise
should enlist the hearty anpport of every
citizen of the city and county, as it is an
industry whicli, it prosecuted energetically,
will aid more tlian any other siugle enter
prise the growth and prosperity of the city
and county. .
Freights Lowered. As will be seen
by an advertisement elsewhere in this is
sue, the Oregon & California Eailrbad
Company, have lowered their rates of
freight on general mercliandise from Port,
land to this city to twenty-flye cents per
bnndred pounds,' or $5 par ton. This is
quite a fall from old rates, and will be ap
preciated by our merchants and others.
The old. rates were t First class, per lOOfts.,
5Sc second class, 48c I third , class, 35c.
Judging from the advertisement, there will
hereafter be but one rate.

by a quiver hi the month, and ended in a

of a man with a life-preserver on. The
body was takeir aboard, 'and from a let-4
ter from his sister found in. one of , his

i At Neah bay, Lieut. ITarwood, com
mander of the cutter, went on shore and
requested the Indian agent there, Mr.
Huntington, to lend his aid in prosecut
ing the search, which th ! ; agent will
ingly agreed to do. He started a num
ber ot trustworthy Indiana down, the
coast south from Cape Flattery to pick
up white men's bodiesor any .others,
and bring them to the agency. These
Indians searched the shore for twenty
miles below the cape, and returned two
days afterward, reporting no signs of a
wreck along the shore in that direction.
The agent also furnished Lieutenant
Ilarwood with a canoe and crew of In
dians, which was taken on board the cut
ter to prosecute the search on the north
shore ot the straits in pjaces where the
steamer or her boats could Dot reach.

Mr. Huntington, and also the body,
