etiurch Saturday evening.
Counterfeit halt dollars are beginning to
make their appaarance rather too frequent
ly hereabouts. Look out for them.
Takes a Rest. The Corvallls Gazette
takes a month's rest after this week, to en
able the boss to collect what is due, and
arrnnge for tlie improvement of the paper.
Pref. nermann, under the management
of Mr. Sherry Corbyu, starts from San

Mr. Dunning has increased his stock of
furniture, and now has his elegant store
room crowded with as handsome an assort
ment as was ever brought to this city. lie
is offering goods, too, at very reasonable
figures. See ad. elsewhere.
The Woolen Mill. This is certainly
an enterprise that commends itself to every
body. Every man in the city, who can pos
sibly do so, should subscribe tor stock, so
that tlie enterprise may at once be set upon
its feet. Everyone who takes a hand in
helping to secure this enterprise to Albany
will liavo done an act which he will re
member with pleasure ever after.
Gen. Michlcr, who has been in charge of
this lighthouse district tor a year or two
past, lias been ordered to report at Phila
delphia, to await orders. It is understood
that Gen. Wilson will be assigned to this
district. Gen. Mfchler will probably not
go East until next mouth. lie will carry
with him the good wishes of all who were
acquainted with him.
Fire. The fire Sunday night at the Dem
ocrat office emptied the different churclies
of the city in a jiffy. Tlie night was in
tensely dark and stormy, adding to the ter
ror al way3 inspired by the cry of Sre. The
side and crosswalks in the vicinity of the
burning building were soon crowded with
men, women and children, all eager to aid
in extinguishing the fire. Our people are
always ready to lend thei aid iu emergen
cies ot this kind.
llarry Webber, the young man who was
some time ago arrested in Albany and
taken to Tlie Dalles to be tried for horse
stealing, has been entirely exonerated from
the charge, the grand jury having tailed to
find an indictment against him. And
what is better, another party was convicted
of the ofTeuse, which completly clears tip
any suspicion which might rest upon young
Webber in regard to the matter.
Steam Fikk Engine Secured. Half
the stock necessary to purchase a steam fire
engine for tbeTwostcrs lias been subscribed,
and the remainder will soon be secured.
The holders of stock will organize by the
election of Directors, as soon as tlie neces
sary notice can be given, when the engine,
a Xo. 4 Clapp fe Jones, with jumper, 500
feet of the best Iiose. etc., will be ordered.

Terrible Accident. Saturday morning
last, Frank Chambers was fearfully mash
ed and bruised by a sw log which caught
him in its foil, knocking him down and roll
ing on him. As near as we could learn
them, the facts are tliesc : A large fir had
been sawed nearly in two, at the logging
camp on Rainwater's place opposite this
city, wlien Frank took his ax and went on
the lower side of the hill to cut the log
through on the under side. The log was
much nearer in two than he thought for,
sud he gave the log but one blow when it
fell, throwing him down and tolling on to
him. He lay beneath tlie terrible weight
ot tiiat log for half an honr, with leg brok
en and hip crushed, before sufficient assis
tance could be obtained to lift the log. Dr.
D. SC. Jones was called, who rendered all
tlie assistance in his power. Young Cham
bers will hardly get well.
Under this heading the Oregon City
Enterprise remarks as follows : The noon
day prayer-meetings which were given In
Allen's dance cellar in New York, are said
to have produced much good. - Allen 1 lira-
Belt, at one time known as "the wickedest
man In New Yoik," is said to pave been
thoroughly converted and now is engaged,
like the ex-Engllsb prize-fighter, Bendigo,
in spreading the good work among his own
and lower classes. Businessmen In New
York City to this day attend tlie once resort
of vice as regularly as the priest reads his
breviary. The efficacy of prayer in this
place is said to have been, on numerous oc
casions, most fully demonstrated.
From a correspondent we learn that dur
ing the noon prayer meeting ot the Young
Men's Christian Association, Portland,
a well known gambler arose, and drawing
from bis pocket an elegantly made card
box, said 5 " I want to be a Christian,"
handing at the same time the card box to a
member of tlie ' Association; "and I- want
you to take this and remember me in roar
prayers." He then took two packs of cards
from bis pockets and gave one to General
Howard one to Rev. Sir. Chatin, Secretary
of the Association. As these iafjpJemnCs
of vice were given "up, accompanied by
earnestj pathetic words many in the room
were moved to tears, j. Aad we have no
doubt diit there was that rejoicing in Heav
en which the Good Book tells us comes In
Variable from the return, of a contrite sinner.
A ragged, sad-cved boy, aged nine
or ten, stopped me on the Btieet the
other day and Baid : j ,
"I haven't had anything to eat this
whole day ! Won't! you please give
me ten cents?" ;
I cjave it to him. I'd have given tlie
money if it had becu necessary to pawn
my hat. i : v
"Do you Jet impostors . swindle you
in that manner ?" inquired an intimate
A journalist who lias knocked around
tor a daily paper a dozeu years lias
seen every phase of human life. Men,
women, and children have swindled
him, or sought to ; people have lied to
him ; bis money has been given to whin
'aS IynS vagrants who told diietul
tales of distress, and he ought to be able
to correctly read human nature.
"I'll bet that boy is a professional
beggar," continued my friend, chuckling
at the idea of my being swindled.
None of us care for the loss of a shin
plaster on the street, while every one
feels vexed and anno3ed at the idea of
being swindled out of a single penny.
I could not say the boy was not a swind
ler, and yet I would have divided my
last shilling with him;
I told my friend why, and I will also
One day last year when the wind
blew the snow over the house-roots, and
around the corners in blinding clouds,
and when the frosty air cut one's face
like a knife, a boy of ten came np to
me as I waited for the car. He was
thinly clad. His face betrayed hunger
aud suffering, and in a mournful voice
lie pleaded :
"I'm hungry and cold."
" Why don't you go home?" I asked.
"I haven't any "
"Haven't you any relatives ?"
"How lcng have you been here?"
The boy spoke in that drawl which
professional beggars assume. I believ
ed, too, that 1 had seen his face on the
streets time and again. I hardened my
heart and then sail :
"Boy! 1 know you, and if I catch
yon asking any one for money agaiu I'll
have you arrested !"
He moved away quiekly. I argued
that this proved his guilt, forgetting
that a homeless, friendless waif might
evince fear when entirely innocent.
Five hours later, when night bad
come, aud the wind had grown to a
tierce gale, the boy halted me again as I
plunged through the; 6now drifts. I
did not see him until he cried out :
"Mister! I'm almost starved, and
I'll freeze to death if I can't get some
place to sleep!"
The same thin ragged clothes, hardly
comfortable enough for June weather
the same whine to his voice. I felt like
giving him money, but the fear that he
had been 6ent out by his parents to beg
restrained and angered mc. Catching
him by the arm I j'elled oat :
"See here, boy ! if yon don't own up
that you are lying to me I'll take you
to the station!"
Through the blinding storm I saw
his white face grow paler and paler,
and he cried back :
"Don't take me dou't ! Yes sir, I
am lying!" ; . .......
I released him and he hurried away,
while I walked on, flattering : myself
that I had played a sharp game and
done the generous public a good - turn.
An hoar later when the night had
grown still wilder and colder, some one
knocked at the door. It was a . timid
kneck, and I wondered who could have
sent child, abroad on such a , night.
VV am l opened the door that same boy
was on the step, his face blue with cold,
bis whole form shivering, and a look of
desperation in bin eyes., I,-,
"Please Mister- !" lie began - but
stopped when recognizing mo.; r, ..,
I was pazsled to know why he' should
have followed roe . home why ho Lad
selected me for a victim and trailed me
so persistently. I might have argued
that the storm bad! driven people ofFthfl
street, and that ' the freezing, starting;
boy bad m his desperation, called at Ike
bouse, br.t I did'nt. - Had it' been ! any
ether boy or any other person asking
charity I would liave given promptly
and freely. Batf was angry at" his
trailing me angered, that he thought
he could swriijdle'md, and I grabbed at.
him and inquired i 1 v. ,
"Boy, what is yonr name Y" ' "' !
He leaped back, and stau&irig'Arhere
the furious storm "almost -buried him
from sight, he answered ;
"I know you sir!" I shouted, and
he moved slowly away without uttering
another word. r "
Slay the Lord 4orgive me for that
night's woik ! but yon-might have acted
the. same. WlseB morning came, after
a riight so bftte 'Uvi policemen were
frozen on their beats, I opened the door
to find that boy dead on; the steps
frozen to death ! I knew, as the dead
white face looked up at me through the
snow, that I had wronged bim with my
suspicions, but it was too late then
the angels had opened to bim a gate
leading to where the human ; heart and
its unworthy thoughts can never enter.
Poor Gil ! A warm meal or a shilling
would have saved his life, aud I drove
him out to his death.
This is why I give when T am asked
how. . I know that 1 sometimes give to
the unworthy, thinking that it would be
better to give all I possessed to an im
postor than to have another homeless
waif creep back to die on the spot wliere
I had unjustly accused him.

Ten years ago. John Mackey was
working as a mining laborer in a little
exploring shaft in Virginia City. He
swung his pick vigorously, and was paid
$4 a day. To-day he has a larger in
come than any other single individual
in America, and if his wealth continues
to accumulate as it has in the past two
years, his fortune will rival that of the
richest Rothschild. Sir. Slackey is the
head of the great firm of Flood &
O'Brien of SanFrancisco, whose gigant
ic operations and grand aggregation ot
capital recently swamped the Bank of
Cailifornia, and hurled Sharon, Ralston
and Jones from their financial pedestal.
The members of the firm are John Mac-
key, James C. Flood, William S. O'Bri
en and jCol. James G. JEfair; Sir. Slack.
ey is the financial head,FIood and O'Bri
en attend to the interests of the firm in
Clifornia, ' and Col. Fair is working
superintendent of the mines in Virginia
City. The latter embrace the Consoli
dated Virginia.the richest mine ever dis
covered in Nevada, late turning out a
million and a half a month : the. Call
fornia, adjoiuing it, with even a larger
body of ore ; the Hale and Noicross,
Best aud Belcher, Gonld and Curry,
Sierra, Nevada, Slexican, and finally
the famous Savage, which in years
gone by has turned out its millions
Besides, they own a score of small
mines, any one of which may at any time
turn up a bonanza. Ot the entire busi
ness and profits of the firm, Sir. Slackey
has a three-fifths iuterest. . The .firm
owns 66,000 shares of Consolidated
Virginia stock, on which they declare a
monthly dividend of $10 a share. Slack
cy's share of this is $396,000 a month.
Ot stock in the California mine, they
own 60,000 shares. The first monthly
dividend is to be declared in November
and this will add to Sir. Slackey's in
come, $360,000 a month. The other
mines that the firm control pay uo divi
dends, but they yield a large revenue to
tlie firm in ways , mora indirect. For
instance, the firm owns all the wood
used in their working, for fuel, tc , and
they sell it to tlie companies at - au im
mense profit. The Savage. Hale and
Norcross, and Gould aud Curry . all
crush more or less ore, and this is done
in the firm' 3 mills at a cost of $13 a ton.
The yield of silver being scarcely enough
to pay the cost' of both . mining and
crushing, assessments are levied to make
up the deficiency. The firm's income
from this source and from crushing the
ore of the Consolidated Virginia, which
is also done in their own mills, is esti
mated at $50,000 a month, of which
put Sir. Slackey down for $30,000."
" 'Add to this the prospective profits of
the Nevada 'Bank; which basjust open
ed with' a cash capital of $5,000,000
and which is the1 exclusive property ot
the firm, and, you may then figure out
tlie income .of Nr. "Slackey,, . The Bank
ot California paid for years 18 per cent,
on their $5,000,000 capital. ( The profits
of the new 4ank- cannot' be ' less. - This
amounts to. , $900 ,00, bti $75,000 a
month, of which ,Mr.. Slackey's .f hare
will be $45,000.". To sum up , then,
Slackey will have for the next year from
his mining and bullion interests' alone
the colossal income ot $31,009 a month,
or at f.he rats of nearly $10,000,000 a
year. " This does uofc include the income

the past year he has been caking: large
investments in the very heart of the city.
Whole blocks of. the most, valuable real
estate in San Erancisco have been' pur
chased, ad- the Income from this cannot
well be estimated, but it must be enor
SIh Mackey is the most retiring and
modest of any of the California million
aires. He lives in Virginia but his
family spend most ot their time iu San
Francisco. He dresses plaijily and
might be supposed to be a well-to-do
farmer nothing more. Already the
Nevada politicians are moving to make
him Senator Jones's successor in Wash
ington. If he. wants the place, be can
undoubtedly buy it for rnurh less money
thaa Jones paid, for Nevada politicians
ave poor and hungry, and will sell out
' Of Slackey's partners, J. C." Flood is
the most important. Witll O'Brien,
Flood used to keep a little groggery on
Sansome street, Saa Francisco. They
did not dose the establishment until
1867. They made some money at the
business and invested it with Slackey
in the purchase of the ground that is a
part of the Consolidated v lrginia mine.
Flood aud O'Brien are Irishmen. They
are shrewd and sharp in business, gener
ons to their friends, and unrelenting to
their enemies. They took np a poverty
stricken newspaper man last spring a
man who had done them some little
turn while they were in the whisky
business and in three days made him
worth $75,000. On the other hand,
Sharon, and Ralston, and the Bank of
California, which had offended them,
they crushed out in three weeks, and
they wonld have kept the bank down
but tor Ralston's death and the popular
outcry against them. Flood recently
bought $3,000,000 worth of real estate,
and said himself just before the new
bank opened that be had $4,000,000
lent on call at one per cent, a month.
His wealth is second only to that of
Slackey. Col. Fair is the only man of
book education in the firm. He has
long been a mining superintendent, and
is somewhat noted for tricks that are
vain. When lie was poor, a few years
asjo, he was known by some as "Lying
Jim Fair," and by others as "SI ppery
Jim," but everybody calls him Col.
Fair now. He is worth ten millions.

The Oregonian of last week says :
"During the last fair at Salem an old
coachman went into Rockwell's horse
show. When he came to the door, a
yonng man by the name of Cole was at
the entrance. He handed Cole a $5 gold
piece. The people were pressing so that
Cole had no time to make change, and
said to the man, "go in and take yonr
seat and I will bring you your change
when the rush is over." When Cole
presented his tshange, the man said it
was ten dollars he srave him. Cole said
it was but five. Sir. Rockwell said to
the coachman that he saw the money
aud it was but'nve dollars. The man
gave him the d d lie twice. Sir,
Rockwell asked him to be civil, and
about that time he gave Cole the lie.
Cole pnt in a blow and knocked him
down. His friends carried him out
Soon after the Slarshal came to arrest
Cole, who had stepped back out of sight.
Mr. Rockwell told the Slarshal that if
he would take Cole before a justice and
give him a fair trial, he would have him
come in, give himself np and would pay
his fine. It was agreed to and the fine
proved to be $30 aud costs, amounting
to $30 more, which was considered out
of all reason. The Sunday following
Cole stared in advance ot the rest of the
troupe to Dallas, Rockwell having ad
vertiscd to show at five different points
on his circuit to Portland. Mr. Cole had
only got six miles from Sa;em, when a
party of eight haU-breeds and roughs
came up with him, headed him off, and
ordered him to halt, saying, they were
friends of the coach driver and had come
to mob him. He drew his revolver and
stood them oft" until be could ' take his
horses loose from the wagon aud came
back to . Salem, leaving the wagon io
the road. lie reported to Rockwell,
who at once said it lie had to fight his
way jnto a community he would not go.
Mr. Colo said that it he would send all
the boys along he could go, but could
not go alone. Mr. Rockwell replied
that it might cost bloodshed and money
would not pay for that ; that he should
take the boys and bring back the wagon
and he would ship next day to Portland
then to Victoria and leave for Califor
nia. Hence Lis connectien with the ill
fated steamer. - It may be well to state,

A Curious Geographical Peob
UEjr A ctiriotis geographical pfobteth
is suggested by the appearance at the
mouth ot the Seine, near Havre, in the
goatsc' of the present month, of one ot the
hermetically sealed "bottles in wooden
caseSjWhich were thrown overboard dur
iag Prince Napoleon's North Pole Ex
pedition in 1860, Wooden-covered bot
tles of this kind were thrown into the
sea, daily in the month of June, in that
year from the Prince's ship, in the ex
pectation that the course taken by them
would lead to the elucidation or tie di
rection of the greater "oceaiiie currents ;
but during the fourteen and a half years
that have intervened since then none of
these bottles have been seen till the
present one was washed ashore. Its
appearance at the mcuth of the Seine
seems to indicate that a polar current
must be borne into the German Ocean,
and must be carried thence through the
channel to the Western coast of France.
WuattheSIexxoxites aee.- The
great influx of Slennonites into this
country, and their settlement in colonies
in the Western States, give a universal
interest to all matters connected with
their history, rtligion and social cus
toms. They derive their name from
Slennon Symons, a contemporary of
Luther, under whose guidance they
were organized and indoctrinaaee. In
some respects they are like the Quakers,
in still others like, themselves. Tliey
are opposeed to War and consistently re
fuse military service or to hold civil of
fice. They decline to take oaths, in
obedience to the Christain precept,
"Swear not at all." They hold it sin
ful to receive or pay a salary for preach
ing,and their preachers are chosen by lot.
There are 110 changes apparent in their
relations to theworld and business. They
toil from Slonday morning to Saturday
night at the avocation in which they
were found when called to the work ot
the ministry. On the Sabbath they rie
before immense throngs ot devout jieople
and solemnly tcT them that now they
are going to hat.d over the truth just
as they get it trom the Holy Spirit, and
"they feci to say" thus and so.
On Wall Street. The character of
Wall street business may be understood
by reading the reports ot what has been
done on Wall street in the last week.
We learn that in round numbers nine
hundred and forty-five thousand shares
were bought and sold. Ot these shares
Beven hundred thousand represent what
are called fancy 6tocks that is, stocks
of nominal value, the trade in which
cannot be considered as a sound express
ion of business, ' The buying and selling
ot these stocks, as reported in the tables,
as so is a misnomer. Tliey are not really
bought or sold, tnt "puts" and "calls"
and other contracts for their delivery
hare been the staple ot trade, and many
of the sales, too, have been nomu.a!
between agents of some stock-jobber
anxious to give a false value to the mar
ket. The two hundred and forty thou
sand shares of honest stocks which have
been sold are a gratifying indication of
the real revival iu business. During
the Summer the whole burden of shares
in wall street were these fancy securities.
We can understand the exact value of
Walt street as we mark the diminution of
the sales of the fancy stocks and the in
crease in the sales of the real stocks.
