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 Francisco early next month lor a tour through Oregon and British Colombia. Look out lor phun when lie arrives in this district. 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. The members of Linn Engine Company No. 2 are in the best of spirits over the prospect of obtaining a steamer at an early date. 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. lrn-crBIecUniES. 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 acquaintance. 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; "Why ?' I told my friend why, and I will also tell you. 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 ?" -Xotonel" "How lcng have you been here?" "Three weeks." 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 ; "Gil." ' "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. The Pacific Coast Hildas. 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 6V hisast wealth in "real estate.' : For 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 mous. ' 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 cheap. ' 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. JV. Y. Suti. Clrcnnsstanees Control Men's Destiny. 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, the coachman had borrowed the 5 and many! witnesses', saw it pat into ColeY lianas. . . , . , , An Iowa girl has a chest, containing. two dozen pillow cases, six bed quilts and comforters, three dozea towels, and six table ctoths, and her father has giv en her two cows and ten sheep.

' ' ' 1 ' "' 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. Light and Sunshine. Children need sunshine as much as flowers do. Ha'f an honr daily is not enongh. Sev eral hours arc " required.
