diately, we will sell a half Interest in the

low figure : or we will sell the entire office.
The office Is In good order, and one of the
best arranged in the State, with a full sup
ply of job type, three presses, paper cutter,
etc, and a very targe supply of nearly new
news type. The office has a good run of
business, which can be doubled lit a short
time. As our absence will necessarily ex

to sell at least a half interest. Parties de

A First Class Idea. At the request of
the U. S. Centennial Commission, we pub
lish below a suggestion that meets our
approval fully, an4 suggest that our (Couoty
authorities take (be matter under' advise
It seems proper that the local celebrations
of the Fourth of July, 1876. which will be
held throughout , tjie land, should be made
to contribute to 'a 'permanent historical
memorial of the Centennial Celebration.
In each county provision should be made
for the delivery of an address tracing the
history, of that peculiar community for the
past century, or from the time of Its settle
ment, and Including a sketch of ics growtli,
its resources. Industries, prospect., etc.
These addresses should be publislied in a
uniform, size, that of the Congressional
documents, tor instance, in order that they
may be bound together by States. To com
petent persons the preparation of such
aJdrees would not be an unduly burden
some task; but in the aggregate they would
constitute an invaluable historical reposito
ry such as no nation has ever had the oppor
tunity to collect.
Designations of the historians ought to be
made without delay,, In order tliat they
may have time to accomplish their work.
It is to be liojsed that tlie press will give
general circulation to the project, and that
each journal will see to its consummation
In Its own locality, and that the sliglit ex'

Dear Sir: In order to reduce expenses,
which have become absolutely necessary.
the work of Albany Station must be per
formed by two persons, instead of three as
at present, and as we are obliged to have

must be dispensed with. - ? nr

Mb. Editob : I wrote yon last from
Pbaenlnx, Jackson county Oregon. - CbrUt
mas eve, after-, enjoying - my turkey, I
packed and lashed my trunk , preparatory
to a fresh start on my journey South.
About six o'clock the stage hove in sight,
looking as picturesque as the Willamette
Chief. Approaching the driver I anxious
ly inquired "liave you a load t " my heart
beating terrifically all the while ler fear of
an affirmative answer. But to my great
relief the answer was iu the negative, and
I was soon occupying a seat in the stage.
Having a good pilot and a fair night for
traveling we launched out into the sea of
mud. We made the first station without
mishap, whcre we added on two ; ' more
horses, for we were nearlng Calltornla,
and It requires a full team to get across tlie
line. The early morning brought us to the
foot ot the mountain, ; tlie early morning
light giving us a final glimpse of dear old
Webfoot, The rala soon commenced pour
ing down In torrents, and any amount of
California soil found its way down to some
lower region.. Here b the most forsaken
country I ever saw. Mud three feet . deep
and water In proportion, and all were fear
ful we would be weather-boood. It rained
more In one day In California than F ever
saw In three days In . Oregon. The rain
helped os. yoo know, almost driving our
"scow" before Jt, etpecbily going down
hill, carrying everything before it. But
we landed on to Yreka, through one ot the
most disagreeable days of my experience,
being Sunday evening. , I was anxious to
see the grand old town, for I tented here
on the present town site, twentyrfour years
ago. I thought It one of the most desert
ed-looklng towns of my knowledge, for
getting, you know, that It was Sunday,
and expecting too see everything in full
blast as they were years agone. But one
of the citizens Informed us that now "busi
ness" was done on week days, and respect
was had for the Sabbath. ' Now Yreka has
1.500 inhabitants, but the town certainly
has a downward tendency look now. How
ever, our landlord was a fine fellow, gave
us plenty to eat and drink we mean tea
and coffee. In the drinking line, of course,
as our crowd were all Good Templars,
and drink only hi cases of necessity and
we soon forgot our troubles. Here we
bid over till six o'clock the next morning.
when we were provided with another mod
scow similar to the one we had been favor
ed with, only smaller, called a 11 -passen
ger. Eight passengers' crowd into tlie
space ot seven feet ! Shvels and axes are
tied on to the stage, and when inquiry was
made, passengers are told they must use
them to dig out with when mired down in
the mud. I have traveled a great deal but
never saw worse stage accommodations or
roads. This to one of the great drawbacks
to emigration to Oregon, and will be until
it Is bridged over by a railway. It b true
there to a better and more convenient route
afforded by old ocean, but nearly or quite
three-fourths of mankind will not trrct the
treacherous waters If they can help them
Getting out of change at Redding, the
next stopping place, I tried to get a green
back changed. A man who lias greenbacks
can always find friends. I was no except
ton to this rule. A friend offered to show
me w here I could get the change, and even
took me by the hand to keep me, doubtless,
from falling Into some pitfall, and safely
conveyed me to a place where I could be
accommodated with coin tor my greenback.
My friend even went so far as to receive
the coin from the bar-keeper and count it
into my hand, and take the greenback from
my hand and place it In tlie keeplug of
tlie bar-keeper. Of course I was thankful
for these little civilities, and bowed my
self out, not wishing to trespass on his val
uable time further. But he followed me,
and remarked, "see liere, loan me some
of that money." I kindly refused, didn't
have It to spare, and Informed htm, as I
was a temperance man and perhaps not so
liable to tall tn the darkness, that I would
not trouble him .farther for hi company,
and asked him to remain where he was a
few momenta until I could get away In
good shape. He seemed totake the hint,
and so I rid myself ot him. f ' '
, Bedding, California, Is a most desobtf
place, and I think the traveler would do
well to have an eye on 'his pocket-book,
and sleep none, for everything costs doub
le that of any other place on the route,
with less accommodations. We slept two
1 tours at thb point, 'starting at one o'clock.
Here we take the railroad. Traveling In
the night, of course one can net see much
of the country. At the approach of day
light we had a fine view of the Sacramento
valley. Tbe'day being clearedded to the
beauty of the scene, and as webowjed along
over the Iron track, we feasted our eyes on
California scenery the most .lovely In the
world. Farmers were everywhere busy,
and I counted ten gang plows plowing In
the field. Wheat here. now looks as it
does In Oiegon In April. ' As we approach
ed Oakland, we find a most magnificent
