To Chief Engineer and Members of the

citizens ot Portland, hereby cordially in
vite you to Kirticipate, as an organization,
in the Celebration Ceremonies proposed to

Anniversary of our National Idepttiidciice.
Trusting this invitation will be accepted,
we would request you to please inform us
of your determination in the matter, giving
us the prolwble number by which your
organization will be represented, in order
Iliac tiie Marshal ot the Day may act ad
J AS. A. SMITH,
Coxcert and Sociaisi.k. The conceit
and sociable at the Optra House last Fri
day evening, for the benefit of the M. K.
Sunday School, was fairly attended, when
all tiie circtimstancea are taken into consid
eration. The night was very stormy the
most disagreeable we had experienced for
some time. Tiie concert was a success,
altliough tltcre had been little or no re
iicarsiug previous to the evening in ques
tion. Taken a a wliole, it was a very
pleasant occasion, and passed off very satis
factorily. Tiie receipts were very consid
erable, sufficient to liquidate the debt on
the organ f 50 and some other debts.
School Mketixo. The annual school
meeting for district Xo. 5, was Iteld at the
Central School-liouse in this city on Mon
day last, with more than the usual attend
ance Mr. -S. Montgomery was elected
School Director for the three ensuing years,
the vote being : For S. Montgomery, 30 ;
G. W. Crawford. 29; Win. Kumbaiigh,
15; scattering, 10. Tiie vote for Clerk,
to serve one year, was;- For A. X. Ar
nold, 35 ; C. E. Wolverton, 32 . J. D.
Brower, 23. Mr. Arnold was declared
duly el ectcd. This is the eighth time Mr.
Arnold has been elected Clerk of this school
district. A tax levy of $3,000 was Toted
to purchase ground and erect a scliool-liouse
In the upper part ot the city. Also, a tax
levy of f 1,100 was voted, to purchase the
lialf block adjoining the new school-house
recently erected in the eastern portion of
tlte city, and to improve tiie grounds for
J-bs Broken. On Monday a . little
4attgliter of Mr. M. Cowan, who lives about
three arfles from the ferry In Benton coun
ty. In some manner slipped from tiie Iiorse
site was riding, and falling to the ground,
brwke her right leg between the knee and
ankle. She had mounted the horse to ge
to the field where Iter father was plowing
te call him to dinner, when the above ac
cident occurred. Dr. B. Rice was call
ed in, and aeon had the fractured bone reset,
and the little sufferer is doing as well as
could he expected under tiae circumstances.
Looking oct ok rXo. 1. Complaint
has reached ns that onr County Ashcssor Is
perambulating the county, with Assessor's
books in one band and a "bridge petition
in Uie other ; atd tliat while thus ostensibly
engaged in assessing the county, the latgcst
portion of tlte time is used by him In talk
ing bridge" and 'eiectioiieeriug for tlio
offieeof Sheriff! This is the most economi
cal mode of electioneering, for one's self
tlmt we have lieardof, if trite. ' However,
taxpayers may object to paying an office
seeker's bills in this way.
We judge from what we hear tliat ex
School Superintendent Stites will get away
with tiie nomination tor Clerk, and Cap.
Shields for Treasurer ; but who will get the
nomination tor Sheriff is something we
don't know. There are several aspirants
among our Democratic friends, and tiie ex
citement is at fever lieat.' . May the best

Editor Register : Tiie school of Dis
trict Xo. 7. Linn county, closed on the
24tli, hist., with rhetorical exercises of over
three hours length, much to the credit of
tiie teacher. Mr. D. V. S. RekL as well
as tiie pupils in attendance. Tle scholars
were erect and healthful In appearance,
ami gave evidence ot diligent labor In study,
engaging In tlieir several parts with grace
ful ease, showing Jess embarrassment than
is usual on such occasions. At the close of
the exercises, appropriate remarks-were
made by Prof. T. L. Dogger and others;
when we separated with feelings of plea
sure and satisfaction, not usually enjoyed
between parents, teacher and pupils.
We think that the progress of this school,
during tiie past year, 1ms not been excelled
by any in this county. Mr. ReW has taught
here fourteen months, and la engaged to
continue the scltool. Our new seats, bought
of Mr. Fosliay, Albany, work like a charm
and we recommend tliein to all.
At the close of each day, half an hour is
spent In writing after the Spencerlan sys-:
tern, books, pens and ink being furnished
by the teacher at cost -the last term It
was only 25cts a scholar. Number of
scholars enrolled, 47 ; average attendance,
38,' . . If any other country district can
beat this, let them come to the front. We
would like to see more interest in the cause
of education generally, all over the county
and State, and would recommend that par
ents visit the schools and assist teaclttrs
by tlieir presence and Influence.-
