Albany, Nov. 13-v8n9ml
Tlie Republicans of this city met in con
vention at tlie Court House last Saturday
afternoon, anil were called to order by
Coll. Van CIee, Chairman ol tlie County
On motion, Capt. Matthews was elected
Chairman, and X. Baum, Secretary.
. Nomination of delegates to attend the
Republican County Convention being in
order, the following gentlemen were placed
In nomination : Messrs. Ike Froman, II
Ramsey, X B Humphrey, R Conn, G F
Simpson, Chas Wolvertou, D M Thomp
son, J W I'ropsf, Sam Miller, Coll Van
! Cleve, X Bond, David Fronian, R Romiue.
A B Morris, G XV Gray, J II Foster, D T
Wallace, L Fliun, S Froman, X Baum, S
The vote was by ballot, the candidates
receiving the highest number of votes cast
to be declared the choice of the Conven
tion, and resulted in the election of the fol
lowing named delegates :
Ike Froman, X B Humphrey, R Conn,
G F Simpson, C E Wolvertou, D M
Thompson, J AVPropst, X Bond,l Froman
and G W Gray.
On motion, Chas. Wolverton was declared
the choice of the Convention for the office
oi Justice of the Peace, and O. W. War
ren for Constable.
The Convention was largely attended,
and very enthusiastic. Albany pecinct
will give a greatly increased Republican
majority in June lor the Republican ticket.
Remember that. .
Of the nominations made by the Demo
crats, I can say but little, knowing two of
tiiem personally, viz : " A. W. Stanard and
J. K. Weatherford. I can say that they are
men of strict integrity and as honest and
honorable as any with whota it is my good
fortune to be acquainted, and if elected,
although Democrats they will be an honor
to their constituency. .
Judge Johns has tlie reputation of hav
ing made a good County Judge while in
office before, and of being a good judge of
law, but I am" reliably informed that the
books and pnpers of Judge Taud'y (who by
by the way, has been required to step
down and out to make way tor a man who
docs not drink quite so much, and who is
more lavored by 1.1s political friends), are
in far better shape and condition than
those of any one who ha3 ever preceded
him in oflice, and far better than those of
the present nominee during his for.ner
term. But of this I may not be able to
judge, and speak only from hearsay. But,
so it is, they played a bluff game on Judge
Tatdv, and won in the convention, but
whether they will be able to Win before the
people is more than I can say.
In the contest the Republicans propose
to work, and influential men, who, for
years have done nothing, propose to put
on their armor and go forth and fight
valiently to redeem the county from Demo

This is the best turnout ever known at a
precinct meeting here, and means business.
Already the Democrats have given up Leb
anon preciuct. We hope that' no pains
will be spared on the part of the delegates
to select the best men in the county, for
we have them, and if they can be placed in
nomination we stand a good show to elect
them. Our meeting was harmonious,
pleasant and satisfactory.
-A marked improvement is noticeable in
the business rpialirluations ol our farmers
iu this vicinity, owing to the education re
ceived 'in the Grange organization. We
are glad to see this, and to know the fact
that, although a farmer, ' a man's a man
for a' that." -
The weather is quite discouraging, and
some are becoming alarmed on that ac
count, and we would be, were it not for the
never failing promise that seed time and
harvest, day and night, shall continue until
the end of time. Let us plead the fulfill
ment of the promise, expecting that it will
come, and use more diligence iu the time
that may be given, and trust the balance.

The First Principle.
Uaekisbcko, April 19, 1870.
Ed. Register : By your permission I
will now proceed to give you the first
principle In penmanship, as demonstrated
at Liverpool, by a sweet young sprig -of
law, fresh from the Ilarrisbutg court of
justice. The circumstances are as follows :
The young "sweety," thinking himself
far enough away from Albany that he
need not act dignilied, concluded he would
teach a writing school, being assured that
he was well qualified, having had ten years
practice scratching with the chickens. So,
after due notice, he met the youngsters of
the village for the purpose of organizing
his school. After settling the noisy young
sters so that big "I" could be heard he
grappled a piece ot chalk, and, with a digui
fled air, approached the blackboard with
this declaration : "I will now give you
the first principle." Almost instantly
whiz went the chalk around a halt circle ;
butlo! there was no visible impression.
"Sweety" looked astounded ; but with
revived energy he tried again, without a
satisfactory result, at which all the hood
lums simultaneously roared out, "give us
the first principle." "Sweety," In an
agonizing manner, exclaimed, in accents
sufficiently loud to be heard above the din
of the noisy crowd, " will make tiiat first
principle or bust.'''' With a fixed determi
nation, and a smile indicative pf success,
he once more vigorously applied the chalk,
which was answered only by the deafening
shouts of "give us the llrst principal." a
The simple fact was that one of the hood
Inrus had applied a meat-rind to the black

Ed. EEGiSTEfi: llalsey precinct lias de
cided to give an extremely good account of
herself next June, and the shadows of de
feat has already begun to fall upon the old
(don't break the constitution) rebel element,
that leads and controls the Democratic par
ty in this count-; their faces already grow
long; soon their limbs will shake as with
the palsy, and as the time draws nigh,
their knees will knock togetlier and by
my faith iu the intelligence, honesty and
resolution of our people, I believe tliat
next June the old Union lance, iu the firm
grasp of Republicanism and loyalty, will
smite them deep under the fifth rib evpn
unto death. "
The meeting at llalsey on hist Saturday,
was one of the largest and best attended
primaries that I recollect ever having at
tended. The contrast between this and the
Democratic primary held on the previous
Saturday, was painful (to the Democrats) to
contemplate; ami it straws indicate which
way the wind blows, how is it when whole
sheaves of wheat come driving through the

Before adjourning the following resolu

A Close Call. Adrian Comley, aged

ed to cross tlie Willamette from near the
saw mill in a skiff. When but a tew rods
from the shore one ot the rowlocks broke,
letting the boat drift against tlie boom for
holding the logs belonging to the mill. In
attempting to stop the boat by catching
hold of a rope attached to the boom, the
boat was capsized, throwing Adrian' into
the swift running waters. The young man
caught hold of the rope as soon as he came
to the surface, holding on with a deatlt

obtained another boat at Pierce's ferry,
some distance above. When taken from

High Water The Willamette lias
been on the rampage during the week,
overflowing the bottom lauds on the oppo
slde of the river from this city, creating no
little trouble and loss. So fai Mr. Perry
W. Spink seems to be the heaviest loser,
the water having floated off several hun
dred cords of wood he had piled up over
there. The Calipoola , has also been up,
and Dr. Jones and Thos. Monteith report
the loss off quite an amount of cord wood
each. Mr. C. C. Kuhn, who owns a farm
between the Calipooia and Willamette
rivet's, west of the city, reports losing
eighteen head of Angora goats, valued at
about- $200. Others have doubtless lost
stock over Iu the bottoms.
