Xf.w Steamer. The new steam fire
engine for Linn Engine Company, So. 2,
will arrive .to-day. A competent enfcineerl
has been secured, find the steamer will
soon be on wheels ready for action. As
soon as she can be got ready, the Company
will promenade through our principal
streets, giving an exhibition of what she
can do in the way of throwing water, pro
bably from one of the cisterns on First
street. For the present; we believe, it is
the intention to hou-e the engine on the
corner of Ellsworth and Second streets.
ITowever, the location may fee changed to
some-other point. " Iff the mean time,
look out for the engine. The whole Fire
Department is expected to take part in the
parade. . '
Burned. The Willamette Woolen Mills
were destroyed by lire on the morning of
the 3d. The fire originated in the attic
where considorable wool was stored, and
is supposed to be the work ot spontaneous
combustion. Loss estimated at $125,000 ;
insured for $00,000, $7,500 of which was on
stock. An average of S3 men were em
ployed, at a total monthly outlay of about
$33,500. John Kelly, foreman of the weav
ing room, in endeavoring to save the mill,
attached the hose and started the wheel,
when he was caught in the machinery and
before he could exlricate himself, his cloth
ing was torn ofFof him and he was severely
bruised and torn. W. C. Griswold, chief
owner of the mills, is in San Francisco,
purchasing stock. This is a severe blow
Oratorio op Esther. This beautiful
oratorio will be rendered . in this city, at
Pacific Opera House, on Friday and Satur
day evenings of next week, May 12th and
13th. under the charge of Major L. White,
assisted by forty ladies and gentlemen of
Corvallis. On the evenings 01 the 20th
and 21st, we believe, this grand ortario
was rendered in a most satisfactory man
ner at Corvallis, as many of our citizens,
who were present on the first evening,
can testify. We have no doubt that the
coming entertainment will be much better
than any previous one, because the com
pany will have the advantage of a larger
and much better hall than tlie one used at
Corvallis. The Opera Ilousewill be fitted
up lor the occasion, nixd the seat accom
modations greatly enlnrged, so that all
nay enjoy the feast of song offered, with
satisfaction and real enjoyment. No oue
should tail to atteud.
Ei:ori.Att Monthly Meeting At the
regular monthly meeting of Linn Engine
Company, No. 2, Dr. G, W. Gray, Presi-
dent, was granted three months leave of
absence, and D. M. Thompson elected
Pi-esidenti interim. Messrs. J. K. Weath
erford, L. C. Rice and D. M. Thompson
were elected members of the Board of Fire
Delegates. ' M. S. Mouteith was granted
two months leave of absence, as be intends
visting the Sound. 'The resignation of W.
II. Parker was granted. Jndge Baldwin
was elected an honorary member of the
Company. Att invitation was received
aud accepted to participate with Albany
Engine Company, No. 1, in' a May-day
picnic on the 23d. By vote ot the Company
the wish was expressed that our new
steamer si ton 'd be shipped to Albany im
mediately on its arrival at. Portland, and
be put together at the Messrs. Sox & Co's
warelioue, generously tendered by said
firm for that purpose.
Picnic. Tlie seventh annual picnic of
the Onesters comes off on tlie 23d, at
Ilacklcman's grove. Swings will be put
up, croquet and base ball grounds arranged,
and, to highten the interest, a fat man's
race will be indulged in, with suitable
rewards for the winners In the croquet and
base ball matches, and iu the fat man's
race. An oration will be delivered, and
vocal and instrumental in usic will be fur

given at tlie Opera House for those in

The Republicans of Linn county liave
presented for their votes one of the best
tickest ever put forward y a County Con
vention, and no ticket, we believe, ever
met a more hearty response from the Re
publicans ot the county. Every man upon
the ticket is a host in hiro3elf, possessing
the necessary qualifications as to ability,
honesty, - sobriety, integrity and Industry,
and being in full sympathy with the people
aid in forming a ticket that every honest,
conscientious man in the county can freely
support, no matter wlut his party pre
dilections maybe. Xearly the entire ticket
is composed of farmers, the bone and sinew
of the country, 'men of more than ordinary
talent,, whose purity of life and chaVacter
have marked the in as peculiarly fitted tor
the positions to which their neighbors and
fellow citizens have called them. With
candidates whose ability, integrity, and
general fitness for the positions are unques
tioned, it requires no prophetic ken to pre
dict their election in June. All Republi
cans have to do now is to secure as large a
majority lor the whole ticket as possible,
by faithful work until the day of election.
To this end let every honest, fair minded
voter put his ulioulder to the wheel, and
aid in shoving the car of progress and re
form along. '." : ' . ''

Lebanon, May 2d, 1S7S.
Editor Register : As your corres
pondent from these parts failed to connect
last week, I presume he is completely ab
sorbed in the perplexing question that just
now occupies the attention of farmers
generally, viz : how shall I meet my Obli
gations, If this weather continues, and we
fail to raise any grain ? And while they
are thus exercised about the wherewith to
support their families, let us who are far
mer's wives, unite with them in preparing
for emergencies, by learning how to make
the most of whaf we may have. To thi
end I undertake to make a suggestion to
the women who read your paper, provided
of course that you , in such perilous
times as just before election, dare to pub
lish anything bordering on . "Woman s
Rights." But don't be frightened. I'm'not
going to inflict on you a homily on woman
suffrage, or anything of that kind, I only
wish to open the subject, hoping to hear
it discussed by abler pens tliaji mine. Why
do the woman of the country . so seldom
write for the paper? Is it a fact (if so it is
a most lamentable one), that they are kick
ing iu intellectual ability to comprehend
the issues of the day, or so wanting in edu
cation that they cannot give an intelligent
view of tlietn ; or are they so engrossed, hi
the daily routine of domestic concerns, as
not to realize'they have any duties or in
fluence outside their own house ? An in
terchange of opinion among farmers is of
great benefit, in giving them a proper un
derstanding of the actual needs and condi
tion of the country, and assisting each other
to Intelligently worc for the greatest good
ot the whole, and Is not tlie rule equally
applicable to tw ? If we would give each
other the benefit of experience, and new
ideas on the best manner ot conducting the
domestic economy, it , would be a great
advantage. We- could thus add to the
health and happiness of our family, by
knowing how to prepare for them the most
healthful and appetizing food for on us
more than the men rests this responsibility.
I know the duties of a housewife are multi
plied and arduous, bi.t we do many unnec
essary things and by leaving them off, we
can find time to not only read wliat
others write, but take a part ourselves by
trying to give others the benefit of our
observations in matters pertaining to the
Now, Mr. Editor, for fear you will think
a woman's pen, like lier tongue, wlien once
set going never knows when to stop I
will here leave the subject to others, hoping
you will allow us a little space in your
paper to tell what we know about making
bread, preserving, pickling, etc., subjects
more practical and perhaps more useful to
farmer' wives, than whether they will be'
allowed to vote,' Mrs. Dunnlway and Co.
to the contrary notwithstanding.
"Farmer's , Wife" is welcome to our
columns, and we extend an Invitation to
all our lady readers, married or singta, to
write for the Register, on the subjects
indicated in the above communication, as
frequently and regularly as opportunity
may offer, assured thay they will always

Surprised Rev. J. Bowersox, pastor
of the Evangelical Church, and family,
were agreeably surprised last Friday even
ing by their friends. The Rev. gentleman
and wife returned from singing school at
the church to their home, only to find It
in the possession of a concourse of people,
who had brought with them quantities of
"grub" of the wayupest kinds, as well as
some very acceptable presents. The sur
prise was most complete, and all the more
enjoyable on that account.
As an indication of the "money" there
is in land on this coast, we cite a recent
operation ot David Jacks, of Monterey
county, Cal., who owns a farm often thou
sand acres, which was purchased a few
years ago for$10,000. He last year plant
ed It in wheat. 1 The yield was fifteen cen
tals per acre. At one dollar per cental
this gives a crop worth $150,000, ot which
twenty-five per cent., or $37,500, Is net

In regard to tlie European grain market,,
the Mark Lane Expren says the activity'
caused by the Easter holidays is not yet
over. Tlie transactions are limited to sup-1,

the absence of everything like speculation
tended to contract operations, tlie supply
keeping pace with the demand, and the
stock diminishing slowly. The continen
tal demand continues, and has taken sever
al cargoes wh'ch arrived at calling ports,
but has not showu itself to any extent.
Stocks in parts of Germany and France are
reported short; but latterly pnrcliases liavo
been made by several grain markets from .
Russian and" American ports, whepoe uiV
rect 6liipment are made. Trade is inani
mate. The fine weather1 depresses the
market and in some' Instances" holders havo'
yielded slightly, but the decline is scarcely'
perceptible. Maize Is lower under largo
supplies. The French demand occurred
very opportunely for the sellers of oats.
In tlie country markets flour Is fairly steady,,
but the London trade is dull. There has'
