NEW STEAMER llUOiES.
Wednesday was a grand day for Albany.
At a meeting ot Linn Engine Co., No. 2,
on Monday evening, Wednesday was selec
ted as the day on which the new steamer
would be received and housed, aud ot
course everybody was on the tij- toe of ex
pectancy. Invitations had been given, and accepted,
to Albany Engine Co., No. 1, and the
City Council, to join in the parade and
celebration. At 3:30 P. M. three sharp taps
of tbe fire bells called the " Twosters to
gether at their hall near corner of Broa'dal-
bin and First, wliere they were formed in
procession, headed by Albany Brass Band,
and marched to One's house, when the two
Companys in full uniform, with music
and flags and banners, marched to the
warehouse, near the railroad, owned by
Messrs. Sox,. Furry and Gaston, where the
new steamer had been put together, when,
after the usual formalities, "Albany Engine
Co., Xo. 1, was ordered to man tlie ropes
oi the magnificent little steamer, a Xo. 4
Clapp & Jones, said to be as handsome a
steam fire engine as there is on tiie coast.
The pioeession was then formed in the
following order : .
1. Ensign bearers Ones, C. Myer;
Twos. B. W. Cnndiff.
2. Mechanics' Brass Band.
3. Officers and members of Linn Eu
eine Coimaiy, No. 2.
4. Officers and members of I.inn Hose.
5. Officers and members of Albany En
gine Compaiiy, No. 1.
6. Albany AO. I llose company, wun
2s hose cart.
Tlie beautiful engine was made still
more attractive by the presence oi me
handsome little lady, Miss Bessie Cranor,
who occupied her elevated seat like a verit
able Fairy Queen.
As soon as the procession reached Sec
ond and I.yon streets, both fire bells rang
the general alarm, when he scene became
indescribably animating. The procession
was halted at Two's temporary quarters,
at corner of Ellsworth and Second streets.
wiiere a magnificent fl:ig twenty -one feet
in k'liirtli, made ot tlie best bunting, on
which was inscribed : "Liun Engine Com
pany, No. 2, 1S7C, iu large letters, was j
presented by the ladies through Sirs. H.
W. Stratlon, Tlie members of Linn C'o. ,
No 2, having been formed in front of tlie
Ilotie, Mrs. Stratton, holding the' folds ot
the flag (which had been attached to the
halyards ready for hoisting), in her left
bartd, graeefullv stepped to the front ot the
temporary platform erected for the pur
pose, and in a clear and distinct vo.ice.said:
Firemen of Lrxx Ekgixe Co., No. 2 :
The work tor which your organization has
been effected is both noble and dangerous.
In tlii work your lady friends wish to give
you some token of their confidence and re
gard. In the days to come it may be your
duty to face great dangers and even death
for our protection. Our homes, our lives,
our children may be exposed to the cruel
flames : we sliall expect that you will
promptly obey the signal ot alarm, and do
your lest to conquer the merciless foe.
And it may tall to tlie lot of some heroic
fireman to risk his lite to save some child
or woman. While you scale the ladder or
mount the tottering staircase, the prayers
of mothers, wives and sisters will ascend
to heaven that you may be shielded by an
arm mightier than your own, and restored
to tho-e who love yon. But as only the
brave are worthy to march under this ban
ner, we would rather bury you -wrapped In
its folds, than lie dishonored by unmanly
weakness or cowardice in the hour of dan
ger. We believe you to be good men and
true, worthv the name you bear and worthy
of our confidence and respect. Hoping
that your fires may be few and controlled
without serious loss of life or property.ahd
that no member of No, i will ever do aught
to dishonor himself, his company or those
tie loves, we your friends, wives and
mothers, present you this banner. Long
may it wave o'er the tried, the true and
vAt the conclusion of ?.Jrs. Stratton 'a
handsome remarks, the flag was ran tip to
the top of the flag-staff on the House,
while the red shirts gave three hearty
cheers tor Mr3. S. and tlie ladies connected
with tlie presentation. At the request of
Mr. D. M. Thompson. President ad interim
of Twostera, Bev. T. B. White, pastor of
St. Paul's M. E. Church South, received
the flag on the part of the Company in a
abort, elegant and feeling speech.
After repeated cheers for 'the speakers,
etc., tlie procession reformed and marched
up Second to Broadalbin, down that street
to First and up First to tlie cistern at tlie
intersection of Ferry and First, when the
procession was lialted, the steamer placed
cross ways of the street, aud the red shirts
drawn up in line and ordered to "stand
flrm"vhi! A. B. Pax ton photographed tbe
scene. After three photographs had been'
taken, occupying bnt a few minutes time,
tlie steamer was fired up and got ready for
biz. Tbe Directors of - Linn Company
selected Chief Engineer, Joe Webber, Wm
T. Everson, Engineer of Willamette
(Portland) No. 1, and D. A. Kyle, mem
ber ot Two's, as a committee to report the
test, which they did after' the trial was
over. - .
-The Twosters owe a debt of gratitude to
Mr. Wm. T. Everson, Engineer of Wil
lamette Engine Co., No; 1; " of Portland,
for the excellent manner in which their
new steamer doue Iter work on Wednesday,
Under his supervision she had been put to
gether, and the two previous tests made
The tests, on Wednesday were most satis
factory to the Fire Department, aud to the
citterns generally, and Twos are proud in
the possesion of at least ; as handsome a
steam engine as there is on the coast, and
one that, on her third . trial, made a better
record than any other. It was a grand day
for the people of this city, who turned out
en masse, lining the sidewalks, balconies
and windows on the line of march, and
gave evidence by tnelr cheers and waving
of handkerchiefs ot the deep Interest tbey
took in tbe success of the new steamer.
At tlie close of the steamer test, hose was
taken up, tlie ropes manned, and the
steamer drawn to and safely hooscd In her
house, "corner of Ellsworth and Second.
Two's then escorted One's to their house
on Second near Ferry, marching from there
to their ball on First street, near Broadal
bin, where resolutions complimentary tj
Mr. Wm. T. Everson were passed, when
the parade wa3 ended.
Appended is tbe report of tlie commit
tee appointed to measure tlie distance tlie
stamer threw water in the several tests :
Officers ani Members of Lin Em.
gbseCOMfast: Tlie undersigned Com
mittee appointed to report upon the work
ing of tbe neyr steamer beg leave to report
as follows :
The steam gauge showed 5 pounds of
steam 4 minutes from the time of start
ing tbe tire, and a working stream of water
was obtained in 9 minutes, with 2 guage
ot water in the boiler.
From 1U inch nozzle, througn iw reet
of hose, a stream was thrown 221 feet,
full spray 255J feet, tartnest epray zsa.
Two streams through 100 Teet or. nose
each, inch nozzle, 187J4 feet.
From Ochoco. Reports ' Irotn Ochoco
agree that they have had. a good season for
tatming, and some-ot the farmers have got
through with their work. The spring has
been the finest ever seen, the grass is way
up, and stock are beginning to -look fine
and fat. Father Douthltt Is busy ruiuing,
and although he had made no "clean-up"
up to April 2d, owing to Jhlgh water, yet
lie was in the highest spirits. Swarts lias
been having bad luck with ills mill, from
the oft breaking of the dam. Bill Clarke
is in charge of the mill. Ab. Powell's wife
is quite feeble with consumption, but is
still able to go around. Ed, Freeland is
not so well, having been afflicted ;with
chills. He was to g over to Little Willow
creek, says our informant, on the 3d of
April, to consult Dr. Baldon. On Sunday,
March 25th, Freeland and family came
within an ace of getting drowned, aud it
liappened in this way : The family were
in a hack on their way to attend Sunday
School. In the attempt to cross Mill
Creek, and when in tbe middle of tbe creek,
which was high and current swift, tlie pole
slipped from the neck-yoke, and the team
became unmanageable, and had it not been
that help was fortunately near, tlie
hack might have been upset, and a part
if not tlie whole family met a watery
grave. Another hack was secured and
driven in along side of Frceland's, and all
of his family transferred to it, but before
tlie second hack could be got out tlie
double-trees of said hack - were broken.
Tlie entire "party, hacks and horses, event
ually escaped, but lu a pretty wet condi
tion. About the middle of March Mr.
Hunsakcr came near losing ids team and
his own life in attempting to ford the
Ochoco. The very next day, Laun
Thomas met with about the same expert-:
ence with his wagon and team at the same
ford. He succeeded in getting the team
unhitched and driving them to tlie shore,
but the wagon, blankets cooking utensils
etc., all floated off, and be did not recover
tliem until the next day. Mr. Scott met a
similar experience in attempting to cross
at the ford above Pringle's, barely Saving
his team. Cattle buyers have Tlsited
Ochoco, paying 13 for three year olds
and $20 tor four year olds. They bought
of Webdell. Conant, Powell. Snoderly,
Uogue and Luckey, in Ochoco, besides
pnrchasingihrec or four hundred In Ante
lope. A case ot family trouble is reported
in which a man left his wife because she
went to a dance with another homfere.
Taking it all together Ochoco is a way np
country and the grass grows Jall.
Panoramic View of Albakt. Not
long since a r umber of tlie leading citizens
of this city promised Gen. C. A. Reed, of
Salem, a big benefit provided he would
add to his Centennial Panoramic View ot
the Willamette Valley and its prominent
towns, a view ot this city. Gen. Reed
went immediately to work, and lias suc
ceeded admirably, we are told, in transfer
ring Albany, as she now appears, npn tlie
canvas. It is pronounced, in connection
with the other views in" this valley, a grand
work of art, and we believe that no person
in this city will willingly miss seeing It.
The General painted the views above men
tioned for the express purpose of exhibit
ing them at tlie Philadelphia Centennial
so as to give the whole world eotno idea of
our grand and glorious country Oregon
Next Monday evening Geril Reed proposes
to exhibit this rare painting to the citizens
of Albany and vicinity at the Opera. House;
and we hope no one will tail: to visit and
thus aid in remunerating the,' General tor
his great work of love, on that occasion.
The doors will be open at 7 o'clock r. v.,
the curtain to rise at 7:30, sharp. Don't
forget Monday evening. May 15th, 1878,
at 7 o'clock, and secure front seats.

Tlie Two Record.
, We do not say, that every friend of the
Union is a Republican, but we do say, that
every enemy of tlie Union Is a Democrat..
: We do not say, tliat every Democrat fit
vored tlie success of the Soutliern Confed
eracy, but we do say, that no Republicans
were found hi the ranks of tlie rebel armies.
We do not say, that all tlie Democrats Of
the South have engaged lo the Kn-KIux.
and White League outmgesbut we do say,
tliat those who committed these outrages .
were Democrats - -
Tliere are many patriotic Democrats,-,
who desire to do right ; who. would not,,
knowingly, do wrong ; who favor the. ,
restoration ot their party to power, because ,
they honestly believe tlilt" it would best',
serve the Interests of the nation. If suchi
men were in tlie majority, and able to con
trol the party, but little danger might come -
from their ascendancy. -Hut tbey are iu a
hopeless minority, and could no more con--trol
the actions oftbe Democratic party;.
than ah infant could a ship at sea. Their-
good intentions would pass for naught;.-
their patriotism would have no weight ;
their advice would be laughed at. These
men belong, of right, to the Republican, . .
party. Prejudice has kept them out of i.ts
ranks. Tliey have stayed with, the- Demo,
cratic party, in the- vabi hope tliat they-
nilght restore' its departed fortunes, and,.
with them, its lost lienor.
We oppose the Democratic iarty, be-.-'
cause we see in its ranks tens of thousands, .
of men who are enemies to tlie Govern
ment, who make no secret of their hostili
ty to it, and its free institutions. - We f i-v
vor the Republican party because w $fdi
no such enemies in Us sank. Every Re--
publicaa is a proclaimed, friend, of tlie Re
public, and its freo btstjtutlons.. We read-,
ily admit that some Democrats could be .
trusted with power; but there areeo many-
bavfug a (XMitrolling kiihicnce wlio cannot;-
be trusted, tliat opposition to the -patty be-,
comes a public duty. -We as freely adnut:
that there are some Republicans who can-,
not be trusted with power, but there are-
so many who can be. who control their'
wisdom and patriotism, tliat the support of
tbe party becomes a high public duty.. In.,
