A Grate iestin etlled Farnie.s r pecially Intereoted. In response to a call contained in the Statesman of this morning, of all the farmers attending the Annual Meeting of the Oregon Pioneers a larca. and enthusiastic compauy assembled, nntn- bermg over eiglity of the leading agrl cu.turalists of the State. The question to be decided was, what harvesting machines are the best and most economical for a farmer to buy. After carefully discnssinsi the various machines used by them, the entire assembly proceeded to nersonallv inspect the JicCormick Improved liar. vesters, Ksapers and Mowersnow on exhibition at the Agricultural Ware- louse of T. 15. Wait. A very critical inspection was made, by Us entirp company, of each of the machines. One gentleman remarked that tlie facility with which the reel couk be raised and lowered on tbe McCormick Harvester, to any required height, while the ma chine was in motion, added fifty dollars to its value over any other Ilarvester made. Another universal reiiark was, that the new patent arranirnent on this machine, by which ore jman can instantly raise or lower the eitire frame of tlio tnocMiiA , .- n uiu anuuier j fifty dollars over the 32arsb fir Trench machines. All agreed that the room t on the platform. ' and nnu.nw i : vating the grain was far ahead of all other machines. The same critical examination was given to the McCormick Advance Combination Reaper and Mower, and the 1 nze Mower, which resulted in the same universal commendation. Quite a number of farmers were present, who had used the McCormick machines in Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa, each of whom stated that a farmer who had ever used a McCormick machine would never be satisfied with any other. One gentleman remarked that no man ever had bought a McCormick machine that conld not get extra parts of it trom any of the agents even as far back as machines made a quarter of aceutury ago. Another slated that he had only one objection to the McCormick ma chines, which was, that they never wore out. Ai other funny farmer in connection with this sublet "irU moved frf.m Iowa, said that he had used one of the McCormick Reapers tor nineteen years and despaired of ever . . 1 Wearing it out. SO he dcterminiiil tn coll ? ulltnnluoa lo Feil out and leave the State to cet rid of it. and moved to Oregon where he bonght a Wood machine and got rid of that after using it one season by throwing it over the fence, and sent back for Lis old McConuick. It was finally determined by a unanimous vote, without a dissent ing voice, that the McCormick harvest ing machines ' aro endorsed by this meeting as the best and most economi cal for the farmers of Oregon to buy. A leading member of the Pioneer As sociation moved that as the McCormick was the oldest and the best, it be de clared the Pioneer , Reaper 4 of tbe .world. Statesman. Ike Conn, of Grass Ridge, cave us a call on Monday. ' I to Some Fish. On Sunday last two "young fellows" chased a fish down the Canal to tfce bridge near the residence of Mr. Luther Elkins, where, with the assistance of Mr. Elkins, they caught it. i here is nothihg specially remarKable about catching fish in the Canal, as that is a matter of frequent occurrence. The only remarkable feature in this case is the size of the fin-back. It was of the species known as salmon-trout, measured three feet m length and weighed twenty four pounds. Vm. Osborne, mentioned last week as suffering from white swelling in the left knee, on last Saturday suffer ed amputation f the left leg above the knee, Drs. S. A. t-roith, of Halsey. W. L. Wade, of Shedd, and O. P. S. Plum mer and D. Ii. liice, of this city, ner- lormed the operation. Mr. Osborue stood the otieration nobly, and will doubtless get along all right. The Drift Cut. The drift iust below the Crabtree ford on the Sautiam was cut last Thursday week, but the body of young Ralston was not found. Hopes are entertained that the body may yet Ihj found, lodged in the bottom of the drift, Mr. John Irving is havinct erected a neat and convenient dwelling on C'ali pooia, near Eighth street. The lower - - - y oasement, now completed, is of "r'ct' "heTTcompleted irwill be both elegant and convenient IW The nomination of Hayes for Presi dent gives assurancethat the country is sate, and as Wheeler (not of Xew York, but of ShetWi proposes to continue doing a square business on a narrow margin ol profit for ready pay, all may be happy yet. "Let us have peace" and prosperity. Alas ! too Tkck ! Every person we met last Saturday remarked : "Aw ful hot last night, wasn't it ?" After carefully and camly reflecting over the matter, we are forced to conclude it was. - All the water was run out of the Canal on Sunday and Monday, so that repairs might be made and a new flume put in. . . , : " ''Married.

The round trip will probably be two dollars, Frank Wood came down from Greenhorn mines on Monday, remain ing in ljie city a day or two. Sti?a wherries Are down to COc a gallon, but taste as well as though the price was higher. One of W. R. Canon's teams ran away on Sunday, wreckhirr thn ivurro-v . . which they were attichcd. Campmeeths-g At Roberts' bridge, last Sunday, attracted a large number of our citizens. The meeting holds over next Sunday, Mr. W. B. Donica has put on a mag nificent new coach on his mail line be tween this city and Lebanon. It in estimated there were at least 4,000 people at the Roberts' bridge campnieeting last Sunday. V The annual campmeeting of the Spir itualists commences to-day at Gervais, and holds to the 26ih. Hon. J. C. Avery died at his resi dence in Corvallis on the 17th inst, in his 69th year. The Sunday campmeetino- train, it is said, netted $10. The train was not crowded. ' Rer. I. Wilson, of Eugene, was in the city on Monday and made us a short call.
