Camp Polk, Julys, 1876.
As a line from tha wayfaring man some
times keeps tbe (printer's) devil at a tem
porary distance for a short time, we en
close a line for the Register.
We left Albany ou the 28th of June des
tined for Ochoco, with Mr. J. Aorcross,
and after two days spent In branding
cattle, etc at Peterson's Butte, we wound
our way up the Santiam, ovf dusty roads
and bot weather, In the rear of three hun
dred head of horned cattle. We were
truly surprised to see the country looking
so prosperous such fine looklnjr fields of
grain, aud meadows, especially gardens.

were at the same date last season, that one

Ou reaching the toll-gate we find the

as there has already passed of stock about
two thousand horned cattle and as many

horses. From this point on to the Moun

patches of snow, aud mud-boles, still exist;
however, much credit Is due to Mr.
Hogg's agents, for energy and promptness
hi removing obstructions and keeping the
way in as good condition as possible.
The evening of July 3d found us in camp
at Fish Lake, and the mountain-side on
the east, overlooking the lake on the west,
was dotted over promiscuously with tents
and wagns of divers kind?, according to
the owners tastes or elrcnmstances of the
occupants. Some of the parties were trayel-
Ing one direction aud some another, and
many seeking pleasure and recreation of
both sexes and all ages, from the old men
to the small children. The evening was
Ciilm and clear;" the moon shone brightly
orrr the onivering lake ; the cheerful song,
the stories and anecdotes, games sue)' .fre
quent boisterous laughter," whiled" away thj
iiottrs or night till late, ana many were
retiring to rest the last centennial night.
when suddenly a rushing, thundering
tornado-like sound, that almost seemed to
shake tlte mountains, made every ont
begin to look lor a place of safety. A
large drove of cattle In a corral near at
. had had taken a scare from tbe approach
likely of some wild animal, and were on a
regttktr stampede aound the euclosure,
over logs, brush and rock, and, seemingly.
every conceivable thing in the mountains
that would add to the terrifying confusion.
However, it lasted but a few minutes, and
by the timely presence of some of the
drovers in charge, all was soon quiet as
before, and a general preparation for sleep
was In order. With a few entertaining
stories ot cattle stampedes, from a drover
of much experience and superior ability
and understanding in the profession, whose
whole sensibilities, whether sleeping or
waking, were ever alive to notice the move
ments ot horned cattle, our friend arranged
his blankets near one of those mammoth
trees common in the mountains where, for
safety, had been deposited our camp equip
age, saying the stock would stampede every
half hour during the night, and a big tree
was a big thing In such extremes. Very
soon all was quiet and many asleep, ; but,
true to the prediction ot our drover, the
cattle scare was repeated, the same terrific
noise and frightened populace, but as be
fore, was soon over, and all was still bnt
one. who continued quieting, "Who-ah,
A-ho-ah, wlio-ab," coming directly from
the large tree. , Every one looked' and sure
enough tbe hero of the night, who ITaigbt-
led) to be ran over by scared cattle had,
with one bound reached the large tree.
with outstretched arras, hands holding on to
the heavy bark of the tree, legs astride, one
foot planted on & sack of flour and the
other In a frying-pan which contained the
remnants of our evening meal offish, the
inevitable hickory, his only garment, the
pattern of which had been cruelly abridged,
ont from under the - edges of wagon
1 be re were . too . many , eyes , peering
covers and tents, and from behind trees
and other hiding places, for the stillness.
An outburst of laughter that made , the
mountains echo and the lake qniver to its
very shores, broke the spell, an the som
nambulist awoke , to find himself the ob
served of all observers, wboretiied with
out even his bow to the audience. ' Brief
speeches and comments with simultaneous
roars of laughter were idulged . In again
and again, till we think the most courage
ous wild beast would .have dreaded to
again disturb the camp." Thus was closed
out at Fish Lake the last hour ot the great
American Cenutenlal year. Twilight hi
the east soon announced the approach of
day. A few reports from Henry rifles,
a hasty break fasti and the roar ot cattle
whips, and the people dispersed, . every
man his way, and with thankful re me in
b ranee of the events of tbe past hundred
years, we pass on to -
CAMP FOLK, . , . .
.where little remains to be seen ot the
military g'ory and labors: of Captain
Lofollet and tils men. A number of large
fallen pines and a part of about two mdd
cabins built higher and used for barn pur-1
poses oy me present occupant, tr. n niu- 1

brick, belonging to Jas. II. Foster, was dis
covered to be on Ore. Tbe alarm was
given and the fire department promptly
turned out, but ' the Chief aud other citl-
sens succeeded in extinguishing the fire
with a few buckets of water. The fire,
from all appearances, was the'Worlt" of an
incendiary. Paper apparently soaked with
coal oil, had been placed in the back room
under a couple ot bundles of shingles, and
nrobablv a slow match applied, with the
intention to ignite in the dead of night.
Providentially the affair was not well
managed, otherwise the three wooden
tenements between the ' two bricl3 A.
Carothers & Co. on tho west, and Fox
Bros, on tbe easi would have "gone up."
This fire is not the first frnits ot incendiar
ism in this city, and although parties have
been "suspected," no arrests nave ever
been made. Isn't it high time that our city
authorities took some action In fl:e matter,
looking to the apprehension and punish
ment of the guilty parties ? Tlie Council
might at least offer a reward sufficient to
induce a good detective to look into the
