Addition to Odd Fellows' Library. Mr. J. Brlggs, LibraHnn of the Odd Fel lows' Library, informs tta ot the reception, on Saturday last, ot the following valuable works, all Contributed by the Smithsonian Institute i , "Exploration ol the Aboriginal Remains of Tennessee," by Joseph Jones, M. D., of X. Y. . 'Raidah Indians of Queen Charlotte Island, Straits of Fuca," by J. G. Swan, Port Townsend. v "Arclucological Collection of the U. S. National Mnsenm," Smithsonian Institute, Washington City, D. C. "Indians of Cape Flattery," by J. G. Swan. . . " "Smithsonian Report, 1873." "Brazil at the Centennial Exhibition, 1876." - "Brazil Biographicar" three volumes, by J. t. de Macedo. These are all valuable and interesting works, and the typography ODeqnalled. Oregon Sttle. California papers ever now and then refer, in rather contemptu ous term, to the "Oregon style of journal ism," as if it was not equal to the Califor nia style. From what we have seen of California journalism we are inclined to the opinion that if" said journals wonld copy or imitate tlie "Oregon style" of to-day more fully they would be greatly improved In interest and appearance, and wonld largely increase their subscription lists. We are certain that in a fair, unbiased crit icism, the journals of Oregon will compare favorably tn every way- with the journals of any State in the Union. Give us a rest on ."Oregon journalism," brother tar- heads, and take lessons from them in ty pography, make-tip and editorial ability. Change of Base. It was resolved on Saturday night to discontinue the meetings at the Court House, toi this week at least, giving way to the Woman Suffrage Associ ation, and hold meetings each night in two of the churches ot the city, hoping thus to keep up a good feeling among all classes and accommodate every 'one desirous of aiding in tlie good work that has been go ing on for weeks past. Gone to California Rev. Robert L. Stevens, pastor of tlje Episcopal church of this city, accompanied by his wife, an in valid, started for California Saturday last. This sudden removal was "made necessary by the alarming change In Mrs. Steven's condition during the latter part of the week. We hope that a change of climate may prove beneficial, and that Mrs. Stevens may soon be able to return in re newed health. Goi.fi Diggings. Placer mines ,f iave been located, by one or more parties now in this . eity, near Qtiartzville, recently. Very little prospecting was done, but -in that little good indications, sufficient to in duce old miners to stake off claims, were found. In a few days parties will leave this city tor the new diggings, and we shall soon know whether they will pay or not. Coming Back. Late news received from Joe Tyler I to the effect that Mrs. Tyler had not been benefitted by the change of cli mate, from Oregon to California, as had been hoped, bot rhat she' wafs Very moch worse ; so mffeh so, indeed, that it was thought better to return to Oregon again as soon as possible. Trie Cobbler's Last Words. "I feel that t wax weaker each succeeding day, and that I am fast approaching my end; a few more stitches, and all will be over; and I shall go where there is rest for the weary sole, nnd every sorrow will be heeled." Having said axel be wished, be calmly breathed his last. . Seed Oats. Messrs. Blain, Sox & Co., at Mammoth warehouse, have a small quantity of excellent seed oats for sale.
