Tha most exciting time erer witnessed
on the Pacific coast within the memory f
the "oldest Inhabitant," came off In this
vicinity on Friday last, December 20lh
It was time long to be remembered by
all who knew anything about it. It was
the day set for the match bunt between
the vtt teams ot prin'isticsl ramrods, tlie
one team commanded by that veteran In
tiian warrior and bear banter, Gen. M-V
Brnwriand the other by. Coll. Van Qev,
who runs the boss shooting-stick' in .this
office. Tlie weather was unexceptionable
for hnntins (a eood warm stove in ont of
the wet), and the gentlemen composing tbe
two teams proceeded to put In the time as
Suited them best. And scattereeyllong the
lakes, swales, rivers, creeks, canal and

bandaome forma of eleven typos busy gath

their pocketbooks) ; everything being
'game'' that came within their reach, ft
was a busy nay, and aithongh the wind
bowled over tlie prairies and through the
pathless woods, and the cloudlets wept a
continuous weep over the awful slaughter
committed by the professors of tbe shooting-stick
and mallet, sometimes called
galley slaves," yet nothing daunted, tliese
brave men breasted ami backed up to tlie
storm and gained a victory in fact, a
victory, in point of 'points,' unexampled
iu modern history. We feel prondof the
craft of tills city. A more energetic, per

It depends on whom a bluff la run.

man that is centring some way to get tlie
best of another and thinks he has got him
in a tight place, U the easiest man in the
world to bluff off tor example, as the
stage en route for Marion from Scio was
driven upon tbe ferry boat across the Santt-

alights from the stage arid waters bis team.
The ferryman not being on good terms

others, thinking this a good opportunity
to show himself, draws a knife from his
P01 ThJ his Intentions were remains
a mystery, but quick.-as . thought Mr. S..
the driver, drew from his coat pocket an
old peculiar pipe, at the same time brought
it to bear upon , the. ferryman, saying.
"D you, draw a weapon on me,. will
you ?' "Don't shoot," and a plash of
water was beard.' By that' time the pas
sengers roared ont in laughter to see Mr.
DM the ferryman, in the river np to his

Tbe ball given by Albany Engine Co.,
No. 1. was well attended, and proved an
un usually pleasant occasion. The decora

Mr. Kick Sprenger and wife, tvbo arrang

returned special thanks for their efforts
in behalf of the Club and its guests on tbe
occasion. After supper quite a number of
speeches were made, provokativeot a good
deal of metriment and jolarity. It was
a season ot fun, and the only regret about
it all is, that there seems little show for
another similar supper very soon.
A RattrOMl to liknMn.
The people ot Iebnnon are rejoicing In
the prospect of earlv railroad connection
with Alliany.. Tlie O. & C. Railroad Co,
proffers to put down the rails and furuish
all tlie necessary locomotive, cars, etc..
if tlie citizens will grade the road and fur
nish the ties. Just as soon as the road is
ready for the track, the Co. promises to
have it laid, with new steel rails, and the
road throughout furnished in first class
manner. The work, of grading will be a
small matter ; the only expense being tbe
ties, which will cost probably 6.000. V
understand tbe people interested have re
ceived the proposition favorably ; and if
this be- trite, and the people resolve to do
the part assigned tliem, the snort of .the
iron horse will be heard on the streets of
Lebanon within a few months. We are
led to believe that tlie road will not stop
at Lebanon, but will be continued on over
the mountains-jnitll it makes connection
with an Eaetirir- line. We don't snpposfl
all this will bcMCdtnpitehed In one season.
but in the rear future a road with Eastern
connections will be built, taking in Leba
non and this city, and making its western
terminus on the Pad He ocean, as we be
lieve, at or in the Vicinity ot Yaqtri&A Bay.
A road to Yaquiaa Bay Is the great desid
eratum,' and We can have such a line by
the right kind of work. 1 .

performance ... was good . enough, and kept
tbe audience In a continuous roar. The
