Many Inquiries having been made re
garding the late of the osnry bills intro
duced into the hut Legislature, tlie Farm
er furnishes the information required In Its
Issue of February 13lh. Two bills" were
introduced to reduce the rates of Interest :
House Bill No. 48. by K. H. Tyson, aud
House Bill No. 87, by Mr.- Bradley.' The
first was withdrawn or postponed indefi
nitely in favor ot the latter. After the
Second reading of If. B. 87, it was referred
to a select committee ot five, consisting of
Messrs. Bradley, Kamsby, Rinehart, Car
ter and Fountain. A majority ol this com
mittee made a report on the 5th ot Octo
ber, favoring 7 per cent, on special con
tract, while the minority! consisting of
Kamsby and Rinehart; reported lu favor
of 8 per cent, as the legal rate, with 12 per
cent, allowable on special contract. The
House by a vote of 16 to 37 refused to
adopt the minority report and then by a
Vote of 40 to 13 refused to amend the ma
jority report, only seven being absent.
Toward tlie close of the session the bill
came up for passage, and received 30 votes
out of a total present of 43, thus lulling to
pass because tlie State Constitution requires
thai a majority of the whole Legislature
imiSl be obtained to pass a bill. One more
vote would have secured its passage in the
House. Those voting against the passage
f the bill were : Messrs.Br-nnet, Beckley,
Cole, Chandler, Curtis, Campbell, Dorris,
Everts Gates, Gilbert, Hewitt, Lee. Pur
din, Rinehart, Reeves, Stearns, Thomp
son aud Wright 13. Absent Messrs.
Acton, Broback, ChSiitJwpfh, Caldwell,
Fretlanrtt Green, Huglies,HamiIton, John
son, Matiiibn, Stratton and YVebded 12.
It is-'beiieted that it some of those who were
absent had been, in their seats on the occa
sion, the bill iou'.d have passed the House,
Of the members of Linn county, one of
them, C. H. Hewitt, voted against tlie bill ;
Mr. Hamilton was absent, and the remain
ing members voted in tavor of the bill.
This usury matter was then and is now
one of great moment to the voters of Ore
gon, a great majority of whom are op
posed ta the present high rate ot interest,
as. so long as it remains unchanged upon
bur statute books, just so long will it re
tard the inaugurating and building u, of
manufacturing and other industries iu our
State. Just as long as capitalists can ob
tain twelve per cent, tor their money, they
will never Invest in enterprises so greatly
demanded in developing the resources and
wealth of the State, because legitimate
enterprises seldom pay so large a per cent

climate is not changing whether the Japan
gulf stream (the Kuro Shlwo) lias , not
broken loose from H .old coiirsc-and de
termined no longer to give life and
warmth to a land which refuses to recognize
the virtues of a Mongol race. It Is a
grave question, which demands investiga
tion. If this sea current has been trifled
with by some sportlVe submarine volcano
and induced to , alter its time-honored
eon.-se, then good-by to all future pians on
our "glorious climate." iVe shajl be un
able to show straw berries in February,
even under glass. We shall be foreclosed
Irom bragging about an exceptionally
warm day as the usual alleged winter
weather. Iu brief, we shall be complete
ly chnnfallen. There, is little difference
in latitude between this city and St. Paul,
Minnesota, or Portland, Maine. At the
latter places the mercury is given to the
custom of dropping down to thirty or
forty degrees below zero. So. if the cur
rent lias been deflected, this is what is in
store for us. The prospect is not cheerful
and we await the arrival of special news

A gloomy Cincinnati philosopher, who
has been sharpy observing tlie stars while
tlie most of his tellow citizens have beeu
killing hogs and packing pork, publishes a
startling prediction. He announces what
Is already well known, that In the latter
part of the yearlSSl there will occur a con
junction of tlw four principal planeUs "an
event that has never been recorded in the
history of tlie world,"' aud lie therefore
proceeds to prophesy in a diabolical strain
that would cost him his life in some coun
tries. He thinks that If the electrical ermi
libi iuni of the earth's axis Is disturbed by
this planetary conjunct;ou, the earth will
either "be shattered into infinite space
and fall in meteoric fragment," or that
all animal or vegetable life will bo de
stroyed by terrible upheavals and other
calamities too appalling to enumerate. The
San Francisco Chronicle comments upon
the above prediction as follows: "What
he thinks people ought to do ubout it he
neg'ecta to state. If there is any way to
postpone that planetary conjunction, the
matter should certainly be attended to.
Similar predictions have occasionally been
thrown out on the same subject, in the
past year or two, but in terms more vague,
by astronomers who liitxe some regard
for peoples feeling', and are backward abou1
scaring everybody to death. There should
be Immediately organized a Society for the
prevention of Planetary Conjunctions, to
which should be connected a subordinate
Society tor the Preservation of thfe Elec
trical Equilibrium of the Earth's Axis. If
the Cincinnati man's view3 are e6rree no"
time s'iouIJ be lost in organizing."
Thc progress of Christianity In Abyssin
ia is in the highest degree encourasnig.
Not less than 100.000 persons have renounc

the means of conversion will not com
mand the approval ot American Christians.
By order of King John, all subjects who
refuse to believe and lie saved have hoiling
tallow poured into iheir ears, and are other
wise ingeniously influenced to acquire a
change of heart. It is ouly occasionally
that a really .perverse slnnb Is found.
Whatever view may be taken of such
methods, the practical results are immense.
A formidable insurrection lias broken out
at tle chief city of Abyssinia, and the King
has fled to collect an army. He Is too
mild a mannered sovereign to please his
tumnltoite subjects. They remfcmbc'r the
rollicking days ot Old King Theodore; who"

probably, the disturbance. This seems to

The Eastern papers are (ulf of item's

The gold value of merchandise imported
into the United States tor the eleven months
ending November 30, 1879, amounted to
? 433,003,032; the merchandise exports of
the country for the same period amounted
to 1684,300,032. The excess of exports
over Imports amounts to 23(?,310.000.
Thts showing Is highly favorable to Amer

apparent. It is probable, however, that
