ts 0 trasi That Ball. The Anniversary Ball of Albany Fire Company, on lost Monday night, was decidedly a "big thing," and passed off vrith the greatest cdal. No exertions vrere p aredby the fevero! committees to render tho affair a complete success. The walls and ceiling of Parrish's spacious Hall were mag nificently decorated rith flags, evergreens, 4 pictures, mottoes, inscriptions, etc., all appropriate to the day and the occasion. . The masic was euphonious and inspiriting, and the floor managers prompt all tho de tails of their duty, while the "boys" of the Company, atiired in their red shirts, dart ing and gliding through the mazes of tho .dance cr miogUng with the admiring specta tor, added novelty and picturcsqueness to the occasii3Ja. The youth, beauty and fashion of our fair city wcro fully represented, both auaagthe lookers-on and participants. The tables were beautifully arranged and boun tifully supplied with everything that would tempt the appetite of the most voracious gourmand or tho daintiest lady from a roast ed "shoat" to tho broiled wing of a hum ming bird. There were about sixty couples present, besides quite a number who were not couples malting, in all, perhaps the largest number of persons ever in attend ar.ee at a ball in this city. The receipts amounted to $197 25 ; the expenses were $117 25, leaving net proceeds of $80 which amount was paid into the treasury for the use of the Fire Company. In this connection we are requested to publish the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted by the members of the Fire Company on the evening of the 23d instant: j "Besotted, That the thanks of Albany Fire Company No. 1 are hereby extended to Mr, David Froman for the free use of his Hall, and to the ladies who so generously lent their aid in arranging the supper taMe. and to the citizens generally who furnished uwith such an abundance of elegant cata Lies for the occasion." Portland Dikectort. Wo are indebted to the publisher, S. J. McCormick, for the Portland Directory," for 1SG9. It is very tastefully and neatly printed, and is full of .statistical information concerning Portland ; and to a citizen of Portland is very valuable. Some of the facts it contains are of interest te outsiders. For example: It seems that produce, goods, and manufactured articles were shipped from Portland, during last year, asaouoting in the aggregate to$2,7S0, 000. ' The treasure shipments of Wells, Fargo k Co., from Portland to San Francis co, latvear, amount to $3,037,000. Daring 18C8, also, the bullion shipments c.f Messr.. & vid A Tilton were $540,850 90. The total p pulation of Portland is 7,980. Portland contains sisty-six licensed liquor dealers ; which Is a nut for Carter, of the Corvallts gazette, to crack. Oszcoir Flocb. We have been shown a letter written by a citizen of Albany, from San Trancisco, dated February 1G, 1809, frum-wkVch we extract the following relative tto Oregsn flour : "There was a committee appointed at the Merchants' Exchange, to inspect flour and let the people know what brands of flour would vtand the highest. The millers here fecl very sore about the Oregon flour being put in tb market and taking their custom ers away from them. They intend to do all they can to injure the Oreon flour, and by putting it at a low grade they think to run -it out of the market. There was a committee of three California millers appointed to ex amine th flour. Several Oregon brands and the California brands were given them. Xhey were all agreed on the best, and you may judge of their surprise when they had given the "Magnolia" the first, and the sSteaai Mills the second, (both Albany mills). They said that they never saw & sample of 31 jar equal to the Magnolia, and tney would ihave to shut down their mills if thev could -mt buy wheat cheaper, for they could not .make that quality of flour for the present It is said that Calisaya Bark has a pecnl i itr effect upon the liver, and guards the sys tem against diseases by exposure and irreg . ular diet. It is conceded that the great suc .eess of the wonderful Plantation' Bitters, .tvhich, previous to our late unhappy diEcul- ties, was found in most southern homes, was . owing to the extract of Calisaya Bark which it contained as one of the principal ingredi ..cnts. In confirmation of this we Jure ;hrdoneof our distinguished physicians .remark, that whenever he felt unwell from . ordinary dietetic or atmospheric causes, he invariably relieved himself by Plantation Bitters. We speak advisedly when we ; any that we know it to be the best and most popular medicine in the world. Irxvs. Loeal news is scare this week. The, weather is beautiful, and the farmers . are busy as bees plowing their fields and . sowing their grain, consequently very few of them have visited town. There is con siderable sickness in town, generally occa sioned by colds. Messrs. Riley Sc Co., butchers, are erecting a meat market on the lot owned by Hon. X. II.' Cranor, between Cowan's store and Webber's bath house. Messrs. Parrish & Mendeahall are closing ont their goods at auction as fast as possible, as they have leased their store room to Sen ders, Sternberg & Co., and are to give pos session to the latter gentlemen the first of March. -' '- - - - Ecreka!

Wo are compelled to an nounce to our readers the mortifying intelli gence that the opposition steamer 'Sucocss" has been sold to the old monopoly, the r. 1 , Company, and has already mado one trip under the management of its new owners. We also learn that the P. T. Company has already announced their design to raise the price of up-freights, at least, to a higher standard and wo have no doubt they will 6oon charge tho usual exhorbitant prices for freights both up and down tho river. Oh! for a Railroad ! Ferrt. We observe that Mr. A. Pcarce, proprietor of the Albany Ferry, has recently mado somo very substantial and creditable improvements at tho ferry 'landing on this sido the river, and which, ho informs us, has cost him a considerable sum of money j therefore, thoso of his friends who are in debted to him would confer a favor by pay ing up their obligations.

From the Charleston Courier, Aug. 29, 1807. THE LIQUORS 0F COMMERCE, Poisonous Stiralanls in tie Sick Room, THE VILE ART OF ADULTERATING alcoholic liquids was practloed in Groceo and Romo more than two conturics ago, and then, at now tho Medical Faculty denounced it, and lamented tho difficulty of procuring puro and wholesome stimulants for the sick. Hii rocnATEi called attention to tho tricks of tho Athenian Tlntncri four centuries before tho Christian Era. Ualkn, somowhat later, sternly rebuked tho wine merchants of Romo for tamper ing with tho julco of tho grape. Tbero was no distilled liquors la those days, and tnooy of tho subtlo poisons at present used by liquor mixers were uuknowu, but considering their knowledge nd opportunities, tho adultun-rs of tho "classic . . t. ! .1. f ages showed constueraoio aurounrs in lueir nv- furious calling. Lead, lime, gypsum, and soa watcr were put Into new wioo by tho Roman dual ers, aud it was boiled and lea to cool in metal vessels, by way of improTlng Us tasto and glring it transparency. To this day somo of tho Mvdit- ernncun wines are subjected to a similar process, All the wines of Europe aro tuoro or loss adultera ted before they leave "first bands," and as to tho stu'J commonly retailed in this country under the names of Port, Sherry, Madeira, Ac., Ac, aloe- Juice, decoctioo of logwood, powder of catechu, alsjin, plaster of purls, lead, litharge, carbonato of soda, oil of almond t, cider, and bad rum, may bo mentioned as among their ply as ant ingredients 1U ll.'l 111 lUUCUIICWUVH Ul J'll tlMVUB WJUVI m that the adulterators f this gencrnti'r particu larly excel. The tricks of tho Orcck and Roman vintners wcrcjtnere child's play to theirs. Strych nine, mlphuric acid, sugar of lead, Jalap, opiates, and a variety of pungent alkaUcaare among the delicacies that enter into tbe companion of ordi nary "bur room liquors," and some of them consist almost wholly of pornicious chemkats with i small admixture of unrcclifled spirits. No woo dcr, under such circumstances, tbl tavern brandy rum, gin and whtskv, carry death and madness in their tuio. No wonder, also, that plytician hart twt comjidtnei in the liyuorgof commerce, ai ore araid to tcit them. SttmulanU, however, are as necessary in tnedl cal practice as febrifuges, or cathartics, or ano- dynes, or alteratives, or any other of the recognu ed specifics for disease. Tbe great question is. euu a pnri ttimutant b had t We say it ean, TV assert that HOSTETTEIfS STOMACH BITTERS the alcoholic basis of which is the cstenco o sound Mor.'ngaUcla Rye, u prt a itimulant aw it is iwit.le fur A u mi it tkill V manufatturt. It is, however, sometbitig more and better than this to-wit, a judiciously mtdicnttd stimulant, in which tho qualifying iagredienU are the uett stomachic aperient, alterative, and anti-billion herbs, routs and gums. These vegetable constituents Modify and control the effect of the spirituous clt-Rcnts and render tho liiiu-rs the safest, mildest and most effective invig"rant at presets! In use. For tho m'aocholy come.juencts ulich opjoe from tho sale of unwholesome compounds bearing the names of the various spirituous liquors, tie powers that be are in sanjo degree responsible. Dcriring, as it docs, a Urge revenue frm the im pottation and manufacture of alcoholic beveravs it is macifcitly the duty of the General tJovro ment to protcol tbe peopte as tar a yutable agatn the iotruductioR of puion in'-t their dally drjck Still moro impralivs is the fctUgfttioa shield the sick from the peril of beusg killed or injured by jerr.ictous excitants, admit istertda mcii, Inspection and taxattua csgbt, io this matter, to go baud in hand, and in all cate ot adulteration lUe adulterated article instead of being taxed should bo dtttroyrd. Every tittcUro and extract containing, or purporting to contain alcobol, should be examined by competes; scientific tacn, and not permitted to go into tho market n&l.l Us purity has been aultioritativeiy eertiCed. The aniLary interests of the community should be paramount to the financial interests of the (iorcrn mi ntthe public boal'h being of infimUly more importance than the public revenue. Lut no such prutwetive supervision is exereiseJ either by the central jKwer at Washington or by tho State gov. ernmen's. lne internal revenue assessors and collectors simply demand their tax, knowing noth ing about the wtiolcsmene or unwbolr'mcnc of the article upon which it is levied ; the Custom House Collectors insist on payment of the duties required by law on imported liquor. but how much or bow little foreign poiton there may be in each cask or puncheon it is not their boiiie to ascer tain. Congress sems to have entirely overlooked its function of public protection In legislating on the liquor question. State legislatures have been equally remiss. Many of them have tried prohibi tion and failed. No one of them, so far as wo are aware, hs endeavored to mitigate tho evils of which they have ail complained, by instituting a rigid system of inspection. We should bo glad to seo such a system adopted as an experiment. It would at leat prevent un principled dealers from palming ojf upon the work ing classes, to an uniim'sted exl.-rit, the fiery fluids which fiil our nits, poor-houses, hospitals, lunalio asylums, and innumerable graves with miserable vtciirns Wero such a regulation fn force we should have to need to explain the nature and value of our preparation through the public press. The report of the inspecting officers would be our sufficient voucher a stronger advertisement than nar wo could trarne. Gladly would we welcome the official agents of the Government StAte or Federal to our factory, and challenge their closest scrutiny, their sharpest tests. An inspection law of the kind indicated would, if competently administered, be one of the most useful enactments ever placed on our statute books. It would be conservative alike of health and morals. When the British Go vernmsmt literally tendered cpipm to the Chinese at tho point of tho bayonet, compelling that unfortunate nation to make its election between hopeless war and a demoralizing apu qcaaiy poison, toe united Mates cried shame. We denounced the conduct of Great Britain as unchristian aud inhuman. So it was; but is our Government guiltless if t permits tho people over whom it should exercise a paternal jurisdiction to be poiioned in the dark t Tbe deadly properties of opium are known. It cannot be taken unwit tingly, under the supposition th'at it is something else. its tasto ana smell betray it, and all who buy it understand precisely what they purchase But this is not tbe case with adulterated liquors. lne taste, the color, tbe aroma of undetcriorated brandy, gin, rum sx whisky is often so closely simulated by the expert liquor mixer, that even connoisseurs are deceived, to say nothing of the (ignorant and inexperienced. Nothing short of scientific analysis can establish tbe difference be- a. . twoen the genuine and the bogus article, and tbe knowledge of this fact emboldeos the mixers to flood toe markets with their atrocious compounds. The sum and substance of the'whole matter is that the standard liquors of commerce, puro and undented, are not procurable in this country, and wo very much doubt if they can bo obtained, in the ordinary course of trade, on the other side of tbe Atlantic. Even if they could, they are not proper for invalids. Unrnixtfl alcohol it aot a medicine. The spirituous principal, however pure, must be toned and modified, and its exciting pow er subdued by skillful medication beSore it is fit to be exhibited as a preventive, a remedy, oc a re storative. This has been effected in IIOSTET TER'S BITTERS. The preparation is a perfect ly safe and efficacious tonic, alterative, corrective, and anti-bilious medicine nothing more and noth ing U$. , PREPARED AND SOLD BY Redington, Hostetter & PITTSBURG, PENNV Cor For sale by Druggists, Grocers and etore keep ers throughout he world. ; Redington, Ilostcttcr & Co., Agents for tbe Pacific Coast, H6 and 418 Front street.
