The' northward' bound express train
experienced considerable difficalty, . on
Tuesday last between, Roseburg and
, Urpgswell. a few mpes aWve "Eugene
by auoountering several land slides, and
was delayed until a gang of Chinamen
could clear the way. J t arrived at Cresr
well 8i3f Uours behind time, and thiol r
ing all danger passed, started at full
speed. A few jnflcs-bejow the latter
atatfop, the timbers of a cattle guard
bad been washed oat, leaving the rails
undisturbed. The Joppjuotive, tender,
express car and one coach "jumped"
the guard, sticking to the track, but the
second poach went off, and affpr run
n'wg two lengths on tho ties, tumbled
down an embankment. This poach con
tained about twenty-five passengers,
about sixteen of whom, " wpre more or

Joomotive and tendep weye disabled ;
but, after some repairs, the train pro
ceeded slowly td Eugene, whore the
wounded, paengcrs were promptly
pared for, and a locomotive telegraphed
for from junctiou. . The train arrived
at Portland, on Wednesday at 11
o'clock, eighteen bturs behind time.
No censure is attached to any f the

was unforeseen., aptf attributable- tp thp

What They paQYE.-rTbe returns o
' .Je Presidential elepfjon jn lbjs ptate
show that Burnett rppejyed, at the June
election, 499 more votes than Grant
did in November. An examination of
(,he returns proves, beyond doubt, that
the charges of. fraud, made by the
Pcmocratic papers, are true ; and that
J'pliri Burnett had a majority of at least
00 of the legal rotes of this State at
r' c June plecUpp. In all of the counties
not affected by therailroad influence
and Ben. Hojladay's money, Grant re
ceived as large a vjjtp,.and in many in
stances a larger vote, than did Wlm
t .Tone election: and no doubt
polled the full strength: of the Bepubli
can party in Oregon.
Important Decision.tJ udgc Bon

act of Congress, granting the swamp
apd , overflowed Japds of. Oregon to tne
State, vested the title in the State ; and
Fnat Us right to them wag. "nflt forfeited
by the failure of the State to survey
and list- them- , . -- . .- f r

the removal of our office, the consc

Christmas coming upon us at the same
time, we are compelled f.o issue but a

IflES ESTIMATED - AT
About half pasf nine o'clock ;on Sun
day morning last, a fire broke out in
Portland, on the levee side of Iront
atreetnear Morrison which, consumed
die two blocks lying between Morrison
and.Whgton,.on tbitf sde of $Wt
street, and half of the bltck on the
west side f Front, between Morrison
and Alder streets: .Every effort was
made by the efficient -Eh Department
of that city; but not until this 'district
had ibeen' onsumed" vcre the;gal-
lant firemen able to stop the march
of the desolating demon. About noon,
a panic sieved, the people, who,, with the
calamities of Chicago and Boston so
fresh in their memories, seemed, to fear
that their happy little city was about to
share a similar fate. Assistance was tel-
eraphed for to Oregon City, Vancouver,
Salpm, Alhany and Eugene. As soon
1 . 1
as it was possible, engines arnvea
from the four first meutioned places, and
rendered valuable aid. Business houses
in the vicinity of the fire were soon
cleared of their stocks, and preparations
made for a general conflagration j but
at about two pclopk, 0.9 Sunday" after
noon, the fire was got' under control.
and confined to the district already do
scribed. The heaviest losers are S.J.
McCormick, W. Currier $c Son, Wood-
ard & Co., J. B. Congrp, 4- G. Walling
B. L. Stone and II, W. Gorbett. The
Occidental, St. : Charles, International
and American Exchange au,d Post
office bujdipg narrowly escaped de
struction, afid were saved only by the
well directed streams, of- the engines.
This is by far th,e most - disastrous fire
that has ever visited Portland, and
should at once arouse its citizens to the
importance ' of the organization of; a
more efficient system of protection, both
bv an increasp'iu the number of engines
and a more I adequate 1 "PHpply of wafer.
Much praise is begowed. upon the uero
ic efforts of Portland firemen, and sin
cere gratitude expressed for the prompt
mid emcient aid renoerea Dy nremen
from abroad. An explosion oppurped in
he basement of Woodard'a drug store,
and a number of firemen were seriously
injured by the fajjing walls.- Robert
Holman, ex-Chief Engineer ; J. F, Gal
lagher, Foreman of No. 4 ; John Moore
Sam Allen, E J. Porter and Thomas
Ryan were seriously, if not fatally hurt.
