The expenditures of the Government

Greeley's Will. The Misses

test of their father's will, suffering the
loss of $10,000 (the Bum in question

'Tis ' Well. Brother Carter last
week devoted his editorial columns to a

are glad to see these manifestations of
piety and virtue in our cotemporary,

A Violation of law. Ben Holla
day's railroad bridge, over the Santiam,
at Jefferson, seriously , interferes . with
the interest of the people of that vicin
ity. . The stream is navigable for some
distance above the bridge, and the
structure not having been built with a
view to allowing the passage of boats,
farmers and mill men are compelled to
haul their products some distance below
the bridge, or submit to the exorbitant
transportation rates1 charged by the rail

The Oregonian, in acknowledging the
receipt of a copy of the Session Laws
and Supreme Court Decisions, says:
"The laws and decisions, are bound to
gether in a neat " volume of about six
hundred pages. . The ' printing and
paper are far better than have generally
come from the office of the State Prin
ter, and the book is altogether' a more
creditable production than its predeces:
Bors." ' How about the frauds of the
Democratic State Printer ? -
" Seventy in a Bunch." Corporal
Blood wants one of the fighting editors
of the Oregonian to enlighten him in re
gard to military - tactics in the. Modoc
country. Captain Kelly, in his report,
says that the " tog was so thick Lieut.
Perry was in much danger of being shot
by his own troops ; that the fog 'com
menced in- the morning and lasted all
day; ' that while pur troops were fight
ing ' over a circle of five miles in diam
eter,' seventy Indians were counted in
one bnnch.". The Corporal doesn't un
derstand how to reconcile the apparent
incongruity of the two statements.
On Saturday last, a large number of
the farmers of - Benton county assem
bled at the Court House, in accordance
with previous announcement, for the
purpose of organizing a Farmers' Club,
and taking other steps looking to their
interests in the matter of storing, sell
ing and shipping grain. ' E. Hartless,
Esq., was chosed Chairman, and A. G
Mulkey, Secretary. On taking the
chair, Mr. Hartless made a stirring
speech, stating the object of the meet
ing, and admonishing farmers that it
had beccme necessary to form a union
among themselves, in order to protect
their common interests. A number of
speeches were made, favoring the erec
tion of warehouses, employment of an
agent to sell wheat, and various projects
for advancing the interests of the farm
ers. All favored the organization of a
Farmers' Club, i,n which these matters
might be thoroughly canvassed, and
the mutuality ot interests among pro
ducers freely expressed. A committee,
consisting- of E. Hartless, C. E. Moore,
N. P. Newton, H. C. Lewis, and A. G,
Mulkey, was appointed to draft a con
stitution and by-laws for the govern
ment of the Club, and present the same
for consideration at the next meeting of
the farmers. F. Stillson was appointed
Corresponding Secretary for the period
of one month, or until the adoption of
a constitution and election of officers.
Dr. Bayley communicated a proposition
from the Willamette Navigation Com
pany, to carry all the grain raised by
members of this Club, to Portland, for
seven and one-half cents per bushel, if
insured the whole trade for five j Dars.
This offer was thankfully received, and
will be duly considered by the Club at
an early day. ' The best method for
storing and shipping grain," was made
the subject for discussion at the next
meeting. The meeting then adjourned
to Saturday, March 1st, at 11 o'clock
m. We congratulate our farmers on
their large and enthusiastic meeting,
and hope they may speedily adopt Buch
system of disposing of their grain as
will free them at once from the power
of the speculator and the extortion of
the freighter. Let them build their own
warehouses, store, sell, and, if practi
cable, ship their own grain to market,
without being compelled to pay tribute
to a horde of middle-men, who hover
over it from the time it leaves the sep
arator until it finds a . resting place in
the epigastrium of an Englishman. Let
them take -measures to stop the ques
tionable and odious system of " bor
rowing wheat," which, although under
the aegis of the law, smacks strongly of
susceptibility of being characterized by
a severer term than " borrowing." You
want no warehousemen, no speculator ;
but are . certainly capable, of disposing
of your productions to the greatest ad
vantage to yourselves. The proposition
of the Willamette Navigation Company
should receive careful consideration, as
it comes from an opposition to the soul
less monopoly which, for two years, has
held supreme control of the river. Let
every farmer turn out, on the first day
of March, and take an active part in a J
matter in which all are so deeply inter
ested, and which so materially affects
the prosperity of Benton county. . .
The First Thousand. Last Mon
day was the 62d anniversary of the
Hon. Horace Greeley. On" that day
the printers throughout the United
States contributed the 1 price of one
thousand " ems," set up by each, to the
erection of a monument in memory of
that honored member ot the craft. The
monument is to be erected by printers,
and composed of type metal, cortributed
by the offices of the United States. We
gladly contribute our mite, wishing the
noble enterprise success. All honor to
the American type-setters. :.

Whether the citizens of that section

These Indians rebelled against the ex
press provisions, of their treaty with

of plunder and murder, without the
slightest provocation, and now to propose
to treat with them this side of Tophet is
simply an idea too absurd to be enter
