itAMATio.-A number ot Citizens have

a Bar Room," tiie proceeds of the enter
tainment to be devoted to the purchase of
a Are bell.- Whether or not the Society
will comply with the request lias not yet
transpired. , The object is a worthy one,
and the numerous signers to the request
eviuce a full appreciation of former efforts
of' the Dramatic Society. v ' ' J-
The Minstrels. Ow ing to the lateness
of" the hour at which the performance by
the Corvallis Minstrels closed last night,
we cannot notice it as we otherwise would.
Suffice it to say, that each one did his part
well, and the whole entertainment was a
.complete success. -The dance alter the
performance was a very pleasant afiair,
and was highly enjoyed by a large number
of happy votaries of Terpsichore.
r';DilrBbswBia.'s Lecture- before : the
North School, yesterday afternoon, ,was
very interesting. The Doctor treated the
composition and working of the brain: in
an able manner. Miss Briggs furnished
instrumental, and the pupils vocal, music
for the occasion. ' A large number of visi
tors were present. . , .. ' ',.
Delegates. The following persons left

State Temperance Alliance, which -met at

which this important auxiliary of business V '
might have been retained in Corvallis. In
this city there are two or three gentle
men who are operators, and it seems quite
strange that one of them, at least, could
not have been induced to take charge
the office, in connection with his other
pursuits. " It is by no means complimen
tary, to the business - enterprise of her citi
zens that Corvallis should be entirely cut
off from telegraphic communication. A
city of 1,000 inhabitants unable to main
tain a telegraph line ten miles in length !
But, for the credit of our citizens, be it
said that the telegraph office was cut out,
and the instruments packed up before any
one was aware of the order having arrived
The business interests of this place demand
that a telegraph office be maintained here,
and we hope Superintendent Plummer
will allow the line to remain until our
.business men shall have had an opportun
ity of taking some steps toward the re-establishment
of the office. .
