SfTH CORVALLIS 8CHOOL MEETING.
The annual school meeting of District No.
, was held last Monday, and called to
aer Dy Woodward, chairman
The minutes of the last annual meeting
were read by the Clerk, S. L. Shedd. The
Clerk then submitted his annual report,
from which we make the following extracts:
No. of persons residing in the district, be
tween the ages of 4 and 20 years, 118 males,
107 femamales ; No. of pupils enrolled in
public schools, 65 males, 36 females. No.

No. of schoolhouses, 2. Value of school
houses and grounds, 1,600 ; estimated val
ue of school furniture belonging to school
house, $50 ; apparatus, including maps,
charts, etc., 30. Average salary paid male
teachers, per month, during the year, 75 ;
female teachers, S25. x umber of legal o
tsrs in the district, 131.
R. W. Brock was elected to serve as Di
rector for the ensuing three years, vice
Joshua Mason, whose term of office expired
una date. b. L. Shedd was re-elected
The next order of business was voting for
or against a two mill tax for the purpose of
furnishing new seats and desks, anil making
necessary repairs to the North Corwallis
schoolhouse and grounds, which resulted in
favor of the tax.
The new Direator and C!erk were duly
qualified, after which the meeting adjourned.
A GROWL, COMPLIMENTARY.
In the San Francisco Chronicle of Februa
ry 20th, much dissatisfaction is expressed at
the me igerness of appropri itions m-.cb for
California, and for the first time within the
recollection of the "oldest inhabitant, " Ore
gon is said to have received double the amount
of California. No higher praise could be
desired than this, by the friends of our Sen
ators anil Representatives, who have thus
gained for Oregon a merited share of govern
ment aid in the improvement of her long
neglected harbors and river s. Oregon will
receive a large immigration the coming sea
son ; this, with the building of several lines
of railroad, will make times better, and our
people can look forward to 1S79 as a "long,
thrifty year. " Then, ' 'croakers to the rear,"
and let all the active, energetic public-spirited
citizens of Benton bury all animosities,
clasp hands over past prophecies of failure,
and make a strong, determined effort to
complete the ten miles of Yaquiu3 Bay rail
road, and give CoL Hogg a chance to ful
fill his agreement and connect the Willam
ette valley with the coast. The argument
once so common, that the farmers could not,
by this route, find a foreign market is now
no longer tenable or even an objection.
North of Cape Foulweather is a natural har
bor of one hundred acres or more, with for
ty feet of water at low tide ; this is better
than San Francisco. Yon could ask nothing
safer. The saving of grain shipped by this
route will amount to millions in a few ye&rj
to say nothing of economy on incoming
freights, and the development of the country.

THE LAWS AND JOURNALS.
The Oregonian of February 26th gives the
following neat notice of the manner in
which the work of the last session has been
done. We endeavored, in e'very particular,
to perform the work under a strict construc
tion of the law under which we were elected
and qualified, and feel s.itisfied that many
thousands of dollars will be saved to the
taxpayers of the State thereby. But this is
what the Oregonian says on the subject :
We have received a copy of the senate
and house journals of the last legislative
session. On examination we rind them
printed more honestly than, for many years.
Some improvement doubtless could yet be
made by enforcing more rigorously in certa'n
parts a strict construction of the law; but as
each one of these journals is shorter by two
hundred pages than those of last session.
thouuh the proceedings were about of eo,nal
length, it will be seen that a great deal has
leen done on the side of honesty and the

A friend writing us from The Dalles, un
der date of March 2d, says: The snow, has
disappeared from around here, and left the
roads in so bad a condition that very few
farmers come to town, which makes times
ratner dun nere at present ; hut every one j
seems to think that as soon a3 the roads get
good times will be lively. There is consid
erable improvement going on here. Mr.

" Mariner" writes truly and from a prac
tical stand point. From a careful observa
tion, made years ago, 1 know that Port Or
ford is open to the sam 3 objection that the
south side of Cape Foulweather is, t. e. ,
"no protection from sou tli west gales." There
is no headland to the southard of Cape Blanco
at Port Orford. The best protected and
cheapest point to obtain a harbor of refuge,
centrally located, is on the north side of
Cape Foulweather. So says the reorts.
We had one of the severest gales, on the
1st inst, for many years; a considerable
portion of the strong fence surrounding the
Lighthouse at Yarjuina Point, was blown
down, some of it carried cpaite a distance ;

The Twexty-Secon-d at Alsea Valley.
Our old friend, Mr. William Ford, writes
as from Collins, under date of Feb. 23th,
that the citizens of Alsea commemorated
the memory of Washington's liirthday by a
grand ball, at the resideuce of Mr. Burn
ham. The mosic, under the direction of
Mr. Duusworth, was excellent. The supper-
was elegant, and the table3 literally
groaned under the load of "good things" of
this life; There were some "twenty couples
present, and everybody seemed perfectly
happy. It was one of the most pleasant
social gatherings ever held in our valley, an 1
all feel under miny obligations to Mr.
Burnham for the kind hospitality shown on
the occasion. -
The Hager Murder. The old German,
Joseph Bruder (or Groeder a3 fir3t published)
arrested on suspicion; as the murderer of
Mrs. Barbara Hager, near Oregon City, re
cently, has been discharged, after a full and
careful investigation. The prosecution for
the State failed to make a case against him,
and it was ordered, by the court, that he be
discharged fiom custody. The citizens pres
ent at the trial made up and presented him
a purse of money before his leaving the
court room. His innocence is proved, be
yond a doubt and the murder is still in
volved in the deepest mystery. The defend
ant gave bis full name as Franz Joseph Bru
der, made a full and complete statement,
which was taken down, and to which he
signed his name in a clear, plain hand. The
announcement that he was a free man seem
ed to affect but little. His manner was
that of an innocent person, from the first.
In Effigy. On last Monday night, in
Portland, two images, representing Presi

in effigy. ' The Oregonian says it will be

Blue Ribbon Cu b. The public interest
on the temperance question seems to b.- on
the increase in Corvallis. At the regular
meeting of the Club, last Saturday evening
the M. E. church was crowded to overliow
ing, and tpiite a number were unable to gel
seats. Rev. J. A. Hanna having been solic
ited by the Executive Committee, favore.l
the large audience with a very interesting
aldress, which was followed by hrt, pithy
soeeches, interspersed by vocal and instru
mental music under the supervision of the
committee on music, Miss Estella Glass pre
siding at the organ. The President announc
ed the roll of memliership, at the close of that
meeting, to contain 296 names. The Club L
a-ljourned to meet at the same place next
Saturday evening at 7 o'clock, at whicn
tune the election of permanent officers will
take place ; the present officers simply being
pro tern appointments. Let us have "a rous
ing meeting, and large additions to our roll
The Fountain. -That splendid little tem
perance paper, The Valley Fountain, edited
and published by J. C. Cooper, McMinnville,
came to hand this week, enlarged and great
ly improved. We are glad to-notice this ev
idence of prosperity in the only paper in
this State devoted entirely to temperance.
By this enlargement Bro. Cooper is enabled
to give more miscellaneous' matter, and the
selections exhibit good taste and judgment.
Xow. if the temperance people throughout
the State, would give him sufficient encour
agement, which they could easily do, he
would make the Fountain a weekly, instead
of semi-monthly journal. To this end every

"mild," but we have been treated to a variety
of weather, since, which culminated yester
day morning in one of the severest wind and
rain storms that we have experienced for
years. Sheds, signs and fences were fearfully
wrecked, although we heard of no very seri
ous casualties up to the hour of going to
press. If the storm was as violent on the
ocean, we may hear of terrible consequences,
that may add strong reasons for the imme

has merited him the highest encomiums and

For Fever and Ague, Intermittent Fever,
Chill Fever, Eemittent Fever, Dumb Ague
Periodical or Bilious Fever, &c, and indeed
all the affections which arise from malari
ous, marsh, or miasmatic poisons.
This is a compound remedv, prepared with
scientific skill from vegetable ingredients, which
rarely fails to cure the severest cases of Chills
ana rcver ana the concomitant disorders. Such
a remedy the necessities of the people in mala
rious districts demand. Its p eat superiority
over any other medicine yet discovered for the
cure of Intermittent is, that it contains no qui
nine or mineral, and those who take it are free
from danger of quinism or any injurious effects,
and are as healthy. after using it as before. It
has been extensively employed during the last
thirty years in the treatment of these distressing
disorders, and so unvarying has been its success
that it has gained the reputation of bcing infal
liule. Itcan, therefore, be safely recommended
as a sure remedy and specilic for the Fever and
Ague of the West, and the Chills and Ferer of
the South. It counteracts the miasmatic poison
In the blood, and frees the system from its influ
ence, so that fever and ague, shakes or chills,
once broken up by it, do not return until the
disease is again contracted.
I The great variety of disorders which arise from
the irritation of this poison, such as Neuralgia,
Rheumatism. Gout, Headache, Blindneu,
Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Asthma, Pal
pitation, Splenic Affect ions, Hysterics, Pain
In the Bowels, Colic, Paralysis, and dcrange
of the Stomach, all of which become intermit
tent or neriodical. have no speedier remedy than
Ayeb's Ague Cons, which cures them ail alike,
and protects the system from future attacks. As
i preventive, it is of immense service in those
communities where Fever and Ague prevails, as
it stays tbe development of the disease if taken
on fho first nnnrnaph of the nrcmonitorv SVulD-
toms. Travellers ami temporary residents are JJL Trucks, lately owned by Mr. James Eslin,
