We hear of a colored man who shot and
killed a toll-bridge keeper because the
keeper would not let him pass free, yet the
toll was only 5 cents while the cost of the
powder and ball was 6 cents. It is no. won

thing. ,AJter all, our recent rain has not materi
ally hurt the crops. No grain will be lost
and but very little if any hay. It was at
first supposed that the hay crop or so much
as was yt in the field would be considerable
damage jbut later reports say that it has
all dii&Tout nicely.

Death of Gen. Brown. Gen. Mart.
V. Brown died at 15 minutes past 1 o'clock
on Wednesday, Aug. 3d, 1881, at Lower
Soda Springs in Linn county,' where he had
gone several weeks previous in search of
health. Though still quite a young man,
being only 38 yeirs old, Gen. Brown nad
been for a long time one of the most promi
nent public men of onr . State. He was
State Printer for four years, and for over
fifteen years was editor of the ' 'State Rights
Democrat," in which position he acquired
considerable journalistic reputation. He
was a soldier in the late war of the rebellion,
having answered President Lincoln's first
call for volunteers. Under Gov. Grover's
administration he was appointed Brig. Gen.
of the 2d Rrig., Oregon State Militia, which
office he held at the time of his death. In
disposition he was frank, generous am1 at
tractive, and had made many friends in
different parts of the State. He died sur
rounded by his family and near friends, in
the full possession of his mental faculties,
and expressing a firm belief in and reliance
on the truths of the gospel. He was bur
ried at Albany on Friday, the 5th, at 3 P. M.

Rev. S. O. Irvine, D. D. , at the U. P.
church; a very large congregation assembled
at the church and followed the remains to
their last resting pbce. The orderof A. O.
U. W. , and the Albany Fire Department, of
which he was a member, were in the pro
cession in full regalia, as well as a deputa

State of Matrimoxv. The smartest
man in Benton county is the chap who gave
us this vivid description of the state of
matrimony: "It is bounded by hnging
and kissing on one si lo, and cradles and
babies ou the other. Its chief products are
population, broom-sticks, and staying out
of nights. The climate is rather sultry till
you pass the tropics of house keeping, when
squally weather generally sets in, with
sufficient power to keep all hands as cool
as cucumbers. For the principal roads
leading to this interesting state, consult the
first beautiful blonde you come across. " No
doubt the young man lias been racking his
brain over "ancient (?) literature," and has.
no doubt, obtained the correct description
of the state.

Bad Boys. On la3t Wednaslay two
boys of our town, each of them aged about
fourteen or fifteen years, were arrested upon
information having baea filed with Justice
Wrenn to the effect that they had stolen
sundries articles of small vilue. They were
trie 1 and fined by his honor, and failing
upon their part to pay the necessary amount,
they Were both sent to the county jail. As
these boys are young, an 1 both having hon
orable and highly respected parents living
in the city, we pass the matter by without
giving their names, with the hope that this
will be a lesson for the boys which they
will not soon forget, and that it may be
their last offense.
Opposition Ferry. One day last week
one of the Williamsons, living in this county
came to the Ferry at Albany on horse back,
just as the boat had left for the Albany side
and being on a good horse and not wishing
to be delayed until the bo it should cross
and recros3 the river, called to the ferryman
that he could beat the boat across the river
and started in to do so. He succeeded
pretty well until about half way across when
the horse, becoming either weary or from
some other- sudden inspiration, turned
around and started for the home side. In
turning, the saddle came off and Mr. W,
found himself and saddle adri t in the Will
amette. However he soon succeeded in
getting hold of the horse and was towed
ashore in safety.

A Model Wife. Says the editor ot the
Cartersville ((ia. ) Express: "There is a little
brown-eyed, inthusiastic, high-spirited lady
who, after she has cooked breakfast and
cleared away the things, set .the house to
rights, attended the call of the bread wagon
and milked the cow, dons her hat and cloak,
conies into thi3 office, yanks U3 out of the
editorial easy chair, pounces on the exchan
ges, amputates every item of interest, stacks
them on the copy-hook, grabs up a Faber,
travels it over a quire of editor's manuscript
piper, "removes her snowy-white apron,
shoves up her sleaves, grabs a stick and rule
and set3 it all into type, reads the proofs
and corrects every error. That's our wife,
and she will .get her reward in heaven."
She Went. The old gentleman solemnly.
said: "Yes, daughter, you should go to
Newport. You cannot stay at home during
the warm weather and live. To be sure,
your mother, who hasn't been out of town
since she was married, can stand it; but
then she is old-fashioned and doesn't know
any better, and, beside, she has fun enough
doing the washing and ironing. By all
means, g .. Get a linen duster and a
blanket, and go at once."
Heap Sabbe. A California editor says
that twenty-four heathen Chinese walked
into his sanctum, and, through an interpre
ter, paid for twenty-four subscriptions to
his paper. The editor wondered what they
wanted with au English paper, and they
took it for the pictures in it, the paper hav
ing a rat cut, a catarrh cut, a guano trade
mark, and an umbrella "picture."

It is said that the new Oregon and China
Mercantile Company, which was incorpor
ated a short time ago, had let a contract to
Muekle Bros., of St. Helens, for a new A
No. 1 ship which would cost somewhere in
the neighborhood of 9100,000. If this is
true, it will be the erection of a ship yard
at St. Helens, a matter which has been long
devoutly wished for.
A Vacant Chair. There is a vacant
chair in our sanctum ; a highly burnished
pair of No. 11 cow hide boots are missed
from the corner of the office desk; a pair of
stalwart scissors are paralyzed, and the
paste-pot is in mourning; there is a kind of
"goneness" about the whole concern. Our
Senior has departed for Yaquina Bay
started Wednesday morning. Tuesday even
ing he seemed too full of sacred pleasure
and lavender-colored tranquility for any
thing. He skipped gaily about the office
softly warbling to himself the fragments of
a tender love-song, in the meanwhile pack
ing the corkscrews, matches and other vege
tables for the trip. The corkscrews will be
used in opening oysters. He went with
Mac Crow, and we are satisfied that he
made no suggestions as to the road or how
to drive. He " is full of taffy, gentle trust
and childlike confidence. By the time Pio
neer was reached, he was probably covered
with boulders of dust, and felt like acting
as chief mourner at a clam-bake. He would
not stop long at Pioneer. Toledo has more
attractions. As he approaches this place,
he will wear his blandest smile, and care
fully adjust his cold-pressed vermilion mous
tache. At Newport he will take in every
thing of value; he will visit the light-house,
assd probably climb upon its dome. He is
high-minded. There, as he sits amidst the
rumbling, rushing music of the "Waves, he
will be filled with great surging thoughts of
the sweet by-and-by, death, the grave, mat
rimony, his unpaid wash bill, and other
mirth -provoking topics. It will be a glor
ious spectacle. A suggestive chill creeps up
to our choakeras we think of it. He will eat
three "squares" a day, each as large as a
burglar-proof safe. "Early yorks " and
pickled spiders will furnish nourishment
between meals. He did not carry much
bullion of his own along, with ihich to
supply a want long fe't at Newport. He is
rich in A fiats." When beyond the restrain
ing influences of the office, he is liable to
act a little queer. We will depend on
Rialto to go his bail if necessary. He is
authorized to receive and receipt for sub
scriptions to the Gazette, 2 50 per annum,
in advance. All kinds of job printing in
good style, at starvation prices. Legal
blanks in stock. We leave him at New
port, and will not in thi3 article attempt to
follow him on his return trip. He will
then be followed by other people, with
other articles. Our ''address will be Cor
vallis, Benton County, Oregon."

Surplus Wheat. The various ware
houses of this city contain about 30.000
bushels of wheat of the harvest of 18S0. It
rarely happens that wheat is carried over
here, and the large surplus this Yfar was
undoubtedly caused by lack of vesseh to
transport it to Europe. It may indicate
low prices this season. Present advices
lead us to believe that there will be no
scarcity of tonnage this fall, but whether
the foreign demand will be large is yet
doubtful. The telegrams inform us that
the wheat crop of Russia is better this sea
eon than for twenty years, and that the
export promises to be much greater. Crops
throughout Europe will be average, and
prices here will probably not rule higher
than last year.
