hI FoTtrBK Pfrosintcrs of Bknton
County. At no time in the past nas the
future of Benton county presented brighter
prospects than the present, for years many
of our people have known that on our coast
was a harbor which with a little aid from
the Government would become the outlet to
the sea for the whole of the Willamette
Valley and Eastern Oregon. Congress
has at last recognized the importance of
this Bay and an appropriation has been made
which we trust and believe is only a fore
runner of other appropriations far more
generous, the present appropriation will
soon be expended and fnlicn good will be
accomplished thereby, and if the present
efforts of the people of this county to raise
sufficient money to keep the work going on
until the next congressional aid can be uti
lized, only a few months will elapse before
the Yaquina Bay will be one of the best har
bors on the Pacific coast. The Oregon
Pacific is finishing the work on its railroad
from the Bay to Eastern Oregon, as fast as
men and money can construct Railroads
through that class of .country and in but a
few months more the mountains and valleys
of Benton county will echo back the sound of
the locomotive from Corvallis to the Ya
quina bay, and fSuch of the graiu of the
present harvest will find an outlet to deep
water without paying tribute to Portland
and Astoria. Surely Benton county and
the whole Willamette valley has. cause for
feeling thaukful for the important improve
ments now going on, and whose early com
pletion will be felt not only by added con
venience to business and an increase of popu
lation but its weiget will be felt in the
pocket of every farmer in Oregon in the
shape of solid coin the result of an increased
price of produce.
Sabbath is Cohvallis. One thing that
always strikes a stranger in our town is the
quiet and perfect absence of drunkeness
and rowdyism on onr Streets on the Sab
bath day also that all stores and other pla
ces of business are closed and the whole air
of the town has at least an outward apper
ance of respect for the religeous feeling of
the community and for the laws of the coun
try on that subject: in this respect Corvallis
differs widely from most of the other 'cities
of Oregon aud we feel assured that the ma
jority of our citizens will join -us in self
congratulation on this subject. This whol
some state of iiiorals is owing partly to the
fact that our business men recognize that
Sabbath is a day of rest by common consent
spend their time at home with their families,
and partly to tbe fact that the city, council,
fully appreciating that such a. law would be
in the interest of the peace and quiet
of the city, several years since passed a
strict Sunday Ordinance which notwith.
standing the various changes in that body,
is still unrepealed, and which we trust will
remain unaltered for all lime to come.

tian c'uty to his country, be had a strong
presentiment that he should never live to re
turn. May the fears So generallyjfelt in the
present crisis prove as groundless as his own
have thus far proved.

Gone to his Rkst. Yesterday we receiv
ed the sad intelligence that Richard C. Clark,
formerly a resident o'f this county, had died
at his residence iu McMinnville. We have
heard no further particulars except that he
had been sick a short time with fever. Mr.
Clark was a native of Missouri, and about
50 years old. His wife, who survives him,
is a daughter of Wm. G. Porter of this
county. He had been with the exception
of a few years a resident of Benton county
for nearly or quite 20 years, and was well
and favorably known in this city and the
south part of the county, where he had re
sided. About ten months since he moyed
to McMiiinville where he has since resided.
A good man, an honored citizen, a true
friend, an affectionate husband and kind
father has been called hence, and we can not
believe but to a more perfect life. May his
rest be peaceful and his awakening glorious.
Arrested. An old wretch by the name
of Lowery was arrested in this city this
week by deputy Marshal Miller for giving
whisky to Indians. This is the fifth time
he has been arrested for the same offense
and taken before Judge Dtady, and every
time before he has been convicted, and the
evidence this time is conclusive. Such deg
radation is seldom reached by man, and the
only cheering feature that we can see in the
matter is that the old reprobate has about
outlived God's statute of limitation and will
soon sink into a disgraced and nameless
grave. He was taken to Portland yesterday
by Harry McCormack, Dep'tU. S. Marshal
who came up after him the day before.
