At the time of mailing the Gazette of the

printed slip to papers for the purpose of no
tifying subscriliers of the time when their
subscriptions expire. It takes time even to
pursue this method and we only got through
with a portion of our list of subscribers.
This is done because man- of our subscrib

a while, and if found not to require so much
time as to make it impracticable, we shall
thereafter notify each suliscriber a little be

Oakville, Linn Co., Feb. 12. 1882.
Ed. G.17ETTE: Your loud appeal to your
readers to write a few items for the Gazette
every week, in ur last issue, reached this
part of the country. I am not a citizen of
your county, but probably a few items from
Linu County wo.ild interest your readers.
Oakviile is situated about four and a half
miles southeast of CorvaUis. We have one
of the finest churches in Linn county, con
ducted by the U. P. Church; also a Sabbath
School with over 100 in attendance.
There has been two deaths in the past
week. Rev. Atchenson lost a little daugh
ter, aged two years and a half. Mrs. Dalin
da Goodell, a resident of Marion County,
died at the residence of Wm. StTohu on the
10th. She was born in Ohio iu the year
1S36 ; emigrated to Illinois and Main, and
came to Oregon in 1847; settled on French
prairie and lived there up to tho lime of bar
death. Having lived a devoted christian
for forty years, she lias now gone to meet
her companion who died seven years ago.
There was a meeting on last Monday
night to take steps for a new ferry. We
have twenty-four shares taken. There is to
be another meeting the 13th to make ar
rangements to jxo to work. We have been
robbed by the Moore's ferry long enough.
They have been very narticuls in charging
men who haul wood and crossing every day
to your city, a full price. I think the citi
zens of Benton should take an interest in
this enterprise for there is many who live
nearer CorvaUis than Albany would go
there to do their trading, but we have to
pay 50 cents every time we cross, and it
counts up in the course of the year. We
appeal to the citizens of Benton to come to
our rescue, for a "friend in need is a friend
On tho 13th we met again to reconsider
the ferry question, and the company was
organized and wy.l be incorporated soon.
We wish to say this to those business
men of CorvaUis who are so independent
about not helping U3, who say they will not
give a cent, that they will be remembered,
especially by those who have farms on this
side of the river. I heard one man say that
he had traded thousands of dollars at a cer
tain store, but that they could have no more
of his money. Men who live by the farmer
must liear in mind that there is a way to
get even, and we propose to recollect all
those who say they will not give a cent to
help us free ourselves from this burden.

sible for his murder. His blood is on the
garments of the whole gang of you, and you
cannot wipe it off. You have been dealt
with very tenderly touching your grave re
sponsibility for this crime, but everybody
knows you are guilty, and you feel it your
selves in your iurermost souls. It was
your abuse and denunciation that 'inspired"
Gniteau to remove the president as a polit
ical necessity, and you will not be permitted
much longer toj hide the stains on your
hands or distract attention from them by
raising the dust around the heels of Blaine,
by throwing mud at Sherman, or heaping
ridicule on me. Your crime wa? not mere
ly the murder of a man, it was the transfer
of government by a murder to the hands of
a faction of the f arty, which, if the question
could have been submitted to the people at
the time it was done, would not have re

Why, you are the most stupid fools iu the
world to keep on provoking discussion of
these old matters. You stand as acknowl
edged criminals, as morally responsible for
and guilty of Garfield's murder; but against
you, on account of your friends and the
good name of the community, prosecuting
witnesses are loth to proceed. Hut when
yon treat mercy as cowardice, and to guilt
add insolence and defiance, you are Uno long
