At the time of mailing the Gazette of the 10th, we adopted a plan of attachiug a small 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 ers expressed to us a desire for such infor mation. We will pursue this course for 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 fore or about the time his or their subscrip tions expires.

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 indeed. " 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. H.

Things are jogging along here at the usual rate. Of course farmers are a little disgusted with this eter nal snow. One week ago some ten or a dozen plows started out at egular spring work and for about one day the air at morn was musical with the yell and howl of the gentle plow boy, but now alas ! hushed and still are those sweet voices. The health of the people in the valley has not been very good for a month bask. Mr. George Fowler and Mrs. Gninn have been vety sick but I hear they are now better. The water is not yet high enough for the loggers to float their logs down the Luck uiamute they are waiting anxiously for rain more rain. v"f'.- A young genius of this neighborhood has been at work for some time on the ploblem of perpetual motion. He thinks he has succeded. I have an idea thouch that it will be a long time before his machine goes.

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 ceived one vote in a thousand. One would think that with such a fact haugin? .over your heads in the clear daylight of public knowledge yon would have sense enough, thongh destitute of all decency, . to enjoy the lease of power tho assassin gave you, while the law allows, without persisteutly villifying the chosen friends ami associates of your victim, who was the nation's choice. 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 er entitled to forbearance. So now if you want reconsideration and full discussion of the whole subject proceed with your abuse.
