The following is the brief synopsis of the plot;
A young scapegrace named Douglas Catter
mole is living iu London lodgings and is At his
wits' end for means of staving off hi unfortu
nate creditors. He is expecting th arrival of
a rich uncle from India, who tins not seen hi
nephew for twenty years. Harry Mainland
Douglas' boon companion, is to meet in lxu
don and take to the country seat of Mr Mars
laud, his uncle, a clerical tutor named Spaniel
ing, who is to give instruction to Mr Mnrs
laud's daughter and her girl friend. The two
young fellows get up A scheme to introduce
Done las at Mr MarslamV house a the tutor
and to leave tho clerical gentleman In Douglns'
lodgings. There the uncle from India discov
ers the Rev Mr Spuuldlug, whom he luppoae
to be hi nephew, and he is furious to find a
canting, psalm sinning parson when he had ex
pected to meet a jolly young man with taste
similar to his own. In the second Ret all the
characters turn up iu Mr Mainland's country
house, and the persecutions to which the un
fortunate Spaulding is subjected before he suc
ceeds in making his identity known, the
dmukeii pranks of Gibson, the tailor, who in
dulges to fiee'v in Mr Mainland's wine, some
"materialization" foolery with Spaulding as
tho "medium furiilho the chief part of the
fast and furious fun which follows. Scat
are now on sale at Cram'.
The Circus. John Robinson' circus per
formed In this city Wednesday afternoon aud
evonlng. Large cnnvil of people were) in
town during the day, and. our streets hotl a
Fourth ot July appearance. The parade wa
fair, tho wagon being handsomely painted,
but tho horse were not up to th usual stand
ard. It wa estimated that at least 4,000 eo
ple attended the two performances given. '1 he
menagerie wa hardly up to the standard of
that of Cole. The show had a real live giraffe,
the first ever bro ight to Oregon, and it was
admired by large crowd of eurloiu people.
From those who witnessed the performance in
the rings, we learn that the majority were not
pleased. There wo no tumbling or horizontal
bar actiug whatever. The trapeze perform
ance wa old. The riding waa don in an ex
cellent manner, a-i w.ts also the tight wire act
in;. The catapult did not come u, to the ex
pectation formed hy the people. The exhibi
tion given by the trained dog wa loudly ap
plauded, and waa the beat part of the show.
The clown, John Lowlow, wa original ml
made many happy hits. The flying leajx
made,. the skating, bicycle riding, the swords
frnt, etc, wero commonplace and hardly
worth one's time or attention The men em
ployed by the show seem to be gentlemanly,
and not given to rowdyism. Th managers
are first class, fair minded business men. N
gambling or chance game wa permitted by
the management, which action on their part
is certainly commendable. - But our people
do not want to see any more "ten shows iu
one." Give us a good circu in one ring and
our people will be satisfied. Hard time are
unknown to a person wanting to go to a elrcua
hence we will not moralize.
Arrested. Sheriff Campbell, Tueaday
evening, arrested Scott Bond, on the oharge
of adultery, about six mile from Oakland,

herding sheep for livelihood. He brought

county recently, and took him to Roaebnrtf
