0UR BEAUTIFUL RIVER."
It being admitted that there can
be no prosperity for "our young and

the name of

thoress, and other learned persons
have shown their zeal, while a host
of others, some annouymous, and
others that Ovight to have been, h ive
shown their .something else. Now,
I assert that the name of -'our beau
tiful river," is neither Willamette,
Wallamet, Multnomah nor Ugh-au-la
mut pthzz, but they are, one aud
all, vulgarisms or dialctical corrup-
tions of the correct and proper came.
I further asseit that the ancient.and
therefore proper, name of "our
beautiful river" is "Long-tom"-pro-nounced
in two syllables, with the
accent equally divided. "Long-torn"
in all the different languages I have
examined over one hundred and
seventy in number, some living and
dead means, "beautiful river." To
the learned I will suggest that it is
only necessary to Latinize a word in
order to recognize in its radicals the
elements entering into corruptions
and dialects growing out of it. Let
us apply this rulo to "Long-tom"
and observe the facts: Isonfiminus

Farming tnd Manufacturing.
The total number of persons, male
and female, engaged in agricultural
pursuits in this country in 1870 was
5,922,503, and the total wages paid
them was $310,286,000, or about $55
each. It is to be remembered, how
ever, that agricultural laborers usu
ally receive their board in addition
to their wages. If we estimate this
at $100 a year, it would raise the per
capita of wages to $150 a year. The
whole numier of persons, male and
and female, engaged in mnnufactur-
jing was 2,053,99(5, and the total
Wage paid them was 775,588,000,
or about $ 3S7 per capita. This shows
; that the wages of a manufacturing
j hand were two and a half times as
: large ns those of a farm har.d on the

Lie Down and Rest.
Dr. Hall says that the Aest medi
cine in the worlds more efficient in
the cure of disease than all the pota
tions of the materia medica, are
warmth, rest cleanliness and pure
air. Some persons make it a virtue
to brave disease, to keep up as long
as they can move a foot or crook a
finger, and it sometimes succeeds;
but in others the powers of life are
so completely exhausted that the
system has lost all ability to recuper-
work ls au effort a warm bed and a

steps to a sum and speed recovery.
