The following article, which wo find in

we commend to general attention :
At tlio request of feveral ladies nnd gen
tlcmen, who have felt mid manifested 11 deep
and active interest in tho welfare of sick
and wounded soldiers, we respectfully sug
gest to the people of thin State, mid Wash
ington Territory, that collections be made
in ail the congregations that meet for wor-
Hliip on the day of National Thanksgiving,
in aid'of the purposes of the Sanitary Commission-.
We fully appreciate the gencr
our liberality nlreudy shown, but it may
be that some-ouo will thus have un nppor
tuaity. to give, not heretofore nff-irded,
while others who have already contributed
wiU not be sorry on that day to repeat
their generosity : for it must nit be for
gotten that the terrible losses in the recent
battles, tlioagh resulting in glorious vic
tories,. have placed thousand of new suffer
ers in ohargc of the Commission, and com
pelled it to ask for further und munificent
donations. Can we, if thankful for these
victories, more appropriately prove our
lively gratitude, than by remembering those
whoso blood Imi helped to win such tri
umphs' We trust that tho clergy, with
accustomed philanthropy, will give to this
suggestion their attention, uud wo ask
that tho newspapers of Oregon and Wash

The Now VVugon Road.
Messrs ,11. Bloom. J. Love, I. Constant,
and others, liavo returned .from a trip to
tho Deschutes river, over tho new wagon
road. To them wo aro indebted for thu fol
lowing facts : They report (hat a wide,
well graded road has been opened up to
Flouiieu Hock, distant Horn Juckt-onville
thirty-six miles. There was but 210 rods
of grading dill to bo done nt Flounce Hock,
when tin; road would bu open to n f-trcum
eight miles beyond.
Mr. Monger, Superintendent, bus demon
strati d his thorough nullity for constructing
(he road, hit, It was thought, hud expended
more labor in milking 11 level Mirlncu than
the fin incus of tho company would allow.
However, tho work has been done on the
most heavy grades on the route Gut's De
feat nnd Flounce Itouk nnd now the most
heavily londtd wagons can travel over
them with ciu nnd wifely. The Summit
I'ufs is represented iih very open, nnd pre
senting no obstacles but scattered dead tim
ber to oblruct tho transit of w'igons. All
along the lino of the proposed road the
timber has been fired, and before this time
is well burned out. From the Summit Pass
to tho Defchutes river tho road will run
over a high, open nnd level country, with
no obstructions in thu way to Impede rap'd
travel. These gentlemen extended their
trip on as far as tho Defoliates river, within
ciirht miles of the Eugene City road. Hav
ing thoroughly tntl&fled themselves of the
directness nnd great nnturnl advantages of
thu route clear through to a junutlon with tho
Eugene road, they started on their return,
stopping occasionally to fire logs nnd brush
011 thu lino of the road. They were six days
returning, but say that, with stwdy, eay
traveling, I hey could have reached this
placo from the Deschutes in four days, tho
distance being certainly not more than 100
The dlstanco from Jackronvillo to the
Summit Pass is estimated to bo scTcnty-flvu
miles. Of this, forty-four miles of by far
the worst part of tho road are completed.
It is not known definitely how soon thu
road will bo completed. With proper ef
forts on tho part of our citizens it can be
finished insldo of four weeks. Funds
enough havo not been subscribed, and nil
those who have subscribed have not paid
up. This should not bo tho case. The
good work should not bo delayed a day for
tho want of means.
Messrs. Love, Bloom, Constant mid others,
havo been untiring in their efforts fur thu
completion of thu road, and their lauda
ble exertions should receive generous en
couragement. They have liberally dona
ted time, labor nnd money for thu further
ance of this oljcct. which Is to directly or
indirectly benefit ove-y person in the Valley,
und they should have thu means immedi
ately placed at their command to put the
road through in the shortest possible time.
Those who havo subscribed labor to thu
road inu.'t know that their labor can bu of
no avail next winter, their cervices nro
wanted vow or never. Our farmers, by
united effort, have it in their power, to find
a market for tho Mirplus crops of grain that
havo been lying in their barns Tor thu past
two or threo years, by the completion of
this road, and wo cannot believe that they
will allow tho work, when ho near comple
ted, to bo for 11 timo abandoned. No! let
us make 0110 mora effort, and in n few
weeks' timo wo will have a good wagon
road over the best and shortest route to
John Day, Powder and Bolso Rivers 11
route that will Inevitably bo the great line
of (ravel between Northern California, and
Southern Oregon, uud tho mines in thoso
It Is said that tho road will run within
twelvo miles of tho Hi to selected for Klam
ath Post. If this provo true, and we do not
doubt tho statement, tho military will prob
ably assist tho enterprise.
About 10 o'clock this morning many of
our town people were alarmed nt tho sight
of a two horse wagon and team coming In,
to town, by the valley mad, at a furious,
rate, a II itlu girl holding tho lines and do,
lug her utmost to check their speed; but on
they came, turning corners und runulug
through thu narrow spaeo between the cor
ner of Clusnao & Drum's Stable mid thu
large sign-post in front, und (hence up Cal
ifornia street, in which they were stopped
by (wo gentlemen who inn mid gr.i-ptd the
bridle reins. The bravo Utile lady wn
then lifted from thu wagon, pale uud weak
from her exertion mid thu realization of ihu
dangers she had t-o Providentially escaped.
It appears that, when within about u mile
of Ihu town, the man In charge of the
team had got down to nrrungu soinu por
tion of the load, when tlio team suddenly
started, mid tlio girl gathered the Hues mid
managed to keep them In Ihu road; thus by
her presence of mind saving herself, the
team and thu toad from injury. Shu is u
daughter of Mr. J. B. Wrisley, and is ouly
eleven years old.

It is n Herculean, but llercuVau appli

of the result there is no reason to doubt.
The unsuecesslul attempt of thu irnn-eluds
against Fort Sumter on the 7th of April
gave the us.uiliints n great deal of uselul
knowledge. The results of thut enterprise,
through n failure in the main point nt templ
ed, increusu tlio confidence of nil thought
ful observers of this new one that its issue
is likely to lie luvornbio lor the ussnilnnts.
Hie effort of the ironclads in April was to
engage Sumter on the north-west Hide,
which was known to be its weak face. To
accomplish that, the during fleet essayed
to run between the batteries of Morris "is

the north to risk Fort Wuguer uud Bat

Mnullrio on the right, uud plant themselves
under the very nose of Fort Johnson, while
1 hey gave their whole attention to wicked
Sumter. When they found by actual ob
servation that nil the channels were ob
structed with lines of spiles null hugh tor
pedoes, nnil with submerged nets of ropes
spread to eutuiiiilu their propellers, unship
liieir ru.Mers, and il-dnin the fleet within

was given up. Hut thu ironclads weie
eager to test their impregnability. uud they
would not retiie without a chance. So
