The statement that five acres of ground had been purchas ed from Major Glenn for the steam grist mill is incorrect.

The young la dies have made arrangements for a leap year party at the Club llooms on the evening of Friday, Feb. 6th. The Jailies are is,utng their own invitations ana it bids fuir to be a most pleasant affair as Jacksonville's fairest will be there. Stage Accident. On Friday night the stage coming South went through --bridge about two" miles "North of viMow Springs. The driver, Geo.

Nearly three weeks ago a miner named C. Y. Miller, working on upper Elliot cieek, started from Collins, at the mouth of Squaw creek, for his camp. The day was very stormy and a blinding snow falling, but Miller, who was packing about forty pounds of supplies, thought he could reach his cabin without trou ble. He did not, however, aud as since that time he has not been heard of; there is little doubt that lie became ex hausted or lost the trail ami conse paently perished in the storm. The Gkist Mill. On Thursday last the site on which the new steam grist mill is to be elected was selected by Mr. Foudray. It is to be built di rectly under the point that comes down just North of "pest-house" gulch. A road will be graded back of the mill, so that grain will be conveniently un loaded and the lay ot the ground on the lower bide will enable teamsters to load flour without unnecef-sary hand ling.

It is gratify ing to note the progress that the pupils of our public school are making. Prof. Merritt and his assistants are earnestly at work training and educating the youth of this district, and it is a mat ter of remark that never since the or ganization of the. school have the chil dren made such headway in their stud ies. There is but one feature iu some of the departments of the school that is not as it should be, as wo regret to ob serve that the system of corptr eal punishment, not only for violating tha rules of school, but for failing to get the lesson, is kept up. It is a cus tom that has long since been condemn ed and abolished in the Vst public schools in the nation, and has been supplemented by more civilized and less degrading modes of punishment It is evident that if you cannot impart disciplin and knowledge by the patient training and teaching, you cannot do it by whipping.

It was ordered that the several Road Supervisors in this county be notified to erect and keep uj) guide or finger boards at the forks of every highway and crossing of public roads in their respective dis tricts as required by Section 30, of Chapter 50, of the Miscellaneous Laws of Oregon.

Frequent inquiries are made by our friends iu the East concerning the annual rainfall on this coast By" reference to the weather re port just issued we find that the rain fall at three different localities in Ore gon in 1879 was as follows: At Asto ria 59 inche of rain fell; at Portland 55 inches, and at Jacksonville not quite 25 inches. On an average 30 inches more rain fell in the Willamette valley than in the Rogue river valley, and the fact goes to show that South em Oregon is thedryest division of the State. Crossing the Northern bounda ry line into Washington Territory a remarkable increase in the rainfall is observed. At Port Townsend on Pu get Sound the rainfall in 1879 amount ed to 130 inches, or more than five times the mean rainfall at Jack sonville, seven times that of San Fran cisco, and twenty times that of Neva da. Eleven feet and four inches of rain we don't care about having as much in ours. Why cannot something be done to keep Jackson creek within its channel) The tailings from the mines above Jacksonville have filled up the bed of the stream, causing every rise in the creek to 'overflow its banks and to spread over a large surface of contig uous ground, to the great injury of the street and mad leading into the valley. The road in its present condition is a disgrace to Jackson county.

E. Church or ganization, we are permitted to publish the following instrument together with a letter from Miss Mary Gass. Miss Gass' letter explains the intention of the ladies who managed the concerts by which the organ fund was created and for the control of which the three Trus tees were appointed: This instrument in writing witness ed: Whereas, We the undersized by our personal efforts and with the assistance of others, have heretofore given two concerts of vocal and instru mental music, the proceeds of said con certs 10 be appropriated to the nur- chasing of a cabinet organ, and claim ing the right to designate the persens who snail nave tne control and man agement of said organ when procured. do by these presents appoint C. C. Beek- inan, f. G. Reamer and E. D. Foudrav as Trustees, to ha- a the full and abso lute control of and to designate the purposes for which Mid organ shall Ikj used," with the UiluCSSsnditi'' hut said organ shall primarily bemused in the Union Sunday School in Jacksonville, Oregon, and for other purposes of a proper char cter, in whatever place said Union Sunday School may be held, and also may be used elsewhere as the said Trustees may deem proper. The amount realized from said con certs over and above expenses is 110, which sum we hereby authorize C. C. Beekman, o 'e ot said Trustees, to apply to the purchase of said organ and trans portition thereof so' far as said sum will reach. Witness our hands this 16th dav of April, A. D., 1879. Ida Martin, Mary F. Gass. Oakland, Dec. 19, 1879. Messrs Reames, Beekman &. Foudray: Gentlemen: A few clays ago I re ceived a letter from three ladies of Jacksonville, who were appointed a committee to ask my opinion in this trouble, with the organ. I .answered them in sum and sulwtancs just about what I am now- goinj to write to you. Ida's and my intentions were from the first, to procure an instrument that could be used for the good of the whole community, and it does not seem right to me to change our minds now, be cause of a mistake in having our tickets printed, "for the benefit of the M. E. Church." I know that the building called the Methodist Church was built in an early day by subscription, and I supposed the intention of those who raised money for its construction was that it should b used by all denomina tions, as Presbyterians, Episcopalians and Methodists each held serrices there while I was in tovnt"I did not ques tion for a. moment but cohsidered this Ida and I exeited ourselves to secute a good organ, I for one had no desire to give it to one class, to be used and claimed as their particular property to the exclusion of all other denomina tions. Had this been my wish I should have, as a matter of course, preferred placing it in the hands of Episcopal ians. I reminded the three ladies re ferred to that only one or two Metho dists were present at ihe concerts and I thought as those who really paid for the organ were of different beliefs, they surely had as much right as the Meth odists to the use and enjoyment of the instrument. The ladies informed me that the Presbyterians "refused to ac cept the organ upon any conditions whatever." Be this as it may I as sure you I have not the most remote idea of withdrawing my name from the paper which gives you gentlemen control of it, to be placed where you wish; and used for any purpose your judgment deems proper. I regret our poor organ has been the cause of so much trouble and I sincerely hope the affair will be settled fatisfactorily all around. I remain, yours respectfully, Mary F. Gass. Still Unsettled. At the quarter ly meeting of the M. E. Church, held at Phoenix on Saturday last, Rev. D. A. Crow ell was authorized to act as he judged best with regard to the cabinet organ purchased, m part, with the pro ceeds ot two concerts-given last Spring by a number of young ladies aud under the management of Misses Gass and Martin. The programmes having been headed, "for the benefit of the M. E. Churchj' that organization now claims the net proceeds of the,. concert, 110. The oigan having cost Eomj. 78 in ex cess of the sum raised, the church au thorities, through Mr. . Crowell, offer to tike ther insfrurViejit, pay the indebtedness on it and-hold it as abso lute chuich property under the exclu sive control of the Trustees. The in strument of writing published else where, debars the custodians from ac ceding to these terms and on Monday, they, declining to deliver the instru ment except under the prescribed con ditions, were informed by Mr. Crowell that suit for the 110 would be at once commenced. It seems a slight con cession on the part of the Church migut nave quieted tins "tempest in a tea pot" and secured the-perjietual use of a very fine instrument; for notwith standing there has been a tnisapprehen' sion as to the disposal of the organ, the real intentions of Miss Gass, express ed over her own signature, should not be questioned. Leap Year in Manzaxita. Some of the young ladies in Manzanita are pressing their Leap Year privileges.

We were sorry to hear of the death of Mr. Pomeroy of Crescent City, for he was taking quite an interest in the proposed wagon road, and it is intimat ed that his deatii is about the death of the road; but I would like to know whether the road hangs on such a poor foundation as one man, or whether his death now shall make the living han" .i u.: ... i 6 " uuwii men- cam anu cry: "no use, no use I Sorrow for the dead is humane, and may he rest in peace in his watery grave, but let not the living sland idle because the worker has been removed.

Two of our county of ficials came near being drowned in Williams creek last week. Their wag on broke down, but as the water was only one foot deep they got out with a few slight bruises to the wagon. Mac. Crescent City Road. There seems to be much apathy on the part of the people of Crescent City, with regard to the boon we of Jackson and Josephine counties propose bestowing on ihctn. Looking round, it is discovered that some people iu J'nckson county want anybody but themselves to contribute. Both counties want Del Norte county to do its share, but as no action has been tak'en there since the death of Mr. Pomeroy who was on his way to San Francisco to enlist assistance, it is quite evident that the people of Crescent I vii.y oesne men irienus in oan rran ........ . jjnv,. . the Bay city, follo, this principle, will call on those rt New York and the road won't li0 lilt. Without any intention to burlesque it is too apparent that there are too many people in the three counties unwilling to help them selves and waiting for some one else to pull their mired wagon out of the mud. They will wait a long while and grow poorer and poorer, but just as long as flour is sold as low as 12.50 per thousand, as it was here last week, newspaper men can get bread whether tho farmer grows rich or not. All may as well know that this enterprise must bo aided by every one interested according to his ability, and if the peo ple on the coast want a road they must show how much of it they are willing to build. If the folks in Crescent City are unwilling to put their should ers to the wheel perhaps those of Ellens burg may do better. Important Suit. We have receiv ed the brief in the case of J. B. Cros sen appellant, vs. R. P. Eurhart respon dent, now before the Supreme Court Crossen as sherifT of Wasco county, petitioned the Circuit Court for Mult nomah county, for a mandamus to compel Earhart, Secretary of State, to allow his claim for mileage in addition to the full compensation allowed for conveying prisoners to the penitentiary by st-itufe. Defendant demurred and Judge Bellinger sustained the demur rer. In his written opinion the Judge laid down the principle that a subse quent law, although not expressly re pealing an existing law which is repug nant to the new one, necessarily and in effect does repeal it. In his decision Judge Bellinger says that the "travel" of a sheriff in conveying prisoners to the penitentiary is a part of his duty as sheriff, and to be compensated by the per diem clause in the new act which cuts ofT mileage. The position of the Judge of the Circuit Court srems impregnable and if his decree be affirm ed by the higher court it will be a vir tual decision that mileage allowed to sheriffs by the late Secretary of State, (Chadwick), since the "Act" of 1874 was illegally paid. The decision of the Supreme Court will be anxiously look ed for by tho sheriff of the several counties. Since stages from the South come and go by the "Valley" road the long lane at Justus' farm has become an in tolerable quagmire of mud and water. The weary traveler in vain looks for a sign where a lick of road work has ever been done, and thanks his stars that he ever got through measuring the mud of this miry "slough of despond." It is the opinion of the teaming pub lic that this stretch of the road dis counts the famous Herrin lane "all hol low."

"'mrzjmm 3EK32r2i VilltKK ISJLltOME I'K.llUIL? BY TRAVELER. It is related that during the recent snow-storm a weary foot-pad, seeking rest and home but finding none, called at the decaying log mansion of one of our Oregon pioneers, and solicited a night's lodging with the "lord of the soil." Many reasons and excuses were given and made by tho pioneer for his inability to accommodate the stranger, for even one night; but the unusual fatigue of trumping through the snow and wading streams, and the thoughts of a night on the road caused the stran ger to declare that he would go no far ther, but would be satisfied to sit by the fire till morning. He was then permitted to go in but nearly repented of his rash decision ere the dawn of the morning light. The meagre supply of wet and rotten wood, just dug out of the snow, and the neglected cracks and crevices in every side aud roof of the house, ad mitted a constant supply of the freshest Oregon atmosphere to the great danger of fresher colds and frosted feet. Dur ing the evening's conversation the stranger discovered that the pioneer was a "granger'' and therefore early next morning wishing to contribute something for the benefit of his worthy host he related the following dream he had during the little sleep he got through the night, viz: A certain Patron of Husbandry, zeal ous in the cause, and noted for the much time ho spent in promulgating its doctrines, and the great benefits de rived therefrom, finally sickened and died. Having given most of his tinib to the great cause, which he hoped and believed would warrant him a high seat in the everlasting Grange above, he marched boldly up to the outer gate and rapped for admission. On being asked who was there, replieil: "A Husbandman from the Grange below." "Have you been diligent and thorough as a cultivator? and have you done all your duty in trying to secure peace and harmony among your neighbors? and in doing to others as you would have them do to you? or, have you been recreant to your obligations, a promo ter of ill-will and discord, and glorying in human misery?" Ho waited for a reply, but the Granger with head bow ed was speechless. Then said Gabriel, "depart from me to the nethermost hell, and seek admis sion there of your father, the Devil." He went, but was told that no such Granger could enter his domains. "But," said the Patron, "where am I to go; they will not have me in Heaven?" "That matters little to me," replied his majesty, "for we have plenty of predju dice, ill-will and hate already here; but I can furnish you a quantity of carbolic acid and sulphur at a low figure, and you can go ff in some lone corner and start a httlo hell of your own." "But," said the wiley Patron, I shall not be to that expense, for I can go to Jerome under way. Traveler. Ilu.irtl of 1rutc-i. An adjourned meeting of the Board of Trustees was held at the Town Hall on last Saturday evening with a full Board piesent. The reports of the City Sexton and Street Commissioner were read and oidcred filed. A liquor license for one year was granted Noland & McDaniel. In regard to the opening of the Val ley road A. W.

This society, gotten up for the mutual improvement of the young men of Jacksonville, organized under its constitution on Monday night, the 26th instant, at the old Club Room, which has been rented for this purpose of the Masonic building authorities. The society organized with thirty-one char ter members, and the'officers hold their position for a term of six months. The temporary President, Chas. Prim, call ed the society to order, and caused the roll of members to be read, after which balloting commenced for permanent officers of the society, resulting in the choice of the following persons: Pres ident, Chas Nickell; Vice-President and Librarian, Fred Oveibeck; Secretary and Corresponding Secretary, Chas.
