,, Mat Day. Steps are being taken
to give'the little folks a holiday on the
first of May, at Beekman fc Linn's
park. We are truly glad to hear of
this movement, as it alwavs bring so
much pleasure to the children, aud we
think the place selected much more
preferable than Bybee's Grove, on ac
count of its greater facilities as
many will go there that would not go
to the former place.

day the Republican Primary was called
to order by Geo. Brown, and B. F.

St. Maky's Acadkmy. The last
term of the scholastic year of this in
stitution will begin on the 12th inst
It is steadily flourishing, and the very
large number of music pupils, over
thirty bears witness to the proficiency
of the teachers who, without any
special effort secure so much patronage.
The Academy hns achieved an enviable
. reputation which is shown by the large
attendance of boarding and day pupils.
In Portland. -Dr. L. S Thompson,
one of the pioneers of Scottsburg, and
well and favorably known here as an
old resident, is now sojourning in Poit

Mail Agent on the Railroad but they
were too arduous and he was forced to
discontinue. The Dr. is n gentleman
of extensive practice and good judg-
uent and he will probably look round

The Great Comet. The famous
comet of 1843 is making the grand
rounds again, and is expected to illum
inate the Presidential canvass this sum
mer. In 1106 it th .ne with a bright
(less which equalled the sun itself; in
1402 it was so brilliant as to be visable
nt noonday; in 1454 it is said to have
eclipsed the moon; in 1749 it inspired
with terror the unlettered throughout
the world, and in 1843 it gave aid and
comfort to the Millerites, assisting to
alarm those who heeded their predic
tions of the speedy destruction of the
world by tire. Should it return this
year with its accustomed style, it may
be expected to so conduct itsjlf as to
create a profound sensation.

An attempt is being made by the
Post Office Department to prevent
Wells Fargo fc Co's. Express from car
rying letters. We can not jierceive
what is to be gained, as this company
pays the Government full jiostage on
every letter carried and is really a val
uable auxilliary of the Kstal service.
To us Western tolks the "express" is a
cherished institution that prcvides
transit for letters, that insures greater
safety than the mails usually do, and
and if business men prefer paying a
slight additional rate for their service,
it neod not loncern the department
We hope the letter carrying of this
Company will not be interfered with
as it is of the very greatest conven
ience and benefit to the business public.

From David L. Hopkins, who has

Shooting Affray On Saturday
night about ten o'clock as Wm. Cald
well, who resides on Bear creek, was
about starting for his home from Man
nings stable, he was met bv a man
named John J. Lathrop, said to be an
old stage driver, and who had been
trying to engage Caldwell in a quairel
during the uPeruoon. ' On the wav
down to the stable Ltthrop fired two
or threejbots, probably front, drunken
bravado, ' and aroused ''Mi1! Manning
who came from his house to the stable,
and found -lie two men engaged in a
word row. He l.aJ haidly air.vtdou
the ground when Lathrop drew a pis
tol and fired two shots at Caldwell, one
passing through his coat and the other
making a flesh wound in his left side.
Manning wrenched the weapon from
Lulhrop's hand and found it to be his
own, having been 'keu from the sta
ble office, to which Lathrop had free
access. Caldwell's wound is sliglit,
which considering the fact the men
were only a few feet apart, is almost
miraculous. Lathrop was found on
Sunday morning secreted in his house,
and was arrested and lodged in jail by
Sheriff Byliee. On Monday he was ex
amined by Justice Huffer and discliurg
ed as the Justice thought the evidence
insufficient to procure his conviction.

He had been for some tiuie in feeble

night, he was taken suddenly ill ami
paused quietly away. Mr. Burke was
a kind hearted, genial aud inoffensive
citizen, a native of the county Long
ford, Ireland, about liftv -ix, or seveu
y.ars of age, and was laid away to
rest on Monday in the Catholic ceme

The "West Shore," for March, pul
lished in Portland by I Samuel, is at

attention of the publisher to the fact
that the Siskiyou mountains are !e
tween Oregon and California not in
Ti'olutnne county; that theie is no Jack
sonville in California; that trie floating
island is in Squaw I.ake, Jackson Co.,
Oregon; and its description should be
ctedited to the Oregon Sentinel.
The Roseburg "Independent" says:
"Chas. Strange, of Juckson couniy, was

of insanity, on the contrary he is a
bright, intelligent young gentleman.
Take the e from his name and there
will be. nothing strange about him.

After long travail the Supreme Court
have reversed the decision of the Cir
cuit Court for Jackson county, in the
case of the Coyote Gold & Stiver Min
ing Co. vs. Wm. & Walter Ruble,
Prim dissenting. The legal fraternity
here express the opinion that the Court
went out of its way to find reasons to
reverse the derision, and that its judg
inent was rei do,-ed on new points set
up by the Court and entirely outside
of the case. Vhat a pity it is that
demagogueism and stupidity can reach
the bench I Thayer, who appointed
the Judges argued and won the case,
and still the bar grumbles at a Gover
nor pleading before a tribunal of his
own creation. It does look queer even
