Common Council. The regular
monthly meeting of the City Council for
October, Dr. F. Barclay, Mayor, presiding,
was not held until last Monday evening
owing to the absence of several members.
In another column will be found important
ordinances which we are authorized to pub
lish. The regular monthly meeting for No
vember will be held at the Council Chamber
on next Monday evening.
Substitute for Batting. As the
winter season approaches, housewives gen
crally desire a suitable article for making
bed comfortables. The Woolen Factory of
Mr. Trullingcr. about seven miles east of this
city, manufacture an excellent article for the
purpose. It is an admirable substitute for
cotton batting. A fine quality of yarn is
also made at the same factory. Messrs.
Charmau & Brother are agents, with whom
orders may be left.
Webster's Unabridged. The
large volume of Webster to be seen at our
offic, was a present from Mr. S. B. Parrish
of Portland. It is a fine sample of the books
to be obtained at the establishment of J. L.
Parrish & Co., and we recommend parties
who wish anything in that line to give the
house a call.
A Linen Factory. A great many
people desire to see a linen factory estab
lished in this city. As an evidence of the
demand for linen fabrics we may state that
the sack factory of Mr. Kester in this city,for
eighteen months, worked up linen goods to
the amount of $300 per month.
Base Ball. -The return match of
base ball will be played on Saturday next;
at Portland, between the Pioneer Club of
that city, and the Clackamas Club of this
city. A steamer will leave Oregon Cily for
Poitlaud on that morning at 7 o'clock, and
return in the afternoon.
Home Again. Thos. C. Chormun
Las returned from San Francisco with a very
full stock of merchandise, lull particulars of
which is given by advertisement. Mr. J.
II. Ralston, late of Ralston & Myers, has also
returned with a heavy stock. Our readers
will be able to post themselves with regard
to these matters by an inspection of our
Still Coming. Mr. J. M Bacon,
County Clerk, W. P. Burns, Sheriff, and J.
L. Barlow have added largely to our list of
yearly subscribers the past week. This is a
kind of encouragement we appreciate.
Mctcal. Dr. F. Barclay of this city has
been appointed agent for the New England
Life Insurance Company. Amory Holbrook,
deceased, was formerly its agent in this
Body Recovered. The remains
of Lewis Leopold, drowned at this city on
the lsth, were recovered on Monday last,
iiu-I properly interred on the day following.
Pine Wool Sheep.
Messrs. Thomas Rowley and John G.
Porter of this city have within the past
week brought to this county two lots of
fine wool sheep to the number of 200 head
each. The sheep are certainly equal to any
that have ever been brought into the count-.
The same gentlemen have al?o purchased
four bucks of full blood, two of which took
first premiums at the last State Fair, and the
other two took second premiums. Three of
these were purchased of Thomas L. David
son of Marion county, and one of J. Miuto,
also of Marion. For fineness, beauty and
weight of fleece these sheep cannot be sur
passed. We are pleased to see our Clacka
mas couuty friends 44 branching out" in this
line. The facilities for sheep raising in this
county are unequalled in the State, and there
is room for a thousand head here where we
now count but a single sheep. Messrs.
Rowley and Porter design entering upon the
business largely, as their late purchases in
dicate, and as it costs no more to raise fine
wool than it does to produce coarse grades,
they have started right. Fine wool merinos,
such as they have, will average six pounds
to the fleece, while common sheep rarely
produce more than three to four pounds.
We have an evidence of what results from
keeping the best sheep, in the productions
of Mr. T. G. Nailer, of Washington county.
That gentleman last week sent to the Fac
tory at this city one French merino fleece
which weighed 26 1-2 pounds, and several of
the fleeces from his flock weighed twelve
pounds, and the average below that was
from 8 3-4 to 9 pounds each. Mr. Elliott,
also of this count', has lately purchased two
splendid fine-wool bucks. We advise others
to follow these examples.
Home Manufactured Clothing.
It is with pleasure that we call the atten
tion ot the trade to the facilities Mr. C. M.
Kester of this city has for supplying the
market with home manufactured clothing,
etc. Wc sometimes hear a merchant com
plain that his customers are slow pay al
luding to the agriculturists. Do such mer
chants ever conceive that they are mostly to
blame for this? Do they realize that the
farmer is principally dependant upon the
home market for the disposal of what he pro
duces, in order that he may pay his store
bills? We think not, else they would con
sider, when purchasing clothing in other
markets and such articles as are made at
home, that they are shutting up establish
ments which employ large numbers of peo
ple who buy of the farmers that they may
live. One such establishment as Mr. Kes
ter's, in this city, is worth more to us than
ten portages, yet, we find people complain
ing that the slow process of passing freight
through the town has been abolished, and
wc hear of nothing, particular!-', that they
would say or do to keep the factory above
water. We are proud of Mr. Kester's estab
lishment, and should like very much to see
the proprietor increase Lis force of opera
tives. . Thanks. Mr. Diller, of the Lin
coln Bakery, has our thanks for a fine string
of trout, and Mr. II. S. Buck will also accept
of our bow for a fine sample of cider.
In this city on the evening of the 3ist of
October, Edoar Ballinger, son of W. B.
and F. L. Partlow, aged 2 3T3 and 4 months.
" We miss thee Eddie ; the smile that used
to greet us.
No more will shed its sunlight o'er the heart;
No more thy step come lightly forth to
Or sweei adieu be whispered when we part.
Thy last adieu is said; thy smile has lost
its play ;
Thy heart is still, that was so full of love;
The angels came and called thee, dear, away
To join their number in the realms above."

BLACK. MARBLE. Some one informs
us of the discovery of a quarry of black mar
ble, and a superior deposit of lime in Cali
fornia. One of the most important discov
eries in Oregon is the fact that Barman

on the river side of Front Street, between
Arrigoni's Hotel and the Lincoln House, is
the best place at which to purchase clothing.

Throughout this Coast a great deal of suf

Weeks and even months of protracted and
aggravated misery is endured by the victims
of medical inefficiency and ignorance, which
could be cured just as spetdify as was Mr.
Sparrow, whose testimony is given below,
and is only the echo of hundreds of other
cases. Dr. Bouhxe cures without medi

Sax Francisco, Sept. 6, 1861.
Dr. Bourne: Last Winter 1 was nearly
dead, by an attack of inflammatory rheuma
tism. I suffered the most excruciating
pt-ins for about five weeks, without an hope
of relief, when a friend hearing of my illness,
called to see me, and assured me that if I
would stop "drugging and dosing" and go
to you, that you would have me walking
about the streets in three days. Sure enough,
although I was utterly helpless, and con
veyed to your house in a carriage, and car
ried into it by three stout men, aud by them
lifted into the bath, yet, on coming out of it,
I largely assisted myself, doing much to
wards dressing, and, without assistance,
walked from the bath to the carriage. On
the fourth day I discharged my carriage and
walked, with a friend's aid, the entire dis
tance to your house (nearly a milt,) .and
home again, r.nd so on until cured. I felt
myself a well man. And now I am happy
to'doyou this little service, of publiely cer
tifying to the simple truth, leaving it to do
its work among my friends and acquaint
ances as may chance to see this. 0

An Interesting Letter.
Very few persons, even among physicians,
would have been willing upon any terms to
have been in the condition of the writer of
the following letter on the 14th of February
last. I will anticipate somewhat his report
of the facts by saying that on the 15th of
August he made me a visit, 44 the very pic
ture of good health." Time, which tries
and proves all things, has sufficiently tested
this case, and shown that neither relapse nor
collapse have followed, the cure is perfect,
and can be cited among the scores of similar
cases the result of my improved mode of
treating diseases without medicine.
O. M. BOURNE,
Water Cure Physician,
No. 10, Masonic Temple, Post street.
Sacramento, April SO, 1865.
Dr. G. M. Bocrne Dear Sir : It. is with
pleasure and satisfaction that I now let you
know of my good health. Looking back
upon what I have passed through, it seems
as iff had been lifted from the grave, and I
tbink it my duty to acknowledge to you and
the world the benefit I derived fro ji water
treatment as administered by you in your
celebrated baths. It was in August l$G4,
when disease developed itself with a severe
cough. 1 then took medicines, getting
worse with dulls, fevers, loss of strength,
Is aud was pronounced consumptive. Tliis
set me to thinking, and finally 1 determined
to leave my business and go to the Sandwich
Islands, having been informed that I could
not be c.rcd here. I went to San Francisco,
and while waiting for a ship called upon Dr.
Bourne, w ha stated that a trip to tht Islands
would probably result disastrously, was
wholly unnecessary, as I could be speedily
cured at his establishment. I placed myself
nnder his treatoint, and in one week was
so much improved I thought I could risk re
turning home and do my duty as Engineer
on Ihe Central Pacific Railroad. The Doc
tor objected, but I thought 1 knew better,
aud returned to duty. In about two weeks
my cough returned, and I kept getting
worse, and contrary to Dr. Bourne's injunc
tion never to take medicine again, committed
that folly, and soon was so completely run
down that I could scarcely walk ; so, as a
last resort, I concluded once noreto try the
Water Cure. 1 went to San Francisco few
of mv friends expecting me to return; in
fact I thought my return doubtful. On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
14, 1865) I was not able to get into the bath
without assistance, but in a few days I began
to recover myself again, I remained with
him only six weeks, when I felt a 44 wiser
and better man," without the aid of medi
cine. I have how been at work several
weeks, aoid find that I am gaining every day
and at present bid fair to be stouter than
ever before. Persons visiting the Doctor's
establishment find it just what it should be,
both in the Ladies' aud Gentlemen's Depart
ments, and I cannot say too raucti in praise
of the Doctor's kind attentions to his pa
tients. This letter I wute for the benefit of all the
amicted, to be used as the Doctor decides,
and should it be the means of directing any
to his care aud treatment wbl (as they as
suredly will) find relief, I will be paid for
my trouble. JAMES CAMPBELL,

Sax Francisco, Aug. 22, 18C5.
Advised by the undersigued, Ar. James
Campbell, of the Central Pacific Railroad,
(who was then in a most deplorable state of
ill health) placed himself under the care of
Dr. Bourne, the Water Cure Physician.
Some six months afterward he visited the
city, when I accidentally met him at Dr.
Bourne's establishment, and am happy to
say, restored to the enjoyment of good
health, and in finespirits.

Dr. Bourne treats all diseases of the
throat, chest and lungs which includes dip
theria, bronchitis, incipient consumption,
pleurisy, croup, etc., with great success.
Great re.ief is afforded in advanced stages of
consumption. Rheumatism, paralysis, neu
ralgia, fever and ague, droosy, etc , etc., are
also cured quickly, pleasantly and econom
ically. No medicine whatever.
Dr. Bourne takes the liberty to publish the
above as many persons had prophesied his
relapse into his former condition, on return
ing to his duties, of the writer of an 44 Inter
esting Letter," whtise statements concerning
tae-eureofa well defined case of consump
tion have recently attracted so much atten
tion to the Water Cure, as improved upon
and practised by Dr, Bourne- This addi
tiocai testimony must prove satisfactory to
all reasonable nunds. It should be remem
bered that Dr. Bourne uses no medicines
whatever, and that his patients almost uni
versally are those who failed to receive re
lief from the medical practitioners ; yet they
are cured with great rapidity, and in a pljas
mit ?ud agreeable manner. Nr 10, Masonic

Glad to Hear It. For several months
past Dr. J. II. Josselyn, for the last six years
so well known as the Resident Physician of
the Electrop.'dhic Institute, 645 Washington
street, San FFancisco, has contemplated re
tiring from his position for the purpose ot
accepting the position as Visiting Physician
in one of the large hospitals in his "native
State, Massachusetts. I he matter becoming
known to a number of scientific gentlemen
of San Francisco, who, feeling what a great
loss would occur to the community by the
withdrawal of .a physician of such scientific
attainments as Dr. Josselj-n, a meeting was
called at which resolutions high!' laudatory
ol the Doctor's abilities were passed, and "a
committee of gentlemen appointed to wait
upon him, present the resolutions, and urge
him to give up his intention of leaving the
State, and continue in his preseLt position,
The arguments of the committee facilitated
by certain pecuniary propositions, made by
the Directors of the Institute, having induc
ed the Doctor to return his position as Resi
dent Physician. We announce the success
of the negotiations wMh satisfaction, as it
would have been difficult for the numerous
patients that heretofore relied on the Doctor
for scientific and Miccessful treatment 1o
have found another physician capable of fill
ing his place. Democratic Standard, Jan. 31.

of our readers who may be suffei ing Iron,
disease of long standing, or from complaints
brought on by the use of mercury, at some
former period of their lives, to read the ad
vertisement of the Electropathie Institute, to
be found in our advet tismg columns. Dr. J.
Ji. Josselyn, the Resident Physician, has oc
cupied that position for six years, and tak
ing into consideration the "fact that all tho
Directors of the Institute are all medical
men of high standing in the community, it
may be considered as proof of Dr. Josselyn's
ability that he has betn retained in the posi
tion so Jong.. Dr. Josselyn is a regular trad
uate, ana is also consiueied by competent
judges to be the most cieutlic
ful electrican iti the United f-i
atts: he will
.cure more than half the diseases that flesh is
heir to without the use of anv medicine in
all cases where it is deemed necessary, but
never .uses any thing but vegetable prepara
tions. The doctor has been very successful
in his treatment of diseases incident to fe
males, and enjoys a much larger practice in
that particular line than any other physician
on the Pacific coast. The Electropathic In
stitute is located on one of the most popular
streets in San Francisco, the rooms for the
reception pf patients are fitted up in a style
of magnificence never before attempted by
any medical establishment on tins coast, and
the Institute is rated in San Francisco as tho
best in the city. Mountain Democrat.
The Best is the Cheapest. This adage
will apply as well to the practice of medi
cines as to the purchase of merchandise,
Thousauds on this coast, during the pasi
fifteen years, have had their constitutions
ruined by refusing treatment at the hands of
first-class physicians, simply becai S i a gang
of humbugs, styling themselves d ctors, and
who are aknost destitute of comn oa sens-,
much more of med:cal knowledge, ofler to
treat those who are sick lor a ltts sum than
a regular practitioner. A man that would
allow a quack to administer medicine to
him, is worse than an idiot, for, in nine cases
out of ten, the medicine so given, instead of
curing the disease, makes the patient worse
and does permanent injury to the system,
and oftentimes to such an extent ,as to pre
vent the possibility of curing the original
disease. The fact is, that no person should
place himself in charge of a physician unless
he has strong proofs that the -doctor is a
regular graduate fiom some well reputed
Medical College. The number of medical
humbugs in San Francisco, is perfectly
enormous ; not more than two xf the adver
tised physicians have a diploma. Dr. J. H.
