Public Improvements. We do not recol
lect of an instance in which public im
provement has been a grievance to pri
vate rights, without compensation. In the
matter of improving what is or should
be Bluff street, this city is about to be at
conflict with the private rights of Mr.
Daniel Harvey, an old and esteemed citi
zen of this place. Upon consulting the
44 Original Plat" we find that an error in
which we had fallen, is very apparent.
There is no Bluff street recorded upon the
plat of Oregon City. What should be
Bluff street is the private property of Mr.
Ilarvey. But we will not for one moment
suppose that that gentleman will interpose
one obstacle to the "spread" of Oregon
City. We believe that he will acquiesce
in the imperative necessity of the laying
out of Bluff street or, if he deem himself
aggrieved, we believe the city will make
to him due reparation for all damages he
may sustain. Bluff street, it seems, wras
intended by the lamented Dr. McLaughlin
to supply one of the greatest necessities of
our favored city. It was calculated for an
immense canal, from which should be fed
a long row of factories, a mile nearly in
extent, along the bank of the noble Wil
lamette. The modern designation of
sired, should not in the least discommode
the purposes of the original locator. The
ground can be used to the greatest advan
tage both as a street and a canal The half
million, or more, horse power which
passes our city daily, free, can be as easily
cor;verted to the wants of the manufac
turers mder the street, as it could in open
'daylight, hence we trust, with all due re
spect for Mr. Ilarvey, that he will not as
sesa the damages high, incident to the re-
'cent action of the Board of Supervisors
We do not think he will. We believe him
to be prompted by juster motives, and
consequently think that Bluff street will
be opened without any unnecessary ex
pense. It is hw right, which we hope to
see him sustained in, that the first princi
ples of the grant revolve to. his personal
benefit. Under the late ordinance, Mr.
G. II. Belden, than whom there is no more
perfect civil engineer, assisted bv Mr. A
Thompson, have made a practical survey
of Bluff street, and the same will be re
ported at an early meeting of the city
Almost a Fire. -On Saturday last about
12 o'clock, meridian, a rear portion of
Col. Moss' building, on the corner of
"Fourth and Main streets was discovered
to be on fire having caught from a flue.
No serious injury was done, but the cir
cumstance forcibly reminded everybody
that Oregon City is just now greatly at the
mercy of the elements without fire engine

much for a place, man is sadly deficient in
not availing of the chances and opportuni
ties. P.ut who shall we blame for our not
being supplied with good waterworks?
unless it be monied men M ho will not see
the glorious opportunity for investment.
Ouegov Woolen- Mitls. Twenty-eight
-cases of the new machinery for the Oregon
City Manufacturing Company arrived by
the Oritlamme. The Herald says : " This
Factory is putting forth endeavors to be
come the leading Factory on the coast."
It is all of that now : what are you think
ing of, Daly. The Oregon City Company
can dispose of all the goods they can make
and do it now right in San Francisco,
alongside the 'famous'' Chinese factories
of California, not excepting the high-toned
Mission Mills, with its "SoOO.OOO capital
stock." Oregon City is now second to
none in this line upon the coast.
c, Christmas Ball. We are informed by
Messrs. White A lliio.ides that they propose
giving on Christinas night a grand ball in
their new hotel, which is now nearly com
pleted. They hope, weather permitting,
to be enabled to open their house for the
reception of guests by that time. The
pleasure seeking young folks who desire
social amusement on such occasions will
find the proprietors of our new hotel on
hand, and we are assured that they will
spare no pains or means to make all
agreeable and pleasant.
Runaways. We had been congratula
ting ourself upon the safety of life and
limb in Oregon City, consequent upon the
unfrequency of runaways of horse?. But
we are more recently inclined to think
that there is here greater uncertainty of
those perquisites especially belonging to
the animal. Twice or thrice teams have
recently ran away, upon the bluff. Fortu
nately the horses turned upon some street
before dashing over the precipitous rocks
and landing upon terra finna at least three
hundred feet below their proper desti
nation. Acctiox Sale. As will be seen by ad
c vertisement, our fellow townsman Mr. J.
S. McDonald proposes to sell, on Saturday
next, the entire furniture and fixtures of
the Willamette House. The building is to
be refitted, and .improved, and will be
opened as a No. l saloon, under the pro
prietorship of Mr. Forrest, late of the firm
.of Mann & Forrest.
Clackamas County. The assessor's re
turn for Clackamas county shows a total
raluation of real and personal property,
amounting 0 $1,042,818. The exhibit of
finances will be found
There are l.fiOU persons in the countv who
pay poll ts.x. Last year we had 1,534
Visitors. On Sunday last several gen
tlemen and ladies from Portland availed
themselves of the extra trip of the Alert to
visit our city, and besides viewing the sub
lime works of nature which abound here,
they attended chnrch.
Cocxtt TAXES.--Sberiff Burns desires us
to remind tax-payers that they have but
four days in which to pay taxes without
extra, cost. See advertisement.
Home made Agricultural Imple
ments. Nearly all the agricultural implements
used upon this coast are manufactured on
the other side of'the continent We make
a few plows and an occasional harrow,
and sometimes turn out a wagon, but the
reapers, mowers, rakers and threshing
machines, together with a lonir list of
smaller implements, are brought around
the Horn, and of course are sold at a
handsome profit. Farming, labor is so
high in this country that agricultural ma
chines have come into general use. Noth
ing will come amiss which will save labor
and expedite farming operations. Wher
ever our mechanics have addressed them
selves to the task of producing any ma
chine to meet an industrial want, thev
have generally been successful. We do
not send abroad for quartz mills or saw
mills ; but we send abroad for half a mil
lion dollars' worth, more or less, of ari-
cultural implements annually: which ought
to be purchased at home and will be at
no distant day. We lately saw a portable
steam-engine, buiit in Portland which
could easily be ad apted to run a thresh-
mg-mashine in the fields, which surpassed
any engine of the sort procured at the
East. If an engine for farming purposes
can be made at home which challenges
competition, then we judge that any other
agricultural machine can be made at
home. It is true that there are natpnte rm
most of the best mowing, reaping and
threshing machines, though some of them
have recently expired. But the patentees
sell licenses to manufacture, in most in
stances, to whoever desires to establisl
himself in the business. The successful
manufacturers are, in many cases, not the
patentees. There would be no difficulty
probably, in obtaining all the requisite li
censes to make these implements in Ore
gon. We may not have so many resources
in the way of timber as are found in the
Atlantic States. But timber can be
brought to the country as advantageously
as iron. Besides, we have native timber,
more or less valuable, which is now used
successfully by farmers in making har
rows, stocking plows, mending wagons,
etc. There is hardly an agricultural im
plement that might not be improved by
Oregon skill, and thus better adapted to
farming requirements on this coast. The
great manufacturing establishments at the
East have yielded large fortunes to their
owners ; and even now the business is not
outdone. There are pioneer difficulties
in the way of all new industrial enterprises.
But surely, now that we make our own
leather, furnish our own castings and
grind our own wheat, the time cannot be
distant when we shall make such farming
implements as are required for our own
use. Capital is accumulating and will
soon be abundant enough for any safe
manufacturing investment We have
home-made brooms and barrels ; it is
time that we had home-made reaping,
mowing and threshing machines, and we
are pleased to know that our friend J. W.
Lewis, of this City, has some intention of
embarking in the business soon in a gen
eral way, on a large scale. His Union Plow
cannot be beat at present; and farmers are
advised to give him a special call.
Correction. Last week we were a lit
tle vexed at seeing a pool of blood at our
door one fine morning, and made mention
of it, basing our remarks upon rumors
which caused us to believe that it came in
consequence of the dissipation of a Mr.
Shields. True : he was the man who bled;
but we liave since been informed that he
was m no way to blame. He had been in
vited to attend the call given overhead by
the Good Templars ; was met on the stairs
by two men not participants of the party,
and was assaulted by them, being knocked
down by a club in the hands of one man,
and then beaten by them both. He was
entirely blameless, and we regret that we
have caused a wrong impression to go
abroad concerning an innocent man.
The Weather. This very popular
theme has been the topic of conversation
in this vicinity for a week. The Weather
has been delightful. We have not felt
that it was Winter, but more that Autumn
was wandering on down the descending
path. The course of the wind has been
free from the Noit'i, almost the ent re
week, but a drift to the Soiitr on Thursday
night brought us a few drops of rain.
Serenade. The past week has been
such a beautiful one that we believe it has
been enjoyed by all. The evenings were
extremely propitious, not only for moon
light proraenaders, but for the beautiful
serenades of the Oregon City Crass Band,
under the leadership of Mr. Thomas F.
Miller. The pure atmosphere of midnight
was resonant with the strains of music on
Thursday evening, and the players kindly
remembered us, in their round. If feel
ings are any guide, we abound in grateful
thanks to them for their favor.
Let is Have One. Since the volunteer
fire department of San Francisco has been
disbanded and a paid one substitute! in
its stead we learn that hand and steam en
gines, with jumpers and carriages, can be
purchased at extravagantly low prices.
Now is the time when Oregon City should
put in an offer for a fire engine.
Real Estate Sale. The land sold by
Capt. Hedges on Tuesday last being 320
acres of the estate of Wm. Arthur, Sen.,
deceased was purchased by Mr. Michael
Fuller, at the low figure of Sl.COO a good
bargain for the purchaser.
Mr. Dcncan.3 Successor. Mr. Wortley,
late of the Willamette Woolen Factory, at
Salem.has taken the superintendency of the
Factory in this City. Mr. R. II. Duncan,
late Superintendent, has left, to take
charge of the Brownsville Factory.
. Tue Lyceum. The question for discus
sion next Tuesday evening before the ly
ceum of this city is upon the subject of
the United States assuming an immediate
protectorate over the Republic of Mexico.

It is also an excellent remedy for females
who suffer from difficult menstruation, giving
almost immediate relief to the spasms that so
frequently accompany that period.

Dr. BoraxE: Last Winter I was nearly
dead, bv an attack of inflammatory rheuma
'tism. "I suffered the most excruciating
pains for about five weeks, without anv 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 i n three days. Sure enough,
although I was utterly helpless, and cou .
veyed to vour house in a carriage, and car
ried into it by three stout men, and by thcrh
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 carnage. On
the fourth day I discharged my carriage and
walked, with a friend's aid, the entire dis
tance to your house (nearly a .'mile) and
home arrain. and so on until cured. I felt
myself a well man. And now I am happy
to"do you this little service, of publicly cer
tifying to the simple truth, leaving it to do

An Interesting Letter.

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
lust. I will anticipate somewhat his report
of the facts by saying that on the loth of
August he made me a. visit, " the very pic
ture of good health " Time, which tries
and proves all things, has sulliciently tested
this case, and shown that neither relapse nor
collapse have followed, the cuie is .perfect,
and can be cited anions the scores of similar
cases' the result of my improved mod of
treating diseases without medicine.

pleasure and srjtisfaction that 1 now let you
know of my good health. Looking back
gj upon whajt 1 have passed through, it seems
i as if I had been lifted from the grave, and I
think it my duty to acknowledge to you and
the world the benefit I derived fro a water
treatment as administered by you in your
celebrated baths. It was in August 1304,
when disease developed itself with a severe
cough. I then took medicines, getting
worse with "chills, fevers, loss of strength,
and was profiounced consumptive. This
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 cured here. I went to San Francisco,
and while waiting for a ship called upon Dr.
Bourne, who stated that a trip to the Islands
would probably result disastrously, was
wholly unnecessary, as I could be specdilv
cured at his establishment. I placed myself
nnder his treatment, and in one week wan
so much improved I thought I could risk re
turning home and do my duty as Engineer
on the Central .Pacific Railroad. The Doc
tor objected, but I thought I knew better,
and returned to duly. In about two weeks
my cough returned, and I kept getting
worse, and contrary to Dr. Bourne 5 injunc
tion never to take medicine again, ccminitted
that folly, and soon was so completely run
down that 1 could scarcely walK; so, as a
last resort, I concluded once rioreto try th
Water Cure. I went to San Francisco few
of my friends expecting me to return; in
fact I thought my return doubtful. On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
14, IbiJo) I was not able to t into the bath
without assistance, but in a tew days I beg;a
to recover myself again. I remained with
him only six weeks, when I felt a "wiser
and better man," without the aid of medi
cine. I have kow been at work several
weeks, and 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' and Gentlemen's Depart
ments, and I cannot say too muca in praise
of the Doctor's kind attentions to his pa-
This letter I wtite for tho benefit of all tho
ailiicted, to be used as the Doctor decides,
and should it be the means of directing any
to his care and treatment who (as they as
suredly will) find relief, I will be paid for
my trouble. JAMES CAMPBELL,
Engineer Central l'acitic Railroad.
Sax Fraxcisco, Aug. 22, 1605.
Advised by the undersigned, Mr. James
Campbell, of the Central Pacific Railroad,
(who was then in a most deplorable state of
kill health) placed himself under the care ot
fDr. Bourne, the Wafer Cure Physician.
Some six months afterward he visitca the
city; when I accidentally met him at Dr.
Bourne's establishment, and am happy to
say, restored' to the enjoyment of j'ood
health, and in fine spirits.
rjr 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 relief is afForded in a'dvanced stages of
consumption. Rheumatism, paralysis, neu
ralgia, fever and aguc,.droDsy. etc, etc., arc
also cured quickly, pleasantly and econom
ically. No medicine whatever.
Dr. Bourne takes the liberty to publish tb?
above a- many persons had "prophesied Itis
relapse into his former condition, on return
ing to his duties, of the writer of an ' Inter
esting Letter," whese statements concerning
the care of a well defined case of consump
tion have recentlv attracted ko much atten
tion to the Water Cure, as improved unou
and practised by Dr. Bourne. This addi
tional testimony must prove satisfactory to
all reasonable mind?. It should be remem
bered that Dr. Bourne uses no medicine
whatever, and that his patients almost uni
versally are those who failed to receive re
lief from the medical practitioners; 3-et tber
are cured with great rapidity, and iu"a pleas
ant aad agreeable manner. " No. 10, Ma-on:c
