TOWN AND COUNTY.
at Aiistgr. On last Sunday
about 3 o'clock an -attempt
to fire the Enterprise building.
and but for the vigilance of Marshal Ryan,
undoubtedly tne structure, wnn iw con
' tents. M ould have been laid in ruins. As
- eited by Mr. Robert Totter, Mr. Ryan ex-
tinfjuished the flames before any damage
-was done. We shall ever hold them in
crateful remembrance for this service.
We are at a loss to account for the matter,
i and have so far been unable to base the
S ea3t suspicion upon any person who could
findsthe heart to do us sPsorc an injury.
; That the fire wasepet is beyond a doubt,
o rne IUach was applied to dry shavings
and shingle?, beneath the porch on the
. north side of the building, and the course
of the wiftd was such as to fan the flames
into quick and destructive heat.. The
opening has been used as a repository for
ivoo A few days before ChristsMs it
was thoroughly cleared of all boards, and
combustible materials, and only one wag
on load of bark remained, to our knowl
Ara, l.nt. we have &iee been informed
that for two dav previous shavings and
tihingles were seen there. This is as mys
terious to us. as it is singular who coul
have applied the match. When Mr. Ryan
discovered the fire he was nearly at the
extreme southern end of Main street and
seeing the reflection upon the brick build
ing of Messrs. J. II. Raton, and J. Myers
A Bro., hastened to the spot, and was for
tunately !n time to save a conflagration,
as above stated. When we consider that
Portland is overflowing with roughs, and
that theiving operations are of every day
occurrence there, we naturally enough
conclude that this takes its fountain head
in the same directig). and it is more than
nossible that the " bovs,J have decided
upon exteiling their works to Oregon
City. It stands our people in hand to
look out for them, and in consideration of
the .service Mr. Ryan has been to us, as
Night Watchman, we bespeak for him a
better support than he has in past had
giveu him. The City Council pay him
but a nominal figure for these services,
and such beiifg the case it would befell
if citizens who have vital interests at stake,
would contribute something monthly to
the support of his office. We are entirely
dependent upon his vigilance, to protect
us, not only from nvmtiight Assassins and
incendiarism, but trom the usual, or or-
linaryeoccurreiices of fires, etc.. and he
should be well paid for the duties he per

SEBjXAi.j5.qn SllIDiav last the Oregon
City Frass Band enlivened the City with
piusic from fie Promenade, or High street.
Wno Should Make Streets. At the
last meeting of the city council, a petition
was received, numerously signed by citi
zens of Canemah, praying for an appropria
tion of $50, to aid in the completion of
the proposed plank walk, connecting this
city with that. After some discussion, oji
motion to' appropriate $20 the same was
lost, and the petition was next indefinitely
postponed. During the arguments, pro
and con, several localities within the cor
porate limits of the city, where work is
sadly needed, were brought to view, as
showing that there were plenty of places
where money might be more justly ex
pended, and that notwithstanding the walk
proposed to Canemah should bebuilt, and
would be a public benefit, the city proper
had no authority to make an appropriation
for such purpose from the public treasury.
The question was asked by one, member,
Who should make the streets," and was
answered by another, that in his opinion
the adjacent property should be made to
pay the expenses of street improvement.
The city of Portland was a long time with
out passable avenues. ThereVas always
a wrangle about the subject, and whenever
an improvement was proposed, it was de
feated, until the present charter was en
acted. Now, when a street is to be im
proved in that city there is no fuss made
about it the cost of the work is assessed
to the adjacent lots or blocks, and it is
paid up promptly, and the property is so
much enhanced in value. In this city
there is much street work needed at pres
ent, and it will continue to increase, and
if personal property should be assessed,
and taxes levied to pay for this work from
the general fund, we opine that it would
result in a similar way of deriving from
among us that we most want : men whose
business pursuits are such as to draw about
them large amounts of personal property.
The poll tax raised in Portland, is appro
priated to the county roads, raid in this
we think Oregon City might profit by fol
lowing the example. Wehall never ask
the citv to put its fingers' in the ereneral
fund to pay for improving any real prop
erty we might happen to be in possession
or, no sooner than we would ask of them
au appropriation to build a house, nor do
we think unv one else should. The law
needs an amendment, that the streets of
OregoanCity may be improved at the ex-
pease of those rightfully benefitted.
Ordered Oie. A long obstructed al
ley, through the block opposite the Court
House, was recently ordered to be opened
byvthe City Couucil. As suggested a few
weeki ago, we are comparatively a stran
ger in the place, and have vet to learn
many thinars regarding matters in the city
we have adopted as ouf future home.
How that alley came to be obstructed in
the first place, by the erection of a build
ing tvp stones in height, and apparently
pretty old, we have not taken pains to in
quire, lhat it ought not to have been al
lowed is pretty certain, to our candid rea
soning, however, and that it should be
opened, if theiitle yet rests with the city,
is quite as sure. The practice of allowing
streets and alleys.CJoads. etc., to be fenced
up by private parties, in localities sparsely
poputatedSgenerally tends to litigation, is
fraught with mischief, and ought never to
be entertained by the people's cuardians
Another Flight. We have seen the
plan for a second flight of steps, to lead
up the iun, trom near the base of H?cond
street. The plan looks well,, and the
steps would undoubtedly be of "service, in
that locality. Property "on the bluff is be
ing rajiidly converted to use of tin; citizens
and the more ways there are of ffottmor m
the steep the better. We look to the time
as being near at hand when some inventive
genius will apply for the right to erect a
steam appliance, which will serve to ele-
vate the human kind, as well as the
and chatties, to the upper story of the
at a certain rate of toll.
Water Works. At the last meeting of
the City Council a proposition was submit
ted, providing for the laying of street mains.
the erection of
voir with capa
ify sufficient to sunrdy the
city with water, for both private and pub
lic neeessitiw. The proposition was refer
red tfjPa committee, which now has the
subject under consideration. It is earnestly
hoped that some action mav be had for the
furtherance of the project. This will 'be
the case, most likely, if the articles of the
proposal are not at variance with the city
Improving j. We
that Mr. John II.
had is riht lower limb broken by a fall, is
rapidly improving. He is able to walk
about the city with the aid of crutches,
but does not yet dare attemnt to do anv-
thinjx in his
lin.; of business. He has a"n
assortment of saddles and Inr-
ness ready made, which customers can ob-
I . . .
tainupon calling at the shop, opposite
the Extei:pi:ise olfice.
Accident. Capt. Geo. A. Pease of this
city met with a serious mirdiap at Salem,
daring fp holidays. Just at the boat was
landing a fire-cracker, thrown by iome in
nocent youth, struck his right eye. and ex
ploded inflicting a most painful and
dangerous wound. He is yet scarcely able
to attend to business, but was present at
the meeting of Councilmcn on Monday
evening, and filled his seat during most of
ession of the Board.
Oregon Paper. We have at last par-cr
of Gregen manufacture ! The wni-fcs ,r
the company were started on Thursday,
and turned out as good quality of wrap
ping paper as can be made of the same
material anywhere. 9)n Monday the
works will be put into full operation, and
in future people will not be required to
send abroad for paper.
Impromptu Meeting. A few days since,
by chance some half dozen pioneers of
Oregon met together at the store of Messrs.
Charrnan Bros., in this city. There was
W. W. Buck, Lloyd Brooke, S. W. Moss,
J. G. Campbell, James Stephens, and Rob
ert Newell, all old residenters, who are
perfectly capable of telling as good jokes
as any of the :4'J-ers of 'Frisco.
Seen its Day. On Thursday the steamer
Hlml, once a favorite but now super
annuated, was brought up to the P. T.
Company's dock in this city, and men set
to work in removing her machinery, which
will go into a new boat.
Personal. Capt. J. D. .Miller, who has
for years been employed in navigating the
Willamette above this citv, has lately re
ceived the appointment of Socretarv and
Treasurer of the Paper Mill Company.

The Ltxcolx. A friend passing through
the City on Tuesday sent us his compli

Da. Bourne: Last Winter 1 was nearly
dead, by an at tack of inflammatory rheuma-
tism. I suffered the most excruciating -pains
for about five weeks, without any hopei
of relief, whan a friend hearing of my illness,
called to see me, and assured me that if I
would stop 41 drugging and dosing" and go
to you, that you would have me walking
about the streets iu ttiree days. Sure enough,
although I was utterly helpless, and con
f eyed to your house in a carriage, and car
ried into it by three stout men, and by them
lifted into the bath, yet, on coming out of it,
I largely assisted myself, doing much to- 5
wards dressing, and, without assistance,
walked from the bath to the carriage. On5
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 again, and so on until cured. I felt
myself a well man. And .now I ain happy
to do you this little service, of publicly cer
tifying to the simple truth, leaving it to do
its work among my friends and acquaint
ances as may chance to see this.

An Interesting Letter)
Very few persons, even among physicians',
would have been willing upon anyterras to
have been in the condition of theMvriter of
the following letter ou the 14th of February
last. I will anticipate somewhat bis report
of the facts by saying that on the 15th of
August he made me a visit, " 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 fallowed, the cure is perfect,
and can be cited among the scores of similar
cases tne result 01 my improveu moa 01
treating diseases without medicine.
G. M. BOURNE,
Water Cure Physician,
No. 10, Masonic Temple, Pt street.
Sacramento, April SO,
Dr. G. M. Bourne Dear Sir : 1. is-Vitl
Eleasure and satisfaction that 1 now let you
now of my good health. Looking back
upon what T have passed through, it seems
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 froji water
treatment as administered by youjn your
celebrated baths. It was in August 1864,
when disease developed itself with a severe
cough. I then took medicines, getting
worse with chill3, fevers, loss of strength,
and was pronounced consumptive. This
set me to thinkrng, and linally I 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 speedily
cured at hU establishment. I placed myself
nnder his Treatment, and in one week waa
so much improved I thought I could risk re
turning home and do my duty as Engineer
on the Central Pacific R'ailroad. The Doc
tor objected, bat I thought I knew better,
and 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 more to try tha
Water Cure. I went to San Francisco few
of my friends expecting me to return; in
fact 1 thought my rturn doubtful. On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
14, lb65) I was net able to get into the bath
without assistance, bat in a tew days I began
to recover myself again. I remained with
mm only six weeks, when I felt a "wiser
and better man," without the aid of medi
cine. I have row been at work several
weeks, and find that I am gaining every day
and at present bid fair to be stouter than
ever bclore. Persons visiting the Doctor's
establishment una it just wnat 11 snouio oe,
both in the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Depart
ments, and I cannot say too much in pnise
of the Doctor's kind attentions to Lis pa
tients. This letter I wnte for(Jhe benefit of all the
afilicted, 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
surcdlv will) find relief, I wiil be paid for
my troubie. JAMES CAMPBELL,
Engineer Central Pacific Railroad.
San Francisco, Aug. 22, 1865.
Adrised bv the undersigned, Mr. 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.
Snrr.e six months afterward he visited the
city, when I accidentally met him at Dr.
Rourne's establishment, and am bappy to
say, restored 10 me enjoyment ot guuu
health, and in fine spirits.
Dr. jSbume treats all diseases of tho
throat, chest and lungs which includes dip.
theria, bronchitis, incipient consumption,
pleurisy, croup, etc., with great success,
Great relief is afforded in advanced stages of
consumption. Rheumatism, paralysis, neu-.
ralgia, fever and ague, dropsy, etc , etc., ary
also cured quickly, pleasantly and econom
ically. OTo medicine whatetsr.
Dr. Bourne takes the liberty to publish tho
above a3 many persons had prophesied his
reiapse into his tryrmer condition, on return
ing to his duties, of the writer of an Inter
estiug Letter,'1 whose statements concerning;
the cure cf a well defined case of consump
tion have recently attracted so much attend
tion ta the Water Cure, as improved upon
aod practised by Dr. Bourne, This addi-
tioual festfmony must prove satisfactory tt
ail reasonable minds. It should be rcmem-
befed that Dr. Bourne uses no medicint
whatever, and that his patient3 almest uni-
versany are mose wno tailed to receive r
