that we are not a musical people ; upon
wh it ground. I know not. If the peo
ple are not taught music, we ought not to
expect them to" be musicians. Tib expect
perso.) t he a grammarian who has
never studied gran. mar, is absurd ; so it
would be equally absyrd to expect a per
son to be a musician who has never studied
the science of music, a ni if they had the
training they would be r. musical people.
!ut to" accomplish this, we must begin
ihf children, it is with them we must
irk. We do not wait
till the children
are grown up to oe men aim women oe
t'ore'we teach them to read and cipher ;
but instruct them in these things while
their minds are active and vigorous, so
that this knowledge may grow with their
growth and strengthen with their strength.
While we have singing schools taught
here and there, which are as oasis in a
desert lan. I ; how few of them are for the
children. J-ome good is accomplished by
theseP singing schools: but how little.
Few indeed of those who attend a shori
course of musical instruction ever make
musicians. Had these instructions been
given while they were at school ; ii" every
,day they had received a short lesson in
jiv.i-dc they would have been mu-icians.

Ouruon d ry Skm:xauy. It is generally
known that this Institution of learning,
ha been sold to the Common Council of
pur city for school purposes, but the circum
stances connected with its hist iry have,
perhaps, been misapprehended by some,
Hiid an explanation may not bo inappro
priate. The property was turned over to
Gov. Aberuelhy for debt, when greatly de
preciated in value, arid subsequently sold
by him to the. Missionary Society, and
?vl'ei'.vard given by that Society to the M.
Ii. Conference, for Educational purposes,
and of course became the propetty of the
conference. The conference had no power
to sell it lor oilier than school purposes,
and the proceeds belonged to the con
ference fund,' hence it was very proper,
as all can .see, that the proceeds be used
for the purposes of general education,
frit under the peculiar circumstances it
r.n thought equitable to sjII to the city
m low as possible. The trustees, appoint
ed to dispose of the property, did not
fuel that it was property to be speculated
upon, and this is the reason of its low cost.
They felt that it was still to be an institu
tion of learning, and realized that although
the price was merely nominal $2,000 lor
the building and block of land yet it was I
no more than just that the Irausfer should
be made for such sum. It is valuable
property, and every citizen of the place j
may well congratulate himself upon the. j
success of the Hoard in procuring it at the

Every moment lightly shaken, rau itself in
golden sands ;
Love to"Sk up the harp of Life, and smoie on

Those were our sentiments, and we
were muchly refieshed, a few days since,
yy;eeing a pair of nice people who we
felt sure were only just married, they were
so lond of each other. She was a delicate
sweet picture of womanhood that a man
who had'nt' already got the very best
woman in the world, would be sure to
fall in love with ; and the man. who of
course did nt inspire any passion in us.
seemed to suit her exactly. It did us good
to see 'em so happy, and we hoped their

Gone Below. Maj. Thomas Charman,
goes below to-day, to lay in a large amount
Jf clothing, dry goods, etc., for the fall
trade. He informs us that it is his inten
tion to buy the same as he would do in
brisk times, as his business seems to jus
tiff him in doing so.

iT Valuable favor,
DiaouDEKLY. It becomes our painful
duty no record a circumstance that hap
pened in this city on Thursday night of
last week, involving a man in difficulty
who hasj by preserving industry and
stra'ghforwardness, at least since we came
to the city, been entitled to respect. It
seems that he formerly had an appetite
for liquor, but through the midum of the
Templars lias for months been a strictly
sber person. On the night in question,
however, the devil got into him, and he
visited the saloons imbibing quite freely.
When at the saloon of Mr. II umbel he be
came disorderly, and fired three or four
shots from a revolver at Mr. I umbel. The
latter escaped unhurt, but the matter was
taken notice of by the authorities, as it
should be. and tiie guilty party was ar
raigned before Justice Moore, on two
charges, which were examined into, and
defendant was remanded to jail, to wait
three months, and adjudged to pay all
costs of prosecution. We suppress the
name of the defendant as it is the first
accusation Ave ever heard against him,
and hope than when he retires irom du
rance vile he may be a wiser and better
A QuKsnox. On Monday evening there
was considerable discussion in the Coun
cil as to the manner of paying for the
-improvement" of Center street, and
other parts of the city on the bluff.' It is
a question with us whether Center street
has been improved. As a property hol
der we should test the matter in a suit at
law before paying any charges on account
of what has been done. We think the
labor expended has been valuable, but
not to the adjacent property' by anv
means. It only serves to carry out the
design of the original appropriation to
wit : repairing roads leading into the citv.
As a permanent improvement to the street
we do not regard it as at all satisfactorv.
In fact, one half the property is left isola
ted from the street on account of the " improvement."
CoNGKArii.ATc.iiY. "When we express
our joy at the good fortunes of our friend
T. P. Ki'.len, Esq., in his admission to the
bar a; the present term of the Supreme
Court in so highly and satisfactory a man
ner, w ith a class of nine others, we but re
iterate the sentiments of this community,
and all who know Pro. Pkxt. lie was
admitted with all the honors, and now it
must be admitted, further, that the tree of
the profession will never suffer from this
graft. We believe this inoculation will
only serve in time to extend the lists of
public estimation of the law. The exam
ination took place on Wednesday evening,
the 4th, and the class was admitted on the
following morning, after listening to an
able and interesting advisory lecture by
Chief Justice Shattuck.
Sai.k ok Fast IIoiisKs. On the 11th of
August Robert Homier, of the New York
I.edjer, visited Niagara Falls for the first
time. In the afternoon lie went down to
Buffalo and witnessed the speed of Dex
ter. oi)iici', having a passion for all the
best tilings, says he could not, buy the
falls, so he took Dexter at SoO.OJt), and on
last Tuesday this noble animal went into
his private, stable, along with Peerless, the
Auburn Horse, I'oeahonlctit, 1 'aimer, and
Fiatbuth, never again to trot in public for
money. . . .On the same day Mr. J. L. Par
low of this city, sold Waterloo, to go into
a private stable' in Yamhill county the
price is not stated, although it is'undci
stoed to lie less than JoO.OUJ.

II.LK-rn!CK Ct.ot;hx;. Rarman Bros,
says the Jferald, exhibited to our astonished
vision full suits, for which, one year ago,
they paid $22, and now they- are enabled
to sell them, by cheap purchases, pt $15,
particularly the Harrison cassimere suits.
They were bought at auction in San Fran
cisco, at the sale of J. Si ligman, which
enables thein to sell unreasonably low.
The senior of the linn informs us that
Leopold I'arnum will hereaRer remain in

Tub Hakvkst. Farmers are rapidly
finishing up their threshing. Crops have
been garnered in excellent condition litis
year. The yield in the valley is fuliy nj;
to the average. In Marion county the
winter wheat is most excellent. The crop
in Umpqua and Rogue riv er valleys are a
partial failure, owing to the drouth, much
of the spring crop not having had a shower
of rain after it was sown. The llax crop
has not been as good this year as was an
ticipated, but still, producers arc not dis
couraged. Base Pali, Challenge Accepted. At a
meeting of the Clackamas Base Ball Club,
held at. their rooms in this city on Tuesday
evening, it was resolved that the First
Nine accept the challenge of the Portland
Pioneers, to plav at the Slate Fair on Fri
ll iy. October 11th. And also, that the
Second Nine challenge the Willamette?, of
Salem, to play a match game during the
State Fair, anv dav previous to Friday the

for several years past has occupied some
position or other in t'c newspaper line in
Portland, lately local on the llerakl, lias
returned from California, whither he went
lately on a visit and to recover his health.
He received some benefit, Ave are glad to
learn, and will shortly again enter into
business this time on his own account,
in the publication of a daily evening news
paper at the Emporium. Such a paper
ought to find suhsistance in Portland.
Land Sai.k. Secretary and Acting Gov
ernor May, Acting Treasurer T. McF. Pat
ton, and Col. Isaac R. Moores. as Commis
sioners for the sale of Public School lauds
in this State, paid Oregon City a visit on
Tuesday last, and offered the tracts in
Clackamas county for sale. Either the
land is so poor nobody would have it -or
else people- were afraid to bid for only
about $550 worth was disposed of.
i( Douglas Apples." Mr. Lary Burns,
of the West Side, paid our oQice a visit on
Tuesday last, leaving with us a basket of
selected apples, which are equal, iivsize
and taste, to any we have ever seen on
this const for that matter any where else.
Mr. Burns says this is Democratic fruit,
and ho challenges any Republican to beat
it. They were certainly nice apples.
Donation- Patents. Mr- Wade, of the
Land Office in this city, informs us that br
the last eastern mail he received 58 Dona
tion Patents, from the General Land Of
fice at Washington City. Our advice to
the people of Oregon is that they had bet
ter look out for their patents, and call at
the Land Offices for them.
Recovered. Capt. S. D. Pope, of the
Clackamas, we are happy to announce has
recovered from a late very serious attack
of a bar bar.
Fkcit. The fruit crop in this county
this year is very heavy, and unless resort
is had to drying and preserving in lar;
quantities, a great deal of it will perish.

The Overland Mail brings dates from
New York to August 14th, at which time
business generally, which it was thought
good crops and a plethora of money would
stimulate into renewed activity, remained
very dull, and merchants w ere pursuing
the same cautious policy that mazked all
their operations all last winter and spring.
The Shipping List remarks :
It is really a sad and deplorable state of
things, when the productive industry of a
young country, rich in natural resources,
and capable of indefinite expansion, finds
Unnecessary to restrict its efforts and ener
gies for want of a paying market for its
products. It is a spectacle which every
patriotic American must grieve to see; but
we may as well look the ugly fact in the
face, and then we shall understand that
our languishing industry can only be re
vived by freeing both commerce ami pro
duction from some of their crushing burth
ens and restrictions'
Meanwhile, says the Bulletin correspond
ent, stock speculations are the rage, and
through the glut of money prices of the
" fancies"' are being run up considerably
above the point warranted by intrinsic
On the 5th wheat was worth $2 05 j,
bushel in New York, and flour $13 75 ; in
Liverpool on the same day wheat was
quoted firm at 13s Cd cental.
In San Francisco on the 12th wheat was
firm at 61 80 1 100 ; flour $0 25 bbl.;
bacon 11015 cts. ; hams 21(,21i cts.
The Portland market remains quiet at
the quotations of last week, and the market
of this city is without interest.
Dried apples are plentiful and cheap,
dried peaches will be scarce, and notwith
standing the enormous crop, plums arc
not very plentiful.
