Commodore Watson -This veteran
naval officer is now in Portland.
CoiORAo Klkctiox. The entire
Union ticket was elected in Colorado.
Isr Okoer. The Oregon Iron
Works are again in full operation,
OK.vssnorPEKS. The crops in CoU
crado this year were mostly destroy

Fou Sitka. The John L. Stevens
will leave San Francisco on Monday
next, for Sitka, touching at Victoria.
IIaight's Majority-. The result
of the election in California is now
very well known. Haight figures at
9,-iQQ over his opponent.
Excursion. The Fenian Guard,
of Poitland, chartered the steamer
John H. Couch and gave a target ex
cursion and pic nic at Oswego, on
Thursday last, enjoying a merry day.
The Sound Mail. In future the
mail for Monticello, Olympia, and
Victoria, will Icav Portland on the
mornirjgs of Monday. Wednesday,
and 1 delay, connecting through.
National Banks. Out of the 1,
071 national banks that have been or
ganized in various parts of the coun
try, there have less than twenty-five
fuspensed operations, and only part
of these were failures.
Eastern Elections. The Spates
of Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, and
Pennsylvania, hold elections for State
c Ulcers on the second Tuesday of next
month. On the first Thursday in
November, Massachusetts, Wisconsin
and other States, elect.
Billiards. D.lliard tables arc in
future to be used in the British Ar
my, 8300,000 in gold having recent
ly been appropriated by Parliament
to supply these tables to the army
officers in the various barracks Ihro'
;ut the world.
Emigration. We see a statement
that Kansas has sent an emigrant
Hent to Europe. The result of the
movement is easily comprehended.
Wben will Oregon do something in
the matter of posting people who are
anxious to better their condition, with
regard to the advantages existing
Mark Twain. Maik Twain is do
irg the Holy Land, and letter writing
thereon, which the Alia copyrights.
We must confess to experiencing
some doubts as to his originality, says
the Times, when we are told that his
famous frog story was written by
S m. Seabough, now of the Sacra
mento Union, and appropriated by
Mark as his own.
Alaska. This name, which has
been applied to Russian America, sig
nifies continent or mainland, as distin
gu'shed from little islands, or islands
of the Kodiac, Sohumaguiski and
Aleutian groups, and those in Kara
Fchalka sea and the Behrir.g straits
The term Alaska is used by the na'
dves and Russian settlers, to include
or apply to all the Russian possessions
on the American continent.
Dbad. Hon. James A. McDou
.gal, late United States Senator from
California, died at Albany, N. Y., on
the 3d inst. As a man of abilitv,
we believe it is generally acknowl
edged that he had fuw snperiors in
the nation, but his career in Congress
vas such as to disappoint and mortify
even those vr?o elected him, and his
death furnishes another illustration of
the evils of intemperance.
Commissioner3. On recount of the
extent of the Oregon district, the
provision of law for the taking of
oaths in bankruptcy is considered in
adequate and inconvenient, hence the
following persons have been appoint
ed by Judge M. P. Ueady, eommiss
sioners of the U. S. Circuit Court for
this district to take such oaths :
Wm. Hoffman, Jacksonville ; Jas.
Walton, Rosebnrg: I). M. Risdon,
Eugene; T. B. Odcneal, Corvallis ;
P. L. Willis, Salem; Geo. II. Stew
an, Lafayette ; F. O. McCown Ore

Iforo; Sneddon, Astoria; O. N.
Denny, Dalles City; Lncien Evarts,
Utnutilla; Fredrick Adams, Canyon
;;ty ; C. M. Foster, Baker county ;
M. Baker, Union county ; Frank
Dalton, Albany; J. Coli ins. Dallas.
Financial. With gold at 1 101,
fays the New York Tribune of Au
gust 5tli, the present is a-good time
for the Secretary to sell the soperflu
rus coin in the Treasury. Theques-
U-r, is often asked, why with money
at 2 per cent, in England, and gold
a; 140, he dots not promptly give the
market $20,000,000, and use the
proceeds in destroying $5,000,000 of
Iain legal tenders per month? Why,
indeed I The reason is obvious. Tlie
currency is needed for bnsiness. It
r.raws no interest. It ia the best cur
rency in the nation, nr.d should be
substituted entirely for the issues of
the national bar k. It the Secretary
would sell h:s Jwenty millions, says
the Times, ana buy up Govrmjaeat
bonds which draw interest and tiestro-v
.htm, it would be much better.
Business promises to improve some
little, at all events. The dispatches
show an improved tone in the produce
markets of San Francisco. On the
16th flour advanced 25 cents on the
barrel, and there is now a good de
mand at $6 50 to $G 75, which is 50
to 15 cents per barrel in advance of
the quotations transmitted one week
ago to day.
Wheat is correspondingly firmer,
and the same qualities which were
steady and unchanged on the 14th, at
the current rate of Si 80 to $1 85,
we are now told are firm at $2 00 to
$2 10, with exceptional sales at 2 12
to $2 15 per 100 pounds.
No explanations accompany these
reports, and we are not the only ones
at a loss to account fur the sudden
inflation. The Oregonian says :
There has been a slight flutter in
certain flour circles for a couple of
days, in consequence of favorable
telegrams from San Francisco; knows
ing very well that the demand there
might be very strong merely for a
day or two, to complete a cargo for
a vessel for instance, and then drop to
the old figure, dealers here were a
little cautious about offering an ad
vance. The news of a continued firm
ness and a still further advance in
the markets below will have tho ef
fect to advance most brands in this
citv. Indeed, we hear it stated that
one, at least, of the leading brands,
has been put up fifty cents.
For several years past this portion
of Oregon has been almost wholly
dependent upon the northern mines
as a market for her surplus produc
tions, but in 18G5 tho idea that the
several pursuits of mining and agri
culture were so different that both
could not be pursued in the neighbor
hood of each other, was exploded, at
least so far as Oregon is concerned,
for now flour can be shipped down
the Columbia river with nearly the
same facility as formerly it was sent
up. v nat to uo wun oui gram be
came an important matter with some,
but by referring back, to the prices
curnnt at the time Walla Wa''a was
supplied through Portland, we find
no maiked changes in comparison to
the rulirg figures of today. The
markets of the world have turned
to look in this direction fur breads
stuffs " since the discovery of Boise,"
besides all which we are making a
way to the Indies " in the course of
tho setting sun" a very important
thing. These two considerations are
sufficient explanation for the advance
in wheat and Hoc-, just mentioned.
As regards tha condition of the
fruit markets upon this coast we are
uniformed and it seen.s nearly p.n
impossibility to ascertain facts suffi
cient to predicate an opinion upon.
That fruit of every variety is abund
ant is generally known and the pre
vailing impres-ion is that, green fruit
must remain cheap. In order that
our orchards may be made to yield
a revenue, extra labor must be ap
plied, and reconrse had to preserving.
Dried fruits can scarcely ever fail to
meet with some demand.
Tho ruling prices for butter, eggs,
lard, cured meat and vegetables, is
merely nominal, and there isneedof no
further comment than a reference to
our prices current.
The Nicaragua Route. On the
15th ult., at sea, on board the Amer
ica, of the North American Steam
ship Company, the passengers held
a meeting, and expressed themselves
in this manner:
4i Having been cautioned by in
tercsted parties in New York against
risking our lives by traveling to Cal
ifornia via Nicaragua, and having
just arrived by that line at San Fran
Cisco, the undersigned take this
means to notify the traveling public
that the Nicaragua Transit Route is
perfectly and absolutely free from
sickness ot any kind whatever, and
that the report of cholera so indus
triously circulated in New York,
(ai d, we presume by the same inter
ested parties in California.) are false
from beginning to end, ai;d entirely
without foundation; and we particu
'lariy desire that this notice be widely-
circulated and advertised, for the in
formation of those who may be travel
ing to or from California and New
The Overland Route The Salt
Luke Telegraph pays a deserved
compliment to the promptness and en
ergy which has won so high a reputa
tion for Wells, Fargo & Co. on the
Pacific coast. Had circumstances
been different, that Fame promptness
and energy would hav? achieved a
similar success on the great over
land route. But the company
had harr-Sy taken possession of the
line and put in proper order, when
the trouble on the railroads began.
Frequently there would be no mail
to carry for a week, and then it would
come into them by the car load. Un
der these circumstances no regularity
could be expected. Then the Indian
war began, which only rmdered the
difficult ies worse. W henever the road
was impassable the mails would accu
mulate. A delay of three or four
days would cause the accumulation of
more mail sacks than coutd be trans
ported for ten dayg. Between Den
ver and Salt Lake a triweekly coach
only has been run for a portion of the
time, caused by losses of stock, and in
several instances a week has passed
without the passage of a coach. Be
tween Denver and the west their rule
lias been to carry the loekfd mail in
jr-fvte!:ff to any tfvrg- rise.
Church Dedication. -- The new
brick church edifice of the Christains
of Salem will be dedicated to morrow.
Pardoned. James Henry Frans
was pardoned from the Oregon Pen
itentiary on the 12th inst.
New Gretna Green. The trick of
going to sea in the Mist, to get mar
ried, had its " start" in Yamhill ,
Gone East. Senator Corbett went ;
to San Francisco by tho Orijlamme
last Saturday, en route to Washing
Lime. A company has been form
ed in Douglas county for the pur
pose of burning lime. It advertises
a superior article for sale.
The Slate Fair. If the State Fair
is as successful this year as the man
agers desire to make it, there will be
no cause for complaint when it is
Wasco Fair. The Mountaineer
publishes the list of premiums of the
Wasco county fair, to be held near
the Dalle?;, commencing on the 26th
inst. The list is liberal.
County Taxes. At the last session
of the County Commissioner's Court
in Marion county, we learn 15 mills
was levied. In Multnomah 18 mills.
And in Umatilla 21 mills was
Bereavments On the 29th of
June Mr. J. B. Cook, of Coos county,
was killed by a falling tree. Two
married daughters have since died.
One on the 10th of August and one
on the 24th day tf the same month.
School Lands Soli. School land
has been sold thus far by the Board
of Managers, as follows: Yamhill
county. $7,000; Washington, G00;
Multnomah, $3,500; Lnne, $9,5t)0;
Bemon, $4,000; Linn, $700; Polk,
$4,000; Clackamas, $500.
German Colony. A cotempnrary
says a move is on foot in San Fran
cisco to establish a German colony
in Alaska, our new possessions from
Russia. What in the world they
want to go to Alaska for, when Ore
gon is less than halfway between, is
a mystery to us.
The Triple Thunderer. Tho Al
bany Journal learns that Calvin B.
McDonald, Eq., who has been so
noted in California for his loyal and
caustic pen, contemplates visiting
Oregon for the object of embarking
in journalism. lie was editor of the
American Flag during the war.
Cougars. A few days since a
couyar attacked a colt on the IIHIs
boro road, as it was following its
dam, and the driver made quire an
effort before scaring it off About
ten days ago a large animal of the
same species devoured a hog, and a
calf, cn the premises of a farmer in
Linn county. This cougar was kill
cd next day.
Colored School at Salem. The
colored people of Salem have sup
p irted a school for their children du
ring the last six months, expending
therefor, $429 50, obtained by pri
vate subscription. The children are
said to have made veryr commenda
The. Reason. The Courier states
that W. S. Ladd, Esq., and Ex Gov.
Gibbs, of Portland, give their support
to tho Gaston wing of the Oregon
Central R. R., and that D. C. Lewis,
Chief Engineer, will commence a sur
vey of the Yamhill route next week.
Perhaps this will explain tho reason
of Mr. Ladd for refusing to act as a
trustee of the Clark wing.
New Wheal. The Linn county
farmers are delivering wheat at Al
bany at the rate of 5,000 bushels per
day those of Benton county bring it
to Corvallis at the rate of 1000 bush
els per day. it is thought that 70,
000 per day is en route to markets
like those for a week past. One
house in Idaho bis received 80.000
pounds of Hour from Grand Rondc
Valley, Union county.
Accident. Mr. Robert Gam mill,
formerly of this city, was fearfully,
if not fatally injured, on Thursday
last, while attempting to throw tho
Portland Dredger Engine off the
center which he was temporarily
employed to atterd. lie was thrown
into the machinery and horribly
crushed. Geo. B. Woodward, En
gineir en the dredger was called to
his assistance, and after a great effort
succeeded in extricaitng hira from his
terrible situation, and he was carsied
to Lis home in Portland.
Sanliam. Santiam has broken out
in a new spot. This time above Al
bany, and the Journal says: " If
there is no mistake, it is one of the
richest discoveries on the Pacific
coast." The samples which were as
sayed by a San Francisco firm, re
turn a gold value of $219.73 per ton,
and the parties who are interested in
this ledge say that they purposely
selected the most abundant and aver
age rock, and that thousands of tons
crop out ot the same kind.
Children's Aid Society. The an
nual report of the Oregon Children's
Aid Society has been issued. The
CWon is learns from it that the So
ciety now numbers fifty-three mem
bers in Salem, and has $750 dollars
in the treasury. The object of- the
association is to provide homes for
orphan and homeless destitute chil
dren in thi- State. The purpose of
the association is one that appeals
d-rectly to the hearts of all our citi
zens, and will doubtless be sustained
by the people. The move was in
augurated and Is being conducted by

Tlie Post's Washington letter gives
the conversation of one of Grant's

Grant's candidacy for Presidency.
He said he would not be President

it due to the people, if this is so, that
Grant should say it himself.
Reliable information from Charles

in its attempt at reconstruction.
Wade spoke in Cleveland, Ohio,
on the 12th. He thought the court'
try in as groat danger as when Sum

The Border States Union Conven
tion assembled in Baltimore on the
12th, Tennessee, Maryland, Dela

represented. The attendance from
each of these States was large. Rad

prominent members, recommending
that there be no distinction of color
in the exercise of the elective fran
chise. Letters have also been re
ceived from leading politicians, urg
in" the esfnblishment of equal rights
to every citizen throughout the Un
ion. There is considerable enthusi
asm among the members of the con
vention, and it is thought that the re
sult will be most favorable to the
Radical cause in all of the Border
States. The policy cf Johnson is the
subject of severe criticism and no
faith is entertained in his loyalty.
Tiie following permanent filet rs were
elected : President, Horace May

Fugle newspaper at Camden, Arkan
sas, was destroyed by soldiers, led on
by Major Pierce. Col. Gilbert, com
mander of the post, wrote to Gener
al Ord a letter, in which he said:
" The censures of the press, elirected
against the seivants cf the people,
may be endured; but General Ord
and the military force detailed to
enable him to perform his duties are
not servants cf the people of Aikan-sa-:,
but rather their masiers, and it
is felt to be a great piece of imper
tenancc for the papers of the State to
comment on military matters, under
any circumstances whatever." Gen
eral Ord, in reply, says: " Y'our IcU
ter in which you attempt to justify
the act of a party of soldiers misled
by an officer who forcibly entered a
citizen's prenrscs nnd destroyed his
property, is received. Y'ou will
please explain why this act was not
prevented by the post commander,
and if the requirements of the Thirty
S'cond Article ot War has be on
complied with. Your assertion that
tlie military forces are not servants
of the people of Arkansas, but their
masters, is unjust to b'th the pco'
pie and thr military, and unfounded
in law. Tho laws are fur the bent fit
of the people. The assumption that
a party of soldiers could alone forci
bly destiny property and commit a
gross violation -f the public pence,
would not be tolerated under a Na-
I.F0r.MATiox roil Immigrants. A
gentlemen from one of the Southern
States writes that a large number of
persons in the States lately in rc
y m re
bellion, would bke to ma I
homes in Oregon, if persons from
that portion of the Urdon would be
revived in a friend v snit-it bv tho
people of this State, says the union
ist. To all such we feel free in say-
ing that the people of Oregon have
not in tha past, nor do we believe
they will in the future, withhold a
friendly greeting to those who come
among them for the purpose of resid
ing, regardless of their nativity or
the State from which they hail.
There is not a State in the Union
that is not represented in our pres
ent population. The interests of the
State demands population, and to
that interest all the citizens are will
ing to make concessions of their in
dividual predilections, prejudices, or
antipathes, and, as a consirpuence of
this disposition of our people, the im
migrant from Massachusetts or Texas
will receive an equally friendly greet
ing from the old residents of the
YV arned. We have received a
note, from reliable source, says the
Advocate warning1 the public against
an importer, who has called himsn'f
John Ely, Dr. Hunter, Dr. Geo.
Levy, but whose real name is said to
be George Levison. He is a ready
and fluent speaker, sometimes passes
for a physician, and also for a Meth
odist Minister; claims to have been a
soldier in the Union ranks; makes
heavy drafts on the Masonic frater
nity. Instead of being jn the army
from 18G1 to 1SG4, ' it h affirmed
that George Levison was serving out
a three year's term in the State Pris
on of .New Jersey, for bigamy. The
public will do well to be on the look
out for the swindler, as he will likely
turn up somewhere on this coast.

Oregon City, Sept. 20th, 1SG7. f
By the steamship Oregon we have Hies
of San Francisco papers to the 11th, and
New York letters of August 21st. Ton
nage was very scarce in New York. The
activity in San Francisco is said to be as
tonishingly great. The quantity of goods
daily sent o.fF to the interior is consider
able, while the produce arriving from the
farming districts is far in excess of any
previous year. The total shipments of
treasure since Jan. 1st. lS(J7,to Aug. 10th,
are given at $30,131,013, against $32,8-10,-5S1
for a corresponding period last year.
Quite an encouraging prospect, although
we still note numerous articles en route to
the coast from Eastern supply ports that
should be produced here.
The quantity of fruit arriving at San
Francisco from the interior is excessive.
Thousands of boxes of pears, choice varie
ties, are left to perish or are thrown off
the dock for want of buyers at one cent. 3
lb. Apples and grapes arc also super
abundant, and to be had at very low
prices. There is a good demand for fall
wool : holders ask lac ; buyers oiler 12c.
The Oregon Iron shipped by the Montana
was well received by the foundries at San
Francisco. The evieic says :
One can hardly over estimate the value
of this enterprise to the manufacturing in
terests of this coast. Tho capacity of the
works, and the quantity of the ore. enable
the manufacturers to supply nearly ail the
raw iron required fur our present uses.
