are requested to fill the same by ap

in New York, for this coast, are very

the demand for room for grain and

The Boise Statesman gives some
account of the operations of mining
companies in Idaho. The whole of

gross swindling machines. As to
their attempts at mining, they have
never made any that was worthy of

the ledges are good, and says that it
is not the fault of the mines that the
companies are ruined, but of the
worthless agents sent to do the work.

When I merely sought to con
vince certain farmers of this valley
that they were ia the way of w asting
some of . their hare- afned .'a ing?,
the press generally persisted in rep
resenting that I endeavored to dis
courage railroad enterprise of any
character whatever in Oregon.' The
tenor of the articles relating to rail ;
roads which have appeared in , the
Portland papers this wetk has
prompted me to the desire of putting
myself squarely right on the record.
These newspapers in suggesting the
construction of a Willamette Valley
Road with Eastern capital, and the
connection of Oregon and Washing
ton with the Union Pacific Railroad
by the passes of the Columbia River
and its tributaries, have struck the
key note of the song that will ye1
sing this region into a state of growth
and permanent prosperity unparallel
ed in the history of our country ex
cepting always the city of San Fran
cisco. I have made myself by per
sonal observation very familiar with
the progress,ind prospective ul.J ty of
the Central Pacific Railroad. 1 came
from the present eastern terminus of
that road, here, fully convinced that
as a portion of a trans continental
road, fulfilling the expectations of the
people at large who have contributed
so liberally to its support it was a
failure. That as surely as water in

Railroad Accident. A fearful
accident occurred on the Cleveland

The express train was behind time,

From some cause unknown the two
rear cars were thrown trora the track

ritokv. It appears from accounts re
ceived from "abroad that tho rains
have been very disastrous upon some
of ouriWashington Territory neigh
bora. Monticello, which stood upon
,the, bank of the Cowlitz river, has
been almost entirely swept away and,
its people forced to take shelter upon
higher ground, and ' it is fortunatPl
that no lives were lost." It is stated
that the water was the highest there
ever known lor twenty years. Free-
port, which is about two mile3 above
Monticello, appears to have been
more fortunate, but did not entirely
escape. Lewis river, arose to an un
precedented height,' and has cut a
new channel some ten miles' belt ir
the present one, and it is thought the
channel may be permanently changed.
From all accounts the rains ran t
have been much heavier over in
Washington than here.
Improved Turbine Water-Wheel.
Mr. J. C Trullinger, of Oswego,
has received notice that npon his ap
plication, a patent has been ordered
to issue for his ' Improved Turbine
Water-wheel," which, it is said by
competent engineers, will eclipse
all the wheels now in use, for power
and economy. A small one is now
in use at Oswego, from the operation
of which, this judgment is made np.
We are informed that Mr. Trullinger
has concluded a contract with the
Willamette Iron Works to go to con
siderable extent into the manufacture
of the wheels. We have no precise
information as to the probable co.-t
of these wheels as compared with
other favorite patents ; but from rep
resentations, we are led to bilieve
that they will be much less expensive.
One of those strange phenomena
which are observed occasionally in
nature, says the Stockton Indrpend
ent, was noticed Thursday night
aboard tbe Julia. In coming up the
Bay, in deep and apparently still
water, the vessel commenced rocking
to and fro, bringing her gunwale
nearly under the surface. So violent
and so undulating was the motion
for a minute or so, that passengers
could hardly keep on their feet. The
T ularc, a short distance astern, ob
served the motion of the Julia, and
the consternation on board, but ex
perienced nothing unusual herself.
The occurrence is of so extraordinary
nature, and so unaccountable, thu'
unless some plausible explanation
could be given, one might almost
doubt the evidence of the senses o!
those who violate strange freak o!

pent a deoizn of the inland Califor
nia waters, or was this a subterranean
Silveuton. This thriving village
in Marion county is keeping pace
with more preteutious places in the
matter of public spirit. It claims
one of the best schools in the State,
numbering over one hundred j upih
under the charge of Prof. Hunt. 'I he
school building cost about 5,000 dol
lars. The hotel is kept by Mr. Phil
lip Bowers, and is a re it nnd com
fortable place. The merchants are

the steamer Enterprise ran aground
a few miles below Eugene Cit, ''dur

and dry by the receding flood. It is
thought doubtful if she wili b3 able to

Moi.alla Bridge. We learn that
the apron at the sonth end of the
Molalla bridge was washed away dur

that the road is in a very bad condi

of the supervisor to this fact.

The following from the New York Insur.
ance Monitor, we publish with pleasure. It
is a true statement as to the rise and progress t
of a most deserving Life Insurance Company!)
saj s the .san l rancisco Spirit vj , the 1 imes.'
John Landers, a most estimable young gen
tleman, is the General Agent of the company
on this coast. He is now on a visit to Ore
gon. Through his careful attention to busi--S9,
perfect reliability and good manage
ment, the prospect of this branch of tbe
.Manhattan has been more than equal in pro
portion to- that elsewhere. The officers of
the Manhattan were fortunate in their se
lection of Mr. Landers as their Agent, for
there is no man more respected and esteem
ed than he :
The general Interest excited by the surpri
sing progress of thi& institution, lias recent
ly been greatly increased, and impoitant and
numerous as hare been the successes achiev
cd in this metropolis, it is now confidently
believed that none have proven more useful,
complete, and solid, than that one by the
Manhattan Life Irsiirunce company. This
beneficent organization is indeed an honor
to Few York, and our citizens have substan
tial reasons to be proud of it. Its career,
characterized by the mo.-1 judicious, enlight
ed, and economical ' management, has been
triumphant throughout, and the general fa
vor it has secured is the fruit, not of promis
es and pretension, but of work actually,
carefully and thoroughly performed.
All persons concerned in Life Insurance
have watched its progress with jreat inter
est. Last year it actually increased its pro
portions about one-third, and augmented its
assets by neatly a million dollars. On the
first of June last it had issued in total 20,211
policies, ar.d of these, had 11, 204 in force,
and had insured to the amount of 5S,01f,723
.Such figures cs these, which arc caicuz the
best signs of lie times, prove that the old
Manhattan Life si ill occupies the foremost
position, and when it is added that on the
first ot July, IbOi, it exlnbitej a gam for t lie j
last six months in number of policies in force
of 2,1 S7, an increase in assets of 2,.'4-, of
risks of $8,20,793, an advance beyond the
receipts of the first six months of ls6t that
exceeds them by !S2,'.50 that its reserved
accumulations now amount to about Four
Millions that it receives an annual income
of about Two Millions, and that its dividend
due to policy holders in 1Si57, sums up Two
Hundred and Forty Thousand dollars, it will
be seen that, as n-spetts actual progression,
substantial prosperity and profitableness to
the insured, it yields to no other Life Com
pany in the United States.
The plan of the Manhattan Life is a close
approximation to peifection. It embraces
all the essential stability of the Stock, and
all the advantage.! of the Mutual systems.
Its stockholders are personally liable in the
event ot the imuairuient of the company's
capital, and its uirectors are not only pecu
niarily interested in its success, but are all
men of extensive experience and acknowl
edged ability. The advantages it pro'I'ers to
policy holders ate unusually Itberul, includ
ing a division of the profits among them,
fair representation, elective power, and eli
gibility to otlice the ten annual payment
life policy, and every rariety of endowment
policy non-forfeitable on each anrcaal pre
mium paid the ordinary life policy, after
the payment of three annual premiums, ex
changeable on surrender for a paid up policy
for the ascertained value of the former the
incontestability of every policy after, five
.ears, on the ground of error or mis-stat :
ment annual" dividends on every policy in
force for four years a cash premium system
which allows a credit equal to the entire pre
mm m paid and many other excellent fea
tures, skilfully adapted to the wants of soci
ety and admirably calculated to render the
burden of insuring exceedingly light and
easy to sustain. They afford extraordinary
facilities to all for insuring a large amount
at the outset, and enable every insurant, by
ineans of indulgent credits, large bonuses,
the largest ever given, and handsome annual
dividends to sustain the policy without loss
or inccaveuier.ee to the liual consummation
of its purposes.
Although the onward course of the Man
hatton Life has been steadily accelerating
till its advance has become rapid beyond
precedent.there is no company more remark
able for the perfect sccuiitv cf its invest
ments, and the Mi'it-tucss of the economy
maintained by its management. In these
respects it serves for a model to all other
corporate societies. The care and discrimi
nation exercised o:i the pat t of its oflicers,
airents, and examiners, are demonstrated by
the :e narkahte exemption from mortality ex
perienced by those to whom it issued policies
last year. It is the practice of the company
by throwing the fullest light of science upon
every question and detail, to attain to the
greatest possible exactitude, and in making
its valuations and dividends, the calculations
are verified, in cases of doubt, by the em
ployment of the best actuarial skill the
country affords. An institution of this kind
is therefore as reliable and stable as the na
The ellicicncy with which it is conducted,
the ur.?xampled Iowness of its ratio of ex

growth and prosperity, reflect more honor

Membership in tbe Manhattan Life is con
stantly multiplying itself, and the company
ilnas its oest advocates among its own policy
nouiers wno nare experienced its own bless
ings. The millions it has paid to thousands
ot widows and orphans and to the insured

more are its most eloquent testimonials to
public favor. The benedictions of the dying
and ot the surviving, many of whom owe to
the fait..ful discharge ot its trusts their
prescut comfoit affluence, position, educa

character, justify all we have said in praise
of the institution, and render it the dutv of

Dr. Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters. The operation of this palatable rem
edy upon ttic stomach, liver and excretory
organs is singularly soothing and conserva
tive. It regulates, recruits, and purifies
them. Dyspepsia in all its forms yields to
its control ana invigorating properties, and
it is recommended to mothers, enfeebled by
the cares and duties of maternity, as the
safest and best remedy they can "probablv
use. In all the crisis of female life it wiil be
found eminently useful, and elderly persons
will derive much more benefit from it than
from ordinary stimulants. Sold by the drug
gists and dealers everywhere.
