T!ie Portland papers of the 13th
brought the welcome news that the
ice was out of the Columbia from be
low the Willamette, where, since the
first of January, it has remaiued an
obstruction to navigation.
The Ranger Capt. Fisher, reached
Portland at half past eight o'clock on
Wednesday cveninjr, with the GVi
flamme's passengers from Astoria.
Iler arrival created a great sensation
in the metropolis.
The Occident is in the river, where
she has btrii (or 20 days. The Almy,

An Indian named Gebuck was

death by the pxees.-dve use of the
commonest kind ofrotgutwhisly. On
the 28th of January, at Chinook, a
man named Preble was killed 'by

Belpassi. This is an enterprising
Pule place, situated in the midst of
a" extensive agricultural district on
French Prairie. It does not aspire to
commercial or manufacturing distinc
tion, yet it is gradually improving in
those elements which tend to develop
a thriving country village. It has a
most excellent school, which, during
the present winter is under the care
of Prof. Winton, an able and accom.
plished teacher, who has succeeded in
bringing the school up to a high state
of advancement, and most excellent
discipline. This school presents no
ciaiui to xvcauennc Honors, j ei as a
common district school it is a model
in its way. A Union Club was or
ganized Feb. 1st, at which time
speeches were made by several gen
tlemen, and a committee wasar noiut
ed to draft a Constitution and By
Laws. The Club will meet weekly,
and it is expected that the patriotic
ladies of Celpassi will contribute to
the interest of its meetings. The la
dies here, as elsewhere, are all for
tlie Union. A democratic lady at
Belpassi, would be a phenomenon.
The Effects of the Fre-;ze. It
is feared that winter wheat has been
seriously injured by the freeze, par
ticularly in those places where there
was not enough snow to protect it.
Feed is becoming scarce amonjr farm
ers, and it is feared that stock will
suffer in consequence. It will be a
good lesson for those who allowed
tons of straw to be wasted, which, if
j properly saved, would save their stock
in a " cold snap " A large amount
of fruit has been frozen, and potatoes
have suffered, from the want of prop
er care in putting up in the fall. It
is hoped that our people have learned
a lesson from the present winter,
which will not be unheeded hereafter;
if not, we may expect every few years
a repetition of the scenes of the pres
ent v inter.

clare Gen. Ulysses S. Grant their choice
for next President of the United States.
His bravery, his moderation, his honesty
and love of country, and his wisdom in
war and peace, commend him as the right
man to place in this the most exalted and
repsonsible station of the earth.
Resolved. That we favor the admission
of Senators and Representatives in Con
gress from the States where rebellion has
lately raged, as soon as loyal governments
are instituted by their people under the
laws of the United States.
Resoh-f-d. That the so called Democratic
party, is led and controlled by men who
sympathized with the rebellion; that it
opposed the war for the preservation of
the Union, and thus extended the war
and increased the debt of the United
States, and the taxes of the people. A
party that was unfaithful to the Govern
ment in time of war is not fit to control it
in time of peace.
Resolved, That all citizens of Clackamas
county who believe that Gen. Grant, and
the men in the party who saved the
Union, are better qualified to govern ami
control it than those who did all in their
power to embarrass the Government
when it was in deadly peril, are invited to
sign our roll, and become members of our
