There's a story sweet and olden, By tradition handed down ; For each sinner led to Jesus, There's a star set iu our crown, And methinks I see her standing, Starry-crowned at His right hand For her light was spent in winning Souls to seek the " Happy land." Here her cross was meekly taken, Kasy seemed the Savior's yoke, Xow the silver cord is loosened, And the golden bowf is broke ; Oh ! we will not be so faithless, As to mourn her in the tomb, When each angel voice is singing; Sister spirit, welcome home 1 Canex ah, May 2Sth 1868. m. l. PACTS TO CIRCULATE. We extract from a bulky roll of clippings, accumulated on our table from our exchanges of the past two mouths, the following facts, regarding the industry of the Pacific States, which ought to meet with a ready circulation: If youn fellows in the Eastern States and foreign countries, with broad shoulders aud bushy whiskers, tire of clerking and long for a freer and better, though rougher life, with a certainty, of health being granted, that competence will follow industry, sobriety and judgment, Jet them come here. Five years manual labor on this coast at present rates of wages, will give a man a good house and a good farm. The soil and climate will then guarantee him all the necessaries and luxuries of life, if he will do work enough to keep his digestive organs in good order. In Europe, mere labor rarely rais es a man above sordid penury, and seldom above the rUk of want com ing on him sooner or later. Here la bor rightly used is a certain road to comfort and decent competence, and gives as many chances of moderate wealth as any commercial or profes sional pursuit. A man who owns a well selected farm of 160 acres in this country, whether he strives to cultivate it him self, or whether he hires out his own labor for two or three years longer, has a far preferable life before him to that of an ordinary clerk in New York with $1,500 currency, or of a junior iD a London bank. The man who is not above begin ning life on this coast by twelve months work with pick and shovel on the railroad, will find that without any of those lucky windfalls of sue cess which so often present themselves in new countries, and are almost al ways the reward of remarkable skill, energy and industry, he will have at the end of the year more than enough money to pay for a quarter section of land. We do not exaggerate when we say that the public and private schools of San Francisco alone turn out enough young clerks to fill the va cancies arising every year on the whole coast, and these youngsters, beyond their mere school knowledge, have an amount of local information which makes them preferable to strangers. More than all, the claims of our own youths lor employment always are and will be considered, in selecting one from a number of ap plicants for any position. Many young men who can read well, write tolerably, and work a simple sum in arithmetic correctly, hare acquired a habit of looking down upon manual labor. To them it ap pears beneath their dignity to take np a pick or shovel and earn a plain living. To wear black clothes and stand nine or ten hours a day behind a desk for 100 a month is the height of their ambition. It would be all very well if there were enough books wanting keepers, and vacant desks waiting for young men to come and stand behind them; but there are not and there never will be situations of this class for all who are seeking them. When it was manifest that a strong current of immigration was begin ning to set towards California, cer tain newspapers took the alarm and maintained that none but persons having ready money above present wants, were desirable immigrants. The capital of boue and muscle was not wanted. Now some 3,000 or 4,000 persons are landed in Califor nia every month. The greater part of these expect to get a living by hard work of one kind or another. They will help gather in the coming harvest of 20,000,000 bushels, more or less, of wheat. They will have something to do with producing the $10,000,000 worth of bullion which will figure in the next annual com mercial reports. Labor is transmu ted into gold by a shorter process here than anywhere else. If all the working force of the State should cease active operations for a month, we might set a new view of the rela tions of labor to capital. By a very simple process nearly every capable person who wants work, is supplied. Uvery such person enriches the State even though he bm.'irs no ready OREGON CITY, ORJEGOIY, money with him. There is one other fact not to be lost sight of. A large number of these immigrants not only bring money with them, but they are skilled in some handicraft. They will create work. Your skillful arti zan don't beg as a general rule, nor subsist long on charity sonp. The twelve hundred mechanics who are reported to be coming from an East ern city, will make work as well as seek it. They will create homes for themselves and for other people. If 100,000 homes are created by tre immigrants during the next five year, the State will have gained vastly in the kind of wealth she h3s loag sought. Farm laborers can earn from $30 to $40 per month the latter sum is paid to good hands during harvest time. A young man hires out for a year, say at $35 per month. This includes board. A year's wages amount to $420, out of whicli must come clothing, costing probably SI 00. By the strictest economy it is pos sible for a farm laborer to lay op 300 a year. This, put into a sav" ings bank, will earn about $30. At the close of the second year, with good health, he would have $G30 in gold a small sum to be sure. But what can be done with this sum in buying a farm just now ? In these valleys there are still large tracts of land, which can be purchased of the Government at $1 25 an acre in greenbacks, or at about 90 cents in gold. A farm of 320 acres, inclu. diug fees at the Lind Office, would cost about $30 in gold. There would then be 333 for seed, plow and a span of horses. Much of this land w ill yield 30 bushels of wheat to the acre, and perhaps 20 bushels would be an average crop. One good crop puts the young farmer on his legs. This view of the case is of course the best ; and just such oppor tunities may not last, but we as sume that it will be possible for years to come to buy a farm of 160 acres with the avails of three years of un- skilled labor, nud buy the seed for the first yoar's crop. There aro yet 50,000,000 acres of land in this State adapted to agriculture which have never been broken by the plow. The greater part of this land will pro duce wheat, or other crops nearly as valuable. The few thousand immi grants who are coming this year and j next, can occupy only a small part of the land- There is room enough for all this immigration if it were in creased ten fold that is to say for all honest workers. It is impossible to s.ft out all worthless men, or to prevent some bad elements from coming to the country. But rascali ty pays poorly here, and there fs no encouragement for more than the av erage amount of it. As a general rule, the men who want homes and farms ar e not ambitions to .figure in the records of the Police Court. We want more small farms opened up ; and a greater number of comfortable homes. Surely the men who aspire to accomplish these things are not an undesirable element of population. The life of modern business is publicity; and the facilities furnished by posters, cards, circulars, stamped envelopes, printed letter-headings, pamphlets and price lists, to those who wish to solicit custom, have hith erto been too much neclected. An increasing disposition to use printers' ink in these shapes, however, is now manifested by many sagacious men, and it especially characterizes the operations of enterprising and pros perous firms and communities. The impressions made by the usual forms of advertising can be greatly strength ened by other appliances of" the art preservative." Your business can be stated fully, as well as in a thou sand varied, attractive and striking topographical shapes. You can be certain of arresting the attention of the persons whom you specially wish to reach by a judicious distribution of appropriate circulars or price lists; and you can constantly keep your business before the entire public, at a comparatively small expense, by a systematic display of placards or pos ters at promiuent places. - -- The distinguished honor, says the Macon Journal, is reserved to the Grand Lodge of Georgia of having in its possession the ancient Bible used by Burns in his Lodge, and which can be seen at every meeting of Macon Lodge, Constantine Chapter, or the Grand Lodge.

A correspondent of the Gazette writes a very interesting letter o truthful paragraphs, from Yaquina bay, from which we quote ; I nociced sometime- siDce a cor respondence between the lion. Sen ator Corbett and the U: S. Surveys ing department, in regard to survey ing 1 aquina bay. 1 was pleased to see that Oregon had at , last got a man who would look to her interests in such matters, and I hope he will continue to do so until at least a portion of her rights and wants in this respect are obtained. But the matter has brought to my mind another subject in this connec tion, jn which the public generally and mariners in particular are inter ested, and upon w hich with your per mission I will make a few remarks: It is Light Houses. Now do you know Mr. Editor, how many light houses there are on all the Coast of Oregon ? I will count them. There is just one, Cape Arago, and that one has only been in operation a few month. Now to any one familiar with such matters I need not try to explain their importance and useful ness. It has been said by some jur ist that in our large cities one street lamp is equal to five or six Police men in the protection of life and prop crty. I will leave the public then'to make their own estimates, from this as to the value of one light house in the protection it affords to life and property. Why is it that so many vessels every winter are reported lost and missing on this coast ? Why is it that so many wrecks and frag ments dot the shores cf Oregon ? One reason is that the coast is not well known, it has never been half surveyed, the hasty reconnoisance made in 1854, by Lieutenant Alden and Assistant Davidson reflects great credit on them for the amount of work done in the time and with tho means at their hands; but they were not allowed half the time or means necessary to do the work that ought to have been done, therefore but little is known about the coast of Oregon, except by those living im mediately along its line. As I said before Oregon has jlst one light house. California has ten and two more about to be built, St. lieys and Cape Mendocina. To be sure Cali fornia has a much more extended sea coastj but then it is not considered so dangerous, and the climate is milder in winter than on the coast of Ore gon. Oregon has eight or ten har bors of sufficient capacity to admit ordinary coaster?; the principal ones are Columbia ltiver, Tillamook, Nat ahais called Natarts, Yaqnina, Ump qua, Coos Bay, Coquille-, Port Or ford, Rogue lliver and Chetko. And there is not one lighthouse in Oregon at the entrance of any one of these harbors, as Cape Disappointment is in W. T., and cape Arago light is several miles from Coos Bay, its nearest harbor. There used to be one at the Umpqua, but it was wash? ed down several years ago and has never been rebuilt. Now there are a great many small vessels running on this coast, and although but small, they often carry as valuable lives as larger vessels, they are frequently caught in the terrible gales of winter and compelled to ride it out at sea or go to the bottom, with all on board, which is often the case and no one re turn to tell the sad tale of their fate. Many such are doubtless lost, when, if they had only known it, there was a good safe harbor within a few hours run of them. But the mariner would sooner trust to the strength and seaworthiness of his vessel than to risk the attempt of making a har bor of which he has but little or no knowledge, and where there is no light house, no .buoys, not even a beacon to mark the entrance. If he turns to his coast chart for informa tion he is no better off, for do you know that one of the best, if not the best small harbor on this coast is not on the chart. No such place as Yaquina bay was known to exist by the surveying party that surveyed the coast and yet they passed right by it. And now if a surveying par ty, in good weather, in the summer season, could pass a:good harbor without seeing it, is it strangethat the perplexed and troubled mariner should prefer to take his chances at sea rather than try to find it amid the storms and fogs and rough seas Of winter. About three years ago your cor pondent sailed from San Francisco in a schooner capable of carrying about two huodred tons. A galo of wind commenced before .we were fairly out of sight of the harbor, and in just three days 1 Was anchored safely in Yaquina Bay. Some ves sels sailed for other places on the coast about the same time and were out thirty days and then got back to San Fraucisco, in distress and with out cargoes, and others never return edi Perhaps a score of vessels at least could have made Yaquina har bor at that time and got shelter from the storm, had they known such a place existed. 1 may mention here that 1 came in at that time in a gale of wind undef close reefed sails, had not less than twenty feet of water on the Uar, and no breakers. But I am doubtless making this article too long for your columns, so I will come directly to the point and cut it short; What Oregon Wants at present is more light let there be one at Ya quina Bay and as many more as we ou get. Of one thing, I s jppese you 6, 1868. are aware, that a light is not 6imply useful to its particular locality alone. It is of great use to all vessels going up or down the coast. To a vessel bound to Columbia river a light at Yaquina Bay would often be of great service, as vessels and steamers are frequently beset with fogs and drifted by currents and gales from course. And it is only the mariner that can truly appreciate how good it is to see a light under such circumstances, and be enabled to ascertain the position of his vessel. I have written more than 1 intended to at this time, but I feel that it U an important subject, and one of great interest to the pub lic. And I consider this the proper time to bring the matter before the people, as there is an election ap proaching, and a member of congress is to be chosen, and which ever one may be the successful man t hope he will understand and look out for the interests of Oregon. And among which I trust he will not Consider this the least. Yes; Oregon want3 more light j She is being raised in good form now, since the pets of this pink of Democ racy was hoisted from power. When Democrats controlled Oregon, the aid asked from Government was for the purpose of building military roads to Astoria, and like enterprises, for which we have nothing whatever to show, to-day. . A plucky fellow had a son, who was a student at one of our New England colleges, and one day -'he thought he would visit the institution. He did so, spent the day there, and was invited to stop to tea. He ac cepted the invitaion, and upon re ceiving his ration of the celestial fluid, reached out and seized a bowl of what he supposed to be sugar, but which was in reality salt. With this con diment he proceeded to liberally sea son his te3. Presently, he perceived from the sly glances toward him, and by the general whispering and sup pressed ' sn:ckering," that. something was wrong, aud he rightly conjectur ed it was some act of his; and when, upon his tasting his tea, the " snicker" expanded into a broad 11 horse laugh," he hadn't much doubt as to what the matter was. As I hare before stated, the old gent didn't like to be laughed at, especially by a parcel of schoolboys, so, with Spartan resolu. tion, he worried down the abomina ble compound, wishing, no doubt, that those boys could be made to drink a quart each before going to prayers in the morning. Giving a final gulp, and putting on a face that was intended to make everybody think that he liked his dose of salts. he called for another cup, and upon receiving it,said to the head-snickerer: " Young man, will you be kind enough to pass that bowl of salt?" The salt was passed, and amid the most breathless silence, he dipped a couple of spoonsfull into his tea, stirred it up, and tasted it with a look of apparent satisfaction. " Why, Mr. ," said the young man opposite him, do you drink salt in your tea?" " Always!" answered the plucky old man, with great emphasis, and in his pleasautest manner. Count D'Artois wore very tight leather breeches. He had ordered his tailor to attend on him one morn ing, when his grand-daughter, who resided with him, had also ordered her shoemaker to wait npon her. The young lady was seated in the breakfast-room when the maker of leather breeches was shovn in , and, as she did not happen to know one handi craftsman from another, she at once intimated that she wished him to measure her for a pair of leathers' for, as she remarked, the wet weather was coming on and she felt cold in "cloth." The modest tailor could hardly believe his ears. " Measurc you, Miss?" he said, with hesitation. " Y"es, if you please," said the young lady, who Was remarkable for her gravity of deportment, and t have only to beg you will give me plenty of room; for I am a great walker, and and I do not like anything that con strains me.1' " But, Miss," exclaim ed the poor fellow, in great perplcxU ty, I never in my life measured a ladyj and 1 i" And then he paused. u Are you not a lady's shoemaker?" was the query, calmly put to him. " By no tneansj Miss,' said hej " I am a leathern breeches makerj and" 1 hate come to take the measure, not of youj but of M. Gilbert." The young lady became perplexed tooj but she recovered her self-possession after a good common-sense laugh and sent the maker of breeches to her grandpa. .- ; - An exchange says that a girl in Topham, Me., died from her blood turning to sugar. Our devil says this must be a mistake, for he knows a gir! who, if sweetness is fatal to mor tality, li couldn't live a minute." BEAUTY ASTRIDE; The Herald of Health comes but decidedly for the divided seat beauty astride! A female medical correspondent thus describes her forked experiences; " I was in the country attending some patients, when I received the Dcember number of the Herald of Health. I was much delighted witu the article by Miss Rogers, M. D., on the equestrian movements of the Western ladies. A young lady (who is my patient) as well as myself resolved, at once, that that style of riding was very gracd, and that we would put it into practice. So she proposed that I equip myself in her brothers attire, and take a ride that day. I had been used to riding on horseback all my life; and love it to excessj and was too glad to avail myself of the dp' portfinity; I was soon equipped in gentleman's attire and fndunted on & spirited horse, and on my way io ihe village of G. The distance is ted and a half miles, and w;e rriade the trip in one hour and three-quarters, I often leaving my (gentleman) gal lant in the rear. Notwithstanding 1 had so much enjoyed riding tn the old style, 1 do confess thai I never, before this trip, knew what a free and easy ride was. It is as much inlprove ment on riding sideways and in skirts as a threshing machine is on a flail. About the matter of tight lacing, one bf our spirited cotcmporaries talks as follows. Hear him; r Girls-, you who go 'round wiih your corsets jerked up to the last notch, and your waists squeezed up s"d tight that yoli can't draw a good long breath, put this in your pipes and smoke it. We are not a girl, but wo know squeezing is a nice thing, yet if squeezing you must have, we pray you get it in some other manner than by tight lacing. Wc know there are other ways of getting squeezed, and so do you. The annexed item we find in the Chicago Republican, and we pub lish it for the benefit of the young ladies in this city if there are any who pride themselves on their nice little waists, when, if their Corset strings should suddenly break, they would spread about a feet. Read it. The sudden death of a respectable young lady in the streets of New York from " apoplexy of the lungs, superinduced by tight lacingj" fs an nounced. Suppose sortie villain Irad choked this lady to death, what a brute he Would have been prononms ed! Suppose sOmebtJdy had smoth1 ered, it would have been terrible! Suppose this lady had drowned her self, or taken prussic acid, or done anything to destroy herself except what she did do-, it would have . been horrible. Blessed with a full habit, this foolish woman and there are thousands like her thought she was " improving her figure" by squeezing herself to death. So she died! May all such silly women die as young and suddenly, before they can bear children to inherit the effects of such folly. The following is a description of Miss Menken's brougham, about which there has been a law-suit in England. It had handsome curtains lamps chased and mounted With horses rampant; the panels were bor dered, and the wheels picked out with gold foliage"; there Were bands with white and gliding round the felloes of the wheels; the door-handles were richly chased, and on the panels were placed Miss Menken's monogram ahd crest, the latter a horse rampant. There were cigar pockets. Around the roof were handsome chased orna ments and foliage, and a rampant horse at each corner. The nails to the wheels were silver platedj and everything else corresponded.
