men who are by experience, compe
tent to decide as to tlie suflicicucv of

them ever examined similar works, or
can now tell the names of lialf tlie
parts or appliances of tlie Locks. Tills
Commission tcexamtae and accept the
work is a very .important one, and
should have been composed of the best
engineers of the State. A man may
lie a very sensible man. successful far
mer, highly respectable gentleman
and a good tiddler or lawyer, and yet
be entirely unqualified to judge of
- siu-h great prices of engineering as
Locks and Canals. The appointment
of these Commissioners certainly looks
more like tritling with the Interests of
tlie State, titan anything else.
TIIK MODOC PFAt'K.
The Modoc Indians do not seem to
be in any immediate danger of being
annihilateil, or as Roaring Ralph Stack-
polo would put it, "teetotally chawed
np ami explunctitled." Tlie military
authorities are still busy with '"notes of
preparation,"' but nothing more
Tlierw has been no fighting except
wlieu tlie Indians to relieve tlie tedium
of inaction, come out of their fastnesses
and fire upon tlie soldiers or a Com
missary train. Within tlie last few
days, we have Iieard some silly twaddle
about starving tlie Indians out as
thaugh the Indians, having tlie free
range, of the wltole country could
not provide for themelve as
well ns tliey liavo lieretofore done It!

MM 41. AURU I LTI nAIi MMIETIKS.
We liave noted with pleasure, the
movements in several parts of this
State to form local agricultural socie
ties. Tlie growing sentiment both in
this and foreign countries seems to be
growing In favor of these local socie
ties as against the more cumbersome,
more pretentious, and less useful
mammoth exhibitions, whose field is
a whole State or half a dozen States.
These latter are too often run by rings
tor one purpose or another, and for
advancement of the interest of some
chosen clique. The people from whom
support must come are learning that
they best subserve their own interests
by encouraging the neighborhood and
district gatherings. Let. them do
what they can to build tip these, and
there will lie little occasion for any
lust now. tlie subject ot lire-proof
buildings is .one of almost universal
interest and very genera! discussion.
I lisou-sing the subject, the London)
Engineer, a good authority, s-iys ;
"Tlw only way f ronstntet a build
ing which shall bis as nearly tiro-proof
as possible js to reject iron, both cat
aud wrought, as a constructive: ma
terial, except for doors, and to revert
to the u-e of .brick floors, supported
,y jjroineil :i relies on brick pillars.
r.nt siu-ii hiuliluii's are at once enor-
lihxi-ly exx'nsive. and to the last de-
;nv unhandy."' It also observes tliat
although it is easy to make a building
lire-proof, it is usually impracticable
to have its ordinary content fire
proof, and this is the reason why so
called lire-proof mills and stores are so
often burned down.

I From tlie oregouian, Iec. 30.
At present there are about twenty
miners engaged at John Day Rapids
on tlie Upper Columbia river, in blast
ing and grappling for tlie rock. Float
ing ice compelled a temporary suspen
sion of operations at Umatilla Rapids
and Devil's Rend. Unless tlie weatlier
becomes much colder, and the ice
greatly augments, work can continue
at John Day Rapids, until tl comple
tion of tlie contract. Immediately
following this, operations will be com

Gen. E. L. Appleirate, Commission
er of Immigration, accompanied by
Jacob Stitzel of Portland, started Sun
day, Dec. 22d, overland to California,
en route to tlie Eastern States. The
general will devote himself while at
the East to the principal object of his
mission the dissemination of infor
mation concerning Oregon. It must
stand greatly to his credit tliat he
undertakes the business at bis own
expense, the Legislature, liavlng in a
spirit of petty trilling refused to provide
him compensation, after giving him
The Chicago Times, which supjiort-
ed O'Conor in the presidential cam
paign, in a recent issue says : "The
Democratic party organization is a
dead body which nothing can bring
back to seccesstul life. The resurrec
tion of genuine Democratic principles
must occur 'under entirely new aus
pices, of which the played-out race of
political jugglers shall not be not the
engineers, or it is a resurrection that
this genora ion will not witness."
The occurrence of the late fire in
Portland, has revived the discussion
of tlie question of water supply, and
the proposition to iuvest in tlie Holly
system seems to he gaining friends.
The Postmaster General estimates
tliat 112,000,000 will purchase all the
existing lines of telegaph in the
United States. Outsiders think $20,-
000.000 will be required.
Tlie bonded debt ot Idaho Territory
is 77.'2.V, and her floating debt is

North Carolina apjiears to lie in
danger of speedily having no State
Government, because ol the reluctance
of the Democratic Legislature to for
mally declare tlie result of tlie August
election, when, as is well known, Re
publican State officers were cliosen.
The excuse, is made that the returns
of certain counties have not been made
in accordance with law, and it so hap
pens tliat the returning officials of
tliese -counties are tnvariaDiy Demo
crat". Partisan feeling In the Soutli
eni States is allowed a latitude un
known elsewliere, but it I hardly pos
sible that it will be permitted to per
petrate such an outrage as seems to
be intended in this case. There i no
pretense made tliat the Ke publican
State ticket was not elected by a ma
jority of the people, and tlie consum
mation of what we fear Is the present
purpose of tlie legislature will be a
defiance of the popular will as un
paralleled as ft will be inexcusable.
WE SHALL MEET AO AO.
The following is said to be one
of the most brilliant articles written by
the lamented Geo. D. Prentice :
The fiat of nature is Inexorable.
There is no appeal for relief from the
great law which dooms us to dust. We
flourish and fade as the leaves of tlie
forest, and the flours that bloom and
wither in a day hare no frailer hold ,
upon life than the mightiest monarch
tliat ever shook tno earth ith his
footsteps. Generations ot nteu will
appear and disappear as the footsteps
on the shore. Men seldom think of
the great event of death until the'
shadows falls across tlieir own path
way, hiding from their eyes the face9
offered ones, whose living smile was
the sunlight of tlieir existence. Death
is tlie antagonist of life, and the cold
thought of .the tomb Is the skeleton
ot all leasts. Wedonot want to go
through the dark .valley, although its
dark passage may lead to paradise;
we do not want to lie down ,Ui X.lie
damp grave, even with princes as bed-;
fellows. the beautiful drama of
"lone, iie hope of immortality utter-,
ed by tlie deaAh devoted Greek, finds
deep response t eery .thoughtful
soul. When aljout te j-ield.h young
existence as a aacrinee to rate his
Clautauthn askedft.they should meet
agaitu wldch he replied: ,"I have
asked (that dreadful question .pf the;
hills that look jeternal pf the .clear;
stream tbat fqrwsr of the stars
among whose fields qf jwro ,ny rais
ed apirit has walked In glery.- 411 ar&
dumb ; but as I gaze Aipoji thy lying
race, I feel tliat there U something in
the love tliat mantfet through Its
beauty that cannot wholly poriu. We
shall meet again, Clamaiitlia."

of the lth Inst. The articles are
worthy the attention of all who are in
terested in the future weltare of Sa
lem. That we need maniifactorieaud
concert of action i beyond a doubt,
ami tlioso who undertake worthy en
terprises sliould receive tlie undivided
support of all well wishers to the
prosperity of not only our cltv, but
tlie entire State of Oregon, j have
faith in tlie good intentions of Orego
niaug, that wlteu tlie Hubbard or any
other machine U manufactured here
tliey will have tlie preference over
Kastern manufactured machines at
tlie same price. First try the people,
before passing judgment, lu regard
to home manufactories, purchase of
goods, etc,, I ask "Citizen," have yon
practiced what you preach, or Is
it easier to preach than to prac
tice ? Some ot our citizens wlien
at Portland purchased supplies
amounting to several hundred dollars
and at higher rites than the same ar
ticles could have been purchased at
home, thus depriving our merchants
of tlieir just dues. And yet many
such parties will cry relorm. Now a
lew words in regard to the article of
the isth Inst. "Citizen" says that
not a brick building pays six per cent,
per annum clear profits on its first
cast. If " Citizen" had said twelve
per cent. I think it would have been
nearer tlie mark for the majority ot
brick buildings not including the ho
tels (as a general thing hotels do not
pay in any city in comparison to store
rooms.) In regard to the "spirit of
?4'J and '54' to get rich rapidly, In
cluding business men, clerks, wood
sawers, etc., 1 cannot agree with " Cit
izen' tliat high prices are paid for
lalior of all kinds, including clerk hire,
wood sawing, etc. In no place on this
coast are there as small wages paid, or
goods sold at less profit tlmn in Oregon.
And In regard to boots. I have seen
boots tliat were made liere at eight
dollar, aud good boots at tliat. I say
shame on the. man tliat wislies to grind
tlie face ot the laboring poor. Lai?,
ihiht. Ot what I speak I know,

lact tliat iik t of the mines worked in
Oregon are under tltc control, and, iu

mining facilities of this SfcutJ as can lie
found anywhere, lie is en route to
California to organize a stock coinp&uv
for the purpose of making further de
velopments of Summit Mine, near
Bilker City. He informs us that the
well known Virtue Mines are turning
out much better tlian was ever expect
ed of them.
Superintendent I). II. Jackson is
now working about 40 men, and they
are able to take out enough rock for a
20-stamp mill. The mine is owned by
a California firm and is paying hand
some dividends. It is tlie intention of
the company to erect a 23-stamp mill
at tlie ledge, and thereby save an ex
pense now incurred in hauling tlie ore
a distance of seven miles, to I'.aUer
City, tofore it can be worked. The
cost of tawling Is about $2 M a ton.
