The Seattle & Walla Walla road
will be built as soon as it is possible.
After crossing the Cascades it will
pass down the Yakima valley to the
Columbia River at a point in the
neighborhood of Umatilla. Three
surveys have been made, and this
one is thought to be the best. It is
owned by the Oregon Improvement
Co., and not by the 0. R. & N. Co.,
as many suppose; but will connect
with the Litter, at or near Umatilla.
It is expected that the O. R. & N.
Co. will connect with the road that

A Conious Fact. Bands of iriiisid
are forbidden to play on most of the
large bridges of the world. A con
stant succession of sound waves,
especially such as come from the
playing of a band, will excite the
wires to tibration. At nrdt? the
vibrations are verf slight, but they
will increase as the sound waves con
tinue to come. The principal rea
son why bands ate floi allowed to
play when crossingcertain Abridges,
the suspension bridge at Niagara, for
instance, is that if followed by pro
cessions of any kind they will keep
step wttk the music, and this regular
step would cause the wires to vi
brate. At suspension bridges mili
tary companies are not allowed to
march across in regular step, but
lrek ranks. The regulur trotting
gait o: a large dog across a suspension
bridge is more dangerous to the
bridge than a heavily loaded wagon
drawn by a team of large horses.
Affairs ate still in a yery unsettled
state in Ireland, on account of tho
rent difticulties. The eutire atten
tion of the British government
seems, at xresenk, to be centered on
the harvesting of Farmer Boycott's
crops. It has been necessary fof
him to call in the aid of the British
army to protect him from punish
ment at the hands of the tenants
whom he had turned out of house
and home. The number of the mil
iary makes further interference im
posiible, but he has announced hi
intention of leaving Ireland, whicli
indicates his fear of future retribu
tion. Oh, unhappy Erin! Wo
would to God that something' couhL
be done to relieve the distress of
your suffering people I
New York, December 8. Ord is
retired, being over 62 years of age
and ordered to Washington. The
retirement of McDowell is1 fully de
cided upon. Howard may possibly
be appointed Asajor General and as
signed to the command of Wesf
Point. Schofield, at Ms own re
quest, will be granted one year's
leave oj absence. Gen. Miles will
probably be ordered to San Francis
co to relieve McDowell.
The Same Olu Story. An Oxford
graduate was showing his sister ovej
his rooms in college, when some one
knocked at the door. Supposing:
that it was one 'of his friends and
not wishing to be chaffed, he hid her
behind the curtains, and admitted
an elderlyentleman, who apolo
gized profusely for his intrusion,
and excused himself by saying thafr
it was many years since he had been
at Oxford, and he could not leave
without paying a visit to his dear old
college, and the rooms he had occu--piad
as a student.
fAh!' cried the old gentleman,,
looking around, 'the same old sofa!'
yes, the same old carpet everything"
Presently he stepped toward the
ctrtains and remarked, fAh! and the
same old curtains' Lookingaround
he beheld the young lady, and turn--ing
around, he said, 'Ah! you young
dog! and the same old game.'
'But hastily replied the uner--graduate,
'that young lady is m
