We are in receipt, this week, of
a letter from Philadelphia, which

of that place. It is both interest

"French young ludy, 23 years ot
age, a milliner, not wealthy, wishes
to marry. She does not understand
English. Addrc33 Alice Dumonlen
Detroit, Mich." Miss Alice is no
doubt a goad, sensible girl, and well
knows what virtue there is in ad
vertising. Frank McBean, proprictDrof the
Soda Spring station, a favorite sum
mer re ort for the people in Grant
and Harney counties, informs us
that ho has sown that pkee 1G0
acres in rice. He says if that
proves a success, and his monkey
crop in Harney valley yields to
him half what he expect?, the

The G A. 11. Fourth of July cel
ebration in John Day, was, to say
the least, a grand success in every
particular. The old "Vets" are
hard to beat in jotting up an enter
tainment of any kind, and to sur
pass them in conducting an I kvp
ing order at public institutions, is
almost impossible. Upwards of 80
numbers were sold at their celebra
tion ball in the evening; we do not
know what the proceeds amount to,
but hope they did well

time set for the
tie for the championship of th
world, between John. L. Sullivan
and Jake Kilrain. The brutal en
counter will occur in Louisiana and
thousands of dollars will change
hands on the result. Sullivan is
the favorite but Kilrain is not with
out friends and the meeting of the
two inon will result in a fight to
the finish. The result will be anx
iously awaited by those interested
in such sport.

It was evidently no time to talk
of the speakership contest or the
tariff. So the unfortunate legis
lator struggled through a few al
lusions to the beautiful scenery,
the mansion at Ml. Vernon Iving
in the dusk of evening far across ;
the placid river. Thus far we ,'
were all right, but when he '
struck the "far across the river." j
he was forever lost. With a :
fiendish delight, and perfectly ;
unconscious of his fate, he began
to tell that c lub of well Hilarmed
gentlemen, the story of the dollar
that Washington threw over the
river and that a dollar went fur
ther than. etc. etc. The story
that .Senator Everts told Lord
Coleridge, the tale that has been
told so often on the river that it
is genera illy suicidal to attempt j
it, met a response of howls and j
