The Wenat, having been .thor
oughly overhauled and refitted, took
her place in the line of the Walla met

have four boats daily to Portland,
except on Sundays, when the Ahrt

A man who has been employed
upon ttic llaaroad in this county,
shot himself at Canemah on the
morning of the 4th. His name was
Coonis. He bore the name of being
a man of good character. The shot
was from a Henry rifle and entered
the forehead, passing through the
head causing iustaut death. An
inquest was held over the remains by
Coroner Dr. Barclay, and a Verdict
rendered in accordance with the
Mr. C. Deardorff, of Damascus,

On Wednesday last the team of
a Mr. Garret backed otrthe wharf in
.this city, ruining the wagon to which
they were attached, but fortunately
.doing no serious dimago to the
horses. The wago 1 was loaded, and
.a part of the freight was damage!.
Vilhai; cf this county, raa away,
damaging both horses and wagon
badly, li'hqir course lay up river,
.from Oregon City to Canemah, and
they made good :time. A few days
ago a team upset a wagon on the
' -bluff west of tie river, throwing load
and all down a steep :for a distance
f over thirty feet.. We are not
without casualties iu dull tknes.
About three o'clock on Wednes
day morning, the McLaughlin House
in this city was entered by a burglar
who first explored the dining room
and kitchen, and captured all the eat
ables he could find. He Uim pur
sued his investigations into some of
the leepi-H so&rtmeut. in nr. -f
which he seized the pantaloons of a
Mr, McCaun, and rilled the pockets
of their contents in cash, lie then
jiroccedej to explore the room of Mr.
Terry McLaughlin, but just as he was
about to leave, the sleeper awoke aud
-comprehending the situation, gave
chase, at tho same time raising an
alanrj. There were two of the scoun
drels, one of them remaiuing on the
outside to keep watch. As the first
burglar rushed out, pursued by the
lodger, this outside man fired at the
pursuer and eventually - took to his
neels. The affair created some up
roar, but it was soon rjaieted, every
body returning again to bed. About
an Lour later, the doors were agaiu

There are some queer inscrip

this city, and some unlawfully stamped
which remain uncalled for by the
parties who deposited them there.
A number of letters remain at the
office of Wells, Fargo & Co., id this

A new boat has just been com,
pleted and put into operation at
Boone's ferry, on the Wallamet,
which is much larger, lighter, and
more serviceable than the old one.
This is now the popular overland
route to Salem from Portland, simply

Mr. Eugene Semple passed
through this city on Sunday last, en
route to San Francisco, there to pur
chase materials for a hew Democratic
paper at Portland, to be published
by Patterson & Semple. Tnis new
enterprise has probably forced the
recent changes in the Herald.
Prepared Coffke. The new ad
vertisement of J. F. Jones & Co.,
corner of Second and Main streets,
Portland, in our paper to-day, speaks
of another article of home production
to which we desire to ask special at
tention, of our readers. ... The coffee
prepared by Messrs. Jones & Co., is
certainly superior to any other brand.
The demand for it where it has been
introduced, as well as the words of
those who use it commend it to all.
Ask for this quality of coffee, and if
your grocer has none on hand, com-,
bine to have him send for some on
trial. We recommend Jones' Coffee.
The Odd Fellows. The past
year has been one of the most pros
perous for Odd Fellows in the history
of the order. From reports presented
at the recent session of the Grand
Lodge, says the Brooklyn (N. Y.)
Union, which we find summarized in
the October number of the American
Odd Fellow, we learn that the num
ber of new lodges organized was over
three hundred, aud of initiations of
new members, forty thousand, the
number of lodges being now about
3,200, and of contributing members,
250,000. The receipts of , the order
reached the immense amount nf
$2,350,000, and the amotmt disbursed
for relief was a trifle over seven hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars,
showing a good condition of merm
bers not needing rclieT, as well as of
the order in being able to afford three
times as much relief as was called for.
The tJrand Lodge gave a higher de
gree of prominence than it has before
enjoyed to the degree of ltebekah
(women's degree) by authorizing the
institution of Kebekah Lodges, with
their own separate officers, rules, and
treasuries. The prohibition against
the admission of candidates who have
lost a limb was modified so as to
leave the matter discretional with the
subordinate lodges. This is of inters
est to disabled soldiers, who were ex
cluded under the old rule. " TI13 26th
of April next being the uflieth anni
versary of the establiah.nent of Odd
Fellowship iu America, is to be hon
ored with a grand semi centennial na
tional celebration at Philadelphia.
Mr. II. H. Johnston, City As
sessor, has completed the assessment
of property iu Portland for the year
1SG8. The following statement of
totals is published
Value of lana
Value of lots. .
Personal property 2,5y2,Sl5
Total prop'ty subject tax. 4,COO,7GO
In 1867 the totals were as follows:
Value of land.. 88,925
Value of lots. v 2,147,040
Personal property...... 2,271,800
Indebtedness.. ........ v 235, 173
Total prop'ty subject tax. 4,271,190
A comparison of these figures will
show some results interesting to prop
erty holders, says the Oregonian.
Tbe increase in the value of lands is
$4,175. Lots have increased in value
$227,125 ; personal property, $321,
105. The indebtedness of property
holders has nearly doubled, having
increased $255,045, or nearly as
much as the increase in the value of
lots. The total increase of property
subject to taxation is only $320,570
a much smaller figure than most
people would have guessed. Though
a large portion of the indebtedness
shown, is that of wholesale merchants
for stocks of winter goods and will
be greatly reduced before spring, the
figures are too large, and show that
our people are getting too much in
the way of doktg business on credit.

During a T;flit in the West last Fall. I con
tracted chills and fever, which brought me
to my bed, and finally terminated in typhoid
fever, aiid cohtirJPd uie to my roout for sev
eral tiiontliSj during which time 1 was so
prostrated that I almost despaired of ever
recovering health; having entirely lost my
appetite, ' for days not being able to eat a
morsel ; added o- which I was much dis
tressed with a reeling sensation in my head,
and passed many sleepless nights till from
debility caused by my, prostrate condition,
brought about by the fever. - At this stage
Of my condition a friend recommended lue
to use vour celebrated Stomach Bitters : but
being morally opposed to the use of stimu
lants i n any fbrm4 1 ut tirst declined, hut
afterwards yielded mv prejudices, and after
th? medicine for several weeks as directed,
my appetite returned, and with it I am rap
idly regaining my former strength and
vigor. My slet-p (from the loss of which I
had suffered much i has never been better
than it is now1, and the reeling sensation
(belire alluded to) has entirely lett me. My
bowels, W'hich were much constipated and
irregular, arne now quite natural) and, iu
fact, 1 am glad to say that I feel myself a
new man, and tender you this testimonial of
my appreciatiou, iu order that others suffer

virtues, which prejudice prevented me from
enjoying for so long a period. 1 may also

eficial ellect your Bitiers had, recommend
that I use them regularly.
