Printers are now busy in the job
bing department of this office, in the
publication of a pamphlet setting
forth the objects, prospects, purport
and business of the Waliamet Falls
Canal and Lock Company, of this
county, which will be ready for dis-.
tribution in a few days. At a re
cent meeting of the stockholders.held
in this city, the following officers were
elected for the ensuing year :
President, B. Goldsmith, Portland;
Vice President, Hon. 'James K.
Kelly, Dalles City ; Attorney and
Secretary, S LEuelat, Oregon City.

J. K. Kelly, Dalles City ; Hon. O.
llumason, Dalles City ; Gen. John
F. Miller, Salem ; Joseph Teal, Esq.;

Oregon - City.
The office of the company is in this
city, and meetings of the board of
directors will be held here, at least
for the present. Speaking of the ob
jects of the organization, etc., the
Oregonian says :
We are glad to learn that the pro
ject of building a canal and locks
around Waliamet Falls, opposite Ore
gon City, is assuming definite shape
and will undoubtedly be carried into
execution. This will be one of the
most important enterprises ever in
augurated in Oregon.
The Waliamet Canal and Lock
Company is composed of substantial
business men who always succeed in
their undertakings. I. Goldsmith,
Esq.. of the lirm of Goldsmith Bros.,
of this eitv, is President of the Com-
pany ; and we learn from him that
the work will be actively commenced
as early in the spring as the stage of
water will permit. The Company
will construct a canal 2,500 feet long
and 40 feet wide, with three connect
ing locks, each 200 feet in length.
Hon. I). P. Thompson, one of the
Directors of the Company, will go
East in a few weeks to inspect simi
lar works there, so that the Company
may have the benefit of the improved
systems of engineering in enterprises
of this kind. The estimated cost of
this great work is four hundred thou-
sand dollars. Its completion will in-
iiouuee u new cju in uur uvei navi
gation, and the people of the Wal
iamet valley, and in fact of the w hole
State, will be benelitted incalculably
by the improved facilities it will af
ford for transportation.
The time is ulso coming, and is not
far distant, when a similar work will
be performed at the Cascades of the
Columbia. In these schemes Port
land has a deep interest. Every

When a journal is forced into expla
nations respecting its right to "life, lib
erty, and the pursuit of happiness," it
goes rough with it. Our advice to
the proprietor would be if you tan
not employ our friend Gen. J. W.

place at arm's length any person who
dare presume to dictate the course
you shall pursue with respect to the
industrial enterprises of this State.

The self conceited ass of the
Democrat never lets an occasion pass
to refer to the unpleasantness in 1SGG
between the editor of this paper and
Brute Burns, then of the steamer
Pacific, but he has never once taken
pains to state the facts about that
case nor, that Burns never came to
Oregon in command of a ship after
that occurrence. Burns picked up
an irresponsible " items hunter" in
the person of Abbott, to make a note
of the assault, but learned to his sor
row that his brutal attack upon us
was not endorsed by the public. Yon
know this, Abbott, but you do not
possess manliness enough to say so.
The editor of the Vancouver
paper writes from Astoria : " The
late survey of the Columbia river has
demonstrated that its mouth is not
so dangerous as represented, and no
worse than the entrance to New York
harbor. So the Oregonians need not
reckon the Columbia river as useless.
Kailroads, however numerous, can
not supersede river navigation, or do
away with the great highways for
commerce that Nature has formed.''

deal about that dangerous bar.

growing four or' five feet tall, while
the other (Herberts nervosa) only at
tains the height of one or two feet.
The leaves of the latter variety seem
to be larger and of a deeper green
than diose of the former. The flow
ers also are larger. Nuttall has given
th esc splendid evergreens the name
of Mahunia, and by that name they
are known in the East, where they
are grown for ornamental purposes.
The "F. F. Y.'s" of Richmond
have agreed that jvhile they do not
believe the negro, in his uneducated
condition is yet fit for suffrage, yet
in view of the expression of public
opinion by the recent national elec
tion, in the hope of creating harmony
in the Union, they are willing to ac
cept universal suffrage. A committee
of nine were appointed to visit Wash
ington and urge Congress to legislate
so as to secure these to the people of
the State. A resolution was adopted
recommending the people of the State
to hold a convention February 10th
at Fuchmond, to receive the rtport
of the committee and arrange for a
canvass. This conference is the re
sult of .a movement on the part of the

would clear up the moral atmosphere
of the city amazingly. Something of
this sort seems to be absolutely neces

property. For the preservation of
quiet, the city requires a greater
number of policemen. A city of
more than S,00U inhabitants needs
more than four men to look after its

The funeral of Brother Frederick
Charmaa was attended in this city
j on the 25th ult. by a very great
proportion of our citizens, and many
from abroad. The services were
conducted at the Congregational
Church, by Eev. C. W. Todd and
Iiev. E. Gerry the latter delivering
the discourse, from the opening of
which we extract the following :
Mr. Frederick Channan was born Au
gust 22d 1S3.", in the county of Surry,
England. When about sixteen - years of
age, he came to the United States, and re
sided for awhile in the town of Mnncie,
Indiana. In January 185G. he came to
this coast and established himself in busi
ness in this city, and her has been Lis
home since that time. As a citizen of this
community, he has identified himself with
its interests, winning for himself the re
spect and confidence of his fellow-citizens,
and discharging faithfully and honorably,
duties connected with offices of triift which
they h:ive committed, at various times, to
his care. This is true not only in relation
to society at large, but in relation to those
particular societies with winch he has been
associated, where partisan feelings :ire
laid aside and men are judged by their in
trinsic worth': And now he is cut off in
the midst of his days. At that period of
life, when men are laying out for them
selves extensive plans for the future, look
ing for. and reasonably expecting, many
years of usefulness and happiness here on
earth, he has been called away from hi
labors. That monument which the com
pleted life of a useful and upright man
presents to attract the attention of. and
perpetuate his remembrance among, fu
ture" generations, has in his case been left
unfinished. Surely a broken column should
mark his resting-place, and yet, we ask,
was it unfinished ''. Only in length of days.
We may discover in the example he bus
left us, many incitements to noble effort.
Untiring in those pursuits to which he had
devoted his life, he presents us the exam
ple of one who was diligent in business.
Aud can we not'altribute to him that vir
tue which we so much admire, because so
rare, 'in men of business the virtue of
honesty, of fidelity to his word? It is ex
ceeding hard for a man so young in years
to win the reputation which he bore in so
ciety, and among men of business. In
older communities such things are the re
ward of a hmg life of labor, much more in
newer communities where men can place
no reliance upon the virtues of ancestry
to build tip their characters. It is not
simply a private grief whicu calls us to
mourn to-day. It is true, not many of us
can measure the depth of sorrow in that
widow's heart; but few of us can tell
what it is to see a brother stricken down
by our side, with whom we have been in
timately associated through many years;
to feel ties severed that have been strength
ening through manv years while dwelling
i together in a land separate from home and
kindred. It is a public grief that calls us
together wt; come to bury one, more or
less known and respected by men of busi
ness throughout tho entire Stale. .V young
and growing commonwealth can but feel
its loss as those, upon whom it must de
pend for its vigor are taken away. His
loss will be more deeply felt within the
narrower circle of the community in which
he hits so long resided. Here you meet
his friends on every side no enemy lifts
his voice against him. How often has it
been remarked that few men engaged in
business transactions have been more suc-
j eessful in winning friends, and have es
caped tin? unpleasantness of awakening
hostile feelings against themselves. Quiet,
unobtrusive in his manners, genial in his
disposition, receiving ia a kind and pleas
ant way, which awakened confidence,
j those with whom he entered into business
j relations, none could deprecate more than
he the growth of any vices which should
serve to injure the good name of the com
munity. The weight ot his influence was
given to the side of truth and justice, as
well in local as national all airs. His de
votion to business did not destroy his pub
lic spirit. Ia all schemes to promote the
public good, he was ready to bear a part.
To charitable enterprises he lent his aid.
Though not a member of any Christian
Church, he readily saw the importance of
sustaining religious institutions, and was
willing to bear his share in their support.
We find him without reproach in his moral
character. Like other men he may have
had his foibles, but we spread over them
all the broad mantle of charity, and hold
up liw virtues as wortny 01 emulation
j These which so fully commended him to
the esteem and warm friendship of his fel-
low-citizens, can but make his loss most
deeply it-It in the still narrower circle ot
home and relatives. A void has been cre-
! Hted I,erf' that cannot be filled
pathies of neighbors and friends, so will
ingly tendered upon an occasion like this,
may soften the intensity of grief, yei the
weight of the burden must rest upon them
alone. May God give them strength to
bear it without one murmuring thought,
lie expressed himself ready, when he felt
the time of his death draw near, to abide,
without repining, the decision of the Al
mighty. It remains for those upon whom
the blow has fallen so heavily, to bear up
under it with the same meek and quiet
spirit, assured that God himself hath done
it all for the good of the sorrowing, aud
for his own glory.

The ladies of thexBaptist Church in j

George C. Chandler, on Christmas

of his services as a minister. Ilis
acknowledgment of the gift was
couched in language as follows, to
Mrs. Henry Warren. lie says :
The valuable present that I re
ceived through you, I trust, is prop-
erly appreciated. I take this method
of expressing my sense of the value
of such a token of confidence and es
teem. It is the more highly valued
on account of my sense of great un
worthiness as a minister of ihe Cos
pel. Each donor is affectionately
remembered. 1 trust your prayers
will accompany the gift, that as this
body is thus clothed for its labor, the
soul may be mores, richly clothed with
tho pure, garment of Christ's right

Jealousv ks alvvavs termed the crcen-cved
monster," from the fact that those afflicted
with that disease always have a iieeuliar un
easiness and fear about them, and see every
thing with discolored organs. Jealousy
uatur.illv is converted into envy, which is
mortified pride or ambition that another has
obtained what one has a strong desire to oh- j
tai-i or possesss, and motto-mania tinallv !
Saivdlery. J. 11. Schram, of this
City, is now manufacturing the be.-t Saddlery
and Harness iu the State. He will have at
least 50 sets of nil grades, from fine to com
mon, tinished and ready for sale noNt month,
and more than that number of Saddles. He
is bound to make a trade wilh any man who
wishes to buy of him. He uses both Oregon
and California leather in his establishment,
and his work bears anvist excellent reputation
abroad. We hope that citizens of our own
county will think of this, when they want auy
articles in his line.
K3.A11 persons who keep Howe A:
Stevens' Family Dye Colors for sale can be
relied on for fair dealing, for the reason that
they cst the retailer twenty-live ceats per
dozen more than other kinds" of Dyes in the
market, while, he retails them all at the same
pnee consequently he makes 2.1 eti., doz
en more, by selling an inferior article.
