BOOK NOTICES.
"We have received a copy of the January
number of the " New York Teacher and
American Educational Monthly' TLis is
published by J. "W. Schermerhorn & Co.,
14 Bond street. It occupies an important
place in our educational literature, and is
us y aiuaoie ior the people o: every State
as for those of the State ia which it is
published. The question? discussed are
of general interest. The present number
opens with an article upou the " Catholic
view of education in the United States'
Though we are not ready to accept all the
statements made, yet we can but admire
the spirit of the writer. The article upon
the ventilation of school rooms contains
many valuable suggestions. Some of the
writers are disposed to be sarcastic a
spirit unworthy so dignified a journal. Its
general tone is good, and we hopv it may
be widely circulated on this coast.
The " Overland Monthly'" for'January
is the initial number of the second volume.
It comes to us as the representative, of the
highest forms of secular literature upon
this coast. We are much pleased with its
general appearance, and gladly recom
mend it as worthy of generous support.
Some of the poetry in the present number
has attracted our attention as comparing
favorably with that which emanates from
the "Hub." The writer of the article
upon the study of the Bible should have
been more careful in his statements of
histor.cal . facts. Such expressions as
" bamboozled" are not elegant anywhere.
Much more are they out of place in a
magazine article. A. Roman & Co. are
the publishers, Saa Francisco.
"Harper's Magazine" for January we
hare received. Though its age entitles it
t3 be ranked as an old magazine, yet it al
ways comes to us as good as new. There
is certainly no danger of its being super
seded by modern rivals. It contains the
usual amount of light reading for the wives
and daughters, with valuable historical
sketches for the more thoughtful. One
giving us a glimpse of the dark side of
Spanish history, is of especial interest, in
view of events now transpiring. Another,
giving a brief sketch of the early Roman
Bishops, must be far from flattering to the
advocates of Popish infallibility. This
number also contains the second of a series
of articles upon England, which are de
scriptive, historical, philological. c, and
withal full of interest. We have no space
for further notice. We can only say buy
and read for yourselves.
Hours at Home" we always wel
come, as we have no doubt thousands of
others do, all over the land, and some "be
yond the sea." The January nnmber con
tains some 'papers'' of more than tran
sient value. We have read with deep in
terest '"Progress." by Dr. Bushneil. in
which from an entirely new philosophical
stand-point he discusses the modern ra
tionalistic theories of progress. He take
up in order the peculiar theories of Dar
win, Spencer, Humboldt and Emerson,
and refutes them by a process new and to
our mind convincing. Prof. Evans gives
an historical sketch of a new form of re
ligious fanaticism which has been fasten
ing itself upon the minds of many during
the last few years, among the Mohamme
dans of Persia. It Ls not unlikely that
great political changes will be the result
of the movement here described. One
other article of interest is a refutation of
a theory advanced by a writer in this
magazine, not very lung ago. concerning
the use of spectacles. The former writer
denied, the present affirms the necessity
for their use. This magazine fills an im
portant place iu our literature, and we
can feel that it is always ' sale" in its the
ology and morals.
Our Young Folks" for December
has just been laid upon our table. It
conies well freighted with interesting
things for the younger members of our
families. There are one or two stories for
the " Christmas Time." We discover a
new name of world-wide reputation
added to the list ot contributors: Mrs.
Craik, author of John Halifax." "Run
ning Away," lioin her pen, is by far the
most interesting of any thing in the present
number. We notice the death of Mrs.
Anna Maria Wells, of Boston Highlands,
who. iu years past, has written many in
teresting articles for this magazine; She
was seventy-three years of age. but her
heart was young as ever, hence she found
a warm place in the affections of all, old
and young. This number closes the fourth
volume.

A correspondent of the Crego
nian says that the P. T. Co. propose
building a Canal and Locks on the
Oregon City side of the Wallamet, at
the falls commencing in March.
We are glad to hear it and can onlj'
wish that the P. T. Company had
availed itself of the same benefits of
the law taken by the Wallamet Ca
nal Company, and built the Locks
two years aio.
Elsewhere to day we present an
exhaustive article upon the labor
question, from the Oregonian
It
covers all the ground necessary 10 ue
taken in the matter, and puts just
such a face upon the snbject as the
facts warrant. One fact which has
not yet been treated of is this: We
are credibly iuformed that the pro
jector of this laborers' movement is
, 1 1 . V
astonished at the magnitude of results
from his efforts, lie started his mu
tiny to have a little fun, it is said,
and Gnds that besides the local effect,
it has called forth most able and
lengthy editorials in the Metropolitan
papers, monopolized the news dis
patches for California papers, and ex
cited the citizens of every town in
Oregon. The most fun which we
have had about this movement was
upon witnessing the disgust of Col.
Dow, Editor of the Commercial, on
Sunday last. He came to Oregon
City to address the laborers on Sat
urday evening, and found barely
eight persons to listen to him, the re
mainder of the crowd having gone to
Washington Hall to witness a negro
performance by the Apollo Troipe
whither Dow went, swearing that a
mooarchial government was the only
system that should be tolerated ia
America things having come to 6uch
a pass that free Americans would eo
to a nigger show instead of a public
meeting where a vital principle of tol
eration was to have been discuised.

As the aye in which we live demands
progress in, Farming Implements as
well as m- all other branches of indus
try. I have entered extensively upon the
Manufacture of the Celebrated
I'iesI Cwsoas; Flow !
Better known in Oregon as the WOL
GMO T PL O Jr. This Plow com .
bines all the desirable points of a per
fect implement being simple in con
s1ructio?i, cheap, durable, and 0 light
draft. The only Premiums which were
awarded to Gang Plows at the. great
Implement trial at Mat loon, Sept. 4,
1866. by the State Agricultural Soci-
etij of Illinois, were awaraed to this
Plow. The following is an extract
from the Report of the Commissioner
of Agriculture, for the year 1 860, and
may be found on page 21G of that re-
i port :
'The Gang Plow made by J. C. Pfeil,
Arenzville, Cass county Illinois, is received
with no little favor in the west. Almost in
credible stories are told of its excellence
and efficiency in plowing the prairie fields
of Illinois and other States.
" The depth of the furrow is regulated by
the crank-axle, which is so arranged that
the ploughs can be driven deeper or shal
lower at the pleasure of the driver, when the
team is niovmg.by means of the lever.
We also manufacture sulkey plows for
small boys, or infirm persons who are unable
to manage a team of three or four horses.
This gang or sulkey plow, will cut a fur
row from i to 10 inches deep.
"The committee who tested the draught
of this plow with a dynamometer state, that
it ran lighter by 140 pounds,than other plows
when running at the same depth, and held
by the plowman while on foot."
JSST' With this Plow one man can do
more icork than two men can do with
icalking Plows, and the same amount
of team. Hence, it will be seen that
it will more than pay for itself in one
season's plowing.
I will also manufacture the
WEB-F00T GANG PLOW!

Web-Foot Walking Plow !
Both patterns of my own invention,
for xchich patents have been applied
jor, and which have, withstood practi
cal tests xcith the best results .receiving
faltering testimonials wherever seen
or tried.
Novo, tlie Farmers of Oregon
are invited to give the Oregon City
Manufactory a trial. Vo not purch
ase a Plow of any description until
yau have examined my make and
prices, as I am determined to sell at
less than importer's rates, by giving
yon a more durable article,and a guar
antee warranting the same.

AMERICAN
Waitharn Watches
Proof of their Sujieriority.
Pcnusvlvanla Itailrond Company,
Office of the General Superintendent, f
Altona, Pa., Dec. is, ls67. f
Gentlemen : The watches manufactured by
you have been in use on this Railroad for
several years by our enginemen, to whom
we furnish watches as part of our equip
ment. There are now some three hundred
of them carried on our line, and we consider
them good and reliable time keepers. In
deed, I have great satisfaction in saying
your watches give us less trouble, and have
worn and do wear much longer without re
pairs than any watches we have ever had in
use on this road. As you are aware we for
merly trusted to those of English manufac
ture, of acknowledged good reputation, but
as a class tbey never kept time as correctly,

Gentlemen : I have no hesitation in saying
that I believe the great majoritj of locomo
tive engineers have fouud by experience that
Waltham Watches are the most satisfactory
of any for their uses. Tbev run with the
greatest accuracy and steadiness, notwith
standing the rough riding of an engine, and,
as I have never kuown one to wear out, they
must be durable. I hope to see the time
when railway companies will generally
adopt your watches, and furnish them to all
engineers and conductors. In my opinion
it would greatly tcud to promote "regularity
and safety.
Yours respectfully,
CHARLES WILSON, G. Chief
Engineer, Brotherhood of Locomotive En

LET IT BE DISTINCTLY BORNE I.V
rnind that IIOSTETTER'S BITTEITi
is a MEDICINAL PREPARATION', r.ot .
beverage, and that it is entirely free fzen
the attributes which create a'ner foster a pas
sion for stimulants, and which belong to all
the distilled and fomented liquors of com
merce. Its alcoholic element is derived froi j
sound rye a grain' which; aCCbrdihg to ?Ik
testimony of the most distinguished iniyti
cal chemists, yields a more wholesom spirit
than any otlier known substance. But tvj

The very test bronds of thtfse liquors pro

Medical Stall's of the Army ard Savy to any
other liquor, are not to be coPp'ared in ex
cellence with the article used in the coftccc
tion of the GREAT STOMACH It is
subjected, in the first instance, to a process
which deprives it of the pungent and acne
elements proved by chemical test to exist it.
even what are deemed the finest imported
and domestic spirits, and after bciug tbu
purifies is kept on hand long enough V
give it mellowness before being medicatedL
The chief virtue of the preparations is uot
however, in its spirituous basis, but in the
jliices of the tonic, aperient, corrective and
anfibilions vegetable products so' largdfy
intermixed witl it.
Perhaps, it may be urged, that if tbey im
part to the alcoholic fluid its preventive and
remedial qualities, water impregnated with
the same ingredients would answer the pur
pose as well. Nothing but profound igno
rance 6f the laws of physiology and patho
logy can excuse such an error. Only by a
diffusible stimulant can the medicinal con
stituents, that are to fortify the system
against disease, or counteract diseased ac
tion, be conveyed directly to Sieir destina
tion. The stimulant rnpidly pervades th
animal structure, earning with it io tha
points where it is needed, the required' anti
dote. Water will not cfo this". It has, com
paratively speaking, no propelling or diffu
sive power. Nor is this all. Nothing bu't
alcohol will preserve the medicinal picperty
of vegetable extracts in a, fluid state. Mix
them with water aud the compound wiK
ferment, turn sour and becotfie worse than
valueless.
It is claimed that HOSTETTER'S Bf
TEKS commend themselves to tbe special
favor of the Temperance Physician, r.s tha
only diSusive stimulant which he can pre
scribe without danger of unduly exciting tbe
brain of his patient, and of creating that
morbid thirst for alcohol which doses at tin -medicated
spirits are so apt (6 engender.
To argue with the dogmatists who assert
that stimulants are itfways unnecessary and
pernicious, would be a waste of ttnifr. Thtf
most eminent lights fcf Medical Science have
settled that question; and it is not worth
while to hnve a controversy with the rush
light. The leading champions of temper
ance in the Uuited Stales, Horace Grecle.v
among the number, have announced that
they are not in favor of prohibiting tbe em
ployment of spirituous liquors as medi
ciue.i. So much for the moral claims of the arti
cle under the temperance code. The grottnd
being thus cleared, aut? it is hoped, 10 th
satisfaction or every rational champion of
sobriety, the specific application of the Bit
ters to the prevention and cure of the " ilia
that flesli is heir to," comes next in order.
Peasons whose lives are peculiarly sensi
tive are said to be of a "bilious habit." The
morbid influences which affect others, in a
general way, seem in their cases to operate
directly and mainly upon the biliarv ordain
Many who are thus predisposed to an orer
flow of bile aTe snbjecf to periodical attacks
of biliousness, accompanied by pain in thi
right side, laeguor; pain between the should
ers, gloomy feelings, and that peculiar ting-o
of the complexion which indicates that u
portion of the bilc'which should have passed
off through the bowels, has been misdirected
to the venous system, and is present in th
superficial bloodvessels. To avert theso
symptoms, oh3 the general disorder ot tho
internal organs, w hich they involve, it is ad
visable for individuals of a bilious habit to
take at Uust two" doses of HOSTETTER'S
BITTERS daily at such times as they have
reason to apprehend an attack. Indeed, all
who have a constitutional and ternperamen
tul tendency to liver complaints would do
well to take a dose of this admirable ANTI
BILIOUS STOMACHIC every day. Wken
tho great secretive gland is seriously disor
dered, the medicine usually resorted to 11
mercury, which, unless administered witli
very great caution, is infinitely mure dan
gerous than the disease it is intended tor
subdue. In a large majority of the cases
treated with calomel, or blue piif, the anti-CD
bilious and altera'tive properties of tli'e Bit
ters would produce the desired" efTecf. And
let it be borneiir mind that, whereas mcrcary
