SlNOUUVIl SUWIICAl. Oi-euation. We
were given tbepirticuUrsof a singular and
delicate surgical oporutlou which was per
formed yesterday ut tlu Oregon Home fm
the sick, by Dr. Carjienter assisted by Dr.
Pay ton. Tbo caso was that of a Utile boy. the
sonorMr. Morris residing near Aumllle,
between thirteen, aud fourteen years of ago
In conscquenco of a dl(cad condition of the
right arm, from which the boy has been suf
fering for the past elgteen months, the ulna
or smaller bone of tho fore-arm had split.
The outer piece of bone', beginning at the
wrist, had sepcrated rrom the other until it
bu rated entirely through the flesh and
protruded somo four and a half or Ave Inches.
Uy means of local treatment the laceration
thus caused had beon healed over, save Im
mediately around the protruding bone, near
the elbow, where the sore still remained
open. After putting the patient under the
Influence of chloroform, an Incision was
made from tho bouo to the olbow, and the
protruding piece unjolutod and taken out.
The little fellow was very brave about it, and
so excellent had been his trcatmont whllo an
Inmato of tho Homo, that ho was ublo to ride
out to his father's house In the afternoon af
ter the operation. Tho watchful attention
given to patients lu this institution, by the
stoward aud matron, and tho prompt and
skillful treatment which they receive from
its physicians, are combining to give to tbo
Homo a reputation to be envied by other
similar Institutions, aud one which Is bound
to Insuro success.

For tho next Tew days everything with
Hilly ran In tho same old channel. Again
he was living ou sunbeams, humming birds

strange ss It may seem the steamer ou which
Jimmy was ohlnf disliwaslur and second

Reports of mi iincertulu character havn
bsn circulated hero or late, that our friend
"One Arm Ilrown" bad been "taken lu" by
Indians ofl'astorii Oregon, but wogave llttlo

derstnuds Indian character well enough to

Irrepressible us ever, looking hardy as
