Grant's Mkdal. The gold medal ordered
bj Congress for presentation to General Grant,
in commemoration of his victories, is being
designed by Mr. Lentze, of San Francisco.
Sons scoundrels recently broke into a CeUb-
olio Church at San Diego, robbed it of most of
its valuables, desecrated the tomb ofihe
founder of the church,, and ,p.e.rormed many
other acts of rascality.,
Niw Vabkit. Read the advertisement of,
the Dalles market, Opposition it the life of
trade, and Messrs .Hellef A.Sbaw are deter
mined that the, people .shall ,npt, suffer for
want of cheap meat.
"Anothib Richmond." It will be, seen from
his card, that ,P.. T, Tuthill is, iq the fijeld,
ready to contest fhe.Cjty Mflrahalship wj,tb,
comer. The contest for this oe .begins , to
assume a triangular farm, and is, becoming de;
cifdedly interijsting.j the .language of the
ring, we say "May the best man win."
Ra Mb. Robibts, in the, Portland Avocatu,

Fbom Boisi. A gentleman named.. Frank
came through dirett from Boise yesterday,
lie left, the mines on the 12th Inst., making
the trip through, in six days .traveling time.
M,r. F, reports jist previous, to bis, leaving, j.
heavy fall of snow in the Basin, much ..to the
joy of miners. The Impression, now is that
tae supply of water will be fully equal to that
of last year,', and that there is now a guaran
tee for a fair mining season, Far a month or
two it has been feared that owing to tbe scar
city of,,water miners, wpuld be able to accom
plish b'utJHtle but all, fears on this bead are
dissipated, and every bod calculates upon
a prosperous season.,
Staoi Lihs Fpa0TOit .CiTr. Arrange
ments hava been, perfected for placing a line
of stages on the road, between Dalies, ana
Canyon Oily. The prppriata? pf the line, Mr.
Strlcklen, bas now at the Da,!es two first-ejass
Concord cpacbts, wbi&h.,ara,tbe pioneers of
others to follow. Tbe rod. ispartlally stock
ed, and a stage will, leave this (Sunday morn
ing, on an experimental trip. The projeptor
of the line has abundant means, and should
tbe travel warrant It, is prepared to place a
daily.- line. upon. tbe,. route. We havejitfje
doubt that this movement,, J but tbe preliml
nary to a line of stages that will connect Dalles
with tbe Boise and Owyhee country. Par
ties who have been oyer the loute, assure us
that tbe road,.by,,wsy pf Canyon City, is eigh
ty miles shorter than. that by way of way of
Umatilla, and with tbe additional advantage
of an abundance of wood, grass, and water.
Lewiston Itims. From tbe Lewiston Age,
of tbe 1 2th , we condense the following : Great
excitement exists in relation to the Kootenai
mines, and large numbers are preparing for.a
rush In that direction. Tbe Indians .'la the vi
cinity of Lewiston are quite wiling to supply.
the whites with horses, at reasonable rates
The Age advises disappointed .miners te. go, to
the Oro Fino, Elk City, Florence an. Warren
camps forthwith, for (here many, pf 4Uem,,can
find a good ppportunlty to work, to profit, be.
fore tbe waters of tbe camps became scarce,
A. boat of capacity to carry about twenty men,
with .their, supplies, has beenlaunched aLew
is ton, an,d, is designed to ascend Snake river to
the bars .about the mouth of Salmon. She
will take up a goodly number of miners, with
their supplies for tbe season. These men have
w,hat ,1b ey, call $8 and $10 bar diggings, which
tbey.nsaiclain will last them through tbe sea
on. Rich mines. have, been discovered and
developed in tbe vicinity kof Hell Gate, dur
ing the past Winter, Capt., Knox, of Co. B
of 1st Infantry of W. T.- Volunteers, is dan
geroualy ill at Fort Lapwal, with .hemorrhage
of tbe lungs.
TatATBf, This evening a great, bl will
be pressnted, Mr. Waldron will sustain,, tbe
principal character, supported by the Star
Immiany. , 1
We are almost shnt out from tbe outer world
of late, from the fact th,atur mall ha "dried
up " dried up, .effectually In fact, daring tbe,
last year, we bave,.been. supplied wjtb mail
mtt,er wjth very great regularity, at the exr
pe,nse of .ft.few individuals, who have unwit.
tlngly offered themselves as a sacrifice for tbe
good of Baker county. One after another bas
tried the,, experiment of carrying the mail
for ns, and found It a losing business, and the
last young man. who "tried it on" seemed per
fectly infatuated,, actually having persisted in
traveling over the, Blue Mountains all winter,
tbfpaigh snqw, mud, rain, bail, ice, and defy
ing weather ranging from quite, intemperate
to ever so fa,j below sero, and,, he. actually,
wopjdn't stop nptil he had, run, into debt so
far that his horses were attached fop their
feed, and actually, sold,, from, .under him. I
have not seep hlrn now for two months, though
he max have, a mail-bag on bis back, and be
going it alone on foot, for al, I kpow. An
other man bas nqyv, kindly taken hold of the.
nail, but;, there is no&nowiog what may come
of it. I dp, hope be may prosper, but I am
not sanguine., We finally did get, the other
day, six weeks' mail in a lump, but that is, pot
just the way we would like to get our news,...
Spring is opening, and little show for water
through these Northern mines.. Auburn, how
ever, will have the greatest advantage in, tbe.
fact that her ditches are the most extensive,
and ber supply wil be the, most certain. Al-J
ready miners, are coming in,biitttbere remains
just enough winder wjth.uitojwep tbe waters
back, and enable, operators here, to commence.
Auburn w.i.11 come .down to the status of a fair
mining camp, and support two, .hundred and
fifty nepers,. half a dozen stores, -S quack . doc
tor or.twp, and a couple of saloons of course.
The whole of tbe region around here, will payl
Some thing for half acenturj; to. .come, an d,.
Quarts in places' will pay richly. Baker coun
ty will be a good county some time or other,
even when Powder River Valley and mines
are left alone, without the aid of tbe weivlth

to be erected iuto a new county next. Fall.,
This will be a stirring season (n, (be, npper.

and some little probably, for the. present one.
And indeed, tbe world , may, as well prepare
for another Washoe, if not something richer.
For myself, I am about to bid. lAuhuxn adieu
sqonand seek the argentiferous regions of
pwyheev where I hope, to find more Items for,
my editorial friends, and. the reading public,
than. this; vicinity- has. afforded of late. Of.

Our Union Convention went off harmoni
ously, Saturday. Notice was sent ahead, that
Portland folks would be on hand to receive
proxies; and of course the Portlanders won't
bave a chance to cast any of our votes. Ger,
Coffin was up hereabout Convention time, at
tending to bir interests in this part of tbe
world. He told the writer there was a plan
afoot in the Dalles to defeat the nomination of
Judge Wilson for Judge of tbe 5th Judicial
District. I am inclined to think the old chap
was interested la tbe plot; but I think tbe
plot will not Interest him much in the end.
Judge Wilson has rendered himself deservedly
popular with the people of ibis, county,, and.
is the unanimous first cboicQ. of ,lh,e popple ,of
tbe Union party here, and, we hope. he,wUl
prove equally popular elsewhere, and continue.
to serve us in . his present official capacity for
tbe full .term, ensujngupless be can do deci
dedly better., I may nejrer write to you aeain
from Auburn, aad I fear nobody else ever
will. B. A. C.

says,;.."Len. Harris, late County Warden, left
he city yesterday, by tbe San Francisco boat,
on a ,tr;p , to the Northern, mpes. At San
Francisco, ,he will be joined, by. W. Higgins,
late Deputy. Cpunty Recorder, and D, . Mc
Laughlin, bothepflSacramento. It,ls reported
that tbey design to. go, to, Wlla, Walla, and
from there proceed by land to a newly dii
covered and very rich mining locality, five
hundred miles in tbe interior, fro'n which
they have received specific Information from
Tbaiim. To Wells, Jfargo k Co , for very
many express iay.ors.'..
IsipftovEiiiHT.- For several days 1 ack, work-
nuabave, been engaged in removing the old
frame building at tbe south-west corner of
Main , and, Court streets. The structure In
question,, was a relio of the olden time, and
if we are correctly informed was originally
designed for a hotel. At one lime, tbe build
ing was occupied bs a hotel and restaurant by
J. Juker, Esq., but more recently it bd been
tbe private residence of Col. Gates. A few
months sinre, the Messrs. Elfelt purchased the
property, and the old building is made to give
way for a substantia! stone and iron structure,
which will be occupied by tbe proprietors as
a dry goods and general merchandize estab
lishment. We bare been permitted to exam
ine the design of the new building,, and ,ceri .
tainly if the plans of the architect are adhered
to,. the Messrs. Elfelt will have the handsomest
business structure at the Dulles. As far as
practicable, tbe building will be exclusively
of stone and iron, and as a consequence fire
proof. The building will front 25 fqet rn
Main street, with a depth of 90 feet on. Court
street. The front, will be. of, iron, witb stene
for the end and sidewnllst. Tbe design for the
front is exceedingly beautiful, and tbe whole
structure promises -to.be an ornament to the
town,, We, are pleased to, chronicle, ImDnove-
meot&of this .kind., as going. to. show tbe con-J
nqence.raen of means .nave in tbeTuture of
Regular Inion Namiiwlions.
