From W. F. BHggs, Esq., we learn that
work on the tunnel "of the Tellurium is
still rapidly progi easing. The tunnel has
now reached a distance of of 400 feet. A
hard chan-cter or rock was met with a day
or two ago, which miners oelieve to be the

port ot this proposition is the late rapid

is pleased with the prospect, and predicts

Too Muchly Married.
A letter from Empire City states that

NtSw and Cheap Music.
Lovers of new first-class sheet musi,
embracing some of the compositons of the
greatest ( composers, at less price than such
sheet music can be purchased in San Fran
cisco, cannot do better than to call at the
store of Dr. J, Woodruff. He has a collec
tion of fine music of over five hundred
different pieces, from wuicb a cotnptenet
critic cannot fail to select something nice
and pleasing. It is without doubt the fin
est stock in the line ever brought to Rose
burg. Go and see for yourself.
An American Game.
The other evening a gentleman from
Oakland and a son of France, held forth
in one of the saloons in a little game of
even-up. j It is needless to say that the
fair fame of our sister city was not dis
graced by anything in the shape of poor
playing, and thos who were preseutldur-
ing the progress of the game can readily
testify, that a Frenchman is a nervous
and excitable creature at the beet.
New Diggings Found. .',
A letter received from Jim Woodward
and Uncle John t4ildereleeve states that
theT have found new placer mines on
Lee's creek, a tributary of Myrtle creek.
They found as high as $2 50 to the pan on
the bedrock. Whether the diggings were
extensive or not the prospectors are as yet
unaDleto determine. We hope the ooys
have struck it rich.
Last Monday Dr. John Catto was arrest

Monday evening two squaws and as

SECURED HIS PARDON.
Jimmy Dodge, aged 14 years, concluding
to follow after tue life of Robinson Crusoe,
and hari. g disobeyed his parents, sudden
ly left his home in this county, and af'er
many adventures, wended his way to the
north, at last arriving in the Touchet coun
try, at Dayton. He finding a life of adven
ture lather less romantic than his early
reading had led him to believe, aud yearn
ing once more to return home and being
without means, the little fellow, not realiz
ing the result, deliberately rode away a
ponj, the property of a Dayton citizen; and
going to Walla, bold the animal and was
about to journey down the river on the cars
and boats, when he was arrested, taken to
Dayton, and there bound over to await
the action of the Grand Jury, where be
was indicted, pleaded guilty and sentenced
to tbe lowest penalty one year in the pen
itentiary. But his parents hearing of his
arrest employed Hon. Binger Hermann to
proceed there and defend him if possible;
but the tacts being conclusive, the above
course was adopted, and then after diligent
labor, Mr. Hermann obtained oue of tbe
finest petitions of pardon, tcuring the
names of nearly ail the Grand Jury, prose
cuting attorney, complaining witness, all
the county officers and members elect to
the Legislature, Representative elect to
Congress, members of the Walla Walla
and Dayton Bar. and citizens generally of
the place With this petition he proceeded
toOlympia, and a pardon was granted bt
the Governor. The lad is now on his way
home, rejoicing at his happy deliverance,
a better and wiser boy, it is to be hoped.
The Literary Society debated the Chi
nese question last Wednesday evening.
The speakeis arguing against the immi
gration of Chinese to this country held
there could be no competition between the
American free and Chinese slave laborers ;
that they exhaust the resources of and
make no return to the country; and on the
principle of self-defense, under the Constis
tution, Chinese immigration to this country
should be restricted. The negative held
that the Chineso only filled a vacancy; they
were peaceable citizens and interfered with
no one; that they were a necessity to carry
on public work. The negative argued
ably, but their positions were refuted and
the decision was rgainst them. The negan
tive was represented by E. G. Hursh and
George Kimball, the aBrmative by fcred
Floed and L. H.Wells.
Last Thursday, the 12ih, while standing
in tront of a fire-place at his borne ou jp-
