rr.omuii.Y a Hoax An account has
Ikhmi published, in the Portland papers of
the arrest of a citizen of this place, last
Friday, by a detective from Wisconsin.
The s'ory". as ;iven by these tapers, is
badly mixed up. and gives no particulars,
neither the name of the detective or parly
arrested. In our opinion the whole mat
ter is a grand hoax, perpetr'ed on the
local."' of the Portland press. We have
inquired far and near to ascertain if any
prominent c t'..vii has mysteiiously disap
peared, and cannot hear of any. and ii
the party arrested hail been known at all
in town, the arrest and abduction could
not have been made without it becoming
public It is undoubtedly a soil on some
body, but on whom we are at a loss to
know, as we took the bait, as readily as
others and devoted considerable time to
"work up' tlie tacts.
. The Bulletin of the 7th insists that the
fdory which it published about a citizen
of this place being arrested is true. We
don't know whether it is not.
Fi.axk Ko.u. We hail a call last Mon
day from Capt. Joseph Kellogg, and Mr.
Marshall, formerly of the P. T. Company.
From them we learn that a company lias
been otgani.'d in Washington county,
whose object is to construct a good plank
load from Hi'. l:-boro to Portland, an 1 that
ihe stock has all been subscribed, and
work would soon be commenced. It, ap
pears that the Railroad Company has lo
cated a new town between Centerville
and Hiilsbor i, for the purpose ot break
ing down bo'h these towns, and forcing
them to the new town holongin;; to ihe
Company. The enterprising citizens of
these towns can't see it. in that light, and
propose to show that they are independent
ui' the railroad. This road will be of
great value ! the people of Washington
count 5 . and to Portland, as the farmers
will haul their products to (he m trkot.
We wish the enterprise ihe best of success.

of our fellow-citizen, Ca.d. lledg.v.in a re

We had the pleasure of a call, yester

Goon. Mr. Wm.Ihtlow has finally over

did so well. The concert will be repeated
again this evening, with a change ot pro

form Triumph in Uoston.
Referring to the election of Gaston
(Democrat) in Poston for Mayor over the
opposkion or Republican candidate, the
Poston I'l-sl has the following:
M n or Gaston":! re-election, on the basis
of tin- reform platform laid down last year,
is a desert ed triumph of these sterling
principles in local Government which are
the surest guaranty of steady municipal
progress and prosperity. It is "a victory
o! the citizens alone, released from party
trammels and wholly clear of party asso
ciations. They planned this scheme of
reform in adminis. ration one year ego,
urged to it by the wasteful and corrupting
influences that had effected an alarming
lodgment in the city government ; and
this year they have been but firmly con
sisseni with their U r.ner purpose, and coii
iirtued their last year's action by a m ijoi
iiy decisive enough to have settled ihe
question of" re-form beyond further dispute.
He was elected not to operate as a
check on local growth, but to so dis
creetly administer municipal affairs that
that growth uiiht go on without needless
uasre and corruption. And on that same
p'alform has his re election been triumph
antly secured. Last year's work is vindi
cated. It is done in Ihe interests of Poston
alone. The citizens at large are responsi
ble for it. Part isanship and jobbery have
alike been made to retire with iheir pre
tentions. We have the certainty of a re
form mayor for another year, equipped
ii:h tlie valuable experience of Hie past
twelve months, and .instructed afresh in the
wishes of the people. It is. I nrt hei mure,
with a feeling of genuine pride that Poston
regards her p reseat chief magistrate, who,
by his superior qualifications ol intellect,
training, and personal character, holds up
the office to the respect of citizens and
D::.moo::ati(j NKW.siwrF.r.s. We take the
following sensible remarks on the support
of Democratic newspapers, from the A'bant
It is ihe duty of Democrats in the coun
try to support their county Democratic
paper, if able to take but one Dem
ocratic paper, let ihat be the one pub
fished in your county. IS able to take oth
er papers, give proferanee to those most
earnest iu defence of Democracy most
earnest to attack Republicanism most
determined in behalf of the people, and
tor ihe protection of their earnings.
It is ihe dnt;i of Democrats to support
Democratic- papers--those papers that
speak out openly, boldly ; but it is not the
duty ot Democrats to support papers
which are timid, undecided, and utterly
worthless. Follow not the bugie that
gives uncertain sounds. Let Democratic
newspapers be properly patronized and
Democratic victories would be more fre
quent and more easily achieved. He who
dont;ts the power of the press, would Jo
well to study the effect of the .great circu
Radical pipers have had
among the peop
ail over this country,
and he who doub's that the more exten
sively circulated Pemoeiatic newspapers
become, the belter wi ! be the prospects
of the Democracy, can have but little faith

in oralizatlon lo a service that was bad

ber of removals for reasons of personal

a rigorous fractional proscription. It is
proposed to increase his control over the
service which he has thus arranged to his
Picinf;. ami we are asked to admire his
c outage, patriotism atid unselfishness in
approving the proposal. This is unreas

exercise of his discretion. Why did" he

A"PorTMKN'T. Mr. Dyar has been ap

Chewing goi. Py actual count, we
have in the past week met with nineteen
ladies., old and young, who were masticat
ing with astonishing vigor a compound
known as chewing gum. In order that
they may chew i.riderstandiiig'y we copy
i'te following from an exchange : Chew
ing gum is made at Podnck. Massachusetts,
of gum arable, rosin and coarse fat. Anv
kind of fat even that of dead dojs. is used
in ihe manufacture ; and when all the in
gredients are placed iti boiling kettles, a
small quantity of the most nauseous fiq.
nid foam, is put in U wLUc-a the t-uni
Wkatiies in Eastern Oi'.soox. At last
accounts from Eastern Oregon the weath
er had considerably moderated, and indi
cations of rain prevailed,. The Columbia
river is still dosed
Poitlar. It is now stated, remarks the
Detroit Union, that Grant is seriously
thinking of importing a little enteric fever
tor the use of himself and the Radical ma
jority in Congress. He has been reading
of the sudden popularity which the Prince
of Wales has acquired by having it around,
and thinks it would be a wise Administra
tion measure to use a little of it himself.
It is hoped that the plan will be carried
out. A little tht.eric. judiciously adminis
tered to the Administration, with fatal re
sults, would be the most popular measure
that could be adopted.
CoMri;ousi:.--Fiom a contemporary we
learn that the several adverse claimants
to rights in the Caruthers estate of this
city have agreed upon the general terms
ot compromise, and th;lt they are now ou
traged in settling the details. It is said in
this connection that the property, or rath
er the claims to it. will pass into'the hands
of a foint stock company. Buthihx-
We are informed by reliable authority
that no compromise has as yet been effect
ed, but negotiations looking to that end
Wiit make two bites at the cherry?
Congress hesitates over the question "of
amnesty, and thinks to compromise by re
storing to citizenship all but a lew speci
fied lasses of ex-rebels. Is it rot time
that, amnesty be general and impartial ?
We believe this to be the sentiment of the
country, and there seems lo be no need of
longer postponing what must finally come
to pass universal amnesty. X. Y. Trib
une. Philadelphia has been heretofore popu
larly known as tlie "City of proiherly
Love." but. in view of the fact that
Grant's National Convention is to meet
there to go through the form of ratifying
his re-nomination of himself, it seems lo
ns that it would be proper to re-chris! sari
it as the -City of a Prother-in-Law"s

A IScriynml riilul Uistasc.
Such is dyspepsia. The stomach and the
brain are too intimately allied for the one to
sull'er without the other, so that dyspepsia
and despondency are inseparable. It maj be
added, too, that irritation of the stomach is
almost invariably accompanied by irritation
of the temper.
The invigorating and trr.r.quilizing opera
tion of Ilo.-tt tter's bitters is most power
filly developed in cases of iiKpgcsti .11. The
first effect of this agreeable tonic is comfort
ing and encouraging. A ini'd glow pervades
the system, the chronic unea-iuess iu the re
gion of the stomach is lessened, nd the
nervous restlessness which characterizes
the disease is abated- This improvement is
not transient. It is not succeeded by ihe
return ot the old symptoms "ith superadded
force, as is always' the case when unmedi
cated" stimulants are given for the complaint.
Each dos seems to impart a perman-nt ac
cession of healthful in vigoration. Put this
is not all. Tlie aparient and anti-bilious
properties of the preparation are scarcely
s.condary in importance to i s tome virtues.
If there i's an overflow or bile, the jccretion
is soon brought within proper limits, and if
the bilarv organ is inert find torpid it is
toned and rfijalutc-d. The etlect upon the
discharging Wans is. equally salutary, and
in cases ; of constipation the cathartic action
i just sulhciert to produce the desired re
sult -rraduallv and without pain. The Hit
ters also promote healthy evaporation from
