wlM.rtf will bo found, the pall for tin
Democratic Convention of this county.
Tbe County Committee acted in harmony
with the suggestions made by the State
Central Committee, and designated the
(th fur the primary meetings and the 2'Jd
of March for the County Convention. We
hope every Democrat will be on hand at
the primary meeting?, and pee that good
and worthy men are sent to the Corn?!
Convention. All the people w ant is a good
ticket, and tnccess will be tbe reward ol
the Convention. Let every person select
ed as a delegate to the County Convention
be sure to attend,, and let there be no
proxies. We would suggest that it would
be a most opportune time to organize
Democratic clubs throughout the county
on the day of the primary meetings, and
Jet the cause of Democracy .be kept alive
from that day until the 3d of June. Lei
Cl.ACKAM.l.l ?KIUK CoXK. About 11
o'clock last Sunday morning, the Clacka
mas Bridge on the public road,, the largest
and mo.-t expensive bridge in tbe county,
look Ls departure to parts unknown. This
w anticipated by all who were fimiiiar
witb the eondiijon of the structure. This
blb'.gc wi4 built ten years ago. anil last
Fiinimer the P.oad Supervisor for the Dis
trict examined it an J found that F0!l!?Of
the lower tenons and braces had rotted
away, which required repairing. He made
jvport to the County Commissioners, and
recommended that the b idge be imme
diately repaired belore hiirh water, which
could then have been done at smali cost,
and. thus saved from lloating away. But
tljt Court paid no attention to the recoiii
inond.t'.ions ol he Supervisor, and our
jjeople are now compelled to travel by
one or the other of Ben. llo! laj'ay's. lines
until another bridge is erected at i;iiivh
expense to the county and lorn; and ve.y:i
Jious delay. All this could have, boon
j..ived by in outlay of not more than S4Ud
or $."(H). if our Commissioners had heeded
the advice of the Supervisor, and have
bad the interests of the county at lieijrt
me re than the thought of how best to pro
mote the interest of party managers. We
are informed that other putties, be
sides the Supervisor, C tiled the attention
; the Court to this master, but all warn
ing went unheeded. If what we hive
been informed i correct, there has been a
criminal negligence on the part of the
County Court, and we call upqn the uext
frand Jury to investigate tho subject lor
the benefit of an injured people. This
was the most important bridge in the
pounty. and i'S loss cannot be replaced
diort of ? 4.000 or $5,000. Such action
should not go pnrebuked. and if there is
Uliy nay to punish the recreant members
of "the Court it should be done. We shall
-efer to this subject again.
llniu Watki;.--Oii Sunday last a heavy
flood bursted over the Willamette Valley,
and rain and hail fell in such torrents as
w.i perhaps never witnessed before in Ore
gon. Prior to this, the streams were con
siderably swollen from heavy rains,
which w hen this torrent fell, caused them
o suddenly overflow lliejr banks, doing
pqiisiderable damage to roads and bridg
es. The rai'.road line between this arid
Salem was interrupted at the Bridge
aero the Swuiatn. and several culverts
and MU.ill bridges along ti;e route were
more or less damaged. Out interior
mails were stopped lor a day or two, and
communication more or less cut off in all
uirvctiotfs for a short time. I Jut the waters
nre now receediug; the cars are rgiin
running all right and everything still re
tinues lovely, except the damage done
to this county in the loss ot two import
ant bridges, accounts of which we give
elsesvljere. We have heard of no serious
loijsos it; any other part of the valley, and
no fears are entertained of another' fctich
flood this season.
I)K.vn. Homer Smith well known
throughout this St ite and California, died
recently at the residence of his lather in
law la LaiiH county. Abiptst as far back
nt we can remember, we saw Homer seat

California. He came to Oregon shortly af
ter the O. A" C. Stage Company put on their
coaches, and fur a number of years drove
from Eugene to Oakland. In l(J3 he leas
ed the St Charles Hotel at Eugene and
jsept the best hotel that IvjS ever been in
Jhat place, lie. subsequently, removed to
Corvallis, and there he kept ttie City Ho
tel, and about three years after, he moved
to Salem where he kept the Capital Hotel.
After retiring from this, he again mounted
the stuge box, but was soon, compelled
to discontinue ou account of filling
health, and has been suffering from the ef
fect of his early exposures for the past,
two or three years. Mr. Smith was a gen
erous hearted man. a good neighbor and
true friend, and many a traveler will kind

Lkcti kk. Hon J. F. Caples. of Port

at the Methodist church, on Wednesday
evening last. His subject The Battle
.f Life.' There was a very fair audience
in attendance. Mr. Caples hc.s frequently
talked to our citizens, and is well received.
He always has something interesting and
instructive to say. In his last lecture he
talked more particularly to the young
pien, of the difficulties lo be ovt rjoiue.
and the stimilus they give in the struggle
for position and honor. He regarded that
life as not worth living that had not some
useful end in riew. .Mr. Caples is an earn
est and effective speaker, and capable of
d.cing much good, outside of the direct
Ij le of Ids profession.
Tiik Boats. Tbe bouts ctt the upper
river have all been laid up in consequence
pf the high water during the past week.
The Cooke is tbe only boat running be
tween here and Portland at present. She
brings up the passengers to this place,
which is the present terminous of the rail
road, the water being over the track on
the. Clackamas bottom about five or six
feet. The Cooke leaves Portland at 12 m.
and returns at 2k p. m,. This arrangement
will continue until the waters recede sufS
cient to repair the track.
Cacse of Delay. The editor having
taken sick on Tuesday last, and being
confined to his room ever since, will ac

Died. Lawrence Iiuriis.and old resident
of this county, living opposite town, died
at his. resilience last Sun.Iav.
The Sacramento correspondent of the
Mariposa Gizelf? (probably ox-Senator
Jim Lawrence himself its publisher),
writes to that paper some highly-flavored
sketches about penurious members of the
Assembly. We copy the following:
The save-il all assemblyman hires a
cheap room in a cheap quarter of the city
at a rental per mon'h of $7. He buys a
gallon of cheap whiskey for $2. this laj-ts
him a month. For food, he purchases
five cents worth cf crackers, five ceuts
worth of cheese and a like amount of pea
nuts each day. and boards himself, except
when he occasionally takes a square meal
at the free lunch table. His board, there
fore amounts to 4 per month, He is
his own barber. booMdack and washer
woman, consequently he is out nothing on
this score. Here. then, we have, :is his
expenses for the month. $13 o'J ! Grand
total for the session the munificent sum
()t Jlf1!"1"' o'. ;'-.; His per diem, if the
Legislature sits for the full time allowed
by law. amounts to $1,200. Hence he
will go home with exactly $1,110. and
within four years come out, as a candidate
fur some Stare office on anti-subsidy pi it
form Four of them have struck
ap excellent ih'tig in the matter of beer,
and are actually sacrificing their money
and health in worship of old Gambrmus.
Tt.ey have found a shop where lager is
sold at ten cents per bottle, and each day,
after adjournment, they wend their way
hjiher. draw straws to see who will treat,
and then and there the quartette drink
their bottle of beer. The bottles contain
four moderate, drinks, thus making the
price ot each drink two and a halt cents.
Satmdays, when they go to
the Treasury to receive their week's s'i
pend, a number of them are in the habit
of addressing the clerk, when he hands
out the coin, in tliis fashion: Wa a l. Mis
ter C'eik. can't 3o'.i give us a dollar's
worth of dunes? We're goia' on a leetle
bit of spree and want a leetle change."
After getting the ten dimes the)' go out
on the railroad: la' ihetu on the truck
when the train is coming, have them fi if
tened out and play them off f r smooth
quarters? This, if not statesmanship, is
native talent extraordinary.
am not going to say anything about a
number of lower county Assemblymen
procuring a wagon upon their arrival
here, driving to the Capitol with their
trunks and demanding to bo shown to
their sleeping rooms.

port of the examination of J. P. Lindsay,

tom house frauds in New York.
Q. You speak of Mr. Leet's receiving
some So.O'Ji) per annum from the general
order business? A. Yes. sir.
Q. Was that in the way of a salary, or
as the result of a business? A. As the re
sult of a business.
Q. Did he give tiny personal attention
to that business? A. JYyf any d nil.
Q. It it was done as a business was it
done by his agentr-? A Done by his part
ners. I should judge, by arrangemen1; Mr.
JJixby was a partner of his. bccjune lliy
du hb:d Ihe Of'jrpht.-i.
Q. Did he devote any of the time which
he was under obligation as an ollicer of
the Government to use in Ihe service
of the Government to this general ord-T
business? A. No, sir; only going often to
Senator Pratt Q Did Colonel Lect put
any capital In this business? A. Solido.'
ltr. O. Did he render any personal service
tq the warehouses. A. Not that I ever
knew of. sir.
A Western lawyer called our attention
to this and s.iys that he may be mistaken,
but ho thinks the law of partnership must
be different in New York from what it is
in Illinois. He says in Illinois men are
not partners -'ec jue (hey did Is the oucr
plin.'' Lect put in capital "not a dollar;'' at
tention to business "not. tiny at all;"' and
dre-.7 out. in any event, more than half
the proceeds of the business. He got $".
G2". whether thev made $10,000 or not:
and. after the first $10,000. one half ex
actly. In any case, therefore, he would
have. $t;2." the best of the bargain.
Our western friend thinks he could
find plenty of men who would take Leet's
place in the firm, but doubts whether the
other members couid find substitutes in
his country at all. He thinks that in a
Western court some such question as
-What, di Col. Leet do to entitle, him to
one half or more (han one-half of the pro
ceeds of this business?' would certainly
have followed what we have quotod. And
it was suggested that it might be for his
influence with Grant, and consequently,
also, with Grinuell. the young "limb"' put
on the indignant.
IxniCTED. A dispatch from Galveston,
Texas, reports that the U. S. Gtand Jury,
at Austin, hid returned indictmen's
against the Goveror and Secretary of
State for '-irregularities" in the late elec
tion. The dispatch draws it mild in de
noiuinatinsr the outrag; s committed l7
those worthies, '-irregularities.1' They dis
franchised whole counties in order to be
able to make out tbe election of the Rad
ical members of Congress: one of whom,
happening to be an honorable man, refus
ed to accept a certificate of election from
the Governor, because it was a notorious
fact that his Democratic competitor had
beaten him by a large majority.
There is a good deal of excitment in
the Third Auditor's Office concerning the
squabble between General Rutherford and
some of his clerks, growing out of the
very recent exposures of the manner in
which business is transacted th"re. Alto
gether the showing made by General
Rutherford is much the more honorable
than that of other people charged with
indebtedness to. tbe Government, fox Ruth
erford has paid up like a man. while
Grant is still b.chind in the sum of $4,441
and interest for twenty-three years. We
call upon the President to follow the ex
ample set by General Rutherford. When
the President pays we shall look for some
response to our appeal in behalf of the
Govern men t to Mr. S. P. Brown. Vhen
these gentlemen have settled up. we may
make a public list of other defaulters
whose names are somewhat noted, and
whose little defalcations ought to be

D'sease3 that progress rapidly to a crisD
are not ihe only ones to be dreaded. Canker
or dry rot does not blast a tree as suddenly
as a stroke of lightning, hut unbss arrested
it destroys it as certainly ; and in like man
ner chronic debility, although it does not
kill with the swiftness of yellow fever, is as
sure to sap thespiings of Ufe eventually as
any acute disease, if not checked by invigor
ating medication. There is something inex
pressibly touching in the spectacle prema
ture decay. Languor, pallor, emanciation,
depression of spirits, and a distaste for ex
ertion, are its ordinary symptoms, and they
should be. promptly met by a tonic treatment.
The best invigorant and exhilorant that can
be administered in a case of this kind is
Ho-tettei's Stomach Bitters. The stimulat
ing principle (u the preparation rouse the
dot-mat energies of the system ami the
strengthening and regulating properties give
a permanent and healthful impulse to the
vital forces thus brought into pl.iT. The
fading appetite is re-awaker.ed, the proce-s
of digestion and assaaiilation are quickened,
the quality of tiie ldood is improved, the se
cretions become more natural, and every or
gan that contributes to the nourisbmeut of
the body undergoes salutary change. By
these means the repair of the physical struct
ure is effected and its health and vigor re
stored. In no classcfdisea.es has the ben
eficent operation of the Bitters been more
marked and striking thin in those charac
terized by general debility and nervous pr s
tration. Ladies affected with these ail
ments find in this most wholesome of all
tonics and correctnse-s the safest and surest
means of relief. It is strong to restore and
powerless to injure. Such is the uniform
