IIaix. Perhaps our readers are not
aware that it has been raining unceas
ingly for the last two days and nights;
those outside of Oregon are not at anv
rate. From appearances the rainy sea
son has set in in earnest. From our
California exchanges we b arn it has
been raining verv hard in that
Slate, and that another Hood is feareij.
They all predict a hard winter. The
only serious damage the rain in Ore
gon will cause, will be to injure grain
that is not yet in the grainarles which
is a very snu.ll proportion, and to stop
the horse rat ing at the State Fair this
week. It will be a good thing for
steamboats, ::s the water was very low.
Information Dksikko. We would
say to our correspondent from Kit win,
Kansas, that the market value f lands
vary in price, as they are improved or
unimproved. We bi lieve that from
S3 to HU) per acre for unimj roved, and
from flu lo per acre lor improved
lands owing to the location. The
prices of our farm products are about
as follows : wheat, 'JO (. ?1 per bushel ;
oat-:, -13 f, i3U cts; harley, $1 40(71 :i3 per

Mr. Alexander H. Stevens, of
Georgia said in a recent interview
that he had no doubt whatever that
a large portion of the leaders of the
present party in power have for years
been striving for the establishment
of principles which will if successful
in their efforts, inevitably lead to an
entire subversion of our whole frame
work of government. They are
striving for consolidation, which is
but another word for empire, the
end of which will be but despotism
in some form or other. But, said
Mr. Stephens, to prevent the accom
plishment of this object, their prin
ciples and measures must be assailed
before a liberty-loving people and
brought into reprobation and con
demnation at the polls, just as the
like measures and policy of like
leaders were assailed, exposed, and
condemned by the popular yote un
der the lead of Mr. Jefferson in 1800.
The leaders of the party now in pow
er can never be arrested in their
mischievous purposes by assailing
them upon false or incorrect issues.
The issue that the election of a Pres
ident for a third term is Caisarism
and dangerous to the country is just
such an issue. They may some of
them be relying on the popularity
of General Grant; but as long as he
violates no law the assaults of those
who would preserve the liberties of
this country should be aimed at the
authors of bad laws and wicked
measures; as well as the principles
and policies on which they are based;
and not against the officers, high or
low, who executed them. The sal
vation and preservation of the free
institutions of his country depends
upon the Democracy. This is their
high mission, and they will fulfill it
only ly strictly adhering to persist
ently maintaining the principles of
the Constitution, and not in the fol
lowing the lead of malcontent lie
publieans who have fallen out with

Natural lJei-aj Protect tke System.
The human body is a machiue, and
therefore cannot endure forever; but like a
watch or a sewing machine, it will last
much longer if properly regulated and du
ly repaired, than if no pains were taken
to keep it in order. The great object of
every one who desires a long and healthy
life should be to put his body in a condition
to resist the life threatening influences by
which we are all more or less surrounded ;
aud no invigorunt and corrective at pres
ent known so effective answers this pur
pose as the vitalizing elixir which, under
the unpretending name of Hoscttcr's Stom
ach Bitters, has been for more than twenty
years the standard tonic of America. In
crowded cities, whore the atmosphere is
contaminated with the effluvia inseparable
lrom large imputations; in marshy regions
where the soggy soil recks with miasma;
on the prairies and in the forests, where
every tall the air is tainted with exhala
tions from rotting weeds and grasses, or
decomposing leaves in short, iu every lo
cality where malaria exists, this powerful
vegetable antidote is urgently needed. Fe
ver and ague, bilious levers, dysentery,
congestion of the liver, jaundice, rheuma
tism, and all diseases wnicli are generated
by infected air, impure water, or sudden
ol temi-r.iture may be averted by s'rength
ening and regulaingthe sjstem in advance
with Ilostetter's Bitters. Autumn is al
ways a season of peril, especially to weak,
susceptible organizations. KventUe more
vigorous are apt lo be in some measure
depressed by the humid atmosphere, load
ed with deleterious gases produced by vege
table decay. The iall is a period of the
year when t he renovation and regulation
of the living machine is'ix-culiarty iin)ior
tanL ,and tin: Bitters should therefore be
taii'-n daily at this critical season.
I'arxoiix' 1'urtjative l'VIs will greatly re-
neve, ii not entirely cure, uisepsia when
everything else fails. They huve been
tried in some desperate cases, and having,
more relief than any other medicine.

Those using Pain-Killer should strictly
obs.-rvc the lollowiug directions :
At. the commencement of the disease,
take a teaspoouful of Pain-Killer, in sugar
and water, anil then bathe lreely across
the stomach and bowels with the Pain
Killer clear. Should t he dirrhea and cramp
continue, repeat the dose every fifteen min
utes, in this way t he dreadful scourge may
be checked and the patient relieved in the
course of a few hours.
N. B. Be sure and get the genuine article ;
and it is recommended by t nose who have
used the Pain-Killer for the cholera, that
iu extreme cases the patient take two (or
more) teaspoontuls instead of one.
