The Standard tells of a victim of

The Jacksonville Times says that
if southern Oregon had been blessed
with an abundance of rain this season,
incalculable benefits would have resul
ted. The minors were prepared to
take out hundreds of thousands of
dollars, a considerable portion ot
which would have found its way into
! circulation. The scarcity of water
will prove a serious injury to the best
interests of that -section.
The Walla Walla Statesman
speaks in high terms of the stage
drivers in Uncle Jake Miller's employ,
and say: "Billy Glover, Uarry Abbott,
! Butlor, Parker and Thomas all deserve
high commendation for their attention
to their duties." The Columbia'Chron
iclc adds that they have done what
few men could, and the people cannot
give Iheni too much praise; but that
Uncle Jake has also done everything
that could be done to insure regularity.
If you won hi have a law-abiding
people, says the Salem Statesman, you
must enforce the law b3T legal proceed
ing, but when every principle of jus
tice is violated through legal technicah
tis, you may ieasonably expect an
indignant populace to take the ad
ministration of law into their own
hands. The way to cultivate vigilant
committees is to trifle with the forms
of law. Sharp practices may bring
immediate success, but the ends will
be disastrous. A reputation for cun
ning brings not honor, neither is it
profitable in the end.
A Weston correspondent sa3's:
"Xext to the railroad excitement is
that caused by Hayes' veto on the re
striction bill. All our X)oliticians, ir
respective of party, denounce him in
unmeasured terms. This is the pecu
liar prerogative of a free people; but
should not be forgotten that the rea
sons given for his course of conduct
and which are unhesitatingly pro
nounced as ilimsy and weak, are by
some able .men considered as cogent
and constitutional; and -that mistaken
as he may 'be, the one who legally
holds the highest honor in the gi of
this govercment is entitled to respect
ful language, from those at least who
put him there. Vituperative abuse
jjiCYer accomplishes any great reform.

We are pleased to learn, from the
Intelligencer, that Yesler's hall, Se
attle, was crowded to its utmost capac
ity on the occasion of the rendition of
t fi i venile operas by Mrs. A. M.
Snyder's musical class. Everything
passed off pleasantly, and the enter
tainment was a perfect success. The
little ones acquitted themselves ad

The Boseburg and Coos bay rail
road company, a newly organized cor
poration, has purchased the franchise
of the Rosebui-g and Port Orford rail
road company. The new compan3T
lms a capital of $500,000, and is com
posed of San Francisco, Bosoburg and
Coos capitalists. The fresh interest
manifested in the enterprise was
sinuikened by the probable passage of
a bill by congress appropriating 4,000
for the improvement of Coos bay har
bor. As soon as the bill passes tvork
will be commenced.
Have we a Blalock in this county
says the Columbia Chronicle, who will
build a flume from the mountains to
Dayton, for the purpose of floating
wood, lumber, etc? Wood sells in
Dayton at 5 per cord; hundreds of
cords can be sold every winter at that
price: it costs about $1 25 to 1 50
per cord to have it cut. It is worth
! to 5 per thousand to haul lumber
from the mills above town. There is
a large speculation in an enterprise of
this kind, and it will continue to grow
more valuable as wood and lumber is
being consumed very fast at the near
est point where it can be had.
Two disbelievers in the doc
trine of eternal punishment applied
for admission to "the Conrea-
3 CD
tional church in Henniker, N. H.
They were exemplary perjono and
desirable as members. The church
voted almost unanimously to admit
them, and to omit, on the occasion
of their reception, the word "ever
lasting" in readine: the confession
of faith. The pastor warmly de
fends the course taken, imt is cen
sured by many leading New Eng
land Conn-reirationclists.
An eminent French coach
maker says: "I never build two
carriages exactly alike, not because
I build each one as well as
I know how, but in building that
one I know how to make the next
one better. When I placed these
carriages of mine in the exposition
building, I thought them perfect,
but now that I have spent three
months looking over the carriages
di other builders, I see that they
are not so." Here is an illustra
tion of the value of these shows .to
intelligent tradesmen.
From a correspondence of the
San Francisco Bulletin we learn
that the state of many towns in
Nevada is in a deplorable con
dition. Many mining towns with
a population, a few years ago of
five or seven thousand, has been
reduced to less than that number
of hundreds. These towns were
built during mining excitements.
They built fine churches, public
buildings and residences, which to
day glare out in desertion before
the traveler. To make elabor
ate buildings, in a mining district,
has long sinceproven a poor policy,
and is sknply building "youriiouse
upon the sand." Rapid growth of
a town if it has a country to back
it is not detrimental. But Nevada
in her sanguine expectations has
Uparned a bitter lesson..
