The Scientific American to hand
lias the follewing: The new iron
steamship, Walla Walla, the seventh
vessel built by John Roach & Sons
for the Oregon Navigation and Im
provement company, is now taking in
cars and railroad material for the
company, preparatory to her voyage
to Oregon. The Walla Walla is 330
feet in length, 40i feet beam, 23i feet
depth of hold, and five thousand tons
displacement when loauen. cne is
constructed wholly of iron, with
water-tight compartments, with one
complete iron deck, and the second
deck was three-fourths iron. As she
is constructed for tho purpose of car
rying coal between Seattle, Puget
Sound, and San Francisco, and will
probably return without cargo, she is
fitted with three water-ballast tanks
to retain the center of gravity on a
line with the keel, when the vessel is
discharged of cargo. All the deck
houses are built of iron, and a hand
somely furnished cabin and staterooms
aft afford accommodations for thirty
first-class passengers. The vessel is
fitted with compound engines of 2,000
estimated horse power, and has six
cylindrical boilers, and her estimated
speed when fully laden is twelve
knots an hour. She is schooner rig
ged, with a square sail forward, and
upon her arrival at San Francisco will
take her place on the regular route
with the two other colliers recently
built the Willamette and the Umatilla.
I'nrnlHlicil JJooms to JLet
On Saturday evening, according to
appointment, Dr. Watts, of Oregon
City, delivered an address in the Con
gregational church on ' Temperance."
The speaker opened by saying that ho
would dispense with his intended lec
ture and givo them a little talk.
Pointing to the motto above the pul
pit, "Peace on earth, good will to
men," he said that was the true prin
ciple and object of temperance.
Church spires point to heaven. Had
opposite institutions spires they would
point tho other wav. A preacher in
Albany said a man must drink to get
to heaven. Let all anti-temperance
churches preach the Albany man's
doctrine, aud thev would soon die.
The speaker went on to illustrate sev
eral examples calculated toconvincehis
audience of the paralyzing effect of
alcohol. He claimed that there should
be prohibitory law, and thought that
what has been done in Kansas could
be dono elsewhere. He said that tho
State Temperance association had ap
pointed him as thoir lecturer to can
vass the state, and he challenged uny
ten anti-temperance orators to debate
with him on that question. At the
close of his remarks the Dr. handed
round several petitions for signatures,
and asked for a show of sentiment
which was responded to.
On board the Derbyshire at 2:30 p.
M., Sunday, the Doctor, at the re
quest of the chaplain, Rev. J. Mc
Cormac, delivered a temperance ad
dress to a largo audience composed to
a great extent of seamen.

A pleasing incident of the Open
Temperance meeting on Saturday
evening at Portland, says the Orego-
nian, was the recitation or rather
series of recitations of Ida May Conn
of Astoria, a little tot only six years
old. Of course when such a dimini
tive figure appeared upon the stage
she became at once the center of at
traction, and no one expected more
than the usual attempt, but she
bravely met the gaze of the large au
dience and gracefully recited a long
temperance poem, and was rewarded
with a round of applause, to which
she responded with another which
met with a like reception.
