Mr. Fkldc Fralky, of this place,
produced this jcar, from ono-twontieth
of an ., acrp of ground, ,160 gallons of
nine. At this, rata 3,200 gallons can
he made from' an acre. Mr., F. readily
disposes of his produqtby tho,barrcl at
S3 per gallon1. SoMV'will bo seen that
one acre of grapci made into wine will

four year's to bring the vines up to this
bearing standard, and a partial crop
may be counted on for the third year.
Our readers can judge whether grape
culture in this county pays.
A FIRE. .
On last Friday night, about 12
o.'clock, a fire was discovered in tho
Hardware store of Mr. Cummins, which
is on the ground floor of the Masonic
Hall building of, this place. The doors
were locked and no one was in the
building at the time. After giving the
alarm, the doors were forced open and
Uhe fire found to be in the floor near the
stove, and in the cellar. By the timely
cooperation of a largo number of the
citizens, the fire was soon extinguished,
and the building saved from ruin.
The'firo originated from ashes placed
in a wooden box and left on the floor,
the fire in the ashes burning through the
bottom of the box, thenco through the
floor and dropping on some hay, which
was thrown over a heap of potatoes and
tipples in the cellar.
Tho Dramatic Olub, which holds its
meetings in the building, had adjourn
ed buta few. minutes beforo the alarm
was given, and it 'was by two of tho
young gentlemen members of' tho soci
ety, Messrs. H. Shutts and J. Wjuit
mbr, that the discovery' was first made.
' But for this circumstance, the whole
building, including tho hardware storo,
'T,tHe toy goods store of Collins & Mc
Koy, with largo warehouses and cellars,
two law offices, tho Masonic and Odd
Fellow's Halls, and perhaps the entire
rowof buildings, including tho Senti
nel printing establishment, would doubt
less have been destroyed,
i It is hopod that our citizens will prof-
. fit by this gentle warning. It came near
being a terrible visitation. The destroy
ing eloment advanced only far enough
to show us the destruction which lurked
behind. TWe have been a peculiarly for-
- -tunate community in escaping thus far,
yet "cannot be said that our good .for
tune is the reward of, prudenco nor of
.'.vigilance. We have exercised neither.
n What can be said of the practice of tak
ing up ashes in a wooden box, which is
a. Common, thing in many' of the houses
, of town f nothing could be more re-
preupuBiuio. jmoc omy your own mo
and property, but that of your .neigh
bor is jeopardized. There are two
wooden rows of buildings fronting On
.the public square when one firebreaks
out in each, they will be destroyed. It
, may bo unpleasant to think about, but
it is true,! nevertheless, and tbeir de
struction is only a question of timo! Is
it not then worth while to exercise the
Utmost', precaution ? The oity ordinances
provide -for' the appointment of a Fire
ITT- J lf"i' J.. !l l.ll '
"Warden, 'whose' duty it shall bo to in'
apect flues, ohimneys, and stove fixtures.
Whether such an official has been ap
pointifle ire not prepared to.say,, and
i if such) inspaotion has been made, we
, aVe'ignornt of't fact., Lot measures
for safety be instituted .at once. It may
be that the' day of these' mild premoni
tions is past, 1

HOW TO DO AT A Fine
From our observations and experience
at the late ftro in this place, wo are en
ttblsd'to'complle tho following rules to
be observed by citiiens in such cases :
1st. If tho firo is in tho night, timo,
bora by the alarm, do not bo in any
haste to got up,-a8 itmay bo a dream
or falso alarm .they may get a jokd on
you., - r
2. If you do got out of bod, do
not bo too hasty .in 'drofising ; attend to
all the littlo details, such as putting on
your paper collar and tying your cravat
with, tho, utmost care.
8. When you go b'lU of doors loave
tho door ajar, as you may wish to re
turn in a pw, minutes., Ask, the first
person y'oui meet where the fire is, and
if you find it is too far off to endanger
your own building,, you, can icxorciso
your pleasure about going any further.
If you go -you may looso half a night's"
sleep and tako cold.
4. If you decido to go, don't hurry
over exertion in vtho "night pir' is in
jurious. Stop every person you see
and ask if they've put tho firo out yet.
Don't cry "firo," for by opening your
mouth Uio'"rilgh't air" will rush in and
givo you a cold.
5. Whon you arrivo at the sccno of
tho calamitous circumstance, be caroful
not to rush into tho crowd, as you may
get run over or pushed into business.
6. Don't Vonturo into' the building,
as the dense smoke is very injurious to
the eyes, and there is danger of getting
a bucket of water thrown on you.
7. If they, propose to form a lino for
convoying water, don't think of assist
ing, unless you huvo your gloves with
you ; it is host to affect that you don't
know you are needed, by going to an
other part of the building.
8. If you are a merchant, and find
your own premises not immediately en
dangered, but that the loBer is a rival
dealer, you had better not let your
presence bo known, as you may be asked
to turn out a few buckets for tho occa
sion. It would iniuro tho sale of the
9. If you oro of a philosophical turn
of mind and wish to observe the process
by whichwater is resolved 'into its sim
ple elements and becomes fuel for tho
flames, borrow for this purposo a buck
et, already rilled with water, and throw
on the fire ; to do this without dancer
don't get nearer than sixty feet from
the firo. If you can find a window or
door where no smoke or caloric issues
forth, it will answer your purposo. Don't
throw too much water on the flames at
onco, or your experiment will bo spoil
10. If you ohsorvo that any ono tries'
to givo advice as to the best moan3 of
extinguishing the firo and saving prop
erty, depend on it he is trying to run tho
machine ; be sure to disagree with him,
give advjee to the contrary, and that at
the top of 'your voice. Tho rulo of all
talking at onco is a good ono at fires.
By this means fires have ofton been
11. If, you neglected to tako your
well bucket and rope off, hurry hack
and attend to this at once, and put thorn
in a safo place, or they may be stolon..
12. To prevent sickness, stop at a
aloon as you return and tako a littlo
gin (alcohol and turpontine) and sugar,
or strichnine whisky.
18. ,If the fire 4s 1 at a private resi
dence, and you should so farforgot your-.
self as to assist in removing tho 'things,"
you will find it right convenient to throw.
many of tho articles out of the window.
It expedites matters. If you see any
14. Grown up boys will find it rare
sport to run over town alarming the
"women folks." They'll bo anxious to
know about tho firo, and may possible
run out of doors en dishabille.
15. Rule third should bo especially
observed by clerks of stores, particular
ly the first douse.
16. Whatever you do, don't got your
self y wet, 0r.vy.9ur fingeja burned; ;To
avoid this it .is often advisable to re
main in bed, and if thoy attempt to cot
you-out, pretend you think it's burglars,

The'proceedinga of the Board of Ooun
cilraen appear in this issuo. Thero are
sorao things in them which wo think de
servo tho especial notice of the citizens
of Oregon. To our mind, it is a ques
tion whether tho Board has not vastly
transcended its powers. Wo refer to
tho matter of tho contract with Mr.
Swan for constructing strcot crossings.
Tho contract is annulled by tho city, on
account, of tho failuro of tho contractor
'to complete, the crossings,! which is
doubtless proper enough. However, the
Council is not satisfied with this, but
proceeds to go back of tho contract for
tho crossings, and overhauls Mr. S.'s
individual business. Wo understand
that besides tho proceedings published
the privato contracts of Mr. S. with va
rious individuals, for rock, hauling, la
bor, &c, wcro taken under advisement
and canvdssod. Tho material which he
had on hands was invoiced and turned
over to another individual without his
knowlodgo or consont, and in fact a
seeming general administrative chargo
takon of his ostato. Mr. S. may per
haps liavo been indebted on somo of his
contracts, and this signifies, from the
precedent about to bo established, that
whatever effects ho may havo can bo
seized upon, and that without any legal
proceedings whatovor. Is thcro a shad
ow of authority for it? Wo contend
for a right rather than an individual in
this cafce. If tho property of uny person
indebted to tho city is liablo to seizure
in this way, the commmunity ought to
know it. If a poor man has any rights,
which a corporation is bound to respect,
it should also bo made known.
