And the said main line betwfeen sa'd points shall be constructed on the south side of the Columbia river, unless within the time herein limited for the con struction and completion thereof some other company shall construct or be prosecuting the construction of a rail road of standard gauge on the south side of the Columbia river from Port land to Wallula, in which case the said Northern Pacific Railroad Compa ny may construct its main line on the north or south, or partly on the north and partly on the south side of the Columbia river: Prsvided that the pur chase or acquisition by the said North ern Pacific Railroad Company of any railroad or part of any railroad of standard gauge now, or that may here after be, constructed ou the lino of its road-from Wallula to Portland, so that the same shall be available as part thereof, shall lie deemed a compliance with the provisions of this act and of its char'.tr, and the joint resolutions of congress amendatory thereof and sup plementary thereto, in like manner and effect, ami to all intents and purposes, as if such purchased or acquired rail road had been constructed by it.

For ingenuity of all kinds the Yan kee race has been so characteristic that it is synonymous with the term of in vention. A rtew Englander and a novelty generally go hand in hand, and if there was ever any doubt as to the genuineness of this popular belief, or any dispute as to the varied style of their notions, it should be dispelled by the remarkable self guillotining, on Tuesday last, of Stephen Pillsbury of Chelsea Masschusetts. The suicide was a young man scarce ly thirty years of ago, of most excel lent character, a great student, a fine temperance advocate, but morbid on iho subject of crime and criminals. Fine looking, and of good social and cheerful disposition, his act is the more rémarkaple, especially as he was an unmarried man. Yet, on the day and data assigned, his head was lying loose alongside of his body, and his life-blood had welled out, and all bv his own handiwork. He had builded him in the farm barn a rude but perfectly-working ma chine of death, on the style of the French guillotine. Two uprights of joists twelve feet in length he had set from the floor to the ceiling. The up iper ends were spiked to the ceiling; the lower mortised in solid blocks of wood about four feet long, and in the center of which he had Scooped out a neck rest. Fitting between the up rights in a smoothly-sliding board was a carpenter's broad-axe sharpened to a razor-like condition. This slider rested on a lover, which worked upon a pin secured in the left upright, from .the end of which, suspended by a cord some three feet in length, was a water pipe which had I teen tiled with water. The bottom of this pot th* suicide had perforated so that the water would gradually leak out and release the lover, and the ax would drop. The fall of the ax was nearly seven feet; but, to make things dead sure, Pills bury had placed on top of the slide box of stones about fifty pounds in weight. To prevent any charge of suicidal iutent, he had at the base of the up rights inserted a piece of broom-handle running through both joists and com pletely imprisoning his neck. By his side, on the block, he had dug out hollow, in which he had poured about a pint of ether. Having finally per fected arrangements by placing two large boxes of stone close against the sides of the murderous machine, quiet ly smoked a cigar, filled the watering pot, placed his head in position, with his nostrils close to the ether fumes, and, as the water leaked away, the lever was sprung, tho slider started, and the thud of the ax announced de capitation. Being a temperance talker, it was I hut consistent and proper that he should die by water. A religion tliat wont spread over uvro than one day a week is not worth bu: I li.:g oi.-etiu;; li.msj for. Kirkwood's Remarks. Senator Kirkwood, who generally wean a suit of clothes which could be bought new for twenty dollars, and would not fetch at a second hand store more than one-fourth that sum, gave expression to some advanced sumptary views in the Senate a day or two since.' In answer to the Objections of other Senators that the revenue was not sufficient to justify the addition to the pension list of soouts and other attaches, he urged that if necessary the tax schedule could easily be ex tended sufficiently to justify it. Whis ky, tobacco and beer he said now paid more than the interest on the National debt, and for his part he was willing in order to obtain the means to reward faithful scouts, to add to the tax list swallow tailed or claw-hammer coats, stove pipe hats, tho Senator declared were an abomination and a monstrosity. Senator Blaine, who always sports'a glossy one, turned uneasily in. his seat as the Iowa Rnsticus made this start ling announcement, and the venerable Hanibal Hamlin who wears a plug het which he bought when peace was de clared with Mexico, was so agitated that he was forced to retreat to the cloak room. Outrageons Murder. a a a Louisville, May 9.— The Courier Journal's Hopkinsville correspondent telegraphs that last evening a negro committed rapo near Fair view, Todd county, upon Mrs. Geo. Salmon, who had been married about eighteen months. Her husband left her in the morning to assist in moving a mill, and told her that she had better go visit ing. She started, and had gone some distance from home when a negro plowing in a field near by struck her with a stick and left her, doubtless thinking she was dead. He soon re turned, and finding that she had some what recovered and had endeavored to reach home he followed her and cut her throat. She is now dead. The negro was arrested and parties started to take him to Elkton to put him iu .1*0, but it is said that he was taken from the guard, shot several times and left hanging to a tree. Tbs OH Well Eire. Bradford Pa., May 7.—The fire which caught from an overflowing oil well here yesterday burned all night Red city, a village 10 miles from Bradford, comprising abont 100 houses is entirely burned, not one building remaining.

Elmira, May 7.—This morning, while McKelvey, chief keeper of the reformatory, was endeavoring to punish an insubordinate convict named Ed.
