Scio News. The initial number of the Scio News reached us on Saturday. It is a four-column paper, H. H. King, editor, published every Thursday, at $1 50 per annum. We glean aa follows from its pages : The editor thinks a macadamized road should be built at once, irom Scio td in tersect the railroad at the nearest point and urges immediate action in the mat ter. The number of pupils attending school the present quarter, is given by the teach er, Mr. Carter, as 86 ; whole number en rolled, 91. ! ' , . '1 Messrs. Wheeler & Ostrander have packed nearly two hundred thousand pounds of pork this season. They had forwarded ten tons of a superior quality of bacon to San Francisco. Although large quantities of dried apples have been shipped' from Scio to Salem, there is quite a supply still en hand. Farmers are studying economy, and are saving the products of both farm and orchard. ; W. N. Snyder left Scio on Tuesday with five teams heavily freighted with butter, eggs, intended for the San Fran cisco market. The young folks of Scio were enjoying themselves over oyster suppers during the evenings, and their excess of spirits de stroyed the rest of the editor. Mr. Biyleu has quit boteling, and Mr. A. Brigss assumed control. The death of Volley Clisby, eldest son of John and Amanda E. Miller, aged 5 years, 1 month and 1 day, is chroni cled as transpiring on the 1st.

At last accounts he had failed to give bail in the required amount. Scan Mag.

The Oregon City Enterprise says it is confidently expected that work will be commenced on Holla day's road at Parrot's creek, about next Tuesday, the 15th inst., and that the twenty miles of road now constructed will be ballasted for business as rapidly as the weather will permit. Humbug and Rascal. The Port land Herald thinks Wood, of New York, or any other Democrat who advocates the payment of the national debt, is a humbug. Wood thinks the Herald, or atiy other Democrat who advocates repu diation of the national debt, is a rascal. Yet we continue to be told that Democ racy is the same everywhere. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. C.

SBlaalBr Wattl- Shop near the "Magnolia Mills." I ' ' :'' JOHN M. METZLEB i Albany, Nov. 38, 1808-19 - From Our Warm Springs Correspondent. Little Injun still exists, and now de scends from the mountains to the plain. As his winter's muckamuck is stored away, and his turn -turn good, he can now recline in enviable quietude, and watch the sportive antics of his clutchman as she carries in the nights'- wood, or he carries her shawl for her while she trudges along so happily, with three hundred pounds of flour on her back. ; Since my last letter the opening day of the new year has dawned on mankind, and with that" dawning has passed into oblivion's dark retreat, many a heart-ache, many a bitter Ttear lor tnisspent hours j hours that will perhaps cause remorse far years to eome.. To me it is. especially hard, as I cast my eye back through the dim vista of last year, and see the moun tainous pile of hopes forever wrecked the lost, loved and long to be remembered salt salmon and cammas. Well do I realize that the great pendulum of time never ceases to tick ; that thus days, minutes and years are being ticked away ; and that at tha final tick there must be a striking for either the Temperate or Torrid zone.. Thusly am I warned, and will commence anew to run on tick. 1869 is so more ; 1870 is upon us. To my tiUicums I cannot see in what the change has been an injury. They have grown older, perhaps, but not wiser. Time's variations affect them but little, as they know nothing about them, and the law forbids the use of hovr glasies. Thus are they denied some of the joyous times of the Bostons. While the liostons are passing New Years ia banqueting, dancing, hugum bussoming, tax-paying and turning up hour-glasses, we Indians are content with plenty of cammas and salmon, but never indulge in hugum-bussoming. We al ways observe the day. By the first glim mering of the morning sun our clutch men cuts the wood and gets breakfast ; combs her hair with her fingers, and greases it with salmon oil. She then has an of-fishal scent. Her toilet is finished by a red blanket and fifty pounds of beads, all of which make her look Mas losh ! We bucks dress ourselves in a striuk of beads, and are ready to accom pany our dearest Samantha Jane's. Our accing may be neither elegant nor en tertaining, but we enjoy it, and feel as happy as a big sunflower. The thrill of joy running through my heart, like a hog through a mudhole, when the maiden of the forest, for whom, only, my heart pul sates so quickly, casts that glance of ten der love from her dark almond eye full upon me, filled with, ah ! so much love, tenderness and dirt, makes me feel just like I wanted pap to see me. Then, when she reclines that uncombed head upon my manly bosom, my heart more rapidly pulsates at the thought of, the cussed tokens of remembrance which commence to crawl over vie. Now, Mr. Editor, I turn my hour glass bottom upwards for the success of the Albany Register through the present year. Xour paper is interesting, anu much thought of up here. So here s a turn of hour glasses to all the subscribers you have and all you're going to have. Little Injun. Oregon Railroads. Speaking of the bill granting lands in aid of the con struction of a railroad from Portland to Astoria and McMinnville, Oregon, the Portland Evening Call says that the peo ple have this enterprise in their own hands. "They must be a unit and true to themselves over mere party ties, and select a delegate to the Legislature who will return a Senator who is in sympathy with, and can influence legislation at Washington. For a Democratic property owner in Portland to vote a ticket that agreed with him on the tariff or State rights, in the present crisis, is about as sensible as to go to market and try to se lect a turkey for its singing qualities." - The Fumdimq: Bill.- The funding bill offered in the Senate on the 3rd inst,, is regarded by leading bankers as the most practical measure yet presented in Congress for the reconstruction of financ es. It is thought the bill will undoubt edly pass both houses substantially in its present form. Parties of : wealth and standing in the commercial circles : of Europe sand ready to guarantee a mar. ket for 8400,000,000 of the five per cent, bonds. .

From the number of candidates in the Democratic party looking for promotion to office at the coming State election, we expect to see a (lively time during the meeting of the Slate Democratic Convention in this city. The "boys" wing or branch of the party In Oiegon, have already put upon the sate as their candidate for Governor, Gror, of Salem ; Rev. Smith, of Salem, for U. S. Senate, and Geo. R. Helm, Esq.ypresent Clerk of Linn County, ft r Congress. , But another branch of the Democracy claims a show in the nomina tions. ' This section of Democracy, Ifd by the "three laboring lawyers" of Port land, will probably play a big hand in the Convention. One of the trio wants th8 nomination for Governor, and with the help of the wing which -they control, will doubtless make it warm for the "boys." , Another wing of the party will present the name of Mr. Bush, banker, of Salem, but it is thought that unless this wing "comes down" liberally with the cash, it will cut no figure with the bed-rockers. It is thought that the chances, at present, are with the "three laboring lawyers," for if they put their wing up to the "rule or ruin" game, a nomination to suit them must be made, or a Republican victory will ensue. This "rule or ruin' game has been played suc cessfully before, and may win again Altogether1 it is a very pretty muddle, and promises to make the Convention more than usually interesting.'; Aa the Repub lican party proposes to elect its entire State ticket in Jane, it only shows what great exertions men will make for a short- lived'notoriety. Gold Diggings in Indiana. -A re turned California miner, of eighteen years' experience, has discovered gold in Clark county, (Ind.), "about twenty miles from Terre Haute. The people of that section were seized with the wildest ex citemcnt, and were leaving other business to search for the precious metal.' Population. Gen. Salomon, the new Governor of Washington Territory, is reported en route with two hundred Germans whom he has induced to make the Territory their future home. He could not well bestow a more valuable gift than this on that thriving Territory Large Gathering of Indians. Reports from Fort Fetterman and Lara mie say that Indians to the number of 4,000 are concentrating on Powder river. They consist of Sioux, Chey ennes and Arappahoes, small parties of whom are scouring the country, stealing cattle. TnE New Govebnoh of Idaho. Dr. Saml. Bard, the late nominee for Governor of Idaho Terrhory, was lately editor and proprietor of the Atlanta Aeto Era. The present Governor goes out by limitation, his commission expiring next May. Mrs. Mc Murty charges that the Paw nees, on the 8th May, 1869, left their reservation and came into Polk County, Nebraska, where they murdered her husband, and she asks that the Indian Department retain $25,000, as damages, irom the appropriation to that tribe. Received. The Chinese treaty, with, the official seals of the Empire, were re ceived by Secretary Fish on the 14th inst. Fatal Accident. We learn from the Enterprise that Mr. Nelson Harring ton, who lived a few miles east of Oregon City, was killed by the accidental dis charge of a gun in the hands of his son. Deceased was in an old house with his son, engaged in shearing sheep ; they noticed a rat in the upper part of the building ; the boy got a gun to kill the rat ; in attempting to climb into the loft, the gun was discharged, the ball striking the father in the back part of the head, killing him instantly. ' '. Congressional. A bill has been in troduced into the House.empowering the Secretary of the Treasury to select in each county in the United States either a National Bank, Postmaster, Assessor or. Collector of Internal Revenue, to prepare all pension, papers free of cost to pensioners. Pensioners will be paid every three months instead of semi-an nually, as now. -:- ; v- ; Clerical Soandai.. The Philadel phia papers report a remarkable clerical scandal. The delinquent is a Catholic Priest, name qnknown, and the victim of hU wiles. Mias Louisa Dolan. .Rev. Mr. Harley, of the Second Reformed Church has received a letter from the young lady, in which she says she is confined in a cell of the Catholic Church, and is to ; be sent to a nunnery in Milwaukee, The "affair created intense excitement in the staid city. . .'-V .. .-; x Late dispatobes say that General Pue blo's defeat in Cuba was more decisive than . at first reported that he barely escaped utter annihilation on the battle field. A Husband Publicly Horsewhip ped. Recently a wife in Philadelphia publicly horsewhipped her husband on the street. It appears the wife has a stand in the market ; the husband is a butcher. He was in the habit of getting on a drunk occasionally, absenting him self from home until all his money was used up, then going to his wife's stand in the market and taking all of her money, and spending it in the same way. A short time ago, on the recurrence of one of these sprees, she went to the saloon where he was spending his money, and presenting a pistol, informed him that if he did not accompany her home she would shoot him. : He obeyed her. Soon after, however, be was at his old tricks again. , His wife s patience was entirely exhausted, and, getting a huge " black snake " whip, she again made her appearance at his rendezvous, and im mediately commenced using the whip over the shoulders of her husband with all the power of which she was master, and did not cease until exhausted by the exertion. He accompanied her home at her order, and it is thought , the lesson will be a salutary one to him. : ,V i - John B. Weller is practicing his pro fession in New Orleans. 1 . " a The JCing of Prussia recently visited a needle manufactory in bis kingdom, in or der to see what machinery combined with the human hand could produce, lie was shown : a number of superfine needles, thousands of which together would not weigh half an ounce, and marveled how such. minute objects could be pierced with an eye. . Bat he was to see that, ia this respeot even i something finer and more perfect could ; be .created. The borer-r-that js, the workman, whose busi ness it J -to bore the eyes in these nee dles asked for a hair from the mon arch's head. It was readily given, and with a smile.: He placed it at once under the boring : machine, - made a - hole in it with the greatest care, furnished it with a thread, and then handed the " singular needle to 'the astonisheoVking. Free Trade. The Portland Evening Call, speaking of the effect of free txade on the interests of Oregon, says : If at all inclined to animal cruelty, we should rejoice to see free trade estab lished, just to see the "boap Creek Con federacy" feel its effects. For the past seven or eight years a good deal of atten tion has been paid to wool growing in Oregon, and many dozens of the Simon Pure Democracy are heavily engaged in that product, and we should greatly enjoy the wry faces they would make at swal lowing this Democratic draught. Take the 100 or more per cent, tariff off, and let bouth American wool into our markets at from seven to ten cents per pound, and the Oregon wool-growers would gladly hand over their flock to the coyotes. Maaafaoturioc would stop, lands would recede in value, and wages would fall to a European or Asiatic basis, and immi gration would almost cease. There would only be one or two classes of investment that would flourish under that order of affairs, and 'that ' would "be transportation lines both by sea and land, as also ship- pers and importers. We would produce the raw material and send it off to where it would be i manufactured, and then transported back for our consumption. From transportation monopolies in Ore gon, the Long-Tomers hare rather a hard task at present ; but a dose of free trade would settle their case in a way that would work in the kill or cure style. i , The Irving correspondent of tb&ZdcA- fiete Monitor, gives the following illustra tion of the power of a true wife over a husband who had entered onithe ruinous career of a gambler : ! I stepped into our new saloon the other day to gather what news items the place might afford. " All were busy play ing cards, billiards, and tipping the social glass save partner and myself when all at once the door opened and a lady stood quietly looking in. It was a young wife who saw the man whom she loved as her life her husband on whom her happiness or misery depended a frequenter of a gambling hell ! On seeing her husband at a table playing, with her voice ladened with grief, morti fication, and love, she said, '- Husband, come home ! Come, dear, and go home with me !" The effect was electric Had Gabriel sounded his trumpet it could not have created much greater con sternation in the ranks of rum, than did those ' loving words, " husband come home !" The kind but astonished hus band went home with the best friend he has in this world his wife. . I shall al ways think better of him for it. His partner in tne game trembled witb excitement for he too had a wife and loved ones at home. Billiards and beer all at once lost their charm iov him He shook hands with the bar-keeper, and called the attention of the crowd to the fact that he had resolved never to play another game m that . grocery. As ne re tired, the saloon keeper implored him to come back, saying, " it you allow your self to be scared off in this way by these women, you will break me up." In my. imagination, 1 see the gentle opening of a door, and hear the modest wild as in mortifying grict she lovingly says: "Husband, come home! Come dear, and go home with me I ! 1 - The above item is no fiction, it is ac tually true, save the suppression of the names of the parties concerned. Cuban Affairs. The following par agrapn irom uoionei J)orney a paper, quite in contrast with those which he was in tne babit ol writing some weeks ago, undoubtedly expresses the view now taken by the administration, of affairs in Cuba. He says ' The Cubans persist ently and flauntingly violated the laws of the United States, and blunted the ar dent sympathy with which the loyal peo ple of the North regarded them. Instead of spending their means in the purchase of arms and ammunition, the carriage of which, under the American nag, Mr. Fish informed them would be protected on the high seas, the Cuban Junta, under the advice of rebel privateers and ex- confederate generals and other militarv or naval officers, publicly organized an illegal expeamon or armea men in JNew xark and fitted out illegal vessels from the ports of the United States, Instead of bending their energies to rendering prac tical assistance to the men who were fighting for their cause in Cuba, they spent tnem in vain ettort to sow dissen sion between General Grant and his cab inet, and to weaken the administration in Congress and before the people. Left thus alone, the armies of Cuba dwindled away : place after place was lost, until not a town was left to them, and the per ipatetio movements of Cesnedes, which, but for the bad management and bad faith of the Cuban managers and their friends, might have put itself in a condi tion to be recognized by; a government whose sympathies were with it, has not a shelter to cover it nor a place in which it can safely hold deliberation, and the end of the insurrection cannot long be deferred." ; A non-exnlosive lamp used with non explosive oil and capped with a patent non-explosive ourner, expioueu a Cleve land, Ohio, recently. A gentleman in the room suddenly noticed that the lamp seemed to enlarge" and he drew back a Rten or two, ? when the lamp exploded sending a hundred pieces of glass flying through the room. It was standing qn a bureau at the time, and , was properly trimmed and in good order, with all the non-explosives, yet it did explode.
