Ratification. The Democracy of
this Tieinity, ia view ef the fact that
they had succeeded in electing their
ticket by such overwhelming (!) major
ities throughout the State, concluded to
"ratify" with a torchlight procession and
the usual etceteras, which conclusion they
carried into execution on Saturday night
last. The procession, as to numbers,
was not much to speak of, in truth rather
a slim affair a kind of hurly-fcurly,
Without order or shape, in which the
juveniles predominated and done the
yelling. The affair, such as it was, was
led by Chief Marshal, J udge Powers, and
the Albany Brass Band. Assistant Mar
ehal Arnold, mounted on a fiery steed,
done the duty assigned him bravely and
Well, lending' additional dignity to the
Boeoe by his serene presence. But the
big featured the occasion wad the trans
parencies, and although much ill-feeling
was engendered among Democrats by
some of them, yet as "picters" they
showed the hand of an artist. Tho one
representing Kev. Dr. mil as seated in
his buggy driving out of town on the
morning of the election to escape voting
the county Democratic ticket, although
entirely without foundation, yet looked
' plausible to those unacquainted with
the facts, that it excited no little com-,
ment. The gentleman who carried the
transparency got into a "little difficulty
during the evening with a fellow Demo
crat, which culminated in a knock down.
Suffice it to say that, the bitter feeling
aroused by these, to say the least, injudi
cious transparencies, among Democrats,
will not soon be forgiven or forgotten by
the gentlemen caricatured or their friends.
After the torchlight came the speaking.
An immense number of people, Borne of
them voters, had gathered on the Court
'House steps, where they were regaled
. with burning, red-hot, chain-lightning
eloquence from the bedrocker, Mr. Bur
nett, of Corvallis, and our own pets, Hon
Qo. R. Helm and A. C
Our newly elected County Judge, J. J.
"Whitney, Esq., refused to take part in
the meeting, as he would not thus coun
tenance the insults offered to prominent
life-long Democrats . by the caricatures
carried in the. procession.' Those who
did speak done excellently well (we have
it from Democrats who can be relied on
as knowing of what they assert) and were
greeted with considerable -'chin music"
The St. Charles hotel and the Court
House cupola were each brilliantly light
ed up in honor of the occasion. During
the-continuance of the meeting good
order prevailed, and Republicans mingled
with Democrats, enjoying the affair (es
pecially the transparencies and the huge
procession) with greater zest than Dem
ocrats themselves, some of whom had the
unqualified impudence to say that the
whole thing partook largely of the char
acter of a fizzle I The fact of the wholo
matter is, the Saturday night "blow out"
was as good a "card" as the 'Republicans
of Linn county want, and the more fre
quent they make them, the better they,
will please us. .

Campmeetino in Polk. From Mr,
TVra. MoFadden we learn that the Chris
tian campmeeting now in progress on the
Rick real, - under the charge of Revs
Harris and Campbell, is meeting with the
largest success. A large number had
already experienced a change of heart
and been added to the church. On last
Sabbath it is thought there were not less
than five thousand persons on the oamp
ground. - The meeting will continue over
Severe AccipENT. Wed nesday af
ternoon a young man named Thomas
Daniels, in the employ of Messrs. Beach
& Monteith, fell from their wharf to the
deck of one of the P. T. Co.'s steamers, a
distance of fourteen feet, and was severely
hurt. ... He was helpine to load the boat
with sacks of oats, when the pile of sacks
suddenly slid from their position and
knocked him from the wharf on to the
boat, and, we believe, one of the sacks
fell upon him. He fell on his side on the
gunwale, and it was feared that he had
received severe internal injuries. His
physician, however, pronounces him out
of danger this morning, and that he will
be all right again in a few weeks.

Another Church. From Dr. Geary
we learn that a lot, on the corner of Fifth

and that early efforts will be made to se

church, to be owned and controlled by
the Presbyterians. Success to all such
