The Gazette speaks of John Stewart and wife, and their neice, Miss Jfahala Stewart, of Corval lis, who were restored to health by a few months sojourn at Finley's Soda Springs, on the Cascade Mountain Road which reminds us of an inci dent. About two months ago we vis ited these springs, where we met the Stewart family. Only a few weeks prior to the date of our visit Jiss Stewart had arrived there in almost a helpless condition, and we remember that during our stay at the Springs she accompanied a party of hunters (her father among the number) into the mountains. She was mounted upon a cayusepony, which she rode through the thick chapparel and up steep mountain trails with .the ease of the most expert equestrian ; remained in her sylvan retreat with the hunters over night, attended to the camp, cooked their meals and assisted in cur ing the venison, and came back to the Springs the next day with the flush of buoyant health upon her cheeks and a mirthful sparkle in her roguish eyes. Being a Benedict ourself, we daren't' go into extacies over the romantic ap pearance of the beautiful Amazon of the Cascades, but we do know that some of the young fellows encamped about the Springs showed unmistakable signs of hankering after the dear which her gothic steed brought into camp. The nerve, pluck and energy which our fair huntress displayed on that occasion would almost restore the ruined Pompeii to the grandeur of our modern Gotham. Lamp Explosion. Mr. Dow, of the firm of Dow & Crane, shoemakers, of this-city, had a narrow escape from furnishing the material for a first class funeral last Saturday night. He ob served that one of 'the suspended lamps in the store showed obstreper ous signs, and fearing it would explode j and damage or set fire to the house, he j seized it from its rest and started for the door, intending to cast it into the street, when it exploded in his hands with a terriSc noise, startling the peo ple of the neighborhood for several blocks and causing a general rush in the direction of the noise. Some ex tremely nervous individual, seeing the oil blazing on the floor at Jlr. Dow's feet, and fearing a fire, ran to ithe en gine house and rang the Cre bell, but before the engine was brought upon tha scene the blaze was extinguished and the scare over. The escape of Jr. D. was almost miraculous, as the oil flew all over his clothing; but his great presence of mind in wrapping his coat tightly about him, thus smothering the flames out, doubtless saved him j from a terriole death. Je came out of j the scrape with an unscathed hide but I with a couple of closely singed eye brows. Booth Killed. A telegraphic dis- j patch to the Portland papers, last Fri-1 day, announces the accidental death of Smith Booth, the gentleman who for several months last spring and sum mer was overseer of a gang of China mn at work on the railroad near this city. It appears from the dispatches that he was killed near Kalama by the cars running off the track, but in what particular manner is not stated. P. 8. Since writing the above, J. Z. Crouse of thi3 city has received a letter from Kalama which states that on last Friday evening Booth was riding in to that place on the locomotive tender, when the tender jumped off the track and rolled down a twelve-feet embank ment, throwing the unfortunate man tinder it and nearly cutting him in two. He only survived a few moments. Mr. Crouse informs us that Booth was a na tive of Connecticut, wa about forty years of age, and was a universal fa vorite among railroad men. Christmas Tree. The members of the M. E. Sabbath School wilt have a Christmas Tree at the Court TZbuse on Saturday evening, Dec. 23. AH per sons desiring to put presents on the Christmas Tree will please bring them properly labeled with the card having the name plainly written upon it and sewed on the article so it cannot lose off. It is desired that all presents be brought in previous to 12 o'clock, noon, so that the committee may have time enough to arrange them on the tree. A committee will be on hand to receive them from; 9 until 12 o'clock. Terrible Railroad Accident. Xast Saturday the gravel train ran off the track at JTarrisburg, by the dis placement of the switch, and several fiat cars loaded with gravel and upon which a gang of Chinamen were : riding, were turned over. Several of the Chinamen were hurled to the ground, and, the gravel falling upon : them, instantly killed two and fatally mounded two others who died on Mon day. Three or four others were badly hurt, but will probably recover. We . are indebted for this item to Capt. Rob ertson, of Cbrvallis, who came through Harrisburg last Tuesday. Time Changed. The cars have changed time, and the passenger trains -xlow arrive at this city as follows: Go ing south, at 6:12 p. m.; going north, .at 7:5 a. m. The northward bound ac commodation train arrives here at 8:5 a. m., and the southward bound train Arrives at 5 p. m. Religious. Rev. Mr. Lovell, of the M. E.

Umbrellas on the rise. 3lnce pies magnif, now. Our lamp posts are up and topers aro jubilant. Our new street lamps look gorgeous after night. Last summer's dust Is disappearing fast from our streets. Crouse has a pair of Guinea pigs' of the "Sooner" breed. A. N. Arnold has purchased Geo. Young's city delivery. A proposed masquerade ball is agitat ing our young people. "Fit you with a tin ear" Is the suc cessor to "put a head on you." Harper & Co. sold lots of Hhot-guna to aspiring Nlmrods last week. The Albany District School closed last Friday till after the Jolldays. Geo. F. Settlemier has added a stock of excellent cigars to his drug store. Mr. Lynn C. Doyle may bo seen for a while at R. ft Hill & Co's drugstore. Harrisburg light phantastics will have a grand Ball on Christmas night. Dr. Alexander, .Mart. Payne and others are oil in the mountains hunt ing. The Clarke-Watkinds slander suit has been changed from Marlon to Linn county. Thanks to O. B. Christie, Esq., our efficient Scio agent, for new sub scribers. Since the lamp explosion the other night the candle trade hereabouts is "looking up." There is no use in talking. Adver tising is the long pole that knocks the persimmons. The marshal, coroner, recorder and newspaper reporter are despondent this week, waiting in vain to be Jicawbcr- eil turned up. Chas. Roggers has retired from the Albany Brewery leaving Chas. Keifcr sole proprietor. An Iowa court has decided that a woman can sue her husband for money borrowed of her. Judge Burnett aud Capt. Ro'oertson, of Corvallis, paid us a pleasant call during the week. AVe observe that S. Montgomery is again at home, after several weeks' so journ at his mill in Douglas county. A female lecturer says the only de cent thing about Adam was a rib, aud that went to make something better. A Portland girl, trying to drink a glass of cider, swallowed a bran new set of teeth and nearly choked to death. Harvey Smith'is going to Missouri, in a few days, to bring out to this coun try a sister who has gone stone blind. An incorrigible bore at our elbow wants to know if W-o-r-c-e-s-t-e-r spells irboster, why R-o-c-h-e-s-t-e-r don't spell Rooster. A sick man was told that his wife would probably marry again. "All right," said he, "there will be one man to lament my death." A prominent journalist who Is per fectly bald, has offered a reward of one thousand dollars for & tale that will make his hair stand on end. Abe iackleman and Jno. GHliland killed sixteen deer near Mots' Butte last week. Deer are said to be very numerous up there at present. Six new buildings are now going up in Albany, consisting of a millinery store, grocery and bakery store, brew ery, and three elegant residences. It is said that a green tarlatan' dress contains arsenic enough to kill a man, and yet men do not seem to be afraid to go near green tarlatan dresses. What is the difference between the entrance to a barn and a loafer in a printing office ? One is a barn doorj and the other is a darn bore. Ain't it? More cider this time from Mr. 3cGhee, who has our best bow, which said bowing is no trouble when one is all doubled up with the stomach-ache. Charleston girls complain that the "boys don't tease them enough." Our office boys want to know what the fare is to Charleston they're "off for Charleston." ; Harvey Smith, ex-Sheriff of Linn county, gave us a call during the week. He is now an humble follower of the plow and tiller of the soil at Vernon, Jarion county. Fred. Hill had a little lamp "blow out" in the drug store the other day, by the burning of a gasoline lamp, but as it was not a real explosion it hardly arises to the dignity of a first-class item. , Beware of counterfeits In purchas ing Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Hair Re newer. The genuine has a private rev enue stamp, three inches long, with a likeness of Dr. Hall upon it over the cork. Some enterprising idiots are agitat ing the question of the right of men to clothe themselves In female garments. Petticoats are coming up, since the strong-minded have taken to panta loons. We began to write an article on the baneful influences of profane swearing this week, but on going homo and find ing our pet game rooster assassinated by an ornery boy we concluded not to publish the article. D. A. Lancaster, General Agent for the Equitable Life Insurance Co., is in town, ready to do business for that company. AH who are thinking of in suring will find it to their interest to see Mr. Lancaster as soon as possible. Three geese strayed or were stolen from W. E. Howell, last week, and If anybody will return them "inards, feathers and all" and pay for this ad vertisement, no impertinent questions will be asked. We believe they were webfooted and had an under-bit out of the left ear and a swallow fork in the right, and their age can be determined by looking at their teeth. Scio. A correspondent from Scio goes off in this strain over their late municipal election: On Monday our election came off. Early in the morning aspirants were buoyant and hopeful, but late in the evening, many of them could be seen wending their way homeward with haggard and careworn looks. The ad ministration this time is Democratic the returns from the several wards showing a large Democratic gain. You can Inform the world at large that the banner of Democracy waves once more triumphantly over the City of the Forks! S0I0 COESESPONDESrCE. Editor Democrats This modern Athens hss been, for ths past ton dayt, in a fearful state f agitation, oecaaiened by tba recent city leotloa and the Tarloui contest thereupon. The mat ter seems to presont Itself to a dltlntereted lis tener and spectator about in thta light: A clique of two or thro men, It would eem, of vest legal knowledge, and the most profound egotism, have heretofore held unlimited twsy orcr the manipulation! of tail eity government) and, until the taut election, have eueoeeded In awolng the populace Into an unequivocal ac quiescenoo to their regal sway. On Monday the 4th day of December, however, the people seemed to rouse front their irksome and unwar ranted thralldotn, and assert the high preroga tive of American freedom of choosing the u (floors who should administer their municipal affairs. Dut after the elooliou wu over, and the great Solon found themselves routed, "horse, foot, and dragoon," instead of acqul eslnjr to the majority, and admitting defeat, they iustituted contests for the Important oft) eea, and tried aud decided tliotn with a sem blauee if formality, yet without shadow of law, and thus disfranchised sovoral legal voters, one of whom has voted in Oregon since 1847. This was a poor old man who has never failed, since that time, to put into the ballot-box a truo-bluo Domoeratio vote, without question, but it wu reserved for the great Sanhedrim of the famous eity or the Fork to pronounoe biiu not a legal voter of the Slate of Oregon. It is perfectly astonishing to your correspondent that suoU profound erudition aud sueu remarkable talent as may be found eouoeulrated.in this little out-of-the-way bamlet, should for so loug a time have been permitted to "Blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air." But" blood will tell," and now the day is fast approaching when you may expect the wL. aorai of the obscure village in the Forks, to bo tne Srst aud ioremost men of the nation, and to whose superior judgment the supbistiual and antiquated ideas of Blackstone, Kent, Tauev, Illack, Deady and others will disappear like mist before the ris:og sun. We eau s i say we hail fr-m "The Fork" but proud will be that man Ij posteriiy who en trace his tiedl gree bark to tbo famous capital of the Forks of tbe f-unti.im. ben the names or ancient and modern times shall have passed away and been furg'-tten ; when Temple liar shall have be come the abode of owls and bats, tbe name of these para ;on of wisdom and luat lure wbo aie now the prrsiding genii of tbis eity will stand forth as monument nf perpetual graml cur. In that day the humblest of iu rilitens can stand up and sny with virtuous pride, "I came fiatn tbe t'nrtm." Tbe conte-ted election (" were betwsen T. J. Thorpe and T. 1. tioodraao. for the Mayor ship, in which U'oJmnn won, and was declared elected by one majority. The contest between Peter Smi h and lan.l Oaby was decided in favor of tbe latter. J. I.. Miller, who contested tbe election of R. O. Head, f.r lWord.-r, al though defeated iy 6 vot, was graoud tbe certificate, on the ground that Mr. Head was not a qualified voirr of tbe State, though be swore to a residence in Portland ever since I4tt3, until Octuter last, when be removed to Scio. Do not allow these things to sb-ek you. for I am assured that they are in aorordance with law, the restitution of tbe State to tbe contra ry notwithstanding. Jt were presumption to question the legality or this decition. These eminent judge hold another sitting to-morrow evening, when, I believe, it is proposed to frame and adopt a new Stale Constitution, as tbe old one does nut exactly conform to their interpret. nti'va of certain State tarn.

The Tortland yew Northwest says that Joaquin 311 ler, while in that city a few days ago, "denied the paternity of one of his children, and does to-day deny it, thereby traducing the character of ore of tbe most virtuous and self-sacrificing wives and mothers we have ever known? a woman who never utters a word of reproach or blame against this sleek-tongucd sham, and who pro tests with wifely delicacy agaiust the publication of his acts of Injustice, choosing rather to suffer Sn silence, and thereby deters the New North went from giving out much evidence which the world has need of to prove his real character." Poetical. This Is the way. the Boise City Herald writes up a Mem- querade Ball at that place, last week: There was a sound of revelry by night. And Boise City bad gathered there Her beauty and ber chivalry ; A hundred hearts beat happily, and when Music arose with voluptuous swell All went merry a a marriage bell. This extracts the stopple from the poetical orifice of " Joaquin, et. aL" At tbe muntcioal election in Albanv on Monday four Jiepublicans and three Democrats were elected. Eugene Jour nal. Jlow in creation that Eugene man ever got such an idea as the above in his wool we don't know.

Scarcity op Items. On account of the Instability of the weather, the scarcity of marriages, the dearth 'of births, the unusual care of the locomo tive engineers, the extraordinary dampness of gunjrowdur, and the mo notonously upright morals of thl community for the pust week, we find It impossible to present our usual nuantltv of local Items In this Issue of the Dkmocrat. .
