I'll Mark the Place With Flowers. BY MRS. SARA WOLVERTON. INSCRIBED TO H. C.—. I sat one morn and conned a book In silence all alone, When thought suggesting something else Across my mind was thrown. I looked around to find a mark Wherewith to keep my place. And chanced to rest my eyes upon A well-filled flower vase. 1 t I quick arose, aud culled a leaf, ; Twas fit for Flora's bower And said, 1 see what I can do, I'll mark it with a flower. And then I thought, and so with life, When falls her drenching showers, . While I run In to wait the sun I'll mark place with flowers. DETROIT, Nov., 1875. DOLPHIN'S HOLIDAY STORY. [John Latey, jr., in London Dramatic [John Latey, jr., in London Dramatic New.] "I tell von, Burt, this business'. must be done to-nirht. Ain't I mas ter of the sliow? Blame me- if i'll stand the nonsense of this darnation Britisher an v longer!" " "And I'll try my luck with his lit tle English beauty at the same time," I heard McDongall add to himself as he crossed the stage, and followed Burt out of the hall. . What could be mean? Perhaps I mightn't have been too straight laced. I had beeu too long in the profession for that. But the dark allusion to the bright little ladv of our company at once filled me with suspicion. Maybe you've seen the sea-lion at the "Zoo." swaying himself right and left in anxious ex pectation of catching a palatable whitiug from his keeper? Well, my anxiety impelled me to spring half out of my tub, to sway to and fro in a similar fashion, and to send a quick glance through the stage door at the retreating figures ot JicDougaii and Burt. I could see the snow lay thick on the ground, and it was yet snowing. And across the lane I couhl just make out Abram Lake standing at the open door of his friend's shanty. Then the stage door was slammed fast, and I should have been in com plete darkness had not a faint light from a window opposite me relieved the gloom somewhat. The sight of Abram I.ike reas sured me a bit. Somehow or other I come to think he was well inclined toward my favorite manager, Jlf. Martin.and his young and pretty wife, Who could help being won indeed by Bessie Martin? I couUin t Tor one. ' There was such a tender, trust ful look in her laughing blue eyes thatonewas compelled to surrender at discretion. She was frank to the verge of flirting, I now aud then thought, when others were favored by her smiles and sweet speeches. Aim sometimes felt an uncomfortable feeling come over me when Martin, poor man ! bewildered over head and ears with hard work, seemed to neg lect his fairy of a wife, and gave Mc Dougall more opportunities than was prudent of being in Bessie's com-lan.V- . . , McDougall, it coula not oe denied, was a good-looking, well-dressed man. Whether his attentions were agreea ble to Bessie or whether she cheerful ly endured them for polite reasons, I couldn't quite make out. He used generally to be close handy when she ur one musician uettly plied ner busy fingers and drew the sweetest music possible from our rather crazy piano, wnne 1 went turougu me tricks which used to draw nunurcus every night to see the ''Performing Dolphin" at Henryburgh. He would turn over the pages of her music book and, bending low, would always be whispering something in her ear. Had he been all the time leading up to the outrage which he might even now be attempting? Were the differences that had ex isted between McDougall and Martin throughout our tour in the States on the point of being settled by vio lence? Martin had my heartiest sympath'. Still it was impossible for me to do aught but wait and be on the alert for whatever might happen. Faintly, as a distant clume, the merry tinkling 01 tne siuign oeus stole now and again into the silent hall, and told me the good folks of Henryburgirwere speeding L"ome from their bracing ride over the snow. Then all was quiet, till I heard the sound of footsteps in the lane, and the murmur of voices. My heart almost ceased to beat, so anxious was 1 listening. But ior hours all was silence. Twelve o'clock, one o'clock chimed. The moonlight at length gleamed through the win dow, lighting up my little platform aud the cannon which surmounted it, and which it was my crowning duty to fire as the finale of my perform ance of a night Two o'clock had struck when I heard a rustling noise outside, and soon after saw a black object appear at the window. It was the face of Burt. Evident ly the "business" was about to be attempted by McDougall' s tool. I instinctively leapt out on the stage. Simultaneously the window was raised by Burt, and he thrust his head in. My mind was instantly made np. I was convinced that this burglari ous visitation boded no good to Mar tin; and it Dashed upon me there was only one means of awakening Mar tin's friend, Abram Lake. An inclined plank led up to my cannon. Up this I wobbled as Burt had almost entered the window. Quick as thought I snapped at the string with my teeth and gave a smart pull. The usual flash and re port followed. And looking np I had the satisfaction of seeing Burt, bis face white with tne scare, hastily withdraw 3iis body thionsrh the win dow, and disappear rather more sud denly thai he came. The stage door was rpened a min ute later. Happily my ruse had suc ceeded. By the light "of the lantern carried by ne of the new arrivals I recognizedlMr. Martin and Abram Lake. - . . "Nothing missing, Abram," said Martin I rcan at-e his tall maniy figure and pale, bearded face before me now holding up his lantern and giviug a quick glance round, till his eyes rested on me with a kind of puz zled looku. j"But what the dickens does Dolph np there?" "Wal, I ghess Master Dolph has been having a kinder rehearsal all to himself, and he's just fired ' a volley, I bet, to range u's.theyoung varmint! Anyway, it's kinder freezing in this byre placeand -1 move we tracks back to my friend Jaker's stove." "Not 3'eV- Lake; depend upon it, Dolph's not done this without good cause. .Look: that windows open. Let's reconnoitre outside! Down, Dolph, dowsirT . They were not absent long. The first thing that Martin did on his re turn was to pat me on the head and hand me a second bountiful snpply of fish when -I was comfortably in stalled in my tub, Lake tlie mean while making it plaiu to me, from what he said to Mr. Martin, that they knew almost as much as I did as to McDougall's designs, anil as to the attempt that had been made by Burt. "Calculate," he said, "I'll just have a hot at the durned thief if he tries his little game on to-night Durn me if thet warn't the cleverest per formance thet fish has gone through! It's clear thet the thief crept up the lane like a cat ain't we seen his trail in the snow? got up to thet window with a ladder, and was jest a going to sneak in when Dolph kinder! scared him and roused us at the same time. I'll let all Henryburgh kuow it before noon. And alt the week you'll hev crowded houses, Mister Martin." "Ay, but you're reckoning without McDougall. He has the audacity to claim the show as his own. I may as well tell you my position in a few words, Lake. Dolph was originally the property of my governor, Mr. Bailey, an Englishman. I came across to the States as his manager, and found that Mr. Bailey had en tewed into partnership with this scoundrel McDougall, who professed to know nil the tuns and outs of the show business in this country. Bai ley being Suddenly called back, to England, lTt me as manager, and by deed of "attorney entitled -me to re ceive half tffe profits of every cxhi- TTblttnn oniMwhalf. - Btrt, u sooner had he sailed than McDougall tried all he knew to get the show entirely into his own hands. He used his own name in the bills and in the adver tisements. Over and over again he has tried: to get possession of the treasury in full. Over and over again I have only frustrated his tricks by virtue of a magistrate's order. We had a few words after the perforin ance to-night, and from the threats he let drop, I feel sure he will make an attempt to remove Dolph bodily before morning. Hence your aid is very welcome, indeed, Lake !" "Wal, sir, I won't stop to tell you now what made me offer you the help of Abram Lake. If yon II fol low my advice j-ou'll jest come back along with me to Dick Jaker s over the way. We shell be warmer than we are hyar. We will leave the door ajar and ketch the durned thief ef he tries it on again!". So I was somewhat easier when they departed, for I knew keen ears would be listening for burt s return, and I felt I could have a quiet doze in safety. I must have slept some uours. Seven o'clock struck when I awoke. A little after I heard a door slam in the lane, and a cheery "good morn ing, Dolph, in Mr. Martin s farailliar voice, stole in at the window, telling me his watch was at an end. There could be nothing to fear, surely, now. It was daylight The people were out and aoout in tne main street of Henryburgh. The sleigh bells were ringing ringing in Christmas, mayhap, for that evening would be Christmas fcve.and 1 don t mind confessing the anticipation of a good glass of Christmas punch had something to do with my dozing off again not for many minutes though ! I awoke with a hazy notion that someone had broken into the hall. The next moment I was in complete darkness. Something had been thrown over my tub. In vain I at tempted to thrust my head through. The tub, enveloped in matting, was lifted from the stage and borne out of the hall in spite of my struggles to es cape. There could be no dcubt I had at length fallen into the hands of the Philistines, and was being carried off bodily whither I could not im agine. ' We must have been fully two hours' drive from Henryburgh when an oath escaped my driver. Beyond question Burt was my captor. He lashed his horses into a mad gallop. The sleigh seemed to fly over the snow. Was he pursued? I listened intently,-but could hear nothing but the smack of Burt's whip and the thud-thud of the horses' hoofs and the whirring noise of the sleigh. ' A shot! Fresh curses from Burt! Rescue seemed nigh; but, alas! our speed did but increase. The flight and pursuit continued till the sleigh was brought to a sud den pause, and my heart gave a joy ous leap,when I recognized the voice of Abram Lake. "Look ye, hyar, stranger," said Abram, in his quiet, resolute way, "if ye don t jest turn them horses round and kirn back to Henryburgh with me, I'll send a bullet through your durned head! Yc'd best be quick now. Look at this hyar warrant, and kirn back with that fish to Henry burgh!" . "Check, McDousrall!" I chuckled as we shortly after returned to the hall, and Burt had the pleasuieof re storing me to the stage before surren dering himself into- the custody of the police. liut. 1 was hallooinsr before we were out of the wood! Mr. Martin presently entered with a face whiter than ever. It brightened up a little at sight of me, "Bravo, Lake!" he said, "I have to thank 3-011, and I do so with all roy heart, for bringing Dolph safely back If I could only get a satisfactory telegram from the governor in Eng land all might go well now." "What telegram?"' "Oh, I forgot You started in pur suit before the summons against me was issued. In auswer to in v charge against him for larceny, McDougall accused me of perjury, and the con founded Mayor committed ine, giving me the option of paving $2000 bail or coins to jail. I was only let off for an hour or two bv depositing ail the ready cash I have, $900. If the answef to mv telegram doesn't come soon. Lake, I shall have to go to pris on, and the show will he in McDou gall's hands." "Worse! the villain may rob me of something far dearer than mere means of living T' muttered Martin to himself through his clenched teeth, unheard by any save myself. His fair little wife entered at that moment and the dingy hall seemed to me all sunshiny, and I confidently looked up to ee her glad smile re flected in her face. But his face was stern and white; Presently I heard her sweet voice asking, "Whatever has happened, Will?" and I kucw a little form was nestling up to him, and a psirof vio let eves were fondly questioning him. Abram Lake had quietly slipped out into the caue and left them alone. "Happened?" came the passionate reply, as if the stricken man could bear his trials no longer. "Only this. All I have lived and toiled for is slip ping from me. The woman I loved "Will!" "Yes, you ! Don't think 3-our love passages with MeDongall have es caped my notice! He is my worst enemy; 3-et this morning I found you in earnest conversation with him." "Yes. Will,'" was the impetuous re Ay of the young wife, "it was only this morning the villain appeared in his true colors. I confess" I hail ta ken his smiling face and attentions to mean mere courtesy. But he had the shamelessness to insult me with a base proposal t -day. Will. I only stooped to give him an imUgnnut an swer indeed, that was all, Will, and then he hinted yon were in peril. Will. What did he mean? Do tell me, dearest. Confide in me! Would that you had confided in me before! Theu I should never, never have per mitted the man to remain in my company a minute!" "Can this be truer' was the doubt ful response. "Where were you, then, when I returned homo this morning'?" "Whar!" was the loud, bluff an swer that called their attention to the gaunt form of Abram Lake, who had hastily entered, holding a letter in his hand. "Why, the dear lad3' the kindest sister of mercy that ever breathed on this hyar airth was nursing my sick wife, Mr. Martin, and thank-God she has brought her round. Guess I shouldn't hev gone heart and soul, man, into yer troubles guess I shouldn't have rode till I was fit to drop from the saddle, if it hadn't been for that little angel thyar." "My darling, forgive me!" w:is the softened appeal of the strong man, as he clasped the little loving woman to his heart, adding with a kind of sobbing laugh, "Confound that Dolph! He's splashing some water into my e-es." "Forgive me, Bessie!" he repeated, in a tremulous whisper. "The truth is, I have been utterly worn out in mind and body by the treachery of that cursed McDougall, and I didn't like to burden you with my troubles, darling." "But 3'ou haven't told me of the peril you were in. Will," was her anxious appeal, after the kiss of for givness had been given. "Guess this hyar telegraph will be yer best answer, sir," broke in Abram, as he handed the message to Mr. Martin. With a hopeful look on his worn face the manager tore open the en velope, and read: "Have placed $4000 to 3'our credit Draw at once on Goodwin fe Co.. of Henryburgh. Will come myself by next steamer. Keep McDougall out of the show till I come." "Thank Heaven ! We're well clear of this McDougall at last, Bessie. I'm in no peril now, dearest Abram, I'll have this telegram posted throughout Henryburgh. We shall have the biggest house the town has ever seen. And 3rou and ray wife and Dolph shall spend a true English Christmas Eve together f ' We have been on the lookout for great Democratic principles. We have discovered some points, but not enough to equip a great party for a National campaign. The first is that the Democratic party is devoted to the Confederate theory of State rights. . - The second point is that the Dem ocratic party is in favor of all the jobs called improvements that have been fixed upon in the late Southern Confederacy. The third point is that, as the ma jority of Democratic members of Con gress, and the backbone of the party itself, are of the section late in rebel lion, it is the rebellious part of the eouutry that must govern the whole country -if the Democratic party comes into power. C'in. Com. For the Journal. Oregon Letter. SALEM, OREGON, Feb. 4th, 1876. Editor Journal: I must confess that I have beea very remiss in wri ting for 3-our excellent paper. It comes to me regularly, and to me, as well as all your Gallia friends here who read it, it is a welcome friend. It has the true Republican ring, and it' advocates the true polky for Ohio, and the nation at large. Since the transfer of the Southern Confederate House of Representatives to Wash ington City, recently, the eyes of our people are beginning to opeu to the true state of things. We beat the rebels at the bullet box, aud ever since their aim has been to beat us at the ballot box; aud in this they have been but too successful. While they have thrown every obstacle in the way of the Administration for ten years past in its endeavors to re pair the ruinous consequences of the "Great Rebellion," they have never failed to breed disaffection in the masses towards our Administration. Every blunder in the officials, every corruption amongst them, our high taxes, the depreciation of our nation al currency, frauds in the collecjion of the revenue, have beeu loudly con demned and pointed at as Republican misrule! I ever asserted that Con gress cast "pearls before swine" in re moving the disabilities of thousands of reconstructed rebels. After our nation divorced the Democratic par ty from the slave power, they have sought an alliance with some other order that might strengthen them, so as to rule auraiu. They are now mar rieil to the Church of Rome, and are nuandam friends of tli Holy Infalli ble Pope! And now, true to Romish instincts, they aim to drive the Bible out of our public schools, and destro our public school system. Is there, or has there ever been a-thing of true American Democracy or Repub licanism in Catholicism? But the nation is roused from its slumbers in time. We have yet the Senate and President strong bul warks against the encroaching hosts of rebels and traitors. Let this, our centennial year, record a Tictory over our internal foes more glorious than the surrender of the British at York town, or Lee's surrender to Grant Set Oregon down as O. K. on the vote for the nominee of our National Republican Convention at Cincinnati, next June. TIMES IN OREGON. Taking our State at large, and we j are in a prosperous condition. The growth of Oregon, in Hint of wealth, general development and enterprise, has been truly marvelous. But one thing must be taken in the account: Men. and women who had sufficient nerve, in former years, to brave and endure the perils, dangers, toils and hardships of a journey of over two thousand miles, across the Great American treeless desert in ox wag ons, under tents for six months, were just such persons as could build up a country. I have been here nearly a quarter of a century, and comparin what was here when I came and what is here now, and I am truly aston ished can scarcely believe my own eyes. The influx of Immigration here for a year past has been very great Nearly all of the immigrants come here to stay. 'Most of them-are from the grasshopper States, yet many come from Ohio, Pennsylvania, the Western and Eastern States, aud Europe. The Legislature of Oregon created a Slate Board of Immigration, about two years ago; headquarters of the Board at Portland. The duties of the Board are to give general informa tion at home and abroad to all per sons desirous of coming here as to employment, location, etc. The Board is thoroughly organized. They appoint Sub-Commissioners in all the principal towns and settlements in the State, who receive immigrants and give them all needful information and friendship. The plan works ad uiirabl3'. I was appointed Sub Com missioner for a District in Marion county. Oregon, nine months ago. Any information which your readers- and others may desire or uregon, 1 shall be pleased to give by letter or otherwise. OUR MINES. The constant new discoveries of rich gold, silver, eopper, lead, cinna bar, coal, lime and iron mines in Ore gon are wonderful." The quantities of these minerals are in proportion to the height of our mountains aud big trees, the extent of our ocean and river navigation, and the vast extent of the great Pacific Slope of the American Continent lhese mines reach down almost to our very doors! It would seem that we made a lucky deal with Great Britain when she graciously granted us this country, lying between 42 degrees and 46 de grees N. lat But this gave us Ore gon, W. T. and Idaho T.; the area ex tending from the Pacific Coast to the summit of the Rocky Mountains. And what a diversified country we have in those bounds! Resources and area enough for a little empire. THE SEASON. Our winter, or rainy season, set in very early last Fall (Oct 20th.) The weather has been very rainy . ever since, with an occasional light snow which soon melted off. The drouth continued till the setting in of win ter hence there waa much less wheat sown in the fall than is usual here. Fall wheat and all grasses here look well. Our stock have required but little prepared feed so far. The gen eral or mean temperature has been, for four months, about. 48 degrees above zero. GRANGERS AND MONOPOLISTS. The persistent antagonism between those two classes, gains force here. How it will terminate remains to be aeen. About a million bushels of wheat in this valley, onderthe Grange arrangement, was stored in their dif ferent warehouses, there to remain . till one dollar er bushel would bo had for it Speculators could have bought it at those prices and made a' handsome profit ou it hut they de termined not to give that 'price in bulk. Laiel3", however, the Grang rs have given way, and nearly the whole bulk is, sold at S7 cts. per bu. in' cargo. ' OUR COMMERCE. This branch of business is greatly on the increase. We have direct line of ships from Portland and Astoria to China, Honolula, Australia, South America and New York. Our flour, wheat, fish, lumber, coal and spars afford much in bulk fwr export trade from here. Our China trade is in creasing greatly. A genuine China ship lately arrived in Portland ! Near ly every ship that arrives from the West brings to our shores hundreds of Chinese laborers, and some rich Chinese merchants. There is a Chinese merchant in Portland who is worth about two hundred thousand dollars.

The undersigned citizens of Har risburg and vicinity having lately been informed that a whisky saloon is about to be set up in our midst and having learned'from past hitter experience and observation the de moralizing and damning results pro duced by patronizing establishments of that kind, and knowing also that neither the physical, mental or moral health of this community will be in the least degree improved", but on the contrary greatly impaired by the sup port of such an institution, and recog nizing the fact that self-preservation is the first law of our being, we do hereby enter this our most earnest and solemn protest, against the set ting op or keeping a room among us, where intoxicating liquors can be had. And while we do not wish to be. driven to harsh measures to pro tect ourselves against the evils re sulting from the keeping of such a room, we wish it distinctly under stood that we will exercise all the ' rights we profess, legal and natural if need be, to prevent a curse of that kind being inflicted upon us.

He was "too full for utterance," but occasionally he would mutter something to himself when the 'Squire would request him to keep quiet; but no sooner would he get through making his requests than Isaac would begin his mumbling. Finally the 'Squire got 011 his dignity, and put the following to Isaac as a settler: "Now, Isaac, I have requested you to keep quiet several times, and if 3-ou. open 3-our head again I will fine you five dollars for contempt of court and send you to jail for drunkenness." This put Isaac out of time, and he arose from his seat walked to the door, stopped, and retorted iu the following energetic way: "'Squire, if they would stall-feed you for forty 3-ears you wouldn't make half as good a man as your father. I knew him, and he was the darnedest meanest man I ever did know." The Lazy Daughter. Among the worst features of a bad ,ly minded daughter, we should first single out indolence, or to use the rough and more expressive English word, laziness. A laz3 sofa-lolling, lie-a bed late in the morning young woman, is an affront to her sex, and in her own family more a curse than a blessing. To her mother she is a burden, and to her father an object of contempt She is also a great promo ter of domestic strife, and a shocking example to her young sisters. Such a being crawls, instead 'of walking with alacrity through life. She daw dles instead of works, her speech is vulgar, and altogether her ways are very bad indeed; and to add to her misdeeds her health suffers through her foll3, and thus she wantonly im poses a grievous tax on the purse and patience of her parents. For a girl to be idle in the flush of her youth is to invite any and all kinds of calamities to befall her with blistering anguish, and depend upon it, the downward career of most af flicted women mav be priman traced to this earl3 aud wicked habit for it is noth ng else, it nemg for a young woman to be industry as the reverse. r of ' A WASTE Ot -tn-rPntting 7 pot, ill" California- Tvkko Las solved the pr rapid transit, large prouwa . . 1 Oi. turns.
