Entered at the Post Oflire for Transmission in ' the Moils at Second-( I inn*:. Whut Are We fo:!:inp Tof Wo merely chronicle the fact. At Piqna, Ohio, one Thomas Wise courted and said be would marry Miss Jennie Mnrtine. He backed out of his promise, and, after n time, engaged himself to another lady. The other day, with this guilt upon him, he went to tho Catholic church; also to the same church went Jennie, and took a Beat immediately behind Thomas. After she had smoothed out the folds of her dress nnd properly adjusted her new hat, she took a horse pistol from her pocket, placed the muz zle against Thomas' back, and blew a hole through his lungs. Thomas is not expected to recover. "But wasn't there any—? " No, it don't appear that there was anything of that kind at all. Jen nie seems to have been as chaste as an icicle on the eaves of Diana's woodshed, al l Tom ditto. There is not much to be said about it —md yet there is. It all comes from tho law of progress, you see. A woman's right to homicide the man who has been too much allured by her charms hits been so frequently affirmed by our courts that it may bo considered a part of the common law of the land. But to scorn her for tho allurements of some hated rival—this is a far greater out rage to sensitive womanhood, and pro gress demands that it be placed among capital crimes, also. This at least, seems to have been Miss Jennie's view of it when she pnrsnod Thomas into the sanctuary and slew him at tho foot of tho altar, as it were. The circle of social ideas and require ments within which a man's life may be considered safe is becoming fearfully narrowed. Tho old Siekles-Keyes case no one was ever disposed to complain of —for, notwithstanding pome very good people thought tho offender in that should havo been tried beforo ho was executed, still the moral of the case had no terrors for young men of "correct habits." But push this Ohio affair to its logical results, and where does the man of the period stand? He may en large his litany and cry out. " From rag ing females and horse-pistols in church, good Lord deliver mo!"' He may fly to the altar and cling to its horns for safe ty. In vain—ho shall be made to feel that "hades hath no fury liko a woman scorned." The upshot of it nil will be, we suppose, to make soci;:l intercourse between ladies and gentlemen imjxjssi ble. In the present condition of the law of homicido wo are not sure but that it would be best. Exemptions in Washington. The following incorrect item is going the rounds of the territorial press. The exemption law has been chnnged ma terially of late. Wo clip from the Col fax Gazette: Tho homestontl, which must lx> act ually occupied, to tho value of §1000; clothing, betiding and household goods to the value of §1500; one small boat to the value of 850; two cows, five hogs, bees, poultry, fuel and provisions.

To lighterman his boat, to tho value of 5250. To a drayman his team. Tho present law provides for exemp tions as follows: All wearing apparel of each person or family, all family pictures and keepsakes, and the homestead is exempt to the value of §1,000 if occupied by the head of a family.

The last number of tho West Shore Magazine contains engravings of the public buildings of Oregon, including the capitol, penitentiary, insane asylum, etc., and other views in Salem, tho cap ital city, BOOompanied by a largo sup plemental sheet with portraits, of mem bers of tho legislature now in session. A description of Salem and that poition of the great Willamette valley in which it is situated is a valuable feature of the number. Tho very readable and in structive article on tho "Genealogy of Oregon " should bo carefully perused by every one who would like to . become informed on the subject of tho creation of a great state of the American union on tho far western border of the nation, so long before the intermediate country was redeemed from a wilderness. 25 cents a copy, by mail, to any address. L. Samuel, publisher, Portland, Oregon. A convict in the Walla Walla peni tentiary charges tho officials of that institution with gross neglect of duty, in that the prisoners are only exercined hair an hour Sundays; that the food is cooked without seasoning; that little attention is given to the sanitary con dition of the cells, and that proper underclothing is not provided. If this is true, it is a disgrace to our civilization. Officials who have in chargo those un fortunates who are deprived of their liberty for whatever cause, who add one jot or tittle to the punishment that the law prescribe, or fail to give their wards the care and attention that our laws contemplate, should be banished to Siberia, where they would find congenial employment in the Russian prisons. While we aro opposed to making martyrs of criminals, we believe in treating them as human beings. At a public meeting of the citizens of Lewiston, Idaho, held recently, tho fol lowing resolutions wore unanimonsly adopted: Resolved, that tho vital interests of north Idaho demand its annexation to Washington territory, when admitted as a state. That wo condemn the opposition of Delegate Dubois against tho measure. That we condemn any effort looking to any statehood of Idaho which includes north Idaho within its limits. That we urgently request congress to submit this question to a vote of tho people of north Idaho. A. S. Bliton, editor of the Wheat land (Dak) Eagle, contemplates moving his newspaper plant to Palouse City.—[Exchange. If this proves to bo the case, th? Herald can congratulate Palonse City on the acquisition. Mr Bliton is not only a rattling good newspaper man, but a moat genial fellow as well. Pa louse needs a lively paper the worbt way. The Northern Pacific officials say that the mild weather in the territory trav ersed by the line has been the cause of a large immigration into the northwest. During the first cine days of last month there was & greater number of settlers coming to Washington territory than during the entiro month of January last year. The Idaho legislature has decreed that the terrriorial university shall be located at Moscow. That politic body hopos by this means to endear the pan handle to the citizens of Idaho. Mos cow is jubilant. Wheat Freights. [Chester (Penna. i llecord.] The Palouso territory is capable of producing, when fully developed, 300,000,000 bushels of wheat for export annually. If the agriculturists of that wonderfully productive land are relieved from the burdens laid on them by mo nopolistic transportation corporations, aad are granted as low freight charges as are in voguo, say, between Chicago and New York, they can lay wheat down on Tucoma's wharves at 40 cents per bushel and make a living profit. Wheat is carrie*! from Tacoma to England for 22 cents per bushel. If the transporta tion rate per bushel from the shipping towns in Palouse territory to Tacoma was not over 8 cents per bushel, which would bo ample to enable the transpor tation companies to earn dividends, the soft wheats grown in that region would bo laid down in England for about GO cents per bushel. And the day when this will be done is plainly in sight. 11 THE PUG-NOSED GIRL. Tricotrin Pronounces Her a Tiling; c I Beauty :tml v Joy Forever. Ido remember mo, in these faint air weary days, of the youth of my spirit, vriid I wandered fancy free through such work as those of the mortal Junius Hen: Browne, writes Tricotrin in l'wk. Ami do, moreover, remember me of a remark o his which went thus: "Her nose wai divine inasmuch as it pointed toward Heaven." Whereat I was wont to luu^h. knowing that thereby did Browne signify i; pug-nosed girl with large gray eyes and: sunburst of ambrosial curls that tilled tht earth with white horses. Now that the sandpaper of adversity has scraped the gloss oft' my youth, and ex posed beneath the varnish some of the cheat > ness of the natural material, I laurrh not at the pug-nosed girl. I smile at her. Tor. verily, I do conceive that she U a thing of beauty and a joy forever. But, alas! the philosophers arc not witfi me. Authorities on personal beauty, from Winckelmanu to Henry T. Finck, say that a nose should be straight. Brother Finck says that the Greelc artists, who made straight noses, took their idea of the divine nose from the contours of childhood. Their gods and goddesses possessed no cavity at the root of the nose, and this, quoth Finck, is characteristic of youth. " Later hi life," ho continues, "these cavities (brain cavi ties) bulge forward and produce the hollow, which is, therefore, an indication of superior cranial development and higher intellectual powers. Hence, as Prof. Kollimmn sug (tests, the object of the Greek artists' in making the nose of their deities form a straight line with the forehead was prob ably to give them tho stamp of eternal youth." But why should n straight line be beauti ful in the midst of the gracious contours of the human face! Tho curvilinear prospect is that which wholly inspires the artistic mind. Does not even a small boy, even one who has but one eye, and sees but one-h:;!f the glory of nature, rejoice more in the curves of a dog's tail, a velocipede, a he goat, a mince pie, a foot-ball, a marble, a tilver quarter, or what not, than in the square of the hypothonuiie or the iustruet or's ruler? Ami what is a smrvll boy, with nnkept hair and freckled cheeks, with soven warts upon Ills hands and tho essence of joy i:i his heart, but tho Incarnate spirit ot eternal youth, not yet jangled out of tune by the shadow of ago and tho inevitable wrestling for the wherewithal? Docs he bite his lip: if the world grows old and kingdoms fail, ii commerce vanishes into "trackless, blue immensity, " and tho tariff swells like the shadow of doom, if tho school keeps or not: These things show that there are both beauty and eternal love in curves, and argue that the Greek artists did not weil when they made foreheads and noses oi their gods run into one another in a straight line. Better is the mild and gentle hollow at the root of the nose, and better still tl>e wide and deep excavation on the upper surface o£ the organ of smell, which gives it the as piration of divinity, according to the im mortal Browne. Moreover, if the girl with a straight nose obeys the time-worii injunction and follows it, whither will she tend' Surely around and around the earth on a parallel of lat itude, a meridian of longitude, or, what is more, difficult of navigation, a rhumb-line. But if the girl with thQ pug nose follows it, she goes as straight to Heaven as smoke on a windless day. It may be that my more conventional friends and fellow-citizens will laugh at me for loving a versatile n.se. Yet I have thus much merit: I do not iove tho prehensile nose of the tribes that refused to be lost. These nose 3 aro tho antipodes of the inno cent and heavenward pug, which is dear to mine eyes. And lastly, brother—let me whisper tliir. softly, with an accompaniment of low musk —the pug nose interferes not with the di vine institution of osculation. It is benefi cently turned upward out of the way. and leaves the lips free and undefended, so that you may impress thereon a salute, a f ricudly. touch or a slow print of love. Sonny, this is where the pu<?-nosed girl has the everlasting buljre, on her sisters. NOTICE OF FINAL PROOF. Land Office at Walla -Walla, W. T., Doc. 24, 1838.
