County. - Cody's Opening Bald. —A grand and interesting event was the opening party given by Mr. John Cody, in his elegant new fire-proof brick building on the old "Cody's corner," last evening. A large attend ance greeted the occasion, the music was excellent, the dancing programme very attractive, and the ■dancers in both the large halls, upper and lower, en joyed the festivities ia rare manner. The ball was a handsome success. Pleasing Entebtainmene. —The noted magician the Fakir de Bordeax, will give another of his very interesting exhibitions this evening, at George Gans' new Hall on Main stjpet, just above Chipman's drug storo, for the farewell benefit of Master Willie, the accomplished infant jig dancer. The Fakir presents a very attractive programme and Willie will do his best dancing. Help the benefit. Malheitb Diggings. —A small party, consisting of George C. Merritt and others, left this place a day or two ago for the new diggings on Willow creek, a trib utary of the Malheur, about thirty miles from Olds' ■Snake river Ferry. The diggings are reported to be deep, quite extensive, and will pay fair wages gener -ally. Indians are troublesome in that region at this dime. The Weaxheb. —Very sharp, frosty, cold morn ings early in the week, with thermometer marking from 8 to 15 degrees below freezing point at sunrise; cloudy and portending rain on Thursday ; yesterday a change to more moderate temperature, pleasantly warm at mid-day, with bright sky and indications of ■charming Fall weather. Tonsobial. —Wm. Wright, at his barber shop on Main street, next to Baird k Judge's saloon, notifies the public that he will do shaving for half the usua price, cut hair and shampoo for 50 cents each, and do all that pertains to his business in a speedy and satis factory manner. Read his advertisements. Dissolved.— By advertisement in this issue it will be seen that the firm of Natter k Thevenin has dis solved, and that Mr. Natter will settle up the affairs ■of the firm at Centerville, and Mr. Thevenin, in this •city, will attend to the same business here. Disxbict Coubt. —On Monday next the Fall term of the District Court for this county will commence, Hon. J. R. McBride, Chief Justice, to preside. From Wm. B.

Good Templars. —The attention of the members of this Order, of Boise Lodge, No. 2, is called to the notice of a meeting, published in this issue, to be held in the new Hall on Main street on next Tuesday evening. The Execution of O'Horan.— The Mex ican correspondent of the N. Y. Times gives "the following account of the execution of O'Horan at the city of Mexico, on August 21st: Reaching the place he stepped lightly from the carriage, and accompanied by two priests 1 walked briskly to the spot designated to him, there to undergo the dread penalty. He stood -ft few feet from a high wall, surrounded on three sides by troops, with thousands of spec tators filling the streets and covering the roofs of the houses, which were black with human beings. He was as calm and self-possessed as if at a review, placing his hand upon his left breast, and requesting the soldiers to aim at his heart. Then, gracefully bowing to all, he -drew from his pocket a white handkerchief, folding it across his knee, and taking a last look upon the scene before him, gazing at the cloud-obscured sun as it was just rising over the snow-erowned peak of Popocatt^etl, seem ingly bidding it and the world adieu, he raised the handkerchief to his eyes, tying it over them, and gave the word to fire. A moment's delay occurred, when he urged the men to fire, exclaiming, "Vivala Independeneia !" "Viva Mexico!" ,He expected to be shot in the breast, but after the pieces had been leveled upon him, he was directed to turn, but not obeying, an officer stepped forward and forced Jiim to turn his back to the executioners. The next instant the report of the rifles was heard and the brave Gen. O'Horan, the friend of the foreigner, the hero of Puebla, was struggling in the agonies of death. After he fell, he was shot four times in succession, and his breast .literally torn into shreds. The fourth shot was fired at an interval of not less than five min utes from the third. It was a sickening, hor rifying sight, but one greatly enjoyed by the Mexicans. Masonic. —The Masonic Grand Lodge of California, lately in communication, elected the following as its officers tor the ensuing year: Wm. H. Davies, of Columbia, Grand Mas ter: H. H. Hartly, of Sacramento, (re-elected) Deputy Grand Master ; Thomas Beck, of Wat sonville, Senior Grand Warden ; L. E. Pratt, of Sierra, Junior Grand Warden ; James Laid ley, of San Francisco, (re-elected) Grand Treasurer ; Alex. G. Abell, of San Francisco, .(re-elected) Graud Secretary. A man, whose store burnt down in Wash- ington, Nevada county, Cal., a short time ago. found in the ashes $1,100 in gold coin, which he had at one-time put away for safe keeping in a secret hidiug-place, but forgot just where- about in the building, and finally concluded it thud been stolen. The recovery of the money made him nearly even on the loss of his build- ing by the f^e. - Web Foot Outdone.— The Walla Walla Statesman tells of a big apple brought to that office, which weighed 46 ounces and measured 16£ inches in circumference. It was grown in N. Ford's orchard, Umatilla Valley, Oregon. The Statesman says it is the largest apple on record. • = < , The early settlers of Oregon have organ- ized a Pioneer Society, of which Hon. J. W. Nesmith is President, Judge Deady Vice Pres- ident, and Medorum Crawford Secretary. It is organized somewhat on the plnn of the Cal- ifornia Pioneer Society. -^•♦■4 A lot was sold in Chicago lately at $3000 a foot, ' ' ' ; &*** A 'i .i f ^ <8wml DUrtteraffisr.
