A new organization, under the name of "Patrons of Husbandry," has re cently sprung into existence, and is now said tt> number nearly two million members, and to have " prranges" in twenty-two States of the Fnion. A Meeting of certain representatives of the organization was recently hel l in New York city, to deliberate uj>on the best measures to render its j»ower ef fective. The object appears to be to free the producers from the exorbitant charges of transj>ortation exacted by the great railroad corporations. The means of accomplishing this end are not yet made public if, indeed, they have been decided upon, but that its action will take the form of political partyism is altogether probable. The movement in the West is exceed ingly popular. In lowa there is said to be no less than 2,200 granges, with an Aggregate adult membership of 100,- 000 persons—one half the vote of the State. In the great States of Illinois, "Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana, the or ganization is making steady progress. The fanners of the country have long realized that they were practically pow erless in shapiug or directing the law's of commerce and exchange, although primarily interested in all that affects them. The conflicting interests be tween city and country have generally been decided in favor of the former. Compact bodies of men have had l>etter opportunity of controlling these inter ests than the farmers who have not pos seted the means of personal communi cation for the interchange of sentiment. Fortunately for the success of the undertaking, the necessity became para mount before any strength was wasted in premature efforts, and consequently the organization has spread with as astonishing rapidity and its progress is still unchecked. It is based upon strong business wants, and appeals to the pockets as well as the consciences of its advocates. It is likely to exist until a modification of the causes that have called it into life is effected. Its natural affiliations will be with the op ponents of nil Administration that has given life and strength to so many gi gantic corporations. Its power when ever tin own as a unit will be irresistible. May we not hope that in this movement of the sturdy yeomanv of the country we will find its deliverance from the corruptions of the hour ? b PROF. FOWLER'S LECTIRES.— The pri vate lectures of Prof. Fowler, on Sat urday afternoon and evening were attended by a fair proportion of our rommunity who were not too prudish to seek information upon the great laws ■which regulate life and social happiness. The evening's discourse was of special interest to young men, and his earnest admonitions may serve to awaken those who have erred from ignorance of the disastrous offects of dissipation. On Sunday, the Professor lectured in the afternoon and evening upon " God and Immortality." None who listened to these discourses could fail to have their thoughts directed in many new chan nels all converging into the grand cen tral idea of a just God and a glorious immortalitv. ForRTH OF JULY. —The evei-glorious anniversary of American Independence is near at hand, and if our citizens in tend to have a celebration it is about time they were making the preliminary arrangements. We have not taken any pains to ascertain the sentiment of the people, but presume thev will cordially «o-operate in any movement for a gen eral commemoration «f the greatest fepoch in our country. POSTAL CHANGES.— The following pos*- Offices have recently been established in this Territory: Lewis River, Clarke County: Ewartzville, Wliitcom County; Ellensburg, Yakima County; Crab. Creek and Walker's Prairie, Stevens County; Orcas Island, Lopez Island and Guemes Island, Whatcoui County. The office at Atalinam Yakima Conntv-, has been discontinued. SMALL-POX. —A recent dispatch an nounces that the steamship John L. rStephcm is in quarantine at the mouth of the Columbia river, with several cases of small-pox on board. J3T A new evening paper to be called the Daily Sevct will appear is Portland soon. It will be democratic in politics and published by Bellinger, Carry & Co. I3f E TOO tic in a mild form exists At Walla Walla and throughout the Willamette illey. OMr A HEW POWER nr THE LAHD. ODD FELLOWB GRAND LODGE. The Portland HnlUiin publishes full reports of the proceedings of the 11. AY. (i vainl Lodge of Odd Fellows of the jurisdiction of Oregon, lately held at tlie Dalles. From this source and from the returned representatives of the Olympic lodges, we ler.rn that the ses siou was very harmonious, developing; peat prosperity nud lnight prospects for the Order throughout the jurisdic tion, which already numbers n member ship of more than 2,IKK). Among the legislative nets we find that a resolution was adopted asking permission from the Grand Lodge of the United States for the establishment of an independent jurisdiction in Washington Territory, ujK>n petition of lodges in said Territo ry and of British Columbia. Prolmbly the only question that will arise in con sidering the proposition will l>e as to the ability of the proposed new jurisdic tion to support a Grand Lodge of its own, as the Grand Sire is understood to hold to the view that the political subdivisions of States and Territories present the most natural and conveni ent boundaries for the several indepen dent jurisdictions of the Order. The general legislation of the Grand Lodge presents but little that would be of interest to those not connected with the Ordei, yet all must feel encouraged that in these times of selfishness and corruption, there is sufficient interest | among us in such matters to call to gether annually a convention so repu table in numbers, for the sole purpose 1 of legislating upon matters of a purely ! benevolent character, looking for the power to enforce its enactments solely to those instincts which lead men to do | good, that good may come of it. U].on the question of fixing the place for holding the next session of the Grand Lodge, the only competition was between Portland and Olympia, the former place securing the honor. Se attle was separated from the Olympia Lodges and made a new District with her Representative Cheadell as District Deputy G. M. H. t). Struve was ap pointed District Deputy G. M. for the district embracing the two lodges of this place. Bro. Struve was also elect ed W. G. Warden and Bro. Henry was appointed G. Conductor of the It. W. Grand Lodge of Oregon for the ensu ing year. Our Representatives speak in flowing terms of the courteous, open-handed welcome extended to their visitors by the brethren of the Dalles. Among other devices for their entertainment was an excursion upon the cars over the portage of the Dalles of the Columbia, a distance of about fifteen miles, with sufficient stoppages to allow the excur sionists to have a look at the most noted localities. " AHTRO-TIIEOLOGY." —Prof. Clianey commenced his second course of lec tures in the lower room of the Odd Fellows' building, Wednesday evening. We regret that the audience was not large, and that but few of our people belonging to the various religious de nomination were present. The lec tures contains a large amount of scien tific, literary, historical and philosoph ical matter and his astronomical charts are a valuable aid to lovers of the science. A a blind devotion to creed should not be allowed to deprive a large portion of the community of these ben efits. We hope the remaining lectures will be better attended. V&" " Peeping Tom," our respected friend of the Tribune, appears anxious to attract our attention. As the Cou rier's journey is about ended, we don't know but that we shall have to occa sionally take him by the nose or pull his ears (figuratively speaking) for inno cent diversion. We hope he will culti vate that brain, however, which Profes sor Fowler thought might be strength ened by nocturnal applications of wet bandages about the head. We join with that gentleman in the advice; by all means, young man, put your head to soak. GBAXD LODGE OFKICERS. —The Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows have elected a A. J. Marshall, of Hassalo Lodge, Portland, M. W. Grand Master; L. P. Higbee, of Owyhee Lodge of Silver City, Idaho, It. W. Deputy Grand Master; H. G. Struve, of Western Lodge of Olyinpia, R. W. Grand War den; Chester N. Terry and I. R. Moores, It. AV. Grand Secretary andß. VV. Grand Treasurer; Francis Henry, of Olympia Lodge, was appointed W. G. Conductor. tSf The merchants of Vancouver have, through a« agent, chartered a vessel in New York, which will -carry a cargo of merchandise direct to that port. ' S3" Twelve laborers were prostrated by a shock of lightning on Long Is land, N. Y., during a storm last week, and two were instantly killed. SERENADE. —The citizens of Vancou ver serenaded Judge McFadden, during his stay in that city last week. Oni<.os STATE Carrrvt BIILDIXO.—A Portland paper contains the following description of the new Capitol building u]>ou which the work of construction lias already commenced nt fcjalein: The building will have a totnl length of two hundred and sixty-four feet eight inches, a width of one hundred and fifty-seven feet eight inches, and will l»e three stories high. It will have n dome in the centre, a cruciform out line, and be of the Corinthian order of architecture. The basement will be built of stone to the height of three feet above ground and the remainder will be of brick, except the pillars, win dow caps, keystones and similar articles, which are to be made of iron. The basement will have 21 rooms for theuse of commit tees, a geologist, and persons whose labor is to be of the samo na ture, besides a large entrance hall. A grand staircase will lend from the first to the second floor, and four capacious doors will give admission to the inte rior from the streets. The first floor will contain the chambers or the State officials, and the Legislative halls. The apartment to be occupied by the Senate will be forty-seven by seventy five feet, that by the House seventy five by one hundred feet. They are to have altitude enough, as they are to eitend through two stories in height, the upper portion to be occupied by a gallery for spectators. Both floors will lmve rotundas, to give theni an air of heaviness. The second story will be occupied by the Supreme Court, the State Library, Commissioners' and consultation rooms, mid several offices. All will be finished in the most sub stantial manner, and the building will be furnished with the latest conveni ences for heating and illuminating such structures. ANOTHER " GREAT SPEECH" FHOM GRANT. —Of all the consummate asses that have disgraced official position, we believe that U. S. Grant is the longest-eared. In a recent " speech" to the people of Galena, he said: " Although it in protiable that I never will live among you, nut in the future lie only a visitor as I mil at present, yet I hope to spend Home (lavs with you every vear ami remain louner t'han I have been' able to this time, and I expect to cast my vote here always." So it appears that Grant has made up his mind for a life-lease of the Presi dential chair; at least, this is the natur al conclusion from the declaration that he intends to vote where he never ex pects to reside. It is quite as ridicul ous as his noted speech at the agricul tural fair a few months ago. IN TROUBLE. —It appears that the stockholders of the Oregon Herald Pub lishing Co. are not as united in senti ment as the success of their enterprise demands that they should be, and con sequently that journal has lately become somewhat noted for its erratic course. Its readers were hardly prepared, how ever, for the announcement of its total suspension in last Tuesday's issue, or the statement in the succeeding number that its former intimation was a " mis take of the Foreman." We trust the company will yet be able to reconcile their difficulties and restore the Herald to its former prudent and consistent course. HITMAN BIGHTS. —Mrs. Duniway de livered one of her admirable discourses in Olympic Hall, on Thursday evening, in which she reviewed some of Prof. Fowler's doctrines in a peculiarly edi fying manner. It is to be regretted that a call from home necesitates her early return to Portland—for which place she left yesterday morning—and compelled the postponement of the re mainder of her course of lectures until another season. This will probably be when the Legislature is in session, at which time the Territorial Suffrage Con vention will meet in this place. K7" Within the last throe yean there has recti an actual decreaso of the population of Thurston County. Washington Territory. This looks bad for Olympia. We find the above item going the rounds of the Oregon press. It is not true. The census taken three years ago was by a U. S. Deputy Marshal, whose pay was in proportion to the number of names enrolled. Conse quently a large "floating papulation" was returned, which never constituted a portion of our community. FIRES. —The residence of John Gove, on the Skookum Chuck, was totally destroyed by fire one day last week. On Tuesday last, the dwelling of Mr. Roberts, on Mound Prairie, was con sumed, with all its contents. No fur ther particulars. BP* We learn from the Port Town send Argus that a man named Wm. Maddox shot and stabbed another man named Wm. Brown, at Port Ludlow, on the 27 inst. Brown lies in a critical condition. jy Judge McFadden has returned from his trip east of the mountains, and expresses himself delighted with his reception at all points. !•* The first case of ann-strdke oc curred in New York on the 32th inst. GATHERINGS BT THE WAtBIDE. In Idaho the male populatioh exceeds the female in the ratio of thrfcb to one. A Grange of the Patroiis of Hus bandry was recently organized in Sac ramento. A building lot was recently sold in Ldndoti nt the rate «f flCo, gold, per squarb foot. Fifed. Douglass wirt refused the use of the Opera House in Lexington (Ky.) for a lecture.

The assessment of Klickitat county for the year 1873 shows a real and per sonal property valuation of $290,775. Last year the amount was $243,(>32. The schools of Chicopee (Mass.) have been greatly crippled by the with drawal of ell the Catholic children. One public school is left with only six pupils. The coinage of the Mint nt Pan Fran cisco is expected to reach $3,000,000 ior the month of May, and it is esti mated will reach u still larger amount in June. Political journals throughout the West ft're quite generally pledging themselves to oppose the re-election of any Con gressman who voted for the back-sal ary steal. The Philadelphia Piws is out in fa vor of a new party in Pennsylvania to protect the people from the railroads, the rings, and the political sharpers, who are enriching themselves at the ex pense of the people. What shall be done with a man who manifests a disposition to speculate in that glorious bird of freedom, the Amer ican eagle ? A Newburvport man threat ens to precipitate a speedy answer to the hard question, as he has captured four eagles, and promises to set them free at once on Boston Common, if $11)0 is raised and paid to liirn. NEW STEAMSHIP LINE. —The Victoria Standard of the 28th inst. contains this announcement: Upon the completion of the present contract between the Ottawa authori ties and the owners of the Pritice Alfred, wnicli will occur about the beginning; of next year, a new line of large and powerful vessels will take the place of the present sen-ice. Two steamships, 1700 tons each, named respectively the Northerner and the Southerner, and which will be able to make the trip in seventy hours, will be placed on tho route. They are owned by a private house in Quebec, and an agent of the owner is at present in town, with a view to make preliminary arrangements for the inauguration of the service. The new line has obtained the contract from the government—l4s,ooo a year—the same as is now paid the Prince Alfred, and to commence as before stated, early next year. This will be favorable news to British Columbians and people on the other side. CKBEBRO-SPINAL MENINGITIS.—A cor respondent, writing to the British Col onial, says the " above terrible complaint is making sad havoc among children in the Eastern Provinces and has reached California. It has become epidemic and is frequently fatal. Grown per sons are attacked as well as children and many die. The complaint is con tageous; and I would suggest to our medical men that, as it is a new disease, they should acquaint themselves with the best means of treating it, so when it comes we may not be entirely de fenceless." CHALLENGE TO THE CLERGY. —I hereby invite any clergyman of Olympia or Washington Territory, to meet me in a public debate, upon the divine inspira tion of the Bible. I will affirm that the Bible is chiefly a compilation from more ancient writings, wherein are veiled, in allegories, the mysteries of science. I will deny that the Bible contains any more divine inspiration than the Iliad. If I am wrong, let the clergy show it by logical argument 1 before a public audi ence. I await a response. W. H. CHANEY. May 30th, 1873. SQT We are requested to state that there will be a meeting of the friends of Temperance in Olympic Hall, on Mpnday evening next, to take meas ures for the advancement of the cause. ITELSGRAPHIC. , LATKII VROM THE ATLANTIC AT A Tito. TvrriSc Tvraada. ! WASHINGTON, lowa, May 23.—A terri ; ble tornado, accompanied with bail, passed over this county, six miles north lof this plabe yesterday afternoon. It | came front the south west and passed j out of the country, a little East ot Yat ! ton. The tornado was about half a j mile in width and tore into fragments ; every thing that came in its course. Houses, baftis, fences, were torn down, cattle and human beings were caught and whirled through the air like mere toys, and dashed to the ground with such violence as to produce instant death. Houses and bnrns were torn into fragments, and sea... '1 for miles around. The fields are cloned with large tiinliers which were drivfh into the ground at an ungle of 00°. Cuttle were actually driven head foremost into the ground. One cah scarcely con ceive the amount of devastation and violence. A school house near here was destroyed and a daughter of Henry 1 Roth el, aged 14, was carried nl>out u ' quarter of a mile from the school house, (lashed to the ground and crushed to a i jelly. Miss Smith, teacher, and a few of the scholars were hurt verv badly. ■ Mary Waters was killed and IVfrs. Gor don and a son of Alex. Gibson lie at the point of death from injuries. The tornado was baloon shaped with [ the small end towords the ground and moved at the rate of twenty miles per , hour. It commenced its career near , | Keoka, where it demolished several res ! idences. Many persons lives were saved |by hastily getting into cellars. From I an eve witness's description it is almost I a miracle that anything in its track cs- JI caped alive. He said he could see j large prices of timber hurled as though I shot from a cannon. Hail fell nine ! ; inches in circumference. Some were ! brought to this city and hours after they 1 were still as large os a hen's egg. A telegram from Keoka, last evening, • savs that several persons were killed • one mile from that place, and a child was torn in pieces. Our reports are only from a few points I on the line of hurricane and we cannot . estimate the amount of damage; but. many thousand dollars and many more 1 lives than those reported are probably lost, and no estimate can be made of the stock lost. CHICAGO, May 23. —The tornado which devastated a portion of \Vashin»\<ji Co., lowa, yesterday, appeared to have had a counterpart in MeDonough Co., Ills. A similar one caused great de struction of property, death of several persons and wounding of many oth ers. Funeral of Grit. Cautby. IxniANArous, May 23.—Funeral of Gen. Canity took place from the Bap tist < liurcli this afternoon. The Church was handsomely decorated throughout with emblems of mourning. The ser vices were conducted by Rev. Dr. Day of the Baptist Church, assisted by Revs. Aylcs. of the Methodist, Kumberof the Presbyterian and Bradley of the Epis copal Churches. LOWELL (Mass), May 2FI. —By the breaking of a platform yesterday, in front of the French Catholic Church, about 100 persons were precipitated to the sidewalk, a distance of 0 feet. Many were more or less bruised. DUBUQUE (Iowa), May 2(5.—A man, supposed to be one of the Hender fam ily, was arrested on Sunday at Eliston. He is now confined to jail at Codar Rapids, lowa. Parties acquainted with the family at Independence, Kansas, are sure of his identity. Woman Suffrage in Massachusetts. BOSTON, May 27. —The fourth annual gathering of the New England Woman Association in Tremont T**?" > attracts less attention than usual, u 'V.iw Howe presides. The speakers include O. Stearns in the course. The Massa chusetts Legislature was vigorously de nounced for its recent vote giving wom an Suffrage advocates leave to withdraw their petition. The Hnffragt Martjnliim, ROCHESTER, May Si.—The east* of Susan B. Anthony and fourteen other women voters in this city, and of the Inspectors of Election, indicted for re ceiving and counting votes of women, came up to-day before the United States District Court. All the indictments were ordered to be tried at the June term of the Circuit Court, and defend ants were released on their own re cognizance. The tax-paying women of Rochester held a second meeting to-day, prepara tory to organizing for resistance to tax ation without representation. A CRAIH. SHAMOKIN, (Pa.) May 21.—During the ceremonies of laying the corner-stone of the new Catholjc Church in this city, this morning, a portion of the temporary flooring, which had been erected for theaccommodation of the vast multitude gave way and precipitated a large num ber of persons into the basement. It is impossible at this time to give the names and number injured, but it is supposed that six are seriously hurt. Bishop Wood, of Philadelphia, and Bishop O'Hara, of Scranton, who were conducting the ceremonies at the time of the accident, assisted by twenty clergymen, were among those who went down with the falling floor, but they luckily escaped serious injury. CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, May 26.—The morn ing edition of the liulHin suspended publication. Two convicts from San Quentin, working in a carpenter shop, allowed themselves to be nailed up in two boxes, wiiich were taken, with others, to the wharf for shipment. On the wharf one of the boxes was so placed that the convict stood on his head. The posi tion wo* anything but easy. Ho stood about ten minutes jind then veiled to M>IH» workmen to lay the box down. They ran away from it in a fright, but nn officer of the prison opened the boxen and pot the fellows out. The convicts *el-B almost suffocated. Another ihstallment of Chinese ar rived to-night to reinforce those alreadv working flu the Narrow Gauge Rail road. SMRAWEN'TO, Stay 20.

LANCASTER, May 27.—At Guild Hall, on Connecticut river nix miles from here, tliis afternoon, five men in a boat attempted to pass over the rapids when the boat capsized. Three escaped ami two others, Chase and Perlo were drowned. TIIK I.AVA 11KDS. YHEKA, May 23. —From J. S. McCoy, who just came in froiu Fairchihls in*B 8 hours and 50 minutes, we learn that the Hut Creek band were brought in by Faiichild's party and surrendered to (Jen. Davis, apparently unconditional, a" 1.1 ley gave up their arms and were put under guard. The band numbered 515 men, women and children, includ ing 50 warriors; among the number Bogus Charley, Shack nasty Jim, Curly hair Doe, Frank and others, tlio best fighting men Capt. Jack had. Boston Charley is believed to be killed and Hooka Jim is hunting him. It in sup posed there are 20 warriors with Capt. Jack, whose wherenltouts is unknown though it is surmised that lie is in the Pitt river Mountains. FAIIM HIUI'S RANCH, May 24 (5 V. IF. This afternoon I visited tlio Modoe captives by permission of General Davis, and held a lengthy interview with them, in the course of which fresh and inter esting facts were developed. Bogun Charley said the Modocs were deceived by Captain Jack at every stage of tlio war, and were thoroughly disgusted with him. He had a lying tongue in his head. He promised the Indians that none of them should be hurt and failed to keep his word; but the Indi ans had never suffered for want of food. They lived on roots and cattlo in tlio lava-beds; one or the other could al ways be found. Originally Jack's porty numbered 150 men, women ami child ren. Only seventy of the bucks were old enough to tight and actually partic ipated iu the battles. The squaws as sisted in loading the guns. More Mo docs had been killed than the white peoy!. :! Several were killed and others : n llie Thomas light. Chnrley left tlaok before that, affair, and only Lncw what his friends told him. Forty-five warriors were engaged in the tight at Dry Lake, and were beaten by about the same number of soldiers. After the Modocs begiin the retreat, more soldier-; emie along. All the Modocs tell the same story. Tlioy wanted "to see the Tyee who hus tled them übout so lively, and did not give them a chance to whip hiiu. Cap tain Hasbrook, of the light battery of the Fourth Artillery, is the Tyee to whom they refer. Charley and Shack nasty Jim insist on the statement that Captain Jack is'in the upper Pitt River country. He bus twenty-five warriors, eighteen ponieß, and many squaws and children. Charley believes that Jack will surely lie captured. The captives are fed by the Government, and kept under a strong guard. No one visits them without a pass, or by the orders of General Davis. They are held here as bail for the Modoc warriors, who are supposed to be skulking in the vicinity. The children average about two to each matron, and are of various shades, fiom the rich warm brown described by Joaquin Miller, to n tolerably clean white. May 24.—Evening Boyle's camp will be the base of supplies for the cav alry operating against Captain Jack. General Davis thinks that the Modoa troubles are by-no means settled. Cap tain Jack's cohorts contain some of his best warriors—men who, like himself, are outlaws, and know that capture means death. Among the Pitt River Indians. .Tuck will undoubtedly find friend and supporters. Six years ago In ~ole five Pitt River squaws and iiiereby drove the Indians of that sec tion into a compulsory alliance. Now he may probably strive to bring tho Pitts into service. Gen. Davis has just issued an order superseding Gilleni and reinstating General Wheaton. This order gives entire satisfaction to the officers and men. The daughter of old Sheeny, a squaw well known in the neighborhood, came into camp ten minutes ago, and report ed that two Modoc women and a war rior had arrived at the wickiup, near San Francisco.
