SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1876. Physiology in Our Schools. The Oregon Educational Monthly of a recent date contains a sensible article on the subject of" Physiology in Schools." It deplores the lack of competent instruction in this branch of learning in the common schools, and advances several sound and well timed arguments in support of its position. There is no doubt what ever but that the present generation is too prone to neglect this all-import ant study. " The proper study of mankind is man." Pope never utter ed a greater truth, and a more thor ough realization of its force by the present generation would go tar towards hastening on the millennial era of the race. The details of every day living, the thoughts, feelings, actions and aspirations must all have their appropriate physiological basis upon which the proper development of the young must largely depend. Children can understand the elements of this science, will be interested therein, and the study will implant in their mi...

Prevention and Care. It is astonishing, to say the least, that everywhere "cure" is recognized be fore* prevention. The old adage "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," seems to have been forgotten, or at least disregarded by the mass of humanity. Men will search through out the range of the whole phariua copote, and enst about them all their lifetimes for some chemical or vegetable compound which shall be an effectual cure for some of the "ills which flesh is heir to," while if they should spend half the time in looking for the cause and prevention of this disease, the suf ferings of humanity would be mitigated to un incomparably greater degree. And when such a medicine is found, it very seldom effects a cure. Even when the" cause nnd prevention are known, men seem to overlook the fact th it the suffering consequent upon the exertion nml self-denial necessary for preven tion of disease is loss than that which follows the neglect to apply the preven tive. This substituti...

TEBBITORIAL. Elk hunting is the popular amuse ment on the Willapa river now days. They go in droves and are slaughter ed like beeves. A duck shooting company, with a capital of one hundred million, has been organized at Oysterville. So says the Astorian. The Chinamen of Olympia fired 80 pounds of fire-craakers on their new year's day. Two hundred peo ple went forth to witness the display. Colorado has a sensation in which Mr. H. H. Honore and other gentle men prominent in public life figure conspicuously. They are charged with an attempt to corrupt the judi ciary of that Territory for the pur pose of adding to their own private fortunes. Messrs. Franklin Mathias and A. A. Denny, of Seattle, with the wid ow, Mrs, Mary Miller, were named in the will of the late Gen. W. W. Miller as executors of the estate.

Mnrryat nn • Lever. (.lose upon n quarter of n century has passed since Marryat died ; more than a quarter of a century passed since the 1 lirst of Lever's novels appeared, and the books of each writer continue to hold their own. More than this, those who read those books first as boys, can turn to them again, now that they are men of j middle age, with all the /est and pleas ore that attended their first perusal. This one simple fact is the highest test of truth to nature and fidelity to life to which a writer of fiction can be submit ted. In his •• Diary in America," Mar ryat tells tlte follow ing charming story : " I lead" this morning a purchase at a store, which an intelligent, little boy brought home for me.

SATURDAY. APRILI S, 1876. The Chinese Problem Of late the San Francisco dispatches are principally concerned with the agi tation of the Chinese question. While it is not a new thing for the laboring classes of that city to occasionally "go for that heathen Chinee," there is some thing about this last movement that is decidedly portentous of the approach of a more radical measure than has hitherto been adopted in that state. It is bard formauy people living isolated as they must necessarily be in the woody regions of this northern country to realize the extent to which tin's mon golian element lias become infused into the population of California and especi ally of San Francisco. They cannot therefore appreciate the intensity of ihe feeling that exists on tbe part of cer tain of the laboring claries towards their moon eyed brethren. While 't is not true that the chinaman has entirly irsurped any particular branch of busi ness, or line of industry, he has cheap ened nearly all classes...

The Victoria Colonist says British Columbia will be largely repeesent ed at the Centennial.

Dai ins Cragsmen. The coasts of Norway, which are in some places more rugged and grander in scale than any of those in Scotland or the Hebrides, exhibit the characteristics of cliff fowling with remarkable com pleteness. On some of the magnificent 1 cliffs two modes of getting at the birds and their nests are adopted; from the 1 sea beneath if the high! to be climbed is not too great, and from the odge of the cliff above in other cases. When the men see their work fairly before them, as viewed from below, they approach the j foot of the cliff in a boat. A pole, twen ty or twenty-four feet long, has an iron hook at one end. This hook is looped into the strong waistband of the fowler's ilress, ami he is lifted or pushed up by men m the boat or from any ledge of rock Mat enough to sustain them; the lilting is like that adopted by a butcher when he hooks up a leg of mutton in front of his shop, but the fowler aids his own ascent partly byhishandsand partly by a bird pole which he carrie...

SATURDAY, A'.'IIIT.! Uk 1878. Dairy Prodtn <. One of the most important pro. ductiont of every farming commu nity is thai of the dairy. Hut in this country, we believe this industn has not receiv ed the attention it demands at the hands of our tanners. It is natural tint this is so. for in a new country, sparsely settled, .md with limited communication with the out side world, there i- not that demand for dairy productions that there is in older communities; this is true of nl » most any production, but particularly is it true with the tlairy. The far- , mer turns his attention to raising stock foi beef, which upon loot can be moved from one place to anoth er, at ;t small expense, and supplied to the trading posts, military forts and the mines, at a handsome profit.
