The Viola from this port, arrived at Liverpool on,he oth. Be in time to secure y;ir masks. They have arrived at Adler's. The barkentine Webfoot ana the brig Orient each arrived at Knappton yesterday. - t The sale at JIolHen's on Saturday opened by the disposal of a number of umbrellas at nomii . 1 rates. Those extra valentines have ar . rived at Adler'-c Thev are of all sorts, and will be disposed of to order. Mr. B. Van Dusen, of this city, joined the Geo. W. Elder at this port yesterday, and proceeded inland on business. The steamship Great Republic is advertised in the San Francisco pa pers to sail for Astoria and Portland on the 20th. Purser Hughes of the Elder lias our thanks for a good file of -late pa pers. Charles; may your shadow never "row less. The cargo of the Hera turned out in sjileudid condition. She lias 400 tons on board for Astoria, and about 2100 tons for Portland. Mr. J. T. Borchers, of the Astoria "laundrv was the purchaser of lot 5, block 49, at 'the auction sale at E. Uolden's on Saturday. C. Tho Hera yesterday landed a large 1xiler and several splendid fishing boats at the new cannery of Mr. Wm. Hume, foot of Olney street. Mr. Willis, whose absence from the city for a long time past has been observed, returned by the Elder yes terday, lookuig hale and hearty. Wel come back. Cannerymen and business men n general will 'do well to examine Adler's now stock of Blank-books and Stationery which he bought in ihe 'East and "offers at less than Portland prices. The Oregon Steam Navigation company have recently purchased the lot and building originally occupied by 0. H. Page& Co., umd the Western union "telegraph company, ocihe road-! way. The Washington Capital of Janu ary 19th says "Donkey Masquerade" in the name of a sly social entcrtain mant in Oregon. Don you aro mis taken. The donkeys belong to -Washington's social status. Mr. Geo. W. Huinc who has be come largely interested at Astoria of late years, is again in our midst, and his host of friends greet him cordially. He is about to embark in other enter prises here, and we wish him all pos sible success. The schooner Alpha, under her mew ownership is -going through a pro cess of much improvement at the wharf of Peter Rnney. Bulwarks are placed on her, the rudder straightened -up, etc. She will be employed in the coasting trade. Talking about tall treesbig saw iogs, etc., -a, friend tells us of a spruce tree chopwd down in this vicinity last Areek, -the limbs from which made 28 oords of wood, which sold in Astoria at. $3 50 per cord. Nearly 100 for 'the limbs alone; what .moit Vii4- Tnnm ha ?heat-Gf-the'Willamette. There 13 a law against selling stale oysters in Oregon. The Dovenby from this port, ar rived at Glasgow on the 22d ult. Capt. Spurgeon, of Fort Canby, was registered at the Occident yester day. The Occident was the liveliest last evening that we have eeen it since the opening of winter. For Fresh Roll Butter, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Oranges and Lemons go to J. V. Gearharts. We are tflad to hear that a regu lation 'is coming into force which .provides that when people travel wiih a whole hardware store lttfi. trunk they must pay freight. Mrs. Dr. Lou "Patterson, one of the finest test mediums on the Pacific const, loEt a piece rtf jewelry in Olym pic She advertised it. This is one of the best proofs of the efficacy of advertising that can be adduced. How drrcs it happen that the mail for Forts Stevens and Canby always goes up thcTiver before it goes to the posts? Will Mr. Citsick make a note of that. We do not wish to seem the least bit obtrusive, but these things arc matters of interest to this public A few days ago our attention was attracted to a beautiful boquet of flow ers from Brookfield, in the hands of Dr. Baker. We thought what a glorious advertisement that would be of this region, were it to be placed on exhi bition in Now York or Philadelphia. Lieut. -DeLong, U. S. N., in com mand of Bennett's steam yacht, Jean nettc, has been ordered to Washing ton. The object of his journey is sup posed to be in connection with the re lief movement in aid of Professor Ntirdenskjoid's vessel, now supposed to be in peril in the Polar seas. Mr. W. T. Bodley, secretary of the Lucky (or unlucky Queen gold and silver mining company, infor ms us that at the la3t meeting, held in Roseburg last month, the mine was leased for one year. Two new direc tors were elected. Officers are the same as last year. We now look for stock in this mine to become valuable. What heels some women (coming to Oregon on the Elder, for instance, yesterday), do wear. It is the most silly and absurd notion that a boot heel must resemble a funnel to be pretty. One of those dames got her delicate foot caught in the cracks ol Squemoqhe street roadway yesterday, and she returned to .the steamer minus part of her sole. In company with Capt. J. G. Hustler we crept through the keyhole and got inside of Liberty-hall yesterday to ee what was going on. We found out this much: vThat after Stockton and Pike get through there, all the old tobacco epit, loose rafters and other repulsive things will be gone forever, und Liberty-hall interior will look as nice ae New Market theatre. Mr. Whitelaw has a new idea in regard to the hulls of the steamers Constitution and Colorado, now behv broken up by him in San Francisco. He intends to cut their ends off square, and make floating docks of them. It is calculated that each will take up vessels of 1000 tons. They are to be ready by next August. As toria would be a good point for one of them. The Rockland (Maine) Opinion of a recent Hate thus refers to an event which transpired in that city at the father of our fellow towns-man, Mr. E. R. Hawes : " The sociable at Mr. and Mrs. Wm. G. Hawes', on Tues day, was a perfect rush ; the old man sion was completely filled. All en joyed ihemselves. The disposition to keep late hours wa3 in the ascenden cy. Sorrylo see it ; bad example." After enduring a severe -mental ordeal over the question, an -eastern leader of fashion "isas t last decided that whituHrid gloves may be consistently worn, even in deep mourning, at an evening. party. .The value of thi3 information to the world cannot bo reckoned in dollars ar.daisooF the firm of Barbour Brothers, cents, nd will doubtless pass into his-! -tf vv R.rhnnr'. thread are so t crop.tothejtorjoneof tho greatest achieve-1 well known to the Columbia river fish i. It beats .the ments of tho century in wfiioh ' ormon that thev will likelyvW&e an J live. The legend of Iiurliae. It is a source of considerable satisfac tion to us to know that we have critical and even classical readers. On Sunday we published a brief paragraph invit ing information respecting Lurline. in view of the fact that it was so'much esteemed in this portion of the conti nent at present, that poets vwere nam ing pieces Lurline; artists were dres-, singthe "Lurline" m 'character a't mas querades; and one of our capitalists had christened one of the -finest stea mers afloat in these northern waters Lurline. Our-corrcspondent requests that we surpress his name from the public, 'but promises to send us a few more gems for The Astorian this $'ear, -making it the leading family paper of Oregon. Following is THE LEGEND OF LUItLIXE. Der noble Bitter Hugo Von Scliwilleusanfenstein, llotle oud in it slipeer und helmet, Und he cooms to der punks of Rhein. Und oop dor rose a mermaid, ; Vot don'd got nodings on ; Und she says, Oh Bitter llujio, Vere you goes mit yourzelf alone? Den he says.

Prize to Le Awarded. For the benefit of all thoee who in tend masking at the coming masquerade-ball, we aro authorized to ay that there will be a. splendid prize of fered by the manager for the best sustained character, lady or gentle man. The committee will be chosen fr6m the audience and the prize awarded just before unmasking, at 11:30 p. -h.

Gin'der, next door to Tnc As toria officer-takes pleasure in inform ing the ladies of Astoria and vicinity that she has just opened a well selected stock of Ladles underwear, and Chil dren's and Infants goods, to which she invites the attention of purchasers. vLeut. Everett, of Fort -Stevens, enlivened our sanctum with'his pres n3 for an hour yesterday. From him we gleaned some interesting facts relative to the 'treatment of Indians, affairs in Alaska, etc., which it will be our pleasure to present to the public. . The steamer St. Paul, now in San Francisco, is being literally torn to pieces, for the purpose of altering and improving her. Martin Bulger has the management of tho job, and to gether with like labor on the Alexan der and Victoria (late Bolivar) he has his time pretty well occupied. m Referring to an article in another column from the Belfast XIrelana) News, it should be stated that Mr. JohnD. Barbour is the senior member of' the arm ot William BftfoonrSons, "miJon r,-r mills Tjlsbuni. Ireland, interest in rs&ding ich items. AROUND THE CITY. Valentines, all kinds, C.
