AtDEUBEOOE Pnorcirrv. The sale of
Alderbrook property at E. C. Holden's
this afternoon is deserving of more than
passing notice. Situated as Astoria is.
it is the natural desire of the frugal and
thrifty, and saving, to invest their earn
ings in a manner that will bring them as
Rured benefit. To anyone who has a lit
tle money to spare, tho sale this after
noon affords a most desirable opioriuu
ity. The constantly increasing growth
of tho city, the new enterprises in con
templation, determines a purchase of
real estate ol the naturo offered as a good
Wood Business. Tho increasing pop
ulation of Astoria occasions increasing
demands in every lino of trade. In no
way is this more apparent than in the
augmentation of tho wood business.
This season, it is estimated, that there
are 300 men engaged in the business of
supplying wood to Astoria. It consists
principally of spruce limbs, vine maple,
alder and fir, and comes in scows from
Gray's River, Deep River, Lewis and
Clarke's, Knappa and elsewhere, princi
pally from the "Washington Territory
Hide". It is a hard life, and the men en
gaged in it well earn what they make
New Couktt Seat. Word comes that
tho bill has passed the Washington Ter
ritory legislature transferring the county
seat of "Wahkiakum from Cathlaraet to
Skamokawa. This will bo a big benefit
to our Wahkiakum county neighbors.
The greater part of tho population of
that county will find it much more con
venient to go to Skamokawa than the
present county seat to transact their
business. Information is also furnished
that Mucklo Bros.? of St. Helens have
bought the mill site just below Monl-
fomery's mill at Skamokawa, paying
1,000 therefor, and they intend putting
up a saw mill "next season. Lots are al

to St. Mary's hospital, where he shortly
after died, owing to the serious nature of
his illness. Tho captain says the hos
pital is one of the finest he has seen for
years; that one might travel for thou
sands of miles and not find one so com
plete in all its departments, so carefully
and satisfactorily kept, and so pleasant
for patients. He speaks highly of the
sisters who have charge of it, and states
that charges are very reasonable, and
that it is a pity ship masters are not gen

the Astoria hospital.
A Portland Justice Court.
Rumors were afloat yesterday to the
effect that an-encounter had taken place
on Saturday out at Keegan's court, coin
munly known as the "Court of Death,"
in which Aleck and Jack Keegan engaged
in a life-or-death strugglo, and the judge
came out first best. Inquiry failed to
develop the minutta? of the struggle, but
sufficient information was gained to war
rant public mention of the fact, to show
how a certain ono of the justices' courts
is now run in this city and by what class
Aleck and Jack have been at swords'
points for a week past, and on Saturdav
the culmination of their ill-feeling was
reached in a personal encounter m the
saioon aajoimng tno vnounai ot justice.
It was nip and tuck for a while, both be
ing powerful men and evenly matched as
to size and strength, bnt tho judge find
ing his wind about to fail him and a fair
prospect of Jack's mopping the walk with
his legal carcass, whipped out si knife
and inflicted upon his victorious brother
three or four stabs, that sent him to
grass, and may cost hini his life. Jack
was immediately conveyed to his room
and a physician summoned, who sewed
up his wounds and carefully attended
him during the entire day. "Strenuous

They are industrious and encrsretic and

pheasants and the fat of tho land.
Messrs. Shaw, Suis, Periiia and Davis
assisted by Shaw Jr., and Louis Hcrsey,
are doing all thoy can do to promote edu

good school houses.
It would bo desirable to keen these
schools open as long as possible. With
