District Court DccUIon.
In tho U. S. District Court at Portland,
ast Tuesday, Judge Deady rendered a
decision in the case of Captain Flavel et
il. vs. The Pacific Coast Steamship com
pany, wherein the plaintiff claimed that
C. H. Prescott, tho managing agent of
the defendant, should show cause why
certain uionej's deposited with him by
the consignees of the uueens cargo,
should not bo brought into court, to an
swer the exigency of the suit. The state
ment of the point at issue was as lollows:
A shin and carco were saved from a
common peril after a considerable jetti
son of the latter, and allowed by thesalv-
ors to proceed to their destination, where
tho saved cargo was delivered by tue
master or agont to tho consignees with
out contribution for salvage or jettison,
but on the deposit of eacli consignee of a
sum of money equal to 20 per cent of tho
valuo of the cargo delivered to him "to
cover treneral average' and tho execution
of a bond for the payment of his pro
portion of tlio 'Josses and expenses' con
senuent upon such peril." Judge Deady
hold thut tho salvage service lwing for
the benefit of both snip and cargo, tne
expense thereof constituted a general
average; that m a suit against tue snip
and cargo for salvage tho libelants might
elect to treat such deposit as so far a
substitute for the cargo delivered and re
quire the agent of the vessel, under ad
miralty rule 33, to bring the samo into
court to answer mo exigency oi sucn sun.
ft was accordingly ordered.that the pe
tition of the plaintiff be granted, and
the amount, some $30,000, bo paid into
the court by Mr. Prescott by Mon

'The Tjind Belones to the People'
Deep Rives. Dec. 15, 1833.
Notwithstanding all the lessons of his
tory or the practical teachings of experi
ence, men will, unfortunately, forget the
one or ignore tho other in their eagerness
to gratify some paltry pleasure, or in
dulge their apathy for the public weal.
The true American pulse has evidently a
healthy throb in Astoria. The pro
gramme of Tjik AsToniix and of the
Astoria Chamber of Commerce com
mends itself to tho approbation of every
man who has studied the laud question,
and who has realized the nature of the
evUs that flow from land monopoly. Tho
articles m The Astobiax and the memo
rial to congress of the chamber of com
merce will certainly tend to hasten
prompt action in this matter.
The land question is rising out of the
slough of forgetfulness. The fact that!
me ngai oi every rauu iu lue u-a ui iuiiu
is being abridged, and vast tracts given
to railroad rings and speculators of every
form, shade and degree, through dishon
est administration of the lawg, what
concerns the public. A few years ago,
hardly a man opened his mouth about
these' swindling land grants, depriving
unborn generations of Americans of their
heritage or birthright in tho soil. The
newspapers resembled so many Delphine
oracles in more than one particular. Con-!
gress bartered away for so much palm-oil
to a ring of railroad kings, who palm- j
oiled their hands, the imperial heritage j
of the people without ev?u making them
fulfil their contract.
These railroad grants were apparently i
ested rights that no man thought of dis
turbing. Though such grants were great
robberies, they lay slumbering in secur
ity, except when now and again roused
for a second by the vain crie3 of justice,
or by the firm stand of such men as were
in favor of either forfeiture or building
the rauroad. well, all that is altered
now. If not in the heart, the land ques
tion is at least in tho mouth of all men
when they speak. "Whoever writes on
public matters now, cannot ignore the

What We Eat.
It is estimated that the state of Massa
chusetts does not raise enough wheat
during one year to supply the tables of
that commonwealth jvith bread for ono
day, wliich is only another way of saying
that the residents of tho old Bay state
have to buy what they eat. In this re
spect they resemble Astorians. We of
Astoria have to buy nearly all we eat. In
some respects we are as islanders who de
pend on vessels for what their own insu
lar country does not afford. Tinio and
again have Astorians had to go with
light dinners, not that they lacked the
wherewith to buy, but because the peas
end the cabbage, the celery and the
sauces, the fruit and other concomitants
were tossing in the hold of the vessel out
side the bar. Whether wise or unwise :
whether productive of prosp?rity or the
reverse: whether necessary or not. the
fact is patent that nearly all we eat is '
brought to us, and we pay well for it. j
The profit goes mo3tly to outside parties.
Our merchants make very little, some- j
time1) barely save themselves, oftentimes :
lose. Especially is this the case withl
fruit, etc., which is brought, here at a
high rate of freight, and sold bv our
grocers more as a matter of accoaiuioda- i
tion than with a hope of making a profit. ;
The high, prices tlint Astonans pay for
food has Ieen the subject of considerable
comment in theso columns. The reason
for the high prices may lc brietly titated :
demand greater than the supply, and
though when one has to pay fifty cautaj
for a little beefsteak, ninety-five centi a i
roll for butter, and more for a dozen of !
eggs warranted eighteen carat? fine than
for the hen that laid, them, yet. tue-1
knowledge that tho seller has such a i
slight margin of profit is illustrative of i
the proposition stated above. .

Till then we must depend upon Salem
or Albina. For hpni, the Astorian hps to
depend on the Willamette valley, though
fair articio of (Jalifornia ham is
brought here. The best ham, wo are
constrained to say, comes from the oast,
and by tho time it gets to the Astoriau's
breakfast table it costs enough to justify
the expectation of a prime cut, tweuty
ono cents a pound not being an outside
figure. Fresh moat is extremely high,
and as it is one of tho principal articles
of purchase, the price that ono has to
pay for it is noticeable. Iho Astona
butchers have tho reputation of furnish
ing neater, cleaner, fatter and juicier
meat than tho jnurvevors of anv other
city in the northwest, and to meet the
demands of their customers, situated as
they aro down hero in tho extreme west
ern part of the state, often taxes their
abilities to the utmost. They have to
pay a high price for cattle and sheep and
all things considered aro not getting rich
very rapidly at the present prices,
flutter and eggs aro on tho borderline
between necessities and luxuries. Like
other extravagances they come high, but
people will have them. As to vegetables,
we are better supplied. l'otatoes, carrots,
parsnips, turnips, etc. of splendid qual
ity are brought from Clatsop, and from
across the river, and find ready salo. Ap
ples come down the river, and this sea
son are scarce, and consequently dear,

figure. In other departments of the fruit
line there is a good deal bought in the
way of dried and canned fruit, particu
larly the latter. Though Astoria is head
quarters for the finest salmon in the
world, jet there is comparatively Iittlo of
the canned article consumed uere, partly
because wo get such a surfeit of it when
it is finest and freshest in tho spring. On
the grocers shelves are mackerel, oodlish,
trout, wlutefish, etc.- which find their
purchasers on the ground that variety is
the spice of life. In game and fresh
fish, however, Astoria excels. Through
out the year we havo. an ever changing
variety of the finest fish, and in the ifa.ll
and winter months the stores aro never
devoid of fresh game of all varifties.
