Tho ttvamer Noi lhcriicr, Cujit. W, L
Dull, left San Fruiioiieo on Wediiesduy,
Jan. 4, and the next day about livo o'clock
in the uflcrnooii, ttruek a f imken rock about
two miles Ill-low Dliiul' Itecf, on the count
of Culiforiiin, Ci.pt. Dull went below, and
found the vuscl filling very fait, awl inline
dintely put all hflinls to work pumping; but,
finding the water gaining on thcnl, he
headed the vessel for hind, uliout two milcii
distimt. At the tiino the vessel struck, it
was a perfect calm, nwl the chock was
scarcely noticed Ly any one but the officers.
The water gained on the pumps at the rite
of on Inch a minute, It is evident that the
vessel struck a nlmrp rock, which made a
terrible rent in tho bottom, After being
headed for land, she grounded about three
huud.fed yards from shore, and in the gale
inui m,oruy loiiowcu, soon went to pieces.
Thirty-six lives were lost seventeen pas
sengers, uml nineteen of the crew, Among
the pii!s"i:gers lost was Cnpt. Swcit.cr, of
Cnneiiiiili, who was on board, with his wife,
and the body of their little child which hud
died on the downward pnssngo, Mr. T.
V. Smith, of this city, wus also on board,
but Managed to savo himself. Several
ladies were on board, but one of whom wus
lo:jt, Miss Gregg, who positively refused to
leave the wreck unless her brother, in whose
charge she was, could go with her. Mr.
French, tho Dr.it officer, lost his life in try
ing to rescue her from the wreck. lie had
been twice on shore, but put off the third
time to try to save her.

Map of Ono
We have been presented I')' H. J. MlCop
inlck, V.m., of Portland, with a most beau
tiful map of our young State, which was
compiled from the latent and most rdiublo
Government Survey Ly J. A. I'owntill,
Fxp, of Oregon City. In :. It is three
and a half hy five and ft half feet, Is Well
mounted on tollers, and has heen declared
by thu Kustern press to be the handsomest
j State map in the I 'uion. The inurgin of
the map is cmlnllished with splendid views
of the principal towns in Oregon, namely
Salem, Jacksonville, Kugtno City, Dalles,
Oregon City, Corvulliis, nml Portluml, and
tho best reprcviitntiou of tho Fulls of the
Willuini'tto ever made. Theie views were
nil engraved from drawings made by M. de
Girardin, rxpr(Jy for this purpose. It is,
indeed, " nn ornament thut nhould adorn
every household in Oregon," uml reflects
front credit upon Mr. McCoruiick, the en
terprising publisher, who hus been ut great
expense in getting it up. The limps can be
had in this city of Mr. Fleming, nt the Post
Office. Price, live dollars. The price is
so low that no family In Oregon can well
afford to be without a copy. liy all menus,
have one of theso maps hanging up where
your little 'shavers' can daily sic it, and
they will nc(iiire soiuu idea of tho " way
the land lays'' in Oregon, which they might
not otherwise get soon. It would also
provo of considerable benefit too large
number of older h'-ads.
J. W. St I.UV.IX. We believe there is
no news agent in this great Kcpublic who
has, for tho lust six or eight years, exhibit
ed more energy in his line of business than
Mr. J. W. Sullivan, of San Francisco.
lie is the most enterprising of news men,
and has done more to promptly distribute
the latest intelligence from ull parts of the
world to every town and hamlet on the Pa
cific slope of this Continent, thu Sandwich
Islands, Australia, Ac, than any other man
now living.- It is a common occurrence
with him to charter a steamer in Sun Fran
cisco on the arrival of an Atlantic steamer,
after the regular mails have been closed, at
an expense of from one to five thousand
dollars, to carry the latest journals to Sac
ramento, in order thut his express agents
starting for thu mines might get them ahead
of the mail.
t&" We take pleasure in directing the
attention of our numerous friends to the
advertisement in our coliiini s, of Sands' I
Sarsnparilhi, which may be nsed as occasion
requires, with bendit to every one. A

I have been hi jour Interesting State,
have Leeii struck with one great obvious
want, to develope Its resources the wuut
of a lurgi! increase to your lutioiing popu
lation. How Is this to be obtained?
I think the ni'itit vfl'i tnul measure to no
coniplisli this object, would hu thu appoint
iiient of tin Emigration Committee, with nu
nctive, intelligent, judicious President, who
should take the lead in thu circulation of
documents in the States, in setting forth the
ndvaiitiiges of Oregon for settlement, point
ing out the proper routes to reach this val
ley, In befriending tho emigrants on their
arrival, In directing them to portions of the
Stute where wild lauds or cultivated farms
cun be obtained, where employment can bo
had, where temporary shelters can be found,
so that when emigrants arrive hero, they
shall not be deprived of ull their means in
sustaining themselves a few wciks thus
causing a dMIkc to the country nwl its in
A thor' u.di and liberal arrangement for
the encouragement of migration to thi
point for the employment of emigrants on
their arrival here, or for o.nt.ng out lo
emigrants melius which shall rendir them
comfortable, after their long and toilsome
journey will give confidence to conic, ninl
will insure tho best feelings of the eurgmiif
toward the population of thu State and to
the State its. If.
Arc the people of this State (0 iiiik-IkI
voted lo their own personal interests ns not
lo realize the necessity of the meiMire
herein proposed? There is always a print
moving population in thu Western States.
Would it not be wisu to divert the current
of this moviii'r mass to Oregon? Would
it not pay, even as a money consideration,
for some attention to this uia.ter?
I make those suggestions, because I think
a system based upon them would greutly
bent fit this State, and would also ultimate
ly confer even superior benefits on the p'o-
pie that would be induced to cast their lot
with you. s. r.

France ano Enci.and. The London
Times has again n disquieting article on the
relations of England and Franco. It com
plains that in France every instrument that
cun work on public opinion is being cm
ployed to raise a violent spirit of animosity
against England and the nation at large,
and that the army arc taught to loo!; on a
war with England ns not remote. The
Times cannot discover nny serious question
nt issue between tho two governments, and
affirms that it is the power of tho Emperor
alouo to put nn end to the state of tilings
daily becoming more serious; and if ho does
not do so, there is a reasonable ground for
drawing a gloomy inference from his silence.
The London Morning Star says that
there is a plot on foot which contemplates
n crime of no smaller magnitude than the
plunging of England and Franco into w ar.
The London Post denounces tho article
that's nil. Mr. Morgan guaranties thor- Jin the Times ns a wanton and wicked alarm,

Ed. Argns; I happened on a ftr.iy num
ber of the Albany Smut Machine, the
Dolazoiiian, alias the Oregon Democrat,
the other day, und not having road anv of
its lucubrations the desire to get a glance
at it overcame ull f clings of repugnance.
In ruiiiiiii'r my eye over its columns I saw
Iiii.-h Bush Bush blazing up every
where. Well, us I had often heard Dela
on glorify Bu.ih and Bush glorify Dol.i.on
mtil one might have supposul they were
a most precious pair of angels, 1 proceeded
to road in order to sec how they rogird.-d
each other at this pns -nt.
Now, Mr. Editor, 1 do honestly nver
that I really did read the whole of the first
article on the first page, mid .1 fee f. sure yon
will give me a credit mark for the yW that
enabled me to do it. While reading I took
notes, and leaving a small margin far mis
takes, the following will give a cwrect idea
of the gist of the whole mutter What
chntle, noble, rlraiiiit language our quail-1
(loin political nngcls liave ucqu red by long
praotic Bush is kid up ns 'perfidious,'
(2) 'mercenary,' (:!) ' npostate,' () ' blood
sucker,' 'dirty,' ' damnation,' ' blood-hoiiml,'
scurrilous,' 'hyena-liko,' 'vindictive, ' 'hate,'
(3) 'vilify,' (2) 'madman,' 'dictator,' (2)
impudent,' 'black-guard,' 'villainous,' 'ty
iant' (Ii). Th: figures appended show the
froqu Micy with which each of theso lovely
epithets is employed.
Satisfied with that page, I turned to the
second nud under n bush I saw 'political
demagogues,' 'asses,' mid 'knaves.' But
having exposed my moral sensibilities to
this amount of impurity, I rolled the pnpi
up, and passed it to where nil such 'moil
mils' should bo sent direct from tl.c office
1 had nearly forgotten, however, to say
that the w ord 'Keoknk' was mixed up with
Bush ns a source of trouble to the opera
tors of the machine. Keokuk seems to
all'oct Delazon something after the manner
of tho 'Panama fever.' ' What can the

Timothy or Hi'nls ivuss.
En Awirs: This valuable grass should
lie cultivated more largely than it is at
present. Somu fanners complain that it
will not grow on tlieir farms. M
cm farmers often sow the seed without any
, .umn.m- icsuiis. io use a phrase with
iiiem, nicy say it docs not take" that I
(iocs not start well. Sometimes wlmn H,
i -en germinates well, it will be killed by

Timothy makes capital fodder, and if one
sowing ia. is, liners should not abandon
ns cultivation. I won!;! suggest that a
field for timothy should be plowed very
deep, s.iy ten inches, so thnt the soil will
sumo, a neavy drought, and also will stand
heavy rams for deep plowing will be a
benefit in both cases.
These aie merely hints that may be re
tloctcd ou by your farmer rin.L.n. .
