Does Portland esire a Harbor
of Refuge ?
Portland, March, 1879.
Permit me to give a few facts to substan
tiate my opinion that Port Orford is not,
and Cape Foulweather is, the proper place
for the construction of the proposed "har
bor of refuge " for the commerce of this
coast. The official estimate of the cost of
construction of a breakwater at Port Orford,
to enclose 90 acres, is $3,427,000 ; to enclose
100 acres at Cape Foulweather, 656,251 20.
Mr. Habersham states in his report that the
Foulweather harbor is so naturally well pro
tected from the most dreaded southeast
winds that the opinion was expressed by the
seamen who made the survey that if buoys
were placed to define the entrance, vessels
of any draft could run in and find safe an
chorage ; and this opinion is substantiated
by the fact that during the recent severe
storm persons who were then at Foulweath
er say that while the south side of the cape
(exposed like fort Urtord) was lashed into
a fury, the north side presented an area of
fifty acres as smooth a3 a mill pond, covered
with innumerable sea fowl.
The river and harbor appropriation bill,
passed by congress (of which $200,000 has
been allowed for our harbor of refuge), is
generally denounced by the press as extrav
agant. We, therefore, cannot expect more
than a like amount to be appropriated each
year. Jf $200,000 be expended each year at
iron Urtoru, for sixteen years, we will have
a harbor (in the language of the report)
sumcient for present necessities. If the
$200,000 be expended at Foulweather, in
placing buoys and commencing the sea wall
as proposed by Engineer Habersham's re
port, a harbor " sufficient for pr sent require
ments can be available the coming winter,
and the harbor can be enlarged year after
year as the needs of cotrmerce demand or
the bounty of government allows.
I nave confined myself to what I believe
to be a plain statement of facts, that cer
tainly must have been unknown to the Port
land Board of Trade at its meeting last week.
Fort Orford. has long been talked of as a
point for a harbor of refuge, whereas Foul
weather harbor was altogether unknown un
til first entered and surveyed last summer
by R. A. Habersham, of this city, acting as
U. S. assistant engineer. Judging from
their action in the matter, I opine the gen
tlemen of the board had never read his re
port. They should hasten to inform them
selves, nndo their action, and leave the selec
tion (as congress has wisely done) to the un
biased and well-informed judgment of the
board of U. S. engineers.

FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT.
New York, March 6, 1879.
THE LAST OF THE OLD SIACT FIRM.
The house of Macy is probably as widely
known as any in America, and its reputation
was won by one cent. If any other house
sold a certain grade of goods at one dollar,
Macy marked his at 99 cents. Soinatimes for
odditv's sake his prices would be $12.01 for
a given article, or $13.99. A price at even
money was as rare as an honest politician,
and this peculiarity, more than any other
cause, probably, brought his store into noto
riety and him into a handsome fortune.
But the grim Book-keeper has been balanc
ing accounts rapidly with the old firm of R.
H. Macy & Co. Two years ago Mr. Macy
died in Paris, leaving an inebriate son on an
allowance of a few hundreds annually. Not
long after Mr. Laforge, the second partner,
died, and this has now been followed by the
death of Mr. Valentine, tne sole remaining
uartner ot the original nrni. Ihe son aiiud
to also died a few weeks ago. The immense
business now passes into the hands of Mr.
Webster, who came into the firm after Mr.
Macy's death, and suddenly finds hit jelf
master of a retail business often amounting
to 50,000 in a single day.
" WET TO ORDER."
After every large dry goods fire the small
er class of retailers get up a tremendous ran
on " wet eoods from the late fire ;" and
even larger houses have done more or less in
this particular line, it nas long Deen amys
tery to some people how so much goods
could be damaged in any tire without break -
ins all the insurance companies. Some
other people didn't stop to speculate intel
lectuallv. but proceeded vigorously to finan
cial speculation in these goods, thinking that
. - , L' L A -, 1
materials WIUUU were uam anu mrty, wicn-
out attempting to hide their shame, must be
cheap. The recent heavy fires gave fresh
impetus to this particular trade; and though
wiseacres blinked and winked and hinted
about good chances to work off unsalable
coods, the dear people were blind to blinks

It was left for an Eighth avenue Israelite
to let this exceedingly black cat out of her
bitherto very shady bag. He had neither
been to auction and bought real wet goods ;
nor pulled out his unsalable merchandise,
wet it and dragged it about his floor3, and
when he saw the people flocking past his
store to those where the wet goods game
was being played, bis rage knew no bounds.
He resolved to give the coup tie grace to the
whole humbug, and took his revenge on his
enterprising rivals and the flocking people
at one swoop, by painting a huge sign for
his store tront, bearing the inscription :
" Goods wet to order, at short notice ! "
A SUBTERRANEAN MONSTER.
Down beneath the pavements on Spruce
street, there is panting away, day and night,
every hour in the year, a huge iron slave,
running his giant arms out beneath side
walks, across streets, under massive build
ings and blocks, grinding away Samson-like
in his dark prison house, a perfect marvel of
strength, and without a parallel on the Con
tinent it on the lilobe. lie grips with one
of his long fingers the Bullock presses of
Horace Greeley s greatest monument, and
throws off 4,000 Tribunes an hour from each
of the several presses under the famous Tall
lower. With another, he grasps the light
ning presses of the paper which " shines for
all," and prints a hundred thousand Suns
before you have tasted your morning coffee.
Down bpruce street runs another giant arm,
which turns out the monstrous edition of ihe
New York Ledger ; another drives the presses
of the Sunday Dispatch, another runs down
into John Scott's cellar and prints over forty
weekly papers of lesser fame, lo both
sides of Spruce, both sides of Frankfort,
both sides of William and one side of Beek
man, yet other arms stretch out and run
hundreds of devices for printing, ruling, per
forating and binding in that busy nest of
types and cardboards fronting on and adja
cent to Printing House Square.
His hrc3 never go out : almanacs and
clocks, seasons and oycles, dynasties and
electoral commissions are not for him. He
heard the booming guns at Sumpter and
told the world what they meant, but his
panting quickened not. Lee thundering at
the gates Gettysburgh and Lee surrendering
at Appomattox were one to this slave. He
heard the tramp of armed men above his
head in '61, and listened in '65 to the heav
ier tread of thinner ranks bearing back
those tattered, riddled banners, which make
the veriest dotard's blood tingle in his veins
as he looks : he saw Tweed's daughter wear
ing diamond's for shoe buttons, and looking
again saw the dethroned robber eying by
inchs in a felon's cell, nor this nor that
meant anything to him. Old Time, to whom
we mortals bow most reverentially, looks
down through these grimy gratings and gets
uo more attention than a contemptuous pun
ot steam is his laee. lnis is the felave ot
Commerce not of Time ; he knows no law
but the demands of Trade and acknowledges
no master else !
Twenty vears ago a printer owning a
steam engine which supplied more power
than he needed, began furnishing power to
his neighbors, vlney quickly found it cheap
er to take a shaft from him than buy and
operate an engine for tuemselves, and the
business grew rapidly. This is the very
heart ot the printing business ot ootham.
Within a space of eighty acres is more capi
tal invested in types and their accessories
than in half of all America. It was a rare
field for such an enterprise. A stock com
pany was formed with $80,000 capital, every
dime of it represented in the engines, boil
ers snd shafting. Great papers like the
Tribune, Sun and Ledger tound it cheaper to
buy power than to generate it, and though
they have engines of their own, they hold
them only as reserves in case of accident.
No accident ha3 occurred these twenty
years. A tire pump oi immense power nas
been attached to these engines, a thousand
feet of hose are always ready for use ; men
are at hand every hour of the twenty-four,
and repeatedly have turned the full power
of these mighty engines upon the pumps,
and put out dangerous fires before even our
elert Fire department could reach the spot.
The chained slave has saved his master
nearly half a million of money in this way,
to say nothing of the averted disorganization
of business from a fire.
A woman, notwithstanding she is the
best of listeners, knows her business, and
it is a woman's business to please. I don't
say that it is not her business to vote, but
I do say that the woman who does not please
is a false note in the harmonies of nature.
She may not have youth or beauty, or even
manners, but she must have something in
her voice or expression, or both, which it
makes you feel better disposed towards
your race to look at or listen to. She knows
that as well as we do ; and her first ques
tion after you have been talking your soul
into her consciousness is, did 1 please ? A
woman never forgets her sex. She would
rather talk with a man than an angel any
day. Womanly women are very kindly
critics, except to themselves and now and
then to their own sex. ihe less there is ol
sex about a woman, the more she is to be
dreaded. But take a real woman at her
best moments well dressed enough to be
pleased with herself, not so resplendent as
to be a show and a sensation, with the vari
ed outsie'e influences that set vibrating the
harmonic notes of her nature stirring in the
air about her and what has social life to
compare with one of those vital interchanges
of thought and feeling with her that makes
an hour memorable? What can equal her
tact, her delicacy, her subtlety of apprehen
sion, her quickness to feel the changes of
temperature, as the warm and cool -currents
of thought blow by turns? At one moment
she is microscopically intellectual, critical,
scrupulous in judgement as au analyst's bal
ance, and the next as sympathetic as the op
en rose that sweetens the wind from what
ever quarter it finds its way to her bosom.
It is m the hospitable soul ot a woman that
a man forgets he is a stranger, and so be
comes natural and truthful, at the same
time he is mesmerized by all those divine
amerences mat make ner a mistery and a
bewilderment. Atlantic Monthly
The " invisible patch " on boots and shoes
is a thing that the owner of dilapidated fan
cy feet coverings delights in. But to get
one put on by the cobbler costs nearly as
much as by the old way. This need not be,
for any boy can put them on himself in the
following way, given by a correspondent of
the Country Gentleman :
Take gutta percha, half ounce ; bi-sul-phuret
carbon, two ounces. In a wide
mouth bottle put the two together, and
shake occasionally until the gutta percha is
dissolved and it is ready for use. When the
patch is to be applied, scrape the boot or
shoe until the blacking is off and the leath
er is a little rough, On this dust with fine
resin, minutest quantity ; serve the patch
the same way. Then spread a little of the
cement on both the shoe and the patch, first
having shaved the edges of the patch. Ap
ply like court plaster, and smooth with a
warm spoon or iron, and the shoe will soon
be ready to wear. A few hours will harden
the cement, when properly done the patch
will be invisible, and will last as long as the
shoe. This cement is waterproof. The gut
ta percha, shaved in thin slices, is kept in
uuu ruDuer stores lor tne aoove purposes.
Ten cents' worth will do the work of a fam
ily for a long time. The bi sulphuret of
carbon is sold by druggists, and will cost
nve or ten cents an ounce, ihe smell,
which is oflensive, soon passes off.
While a nurse girl was recently drawing a
DaDe along Aitred street she was approached
by a queer-looking old chap, whosa mouth
was working as if he wanted to bite some
body. He halted the cab, chuckled to the
child, and finally said to the nurse :
"I used to be just such a little augel my
self. Dear me, but how I want to kiss
him ! "
" But yon can't," replied the girl.
' ' I didn't expect to for nothing, of
course," he continued, feeling in his pocket
"Here is twenty-five cents, young miss. J
used to have to pay half a dollar for kissing
em but babies are down now, long -with
She looked around took the money, told
him to wipe off his mouth, and he gave the
child a smack which sounded like a dish-pan
starting for down cellar. An old lady came
around the corner as he straightened up and
in reponse to the sharp look she gave him
the old man explained :
: " Been kissing the baby sweet's honey
nicer n ice-cream paid two shilling.
" What ? " she demanded.
He again explained.
" Well, you must have lots of money, or
else you re a lunatic ! she growled. " Pay
two shillings to kiss a little young 'un like
that when you might have kissed my whole
family and the dog to boot for fifteen cent0 !
No wonder you have to wear old clothes ! "

Facts About Man. - If a well-made man

New Constitution. The new
constitution of California lias many
important and desirable changes.
The S. F. Chronicle, of the 8th inst.,
in speaking of the amended bill of
rights of the new constitution, says.
The Bill of Rights in the new constitution
is a great improvement on the old one. It
has been the cruel custom in some countries
to coatine witnesses who could not give
bonds for their appyrance in the same room
with the worst of criminals. This is prohib
ited in Section 6. The mode of trial by
jury as prescribed in Section 7, meets a pop
olar demand of long standing. In civil cas
es three-fourths of the jury may find a ve -diet.
Section 8 allows the prosecution "by
information" of offenses hitherto proscuted
only by indictment, and provides that grand
juries may be dispensed with save once a
year. This is another concession to a pub
lic opinion more or less well-grounded, that
society has outgrown the cause which once
suggested that the grand jury-alone should
take cognizance of public offenses.
New York, March 15. The emigration
movement, recently commenced, of Jewish
residents here promises to assume import
ance. They propose buying lands in the far
west, narcei them into farms, each emigrant
acquiring a title on easy conditions. The
colony now organizing embraces farmers,
skilled artisans, carpenters, plumbers and
other trades. Prominent Hebrews here, of
Cincinnati and elsewhere have been long dis
cussing and maturing plans to benefit their
poor countrymen in the large eastern cities.
A convention is called here of prominent
Hebrews of the country for July 7th to con

The richest city in the world is said to be
Frankfort on-the-Main, which contains a
population of about 100,000. If its wealth
were equally distributed among its inhabit
ants, every man, woman and child would
have $5,000 each. It is asserted that there
are 100 Frankforterg worth from $4,000,000
at 5,000,000 each, and 250 who are worth
$1,000,000 and upwards. The city is one of
the great banking centres of the globe. Its
aggregate banking capital is estimated at
$200,000,000, more than one-fourth of which
the famous Rothschilps, whose original and
parent house is there, own control. The
annual transactions in bills of exchange are in
excess of $100,000,000. Its general trade
and manutactoring industries have greatly
increased since the formation of the German
empire. Chicngo Tribune. .

" TRIFLHG WITH JUSTICE.'
Under the above caption the Salemi,
Statesjnan of the 14th inst., has some
pertinent and timely remarks, sug
gested by the late judicial farce in
that county, by which notoriously'
guilty parties escaped " unwhipt of
justice." There is scarcely a shadow
of doubt in the minds of well-informed
persons, on the subject, that Mrs.
Hebert and John D. Whitney con
cocted and carried out the murderous,
plans which deprived Mariou county,
of a peaceful, quiet citizen, in the
person of Oliver Hibert, and involved
the tax-payers of that county to the
amount of thousands of dollars of
costs. But it does not stop here.
Such instances produce a feeling of
insecurity of life and property and
establish fearful precedents. The
Statesnan sayr. :
In all cases coming up for adjudi-.ati n,
before a court of justice the first objective
point should be to ascertain the equities of
the case ; truth should be brought out as far
as possible and in the application of the es
tablished principles of law that construction
should be given as far as possible in the in--terest
of truth and justice. Precedents are
not as safe as the elementary principles of
law coupled with honest purposes and good
By a departure from this rule we think
the Supreme Court of this State greatly er
red in granting a new trial to John D. Whit
ney ; there were no facts before the court
to show that Whitney had not had a fair
and impartial trial ; there were no evidences
that went to show that injustice had been
done in any degree. The grounds upon
which a new trial was granted was purely;
technical and not upon an exception taken
by counsel for the defense at the time of trial.'
It was a forced effort to follow precedent
rather than substantial justice.
The minority opinion given by Judge
Boise is clearly in the right. When an at
torney takes upon himself the obligations of
his professions he is in honor bound to do:
business committed to his management on
honest and legal principles ; there is no code
of honor or obligation to clients that will'
warrant any illegal, dishonest practices or
the taking of any undue advantage of an un
settled principle or technical defect in the
law. Counsel are supposed to be educated
in, the law for the purpose of aiding and
facilitating the adjudication of differences in-.
the interests of justice, and not to mislead
and defeat the right.
