The new Steamer "Yaquina" crossed in
at 2 hours flood on Friday last, finding 14
jet of water on the liar. She steamed
straight up to the Raiiroad works, and
landed her freight, then ?e 'went on to the
Oneatta Saw Mill's, aifll then returned to
Newport to leave the remainder of the 300
tons constituting her cargo. She only re
mained two days at Yaquina, B reasonably
quick dispatch It appear 3 to tis a little
strange that if the ship could come in on
Friday on two hours flood, or 14 feet, she
should have not managed to get within 8
miles of the place on the Monday week
previous, when there was at high tide 20
feet or a perfectly smooth bar.
JohnfSmith and Bill Brown went hunting
a few days ago anil becoming tired and co'd
they essayed to build a fire. Bill had a
bottle of powder in his side coat pocket
and while stooping down to blow the fire
the cork fell out and the powder followed,
some of which fell into the fire, anil ignited
the whole. The first he knew the air was
full of wood, and fire, anil noise and things,
and he woke to realize that his face had
taken in most of the situation: ever since
he looks as if the event had made a lasting
impression upon him. It is fortunate how
ever, that no permanant injury resulted,
beyond a slightly damaged appeareuce.

The masquerade given by the Hook and
Ladder Company last Monday evening was

spared to make it the grandest event of the
season. About fifty characters were repre

shades from sublime to ludicrous, and so
perfect were their make-up that with one or

Port Townsend Statistics.
Port Town send, Jan. 15. Collector Bash
has just completed full returns for the year
1881 of business done in the Port Townsend
custom house. American vessels entered
from foreign ports, 2S2, tonnage 104,027;
American vessels entered coastwise, 124,
tonnage 107,046; foreign vessels entered
from foreign ports, 75, tonnage, 28,009;
total entries, 4S1, tonnage 300,562: Ameri
can vessels cleared for foreign ports, 270,
tonnage 160,253; American vessels cleared
coastwise, 86, tonnage 46,689; foreign ves
sels cleared for foreign ports, 75; tonnage,
2S.663; total clearances, 437; tonnage, 235,
010; grand total entrances and clearances,
918, tonnage, 536,172. At least three
fourths of the coastwise commerce of Puget
Sound is registered in San Francisco, and
not being required to report at this custom
house is not included in the above state
ment. It is safe to say that the outward
and inward tonnage of Puget Sound for the

From Wadswortn, Scv., to Ths Dalles.
The Lake eounty Examiner learns that
the Nevada and Oregon railroad is graded
out to the junction, and that there is 22
miles of track laid and in running order.
Beno people are disposed to scout the idea
that the Central Pacific proposes to build a
road from Wadsworth to The Dalles by way
of Goose lake, though there are good
grounds that such is the intention of the C.
P. folks. He says that in the event the
road is started from Wadsworth there wrill
be ample capital to push the work fast
enough to reach the Oregon line much
sooner than the N. & O. can, and it is the
universal opinion that if that road is started
in earnest the Nevada and Oregon will
branch off into the Plumas county, and
abandon the project of coming to Oregon.
The objective point of the proposed road
from Wadsworth will be The Dalles, and if
commenced it will be built as fast as men
and money can do Cue work.
The Xewspapcrs of the World.
In the world there are published 34,274
newspapers and periodicals, with a circula
tion of 116,000,000 copies, and the annual
aggregate circulation reaching 10,592,000,000
copies, or about 6J papers per year to each
inhabitant of the globe. Europe leads with
19,556; North America follows with 12,400,
the two together making over nine-tenths
of all the publications in existence. Asia
has 775; South America 639; Australia G01
md Africa 132. Of these 7800 are in Ger
man, .ibnj in French, and over 1600 in
Spanish. There are 4020 daily newspapers,
1S,274 tri-weeklies, and 850S issued less
frequently. It appears that while the an
nual aggregate circulation of publications in
the United States is 2,600,000,600, that of
Great Britain and Ireland is 2,200,000,000.
