The Oregon City Enterprise of last week
says: "Mr. .Tas. A. Yantis, formerly ed
itor of the Corvallis Gazette, died a few
days ago at Walla Walla. He was a splen
did fellow, as good as gold, ever willing to
make any sacrifice for a friend that an hon
orable man could. We much regret that he
has gone over to the great silent majority.'

The British steamer Mary Tatham, which
sailed from Hongkong March 18th for Port
land with a cargo of Chinese lalwrers
and merchandise, is reported wrecked off
tlie coast of China. The crew were saved,
but ship and cargo are supposed to be a
total loss. The Mary Tatham has been
plying in the China trade between San
Francisco and Hongkong for some time, and
upon her recent arrival at the latter port
was chartered tor Portland, and was ex
lected to arrive during May. She was
consigned to John McCraken & Co.
The Ashland Tiding says: "A reward

conviction of any or all of the paities con

less ) much increased by additional sub
scriptions by private parties in the county. "

Last Sunday nijht as Dr. Ballard, of
Lebanon, was passing along the street of
that city to D. Anderson's to procure tlte
key to his (Dr. Ballard's) office, he was at
tacked by some unknown parties and very
roughly bandied, breaking several of his
ribs besides other injuries, and leaving him

The tunnel contractor Mr. J. H. Bugbee,
of San Francisco, has entered vigorously on
his work. His first gangs of Chinamen ire
bow arriving, and before the end of the
month of April there will be about 300 Chi
namen at work on the road. We hear that
a further large quantity of rolling stock,
including passenger, express, and baggage
cars have been shipped from the Fast.
Work on the depot grounds at Yaquina is
being pushed forward. The locomotive
has been safely landed, and set on the track.
The extension of the wharf is beiaj pro
ceeded with as rapidly as the piles can be
delivered. Delivery of lumber from the
mills to tunnels and bridge site or framing
yards has commenced : but the teams work
still to a considerable disadvantage, owing
to the muddy and heavy state of the? road;
this last fact we understand is retarding
the work on the grade and as yet prevent
ing the organization of plough and scraper
-There 'i nWV.om to it."
The Salem Statesman of last Tuesday
says: "S. C. Coffin, of this city, together
with his sister, Mrs. L. Marvin, and his
brother, G. A. Coffin, are preparing to
bring suit for one-half of the Stephen Coffin
donation bind claim, in Multnomah county.
on which the principal portion of the city
of Portland now stands. They claim that
the patent should have been issued to their
father and mother, as husband and wife, in
pursuance of an act of Congress of February
27, 1850, commonly called the donation
law, and not to the father ? lone, as tbe
Commissioner of the- General fcand Office
ignorantly supposed. They have heretofore
been advised by eminent lawyers in Port
land that the suit could not be maintained
by them until the death of their father, as
his right as tenant by the courtesy would
prevent their receiving the same until
after his death. It will be remembered
that Gen. Coffin died a few wseks a-, and
now they claim their right to the land has
accrued to them. This is au important
move, and will have a tendency to unsettle
numerous titles to property in the city of
Portland. The land claimed is now worth
millions of dollars. "
The Telegram of the 18th inst., says:
Yesterday morumg a fatal accident occur
red on the O. R. & N. Co's railroad at tun
nel No 2. The construction train ran into
a hand car ;n that tunnel. There were
five men on the hand car at the time of the
collision. Four of the men saw the danger
in time and jumped aside aud saved their
lives; lut one man, named D. A. Upham
a laborer, was struck and instantly killed.
Tne unfortunate man was a Novia Scotian,
and leaves a family at Truro, Novia Scotia
His wife's name is Emily Upham. The
body of the deceased was taken care of and
a coroner's inquest held yesterday. The
verdict was that the railroad company was
in no way to blame for the accident, as it
was entirely due to the carelessness of the
men on the hand car, who had no business
running there at that time. Mr. H. B.
Thielsen telegraphed up orders to have the
unfortunate man decently buried, at the
expense of the company.
A Sailor's Suicide.
An Astoria dispatch of April 17th says:
Harry Fredricksen. who signed articles and
shipped on the Storm King last Friday
jumped overboard and was drowned last
evening. The ship was lying in stream off
Smith's Point. A fishing boat was passing
when Fredricksen jumped overboard. The
mate ordered the secou J mate and .men to
lower ship's boat, and pick the man up,
then seized a rifle aud declared he would
shoot the men in the fi hing boat if they
picked up the man, who was swiming to
them. When the ship's boat was about 50
feet from him he sank and was seen no
more. His drowning has created some ex
citement in town, nad it is thought tiie
men in the "fishing boat might have saved
him. It was reported the man was shang
haied aboard, but this is denied by Capt.
Reed, who says he signed articles in the
custom limise when sober, and he paid
t'SO advance and SO blood money for him.
Big Harry, as he was called, was well
known here, having fished several seasons
for the Humes. The Storm King has been
ready for sea two weeks, but was delayed
for waut of a crew. .

to no avail. His last words were to his
brother William; he said he wished he had

Dear Gazette. On our way down the
Willamette on the "A. A. McCulIy" (Capt.
J. B. Sanborn), an interest. n' incident
occurred. As we neared Wynooski a cow
was seen, beneath a high bluff, sunk deep
in the inire and utterly unable to extricate
herself she had somehow or other got down
from the high ground above into the miry
place in which she had stuck fast half bur
ied in the mud. Capt. Sanburn, prompted
by that humanity which is a part of his
very nature, immediately he discovered the
poor animal headed bis boat for the shore
and very soon, by his order3, a set of as
fine a lot of men as ever formed the crew
of a steamboat got ashore and with willing
hands soon got the poor eow out of the
mire took her aboard the lioat and landed
her a little further down the river whence
she was soon on her way to the road. Some
of the men followed her up the bank to the
highway where they met her owner who
on being informed of the above facts simply
remarked rtwlien stock gets there we have
to pull them out; which way did she go?"
The fellow hadn't the slightest idea that he
ought at least to have said "thank you."
Such ungrateful fellows don't deserve any
favors; but, as Capt. Sanborn said, he
didn't do it for the man but for the cow.
We are credibly informed that this was only
one of many such acts of compassion that
this humane Captain and his kind-hearted
crew are constantly performing along the

she made on the trip, and we shall always
