with Oregon, and Benton county in par

the intention of bringing their families aid
friends at no distant day to this county.

such citizens, and is ready and willing to
welcome many more like these gentlemen.

a resting place in the bone of his small toe.
He says it was caused by a defective lock,
which was in the habit of "going off" nn
cerimoniously, and we are inclined to be
lieve his statement, since he is supposed to
be an excellent shot and would not be
guilty of shooting his own toe intentionally.
It is presumable that the birds enjoy un
disputed control of the aforesaid cherry tree.
During the prevalence of rough weather
at the harbor of Port Orford on the 25th
ult. the schooner Mose parted her bow line,
went ashore and became a total wreck.
She was taking the first cargo of lumber
from Joe Nay s mill this season and had
some 60,000 feet of it in her hold at the
time. It is probable that some of the lum
ber was saved. At low tide the next day
after the vessel went ashore it was possible
to walk dry-shod around her. The Mose
was a familiar favorite in these waters, and
especially at the Coquille, across which bar
she had wallowed her way so often that it
had become the belief that she could not be
wrecked; but the southe-ly swell at Port
Orford proved too much for her and she is
no more. Her captain and two of the
sailors reached the bay Monday night, just
in time to take the Areata for San Francisco.
A Safe Harbor.
TjIE YAQTJINA BAR AND HARBOR PROVEN
TO EE SAFE ALlD RELIABLE FOR
The late successful entrance of the O. D.
Co. 'a steamship Yaquina to the harbor
at Yaquina Bay is a source of universal
satisfaction to the citizens of the central
valley, and has fully demonstrated the fact
that the future oc Yaquina Bay and her
harbor is a glorious one. This being the
first entrance of a steamer of any note was
looked upon as a great event, and since the
entrance was made with such flattering
success, it has fully demonstrated the real
merits of the harbor, which are no longer a
question of doubt, but a fixed fact. Upon
the completion of the O. P. II. R. from the
Bay to Corva'lis early in October next, a
new channel of commerce will be opened up
to this valley which will afford us means of
transportation for our immense wheat yield
to San Francisco, Eastern, as well as foreign
ports at greatly reduced rates, thereby
securing to the faimer a greater profit on
the fruits of his industry. It is with
pleasure that we append a letter addressed
to T. Egeuton Hogg, President of the O. P.
R. R. Co., by Capt. Thos. H. Moi ion, who
was in command cf the Steamship Yaquina
from the time she left New York ii'i sbe
arrived at the Co. 's dock at Yaquina City;
and who has been in the employ of the Pa
cific Mail and other Stea.nship companies as
commander for twenty-six years.
and printaletter from Capt. W. E. Pluunner,
who is now in command of the steamer, and
who was in the employ of the Paciiic Coast
S. S. Co. ti'l he res;gued that position to
take command of tl'e Yaquina. Both o?
these captains are sea fanny; men of known
qualifications aod integrity, and their letters
speak volumes for the future of Yaquiea
Bay and her haibor.
Steamer Yaqctusa, Yaquina Cxty, Or.
J die 1st, 1884.
We arrived off this harbor at 7 A.
Be, ot the rflst ult. it being th'ck and
fogy we could see nothing to determine
our position. 1-ater in the day the tog
cleared away, ami at 3 P. M. , it then be;a';
scarcely half neap tide, we started ?i, en
tirely under my command the tug boat fol
lowing us in crossing the bar fifteen min
utes later at full speed, not fiuling less than
17 feet water, ard 20 mi lutes later the ship
was secure ! to the wharf.
1 can scarcely expre3 the surprise I feel
on accomplishing such an easy passage fiom
the sea to the wharf. The chinnel crossing
the bar is perfectly straight, with its banks
liitinctly defined, requiring no pi'oting
after once entering, and to me does not
p-eseut the slightest difficulty to any one
capable of handling a steamer oc any other
vessel. But my surprise was still g.-eater
on finding such a magnificent harbor ins;de,
with not less than 22 feet water at low
springtides, and nowhere less than 1000
feet in width. To-day I took the tug and
went out at low water to determine the
lepth all over the bar. On each side the
channel the sea was breaking on the banks
the same as yesterday, while al' over the
channel the sea was smooth. It is now
neap tides, anel the least water I could find
going from one side to the other of the
channel was 15 feet, and at hvjh water there
must be 22 feet. I should have no hes:ta
tion to bring in a craft of 19 feet. The reef
of rocks that run parallel to the coast, a
half mile beyond the bar, is a n tural break
water, and wards off the heavy seas that
break constxntly on this entire coast.
Finally I consider this harbor capable of
holding securely more than 5C0 vessels of
every description. I would recommend
here the establishment of a large buoy on
the outer southern edge of the bar, as a
better guide for vcssls entering this harbor.
Y'aqUNA.. Oa., June 3, 18S4.
Report of, W. E. Plummer, now in
command of the steamship Yaquina, I have
been eleven years in the employ of the P.
C S. S. Co. as commander, and I resigned
from my command in that company on
May 26, 1SS4 to take charge of the steamer
Yaquina, with a great many advices that I
was doing wrong to leave such a comyany
to take chargs of a steamship that was
likely never to enter Yaquina Bay. But to
ny surprise, on our arrival at the bar, being
low water, we waite.1 until one-haif tide
anel then steamed in without the least diffi
culty, with 17 feet on one-half tide, a" I
threw the lead mypelf. 1 find the bottom
lobe sandy ami only one rock anywhere,
and that is 1C ) feet from the channel with
a 'arge buoy on it. I think the bar quite
safe with a ship of 15 or 16 feet at common
high tide. I also went next day a?ter our
arrival, sounded the bar from a tug boat
aud found 13.V feet at quite lew water and
also fou ud the bar to sea quite straight:
only about three points turn in the bar.
And I find after getting in over the bar
plenty of water inside, and plenty of room
for most anv sized cbilNL The bar being
quite safe from ever being the least danger
of losing life, as the bar is within one-half
mile of a clear beach.
(Signed) Wm. E. Plummeh,
Commander of Steamship Yaquina.

The Queen of the Paciiic, which formerly

Victoria to Sfcn Francisco was accomplished
in fifty-two hours. The distance between
San JFrancisco and Victoria is about 830

Spkingfiscd, Vt., June 10. This village
has been visited by another disastrous flood,
the second within eleven months. At noon
yesterday a moderate lain fell, but an hour
later a storm of terrible force broke upon
the village. A storm was also in progress
about five miles north of town, and a hi";h
winel, that changed in a few minutes from
south to southwest and then back again,
drove the two storms together. The lain
fell as if a mighty river was falling from the
heavens. The whole stretch of country
which sloped west to Black river and east
to the creek sent torrents of water toward
the town. Warning was at once given, but
so rapidly ditl the water rise that few had
time to save anything, and were forced to
flee for their lives. The channel of the
creek soon became filled with the wreckage
of houses, barns and other buildings which
forced it in other directions. One stream
