Thk Locks Refkkred to. Speaking of
the bill introduced by Mr. Thompson, Sen
ator from Clackamas county, granting
State aid to build locks around the falls of
the Wallamct at Oregon City, the Ore
ijonlan says :
Tb bill proposes to appropriate the
mm of $25,000 annually, lor ten years,
and allow the company constructiisg the
locks the right to charge 73 cents per ton
upon all merchandise passing through the
luck. Apropos of this, the People's
Transportation Co. introduces a proposi
tion to build locks from their basin for
$150,000, reserving the right to charge 50
rnt.i only, per ton. as toll. Their pro
posal Will-cost the fctate $100,600 less ex
pense than is contemplated 'by the 'bill,
and fifty per cent, in tolls. Tb,price now
charged for hauling by -Wagons from Ca
ncmaU to a point below the I T. Cos
warehouse at Oregon City, hi fifty cents a
ton. "The ljt named "company have it in
contemplation to build lock3 as soon as
the shipping business of the State demands
mich improvement, and the plans, specifi
cations and maps showing the number and
position of locks necessary -ftre already
draw n. If. then, the State demands this
improvement, by all means let her save
th? $100,000 and hare it built on the side
of the river where it will benefit the great

LETTER FROM KEY "W AST.
THE ISLAND IT8 USKS INHABITANTS.
By looking on tbe map one may
see that this little island is, at pres
ent, tbe southernmost part of the
United States. Originally, the island
was a coral reef, but successive ages
have each' in their turn left additional
verdure and shrubbery until it has
become one 6f the most important
stations in tbe South. Not that the
produce of the island actually amounts
to anything" 'of importance, for bes
yond a few cbcoanut trees, an occa
sional lime and tamarind tree, and
yet "fflore seldom a plantain bush,
there 1s nothing eatable grown on the
island. But the verdure is refreshing
to the eye.and the shrubbery is shadv.
The island contains a population of
sotne 0,000 people, about one half of
whom are colored, all of whom man
age, after their fashion, to eke out a
The Government has a large fort
here, very large and commodious bar
racks, where there are constantly
quite a force of soldiers kept, I sup
pose, to get them acclimated." JBe
sides, the island has been la'rery im.
portant coaling station for Goverii
ruent steamers during the war and
the trade thus brought in kept up the
life of the place until 'he war ended,
when it retUfhed to its present con
dition, best defined by the superlative
degree of dull. Soldiers and sailors,
however, will exchange their hard
earned 'currency for the perishable
thhigs which gratify the 'taste, and
hence the Key Westers exist. There
are two passable hotels, and .perhaps
five well built houses on the island.
Besides these 'five, with the exception
of the Government buildings, the rest
of!Key West is an accretion of in
built, tumbledown shanties, which
would disgrace the worst mining
camp in Idaho, during the war,
however, these shanties did a tbfiv.
ing business. Though the island was
under martl law, yet it did not pre
vent them from peddling bad rum,
or keeping a room Tor a quiet game,
at which game ye gallant navy officer
often left enough to Support his family
for a year.
The proclivities of the place have
been most intensely seccsh. Mallory,
the re"bel Secretary of the Navy, and
the buHder cf trie -fa-re ous Atlanta,
had his home here. The house in
which he 'Iivtd before 'the rebellion is
in sight from where 1 write a white
cottage with green blinds, two dor
mer windows, and surrounded by a
few stimted cocoaftut trees j like the
late Secretary, nothing remarkable
either way. Some of the leadin"
citizens, at the time of the firing on
Sumter, sent down word to the com
mandant of Fort Taylor that he must
haul down the United States fl g and
run up the spcesh thing. Command
ant Major French sent back word
thiftif tfcey oiQ sot take down all to
kens of Secession ftying from their
houses within thirty minutes, he
would kindly help them to do so,
even at the expeuse of Government
powder, arid the loss of a few shells.
He then turned his guns on the town
and th seccsh rag came down within
the allotted time. After that Mal-
lory left. The secesh bft ds ate now
winging their way bac&, compiaml'ng
of dull times. But you will ask me
how the people all live, now that the
war is eirded and the sti;!urs departed.
Not that kind of sponging done in
the Web-foot State,where they some'
times sponge a man out of a dinner,
a breakfast, a Siiit of clothes, or what
not, but veritable sponges, hauled up
from the rocks of the sea.cured, dried,
baled and sold. Ench year sees this
branch of trade increase; last year it
was over $100,000, which, for a place
like this, is quite an item.
Method of gkttis(g the sonIse.
The persons who engage in this
business have boats, hooks and grap
nels. Thev start off earlv in the
morning, row or sail to some of the
many reels which abound off the
coast, and there, While One or two of
the men steady the boat by deans of
weights, or" stohe anchors," as they
are termed, the others Ipt down their
poles with honks, (something like a
boat hook,) and hook the sponge from
the rocks and hatll it Ititd-the boat.
This is Called "gathering" the sponge;'
and many a day may pastf before
they are enabled to gather one sponge.
First, because the sea is too rouch
and they cannot steady their boat
(for the best sponge grows between
15 and 90 feet under water) to get
the hook properly placed" about the
rock ; and next, if it is ever so calm,
and tho fish make a disturbance in
the water to stir bp the sediraent,
they cannos see where the sponge is,
and they can do nothiog until it is
clear and calm again. Sometimes a
whole month passes without their
being able to take a sponge, and then
in one da thev mar collect enorjffh
j v m J
to par tbem a hondred dollars. Like
all others who 44 go down to the sea."
they are exceedingly thriftlcsa and
all the same ; ignorant of to day and
careless of to-morrow..

The biiape8 or the clouds axdtiis
trees do not differ more widely thaa tho
forms of nervous disease. Sometimes bo tU
the mind and body are affected, soinetimea
the body .only, and often the complaint ijs
confined to. a jingle member. In one class
of cases, the motiye nerveS alona are disor
dered, as iq SU.. Titus' Dance; in another
class the nerves of sensation only ar attack
ed, as in neuralgia, tic douloureaux, tooth
ache,, earache, eH. Paia. is, in fact, the im
mediate consequence, of a disturb condi
tion of the nervous .system ; for only thro.
the delicate fibers of which it is, aomposed
can pain be experienced. , Tremors hysteria
and most ot the unpleasant feelings usually
ipclu4ed under the head of nervousness,
arise from the weakness of these sensitivo
tkreada which pervade every part, of, the aar
iraal structure, and have their source in the
focntain Lead -of all seostion, tbe brain.
The tonic action of Hosteltcr's Bitters is of
vast service in cases of this kind.. Nervous
headache, ordinary Jaceacheneuralgic paiu
andcverv variety of spasmodic, torture, are
quickly .alleviated, by the use of the prepa
ration whicl: at onee braces and tranquilizer
the nerves. Person's of a lymphatic temper
ament and feeble organfzation, arc especial
ly subject to these complaints, and should (
tako the Bitters daily as au invigoraot. La
dies will derive great benefit from tbem in
all the peculiar mental and physical disturb
ances to which, a3 a sex, they are subject.
AsafcEtida, valeraiu, and, the other nervines,
usually prescribed fbr these affections, at
best, merely alleviate them, for tbe time being
but theUitters are a permanent inyigorant,
and'theiryai'je as a remedy for cery pkaso
of nervousness fslteyrnd all estiujate.
It is a great thing to have a sound anijl
vigorous constitution. .There is nothing
that money cau buy, comparable in value ,t
this best gift of nature. The difference be
tween the individual who has.it, and, the uu:
fortunate "who lias it not, is just the difl'erence
between thema:i whojeoes into battle cloth
ed in defensive armcr, aiwl one whr taa
nothing. to oppose the swerd aad bulk-t.but
hi3 naked breast. "The pestilenee that
walketli in darkness, the sickness that dei:
troyeth at noonday," while it lays lew tho
jnan of feeble stamina, is cften conquci ed
by, the native strength of what is called aiv
" iron constitution.".
Heaven, however, has not endowed even a
moiety of mankind with this inestimable
blessing, and therefore it behooves those
who have it not to resort to tfmse most effi
cient means of eonstitutional, iuv.igoration
which ccVence jean supply. -There is good
y-arrstst for asserting tlmt Ilostetter's it't
ters are admirably adapted to promote this
end. t)ther touics have their drawbacks.

The counterffiting of JIos.tctter's Stpmacjt:
