BEAcnED. The sloop Fannie Bell with a
cargo of wood on board, met with an accident
at the wharf, and partly full of water was poled
over to Cass street, beach on high tido, for re
pairing, as soon as discharged.
Baths. The magical effect of soap and wa
ter was astonishingly displayed at the Occident
baths, Sunday. Mr. Uhlenhardt having every
thing in perfect and nice -working order now
his baths may bo considered a luxury.
Shooting. Saturday an altercation occurred
between two men in which weapons wero put
to use. The party assailed was Baker Tostin.
After being shot at and missed, almost faco to
face with his opponent, ho lit in with his fives
and decorated his head in the highest stylo of
Stave Bolts. The Adelaide brought from
Youngs river, last Saturday, a cargo of fino
stavo bolts, for shipmont to Honolulu by tho
barkentino Jano A Falkinburg. Capt Flavel
has an extensive contract for furnishing this
article to tho Islands, and tho trade in timo

- Subdued Sunday morning a man very much
intoxicated created a stir on tho street by the
excessive use of obsono and abusivo language
He was promptly arrested and on boing brought

Letting her Juhp, " Lot her drive," was
the text preached from a fow Sundays ago by
a young, tonguoy and eccentric clergyman of
Brooklyn. At tho close of tho sermon a plain
looking man inquired of another who that
was that preabhed and why ho selected such
subjects. " O, that is our pastor," was tho ro
nly "' and those subjects are takon up a relief
from tho dull, prosy sermons of tho day, Ho
is -wonderfully popular, you soo." " Yes; give
my compliments to him: I am from tho west,
am going to Boston, shall bo back next week,
' and ho would obligo mo very much if he would
preach next Sunday from tho text; Let her
rip.'" Last Sunday Captain Hamblin of tho
sloop Elua, received similar compliments from
a gentleman of Portland, who was ono of a
party of five on an excursion to Lewis and
Clarke river. Tho wind blow -fresh from tho
north "west, and a heavy sea rolled, so tho Cap
tain thought a reef necessary to tho sail and no
jib wanting. " 0, give her all sail," saidour
friend, " I like fast ridinglot hor jump!" A
sly wink passed around the crowd, Hamblin
sot his jib, and away they spod like tho wings
of a bird. Astorians know tho rosult, a wotter
party nevor landed from Lewis. and Clarke on
a dry, beautiful day. Our friend next "Sunday
wants to go out again, prepared to let hor rip.
A slight alteration from tho B ooklyn text, to

ria route, giving us a daily boat to
The celebration at Cathlamet on tle
4th, was a decided success. Our re
porter returned last evening and in
our next issue will give full particu
lars. Tide Land Beef. One reason why
the beef steaks of Clatsop county are
so rich and juicy may be attubuted
to the fact that the cattle get Tolling
fat on the ever green grass of our
tide lands. They never are compell
ed to eat dry hay.
Prospect Hill. A few hours spent
very pleasantly the other day with
our friend E. J. Jeffries of Prospect
Hill, Lewis and Clarke river, furn

Siioalwater Bay Yaciit Club. By
favor of Thomas Smyth, late Secretary of
the above Club, we are' in poss'essiofii of a
copy of the pnhted Constitution araii By
Laws governing that organization. This
Club is the life of all sports on that pleas
ant little Bay during tho interval preced
ing active employments at oy&tering after
the close of a teason. Last yeaa one of the
firest Regattas perhaps that ever took place
in Pacific waters, occurred on the- 4th of
July. Twelve boats entered, according to
the correct method of Yachting, for three
handsome prizes: lbt, tin elegant Silver
Goblet, linecTwith gold; fed, a valuable Sil
ver watch; 3d, a costly Opera glass. The
following is a list of the boats entered, the
'pers'ons by whom entered, and to whom the
prizes were awarded:

The festivities closed with a ball at Espy
& Co.'s Hall, and we are told 0at it was
an event which is fctill cherished in the rec
ollection of every person present. The
Club having. decided to have another Be-,
gatta this year, about the 20th of July was
selected for the event,, at which time it is
thought about thirty entries will be made.
Court will be in session then, and numer
ous visitor may be expected from abroad,
on their annuul visits to tho Bay, which
will add interest to the scene. Many of
our citizens would like to go, and no doubt
several will go, as the Yacht Club, through
their Secretary, have sent very courteous
and pressing invitations to several here, to
be present. Arrangements will be made
for the beach drive across from Unity, for
all who wish to go, we understand. This
will boa fine chance for Winship Chowder
Club No. 1 to get out their chest for an ex
cursion. The officers of the Shoalwater
Bay Yacht Club, for 1873, elected June
21st, are -'as follows :
Commodore 'Capt. G.H. Johnson

Measurer Thomas Crellen
The Regatta committee last season was as

we believe no change has been made in the
committee this year. "

Many of our readers will recognize
the truthfulness of the following nar
rative as told by the funny man of the
It, is a little singular why your wife's
mother, will persist in 'sleeping on a
cord bedstead. But she does. You
don't think smucI of this until you
are called upon to- put it up which
event generally takes place in the
evening. The bedstead has been
cleaned in the afternoon, and hav
ing been soaked through with
hot water, is now ready for putting
up. Your wife holds the lamp and
takes charge of the conversation.
The rope has been underwater sever
al times in the course of the cleaning,
and has sw-olen to a diameter great
er than the holes in the rails, has also
got into a fit of coiling up into myster
ious intricate forms. You sxt first
wonder at this, but bretty soon wond
er ceases to. be a virtue., and you then
scold, The thread wiach has been
wound around the end of the rope to.
facilitate its introduction into the
holes has come off, and y.ou have too
roll it up again. Then after you have
pulled it through eight holes, your
wife makes the, discovery that you
have-srarted wrong. The way that
rope comes out of those holes again
makes your wife get closer to the
door. Then you try again, and get it
tangled in your legs. By this time
you notice .that this is the smallest
bedroom in the house, and you call
the attention of your wife to the fact
by observing : " Why on earth don't
you open the. door? Do you want to
smother me?" She opens the door
and you start again, and she helps
you with the lamp. Pirst she. puts it
on the wrong side of. the rail, then
she moves it so the heat comes up
from the chimney and scorches your
nose. Just as you need it the most
you lose sight ef it entirely, and turn
ing round find her examining the
wall to see how that man has. put on
the whitewash.. This excSfces. you
and brings out the perspiration in
greater profusion, and you declare
you will kick the bedstead out of
doors if she doesn't come around
with that light. Then she comes
around. Finally the cord, is laid all
right, and you proceed to execute the
very delicate job of tightening it.
The lower ropes- are first walkedjover J
This is done by stepping. qn the first
one and sinking jt down, hanging to
the head-board with the clutch ef
death. Then you ste with the other
foot on the ne-xt line, spring .that
do wn; lose. your balance, grab for the
head-board, miss it and come down
in a heap. This is repeated mor.e or
less times across the length of the bed,
the only variety being the nsew
places you bruise. The top corcjsarc
tightened in another way, and you
proceed to that. You first put one
foot on each railwrjich spreads you
some, and as you do it the .frightful
thought strikes you that if one of
these feet should slip o.yer, nothing
on .earth would prevent your being
spilt through to the chin.. Then you
put up the first rope until your eyes
seem io be on the point of rolling
out of their sockets, and the blood rh
your viens fairly groans, arid on )be
ing convinced 'tAat'you .can't jpull it'

You don't jump down and ivalk back,

A man. thus stretched across a bed
stead never becomes so excited as to
lose his preserice of mind. It would
be instant death to him if he did..
Then he goes it over again, waddling
and pulling groaning and grunting,
while his wife moves round with the
lamp and tells . him to take it easy
and not scratch the' bedstead any
more than he can help, andshe can't
tell which dreaks the most, he or the
bedstead. And afterhgets through
she has tho audacity to ask yn to
bring in the feather beds. In the
dead of the night that man will steal
up to that room and look at the bed--stead
