A Rare Treat. "Wc understand that
Prof, and 3Irb. 3IcGibcny, who, liave
been spending a few days in Astoria, re
turn to-day to their Portland home. "We
wender: do Portlanders appreciate these
people? Since our acquaintance with the
Profeor and his very excellent wife,
about three years if we mistake not, we
! have never met them without finding
something more and more estimable.
Something to tell of them as being kind,
genial, social, refined, experienced and
expert musicians; teachers, without com
parison. Prof. McGibeny left a lovely re
gion of country (Minnesota), to como to
Oregon to teach his specialty, and we
should be at a loss to know why he is not
extravagantly lauded, were it not for a
few things coming under our observation
as a reporter for the press of Portland.
He is too jealously regarded to be regarded
zealously. He is emphatically a teacher
of music, and has the diplomas and neces
saiy papers to back his claims, and in
time will win favor from all classes. Mrs.
McGibeny has a sweet voice, and has con
trol of it, and as an auxiliary to her hus
band hoth will be successful. They have
accomplished much during their visit of a
week to Astoria, and Astorians part -with
them reluctantly, hoping to again soon
see them here, when they can stay longer,
and furnish us another musical treat.
Since writing the above we are informed
Prof, and Mrs. MeGibeny will remain
another week, and perhaps another Praise
Meeting will ""be- held by. older persons
participating at tho Congregational
Church next Sunday evening.
Among the passengers leaving Oregon
by the steam-hip Ajax, Sunday morning,
was Mr. n. B. H. Snyder, Jr., of jtfew
Jcrsey. Mr- S. has been out to this coast
recreating, and taking advantage of tho
detention of the steamer over night at
Bay View, Capt. Robcit Hume's fishery,
struck a bargain with one of the fishermen
for a night on the fishing grounds. The
proposition was to make up -any loss the
boat might sustain from the inexperience
of Mr. Snydor in the management. All
things being ready, accompanied by Pur
ser Johnson, the party set out in the eve
ning prepared for a night's work mixed
with pleasure. The first haul of the net
produced sixtv-four fine fish, land the total
catch amounted to one hundred and eighty
four, quitting at six o'clock in the morn
ing with a gain instead of a los. It was
a pleasant night to the amateur fishermen,
and Mr. Snyder will carry the recollec
tions of his Oregon trip with much greater
interest; -on account of it. On the day
after this event the steamer was again de
tained twelve hours waiting for high water
to get down to Astoria, on the trip from
Portland, when Mr. S., Purser Johnson,
and three others, took one of tho ship's
boats and pulled down to this place, a dis
tance of six miles in a heavy sea, giving
them an opportunity to look through the
city before the steamer arrived! to. carry
them on their journey.
Ambitions structures reared by man

"to the symmetrical proportions of fallen

" Hundreds of little Italian boys
are kept by old hags on Cherry and
Baxter streets, just to steal and beg.
If they come home at night without

the poor little fellows are whipped

floor without any supper. Most of
these boys turn out pickpockets, and
eventually go to the Island or to Sing
