Removed, The Post-office has been
removed from the old stand in Mr. Par
ker's store to the magnificent quarters pre
pared by the Government in the new
Custom House building. Astoria now has
the best furnished and most capacious post
office in the State. It is admired by all
who examine it, and travelers say they
never saw a more complete establishment.
The amount of mail coming to this city is
very large for the population and the pros
pect is that although the present post office
is larger than we just now require, it will
not be too large in a year or so hence.
Astoria, July 21th, 1873.
The last issue of the
Wallamet Farmer, contains a communi
cation from Portland signed B. (which
means Buncomb) interviewing the report
of the committee appointed by the Astoria
Chamber of Commerce, which report has
been published and extensively circulated
to good effect, judging from the state of
mind noanifestcd by "Bumcombn in his
communication. He starts of on a high
horse. Hear him. " The report of a self
constituted committee of Astorians, to a
Mythical Chamber of Commerce." "Now
Mr. Chamber of Commerce, ain't you
kilt, dead? can you survive such a shock,
if indeed, you ever had an existence, you
didn't get authority from Portland, or
from Bumcomb, to form any such associa
tion, or appoint any such committee, and
therefore, no confidence can be placed in
your doings or representatiens: every thing
is a my the, but Portland and Uncle Sam's
twenty-four foot drudger.
I did not take, up my pencil to answer
B.'s communication, (for his reasoning
cannot be comprehended by ordinary
minds) but to call the attontion of the com
mittee to the blunders they had made
thoughout their report. Ain't the com
mittee aware that a man up the creek cau
tell better where the "Windward was blown
over, than those who saw it, and the num
ber of vessels tliat have crossed the Co
lumbia river Bar, than the committeo can
know from the records.
How tho farmers of the valley will be
t rejoiced, when they learn from Bumcomb,
that they will be able to save three cents k
bushel by shipping their wheat from Port
land, and that they have been saving it
all the time. This of course, will knock
the farmers ware-house, where Uncle
Sam's twenty-four foot Drudger is to
knock the Hog's-back in Cathlamet bay.
Now, seriously, Mr. Editor, I am rejoic
ed that we have a medium, through which
false representations can be met, and
Truth sustained, and I think Truth has fi
nally got her boots on, and will be alter
all such shallow pated fellows, I hope
tho"" self constituted committee" will at
tend to this aelf constituted Buncomb.
On the whole Mr. Editor, on a second
reading, I think Buncomb only intention
was, fo draw out more information on the
fculcct of commerce from this committee.

A Masonic XiOdgc in Jerusalem..
The attempt to organize- a Masonic
lodge in the city of Jerusalem, under
American auspices, which has been
long on foot,, has at length succeeded.
Advises- were received a few days ago
ftom John Sheville, who was sent out
last spring for that purpose, that on
"Wednesday, May 7th, he organized
the Royal Solomon Mother Lodge,
No. 293, in due and ancient form, in
the Great Mark-Masters' Quarry,
under the city of Jerusalem, and in
itiated a candidate.
Under authority of the Grand Lodge
of Canada, the Eev. John Sheville
left New York April 18th ; Egypt,
May 2d arrived at Jerusalem May
6th ; finally,, on the 7th of May, the
day named in the warrant, organized
Collecting together twelve of the re
sident and visiting Masons of Jerusa
lem, Mr. Sheville entered the vast
and gloomy vault of the " Cotton Me
gara" at 2 p.m., and proceeded with
guides and lighted torches to uthe
Chamber of the Brotherly Covenant, "
where the Masonic emblems, en
graved by Dr. Morris in 1868, remain
to designate the place. Upon a
square pillar which marks the centre
of the chamber, the essential objects
constituting the "great lights" of
Maspnry were "displayed in tradition
al order. A proper arrangement of
officers and members followed, and
the well-known forms of organizing
the lodge and dedicating the work to
the royal patron, King Solomon, were
proceeded with. On the same even
ing, a resident of Jerusalem, a gen
tleman of distinction, was initiated.
The first act of the new lodge, after
the Grand Marshal had pronounced
the organization perfected, was to de
clare that "all Master Masons who
are members of the American Holy
Land exploration are hereby recog
nized as honorary life members of
No. 293, with corresponding rank.'.1
The number of these is some 2,000.
To the Past Grand Master of Ken
tucky, L.L. D., is due the inception of
the plan, and to the liberality of some
two thousand of the Masonic frater
nity, under his earnest appeals for
five years, its successfiucomplish

In looking over the large amount of
land owned in this city by non-residents,
the thought suggests itself that with such
a diversified interest there ought to he a
greater concentration of effort to build! up
the city. Lots and blocks are- orarKidl here

Once upon an evening bleary,
"While I sat me dreaming dreary,
In the sunshine, thinking o'er
Things that passed in days of jore;
"While I nodded, nearly sleeping,
Gently came in something creeping,
Creeping upward from the floor
"'Tis a cooling breeze," I muttered,
"Prom the regions 'neath the floor;
Only this and nothing more."
Ah! distinctly I remember
It was in that wet September,
"When the earth and every raessibeJ!
Of creation that it bore,,
Had for weeks and months been soaking
In the meanest, most provoking
Poggy rain that, without joking,
"We had ever seeni before,
So I knew it must be very
Cold and damp beneath the floor
Very cold beneath the floor.
So I sat me nearly napping
In the sunshine, stretching, gaping,
And a feeling quite delighted
"With the breeze from 'neath the floor,
Till I felt me growing colder,
And the stretching waxing bolder.
And myself now feeling older,
Older than I felt before
Feeling that my joints were stiffer
Than 'they were in days of yore
SthTer than they'd been before.
All along my back the creeping
Soon gave place to rushing, leaping,
As if countleas frozen demons
Had concluded to explore
All the cavities the varmints
'Twixt me and my nether garments,
Through my boots into the floor;
Then I found myself a shaking
Gently shaking more and more
Every moment more and more,
'Turns the Ague, and it shook me
Into the heavy clothes, and took mo
Shaking to. the kitchen every
Everv place where was warmth m. store,
Shaking till the China rattled,.
Shaking till my molars rattled;
Shaking, and with ail nay warming.
Peeling colder than before;
Shaking till it had exhausted
All its powers to shake me more
Till it could not shake me more
Then it rested till the morrow,
"When it came with all the horror
That it had the face to borrow,
Shaking, shaking as before,
And from that day in September
Day which I shall long remember;
It has made diurnal visits.
Shaking, shaking, oh! tsosore!
Shaking oil' my boots, and shaking
Me to bed if nothing more,
Pully this if nothing more.
And to-day the swallows flitting
Pound my cottage see me sitting '
Moodily within the sunshine
Just inside my silent door,
"Waiting for the Ague seeming,
Like a man forever dreaming
And tho sunlight on xae streaming,?
Shades no shadow on tike- flooir,
Por I am too thin and llow
To make shadows on the floor
Kary shadow any more

The Olympia Tribune says c
indignant people of Seattle, to
even with tne Northern Pacific Pail
road Company for not giving them
the terminus, are going to organize
a company and build an opposition
railroad. The capital of this new
company is to be $10,000,000. If
Seattle, with a population ol less than
fifteen hundred souls, can raise $10,
000,000 to build a railroad accross the
mountains, surely Olympia should be
aDie xo raise two or tnree mindred
thousand dollars to build the short
branch she so much desires.15
Brine for Keeping Butter. Make
a brine strong enough to bear an egg;
then put in two handfulls of salt to a
gallon of water. Add half a pound of
white sugar and two teaspoonfuls of
saltpeter. Boil well and skim until .
perfectly clear; then strain six or
eight times. Always keep a large
bag of salt in the brine with the but
ter. This is said to preserve batter
for a year or two. Be sure that the .
butter you attempt to put away is in
the first instance fresh and well made
I Wrap each roll separately in muslin
cloth, tying up as you 0. Pack them
as closely as you can in a large, emp-
ty atone jar until it is filled to with-
iu a few inches of the top. Weigh,
the butter down with a clean stone-
or something of the sort, Then pour
over the brine urTtil the whole is sub
merged. Tie up close, and the but
ter will be js$ as good ivheri wanted
for tiee aa when first put in brine.
