badly in an item last Saturday relating to .

meant to state that on account of tho

to touch at Cape Powlweather, and ac-
cordingly continued her course on to A.-
toria, but it rung Cape Disappointment in
there, and then continued, saying: 4 Arriv
ing thero at Astoria, it was determined
to com on to Portjand. As the steamer
could not land nt Capo Disappointment, it
was thought best to land tho supplies
which j;r8 intended forhat lighthouse,
