There is no ice in Astoria harbor this
winter. "With railroad connection with
the interior, commerce would not have
been suspended for the last two weeks,

Boys, carelessly handling lire arms at

ren hist evening. The ball from an old
pistol barely grazed his head.
The tug Sedalia has been engaged, for
some days past, in taking up the can
buoys, and placing spar buoys in their

Thr can buoys are to be repainted for
Portland papers think it a shame
that Oregon should permit Victoria
to pay sixty-five cents per dozen for
California eggs. Suppose Portland
licstir herself in securing a. winter
highway to the seaboard a railroad
so that the farmers of Oregon can ex
port their eggs to golden markets
when the Columbia river is frozen.
Portland papers speak of great
efforts being made at Portland to
break through the ice and take bal
ance of the cargo needed b3' the ship
Cutwater down the river. The ship
however after taking on what she
could get at Astoria went to sea with
out waiting for spring to open the
river above, thinking it cheaper to
all parties concerned to sail immedi
ately than to pay for delays. She
vent to sea drawing 20 feet 6 inches.
The Captain hopes to return to Asto
ria but will never take his vessel up
the river at ordinarv rates.
The Oregoniiin is greatly at fault
when it asserts that the Cutwater did
not land at Astoria, by reason of high
winds. This vessel did not attempt
or have any occasion to land, nor
did the master desire such a thing,
which could have been done easily.
During the blow that prevented the
boats on Puget Sound from making
their regular trips and suspended the
lading and discharging of large ves
sels at San Francisco it was not
thought profitable for river boats to
lie along side ships anchored off in
the harbor at Astoria. This was of
only few hours duration but was the
occasion no doubt of the blunder
made b3r the reporter of Portland
who is accustomed to a harbor ?o
narrow that one vessel can not lie
along side another unless one or both
of them is landed, or tied to the
