Stuffed rolls of silver have become so numerous in San Francisco as to be monotonous. The Pacific Bank toolv in about S200 worth of lead pipe one day, and Donohoe t Kelly received a couple of rolls from E. Newbergher A Co., who, on being notified, at once redeemed the galena tubes. The swindles are perpetrated by respect ably dressed men who wish to ex change silver for sold. What a fountain of blessing is a cow! She is mother of beef, the source of butter, the original cause of cheese, to say nothing, of shoes, horns, hair, combs and upper leather. A gentle, amiable, everyielding creature, who has no joy in family affairs which she does not share with man. We rob her of milk, and we only care for her that the robbery may be per petuated. And that's just all that prompted the late subscription paper in this town " for the benefit of the cows." The Mayor of Baltimore lately received from B. C. Monroe of New burg, letters making a suggestion that a Presidential group of trees, one tree for each President, be set out in the city parks. The letter states that the plan has received the approval of the Committee having charge of the Washington headquarters in Xew burg. With the letter were sent two articles cut from the Xewburg Daily Journal, one written by Mr. Monroe and the other by J. T. Ileadley, the American historan, both favoring the suggestion. Mr. Headley recom mends that the trees be planted in a circle, with the one representing George Washington in the center. Also, that the enclosing trees be ever greens, while the central one be an American pine. It is stated that the Mayor is favorabty impressed with its suggestions, and it will probably be laid before the Park Commission ers for their action. Astorians might -with profit accept'the suggestions and plant a few trees anyhow. Wl Wife No. 19. We have with care examined the book "with the above title, for the sale of which Mr. "W. B. Ross is agent for this city and county, and believe it to be a true and lit eral description of that monster of iniquity, mormonism and po lygamy. Mrs. Young being one of the household of Brigham. had ample opportunities to see the "Church of the Latter Day Saints" in its true light, and to view from her infancy the vulgar, profane and demoralizing pre cepts, taught By the apostles. Her description of the plundering and licentious life led by the mor man people of Missouri and Nauvoo, in Illinois, are not over drawn, for we know from our own observations that they were noth ing but a band of robbers, steal ing the people's property under the plea that" they were lending to the Lord." Mrs. Young's his tory of the "Hand cart scheme" claimed by the Mormon elders to be a "Divine plan," to gather the saints to "Zion'' or Salt Lake, is worth the price of this book. The handcart expedition was truly appalling, and more than seventy poor, innocent and hood winked followers perished in the mountains, in the snow and by starvation, while wending their way to their home in Utah, all be cause of the extreme folly of Brigham and his counsellors that this was the divine plan for cross ing the plains. The sufferings, the blood and dying groans of these duped people are crying to heaven for vengeance, and the guilt' soul of Brigham will writhe in torment hereafter, for ail " his damning advice and crimes. This book will have a tendency to educate people up to that standard, so necessary to get a correct idea of the incubus of Mormonism that has been setting a blot upon American politics and social life for many years, and may suggest some plan for rid ding the country of that relic of barbarism, polygamy. Amity in? Yamnill county has ac cepted the terms of the O. C. P. Co.. and is going to have a railroad at last There is no section of country that needs it worse. The time occupied in hauling off the hundreds of thou sands of bushels of grain in the fall of the year may now be occupied in putting in fall cro;is, besides the busi ness of the road will be doubled by the extension. There will be in the vicinity of half a million bushels of ram to ship from Amity this fall. The latest tiling in the invention line is a contrivance for preventing uneasy and mischievous childi en from ""joggling" each other in school. It is described as follews: "In the seat of each chair is placed a small metallic plate connected hy a wire with a gal vanic battery on the teacher's desk. Each alternate chair is con nected with the x)ositive pole of the battery and the other with the nega tive pole. So long as the children re main quiet no shock is experienced, but the moment one child touches an other and electric current is created, and both the victim and his assailant are held fast, an uproar is created and the attention of the teacher is attract ed." This novel plan is desiimated "a machine to prevent joggling in school-rooms," and the inventor has actually enlisted the help of the keep er of a small private, school in Chicago to allow him to exhibit the effectiveness of the invention. It is no exaggeration to say that it is a complete success, and that restless boys once under the operation of tins galvanic shock are done forever "with joggling as a means of grace. The political addresses last even ing, at the Court-house in this city, by Messrs. Stott and Strong, opposing candidates for the office of Prosecu ting Attorney of the District were tempered with a manly spirit to do each other simple justice, and both gentlemen acquitted themselves with honor showing the people that with them, they stand upon individual merit, rather than party bias. One of Badollet & Co.'s boats was delayed a few nights since for want of a boat-puller. When the Superin ent, Mr. C.Lienenweber inquired the cause of the delay, and was informed as to the facts, he said to the fisher man : iC Get ready, I will furnish you with a boat-puller," and the boat was speedily prepared for work, when the fisherman inquired r " Where is the boat-puller?" " Here I am;" said Mr. L. and without further ex planation they started off. Mr. Lien enweber stayed by the boat all night and they caught a good lotof Salmon. The next morning the fisherman ten dered Mr. L. the wages due to him as boat-puller, but he refused it, saying that he was satisfied with the result as it was and presented the amount to the fisherman. Mr Lienenweber is noted for his energy, and this is but one evidence of the secret of his suc cess at Astoria. OCCIDENT HOTEL ARRIVALS. ASTOltTA, May 17, 1S7G. T D Marks & uife, S. 1 Win M Dnt, X. Y.

It is thought that the society for the prevention of cruelty to animals will stop the great mustang race in Xew York. It was proposed to ride three hundred and five miles in fifteen hours on thirty horses, to start at 4 o'clock, a. m., and complete the ride at seven o'clock, p. m. The race was to have come off on Tuesday, but was postponed until Thursday on account of rain. The horses are all in good condition and parties in charge of them are confident of success as the horses are very wild. The men in charge will mount and ride all those which show :my evidence of uiiniliness so that when the rider in the race mounts they will be docile and will not give him any trouble. The STew York Herald Editorial says the list of the participants in the Fifth Avenue Hotel conference, show that it is almost without Republicans, ex-Republicans or quasi-Republicans, and consists hi unequal proportions of soreheads and sentimentalists. The sentimentalists being mere tenders of the soreheads, disappointed ex-officers and ex-candidates for office make so large a figure in the gathering that the public will not fail to note their presence and specidate on their mo tives. The World says Sulmrz is the life of the meeting and in his speech he said he wanted the council to aim at something definite, and suggested that the nomination of Bristow oe that something. The Tribune savs we do not sympathize with the dispo sition manifested in some quarters, to carp at the gentlemen engaged in the new Fifth Avenue conference. Among them are some of the ablest publicists, ripest scholars and most efficient pub lic servants in the country. To-day will probably give us the real work of the conference, and we have great confidence that it will be good work, sure to bear good results, both at Cin cinnati and St. Louis. The Chicago Tribune's Sioux City special says r Letters received here this morning from reliable par ties, dated Black Hills, April 26, bring most discouraging accounts of affairs in that country. The Indians are be coming very troublesome, frequently killing men at their own doors, steal ing horses and committing other dep redations. These letters say the stories of gold being there in paying quantities are lies. Provisions are scarce and high,, and great many men are on the verge, of starvation. Miners are- leaving as fast as they arrived a months ago. Sargent's bill to restrict immigra tion of the Chinese to. the "United States was brought up in the Senate on the 16th. Senator Mitchell spoke at length in favor of the;biil, and it was finally referred to the committee on foreign relations. In the 2sew York new party cau cus on Tuesday, Charles Francis Adams, Jr., being loudly called upon, made a brief speech in favor of reform and honesty, and concluded by say ing that among the Presidential can didates there is one whose name stands unblemished before the coun try to-day and by nominating him the Republican party will gain the vote of every honest man, and that man is Secretary Bristow. Ap plause. The old memories of war are dying out, and people cannot be frightened into supporting any one. In the Democratic party, also, there is one man, skilled in political life, a gentleman of well known capacity, Governor Tilden, whom, if they nominate, I will support as the next best thing to Bristow. Cheers. If good men are not nominated by either party then we will put forward a candidate of our own. Thank heaven this is no hard-cider cam paign in this centennial year. Mrs. Myra Clark Gaines left STew York on Tuesday for iSTew Orleans, where fortified with the recent decis ion of the Supreme Court, she will re new her suits for her estate. Since the delivery of this ojmiion, it is said she has been offered $250,000 cash and one-fifth of the j)rocceds when recov ered, if she would resign her interest to a pool made up in Ils'ew York 'ro speculate in the enterprise. It is thought probable that the chy of Xew Orleans will compromise with her and give her bonds in retinn for a quit claim deed of the land. The Sun's Washington special on . Chicago pension agent matters saj's it is not the intention of the President to remove IT. S. Marshal Campbell, but he will be required to return to Miss SAveet the amount she paid Camp bell; also the amount she paid young Campbell for the sinecure position. Advices-from Salonica say the to tal number of arrests in. connection with the outrage there is fifty. A pre liminary inquiry has been begun. The excitement hi the town is gradually subsiding. Rear Admiral Jno. L. Worden, of the XJ. S. navy, sailed from Nice, May 16th, in the American man-of-war Franklin, for Salonica. We are hi receipt of coines of official letters from Washington infor ming us that the Light-house Board is of the opinion that "it will be neces sary at some time to establish a Light house on Tillamook head, and that it should be a light of the first order but considering the state of the public finances, and tiie necessity for econo my, it is the opinion of the Board that Congress should not be asked for ap propriations for work at this locality at this time." A sheet of Post-office paper, worthy of note, folded into a form of 10-mo. reached the Astorulx office last night. It is addressed to railway Post-office clerks, route agents and postmasters, and has traveled from Portland Oregon to Portland Maine, thence to Astoria. The "marking stamps" of the various offices through which it passed on its travels, shows that it left Portland, Oregon, April 18; passed Ogden April 24; took the fast mail on the New York and Cliica go route April 30, reached Boston May 1st, also Portland, Maine, on the same day. and .returned to Astoria, Oregon, May loth.
