ASTORIA, OREGON :
iT. C. IRELAXI EDITOR
WEDNESDAY. Iay 24. S76.
Under the above head the San
Francisco papers speak in plain terms
in censure of Capt. Connelly, of the
steamship Colorado, -which arrived
from Hongkong, via Yokohama$ on
the 19th, bringing an addition of
nearly 900 ft the Celestial population
to this Coast. And, as if this in
itself was not bad enough, that dread
ed scourge, the smallpox, had mani
fested itself among the poor coolies
during the voyage, its ravages having
been allayed apparently but a few
days before the vessel reached port.
But notwithstanding this added cir
cumstance to render the arrival an
unwelcome one, the commander
availed himself of the early hour at
which he entered the Golden Gate to
avoid the Health Ofiicer, and disre
garding all the well-known health
regulations of the port, actually took
his vessel with its living cargo of in
fected Chinese to the Pacific "Mail
Company's wharf, thus imperiling the
health of the entire community.
This glaring violation of law and
utter contempt of the health ordi
nances and regulations of the port
were promptlj' reported to the Board
of Health when that body very prop
erly ordered legal proceedings to be
commenced at once against both the
commander of the ship and 'the Pa
cific Mail Company. It is hoped that
these proceedings will be vigorously
prosecuted, and that the utmost pen-
alty will be inflicted. The present j will remain until some proposed im
conditionof our laws unfortunately provements at Tokes Point Light

persistent introduction of moral dis- j companionable gentleman, and we

ship-loads of heathen Chinese and j
purchased slaves ; but when to that
unpunishable offense is added an
other, lighter in reality, but which
the laws do recognize as an offense,
and one which, m its consequences to
the communitv, may be verv serious, doing more for the interests of Eastern

Oregon City vraning on the Cciiten-

but the following from tlu Enterprise
yesterday, sliows that the people there
must not slumber if; they pro,ose to
prosper. The Enterprise saya: f0re -
gonclty has sustained another blow
aimed av her material -prosperity, by
the taking off of the steamer E. N.

boat, which has been of great benefit
to the commnnity and lus beenexcln-
sivcly patronized by out; freighters
while the travel has" been more even -

steamboat. It behooves us as citizens
tcf see to it immediately, tliat a boat

as the convenience of shippers not
to say the danger of being harmed by
inimicaMreight tariffs by the power
ful corporations that are seemingly to
control the transportation routes here8
after demand that each business
man and property holder shall con
jointly take steps to protect these in
terests now seemingly in peril. We
understand it is the intention that the
boats of the 0. S. IS". Co. line will
touch here occjisionally when ther are
hailed, but no spasmodic service every
second or third day will answer.
"Here is a town with two of the
largest flouring mills in the State hav
ing a capacity of sixty tons of freight
per day. A woolen mill, whose
freightage will also count considerable;
the tub factory and the Alden Fruit
Drying Company, all adding their
quota to business, besides the numer
ous extensive orchards between here
and Portland, and the Oswego Iron
"Works whose manufacture ar"reiites
ten tons per day, counting all these
streams of commerce, it appears plain
to us that there would be no difficul
ty in sustaining a daily service be
tween here and Portland; the inter
est of our city demands it, and a lit
tle conjoint effort on the part of our
citizens will secure it for us, beyond a
doubt. The Centennial year must not
usher in the era of Oregon City re
trocession and decay, unless it is con
fessed that all ambition and enterprise
have died out from among her cit
izens." C. "W. Holt, Esq., special corres
