from the dropsy, returned last evening
from eastern Oregon not improved by

the climate of different latitudes, from

Mr. M. McCormick, an experi
enced brick maker from Portland, has
left a sample brick at this office, made
from clay alone, which practically
demonstrates the fact that brick: of .first
class quality can be manufactured on
the Klaskanine, if they can't be made
.any nearer to Astoria. If anybody
about here, tired of paying sixteen to
twenty dollars per thousand for brick
want a few laid down at Astoria for
about seven and a half to eight dollars
now is the time to show your hand.
Mac is chopping cord wood just now,
but stands ready to make the brick on
short notice. It can be done.
A flash of light from the battery
guns, at Forts Canby and Stevens last
night, when the sunset signal gave
note of another expiring day, was mis
taken by numerous visitors at Astoria
as a ray of sunshine. Ex-Mayor Stroud
of Scio, was so struck in admiration
of the scene that it is said he actually
got up from the table, in the Occident
dining room, where he was working out
a special Clam contract, and gazed
at it through an open window, nor
could he be convinced that it was not
the sun that produced the illumination
until after the evidence of several gen
tlemen had been taken to prove that
it could not possibly be from the sun
unless it was considerably behind' time,
and being an experienced railroad man
3roud knew very well that could not
he the case, on down grade with a wet
track. Did you notice the apparition 1
The Oregon Steamship Companys
steamer John L. Stephens, Capt. Mac
ie, will leave Astoria to-morrow morn
ing at two o'clock, for San Francisco.
Mr. Villard, President of the company,
is among the passengers, en route to the
east, and will be absent about one year.
His first business when there will be
to secure and forward the iron for the
Oregon Central Railroad, from St. Jo.
to Junction. He will also start the
construction of another new steamship
for the line, not being able to purchase
one ready built, and will then direct
earnest efforts in behalf of introducing
Oregon amongst people who will come
and settle here. Mr. Villard well un
derstands the wants of Oregon, sees
that if we had here 200,000 more en
terprising citizens it would be a com
munity of unparalleled thrift and im
portance. We are pleased to know
that he is pleased with Oregon. ' ,
X7NITY AND OYSTERVILLE.
"When summer travel begins this
year the Hwaco Steam Navigation Co.
will "put on a daily line of first class
passenger boats between Astoria, the
Forts, and Unity. Loomis & Caruth
ers are prepared, with easy coaches
and good horses, to make close con
nection on the romantic beach drive
between Unity and Oysterville, one of
the loveliest routes for tourists on the
Pacific coast. Capt. John Brown and
others, owners of as handsome fleet of
sailing craft on Shoalwater bay, as ever
spread canvas or won a silver cup at a
regatta, .are prepared to do that mag
nitice scorje of water in the grandest
manner possible. These are but a part
of the out door preparations in that di
rection for the entertainment of Sea
side "visitors. Not a. stone will be left
unturned to secure the most ample ac
commodation the country and its va
ried attractions afford, both inside and
out. The Pacific Hotel at 0fsterville
has been doubly increased in the ex
tent of its capacity, thoroughly reno
vated and refurnished, and will more
than maintain its former reputation for
excellence. The Bay View House, at
Unity, under the management of the
popular caterer C. H. Dexter, has been
refitted, and many new and attractive
features added to the grounds, with
the surroundings about Unity, embra
cing beautiful and shady groves for
those who prefer camping, its accessi
bility to Cape Hancock, within one and
a half miles of Fort Canby, the Light
house and Pilot's look-jut, taking in
an expanse of old Ocean beyond the
limits of ordinary vision, but within
range and track of vessels and steam
ers employed in the commerce of Ore
gon, Puget Sound and the British pos
sessions, with the numerous lakes front
ing on Bakers bay, the advantages for
fishing, driving, hunting walking, surf
bathing in the Ocean, and warm bath
ing in the bay near the house, at pleas
ure, free teams to the beach and free
boats on the bay, neat summer cotta
ges, etc., etc., all together combine to
make Unity an attractive and desirable
resort, with, scarcely a parallel on the
coast. Then it is so easily reached,
visitors from Portland, and other parts
interior, can be landed at Unity from
Astoria without cliange in one and a
half hours, by either steam or sail,
passing within sight of the batteries at
both Forts Stevens and Canby, free
from dust and the annoyances of bag
gage. Once at Unity they are within
the gates of a Summer Paradise. The
ride'" to Oysterville is over a road as
smooth as a house floor, trackless as
sands can be that are washed twice ev
ery twenty-four hours by the ocean
CLATSOP AND SEA-SIDE.
We have not heard what programme
is to be inaugurated for the entertain
ment of visitors to Clatsop Plains, for
the coming season. The Sea-Side Ho
tel (Ben Holladays), has been leased
by a gentleman from California, Mr.
J. C. Olmsted, and will be opened on
the 1st of July. The Summer House,
kept for so many seasons past by Mrs.
Cloutrie, is now ready to receive visit
ors. We are not advised positively
with respect to the route which travel
will take, but presume that the Katata
will connect at Skipanon with stages
down the Plains, as formerly, and that
steamers of the Oregon Steam Naviga
tion Company will land passengers at
Fort Clatsop, connecting with convey
ances to the sea-side by the new route
ASTORIA HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS
Will this season be at least three times
greater than those of any former year,
in the history of the city. -The Occi
dent, which has the justly merited
reputation of being the best kept hotel
north of San Francisco, has been com
pletely and thoroughly refitted and the
proprietors, Messrs. Megler & Wright,
are unsparing in their attentions to the
public. The new Parker House, just
approaching completion with doubled
rooms and conveniences, will soon be
occupied, while the Globe, the Altoona
and other Hotels and Restaurants are
newly fitted, to all of which will be ad
ded next month the new and magnifi
cent hotel of Mr. S.N. Arrigoni, known
as the Prince of caterers. His build
ing will be finished inside to-morrow
evening, but of this more anon.
The New York people vow to let
Dom Pedro alone when he returns to
that city. This will suit the Dom,

Mr. A. S. Mercer, weU known to

vocate of immigration, and a practical
worker in that field, leaves by the
Stephens with his family on a tour to

as stiU working in the cause wherever
he may cast his lot.
The World says of "Reddy the
Blacksmith :" He was a robber and a
murderer, a systematic ruffian, a pretty
substantial and thoroustfi-oinp- drunk
ard, and his twenty-odd years of resi
dence in New York were fuH of
offenses against the peace, property
and decency of the city as the years of
any other person who has ever dwelt.
We clip the foUowing "marine
news item" from a Portland paper :
John Martin, a tipsy sailor, found a
buggy and horse standing in front of
a store t on First street, which he
"boarded" and sailed about in for a
couple of hours and then returned
them, when he was arrested. The
court wiH examine his "log" in the
P. Greene's presence
in Washington while Ms case was
undergoing investigation, Clymer
formed an opinion that Greene was
an honorable, conscientious gentleman.
If Clymer had met him one time, at
the Occident Hotel in San Francisco,
in the presence of ladies, would he
say that much for Greene, who is a dis
reputable curso on general principles.

--The British bark Snowdon recent
ly had a narrow escape from being lost.
The vessel left Rio for Point de Galley
and when a few days out the captain,
mate and two seamen sickened and
died of yeUaw fever. There was no
one left on board to take, observations,
and the boatswain took command and
appointed the steward or cook mate ;
then by hugging the shore he succeeded
in getting the vessel back to Rio, after
struggling three weeks with adverse
currents and winds That boatswain
deserves to be remembered in a sub
stantial way by the owners. The in
cident teaches the desirability of ac
qiiiring a knowlede of the science of
navigation on the part of aH who go
down to the sea in ships and do busi
ness upon the great waters. Itis often
the case that aU hands below the mas-'
ter and mates are. entirely ignorant of
directing a ship on her course in emer
gencies like the above.
