The Oregon Menagerie stained for
Philadelphia by the John L. Steph

3,300 pounds, 18i hands high, raised
in Polk county, forms the bigyest part

compose the balance of the train.
We are very thankful to Mr. AV.
A. Foster for his efforts to get and se

The last ballot was hardly cold in the

If the British bark Blanche,
which left this port October 23fch,
1875, for Cork for orders, with a car
go of wheat valued at $30,S00, has
reached her destination we are not
apprised of the faet. She was one of
those vessels wholly laden at Portland,
but was drawing only sixteen feet
when she went to sea. Has she ar
rived out? If so; why not reported?
Under "water, glass may be cut to
airy shape. The glass must be quite
level while the scissors are applied; it
is better to begin the cutting by ta
king off small pieces at the corners and
along the edges, and so reduce the
shape gradually; for if any attempt is
made to cut the glass all at once to the
shape, it is most likely to break just
where it is not wanted. Some kinds
of glass cut much better than others;
the softer glass cuts best. The scis
sors need not be sharp, as their action
does not depend much upon the state
of the edge piesented to the glass.
When the operation goes on well,
the glass breaks away from the scissors
in small pieces, in a straight line with
the blades. This method has often
proved very successful in cutting ovals,
etc., which would be very expensive
if ground cut; and though the edges
are not so smooth as may " be defined
for some purposes, the method is

Editor Astorian :
In my last, I mentioned that the
schooners H. L. Tiernan and Enter
prise were at this place loading with
lumber. Tiernan dropped down the
river on the 30fch, the Enterprise on
the 31sfcj to wait a favorable opportu
nity to cross the bar. On the first
both schooners made sail with a head
wind and reasonably smooth on the
The Tiernan failed to sight the
channel buoy, which by the "way is
said to be quite small, and at times
nearly, if not quite submerged, and in
consequence got too far to the north
ward, striking on what is known as J
the "North. Spic" quite heavily, Capt.
Mitchell soon got a cage channelward,
hoping to keep her from working any
further around the point after a short
time she swung from her first position
but struck heavily on ancther shoal
causing quite a leak. By constant
pumping she was kept upj and her
course shaped for the mill. She was
kept afloat all night, but when it be
came necessary to employ all hanids in
working the vessel to make headway,
she soon filled in which condition,
she arrived at the mill about 11
o'clock of the 2d with her entire -cargo.
The sailors give great credit to Ca.pt.
Mitchell for liis coolness and judgment
in working Iris vessel oft' in her dhificul
Jty. After removing her deck load
and a vigorous application of the pnui ip,
the water was reduced in her hole
some four feet, which shows thai, the
damage was not so great as was first
After getting her unloaded she will
be beached near here for repairs. Tl le
Pennonia, Capt. Wentworth arrive ;d
on the 4th and is now receiving tl le
hold cargo of the Tiernan. The En
terpi'ise, Capt. McAllep, made the b or
passage safely. It is much regrettod
here, that this accident has occurre d,
each one of the kind having tenden cy
to weaken the faith of seamen in t3he
safety of the p.issage from ocean to
bay, the cause in this seems to be at
tributable to insufficiency of tho buoy

ii5It i& not the polished orator
whos-hapes public opinion, but tho quiet
editor, whose, words go out to the public
ear without parade or ceremony. The
orator may please the ear or ticklethe fan
cy; but the editor does meie: lie satisfies
themmd, and carries to every household a
fund of knowledge. The oiator, by burn
ing words and impassioned eloquence,
may drive men to a sense of duty; but an
editor if he be true to his profession, at
trart men by tlm presentation of his
thoughts which appeal to the nobler qual
ities of head and heart. The words of the
orator diop from the lips and are lost,
while the words of the editor drop from
the press, and like coined money, pass for
what they are worth; if pure gold in the
truths conveyed, they pass current every
where. Eor good or evil, the editor
wields a powerlul influence. lie can exalt
or debase a community-. lie can advauco
public corruption. How important, then,

IIow Advertising Affects TJusi
XEss. Tiie man who advertises his "busi
ness, if what he offers for sale is honestly
what he represents it to be or what it ought
to be, is constantly assisted in his business
by those who have been attracted, to. him
and tested him. A bivyer ha read his
advertisement, and gone to his store or
work shop, warehouse, whatever it may
be, and tried what was recommended.
If it has satisfied him he is plea-ed and re
commends it to his neighbor, vhois likely
to go to the same place and tell his neigh
bor'in turn. And thus little rills started:
by his advertisement flow in upon him
from all sides, and the current of his busi
ness grow.s stronger and wider and more
rapid', and he prospers and grows rich, all
because strict attention in business he
added judicious advertising. But for this
he might have lingered on in the commu
nity lor years and his Im-inesS would
scarcely have been heard of.
