real estate will not advance so outra

of the country in consequence of this
spurt of local industries in that vicinity.

Tillamook bay and Gray's harbor by
Astorians, will we hope be the means of
developing a more lively interest be

have always contended that there were
reciprocal advantages, obligations and
rights that ought to be fostered, and now
that these fisheries are started, acciden
gifrf though it be, we hope to see great
fcood result from the beginning.

COI'XTY COMMI.sMOXRKS COURT.
For some days past the Commissioners
court of Clatsop county has been in
session at the Court-house, transacting
business for the dear people. The last
term of the Circuit-court was a very ex
pensive one, but it seems that it was un
avoidablejustice had to be done, as is
attested by the seven or eight convicts,
added to the list at the Oregon Peniten

Cut ix Tin: I Ie ai. Mr. J. P. Miller
lfarrowly escaped serious injury a few
days ago, on Gray's river. He was pass

on his shoulder, when he stumbled and
fell headlong, and in the act of recover

blad of the axe tov eJTcct in his scalp.
He bled profusely, but summoned aid
ami soon stopped the bleeding, and is
now recovering from the effects of the
Bucked too Hard. We regret to
learn that Major Hibbard and Capt.
Burns are bursted. Two years ago they
formed a partnership in San Francisco
and went into the stock business. They
got along well enough for a time, but in
the crash of a few months ago they were
broken all to pieces. Neither one came
out really worth a dollar. Both are
there yet and from all that we can learn
have been having a rather hard time of
it The major and captain are honor
able gentlemen and. both have estimable
families, and we much regret the mis
fortune that has befallen them. Stocks
are the great curse of the coast and
yearly ruin their hundreds and thousands.

Notes and Comments.
A singular and frightful case of

English papers. While the bark
Crown Prince of St. John, New
Brunswick, wts on a voyage in No
vember last from the Peruvian coast
to Falmouth, England, the entire
crew, fourteen in number, became ill
on account of the bad quality of the
pork supplied. The vessel was hove
to for a fortnight, and at the expira
tion of that time three of the men
went mad. Six men died on the
Falkland islands, whither the captain
had turned his course, and the rest of
the crew were sent into hospital. The
Crown Prince reached Southampton
on the OOtli of July and an investiga
tion has been ordered "by the authori
ties. The statistics of thepostage stamp
branch of the postal department of the
government are almost appalling for
numbers. The total number of stamps
of all kinds and denominations, inclu

June 30, was 1,000,353,909, the value
of which was S2G,525,830 49 The
Postmaster-general recently ordered a
count to be made of all the stamps in
the vaults of the Continent:! Bank

that they have on hand 1S2,0M,1G0

Good Torn. The little steamer
Los Angelos arrived in San Francisco
on the 27, in excellent time, beating
the Ajax. This is not the fastest time
between the two ports, however, the
Orillamme having made it in 58 hours
and 10 minutes; the John L. Stephens
in 54 houra and 45 minutes, and the
George W. Elder in 53 hours. The
Elder is the fastest vessel on the route
to our notion; but we believe that the
Dakota, with a draft of thirteen or
fourteen feet, is the fastest ship out of
San Francisco in the whole Northern
trade, nor do we believe she ever was
a match for the Oregonian, now plying
in Chinese waters, but first designed
