Not alt. Dbad (.'. W Lawson in

that' the fools are not all dead, please in
sert from to-davs dispatches: -The Tri
bune says the report is that Queen Yic-1
toria. Prince of Wales and ihe Duke of
Argyle are all investigators of spirit
ualistic phenomena, and furthermore it
is said 'thai the princess Ueatrice is a
very line medium.
Hostile. The Puget sound papers
cannot find anything too hostile to print,
against Goodall, Perkins & Co., for
.-ending their earners to Astoria. The
Couriv-r says : -Tlris northern const has
been the graveyard of aged and infirm
steamships long enough and we prefer
the owners of such craft should st ek
eJsewhcrefor living freights for their
floating collins.' Such jealous express
ions cant be helped, but in Astoria the
"Can Can" can be stopped.
Puget Sorxi) Fisir The Oregonian
suys that Mr. G. T. livers says 'that
somebodj on Paget sound says "fish are
liy-ge and run late in- Zybvember. It is
scarcely time for us to get the silver sal
mon in any quantity us they usually do
not run until the others have stopped for
a week or ten days. Indians all think,
and whiles predict, a good run until
November. We have, already packed
4.500 cases, and. tlie newr run of salmon
bids fair to be large. The silver salmon
are large and fat and deep red color, and
supexior- camied, to-Columbia river fish.'
The Can Can in Astoria.
The Salem and Portland press have
had considerable to say with respect
to to "Can Can," a traveling exhibi
tion of so called female minstrels, to
witness whose performances, the bills
say "positively no ladies will be ad
mitted." Yesterday an agent who
represents this exhibition called at our
ollice to leave an advertisement for an
exhibition to le given at Liberty hall
to-moiTow evening. We had formed
a decided repugnance to the exhibition
from Inning been shown, (by council
man Warren), one of the little yellow
dodgers, which may be considered
obsene, at least we think if you arc a
parent you would not like to have
such posters thrown around where one
of 3Tour little boj-s could pick it up and
cany it to the family fireside, hence
we presumptorily declined his adver
tisement and his money, and meeting
with members of the city council after
wards we were forced to bring it to
this attention, and the following letter
is the result of that interview:
To the Clfri Treasurer ami in the City A udi

The Pxkxowx. Say a writer from
Seaside, in the Oregenian: "Pissing
along the shore, we come to the graves
of two unknown sailors, with no inscrin
tion save this: 'Found upon the beach.
April 1SG.V Here, perhaps. ujon a
foreign strand, a kind father, a tender
husband, ti ln'loved brother or son. lias

under very unfavorable circumstances,
night before last, but if we may be jvr
mitted to judge from the samples of fruit
left at our ollice, Mr. "MeCormick may
feel proud of hLs success in finding the
cream of tlie country. His boat, the Fl

concluded to take the Gazelle, crossing
Cathlamet bav, when his small boat
swamped and he lost about SKW worth

JSt-Ji is too late in the day to argue
to intelligent business men the ptopriciy
and necessity of advertising themselves.
The laet i too well organized now that
only those, houses which advertise judi
ciously prosper, tnd only thoe pull
through the haid times successfully which
keep their nattier and vares constantly
before the public eye. The experience of
every intelligent and educate I bu-iness
man is clear upon this point, and hence
the column? of a nsw.-paper, especially
in what nre called ''dull times, ,? will give
the roter of the business men of a place
who may be relied upon as intelligent,
prudent and enterprising. Only those

COnUESPOXDEXCE OF THE ASTORIA.
Ill accordance with your request
that some person would write up a
description and statement of the capa
bilities of Tillamook county, I submit
Iii geographical position Tillamook
county is bounded on the north by
Clatsop county, on the east by Wash
ington and Yamhill counties, on the
south by Benton county, and on the
west by the ocean, having a coast line
of about sixty-five miles and contain
ing something over 4(50 square miles.
It contains two b;i3s, named respect
ively Tillamook and Netarch; the
former being the larger of the two,
being about fourteen miles in length
and live in width, on an average; Jtnd
having eighteen feet of water on tne
bar at low tide, vide Kinglow's report
to the U. S. Coast survey.) The en
trance channel runs due east and west,
being perfectly safe for vessels drawing
from seventeen to twenty feet. The
anchorage is good, as the bay is pro
tected on the south and west by a
range of mountains and sand hills
which render it perfectly safe from
south and west gales.
Netarch bay is about the same in
length as Tillamook and about three
miles in width. The channel, in
starting from the bay, runs about
northwest until it reaches the bar,
when it turns rather abruptly to the
southwest. It is only safe for vessels
of light draft. . This bay is noted for
Both bays contain an 'abundance of
salmon, clams, crabs, pogies, iioim-
ders, torn cods, blue bass, ducks and
geese, while the rivers emptying into
them are well stocked with mountain
trout. About two-thirds of the county
is heavily timbered; in the low lands
and tlats flourish the spruce, hemlock,
cottonwood and alder, while on the
hills and mountains grow iuxuriantlv -
tlie fir and Larch interspersed with a
line growth "of cedar, among which
sport an abundance of elk, deer and
bear, to say nothing of coon, beaver,
mink, muskrat and fishers.
The county contains some of the
nnest land m the state, consisting of
prairie, river bottom and tide land;
the river bottom being the most pro
ductive and of which there is plenty
to be taken. Wheat, oats, barley,
iiax, potatoes and vegetables of all
kinds grow luxuriantly; apples, pears,
l,,l",,l .wiiv-iiiw.j, nwwuwnw,vmimiuj,
strawberries, and in fact all small
fruits do well, but the staple produc-
tion of Tillamook county is grass.
Timothy, red tup, orchard grass, blue
grass, and clovers of all kinds grow to
perfection, making it, as it is, the
iinest dairy county in the state. The
butter made hero is the best in the
Oregon market, and the amount made
is steadily growing every vear. Jit
order to develop this branch of indus
try and render it as it will eventual y
be the main business of the county, we
need the same plan and system as that
used so successfully in the state of
New York, namely, the establishing of
clioese ana butter lactones at proper
would be a surer investment than any
other branch of business m the state,
butter never failing to bring from 20
to ou cents per pouim wnoiesate :wm
is the average hole for the summer,
which, say at 20 cents per poun.t
would amount to $2,000 for 100 cows;
and sis it is calculated bv experts that
3 pounds of cheese cm be made to one
oi butter, we have the amount oi u,-
000 pounds which, sav at 12i cents
per pound would amount to 3.250,
to sav nothing c.f the pork made at the
