Senator Bayard of Delaware, in
answer to the question what he thought
about the policy of President JLiyes,
said: "I thank God for it. He has
disposed of the only obstacle that stood
between the suffering south and the
full enjoyment of her constitutional
liberties. He has not only carried
republicans with him, but I think he
has the cordial support of seventy-five
per cent, of his party. Many who
were doubtful at first now see the
time was ripe for a full restoration of
every southern state to self-government
under the constitution. The
history of the states since the troops
were removed is one of the very best
reasons why republicans and demo
crats should approve Hayes' policy on
The London Spectator in a re
markable article shows practically that
England is on the road to a dreary
condition, and looks fortvard to the
time when her factories will close one
by one; iron and coal mines will be
shut up like the tin mines of Cornwall,
fires in forges will bo blown out, the
ships will be laid to rot and so forth.
The only suggested remedy is the dis
covery of some new industry to replace
those already waning. The writer
who Is certified as one of the shrewdest
and ablest men of the day, speculating
upon the social and political future,
says: taxation will be light, for the
debt, the cause, will be gone, shaken
oli as bcj'Ond the new means; the
-throne will be gone :is too expensive
and useless, and the country, organized
like Switzerland, will be thinly peo
pled by a race with the hereditary
habits of education, but few desire or
opportunity of excitement. The in
herent conservatism of the people will
have its fullest scoxe, the ambitious
and the energetic will go elsewhere,
there will be nothing to do here.

Oregon to take the Oregonian upon the

to come here, and to be successful we
venture to say he should locate in Asto

this week by the announcement of a
'Can Can" performance in our city, but
thanks to ail those having control of the
public halls in Portland, the unscrup
lous wretches, who meditated to dupe
and injure the people of this city, have
been left without any place to open out
their performance. They appeared in
Salem last week, and the only pity is
that the big burdensome piece of human
ity, the manager, who alllicts the earth,
together with his miserable followers,
were not kept in the capital and put to
good use making briciv." The follow
ing notice of them, from the Salem
Mercury, is sufficient to show what a
fraud it is : ''Those persons who went

September 1, 1877.
Wednesday, August 29th we left
Astoria on the good ship City of Ches
ter, for San Francisco on a tour of ob
servation and pleasure. Our company
cansisted of the writer, Mr. Harry
Thompson, Mrs. C. Lienenwebsr and
three children. We left the Astoria
dock at 5 o'clock p. m., about thirty
minutes in advance of the Orizaba.
We had secured pleasantly situated
rooms, though rather small for. the
convenience of three persons; yet, on
account of the mildness of the weather j
the voyage was a pleasant one. Every
thing about the ship seemed to be in
perfect order, officers pleasant and
watchful, making the passengers feel
quite at home. Yery little sea sick
ness was experienced by any of the
passengers, and the bountiful supply
of provisions upon the tables was swept
off in haste. Seldom is old ocean so
quiet as on this trip, and I was truly
thankful for my stomach sake.
The Orizaba was seven miles astern
when leaving the river, but on Thurs
day morning she was about that dis
tance ahead. The day was bright
which gave us a fair view of the coast
as we passed along; about noon a fresh
breeze sprung up from the northwest,
when all sails were spread, and we
made about twelve knots an hour and
gained somewhat upon the opposition.
All day on Friday we were shrouded
by a dense fog, and we saw nothing
more but fog and water, until we were
entering the Golden Gate, at three
o'clock Saturday morning, excepting a
large school of porpoises which played
around our ship for fifteen or twenty
minutes. The voyage was rather mo
One little circumstance occurred,
which troubled my friend Harry a
little On Thursday morning as he
emerged from his state room, I ob
served that he had his coat buttoned
quite closely about his neck, and on
i miking inquiry if he was troubled
with sore throat or stiff neck; he re
plied, his troubles were of a different
nature; some person had borrowed his
vest, and had not returned it, conse
quently he was thus buttoned up.
We had various surmises how that
vest got out of the room, but finally
concluded that some unknown person
had during the night, thrust his arm
through the open .window.and the gar
ment through magic or;ne otner in
fluence had fastened upon his hand
and was thus carried away; which con
clusion proved to be a correct one.
We reported the circumstance to the
mate, who is a very polite and gentle
manly man, and the next morning be
fore the garment was needed he
brought it to the room. It was found
in the steerage, but no one claimed it.
Other articles were stolen on the ship,
showing that low rates of fare puts m
circulation the lowest order of human
At six o'clock our ship was fast at
the San Francisco dock, and as we had
concluded to proceed immediately on
to our old friend, Hev. Lewis Thomp
son, at Santa Clam, we had only time
to get to the depot and our morning
meal and we were off at a rapid rate,
arriving here at lOjjr o'clock a. m.,
forty-seven miles from San Francisco.
Our frifcnd gave us a joyful reception.

A few days since Perry Osburn of

using three horses. The binding was
all done by Henry Caplinger and
James Mothorn. The crop was an
average one for this season.

The Bee says: "A few days ago
we were compelled to remark the in
justice done by Corbett and Heid of
the board of trade, and immediately
the former's personal organ made a
lot of excuses for the blockhead com
nierciatist who signs the reports which
a foreigner prepares, and referred to
him to ascertain 'whether Mr. Corbelc
was a candidate for the senate,' just
as though any one had an idea thai he
could be elected."
We are right in the midst of our
harvest in th's country, says Win. H.
Hales, writing from Weston, Umatilla
county. I stood in one place on ray
farm one day la3fc week and could
count seven threshers running and
eleven headers, all within three miles
of each other. !Now how is that "for
high" for a stock raising country? But
we intend Umatilla county to cany
the banner for tl :s harvest in number
of bushels of grain per acre. Crops
are very good here. We have just
finished threshing a seven acre piece
of oats for Mr. F. J. Galliher, which
turned out 80 bushels per acre. There
is plenty of wheat here that will yield
50 to GO bushels per acre. Mr. Jemi-
son threshed off of 17 acres 102G bush
els of wheat, over GO bushels per acre.
The crops here will average 30 to 4.0
bushels per acre.
Henry Sampson has presented
the editor of the Courier with a genu
ine curiosity in the shape of an Indian
pipe which may be a thousand jrears
old for all we know to to the contrary.
It was found in the grave of an Indian
in Tillamook county. The canoe in
which it was found and in which the
Indian had been buried, had decayed
and rotted entirely away, giving evi
dence that the pipe had been made
mairy years ago. The pipe is made
of slate rock and is of peculiar design.
On the bowl is carved the face of a
man. A man is lying on his back on
the stem, with a ferocious looking ani
mal standing over him, having one
hand of the man in its monstrous
jaws. The work shows that it was
done with a patient hand and an inge
nious mind. The pipe and mountings
are well polished and do credifto
some of the modern sculptors.

Complaining. The Portland Sun
da' Welcome says: "Two weeks since
we published the greater part of tho
annual report Of the President and
Secretary of the Board of Trade, taken
from proof sheets. We have now
before U3 a printed copy of it, in pam
phlet form, in which we find a large
amount of statistical matter, most of
which has evidently been copied from
reports collated by the Commercial
Reporter, though Ave fail to find one
line of credit given to that journal.
This ma y be an oversight on the part
of the compilers, but it "3 one which
not only places them in a falsi posi
tion, in gaining then credit to which
they are not entitled, but it is an in
justice to those who have nothing bus
their labor for their pains. " Bro. Far
rish do not for pity sake complain
let the. Board of Trade "compilers"
have all the credit there is to be de
rived from tfie publication of such a
report as that one is.
