Col. Milleh. From all sources we
hear the most excellent reports concern
ing Col. MHIer in the campaign against
Joseph and his band of hostile savages.
Col. Miller won distinction in his ser
vices in the Modoc war also, and we are
informed that Gen. Howard is credited
with baying that if he could he should
have given Col. Miller command in
Idaho and Montana. We presume that
nothing but red tape stands in the way
of placing Col. Miller at the topmost
round as a brave commanding general.
The Bkig Ska Waif. This little
vessel owned in Astoria by Mr. G. W.
Hume, is entitled to the palm. She has
won the laurels for rapid work. Leav
ing Astoria at 8 o'clock last Sunday
morning she arrived at Gardner on Mon
day, and had all her passengers and
freight discharged, for Mr. II nine's can
nery, and was again at her berth at the
dock in Astoria on Thursday evening,
ready to load yesterday for another voy
age, "if any clipper ship can .show'a
better record than that for sailing, we
should be pleased to hear of it.
WALLAMET Tit ANSPOHTATIOX. The
S. T. Church is a handsome steamer, be

portation company; DocMcCully is the
purser. The new lighter .spoken of sev
eral days since as being built by U. B.
Scott & Co. for ''toting' wheat over
shoal water on the Wallamet was taken
up to Wheatland Inst Sunday and loaded
with 1800 bushels of the cereal. The
City of Salem, with 1400 sacks on board,
then took the barge in tow and started
for the metropolis where they arrived
safely, fully demonstrating that "some
things can be done as well as others.'
Baptist Sunday School Concent.
It having been announced that there
would be a rehearsal of the Baptist
Sunday school to-day at three o'clock in
the new church, at the request of Kev.
Mr. Burchett we give notice that the
time has been changed to 12 o'clock,
noon, to-morrow, as the workmen in the
church will not be ready to give it up at
the appointed hour. The concert will
be given in the new church to-morrow
evening at half-past seven o'clock. All
are invited to attend. All the pupils and
teachers are requested to be present at
the rehearsal, at 12 o'clock, noon.
Xoctuhxal Visit. Mr. Woodward
of this city who has established a board?
ing house on Tongue point for the ac
commodation of the hands employed
upon the buoy depot, reports a visit
night before last at his camp from two
very large sized cougars. The wild
couple probably wanted to find out what
was going on in their favorite haunts,
where they have so long been accus
tomed to going down to the waters edge
for a meal of salmon, sturgeon, sea lion,
or seal. Alas for these carniverous
quadrupeds of our forests, they are, like
the man who has lost his grip, fast play
Out of Office. The Mullett who
planned the Astoria Custom-house is ot t
of office now, and surrendering his re
publicanism, as a democratic paper puts
it, "in liis anxiety to put a mansard roof
on the Hayes administration.' has of
fered his services to the democratic
state central committee as a stump
speaker in the present canvas in Ohio.
It is needless to say his magnanimous
offer was refused. Democrats, as well
as republicans, are beginning to see that
proselytes of the stamp of this fellow
are only a curse to the party that accepts
of their services. Iligby wis a demo

WRITTEN" FOR THE ASTORIAX".
IE you cannot on the ocean
Sail janiong the swiftest fleet,
Hocking on the mighty billows,
Laughing at the storms you meet ;
You can stand among the sailors
Anchored yet within the bay,
You can lend a hand to help them
As they launch their boat away.
If you are too .weak to journey
Up the mountain, steep and high,
You can stand within the valley
As the multitudes go by ;
You can chant in happy measures
As they slowly pass along ;
Tho' they may forget the singer,
They will not forget the song.
If you cannot in the conflict
Prove yourself a warrior tme,
If, where fire and smoke are thickest,
There's no work for you to do ;
"Where the battle-field is silent,
You can go with gentle tread,
You can bear away the wounded,
You can cover up the dead.
If you cannot in the harvest
Gamer up the richest sheaves ;
Many a grain, both ripe and golden,
Which the careless reaper leaves,
You can glean among the briars
Growing rank against the wall ;
And it may be that the shadows
Hide the heaviest wheat of all.
If you have not gold or silver
Ever ready at command ;
If you cannot toward the needy
ltcach an ever open hand,
You can visit the afflicted,
O'er the erring you can weep ;
You can be a tme disciple,
Sitting at the Saviour's feet.
Do not, then, stand idly waiting
For some nobler work to do,
For your heavenly father's glory,
Ever earnest, ever true ;
Go and toil in any vineyard,
Work in patience and in prayer ;
If you want a field of labor.
You can find it anywhere.
II. S. WORSI.KV,
A Smashing Jeiit. A few days ago
the driver of the St. Charles coach, Port
land ran his team upon a celestial knock
ing him senseless. He compromised by
paying the doctors bill. Last Wednes
day he collided with an express wagon,
anil knocked it into smithereens. Geo.
Coggan, when informed of the accident,
volunteered to pay the cost of repairs.
At the time of the collision, the smaller
vehicle was occupied by three or four
men. all of whom were thrown out, and
two of the party slightly injured. The
driver was not to blame, surely it must

Death, of Senator Bogy.
Dispatches yesterday announce the
death of Senator Bogy of Missouri, on
the 20th. The governor of that state
will be called upon to appoint a suc
cessor, as the legislature will not meet
for a year to come. It is rumored that
governor Phelps will resign in order
to secure the place for himself, on. ap
pointment by the lieutenant governor.
The political complexion of the senate
will not be changed in either event.
Senator Bogy's term would have ex
pired in 1879 if he had lived. He
was one of the most enterprising and
enthusiastic men of his state, and it
will be difficult to fill his place af

The Jacksonville Times ex
plains the object of Gov. Chad
wick's visit to southern Oregon.
Several years ago, there was loca
ted in southern Oregon, under
what is commonly called the five
hundred thousand acre grant, thou
sands of acres of land, which are
of no value to the state, lying as
they do, in many cases, on exten
sive beds of rock and on barren
mountains. In his recent visit to
Lake county, Governor Chadwick
had it in view to ascertain, by per
sonal observation, the nature of
the objection to these selections,
with the intention of presenting
them to the proper authorities, in
order to obtain in lieu of these
worthless tracts other selections,
lands available for purposes of ag
riculture and valuable for their
timber. AVe sincerely hope the
Governor may be successful in
carrying out his object.
