Jleet of vessels was leaving this port for
an inland voyage to Portland, where
they will receive wheat suflicient to bal

tow as follews: The Pact o us in tow of
the Columbia; Candida in low of the
E. X. Coeke: Beecroft in tow of the
A lire, and the Abeona in tow of the
A Fixe Fleet. The licet of vessels
and steamers at Astoria on Sunday last
was a very tine one indeed, consisting of
eleven vessels, as follews: The German
bark Henrietta, from Newcastle. X. S.
W.. laden to twenty feet draft with coal,
a portion of whiclt will be discharged
here; the British bark Drumclogi 05
days from Otago. in ballast this vessel
has a name which will remind readers
of the fatuous Drumclog battle, in an

the berth preparing to receive her cargo
for Australia; the British ship Oban

and two other British vessels, with
wheat, which cargoes are not cemplete:
the British bark Aheona from Liver

San Francisco in ballast, to load for Eu

from the north and the Ajax departed

Inox Wokks Sold. A sale has taken
place of tlte iron works at Oswego, in
cluding the smelting furnace and all the
lands and mines of the company in
Clackamas county. The extreme low
prices for iron have made it impossible
to manufacture upon the basis of opera
tions pursued by the old company. The
purchasers are Messrs. Seeley, Brown &
Creighton. three young men who are in
timately acquainted with iron manufac
ture, having been brought up in the bus
iness. Mr. Seeley was formerly super
intendent of the works. Mr. Creighton
has been used to iron manufacture all
his life and Mr. Brown Hs one of the
firm of V. B. Scott & Co.. owners of the
City of Salem and Ohio, as is also Mr.
Seeley. These gentlemen will probably
recommence manufacture of iron next
sirring, and from personal acquaintance
with the trade we may expect economy,
good management ami reduction of ex
penses that will surely enable them to
succeed. The purchase price of the
property was less than fifty thousand
dollars, while the cost and outlay of the
old company was probably four times
that. The excellent quality of Oregon
iron will insure ready sale,"and in the
hands ef: nien of practical experience
and thorough, energy we may krok to the
development of an extensive aijd profit

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It looks as though the Czar of
Russia had better get out of the Turk
ish empire and hasten back to his
own dominions and his own capital as
soon as possible. There are signs of
discontent among the Russian people
with his imperial Majesty's millitary
operations that may result in danger
to his government.
The ground of acptittal from
murder upon which a young colored
man eseaped at Rockport, liut, re
cently, was that he believed his vic
tim to be a ghost. He was passing
through the woods at night with a
gun, when suddenly a white object
appeared in his patlnvay. Terror
stricken, he mechanically raised his
gun and fired, bringing the ghost
down mortally wounded, which turned
out to be a colored neighbor walking
home with a white sheet wrapped
It is estimated that the damages
which Pittsburg must pay in conse
quence of the destruction of property
by the strike will increase the taxes
of the city from six to twelve million
dollars; In other words, for the next
twenty years every resident of Pitts
burg, who pays taxes, will have his
annual burden doubled because of
this destruction of property. This is
a fine outlook for thrifty people who
wish to lay up something for a rainy
day. Verily the rainy day came too
soon for Pittsbttrgers.
The testimoiry of two of the fore
men of Joseph P. Hale's burned piano
forte factory, before Fire Marshal
Sheldon recently, shows what a fire
I trap that eight-story affair was. Ac
1 cording to their evidence there were
no fire extinguishers in the building,
although it avjis liable to take fire any
moment. There were no directions
given what to do in case of a fire.
There were pails of water in the build
ing, but none kept specially to extin
guish fires. On the first floor, where
the late fatal fire began, there had
been no water in the water pipes for
a year past, and there was no pump to
force it up with. If the account of
these men are true, there must have
been criminal carelessness on the part
of the owners of the factory, who had
i 390 lives in their charge. It is time
that something was done by the city
government to punish men who erect
towering factories that tumble down
in a wind squall, and neglect the
I most ordinary precautions for pro
tecting the lives of those who occupy
An English paper says the hopes
of those who are looking for the arrival
of the Cleopatra's jNeedle, and expect
to find in it either a thing of beauty
or a probable adornment of the Metro
polis, are likely to be rudely shaken
by the disillusioning process adopted
by the Board of Works. A wooden
imitation of; the obelisk has been erec
ted in Palace square, and the effect it
produces is by no means pleasing.
It at once dwarfs and is dwarfed bv its
surroundings. The broad massive
lines of the plinth bring out in too
conspicuous evidence and almost taw
dy minuteness of the ornamentation
of the House of Parliament; at the
same time the height of those build
ings is so great that the real grandeur
of the monolith is as lost as the spec
tator, and conveys to his mind no idea
of its real size and massiveness. In
other respects, the present site is most
unhappy. The base of the column
blocks up the space between the two
gardens facing Westminister Hall, and
the Ixeedle itself entirely obstructs the
vjew of tlte statue of the George Can
ning from those passing along the road.
Similarly, Hie whole effect of the Peel
statue would be lost by tlioso who look
j ai it in face,
