only long enough to wood up atFlavel's

22T tons of pigiron and salt, a por.jon of
the cargo oJ the Lritish ship IIo ion
Castk, which recently ained at Vic
toria. The Alexander is sharp and nar
iow model, is a copy of some English
tugthat hail from Liverpool. The hull
was built near "Sk'nners " on the Sound,
but all the rigging, engines, boiler, sky
lights, etc., were impoi ted irom Live:

destroyed and damaged this imported
property to the extent of nearly ?.).000.
She has a cylinder of .thirty-eight inches,
with five foot stroke, surface hcuiuiir
boilers of one inch icon and disconnect

ahead on one wheel and back on the
other, and make short turns. He ap

much attention from nautical citizens.

Pushing On. The Sunday Welcome
of tlie 7th says: The Oregon Steam
Xaigaton I'ompany are building a
wharf and warehouse iu PorJand on
what is known as the bone yardpro

feet of riwr frontage, and the wharf and
warehouse they are now buUding win
be two hundred tuid sixty-live feetliout
age by one hundred feet in width and
two stories high, with roof co ered with
nil ami tlie building and whan beaig
isolated, will make it comparatively fiie
proof. Besides tlve.yvo drops or inclines
for loading freight from ihe warehouse
there will be three elevators, which w-H
be run by water, for discharging freight
from the steamboats either to the lower
or upper wharf at any sage of water.
It Is designed lomn the freight tTucks
on to the platform of the elevators,
thence to either of the wharves, ami .as
these elevators wil1 fit the gangways o
their steamboats, itis estimated, that by
using the two gangways corresponding
with two of tlie elevators that one hun

Tabled. In the territorial council
on the Stli, the memorial praying for
the transfer of the land grant of the
Xortheni Pacific railroad to the Seat
tle mid Walla Walla railroad was tabbed
" Desert Lands." The commis
sioner of the general land oflice on the
8th, suspended all entries made under
the desert land law of July 25, 1S7G,
and will make investigation of the al
legations that under it valuable ara
ble lands h:.ve been entered, in viola
tion of its provisions.
Fish Legislation. In the terri
torial assembly on the Stli, Mr. Hath
away introduced a bill to regulate the
taking of salmon in the Columbia river
and its tributaries, requiring the fish
ermen to give them three days unmo
lested run. Referred to committee on
fisheries, and 200 copies ordered
Suspended. The publication of the
Olympia Daily Courier closed with its
issue of the Gth inst. It says: "For
the past year we have given much of
our time to it, with no expectation
of recompense, and we have not been
disappointed. When we get a good
deal of leisarc time on hands we may
resume it. Till then, good bye."
Company Organized. The Blue
mountain and Columbia river Rail
road company, says the La Grande
Gazette, is now organized, with S. G.
French, president. It has now 100,
000 of its capital stock subscribed,
which has already been assessed 10
percent., making 10,000. The di
rectors of the company expect to be
able to grade at least ten miles of its
road this fall and winter, work to com
mence at the Columbia river by the
first of next month, if possible.
Improved Order of Red ,tf sn.
Gen. Alvord, Paymaster General in
tlie United States army, after recount
ing the bloody work of Joseph, and
his hostile followers in the Nez Perces
band of savages says: Joseph has en
deavored to cany on the war in a civil
ized manner. So far as I can learn,
wherever his personal influence ex
tended in the conflicts in Idaho against
General Howard, in the months of July
and August, no scalping was perform
ed, and the lives of women and chil
dren were spared. If any exceptions
occurred they appear to have happened
with small parties of Indians not under
the ejTes of Joseph. In the Bitter
root valley of western Montana he did
not interfere with the settlers. We
learn of no scalps being taken in his
fight with General Gibbon near the
I3ig-hole pass of the Rocky mountains.
After that, when he took possession
of the stage road from Salt lake to
Montana, he turned back the stage
and all its passengers without inter
fering with them. And now we learn
that on going east from that road to-
4ards the Yellow-stone valley he cap
tured two ladies and sent them back
unharmed to the settlements. We say
all honor to the Nez Perces! They
merit the applause of the whole chris
tian world; not for making war, but
for the mode of making it.
Then the General goes on to enquire
"whence all this comes?" We should
answer, "Because of the Improved
Order of Red Men," hut Mr. Alvord
says no, and explains that "it is the
effect of the missionary establishments
of the American board of commission
ers, for foreign missions. In 183G the
Rev. H. H. Spalding was established
at the month of the Lamvai. And this
is the legitimate fruit of that mission."
Tlie Kez Perces, since Lewis and Clark
wintered among them in the winter of
lSCi-5, have been warmly the friends
of tlie Americans; and have been fighfc-
ingon our side in many of the Indian
wars occurring in that region. .Joseph,
has w.ith hira only a portion of the
tr.ibe, perjiar ,ax$fc onc-.third. B.utjit
is one of the most melancholy inci
dents of the Indian wars, to find ap
portion of the faithful tribe so discon
tented as to commence hostiities. The
tribe has been remarkable for their in
telligence, docility j?nd their avowed
wish for education and civilization.
We do not wish at this time to go into
the causes which haTe led to this out
break, so painful to all who have
watched their history, but to signalize
this eflbrt of Joseph to have a civilized
war. No such attempt has ever before
been made, in the history of the red
men, so far as we are advised.

The social religious meetings which
have bijn some two months in vogue
have awakened interest among the mem
bers of all denominations in the city.
Two ineeuiigs are held each week and
all persons who may desire to partici

next galiei ing will be held at the house
of Mrs. D. K. Warren on next Friday
evening, at 1)4 o'clock.
On the ISth of last month the Rev.
Mr. Day passed through our city on the
way to Portland, and interior, from Dej
troit. Michigan. We notice tnat yester
diy the Rev. Mr. Knight passed through
on the way to Detroitrom, Salem. Both
gentlemen are ministers Oi. the Congre
gational church. It appears to be a
case of day and night changing pastors
to give more the benefit of different ligh .
on similar subjects.
Atiiocious A bulletin board on one
of our main streets announces that
'Helen's Cables'' are for sale. Whether
they are to be disposed of all together to
tlie highest bidder, or separately, as
someo.ie may parti uilarly fancy only
one, is not stated. If our offspring are
to be put up for sale its about time we
should follow the example of some
larger cities and establish a society for
prevention of cruelty to children.
Aele Defense. The Lafayette
Courier says that "lion. K.Cronin,
one of the abie counsel in the case of the
State vs. U. IL Little.leld, made one of
ihe most e.TceJve and eloquent pleas be
fore the jury tliac it has been our lot to

Lewis napping. Mr. Lewis made one
mistake; is instead of unlocking the
f.-ont door, he had passed around the
end of the house to the gangway, he
would have had them immediately un
der the muzzle of his revolver, and could
have captured them, or hurt them badly.
The interjection, oh ! uttered by one of
them at the hrs: discharge of the watch
man's pistol might indicate either a
wound or a fright, and perhaps both.
They were remarkably cautious in their
movements. It would appear, that after
forcing their way into the house by wa
ter from, they struct a match that they
might see how matters were arranged.
This flash of light Lewis discovered and
put his veto on the proceedings, and they
were extremely lucky to g .t off as well
as they did. p.

If you nie a correspondent or have an
advertisement in the paper, you are entitled
to a complimentary copy of the paper
