City Matteiis. City Attorney Bell
has been absent for several days to Oys
terville on business. As there were sun
dry ordinances pending in relation to
city finances that needed the attention
of the attorney, the council adjourned
Monday evening, to meet again last
Mutiny. The crew of the Dinapore
mutinied on the morning of the 1.1th
-when the tug went alongside in the har
bor to take the vessel to sea, and would
not hoist the anchor. This detained the
ship until yesterday. It is but the natu
ral growth of that system which permits
a cargo to be taken on board at one port
t Astoria), while the erew is enlisted at
another port (Portland).
IxcoitiiECT. The name of Capt. Sib

this city, brother of the late commander
of the Woodhall, that Capt. Sibson died

Buy a Home. Although taxes are
high and rents are low, (says the St.
Louis Globe, and the words apply here
as well), a man who buys real estate
.and pays for it with his own money is
better off than he who gets five per cent
interest on a dejosit in a bank. The
withdrawal of deposits from the banks
ought to lead to a pretty brisk cash busi
ness in little houses and cheap lots, and
really it would be hard to find a better
-disposition to make of one's money.

rig at an early hour two very large
bear came to camp where the
workmen are employed upon the Tongue
Point depot and all hands started after
fie game, chasing them with stones back
into the bruslL Mr. Wheeler went for
his rifle, but before he returned to the

a secure place, beyond capture. That is
a splendid locality for small gajie like

it is said by some that even duck' tuul

The Soft Shadowy Days.
Autumn is wandering on down the
descending path, and soon wjll the sea
son's stately robes rustle the fallen
leaves and flutter in the sullen blasts of
November. Imbued as they must be
with a soul-deep appreciation of the
etheral beauty and tranquility of "the
soft shadowy days," our readers will
thank us for grouping these delicate pen
On the scarlet mountains yonder,
Summer lies down to die;
She gathers her robes of splendor
Around her royally.
Her tender, purpling mosses
Pillow her royal head:
Her myriad, gentle grasses
Are weeping about her bed.
It fails, the precious promise
Of her beauty's golden reign ;
It came, the loss, the longing,
The silence, and the pain.
She was cruel in her splendor,
She mocked us in its reign :
She held her careless carnival
Above our idol slain.
'Tis not the hand that crowns us,
The hand held out to bless;
'Tis the hand that robs and wrongs us,
That we often caress.
Still, O, beguiling Summer.
We o'er thy beauty lean ;
Thou didst rob us, yet we love thee
Discrowned, we hail thee queen.
All passionate fervor faded,
With eyes at last serene.
Turned toward thy conqueror, Autumn,
Thou art dying, O, our queen !
All that thou gavest to us,
In thy morning's gracious glow,
All thou hast taken from ns.
Only our God can know.
Solemn yet beautiful to view,
Montli of my heart, thou dawneth here,
With sad and faded leaves to strew
Pale summer's melancholy bier;
The moaning of thy winds I hear.
As the red sunset dies afar,
And bars of purple clouds appear,
Obscuring every western star.
Thou solemn month ! I hear thy voice;
It tells my soul of other days,
When but to live was to rejoice,
When earth was lovely to my gaze !
Oh, visions bright oh, blessed hours,
Where are their living raptures now '.'
I ask my spirit's wearied powers
I ask my pale and fevered brow.
I look to nature, and behold
My life's dim emblems rustling sound
In hues of crimson and of gold
The years dead honors on the ground ;
And, sighing with the winds, I feel,
W bile their low pinions murmur by
How much their sweeping tones reveal
Of life and human destiny.
When spring's delight sonic .moments
They came in zephyrs irom the west;
They bore the wood-lark's melting tone,
They stirred the blue lake's glassy
Through Summer, fainting in the heat,
They lingered in the forest shade;
But changed, and, strengthened now,
In storm o'er mountain, glen and glade
How like those transports of the breast
When life is fresh and joy is new;
Soft as the halcyon's downy nest,
And transient all as they are true !
They stir the leaves in that bright
Which Hope about her forehead twines
Till Griefs hot sighs around it breathe,
Then Pleasure's lip its smile resigns.
Alas ! for Time and Death and Care,
What gloom about our way they fling !
Like clouds in autumn's gusty air.
The burial pageant of the spring.
The dream that each successive year
Seemed bathed in hues of brighter
At last like withered leaves appear,
And sleep in darkness side by side.
Mild as the glances of angel eyes,
Soft as the kisses of first born love,
Down through the haze of the Autumn
Comes the glad sunshine from the
Beautiful pictures it sketchcth now,
Touched with the glowing hues of old,
Painting the valley and mountain's brow
With purple and opal and red ami gold;
A whisper of beauty the spirit fills,
Tales of a laud that fadeth never,
Sunshine that gildeth the beautiful hills,
Oyer the bank of the shadowy river.
Beautiful rest for the weary soul.
Earth hath no beauty akin to this !
Anthems of gladness forever roll
Over those halcyon plains of bliss.
Down the steeps of life's western hill,
Beautiful sunshine of hope and light
Every shadow and hope dispel,
Lift my spirit from realms of night.
S ft as the beams of the Autumn sun,
Sweet as the death of the summer
Gather thy jewels one by one,
Take my soul to those fadeless bowers.
Just after the death of the flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season,
When nature is all aglow
Aglow with a mystical splendor
That rivals the brightness of spring
Aglow with a beauty more tender
Than aught which fair summer could
Same spirit akin to the rainbow
Then borrows its magical dies,
And mantles the far-spreading land
scape In hues that bewilder the eyes.
The sun, from its cloud-pillowed chain
Smiles soft on a vision so gay,
And dreams that his favorite children.
The flowers, have not yet passed away
There's a luminous mist on the moun
tains, A light azure haze in the. air,
As if angels, whilst heavenward soaring.
llftd left their bright robes floating
The breeze is so soft, so caressing,
It seems a mule token of love,
And floats to the heart like a blessing
From some happy spirit above.
These days, so serene and so charming,
Awaken a dreamy delight
A tremulous, tearful enjoyment,
Like soft strains of music at night ;
We. know they are fading and fleeting,
That quickly, too quickly they'll end.
And we watcluhenrwith yearning affec
tion, As at parting we watch a dear friend.
O ! beautiful Indian Summer !
Thou favorite child of the year
Thou darling, whom nature enriches
With gifts and adornments so dear !
How fain would we woo thee to linger
On mountain and meadow awhile.
For our hearts, like the sweet haunts of
Rejoice and grow young in thy smile
Not alone to the sad fields of autumn
Dost thou a lost brightness restore,
But thou bringest a world-weary spirit
Sweet dreams of its childhood once
Thy loveliness thrills us with memories
Of all that was brightest and best;
Thy peace and serenity offer
A fortaste of heavenly rest
This is a season enjoyed, we believe,
by all. The sportsman looks forward to
splendid shooting, rambling rubolists to
delightful nooks in wood and dell, and
the school boy is sure to look forward
with pleasure to the days,
When the sound of dropping nuts is
Though all the trees are still,
And twinkle in the smoky light
The waters of the rill.
