A PnoFiTAm.K Cow. Mr. Gallou of
ibis city has a full blooded durham cow
that proves that "blood will tell" when i
one goes io purchase stock. Besides
furnishing milk for his own table since
the lr.th day of last May Mr. Gallou has
sold 774 quarts of milk at 10 cents per
quart, amounting to. -?77 40; and has sold

furniture it Is the best, and as for the
'living-room."' nothing will stand the
test better. The grain of the wood is
quite open, and will absorb a great deal
of raw oil without becoming polished.
If a little gum copal is mixed with the
oil, in a short time the wood will become
as highly policed as a coach hody.
Light House Mattkks. The resig
nation of Mr. J. W. Munson. tendered
last August, as keeper of the light house
at Cape Hancock has been accepted, and
after a faithful service of over twelve
years. Mr. Munson finds himself "at
home' again in Astoria. Twelve years
must be considered a long period of time
to serve in any capacity, and in looking
over the period in review Mr. Munson
finds many changes. The principal one
may be stated in reference to the means
of saving lives at the Cape. When years
ago Mr. Munson took hold of the old life
boat and fitted it up at his own expense
he thought perhaps it might be the
means of accomplishing some good, and
it has, for he has been able to save 23
lives in the time, and now the govern
ment has provided permanent means
for saving lives at various places on the
coast, including Cape nancock. Mr.
Afunson's successor at the Cape is Mr.
Jmes Anderson, principal keeper from
Tokes roint Light, and Mr. Fred JXo

Up the Klaskani.
Urgent business rendered it neces
sary for us to take a trip up this sub
urban stream. Capt. Beard with his
sloop Geo. Flavel presented the most
expeditious method of reaching our
destination, Klaskani farm, and so we
embarked with him forthwith. We
were favored with a fine ash breeze to
commence with which lasted to Smith's
point where old Boreas exerted him
self a little for our benefit and carried
us rapidly along. A passenger who
professed to know something about
steering succeeded in limning us
aground opposite Dad's old mill,
where we were detained half an hour
till the flood tide and increasing wind
worked us off. The morning was
clear and bright, Saddle mountain
showing up majestically; Numberg's
farm presented a thrifty appearance as
we rapidly passed. Bartoldes' neat
cottage, McCreary's fruit orchard,
Tracy and Hassel's daily farm and or
chard all presented an attractive ap
pearance, and were worthy the com
mendary observations made by our
party. Shortly after passing the
Granger s hall the wind dice away and
the sweeps were again brought into re
quisition. The stream grew narrower
and the water darker and resembled a
portion of the "Dismal swamp" of
North Carolina, so one said who had
been there. Carnahan's tree still
drifts about in this vicinity. Tradi
tion tells us how one man and his wife
remained on this tree all night floating
in the stream to protect themselves
from the wolves. Fort Metz was noted,
its history related and passed.
At 3 p. in. we arrived at Gray's land
ing rather fatigued and sunburnt, but
hungry enough. An ox team gave us
a lift to Ivlaskani farm, (owned by Mr.
Jacob Kamin), which is under the
management of Mr. "W. H. Gray.
Looking down from the crest of the
highland on this farm, the cultivated
land lies in a valley, one could not re
frain from expressions of admiration
at the scene presented. Everything
looked so neat and thrift, attractive
f;irm house, with commodious out
houses, barns, haystacks, etc. The
The stream running close to the barn
affording ample facilities for watering
stock, etc. We were soon at the house
where the cordial welcome given made
us feel perfectly at home, in a house
that we noticed was a model of neat
ness and good taste. Business made
our stay short, for the time being, we
sauntered along the banks of the
stream passed Corno's place into Fair
field's meadow where we were gratified
with a sight most unexpected, though
perhaps not rare in these parts. Tear
ing across the meadow came a horse
nans bridle, sans saddle with one of
Astoria's fairest daughters perched
gracefully upon his back. Bright eyes,
rosy cheeks, and flowing hair testified
how thoroughly this recreation was en
joyed, and we paused to witness this
display of modem e puestrianism. But
for a moment for piercing shrieks from
the niedow below called us there,
where we found another fair one with
blanched cheeks and uplifted hands
remonstrating with some cows that
were unpleasantly near, that had been
fascinated by her pull back, and were
endeavoring by occular proof to de
termine what this new tiling was. Of
course we dispersed this crowd of
our curious bovines, and escorted the
distressed lady to a place of safety,
where we congratulated her from her
narrow escape from too much admira
tion. Fairfield's farm was inspected and
pronounced a success, business attend
ed to and we returned to luxuriate in
the hospitality of Mr. Gray. A lady
visiting and the accomplished daugh
ter of our host treated us to some nice
music. 2s ext morning early we wan
dered around the farm much pleased
with the systematic manner in which
all work was carried on, and the im
provements made since it has been un
der the control of Mr. Gray. This
farm comprises some 4S0 acres, about

Tiie Seattle Tragedy.
In reading over the fearful tragedy,
enicted at Seattle in February last,
and the execution of the unfortunate
man, John Thompson, recently, for
the killing of Baker, . 1 could wish,
from my heart, that some artist would
draw a true picture of the whole scene, ,
from the first intoxicating glasa taken
at the dram shop, on that sacred day
of rest up to the fatal moment when
the noose tightened around the neck
of the p001 unfortunate Thompson,
and his soul was launched into the
eternal world; and this picture fasten
ed to the four walls of every saloon
and dram shop in the land. If the
consequences of the intoxicating dram
ended with this life, the dram seller
might hold up his head, and brave the
evil, with a serene countenance; but,
alas! there is a day of retribution,
when no unrepentant one, can go un
punished; a retribution not to be
meted out by fallable man, but by the
Omniscient One, who never errs in
judgement. At the commencement
of tlu3 scene on that Sabbath day,
there were three responsible actors;
the dram-seller, the fighting-bully, and
the unfortunate criminal who suffered
on the gallows. In violation of the
law of God, and perhaps of the land,
the dram-seller was dealing out the
maddening beverage to the other two
individuals, until a fight ensues, and
Thompson is beaten and goes out, and
lu-epares himself -with, a deadly weapon
for self-defense, he is followed up by
the bully, the light is renewed, when
the unfortunate man, Baker, (for the
sake of peace) interferes, and receives
the fatal stab. His life is taken, and
Thompson pays the penalty with his
As his body is suspended upon the
gallows, let us bring under review the
consequences resulting from this damn
ing business, dram-selling. Here is
the victim of the dram-seller and of
j the law, hanging by the neck, a spec
tacle and a warning to hi3 fellow-man;
yet, as revolting as this spectacle is.
this poor mortal's condition is far pre
ferable to either of the other two prii -cipals
in the tragedy. There appears
to be good evidence, that he died, as
the thief upon the cross, truly peni
tent, and receiving pardon from his
God, although it was refused by man:
the gates of Paradise were opened to
him and he is now freed from sin and
eternal death. How stands the matter
with the other two, who perhaps look
ed on this scene to its close, with utter
indifference? Can they shut their eyes
to the fact that unt;l brought to re
pentance, punishment surel' awaits
them, if not in this world in the world
to come? Cjuld the dram-seller be
sensible of the crimes which will be
charged upon him, resulting from his
business, which is destructive, both to
soul and body of man, he would shrink
from it with horror and seek forgive
ness from hi3 God. I
