Communication on the PIsliLu LaiT- Editok Astektax: At a time wien the salmon fisheries and salmon laws are so much talked of, and when so many persons fioin diffei ent walks of life make the subject inter esting by giving the views on the sub ject, it is no more than fair niay that we ui Astoria should say soaieuiing on the subject. The only parties intere'ted :i this matter are IhenienibeisoC the bo.nd of trade of Portland. W el 1, 1 would sa v this much that the fishermen of ihe Col umbia r'verougtitlo vote a leather niu.al to their sect clary. For without the en ergy of that personage, whoever he may ue. tne lisiiermen ot inisuver wop id he without a law, (as they should be; and salmon would leave the waUMs of the great Columbia. The regulations don't specify that a salmon must have a per mit to enter the rivei, but it does specify tl at the fishermen must have a permit to go after that salmon. And fishermen, it savs more than that it says that thcie is a bin'th's point, in CIatop county, Ore gon, and that theie is a 'Scarborough point in Pacific county. Washington terriloiy. Now, in older that the board of trade, or some body else up the Wal lamet slough, may know wnce Smith's point is located, its the west end of the. peninsula formed by ihe.

From this point to Cane Disappoint ment where the waters er: the Columbia river embrace with the Pacific ocean is a distance of 19 miles. Now, fisher men, the average wiuth of the Columbia river for that distance would be about 8 miles, or a body of water a mile wide and l;2 miles leng: just ilunK lor a mo ment the magnitude of this nuul swin dle inaugeraled by the board of trade, have yoii ever considered this mauer.

Some interesting correspondence has recently been published in the Lon don Lancet, between. Dr. Richardson of the "regular school" of medicine, and Dr. "Wyld, vice president of the British Homeopathic society. It ap pears from the correspondence that there are a "large number" of homeo paths in Great Britain who desire to drop their distinctive name and be in corporated into the "regular school." The following points are made in Dr. Wyld's letter: "We admit: First That- the views expressed "by Hahneman are often extravagant and incorreefc. Second That Hippocrates was right when he said, "some diseases are best treated by similar, and some by con traries," and therefore it is unwise and incorrect to assume the title of homeopathist. Third That although many believe that the action of the infinitesinii in nature can be denounced, its use in medicine is practically, (by a large number in this country), all but aban doned. There are many accomplished phy sicians of this school in the United States. But we have never heard that they were drifting towards the "old school." The changes in the practics of medicine during the last fifty years have been wonderful. And no where have they been more radical than in the regular school. If the practice of fifty years ago were sharply contrasted with the present, we should perceive how great these changes have been. It is not likely that all educated medi cal practitioners will acknowledge the standard of a single school. But there ought to be some common ground of recognition, and some fundamental principles which all could acknowledge. Since the practice of medicine can hardly be said, in its present condition, to be on any exact scientific basis, and new discoveries are being constantly made, all earnest and enlightened men devoted to the healing art might, with out any sacrifice of principle, cultivate a catholic and fraternal spirit which would go a long way toward liberaliz ing the profession. The new relations which' public men will sustain to each other after the coming memorable winter says the "Washington, city "Reporterr is one of the current speculations here. There has ever been an undercurrent of so cial and individual affinity bringing -men of different parties into special associations outeide of politics, and- many causes of repulsion between representatives of the same -political ideas. It often needs only some slight t entering wedge-to break up old political combinations and to rearrange their elements in new ones. There are many such causes at work thisvwinter.t and the politicians are on, the lookout for new bedfellows.
