The Astoria Railroad,
The following brief paragraph from
the Oregonianof the 16th contains more
of justness toward Astoria, and this
"vicinity, than we have seen in the edi
torial columns of that paper during
the last ten years. Lot us hope tRat
this may be taken as an evidence of a
kindlier feeling toward us in that
The Oregonian says: The bill
introduced by Mr. Mitchell in rela
tion to the Oregon Central or westsido
railroad will be generally commended.
It ought to pass, though probably it
will be difficult to pass it. From
Forest Grove to Astoria this road
would traverse a country whose value
is far beyond the conception of most of
our people. It has great resources in
timber, coal and agricultural lands,
and at no distant day will have a pop
ulation exceeding the whole present
population of Oregon. This railroad
through it, would make it, at once.
Value of the timber on the lands grant
ed would more than suffice for the
construction of the road.
Chamber of Commerce.
The Astoria Chamber of Commerce
was thoroughly re-organized yesterday
on a better basis than formerly. In
stead of shares of stock to constitute
membership the new constitution and
by-laws provide for an initiation fee
of $5 00 and dues of $1 00 per month
for current expenses. There were
present yesterday twenty-five persons
who became active members. We art
pleased to know that there is no longer
a reasonable doubt of full and com
plete success. The Chamber as or
ganized in 1S73 has been very useful
to Astoria, but as at present organized
it will be very much more efficient
Dr. Aug. C. Kinney was chosen tem
porary chairman, and Prof. Ed. Cur
Important to Litigants.
The Mountaineer informs us that
Judge Mc Arthur has 'decided that all
legal advertisements that are required
to be published four or six consecu
tive weeks, require to be published
five or seven consecutive times in order
to come within the intention and mean
ing of the law. Heretofore the law
has tjeen construed to mean four and
six times. The cases against the Meth
odist Mission, excepting the one
brought by Dalles city will not there
fore be heard at this term of court,
ofing to the fact that the publication
of the "Summons" for the defendants
had not been ordered published a suf
ficient number of weeks.
In another column we publish a
circular issued by Mr. E. C. Holden,
on the subject of our free public
reading room. This circular will be
sent to the publishers of ti large num
ber of newspapers and periodicals in
the east and on the Pacific coast, with
a request that the Astoria free reading
room may be placed on their exchange
list. This is a good move. Mr. Hol
den evidently understands how to
manage this business. We have never
refused similar applications that have
come to us for any such laudable pur
pose, and the result of sending this ex
cellent circular will be, we have no
doubt, that our reading room will be
bountifully supplied at a very moderate
expense with an excellent variety of
our leading newspapers and maga
zines. Mr. H. informs us that he has
a brother, a merchant in London, and
that through him he intends to procure
a supply of English shipping and other
papers. Success to the Astoria read
ing room say we.

The above advertisement is copied
from the Oregonian. -It serves to il
lustrate a class of dmposfcers quite too
numerous. "redo not pretend toayl
that the individual who called upon us
a few days -ago, representing that he
wasanagentof the Cincinnati Gazette,
ds a fraud and imposter equal to Hen
derson, but it is a safe rule to try such
individuals by just to ask to see their
' Credentials." If the documents "hap
pen 3 be in another coat pocket," or
"in a satchel on board the boat," it is
safe to say that the "bearer is a fraud."
We do not ask the Clironicle to pay

By the President of the U. S., 1
Washington City, Oct 23, 1877.
The completed circle of summer and winter
seed time and harvest has brought us to the
accustomed season at which religious people
celebrate with praise and thanksgiving the
enduring mercy of Almighty God. Tills de
vout and public confession of the constant
attendance of man upon the Divine Father
for all good gifts of life and health, of peace
and happiness, so early in our history made a
habit or by our people, finds in the survey of
the past year new grounds for its joyful and
grateful manifestations in all the blessings
which descend upon benignant seasons. This
has been a memorable year over the wide
territory of our country. "With all its diver
sity of soil and climate and products, the
earth has yielded a bountiful return to the la
bor of the husbandman. The health of the
people has been blighted by no prevalent or
widespread diseases. No great disasters of
shipwreck upon our coasts or to our com
merceon the seas have brought loss" and hard
ship to merchants or mariners and the un
clouded happiness of community with sym
pathetic sorrow. In all that concerns our
strength and peace and greatness as i na
tion, in all that touches the permanence and
security of our government and the benifv
cent institutions on which it rests ; in all that
affects the character and dispositions of our
people and tests our capacity to enjoy and
uphold the equal and free condition of societv
is now permanent and universal throughout
the land. The experience of the last year is
conspicuously marked by the protecting prov
idence of God, and is full of promise and
hope for coming generations. L nder a sense
of these infinite obligations to the Great
Ruler of times and seasons and events, let us
humbly ascribe it to our own faults and frail
ties, if auy degree of that perfect concord
and happiness, peace and justice which such
great mercies should diffuse through the
hearts and lives of our people do not alto
gether and always and everywhere prevail.
Let us with one spirit and one voice lift up
praise and thanksgiving to God for his mani
fold goodness to our land, and his manifest
care for the nation.
Now, therefore, I, Rutherford B. Hayes,
President of the United States, do anooint
Thursday, the 29th day of November next, as
a day of national thanksgiving and prayer,
and i earnestly recommend that withdrawing
themselves from secular cares and labors, the
people of the United States do meet together
on that day in their respective places ol wor
ship, there to give thanks and praise to Al
mighty God for His mercies, and to devoutly
beseech their continuance,
In witness whereof, etc
