The undesigned Sexton of the Astoria Cem
etery, in view of the fact that the cemetery
grounds are now permanently located, wishes
all persons owning lots in the grounds to re
Ijort the number and block to him ; also, all
persons who have buried friends in the
grounds at any time, are requested to ad
dress him through the Post-office, or call upon
lain at his office, aud furnish, him with a list
embracing the name of deceased, age, when
buried, the lot or block upon which the
burial was made, and such other information
as will enable him to bring order out of chaos.

Astoria. Oregon, Sept. 20, 1877.
NOTICE TO SHIP MASTERS.
The undersicnt-d respectfully desires toinform
Masters of vessel, entering the port of Asaorin
that there actually exist buch as real livostoe
dors right here at Astoria, without their being
obliged to trael-a hundred miles up the river to
find one. and in the end be compelled to take the
roan particularly pointed out to them by the Port
land ring whether agreeable to the Captain or not,
take hira he mubt. I remarked they were com
pelled to take the man pointed out to them and I
ropeat it: for, the shipmasters once in the bancto
rcum of the Portland ring has no choice but pa-
tiently to submit to the one man concern.
It is a well known fact that stevedore uillB con
stitute one of tho principal items of ships bills in
all commercial perts: but under tho present sys
tematic arrangements of the Portland ring mana
gers, the Captains opinion on that subject, there,
tw never called into Question or consulted, every
precaution being studiously taken, and every
avenue to approach the Captain on that subject
by outsiders being zealously guarded by tho toters
nad wire-jmllersof the img leaves no alternatives,
liut, for thj Captain submissively to accept the
conditions held out by them.
But I will here take the liberty to state, for the
special benefit of shin Masters, and I am able to
prove my assertion, that I can sae to any ship
"Captain or owner the round sum of three hun
dred and four dollars in U. S. gold coin, on every
l.UlW tons of wheat or flour that may go into their
nhips hero at Astoria, and if ship Masters chose to
iccept my proposition. I'll guarentw the best sat
isfaction at hgures proportionally nominal com
pared to Portland rates. .
Under the present syhtem of employing steve
dores at Portland the Master of a ship is com
pletely at the mercy of the consignee agent or
-charter-party, who mnkoa it their business, to
luinf.Aiit.thiiiriiuii .lack, and the Cantain is of
-necessity compelled to accept tho conditions Held.
out by tliem, tne utmost care oeing wnen ana.
tender solicitude exhibited towards the Captain.
,n nrrfnr to iruard and nrotect him from all dan
ger of approach or contact with outside parties,.
TOT tear OI opposition, MB irum uucjnumun,, uu id
aever for moment lost sight of by the toters and
button-holers of the ring, trom the moment he
-t-tjtsfoot on terra iirma. until he's got his clear
ance in his pocket and on his way out.
But three hundred and tour dollars on every
I.OM tons can be deducted from any ships ex--nenses
in the port of Autoria by my system of
Stevedoring, which otherwise goes into the capa
o:ous pockets of the so-called Portland boss-ng-er
and stevedore. But I'll here trespass on your
patience and venture to remark, and III back my
opinion at any time or place, that neither of tho
-parties, demonotrating themselves riggers, and
palm themselves olt as sucti. possess thb ability to
eren rig a plunger or cut a toot rope for a royal
vard, fur less rig a ship. 1 make this assertion be
cjiuselaui positive ot what tsay or speak, hav
ing been both in ports of the Atlantic states, on
tho Pacific coast and for a matter ot ten years on
tae Columbia river engaged in sN-vedor ng my
self, and consequently am pretty well posted as to
the abilities ot most men in that particular
branch ot business arouud here, having had .am
ple opportunities to test them all; the parties rc
icrred to may bo able to cross top-gallant yarda
with pipe-ateins, but never did nor never wdl
know now to cut a set of rigging for. or rig a ship.
As regards the 1 jading ot ships. I can here sat
ly state, and. uefy any one to contradict it, that
alter deducting the labor .bill Iroin the sum total
against every i.M twis at Portland rates and
.-hargBJ: three hundred-acd four dollars nasa in
to the hand of the bosviigger and st-vedore us a
consideration for the use ot ms sehuU.Xea.dollars
worth ot lumber, which may be brought into re
quisition for fifty ships without deteriorating a
particle of their original value. Three .hundred
ud tour dollars tor every twenty hours werj: or
ue ot their scnuts to slide so.ae sacks, on. is
pretty good ;neret on ten dollars ot capital m-v.-stcd.
