nnd associate Eells remained till the

Some of the Products ?of the Cargo
of the Pato.
PROSPECTS OF FISHING NEAR
Jin Experiment Yorth a Trial at Least,
Yesterday Capt. J. Slocum of the
schooner Pato showed us some of the
finest, freshest, nicest cod-fish that we
have -ever seea an Oregon. This was
a portion of die cargo of the Pato
which Capt. S. has left for -sale at
Warren & McGwire's m Astoria. The
Pato is the first vessel to enter Oregon
waters with cod-fish, but the sample
shown to us proves that it will not be
the last. He is very confident that he
will succeed next season with a larger
vessel. His present cargo, mention of
which was made at the time of arrival,
comes from the Okotsk sea, and con
sisted of 53,000 fish, caught in six
weeks time. It may .seem to some
like sending coals to Newcastle, to
bring cod-fish from such distant banks,
away up in the north, when it is well
known that tA Indians catch a fine
article withinThirty miles of Astoria,
oil Netarts, and as far south as Ya
quina, butof one thing we are sure,
these are s. better fish than any that
come from tithe east. We wish Capt.
Slocum would try the banks nearer
home with the Pato, before embark
ing upon the long voyage to the north.
We believe the experiment is worth a

Johnson, and her tenders on the Col
umbia river bar, the C. J. Prenham,
Capt. A. D. Wass, and Columbia,
Capt. Geo. Flavel, took nine Tessels to
sea from Astoria. The Brenham took
four,. the Blengfell, Broughton, In
glewood, and Springfield. The Col
umbia took three, llivcr Nith, Gari
baldi, and Hazard; and the Astoria
took two, Pizarro, and Earl Gran
ville. All the vessels that have clear
ed and are ready for ssa have now de
parted, except tho3e reported else
where, and not a single accident has
occurred. We may remark in this
connection that an accident has not
occurred to a vessel on this bar, where
a pilot was in charge, since the Asto
ria took her position in her present
The danger of adulterating kerosene
oil with naptha or benzine is recogni
zed abstractly bT most dealers in the
article; but few know how little adul
teration may make the kerosene unsafe.
A report to the New Orleans board of
health staies that when kerosene that
would not flash below 113 deg. Fah.
had one per cent, of benzine added to
it, it flashed at 103 deg; with two per
cent, at 82 deg; with five per cent at
63 deg; with ton per cent., at 59 deg.
This means that a mixture of the
lighter product of distillation, such as
might not -seem of much significance
to the manufacturer or dealer, will
produce an oil that gives off an inflain
able vapor in the ordinary heat of
apartments an oil more dangerous to
the consumer than a keg of ginxpow
