Besides the usual business of the
annual meeting, degrees were confer
red at the meetingvpon several candi
dates aggregating fourteen degrees in
all. which prolonged the session until
the snuvll Hnrs of morning. Mr. I.
W. Cas who has filled various offices
in the lodge for seven consecutive
years, begged for an Odd Fellow's
rest for the ensuing term, which was
reluctantly granted to him. He has
been one of the main stays of the fra- i
ternity here, and there is not a mem
ber from the oldest to the yoimgesc,
but looks to him for counsel. The
lodnj starts out under favorable aus
pices in the present year, and we hope
to live long to record its future success.
Another Disaster Irobally.
The British snip Allegiance came
in yesterday in a gale of wind, -bar
breaking badly and anchored in a pre
carious place," without a iilot. Three
bar tugs and the United States reve
nue cutter Thomas Corwin, which was
tying in linkers bay, went to her as
sistance. Just how such an accident
could occur it is impossible for us to
divine. If the master had ever been
here before he certainlyehould know
f that he was getting into a bad place,
and 'if he had never been here before
should not have attempted to come in
without a pilot. We are without any

We are indebted to the secretary of
the Astoria Chamber of Commerce, for
various items, correcting our list of
vessels on the way, etc
The Bothwell Castle has arrived at
Victoria, and probably ere this has
departed to Australia on the outward
voyage, -and will no t come h ere. That
name;s dropped from our list.
As "nothing definite can be ascer-
'tained concerning the Carranjah, that
name is also dropped out.
The Ethel has arrived, and is proba
bly loading at Victoria, though the
press of that city are about as indiffer
ent to ship news as the press of Port
land. The delay of the Johannes is proba
bly explained 03 saying that she is
coming via Java. And the Olive Branch
comes ria Penang and Singapore.
The "Santiago sailed for Victoria,
thence to Santa Crnz -with coal, and
has -cmce gone to San Francisco.
The Herman, en route from Callao,
is a Costa Rican ship. She comes to
load with lumber.
There may be other vessels on the
way to this port which do not appear
in the list. We have famished such in
formation in this particular as we have
been able to obtain.
