We are informed that upon the
arrival of the steamship Idaho in
Portland, to-day, purser H. Sonnen

the satisfaction of the public in the

jsa P. B. -
jL Scandalous Libel.
In the course of remarks upon the
ice blockade, the movements of tho
steamship Oregon, etc., the Standard
has this grosly libelous paragraph up
Should the steamer be compelled to
remain at Astoria she must furnish
board for the passengers; as their
tickets call for their delivery at Port
land and will be very expensive. And
it is not only the expense, is we are
informed upon reliable authority that
the stock of Hour and meat at Astoria
is very limited ami cannot hold out
long. The expected decline in the
beef market w;is the cause of the
limited supply, and the stock of flour,
at no time laige, is now smaller than
usual. From indications, the end is
not yet of the blockade and we may
expect to hear of the people of Astoria,
the passengers on the steamer, and
six or eight ships, going on short
rations, as the ships stores which are
mostly purchased in this city; had not
We are quite certain that the Stand
ard would not maliciously publish
such statement as this, nevertheless,
when taken in connection with the
facts, it is not only an injury to the
port of Astoria, which is as abundant
ly supplied as Portland, at all times,
if not more se: but is a direct insult
to a very large class of readers and
friends of the Standard here. The
Astoria incrclnnts and business men
are prepared at anytime to supply the
civtirc wants of any one or all of the
Oregon Steamship company's steam
ship at any time, for the round trip
to San Francisco or Portland, also airy
number of vessels, or ships, but
they will not submit to any deductions
on account of "commissions" to any
person in any li j of vessois whatever,
believing it to be the curse of trade in
any city where tho system is tolerated.
In this connection we have been
permitted to quote from a private let
ter from one of the leading meat
dealers in Portland the following ex
tract: "Tho butchers here are hav
ing rough time getting cattle. All the
cattle up the valley and around the
bottoms are poor, and good cattle will
bring three cents gros3, now. I think
-the river will soon open and relieve
us. T ihhiV we can get good cattle
oast of t!.- mouritains yet. I shall go
tp Tho Jalies on the first boat" The
letter in mi which the above is ah
extract was written at Portland on the
Stli. Then, is no scarcity of first
class beef cattle in this vicinity the
best on the Pacific coast.
IV. X. Castle's Affairs.
Referring to the defalcation or W.
N. Castle, who suicided at the jail
door in Astoria, a San Francisco paper
says: 'Castle has been a resident of
San Jose for the past ten years, and
has hitherto borne a good reputation,
being industrious and enterprising.
He has been twice elected to the
office cf city- clerk and assessor. C;is
tle's bonds as assessor show that he is
delinquent to the payment of 1,903,
! collected by him on personal property
assessment, for which receipts were
given, the stubs of which are in Lotz's
possession. It appears that Castle
was behind hand $000 a year ago, but
as he paid it up before the treasurer
, made his annual settlement, nothing
was said of it. Treasurer Lotz dis
covered the deficiency early in Novem
ber and told Castle that he must wake
up the amount at once, which he
promised from time to time to do, but
The Centcrvitle mills Fire.
Referring to the destruction of Mr.
Trullhtger's mills in Centerville, the
Hillsboro Independent says: There
had been considerable trouble and liti
gation between the owner of the mills
and other parties, who had been dam
aged by overflow caused by the mill
dam. The persons aggrieved had won
the suits in the courts, and the offend
ing dam had been cut down, so that,
leaving out their good name, it is not
j to be believed that they had any thing
to do with the burning. There is
much suspicion, but no. clue to the in
cendiary, -and these suspicions maybe
unfounded and imjusfc. If it was the
f an incendiary, it was very
boldly done almost incredible."

Reported Ieifclx of air. Ball.
From a Portland, Oregon, dispatch
of the oth, published in the S. F. Call
on the 6th, we quote the follewing:
tfA. H. Ball, of the firm of Ball &
Piatt, contractors on the United
States canal and locks at the Cascades
diedsuddenly at that place yesterday.
As the river is closed, the remains can
not be brought down for some time.
Mr. Ball came from New York a few
months ago. He has been a lare
government contractor for some vears.
He leaves a family." "We have not
received the above report in any Port
land paper. We sincerely hope that
it is 'untrue.
"An Oasisiin the Desert.'
The Boe says: "It is a relief to
glance at an honest mans picture,
that of Hon. L. L. Rowland, late
state superintendent of public instruc
tions. This photograph, life-like and
natural, taken by Davidson Bros.,
may be seen in the window of Morse's
palace. According to the report of
the investigating committee, Mr.
Rowland is the only honest member
of the late defunct and dishonest stale j
administration, "an oasis in the
desert" of fraud, it is a source of grati
fication to know that in all this putrid
mass of fraud, embezzlement and cor
ruption, there was one honest man,
and he afSimon-purc, solid republican.
Oil CI elf tin:
We understand that 5r. 'Win.
jMcCormick will leave this city to-day
upon business connected with the
Astoria Shirt and Oil Clothing factory,
corner of Squemoqhe and Hamilton
streets. We hope that his mission
will be rewarded by extensive orders
for oil clothing, as he is now pre
pared to fill all orders that may be
given to the factory. This is the be
ginning of an important enterprise for
Astoria, It is said that the Columbia
river oil clothing trade amounts to
between $10,000 and15,000 annually,
for fishermen alone. If this money
can be saved to the country it will be
a very important item. Mrs. Mc
Comiiek has supplied a portion -of this
for sevoral years past, and her work
jias aiways ruuouimuaucu iusciu yl
will do so this year. '
The British ship -Allegiance is
wanted in Poland by her master,
who went yfp by the river boat on
Monday. The charter will expire to
day unless the vessel reports there by
a certain hour The steamer Wonder
is on the way down after her.
Maj. C. H. Page and Prof. A.
Meachen of this city have been admit
ted by the Supreme court to practice in
the courts of Oregon. Prof. Meachen
has associated himself with Gen.
0. F. Bell, as will be seen
by card elsewhere. Major Page
expects to enter upon the practice of
his profession at an early date.
James Kazerta Mdrcer, sentenced
to the penitentiary for fifteen years,
has been furnished with an easy job.
He has been appointed to the position
of horse collar staffer. During his
idle time he will dive down into
Blackstoue and Greenleaf, and when
his term expires will come out fully
fitted for congress.
We are informed by Capt. B. F.
Stevens, who returned from San Fraii-
cisco yesterday l?3r the steamship Idaho,
the steamer Great Republic has been
drawn off the route for two months,
bo as to allow a complete overhauling
of the boiler and machinery. But as
we understand it, that the agent in
Portland knows nothing- of this move
ment; and the telegraph yeserday
says she will sail -for Portland -from
San Francisco, probably on the ISth.
in company with the Elder.
