Judge Davidson has. rduirned
from Westportj where he has been
engaged on the construction of a new

of it, that it was some surprise to us.
It is 2G by 3G feet in size, two stories
high, -with a wing 22 by 2i feet, and
wood shed and wash house 13 by 30.
The main building is hard finished,
grained and varnished throughout,
-'xndnpresents a veryihandsome appearance.
T ifce Tax Payers of the City f
On the 28th inst. papers were filed
in the Circuit court in this coimty, in
the case of the state of Oregcffi'cc rcl,
W. W. Parker, Mayor, vs. -John H.
D. Gray, for intruding into and
usurping the office c mayor of the
city of Astoria. This action has grown
out of the late proceedings of the
common council against the mayor.
- As tlie present Status of the gov
ernmei of the city is unsettled in the
minds of the people, and attorneys
differ -as to he legality of all proceed
ings of the council under the present
condition of affairs, a decision at this
term of court on the right of the coun
cil to depose and remove the mayor is
demanded by many citizens and tax
payers of Astoria.
If the council or Capt. J. H. D. 'Gray
refuse to go into court at this term
and have this question determined at
once, all good citizens, and -particularly
the tax payers of this city, should in
quire into the reason of their refusing,
while at the same time they are hold
ing special meetings and involving the
reputation of the city, and endanger
ing its material interests. A very
proper question to ask is: Who is to
pay all the expenses if these matters
Mow to Hemit Money Orders.
Most of our readers will doubtlessj
smile at the above caption, as rf it
were hardly possible among our nu
merous readers to find one who would
need to be told what to do -with a
money order. A case lately came
under our own observation, however,
in which a party had kept a money
order in his pocket for several months,
under the impression that it was a
receipt from the postmaster for his
money, and that the postmaster would
see that the money was forwarded.
Such an incident on 'being nrepeatedj
led to comparison with the experience
of others, and 'we heard of a case
where a man was found holding sev
eral money orders in the same way for
remittances, which die supposed he
had properly made, and for which he
was being, as he supposed, most un
warrantably dunned. As most of our
readers already know, the money
order purchased is made out and given
to the purchaser, whose duty it is to
remit it himself. We .presume the
idea of its being a receipt tfor him to
hold, origiuated through .confounding
money orders with registered letters.
Hobort !l3urdette, snow bound in
Utica, telegraphed as follows to Her
kimer, where he was to have lectured:
The Burlington man came outof the west
In a swallow-tail coat and cut-away vest,
But he said, 'I conjecture
There 's .snow chance for a lecture ;"
So his overworked chin had a rest.
The "statesman" from Yamhill,
(Wm. Galloway), writes to inform Mr.
James Walton, of Salem, that he "will
gladly correct" any reflections made
upon him in the smelling committee
report. Gov. Thayer intimates, in his
reply to Capt. Apperson of Oregon
city, that the investigation was .con
ducted on the grand jury system.
The bottom will entirely fall out of
the whole contemptible proceedings
! long before the nrime mover in it rpfq
to the United States senate.
No -matter what may come, some
one is continually growling about hard
times, but, 'from what can be gleaned
from the journals of the state, they
are even fair at this writing. There
'has been a quickening of trade .for
a month m nearly all branches of bus
iness, and -consequently, s. need for
more hands. Railroad repair and
construction Is necessitating the em
ployment oT extra men, and the far
mers will -soon be in need of much
help. Comparatively speaking, the
-tinus -never have been hard in Oregon.

Wyoming, III., Jan. 15. Here I
am in the great hog and corn country,
and such grunting and squeeling, it is
fearful. The pigs squeel with the cold
winter weather, mercury standing
most of the time -at 12 Mow zero,
and part of the time at 26 below since
my arrival, with about eighteen inches
of snow, .and to-day it is snowing aFli
most fearful rate. The snow com
menced 1a fall about midnight last
night, and at this time, 12 o'clock if.,
some the railroads are reported
People are complaining at the prices
of .produce; corn 23 cents per bushel,
hogs at $2 50 per hundred pounds,
and taxes fully one dollar per acre.
Surely the prospects are not flattering.
Farming lands which were reafly sale
five years ago at $G0 per acre wllnot
bring $40 now, and will have to go still
lower. The appearance is that the
railroad companies are the only parties
that are making money. I am -sure
that the people of the Mississippi -valley
have to perform at least one third
more labor to obtain a livelihood than
the peqple of the Pacific coast. I
would say, by way of advice to those
who are "dissatisfied with their homes
in Oregon and Washington territery:
"Cling to them," at least do not re
turn to this rigid climate, the Missis-

Messrs. Greggtlfc Co. advertise that
the good ship T. M. Reed would "fal
low the Tabor on the ToeriJh at Phila
delphia for Astoria. The "OFLeed has
been Inst, and the New York Herald
furnishes us with the following partic
ulars: The American ship Thomas M.
Reed, Capt. Small, from 'San Fran
cisco for Liverpool, went ashore in the
breakers m Freshwater bay, mear Lin
nyhead, January 12th. The sea was
running very high at the time,
and although the rocket apparatus was
soon on the spot, great difficulty was
experienced in getting a line on board.
The crew were in a very dangerous
position, but by means of the line
twenty of the men were saved. Three
men had unfortunately been washed
overboard and drowned. Lloyds'
ragent proceeded to the scene of the
wreck, and is saving all the cargo that
comes ashore. This consists mainly
of boxes of canned meat and fish.
The sands for more than a mile are
strewn with parts of the cargo and
broken spars. The amount of salvage
will be large. The ship has already
become a total wreck. A yauht in
the service of Trinity house has been
sent for. and was 'hourly expected at
the time our dispatch left Milford.
The Thomas M. Reed left San Fran
cisco. September 25th, and made the
woyago m safety to within about one
'hundred miles of her port. She was
built at Bath, Maine, in 1S77, where
she was owned. She registered 1507

often the very first to show "ingratitude.
