Another meeting will be held at -the
Congregational church on JMonday
evening next, for the purpose of per
fecting arrangements for the course of
music to be taught, etc. We antici
pate that Astoria will be greatly bene
fitted by this movement. Prof. Cook
is a pupil of A. M. Johnson and R.
Webber, in harmony and composition.
LThis, with an actual experience or
seventeen years, renders him eminent
ly qualified as a teacher in these par
ticular brauches. Unlike many other
teachers of great musical ability, this
gentleman lias a most agreeable man
ner "of impartuig instruction, adapting
himself to the capacity of his pupils.
His method is clear, concise, forcible
and complete. From the prospectus
of the Portland Conservatory we quote
The popular idea that age interferes
with vocal development is a fallacy.
Adelina Patti. the world's greatest
living Prima Donna, having made her
debut in opera, a finished artist, at the
early age of seventeen, while Theodore
Wachtel, the celebrated German Ten
or, did not begin his studies until the
age of thirty-two.
The question is oftm asked, "Do
you think 1 am too old to study Music?
or, "Is mv child of sufficient age to
begin?" We give a per cent, of the dif
ferent stages of life in which the New
England Conservatory of Music had
pupils during the past years: Fifty per
cent, ranged from seventeen to twenty
two years of age; twenty-five per cent,
in middle life, both married and siugle:
fifteen per cent, ranged from thirteen
to seventeen years of age; ten percent
from nine tc thirteen vears of age.
Furniture ami Carpets.
Heilborn's furniture and carpet
rooms, corner of Main and Squemocqhc
streets in this city present the hand
somest features of goods in that line
at present in the state. The stock is
not so large as some Portland dealers
carry, but it is first class, and prices
are on the scale of about San Fran
cisco. He has some elegant shades of
carpets for furnishing delicate rooms,
East Lake patterns, Brussels, nil wool,
three ply, etc. , etc. , and the finest of
furniture to correspond. East Lake
sets, Queen Anne, etc., predominat
ing all of 'the very best quality of woods.
Purchasers in Astoria should never
send abroad until theyhae inspected

An Klcjjant Prize.
Peter Wilhelm received an elegant
badge last evening from the house of
Henrichsen & Greenberg, Portland.
which will be presented to the cham
pion amateur billiardist of Astoria.
The badge is a very hansome one, and
will be deservedly prized by the luck'
winner. It is got up in the best style,
and represents the badge of the Nation
al Billiard association, with the cue
and the red and white balls, beauti
fully set in a wreath of gold, upon an
oval plate of gold, suitably inscribed.

We have seen samples of a splen
did quality of coal takeu from a vein
right here in the heart of Astoria.
Coal was found in the same locality ;i3
long ago as 1848. It is from Cocks
comb hill. We hope that the gentie
mauwho is so persevering Sn his re
searches may yet succeed in finding
coal upon some other than Northern
Pacific railroad lands, where all coals,
minerals, etc., are so reserved in the
deed as to render it uncertain, after a
few years, who owns the lauds, not
withstanding the purchase and sale.
A Murder Trial.
Portland Daily Bee.
Whitney, who was tried s, second
time and acquited Saturday, at Salem,
of the murder of Hibet tear Silver
ton, was rmt aboard the freight train
03 the sheriff and came down here the
same day, and we hear that he walked
yesterday to Vancouver to roe out of
the state of Oregon. No doubt exists
in the minds of people or jury that
this -man Whitney committed the mur
der in question, and even the jury
who tried Mrs. Hibert for complicity
with the murder felt that she was
gui'ty, but, on the circumstantial evi
dence before them, had to give her
the benefit of the doubt
The same was true of the man Whit
ney the evidence was circumstantial
and while the jury felt that the man
was a murderer, the connecting link
was wanting to fasten the crime upon
him conclusively. The jury was out
all night, standing ten for conviction
to two for acquittal, and the final ver
dict was only rendered after receiving
instuctions on the material point. It
was not positively proven that the gun
was ever in the hands of Whitney.
The people of Marion county, and
especially about from Silverton, are
excited and indignant that .this mur
derer should go unpunished. Whit
ney sought safety by leaving the out
raged community. The woman Hibert,
flourished a revolver Saturday morn
ing in the faces of those who believed
her guilty, and dared them to attempt
to a; enge the murder. We have an
unsatisfactory condition of afiairs when
murder can be committed under such
aggravated circumstances, and the
I villains escape and even reap the full
reward of their villainy by receiving
the amount of the insurance policy
that was taken out by them on the
murdered man's life.
But this is, after all, consistent with
the great principle of law that it is
better that ninety-nine who are guilty
should escape punishment than that
one innocent person should suffer.
People on Main street are begin-
ing to growl considerably, and justly
too, because the lamp-lighter's horse
chaws up the side-walk, .and raises
h ail Columbia generally. They say
it s got to be stopped. .

A gentleman in Portland, Maine
writes to J. G. Mcgler & Co., of
Brookfield for information respecting
fishes and fishing of the north west
ooast. He has had 21 years exper
ience as a curer of the haddock, and
if we have that fish would come to
Oregon with a view to entering upon
business. If he should have asked
for any other kind of fish almost, we
could ask him to come. Our Buffah -bas3
is the nearest to the haddock of
any we have here.
