SUNDAY A phil 27. 1.S79
We are not at liberty to pub
lish private dispatches, nor would
we abuse coniiJjncj noosed in us !
to that extent, concerning ih" n-'
gotiations and ajrre Clients of tho-c '
concerned in the San Francisco, .
Astoria and Portlaiv.l fines,
this much we are privileged to say I
that it is very doubtful if there will
be ainr more opposition. And on
this point we may say that we
shall not feel any deep regrets:
for various reasons, chief of which
is that ruinously low rates are
not of benefit to the State, nor to
the owners of the vessels. Mr.
Cornwall has no doubt purchased
the steamship Knickerbocker, and
this new steamship State of C ili
fornia will be here soon; but all
will share alike, should Mr. Corn
wall put the Knickerbocker on,
and freights and fares will very
likely be as follews:
First Cabin Sl.r 00
Second" 10 00
Freight per ton 2 50
Bona fide immigrants will be
passed at half rates7 first and
second cabin, or steerage, accord
ing1 to their choice. This will
rule against the "hoodlum ele
ment" because only those who
can prove themselves entitled
will be passed at the half rates.
"With the advent of the State of
California, and should the Knick
erbocker come on, the line will be
equipped with four of five of the
best steamships afloat, the Ore
gon, Elder. California, etc. Mr.
Villard of the Oregon Steamship
line is in San Francisco, and with
a party of capitalists will reach
Osgon by the Elder this week.
They have secured parlor and suits
of rooms at a private residence
in Portland, and will remain here
sometime to arrange the final de
tails of business in connection with
the line. We cannot dismiss the
subject without expressing the
fact that Capt. Carroll has the
fullest confidence of his late em
ployers. It is rumored that the
lost ship was not as seaworthy a
vessel as she might have been, and
by direction of the secretary of the
treasury a full and extended in
vestigation of the matter of her
last certificate will be made.
Conceriiinir Yi recks.
In very many particulars the
government of this nation is weak
anil vasodilating, but in none more
so than than that of the care and
custody of wrecked vessels. Had
the iil-fated steamer Great Re
public bet'ii under the British Hag,
we should have been spared the
infliction of anything tending to
mob-law or violence at the scene
of the wreak to disgrace the efforts
to save the baggage of passengers,
and the freight of consignees. The
whole mutter would have been
placed under the direction of the
Collector of tho port. As it was,
we have to view the painful spec
tacle enacted on Sand island, and
witness the embarrassments of the
officers of the ship in their emer
gency. Through the interference
of th commander at Fort Ganby,
and that of the master of the reve
nue steamer Thomas Corwin, acts
of vandalism were summarily
stopped, but there was not the
shadow of law in all the great
statutes of this government for
such interference, and here is
where the shame appears. Con
gress should enact a law forthwith
inakinjr it the duty of collectors at
dlpoits in the United States to'
take these matters in hand, that '
they may act in concert with !
boards of underwriters, to prevent
the repetition of such disgraceful
acts as we have seen, and endeavor
to properly protect the property of
citizens. Every board to trade, '
anl merchants exchange, and
chamber of commerce in the land,
as well as the press of the country r
should labor f: the interest of" se
curing some act from congress,.!
necessarv to briivr about tins iraich
needed system. Over iir England
it ;s ship looses only so much as an
anchor, the iinder must return to a
government officer, coist guard,
collector, or otherwise; and if he
fails to do so suffer the penalty.
Chinese Question fit Ottawa.
The Chinese question has come
up m a spirited manner in the do
minion parliament at Ottawa. The
discussion was spirited, and many
facts were stated and opinions ex
pressed very jLnilar to what has
been stated on this coast and by
our senators and representatives
in congress. Mr. DeCosmos, of
Victoria, is a representative from
British Columbia in the dominion
parliament, and he could speak
and did speak from his own knowl
edge and observation on this coast,
as to the injurious effects upon the
business of the country, and the
employment and wages of the
white race. Others took similar
views, and advocated the passage
of the motion before the house.
We wonder, says the Alta, if
the people of the eastern states
who have made themselves so free
with our business, interests, and
reputation on this Pacific coast on
the Chinese question, whose jour
nals have disgraced the name of
journalism in denouncing us for
our anti-Chinese opinions, will
listen to the views expressed in
their neighboring country's capital
in regard to the Chinese question?
It appears that the British have
views similar to those entertained
by Americans wo mean the Brit
ish of the dominion of Canada.
And while, on tliis subject, we
should like to know whether Presi
dent Hayes and his cabinet have
done, or are doing, or are intend
ing to do anything, in answer to
the unanimous petitions, opinions
and desires of the people of this
whole coast. Ii might be well for
them to remember us and our
