John Sheridan Policed.
If John Sheridan had been the
possessor of i fiddle, a corn-cob pipe,
or a sack of quartz specimens, he
was, perhaps, among those who pre
ferred saving his own collaterals to
that of aiding helpless women or
children, at the rescue of passen
gers from the ill-fated steamship Great
Republic on the 19 th. It is a waste
of words to reply to his playful dis
course in yesterday's Oregonian, one
sentence of which reads as follews:
"AS regards all other dispatches si
ting forth the liberality of the citizens
of Astoria in th rowing open hotels, resi
dences, etc.. it is a wicked lie, made to
suit the whims of its citizens, the ma
jority of whom live upon fishing, ship
wrecks and plunder, as as an occupa
tion." For the benefit of the Oregonian Ave
may say that Mr. "John Sheridan,
steerage passenger," is a base ingrate,
and his words a malicious slander of
"a majority" of the citizen. of Astoria.
"We will n'ot pretend to defend a
mass of vandals here, who came to
Oregon also, perhaps, in the steerage
of a ship, flat broke.
TYomcn Wauled Westward.
Commenting upon a correspondence
from Walla Walla, published in Tun
Astorian recenty, the Boston Post
says: " Emigration is not only a
civilizing means, but a means of ex
tending civilization. Fifteen thous
and women from Massachusetts, or a
hundred thousand from New England
would do much for the elevation of so
ciety and the security of good morals, in
the states where the balance is largely
with the men. If the Home Missionary
society should send them west, where
they could allget married, it would do
more for christian culture than in any
other way; and if the tract society
would devote its funds to putting
them in western homes it would do
better than sending printed traces
there. If we had a hundred daughters
under our control' we would land them
all west of the Mississippi within one
year." The New York Sun says that
"marriage statistics for Massachusetts
for 18 7 reveal a state of society which
is far from normal. There are too
few marriages in proportion to popu
lation, and the consequence is seen in
the widespread immorality for which
the home of the Puritans is getting so
unenviable a reputation." This is the
first we have heard that the reputa
tion of Massachusetts was bad. Noth
ing, however, is perfect, but we
thought Massachusetts w;is as near
that as possible; but our views appear
to have been incorrect, and, now that
women have ranged so far ahead of
the men in numbers, we can conceive
of no avowedly civilized means to
overcome the disparity, unless it is by
the basis proposed in the Post.
The Walla Walla Union says: It
is understood that Dr. D. S. Baker
now only owns one-seventh of the
stock of the Walla Walla and Columbia
river railroad company, the rest be
ing the property of Messrs. Ainsworth,
Ladd, Tilton, and their associates, who
at the tost meeting unanimously ten
dered Dr. Baker the presidency of the
company and the management of its
operations and extensions. Tendered
as the presidency was by gentlemen
who have had great experience in the
construction and operation of means
of transportation, it may be justly
considered a high tribute to one who
has devoted more time and money to
providing a way to market for the
surplus produce of this valley than all
the rest of us.
The Walla Walla Statesman, re
ferring to a melee in which an editor
took part, expresses our sentiments
exactly in the following verse: A
soft answer turneth away wrath, and
editors ought to be first to carry ont
the principles inculcated in that
proverb. If there is anything we dis
like it is fighting, and would rather
' apologize any time than do such things
when we are in the wrong. We be
lieve all other editors have the same
feeling. The only difficulty is to make
them believe they ever arc wrong.
RcceiPt to CureScab in Sheep.
vrniTTKX rou thkamorus.
One pound of mercury or quicksil
ver, half ouuee verns turpentine, two
ounces spirits turpentine: work well
together for six hours. Take four and
a half pounds hogs lard, heat to tem
perature of new milk warm, add to
tirat composition and stir till cold.
If yu wish a greater quantity add in
proportion. It may be applied at any
time the scab is discovered. The best
time is when the sheep are sheared.
Apply with a rag and rub it on all
parts where the scab appears. My
experience for three years convinces
me that it is buth a cure ajid preven
tive. It kills the germ left on tho
fence or log from the rubbing of the
sheep, and saves tho trouble and ex
pense of the sheep dip every year.
