Marshfield says: The schooner Arago,
now loading with lumber at North
3$end, was the first vessel built in
Coos bay. She ;s twenty-two years
old, ai'd is sliU doing good S2rvice.
She furnishes an illustration of the

superior strength and durability of
our Coos bay timber for ship building
purposes. Within the time that she
has been afloat, many an eastern
built vessel, in the construction of
which nothing but the best oak was

The Bee of the 20th says: "Mr.
John Burk left for Astoria th'"s room

The works will be in full blast some

The Oregon ian says the best epi
tome of the ideas of those who support
Slater's bill to prohibit the Clrnese in
this country from earn:ng a Tving is
set forth byVicTrevitt of The Dal
les, in his usual epigrammatic styie:
'The3T curse the Indian," he remarks,
'because he won't work for a living,
and the Chinaman because he will."
The divnie injunction was, "in the
sweat of thy face, thou shalt eat bread."
But Senator Slater would reverse or
abolish this, as to the Chinese popu
lation. The Eart Portland Call s?ys parties
along the river on both sides are pre
paring for the annual rise in the Co
lumbia, the wate. having come up
three feet during the week, and is
fttill rising. There have been heavy
rains east of the Cascades for ten days,
which aid in swelling the volume of
water from the melting snows. It is
thought by old residents that we will
have extraordinary righ water this

taken by property-holders, as "water
will find its level."
