The Harbor of Refuse.
Quoting from The Astoria x of the
9th, upon tlie subject of the proposed
harbor of refuge, the Con allis Gazette
This being taken for granted, as
the war maps .and experience of com
petent pilots fully warrant, the ques
tion of location narrows down between
two points, to-wit: Cape Fouhveather
and the mouth of the Columbia. Be
tween these, let facts decide. Some
of the most serious difficulties in the
way of the commerce of this state,
occurs between Astoria and. Portland.
A harbor of refuge at the mouth of
the Columbia, would not obviate these
difficulties. On the other hand a hav
bor uf refuge at Cape Fuul weather and
railroad connection with Portland,
would. This is s simple, and yet,
we believe, a truthful proposition, and
one that Portland should not be slow

A Devoted Brother-
In Algeria two brothers have been
condemned, one to death and the
other to transportation for life; a third
brother, married, and father of two
children, has sold his farm, and de
clares he will follow his convict brother
to Cayenne and reside with him. His
wife can remarry if she please?. Th;s
recalls Alexander the Great and
the Syrian princess, who, when per
mitted to select one male member of
her family from execution, chose her
brother rather than her husband.
A Plasuerist PJaguetl.
Sir Charles Legard, member of par
liament for Scarborough and an inti
mate friend of the Prince of Wales,
recently surprised tne House ny a s
capital speech arjaiust Mr. Trevyan's
country franchise motion. His sap
porters were delighted, hut soon learn
ed from the Scarborough Mercury
that the ideas and words of the bril
liant oration were stolen from some of
Canning's speeches. Extracts from
them were placed side by side with
the report of Legard's speech,
much to his discomfiture and to the
delight of the liberals.
The San Francisco Herald saj's
all the coin in California is gradually
creeping into old stockings, etc. There
is nothing m the world so timid as
money. It takes alarm at every com
motion. Hoarding is now the order
of the day. Soon the men who are
producing this commotion, will be
around begging for money and cold
victuals from the very men whom
they have tried to intimidate. Cali
fornia has already invested over a hun
dred million dollars in United States

thus rushing out of the state with
The Australian Shipping News
Says: ''We have heard of hams and
pork being used on the American river
boats to bring the steam to its great
est pressure in the excitement of a
close race, but we think that the late
adventurous journey cf the hopper
Goohva, which has just completed
her voyage of 22G days from Glasgow
to Adelaide, was the first occasion on
which sharks were used to keep up
the fires in the furnaces. While coast
ing along at western Australia they
found the sea to abound with these
creatures, and being at the verr end of
resources in the way of fuel, they
caught them wholosnle ;md pitched
them bodily into the fire."
The Bee says: "We need not
concern ourselves whether the North
ern Pacific intends to come direct to
Portland, for it cannot avoid connec-
tion with Oregon railroads, even if it
aoes not. uenerai opraguo uinuus
that that company is prepared to place
the 200 miles from the commencing
point, at the mouth of Snake river to
Pen d'Oreille lake, under contract, as
the iron for the same can be had by
payment of the company's bonds, at
par. We may hope to see this much
linished next summer. A road from
th.3 east to the navigable waters of the
Columbia cannot but build up Oregon
and Portland, and we must welcome
its construction as an important aid
to our prosperity."

"Why Flowers Turn to the Snn.
llarjwra MatiaztTtc for May.
"WiesncT has presented to the
Vienna Academy a monograph
upon heliotropifqn and geotropism
in plants. After a historical sketch,
the author treats of the influence
of light on lieliotropism, and shows
that with decreasing intensity of
l'ght the strength of the heliotropic
effect increases to a certain point
and beyond this point decreases.
1 he lower limit ol light intensity
coincide? with the lower limit of
heliotropic effect, for the stoppage
of growth in length, while the up
per limit does not coincide, or only
occasionally coincides, with the
upper limit of heliotropic effect for
growth in length. In the case of
a very sensitive heliotropic plant
the upper limit of light intensity
lor stoppage of growth in length
lies higher, and in less sensitive
plants lower than the upper limit
for growth in length, lie con
siders the relation between the re
frangibility of rays and their helio
tropic effect, and shows that por
tions of very sensitive heliotropic
plants, as vicia sativa, curve in all
lights, even in the ultra-red and
ultra-violet, except the yellow.
Experiments on the joint action of
helioropism and geotropism are
next described, and the author con
concluded that the phenomenon of
j lieliotropism is due to unequaled
growth upon unequally-lighted
sides of the plant.
