Some sensational cuss, relating the
iiicmcuis oi me powuer explosion at
Trenchard & Upshur's fire says, in a
letter to the Oregenian: "Fortunately,
no one was materially hurt, though tlie
force of the concussion prostrated some
and sent others half way across the
dock." That fellow is worse than "Joa
quin Miller, Oregon,' whose wife infer
tmttally says "he is old enough lo know
whether a falsehood answers his purpose
better than the truth.' Jf the Oregonian

Astoria it should secure the services of
a truthful man.
A half demented man in Astoria

Tt is stated that one-half of the stock

The probabilities' are that the dock will
be commenced ths summer.
The Oregonian of yesterday says:
The annual spring flood of the 'Colum
bia river commenced about two weeks
airo. and the river is rishur now at the
rate of about six inches per day. A cor-
responding rise in the Wallamet has
occurred, and yesterday it came over
the lower floors of most of the docks
along the citv front. The mountains
west and north which sent their streams
to the Columbia river are reported to be
heavily covered with snow, and if the
weather should suddenly become in-
tensely hot, the flood whould be great
and disastrous. In any case, the water
will probably be unusually high this

not declare that congress might not
make such a treat', but no such au

the Poncas are concerned.
The senate committee on epidemic
diseases are making an earnest effort
to agree on a bill to prevent the in
troduction and spread of yellow fever
and similar pestilences, but there is
still such a serious conflict in their
views as to excite a painful apprehen
sion of failure. In such a matter a
spirit of compromise would be highly
commendable. The interests at stake
are so great that no effort should be
spared to effect the object aimed at.
