D. C. IRELAND
SATURDAY May 24. IK7!.
Queen Victoria will to-day complete
her GOth 3'ear. On the 23th of June
last she celebrated the 40th anniver
sary of her coronation. She succeed
ed to the crc.vn on the 20th of July,
1837, but was not crowned for neatly
a year afterwards. Egbert, the
first king of all England, ascended the
throne in 827, exactly 1,010 .years be
fore Queen Victoria's accession, and
now as though England had not per
plexity enough with wars to the east
of her, wars to the south of her, and
"over-production" at home, someone
has set an impertinent interrogation
point after the Queen's legitimate title
to the throne. The argument is as
follews: Francis V, of Modem, head
of the house of Stuart, had one
brother, Ferdinand, and two sisters,
Maria Theresa and Mary Beatrice.
Ferdinand married a daughter of the
Archduke Joseph, of Austria, Pala
tine of Hungary, and died in 1S49,
leaving an only child, six months old.
That child is now the Archduchess
Maria Theresa; of Austria-Este, who
was married February 20, 1SG8, to
Prince Louis, of Bavaria. The oldest
child of this marriage, Prince Rup
jrecht, of P.avaria, born at Munich,
May 18, 1SG9, is, therefore, now the
direct male representative of the royal
line of Stuart, and would be the heir
to the throne, if the Salique law ex
isted for that house. It cUkss not, and
therefore, the Archduchess Maria The
resa, spending her summers quietly on
the green shores of lake Constance,
has the "divine right" to the throne
of England, and the Counters Balmo
ral, diving around among the Italian j
lakes, would perhaps be doing the fair
thing, if she would preserve her in
cognito for the rest of her life. If
Maria Theiesa should die, the crown
of England would still belong to some
of the sisters and cousins resulting
.from the marriage of Mary Beatrice,
youngest sister of Francis V, of Mo
dena aforesaid, with Don Carlos IV,
of Spain. She has two children, Don
Carlos V, and Don Alphonso. Ac
cording to this, when we were making
much of Don Carlos in this country a
few years ago because lie was a pos
r .Kible king of Spain, we ought to have
made something of him for a possible
king of England. However, so many
lives stand between him and the right
to the throne, to say nothing of the
actual occupation of it by the Guelph
family, that Don Carlos undoubtedly
looks on his English chances as a cas
tle in Spain, which will not be apt to

. The pressure of the bard times
is leadinir to a erv for cheap food,
and some curious facts are coming
out as to the quantit' of American
meat that is sent over here and
sold as English at high prices.
C'A Shipmaster" states that bis ship
was supplied at Boston last Christ
mas with the follewing:
Beef (very superior) 11?V dolls, per bar
rel ofikH) lb., equal to-4Ks., not quite 3d.
Pork, 10 dolls, per barrel, equal to 42s..
or 2d. per lb..
Hams, fresh cured, 8 rents, or-hl. per lb.
Baeon, fresh cured, .S3-' cents, or -J3d.
Ever7- steamer that arrives from
Boston, he says, brings from 50 to
200 tons to England, and one half
the ham and bacon sold in the
manufacturing towns in the north
is American. Another correspon
dent complains of the London
batchers, who keep up the enor
mously high price of meat, not
withstanding that there has been a
fall of from Id. to l-.j-d. per pound
both in live and dead market. At
this time last year the price of beef
in the Metropolitan market was Gs.
a stone of eight pounds; and for
mam weeks past it has never
reached higher than 5s. 4d.; yet
the conrumer receives not the
slio-htest benefit from the reduc
tion. Sheep have also been cheap
er, though not to so great an extent.
A little touch of co-operation is
needed to bring prices to their
A Female Crusoe-
The San Francisco Call contains
an interesting account of an Indian

the coast of southern California. t
aiul snont IS voars nlniio thorn I,l i
fore she was rescued. The fact of
her existence was discovered by a '
i , p i i i i
man who wont from the mainland ;
to hunt for otters, and who found j
lootprints sunk deeply m the
srround. He was unable to follow
up these indications for nearly
l , f .- !
mree veare, wneii one vl :i pariv j
who accompanied him came siul
ilenly upon the object of their
search. She was in a small circu
lar enclosure made of brush-wood,
about live feet liiirli and six feet
in diameter. She was clothed with
a pirment made of skins of the shajr,
a species of duck that can neither
walk nor fly. This garment reach-
d almost to her ankles when she j
, ,. . . I
hue was sitting- cross-1
leirjrpd skinning- seal -blubber with
a rude knife made of a piece of
hoop iron driven into a piece of
wood. There was no covering on
her head, except a thick matted
mass of hair, of a yellowish brown
color, probably owing to exposure
to the sun and weather: it was, in
short, as if the ends had rotted off.
There were some wild dogs on the
island, a few of which kept near
her, and seemed to regard her
as a mistress. She had lived on a
i-litifr vrtmiiltliiifr P'lhlvimt r?iliifl I
bv Californians vain santo and a i
root known nscreomttc alsoblubber
of the various kind of seals, &c.
She had a rude apparatus for catch
ing shell-fish, and strong fishing
lines made of seal sinews, which
seemed to indicate that she fished
in the ocean. The expression of
her face was pleasing, her features
were regular, her complexion much
fairer and her form more symmc
tcricai than that of the Indan wo
- . .... i
men on the adjoining mainland, j
Some suspect that she belonged to
a tribe much further north. She
could not understand anything
said to her in any of the Indian
dialects of south California, but
she had a wonderful capacity for
conversing by signs. She retained
all her teeth, but they were worn
low, supposed to be due to her
chewing tough and hard articles of
food. Her age appeared to be fifty
years. She bowed to all who came
near, greeting them with a smile.
She accompanied her discoverers to
their vessel, but her conduct at
once convinced them that she re
tained the virtue of female mod
esty. She showed singular dex
tentv in making water vessels
from grass and a&phaltum, a sub
stance which is plentiful both on
the island and mainland. She
seemed to recognise various appli
ances of civilization. She died
about seven weeks after reaching
the mainland, partly from dysen
tery, brought on by eating fruits
and vegetables. Padre Gonzalez,
the. superior of the mission at Santa
Barbara, has sent her dress of
shagskins and her basket and im
plements to Rome, to the museum
of the Propaganda.

The attitude of the Oregonian
on Senator Slaters bill, looking to
protection against Chinese slavery,
does not meet with the approval
of the mass; indeed it has few if
any supporters outside of a few
bigoted, narrow-minded fanatics,
who never looked at a subject
from a broad standpoint. Our
section is cursed by the hoards
that is here, and which continues
to come. We have tried in vari
ous ways to obtain relief, but so
far failed, and now apparently a
way is opened up, and instead of
claiming friends to the poorer and
middle class of whites, giving it a
support or else condemning it on
good substantial constitutional
grounds, the journal in question
condemns the bill in an evasiove
incoherent manner which docs not
contain a sentence of argument.
As the leading journal in the new
northwest the Oregonian should
try and reflect public opinion or
else adduce good reason why pub
lic opinion is wrong.
