The Greenback-irs "Elysium
Mechanics get sixty dollars a day,
and common laborers sixteen a day
in Buenos Ayres. Book-keepers get
twenty thousand dollars a year
and extra zeal as a manager brings
senventy-tive thousand dollars. The
paper dollar is worth three cents in
gold. A loaf of bread costs thee dol
lars. Underground Telegraphing.
A beginning is being made of not a
new system if telegraphing, but a new
method of laying telegraphic wires.
It is proposed to dispense with the
telegraphic poles which have here'
fore turned the streets of cities into
unsightly lines of posts, and wires
strung with the relics of dismembered
kites, tangled strings, fluttering bits of
papers and old nigs. The plan is to
lay the wires inside of pipes buried
beneat the soil. Should it be proven
that the plan is a good one as a work
ing method, one might hope to see the
whole network of wires before a great
while disappear from sight, together
with the poles which sustain them.
Bidding for the Brazilian Trade.
The delegation appointed by a
meeeting of the citizens of New York,
in February last, to visit Brazil, with
the object of securing a larger trade
with that country, will take their de
parture, it is stated, about the oth of
July. It will be composed of manu
facturers and merchants, who will
take with them samples of American
wares, to be exhibited at Rio Janerio.
The emperor of Brazil is known to be
a friend to this country, and there is
little doubt but he will exert his in
fluence to promote closer commercial
relations with our people. The dele
gation will meet with a cordial recep
tion from him, and the trip be at
least a pleasant one, even if nothing
important is accomplished.
The Eat of the Land.
A correspondence of the Portland
Fanner writing from Turner's station
on the Oregon and California railroad;
If the clouds drop fatness this
spring, pure grease ought to run in
the furrows, and the pigs get fat by
simple contact with the soil. Here it
is the 25th of May, and the low
landers with but half their crops in
yet; while a scit is loose, or a belt
run off somewhere in the weather's
machinery ; and another thunder
storm passed over to-day. Surely
this is an unusual season. If it don't
stop raining before long, somebody
will begin to swear sure. Bleakney
Bros, have the frame of their shop
raised and are even yet hopeful of
securing line weather enough to get
their roof on during the summer.
Some other building is awaiting fair
weather; and business generally lags
for the same cause. The weatnerwise
say that the "planets are in perhelion',
(whatever that may be) which is the
cause of the general cussedness of the
weather. If so, why can't they get
out of " perhelion," and give ua a
It appears that in certain houses
in the elegant quarters of Paris, there
exists a coupe in which no one ever
rides, but which serves all the tenants
in common, thus: An honorary coach
man knocks at the door when you
have company, and asks, pointing to
the carriage, which remains externally
in the court-yard, if you require the
nse of it to-day, at the same time in
forming you that the bay horse is a
little sick. You reply that, in that
case, you will let the bay horse take a
day's rest, and your visitor thinks you
are the possessor of a horse and car
riage. This deceitful luxury is in
cluded in the rent.
Dr. Russell, who, at the opening
of the war of the rebellion, visited
this country as the correspondent of
the London Times, and is popularly
known here as "Bull-Run Russell," is
to be knighted and receive a valuable
appointment. This has been effected
through the influence of the Prince of
Wales and Duke of Sutherland, who
. are attached friends of Dr. RusselL

Enthusiastic Meeting at tho Court
house Iast Evening.
Pursuant to notice a public meet
ing was held at the Court-house in
this city last evening to consider the
railroad subject. Judge Bowlby
called the meeting to order and stated
the object of those who made the call.
Col. James Taylor was then chosen
chairman, and Mr. E. C. Holden sec
retary. Hon. W.D. Hare having taken a deep
interest in the matter was then called
upon, and addressed the meeting, re-
situation in a clear man-
and impressing his hearers with
a sense of the;r duty in connection
with the scheme.
Mr. !Newson?e, of Marion county, a
gentleman who it is well known has the
good of the whole of Oregon at heart,
was next called upon, and referred to
the neglected interests which the God
of nature has so bountifully spread be
fore us. The necessity for setting
forth the incalculable wealth and re
sources at our command, in order that
capitalists may assist us in the up
building of the country.
Mr. Robb followed Mr. ewsome,
and believed that whenever a person
said we could not build this road he
threw culd water upon a perfectly
feosile scheme. He said he could af
ford to, and would give, half of his
As ora property to secure the build
ing of this road, and that after giving
away half of all he had now, with the
iocd he would be worlh twenty times
as much as he is to-day without it,
and Ihe s.tire could be said of every
ma.i in Astoria.
Mr. Lienenweber followed Mr.
Robb and stated some of the solid
facls o be taken into consideration,
expressing the belief that by taking
hold of this malter in a practical way
success was certain. We have every
thing to gain and nothing to lose.
Mr. Hare again took the floor and
seated the object of the present sub
scription lo be to secure just such in
formation as would interest capitalists.
The following resolution, offered by
Mr.Holden, was unanimously adepted:
Resolved, That we, citiiens of As
toria convened for the purpose of dis
cussing the question of the construc
tion of a railroad from Astoria at the
mouth of the Columbia river to a
point intersecting the Oregon Central
railroad near Forest Grove, and from
thence to Winnemucca in the state of
Nevada as proposed by the Astoria
Winnemucca Railroad companj, fully
realize the necessity, desirability and
feasibility of the construction of said
railroad. And we do hereby pledge
ourselves to take stock m said road
according to our means, and to use
our influence in every way we can, to
influence our fellow citizens of Astoria
and all others interested, to do the
Mr. Seelye was present and showed
specimens of coal, mention of which
is made in another column. Consid
erable stock was subscribed last night
to enable the company to put engin
eers in the field this month, and pro
ceed with the preliminary work, se
cure right of way, etc., and be pre
pared to lay the plans before men of
capital, who stand ready to take hold
of it, and build the road.
Our report is necessarily brief, be
cause of the lateness of the hour, but
of one thing we feel quite confident
if Astorians will now go to work be
fore combinations are made to defeat
this scheme by outside parties; a com
mercial city will be saved to Oregon
where the commodities of the world
may be exchanged.
Seventeen names were added to the
list of subscribers to the capital stock,
during the recess following the adop
tion of the resolution above, and the
meeting adjourned until next Satur
day evening at 8 o'clock.
