and had his triai and was acquitted,
on a charge of throwing out his net

A letter wsts picked up on the
Oregon Steam Navigation company's
dock, unsealed, which the owner can
have upon application at this office.
He may recognize it from an extract
which we quete: :One thing I have
not seen, and one thing I have not
heard, since I came here. I have not
seen Leinenweber mad (I hear that he
does get mad sometimes); and I have
not heard Jo. Hume speak the truth."
The "Boomerang railroad" grant,
as the defunct Oregon Herald used to
term it, was approved May 4th, IS70.
It was calculated to aid in the con
struction of a railroad "from Portland
to Astoria and McMinnvillc." The
settlement of this county has been
retarded, held in check; for nearly ten
years in consequence of this grant, and
yet there is no road. Now we want
to see congress legislate this grant
back to the public domain, for the
tise of settlers. If the holders of the
graait will not build this sixty-fivM
miles of nd, let the people have the
Jaindj if they want it, for cultivation.

In the Police court 3'esterday a wo

attached to the extreme doctrine
of state rights now as they were,
previous to the war. This is em
phatically denied by southern
members, and yet a few of these,
by their injudicious utterances,
betray that a little of the old lea
ven still lingers in their natures.
Those who admire the teachings!
of J chn C Calhoun, will have to
content themselves with ins theo
ries, which, so long as the union
exists, can never be put into prac
tice. This much was decided by
the results of the war, and has
been fully recognized by l lie Su
preme court of the United States.
In an opinion delivered bv Chief
.Justice Wake, in 1875, that jniint
was definitely settled. 1 he learn
ed jurist said:
The government thus established
and defined is to Home extent a gov
ernment of the states in their politi
cal capacity. It is also for certain
purposes a government of the ieople.
Its powers are limited in number, buti
not in degree. Within the scope of
its powers, as enumerated and de
fined, it is supreme and above the
states, but leyond it has no existence.
It was erected for special purposes and
endowed with all the powers neces
sary for its own preservation and the
accomplishment of the ends its peo
ple had in view. It can neither grant
nor secure to its citizens an' right or
privilege not expressly or by implica
tion placed under its jurisdiction. The
people of the United States resident
within any state are subject to two
governments one state and the other
national; but there need be no con
flict between the two. The power
which one possesses the other does
not. They are established for differ
ent purposes and have different juris
dictions. The fourth ol'.luly.
One of our valued correspondents
thinks that "it would be a reflection
upon Astorians to let the fourth of
July pass without a suitable celebra
tion." Perhaps it would. There are
a great many outsiders who would
come to town no doubt if there was to
be anything like a celebration. We
have always felt that fourth of July
celebrations were m some sort ot way
needful to the development of a proper
spirit among people in a community.
That celebrations should be conducted
upon a bu"s of patriotism, more than
policy; bu'lhisyear. as we have said
before, we made inquiry and found
that both Kttnotism and policy were
opposd t celebrating. If any per
son has d covered things dificrent
lr, ami thiik that we can celebrate;
pop ahead. Now is the time to begin,
if anything is to be done; and by
proper eoim littees making a canvas it
will not taki very long to find out just
how much eople want to celebrate,
basing patriotism upon the sum sub
scribed to hep it along.

And I have read of the boatman grim,
Who draws near with iiiuftlqd;oar

Of w aters deep and dark ;
Where the tide and billows oyer beat
Around our fragile bark.

In the cleansing of Jesus1 bloud :

Can see naught but a seething flood.
But I have oft in my visions and dreams
Stood hy the ripling tide.

And as 1 teppcd into its sintering wave
And supposed that I should have sank.

And as I gazed on the limped stream
To know why the waters were mocked,
I saw lMMieath its trlistning sheen
A bridge hewn of solid rock.
And 1 looked again with longing eyes
On that bright and joous shore.
And I recognized, mid the Shining
Many loved ones gone before.
And they seemed to beekon me away
To that bright and gladsome clime;
But mv mission on earth was not yet
And 1 must return, for a time.
But I longed to cross the crystal stream.
I fear no billows wave.
For Jesus I know will be with me there
Ready to aid and save.
And those who come down to the waters

Shall find Jesus' love as a bridge to the
