That we have transacted and
disposed of the criminal business
submitted for our consideration
with all the dispatch in our power.
We have visited and examined
the public prisons of tlw county
and find the city jail of Astoria
well kept, and in all respects,
adapted to the purjxses for which
it was intended.
And while we believe the sheriff
of the county litis been honest and
ii.defutirible in the performance
of his official duties and has done
the best in his power with the
means at his command, we regret
to be compelled to follow the
example of our predecessors for
years last past, in condemning the
course of the County-court and
commissioners in their almost en
tire failure to furnish n county jail
either suitable or safe for the con
finement of persons convicted of
and charged with crime.
We feel that the miserable ex
cuse known as the county jail is
not only a disgrace to the law
abiding people of the county, but
that by the facilities it furnishes
for the escape of prisoners it gives
to the criminal class of the country
an almost perfect immunity from
merited punishment for crime.
In fact it seems to us that the
said count' authorities in failing
to take some proper action upon
the reports and earnest recommen
dations of so many grand juries
as have urged such measures to
be taken in respect to a county
jail, while larger amounts of money
have been expended on other so
called improvement, much lessira
peritivelv demanded, have been,
and are now, nianifestiiir a total
disregard of, and defiance to the
oft, and unmistakably expressed
desire and opinion of the law
abiding people of the coulity.
We have visited the offices per
taining to the courts of justice in
the county, and so far as we are
able to ascertain, find them well
kept and the laws faithfully ob
served and administered.
We think the manner in which
the records of of the county are
kept bv the county clerk worthy of
special favorable mention, but be
lieve that some safer mode should
be devised for tlie protection of
the public, records. The safe now
used for that purpose being as we
think entirely too small for the
increasing business of the county.
We find the books of the county
treasurer correctly and intelligent
ly kept. Having now disposed of
the business before us, we respect
fully ask to be discharged.

Beaver Lodge-room No. 35,
I.O.O.F., was hadsomely decorated for
the installation. The room is one of
the largest in the city, but upon the
occasion of the installation, Thursday
evening, there was not even standing
room for more. The impressive and
eloquent ceremony was intensely in
teresting to all. Following is a com
plete list of the officers installed:

A serious accident occurred to
Capt. A. J. Belmont, watchman on
the Ocklahama, Thursday evening.
The Orogonian says: "The Ockla
hama was swinging round to the
steamer California, near St. Helen,
to tow her off the sand bank. When
Mr. B. ran out on the guard to lower
a fonder. A strong current was carry
ing the Ocklahama against the steam
ship, and Belmont seeing danger of
being crushed ran forward to get out
of the way, but he was too late. He
was caught between the vessels and
crushed across the loin. The boat re-
J turned to Portland with the wounded
man at 1 o'clock this morning. He
was conveyed to St. Vincent's about
two. The injuries are very serious
J and may prove fatal.
Disaster at Sea.
The Astokian of January Gth, call
ed attention to pieces of wreck, hard
bread, charts, etc, washed up on the
beach below tlie Grimes hoMse. Frag
ments of the charts wore left at this
office by Mr. Grimes, showing that
they had not been long in the water.
That day Capt. A. D. Wass kit for
Clatsop beach to make an investga
tion, and forwarded to Cupt. Flavel a
small piece of the wreck, accompanied
by the following note, which was re
ceived yesterday merning:
Ci-atsoi. Jan. is. issi.
Cact. (iHo. Ki.aki.:
Sir: I have f.Mind several pieces of
the wreck, and articles from her, such
as buckets, barrel head, etc , all bran
ded Lupat. A portion of the upper
deck about twelve feot .square, with
two iron beams broken oh" at the ends,
sill of house fast to it. Small pieces
still coming ablwire. I think the wreck-
is sunk not far off. lours Kespctiuliy,
A. D. v-.
The Lupnta has been twice to this
port. She was an iron ship of 1035
tons, British, built in 1S75 at Harriuj,
ton, England, and commanded Ly
Capt. Irven. Jn this connection it is
proper to remark that the press had
no information of her expected arri
val; and there may be forty oilier res
sels en route of which we are equally
bletsfully ignorant. It may be right,
and it may be that it would be inter
ference in business to publish these
thing', but with all the boasts of
honesty on the part of some, and talk
of dishonesty on the part of others,
c tncerned in the commerce of Oregon;
to us it seems shameful that the peo
p'e are not permitted to know more
about the number of vessels expected
from foreign ports, chartered, or seek
ing cargoes upon arrival here. Capt.
Wass is still at Clatsop, and Mr. Cher
ry, agent of British Vice-Consul
Laidlaw has gone there to pursue
investigations with respect to the
disaster. The whole truth may pos
sibly never le known but ever' fact
and incident bearing upon the casu
alty, which CJin be reached by the
press will be noted in these columns
as we obtain the information.
Latest. We loarn that private dis
patches report the Cupt. of the Glen
fruen arrived at Victoria. Putting
this and that together a collision may
have occurred at sea between the Lu
pata and Glenfruen, but where?
when how? Are the questions to be
answered. The Gleiffruen arrived off
the bar December 5th, the same day
that the Star of the North, Balmore
and Largs wore towed in. The tug
Culumbia offered to tow the Glenfruen
in, but the captain said he wanted a
pilot and would not take a tug. A
heavy blow commenced the same night
and continued several days. Tugs
have been on the lookout for her, but
she has not been seen since. Her
foretopgallant and gibboom was gone;
otherwise apparently not disabled.
The Glenfruen was a wooden vessel.
