The music for the Olympic club
x.b.b., next Friday evening at Liberty

the delight of listening to before at a
public party. It will be furaishtd by
Prof. J. H. Ross and a full quadrille

Operas: Pinafore, Chimes of Nor
mandy, Grand Duchess, etc., etc,

is now a live -and permanent organi
zation in our city, and intend to make
this the grandest affair that Astoria
has ever enjoyed.
Captain Hooper of the revenue
cutter Thomas Corwin, who made an
unsuccessful effort last year to discov
er the whereabouts of the Jeannette,
expects shortly to be dispatched in the
same direction on a second expedition.
The Corwin has undergone a thorough
everhauling and repairing, when it
was found that her coppers had been
considerably damaged, and that a por
tion of her shoe was gone. She is at
present lying at anchor in San Fran
cisco bay. Captain Hooper has as yet
received no orders frotn Washington
about making a second cruise, but has
his information from private sources.
Death from Exposure.
Mr. Simuel Walker of Grays river
settlement, informs us by letter of the
death of A. B. Soule from exposure
on the beach of Grays bay, on or about
the Utli or 10th inst. Soule was bet
ter known as the Old Trapper. He
had been missiii!: a few days before
any apprehensions were felt for his
safety. He lived on Seal river, a
tributary of Grays river, at Mr. J. R.
JlcClarkeiis plaee. He left his house
for the purpose of selling some furs,
on Sunday, the 9th. After disposing
of them to a peddling boat, he laid in
a supply of bad whiskey which, to
gether with the cold weather, sealed
his iatel After a few days Mr. Mc
Clarketi became uneasy about him and
went to soareli for him. On Sunday,
the lGth, McClarken in couiMiuy with
Peter Nuileen and John Callahan,
found him laying in his skilf on the
Iveach, having bun dead five or six
days. A coroners jury was summoned
to hold an inquest, and they returned
a verdict of death from exposure to
cold. The body was decently buried'
on the high land adjoining the bay.
Mr. Walker hopes that the fate of this
old man will be a warning t dealers
of pizen whiskey, but it won't; any
more than to those who ue it.
--Mayor Thompson, of Portland,
advocates large and continued appro
priations for the beuolit of Portland
by digging a ship canal to that place
from Astoria. President Hayes xu hiB
annual message to congress at the be
ginning of the present session specially
recommended the improvement of the
Columbia rlrer bar.
The Occidental and Oriental
steamship company 'have announced

issue, and will be honored by the
Pacific Mail steamship comKtny ou

-The Oregonian yesterday says:
Communication between this city and
all points south on the Oregon and
California railroad is still interrupted,
and breaks will not be repaired before
Friday or Saturda evening. The
water recedes so slowly that quick
work is out of the question. The
locks at Oregon city are still impass
able, but will likely be open to-morrow
uioraing wheal navigation will be
A Louisiana planter expresses the
fear that more colored laborers will
leave that state thau ever before. It
is estimated that a fourth of the souths
cotton crop in 1880 has been lost,
largely through lack of labor to gather
it promptly. The exodus is a bad
thing for the southern whites. They
ought to be able to see that it is to
their interest to treat the colored men
so well that they will be satisfied to
remain and do the work they have so
much capacity for.
A bound volume of Ayer's Alma
nac for 1881, just received from
Lowell, Mass., makes us wish we were
acquainted with several languages in
addition to the four or five in which we
are known to excel. We find here speci
mens of fourteen different languages,
the jaw-breaking Bohemian being the
latest addition, and the whole form
ing a very curious and unique produc
tion in the way of advertising. In
the British Indian Almanac of Dr.
Ayer, which is one of several English
editions of the little yellow-covered
manual, the calculations of the sun
rising and setting, of the moon's phas
es, etc., are adapted t the local tune
of various parts of India, and the
events mentioned, evidently collated
with care, are nearly all East Indian
or British history. The preparation
uf the various editions of the Alma
nac, all similarly adapted to special
countries or localities, aud the publi
cation of tkese Almanacs to the num
ber of ten or more millions per an
num, must involve immense labor and
expense; and the fact that these arc
all issued for gratuitous distribution is
an illustration of the enterprise of the
great patent medicine men.

Care of Lamps.
Buy the best oil. The lower
priced varieties are apt to be more
volatile and explosive. Have your
glass lamps securely hung-. Select
those in which the end of the
burner is elevated above the body
of the lamp. Lamps to be carried
should be of metal, have handles,
and be of home "safety"' pattern.
Fill the lamps by daylight, and
never while lighted. If obliged
to fill them at night, have the
light at least a yard off, and never
in a current of air. Lamps should
be filled daily, and never lighted
when partly empty. Never carry
a jiass lamp lighted. A lamp with
the wick turned far flown is
more liable to explode. Keep the
can in a safe place. Never pour
oil on the fire. If burning oil gets
on the floor, smother with woolen
blanket, rug, carpet or clothing. If
the clothing takes fire, wrap a
blanket, or a rug about the person,
and roll ujon the floor.
