Real estate in Astoria has an up ward look the past few days. The British bark Sylhet, from thi port, arrived at Queestowii n the 18th. Muddy water from the Columbia river extends to sea for a distance f oyer twenty miles. One of the delicacies of the sea son is Smoked Smelt for sale at the Central market of Mr. John lingers. The only item of marine news yesterday was the departure of the Bothesey Bay, wheat laden for Europe. The American ship Kate Daven port, loaded with railroad iron, sailed from New York for Portland, Oie gon, on the 1 1th. County taxes must be paid befoie the first of February to save costs. Sheriff Twombly has your aceonut. Walk up and settle it. The Welch-hill water company have within a few days put water into the Custom-house, Masonic hall build ing, White house tore and oifices up stairs, and Tni: Astorian building. A gold pin (fastened to a bobbin ette tie), black enameled, vwjth K raisVd piece of gold upon it, wai Ufst on Thursday morning, in Astoria.

Tillamook rock light will be shfcwii as per notice recently publish ed, February 1st. The fog siren ar rived in Portland from New York last week, and is now beitig put together at Smith Bros, for the purpose of thoroughly testing it. This done, the siren will be taken by the Shubrick to the rock, and permanently erected. Senator Slater has placed us under obligations for valuable documents added to The Astokian library, in cluded among which are the annual statements of the chief of the bureau of statistics on commerce and naviga tion for the year ended J une SOth, 1879, our Foreign Commerce for 1878, and the annual report for the year ended June SOth 1878. All important matters for reference. The music for the Olympic club x.b.b., next Friday evening at Liberty hall, will be such as Astoria never had the delight of listening to before at a public party. It will be furaishtd by Prof. J. H. Ross and a full quadrille band from Portland. The Lancers, and other dances from the popular Operas: Pinafore, Chimes of Nor mandy, Grand Duchess, etc., etc, will be introduced. The Olympic club 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 that it will heretofore issue excursion tickets to Japan aud return fmin San Francisco at the rate of $350 for the round trr . These tickets will be good for three months from the date of issue, and will be honored by the Pacific Mail steamship comKtny ou the return trip, providing the holder desires to travel by that line. -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 resumed. 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.

Prof. Wilder 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. Lecture!. Dr. .1. I.
