A Russian imperial decree is
published reducing the import
duty on .lalt, increasing1 that ou
foreign goods, imposing a tax on
trade guilds, and doubling the
storage dues on merchandise de
posited in the government ware
houses. The decree was to take
effect on the 13th inst.
The rirh planters of Hawaii find
the rice bird an ever increasing
curse. One plantation alone, t-m--bracinir
an area of about one hun
dred and fifty acres, is put to an
annual expense of about four thou
sand dollars for powder and sliot
and labor in the endeavor to pro
tect the rice from the little pests
And they estimate an additional
loss, frcm rice actually destroyed
by the birds, of not less than two
thousand dollars per annum. After
the birds are all killed oil', as in
France, planters will perhaps sur
render to the grub worm.
The San Francisco Bulletin ac
cuses Redpath of blasphemy, for
calling the Rev. Dr. Ilepworth a
flunkey and a coward. In the
same article the Bulletin admits
that Redpaths description of the
wrongs and sufferings of the Iri.li
were as truthful as they were
graphic, and Hepworths were very
different, "this reverened almoner
for American charity must be a
falsifier as well as a flunkey and
coward," and though the Bulletin
claims such language when appli
ed to a person as flat blasphemy,
it should not refrain from calling a
spade a spade. We do not think
the Queens conduct in Irish affairs,
though anything but praisworthy,
justified Redpath in calling her an
infamous woman, but we have no
..such tenderness for her son, the
duke of Edinburgh; fur his own
brother, Wales, who knows him
best, has called him a cad.
The New York Tribune is of
the opinion that the De Lesseps
canal bubble must burst, for the
statements of possible profits put
-out by De Lesseps through the
press must prove too strong for
the stomachs of the most ignorant
French peasants. Some of these
estimates are based on the idea
- that California wheat will pay
thirty-eight cents a bushel to the
canal company. This is sixty-one
and one-half cents a cental, and if
the vessel transporting the wheat
receives an equal sum, the naked
freight, to Liverpool, without in
surance or other charges would be
1 22A cents a cental or $27 4G,
equal to o 9s a long ton. As
freightby the horn generally ranges
from 2 os to o 10s, there is :is
little probability of our wheat be
ing transported through De
Lesseps' canal at any such toll as
over the Central Pacific railroad.
How will the Spanish subjects
' receive the double declaration of
their King, that his government is
endeavoring to extend the foreign
trade of the country, but that an
increase of taxation is necessary to
augment the naval forces and
strengthen the national defences?
At what point of her frontier is
Spain threatened with invasion?
And with what nation can she con
clude and equitable treaty of com
merce? And if trade means peace,
and the Spanish government has
onlr trade in view, where is the
necessity of preparing for war?
" If the questions were not deemed
impertinent, an answer would be
acceptable, not only to the people
of' Spain, but to other nations
those particularly that the conduct
of her naval officers has seriously
and repeatedly offended. It may
be very politic for a wasteful gov
ernment to give offense to a friend
ly power from time to time with
out going to the extreme of war,
so that a pretext may be had Tor
taxing the people in view of a
possible Avar; but it seems to us
that both the insulted nation aud
the taxed people should not allow
this game to be played too often
t their expense.
How Senators Elect Talk.
General Miller says: "1 expect,
gentlemen, the next six years will
be the most laborious period of
my life. I desire t do nothing,
ami nave no uusiness, no interest j
ii i . ,.
to devote my attention to, save
public affairs. 1 shall attend
strictly to the duties of my ofiice.
and shall have no business to dis
tract my attention from it, I shall
have nothing to do but to repre
sent the interests of California
aud to do my best for the inter
ests of the whole people." Col
onel Fair says: There is one
matter aniens: others that 1 will
endeavor to accomplish, and that
is to secure the free coinage of
gold and silver. If this can be
done a great advantage will have
been obtained for the people of
the Pacific coast.1
The WiUamet Flood.
Work on the east side road has
been vigorously pushed, and con
sidering the great amount of labor
to be performed and atteuding
difficulties, results are satisfactory.
The train north from Roseburg
reached Junction Thursday, and
the one south from Albany reach
ed Harrisburg. Repairs between
these points ivfll likely be finished
by tiiis evening. The water
having receded, Roadmastcr De
Clarke with a large force of men
got to work at Clackamas bottoms
Thursday morning, but it was
hardly possible to get that por
tion of the road in running order
last night. 1 f it should be repaired,
a train will start this morning
from Portland, and passengers will
get through by making a transfer
at Clackamas bridge. The regular
train will resume trips Mon
day, beyond nerad venture. The
Willauict will have receded
enough to allow boats to
pass through the locks at Oregon
cit, but the deposit of mud has
been so heavy during the long con
tinued high water, that it has be
come necessary to clean the canal.
This was done yesteiday by sluic
ing, aud boats will resume
regular trips to-day. Except
from Salem, no mails have
been received from the east
side of the valley since last
Thursday, and none from points
beyond Albany since Tuesday of
last week. Three days overland
mail is some place between Rose
burg and Redding just exactly
where the authorities do not
know. But all delayed mail will
be down on Monday's train.
He is Dead.
The papers are telling of a pilot
in Victoria who has invented a fly
ing machine. He took it down to
cape Flattery and tested it. A
heavy weight was attached to it
and it rose like a bird in the air.
Next a pig was tried, and he
squirmed through the atmosphere
like an enchanted horse floating on
pinions. An Indian was next fit
ted with the apparatus, and he
soared several hundred feet in the
air. They omit to mention that at
last he adjusted himself in the ma
chine, look wing, fell and broke
his idiotic neck; kicking convul
sively at the tangled springs these
were his dying words, "Give this
to the next dauiphool that .thinks
he's so infernally smart.'
The boers of South Africa have
been badly treated by the English,
foolishly and unnecessarily so,
since the second capture of the
cape of Good-hope from the
Dutch. The Irish peasant farmers
and the boers of the Transvaal
have been driven to resistance by
the failure to obtain redress for
grievous wrongs by peaceable
means. The policy of the crown
and the aristoctatic branch of the
government is the first to slaughter
them until the survivors submit
from fear and then grant as a favor
what had been demanded as a
right. This policy of refusing all
concessions until rebellion breaks
out, then killing the leaders and
giving the survivors what the
leader asked, is as old as the
mutiny at the Nore. The crews
of the fleet stationed at the mouth
of the Thames in the French war
refused duty because they had
been paid no money for three
years. The Kings advise! s in
those days hung the ringleadi r
and paid the men, and every hon
est Englishman from that day has
condemned the act as a cowardly,
cold blooded murder, and mi fut
ure generations will condemn the
Queen and her cabinet if they
have recourse to force before offer
ing justice. The boers are far off,
aud are being deliberately slaught-
