Fears f Another Flood-
From the latest reports received
yesterday, it seems certain that the
W'illamet will rise to the bight attained
January 36th, when it reached twenty
one feot and six inches. The reports
when received indicated that the river
would rise fur another twenty-four
hours. The Wiliainet at Portland
nse two inches per hour, and at Salem
five inches per hour. The Sniitiain,
the principal tributary f the Wil
lamot, was rising at the rate of one
inch per hour and as within five
inches of reaching last mouths mark.

Salvage on the Dakota.
In our i-siu of Thursday last we
made mention, (the information hav
ing been lereived from a Puget sound
paper) that the Pacific Coast Steam
ship company hud made a claim for
salvage upon he entire cargo of the
Dakota, and have demanded of every
consignee six per cent, upon the value
of his consignment. The salvage was
claimed by the Victoria, which steamer
it was reported belonged to the same
company as the Dakota. We are since
in receipt of reliable information that
the Victoria does not belong to the
Pacific Coast Steamship company, but
some of the fctockholdei- of that com
pany own part of her. It is therefore
not the Pacific Const Steamship com
pany who claim vilvage on the Da
kota. lit Salem all the saloons are closed

Mr. 1. C. Johnson, of Goose lake,
writes to a friend in Astoria that the
present winter so far has been the
mildest that country has experienced
for a number of years. Since his ar
rival at Goose lake he has turned his
attention principally to agricultural
pursuits. He has probably several
mules to deal with, we would infer,
from the fact that he writes f.ir three
of Kendall's treatise on the horse.
He says: "The railroad from Reno
is pushing towards us rapidly and 1
presume that your Astoria and Winwe
mucca line will connect at the state
line or pass through this vicinity, not
a great distance from Goose lake
valley. So hurry tip your railroad
business, for we want a through con
nection." Mr. Johnson expects to
be in Astoria early in the spring.
Mr. Grimes arrived in the city
yesterday from the Sea-side aud re
ported that another body from the ill
fated Lupata came ashore on Thursday
near the Grimes house and was given
christian burial. It was undoubtedly
one of the six bodies reported to have
come ashore over a week ago. The
head was gone, which was probably
caused by the body beating against
the rocks. The body had in several
places been oaten by birds. The spot
where the six bodies were first seen is
situated between two high bluffs pro
jec ting so far into the sea that man
can only round them at extreme low
water, and then only when no heavy
swell interferes. During the past
week the sen has been so high that to
reach the spot was impossible, conse
quently our informant could not state
whether the bodies were there yet or
not. Another attempt, however, will
be made to roach the spot, to-day.
