The Oregonian says: On account
of high water and strong currents in
the Columbia this winter, instead of
low water as usual, the expense of
towing logs to this city from down
river points has been nearly double
the customary price. Tugs are en
gaged by the hour, and they can make
very little progress against the tide.

Our New Game Birds.
The Mongolian santl grouse, eleven
in number, sent from China by Consul
Denny, were taken over to Skipanou
yesterday by Mr. II. Carnahan and
set at liberty between that place ami
the Sea-side. Those birds were great
ly admired by all who saw them, and
if they are not destroyed, no doubt
we will have an entirely new breed o
game lirds. Great care should bo
taken by hunters not to kill any of
this species of game. They may be
readily distinguished from any other
game bird at present in this vicinity,
being about the size of a quail, of a
brownish-vellow color and have a foot
resembling that of a mole, as described
in Mr. Morgan's letter. We would
like to see every resident at Clatsop
and vicinity and keepers of seaside
resorts koep this matter strictly in
mind and caution their guests against
On Saturday next, weather permit

is in splendid condition for a track of
any length. The steamer Sam will
make two trips to Skipanon, convey
ing people to and from. The race will
take place about two o clock r. ai. If
tho weather is unfavorable the race
will be postponed to take place on the
first pleasant day thereafter.

More recent advices from Lieut.

The Wall-walla Watchman, speak
ing of the loss of cattle, says: "John
Bush, out of 300 head, lost fully 200
head. Martin Luckcnbill, out of 300
head, has about seventy-five left.
Schuler & Bachman, out of 150,
saved forty head. Harvey Shaw, in
horses, lost twenty-five out of 100.
How much he lost in horned stock is
yet unknown, but $3,000 will not pay
for it. Others along the Touchet lost
in proportion, and the loss to the
country is incalculable."
