Astoria, Oregoc, Tuesday Morning, March 29, 1881.
Wamiixgtox. March 1.
Cosig.ess ppropritcl $3,379,
S?l 45 for the district for the
fiscal year ending .Tmie 30, 1S82,
of which oue half, or d,GS9t933.74,

oticitte the numerous eircum
locutions bv which the mother of
President Garfield is alluded to,
-vve wish to suggest that the proier
and dignified term is Madame
Garfield, and trust that in futme
this may be used to the exclusion
of such phases as "the venerable

Among the visitors to Washing
ton on inauguration day was a
colored man six feet seven and a
half inches in hight, who ca:.ic
from Harford county. This is
almost equal to the altitude of
Long John Wentworth, who is,
perhaps, the tallest native-born in
the United States, and at the same
time the heaviest tall man, both in
avoirdupois and spondulix.
President Garfield is equal to all
occasions. The temperance peo
ple presented a very nice question
to deal with, but the President
moved around it gracefully with
out jrivinjr a word of offense or
committal. And now the Cobden
club have sought to take hini in
their free-trade doctrines, to which
he answers by letter that, while he
approves of all possible ventilation
of the subject of freet-trade in
America, for various patriotic
reasons he is unable t carry out
all the principles of the club, and
they are happy with tliis answer.
The woatlier liere the past week
has been "variable." Sunday the
irrepressible conflict of the moment
was whether to wear the seal-skin
or the new spring wrap. Either"
would briuti; regret that it was not
the other. To-day fresh blades of
green grass are forcing their way
upward under the impulse of com
ing spring. A fringe of living
green trims up the bare spots of
winter with a pleasing contrast.
Soon .the trees will send forth their
messengers to spy out the summer
land, and then the modest wild
ilowers. off under the faded and
forgotten leaves of the dead year,
will hold up their bright faces like
diffident children. And then spi li
nage will come and gladden the
heart of the wretched being whose
appetite has increased as his senti
ment has vanished, and it won't be
a bad tiling to take with his rations
of bacon and fresh-laid eggs.
Ex-Governor Jewell, chairman
of the Republican National com-
mittee, is quoted as saying: "It is
a good cabinet practical, efficient,
able, working men, and by no
means lacking in intellect; but if
it is General Garfield has enough
to supply all deficiencies. I be
lieve the present administration
will give us republicans in office
the country over, m which will
give us a republican party the
country oyer. In many of the
southern states we have had no
party for four years, so Iwge
portion of the official j)atroage
being in democratic hands. This
condition of affairs, 1 liope, believe,
and ktoo, is going to be chauged.
I have had very satisfactory inter
views with 1 won't say whom
since I have been here, and one
thing you can set down as certain
that hereafter none hut republi
cans will be put on guard."1
The secretary of slate yesterday
addressed a 'note to the British
legation on the subject of the false
reports sent by the acting British
consul at Philadelphia iu regard to
the prevalence of disease among
the swine of the western states.
The secretary reiterates the state
ments made in Mr. Kvarts note of
the 7th of March that all the means
of information at the recourse of
the department concur in s'nowing
the late published report as wholly
witliout foundation, but the argu
ments prove to us that porlc is un
fitor all human food and we
would surrender hogs t the Chi
nese under legal restrictions in a
sanitary sense. However, the sec
retary of state suys that all this
o-overnment can learn after search-
ing inquiry leads irresistibly to the
conclusion that the good faith of
Her Majesty's representative at
Philadelphia has been imposed up
on by designing speculators to
their own selfish interests and the
incalculable injury of legitimate
commerce. The secretar further
expresses his trust that the British
minister will concur with him in
the opinion that no steps can be
too urgent or too imperative to
ovei take and contradict this false
statement, and, that this govern
ment ootvfidently looks to Her
Majesty's legation for an authorita

Facts and Fancies.
S.w FrattciNoo l'Milk'tiu.
General Gnmt, from being the
niofct taciturn and self-containad of
men, 1ms become the most talka
tive, not to say garrulous. This
change has come over l.im since
his defeat for a tl,;rd term in the
last National republican conven
tion. It may, pei haps, be accept
ed as proof that lie has laid aside
all further olitical aspirations. It
certainly establishes that he is no
longer in the hands of trainer-.
Tlie ether character, however, lic
cauic him far better. There wan,
beyond question, more power in it.
It is true that on most subjects
upon which he has Ixjen drawn
out General Grant h joke:i
well. 33ut no one, a year ago,
would have dreamed that lie would
be found giving utterance to tin;
loose talk which goes by the
name of 'gusll.,'
This was quite conspicuous iu a
late interview with President Gur
field, in which the General is repre
sented as sa"ing that the people 'if
China and Japan are '-turning in
their need to the United States."
The occasion of their distress was
stated to be the alleged ambitious
designs of Kussia and England.
They are described as rich and
fertile countries, "willing to pour
their wealth into our arms if we
only reach for it." This i only a
another version of the old "Orinus
and Ind" notion which has so long
kept such a powerful hold on the
imagination of so many people.
But modern statisticans have made
sad work of it. The nations, aud
especially China, have not any
wealth to pour into our arms.
The are very, poor countries.
The rates of wages run from five
to ten cents per day in prosperous
times. An energetic laboring man
in China in the course of a. year
or two might be able to save
enough to buy a Connecticut clock
for 03, but not much more can
be expected from him. He can
not afford to use our wheat or
bacon, drink our wine or wear
our clothes. If such luxuries were
within his reach at all, he would
raise or produce them himself.
The jiouriiig out of the wealth is
the other way. The balance of
trade, so far as China is concerned,
is always heavily against us. W e
sell more goods in the little Eng
lish colony of Hongkong than wc
do in the whole of China. The
English trade with China would
not amount to much if the Chinese
were not compelled to take in ex
change, at the point of the bay
onet, the drusr that is destrovinir'
them. The opium trade about
balances the tea. and silk trade.
But we are not in that business
The feeling among the Wash
ington department officials is one
of uncertainty. The quadrennial
attack of clerical shades is not con
fined to any particular bureau or
divlsiop, but permeates every de
partment. These who have been
for years employed in various posi
tions, who have escaped former re
movals, now feel that their situa
tions are by no means secure, and
are anxiously listening to every
rumor of change, eager to know
whether their friends who are
higher in official position arc to be
retained, and if not, to learn if the
coming man can be reached by
any one whom they happen to
know. There are two classes of
clerks who are particularly upon
the anxious bench. First, those
who, through democrats, have been
permitted, through leniency of re-
pubKcan cjiiefs to riimauv -u.olfice,5oa'K- - x..iYa.
and who have come" to consider
that their ositions were perma
nent. Second, those who were
carried away by the glitter and
enthusiasm immediately following
Gcnirral Hancock's nomination in
to declaring themselves in his
favor. These two classes are now
thoroughly convinced that Gener
al Garfield's administration will be
a decidedly stalwart one, and
hence their quaking. They have
cause to fear, for so far as the
new cabient ofiiccrs have express
ed themselves, it is evident that
they intend to give appointments
only to republicans so long as
members of "the party competent
to fill the Ksitiom can !e found.
