T. B. Cornwall, of Sun Francisco,
telegraphs that the steamer California
will come this voyage to Astoria,
where she will receive passengers and
freight from Portland. She will sail
from Astoria next Saturday, April
2d. On her next trip the steamer

Remember that on Saturday even
ing next the Espinosa concert company
will give one of their select concerts
at Liberty hall. This company has
the well deserved reputation of being
the best on the Pacific coast and we
trust that nothing will prevent them
from treating our citizens to one of
the best concerts they ever heard.
The interior papers are full of praises
of them and as our citizens are a
music loving people there is no doubt
that they will give their patronage.

We yesterday visited the pilot
schooner J. C. Cousins and were much
surprised to find a yacht not to be ex
celled for beauty on this coast. The
Cousins is a schooner of forty-nine
tons register and built as strong as
wood and metal combined would make
her. As a sailer her rival could be
found in but few waters. Her cabin
is large and commodious and finished
in exceedingly good style, resembling
that of modern elegantly finished
cabins on the finest steamships. The
fresco work on the ceiling of this cabin
alone cost five hundred dollars, which
chows that no expense was spared in
elegance. Every part of the vessel is
utilized in the best possible way mak
ing every convenience perfect.
Aboat one o'clock yesterday after
noon a severe and almost fatal
accident happened to a little daughter
of Mr. Geo. Hill in this city. The lit
tle girl, aged about five years, in com
pany with other playmates, was play
ing in front of the residence on
Chenamus street, when one of Mr. R.
B. Parker's teams passed by and the
children jumped on. The child acci
dently fell off the side about midway
between the two wheels, the hind
wheel of the heavy truck passing over
the girl about the waist. Dr. Severn
was immediately summoned and he
ascertained that some bones were
-broken, but thought tho child would
recover. Allowing small children to
ride on wagons is a practice that team
sters should abate. We have several
times before called attention to this
Improving the Bar.
The Oregonian of the 29th copies

who have suflictent uterer in the city

by the Oregonian will make himself

worthy example set by him.
