Messrs. Wood & Co., of the
South Bend mills, inform us that
there is a serious complaint in conse
quence of the poglect of the Light
house district to place buoys at the
entrance to Shoalwater bay. The
matter was referred to Capt. Reiter a
long time ago, but up to date nothing
has been done, and through this neg
lect it is asserted that ship owners
contemplate drawing their vessels off
the Shoalwater bay trade, which will
render hardship to the people living
there. A petition is being prepared
to properly represent the case to
authorities in Washington.

It will be seen by the following note
from a St. Louis paper that an east

A paper by R, W. Emerson, on
his personal impressions of Thomas
Carlyle, made up from his unpublish
ed letters written at the time of his
first visit to Ennland, will appear in

Emerson and the Massachusetts his
torical society, before which the paper
was read, and m the minutos of which
it is to be printed after its appearance
The New York Maritime Register,
in its issue of March 23d, heads its
editorial column with the follewing:
"It is to be hoped that no delay will
occur in making the necessary im
provements at the bar of the Colum
bia liver, Oregon. The river is the
outlot for a rich aud fertile country,
as the trades of Portland aud Astoria
well demonstrate. The suggestions of
the board of trade of these cities con
cerning the navigation of the Colum
bia river should receive much con
sideration at Washington. Columbia
river and Puget sound are rising in
commercial importance, and with im
provements in the navigation of the
river and the completion of the North
ern Pacific railway to the sound, trade
on the Pacific coast in the neighbor
hood of these places will increase
James R. Osgood & Co., the
popular Boston publishers, have placed
upon our table Mrs. Burnett's latest
novel, A Fair Barbarian, in which
the author seems likely to eclipse,
at least as far" as popularity is con
cerned, all her earlier triumphs. The
title of the story is in itself a most
happy conception. The Fair Bar
barian is a young American lady who
has lived in Nevada, and who comes
upon an English country town, with)
xne sucgesuve name ot Slowbndge, to
astonish its inhabitants by an indi
viduality of character wholly unique.
The morit.of the novel is largely in its
admirable purpose and the exquisite
skill with which it is carried out It
is a refreshing vindication of the
American girl, whom it has been too
much the custom of writers to de
preciate of late. Mrs. Burnett knows
her well and does her ample justice.
She "knows England, too, and we have
the benefit of that knowledge in the
types of English character presented.
The Literary Revolution will issue
immediately a beautiful Acme edition,
olegant cloth binding, of the jRomiins
cencos of Thomas Carlyle, price thirty
cents, postage six cents, and it can be
had of the nearly 2,000 booksellers
who are agents of the Literary Revo
lution in all parts of the United States.
Thomas Carlyle, more than any other
man of the nineteenth century, taught
the American public, and people of
good sense throughout the world, to
despise pretense and humbug, wheth
er exhibited by monarch or menial.
Sensible people who want a good book
at an honest price will buy it where
they find it. There is in tins country
no law which gives to a foreign author,
as it gives to an American, tee right
of the monopoly of the publication of
his book. If publishers choose to pay
a foreign author anything, they can
do i only as a donation, because he
can give them in return no protection
from cotnjHJtition. Readers have the
privilege of making such donation, if
they choose to do so without paying it
to the publishers aud trusting to the
possibility of their paying it to the
author for them. There is no dona
tion included in the price above
named. Readers who want to com
bine a possible donation, and a posi
tive price, can get an edition of this
same book from other publishers at
from two to eight times the price.

- A civil ongineer was running and
locating the lines of a lot of laud be
low the city of Augusta. Georgia,
and used as assistance a deed to the
property drawn 120 years ago. In
one section of that deed it was record
ed that the line touched a ceitain
point where stands an oid beach tree,
and upon which a cross mark had Wen
made with an ax. The ongineer ran
this line to an old bench tree, and,
concluding this wa9 the point in ques
tion looked for the mark but of course
could not find it. Taking an ax he
cut into the tree at a point he thought
the murk might be, and to his surprise,
after cutting into the tree, he chip
ped out a block and there was the
identical jnark referred to in the
ancient document. The mark was
perfect, but had been covered up. At
that time this was a British colony,
and some years before the Revolution
