One of the answers as to why it is
that upper town grows past Astoria

A hard case jumped overboard
from a vessel in Bakers bay, intending

Death of Capt FennelL
A dispatch from Newport via Oor
vallis April 9th, informs us that Capt
Ponnell, of the govomncnt tug Gener
al H. G. Wright, and three men were
capsized on the Yaquiun bar in, a small
boat while attempting to enter the baj
One man was saved, and the captain's
body was soon aftor recovered.
Wright arrived off Yaquina bay at 7
a. m. on the sevonth. About 11 a. m.
Captain Pennell, with three men in a
small beat, left the tug apparently to
find a channel. There was a strong
ebb tide and the bar was rough. The
boat was capsized on the bar. and
Captain Pennell and seamen Maginms
and Wannermark were drowned. The
third man was saved by two Indians.
Captain PenneH's body was recovered
in tlie afternoon. The Gen. Wright
crossed the bar safoly at G r. M. The
tug Gen. Wright was purchased by
Col. Gillespie for the government on
the 20th f March, in San Francisco.
Capt Pennell was given command and
proceeded by special orders to Astoria
direct. She loaded with provisions
and materials and sailed for Yaquina
bay on Monday, April 4th. Nothing
more was hoard of the tug until tlm
above news was rccoivod. The light
house tender Shubrick crossed the bar

Father Powers came very norr
mooting with a disaster on the road
way day before j'estorday, similar to
the one which caused the death of his
horse last year. Both were occasioned
by Chinese carrying dead, hogs on a

cil to adopt an ordinance pnvidin
that the dead carcases of animals
must be hauled, and not carried
through the streets. Let it be done
to-night, gentlemen of the council.
Printed circulars from the special

Mr. S. Hauxhurst of Tillamook,
has placed upon our table a bound
copy of the first volume of The West
ern Journal, published in St Louis in
1848 by Tarver and Risk. As a relic
of other da3's it is good, and for pur
poses of comparison with the present
condition of this coast, to which it
frequently alludes, is valuable. The
commerce and navigation of the Mis
sissippi river and its tributaries forms
the topic for an interesting article in
the March number. In the July num
ber a railroad from the Atlantic to the
Pacific is discussed. In November
the editor was trying to solve the
questien: Where shall we find a mar
ket for our surplus grain.
Considerable discussion has taken
place recently in Portland on the sub.
ject of liquor in the engine houses.
An ordinance was introduced at the
last meeting of the council providing
that if any person shall take into,
cause to be taken into, or in any man
ner use or drink in any engine house
or hook and ladder house in the city
of Portland, any spirituous or malt
liquors; save at public entertainments
which shall not bo held oftner than
once in each three months in any one
house; he or they shall be guilty of a
misdemeanor, and upon conviction
thereof before the police judge shall
be fined not less than ten dollars nor
more than twenty-five dollars.

The Astoriax didn't make any charg

nothing, and denies nothing, but the
dear little girls and boys got mad, and
say its a sin and a shame, because they
had o give it up. But what do they
know What does dear Mabel know
about "poker?" What does Pat know
about Philomath college? I am quite
sure that the charming Pnncess Win
