jour hall at 10 A. si. to-day, to make ar
rangements regarding the funeral of our
deceased brother, Aaron Morton.

Liberty Hall To-Uight
If tho steamer Columbia should bo
detained here until this evening Mr.
Sheridan and his entire company will
appear again, by special request, at
Liberty Hall. We would suggest to
the management to present a varied
bill say the trial scene from Mer
chant of Venice; some recitations by
Mr. Sheridan, Mr. Simms nnd Miss
Holbrook, and conclude the pro
gramme with a roaring farce.
Changes on the Bar.
The Oregonian says that reports
come from shipmasters who have
crossed in and out lately that the
north channel shows evidences of
shoaling, and that the Columbia river
is forcing a considerable portion of its
current directly through tho inUdle
sands. If this bo true, the belief ex
pressed by prominent engineers that
the bar is assuming almost the exact
form it had in 1811, viz: one straight
channel midway between Cape Han
cock and Point Adams, direct to sea,
is well founded. Should surreys prove
that the middle sands are giving way,
it is likely that the U. S. engineer will
order the weakest spot scraped by the
same method tho present cut-off was
deepened last year. A gentleman who
has given to tho Columbia river bar
and its changes much study, tells an
Oregonian reporter that he would not
be surprised if the middle sands di
vided; the southern portion attaching
itself to Clatsop spit, which will run
almost west from Point Adams, and
the north sands being crowded over to
Peacock spit, which would run a little
south of west. He believes that a
dike built from Fort Stevens to the
sea while the river is iir tho throes of
this change would make this straight
Henry W. Elliott, writing from the
Smithsonian Institute concerning fruit
on this coast, says that the apples and
peare of Oregon, Washington territory
and lower British Columbia are sim
ple in their excellence and fine flavor
as good as our own; their plums,
apricots and nectarines superior to
ours, and equal to tho best Canadian
orchards; while the peach and the
grapo are not successful on their soil
and in their early October frosts.
With regard to cherries and small
fruits, I may say without reservation
that their quality on tho Pacific coast
is fnllyjcqual to our own in excellence.

says; "Senator Mitchell lias taken a

the Riggs House. He hopes for Mrs.
Mitchell's presence hers during a part

a formidable rival in her mind to tho
charms of Washington-society."
What are styled 'fpen portraits"
of Brewster, the newly appointed

him as being at once the' most fascin

an exaggeration. He is disfigured by
scars on his face, but not horribly so,
and is only mediocro in conversation,
but a smart lawyer.

The detention ot tho Columbia last
evening was matter of congratula
tion to our citizens who had an oppor
tunity of seeing Sheridan in his great j
character of Richelieu. That gentle
man having announced on Thursday
night that, in case of their detention
he and his company would appear
next evening. Tho play was most
enthusiastically received, and the
niatchloss impersonation of the wily
cardinal was fully lip to his best efforts,
supported as ho was so admirably by
his company. The transition from
the comedy and character sketches
of Thursday night to the great curse
scene was an index of his greit
histrionic powers. Should Sheridan
return he will be assured of a hearty
reception from thoso whom he delight
ed during his brief stay with us.
In :i paper recently read at tho
Medical Society of Victoria, Dr.
Day stated that, haling for many
years regarded diphtheria, in pa early
stage, as a purely local affection, char
acterized by a marked tendency to
take on putrefactive" decomposition,
he has trusted most to the freo and
constant application of antiseptics,
and, when their employment has been
adopted from the first, and been com
bined with judicious alimentation, he
has seldom seen blood poisoning en
sue. In consequence of tho great
power which salt possesses in prevent
ing tho putrefactive decomposition of
meat and other organic matter, Dr.
Day has often prescribed for patients
living far away from medical aid tho
frequent use of a gargle composed of
a tablespoonf nl or more of salt dissolv
H " tumbler of water, giving chil-
dren who cannot garglo a teaspooful

In Mayor Thompson's message to
tho Portland eouucil last Wednesday
"'. 1-e said, refening to navigation,
the experience of the past year has
demonstrated beyond I'tication, the
necessity of the city of Portland rais
ing means by taxation for improve
ment of tho navigation of tho Wil
lamette in front of and below the city
to its mouth, h as to make tho river
navigable for tho largest sea-going
vessels that can enter tho Columbia
1 feel sure there is no difference of
opinion on this subject.
Fn order to
carry out thisovork a tax should be
levied on ail the taxable property of
the city, of not le?s than three milk
for this pintpose. This utll ftcnro a
fund of more than tliiity thousand
($30,000) dollars, which is tnriisient to
build a first class dredge of the latest
approved pattern, with
everything complete, machinery, scows
ed., and sufficient funds to operate
the s.ime during the winking season of
tho year. I cannot too urgently call
your attention to this matter, as ou its
success very much depends the future
growth and prosperity of the eity.
This appropriation .should be made at
as early a day as possible, so flint
everything will be ready for work as
soon as tho low water season r.irivcs.
It is true the city charter only autov
izes the exjenditiire of money to im
prove tho navigation of the Willamette
river, but I feel sure the most strict
constructionist would nut object to
the use of the city dredge in the Civ
lunibia if it becomes necessary to use
it there to secme a deep ship channel
It is hoped the general Government
will undertake this work; but uc initial
