The steamships Columbia and Ore
gon wero delayed outside tho entrance
to San Francisco many hours by a
densa fog overhanging Golden Gate.
That however is not considered wor
thy of mention by San Francisco
papers. Just let a steamer or sailing
vessel be detained by fog at Columbia
gateway, and the fact is heralded as
one of the-great dangers of Columbia
bar. While all the misrepresentations
and injustice heaped by Californians
upon the Gateway, the statu aud
people, we have grown to be their ri
vals and are rapidly leaving their
sun-baked clime far in our wake. We
are so situated now as to smile at

The leading article in the North
American Review for January, con-,
tains the judgments of rHe nf tho'
most distinguished American anthoii- j
ties open '"The Moral Responsibility
of the Insane." Jnst at piesent this j
subject occupies n vcrv nromineiit
place in the minds of tho American ,
people; but-quite apart from its mo
mentary interest, as connected with
tho extraordinary trial now in pro
gress in Washington, the problem of
determining the fact of insanity, and
fixing the limits of responsibility of
the insano, is oho that in itself pos
sesses an irresistible attraction for
every generous mind. ' The wreck and
ruin of intellect appenls at once to our
highest sympathies, and to whatever
is noblest in human cmiosity. The
authors selected for the discussion of
this subject arc, Drs. Beard and
SeguinP New York, Dr. Elwell, of
Cleveland, Dr. Jewell, of Chicago, nnd
Dr. Folsom, of Boston. The other
articles in the January number of tho
Review are as follews: "The New
Political .Machine," by Win. Martin
Dickson; "Shall Wiomeii Practice
Medicine?" by Dr. Mary Putnam
Jacobi; "Tho Geneva Award and tho
Insurance Companies," by (5. B. Colo;
and "A Chapter of Confederate His

While sitting in Liberty lull last
Friday evening enjoying the match
less acting of Sheridan as tho wily
cardinal, v. e thought how much more
enjoyable that acting could be mado
had the actor better accessories; a
better stage, auditorium, scenery,
lights, etc. One of the wants of As
toria is a good theater. It needn't
be very largo, nor very elaborate; but
should be comfortable, and better
adapted to the requirements and
actual necessities of theatrical com
panies than the present one is. We
all like to seo good acting and cele
brated actors; we would all have a
much better opportunity if there were
an attractive theatre here. "But a
new theater would cost a good deal of
money," vcry true; it would also
make a good deal of money for its
owners. No manager would give this
city the go by, nor object to paying a
good price if he knew there was a
theater here that was first class in its
appointments. The question "Will
it pay 1" easily admits of a answer in
tho affirmative. A. building such as
we speak of would cost i?8,000 or
10,000. It would pay ten per cent,
on the investment, would be an orna
ment to the city, and would tend, in
directly, as all new buildings do in
any place, to make Astoria more at
tractive and dcsirablo as an abiding

Old Gray, the big horse who

the hose cart which is kept at the
Corporation house, was genuinely
enthusiastic in his business, fie

length of timo lie thought it should
take to hitch him to the lios cart,

nia, after A lingering illness.. He
was fifty-five years of age, and had
followed the. sea from early life.
Xearly all of his experience" has
