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.

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 tory," by F. G. Ruflin. Tho announcement is made that tho February number of the Reviaw, to be issued January 15th, will contain Part HI. of tho "Christian Religion" series of articles, and that it is to be a very able defence of tho Christian faith. "Wanted. 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 place..

It may be histoiy, it may be only a legem!, a. tradition. It may not have happened; but it could have happened.

It K said to be a perfect whispering- gallery, the slightest noise, such as the dropping of a pin or the rustle of n dress, being heard from one side to the other with startling dis tinctness. Old Gray. Old Gray, the big horse who was at ono time employed to haul the hose cart which is kept at the Corporation house, was genuinely enthusiastic in his business, fie was always on time. This charac teristic was encouraged by the lire boys. Old Gray was trained rog; uiarly every day, and lie soon came to know as much as anybody about what he ought to do. Hard work and rheumatism finally re tired old Grav to a furniture, w:s on. Three days after his retiie ment lie was in frbnt of Chime's auction store, ffitched to an express1 wagon loaded with furniture. All at once an alarm of fire was sound ed. Old Gray waited 'about the" length of timo lie thought it should take to hitch him to the lios cart, and then he started. The furni ture was scattered from one etui of the street to the other, but old Gray reached the fire before the opposition cart, and with a self satisfied air backed up to the hy drant. Next day he wiis returned to the department. Virginia City Enterprise. Death of Capt Metzger.

He was fifty-five years of age, and had followed the. sea from early life. Xearly all of his experience" has been as commander, and in this capacity his genial disposition, his skill as a mariner, and hi good judgment and prudence, made him exceedingly popular with the trav eling community, ab ell as among steamship companies, in 1-S.j." he brought the bark Kmily Miner around Cape Horn to San Fran cisco, after that was engaged in navigating on this coast, lie had several 'sailing vessels after the Emily Miner.
