"The ITorthicest" for March is
received. The compiler does not seem

has a map of the Northwest, in which
the name of ASTORIA is conspicuous
by reason of its not appearing.
Tho March moon fills on tho 23d
at 1:20 o'clock in the evening. The
full March moon plays an important
part in the affairs of men. For as
she fills three days after the vernal
equinox, she determines, in accord
ance -with tho law, that Easter shall
fall -on the following Sunday, the 25th,
and Easter in turn determines the
movable feasts and fasts of the church.
The short time intervening between
the vernal equinox and the full of the
moon brings Easter this "year within
three days of the earliest date the
festival can occur. In 1818 Easter
fell on the 22d of March, tho earliest
date possible. Such will not be the
case again either in this or the fol
Oregon Fir Going East
The immense amount of agricultural
implements imported into this coun
try from eastern states is something
phenomenal. It seems as though their
manufacture would pay here. Ves
sels discharge thousands of tons of
plows, threshing machines, fanning
mills, hoes, rakes, pitchforks, churns,
etc, stowed away in Xew York aud
Philadelphia and carried around the
Horn. We are doubty impressed with
this fact on being told that there is a
company now organizing who propose
to cut Oregon fir and send it to Ohio
factories to make up wood fittings for
agricultural implements: the fact that
good second growth oak and hickory
are becoming scarce impels them to
this, aud eastern manufacturers have
demonstrated by experiment that Ore
goM fir will make excellent fittings for
Implements of farm use. If it pays
to carry Oregon fir from the Columbia
it will surely pay when this country
fills up to make the castings, the steel
and iron works here, and thus make
the entire machinery on the Columbia.
Columbia City seems to be having a
little boom of its own. The following
paragraphs are from the Celumbian:
The N. P. R. R. are surveying tip
the opposite side of the Columbia
to Maxwell's Point opposite Columbia
The 2s'. P. R. R, has commenced
operations at Columbia City. They
have surveyed out the streets etc., of
About 1,200 worth of lots were
sold at Columbia City on Wednesday.
A Mr. Pinkney was one of the pur
chasers. D. G. Caples and Hezekiah Caples
sold last Saturday $1,800 worth of
lots in Columbia City.
"Tho Drunkard's Bride" was the
name of a cleverly rendered recitation
by little Kdith Conn at tho Baptist
church laRt Sun iay evening.
Attention is directed to the
adv. of Wm. Plunder & Co.'s Oregon
Blood Purifier. It is emphatically an
Oregon production, is compounded
with skill, and deserves considera
tion. At the regular, meeting of the
Astoria 'Longshoremen and Rigger's
Association held at their rooms last
evening, it was resolved that from
date none but Astoria 'Longshoremen
should be employed on vessels load
ing or unloading below Walker's
Island. See notice.
J. E. Mayo, the contractor
the Odd Fellows' building now in
process of completion, is also building
a brick structure for tho Astoria Gas
Light company. Last Saturday he
signed a contract for a similar build
ing in East Portland for the gas com
pany lately organized in that place.
The-Geo. W. Hume sawmill re
cently bought by Dr. Kinney will be
turned over to its new proprietor on
April 1st. It will be run on its pres
ent site for this season. A new mill
will bo built on the water frontage
abovo the city, recently purchased by
Dr. Kinney, next year, when the
present mill will be removed.
Last Sunday morning a crowd of
Chinese passengers were stopped at
Morrison street wharf, Portland, on
their way to the Fleetwood, for non
payment of poll-tax. Captain Scott
insisted that the official had no right
to attempt collection of poll-tax on
Sunday, and the matter ended by the
heathens filing onboard to the num
ber of thirty.
The Boston Post believes that the
idea of having state capitols in largo
cities is all wron. "Have 'em in
small towns," the Post says, "where
the hotels are bad, variety shows
scarce and the girls homely. Then
you get Bhort sessions and quick ad
journments." Should those ideas
prevail we need never expect to have
the state capital in Astoria.
Now that the building of brick
stores has become a settled fact tho
establishment of a brick yard is in or
der. We have splendid brick clay in
the vicinitj', at Fort Clatsop, and
elsewhere, and, in connection with the
brick yard, pottery works could be
made a profitable industry, the best
quality of clay being now shipped to
Portland from here for that purpose.

History Repeating Itself.
The Albany Herald says that the
spring of 1883 is similar in mair re
spects to the spring of 18G1. In 1861
it cleared tip the last of January and
tho month of February and two
weeks of March were in all respects
like the month of March 1883, thus
far. Six weeks of beautiful weather
at that time smiled upon the earth,
without rain. Fanners finished seed
ing, the roads presented a hard aud
dusty surface, vegetation advanced
rapidby, and about the middle of
March it commenced raining, and for
five weeks it came down steadily with
scarcely any interval. The mud be
came knee deep again, but the rains
were warm aud grain and all kinds of
vegetation grew without interruption
and the crops were never excelled for
quantity and yield. If the grain
crop of 1801 repeats itself in 1883, we
shall have good times next fall.
The chamber of commerce held
its regular monthly meeting last even
ing. Communications were read from
Spencer F. Baird, U. S. Fish com
mission, and Hon, Clarence A. Sew
ard, of New York. Documents were
received from our state congressional
delegations. After the transaction of
some minor business tho meeting ad
journed. A. W. Berry's establishment at
Ranier is now in operation and is
turning out a fine article of smoked
smelt. From actual experience wo
can say that the smelt thus prepared
are of a fine flavor, and we have no
doubt that when introduced on the
market the demand will be fully up to
the supply. Tho smelt are put
through a smoking and curing
process, then packed in air tight
canB Holding trom eighteen to
twenty-two smelt, and two dozen
of these cans constitute a case. The
smelt thus prepared are juicy and of a
delicate flavor; thejr more resemble

BED-HIDDEN AND CLUED.
W. E. HunsTis, of Emporia. Kan
sas, says that his wife had been sick
nearly seven years, and for the last
four months bed-ridden. She has been
treated by a number of physicians and
only grew worse. Her attention was
called to Dr. Pierce's "Golden Medi
cal Discovery" and "Favorite Pre
scription," which she commenced us
ing. In one week she could sit up, and
in three weeks could walk about. By
tnst Evciiiujr's Entertainment
The Luproil combination appeared at
Liberty Mail lastevenimr in one of their
entertainments such as they have ren
dered in Portland, during their six
weeks engagement in that city. A fair
house greeted the troupe, and the audi
ence was evidently pleased with the
several acts. The Moore sisters re
ceived an encore which was cheerfully
responded to, after which Harry Tyler
and his eight trained dogs entertained
the audience. Joe Carter as a clog
dancer is hard to beat, and in character
impersonation John Irwin made a hit
The feature of the evening in our esti
mation was the trapeze act of the Lu
proils, Pauline and George. They are
artistes in their profession aud should be
seen. "The School for Scandal" closed
the performance. It will be repeated
this evening, aud those of our readers
who want an entertaining evening
should surely go; there will be an en
tire change of programme.
