We have received a copy of the
Sunday edition of the'Brooklyn Eagle,
which whoops about its wonderful

wonderful in it. The San Francisco

Tho papers published on this coast
exhibit more enterprise right straight

Yesterday morning salmon fish
ing on the Columbia for the season of
83 began, and seldom has there been
better results for tho first haul than
that exhibited by the fishermen.
Twenty and twenty-five to a boat was
not uncommon, rind several caught
twice that number. Tho highest we
heard of authentically was tho score
of Peter Johns of the Columbia Can
ning company, who came rolling in on
tho morning tide with eighty-five of
the prettiest salmon that ever flopped
a farewell fin to tho foaming ocean.
The Grocers' Gazet fe,London,in its
issue of March 10th, says of the saml
on market: Several parcels of lale
importation Frazer and Skeena river
fish havo been disposed of, holders
having shown more disposition to
meet the views of buyers, and consid
ering the satisfactory quality of recent
arrivals, there is a fair prospect of the
whole catch going into consumption at
the present prices, provided the quali
ty of later shipments turn out as good
as tho present. Prices for Columbia
river are maintained, without any
thing of note passing.
A little past 10 o'clock yesterday
morning says the Standard, as the
Lurline was coming up to the Morri
son street dock she collided with the
Westport, which was lying at the
dock, and crushed one of the latter's
aide wheels. Both the Fleetwood ard
the Westport wore lying at the dock
&t the time, and the Fleetwood swung
out into the stream to allow the Lur
line to land between them, when by
some means the Lurline's bow veered
round and struck the Westport. As
the Westport's guards were down,
there was nothing to save tho wheel.
While the Lurline was passing the
railroad, ferry a few minutes before,
she was signaled to pass astern, bu t,
for soino reason, failed to respond or
take notice, and passed directly in
front, escaping a collision by only a
few feet. The Westport arrived down
all right yesterday afternoon.

The situation as regards crop pros
pects in California, is thus described
by the Monterey Demecrat: "It is a
comfort to know should the worst
come, and the season turn out abso
lutely dry, that there will be in this
state no famine prices for food sup
plies. There is fully a years stock of
wheat on hand, and were there not,
it is easy to replenish it from the
wheat fields cf the northwestern
states. Of barley it is estimated
there is enough to last through next
seeding season. It is also true that
the state is in better condition to en
dure the extremity of a dry season
than in any previous year. As to for
age for animals the outlook is not so
consoling. It is now certain that tho
wild grasses are short, and there
would be difficulty about water. Of
course hay can be imported. A very
little rain, however, would suffice to
pnt the grain crops in condition to be
cut for hay. We can stand a drouth,
without positive suffering, its most
disagreeable feature being tho forced
inaction to which it would reduce
mo3t of our population."
Last Saturday evening N. W. Over
ton, who was employed at Ross's
logging camp abovo Knappa, was
cleaning his rifle intending to start
out hunting the following morning,
and while bending over it threw the
chamber free, ouo of the cartridges in
some mysterious way exploded. The
charge went Btraight on, but the
powder blew up in his face seriously
burning him and injuriug his eyes.
He was brought to tho city 3'esterday
for medical treatment.

he sends out on the Columbia this

"Wlirjrins" GTcat Storm.
It seems as though the great storm
predicted by Wiggins, is going to strike
Astoria. During the last week, at least
seventeen young, good-looking, mar
riageable men have been at A. M. John
son's Crockery Store, inspecting their
stock and pricing crockery, with a view
of getting ready for housekeeping. If a
storm is not in transit towards Astoria,
a squall is, at least, and the young ladies
had better be prepared for it If they
will call at our store during the week,
our gentlemanly clerk will take pleas
ure in showing them the nico sets of
dishes, etc, that their young men have
already picked out Of course we don't
want you to give us away, as wc have
promised the young men not to let you
into the secret; but of course you will
want to see what kind of crockery you
are going to use, and as it is all here we
would like to have you inspect it Sev

they are going to do it is a question, but
they'll do it no doubt.
