The Army & Navy Journal hints
that Capt. John C. White, 1st Artil

case 1st Lt. G. R. Shaw, of that regi

Capt. White went before a retiring
board for examination some time ago,
but the matter is as yet indefinite.
From. Mr. Rob'L Carruthors who
recently returned from a trip to
Shoalwater bay, we learn that the
oyster beds are giving evidence of re

feared, a fact which it is a pleasure to
Tho editor of the Seattle Herald
in writing up an account of a supper
he attended a few nights ago, says
that "the viands consisted of Dry
Mum French claret, and Hensey
brandy." This is even worse than
poor old Jack Falstaff who was willing
that there should be one pennyworth
of bread to "such a monstrous deal of
Now that the white sailed ships that
spread theirj wings and fly to sea have
for a season ceased to lino our docks,
the more numeroui salmon fleet dot
the blue waters of our nob'c river.
Already the surface of the water is
covered with dancing boats each man
ed by a sturdy crew. In attendance
on these is a smaller fleet of busy
steam crafts, mostly Astoria built and
owned. This season we have the
A. Ji. Field, for Badollet & Co.; the
Edith tending to ihe boats of J. G.
Megler of Brookfield; the Argonaut
which looks out for the boats of J. YY
& V. Cook, of Clifton, and other
steamers hourly arriving and going.
The latest addition is tho Mountaineer,
lying at Flavels dock. She is a trim
little craft built on about the same
model as tho Argonaut but smaller.
She is about 75 feet long, and 1-i feet
breadth of beam, and registers 24.88
tons. She was built at llwaco by
Herbert Pcttit, had her machinery
put in at Portland, and will, during
tho fishing season run to tho Cape and

A Knapptou man troubled with
insomnia was told that he would be
cured by going to bed, closing his
eyes and picturing in his mind a flock
of sheep jumping a fence one at a time.
This experiment nearly made him in
sane. "I jumped about 2,000 over
the fence," he says, "and there were
aVout 1,000,000 left. Sleep! I'd
given $1,000 not to see those sheep
jump that fence. I could have gone

Tho steamer Eureka arrived in yes
terday from San Francisco with freight
for the Columbia river and points to
the north. She left San Fr&ncisco
last Monday. When 24 hours out one
of the oilers in the engine room named
B. A. Hurlburt, met with a dreadful
accident, having his left arm caught in
the machinery, one of the engine
valves sheering laterally across and
severing the limb just below the el
bow. The stump was bandagod up
and attended to as wall as possible.
Upon the arrival of the boat at this
port the injured man was conveyed to
St Mary's Hospital where the arm
was properly amputated, and dressed.

Building seems to bo the principal
thing going on. Every where are
piles of lumber and busy workers.
The aew building on the lot this side
of Ike Fosters will soon bo completed.
On the other side of the street three
new buildings havw lately been erect
ed, and. of course found immediate i
occupancy. Farther up the lumber is
being got out for a two story struc
ture that J. W. Hume is goiug to put
up opposite Barth & Meyers. Com

present site. On the south side of the
street Hiram Brown b putting up a
frame building to be occupied by I. J.
Arvold as a bout and shoe store. Just
west of Jackins & Parks, W. B. Head
ington is putting the finishing
touches to a building, tho property of
I. W. Case. This is built in a man
ner which seems to us is worthy of ob
servance wherever practicable. Th
building is put up in tho middle of
tho lot, leaving sufficient space on
each side to admit of a team being
driven around the promises. Should
a fire break out in the vicinity tho
convenience of having a place to sta
tion an engine constitutes no sm ill
part of tho desirability attached to
having plenty of room. This building
Hill bo occupied by Mrs. E. S. War
ren as a millinery establishment. On
tho corner the Odd Fellows' building
is in process of completion. It was
thought the hall would be finishod by
April 2Gth, and that that date, the
G4th anniversary of tho founding of the
order would be made the occasion of
a grand dedicatory ceremony on the
part of Beaver Lodge No. 35, but as
it was found, impracticable to complete
tho rooms in the stylo intended by
that time, tho idea was abandoned.
Messrs. Case and Megler were in
Portland a few days ago to see about
procuring suitable furnituro and Capt.
Reed went up yesterday afternoon on
tlm same errand. The trustees have
bids from Astoria, Portland and San
Francisco, the furnituro is to cost
about $3,000 to bo built with direct
reference to tho use for which it is in
tended, and will bo of the best materi
al and workmanship.
The lower floors have been let with
the exception of tho premises on Cass
street which is still in abeyance. The
second story front suite has been
rented by Dr. La Force, the other
suites will probably be occupied by
officer and for private families.
Suprenant & Ferguson have found
time enough from their other work to
put up a building south of the Odd
Fellows', which will, wo believe, be
divided into three suites of rooms and
used for office purposes. This brings
us up to Jefferson street. On the
corner of Main, L. Hartwig is putting
up a threo story building 25x40 for E.
C. Holdcn, and further up A. Mont
gomery is about to put up a dwelling
house. At the Parker House men
are busy patting on an addition which
will place the whole under one roof
and add additional accommodation to
that popular hotel. Opposite the
post office and on Coucomly street
below, are other buildings going up
which are already engaged at
prices which render their construction
