AHOMAHCE.OF THE SEA.
The records of our law courts
are full of strange incidents, and
the history of insurance has con
tributed ver3r liberally to them;
but no stranger storj' has ever
been told than that which haa
cropped up now and again with
reference to the adventures of the
Ferret. This was a screw-steamer
which belonged to the Highland
railway company, and was char
tered'for a short cruise by an indi
vidual named Henderson. She
left Greenock on a short trip, and
vrent straight for Cardiff, whence
she proceeded to the Mediterra
nean without any reference to the
will and pleasure of her proper
owners. After passing through
the straits of Gibralter, she sud
denly changed her appearance.
Her cream-colored funnel assumed
a black hue, the color of her boats
was changed, her name was al
tered from the Ferret to the lieu
ton, and each of the crew had a
slip of paper handed to him with
a name and history upon it.
Every seaman was ordered to as
sume this name and this history, so
as to be thoroughly acquainted
with it, under penalty of having
his brains blown out. The ship's
papers were altered, and at San
tos, in Brazil, where she next ap
peared, she took in a cargo of 400
tons of coffee, and started for
Genoa. She then eccentrically
changed her course and turned up
at the Cape of Good Hope under
a new title, namely, the India,
and with the suppositious charac
ter of having cleared from Guayra,
in Brazil. This marvellous vessel
now suddenly appears at Mel
bourne, where the cargo is sold
for about 10,000, and it is with
the view of getting hold of some,
at least, of this money that sundry
actions have recently been brought
by the owners and consignees of
the cargo and ship as well as by
the insurers, who paid upon a to
tal loss, the Ferret, of course, be
ing missing.
Mr. Henderson seems to have
cleared about 2,000 worth by
the transaction in cash, but the
remainiug 8,000 were paid into
the bank to meet the sundry bills
which were also handed to him in
part payment for the sale of the
cargo of the Ferret alias the Ben
ton, anu more recently known as
the India. It was to attach this
sum of S,000 that actions have
been brought by the insurance
companies and the owners
and as regards 4,000 of the
amount they have been successful
1 he balance is hem over to ascer
tain whether the bills against
which this money was deposited
are held b' owners for bona fide
value or not. The disposition of
the money is, however, but a
prosaic proceeding compared with
the marvellous and kaleidoscopic
changes of this vessel. It is al
most incredible, that in an age
when the electric telegraph
practically unites all parts of the
world, a Ship can enter any
port in the world with false pa
pers. A vessel whicli arrives, say,
from Rio Janerio, must presuma-
havc left that place, and it is some
wnat surprising that the various
lists did not supply purchasers of
cargo of the India with the infor
mation that no such vessel of that
name had left the port of La
Guayra in Brazil. It is not im
probable, however, that the mere
audacity of the proceeding dis
armed suspicion. Here was a ship
with a valuable cargo on board
and with her papers apparently in
order, the captain of which was
prepared to hand over the said
cargo to any bona fide purchaser.
Hence, the contents of of the good
ship India were promptly sold,
and the money paid over with
equal promptitude to Mr. Hender
son. it is some satisfaction to
learn that this talented gentlemaM,
with two accomplices, is now un
dergoing penal servitude in Mel
bourne. The Highland Railroad
company will probably be more
careful in the future as to whom it
lends its steam packets on hire for
pleasure trips. The Flying
Dutchman of ancient days was
but a bungler as compared with
the modern Ferret, which belong
ed to that most prosaic of all un
dertakings a railway company.
Governor Newell returned from
a tour through the Pacific coast
country. He states that many
new coiners are settling on new
land in Pacific and Chchalis coun
ties, on the river bottoms and on
Shoalwater Bay and Gray's Har
bor Hats, and are very much en
couraged with the prospects. Oys
ters of superior quality are becom
ing abundant in Shoal water Bay.
Commerce is largely on the in
crease on the Chchalis river in
lumber and general merchandise.
Montesano is flourishing, new
buildings arc being constantly
erected, but restrained for want of
mechanics and lumber. Elma is
very prosperous. Fourteen new
buildings are under contract, in
addition to as many more recent ly
completed. The new saw mill of
Mr. Goodell runs with relays of
hands eighteen hours a day with
out intermission, with more orders
lun he can fill ahead. All people
look anxiously for railroad connec
tion between the Harbor and the
Sound. Tra nscrh .
"When Rev. P. S. Knight was
looking over some of his old pa
pers, he ran across the first Ore
gon Statesman ever printed. It
was dated and postmarked Oregon
City, O. T., March 2S 1351." It
was published weekly at 7 a year
br Asahel Bush, with the motto
"No favor sways us, no fear shall
awe." Rev. Knicht also found 1
among his papers a proclamation
of Governor Geo. L. Curry to in -
crease the army in the field by j
three companies of mounted .vol-
unteers expressly for service in i
Southern Orejron. This procla- j
mation was signed and sealed I
on the 11th day of March, liJoC.

Detroit is amused b' the decis
ion of a Justice respecting the
meaning of a statute which de
clares that all saloons shall be
closed on Sunday, and that "the
word 'closed' shall be construed to
apply to the back door as well as
to the front door." The .lustice
ruled that if the door was closed,
even if unlocked, then the letter
and spirit of the statute were un
broken. Thus, if an officer were
forced to turn the knob and use a
little exertion in opening the door,
the dealer was on the safe side of
the law.
"How delightful the country air j
is this morning,' remarked Miss i
Fitzjoy, as she stopped to the
threshhold and looked toward the :
rising sun.

of the house and began yelling at
the cows, and Miss Fitzjoy started
inside to take down her crimps so
as to look as pretty :is possible by
breakfast time.
The New York Sun has invent
ed a new war cry, viz: "Turn
the rascals out." The Commercial
Advertiser moves to amend by
naming the rascals who are to be
turned out, and also the patriots
who are to be put into their places.
Mr. Dana's paper has not yet
complied, and probably thinks
that to do so would take all the
snap out of the thing.
"Mine is a romarkable case,"
says Postmaster J. E. Bonsai 1 of
Liverpool, Pa. "At 15 years of
age, I was seized with a fear
ful attack of rheumatism which
lasted for twenty-five weeks, re
sisted medical treatment until my
physician said I would never get
well, and finally left me with my
system liable to frequent recurring!
attacks, in the winter oi lor.i-ou,
I was so used up with rheumatism
that I could scarcely walk from
my house to my office. "When I
was worst, I happened to hear of
that wonderful substance St. Ja
cobs Oil. 1 obtained a supply,
used the article as directed, and
was entirely cured. Its action in
my case was almost miraculous, as
I am now perfectly free from
rheumatism after being afflicted
with it for thirty-four years'."
The Fires.
In a conversation with one of
the largest loggers on the Sound,
the Transcript is considerably en
lightened in regard to the true in
wardness of forest fires. It is a
common thing for farmers to set
fires in the most reckless manner,
ostensibly for legitimate land
clearing. It has been ascertained
that some of the most mischievous
fires this season, involving the de
struction of property which can
only be estimated by thousands of
dollars, have spread from insignifi
cant fires kindled by ranchmen
for the purpose of clearing a po
tato patch, measuring a few square
rods, to rid themselves of a troub
lesome brush-heap, or' to reduce a
small slashing, the whole value of
which, many times duplicated,
would not pay a tenth part of the
loss incurred by some adjoining
logging camp into which such fires
had carelessly been suffered to run.
There is a law imposing a severe
penalty for willfully or carelesslly
setting fires in the woods during
the dry season. It is a poor com
fort, however, after a farmer's
crops or a logger's timber have
been destroyed to the amount of a
year's earnings, to find that the
dire conllagration started from the
log-heap of some rancher, who
owns nothing but a cabin and a
pair of blankets, or perhaps from
the camp fire of an irresponsible
tramp.
