The Portland papers are having their
customary spasm concerning Astoria
sailor boarding houses. The head and
front of their offending is that they are
not located at Portland.
"Would-be citizens are daily forswear
ing allegiance to any foreign prince or
potentate, and declaring adherence to the
laws of the United States. For its size
Astoria furnishes about as many annual
naturalizations as any city iu the Union.

Sax FnAN'cisoo FnEionrs. To show
tho anomalous condition of the wheat
export movemeut,"it is only necessary to
say that though we are in the midst of
an active season of the year, thero have
been only two ship charters written for a
full week. These were wooden vessels
which accepted the equivalent of 32s Gd
direct to Liverpool. Five iron ships have
come in during tho week that were char
tered months ago at 55.57s Gd and GOs.
three of them at tho last named figure.
One of theso was subsequently recharter-
od before arrival at 4.0s, -which is as
much as any vessel now m port could get
to-day. Many thousands of dollars
have been lost in the past four or five
months on charters made prior to arrival
Of the forty-five vessels now in port un
der engagement for wheat, 1G were char
tered before arrival at from 15s to 203
more than they could'got to-day. This
proportion of vessels engaged prior to ar
rival has been about the same all
through the season. One of the vessels
now in port has a charter of C2s Gd.
The bitter experience this year will re
tract on tho tonnage market next year.
A New York newffpapor man recently
sauntered down the wharf of the Canard
Lino. The big steamer had beou report
ed early on tho previous evening, and her
mail bad been distributed throughout
the city. The reporter expected to find
the ship snugly docked and the passen
gers disembarfdng at the hourof 10 a. ai.,
but such was not the case. At the end of
the wharf was lying a ubiquitous steam
boat met at steamboat arrivals, depar
tures, regattas, excursions, fires, wrecks,
etc. In the pilot-house that he had filled
for nearly fourteen years sat Capt. J. G.
Emmons" nnd hini the reporter accosted :
"Where is the steamer?"
"Outside the bar."
'Why is she not in?"
"The tide was too low when she ar
rived there, and when it rose the fog shut
'But her mail is up?"
"Oh, yes; we brought it from near the
light-house nnd landed it here at 0 o'clock
And then the captain explained that
the European mail was brought to town
and pluced in the hands of readers while
yet the steamer that brought it was far
out at sea.
'When a steamer is due,' said the cap
tain, "we are ordered to be at the wiiarf
of the company, to which the telegraph
report from Fire Island or Sandy Hook is
immediately sent. Wc must have steam
up and the crew on board whou lying for
a steamer at night, as the competition is
so great between the fast mail lines that
they will brook no delay. So you eo that
I am virtually a prisoner liere inuch of my
'Wc start immediately, no matter what
the weather ice, suow. gales, fog we
must at least make an attempt. But" we
seldom fail to get the mail up ahead of
the steamer if the telegraph gives us
prompt notice of arrival. They do not
always do this, however.
'Our first stop is at the lmrge office,
where wo take on board an officer of
customs, fo sco that nothing but mail is
taken from the ship. Then we make all
haste toward the ship, meeting her at
quarantine or beyond the bar, as tho
case may be. If a gale is blowing we
take lite windward shore for smooth
water. If the ice is running we try to
avoid it: if we cannot get around it we
crash through it. I was once about two
houw getting from the battery to the
Cunard dock with the mail on board. If
it is foggy we proceed at half speed by
compass, sounding the whistle frequent
ly, listening for bolls, horns and whis
tles, occasionally using the lead. I had
queer experience once in the fog. I tow
ed a vessel to ea safely and left her off
'We then groped our way back to tho
hook, and steered for a steamer's anchor-
bell in the lower bay. It proved to be
the Parlhia, for wliich we were to wait
that nieht. The officers thought we
came down to look for them, and con-
ratulated us upon our skill in a fog.
We put the mail on board, and found
our way to the .ity before the fog lifted.
But sometimes we go to quarantine or
sea on a taise report, occasionally we
una tuo steamer agrounu or cusauieu
hen wo reach her, and so aro able to
render immediate assistance. Yes, we
frequently take the mail outside in a
heavy sea. I never lost a bag of mail
'After the mail is all on board and
nafely stowed away out of the wet, we
take an olhcer ot the steamer on uoara
and make all haste for tho city. The
mails are taken ashore and loaded in
huce trucks and rattled away to the
post office. We have had as many as 800
bags at once. The ordinary number
now is oOO or -109 bags .When 1 first went
into the mail business in the George
jlirkuel;, twenty years ago, there was not
so lame a" "numbor. Then tho
steamer would anchor in the stream, fire
a gun. and we would go for her. We
would take the doxen lmgs or more to tho
old barge office, throw them into an -express
wagon, and, if no horses were ready,
run them to tho post office ourselves.
The Australian and New Zealand mails
usually double the quantity of bags.
bometimcs we take these mails out to a
steamer bound for Europe.

steamers awaiting the arrival of the
overland train from Snn Francisco. The
post office officials are anxious to make

No Fatted Calf This Time. When C.
H. Bailey absconded sometime go he
told his creditors and his employer whose
money he had stolen that he had 1,000
in Stockton, Cal.. and that his father and
brother in San Francisco, would make
everything all right. His father and
brother now say, each for himself, that
enough has bceii already done for the
young man. A reciuisition for his arrest
was received from Salem last evening,
and the probabilities are that if all the
charges against him aro true he will tarry
in uregon at me puunc expense.

Otsteu Business. Over at Shonlwater
Bay tho oysteriug business, at which
little has been done during the past seven
years, is again assuming a - business-like
appearance. About seven or eight years
ago the oysters began dying, owing to the
freshwater being backed up too high.
Before that-thc oysters were splendid and
there were schooners plvmg between
tjuuuiwuiei -uav iuiu oaii j: nmuutcu car-
rying thousands of socks of oysters iu a
very buorc time, as iney oniy were 10 us
tongou anu f ortea. sacked and shinned.
But for some time past they have been
taken from the natural beds, culled and
transplanted. Alter a little time thev
fatten, and are longed again, culled and
shipped. There is not cs much profit in
oysters now as when they could be taken
so easily, but tho business bids fair to re
vive. The Miles has brounht over an
immense quantity this season, most of

A prominent citizen of Bagdad who
was a candidate for a certain political
office, was badly beaten at the polls by
one whom we will designate as Brown.
The next day tho defeated candidate
strolled into a saloon where he owed a
considerable bill, nnd with an air of
deep dejection, called for a toddy. After
drinking it he remarked to the barkeeper,
"Don't you feel sorry that I was defeat
ed vesterdav?" "Not a blamed bit." re-
Slied the vivacious saloon-keeper. "But,
on't you see, if I had been elected I
could have paid you my bar bill, but now
les, that s all right enough,' said tho
saloon-keeper, "but if you had been
elected Brown would have been defeated.
and Brown owes mo twice asbigabar bill

be true? Alas, loo late I have discovered
tho secret of Brown's popularity! Ho
probably owes all the saloons and every-

to get their pay. Give mo another toddy,
