The Weather Yesterday.
At 2 yesterday morning hailstones as
large as pigeons' eggs fell with a dull
thud; at 3 came rain and a wind from
the west; at 4:30 more wind from the
west and rain; at 5:45 it rained; as the
struggling daylight disclosed lateral lines
of Blanting rain descending; at 8:30 the
sun shone out in all its winsome strength
and gladsome beauty; at 9, wind from
the same west drove flying scad before it;
had it driven it behind it dire results
might have ensued; at 10 heaw rain fell:
at 11 the rain continued to fall; at 21-30
darkness was upon the face of the deep
and the spirit of the storm moved over
tho land; at 12 tho sun again smiled upon
the sons and daughters of men; at 12:20
rain fell; at 12:40 hail fell; at 12-50 snow
fell; at 1 r. is. the glass began to fall; at
tr.vj mo nun leu aiso, anu noming oeing
done to stop the fall of these several con
stituents, tho falling process went on; at
2:15 the same perverse breeze from the
tumbling western main sprang up once
moro; at 3 a circling wreath of pogonip
swooped down from "Washington Terri
tory and enveloped this section of the
commonwealth in a gloom which lasted
till the lifting clouds showed a sunlit sky;
then it began to freeze; over the lull came
a storm cloud from tho folds of which
were shaken out great snowfiakes that
whitened the ground; this began to thaw,
and then hail began to fall, as did sever
al citizens who (unlike sinners) could
not stand on slippery places; at 4-20 the
rain began again: at 5:15 the clouds roll
ed off, the wind died down, tho stars
shone out, and in the west glowed an
aerial sea of gold and name: at JsJ; with
a clang came the hail again from the
Lord knows where, and after clattering
on the roofs and awnings till the frozen
reef in that particular cloud hnd been
straightened out, the rain began once
more. At midnight the stars twinkled in
the frosty air, and the wind was sighing
among tne nrs.

THE DEEP A5D IRA.FS RIVER COOXTP.r.
Br an Occasional Reporter.
I met Captain Raphael's Coyote last
Sunday off Stark's Point, and with the
aid of Lieutenant Shaw, boarded her.
Tho Coyote struck off to Gray's river, and
thus enabled me to pay a flying visit
to Jenkins ship-building establishment.
Here I saw a vessel whose lines of beauty
are remarkable for a Washington Terri
tory built vessel, on the stocks. A well
known Clyde ship-carpenter who acted as
my cicerone, informed mo that lie never
saw any yacht on the Clyde to equal this
new boat of Raphael's, to Imj launched in
a few days. The riccltcood will have to
look to tier laurels when this new duck
takes to her natural element.
It is a misfortune to a region, great or
small, to be written up too much; but
I think this section of country which is
naturally tributary to Astoria, lias not
been written up half enough. To any
person who is seeking to create n home
in i ue wiius, i uere is a grauu uppyriim
itv afforded in this section. If, however,
persons will delude themselves into ex
pecting paradise, or the gerdens of Hes-
E Brides, or the fountain of Ponce do
icon, they will probably bo mistaken in
this section. If the want the pleasures
of the cities, and be continually strag
gling for existence, as mere white slaves
to capitalists and monopolists of every
degree, shade and form, they had better
remain. All coming here to make a home
and fortune, both of which can now eas
ily be procured, should be prepared for a
life of onerg3 and economy, and aban
don any ideas of lht working of mira-
Jesiu their cases.
Grav's and Deen river. are health re
sorts in the trno hours of the term. The
observant tourist will naturally interest
himself in the growing industries or u
new country. Listen then to the story of
Captain Raphael of the Coyote as given
last Sunday an a sort of Sabbath sermon
on the deck of the steamer already allud
"I was engaged with a iwtrtuer to build
a first-class scow. I consulted my part
ner, who had been a sort of section Ixms
on a railroad, whether we would under
take the job or not, as I was then a mere
novice in the use of tools .and knew as
much about a scow as I do now about a
government mule. He aid we'd take the
contract, and take it we did. No two
pieces of board or timber on that cow
were alike or of tho same length.' Still,
wo put her together by patting our two
heads in consultation, and no scow that
ever snorted on the Columbia river was
equal to that ono that we two greenhorns
put together, for strength, solidity, and
swiiines?. iuoro anon.
Tha Loner ColnniMrt.
Steaming from Portland to Asforin, wo
passed over tho moat important part of
the Colombia, ho far as business is con
cerned. In the distance of a hundred
miles we met three or four stern-wheel
stoamera doing a local business, one largo
sailing ship from the Pacific, and here
and there a tug towing immense raits oi
ogs. On the shores saw mills are seen
at a considerable distance apart. Estab
lishments for canning salmon are numer
ous. A lew settlements mat may do
called villages, and two or three sprout
ing cities constitute the commercial
ports. Farming on the river flats and
m the sheltered coves is carried on indif
ferently. At ono jxnnt tbore is a large
saw-mill, to which logs aro brought on a
well-constructed uarrow-gaage railroad,
that extends three miles back into the
forest. Besides the abovo industries,
there are one or two dry docks, where
vessels for tho river are built and where
repairs aro done. The observations here
noted aro from tho deck of a steamboat,
and are not, therefore, a just estimate of
iifo in the Columbia valley. Beyond the
fringe of billows and over the cliffs that
guard the stream the country is yielding
sustenance and wealth m quantities com
mensurate with the demand. The for-

has brought to the cronud. but every

lumboring ludustrv for miles on either
side of tho Columbia is destined to be
exceedingly important. Corr. Xew York

Time was when in this land apprentices
in towns on river banks stipulated that
they should not have salmon of tener than
twice a week. Those days are forever
gone; for even if we should retrace our
steps and restore to their puritv the
streams we have polluted, our greater
population would speedily exnaust the
supply of returning salmon. As it is.
our home salmon nroduct is bv no means
inconsiderable; but it is a mile compar
ed to the vast quantities ot this hsh
that come to us from Pacific rivers at
prices that have made salmon once again

'Well. I hardlv like to mention any
other duck on the same day I have talk
ed alout the canvasback, but the sin I
hope will be forgiven me. Tho mallard
is a fine-looking duck, uncooked or serv
ed, but iho meat is rather too close grain
ed and dry. Tho leal, of course, is tho
duck for "broiling; tho widgeon servos to

All of these ducks aro cheap in tho
season. This year the ducks, especinuy
the canvasback, aro uncommonly fine,
owing to a favorable feeding season up
north. Tho canvasback feeds on tho
roots of the so-called wild calory, and is
the best diver for this kind of food, the
bulb of which alono it eats, after wrest
ing it from tho bottom by a long struggle
under water. The widgeon can't dive for
it whero the water is deep, but hangs
around on the surface and steals it from
the canvasback when it comes up with a
bulb in its bill, and before it recovers
from its strugglo under water. The can
vasback is a peaceful, patient and well
mannered bird, as a bird of such perfect
flavor should be, and instead of fighting
tho rascally widgeon, dives for another
root. I never eat widgeons out of respect
to the canvasbacks.
To change the subject, which I see has
become painful to you owing to iho mon-
tion of the misfortunes of the canvas
backs, isn't it a nitv we are not as well
off in the matter of ovsters as in ducks?
"That is an old, old and much disputed

They are an excel lent-liavored oyster,
but too small for manv dishes of which
oysters are the principal feature. For

the little native oysters are superior to

called tho ''eastern, are brought here in
small barrels by the car loads and dump

tain a fair size, but seem to lose most
of their flavor. The oystermen assert
that they don't propagate, bat I believe
under favorablo conditions they do, and
in fact, have, for a bed was found a few
