The regular quur terry examination of teachers will be held at Supt. Sloop's office next Friday and Saturday, the 28th and 23th inst. Christmas trees are being planted in various families. Their growth is mar velous, and the fruit decidedly acceptable to old and young. Evory newspaper in the country has given descriptions of the gorgeous sun sets. It is now in order to write up the equally magnificent sunrises. By general request there will bo a moo'ting of the citizens committee at the city hall at eight o'clock this evi-ning. A full Kttendence is desired. At 2 o'clock this afternoon, in front of Johansen's store, in upper Astoria, 12.

The sporadic cases of typhoid and scarlet fever that were unpleasantly com mon a few weelw ago, have almost totally disappeared, and the general health of the city is good. Messrs. E. J.

"When the portals of the temple of jus tice were yesterday thrown open, a charge of assault and battery was pre ferred against Jasper Peterson by his ox-step-fathor, whose brow had been bat tered by Jasper. It appears that the assaulted party though divorced from Mrs. Peterson annoys the family by coming nroutid, and objections thereto resulted in the assault by Ja3per, who naturally took his mother's part. Ho was fined 2T, but it is probable that the lino will bo partially remitted. BtraiED TucAsunn. A family from Mis souri recently settled in Chohalis. One of them, a boy of twelve years, was taken seriously ill. Last week ho disclosed the fact that two years ago ho accidentally discovered at their Missouri home a ket tle containing forty nine large gold pieces and n quantitj' of silver and old rotten notes. Ho had kept his discovery a secret, returning the kettle to the hid ing place. It seems the boy, with unusual foresight, was bearding the treasure up for future use and could not help casting out vague hints that he knew where ho could get all tho money he wanted when ne was a man, mnts to which no impor tance was attached at the time, but which now confirm the boy's story. Tho boy's iiiness nas taiccn a lavorable turn and his recovery is only a matter of time, when his father will return with him to Miasouri and unearth the buried treasure. Gkacc CnuEcu School. The school room of Grace Church Parish school was the scene of a pleasant entertainment yesterday afternoon, furnished hy the pupils of tho school, and witnessed by a largo number of visitors. The exercises were a portion of the regular school work recitations, calisthenics, music, etc., and singing of Christmas carols; a noticnnbla fenturfl toir tho rfwit ninn in concert of some good, old maxims whose juuuuuu lii cu-yuu inu ure 01 practi cal benefit. This portion of the enter tainment closed with the apt quotation from Longfellow: "Let us then be up and doing. With a heart for any fate. Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait.'p Tho school is in a flourishing condition and is in good hands. It will reopen on jionuay, January v, losu Oil and Vikegak. "What I don't like,' said the steady boarder at tho din ner table yesterday, "is to order tender loin stake and get something else. Now, when I was runnine a restaurant in Port' laud n few years ago I made quite a ref utation for tender meat, audi don't mind telling you in confidence how I fixed things. You see there's only a few pounds of tenderloin steak in the whole beef, and you can't give everyone that calls for it a genuine tenderloin without crowding matters a little. I used to get common sound steak and pickle it over nieht in oil and vinegar. That softens the fibres and mates the meat tender, when tho moat is proporh tooked vou can't tell tho difference, and if tho cook understands hov to trim and serve it, and you look out xo Keep your Knives ground fiharp, you can bet on havine tenderloin steaks xlht along, and half of 'em can't tell tho difference. Will I have a cigar? "Well, l fiaoaitt oiusu tonesitate." Fer a Neat Fitting; Beet Or Shoe, go to P. J. Goodmans, on Che- iiuMjus street, next aoor io x. w. ijase.

The common council of the city of As toria held a special meeting last evening. Present, Mayor Halm, Councilmen Case, Cooper, Johns, Hume and Trenchard. Mr. Case suggested that the council proceed to the election of a councilman to fill the vacancy occurring by the re moval of Councilman Carruthers from the First ward. A communication from the citizens of the First ward, recommending M. J. Kin ney for councilman, was read. Mr. Trenchard nominated Mr. M. J. Kinney and he was elected by a unanimous vote. The following bills were presonted and ordered paid: Mrs. P. Qmnn, 25.20; I. W. Case, 4-r0: Jackins fc Parks. .$t2-'K); A. V. Allen. $2.20; Thof. Logan, $7f: G. F. Parker, $100. The bills of judges and clerks of elec tion and special poKce wero also ordered paid. Bill for drawing map of the cemetery for $100, was brought up by Councilman Trenchard, who stated that the contract for the man was SIS, if the drawer did tho surveying, otherwise $2S, and he could not understand how the bill should be $100, when tho committee had made no such bargain, and bo recommended that the bill be re-referred to the committee on public property. Mayor Halm stated that this was tho proper course, as tho council had no use for $15 worth of map, and it wouldn't do to slice off that amount. Councilman Johns stated that he had been over the cemetery grounds, and a person looking at the grounds in their present condition and the map would be unable to recognize it. lhe proposition made by the Columbia Water Comnauv whs next broucht no: tliere being no communication in writing, themayor stated that if the committee desired to confer with Mr. Thompson or their agent, there being no proposition before the council from that company iue council couiu not consider it. Tho matter of the suspension of Thos. Hunter was next brought up. A commu nication from Clark Loughrey to the effect that he suspended Mr. Hunter, as there was no more work to do outsido of what he and tho two officers could attend to, was read. Ihe mayor stated that the chief of po lice had no power to suspend an officer except for the causes mentioned in the charter, neglect of duty, etc. On iuo tion the matter was referred to tho com mittee on health and police. Tho following ordinances were passed: An ordinance extending the time of the improvement of Hamilton street until tho SOth day of April, 1S34, read third time under suspension of the rules and passed. An ordinance providing for the time and manner of improving Genevieve street, read third time and passed. Un motion council adjourned. The Fire YiMtnlay. "When the few and feeble notes of the fire alann sounded faintly at noonj'ester- day, JUT men took hasty positions on Squemoqua street at its junction with Main, while 211 more stood on the last uaiued thoroughfare to see tlic depart ment get to work. Others whose noon day meal was interrupted hastened to ad jacent roofs, and one man in the exuber ance of an impatient disposition,chmbcd a flag-staff and yelled "fire!" Several oth ers made the same remark, which added to the manifest interest. A shaky-looking chimney in ihe rear of a frame building on the west side of Main street was ihe center of attraction. Thin wreuths of smoke were issuing from tho ventilated bricks and tho general impression wjih thut the red demon was concealed therein. This impression was intensified by tho lurther proseuca of a puu of smoke from that particular portion of the roof whore the bricks emerge, as it were, from the surrounding shingles. JJy this time Alert H. fc L. No. 1 had arrived and was busilv engaged in chopping away some of the shingles to admit of water being thrown in from the leather buckets that were filled and handed up bv other mem bors of tho company, llescuo No. 2 laid pipe, and at u subsequent stage of the conflagration threw n stroani. Astoria No. 1 stationed their hoso cart on Benton street and utilized the stream from their engine in giving that portion of tho ap paratus a bath. By this time it was de cided that there was no real danger from the devouring element, and the order to take up being given, the procession moved. Damages, $7.75: insured. Closini; Exercises at Cedar Street School. The usual programme of school duties at Cedar street school was pleasantly varied yesterday afternoon by the ren dition of an attractive programme by tho pupils. Tho principal's room was well filled with pupils and visitors who evinc ed tho greatest pleasure at ihe evident progress mads by the children. Follow ing is the rKOClCAMMK.

At the close of the exercises Rev. "Wrn. Boberts in a few well chosen remarks called attention to tho desirability of correctly learning to speak English. Miss Lawrence, the principal, then announced a vacation till Wednesday, January 2. 1884. Petty Pxltebiko. Several of our citi zens have been annoyed by finding, on arising in the morning, that tho morning paper, the milk, etc., had been stolen. Of late A. G.

"Come in," said a cheery voice. A knock nt the door marked "Privato office of Santa Claus" had elicited this hearty response. The visitor entered tho room. Good old Santa Claus stood in his shirt sleeves mixing lather. "Y'hy, what are you going to do?" was the spontaneous query of the visi tor. "Shave f was the laconic reply. j The direful consequences that would! arise from such an act had not entered ! the mind of tho good old saint, who; wouia never oe recognized asaama ciaus without his busby hair and lace mil of whiskers. "For mercy's sake, don't do it,' pleaded tho excited caller. "You will lose your identity if you do. Think how many, many years you uavo presenreu juss mat little red nose to view." '1 don't count by years, nut by Christ mas tides," replied Santa Claus. "but I will spare tho whiskers if you think that iny changed face would frighten the chil dren on Christmas eve." And a kindly look that boded well for the little ones came into his eyes. "So vou want to interview me. eh ?" chuckled Saute. "Just conic iuto my" store and see what I have for your jx-o-ple," and he led the way into a vast room, which seemed to be all out-doors, so big was it. An army of assistants were hard at work on their labor of love. "For it's only a few day's more," chirped Santa. And the hammers flew and tho saws whizzed and the forges scattered sparks of gold, ihe candy-makers moulded their wares into tempting shapes, and the doll-makers bent to their task of making 2f,0,000,l.OO spuiking dolls. The workmen didnotsbirK wbenftamn Claus was awayJjut his presence gavo them new vigor, and the amount of work they did was astonishing. Presents for babes, for little boys and little girls, for larger children, for young men and .mai dens., for staid married folks, and for the childhood of old age, wero stacked up in huge piles, covering acres of ground, seemingly in confusion; but they were j not, all 'being ready for the cunning hands of tho packers. Then bauta escorted his visitor to his public office, where his clerks wero dash ing away at corespondenco and filling up great books with the names of children and tho description of presents. Every laud and ever tongue were represented, but it was noticed that tho American de partment was the largest, and its clerks wero the busiest of the lot. The tele phone, which connected with the branch office, was ringing all tho time. "Come and listen to tho reports," said Santa-to tho visitor, as he grasped tho transmitter and placed it to his ear, say ing "Hello," in a very natural manner. "Hello! This is headquarters. Yes. Santa." This reply seemed to stagg6r the man at tho otner end, ns tho saint rarely an swers any of tho hundred telephones. "Go ahead," resumed Santa, "give me a full report. Who? Little Jimmy Green, ha, ha! Been a bad bay, eh? Pulled tho head off the doll 1 gave his sister lost Christmas. That's bad. Did you ask if he should bo forgotten this Christmas on account of it? Well, I should say not. Do you think I want to lose my reputa tion? Pll givo him a toy pistol. Hold on a minute, I'm called at tho Berlin tel ephone. Hanging up the ear-trumpst Santa Claus tripped to tho telephone marked JJerliu. ' "You must excuse me,"' said the kind old man to his caller, "but I am called up by influential men now and then, who are real!' my agents. Just before yon came I had a nice chat with Emperor William, of Germany, who asked mo to tako caro of the German children in America." The popular saint then resumed the telephone. The anent was telling him a long story which interested Santa very much, as his exclamations attested. Af ter ho had finished, the listener turned to his guest rnd said: "My trusty man on the Pacific coast has been talking on a subject that pains me every year at this happy season. It is impossible for me to visit every child, and it grieves mo to think of the many little worn stockings that oro hung up in my namo in which the trusting wearers hud nothing but disappointment on Christmas Day, tho one day of all the year in which such a thing should not exist. .Now, I cannot tend to everything,, and really, I wish when you get back to" Sour office you would inform my able and of assistants that I shall depend on them to look out for many oi tho child ren in your city, even if they do no more than to fill them to the necks with goodie?. Here is a list of the persons to whom I allude." This list contains .the names of many rich men and women which if published would create a sensation, and many who have given in secret would gain a rep utation far different from tho ono they now enjoy. "Why, isanta, exclaimed the visitor, 'do you really mean that these persons delight to please child life, and will bo wining io assist you mis iurisininsr "I assuredly do." replied the good old saint, with a tear of gratitude in his eye, my coming was eagerly looked for by them when thov were vounp. and tho onlv way in which they can revive those pleas ant memories is through the grateful hearts of other children, made so by their beneficence." Just then the St. Petersburg telephone rang out loudly for Santa Clans, tho Lon don telephone joined in, and then as if by a concerted signal all tho bells in tho room chimed merrily. In the midst of which musio tho visitor took his de parture. Notice to tho Public. Notice is hereby given that Alex.
