RECLAMATION OF THE OCEAN I1EICH.
Ui Intereotiii? sud ProbaMy Successful
The work now in progress on tho beach
in tho vioiuity of Point Adams light
house has occasioned considerable in
quiry, owing to its novelty and evident
value if successful, and with a view to
noting its advance, an Astokian repre
sentative visited the scene of action in
the early part of this week.
The primary purpose of the work is to
cover the sand with a vegetable growth
that will hold it firm nud prevent the
constant drifting and formation of hills
and hollows, that are gradually encroach
ing on the light-house reservation and
threatening to cover it np.
So far the work has been satisfactory.
The material used is mainly a spscies of
ribbon grass called arunde: this grass
has leaves about an inch in width, and
grows from eighteen inches to two feet
in length. Its stalk below the surface
has numerous eyes, from which shoot
several sprouts that spread in all direc
tions to come to the surface, and form a
new stalk with sets of leaves, thus inter
locking in a network of roots and hold
ing the sand down. This grpss is gather
ed on Ilwaco beach by a man named
Andersen, who gets twenty cents a bng
for the grass plants. Each sack contains
about 3,000 plants, and is carried to Fort
Stevens. So far, about a quarter of a
million plants have been set out. The
men at work have be-nm a htt'e below
the southwest corner of the forty-acre
light-house reservation, and have planted
a strip about 1,000 feet wide np the
beach. One man makes a hole with a
snide, another drops in a stall: of urtni
do, and covers it, and fo the process is
repeated, the stalks being not from a foot
to eighteen inches arl each way. lliev
immediately take root, and grow luxuri
antly. Last Tuesday the wind blew ."7
niilcs an hour, within a very few miles as
hard as it ever blovs there, and the com
paratively slight impediment that the
young grass offered to the gale proved
sufficient to prevent the usual shifting
and advance of tho dunes. Beginning at
high water mark and advancing east
ward to tho timber, the little clumps of
gras pres?nt a singular appearance. Ry
next spring, it is confidently execfcd,
that what was before a strip of &i:ul and
desolation, will bo a surface of smiling
verdure, as solid and unyielding as an
Beside the grass there is another agent
used in the suljjugation of the ever mov
ing sind in the shape of a peculiar piuo
found on this northwest coast only at the
Seaside. This is the pint' j iym ?, or
Monterey pine, a hard, black, reunions
tree tho "bark of which is not affected by
the sand. A large number of baby tre?s,
from four inches to a foot in height, huvo
been set in sorpentino curves :i!ong tho
beach, and in time will constitutoa beau
tiful avenue for delightful so.nr.hore
drives. Pines of this species pat for the
samo purpose in Golden Gate Park. San
Francisco, in 1S71 are now
ritoai sixty to eight? rain man.
The pines being et outar Point Adams
are only removed a distance of fifteen
miles, are thoroughly acclimated, and
will, presumably, grow with equal vigor
and rapidity. In that park l,0.'i0 acres of
desolate beach have been leclaimed in a
manner similar to the plan here adopted.
In Golden Gate Park were used lupine,
Honolulu knot grass, pimis insigt,vs and
acacias. The lupine and knot grass are
here represented by the arunilo which is
thought to b6 equally valuable on ac
oonnt of being found peculiarly adapted.
Tho work looks easy enough, but those
in charge siy that a great deal of judg
ment is necessary in so disposing of all
all appliances that the best practical re
sults aro attainable. Tho first work of
this kind in the United States was that
heretofore alluded to at San Francisco.
The second was on a strip of wind-blown
waste between tho Dalles and Wallula
Junction which tho O. R. & N. Co. had
sown with wild rye, willows and cotton
wood; the work, more especially around
John Day's station, being a complete suc
cess. The work under discussion is the
third of tho kind, and should it be the
success it now gives promise of, it will be
continued at Shoalwater bay light sta
tion and other points on this northwest
coast. Tho chief desideratum is to get
vegetable material from the immediate
IS ALIIEAUY ACCLIMATIZED.
The fact that the ribbon grass and pine
are got so close by is considered certain
to insure splendid results in the. reclam
ation of the beach in front of Pt. Adams.
Parties owning property adjoining, in
cluding Capt. Flavel and others intend
tjrdoitthe same means of transform
ing the beach to tho south'ard, and it
may bo that at no distant day, the en
tire stretch of shore from Ft. Stevens to
Seaside will be a waving lino of emerald
green from high water to tho friugo of
forest westward from the ocean, thus
forming a magnificent drive 1,000 feet
wide and seventeen miles in length.
There aro thirteen men employed at
present, and the extent and character of
the work already performed is good guar
antee that they understand their busi
ness. This has long been a favorite scheme
of Capt. Chas. F. Powell, and tho success
of this attempt will doubtless lead to its
adoption in other localities.

A GHEAT AND ESDURIG TTORK.
Mr. Ashloy Bancroft, who has beon
with us a few days, says that ho feels un
dor great obligations to tho peoplo of
Astoria for their courteous attention and
consideration extended to him in his la
bor of collecting data for Mr. H. H. Ban
croft's historical worlcs of tho Pacific
He expresses wonder and surpriso at
the enormous amounts expended annual
ly in tho manufacturing interests, and of
the great importance of this place, and
anticipates a rich harvest in gathering
facts and figures relating thereto. He is
now carefully progressing in his york.
That the interests of our well favored
section may be properly placed in his
tory, as well as tho experiences and rem
iniscences of thoso who have laid bare
their arms and helped to hew out the
history of, our northwest, every assistance
should be given him.
It is gtotif ying to learn that as ll. H.
Bancroft proceeds in his historical series
the press, critics and scholars eery
where vie with each other in their ex
pressions of the great value, absorbing
interest and high literary execution of
his works. Wo are informed that no
volume thus far published, not oven those
telling of a past ago and t past civilisa
tion, nor those picturing anew the early
discoveries, nor the ono detailing tho
most striking cpis.nl? that has taken
place on this continent the conquest of
.alexia nor the one on tho states of
Mexico, whose cloo proximity to our
country make their history ot more man
usual interest, nor even the voinnio on
the early missions of California, attract
ed so much attention from the press, or
has been so much sought after and in
quired for as tha first volume of tho "His
tory ef tho Northwest Coast. 1513-1SC0,"
which appeared in July, being prelimi
nary to and part of the "History of Ore
gon, History of Washington, Idaho and
Montana, and the History of British
Columbia." The second" volume of
the same, bringing tho history of the
same section down to 1SW, will appear
this mouth. These two volumes, with
the volumes devoted to Oregon exclusive
ly, which will appear at the proper time,
will place tho history of oar State on a
sjlid foundation forever. Of tho vol
umes mentioned above it takas but a mo
ment's perasal of the preface and a
glance over the varied table of contents
to see what a rich feast is spread before
one. The authorities quoted show the
rich sources of Bancroft's material and
an index in tho second volume will ena
ble one to enjoy tho volumes to the full.
In tho placing of theso volumes on the
early history of this State in tho hands of
intelligent and progressive men through
out the world, Bancroft is doing this
State a service its citizens can never re
pay. This work, to the pioneer as a represen
tative man. possesses a peculiar charm;
their struggles, hardships, and reminis
cences, chronicled in history by a man of
scope and genius acknowledged to be
equal to Prcscott, Gibbon, McCaullay,
the great historians of the world. Such
an enterprise is deserving of a generous
sympathy. The projector can have no
sordid moth o; a -very limited amount of
sagacity may perceivo the futility of pe
cuniary return awaiting work of this
character. Tho history of tho work, as
well as its contents is of great interest,
embracing a vast historical research and
attendant expense, and tho enterprise in
its philanthropic aspect stands uiiiqus m
tho annals of the nation.
The Projected O. It. JL N. Lea.?.
PnrLADHLPniA. Oct. 9. Tho Press" New
York special says: Tho project of the
Northern Pacific, looking to tho lease of
the Oiegon Railway and Navigation lino
has not. according to the best informa
tion, been relinquished but only deferred.
It continues to bo discussed. Tho Ore
gon Navigation Company demands an 8
par cent, guarantee after five years, but
tho Northern Pacific objects to paying so
much. There will probably be a compro
mise. For two years tho guarantee will
no doubt be G per cent., for three years
7 per cent., and afterward the dividend
will be in proportion to tho net earnings.
The general opinion is that the Northern
Pacific requires the leaso for its best in
terests, which will not bo served merely
by building the Cascade branch from
Ainsworth to Tacoma, on Pugct Souud,
for then it will not havo secured Port
land. The Union Pacific would be very
glad to secure a lease and has offered bet
ter terms than the Northern, but there
app?ars no doubt of tho lease going to
tho Northern, as it will be to tho advan
tageof both corporations. Some of the
Navigation stockholders are adverse to a
lease to either of tho Pacific roads, being
convinced that their interests will be
bet secured by remaining independent

Hon the Eetiey May itm b'ATtd.
The story-telling hour hadjeome when
men, not wearied with their four hours'
watch, wero sitting in the dimly lighted
forccas'lo and quaffing sundry swallows
of hot scotch. For even with a captain
strict and mate severe, tho jolly Eailors
always fiud a chanco to bring on board
their ship at port that which 'twould
grieve their hearts to leavo behind. And
now tho sailers who had been on watch
the cnly part of this October night wero
anxious to bo entertained by tale of
wreck or stories of some gallant chief
tains' might. All hands now called on
old Benjamin, or "Salty Ben," as ho was
chiefly named, for Ben could spin a yarn
at any time and as a dealer in romance
was justly famed. Pressing the bottle to
his thirsty lips a long, a loving pull took
Salty Ben, and then he placed the flask
away beside the bed, beyond the quiet
reach of other men. " 'Twas in the fall
of J7C' said Ben, and all the others in
their eagerness to hear drew close their
stools so as not to interrupt when further
on, and each took a parting sip of his
good cheer. "I shipped on board the
hchooner Betsey May, a three-and-after
tight and strong was she. We loaded
her with coal in Buffalo creek, and in a
howling gale we pnt to sea. With waves
and storms wo battled long and hard,
bat when eight days wo had been out at
sea, our sailors listening o'er tho wind
ward bow, could hear tho siren sound ot
SkilligallleG. And soon the Beavers and
tho Foxes Isles hal far behind our vesol
sunk from view, and up before us from
the surging deep aroso tho Northern isle
of Manitou. Down past this islo of the
Indian's God wo dashed with whits spray
living high in air, and Captain Jackson,
standing on the quarter deck, watched
for the land marks as tho shore grew
nigh. And soon lie saw tho proper point
was passed, so with both hands to shel
ter his wide mouth he loudly to the stur
dy steersman called, 'head this good ship
southwest by south, half south.' And
now the wind was square abaft tho ship
and mountains high the surging sea had
risen. We winged tho main and foresail
and dropped the peak to scandalize tho
niizzen. Colder and darker grew the
autumn night, and every wavo that swept
o'er our gallant ship left, as it washed
tho ropes, and spars, and deck, a coat of
white, like canales in a dip. And soon
our boat was groaning 'neath a load of
ice that heaped tho deck and clambered
up each mast, until sho lost all semblance
of a ship, and from each breast all rays
of hope were cast. Tho crisis in tho trip
had come, when Capt. Jackson seemed to
strike a brilliant deal. He called tho
crew upon the quarter-deck, and thu3 did
to the shivering crowd appeal: 'With
your good help this vessel can be saved
and sailed between those two Milwaukee
piers, but everj- man must do his duty,
trust in a higher power, and yield
not to fears. Now, who of those on
board this ship can givo a reason why
tho great United States should have a
change in general government, or altera
tion in the regular tariff rates?' I can
show reasons,' said Mike Donivau, 'why
both these things would do the country
good.' 'You can do no such thing,' said
Jack McGnire, for Jack was always in an
argutfyiug mood. And then a row began.
The like of it you never in your lifetime
saw, and those who knew the least of
politics were loudest in expounding com
mon law. The clamor that they made
arose and drowned the howling of the
midnight gale, but as it did tho tempera
ture did higher get, and soon the ice's
grip upon the ropes and spars began to
fail. And down upon tho icy deck, de
scending from the rigging high, and
frozen sail, great icicles came thunder
ing and crumbling scattered o'er the
gleaming rail. And those who
in debating took no side wero
set to trimming s they do on land, and
ax and spado did execution good, wielded
by this erstwhile despairing band. So
o er the monkey-rail and taff-rail, too,
and over all tho other rails about the
craft, great cakes of loosened icowere
fired into the surging billows and soon
swept aft. Now as each chunk of ico
into the lake was thrown tho vessel high
er from tho water raised her bead, and
soon as trim as this good ship to-night
the Betsey May toward Milwaukee sped.
At daybreak wind and sea had calmed a
bit, and argument upon questions of the
day was stopped because the weather
had so sultry grown that coats were shed
and sweating brows were mopped. And
long before tho evening of that day the
BeUey May was snugly in Milwaukee
moored, while many vessels quite as
strongly built as she sho went down tho
night before with all on board."
