SHOOTING ON SIIIl'IiOAUD.
Yesterday morning a little shooting
match occurred on board the German
bark Britannia which resulted in the
shooting of one man, a suit in the justice
court, an interested crowd and n first
class item for a dull Now Year's day.
lhe first story was to tho effect that
ilrrv Newman, a'longshoreman, claimed
Ir -John Poe, a sailor on board the

went ou board to collect his bill. In

blank one, struck him directly over the
heart, passing through coat and shirt,
and leaving a mark the size of the cir
cumference of the cartridge on the skin.
A second cartridge, not a blank one, dis
charged accidentally, winged one Chas.
Kearney, a runner for Chaplain Stubbs,
taking him in the left arm where the
ball lodged. All hands were promptly
bundled into a boat and dumped in jail.
A second boat load of witnesses having
been procured, the parties appeared be
fore Justice Goodell at four o'clock,
when after some argument concerning
tho legality of proceeding in tho
matter on a legal holiday, the case was
adjourned to 7 p. m., the defendant who
was charged with assault with intent to
kill, giving bonds in the sura of $250 for
When the case came np at 7, the sail
ors subpoenaed knew nothing about it.
Kearney explained that it was nothing at
all, just a little skylarking, and ac
cording to all hands it was just a way

counsel for dofendant moved the case be
dismissed, and tho prosecution concur
ring it was so ordered.

organized and procured sleighs in which
they sat in style nnd rode gaily by their

no public observance of tho day, but
everyone took things "sort o' easy" and
had a good time indoors. Toward even

A FRIEND OF THE SAILOR.
Bforo Jnstioe Goodell Intt Tuesday,
a i eared Jus. Hannan, a sailor from tho
B.'tianniu who told n talo na follews:
He, with others, was shipped from Chap
lain Stubbs' "sailora' home' in Portland,
md agreed to sign the ehip'a articles
-TjiSe coming down from the pleasant
.nlaud city of Portland. During the
oyage d iwn he w.is c illeJ into the cab
in and given a pi per to sign in which
i;ute(it dollirsfor every mouth of his
.gt-3 wi-ro to b deducted. He r.sked
'tiat thut was for. Ho w.ts told ''No
natter, Hign." He refunl tj d so,
vht-rrtipou. he alleges, Cnas. Kearny,
the "chaplaiuV runner, drew a revolver
and said, "Sign, or I'll blow your brains
out!" Not knowing how long be might
be allowed to have them, Hannan con
cluded to use his brains while they were
still intact, and rushed from the cabin,
Kearney in pursuit. He ran forward and
jumped down the forecastle, Kearney
after him, who, grabbing Hannan, began
caressing him over the head with a re
volver, threatening him at tho same time
unless he signed. This he refused to do,
and getting to Astoria tried to go ashore,
Kearney telling him that he would blow
the top of his head on if he got into a
boat. Watching his opportunity he fi
nally slipped over the vessel's side and
managed to get ashore and to tho jus
tice's office, where ho told the above.
Kearney was arrested on a charge of
assault, and pleaded guilty, being fined
$1. "Chaplain" Stubbs is no doubt a
"friend of the sailor,' because he says
he is, but some of his employes seem to
have a singular way of expressing their
friendship. But Haunrtii didn't give up
tho $18 a month that some one of the
thrifty Portland establishments wanted.
If anything one-third as bad as this hap
pened in Astoria the Portland papers and
"Chaplain"' Stubbs would choko with
virtuous indignation over such an out
rage on tho sailor who has in that city
so many kind friends.
H0NEI IX THE Ml LI, ATA.
lleubcu Green, of Half Moon, Pacific
count3, left his home on Thursday, Dec.
18, to gel tome medicine for one of his
brother's children, and during that night
before his return, tho rain and melting
snow raised the Willapa so that saw-logs
weic running lively, by daylight tho next
morning, Mr. Green came back and un
dertook to cross the river at the ford on
W. W. Lilly's laud on horseback, about
noon, Friday Dec. 10, and was swept down
stream. The horse gained tho bank some
forty rods below the ford. Mr. Daymon,
who lives a short distance from the ford,
saw tho young man pass, and thought he
would see how deep tho river was and
turn back shortly, so ho followed down
to see what had become of him, and saw
by t he tracks that he h?d gone into the
river, but there were none on the opposite
bank. Soarch for the body was com
menced at once, but it was not found un
til tho following Tuesday, when it wpb
discovered about twenty rods below un
der a log, four feet under water. Mr.
Green had only been in tho valley a few
months, and was not probably aware of
the depth of the stream, as it had risen
FcTor ou tbe Ship Star or Erin.
The report circulated yesterday that
capes of yellow fever were on board the
British ship Star of Erin, which arrived
here on Saturday night from Acapuico in
ballast and anchored off Black point, has
been proved to be erroneous. Quarantine
Officer McAllister went out to the ship in
a Whitehall boat on Saturday night, and
after a thorough investigation, discovered
that the seamen were suffering from in
termittent fever of a malarial nature,
caused by impure water taken on at
Acapuico. The vessel left that port on
the 4th inst., bound for Portland, Or.,
but her voyage was one of disaster. On
the 18th inst. Captain Coulter died and
was buried at sea, and during the re
mainder of the voyage the chief mate, J.
F. Bussell, and fourteen of the crew were
taken sick, leaving only five men to man
age tho "vessel. The quarantine officer
has recommended the removal of the af
flicted seamen to the county hospital and
thinks that with proper care they can be
fully cured. S. F. Cnroniclc, Dec. 29.
The above would indicate that the crew
of the bark Emblelon, now fever-stricken
on board that vessel in the channel, are
suffering from tho same complaint, as the
Embleton is also from Acapuico. A man
who was aboard yesterday says 'they are
all yellow,'" and present a most repulsive
There were eleven of the crew of the
ship Euterpe, which sailed yesterday, in
irons when tho ship left. It is stated
that they were shipped here persons on
shore getting $15 advance nnd the un
fortunate men signing for $." a month.

An old Oregonian says thatitisnon
senso to say that this is the roughest
winter ever" experienced in Oregon, at
least until the snow shall be two feet
deep on the level, as it was in 18l-2.,
Hg says that winter commenced earlier
and it snowed at intervals all through
tho winter months, producing great suf
fering among people and cattle. On the
other hand, to show tho variableness of
our climate, Governor Abernathy, who
is now dead, told of threo successive
winters in tho forties during which there
was neither ice nor snow in all tho Wil
At a social gathering the other evening
somebody asked Captain Sollaire when
he was going to put to sea. "To-morrow
morning,-' the manner replied, "my
sails are all bent." Thero was a young
lady present from Boston, and after ad
justing her eye-glasses, she said in some
surprise: "1 should think, Captain Sol
taire, that you would be afraid to put
to sea in this stormy season with sails
that are bent. But that is always tbe
way with you reckless mariners. And
tell me, pray 1 am always curious about
mntters of this sort tell mo how vour
sails got bent." The Captain regarded
the vomu; ladv from Boston loner and
steadfastly. Then he replied in a strain
ed and careworn veice: "It was done by
getting into the breakers. As a general
thing, you know, the breakers always

charter. Now would it not be well to
continue the good work by inviting cor
respondence regarding -th'o merits of tho
proposition to construct a bridge across
Young's bay from Smith's point to
Sltipanon. The county commissioners
wiil meet in a few dbja, and before them
will be placed a petition asking for tho
construction of said bridge at county ex
pense. One says the proposed bridge
will cost $20,000: another says 50,000.
We know such structures are never built
at estimated cost. The petition calls for
tho building of the bridge without even
n limit na to cost. Is this county finan
cially able to build this bridge, or in fact
to unaertaKe anyxning iu me aj um

soon bo compelled to provide this county
with a safe and convenient court house.
an investment for tho benefit of the
whole county, an investment not to en
hance values in one section to the detri
ment of another.
County, city, school and road taxes
aggregate $37.50 on the $1,000, in Asto
ria, for the year 1831, and still from the
appearance of these petitions named it
is clear that some either think taxes not
high enough, or sign without thinking, or
because others sign.
On these petitions to be presented can
bo seen the names of men who never paid
a tax: men who say they cannot raise
the money to pay tho city tax: men who
have not paid their school tax for two
years: men who have money stored in
safes and banks and refuse to make
loans because, in their own words, "taxes
in Astoria eat up the interest," and the
names of many, many, who would not
have signed had ono silver dollar been
required from them to go toward the
construction of the bridge. Where is the
constitution of Orecon in which counties
are limited to $5,000 indebtedness. This
insidious desire to get more and more
into the mire of debt is becoming so epi

and school affairs that good citizens arc
