Titk Astop.tax Runrantees to its ad vertisers the largest circulation of any newspaper published on the Columbia river. Last day of tho legislature. The Columbia arrives to-dpy. The Orisedale haa arrived out. Samuel Elmore and family are on the incoming steamer. A popular vote in Astoria would elect Mitchell senator by a large majority. The choir of the Congregation church "will hold their regular rehearsal this evening. A substantial addition has been made to Wilson & Fisher's dock at which the Telephone will land. The O. R. & J. Co. announces the low rate of one dollar a ton on wheat from all points on tho Willamette to Portland. This knocks the backbone out of the op position but temporarily benefits the raisers of tho valley. Frank Surprenant started from Fort Stevens last Wednesday afternoon in a row boat, but one of his oars breaking, he went drifting toward the bar. The crew of tho Geo. S. Homer rescued him. It was a narrow escape. No word was received, yesterday from Salem regarding the election of pilot commissioners, but it is very probable that Capt. Allan Noyes and Louis Wilson of this city and J. A. Brown, of Portland were elected. N. Johansen. of upper Astoria, was one of a picked bodyguard of thirty-five men, who accompanied General Gordon in his operations against the Tai-pings in China in 18C3. Mr. Johansen says that he was tho bravest and coolest man he ever saw. A bill to give the Columbia bridge com pany the right to build across the Wil lamette river between Portland and East Portland has been passed by tho senate. The structure will cost in the neighbor hood of 100,000, and will have a 100-foot draw. According to to the now city directory the population of the city of Portland proper is 33,000. This not including the Chinese who number 2,000, nor doe3 it take into consideration East Portland or Albina, which would swell the total to 43,000. Henry Failing: John H. Mitchell: Sol Hirsch one of these three will bo elected I nited States senator at Salem to-day, w th their chances in tho order named. Party majority entitles Hirsch to the elec tion; a popular vote would give it to Mitchell, but Henry Failing will bo likely t j capture the prize. The Oregon is advertised to sail for San Francisco to-day. Among other things she takes 15,000 sacks of potatoes to California, tho largest shipment ever made. Oregonians are getting half a oent a pound, and tho shippers figure that at San Francisco prices they can clear 1 cents n bushel. This is close figuring. A dispatch received from Salem lost evening says: "Hirsch, 29; R. 13. Cochran, 31; Williams, 1C; Watson, 2; Boise, C; George, 1; Carson, 1. Tho contest is get ting interesting. Salem is crowded with poople from ail parts of the state. The tug of war begins in earnest at noon to morrow." Owing to the unceasing rain the pro posed parade of Astoria Division No. One. Uniform Rank, K, of P., did not take place yesterday afternoon. The lodge met, initiated some new members and elected the following efficers: A. E. Shaw, C: J. W. Hume, L. C: F. L. Par ker, H.; S. Bozorth, R.; H. F. Prael, T.; G. W. Woods, G.; J. A. Davidson. S.; Jay Tnttle, I. O. A stage was upsot in Applegate oreek in southern Oregon the other day by a rush of salmon. The horses were cut loose and the driver escaped on their backs, Tho salmon crowded the river from bank to bank and the school was over a mile long. Hundreds of them jumped out upon the banks and wriggled around until they died. The farmers of Applegate are feeding their hogs upon the fish, and dozens of the farmers' boys are spearing the salmon for fun. Yosterday, "says th6 Tacomn Netcsot the 13th, a term of tho district oourt, Judge Greene presiding, was held on board the stoamer Wilmington while that vessel was on the way from La Con nor to Seattle. It appears that just after the oourt had adjourned for the term, two men accused of murder were taken to La Connor. The sheriff was direoted to put the prisoners on board the Wil mington, where court was opened in due form and an examination took place. Thomon were acquitted. This is the first instance within our knowledge of a term of court being held on a steamboat at sea. Notice.

In tho state senate last Wednesday, Siglin's woman suffrage bill came up un der special order. Davenport did not be lieve in the constitution taking away the rights of hnlf of its citizens; did not be lieve in vested rights; believed all power was inherent in tbe people, and as part of the poople women should have the right of suffrage. Lee felt in honor bound to heed the voice of his constituents, who had de clared their will at the last election upon this question. Siglin should vote for this bill, because it was just and right. There was no constitutional inhibition against such measure. He believed men were cowards who would not honestly face this subject. He thought his daughter had as much right to vote as the man who blacked his boots; believed in keeping paco with hu man progress, and though others, might, he would not anchor his faith to the dead past. Haines explained that his constituents had voiced their sentiments upon this question, and ho would not change by his vote their verdict. Hare believed women could vote under the constitution but they should go to the courts for redress. He voted against the bill, against the earnest appeal of his wife and daughter. The vote of the bill stoed: Ayes Bil yeu, Carson, Cartwright, Davenport, Hall, Hirsch, Hoult, Miller, Siglin, and Voorhees 10. Nays Allen, Burch, Cau thorn, Coleman, Dorris, Emmitt, Haines, Hare, Lee, Myers, Pennington, Prim, Reed, Riuehart, Shupe, Simon, Weather ford and Waldo 18. Warren and Wil liams were absent.

Another Jftn "Behind the Tlae." "Anti-monopoly legislation" reached high water mark in the new pilot bill de vised to "free the Columbia river bar'' from monopoly. It takes $10,000 out of the treasary to keep up a little sail boat that will be of no use whatever, and will cost tho wheat growers of the state many times this sum in increased rates of pi lotage. The sail pilot boat can't bring a vessel in, and both her pilot and the tug pilot will have to be paid by the ship. This will come out of the wheat crop, of course. Your anti-monopoly legislator, when he gets right down to his work, can do fearful and wonderful things. Editorial in 5V-tfmaj.- Oregonian. The Steamer Telephone. Captain U. B. Scott's new steamer Telephone is being finished as fast as possible. It is expected by her builders that she will be ready for active service one week from to-day. The upper inside painting is being done ut present. The cabin floors will be of ash. The seats were taken down to the dock yesterday and will be put in immediately. The in terior is white with golden trimmings and presents a beautiful appearance. She will have sixteen cosy staterooms, several closets, cupboards, a purser's of ficet a dining room and a fore and after cabin. From the Telephones present ap pearance it requires no stretch of the im agination to see that she will be the handsomest'as well as the fastest boat on the river. News. iXcwhpapcr Agency.

WHERE IS THE MOSEY The balance of trade has been in favor of the United states for sight years past, during which we as a nation have lived within our means and have saved twelve hundred million dollars. During the same eight years not less than six hun dred million dollars of gold and silver have been dug out of the ground, and been added to all the other hundreds of millions in the country prior to 1877. Including these three sources, it may be reasonably stated that the United States ought to be ahead now at least $5,500, 000,000 in coin, and would be were it not for tho payment of debts owed by our people in Europe. It is hard to believe, though, that anything like the amount above named has gone for that purpose, or the half of it, and the supposition is probably a good one that there is now in the country not far from $1,500,000,000 in gold and silver. This is a sum beyond comprehension, but it is no more so than it is beyond comprehension where all the money has gone. 'With a record like the foregoing one would think that all the channels of trade should be gorged with money, and that the people under such circumstances would have entered upon a career of enterprise and speculation, or of extravagance, unparalleled in his torv. Such is not the case, however. On'tae contrary it has been a long time since such caution in business and such general economy has been witnessed as as boeu the rule of the American people during the past twelve months, and, we may say, taking the people as a whole, during the past twelve years. Tho result has been the formation of a national habit of economy, rigid almost to a fault, which cannot be shaken off or hanged for years to come, and which must end in the accumulation of wealth beyond all past report or conception.

Dynamite is prepared by simply knead iug with the Baked hand3 twenty-five per cent of infusorial earth and soventy-five of nitro-glycerine until the mixture as sumes a putty condition, not unlike moist brown sugar. Before mixing the infusorial earth is calcined in a furnace in order to burn out all organic matter, and it is also sifted to free it of large grains. "While still moist it is squeezed into cartridges, which are prepared of parchment paper, and the firing i3 done by fulminate of silver in copper capsules provided with patent exploders. Nitro-glycerino is made of nitric acid one part and sulphuric acid two parts, to which is added ordinary glycerine, and the mixture is well washed with pure water. The infusion is composed of small, microscopic silicious shells which have lost their living creatures. The cellular parts receive the nitro-glycerine and hold it by capillary attraction, both inside and out. The eirth is very light. Water is expelled from it by means of a furnace, and then in the form of a ikw der it is mixed with nitro-glycerie. Nitro glycerine has a sweet, aromatic, pungent taste and tli6 peculiar property of caus ing a violent heudache when placed in a small quantity on the tongue or wrist. It freezes at forty degrees Fahrenheit, becoming a white, half-crystalized mass, which must bo melted by the application of water at a temperature of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. FIrt Come, KIrt Sfrrrd. A case of interest to wholesale mer chants was decided by the supreme court Tuesday. It was the case of Atwood against Martin, sheriff of Umatilla coun ty, and others, appealed from Umatilla county. Briefly told it is a3 follews: Tho stock of one Donaca, a general mer chandise dealer at Contcrville, Umatilla county, was attached by Portland cred itors in January, 1834, for sums aggregat ing about $10,000. Donaca confessed judgment, and in due course of timo the sheriff took possession of the property and began making preparations to sell it to satisfy the judgments. Donaca owed about $8,000 in San Francisco, and these creditors asked for an injunction to prevent tho sheriff from selling the property, on tho ground of alleged fraud between Donaca and the Portland cred itors. When tho case came up for trial in the state circuit court the plaintiff did not establish tho charge of fraud and tho injunction was dissolved. Tho su preme court affirmed the desision of the lower court, and tho San Francisco cred itors are "out and injured.' It was a case of speed in securing claims, in which Portland outran San Francisco and had the law to protect them. Orejonian, 19. In It IVot True? There can be no argument as to the qualities essential to a perfect remedy for tho ills arising from a disordered or inactive condition of the Liver, Stomach and Bowels. Everyone will admit that it should be perfectly safe for -old and young of both sexes, at any and all times; that it should be acceptable both to the taste and the stomach; that it should never fail to act promptly and thoroughly, yet painlessly, and ttshould give strength to those organs.
