and scow adrift and dragging anchors
toward Scarborough head. The driver
and boat caught about two miles below,
but the scow kept going out with the ebb

to the south of Sand Island. Finally she
drifted across the bar and out to sea,
when a boat put off from the cape -with
six members of the life crew who board
ed her, the Miles coming to the rescue
and towing her back. When inside a
sadden lurch sent the. scow onto her
side, five of tho men slipping into the
water but escaping with nothing worse
than a ducking. The scow was finally
anchored safely and awaits an owner.

The jetty ruv:uuie:idcJ by the ma
jority of the lotrd of engineers or
18S2. whose commencement is author
ized by the act of July ., 18S1, is a low
tide structure txteuding from near Fort
Stevens, on the south cape, and by a
slightly convex curve on the north to a
point about : miles south of Cape Disap
pointment. Some latitude in the length
of the jetty is permitted: and also in an
increPtiv of contraction by raising the
jetty or by a short work on Peacock spit.
A certain construction is provided for,
whose estimate of $3,710,000 is based on
stone and beton blocks as the material of
u.3e, although mattresses and piling in tho
shoaler water are recommended wher
ever practicable and economical.
Tho detailed hydrographic survey
commenced in June," 1883, was completed
in August, but from want of funds the
final chart has not been finished. A field
sheet was of value for use in changing
position of buoys and for inspetion of
pilots. A preliminary chart showing the
new ship-channel of the entrance and
the channelto Maker's bay was plotted,
and several prints issued in September
to members of tue board of engineers,
pilots and ship-masters. The survey was
detailed; it included soundings over the
dangerous Peacock and Clatsop npits,
which were tuade by the means of the
life-boat of the Oajw Disappointment
station. For this service more than or
dinary credit is due to Otto vouGelderu,
chief "of party, and t- Captain Harris,
keeper o! the life fining station.
Considerable changes of the sands have
occurred since the survey. The ship
channel has worked somewhat to the
southward. Peacock suit has shoaled at
its ends and tnken the form of a hook,
pointing towards Sand island, with a
tendency toward it and to dec-pan at the
elbow of the hook. The island has
moved further into linker's bay. Chinook
spit channel has shoaled considerably,
and so that the Fort Canity tug does not
use it, but makes the outside passage.
Tho indenture ou the river side of Clat
sop spit has widened and extended to
wards the sea.
The most important change in refer
ence to the jetty construction is the
jetty is tho shifting of the channel
towards a line at right nng'ea to the jetty
directien: it shows the need, since the
.woik is to be done, of the least praetica-
o:e ueiay in lis execution.
The present channel depth is believed
to be 18 to It) feet at low water and for an
insUfiicIeut with: '( feet are required on
the bar. in a channel wide and direct,
and :5 feet are deairable for the deep
ships needed by the C-olitm'iin river
It is judged th;t the appropriation will
permit construction of the ejevated tracks
from the go eminent wharf, along the
high water line in front of Ft. Stevens,
to the point from which the jetly is pro
jected into tho breakers: the purchase
of hoisting engines, pile drivers, building
a fleet of sea-going dump scows, wharf
extension, erection of derricks, and ex
tensive brush work at base of Clatsop
spit, coust ruction of needed buildings,
and general preparation for work on tho
jetty proper, so that when more funds
are available contracts cm be made for
material, and for sea towage, and tho
jetty pushed out. preceded where depths
of water iiermit by the foundation
It is expected to apply the amount
asked for in building about i miles of
structure, which it is thought will check
the southward tendency of tho channel.
Tliclljitt? Hero Hard at WnrV on Hit. War
New Youk, March 7. General Grant
ate terrapin to-day. Dr. Douglass
said he swallowed with more ease,
and retained terrapin more read
ily even than liquid food. Sixty-sixth
street was never so fall of car
riages, wagons and telegraph boys as
to-day. Harrison, the general's "body
serraht, said no ono was admitted to tho
sick room. It is understood that while
the general feels well enough to receive
his friends, he will not take the time.
Knowing that he has but a few months
to live, ho is crowding himself with work,
in order that his history of the war may
be completed by his own hand. While
at times he feeln a lingering hope that
he may get better, he does not allow his
energies to tlag, and in order to push for
ward the work lie denies himself even the
pleasure of seeing his friends. "The
disease will seem to be better at times,"
said Dr. Douglass, "and again it will ap
pear worse than ever. It lights up, as it
were, and then dies out, but its course is
onward. While the general i easier to
day, 1 can't say that he is absolutely
better. 1 left him sitting up.'
Dr. Douglass also said: ""If General
Grant has any satisfaction in the reflec
tion that misery loves companionship,
he may have it In the fact that 1 have
learned to-day thnt the ex-king of Portu
gal is suffering from the samo disease
and in thesame place, with the difference
that the ex-kiug's mouth is affected on
the left side, while the general's trouble
is on he right side.' As to the ultimate
result, Douglass says that cancer is an
incurable disease, and that the time as
to its fatal termination cannot be fore
cast. Death comes from tho sudden ex
haustion of the thai powers, and as
illustrative of this uncertainty the doctor
said that he had had a patient who was
out horseback riding two days betore he

A dispatch from Victoria. B. C, savs,
The bark Innenncl:, Captain "Waters,
thirty-one davs from Yokohama, has
just arrived, andthe master renorts a i
very stormy passage. An midnight on

gitude 170 degrees 13 minutes east, the
wind was blowing heavily from the
southeast, with the ship running before it
under short sail. At 1 in the morning it
incroassd to a living gale, with the sky of
a pitchy blackness. At ; o clock, the
captain who was aroused by the mate,
went on deck and found the sky chan,
ing to a fiery red, as if the entire heav-1

ens were in a conflagration. All at onco i
a largo mass of lire appeared over the
vessel, completely blinding the specta
tors at the time, 'and as it fell into the
sea some fifty yards to the leeward, it
cansed a hissing sound, heard even above
the blast, causing the vessel to quiver
from stem to stern. Hardly had this dis
appeared when the mate, clutching the
captaiu's arm, cried: "My God! what is
that?" pointing to a towering mass of
white foam rapidly approaching tho ap
parently doomed vessel. The noise from
the advance of tho Aolume of water is
described as deafening. As the bprkwas
struck flat aback, and before there was
time to touch a brace, the sails filled
again and the roaring white sea could be
seen passing away ahead. To increase
the horror of tha situation, another vast
sheet of tlamc ran down the mi.7.eu i
mast, from whose rigging poured myr-
lads ol sparKs, ami for JO minutes the
strange red of the sky remained. The
master who is an old and experienced
mariner, declares that the awfulness of
the sight was bevoud description. He
considers the ship had a narrow escape i
from destruction. i

The report that the charier of the
si earner Mexico has expired, and that
she will be drawn from tha Sound route
permanently is without foundation. For
the past four or five months the P. C. S.
S. Co. has been overhauling its vessels
on the Portland line, and temporarily
put the Queen of the Pacific thereon, and
supplied the Queen's place with the Geo.
W. Klder on their Sound route. The
three steamers on the Portland route are:
State of California, Oregon and Colum
bia. The two former have been over
hauled and repaired. The company has
now decided to recoppor and repaint the
Mexico, which has never been overhauled
since Bhe was built. Her charter to the
company at present running her was
renewed last November for an indefinite
length of time at $200 a day. The Queen,
which is as an off shoe during the time
the vessels are being repaired, will
now take the JeoV place, during the
latter's withdrawal. Afterthat the Afcpjr
ico will resume her place on this route
and the Qveen will go on the Port
land mute again while the Colum
bia is bejng repaired. When the
Columbia is repaired, the Queen will
again take her placo on the sound route
wher ske belongs. It is not determined
yet what will be-dono with tho steam
ship Geo. V. Elder then. It Is probable
that if trade at all justifies she will be
put on the sound route in addition to tha
Queen and Mexico. Seattle Chronicle.
