The following additional particulars
have been obtained of the nre on the
steamer Gazelle, which occurred a few
days ago on the Stillaguamlsh river,
ear Florence, in Washington territory.
The steamer met with the accident as
she was effecting a landing at Florence,
between 5 and G o'clock in the afternoon.
By the accident her galley stove was
tipped over setting fire to the cabin,
winch was destroyed. The forward deck
was also somewhat burned, othorwise
the vessel is yet intact. After the acci
dent she sank, the stern of the vessel
being in the water, and only the bow
projecting. At the time she sank she
had on board a large cargo of lumber
from Utsalady. and was putting in at
Florence for an additional cargo of
shingles. No lives were lost, but the car
go and boat are a total loss, except ciotu
ine' and cabin furniture. Mrs. . Olney
and children, who were on board, had lo
jump out into the mud and water to
save themselves. The Gazelle has been
an unfortunate boat ever since it was
taken over from the Columbia river,

'Terms of endearment" adn.it of a

show how much they think of a man by
abusing him. Others do it from habit.

The I in the above specimen does not
seem to be so prominent us the nose, but
the "we" is evidently only a cloak or
mask for the personality behind it.
In Texas, however, the proudest dream
for the I is realized. One editor "keeps
it in motion" from the beginning to the
end of his paragraph. In taking charge
of his new paper, he says that he wishes
to state that he hasn't done it with a view
of amasing a fortune, "for, having been
engaged in teaching school for the last
sixteen yeurs, I have saved a pile, most of
which I "have invested in personal proier

whether to become a mule driver or an

An Illinois editor does not "have the
I," at least not very bad, but he 1ms the
courage of his opinion about rsomo whelp
in human form' who "on Thursday even
ing alKiut G o'clock attacked us a few
steps from our residence. The coward
concealed himself in the alley aud threw
two btoncs, not missing us ten inches.
The man who did it isono of the blackest
scoundrels at heart on earth, aud deserves
a bullet through his brain."
A Virginia editor has learned of a
"hypocrite who talks of riding us on n
rail. Why does not this man come to us
to do his talking? If he still persists in
abusing us behind our back wo shall be
compelled to let the publie know his
namo and acquaint them with some of
the act3 of his life."
The editor of the Dry Wahh. Arizona,
Lyre says: "We begin with this issue to
corral news for the Ljrr and we intend
to make things hum. We expect to please
all sensible people. As for cranks and
bullies, we give a general notice that the
editor of the Lyiv doesn't intend to get
licked, and is equally ready lo put up his
hands or his weapon to defend his rights.
A line of subscribers will be formed at
our counting-room to-morrow morniug."
"If the Lord is willing, andmothing
happens," says a Texas editor. "The ed
itor of the iletxtld will givo the road of
which ho is overseer a thorough working.
We expect to work tho road until we get
it in a'good condition, and if the paper
fails to get out next week our readers
can set it down that wawill have a good
road if we don't get out the paper."
A Salt Lake City Mormon editor says
that the unknown woman killed hero
three months ago "proves to be one of
the wives of the editor of this paper."
A Texas editor says: ""We return our
heartfelt thanks to the absent fair friend
who sent wishes for happy Christmas and
a merry New Year together with n beau
tiful white cravat typical of her purity
and innocence. We will ever cherish her
in our memory as one of the purest aud
noblest of earth's inhabitants." In re
turn he wants to be allowed to wish her
'the quintessence of a calm and happy
life," "a robe of the richest white to
mantle thy lovely form when earth -hall
know you no more,'' "a celestial harp of
the sw'ettest potes played by thy skillful
hands greeting the ears of seraphs with
new aud rapturous delight each golden
morning through all eternity."
The Arizona editor again: "We were
in Al Blodgett's saloon this week, giving
our view on Cleveland's cabinet, and in
other reaects minding our business,
when Gringo Baker came in and said we
wero a liar. Knowing him to bo drunk,
and therefore helpless, we darted out of
the saloon and ran to our office with as
much celerity as our game leg would al
low, and locked ourselves in our sanctum.
Had we not thus nobly refrained from
combat we would soon have wiped the
floor with Gringo Baker. And yet we
understand that he calls ua a red-nosed
coward. We are quite content to be
misunderstood by such men, and we reit

The "we" is a great institution.
There were only three petitions in cir
culation yesterday. If there is one thing
in this world easier than another, it is to
get a man to sign a petition. The very
fact of handing him the petition to sign
implies that he is of considerable import
ance. Besides it doesn't cost anything.
Then, again, you don't like to refuse a
Not only that but if you don't
sign it looks as though you were opposed
to the object of tho petition. And com
mon courtesy suggests that after a man
has gone to "the trouble to hunt you up
the least you can do is to sign, especially
if he asks you if you won't come out and
take something. Tho prevalence of peti
tions reminds the writer of a joke that
was played on Gen. Joe Hamilton, attor
ney general of California, several years
ago. The general was always signing a
petitien: it didn't mako any difference
if it was to pardon a convict or make an
appropriation, or go after the city coun
cil, or remove 11 nuisance, or reinstate a
policeman, or appoint or confirm or re
ject, it was all the same; Joe's signature
could always be counted on.
So some of bis friends in Sacramento
got up a petition one day and after gel
ing it numerously signed look it to the
office of tho attorney general. Joe was
there and after adjusting his glass over
hisonoeye, and humming and hawing
for a minute, ho signed it. A few days
after the governor of the state sent for
him and in aTery serious way inquired
aa to what ho meant "by signing that pe
tition." "What petition?" said General
Hamilton, who. for tho life of him.
couldn't remember what petition he j
might have signed last, "why, this,"
said Governor Irwin, producing to the
consternation of the attorney general a
formidable petition, which set forth sun
dry grave charges against "one Jo. Ham
ilton, attorney general of the common
wealth of California," and praying that
a committee of investigation be nt once
appointed to inquire into the matter,
while prominent among tho signatures
was his own. It cured him for n month
of signing petitions, "just to get rid of

It is not difficult to make plain the
causes of the defeat of the river and har
bor bill. There was a strong feeling in
the senate against being compelled to
act upon imxrtant appropriation bills
with so little lime for their proper con
sideration as the delay of the house in
passing them gave the senate: but this
did not interfero with the passage of any
of those measures except this one. which
found opponents among the strongest
advocates of liberal appropriations for
river and harbor improvements, because
of the shape in which the bill came from
the house. The senate was strongly op
posed to such n loose and slip-shod sys
tem of legislation as that attempted in
the house bill, but it is probable that
even this objectionable proposition
would have been reluctantly accepted as
the best that could be done under the
circumstances, as it was favored almost
solidly by the Democratic senators, had
it not been for the active opposition of
Messrs, Miller of New York, and Cullom
of Illinois, the latter being especially well
known as a friend of interior imp'rove
nients. These senators protested effect
ively against the proposed appropriation
of a" "lump"' sum to bo expended bv the
secretary of warupou the public works
nameu in mo river aim naroor aci or
last year, aud managed to stave off by
discussion during the closing hour of
the session the final vote on the pass
gae of the bill. The house bill fixed this
lump sura at $."".000,000. and the senate
commerce committee wanted to raise the
lump to $10,000,000, contending
that this amount was necessary to the
proper continuance of the improvements
m progress. The opposition was led by
Messrs. Miller aud Cullom. Besides their
objectiotis lo any "Innip" appropriations,
they thought that the interests of the
states they represented had lten trilled
with long'enough, and did not propose to
allow large sums to be appropriated for
unknown creeks and unvisitcd harbors
throughout the country, but especially in
the south, while congress, yearafteryear.
declined to construct the Hennepin canal
or make the improvements demanded by
the commerce of Xcw York and the
northwest. In a speech of some length
Senator Cnllcm argued that the esti
mates of the secretary of the treasury
called for bat S,000.000 this year, while
the commerce committee proposed to ap
propriate $10,000,000, aud argued that no
harm would be done by tho failure of
the bill, as the secretary of war yas au
thorized by the act of last year to draw
on the treasury for whatever amount was
necessary to preserve aud keep iu repair
the improvements for which appropria
tions were made last year. The house
committee had investigated the subject
for several weeks, and reported that it
was not necessary or advisable to spend
any money this year upon forty-threo of
the public works named in last year's act.
and yet, under tho proposed "lump" aj
propriation, they would share pro rata
with the other works named in the act.
Mr. Cullom forcibly protested against the
proposed expenditure of 5l0.000.000 with
out information as to the needs of each
locality, without discrimination as to the
necessity for each improvement aud with
out knowing how much each would be
given. Strong speeches acainst the policy
of making an unitemized appropriation
were also made by Messrs. Miller, of Xew
York, Plumb, Merrill and Krye, of the
commerce committee, and the opponents
of tho bill, who had displaced the river
and harbor bill at every opportunity dur
ing the closing hours of the session, suc
ceeded in protracting the discussion un
til it was to.) late for its passage.

There can be no argument as to the
qualities eential to 'a perfect remedy
for the ills arising from a disordered or
inactive condition of the Liver, iStomaelt
and Ilowels. Everyone will admit that it
should be iicrfeetly safe for old and
young of lioth 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 it should
give strength to those organs. It is now
well known that Syrup of Figs- possess
es those qualities in a pre-eminent
degree. W.E. Dement & Co. are agents
