On December 17th, 1835, the pupils
in Mrs. Martin's room in the Court

exercise, it being the 78th anniversary
of the birth of our greatest living

words in behalf of tho oppressed,
and now that we have learned many
of them ourselves, wo feel almost as
though we knew the writer person

we asked two of of our number Katie,
and Willie McKean, to ptucil a

preface to one of his lectures here
last winter, that we ware to be con
gratulated upon onr grand and beau
tiful scenery. He thought where
nature had been so liberal iu sur
rounding us with so much that was
elevating and inspiring, the people
could not but be better for such sur
roundings. Still we have much of wickedness
and eriws here as elsewhere, as well
ns much of all that is goad and re
fined. Our schools and ohurchea are a
pride- to our little city. Our popula

We have two fine school houses,

feature is that thero is not one gen
tleinau teacher in the whole corps of
teachers, and has not been for three

I am sure you would admire our
fine clim ite. The summers are per

'THE SILVER QUESTION.
How the U. S. Government Plays Into the
Hands of the Bondholders as
Against the People.
The following provision is found in
section 369A of the Bevised St antes:
Tho coin paid for duties on imported
goods shall be net apart as a special f nud,
and shall be applied :i3 fol.ejra: First,
to tho payment, in coin, of the interest
on tho bonds and notes of tho Uaited
States; second, to tho purchase or pay
ment of one per cent of tho entiru debt
of the United States, to be made within
each fiscal year, which is to be set apart
as a sinking f and, nud tbe interest of
which shall in like manner be applied to
tho purchase or payment of tho public
debt, as the secretary of the treasury
shall from time to tim9 direct: third, the
residue to ba paid into tho treasury.
Secretary Manning, like Secretary
McCulloch before him, has systemati
cally, notoriously nud defiantly dis
obeyed and nullified tho provisions of
this section. In the first place, says the
Post Intelligencer, the coin paid for
duties on imported goods has not
bean set,apart as provided; a large
percentage of the coin paid for duties
has been silver, yet the interest on
the bonds has been paid entirely in
gold. In the second place tho fund
has not bsea applied to the purchase
and payment ot the public
debt as the law distinctly re
quires. On the contrary, no call for
bonds was issued by the tecretary of
the treasury between October 1884,
and December 29th, 1835. In that
time a balance of S2U8.000.000 was al
lowed to accumulate in the treasury.
Prior to the advent of Secretary Mc
Culloch, the practice was to call
bonds whenever the available balance
was S145.000.000 to S150,000,000. that
amount being deemed fully sufficient
toseenre the public credit. Under
McCulloch and Mauuiug, however,
the fnnds have been allowed to ac
cumulate in defiance of the law, and
the government has been compelled
to pay interest on bonds while the
funds for their cancellation wore ly
ing idle in the treasury. A more
gross and open nullification of a law
can scarcely bo imagined. It makes
no difference whether the law is right
or wrong, wise or uuwise.a secretary of
t io treasury has no right fo refuse to
obey it It is his duty to execute the
laws as he finds them, not to decide
whether congress kuew what it was
about when it passed them.

A Scarce Commodity When Needed.
The editor of this paper has .been
questioned as to why ho don't pre
pare an article on the silver question.
The reason in short, is that ho don't
care to expose his ignorance on tho
subject. Other editors are doiug
that right along, and bo does uot
care to swell the list. What he does
know about silver, is that with nil
the alleged excessive coinage of silver
dollars, they are a very scarce com
modity under two interesting circum
stances, first when a bill is presented
to bo paid, and second when one pre
sents a bill for payment. Our cry is

Something thnt Directly Concerns
Interests of Astoria.
The Loudon Shipping Gazette of
December 18, 18S5, under the head
ing of ".Risks from Colombia Biver,"
The following is an extract from a
letter received by the comraitee of
Lloyd's from tho secretary of the
board of marine underwriters, at San
Fraucisco, dated November 9th: ''At
a recent meeting of this board, letters
were read from our surveyors on tho
Columbia river, located at Portland
and Astoria. These letters were in
reply to enquiries addressed to them
as to the probable causes ot the fre
quent trouble and losses on the risks
from the Columbia river fo Europe.
By the direction of the board, I beg
leave to call your attention briefly
to the substance of these letters.
Onr informants think that in many
cases the surveys on vessels are
not sufficiently strict, especially on
the poorer class of vessels ot which
there are a considerable number,
especially soft wood ships. A further
difficulty arises with the larger vessel?,
as they finished loading on tho way
down by lighters, or nt Astoria, and
uuiessu sharp look-out is kept (as is
done when loading under our survey
ors), the vessels are given mora than
they should have, ami are very likely
deeper than their snrvey chIIs fnr, ns
extra expense falls on a ship if the
lighter has to carry back a portion or
her load. Furthermore, we have had
cases where confusion has arisen on
the question of draught, that in salt
water being claimed, while the other
party claims that draught at Astoria
was intended. I would also call your
attention to the report of our surveyor
at Astoria, that all large ships (which
Gnish nt Astoria) load at the wharf
or the-Oregoa K lilroad and Naviga
tion company, where at fpring tides
they iio aground at low water.
Failed to Note the Exception.
Sqniro Pigg3, a Mississippi lawyer,
in the conduct of his cases is so given
to "demurring" aud "filing bills of ex
ceptions" tjiat he is known all over
his judicial district as "Old Demur
rer". During a recent trial he filed
no less than seventeen exceptions to
the rulings of the court. Finally, the
judge lost patience with him, and
charged him with unprofessional con
duct, aud refused to allow him to pro
ceed further as an attorney in the
case. "D irn sioh anth?r court as
this," said the squire, whereupon the
judge fined him S10 for ajntempt.
"Contempt! exclaimed the squire.
"Yes, sir, for contempt of this court,"
replied the judgo. "But, judge, I
said noth ng of this court that could
be construed aq contempt." "You did
sir." "What did I say, may it please
yonr honor?" "You said, sir, 'darn
this court.'" "You are mistaken,
judge, and failed to note my excep
