A VP.P.Y IMPORTANT MATTER.
One day this week a young mer
chant of this city, who was married
about two years ago by an ex-minister
of a Portland congregation,
happened to be reading the laws of
Oregon, and stumbled on the chapter
relating to marriages. The person
who solemnized his marriage had for
years been a minister of the gospel,
but had retired sometime before the
marriage took place, and since then
has not been connected with any
m or minister. Section 4 of chaptoi
lty of minister. Section -i of chanter
Si, oi the Oregon code, reads: ''Mar
riages may be solemnized by any
minister or priest of anv church or
congregation in the state, anywhere
within the state, and by any judicial
officer of the state, anywhere within
his jurisdiction." The merchant be
gan to doubt whether his marriage
was legal and consulted one of the
best lawyers in the state, who ad
vised him to go through the cere
mony again. The lawyers' construc
tion of the law is, that a minister
must bo in charge of some congrega
tion or church in order to legally
bind a couple in marriage. To give
an instauce: So long as Rev. J. A.
Gray was minister of the Baptist
church here, he could legally pro
nounce the marriage ceremony any.
where in the state, but whon he left
tho ministry and engaged in law,
such legal authority ceased. Orego

REPORTED LOSS OF THE 'TiEDA".
It was reported from Portland last
evening just before the telegrapli of
fice closed that the steamer litda was
abandoned at sea. Further inquiry
elicited only a statement that she -was
abandoned south of Coos Bay. It
was also stated that the captain and
two men who had tried to make the
shore in a small boat were lost.
In the absence of any definite in
formation her fate can only be a mat
ter of surmise. She has been plying
between here nnd San Fraucisco ever
since she was built at Coos bay and
had a profitable trade. She usually
left here lumber laden and camo up
with freight. She left here last Sun
day with a heavy load; railroad iron
in her hold and a deck load of lumber.
There has been heavy weather
throughout the week and the suppo
sition is that after beating down as
far as Coos bay the crew were obliged
to abandon her.
Capt Hailey was well known iu As
toria and further news will be awaited

Mrs. James Brown Potter read a beau
tiful and striking poem by Georco It
Sims, an English writer, at the charit
able entertainment at Secretary "Whit
ney's residence on tho 19th instant. We
publish this poem in full to-day in order
that certain prudish people who have
fancied that they were shocked on hear
ing the poem read may peruse it and bo
assured that there was nothing improper
either in tho words or tone of it. We
have heard " 'Ostler Joe" called 'Swin
burnian" in character, but such a refer
ence to it would be made only by persons
who cither never read this poem or else
never read Swinburne. If tho object of
a public reading be not to put a lot of
stupid people to sleep, but to produce a
dramatic effect, then Mrs. Potter exer
cised n correct and praiseworthy judgment
in her selection of this poe"m:
I stood at eve, as the sun went down, by a
grave where a woman lies,
Who lured men's souls to the shores of sin
with the light of her wanton eyes;
Who sang the song that the siren Bang on
the treacherous Lurley height,
Whose face was as fair as a Summer day
aud whose heart was as black as night.
Yet a blossom I fain would pluck to-day
from the garden abc-j her dust
Not the Iaugourous lily of soulless sin nor
the bloodred rose of lust;
But a sweet whito blossom of holy love,
that grew in the one green spot
In tho arid desert of Phryne's life, where
all was parched and hot.
In the Summer, when the meadows wcro
aglow with blue nnd red,
Joe, the 'ostler of the Magpie, and fair
Annie Smith were wed;
Plump was Annie, plump and pretty, with
a cheek as white as snow
He was anything but handsome, wa9 tho
Magpie 'ostler, Joe.
Bat he won the winsome lassie. They'd a
cottage and a cow,
And her matronhood sat light ou the vil
lage beaaty's brow;
Sped tho months and came a baby such
a blae-oyed baby boy!
Joe was working in tho stables, when they
told him of his joy.
He was nibbing down tho horses, nnd he
gave them then nnd there
All a special feed of clover, just in honor
of tho heir.
It had been his great ambition, ::ud he
told tho horses so,
Thai tho Fates would send a baby who
might boar tho name of Joe.
Little Joe, the child was christened, and
like babies, grew apace;
He'd his mother's eyes of azure and hia
Swift the happy years went over, years of j
Lore was lord of that small cottage, nnd
the torapest passed them by.
Passed them by for years, then swiftly-
burst in fury o'er their home. "
Down the lane by Annie's coltage chnuced
a gentleman to roam;
Thrice ho came, and s.iw her sitting by
the window with her child,
Aud ho nodded to tho babv. and the baby
laughed and smiicd.
So gigig&km " ""' Joe
- ... --- - J-.W..J ...ui... hj -..

And one day he ran and caught him, aud ;
And the baby Joi had prayed for brought
about the mother's sin. "
,-p . . iU, ,. ., . . ,
Twas but tua same old wretched story
mat tor ages uarus navo sung,
Of the Babylonian wonders aud the joy !
that in them lies. '
Annie listened and wjis tempted; Ehewas
tempted and she fell,
As the angels fell from heaven to the
blackest depths of hell;
She was promised wealth and splendor
and a life of guilty sloth,
Finding that, which blurred forever all i
the story of Ins life,
She had left a silly letter -through the
rml mwi i,fl LR:
cruel scrawl ha bpelt;
Then be sought the lonely bedroom, joined
his homy hands and knelt.
'Now, O Tiord, O God, forgiva her. for
sho ain't to blame!" he cried;
'For I owt t'a seen her trouble, nnd 'agone
awny and died.
Why, o wench like her God blus her I
'twasn't likely as her'd rest
With that bonny head forever on tf 'ost-

ons like with Thee."
Ne'er a line came to the cottage from the
woman who had flown;
Joe, the baby, died that winter, and the
man was'left alone.
Ne'er a bitter word ho uttered, but in sil
ence kissed tho rod.
Saving what he told the horses, saving
what he told his God.
Far away in mighty London rosy the
woman into fame,
For her beauty won men's homage, and
sho prospered in her shame:
Quick fiom lord to lord she flitted, higher
still each prize she won.
And her rivals paled Inside her us the
ntars beside the sun.
Nei.t she made the siasjo her market, and
she dragged Art's temple down
To tho level of n show-place for the out
casts of tho town,
And tho kisses she had given to poor
'Ostler Joe for nought,
With their gold and costly jewels rich and
titled lovers bought.
Went the years with flying footsteps whilo
the star was at ita hoight;
Then the darkness came on swiftly, and
tho gloaming turned to nisut,
Shattered strength and faded beauty tore
the laurels from her brow;
Of tho thousands who had worshiped
never one came near her now.
Broken down in health and fortune, men
forgot her very name,
Till the news that sho was dying woke the
echoes of her fame;
And the papers in their gossip, mentioned
how an "actress" lay
Sick to death in humble lodgings, grow
ing weaker every day.
One there was who read the story in a
far-off country place,
And that night the dying woman woke
and looked upon his face.
Once again the strong arm3 clasp her that
had clasned her long ago,
And the wearv head lay pillowed on the
breast of TJatler Joe,
All the past had he forgotten, all the sor
row and the shame;
He had found her sick and lonely, and
his wife ho now could claim.
Since tho grand folks who had known her
one and all had slunk away,
Ho could clasp his long-lost darling, and
no man would say him nay.
In his arms doath found her lying, in his
arms her spirit fled;
And his tears came down in torrents as he
knelt beside her dead.
Never once his love had faltered through
her base unhallowed life;
And tho stone above her ashes bears the
honored unme of wife.
That's the blossom I fain would pluck to
day from the garden above her dust;
Not tho languorous lily of soulless sin nor
the bloodred rose of last;
But n sweet white blossom of holy love
that grew in the one green spot
In the arid desert of Phyrrte's life, where
all was parched and'hot.
CANCELLATION OF 3IAIL CONTRACTS.
Four years ago next July a contract
for carrying mail between New Or
leans and Port Eads was let for four
yeara to a man by the name of Mc
Ginneas, of Alexandria La. The ser
vice required was three round trip3 per
week, and the compensation $11,000.
Sometime thereafter the service was
doubled to six trips per week, and the
compensation increased in proportion
to 22,000 a year. In October Mc
Ginnes3 gave up tho business to his
rival, the Bed River and Coast Line
Steamboat company, on stipulation
that McGinness should assign his mail
contract to tho Red River company.
This was done with the knowledge and
consent of the postoffice department
On Dec. 22nd, however, a fast new
steamboat line was started as a rival
to the Red River company, and the
owners came to Washington and of
fered to perform the service for 12,000
a year. The postmaster-general, with
a view to economy cancelled the orig
inal contract and made a new one
with tho new company, at the reduced
price. The old contractors appealed,
but tho postoffice department decided
that Yila3 had tho authority to make
such changes at his discretion. Un
der this decision he can cancel every
contract in existence, if he chooses,
and the only course a contractor ha3
is to seek a writ of quo warranto to
compel Vilas to carry out the obliga
tions of the government. Some of the
best lawyers in Washington have been
consulted, and are of the opinion that
the act was illegal, and that the con
tractors can recover in the courts.
Suit will be brought, and the econo-
? of Yila3 will undoubtedly result
