Eegarding Vacant Government Land.
The many inquiries being re
ceived at the land office at Ore
gon City for information in regard
to locality and character of public
lands m Oregon, bays the ure
gonian, warrant the publication
of the following) statement, which
is furnished by the receiver, Mr.
The Oregon City land district
extends to the southern line of
township 13 south, to township 8
east, the Columbia river on the
north, and the Pacific ocean' on
the west. South of this is the
Roseburg district, extending to
the state line.
No vacant lands arc found in
the Willamette valley proper, but
along the foothills, on either side,
and on the western slope of the
coast range. In the counties of
Clatsop and Columbia, the vacant
lands are found back from the
Columbia river, from one to five
miles. AH lands along the Neha-
lem river are entered from half a
mile to two miles back. These
lands are, or have been, covered
with a heavy growth of timber.
In some sections forest fires
have burned the timber, and only
the dead .trees and an undergrowth
remains to be cleared away in or
der to fit the land for cultivation.
These, as all lands in western Ore
gon, are well watered, and in many
localities may bo found good agri
cultural lands. The general de
scription of'ditTerent counties in
the state contained in circulars is
sued by the board of trade, may be
accepted as correct descriptions of
the public lands."
The following is a reasonably
accurate estimate of the vacant
lands in each of the counties of
Donglas .. 200,000
Josephine , 140,000
Intending settlers can obtain in
formation as to the status of any
reasonable quantity of lands by
corresponding with the land office,
free of charge, but the business
will not permit descriptions of
whole townships as the number of
demands for such information is
unlimited. A directory for west
em Oregon and Washington con

to vacant lands and how to pro

A Haytian Massacre.
New York, March 10. The
World to-morrow will contain the
follewing: A steamer arrived at
this port yesterday, bringing news
or a Diooay oattie between Legit
ime's and Hippolyte's forces, and
a massacre by th'e victors. Cap
tain Frazer brought a copy of La
JPalrie, the Hippolyte organ, pub
lished February 23, at Gonaives,
containing the following account
of the battle and of the massacre
at Grand Saline:
The Hippolyte forces in this city
were commanded by Generals
Mom Point and Jean Meseraus.
Legitirae's army began the attack
on the ontposts early in February.
They were repulsed several times,
but finallv succeedod in carrying
them, and a few days later were
masters ot the city, and General
Meseraus' sword. Legitime's men
were so elated over their success
that they immediately began to
pillage the town. Drunke"n sol
diers shot one of the prisoners for
some trifling matter. This was a
signal for a general outbreak on
the part of the soldiers. They
rushed at the prisoners, shooting
and stabbing them right and left,
the prisoners begging hard and
piteously for mercy, but their cries
were laughed at'and the killing
went on, quarter being allowed to
none. Never before had such a
pitable sight been presented. The
murdered men lay huddled about
in scores. Some were frightfully
hacked and mutilated, many of the
blood frenzied soldiers having run
amuck even among the corpses,
plunging the swords again and
again into the bodies of the slain.
General Mescran tried to stay
the' slaughter, but the soldiers
laughed at' him and warned him
not to interfere if he wished to
live. When a lack of victims
stayed the butehers they robbed
the dead and looted and burned
the town. Nearly the whole place
says La JPatrie, is in ruins. Cap
tain r raser thinks the city must
have been burned between Febru
ary 23 and March 1.

The Sea's Secret.
Nearly five years ago the steam
ship Germania of the Lloyd line
departed from Hague, bound for
New York. On board were over
1,000 passengers and a highly
valuable cargo. The steamship
never reached port. No tidings
of her were ever heard, and
although given up for lost years
ago the particulars of her fate
were never known.
Last Friday afternoon, while
walking along the beach of "Has
ser's Haven," south of Melbourne,
Mr. Frank P. Hassler found a
wine bottle lying on the sands.
It was almost covered with bar
nacles and moss. On picking it
up ho found it had been securely
corked. The neck of the bottle
was broken off and the papers
withdrawn. One was a blank bill
lading of the steamship Germania,
Lloyd line, printed in German.
The other paper was simply brown
wrapping paper, one side of which
was covered with writing in Ger
man, the characters being almost
illegible. After much trouble
the following translation was
The steamship Germania is on
fire and sinking. Gale blowing
and all boats swamped. All hope
