The odor arising from the decayed planks being torn up on Third street is very unpleasant, especially at night, and is liable to breed disease. Tlte commission of J. E. Selig as census enumerator for the first prc cjnet of Astoria has been received and lie will commence his duties next Monday. Steamer travel between Portland and San Francisco is rather light at present, but ovcrlaud busiuessis brisk, and passenger trains are well loaded oven day. In the police court, yesterday, before .ludgc JcwetL, two men were arraigned f.r lighting and the trial resulted in one lcing discharged, and the other wa- fined $20. There have been unmerous visitors to see the tiny infant described in Tuesday's Astorian as 'Diminutive Humanity, which weighed at birth one pound and two ounces. Lost night CapL McCarty, and officers Larsen and Beaslcy brought in four men, who had evidently been interviewed by candidates, and had more "tanglefoot' aboard than was necessary for correct navigation. Yesterday artentoou Miss Levings and another vouug ladv were horse back riding on West Ninth street, when the former's horse became unruly and threw the fair rider. Fortunately she was not seriously injured, only shaken up rather too rudely for comfort The funeral of the infant child of Fred Oberg took place yesterday af ternoon from Surpreuaut's undertak ing iarlors.

In Justice May's court yesterday Emit Jessien made complaint against George Brown for robbing him of a rifle and four salmon, but when the accused was brought into court, it was found that he was the wrong man and not the guilty party. The latter is being searched for. aud if caught will be duly tried. Another man is happy, for he can stand on United Stales soil and claim it as his own for Uncle Sam has given it to him. The man is Charles Oechs ner. and the land is the west half of southeast quarter, northeast quarter of southwest quarter, and southeast quarterof northwest quarter of section 10.T6X.K0W. Ascertain from the street superin tendent what is the proper number for your house or place of busiuess, and" have it put on at once. Free letter delivery is furnished only in a city where the houses are numbered, and this alone should be a sufficient reason why every building should be numbered at once. Another tract of land is now on the market, the plat having been duly filed yesterday by Frank Patton, trustee. It is called "Seal Bock Beach. aud consists of 4S blocks, con taining S$7 lots, and is on the beach about five miles ImjIow Seaside. The owners are A. 11. Kanaga, II. C. Thompson and IL "V.

Peter "Wilson severed the cord that bound him to the King of Sweden, aud all three signed their first papers of enrollment in the ranks of the people of this broad land, over whom royalty holds no dominion. One of Astoria's fair young ladies carries her right hand in a sling, the result of an accidental slip of a pair of sharp scissors, which peuetrated the hand, and will render it inopera tive for awhile. The accident is not serious enough to destroy the useful Bess of the hand or prevent the young lady from giving it away at some fu ture time, should she feel so disposed. The funeral of tlie late James P. Thompson will be attended from Sarprenant's undertaking room at 11 o'clock this morning, and half an hour later, the steamer Electric will leave "Wilson and Fisher's wharf for Clatsop, where the interment will take place.

Tho rodent is canght in an ordinary oval trap, the bottom of which is covered with tin. One wire, connected with a dynamo, is fastened to the tin lining of the trap and another is thrust into the prisoner's celL The well known pro pensity of a caged rat to do battle as serts itself and he seizes the wire be tween his teeth. In doing so he makes the mistake ofjlm life. The circuit is completed, his jaws close on tho wire with a death grip, and without a squeak, and almost without a quiver, he passes into a state of eternal des uetude. Dyspepsia, indigestion, sick headache and that tired teeling are cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla, winch tones the stomach, promotes healthy digestion, creates an appetite, cures sick headache and builds up the whole system.

It will be remembered that Mr. Young left this city for England last March, in connection with his salmon business, and after making satisfactory arrangements returned. He reports somo dissatisfac tion among English dealers in consequence of alleged bad condition of some parcels of salmon from various sources, principally owing to weakness of contracts for delivery. The result is that nearly every parcel is turned over to arbitrators, who often make awards favoring the purchaser. Mr. Young thinks the packers of this coast should see that they havo representatives there to look after their interests, otherwise they will be often losers. USI-FUI. rc-TOKMA.TION. Tilbury Fox, H.

Veterans of the Civil War. As a part of the census of the people to bo taken during the month of June Bpecial provision has been made by congress for ascertaining the names of surviving soldiers, sailors, and marines who were mustered into the service of the United States during the war of the rebellion, aud of the widows of soldiers, sailors, and marines who havo died. In connection with this special census of veterans the organization or vessel in which they served, tho term of service in each case, and present residence will bo taken by the census enumerators. In the case of widows, information re garding the service of their deceased husbands is also required. Tho importance of accurate state ments concerning tho military record of each participant m tho late war should not bo underestimated. It should bo tho duty moreover of every veteran soldier or sailor to see that the enumerator is placed in possession of the necsssary information concerning his own service. If he cannot bo at home when the enumerator calls he should leave a proper memorandum in tha hands of his wife or other mem ber of his household, so that the work of tho census may not be delayed, and also that there may be no doubt as to the accuracy of tho statement concern ing his service which may be given to the census enumerator. That there may be no question as to the points to be covered by this memorandum, it may be well to state that the special inquiries to bo mado concerning veterans of the civil war include the name, the company, and the regiment or vessel in which they served, their late rank, the dates of enlistment and discharge, the length of service in years, months, and days, and their present post-office address. Where a soldier or sailor re-enlisted or served in more than ono organization or vessel, ho should be very careful to givo tho term of service in each in stance, and to cover each enlistment In giving the organization care should be taken to distinguish the arm of tho service, as infantry, cavalry, etc, and if a person served under an assumed name, his statement should be made to cover both the name under which he served and tho true name by which hois now known. Veterans of the war generally will recognize and appreciate the value of this special census to them, and they should aid tho census enumerators in getting true statements in every way possible. Without their co-operation correct results cannot be reached. This personal appeal is made to them, therefore, iu the hope that their atten tion may be specially directed to the importance ot this work and tho neces sary information may be promptly supplied to tho census enumerator when he calls somo time during the month of June.

A large and fashionable audience last eveuiug at the opera house, greeted W. A. Brady and his excellent company iu the presentation of Boucicault's five-act drama ot "After Dark." The company brought with them their own scenery which was appro priate, but the tank scene was below the average of that class. Tho cast was good and while all did well, especial praise is due to Brady as "Old Tom," and Miss Laura Biggar as "Eliza." The unpopnlar part of villain was well rendered by Frank Richardson, while J. S. Marble as "Dicey Morris," his ''junior partner," was also good. The railroad liutnel scene in the fourth act was uncommonly good and realistic. The entire performance was well worthy of the liberal patronage it received. JEpocli.

No matter what trade or profession you choose you will easily detect the men o original ideas; the men who push themselves and the town they live in ahead; men who are a credit to their profession and the community they live in: but you arc also sure to find the imitators, those who are at the rear end of the proces sion, men who never have an original, bright thought or do an original, bright act. Tflet alone they will exist on what liberal, unsuspecting people permit themselves to be rob bed of; but no SMoner does the original, enterprising man make a move, and the imitat ing tail-ender tries to benefit by his superior's genius.
