White commanding. Among her pas
sengers were Mr. Stinley, proprietor
cf Port of Astoria, Jobe Hatfield, no.v
i resident of Umpqua, Captain George
Hesaler of Astoria, all well and favor
ably known as pioneers of Oregon.
The vessell was abandoned at once.
The Indians, eager to plunder, per
mitted the crew to escape, who, after
great suffering and privations, living
on roots and berries, reached the Ore
gon and California trail and thereby
the settlements of the Umpqua. About
this time mines were discovered near
where Jacksonville now is, being the
first found In Oregon.
The Klamath river was entered in
July by the schooner Fairthy, Capt.
Lads, and in going to sea was thrown
upon the sands. The river closed up
completely, remaining in that condi
tion until the following spring, leav
ig the vessel high and dry until the
melting snows of the spring of '51
BWept her to sea. The crew being on
Loard, the vessel was saved.
Chas. Liscorn and n gentleman by
the name of Light owned a very fast
brig called tho Emily Fnrnhnm, and,
having interests at Humboldt bay,
urged Captain Tichenor to Uiko com
mand of her, ho having a stock of
goods in change of a clerk at Union
Town, now Areata, consented making
two voyages to the bay, it being now
October and n good voyage presenting
itself to tho Columbia river, the brig
was put on for tho trip. Tho cholera
1 1 this time mado its appearance in
San Francisco. Win. Woodruff, the
pioneer Jowoler, a gentleman by the,
name of Fordham and Tichenor all
friends and together on the night of
October 12th, were taken by the disc
nse. Woodruff and Fordham died be
fore morning. Tichenor, could just
reach his ship, but there, under tho
care of Liscorn, who had had much ex
rorionce in treating the disease, he
l ecovered.
On the Oth of November Oapt. Tiche
i.or was able to work his vessel to sea
Lound for tho Columbia river with 8!i
passengers. A south gale gave the
vessol quick run. Several of tho pas
sengers were sick with scurvy, produc
ed by their rough exposure and salt
provisions, one Leggot dying the day
before entering tho river. Tho great
er portion of tho passengers were
from tho Western States, nover hav
ing been at sea and opposed to the
burying of n person at sea, the body
was therefore retained for burial on
land which was dono at Astoria.

The weather was very stormy with
continous rains. Capt. Tichenor re
entered his vessel immediately at the
Custom House and requested Lieuten
ant Adair to go on board and urge the
puHiengera to ascend tho river at on e
in order to secure the benefits
of the Donation Act of Congress
which expired on the 15th of Decem
ber. I860, a it would be impoaoible
for the veasel to ascend the river be
fore the northwest winds set in in the
spring. All were satisfied and render
ed up their receipts save one he only
refusing prompted by the collectors
brother-in-law, John Anderson, who
had informedthem that he could force
the vessel to board thorn nil winter oi
refund their passage money, there
fore the detention of the one receipt.
The Captain had generously given all
those which were short of funds from
$5 to $10 each, to enable them to get
up the river, and sold his own boat to
theni at a groat sacrifice to himself.
All had publicly stated at Astoria, the
greut kindness and care of the Cap
tain for the sick during passage and no
ill feeling existed toward him person
ally, tho passengers believing their
action could do tho Captain no injury
uy seizing the vessel, he however
thought and believed otherwise, as
the sequel proved. The vessel has
now been in port over two weeks, and
ready for sea, with a few passengers
who had shipped and were bound for
Humboldt Hay, among whom were
Arthur and Elins Graham, of the Clear
Ijake party; beforo spoken of ns hav
ing been prisoners on board the U. S.
ship Savanna.
The vessel being now nearly ready
for sea, the Capt had his boat manned
and pulled to upper Astoria, at which
place the Custom House was then lo
cated. Arriving there, no collector oi
other person could bo found around
tho building. The only persons seen
were Messrs. Leonard and Green, now
wealthy gentlemen residing at Port
land, Oregon, who were at that time
pioneer merchants of Astoria. They
could give no information regarding
the collector. After an interval of
over an hour, tho collector and somo
persons claiming to be oflkinls, and
some of the passengers of the Emily
Farnham made their appearance.
The Captain demanded his papers
(nil of which had been left with col
lector when the ship was first enter
ed) and the collector said ho could
have them shortly. Wniting some time
the papers were again denmnded, and
now all being arranged by tho collec
tor and the passengers, attorney with
them, packed nnd newly fledged court
tho collector responded to tho demand
for the papers that they could not be
given. Tho Captain demanded them
again stating that his boat nnd
Then East
crew were retained on board of the!
ship and that their detention was un
lawful. The collector then declared
that neither he, the Captain's boat or
ship could go to sea. The Captain
stepped out of the Custom House sang
out to Mr. Nolan the second mate in
charge of the boat, "man the boat, pull
alongside the ship, and say to Mr.
Tobcr (first officer) to heave up, drop
down to Point Adams, come to and
await further orders then turning to
the collector, said "Sir if you cannot
detain the bont you cannot the ship".
H is unnc.'eswny to state that the or
ders of the captain were obeyed.
Keturnlng to the collector's room,
.seventeen processes were served upon
the Captain who waited with much im
patience the farce being enacted with
n bogus court organized for the spe
jial occasion. The Captain told the
;ollector and Court they at their con
venience could go to the warmest place
known df", and that "he would go to
aea papers or no papers" and proceed
ed at once for lower Astoria. There
being no roud or trail at that time, the
shore had to be followed over and und
er logs fallen and precipitated, down
the bluff covered with green slinio,
that when arriving , his clothing was
miiied. Night had set in and no boat
The schooner Urania's,boat fortunate
ly was ashore with the captain who
agreed to have Captain Tichenor put
on board his vessel. After much de
tentiou on. board the Urania the boat
finally started reaching tho brig about
11 p. m. five miles distant from the
schooner. The first officer informed
the Captain that he had sent the whnle
boat for him, which in darkness had
missed him; it soon returned with the
tidings that a government boat filleJ
with soldiers was on its way for the
Hrig. Orders were immediately given
to hoist in and lash boat, get the six
poundcr on the trunk and double shot
it to string along both water way six-
pound shot, all of which were obeyed
in a very short time. The erew were
called aft and addressed and all re
sponsibility assumed by the Captain
Mr. Liscomb one of tho ovyncrs came
to the captain and requested hint not
to resist the collector. Tho Captain
replied at once. "Do not utter another
word or I will slap you in irons as I
am now owner and master, and shall
remain such until I return this vessel
to all the owners in San Francisco."
Orders wero given Mr. Taber (first
officer) to take charge of the deck and
report tho approach of any boat. It
was not long before word was passed
"a boat in starboard quarter." The
captain came immediately and hailed
"What boat is that?" The reply was
'It is my boat," The Captain pang
out to bring the portfiro from the gal
ly, replying to the boat that it would
not bo a boat long without a more ci
vil answer. The boat then replied,
' It is tho collector's boat." Tho Cap
tain said, "You arc the one I wan: as
you have mado all the troublo" and or
dered the gangway ladder to be put
in tho starboard waist, and to stand
by and give tho boat a line, all of
which was dono quickly. Tho Captain
3prang into the main rigging with
cocked revolver. In an instant an officer
sprang on deck with a drawn saber
"Disarm him" rang from the cap
tain a soldier was getting over the
rail. Tho word camo again "Cut a
way gang ladders and wharp" and at
the samo instant orders wero issued to
tho crew All soldiers "to present"
all muskets. They wero at once point
ed at Captain Tichenor's breast not
moro than twelvo feet distant. His
six-shooter was pointed at the collec
tor's head and at tho same time, he
said to tho collector, "Say fire, and I
, will blow your brains Mast Head hUh
J This word "fire" was not given which
.was fortunate as not one of that boa'r
I crew would have escaped. She vo ill'
have been sunk instantly with the six
pound shot. Ladder and lino bet ig
lout, tho boat drifted off and astern us
la strong flood tide was setting mi, a
strong wind from tho northwest,
causing very rough water. It wis a
very disagreeable cold night. The
poor soldiers suffered. Their leeth
chattered so that they could bo Heard
on deck. As the boat drifted off, tho
collector called on Captain Wood, the
olllcer on bo.trd to "Hnil" Captain
White of tho Pilot boat Mary Taylor
when he came from Hankers Hay in
the morning to take the brig up to
Astoria and inooro her under the' guns
of Ft George and to nend up a signal
for that purpose. Tho Captain of the
brig replied "You uro a fool iih no sig
nals go aloft without my order and
I have command of thin vcusel."

After hearing the cackling of a
Pandon hen that had laid a lemarkable
sized egg that measured G'.i x li,
inches comes iiow a Pistol rUer mil
let and claims the championship for
that kind of industry. Thii office re
ceived an egg lust eveninir the nroiluct
of a Brown Leghorn pullet, owned by
Mrs. Win. Creek that measured 61
inches pround the small way and 8 in
ches the largest way. This hen evi
dently started out to beat the Bandon
Lou as this one is the second excep
tionally large one she has laid but her
average daily egg is almost twice the
size of ait oid'nnry hens egg
From the .innssuming nniiearnree
of this little hen when she looked up
on this manuth egg, would indicate
that with a l'ttle effort on her nart
she couid Mill do better if i! was neces
sary, to hold the championship.

trip but they do not care to take it
over again.

Somo two weeks ago a panther jump
ed at a little girl in the Male creek-
country up Rogue river. Tho cries of
tho child brought its parents who were
working nearby, and thoy drove the
animal away. A boy was sent to tho
house for a gun, and in looking for
the varmint where it had hidden, it
suddenly sprang from the brush at the
girls mother, and only a well direct
ed shot from tho riflo in the hands of
her husband savod her from its claws
it dropping dead at her feet.
