We find that our citizens generally evince a lively interest in the project of building a wharf that shall connect OlyxtpU with deep Water, and as the haunicipal election approaches it is talkrd upon all sides. A wharf, to an nwer the purpose would have to lie alxmt one mile in length, and would cost when completed about #15,000. How are we to obtain it ? It appeal* to us that the only practical way is to elect a Board of Trustees and Mayor who are squarely pledged to cany out the project. If it is a necessity, as in claimed by its supporters, it should l»e paid for out of the town funds. We are informed that several candidates for municipal honors have expressed a willingness to go for a wharf to deep water, if an enabling act can be pot through Congress, and provided money can be borrowed at the rite of ten per cent, per annum interest. These con siderations may be very prudent, and under some circumstances commenda ble, but we fear that if Olympia does not get a wharf until Congress passes an enabling act and the town borrows money at ten per cent, per annum, she will not get it for some time. If the wharf is really a public necessity, some thing that the town must have—and we have shown its importance in a previous article—let ns elect a Board who will premise to build it without any such contingencies. Upon the assessed valuation of last year, one-half the municipal fund raised by the usual tax of five mills would more than pay eighteen per cent, on SIO,OOO, which would build two-thirds of the wharf, and it certainly would not be difficult should that course be thought best to raise the balance—five thousand dollars—by private subscription to bo taken in stock. If it is said that 000 or $20,000 is too much money, that we cannot carry the interest, what shall be said of the wisdom of those leading citizens who talk about a branch rail road, to be built by ourselves, connect ing with the main trunk at Hodgden's, Which would cost at least thirty times as much as' the' proposed wharf. We do not write for the purpose of advocating any special plan for carrying out this project, which seems to be the popular wish. We are willing to leave the details to be determined by the Board of Trustees, but will support only those for that position who are most unequivocally for building a wharf to deep water, without saddling it with difficult or doubtful contingencies. Let the people see to it that those who ride into office on this popular hobby go it barebacked. A SUITABLE CANDIDATE. —Among the names of caddidates for municipal hon ors in the Second ward, we have heard the name of John M. Swan frequently mentioned as Trustee. No man is more intimately conneeted with the trarly history of dympia. Mr. Swan is one of our earliest pioneers, and has contributed the best years of his life towards building up the present town and especially that portion of it bearing his name. Since he is willing to serve, his fellow-citizens should feel proud of having an opportunity to vote for him. If he is sound on the wharf question, as we understand he is, we predict that he will distance all competitors iri the approaching election. WHAT IS FAME? —San Francisco dis patches says that Stephen Mayblell, " the poet laborer" has been lecturing on himself in that city, and incident ally alludes to the fact that both Port land and San Francisco lay claim to the honor of his aspiring genius. If this be true, he is even more fortunate than the poets of old, who were obliged to content themselves with posthumous fame. It is said that— ''Seven Grecian cities strove for Homfer dead, \> hero the living Homer bugged his daitv bread." But fame is more transitoir now, as the draggled 'plumes of Bret Harte, Joaquin Miller, and a score of others prove. MEBCHANT'S TUANBPOBTATIOX CO.—Arti cles of incorporation have bsen filed, in this place, for a company to run a line of steamships between the Sound ports and San Praircise'o. Principal office, Olympia; capital stoek SIOO,OOO, in shares of SIOO each, and period of ex istence 50 years. Affaire in the Mo<foc country appear to be unchanged. The Modocs claim that they have whipped the United States, and if no better pfogrefcs Is to 1M made we might just as weil yield the point, and sue for peace. J' 1 --M J - IL-J . ■ I / IKFLUENC£ 0» THE HEWSPAPEHB. ! Olympia is occasionally alluded ln**a, '* newspaper-ridden" town, and even it* eittens snmetimPs speak of the local press as a burden instead of a blessing, j A little refaction will convince anybody that this is Wrong. Each of these jour nal* has its friends and snpportera, who send copies to every State in the Union, advertising the town far beyond its jnst deserts. As a natural conssqiience, in all Eastern publications we find Olym pia accorded the first position, in popu lation and wealth, as well as in the en terprise of its inhabitants. Still there arc a few who expect our newspapers to compare with metropolitan journals in size, ns well as in the variety and adaptability of its contents. One of these gentlemen, who frequently called our attention to this subject, was a mer chant who boasted of a " wholesale" as well as n retail trade, and patronized the press to the amount of ten or twelve dollars a vear, and never discovered the * » absurdity of his criticism until we ex plained that city journals are the pro duction of fifteen, twenty or fifty minds, instead of one set of brains to manage the editorial as well as the mechanical departments of the business. To illus trate wo contrasted his pigmy " whole sale" business with that of the establis lnents claiming no higher grade in the cities, with their magnificent stores and warehouses, filled with goods aggregat l ing a thousand times the value of his j " wholesale" outfit, and he unhesitat ingly admitted that his criticism had been unjust. Another well-meaning friend, suggested that we could improve the paper by making our selections from ; the Christian Union, the Sjririf of Pro gress, the Sun, the Herald, or some oth er favorite journal, aud brought us a six column report on the Credit Mobilier, as a sample of what onr selections I should be! We do not assume that these suggestions were not made through the best and most disinter ested of motives, but alluds to them Ito show what little though is some j times bestowed upon subjects that are ■ discussed with the apparent gravity and wisdom of a Solomon. We ask all such | to compare our papers with those of : communities as sparse as ours, or even j with many of those making muchgreat ! cr pretensions, believing that they will | by this means better qualify themselves for their self-imposed duties as critics. But we only set out to write an intro duction to the sensible remarks of the Steilacoom Express, on the subject of "Olympia Newspapers." We have long waited for some disinterested per son to say just what is so well said by our discerning contemporary. Here is the extract: Olvmpla, more than any other town in the Territory, is remarkable for her hotel and newsnupe.r enterprises). Her citizens are proiul of the hotels, and they certainly ought to bo so of their newspaiMirs; for, without the latter Olympia would have Itevn to-<lay nothing more than Coleman's sketch in Har per's of an Indian trading post. Stick tovour papers, and support them as von would members of your own family, frfends of the capital, and you will be the gainers in the long run. The newspapers are vour life-pre servers in the»o days of strife; 'they look af ter your interests whea nobody else can or will. > OFFICIAL CHANGER. —The annoifhce meut that Selncius Garfielde has been appointed Collector, although doubted by many of our people, proves to be true, as his confirmation by the Senate is announced. It shows what little re gard the President has for the popular will in a Territory, and with what ra pacity Selucius drops on any little position when a larger one slips from his grasp. It appoars also that Mr. S. Coulter has been removed from the po sition of Collector of Internal Revenue, and that Maj. Hayden will succeed him. Garfielde has no further use for poor Sam, and be is turned out to graze upon the stubble of disappointed am bition. It is likewise rumored that L. P. Beach has been superseded by a carpet-bagger, and that several other heads will roll into the basket before another month passes away. S3T George Mansfield, of Seattle, was admitted to the insane asylum, at Steilacoom, last week. The Express says that his insanity has been super induced by the use of alcoholic drinks, and that while laboring under delirium he attempted to commit suicide by throwing himself head-foremost from the' coal company's wharf, at Seattle. PISE SOAP.—We were shown, a few days ago, some specimens of fancy soap which for flavor, beauty and util ity can hardly be surpassed. Parties wishing anything in the line of plain or fancy soaps would do well to call on Messrs. Robinson & Co., at their man ufactory in Griffin's building, Main street near First. LAND LAW.—It will be seen by refer ence to an article on the first page, that several very important changes have been made in the homestead law. If any allusion to the subject has appeared in the associated press dispatches, we have not seen it. FBOM PERU.—On Saturday last, the bark Domingo arrived at Port Towns end, 50 days from Cbiuibote, Peru. }L<inntm.r, It TRUE. —The CourUv of Wednesday publishes a letter dated at Alert Bay, March 10th, to a citizen of thin place, signed " Suwanee," which gives a horrible account of the fate of th» survivors of the wreck of the Gr». S. Wright It states that " Two white men and one white woman came ashore on a raft, and the men were murdered and eaten by a tribe of Indians known as the loutanayhH. One body was de voured there, and the other body given to the Munainlakalm. One savage was seen devouring the head and neck of one of the victims. The bodies were presented to the3e two tribes by the Ow-wi-kr-hnx, who still hold the white woman for a feast. Some say that she is dead, while others declare that she is still alive and used for vile purposes, and is to be sacrificed on a certain day. The fate of the two men is unquestion able, as the feast was no secret. All those tribes are practical cannibals, and have been worse for the past six years than heretofore, as they had free license to do as they pleased while the Alabama claims were pending, and might be j wanted for cut-throats." Nowithstand ing the editor of the Courier vouches ■ for the credibility of the gentleman I receiving the letter who places every j confidence in its statements, we caution | the public against placing too much credit in the story. It appears to bear upon its face the evidence of deception. The important disclosures made should, if true, have been accompanied by the signature of the writer; and if the let ter was addressed to a citizen '' of the i highest respectability," why is it pub [ lislied as addressed to the editor of the Courier ? Then the bitterness dis- I played towards the British authorities, in the concluding portion of the letter I (not given in the above extract) makes ; the whole story still more difficult of | belief. If it is true, immediate and decisive measures should be taken for the relief of the unfortunate captive in the hands of the barbarous foe, as well as to effect such a change in their ! habits of these tribes as will forever : prevent the recurrence of such atroc- I ities. We suggest that the Courier publish the name of its informant, as a matter of justice to itself as well as the public. THE LAND RING VS. THE RAILROAD. — The San Francisco correspondent of the Portland Herald, who generally ap pears to be well posted, says of the " Land Ring": The probability is that no road will be built thisyenr, except' by such contractors an have money enough to take bonds of tho road in itayinent for the work, just an the Crodit Mo niller built the Union Pacific. And here let me take occasion to say that the sale of the Northern Pacific Railroad lands to the so called " Lake Superior and Puget Sound Land Company" was the worst blow that the Northern Pacific Railroad Company ever sus tained. It has prevented thatcompanv from selling any largo qnantlty of bonds' in the large cities of Europe, because tho lieavv capitalists say that the mere roadbed an'd rolling stock are not sufficient basis for a mortgage. Ifthcrewasa lively demand for railroad lands and a constant immigration coming to settle them, the object of putting these lands in such a position as to enable the company to realise a greater amount than was contemplated by the act organizing the the railroad, would not be of so questionable But now the agents sent here by the foreign capitalists see tho lands all sold to a fictitious companv and no collateral left save the most perishable of material; and they write back re|>orting the investment a bad one. Hence it is that money is scarco with the railroad company. KS- The new hand at the editorial bellows of the Courier unhesitatingly expresses the belief that we are in for a hot place in kingdom come. We don't know upon what grounds he bases his calculations, but presume that they are equally as substantial as those of the drunkard who imagines everybody tipsy but himself. If the free exercise of jealousy, envy, hatred, malice, and kindred emotions is not indulged in heaven, it is very plain the individual who does the scissorings for the Courier will be out of his element there. The the dread of meeting his kind will go very far towards effecting a reformation in this life. OLYMFIA DISTRICT SCHOOL. A few days ago we passed a very pleasant hour in listening to the recitations of the classes under Mr. Kay and Miss Jennie Patterson, in the Olympia Dis trict No 1. We were specially pleased with the deportment of the scholars, which has heretofore been none of the best, as well as the plain practical and comprehensive mode of imparting in struction in both departments. We unhesitatingly express the opinion that this district has been very fortunate in its selection of the present teachers. " FOREST GROVE INDEPENDENT." —This is' the title of a new paper, the first number of which has been received, published at Forest Grove, Oregon. One of the publishers is Frank Myers, who learned to set type in this office severalj ears ago, a young man of much promise. We wish the Independent suc cess. WeS~ No mail left for down Sound ports last Wednesday, the Department not having responded to the request of the Postmaster for instructions. THE FESTIVAL. —The festival held last Wednesday evening by the fadilfe of the M. E. Church netted about S6O. A* Ere TO 81-MXESS.— The Tribune,! publishes the particulars of a little bus-! iness transaction of Garfielde's that is i iu keeping with his whole line of con-1 duct, the details of which have been in \ our possession for ten days past, but we were not at liberty to make them public. The circumstances aro briefly these: Dr. Minor, of Port Townsend, becoin ing convinced that under the new order of things incident to the settlement of the San Juan difficulty that increased

mail service would probably be author ized, paid Garfielde the sum of five hundred dollars to secure for him a fat contract on the proposed route. Gar fielde pocketed the money (of course) and told the Doctor to secure the names of everybody on the lower part of the Souud to a memorial to the Department. The Doctor traveled far and near at considerable expense, securing many names, which he forwarded to Selucius. " Dear Garfielde" wrote that everything was lovely, and the Doctor was happy. He chartered his steamer, and made all necessary arrangements to begin the service on the first prox. What was his surprise, however, the other day, to learn that Garfielde had secured the contract for himself and telegraphed to " Dear Bradshaw" to secure a steam er and carry the mails on the new route for the new contracter and new Collector of Customs, Selucius Garfielde! Poor Minor, now ruminates on the evanescent character of earthly aspirations, and the treacherous nature of his once cherished friend. His heart is almost broken, as is that of poor Sam, our late Collector of Internal Revenue. ANOTHER ABSCONDING DEBTOR. The community has been much excited the past few days, in consequence of the alleged departure of S. B. Abbott, of the firm of Abbott & Horr, furniture dealers of this place, for parts unknown. About three weeks ago, Abbott left for San Francisco, ostensibly to purchase supplies for his business, carrying with him about $4,000 of money belonging to the firm and several thousands of borrowed money. After making a few purchases in San Francisco, he sud denly disappeared, since which time nothing has been heard of him. The creditors in San Francisco, upon these facts becoming known, immediately telegraphed authority to Judge Mc- Fadden to secure their claims by seiz ure of the property here, and the bus iness is now continued, we understand, for the benefit of the creditors, until arrangements are made for a settlement of the affairs of the firm. It is with profound regret, we are called upon to chronicle this second violation of busi ness faith, in a community that has so long sustained an umimpeachable rec ord at home and abroad. DISCONTINUED.— The Portland Herald of the 26th inst., announces, over the signature of the President of the " Her ald Publishing Co./'its suspension with that number. He says: "We retire for the simple reason that financially our enterprise has not only failed to pay, but has become burdensome. In other words, we have not had sufficient support to make the paper self-sus taining." We apprehend that the fail ure of the Herald is attributable more to inexperience of its managers, than any other cause. It never has had a practical man, experienced in the details of the business, at its head. While it is not stated in the valedictory just when publication will be resumed, the inference is drawn from other articles in the same issue, that it will soon ap pear tinder different auspices. We trust that we have ground for this hope, as th? Herald has been a valued co-la borer in past conflicts for the triumph of principle. %3C Richard Lane, an old and once much-respected citizen of this place, was, a few days ago, pronounced by his physicians to be suffering under a mental derangement caused by long continued use of alcoholic liquors, and therefore, incompetent to manage his own affairs and dangerous to himself and the community. Under these cir cumstances, he was sent to the insane asylum for proper treatment. That he may soon be restored to health is the fervent wish of all who knew him in his better days. ANOTHER GIGANTIC MONOPOLY. Mr. G. W. Carleton and Johnny Van Worm er, have effected a partnership in the hotel and stage business, of which we propose to give full particulars next week. S3T A San Francisco dispatch of the 22d inst. says that the steamer Pelican is to be forthwith placed upon the route between thi* place and Portland. S&r A large room on the lower floor of the Odd Fellows building, is to let at sl2 per month. Inquire, for further particulars, of A. A. Phillips, Esq. BP" Dr. F. M. Lamper, once Receiver of Public Moneys in this place, died recently in Chicago, from an overdose of chloral. THE NORTHERN PACIFIC. What li t« fcf Done tkli Yrar. I From the St. Paul Prttt, Fob. 2G. | At a general meeting of the Board of Directors and offiecrs of the Northern Pacific Railroid Company, held in New York during the present month, it was decided to push forward the work with all possible speed during the available portion of the year 1873, and in accord ance with this decision a definate pro gramme was arranged which will be adhered to as closely as circumstances will permit. Immediately following the appearance of settled and favorable weather the line is to be opened to EJwington, the present terminal point on the Missouri river. This portion of the work will be completed by the opening of navigation on that stream, all the material required having been placed on the ground last fall, prior to the advent of cold weath er. The entire line to the Missouri was so well advanced last year that com pai*atively little will be required to place it in good running order from the out lets upon Lake Superior, or the Missis sippi river at St. Paul, to the Missouri. In anticipation of a radical change in the direction taken by the travel and traffic from the Western Territories to ! the more populous States and marts of the East, the company has determined to operate two passenger trains per day to and from Edwinton—one being de j signed exclusively for passengers, and I the other an accommodation, or mixed train. These trains will run in connec tion with a line of steamers, which nre to make regular trips, during the sea son of navigation, 011 the Missouri river, and which has lieretofoie been consid ered the point of divergance toward the gold-fields of Montana, or the more secluded, but, perhaps, not less profita ble route of hunters and trappers along the base of the Rocky mountains or on the margin of the timbered water courses. The line of the steamers will be di vided into two branches, a small frac tion thereof being intended to ply the Missouri between Edwington and Sioux City, thus affording regular facilities to the settlements and military posts 011 that stream situated below its "North ern Pacific crossing." Six steamers are to be placed in the line bet ween Ed wington and Fort Benton, a number considered ample for the accommodation of travel and freight either westward or eastward-bound. Should the business of this new thoroughfare, however, re quire additional facilities for the rapid and secure movement of commodities, the company will supply them whenev er and as rapidly as the necessity is in dicated. When the steamers begin their trips to Fort Benton, trains will con tinue and complete the connections be tween the citizens of Montana and those of Eastern America, and while this por tion of the route may wear its primative feature, it will nevertheless answer its purpose, and complete the first direct chain of communication established be tween tho northern cities and the remote Territory. Surveys will be prosecuted west of the Missouri river until a feasible route is discovered—the characteristics of the country embraced in some portions of the Western extensions being of a na ture discouraging to any hope of suc cessful railroading over that intricate and broken surface. Special pains will be taken to secure a good route, and when this is discovered and the line defii itelv looted by tho engineers, construction will follow immediately, and will be prosecuted with unremitting vigor. Pcrhnps the busiest scenes of the Summer on the Northern Pacific road will be found on that portion of the line lying between Puget Sound and the base of the Rocky Mountains, a dis tance of 280 miles. Here will be con centrated as large a force as can gath ered together advantageously and the company hopes to have the entire stretch between the points named fully complet ed and ready for the movement of trains before the next Winter torrci a tempo rary suspension of operations. ACCIDENT.— We learn from the Courier that William Druitt had the middle and third fingers on his left hand badly crushed or jammed yesterday, in Se attle, by getting them caught between the iron rollers of a cracker machine. The rollers were only three-sixteenths of an inch apart, and the hand was drawn in until the pressure stopped the machine. The wounded hand was im mediately dressed, and further than being laid up for a few weeks and per haps, the loss of the nails of two fin gers, the young man will be all right. J VDGES OF ELECTION.— PoIIs and judges of election were selected as follows for the ensuing municipal election: First Ward—Polls in Town Hall; Judges, G. A. Barnes, C. H. Hale and W. J. Waitt. Second Ward Polls, new county building; Judges, J. R. Hay den, J. M. Lowe and F. Tarbell. Third Ward—Polls, in S. D. Ruddell's new building; Judges, J. T. Elder, W. H. Clark and S. D. Ruddell. VESSEL WRECKED. —The bark Almatia was wrecked last Saturday afternoon in Plumper Pass, British Columbia. She was in charge of the steamer Maude, and was towed on the shore of a rocky island at the entrance of the Pass. She was loaded with $330,000 feet of lumber from one of the Burrard Inlet milts, and was bound to Melbourne. WST A contemporary reports that Dr. Walker, once of this place, recently committed suicide, in New Haven, Conn. TELEGRAPHIC. IiATEK PROM THK ATLANTIC *TATK„ NEW YOR*, March 23.— Commodore Vandcrbilt has given $500,000 for the ?>urpose of erecting * large Seminary or females on tile grounds of the Mo ravian Church at Nondrop, Staten Is land, to be built on the plan of the semiuary at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and endorsed by the Commodore. WASHINGTON, March 23.—A report prevails that Senator Caldwell will ted der his resignation to-morrow morning before the discussion of his case is re sumed; but the Senator himself having been interrogated on that subject to night, denies its truth—saying, how ever, that his course is altogether con trolled by the advice of his friends. There is no doubt a larger vote will be obtained in the Senate for expulsion than for the other proposition. The President received no visitors yesterday. He suffers from the effects of a heavy cold taken on inauguration day, and aggravated by subsequent ex posure to the weather. General Spinner, yesterday, entered upon his thirtieth year as Treasurer of the United States. The United States and British Claims Commission will close its business by the 2Gtli of September, when it will er piro by limitation. WASHINGTON, March 24.—The Senate met at noon. The Vice-President laid btfor# the Senate a letter from Senator Caldwell, Haying he had resigned his Beat in the Senate, and endowing a copy of the letter he had sent to tho olKce of the Governor of Kansas. The resignation in to fjiko effect immediately. He also sent tho receipt of the Governor of Kan- Han, now in this city, to whom he hand' ed a copy of his letter of resignation. Wright inquired whether Morton pro posed to take any further steps. Morton replied that it was not com petent to expel u man not a Senator, or declare his Feat vacant; I'eiefore ho considered his duties us ("tminium of the Committee oil Kh'i-lions :;( un end.

MILWAUKEE, March 24.—Lieut. Gov ernor W. H. Pettit died at his residence in Kenosha last night, after a brief il ness. NEW YOHK, March 24.—A number of citizens of New York and New Jersey have organized themselves into a co operative body. They propose to re move to California and settle upon lands yet to be selected. They propose to locate upon the line of the Pacific Railroad, where their numbers will en title them to a depot and Post-office. They have chosen officers, all of whom, save tho Secretary, are to act without compensation. Tho labor of the eoin inunity is to bo mutual, as well as the benefits thereof.

The Senate confirmed the following nominations to day: David Bur bey, Collector of Customs for Southern Dis trict of Oregon; Amasa Morse, Post* master at Petaluma. Attorney-General Williams says Le has not as yet decided the question whether the terminus of the Union Pa cific Railroad is at Council Bluffs or Omaha, and will probably not attend to the matter for the next ten days. NEW YORK, March 21.—The execution of Foster look place in the Tombs at eighteen minutes past nine this morn ing. Upon reaching the gallows, Fos ter of his own accord pluced himself be neath the noose. His face looked very pale beneath the black cap, and grew paler every moment. As Dr. Tyng prayed, Foster bowed his face with his right hand for six minutes. Dr. Tyng continued his praying, mul as it was evident that Foster was at the point of swooning, the Sheriff, quickly us possi ble advanced and shook Foster by the hand, Dr. Tyng bade him farewell, an 4 at 9:18 the signal was given and Foster was jerked violently into the air. He was a heavy man, and his neck was broken. His heart ceased beating in rather less than twelve minutes from the time the weight fell, and in all probability he died without much pain. NEW YORK, March 22.—The bark J3»»- via C. Litchfield, which arrived from Rio Janeiro to-day, had the whole of her crew down with the yellow fever February 22d, at sea, excepting two men. Two died. The schooner Jiroc*- ler, from the Bame place, lost one man from yellow fever.
