In previous articles we have demon strated the necessity of a wharf to deep water, and suggested the plan by which it can be secured, and we now propose to demonstrate the entire feasibility of the project from facts accessible to ev erybody and conclusive iu their bearing upon the subject. It lias l>een found by actual measure ment that a wharf 4,(KM) feet long will reach a seven foot depth of water at low tide, which will admi' ordinary craft, at all stages of the tid*, plyi.ig upon the Sound. From that point the depth increases more rapidly, and the addition of a few hundred feet would t ike us to a point where the " longest leggel" vessel could come or go at any time. But this is not deemed essential at the present time, as but few large vessels come farther than the saw-mills, where they receive their cargoes of lumber, and the detention if they came here would not be more than an hour or two even under the most unfavorable circumstances. We have been shown estimates of the cost of a wharf 20 feet wide and the pro posed length, with suitable wings or aprons at intervals and a T at the ex treme end, made by several men of sound judgment and practical experi ence in wharf-building, and from these select the hi<jhe*t for the purpose of il lustration. The items are briefly these: I.A3S Piles, at *3 each S3, Iff) 100 Fender Piles at SI each 4tH> 150.H0H feet 4x12 Strliiiiera. at $lO per M 1.500 404.000 ft. 4 ill. put down 5.5<W 20.000 ft. Railing, put up at S2O per M. 400 Warehouse at end. 40x00 foot HOO half tide wing. 110x40 foot 400 " high tide wing 30x40 feet 400 Total cost $17,028 Other estimates reduce the size of the T connection to 00x200 feet, and of the aprons to 30x200 feet nnd dispense with the two smaller warehouses —bringing the figures considerably within $15,000. Probably these can lie dispensed with and the public utility not be materially affected by the omission. If so, the annual profit, toapply on the extinguish ment of the principal or debt, will be very materially increased. The revenue from the wharf will be derived from the number of tons of freight passing over it, the number of livestock shipped, storage on unclaimed goods, wharfage on wood, and several other items not included in this esti mate. The figures here given, we are prepared to prove, are within bounds, and based upon information received from all our principal business men. The aggregate number of tons of freight received annually is placed at 20 per cent, less than the figures resulting from the computations made upon a general canvass of the subject. The amount of outgoing freight is derived from the best data at hand, as also of the live stock, and purposely placed at less than the actual figures. The re sult is as follows: Incoming freight, 5000 tons at 50c. .. $2,500 Outgoing freight, 1000 tons, at 50<\ . s<rf) Cattle anil horses. IHOO head at 12'*c 200 Kheep and hogs, 5000 head at 5c 250 Wood. 3000 cords at 25c 750 Storage on freight not delivered. .. 400 Total revenue SI,OOO Now the expenses of maintaining the enterprise will be briefly considered. A wharfinger's salary, say $1,200, should be deducted from the earnings, leaving the remainder to pay interest and be applied annually in reducing the prin cipal. This balance, the first year, af ter deducting salary and interest, will be $1,240, reducing the principal to $16,760; at the end of the second year, it will have increased to $1,389 and the indebtedness can be decreased to $15,- 371, and this ratio of progression con tinues nine years, when the whole amount remaining is wiped out. The following table will illustrate our posi tion, showing the figures in round num bers for each year: Prinripnl. I,Urmit. Jinhir'o Fund.

If the business is doubled in four or five years, (the eipenses, of course, re maining the same) the revenue will pay Jie remaining debt in one or two years leaving the wharf good for many years AS a ixvjuyj inve*tiwiU equal to all our rnwnt revenue from muii CijHtl tare*.

We confers we eounot M e a possibil ity of the entorpri>< failing to result as indicated. If the data ait) collet upon which we base our calcidations, mi l any citizen cm and should post himself in that particular, they amount to a mathematical demonstration. Honest figures will not lie, and we invite the closest scrutiny as to their reliability. If after investigation and reflection, they are found correct, there is but on'c duty left for every citizen owning a foot of land within the town limits, and that is to vote for men who will advance the enterprise by all pro;>er means at. their command. We want men of de cision of character; men of sound judg ment, who will not be deterred from keeping step with the spirit of progress by the clamor of a few fossilized speci mens of humanity, who believe that every enterprise is a delusion and a snare prepared for their trembling limbs. Personally, we have no axe to grind except that possessed alike by even other property holder. We confess to a selfish motive: the improvement and the enhancement in value of our own property, by an advance in tho value of the property of every other man inter ested in the town. Every other con sideration is subordinate to this, and all others must fall before the inevitable logic of events. i "Irs'' ANU "ANDS."-— Mr. McElroy is in favor of the wharf, if Congress can be induced to donate the mudflats to the ; town. The injustice of such a demand is apparent when wo consider the pros , pective value of the proposed '' dona tion." The indefinite term " mudriats" J covers about 6,000 acres lying upon the water front, that will be worth millions soon as title can be acquired. The idea that Congressmen cannot see through a | mill-stone has been dispelled by the J Credit Mobilicr, yet Mr. McElroy would have us believe that u town board of two-per-cents can euchre them in a scheme involving close financial figur ing! It is absurd to suppose that Con gress will ever feel inclined to give something for nothing, or before any i effort is made to acquire some shadow of a title by occupation. Possibly a i few hundred feet lying contiguous to ' the wharf might be secured upon a pro | per showing, after the wharf is built, but never before it is done. Even the great railroad corporations acquire title | after the work is done. This position of Mac is but an attempt to divert at . tention from the issue. Low taxes, j high rates of interest and a small com munity suit him. In a large city he I lose his individuality, and that would be an unbearable affliction. He would i much rather be a whale among porgees I than the fattest mackerel in a school of I his own species. -♦ ♦- C FT.RLETON HOUSE. —This is the name of a new hotel, just opened on Columbus street, by our typographical friend, G. W. Carleton, and John Van Wormer, the very popular mail-carrier on the Chehalis route. The building, former ly occupied by John L. Clark, Esq., is new, large and well adapted for the business to which it will be devoted, with large family rooms, cozy fire-places and many home comforts not found in ordinary hotels. Carleton is a good printer, and wo therefore think he has sense enough to run a hotel. The "craft," so noted for impecuniogily, will hail with joy Mr. Carleton's advent as bonifice, and we expect they will cling to him as long as there is a shingle on his roof. The " tone" they impart to the new establishment will, of course, be sufficient recompense for their board, and the public will appreciate, in course of time, the advantage of such intellect ual associations, and patronize the home for indigent printers. A CKEDITABLE EDIFICE. —The Walla Walla Statesman gives a description of the new Episcopal church building in that city. The size of the main build ing is 20x51 feet. The base of the bell tower is 11 feet square and the tower and spire will be 209 feet in height. The style is the pointed Gothic, and this style is adhered to in the finish of the seats, altar and the interior of the build ing. The roof of the main building is supported by three sets of truss rafters, and these being left open with the tim bers oiled and varnished, give a very handsome finish. TEMPOIUHY SUSPENSION. THE New Northwest has suspended publication for a short time, the whole typograph ical force being prostrated by the meas les, and the editor in need of rest from the arduous she has assumed. In a few weeks the paper will appear with renewed vigor gathered from the brief respite. j •W The Courier has the word "ti ki very prominently displayed in its vujnctie. It only needs the word mem ulo<me added to signify its inevitable fate. THE CANDIDATES. t!i« > eh'ftion approaches. public in terest appmra to l>e more and more centered upon the issue so thoroughly discussed the past few weeks the building of a wharf to deep water. It is safe to say that the advocates of this measure' arc large ly in the ascendency, and to predict that a Mayor and Board of Trustees will be elected who will leave no means untried to secure the success of this laudable enterprise.- Gen. Miller, who appears to be the unanimous choice for Mayor is a firm advocate of the wharf measure, and so are Messrs. (.'has. Burmistcr and Coulter, who seems to be the choice of the citizens of the First ward for Trus tees. So strong is the sentiment on this question in this ward, that we doubt very much whether there will be any opposing candidates. In the Second ward Messrs. Blinn, Swan, Ellis and. McElroy are the prominent condi dates—the first three gentlemen in favor of the wharf and Mr. McElroy in favor with many ifs and aiirfs. His position is so equivocal that no man favoring t£e enterprise will vote for him, who really desires success to the measure. Iu the Third ward, Messrs. D. S. B. Henry and Francis Hoffman, are the wharf can didates so far as we can learn, from the popular expression this far and Mr. Dobbins, is for wharf -if the t«wn won't have to build it, and providing it is built several miles down the Sound and a road is made through Swantown to connect with it. He is "in favor," but has not, as yet, advanced a single intelligent suggestion as to how it iS' to be built—if the public funds are not to bo used for the puspose. These are all the names that have been suggested up to this time, and doubtless the list is large enough to select from it men who will fnirly represent the wishes of the voters and the best interests of the com munity. UNCHARITABLE.—W. H. Mitchell,Esq., in withdrawing his name from the list of candidates for alderman, indulges, wo think, in very uncharitable illusions towards the advocates of a wharf. At least, his language is offensive, and we believe does him injustice. He says, " I do not intend to commit myself to any pet scheme to rob the city." Now we have heard of no such scheme, and would be at a loss to know precisely to what his language referred, had he not in the same connection spoke of the wharf enterprise in terms of the most unqualified hostility. The of the word rob, in a legal sense, iff, Mto take from the person of another feloni ously, forcibly, and by putting Jiim iiv fear." In a more general sense it is to seize and carry from anything by .vio lence and with felonious intent," or "to plunder, to strip unlawfully," or in a still more common sense, " to steal." Now, we certainly do not be lieve that Mr. Mitchell wished to stig matize the majority oi his fellow-citizens with any such intent or desire. Many of our best men are warm advocates of a wharf, and though he is not of their number they certainly do not apply epithets to him or his motives that would degrade him in the eyes of his fellow men. The Meek and Lowly One teaches a different sentiment, and the sermon on the mount inculcates a dif ferent code of moral ethics. In justice to Mr. Mitchell, for whom we entertain sentiments of profound respect, we ven ture the assertion that he did not mean to class his fellow-citizens who ' may differ with him in opinion upon public enterprise with the foot-pads and |)ick pockets who disgrace the criminal .cal endars of our country. * -■ PROGRESS. —Simultaneously wiili the announcement that that a committee in the Massachusetts Legislature has agreed to report in favor of Woman Suffrage, comes the news that the Sen ate of New Jorsov has passed a bill to make women eligible to the office of school trustree. The work of eduofttion is specially adapted to women of intel ligence, and as the dutief of school directors are not of a nature to overtax their physical powers, they may btfcon sidered fully equal to them. „ . S&T The liabilities of the firm of Ab bott & Horr, amount to $8,500 and the assets to $7,700 at San Francisco prices, and bills, added to about enough to cover the indebtedness, leaving ; Mr. Horr, without a dollar through his part ner's rascality. The sympathies of the commuuity are warmly enlisted in favor of Mr. Horr, who has manifested a dis position to make good the firm con tracts notwithstanding it may bankrupt himself. OBLIGING. —On Saturday last Capt. Wright carried the U. S. Mails from this Postoffice to Seattle and the way ports, without charging a cent for re muneration. Such generous acts are so rare that we mike a note of it. 33£T The steamer California, from Portland, with a large freight, is due at any moment. She sailed last Tues day. TULILIP RESERVATION. —It HAS long Wen known that the Tula lip Agency, in charge of l»ev. Father Cliirouse, is a model of good order and industry, and is noted for the rapid progress made in the civilization of the Indians. The following facts from the Intrtligeiicer, will therefore be read with special in terest: At present, there are about 150 Indians at work, mostly engaged in

logging, who are able to support their families with the proceeds of their la bor. During the winter months, it re quires great exertion on their part to carry on their pursuits profitably, but many of them are extremely industri ous and frugal in their habits. A short time since, as an evidence of their in dustry, two of them, named Charley and Peter, purchased On credit four yoke of cattle, provisions, etc., and started a logging camp. They hired two white man and ten Indians to as sist, and went to work with a will. Af ter about two months labor, they sold their boom of logs to the Puget Mill Company, and realized sufficient to pay SBOO for their cattle, the wages of the hired men, provisions, etc., and have left SIOO for each of the partners. One of the white men, Tom Salby, who acted as teamster, received SIOO a month for Iris lalx>r, and was presented by them with a S2O coat! Two schools, for boys and girls, are on the Reserva tion, and have about fifty pupils. Gen erally speaking, they are healthy—only two having died, one of consumption and the other of dropsy, in many months. The mill is in running order, and, in connection with the Agency there are 10 logging camps—eleven at Tulalip, three at Port Madison, and two at Swinomish. Too much praise cannot be awarded to Father Chirouse for his indomitable exertions in favor of those under his care. ■ GEO. E. COLE'S REPUBLICANISM. —The Courier defends the action of the Pres ident in appointing Geo. E. Cole to the position of Postmaster at Portland. It amounts merely to a justification of po litical apostacy, a recognition of a right to turn one's coat whenever it may suit the interests or convenience of the wearer. The Courier is fortunate in the selection of its mode of defense. Its editor, its owners, its financial sup porters, the clique that run it, and all having any influence in directing its policy, have need of the most charitable construction of the very liberal views expressed in support of Mr. Cole. Tho consistent men of the party have long since ceased to exert any influence in shaping its policy. Renegade Dem ocrats, and professional time-servers, have seized upon the fruits of victory, and are banded together alike by the ties of a common interest and a com mon infamy. SIMILAR. —The San Francisco AUa, in speaking of the great telegraph monop oly which is so burdensome to the coun try, says that Mr. Orton, the President of the monopoly, " seems to occupy a position similar to that of Mr. Colfax. AY hen that great smiler was charged with taking the stock as a bribe, he de nied ever having the s*ock; when that was proved upon him, he denied ever having the money; when that was proved upon him, he asserted that the money was sent to him as a present, in a letter from a dead man, and the letter was torn up. The Western Union was charged with being a great stock-gam bling monopoly; it denied the monopoly; when that is proved upon it, it denies the stock-gambling; when that is proved upon it, it admits that it issued stock il legally to extend its monopoly. DIRECTORS. —A San Francisco dispatch of the 29th ult. says that the European and Oregon Land Company have elected the following Directors: Joseph S. Wil son, President; F. D. Atherton, Vice President; Wm. C. Ralston, Wm. Nor ris, John P. Jackson, Thomas Brown, M. S. Latham, J. L. Bathbone, Ru dolph Sulzbach, Francis Aveiy and Jesse Holladay. The company have charge of the land grants of the Ore gon and California Bailroad Company. LAND OFFICE BUSINESS. —The business of the Land Office in this city for the month of march, just closed, is as fol lows: ACHES T.ands soltl for cash 2,908 Commuted under homestead law 158 Kntered under " 2,030 Certificates issued under " 1,078 Donation certificates issued 633 Declaratory statements filed 4.9C5 Homestead declaration tiled 640 Total ...12,432 GONE FROM OUR GAZE. —Mose Scott and Will Lowe, have departed for other climes the past week. Mr. Scott goes to California, his former home, and Mr. Lowe, to Portland to enter Gray's Mus ic Store. They both have many friends in the community who regret their do- - parture. py The pile of freight lauded on the wharves the past few week should answer the question " Will the wharf pay?" if animated beings endowed with brains can't do it. I To the voters of the Third Ward. Inm in favor of a wharf to devp water, lull oi>- |«MH-U to tunning the town in debt to liuild U. J. t». By the use of the same logic, Mr Dobbins would be in favor of going to heaven, but opposed to making any ef fort to get there. If the gentleman is uneasy about the result in the Third ward he should lm\e suid more or noth ing at all. If he is in favor of the wharf, but does not want the Town to build it, why did he not give us his views as to how it was to be done. Our perceptive faculty may be somewhat obtuse, but we confess we don't see just how it is to be done, unless the Town builds the wharf or a company builds it. Mr. Dobbins will not favor the town building it, but like Artemus Ward, is perfectly willing to sacrifice the capital of his relatives and friends if necessary to secure so great a boon. The idea is a good one if Mr. Dobbins has enough influence with the moneyed men to enrrv it out. ALL FOOL'S DAY. —Tuesday last was the day set a part by common consent for fools to rule, and consequently no body has been surprised or annoyed at any stale joke played upon them Iby those who profess the endeavor to I "shoot folly as flies." An original joke, however, was perpetrated on one of our hardware merchants in which the victim at the request of a lady friend was made to search the town over for horse-radish seed. A Smart Aleck in attendance on the Court was sent to to the office of a contemporary, for italic spaces, but as we promised not to say anything about it, mum's the word. OFFICE DISCOSTINIEI).—A few flays since, Miss Flora Pearson, Assistant Keeper of the Aiimirality Head Light on VVhidby Island, I received notice from the I.ijrlit House Itoard at Washington that her services were no longer required. Miss Flora held the olllee six years, and her father, the prineiiKil keeper, is the only employee allowed that light. Ev ery other lighthouse on the coast lias two or more employees.— Tribune. Wonder if she wasn't removed for political reasons ? True she is a woman, and didn't vote; but probably she had opinions nevertheless. If " party nec essity" once demanded the striking of a widow's name from the pension roll, probably it would now require the re moval of a light keeper who might not have come up to the scratch in support ing the party. ♦ ♦ ty Another centennial anniversary is t j be celebrated—that of Mecklenburg, where the original declaration of Inde pendence was framed. In Mecklenburg, North Carolina, in May, 1775, the no ble sentiments of the immortal docu ment of 1776, were first affirmed by a faithful few determined to oppose Brit ish oppression and tyranny. Their desccndents propose to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of that event in 1775. SEMINARY. —The Courier is informed that a movement has been inaugurated, having for its object the erection of a building to be used as a seminar}* for girls. Judge Thomas Mercer has given a very desirable block of land about one and one-half miles from Se attle, over looking Lake Union, for a site, and some three thousand dollars have been subscribed by citizens of Se attle. ■—-♦ 0* 9 THE SOUND MAIL. The Post office Department at Washington has, by tel egraph, instructed Postmaster Burr to deliver the mails to the Starr Brothers, from and after the Ist inst., twice a week for Victoria and way ports and once a week for Seattle. The mails close at 6 p. M. instead of half-past 7 as heretofore. JRS" Tlie Committee appointed by the creditors of Stone A Burnett of Seattle, to adjust their claims, report that the liabilities foot up $82,397, and the as sets $61,109 —affording a settlement at about 75 cents on a dollar. The cred itors have decided to release Mr. Bur nett from further liability upon that basis. SAN JUAN LIME Co. —This Company, says the Courier, has been re-organized and now consists of Messrs, N. C. Bai ley, Jas. McCurdy, C. M. Bradshaw, and Ike M. Hill. It has purchased the schooner Ontario and intends to use her for transporting the product of their lime-kiln to the ports on the Sound. UNTRUE.— The letter in the Courier of last week, dated at Alert Bay, and signed " Suwanee," in relation to the Wright disaster, is said to be afalsehood, cut from whole cloth. Why the Cou rier should have been so easily imposed upon is a mystery the public do not fathom. ANOTHER STORE. —It will be observed by reference to our advertising columns that Messrs. Sutherland & Co., have opened a large stock of staple and fan cy goods in the Olympic Hotel building, corner Fourth and Main Streets. M&~ Mr. Brown, of the Ditpatrh, fell into the river at Kalama while getting into a boat to board the ocean steamer for San Francisco. He consequently lost his passage and was compelled to pursue his journey overland. A HEW COMPAHY. Articles of incoqtoration were filed •11 the County Clerk'♦» office at Portt land, on March Jflth, for the Pugp- Soim.l Construction and Transports tion Company. The object of the cor poration is to enter into, perform and enforce contracts for constructing, equipping, maintaining and operating the whole or any part or parts of rail roads, other roads, canals, docks, bridges, and other works of n public nature within the limits of the Territo ries of Washington, Idaho and Mon tana. To purchase, construct, equip and maintain, own and hold railroads, other roads, canals, docks, bridges and other works of a public nature withiit the limit* of said Territories, and to transfer for hire, mails, freight and pas sengers thciein, and operate and use the same for such purposes as such works are commonly used and operated, to buy, sell, nsc, manage, dispose of,- pledge, mortgage and redeem all kinds of property, real or personal, public and private, bonds and stocks, bills of ex change, promissory notes and other se curities. To enter into contracts per taining to any lawful business pursuit or occupation. The capital stock is placed at $4,000,- 000, in shared of SIOO each. The prin cipal office or place of business is in tlie city of Portland. The incorporator® are J. C. Ainswortli, S. G. Heed and ('„ H. Lewis. FASHION NOTES. Frog green is the latest new color. Opera cloaks are often trimmed with tufts of roses. The polonaise promises to continue being worn all through the spring. Jewelry made of jet ami cut steel is the proper thing for half mourning. Fashionable young ladies are wearing a wide ruching of tulle about the neck, a la Marie Antoinette. The two new dress materials for spring wear are India camel's hair and vigogne, a soft, woolen fabric. Long trains are now worn only for occasions of great ceremony. For or dinary evening dress the tiemi-train is in great favor. The laic <t revival of an old fashion is the tight Medicis sleeves, with a great putf at the shoulder, such as 0110 gees in old paintings. he Follet says that the bounets now worn are much improved since the mod ification in their shape. They are still worn high, and quite backward on the head, with a string under the chin, or under the back hair, according to the style of the toilet. The Spanish veil is much worn, and is generally verv be coming. PASTOKAL.—Bishop Morris publishes, in the Orcijon Uhurehmaii, the following pastoral letter: Dear Brethern: I take this opportu nity of calling your attention to the ap pointed Easter Offering for the " En dowment Fund of the Bishop Scott Grammar and Diviuity School." Al though this fund is slowly increasing, yet it does not gain as rapidly as it should, in view of its great importance to the permanent foundation of this in stitution. 'i he ground, building, libra ry and apparatus which we have already are A very good beginning, but they are only a beginning, and if we would make this School whut it should be, uud put it beyond the hazard of financial fniluro we must not stay our efforts till it is irrll mid full;/ endowed. Doubtless it will take years to accomplish this, but we who have upon as the responsibili ty < of the present time,sh< u'd be ready and willing to do our j art in this important undertaking. I beg, there fore, that the attention of all our con giegations be called to this subject, ai d that they l>e asked for liberal offerings and subscriptions on Faster day next, toward this end iwire it fund. Faithfully yours, B. WLHTAH MOMUB. To OLYMPIA FOR REPAIRS.— It is cer tniiily a great pity and drawback for this city to have 110 means by whirli proper repaiis can be made to an ocenn steamer when they are necessary and be obliged to send them to other ports to have the work done. Instances of I such a lack of advantages, that are pos itively necessary to any commercial port, should not be long suffered to exist in a city that lavs claim to the number of sea-going and other vessels which enter her port annually. Unfortunate as this state of dockage opportunities is, it is nevertheless true, and the steamer Gux nie Telfair had to be taken to Olympia for repairs, for which port slie l?ft. last evening in convoy of the stealer Cali fornia, taking with her several tons oC iron witfi winch to repair. She is re ported to leak badly, caused by the se vere straining and heavy seas she expe rienced in her long search for the steamer Geo. S. Wright.—Herald. SUNSHINE AND STORM. —The weather the pant week lias been n succession of sunshine and storm, at times reminding us of mid-summer and again of the mis ty days of our interminable winter. 53T Portland has ordered two addi tional steam fire engines for its already very effective fire department.
