Why is it that the * isages of our busi ness men elongate during a period of " hard times"' Is the accumulation of money the only, or indeed the sole, ob ject in life? Are the} such devoted worshippers at the shrine of Mammon, that the chink of money alone Cm! a smile to their countenancei? Have they never discovered the wisdom in the line "Tin lvttor to laugh than lip siehirte," or have they never tried the virtues of out-door, vigorous, manly exercise, in driving away the blue devils? It really ap)>ears not; and to make a few timely suggestions Is the object <<f this article. It is a notorious fact that the Amer ican people are too much driven by business. They never pause to consider the effect of this constant drain upon the energies of both mind and body. Not even the few public holidays are generally observed. The store, the of fice and the shop engages undivided at tention the year round, and in the course of time force of habit becomes too fixed to be easily changed. A community like this, which is de prived of the many means of popular enjoyment found in cities, or even the more densely populated rmal dis tricts, should make the most of such means of recieation as are afforded them. We hive good roads for drives, a fine liarlwr for rowing and sailing, pleasant groves for out-door parties, excellent streams for fishing, plenty of game, and other rational means of recreation, and just now plenty of time to avail our selves of these great blessings. We can learn a lesson from the Ger mans, who have many holidays and so cieties organized especially to enjoy them. Their athletic sports tone up the system for the laborious duties of life. Music lends its witchery on these occasions, to sooth the senses and be guile the mind from care. When the weather will permit their exercises are in the open air, with no covering but the blue vault of heaven, and the beau tiful foliage of trees and flowers for surroundings. The result is apparent in the happiness, health and longevity of its members. Try this elixir, and see if the times will not soften just us you learn to enjoy life. BEVEXCE CUTTER fOR PugEf SOUND.— In the San Francisco Atlu, May 21st, a;»pe.irs this: The new Revenue Cutter, Olivr J. U a/coft Jr., intended for ser vice on Paget Sound, is now receiving her finishing touches at Beale street wharf. She is built of Oregon pine and is 137 feet long, 22 feet 8 inches in breadth of beam, 10 feet 4 inches in depth of hold, and 204 tons register. She will have five furnished cabins for the officers, and the crew will have ac commodations forward. On the star board side will be the powder maga zine, which will hold two tons. She is cutter rigged and has two masts. Dick ey Brothers of San Francisco are the builders. Her machinery was built by the Bisdon Irou» Works. She has a •single engine, the cylinder being thirty foar inches in diameter, and the length of stroke being the same dimensions. It is expected that she will make twelve knots an hour. Her cost will be 000, and after the trial trip she will be turned over to the Government. SINKING BIRCS. —The German resi dents of Cincinnati, Ohio, have formed an " Acclimatization Society," the object of which is to import from the Father land some of its famous singing birds, to be turned loose aud fill the forests With those rare species of feathered song sters. It is believed that« sufficient diversity of tflimate and food exists to maintain most of the species. Like ao c.eties have been formed in several of the large Western cities. A NEW COLLECTION DISTIIICT.— The Argus says that a Collection District hai bsen set off for Southern Oregon, the Port of Entry being at Empire City, Coos Bay, and the Collector appointed to the District, David Bushey. Special Agernt Leighton will proceed thither in few days to organize the District. IPAJTO Doixa—The charter election in Mormtown, K. J., has resulted in an almost complete victory for the Democrats. The council now stands aeren Democrats to two Republicans, and it is the first time that the city has passed into the hands of the Democ racy. interest on the bonds sold to build the Oregon and California Bail toad amounts to the snug sum of two thousand dollars per day. A MOVE I* THE IWHT DIRECTION. Tin' notion of the X;rj Francisco Ho .nl of Supervisors i< 11 k(-1 vto check the rJafming influx of Chinese to the Coast, and haft already elicited a pro test from the large Chinese companies addressed to their countrymen, advising them to remain at home, at least until the present excitement subsides. An ordinance is under consideration to amputate the pig-tails of all Chinamen sentenced to imprisonment in the Coun ty Jail; another to prohibit the removal of the remains of dead Chinamen, and still another imposing a license of sls per quarter upon each Chinaman work ing in laundries. Besides these de termined measures, which under the present stress of public opinion will be adopted, resolutions were passed, which will be submitted to the public for sig natures, pledging the faith of the sign ers that they will employ no Chinaman in any capacity nor patronize any body who does so. These measures, taken fts a whole, will effect a radical change in the situation of affairs, so far as the city and county of San Francisco are concerned, and should and doubtless will be adopted throughout the State as a last resort demanded by the pe culiar exigencies of tfie times. Then Oregon and the Territories will have a precedent established for wholesome legislation regulating this growing evil to the principal industrial interests of the entire community. We had hardly expected this prompt and decided action, in view of the construction generally placed upon the treaty stipulations between the two countries, and had looked in vain for some definite plan for even checking | the flow of this pest to the Coast. That the present movement has already ! had this effect is apparent from the dis j patches published in our last issue. What more it will accomplish remains to be seen. Let us hope that it will result in the return of these minions of Mammon to the "flowery kingdom," where they can practice their heathenish rites and swallow their rice and rat-pies without fear or molestation. THE NEW DISEASE.—A correspondent of the Seattle Intelligencer says that there is no reason to apprehend a visi tation of that new disease with a fear ful name—the Cerebro-Spinal Mengin itis —in this locality, as our mild temperature is not favorable to its development. He affirms that it seldom prevails but whore the extremes of tem perature prevail; should it happen in this climate it would be very likely to be in a modified form. With children it usually develops slowly, and with proper care and treatment is readily controlled. With adults it is more rap id and frequently proves fatal in from six to twenty-four hours. In a north ern latitude it is never contagious but is frequently epidemic. But one case has ever been known in Seattle, and that recovered. LECTURES. —Prof. Chaney closed bis course of lectures on Tuesday evening, the last being on " The Summer Land," illustrated by a beautiful painting in which the artist portrays his idea of the New Jerusalem. The lecture incul cated the doctrine of an eternal happi ness through good works in this life rather than salvation through grace. The Professor made an exceedingly strong argument in support of his po sition, and although a challenge was published for anybody to appear in sup port of the orthodox faith, it was not accepted. If, therefore, any of the sheep have strayed from the fold it may be attributed to a want of vigilance of the shepherd rather than waywardness of the dock. PCOET SOUND BAPTIST ASSOCIATION.— The intention of this Association to m'eet this year at Steilacoom has been changed. It will hold its third annual meeting in the Baptist chapel in this place, on the 27th in stant. A full at tendance is desired, particularly of members of all sister churches of like faith. The general public lire also cor dially invited to be present si the ex ercises. steamer California, arrived tare Wednesday morning, from Port land, with a large freight for our mer chants. She stopped at Steilacoom, in returning, and discharged some railroad supplies for the construction parties operating in Pierce county. The steamer Alida has been un dergoing repairs. Tie spons ins have been removed and the hull and up per works have received a new coat of paint. It is expected that she will make much better time freed from the burden of an extra hull. S3" The Courier learns that on the 27th ult. the dwelling-house of Mr. Marion Byrd, situated some six miles from Seattle, was entirely consumed by fire, together with its entire contents. Daniel. Address H-. Good time, Steil acoom. L'J '1 . ..II ,1. NAVIGATION Of THE COLUMBIA. In response to nn invitation of the eiluena of Dayton, addressed to Judge McFiidden, to visit that place while in Wall* Walla county, he indited the fol lowing letter, which is of sufficient pub lic interest to warrant its publication: Wan WAIXA, May 16th, 1873. To L. C. Wail, Elixha Piny, 1). B. Kim bull, and other*, ciliieim »f JJaulon If. r.: GENTLEMEN, —Yours of the 12th inst. was duly received, inviting me to, and tendering to me the hospitalities of your beautiful and promising city. I regret that circumstances prevent me from acceding to your request. My engage ments are such that I am under the ne cessity of returning to the western part of the Territory the latter part of this week, not leaving me time to close my en gagements here, and gratify myself by a visit to the good people of your town. I expect to start East about the first of September, for the purpose of discharg ing as I best can, the duties which the people have devolved on me as their del egate in the 43d Congress. I have only to say, my best energies shall bo devolved to the development of the interests of our Territory. I have no interests except such as are in common with the whole people. The future prosperity and advancement of the whole Territory, in all of her male rial interests—her agricultural, manu facturing, commercial and mineral; these are the cherished objects of iny ambition. You have here, east of the mountains, a country of wonderful ca pacity for production, with a climate making it a most desirable place to live, and the only drawback to your steady and vigorous growth is the embargo nature has laid upon your means of transportation. The Columbia river, so rich in magnificent scenery, with a volume of water sufficient, on the re moval of her obstructions, to float the commerce of the Pacific, and which might truly be regarded as the pathway of empire, should be placed in condition bv the Federal Government—by the removal of the obstructions at the Cas cades and the Dalles—to make the same free and open to the sen. Should this be done you have an outlet to the markets of the world. Congress should at an early day provide for a practical and scientific survey of this river under the direction of the Secretary of War; an estimate should be made by the Government of the cost, and a report upon the character of the improvements best calculated to remove the obstruc tions, and for this purpose Congress should at once make an appropriation. Should the report of the survey indicate the practicability of this improvement, as we believe it will, there should then be no hesitation in making the necessary arrangements for the consummation of this great enterprise. When this is done, and the connecting links of the North Pacific Railroad are completed, a new era of prosperity will have dawned upon our people, "and in a few years our Territory, now comparatively feeble, will be developed into a great, prosperous and free commonwealth, reflecting a lustre as a member of the great galaxy of States, worthy of the honored name she bears. It shall be an earnest effort on my part, in the ap proaching Congress to labor for the passage of a joint resolution providing for this survey and estimates. With the aid which I hope to receive from the public-spirited men of the country I hope to be successful. I will be pleased at all times to hear from you, and receive suggestions from our people on this or other subjects of interest. With regrets that lam un able to see you in person, I have the honor to be Your humble servant, » O. B. MCFADDEN. " PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY." —Eleven " Granges" of this Order have already been organized in California. Probably in less than another year every agricul tural county in the State will have its Grange. The Order is popular among the farmers, for whose special benefit it was originally founded. In several quarters the Granges are asked to take part in the selection of candidates—to insure good men—for office. DEATH OF A PIONEER. —John R. Jack son, Esq., one of the oldest and most respected citizens of Lewis county, died at his home on the Cowlitz, on the 25th ult. Deceased was 72 years of age, nearly half of which have been passed in this Territory. All the older settlers remember the many manly vir tues of the deceased and will drop a tear to his memory. W Our friends of the Courier the Tribune and the Intelligencer have al ready been supplied with strawberries, and we are partiently awaiting our turn. We hope they won't all be sent at once, however, but come in reasonably large quantities and" often. sy We understand that the people of Seattle are considerably agitated upoi} the subject of common schools. The latest proposition is to adopt the Oregon system of instruction so far as it is applicable under our statutes. GREAT FIRE n» BOSTON. —The tele graphic dispatches give an account of another disastrous conflagration in Bos ton. The less is estimated at $2,000,- 000. T&" A twenty-thousand dollar sub scription has been started in New York city for the widow of General Canbv. ____ Z : - ~7T, —r S3" The epizootic has broken out S3T Crops look well m Clark county. l a g a i n in New York. SMART. —It i« raid that Mr. P. D.! Moore, who has discharged clerical duties iu the Custom-house for several years past, met Mr. Garfielde at the door when he entered upon his newly acquired honors, Pout Oh ai m and hat in hand, and with one of his Chester fieldian bows inquired if his services were longer required in collecting Uncle Samuel's duties. Mr. Garfielde, with his cool dignity.implied: "Certainly— temporarily." " Then, sa : d the urbane P. D., "Good morning, I canoot ac cept a temporary position." For once, Gartielde was completely nonplussed; and as the graceful form of the Deputy Collector disappeared from view, he culled lustily for him to return and again assume the cast-off habiliments of office. It is said that Mr. Moore accepted the position as a permanent billet, with thanks, and Tom Reed languishes in bitterness of spirit over hopes long deferred. Mr. Moore's re liance upon Garfielde's promise, is the part of the story too difficult to believe in this vicinity. Be patient, friend Reed, your time will come soon as Selu cius is acquainted with the routine of office. SSF Two tons of patent office reports were received this week for Selucius Garfielde. These who have been ex pecting books, on Garfielde's promises, now know where they are. Selucius concluded that as his cake turned out to be dough in the last campaign, he was under no obligation to the people, and would keep all the books furnished for distribution to them for his own use. Who says our late Delegate hasn't an eye to business ? RESUKIIECTION. —The daily Courier, after a brief descent into the infernal regions, has risen and is now undergo ing judgment for the deeds done in the fleshy It is now published as a moruing paper, by Messrs. Bagley & Harned. We wish the boys success but the political ring they represent eternal damnation. I# Two Kanakas and a squaw have been arrested at Victoria on suspicion of having been implicated in the Dwyer murder on San Juan Island, a short time ago. Sheriff Billings went over to bring them to this side but they had not yet had their preliminary examina iion and he returned without them. J®* During Gen. Grant's recent visit to Chicago, the city ordinance prohibit ing fast driving on the grand boulevard, was temporarily suspended in his honor. This was doubtless the most acceptable compliment the Great Horse Jockey could receive. LIBERAL DONATION.—A donation of SSO has just beeu received by the First Unitarian Society of this place, from Mrs. J. C. Kimball, who is now residing in Newport, R. 1., where her husband has accepted a pastorial charge. FIIEE EXCURSION. —The steamer North Pacific makes a free excursion trip to Seattle to-day, touching at Steilacoom and Tacoma. Doubtless many of our citizens will avail themselves of this generous treat of Capt. Starr. IThe Ikacon announces that Capt. Ainsworth, of the Ctregon Steam Navi gation Co., has been elected a Director of the Northern Pacific Railroad and ap pointed Resident Managing Director of the Pacific Division. 19* The names of Ben Butler, Sen ator Conkling and Attorney-General Williams are mentioned at Washington in connection with the position of Chief Justice made vacant by the death of Judge Chase. SSC Gov. Ferry has pardoned Jas. Jamieson out of the Penitentiary. Jarnieson was convicted of rape in 1870 and sentenced for a term of fifteen years. DIED. —Hon. J. D. Potter, of Van couver, died in that place, of consump tion, on the 26th inst. He leaves a wife and three small children. Seattle Coal Company is said to have temporarily suspended op erations, in consequence of a glut in the market at San Francisco. S3T The Sisters of Charity contem plate the erection of a new school build ing at Vancouver that will cost upwards of S<JO,OOO. t&~ Next week th« cars will com mence taking rails to the front for Montgomery's extension. G. Lowe & Co., have just erected a handsome staff from which to float their express flag. ty The late rains have revived vege tation and caused Nature to put on her brightest garb. Cy The spire on the Presbyterian Church is finished except the painting. S3T The railroad, it is said, will ran within seven miles of Steilucoom. TELEGRAPHIC. ! LATKB FROM TDK ATLANTIC VTA TIB. Otwi Pin la Bodaa, BOSTON, May 80—3 p. M. —lt fa im possible now to give all the losses or even the names of all the losers by the lire to-day, but Washington street on the west side, from Avery street to Boyleston street, is nearly or quite de stroyed; on the other side, from Hay wood Place to Essex street, theie is lit tle left to show what existed there this morning. Benjamin Cushing, of the Board of Assessors, estimates the total loss at $'2,000,000. The report of the fire telegraphed to Burrouuding towns brought thousands of people to witness it. Every train in ward-bound was crowded with anxious business men and sensation seekers. There conld not have been less than one hundred thousand persons near the scene of the fire when it was at its hight. The Globe Theater Company saved nearly all their wardrobe, tue Western Union Telegraph Company lost fifteen wires by the fire, and com munication is interrupted. The Free man's National Bank have not opened their vault; they have reason to believe that their securities are safe. When discovered the fire was in the upper floor of Haley, Morse A Co's warehouse, among workshops, and the flames were issuing from the roof. Piles of light material packed away, were all so much tinder. The heat was intense, and in twenty minutes the upper story of the building from front to rear, 200 feet, was a mass of flames. The fire worked its way to Brunstead Place, which runs out of Boylston street, near Washington, and destroyed it. The walls of the immense edifice fell in and crushed to atoms the exten sive gallery of Jourdan, with all the stores beneath it. On the opposite corner, FftJ' Court, the flame soon spread to another great building adjacent, and that was also destroyed, includingNos. 403, 405 and 407 Washington street. Chicker ing's splendid granite building and the Globe Theatre are in ruins. The fire has also caught the steeplo of the Pres byterian Church, corner of Beach and Harrison Avenue. 11 A. M. —The rear of Chauncy street is threatened, both from Haywood place and Sussex street, and the fine square bounded by thest streets, and Washington street, which is not al ready destroyed, is being abandoned by the occupants. Niibicrlptlnn t<» Aid Hunan 11. Anthony. ROCHESTER, N. Y., May 31. —Efforts are making to raise a subscription to aid Susan B. Anthony to defend her self against the indictment, of voting at the last general election. Since the in dictment was found, she has stumped Monroe county so effectually that the Sheriff reports that he cannot find a jury unprejudiced iu hor favor. Venire will consequently be changed to On tario. Women's Rights leaders say that if she is acquitted all womei will vote at the next election.. BALTIMORE, June I.—Arrangemsnts ut'6 being made for n natioi al conven tion of Irish-born citizens, to be held in Clevelan 1, Oliio, loth of Ju'y ne: t, for the purpose of forming u league, similar to the German Union. Some of the leading Irishmen of New York, Philadelphia and other cities have ar ranged the movement on the ground thut Irish element in this country lias not the standing politically or commer cially to which their numbers and im portance entitles then. They say that the Germans excel them in almost every thing, and this is due to their default of co-operation and harmony, and to reli gious and political contention. Irish men, like members of the German Union, will be pledged to support ono another in preference to persons of other nationalities, without any distinc tion of sect or jtorty. NEW YORK, May 30.—George Francis Train, it is said, will sue the city for false imprisonment, claiming 9100,000 damages. May 31.—Tho funeral of Mrs. Neil son, daughter of the late James Brooks, took place today from Grace Church, the Rev. Dr. Potter, rector, officiating. There was a large attendance of rela tions and friendß of the family. HALIFAX, June 2.—News has been received here of the total wreck of the missionary ship Day Spring in the New Hebrides. The vessel was built ten years ago by the Presbyterians of these Provinces for missionary service in the South Sea. NEW YORK, June 4. —There is no truth whatever in the stories that the Cabinet have discussed the proper dis position of the captured Modocs. The reported statements of the different views expressed bv Sherman and De lano is probably based on the well known differences between the military and civil authorities relative to the In dian question. WASHINGTON, June 2.—John A. Bing ham has been appointed Minister to Japan. June 2.—The Public Debt has de creased $3,526,282 during the past mouth. NEW YORK, June 2.—lt is said that Henry Wurd Beecher has been some what annoyed by the sharp criticism in some of the daily papers on the action of Theodore Tilton as a witness to the famous retraction of Bowen's charges, and that he has resolved to come to Tilton's defense. After consulting with several friends he has prepared a statement exonerating Tilton from all blame in connection with the horrible scandal with which his name is asso ciated. Mr. Beecher wrote the state ment this morning. It refers to Til ton's action as that of a friend who desired to reunite Bowen and Boecher, and how the retraction was made. Mr. Clafiin was, it is said, instrumental in bringing about the retraction, which bears the signatures of Bowen, Beecher nnd Til ton. The retraction, it is said was drkwn up by Samuel Wilkinson » friend of Beecher, and after the docu ment wan signed it was handed to Claf lin for safe keeping. Wilkinson, how ever, liad tiinde a copy, and gave' it to the prco.i Utttweek. Bnm>M; jfune leaves for Chicago .tomorrow morning, and hi« full band of forty pieces will follow ou Thursday. Great interest is felt here in the success of the Jubilee. TAUVORNIA. SAN FUANCISCO, June 2.—A fire on Third street today destroyed Rosen thal's furniture storfc—lbss, $20,000; New York Photograph Gallery, lii the amount of about IU0.000; Walsh's boot and shoe store, f 14,000. Much of the damage was caused by water. Coinage at tho mint during Mar • $2,772,000. " Workmen broke ground today for the Clay street Hill Railroad. * The cars on this road are to be propelled up and down the long steep grade by means of a stationary engine. A committee of the Mechanics' De liberative Assembly will address the Board of Supervisors this evening on the subject of a receiving ship for idle' and dissolute boys. Thirteen business fiimi refused to' sign the Anti-Chinese petitions, anS their names are to be reported to tho House Carpenters' League tonight. Asher M. Bates, for years counsellor for King Kamehameba and Secretary of tho United States Bankruptcy Court in this city, died yesterday, after an illness of over a year. The House Carpenters' League has joined the People's Anti-Chinese Pro tective Alliance. At the annual meeting of the Regents of the State University, yesterday af ternoon, » resolution wan passed ap propriating i.')oo per month as sa laries to professors during the pre sent year. Samuel Jones was ap pointed Professor of Military Science, with a salary of $3,000 per annum. Dr. Logan, of Sacramento, was invited to accept the Professorship of the Hy gienic Depart ment, Dr. Shurtleff that of Mental Diseases and Medical Juris prudence, Dr. A. It. Stout of Surgery, and Dr. Hatch, of Sacramento, of Ma teria Medicn. The beads of the Chinese companies are much concerned about tho recent uction taken against the Chinese. Some of them say tho Chinamen would form a town by themselves bevond the limits of tho city if they could be protected there by tho Doard of Supervisors. Tlyoutfh Mr. Gibson they say they arc ready for tho abrogation of the treaty,- will tako all the Chinese from Cali- TIIIC LAVA IIEDM. Murrrmltr of tlio Mod »e» Cufitaln Jark m Prisonrr with all kit Brovcs. From (Jreon's camp, LangoH's Val ley, Lost Kiver, Oregon, we have re ceived the following dispatch, under date of .May 31st, evening: After a thorough examination of the Modoc captives gathered in during the present scout under Col. Green, it >» ascertained that the last band netted us thirty-four men, women and child ren, thirteen were able bodied war riors. Wo also obtained sixteen ri fles of various patterns, one hundred and thirteen cartridges an 1 several lean and hungry ponies. Boston Clmrley ami Sconchin are anx iotiH about the disposition to be made of them. The former murdered Dr. Thomas and the latter mutilated Meat-h --am. Boston and Sconchin look like desparadoes. Each carries his charac ter in his face. Boston is about twen ty-eight and Sionchin is fifty. The boldest warrior of the band in Scar-faced Charley, a man of thirty years, quick, wiry and weighing 150 pounds. He takes his name from an ugly near on his right cheek, which is the relic of a wound received years ago from a stage accident. He is the only warrior who would not cease fightiug and lay down his gun at the tight on Lost river. Dr. Cubanis, of Yreka, the contract surgeon, who piloted the Modocs into camp this moruiug, after sleeping all night in their retreat, says of Captain Jack, that he presented a woe-begoiio appearance. The wily warrior sas upon • rock in the < e .tie of a little lava bed, twenty yards back from the crest of tho bluff, and seemed as lonely as bity sur roundings. He was wrapped in a fad ed army blanket and nis head was buried in his hands. His sister Mary, captured at Willow Creek day before vesterday, talked to him with tears in her eyes and asked him to enter our camp. He was sullen and had little to say. He did promise to surrender to day. In the night he stole away. The Modocs say Jack is insane. There is much method iu his mania. He sees the end of a rope, and is taking advantage of the dodge practised by sharp whites. At present he is thought to be in this neighborhood with froui three to five warriors. There are twelve Modoc warriors at large now. AITLEQATE HOUSE, CI.KAK LAKE, Cal., June 1, 3:30 p. m.—A series of pro longed yells and cheers aroused this camp from a pleasant siesta half an hour after the departure of my last courier. General Davis, General Wheatou and other officers, und all the men rushed from the house and tent to find the cause of the uproar, and at once the whole camp was in an uproar. Down the level plain, north of the bouse, was a grand cavulcade of monnted horeemeu. The steeds rushed forward at a furious rate and soon neared the groups of spectators scattered about the premises. '' Captain Jack is cifftured!' ißhouted a sturdy sergeant. Again ttie valley echoed with cheers and yells. The mounted command was that of Perry. He had returned from a scout of twenty three hours. Three miles above the mouth of Willow Creek, at half-past ten o'clock this morning, the Warm Spring scouts struck a hot trail. After a brief search tho Modocs were discov-
