A Courtship Bomantically Begun
During the War, Bomantically
Ended in California.
The marriage of George Karsiall and
Ellen 3Iayfield, which occured at the Grand
Hotel a few days since, was an event highly
spiced with romance. The couple first met
hi the troublesome time of 1862, at a farm
house on the road between Harper's Perry
and Leechburg,when Marshall, as a Union
soldier,attached to a STew Jersey regiment,
rescued the lady from an outrage at the
Jiands of two confederate soldiers. After the
battle of Antietam they met again, when
IMiss Mayfield, attended by other ladies was
administering to the wounded upon the
battlefield. In a wounded Lieutenant,
who was lying in a barn, she recognized
her recuor and procured his removal to her
father's residence in Adams county, Penn.,
where she nursed him tenderly until his re
covery. Xarhhall was subsequently as
signed to a distant department. In time,
ii3 letters remaining unanswered, he con
cluded his fair friend had considered her
debt of gratitude canceled, and abandoned
him for some old love. He came to Cali
fornia at the termination of the war, and
rettled in business at San Jose. A few
days since his eye caught the name of
l'!Miss Ellen layfield" among the lUt of
averland passengers. Elated with hope,
lie lost no time in proceeding to Sacramento
to meet the train that bore the object of his
Sections and the picture of his reveries
through the long years of separation . The
faceting was mutually happy, and the mar
rjago announcement that followed shortly
after tells the remainder of the story. The
estrangement had been caused by the in
tercepting of letters by a meddlesome per
ron supposed to be interested in the break
up of the match.
Palace Gar Comforts. Sancho Pan
a blessed the man who invented sleep,
and I ask space in your columns to damn
the men .who are "constantly murdering it
en the Pullman palace cars. The porters
and conductors of these coaches assume the
right to wako people up whenever they
pleascafter 4aylight, without regard to the
place or time at which they sought the rest
for which they pay so liberally. I took a
birth at Indianapolis at 2 a.m. a few mo
ments ago, expecting to sleep most of t&e
way to St. Xouis, where the train i& due
about noon, Before G o'colck the porter
was round, waking up the passengers for
breakf art which was then more than two
hours onr-and I was one of his first victims.
It was vain to protect, and besides, I was in
no humor for it. I thought it best to submit
silence, so I rubbed my eyes,cursed Pull
man Car-Company in general and the coach
I was in in particular, and went to the wash
room to find six men ahead of me waiting
their turn at a scanty supply of water and
a soiled towel.

years before it was removed to its present

Dr. Borzeau's Small Pox Core
As this most loathsome of all disoasos is li
able to break out amoung us at any time, it is
well to bo prepared for it at all times.
Dr. Borzeau's Small-Pox Curo and Preven
tive, now prepared and kept on hand at my
office, corner first and Main streets, one door
from First, is asuro cure or preventive for
that disease. The history of this medicine
can not better bo explained by mo than by
inserting the following somewhat condensed
lettors. SAMUEL COR WIN, Proprietor.
Sax Francisco, July 2, 1872..
My dear old friend, Samuol Corwin I havo
no doubt but you will bo much surprised on
receiving this letter, but, porhaps, not more so,
or more gratified, than I was to hear from
you. The manner in which I heard from you,
and learned of your whereabouts, is this: I
happened to bo looking over an Oregon news
paper and noticed your name, as Representa
tive elect, from Tillamook county. The thrill
of pleasure which I experienced en reading, is
indiscribable. The many acts of kindnoss
which I received at your hands long years ago
have never been forgotten, notwithstanding
our correspondence has boon broken for 17
years. Well, Sam, I won't attempt to give
you more than tho outlines of what has tran
spired with mo since wo last corresponded.
So many incidents of tho past, in which you
and I were connected, crowd upon my mfnd
that I cannot think or write of myself. Does
your mind over revert to tho past, when wo
first met how you took mo in as a partner,
when those who ought to have been my best
friends threw off on me how wo got snowed
in and had to live on potatoes straight for six
weoks how good that grizzloy meat tasted
what a disgraceful retreat wo mado from our
poor innocent Jack, when wo thought wo were
besieged by a grizzley. Well, Sam, those
events of 1852 frequently furnish subject mat
ter for my thoughts, and, as I am writing to
you, crowd upon ray mind, but I will dismiss
them for the present to give place to that which
will, perhaps, bo of greater interest to you.
I pocketed eleven thousand dollars out of tho
" Deep Claim" you gave mo in Marapdsa, and
started for homo in June, ISoo. I invested
four thousand dollars in real estate in this
city, and left it in care of McLano,. our old
cabin mate. My property hero has yielded
mo a handsome income, and quadrupled in
value. I went into businesin Now York city,
in which I was very successful sold out two
years ago, since which time I havo been trav
eling through tho European countries. You
know I used to havo a weakness for traveling;
well, it has been gratified to my heart's con
tent. While in Prance I was taken with tho
small-pox. Tho lady of the inn told me that I
was fortunate to take tho disease at that place,
as thero was an old small-pox doctor near by
who never failed to curo, no matter how baa
tho disease; and sure enough, I began to re
cover within four hours aftor commencing to
tako tho medicine, and in twenty-four hours
1 felt quite well. I was so much elated with
tho magical effects of the medicine that I was
determined, if possible, to obtain tho formula,
in which 1 succeeded, by paying handsomely
and promising not to divulge it in Franco.
1 seo from Oregon papers that you have tho
disease among you. Tho enclosed package
contains tho formula and, sufficient material
for familv uso. I havo cured all tho cases
thatl havo come in contract with, and find it
an infallible cure and preventive. A hen you
answer this, I will forward sufficient of tho
material to mako you" a fortune, as I havo am
ple, and rest assured I reciprocato past favors.
1 will oloso for thqnresent and await anxi
ously your answer. i?irect to San Francisco,
as 1 will remain hero about two months.
Yours etc., ISAAC RICHARDSON.
When I received this medicine, there being
no small-pox in tho Stato of Oregon, I sent
packages to a number of places in California
and other States, to bo properly tested, al
though my own confidence in its virtuo was
completely established by the source from
which I obtained it. Tho following letters
were duly received from tho parties to whom I
sent test packages of tho medicine:
Sacuvmento, Cal , Dec.. 27, 1S72.
Samuol Corwin, Nchalom, Oregon Dear
Sir: 1 have tho pleasure of communicating to
you the fact I had an opportunity at last of
testing tho elficiency of your preparation for
tho cure ot small-pox. -lr. A. lvoysor, amend
of mine, was taken with the small-pox Dec
ember 18 th. 1 learned tho fact about six
o'clock on tho evening of the lWh, and started
immediately for the residence of Mr. K., sit
uated about fourteen miles from here, towards
Cache Creek, Yolo county. 1 got to K.'s place
just twenty minutes before twelve o'clock, and
commenced giving tho medicine precisely at
twelve o'clock. Continued to give tho medi
cine every hour until twelve o'ofock next ovo
ning, having givon twenty-nine doses; and,
without further aid, K. recovered, and is now
as well as ever, without any visible signs of
ever having had the' disease. All of us who
were exposed, took of tho medicine as a pre
ventive, and l havo no doubt, oy so eunng,
were kept from getting the disease.
Yours etc., JAMES UASBI2T.
Fkrndvle, Humboldt Co.Cnl.Fob.l 1CT3.
Eriend Corwin Your small-pox curo proved
quite a God-send to this community lately. 1
had tho satisfaction of curing three of our
townsmen of tho small-pox lately. Now, I
am out of medicine, and I want you to send
about a thousand bottles, or sond an agent sent the interest, has of necessity been neg

agent in every town in California. I am get
ting up a statoment, with tho signature of tho
parties knowing tho facts, and will send it
soon. Accoptour thanks, etc.,

No person should bo without this medicine,
as the disease is now in various parts of the
country, and may be among us any day. It is
an old and true adage, that " An ounco of .pre
ventive is worth a pound of cure"" Tis a
wise man that carries his coat on a fair day,"

Tho Paper "will "be independent of politics
in all its views, expressed or implied, and
will be conducted with the aim in view to
make it wholly and tolely devoted to the
beat interests of this State. The Com
merce of Oregon, its Agricultural, Manu
facturing and Mechanical interests, the
progress and prosperity of the people, will
receive special attention. TheAsTORiAN
will recognize the Farmers and Mechanics
of Oregon as men of thought and judg
ment, and will respect their efforts to make
their influence known and recognized in
the marts of trade, in the counting rooms
of business, and in the halls of legislation.
"We shall neither make nor encourage a
war upon, nor wage any conflicts with, any
enterprises, associations or men engaged in
legitimate pursuits where success depends
upon the interest and continued earnestness
of the people. "While we shall endeavor to
show the truthfulness of the old maxim,
that " the laws favor the diligent," weshall
strive to narmomze interests caicuiatep. to
be of direct benefit to the State.
Astoria is the sea port of Oregon, has an
excellent harbor, and vessels of the deep
est draught enter in perfect safety at all sea
sons. Camparative statistics show less per
cent, of losses on the Columbia River lSar
for .the past twenty years, than at the en
trance to any other port in the United
States, and the facts may be easily pro
duced to show the fallacies of such wide
discriminations by underwriters and in
surers, in iavorof other ports, and against
the port of Oregon. It was the Gold Min
ing excitements of 1S49 that built up Cali
fornia so rapidly as to overshadow and out
strip this part of the northwest possessions,
at a time when the first propositions for
communication between 2scw York and
Astoria were about to be inaugurated.
The gold discovery of 1S49 set Oregon back
ana maue our sister oiate wnat sne is.
Now. things are upon a more equal footing,
with lands and Agriculture for a basis of
future operations with the diflerence in
favor of Oregon in her cheap lands and va
ried natural resources yet undeveloped.
Tempoiarily there is a stringency in the
money market, but business generally con
tinues good, and as many vessels are em
ployed in the carrying tiade, if not more,
than in past years of our prosperity. A few
more acers planted, a few more fish and
oj'sters marketed, a few more tons of coal
and iron mined, more home rescources de
veloped and manufactories established,
will improve the outlook very much.
The history of Astoria is full of interest
from the arrivals of Captain Gray in the
Summer of 1792 to the 'present time, all of
which will receive due attention. The ar
rivals and departures of vessels at Astoria,
and the business of the surrounding coun
