BEPl'BHCAXISM IX SPAI3T.
Telegraphic dispatches from the
East seem to indicate, -within af'short
time the Republicans inSpain will
rhave the upper'fcands, arfd"whip ovA
their old enemies. A cablegram of
the 29th contains the following, from
'Madrid, Bayone and Malaga:
'Lovnl troops at Seville moved Againbt
the insurecentb on the 28th, and after two
-2iours of fighting gained and held the lead
ing strategic points in the city. It is ex
pected that the insurgent will he complete
ly overpowered on Tuesday.
The Carlists have been defeated in 2f e
varro, and seven hundred Republican
" prisoners have been released by the victo
The Carli-t force which has been laying
seige to Berga, made an attack upon the
"town on the 26th, but mot with a repulse.
The fighting on the 28th was severe all
day. The inurgeuts occupied the churches
of San Nicholas and San Martin, and the
Plaza which had been strongly barricaded.
The m looses are heavy. Three hundred
barricades are erected in the heart of the
Should the Republicans hold their
own, it would prove them and their
cause worthy of each other. Should
'they eventually triumph over their
enemies; over the Internationalists
; as well as the Carlists, it would be
little less than wonderful. For it is
not merely these who are opposing
vthem. They have received no word
of sympathy from the monarchies of
Europe. Even the French Govern
ment, which pretends to be Republi
can, not only gives no aid or -support
in word or deed, but allows ier own
territories near the Spanish borders
to be occupied, orised by the. Car
lists as a convenient position for them,
in which to plot and plan and form
plans for invasion of the Spanisli
Provinces, and from, whence, as it
suits them, to commence their as
saults upon Spain. And England,
apparently forgetting the effects of
her violation of international law in
our war of the Rebellion, and for
which she found herself in trouble,
now, as then, allows .her merchants
cand shipping-men to re-enact the
wrong by smuggling arms and ammu
nition into the ports cf Biscay, for
Don Carlos and his adherents. Spain
has literally all the geygrnment of
Europe against her as .a Republican
nation, with the exception, perhaps,
of Switzerland. If she puUs through
such odds she will deserve the com
mendation and congratulations of all
lovers of freedom, the world over.
The Farmer's Granges are getting
to be an acknowledged power.in the
land, and their action has had -some
effect on the policy of the general
government, even. "We note theibl
Jowing in a New York dispatch to
the Boston Advertiser of the 1st uit:
" In an indirect way the grangesliave
been useful to the syndicate for Ras
ing the new loan, by creating distrust
of railroad securities and turning in
vestors to government bonds.' 1 'The
same paper says that the grange .at
Mansfield. Mass.. has purchased 4i
quantity of tea, coffee and raisins of
a Boston firm, at a saving of thirty
two per cent, on the whole, and now
it is going for some fish and spice.
"When Dr. Bayley was chosen 1g
the town Council of Corvallis, last
Spring, it was with the express ob
ject of opposing any effort on the part
of Salemites to force tlie Capitohipsn
Corvalli. As no injunction kashosn
served, and as the Capitol seems to be
jjoing up, it is safe to say that Salem
Avill sutler the infliction"
"Work on the new Capitol .build
ing at Salem is progressing rapidly.
The disbursements are are about 9,-
000 per month. Krumbien 0 Gilbert
are the architects.
The new Court-house at Salem
is finished, but the $40,000 debt is
not paid. " A public debt is a public
blessing. ' '
Hon. J. W. Nesmith, Ex-United
States Senator, is spoken of promi
nently as a candidate for Congress on
the I)emocratic side.

B. end "jOld Salt:"
Astoria, Ifuly 2S, 1S73. .
"When the committee of the Astoria
Chamber (Commerce accepted the work
of making a report betting forth the fact
a, contained therein, -arid publbhcd in the
Astohian, and other papers throughout
the State, we expected criticism -from the
Press, butl mu-t say that it has been quite
'flattering to find that without an exception
thev have spoken of it with fairness, and
that thoscjjournals having the beat oppor
tunities for knowing its correctness, have
noticed it with particular lavor. But the
Committee have have had their attention
called to an anonymous communication,
in the "Willamette Farmer of July PJth,
signed 13., no doubt written by some fgno
rant 'Booby" (fed all his life with a spoon
judging from the amount of confidence
he has in Uncle barn's twenty-lour loot
dredger-spoon,") containing a number of
iaise asseitions, prouauiy tola lo nun oy
some one else who was ashamed to put his
name to them. Thev are really not worth
the time spent in reading them, and aie
considered by all who know anything about
the matter, as a weak effort on the part of
some conceited stripling to enlighten the
farmers of Oregon, alter being stuliljd for
a few hours by some interested party.
Concerning the statement of the com
mittee that " no storms have visited the
harbor that effected any damage to ship
ping riding at anchor in the bay or at the
the wharf," B. says, "the committee tor
got the iact that a sudden squall threw the
large ship "Windward on her beam ends
a year ago, and her masts ana rigging
were cut way before she was righted." It'
B. knew -anything -of what he wa. writing
about he would know that the Windward
was more than ten miles below Astoria
where she was dismasted, and if she had
been properly ballasted the accident might
not have occurred. "When the tug reached
her the da.v after crossing the bar, for the
purpose of bringing her up to Astoria, the
wind was blowing s? iheavilv that thetug
could not move her, -ana during the night
(a strong tide running against the wind),
the ship swung across the tide so that the
gale of wind blowing in oncdirection, and
the strong tide running in the other, threw
her over on her beams end, and the Pilot
in charge, after consultation with the Cap
tain, tearing she would drag her anchors
and drift on Sand Island or into the break
ers, had her masts cut au-ey when she at
once righted up. Had the "Windward
been loaded, or sufficiently ballasted, she
would not have lost herjnasts even in the
most exposed position this side the bar.
B. next whines about the small amount
of the appropriation our representation in
'Congress secure for Oregon and says "Cali-
lornia s share ot the appropriation tor
various governmental improvements was
ten times-greater than was last year voted
to Oregon." The appropriation bill last
3Tear rends, " tor the improvement of the
lower "Willamette and Columbia rivers,
from Portland, Oregon, to the sea, 20,000;
for the impiovement of the upper Willam
ette river, Oregon, 3,000; for the improve-
iiiuub ui uiuiuvuLui ia i limiiiLvjii, Cali
fornia, 150,000." Not one dollar of the
California appropriation is spent on dredg
ing shifting quick sands, that require ap
propriations year after year, amounting to
more than the annual cost of transporting
the entire products of the State. -These
appropriations have already been made
from year to year to dig out the mouth of
the Willamette river and Swan-Islandbar,
and if B., or any one in Portland, expect
to dig a channel from Astoria to Portland,
one hundred and ten miles, we advise
them to immediately begin the construc
tion of a dozen dredgers, and the formation
of a credit mobilier to buy up Uongress to
make the appropriations necessary. z
Money spent in the improvement of the
upper Willamette and Columbia rivers,
above the drilling sands, will undoubtedly
do an immense amount of good, and the
more the better, we say.
In reference to the matter of demurrage,
six days at-60 300, (this should have
been 100 per day), B. says: " There is not
a man. en that committee that can give an
intelligent reason why this item was added
except that thoy wanted to reach the item
of four cents per bushel on a ship's cargo."
Ships "and crows are not employed as cheap
ly as ink slingers of his class. This falsi
fier .continues, "but the cost of getting
wheat from Portland to Astoria by other
means than in a ships' hold, could not by
airy Kseans be less than four cents per bush-
el; the Oregon Steam Navigation Co.'s
'Ok&rgcs arc double that." The Oregon
dteain navigation uompany iast year
charged 1 50 per ton lighterage on wheat
from Portland to Astoria, four and one
halt cents per bushel. Responsible parties
are williug to contract to bring it from
Portland to Astoria for three cents per
Rwoby saTs " the Middlesex is now at
Portland and will load on 1,500 tons wheat
before dropping below to finish her cargo,"
as he is told by somebody. The Middlesex
brought do less than ii00 ton in her hold,
and with this amount on board was de
tained at tho hojc'b-back twenty-four hours
lying aground one tide, and one hundred
on& of the cargo had to be removed before
she was towed over and down to this port,
where .he arrived on the evening of the
2Sth, two days and a half from Portland.
13. further .states that " the Middlesex,
1,800 tons register, belongs to that class of
j:irger vessels piymg on mis siue oi me
Pacific waters of which there are not twen
ty in tho service." The Middlesex is of
1101 tons register, and in looking of er a
liht of thirty ships on the way from New
York to San Erancisco in June, we find
only three are less than 1,000 tons, and
twenty-one are of greater tonnage than this
monbter 13. has discovered up the creek,
while two of them are over 2,500 tons reg
Again, 13. is further informed by an old
salt "that it is. much to the benefit of &

all the salt sea animals and vegetation that

ON'E OF THE COMMITTEE. '
A decision of special interest to the
Pacfk: Coast has been made by Gen
eral Drummond, Commissioner of the
Land Office, who has declared that
lands valuable on account of chemi
cal properties may be patented un
der the Mining act of last year, in
the same way as other valuable min
eral deposits. The decision of course
docs not refer to lands specially re
served by act of Congress.
The Mexican Government has re
ceived dispatches confirming the re
port that the famous Lozada had
been taken prisoner by the National
troops, and that the Tepic revolution
is about at an end. The Government
is arranging to send 6,000 troops to
reinforce the army on the Rio
Grande. Minister Mejzia declares
that he will not support the Govern
ment in its dictatorial powers, and he
is charged with holding revolution
ary caucuses at the house of a son-in-law
of the late President Juarez.
"We. are glad to hear that Capt. Corno
has .successfully launched the Mila Bend,
and is nearly ready for business again.
She will he placed in the Portland and
Tillamook trade soon.
"WnEftEAS, Under the Act of the Legis
lative assembly of the State of Oregon,
entitled"4' an Act to protect litigants," ap
proved October 24th, 1870. The Tki
"Weekly Astorian, a newspaper pub
lished at Astoria Clatsop County Oregon,
has been designated to publish the legal
and judicial advertisements for tho county
of ClaUop ia the State of Oregon.
"Whekeas, The proprietor of said Tri-
."Weeku: Astorian has filed with the
County. Clerk of said county of Clatsop
written stipulations accepting the condi
tions of said Act, together with a bond
approved as the law directs, with a proper
return and notice thereof to this office, ac
cording to law.
Now, therefore, the said Tri-"Weekly
Astorian is, hereby proclaimed to be ap
pointed and confirmed as the medium
through which all legal and judicial ad
vertisements for the County of Clatsop in
the State of Oregon shall be published
for the period authorized by law.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set
.my hand and caused the seal of the State of
Oregon to be affixed, at tho Executive
office in the city of Salem this twenty
fourth day of July A. T. 1873.

To Investors. Tho Korthern Pacific
Railroad Company has now built, equipped
and put in operation, nearly oil inilds of its
main lino of road through an oxcollont coun
try and along what is known as tho Valley
Route to tho Pacific Tho finished portions
already enjoy a largo and last increasing
traffic. The sections approaching completion
connect tho chain of Lakes with tho navigation
of tho Upper Missouri and Columbia rivers
with Puget Sound, secure at onco a largo and
profitable business and entitle tho Company
to about 10,400,000 acres of excellent avorago
land in foe simple.
With theso accomplished results, tho Com
pany offers, and ia now rapidly selling, its
inrst Morgago Ronds, for completing tho
construction and oquipmont of its road across
tho Continent. After careful investigation,
wo recommend theso bonds as a well secured
and unusually profitablo Investment. They
havooO years to run; principal and interest
aro payable in gold; the interest (seven and
throe-tenths percent) is oqual now to about
84 por cent in curroncy. Tho coupon and
registered bonds can bo exchanged ior each,
othor, at tho pleasure of tho holder. Gold
checks for tho semi-annual interest on tho
registered bonds aro mailed to tho post office
address of tho owner.
Theso securities havo tho following elements
of strength and safety: They aro tho obliga
tion of a strong corporation; they aro also a
mortgago on tho Road, its right of way, equip
ments and franchises, and a hrst lean on its
net earnings. In addition to this usually suf
ficient security, tkero is pledged for tho pay
ment of tho principal and interest a Grant of
Land, averaging about 23,000 Acros por Mile
for the entire length of tho Road. At tho
average price per acrb at which other Land
Grants havo thus far been rold, this real estate
security will yield moro than $101,000 per
inilo morodianthreo times tho possible is
suo of bonds.
Tho Company has already begun the pro
cess of redeeming and cancelling its first mort
gage bonds, as thoy aro now being received,
at 1.10 in payment &nd exchange for tho Conir
