trial has been made in England
tf'vrhat is called an "unsuitable
boat." It is made of boiler plate,
shaped something like a flask, air
1 icing supplied through tubes. The
boat upon -which the tiiul "was
made is capable of liolding sixteen
i)eo)le, and is fited up "with lockers,
seats and table. The experimental
trial is savl to have been successful.
Among those who are improving
Saratoga and its environs is Frank
Leslie, the publisher, lie has" pur
chased a tract of land at Saratoga
Lake, near Aloon's Lake house, and
lias laid out a beautiful park, built a
magnificent stable, and will soon be
gin an elegant villa, supassing in ar
chitectural beauty anything in the
.State. The "whole expense necessary
to complete the enterprise is estima
ted at 500,000.
The Board of Capital Commissioners
at Salem is composed of lovel-lieaded men.
lion. Sam Allen, of Marion county ;
Hon. John E. Miller, of Salem ; and
Henry Ivlippel, of Jackson1 county. Mr.
Allen i: a native of Tennessee, born in
1S05, and is conbequently of ripe age. lie
emigrated to this State in 1S45. lion. John
P. Miller is a native of Hardin county,
Kentucky, horn in 1824, and came to
Oregon twenty-two year. ago. Like Mr.
Allen, he has been identified with Oregon
interests for many years, and is considered
one of the hast men in the State. Mr.
Klippel was horn on the Rhine, in 1S33,
and has .been in the United States nearly
twenty-three years. The building being
erected under their control will be credit
able to the Commonwealth. Columbus

It is evident that the Cuban pa
triots are making the best of the op
portunities afforded them by the Car
list insurrection in Spain to advance
their lines against the weakened gar
lisonsofthe home Government on
the island. They now have posses
sion of nearly one half the island,
have government which is self-sustaining,
and only require a seaport
to entitle them to a recognition of
belligerent rights. This thev are
certain to acquire in time, as the re
ward of un equaled perseverance. The
moral sentiment of the American
people would hail such a result with
delight, and our people would be
benefitted beyond measure by such
a solution of this prolonged insurrec
tion. The death is announced of Freder
ick "Winterhalter, the celehrated his
trionic painter. He was horn in
aden in 1SQ6, and visited England
in S42, soon obtaining the patronage
of the Royal family. As early aslS4S
lie achieved a distinction which most
artists might well envy. His portrait
ijroupofthe Queen, the late Prince
Consort and tho royal children, was
exhibited by command of the Crown,
and was afterwards spread before the
eves of millions in steel engravings.
The Queen gave "Winterhalter many
orders. He painted "Wellington and
Peel in 1S50, various portraits of
Queen Victoria, besides other
wurks representing the royal family.
The famous Hoosac and Itfount
Cenisj tunnels soldered together would
be no more than three-quarters the
length of a mountain tunnel for rail
road purposes recently begun, in Co
lorado Territory, through the Rocky
mountains. It starts from Black
hawk on the east, will terminate in
Middle Park, will be nearly fifteen
miles long, and will afford a passage
for the Kansas Pacific Railroad, of
which the present western terminus is
Denver. This route will be the shortest
from New York to San Francisco. The
construction of this tunnel will save
very extensive and costly grading
which would otherwise be necessary.
It is known that several veins of
1 r jcious metal run through the moun
tains, and it is believed by mining
these and marketing the ore tho
whole expense of the enterprise will
bo paid. :"" ... ; '

The famous Dr. Rice of.South-Amcrica-
notoriety, who has managed to accumu
late a fortune off the credulity of the pub
lic, and bilge water oil, has been inter
viewed at the terminus by "a newspaper re
porter. The Doctor was mistaken for the
Judge Rice, and the conversation is made
more interesting on account of the incident
happening that way. Dr. Rice advises
his friends to touch it light, about Tacoma.
The report is as follows :
I tried to find where the depot was to be,
and. had been wandering about hopelessly
until I was ready to give up in despair
when I saw advancing toward mo from
among the stumps andunderbriish a well
dressed man whose prominent points were
a plug hat and a veiy large meershaum
pipe. The latter he carried in his hand as
if it were a speaking trumpet. As he drew
near he accosted me courteeusly:
"Terminus hunting, I suppose," he
" Yes sir, and without the most flatter
ing succsss," I replied.
" A stranger in these parts?" continued
" Yes sir, I have tho misfortune to be a
stranger," said I.
" "Well, I am glad to have found you,"
said he, cordially extending his hand.
"My name is Rice, and I can tell you
every thing you would like to know about
This was an attention I had not hoped
for. To be shown around by the "Vice
President and resident manager of the,
great Northern Pacific Railroad Co. was
an honor as flattering as it was unexpect
ed, and I lost no time in assuming that
air of obsequiousness generally considered
proper upon such occasions.
" My name is ALr. Traveler," said 1 re
information vou may condescend to let
fall concerning this future centre of ex
change between the two hemispheres."
"les sir," he replied with peculiar em
phasis, "you are correct in regarding this
as the future centre of exchange between
the East and Wot, but I would advise
you to touch it light at present. I tell my
friends not to go in too heavy at iirat.
Ileal estate is held too high here!"
I was astonished at this, frankness, and
determined to find out whether it sprang
from real disinterested kindness, or was
a mere ruse to prevent others from buying
what the land ring wanted to hog for them
selves and so la&ked him if he did not
consider real estate in Tacoma a good in
vestment. "Yes, sir," he replied, "I consider it a
good iave&tment whilst it lasts, but having
information from official sources, I tell my
friends to touch it light. Do 3Tou ''see that
building there?" 1 assured "him that I
saw it distinctly. ""Well," he continued,
" that is Steel's Hotel, which my friend
was about to purchase in Portland for
50,000, but I telegraphed to touch it light,
and he only gave $10,000 for it. when
the road goes on down the Sound it will
scarcely be worth that sum?"
Here was what seemed to me a very
stran ere admission, and I modestly ven
tured to remark to the iudse, that I
thought it would be very damaging to the
company, if it should get out, that Tacoma
was not to be the permanent terminus.
" The company be d d," said he,
" what do I care whether it is damaged
or not, I advise my friends to touch it
" Hut, Judge," I observed, "do you not
wish to see these lots sold to the best ad
vantage?" "No," he replied with emphasis, "not
to ray friends; if they wish to invest, I have
some lots on the hill, three miles from
here, which I know from official sources to
be the true spot, that I will sell to them
for 60 each, on conditionthat they will
improve them, but I will not sell them to
I was delighted to receive this evidence
that the representations, which made Ta
coma the mere scheme of a land ring, were
after all but the spiteful misrepresentations
of her unsuccessful rivals, and in my en
thusiam I proposed at once to the Judge
that he should silence these slanders for
ever, and regain the confidence of our peo
ple in the company by going to Portland
and saying the same things there.
" To Portland?" he exclaimed in aston
ishment, " go to jroruapa x"
" Yes, sir; why not ?" I asked.
""Why not," said he, "because they
would haug me at sight."
"Hang the Vice President and Resident
Manager of the great Northern Pacific
Rail Road ?" I exclaimed in still greater
surprise ; "and for what ?"
"Hang the vice devil !" Eaid he ; "what
do you take me for ?"
"Then are you not Yice President
Rice?" I asked,
"No, sirr I am Doctor Rice, of Tum
water," said he.
"Ah !" I exclaimed, mortified to think
of my former obsequiousness.
"Yes, sir," he continued, not in the least
discomfited; I am that great Dr. Rice
who neddled bilge-water and molasses in
California for abolition oil, and then did
the people of Portland to the tune of $27,
000 in terminus lots, fronting on Relling
ham Bay, none of which were within six
miles of the water. Rut I never deceived
a friend. I defy the world to produce a
Turn water or Olympia man to whom I
ever sold a bottle of oil or a Uellingham
Ray lot; and I dare not do it now if I
could, for these are the only places I have
to go to."
Greatly to my jrelief the boat blew her
whistle, and I left the doctor, without
waiting for him to finish his speech, which
had lot much of its interest since I dis
covered my mistake.
The crowd having made its way on
hoard, the plank was hauled in, the lines
were let go, and wo went merrily plowing
our way through the placid waters, headed
moving my hat and bending nryself to a
right angle, " and I shall be profoundly
grateful, Judge Rice,- for any crumbs of
