ASTORIA, OREGON:, '
It. C. HtEI-AXD Editor.
TUESDAY. Oct. 21, 1S73
Proposals are about to be invited
for carrying the mail between Asto
ria and Portland, beginning with Ju
ly 1st 1874.
It is however put on the old sche
dule of tri-weekly. We had hoped
that v;lten the new contract should
be let it would he for a daily mail,
and we cannot now see why this
part of the State should be so little
observed by those whose duty it is to
see that the State is provided with
all things necessary for her prosper
ity. The lower Columbia is fast settling
up 'Capital is being brought in and
a large trade arising, requiring daily
communication -with the business
centres and the telegraph. Ships ar
rive consigned to houses in Portland
but desire to see their agents perhaps
before going interior. Vessels going
out come down to Astoria to complete
cargo and after loaded the master re
turns to Portland, to settle up ac
counts. 'With a tri-weekly commu
nication to Portland one day at least
and may be two days are lost. Delays
to shipping are of great injury to the
country, not only is there an extra
expense incurred but ship owners
are discouraged, and tlie effect is to
retard our shipping interests. As
there is a daily mail from Portland
to Kalama, half way, it would not be
a very great additional expense to
extend a daily line to Astoria.
The mail was carried daily through
the past Summer, but was at the op
tion of the mail carrier and ceased
when other business changed.
AVe hope postal' agent Underwood
will take this matter in hand and
have it corrected. There is a daily
mail through to the sea board of
"Washington Territory, and it is a
shame that Orcron should be with
out such communication to her en
trance from the sea. No wonder

From the Snn Prancisco Commercial Herald
. "After a storm comes a calm,"
and the present condition of Wall
street goes to show that this adage is
as applicable to finances as to any
thing else. The panic served' to il
lustrate several points that are worthy
of note. Secretary .Richardson has
long laid under the imputation of
claiming the right to issue the S44,-
000,000 of reserves held by the gov
ernment. It has also been alleged
that he would exercise that right
should occasion present itself. The
opportunity came and went, but Mr.
.Richardson positively refused to is
sue any portion of the reserves, offer
ing as a reason, that in his opinion,
such an act would be in contraven
tion of law. This seems to settle the
question so far as the Secretary is
concerned. It is trueT that in a, book
published by him in 1872, he did ar
gue that the Treasury Department
was authorized to increase the vol
ume of greenbacks to $400,000,000,
and that the present circulation be
ing only 356,000,000, it was optional
with the Secretary to issue the re
maining 44,000,000 whenever he
should deem it advisable; but his em
phatic refusal to make that issue, at
a poriod of great and general finan
cial distress, leads to the conviction
that his views have undergone a rad
ical change. It is also clear that
President Grant considers there is
no warrant for the issuance of the
reserves, unless for war purposes, or
"for the payment of the army and
navy and other creditors of the gov
ernment, as prescribed by the law of
March 3, 1S63. When Yanderbilt so
generously offered to loan 10,000,
000, if the government would place
40,000,000 into the hands of private
individuals; he was simply pleading
for Yanderbilt. A glut of paper mon
ey is just what he wants. It would
'lead to all sorts of stock gamblings,
speculations, and "wild cat" oper
ations which he knows so well how
to manage. If Yanderbilt really de
sired to do the amiable, he could
have loaned Jay, Cooke Co. a few
millions before hand, and so have
prevented the panic. His motives
were unequivocally selfish. Eeverdy
Johnson also believed it a good op
portunity to work up a little popular
it'. While with one breath he de
clared it unlawful to issue the reser
ves, for the purpose of stopping the
panic,-with another he 'adjured the
President to violate that law, under
the sophistical plea, that the extreme
law of public safety would be suffici
ent warrant for the act. Yanderbilt
and Johnson have both shown how
completely void they are of moral
scruple, and how unsafe it would be
to trust them wjth power. The un
scrupulous selfishness of some New
York operators has been also most
prominently demonstrated by the
panic. It is stated on good authority,
that a "Wall street clique availed of
the opportunity to lock up green
backs to the extent of fifteen millions.
Those men are not overburdened
with concience. They would grow
rich upon the ruin of their fellow be
ings, and fatten on the life blood of
the -widow and the' orphan. Like
foul vultures they revel in the cai
nage of a battle field. They may
flourish for a while, but they can
not escape the doom of public scorn
and detestation which they have in
voiced. It is, however, very grati
fying to know that wo have men at
the helm of Government who can
not be cajoled or induced to commit
gross public wrongs. If the Pres
ident may use the resources of the
Treasury fpr the relief of corporate
bodies, he may, with equal justice,
employ them for the relief nf i mliviii.
.uals. Yanderbilt and Johnson Lnlrl
that a man has a right to do whatever
lie pleases, but as an Eastern contem
porary aptly remarks, the fact is,
" that no man, be he President or
private citizen, may always do what
he wants to."
