ASTORIA. Dec. 1C, 1873
A Distinguished Gentleman from
Oregon Under this caption the San
Francisco Bulletin of the 4th has the
Some little commotion -was created
at the Occidental Hotel, last evening,
by the eccentric conduct of a conse
quential guest, who arrived by the
last steamer from Oregon, who reg
istered as J. Mortimer Jturphy, and
pretended to be a representative of
the Portland Bulletin. The ostenta
tious gentleman, after establishing
his title to distinguished considera
tion in the usual manner of the class
to which he belongs, started out on a
carouse, and returning at a late hour
on Tuesday night, endeavored to
swindle the hotel clerk out of a do
nation, on the pretense that he had
a large sum deposited in the safe.
The game did not work, notwith
standing the deep indignation of this
high-toned fellow at the request of a
loan, and when the attempted swin
dle was reported at headquarters a
watch was kept on the movements of
T. Mortimer Murphy. The elegant
Oregonian was on the point of sneak
ing out of the private entrance of
the hotel last evening, with his bag
gage under his arm, when he was
intercepted by the clerk and a bill of
$o thrust under his nose. J. Morti
mer Murphy would have wafted the
sordid money taker to one side in
his offended dignity, but just then
the manager of the hotel appeared
upon the scene to enforce the de
inand. Murphy proposed lighting
his way through, and made a motion
to strike the manager, when the lat
ter drew a pistol and fired at him,
but without effect. Murphy then
drew ofi and an excited crowd drew
in about the hotel, to inquire the
cause of the disturbance- While
the discussion of the affair was pro
ceeding, the Oregonian returned, se
cured liis baggage by paying the
coveted bill, and then drew out a
navy revolver and inquired earnestly
for the man who shot at him, but
nothing further happened. Sir.
Murphy applied for a warrant to-day,
and more of the trouble will prob
ably be heard in the Police Court.
An exchange says that "the
whole country is filled with burning
indignation at the fiendish barbari

plain the cold snap in this part of
the whole country which is not filled
with any u burning" indignation,
hence leaves the gate open for all the
surplus cold to come in from other
parts where this " burning" indigna
tion makes it too tropical for ice
blockades- It must be serene also,
on the Spanish question, along the
A recent English writer says that
drunkenness is an affair of climate.
The people of all damp and cold
