Suggested by the Wreck.
The inventive genius of Mr. Ford,
a resident of Albina, has evolved a
plan by which he claims the removal
of grounded vessels would 'be a com
paratively cheap and easy uiatter in
streams where a current exists. The
Bee says his modesty alone deters him
from putting his patent idea into prac
tical shape, and he allows us to pub-gj
lish the same for the benefit of any
who may wish to take advantage of it.
Where a vessel is grounded on sand
the method proposed is by hydraulic
pressure; to use the machinery of the
vessel for this purpose, with nozzles
long enough to reach the sand, shaped
to the hull of the vessel; when it is
claimed that the action of the current
will carry off the sand as it is removed
hy the hydraulic pressure. In the
event of the vessel being grounded on
clay, it is proposed to use steam in
stead of water. The apparatus could
be conviently kept on tugs for pur
poses of relief. Mr. Ford has made
experiments on a small scale and found
the plan to work like a charm, while
prominent nautical men to whom the
idea has been propounded have ex
pressed themselves very favorably
The first settlements of this
territory were made in 182S by the
Hudson bay company. The first
American settlers came in 184:5,
since then, there has been a slow
but steady increase of population.
Owing to the remoteness of this
from the thickly populated portions
of our country, the tide of immi
gration has, as yet, barely reached
us. Out of the many long trains
of migrating people wJq have
..crossed. the plains, and the peopled
snips nhiiTSoTlliHiither by way of
Cape Horn, but few adventurous
. seekers for homes have reached
the north-western coast. The
population of this territory now
figures up to something near to
The native tribes of Indians
which are scattered about the coun
try are but the remnants of a dying
power and pride. They are
gradually losing their tribal dis
tinctions, and soon the single word
Indian will describe their birth,
parentage, history and fate.
The tide of immigration that is
flowinjr into our territory is large
beyond precedent. "While the
Puget sound basin is having its
population gradually increased,
eastern Washington is being set-
. tied with remarkable rapidity.
New homes, new farms, new faces
and new industries are the order
of the day in this new country.
Time, exppsiencc and perseverance
have proven that the almost limit
less prairies of rich, arable lands
in this new country are unrivalled
on the Pacific slope. Its climate
Jb very healthy, and its winters
are generally mild, with warm
summers, and delightful spring
and fall weather. Without hesi
tancy, without fear of misleading
our readers, we would say to the
homeless and honest laborer, come
to the land of promise, and claim
your inheritance a home in aland
of plenty; a residence among a

The New Law.
Following is the new land law
passed by congress and approved by
President Hayes on the 3d of March : j
That before the final proof shall be sub-!
miueu uy any person claiming to enter
agricultural lands under the law pro
viding for pre-emption or homestead en
tries, such person shall file with the
proper land-office a notice of his or her
intention to make such proof, stating
therein the description of hinds to be en
tered, and the names of the witnesses
by whom the necessary facts shall be
Upon the filing of such notice, the
register hall publish a notice, that such
application has been made once a week
for the period of thirty days, in a news
paper to he by him designated as pub
lished nearest to such lands, and he shall
post such notice in some conspicuous
place in his office for the same period.
Such notice shall contain the names of
the witnesses as stated in the applica
tion. At the expiration of said period of
thirty days, the claimant shall be en
titled to make prool heretofore prescrib
ed by law. The secretary of the interior
shall make nil necessary rule for giv
ing effect to the foregoing provisions.
When I gaze into the stars said
Carlyle they look down with pity
from their serene and silent space,
like eyes glistening'with tears over the
little lot of man. Thousands of gen
erations all ;is noisy as our own, have
been swallowed up by time, and there
remains no record of them any more.
Yet Arcturus and Orion, Sirius and
Pleiades, are still shining in their
bright courses, clear and young as
when the shepherd first noted them in
the plain of Shinar.
An impromptu mock auction sale
of women was amusing and profitable
at first in a .Racine, Wisconsin, church
fair. The young men bid liberally
for the attractive girls, and it was all
very funnj indeed until an ugly but
influential sister was put up. The
autioiieer was compelled to knock her
down at 25 cents, and she was so
angry that she put on her things and
