AMERICA OX THE SEA.
Is sailing craft alone, says
Gatli, the United States has always
been without a rival. Anybody
who wants to take up Cooper's
naval history and read it as closely
as Cooper wrote it for he was a
precise man, versed in the sea
will find that almost from the mo
ment of the appearance of these
colonies on the sea they had a skill
and shrewdness of their own. In
the first place they did a more ex
tensive commerce when they were
colonies than almost any other na
tion on the globe did with other
parts of the world. The Dutch,
Quaker and New England vessels
from the Delaware and the Hud
son, from Long Island sound and
Massachusetts bay, had a splendid
stimulus in the proximity of the
Spanish AVcst Indies and of the
auxiliary islands which belonged
to other nations. In the second
war with England, the capture of
regular British frigates caused
such excitement that later on a
deliberate attempt was made to
burn every ship-yard in the United
States. By 1SG0 the American
merchant navy was the largest in
the world. The comparative re
tirement of the Americans from
the seas was not consequent, as is
generally supposed, upon our in
feriority to handle the seas. The
causes of that withdrawal had been
somewhat in operation a good
while before the civil war and the
defeat of secession and provincial
ism and the opening of the entire
interior of the country to free la
bor and immigration, and the
building of the government rail
way to the Pacific, gave us at
home the end cf all maritime ad
venture, namely, colonies and
trading stations. Our ocean be
came the great west rolling on to
the Pacific. We extended our
voyages to Canada and Mexico.
More colonization has been done
in the United States since the
close of the rebellion than all the
rest of the world has done every
where. Nevertheless in our coast
wise commerce lies a great and
sufficient nursery of the maritime
art. As to maritime building ive
are doing plenty of it. The mere
ferry boat system of this country
is remarkable; and at the begin
ning of the civil war nearly all the
fen boats needed were put to
war purposes. The ferry boat
fleet of New York alone is very
remarkable in tonnage, in the
number of vessels, in the employed
hands, and in the high engine
power. "We are also able, to keep
afloat a respectable ocean navy.
American steamers run to the
"West Indies, to Brazil, to Mexico;
and we still have some to Europe
and Asia. It is very close busi
ness to make any money out of
ocean steam .shipping, :tnd two or
three per cent a year will not sit
isfy the average American corpor
ation. Ji net: Hoitma.v, of Sau Fran
cisco, has decided th.jt in th fu
ture if Chinese appKcnnts to land
fail to prove that then certificates
are genuine, the United S'.ttes dis
trict attorney can be given posses
sion of such documents as evi
dence of fraud, and institute -proceedings
to prosecute the holders.
It is believed that this decision
will stop the efforts of Chinese to
land without proper certificates.
Harper's Weekly, the mug
wump Bible, announces that the
election of Hill in New York is
"a Democratic defeat." These
mugwumps are too fine haired for
anything. "When a man is beaten
he is beaten. The mugwumps
were beaten in New York and
everybody, Republicans and Dem
ocrats, are glad of it.
Dakota men profess to know
that it is the intention of the pres
ident to recommend the admission
of Dakota as a state, but that he
is inclined to think that the terri
tory is large enough for two
The commissioner of the gen
eral land office has refused to ap
prove a list of lands selected by
the Northern Pacific railroad com
pany, including about 5S,000 acres
in "Washington territory embraced
within the forfeited grant of the
Oregon Central railroad company.
The Northern Pacific railroad com
pany's line from Portland to Ta
coma traverses a portion of the
forfeited grant, and that company
claimed the tract on the ground
that it had not been withdrawn for
the benefit of the Oregon Central
railroad. The commissioner in
his decision holds that it is imma
terial whether or not the lands
were withdrawn for the Oregon
Central, for as the tract had been
granted in the first place to the
Oregon Central, they could not
have been included in the grant to
the Northern Pacific, even if any
grants of lands had been extended
by the joint resolution of May 31,
1870, upon which the Northern
Pacific bases its claim.
Pkeswent Ci.kvei.axm issued
a timely and sensible proclamation
last Saturday warning all engaged
in turbulent or unlawful conduct
in Seattle, or elsewhere in "Wash
ington territory, to disperse and
retire to their homes. Three hun
dred and forty-five I. S. troops
went from Vancouver to Seattle,
the same day, seventy-five stop
ping off at Vancouver.
Tin: Vancouver TJ. S. grand ju
ry has found indictments against
several participants in the "polite
removal" of the Chinese fiom Ta
coma. Such little legal formalities
as being tried and convicted of
having broken the laws may con
stitute the unpleasant aftermath to
a day's sport.
The mayor of Tacoma who
heads the gang that runs that city
must be a determined enemy of
the movement to make "Washing
ton a state. He has done his little
best or worst to keep Washington
a territory for at least two years
Reports from Virginia say that
Mahone is in the depths of gloom,
lie is socially and politically
ruined, and has serious thoughts
of leaving Virginia. The feeling
against him in the state is so great
that he will be socially ostracised.
