tBsF everybody in Seattle were as liberal in proportion as two young Americana
who came into the Post-Intelligencer business office yesterday, the Christmas
' fund for the poor would grow more rapidly. They were small, and their
cash resources were limited, but they gave generously of such as they had. Their
chief contribution was a sack containing 300 marbles, which had evidently been
saved up with great care. In addition to this they handed over sundry toys, books
and slates, enough to stock an ordinary play-room. The boys did not give their
names, and left the office as quietly as they had entered it.
Another juvenile benefactor during the day was Thomas Mills Hutchinson,
whose donation consisted of two books and 50 cents in cash.
The grown people are not coming forward as rapidly as they might. The most
notable contribution yesterday was from Mrs. Sherwood Giilespy, who sent in fif
teen bags of candy. From the Puget Sound naval station, Bremerton, James
Deaver sent sl, M. Dunbar 25 cents and T. Watkins 25 cents. The cash donations
now amount $213.81.
There is every probability that the present week will bring a far larger list of
contributions. As Christmas day draws nearer the Post-Intelligencer's plan of a
fund to supply the poorer children of the city with some useful or suitable present
will commend itself more and more.

ASTORIA, L>ec. 17—The United
i revenue cutter Commodore Perry started
from Astoria this morning fur Portland to

While pausing St. Helena she ran onto
tiie Warrior rock at an unusually high tide,
and She is now im; alej upon it. Two ri\er
steamers tried to pull her oft and not only
broke their hawsers in the attempt, but
made the cutter more tight on the rock
i t!;un she was before. Capt. Ki.gore real
iz a that the position is dangerous for
the vessel, but there ia no danger of a
t loss of life. As nea; its can b-> ascertained

The Austrian steamer Burma left Port

Cape Do Verde islands for orders. She
was drawing twenty-one feet >ix inches.
At Gobie directly off the cold storage p..uit
she ran aground and i« now in I*-** than

it is possible to get her to sixteen feet,

The llurma floated off without injury at

WASHINGTON, Dec. I?.—The president
will submit the peace treaty to the senate
during the present session; that much has
been definitely determined. Tha text is
still lacking here, and as the commission
ers havs not thought spropejr to Intrust
the document to the mall.", it will not
reach Washington before next Saturday.
Although desirous of placing it before the
senate at the earliest possible opportunity
the president will not be able to do so
until a week after Its receipt, for the rea
son that congress will then bo in holiday
mess. Meanwhile the treaty will not be
given to the public.
Strong pressure has been brought to bear
already to change this decision, but a strict
observance of the established custom In
such cases will be followed, in order to
avoid exciting useless animosity against
the treaty on the part of the sticklers for
the observance of the courtesy due the
