asking too much when they expect met

Currency on this Coast is governed by
the daily markets of Gold in New York;
it. is not. our circulating medium. Our
merchants buy their goods on a gold ba

Editor Dispatch : —VViII you be kind
enough to inform me why the Post M as
ha: of Seattle will not look in the box
for letters when calied upon to do so ?
I called to-day for some letters that came
down from Olympia on Thursday mom
ing, but without taking the trouble to
see, he informed me ” nothing." Now
according to the many complaints I hear
from other parties, this must be a com
mon occurrence with the P. M.. and
this is the third time it has happened to
me, when I knew that there were letters
in the oflice for me. If he would trust
lent to his memory, and more to eye
sight, he might sue further cause fer
complaint. JAS- Bow.
THE Mamunnns.—Brown and Ship
my, the despemdoes who for the last
month evaded the vigilance of the police
and spread ten-0r over the country, are
yet in this neighborhood. One of them
entered Port Blakeley a few days since
and carried away his cloochmnn; on
Tuesday one was seen at Freeport, and
on Wednesday morning they were both
seen in this city at an early hour. The
audacity of the scamps is wonderful.
Sums, August 20, 1871.
Editor Dispatch :—lc seems that our
astute and august City Council. after
carefully compounding a. medicine with
which to cleanse Seattle from the efiects
of, and prevent the further spread
among us, of all contagious or infectious
disease. are themselves making wry
faces, and refusing to swallow a dose of it.
It is no use gentlemen, you may strug
gle its much its you please, the public
are holding it to your lips, and it will
kn. you politically if you don't swallow
it, and it will just as surely kill you if
you do. In other words, you have en
acted a Health Ordinance compelling
the people of Seattle, under the heavy
penalty of one hundred dollurs to misc
8 yellow flag on any building where a
case of contagious or infectious disease
exists wllnd then when the citizens peti
tzon you to carry out the provisions of
the said Oldinancc by placing a yellow
flag on the house of John W. Pitmell,
(that brothel of pollution) you in order
to escape from it task your fear or inter
est deters you from undertaking shrink
the responsibility h'y deciding that in
your opinion, John W. Pinuell‘s premises
do not come within the provisions of
City Ordinance No. 30. (a. decision in
which the the puplic, happily do not
concur.) Let us look at some of the
provisions of this Ordinance. It says
expressly, " Any contagious or infec
tions disease." It does not define
nor specify what the disease shall be,
so that it is contagious or infections. It
may be mumps, measles, itch, chicken
pox, whooping cough, syphilis, small—
pox. sent-let fever, typhus tever, or any
other contagious or infectious disease.
Thut they all come within the provisions
of City Ordinance No. 30, no sane per- 1
son will deny. But, say these gi'nve 1
and learned Councilmen—this is n. snmll— i
pox Ordinance 1 Then why in the name
of common sense does it not say smull
pox. No, no, gentlemen that Will never
do. The people would never infer from
reading the Ordinance that the Count-i 1 ,
had ever heard of small-pox, much less ,
that the Ordinance was made in i'el'er- ‘
ence to it. Just look at it ! Here is an
Ordinance of nine sections, said by our
learned City Council. to be a :matll-pox 3
Ordinance, but in which the word small- ‘
pux does not once occur. While the
words “coutuglous or infectious dis-
ease,” occurs no less than six times.—
Blit then our City Council is composed
of very wise and very learned men, and
it Would be doing them gieut injustice
to suppose for one moment, that their
“ Otliuilucc uiuehinci‘y " might huvcgot
out of 'rder by being too freely oiled
with lager. and so have ground out “any
contagious or infectious disease,“ when
they meant small-pox. Oh, no !we will
rather believe they meant just what the
Ordinance says, and that they only got
frightened because they weie petitioned
to begin the process of purification by
cleaning out John W. l’innell's estab
lishment. Then again, sec. 4 makes it
the duty of the Mayor or Health Ullicei‘
to restrain from going upon the street or
from house to house, or in any public
place whatever, any person who has
any such contagious or infectious dis
ease, which section the petitioners urged
them to carry into efl'ect but which they
have neglected to (lo—not even ginng u
reason for neglecting their duty, no, not
even as shallow a one as in the case of
John l’iniiell. " Why." said one “ho
seemed to be. pasted. to whom was pre
sented the petition for signature, " it'
that provision was carried out it would
brenk up more than half the families of
Seattle." I replied. then God help
Scuttle. if that is the case, then't‘nc
sooner this Urdinuuce is ent' )l‘Ct'd the
belter. Said another. “ John l’inueil
keeps Uloochmen. mid respectable men
don't go there as much as they used to,
for now they hhve got another establish
ment of the some kind right here in
their midst, where there are white wom
en.”" Think of that wives and mothers.
“ Respectuble men don't visit Pinnell‘s
as often as formerly.” They hziVe ill]-
other place of resort of like character
more conveniently situated. Respect
able men ! comment is unnecessary.—
Bnt we would not for a moment enter~
tuin the srspicion thnt any of our City
Council might passibly belong to the
class of respectable men hind for that
reason are afraid of too close uu investi
gation, and so gave that part of the pe
tition the go by.
No indeed ! We will rather suppose
that theimportnnce of saving the premi
ses of John \V. Pinnell from the cleaner
ing they so much need, in order to stop
the spreud of so mm b infection, so oc
cupied their astute minds. that they en
tirely forgot everything else. M.
QUITE A Du‘nnxscn.—We mentioned
ately that a ton of freight transported
from San Francisw to Kahuna. cos} the
sum ot $11.25. including the charges
by way of Portland. We see by u no
tice of the item in the Olympia Tribune,
that to Puget Sound from San Francis
co freight 'is only 34,40 per ton by
steamer, and we believe that $3 is the
rate by sailing vessels. When the rail
road is completed to the Sound, the ex
cessive Columbia river chwrges must be
greatly reduced. or the line of trnnsit
for Columbia Basin trade will turn in
that direction as railway is the cheap
est seaboard connection.—-Kalqma Bea

MEMPHIS, August 17—Early this

river some ten miles above here, appur
eutly übuuilnued. Rowing out to her
he made a line fast to his skiff and
started for land; before landing, how
ever. he disco.ered a negro sitting us
leep on the lower deck. with a. shot gun
in his lap. When the bout. struck the
bank. the negro started up, jumped
ashore and run into the woods. The
fisherman, on boarding the bout, found
