N. W. Enterprise: Believing that a brief account of a trip among the islands in this vicinity recently made by a party of tourists in which your corres pondent was included, I will here give your readers the benefit of my observa tions. One can but halt appreciate the beau ties of this glorious sc( tiou nr enj iy the sublime grandeur of its rugged scenery in passing by on a steamboat. To fully realize it all, the trip should be made in a small boat; and so we made it. After visiting the well cultivated farms of Messrs. Lathrow, Gray, Allard and others, near Anacortes, we crossed Fidal go Bay to the residence of Mr. Robert Becker, where our party was most hos pitably entertained by Mr. B. and his excellent lady. From here wo made a tour of Gueraet. Island, passing entirely around the island, and culling on Messrs. O'Bryant, Wood cock, Payne, Wehrli, Lewis, Murrow, Johnson, Shriver, Sullivah, Kelly and Mangan, and at each place we were right royally entertained by the generous island ers. We must not omit, in passing, t<» state that, notwithstanding the dull times, the spirit of improvement is still abroad in the land, .and much good work has been done by the people on the islands iu the way ol putting up new dwellings, barns, fences, slashing, clearing, etc. — notably, Messrs, Payne, Woodcock, Jen kins, Edens, Sullivan and Kelly, whose neat and substantial cottages would be a credit to any section. On Saturday last we made a trip to Cottonwood Island, on which there are some half dozen settlers. Being some what pressed for time we visited only Messrs. Oillis and Bickford, bot£ of whom have fine ranches, or at least will have in a short time. Mr. Gilhs is en gaged in clearing land and getting out bolts for the stave mill on Orcas Island while Mr. Bicklord is temporarily en gar jd in halibut fishing. Returning to Fnlalgo Bay we stayed over night at Mr. Becker’s, an i then started overland, over one of the finest roils in Skagit county, and undeniably the b *sl road on any of the islands here abouts, to Deception Pass mill. On this road wejtiss chu* beautiful and well tilled farms of William Mucks, E. Compton, 11. C. Baikiiousett ml Judge li J. W hit*. ,iu of which, all hough am hg the first settled places on the island, wetts -tr.ko.j evidence ot wh.t man’s industry and thrift can ac.oiuplish, We must also infit hmin tin t group of fine farms the placet* of Robert B.cker, 11. A. March and James Kavanaugh. From Judge White’s place there are no setth rs on this road until we reach the neighborhood of Lake i'-. •, whore Mr. Hurd and others have o.’d. clearings. Further ou toe Christiansen brothers imve settled. Arriving at the mill of Bonn & Chris tiansen, we inspected the splendid water power owned by these gentlemen, and which furnishes the motive power lor the mill, and is also utilized in supplying u earners touching *. re. From tliis poiut mi to the Puss, Messrs. Lyi. !i, Jackson, Oinnelt, Hdpin, Place nud the Miller brothers have farms in va rious stages of cultivation. Mr. Lynch’s place, being the longest settled, is ot aoirse under a high statu of cultivation, and ub muds with fruits and dowers of great variety. In company with the Miller boys wo made the perilous passage through De ception Pass in a skiff. To auy that the trip was a thrilling one, but faintly ex presses it. The approach to the Pass from the east aide is as pleasant as rt ne could wish, and it is not until we got within a few hundred feet of this danger ous gorge that we begin to realize what is in store lor us. We did not, on this occasion, go through the pass proper, but what is known as Canoe pass, a smaller opening, about 80 feet iu width, through which ihe turbulent waters rush with a mighty roar, to be absorbed by the ever whirling eddies beyond. The voyage through this pass, we are told by exper ienced boatmen, is not n i ssnily dan gerous, providing one does not lose bis presence of mind and keeps Ida boat straight in the current. Just ut the en trance to the pass the boat encounters the tide-rips, and some exertion at the oars is necessary, nut ’tis only for a moment, Aiiiicortea "W* r i?«s h>£vt,ii.i*cltv JTuliio I however, when the frail skiff is suddenly raised high up by the mad waters and as suddenly plunges down a distance of fully three feet, to finally shoot out into the whirliug vortex beyond, where eddy alter eddy is encountered until we have passed the point of the island, and the danger is over. From this point we proceeded on our way to the residences of Dr. A, C. Bow man and Mr. Thomas Sharpe, who are pleasantly situated on the west side of the island at tho base of Mt. Ilygeia. The scenery here is indeed “grand, gloomy and peculiar.” Hero can be seen on a clear day much that will interest those who delight in tho beauties of na ture, On either hand are to be seen many islands of various sizes, clothed in univer sal garments of evergreen. From hero also may be seen Smith’s Island and Oungeness light houses, with occasionally a passing steamer or sailing vessel in the offing—the whole calculated to inspire the reflecting beholder with renewed in terest in the sublime and mysterious works ot nature as exhibited on the sea of Juan do Fuca. After a day’s rest here we returned to Anacortes on Wednesday, greatly pleased with our delightful tript Nautilus. PUGET SOUND DEFENSE The defense ot Puget Sound ot late somewhat discussed in this journal, is a matter of special interest to General Miles, who has recently caused the ap proaches from the ocean to be examined iu detail by military men and is himself looking the situation over at the present time. The criticisms of the Oregonian upon the location of Fort Townsend, now the only military station iu those waters, are fully sustained by the officers who have been looking into the matter. The fort sits iu the shelter of a deep in side curve, at a point highly favorable for safety, but out of range of ship chan nel. It is useless as a defensiye station and i o tar as protection to the Sound is concerned there might as well be no fort. It has been supposed generally that protection of Puget Sound by shore works would be impossible, but we arc told by military engineers that it can be done effectively by the establishment of four batteries, one on the height com manding Deception Pass, two at Points Wilson and Marrows'oue in the mainland, and another at Admiralty Head on W hid* by Island. Lines drawn between the last three points named form an almost exact equilateral triangle, the distances from head to head being a trifle less than l >ur miles. A vesseT entering from the Straits ot Fuca has no choice but to pass through the narrow De< eptiou Pass,w hich can be easily defended,or through the main channel, and so past and within shurt range ot Points Wilson and Marrowstone and Admiralty head, flatteries on these three headlands could operate simultan eously, and it would simply be impossible to pass if they were properly fortified and manned. From its situation, Puget Sound is particularly exposed to visitation by hos tile ships. The channels are eo deep and wide that entrance from the ocean is easy at all times. Aud furthermore, it is but two hours’ sail from a strong f >relgn naval station. It is the duty of the gov ernment to do what may be done for its defense. And we are glad to see that the department commander recognizes this. —Oregonian. Hedstbad Superstition ?k G»~nan7 —Having ordered a neatly ooiutruoted single bedstead, says a oerrespoudeat »f London Note* atnl With somewhat aigh aud ornamnDtal skit e. 1 a'u surpriaed vlicu it was brought burnt to linu Uim tn» iruumentutlou of one side of the U-dsical vras not repeated on the opposite side, it cuing in fact quite plain. 1 expressed raj surprise and dissatibfaotion to the maker saying, that when a bedstead was plated with its head against the wall of a loom, he sides then showing will appear quite unlike—one oniamcu «d, and the othc ■lain. At this, the maker expressed his surprise that 1 should be ignorant of a GCr oat i custom and prejudice ; “ for,’ gays he, •iu Germany single bedsteads are only ihaced sidewise against a wall or partition ; -id only removed from this position, and laced with its head against the wall, to eceive a dead body.” And the worthy maker a-sured me that nowhere in Ger many could a native be fndnoed to sleep on \ single bedstead which hug nev its side ilacs* against a wall or partition. Tb* ■arue obj' ction does not bold against plar og two single bedstead* side by side, wilk ui 'k heads against a wad. PACTS FOR THE OTRIOUtV At Cape Island, N. J., the sea has ? ained on the shore fully a mile sinot 776. The tides on the eastern shore of the State are observably growing higher. During the reign of Napoleon I. a book of birds for children was sup pressed because it contained the phrase : “ The cock is rather the tyrant than tho chieftain of the farm-yard.” Evp,rt shell fired by an army during siege operations costs, with the powder with wliich the mortar is charged, the sum of eight dollars—enough to support a poor family for a fortnight. The lead used in sounding from a ves sel usually weighs about fourteen pounds, but in deep-sea soundings a weight of uot less than 150 pounds is frequently employed. Wire Las been largely u 3 . d for “ft hue, as it makes less friction in sinking through the water. With hemp rope a sinker of 300 weight is sometimes twenty minutes in reaching tho bottom in 1,500 'athums of water, so great is tire friction of the line. Thk oldest monument in the world i« in the Ashuiolcau Museum at Oxford. This is the lintel stone of a tomb which formed the last resting-place of an officer who lived in the time of King Sent, of the second dynasty, whose fate is fixed by M. Marietta more than 6,000 years igo. The stone is covered with that Jel ieate and liuished sculpture which dis tinguished the early periods of Fgip'ian history, and was immeasurably superior to the stiff and conventional art of the latter ages of Egypt, which wc are accus tomed to see in European museums. Thk Japanese are r< markably exempt from deformed feet. The reason of to is* is to be found in the shoes they wear. The wooden sandals worn in Japan have a separate for the great toe, and make a clanking noise on the streets. Straw shppers are nl»u worn, and a traveler setting out ou a journey will strap u supply of them on his back, that lie may put ou a new pair when the old is worn out. They coal but a cent and a half a pair. They are rights and lefts, and leave the foot free to the air. They are never worn in the house, being left outside the door; passing down a Japanese street long rows of them are seen at the doors, olu and new, large and small. It is sur plus ug u5 see how rapidly the Japs step out of them, and pick them up again with teeir feet without stopping when i< living the house. Au tub most valuable wrnlth a o-irntry can possess in its healthy population, the tables of mortality are woitu study ; aud from tlie.su wo liuil that ou tlio first day of iiio ai veuty-eijht hoys die. to sixty-three girls. Vn the first yrzcL of I le 1(38 boys dro, to 153 girls. In Prussia toe mortality among femul-b is the greatest from 10 to 18 years of age; aud from the 25th to the 4Uth it is greater than at other periods of life, and yet at till periods of life the census of females compares favorably with that of males. In England, taking a period of seven years, there were eight men to liftoen women who were alive at 101 years; three men to five women at 102 years; two men to three women at 103 y» ars of age, and no man to out) woman who lived to 104. ft is observed that only one person in 1,000 born fives beyond i) 4 years. Fkom a comparison of the results of recent deep-sea soundings, it appears that the following are just generaliza tions : 1. The water of the South Pacific is in its whole mass cooler than I hat of the Atlantic. 2. The water of the South P citic is, down to 4,225 feet, somewhat warmer than that of the Atlantic, but heiow that depth cooler. 3. The bottom temperatures are generally lower in the Pacitio than in the Atlantic at the same depths and in the same degree of lati tiide; but nowhere in the Pacific are found such iuw bottom U mperaiuies ua in the Antarctic portion of the South Atlantic, where temperatures of —0.3 centigrade to —0.(5 degr.es have been measured. 4. In the western parts of the Pacitio and the adjoining parts of the list Im.ia arch pelago, the tem perature of the water reaches its minimum at depths between 1,787 and 8.037 feet, remaining the same from this depth to the bottom. In the whole of the Atlantic the temperature from 8,1*37 feet to the bottom gradually though sloMy increases. PITH AND FOOT. If yon had the material, would Ja maica rum punch ?
