Business was extremely lively along the wharves from four until eight o'clock this morning. Nine departures. The City Treasurer, uncle David Ingalls, is ready to tender the free dom of the city to dogs on payment of the taxes levied. The schooner Kate L.

James Moore caught a sturgeon in his net last Tuesday night, while drifting for salmon at Oregon City. It measured over eight feet in length. The sturgeon had no business up there anyway. Ladies &t Canyon City take their umbrellas with, them when they call upon their beaux saying that is "the latest Portland style." Astoria sur renders to Portland in nothing. That's the Astoria stvle also. The new steamship Geo. W. El der, for the Oregon trade, left New York on the 10th. She has a quan tity of Telegraph material for the "Western Union Company and 1,070 casks Cumberland coal. We don't believe it is true that the Portland Board of Trade has seven men constantly employed drafting memorials, petitions and "sich like" tomfooleries. Nor that four boys carry the petitions around for signa tures. Political "enthusiasm" at Astoria this week double-discounts the patri otic efforts of any centennial celebra tors in the land.

The Salem Statesman of the 25th says that a neat little craft named The Pilot, arrived at Salem on the 24th in charge of the Stevens Bros., who con--template taking her to Yaquina bay via Astoria. It was built by them at Corvallis, and is destined for the Ya quina trade. She is 21 feet long and 7 feet wide, easily managed and a swift sailer. The trip appears ven "turesome, but we have no doubt the Irip will be made in perfect safety, as -the crew fully understand their bugi iiess and realize the magnitude of tkeir nmdertakmg. . ASTORIA.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE: People's Independent Party, Per J. H.D. Gray. IIow Advertising Affects Busi nes. Tiie man who advertises his biibi ness, if what he offers for sale is honestly what he represents it to be or what it ought to be, is constantly assisted in his business by those who "have been attracted to hirn and tested him. A buyer has read his advertisement, and gone to his store or work shop, warehouse, whatever it may be, and tried what was recommended. If it has satisfied him he is pleased and re commends, it to his neighbor, who is likely to go to the same place and tell his neigh bor in turn. And thus little rills started hy his advertisement flow in upon him from all side., and the current ot his busi ness grows stronger and wider and more rapid, and he prospers and grows rich, all because "strict attention in business he added judicious advertising, llut for this he might have lingered on in the commu nity lor years and his business would scarcely nave been heard of.
