A splendid shower visited this re gion early this morning, in fact it was in continuation of the same interesting tery: " Since October 18th," and to he continued, indefinitely perhaps, un til " He shall judge among the nations, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares," etc. C&pt. Eli Hilton, who has for several months past been a sufferer from the dropsy, returned last evening from eastern Oregon not improved by the visit. He has successively tried the climate of different latitudes, from the Gulf of California to the grassy bell of eastern Oregon, without relief, and will to-morrow place himself under the care of St. Vincent Hospital, in Portland, where it is hoped by his nu merous friends, that health may be restored. Mr. M. McCormick, an experi enced brick maker from Portland, has left a sample brick at this office, made from clay alone, which practically demonstrates the fact that brick: of .first class quality can be manufactured on the Klaskanine, if they can't be made .any nearer to Astoria. If anybody about here, tired of paying sixteen to twenty dollars per thousand for brick want a few laid down at Astoria for about seven and a half to eight dollars now is the time to show your hand. Mac is chopping cord wood just now, but stands ready to make the brick on short notice. It can be done. A flash of light from the battery guns, at Forts Canby and Stevens last night, when the sunset signal gave note of another expiring day, was mis taken by numerous visitors at Astoria as a ray of sunshine. Ex-Mayor Stroud of Scio, was so struck in admiration of the scene that it is said he actually got up from the table, in the Occident dining room, where he was working out a special Clam contract, and gazed at it through an open window, nor could he be convinced that it was not the sun that produced the illumination until after the evidence of several gen tlemen had been taken to prove that it could not possibly be from the sun unless it was considerably behind' time, and being an experienced railroad man 3roud knew very well that could not he the case, on down grade with a wet track. Did you notice the apparition 1 The Oregon Steamship Companys steamer John L. Stephens, Capt. Mac ie, will leave Astoria to-morrow morn ing at two o'clock, for San Francisco. Mr. Villard, President of the company, is among the passengers, en route to the east, and will be absent about one year. His first business when there will be to secure and forward the iron for the Oregon Central Railroad, from St. Jo. to Junction. He will also start the construction of another new steamship for the line, not being able to purchase one ready built, and will then direct earnest efforts in behalf of introducing Oregon amongst people who will come and settle here. Mr. Villard well un derstands the wants of Oregon, sees that if we had here 200,000 more en terprising citizens it would be a com munity of unparalleled thrift and im portance. We are pleased to know that he is pleased with Oregon. ' , SUMMER VISITING. X7NITY AND OYSTERVILLE. "When summer travel begins this year the Hwaco Steam Navigation Co. will "put on a daily line of first class passenger boats between Astoria, the Forts, and Unity. Loomis & Caruth ers are prepared, with easy coaches and good horses, to make close con nection on the romantic beach drive between Unity and Oysterville, one of the loveliest routes for tourists on the Pacific coast. Capt. John Brown and others, owners of as handsome fleet of sailing craft on Shoalwater bay, as ever spread canvas or won a silver cup at a regatta, .are prepared to do that mag nitice scorje of water in the grandest manner possible. These are but a part of the out door preparations in that di rection for the entertainment of Sea side "visitors. Not a. stone will be left unturned to secure the most ample ac commodation the country and its va ried attractions afford, both inside and out. The Pacific Hotel at 0fsterville has been doubly increased in the ex tent of its capacity, thoroughly reno vated and refurnished, and will more than maintain its former reputation for excellence. The Bay View House, at Unity, under the management of the popular caterer C. H. Dexter, has been refitted, and many new and attractive features added to the grounds, with the surroundings about Unity, embra cing beautiful and shady groves for those who prefer camping, its accessi bility to Cape Hancock, within one and a half miles of Fort Canby, the Light house and Pilot's look-jut, taking in an expanse of old Ocean beyond the limits of ordinary vision, but within range and track of vessels and steam ers employed in the commerce of Ore gon, Puget Sound and the British pos sessions, with the numerous lakes front ing on Bakers bay, the advantages for fishing, driving, hunting walking, surf bathing in the Ocean, and warm bath ing in the bay near the house, at pleas ure, free teams to the beach and free boats on the bay, neat summer cotta ges, etc., etc., all together combine to make Unity an attractive and desirable resort, with, scarcely a parallel on the coast. Then it is so easily reached, visitors from Portland, and other parts interior, can be landed at Unity from Astoria without cliange in one and a half hours, by either steam or sail, passing within sight of the batteries at both Forts Stevens and Canby, free from dust and the annoyances of bag gage. Once at Unity they are within the gates of a Summer Paradise. The ride'" to Oysterville is over a road as smooth as a house floor, trackless as sands can be that are washed twice ev ery twenty-four hours by the ocean surf. CLATSOP AND SEA-SIDE. We have not heard what programme is to be inaugurated for the entertain ment of visitors to Clatsop Plains, for the coming season. The Sea-Side Ho tel (Ben Holladays), has been leased by a gentleman from California, Mr. J. C. Olmsted, and will be opened on the 1st of July. The Summer House, kept for so many seasons past by Mrs. Cloutrie, is now ready to receive visit ors. We are not advised positively with respect to the route which travel will take, but presume that the Katata will connect at Skipanon with stages down the Plains, as formerly, and that steamers of the Oregon Steam Naviga tion Company will land passengers at Fort Clatsop, connecting with convey ances to the sea-side by the new route recently opened. ASTORIA HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS Will this season be at least three times greater than those of any former year, in the history of the city. -The Occi dent, which has the justly merited reputation of being the best kept hotel north of San Francisco, has been com pletely and thoroughly refitted and the proprietors, Messrs. Megler & Wright, are unsparing in their attentions to the public. The new Parker House, just approaching completion with doubled rooms and conveniences, will soon be occupied, while the Globe, the Altoona and other Hotels and Restaurants are newly fitted, to all of which will be ad ded next month the new and magnifi cent hotel of Mr. S.N. Arrigoni, known as the Prince of caterers. His build ing will be finished inside to-morrow evening, but of this more anon. The New York people vow to let Dom Pedro alone when he returns to that city.

The World says of "Reddy the Blacksmith :" He was a robber and a murderer, a systematic ruffian, a pretty substantial and thoroustfi-oinp- drunk ard, and his twenty-odd years of resi dence in New York were fuH of offenses against the peace, property and decency of the city as the years of any other person who has ever dwelt. hit. We clip the foUowing "marine news item" from a Portland paper : John Martin, a tipsy sailor, found a buggy and horse standing in front of a store t on First street, which he "boarded" and sailed about in for a couple of hours and then returned them, when he was arrested. The court wiH examine his "log" in the morning. During A. P. Greene's presence in Washington while Ms case was undergoing investigation, Clymer formed an opinion that Greene was an honorable, conscientious gentleman. If Clymer had met him one time, at the Occident Hotel in San Francisco, in the presence of ladies, would he say that much for Greene, who is a dis reputable curso on general principles.

The vessel left Rio for Point de Galley and when a few days out the captain, mate and two seamen sickened and died of yeUaw fever. There was no one left on board to take, observations, and the boatswain took command and appointed the steward or cook mate ; then by hugging the shore he succeeded in getting the vessel back to Rio, after struggling three weeks with adverse currents and winds That boatswain deserves to be remembered in a sub stantial way by the owners. The in cident teaches the desirability of ac qiiiring a knowlede of the science of navigation on the part of aH who go down to the sea in ships and do busi ness upon the great waters. Itis often the case that aU hands below the mas-' ter and mates are. entirely ignorant of directing a ship on her course in emer gencies like the above.
