gfc$ uilxi Qslsvimx ASTORIA. OREGON: JT. C. IREIiAXD... Ertilor. TUESDAY Ferru auy 11 , 1871) Tlie Eastern Plane. Although several contagious dis eases have traversed portions of the eastern hemisphere under the Common name of the plague; 3-et, the disease which is now making such terrible ravages there is the same peculiar disease of that name -which has caused such wonderful desolation in various ages. It is a very fatal disease both conta 2ious and infectious and charao terized by carbuncles, swelling, and ulceration of the lymphatic glands. In the fourteenth century, under the name of the Black Death, it started in Egypt, and spread over the whole of the eastern hemis phere. The death-rate for three years of this time (1348 to 1351), was terrible. Thirteen 'million deaths occurred in China, and twelve millions more in other parts of Asia. In Europe, including the British Isles, twenty five millions perished from this disease. Not unlike a great prairie fire, it seemed to be checked only when there was -no more suitable material to be consumed. Its last visit to England was in ICG5, when it caused one hundred thousand deaths in London alone. Since then its attacks have been 'generally confined to the countries near the eastern shores of the Mediterranean, where it is now causing so much death and desola tion. We hope it may be confined where it is; for as yet no cure nor preventive has ever been found for this most terrible scourge. P. T. Barnum, now a candi 'Hate for the United States senator ship from Connecticut, has a very simple .platform-: "I have not got la bee in my bonnet' as large as a pin's head, and. never shall have. T agree with Gov. Hawley that the office is not one to be sought for; but if Connecticut wants my ser vices she can lfave them, and the public will find their work is dili gently attended io by a live man." The jLegion of Honor- Boca! Deco ration. Frm the Belfast Weekly tfelec, Jan. 11th. It will, wo are sure, bo learned with much gratification that the Grand Cross of the Legidn of Honor -has been conferred by Marshal Ma.c Mahon upon John D. Barbour, Esq., J. P., Hilden, Lisburn. The honor has been bestowed, we imderstand,-in connection with the Grand Prix award at the Paris exhibition to the rirm of Messrs. Barbour, T,f Hilden, "the head of which is the recipient of the Cross of the -Legion. Both is an award of merit to a distinguished firm of manufacturers and as an individual honor to a gentleman of high personal worth, the bestowal of the decoration 'cannot but be acknowledged as just; aud we have no doubt that the intelli gence will be received with general Hatisfaction by the numerous friends of Mr. Barbour both in this country and in America, where the name of the Hilden manufacturers has long since become well knowu. We con gratulate Mr. Barbour upon being the recipient of so honorable decoration as that of the Grand Cross of the 'French order. It is a nfcirk of ctfa- -tinction which Iras not been too liberally bestowed, and we trust that it will' Ire warn long by the gentle man whom ir-now adorns. We passed an old la'dy stagger ing under the burden of her bag 'age w?10 was too poor to ride or pay a porter. Before I knew it he -had her load in his own hand without a word said, and he carried it until he gave it to her at her des tination. When he returned I asked him what she gave him in re turn. He answered : "She gave me the richest reward I ever re .ceived for so small a service, and she didn't even thank me; she said 'God bless your good mother, for you 'have one.flt.hQme." jE.

SUGGESTIONS TO .PHILANTHRO PIC PEOPLE OF THE ATLAN TIC AS WELL -A'S THE PA CIFIC SIDE. Specif to tho Asforinn. "WivLLA Walky, Feb. 1. "It is not good that man should be alone." To an' of 3Tour readers who are not read np on authorities for the above asser tion, we would refer them to the sec o.id chapter of Genesis; also to re ports of our territorial asylum for the insane; to causes that help maii3T of the sensational items of newspapers published in our territory; to the hu manity scattered over the wild fertile plains of this great northwest, m that state of single wretchedness which bachelors oni3T know. While the densely populated Atlantic states are crowded with fresh, healthy, intelli gent, industrious, good 'women, toiling earnest l3r, 3'ct cheerfully, for the mere pittance that keeps thuin tidily dressed and gives them the plainest necessar ies of life; they might here become companions to spin, to weave, aud to sew; to milk and churn and drive to market; plan for and encourage the cultivation of luscious fruits and-br-ries, and tempting vegetables of the garden, -together w;th the fragrant beauties of the flowc' kingdom; bake the pork and beans "as they should be baked,"' and loaves df bread to eat. Yea, veril3 the chickens, the birds, the cat and dog, the sheep, the lambs, the calves, the turkeys, and the pump kins from the corn field, would help make welcome in a chorus enviable and now unknown. The rich soil of the land now spreading far and wide in tlormaril profusion of nature, would be cultivated with bounteous reward; your energies would have an incentive anfi. :n reward; you might share with your friends, you might have more re lations", who knows; now don't fool yourself, don't look to the rich man withxhis habits formed beyond the en joyment of any recreation,' any pleas ure but greed, with his hoarded gains of money, his debilitated form, his nervous, grasping, weakened energies, perhaps his only child in the grave and his home a hell on earth; but see the happy farmer with his broad acres his wealth of health, his merry, robhst children; his smiling wife; and tell us which is your choice, and help us answer the question. Why are the rich, broad acres of our land lay ing idle, vacant, not taken for the giving? Who will be the first hto send for one of these good women who may be seen in the Massachusetts factories by the hun dreds, and in different 'states on the Atlantic coast 03' the thousands, in Washington Territory when? What are our philanthropists doing, what is our government doing, 'what are we doing that these thousands of beauti ful homes now unoccupied are so slow ly being taken up ? Wo would suggest to tho many looking for worthy donations, select your honest families, give them the j loan of a passage out here, take a mort gage on their first crop, and when you are repaid with interest and thanks, try again. Make yourself and your honest fellowman prosperous and .happy. We will welcome them to one hundred and sixt3r acres of Uncle Sam's choicest land in a mild but beautiful climate where, with all the terrors of the past rigid winter, our thermometers have not indicated as low as zero ; where disease among cat tle, horses, swine or poultry, is un known ; where crops know no failure from iiiy cause ; where energy and perseverence have an unfailing reward. Time is fast dissipating difficulties with which we have to contend. This vast public domain granted to soulless corporations years ago, is about to re vert to the government, and the peo ple, to whom it belongs. Influences at Washington city are humbugging our last and present delegate to cong ress, but the people will not longer submit. Indian difficulties will soon have a change of polic3', cheap trans portation and communication with the seaboard and "world are opening up, we want moieJ. H. Mitchell's in congress, more emig -ation, to make us known and'liea; d throughout the land. We want 1 1 se factory girls here, we waiit the fac r3r proprietors here, to utilize sme of ihe many magnificent water powers, now running to waste, where their skill would find ready and rich remuneration. "We want the tramps that are infestinjr larger communities. J hero and we will make men of them, we could give to each one of them a j quarter section of rich land, with rip ipling brooks .blooming .with flowery, andstiu have millions of acres left for those who come after to teach them to lk from nature up to nature's God. , AVe can give them all a residence and a TO,te' thefact is: We are tramps our selves, only some of us have attained to such a degree of respectability as to : make us loth to advertise the circum stances that brought us here. We want preachers, lawyers and orators; we want them to show us what Horace Greely knew abdnt farming; we want working men, mechanics, professors, to help us find onr mineral, coal, and limestone deposits. We want all here where they wont be crowded. If any who come are physically weak, the climate and refreshing atmosphere of our high altitudes and' mountains will invigorate them to a new life; if they are mentally deformed, perhaps they might get an appointment as comman der of the department of the Columbia. If they wont work we will make danc ing masters of them, and have "a way up time," but come anyway, we want you all here. If you can't come send a delegate to spy out the land, send us one of your tfrtmps 'for wliidh we would like to exchange a Chinaman; or if yon will send one of those factory girls along with him we will, as soon as we'ean fix them up at house-heep-ing. That is we would like to, send 31111 all the Chinamen we have ever seen and our note for the balance due. Do not forget that we also want the working men and women. We are building some of the finest ships afloat and want help to b'uild more, and better ones. We have saw mills that saw one hundred and sixty thousand fee't of lumber per da3 We want help to build larger mills, and want help in those already ruuning, to tend the machinery, to load the lumber, raft the logs, men in logging camps, for the plaining mills, foundries, woolen mills, grist mills, manufactories and workshops. Wo want to take from our rivers and bays three million dollars worth of salmon this .year, and want help to get them in the markets of the world. Fishermen, sailors, pilots, engineers, firemen, captains, warehousemen, clerks, and light-house keepers, that can be relied on for the reckonings of the land and the sea. We want the world to know that we have the most wonderful inland sea and harbors on the globe, and we want men to navigate these waters. Wo hrtve oil the coast an abund ance of cod-fish and halibut, and in our bays and rivers delicious oye ters, clams, lobsters, Smelt, herring and trout. Bring a match along with 3rou, and we will have some 011 the half-shell, and the balance cooked. They belong to Uncle Sam and he has plenty of kindling wood to spare. Wild blackberries, -strawberries, huckle berries, salmon-berries, thimble ber ries and blackberries can be easily picked, and t'here are plenty of cran berries in the" marshes, for sauce with the duck, and geese, and swan, that will make a variety with the pheasants the prairie chickens and venison. Our apple, peach and plum orchards need attention. We grow the largest and most luscious pears in the world and we "want everybody to know that, our corn, barley and oats are equal to any; Extensive coal mines, cement and limestone quarries are ready as gifts to the settler, mica quarries, gold, sil ver, iron and copper deposits are scat tered all over the' territory and Uncle Sam says take one. Come along, with your wife's relations, come in colo nies, come anyhow, always remember ing that thou shalt cam thybread by the sweat of tlrybrow. P. 0. Box, 350. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. MONEY TO LOAN.
