fcs gailrg s&xi$n ASTORIA. OREGON: D. C. IKEIVXI Editor. SUNDAY Jiixk 35, 187fl Another Deiujro Coming A Belgian professor has publish ed a work entitled "Periodicite des Grands Deludes Resultant du Mouvement Graduel de la Linge des Apsides de la Terre," in which he warns us that we may he on the lookout for another deluge of the world. At certain regularly re curring intervals, he maintains, the waters of one hemisphere are sud denly precipitated across the equator, and flood the other. The last of these deludes, which always flow from north to south, or from south to north, was that of Noah's time, which was from the norh. Hence the explanation of the great preponderance of water in the southern hemisphere, and of the general southern trend of "rkTfli in1 Slnnln Amnrmo A rrmo and many minor peninsulas. The next of these deluges will flow from the south to the north. The cause, he argues, is the alternate increase and decrease in the ice caps at the poles, and the conse quent change of the earth's equi librium. Since 134:8 the south pole has been continually enlarging, while the north pole has been pro portionately diminishing, to-day the diameter of the southern gla cier beinjr about 3000 miles and that of the northern 1500 miles. "When these two glaciers shall have arrived at their maximum and minimum extension, the earth will then tilt over and be submerged by another great flood, the fif teenth of the kind that has oc curred. In view of this impend ing and somewhat serious prob ability, the question arises, what are we going to do about it? Jf no one can offer a better sugges tion, would it not be advisable that each of us resolve himself into his own ark br wearing night and day one of Paul Boyn ton's swim ing costumes? Railroail News. Walla Walla Watchman, June 6th. There is nothing under the sun in this country that takes so well as railroad news, and the best of it is, one can have it in all shapes. The Utah Northern, under the great railroad magnate Jay Gould, is pushing its way on to the Co lumbia, and once there, they will stop for nothing. Already we learn that the Oregon Steam Navigation company is negotiating with the Utah Northern company, and has fixed its figures to sell out, but will that help us any? "We must have more than one outlet to be safe from oppression, hence we hope that the Northern Pacific railroad will hasten and not tarry by the wayside. The contempla ted branch road to Weston to con nect with the valley road has been swallowed up by the Utah North ern. We also learn that that eompan' will forthwith build a road from here to Dayton; in fact, one can hear almost anything every day, but we don't expect a railroad this year. Of course the' will be builtwith unfailing certain ty, but as long as they ignore the route toward the hih sea, so long do we see a iriqger on the fence, in all this railroad enthusiasm. Rev. J. II. Stover, of the Christian church, who is an old and experienced miner, received a letter from an old brother miner near Leadville, urging him to come there and take an interest in a, mine he has discovered on Texas Creek. ulf your church had the sand in 'em, and wanted to do what wold be the most good for sil, tha wold cend you out here to preach to the hardest clas of cin ers out of hel." This beats Scottv Briggs, who went to get the parson to preach Buck Fanshaws funeral. THE HARBOR OF REFUGE. Trinidad, the Favorite Place for a Breakwater by Small Crafts. The Board of Pacific Coast En gineers, composed of Lieutenant Colonel C. S. Stewart, Lieutenant Colonel JR. S. "Williamson and Maior G. H. Mendell, all of the United States Ensineonnor acting as a Commission to mine the location of the Corps, water on the northern coast, that will make a harbor of refuge, met at their office, No, 533 Kearny street San Francisco, on the 5th. The first gentleman called upon was Capt. Bolles, of the Oregon Steamship company's steamer George Elder, who gave a detailed description of the various currents and winds of the northern Pacific ocean and also described each of the proposed sites of Trini dad, Crescent City, Coos bay, Port Orford and the Columbia river. In his opinion the proper site for the breakwater was the latter place, and it should be built out from where Fort Stevens stands, so as to protect the south channel there. lie thought that' the great and increasing: trade of Oregon de manded it, and that all coasters would be benefitted by the loca tion. There was also less fog north of Cape Blanco than south of it. Captain J. G. Glidden was unequivocally in favor of Trini dad. Captain Bonnifield of the schooner Jessie Nickerson agreed with Captain Glidden. Captain Lass of the schooner Elnorah also favored Trinidad for general com merce. If the Puget-sound and Columbia trade were alone to be considered, Port Orford was not the best location, on account of its reef. Captain Nelson who was greatly interested in Humboldt bay commerce, favored Trinidad for general commerce, and for Puget-sound and Columbia river trade, Cape Flattery. He thought there ought to be two, one at each place. Oregon Produce Shipments.
