; m gto gall Estate Ti Pooled Their Issues. ASTOItlA, OREGON: TIFBSDAY' .mni"...3lAKCn G, 1SF3 Presidential Aspirations. It'is arid that the movement star tod several months ago to pro mote Ge. Sherman's aspirations for tfce presidency, so far from hav ing beta abandoned, is iti active operation. Xot onty has it the warm support of public characters ltko Col. Ingersoll, who are well known friends and followers of Mr. Bkune, but the ex-secretary himself m various ways gives it CMOiMinvgament. It would be an or nor to conclude that when Col. lugorsoM flung Gen. Sherman's fiajj to tW Ureexe it was simply casting a aktp on the water to test the cur rant. It means much more than than tJmL It was the first actual stoj) i x pinn, deliborately de riseti, xad jroceeding chiclLy from the brain of Mr. Elaine. Blaine, wWle saving that he has given up the nice, and probably having oonvittottd himself that he has done so, is yet toying with the presidency without being a caitdklnte himself. Tliere is lit tle reserve about his intention to control the nomination. His friondc profess a settled com ic t'ion tlint lie is thoroughly in ear nast "While 3r. Blaine does irtrt pretend that the chances are net against the Republicans, he qUericsUos the hope that with Sher ituut the country may be carried agmatt tbe Democrats. To this Mr. Blaine is at present jiving considerable attention. Ho and Gen. Sherman are not only ofose friends rather closer than on a former occasion besides being: distantly related, but be tween tbem there exists the kind of understanding which becomes neoawry at the outset of an ontorprisc of this kind. To pio mote it the soldier oleincnt is in the first place largely counted on. It is caused to be understood that Gen. Grant's favor has been en- and "the boys," as Gon. Sherman delights to call tin soklter, it is believed can be ralHed for him as they were for Grant. BORX. A Chicago dispatch sa3's that!

It was taken in latitude 10 dog. 41 min. noith, longitude 0'i dog. 2-i min. west, about one hundred and five mileb northwest from St. Thomas.
