ASTORIA, OREGON: SATURDAY MA11CH 10, 1SS3 American Ship Bulldfm The now The IiiatCTJCXAST-CoMMANDBIl H. II. Gomngo, who brought the obelisk to Now York, has resigned from the navy and assumed the man agement of a large iron-ship build ing yard in Philadelphia. With the assistance of several capitalists he has leased the shipyard of the Philadelphia and Reading Rail road, and begun the building of vessels. He has already secured contracts for building a large iron sailing ship and for two smaller vessels. The ship is for "W. II. Starbuck, the general agent of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation company, and will be used on the California coast. It will be a. ship of 3,000 tons, and it will be the booond vessel of its kind ever built in the United States, first vessel, a sister ship, is being built bv John Roach. dimensions of the two vessels ;ire: Length, 225 feet; breadth of bnin, 42 feet; depth of hold, 23i feet. Iji a. recent interview with a N. IT. Sun reporter he said that lie had leased the yard for a long term of years. "1 resolved several m on Mis ago," he said, ''to lenvc the navy, but have been awaiting my promotion to be commander, due in two or three months now. I have been a lieutenant-commander seventeen years. But now I shall wait no longer." ""Who arc th1 capitalists who are supporting you in this enter prise?" askod the reporter. Wm. IL Vanderbilt, while having no direct interest in it, has kindly arranged things so that I can control a large block of stock. There are others whom I. should profer not to name. My friends in the city have been very prompt in subscribing to stock.' "Do you wropese to fiirht John jandotjyir shipbuilders?" "I propose to go into the legiti mate business of shipbuilding, of winch I have a thorough knowl edge, aud do not desire to fight or hurt any one. However, I shall nDt outer into any ring, but work iritlejpendently." Ars you sre of a profitable hustnoes?1 "I thiuk so. I may say that I have already assurance of plenty of work. Brighter times have come for the American merchant marine. It is on the rise, and there is m reason why the new vessels shoukl not be built here." :Cn they be "built as cheaply Hb in Groat Britain." 'Malarial for building is dearer here, but labor ib fully as cheap. Material is absurdly high, much utghor thwi in England. Foreign b..IL uLJvjs can never be admitted to Atnaricsn registry, unless the matorial for building ships is ad mitted free of duty. Every ship builder would much prefer getting his material free of duty to having an American registry denied to foreign ships. I favor the admis sion of foroign-built ships on the payment of a duty equivalent to the duty on the material of which thoy arc made. Any legislation whtoh does not provide for this would be directly against the inter ests of American labor, and no congress would dare to pass such a law." rtW1v do vou sav labor is as cheap lere as in England?' "An American mechanic will do in r. wrk in the same time than itn K ttfi-h mechanic, and we have nAXi labor-saving machines." l' oiutaader Grorringc went on to i-ay that in Europe wooden ves sels had been supplanted almost eniroly by iron vessels; which were five times as durable, and hence much cheaper. He gave statistics of the number of vessels in the coal trade showing that the demand-Tor iron vessels from this quarter will be great. At present, he saio all the ship3ards have much more work than thej' can attend to, and other yards are needed.. one in which Oregon was much j Saturday, friar. 10 at 10:30 a m interested, lier river and harbor improvements are of such a char acter as to demend the aid of th government, and the small allow ance heretofore ma.de. has scarcely been enough to push forward the) improvements as they were de manded by the increased impor tance of our commerce. The locks at the Cascades, will have to come to a stand still after the present appropriation is exhausted, while the river improvements from here to Astoria will have to be made by the city. Tiie most serious loss, however, to the northwest, is the appropriation provided in the bill, for the mouth of the Columbia. Jt is true the amount was insignificant 75,000 but it -nould be the commence ment of an important work and place the mouth of the Columbia hereafter on tiie regular list of ap propriations, snd the chance in the future would have been much better to get :l Jarrer allowance. Ir was that prince of Mitinsts, Charles Dickens, who said that "Duty is what others should do." Wiggins, the storm seer, has more exalted ideas. An Ottawa dis patch says that "as the time ap proaches for Wiggins'1 great storm, the interest becomes more inteie. Many timid persons are known to be pi ost rated with nervousness. Telejrranhie ie?orts state that several women have become insane through fear. Wiggins i visibly affected and his appetite is seri ously interfered with. He regrets the storm's coining, aud almost wishes now he had not predicted it in the interest of science. He, however, felt it his duty to his fellow cicatures." A LouisviLLK, Kv., school di rector after visiting a school and finding a total lack of discipline among the ixys reprimanded the tcacner, ana men procuring a strap administered indiscriminate justice by thiashing every boy in the loom. The indignant youth thereupon had the school director fined and also made it unpleasant for the unfortunate teacher. T WIM, SELL, AT "MY AUCTIOXKOOMi?.
