Astoria, Oregon, Thursday Morning, September 13, 1883 No. 141. FROM ALL POINTS. The recent storms have almost totally destroj-ed the grain and other crops in the south of Ireland. During the first seven months of 1SS3 there arrived at all ports in the count nearly 370,000 persons. The Massachusetts prohibition ists ar.e to hold a slate convention in Boston, September 20th, and say they intend to mnkc a vigor cms campaign. Eleven days after a girl babe had been born to a painter's wife in Hazleton, Pa., she resumed hei household duties for a day and addod a bo' to the family. For thirty years there has been no public gaming in Germuny. Card-playing in private is almost universal, tax being collected dur ing the last year on 3,250,000 packs of cards. This country probably never before had so many distinguished Europeans as are now here for va rious purposes, chiefly that of witnessing the opening of the Northern Pacific railroad. Advices from Loango, AYest Africa, dated August 15th, state that Henry M. Stanley, after pene trating far into the interior, had returned to Stanley Pool. It is believed that Stanle' intends to travel over the country covered in his former Journey along the cast coast. ... n -ft. won meaning person gives hints telling "How to live on sev- iity-n u t;uuis u weeic. inert) i r. i i it mi is such a thing, says the Solano JRqiubltcan,as being tooclose,and most editors will just keep on squandering eighty cents a week, even if they sec ruin spring them in the face. Contracts to the amount of 1,- 500,000 for the construction of new lines have been awarded by the board of trustees of the Postal Telegraph Company. Mackay, the president, will leave for Cali fornia in a few days, but he will see the work fairly under way be fore he leaves New York. Hicks Pasha with 5,000 troops has started from Khartoum, along the left bank of the White Nile, on a campaign against the False Prophet. The latter is reported to be resolute and decisive. Fijrht ing is expected by the end of the month. The rebels have closed the road from Berleeto Suakim. The Austrian minister of foreign affairs has sent a dispatch to all representatives of Austria aboroad informing them of the precise status of the insurrectionary movement in Croatia, and an nouncing the determination of the government to use extreme measures to suppress the rebellious movement forthwith. Among the striking contrasts exhibited in character, the most frequent were the comparisons between Stonewall Jackson and Ewell. On one occasion, Lee re ceived this devout dispatch from one flank: "By the grace of God we have beaten them on the right;" and the next moment from the other wing: "By d d hard fighting we have whipped them on the left." One lieutenant was Jackson, and the other -was Ewell. After all the talk of driving the golden spike on the northern Pa cific it was rather fatal to the ro mance of the occasion to use an ordinary iron spike and to drive it home with an ordinary sledge hammer. The unities were pre served, however, in this way: The same spike which was driven in the first tie laid on the road was used on the last and the man who struck the first blow .struck the hist, which riveted the long line of rails across the continent. The JVbrth German Gazette, in an editorial, attacks the advice re cently given France by the London Times to relinquish her colonial enterprises and concentrate her forces at home, which means, ac cording to the Gazette, Germany. The Times article, it says, would show greater political wisdom by refraining from childish attacks on the Gazette. If the Times re tained its former acumen, it would preceive that the recent article in the Gazette, which was written to maintain peace, helped to lessen the tension between England and Frai e, the effect of which was eloqu-ntly shown in the release by the French in Madagascar of Shaw, the English missionary. The plan of using the electric light in lighthouses has been car ried out in a new lighthouse at South Head, on the English coast, with the happiest results. The light is of the first order, and a revolving white light, showing a flash of eight seconds in every minute. The lamp is constructed so that gas, electricity, or oil can be used. On all sides testimony is being borne to the remarkable power of the electric light, its re flection having been seen at a distance of sixty miles. The negotiations which have been under consideration beUvcen Prince Bismarck and M. Barattia- no the Romanian Minister of Foreign affairs, with a view of forming an alliance with Germany, have been concluded. M. Barat tiano will shortly resume negotia tions with Count Kalnoky, Aus-tro-Hungarian minister of foreign affairs. These conferences are ex pected to result in Roumania entering into relations with the Austro-Hungariau and German empires, similar to those of Italy with those powers. "What's that thing?" asked a dairyman, as a chromo peddler held up a picture in which all the hues of the rainbow were displayed in reckless profusion, without regard to harmony or correctness. "A cow," replied the smiling art con noisseur, with a show of pride. "A cow?" gasped the milk-handler, "well, that's the first lime I ever saw a green cow browsing on salmon-colored grass. Here John!" he ye-led to the hired man, "bring me the gun!" But the chromo fiend climbed the fence and made a break for the woods. A dispatch from Hongkong of the 11th, slates that a Chiucso mob at Canton burned the houses of several opium merchants and their wharves, causing great con sternation amonjr foreign resi dents, the most of whom sought refuge aboard vessels in the 'river. Violence wife offered to persons, and a force of Chinese troops was called out, which quickly . dis persed the rioters. On receipt of the news at Hongkong several gunboats were immediately sent to Canton to afford protection to foreign merchants. China either has already or is about to intimate to the United States government that her ser vices as arbitrator between France and China would be very favora bly received in Peking. It is be lieved that if France sends any considerable re-enforcements to Anam, China will at once officially declare war and then demand that England fulfill her duty as a neu tral power by closing her coaling stations to trench transports. This v.ould involve the French transports carn'ing coal enough to take them through to Saigon, or else the shipping of coal to tl French Red sea station, Abok, which, in any event, the Chinese believe, would cause sufficient de lay to enable the French forces at Hanoi to be overwhelmed. A Star cablegram from Madrid of September 9th says: Spanish officials state that a very import ant discovery has been made in connection with the recent emcute in Cuba, having for its object the freedom of the island from Span ish control. It is stated that a number of well-known and influ ential citizens have been tor some time secretly purchasing arms and ammunition4 in Paris and shipping them to Cuba, in such manner as to escape the attention of the Spanish officials there. These warlike supplies have been quietly couveyeel into the interior and placed in the hands of a band of adventurers, whose force has been o-reatlr an mm antral hv the enlist ment of natives, and quite an army of welbequipped men are now ready" to proclaim themselves in open rebellion against Spanish rule. It is also stated that sub stantial aid has been given this or ganization by wealthy Cuban resi dents of New York and New Or leans and that the plot has gained such a footing that large re-enforcements of Spanish troops will be necessary to suppress the re volt. The London Times editorially says: France is steadily drifting into war -with China. The latter is vulnerable only in those ports which occupy a quasi international position and any blow struck there will be felt throughout Europe. A shock to the English trade in the East Tndias will be most dis astrous. The relations between England and France will be seri ously embittered thereby. The dis location of the cotton trade would put out of employment thousands of operatives in the Lancashire factories and the revenue to the British crown from India would show a serious deficit. The Times points out that in the event of war, the Americans, Germans, Japa nese and even the Chinese them selves would secure more of the foreign and coasting trade in the east than the French. A dispatch from Gold Spiko station, says that on the arrival of the Villard party at the scene of the celebration there was witnessed a most extraordinary spectacle; three hundred men with brawny arms quickly laid the iron and drove the spikes on the last rail of the completed track, except the last spike. During the progress of the work, which was witnessed by the foreigners with amazement, the band played and the people shouted. "When nearly completed a cannon salute was fired by the detachment of the Fifth Infantry present. The last spike was fin ally driven home by H. C. Davis, Assistant General Passenger Agent of the road, who drove the first spike on the opening of the road, and this spike was the same one driven by him first. The end was reached as the sun was setting be hind the mountains. The enthu siasm of the people, variously esti mated from three to five thousand, was indescribable. The height reverberated the mingled sounds of cannon and the shouts of the men. R Absoiutely Pure. This powder never varies. A marvel o purity, strength and wlulesomeness.
