Foreign .Salmon .Siiipmtat. The Ice King cleared from this port yesterday with a valuable cargo for Lon don. She was chartered by A. W. Berry, of this place. Her disbursements proper do not aggregate above S'J.OOO. Had she gone to Portland the probability is, argu ing from past experience, the vessel's dis bursements would have been at least G,O00. This illustrates tho suparioritv of Astoria over interior paints as a port for ships to load and sail from, as in the case of the Wallacetotcn and other vessels that have loaded here, the great difference in favor of Astoria. On the Ice King go 47,491 cases salmon and GO cs halibut. Followinc are the shippers: Capo Fox Packing Co., 1,554 cases; Cutting Packing Co.. 100: Aber deen Packing Co.. 12,905; West Coast, 7,212; Occident, D.4G3,- I. X. L., 7,2G7; Ocean, CK)8; Geo. V.

Among the articles jettisoned on the Queen of the Pacific when she ran aground at the mouth, of tho Columbia some time ago, was a box containing some beautiful wedding presents, tho property of 3Ir. B. L. Stone and bride. Tho jewels were thought irrevocably lost, but it seems that recently tho caso con taining them was found by somo wreck ers on tho coast, and falling into the hands of honest Capt. A. T. Harris of the life saving service, the treasure trove was Bent daring the veek to tho grateful owners in this city. These gifts, aside from their intrinsic value, are doubly dear to tho owners precious for tho givers' sake and precious on account of their miraculous return from the sea. Welcome. He Went in Sttle. "Mickey Fat," whoso sylph-like form has long been a familiar portion of the landscape, is no longer a citizen of Oregon. Hu sailed yesterday in a great big ship for the cove of Cork, and the places that knew him once will know him no longer. Long had Mickey resisted tho coy blandish ment of thoso who induce bold mariners to man tho yards, but when tho trim Inchgrcen came in, and ho was shown hor superior accommodations ho yielded. It was expressly stipulated, that Mickey should have a stateroom to himself dur ing tho en tiro voyage; that fresh linen should be laid out for him every morn ing, a glass of sherry, with a raw egg iu it, urougni io uis oeusiuo wnen no rang, and hot water for shaving and somo but tered toast be furnished ihim at tho same time. Mickey will distinguish himself and be heard from in foreign courts. The Iiavaco Railroad. L. A. Loomis was in the city yesterday and was ex tremely sanguine in relation to tho pro posed railroad from Uwaco to Oyster- ville and Gray's Harbor, of which so much has appeared m The Astobias lately. Without any effort Mr. Loomis has secured over half tho amount re quired to build and equip the road, and he anticipates but little uilhculty in pro curing the remainder. Tho intention is to begin operations as soon as possible. The route selected is an excellent one, ana the natural road-bed over which tho rails arc to be laid is of such a character that nothing but the most inclement weather could interfere with successful prosecution of the work. It is thought that ninety days from tho time tho first wheelbarrow load of earth is shovelled off, tho loot of tho locomotive will wake the echoes of Baker s Bay, and it is rea sonable to suppose that the 1st of May will see tho conductor at Uwaco sing out, "All aboard for UysterviHo I Wak of Races. A fores of men is en gaged in laying some water pipe down Concomly street. Now, to lay water pipe in a due and proper manner, it is neces sary to dig a trench. Up tho street and toward this trench yesterday afternoon came a drove of Chinese, herding and surrounding four fat hogs, which, with sacrificial rite, were to be placed as a votive offering to tho gods. Orie of the hogs tumbled into tho trench, and falling upon one of the men working therein, aroused his ire. Striking, the hog and casting him forth with violence his owner objected to and spat upon the ground with vehemence.whereupon the Caucasian arose and slapped the Chinaman and con signed him and his kinfolk to eternal combustion. Then aid tho three other Chinamen eo to Justice Fox. and before him, in the name of their injured coun tryman, demand a warrant for tho ar rest of the man that smote their hog and their comrade, the warrant being in trusted to the chief captain of police, even unto Clark Loughrey, who made diligent but ineffectual searcii atter the offender.

Next Tuesday is Christmas day and the general custom being to remember present and absent friends by giving them something in honor of the day the question arises where shall one go to make their purchases. At tho New York Novelty Store is ono of tho handsomest and best arranged stocks to be found anywhere. Toys, musical instruments, fancy goods in profusion; the supply of elegant Christmas cards being particu larly noticeable. It is surprising to learn the low rate at which these good; arc sold, and the hundreds that daily visit this establishment will attest the popu larity of the interesting proprietor. In deed one can hardly pass the beautifully nrronrrrwl trrinflnTra ontonnn in seo what presents so fair an exterior, and once in he or she will be sure to see some. thins that strikes their fancy and just suited to the friend, the relative, or the children whose heart they would gladden by a Christmas present. For father there is a handsomo dressing case, for mother a beautiful work basket or an ornamentsl toilet set; for sister an elegantly em broidered silk piu cushion or a silver card case, for brother a gold pen or set of studs. The little folks are espacially remem bered, tho finest toys the finest games, the neatest boxes and the countless de vices that please and delight the children are here m profusion. Everything is marked in plain figares, and tho little fellow who comes with two bits to buy a set of tea things for his smaller sister to play Jt keeping house gets the same at tention as his mother who has seen a set of silver tea spoons with which to please her married daughter. In variety of musical instruments tho New York Novelty store presents tho greatest display. One in particular, de serves mention. It is tho Clariona. Ev eryone knows tho difficulty of getting music at a dance or ball, especially at a distance from tho city. The Clanona is an orchestra in itself. With each instru ment goes a complete set of dance music, and no one that can go through tho steps of a quadrille, or who likes the misty mazes of the waltz need forego the pleasures of a dance, provided they can procure a partner and a Clariona." There is another and a larger instru ment that is an entire novelty. It is called an orchestrone. In outward ap pearance it resembles a cabinet oruan. It stands in a handsomo black walnut caso, finely finished and elaborately carved. Simply considered as n piece of furni ture it would bo a handsome addition to anv parlor, but when one takes into con sideration tho sweet niusio it affords, it will be found to be a most desirable ac quisition to anv family. It has pedals as any other organ, and by tho simplest mechanism can be made to play any tuno desired. Its rich, full notes are "heard to advantage in tho magnificent strains of Beethoven, the symphonies of Mozart, the sublime composition of Handel or tho more familiar melodies such as are usually sung in church choirs. Crowds daily listen to the choice music it affords. It is Mr. Strauss' intention to .dispose of this instrument for $125, to introduce their salo ho being the only authorized agent of tho manufacturers in this place. With thf intention he offers it at a raffle for 2J0 a chance, and for this sum some one of our citizens will get a splendid (Jhristmas present, lo go through the list of goods displayed at the Now York Novelty Store would be an interminable task; suffice it to say, pay tho establish ment a visit and see for yourselves. You will find tho most courteous attention aud cannot fail to bo pleased. He Understood. The teacher wrote this sentence ou the blackboard: "Kindness performed by rule is no kindness." "Now, children,'' said she. "can you tell mo what that means?'' "You bet I canP shouted tho worst boy iu school. "Well, what is ur" ''I think it means that when vou wallop a feller with yoar ruler and say that you only do it as n kindness to him, that it ainHnosuch thing." The teacher immediately erased the sentence and called up the first class in mental ethics. ''You will rob yourself !' cried a gay young girl, Who was ono of a party of three, Among whom, a youth, with many a twirl, Was' dividing an orange, with glee. "Not at all," the generous youth re plied, As ho fumbled with his locket; "For I love to give; and then, beside, "I've a dozen more in my pocket.''

Three hundred inches wide; So great was its stupendous strength, It lashed in foam tho tide. Its tail was long, its head was short. And near its nine-foot nose W'ero caverns, whence a roaring snort Blew like a cyclone blows. Each sido of its ferocious face Was an onormous horn; And, with a grim and ghastly grace. It shook its mane with scorn. These are the lacts which thoss tars gave, Without remorse or ruth; They swear they'll sink beneath, the wave If this is not '-tho truth.'
