Prescott, tho managing agent of the defendant, should show cause why certain uionej's deposited with him by the consignees of the uueens cargo, should not bo brought into court, to an swer the exigency of the suit. The state ment of the point at issue was as lollows: A shin and carco were saved from a common peril after a considerable jetti son of the latter, and allowed by thesalv- ors to proceed to their destination, where tho saved cargo was delivered by tue master or agont to tho consignees with out contribution for salvage or jettison, but on the deposit of eacli consignee of a sum of money equal to 20 per cent of tho valuo of the cargo delivered to him "to cover treneral average' and tho execution of a bond for the payment of his pro portion of tlio 'Josses and expenses' con senuent upon such peril." Judge Deady hold thut tho salvage service lwing for the benefit of both snip and cargo, tne expense thereof constituted a general average; that m a suit against tue snip and cargo for salvage tho libelants might elect to treat such deposit as so far a substitute for the cargo delivered and re quire the agent of the vessel, under ad miralty rule 33, to bring the samo into court to answer mo exigency oi sucn sun. ft was accordingly ordered.that the pe tition of the plaintiff be granted, and the amount, some $30,000, bo paid into the court by Mr. Prescott by Mon day, the 24th inst.

Editob Astoeiax: Notwithstanding all the lessons of his tory or the practical teachings of experi ence, men will, unfortunately, forget the one or ignore tho other in their eagerness to gratify some paltry pleasure, or in dulge their apathy for the public weal. The true American pulse has evidently a healthy throb in Astoria. The pro gramme of Tjik AsToniix and of the Astoria Chamber of Commerce com mends itself to tho approbation of every man who has studied the laud question, and who has realized the nature of the evUs that flow from land monopoly. Tho articles m The Astobiax and the memo rial to congress of the chamber of com merce will certainly tend to hasten prompt action in this matter. The land question is rising out of the slough of forgetfulness. The fact that! me ngai oi every rauu iu lue u-a ui iuiiu is being abridged, and vast tracts given to railroad rings and speculators of every form, shade and degree, through dishon est administration of the lawg, what concerns the public. A few years ago, hardly a man opened his mouth about these' swindling land grants, depriving unborn generations of Americans of their heritage or birthright in tho soil. The newspapers resembled so many Delphine oracles in more than one particular. Con-! gress bartered away for so much palm-oil to a ring of railroad kings, who palm- j oiled their hands, the imperial heritage j of the people without ev?u making them fulfil their contract. These railroad grants were apparently i ested rights that no man thought of dis turbing. Though such grants were great robberies, they lay slumbering in secur ity, except when now and again roused for a second by the vain crie3 of justice, or by the firm stand of such men as were in favor of either forfeiture or building the rauroad. well, all that is altered now. If not in the heart, the land ques tion is at least in tho mouth of all men when they speak. "Whoever writes on public matters now, cannot ignore the land question. Take Villaru, btamord. L'rocKer, irouid fcCo. How have they made their mill ions? "Wero they not all poor men a few decades ago? Tho answer is plain: They have swindled thepubuonnd have their millions. "Why should not these millionaires be made to give back what thej'have robbed? In the past, while tho people lay su pine or only thought of modifying the white wage slavery in which they lived, tne comumaiion oi congress anu corpor ation could nllord to do anything they pleased; not only to swindle and rob the people wholesale and retail; bat to insult tnem; spit upon tnem, in auaiiion 10 pub lic robbery. The enormous swindles of tho public lands havo been clearly dem onstrated to the comgressional commit tee on public lands; yet, that committee is as silent as death on these vital meas ures, imperial iortunes nave oeen made by imperial railroad rogue3, who were paupers comparatively speaking a few ears ago. Tho railroad rings generally withhold until by tho labor of tho whole people of tue country tuey are increased in vaiuo. The railroads have up to tho present time only disposed of some twenty mil lions acres granted these corporations within the last few years; and they have realized for these twenty million acres over one hundred million dollars. On the two hundred millions m round num bers of United States interest-bearing bonds given to them, they refused to pay any interest. The government had to pay and did pay such interest, nmounting to .$39,0J0)J0. Is this right ? Does it not dig in under every foundation of our institutions ? Is it t j go on long? Is it not cowardly for tree people to looic on witu stmt np3 and folded arms while this is in full blast? Can anythmg under tho canopy of heaven excuse men for looking on at tho rnnroaching doom of the republic and the lasting doom of posterity ? Can men, who are by nature's ordinance Americans, support the yoke which chains them downr Are not these railroad lands stolen from the Creator Himself when they are stolen from his equal chil- drenr "What remedy is there at hand ? Will petitions to congress bring the needed cure? Ha 1 ha ! ha ! answers laughingly back tho "Golden Spike Brigade." The N.

It is estimated that the state of Massa chusetts does not raise enough wheat during one year to supply the tables of that commonwealth jvith bread for ono day, wliich is only another way of saying that the residents of tho old Bay state have to buy what they eat. In this re spect they resemble Astorians. We of Astoria have to buy nearly all we eat. In some respects we are as islanders who de pend on vessels for what their own insu lar country does not afford. Tinio and again have Astorians had to go with light dinners, not that they lacked the wherewith to buy, but because the peas end the cabbage, the celery and the sauces, the fruit and other concomitants were tossing in the hold of the vessel out side the bar. Whether wise or unwise : whether productive of prosp?rity or the reverse: whether necessary or not. the fact is patent that nearly all we eat is ' brought to us, and we pay well for it. j The profit goes mo3tly to outside parties. Our merchants make very little, some- j time1) barely save themselves, oftentimes : lose. Especially is this the case withl fruit, etc., which is brought, here at a high rate of freight, and sold bv our grocers more as a matter of accoaiuioda- i tion than with a hope of making a profit. ; The high, prices tlint Astonans pay for food has Ieen the subject of considerable comment in theso columns. The reason for the high prices may lc brietly titated : demand greater than the supply, and though when one has to pay fifty cautaj for a little beefsteak, ninety-five centi a i roll for butter, and more for a dozen of ! eggs warranted eighteen carat? fine than for the hen that laid, them, yet. tue-1 knowledge that tho seller has such a i slight margin of profit is illustrative of i the proposition stated above. . lour ls.one ot the few thm-M that is of Oregon production, an A 1 article sell-f ing in Astoria for 1.50 a small sack. ! bometime, when we have the Wil-' lamette valley wheat pouring into! Astoria elevators from tho rail way track and Astoria mills grinding it for European shipment we may be able to get flour a little cheaier. Till then we must depend upon Salem or Albina. For hpni, the Astorian hps to depend on the Willamette valley, though fair articio of (Jalifornia ham is brought here. The best ham, wo are constrained to say, comes from the oast, and by tho time it gets to the Astoriau's breakfast table it costs enough to justify the expectation of a prime cut, tweuty ono cents a pound not being an outside figure. Fresh moat is extremely high, and as it is one of tho principal articles of purchase, the price that ono has to pay for it is noticeable. Iho Astona butchers have tho reputation of furnish ing neater, cleaner, fatter and juicier meat than tho jnurvevors of anv other city in the northwest, and to meet the demands of their customers, situated as they aro down hero in tho extreme west ern part of the state, often taxes their abilities to the utmost. They have to pay a high price for cattle and sheep and all things considered aro not getting rich very rapidly at the present prices, flutter and eggs aro on tho borderline between necessities and luxuries. Like other extravagances they come high, but people will have them. As to vegetables, we are better supplied. l'otatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, etc. of splendid qual ity are brought from Clatsop, and from across the river, and find ready salo. Ap ples come down the river, and this sea son are scarce, and consequently dear, $1.75 a box leiug about the prevailing figure. In other departments of the fruit line there is a good deal bought in the way of dried and canned fruit, particu larly the latter. Though Astoria is head quarters for the finest salmon in the world, jet there is comparatively Iittlo of the canned article consumed uere, partly because wo get such a surfeit of it when it is finest and freshest in tho spring. On the grocers shelves are mackerel, oodlish, trout, wlutefish, etc.- which find their purchasers on the ground that variety is the spice of life. In game and fresh fish, however, Astoria excels. Through out the year we havo. an ever changing variety of the finest fish, and in the ifa.ll and winter months the stores aro never devoid of fresh game of all varifties.
