ASTORIA, OREGON: THURSDAY JANUARY 3, ISSi Ex-Gov. Hekdbicks is in robust health. So is Mr. Tilden. Two of a kind are as good as a pair. It is thought that Yillard Tvill be permitted to resign the presidency of the Northern Pacific Railroad to-dav. Poks was not seen since 1812 till last Friday. Pons then had one tail. Pons now has two. Pons is a comet The New Year's issue of the Ore honian is .a compendium of the prog ress and prosperity of the state for 3884. Bxbxcm," the great show man makes his will covering 700 pages? and disposes of ten million dollars worth of property. It's a little world after all. The beautiful sunsets seen some weeks ago were as gorgeous and notable on India's coral stfand. A Mk. Hat, of Boston, is to, marry a Miss Oats, of (he same city. They will doubtless patronize the horse ears when they take their bridal trip. The London Telegraph expects to witness in a few months the birth of a new nation in the southern seas, to be brought about by the federation of Australian colonies. Portland in '83 sold S53,050,000 wholesale trade, built, including the suburbs, 776 buildings,costing $4,039,- 100, put 347,597.03 on street work, and claims a population of 30,000. There were 9184 business failures in the United States during the year 1883, against 6738 in 1882. Failures last year were greater than those of any other year since 1878. One per son out of every ninety-fonr engaged in business in 1833 failed. When a Leadville man fell in love with a woman and swore that he would kill himself unless she married him, the gentle creature bought a pistol for him. He carried out his promise and shot himself. A Lead ville woman will do -anything for the man who loves her. The Oregonian calls attention to the fact that we of the northwest in 'S3 bought more than twice ;is much as we sold, and argues that unless we can come nearer reversing these facts disaster awaits us. This is man ifest. "We all buy more than we need, and as with individuals so with com munities. The favorable conditions that existed in '83 are not apparent as yet for "84, and a due regard for our interests suggests prudence. The famous clipper ship Young America, which was at Astori:i some time ago, has recently been sold for 315,000 to-Austrian parties, who will use her in carrying oil between New York and Trieste. This vessel was builL over thirty years ago. She gained the reputation of being the fastest clipper ship afloat. She has made several trips between New York and San Fraueisco in less than ninety days. Her fastest trip from San Francisco to Liverpool was made in less than -100 days. She is one of the last of the famous clippers which were built expressly for the San Fran cisco trade. Bibney, Montana, of wliich J. "W. Toohey was made postmaster, is eighty miles from anyplace in which there is a notary, and when it be came necessary for Mr. Toohey to "take the oath of .effiice he swore him self in. In duo4ime his papers were returned witWa letter instructing him to swear before a notary, as there is no precedent for a man swearing before himself. He replied that he knew of no precedent that would entitle him to mileage and expenses to go 100 miles and be sworn, and if his papers were not satisfactory the department might get another man for postmaster. Uespectixg the early postal facili ties in Texas a writer in the Galves ton News says: "The intelligence of the death of President Jackson was brought to Galveston by the master of an Italian brig, whose craft had stopped at the mouth of the Missis sippi and received a New Orleans pa rper containing an account of the death of 'Old Hickory.' Neither the captain nor any of his crew heintr able to read English, the paper was untouchedu'ntil three da-B after fhn arrival of the brig ut' this port, when it was accidentally 'discovered, and the tidings were given to the people ot xexas lourteen days after the president's death." It is alleged in a recent dispatch tjiat "vjllarclis surrendering all his "property in New York. If this be so, a good deal of the harsh things said about this extraordinary man must oe tafcen back.
