Word came from Knappton yesterday of a dreadful accident that occurred last Tuesday night, resulting in the drown ing of two men and tho serious injury of a third. The particulars are very meagro and the most diligent inquiry yesterday failed to secure any more than tho mer est outlines of tho occurrence. It appears that at eight o'clock last Tuesday evening three men left this cit3 in a fishing boat belonging to n man named Fitzpatrick living at Skamokwa, intending to go to that place. When about half way across the river and about opposite Knappton one of the men who was in the bow of the boat suddenly lurched forward and fell overboard. One of his companions who wa3 in the stern steering made a jump to save his com rade and he too fell overboard. At that moment the boom of the sail came round with such force as to partly overturn the bo?t, the sail fouled and struck the water, the boat capsizing and throwing the re maining manlout. About ten o'clock ho drifted ashore about a mile and a half be low Knappton where bo found assistance and was cared fer: ho was unconscious when picked up, and dreadfully bruised. Not till yesterday morning was ho able to give any account of the affair and ov en then was too exhausted to moro than give the faintest outlines of tho terrible fate that befell his unfortunate compan ions. To add to the difficulty of getting any information about tho matter it ap pears that the man who was saved was u stranger to tho other two men and was simply a passenger. Parties on tho Novelty heard that a man known as "Bos ton Bill" was one of the men drowned. The other man is described as being of medium hight, dressed in black, carry ing a gold watch. Tho name of the man who got ashore is said to bo Frank Ham lin. The boat, battered and stovo in. came ashore yesterday morning below where the man had drifted tho night be fore. Further and more authentic par ticulars are awaited with anxious inter est. COMSIOX COUM'IL I'KOCEEDIMiS. Council met in regular session. A petition was read from property owners amd taxpayers, asking the removal out side tho city limits of a quantity of lacquer stored in buildings on Concomly street; the petition was granted and the chief of police ordered to rcmovo it forthwith.

An Accident Defers the Race. Sakdx Hook, Sept. 8. Tho Puritan and Gcnesta proceeded from tho anchor age to tho starting point at 10:30 o'clock this morning. Tho wind is increasing from tho lighthouse. At 11:30 o'clock the signal was given to the yachts to get ready, and ten minutes later as tho racers rounded up to cross tho iino the Gcnesta was seen to lose her bowsprit. Sho im mediately came about as did tho Puritan when a large hole was discovered in the latter's mainsail. Efforts were mado to rig up a bowsprit, but without avail, and at 12:40 the judges' boat took the Gencsta in tow and returned home. "When the accident happened the yachts were ready to start. The race is declared off for to day. Bucklca's Arnica Salrc. The Best Saivk in tho world for Cuts, Bruises, Sorcs,UIcers, Salt Itheum, Fever Sores. Tetter. Chapnrd Hands. Chilblains.

Dement & Co. teft For Home. Mrs. Fix. formerly Miss Ella lilisct, with her husband left Astoria for Lew iston, Idaho, on the 8th lust, their fu ture home, where he is engaged in mer cantile business. Tho lady was a res ident of Astoria for many years, and enjoyed an enviable reputation for so cial virtues, energy of character and business capacity. Though we have lost ono of our most estimable ladies, we congratulate our sister Territory in having another gem added to her diadem. A. Sally Defalcation. Tho Hon. John Kelly, tho head and front of Tammany Hall, a man of strict integrity, an indefatigable worker, early at his office, late to leave, so burdened with business that regular meals were seldom knownby him, with mind in constant tension and energies steadily trained, finally broke down ! The wonder is that he did not sooner give way. An honest man in all things else, he acted unfairly with his physical resources. He was ever drawing upon this bank without ever depositing a collateral. The account overdrawn, the bank suspends, and both are now in the hands of medical receivers. It is not work that kills men. It is irregularity of habits and mental worry. No man in good health frets at his work. By and by, when the bank of vigor suspends, these men will wonder how it all happened, and they will keep wondering until their dying day, unless, perchance, some candid physician or interested friend will point out to them how by irreg ularity, by excessive mental effort, by constant worry and fret, by plung ing in deeper than they had a right to go, the' have produced that loss of nervous energy which almost in variably expresses itself in a deranged condition of the kidneys and liver, for it is a well-known fact that tho poison which the kidneys and liver should remove from the blood, if left therein, soon knocks the life out of the strongest and most vigorous man or woman. Daily building up of these vital organs by so wonderful and highly reputed a specific as "War ner's Safe Cure, is the only guarantee that our business men can have that their strength will be equal to the labors daily put upon them. Mr. Kelly has nervous dyspepsia, we learn, indicating, as we have said, a break-down of nerve force. His caso should be a warning to others who, pursuing a like course, will cer tainly reach a like result. Sunday Herald. ITTttID SALMON. The London Grocer, under the above heading reports two remarkablo cases re cently prosecuted under tho "Sales of Food Act" by tho polico authorities of the great metropolis. In the first caso tho offending parly was a peddler who admit ted on tho witness stand that he had found some fish in a wasto bin, and sub sequently sold them for fresh salmon. The story was hardly credited by tho magistrate, but tho testimony of witness established tho truth of tho astounding statment. It was developed on tho trial that the fish wero found to be bad, and woro thrown into a waste bin in tho fish stall by a salesman. Soon after, the peddler arrived, and, with tho consent of the salesman, carried tho fish away, and they wero offered for sale at four pence per pound. Tho peddler was fined 5, with tho alternative of a months impris onment with bard labor. It would seem that the salesman had n guilty know ledge of tho intention of the peddler, and he fchould hare been punished with him, aud with equal severity. Tho second caso brought out a story of possibly a moro astonishing character than that told by the peddler. The de fendant was a general dealer. Ho was arrested for offering for salo three hun dred cans of salinoa unfit for human consumption. Tho defendant testified that when he bought tho goods the seller had opened seven or eight cans for him, and they were all sound. Ho had never bought goods in that way before. In an American court of justice, under such an act as the ''Sales of Food Act," the deal er's testimony would have put tho brok er or jobber from whom he purchased, on his defense if ho had been lucky enough to escape arrest at tho timo tho offienso was charged against the dealer. Notwithstanding tho dealer's plea of ig norance he was found guilty as charged, and in its review of the testimony, the court dwelt with great severity upon tho personal responsibility of tho" dealer for tho character of goods ho offers for sale. Tho conduct of the defendant was de scribed as infamous in selling these cans of food, when they were not ht for con sumption, "as they wero all in a fright fully putrid state.' The defendant was sentenced to two months' imprisonment with hard labor, without tho option of a fine. It would bo interesting to learn where the canned salmon was packed and what labels wore upon the cans. New IoUl Cards. The new postal cards aro now in circu lation. They aro prinsed on harder ma terial than some of those formerly in use, and are easy to write on. They aro handsome in appearance, tho printed matter being of a light brown color. Tha warning on the face, which has had various phraseology, as "Put nothing on this pide but the address," and "Nothing but the address can bo placed on this side," becomes in tho new card, "Noth ing but tho address to be on this side." The words "United States" appear on n scroll, and under them the words "Postal card," and a row of thirteen stars is be tween tho two lines. A youthful head of Jefferson appears on tho stamp, partly surrounded by a wreath. There is moro ornamentation than on those formerly in use. So More Hard Times Free Board !

Beferring to tho trade in "counterfeit" money pursued by Tom Davis, tho murdered 6port, report says: A man named Mapes, of Easton, Pa., answered one of Davis' circulars. He brought with him $5,000 in good money. Davis met him at Chatham square and led him to a saloon near tho Bowery. They entered and sawn con federate named Butler sitting at a beer table. Davis called for beer, and while ho whispered to Mapos, looked suspicious ly at Butler. "Gentlemen," the latter said, "I fear that I disturb jou," and left the table. Before he did so he de posited on a shelf underneath, where beer glasses are sometimes held, a well filled envelope, bound with red string. Davis took from an inside pocket an en velope exactly similar, and counted out $20 0 worth of genuine money in hundred-dollar bills. Mapes examined them and said they wero worth $5,000. As soon as he said this Davis, in an absent minded way, called for somo beer. Tho waiter was hnrrying to the table, and Davis glanced at him suspiciously, quickly picked up the money, bound the envelopo with a red string, and dropped the parcel in his lap, at the samo time winking at Mopes. Tho verdant believed that he understood, for as soon as tho waiter was gone, an envelope tied with a red string, was handed to him, and he gave Tom Davis $5,000. Both the men arose and walked out, and the crook But ler walked up to tho table, picked up the $20,000 envelopo and had a drink. Mapes had gone off with a bundlo of blak papers. As a "sawdust" man Davi3 had no equal, and as a bunko-steerer not oven the absent "Hungry Joe" was as adopt as he. About a year ago Davis opened an offico at 2GI Broadway for the sole purpose of bunko-steering. An officer in the society for tho suppression of vice said that bunko-steering, not proving as remunerative as was ex pected, tho offico was turned into a panel house. "Ono of Davis' victims," said tho officer, "was a westerner. Ho wanted to buy $5,0G0 worth of goods, and said to Davis in tho effice: 'I want you to act on tho square, or I'll mako you.' Davis Baid: 'You aro armed?' 'I am' tho visitor said, and showed two Bowio knives in his boots and a brace of revolvers under his coat. Davis told him that if he was found with weap ons on him ho would bo arrested and ev erything would fail. The westerner there fore, surrendered the arms, on condition that they be packed in tho valiso with his money. Davis consented and tho bargain was comploted. Tho panel slid open, and tho heavily guarded westerner went homo minus his money and woap ons. Indeed, it is said that ono of the crooks who went down to seo him safely aboard tho train stole his gold watch and chain." FOREIGN SALMON MARKETS. "The Loudon and Liverpool slocks of canned salmon have been largely ofer e3timated," said a gentlemam who has just returned from England, whoso ex tensive dealings in canned goods qualify him to speak authoritatively of the world's stocks. "I am not prepared to give figures, but tho idea that thero is a stook sufficient for two years' ordinary demands is absurd. Tho markets are in better condition to-day than they havo been for months. Stocks are cleaning up, and in salmon tho market has a much improved tone. During tho season just ended the standard packs navo bad n creat deal to contend against. Fresh salmon has sold at six pence per pound, and other foods nave been relatively as cheap. Inferior goods and cheap canned meaU there having been a largo impor tation cf the latter havo also retarded the salo of salmon. There is always a demand for a first-class article. In all the English markets canned goods are sold on their merits; tho poor stuff never pays tho shipper, but for a time inter feres with tho movement of standard packs. Just now tho demand is falling off there. Grocers aro receiving their dried fruits and holiday stocks, and next month canned goods will bo forced into tho background, but by tho first of next year trado will be resumed again, and dealers anticipate a very firm market. "Tho stock in tho United Kingdom is much lighter than has been estimated. The consumption has been estimated at a thousand aises a dav. Thero is always a stock of at least 100,000 cases, without which tho markets would bo regarded as practically bare. Beforo any of the pres ent season's pack reaches the markets, stocks will havo been reduced to a com paratively small excess of the reserve stock, for everything indicates an active demand at tho opening of next year, and tho present situation promises a general improvement on prices."
