The many inquiries being re ceived at the land office at Ore gon City for information in regard to locality and character of public lands m Oregon, bays the ure gonian, warrant the publication of the following) statement, which is furnished by the receiver, Mr. Burney: The Oregon City land district extends to the southern line of township 13 south, to township 8 east, the Columbia river on the north, and the Pacific ocean' on the west. South of this is the Roseburg district, extending to the state line. No vacant lands arc found in the Willamette valley proper, but along the foothills, on either side, and on the western slope of the coast range. In the counties of Clatsop and Columbia, the vacant lands are found back from the Columbia river, from one to five miles. AH lands along the Neha- lem river are entered from half a mile to two miles back. These lands are, or have been, covered with a heavy growth of timber. In some sections forest fires have burned the timber, and only the dead .trees and an undergrowth remains to be cleared away in or der to fit the land for cultivation. These, as all lands in western Ore gon, are well watered, and in many localities may bo found good agri cultural lands. The general de scription of'ditTerent counties in the state contained in circulars is sued by the board of trade, may be accepted as correct descriptions of the public lands." The following is a reasonably accurate estimate of the vacant lands in each of the counties of western Oregen: Connty. Acres. Clatsop 2SO.O00 Columbia 100,000 Washington 40,000 Tillamook COO.000 Yamhill 40,000 Benton 60,000 Polk 50.000 Multnomah 25,000 Clackamas 140,000 jiiarioii zlu,UHJ Linn 440,000 Lane .100,000 Donglas .. 200,000 Coos, 320,000 Josephine , 140,000 Jackson 370,000 Curry 170,000 Intending settlers can obtain in formation as to the status of any reasonable quantity of lands by corresponding with the land office, free of charge, but the business will not permit descriptions of whole townships as the number of demands for such information is unlimited. A directory for west em Oregon and Washington con taining full information in regard to vacant lands and how to pro ceed to acquire title will shortly be issued.

The World to-morrow will contain the follewing: A steamer arrived at this port yesterday, bringing news or a Diooay oattie between Legit ime's and Hippolyte's forces, and a massacre by th'e victors. Cap tain Frazer brought a copy of La JPalrie, the Hippolyte organ, pub lished February 23, at Gonaives, containing the following account of the battle and of the massacre at Grand Saline: The Hippolyte forces in this city were commanded by Generals Mom Point and Jean Meseraus. Legitirae's army began the attack on the ontposts early in February. They were repulsed several times, but finallv succeedod in carrying them, and a few days later were masters ot the city, and General Meseraus' sword. Legitime's men were so elated over their success that they immediately began to pillage the town. Drunke"n sol diers shot one of the prisoners for some trifling matter. This was a signal for a general outbreak on the part of the soldiers. They rushed at the prisoners, shooting and stabbing them right and left, the prisoners begging hard and piteously for mercy, but their cries were laughed at'and the killing went on, quarter being allowed to none. Never before had such a pitable sight been presented. The murdered men lay huddled about in scores. Some were frightfully hacked and mutilated, many of the blood frenzied soldiers having run amuck even among the corpses, plunging the swords again and again into the bodies of the slain. General Mescran tried to stay the' slaughter, but the soldiers laughed at' him and warned him not to interfere if he wished to live. When a lack of victims stayed the butehers they robbed the dead and looted and burned the town. Nearly the whole place says La JPatrie, is in ruins. Cap tain r raser thinks the city must have been burned between Febru ary 23 and March 1. THE FIRST SYMPTOMS OF li:AT!I.

V. Conn, Druggist. The Sea's Secret. Nearly five years ago the steam ship Germania of the Lloyd line departed from Hague, bound for New York. On board were over 1,000 passengers and a highly valuable cargo. The steamship never reached port. No tidings of her were ever heard, and although given up for lost years ago the particulars of her fate were never known. Last Friday afternoon, while walking along the beach of "Has ser's Haven," south of Melbourne, Mr. Frank P. Hassler found a wine bottle lying on the sands. It was almost covered with bar nacles and moss. On picking it up ho found it had been securely corked. The neck of the bottle was broken off and the papers withdrawn. One was a blank bill lading of the steamship Germania, Lloyd line, printed in German. The other paper was simply brown wrapping paper, one side of which was covered with writing in Ger man, the characters being almost illegible. After much trouble the following translation was made: The steamship Germania is on fire and sinking. Gale blowing and all boats swamped. All hope is gone. JOHANN WEIXBEKn, April 17, 1884.
