A meeting was hell in Omaha last Saturday evening to consider the ques tion of enforcing the law prohibiting the sale of liquor on Sunday. From the re port of the meeting in the Republican, we judge that the roughs were somewhat numerous, and that they really controled the meeting. Several speakers were prevented from talking, and a general 'bubiib" Seems to have endued. Messrs. It. B. Windham and Henry Thomas, of this city, left to-day for Ne braska City to attend therenditionof the Oratorio of Esther, which takes place this evening and to-morrow evening, by the snipers of that city under direction of the celebrated Baker Famil3. Mr. Windham will proceed farther dpwn the river to the vicinity of St. Jo?eph, on business. President Grant has postponed his vist to Plattsmouth and the Pc:Sc tou.-t un til the B. & M. in Nebraska is completed to a junction with the U. I. at Kearney. The Treasurer of Dodge county has advertised the lands of the U. P. R. It. Co. for sale for delinquent taxes.

We l-dieve this is the rt time n complete list of the bidders, with pricis and c n tracts, has ever been published in the State. The fellow who is supposed to have t-tohn Commissioner Albin's horses came into that neighborhood and fctaid over night, and made bis exit again while Mr. IV.vin was cut getting a warrant for his arrest. His name is McAlister. P. T. Beaver & Sons have a saw mill on the north side of the Platte river one nine atove its mouth, where they keep on hand, and eaw to order, all kinds of coCtonwood lumber. Mr. Wm. AltaiFer informs us that he has already sold over IOoO bushels of his fall wheat for seed. The tanners of Ne braska are becoming uioch disposed to raise winter wheat. Nearly every issue of the Omaha Herald contains soir.e slander against Senator Tipton, to theeffect that be will take the stuwp against the next Repub ican nominee for President, and ether equally ridiculous and slanderous things. Senator Tipton bhould silence the Her ald by a flat denial of these oft repeated assertions. It is expected that the Trunk road will fee completed to Plattsmouth at an early day. the K. a St. Joe & C. B. road will lay their track in to the river opposite this city, aad the B. & M. branch of the Pacific road be completed to Kearney. Then look out for lively times in l'latts niouth. The man who wants to make a "pile of money"' should invent in Platts mouth property prior to that time. J. R.

J White is busy fjtllaz streets and bridges in r pair. OiLiOA, July 21 1 1 71. Dear Herald : From the "busy cares" I snatch a moment, which 1 im prove in informing you of the refolt of a legal investigation in the U. S. Court at Omaha (the SODOM of America Dr. Miller Grand Ruler). For two years past the Land Commissioner of the B. & M. R. U. in Nebraska baa been thundering the anathemas of the law over the heads of a few poor, hardy, honest, energetic frontiersmen for their "willful and defiant depredations on R. R. timber lands." It appears that the general government has for years past offered great inducements to immi gration, also the State. In addition to this the B. & M. Agents have sent broad cast all over the civilized world circulars, pamphlets Sec. , advertising "this rich and productive country " By these thousands have been induced to emi grate to our State. In the history of the world, no country Iris ever been kmin to settle with such rapidity as Nebraska, the past two years. Many of theie emigrants are poor. They come h re and took hometoads, and with de termined energy began improving their farms. In order to make a covering for the"r wives and helpless children, from the driving storms and wintry blasts, they tresp:i--od upon public lands, by cutting a few poles, links and brush , also by getting a little wood with which to warm their benumbed fingers and to cook their scarry food. A,saint these poor settlers the B. & M. in Nebraska instituted a suit, not in their own name, in the St;ite courts, (fearing public opin ion and courts if mt successful), but by reporting parties f up posed to be guilty (?) and giving names of witnesses to the U. S. Commissioners. The Grand Jury in May last fan:. i seven indictments against these settlers--"Ahaz" included. The wealthy and energetic B. fe M. in Ne braska refused to give their witnesses a free pass over their r?ad in Nebraska to th eourt fit AViViHiv. The case of the U. S. v. Hampton was the first called. Witness on the stand. Have you ever seen Mr. Hamp ton cut and take timber from section nine, town eight, range three west? Yes. sir. Is this section government lasid? No, Sir it is the property cf one John Selivan, who has nearly two hundred acres under cultivation; it is included in the grant made by the gene ral government to the B. & M. It. R. in Nebraska. Are all the sections men tioned in tha seven indictment" included in the snme crant? Yes Sir. Here Jud.zc Dundy ruled the sri-cn precious papers on: of court for waut of juridic tion, and we chaps put for home with the "goose hanging high." The B. & M. in Nebraska get about $75.00 for fare out of us 'poor devils, which -is the last thev ever will get while horses can be bought for i? liOO.(K) and R. R.'s within 100 miles. 4 So mote it be." Yours in haste, AlIAZ. Accompanying the above letter was a note which says : "People in this region believe you are with the B. & M-, and will not print the article."' As to the fir?t part of the sentence, "the people" are correct we are "with the B. M." so far as the B. & M. is right and is of general gocd ; but to the second propo sition, the people of that region or of any other, have no reason to suppose that the IIekald is not open to the jitst criticisms of any corporation or any persons. We know nothing of the mat ters raentionrd in the above commun e i tion never heard of them before but judging fiom the tone of the U tter itself we conclude that our friend "Ahaz" is a little bit "riled," and probably allows his passion to get a little the better of his judgment. He evidently does so when he intimates that the people of that region would ride a hundred miles to reach conic ether road before they would Tide on the R. & M. We leave it to the better judgment cf cur friend if that docs net sound like, "child's play." Suppose some individual in the employ of the B. & M. has committed a wrong against the settlors. It seems to us that the carrying out of the above threat! like a small boy rt-fu.-in.-r to eut his sup per because he had r. Gt of the "dumps." Om-orrf-spondcnt is a man of too much sense and gocd judgment to have allowed a thing of this kind to appear in print had it not been written without due con sideration ; and we are tempted to "not publish it" on his account, for we have much respect for him, but fear our mo tives might be misinterpreted. Our friend does not show, in bis letter, even that any employee of the company has committed a wrong he only indi cates that some one connected with the road has complained to the district at torney that timber was beina; taken un lawfully, which he admits He t'onot stale who this was, and perhaps he may be mistaken in t4c man. One thing our correspondent does admit aud we are pleas-ed'to see his ordinary sense of jus tice appear in that clause and that is that the B. & M. company are doing much to advertise the State and brine TsiJtlers. We should have published the letter of our friend without com ment had he not indicated a doubt of our doing so on the supposition that we were friends to the B. & M Co. We define to disabuse his mind, as well as the minds of all others who may be laboring under a similar mistake The IIk.rai.K never allows its friendships to interfere with its sense of justice, cot even to favor the B. & M or .ts very much esteemed frieud "Ahaz.

PXATTSMOUTn HeraLD Many of your readers having wished me to write, giving them a description ot our jour- ney and tnis locality, l tnnugnt it best to make short work of it using your pa per (with your approval) as the circulat ing meuium. The ground between Omaha and the Rocky Mountains has often been jrone over throu.ah your columns, and I wiU not detain your readers long over an old story; but would say thai the agricul tural part might be said to extend from the Missouri river perhaps back 150 to 200 miles, the greuter objection being lack of wood and water; and from this point to fifty tuib; wet of North Platte, good grazing country. I was told by nn old Texan stork raiser who had much experience in this country and was driv ing a drove through-fioni Texas to some point 12(H) miles north of the U. P. that his cattle bad gained in fl ish with hard driving since reaching Nebraska. If this bo true," this j art of tbe StHte wi'l be no les;s valuable than thi eastern por ion. We then passed over i de-olate and poor lookintr emmtry which I po nounce a failure having no vegetation of any di-oriptbiii for uiilos, or anything that would K ok likesustaining life. We are now, perhnps, 350 miles from Oma ha. The towns that wc au pas. in g through consist generally of about two or three houses, those being section houses, etc., bclnnsinz to tbe railr. a l. , flvcy train is supplied with firearms for passengers to protect themselves in ca-e of emergency. We pa-s through thi barren and lifeless country for about IUI miles; wc thou strike a tolerable good grazing country; one peculiar feature of the grass is that it wilt burn any tune of year when not covered with snow or dampness. Cheyenne lii? hih and dry out on the op.en prairie, there bc:.nz but lirtle ;iin bcr within siht, an-J like mott of the plain towns has little cr nothing to sup port a city. Passing Clicytii'ic lifrc n miles we co:;:e to barren rocks ; scarce any sign of vegetation presents itself, which continues until reaching Laramie plains, which are from 0000 to 80O0 feet above the sea. Here we found the need of overcoats when stepping ot t f th car, being quite a change, as it was some thing over a hundred in the shade in Omaha the day we left, only a few hours before. Snow storms are not un common, I am told, during the summer months, or any month during the year. The scenery from Chcye ino to Laramie is grand. Laramie plains extend, 1 should judge, fifty miles, and is a hand somer looking country. At Carbon sre to be seen the smoking coal mines which have been buiniir.' since last fall; splendid coal is obtained. From here we pass through hundreds of miles of wort bless country I think the U. P. wi 1 hardly get rich out of their Lvnd Grant, through this section ; there is neither grass, wood nor water nothing but sage brush and prickly peats ; but as we near O-den 'he cor.nriy grows more interesting being rough an 1 moun taiuoas The toad passes tli.ough some abrupt and dangerous looking places: perhaps yi u look out on one s:de of ihe car and be! ol 1 mountains reaching to a great height, on the other side you wi l look down into some deep abyss, hun dreds o'' feet. The trains run very fast down grade, which is all the way from Bryan for 140 miles. Some of the w.ij the grades are very heavy on this sec tion. The sccneiy, most of the way, is of the most romantic character, excell ing that of the Hudson in that; re-pect, but not in beauty. We will leave them in ail their grandeur and pavs on to Og den ; and what do we find here, the ter minus of the U- P. ? an old looking town cf very little impoitaur-e. com prised about 3,thK, mostly mormons. Ile;tj The town is const meted of sU!l-drie'tTV.r!, brick, principally, and is over twenty years of sign, but 1 should judge from the appeal mice of things h:vi novei been mutli of a town for lii-ine--. Still we arc in range of Chicag a!th:i igh over X '-U miles l.oiii there, and oul. about fcUO miles from San I'Vanciseo. Pretty miuii til purcha-es are made in Chiengn. There are many shade tive. here. which, with the running wafer in all the principal streets ate the only en ticing features J hat Ogden would h::ve far nie. There is no building goin on here, although it is the teru;it.us of th:ee railroads. Next comvs an observation of the Great Sail Like Valley, which I must c tnfe.-s I was more disappointed in than I ever was in any locality. This ha-; a! ways been upheld as one of the i c'lest and most productive po:tions of the United States, producing o.'tt'n 00 bush els of wheat per acre. The wheat when I left 1'iattsu.outh was about three f'et high, some higher; here I found it S to 10 inches and very sickly looking at that Grass on the oj en praire grows in small bunches, instead of the large, luxuriant growth I expected to see. The largest corn 1 .-aw was not over 1:2 inches and much that did not look to have been out of the ground more tlai two weeks. Such is the (jreat Salr Lake Valley as seen along theW. N and C. 1. Railroads. Afcxi leaving Ogden fifty miles, we come again to that tedi ous and mountainous, t-andy waste, only still worse, being even destitute of save brush traveling miles through a conn try as naked as any road you can find .n your county, ueilher do we find anything much better until reaching Tiui.kee, in the edge of the Nevada mountains. Never did timber look so delightful. After several days of nothing but harren desolate scenery, then to behold the mighty pines of the Nevadas was cer tainly a pleasant and agreeable sight. From here commences the snow sheds, Which are the mot aggravating thing of tha whole journey, as one is passing through the most delightful scenery of the wlnle trip ?nd can get ouly occasiou al elimpses. . The sheds here are 40 miles in length; at about the summit of the mountaim is to bo seen Douuer Lake, located in a basin, many hundred, and I might safely say thousands, of feet below. There is a beach road all the way around t?; lake which luu-t be a uio-t beauriful flive. 'Many people from Sacramento n, San rrancisco spend their summer- Imr i, aitd a plaeaut place should think Jt would be, as the air is i o--feetly delightful be.- intr pure and bracing. As w descend the mountains we come in si old gold regions of Calif rn 1,1 .,' ti.u luany,' many are the acres that ruY. Ipetn torn up in pursuit of the precious TJust. As we pass down towaid- Oobax we are fly ing past orchards and meadows of the finest appearance, peach trees are loaded, also fruit trees of all varieties. From Colfax we soon reach the ereat Sacramento valley, which is a most beau- I 1 1 1 til section of country, being perfectly level and covered with scattering trees looking at a distance tike an old mam moth orchard. From Sacramento to San Francisco 1 saw nothing worthy of note As we near Fri-c-i the air grow damp and cool, as i- always is in San Francis co the peculiar feature of the plaeo. And let ne here correct an erroneous idea in legard to the climate of Califor nia. It is generally und rtood that it is cool in summer and warm in winter ; this is true in some localities, such as are surrounded nrettv much by water. In . the valleys, back from the sea, it is warm J in tbe winter and excessively b,:tin enn uer sometimes running as high as a hundred and thirty. On the mountains it is cool in summer and cold with much tnew in winter. While you may see furs and overcoats worn in San Fiancisco, at Sacramento, ; little over a bun .red miles distant, neo- i pie may be wearing linen coats, straw hats, and panting lor a cool breath of air, with the mercury at II- in the fchade. I cannot say that I like the cli mate of San Fiancisco. The sun will ehine quite warm in the morning ; about ten o'clock a pale will spring up f orm the north-west, chilii g one like a December wind ; this occurs every day without ex ception, I am told. It is always foggy in the morning, sometimes thick enough to obscure the sight of the sun. Now, as to the towns one pa.vcs through; there is little or no improvement going on in any of them. Corrine is growing some, but a cheap class of bu I lings looking to be only transient affairs. This is the outfitting point for Idaho and Montanu ; but as noon as the Northern Pacific is completed their trade in this directiou is at a close. I think Ogden is the largest point, of which I have given you a descript:on. The towns, as a.gen eral thing, are of little or npimpoitanee. Saciaimuto i.- a handsome place, of about fifty thousand ; San Fiauciseo something over one hundred thousand, and-the dullest city of its s zu I ever saw. There is bloek after block of h-. finest architecture ami tini h without .m occu pant, trancing theie for rent. The I'a cifio railroad lias been the cause of their death, as Chicago has established tra le with towns, even within one hundred iuih:s of them, selling goo 1 as cheap as the San Francisco mere ants can afford. Chicago. like the big fish, secins dispos ed to cat up all the smaller ones. 1 am told by oiu of the merchants in thisc ty that iv'Ctits ii tier to land goods on the dock fit. in Chicago ju-t as cheap as he can buy them in San Fianci-co. It is a city vhat has no end to its aspirations. e wvre i:i San Francisco the 4'h, and a great time they had ; bui the best that 1 saw was t lie t-xhibition of the 4'J-ers. I hey had a banner maiked "the golden rimes of forty-niiu" an I a rocgh look ing class they were. These men have pretty iuui.h all seen the day that they possessed wealth, but the majority area poor people now, hiving tquaudered their money in gamlliug and riotous Ling. Fare from Omaha has three grades; first 100 ; second, $75 ; and third class $50. .Meals on the road are 75 rents to $1. We had partly uncugh lunch v. i;h us, and I would advise all coming across the continent from Omaha to try and bring enough to last them through, or they may stand a chance to pay a bir price, and many -times get only a mode rac recompense for their money. Leaving the busy scenes of the un fortunate Frisco, I would invite you to follow us through our journey on- the briny deep As we passed the golden gate it was calui and pleasant ; but upon reaching the point of land extending into the sea north of the gate, wc found a gale blowing from the norihwe.it which soon caused a part of our party to feel. I suppose, as the whale did who swallowed Jonah. TI12 next morning it was blowing a perfect tempest, and I found to my great s lrprise tliat it was inclined to be iiioun'ainou- between Sin Francisco aud Portland. This blow con-t-nned until the morning we entered' tbe Columbia river Nearly eviry oiit on board was sta-sii-k. even somo of th old sailors. I have heard of the grand eur of being on a ioudi s-a out of siaht lani. and I must acknowledge my incapacity of enjoying the scene. Never had it been my lot to experience, a more dieary and desolate looking si ht than to be tossed about as we were for a whole day, out of sight of land with nothing but whi.ecapsto lie seen as fur as The eye cou'd reach, while we were run ning up one hill and do'ru another U o saw on-, whale, on? shark, seal after and sea lions, in great numbers. also saw one bi-icfc tjsh. lhc wlialo I should judge wa- about twenty feet long. He w:is. having in the water, an 1 at one time j iimpe'd two-thirds of his hegih out of tlie water. This was ouite a s:ght for a prairie lad. The shark v. bout ten feet long, looked to be of a greenish color ; bis no-e m-med to be the largest part of him, and his eyes in the end of ic. Ttie sea lion i.s a curious Tiiiitnal. At a rocky island, ncir the mouth of the Columbia, we "saw, I should juduo, f.vi bundled of them ly ing out .'n the shore sunning t heiiis. Ives. As soon us. we were within MiSieicnt dis tance w rotiil hear tluui roar, which was not unlike that oi'a lion du-nce orig inates their mime. As we came nearer they ooni'oC'iiced jumping i t; to ttiv water, and bcfoie v.e were opposite the island ail that were in sight had reached the flater, pre-cnting a curious spe-tac!e as they all kept their heals out of the water, and still kept up their roaring A few ii'Mirs from here we find ourseivis with n the banks ot the happy Colum bia. I cannot say as nrt.h about the scenery of this river m I would iike. the ditance bi ing made mostly in the niht Astoria is the port, of entry ; is an 1 1 1 looking place, with about i,L'(j(j inhabi tants. Soon after ou enter the Colum bia river you can behold Mount Hood, di-tant nearly one hundred and lif'y miles, showing that winter s;id holds it. grasp, as it is perpetually covered with snow. The morning of July 11 at 5 o'clock-finds us at last at our journey's end. Our trip, having been through 300 miles of good agricultural country, 150 miles 11 Nebraska, 1 50 in California, perhaps I have made the allowance too sunill in California but not much I think. The rest of our way'was through desert, pineries ami water. Never r.ad I an idea, until within the past few weeks, that the western part of this con tinent was composed of almost one com plete desert, as it certainly is, and it i my humble opinion that the day is not far distant when one can sing ''110 more laud has Uncle Sam to tive us all a h'-mcj" in fact the most desirable lands are already sought out. Now, as to Portland, I can say by it like this : that it is a very busy and en terprisinjr town, growing beyond all de scription has about ten thousand in habitants, and is a handsome dace, lay ing in the valley, the mountains coming up to the city's border on the west, but are several miles from the river on the east. The town is principally built on the west side. There are from ninety to one hundred buildings under course of construction, at present ; some ten business blo-ks, some of them very fine, iron fronts, aLo some of the dwellings are very nice, costing, in some cases, twenty-five thousand dollars. The blocks are composed mostly of brick; the dwellings, without exception, are ef wood. There are less poor buildings here than in any other town that I have ever visited of tbe same size. They are a very wealthy class of people, but are uajjfchowy, except in buildings and fine ground. The town is nicely ornament ed with shade trees, being mostly maple. The country is naturally covered with evergreens; they are all cut down and maple," ash and elm put in their places. S arce apy evergreens are to be found in the towrj,. Yard trees are mostly fruit trees, aud I will here mention that I have lived in Michigan- Rochester, and ether; fruit district?, hut thU coes ahead of anything for fruit that I have ever Been. Trees that were set out last fall some of them are found loaded now ; and this I am told is a common occur rence, .Trees can be bought here at twenty-five cents apiece ; set them out in the fall say fifty trees the next sea son 3ou will have considerable fruit, and the second season you will get all that a moderate sized family would want- Trees bear every year. This is not a common thing in most other countries. Pears do splendidly here, in fact every kind of fruit raised in the temperate zones with the exception of Peaches, (they will grow here to some little ex tent but. do not have the sweet, fine fla vor that they obtain in California). Ap ples and cherries are better here than in California I call this apple paradise, as they seem to reach nearer a state of perfection than in any other place I ever have been ; and cherries, the fine.-t the world can produce. All kinds of small fiuits do exceedingly well here, such as currants, blackberries raspberries cct. Blackberries grow wild in great profu sion. Tbe lay of the land about Port land is neither handsome or pictuesque is covered with a heavy growth of cedar und fir, which is used for budding pur poes After g'dng out souie eight or ten miles you strike a good farming country. The ..rairies are of a limited character. You will not find the un bounded extent as in Nebraska. East of the Cascade mountains you find boundless prairies. This is supposed to be a healthier portion of the State; but they have more winter, more snow ; but there is not as luuth of a rai'iy season ; water ana timber arc scarce. Now as to the commercial advantages Portland has (which are its only depend ence for making a large city). It is tbe centre of tonimeice for tiie whole north west. The wholesaling far tbe entire State is mostly done here, as emigration to O.agon strikes this point first- Tick ets are always gold to Portland fiom San Fianci-co. There are some 15 whole sale houses here, where no retailing is done, which speaks well for thd locality, as there are no more in Rochester, New York, a city of some sixty Sve thous and. The North Pacific Company have thirty-seven steamboats, the Columbia Navigation Cotupany about the same, besides foreign trade, making over 80 vessels and steamers that make this point their head centre. One railroad completed one hundred miles south, two more graded, oue north toward Pu get sound, (ihe great humbug), these two they are at work on the other running southwest. The branch from tha North Pacific down the Columbia, al.-o a branch from the M. P. leaving' Evenston com ing up Snake river and terminating at this point. Operations have not been commenced on the latter two roads, mak ing this the terminus of live railroads. Enough has been sakl, I think, in re gard to the loca ity of this point. Now, in icgard to the climate, I can say some things in praise and some that will bo of no credit; although I think j-ou have bad the dark side ot Oregon presented O you in former letters, still it is my dc sire to give my friends both sides of the picture as nearly as my juJgcment wih permit, bosh the advantages and di.-td vantages. The rainy season u ually, I urn told, sets in about the middle to the la -t of November, sometimes setting in the fii tt ai.d sometimes not untii the last of December, but these are exceptional ca.-es. It usually discontinues from the middle'ol" April to tlie middle of May this season wa an exception, lasting un til sometime in dune. During this time theie i i 110 snow to speak of, but plenty of mud. livery country has its draw backs, an i thegriat amount of rain is thj disagreeable pait here. It djs not tain all ihe time in the rainy season, as theie WlJl leat times, perhaps two Weeks, with nice suiishining weather; but I un derstaiid this is not usually the case. I am told that there has been times in the rainy sea-on that there would be three months that the sun would not shine out blight. Every one speaks of the rainy season being so Unagreeable, aud I think it must be. Any one com ing must make this allowance and prepare for the worst. To bal'auce this we have the most beau iful summers, cool, refreshing nights, and a cool breeze during the day from tbe north-west. There is no wind at any season of the year, but a gentle breeza every day. That is one fl.u!t I find with Nebraska ; if the wind did not blow a perfect bur ricane from the south in summer, there was not a breath of air, it seemed, to be got, and the air was accompanied by a hot, buffocating feeling, one that would cau.-e a per.-on to feel more dead than alive. Such is not tbe case here. The hottest day that there has been here since I arrived was 75 in the sl.ale ; then about 4 o'elock the air began to cool off aud the niuht was comfortable for sleep. The hottest weather ever known here was 98 in the shade, and that is referred to as the hot season. The idea that there is no rain here in the summer is not correct, as there has been two lit tie showers within the-past few days. There is no lightning, no sudden changes from oue year's end to another. The summers are all that heart could desire ; it is not a billious country, which people show by their complexion as they are much lighter than in yoar State. I con sider this a very healthy country, judg ing from what I have seen. I have seen one man that has had the ague. There was a good cau.-e for that, as he worked in the water mining for three years, and is now raying for his gold The air is very clear. A person cannot judge in the Iea-;t of distances by observation ; many who have just come think of walk ing to Mount Hood, which is CO miles, and one would be assured by appearance that it was not more than ten. This mountain lias a bad habitof smoking oc casioually. It is covered with eniw the year round, presents a picturesque ap pearance, an J is visible from almost any part of this country. Mount et. Helleu, to the northward, presents another ?now ' ttad brad. di. taut 73 mil-?. Prices range like this : wheat, $1 25 ; oats, 60c ; corn is not raised ; eggs, 40c ; butter, 35c can be contracted by the year at 30c ; cattle and 1 ork about the same ot with you. A fortune lays silently wailing for some live Yankee to come in here and start the dairy business. Vegetables are quite high, such as 21 cents for a head of cabbage of medium size ; fruit is cheap here in the fall ap ples, any amount, at 25 to 30e per bushe ; pears, 40 to 50c ; apples on the tree pick them yourself 15c ; potatoes 25o ; cherries, 5e per pound. Farmers in this country are a 1 ty, in dolent set. There is very little winter here to prepare for. Cattle are often not stall fed durimr the winter, conse quently they can live without much ex ertion. Wherever you find this the case people will grow slothful and lazy, also the first settlers of any country are apt to be a shiftless set, caring more for hunt ing than their farms ; but as thecountrj settles up this class eek other and newer localities ; already they are selling out and emigrating to the mountains east. There ara splendid chances for farming here; the grain brings a good price ; it is shipped direct to Liverpool. Wheat produces fiom 20 to 50 bushels per acre 20 bushels being considered a poor yield- The crop has never failed you are as sure of a good recompense as you are that you put in your prain. No hail or heavy rain storms come to tinnoy or ruin tbe sturdy farmer ; he does not go to bed at night with tha anxiety on bis mind that, perhaps during the night a heavy storm may come up laying waste the fiuits of his bard d;y's work that may happen to have bean left exposed to the elements. Another thing to bis ad vantage is that he is not working under the heat of a scalding sun, but cool and pleasant. Tume grasses, such as clover and timothy, do exceedingly well. Land is quite high in some Iocali ies, ranging as high as 40 dollars per acres ; still there is plenty to be got much cheaper. Me chanical wages in Portland are good. Carpenters get from 4 00 to J4.50 per daj , painiers about the same, plasterers and bricklayers $5.00 to $G 00 the lat ter getting the highest other mechau ies get about in proportion, common la borers get from two to 3.50, hod carriers getting tbe highefef. Common hands on brick yards get 40 dollars per month with board, moulder $80 with board; nothing but coin in circulation here cr any where west of Utah ; there are no five cent pieces; anything that is not worth 10 cents is not worth having, and in making change if you can come within five cents it is thought to be near enough; but that will change as the country gets older. Tea and coffee are much cheaper here than with you; cof fee 5 lbs for one dollar, a good article ; be.-t tea $1.00 per lb, suar from 5 t 1 lib-for $1. Taking everything com bined living I think is cheaper here than in Nebraska and a much greater variety to choose from. Hoard is five dollars at boarding houses, six at hotels. Times are good, and money plenty. House rent, house 16x24, story and a half, 20 dollars per month. City prop erry is very high: residence 1 its from $250 to $1,50;). The cot of building is about tbe sai e as in Plattsmouth. Some kinds of lumber arc as high as with you, such as siding flooring and finishing ; common lumber and fiaming $12.0!). The low prlcj in lumber here is made up in prices of mcchauleal work, so the cost would be about the same of building here as in Nebraska. I can think of no more that would be of interest to cry of your readers, so I will c!oe wishing ti convey the idea that Oregon is not so bad a State to come to, after all ; and Por:I md not sn bad a town, as there is employment for evciy one and at a goo f, fair recompense. I shall make a trip to Puget Sound soon, and then you shad hear from rue again : iu the meantime don't think Puget Sound too big a humbug, lest you be humbugged yourself, as its locality is at tracing the attention of some of the best b jsines- men on the coast. Yours truly, IIkn-rv DeGahmo. J. II. Buttery has a fine assortmet.t of Carbolic Sojips, embracing bath, toi let and different kinds of medicated soap. This soap is justly popular, being the best kn)wn for the skin, effectually! curing nearly all kinds of skin diseases. Rusiness has been improving for the past two weeks. , Remember the great Sale cf Lots by S. Duke, on the 4th of September. NritKET 1KKA 11 Rev. G. J.
