(Mo.) Weekly Tiibune of April 4, 18-lfl,
publish the following letter from
resident of Oregon City, which through
the courtesy of I, C. Caules of this
city we are permitted to publish:
We have been shown a letter from
lluifh Burns (formerly of this countvl
to Allen M'Lane, Esq., dated March 29t'h.
tend, which came by the Sandwich
isiunus; ine substance of it we give
oeiow, nearly in air. U's own glowing
language, tve regret to be compelled
to abridge it all.
Mr. Burn 'who by the way, can be
relied on) represents the country as
equal to any other for raising small
grain and vegetables ; "should 5000
come here next fall, thev will find
abundance of everything necessary for
their comfort. There is a steady de
mand for produce, and yet plenty to
supply all demands. He thinks it is the
healthiest Dart of the clobe. Durlmr
his residence of two years and a half,
not more than half a dozen have died
outof the white population (numbering
in the fall of 1842. four thousand, in
cluding his company, and. now five thou
sand, according to the census taken un
der an act of the last Oregon Legisla
ture ) The increase in wealth and com
fort has kept pace with the growth of
"The last winter hns been warmer
than the two preceding winters, but
more rain ; no tain the last five weeks,
and during that timii, many thousand
bushels ol wheat and other grain have
been put in the ground. It is astonish
ing to see the large farms that are made
here in a short time; men catne here
last December that will by the first of
Mav, have under cultivation 250 acres
ana this all piouL'tieit with tne oxen
that came from the States last fall-
having nothing to eat hut ilii grass of
the plains, which is rich, strong and
ever green, llie farmers bring freeh
owl to market now (ami have done so
all winter) that is as good as I ever
saw in Upper Missouri in summer, it
is better than any I oversaw any where."
in retereuce to an acco.int unfavor
able to Oregon, snid to have been given
by Hastings (author of a work on Cal
ifornia) Mr. B states that seven familcs
out of nine in Hasting' company re
mained in Oregon, and have done well.
"About sixty of us," he continues,
'stopped here (at the falls of the Willa
inetie) and I do not know one of that
number who is worth Imss than 2500
dollars." Alluding to a former letter
f his own, he sava "I wish every
poor man in the United Suites could see
it, and follow my example." , ,
There are tn mills in active opera
tion, and by next fall. UVe more will be
added ; and aituated in all parts of the
settlement. .; . -.
He recommends future emigrants-to
start in April bring light, strong wagons 1
arawn by mules or oxen, and plenty ol
provisions ten waggons in a company
no generals or captains The waggons
can come as far as the Dalles, then by
water the balance of the way.
Dr. B. 8. Lonit has also shown us a
letter dated January 18th, 1845, from
our old and much esteemed friend,
Peter H . Burnett, from which we make
an extract 1
"Farming, is exceedingly profitable
here. Yon can raise any number of
cattle, horses, sheep, and hogs. Pork
is as good, and as easily grown here as
tn Missouri . Fork Is 110. beef So. cows
sou, norses from S30 to 80; a breeding
tow is worth 120. piirs S5 each. The
first) ear, it is expensive living, but
alter the first you can make your own
ine country is improvtnc rapidly in
Of all the climates in the world this
is certainly the most aureeable no sud
den changes, extremes The coldest
weather we have yet had this winter,
was a hard frost. Turnips, cabbagds
carrots and beets stand out all winter
and never freeze, but continue gracing
an tne time. The prairie now is as
green as a wheat field, and we feed
nothing but our cows and pig-t. '
Tins is beyond dispute the nrst wheat
country in the world, both as to the
nuantitv nml nnulitv nf thn nrlirlH
for the sake ol your olnlilrn es
pecially you ought to come here.
Bring some apple
grafts; cut them oil in the winter, put
them up in a tin box air tight, and then
put that in a woonen box, and they will
come safe. There are no good apples
yet in this country."
