was dedicated. It was crowded as full as it

ill and could not attend, and the sermon
was preached by Rev. C. . Clapp, of Port
land. After the sermon it was announced
that there was a debt of seven hundred dol
lars that they would like to pay. Subscrip
tions were called for, and they got ei;ht
ight hundred and fifty-five dollars.

A stranger arriving among our hills will
stand upon a promontory and look up and
down Sandy river. The "clearings" are so
mall and the interval of fir woods so great,
he concludes there must be plenty of vacant
land. Coming from a more open country
he has yet to learn that something besides a
plowshare is needed to conquer Western Or
egon. The honest immigrant who so long
has wished for a "chance to work" will find
it here. To the lazy land grabber, seated in
bis saddle, the sight of a tree seven feet
thick excites only disgust. He prefers to
see others clearing land than to do it him
self. But braver sinews are slowly develop
ing the wealth that here reposes under the
juda mask of nature. Thus we pondered
Ystenlay your correspondent ealled on
Ur. V. Kabesou at his Harm font miles east
of Meadow Brook pot offlca, fur th pur
pose of gleaning some information on pmn
culture for tlie column of your journal.
Cpoti introducing our business we tound
that veteran horticulturist qait willing to
conduct us through hit promising young
orchard which has just dropped its blot
soma, which are replaced by tlioutaadt irf
plumt, prune, apples, etc. HI trees are
neatly white washed and jnned. Ocv
tiondly we wonld e a tree bearing n it
branhsas many different tarieties f it
kind. In anwertnaquMla, Mr. RohFson
aid h coniared that in n way nuM
wna owner rata larger rtnrn tnau m
planting to prunes, the Italian variety be
ing in all respects preferable. U said.
there are two methods of starting a prune
orchard. In th lint plac. If yaur land it
cleared and in cultivation, by all meant
buy young trees, two year old growth
from a reliable nursery. They will cost lis
per hundred. In two years your orchard
will begin bearing.
We askiit wl.at would bethe most eco
nomical yet surest method of establishing a
prune orchard ou a lucrative ba-iis by an
energetic man with but little ready rash?
The reply was, if some of those fellows that
are daily arriving here from the Fast, and
looking for desirable locations wherewith to
build up a prosperous home and earn a
good living, and best of all I their own
masters, and were "heeled" with four or live
hundred dollars, they could do no better
than turn hither their fontste- s. They
would not find aland tloaiug with milk and
honey, or line farms stocked anil seeded to
take up as homesteads, as many expect to
find, and not finding return forthwith to
thelandof grasshopers and cyclones, dis
gusted with the Hint-hearted (?) West. But
tliey would find splendid land easily cleared,
that may be purchased from seven to ten
dollars er acre on easy installments; ami
my advice would be if they intended tn-ag-ing
in horticulture to limit their purchase
to lorty acre, for th lest land one owns
the better cultivation will it have. The first
half acre the purchaser plow let him plant
in peach pits, which may be obtained in al
most any quantity at canneries. Ifbyth
end of two years he has twenty acres cleared
and plowed he would be ready to transplant
early in the spring about four thousand five
hundred young peach trees from hit ama
teur nursery. In August or September, or
as soon as the bark will -lip, bad each peach
just above the earth with the Italian prune.
The following February cut off the entire
peach tree just above the bud, and in two
yean you have a hardy bearing prune orch
ard that in two mere years will yield a larger
net revenue annually than several hundred
acres of grain.
We further learned, that for the first two
years crops of corn, potatoes, or other pro
duce may be raised betwri-n rows; but it is
not prudent to tax the ground with other
crops after the second year.
The opinion of many horticulturists after
years of eierienee is, that the best results
are obtained by planted prune trees ten feet
apart each way, and pruning the lower
branches off, thus growing fine tall trees.
and shading the ground beneath. The
ground should be well cultivated annually,
Mr. Robeson i-ave us a practical illustra-
tion of the various methods of grafting and
budding, both ancient and modern, but
which we will not enter into in this paper.
After thanking the gentleman for his
courtesy we continued on our way to the
Mnntainilale school house, and listened with
interest to a discourse by Key. J. H. Har-
greaves, on "One Lord, one Faith, slid one
Baptism;" thence down to Bethel, where, at
4 P. M.he preached a forcible sermon from
the 18th chapter of 1st Kings.
We learn that a son of Mr. Howard is ly
ing very low with what U supposed to be
la grippe, and that one of Mr. Holman's
children is also quite ill.
We understand that on Raturlay, while
John Scott was engaged in breaking a horse
the animal backed into an open well which
was large and over forty feet deep, with only
about three or four feet of water. By means
of pulleys, and an abundance of skill and
trouble, the horse was finally rescued.
