The Northern Pacific Railroad Com-
pany intend to commence work on their
road Immediately, according to the asser
tion of the Detroit Post. The same pa
per says it is enabled to state, upon good
authority, that Messrs. J. Cooke, J.
Edgar Thompson and Thomas Scott,
proprietors of the Mississippi and Lake
Superior (better known as the St. Paul
and Lako Superior) Railroad, recently
had a protracted conference with the
President, W. L. Banning, the result of
which is instructions have been iven to
push forward the construction of the
Northern Pacific Railway, and that in
compliance with these instructions the
work will be commenced as soon as the
spring opens. It is estimated that $10,
000,000 will be required to put the road
through to the Red river of the north
nd to obtain this amount the stock will
bo divided into 200 shares, or such num
ber as will enlist it. This much of the
work accomplished, they will then confi
dently appeal to the Government for aid
to carry the road beyond the Rocky
Mountains. The work will be commenced
at the head of Lake Superior, in accord
ance with the terms of the charter. The
gentlemen who have determined to take
the initiative step in this great enterprise
are not the men to rush blindly into so
great a work, nor are" they the men to
fail in any undertaking. . They have
made themselves thoroughly acquainted
with the character of the country on the
line of this great thoroughfare, and are
fully satisfied with the prospects. Of
the character of the country tho Post
The line extends through one of the
most wonderful regions in the world. Its
. fertile soil, vast mineral wealth, beautiful
. climate, and the character 6f the termini,
all tend to prove unmistably that the
route is one that has been marked out by
nature herself. In the first place it is
several hundred miles shorter from lake
to ocean than, the Central Pacific. It
encounters no mountain passes over 5,000
' feet in height, while on the other route
there are no fewer than eight or . nine
passes of over , 7,000 feet, ; Instead of
running, like the Central Pacific, through
long stretches of barren country, which
can furnish no traffic to a road, there is
no section through which it passes which
.is not remarkable either for the fertility
of .its soil or ks mineral wealth. Its ad
vantages with regard to climate influences
are still more remarkable. From the
Red river Taller to the Pacific, its course
lies wholly within the isothermal region.

Editor Register: v, .
Your correspondent having taken an
excursion into the southern and eastern
parts of Marion county, for the purpose
of inspecting the crops, stock, etc., passed
into your county, and remained a couple
of days in Albany Prairie. Hia obser
vations and suggestions, if of any account,
are at your disposal for publication.
From Washington Butte, the natural
and magnificent "observatory" of Linn
county, a person can look down on a most
beautiful and charming panorama, spread
out before him in all the beauty of land
scape and hill and dale scenery. At this
time of the year, Flora is lavish of her
gifts, and a carpet of green is spread out;
and the vast fields of graiu waive in view,
and the fKcks and herds feast on the
luxuriant grasses. Albany Prairie is
doubtless the finest district in the Wil
lamettc Valley for general farming pur
poses. It must contain not less than
three hundred square miles of rich arable
land. Much of this land is rather level
for successful cultivation in its present
condition, but I observe that all of it can
be successfully drained ; and when drain
ed is the very best tillable land. Under
ground drains can be made cheaply, but
of great benefit, in the following manner :
Plow a land some ten feet wide the whole
length of tho slough or swail, and throw
out the middle a3 deeply as possible with
the plow. Then use tho shovel and slant
the sides down to the depth of from two
to four feet. Then place split sticks of
the size of large fence rails, two side by
side and one on top. Then upon these
place straw or old mats of hay and weeds
Upon the whole of these fill in the dirt,
and make the surface a . level one. The
land can be plowed and harrowed over
this without interruption. The supera
bundant water will collect in this ditch
and run off, and the surrounding land
will become dry, mellow and very pro
ductive. These swails, thus prepared,
are superior for timothy meadows, as
well as for wheat, oats, peas, etc. The
lack of timber can be remedied effectual
ly, so far as fencing is concerned, by
osage orange hedges. There have been
strong doubts entertained hereabouts by
many as to the success of the osage
orange for hedges in thi3 valley. I saw
a hedge on the farm of Mr. Joel Huston
12 miles southeast of Albany, in 1863
and again at this time. He obtained one
bushel of seed from Illinois about 1
years ago, and planted a portion of it in
a nursery, and transplanted the scions in
lines where they were to crow. His
health was poor all the time, and he did
not fully understand the proper mode of
cultivating or trimming it. But wherever
the plants were headed back the hedge is
a perfect barrier to all stock. It is mak
ing a very vigorous growth of undertwigs
this yetirj and the larger plants, not cut
down or pruned for the hedge, are now
bearing "apples," as they are called.
There will be this year several bushels of
the fruit. The seeds of one "apple" of
the osage orange on this farm last year
numbered 250. A pint of these seeds
numbers 4,640. In wet land and in dry
land, the hedge is thrifty. There is no
barrier against stock of all kinds that is
so terrifying to them as this. Having
acquired a full knowledge of the whole
process of planting, cultivating and trim
ming the osage orange in Illinois, the
writer would be pleased to communicate
it to your readers, but space will not per
mit at present.
All the early sowed and planted crops
in Albany Prairie are good as they now
appear. Sheep, horses and cattle, where
properly attended, look well here now.
The soil fruits and early apples are abund
ant, but late apples will be rather scarce.
The best and most thrifty orchards are
around the "buttes." Wet lands are not
good for orchards here nor elsewhere.
All the stock of this prairie should be
passed away, except such horses, cows
and hogs as could be thoroughly taken
care of the year round. The fact that
wheat is now only fifty cents per bushel,
should be no obstacle to the farmers from
bringing all Albany. Prairie into a high
state of cultivation as fast as possible.
There should be three or four artesian
wells bored in this prairie, and the water
first used for grist mills, then conveyed
all over, the settlements in pipes for the
supply of water at all the farms for stock
and house use. . Not a bushel of grain
should ever be sent out of this county, as
grain. All should be ground here, and
the offals used for the stock The time
is near at hand when long trains of , cars
will continually pass to and ..fro through
this charming district of Willamette
valley. ; Ifc is for the farmers to supply
the loading for these cars. If they can
have fall loads, the price of freight will,
of course, be greatly reduced. There
are superior "placer diggings all over
this prairie!. They lie about twelve
inches undeo the euriace of the earth.
The pick, shovel and rocker should be
some of our superior gang ' plows, with
subsoil plows. I he "surface diggings
for six inches down are somewhat ex
hausted in the old fields, but under that
depth, and perhaps for two feet or more
down, the "diggings" are rich as ever j
and the old tanners and their sons can
stay at home with their wives, mothers,
sisters and sweethearts, and live comfort
ably and well, enjoy good society, schools
and church privileges, and yet replenisti
their purses liberally with rich "dust.
Westward from our "observatory," some
ten mile?, is Albany the city of civili
zation, wealth, enterprise, schools and
churches, and enjoyiug loeal advantages
6econd to none in the great Willamette
Valley. Off to the north is Lebanon,
famed for i s educational institution, its
good morals, its temperance, its beauty.
The beautiful blue waters of the Willam
ette river pass along cilualy on the west
ern edge of this prairie on its'way to the
mighty Columbia, and in it to lose itself
in the vast Pacific ocean, on whose bosom
floats the ships of all civilized nations,
foremost of which are those of our Own
great nation. Kind and benevolent in
peace, but mighty and unconquerable in
war; whose escutcheon is the proud
eagle, ancLwhose emblem is the stars and
stripes the palladium of our liberties,
and the pride and. protection of every
loyal person in the laud of the free and
home of tho brave. Beautiful and en
chanting is the scenery far and near
from this point. I would that a thous
and prominent men from New York,
Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis, Charles
ton, S. C, and a dozen other great cities
of our republic, could stand on our "ob
servatory" and with a telescope extend
their vision in every direction, bringing
the prominent points of this great valley
in full view, as well as those vast white
pyramids along the cone of the Cascade
Mountains the Sierra Nevadas of Cali
forniawhich, though seen daily ty us
here, are ever new, ever wonderful, and
point back to that period of our world's
unwritten history when all the western
slope of North and South America was
one grand theater of volcanic rupture.

Orders have been addressed to Gene

citizens of Kansas and elsewhere on the
Representations from Cuba received.
They state that there has-been several
skirmishes between the Spanish forces
under Gen. Lescu and the Cuban forces,
resulting in compelling the Spanish to.
fall back on Trindad, where they await
reinforcements. The Cubans were pre
paring to follow up this success and at
tack the Spanish forces.
Washington, June 13. Coinmission-
cr Delano has made a decision on the
question submitted by the Board of Bro
kers of New York, as to their liability to
pay a tax of one-twentieth of one per cent,
upon sums received by them for negotia
tions of sales. It is said he decides that
they are liable as commission merchants
for all sales in excess of 500,000 made
for or by them, at the rate of one dollar
for each thousand, except those made
through other wholesale dealers who are
taxed as such and sell on .commissioh,
and consequently are liable on sales made
through commercial brokers. Commer
cial brokers are also liable upon all sales
negotiated by them at the rate of fifty
cents on each $1,000, excepting those
made by or for another broker.

is received that two expeditions number

the revolutionary forces. Desertion from
tho Spanish forces are increasing. There
are frequent collisions between tho Span

difficulties between these parties are lr
reconcilable. The Cubans have organ

Upper Columbia. A correspondent
of the Oregonian, writing from the
Dalles, gives rather a discouraging ac
count of the present prospects of that
once lively little village. He says the
mining trade has almost left the Colum

to depend upon its own natural resources
for prosperity. Real estate has gone
down fifty per cent in the last three years,
and half the houses on the principal streets
are tcnantless. The U. S. 31 int., build
ing at Dalles, is fast approaching com
pletion, the basement walls being comple
ted and the brick work progressing. The
Albany brick machine, (the Excelsior) is
spoken of as doing good work. The
fruit prospects are spoken of as excellent,
and a large crop is expected. A young
German had "struck" an oil spring near
town, which was expected to yield large

$65 and $75.
THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends it favorably to the special
nonce of every larmer. it possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows now in nse. . The
wheels are four feet in diameter, and run on the
nnplowad land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. The plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two levers
to be used in making any alteration. Tbe supe
riority of the "Gay" Plow will be clearly shown
by the following certificate :
We, tbe undersigned, citizens of Linn county,
Oregon, having purchased i and used upon our
farms tbe "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that the
same has given us entire satisfaction. Its facility
for adju'tiug to suit tbe depth of furrow without
moving from the seat, is simple and easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because the same is
