Will do Good. Hon. S. Garfield,

General Prospect. -As yet no sat
isfactory and reliable information relative
to the crops of tbe present season through
out the United States can. be arrived at.
Reports differ so -widely in this regard
that no certain figures, at this time, can
be given. The general conclusion beems
to be, however, that throughout the
great grain growing sections of the
country, the yield will average with that
of 'former years ; and that, with no for
eign demand, prices would not materially
differ from those of. last season. But
judging from the accounts that reachms
from Europe in regard to the crops there,
there is likely to be a lively - foreign de
mand for wheat. A partial failure of
the great staple is reported there, and
under the influence of that report wheat
shows a steady upward tendency in New
York. A steady improvement - is also
noted in San Francisco wheat being
twenty cents per cental higher than six
weeks ago. This state of facts will not
be likely to engender f'blues" among the
agriculturists of Oregon. A few days
since, the Ortgonian, fearing that the
rise in wheat would be but temporary,
regretted the low stage of water in the
Willamette at present, which prevented
our farmers' and dealers in the valley
taking advantage ef it. Just such eases
as this will arise, when the laok of trans
portation facilities will be seen and felt
throughout the valley, so long a we are
entirely dependent on the Willamette
iriver as an outlet to market. They ap
peal directly to the pocket, thus pto
d ocing the most convincing argttment
ew be brought to bear upon: the
most obtuse, in- favor of ftransportatbn
facilities which are not affected' by dwrth
or "mistf railroads. CTne present iw
ertased demand for wheat may or may
not be temporary further advices from
Europe will be anxiously looked for,
which wUl settle that matter but the
fac thai just When we" need facilities of
transportation most, they entirely fail us,
is a matter that requires but limited
understanding to perceive. . We have
always been in favor of the construction
. of a 'railroad or railroads through the
Willamette valley, and? urged their ne
cessity, bnt we are more convinced of
the want ot such enterprises now than
ever before, and we hope that before
another season is upon us, such want
may be supplied. Speed, the railroad.
ItS MOV At OF THE NATIONAL CAP-
ItAi. For some time past Eastern jour
nals have been urging the necessity of a
removal of the national Capital to a more
central location, and by general consent
8U Louis (Mo.) seems to be 'nominated
'as the place for establishing the future
Capital of this great country. In speak
ing of the chances and urging the neces
sity ef the removal, the St.. Louis Demo
crat figures in this way : The Slates now
represented in Congress which, by loca
ton or natural alliance with the Missis
sippi valley, may be expected to favor a
removal of the Capital, number fourteen,
giving twenty-eight Senators and one
hundred - and thirteen Representatives.
The New '.England States, New York,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland,
Delaware, North Carolina, .South Caro
lina and Florida, may be expected to
favor the present location, and they are
represented by twenty-eight Senators
and one hundred and seven members.
Georgia, whose condition is in depute,
and will be until its Legislature ceases
to defy the Constitutionals an Atlantic
State, but a considerable part of it is
more closely allied in business and in
terest with the interior of the South.
West Virginia is on this side" of the
mountains, and strictly bqlongs to the
great valley, but its comparative prox
imity to Washington may turn its vote
the other way. With Georgia and West
Virginia, the Atlantic vote, would be
thirty-two Senators and one hundred and
seventeen members. : Now it is not ex
pected that the votes of all members will
be governed by considerations of locality
only. Some of those who come from
States allied fro the valley may oppose a
change at this time, while some others
from the Atlantic State may with rea
son believe that, as the . change is- inevit
able, it had -better come before .more
money has been expended at Washing
ton. The fact that the mileage of
Eastern members would be increased by
removal ought not to be considered at
all. But the intolerable annoyances and
unendurable swindles of Washington
the hotel charges, the boarding house
charges, the rents,"the cost of living, the
expense of maintaining that public
nuisance called the District of Columbia,
the bother of passing laws for it,- and
the perpetual torment of having to take
a day's journey whenever ' a member
wishes to serve a constituent jit any of
the departments these considerations
are justly of weight with Eastern men
as well as with Western. Very few
people realize how heartily Washington
city is hated by the nnlucky people who
have been forced to submit to all its
frauds and impositions. We reason, then,
that the number off members from the
Atlantic States who would favor a change
will be greater- than those of the valley
States who will oppose itr enough greater
to turn the ' scale even in the present
Congress, if the West should unite and
present the matter seriously, and with
energy and tact As to the transfer
itself, that could be effected in one year
as well as in twentyT ' It only needs more
men, more ships and more energy.' The
nation which has learned to build ten
mile! of railroad in a day, can surely
move a half .dozen stone buildings or as
much of them as may be worth moving
and put them op in decent . shape,
without great delay.

Immigrant Aid Subscription.
From the dalies we learn that subscrip
tions in behalf of the Immigrant Aid
Society, inaugurated in Portland, have
been very liberal in that city, and sever
al thousand dollars will be put into the
treasury with which to commence opera
tions at the meeting for the full organiza
tion by the election of trustees, ect., this
evening. Let other portions of the State
respond with equal liberality to the de
mands of the Society, to the end that
the resources and inducements to immi
gration from the older States to Oregon
may be properly published throughout

Snow. Fifteen miles back of Montreal,
Canada, they had a snow storm on Inst
, The EcLiPSE.-From the different
parts of the country where' the eclipse
was total, observations taken by i the
various scientific parties are highly satis
factory, and science and human knowl
edge are greatly benefitted thereby.
Perfect photographs of the different
stages of the obscurance were taken in
great numbers. The scene where the
eclipse was total is described as sublime
and awe-inspiring beyond, description. .
Politic. in Massachusetts.- The
liquor question is making the political
question in old Massachusetts lively,
dividing the llepubhcan party and
making Claflin's chanoo for re-election
to the Governorship doubtful. Senator
Wilson, being ehicf of the prohibitionists,
will probably be defeated for. the U. S
Senate in consequence of such position,
whilo General Butler is goitjg after the
Senatorial honors, and expects to win.
Government Lands. The follow
ing report of the business of the U. S.'
Land Office at Roseburg, for July, 1869,
is . from . the Ensign:. Lands entered,
1,004.77 acres ; pre-empted, 1,760 aines ;
under the homestead act, 1,073 acres
total, 4,438, acres.
. Assassins Arrested. From the
Oregonian wo learn that four of the
Hess family and a man named , Dean,
have been arrested, accused of having
caused the death of Claib. Morris in
Yamhill county, a few days- since.
, Declined. Gen. ltosecrans declines
the nomination for Governor of Ohio at
the hands of the Democracy. This
necessitates the assembling of a new
convention to put another man in

Ice. They are manufacturing ice by
a new process at New Orleans, at a cost
much less than the natural article can

as good and pure as fresh water ice.
Good Behavior. A San "Francisco
paper says that there were three hundred

Be Careful. A young scion of one
of our families went into the river for a

broke out on him, as the ease is reported
to us. The consequence was that he had
to be carried home, and was for a while
in a critical state. It won't do to take
too many chances on the measles, as they
aro very liable to kill if not treated with
great urb-anity. That's all. '

The total' attendance during the col
legiate year was 110. The la3t Oregon
Legislature designated this college as
the Agricultural College of the State,
and a special course of study in Agri
culture 'and the Mechanic Arts will be
prepared by the Board of Trustees for
the next ' term, or first session, which
begins September 8th 1869..
Cause Why. Steamboats don't run
up and down the sinuous and pelucid
Willamette to any enormous extent at
present, because of the unprecedented
scarcity of water within its banks. That's
what's the matter. " -
Mt. Hood. In our notice of the big
