The following letter is taken from the
Houston TelegrapJi of February 2d, and
was written to that journal by an old and
at one time prominent Texan Mr. Theo
dore. The letter is dated Portland, Or.,
January 3d, 1871, and is as follows :
Little did you or "JL think, when we
last met on the Colorado, that I should
turn up here or become your corres
pondent ; but here I am, and believing
that your readers would like now and
then to hear from this jumping-off place,
I propose to find rtom in the Telegraph,
if you will let me, and so here goes for
the first letter. , !
Oregon as a State is not very small,
that is to say, eliei has square . miles
enough to make quite a State, but instead
of being what some might call a big lit
tle State, 1 would call her a very small
big States containing, ' if my ; memory
serves me right, about 90,000 inhabi
tants, scattered about something like the
Texan man's hogs were, one here; in- a
drove and three over there by them
selves, a very large, per centagc, how
ever, being confined to the - Willamette
Valley, which valley1 constitutes Oregon
in fact, and is about twenty miles wide
by about two hundred long. That is
Oregon, and to say that this Willamette
Valley is one of the most highly favored
districts ot country in the United States
is not saying any too much ; for indeed
it is a favored spot -one ou which nature
has most lavishly bestowed her choicest
blessings, viz : one of the most beautiful
rivers iu the world,; navigable from ' its
mouth almost to its source, with numer
ous tributaries flowing in from either side,
only surpassed in beauty by itself, with
a climate mild beyond the conception of
any one who has not experienced ' it,
healthful and invigorating, with a soil
unsurpassed in fertility on the continent.
Wheat, oats and barley, with all the veg
etables, are grown j with cxtmordinary
perfection. The farmer for the period
of thirty years has never failed to receive
a boun'if ul return for his labor, and frost
sever kills, llain is always abundant,
yet never excessive. Apples aud pears
grow larger than anywhere else. Peach
es and plums meet together in the sun
shine, like twin cherries on the same
stem, and cherries of the most delicious
kind arc so plentiful that the birds will
hardly cat them, i Raspberries ripened
this season both in June and November,
also blackberries, salmon berries, cinna
monberries and strawberries.
Mr. Editor, dare: I tell you how they
j grow in the Willamette Valley? If my
; veraciry is brought in question, will you
stand by me ? I tear you falter. Well, I
am goiug to tell anyhow j they grow as
i large as billiard ball.-?, that is to say, small
I billiard balls. j
j A3 A TIMBERED COUNTRY
Oregon. is not surpassed, no, nor equaled
by any. The fir, cedar and pine forests
are really magnificent to behold, and in-,
exhaustible. Lumber is one ofthe pain-
cipal articles of export, and a consider
able business of that kind is
between this country aud
the oldest towns in the State, and a pretty
little city it is, too. Next in order op the
valley comes the State Capital, said tobe -the
prettiest town in Oregon, with5 city
proportions, wide streets, fine hotels,' ana
good houses generally, as also a fine wool
en mill in full blast. Next we bare the
city of Albany, and still on, Eugene City j
both lively towns, and directly on the
line of the Oregon and California Rail
road. ' There are quite a number of other
towns of lesser importance. . : .K-f'n'ti
To the lover of pleasure, to those Wot
have the means to travel, and who lovo
fine scenery - and , natural . curiosities, I
would say come to this coast, for surelj
there is no place on the American conti
nent that can surpass Oregon for beautiful
scenery. Talk of the .Rhine, of the Alps,
of France of Italy, with her,biue ekies
arid vine-clad hills a greater than - all
these can be found in Oregon a -There ia
no country in world that can lay claim to
such scenery as w to be found ou the
Columbia and all of the rivers-talked of,
or written, sf, dwindle; into utter . insig
nificance, compared to the mighty- river
of the W"est, with Its falls, .its ' cascades,
j and mighty rushing waters, walled in on
either side by almost perpendicular banks,
I tliot Qo.trt t'fi rpfirrh almrtst to ' tKn u ,Vd
above, and then j lost to view in 7 the
dense forests of fir, that are never want
ing i and yet more beautiful to the eye and
more sublime are the ever present snow
capped mountains that greet the trav
eler on every side, towering far above
storm, and cloud-clad a they , always
are in , the eternal -. garments of
spotlers white, contrasting beautifully
with the evergreen forests by which they
are surrounded. "' No pen or -ink sketch
can give the faintest idea of the Colum
bia river seen tjry. -There are many other
points on which I blight say something
that would- interest . the readers' of the
i Telegraph, but having written- more al
ready than should be crowded into on
letter, I leave the subject fortho present,
but may have occasion to say something
of Oregon on some future occasion.

Jenny Lind or To-day. From ,
letter describing Jenny Lind'a recent
appearance in Exeter hall London, we
quote the following :
It was not entirely the fog whieh made
our eyes see dimly the sweet-faced ' wo
man sitting by the side of her '.husband ;
thinner, older, sadder, but still with the
same winning, pathetic - atmosphere
about every pose, and every expression
which conquered all hearts twenty years
ago, disarm all criticism and will contin- .
ue to do so as long as Jenny Lind's soul
remains in Jenny Lind's body. If there
be such things as perfect grace of clum
siness, perfect beauty of homeliness, she
has them; and they are more lasting
than the grace of gracefullnctss, or the
beauty of good looks. As it is with her
iacc, her .movements, her attitudes, so it
is with her voice. Sacred above . all - it
j has lost, it has kept a certain something
j of individuality that one would know it
i tor Jcnnv Lind's voice. : In SDite of the
carried ou i husky chest tones, in spite ofthe strained
California, j and hardly reached C, there ia a peculiar
South America. Europe and Asia, and I soul full quality which has rarely been
this will always be quite a source of in- on any stage, except when Jenny Lind
come. i j has sung. Critics would say and, per-

the surroundings. Of railroads she can
boast of but one, aud that one was com
menced but one year ago and is now in
ruuuing order for a distance of one hun
dred miles, with rolling Ftock and quip
ments that will compare favorably with
any road in the East. This is called the
Oregon and California Railroad, running
from this point southerly toward Sacra
mento, California, from which - point the
same road is now some hundred miles
thia side, coming to connect with our end
of the road near the State line.
Ol woolen goods there are three one
at Oregon City, ono at Salem, the pres
ent seat of Government, and one at the
falls on the Columbia river, all io suc
cessful operation and turning out work
that will compare favorably with the best
New England fabrics.
There are quite a number at this place,
and nlso at most of the important towns
on the Willamette river. Tho State
abounds with abundance of coal and iron,
aud is consequently able within herself
to manufacture everything in, tho hard
ware line down, from a locomotive to a
cooking stove. ' ' f ; ' ' ' ' " " "'i1
LUMBER AND FLOURING MILLS.
In this line, Oregon is up with the
times, having as good saw and grist mills
as cau be iound in any State, and owing
to the great amount of wheat, produced
and her very superior water power, per
haps she has better lacuities lor making
flour than can be found in the ; land "of
wooden nutmegs, where, it ia said, they
have a patent for making carpet baggers.
Of Oregon towns, or if you .please,
cities, wo have first the city of Portland,
the commercial city of this young State,
situated five miles above the-point where
the Willamette river empties into the
Columbia river, and ninety miles from its
mouth. Vessels, both. , steam and - sail,
come from all parts ofthe world to this
point at all seasons of the year, making it
quite a business point, 'containing some
10,000 inhabitants, quite a number of
churches, an excellent library, fine streets
with Nicolson pavement predominating,
and are all well lighted with gas. Then
we have Oregon Cify. fifteen miles above,
at the celebrated Willamette Falls, where
the river with reckless impetuosity leaps
over a precipice forty or fifty feet high,,
and glides smoothly on to the Columbia.
At this point they have the finest, water
power I have erer seen. This is one of
haps by rules of art, their assertions can
not be contradicted, that Jenny Lind's
