Through the po'iteULSs of Abe llacklemau, Ejq., of this ci!y, wo are permitted to extract the following interesting news from a letter just received from Mr. Frank Moore, dated Mooro's Ranch, North Fork Crooked River, July 19th, 1871. In rela tion to tho cattle recently reported as stolen from Jo. Teal and Henry Coleman by the Indians at Silvio's river, Mr. Moore contradicts the story in toto. lie says that four of the men left in charge of the cattle came to his. (Moore's) camp in the evening, two of them riding one hurse, got their suppur, reported the Indians raising Ned on Silvio's river, and then hurried on to Eagle Rock, ninety miles from Silvie's river. A day or two after Mr. Moore, in company with Mr. Ilonry Coleman, wcut over to Buck Creek, where tbey met Yates with three other men, who reported having been to the Teal fc Coleman camp and Business IfotiCBS. Our. merchants, seem to hare enjoyed a good trade during tha season so far, as, although larger stocks of goods than uko-I al were brought op in tho Spring, they have had to make several large orders since thea,nd again find , tho goods on shelves quite low, and tho season only partially gone. Several of our mer chants have ordered full supplies during the last few days; j. . ?.tf .-. 'n'i': -;A - A'' Mr.. Sam'l Vonng, of Blain, Young A Co., goes to 'Friseo next week to superintend tha pnrchasa of lart e supplies for his house, i This firm has done an immense business, and it is still increas ing.' ' " . .;.;v;..v.,.i-,.. Cbas. Harper, of Harper 4 Co., is preparing to. go to 'Frisco on the same "lay ont.7 : They, too, have sold huge quantities of dry goods, eto. s ; Messrs. Chcadla A Co. receiva goods by almost every steamer, and having adopted the cash plan, find themselves in better circumstances than they would have been under tho old credit system. They are shrewd buyers, aud have an excellent trade.. " . . . . , . .. Mr. J. M. Beach, although the latest comer, possessing admirable business tact, and thorough ly understanding every phase 'of the dry goods business, has secured an excellent run of custom. which his uniform urbanity and fair dealing is constantly augmenting. Messrs. A. Cowan A Co. are selling out their cu- ttr' stock of dry good, boots, shoes, etc., to close business, affordine a rare onnortunitv to nnrchase found nothing dUtnrbed or stolen, and that they ehoiee go(da ai coal and frc5ght. rA look through . J3 C to found the tracks of these latter, and bclioved they would have no difficulty in eeeuring them. Yates intimated that the men in charge of the cattle had let their fears gut the better of their judg ment, and had thus been led into the belief that the Indians were about to gobble them, up, and had fled from an imaginary danger only. Mr. Muore had secured a splendid ranch, and reports his cattle doing well. S it seems Jo. Teal's story of loosing COO head of fine cattlo through the bio dy Injuns, is about as genuine as the "clotted blood" found on his person on a certain occasion. ' i - . Improvements at the Faib Grounds. The Secretary of the Linn County Agricultural Asso- j ciation, Mr. J. II. Evans, informs us that many : needed 'improvements arc under way or are soon j to be inaugurated at the grounds of the Associa tion. Among other things the amphitheatre is to be lengthened sixty feet, making the building ono hundred and twenty f.et long, which will, afford scats for an immense number of people. The lower portion, underneath the seats, will be used as a mommoth restaurant. An addition to the Pavil ion, on the north front, 16x24 feet, is to bo made, nd will be used as unices fur the clerks, giving the whole of the original edifice for the display of such articles as may be brought for exhibition. Various other arrangements for the convenience of exhibitors of agricultural machinery, stock, etc., will be completed soon ; and everything that will conduce to the pleasure and profit of vis itors andi exhibitors in attendanco on the sixth annual fair will be attended to in proer season and in good shape by the proper officers of the Association. The officers are determined that through no lack of energy and accommodation on their part shall there be cause for complaint, and they commence thus early that everything may be in npple-p e order and nothing overlooked that may, in any wsy, prove a drawback or hin drance to tho fullest success of tho exhibition.

He has just made new additions to his stock.' : ' ' :- " Harvest. Our farmers are right in the midst of harvest, and of course are as busy as bees. In stead of cutting, binding and stacking the wheat as was the universal practice formerly in the older States, our farmers n-:o "headers," and tho grain is cut, threshed, sacked, and, in many instances, hauled to the mill or warehouse, all the same day. There is a great saving of labor and time under this management, and a 100-acre field of wheat is soon garnered, and the farmer free to commence operations for another crop. Some of our farmers with whom we have conversed, give ns the grat ifying intelligence that the yield of wheat will bo much larger than anticipated that the want of rain has not affected the crop to the extent feared. We hear of several instances where parties clam that their present crop will averaze as uiKh as thirty bushels to the acre, and ono gentleman claims that ha has a largo field of extra fine grain that will yield at least forty bushels to the acre, The Spring wheat will not turn out so well as this, but the average yield will be much greater than at first anticipated. We believe the quality of the wheat of the present harvest will compare fa vorably with former years, and as there was a greater breadth of ground sown, there will bo a much larger quantity of wheat forsalo in old Linn than ever before known. Gosh East. Mr-Ashljy Pearce owner of the fine ferry across the Willamette at the foot of Ellsworth street, started for his old homo in Illi nois on Tuesday. Ho goes to see his aged father, now in his ninetieth year. Mr. Pearee has resi ded continuously in Orogon -for , the last twenty- four years, a greater portion of that time in Linn and Benton counties, and may therefore be con sidered a gennine representative of Webfoot. He carries with him fair samples of Oregon raised wheat, oats, etc., for exhibition in the Sucker State.. He takes some beads of side oats from Mart. Rainwater's place just across the Willam ette from this city, that will doubtless astonish the "natives.' These beads are from fifteen to eigh teen inches in length, and an averaged head con tained tw hundred and one grains of well filled, plump oats. Such exhibits as these by a practical, well-informed Oregonian cannot fail from producing a good impression with regard to the capacities of eur soil,' upon the mind of all with whom Mr. Pearce ' shall come in contact. Tho many acquaintances of Mr. Pearce in Oregon wish him a speedy and pleasant trip to the old homestead, and an early return among ns. Paraorahs. The Fair Ground. are being; put in readiness for tha County Fair next month. . Six or eight fine horses are to be seen daily train ing on the race eourse at tho Fair Ground. County Fair commences September !6th and holds till the 30th. ; , ' Wheat has been coming in quite lively during the week.- .. . m .. Messrs. Beach A Co. hare been making ImproT ments about their mill daring the week. ' , Blackberries are still plentiful at tho big patch on the mouutain wagon road. . ,,.-5 . Abe Ilackleman had the two first fingers of the . right hand partially iovered while feeding ' thresher on Tuesday. , Levi Backus got in the way . of a sledge-ham. raer, on Tuesday, receiving a blow on the chin that laid the flefh open to tho .bone. He came into this city to have it dressed Tuesday evening. The race between Sheriff Irvine and Dave Fro- man, on Wednesday, drew a crowd. : Dave's legs proved too supple for Boh.- Miller and warehousemen are offering nine'y cents per bushel, a a starter, for wheat. . Business in the County Court has been pretty lively dnring the week. Dr. Rice and family arrived borne from their jaunt too Salmon river, on Tuesday, much the better for the trip. '; 11 Mr. Smith Knox, one of the new proprietors la the City Mills, came- np from San' Francisco the first of the week on a visit. - ' -.. The competition among miller and warehouse men is quite lively in the purchase of wheat, and farmers are sure to get the hi;hest fignres the market will bear in consequence. - ' Rev. A. W.
