Since our last report, our farmers
have assembled in their several dis
tricts, and organized Clubs, associating
themselves together not only tor the
interchange of ideas on tlie liest modes
of farming, etc, but tor mutual aid
and protection. So far as reported to
us. these Chilis, some lour or lire in
iiumlier. embracing among their mem-l-ers
the most experienced and wealthy
fanners in the county, have resolv
ed with hardly a dissenting voice, to
erect their own warehouses in which
to store their grain. There is. we be
lieve, a proposition on foot for the sev
eral Clnbs In tlie county to unite in tlie
erection of a mammoth warehouse and
wharf at Astoria, ground liavingheen
Mlered them at that point on the most
advantageous terms. The completion
of the Locks and Canal at falls of tlie
Willamette, will enable tliem to ship
grain direct to Astoria, thus saving im
mense sums heretofore paid for lifer
age. etc. Our formers have gone to
work with an apparent tie termination
f making themselves maters ot the
situation placing themselves in a sit
uation to demand ami receive the high
est attainable price for their product
for the future. Whatever is intended
to benefit the (arming community will
conduce to the general welfare, and
we ate at all times willing to aid. with
all tlie power we may possess, the fur
therance of such objects. Plan" for
tlie attainment of desired ends should
he thoroughly and completely canvass
ed and tally matured, so that when the
actual work is commenced there will
lie no lingering doubts or questions of
feasibility to retard the vigorous pros
ecution to a successful issue. We shall
refer to this matter as often as occasion
