Tine CULTIVATION ok Prunes. II.
II. Tuttie. writing to the Portland
Bulletin, calls attention to a branch of j
industry which might be entered into
largely In Oregon, with the most
profitable results, If his fignres are j
correct. The branch of industry to j
which he calls attention is the eulti- j
Vflflon of the prune or plum. The i
statement made is that the business
cannot be overdone; that there will
always be a good market for the
fruit in a dried slate nt remunerative
prices; that no State east ot the Rocky !
Mountains can raise them, and that
Ores: .in produces them in perfection.
Mr. Walling, at his place, near Mil
waukee, soli I tlie product of four acres
for the neat little sum of $3.000 this
at 15c per pound. The labor of gather
ing and drying is said to amount to
but a trifle, as far as the expense 'il
concerned. Mr. Luclling, another
nurseryman, sent his crop green to
San Francisco, where he realized five
cents per pound net for them. Mr.
Miller, of Milwaukee, sends his to
Baltimore, dried. Onr' prunes are
preferred above all others in the Eas
tern markets, and from all quarters
comes the demand, "Wh never saw
the like : send us all you can of them."
In California the fruit loes its prune
nature anil changes to a plum. It i
a branch of industry in which no other
State in the Union, can begin to coin-
pete with ns, and when railroad com
munication is opened up direct to the
great centres of trade in the East,
there will scarcely be a limit to the
amoint tint can he sold there. Land
suitable for the cultivation of the fruit
can be obtained in close proximity to
the railroad or rive'r. at from $10 to
f40 per acre, anywhere in the Wil
lamette Valley, so that a very little
capita! invested will secure the largest
results. Almost any kind of fruit does
well in Oregon.

; The city of Albany is the county-seat
of Linn. county, located on the south
east bank of the Willamette river,
about 100 miles south of Portland, by
i river, and 80 miles by railroad; sou'h
' of Salem 45 miles by river and 30 miles
j by railroad, and north of Eugene City
! 45 miles.
Albany is located in a prairie of the
same name, which is the "great agricul
tural center of the Willamette alley,
and it is believed that upward of 500,
000 bushels of surplus w heat will be re
ceived at that point, the present season.
The most of It w ill Audits w ay to for

is navigaied bv beautiful steamers,

w ith itsMieautitiil locomotives, is pass
ing through the city daily, fhe city
ot Albany is located upon a high, roll
ing prairie, withiheCalapoofa, a beau
tiful creek, flow ing into the Willamette
river on the west, the water of which
is used in driving two large (louring
mills, situated on tlie bank of the Wil
lamette river. The city Is about one
mile in length, running east and west,
ami from one-half to three-fourths
of a mile in width, and is laid off with
streets of good width.
The Canal, w hich Is the subject and
object of this communication, receives,
its waters from (he South Saiitlain
river, which heads in the areiitCnscade
mountains, some 75 miles east of
Albany ; thence running westerly
through a valley of the same name, to
Lebanon, a village located near the
west bank of said river, 13 miles east
of Albany. The Canal receives the
waters from the Santlani river at that
point, thence running west to its ter
minus at Albany. The main Santiain
flows uorthwaed, and empties its
mountain waters Into the Willamette
river 10 miles northeast of Albany.
The Canal is brought from Lebanon
through a beautiful prairie for a dis
tance of 12 miles, aoil empties into the
Willamette river, forming on ils way
and in the city some of the fittest water
powers for manufacturing purposes
found on the Pacific coast. There are
