i Know or one tarty or some eighteen or

those of Mr. Crump, from Albany, are all favor
able, and encouraging to i migrants or to those
who contemplate emigration,, 1 repeat what
said In Oregon and have said hundreds of
times since my return Oregon needs a rail
road connection with the rest of the world.
All the energies of the State and the people
should bo directed and held to this one great
deslderatnm. As for myself, I never en loved a
trip more in my life than I did the one on the
noble steamer JtJtn i. Su-jjirns, from Portland
to San Francisco, and have no hesitancy what
ever in recommending It to all emigrants, bufi

Taxes are evils to he dreaded, bnt they are
necessary evils, and we are bearing them here
to an extent that fairly makes ones eyelids
quiver, but, if I were a comfortably domiciled
in the" Webfoot 8tate " as I am here, I think I
could very readily consent to be taxed to help
build such a railroad as it seems to me to be the
one thing needed to inflate the Oregonian Bal
loon, and send it sailing to the very summit of
prosperity, greatness and grandeur.
Before this reaches you, you will have learned
that Arkansas matters have become settled, the
State reconstructed and the present State gov
ernment and officers recognised by the powers
at Washington. " Since all this lias transpired,
Gov. Gariand has Issued his proclamation of
amnesty." and especially countermanding the
one offering a reward for the apprehension of
Volney Smith; so Volney is safe! and also Joe
Brooks is appointed Post master at Little Rock,
which I have no doubt Is a better paying office
than that of Governor. It is thought that Gar
land (who was a confederate senator in war
times) will succeed Clayton in the United States
Senate, but some believe Uiat Judge Caldwell,
of tbe V. S. District Court, and Gov, Baxter, are
hot b aspirants for the much coveted cushion -and
tliey are no mean competitors. The Pen
oeraia'wlll hav it their own way, having a
large majority In each branch of tho Legisla

quite hungry for the " flesh pots." Who blames
them? KotL - 1 1
The "labor question n is being seriously con
sidered here by the people generally, and par
ticularly by the farmers and. tbe Grangers. It
has become Indeed (Reabsorbing problem of the
day. When cotton is down and tbe crops are
short, it 1 clearly demonstrated that farming
don't pay. It is equally plain, too, that .tha
colored people are not " overly n fond of work
under such e'renmstances. They flock Intoand
around the towns and villages and seem to pre
fer depending, upon transient Jobs that fall ia
their way or that they can pick up, rather than
regular farm work. This you: will imagine to
be a rather precarious way of getting a llveli
hood, but they manage somehow to live, though
I doubt if their tables ever "groan with lux
uries." I know they are not st rict followers of
fashlao In dress and their linen (w'hich ia urn u
erally eoarte cotton) is rarely like the fleece, of

trotter, driving him to a sulky, and while
passing the residence of H. Weed, corner
Montgomery and Third streets, a couple of
dogs came charging out," barking vocifer
ously, which startled the horse, causing
him to jump to one side,- throwing ttie
sulky into the ditch where it opset. Cal
lit out gracefully on his head, but held on
to the ribbons. The upsetting of tlie sulky
drew one ofthe thills ou to the sorrel's
back, which caused biro to go to work with
his heels, and with a few vigorous kicks
he broke the thills off close up to tbe axle.
and freed himself from tlie vehicle." No
further damage was done, however, as
Cal. held on to the ribbons.
