JITessrs. , AUmny, Or,,
Gentlemen: Your favor pt 18th
inst. at hand, nnd contents noted.-
Wheat at Astoria in warehouse on
tho water front, where it could bo
placed onboard tdiip without expense,
ought, to be worth San Francisco
rices, ' less freight and insurance,
mtli of whioh vary with tho season
of the year, tho abundance or scarcity
of tonnage, anil charter of vessel.
Steamer freight is $5.00 per ton, say
25 cts. per 10U pounds.
Yon ore sensible in putting your
wheat nt Astoria. It is far prefer
able, to Portland.
Mr. Friedhnder is tho most exten
sive wheat merchant on t'oe coast,
and his opinion is worth muuii to those
interested in that important trafiio.
Ills testimony in favor of "Astoria as
a shipping port for Oregon is valua
ble, .and is another argument in sup
port of enr frequently expressed po
sition ypon that point.
If, as Mr. Friedlatidcr savs, wheat
in warehouse at Astoria ought to bo
worth San Francisco price, then, ac
cording to the present San Francisco
quotations (S2 per 100 Us.) wheat at
Astoria should command $1.20 per
bushel, or fifty cents per bushel more
than is now otlercd in our local mar-
I ket. With tho open locks, and com
petition in transportation, wheat
should not cost more than ten cents
per bushel for transportation from
Albany to Astoria. This is an exces
sive, rather than an under estimate of
the cost of transportation. Then, our
wlseat should command, nt this point,
with Astoria for a shipping port for
foreign market, $1.10 per bushel.
This is a plain proposition, and wo
leave our larmer friends to consider
whether it would not bo to their in
terest to assist in making Astoria the
shipping point for their grain.
THE COMING l BEAT CROP.
The weather of the current spring
has been remarkably favorable, even !
for our favored Oregon, to the grain
producing classes, and we hazard
nothing in asserting that the breadth
of land sown in the Willamette Val
ley to wheat during the present year
is much larger than that of any pre
vious season, while tho propitious
weather has assured tiie producer a
full crop from every acre put in. Our
advices from other sections of the
State are equally flattering, and from
the present outlook it may bo reason
ably calculated that Oregon will pro
duce this year at least a ha'f . million
bushels of wheat in excess of any pre
vious season. Then, it may not be
out of the way to estimate the com
ing crop at four million bushels. Of
this amount Linn county alone will
produce nearly one-fourth, and Linn,
Lane and Marion at least three-fifths.
Were the oilier counties of the Stale
as, contiguous to transportation facili
ties we would doubtless not' be able
to boast that these three counties
raise more wheat than the balance of
the State, as many of the other coun
ties are possessed of thousands of
acres of as rich and fertile lands as
any to be found in the three named
above. Powder Kiver, Grande
Konde aud Umatilla Valleys, in East
ern Oregon, and Kogue Kiver and
Uinpqtia upon our Southern margin,
are equally productive, but their re
moteness from market and compara
tive destitution of transportation fa
cilities 'afford no inducement to the
people of those sections to engage in
wheat culture upon an extended scale.
With a good price for the fruits of
the approaching harvest our State
will be amply supplied with a circu
lating medium, and the present wail
of "hard times'' will no longer salute
every passer by,

We reproduce from our telegraph
columns tho following interesting dis
Chicago. May 3. A Washington
special says that as soon as the Presi
dent ri turns there will he a Cabinet
consultation, whereat the Indian ques
tion will be fully discussed and ome
plan adopted lo meet any outbreak of
tho savages that inny occur this sum
mer. The President is expected there
at tho beginning of next week ; mean
time no new arrangements will be
made, eiiht-r as regards tho Modoc
or other hostile tribes.
Tho Secretary of the Interior yes
terday received the following from
Governor Ferry, of Washington Ter
ritory: 'There ae strong indications
of hostility among the Indian of this
Territory. Emissaries from the Mo
docs have probably visited them.
Settlers have called upon ine for arms,
but there are nono in the Territory.
I await instructions.' Tho telegram
wai referred to Acting Secretary
Robeson, -who authorizes the issue of
arms to tho extent of the Territorv's
I nuofa of militia on requisition of lie
uovcroor, who must nmterstand that
the General Government in no way
authorizes any military operations
not instituted by its order aud under
it direction and control.''
Tho second was dated at Washing
ton, May Sd. Both appeared in the
citv papers of Monday morning.
The same indications of hostility
from Iudians, and the anprehension.i
of settlers, described in Gov. Ferry's
telegram, exist in Eastern and South
eastern Oregon, in Idaho and in
Northern California. Thousands of
settlers are in imminent peril of prop
erty and more than life. Knowing
this, Prchident Grant has started on a
pleasure excursion to his farm near
St. Louis. As soon as lie returns,
some plan will bo adopted "to meet
any outbreak of tho savages that may
occur this summer." In the mean
time thero will te no measures taken
to protect settlers against the impend
ing danger. It looks very, much as
though the President's convenience is
moru to him than tho lives of people
on the frontier. There is no instance
in his administrative career when he
has been so criminally indifferent to
the duties of his oflico as this dispatch
shows him to bo at this moment. If
ho is insensible to his duty, he should
at least not bo insensible to a feel'ins
of sympathy for the unfortunate peo
ple whoso lives aro exposed. Even
tho Atlantic Monthly was compelled
to say last Fall, that President Grant
took a "low view" of tho Presidential
office. It should now sav that ho
takes a mot inhuman and unmcrci
fully low view of it.
, To make this disgraceful picture
complete, we append one more ex
tract taken f rom the St. Louis JJetno-
crat of April 22d. It shows the na
ture of tho employment that is oc
cupving the attention of the Execu
tive lo the postponement of measures
for the protection of our people :
"After a short run, the Dent Form
was reached, and the excusiouists al-
lighted at Grant Station. General
Grierson joined thcpjsrty here. .Pres
ident Grant, escorting Sirs. J. M.
Harney, and followed by Airs. Grant
and General Harney, immediately pro
ceeded to the stables and made an in
spection of tho stock. Tho cattle
were hrst visited, and herds of Hol-
stein and Aldernev 6tock examined.
But the General was evidently eaacr
lo get to his horses, and did not tarry
very long here. The horse-barn was
next visited, and the choicest inmates
led ont for their owner's inspection.
As the beautiful nnd -well-groomed
horses were brought from their stalls,
General Grants eyes went over thorn
rapidly, and he pointed out their fine
points to General Harney and others
of tho party. Thero wero twenty
horses in the stable four yearlings,
three two-year-olds, two three-vear-
ohls, two stallions, four and five years
old, one four-year-old,' and eight com
monhorses. Air wero in the most
perfect condition, their sleek skins
glistening as, they were led about.
.Mr. William Elrod, the superintend
ent ot the farm, seemed to be as proud
of the horses as their owner, and their
appearance would indicate that they
were in no danger ot suflenng irora
want of care. . y -'
Tho blooded stock received special
attention. " Among them were a Ris
dyke Hambletoniau stallion five years

the careful manner in which he was

dren, had gatbeicd on the bridge to
witueMS th reiei.ony, w hen sudden
ly tho bridge gave way and r.-ci-pituted
its living freight into the
stri-ttiu below. The s.'-ne which eu
sued wai indesciibaldy terrible, as
the struggling victims t-iu'envored to
free Jhemselves from the ruins of the
bridge and from ech other. Large
crowds on the bunks rushed wildly
to and fro, many of them so distract
ed with terror as to be auablo to ren
der any assistance; others, more self
possessed, speeddr brought ropes,
planks nnd bunts, and went nobly to
work. Some of those who were on the
bridge when it fell were ho ne.n the
end that they were able to reach the
bauk without asistance, while
others were fortunately within reach
of those on shore. Up to Up. . ,
thirty-two bodies bad leen taken 'in.
It is almost certain there are others
bliil under the wreck of the bridge.
Seventy-four were rescued ulive, but
more or lsa injured, some fatally.
Midnight. Up to ibi hour uo other
bodies have Wen recovered at this
point, but several others are reported
picked up at Sterling, six miles be
low, aud doubtless tut swift current
has bora others still t further down
the river. The general estimate of
the number lost is from ninety to
ono hundred, it was stated in pre
vious dispatches that thirty-two
Ixxlies were recovered before dark.
Five other bodies floated past those
engaged at the wreck, aud have not
yet been recovered. There are sup
posed to be at lust fifty bodies that
have not yet been found. Most of
them, it is thought, are under the
wreck of the bridge.
