Orrtou'e Display mt the fcntennlal.
Fow persons outsiJo ot the oitizons
of this State arc awnro ot tbo quality,
quantity, aud variety ot Orogous-'
productions, d1 wbcu iufor'mod of it
do not bulicvo the inlormant, al
though hia or hor veracity has nevor
bctore been doubted ; therefore it is
a sourco of congratulation to know
that samples ot our Stnto's produc
tions will be on exhibition nt the
Centennial, whore all doubting
Thomases csu see tor thcmsoivcs that
the remarkablo stories havo in no
wise been exaggerated, but, if any
thing, not much more than half told.
To tho untiring energy and porscvor
enco ot Air. A. J. Dufnr this iStato is
indebted to the good display that
...!ll t... J. a . fl ..l -i :
win uu uiuuu ut uiu cuniuuiiitti exuiui
tion of Oregon's productions. So
that any and all citizens interestod in
knowing that fair samples of tho pro
duction of tho Boil will bo exhibited,
Mr. Dufur socurod a room to uiako
tho display previous tq shipping them
East. The samples exhibited aro
taken from largo parcels as avcragos,
and therefore convey a bottcr idea of
tho superior quality of our produc
tions. Of ccresls, wo wo noticod
samples in straw and also threshed,
of wheat, barley, rye, oats, spols, llax,
corn, etc. Ot wheat, there are many
varieties of spring and fall ; their
names, as far as wo can learn, aro as
follows : Chili Club, Canadian Club,
Chili White, Australian Club, White
Velvet, Scotch Fife, Touswll Fall,
Noah Island, Mammoth Whito, Mao-
caroni Wheat, Golden Amber Egyp
tian (soven headed). Tho yield to
tho acre of samples wan from 35 to
UW bushels, and woight from w to
G5 pounds to tho bushel. Some of
tho samples in straw are as ingn as
. rial t
six loot, mere is out one variety 01
barley. It is of superior quality, and
the straw is over six feet in height.
Vlio ryo in straw is nino foot hk'h.
Of oats, there aro in grain and straw,
six varieties as follows : New Ger
man, Side-oats, White Norwoy, Sur
prise, Somerset, and Hopctou. Some
ot the samples in straw aro ovor
eight feet bight, and the yiold to the
acre is from CO to 80 bushels ; somo
weigh as high as 50 pounds to the
bushel. Rye in straw is nine feet
high, and threshed, the kernel is large
and ot superior quality. Spols is a
Herman cereal, and grows in great
luxuriance in this State. Tho yield
to the aero is from 80 to 120 bushels.
Its weight wo do not know. It is
claimed that Spels makes excellent
Hour, and is superior teed lor stock.
There aro several varieties of flax ex-hibitod--both
in straw and grain.
Two varieties, tho Bombay and Chili,
wero imported for seed by the
Pioneer Linseed Oil Works; they
give a good return in seed for oil,
but is not pt much value for lint.
The other two varieties, Riza and
Dutch, are ot great value in produc
ing lint, but for seed, crop is short
when compared with tho ether two.
There are two varieties of corn in
car tho Yellow and While Dont. In
cultivated grasses there are twelve va
rieties. Some of the names we could not'
got; those named were as follows:
lied-top in straw, six and a half foot
high ; Orchard grass, six feet high ;
Kentucky lJlue-grass, six feet high ;
timothy, six feet high. Those varie
ties gave a return of from two and a
half to three and a half tons to the
acre. A sample of clover live feet
high is displayed, and also a fine sam
ple of liescuo and Millett grass. Iu
tho root crop, they only exhibit some
larcre and fino varieties of potatoes. In
fruit, only pears. Mr. Dufur informed
us that it is the intention to lorward
from hero to the exhibition samples of
all kinds ot fruit in their seasons. A
most beaut iful sample of currant wine,
jam and jelley is sunt by Mr. Gould-
ing. There are six tleeccs ol wool
from which samples aro taken and ex
hibited on cards. Tho combing wool
is one year old, and avetages thirteen
inches in length. Tho lambs comb
ing wool, six months old, is six inches
in length. The Famplc of Spanish
and Frcnah memo are very fino lor
this State. There aro twenty one
varieties of native grasses, and one of
tho Spico tree. It is very pungent,
and can bo utilized to advantage. In
preserved frails, vegetables, and
meats, tho .Allien rruii rrcaerviug
Co., at Oregon City make a fino dt
ptay. Ono which it is imposs.blo to
do iuhtice to in a written article, and
to be appreciated, mart bo seen. Sev
eral ladies in Columbia county have
shown a commendable zeal in collect
ing and arranging Oregon ferns,
moss, Autumn leaves, etc. Tho taste
displayed can not be excelled. Tho
l'iont-er Linseed Oil Works send
samples ot their production raw and
boiled oil and oil meal. A beautiful
wreath ot cone work and also baskets
of cono work, besides, a large-sized
onfmvin" or raintin2 of tho Slate
House arSalcm, and a map of Oregon
ten by twenty feet, and alo a mining
scene in moss perfect to life will
be on exhibition at the uentenniai.
Tho map of Oregon will bo of iUelf
of muou value, and will, undoubtedly
do great service in directing immi
grants this way. Resides the above,
there is a fino sample of Oregon glue
clear and beautiful. It is packed
in highly finishod box ot Oregon
maple and laurel; two samples of
flour ; a sample ot mineral paint, and
a sample ot porcelain clay. Tho dis
play rnado Iicro of furs, skius, and
boms ot nativo animals is largo, but
men, we aro informed that not more
than ono quarter of the different
kinds to be exhibited aro on exhibi
tion hero. Thoro is on exhibition
hero tho head and antlers of an oik,
mule-deer,-and fallow deer. Tho
mnle-dcor is a cross between nn elk
and a black-tail deer, and is peculiar
to this section. Thcro aro lurs and
skins of tho fisher, martin, ottor,
black mink, whito mink, gray wolf of
tho Cascades, nnd tho cayote. Of
Oregon timber, there aro nieces of
thirty dilleront kinds. Tho yollow
fir U represented by two pieces takon
from a treo fifteen feet nt tho baso
ono was takon out at a height of 130
feef , and is oight feet in diameter, and
the other was takon out at a height of
200 loot, and is iivo and a half feet in
diameter. The tido land spruce is
represented hy two sections, taken
from a tree sixteen feet nt tl.o baso
ono of tho pieces was taken out at a
height of 118 feet and is seven feet
two inches In diameter, and the other
piece, taken out at a height of 113
feet, is tivo and a half teet in diamo
tor. Thoro is a pioco ot Scotch
laurel, white oak, curl maple, crab
iipplo, cliitem (two kinds), finishing
laurel, 42 inches in diameter, silver fir
of tho Cascades, whito pine of the
Cascades, arrow wood, wild plum,

ot tbo Alps, (this last specie is only
found at tho baso ot the snow of the
Alps nnd tho Cascades,) yew wood,
alder three feet and a half in diame
ter, nsh and several other kinds. At
Astoria they will forward samples of
shingles, staves, bolts, etc
As remarked elsewhere, this article
does n Jt pretond to cmbraco all that
will be forwarded; it is only intended
to convey a lair idea of that which
will.be sent from bore.
I Wheat Croulnu;ProUtablo.
Editw Cultivator: I find thoro is
a groat diversity of opinion in the
farming community of Oregon, in
regard to tho manner ot farming, and
tho profits of capital invested ; I pro
pose at this time to review this held
of enterprise, especially tho cost and
profit ol raising wheat, also giving a
tew bints relative to thoory and expe
rience, in order to keep the wheel
of progress in motion we must first
excite our intellectual taoullies; and
commence thinking, from this we aro
very liaolo to talk and act. In this
way the wo. Id advance in all sciences
ami improvements. Is it a profitable
business to invest capital in laud at
the average price ot laud, and wheat?
this is the question. We will en
deavor to investigate this matter by
actual figures, and see it theory and
experience conflict, and let tho read
er bo the jndgo. I think it is quite
as necessary for farmers to mako cal
culations relative to their business as
it is for merchants and mechanics. If
a mechanic is called upon to erect a
costly mansion, it would look very
unwise tor him to even givo expres
sion tn to uid cost ot construction,
until he had examined tno (Iran and
specifications. This being the ease
he comes to the conclusion from ac
tual figures based upon facts and ex
perience. There are two kinds ot
mechanics in tho world, ono kind pro
poses to learn every thing by experi
ence, and are always twenty years bo-
hind tbo times; tho other kind act
upon the basis of figuring, nnd draft
ing, and are always up and ahead.
This practice holds equally true with
the (arming community. I havo
often beard of farmers saying that it
costs so aud so much to raise a bushel
of wheat: this is what I call an un
qualified expression. Now my ex
perienco ami tno ngures i poposo io
givo will show conclusively that no
ono can tell what it costs per bushel
unlesi bo knows tho circumstances
that surround each and every crop ;
no more than ho can toll what the
coming crop will yield per aorc, or
what tho ruling price may be. In
order to approximate tho cost of rais
ing wheal, and see whether it is
a profitable business or not we shall
ho obliged to establish a basis to
work upon, as much ad a mechanic
needs his dralt and ivpecifications.
The average price of good farming
land in this valley, we will estimate
at $'J0 per acre, averago pneo of
wheat 75 cents per bushel ; average
number of bushels per acre You
will bear in mind the calculations are
based upon land worth from $15 to
.10 per acre, from this basis we find
on an average that an acre of land
will turn oil' in value $18.75. Some
may Le ot the opinion that tho' aver
age prices of land, wheat and bushels
per acre, are over and above the true
estimate. I contend good tanning
land cannot be bought for less than1
$15 per acre, and trom that to $50.
Wheat oftimes gets as low as 50
cents per bushel and may reach a
maximum of $1. Tho yield variedf
all tho way from ten to font bustier!
per acre; Rolow may be foond lh4
average cost ot raising an acre of
grain agrecablo to tho baso establish'
