machinery it is. Not only the larger air

KiifliHli Sparrows,
Mr, Editor: The newspapers ot Oreeou
nave usa good ileal recently to say con.
oeroiug tbe English sparrows now liumi
gruting iuto this state, borne people seem
to regard tbem as a crest nuisance while
others look npou them as rather a blessing
and extend to tbem a hearty welcome to
Webfoot." While making my recent visit
in tbe "States" I had manv oiioortunitiesof
observing those little feathered inhabitants
ot all tbe towns and oities, which I visited
east of Minneapolis. Tbe first that I no
tioed were in Hurlincton. Iowa. Thev were
to tie seen in tbs streets, on tbe sidewalks

They seemed not to tear the ulnae approach

or oicyoie, out tney always managed to keep
irom ueiug run over or tramped under loot
by the surging mssses which oonstantlv
crowd tbe streets and sidewslks of those
great cities. The people seem to psy as
little attention to the biids ss tbs birds do
to the people. Notwithstanding there were
inoussuds ol sparrows In tbs streets, I nev
er saw a man, or even a boy, so much ai
fling a stone at one of them, nor molest
them in any manner. But both people and
birds appeared to bn busy, attending to
their own business. Tbe sparrows mar in
trnde upon the rights of Hardener aud fruit
growers to a limited exteut, for all that
know; but tbey are certainly pretty good
scavengers, and also destroy tbousandt of
insects waion intest gardens and orcbsrds
observed them oonstantlv at work from
daylight in the morning until the darkness
ol nlgbt Interfered wltb their labors. Upon
tbe whole, I am iuclincd to regsrd them as
useful, as well as ornameutal, and shall not
worry because of their advent iuto Oregon.

Voltaire Oorney, who ia now a resident of
the Siuslsw valley in the vicinity of Ten
Mile lake, was in Rosebnrg a couple ot dsya

Douglas county is rapidly settling up, but
there is still some government land to lie
had there. The soil is rich snd productive
sod the land ia easilv cleared for farming.
A road is being conducted into this region
(which lies between tbe I'mprjna sod Sius
lsw riven) from Gardiner, and another to
Florence in Lane county. Ten Mile, Five
Mile aod Clear lake, are large bodies of
freeh water, the former belig shout 100
mile, in circumference, snd tbe best agri
cultural land of tbe valley is situated on
their borders. They are almost connected
with each othir and furnish an esy mode
of communication between the settlers.
Mr. Gurney states thst Florence is grow
ing very rapidly probably fifty bonus now
