Gray Wolves -A number of gray

Sorghpm Sugar. Mr. Goddird
brought into our office last week, a
sample of Sorghum sugar made fioni
the Early amber cane. Jt is very ne
grained and exceedingly sweet, much
resembling the finest quality of Island
sugar. The question of its manufac
ture from care, that can be raisod here
as easily as corn, is now settled, it is
jio use to ask will it pay to make it?
.Any article of necessary consumption
ithat will absorb our ownidle labor will
jiay, as it will stop a very serious leak;
.even if it seems to cost more than the
imported article. There is no reason
why experience in the manufacture of
sugar will not enable our furmcrs in
good time to compete with foreign pro
ducers ami everything must have a be
ginuing. SoRGnuu Syrup: As. this-manufac--turo
seems to have takqn quite a start,
(anj' mention of its details should in
terest our readers. From Mr. David
son of Williams creek, Josephine coun
ty, we learn that the common sorghum
is as easily raised in.this climate as corn,
requiring only a little more attention
for tho firstyear, nfter coming up, and
-that its manufacture into sj'rup i quite
simple. Mr. Davidson brought us a.
sample of the article made by him last
vear which is very superior and equal
to any syrup brought into this market,
lie made one hundred and fifty gallons
"last year and says that he considers
.eighty gallons je,r acre on an average
yield. It is the intention of the farm-,
.er ,in his -neighborhood to procure a
turn dvnnff toe flonwr olmuner.

In the last issue of tho Sentinel we
noticed tho dangerous illness of Mrs.
Rial Benedict and to-day, it is our
painful duty to note that she was called
hence on the morning of the 7th inst,
Mrs. Benedict was one of the pio
neer women of Oregon, emigrating from
the State of Illinois to the Willamette
valley in 1852 and removing thence to
Rogue river valley in the Fall of 1854.
After the commencement of Indian
hostilities in 1855 sho started for Il
linois in company wjth her husband
and being attacked by Indiana, on
Slate creek, barely escaped with her
life, several bullets being shot through
her veil. Returning to Jackson coun
ty I860, she remained here ever since,
with the exception of a few months,
during which she re-visited the old
home and brought her aged mother to
this county. Mrs. Benedict was a
most estimable lady and a true repre
sentative woman.-of the West, full of
spirit and endurance tempered with all
the kindly and gentle graces of woman
hood, and she laid ilown her burden
with the full assurance of reward for
all her toils and privations. She
leaves no family but a bereaved hus
band and a host of sorrowing friends,
""ho, on Friday last, saw her remains
laid away in our beautiful cemetery.
Port Orford has been selected by the
Board of Engineers for the Pacific ;oast
as the most suitable point for a barbqr

of refuge. It is probable that thei
uoara considered the question ot man-n
..." .. - . .
time wants onlyas that point will
not be of much value in connection
with interior commerce as the moun
tains surrounding it are high and rug
ged. Speaking of the selection, the
"Chronicle" says; The proposed break
water will be 2000 feet in length, and
will protect about ninety acres pf
harbor, with a depth from four to
twe've fathoms. The cost of the im
provements will be in the neighbor
hood of 3,500,000. The extension of
the rock-wall to a distance of 3000 feet
farther, enlarging the protected harbor
to 300 acreswill depend on the neces
sities of commerce in the future. The
port is greatly favored by mariners
from the ease of entry and departure,
its faeedom from fogs, its large .size
and its convenient location, and among
coast navigators the selection of the
-Commissioners gives general satisfac
tion. Ijf Holiday Dress. Early last
week our little city was dressed in hol
iday attire in anticipation of visitors
from across tlie snowy "Siskiyous,"
who come to assist in the dedication

at the entrance to the Hall and the
grand hotel cf Madame Holt, just op
