TOWN AND COUNTY,
Wealth of Clackamas Coun
The events of the day are demonstrating the
correctness of the views that the comity of
which Oregon City is the capital has more
importance attached to it than any other
county of the St-te. Commerce and navi
gation do not affect us, nor are we dependant
upon mineral wealth, or agricultural re
sources. These we have, true enough,-but
the chief characteristics are based upon the
unsurpassed water privileges in the county.
This, at Oregon City, is abundant enough to
supply manufactures more than equal to
Lowell and Linn, Massachusetts, and the
use already made of a portion of it is evi
dence that it will be availed of largely in
futuie years. At Oswego the Oregon Iron
Ccmpany have already started an enterprise
'""which is more promising than any similar
establishment upon the Pacific Coast. The
iron beds in that locality are inexhaustible,
and the water-privilege very greatly supeii
or to ordinary privileges. Mihvaukie also
enjoys tbe facility of an abundance of water
for the purposes of manufactures, and al
ready has works which would be a credit
to larger communities. The mountains to
the East of Oregon City contain goid, but
this is a secondary consideration. In agri
culture the couuty is very rich. There is
scarcely an acre of ground in the county
thatwillnot prove valuable under proper
cultivation, and as an evidence of the fact
we would refer strangers to such farms as
that of Mr. Samuel Miller, two miles west of
the city, -Mr. L. J). O. Latourette two miles
east of" the city, Wm. Barlow, ten miles
south of the city. Judge Matlock, north
ast of the city, and a score of others we

' The Chinese. There is no slain
upon the community of Portland half so bad
as that caused by the presence of so many
disreputable Chinese haunts oh th princi
pal streets. Why they have been permitted
to exist so long is quite unaccountable to us,
but there they are. "You cannot extract
blood from a stone," says the old proverb,
but the good people of Oregon City say they
can compare chaos with nature and point
out the measure of conformity. The Chinese
have attempted to show signs of life here,
but with all earnestness their dens were van
quished, and we shall be spared at least for
some time from witnessing their shameless
exhibitions by candle light along these
street?. The citizens of Oregon City are
right in this, and while we may be collect
ively classed by the Celestials as " barbari
ans'' in the worst sense, it is yet very re
freshing to realize that we all know more
about roses, cabbages, and garden vires,
than they of the Flowery Kingdom give us

But we take great pleasure in stating that j lished in the Daily Oreyoniaa and Herald o
strong indications favor the prediction that
we shall next year witness the erection of a
cotton mill in this city. Many of the prom
inent citizens have taken the matter into
serious consideration. Cotton of a superior
quality is now raised in the Sandwich Isl
ands, and there are already two lines of
vessels m the trade with Oregon. That the
business would prove profitable none can
denv. Many such opportunities only await
investment to make tiiis the Lowell of the
Pacific. Let the day soon come.
Snw Peaks.- We can point the
lover of the beautiful of nature to a site not
far from Oregon City, just west a mile or
o, where he can see a picture which it is
truly an inspiration to look at. A view of
the Cascade range from the portico of the
farm house of our friend Samuel Miller,
taking iu the snow-capped summits ol Mounts
Hood, Jefferson, St. Helens, and Rainier,
affords a better text for a criticism upon
landscapes than any that ever can be thought
of by seeing paint and canvas. The subject
will be drawn from nature, and it will be
very prettv to all who have true discrimi
nation. A ride in that direction would
prove a delightful excursion for ladies and !
... . i
Gkain Shipments. There is now
a large quantity of grain coming down the
Willamette river, besides which so much
merchandise is going up that it has been
found necessary to keep all the boats em
ployed that are able to make the trip in low
water. The Echo and one other have aver
aged three trips eacli to Salem for some
weeks, and they will soon be running to
Albany, and other places farther up. A
friend at Albany writes to us that every
farmer in that vicinity has his granery lit
erally full of grain awaiting shipment. A
vast amount of the products of Oregon this
year ought to find a market in China aud
Europe. The bulk of wheat being sold is for
home consumption, or stored for speculative
Town Lots. Messrs. J. C. Trul
linger & Co. of Oswego, have had their land
claim surveyed and laid off into lots, along
the river, which are now selling at very rea
sonable rates. The high prices asked for
lots in Oregon City iu the early days, is what
gave the town twelve miles belnr such a sud
den start. Messrs. Trullinger & Co. realize
what the future of Oswego is to be, very
likely, and will not put au obstacle in the
way of its prospects by taxiug the new
comer so heavily as to forever drive him
Colfax. A basket excursion is
thought of.to take place soon.on the new line
of transportation from Oswego. The Minne
haha, on Sucker Lake, will connect with the
steamer SeMtor,a.ad passengers will be taken
from the upper end of the lake to Colfax by
cars. At Colfax the steamer Yamhill, Capt.
Kellogg, will be in readiness aud proceed
up the Tualatin with tne excursionists, as
far as Taylor's bridge.
Congressional Favors. W
vv e are
under many obligations to members of Con
gress for public documents sent us from
time to time. Hon. Geo. H. Williams, Ore
gon's Senator, Hon. Chas. Upson and Hon.
Austin Blair of Michigan, and Indiana's
nobleman Hon. Schuyler Colfax, will accept
A Truth. The new advertise
ments in this issue is one of the evidences
that business men see the advantage of ad
vertising their wares. It you would find a
liberal dealer, look for his card in the En

up f a local press is most invariably honest,
and you can rely upou what he sells you.
Apolegetic. Several ad vrtise-
ments, intended for the first issue of the
Ekterprisk are unavoidably delayed until
Base Ball. The Pioneer Base
Ball Club of Portland paid our city a visit
on Saturday the 13th, and participated with
the Clackamas Club in a match game. The
day was pleasant, and the playing line.
The first two innings put the Pioneers far
ahead of the Clackamas Cub, and won them
the game, although the last seven innings
were performed much better by the Clack
amas Club It will be seen that the Pio
neers returned with two straight blinds on
their score. The following runs were made:

At the conclusion of the game the partici
pants sat down to a sumptuous feast at the
Barlow House, where good cheer prevailed
until the hour of departure for Portland.
The Oregon City Brass Band under the
leadership of Mr. Thomas Miller, discoursed
fine music throughout the game, headed the
procession on the line of the march, and
" played" their part in a most creditable
and satisfactory manner. A large number
of ladies, both from Portland and Oregon
City, were on the grounds and witnessed
the playing. The Clackamas Clab passed
resolutions expressive of their sense of plea
sure at the proceedings of the day, tending
thanks to the Brass Band, etc., which we
regret to say have been mislaid, and we can
not publish them at this time. The Pioneer
Club send us the following for publication :
At a regular meeting of the Pioneer Base

Rev. Mr Doan, Presiding Elder of ibis Dis
trict, preached at the M. E. Church in t!ii.-
' citv on the evening of Sunday Oct Mth
j upon the subject of the c-ntenary. year of
Methodism. That church is making active
preparations for the commencement of the
second century of the church in America
under much more favorable opportunities.
The objects contemplated by the Centenary
Board, which have had the matter in charge
for over a year, are numerous. In their
meetiugs some of the highest and most re
spected Bishops have pai ticipated, and it is
understood that all the churches of the land
will take a lively interest in furtherance of
their plans. The objects oe the church are
specified in ten headings, eight of which are
educational, and the establishment of sev
eral theological schools are contemplated,
one of which will be upou the Pacific Coat.
In conjunction with this it is proposed to lay
the foundation for an educational fund, to
render assistance when needed to educa
tional institutions and save them from sacri
fice. Another fund is provided for assist
ance to indigent ministers, their widows,
and children. The church has been back
ward until Hte, regarding theological
schools, but the next y ear will witness the
inauguration of many of them.
An Oil Mill. Among other new
enterprises which promise to be undertaken
in this city speedily, we are informed upon
good authority that belorelong an oil mill
will be in operation There are great in
ducements for such an establishment, in
connection with the new paper mill. The
cultivation of flax will receive a great im
petus upon tbe commencement of this enter
prise. Drowned. Lewis Leopolt.a Gei-s
man employed in the Woolen Factory at
this city, was drowned on Thursday, 18th, in
the river at this city. His mind had been
wandering for several days, and he probably
committed suicide. The body has not been
recovered, although much time has been
spent in looking for it.
Still They Come. Our friends
Dr. J. L. Barlow, Sheriff Burns, E. B. Kelly.
and B. C. Lewis, have again placed us under
obligations for lists of yearly subscribers.
Thank vou, gentlemen. The larger the sub

Dedication Ball. By permission
of the directors on Thursday evening, the
11th inst., the new paper mill building was
opened to the Oregon City Brass Band, and
dedicated by a public ball, which passed off
quite agreeably, notwithstanding the storm
which raged outside.
Circuit Court. The October
term of the Circuit Court for Clackamas
Couuty, Hon. E. D. Shattuck Judge, ad
journed on Thursday evening. Several
cases were disposed of, which we shall give

WEEKLY COMMEKCIAI. REVIEW.
OjHceof the Weekly Enterprise,
Oregon Citv, October 26th, 1866.
By the steamer Pa-cific which arrived at
Portland on the 24th we hav? dates from
San Francisco to the 20th, and from New
York to Sept. 21st.
The New York money market was easy
throughout, and loans to the Stock Exchange
were made at 4 a 5 per cent, the majority of
transactions being at the lower rate, while
first class commercial paper was freely taken
at 5 a 6 percent. Notwithstanding the ac
tivity of trade in all its branches, such was
the abundance of money that very little
credit was asked for, and hence the amount
of paper making wa small. In the dry
goods trade there had been a large businees
doing for some weeks, and although the do
mestic manufacturers were marketing their
goods as fast as they could and the foreign
importations continued heavy almost be
yond example, the demand kept pace fully
with the supply and domestic fabrics are re
ported scarce. Prices, meanwhile, will re
main about steady.
One of our leading commercial exchanges,
speaking with regard to business at this time
in New York, says:
The hotels are crowded with buyers from
every section, those ttom the South and
Southwest predominating. The solid, sub
stantial business men are thus rapidly
cementing the Union, in spite of the politi
cians and demagogues, and it is somewhat
surprising to note the general good feeling
and fraternization which is every where man
ifest on the part: of "Northerners" and
"Southerners From the manner in which
they tnnsart business, and the mutual re
spect which is manifest, it would scarcely be
believed that the two sections were so latelyr
at war, or that the peace ot the country is
still threatened by demagogues. Commerce
and trade are the best guarantees for con
tinued peace, and the business men Norih
and South are by far the best " reconstruc
tionists" to be found. Their interests are
identical, and they have a common interest
in the ir aintenance of harmony and in the
perpetuation of the Union. Hence the coun
try is in a fair way of being " reconstructed"
on a firm and lasting basis, if only the poli
ticians and other disturbing elements can
but be kept do wn.
The markets of San Francisco are very ac
tive, according to onr reports, and rates are
generally higher. Wheat and Flour con
tinue in active request for export at harden
ing prices, while Oats and Barley are more
sought after at current rates.
The markets of Portland are unusually
dull, iu consequence of the bulk of the fall
trade with the mining regions being past.
The barks A. A. Eld ridge and Jane A. Falkin
harg have been preparing forcargos for the
Saudwich Islands during the past week,
and the Alfred Crosby has also taken a cargo
for Victoria, besides which the regular lines
of steamers have taken more or less bread
stuffs for California which created a little
activity for some days. As will be seen by
reference to the advertising columns Messrs.
McCraken, Merrill & Co., are yet taking
freight and passengers for Honolulu, by
both the Eldridge and talkinhu g, A No. 1.
It is gratifying to witness the progress
making in the trade with Honolulu. We
understand that a permanent arrangement
has now been effected by which Messrs. Mc
Craken, Morrill & Co. will receive and dis
patch with regularity, ships in this trade as
they formerly did the packets in the San
Franciscu trade. Three vessels are already
employed. The same firm have given notice
that they have engaged in a direct trade with
New York. The fast sailing bark Whitlr,
will leave New York for Portland about the
10th of next month. This is decided'y what
is wanted forour State. We see it stated in
the Bull: tin- of recent date, by the New York
commercial correspondent, that several clip
per ships have been chartered and were be
ing dispatched to the Columbia river with
freight for Montana Territory the purchas
ers and charterers being Montana merchants
who have become satisfied that the route via
St. Louis i not so practicable for thir pur
poses as that via Portland and the Columbia
Considering that the Enterprise is but
just started we have no very fruitful sources
from which to glean information regarding
commercial matters, but when our list of
exchanges is arranged and in order we shall
gie more particular attention to these sub
jects. Of market quotations for the current
week we have none.
United States Armory. During
the year 1804 a commission appointed by the
Secretary of War, for the purpose of select
ing sites for the accommodation of the gen
eral government in its work of crushing the
rebellion, recommended a spot on the west
bank of the Willamette opposite this city, as
the most suitable place upon the coast of the
Pacific for the erection of buildings adapted
to the manufacture of munitions of war.
Had not hostilities have so soon terminated,
after this recommendation was made, we
should possibly now have witnessed the
works in full operation, and observe frequent
shipments of massive guns, taken from the
raw material which yet remains buried ihro'
out the surrounding hills. However, thrje
may yet be such an institution here. If Mr.
Johnson, by his sty le of " making treason
odious" should bring about such another in
ternal war as that through which the coun
try has but recently passed, Brother Jona
than wiP again straighten up his leau, lank
form, and pointing to various localities, say
" That at Oregon City must be improved.''

growing, slowly at mst, but durmg the past
summer its progress became more rapid. It
was giving her considerable pain, when, on
the 17th of last month she went under treat
ment by Dr. Heuley of Portlaud. By his
method of treatment the entire cancer was
removed from the sound flesh, and on the
23th of the same month it came away without
pain. The sore is fast healing up, and I hope
a complete cure is effected. Her suffering
for the first 24' hours under treatment was
considerable. She has suffered but little
since, and is now entirely free from pain.
Dr. Henley : The above is at your service,
to publish it you think proper. I direct to
you and to Air. Starkweather. Should you
be the first to get this please let him see it.
If you do not know himplease enquire. He
is in the Legislature. Yours, 4c,
