A Love Seng.
O. tell me, ve leaves that are sighing
Your brief life away in the gale,
Is there hope for this human heart, dying,
And dving. like thee, with a wail
May I look for the fair oue'3 repenting,
For peace to my word-weary brain?
Will fate, in some hour of repenting,
Give back my lost idol again?
I hear but a murmur of sadness,
Reproachful and plaintively low,
0 -h- fr with (me whi-per of gladness
The aoul that has trusted ye so .
1 weep lor ttmt guilty word spoken
Which swept my bright vision away,
Does she sigh o'er the sacred the broken ?
O, autumn leaves, tell me, I pray.
Does my love wander here with another,
And sit "in thy shade at his knee?
What is it ye say to each other,
Yet will not reveal unto me?
Hoft whisper, ye leaves ot September,
Ye catch every sigh that she breathes ;
Do you think she has ceased to remember?
O, tell roe, ye fast falling leaves.
The world's smiling charms would have
Yet laid I my heart at her feet ;
And loving friends hovered around me,
But her smile than all was more sweet.
Behold me vith broken heart bleeding,
Rnating thv mournful est sigh !
Why will ye be dumb to mv pleading?
U, cruel leaves, speak ere 1 die.
'Tis well ye should struggle and wither,
U, leaves of the forest so brown.
And drift away, Heaven knows whither,
Till human feet trample ye down ;
Ye know not regret nor repining,
Nor love that lives on without hope ;
I leave ye, mid autmn's declining
To die on the mountains' bleak slope !

Gatherings of people are common
and frequent in our country, yet there
is in none of them that degree ot uu
terest represented as is the case here
to-day, and I trust that eveiy lover
of the industry of their country will
feel a very great gratification in be-
holding so many proofs of the toil,
energy, taste and skill of the bone
and sinew ot the land.
Parliamentary and legislative bod-
ies meet for the purpose of consider
ing and making law s for the supposed
central good. Convocations ot ec
clesiastical and religious associations
assemble to deliberate upon the in-
terest of their particular sects and
their views of Christianity. Courts
are held to enforce laws and settle
die uted points among individuals.
Political conventions and meetings
convene to make candidates fr office
and otherwise to advance the inter
ests ot their respective parties and
party men. And but few thi igs of a
public or general nature is done os
sought to be done but what some kind
of public notoriety is taken or made
of it. In ail these, much learning
and ability may be brought and dis
played ; fine hair-breadth theories
and dogmas discussed and laid down
and given out to the public as rules
of action for the supposed and m
tended good of community. Such
collections of people have been com.'
inon in almost ah ages rnd in all civ
ilized parts of the world. But until
quite recently has tne laboring classes
assembled as we are here to-day,

their usefulr.ess to soci'wy represent
ed, not by words, but by unmistaka
ble deeds. Contrast for a moment
the necessity for and paramount in
fluence thai th product of the labor
er has over all other engagements of
life. The law giver may make the
most wholesome and judicious laws
that the wants of the most enlight
ened civilization demands. The pure
and all sublime principles of Chris
tianity may be preached in their in
tended simplicity, and their excellen
cies practiced and lived up to
by all mankind ; and all may be
what is termed ripe scholars, vet
without food and raiment, everything
else would cease, and all would be as
sounding brass and tinkling of a
Among the first commands given
by our Creator to man. was. that he
should work that he might eat bread;
and Paul, the great Apostle of the
Christian religion, said to his breth
ren of that day, that if any would not
work- neither should they eat If
this doctrine was enforced to-day, nnd
in our own land, there would be many
busy-bodies turned to usefulness, in
instead of creating strife and discord
among men ; and then the tax upon
the labor of the country, necessary
foi it maintenance and proper de.
Yelopmpnt, would fall" much lighter
upon those who now perform it.
Many inventions are sought out by
man to avoid vcrking for their t wo
snoBistence ; and this, perhaps, nas
been the case in all ages of the world
and in all countries ; and the more of
Jhisch?s that any country may ha?e,
m - -a I
the more of strife and discord will
that country be cursed with, both in
church and state.
The schisms in church and state
that cost the labor ot the country so
much blood and treasure, are genera
ally the results of actions of the un
employed. Hence, We can see Ihe
wisdom of God in decreeing that, by
the sweat of one's face should we eat
bread all the days f eur lives ; and
also the justness of Paul to his breth
ren, that if any would not work
neither s-honld thy eat. It is a pity
we have not more following his ex
ample, that with their own labor,
supplying their own wants, and
teaching their followers to study to
be quiet and work with their own
hands. In my judgment, it is out of
the question for an idle soul to be a
good citizen, much le?s any part of a
Christian. Not, that all should be
farmers or producers of the sub.stan
tials of life, or raw material. It is
true in the main that farming and
stock raising of most countries is the
basis to everything el?e, and it is
clearly so in our State to a great ex
tent. Yet it the other branches of
industry of which the interest and
wants of the country demand and its
resources require, ana to which it is
adapted, are neglected and lost S'ght
of, farming and stock raising would
not amount to much in the end.
Then every branch of industry which
tends to the development of our
whole resources, and the happiness,
pleasure and benefit of .he people, is
absolutely called for. and should be
cherished and fostered by every lover
of his country. And the different
professions, trades and occupations
be pursued with intelligence, energy
and industry, very soul should have
a legitimate business and follow it
with an honest purpose, striving to
do his or her part well, for the good
of themselves and the community
Having a climate and soil, timber,
water, water-power, minerals, ana
channels of commerce furnished us by
our Creator, equal, as a whole, if not

be safe in saying, that twenty years
ago the settlement of the Stale had
not more than began in earnest, and
to.day are witnessed all over the set
tied portion of the country much of
the comforts and many of the con
venunces ot civilized lite. We not
only have good and well improved
farms, pas-able roads, bridges and
ferries, but churches, colleges, scliool-
houses, cities, towns and villages all

taontunents ana workshops ap-
proaching almost equal to our pres
present wants, nnd the means of
transportation lully up to our present
demands, at least in the M illutJiett
and Columbia river settlements.
Whilst, in the opinion of some, a
portion of the improvements and en
terprises that exist are monopolies ;
yet if they were sti icken out of ex
istence a material interest of thecoun
try would be injured and a great con
venience to th country cut oft'.
1 had hoped to have been able to
present to you at this time a tolerable
lull statement of our productions nnd
of the woikie.g capacity of the differ
ent nulling and manufacturing estab
lishments in the State, but the want
of time and opportunity on my part
to collect, and .some remissness on
the part of the managers of the estab
hshtmnts to furnish me with such
statements as requested, I cannot do
so to tae exur.t desired.
Among the more worthy and ben
eficial improvements of the State are
the numerous edifices for educational
purposes, whil-t we have, perhaps,
colleges and what is tetmed high
schools enough for present wants.
Yet a great deficiency exists in inter
est by the masses .with common
scnools, where the most of ihe child
ren of the laboring classes must be
educated, if at all. And, per rps,
there is no part of the interest of the
country, considering its importance,
ruore neglected than our common
school syte;n ; and while political
influences control, as they have in
the past, we can hardly promise our
selves a bitter state of affairs in this
The manufacturing establishments
aim machine shops that have been
erected in the last few years in the
State, are of vast importance to the
industry of the same. But a few
years ago we were almost entirely
supplied with many of the articles of
necessity from abroad, that are now
being produced by our own people
and in our own State. The Willam
ette Woolen Mills, the pioneer of the
kind on the const, located within
hearing of this place, is capable ol
consuming 400, 000 pounds of wool
annually, and make 1,000 yards of
cloth daily, employing ninety hands
and paying operatives over $60,000
The Oregon City Mills, the most
substantial of the kind in the State,
is capacitated to w ork 350,000 pom d
of wool yearly, making about 6,()00
yards of cloth weekly, and employs
The EuJe Mills, located at
Brownsville. Linn county, works fifty
operatives, making 3.500 yards of
cloth weekly, and consumes loU.UUU
pounds of wool annually.
The Ellendale Mill,in Polk county,
near Dallas, has a capacity to work
twenty hands, using 75,000 pounds
of wool yearly, and can turn out 300
yards of cloth daily, and make 100
pounds of yarn.
The iron foundries that are already
in existence form a very interesting
partot the imj- rovementsof the State,
and add much to the interest and
convenience of the people. The most
extensive of which are located at
Portland, where the most simple
manufacture of iron or casting can
be made up to all the fixtures of aj
river steamer. I am informed that
the Oregon Iron Works, at Portland,
works about fifty men, daily con
suming about six tons of raw mater
ial, and turns out work to the value,
of $1,000 for the same length of time.
At this place, Oregon City, the
Dalles, ana at Albany there are iron
works, but not so extensive as those
at Portland ; yet have the capacity
and do a great amount of work, equal
to the wants of their several localities.
The Oswego Iron Works, in coursp
of erection, for the manufacture of
iron from the ore, is one of the most
important enterprises of the State
Also the paper mill at Oregon City
cannot be considered second to any
in telling the future prosperity. And
not the least, by far, in interest to
the . resources of the State is the con
templated oil mill and rope factory
at the Capital ; and the fl tx on exhi

common interest, and which t hi
laboring classes will aid with sub

we consider that this is a different
climate and soil from any that we
have been acquainted with, and the
most of our farming done in a differ
ent way to the manner of farming in
our old localities, the necessity is
The agricultural interest being, as
all admit, of the first importance, it
is strange that so many men engaged
in it are so indifferent as to the best
mode and i; auner of pursuing the
same, or do so little to advance the
common interest, or take such a shal
low view of the necessity of a paper
devoted to the interest of the labor
ing classes. Religious, political and
other pursuits would not think of do

objects of far less importance, and
the money of the people bestowed on
much mo e unworthy subjects ; and
1 am sorry to say that more attention
is and has been paid by the present
and past Legislatures to the interest
of party and the success of the re
spective parties of the day than lo
the substantial wants of the country.
That exhibitions at fairs have been
and are beneficial to a country there
can be no question, and are destined
to awaken new impulses of enter
prise and improvement. They are
in the hands and are controlled in the
main by the working people, of the
day ; and to question their result for
good is an insult to the intelligence
and iudustry to the laboring classes.
No practical, inquiring mind can help
learning something new and useful,
when seeing and examining the vari
ous articles and stock on exhibition.
And then man needs a closer ac
quaintance with man the world over,
and no place furnishes a betur op
portunity than fairs for furnishing
men with the intelligent and useful
of the country, and at the same time
much valuable information m.-iy be
learned by interchange of ideas in
relation to every branch of industry.
It is true objections are raised by
sme, and fault found by others with
a part of the exercises ; but this is
the case witti everything else that is
done, and it is absolutely out of the
question to satisfy the notions of all in
any enterprise whatever. Coming

Extract from his letter, published in the
Baptist Missionary Magazine:
"For the first time since I have been in In
dia, I have been stung by a scorpion. I went
out this morning to my exercises, as usual,
at early dawn, and haying occasion to use
an old box, on taking oS' the cover I put my
hand on a scorpion, which immediately re
sented the insult by thrusting its sting into
the palm of my hand. The instantaneous
and severe pai-n which darted through the
system is quite incredible; what an awfully
virulent poison their sting must contain ! 1

SEWIHS MACHINE GO.;
Manufacturers of the Celebrated Re
versible feed Sewing Machines !
Making four distinct stitches !
WIltLE a large number of Machines have
been offered to the Public, some of
which possess points of excellence and ac
knowledged merit,- we have long felt what
others have experienced, the necessity of a
Machine more perfect in its mechanical
structure, combining in the highest degree
simplicity u'itJi durabilityt and tf-hile capable
of doing a greater range of work, one that
could be easily understood and comprehend
ed by all.
To supply a Sewing Machine free from thd
objections attaching to others, has been nd
easy task; for we had not only to surpass
others as they appeared years ago, but also
as improved Irorn time to time, by mors re
This we claim has been accomplished by
the liberal expenditure of capital, and the
patient, untiring labor of years ; and in pre-T
senting our Machine to the public, tve shall
make strong assertions respecting its mer
its, which we are prepared to substantiate
in every particular.
Discarding the Chain and Loop, or Knit
stitches, we adopt the loch Stitch, (alike oil
both sides of the fabric,) which is regarded,
by the masses as best suited to all kinds of
work. But to meet objections sometime
urged against this lavorite stitch, we have'
added the Knot, Double Lock and Double
Knot, either of which is stronger and more
elastic than the Lock ; thus enabling the op
erator to select a stitch perfectly suited tC
every grade of fabric, and w here necessary
sew seams much s ronger than it is possible
to do bv hand.
The "FLORENCE makes four different
stitches with as ranch ease as ordinary Ma
chines make one, and with as little ma
chine ryt k
The result of repeated tests has been aC
we could desire, and from its first introduc
tion the FLORENCE has gained hosts cf
friends, nnd been regarded a ho useJiold ne
cessity; proving that the public fully appre
ciate the utility, beivty, and durability com
bined in the FLORENCE Machine.
We claim for the FLORENCE the
following advantages over any and all Sew
ISF" It makes four different stitcJies, L-flr,
Knot, Double Lock, and Double Knot, on one
and the same Machine. Each stitch being
alike on both sides ot the fabric.
Every Machine has the reversible
eed motion, which enables the operator, by
simply turning a thumb screw, to have the
work run either to the right or left, to stay
any part of the seam, or fasten the ends
of seams, without turning the fabric.
Changing the length of stitch, and
from one kind ot stitch to another, can read
ily be done while the Machine is in motion.
ZSf The needle is easily adjusted.

where quiet is necessary.
its motions are all positive ; there are
no springs to get out of order, and its sim
plicity enables the most inexperienced to
?f It does not require finer thread on
the under than for the upper side, and will
sew across the heaviest seams, or from one
to more thicknesses of cloth, without change
of needle, tension, or breaking thread.
irf The hemmer is easily adjusted and
will turn any width of hem desired.
I:SF No other Machine will do so great a
range of work r.s the FLORENCE.
It will hern, gather, tell, bind, braid,
quilt, and gather and sow on a ruffle at the
The taking up of the slack thread is not
perlormed by the irregular contraction of a
wire coil or uncertain operation of wire
levers. The precision and accuracy with
which the FLORENCE dra-s the thread in
to the cloth, is uuapproached in any Sewing
Machine hitherto offered in the market.
We furnish each Machine with uBarnum:s

is of incalculable value, especially to iuex

Elias Howe, jr., and his associates, and our

While possessing the above and many
other advantages, the Florence is sold at
corresponding prices with other first class
Machines, and a carelul examination will
fully substantiate all that we have claimed
tor it, aud justify the assertion we now make,
