Oregon City, Nov. 24th, 1SCC 5:4w
Bctxetix Correspondence. An occa
sional correspondent of the San Francisco
Bulletin, writing from Oregon recently, paid
our city the following tribute: "ThePuext
town in importance to Portland, iu Oregon,
is Oregon City, which is situated on the
right bank about 25 miles from the confluence
of the Willamette and Columbia, and just
below the falls. This is the oldest settle
ment in the State. Being situated at the ex
treme limit to which vessels from the ocean
tiould ascend, it became very early a trading
"point with the natives. The romnntie and
the practical are finely blende! m the ap
pearance of the town and its environs. The
falls of the Willamette, an excellent view of
which may be xbtitaed from a bluff over
looking the city east, are about 40 leet in
height. The water descends into a narrow
chasm, through which it boils and surges
"with a violence nothing can withstand.
Oregon City has net until recently been of
much promise, but a fine wooleu factory,
lately established there, has had a wonder
ful effect upon the condition of the town. A
machine shop has been started, and another,
as well as, a paper mill, are being erected,
and considering that the water power is
equal to any on the continent, the conclusion
Is natural that the place will sooner ocjater
become the Lowell of Oregon, if not of the
coast. One of the most interesting features
here is the basin, as it is called, of the Trans-'
portation Company a reservoir constructed
X)f wood, of sufficient size to contain a lare
number of steamboats. Formerly the up
river steamers landed some distance above
the fulls, and passengers and freight were
conveyed from one boat to the other on a
railroad about three-fourths of a mile in
length. By building this basin just below
the falls, which do not extend the entire
width of the stream, the necessity for the
portage is obviated, and a warehouse spans
the distance between thStwo landing places.
A lockicin contemplation which will enable
them .to run the same steamers the whole
length of the river."
The Avror.v Colony. The practical
benefits arising from the well directed efforts
of a colony of people in Oregon, may beob
served by the workings of the colonj- in the
southern part of this county and the north
ern part of Marion county at what is known
as "Dutchtown" Aurora, proper. The
main body of Slhis colony was loft in the
State of Missouri, but they are soon expected
to join their fiiendsiiere. During the war
they were situated in the midst of the
ctroublcs, and suffered much during its con
tinuance. This induces them to move to
Oregon, where their associates have been
lont, settled and are perfectly satisfied. The
coming emigration will bring an accession
to the wealth and increase the number of
our German friends to fifteen hundred, and
more sociable and worthy inhabitants can
not easily be found. The chief factor of the
settlement, Dr. Kile, received a fine planing
machine from SanoFrancisco, on the last trip
"of, the steamship Montana. The people ate
very thriving condition and pursue
uiuwiuuua iv nil
.There is nothing more valuable than their
saw mill and sash and door factory attached.
J)r. Kile, since his residence in Oregon, has
shown himself nn able business man as well
'tis a good physician and governor among his
Woolen Mills op the Pacific Coast.
There are six woolen mills in operation in
Oregon, which consume annually about
3, 02.r,000 pounds of wool. The Trullinger
'factory of this county, and a small factory in
Douglas county have never before been taken
into estimate. They will work up about
50,000 lbs- f wool annually. In California
two large mills are in operation now, one is
in process of erection, and another contem
plated. We have no accurate information of
the amount of wool annually consumed in
California, but it will probably equal no
more the amount consumed in Oregon.
This would give 2,050,000 pounds of wool,
made into blankets, casimeres, flannels, &c.
These goods command ready sale, and are
considered superior to the Eastern manu
A Genvink Impostor. When Cook, the
man on crutches, was here, he visited us, aS
was stated last week. While in our presence
he told at least six lies one of which Was
that) the Unionist of Salem would " taEe
Tiack" on Monday last what it had said about
"him the previous week. , " The poor ye al
ways have among you," but as to this poor
fellow, we warn the public against him. No
doubt he is a cripple, but that need not be an
excuse for his forever beginr, lying, and
deceiving people, lie no doubt has much
o more solid cash than many upon whom he
'calls for aid.
Winter is Upon Us. Our friend
J. H. Gist, of Canemah', has reminded us in
the pleasante'st manner possible, that
Barren winter, wi h his nipping cold,
5s upon us. From this dav henceforward
tipfil the vernal equinox, the days will b
urear, and to add protection to shelter it will
to "necessary to have wood. This, Mr. Gist
ia prepared to furnish
He will bring thee this)
Yea, and furred moss beside,
To winter thy corse.
SrnccE Pails. Our whilom friend
11. G. Aldrich, formerly of St. Paul, Minne
sota, we found recently Bt Astoria getting
out timber for a large and extensive pail
and tub factory at Sau Francisco. The
thought occurred to us that if California
must call on Oregon for the raw materials in
this branch of business that it would be just
us well to start a factory at home. California
Is now old enough to take care of herself,
and Oregon ought to do better than to ship
raw "materials even for the making of spruce
tubs, when she has such valuable facilities
for thfeTpurposescp? manufacturing as mav
be obtained at Oregon Citv.
Paper -Stock. The Paper Manufactur
ing Company of this city now have on hand
abont 400,000 pounds of material with which
to begin Operations. A portion of the ma
chinery has been fitted and tried. It works
in the most satisfactory manner.
City Councii The regular monthly
meeting of the City Council will be held
vs monday evening.
- . .
Oregon City Merchants. There are few
places of the size0of Oregon City that can
boast of more enterprising merchants.
Commencing at the upper end of Main
street, we may enumerate, in lie dry goods
trade, six firms with whom the public can
deal on as favorable terms as any in the
State, not excepting Portland. These are :
Wm. Barlow ; Charman Bros. ; S. Acker
man ; I. Selling : J. R. dlalston, and J.
Myers & Bro. Their purchases are made
in the best markets of the Country, and as
corroborative of our statements, let the
reader but give them a call. For grocer
ies call upon Wortman & Sheppard. E.
B. Kelly, L. Diller, E. D. Kelly, or like en
ergetic citizens. For stov es and tin-ware,
look at the stock of C. W. Pope & Co. For
books, etc., don't forget that pioneer of
the "craft,' ' Mr. J. Fleming. Our assur
ance to our readers is, that if they will fol
low our directions we will nevermisguide
tb?m. We are posted.
Lvcecm Organization. The projected
Lyceum in this city was orzanized on last
Tuesd ay evening, by the election of officers
as follows: Thomas Charman President ;
Maj. Magoon, II. Foster Vice Presidents :
B. Killen Secretary. A question wtaa pro
posed by MrfDuncan, viz : Resolved, That
Chinese labor is beneficial to Oregon who
also surprised his friends by taking the
lead enthusiastically in support of the ques
tion. Mr. S. D. Pope assumed' the lead in
the negative. The subject would be con
tinued last evening. From the fact that
there were present some who do not take a
general interest in the affairs of this city,
or encourage societies of this character
very greatly, it was surmised that the
springing of this question was intended
more particularly as a 'feeler' in this com
munity, than for argument time will tell.
Public Houses The card of the
" Bennett House," Salem, appears in our
columns to day. The proprietor, Ex-Gov.
L. Jay S. Turney late of Washington Terri
tory, is now proprietor of the " Bennett,'
and he will most undoubtedly feed and
treat any hungry traveler or pleasucc-seeker
tip-top, who visits Salem, by calling at lhe
"Benhctt." We would also invite the at
tention of our readers to the card of M.
O'Connor, the popular host of the What
Cheer, at Portland. This House is go well
known that not one word of comment is
necessary from us, to induce any who have
ever called there to go again. The Lincoln
House at Portland, is also a Very desirable
Public House. The new proprietor, Mr.
Matthieusen, late of Victoria, is quite atten
tive to his guests, and we recommend his
house to the patronage of the public. Oregon
has some really welt kept ''hotels, and the
above enumerated are three of them.
Chop House. If any of our
friends should ever be so unfortunate a3 to
be left behind at Portland, sometime when
the steamer starts for Oregou City precisely
at the hour, we advise them to seek the chop
house of Mr. Wm. Ilickards, one door smith
of Washington street, on First. He can
"stav your stomachs" with an excellent meal.
And he will "do" you equally as well before
starting for the boat in the morning, if you
will call upon him. C His place is kept open
TnE River. The Willamette is now in
excellent boating condition. The Fannie
ration, Active, and other steamers of the
Company, now leave Oregon City regular
ly for above, every morning except Sun
days, going up as far as Corvallis at least.
The fine new steamer Alert, Capt. Kellogg,
made a special trip to Portland on Wedne; -day,
and we hear will take the place of the
Senator next week." The boat how leaves
Portland for Oregon City at 7 o'clock a. m.
Starr Whisky. Messrs. L. M.
Starr & Co. of Portland, having passed the
minutia, and at great expense refitted their
establishment for the manufacture of the
celebrated brand of Starr whisky, are now
engaged largely in the making of an article
which, if people wiU drink," is recommended
for us. Being home made aild from a firm
with the reputation of the one referred to,
Starr whisky certainly ought to be looked
upon in a favorable light.
Tiianksgivlng I) at. Thanksgiving day,
the 29th, rraj observed in this city with,
one accord. There3 were services in most
of the churches, and the attendance was
large. Business throughout tWeitywas
generally suspended, and the family hearth
and festive board were both duly regarded.
Something Nice. The lady readers of
the Enterprise will find something really
nice by calling at Ackerman's. He has
.lust opened a case new style cloth cir
culars, imported expressly for the ladies
who desire to appear well".
Good Templars Festival. The Lodge
of Good Templars in this city have recent
ly held two festivals at their hall, the prc-
ceeds will be devoted to the furnishing of
the hall in excellent stvle.

Dr. Borp.Nf:: Last Winter 1 was nearly
dead, by an attack of inllammatory rheuma
tism. I suffered the most excruciating
pains for about five weeks, without an v hope
of relicfj when a friend hearing of my illness,
called to see me, and assured me that if I
wculd stop "drugging and dosing" and go
to you, that you would have me walking
about the streets Tn three days. Sure enough,
although I was utterly helpless, and con
veved to your house in a carriage, arid car
ried into it by three stout men, and by them
lifted into the bath, yet, on coming out of it,
I largely assisted myself, doing much to
wards dressing, and", without assistance,
walked from the bath to the carnage. On
the fourth day I discharged my carriage and
walked, with a friend's aid, the entire dis
tance to 30ur house (nearly a mile); and
home again, and so on until cured. I ,felt
myself a well man. And new I am happy
;to do you this little service; gf publicly cer
tifying to the simple truth, leaving it to uo
its work among my friends and acquaint
ances as may change to see this.

this case, and shown that neither relapse rior

treating diseases without medicine.
G. M. BOURNE,
o Water.Cure Physician,
c JTij. 10; ilasbnic Temple, Post street!
Sacramento) April SO, 18651
Dr. G. M. Bourne Dear Sir : It is with
pleasure and satisfaction that 1 now let you
know of my good health. Looking back
upon what Fhave passed through, it seems Q
as if I had been lilted from the grave, and I
think i my duty to acknowledge to you and
the world "the benefit I derived froji water
treatment as administered by you in yourQ
celebrated baths. It was in August .istf4,
when disease developed itself with a severe
Cough. I then took medicines'; getting
worse with. chills, fevers, loss of strength,
aiid" was pronounced consumptive. This
set me to thinking; and finally I determined
to leave my business and go to the Sandwich
Islands, having.been informed that I could q
not be cured here. I went to San Francisco,
and while waiting for a ship called upon Dr.
Bourne, who stated that a trip to the island
would probably result disastrously, wa
wholly unnecessary, as I could be speedily
cured at his establishment. I placed myself
nnder iis treatment, ,and in .one week wao
so mucli improved I thought I could risk re
turning hbirie and do my duty as Engineer
on the Central Pacific Railroad. The Dor
tor objected, but I thought I knew better,
iind returned to duty. In about two week
my cough returned, and I kept getting
worse, and contrary to Dr. Bourne's injunc
tion never to take medicine again, committed o
that folly, and soon was so completely run
down that 1 could scarcely walk ; so, as a
last resort, I concluded once more to try iftb
Water Cure. 1 went) to San Francisco few
of my friends expecting me to return; in
fact I thought my return doubtful. On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
14, lb5) I was not. able to get into the bath
without assistance but in a few days I began
to recover myself again. I remained with
him only six weeks, when I felt a "wiser
and better man," without the aid of medi
cine. I have eow been at work several
weeks, and find that I am gaining every day
and at present bid fair to be stouter than
ever before. Persons visiting the Doctor,
establishment find it just what it should be,
both in the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Depart
ments, and I cannot say tOo much in praise
of the Doctor's kind attentions to his pa
tients. This letter I wiite for the benefit of all the
afflicted, to be" used as the Doctor decides,
and should it be the means of directing any
to his care and treatment who (as they as
suredly will find relief, I will be paid for
my troobie- JAMES CAMPBELL;
Engineer Central Pacific Railroad;
Sax Francisco, Aug. 22, 16(55.
Advised by the undersigned, Mr. James
Campbell, of the Central Pacific Railroad,
(who was then in a post deplorable Mate of
ill health) placed himself under the care of
Dr. Bourne, the Water Cure Physician.
Some six months afterward he visited the
city, when I accidentally, met him at Dr;
Bourne's establishment, and am happy to
say, restored to the enjoyment of good
health, and in fine spirits.
Dr. Bourne treats all diseases of the
throat, (;hest and lungs which Includes dip
theria, bronchitis, incipient consumption
pleurisy,, croup, etc., with great success.
Great relief is afFordcl m advanced stages of
consumption. Rheumatism, paralysis-, neu
ralgia, fever and ague, dropsy, etc , etc., arc
also cured quickly, pleasantly and economy
icaBy. f6 medicine whatever.
. Dr. Bourne takes the liberty to publish thd
above as many persons had prophesied hia
relapse into his former condition, on return
ing toliis duties, of the writer of an " Inter
esting Letter," whose statements concerning
the cure of a well defined case of consump
tion have recently attracted co much atten
tion to the Water Cure, as improved uporl
and practised by Dr. Bourne. This addi
tional testimony must prove satisfactory to
all reasonable minds. It should be remem
bered that Dr. Bourne uses no medicines
whatever, and that his patients almost uni
versally arc those who failed to receive re
lief from the medical practitioners ; yet they
are cured with great rapidity, and in a pleas;
ant and agreeable manner. "No. 10, Masonic
