Flour Shipments to the East. The San
Francisco agent of the Pacific Mail Steam
ehip Company seems disposed to do all ia Lis
Dower to encourage the people io make lib
eral shipments of Flour via the Isthmus.
The charges for small lots is $ 1 75 gold per
iim lbs But contract rates for round lots,
neatly rut up in bags and covered with gun
nies 1 5" per U'O IDs., or say to New York,
3 Per barrel, m gold. At this rate of
freight extra Flour can be sold in .New
York Denver, at $15 per barrel, currency.
It will be it nienibeted that an enterprising
merchant of San Francisco recently shipped
'5 barrels as an experiment. 1 he hour ar
I rived ui good order, and hs agent was of
IViOl 15 5U per bbl. for & but refused the
iffer as he could do better by sending it to
Philadelphia. At the price otlered it would
return a fair profit on the myuey invested
This speculation rather reverses the order o!
things as thev existed only a few years ago.
"'The Pacific "States cau now supply New
York with flour as cheap as the Western
Slate But little more than teu years ago
California depended fo- her bread upon for
eign couutries. The nierch ni referred to
has since sent 500 barrels, which has proba
bly reached New York by this time. Our
information regarding the San Francisco
wheat and Hour markets, is that prices are
droopinz- This will a fiord better facilities
to shipi)ers East, but when we add that j
prices of freight from Portland to San Fran
tisco are tending to an advance, it aflords
little consolation to the farmers of Ore-on
w-ho hav&iuterest amid a hoje of disposing
of their surplus. The matter of packing
flour in barrels is hftomiwg quiten imD
portant feature, and w e believe thatKe Im
perial Mills of this cityswere the first to un
dertake it. Wagons", loaded with barrels,
pass through our streets almost daily, and
some of these may fir their wav East. We
are sure that no" better Hour is made than
that which they will contain.
Tekuible Casualty. On last Monday
evening two 3nen, Mr. James McLaughlin,
q lorry man, and Mr. Patrick Turner, who had
gone beyond safe bounds in setting t.ieir tUh
Sets beloYv the falls at this city were drown
ed. Thiy were in alight skill' and ran from
the eddy out into the swift current which
they had scarcely struck, when the skiff" was
caught by one of the wUiris that are always
surging there at high water, and instantly
went uuwii stern tirst. The men and the
boat disappeared lor a moment but soou
came up a few rods down stream and the
pit'ii swam tor some time. One of them kept
on the sui face so remarkably well that the
j;evt.jtos though, for a time that tie could
ho. d out till Succor ?onldsreach him, but he
finally, wtit-u neat ly opposite toe warenoue,
sank and wusseeu no more. The Senator
was jut arriv ing when the accident occur
red, and Cant. Keliogg ran her up (juto the
swift w uter, and hid the men stand oy with
take poles to rescue the uissortuuate men,
lut ttiev sank before the .steamer reached
them. Tlie bodies have nut yet been re
Prepaying Postage. For the benefit of
ail whom it may concern, and to show that
the Postmaster is obliged to collect postage
in advance., we quote the following from the
U. S. Mail and P. O. Assistant : " The col-

Oregon Slowness. It igcarcely possible
to over estimate the importance of having

Lumbering Companies. On a recent visit
to Cauemah we promised io speak more in
relation to the works of the Canemah Lum
bering Company, George Johnson, Joseph
Hedges and J. T. s Taylor, Directors. Tne
mill of tins company is a large oue, with a
capacity for sawing from 5,Ouo to 7,000 feet
of lumber per day. The power is derived
from one of the portable engines of Wood k
Rami's patent, thirty horse-power, and the
saws, of which there are two, (circular,) are
adapted to cutting a log of anv diameter
sueu as may be found about "here. The
company also have one of Putnam's pateut
planing machines, winch will dress lumber
five inches thick by 24 inches in width.
The will of this company is Su by 40 feet in
size, built of timbers 14 inches square, in a
very solid and substantial manner. The
mill of Messrs. Mnler & Pease, recently com
pleted ou the western side of the P. T. Com
pany's breakwater, derives its power from a
water-wheel. Ji has a capacity for furnish
ing from 5,000 to 7,Ouo feet per day. This
company manufacture a large quantity of
box- tyg packing apples, and soon a lath
machine, and saws fo remaking iuto wood
the slabs of the mill, Will be in operation.
The saws used for lumbering are circular,
and one of Woodward's patent plainers is
employed. We have been unable to visit
tbeWl of W. & 11. 8. Puck, on the Clacka
mas, but shall do so soon. We have no cor
rect knowledge of the number of nails in
tne county, although there are several. Tiift
)swego milling company have facilities tor
manufacturing an average ot 7,000 feet daily
for the year. The lumber of this company
is principally disposed of in Portland. That
of tue three companies pieviously mentioned
is principally sold and consumed in this city
Washington Territort. Governor Pick
ering, in his message to the legislature of
Washington Territory, points to valuable
agricultural lands on various outrageously

Dr. G. CM. Uoi'itxu Dear Sir is with
pleasure and satisfaction that I now letvou
know of my good health. Looking back
upon what I Jiave passed through, it seaaiff
us if I had been lifted-from the grave, and 1
think it my dutyrto acknowledge to you and
the world the benefit I derived fro ji water
treatment as administered by you in your
celebrate! baths. It was in August lSo'4,
when disease developed itself with a' severe
cough. 1 then took (Jnedicmes, getting
woise with chills, fevers, loss of strength,
and was pronounced consumptive. This
set me to thinking, and finally I determined
tfeleave my business and go to the Sandwich
Islands, having been informed that I could
not be cured here. I went to San Francisco,
rani while waiting for a ship called upon Dr.
Bourne, who stated that a trip to tht itlapdd
would probably result disastrously, wa
wholly unnecessary, as I conld be speedily
cured at his establishment. I placed myself
nrrder his treatment, and in one week wa
so much improved I thought I could risk re
turning home and do uiV duty" as Engineer'
on the Central Pacific Itailroad. The Doc
tor objected, but I thought 1 knew better,
and returned to duty. In about two weeks
my cough returned, and I kept getting
w(fse, and contrary to Dr. Bourne's injunc
tion never to take medicine again, committed
that folly, and soon was so completely run
down that 1 could scarcely walk; so, as a
last resort, I concluded once rioreto try the
Water Cure. I went to San Francisco lew
of my friends expecting me to return; in
fact I thought my return doubtful On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
14, 1605) I was not able to get into the bath
without assistance, but in a fewdaj-s I bega
to recover myself again. I remained with

This letter I wnte for the benefit of alf the
airiicted, to be used as the Doctor decides,
and should it be the iseas of directing any
to his care and treatment who (as they as
suredly will) lind relief. I will be paid for
my trouble. JAMES CAMPBELL.

Advised by the uiiderstgned, .tlr. James
Campbell, of the Central Pacific Railroad,
(who was then in a most deplorable state of
ill health) placed himielf under the care of
Dr. 'ouruer the Water Care Physician.
Some six months afterward he visited the
city, when I accidentally met hiin at Dr.
Bourne's establishment, and am happy to
say, restored to the enjoyment of Ood
health, and in line spirits.
$f" Dr. Bourne treats all diseases of the
throat, chest aud lungs which includes dip
theria, bronchitis, incipient consumption,
pleurisy, croup, etc., with great success.
Great relief is afforded in advanced stages of
consumption. Rheumatism, paralvcis, neu
ralgia, fever and ague, dropsy, etc , etc., arc
al-o cured quickly, pleasantly and ecoiAiiii
ically. No medicine whatever.
Dr. Biurne takes lhe liberty to publish the
above ai many persons had prophesied his
relapse into hi former condition, on return
ing to his duties, of the writer of an " Inter
esting Letter," whose statements concerning
the care of a well defined case of consumn
tion have recently attracted much atten
tion to the "Water Cure, as improved upon
and practised by Dr. Bourne. This addi
tional testimony must prove satisfactory te
al! reasonable minds. It should be remem
bered' that Dr. Bourne uses no medicine
whatever, and that his patients almost uni
versally are those who failed to receive re
lief from the medical practitioners; yet tber
j are cured with great rapidity, and in." plea
