The Oswego Iiiox Works. Mr. Geo. II.
BeldQi recently gave an article upon the
Oswego IronCWorks of this county, which
contains some very interesting statistics.
Mr. Belden is superintendent of the works,
and conseqsnlly knows where.;! he
speaks. He says : S. Ladd. Esq.. is
President ofthe company, and among lfs
shareholder are numbered soige of
our best buMiioss meji, also m ban
Francisco and New York City. The
capital stock is S5;MUKK. This is the fir.
Bnvdunii furnace erected on the 1'acifiY
cof st. andis situated at Oswego, on the
lft bank of the Willamette river, eight
miles fouth of Portland, and in the heart
of a large iron ore disiriet. The beds of

of a mile to two miles distant from the
furnace. The lands upon which the ore is

the company, and is contiguous to the

approximately the same throughout the
entire VlUtriot around t furnace, and is

tons, m iking two hundred thousand tons
of frieght for the year. JThe statement

the latter paper was Wot aware of its
destination. 1 his reminds (to? that it is
about time that our citizens should inquire
the whereabouts of the gun donated by
the Secretary of War to Oregon City,
upon the recommendation of President
Lincoln, just previous to the assassination.
iilMi of the pieces taken from the Coiifed

WfcL Ixform::o. Messrs. Kohn & Fished
of the St. Louis clothing store, Portland.
are well m'ormed regarding the secret of
success. They not only realize the bone
Jits of primers" ink, but pay their bills
promptly without grumbling, and in addi
tion reward o pnnterwith some needed
article in their line of trade, besides all of
0vh:ch tney keep their word with their
customers. We are under obligations to

nor, for years past the popular host ofthe
What Cheer at Portland, has determined
ujn leaving the State. We a
pared to lose good men. '
e ill3r pro-

was a favorite expression of our frieaid
Ford, and when a man like MrO'Conuor
put Is up stakes we think of it. We'mder
stand that the What Cheer has been dis
posed of, and in fact all of Mr. O'Connor's
real estate will be sold as soon as possible.
We trust that he may cast his lines iu
pleasant places in future.
Tiie Okkgox Branch Mint. We have it
from perfect!' reliable sources that the
Oregon branch mint, which was located at
tlie Dalles, has been changed to Milwaukee,
in this county. There can be no objection
to this change, for one reason at least :
viz the convenience of public. If a miner
has to go to Portland to deal, and his dust
is sent back to the Dalles for coinage,
what loss of time is there to have the
branch mint at Milwaukie. It is nearer to
Portland, au l there is a good McAdamized
road, two lines of steamers, and a tele
graph.Qonnecting the places.
P::i:soxal. We have had the pleasure
of meeting iu Oregon City Mr. Isaac Bar

imiugnratkm of the paper manufacturing,
and toofc-Cvith him to' Portland the first
products of the mill. He was tlie first tid-
v'ertr-er in the h.Ti:nri:'si;. and bemjr o&l
the most enierpriaing turn himself there
is no wonder thatlie is meeting with de
served success in his business pursuits.
