Tlie True Source of VaHIi.
13 at a few years ago, since the dis
covery of Boise, we recollect having
been terribly " riled" because of a
statement in the Scientific American
that gold mining, provided tho metal
is used fur coin, adds nothing to the
wealth of mankind. "We could not
sec 5t in that light, perhaps, because
' 1 '
Oregon had very little else than gold
dust to ship. We cotdd not bear the
. , . . A .
idea, of sei-ino-. nnniw. hv. rpnorts or
idea of seeing, annually, reports of
our expoits in small figures; believed
that the more such wealth we sent
away the greater were our riches;
what folly. But all at once it came
to us in the light set forth by the
Scientific American, and wc were
really obliged to admit that our gold
shipments were actual evidences of
the poverty of the country. The
State, at that time manufactured
nothing, so to speak. Our clothing,
in fact the brooms we swept our
floors with, were imported, and the
people in common " lived from hand
We hare always had a great de
sire to assist in building up the State,
wished to make it permanently pros
perous, and this desire lias oftentimes
been taken advantage of by specula
tors, whose plans we have puffed
without stint, utterly regardless of
tho hereafter, thinking wc were doing
tha public a service. It is perhaps
just as well for the State that the
hundreds of schemes for developing
quartz ledges in the country were
tried and tried effectually if they
have most signally failed, generally,
people can now abandon them, and
turn their attention to something
About the time the Oregon City
Woolen Milling Company was in--corporated
a new era began to d uvn
upon Oregon. The manufacturing
interests then commenced to develop
themselves, and steadily they have
been gaining ground ever sin?e, until
now we not only have woolen goods
to ship, but very many other articles.
Oregon is no longer dependent upon
importations for machinery; iron;
salt; brooms; leather; sash, blinds
and door?; cement; paper; soap; a
variety ct agricultural implements,
etc., etc., and yet there is much that
is now largely imported that should
be manufactured at home, as we have
here tho foundation, materials, and
ample water power, together with
mechanics and artisans en:ial to any
the world can produce. There is
probably no State in the Union that
can compare with Oregon on the
score of natural advantages, and
hope to see them developed in
tar, in a ratio corresponding
the past iV.v years.
We fully agree with the Scientific
American now in fact havo fur
some time that if a man owns a
steam engine worth 810,000, the en
gine forms this portion cf the wealth
of the world. And if the man de
votes his surplus labor, besides that
which is necessary to procure a liv
ing, or expend 3 his surplus profits in
constructing a second engine of equal
efficiency and value, he adds another
$10,000 to the wealth uf the world.
But if he expends the same amount
of surplus labor or promts in simply
adding to the weight of his engine,
without increasing its efficiency or
usefulness in any respect, hedoesnot
by the operation augment the wealth
of himself, of the community or of
mankind. Believe that a man who
becomes rich by manufacturing or
trading, generally increases the
wealth of the country and of the
world, to an extent at least equal to
his own accumulations, but the la
bors cf the gold-digger add nothing
to the wealth cf mankind, inasmuch
as thev increase the wci-rht of the
currency without increasing its value.
Wholesale Slander. The editor
of the Marin, Cah, Journal, comment
ing on the Wine Grower's report
" Perhaps these sr.ge wine grow,
ers think the people don't know
that nearly every proprietor of a
winrproducing vineyard of Napa
and Sonoma is a drunkard , and that
in some instances the wife and chil
dren merit the same unlovely title."'
Now if this Marin county man
will step up to Judge Evey, at
Calistoga. or call upon Frank Kel
logg, at St. Helena, we vetK-.ire to
say they will show him quite to tho
contrary, and prove that he has
been guilty cf wholesale slander.

The FcviUs Mail. The Gazette in
its last issue reads a lecture to the

Not the Man. The Gazette says

Camping at the Fair. A Califor

shanties as will answer ail purposes,
and there need be no loss: or waste of
lumber, which will be just as good as
new for farm purposes after the fair.

Immigrants. Several teams, with
families direct from the Mississippi
Valley, have entered this part of
Oregon within a few days past.
There is no part of the whole Pa

as this Valley, and the Counties

immigrant generally finds out, but
not in all cases, until they have

Dr.. IIos'i f. iter's Stomach Pit
tehs. The operation of this palatable rem
edy upon the stomach, liver and excretory
organa is singularly soothing and conserva
tive. It regulates, recruit and purities
them. Dyspepsia in all its forms yields to
its control and invigorating properties, and
it is recommended to mothers, enfeebled bv
the cares and duties of maternity, as the
safest and best remedy they can "probably
use. In all the crisis of female bfe it will be
found eminently useful, r.nd elderly persons
will derive much more beneiit from it than
from ordinary stimulants. Sold bv the drug
gists and dealers evervwhere.
