that Oregon is to furnish the fancy

years to come, at least. The past

to send a bushel of wheat from Port

present seems to rest on little more
than rumor, though there may be, for
ought we know to the contra'ry, says
the Orcoonian, a very large sized cat
under the meal. Tho Herald cf
Wednesday says: We learned yes
terday that it was in contemplation
by Mr. Ilaun, lately of Umatilla,
(and who was in the employ of the
O. S. N. Company for upwards of
two years), and others, to place a line
of steamers on the. Willamette, in
opposition to the P. T. Company.
We made inquiry and learned that
arrangements were act:vely being
perfected tc carry out the undertak
ing. The steamer Zewislon, a very
light draft boat, built by Mr. Perrins
and another gentleman to ply be
tween Wailula and Lewiston had
been purchased and would be brought
down the Columbia and placed on the
line between Portland and Oregon
City. The engine and machinery of
the Fannie Troup, (the eider,) which
has been laid up at Vancouver for
sometime, has also been purchased,
and will be overhauled, repaired and
put into a new boat to be built above
the Falls at Oregon City. Mr. II.
has just returned from Oak Point
where he has been to secure the
"knees" and other necessary timbers.
A contract has partially been entered
into with the Willamette Iron Works
for the manufacture of a boiler for Uie
new boat. We also learned that ar
rangements were making for the
transportation of freight around the
falls at Oregon City, ai d that 75
cents was the contract price. A trip
and a half a day will be made, leav
ing Portland in the morning, arriving
at Oregon City early in the day, and
departing for Portland, and then re
turning to Oregon City, where it will
remain over night thus laying over
at each place alternate nights. It is
in contemplation to purchase another
boat to ply between here and Oregon
City. We merely state the foregoing,
without remarks, and will Jet the
reader judge for himself what the re
sult will be. We can assure the
public that such a man as Mr. Ilaun
exists, that he is an enterprising man,
but what amount of capital he pos
sesses we know not, nor do we know
whether there is a power behind the
throne. A boiler is certainly being
made by the W iliamette Iron Works
for a boat which it is alleged is to be
built above the falls at Oregon Citv.

VTOTHING THAT IS NOT MIIOLE
jJS some, genial, and restorative in its na
ture, enters into the composition of HOS
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTEKS. This
popular preparation contains no mineral of
any kind ; no deadly botanical clement ; no
fiery excitant ; but is a combination of the
extracts of rare balsamic herbs and plants,
with the purest and mildest of ail diffusive
The week stomach is rapidly invigorated,
and the appetite restored by this tonic, aud
hence it works wonders in cases of Dyspepsia,
and in less confirmed forms of Indigestion.
Acting a3 a gentle and painless e.prient, as
well as upon the liver, it also invariably re
lieves the Constipation superinduced by ir
regular action cf the digestive and Secretive
Persons of feeble habit, liable to Nervous
Attacks, l.owness of Spirits, and Fits of
Languor, find prompt and permament relief
from the Bitters. The testimony on this
point is conclusive, and from both" sexes.
As a Genuine Tonic, HOSTETTER'S BIT
TERS produce effects which must be experi
enced or witnessed before they can be fully
appreciated. In cases of Constitutional
"e:lkriess. lVf-mnrnrp nn.l llrl!1.t-r
and Decrepitude arising from old age, it ex
ercises tfie electric influence. In the conva
lescent stages of all diseases it operates as a
delightful invigorant. When the lowers of
nature are relaxed, it operates to re-enforcc
and re-establish them. .
Last, but not least, it is the only safe stim
ulant, being manufactured from" Sound nnd
inocuous materials, and entirely free from
the acrid elements present more" or less in
all thc ordinarv tonics and stomachics of thc
