We submit the following answers, as to
Clackamas county
It we are in error we invite older citi
zens to correct, and assist us :
-0. 1 There are no public buildings in
Oaekam is co;ir;y, if we except the Semi
nary at Oregon City, worthy of note ; The
count v ).iil is a miserable structure, but we
have ve'iy Utile use for a jail in this region.
No. 2-- The. average price of fanning
.lauds, improved and unimproved, in this
county, is from to ." per acre. Wild
O land is abundant at front 1 25 to $2 per
ucre.
No. " The assessed value of properly

is as follows, for five years past :

ment ol" the resources of the county, after
the damages by floods of the Wiut'.'r of
lMil-o2.
No. t The general nature of the !?oil in
(thji county, and its adaptation to farming
purposes is good, ("rain, vegetables, and
tbe variou kinds of fruit, grow abundant
ly here, even on our poorest lands. Stock
raising and dairying eoiii. be profitably
engaged in at a small expense. There is
no better country for timothy grass than
this ; its growth on our highest hills is lux
uriant, and it serves to kill out fern.
No. ." We have all the varieties of fun
her common to Oregon in Clackamas coun
ty. Oak and ash. suitable for wagon tim
ber and the " wood work"' of agricultural I
implements, is said to be more abundant
vf) better quality in this, than other
counties, and has been worked out by par
ties in years past, with profit to tliemsel es
and the opportunity still remains. The
amount of materials in the county for
building, fencing, etc-., is inexhaustible,
and a general lumbering business is now'
being carried on by ten or a dozen com
panies, with available space for a hundred
move.
0 N 0 The quality of water for family"
0 uses in Clackamas county, cannot 1.e ex
celled. Pure, living springs and mountain
streams, course through every section.
The amount of water available for power,
is f.ir in excels of any oilier single county
in the world, perhaps. The falls of the
Willamette, at this city, provide man with
more than one million horse-power. The
fauries of Lowell and Lawrence, were
they here, would consume but a portion j
of the0vater adapted by nature for mill- j
ing and mechanical purposes in this town, j
Oswego can be made to furnish nearly one !
quarter of that amount, while Milwaukie
has significant value in this respect, and
the Clackamas. Molalla, Uutte Creek. Milk
Creek, Tualatin, and many other streams
?nch we might name, furnish valuable I
localities for mechanical purposes. The
riks arising from overflows are le?s than
ordinary in this county. Put a small pro
I'ortiori of lands in this county are subject
to damage by freshets. In this city, in
the winter cf ls'iil-Y.2 much property was
lost by li,,0ds : but that was a memor
nble erent, the like of which t!ad never
been witnessed upon the coast by white
in in, and it may never occur again.
No. 7 The temperature of this locality
is even. Excessive heat and excessive
eel J is vcrv rare. The general health of
the comity is good ; billions affections are
hut little known among our people.
No. 8 We can offer better inducements
to mechanics and tradesmen who can bring
capital with them, than other counties of
the State generally. "We could do better
hy them, had our citizens the capital them
selves, to develop our resources. Profes
sional men and teaeherswe have but Hitle
use for at present. Such places are now
ably filled. We want blood and muscle,
and money.
o. 9 Immigrants can obtain anything
thev desire, at. reasonable cost in this
county.

meetings for religious worship are good in
Clackamas couity. Ia this city alone there
are five churches : Methodist, Episcopalian,
Catholic. Cougregationalist and Baptist.
We have also, in thw city, three private se
lect schools, and one excellent public
school, or seminary as it is termed, capable
of instructing in the higher branches. .
No. 14 The facilities for marketing, and
means of transportation, in this comity are
equal to any on the Pacific coast This is
1 community of consumers chiefly oper
1 fives and laborers. The same may be
?aid with reference to Oswego, where
miners, choppers, teamsters, coal-burners,
fnrnace-taen, etc., form the bulk of popu
lation. We have at present three steamers
running daily (except Sunday), between
Oregon city and Portland, to which will
be added, by September next (18CS), rail
road communication, connecting us with
the present sea port vf Oregon but ten
miles distant.
No. 12 "We have two Woolen Facto
ries in Clackamas county. The leading
one, located at Oregon City, is about 190
by (iO feet, four stories, built of stone and
brick, and contain twelve sets cf the la
test improved machinery. The Oswego
Iron Smelting works were erected a. i. 1SC7
at a cost of about S 100.000. There are
several lumbering mills in the county. The
celebrated Imperial Flouring Mills are
located at Oregon Cityand the famous
Standard flotir is made at Milwaukie. The
only iron made on the coast at this time
is made at Oswego It is equal to the best
Scotch pig and is sought for by Califor
nia foundryinen. We have a large tan
nery at Milwaukie, which turns out leath
er that sells in San Francisco alongside of
the best Santa Cruz. We have paper
mills nearly ready to run. We have gold
and silver quart, mines in this county, of
value. We have coal, lime, -and copper
has recently been discovered in consider
able quantities. The Oswego Milling
company export lumber, we believe. All
other mills manufacture for domestic uses.
There are places in this county where the
existence of salt springs is indicated, also
coal oil is known to exist in the soil of
this county, but none of these are devel
oped. At this city Salmon fishing is car
ried on to considerable extent. Seven
nets have been run this season.
No. 13. There is government lf.nd in
this county, available for settlement, and
we are told that much of it would be of
value for agricultural purposes. Mechan
ical or lumbering pursuits cannot be gone
amiss of. The government land office for
this district is located at Oregon City,
at which Mr. Owen Wade officiates as Reg
ister, and Mr. Henry Wurren Receiver.
The editor of the Kxtkummsk will treat
all inquiries for information regarding the
resources of the Slate, or any part of it,
with respectful consideration. And if we
are unable to answer questions intelligent
ly, will endeavor to obtain the necessary
information IrDtn others. This we believe
to be the duty of all Vrftjomaixs. We are
fully impressed with respect to the import
ance of inviting population to Oregon
and we feel a sense of shame for the com
monwealtli, when our attention in turned
to the gross neglect and indifference to
these matters, on the part 0! those chiefly
interested, in a pecuniary poiftt of vfcw:
Pa.sk Baix. A match game of Base ball
was played in this city on Saturday last)
between the Athletics of Portland, and the
Ttunwaters. We regret that the latter
were compelled to yield the palm of victo
ry by 39. The Jferahl says : " When the
result was announced, the contestants with
their friends adjourned to partake of a
splendid collation that had been served
for them. Having done full justice
to it, they finished off the day by giving
three times three for the ladies who su
pervised the feast. At 2i o'clock the
Portland boys took boat and returned
home, highly pleased with their excur
sion. Mr. (i. A. Morton, of the Spartan
Club, was Umpire, Mr. O. Ainsworth was
Scorer for the Athletics ; Mr. N. S. John
sou Was Scorer for the Tumvators.:'
The Sabbath School scholars of the
M. E. Church gave a varied programme to
the patrons of their exhibition on Thusday
and Friday evctntigs. The tableaux,
songs, declamations, etc., were very excel
lent, and the school deseives much credit
for their efforts. These exhibitions are
both moral and entertaining, and besides
teaching the scholars ne.V lessons of use
fulness, are a benefit to the church. We
hope to witness several such exhibitions
in our city this year. We will not attempt
to speak of the d liferent parts performed,
as that would take up more space than we
have to spare at present. We only speak
the sentiments of the community in appro
val. -The Sabbath School Scholars of. the
Episcopal Church in this city gave an en
tertainment at the Court House on the
evening of tiie 5th for the benefit of the
church, which netted S81 2.3. It was a
success in every particular. There were
many articles of worth, wrought by (he
busy little hands, put up and sold. Which
enabled the committee to return such a
handsome balance to the funds of the
church.
Hkkps ok Cattlk. Th beards of cattle
passing east of the mountains tluls spring
are astonishingly large and numerous. We
learn from Mr. Henry Nevins, of Fort
Okanogan, that these cattle are driven to
Yakima Valley one year, and thence to
British Columbia, Montana, etc., the suc
ceeding season. Probably not less than
.". );)!) head has passed through Oregon
City this season so far. If other routes
are traveled in the same proportion what
a swarm they must present.
Our readers will be pleased to learn
that a practical culturist is about to plant
and cultivate the craubury in this county.
His plants will be imported from tbe best
stock in the Eastern States, and from the
lay of" the land iu which he proposes to
put them, we bare no doubt about the
success of the venture.
A special meeting of the Common
Council was held on Saturday evening
last. The liberal action of the board -toward
the company, at that meeting, lins
secured the road to Oregon City, beyond
a doubt.

The Grand I-Kidge of the Independent
order of Odd Fellows, at their session
lately held in this city, passed resolutions
of thanks to the Daughters of Rebecca for
their kind hospitalities on that occasion.

It is astonisTiing' wha't sonfe people
seem to require of the journalist. He must
know everything by intuition, never make
mistakes, denounce and support , every
thing in turn, be always in the way and
always out of the way, keep clear of cer
tain people's corns, and stand on those of
others: He must be omnipotent, infallible,
ubiquitous, gifted with a rfuperhurrfan
power of discove'rirtg discerning trtitli,
possessed of the courage- and firmhessl of
the martyrs, ever a sacrifice for the ben
efit of others. He must have more hands
than Briareus, more eyes than Argus, more
Webster, more philosophy than Bacon.
He must be learned and common, rough
and finished, deep and shallow, versatile
and intense, dignified and witty, proud
and humble, and every thing else that
anybody ever thought, kuew, or dreamed
of and all to be called and held to be in
the common parlance of the public who
torture him, idiot, liar, pup, Ac, ad infini
turn. It is ft UtUt the nicest position that
modern society oners.
At a meeting held on Saturday even
ing last, the Common Council of this city
consented to grant the right of way
through Main street, to the Oregon Central
Railroad Company, for two years. If we
are not able, as an incorporation to aid
the company in funds, it is at least our
duty to do so in good wishes, and by
friendly legislation. We are sorry to say
that there is opposition to the road in Ore
gon City, but we are confident that the
good judgment of our citizens will pre
vent a sacrifice of all we possess here, for
any obstacles that may be thrown in the
way of the successful operation of the line.
Should we, by hook or crook, be deprived
of this railroad compel the company to
go to the east of us a few niles Good

would be solicited within a year or two.
to raise a subsidy for a little steamboat to
carry us to Milwaukie when we wanted to
transact any business. No sane man can
deny that proposition.

The steamer Xvvada, of the North
American S. S. Company, leaving San
Francisco on the 20lh will be in command
of Capt. Kelley, late of the Montana iu the
" Anchor Line." All Oregonians recog

cided gentleman. We regret exceedingly
that he ever left these waters, and need
only to mention that he will be found on
board the Xevadu to turn the attention of
Oregonians, or friends going east, U his
ship.
