'"-litis not generally known that we of
Oregon City hare any sort of roads upon
which to take a drive in the afternoon, be
fore breakfast, or at dusk, but having twice
accepted of invitations from friends within
the past len da"s to ride over the hills
ta.nt of the city, we learn that in point of
flct our county can boa3t of its drives.
The first ride wa3 with Mr. W. B. Partlow.

ought to do, if he wants to be independent
O and live to a good old age. We rolled
, o'at through a shady grove an tne way ior
a few miles south easterly, saw several
handsome farms, with neat tasty residences,
barns amP other buildings, reminding us
of homes in the land beyond the Missis
sippi. There ws real pleasure in the trip.
Again, we went northerly ; and ve shall

ford it. . T .
There are hundreds of people living
in Portland who never visited this city
they never get beyond the sound of drays
and hacks, milk carts, and bakers wagons.
Let them come up here and treat their
ears to the sound of our rushing waters,
tfce spindles and looms in our manufac
tories, the music of our forest birds, and
breathe the breath of fresh air. It will do
them good. Passage is cheap, and trans
portation often. Fare 23 cents, 50 cents,

0 two samples of grain from adjoining fields,
on the farm oT Mr. E, W. SwafTord, one of
oats and one of wheat. The oats straw
measures five fret four inches to the grain,
the head being seven inches more, filled
heavily. The wheat stands eighteen steins
fro iff one tuft, and averages three feet
tlree inches, with fyiir inches and a feJtlf of
head, containing about the finest grain the
vorld ever saw. These are only average
specimens of the grain of this county. The

supplied by the stream on the bluff, it is

not a building within range of The hy

xw Cabinet Ed it ions of tlie AVorkrn of
"Washington Irving. "
In announcing several new editions, in
a style of improved elegance, and conve
nience, of the Works of Washington Irving,
the publishers would take the opportunity
of acknowledging ' the go5d reception
which his efforts in the presentation of
these favorite Writings bate heretofore re
ceived. In the several forms in which the
various productions of the author of the
Sketch-Book' have been given .to the
public,- it' is estimated thatthe sale has
reached no less than fifty thousand of the
series, or more than a million volumes.
Nor is the demand yet abated. On the
contrary, new exertions of enterprise are
required to meet the desires of a new gen
eration of readers, and keep pace with the
progress of taste arid refinement in tb
typographic and other mechanic arts of
the publisher's calling.
The motive of this perennial popularity
is not ' far to seek. . It is to be read on
every page of the delightful volumes in
which "Geoffrey Crayon'' infused the
uappy inspiration oi nis genius in ins ae
votion to, themes which will always be. re
garded by successive generations of, rea
ders with no ordinary emotions of interest.
The charm of the felicitous style of Wash
ington Irving, the reflection of the amiable
poetic spirit of the . truly refined gentle
man, would be felt on any topic on which
the author had been pleased to bestow it
But it is for the ever-enduring' fame of
Irving that he close for the exercise of his
pen, topics of undying value and import
ance. In his inviting Essays on human
life and character in portraying manners,
as in the "Sketch-Book," "Braccbridge
Hall," and other volumes, he has touched,
with mingled sentiment and humor, those
emotions which are implanted in the hearts
of all; while his topics of biography, of
history and romance, are of such world
wide celebrity and passionate interest as
the story of Columbus and his followers,
with their discoveries of the New World ;
the life of the founder of the nation.
Gkop.ce Washington, drawing with it the
narrative of the Civil and Military events
of America during his remarkable career ;
the marvelous record of Mahomet, with the
illustrations of the genius of h:s race in
the romantic fact and legend of " The
Tales of the Alhambra" and the - Con
quest of Granada the felicity with which
the author has linked his name wilh the
birthplace of Shakespeare, the genius 'of
Oliver Goldsmith, the fame of Scott and
Byron, and. not least, the humorous in
vention which, in"; Knickerbocker's irre
sistible Chronicle of New York, has im
puted a mythic interest to the bare early
annals of his native city. It is that the
writings of Washington Irving ir.ay be
claimed to be imperishable, till, what is
not likely soon to happen, the. same ever
welcome themes are treated in some hap
pier manner. The charm of Irving is hi3
acceptability to all. a grace and refine
ment to please the most fastidious ; and
bis peculiar merit is readily appreciated
by every reader: his good sense and hu
mor, the air of enjoyment pervading his
pages, has secured his works a home in
both hemispheres, wherever the English
language is understood. Of the few in
dispensable authors in every American
library. Washington Irving is certainly
among the foremo3t. The delight of child
hood, tlie chivalric companion of refined
womanhood, the solace of life at every
period, his writings are an imperishable
legacy of grace and bea'nty to his coun
trymen. The new publications of these works
will be in several forms of unusual ele
gance, and all, in proportion to a moderate
price for each, combining good taste with
economy. The series will be issued in the
following order punctually on the first day
of each month until completed, beginning
last October : Bracebridge Hall; Astoria;
Wolfert's Roost; Bonneville; Sketch-Book:

The week stomach is rapidly invigorated,
