E ditor T idings :—Our road question

fall and so fur during the winter,
owing to a lack of developments in
that direction, but it seems to me as
though we at least should organize,

Our Crescent City frieDds have taken
the lead by exploring a new route
from that place to .Waldo, which they
say will be ouly about 45 miles iu
length, with a grade of not more than
one foot to the rod in any part, which
will allow a four-horse team to haul
from 50 to 60 hundred at a load with
We of thia vicinity have also exam
ined a pass over the mouutaiu between
here and flicker creek, w hich would
shorten the distance between Jackson
ville and Waldo about 15 miles, aud be
at least as good as the prt-beut route,
via Siate creek. There is already a I
good road the whole way, with the ex
ception of about 8 miles of mountain
which is uot bud to build a road over.
There is another pass over the same
mouutaiu which is lower but farthtr
around, which we have not jet ex
plored thoroughly, but expect to do so
soon, as the extra distance way be
more than compensated by easier
«lades and cheaper cost of construc
tion. The building of this road iu
counectiou with a new one to Crcsceut
City, will make the distance from
Jacksonville to navigable water about
90 miles, where we may Lave an even
show with the rest of the world. 1 would
suggest that a meeting be had of those
friendly to the scheme, and a corres
pondence opened with our CretceLt
City friends ou the subject.
I see that our friend “Mack” calls us
*‘inaniaca" ou the road question. Well,
he is a bachelor, and the road doesn’t
run past his house.
OREGON SI MMER.
OREGON AS SEEN BV A CALIFORNIAN
When one returns from a trip to Or
egon and remarks that he has just vis
ited the finest country on the faoe of
the globe, people open their eyes with
astonishment and ask you where in
California you have spent your years.
Then you hear such a tirade about “web
feet” and “moss backs” that yon are
willing to give up the argument with
out being half convinced, rather than
hear the pouty words and bear the un
satisfied looks of your dear neighbors.
Now, Oregon has just what California
lacks, a plenty of rain. Rain, Olbeau
tiful rain, give us bountiful showers
of rain here and we can command the
wealth of the world. Leaving California
with about an inch ot dust on my back,
I airived in Portland and Salem fiud-
ing mud nearly ankle deep. The flocks
aud herds were luxuriating on pastures
of red clover and timothv, and the
green fields looked very cheerful as
compared to our dry, dust-covered
hills and valleys at this season. The
farmers ure busy threehiug their stack
ed w heat, also plowing and sowing,and
those who are farther advanced with
their full work have the pleasure of
seeing their wheat out of the ground,
growing finely. Oregon is u timbered
country, jet there are large prairies of
rich-, loamy, beautiful soil.
prairies skirted with oak, fir, ash aud
maple timber, together with orchards
loaded with ripe fruit, give the coun
try a beauty iu autumn which would
be haul to rival. About half way be
tween Portland auu Salem,in the beau
tiful Willamette vallev, is Barlow’s
prairie. Here are the homes of real
luxury, where Nat are’s best gifts are
dispensed aud appreciated, aud where
the least effort of the husbandman is
richly repaid iu the bouuties of the
golden harvest.— It., in Rural Press.
FRUITS OF OREGON.
Westtrn Oregon excels as a fruit
country. No finer fruit, of the kinds
raised there, is produced in any quar
ter of the globe. Fruit-trees will grow
from six to eight feet the first year,
bear fruit-the second, third and fourth
years according to variety. They thrive
in the valleys, as well as on the foot
hills, and up to a considerable height
in the mountains, but especially iD
sheltered, dry soil. At one of the last
State lairs, yeaning prune, peach, and
plum trees, eight feet four inches high,
and yearling cherry-trees seven feet
high, were exhibited.
Apples, pears, plums, and cherries
grow iu such abundance that trees
have to be invariably propped up to pre
vent them from breaking under the
weight ot fruit. The crops have never
failed iu the Willamette valley, though
Datura ly the quantity raised varies iu
different years. The apple-worm and
the curculio are uuknowu, and so is tht
pear blight. The fruits named all at
tain an unusual size, aud fiue color and
fiavor. Finer plums and cherries uDd
prunes are not grown in France. Of
apples, the leading varieties are ytllow
Newton Pippins, bright red l^ppins,
Russetts, Spitzbergen, Wiuesap, Bald
win, white Paruiain, blue Parmain,
Virginia Greening, and Northern Spy.

• A correspondent gravely asks ns what
Stanley has discovered “in equatorial
Africa.” It is possible that there may
be others in the 3tme rttte of deplora
ble ignorance, and wo will therefore
briefly set forth the results of Mr. Stan
ley’s three years of exploration—for we
do not suppose that even our inquiring
friend forgets that before that the
young man had found Dr. Livingstone
in that region. When Stanley started
he described the work before him as
that of finishing the labors of others,
for mauy travelers bad preceded him
into that country of danger and fascin
ation, and seen parts of lakes and riv
ers, without settling anything about
their relations with each other or their
importance to the world. Tiiesources of
the Nile, the problem of ages, were yet
unfound. No one knew anything about
the Congo twenty live miles from the
Atlantic coast. Nowbtanley has left very
little undone of what be undertook to
do. He discovered, in the first pl ¡ice,
the farthest southern waters that con-
tr.bute to the Nile; theShimeeyu river,
pouring luto the Victoria Niyanz*from
the south east. He for the first time
circumnavigated the great Victoria
lake, and followed up its great tribu
tarv, the Kagera, on tile south-west,
through its scores of Jakes. He has
settled the puzzle of the Tanganyika,
which Lad been considered by Living
stone a reservoir of the Nile, and to
which Lieut. Cameron had given an
outlet through the Lukuga into the
Lualaba; both these notions he proved
wrong, and made it certain that the
lake has no outlet, but is au inland lake
of comparatively recent formation,
which is risiug steadily and will one
day make Qarneron’s belief true. And
finally he has proved the Lualaba,
which Livingstone felt sure was the
Nile, to be instead the Congo, by fol
lowing it from the center of the conti
nent to the Atlantic—a wonderful voy
age of over 2,000 miles aud through
seven or eight degrees of latitude,
crossing and recro3sing the equator, in
deadly perils of disease, privation,
trackless forests, unknown waters and
fierce savages, which no other explorer
had ventured to face, and which Came
ron had shortly before turned away
from. These are the principal geo
graphical discoveries of Stanley, but to
make a complete list of them would
take too much time and space. Pres
ently Mr. Stanley will come home and
publish a book, and then our friend
can get the information in detail, with
map.i, besides learning more about the
various millions of Africans and the
valuable products of the immense re
gion he has given knowledge of to the
world of commerce. Springfnbl RepuL-
