fays : The plow was set 6 inches deep
arid drawn by two light horses, and
worked easy and regularly. AH who
witnessed the trial were greatly
pleased with the result. It was pro
ven that one man and two horses
with a Pfeil plow, could break more
ground in a day, than two men and
four horses, with common plows.
As mnny as 25 plows have been sold
in Jackson county and other orders

this is the greatest improFement in

most incalculable ; saving an immense

The First American Newspaper Print
el on the Pacific Coast.
A correspondent of the San
Francisco JUfxaminer, states the fol
" Whatever others may say to the
contrary, we assert that the honor of
publishing the first newspaper in the
English language on the Pacific
Coast belongs to llobert Semple.
The first issue was printed on the
"Rarnage Press," so called, and
which had been previously used for
the publication of official documents
when this country was under Mexican
rule. It has only beeu a week or
two since we had in our hands a
printed copy of the first number
issned by Doctor Semple, and we
looked on it as a great curiosity. It
bore the date of some day in July,
1846, and its dimensions were pre
cisely those of a half sheet of ordina
ry letter paper, and printed only on
one side at that. I t simply contained
a proclamation of James K. Polk,
then President of the United States,
Semple's prospectus, and a brief par
agraph stating, though the paper was
small that it would be enlarged when
new materials could be obtained.
It was published at Monterey. At
a subsequent period Semple moved
his publication office to Sin Francisco;
but we shall speak of the Press at an
early day in the now great commer
cial Metropolis of California, at some
We dislike to have onr statements
disputed, bat when we make an er
ror we take great pleasure in correct
ing it, when shown to us. We have
often asserted that " the honor of
publishing the first newspaper in the
English language on the Pacific
Coast," be'ongs to Mr. John Flem
ing, of this city, "Whatever others
may say to the contrary, it is never
theless a fact, that the publication of
the Oregon Spectator, was commenc
ed in this city in February 1846,
some five months at least, before the
issue of Dr. Sempies' paper at Mot-
terey. The Spectator was printed
upon one of Hoe's Washington
Presses, aud its size was nearly half
that of the Enterprise. The press,
type, ink, paper, etc., was brought
out from New York upon the order
of George Abnernethy Eq., the first
American Governor on this coast,
than Governor of Oregon. The
same vessel brought the news that
General Jackson was dead, and that
the " 54 40' or fight" boundary
question between the American and
English governments bad been set
tled. We thus contest the claim
set up by the Examiner, and demand
that the Pioneer Society make the
proper record of the fact.
Tub WeatiIer. Those who have
beeu yearning for rain were fully sat
isfied, no doubt, with the showers
which deluged " all creation" last
Wednesday evening. After pouring
down heavily for several hours, the
next day the skies cleared aud Luna
again "reigned supreme." Saturday
last was a fair day. A portion of
both Sunday and Monday it rained
Tuesday was a regular Web-Foot
Winter day. Wednesday fair with
heavy rain in the night time. Thurs
day delightful bright sunshine most
of the day. Friday, decidedly "mist."

the coast. These gentlemen are away ahead
of all other establishments of the kind'in Ore
yon and California. Their names are known
all over the coast and at the East, and their
manufacture everywhere commands the best
trade. The new establishment here is an or
nament to the city, aud of great credit to
their enterprise. They are in constant re

all the iatet and most fashionable styles, and
their prices are always moderate and satis

and more than that number of Saddles. He
is bou.id 4o mr.ke a trade with any man who
Wishes o buy of him. He uses both Oregon
and California leather in his establishment,
and his work tears a most excellent reputation
abroad. We hope that citizens of our own

articles in his tine.

Gentlemen : The watches manufactured by
you have been in 'use on this Railroad for
several years by our enginemen, to whom
we furnish watches as part of our equip
ment. There are now some three hundred
of them carried on our line, and we consider
them eood and reliable time keepers. Ia
deed, I have great satisfaction in saving
your watches give us less trouble, and have
worn and do wear much longer without re
pairs than any watches we have ever bad in
use on this road. As you are aware w-e for
merly trusted to those of English manufac
ture, of acknowledged good reputation, but
as a class they never kept time as correctly,
nor have they done as good service as yours.
In these statements f am sustained by my
predecessor, Mr. Lewis, whose experience
extended over a series of years.

Gentlemen: I have po hesitation in saying
that I believe the great majority of locomo
tive engineers have found by experience that
Waltham Watches are the most satisfactory
of any for their uses. Tbev run with tbe
greatest accuracy and steadiness, notwith
standing the rough riding of an engine, and,
as I have never known one to wear out, they
must be durable. I hope to see the time
when railway companies will generally
adopt your watches, and furnish them to all
engineers and conductors. In my opinion
it would greatly tund to promote regularity
