beautiful prairies of unsurpassed
fertility, timber and wood land
sufficient to more than supply the
homo demand, and within an "easy
day's drive of navigable water,

Iii answers to inquiries made by
the Committee, risking information
relative to the resources of Oregon,
the following communication has
been received from John T. Scott,
Esq., which, for its clear and com
prehensive statement of facts, the
Committee lias thought best to in

September 2."lh, l.S'iS.
Hon. A. J. Diifur. Chairman of the Oregon
. fri 'cultural Society :
Dear Sin In compliance with
the foregoing circular, I will brief
ly answer The several inquiries in
First The character, of public
buildings: We have located in our
county the Pacific University: The
buildings consist of three large and
commodious framed structures,
suilicient to accommodate the pres
ent wants of the community. And
I may here remark, that this In
stitute is well patronized, and the
corjhs of teachers is not excelled in
Second TJic average price of
farming land, improved and unim
proved : Improved farms can be
obtained lor irom ten to twenty
dollars per acre, according to the
amount of improvements ; unim
proved, at from three to four dol
lars. Third The amount of tax on
the dollar in this county is four
Fourth The general nature of
the soil, etc: Our country con
tains some of the best farm
ing laifls in the State. The Tuala
tin Plains are well adapted to veg
etables, and fruit of all kinds.
Fifth The different kinds of
timber and adaptation to building,
lumber, fence, etc.: We have all
the different varieties that are to
be found throughout our State,
conveniently located for farming
and lumbering purposes. Our
water-power is abundant and am
, Sixth Quality and convenience
of water for stock and domestic
purposes: Wells nvq, mostly used
for families ; water soft and pure,
and easily obtained; numerous
ctceks and springs abound.
Seventh Climate, health, etc.;
We are situated in the northwest
corner of the Willamette valley;
our climate is mild and of an even
temperature ; the general health of
the country is good.
Eighth Inducements held out
to mechanic?, professional men and
tPadesine: The various mechani
cal professions thrive well here, al
though there is not a sufficient
supply for the demand ; in fact, we
want more population to develop,
our vast resources. Wc could
welcome ten thousand settlers to
our county, and yet there would
be room for more.
Ninth The facilities, for immi-
ixrants to obtain supplies of all
kinds : We have

and easily obtained. Agricultural
and mechanics' tools can be had

as in many of the older States.
Tenth Opportunities for school
ing and meetings of religious wor

ileroism of a. Girl only Eleven years
On Friday of last wcek,c a fami
ly named Crowley, living at Pug
wash, N. S., were aroused from
sleep, about 11 r. m., b the crack
ing sound of lire. Mr. Crowlev
rushed to the barn, where two of
his sons slept, to arouse them. On
his return he found it impossible to
get up stairs, where five of the
family were sleeping, or to his fa
ther s room, where tnc old man
and a little son were sleeping to
gether. Put at last the cries of
Mrs. Crawley awakened the eldest
daughter, who, on rushing to the
window, was told to throw herself
down. The noble child replied :
"No, my brother and sister must'
be saved." 1 teturning through the
smoke and heat,, she snatched up
her sleeping brother, nine years
old, and carried him to the win
dow, from which he contrived to
get down. Again she returned
the llames having penetrated' the
room this lime and taking up her
sister, seven years old, she carried
her also to the window ; and here,
says the Kev. Edwin Clay, M. I).,
" the dear girl had more than she
could do, for her sister in her
flight refused to be thrown out,
and with the flames coming up
around her, she struggled with her
until she put her out of the win
dow, and the child dropped help
lessly to the grdund. After hang
ing a moment or two upon the
window-sill, she dropped down her
self, a distance of nearly sixteen
feet. When she rose from the
ground she said : ' I am done, moth
er; but I have saved my brother
and sister from being burnt up
With much difficulty and personal
risk, Mr. Crowley was all this time
endeavoring to save his aged fath
er ami little son. The night was
extremely cold, and none of them
had saved a particle of clothing.
The mother, with her burnt chil
dren, then walked a distance of
nearly half a mile, and I was soon
sent for. In about three hours af
ter the fire, I was attending to the
wants of the suffering children. I
saw there was no hope of saving
the. dear girl, for, from her fore
head to the bottom of her feet, she
was one mass of burnt flesh. This,
with the fearful shock of jumping
so far, and walking such a distance
in the cold, caused her to sink rap
idly, and at six m the morning she
died, aged eleven years and eight
months c.a martyr to the love of
her brother and sister. I never be
fore saw such courage and firmness
in one so young, and while dress
inr- lier bruised and burnt limbs,
she uttered no complaint. I Icr sis
ter died in the evening, and the
grandfather suffered fearfully from
the effects, of his jumping out of
the window. Tile rest, I "hope,
will all recover. It was a sad sight
to see the parents, broken-hearted,
weeping over their suffering loved
ones.' ' Montreal T I lit i ess.

UP IN A BALLOON.
Frightful xperiicc f Profc sor
Mountain in the Saginaw VavIIey.
From the Saginaw, Michigan, Enterp'se.
The late balloon ascension from
Bay City, on Tuesday afternoon,
is perhaps one of the most danger
ous exploits ever accomplished by
an aeronaut. The balloon was fill
ed before starting to its utmost
tension, but owing to recent re
pairs leaked badly, so that after
one or two unsuccessful attempts,
Mr. Ileadly who was to have ac
companied Professor La Mountain,
was obliged to get out of the car
Mr. II. had the eatables, instru
ments of observation and tissue
paper used to ascertain the ascend
ing and descending force of the
balloon, and before he could trans
fer the articles named, those vho
held the car let go, and the balloon
shot up with a rapidity that car
ried it to an altitude of two miles
within a few minutes. A perfect
gale of wind was blowing at the
time, and a moment after rain and
sleet commenced falling. Profes
sor La Mountain says that it
bc-cavne ail at nee intensely cold.
The cloud lie entered was one
swimming mass of snow flakes, in
terspersed with rain, "which formed
a frost work on the car and netting
of the -balloon. The earth was
lost to view. By tearing up his
handkerchief and throwing out
shreds he became conscious that
he was passing upward with won
derful rapidity, and along with the
current of the air eastward toward
the lake, and, without.a pound of
ballast to regulate his descent, he
reached for t lie valve rope, with the
intention of lowering himself grad
ually. T(5 his surprise the valve
would not open. The rain and
sleet accumulating on the top of
the balloon, had frozen the valve
so tight as to resist the pressure
from below. Putting his whole
strength to the task, he gave a
strong pull on the rope, pulling out
the iron staples attaching the rope
to the valve, the rope falling down
into the -car. The balLoon was
mounting up faster than ever. It
had passed the storm cloud, which
was "a mile below, ar.d the heavens
above were as clear, and the sun
shining as brightly as at midday
in June. But the air was very
cold, and La Mountain? was be
numbed with cold, lie had at
tained a height of over three miles.
The balloon could not burst, for
yhen the expansion became too
great the gas could escape from
the flues or valve below, which
was open ; but lie was fearful of
being carried into or over the lake
without having made preparations
for such an event. Mounting the
hoop overhead, he reached for the
knife only to find that he had left
it on the ground. Clinging to the
rope with one hand, he succeeded
with the other and his teeth, after
some exertion, in tearing a rent in
the balloon from the bottom ten
or fifteen feet upwards. Then serv
ing the opposite side the same way,
he descended to the car to watch
the progress. During this opera
tion the ends of the fingers of both
hands became frozen. For a few
minutes the ballooi,kept ascending,
then, as the gas escaped, it reach
ed an equipoise, and a moment
after commenced to gradually de
scend to the earth. Every instant
increased its downward speed. The
Professor says that he heard the
cloth tearing, the rents enlarging,
until, with a crash that sounded
like a death-knell, the cloth gave
way to the pressure, opening a
seam on both sides from the bot
tom to the top. The gas escaped
instantly, leaving not a thousand
cubic feet, while the air rushed in
filling up the vacum,the ballooii act
ing as a parachute. The Professor
gives it as his opinion that at the
height of two miles there Was not
a foot of gas in the balloon. The
cloth, bellying out, formed a strong
resistance to the atmosphere, and
retarded the descent, lie remem
bers distinctly passing through a
cloud, and the sensation on regain
ing sight of the earth. He has an
almost indistinct recollection of
bin"- the earths surface.

Happing of the cloth became loud
er, and a moment alter he became
unconscious. On regaining his
senses he found himself lying in a
woods, aiiiUhis balloon was some
yards distant. Several persons
who had seen the balloon descend
had come to the scene, and were
standing near ; they assisted him.
His arms and legs were badly
bruised, and himself stunned, but
no bones were . broken or internal
injury sustained. The spot where

A Romance in Real Life.
A Paris correspondent says : "A
very extraordinary story was re
cently narrated tome, for the truth
of which lean vouch. An Ameri
can gentleman, a man of middle
age and wealthy, who has ii splen
did suite of apartments in a fashion
able quarter of the town, had a cu
riosity to enquire of his landlady
who -and what were his fellow ten
ants. After she had described the
usual11 families, an troiseme. the
clerks, strangers, etc., the actors,
milliners, and musicians, who in
habited the highest flights, mad
amc recalled a remote garret cor
ner, inhabited by a young lady,
whom she described as afilicted by
a dreadful eruption, which render
ed her hideous, and who was to
the last degree, poor, neglected,
and hopeless. Still, she is a lady
a true lady. Poor soul, she can
not live long in such misery!'
"My friend visited the invalid,
and found her in dreadful circum
stances. He ascertained that she
was evidently a German, tlvough
speaking several languages, like a
native. lie bade the landlady re
move the sufferer to a good room,
provide her with comforts and med
ical attendance, and call ujon him
for weekly allowances for her' sup
port, after which he almost forgot
his charity, or if he did recollect it
it was with a shudder at the
wretchedness he had witnessed.
"One morning the landlady came
and stated that the poor lady had
recovered,- that his allowance had
been so carefully managed that she
was .-.provided with a traveling out
fit, and that before returning to
Germany she wished to return him
" He assented ; and what was Ids
surprise when, instead of the pale,
shrunken, horribly repulsive object
whom he had seen, there entered a
3'oung lady of extraordinary beau
.t, whose every glance and move
ment, despite the plainness of her
dress, indicated style and elegance.
" Her gratitude was unbounded;
she seemed almost to worship the
man who had been so generous.
She did not, however, hesitate to
accept from him a further gift of
money, after which she departed.
" All this took place some time
ago. Last autumn our American
traveled. At every town he found
rooms engaged for him ; distin
guished people called on him ; eve
ry comfort seemed to fall on him as
if by luck. It was to luck he at
tributed it, for though a mysterious
hand was at work, he did not for a
long time suspect it.
" While at Berlin he was, how
ever, amazed at receiving an invi
tation from one of the first of the
Hanovarian nobility to visit him at
his estate. He went there, was
overwhelmed with kindness, and
found in the castle, as only daugh
ter and heiress of his host, the
young lady whom he had relieved.
" The next day she explained the
mystery. I regret that I cannot
now repeat it. It was one of those
long stories of dreadful crime,shale''
and an innocent victim agony
and flight, which hang over most
noble families, and once in every
L generation or so, bear a sufferer to
the abyss. In the last instant of
hope, the American had rescued
such as victim, and circumstances
had enabled her to return to her

Years ago a Pennsylvania farm
er loved and married a charming
young girl that lived near him.
The marriage time passed on, and
soon the farmer contracted a taste
for liquor, -which frequently got
the best of him. His wife re
monstrated with him which on
one occasion ended by the hus
band stab! ing lier with a butcher
knife. He left precipitately, sup
posing he had killed her, hid him
self in the est, where m a lew
years he became a prosperous and
wealthy merchant. -The wife in
the meantime recovered, and after
living alone for five years, married

and she also went to the Vest.
Then the incredible part of the sto

The other day wo ftatv a plow, in
the furrow, its bright steel visible
now and then as the steady-pulling
team drew it around on its great
work. We stood by the roadside,
and thus ran our thoughts. Who
will agree .with them ?
-Now look at that pltfw. In
the hands of that farmer's son,
drawn by .willing cattle, it is doing
a great work. It cost but a fevr
dollars. It is worth untold mil
lions to the nation. It prepares
the ground for the seed which will
bring forth crops for the benefit of
all.- The mold-board, the plow
share, the beam, handles and cross
rungs, all are the work of man, his
work, to benefit still others.
The man who owns this land
pays taxes thereon. The man who
owns the plow, the cattle, pays faxes
on them. He pays taxes on all he
has, on all lie raises, on all he has
invested. And he must do so year
after year. For what ?
We will tell you.
School taxes, that children may
Road taxes, that roads may be
kept in order.
Town taxes, that the taxes of
the district may b'j collected and
County taxes, that the courts,
sheriffs, jurors, and county officers
may be supported.
State taxes, for like reasons.
The man the cattle, the plow
paj's these taxes. That plow is of
use. If all 4the plows in the land
Vould be exempt from -work for
live years I would not the man
and the cattle rejoice ?
But hold on how would the
man 'his family, his cattle live?!
vii(i how the weeds would grow
over their fields.
And who would, who could pay
the taxes when the plow vested in
