almost all the agricultural produc
tions of industry and wealth, give
unmistakable evidence of the en

of her soil. Bounded nortli by
Marion count', east by the Cas
cade mountains, south by Lane
county, and west by the "Wil
lamette river, this locality possesses
advantages for exporting by water
its vast agricultural productions
equal to any of the interior coun
ties of the htate. .hrom informa
tion furnished by IIon.J.II.Dotithit,
an old and reliable citizen of Linn
county, we glean the following
facts :
The navigable waters of the Wil
lamette form the river line of the
western boundary of this county, a
distance of about thirty-seven
miles. The western portion is a
level of gently undulating prairie,
about forty-one miles from north
to south, and an average breadth
of fifteen miles from east to west.
The prairie lands are frequently in
tersected by small rivers and
creeks of pure running water, with
occasional belts of timber, and
comprises the most thickly popu
lated portion of the county. lhe
face of the country then gradually
rises into hills, as yon approach the
eastern boundary, till you reach
the summit of the Cascade moun
tains, covered with dense forests of
f i r, ced a r, and pin e. The h i 1 1 1 an d s
are settled a distance of about ten
miles eastward, and almost the en
tire length of the county from north
to south, giving an area to the set
tied portion of this county of over
six hundred thousand acres.
This county has three natural
divisions, the first of which is that
portion lying between the North
and South Snntiam rivers, and
known as the "Forks of the San
tiam." This portion of the county
is again almost equally divided by
the Thomas and Crabtree forks.

Dickey, Esq., relative to the natu-
al resources and industrial wealth
of this portion of Linn county, may
be considered as entirely correct,
as coming from a gentleman well
qualilied to give facts regarding
that portion of country for which
he speaks:
county :
The general nature of the soil is
abktekloam with a clay subsoil,
producing large crops of grain, such
as wheat, oats, llax, etc.. and is
well adapted to stock-raising, pro
ducing both wild and tame grass
in abundance. The water, for
family use, is equal to that of any
other portion oi t lie State, and the
climate is mild, temperate and
healthy. The immigrant can ob
tain provisions, seeds, tools and
snnnlies of all kinds, with which
to commence !

1 he third division is located be
tween the Calapooia ami the south
line of the- county. It has an aver
age length of about twenty-five
miles, with a breadth of about
twelve miles of level land, with a
valley extending up the Calapoom
a distance of about fifteen miles.
Settlements extend for several miles
back into the hills, and some of
the finest timber common to the
Willamette valley is found in this

at as cheap a rate posue Aorui jrownsvi ue, is suu-
any of the older ated m as good a district til farm
ing land as is to be lound m the
county has three dry goods stores,
churches, one
ceeding fine quality, and especially
adapted to tho production of all
kinds of cereals, although roots,
vegetables, fruit, and the various
tame grasses flourish correspond
ingly well with grain. The soil h
easily worked, very mellow, ar.d
but little affected with drouth.
The general character of the soil
of the hill lands is a reddish clay
loam, of good quality, producing
vegetables, fruit and grain, when
cultivated, but is better adapted
to grazing and stock-raising than
other farming purposes.
Gold, silver and lead CAist in
this county in the Cascade range,
but its agricultural wealth practic
ally exceeds the mineral resources
of any locality, and the people have
wisely turned their attention to the
cultivation of the soil.
The Oregon Central Railroad is
being surveyed and located the en
tire length of the county, and will
doubtless be in successful operation
within a couple of years.
The enterprising farmers and
mechanics have purchased and fit
ted up fair gioUnds in the vicinity
of Albany, where annual exhibi
tions of industry, skill and agricul
tural wealth lire made, that are not
only an honor to the peojle of this
county, but would do credit to any
locality in the older States.
This county holds cut flattering
one grocery, three
t his coast, good schools and s
houses being established within
two or three miles of each other
throughout this portion of the
county. Most of the different re
ligious denominations are l
sented here, and meetings lor re-
ligious worship arc
