AS AGRICULTURAL ODE.
BY J. U. WUITTIER.
This day. two hundred years ago.
The wild grapes by the river side.
And tasteless ground-put trailing low,
The table ot the woods supplied.
Unknown the apple's red and gold.
The blushing tint of peach arid pear ;
The mirror of the power told
No tales of orchards ripe and rare.
Wild as the fruits he scorned to till,
These vales the idle Indian trod ;
Nor knew the glad, creative skill,
The joy of him who toils with God.
O Painter of the fruits and flowers!
We thank Thee for Thy wise design,
Whereby thee human hands of ours
la nature's gardeu work with Tliine.
And thanks that from our daily need
The joy of simple laith is born.
That he who smites the Summer week
May trust Thee for the Autumn corn.
Give fools their gold, and knaves their
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall ;
Who sows a nVld, or trains a flower.
Or plants a tree, is more than all.
For he who blesses most is blessed :
And God and man will own his worth
Who toils to leave as his bequest
An added beauty to the earth.
And, soon or late, to all that sow.
The time of harvest shall be given ;
The flowers shall bloom, the fruit shall
If not on earth, at last in heaven.
STATISTICS OF OREGON.
BY A. J. DCFU
This comity is situated in the
southern part of the State, and
bounded north by the Rogue Riv
er Mountains, which separates it
from Douglas, east by Jackson
county, south by California, and
west by Curry county, and covers
an area of about 3,500 square
The face of the country is hilly
and in some parts mountainous,
interspersed with vallies of rich al
luvial soil Its geological features
have both volcanic and sediment
ary indications wth quartz lodes
of gold, silver, copper, and other
mineral deposits, showing to the
experienced miner a district of
great mineral wealth, the soil of
this county is very productive
when properly cultivated, and
well repays the husbandman for
his toil. This county has between
one and two thousand inhabitants,
with between five and six thou
sand acres of land under cultivation
and an assessable property valua
tion of alxmt 250,000. Kerby ville
situated on the Illinois River, the
shiretown of this county, is a live
ly business place, with postotlice,
stores, mechanic shops and other
public buildings necessary for a
flourishing country town. The
other towns of importance in this
county are Leland, Slate Creek,
The following description of this
county furnished the committee by
Dr. Watkins, an eminent practic
ing physician in that county for
quite a" number of years, is a per
fectly reliable statement of facts:
Jo.-ephine county, in the south
western portion ot the State at
tracted attention as early as 1852,
as a locality for placer gold min
ing. The first mining of any im
portance was on Josephine Creek,
which derived its name from
daughter of one of the miners, and
afterwards gave name to the coun
ty. In the" spring of 1853 there
was a great rush to the mines on
Althouse Creek, which rises in the
Siskyou Range, and runs . in a
northerly direction, uniting with
other tributaries forming Illinois
ver. The diggings on Aithouse
were verv rich, tne oea oi uie
stream, 'paying not only heavily
but quite uniformly. At one time
Adams fc (Jo's, books had a thou
sand names to obtain letters for in
the different localities, where min
ers had previously resided ed. Sail
or diggings was then a lamous 10
cahty. a ditch was dug some fifteen
miles long at a cost of some seventy-five
or eighty thousand dollars
to bring water to the rich placers I
of this vicinity, and when fairly
underway paid for itself the tirs't
year. It paid heavy dividends to
its stockholders for ten or twelve
years, and many parties who live
sumptuously every dtvy owe their
fortune to their connection with the
Sailor Di fXgings Ditch Company.
Sucker Creek, a tributary of the
Illinois river, a large turbulent
mountain stream, was extensively
mined from 1854 to 18Q0, but the
diggings are deep, the boulders
are largo and unwieldy, the stream
an unmanageable one, and I think
never made an adequate return for
the labor expended, but Sucker
Creek has rever had its day, and
with cheaper labor and better fa
cilities, it will yet yield a golden
harvest to the hand of adventure.
Canyon Creek, Illinois River
and Galice Creek were mined dur
ing these years, and generally
with an adequate return for labor
Williams' Creek, a tributary of
Applegate Creek, has had for the
last few years a hardy mining pop
ulation, who have met with a mod
erate return. Josephine is a min
ing county, and has had all the vi
cissitudes of such a county. Her
citizens leading a roving life, and
having little to bind them to the
soil mostly left during the Indian
war in 1855 6. Her rich minerals
"brought back to her a renewed
population, however, but the great
Frasier River excitement nearly
depopulated her, and now she is
only the shadow of her former
self! Rut, her rich placers are tar
from being exhausted. There are
rich vein of copper running into
her hills. The most noticeable
one, of bronze, some eight or ten
feet in thickness, in the hills be
tween Waldo and Althouse, but
for some reason attempts to work
it have failed, although it appears
to be of great purity and inexhaus
tible in quantity. Rut the copper
mines down Illinois River, will yet
make this locality famous, the cop
per is found in well defined lodes
and practically inexhaustible. The
question is one of transportation.
Platter & Reach have been run
ning a tunnel ibr the last three
years, through a heavy divide, to
turn the waters of Althouse, so as
entirely to drain the bed of Alt-
house Creek. Hanson tfc Co., have
done the same at another point,
and are now striking it rich. These !
two operations have opened a dis
trict of great mineral wealth, and
which will awaken the old times
in placer gold mining on Althouse.
The returns of the Malachi quartz
lode have been very heavy, I see
by the telegraphic dispatches that
this property has been purchased
by a San Francisco house, who are
pursuing their enterprise with
Though this county is chiefly a
mineral county, yet it has many
quiet nooks and pleasant valleys
which generously reward -the hus
bandman's toil. Fruits flourish as
well as in any portion of Oregon,
and peaches do much better than
in the Willamette valley. The
whole county is well wooded with
the various firs and pines, the most
notable, for majesty, as well as use
fullness, is the lofty sugar pine.
Groves of oak are scattered about
over the valleys, resembling in the
distance, some old orchard, and
nearer by furnishing the most de
lightful resorts for a quiet drive or
a 'brisk canter. To judge by my
own feelings, I should say that tho
climate for pleasantness and salu
brity, conld'not be excelled. The
quiet calm of her vallies, the grand
ness of her mountains, the health
ful infuences of her June air, and
the cool fresh water of her moun
tain streams, all combine to make
Josephine county a desirable place
for residence, but, she lacks those
attractions which bind men to the
soil. She is isolated and shut in
by great mountain cannions. She
is dependent for supplies upon a
slow, laborous and costly trans
portation over the coast range of
Schools, churches, associations,
do not take kindly in such a com
munity as hers, and perhaps above
all she has the inherent vice of all
mining commuities, that for every
dollar taken from her mineral de
posits, she is one dollar poorer.
There is no accumulation, there is
no heaping up by one generation
for the generation which is to fol
low. She sows that others may

Over the Alps in Winter.
THE MONT CEXIS TUNNEL THE
A correspondent of the Phila
delphia Press writing from Brin
disi, Italy, Feb. 5th, says : .
The old beaten track lias been
for centuries by way of Marseilles,
until a new project was conceived
of opening a road through the
Alps. It could be done by mak
ing a tunnel eight miles long, but
this would take eight or ten years.
In the meantime fortunes, would
be lost. So the active brain of
Fell hit upon the novel plan of
dragging a train, lull loaueu, np
the steep incline ot Mont? Cenis
and letting it glide safely down
tne other side. iy this plan a
continuous line would be opened
from Paris to Brindisi,from whence
several lines of steamships would
convey the traveler to Alexandria
in seventy-six hours, making, only
one hundred and forty-eight hours
from London to Alexandria. The
Fell system was carried out and
and proved a success, at least a
success in Europe, which might
not be such in America.
It was this: A middle third
rail was added to the track, aud
elevated high enough to be pressed
by two wheels of the engine, one
on either side of the rail, the
wheels, of course, clamping the
rail in a horizontal position. This
gave such additional power to the
engine that it was not likely to
slip and stop the train. I say not
likely, for in some cases, when the
snow falls in abundance, even these
additional wheels slip on the track.
Rut at the best, crossing Mont
Cenis is a very difficult undertak
ing. You pass along charmingly
as far as St. Michael, through the
most glorious scenery ever opening
upon delighted vision hills, moun
tains, Alps, sharp peaks, that rear
their awful forms in majesty to
kiss the clouds that seem to drop
into their embrace.
Rut now it gets difficult, and
woe to him who is economic enough
to travel by second-class, for the
Mont Cenis train has but two
cars, holding ony twelve passen
gers each, and the express trains
will carry only first-class 2,asse,lr
go i s.
From the miserable waiting
room, at the opening of the doors,
vou dash out like so many released
animals, and forgetful of common
courtesies, hurry to a place if,
happily, you can get one. If not,
you cannot go, even though you
offer to stand all the way for that
would not be according to order
but you must remain for the even
ing train, if by so doing you do
spend the night on the Alps miss
ing all their grandeur and enter
Susa to spend four mortal hours,
until break ot day, in order to
take the Turin train. No wonder
that even well-bred Americans, at
the embarking at St. Michel, should
adopt the motto : ' Go in, boys,
and old is lck take the hindmost,
when such misfortunes befall every
one beyond the twenty-four who
tnay be seated.
To all, I would say, beware of
second-class tickets and the rear of
the charging column. Rut these
difficulties are not the fault of the
system as much as of the officials,
who neglect to accommodate trie
traveling public. The cars, too,
are comfortless ; so small and so
gloomy that most persons will be
disappointed in the long-expected
views to be seen when crossing the
Alps. And upon the broad plateau,
a mile in lenght, where you hoped
to ec so much, you shoot under a
snow-shed, like a great tunnel, and
only emerge again as you begin to
descend. In a year or two the
great tunnel will be completed
perhaps the greatest work of en
gineering in the world, a tunnel
of eight miles without an air-shaft.
Some fear its success when finish
ed, saying it cannot be ventilated
others, that the difference of tem
perature at the ends will cause
such a current to pass through it
that some oontrivance to overcome
this will have to be inventod.
But it will succeed ; science and
art will make old earth bow to
man's behest, and in duo time
Franco and Italy will be united by
this national band of brotherhood,
and the hurrying business man can
dash through this long, dark shaft,
under Mont Cenis, to enter sunny
Italy in a few moments, while the
tourist can patronize tne ".reiisvs-
tern," and climb the longer and
more interesting route over Mont
Cenis. Rut, as we suggested, the
problem lias been demonstrated.
By the best calculation, to go from
London to Alexandria by way of
Marseilles, takes 16 hours, while
via Brindisi 148 hours, saving not
only 28 hours in time, but shorten
ing the actual distance 37 miles.
And whereas the sea voyag by
way of Marseillas is 1,G87 miles,
by the Brindisi route it is only 625
miles, which is to seasick travelers
is a conclusire argument.
New Naturalization Swindle.
Now that the inevitable negro is
in, and entitled to suffrage on the
ostensible ground of universal jus
tice to universal man without re
gard to color or condition, the
efforts to abridge the rights of
that portion of the white race who
have generally voted with the
Democrats,- has commenced. A
bill has been reported from the
Judiciary Committee in the Houso
of Representatives in Congress to
so embarass naturalization, that
until after the next presidential
election no foreigner can expect to
secure citizenship. How far this
Know-nothing scheme will find
favor with the masses of the radi
cals we do not know, but of late
they have exhibited great meek
ness in following every outrage
perpetrated by their leaders. The
tendency is to place all born in
this country, including the negroes,
against all foreign born, whether
naturalized or not.
The 'World comments upon the
bill as follows:
" It will be seen, by this scheme,
no foreign born person can here
after receive a certificate of citizen
ship who has not, at a period four
years previous, made an applica
tion in the form and manner pre
scribed by the bill. The effect of
its passage will be to annul and
cancel every declaration of inten
tion heretofore made, but not yet
matured and consumated by the
actual naturalization or the per
son making it.
It will be all the same whether
he has resided in the country one
year or five; whether he has made
the declaration now required and
taken the legal oath or not. He
cannot be naturalized after the
passage of this bill without making
a new application to a different
court, in a different manner, and
then' waiting four years for natur
alization papers that will confer no
rights until the lapse of a still fur
ther period of six months. If this
unrighteous bill passes, the immi
grant who arrived yesterday -and
those who have been five years in
the country and made the prelimi
nary declaration, will stand on pre
cisely the same footing. By the
proposed law, residence counts for
nothing, if it was a residence prior
to the date-of his application. No
application is to be regarded un
less it was made to the clerk of a
United States court, whereas all
previous declarations ot intention
have been made to State courts.
By the new law none of these dec
larations of intention could be re
garded ; and consequently, if it
passes, there will be a total inter
ruption of naturalizations for four
years and sic months. This is a
vilhanous scheme for weakening
the Democratic party in the next
Presidential election : a desperate
maneuver to save the Republican
party from its approaching doom.
If it succeeds, there will be no
fresh naturalizations till the mid
dle of the next Presidential term.
After having admitted all the
stupid, ignorant, semi-barbarous
negroes, fresh from brutalizing
slavery, to the elective franchise,
the Radicals are now engaged in a
plot to prevent intelligent white
Europeans, who emigrates to these
shores from acquiring any of the
rights of citizenship. 1 he coun
try ought to ring with cries of ex
ecration and remonstrance against
the odious bill to prevent natural
ization. A Hard Sermon. A rather
hardshell western preacher was
called upon to preach a funeral ser
mon,when he delivered himself as
"I've been begged to preach this
'ere funeral sermon, and didn't
want to do it. I never did know
any good of the man. He had
horses and he run 'cm; lie had
cocks and he fit 'em ; and he'd flip
the jack from the bottom kerds.
I've been told he was good at fires.

An eminent physician says that
the white rubber used for nursing
bottles and infant's toys is very
poisonous, causing sore mouth, skin

curvatures and death. In Europe
the sale of it is prohibited by law.
A Religious Card-Player.
A private soldier, by the name
of Richard Lee, was taken before
the magistrate of Glasgow for play
ing cards during divine service.
The following account is given :
A sergeant commanded the sol
diers at the church, and whe'n the
parson had read the .prayer, he
took the text. Those who had a
bible took it out, but the soldier
who had neither bible nor common
prayer book, pulled out a pack of
cards and spread them before him.
He first looked at one and then an-
otner. i he seargeat of the com
pany seeing him said.
Richard, put up the cards, this
is no place for them.' .
Never mind that, said Rich
ard. When services was over, a con
stable took Richard prisoner, and
brought him before the Mayor.
' Well,' said the Mayor, ''what
have you brought the soldier here
For playing cards in church.
' Well, soldier, what have you
to say for yourself?'
' Much, sir, I hope.'
Very good , if not I will punish
I have been.' said the soldier
about six weeks on the march. I
have neither Bible nor common
prayer book. I have nothing but
a pack of cards, and I hope to
satisfy your worship of the purity
of my intentions.'
Then spreading the cards before
the Mayor, he began with the
' When I see the ace it reminds
me that there is but one God.'
4 When I see the deuce it reminds
me of Father and Son.'
4 When I see the tray it reminds
me ot rather, fcon and Holy

me of the four evangelists that

When I see the six it reminds
me that in six days God made
heaven and earth.
Whcn I see the seven it re
minds me that on the seventh day
God rested from the . great work
which he had made and hallowed
When I see the eight it reminds
me of the eight righteous persons
that were saved when Got! de
stroyed the world, viz: Noah and
his wife, his three sons and their
When I see the nine it reminds
me ot the nine lepers that were
cleaned by our Saviour; there
were nine out of ten who never
' When I see the ten it reminds
me of the ten commandments which
God handed down to Moses on
the table of stone.'
When I see the king it reminds
me of the great King of Heaven,
which is God Almighty.'
When I see the queen it re
minds me of the Queen of Sheba,
who visited Solomon, for she was
a woman as he was a man. She
brought with her fifty boys and ;
fifty girls, all dressed in boys ap-l
parel, lor King Solomen to tell j
which was which. He sent lor
water for them to wash. The
girls washed to the elbows and
the boys to the wrist, so that
King Solomen told by that.'
Well, said the Mayor, you
have described every card in the
deck except one.
W hot is tliot V
The knave,' said the Mayor.
I will give your honor a descrip
tion of that too, if you promise not
to get angry.
I will not if you do not term
me the knave.'
The greatest knave I know of is
the constable that brought me
here before you.'
I do not know,' said the Mayor,
if he is the greatest knave, but I
know he is the greatest fool.
The soldier continued :
hen l count how many spots
there are in a pack ot cards, I find
three hundred and sixty-five, as
many days as in a year.7
hen I count the number of
cards in a pack I find fiftv-two,
me numocrot weeks in a year
i nnd there are twelve picture
cards m a pack, representing the
number of months in a year, and
on counting the tricks I find thir
teen, the number of weeks in a
quarter of a year.'
4 So you sec a pack of cards
serves as an almanac, Bible, and
common pra ver book.
The Radicals in Despair.
From the St Lofts Dispatch.
44 Down with the . taxes i"
the cry from all quarters,
fear ot defeat touched the tender
mercies of the Radical ear. De
feats in New Hampshire and Con- o
necticut loomed up before the ob
tuse vision of Boutwell, and even
Grant saw the point, and the tele
graph informs us they both make
haste to head the cry of the poor
they have mocked, and earnestly

Mr. Boutwell was veryanxious
to relieve the country of an annual

reduce the annual burden three
times that amount by a few changes

Mr. Dawes told some plain truths
about the extravagance of his par
ty. Of course it was not agreea
ble. The party was not in the
habit of being talked to in that
manner except by cl d copper
heads. It feigned V irtuous indig
nation, a la Corbin, and putQfor
ward Ben Butler as champion.
Yet the public clearly saw that ag
ter all the denunciations of extrav
agance against Andrew Johnson's
administration, and all the preten
tious claims Of economy made for
General Grant's, the estimates for
appropriations fOr public work for
1870, amount to $24,625,173,
against actual appropriations of
$5,493,c000,last year; that the total
estimates of expenditures for Gov-
ernment the last year of Johnson's
administaation were $303,000,000, O
while the estimates for the next
year, under the present administra
tion, are $331,097,174, an increase
of $28,097,174; that, as Congress
reduced Johnson's estimates $20,

I he people saw the large surplus w

furnished a powerful reason why
that surplus should remain in thfe .

It Mr. Dawes, would remain tho
friend of the administration, not
withstanding what had transpired

to reduce taxation for the fiscal
year commencing July 1st, 1870,
and ending July 1, 1871, $50,000,

$30,000,000 of this sum should be
taken from interrial taxes, and

Nicholas Wain, thouglPa regular
Quaker preacher, was a great wag,
and many are the good things said
by him which are sun current in
certain Philadelphia circles. He
was once travling on horseback in
the interrior of Pennsylvania m
company with two Methodist prcch
crs. They discussed the points of
difTernce in their respective sects,
untill they arrived at the inn where
they, were to put up for the night.
At supper, Wain was seated be
tween the two Methodists, and be
fore them was placed a plate con
taining two trout. Each of the circuit-riders
placed his fork in a fish
and transferred it to his plate, af
ter which each sjiut his eyes and
said an audible grace before meal
The QuakerQi vailed himself of the
opportunity to transfer both of the
trout to his own plate, merely re
