Condition of the Farming Interest In England.
Most of our readers aro aw arc that sinco
1874 farming has been a losing business to a
very large proportion of Engliuh farmers. A
succession of very wetandcold summers, com
bined with American competition has been
tho cause; and the sums that have been lost
arc simply fabulous, and tho hard-working,
w ell to do farmers, w ho ha o been ruined by
causes entirely beyond their control, is le
gion, Present prospects aro more encourag
ing but the remark on every hand is, "It will
tako a succession of extra good crops to put
us right again." I was greatly surprised to
learn on what a largo scalo farming is carried
on here. Through Yorkshire, Liuconshiro
Cambridgeshire, as well a in many of tho
Midland Counties, 400 acres iB quite an ordi
nary sized farm, and they go up to 600, 900.
1,200, and many of them in theirteens.
I spent quito a time with one farmer in
Cambridgeshire who is farming 1,800 acres,
and he is not an exception. Tho outlay re
quired to stock and equip these farms is a for
tune in itself. Horses by the score, at 200 to
400 dollars each, ttore steers by the hundred
at "from 55 to 70 dollars, ttore sheep by the
hundreds, at 7 to 10 dollars. Then tho mat
ter of machinery is a large item; portable en
gines for plowing and threshing at 3,200,
sometimes two of them on one farm. An
other item on artificial fertilizers, and another
oilcake, Indian corn and bran, again creep
up into the thousands Then a small army
must be paid dvcry w eek. Then comes tho
inevitable "rent day"; tho taxes, tho tithes,
church rate, road tax, poor rate, drain tax
and school tax; and 1 am sorry to say ttutt
in many places, I heard the latter almost com
plained of. It will readily bo seen that a
poor crop, not to say an utter failure, is a
serious matter. Corr. Lhe-Sloek Journal.
Changing Conditions in American Farming.
It is not stranpo that year by year the
grain aud live stock pioducts of our country
increase faster than does tho population. We
liao been an exporting nation, and each year
with an equal yield per acre, tho surplus for
export grows larger. Tho increased acreago
put into cultivation each year, more than
supplies the wants of tho imcrcased population.
Until now, good markets have been found
for the surplus. Homo markets have been
improved, and now foreign markets have been
developed. Ono of the most striking illus
trations of this is seen in tho exports of meats.
Thq quantity of preserved meats sent to for
eign countries is enormously greater than it
was a few years since ; and tho now branch
of export trade that in fresh meat aud livo
animals has already become an important
factor in the prosperity of both American and
Thoughtful men look to the f uturo not with
out somo anxiety. The question is not an
idle one "Where are markets to be found
for tho surplus of American farm products, if
they continue to increase as rapidly as they
have in tho past?" Of course the time is not
very far distant when all available low-priced
lands of this country will bo under cultivation,
and the increaso of production will bo much
less rapid. It is also true that the home con
sumption promises to increase even faster
than in the past. But even now, gi ing a few
years of abundant harvests, both in this coun
try and in Europe and the problem of the
salo of onr surplus at a profit would be a very
difficult one, Xationa I Lhe-Stock Journal,
Exporting Raw Materials.
Tho ugliest featuro of the export trade of
California is the fact that we export so much
in the shapo of raw materials. Our wheat
should go in tho shape of flour, instead of as it
does, just as it comes from tho thrashing ma
chine. 'Our wool should go at least ia a
cleansed form, instead of its dirt, as it does;
perhaps wo should havo said in the form of
yam or cloth. Our hides should go out of the
State in tho form of leather) or rather in the
form of boots and shoes and harness. No
country ever became truly prosperous, anfl to
country ever supported a large population,
whilo its commerce was employed in ttio ex
port of raw material and in tho import of
manufactured articles. Agriculture and com
merce cannot alone build up a State; manu
factures must bo a co-ordinate industry with
them. We need homo markets, which can le
supplied only by manufactures. Itecord-
Success to tho Fruit Canneries.
Canning fruit for export in California is
comparatively anew industry, but, notwith
standing, it is to this industry that the pres
ent boom in fruit culture is chiefly due. We
like to ship our green fruit to Chicago and
New York and realize large profits, but there
is groat risk in tho business, and at best this
trado can ditnose of but a small, verv tiltrc-U.
amount of fruit. To tho canneries wo uru'Jt-
look for the great market. When once care
fully put up in cans, fruit can bo kept almost
an indefinite period, and can be shipped to
any pirt ot the world. The markets for green
fruits aro easily glutted, but for canned fruit
tho market is too extensive and too continuens
to be supplied in a day or a week, or ever.
Those who contemplate, going into the fruit
butincu will do well to make their calcula
tions on tho maikct the canuirica promise
rather than on those that call for green fruit

From a gentleman who arrived last evening

particulars in regard to Mr. George E.Strong,
of Salem, whom wo reported a day or two
since as having wandered off into tho moun

a fit of mental abberation. Mr. Strong, who
has until lately been an agent of tho Oregon
Military Road Company, is well known in
this city, having at one timo been assistant
editor of tho Orcgonian, was coming from
Linkville in company with General John F.

road about fifteen miles from Springfield,

A Correct list or Oregon nnd Washing
An item has been going tho rounds of our
exchanges lately, says tho Talk, purporting to
bo a list of tho graduates from this Stato
and Washington Territory at West Point,
which is incorrect in its main points as far as
Oregon is concerned, and leaves Washington
Territory shorn of her cadet glofy in the lato
war. The facts are these, as we clean them
from an old pioneer, and ono who knows
whereof ho sneaks : Oregon's first cadet was
Adair, of Astoria; her second, Medorum
Crawford. Jr . and not Lane: tho latter never
graduated there. Although wo believe he
served some three years and 8 months, and if
our memory is not at fault, young Lane was
with tho party of Southern cadets who
hoisted tho rebel flag on one of tho
towers of West Point, and who were
mot in the building by tho cadets of
the loyal States, driven out, tho rebel flag
lowered, and the stars and stripes thrown to
the breeze. The next day all the Southern
cadets resigned, young Lano with them. Tho
third, Lieut. Fred, Schwatka, of Arctic fame,
and the fourth, Lieut. Scott; tho fifth will bo
young Geary, son of Rev. Dr. Geary, of Eu
gene City, who will graduato in June, 18S2,

A. Brooks, of Lako county. Washington
Territory was honorably represented in tho
late war by her first gradmtc, Capt. Robot t
Collins, who lost a leg at Gettysburg, nnd is
now on the retired list. We havo been sur
prised to see the item referred to pass through
so many papers of Oregon and Washington
Territory, without a single attempt to correct
it. It is a matter of history, and as such
should bo correct in a few of its leading fea
tuns at least.

Mr. H. Villard had a conference with some
forty ol the prominent business men of this
city Saturday afternoon at tho rooms of the
Merchant's Protective Union. Thomeetingwas
presided over by Mayor D. P. Thompson.
Tho distinguished visitor was introduced by
Mr. Kenneth Macleay, and in a speech of an
hour and a half's duration, explained clearly
and plainly to his listeners his views and in
tentions in regard to tho all absorbing topic
of transportation. His remarks wero to the
effect that those Portlamlers who imagined
that it was his intention to make this city the
incus of the entire transportation system of
tho Northwest and not to mako connection
with deep water
AT THE SOUND
And effect railroad connection w ith California,
wero mistaken. It was his intention not to
discriminate in favor of or against any town,
but as this matter of transportation was
purely a business afiair, it was his purpose to
so conduct it as to assure tho best interests of
tho company and the producer, and if wheat
could be shipped cheaper from Kalatna or the
Sound than from this place, it would be done.
In such acasoour merchants could build ware
houses hero and havo their wheat shipped at
theso points. In any event tho rivers ought
to bo dredged and kept open to navigation.
Mayor Thompson stated that tho dredgo
would snon bo ready, and that the working
time still available would bo amply sulh
KKMOVE THK OBSTRUCTION
Which at present impedes our navigation nnd
that hereafter tho city would raiso
by taxation the sum of $20,000 yearly which
would bo sufficient to pay Iho expenses of tho
dredge in keeping the liver open. In answer
to objections urged against tho picpayincnt
of freight Mr. Frescott satisfactorily explained
that tliero wero several bundled stations on
their lines, and it was not practicable on tho
ground of economy to havo an agent at each
and that they picferred to collect from tho
merchants hero whom thoy know, and 'et
them collect from their customers. Mr. Vil
lard hinted at tho probability of largo iron in
dustries being started hire, and stated that it
w as possiblo ho might lunnlinoof steamers
direct from here to Liverpool. From esti
mate supplied him by
He was satisfied that tho schemo was fcasiblo.
A steamship could make tho passage from
here to Liverpool by coaling at tho Straits of
Magellan, and coming back with immigrants
bring coal to resupply tho station for tho re
turn trip to Liverpool.
In the course of his remarks Mr. Villard
intimated that Portlamlers wero not fully
awakened to, nor their city prepared for tho
culmination of tho great system of transporta
tion now in course of construction. Ho said
that in a short tiino 1,200 miles of railroad,
tributary to this city, would bo completed and
that in two years wo would havo through
connection with Lako Superior, and bo tho
terminus of a 0.000 miles' stretch of rail. Mr.
Villard and party will leave for tho East on
or about Wednesday next.

Indian school at Forest Grove, 75 in number,
