"As Others See I s."
A-correspondent of the San Francisco
Spirit of the Times gives tho following
notice of points in Clackamas county:
" The next point of interest is Milwaukie,
celebrated as containing the famous L.u
elling orchards, some fruit of which was
exhibited in the Oregon department of tho
late Imlu trial Fair '111 San Francisco. I
have lx.cn told that when fruit was less
abundant in early days, apples sold for
one dollar apiece. Clackamas is next,
and then Oregon City, the first capital of
the State, situated on the Willamette, fif
teen miles from Portland. It has the
honor of being the first city established in
the State. In lw. the lir.st cabin was built
here by Dr. McLaughlin, a pioneer factor
of the Hudson 1 Jay Co. The missionaries
of the M. F. church settled in this place
in l?Ii), encouraging other settlers. Tho
first Governor of the Territory of Oregon,
elected by the Provisional Government,
was inaugurated in lt-4, and the first
newspaper published in the Territory ap
peared in this place in 143. Previous to
ld (when the Capital was transferred to
Salem) Oregon City was the governmental
city of all the broad area culled Oregon,
embracing the region 1101th of California,
lying between the Paeitie ocean and the
Rocky mountains. The main points of
interest at tho present time are the falls
and locks, the river furnishing sufficient
power to run a hundred manufactories.
The scenery is extremely pleasing, and a
ride along the bench f the cliff above the
level of the town, gives the stranger a
comprehensive view of its varied attrac
tions, both natural and artificial.
Beer Did It.
New Era, July 22d, lSTg.
Editor E.YTEiiriUsE, In .your issue of
the 10th inst. I notieo several communica
tions and remarks in relation to the picnic
at New Era on the 14th, all of which fail to
treat the subject in its projier light. Citi
zen complains that the precinct ollicers
didn't do their plain duty in not arresting
some of the lenders at an early hour, an
other claims to have had a gooif time, but
I think the whole thing was a bold impo
sition upon every lover of a quiet Chris
tian Sabbath, nil" of which was instituted
to add to the collers of the railroad com
pany. The whole was started in Portland ;
the beer was brought from there, and
drank freely by all both beer and wine,
and other intoxicants, and why should
the precinct officers go around hunting a
case among so many drinkers of the ar
dent? Christians have no desire to see the
Sabbath desecrated among us with a
band of martial music, which can be heard
for miles away, for the sake of a beer
dance on Sunday. Now what will be the
result to the tax-payers of this county
when they pay the ex(ense of the three
suits now" pending in tho Circuit Court.
The Unitarians had their plcuic, the Ore
gon City people the Fourth of July, and
110 beer, anil no quarrel, and it is to bo
hoped the Turners will leave their beer at
home, and the Sabbath to rest, or bid us
Who says we shall not yet become tho
manufacturing centre of the Pacific coast?
Mr. Chas. Gates has recently moved his
carding and other machinery into the
building which occupies the site of the
old Oregon House. He was disappointed
in procuring water-power at Viola, and as
steam is otherwise necessary in his busi
ness, he concluded- to put up a steam en
gine. Mr. Gates intends, besides carding,
batting and making rolls from wool for
the citizens of our county, to introduce
the manufacture of several articles of
Celt. Hats, slippers, underskirts, saddle
blankets, etc., etc., are a few of them to
which he intends to devote his time. Wo
do not believe thatthere is another factory
of the same sort on this Northern coast.
consequently he has a large field in which
to operate. We understand that some of
our leading merchants intend giving the
necessary financial support to keep it 'in
our midst. As many of our citi.ens often
complain of our slowness Ac. here, we
hope they will not let this opportunity
slip to build up a new trade, which may
bring many families and much money
Oregon City, July J0th,-lS73.
EniTon ExTKnruisE : At our April
school meeting, a motion was introduced
to refund to Mr. Worthington the sum of
$55, costs, iYe,which he had incurred in de
fending himselfagainstacliarge of assault,
alleged to have been committed by him
on one of his scholars. No second could
be found, and after some discussion, it
was witiidrawn. Now comes the ques
tion : Have the directors a right in res
ponse to a petition to reimburse him that
amount out of the public school fund?
It seems to me that, as all arc 1:0m-
1 plaining of the heavy taxation to support
! our school, that the act is not only indis
creet, but, to use a nuld expression, a mis
appropriation of the people's money. If
this is the way our money is spent, no
wonder we have to cut down our teacher's
salaries to a disgracefully low figure. We
learn by report that only two of the
directors are to be blamed for the above
action, as ono of them protested against
it. Yours for inquiry. Kaw,.

after eating, or the food sours cn thestomach.
The sides tremble, there is difficulty in breath
ing, headache, dizziness, nervousness, bad
breath, irritable temper, loss of strength. If
any of these symptoms exist you may con
clude you are dyspeptic, or, that your liver is
out of order. The gast ric juice of the stomach
for the purpose of dissolving the food has
become too weak, consequently the food fer
men's giving rise to the dstressing symp
toms above mentioned. We must first make
the gastric juice strong enongi to take hold of
the food and dissolve it as soon as it reaches
the stomach. White's Pkairik Flower
taken before or soon after eating, before fer
mentation commences, cures all such cas.-s.
