Tho pleasures of tho day will close with a

the Columbia, river compete with San

At the present time if one or two large

the market becomes overstocked. Cur

and we have no outlet for the remainder.
With connection East equal to San Eran

markets outride for the surplus.
Wc do not now import direct all ! the
foreign goods consumed in our Stato, nor
will we ever until there are such outlets' af

Some houses are importing direct, hut
the fact of their not supplying the market

in shipping to a limited market. " Q.

Concerning- Grain Shipment?.
AsTonn, July 14, 1S7.?.
The farmers of Oregon are very desir
ous of devising some means which will
enable them to realize as' much per bushel
for grain as do the farmers of California.
It U argued that wheat should command
as much at Oregon's seaport an at San
Francisco, and that the caiv-c of iknot do
ing Kis tho location of that seaport.
"We yiU admit that the mouth of the
Columbia i iver is a hotter place'for the sea
port than themouth of tho "Wallamet riv
er, hut it is not enough hotter to cover the
difference in' the prices of wheat here and
at San Francisco.
The advantage of Atoria over Portland,
according to the lepoit in your paper, iaJ
four cents per bushel.
The American ship Confidence, just ar
rived in ballast from San Francisco, to
carry grain to Europe, estimates the addi
tional expense of coming heie at 5,000.
She will carry about i;i00tbns, a differ
ence therefore, iii round numbers, of four
dollars per ton, or twelve cents per bushel
in favor of San Francisco, and against
Portland; or eight cents per bushel against
Except that by such vessels going di
rectly foreign from here, Oregon's poit
will be made known in other lands, would
it not be bettor to give this extra $4 per ton
to our coasters to carry the -wheat to San
Franoisco for export, than to giv6 it to for
eign vessels, owned in foreign countries,
of even to' American vessels belonging to
the Atlantic coast? Very few vessels
owned on this coast are engaged in tho for
eign trade, particularly to Em ope. Would1
it ilot be bettor to give the 4 per ton to the
Oregon Steamship Company's boats to
expend on the railroads of our State than
to foreign vessels to carry away and do
posit in the banks of the old country.
Oregon should he tributary to no State,
but equal. Horea poit should have, and
by nature has, all things considered, ad
vantages for shipping equal to San Fran
cisco or Pugct Sound. But it devolves
upon her inhabitants toaftbid her sea port
the facilities furnished by the improvement
and devolopement of a countoy. f
In oi der that wh(at for expoi t ma' bring
as high a price in Oregon a in San Fian
cisco, our foiign tiade must bo dirqpttp
and f o. Under like circumstances, a ves
sel can come fiom Liverpool to the Colum
bia river as cheaply as to San Fiancisco,
but it cannot come hither by tho way of
San Fi ancisco as cheaply, nor can it come
directly hither jn ballast and cany out
grain as. cheaply as it could go to San
Fiancisco with cargo and tako away the
same amount of grain.
Aforo business and trade in this State are
necessary tp bring vessels heie diuctwith
cargoe. . r
One way to increase the trade is to fill
the State. with immigrants till eveiy quar
