"It seems to mo," remarked one oi

"This is only one case in ahundred,
and I am beginning to loso faitli in

haven't had any need for their ser

Correspondence of the Capital Journal
EniTou .U'CKNAi.: In the year
above written. tho p.'nple of the
Territory of Oregon were all very
btwy hewingoutfor themselves beau
tiful farms and adorning them with
such improvements as their good
taste would suiruest. The writer at
tills particular time was a resident of
Polk county and lived near where
Dallas the eountyseut now stands,
and sometimes cmrturcd in one kind
of manual labor, but his chief busi
ness was firming.
There wero quite a number of
single men In this neighborhood
who had crossed tho plains in tlio
year of 18-la l-f-0-7, and hadtakon
up land, and had commenced to fin
pi live and adorn the same witlisuch
improvements, as wero considered
necessary. There seemed to lie a
spirit of contentment amenu: this
class of citizens as well as with all
other classes that had made their
j-wuv itrtiirfm-fjr luiy-uriior way
that people could conic In totlils,onu
of the most beautiful spots of coun
try on God's green earth.
Tho situation was truly grand,
and (mo thai shall recur to our
memory often whl'o wo plod on our
way through this life, llelng thus
surrounded by all the beauties of our
adopted home and knowing that we
were some 2000 miles away from
our former civilization and there
fore would have to depend upon
our own resources for almost every
thing that would tend to miiKO us
a happy and contented people.
This being Hie caso tho ilrst tiling
to be done was to establish school
houses and churches, which was
soon done and a state of civilization
thereby sustained that would render
us comparatively safe from the in
ollnatlonof man to always retrograde
wherever there Is no law, education
or Christianity to counteract such
Inlhieiices. At tills time there was
but 0110 college or seminary of learn
ing of any note iu tills territory,
then coniniislnir all of Washington,
and Idalio.aud that was the germ of
what Is now tho Willamette uni
versity, situated in Salem, while
there were many school houses
built all over tho country, which
were used both for school pursoscs
and also for churcli, where tho
young buds wero taught to
shoot up iu accordance with
tlio best Instructions that our most
favored toaohors wero iu pos
session of, both mentally, morally
and religiously. While it Is true
that our facllltlew for knowledge,
sciences and religion, were limited,
yet wo wero able to plant tho germ
Into which lias budded and bloom
ed 11 system of education far boyond
our niot sanguine expectations,
oqual almost to any In our govern
ment. Instead ol having only 0110 school
as formerly, wo have many colleges
and seminaries located at almost
overy point of any note in this state,
where art, science and nature aro
taught In all their varied characters
according to the latent improve
ments. Ilesldes this we are now
blessed with uhurches in almost
every neighborhood in this state,
where the gospel is taught both to
the old and young from tlio nulplt
and stand, In every community,
which to my mind is tho great
secret of our prosperity lu olvllizn
tlnn and the rtae arts. Show me a
place where there Is no civilization
and I will show you u place where
the holy liitile or Its religion has 110
standing unil 1 will show you
place where tlu people aw nothing
If this artlule is aoueptablo I will
follow It with Wldtlwr on a different
