lake from a correspondent of tin
Epitcopal Methodist, written fian
Portland, Oregon, which will he inter
esting to the many friends of Mr
EfBnger, especially in Rockingham,
where he was raised and is so wel
known : "Soon after landing I pro?
ceeded to the residence of Col. Wm,
II. Filing??!', formerly of Ilarrisosburg,
Virginia. He has been in Portland,
for the last six years, and has been
very successful in tho practice of law.
lie also holds the position of Major
General ol the Oregon State Militia. As
a Virginian,! met with a hearty wclceme
but as the bearer of a letter from his
sister,Mrs. Johnson,of Ilaymarkct,Ya.,
I was treated by him and his household
almost as an intimate friend. With
tears iu his eyes he talked about his
'?little sister" he loved so dearly and
who was so far away. Again and
again he thanked me for seeing her and
coming to tell him et her. He apolo?
gized for his emotion; but I told liim I
could entirely sympathize with him in
it. as I also left two sisters in Virginia,
and the separation trom them I found
very hard to bear. The hearty Virgiuia
hospitality of this kind family made my
stay in Portland very pleasant. 1
csuld hardly realized that I had not
known them before."

P-ettf.ktiian vs? Stated.?Last
week we noticed that Mr. Robert
Ilarnsberger had threshed over 1.G00
bushels of wheat from ttfty-*ve acres of
land, and stated it to be an average of
twenty-two bushel? to the acre. We
do not know how it happened that we
made such a mistake, but those who
read the statement could readily cor?
rect it for themselves. The average
sviis about thirty bushel? to the acre,
and the wheat of first quality.? Valley
The train from the Shenandoah
Valley carried about 475 barrels of flour
