A Xetter From Oregon.
October 15th, 1875.
Ei. Republican: In our last let
ter we loft our readers at Salem, the
capital of misty land of Webfoot.
After spending a few pleasant days
with new formed acquaintances, we
are once more aboard the steamer en
route for Portland, the metropolis of
i he! St ate. "What all we saw we can
not hern enumerate, but for the
most part we saw dense forests of fir,
balm and cotton wood: the dark
labyrinth of the moss covered trunks j V( the journey was made more
forming seclusions into which man ! 0:lsjv thaw they expected. They ex
doos not often wish to penetrate to , prt.ss thomolves vei-y well satisfied
break the silence that reigns amid
those venerable monarchs of the for-
ed. For sonic time we saw beauti
ful farms, but they were soon left bo

It is near noon when we notice the

we conclude that we are Hearing
Wo step ashore above the falls and
proceed on toot to the base and view
with no little interest this. one. of
numberless instructive works of na
ture. These falls are about thirty
iivo miles above the mouth of the
Willamette. The water leaps from
bowlder to bowlder, daskes madlv
onward only to be hurled foaming
and hissing with more violence
against the next projecting rock, or
l)e hurled over a steep and. rocky
precipice wild and frantic into Ihe
foaming abyss below. It soon con
tinues its journey toward the broad
Columbia as calmly as though noth
ing had transpired to mar irs
tranquility. Thus this mighty sheet
of water continues its monotonous
routine year after year. Some twen
ty years ago a steamboat with its
precious cargo of lives went over
these falls and all on board perished.
At 3 p. m., we stepped aboard an ele
gant coach on the Oregon and Cali
fornia railwav and sned awav at no
slow speed. It occurs to us
there undoubtedly has been a mark
ed change in this part of what was
once known as the "Wild West," in
the last, half century. The red man
little thought of losing his coveted
huntinggrounds so soon. It is still
early when we arrive at
where we conclude to stop, and cast
our lot among her energetic inhabi
tants. This is the largest city north
of San Francisco, it being the princi
pal northern port of the wheat ship
ping trade, many foreign vessels load
here for foreign countries. Besides
liaving splendid facilities for shipping
io the high seas by water, there are
two rail roads, and a fair prospect
iora road direct to Salt Lake, con
necting there with the Union Pacific
for the East. It has every advantage
to heroine a citv ot importance. To
uive your readers some idea of its
"rowth we would state: "In the:
year 1873, Portland contained a pop
illation of 8,729, and in 1875, 13,102,
besides a population of several hun
dred Chinese." These refuse to give
their names or value of property,
thus they avoid taxation which is no
satisfaction on the part of the tax
payers of our city. In the cause of
education she has kept pace with civ
ilization and public improvement.
Splendid churches speak for the re
ligious denominations of the place,
while amide provisions have been
made for the poor, the sick and the
afflicted, who are thrown on the
charities of the world. We will not
prolong our description of our wes
tern city at present, but hope to be
able to give something in the future.
GOSSIP AND NEWS.
Mr. Russell L. Smith left on the
steamer "J. L. Stephens" for San
Francisco. We learn that he has
stopped at San Jose, Santa Clara Co.

From a dispatch received in this
city to-day, intelligence reaches us
that the Indians at the Umatilla res
ervation are threatening war. The
cause of the trouble seems to be on
account of a Hue of telegraph that is
being built through the reservation.
These noble red men of the primeval
forest think they have seen quite
enough of American civilzation to
suit them. They have arrayed them
selves in direct hostility and declare
that not a pole shall be planted or a
wire stretched across the illihe dona
ted them by Uncle Sam. Military
forces will be sent immediately to
protect those at work on the line.
Alas, poor, miserable, red men, thou
art no longer able to say "the white
man shall goat my bidding." And
when this once numerous tribe shall
become extinct, who will there be to
shed a tear over their grave? "Not
We have in our midst two immi

Rev. Anthony Clemen and wife
are now with their son Thos. Clem

with Oregon, and the probabilities
are, they will be likely to remain.
The State Fair, which will close
to-morrow, the 16th inst., is said to
be the most successful one ever held
in the State.
The report reached the city yes
day, that one Lewis Miller, living bo
low this place, had been shot and in
stantly killed, by his nephew, Mc
Gibbs. It appears that Miller and
his wife were having some little dif
ficulty when MfQibbs interfered. In
the melee McGibbs seized a shot gun
and discharged it at his uncle; the
load taking effect in the face and eyes;
Miller was instantly killed. The
young man gave himself up to the of

proven that the act was commit ted in

A dastardly plan to murder one of
our bust citizens was unearthed last
Saturday. It appears that, A. K.Me

apprised of the plot, ami was at the
house of Mr. Scudder with a posse of
resolute men, and after waitinir a
short time Alctiinniss and Broekman
made their appearance and cautiously
entered the house in their ock feet,
pistols in hand, and started to go up
tairs to Scudder's sleeping room, but
as they did so Sheriff (I room and his
men entered with cocked pistols and
ordered them to throw hands up,
which they did, and were secured
without further trouble.
McCIinniss was taken to Kearney,
