Caution i Emigrants. The aged
and infirm should never attempt to
come to thh country, for if they do,
nine case out of ten, they will find
their graves before they reach this
point. Those that are consumpted,
had better never start, unless they
travel in small companies, for, in large
companies tbe dust is so great that
it would tc injurious to their com-
plaint"1, but if they would travel in',-, nl iuitable for corn, (but in some

Am I asked, do I think the route
I - r ill I -
across the mountains to be healthy?
1 answer, that I do think it healthv
this: agea persons inai are or nave
w. r- - -
es from the mf untains.thcy feel them
selves braced up so much that they
fancy themselves in the bloom and
vicor of youth, and act according ns
if they were, and thus their bodies
(all a victim t their imprudence.
But, am 1 asked, do I think the route
'dangerous ou account ol toe Indians:
I would answer that, with caution
and care, I uo not think it dangerous
in the leai. 1 should not be the
lenst uneasy but that ten persons,
with proper cure, might pa3 from
the states here with perfect safety.
Am I asked, is the way practicable
for wagons? 1 answer, it is to with
in about one hundred miles of the
Willamette falls, and from where
wagon conveyance ceases, water
conveyance may be had.
I will now speak some of the coun
try. From the i;cean to the Cas
cade mountains is about 150 or 200
miles. These mountains run para!
iel with the ce-asts. The country
north ol the Columbia is not suited
to agricultural pursuits, aa it is very
1 , , , - ,
rocky, gravely, and covered with 1
mense heavy timber valued mosi
for its timber and the fur trade. Tho
country sooth of the Columbia rivi,
and lying between the Cascale moun
tains ard the ocpan, is, by far, the
most interesting part ot Oregon ter
ritoiv. As vou travel souiii irom
tne Columbia river, the soil and cli
mate seems to improve rapidly. The
general face of the count ty is uneven.
and covered ili immense heavy
forest timber. There are numerous
streams rising in the Cascade moun
tains, running west and emptying
their waters into the ocean. On
these streams the yallies are consid
erable, usually interspersed with
prairies and timber. The soil I do
not think is aa rich aa it is in the
state of Missouri, yet it produces
small grain and vegetables well. I
have been here about four months.
and I have traveled considerably o
ver the country, and have endeavor
ed tognin all the information relating
to the country that I could, and will
say that, in joint of soil, this Country
is inferior to most of the western
states; but t li - re are a number oi
persons here from the eastern states.,
and they say that the soil here is far
superior to the soil of the eastern
states. The farmers generally in
form me that they usually get from
"0 to 40 bushels of whent from one
bushel of sowing, and they usually
sow about one bushel and a half' to
the acre of ground. Upon the whole,
I think. Irom the best information I
can gain, that th:s is a better couji-
try lor nil kinds of small gram than
lunv ol Uir. vrctciij Wiales, lot il.u
crops are always sure and certain.
The timber of this country is by far
the best that I have ever seen. The
yallies are usually veiv level much
like the bottoms on the Missouri ri
ver. This country is generally well
watered; spring are common. Do
vou ask me, is this country healihv?
I answer, 1 believe it w. Cut do I
hear you say that there is no country
this side of heaven but thero are dis
advantages to; and what t:re those ol
Oregon? I will endeavor to answer
your question impartially. 1st. The
greatest objection is the wet and rai
ny seasons, which lasts usually about
as long as your winters in the wes
tern states, and at tho same time of
the yeaj. I think it has rained about
one-third of the time during the last
winter' months, k seldom ever
rains us hard as we are accustomed
to see it in the States. This has
been, by tar, the most pleasant win
ter i have seen in any country; hut
I am told by old settler here that
this has been an unusually pleasant
2d. The agricultural port iocs of
the country are too remote from the
ocean or navigation. The climate
the acre, but these places are rare
usually on low marshy ground.)
3d.- The nuthern part of the ter
ritory is. by far, the best portion of
the territory, end that is inhabited
by numerous tribes of Indians that
as yet, are opposed to oar settling
it, (but this is only confined to the
southern part.) Tnese ere all the
objections I see to this country wor
thy of notice, together with the great
difliculiies of getting to this country.
But do yon ask what ed vantage the
Oregon country has ovei the wes
tern states? I will endeavor to an
swer your question so far as I am a
blr. 1st. The climate is more mild
and temperate, not subject to sudden
changes but more uniform; conse
quently, it must be more healthv
than any of the western states, the
winters are warm and pleesanf; the
ground seldom ever freezes, and du
ring the past winter I did not seethe
least ice in the stream. The win
ters are so mild no one pretends to
r ull their cabbage. I am told by the
settlers here that the summers aie
lovely and picturesque beyond des
cription. 2d. This country, at all
seasons of the year, affords plenty of
feed for all kinds of stock, and with
out the labor of man. 3d. Every
thing the farmer has to sell will fore
ver, bring the highest price, for. here
is the wide ocean, which atfords a
cheap and easy conveyance to any
part oi the world; and in turn, all the
store goods and groceries are and
muat forever be much cheaper than
they are or can be in any of the wes
tern states. There are at this lime
a sufficiency of store goods, groceries,
