"We are happy to greet the Oregon
Gkaxgek, a neatly printed, well filled,
forty-column weekly sheet, hailing irom
Albany Oregon, the center of the grain
producing ami of this partly developed
region. Its fin-t appearance, under the
careful editorial management of Mr. A.
S. fiercer, gives token of the new era now
so auspiciously dawning over Oregon.
"We can bay nothing that will introduce
lie Granger to the favorable notice of
our readers better than the following, cull

In this the first issue of the Oregon
Granger, in accordance with long estab

ductory article. "We might say a good
deal in the way of promises for the future,
and incentives of the present. Hut in our
shoit but somewhat varied experience,
results have always been the guide to

to the contents of our paper we refer all for

2d. Home manufactures. Hd. Unity :
and concentration of labor. 4th. A full

and encouragement of an industrious em

these several departments being our aim,
we enter cheerfully upon the work, be

"WHY WE LOCATED IN ALBANY.
A newspaper devoted to the promotion
of agriculture and the mechanic arts nat
urally seeks a location where ready com
munication can be had with those
engaged in such pursuits. Linn county is
in the fullest meaning of the term, an
Agricultural County. There is larger
per centage of iarming land in this, than
iu any other county in the State, and a
greater number of farmers' in a given area.
The resources of this county, from an ag
ricultural point alone, are suflicient to
sustain and build up a business center
at Albany, of no small importance. But
when we call to mind the fact of its cen
tral location, commanding largely the
trade of several adjoining counties,
the combined railroad and steamboat
transportation facilities, the magnificent
water power at hand and so easily con
trolled, we can but admit that right hore
on the banks of the beautiful
"YVallamet, at no distant day, will rise
the busy mart of exchange, and the man
ufacturing center for such implements as
are required in the cultivation of the soil.
No point in the State offers greater induce
ments to the mechanic or manufacturer Of
small means, and we feel assured that such
opportunitias will soon be embraced.
Oregon should be a Manufacturing State
The reasons why are obvious. Her great
distance for all the manufacturing centers,
places a heavy tax in the way of transpor
tation upon all wares imported.
Again, for the same reason, the time
consumed in transit runs up a large inter-r-t
account, and percentage of exchange.
She has unlimited and available water
power, as well as cheap and abundant
j'uel for steam purposes. Her capacity for
varied productions of raw material in be
yond question. The diversity of trade,
and emplojTment of home labor not only
:etaiiis the ciiculating medium at home,
but creates a home market for all the
Lome products of the State. "We have no
means of determining the exact amount of
money sent out or the btate annually, lor
such things as we could, with little effort,
make at home, but no one will doubt the
statement that the aggregate w millions.
In mler to show the full importance of
home manufactures to the State, we pro-po.-to
publish a series of article?, giving
as nearly as may be, n correct statement
of the import of all the leading articles
consumed in the State. To thi end we
invite correspofidene from all parts of the
State, giving detailed accounts of the fa
cilities for particular manufacturing enter
prises. BOOTS AND RIIOES.
There are one hundred thousand persons
who drar their supplies by way of the
Columbia river. A low average consump
tion would be, say ten dollars for boots
:ind shoe alone. Oregon produces nearly
or quite, hides enough to supply all this
demand for manufactured leather, but
instead of tanning, currying and working
up into iorm for wear, they are shipped to
San Francisco, thence to New York, and
f om there into the. tan-bark region of the
"nterior, to be made ready for shipment to
B -ston, where they or made into boots and
shoes, and rehired to us for sale. Then
,ve pay freight eight thousand miles, and
i isu a ice tor twelve months, and eastern
ribor for manufacturing, besides from
four to six prolits, or commissions on the
And all this when we have the finest
quality of tan bark in endless quantity,
and every needful facility for making
leather cheap, and of the best kind. The
coat counties of the State are one vast
wilderness of hemlock, and no where can
be found a more inviting field for enter
prise than here, in the building up of the
tanning interest. The coast hemlock is of
a very suprior quality, so much so that
the leather made at Astoria has acquired
a reputation iu the e&et, &ud tfottou is win
wsftbt 0?-'jrmnmmAiidii'Vwmiiom ' .'4cr '
consumer. Let men of means look care
fully after this interest, and check the
outporing of our coin.
OUR BRUSn LANDS.
There are thousands of acres of -brush
land in Oregon, that are lying idle, not
even producing pasturage that will pay
handsomely for clearing and cultivating.
A few days since in conversation with a
party living near Ilubbard station, Mar
ion county, we were informed of a case in
point. Fifteen acres of fir brush land,
cleared by contract, ana seeaea to wheat
without plowing, simply "brushing,"
yielded a crop that paid for clearing, seed
ing and harvesting, and gave a net profit I
of six dollars per acre. As long as we
have such records before us, and thousands
of acres of similar brush lands m the
foot hills at merely nominal rate, let us not
fail to encourage the industrious seeker of i
homes to come among us.
LET US IIAYE HATS.
Seldom, indeed, are the people of Oregon
called upon to pray for rain. 13ut at this
time the universal cry in Polk and Benton
counties, and several other localities, is,
"let us have rain." The ground is in
pretty fair condition to plow, but there is
no water in the "Wallamet for Steam
boating purposes, and the warehouses on
its margin still groan with their burden of
wheat. But the worst groan escapes
from the owners thereof, who
arc rich in grain, but poor in
twenty dollars pieces. A good
rain will flood the country with coin, uu.
less wheat declines. Give us rain.
Rrdical changes are imminent. J. D.
Biles, of the Oregon Steamship Co., was
in this city a few days since, arranging
for wheat freights as aoon as the river
raises, and Col. Joseph Teal "is here to
look after the interest of the "W. R.T. Co.
Col. T. informs us that the new boat his
Company are building, is intended to run
direct to Astoria, from points on the Upper
TTallamef. This boat will be ready for
service in about twenty days. Iler capac
ity is 400 tons. She will take on bay 250
tons at Albany or Corvallis, and after
reaching Poitland, tranfer from their
Yamhill boat 150 tons, and proceed to
Astoria with the full load of 400 tons.
This arrangement begins to look as if
Oregon farmers were on the right track.
God speed the day that brings slack-water
navigation from the Columbia river to
Eugene City. Then will Oregon be her
self. That da' i nearer by, "than many
