HOLBROOK. Proprietor. AMERICAN WHEAT IN ENG LAND. The following appears in the Port land Standard: J. W. A. Wriglit sends the following let ter from Green Springs, Ala: The question has been often asked by farmers who have been made suspicious by many discovered impositions. "Are Cable dispatches correct which profess to give Liverpool quotations of the wheat markets, as published iu our California and Oregon papers?" To test this very important matter, I made special inquiry while ex amining the cooperative flour-mills—corn mills, as they call them—in Leeds, Oldham and Rochdale. Your readers will under stand that the prices here recorded were actually paid in Liverpool at the dates given for the wheat ground in the mills named. I give them not knowing how they compare with cable quotations of the same dates from Liverpool in our papers, not having complete lists of the latter. If they correspond very nearly with our press quotations for the same mouths, it will tend to increase our confidence in such cable dispatches; if they differ much, we will know we need a more reliable sourw of in formation for onr daily and weekly market reports. Three out of twenty of these co operaiive mills in England and Wales alone use the following amounts weekly: Leeds, 1,000 quarters, nearly hall of it from Cali fornia and Oregon; Rochdale, 1,000 quar ters, half of it from California and Oregon. The Star mills at Oldham, running sixteen stones, consume about 1,000 quarters per week of California and Oregon, and about an equal quantiny of English and Western red wheat. The latter nulls consume every week also some 300 or 400 quarters of our Western maize or Indian corn, none of which is raised in England. The manager of the latter mills kindly gave me, from their books, the following prices paid by them in Liverpool for for eign wheAt in March and April last. March 10, Oregon.......10s. lod. per 100 lb. March 14, California... " " ** " Oregon........ " Gd. " " " March 30, Oregon........ •* 7d. " " " April 13, California..... " " " " April 20, California..... " " " " Another fact of interest they gave me is that California and Oregon wheAt, when it reaches them, averages in weight about 62Jlb per bushel. This shows no great in crease in weight after it leaves our coast. I confess to be very much surprised, as many of your readers will no doubt be, that Oregon wheat is rated by the Eng lish wheat brokers as much higher always than Califoria wheat. I record the fact as they gave it to me. I could not help won dering if the accident may not sometimes happen that they buy a cargo of first-class wheat H8 California and sell it as Oregon Now, would it not bp refreshing, and a groat satisfaction, to send, through a good, sound, fair, well-managed company, con trolled by Patrons on this side and our co operative friends on the other side, a few cargoes of our best wheat, gay thirty or forty ship-loads yearly, from Sau Francisco and Portland to these twenty or more coop erative grain mills of Great Britain. « Cue more point about our great ship ments fpom the Pacific Coast and I have doue. I found to my surprise that our English neighbors are doing all they can to discourage the shipmeut of wheat in bulk. Tb ay contend most stoutly that it endangers their shipping and theelives of their seamen. While I was there, great pressure wu being brought to hear upon Parliament to pass a law prohibiting fur ther shipments of grain to them in bulk. The demand is so urgent that we may as well make up onr minds in the Pacific states to continue for an indefinite time our present system of ^hij ping in sacks. Then the sack problem to solve will remain— how to get them cheapest and best? When we ship to our cooperative friends we cun no doubt arrange to have the millions we buy and ynd over every year returned to us on some satisfactory \> rms, instead ot having them come back is second-hand sacks to be bought by Uo again at two thirds of the price we paid for them the year before. A Boston woman had prepared to elope, but when her husband, hearing of her in tention, came forward with his check-book and offered her money for her <*xpenses, while his face was illumniated with unbound ed joy; she reconsidered the mat* er and concluded not to go. It took all the ro mance away. by a it of ot NEW MINES. Report reaches us of the discovery of some new mines by Bert Stevens, who re sides near Wm. Moore's on the Tumalum. The mines are about eighty miles southeast of Wana Walla city, possibly sot more than six or ten miles east ofsouth. He says the discovery is in a basin high op (a the mountains. The gold which he exhib ited very much resembles that found on Granite Creek. It is coarse, and evidently has not been washed. He obtained a color from top dowu to bed rock. It was aboot five feet to tBe bed rock; he got two pans of dirt, which, at $17 per onnee, the lap posed value of the ore, weighed $6 8T. The discoverer bad been prospectipgon the head waters of John Day's river and other streams in that direction. He found the new mines on his return trip. It was snowing hard, and for fear of being caught in the mountains without supplies be came out. There were also some well defined quartz ledges in the vicinity. He came to this place for supplies And will return as soou as the weather will permit. Othar parties will go with him. Mr. Stevens is very well known here and has the name of being a truthful man. Reports have here tofore been circulated that there were mines off in this direction. Some years ago, two or three old miners were up there pros pecting, and claimed to have struck good diggings, but after they came out they never could find them again. As to wheth er tb is will be the case with Mr. Stevens, we are unable to say. The facts are very well known that indications of good quarts ledges have been discovered in the same lo cality frequently.—IF. IF. Watchman. THE CROPS. The crop returns for October, as pre pared at the Department of Agriculture, indicate a reduction in the yield of wheat nearly one-sixtb, while the quality is some what superior. Every sectiou of the Union indicates a reduced product, except tho Middle States, which have increased about two per cem. The New England States fall off four per cent. The figures point to a yield of abont 250,000,000 bushel*. Tho rye crop is reported four per cent, less than that of 1873, but the quality averages some what better. Barley is about six per cent, less than last year. The oat crop shows n falling off of twenty-three per cent., every Sfction of the Union being deficient. Corn is not up to last year. The tobacco yield is about an average one.— Ex. Homs Ineuikncb.—I f the father ehtsfly talks "money, money" at home, be gener ally rears a family in the worship of the "almighty dollar." If he talks mainlr of horses, games and races, be breeds n hatch of sportsmen. If fashion is the family al lar, then the children are offered np as victims on that altar. If a man makes his own fireside attractive, he may reason ably hope to anchor bis own children around it. My neighbor Q. makes himself the evening companion of bis boys. Tbs result is that his boys are never found in bad places. But if a father hears n clock strike eleven in a club house, or the play house, he need not be surprised if bis boys bear it strike twelve in a gambling-room or the drinking saloon. If be puts the bottle on b i s own table, he need not be surprised it a drunken eon staggers in, by and by, at his front door. Wheu the best friend that childhood and youth ought to bave, be come their foe, their home becomes the starling point tor moral ruin.— Cuyler. A Mammoth Pear.—M r. David Price, re siding about four milei from Portland, near Milwaukee, has left at this office a pear of Mammoth proportion—speaking in a small way. The pear belongs to the variety known as the "pound pear," and weighs thrtfpound». Who can show a larger and heavier specimen of this fruit?— Oregonian. Thi Dakota Tribune says; A three foot vein of coal bas been discovered on the N. P. K. R.afewmiles east of Bismark. Capt. Braithwaite, of the Fontenelle, reports the discovery by him of a nine foot vein crop ping out within fifty yards of the river, about fifty miles above Bismark. The country is foil of coal, and it only needs a limited amount of capital to develop rich and paying mines. The Northern Pacific people are very enthusiastic over the 17th Siding discovery, and propose to utilise it.
