GRETE. Immigration is the absorbing ques tion with our Webloot neighbors. Tbe Oregonian publishes accounts of enthusiastic meetings, having for their object the attraction of popu lation to Oregon. The Agricultural society have published a book of statistics, a copy of which we have received, having in view the same object. While these proceedings are going on at Portland and through out the Willamette,some three hund red emigrants from the Western Atlantic States are passing down the Valley of Snake river, some in des titute circumstances, .endeavoring to reach the promised land of Ore gon and Washington. Would it not be a pious notion for the Immigrant Aid Association to send out assist ance in the way of transportation and supplies to enable these people to reach their destination. Col. leaning informs us that he took a load of vegetables and corn meal to their camps a lew days ago, and found several families without bread J without money. They I ■re dividing with each other aud getting along the best way they could. To those who had money he sold and to those who had none and some wt he gave, until their present wants were supplied. One old gentleman I he found who hud lost a son, killed j by Indians, and another whose wife ; had been killed by tbe accidental discharge of a rifle. These people, ' notwithstanding the completion of I the railroad, have come all the way j from Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kan- | , etc., with ox and horse teams, j in primitive style, suffering perhaps , twice the hardships of those who | came at au earlier day, depending wholly on themselves aud making calculations for receiving sup Sinke« Creek, I.

Tins Reynolds creek placer dig- j ging», some four or fire miles north of town, on the east branch of that stream, attracted considerable notice last week, and as a friend had kind ly located a claim in cur name, we, in company with Bill Norris, went out on Friday to take a look. Ar riving at the discovery claim we found the Martin brothers and Mr. Reynolds engaged in trying to pros peut with a string of five sluice . boxes, but with an insufficient head j of water ; consequently it will be j ! impossible this fall to form aoy just estimate of the working value of the mines. We tried but one pan,which gave a few colors, but not from the best part of tbe claiip, as they have j begun at the lower end in order to j get drainage and dump, when tbe 1 best prospects are obtained a hnnd red yards above. The gravel and clay in these claims look very well, ' ! wash. 1 Leaving our horses at this point, j we made our way down the creek about a half mile to our locations, but found the bed of the stream so full of boulders and large fir timber j though tho latter is so sticky and tough ns to be very hard to j i as to be uninviting as a location for mining unless the ground should j j prove immensely rich. We did not ; prospect here as the space between the trees and rocks is so thickly cov ' ( . r ed with a heavy growth of willows, j I vine maple and other vines and ; j shrubbery, that it would require | more time than we had at command j to clear the ground preparatory to commencing, and tuen irom appear- • | ances we judged the soil to be very deep. _ . , , fc , . , i Returning, w*e visilea the oia An-1 toine ledge, which crosses the creek j near the discovery, and found some of the queerest rock we ever saw. ; j t a pp 0ar8 to be a kind of conglom-. era(e 0 f j,i a te, stoue-coal, lime-stone, j ai u caj siliceous scinter, trap horn ' ! l) i en j > talc, porphery and baaalt j g uxe( i w ith silver sweat and fused ! by an timonial congelation. Having J been tbu8 explicit we trust no one ' will m i ga pprebend the character of the rock in the Antoine. The min ers gulch have held a meet ing , passed laws, formed a district | and elected Wm. Martin Recorder.; The district is known as Reynolds j Creek. Next spring, when water is j nlentv. Reynolds Creek may prove very fair diggiugs. !
