THE OREGON TERRITORY
ITS CAPACITY AND PRODUCTS.-A late number of
the American Agriculturist contains an iotetesting ar
ticle by Thomas J. Farnham, Esq., in relation to the
agricultural capacities of the Orrgon Territory. He
says that a portion of the Territory known as the low
country, is the only part that bears any claim to an
agricultuml character.• This, he says:—"ls bounded
north by the Straits de Fuca and Puget's Sound, lati
wide 48 degrees north, east by the President's Range.
south by the parallel of 42 degrees north latitude, and
west by the ocean; seven degrees of, latitude and
108 miles, of longitude, in round nuniSers 490 by
100 miles, equal to 49,000 square miles; which is
equal to about 31,000,000 of English acres. About
one-third of this may be ploughed, another third
pastured. The remainder consists of irreclaimable
ridges of minor mountains, crossing the country in all
directions. To this should be added Vancouver's
'lsland, 200 miles long by 30 in average width, and '
Washington's or Queen Charlotte's Island, 100 miles
long by an average of 15 miles in width; in both of
'which may be supposed to be the same ratio of arable
pasture, and irreclaimable lands, to wit.: 1,550,000 of
'each. And thus weave a rough, but generally a cor
rect estimate of the agricultural capacities of Lower
Oregon; about 12.000,000 of arable, and 12,000,000
of pastureland. The arable land of other parts of
the Territory, it wine recollected, is so inconsidera
ble as to he scarcely worthy of mention. There are
10,000,000 of acres of pasture land in all the region
east of the President's Range. Thus we have, in Or
egon Territory, 12,000,000 mann of arable country:
and, if we assume the Territdry to extend from lati
tude 42 degrees to 54 degrees north, and from the Pa
cific Oceastu the main ridge of the Rocky Moun
tains, an average distance of 400 miles, we shall have
a total surface of 215,000,000 acres; 32,000,000, the
Isabitable part, !abstracted from this. leaves 183,000,-
0004scres of deserts and mountains."
Re further adds:—"The climate of Oregon, also. is
sitafevomble to groat productiveness. From October
to . April the southerly winds blow, and being upon the
lower country daily and almost incessant rains. From
April to October no-rain falls , anti thoe xceedingly loose
soil becomes so dry, that the grasses wither to hay.
On the tract lying between the Treadent's Range and
.the Blue Mountains, and the Upper Columbia, a few
storms fall in the winter months. During the remain
der of the year neither dew nor r ains descend upon
it; a brown, chea.rlcss waste. But that portion of it
which lies near the streams, will furnish, in winter and
summer : the finest pasture for sheep on the continent.

POSTING' THE BOOKS.—The New; Haven Register
has been posting up the books of the two parties and
the footing up shows but a very meagre credit to the
poor coons. Every State but one (Maryland) has now
voted for members of Congress. These elections
which take place immediately preceding the Presi
dential vote, ate of more than ordinary consequence.
because it is on the House of Representatives in Con
gress, voting by States, that the choice of President de
volves, should the people fail to throw a majority on
any candidate. The States thus far have spoken on
this subject with more unanimity, through their Con
gressional elections, than has ever happened before
since parties were known among us. Of the delega
tions 'of twenty-five Suites now chosen, five only arc
for theyederal candidate (Clay)—the others are Dem
ocratic, save one (Kentucky) which is divided. The
delegations of the first fi.e States which we give to any
include Rhode Island, though it is said the delegation
of that State is divided us to him, though elected by
the whigs—but we wish to be liberal. Pennsylvania is
set down for them, although the gentleman who holds
the bah nee of power professes to be a democint, and i
would, we think, if the election shouldgo to the House,
vote for the democratic candidate. But, even giving
them Pennsylvania, it will be seen that beyond the li
mits of New England, Cluy has the delegation of but
two States—Pennsylvania, obtained by treachery, and
little Delaware, which sends but one member. Mary
land isyet to vote. If her delegation should be for
Clay, it would give him six all told. Let us then po,t
the books for the present year, end see how the account
stands. After all the nuise of the whip they cannot
alter the fig-ures. Here is the resuli:--

HOLD mos.—The editor of the Gazette is in a ter
rible fury at the result of the Mississippi election.—
He says that "one of tits repudiators elected-to Con
gress, is said to be a man of scandalous moral charac
ter, and it is to be supposed that the rest are rogues,
or they would not have run as repudiir-rs.". This
cant about mardity comes with a good grace from a
man oho is every day eulogising a notmi.ms gambler,
and supporting him—.nnt for Congress merely but—for
the highest and most diplifieil office in the world; and
who i 3 in daily intercourse and fellowship with men
who repudiated the payment of a small bill due for a
coppe r which they induced a poor man to provide for
them, and which they pertinaciously refused to pay un
til the law interposed its arm, and forced them to be
honest. Out upon such hypocrisy!

In 1841. the exports from the two ports of New
Orleans and Mobile amounted together to near forty

those two southern cities were considerably more than
a third of the whole. During the same year, the ex

The composition of his address was very good, but his
delivery, owing to his timidity was not what it should
hate been. The n( xt part of the exercises was a de
bate by Messrs. Getty and Roberts. The former of
these gentlemen made a happy effort, and showed much
ability. He, however, was not altogether free from er
rur, them was too much sermonising about his man
of delivery, as well as an incorrect mode of pro
notmcimr his words. The letter gentleman has a good
flow ("language, and very impressive manner; his
argument, (for I cannot say argurrents,) and the quota- i

Oa Wednesday last Hugh B. Orr. was convicted
of burglary, in the Court of Oyer and Tarminer of this
county, and was sentenced to four years imprist•nmsnt
in the Western Penitentiary. On Tuesday morning
about day break, the convict made his escape from the
jail. through a hole which he picked through the wall
after a whole night's hard labor--leaving his hat and
boots. Sheriff Shaver immediately offered a reward
for the appr'hension of the ba:•zlar now in the enjoy
ment of the "largest liberty;" but nothing was a
gain heard ofhim till Friday, when it was discovered
that he had returned to pay our town a• visit the pre
vious night, when and where he stole His Honor Judge
IVilson's hat, and also left one of MU brothers of the
bar minus apair of boots, with which he made honora
ble tracks to "parts unknown." A fair exchange,
says an old maxim, is no robbery, and the refugee, in
view of this, left just no good a hat an d boots at his
late residence, the jail cf Huntingdon county, which
hat and hoots are said to fit the persons with whom
he "swapped' exactly.

THAT Gus.—The great gun completed under the
Idirection of Captain Stockton of the Navy, is the sub
ject of considerable discussion and speculation, and it
is supposed by scientific persons, that it may change
altogether the system of naval warfare. Manufactur
ing n cannon from wrought iron is a novel event. It
is said,the very best pieces of instal and choicest scraps
1 of iron have been melted for this purpose, and after the
gen is forged and bored and turned, it is bound round
with treble hoops ofiron welded and neatly turned,and '
the surface smoothed. The gun is not of the mammoth
proportions, as manybelieve, and is easily worked; the
merit of the improvement consists in the tremendous
bill a:edit:id the immense distance it carries. Three
kegs of gunpowder to a singe charge, and a ball carried
to the dist race of three miles, placesopposition at de
fiance, and renders a navy almost useless. A steam
ship ar'ned with such a gun, tan rake a position out of
the reecho( a seventy-four and tear herall to pieces in
a few discharges. The Success of this improvement
will produce quite a sensation abroad.--N. Y. Sun.
DREADFUL SHIPS% RECK.
We learn, by Mr. Lincoln the driver of the Ells
worth Stage, that a largo English ship went ashore at
Gouldsborn," in the blow on Tuesday night. There
were tiventy-two persons osi board, eighteen of whom
were lost. The four who were saved, reported that the
Capt., olfiiws and crew, at the Lim3 of the disaster,
were all drunk, and that they saved themselves by go
ing into the topmast rigging, and swinging themselves
ashore as the vessel was rolled by the surf. Il'hen
Aliscovived, one of them was found wedges in between
two rocks, and it required the strength &several men
to extricato him. The ' , I-lip was in ballast, and was

From his having made the Spanish language the
so!e object of his study during a residence of two years
in Havana, there is reason to imppose that he has ac
quired a gocd knowledge of their language, the easiest
and most harmonious of all modern languages.
Of his competency to teach French there can be no
doubt, from the fact of his having been a clerk in a
Notary in Paris ; whene he has studied law. WhatMr
