TIIUKSDAI MOUNl.Nft, NOV. 2, is5. 'Highly Original At the last Stale Fair, the Umatilla Indians took the- premium for the best exhibit of certain articles of garden produce. Having the advantage of a fine climate, favorable soil, and the superintend ence of Major Bnrahart, the agent, a gentle man of very considerable intelligence, they, of course, could produce just as fine garden stuff as if the planting and working of their gardens bad been done by white men. In fact, the Willamette Valley cannot compare with the Umatilla Reservation in such pro ductions at all, as tbe damp climate of the ' former place cannot be obviated by human sklU f and it would be safe lo bet on old 11 Five Crows" beating Cincinnatus or Gen.

Djj imtttaiKwr. "Gold . Mining , -in : Wales. About two years ago a number of -companies wore stirtrOi with a view of working tbe auriferous quartz deposits discov- wed in severul localities in North 'Wales, and such was the confidence entertained at the time in tbe success of Welsh gold mining, that capital was obtained without difficulty from the overocredulous public. Tbe tem porary success of the Vigra and Clo gan mines was the greatest induce ment to enter into these speculations, and tho warning that appeared from time to time in tho Times had little effect upon the investing clust-es. Among the companies formed were the Cambrian, East Cambrian, Welsh.
