Scottsburg, Douglas County, PO 56 miles north west of Roseburg, on the lower Umpqua at the head of navigation on that river, and 26 miles from its entrance into the ocean. The town is in a very interesting section of country, stored with wealth which only needs the hand of industry, aided by capital and intelligently applied, to develop it, and make this one of the most important districts of the state. The river, below Scottsburg is a broad, clear and beautiful stream, though obstructed in one or two places by rapids, with a harbor at its mouth admitting large vessels, but having a bar off the coast, which is dangerous to pass in rough weather. The prolific fisheries, the grand forests and the rich agricultural and grazing lands of the upper valley, constitute a resource capable of supporting a large town. It has a district school, a lodge of Good Templars, and other social institutions. A small steamer plies between Scottsburg and Gardiner.

Crawford George A, postmaster

St. Helens, Columbia County, PO and County seat, is pleasantly situated on the bank of the Columbia River, eighty miles from the ocean and thirty miles north west of Portland. Here the noble river is upwards of one mile in width, and at .St. Helens the deep channel by the bank affords a most complete harbor. The town is now small, and to the casual observer would seem unimportant, but back of it is a country of great though undeveloped resources, which promises it a bright future. The towering firs which line the river bank and clothe the hill sides in perpetual green invite the cupidity of the lumberman, while beneath their roots are veins of coal and iron ore, presenting all the material requisite for cheap and extensive shipbuilding. The banks of the Clyde, with its miles of ship-yards, and the city of Glasgow, with millions of capital, may yet have their counterpart by this peaceful harbor of the broad Columbia. One of the largest steam saw-mills of the State is established at St. Helens, capable of cutting 10,000 feet of lumber dally. Schools and churches are maintained, and the foundation of a large town is laid.
