The principal post and depot of the Hudson Bay Company, in Oregon, FORT VANCOUVER, is situated on the Columbia River. Its trade with the Indians was formerly great, but the present business is confined among the whites, supplying the settlers. The shipping is gaily decorated--the "meteor flag of England" and the "Star-spangled Banner," waving side by side, celebrate the Birth-day of the Queen. A good old Englishman, who had been employed many years as a gardener, at Fort Vancouver, often expressed a wish to see his native isle once more. He obtained permission at last, and set sail. Arrived safely at London, he looked at the city of his birth from the deck, nor ever left the ship till it returned to Fort Vancouver. He could not forget the "Company's Garden;" there was no rest for him in "dear England" now. "How use doth breed a habit in man%" [P. 19; exhibited under heading: "Section Fourth."]
