The dis tance trout Snake River Ferry to Spokane FerrV is quite 05 miles, fiom which it will appear what a saving of land travel will bo secured by this discovery of a road to White Bluff a point always accessible by steam. Whito Bluff will, in a short time, be an important point as an entrepot for the upper country. On the SOtli May the expedition un der Capt. A. J.

It divorced the intervening dis tance, and wedded the cities together! But for its furnace, heat, and sinews, it was no thing but a beast, an enormous aggregation of horso power. And I went back to my forge with unimpaired reverence for the intellectual philosophy of my hauimcr. Passing along the street one afternoon, I heard a uoise iu an old building, as of some ouo puffing a pair of bellows. So, without more ado, I stepped in, and, in a corner of the room, saw the chef d'ouvie of ail ma chinery that had ever been invented since the birth of Tubal Cain. In its construc tion it is as simple us a cheese press. 1 1 went with a lever with a lever longer, stronger than that with which Archimedes promised to lift tho world. 'It is a printing press,' said a boy stand ing by the ink trough, with a careless tur ban of bowu paper on his head. ' A printing press!' I queried, musingly, to myself. ' A printing press! What do you print?' I asked. 'Print?' said the boy, staring at mo doubtfully; ' why, we print thoughts.' ' Print thoughts!' I repeated after him, and we stood for a moment looking nt each other in mutual admiration ho iu the ab sence of an idea, I in pursuit of ouc. But I looked at him tho hardest, and he left another ink-spot ou his forehead, from a sympathetic motion of his left hand to quicken my apprehension of his meaning. ' Why, yes,' he continued, in a tone of forced confidence, as if pressing an idea, which, though having peen current a hun dred years, might still be counterfeit, for aught he could show on the spot, ' we print thoughts, to be sure.'

Ezekiel seemed lo grow an inch at ev ery word, aud the brawny prcsmnn looked liot at him and then at mo with evident satisfaction. ' Talk about tho mind's living forever!' exclaimed tho boy, pointing patronizingly at the ground, as if minds were lying there incapable of immortality until the printer reached them a helping hand. Why, the world is brimful of life, bright, Industrious i thoughts, which would have been dead as stone if it hadn't been for boys like me, who mil the ink rollers. Immortality, In deed !

The lutter took it as if dubbed a knight of the legion of liouor; for tho boy had put tho mysteries of his professiou in an apoca lypse. ' Give us one good healthy mind," resum ed Ezekiel, " to think for us, and we will furnish a dozen worlds such as this with thoughts to order. Give us such a man, and we will insure his lifo; we will keep him olive forever among the living. Ho can't die, no way you can fix it, when once we have touched him with these bits of inky pewter.

'Ezekiel,' I asked, in a subdued tono of reverence, ' will you print my thoughts ton?' ' Yes, that I will," he replied, " if you will th'nk some of the right kind." And I went homo and thought, and Ezekiel has printed my ' thought trucks' ever since. Tuklaif Ibis l'.Bsu. Our Marshals aro already busy looking up the census.
