Manzanita yesterday. He reports
stormy weather at tho rock. Thf
mouth of November was remarkable
Nine, bul with December came terrible
weather from tho south east, culminat
ing in a severity unequoaled in his four
years experience. On the 16th the sea
rose lit solid manses of. water carrying
away the heavy water Unkx rituaterl
90 feet above the sea. Later on it
grew still rougher, and a wall of water
broke against the rock and ro.se far
above striking the light, which is 143
feet in height, and fulling solidly on
the roof. Tons of water flew up in tho
air and fell with a crash as of a hum
dred hammers again and again on the
roof of the lighthouse. It cracked, the
joist crushing in admitting the wa'er.
The light trembled and the stout iron
stanchions bent with the force of the
blows. ' For about a quarter of an
hour it looked mighty scaly. Every,
thing was afloat, tables, chairs, etc.,
swimming about, tho water thundering
on the roof and pouring in torrents
through tho rents its weight hud made,
and it seemed as though the end of all
things had come, as fur as Tilamook
rock light was concerned, when, sud
denly, nt tho very height of the fury of
the storm, the force of tho waves
ibated, greatly to the relief of tho
keeprtf and hii assistants, who essayed
to repair the damages. The next day
the surface of the ocean was as calm
and smiling as the placid bosom of a
sunlit lake. ,

Owing to the unusual mill) weather
prevailing at this season throughout
the Facilio slope, and the ajtsence of
frost ,and snow, in tho Shasta valley
and adjoining country, the extension of
work on the portion of the Oregon it
California railroad line now under con
stiuction is progressing with a speed
and with a vigor that is very little in.
lorrupted by winter condition1., The
track laying is finished to EJson, 17
miles southwest of Yreka, and the
grading is being pushed forward on the
portions of tho new lino where it is
free from "adolie" soil, A force of
several hundred Chinese graders are
at work on the cuttings within throe
miles south of the upper ferry of the
Klamath river, and blasting of rock is
continuous in that vicinity. The build
ing of the bridge across the Klamath
is not vet commenced, but Mr. Scoble,
the contractor for tho stone mason
work, is engaged in the preparation of
tho necessary material. The river is
somewhat narrow at this portion of its
course, and, although , the current is
impetuous, tho structure will not be of
very large size and consequently a com
paratively short period will sullico for
its construction. This bridge will be
the only one of any considerable size
in all the G7 miles of tho track yet to
be laid, but trestle works will necessar
ily be numerous along the greater part
of this distance especially from the
east end of the Shasta valley to Ash
land, about 40 miles, as this portion of
the route is very hilly and broken up
by water-courses and gulches, At last
accounts the, boring of. the tunnel
through the Siskiyou range was tempor
arily suspended, but this gigantic work
will be finished by the, time that the
grading reaches itf and no delay will be
caused by this part of the construction.
All work on this line, from its south
ern terminus to the temporary termin
us at Edsou, is of the most substantial
kind, and it is a noteworthy fact that
tho iiiannn work employed is more
abundant on this line than any other
in the United States, while tho ap
pearance of durability is cf the n;ost
substantial kind. Every culvert has
either s'.one facings or stone arches,
and all bridges have either sjone piers
or stone foundations,' according to the
needs of the structures. k
The portion of the line above Delta
is only recently' constructed, and the
embankments and slopes of the cut
tings being new and not yet solidly set
tied, are still subject to land slides in
wot weather, but one or two seasons
will entirely remedy this unavoidable
defect, and render those slopes and
and banks permanently fixed. Through
tho upper portion of the Sacramento
river canyon, where the track is laid,
the lied' is of solid rock and the sides
are chiefly of the same adamantine
material. Consequently the portions
of the line subject to land slides are
limited in number and are also re-J
Htrictod in area. During the present
Winter there has been no frost to speak
of in the Sacramento canyon, but the
weather has been unusually wet, and
consequently land slides of small nz
have been numerous, necessitating vex.
atious delays. in the trains and involv
ing' stoppages' over niht on the upper
part of the line. These stoppages have
caused the irregularities in communi
cation since the middle of Decern I er,
but the present season will probably
end all causes of this nature. As the
track leaves Sacramento canyon it as
cends steep grade and crosses several
very high and long trestles to Mc
Clond, which station is yei the point
at which heovy freight is delivered and
taken further by teams. ( Tussengers
go fourteen miles further to Lutteyille,
and the construction train goes with
supplies another ten miles to Elson
this latter portion of the line not hav
ing yet been alt-opted by the govern
ment. It is estimated, by those best
informed, that tho whole extension
through to Ashland will bo finished by
the 1st of July next, and when it is
considered that this line has leen made
through the mountains at a average
cohI of about 880,000 per niile.the mag-
