withdraw tlic name of James K. Kelly,
Kq., for I'ougresi. lie confesses that the
Copperheads und Secessionists, combined
tinder the name of "Democracy" nro too
weak to elect any man nominated by them,
ind urges T'Vuult not to "cnuw hit

name rur nomination." The writer pro
poses, that the "radical" peace Democracy
rhull nuke no nomination, "but nrgo in all
Ihetralegy you Fl" Vault arc cajdiblo of
to bring about a dissension In the Union
Convention, nnd induce bolters there

Mr. Editor.- In my hut, I promised
yourself and readers n brief statement in
regard to tho condition nnd claims of the
"Ilogue ltlvcr Wngnn Road."
A sufficient number of good roads to
open up nny section of country to market
nnd tmvcl, nro of llic first Importance.
It Is over time tli.it tlic products of the
farmer, the fabrics of the mechanic, nnd
the pood of the merchant find their wny
to the consumer. Nearness of locality
doe not nlivnys dctcrmlnn the point of
supply, or ccn of trade, its if Instanced in
the situation of this valley with reference
to the mnt western nnd southern portion
of that extensive frotil fiold, known ns the
Northern mines. Persons from this valley
nnd from California, wishing to go to the
Powder Hirer nnd John Day mines, mu
ally traversed the roundabout road to
rortland, thence by tho Colnmbln Hirer
rot, and thence overland south again, tin
til they hnvo nearly closed nil sides but
ono of nn cxtcnslre parallelogram. This
vnlley.cmlncntly stttiatct) for nn otit-flltiny
and cheap supply point, is entirely Ignored
nnd why? Are there Impassable bar
riers lying between iw and these mines?
'llic explorations of this summer hnvoconi
plctily and trlnmphnntly demonstrntcd
tlmt there nrc no such barriers. Yen,
, morel There explorations hate developed
the fact that nature has located nn rnsv
highway for wagons, horsemen nnd pedes
trians, nnd marked It out with distinguish
Ing land mnrks, supplied it with nnnbnnd
nncc of rich paiturogp, nnd ornamented It
with cnrlosltles nnd wonders nn accurate
description of which wnuld create n sensa
tion in the reading world. All that is
needed Is for n little 'number six' enterprise
to clear nwny tho brash, cut away tho tim
ber nnd logs, nod muke, now nnd then,
light grades for n short distance on some
or the side hllli. Is there not enough en
ergy, enterprise and public spirit In the
people of this valley to complete this road!
I think there is, If. tho advantages nnd sti
per lor claims of this ronto could Im fairly
presented to them. It is n standing eolum
nlntion npon onr pnblio spirit, that n clll
zen of this valley should be compelled to
go to Portland to get to the John Day
mines. Ho gets his out-fit nt the Dalles,
where flour Is from six to eight dnllurs per
hundred, and Is then nn nearer tho mines
than nt this point, where floor Is only two
dollars and .thirty cents; besides all the
loss of time ond money In tbe trip to
Portland. Mnrk you, we havo no objec
tions to the citizens of Portland, but be
llcvo they deserve nil tbe benefits resulting
from their situation nnd superior vnler
prise. Dut while this is trne, why should
we not make one general, united effort to
open up our beautiful and productlrc vol
ley to travel nnd to market ?
On our recent trip In the mountains, we
pawed over this new road to the western
base of Flounce Rock. 'Hie distance from
Jacksonville to the latter point Is nbont
forty-five miles. A better road for this
same distance I never passed over in Ore
gon. The grade Is easy, the ground hard
and solid. There nro no steep pitches, no
sideling places, no miry holes. Desldes,
the road Is direct and straight forward, not
winding and torturous. The traveler has
none of tlmt exquisite plensura nrlilng
from traveling all day, and at night camp
ing on the side, of a hill.nnd heaving stones
over to the place from whence ho started In
This road, I am well convinced, Is from
fifteen to twenty mllea nearer Klamath
Fort than the present military road, and is
Incomparably better. It Is a pity that
this matter could not have been attended
to In time to hnve secured the co-operation
of the military, In the opening up of one
grand trunk rond to tbe great Klamath
I am Informed that the Rogue River
Vogon Road is completed beyond tho di
viding ridge. It has been put through,
thus far, by the commendablo energy of
but comparatively few of our citizens.
