Considerable quantities of tho coal
havo been set to that city, where It
sells readily. A wagon road is being
constructed thenco to tho mine, it, or
der to supply tho demand. At tho
depth of sixty-fivo feet tho scan, is
about five feet thick, and tho quality
of the coal better than nt tho surface.
Good coal has been found near the
Premier Mills, on Hear creek, n tribu
tary of tho Ynquina river, in llenton
county, about thirty miles from Cor
vallls. Fivo separato seams of coal
have been found in this locality, vary
ing from nix inches to four feet in
thickness. The most valuable scam is
within fivo miles of Yaqtiina Hay.
This is nbout four thick, and nearly
horizontal in position. It has becu
prospected over .1 considerable extent
of the adjoining county. It Is estimat
ed that coal In this vicinity can bo de
livered nt frl 00 per ton, owing to nat
ural facilities for working and trans
portation. Most of tho mines aro not
more than fivo miles from navigable
waters, and that distauco over an al
most level plain. A railroad could bo
cheaply constructed to tho placo of
Towards tho closo of 1800 n scam of
coal was discovered 01, tho bank of Til
lamook Day, lifly miles south of Asto
ria and sixty miles northwest from Sa
lem. There is another coal scam of n sim
ilar character on tho shore of Ncha
lem, nbout twenty-fivo miles further
up tho river.
Extensive beds of coal aro in prog
ress ol exploration' nbout three miles
from Farewell Itcnd, ou tho Snnko
river. A tunnel has been run on n
vertical seam about threo hundred feet,
wnoro a uumlicr ot smaller seaum tun'
tied and form n body of coal about
leu feet thick. Tho mouth of tho tun
nel is closo to tho bank of tho river.
Another seam ol coal discovered, twA
hundred feet nbovo tho original discov
ery, is said to contain good coal, and
lo bo five feet thick.
Coal has been found in tho Calapoo
ia mountains, within n few miles of
Ilarrv's survey for a railroad from tho
Columbia river to California. This
discovery is considered of importance
lu that part of Oregon.
There is a coal field on both sides of
Coqiilllo river, in Coos county. Tho
Coos Hay mines aro in llio northern
edgo of this Held, which extends Into
Curry county. Tlio seam, of which
there aro three, aro thicker and tho
coal of a better quality 011 tho Co

two larger seams of coal iinito on tho

thirteen feet thick. There Is another
field between tho South and Mlddlo
forks of tho Coquille, which is 1,000
feet higher in tho mountains thai, tho
last mentioned. It has Iscon traced
for twenty-two miles In length by eight

What is known ns Coos Ray coal
bears a good reputation in California.
It is found in a number of scams which
crop out on tho surfaco of tho rldgo
that divides Coos Ray on tho south
from tho Coqiilllo rivor. Tho locality
of tho best inino will bo understood
from a brief description of tho bay ;
CoosJJavis nbout fourteen miles in
lei)"th, varying from ono and n half to
two and a hair miles wine. 1 no mam
part of it has a direction northeast by
bouthwest. At tho upper end thoro Is
a bharp bond to tho north. Tho Coos
river rises somo thirty miles inland,
and enters the upper end of tho bend.
Four miles from tho mouth, in a dense
ly timbered and hilly country, is Marsh
field, tho centre of tho coal mining.
Tho facilities for working tho mines
uro crude. If tho arrangements woro
more complete tho biipply of coal could
ho increased. Tliero is a good enter
enco to tho bay, Tlio bar at its mouth
has fourteen feet of water at high tide,
and thoro is a govommout llght-houso

tcrenco ol tho bay, on tho soutli shore,
is Empire City, yie scat of Coos coun
ty -a thriving place.
Tho supply of Coob Ray coal nt San
Francisco has increased during tho
past threo years, as the following ta
bid will show. Tlio consumption has
increased in Oregon to an equal ex
tent: 1800, 600 tons; 1800, 2,1 20 tons;
1807, (first six months)'. 2",520 tons."

Will bo fow nml far between this ses

FlanderV bill for n railroad charter
from Vancouver to lhigct Sound was
reported to tho Houso by tho Commit
too on Railroads, ami its passage was
unanimously recommended by the
Committee. Tho charter only nsked
for a grant of land. Mr. Flanders
made a good speech in its behalf ; but
after a short discussion, it was referred
to tho Commltteo on Publlo Lands.
As it did not ask for subsidies, and
only lor a grant of land, it should
havo been referred to this commltteo
in tho first instance. It will sleep in

General Sherman testified before the
Committee 011 Railroads a few days
ago, that in all the interior Territories
wherever the United Stales troops had
to bo supplied to keep the Indian it,
subjection, tho Government could pay
two-third of tho cost of building tho
roads, and it would bo 11 money-saving
investment. Thoro nro plenty ol wild

railroad route between Jacksonville
and Humboldt. Tho Government
freight, alone, at tho cost of teams nml
pack mules, would moro than pay
twice the interest on tho bonds which
would take to build tho road,
Mr. Mallory's bill, chartering a com
pany to construct fliis road from Port
land, has been under consideration in
tho Commltteo nt, Itailroads several
times, nml it has been amended to suit
hiu returns, nml tho ideas of n largo
maiority of tho Commltteo; but owing
to tho unsettled condition of tho South,
and tho finances, it will probably not
bo reported to tho Houso before tho
commencement of tho next session of
tho present Congress, If tho Commit
too was to report it tho Houso would
not act 01, it until after tho settlement
of tho all-absorbing questions of im
peachment and reconstruction. If ev

bo consolidated, nud one road will bo
constructed from tho Willumtltu to
tho cast side of Klamath River. From
this point, ono can bo constructed to

and both will bo a paying investment.
Without Government nld orun amend
ment of tho Oregon constitution, tho
road will not reach Jacksonville in
twenty years. Wo hayo been twenty

It will probably tako twice as Jong to

gratian f'0lu Europo to scttlo up tho

will bo no disadvantage to tho rallroaeT,
becauso tho thicker tho country is set

Tlio great masses of tho peoplo want
a railroad, and it makes no dlffcrenco
with thorn whether It Is tho East or
West side of tho Willamette. Holh
shies need a road, and both sides in
time will io able to construct a road,.
There Is no. good senso lu their quarrel
ling nbout their name. Neither havo
compiled with tho terms of tho net (
Congress granting tho land. Neither
of them expect to comply with tho act
ol Congress, Tho act ot Congress
granting the land, requires then, to
complete twenty miles of tho road
within two years from the act. Neither
company can complete two miles, much
less twenty. Their only hope Is to get
Congress to extend tho time. Congress
don't care n cent nbout tho East or
Weslsldool tho Willlametto. All it
wants is ono good railroad. Tioy don't
caro who organized, or who bragn tho
most ; tho company that docs tho work
regardless of its iinnic, will gel tho
grant to tho laud, and perhaps subiidics
ot $10,000 per mile, with n second mort
gage to secure its payment, like tho
Central Pacific Kallioad. Thit Is
equivalent of giving the credit of tho
Government of $02,000 per mile, w hlch
ought to build the toad from ono end
of tho Willamette lo the other. Fitch
