IIARROU OF KEFl'GE.
Considerable anxiety in manifested
by those interested in the construction
of a harbor of refuge on this coast, as
to where it will be located. The Hum
boldt papers are laboring in the interests
of Trinidad, and the Coos Bay papers
do ing what they can in favor of Cape
Gregcy. (or Arago), as the most favor
able sites, for the proposed improve
ment In our optH Crescent City,
with all its disadvantcsas a harbor,
'ik file mSitfifswrable location forttlu
harbor of refuge of any on the Pacific
Coast "We make the following extract
from a letter Written by A. W. Chase",
of the TJ. S. Coast Survey, in favor of
this place, and appearing in the San
Francisco "Bulletinj"J of September
A NORTHERN HARBOR OF REFUGE-WHERE
SHALL IT BE?
Something more than this is needed,
and should be pressed upon the atten
tion of Congress, by the combined mtf:
cantile interests of the coast and that
is a breakwater and harbor of refi'ge
north of San Francisco, at some point
equidistant or nearly so between the
metropolis and the ports of supply,
and where the natural advantages are
such that the expers 's of construction
can be kept within reasonable bounds.
Upon an examination of the charts
of the coast we find but three points
that appear to answer these requisitions:
Trinidad, lat 41 d"g. 03 min. long.
124 tleg. 08min. 08 sec. Crescent City,
in lat. 41 deg. 44 min. 34 sec, long.
124 deg. 11 min. 22 sea, and Port Or-
iord, in lat. 4 J ueg. 44 mm. I'o sec.
All of those points are N. W. Ices, or
summer harbors. To briefly sum up
the advantages and disadvantages of
each: Trinidad is a narrow and con
tracted anchorage, and although the
material fof building would be plenty
yet the depth of water is such between
the available points that the cost of
breakwater would be very great
Port Orford, Oregon, is the best sum
mer anchorage on the coast, the holding
ground being good and the harbor
large and affording plenty of sea room.
In this respRct it has decided advan
tages over the other places named.
Building material is also plenty, as the
rocky headlands would form inexausti
ble quarries, but still thdre would be
an obstacle of a serious nature. A
breakwater at Port Orford, starting
from Tichenr's rock, the N. W. bound
ary of the harbor, would have to be built
in very deep vater, commencing at 14
fathoms and ending at 32. Such a
work, to be of any service, would cost
an immense sum and exercise the ablest
engineering talent of the world to ren
der it secure.
"We have next to consider Crescent
City Bay or Roadstead, in our opinion,
the most feasible point. Its disadvan
tages may be slimmed up as follows:
The approaches are etJnsidered dange:
rous, on account of sunken rocks. 0
these, there are two in the direct chan
nel for entrance and departure. One
the Fauntleroy, awash, the other Middle
Rock, covered at all tides. A danger,
however, once indicated so that it can
be avoided, ceases to be one in reality.
Inside the rocks we find sufii-
Wnt- nnrnndntinn fnr little flppi
of vessels with three to four fathoms o
water and fair holding ground.
Four miles northwest of Crescent
City lines Point St. George", and stretch
ing out obliquely from it, the Dragon
Rocks or the Crescent City Reef. This
reef, on which the "Brother Jonathan"
was wrecked in 1865, Is the largest and
most dangerous on the coast, the out
side rock being seven and a half miles
from the nearest point of shore line.
Tho existence of thn great reef to the
northward compe) esscls bound up
the coast to make a long track to avoid
it, and forms another argument in favor
of Crescent City Bay as vessels bound
up in heavy north western, or running
before a gale in winter would seek the
protection of a breakwater, and wait
until tho storm had passed in prefer
ence" to weathering the ref. The rocks
lying off the Bay and those to the north
west of thd town are metaphoric sand
stone of exceedlugly hard quality and
well adapted for building purposes, as
the action of the sea would have little
erasive effect In July, 1807, an ex
amination in reference to a proposed
breakwater at Crescent City was made
by Lieut. Heur, acting under Lieut.
Col. Williamson, U. S. Engineer. The
son's report would start from Battery
Point, a rock ledgcon'tho if. "W. sidd
of the bay, and run in a S. S. E. di
rection a distance of 2,117 feet; thenco
in a direction slightly south of eaj
850 feet; thence in'a directionj'sligl
north of east 800 feet. It wouliK
quiro about 410,000 cubic yarl
material, and the estimated o
woq SS 1 TR finn inrnn7 I
The total length of this bj
would be 3,767 feet and til
ifcptd oi'-wic.tnr fn.ufa'J
structure woilld, however, interfJ
somewhat with the room, for anch-1
age inside. A more costly but bettl
plan would be lo Start irrjrn what
Known as xigut .Mouse lstanu and rl
from thenco to the rock called Stea
boat (54 feet high) a distance of 1,8C
feet, from thenco to the rock calhj
Round (45 feet high) a distance of
175 feet. Tatal length 5.034, feetj
The two rocks mentioned would scr
as great natural ancliors and gii
solidity to the, structure. Tho greatl
depth of woter on the lino would
five fathoms. When finished the Ligl
House might be removed to the end
Round Rock and indicate, tho entrail
to the harbor as well as allow the liprn
now hidden by intervening obstacles
be seen from the reef.
COMMKHCIAL IMPORTANCE OF CRESCE
Capt Chase has the following to saj
which is but u minimum to what ,
would be at the present time,
harbor were improved and tran.s
tion facilities provided so that 1
ports and exports of Southern
could be shipped via this place
The commercial importance t
selected for n general harbor i
should not have undue weiglj
it is of some consequence aJ
lation of many branches
ami the opening ot newl
wealth woiihjfollowi aj
ing natural advantages and sufficient
population to givo it a start.
These elements of eligibility Crescent
City possesses. Immediately back of
the town lies ono of tho most extensive
and finest bodies of timber on tho
coast composed of redwood and spruce-.
There are two mills in active operation
one cutting 25,000 and the other 40,
000 feet per day. Back of this timber
lielt lies the-rich valley of Smith's river
from whence, if proper facilities were"
to had for shipment, large quantities
of grain, potatoes and stock could bo
exportcdj twenty miles in the interior,
reached by a grided road; constructed
at a cost of 317,000, aro the rich cop
per mines of the Alta District. These
mines oncs worked extensively aro
now discontinued, owing to tho decline
in copper and the cost of mining tho
ore and freight to San Francisco.
Were, however, a good harbor provid
ed, and consequently freight lessened
these mines would again be worked.
In the vicinity of the copper mines ard
also deposits of a rare mineral chro
mato of iron. One of the.-,o deposits is
now worked by a Baltimore Company,
who shipped from Crescent City last
summer 1,000 tons of this ore. Therd
were also shipped from" Crescent City
in 1870, besides the ore mentioned,
four million feet of lumber and 500
tons of butter, salt S'llmonj potatoes,
- Uto - T4erO'W
ning) and as there is now another in
operation, the shipment of lumber will
probably be doubled this year.
During the summer of 1870, 30 sail
vessels, and 1C steamers arrived at
Crescent City, bringing n gross amount
of over 5,000 tons of freight, and many
passengers. The largest portion of
the freight thus brought into the town
was for transportation to the intenor,
for the supply of several mining and
agricultural towns, of which Jackson
ville is the principal.
It will thus be seen, that asido from
the natural advantages of the place, it)
has some commercial importance and
natural wealth, needing only a secure
harbor to develope.
