these is W. W. Parish t ?o.'3 two-story

lively appearance, and miny place? are

were vacant one year ago. Ilirrisburg is
a lively, fliiiris-hiug towa. and improving

tilled with m tram "th stocks of goods, be

upon, and no d oiibt Ike road will be built
according to tae preliminary surveys of
the Union Pacific Company, which is most
deeply interested in it, and for reasons
quite apparent, set forth as follows :
1st. That company own the line no
further west tbua Salt Luke, or the eastern
bound ary of Nevada.
2d. The Central Pacific, which is being
built front the west, is in the hands of an
other oup.rny controlled principally in
San Franc. sco.
d. In a business point of view, a through
lute fCotn Sal; Lake to the Pacific tide
water, becomes a, matter of the utmost im
porrance to the Uivon Pacific company.

secure that, and that is through the Snake

as a source of profit, the Union company

The Gazette says it is a very easy matter,

difficult; to make it succeed. This seems
to be peculiarly true of Temperance and

YAqfiNA Bav A correspondent of the
O'.r'joman, writing from OysteryU'e. 1 a
quiua itay, begs the press to urge our
Senators and Kepresentatives to get a
mail route established over there. It Is
sixty -eight miles from the mouth of 1 a
quina Bay to Corvailis. by the usual route
traveled, and the whole distance is settled j
up. Much of the road passes through a
rich and populous country, yet there is
not a post-office, or a post-route between
tbe two points. " We need a mail route,
and must have it. We hare asked for it
and we intend to keep asking, and get
everybody else to ask. until we do get it.
We need it very much, and ice think we
deserve it. for settling and developing a
wild, new country, for supplying the rest
of mankind with the best of oysters, and
for carrying Benton county for the Union
ticket last summer, thus securing a Union
U. S. Senator lass fall.""
