OtT Tlio elegant steamboat, Lot Whit-
'comb, paid our city a visit on Monday
last, remaining at our wharf until Tuts
day morning, whon she left for Astoria
with quito a number of psucogers from
this place. - Many ofour citizens greeted
l,or uP9n ""islng at our wharf, it being
ll0r l''t W.it to this city, and also the first
steamboat that has mado Its appearance
this high up tho Willamette (if wo except
tho lloosicr.) A now-era in navigation
is about to dawn upon this portion of Ore-
gon, ui. ' wo comuentiy nope uiai 11 win

We liavo arrived at that period of pro-
grcsslhat requires that the business shall
, be donn in tho way wu havo mentioned.
f tl0 proprietors of tho Lot Whilcomb
expect to mako tho running of tho boat
profitable, they must doit upon a moro
'enlarged and lilieral policy than thoy have
previously done. It is utter folly for any
man or any set of men to think that our
ciliens will so much disregard their own
' interests as to st-rifico them lo thosothst
may exist out ol lioriolf; or in other
' ords, iftlioy do not accommodate them
Mihca to the requirements of tho countnr,
'our citi7cns will take tlio matter In hand
tficmsvl ,'cs, and run their own freight and
passengers tn and from this city.
Tho Lot Whitcomb, wo understand,
went down over tho rapids without throw
ing off stenm, and was managed with
case, nothing occurring to create the
st r... ttl l sflt
very strong current nt tho raplds. The
Clackamas river has hcen very high br
a week and moro ; which, it ia said, has
had tho effect to greatly increase the our.
rent of Iho Wlllamottp, at the head of the
rapids. But tho current has been some.
vlial lessened by tlio back water from, the
Columbia river; tho annual rise of thai
river having already begun.
Tho lato rains during last week caused
a small rise In tho Willamatto; and the
depO' of water on'tho rapids, is reckoned
to bo about 12 feet in tho shallowest places,
