Tub Mint Again. liecont udvioos
from Washington lead to the belief
tlialt , ht U. ft Branch Mint will yet
lie built at the Dallas. Tbo original
hilt locating it at this point, and roak
ing appropriation for its erection has
not met with any successful opposi
tion, and the difficulty of procuring
fresh legislation upon matters of this
nature, encourage the belief that tho
law will stand s first passed, nnd thut
the Branch Mint will bo built hero.
Before, when this question was agin
titted, the citizons of the D:tl!cs doedod
to tbo Govern motvt a plat of ground
on which to erect the necessary build1
iogs. Letters havo been received,
nuking that a survey of it be made,
and the title to it be properly proved
up. This, we believe, has boon. done.
We have always contended that tbo
Dalles was the most available point
for a mint it ono was to be established
norlb of Sun Francisco; because, to
locate it at Portland would be to take
it an unnecessary distance from the
mines, and to pfoco it at Idaho- would
pjaco it out of the way of the Casyon
City and upriver gold yielding rot
gions; moreover,, we believe that we
lave every reason to anticipate fresh
and rich tiiscovories throughout the
whole circle of country to which- the
Dulles is the natural centre. If there
is any action which our citizens can
take at the present status of the ques
tion, let it be dono at once. A grain
may turn, tho scale in our favor, and
cur local prosperity bo made certain.
Oca Cowntv Hospital. Among
other matters to which tho attention
of our Grand Jury was culled at their
lute silling, was ibe condition o our
County Hospital, and ia view of the
average number ot unfortunates being
treated at tho publio oxponso, they re
commonded that a more suitable- and
commodious building bo ronted for
hospital purposes. What action our
County Commissioners will see fit to
tako in this' mailer, of course we can
not foretell ;. but wo are of tho opinion
that Wusco county is entitled to some
consideration from tbo State at largo
in tho way ot helping her to boar ibis
burthen. Wo nro bo situated thut wo
catch onclmlf of the wbolo travel into
nnd from tho State every fall the
emigration and returning miners, and
every spring tho roineward bound
rash Icavo at our gates eomo persons
in a destitute and helpless condition
Humanity forbids that theso persons
rhould bo butSured to die or want be
cause they do not bolong in our midst,
and yet tho drain upon our fow tax
payers is certainly much more than
their just proportion for. these pur
poses. We would respoctfully.com
mend this subject to tho consideration
of our next Legislature, and if there
be no legal obstacle, suggest tho jus
ticok of a relief hill to meet tho ex
igeifcjY and coMinuo, without loo
great a tax upon ono county, lliechaj'

THIS PEN tTOKEILIjU ROUTE.
Through the ki ndness of M r. Abrums
of the firm ot ' Abrams & Houac,
we are enabled to lay before oui rend
ers a dsscription of this routo, com
mencing at a point on tbo river, twoii-
ty-fivo miles below the lake, and
thonco up the luke and river to the
flat Head and Bitter lioot Kivers;
nd Ihonce. up the Flat Head to the
mouth- ot the Jocko, a distance alto
gether of over two hundred miles.
Mr. . Abrams arrived at the ferry,
twenty five miles Uolow tbo Lake, on
the 12th of March, where ho was de
tained until the 20th, waiting for a
suitable boat to be built for tho trip
p the river. Arrived at the Cabinet,
distance of oightyitive roi I ok, over a
route of unsurpassed beauty, free from
all obstructions. Hero the river is
forced through a channel of about 150
feet in width, with pcndicular rock on
either side 100 feet or more in height,
for a distance of one hundred yards,
which presents n barrier to steamboat
avigalion during high water, but at
tho present low stage found no diffi.
culty in making tho passage with oars
alone.' From this point at a distance
of six miles, a rapid or fall is met
milar to the Cascades of the Colum-
ia. At tuis point a portage will
bo necosavy ot not over two hundre I
ards, after which, for a distance of
thirteen miles, thero is no obstruction
in any stago of water. At this point
rapid is met, with four or fivo largo
boulders, which, after a caroful exam-
nation, it is evident thut by removing
them, this rapid will be easily nuvigat'
ecL From this point tho river com
pares favorably will) any stream east
of tho Cascade mountains for steami
boat navigation, for a distance of forty
fiwo miles, when we come to tho Fulls
of Thompson's Frairie, and tho upper
end of tho boat route. Here a portage
of loss than threo-fourths of a mile
over an easy grade, without timber,
Then tho party' cam to a river,
though' rapid, susceptible ef steam
boat navigation for a distance of 75 or
eighty miles, to tho mouth of tbo
Jocko river, through a country, a large
portion of which is well adapted to
cultivation and stock raising.
Mr. A. reports having met Messrs.
McFurlond, JSudio, JSSarlicv and others,
on their way to the mines, fiJty fivo
miles this side of Thompson's Prairie;
He nleo mot Mr. Saipos with bis team
and cattle, on ibe Spokano Pruirie,
who reported having a good trip bo
far. He had ten head of cattle run
off by the Indians, between White
Bluffs and tbo Spokano river. Mr.
