Thb Northern Pacific Railroad. The
Senators and Representatives from the Pa
cific States nud Territories, as also those
from Minnesota, hare written an appeal to
Congress, in favor of the passage of the
Northern Pacific Railroad Bill. The appeal
sets forth the necessities for the passago of
the bill and the construction of the road
in figures and argument, which no doubt
will have the desired effect in aiding its con
struction. In referring to tbe resources of
the country, the report says :
Tbe single Express line of Wells, Fargo ft
Co. has transported from tbe Columbia river
to San Francisco, coming from our North
western mines during two years, twelve mil
lions of dollars in gold and silver. While the
population of Montana, which', as a Territory,
has hardly found a place on the map of tbe
country, is not officially known, tbe returns
of internal revenue for tbe past year sbow
that it pity the largest tax of any of our
national. Territories, nod an estimate of two
millions of treasure per month will no doubt
be short of the' actual amount which she
Benils forth, to (quicken tbe commercial pulse
of the noxioo.
From statistics furnished by the Treasury
Department it is estimated that Montana,
Idnho, Oregon, and Washington Territory
have yielded $39,000,000 during the paBt
Steamers now .run to Fort Benton, oa lhe
Muiouri ; from Fort Benton to the nearest
point navigated by steam on Clark's Fork of
the Columbia, via Helena., is about three
hundred miles. On Clark's Fork and Pen
d'Oreillo lake, there is perfect navigation for
one hundred and ten miles. A railway of
fifty miles to Wbite Bluffs, on tbe main Co
lumbia, lands us upon the regular line of tbe
Oregon Steam Navigation Company, and tran
sit by steam to the sea, six. hundred railec, is
continuous. Thus a few hundred miles of
road on this line would place the two sborej
of the continent in direct steam communica
tion with each other. It is true tbe neviga
tion or these waters is often interrupted, and
during winter, especially on the Missouri,
suspended: yet their importance in supplying
tbe country and aiding in tbe rapid building
of tbe road itself, cannot be well overstated.
The argument which we wish to press upon
-your attention is, that it will bring the two
oceans together in tbe briefest time; and de
velop a vast region along our northern fron
tier of incalculable value and wealth, which
without it will lie dormant and worthless for
years . to come. It enters into competition
with no otherroute projected. Ita nearest
approach to tbe great Central route will not
be less than six hundred miles, while its west
ern terminus Is nearly one thousand miles
from tbe bay of San Francisco.
Validity of Legal Instiiuments Unstamped
la a case before the Supreme Judicial Court,
in Taunton, Massachusetts, lately, the ques
tion of the validity of a deed, to which no
Revenue stamp was affixed, was raised,
Judge Hoar unhesitatingly decided that the
absence of the stamp does not Invalidate the
" deed. He questioned whether Congress so
. Intended in framing tbe Revenue law but
was clear In the opinion that a statute of the
United States, undertaking to Invalidate an
instrument, which, by tbe laws of a State, Is
valid, would be unconstitutional. Tbe Gov
ernment may exact a penalty for failure" to
affix a stamp, bot cannot make void tbe in
strument for lack of tbe stamp. TbatMassa.
chuseits Judge is evidently a stickler for
. Never Had ah OrricK. Lately, just after
an adjournment of tbe House of Represents
tivos, of tbe Iowa Legislature, a young la.l
who was 11 running for office," approached
Mr. Brown, of Winnusbeik.and laid bis case
before him in tbe following .pertinent and
convinoincr style : " Mr. Brown, I am. a can
dldate for Messenger.. Her is one of my

lad, witb a. determination of 11 patting him.
