Ob8ta3l"8 in the way of the develop
ment of the Tellurium ledjre have been
many and various. An attempt was first
made tt sink a shaft upon it, and thereby
to extract ore as the work progressed; but
at the depth of about filty feet the plan had
to be abandoned on account of water. The
- only alternative was to commence at the
foot of tiie slope and drive a tunnel into
"the mountain which would carry off the
water, and at the same time, serve as a
means of readily ruaninjr ore to the mill as
well as tapping the ledge at a greater
The portion of the tunnel now completed
measures 297 feet, and will have to be ex
tended about 400 feel.
Until within a few . weeks past, it has
been cut through rock of exceeding lard
..nees, nderinjr its progress exceedingly
'slow. For many weeks, three; feet per
week was a fair average, though at times,
it was only hi If that distance.
Surface croppings and a knowledge of
the surroundings confirm our belief that
the hard rock has been asoed, and that in
future, as it has been for several weeks,
nbt rate of advance will far exceed that oi
the pas . For several weeks there Lao
been an average run of ten feet per week,
and the highest run yet made was that of
last week, it being idneteen feet.
W e have every reason tojiape. thai er
many weeks the remaining one hundred
feet will, be complete! and the goal reach"
ed. . ' . ..
The ledge will be tapped at a depth ol
250 feet, and the highest point of the ledge
is 1200 above the level of the tunnel. ,
Several feeders have been crossed, rang
log in thickness from a few inches to six
feet, and in ricliniss front five dollars per
ton an I upward. One or two of these will
pay well. .,
There is no thought on the part of those
. engaged in the enterprise, to abandon the
. work. Preparations are being made to
comiuae till the work shall be accom
plished whether the time be short or long.
""Friday the citizens of Umpqua Ferry and
vicinity gathered at the residence of Mr,
Woodcock, for the purpose of having an
old fashioned rail hauling, which passed off
necely and was turned into a dance in the
evening, which passed off very pleasantly
to all except one gentleman, who. while
at the table eating thought his shirt was
not in he right, plaee and proceeded to ar
range it. When through at supper he
got up and started for the ball room when
the dishes and grab come after him as by
attraction. He was immediately surroun
ded by a lot of the young gents, who wished
to inquire into the cause of him palling
-everything off the table. He then could
not explain the mystery, but when they
were putting back the cloth on the table
the fo ind out that he had poked one cor
ner into his pants.

in the Pla'mdealer of lest Saturday com

in regard to extending Washington street,
that is wide of the mark. Messrs. Fink,
Conn and Grisdale were appointed a com.

case; Inquire into the wants, wishes and
necessities, and the propriety of opening
this street. Fink and Grisdale report. d

ing . In the Council the proposition wa
voted down Conn, Eiaynes and Langen
berg voting against and Fink and Grisdale
voting : for the proposition. Fink th-
prime mover in th- matter, has a spiti
agaiuSl Mr. Abrahams, and thought this
an opportumi y to injure brahams at the
expense of the uty; in this he was baffled
by Conn, Hoynes and Lxngeuberg. , Fink
has been lawing Abraham over a toll
road and having leen beattn now wan;?
his spite foMered br destroying Alrr.ham's
grounds at city expense. Let Fink meet
Abraham at hip own expense, and stop en
deavoring to luake the people carry his
burdens. The extending of the street
would benefit no one but Fink. Let the
citizens of Koseburg rememlwr the noble
action of Conn, . Haynes and Langenberg
and endorse their true munhoo.l. Let it
be remembere-1 that every vote these
men have cast has been on the side of the
taxpayer. They have been faithful guardU
ans ot the city welfare. Let tbtrn again
be honored by the taxpayers next Mon
day. Let Fink be taught that the people
have some rights he is bound to respect.
Coos County Statistps.
The committee appointed by a meeting
of the citizens of Coos Bay and vicinity to
compile statistics of the commerce and res
sources of Coos Bay, have made their re
port. This baa been published agd circus
lated extensively. It contains much valu
aula Information concerning the coast
county, and the statistical matter compiled
is correct and reliable. The committee has
performed the duty asrigned in an excellent
manner. A similar report on Douglas
county would further aid in obtaining
the Coos Bay road. The report says:
"Roseburg is not only the most central,
and largest town in Umpqua vallev, but
is also the present terminus of the the O. &
C. R. R. From that point the surplus pro.
ducts of Southern Oregon are shipped by
railroad to Portland, a distar.ee of 200
miles, and thence by river and ocean to
San Francisco. The distance between
the navagable waters and Roseburg, taps
ping the Coquille valley, by a route per
fectly practicable for a railroad, is 80 miles.
The opening of this route would place
the people of Southern Oregon and Umps
qua generally, within onesbalf their press
ent dist .nee from Sen Francisco. The dis
tance from Roreburg to San Francisco, by
way of Portland (the rout by which ail
exp ins and imports from that region are
shipped) is abou 875 miles; while from the
sam-point, by way of C-oos Bay, the dis
tance is 45o miles.
Lecture o.i the ISortu West CoasL
The Rev. P. S. Kn ght, of Salem, has
prepared a lecture on he future North

illu -tnte the many interesting points in
the lecture. Mr. Knight has had drawn and
painted on c nvaes a large map ol the
United States, dividing it into five divis
ions, a vina the r ncipal cities and differ
ent routes of travel irom Boston to Oregon
in the last tor y years. The lecture has
been prepared after many months of hard
iabor, gathering statist c. and will cons
tain valua e suggestions regarding the
vexed qu s i n of GoaucrH aud labor, also
railroads, a ui b heard by all those wbo
have' the interest of Oregon at heart, as
Mr. Knight proposes to lecture in the
eastern Mates if he meets witn proper
encourigement from the people of Oregon,
and if presented to the people of , Hie east,
will have the effect of adding greatly to
our population and wealtn. Mr. Knight
if a careful and cons ientious student, and
everything he saj about the Northwest
coast will be supported by testimony and
facts. He is an easy and pleasant speaker
and will receive attention wherever he
may lecture. Would i. not be a good idea
for the President ot the Philalathian Lit
