Congress on tlio transportation ipii'--tioit

Wo cannot well exaggerate tlio
sturdv (iiidities of the rural popula

The penury, toil, a. id hardship at

' with the advantages enjoyed by men

things that ought to he remembered

and guided the governments, and
thoe" instances are 'rare indeed

of life have risen to the highest places

Should n canal or ship railway be

from this county to Umatilla landing,
