Sir. S. W. Tallman, of this county,
in company with Indian Dick,recently
made an exploration of that pari of the
Xehalem country lying contiguously
with Westport and Knappa, and he
informs us with respect to his obser
vations, writing as follews:
"I have just returned after an ex
amination of the country along the
summit at the head of West's creek and
Gnat creek. That place is three miles
south of the "base line running east
and west from there to the crossing of
Gnat creek, where the township line
crosses (three miles) between ranges G
and 7 "w. 8 , near comer of sections
13 and 24 on said line; thence north
erly to Ross' logging camp (sec. 15,
7 w. t. S x.) three miles, thence two
miles east to the prairie and down the
Fisl iawk, making by fourteen mika
to the Kehalem river.
From the summit at the head of
West's creek to Gnat creek, the coun
try (six miles long by three miles
wide) is a smooth region, with the
finest fir timber in the world, well
watered, and a good wagon road can
be made the whole distance. From
the summit at Fish-hawk to Astoria,
and from Gnat creek to Wests, is the
prettiest country I ever saw.
From the prairie (Knappa) easterry
to Ross' camp (two miles); thence two
miles east and one mile south to the
crossing of Gnat creek; thence east
three miles and south two miles, to
the south side of Sec. 34, t. 8, . n.
G w., thence bear south on the divide
to the Fish-hawk, and from there down
said stream to the Nehalem.

The English railroad companies
took years to discover that it is the
third-class passengers who pay.
At the outset of railroads, everything
was done to win the custom of the
first, and no change has been so great
in the management of English rail
roads as that which has taken place
in the policy and behavior of railroad
companies toward the third-class
passengers. In 1870 the receipts from
the third class were 1S( to every

over the bark Emerald, now loading

of the quartermaster's department at

came here a lieutenant in the fourth
infantry in 1852, and married the
daughter of Gov. Abemethy. He
takes the same interest in the develop
ment of the state as of old. All who
knew him in the olden time are glad
to meet him and wish him abundant
prosperity. He is here only on a brief
visit with his excellent wife, and will
return east by the Elder. Gov. Curry
informs us that time deals kindly
with the Colonel, and that he is tho
same good fellow without the least ap
parent change, as of other days.
D. C. Ireland, mayor of Astoria,
offers a reward of $20 for evidence
that will convict any one in that mun
icipality of giving or selling liquors of
any kind to minors. A vigorous ap
plication of the law in this respect
would be potential in abating this
great evil. Xo use to clamor for tem
perance legislation when the plainest
statutes already enacted upon the sub
ject are openly and flagrantly violated
and that not infrequently, with impu
nity. Selling or furnishing liquor to
Indians, minors, and habitual drunk
ards, keeping saloons open on Sunday,
gambling in all its forms, keeping of
brothels, these, at least, there are
stringent laws against, and, while they
remain inoperative for want of moral
strength to enforce- them, it is worse
than useless to encumber the statutes
with, others that look to the supprt s
sion of vice. New Northwest.
