Harbor of Refuge.
The locality spoken of by Mr. New
some m his letter to-day as the place
for harbor of refuge improvements, is
located one mile north of Cape Han
cock. It is endorsed by every one at
all conversant with its advantages.
Major Spurgeon informs us that the
canal would not be more than half a
mile, opening in deep water at sea, on
the outside, and deep water in Bakers
bay on the inside.
It appears that, tinners are responsi
ble for the destruction of Norte
Dame. The fire was caused from up
setting a tinner's furnace in use on the
roof. The Mishawaka Enterprise es
timates the loss at $200,000. The
statute of Virgin Mary, ten feet high
and weighing over a ton, fell from
the dome early in the day, and went
crashing through several floors. Hun
dreds of incidents might be given had
we space. Great crowds from South
Bend, Mishawaka and elsewhere,
visited the scene of the conflagration.

Fort Caxby. "W. T., May 29, 1879.
On visiting Major Spurgeon to
day, at his residence at Fort Can
by, he pointed out to me a natural
indentation in the high lands west
of the fort, which allbrds a most
eligible site for a ship canal. I
had never seen nor read of any
such site here, or any where on the
coast, so I passed over it, and thor
oughly examined it. The west
end lies between North Head and
McKinzie head. Each of these is
a high volcanic heave up, and the
base is basalt rock. Nearly all
the summit of McKinzie head is
prairie, and a most eligible site
for a light house and battery. The
North head is also a high volcanic
heave up and of solid rock, at the
base and for a hundred feet to
wards the top. On it is a fine site
for a battery. The distance that
these heads are apart at their base
is about 1,200 feet. The surface
is very low, but little above very
Inch tide. Proceeding eastward
the site for the ship canal broad
ens out, between the high lands,
which are covered with dense
hemlock trees, to some 1,500 feet.
It then retains nearly a uniform
width, along very low land, on
which is a lake of fresh water run
ning each way, to the ocean and
Bakers bay. " The site finally ter
minates at the west line of water
in bakers baw near the fort. The
whole distance from low tide to
low tide at each end, is not to ex
ceed one half mile. Vast quantites
of rock are at hand for use if need
ed. From the summit of Mc
Kinzie lnjad I could see distinctly
the bay line of the Columbia river
bar, and the north channel. Op
posit the west end of this natural
indentation, particularly at North
head, and for four miles north, is a
deep, smooth sea, no breakers.
Opposite, and south west of Ali
Kinzii head, is a narrow line of
at anchor a thousand ships. Large ITEI.

for fifteen miles, all along which is
safe navigation and good anchor
acre. If this ship canal were made,
there would be no bar nor break
ers to encounter. As far out as
sight can reach, beyond these two
heads, is smooth deep sea. A
breakwater for 1,000 feet might be
necessary along tne wesc oase oi
McKinzie head, but none would be
required northward. A natural
breakwater is already there for
four miles. Hero, then, is a chance
of letting ships in Baker's bay,
a natural harbor of refuge, and en
tirely avoiding the risks and pilot
age over the Columbia bar, and up
the danjrerous zigzag south chan
nel, or in the better north channel.
Tt is feared that dredging these
channels, so as to widen, straighten
and deepen them sufficiently, can
not be done to endure any long
time, as they would fill up with the
vast amount of drifting sand
around. As far as I could learn
here, this site for a ship canal, in
connection with Bakers bay, as a
harbor of refuge, and entirely
avoiding the entrance over the
Columbia river and up to Astoria,
has never been examined by scien
tific men. Why not, is hard to
tell. Less than one-half of the
cost of making a harbor of refuge
at Port Orford, and perhaps' not
much more than would be required
to make one at Cape Foulweather,
would make this ship canal, which
would endure for all time. Asto
ria, Portland, in fact about all
the vast country upon the Colum
bia river valley and its ailments,
are deeply interested in this meas
ure. Millions and millions of dol
lars worth of the products of the
I land and of the water, must pass
down and out of the Columbia
river to the world's markets.
The nations and peoples in
other lands, who may have
commerce with us, are inter
ested in this canal and har
bor of refuge. Why place
such harbor where there is no back
country to support it? There is
no such point along the coast of
Uregon or Washington territory
short of Puget sound, that in all
respects can equal this one. If
persons at home and abroad doubt
these statements of facts, as I see
them, they will please come here
and examine for themselves, and
see whether I have stated any
thing but truth in this matter. I
hope that our senators and repre
sentatives in congress will give
heed to these facts. No one has
employed me to make these state
ments: nor am I paid by any one
to write anything about matters on
the Columbia river, or down here.
