A Grand Success.
The first concert given in this city
by the Handel and Haydn society was
given lust evening at Metropolitan
hall. The hall was evenly filled; the
audience delighted; and the concert
one which ni
characterized a grand suece&s. A gen
tleman well versed in music, and a
good musician himself by the way, on
a visit here front San Francisco, re
marked to us at the chG of cencert:
''Well, Ireland, I have lived in large
cities, and I have traveled some! but
n man can ever make me believe
hereafter that the big cities contain all
the smart men and women. That
concert was as good as the same music
which I have heard elsewhere, and far
better than a great deal of what 1 have
heard that was considered hiyh." We
really hope the concert may be re

layed the work, and now complain
of the weather, because they have
no crops in. We opine the aver
age crops be as large this year as
ever, notwithstanding the back
wardness of spring. In May,
So, the spring was about as
backward, there being only three
or four pleasant days in the month;
but people seem to have forgotten
it. The old settler tell us, how
ever, that in 18-io it rained all sum
mer and harvest was omitted that
year. It may be a little repetition
of history, but we are inclined to
believe that so little fanning was
done at that early day that
harvesting was unknown. "We
have never known crops for
the past twenty-eight years,
whether the season was wet or
dry, to fail if they were put in
the ground at the proper season.
The seasons are so different from
other states and countries that they
seem destined at times to ruin
everything, but in the end the
result is not very damaging, and
we look for little damage now.

Speaking of the proposed es
tablishment of a military post at
Lake Chelan, the Walla alia
Union says the advocates of it know
but little concerning the difficul
ties to be surmounted in getting
there, even on horseback, but
much les the provisions of an
army. Priest rapids is at the head
of steam navigation, (it must be
remembered that lake Chelan is
on the west side of the Columbia
river). There is no trail on that
side that even an Indian can travel
over during high water. The
"Wenatchie, a large and turbulent
river, has to be crossed near its
junction with the Columbia.
There is not a bushel of oats to be
bad in the Chelan country, and
how the soldiers and hordes are to
be subsisted is a conundrum.
Years ago, when the Similkameen
mines were discovered, two cross
ings of the Columbia were made
in going thither; the first one at
"White bluffs and the other near the
mouth of the Okanagan. This
route, we believe, was established
by Gov. Palmer, over which goods
were carted with oxen to supply
the miners in Similkameen. The
traders, Indians and whites, all
cross the river above the Yen
atchie and travel down the east
side of the Columbia river to reach
AYallula. Lake Chelan is in the
mountains, and is walled in on
both sides with perpendicular
walls of basalt rock, and from the
description we have had of it, the
mountains come close to the Co
lumbia on that side, and are cover
ed with timber, while on the east
side there is little or no timber.
There is no travel along the Co
lumbia from Priest rapids to lake
Chelan. There are trails leadinir
from Ivitlitass sixteen or eighteen
miles west from the river to
the mouth of the Wenntehie; at
this point the timber sets in, and
hicrh precipitous mountains come
close to the riwr. There are
mines on the tributaries of th
Wenatchie, but the underbrush
and timber is so thick that it is
with diHiculty that supplies can be
packed over the trails that lead up
the river to the mines. The most
of the packing is 1one from the
Yakima side of the mountains.
'There is a good trail leading up
