ASTORIA- OREGON :
FRIDAY JUSE 17, 1S81
On Tuesday afternoon 40,000;
cubic yards of rock, on the line of
the Oregon Railway and Naviga
tion company, between The Dalles
and Cascades, were removed at a
single blast. The Orea-onian savs:
A little after noon the great
blast in the Promotory at the up
per end of Shell rock, twelve
miles above the Cascades, was
fired. A part' including Chief
engineer TMcUun, Capt. Geoige
Ainsworth, Col. Gillespie and
several others, among whom were
a number of ladies, left Portland
in the morning to witness it.
Everything had been got in readi
ness, and when the steamers

visiting party while the other was
making the regular trip to The
Hnllds irrivorl nonr nni lilftw the
whistle, the mine was exploded.!
Chambers had been run into the
cliff from nearly opposite sides, I
and charged with 1-4,000 pounds
of powder. The cliff was of bal
salt, projecting into the river,
above which it stood at the height
of about 100 feet. The extent of
its base was about 200 feet, and
the lateral depth of rock which it
was desired to move was seventy-five
to eighty feet. The
wind was setting strongly up
stream, and as the spectators were
some distance below the promon
tory, the shook of the explosion
was to them scarcely perceptible.
But the sight was a splendid one.
There was a great flame, a great
rolling smoke, and the prodigious
mass of material was seen to rise
and shoot out into the river, some
of it being thrown perhaps half
way across. Hie boats steamed
up, and it as evident at once that
the shot had been entirely success
ful. Messrs. Thielsen and Hallett
found the result in the highest de
gree satisfactory. About -10,000
cubic yards of rock had been
blown off into the river, and the
work of constructing the railroad
at that point made comparatively
easy. Rapid progress is now be
ing made, all along the line, and
there is every reason to expect that

were quarantined, and ninety -eight

these, there were the general hos
pital and quarantine giottml at

The Pilgrim Templars from
New England recently met a
knightly reception at the National
Capital; Washington, Columbia
and Potomac commandcrics unit
itng with De Molay commandery
in honoring the visitors. Yc are
informed that the reception at the
Masonic Temple "was one of the
most brilliant gatherings that has
ever been given a
This may be accounted for by
casting the eye over the list of
persons present, among whom, so
far as our acquaintance extends, a
feeling of welcome, even to the
most distant stranger, would be
irrepressible. The Republican
says: "The inspiring music of
Donchs orchotra kept the dancing'
up to a late hour, and when the
party separated the remark of one
fair Bay State girl, said as she
wrapped tiround her curly hair the
fleecy thing which answered for a
. hoed: 'I have danced every set
and ever' round dance, and I
never had so good a time in ray
life,' was fully indorsed by all."
