THE P.U'IHC NORTHWEST.
In the senate of the I . S. on the loth
of July, pending an amendment of the
committee relative to the proposed im
provement of the Hennepin canal, Mr.
Ingalls (Kansas) advanced the propo
sition that the benefit arising from
cheap transportation of wheat inures
alone to the consumer, and that the pro
ducer gains nothing. Surprised at the
proposition , Senator John II. Mitchell
of Oregon replied at length, from which
we extract as follows: Now, this can
not be correct, because the price of
wheat in the* Liverpool market is regu
lated not by the price of transportation
in this country but from the competi
tion from other countries, Australia,
India, Russia and western Asia. Ami
1 can. pel haps, better than in any other
way illustrate my views by discussing
the question witn reference to the pro
posed appropriations in this bill for the
improvement of the rivers and harbors
of tbe Pacific Northwest.
The subject of appropriations is then
reviewed, after which Mr. Mitchell
says: The area drained by the Colum
bia river, we are told by the report of
the Chief of engineers on our desks, is
estimated at 245,000 square miles; an
area he correctly states, larger than
all the New England aud Middle states,
