THE PUGET SOUND COUNTRY.
. The following extract from a letter writ
ten <by ' Californian : now ;in the ) Puget
Sound country will . prove . interesting to
parties having an idea of locating in that
region : i; pj
the CITY. of VICTORIA i '--Xp X;..
Is beautifully located ; has some very nice
residences , belonging to j English nabobs.
But the town is dead ; business dull, and a
great many houses are to rent and for sale.
Goods are | sold j as cheap as in San Fran
cisco, and some,' such as silks and velvet,
are sold much : cheaper. : The ; terminus .of
the Canadian railroad is at a small place
called Yale. The total force employed on
it _at i present is '•■! 330 " white men and
101 ' Chinese. . . The Skagit : mines : seem
to be the bane of contention Z-. between
Seattle . and Victoria, while Port . Town
send, a little : new place, opposite the
Sound \ and j between these . two , places,"
criticises their actions and laughs at
them for : fighting ; over a;- bone, so bare
of meat. 'Victoria • proclaims to the world
the ; wonders of wealth >-. that lie .in the
Skagit only attainable by coming to Vic
toria and taking the Fort Hope route, while
Seattle strikes nearly a ■ bee line through
brush and bramble, upon hands and knees,
clambering up precipices with ladders, and
wading through snow five or six feet deep."
The returned miners call it Scratchit, and
according to their reports of , the place they
give it a very appropriate name. Scores of
disappointed men with blankets are to be
seen in the two-bit house 'in Seattle and
upon the wharves cursing the country. But
little gold has been taken . out yet, , and it
is almost impossible to get machinery and
supplies to the mines till a better trail has
been cut out.
prXX.'ijJ - .SEATTLE : ; . ;■•:■'.
Is tho most enterprising town onthe Sound.
It has about 4,000 inhabitants, consider
able capital and quite a number of ener
getic men. The town is destined to be a
great place. It has a very good harbor,
but a poor site for a city, being built upon
a high bank and very little level ground.
Innumerable stumps are seen on every
hand, the forest of pine and fir being very
dense. Its ■ exports are ".lumber, staves,
coal, hops and furs. The 'soil is almost
worthless for farming, it being very light
and sandy, and it costs $75 to clear and
fence an acre. Hops and potatoes are ex
tensively raised on the river bottoms, but
the weather is too cool for corn and vines—'
i. c. melons and pumpkins. A narrow
gauge railroad runs from the town to the
coal mine. East of the mountains is a
large open country which , is being Bet
tied up very rapidly. This will draw its
supply of timber and coal from the Sound
and will certainly become tributary to it.
Has about five or six hundred inhabitants.
It is at present the terminus of the North
ern Pacitic. The railroad runs from here
to Portland. Old Tacoma is a dilapidated,
forsaken place, and only a very few fam
ilies live there. : In New Tacoma nearly
every house appears entirely new, and there
are quite a number in process of construc
tion. . There are no enterprising men here
and no capital. The people are discour
aged. A few men are employed in the rail
road machine shops and foundry. This is j
the only enterprise in the town. It has the
most beautiful site for a city I ever : saw,
being a gradual slope to the southeast and
east. The Sound, a lovely, glassy sheet of
water, is visible for many miles to the left,
and the w- capped Cascades are. seen to
the right, while a magnificent . view of
Mount Rainier, the highest mountain :in
the Territory, is had.
I have, been on the Sound now nearly
two weeks, and . it has rained every day,
with but one day of sunshine, and to a
Californian this spoils everything. I would
not advise any poor man who is looking for
a place to make money to come to . this
country. Money . must be brought here
before it can be made here. There are too
many hero now. A man told me to-day
that most of those employed in building
were working out old board bills," and it
is impossible for any stranger to get work.
It is only those who have ' burned their
ships behind them," by selling all and
bringing their families with them and have
not enough to go back with that stay. Tho
good times | and chances to make money
that the papers "blow" so much about are
all in prospect. Capital : has got to come
here first to develop it, and ' this will not
be till the surrounding country is settled
up. This is a splended country for rich
men to make themselves richer by invest
ing their money and waiting for develop
ments, but a poor man has no business this
side of the Cascades > yet. The railroad
company is ; now surveying the different
passes of the Cascades, and the people on
this side are waiting in breathless suspense
to learn which : pass will be determined
upon. When this question is settled and
the branch railroad from Walla Walla to
the Sound is started, then there will be a
rush to either this place or Seattle. South
east of this town lies a fertile valley, called
' _ PUYALLITP, - . V '
Not much smaller than Napa valley. It is
thickly | timbered I with largo cottonwood
trees, alders, hemlock and various others,
but no oak j or ■ beach ; I some soft j maple.
But six miles square of the best | and most
fertile part is reserved by the Government
for 1 the Siwash ; Indians. Some of them
have ; little patches -in cultivation. The
Government supports a boarding school for
them about four miles from here. A rail
road runs the whole length of this valley
to the coal mines. %.:.'./

; . j ; SECRETARY _- SCHURZ J AT . INDIANAPOLIS.
Indianapolis, July ; 20th.— Hon. Carl
Schurz, Secretary of . the Interior, addressed
an immense assemblage of Republicans at the
Wigwam to-night. -'- ->;-'• Vr.jp.yp
7 - The Secretary said he intended to reason
and not to excite the passions of his auditors,
and then in a masterly way proceeded to set
forth the reasons why the Republican party
under field would do vastly better woik for
the country than the Democracy under Han
cock. The chances of the Greenbackers were
not visible ones..:. He alluded with some per
sonal pride to the , record of the Administra
tion now about to surrender its duties into
other hands. While not free from blemish,
it was in every way creditable. . lie reviewed
at considerable length the unsavory record of
the Democratic party on the question of seces
sion, slavery and finance. . . It j was : not
a : Tip question of honoring :.■„- a worthy
General, but - of giving ; the country . the
kind of President it needs. . He pointed out
that an army officer who had no previous
training as a statesman was at a sad disad
vantage in handling the affairs of statecraft,'
in which he was wholly or even partially un
skilled ; that he became . frequently - bewil
dered, often did wrongly, got discouraged or
reckless, and did incomparable injury to the
Government, no matter how pu^e, able or
steadfast. : He declared that there has been
wonderful progress ; in ! civil service reform
during the present administration, and that
the Democratic party was pledged by in
stinct and platform to make a mockery of
such reform. ; Such ' a policy, carried ■ out,
would in four years do almost irreparable in
jury to the country, which is coming to demand
a further advance rather than retrogression
into the spoils system. He : made a strong
appeal for the election of Porter in Indiana,
and : concluded :;.:." Democracy may in
course of , time gain the confidence of the
people, but . tbat should be only when repu
diationists and advocates of unsound money
have ceased to be in its ranks so powerful and
influential an element as seriously to threaten
the great economical interests of the country ;.
when by energetic ! and successful action in
protecting the rights of the voter, whether
white or * black, whether Republican or
Democratic, in . all parts of the
country, and by the suppression ,of fraud
at- the ballot-box through a healthy
and irresistible power of public opinion with
in itself, it was to have won the right to ap
pear in its platforms as the protector of the
freedom and purity of elections, and when
it will be found no longer necessary to dis
card the ablest of its statesmen and to put a
General of the army, who has never been
anything but a soldier, in nomination for the
Presidency, to make for itself a certificate of
loyalty to the settlement of the great conflicts
of the past, and for all these reasons, in my
opinion, the interests of the republic de
mand I the election of James A. Garfield to
the Presidency of the United States.''

A QUESTION OF THANKS.
.. Paying one's seif is an art not understood
by all ; and there are cases, when the le
gitimate paymaster is remiss or intention
ally mean, in which some knowledge of the
science is beneficial. John Henry, twelve
years-old youth of Boston, of whose per
sonality and last operation we were the
other day made aware, is evidently one of
those who may have begun in ignorance of
the philosophy, but if so ho is certainly
acquiring the .! knowledge '_■ by degrees. A
few weeks since, passing along one of the
commercial streets of •■ the ' Hub, he was _
attracted by a very small package, picked
it up, and discovered it to .be one hundred
dollars , and Ta ,-' rent- bill. The ; , rent-bill
conveyed the name and : address of the
losers, and John Henry at once presented
himself at the store occupied -by them,
where he found the eirand boy in tears and
very nearly in fits, under the scoldings he
had experienced for losing the money when %
on the way to pay a certain ' monthly rent,' - :
and the fear of losing bis place as a pun
ishment. When the finder laid down the
money and the bill, the errand-boy nearly.;
went out of his senses with joy, and at once
implored bis employer to pay him his salary
for the week,' that he might give it to his
benefactor. This j was j scoffed by the em
ployer, and i necessarily declined by John
Henry, who , left ° his treasure- trove ' and "'
went on ■ his way thinking a little, possi
bly, as was afterwards made apparent. - A
week later he was in the same neighbor
hood,' and it commenced to rain. He bent
his steps to the | store -which he had before
visited, went in,' and commenced an exam- '
ination of a line of goods largely consisting
of costly umbrellas. *■' At last, having suited
himself with a very nice specimen of the
genus : paraplnie,"i worth, possibly,': six ;, to j".
seven dollars, he approached the counter at
which the ; same ; merchant \ was • standing J
to v. whom ?• he had % delivered his ' "find,"
and 'Jj thus ;_"; declared if ; his '_. : intentions :'.'■'
"You know X me, don't - \euV" . "Yes,"
answered the merchant, after scanning his
face a moment, "Yes j you are the young ||
man who brought back some money he had ; •

John \ Henry iiisj'. Yes '■; liam l the ; young "ir-.
