The only road practicable for wagons, at

beyond which it branches near the Salt

INDEPENDENCE lus been the point
selected by the State and National Gov
ernments, for the departure of the Milita
ry and Exploring expeditions to Oregon,
Mexico and California, both before and
during the war, and of their return snd
discharge. Other points higher up the
Missouri, as Weston, St. Joseph nnd the
Mormon settlement near Council B'uTs,
hive occasionally been selected by emigra
ting parlies. Tlieso places have nil the
disadvantage of being on the eastern bank
of the Missouri, and as yet, far behind
Independence in theubundance, adaptation
and cheapnes of supplies.
Allow me to repeal some facts stated by
me on my return from the Pacific, in IS 14:
The maralime country, on the Pacific
extends along Ihe ocean from San Diego to
Vancouver's Island, and is confined be
tween the snowy ridge of the Sierra Ne
vada and the beach. Its average width
exceeds 150 miles its length lCO. This
Sierra Nevada is the prolongation of the
Andes of Chili, Perue, Columbia, Central
America end Mexico preserving nil its
ch iracterislics unaltered, of great height,
volcanoes volcanic rock and lava. It is
grander here than m South America, be
cause receding from the coast, it is accom
panied by this maralime region, which
gives room for a series of fine rivers.
The lhimiventuru, San Joachim, Sacra
mento, Shasiy river, ihe Flnmeth. Ump
qna, Wallametle, Columbia, Puget's
This v hole region therefore abounds
ilh the same mineral productions as Span
ish America ; whilst it has its own grand
excellencies for commerce, agriculture
both arable and pastoral, infinite fisheries,
loresls, internal navigation snd position
between the valley of the Mississippi and
China a delicious and tranquil climate,
and sublime scenery make this incontesta
b'y the finest new counlry of which the
human race has yet anywhere possessed
itself. Yours Respectfully.
