The Excursion.
On Friday ot Last week the North
West, Capt. Stump was induced to
steam up Soake river above Lewistou,
and give our people a chance to witness
the speed and character of the new boat
in the cur r ent of the river. 120 persons
old young were on board about 10.45,
A. M. Lines were cast off and off we
went. The day was fair and warm. The
boat went over to the Washington shore
and passed under the wire of the uoper
ferry, and was soon at the foot of the
rapids about 2 miles above town. S«me
had predicted that she would uot be able
I to stem the current of theso i rapids
j without great difficulty. Hence her
j movements were noticed with interest.
She proceeded up the main chantel
West of the Island and ascended these
rapids with great ease and steadily. Ote
could discern some dimintion of htr
speed, but it was so slight that ever j
one remarked that she was ample to as
scend much more difficult currents. As
the mouth of the Assotiu she made t
landing and several emigrant passeDgen
disembarked and some freight'and dun
1 nage was landed. She then proeeeded
: up the river in good style against the
current, to the satisfaction of all or.
board. Those on board soon turned
their attention from the boat ta the
scenery along the route and the enjoy
ment of their social qualities. A small
I organ had been placed on board and
I some engaged in singing aud playing,
some promenaded the decks, soim en
| gaged iu dancing, and when 12 o'clock
j arrived the lunch baskets were opeued
j and the good things that were disclosed
land soon devoured, would have tiade
i the mouth of an epicure weep. Those
who had failed to provide lor themsdves
the substantials were either supplied by
their friends or were hausomely treated
at the boat's small table by the obliging
steward. So far as we could observe oo
one felt the gnawings of an empty
stomach. We proceeded above die
mouth of Capt. John's creek and with
in about 7 miles of the mouth of tie
Grand lionde river. There we made a
landing on the Washington side, anl
many went on shore gathering flowers
and climbing up the precipitous cliff»
and bluffs, to test their agility. Th«
view from tue steamer's deck presented
several interesting tableaux. IlaviDg
remained nearly an hour, a few minutes
past 8 P. AI., we were all whistled on
board and the boat was soon headed
down stream, precisely 20 minutes past
4 we were disembarked at Lewiston.
The distance we made up the river was
full 20 miles at the rate of 0 miles per
hour, running time, and came back in
one hour and ten minutes to the head
of the slough this side of the Island op
posite the grist mill. The officers of the
boat wero all courteous and affable to
wards the passengers aud made the oc
casion a vory pleasant one. Hence we
must say that the North-West with all
her officers won honor from the people
of Lewistou.

I.etter From Delegate Fenu.
Washington, D. C. Mar. 5, 78.
To Col. McConville , Dear Sir:
Your's of the 12th ult., rec'd to-day.
Thanks. The joint resolution for arms
passed the Senate to-day, and to-mor
row will probably go to the President,
shall see him at once. Am surprised
that the arms issued last Summer are
being gathered up, as I was informed
by the Chief of Ordinance that
they would not be withdrawn until the
resolution passed. Shall to-morrow call
at the War Department, also on the
President. The call on the President
to insure au early signing of the resolu
tion, and on the War Department to
have tho order issued for the arms as
soon as the bill is signed. Shall tele
graph you as soon as arrangements are
complete, so you will have tho informa
tion before this reaches you. Yesterday
I introduced a bill to amend the joint
resolution of July 3d, 187G, 19th Ü. S.
statutes at large, Page 217, under which
these arms are obtained so as to give ter
ritories the same number as States viz
1,000, being an additional 500. I feel
confident that the bill will meet the ap
proval of the chairman of the Military
committee, aad be*recommended by the
War Department and that it can be
passed. No reasou exists why States
bordering on territories should have auy
more arms allotted them than the terri
tories. Infact the territories from their
exposed condition require more than
! States adjoining them. Will send you
| the bill as soon as printed.
Very truly your's,
S. S. Fenn.
Opinion of the Palouse People.
Tho Gazette in speaking of construct
ing the N. P. It. It. eastward from mouth
of Snake river on its present line of sur
vey. says:
"It would furnish those living in the
vicinity of its line with facilities for
shipping their produce at all times of
the season, but to a large scope of coun
try, comprising those portions of Whit
man and Nez Perce counties that are tho
most densely populated, and whose lands
are in the most advanced state of culti
vation, it would furnish no relief in
transportation whatever, as it would be
wholly impracticable to get the produce
to the road. Snake river lies much
nearer to these lands than does the pro
posed line of railroad, and upou it these
people would have to depend for ship
ping purposes.
We are well aware that the N. P. R.
R. Co. would be greatly benefited by
building this 100 miles of road, and we
hope it will be built, as it would greatly
benefit a portion of our people, but we
shall still contend that the only road
that can possibly furnish us adequate
relief will be one connecting us with
Puget Sound. We shall continue to ad
vocate the building oi such a road—a
mad that will enable us to successfully
compete with other agricultural districts
in the markets, and a road that would
piy its owners as large dividends as any
in the United States."
Just as The Teller claimed long
ago, the settled portions of the Palouse
country and those that will be densely
settled are more accessible to the Snake
and Clearwater rivers than to the pres
ent lino of the survey of their road.
Hence as we olaim the company should
change their line to the Soake river and
Clearwater rout«.
