A hundred pieces of &rtillerv, 10.000 muskets, and immense magazines, fell into the hands of the victors. This constant and great success so pleased Ilapo'eon, that he immediately took 17,00 men from the army of Mac donald, and attached them to that of Suclwt; thus increasing it to 42.000, and called it the Army of Arraeon. A part of Catalonia w as embraced in its operations, and the siege of Taracona committed to it.

St. Michaels is located on an island CO miles to the northward of the northern mouth of the river, and is an old trailing post founded by the Russian 1 ur Co. in lTr. because it was the nearest point to which a seagoing vessel could approach the mouth of the Yukon. The trouble with the navigation of the Yukon arises fiom its immense delta, over v.hich there is a dcth of scarcely more than two fathoms "of water at high tide, although it must be admitted that very little is known about it at present, and there may be other passes which have not been discov ered. At any rate, under present arrange ments passengers and freight destined for river points must be re-shipped at St. Minhaels to the little stem v. heel river bouts which make the journey around the coast to the Aproon mouth f the river, whence there is an uninterrupted run of 1.M0 miles to Fort Selkirk, at the mouth of the Pell v. The great advantage of taking this route into the Alaska gold region arises from its safety and the ease with which it may be made. The tiemendous efforts necessary and the perils incident to the overland journev across the passes and down the upper reacb.es of the Yukon are all avoided and miners going in by the water route arrive fresh and with their physical powers unimpaired by the hard ships which must tie encouniereu oj tuu ! other ivay If. therefore, gold nuntcis are -fiUlr. i, rM-irli n-inir lmnnlifMiCf? or Wish to tr.V their fortunes in new fields lower down the river the beit thing for them to do is to so time their start as to arrive at St. Michaels in June and go by the ocean voyage.

Pratf. on OTnerienced officer of the United States; Coast anil C.orulr't'u' Survev. will leovo Washington with a pary on May 1 to undertake the worlc 61 exploring six knoVn mouths of the great river. Tluree years ago he was at the head of a parly which surveyed the Alaskan boundary in the neighborhood of the Chilcoot Pass, so that he has had ex perience in pioneer work in this latitude. He will have six scientific assistants, and will take with him a force of about thirty others, all men inured to the peculiar dan gers of life in the Arctic. The magnitude of the work .which is to be undertaken irav be realized when it is known that the delta of the Yukon is the largest in the world. The bar which stretches before it extend! from St. Michaels Island or, the north to Point Dyea oi) the south, a distance of 17u miles, and its average width is calculated by occasional navigators as -10 miles. This area is nearly equal, there fore, to that of the State of Massachusetts. Soundings have never been taken over any portion of it. and it is an unexplored expanse of shal low water, so far as known. Mr. Pratt has orders to ex Steamkb plore this great delta thor oughly and .make soundings everywhere in order to discover a channel for sea-going vessels if possible. He will carry with him all his implements and provisions for a distance of nearly three thousand miles, the most important part of his outfit being prepared in New iork City. He will take three steam launches, the construction of which he has been super intending, two of 32 feet and one of To feet in length. .. These will be shipped across the conti nent by rail to Seattle, and thence by a revenue cutter to St. Michaels.

There is only about three months time during which boats of tins size can work on the ground, owing to the pack ice which will begin to come down the river in the Fall, and it is to be ex pected that at least one-half of this time will be so stonny a,s to render the taking of soundings impossible. ready for a new marine chart to be pub lished by next Springn; TnE5 FOSSES, a: 3ic In last week's issue-several of the passes into the Klondike region through south eastern Alaska Cwerc fully described.
