The following Article was prepared iu a
great measure for yesterday’s iss e:
As the period of navigation may now le
considered closed for the season, the time for
the annual u reckoning up ” has come-. By
reference to our files and our Steamboat
Register for 1855, we are enabled to present
sundry tables, showing the amount of steam
boating for the past twelve years, the time of
the arrival and departure of first and last
boats, the number of, days in each year of
uninterrupted navigation, Ac. We may be
permitted to remark that the steady growth
of the steamboat interest since 184 G, exhib
its as much as any other one thing the rapid
development of the North-West. It will be j
seen that nine years since there were only
four or five boats who occasionally visited
this region, when there were supplies to bring
\ip for thesoliiers,lndians.furtradersorlum
\>ermen, and that the capital invested in the
boats could not have been more than forty
thousand dollars; while during the season
•just closed, sixty-eight steamers have been
employed, involving a capital of not less than
V>ne million of dollars.
The following table will show the number
of steamboat arrivals for 1855.

Total number of boat?, 68 ; number of ar
rivals. 503. Of these upwards of 300 have
been from Galena, Dunleit'u and Dubuque;
120 from the Minnesota River, mainly from
points below the Rapids, as the river has
been too low to admit of boats crossing fora
great portion of the season; and the rest
ViaVe been from St. Louis, Rock Island, and
(point* <m the Ohio ‘River.
Tire f«>fccfft*ng "Will show the number of
arrivals during Vue last 12 years:
1844 there were 41 arrivals.
1845 “ 48 “ increase 17 per ct
1846 “ 24 “ devr’se 50 “
1847 “ 47 “ increase 96 “
1848 “ 63 “ “ 34 “
1849 “ 85 “ “ 35 “
1850 “ 104 “ “ 22 «
1851 “ 119 “ “ 14 «
1852 “ 171 “ “ 44 “
1853 « 235 “ « 32 «
1854 « 310 “ “ 32 “
1855 “ 563 “ « 40 “
This shows thart the ratio of increase has
been greater this season tlia'rt any vAr for
tl»e last eight years, and that the average
rate of increase for the last ten years has
been about per cent. Assuming that the
average ratio of increase during the tteXt
decade will be only half as much—viz. 18
per cent—and it win make the number of
arrivals in 1865 amount to 2,900, or aWut
13 per day.
The number of boats engaged in the trade
in 1850 were 7 ; in 1851, 11; in 1852, 17 ;
in 1853, 23; in 1854, 38-, and in 1855, 68.
Tliis shows an average annual increase of 59
p r cent. If the ratio for the next ten years
is only one-fourth of the above sum, it will
give us in 1856 over 200 bolts trading with
St. Paul.
The following table Witt exhibit the dates
of the arrival of the first boat from below
'Lake Pepin, for the same series of years :
1844 Ottter, Capt Harris, April 6;
1845 “ * “ u “ 6.
1846 Lynx, Capt. Atchison, March 31.
■ 1847—Cora, Capt. Throckmorton, April 7
1848— Senator, Capt. Harris. April 7.
1849 Highland Mary, Atchison, April 9.
1850— u “ “ 19.
1851— Nominee, Capt. Smithj April 4.
1852 “ u u « 16.
1853—West Newton, Harris, April 11.
1854 Nominee, Capt. Blakely, April 8.
1855 War Eagle, Capt. Harris, April 17
The following shows the time of the de- j
.parture of the “ last boat,” and the numtier
of days of navigation during the following 1
1819, November 19—224 days of navigation, j
1850, “ 18—213 “ “
1851, “ 20—230 “ “
1852, “ 10—208 “ “
1853, “ 22—225 “ “
1854, “ 23—227 “ “
1855, “ 19—216 “ “
From the above it will appear that the av
erage period of arrival during the last twelve
years has been on the 9th of April, and the
average period for the departure of the “last
boat” during the past seven years is on the
19th of November. The average number of
day’s navigation for the same period is 211.
—lt will thus be seen that the steamboat
business of the Upper Mississippi has grown
in a few years from a comparatively insignif
icant business to one of the largest import
ance; and if we are to “judge of the filture
by the past,” figures only will be able, in a
few years, to convey an idea of the commerce
of the Northwest The trade on the Minnesota
has grown up from nothing in the last three
years. In 1850 was the first season a steam
boat ever ascended that river above the Rap
ids. In that year the Nominee, Anthony
Wayne and the Yankee all went above that
point—the Yankee reached a point above the
mouth of tbe Blue Earth. The next j'ear
witnessed tire treaty with the Sioux, and the
year following (1851) was the first season
that boats began to make trips up that riVer
with any kind of regularity, and that year
tbefe wSrc hut 13 arrivals.

The Superior Chronicle of the 13th brings
us the returns from the counties of Douglas
and La Pointe. Much to our surprise, Doug
las county, and its great city, Superior, have
not nearly done as well for “Barstow and the
balance” as they did for Rice and McCrack
en, in Minnesota on the 9th of October.—
Our DslegHtfe’s brother Orrin, it appears,
does not go to Madison officially, this year,
as we predicted some days since.
Below we give the figilres, its Jwt forth bj’
the Chronicle. Strange as it may appear,
Minnesota Point, a barren and uninhabited
I sand-bar across the bay from Superior, gave
more votes for Rice on the 9th erf" October
than the great city of Superior did for Bar
stow on the 6th of November. Perhaps our
amiable neglibors of the Chronicle can unrav
el the mystery connected with this feet.
We copy the returns from the Chronicle.
The editors, it will be seen, appear to rejoice
at the election of Mr. Gray to the Assem
bly over Orrin W. Rice:
“The whole number of rotes cast were one
hundred and two:
Barstow, - - - - 88

The vote for the remainder of each State
ticket is in about the same proportion;

John Van Buren —The Washington
Union reads John Van Buren out of the
Locofoco parly after this fashion:
“ We have indicated pretty distinctly our
opinion as to the propriety of allowing him
to run at large in the Democratic fold any
longer. As we have caught him secretly
going over and ploughing with the abolition
heifer, we shall use our influence to have the
door closed against his return, llis perfor
mances in coarse humor and slip-shod buf
foonery have secured him from responsibility
long enough ; it is time to treat him, tint as
a political mountebank, but as a traitor to
the Democratic party.”
The Spanish language is said to be
spoken by seventeen millions of persons in
America and five millions in Asia.
Where the Specie Goes.— The Presse,
a Paris paper, has the follow ing explanation
why the b&riks of England and France are
impoverished in specie:
Every one is aware of the principal rea
sons which caused 6uch large quantities of
specie to be drawn from the banks of Franee
and England—money required in the Eastern
war, and by the negotiation of the Turkish
loan in London, the insufficiency of the crops
which forced France to buy her grain abroad
and also the high price of silver in compari
son with gold. Every packet ship sent to
China or to the Indies take on board more
than feh millions of francs in silver, and
there are also very large quantities sent to
the United States.
MiLAKdiT.—This name is becoming most
popular in Paris. It is to be given to a new
French steamer, which will be unchristened
of its present name in consequence. Many
horses are already in possession of it; a
book has been published finder it j a shop
has beeti dedicated to it) and a great-coat has
been invented ia commemoration of it.

Land Surveys in New MEticb—-The
Surveyor Geaeral of New Mexico writes to
the Commissioner of the General Land Office
from Santa Fe, that he has closed a contract
for a survey of 6ix hundred miles of the cor
rection or standard parallel lines east of the
■ principal meridian, and also west of Said me
i ridian, and south of the base line. The dif
ficulties of carrying forward these surveys
during the dry season are represented to be
very great. The deputy surveyors have been
paying 75cents per gallon for water for them
selves and nmles w hile sunning a large por
tion of the work.
Mr: Estate —The executors
of the estate of Haniel Webster, have sent
printed circulars to persons having claims
against the same, m which it is stated that
the nett amounts oT assets in their hands is
$35,180 89, and the ffmount of claims is
about $185,000. The executors are now
making a distribution among the creditors.
They divide twenty-one and three-quarters
per centum, retaining in hand about one per
Centum to defray the expenses and changes
in the iffit against the city of New Orleans
for a claim of $25,000 for counsel fees in the

American Minister and all the prisoners had
been released.
The people of Nicaragua seemed much
pleased with the change in affairs. Great
satisfaction was expressed with the treaty of
peace and all the appointments. Walker
punished severely all offences among his own
or native troops. No misconduct of any kind
was allowed.
Ihe Sierra Nevada brought down a large
force of volunteers to join the Democratic
party under Gen. Walker. Col. E. J. C.
Kewen, a distinguished lawyer of San Fran
cisco, was among the number. Kinney still
remained at Greytown with only ten or
twelve men—some of whom are suffering
from sickness—Simeon Forrester, of Salem,
Mass., one of his party, having died. Walk

Kinney and bis men out of the country.
WuUajlw Territory—ladian Disturbances.
We have received by the Columbia files of
the Puget Sound Courier to the sth inst.
They are principally taken up with the In
dian disturbances m that neighborhood. We
copy the following from the Courier of the
latest dates:
By persons from Seattle we learn that five
citizfcns of that place, who left in different
companies for the Coleville mines, have been
murdered on the east side of the Cascade
mountains. We have the particulars con
cerning two, Messrs. W alker and Jameson.
The names of the others are Stevens, Fanioy
and Eaton. J
Mr. Merrilet, one of those who escaped,
reports that the patty left Seattle w ith pack
animals and provisions, to prospect the east
ern scope Of the Cascade Mountains. The
party, consisting of five persons, crossed
through the Snoqualmoo pass, and prospected
to the Yakima valley. W hen within twenty
miles of the Catholic miseion they concluded
to start for Colville. After they had started
for thd Colville COttdtfj they Were overtaken
by two Indians mounted ah<l well armed,
who inquired where they were going, and on
being told to Fort Colville, replied that they
were on the wrong trail, but if they would
follow them they would show the right otie;
The party assented and wheeled about, trav
eling back nearly to the camping ground of
the previous night. Two of the party,
Messrs. Jameson and Walker, got ahead of
the party about half a mile, accompanied by
the Indians, When two shots were heard by
the party in the redri nothing was t.h/*»ght
of the report at the time, but oil cPmilig up
to the spot, found their two comrades lying
in the trail, shot through thfeir backs. Wal
der was shot dead, but Jameson was alive
when first discovered, and remarked that
they were shot by the Indians, and imme
diately expired; The Indians had stripped
them of fire arms and accoutrements, and
driven off their horses. The party after a
few moments consultation, cut the pack
saddles from the animals, and taking some
pork and Hour, left the trail and took to the
hills, traveling till midnight. Next day on
striking the trail they saw the tracks‘of a
band of Indians following them, whereupon
they took to the hills again, and after six
days of toil and privation reached Seattle.
A fort is being built at Seattle, by the ci
tizens residing there, for the better protec
tion against the Indians. Great apprehen
sion is felt that they may attack the place ;
about all the people living back have left their
farms and irioVed into town.
A company of U. S. troops, commanded
by Lieut. Slaughter, had left Steilacoom for
the purpose of chastising the hostile Indians
east of the mountains.
Sisters of Charity it Alton. —A cor
respondent of the St. Louis Republican states
that the Sisters of Charity are about estab
lishing themselves permanently at Alton.—
They have purchased a large building in the
lower part of the city for educational purpo
ses, and will open a Young Ladies’ Seminary
in due t ime. The lots are already purchased
also for a hospital, of which the Sisters will
have charge. The efforts to establish these
institutions are partly due to the action of
the recent Provincial Catholic Council in St.
Louis, whereby the Alton Church was made
the head of a diocese for Southern Illinois,
and they have been aided in a very liberal
manner by the Protestant portion of the
M :ss Andrews.— The Washington papers

who so heroically devoted her services to the

fieTed of the sum of $2,500 for the benefit
of Eunice C. Culver, whose affections he had
trifled with. Among other facts brought out
during the trial was one in relation to a very
large hawk, which Fred had exhibited to
Eunice. The way it hSpphned was detailed
by Eunice’s mother, in Court, ifa this wise :
“At one time Dwight SaW fetiniee mopping

and se a big hawk there was there; She
went out, and in a moment I went oiit to

Severe Fighting with the Indiant.
We are indebted to Mr, Galbraith, of the
Crescent City Express, for the following par
ticulars of the openitig of an Indian war in
Rogue River Valley- As to the leading cau
ses of this outbreaki tfite massacre of the mi
ners on the Upper Rlamath. in the latter
put of July, the murder of Several packers,
teamsters and travelers,, on the different
routes near the Oregon bd’indary line, and
more recently, the killing of two wagoners
and ther six teams near Cottonwood by the
Indians; all these must still be fresh in the
recollection of our readers. T 1 e military at
Fort Lane, Oregon Territory, seemed to be
powerless in either restraining or punishing
the marauders, and the goadea population
tvere at last compelled to rise fdr their own
Mr. Galbraith left Jacksonville on Tues
day, the 9th inst., and the fidlowing are the
tttftin events which happened np to that time:
A Volunteer force of 100 or 124 men had
been formed, and after having completed
their arrangements, they proceeded on Sun
day evening, the 7th inst., to the mouth of
Butte Creek, in the vicinity of Fort Lane, in
several parties, according to the number of
the Rancherias and befinteanded respectively
by Major Dupton, 3G men; Captain Williams
14; Messrs. Bruce, Miller and Hays, 11 men
each; Mr. Harris, 18; and Mr. Newcomb, 17
men. Early on Monday morning, the volun
teers approached Rancherias and tbe Indians
first fired i pin Harris’ command. The fight
then became general and cr.de:! :r the tetr!
defeat of the Indians, forty of whom were
left dead on the ground, and afterwards bur
ied by the mditary from Fort Lane. Of the
volunteers, twelve men were wounded; one
of their number, Major Lupton, who had re
ceived an arrow in the left breast, died on
Monday night; and another, named Shep
pard, wounded in the abdomen, it is thought
will not recover. Mr. Galbraith also states
that on Tuesday it was reported at Jackson
ville that the Indians had burnt the house of
Mr. Jones, while the owner himself was kill
ed and his wif£severely, wounded. Dr. Bark
well was called to atteild on the lady, but it
is thought she cannot recover. Messrs. Wag
oner, Evans and Tuff, are also supposed to
have been killed and their houses and prop
erty destroyed. Dr. Crane, U; S: A., and
Dr. Barkwell were indefatigable in their ex
ertions to assist and relieve the wounded.
Major Haller Surrounded. —The Belle
has jwst arrived, and brings the startling news
that the troops under command of Major
Haller have been sbrrounded by the Indians
at a point about twenty-five miles from the
Haller’s position is upon a hill, with ra
vines and brush around him. His troops and
animals have been without water for forty
eight hours. The Indians are constantly fir
ing upon them. He was enabled to send a
messenger through the ranks of the Indians
ih the night, and he reached the Dalles Mon
day evening at 8 o’clock. The steamer Was
co left immediately for the Cascades and the
Belle brought the express to Vancouver forth -
with; She arrived here to-day about twelve
o’clock. Immediately on the arrival of the
messenger at the Dalles, Lieut. Day prepar
ed to leave for the seat of war with the re
maining foment thp Dsilles, numbering about
ohfe hundred and fifty meh. He was to leave
this morning about daylight* Major Haller
calls for a thousand mctl to aid him. We
learn that a requisition has been made out
for that number and forwarded to the proper
officers. Frottt bur informant we learned that
several of the beseiged had been killed. Our
information was hastily feceived and may be
incorrect ih some of its parts; but we give it
as we received it, hoping it may not prove so
disastrous as we understood it. Now is the
time for action:
Mcrder or Mr. Bolon, Indian Agent.
—The report that Mr. Bolon had been killed
is confirmed by further testimony. A Cath
olic Misslofiafy at the Yakima haS reported
his death to the Mission at the Dalles. The
maimer of his death was as follows: Bolon
had been to the Yakima Mission and was re
turning to the Dalles; three Indians came up
with him, and after riding along some little
distance, one of the party, son of a Chief, fell
behind the others, ind shot feolon ih the
back of the head. Another report 6ays that
aftfer shooting him they cut his throat.
