TIM N@RTHEUN PAGIOIe I.AI
Lat week we pubis.ehedas acticl.from ts Baalo
.prem, 49tting forth the dvtagd to he seard
by the ea ry bcomslstoli odf the Northeran ?aclc
Railroed In that article many comahading facts
were pointd out; but some, of no small moment,
were omitted; wherefore we refer to the subject
again. Of the supeririity of this route, from shbort
nees of distance and cheapness of construction, over
the Central route, there can be no question. Gov
ernment surveys have amply demonstrated this. The
reports of McClellan, Domelson and Mhllan-each
being at the head of a separate expedition-concur
in pronouncing this Northern route the most feasi
ble ever explored.
Although the local business by either route would
be immense, the enormous expenditure necessary to
this gigantic enterprise demands that it shall first be
considered with reference to the Asiatic trade. Thus
considered, it presents itself as an enterprise inwhich
all commercial nations have an interest in common
the great highway between the Orient and the Occi
dent, over which most pass the traffcing wealth of
both hemispheres. The commercial revolution which
took place in the Elizabethan age-when all Europe
was dazssled by the prospective wealth of the New
World, and when the tardy, perilous route to the
Indies by Southern Europe was superseded by voy
ages around Cape Horn-could not have been as
marked as that whichwill follow the consummation
of this great work. The thousands of ships which
are now passing ardund Capes Horn and Good Hope,
will have made their last voyage through those
waters; but, under the more rapid and less costly
facilities of transportation afforded by this railway,
commerce would be so stimulated that necessity
would call for an increase, rather than decrease, of
their number. Then would the Pacific between Puget
Sound and the Japanese Islands and Hong Kong, and
the Atlantic between New York and Liverpool
and Havre de Grace, be thronged with mer
chantmen to such an extent that one would
r scarcely ever be out of sight of another. Chi
nese and Japanese selfishness could no longer even
partially withstand the pressure of progressive civi
lisation; their walls of exclusiveneess would be
totally razed, and their hoarded wealth of centuries,
their teas, their spices, the products of their handi
work-all which they now know or possess as pecu
liarly their own-would be brought forth, with2pt
,an w, ni manrkind at large.
The mare local trade along the line of the road
would be the verert trifle in comparison with this
prime object-that of developing and rendering easily
available to the civilized world, the mighty resources
of the Asiatic nations. Expedition, in this era of
high interest rates, is a leading gonsideration in
commercial transactions ; and, the shorter the dis
tance, of course, the less the cost and the time con
sumed in making the trip. It follows, then, that
this road should be constructed with a view, partic
ularly, to making the most advantageous ocean con
nections. By the shortest and quickest route, the
two-fold advantage is gained of lessened cost in
freight and increased time for the active use of cap
ital. Let us now compare the Northern and the
Central route as to distance. New York City is on
the 41st parallel; San Francisco is on the 38th
three degrees south of New York. The terminus of
the Northern route on Puget Sound, is on the 48th
parallel of latitude-l0 deg. north of San Francisco
but is on the same longitude, the number of degrees
of longitude between the two points and New York
being the same. But degrees of longitude decrease
as latitude increases, and, though San Francisco and
Puget Sound are on the same longitude, the latter is
over three hundred miles nearer New York than the
former. The reader can extend the calculation, on
this basis, at his leisure, between Liverpool and
Yeddo, in Japan, (which two points are really the
termini of this world's highway); he will find that
the distance saved by the Northern route amounts to
* more than a thousand miles.
more ;nan a uuvu-uu Y
But supposing this difference in distance did not
exist, other considerations being the same; still cir
Cumstances would declare in favor of the Northern
a against the Central route. The Northern route is
oa the line of the Great lakes, which offer a water
carriage of several hundred miles, that could not be
taken advantage of on the Central route. Again,
as we have been told by experienced Pacific naviga
tors, ships leaving San Francisco Bay for Hong Kong
or Yeddo, find it to their advantage, by the uneal
course of the winds on that voyage, to come up to
the.latitade of Paget Sonad, and then bear north
rather than south of that line, the greater part of
So far as the natural advantages of tbe respecive
routee are concerned, we think the balance of fact is
on our side. An examination of the latest meteor
ological charts will satisfy the investigator that the
climatical objection to the Northern route is ill
founded; or at least, that it has no more weight
against it than the Central route. The mountain
ranges of New Mexico-far south of the Central
route-are set down in the same winter temperature
as the ranges of Montana and Idaho; and the isoth
ral lines involve them alike. The altitude of the
Rocky Mountains where the Northern line would
Icros, is somewhat les than that of the South Pass.
The Wahsatch, the Humboldt and the Sierra Nevada
Mountains, each, oppose greater difcultie to the
I Central route than would be encountered by all the
elevations of the Northern route. The perfect prac
tiability of the Northern route has been scientifc
ally demonstrated three several times. Its coWse is
not benet by lng arid wastes, as is that of the Cen
tral; but it passe through well watered and well
timbere regions, the adaptability of which to ari
culture, the greater part of the distance, has een

El Dorado Canon and Fort Mohave, which they now
hold in force. Irataba was captured on the Island,
as he was directing the burning of the provisions
and the retreat of his people. The Piutes dared not
kill him, on account of the whites, but strippedhim
of his Major-General's uniform, and sent him to
Fort Mohave, where he was engaged, on the 16th

"In default of bail the prisoners were committed
for seven days, but it is not clear whether they were
sent to prison for singing seditious songs, or for
creating an obstruction by collecting a crowd
