The Great River. The Columbia and its tributaries per meate a region embracing 12 degrees of latitude and 13 degrees of longitude. Its vast importance as a means of con tinual transit, is at once appreciated, by the statement of the fact that a portage of 4. r »0 miles is only required to connect the navigable waters of the Columbia and Missouri rivers. With compara tively inconsiderable portages in the Cascade gorge, at>ove the Dalles, at Priest's and Bu< kland's rapids, and at the mouth of the Methow, the Colum bia river is navigable to Kettle Falls, a distance of 7*25 miles from ita mouth. As this distance is so largely caused by the big l>ez.d of the river. White Bluffs is the practical bead of navigation. A road due north from that point thereby avoiding the big bend, would strike the Columbia near the 49th parallel, from whence it could l>e navigated northward about K>o miles, into the very heart of the richest raining region in British Columbia. Again connect ing by road the mouth of the Walla Walla river with the mouth of Powder river, (one of tbe main tributaries of the Snake) there is a reach of about 100 miles upon Snake river navigable for steamers. An English paper says the question of using iron or steel rails, that has so long perplexed railway companies has been finally settled in favor of the former, experiments hav ing resulted in making a first-class rail of great durability out of Cleveland iron. The rails so produced are be lieve 1 to l>c more lasting thau steel, while much cheaper, and when worn out can l>e worked over again, while steel ran not.
