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
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

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.
