PAPER NO. 8.
Ti)<- English vessels captured by
tbe Bj> iniards at Nootka were sub
sequently returned to tbe English
government. Ou tbe 18th of Octo
ber, 1789, Count Revillagiyedo
took command of New Spain. He
Immediately took steps to keep
Nootka Irom foreign powers, Mar
tiutz having pursuant to orders of
the Viceroy who preceded Rev
illagiyedo abandoned its occupa
tion. On tbe 3d of February,
1790, there sailed from Sun Bias
the frigate Coucepcion, the packet
boat Ban Carlos und the schooner
Princesa Royal, under the com
mand of Lieutenant Don Francisco
Eliza. They arrived at Nootka on
tbe 3d of April. Eliza had instruc
tions to fortify tbe place, aud pro
oure tbe amicable relation of the
Indiaus by treating tbem with
kindness. He was uot to interfere
with tbe Russians or any other
foreign power without royal or
ders and was to explore thorough
ly (he coasts up to the 60Lh degree,
especially Cook's River and the
Straits of Juau de Fuca. The in
structions were followed and suc
cess attended tbe Spaniards. They
were never molested by Russians,
English or Americans. There was
a treaty entered into between
Spalu aud Eugland as to the navi
gation, commerce and fisheries lv
the Pacific ocean aud South sea, ou
tbe 28th of Ootnber, 1790.
Revillagiyedo deslriius of ending
tbe disputes uud avoiding future,
complications between Spain aud
England, suggested that a line,
taking tbe 48 li degree, should tie
eatabliebed between the two
countries. Another expedition to
accomplish the object suggested by
Revillagiyedo, lettStU Bias on the
Ist of March, 1792. It was com
posed of tbe Santa Oertrudis under
Don Aloiizo de Torres, the frigate
Princesa and the new schooner
Active, under the respective com
mand of Salvador Hidalgo aud
Mendez Valdez. Although the
Aotlva and Princesa had to re
turn to repair damages oaused by a
storm, tbey again set out, the Prin
ces* arriving at tbe straits of Fuca
and the Acti va at Nootka It seems
that the Spanish government
had iutended delivering Nootka
to the English, and Captain Bodega
had beeu ordered so to do, but the
English Captain Vancouver, not
being satisfied with the delivery of
possession because It contained
some conditions that he was un
willing to accept, declined to take
possession. Bodega had returned
to Monterey. Tbe English, on
tbis occasion, experienced tbe very
best treatment at the bands of tbe
Spaniards, furnishing Vancouver
with provisions for his trip to
Botany Bay, Tbe English Com
mander desired to pay for all tbe
materials and provisions furnished
tbem by the Spaniards, but these
refused to luke anything, and Van
couver grateful for so much kind
ness, made a present of. two thous
and dollars aud some agricultural
Implements to the Presidio aud
Missions of Monterey.
Tbe Spaniards oommeuced again
to explore the uorlheru coast
above Nootka, on the 4tb of May
1791. Lieut. Hidalgo had com
mand of this exploring party, ar
riving at Prince William's Bay on
tbe 24th of May. He reooonoltered
thoroughly all the coast. He dis
covered tbe island of Montagu, ex
amined Cook's river, but was com
pelled to returu owing to heavy
fogs aud bad weather, having gone
as far as the 57th degree. He re
turned to San Bias ou the 13th of
November. Hidalgo fouud two Rus
sian establishments at Cook's river
and oue ou the island of Codiac.
He, besides, took possession of tbe
bay and roadstead on tbe east of
Prince William's Bay, which he
called, respectively, Cordoba and
Meneudez; and on the uortli of the
great bay be took possession of v
port naminc it Oraviua. On
Cook's river hs took possession of
another pott which be called Re
villagiyodo
Although the straits of Juan de
Fuoa had been partially reconnoi
tered in 1789, uo accurate explora
tion had been made until 1790 by
Quimpe, aud iv 1791 by Eliza.
Royal orders were given in 1791 to
thoroughly explore the straits to
ascertain If it had auy connection
with Hudson's or Baffin's bay.
Don Francisco Antouio de More-lie
was entrusted with the expedition,
and sailed from Sau Bias ou tbe 9th
of March, 1792. He had instruc
tions to go as high as thesSth
degree, aud by all means to satisfy
himself if thete was any commu
nication between the two oceaus.
The expedition reached the
straits aud ou tbe 21st of June
sighted the vessels under the com
mand of Vancouver. Both expedi
tions were sailing witli the same
object uud it was found conclusive
ly that the straits did uot commu
nicate with the Bays of Hudson or
Baffin. Tbey found many ludians
who supply commerce with furs.
The Spanish expedition returned
to San Bias on tbe 23d of Novem
ber, after experiencing very rough
weather in sight of the Faralloues,
near Sau Francisco. The frigate
Arauziza made another expedi
tion iv 1792, reaching tbe 55th de
gree, but found nothing but what
already was known by previous
expeditious.
Revillagiyedo was very anxious
to have accurate reports of the na
ture of the country between Han
Franuisoo aud the 48th degree, aud
had given orders to send au expe
dition for that purpose.
About the same time that tbe
Spaniards wore exploring the
northern coast, Capt. Vaucouver
left London, In April; 1791, passed
by New Holland and the Sandwich
Islands sud explored our coast,
oommeuoing at the 40th degree, as
cending as tar north as the Straits
of Fuca and coming out of them
on the 51st degree. He returned lo
Nootka and reconnoitered our
coast well to Monterey.
It was thought once tint the Co
lumbia river might flow across the
continent and be tbe obauuel of
communication between the two
oceans. Bevlllagayedo gave spe
cial Instructions to have that river
accurately explored so as to ascer
tain tbat fact.
The commerce In furs was then
besoming very Important, tbe
Russians and English belug tbe
principal nations trafficking In
tbem, while tbe other nations also
sent their vessels to tbe northern
seas for that purpose. It seems
that the English wished tbe Span
iards to limit themselves to the
territory south from the bay of San
Franolseo and RevillagiyedD ad
vised tbe King to occupy and forti
fy Bodega and the Columbia river,
so as to check all other uattons In
their attempts to come south of
those points.
Narrow Gauge Railroad.
Editor Herald: Thereare con
siderable engineering difficulties
between Los Angeles anil Pasa
dena. But tbe causes of these diffi
culties are among the inducements
to build the road that way. For it
must be remembered that this fairy
land of bosky dells, forest clad
mountain steeps, viue-full ravines
and perpetual spriugs of water, all
close to Los Augeles city, makes a
kind of business for a railroad more
susceptible of indefinite expansion
than that of grain fields aud or
chards. Clifton, tho most broken
territory in the vicinity of Cincin
nati, lias become more valuable
than the equally distaut level al
luvious. The alluvions teem with
orchards und market gardens,
while Clifton, a wild tumble of
peaks uud dells, teems with the
princely homes of millionaires,
swarms with visitors and is tbe ob
jective uf numerous small-weight
railways tbat climb tbe more rug
ged steeps as inclined planes up
which wire cables pull the cars.
Tbe lay of the laud, cummeuolog
at a poiut between Pasadena and
Los Angeles aud extending to the
wash of the Sin Dlmas caflon just
above the Azusa, presents no en
gineering difficulty except at the
wash of the Sau Gabriel. This last
named wash presents the only ex
pensive work between the Arroyo
Seco aud the wash of tbe S»n Dimas
caflon.
'The road, it seems, ought to as
ceud to the level mesa which bor
ders the Arroyo Seco from a point
south of Pasadena clear around into
the valley between Pasadena aud
the mountains. This valley next
to tbe mountains, I think, should
bay. the road, although the people
of Pasadeua may possibly think
otherwise. Tbe broad belt of coun
try between Pasadena aud the
mountains is unsurpassed in the
State, for growiug orauges aud
grapes. Settlement has barely be
gun hen). It will speedily become
the scut of numerous beautiful
homes, und au extensive and profit
able pouiccujture, narrow gauge or
uo narrow gauge. But morespeedy
aud more elaborate development
would tie sure to follow the con
struction of the narrow gauge.
There is a curious generalization
as to the point of the compass toward
which cities and villages grow. I
am gathering facts upon which to
generalize, the teudencies of expan
sion of our Los Angeles near Sierra
communities with respect to the
points of Hie compass. I already
suspect what will be the finding at
the end of the inductive process. I
will now venture to state tbe sus
picion. It Is that while cities
spread toward the west these near
Sierra pomocultural communities
do and ever will spread toward the
north until their northward growth
is abruptly arrested by tbe
unclimabie walls of the Sierras.
There is neither mystery nor any
remarkable acumen involved in
these propositions. Tbey rest upon
known causes among winch the
following are perhaps the principal
ones. Iv the first place the nearer
the mountain the more rain, the
more springs und the greater the
capillary ascension of moisture.
Secondly, the nearer the mountain
the greater the exemption from
frost aud the more complete is the
protection against northers.
Thirdly, the nearer tbe mountain
tho greater the purity and tho less
the humidity of the air, conse
quent upon which, of course, there
is greater salubrity. Fourthly,
the mountains are inexhaustble
fuel st on -houses, game preservers
aud the everlasting open side and
unrestricted free spaces in which
the Daniel Boone instincts tbat
run through universal humanity
may forever range without the em
barrassment of fence, hedge, corner
posts, human habitation or tres
pass laws. There runs not only a
Daniel Boone free wilderness vein
through all humanity lo revel In
wild Sierra solitude and fretdom
but the love of the beautiful uud
the sublime is never absent, but
only asleep in those who dwell ou
horiz >n girt Hats, Which purest
and loftiest emotions have a glori
ous awakening at the beautiful
pedestal ot the sublime Sierras.
Do not assume that lam wan
dering away from the narrow
gauge, All that has been suid of
these Sierra, near attractions serve
to show the necessity for uud the
certainty of the Sierra narrow
trauge railroad of Los Angeles and
San Bernardino couuties.
CENTENNIAL EXPOSITION.
Pasadena some days since held a
meeting uud appointed Mr. Clapp
to superintend the Pasadeua part
ef the Centennial Exposition to
open at the Pavilion on tbe sth of
next month. The well known ca
pabilities of Pasadena to make a
great display, ami the selection of
Mr. Clapp us manager assures a
full and imposing display from
Pasadena. There is a disposition
along the line of the proposed nar
row gauze to make the exhibits at
tbe Pavilion prove the capacities
of the country "to support the road
when built,
