The distance from Seattle to Vietoii*. is
135 utiles. Piob.ibly u« more enchanting

cun linen t oi along h-r almost limitless
stretch of coast line. The mule taken is

ch nml of Admiralty Iclet, and a won
derfully tine view ot tlie Souud and shore
indentations is afforded.
The writer had occasion to in ike the
trip Horn Seattle t* Victoria, end can
spu.ik imm personal knowledg ol the un
surpassed beauty, not unmixed with cer
tain elements ol grandeur, ol sea, shore,
i,lands and distant mountain*. At nil e

lett Seattle, bound lor Victoria. A large
number ol passenger* imbarked lor the
delightful trip. Amid the noisy bustle
incident to the departure ol tbe steamer,
tue waving of hamikurchiels and the hasty
exchange of mutual congratulations.
Che lust whistle was shrilly • umled.
Lines were hastily cast off, the steamer
moved slowly uway from the whan,
»wuag round aud headed tor the entrance,,
of Admiralty Inlet. Over the broad ex
panse oi the -inland sea” hung an opaque
cloud ot log. This log bank, added to a
moonless and starless night, rendered the
prevailing darkness almost palpable
Obp.-cls could not lie sighted two lengths
of the steamer. Later the fog bank lifted
from the face of the water, aud then the
pde *tars peeped in a hall hesitating way
through the misty curtain of the night.
Wearied by the fatigue of travel, the
excitement ol the shifting scenes, and
lulled by the dull grinding of the uiachin
cry and the ceascles- phishing of the
wheels, the passengers were soon wander
ing through the shadowy realm* of dream
land. Through the mist nod darkness
the noble steamer sped rapidly on in her
walerly course. Here and there, a* she
passed down tbe -Great Mediterranean of
America,” bright friendly gleam* shot ath
wart tha gloom, sent forth from light sta
tions located along th* shores at safe and
convenient intervals. Occasionally ths
dismal moan from tha fog-whistle came
booming far over the dreary watery waste.
To these sights and sounds the eyes and
ears of the slumbering passengers were
sealed, All on board slept but the pilot,
the quartermaster, aud the man eu the
Before the gray dawn shone dimly over
the distant shon-s ol the Sound the steam*
er had emerged from the narrow confines
of the Inlet, and was plowing her way
across the broader stretch ol son known as
the Straits of Juan <to Fur*. By ones and
twos ftt first, and soon liy hulf-dozons, tin*
passengers made a (frowsy appearance on
the »3«ok. when it became known we hat)

Behind us stretched the broad wake ol
the steamer, the waves duncipg merrily
and spa.kling iu the sou a wide h«lj
of gleaming sapphius. Farther away ap
peared tlie mouth or entrance of Admiral
ty Inlet, through which wo had steanud
less than au hour before. Southward ol
the entrance could plainly bo discerned
Point Wilson, Middle Point, Protection
Island, Cape George, and the tntrunce to
Puri Discovery. Abreast, New Dungeons*
appeared in full, unobstructed view. Far
above the dim and shadowy shore line
rose the lofty and snowier*sled peak of
Mount Cusstra, towering neatly 4000 (eel

over the ssn.
WUiU troksing the Straits, and just bc
torc tbe •teamcr eutcrad Victoria harbor,
a splendid view was caught ot thv Hi

stretched tho long, wide channel, unfit

seeming to converge us they receded with
a sinuous course toward the mouth ut the
Strait. Dimmer and dimmer and leas
distinct grew th«se receding lines, until
the grayish land and greenish-blue waters
genii y mingled and were lost in each
other. Beyond these softly lading minks
of laud stretched the limitless expanse
of sea. With its feeble and uncertain vis.
ion the bumau eye was scanning tbo east
ern rim of the mighty Pacific ocean.
A steam collinr waa just passing out,
with • oargo •( coat from Beattie or TV

long, narrow, black bull bad |iarttatly

acmbled a slender apeak, from which
trailed a dark banner ot smoko. Several
teasels were entering, beating slowly
down under a gentle wind, the rggii.g
and bulls bearing a dim, phantom aspect.
A'tei d of our ateamar, aud just ofl llic en

large ships rode at anchor, swinging list,
lesaly with the sluggish title, with their
suds flapping lazily in the morning breeze.
