OFFICE—In Barnes's building, corner of Main and First streets, near the steamboat landing. Beport of the Cowlitz Valley Boad Viewer* Unsolicited, we the undersigned, have ex amined the above route for a road across the Cascade mountains, via the Cowlitz Pass, and beg leave to make the following report: We left Mr. Barton'?, on the east end of Cowlitz prairie, and traveled N. of E. until we struck the Cowlitz river, distance 18 miles. The land we passed over is rolling, with fir timber, end numerous prairies containing from two to five hundred acres each, all level good arable land, covered with high fern. At this point we crossed the Cowlitz river, requiring hut very little work to make a good road. Wo crossed in canoes and swam our horses over. We were told that there was a very good ford three miles below, but did not go to see it. Here we came to the Klikatat prairie, which is about three miles long. From this \ point we tsaveled about tun same course upon which we started out, until we struck the Cow litz river near where Skunk creek puts in— distanctt from Klikatat prairie, seven miles. About one-half of this distance is through an oil burn, the remainder of the way through a high, level piece of excellent vine maple land, requiring but little work to make a road until we come to the river. There some grading would be necessary, which could be easily done, there bting no rock. From this point (Skunk creek) until wo reached the falls, distant- 22 miles, the route lies through brush bottom and open burns, quite level excepting one point of land that comes down to the river, which would reqniie grading, not exceeding, however, & fourth of a mile on each side. Tho cost would be light—perhaps SIOO on each side—no rock, the ground looking like burnt or rotten quartz and ashes. From the falls we had to go up a hill of half a mile, but it can be as cended by an easy grade. From there we have to descend the same distance to the south fork of the Cowlitz river. The road could go around this hill and reduce the hight but increase the expenses, which would not be much either way when compared with the Nisqually route. From the falls to the river, two miles, crossing good; thence from the south to the north fork one mile, land rolling. From this to Ce-cum-is, or maple prairie, dis tant 18 miles, the land is level, excepting two small hills which would require but little work more than the removal of the logs. The re mainder of the road is through brush bottoms. There are three small streams the banks of which would require some grading. From Maple prairie to Kiouas ranch, a distance of five miles, the route about the same, no hills- Eight miles from here is a big cieek, crossing good. Five miles from here we crossed the Cowlitz river and struck the Nisqually route, five miles above the Indian camp. The route passes through good arable land, nearly all of which could be cultivated. 1 hat above the falls is better adapted to grass, on account of the frosts. From where we inter sect the Nisqnally route, on the other side of the Casrade mountains, our route would have to be the same, and we suppose it to be good from the report of the viewers of that route. The distance from Cowlita prairie to where the routes intersect is only 89 miles, and can by made a good wagon road all the way for •30 or lesa per mile, on an average; with plenty of grass, wood and water to aupplj any number of immigrant teams.

Letter from Hew Dnngcness. New Di'Wgexem, July Ifti, I s *!! Kd. Stasi>ari»: ItrarSir: In ihe i»»ue of the Pacific Irihuur of July 1 titVi an nrticlt' appears that makes it necessary for ine to ask the privilege of trespassing still further upon vour columns, to correct crrns that the letter of "Skookum" b«a shed broadcast. •' Skookum" says '• that soinc people be lieve that John Tucker was shut by Indian* to retaliate for the munler of Lord Jim." This statement is untrue, for noliody believes any thing of the kind. Was it Indians that en deavored upon two occasions just previous to the murder io tnke his life ? Was it Indians that sent him away, nnd told hiin that they would take his life if he ever came back f Do Indians shoot rifle balls and with patching upon them ? I)o Indians, when tin ygo on their marauding expeditions carry with tlicui bundles of bread made from hop-yeast, »n.l fresh-made bulter and salt beef, like that found in the bed in which *hu assassins lay when they shot their victim ? "Skookum" says, "the resp.-ctable citi zens of Claim, feeling they were in danger of losing their lives without a moment's warn ing, have formed themselves into a vigilance committee," etc., etc. Whodoes " Skookum" call the respectable citizens of Claim I Is it those who kidnap inoffensive people and send them out of the United States, without nnv form of law or showing of justice 'I Is it those that lie in ambush to pounce upon the un armed and defenceless and take their lives without any provocation I Now who has been in such danger of losing their lives without notico ? I have never heard of anyone ever being threatened by any ono of the parti"B exiled, and during that they have resided in the county the records of the courts do not show that any violence has ceen done by them to anyone. This feeling of fear from these men, is all trumped up and imaginary. It ever had an existence. " Skookum" says " that tlic3e men were English men-of-war's men," ami infers that they were consequently not entitled to the pro tection of our laws. Now, sir, I have yet to learu that there is any disgrace to he attached to any person on account of his nativity, or that when aliens COMIC here and take as they do an oath, without any mental reservation, to support the Government and laws of the country, that they are not entitled to the jiro pection that the Government is bound to give to the humblest of its people. Hut " Skookum" says that " the civil law has proved a failure to bring the scoundrel," meaning Tucker, "to justice." If Tinker committed faults and errors, let ihem that have never themselves erred accuse him. Those that have accomplished his death should not slander him after they have silenced his tongue from replying to them. Such conduit is cow ardly in the extreme, and besides, the charge is untrue. The only prosecution there ever was against any of these p irties was a charge of petit larceny against Tucker and Harry Mai tin, of which they were both convicted at the September term of the District Court, at Fort Townsend, and sentenced to the county jail for thirty days. After their term of im prisonment had expired, they both pledged themselves to live honest and upright lives, and I challenge "Skookum," or any of these pretended vigilants, to show that they have not done so. And more, two of the men who were forced to leave their homes by this mob, have never been publicly accused of any crime, nor can any be fixed upon them, and I assert without fear of successful contradiction, that Adams and Goold were both of them entirely innocent of any crime. Now Mr. " Skookum," you say you Are a «« Union man," and have " voted the Union ticket for two years past," and that you nre a " member of this vigilance committee." Y>u may have so voted, but it must have been Jeff. Davis's union ticket, or otherwise you do not act publicly with the committee, for there is no man who has voted the Uniou ticket among the rioters. " Skookum" says further that " they were assured protection by a few who were no bet ter than themselves." Now it is quite a com mon style of argument to say that these ex iled men were " thieves," and those that do not approve of banishing them or taking their lives are bad as thieves, but it will hardly frighten anyone whoso sympathy would bo worth having. Now as regards the " protec tion," " Skookum" must know that it is false, as it is a patent and well-known fi.ct that he was told by influential members of the mob that he could com.* back aud get his little pro- Eerty, and he came here accordingly thinking e was safe. " Skookum," let me give you a little ad vice on this subject of letter-writing. It is this: never assail a large community of your fellows through the medium of the press with out affixing your real name to your produc tions, as it looks bad, and cowardly, especial ly when you are vindicating those fifty-four riflemen, of whom you claim to be a member, and the next time the public has the p!eaaure of being enlightened by your pen. let every one know who writes, and then the people will know better how much weight to give your statements. Do not fancy that you have been able to keep up your incognito, for let me assure you that you are kuown. and it is thought this name of " Skookum" is all bluff, M yon are known to be the wrest coward in the whole community. Your satements also it imp you as t falsifier of the truth. If you have a spark of manhood left, you will com« oat and acknowledge your real name and make good if you can the slaudcra you have pub lished. Boir3 of ua, Mr. "Skookum," area little difiwtntly situated from yourself. We have OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 13, 1864. here the lal>nr of ten years of our live*, a;.d intend that here are permanently our hotnrs. while you can put your blankets upon your back and find anywhere as good an altode as you have here. Itesides, if you were to leave, you would have none to regret your depar ture, and little would ;t matter to you how much slaughter aud rapine you would lea\ c behind von. " Skookum" cnnclmlcs hi* letter with this appeal: "Will the community sustain the citizens of Claim county i" Now that is the only pood thing in the whole letter, and the people have now the opportunity of showing by their sympathy whether they sustain the citizens of Claim county and the laws of Wash ington Territory, or whether they sustain an armed inob who override all law and trample under foot every principle of humanity and justice. If men should be shot down clan destinely for crime here in this county, should it not be done elsewhere in the Territory as well. If, as they say, the laws have not been enforced heretofore, it is their own fault, and they are complaining of their own wrong, as the whole machinery of the county is now and has been in the bauds of niembcrsof this com mittee; for when the people have voted them out of Iho county offices, they have managed to hold on by throwing out election returns, and thereby giving themselves a longer lease of power. They know that unless they can obtain the sympathies of the people of the Territory with them they cannot rule here. Every man ought to ask himself wnether he would be willing that his immediate neighborhood shall be governed by a mob or not, and if not do not force upon others what you would not have yourselves. Respectfully yours, C. M. HRADSUAW. We publish the following letter from lion. J. J. McGilvra, without being under stood as endorsing the reflections upon Gen. Alvord's ability. We have no desire to have him relieved from tlu> command of this dis trict : VANCOUVER, W.T., July 30, 18f»l. En. STANDARD : Sir: As Gen. Alvnrd and friends seem to ho much exercised aliout the proposition made last Winter at Washing ton to relieve him from the command of this district, I propose to biiclly statu the facts in relation to that matter. Soon after I arrived in Washington, and upon consultation with Conness and Mcßridc, (Ilnrding and Nesmith not then being in the city,) it was determined to cfl'cct. if possible, a radical change in military affairs on this coast. With this view, the President and Secreta ry ot War were consulted, and the rerommeiiri ationx marie in the main adopted. It was proposed to relievo Alvord in particular, be cause although loyal, and in the main well meaning, he was without tlio capacity, vigor, or decision requisite. Ne-imith and Harding, when they arrived, both concurred with us, and llardiug. as 1 ;nn told by Secretary Stanton, called at the War Department, and in behalf of Nesmith and himself, consented to the removal of Alvord. The only difficulty was to get a suitable man for the place that the Government could spare from the field. Gen. ltussell was named, but Stanton said ho could not spare him, and would not exchange him for n dozen Alvords. Alvord may not be relieved, but if not it will be because better men nre more needed at tlie seat of war. I am yours truly, J. ,F.

[PtBLic —No. 67.] An »n to regulate the admeasurement of tosnage of ships and vessels of the United States. IU it enacted by the Senate and House of lirpretentatiee* of the United State* of America in Congress assembled, That every ship or vessel built within the United States, or that may be owned by a citizen or citizens thereof, on or after the first dty of January, eighteen hundred end sixty-fire, shall be measured and registered in the man ner hereinafter provided; also every ship or vessel that is now owned by a citizen or citizens of the United States shall be remensured and reregistered upon her arrival after said day at a port of entry in the United States, and prior to her departure therefrom, in the same manner as hereinafter described: Provided, That any ship or vessel built within the United States after the passage of this act may be measured and registered in the manner herein provided. Sec. 2. And be it further enacted, That the register of every vessel shall express her length and breadth, together with her depth, and the hight under the third or spar deck, which shall be ascertained in the following manner: The tonnage deck, in vessels having three or more decks to the hull, shall be the second deck from below; in all other cases the upper deck of the hull is to be the ton nage deck. The length from the forepart of the outer planking, on the side of the stem, to the uftcrpart of the main stern-post of screw steamers, and to the afterpart of the rudder post of all other vessels measured on the top of the tonnage deck, shall be ac counted the vessel's length. The breadth of the broadest part on the outside of the vessel shall be accounted the vessel's breadth of beam. A measure from the underside of ton nage deck plank, amidships, to the ceiling of the hold (average thickness) shall be ac counted the depth of hold. If the vessel has a third deck, then the bight from the top of the tonnage-deck plank to the under side of the upper-deck plank shall be accounted as the hight under the spar deck. All measure ment to be taken in feet and fractions of feet; and nil fractions of feet shall be expressed in decimals. SEC. 3. And he it further enacted, That the register tonnage of a vessel shall be her entire internal cubical capacity in tons of one hundred cubic feet each, to be ascertained as follows: Measure the length of the vessel in a straight lir.e along the upper side of the tonnage deck, from the inside of the inner plank, (average thicknes,) at the side of the stem to the inside of the plnnk on the stern timbers, (average thickness,) deducting from this length what is due to the lake of the stearn-tiinbcr in the thickness of the deck, and also what is due to the rake of the stern timbei in one-third of the round of the beam ; divide the length so taken into the number of equal jiavts required by the following table, according to the class in such table to which the vessel belongs : Cl iss I.—Vessels of which the tonnage length according to the above measurement is fifty feet or under, inio six equal parts. C'lnss 2.—Vessels of which the tonnage length according to the above measurement is above fifty feet, and not exceeding one hun dred feet long, into eight equal parts. Class 3. —Vessels of which the tonnage length according to the above measurement is above one hundred feet long, and not ex ceeding one hundred and fifty feet long, into ten equal parts. Class 4.—Vessels of which the tonnage length according to the above measurement is above one hundred and fifty feet, and not exceeding two hundred feet long, twelve equal parts. Class s.— Vessels of which the tonnage length according to the above measurement is above two hundred feet, and not exceeding two hundred and fifty feet long. Into fourteen equal parts. Class 6. —Vessels of which the tonnage length according to the above measurement is above two hundred and fifty feet long, into sixteen equal parts. Then, the hold being sufficiently cleared to admit of the required depths and breadths being properly taken, find the traverse area of such vessels at each point of division of the length as follows: Measure the depth at each point of ion from a point at a distance of one-third of the round of the beam below such deck, or, in case of a break, below a line stretched in continuation thereof, to the upper side of the tloor timber, at the inside of the limber strakc, after deducting the average thickness of the ceiling, which is between the bile planks and limber strakc: then, if tha depth at the midship division oithe length do not exceed sixteen feet, divide each depth into fonr equal parts; then measure the inside hntisoolal breadth, at each ot the three nointa d ditis ion, and also at the upper ana lower pointa of the depth, extending each meaanrcment to the average thickness of tk at part of the celling which is between the pointa of measure ment ; number these breadths from above, (numbering the upper breadth one, and so on down to the lowest breadth;) multiply the second and fourth by four, and the third by two; sild tlie«e products together, and to the sum arid the first breadth and the last, or fifth; multiply the quantity thna obtained by one-thired of the common interval betweeo TAIII.R OF CLASSES. the breadths, and the prod art shall be tmmmd the transverse area; hat if the midship depth exceede sixteen feet, divide each depth into six enual parts, instead of four, and measure, as before directed, the horisoatal breadths at the five points of division, and also at the upper and lower points of the depth ; number tuem from above as before; multiply the the second, fourth, and sixth, by four, aad the third and fifth by two; add these pro ducts together, and to the sum add the first breadth and the last, or seventh; multiply the quantities thus obtsined by one-third of the common inte[r]val between the breadths, and the product shall be deemed the trans verse area. Having thns ascertained the transverse area at each point of division of the vessel, as required above, proceed to ascrtain the register tonnage of the vessel in the following manner: Number the areas successinely one, two, three, &c., number one being at the extreme limit of the length at the bow, and the last number at the extreme limit of the length at the stern; then whether the length be divided according to table, into six or sixteen parts, as in classes one and six, or any intermediate number, as in classes two, three, four, and five, multiply the second, and every even numbered area, by four, and tbe third and every odd-numbered area (except the first and last) by two; add these products to gether, and to the sum add the first and last, if they yield anything; multiply the quan tities thns obtained by one-third of th« com mon interval between the areas, and the pro duct will be the cubical contents of tbe space under the tonnage deck; divide this product by one hundred, and the quotient, being the tonnage under the tonnage deck, shall be deemed to be the register tonnage of the ves sel, subject to the additions hereinafter men tioned. If there be a break, a poop, or any other permanent, closed in space on the upper decks, on the spar deck, available for cargo, or stores, or for the berthing or accommoda tion of passengers or crew, the tonnage of such space shall be ascertained as follows : Measure tho internal mean length of such space in feet, and divide it into an even num ber of equal parts of which the distance asun der shall be most nearly equal to those into which the length of the tonnage deck has been divided; measure at the middle of its height the inside breadths, namely, one at each end and at each of the points of division, numbering them successively one, two three, &c.; then to the sum of the end breadths add four times the sum of the even-numbered breadths and twice the sum of the odd-num bered breadths, except the first and last, and multiply tho whole sum by one-third of the common interval between the breadths; the product will give the mean horizontal area of such spare; then measure the mean hight between the plank of the decks, and multi ply by it the mean horizontal area; divide the product by one hundred, and the quo tient shall be added to the tonnage under the tonnage decks, ascertained as aforesaid. If a vessels has a third deck, or spar deok, the tonnage of the space between it and the tonnage deck shall be ascertained as follows: Measure in feet the inside length of the space, at the middle of its height, from the plank at the side of the stem, to the plank on the timbers at tho stern, and divide the length into the same number of equal parts into which tho length of the tonnage deck is divided; mcdsure (also at the middle of its height) the inside breadth of the space at each of the points of division, also the breadth of the steam and the breadth at tho stern; number them successively one, two, three and soforth, commencing at the stem; multiply the second, and all other even numbered breadths (except the first and last) by two; to the sum of these products add thn first and last breadths, multiply the whole sum by one-third of the common interval between the breadths, and the reßult will give, in superfi cial feet, the mean horizontal are* of such space; measure the mean height betWeeu the plank of the two decks, and multiply by it the mean horizontal area, and the product will bo the cubical contents of the snace; divide this product by one hundred, and the qnotcnt shall be deemed to be the tonnage of such space, and shall be added to the other tonnage of the vessel, ascertained as afore said. And if the vessel has more than three decks, the tonnage of each space between decks, above the tonnage deck, shall be se ver* II v ascertained in the manner above des cribed, and shall be added to the tonnage of the vessel, ascertained as aforesaid. In ascertaining the tonnage of open Teaaela the upper edge of the upper strake is to form the boundary line of measurement, and the depth shall be taken from an atliwartship line, extending from epper edge of aaid strake at each division of the length. The register of the vessel shall expreas the number of decks, the tonnage under the ton nage deck, that of the between decks, above the tonnage deck; also that of the poop OT other enclosed space above the deck, each separately. In every registered United States ship or veasel the number denoting the total registered tonnage shall be deeply carved or otherwise permanently marked on her nil beam, and ahall be so continued; and if it at any time ceaae to be so continued sack ves sel shall no longer be recogniasd as a regis tered United States vessel. Sec. 4. Ami fc it Jkrtkrr enacted, That the charge fur the measurement of tonnage end certifying the same shall not exeosdtne sum of one dollar end fifty cent* for each traversed section under tho tonnage deck; sad the son of thee ie'lin far n. assuring each betweea deck*above ike lomp Ml aad tbe ita of uae dollar aad My carta far each poop, or cloaed-in aam available far cans or atoraa, ar for ibe berthing or aaoa»- modalion of paaatf ita. or cgewa aal craw above tbe upper or spar deck.
