Karratlve of Lieut. *Beale's Wagon
Road Expedition from Fort Defi
ance to the Colorado River-
We present our readers, this morning, with
an ontline narrative of Lieut. Reale's explora
tion of the southern wagon route, taken from
tbenote book of Mr. J. 11. Porter, attached to
the scientific corps of the expedition. Lieut.
Beale arrived here on Thursday, from Los An
geles. The objectJcf the expedition, (which is
just completed,) as specified in the written in
structions of the Secretary of War, was to pro
ceed from Philadelphia 'to Indianeia, Texas,
weere the camels had been landed from the
storesbip Supply, Lieut. David Porter, and
from thence to'proceed to Fort Defiance, in
New Mexico, near Santa Fc, and from that
place to commence the survey of the wagon
road through to Colorado River, near the sup
posed mouth of the Mojave.
Lieut.-E. F. Rsale and hi* party arrived at
San Antonio on tho 16th of June. From San
Antonio they proceeded to Camp Verde, on the
erde river, where the camels had been con
veyed, to await his requisition and that ofCapt.
Pope, of the U. S. Topographical Engineers,
who had been deputed by GovefdmcDt to con
struct artesian wells upon tbe-Pecas, in Texas.
He selected twenty-three out of the ninety
camels at that place and three dromedaries.—
Together with the animals were two Greeks, a
Turk and two Arabs, who left him at San Au
tonio, being desirous of returning home.
The party left San Antonio on the 25th of
JuDe; the camels packed with a large portion
of the graiu for ten teams of mules. Thetou
lus, or icgular pack camels, of which there
were seven, arc capable of carrying a load of
one thousand pounds. They passed over the
old wagon road, extending some seven hundred
miles between Sau Antonio and El Paso, and !
reached Alberquerque on the 10th of August.
THE ROUTE THROUGH NEW MEXICO.
Leaving some of the wagons which bad be
come unnecessary to transport the baggage,the
expedition crossed the Kio Grande, and turn
ed towards the Colorado. They crossed the
dry bed of the little Puerto, and proceeded on
the road lying within sight of the river and
among the mountain spurs extending through
New Mexico. They passed through the pueb
lo of Laguna, inhabited by a mixed population
of Indians and New Mexicans. They were
now travelling upon Coronado's route —who, iu
•1530, passed through this country, tho first
■explorer of New Mexico. Continuing upon ;
the road, to the new town of Znni, situated j
about eight miles from the aboriginal ruins of
that name, they passed the Rio Frio, ruoning ;
through a remarkable volcanic basis, of ancient I
formation. They waited, upon the Piscadn,
the arrival of Col. Loring, who was returning
with his command, from the Gila. While the
oxpedition was proceeding to Zuni, Lieut. Beale i
•in company with Col. Loring, made a dctnnur '
towards the northward, iti (Le Navaje country,
•to Port Defiance, a distance of ninety miles, to
procure an escort of United States troops, for
which he had an order from The Secretary of
THE INSCRIPTION HOCK-
Passing over this country, which Mr. Porter j
considers the most beautiful he ever traversed,
and covered ■with almost interminable forests
of noble and lofty pine trees, they arrived, on
the 24th of August, at El More, or the Inscrip
tion llock. This remarkable natural formation
merits a particular description. Emerging j
from the forest which skirts the bases of the I
backbone of the Western Continent, without •
any previous indication of its existence, and in
the midst of an almost exclusively volcauic
couutry, a smooth wall of white sandstone rises
from the grassy plain which spreads away from I
its base, to an altitude of 1000 feet.
At its southeastern base is the spring known
as El Moro. It is wedge-s'uaped, and its sum
mit is crowued by an ancien' aboriginal fortress
evidently the work of the same artisans, whose j
tumuli are visible from Peru to Wisconsin.—
.Sloping from the southwest it an artificial pla
teau, leading to the western entrance of tiro
mountain, which forms a natural corntl, capa
ble of holding at least five thousand head of
animals, and entirely impregnable except by a i
very narrow passage, easily defended and par- j
tially fortified. In this corral grow the lofti- |
est pine trees, whose heads are far below the j
crest of the rock which towers above them.— j
The party from this point proceeded to within
twelve miles of Zani, where they eneamped, 1
and awaited Mr. Beaic'e arrival from Fort De- '
THE ROUTE FROM EL MORO.
He oirived on the 28th, with his escort, and
after treatiug with the Indians for corn, they
started upon Whipple's trail, and encamped
upou a plain covered with splendid gramma
grass. The expedition from this camping place, ]
passed over a comparatively level country, well |
watered, and abounding in fine grass. Ranges
of mountains, of volcanic origin, were visible
in all directions, some of them capped with
enow. This mountainous feature is the pre
vailing topography between Zuni and the Col
orado. They came in sight of 'he Colorado
Cbiquito on the 4th of September, on the 6tb, j
they crossed it without difficulty, The river ;
is a winding, narrow and muddy stream. At
the ford there were only four feet of water. —
The camels from the first made 'he marches I
without fatigue or flagging. They contiuued
their course on the parallel of 35 degrees, j
finding excellent water at convenient intervals ;
and the most luxuriaut blue gramma grass.
AN UNEXPLORED COUNTRY.
The course now lay through an unexplored j
region, presenting the wave line, intersected
by ranges of irregular serrated volcanic moun
tains. They encamped upon a reservoir of
pure water, discovered by the guide, Hevedra, j
to which Lieut. Beale gave the name of King's j
Creek. The trail of 1853, made by Lieut, j
Whipple, being obliterated by time, and also ;
that of Aubrey, Lieut. Bealc selected a road ]
for himself, and thus from tbe point above
mentioned, the travellers, until reaching the
Colorado, were passing over a terra incognita.
Expeditions from the camping place were de
spatched by Lieut. Beale, in various directions,
to examine tbe face of tbe country.
In one of these, led by Lient. Beale himself,
they discovered what was believed to be tho
celebrated canon of Aubrey, described by him
in bis notes. An idea may bo gathered of the
stupendous depth of this great chasm, from tho
fact that standiDg on its precipitous brhfc, a
i ? musket ball discharged, occupied nearly half a
minute in reaching the bottom at its shallowest
point. This was proved by frequent experi
ments. Its width was so great, that a musket
ball, discharged horizontally, fell about a quar
ter of the way across. This chasm appears to
be a vast sink in tbo general level of the coun
try, the result of some ancient volcanic .con
vulsion. They descended to the bottom and
explored it to its mouth. In it they discover
ed the Indian trail to the Mojave villages
EXTRAORDINARY NATURAL FEATURES.
Some peculiar characteiistics in the feature
of this section of country are worthy of remark.
The road extending over mesas resembled more
a wnik of art, like the roads constructed by
the Roman Generals und Napoleon, than natu
ral formations. The palisade formations, on
all hands, loomed up like gigantic fortifications.
Singular to say, the volcanic rock was carpeted
with the most luxuriant blue gramma grass, af
fording food for animals as nutritious as oats.
Only a thin stratum of soil laid between this
and the rock. Specimens of petrifactions of
the most wonderful description, presented them
selves. And there, on the westeru bank of the
Rio dc la Xara, they found a rock, about twen
ty-five feet square, in the heart of which was a
large petrified tree. The fragment was de
tached from the main body, in which the boughs
were distinctly visible. They also found, in
the beginning of their new route, inscriptions
on the roeks, evincing the progression of the
miters from the Ibeagraphic to the Phonetic
character. This argues a very high degree of
cultivation among the ancient inhabitants of
ihese regions, as do'their fortifications.
ARRIVAL AT THE COLORADO RIVER.
The guides haviog proved unworthy of trust
the expedition was preceded by parties detach
ed in search of water, which was invariably
found, showing that, up to this point, the route
is in every way available for emigrant trains, it
being scarcely necessary to double teams in a
single instance. Nothing of consequence oc
curred from ibis point until the arrival of the
expedition at the Colorado river, J which they
gained without difficulty, camping on its banks,
for the first time, on the 19th of October, hav
ing ridden over the country on either side of
ihc route for a consiedcable distant*.
SWIMMING THE CAMELS.
At this place, the camels themselves refuted
some assertions which have been confidently
made of them—that they are unable to swim.
Father Hue, iu his work, describes his deten
tion upon he Yellow river, in < hiriu, on ac
count oi the difficulty of crossing his camels,
for, he says, "the animal cannot swim." The
opinion Las also been supported by many wri
Ou this occasion, Lieut. Bcale's determining
to t-y the experiment, led one of the large (uii
!us to the bank of the river, and had liirn driv
en into the water. As soou as he found him
self out of bis depth, he struck off without hes
itation for the opposite slime, swimming high
sud with perfect rase. The rest of (he train
were crossed in batches of five and six, not one
of them, apparently, Lad the slightest difficulty
in the passage.
A PORTION OF TLIE (iUEAT II FA EH T
Here the travelers found the first sandy coun
try on their route. The grass was poor and
thin, and water at longer intervals than they
had yet found it. They were enabled, howev
er. to procure a sufficient supply, without any
suffering, and continued their course due west,
until they struck the Mojave fiver—a drstimee
of about eighty miles —'hat is to where water
appears flowing in the bed of the river. This
is a northern continuation of the great Ameri
can Desert of New Mexico, but presents less
of the sterile and desolate feature- of the south
ern or main body of the desert, and is infinite
ly preferable to travel over.
A (RIVAL AT LOR ANGLES.
T'nc route now followed the Mojive on its
eastern bank uutil the party reached the Mor
mon road, which they kept, crossing the San
Bernardino Mountains at the Cajon Pass, and
continued tho journey over the well known road
from San Bernarding to Los Angles,* where
they arrived on the 20th of November.
TRIUMPHANT SUCCESS OF THE CAMEL EXPE
The experiment of the eanicls and dromeda
ries has proved a triumphant success. In op
position to the upinious of many United States
officers, they have shown themselves admirably
adapted for traversing the wastes of Western
America. In some these wonderful
an tuahs went a week, and in one, ten days,with
out water —not because it did not exist ou the
route, but from the lack of desire for it, and on
the tenth day the animal drank with compara
tive indifference. They could go, if required,
over two weeks without tasting water. Their
food is of the simplest and coarsest description - ,
they pat, as th*y progress, whatever grows on
the waysile, bending 'heir long necks and
thrusting their heads alike into the narrowesi
crevices for the cactus, or the stunted verdure,
or cropping the leaves from the boughs of the
trees, wilbontin the least retarding their spaed.
Truly they may be called the ships of the des
ert, and, when taken in comparison with mules,
horses or cattle, which require food almost as
legularly as man, they seem adapted by nature
to the novel task to which our government has
now devoted them.
A CABINET OF CURIOSITIES.— For the first
time in the history of this nation, the Cabinet
at Washington is enabled to present to the
conntry the rare spectacle of a conclave of po
litical husksters. Asonisbment is lost in con
tempt while one candidly and coolly reads the
letters of Messrs. Cobb, Brown, Toticey, Cass,
Black etc., liauked by a weak diatribe from
poor Btgler, to the late meeting called and
beld at Philadelphia, to endorse the new posi
tion of the administration in this Kansas swin
dle. Cabinet officers coming down from their
position to bandy epithets, to scold and threat
en and promise and beg before the country; to
disclo.ee at the gatherings of short boys and
shouldt'i-strikers, led by their fuglemen, men of
the "first respectability," the policy of the ad
ministration for the future, to promise what in
tho next week, in the rush of events, they may
not bo able nor willing to perform—this is a
spectacle tit to be wept over by every patriot
in the land.
In tbe face ef facts that are a disgraoe to the
age and land in which we liTe; in the face of
facts disclosed by bitter Democratic partixaug
like Walker setting forth the present and past
system of trrong aud outrage under which sev
en-eighths of tbe people ot Kansas have pa
tiently goffered for years, Mr. Attorney Gon
eral Black has tho hardihood to say ia bis let

Gov. Walker in bis letter of resignation, says
wheu and where the frauds and disfranchise,
nient of the Conveution election occurred, aud
(bat fifteen counties were absolutely disfran
chised. His language is: "These fifteen coun
ties, including many of the oldest organized
counties in the territory, were eutirely disfran
chised, and did not give, by no fault of their
own could not give, a solitary vote for delegates
to that Convention." Attorney Geuerai Black
says: "The delegates were chosen at a fair and
free election, after a full uotioe to all the vo
Was there eve falsification like this!
The Philadelphia JVorth jJmtricnn , in an ex
ceedingly powerful article which our narrow
space forbids us quoting entire, very justly re
"Partizanship, aud not statesmanship, stands
out upon the face of each of these Cabiuet
epistles, as if the word had been printed io
Luge capitals at the head of each. The pur
pose is partizan, aud the argument flippant and
shallow special pleading. The Attorney Gen
eral has a comprehensive term for the people of
Kansas, and for all dissentients from the doc
trines resolved on—the term "Abolitionists."
The Secretary of the Treasury aud the Post
master General, bait a dozeu times each, re
peat the epithet "Black Republicans," as ap
plied to the same classes. The Uabiuct thus
chooses to bandy epithets scarcely tolerable ou
the political rostrum, or in the partizan press.
What good can come of this departure from
dignity, and from the stern path of duty to
which it is right—a right which wi'l be assert
ed—to hold those occupying high places in the
public affairs of the whole people! Those who
write iu this styie from the high offices they
occupy, Blight be rebuked by their own cleri
cal force fot gross impropriety, and a power of
dismissal should somewhere exist, if the prece
dent now set is to be followed."
Mr. J. H. Stritigfellow, who once upon a
time, was considered the biggest and most fe
rocious "border ruffian" iu Kansas, is uow in
Washington, and writes a letter against che
Lecoinpton Constitution,which the Union would
not publish, out which the New York Herald,
another orguu of Mr. Buchanan, does. This
letter closes as follows:
"Iu a tew days after my arrival it was an
nounced that Acting Governor Stanton hud con
vened the Territor.al Legislature in extra ses
sion, a course he had undoubted authority to
pursue, however much I lie policy may be doubt

by 13,000 voters, 0,000 of whom voted for Mr.

remonstrance expressed in the only legal way
they eouid express it, namely, by a vote of the
people under the act of Legislature, with at] the J
penalties for fraudulent voting that could be

These returns include 3,562 votes from pro- j

the real .Pro-Slavery strength in the Territory
does not exceed two thousand.

is divided—Free State, 13; Democrats, 6. Tue

Governor, had received 6,238, aguinst 6,530
for Marshall, Democrat. For (JoDgregs, Par

6,568 for Carr, Democrat.

It is stated from Kansas, that the Territor

The arrest of Heuderson by the Free States
men, heretofore reported by the telegraph, is
explained by the St. Louis Democrat. Hender
son was on his way with a return of several
hundred votes from "Delaware Crossing," a
place having about twenty inhabitants. Some
people, thinking that Calhoun had enough of
such returns already, concluded to capture
Henderson. Whether tbey have "out kis tars

WE RAT lON'S AGAINST CANTON.
[From ttie London Times.
By the present time, probably, Canton has
been attacked and captured. It has been de
termined to make the dispute entirely local.—
Should the Emperor answer the capture of
Canton by the expulsion of the English tra
ders from Shanghai, then, indeed matters will
grow serious; but should he determine that the
Canton Governor and mob have been justly
punished, it is possible that hostilities may be
confined to the operations which were to he
commenced in the south. The British force
seems to be sufficient for the purpose of retri
bution at Canton. "In a few days," says our
correspondent, "we tnay reasonably expect to
have 700 guns and 7,000 men in these waters.
Of the latter we shall be able, probably, to
land 4,000." The "bluejackets" were being
drilled for service on land. We learu that the
French have also uetermiued to resort to hos
tilities against the Chinese. It should he un

"At the last session we were called upon, in

not reduce the tariff in double quick time, there
would be a surplus of ?60,000,00x1 of coiu in
the Sub-Treasury, and it would break every
body. We have passed a tariff bill, but we
lave no money in the Treasury. Is this the |
