Come with me, in imagination, back to the Seattle of eady 1861,
just in time for the last news of 1860 to have reached us from the
populous East. This news has been long in coming, for the planned
Pacific Telegraph will not reach the Coast until later this year. But
now we have before us a New York newspaper of December 31, 1860.
