PROGRESS OF THE NORTHERN TELEGRAPH EXTENSION. — The Oregonian, May 24th, says:
Capt. Conway, of the Collins Telegraph Company, arrived here last evening. He reports that the telegraph poles are cut to Cook's Ferry, on Thompson river, and the work still progressing. 100 miles of wire with insulators will be sent forward on Friday, and within fifteen days thereafter the first link in the great chain of improvement will have been completed to Yale, and that town will be in instantaneous communication with other parts of the continent. On the mail steamer, which will be due to-morrow, are Messrs. Pope and Kennicott, engineers of the Collins Line, with a gang of thirty experienced explorers, who will at once proceed to explore the sister colony for a practical route to Sitka. R. R. Haines, of the State Telegraph Company, yesterday departed for San Francisco to report as to the state of the line here.
