Chairman Light House Board,Washington, D.C.

SIR:

In connexion with the question of enlarging the Light house Reservation at Yaquina Bay, I would respectfully call your attention to the fact that the deed calls for about 36 acres of land, while the laws of Oregon (act approved Octo 29th 1870) provide for the purchase by the United States of only 20 acres in one tract. The cession of jurisdiction is certainly limited to 20 acres even if the government purchases more. I would respectfully inquire if 20 acres should not be surveyed and a description of such tract recorded in order to comply with the statute?

Very respectfully,Your obedient servant,[Henry M. Robert]

The Chief of Engineers, U.S. Army Washington, D.C.

Sir:- I have the honor to submit the following report as to the present status of Yaquina Harbor, and as to whether the harbor improvements have been completed, and warranted the establishment of a light there. Yaquina Bay affords ample harbor accommodation; but at present vessels of deep draught cannot enter, as there is only about 12 feet depth of water over the bar, in the deepest channel, at low-water. The average range of tide is about 7 feet. There is little or nothing in the way of local resources to build up a commerce of any extent; but as an outlet to an important railroad, the harbor is rapidly growing in importance. Its future growth will depend much upon the improvement of the entrance to the harbor, and also upon the extension of the railroad to a connection with a trans continental line. At present, almost the only vessels entering and leaving the port are the passenger steamers running from Yaquina City to San Francisco. A jetty nearly 3,000 feet long has been constructed by the government, on the south side of the entrance. The results thus
