SACRAMB.VI-O, Jan. 23.— The heaviest snowstorm that has prevailed this winter is now raging in the mountains between Shady Run and Emigrant Cap. Drift after drift is piling up on the rajlrond track and the plows are pulling and blowing with might aad main in order to clear a way for the eastern mail, which is slowly and cautiously threading its way over the mountains, JJ-juiry 1'nuvs D4>fl,Ml. Xo soouer is one drift tossed aside by the powerful rotary plows than another forms. Sometimes the snow, lifted by the force of the galu, is carried over the embankments and forms immense drifts between the laboring plow and the struggling train. Then the plow must fight, its way tlirough the snow to where it can turn and then fight its way back again to rescue the train from the increasing drifts. Mr TropK Out of SlKlit. Although the storm is general from Colfax toTruckee, its center is between Blue Canyon and Emigrant Gap. Tho mountains which rise almost perpendicularly on the north side of the track are covered with fir trees, some of which. 00 feet high, barely show their lips protruding through the snow. These mountains in. phices rise precipitously from the road, and the immense body of snow covering them is in constant danger of sliding. Jf it once starts nothing can check its downfall, and a calamity similar to that which happened on the Shasta division Tuesday is momentarily expected on the roads cast of this citv. or A<1dl»tm> DtKfiuci.
