** ssh to copy/ftp files with compress

hi,
  can someone give example for ssh to copy/ftp files with compress across 
servers. i did find some eg on net 

scp [-Cr] /some/file [ more ... ] host.name:/destination/file
and -C is for compress - will this use compress? is there a way to use gzip and 
tell degree of compress. any other suggestion.our network is very slow. thanks.
