While there is to most minds a fascination

The Ucceiit Elect tyn.
The .See?sh of this Slate arc disposal to
rejoice over the result ol" the recent elec
tions In the Northern States. A mo
ment's reflection will show, tlicin that there
is no cause for it. It can be accounted for
in two ways: First, that all those in the
army aie loyal administration men, leav
ing behind u mnjority of ntiti-adiniuislra-tion
men ; and second, that in many cases
I lie Democratic Congressmen elect, are
Douglas men. and will heartily support the
Ptcsidcnt. When the war broke out, the
great mnjority of the men who volunteered
under thu Hist call were, Douglas men.
Local politicians of the Douglas stripe,
following their great leader, wore the first
to tender their services to 1ho President.
A grc.u majority of the commissioned offi
cers under the llrst call, were l)oimlu
men county politicians, who, calling their
old political companions around them,
filled the ranks with Douglas votes. They
had two Incentives to this: First, the call
of patriotism to defend the old flair; and.
second, the desire to punish the Secesh
l'reekinridgo Democracy for breaking up
the parly and defeating Douglas, whom
they idolized. This is the reason that the
vast majority of the Oencrnls arc Douglas
men. MeClellan went in from the North

On tho nfternoon of the 2lst day of
October last, n small party of us were
wending our way up the Cascade range of
mountains, about fifteen miles south of
Diamond Peak, leaving behind us the Dlaek
Pino Desert of the ICIumntli Lake country,!
and anxious to reach the summit in time
to obtain u view of tint promised laud
viz : Itoguc Iliver Valley. I teaching the
summit aimed at, one of the highest points
or the range, our course was changed by that, by the spring trail, was ITomilcs
an unlooked for obstacle, nnd ono that even j "voiding, "K almost the whole of the
u John Day paity were obliged to go ivlnnmlli desert of black pine and pumice
around. Itelore us. and at our feet, lay
a large lake, encircled on all sides by steep
and nlmost perpendicular bluff banks, fully
as high as that wo were standing upon.
Thu circumference of this lake we could
not estimate at less than twenty-five miles,
and from the banks down to tho water,
not less than three thousand feet. At no
place could wo see the remotest chance of
being able to climb down to the water,
without the aid of long ropes and rope
ladders. Near the south end of the lake
rises n butle island, several hundred feet

Fifty miles from Jacksonville, nnd just
above the junction of the Middle Fork
with the North Fork, the water or the
Middlo Fork makes a plunge down into u
narrow, rocky canyon some 20 feet per
pendicular, and still farther down, the large
volume of water brought down by the
North Fork cuts its way through the solid
rock ami plunges out of sight. Our com
missary department calling loudly for rein-'
lot cements, we were not able to fully ';x-
