THE tOUTl'-HILE DLaCKT.
Twenty years ago the great Ameri
can Desert was the terror of the over
land immigrant. It was written up in
a sensational way in Eastern papers
and in letters to friends. It was im-
Jwssible. tp qo -around it, for if extend
ed from the Colorado to the Cascades.
All the routes that led to the land of
promise crossed it, and it was soon
covered with the bleaching bones of
stock and dotted with human graves.
Numerous disastrous attempts to cross
firths' south -fogpnstrct
most feasible road was the one that
lies close to where the overland rail
road now runs. It is about forty miles
from the lower end of the Humboldt
Sink to the Truckee River, at Wads
worth, and the name, "Forty-Mile
Desert," given to this stretch, lins be
come known the world over. There
is no water fit to drink on the whole
distance, and it is a very hard day's
drive for cattle or a heavily loaded
team. A great many cattle were lost
unnecessarily in the Srst rush to Cal
ifornia by people who got nervous,
and did not know how to manage.
They frequently laid a day or two at
the Humboldt, and started out to
cross the desert in the night. Thfv
then had to keep going all the next
day in the hot sun, and took the worst
of the road when the animals were in
the poorest condition. Large bands of
cattle are frequently driven now, and
losses are very rare. They start out
in the morning and drive leisurely dur
ing the heat of the day, stopping for a
good rest at noon, and in the even
ing, when night comes on, they are
pressed forward, and get in next morn
ing. The road lies through a sandy,
sage-brush plain, extendins several
miles west of the lake, where it strikes
an alkali desert, in the center of which
the railroad has a station, that it ap
propriately calls "Whito" Plains. This
tains. -'Ei'ht-niiies'further isMiragej
Station, -which -raicht servesas"' a ine
mo'rial to" the unfortunates who have
been betrayed from their proper course
by the picture of running water, wav
ing trees, and green fields, that existed
only in tho deceptive air. Near the
middle of 'the journey is a boiling hot
spring at the foot of a mountain, and
large beds of sale lie near, from which
B. F. Leete and the Bonanza mines
put up aud ship large quantities to
market. The deposit has killed all
vegetation for a long distnnce around,
leaving the flat old lake bed as haie
as a floor. Between there and Wads
worth are some very odd formations.
The body of the country seems to be
a light, yellow substance, probably
diatomous, over which He high ridges
of brown hills. The level places are
strewn with heavy rocks of all sizes,
as black as coal. There is no timber
anywhere in sight, and even the sage
brush is of a scanty growth and in
ferior size. On either side aro the
ever monotonous brown mountains,
carved and grooved by centuries of
wear by wind and frost into fringes ot
stony laco. The railroad has made
frequent attempts to get water for its
engines, but without success. They
bored l',300 feet at Hot Springs, but
got only a brackish mixture of liquid
alkali. They haul water in tank cars
for their section men between Hove-
ock's and Wadsworth. and the endues
make the run with one tankful, a dis
tance of 61 miles. They formerly
carried an extra car behind the engine,
with two wooden tanks to draw from;
but new engines have been built, with
tanks that hold 3,700 gallons. They
frequently run 75 miles without stop
ping, and Nick Cole made a hundred
mile run once. It is a very pleasant
comparison for the rich '49er who rides
in the palace car over the ground
where he walked along with sore and
tired feet, urging his oxen out of the
thirsty desert half a lifetime ago.
Gen. J. 0. P"mberton died near
Philadelphia on the 13th of last month.
He was born in that loyal city, of
Pennsylvania parents, but his mar
riage relations and army associations
carried him to the Southern side of the
rebellion. His name will always be
associated with the siege of Vicksburg,
and his stubborn defence of that "iron
fortress of the Mississippi," as the con
federates called it, against the army of
Gen. Grant, and gave the latter his
first great chance.
T11K CO.SDITIO.V OF A UBALTUY UOlat.
No one in the present day is ignor
ant of tho main conditions of a healthy
house namely, that refuse must freely
,pass from it into the sewer, that the
air must not enter the house drains,
that the sewer air "from tho house
drains must not enter the house, that
no liquid from these drains must soak
into the ground under the house, that
the drinking water must be preserved
from contamination, and that air
should be brought into the dwelling
jpgms fromont&idg Tho nbjgfj
proposition to inspect are, in the first
instance, to inform the owner or o.ccu
pier whether these essential conditions
are fulfilled in the case of any particu
lar house or not; and, if they are not
fulfilled, to report to him what altera
tions aro required in order to secure
their fulfillment. Assuming the house
to bo originally in a satisfactory state,
or to be placed in such a state by the
owner determining that the recommen
dations of the inspectors shall be car
ried into effect, the next work of the
society is regular'periodical inspection,
for the purpose of seeing whether this
state is maintained. There is no
mechanical contrivance for the regula
tion of water supply or for the removal
of refuse which can safely be relied up
on to continue perpetually in good
working'order; and 'much disease has
been occasioned, and many valuable
lives lost, by the non-recognition of
this simple and seemingly almost self-
evident proposition. Filters become
choked with the dirt which it is their
function to intercept, and, after a time,
impart instead of arresting it. Pipes
become corroded, traps cease to work,
and constructions of the most admira
ble descriptions are all subject to the
deteriorating effects of time. It is to
guard against the dangers hence aris
ing that provision is made for the in
spection of .the houses of members at
proper intervals, so that th'e failures of
reasonable period, after their occur
rence, and may not be suffered to re
main unknown and unsuspected in the
ordinary invisible parts of dwellings.
We are now able to trace some dis
ease of a very gra e character, such,
for example, as typhoid fever, to de
fective household sanitation. A very
noticeable part of the consequences
arising from living in an unwholesome
house is a general lowering of tho tone
of body and mind,, with such results as
indigestion, depressing of spirits, bad
temper, and the like; all liable to cul
minate in impaired power of resistance
to the actual causes of disease or to
the effects of injury. S. F. Farmer.
Jul Dues front the Government.
Long before the Mexican war Capt.
James Biidger, under tho auspices of
tho Governor of Lower California, and
at his instance, emigrated with a num
ber of families into Green River valley,
Utah; and for protection built an im
pregnable fort of cement nnd solid ma
sonry at a cost of 20,000. When the
United States army went out there on
tho memorable Utah war expedition
against the Mormons, it sought shelter
in Fort Bridger from the inhospitable
winter, without which the soldiers
might have perished like tho army of
Napoleon on its retreat from Moscow.
Then tho government rented of Capt.
Bridger his fort, outhouses, fields, etc.,
for ten years at SGOO per annum, and
at the end of ten years had the priv
ilege of purchasing it when he acquired
title to the same. It will be under
stood that his arrangements were to ac
quire title from the Mexicun govern
ment, under whose auspices he went
there. The country then belonged to
that republic. But after the Mexican
war it-was acquired by treaty and the
United States government became
possessed of it, and Capt. Rridger
could not complete his title to three
leagues square as per agreement with
the Mexican authorities. When we
acquired Louisiana and Florida we re
spected the French and Spanish rights.
Those of Captain Bridger were entirely
disregarded, reversing an established
rule of international law. The gov
ernment took charge of Fort Bridger
in 1857 and has retained it ever since,
and never paid Capt. Bridger a cent
an outrage which is everything but
flattering to our army and government.
A bill is now ppnding in Congress for
his relief, but is contesU-d by the gov
ernment. If justice is obtained it will
be after a long and severe struggle.
TOM 1U1.NE AND JOH.1 WLSLKY.
J&Now let us placo over against each
other Paine and Wesley. Both were
Englishmen, both lived in this country,
both have exerted an influence on our
national life. Which is the benefac
tor! Wesley was born in 1703; Paino
was born in 1737. Paine, a soldier of
fortune, was an Englishman, an Amer
ican, a Frenchman, as revolution and
fortune promised the largest reward.
He was a patriot of the typo of th
"Wandering Jew." Ho is remembered
-Otte-NaUarm Justsry because ol th
eminence of his badness. His notority
is due to the boldness of his infidelity,
which has thrown a historical glamour
about his name. He is remembered
just as are Judas and Andre and Ar
nold. His infidelity placed him in bold
contrast with the Christian fathers of
our Republic. And were it not for
this he would to-day be forgotten, as
are hundreds of others identified with
our Revolution. He was a vigorous
writer, but gave to the world no mw
and beneficent thought His "Rights
of Man, written as a reply to Burke's
"Reflections on the French Revolu
tion," is but a restatement of other
men's thoughts, and his "Age of Rea
son" is but a rehash of the sayincs of
other infidels, and has not the merit of
a new idea, but has the1 'demerit of
ignorance and abscenity. What has
been tho effect of his life and works?
What great charity did ha originate?
What great deed merits for him the
gratitude of a nation? He was re
warded by the country far beyond his
merits, and spent what he recoived in
a dissolute old age. Is he a model for
the young men of America?
But let us recall the character, th
life, and the elevating influence of
Wesley, the ripe scholar, the fruitful
writer, a true phikntrophist. the ami-
ble Christian. Paine died in 1809;
Wesley died in 1791. ,Behold the re-
er in some hippodrome all the infidVLi,
an the iree-lovers, all the communists,
with an outside crowd of all who wish
Christianity false, who despise tho
marriage tie, who pour contempt on
law and order, who demand license in
stead of liberty, and you have tha
spiritual progeny which Paine has bo-
gotten. On the other hand, follow the
sun in his golden course through tho
heaens, and wherever he shines there
are the followers of Wesley in schools
of learning, bouses of mercy, halls of
justice, marts of commerce, temples of
piety, educating tho ignorant, feedine
uio nungry, reforming the drunkard,
lifting up the fallen, cheering tho dis
consolate, giving permanancs to order,
energy to law, dignity to Duldic senti
ment, stabililty to government, value
to property, morality and piety to tho
people. Let the ten millions of Wes
ley's followers in this country, pious,
cultured, wealthy, tell the benevolenc
of his life aud character. Dr. J. P.
The Seattle Intelligencer is authority
for the statement that there is a strong
sentiment in British Columbia in favor
of annexation to the United States.
The reasons assigned for this desire
are that by annexation th people of
the province would save about half a
million a year now paid out for duties
on articles imported from the United
States, and that the value of their coal
exports is diminished 150,000 a year
by the payment of American duties.
Our tariff also practically excludes
them from our lumber and fish market,
making their immense supplies unavail
able. The province has a reprpsenta
tive in London laying its grievances
before the home Government, but the
people have very little hope of success.
The picture drawn by the Intelligencer
certainly conves the impression that
British Columbia would benefit vastly
by coming into the Union, and the
Union would be no sufferer.

ard" on Klamath Lake is now engagsd
