j O, Memory, be sweet to me
Take, take all else, at will.
So thou but leave me safe and sound,
Without a token my heart to wound,
The little house on the hill !
Take all of her best from east to west,
So thou but leave me still,
The chamber where in tie starry Ih'ht.
I used to lie awake at night,
And list to the whippowil.
j Take violet-bed, and rose-tree red,
And the purple Hags by the mill,
The meadow gay and the garden-ground,
But leave, O, leave me safe and sound,
The little house on the bill !
The daisy lane, and the dove's low plane,
And the cuckoo's tender bill,
Take one and all, but leave the dreams
That turned the rafters to golden beams,
Iu the little house on the hill I
The gables brown, they have tun: bled down,
And dry is the brook by the mid;
The sheets I used with care to keep
Have wrapped my dead for the last Iciig
In the valley low and
j But memory, be sweet to me,
And build the walls at will,
i Of the chamber where 1 used to mark,
j So softly rippling over the dark,
The song of the whippowil !
I Ah, Memory, he sweet to me!
i All other fountains chill,
: But leave that song so weird and wild,
! Dear as its life to the heart of a child,
Iu the httle house on the hill.

to mention all loaded into a strong
two horse wagon (except the pony.)
We also provided ourselves with
guns, ammunition, fishing tackles, and
two or three bottles filled with water,
as we were informed that it was a
dry season in the mountains. Well,
we started off in high glee, the writer
on Cayuse charger and the remainder
of the party in wagon. The follow

Passed over Wiley Mountain and

Here, as soon as w5 bad 'Mnrncd 1

on,, all uidied firi.insly dowii the
hill to iret a taste of the famous i
u Elixir of Life," which rushes out i
from the rocky banks of the classic
Santi.im. First one and then an
other of I he party took the cup, dip
ped up the water, took a mouthful,
elevated their proboscises at au r.ngle
of 13, rolh-d their optical orbs in
wild frcr.v, twisted their froiitis
picceb into horrible contortions, and
with a desperate gulp that almost
seen.sd te burst their guzzles spit
it eut ! The ,; truck" has a sort of
taste of sal soda, a twang of tartaric
acid, mixed with coal oil and bad gin,
and flavored with sage hen syrup and
onion-sauce. We expect it is a
healthful drink we didn't patronize
it. sullieiently long to determine.
That iitidit we encamped five miles
above the ' Elixir," on the shores (if
the murmuring Sanliam. In the
night save- a bear, or thought we did;
but as limiting bear wasn't our mis
sion we let 'or rip. (M. B. This
bear may have been a black stump,
as the next morning we observed one
standing where Bruin stood the night
After passing Upper Soda, where
is situated some mere " Elixir," and
coming to a steep descent in the road,
proceeded to rough lock wagon, w hen
discovered that the tire was off the
wheel which the lock-chain went on;
tvo of the party started back the
road iu search of tire, which they
found four miles back, at one of the
crossings of the river, cut apart by a
reck. Took it up to wagon, laid it
on the ground, built a log-heap fire
over the broken place and attempted
to get a " welding heat" on it. It
was midday, and sun was awful hot;
piled on wood till thought we had the
tire hot enough, so took it out, put it
on a rock and two persons held it in
position while a third pounded ou the
supposed hot place with the axe ; it
didn't seem to stick, so thought it
wasn't hot enough and put it back in
fire; piled on more wood; sun get
ling hotter and trying to favor us all
it could with its heat j perspired ;
tried tire again ; fire so hot had to
scrape it out with a long pole ; held
it or. rock with all the rags and old
clothes we could find ; pounder
pounded broken place ; tire wouldn't

weld, so thought it required a little
more, and put it into the log heap
again. Piled on more wood ; fire
blazed and old Sol blazed sweat.
Was sure we would make it now, so
carried water up steep hill to cool
tire after it should be welded ; pulled
tire out of fire with pole, held it on
reck with sticks, and pounded red
place ; nearly stuck, when spark flew
in our eye, let our side of tire wiggle
and it broke its grip ; three or four
voices muttered some rather impa
tient language which sounded to us
something like "d nit," (but our
ears may have deceived us, atid we
don't think they did,) and the tire
was thrown aside in disgust. Wrap
ped the felloes of the wheel with can
vas and ropes, to strengthen it aiid
prevent its wearing oflj and went on
with the wagon, arriving at Summit j
Prairie after dark, our wheel doing !
about as well as if the tire was on it.
Th's afternoon we had come up "seven
mile hill," which we suppose means
that it is about seven miles between
resting places along on the hill ;
there are four resting places.
Arrived at Fish Lake, and as this
was our destination, we took posses
sion cf a vacant cabin which we found
on tho margin of the lake, and this
we made headquarters during our
stay in that locality. Fish Lake is
situated about 75 miles cast of Ah
bany, near the summit of the Cascade
range, surrounded by a dense forest
of tali, stately hemlock trees. The
lake is about two miles long and a
half mile wide. On the north of it
it is a lava field of great extent.
There was no opportunity to fish
here, the water being too high, so we
did our angling at Clear Lake, a body

environed with the forest and lava
that describes Fish Lake; but Cleat
Lake is a great deal larger than the
other, being something near five miles
in length, and the water is as clear as
crystal so clear and transparent
that the bottom can b
eerned forty or fifty feet below the
surface, and the beautiful mountain
trout mav be seen dartini; hither and

Tiio view which hero roots the ov a

and vexations of the trip. J he Jar. us
of onr party walked from the head of
Fish Lake to Clear Lake in the morn
ing, fished during the d.iy, and walked
back to camp in t he evening a dis
tance, in all, of about six miles, the
greater portion of the wny being over
the sharp and uneven lav rocks-, and
the remainder through thick under
brush and over fallen timber.
The past two days were spent by
oar party in hunting and fishing ;
camdit more fish than we needed for
immediate use, so "salted 'cm ;"
hunting wasn't a success until to day,
when two of our hunters came into
camp 'doaded to the guards' with a
little fawn, which was nearly all
"gobbled up'' for dinner. This eve
ning our camp was enlarged by the
arrival of Messrs. Straighthoff, Sum'l
Cooper and Col. Morgan, returning
from Oehoco, and Messrs. C. P. Har
per and Wm. Driggs, Mrs. DeLzon
Smith, Miss Julia Driggs, and the
Misses Annie and Viola Smith, from
This morning Willie Driggs cut
his toot very badly with the axe,
while attempting to cut wood for the
camp fire ; broke camp and started
home ; came up to Lost Prairie, four
miles this side the lake, and en-,
camped to take a two days' hunt ; in
the evening hunters came in with the
saddle of a noble buck, so we detrr
mi..ed that next morning ve would
go out and bring in a buck or two.
In company with Messrs. Harper
and Humphrey, away we went, up a
canyon, in search of the " fleetly flit
ting deer," "bounding roe," ecc; after
going up the creek about three miles,
saw a fawn a few feet in front of us,
which we attempted to capture, but
fawn didn't " Fee it," and retired into
a jungle; followed fawn and pretty
soon got bewildered in jungle and
forgot fawn in attempting to get out;
thought struck us that this might be
a good place for bear ; tried to get
out, but got legs tangled in brush ;
saw bear sign, and wanted to get out;
wanted to climb a tree to see a way
out, but thought might be a bear in
tree and didn't want to disturb hrs

of the bears; looked down the tree
to see that there was no bear under
it for us to step on and hurt, slid
down, picked up our gun, cocked it,
and keeping our "eye peekd" for
fear of stumbling over bears and
hurling them, we made our way out
into an open place as fust as possible,
minus the fawn. Went on up to the
top of the mountain and rested ou a
snow bank. Returned lo camp ;ri
evening, tired and hungry, and no
venison. We probably would have
got a deer in the evening, coming to
camp, but we had seen ccugar sign
just before that, and thought it would
be such a pity to spoil his supper, so
we hurried away and left the deer
for him. The later it grew in the
evening the more good places we
could see for cougars, and we thought
if they all had to have a deer apiece
for supper our chances for venison
were very slim, so we hastened to
camp that they might have full sway.
We didn't go up there to disturb
bears and cougars.
Came down to Upper Soda and
picked eight gallons blackberries.
There will be any amount of them
here for three weeks to come.
On the summit of Wiley Hill four
spokes broke in our debilitated wheel,
so we were forced to make a " slide'

Liect. IIalloran. Lieut. Ilalloran,
formerly one of the proprietors of the
Dalles Mountaineer, returned lo his
post in Washington a few days ago,
after having been stationed a brief
period in South Carolina. Ho is
greatly disgusted with the conduct of
the Southern rebels, and thinks the
" military despotism'' which the Cop
rciheads howl so much about, is all
a myth. He says the " despotism"
is all on the side of the rebel, and
affirms that army officers and North
ern people are everywhere insulted,
ostracised, and persecuted so unrelent
ingly that it makes it impossible to
live among the chivalry. lie says
Northern men are at all limes liable
to be assassinated, and thinks that
the military authority ought to be cm
farced with greater severity, and con
tinued twenty years, or until the reb
els behave themselves. It will be
remembered that Lieut. Ilalloran
was a " conservative' and received
his appointment through Ncsmith.

V IvEMEDY F0U THE LLfE3.
When Whitlock was about to em
bark as Cromwell's envoy to Sweden,
1G(55, he was much disturbed in mind
as ho rested in Harwich on the pre
ceding night, w hich was very stormy,
while he reflected on the distracted
state of the nation. A confidential
servant slept in au adjacent bed, who,
finding that his master could not
sleep, said :
" Pray, sir, will yot give me leave
to ask you i question ?"
" Pray, sir, don't you thick God
governed the world very well before
yon came into it ?"
" And pray, sir, don't you think
that he will govern it quite as we'll
when you are gone out of it
" Then, sir, pray excuse tne, but
don't you think you may as well trust
Him to govern it as long as you arc
in it r
To this question Whit'oclc had
nothing to reply, and, turning about,
soon fell asleep.
Beet Sugar in- California. In
mentioning the fact that a beet sugar
company has been organized in Sac
ramento, California, the New York
Tribiaio says :
Beet sngjr is the child of Protec
tion, but has outgrown the need of
parental nourishment. It is destined
to make the circuit of the globe, fol
low ing its temperate zone, and to in
crease largely the comfort and luxury
of the poorer classes. Low er Illinois
('Egypt') will yet supply beet sugar
cheaper than w e can buy that con
densed from the juice of the cane. It
only wants time and kindly nurture.
Tea, silk, wine, sugar, raisins these,
with the olive, the fi, the peach, are
destined to render California the gar
den of the Pacific. Her valleys will
yet be as populous as China.
Such a notice from such a paper is
worth far more than all the trouble
Sacramcnlans have had in organizing
that company; and even if beet sugar
do not pay, the State will be bene
fitted by the trial, inasmuch as such
announcements as that copied above
cannot but induce emigration, sr.ys
the Sacramento Record.

O'er the stubble, sear and brown,
Flaunt the autumn flowers ;

Like our joys they pass away !
Fanned by many a balmy breeze,
In the spring I love to lie

Gazing upward to the sky ;
Time will pass, i ,
And the flowers of spring must die !

Listening to the thrush's tone,

Decked with buds and blossoms gay
But upon this autumn air
Floats a voice which seems to say,
