that' this Is oae of the tajst beautiful and
picturesque spots In the territory. The
country Is made np of bsauttful II ttte priN
rles t urrounded by hilts. Thcio prairies arc
generally covered with the best of grass
the whole year, (the grartbopptr this sta
son have completely mowed them,) while
the td'aecnt bills afford tlmtcr of every v.

The Tallert are small.aad water and timber
Is ahooJant. anJ as eonrmleot as roul.l U- i
wished for. In one of the choicest of tUcso
little valleys, Gen. Lane ulectcd a lsnd
claim lomo two years slice, for the many
natural advantages It pessctted for stock
growing and agricultural purposes, and we
much sdmtrs tin taste the General has ex
hlblttd In his selection
nt- 1 1. i..it. '
ills ivuso is millfc
on sn eminence from which a splendid vlew
of lbs surrounding country Is had. Altho",
tvcrtltieo bis location hire be has been,
nearly all the time tngiged with public du
ly, yet Lis claim bears evidence that be hss
not leen lite In the Interim, and that he Is
a good practical farmer as well ns. a great,
General and statesman. A commodious
house bos been built, and Gnlsbcd In a com
fortable and substantial manner. About 30
acres of the claim has been cultivated this,
year, and we here noticed one of tha most
promising looking gardens we have teen
this season, which wo were pained to see
being daily destroyed by the blighting rav
ages of the grasshoppers. ll
We fennd the General busily engsged la.
barrelling Lis small grain, planning opera-'
tlons for more extensile improvements, Ac!
We were not surprised to tee this ; we werol
aware that Gtn. Lane was not only tbeorct.
ically, but practically n democrat a man
although possessing an enviable national'
reputation who Las wen renown and Irn-1
perishable fame by Lis brilliant achieve-'
ments and military skill In Mexico, yet,
who Is not afraid to work, to swing the'
scythe and hold the plow with his own hands'
whose bappleit momenta (as ho tcld us)
were tpent In tilling the so.l, in seeing bis
labor rewarded with a bountiful harvest, In
witnessing bis herds fattening on the luxu-)
riant grass, and sweeping over the beautN
ful valleys. Wc were forcibly reminded of
similar Inclinations and disposition of other1
eminent Americans. The "father of his
country," the Immortal Washington, was'
proud to hare on opportunity to labor en
bis firm and to witness the growth of his
crops. These are tie kind of men that,
made America free, nnd these arc the kind j
that will steer her straight through all con. I
tending elements. Such men hive a com-'
mon sympathy with all classes of people,
and particularly the laboring class, who arc
the legitimate rourco of the greatness and
wealth of alt nations, and who should be
encouiaged as far as practicable by judl
clous acts of legislation. Such men Lave
been and arc yet the true Amer'oica, true
Republicans, and true Democicts, In theory,
sentiment and practice, of this great coun
try. To-day an humble cltlz:n, mingling
with his Cocks and herd), laboring with hit
hands, and earning his "bread by the sweat
of bis brow," and to-morrow he Is In the
councils of the nation, discussing great mea
eur.'t for tha bcncGt of the psoplc, and as
sisting In framing laws fur their mutual in
tercets and protection ; ready at all times to
'ctcr the battle lIcU In defence or the liber
ties and honor of bit country. Such is the
rhsraeter and disposition of Gen. Lane.
When wo witnessed Low comforluUo LU

rcemed to enjoy himself turroundid by his
children ond friends how it pained Llm t
think of separating himself nga'u from them
ko Boon no could scarcely think that there
was ono In our bud so lost to nil thame, to
all sense or honor, to justice, to truth, to
attempt to Injure Gen. Lan's private char-
aoter, as was attempted to be done prior to
nlectloo, by n bane, malicious, nnd fulK'
