" Wei!, Snowball," said our new pas
senger, as be took It in .eat clave to the
XVtb, how do you like the looks of

Iass a 'pinion 'on v. "How much
lave you gt?" That is a pointed
tfjuestion, and the negro hustled to tlve
extreme outer edge ui the stage, aud
although it way eetu impossible, Uiat
larkey turned pule. Here we are at
Farewell I5end, where I meet some old
sicouaiutaoees. who are hound on a
prospecting tour in -tire Salmon Uivcr
country. Here I leave the stage, and
we take the trail down the north side
of smoky river until we reach the mouth
of Salmon. Our course now lays .up
Salmon, over one of the most magnifi
cent mountain countries that ever eye
beheld ; on one hand, towering away
tip among the tight, fleecing elouds,
rises ; mountain rugged, scored and
matchless; away below, like a monster
Mrpent writhing in mortal agooy,mshes,
eeths, swirl. bmlxaad struggles Salm
on river. On its banks grow the fir,
pine and spruce, and it seems, that al
though they had to start at the bottom
of the gorge, they were determined to
reach out to God's b!cftd sunshine,
and hence we find them not over three
fect at "the base and some over three
hundred feet high, and even higher.
Down, down we go to a lcautiful, green
meadow that nestles at the foot of the
mountain, aud on the bank of the river
which is here calm and placid. Thank
goodness wc are onee more on level
ground, our horsca' picketed on the
sweetest, fresh grjen grass, and uow
frith hook baited temptingly with a
licaltby grasshopper 1 tip it into the
wabei,and out it comes with a trout,
'that would doyoursouj good to see, and
joar stomach good to cat. It has now
. Iecn two weeks since we started from
Farewell Bend. The nights are sharp
rand frosty, prospects poor. On, on we
go, mcciing more ujaguiuccm. cvmn;,
grand salt, alumf and sulphur springs,

brings dow the red deer, which, half in
wonder half in fright, stands with its
great ears thrown forward, aud its soft,
dark, almost hubuan- eye wild", in awe,
hardly knowing in its wild innocence
whether to run from us or not. Here
we are, in camp aain, near a great,

oS tttakW'a jdac6Tu"'t!'ic8ii6w' f6t our
horses to graze j we build a fire, roast
our venison,1 faugh and taFlr anUT take
the world easy.- I stumble over some
thing in the-snow ; why, it is the ribs
of a deer. .No; a man, boyst the skel
eton of a man. There he lay, on an old
blanket, all that is left of what ouce
had been a poweiful man, judging from
the eizo of the frame, dead j but did
ever mortal have a grander tomb ? At
his head raised a mountain whose head
was bathed in eternal sun, so far as it
shone in day; around about its top
hung heavy clouds that seemed to cling
there and rest; on its sides, , moving
with all the grace o a field of ripened
grain, stood the magnificent fir, pine
of various kinds: at
his feet, chanting his everlasting lulla
by, ran the '-mountain gorge; on his
left, rambled away a broken evergreen
woodland, grander than ever the inge
nuity of mau can ever place in the
most tuagnificeut parks uf the world.
Iteider, wouM you not like to rest for

kissed her boy, and prayed that he
might grow up an honor to his kiu.
IVrhap she is. praying now for Ii'h re

srave and place him in it, stick Ui
.shovel at the bead, and pick and p in at
his feet, and cover hiui up. Snow com
mences falling, soon his new made grave
wears a shroud white as the livery of
heaven. The pirge moans on, dark"
nes.s sets in, the owl waits out a dismal
cry, the panther vcreauH, the night
bird whistles low and Mtuthiiigiy ; we
spread our blankets, and arc coon ob
Uvious to the troubles of this world.
To be continued.
Henry Clay. In the long disputes
between the States of Virginia and
Kentucky, growing out of what was
termed the "occupying claimant laws,"
Mr. Clay was re'ained by Kentucky to
maintain her rights before that tri
bunal in the last resort," the Supreme
Court of the United States. The then
Speaker of the House of Representa
tives was to appear fur tho first time
before that elevated, dignified and ven-
t.-iiblc body ; and a large concourse of
spectators was attracted by a natural
curi"kity to determine whether the ora
tor of the West would be able to sustain
his high reputation upon this high and
untried theater. When he rose, it was
with some agitation of manner ; but he
soon recovered his wonted composure,
and held hi auditors in admiring at
tention, whi le he pronounced a most
beautiful euhvziutn upon the character
of tkeftons of Kentucky. The Judge's
sat in their black robes sedate and utten
tiv. The late Jud:e Washington,' who
was in the habit of indulging himself
in an occasional pinch of suufT, had
taken out his snuff box for a Itttle ol
that titUating restorative; and Mr. Clay
on bserviog it instantly stopped, aqd
advancing grace! iiliy to the bench with
his thumb and linger extended, par
ticipated with the Judge in the refresh
ment of his nasal organs. As ho ap
plied the pinch, he observed, "I per-
ceivo that - your . Honor .bucks to me
Scotch," n1 ini mediately resuming
his stand, he proceetled with his argu
ment without the legist embarrassment.
So extraordinary a f top over the usual
barrier which separates this court and
the barristers, excited; not a little aston
ishment and adnnr.vfion among the
spectators, and it was afterward aptly
remarked by Judge S., in relating the
circumstance to a friend, that "he did
not believe thcra was an other man in
the United States who c ould have done
that but Henry Clay." . I
From the New York li WW of April
2d we copy this:
George Ormi&ton, a prio tcr, died in
the Consumptives' Homi3, in Boston,
last week, at the age of 0 years
Many years ago ho was fowtnan of the
New York Journal of Commerce, als,
of the New York Sun, and s' abscquently
of the Boston Daily Advertiser.
Ormiston was known am eng. prin
ters as Walk-in the-Wat sr." He
was employed on the Alia in ban Fran
cisco early in 1850. He was foreman
of the New York Sun for yc.rs when
the paper was owned by ftiTses Y.

It is a well known fact that-many ,
persons have very fine aud orderly

the housekeeper will quietly aid the
first to search for beauty this tide the
horizon, and that boy will find a vent
fur his activity without seeing he was
ueutly led to it by an overseeing love.
A house that is blessed with a hous
keeper has an influence that even
strangers feel. They receive that rest
which comes from the "fitting of self to
a sphere." The order of a house may
be mechanical like that of a loom or a
harp; but like these mechanical things,
it conducts to results, and justifies itsrif
by tissues of more than silken fineness
and' music- sweeter than that of the
spheres. If there is a home keeper,
the house work i uot in utter con
fusion, if perchance one rises an hour
too late, l'eople are not expected to
perform miracles, and keep Colfeo aud
toast hot and fresh for an hour. A
breakfjt, such as lata risers should
expect, i. eaten in peace, and not in a
hurry d excuses for not having a meal
that it was impossible to furnish with
out inconvenience and discord in the
kitchen for the whole day. It is foolish
to attempt to keep a icsturaot with
only the arrangements suited to a small
family. The peace of miny a family
i destroyed by attempting impossibil
ities. Th breakf ist of the late riser
need not have an added tirade against
women. ilealtzini; that the truest
regrets his tardiness, she lets the cold
breakfast suffice, but docs what she can
a a a
tiv wont, look ana act. to make the
best t f what cannot be helped, aud
really so cails out th gratitude of the
late n.-er, that ever after that break
fast is a bright aud pleasant memory;
for he feared he was a nuisance, yet
without direct word he felt that his act
did not discommode the arrangements
of the hou?o. His best thought wa
called out, and the house will stand to
biro in after life as a home; for "there
i where the heart can bloom." Home
keeping can be well done by an ener
getic wonnn. Home-keeping requires
that the woman's heart and wisdom be
greater than her house, and that sha
keeps the house only that in it life can
be lived with love and truthfulness.
Cold Barns What showing would
the cost of winter feed of his animals
make on the account-bonk, if the farmer
kept one ? lie wou'd find that a large
portion of his feed had become dissipa
ted in the frozen air of the north wind ;
that a good portion of hay or corn had
gone to melt ice or snow and evaporate
cold rain water, and what was left after
these things had been done, had barely
sufficed to keep life n his beasts. For
in this case, phi1osophy,science,or book
learning, call it whatever you will, is
thoroughly corroborated by practice.
If two beasts arc fed alike, except
that one is kept well stabled and the
other out of doors exposed to the co'd,
the ore thus exposed will consume just
double the amount that the other will,
and will bo in a worse condition beside.
Every man who keeps a cow knows this
to some extent, though may not know
the exact figures. Here we give the
cxavt figures they arc the result of
a careful experiment made by a careful
feeder : Two lots of sheep (of five each)
were selected, of equal weight and con
ditions. One lot was kept out of doors
and unsheltered, the other kept in a
close pen. The lot unsheltered ate 1912
pounds of turnips against 88G pounds
eaten by the other lot. Tho gain in
weight was 23 pounds per head in the
first, 28 pounds per head in the "second.
The profit can be figured out by any man
who knows what turnips and mutton arc
worth. Had not the feeding been very
abundant somo of the exposed sheep
would have died. And yet sheep will
stand more exnosure than calves or
luifers, or even full grown cattle. Not
withstanding all this, every winter's day
one may see young calves humped up
and stiffened with cold, shaking in the
keen breeze, and their owners knowing
at the same time that a year's growth
is thus frozen out of them. This comes
of not figuring up profit and loss.
Toe General and Ills Friends.
tron Scribncr'g for April.
There was once a brave and tatriotie
general who risked his iifo in his coun
try's cause, and so successfully led his
couutry s armies and fought his couo-
trys battles, that a great political cartv
saw that it could retain power by mak
ing him Fresideat of the United States.
Hits party availed itself to the Gener
al's popularity,.: and achieved its object.
Nobody in the country ever supposed
that he was a great statesman, or a
great politician, or that he was remark
ably wise in any respect, except in mat
ters relating to feather and war. We
do not know that lie ever pretended to
be wise in any thing but leather and
war. He thcught aa greater men have
thought, that it would be a nice thing
to be Presideut of the United States ;
and he has done as well in that office,
we doubt not, as he has known how to
do. Oa the whole he has done nrettv
well. The couutry is fairly prosperous,
and both home and foreign affairs have
been managed wisely. If ho has shown
any weakness, he has done exactly what
every national aian expected he would
do. The men who used him to advance
their property interests knew his faults
just as well four years ago as they do
now, aou morally responsible for every
impolitic aod unstatcsmaulike act of his
administration, if any such act has been
committed. Indeed, they cannot W
to know, that the experience of the last
three years has done more to fit him for
the ptuce he holds than all his life had
doue previously.
Now, some of the politicians who
were so ready to twe the General (who
was entirely ready to be used) ure com
ing to entertain a very coutemptous opin
iou of him, when in order to set. ure a
second term of office, and to serve his
owu interest, he proposes to ue them !
to these very virtuous'aud high minded
person) tho General is now belter than
a heathen man and a publican. Sue!
a corrupt, weak, unwise, incompetent
horse-loving, gift-rceicving. undignified,
jttuptd man a the General has become !
We believe it wa the elder Adams
who was called " a hcary-headed incen
diary' in his last political days, and A bra
ham Lincoln, who was almost apotheo
sized amid the slanders of mankind. It
is that the fame of .General Grant, the
soldier, will outlast his political associ
ations, but it eems a pity that our he
roes must for a purposes be forced into
false positions, and have their gow;
names draggel through the mire of po
litical strife. Let us at least admit that
the motive of the President in using the
party which elected hitn for securing a
re-election is as good as that which in
duced that party to usa him at first, to
advance its own interests, when no study
or experience of his life had helped to
prepare him for the duties of his high
office. Still his friends follow the way
of the world ; and the man who consents
to be a tool, must expect to be tossed
aside when no longer needed for use, or
when a change of tools may seem desir
able. Grc.it Britain lias followed up her
annexation of the African gold fields
with that of the Dutch possessions in
Guinea The treaty, by which the
king of the Netherlands gives up tbi
colony, has just been signed, despite the
earnest objection of the people and press
of Holland and the people of Guiuea,
who sent a deputation to protest against
it, all the way to l-athei land, ror its
acquisition England pays a small sum
ol money, and annuls some treaty stip
ulations, by which the Netherlands were
prevented from occupying the great 31 ay
luyan Island of bumatra, so that it is a
mutually advantageous bariin. This
treaty makes England the first of Euro
pean nations in African colonies. Her
foreign subjects number 187,000, GOO,
and they occupy 0,000,000 square miles
of the globe ; but they are uot, on the
whole a source of strength to the mo
ther couutry. Chicago Tribune,
The South Arkansas Journal sajs
that it will bo a terrible blow to the
'lost causeites" to learn that J fferson
Davis, the President of tho late "so
called," is uot a native of tho sunny
south at alt, but simply a Massachu
setts Yankee, having, as an exchange
informs uV'becn born in old Stock
bridge in that State, in the year 18'J8,
aud removed to Kentucky wbeu a child
with his fatner, who was an honest,
hard-working whecl-wright by trade.
To think of the President of the late
"so called" being a Vaukco is awful.
But, not only that, but a Massachusetts
Yankee; horror of horrors. ;
