THEMONTANA POST. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1867.
Thefollowing beautiful scenic descrip^^tion ii from the pen of Col. McClure,^written to the New York Tribune from^Denver. The copy containing it has^just come to hand in one of the back^mails. It gives expression to those emo^^tions common to all on the first view of^the sublimities of the Rocky Mountains,^and is not inferior to D' Israeli's de^^scription of a storm, held as a model of^descriptive composition:
Gowhere you will in this section, the^prospect is most charming, but all is^dwarfed by the indescribable grandeur^of the mountains. We have read and
writtenvolumes about the grandeur of^the Alps, but the world has only one^such view as is presented from the roll^^ing prairie east of Denver. In bewil^^dering sublimity none but itself is its^parallel. There may be isolated views^of the Alps as beautiful as any 20 miles^of the Rocky range, and the icy land ot^Russian America has its St. Elias, that^towers higher toward the heavens than^the highest of these, but here is present^^ed, in one grand view, nearly 200 miles^of the Rocky Mountains, from beyond^Pike s Peak far off to the south, thence^by the Spanish Peaks to Long's Peak,^and still on towa^i the north, until the^range is lost in the dimness of distance.^Black threatening clouds hung about^them when first I saw them, and added^to the peerless beauty of the scene.^Around Long's Peak the storm-king^seemed to be spell-bound or held an easy^captive, for he had no deliverance until^his heavy clouds had been discharged^and broken, and his thunderbolts drawn^in harmless violence. Far behind the^struggling tempest the setting sun was^casting his evening rays through the^tossing clouds, and fringing the very^lightning with his matchless tints. On^either side of the storm he was reaching^out his light, flinging the silver lining^around the raging elements, breaking in^refulgent splendor on the distant peaks,^and flashing in almost dazzling brillian^^cy upon their eternal snows. To the^north the sweeping snows, falling and^flitting in graceful waves, seemed to de^^fy the lightning's erratic flash, while on^the south, the bow of promise illu^^mined the heavens. It was the very^sublimity of moral and material gran^^deur^a panorama that Ood alone^could have fashioned. The great Snowy^Range is the first to meet the eye.^and the observer insensibly wanders^along its vast, ridged, and broken^sweep, until it is lost in the deep blue^vaulted dome on either side. It has no^two points alike, as if the (Jreat Archi^^tect meant to confuse the very concep^^tions of men in this colossal masterpiece^of His creation. Yonder is a cluster of^peaks as if made up of huge inverted^icicles, and beside them it would seem^that gigantic snow-drifts, with their^unique and countless forms, had fallen^in. Here is a hillock of spotless white,^whose garments change not with the^revolving seasons, regular, graceful,^rounding with apparent mathematical^precision until it finishes with its taper^^ed cap of mow. There are deep ravines,^vast gorges, and rude, craggy peaks, as^if the earthquake had taken the West^^ern world in its frenzied arms, and toss^^ed its mightiest rocks in wild disorder^across the plains. Thus north and south,^as far as the eye can see, and for two^hundred miles toward the setting sun,^these vast, snow-clad monuments of om^^nipotent power present their varied^beauties aud surpassing grandeur, and I^turn from them only when the last ray^of the receding sun has parted with their^top-most crowns, and the mellow moon^^light takes up the grateful task of dis^^playing, through night's weary shadows,^this mute but most impressive tribute an^all-wise God has reared to Himself.

AWashington dispatch to the N. Y.^World, dated July 7th, says the Bar of^the Supreme Court of the District of^Columbia, Saturday afternoon, passed^resolutions consequent on the death of^Judge Wayne. One ot them is as fol^^lows :
Resolved,That we honor and admire the em^^inent judicial qualities, the great learning^spotless integrity, keen sense of justice and^signal urbanity which distinguished the de^^ceased during his long judicial career, and the^devoted patriotism manifested by him at the^most critical period of the history of the^country.
Hon.Caleb Cushing, Mr. Bradley and^Chief Juetice Cartter pronounced brief^eulogies. The last named said, ^One of^Judge Wayne'i characteristics was his^unfaltering belief in the perpetuity of^this nation, and he ever looked forward^through the gloom of war to the ultimate^triumph of the nation.
Inthe Criminal Court Saturday morn^^ing, before proceeding with the Surratt^case, Chief Justice Carter being on the^bench, Mr. Carrington announced the^death of Associate Justice Wayne of the^Supreme Court, and said he thought it^due that this bar should pay a tribute of^respect to so eminent a j urist. He there^^fore moved the appointment of a com^^mittee of five members to prepare suits-^able resolutions to be presented at the^meeting of the bar to be held this after^^noon. The motion was agreed to, and^Judge Carter appointed Messrs. Car^^rington, dishing, Pierrepont, Bradley^and Merrick the committee contem^^plated.
Thefuneral of Judge Wayne took^place this afternoon, and was attended^by many persons of distinction.
