At the fi rt eight ol this rlvi r I wa filled

The rivt-r-bed Is'fllled with rocks of every
form and uze souie ol litem will weigh a
rxid ni-iny llnmsnnd tons ;' they form Hula

Hie occupants of hu niouulain sides and (ops,
but losing ihelr.hold, thty canie .tumbling
down (o where tht-y now lie. I nskt-d myself,
What will become), ol' them next f" Coming
ages must answer. ' Doubtless, Uud has some
use for them in the future.
The curs cross1 the- river Iu sight of "flawk's
Nest" and run down on the opposite side, and
the scenery begins to lose some of its extreme
roughness. But as the intense interest-in (be
rivi-r scenery ubatecf,"it only gave place to iu
turtht iu the railroad itself. . .
The construction of this railroad is a won
derful achievement of mind over matteri Ilun-
tinglon, whj projected the road, has made
good his right to a place in the front rauk of
rettt, prncticul engineers." For many inlh a lis
course Is laid through olid rock. - In going
Irom Kanawha FhIIb to Talcolt the cars pass
hrough lour tunnels, one of which is a mile
and a quartei long. 1 lit ee tunnels are cut
through solid rock, In the base of the worm
tnlns. ' f
We reached Talcolt about half-past 5 o'clock
in the eVt-oing. f ,-Uert is a d' tot, atiij a small
seltl't-inrtif, Vith tvt-o stores', but nolintcl. We
stayed at a privato bouse until morning, then
started at bulf-pnsl 9 o'clock, in I lie stage lor
he Red Sulphur Springs, a dUnuice of thir
ecu miles across ihc mountains. There wi re
seven patn-engi-re beside tnysell and Mr. fjhul-
fer. Four nf lliem were from Philadelphia
orto from Sou lb Carolina, one a resideut of
these parts and the othi r one 1 did notsleiirn
where he was from. The South Curoliniitn
was emphnlicully Houtln rn in sentiment and
feeling, and disliked vry much In luar any
thing suid nbout the.war and the emauciia
lion of the sloves. I Judge he has been a rich
slave-holder. He said the white people were
now ruled by Sniggers" of course, we- -know
what he means. This turning ol the tnbles
appears lo be Vt-ry disagreeable lo him fl
in iy be this condition of things has something
to do w ith his poor stole of health. If so, 1
think sulphur water -will not do much towards
moving the eaute of his suffering.
This stage ride is a very rough passage in
life for a sick person. The roads are not only
hilly, bul seriously rough, and in some places,
enough to jolt the bottom of a man's 'stomach
out. In the present condition of the road,
there are places which tre really dangerous.
Noiulug but great .care, and "wntchftilness; pn
the barl ol the driver, prevents t lie singe irom
upsetting and tumbling down into a fearlul
moitulatn gorge. ' 'The' scenery aloug this
r.mte is pleasant, and the road is closely flank
ed with a great yntii ly of trees and shrubs.
We reached the Bed Sulphur Springs about
2 o'clock In the afternoon. These springs, of
which IbeVe '( are twor-mot'1 mote tbsn'ien : teet

of Saratoga; but the careless crowds
that frequent that mammoth hosterly

His grandfather ' was General Harry
Iveo, ot revolutionary light-horse caval
ry fame, and his mother a slave woman
named Jennv, a maid of Mrs. Ltie. Soon
after thehbth of William Jackson, the
waiter's father, Jenny was sold to Col.
IStewart, of Frederick county, Maiyland,
The boy William showed extraordinary
intelligence, and became a pet of his
master, and on the death of Col. Stew
art found himself free by a clause in the
will. William .went immediately, to
Washington where he had been many
times with his master. There he met
John. McLean, Post Master Gcueral un
der Andrew Jackson, a friend of his old
master. . .
Judge McLean appointed him a mes
senger in the Post Office Department at
a salarv of $000 per anum.
While a messenger in the Fostofllce
Department, ' William Jackson tuet a
beautiful, long haired octoroom; the
slave of old Judge John Stewart, of
Baltimore. The slave girl's name was
Kuchel, and - she came to attend Mi-is
Stewart, one of the fashionable belles, at
President Van. liuren's reception.
William lost his heart with the dusky
maid, and soon went to Baltimore to get
Judge Stewart, who owned her, to con
sent to their marriage.
; "No sir," said the Judge indignantly,
"Haclifl is a slave, and she must marry
a slave. ; it one marries a iree nigger sno
will bo 'running away herself and be

"Never, until somebody buys her from
me," replied the Judge. ",' "' ,
liachel was sent to the Fredrick coun-!
ty farm, aud thither William went in
the night to hold a consultation with,
her; First it was resolved to run away.
But there was no chance of success. The
Fugitive Slave Law was in effect, passes
were required by the slaves on a plantation-
and to ' run away was surely to be
caught, i returned, and. then a dreadful
whipping followed.,!, . - '.
"Oh w hat can we do?" sobbed Rachel.
"I know," replied William; ,"1 will

"But you have no money."
"I can work and earn it, replied the

When the Romans conquered Car

But in Morocco they were sett led only on

and Cicero describe it as a peaceful
province; but, when the bad days of the
empire came, it wait disregarded to a
cornfield, and was forced to feed, ; at its
own expense, to the Roman lazzaroni.
The Governors became satraps, . the
great laud owners were accused of con

region between the Tell and the Sahara

them to accept the mission of the proph

time Jews abounded in Barbary; their

Everybody round Detroit," "fly the
I'ree I'm, ban heard or seen the noto
rious "Mollie 3fatchc.e," a young fellow
of thirty or thereabouts, Who had lifted
more "leathers," than any pickpocket 6f
hi age in the country. A day or two
since "MaiciiM" 'turned up ml.1rii,
and his pall in Windsor announced that
he ha gone to Savannah, Ga., to fee his
dying1 mother. It oeem that the thief
wanted to go to Chicago, and fearing
arrest ou this side, lie disguised himself
as, a clergyman,' having 011 the standing
Collar, white choker, and double breast
ed black coat, a regular man 6f the
cloth. A wig and a pair of spectacles
so changed bis appearance that he was
sale, niid lorenect lie earned along a
Bible. The fellow asscrti that thus dis
gn'B :d he talked with the officials of the
ferry bout and with a policeman 011 this
gide, and his questions were promptly
answered and his disguise unsuspected.
He was in Chicago three days, going
about in the role of a minister, aud it
is believed that he "lifted enough grueu
banks to make the excursion proti table.
He started for home Tuesday evening,
while waiting in the depot for the tram
to leave, he noticed a portly good-tempered
man evidently with a full wallet,
wiping his mouth as if it had just had a
drink of something cheering. "Match
es" at ouce took the man aside and read
him a lecture on the siu of swallow ing
uiint-julps and sweetened brandy. The
man, who is reported to be a Bos
touian, interested in the sugar-stave bus
iiiess, pleaded to have a weakness which
should have been suppressed long ago,
but for family trouble, and the two suon
became we'.! acquainted.
When the train started both occupied
the same seat, and their conversation
for the next three hours was on such
topics as to make a man feel nearer to
that good place beyond the clouds.
"Matches" finally 'introduced the sub
ject of cholera morbus, in order to get
back to the practical world, and he show
ed the stranger a bottle of stuff which
he said had been put up for him in Buf
falo. The Bostou man tasted, and the
taste was so good that he wished he bad
the "morbus" a little in order to cure it.
He was pressed to "take hold," as the
liquor was a preventive rather than a
cure, aud up went the bottle again aud
agaiu. About midnight the Boston man
,was a picture of happiness. , He slept
w ithout a break until he reached De
troit, and was then so stupid that if it
hadn't been for the "preacher" he might
have walked out of the wrong end of
the depot. His intention was to go
East with the other passengers, and
why he didn't is more than he can tell.
He woke up at 3 o'clock in the afternoon
t j find I i usclf in bed at a small hotel
on Woodbridge street west. It is need
less to say that he had been robbed of
his cold watch and wallet the latter con
taining several hundred dollars.
What Protection Has Done.
While Democratic papers are divided
in opinion ou the free trade question it is
refreshing to know that Americans now
no bmger buy Americau pocket-knives
for the sake of encouratreinir Americau
industry. !' American tiles aud- other
tools made in this country are1 no lon
ger discarded because they ; . arc' "Ameri
can, the best oranas Deing equal to too
best Euglish make. In this connection
it is pleasant to note that all the elements
pertaining to unsettled state of foreign
iron, coal and wages markets, are decid
edly in favor of American manufactur
ers, and at the present time English bar
iron cannot be imported except at heavy
loss. The London 7'imes, of a recent a
date, says the wonderful developement
of iron and hardware industries of the
Unitod States cause serious apprehen
sion in the hardware district of Eng
land, of which Birmingham is the centre;
and this appreheusiou is cofinned by the
marked diminution of orders for certaiu
classes of hardware, to the manufactur
ers of which have hitherto found in the
American market their best customers.
It may also be added t hat American
productions in this respect are already
supplanting English goods in Canada,
and - to- some cxteut in Australia. ' A
"well informed correspondent" in the
Birmingham Pott, writing Irom - New
York, says that the day.or.tlje , Sjihof
Enirlish hardware iu the Luited -States

ial articles, such as Rodger's cutlery,
British manufacturers may be able to
undersell, but the tiuperiority of Yankee
skill aud iugeuuity will force- a market
iu England itself for many articles of
Americau hardware; that Yankee 'cut
lery will appear on English dinner ta
bles, and Yankee saws, augurs and chis
els be perfcrred by the carpenters of
Birmingham and fchefheld. And thus
American manufacturers have turned
