Washington, August 30.
Did you ever hear Gov. bwineford
tell his wonderful stories about
Alaska? Some of the streams up
there are so lull of salmon that, in
the season, boats are actually im
peded in navigation, owing to the
countless millions of these fine fish.
But in all the Governor's tales he
touches the mosquito very lightly.
It remains for Dr. ltosse and a gen
tleman connected with the sealeries
just here from Sitka, to give the
plain truth about Alaska mosquitoes.
These pests are found to be trouble
some in Alaska, says Dr. Rosse.
How strange that the little drone of
these little d6ptcrious insects, recall
ine the solicitations for a pour Loire
in a French cafe, should inportuno
one's ears so far north as the Arctic
regions, beyond the di zain of the
ordinary "globe (rotter" and un
known tourist! 4'lie little pests
are mire widely distributed than
the innuit race or the rein
deer, to both of which they
cause great annoyance during
the short Arctic summer. Frail as
they are in body, they have roached
as far north as man can penetrate,
having boen fouodbv the Nare's ex
pedition, and, unlike other insects,
they seem to have no relations to the
external conditions by which they
are surrounded, bciogin fact cosmo
politans, and having no toological
Not only are they uneonfined to
any limited or definite area, thoir
distribution in time is contemporan
eous with if not antecedent, to man,
as their fopsil remains have beeu
found in the tertiary beds of the
lower White river, Colorado, and an
instance is even recorded of thoir
nffnrriino' material for Esauimaux
wit at the expense of Lieut. Sohwat
ka, who was facetiounly twrined by

Visitors are oblieed to twear thick
leather gloves, and the seal merchant
states tt at on many occasions wnea
out shooting, if he was too long in
taking aim. he was compolled . to
shake the gun barrel in order to get
the mosquitoes off, and then take an
other aim before they alight again,
otherwise he could not have seen the
Arctic mo?quitoesas encountered
in Alaska, surpass auy seen even in
New Jersey, for instance, where, it
is said, thev collect at timea about
village church steeples in such forms
as to be mistaken lor smoke and
f-uiisn an alarm of fire. Tho mer
chant adds that they are worse than
anytbiug of the kind ho ever ex
perienced at buo.1i places as Tybee

river,Texas. Tlio Alaska insect, how

and activity, in consequence
of which they nrn umible to get out
of the way quickly, and can easily be

to bo just as bloodtnirsty ana veno

It will be remembered in the Corwin
" expedition uinsquitoes were found
to do very trouITlesouie, and owing to
their excessive annoyance in tho
Arctic rccions at times it was found
to be almost iuiDossiblo to use the
sciontifio instruments in takiug ob
servations when tho position of a spot
on shore was to be determined. On
one occasion at a desclatb spnt on the
top of Chaniissa Island, two hundred
feet above the sea, an astronomical
station was found which had been
established by parties from English
ahips in search of Sir John Franklin,
and near it was a notice that a bottle
was buried to many loot away toward
the maenctic north. Curiosity, of
course, prompted thcin to trettu
bottlo by all means, but tho mos
quitoes descended in such myriads
that further search was actually
abandoned. There were no other
' eigns of animal life on the island.
Many wen of the Corwin's crew
were seriously incommoded by mos
quito bites and stings on exposed
parts of their bodies, one man's
neck and face being 80 swollen from
this cause that ho was tcmpbrariJy
deprived of his eyesight.
"By the by," remarked the Alas
kan, "did you know that tho United
States capital wis full of mos
quitoes?" "Fact! I was up there tho other
day and found myriads of the Dsts
in the Senate Chamber aud House of
Representatives, and the attendants
told mo that the committco rooms
swarmed with them, drawn thither,
no doubt, by the crowds o( pooplo
who congreg-ite in the vast building
tip to the adjournment of Congress ia
tho early days of August. Thsyare
small and nearly noiseless ; bite abont
as soon as they alight on the person,
but have little venom."
The Congressman departed, leav
ing this annoyance. Moquito not-
: ting is in active demand this season.

A new department has boen addod
to mortuary statistics by Mrs. Ir.
Mary Oaken Brown, of Albany. This
lady was in court on Monday aa
complainant in an assault caso, and,
in response to a question, said abo
had been married three times. Her
first husband was a physician, the
second a Presbyterian minis'er, and
tho last one a rag peddler. Her first
two husbands are dead. Her first
husband, she adled, was "a good
man, and he was blown thirty-two
tact in the air by tha explosion of a
etcara boiler." "What about the
.minister ?" was asked. "Oh, he died
irein too much piety, I guess." 10

from intelligent men who were pres

all the votes he may have made by

So far as his flints at tho editor of
the Jonrnal are concerned, we can
didly confess that his abuse was tar
pref erable to us to any words 01 com

That he has singled out too Byhalia
Jaurmil as a special object 01 his an-
imnahv. from the large number of
newsnapors within and without
the district which have handled him
without gloves, but proves that we
have dealt the doughty warrior some
hlnwa that are felt, tor it is evident
that the "galled jade winces," and
at least one Pig headed editor nas
tnunVied him unon a tender snot.
In all of our strictures and edito

rirrannalities. and have only eriti

public record has been ao glaringly

disposition to do otherwise we have

is a tine mineral spring which would
attract the attention ot tho passer by
wtre it Bituated elsewhere than in
one of the most secluded spots on
earth; almost at tho base of an im
mense hill, surrounded, or near
ly so, with hazlcnut bushes,
ferns, mosses, wild flowors, etc.,
which give it a romantic appearance,
it is to be seen sending oft a stream
of cold, clear water, which winds its
way down the lnllsiuo in a circuitous
route, lending also an air of romance
to the general appearance of nature.
The most prominent teature ot at
traction is the appearance of this
stream, wbich is thickly lined or
coated with a sediment (caused by
the strong minerals in the water)
of a bright golden or Bulphur yel
low, making it look beautiful, with
the clear water rippling over it and
falling over tho roots ot trees in
miniature cataracts. As I am only
"a looker on in Venice," not owning
said spring or apting as advertising
agent, I can speak of the merits of
same without lear ot my motives
being misconstrued. JUy desire is

ts I believe this spring to
be one of the finest in America I can
not say too much in its praise, and as
it will be ot easy access to itlein-
phians (should a depot bo properly
located) I would regret exceedingly
were 1 to tall in Camus the attention
of said officers of the railroad to the
existence of this spring; and right
here I will honestly admit that I am
fiersonally interested thus far in the
nnatinn of a depot at this point as I
expeot to return to Memphis and as
that will he my home 1 would liko to
have the opportunity of visiting this
spring every summer, and believe
that nundred of others would do
likewise if they only knew of tho
merits of the water; and as I under
stand the present owners intend
building a hotel and fixing the
placo up for the reception ot
visitors (provided thy can
havo the benefit ot a depot). I think
the railroad company would d well
(and I doubt not that taty will) to
