indicate that all apprehension has been sometime p

FROM OUR MOUNTAIN CORRESPONDENT.
PICK ENS DISTRICT, Nov. 1858. .'
Ma. Ensvon:-Itis not selfishness to say that "char- ~
ity should begin a~t hsome." It would, perhaps, be noP
mis-nonier to call this the first principle of self-pro
servation. We are told in Holy Writ thathe whojro- te
vidleth not for his own household, hath denied the
faith and. is worse than an infidel. Now, the people
of the Southern States have a great deal to say about tr
Northern fanaticism. And how could it he otherwise, "'
when that peatilenet thing is constantly attempting to 0*
eneroaeh upon the moat cherished rights of our see-.
ion, and threatens also to break up the host Govern- tl
ment over devised by man ? But has the South al- BI
ways acted wisely in regard. to this sectional contro
versy ? Casn any one believe that the "negro-wor. sl
shippers "-those infamous disorganirserashmd atheists, p'
would he so insolent and exacting, had the Sonthrons 20
never been conte't to " play second fiddle " to the ici
yankees, in more particulars than one? Doing an e
Agricultural people, we imuported too freely from the he
land of wooden nutmegs, and of ether small notions. '
FPskion and Commnerce have levied heavier contribu
tions upon Southern prosperity, than thse tariff or the nl
"under-ground railroad." We can hardly buy or sell foi
any thing at all without paying commissions, either ash
directly or indirectly, in the City of New York. Ad

Northern ocean views, Northern mountain scenery -
and Northern mineral waters all help tospirit away
the gold and silver, whicharoeso much needed at home -
to embelish our own beautiful land.
But the friends of momec improremsent think they see p
the dawn of a better and a brighter day. Direct
trade is on the increase, whilst the scream of the lo- t
comtire and the hum of facte'rles are imparting life
and energy to regions that had well-nigh sunk into,
" the slough of despond." Persons of "eant lois-ar
r " have discovered that there are sweet vai mur
muring cascades, gray crags and' towering ma ntains
on the South.side of the Potomac. To ii alid,
and to the sincere lover of Natpre, and f Nature's
simplicity and grandeur, I can think of no place so
full of promise as Cashier's Valley. Ismpriaais, there
is a plenty of game. Deer can be started here almost
any day; not unfrequently a bear is encountered, and
semiocasionally a panther. Wild animals, I think, es
will always abound here, because the country for miles tra
and miles in every direction is for the most part too10
rugged for human habitation. Hog Back mountain,
In the immediate vicinity, is not only very "grand,
gloomy and peculiar " in its general outlines, but the
laurel groves on its brow and on the adjacent spurs, at
