McasK.H. F.r!TOK.i- As jt, iiar
nuwjpapt-f j- bVu-hii LiiitiuiC thu
week, and as I am an old student,' I uik
for tho treedoin of your columns ut u
means of communicating' phenomenon of
tho moil extraordinary description, that
has just thrown this community into the
wildest oxcitemorit. Last Tuesday even
ing, as I was returning with Mr. Poaguo,
of this place, from a visit to n friend' un
tho other sldu of tho bridgo, I observed,
upon glancing over into tho chajni, n va
por issuing Iron I somo crevices on tho
western tido of tho bridgo,
and dotcctcd n peculiar odor in
tho atmosphere. .Mr. Poague, upon hav
ing his attention directed to tho matter,
was positive that ho could dotcct some
thing of tho tort hiuisolf. Wo wero at a
loss lo conjecluro tho cautu of this un
wonted disturbance in tho chasm below.
Upon returning homo and informing our
friends of what wo had seen, wo wuru in
formed that our vapor wM a mcro mitt,
and if wo had smolt something unpleasant
it must huvo boon u polo-cat, lor these an
imals aro most plentiful In this locality.
Uut having occasion to ridu over .thu
bridgo early this morning, I found things
in that quartor in n most sadly excited
condition; for about n mile beforu arriving
at thu hotel, I thought I could discern in
that neighbeehood heavy clouds of sinoko
banging intensely black around that part of
tho horizon. As 1 reared tho spot thu smoke
beramo denser and blacker, and when I
got to tho hotel I found everybody exci
ted and everything in tho wildest con
fusion. Thn negroes who occupy tho ilo
sortcd promises noar the bridge on tho
brow ol tho hill had moved down to tho

Ueing engaged u number of years ago
ill a geological mrvey of this region from
tho Dluo Ridguas far west us tho Kanawu
deposits of coal, it was my duty to hives
guto tho resources which an all-bountiful
Providence had vouchsafed our own coun

to this wonderful geological arch, which
ut the tame timo strikingly displays the
hundiwork of Omnipotence and gives it

matter of course to that creat natural
curiosity which every year attracts to
our shurei visitors from ull parts of
mis ianu. in examining critically tho lor
matlon, I discovered that tho briduo was
composed of mountain lime, with largo
ussures mien with grnliumlle, which, us Is
well-known, is a kind of bituminous coal
