to Plttsfleld, twenty mile west, where we
again changed cars, and waited an hour

ramble over the town, which, like Spring
field, bu beautiful broad street, tbaded
with many fine old tree, and Interspersed
with beautiful residences, one of the finest
oi which is the property of Tho. Allcnf

at his beautiful country seat in PitUfleld
From FltUflold to North Adams, twenty
mile north, where we again wero obliged
to undergo a provoking delay of an hour,
and change of cars.
Has improved vory much within ft year.
It is one of tbe most lively, bustling little
town we ever saw. Tbe Hoosac river
running directly through tbe village gives
it st splendid water power, which is exten
sively used. There are many large manu
factories hero of various kinds, including
tbe celebrated Arnold Bros.' extensive
print works, whioh turn out thouisnds of
yard of calicos per dsy. Tbo Wilson
House, large and fine hotel, run by
Messrf . Streeter and Swift, has been ro
cently overhauled and put in splendid
order, its outside having received e new
coat, similar in color to the new dress of
tbo St. Charles, and looking equally as
well. From North Adams to Williams
town, five miles north, whero we left the
cars for a carriage (which is in waiting on
the arrival of every train, for person
wishing to visit Greyloek,) and after a
ride of a mile we reined up In front of
Greyloek Hall, and found Swift on the
broad platzft awaiting our approach and
extending to us a hearty welcome. We
crowded with guests, two hundred in
number, wbo have come to stay, most of
them, for the sesson, bringing with therm
in many instances, their own private
equipages, and servants. We noticed while
there two splendid four-ln-bands, a hand
some tandem team, attached to a stylish
English dog-cart, and many fine double
teams. Every morning after breakfast
tbo broad puma of Greyloek present a
lively aspect, a the several team drive
up, receive their load, and dash down
the park for a morning ride.
Greyloek Hall has been so much im
proved tbe past year, that it boars but a
faint resemblance to It appearance last
year, having changed a much as from
child to manhood it having increaed in
size Just fourfold, now presenting front
of 165 feet (the St. Charles has ft front of
100 reet;, ana accommodations for over two
hundred guests, is brilliantly ligltel by
KM made on tbe premises, and has a I tbe
modern conveniences, even to ft telegraph
in the office, which brings it into instant
communication with the outer world.
The house is situated on an elevated
plateau, and completely circled by moun
tains including Saddlo Mountain, Prospect
WiU'ems, Fitch and Greyloek, which loom
up In solemn grandeur, never forgotten by
one who has seen them. Running throngb
the grounds of Greyloek is
mountain trovt stream,
which, in the earlier part of tho season
contains plenty of trout, and is good fish
ing, And just here let me say that the
table at Greyloek we never saw surpsssed
in ft like place in the country, and when
we say that it is supplied several times ft
week with speckled trout at ft cost of one
dollar per pound, your readers can judge
what tho balance ot the bill of fare must
be. The drives in tbe vicinity are many
and varied. The roads about an J over th
Berkshire bills are broad, hard and beauti
ful. Although we reached here by such a
roundabout way, yol tbe place is vory easy
of access. Coming from tbo West, you
take the cars at Troy for Williamstown, a
distnnce ot only forty-tbreo miles, and
which is made in less than two hours' time-
We found an old Calroite here, O. W
Green, Esq., who is now prosperous
merchant in Peoria, but wbo speaks in the
highest terms of Cairo and Its warm
hearted, genial inhabitants. To return to
Greyloek. One of its peculiarities, and
which yet will become famed sill, over the
Union, is its celebrated "Band Springs,"
tbo waters of which seem to possess almost
miraculous healing properties for acute
rheumatism or cutaneous diseases. Tbe
water retains a uniform temperature of
74, winter and summer. Extonsivo
bsthing houses have been eroded, includ.
Ing several "plunge" baths, in which your
correspondent bas dally luxuriated since
he ha been bore. One peculiarity of the
water i that no soap can be used with it.
The soap, so to speak, shuts itself up, and
remains like a stone in your hands, while
on tbe contrary, if your hands havo un
fortunately come into contact with axle
grease, or anything that it is hard to ro
movo with, snap, all .you havo to do is to
plunge them into the water of tbo spring
and they will come out clean and puro.
The, water also bu ft singular effect upon
the skin, giving It ft peculiarly soft and
satiny feeling. It also has a powerful
effect on all skin' diseases. Since our ar
rival here, two men came to Greyloek,
.badly poisoned by Ivy, thoir bands and
est being very much swollen. After
stay of only! three dayr, and by bathing
V number of times, thsy went, away en
tirely cured. Quite aa remarkable- care'
was, efeetad lr , of aeute rheunu-
jtUm, the sufsrtr 'being ft lady who had
tried, all the so-called besliBg sprtags,
finally persuaded by Mr1. Swift to try the
baths. To cut my story short, in few
weeks she went away completely cured.
This was last season. She' is now in
Europe, and bas never had a return of this
dlstressleg complaint since sbe left "Tho
Springs," Isst fall. Tho proprietors of
Greyloek Hall, also tbo Wilson Uouta at
North Adams, Mass., n. M. Strecter and
Fostor E. Swift, are too well known in
Cairo in connection with the
iit rmnt iinTH
to neu muj ... . ,
the former being conticctecf wTtn'US uS"'
for two and tho latter over six years.
Their names aro as familiar with you as
household words. They had many ques
tions to ask about you, each and all, and
will ever remember Cairo and its Inhabit,
ants with kindly feelings. Wo hopo and
trust they are now on the road to famo and
fortune. They are young, energetic, push
ing men, know how to keep n hotel in
every sense of tbo word, and a proof of
their popularity is the crowded slate of
Greyloek HalHtrtresent season.
