A coHiU'.si-ONiiKNT of the New York

ISuil, if cut in t'.e other months of the
year, the bark peeled otT and tho tim
ber laid up on supports two feet or so
from the pround, and permitted to sea
son well before using it, would the dif
ference of epdiiraiien be so much?
Many years- ago 1 had white cedar

I reversed them, and sel. these well-seasoned

been thus used for several years, and

and BO.OiW cavalry can be considered as

exists, however, only on paper, as the

the eomiiiamlers, who pocket in cnstv
., iuiiir large sums. ' Notwithstanding'

! the army, it is -not iu anyway to be
compare.! with a F.uropwan army. Iu
i Its tirst 'organization' it proceeded out
ol Ihe eight small Mauchoo corps, with
the help of which China was conquered
at the beginning of the seventeenth
' century and the present dynasty estab
lished. Willi tho eight Tartar aud
'eight Chinese oorps which were formed
later, 'China had an aniiv of about, loo,
I 00d men. Only a small part of this
i army has Kuropean riltes, and is drilled
, to some extent by Lnglish and French
olliecrs; tho greater number havo uo i
' other arms but heavy swords, lances, j
' and even bows and urros. The

i but to protect tfto residence and tho :

is 'composed of tit battalions of j

which may be considered the. nucleus

' army of tho "green colors," which, as '
China has 1H Provinces, is composed of :

1 KAiti.Yone bright mornlnginthe niuT
1 die of Indian Summer, while tho glacier
j nieadowj were still crisp with frost
, crystals, I set, out from the foot of
j Mount Lvell, on my way down to Yo
1 somite Valley. I had spent the past
i summer, and many preceding ones, ex
ploring tho glaciers that lie on the licad
1 waters of tho San Joaquin, Tuolumne,
I Merced and Owen's Hi vers; measuring
. and studying their movements, trends,
' crevasses, moraines, etc.. and tho part
they played during tho period of their
' greater extension in the croatiou and
; development of tho landscapes of this
Alpine wonderland. Having been cold
' and hungry so many times, and worked
so hard, I was woary,"and began to look
1 forward with dcKght to" 1 h approaeh
! Ing winter. Wheu I would 'bo warmly
i snow-bound in my Yosemite cabin, with
I plenty (f Dread and books: but a tingo
! of regret came ou when I considered
that possibly I Was uow looking on all
. this fresh wilderness for tho last time.
I ' To describe these glorious Alps, with
their thousand pe:iks and spires dipping
' far into the thm sky, the ice and snow
and avalanches, glad torrents and lakes,
I woods and gardens, the bears in the
proves, wild sheep in thedir.zy height
these would require the love-work of a
, wiioic nie. 1110 lessons ami enjoy
ments o( oven s. single day would prooa
tily weary most rea lers, uowevur con-
1 smilingly iuLorestod they might be if
i brought intif acinar contact with them
i Therefore, I am only going to offer
some enar.'icicnstui pictures, drawn
: from tlia wildest places, and strung to
I pel her on a strip of narrative. "
! Few -portions of tho California Als
i are, trictly sneaking, picturesque. The
: whole massive uplift of the range, four
' hundred and fifty miles long, by about
, nevoid V 'wide. Is one trratid picture, not
j eleurly divisible Into smaller ones; iu
J thiii respect ..it dillcrs ureatly from jtho
1 older ami riper mountains of the I oust
j range. All the landscapes of tho Sierra
were born again reino leled deep down
to the roots of their granite foundations
by the developing lee-tloods of the last
geological 'wluier. Hut all were not
(nought forth bimidiaiieously; and, in
ggnei al, the less separable are they into
artistic bits capable of being made inLO
warm, sympathetic lovable pictures, .
Here, 'however, on the Jiuasl-wate.'H
of tbe Tuolumne, i a group, of. wild
Alps on which the geologist may nay '
tho sun has but just begun to shine, yet
in a high tb-groo picturesque, and in all
its mam features so regular and evenly
balanced as almost to appear conven

the whole surgingfrco into the sky from

lofty Walls are beveled away ion both

to it.: The foreground was now all
allame with autumn oolors, brown ami
pm'filM nTrd-'jfotcl.irlpei in the . mellow v ,
sunshine; contrasting brightly with the
deep,. obalt blue of the sky, and the
black and pray, nnd mire,, spiritual
whilo ol tho rocks and glaciers. Down
through the midst, tin) young Tuolumne
was seen pouring from it crystal foun- 1
tains, now resting in glassy pools avs if -changing
buck ngain into ice, now leap
ing jn whKe Cascades as if turning Ui
sno.v; gliding right nnd left between
the granite bosses, then sweeping, on ,
through the smooth, meadowy levels of
tho valley; swaying pensiyely from sidif
to side with calm, statoly gestures past,
dipping willows and sedges, aud around
groves of arrowy pine; and throughout
its whole eventful course, (lowing fast
or slow, singing loud or low,, ever fill
ing the landscape with spiritual anima
tion, and manifesting the grandeur of
