I was t ruck with the lino nppr-nnuno of their cattle, some fix or ei;:!it yoke of oxen, which really looked as well as if'thev had Ucii all the Stimmer at work on Fame good farm. It wan t range to sec one small familv travelling along through Mich a country, sore mote from civilization, ivune nine years since, such a security might have been a fatal one ; but since their disastrous defeats in the country a little north, the r.Iackfect have cciM-d to visit these water?. In dian.'?, however, are very uncertain in their localities; end the friendly feelings, uldo, of those now inhabit ing it may he changed. "Crossing, in the afternoon, the point of a narrow spur, we descended into a beautiful bottom, formed by a lateral valley, w inch presented a picture of home beauty that went "directly in our hearts. The edge of the wood, for several miles along the river, was dot tod with the white rovers of emigrant wagons col lected in groups at dilTercnt camps, where the smokes were rising lazily from the fires, around which the women wen occupied in preparing the evening meal, and the children paying in the gras; md herds of cattle, grazing about in the bottom, h id an air of quiet seeuriiyand civilized c:ufort that made a rare Mght for the'travellcr in surh a remote wilderness. 'In common willi all the emirati'-n, they had been rep sing f r several days in the delightful valley, in order to recruit their animals on it luxuriant pas turage afier their long journey, and prepare for the hard travel along the comp tratively steril banks of the l'p;v r Columbia." "On tilt -Jo I we had approached within Fornr-thmg ovrr a mile of the Sli os'iOiicc Village, when suddenly a single horseman emerged from it at full speed, fol lowed bv another, and an ti; r in rapid sucee-sion ; nnd then party after party poured into the plain, un til, when the "foremost rider reached us, all the whole intervening plain w-as occupied by a lui-- of horse men, which came charging d vn upn us with guns ml naked sword', lances and bows and arrows In d.ans entirely naked, and warriors fully dressed for war, with the long tvl streamers of their war bon nets reaching nearly to the groundall mingled to gether in the bravery of savage warfare. They had been thrown into a sudden tumult by the appearance of our tlag, wiii !i, among the; people, is regarded n an cmui b!cm of hostihtv; it usually be.ng borne by the Sioux and th: neighboring mountain In-lnns v. l.cn they come here to war; and wc had accordingly Im en mistaken for a bodv of their enemies. A few word from the chief piicted the excitement ; and the whole band, increasing every mom-nt in number, escorted us to their encampment, where the chief pointed out a place fr us to encamp, n-vir his own ldge, a ml mad; known our purpose in visaing the village. In a very short time we purchased eight horses, for which we gave in exchange blankets, red and blue cloth, beads knives and too m o, an i the u-u al other crtielesof Indian tra .:. We obtained from them nN a consdcrable ijuantity of berries of d liferent kind-, anion' which service berries were the m t nbumhut ; aul several kinds of roots and seed , w hieb we could cat with nleas ire, as ;itiv km 1 of vegetable f i. was gratifying to us. I ate here, b-r he br-t time, the ,'tixii'i, oVfro root, (r tiiritni'i ninlis,) the -rin ijde nhhle root ani' ng the Indians who in hibit the tipp'-r waters of tlie streams on the western pide of the mountains. It has a very strong and re markably peculiar t: t - and o! r, whieh I can com pare to no oMkt vegetable tint I am anpiaintcd with, and which to some persons ir e.treu'e!y odensive. It was characterized hv .Mr. 1V'is as th" ni 'st horrid fod he had ever put in his mouth ; and when, in the evening, one of the chiefs sent Ids wife to me with a portion which she hail pre-nred as a delicacy to re gale us, the odor ifiim dia'dy drove him out f the lodge; and frepi"iitly afterwards he u.?ed tj big that when those wh liked it had taken what they desired, it might be ont away. To others however, the tate is rather an agreeable one, and I wasafter- wards alwavs glad when it f rrued an addition to our scanty meals. It is full of nutrim-nt ; and in its un prepared s'ate is said by t.he Indians to have very Mrong poisonous qualities, of which it is deprived by a peculiar process, being baked m the ground for about two days. On the north fork of the Platte : 44 In the precipitous blurts were di;daycd a succes sion of strata containing fossil veret a(le remains, and several beds of coal. In some of th" beds the coal did not appear to be perfectly mineralized ; nnd in 8 tne of tlie seams it was compact and remarkably lustrous.
