A H estern Parariise—There is
no 1*1 nee Like Home .
We have been leading General ('lis
ter s otfical dispatches detailing the inci
den:8 or the march and the active oper
ations of ids grand expedition to the
Black Hills in Dakota Territory. He has
carried his cavalry through fair fields
and pastures new, whete hitherto the
foot of the white man had not trial, nor
• lie white man's horse struck a spark
from the flinty rock with his iron hoof.
If but the half he tells us of this fairy
land be true, it excels all others in beau
ty aud grandeur, as well as in fertility
and material wealth. The picture he
draws is an enchanting ai d enticing one,
ami will cot fail to have a powerful in
fluence in stirring on rad venturous.voung
countrymen to seek their lortunes in
this new El Dorado—this Land or Flow
ers. After stating that oil the 20th of
July they had crossed the Belle Fourche
river aud moved through a very super
ior country, covered with fine timber,
and excellent grazing, lie tells us that
the following day they entered a valley,
which he thus describes :
We here found grass, water and wood
of the best quality, and m great ahun
dance. Un the following day we res
♦ d out march up this valley, which t had
explored several miles ihe preceding
evening, and which ied us by an easy as
cent almost southeast, After marching
ueurly twelve miles we encamped at
catl y hour in the same valley. This val
ley in one respect presented the most
wonderful as well as b autiful aspect
Its equal l have never seen, anil such,
too, was Hie testimony of oil who be
heb! i . 1 i no public or private park
have 1 ever r-een such a profus»; display
of llowers. Every step of our march that
day was annd flowers of the most exqui
site colors and perfume. So luxuriant in
growth were they that men plucked tDeni
without dismounting from the saddle.
Some belonged to new or unclassified
species. It was a strange, sight tu glance
back at the advancing cqlunpis of caval
ry, und behold the ipen with beuutiful
bouquets in tfieir hands, while Mie Ik ad
gear of their horses was decorated with
wreaths of flowers fit to crown a queen
of May Deeming it a most filling ap
pellation, I named this Fuirai Valley.
General Forsyth, at one of our halting
places, chosen at random, plucked seven
teen beautiful flowers belonging to dif
ferent species, and within a space of
twenty feet square. Phe same evening,
while sitting at the luess table, one of
the officers called attention to the carpet
of flowers strewn under our feet, and it
was suggested that it be determined how
mauy different flowers could be plucked
without leaving our seat at the dinner
table. Seven beautiful varieties were
thus gathered. Professor Donaldson,the
botanist of the expedition, estimated the
number of flowers in bloom in Floral
Valley at fifty, while an equal number
of varieties had bloomed or were y^t to
bloom. The number of trees, shrubs and
grasses wc«c tweuty five, making the
total flora of the » alley umbrae

the President smokes."
"Does he ever read the papers?"
"Oh, no, his secretary reads them all,

subject is not political. When politics
are touched he suddenly grows reserved
