We don't smoke, but somewhere in the
deserted halls ol our memory we have
found the louowing beautiful lines. The
name of the author is unknown to us, but
we would not reeommeud any one to
claim them without good erounds or he
: ma' be treated as was one such clamaint
! m these columns not " long ago."
In the thoughtful gloom of his darkened
Sits the child of song and story,
And his heart is light for his pipe beams
And his dreams are all of glory.
Then smoke away 'till a golden ray
Lijrhts up the dawn of the morrow,
For a cheerful cigar like a shield will bar,
The blows of care and sorrow.
It warms the soul like the blushing bowl
With its rose red burden streaming,
Ana drowns it in bliss like the first warm
From the lips with rose buds teeming,
Then smoke away 'till a golden ray
Lights up the dawn of the morrow,
For a cheerful cigar like a shield will bar
The blows of care and sorrow.
In the forests grand of our native land
When the savage conllict ended,
The pipe of peace brought a sweet release
Jbrom toil and terror blendeu.
Then smoke away till a golden ray
Lights up the dawn of the morrow,
For a cheerful cigar like a shield will bar
The blows of care and sorrow.
The dark eyed train of the maids of Spain
'Neath their arbor shades trip lightly,
While a gleaming cigar like a new born
In the clasp of their lips burns brightly.
Then smoke away 'till a golden ray
Lights up the dawn of the morrow,
For a cheerful cigar like a shield will bar
The blows of care and sorrow.
Kixdness will conquer and over
come all prejudices. This perhaps
has never been better illustrated than
by the occupation of French territory
by German troops. The war was on-
gendered and brought en mainly
through hatred and jealousy. The
Germans were victorious and have
until recently held possession of
French territory by armed legions to
insure the payment of a large war
indemnity. That having been paid,
the troops left for home, but their
kindness to their conquered foe had
been so marked that they did not
leave a hated enemy but rather as
friends who had not understood each
other, but who by contact had proved
to each ether whether living on one
side or the other of tho Ehine, hu
manity is about tho same. So it
would be everywhere if we under
stood each other. Our hates are mostly
imaginary and misunderstandings
and quarrels could generally be avoid
ed if we would go frankly to each
other and ask and give explanations.
But it is too often the case, that a
slight grievance is magnified and
mischief makers are listened to until
a breach between those who should
be friends becomes irreconcilable.
Let the example the honest Germans
have given to the conquered 1 rench
be practiced more in our daily inter
course with our fellow-men, and the
heart-burnings and difficulties will
be materially lessened.
Pbivate advices from the com
mand of Major W. H. Brown inform
us that he was in the mountains
eager for the contest, and that it was
his intention to divide his command
into small parties and thoroughly
scour the country always keeping his
men within supporting distance. If
it is a human possibility to get those
murderers out of the mountains, Maj.
Brown will do it.
Oapt. Hancock informs us that
the good people of Phenix are erect
ing a substantial and convenient
school-house at that place. This is
the second school house built in that
county and splrs v.-oli for che in
telligence and enterprise of the people.
The citizens on the Sau Pedro in this
county have enough subscribed to
build a school-house und intend soon
to erect it.
A Glance at Belgium, Prussia, Ba

Vienna, Sunday, August 17. I
left London on Friday evening week,
came across by a one-horse steamer
sleeping in the rigging like an Amer
ican rooster should, I suppose touch'
ing a corner of Holland by daylight,
and reaching Antwerp (in Belgium)
too late for tho train. Did that old
commercial would-be rival of Loudon,
for a couple hours. It has a cele
brated Cathedral for tourists to gawk
about in for a few minutes, and a
population who recklessly revel in
the French language, to our annoy
ance and injury. Had they talked
pure ir arisian as l am used, to
should have enjoyed Brussells, .the
capital of the little kingdom, Owinjr
to the uncultivated style of their
Franch, I had to stay over night at
that place. Brussells is said to be a
miniature Paris, but it seemed a very
dull Saturday night. There are more
bearded females in Belgium than
would stock all the side-shows extant.
Architecturally, Brussells is attract
ive in spots, nothing altogether to go
mad over. 1 suppose they make gocd
lace there, just as Belfast makes lin
en, and lots ot it
From Brussells, the next point of
leading: interest, is Cologne. But the
country between, as riding through it,
pleased me more than the towns. Be
tween Liege and Verviers, m Bel
gium, there is some delightful scen
ery, ana everytuing in tne landscape
way possessed the French finishing
touches. No fences at all, except
those along the track, and a majority
of the cottages were curious speci
mens of rustic vorlr. Men and wo
men all look like a hard-worked, il
literate set devoted to the one pre
vailing feature of life in the old world,
that is, fight it out on the line of
their fathers before.
The train time gave us two hours
at Cologne, and a carriage ride
through its many narrow and strong-
smelling streets, was perhaps well
enough. Here is a still more cele
brated Cathedral an immense affair
truly ; but I am just getting a little
fatigued with looking at Christ cru
cified in so many miserable ways. I
am beginning to tnmk Le lias been
the worst murdered man ever heard
of in any country. The Virgiu Mary
has had to suffer likewise. But
enough of this at present. Cologne
is noted for its variety of smells. I
satished atter counting some
twenty or thirty in so short time.
The old walls of the town are still
formidable ruins. I have forgotten
to state that the most striking shift in
the scene so far, was that back at a
little station, west of Aix la Chapelle,
where the German element of this
country of speckled languages and
money, took possession of our train,
and went through our carpet-bags for
stray cigars, to find other perfumery.
I had not prepared for this imagi
nary boundary thinking the Ehine
was what separated the two neoples.
But now I am used to it all.
Well, I found the delightful rest
ing spot A was anxious tor at .Lon
don. It was at Godesberg, above Co
logne about twenty-four miles, and
just where the Rhine becomes poeti
cal, historical, ccc. Here are the
Seven (Dragon) Hills, with a rocky
height tipped with a more rocky ruin
of a castle and overlooking one of the
finest pictures of valley, river and
hills ; of peaceful villages wrapped
vines and studded with flowers.
The prettiest I have ever seen. To
get this view, you cross the river to
the west side, at tho village ot ls.ee
nigswinter ; then up the mountain just
back of my hotel at Godesberg is an old
tower of a castle, built on a little
mountain that stands out by itself.
From the window it don't look big-
er than a coffee-pot, but I found on
climbing up there, it was over one
hundred feet high. These castle
ruins are very deceptive that way.
Godesberg is a gem of a place quite
a resort : mineral springs, eve
tho lager beer and wine drank there j
the Sunday night I arrived, was the
" lion " of the town. Some sort of a
feast (or " fest ") was what ailed tho j
people of that place as well as the
old city ot Bonn three miles away
also gathered there. Music and
dancing also assisted in making this
Sunday evening rather enjoyable to a
stranger. I recruited up a day or so
and then came up the Ehine and up
the Main to Frankfort resting over
so as to reach early that quaintest
old town in all Germany ifurem
berg. But the river Ehine is all its
enthusiastic friends have painted it,
in my opinion. The castles are sum
cient m number and variety: the
river and hill-sides are large and rug
ged enough and cultivated to match,
and the legends of its by-gone days
come in good play for reading. You
may ask what a cultivated river is
like ? Well, it is not like the muddv,
crumbling shores of American streams
in general and particular, but a nav
igable river walled in all the way,
and every way improved and put
upon its good behavior. And its
steepest mountain sides are also wall
ed to the very summits with terraces
trained with grape vines, until they
look at a little distance like the sides
of a great scaly fish. Not a shovel
ful of soil is allowed to escape into
the river. But 1 can t do justice to
anything along this best of routes
from London to Vienna in this little
letter. Only if I Avere a Dutchman,
I would fight for tho Ehine only as a
thorough Dutchman could : if I were
a Frenchman, I would want a slice of
it on the same terms, if no other way
and if I were both, I would fight
with mysell about it. The case would
be like trying to have the prettiest
and lovhest ot women all to oneself,
without being as jealous as the devil
all the time.
Nuremberg is in Bavaria, but like
Frankfort, &c. after Bismark & Co.
cleaned out Austria a few years ago
in two rounas tnis old town must
bow to Prussian rule, though her
soldiery still wear their old uniform
a black squirrel's tail crawling up
over the back ot the head. Nuren-
berg is a doubly walled and castellated
city of ninety thousand, and as old
and odd as history and Dutch archi
tecture. I never could get done look
ing at it and wandering about m it ;
but had to give it up after two days
and one night. It has a museum of
antiquities equal to any, and several
old churches full of interesting things,
not to mention Virgin Mary & Co.
In short, after passing tho tunnel on
tho dividing ridge between the waters
of the Ehine and Danube the mur
dering of Christ continued with more
than arithmetical progression. Ho is
made use of as a scare-crow all
through the vineyards and other ag
ricultural scenery. I never knew
what a success He was at frightening
birds out of a potato-patch before.
But enough of this at present.
And now a word about tho rural
population en route. If tho French
were a rusty featured set, the Danu
bers of Dutchland at least, must be
seen to be appreciated. In fact, I
have seen them, and still can't do it.
lam as rough a specimen of the hea
then as there is now at large in any
country, and I cannot rise to the
beauty of seeing a woman swinging
the oldest style of scythe like a swarthy
son of a Hoosier, or a pick on a rail
road like a hair-toothed Irishman
from tho bogs. Tho German women
of the farming class carry baskets on
their backs as large as a hay-cock,
and they are altogether the veriest
Papago squaws of Europe only to
be equalled perhaps by the women of
Switzerland, where I have yet to go ;
so that neither the best of republics or
monarchies of Europe have anything
to brag of on the score of elevating
the lower orders. Tho squaws of
Germany do not, as do those of Arizo
na, carry their babies on their hips,
so far as I have seen. But I have
been on the other hand astonished at
the number of good looking women,
girls, &c. on this last route ever
since I left Belgium. "We don't see
many ladies in America of German
extraction, to go crazy over. All
along this line, however, iu the
towns, they are as numerous as in
New York, in proportion.
It is tho rule of the "tourist" to
take steamer at Passau, and come
down the Danube to Vienna. And it
is even moro interesting at least
grander than the Ehine. Who did
all this mighty work of agricultural
and navigation masonry ? But nei-
ther in Belgium nor thus far in the
German speaking lands, are there any
stone fences as in the British king
dom, and one may rightly infer that
the French and Dutch are natural
communists. They till the soil side
by side, and make mother earth look
like a great quilt wheat, onions,
oats and potatoes of neighbors blend
ing together more peacefully than the
people seem to, to "a lcoker-on in Vi
enna." The farm-houses of Dutch
land are villages of red, tile-covered
bee-hives, and the workers go out
miles around every day to make and
gather tho honey or hard-bread of
I have found less trouble in talk
ing Dutch so far in Germany, than
English in Ireland ; and a hotel bill
is much easier gotten over. I had a
skirmish yesterday afternoon, howev
er, worth recording, in the way of
sweet German accent ; and the hotel
account forthcoming, I never expect
to live to tell you of. You see I am in
Vienna now, and it is Exhibition
year. And trom a glimpse last eve
ning, the show is entirely too big for
the patronage. ' ' Hence "these tears."
The Krom Concentrator.
"We have received from Frank Moy-
er, agent for the Krom Dry Ore Con
centrator, a description of the ma
chine and also the results of working
ores by this process.
It is seldom that we pay any atten
tion to the thousands of new inven-'
tions for working ores, a large ma
jority of which are of no value, but
having a personal acquaintance with
the agent and a personal knowledge
of tho ores upon which this machine
is now operating with the most satis
factory results, we are inclined to be
lieve that the machine can be made
of good service to Arizona, in fact
that it is just what is needed, to at
once place low-grade base ore mines
on a paying foundation. Without
going into the particulars of the op
eration of the machine, it is said that
it can concentrate ores at a cost of 5
per ton ; twenty-five to thirty tons of
ore are concentrated into one ton of
pure metal, and by practical tests it
has been lound that only about 3 50
is lost or left in the tailings. This is"
done with air and no water is required,
except suihcient to run the machinery.
It requires but one-horse power to
run eight of the concentrators, and
each concentrator is said to be capa
ble of concentrating half a ton pet
hour. The machine measures five
feet in length, two feet in width,
three feet ten inches in length and
weighs 1100 pounds.
The following remarkable results
were obtained in working the ores of
the De Soto Mine in Nevada. The
assay value of the ore was 54 56.
Thirty tons were concentrated into
one ton, which was found to be worth
$1,662, and the tailings were found
to contain 3 53.
We were once interested in this
mino and are familiar with the ore it
contains, about five per cent, of base
metal, principally antimony, zinc and
lead, carrying 54 56 in silver, in the
form of black sulphuret. Such a
combination rendered the ore practi
cally worthless to tho owners, from
the fact that it was too lean in metals
to smelt and too base to amalgamate,
and the low grade of the ore would
not pay to ship or bear the expense of
water concentration. By this process
the net profit on this ore now being
worked, is found to be 37 per ton,
including the expense of concentra
tion and shipment, and excluding the
cost of mining.
Mr. Dyer, of the Indian Peaces Commis
sion, who is hero, says in tho recent war
with tho Modocs our soldiors only killed
four Modocs, whilo tho Modocs killed two
soldiers to each Modoo engaged m tno war.
We clip the above from The Alta
and it proves what we have before
said that if Gen. Crook had made so
bungling a job in conquering the
Apaches they would have annihilated
tho whole army of the United States.
We learn that Lieutenant Eckerson,
whom Major Brown promptly sent
after the Indians that stole stock at
Pueblo Viejo, followed them to their
camp on the Apacho reserve. He
showed a good deal of energy iii his
pursuit of them.
