Therefore, if thou dost worthy prove, I cannot choose but give thee love. " Honor thee ! " By her reverence The truest woman best is known ; She needs must honor where she finds _ A nature loftier than her own ; ME I shall not turn from thee away, ^ Unless I find my idol clay ! « Obey ! " Doth not the stronger will The weaker govern and restrain ? Most sweet obedience woman yields Where wisdom, power and manhood reign. I'll give thee, if thou canst control The meek submission of my soul ! Henceforward all mv life shall be Moulded and fashioned by thine own ; If wisdom, power and constancy In nil thy words and deeds are shown; Whether my vow be yea or nay,! I'll "love, and honor, and obey." —[PbŒbe Cary in tbe N. Y. Home Journal. Description of Surprise Valley. [Mr. J. H. Slater kindly handed us the fol lowing description of a beautiful valley«*in the southern portion of Idaho Territory, re ceived by him recently from a friend. It has been but little explored until this past Fall, hostile Indians having long made it a favorite resort after their murderous raids upon ad joining settlements. It will be settled up by hardy pioneers next Spring, who will defend their possessions if necessary with strong arms and trusty rifles. —Ed.] Surprise Valley is about one hundred miles northeast of Honey Lake Valley. It is about seventy-five miles in length, and from five to twenty miles\in width. It is the finest valley -of land and grass that I ever saw in mry life. The valley runs nearly due north and south. There are three lakes in the valley, each near twenty miles in length, and from three to ten miles in width ; they are all salt, as there is no outlet to them. The lakes He near the east range of mountains, extending the flail length of the valley ; this range of mount ains extend the entire length of the valley between the lakes and tbe desert bordering •on the Humboldt River. The mountains on the east are desritute of vegetation or timber. The good land of the valley exiends the en tire length of all the lakes on the west side, adjoining the west range of mountains which constitute the divide between Surprise and Goose Lake valleys. It is about twenty-five miles across this west range from Surprise to Goose Lake valley, which is also a fine, large valley, well supplied with good timber. The land is good in Goose Lake Valley, and will be settled considerably next Summer. I will try to raise grapes in Surprise Valley next Summer ; think I will succeed. But little snow falls in the valley, and it seldom lies any great length of time. There aré probably one hundred creeks of elear, cold water running across and into the valley from the mountains on the west side ; there are also several warm springs. This much I can say—for good land, grass or meadow land, good water and water power, I have never seen any country in my life to compare with Surprise Valley. Thousands of acres of grass, wi[d rye, timothy, redtop and clover that would cut three tons to the acre, cover the valley, and in many places the grass is so high that persons horseback cannot see each other fifty yards apart. There is any amount of prairie chickens, sage bens, ducks and geese, quails, rabbits, deer, mountain sheep and bear. Fruit—wild plums, choke cherries, and elder berries in any quantity. Timber— pine, cedar, spruce, tamarack, mountain mahogany, and various other kind3, on the mountains to the west from three to five miles distant. S. M. Farmer. September 6th, 1864. * It has been decided by the London "Jockey Club," that shaking ''ands is the genteel thing, and furtherr ''»t in order to pro tect ladies from t mce of having to return the bowp who may choose to take off ' v in public, the English '°à of ladies bow ;oow this iu Eastern iSTews. The telegraph has furnished little intelli gence during the week, and that of but little importance. Richmond papers say Sherman is marching ou Macon, his advance being near the city. Gen. Gustave Smith is with Howell Cobb's force, defending the city—the' papers think they can hold it. Sherman captured a por tion of the Georgia Legislature at Griffin. The Tennessee river is lined with rebel pick ets. Forrest has a pontoon across the Cbick awa. Hood is reported at Florence preparing to march on Pulaski and Cumberland Gap. He i 3 35,000 strong, with thirty-seven pieces of artillery. Breckinridge is at Strawberry Plain threatening Knoxville. He was- five miles from the Gap. Kentucky fears another raid and a strong force under Burbridge is on the Kentucky border. Grant bas been heav ily reinforced. Blockade running at Charles ton is brisk. Beanregard is at Corinth. Everything quiet in the Shenandoah Valley. Government has issued a proclamation for bidding exportation, or carrying inland of arms or ammunition. A raid is feared from Canada. Grant, in an interview with Scott, said " the Confederacy is a mere shell and Sherman will prove it." The answer to the question whether ninety days would close the war, he said, " I am not a ninety days' man, but we shall see what ßhall happen in six months." A Profane Darkey.— A humane lady in the west of Ohio, during the rush of contra bands thither, took pity on a poor ragged boy of a decidedly dArk complexion, and concluded to give him a home in her family. After being decently clothed, Bud was as happy as a rebel in a Union prison, and soon was as fat ns a prize pig. The good woman was pleased with her success, and all went on swimmingly until one day she heard him use the Lord's name in anything but a rever ent manner. Calling Bud to her side she proceeded to lecture him upon the enormity of the deed, telling him that he would cer tainly go to Tophet unless he stopped his swearing. " What kind of a place am dat?" "It i^ a lake of fire and brimstone." " Fiah and brimstone, Missus?" "Yes, and you will be put into it and burned forever and ever." " But poor Bud burn all up, Misses 1" " No you won't ; you will keep burning but never be consumed." ^ " But I neber could stand it !" "You will have to stand it," replied the woman, somewhat at a loss for words to make him understand her meaning. " Well," replied, the juvenile contraband, " if I kin stand it, I don't care a d—m 1" and immediately commenced to whistle "Down in Dixie." New Gold an(kSilver Mining Companies. —The stock herders in the following Gold and Silver Mining Companies, yesterday held meetings in this city and elected Directors a3 follows : Alabama—J. C. Hawthorne, J. A. Chap man, G. L. Curry, Jas. B. Stephens, A. Si. Loryea, A. D. Fitch. Ophir of Idaho—A. C. Ripley, George L. Curry, L. R. Martin, P. G. Stewart, C. H. Larrabee. War Eagle—E. W.

L. Norden Secretary. The Alabama, Ophir of Idaho and War Eagle are three well known and rich ledges situated in Owyhee county, Idaho Territory, and the ground own ed by these incorporators is discovery ground, except in the case of- the War Eagle, exten sions of which belonging to the company, are fully equal to the discovery claim. Dis interested persons, who have been on the spot assure us that the work done on these ledges has proven them to be very valuable. Specimens can be seen at the office of Gov. Curry, one of our well known citizens, who acts as agent for these and other incorpora tions at Owyhee.—[Oregonian, 22d ult. Duping the North—Abolition Prédic tions. —These predictions are summed up thus : 1861— A tew brief months will bring the rebellion to a close. 1862— A few brief months will bring the rebellion to a close. 1863— A few brief months will brirfg the rebellion to a close. 1864— A few brief months will bring the r ebellion to a close.

[To be continued.] ^A Friendly Little Article.— We are told by Alphonso Karr, that " Friendship between two women is a plot against the third." We deny it, as we always make a point of deny ing all spiteful things that are said against the beautiful sex. And what is the friend ship between two men, we should like to know? If we had the inclination to be cyn ical, under tbe deceitful notion that we were being extremely clever, we might answer " Friendship between two men is a continual struggle as to which of the two shall do the other." We are afraid we are not the only person in this world that labors under the melancholy conceit that, to be clever, we have only to be cynical. ^'■Advertisements, to insureinsertiort, must be hand ed in as early as Thursday, and the number of insertions desired should be noted on the margin.
