A WOMAN'S ANSWER.
" Love thee ! " Thou canst not ask of me
So freely as I fain would give ;
'Tis woman's great necessity
To love so loug as she can live.
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."

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.

The telegraph has furnished little intelli
gence during the week, and that of but little
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
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
" 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

are fully equal to the discovery claim. Dis
interested persons, who have been on the

^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.
