COMMUNICATIONS.
[From our Regular Correspondent.]
Letter from the Backwoods of Maine.
ATo. 5—From Kineo to Katahdin.
To the Editors of the Press :
A* we Railed from the weRt shore of Mud
Pond, we left, “Old Donnel” standing near hit
own canoe. He held his ragged woolen cap
in his hand and presented a most ludicrous
appearance.
“Isn't it strange.” said one of our guides,
“that ‘Dirty Donnel’ should dress and look as
he does! He is comfortably well off, and is
well educated, but he will wear those old rags
and go about, with no care for anybody.”
Who is he, and where did he come from ?
were questions instantly asked.
“Oh, I didn't know till last winter, when I
had just come in from Caucomgomoc, where
I'd been hunting,” continued the guide; “I
didn't know anything about him, except that
he was a lazy, dirty, ragged vagationd. One
night, after we'd got back from our hunt, we
found ‘Old Donnel" at ’Suncook, and we got
him a little over Uie bay and then we pumped
him. He was unwilling to say much at first,
but pretty soon he got warmed up and let ou.
And such talk I never heard in or out of the
woods. He didn't swear a d—n, all the time
he was talking about the old Parish in Scot
land. where he was brought up. He was a
schoolmaster there, and got in love with one
of his scholars. She was the daughter of a
pretty wealthy man, aud he was better off
still. But the old folks were against his hav
ing of her, and he couldn't get her, and he took
to drinkin’, and came over here, ami that's all
I remember. Some say she followed him.”
Poor old Donald! Your story is the same
as we have read in old hooks, and in the nov
els of to-day. A broken life ft-om crushed
hopes. Your rags aud your seclusion are ex
plained.
“In his history is a good, long Ledger story,”
said Quip. “Cobb, Sylvanus Junior, ring for
the muse of light, literature: here is material
enough in Old Donald for thirty “To be con- ;
tinueds.”
As we drew our birches over into the outlet,
there was Old Donald watching still. Home
less and nncared for, and who is to blame ?—
The broken faith!
I hat old fellow, said onr guide, as we
sailed down the stream into Chamberlain, “has
got three barrels of the finest furs on any of
the lakes. He could get several hundred dol
lars for them now, but he won't sell them, for
he Is keeping them against he gets too old to
take care of himseif. Once he went up to
Boston with a lot of furs, and sold them to one
of the best furriers, but he came home as
drunk as ever and didn't have a cent. He says
he’ll never go out into the States again because
the boys are so unmannerly. But I guess it is
because he saw so many women-folks. Women
kind of take hold of old fellows, especially
when they get snubbed iu early courtln.’ ”
The guide is philosophical, truly. Alter a
few more strokes of the paddle, we came on
the waters of Chamberlain I.ake, or Apmoog- ;
enagamook, iu the Indian. The barbarous
word ha* great significance. It means “the
water having an outlet on the side.” Telos
Lake, south-east from us, used to be the south
eastern limit of SL John water; but a “cut”
has now been mude iu such a way that the
present limit of the water is the Middle of
Chamberlain Lake.
It was discovered that Telos was higher than
Webster Lake, and Penobscot enterprise seeing
this, built a canal from one lake to the other,
and allowed the water from Chamberlain to
pass through Telos into the East branch of the
river Penobscot. But the water in Chamber
lain does not all run through the lower mouth.
On the contrary, it presents the anomaly of a
lake feeding two rivers — the one running
North, and the other finding its way South.— I
So that a couple of drops of water, taking leave j
of each other in the middle of the lake, may
pursue different journies, one of them going
into the Bay of Fundy, the other into the Bay
of Penobscot. Imagine them meeting after 1
such a journey; by some chance meeting as j
neighborly drops In a rainbow. We have heard
of “babbling brooks,” and “laughing waters,”
so that if drops also could talk, these two
would have a strange story tojtell. Practically |
this diversion of Alleguash water into the Pe
nobscot, gave to Bangor a great amount of
tiuilwr, which had previously gone into the
deal market of St. John city. The construc
tion of the canal was a costly, but a very re
munerative enterprise, and reflects great cred
it upon the proprietors and executors of the .
work. By making a dam of the foot of
Churchill Lake, and one at Engle Lake, as
well as having a lock at Chamberlain, they
were able to take logs from the lower point,
and thus secure them for our market. Two or
three years ago, the dam at the foot of Church
ill gave way, and has thus temporarily sus
pended lumbering operation* in that vicinity.
But it is to lie sincerely hoped that the sus
pension of the business is merely temporary,
and that it will soon be resumed. Lumbering
on the lakes demands great outlays, but yields
immense profits. As some of the results of
the lumbering on Chamberlain, and beyond,
we see before us a fine farm on the other side
of the lake. As we approach it across the
width of Chamberlain, we can distinctly see
the buildings, and newly-sown crops.
A wind has sprung up from the Northwest
and has caused a pretty good swell on the
Lake. But though our frail canoe tossed
like a cork on the water, and though the water
is often tossed in spray over the bow, we can
feel no fear. There is a greater assurance of
safety in the fragile shell than in any boat of
similar sire. We take the waves “quartering,”
that is, strike them a little sideways and the
canoe can be propelled quite fast against the
sea. It is only three miles across the Lake,
and the distance is growing less every minute.
Why don’t we see people at work on the farm ?
there is not a person in sight!
Soon we have finished the crossing and draw
the birches up on the water-worn rocks at the
landing. Near this landing is a storehouse,
and. opposite the store, is a large building
which is now also devoted to farm purposes,
although formerly it was used for keeping sup
plies for lumbermen. The house itself is some
distance from the water's edge and is located
on a fine eminence commanding a good view
of the Southern and middle part of the Lake.
There is no one about the house, so we enter
in order to see if the place is deserted. Going
through the entry and great room, we arrive
at the kitchen. Here is the same sprightly
cook we saw last year, and he has the same re
served welcome for us. He is plainly glad to
see somebody from the world but doesn't want
to say so. “Where is Mr. Locke ?” “Gone
'down river after supplies ami he'll l>e back
next month.” “Where are all the men?”
“Ah they are over in the field by 'Indian
Pond.’ ”
" ny in the world doesn t he ask for news ?
He must know that we are right from Chesun
cook. and henee are right from the world. Per
haps he has become weaned from newspapers
and the telegraph.
While he is preparing dinner, we will stroll
over the great hill and enjoy the scenery. It
is at this point that we get such a splendid
view of Mt. Katalidin. We are looking at it
from the Northwest and are fully convinced
of a grand mistake in the otherwise correct
map of Mr. Chase. If you will look on your
new State map at the square devoted to the
height* of various mountains, you will notice,
side and side with Katahdin, a mountain, of
great height, called Wasaataquoiek. Now the
fact is, there is no such mountains at the North
or at the South, or at the West of Mt. Kat ih
din. I trust I am specific in this declaration,
for there can bo no greater mistake than to
suppose that Katahdin has any such rival in
the State. There are only two mountains
which could cause any such mistake, one of
them is the lower spur ofMt. Katalidin itself,
and the other is a mountain of 3000 ft. height,
North of the great Katahdin. I um sorry to
see that the transcriber of Chase's map has al
lowed this error to escape his notice. The
true Wassalaquoik mountain, is an eminence
of 1500 ft. and we cross it on our way to Mt.
Katahdin, from the "Hunt farm.” The Moun
tain traced on the map at Wassataquoik is the
one named, last year, by Professor Hitchcock,
of the Scientific Survey. He called it by the
appropriate name, “Pomola.”
And having thus made this correction in
Mr. Chase's new State map. let me say that
after having used it in long joumies through
Maine, I have found it to lie exceedingly ac
curate, and worthy of the most perfect confi
dence. Even the curves in the ltlver St. John
were recorded with faithfulness, and we were
unable to detect more than trivial errors and
these unworthy of notice.
1 ms digression nas carried me far away
from the hill behind Chamberlain Farmhouse,
On the left we can see very distinctly the Sc
hools Mountains, so well described in Dr. Jack
son's Report, and we have a good view of
Chases's Mountain, a little further east. It
will be remembered by me to give a brief ac
count of the interesting history of this Hill of
Refuge, when we have wandered down as far
as the mouth of the Sehoois. Indian Pond lies
at our extreme left, and is a fine sheet of wa
ter. so large that it could lie, with equal pro
priety, called a lake. According to the map
the inlet of Indian is not far from Eagle Lake,
and thus it makes the third side of the trinn
gle of lakes. E. S. Coe, Esq., of Bangor, is
the proprietor of this farm, and he deserves
the thanks of summer tourists for having thus
afforded them a depot for replenishing their
supplies. Mr. Coe, with Mr. Pingree of Sa
lem, and Mr. Dunn of Oldtowu, contributed
largely by their latmrs and influence to the
construction of the magnifleent dams and locks
on the chain of lakes. Although this enter
prise was at first looked at by many as a waste
of money, and afterwards regarded by St John
lumbermen with suspicion and ltad feeling, it
was carefully undertaken and successfully ac
complished. The fine farm is engaged in rais
ing oats and hay for the cattle employed in
the winter lumbering.
The tin horn is calling us to dinner, Let us
see what the cook has ready for our hungry
appetite. Excuse me, dear Press, if I shut
the door. G.

A boon in use a sufficient length of time to -how
that it giv«*s entire satisfaction and actually is the
more valued the more it is used.
This invention is a step in advance of all others in
the Spring Bui department, embracing a little more
of their exeelrencies, and yet happily overcoming all
their defects. It is flexible as hair,’ and yet so recu
perative as to bring itself into ptacc with great facili
ty. It is adapted to the invalid, the aged and old.
and all who linger in suffering and weakness. Thev
are made of good material warranted strong and du

THE GREAT INDIAN REMEDY
FOR FEMALES.
D*. MAT1ISONS INDIAN KMMKNAlitHil'E.
This celebrated Female Medicine,
possessing virtue* unknown of any
thing else of the kind, and proving
effectual after all others have failed,
is designed for both married and
*inols i.aimer, and is the very best
thing known for the purpose, as it
will bring on the monthly sickness
in cases of obstruction, after all other
remedies of the kind have beeu tried
in vain.
SJTOver 2000 BOTTLES have
now been sold without a tingle fail
ure when taken as directed, and with
out the least injury to heaith in any
rate.
It is put up in bottles of three dif
ferent srrengths with fall directions
for using, and sent by express, closely sealed, to all
parts of the country.
Trices.—Full strength. *10; Half Strength, 95;
Quarter Strength. 93liar bottle.
IV Remember! This medicine is designed ex
pressly for Obstinate Cases, which all other rem
edies of the kind have failed to cure; also that it is
warranted as represented in every respect, or the
price will be refunded.
IV-BEWAREOF IMITATIONS! Neiegenuine
and warranted unless purchased directly of OR. M.
at his REMEDIAL INSTITUTE FOR SPECIAL
DISEASES. No. 2H Union Street. Providence, It. I.
cr-r his siH-ciality embraces ail disease* of a pri
rate nature both of MEN amt WOMEN, by a regu
larly educated physician of twenty years' practice,
giving bis whole attention to them.
tV** ’onsultations by letter or otherwise are strictly
confidential, and medicines will be sent bv Express,
secure from observation, to all parts of tne United
States. Also, accommodation* for LADIES from
abroad wishing for a secure and quiet Retreat, with
good care until restored to health.
CAUTION.—It has been estimated that over two
hundred thousand dollars are paid to swindling
quacks annually, in New England alone, without any
benefit to th**se who pay it. Most of this sum comes
out of a class of persons w ho are the least able to lose
it, but once paid they can never get it back, and they
are compelled to suffer the wroug in silence, uot dar
ing to expose the cheat for fear of exposing them
selves. All t his comes from t rusting, without inquiry,
to men who are alike destitute or honor, character,
and skill, and whose only recommendation is their
own talse and extravagaut assertions, in praise of
themselves. If. therefore, you would avoid being
humbugged, take no man's word, no matter what his
professions are, but MAKE INQUIRY:—it will cost
you nothing, and may save you many regrets; for as
advertising physicians, in nine cases out of teu are
bogus, there is no safety in trusting any of them, un
it*.** you know who and what they are.
|V“Hr. M. will wud free, bv enclosing one stamp
as above, a 1'aniphlct on DISEASES OF WOMEN,
and on Private /Hseasrs generally; giving roost fall
information, with the most undoubted references and
testimonials, without which no advertising physician
or medicine of this kind is deserving of any confi
dence WHATEVER.
