No. ^—From Kinro to Kalahdin. Dear Press: — In my last letter I was speaking of a French sword we found on the shores of Lake Telos. Its history is conjec tural. Whether it is a sword belonging to the age of the French and Indian wars, or to a lat er period, is a matter entirely of guesswork. But Its discovery excited our curiosity to know something of its owner, and the service in which the arm was used. One thing is cer tain, this lake formed one part of the great highway over which the Indians, for years and years, bad found their way to Canada and home again. But there are other records of past ages on the shores of Lake Telos. Half way down its eastern side we came upon a line locality of fossil shells. These, in the hands of experts, soon told their story of long ages of the past; and we couM know their history, when that of the sword was undiscoverable. Let no one pass over the waters of this lake without stopping for an hour, at least, at the monument of fossils on the rocky shore, to look upon the distinct and unmistakable rec ord of the Sandstone. As I have said in a former communication the waters of this lake are higher than those of the east branch ol the river Penobscot.— The experienced lumbermen of the river saw this fact, and availed themselves of it A ca nal was cut between the lake and the waters of the Penobscot, thus allowing the lake-water to flow towards the South instead of into the St. John, as it had done previously. Of course this gave the lumbermen greater fields for "vir, aim mil' ll uicicaucu UIC aiuuuill U1 luill ber sold in Bangor. To revert to the canal. Strange to say, it is cut in the old bed of the river which must have formerly connected Te ios and Webster Lakes, but which was stopped up by the accumulations of sand and gravel at the outlet Thus the new channel formed by art, is Identical with the natural one of, jier haps, thousands of years ago. Webster Lake, into which the water from Telos flows, is a small round sheet of water, remarkable only lor its birds of evil omen. On the day we passed over the lake these pro phetic birds, the loons, were making their sad complaint of coming foul weather, and made so much ado about the lowering of the clouds, or something else, that we were compelled, al most in spite of ourselves, to see if their proph ecies came true. Many of the guides on Moosehead say that the wind bringing a storm always comes from the quarter into which the loon flies screaming, and they consider it a sure slgu of approaching rain. Others regard the loon a veritable Cassandra among the birds, a false prophetess. Whether the loon uses a barometer, or whether it has one of the “Weather Indicators" on hand, (‘for particulars send a stamp to <Sc.’) or whether the seasons have been so carefully studied by it that the weather is read as a book is read, no one can telL Certainly it is true that the loon prophecies correctly as it flies toward the North, screaming in its mournful monotone, and the weather follow's. But is it more strange that this bird should be suscepti ble to those changes of the atmosphere which are indicated by the Aneroid, or the Electrom eter, than that a little plant, growing plenti fully on York cliflft, should fold its purple pet als before a storm ? The meteorology of the animal omer uian man is yet unwritten. VYno will be the Smithson to order the many l'aets to be collated and arranged ? The stream flowing from Webster Lake has a broken and troubled course. The jagged rocks jn the bed of Webster-brook fret the wa ter into white foam before half its length is traversed, while the rest of t he way is compar atively quiet. We were obliged to have our luggage carried on a sled procured at Trout brook farm, to the shores of Second Lake,thus avoiding Webster stream entirely. Taking all things into consideration, a “carry” is not the best of the things of this life; in fact, it may be numbered among the evils. For even to think of a long walk through the woods of northern Maine, with ever so light a load, makes ones shoulders ache. It suggests mud, weariness and fretfulness from one end of the portage to the other; there is nothing pleasant in it. And so we were not sorry to place our knapsacks on the shores of Matagamonsis or Second Lake, to rest before we resumed our journey. It may give a good idea of the shades of our camp-life to present from my note-book a page describing our camp on this lake. We arrived at six o’clock P. M. tired, hungry and wet. The loons were true weath er-prophets, for it has rained hard to-day till pretty near sunset, when it now clears off with a cold wind. Louis is endeavoring to make a Are with some wet chips and the rest of the party are variously engaged, some in smoking, some in cutting wood, some in growling. I am trying to write a line or two but will wait till after supper, because we are all so cross, to-night Supper was not a success. The pork was done too much,the tea was cold, the bread was like yellow quartz containing beryl, so much saleratus had been used in Its manufacture. Poor cook, how he Is scolded to-night! But then the fellow might have, at least, w'ashed his hands before making bread! The ground is wet to-night and the fire ia disinclined to burn. But we are all sleepy,and I most of all. And we shall all go to rest to night peevish and homesick and not glad we came. Next day, A. M. Ugh! Good morn ing? Yes, but cold; miserable night of it The wind which was pretty high, even as early as seven last night blew a perfect gale at eleven o’clock; and down came our tent! The Arc was carried away piecemeal into the lake by the wind, and quenched. So we again laid down with no Are and no tent and shivered. All have the rheumatism this morning,-; and so on for a couple of pages more in my diary. The lights of camp-life we saw that very day w hen the sun came out, warm and rich in its goodness and its great charity to all mankind, the rays falling alike on the just and the un just. And the sunlight stilled the wind and glided the smooth lake. In the deep water of the opposite shore, we could see the black re flection of the shaded pines and spruces, and to tiie left of this we could plainly see the points at which the rays of reflection were bent, and the rays of refraction were broken. But nowhere could we find the “shadow in the water” of which the French painters talk; the water was too clear and crystalline, it was as air itself. In the beautiful light of this morning we sailed over the lake and down the winding thoroughfare of several miles, into the grand lake itself. This lake is one of peculiar interest. Jewel led with islands clothed with verdure on their summits, but having only a water exposure of dark and broken cliffs, and fringed with a somewhat characteristic vegetation, it is a lake worthy of classical story.1 But although these lakes may have been the scenes of fierce conflicts and of thrilling ro mantic adventures, their history is a blank. The Northern Indians, like the “Pirates of the East” had no historian to preserve the record of noble exploits and veil the crimes of differ ent generations. And therefore we can to-day, study only the present. Overhanging the southern part of the lake is a projecting spur of a mountain which has long been the admiration of those who have seen it, but it has never until within a year or two, borne any name at all. Last season, Pro fessor Hitchcock, the State Geologist, named it,very appropriately, Mount MaUgamon,since Matagamon is the name of the Lake of which the mountain stands a guardian. The moun tain presents a bold front to the south of the lake, being, in fact, as grim as Kineo itself and as unlike any other. I am anxiously and im patiently waiting to see some painting of this singular mountain that its beauties may J>e studied and appreciated by others who have never visited it Upon the islands of this lake we find a pe culiar conifer, the gray pine of our early ex plorer. Michaux. It is a tree of most singu lar habit, and is at once easily recognized from dwarfed individuals of other species of pine, by the almost prostrate form, and the leaves only an inch long. No visitor, however care less, can fail to notice this singular tree. These two marked peculiarities of the lake— the mountain and the pines—are only two of its many very pleasing features. Without slopping to speak of the many lilies upon the low shore of the eastern part; and the crimson floating-knobweed of almost every shallow little bay; and the black ducks,timor ous and cunning; passing by these and other things of interest at this the “Grand Lake,” we must now float down the East Branch of the Penobscot. The Penobscot River is, above Nicatou, divided into two branches, each of them large enough to claim a separate name. Upon the eastern one, we are now approaching tile “Forks,” and on our way shall see that the river well deserves the name “Rocky bottom.” Hardly a couple miles from Grand Lake I)am is the greatest place for trout in the State of Maine. There is a little brook finding its way into the river, and at its junction affords a place where trout can flourish better than in the river water alone. Here we fished for some time with fair success, until, the sport beginning to lag, one of the guides said— “Now I'll show you the Bill-fish brook.” So we crept slowly after him, among the alders which lined the shore, and soon heard his “hush-sh-sh.” Looking down through the alders, we could see a deep hole in the stream filled black with trout. We could hardly believe our eyes; but there were the fish, in such abundance that Isaak Walton would have been beside himself for joy. From that trout-liole we could catch the fish with a bare hook ! Think of such fishing as that, ye piscators who patiently whip a trout-brook for hours and hours, with your fancy rods and reels and creels and fussy flies, iu the faint hope of en ticing into your basket some injudicious fish icnuer yam. t* uu wuat degree oi coin- ! placency ami honesty can you say that the latter is the finer sport? Is it more scien tific ? If you do really think so, then please visit the Hill-fish brook, ami have your no tions of this subject modified, during this very summer. There are trout enough there for all tlie hooks in Bradford’s Boston store; enough for all angling comers. Sit under the black shades of Mount Mata gamon and the Traveller Mountain, and, with your hook and line, see for yourselves whether j it is not as exciting sport, this fishing for un sophisticated trout, as angling for those fish which have been educated to lie fastidious, so that they rise only at a fly!

Having introduced the “Anderson .Spring lied Bot tom” into mv house, after trial, I pronounce it to be an easy ami healthy bed. I am using several kinds of spring bed bottoms, but consider the Anderson Billy equal if not better than tin* best. N. J. DAVIS, Proprietor. We have introdneed several of the justly celebrat ed “Anderson Spring Bed Bottom” to our sleeping apartments. We give this spring bed bottom a deem ed preference over any and all othere we have ever used. Our guests s|>cak of them in the highest terms. We recommend their use to all hotel kee)>er8 who de sire the comfort of their guests. w d. McLaughlin & son. May 12,1863. Franklin House, Bangor, Me.

I have had the unspeakable pleasure of sleeping on one of the “Anderson Spring Bed Bottoms” for the last three weeks, and must say it far surpasses any thing 1 had anticipated.
