The following beatiftal insemied suip
flnt is from the pea of COl. Mels.e,
written to the Ne Yerek iteAe h hem
Denver. The copy containivn it has
just eome to hand in one of the bek
malls. It gives expmesIa to ths.
tiors common to al on the irst view of
the sublimities of the Rocky Moutains,
and Is not inferior to DI' Iraelrs do
scription of a storm, held as a model of
descriptive composition :
Go where you wilt in this section, the
prospect is most charming, but all is
dwarfed by the indeseribable grandeur
of the mountains. We have read ad
Swritten volumes about the grandeur of
the Alps, but the world has only one
such view as is presented from the rell
ing prairie east of Denver. In bewil
dering sublimity none but itself is its
parallel. There may be isolated views
of the Alps as beautiful as any 20 miles
of the Rocky range, and the icy land of
Russian America has its St. Ellas, that
towers higher toward the heavens than
the highest of these, but here is present
ed, in one grand view, nearly 200 miles
of the Rocky Mountains, from beyond.
Pike's Peak far off to the south, thence
by the Spanish Peaks to Long's Peak,
and still on towa·l the north, until the
range is lost in the dimness of distance.
Black threatening clouds hung about
them when first I saw them, and added
to the peerless beauty of the scene.
Around Long's Peak the storm-king
seemed to be spell-bound or held an easy
captive, for he had no deliverance until
his heavy clouds had been discharged
and broken, and his thunderbolts drawn
in harmless violence. Far behind the
struggling tempest the setting sun was
casting his evening rays through the
tossing clouds, and fringing the .very
lightning with his matchless tints. On
either side of the storm he was reaching
out his light, flinging the silver lining
iwtunal thu p.0in0a almamAnta heabivkin in
out his ligiht, flinging the silver lining
around the raging elements, breaking in
refulgent splendor on the distant peaks,
and flashing in almost dazzling buEtlm.
cy upon their eternal smows. To the
north the sweeping snows, falling and
flitting in graceful waves, seemed to de
fy the lightning's erratic flash, while on
the south, the bow of promise illu
mined the heavens. It was the very
sublimity of moral and material gran
dem-a panorama that Geod alone
could have fashioned. The great Snowy
Range is the first to meet the eye.
and the observer inasusibly wanders
along its vast, ridged, and broken
sweep, until it is lost in the deep blue
vaulted dome on either side. It has no
two points alike, as if the Great Archi
teet meant to confuse the very concep
tions of men in this colossal masterpiece
of His creation. Yonder is a cluster of
peaks as if made up of huge inverted
icicles, and beside them it would seem
that gigantic snow-drifts, with their
unique and countless forms, had fallen
in. Here is a hillock of spotless white,
whose garments change not with the
srolving seasons, regular, gracethl,
rounding with apparent mathematical
precision until it finishes with its taper
ed cap of snow. There are deep ravines,
vast gorges, and rude, craggy peaks, as
if the earthquake had taken the Wet
ern world in its frenzied arms, and toss.
ed its mightiest rocks in wild disorder1
across the plains. Thus north and south,
as far as the eye can see, and for two
hundred miles toward the setting sun,
these vast, snow-clad monuments of om
nipotent power present their varied
beauties and surpassing grandeur, and I
turn from them only when the last ray
of the receding sun has parted with their
top-most crowns, and the mellow moon
light takes up the grateful task of dis
playing, through night's weary shadows,
this mute but most impressive tribate an
all-wise (God has reared to Himself.

aonors to the MIeamory of Judge
Wayne.
A Washington dispatch to the N. Y.
World, dated July 7th, says the Bar of
the Supreme Court of the District of
Columbia, Saturday afternoon, passed
resolutions consequent on the death of
Judge Wayne. One of them is as fol
lows :
Resolved, That we hbonor and admiretheem
inent judicial qualities, the great learning
spotless integrity, keen sense of justice and
agnal urbanity which distinguished the de
ceased during his long judicial career, and the
devoted patriotism manifested by him at the
most crtieal period of the history ef the
eountry.
Hon. Caleb Cushing, Mr. Bradley and
Chief Justice Cartter pronounced brief
eulogies. The last named said, "One of
Judge Wayne's characteristics was his
unfaltering belief in the perpetuity of
this nation, and he ever looked forward
through the gloom of war to the ultimate
triumph of the nation."
In the Criminal Court Saturday morn
ing, before proceeding with the Burratt
cae, (Czie Justice Carter being on te
bench, Mr. Carrington announced the
death of Associate Justice Wayne of the
Supreme Court, and said he thought it
due that this bar should pay a tribute of
respect to so eminent a jurids. He there
fore moved the appointment of a com
mittee of five members to prepare suitc
able resolutions to be presemented at the
meeting of the bar to be held this after
noon. The motion was agreed to, and
Judge Carter appnated Messe. Car
rington, Cushing, Pierrepont, Bradley
and Merrick the committee contem
plated.
The funeisl of Judge Wayne took
place thBs afternoon, dad was attended
by many persors of distinction.
