Weesley lhode W. F. F. Kirkwood and Geo. "ons. Each of these gentlemen have miiost c<(,-clent fatrn, , and are enjoying their vo ltions wijtl brigh ter prospects than ever. They have g'oo( lIouses, anid better fences 1n1Ol(d their farms than we have noticed hnywhliere on our route. Mr. 0. G. Smith Iro0. are loc'ate4 at. the fi ot of t11(hl lenc:h Nlad, and have at g ((1d d welling and out in provemecnts. About half way iup the hill, and lnt a huti(ldred yards from tlhe house, a splendid little sp 'ing lbursts outt ;lad flows lthrough the yards, affording a imost excel lent site for a daiiry rancilC. We foulid .ir. (,eo. Lyons breaking ,round on his new ranhl. Mir. LT. is one of those lucky fatrmers \\ho has recently taken to his assistance a life partner. lie noow has 8lil that 1 man (1. uldl wish tO make him hap py-a herd of stoek, grazing at leisure up on the hills, a well ihiprovedl farm ind home and a companion i to simarle it with him. Mr. 1. A. fMaynard has a farm which is to be very ltclh ai(hllir. His d(welling is sit nated on the slo)p)e, of the hill, and snrround ed by shrublcry and shade trees. Ie is eln gaging to It consiiderabl)e extent in the dai ry business, milking twenty-foillr cows. llis clurn is ru11i by3 water power. Hiis sta bles are substauti:ll, and built aus if for ser vice and durability. We noticed ini his pas tllre solve line t1lorotghbil)red stock, alllnollg which was the noted St. Nicholas bull. 3r. M. A. Switzer has just completed an addition to his d welling, which adds nilc:l to the beauty of his furml. There is a: pret tylittle stlreami coursing through his yard, along whidihi are growing clusters of long cottonwood trees, forlnillg a grove mutch like those of old settled States. Ills ftl'iilh is located near the river, and is well improved. lie is plhtillng a large crop of wheat and oa ts. Mr. II, N. Bull lhas a well improved farm and home. Thie grain drills, plows and farm machinery about his place are enough to insure us of his permanence and prosper ity. Mr. ilaiden, whose farm is about midway between the hills and river, is one of the first locations taken in the valley. It is well improved and beautifully located. WV. F. Kirkwood, who is one of the fore miost stock-men of the country, has two farms which are being cultivated, and a large herd of stock. gWe met him in the field, and did not visit his home, and cannot speak of it. Mr. 31. D. Jefferis is another large stock grower, whose home we (lid not visit, hav ing met hinm on his way to the upper part of the valley, where he was going to attend to his stock. Mr. Wesley Rhodes, whose pleasant home is near the center ot the valley, is, we be lieve, the only one of the above gentlemen who is on the,bachelors list. With every comutort except this, it appears strange that he does not improve the opportunity by forming a copartnership with some of the fair ones of the neighborhood. This little settlement which only covens about twenty-four square miles, appear to be the happiest and most .comfortable peo ple we have met. They have two school houses, in which they have schools about half of each year. They also have a flour Ishing grange here, "mtd have recently fin ished a large grange hall, which cost nearly $1,000. It is 32x52, with a fourteen foot ceiling. We are informed that they live agreeably--have no neighborhood quarrels, or.jealousies. All belong to the grange and eiioy eac:; others society, except two or three who mightin some countries be term ed selfish and narrow-minded, but it woulld be wrong iu us to suppose that any such thing as narrow-mindness existed in a iighborhood made up with such clever people, as it was our pleasure to enjoy the 8oclety of during our briestay upon this valley. WILi. TERRITORIAL NEWS. From the Herald. Davenport, Ray & Co. have sold 1,500 heaI1 of sheep, all ewes, to Gover'nor Pitts, to be delivered in September.

DRAM sliiops are breaks on the sea of life -there the brightest of human prospects are often stranded. WHEN we acknowledge that drunkenness is a disease, let us not forget that it is also a sin. No man is forced to become a drunk ard; he drinks to excess with his eyes open, with his hands free, with his conscience up braiding him, until he drowns it in the bowl. He voluntarily surrenders his reason, his taste, his. judgment, his health, hi clharac ter, and his conscience on the altar of appe tite; and is not that a sin ? He knows that his habits of indulgence will disqualify him for the performance of the duties of child, husband, parent, and citizen, and deaden the faculties which should elevate him above the dumb beast. They intensify and quick en all the animal and brutal instincts of de graded humanity ; and is not that a sin ? A. J.
