Such, te brief, ia en outline of the past and present condition ?f tho valley of the Shenaudoah. The valley proper include* all that extensive tract of country which in bounded on tho east by the Blue Ridge wiouutalne, and on the west by the Great North, l.ittlc Morth and other mountain*. Iho mountains run north ?ant and southwest. The Sbeoando^ river, n stream of ?oosiderable magnitude, rises in the Little North moun tain, and flows for a diet men of about one hundred miles. In a northeasterly direction, until it empties lUe f into the Potomac at Harper's Kerry. The width of the ?alley varies oourldurably. Ia some places, aa at Sires bnrg and Fluber's bill, It is but a few miles wide, while at other places the mountains on either side sink away balow the horizon, and nothing but soma of the lofitcsuJ peaks are visible.

White farm Steads and resiJonoes or greater pretentions dot the whole valley at tutor vals of . few ?lien Along the tine macadamized turnpike arc towns sail villages. Vast tracts of land clearod for cultivation; patches of woodland, where the locust, whits oak, pine, ^ hickory and other trees grow to an Immense height, ?mall streams fljwing through the valley in every dlree tion, sparkling in the sunsbhie lileo threads of silver; green ?elds and lofty mountains are all features peculiar to this highly favored section of our land, la addition to Its other numerous advantages It Is also an immense lime ?tone district. The stones are gatbored in heaps and burned, and the ashes applied to the land as a fertilizer. It is on this account that *uch productive crops ara rained In the valley. Game was formerly very abundant here, and many a Moody fight took piuce In the valley between the early settlers and the Indians beforo the red ?en were finally driven from their favorite ha ,tiog ground. Quail is still to be touud in considerable aum ber*, and not onfroqnentiy a startled rabbit causes quite ? commotion by dashing frantically through our camps. W.nchestcr, one of tho principal towns m the valley, and which, before the war broke out, contained a popu lation of five thousand people, was commenced in tho year 1752. Twenty years before tbnt time it contained but two oabine. Now It has two Presbyterian churches, ?no Catholic chapel, two M?tnodi*t meeting houses, n splendid Eplrcopal cbnrch. the baptists have a meeting hon e, alio the German Lutherans, and the Friends have ? neat brtck building.
