Jesuit misHionaiies established missions nt the junction of the Gila and Colorado rivers 'in 1 744. In 170 another Catholic missionary explo red thin 1 region also; but Irom thia time it remained unknown to the civilized world till the establishment of Fort Yu ma in 1850 by order of our government. Fort Yuma ia 150 miles by the river Irom its mouth. The Hig Canon" of the Colorado was visited by the Spaniard at a place far above, in 1540. In the exH.tiiioi of Lieut. J. C. Ives, in 1857-'58,thm inter esting but uum desolate of all reo-j,,ii was very carefully explored. To t In valuable and truly graphic report bv member of that expedition, I nm in debted lor many of the statistic of this an icle.

"This stream" he says "is formed by the sur plus waters of the Colorado, which, oc casionally, during the suinimr freshet, overflows the banks and inns northward towards the lowest parts of the deserts, which are many feel below thu auifji-H level of the river." The ifiver is always charged with fine, inienreous sand tnd red clav. washed from its banks. Hence, its name "Colo rado" or Colored river.

The interest in the subject of narrow guige railroads has been greatly increas ed oy me success or the little Festiniog road, which is regarded as one of the most note worthy events of modern en gineering. The net revenue of this road or the year 1869 was 133,000, on a cap ital of 1180,000; and Mr. D. Aligny, a Nw York e ngiiuer, in commenting up on this result says: "The economy of the construction and equipment of a nariow guage road, two feet six inches, is im mense when compared wilh the cost ol a road four feat eight and a half inches. For a single track it is filly per cent, overan ordinary flat country, but in the mountains or mining districts the proportion increases to seventy five per cent, and more. In fact, a narrow guage road can be established, and will proye a paying concern, in countries so rough that no attempt would ever le made to construct a road of the usual guage. Narrow guage roads will accomplish a revolution in the railroad system of the United States." Iu Tennessee, Texas, Colorado, California, Kentucky aud west ern Virginia, the subject of nariow guage roud is agitated, and projects for their construction have in some instances assumed practical shape. The first road constructed ou the narrow guage princi ple will probably be built this winter to conneot the Hanging Itock region of the Ohio river with the Eastern Kentucky road ; and a narrow guage road is talk ed of to connect the mining district of Georgetown and Central City with Goldeu City and Denver, in Colorado. Besides the lighter cost of construction and the cheapness with which a road can bo worked, the saving of dead weight alone is very great. Thus the engine aud tender of the Festiniog road weigh but ten tons, against forty tons on the broad guage roads ; and it is estimated that the proportion of dead wieght is but 250 pounds for each passenger carri ed ou the Festiniog road, while on the broad guaga road it is nearly five bun dled pounds for each passenger. As tributary aud neighboring roads, these narrow guage railways wauld seem to be very efficient and economical. New York World. Stale and Farm DRY CATTLE YARDS. may for producing crops, it is certain that it is a very poor material tor cattle yards. 11 is sot 1, porous aud yielding. The rain that falls upon it saiiua.ies it with water like a sponge. The feet of the poor aniiiiaU are constantly wet, and the cold so received extends to then whole bodies. No human being can be comfortable wilh coiiliuual wet feel, nor is it possible long to remain iu a perfect slate of health under such circumstances; aud the same is true, though not per haps lo ibe same extent, with cattle. A lew years ago il was found that the horses on the New York city railroads suffered greatly from pneumonia, lung complaints, 1 lieuinaiisui, aud diseases ol 1 lie hoot.

The beanlilu) slave became a confidential servant and companion to her neroniis tresses, aud conducted herself toward them iu such a iigacious manner that she became indispensable to them, Slip sang to them, and gossiped and fioli.-ked so gracefully that eiu was banished completely.

The beautiful young slave, who had not left their side tor a moment during the few hours of their illness, seemed inconsolablo. Sin- did her best, however, to assuage the grief of the ancient merchant, and in this way so endeared herself to him that he adopted her as his child and heir. since he w as just a little too old to marry her. lu course of time, the venerable sage it-joined his swarthy wives in the other world, aud the fortunate nymph came into possession of his millions.
