The special agent of ths Geaeral Lud
Office at St. Paul, writes, w. the Commit
jieoer that the United States has beea
successful iir all their
ciril suits tried
(hat'citj against the timber depredators

tllVl been fettled by judgments against
the defendants, and involving a large
jjmeunt in. lumber values. In cases
where logs were seized the suit was
brought for the ownership of the logs
and in tses where the timber
tiould not be found the" juo£2,ent*
It may be interesting to some people
for us to publish at times the compara­
tive record of the signal service ther­
mometer in St. Paul and Bismarck, as re­
ported by the observer at St. Paul, and
published in the Pioneer Press. At ten
clock Meaday night the thermometer
reported 36 above' zero in Bismarck and
37
above in St. Paul—not enough differ­
ence to make us shiver. At Yankton^
same hour, it was 33 «bove.
The Postmaster General has issued an

Gov. Tildee waa serenaded to-hight.
In his speech be said:' If our British
cousins find it difficult to get a supply
ef food we have bountiful supply,
and a continent ifl which are vast areas
of fertile soil adapted to the use of ag­
ricultural machinery and connected
with centres of trade by great rivers,
vi8t internal seas, and 75,000 miles of
railways, why cannot British workmen
have cheap roodf Oar farmers would
trade and our carriers facilitate this
commerce! Commercial exchanges, it
must be remembered, involve mutuality.
We must, reform and moderate our bar­
barous revenue system, and no longer
legislate against works of humanity or
the benefactions of God. Tilden en­
dorsed the democratic state ticket, and
said: "This election ha» 1 elation to
national policies, in regard to which
you expect that I should make some
observations. You are aware of the
result the contest in 1876." [A
voice: "You wer« robbed."] Tilden,
excitedly: dii not ^et roo?e'l. It
was a robbery of the dearest rights of
American citizens, the right of free
government, the right of the people to
govern theinssives and change their
rttUr* at will. If th« American people
lie down ami consent to sacrifice the
iategrity of their control over their
own government, they will commit a
wrong, not only against themselves,
but the people of every other land. One
thing I promise one thing I swear, be­
fore the assembled people of America: I
swear the governments America will
be restored to the people according to
the ideal of its founders."
THE SPOUTING -GEYSERS.
Gen. Shanum'i S«Kriptioa of the
Hot Spriagi
ml fhm
Tallnratoiw
Conmtry.
[Ex rsct from Sherman'* letter* the Secretary of
War.]
It would require^* volume to describe
these geysers ra detail. It must suffice
now fr me to that tho lower geyser
presents a series of hot springs or ba­
sins of water coming up from below
hot enough to scald. yoor hand, boil a
ham, eggs, or anything else, clear as
crystal, with basins of every conceiva­
ble shape, from tbe
A
size of a quill to
actual lakes one hundred yards across.
In walking among or aroand these, one
feels that in a moment bo mmj break
through and bo lost in a species of
hell.
Six miles higher up the West Madison
is the upper geyser bssin, tho spouting
geyser, the real object of aim of our
visit. To describe these in detail would
surpsss my ability, or the compass of a
letter. They have been described by
Lieut. Duane, Hayden, Strong, Lord
Dunran and many others. Tho maps
by Major Ladlow, or the engineers,
locate the several geysers accurately.
We reached the upper geyser basin at
12 m. one day, and remained there till
we saw the old "Faithful" performs: at
intervals varying from sixto two min­
utes to eighty minutes. Tho intervals
vary, but the performance only varies
with the wind and sun. The cone, er
hill, is of soft, decaying lime, bat im­
mediately about the hole whiob is
mm
intgulir itfeit »ig% feet
mcrostttib*, i« hambome, so that Me
can look in safety when the geyser is
at test. So regular an its periods of
activity that we could foretclV iCs move
ments within a~ few minutes. Some­
times we stood near enough' to feel the
hot spray,- at others-we sat at oar camp
about 800 yards away. Each eruption
waa. similar, preceded bv shoot five
minutes of Spluttering, and then would
ari*e a column of water, ateaming and
smoking, to the height of ona hundred
and twenty fife fert or one hundred
.d lhrty feet, the steam going a
hundred er more feet higher, according
to the state of the «rind. Jt was diffi­
cult to say where the woter ended and
the steam began, and this must be the
reason wby different observers hiV*
represented different results. Tbe
whole performance lasts about five
minutes, when tbe column of water
gradually sinks and the spring assumes
its normal state of rest. This is but
one'of some twenty of the active gey­
sers of this basin. For the tifnowe
remained we were lucky, for we saw
tbe Bee Hive troves in eruption. Tbe
Town and Grotto were repeatedly in
agitation, though their juts did net
rise more than twenty feet. We ad
not gee the Giant or tbe Grand it^era^.
tion, but they seefied busy Enough in
bubbling and boiling, jg fairly
bewildered by the variety, extent and
activity of thesq boiling, bubbling col­
umns of hat water. They do not eeem
to tn% co be volcanic, but rather the
result of the chemical action under­
neath, which produces beat and gases,
which give force and activity to these
geysers. Externally they are not as
beautiful as tbe formation of lime under
water—exquisite in form, but crumb­
ling in the hand and sinking when dry.
The^specimens gathered by the curious
and carried off amount to' nothing.
The real thin' is tbe quantity, variety,
a»d forms of action of the geysers.
A "WAR ROMANCE.
The'Desperate aad Fatal Courage of
Rudu GirL
Carre ipandence Landoo Times.
So on the 3d of September began the
advance on Biela. The whole ef the
force encamped in front' of Basgrad
marched out under tbe command of
Acbmet Eyoub, and proceeded by vari«
ous roada in the direction of Kacelyevo.
Here the Bussiaas bad strongly in
trenched themselves in front of the
Kara-Lorn. On the night of the 5th
the right wing, under Faud Pasha,,
reached Costonss, while the -center,'
under Nedjib, occupied Soleric. Mean
while ever since the 81st of August
Sabitt had been creeping along from
Karabassankol, over the hills at the
back, and along the valley ef tho river
paat Bekirin leaikoi, in tho Mnii di­
rection. On Thursday, the 6th, a com­
bined attack en Kacelyevo was carried
out ID excellent style. The Russians
defended|themselves extremely well and
made the best ef their position, but it
was manifest that they were outaum
bered. The Turks- showed good cour*
age and advanced with coolness against
a very heavy artillery fire, delivered
with admirable precision. The enemy
had intrenched themselves ia three
linos, but the first was soon carried.
The second was more obstinately con
tested, and here occurred, probably, one
of tbe most extiaordinary episodes of
the war. As tho Russians began to
waver aad their fire to sleeken as the
Turks were pressing forward nith in­
creased vigor, a young Russian officer
was seen standing just behind one of
the batteries waving his sword aad
boldly encouraging bis men to stand
their ground. Over and over again he
rallied the troops who were pouring
oat of the trench, but it was of no use
it was not in his power alone to stem
the tide of victory. Hie men animated
by his example, turned and held their
own for a few minutes, but the fire was
toe heavy for anything to stay and live.
They could not bear it. They fell on
their knees and entreated him to fly,
but not an inch would he stir, and at
last he stood for more thaa a minute
absolutely alene, save for the dying
and the dead piled ia heaps around
him. It could-only end one way amid
the storm of bullets which were rain-,
iag round him thick as bail oae at
last found its way to that noble heart,
and he fell dead. As tbe Turks swept
over the parapet and dashed past the
spot, where he lay-, the Colonel, atruck
by the boy's extraordinary courage and
devotion, gave orders that he should be
decently buried. In the evening he
reported to the Commander-in-Chief
that the body was that of a girl. I
give this most astounding declaration
of the Colonel on the authority of one
of tbe English officers on the Serdar's
staff, who tells me ho was actually pres­
ent when it wss made. It seems almost
incredible but true or false, no braver
heart ever beat than sow sleeps in that
little grave on tho sunny-slope of Ka­
celyevo.
