OUR LATEST IMPROVED
JVew Nettle Piano-Forte!
Grovonsteen & Co.,
493 BROADWAY, x. r.
THESE instruments.aftTthi Mattering testi
monials from the first Pianists in the coun
try who, at our solicitation, have tested them
in the severest manner possible, have been
pronounced
The Finest Square Piano-Forte
made In the World.
It lias always been our policy during the
Thirty-tit Years that we have aianutiirtureil
Pianos, twenty thousand of which arc now in
use in the Uuited States and Kurope, to give
the finest instruincnts at the lowest cost. Our
superior facilities enable us to oiler them from
to three hundred dollars less than any other
Frst Class House.
The tone of these instruments are remarka
ble for their peculiar Sweetness mid Great
Brilliancy. Never losing their quality when
forced to their utmost capacity. The lower
register retaining its positiveness does not de
stroy the middle and upper registers liy min
gling with them in disagreeable confusion.
The refined beauty of tone being equal de
lightful to the unpracticed and to the most
cnltivated ear.
They are entirely new style of Piano, finish
ed in the most superb manner, with four round
comen, front and back, heavily carved legs and
lyre Surpcntino Base richly moulded, and
each instrument is full warranted for live
years.

I wa« on b«.rd a wry pretty little
stcamlioa!, in a btautiful'y rounJcil n«»• «St
of the lake; im our and nothing stirring
about tn>'; the sun m iking in the bieatli
less blue air a net-work <>f gold imtl silver
upon tin- breast of tlie little harbor in
which we lay cl">Bf u|i to shore: a huge
pile opposite me of heavily-wooded granite,
overtopping by % thousand (Vet iniii more,
the trees that fringed tint waters ; « pro
found quietude pervading the morning
dream and subduing the glory, with
which it was fraught and featured, into
the softest radienee. J'ines, firs, cedars
—all of the handsomest gjowth—came
down in open order to the waters of the
basin in which the Muri/ 3fooi!f/, swan
like, threw her white shadow ; then again
climhcd'up in massive column the moun
tain opposite-; while wild goose-berries,
currents, service-beirics, interwoven with
flowers and flowering shrubs, make a
thick undergrowth about them, through
which was heaid at times tho rustling of
the grouse, tho giound sjuirrcl. the tab
bit, and such small deer.
The little harbor is over sixty feet in
depth, cold, clear and of n golden brown,
owing to the the trees so densely crowded
in upon it, and tiint noble mountoin over
hanging it; but so clear that, close to the
graveled bench, where the water is fully
twenty fret in depth, the smallest trifles,
from a fish head to a broken saucer, are
shining discernibly. White fish, (speckled
and salmon trout, suckers, and other de
lectable swimmers swarm there, as they
do through the broader waters outside ;
and as the harbor is closely invested, tho
Spokane and Cirur d'Aleuc Indians, in
the winter months, surround and drive
the deer and other nntlered game into the
basin, where they slaughter them unmer
cifully. From the foot of the mountain
opposite—out from the roots of the lower
most trees that mount and crowd all over
it—a tiny stream, glistening as tliougli it
wer* (nil of diamond*, mid cold as the
coldest ice, splashes into the waters of
golden brown, having leaped to its Inst
home many hundred feet down from ledges
of broken granite, moss-covercd nnd piled
with whitened drilt-wood. Jutting ii.to
the harbor and closing it up, nppurctitly,
as one approaches the latter from tin*
lake itsc'f, jhcrtt rises a benutifully-slmp-d
mound, studded with tall ■ trees, straight
nnd graceful ns any sculptured columns,
but eloquent with a light and music which
no metal, wood, or marble, however ex
quisitely fashioned by the chisel is eter
fraught with. On this the pleaß int own
er of the Marn Moody designs to have a
ci.ttnge for his summer residence, nnd
heartily shall I envy him the same.
Looking through the trees across the
neck that connects this mound or hillock
villi Ibe mainland, the pine-built wall* ot
l'eud d'Oreille city faiity glittered in the
puneliint—such jewelry did the magic of
the day attract from or impart to the
pl«ine-t things that delighMul morning.

I roken by the shriil scream ami the pad
(l lon ot the a'enmboit." In le»s than fif
tci n year* this prediction of the most gal- |
lant, indctatigihle, nnd triumphant ot all :
our explorers of the Great Mountains has
been verified ; and no one who now bea's
rapidly "fiver Luke I'end d'Oicille ill the

of In ud and heart that ennoble him, can >
refrain from a deeply monrnlnl regret that ■
Isaac 1 Stevens was not spared tocontem
plate, as he would have done witli enthu
siasm, the ripening into civilization of the
wild region his intrepid researches threw
open to the Government and people of his
country. llut tht« keen intellect and
dauntless spirit, which conquered to the j
knowledge of the country this vast wilder- '
ncss, so full of marvelous urindeurs and
resources, passed irrevocably from us in
the rain and tire of that fatal night at
Chantilly, in the autumn of IMJ2, and his
reward for all he did here is but the remem
brance in which his enterprise and achieve
ments, as illustrious as they wi re incalcul
ably useful, are now, and lor generations
to come, shall with his name be gratefully
enshrined.
I have spoken of the Jl f<iry Muwly in
diminutive terms of endearment nnd
esteem. This may be considered an error
when one is told that sin- is 108 feet in
length, has 'JO feet beam, *1 feet 'J inches
depth of bold, nnd is No ton burden, Iluilt
on the lake in the winter of 1860, all her
timbers were whip-sawed. The planking
is of yellow fir. lfcr upper wooden-work
is of white pine. Four months after the
first tree was felled for her she was afloat.
Fifteen days alter lhat her stenm-whistic
staithd tint echo of the mountains, the
lonesomeness and mysteriousncss of which
she has forever banished ; and elk, and
bear, and lied Man stood with straighten
ed hair and ears nt the shrill challenge of
their invader. Her engine—2o horse
power—came nil the way from Willington,
on the Delaware. The first trip she had
on hoard 85 pack-animals, 10.000 pounds
of freight, and SO passengers. Designed
to be the first of three boats tl(at nre to
navigate Clark's Fork of tint Columbia to
the mouth of the Joeko —ten miles west
of the main rang*; of the ltock v Mountains
—she stops short at the lauding at the
feot of the Cabinet Mountains—some fifty
miles from her starting-point nt Fend d'-
Oreillc city—tho ltapids, immediately
above the landing, being too violent to
permit her pushing further up. Aliovc
these ltapids the second bout will ascend
to Thomson's Falls. Above Thomson's
Falls the third boat will complete the
chain of navigation to the Jocko. This
p!an in operation, the northwestern potlion

branches of which, ns iu a bo<vl, a wild
lioose has built licr nest to keep her young

" A wisH goose that!" observed the
Pilot with a mirthful wink, ns though he
says something equally as wise as the
bird ; and then whirling his wheel until
the spokes blend and disappear, seems
immensely pleased.
As we near the Landing, all along the
left bank, a little back from the river,
grandly overlooking, nnd with precipitous
bold cliffs of red slate serving as an utilift-
Ed shield to every thing—woods, meadows,
Indian lodges, and nil the incidents and
figures of the scene—tho Cabinet Moun
tain magnificently towers and spreads its
ample wall, tile face of which is deeply
furrowed, nnd the upper lino of which is
broken, pointed, or rounded" into tablets,
suggestive of gigmtiegates, or monstrous
head-stones in n grave-yard of buried
Titan*. In the full blaze of the sinking
sun We head tip against the Landing, and,
making the Mary Moody fast, scrambling
up the shelving bank, to find ourselves iu
a bustling little place—some future town
of prodigious consequence, it may be, now
in its noisy infancy—consisting of two
houses, nnd a capacious shed for horses nnd
mule«. A saw-mill is in vehement opera
tion here. sweating nt its work; which
fait tho big drops of perspiration oozing
from it are evidence enough. The owner
of it, Mr. Abrahams, a rigid religionist,
who shuts himself hermetically up on Sun
days, invites Colonel Cornelius O'Keefe to
his house—onu of the two just mentioned
—and courteously entering it, the Colonel is
introduced to Mrs. Abrahams, whose table
is perfumed with a bouquet of mouutain
flowers, the ottering of the men nt work
about the Lauding, who thus, even in thtse
wild solitudes, vindicate the proverbial gal
lantry of Ameiicausto their countrywoman,
nnd, indeed, to women generally the world
over. Another ladv is present, whWson
served in the Second Wisconsin nt tho fust
battle of Hull llun. Tho Colonel, being
shown his photograph, recognized an
accomplished and brave young comrade,
who, having entered ntiothcr regiment
from the same State shortly after that cel
ebrated event, fell at Fredericksburg tho
day that General Hurnsido knocked his
head against it.
