SALT LAKE CITY—LOCATION, »'IAN, AC. The Wasatch range, for several hundred miles north and south, pre sents a precipitous wall—quite like the eastern slope of the Sierras ; no long sloping foot-hills. The valleys, plains, benches or table-lands, as the case may be, jut against the Wa satch wall like a Boor. The country west of the great barrier looks the same as that from the eastern brow of the Sierras—small ranges, de tached mountains, sage plains, and lakes at regular intervals. In front of the Sierras, there are Owens, Mono, Walker, Carson and Ilum boldt, Pyramid, Honey and other lakes ; at the base of the Wasatch, are Bear, Salt, Utah and others in a manner to correspond. Salt Lake is the larger of all these mentioned, near one hundred miles in leDgth by au average of half or two-thirds in width ; contains several large moun tain islands,—Antelope being the larger,—fifteen or twenty miles in length. The railroad pass through the Wasatch is by way of Echo and Weber canyons —the grandest scene ry perhaps on the entire route ; though it differs from that of the Sierras, in that in the former you look up, in the latter down at the wonders of nature. Echo is weird and picturesque to the last degree, while Weber is in reality but a con tinuation of the former. Weber river, a wild stream running about us much water as the Owyhee,—does not pass through Echo canyon. The river and railroad come out into day light about thirty miles south of tbe north end of riait Lake—the road has to run that distance nearly due north to Corinne, Ac. to Promonto ry- a point of mountain running into the north end of the lake. Og den city is eight miles north of Weber canyon, where is located Deseret station ; from Deseret, it is thirty miles south to .Salt Lake City, which is situated on a- low bench sloping gradually to the Bouth and west, and distant from (and nearly opposite to) the south end of tbe lake about fifteen miles. The Jor dau river puts into the lake from the squib— all of which arc in plain sight from the city. To the east ward of the city there is a cove or depression in the mountain wall of several miles in depth, at the ex tremity of which, on the second bench, is situated Camp Douglas. To the southeast a lew miles the j mountains run up to perpetual snow j in the Twin Peaks in a comparative- j ly short distance. There is little ! timber in sight anywhere, yet it is obtained in considerable quantity in the tar-off canyons. ( >n the bench south of Ogden aud Deseret there is a de.se matting of oak shrubbery- j th« only oak l ever saw in or around | tbe Great Basin anywhere. The land j between the mountains and lake lies , nicely fur irrigation by the streams _tho secret of Mormon success in agriculture. THE PI tfS OF THK CITY The streets are h quite distinctive. certain width-very broad- 1 over one hundred and twenty-five feet, and run due north, south, east ! and west ; the blocks each contain ten acres, and are thus susceptible of furnishing a great supply ot fruits,, flowers, vegetables and, grain, rJ well as room for residences. The „ whlewalks 9X0 mostly lined with a variety of shade treas -loegst, box elder, quakenasp, maple, etc.—and alongside of which are conducted all a the pure mountain waters for irri gating and other purposes ;- thus constituting the only city,' perhaps, in the world where one is tempted Ma hot day to drink eutbf the gut ters, and which one fe perfectly safe in d«ng at any lime, so far as soy fear. of. filth is c*ucetned. .These artificial rivulets are a most agreea ble feature of the City of Saints, and lend an air of health and clean liness to the entire surroundings which nothing else could. There are no artificial sidewalks or pave ment of streets—nothing but the natural gravelly bench, which has become worn and washed off in many places till it is about as rough as a cobble-stone manufacture ; hence the sidewalks are hard on valley-tan, and to the thinly-soled, because very tiresome. Besides, thege wide blocks and streets, thinly inhabited, scatter a city of twenty-odd thous and inhabitants over a large area of real estate, and one is compelled to do considerable walking in the ab sence of street cars, etc. The water in the gutters is convenient for sprinkling sidewalks, etc., which, with sweeping, are rendered a hard road to travel in the business por tion of the city especially. With the shade and fruit trees, and exten sive plan of city, It is ode bf "mag nificent distances '' in more than one sense :—to that of sight and smell, there is nothing offensive ; no dark or narrow alleys to feel a way through at any hour ; no street brawls and drunken carousals to disturb the sleeper, or scarce any sound but the rustling of leaves and rippling of water,—and the pure mountain air should satisfy the taste of the most fastidious. For lack of lumber and timber for fencing, thore is much stone wall of the com pc u >* or cobble-stone order, in use in and about the city ; where this wall shuts off the eyesight from pri vate residences, there is an air ot exclusiveness, in oonnection with polygamous associations, that sug gests the Itlèa of a Turkish harem or seraglio. Those blocks occupied by the'hlgher dignitaries, are generally well "inclosed in the above manner, and one cannot help commenting on the fact. Formerly, tbe entire city was enclosed by a stone and mud wall six or eight feet high, from four to two feet thick, as a protection against the Indians in early days— certainly courdn't have been intend ed for any defense against anybody else. The block in which the New Tabernacle and Temple are built and in course of Construction, is lo cated about midway of the city east and west, and near the second bench Block has a high and substantial wall, somewhoUi'mtidg atoroament »'ion. It is Intended otherwise as center of the city,and the streets «« named and numbered accord.ng 1/ : -« Sbrüt South, East and W est Temple streets ; then 2d V. &,*. aIU * W > Tmple, etc., etc. The | block east of Temple contains Brig j hum's residences and place of busi , ness generally (the Hon and beehive houses), the tithing hoffse,' Deseret overlooking tbe city from tbe north, and on which are but few residences, although it 19 the xnofe commanding view for that purpose.

The rule in building materia!, is adobe; there is more or less brick used, and a ^■■1 1 species ot red sandstone is consider hbly employed with fine effect, !

With the exception ' or those highly walled in villas ; (every block is a little town by it- ! sell ) tli* city présents a decidedly airy, roomy and romantic scene ; es pecially is this so in overlooking the city from the*'bench on the north. From an acre lot or even less, those European families will raise enough almost to support them a year, be sides selling a quantity ot several varieties of fruit, berries or vageta bles^ 1 will add that the crops of every description are very promis ing this year, and as yet money very scarce throughout Utah,—and let this article go for a starter. I [ couldn't make it much shorter and ! say anything. I : Sanford C. Owens, who has spent the spring and summer at White Pine, bas returned,spending a couple of days in town oh his way to Boise and Idaho. He speaks of White Pine as a land full of promise, and thinks if a sufficient number of mills were in operation it could employ nearly double the number of men now at work, though at present there are too many people for the amount of labor to be performed, and the consequence is that a large number are idle and many without The Idaho boys are scat means. tered about in the different districts and as a rule have not done much for themselves.
