A DAY AT THE PILOT MOUNTAIN.
On Friday October ihe 4th. I started in compa
ny with CapL S. W. D., and Mr. J. H., to ascend
the shaft of the main pinnacle. -
The tnorniii2 was cl-ar and bright. Not a
speck dimmed the blue etheiial vault, or intercept
ed the vision in any direction. It was just such
A.,v as should be chosen by visiters to ascend
the mountain. Half the beauty and grandeur of
the scene is lost in a less favorable day.
At 25 minutes past 9, a. m..we commenced as
cending the base of the mountain, at ao angle of
a. ilpcrreps. nassin? throuffh a drnse forest of
timber" consisting of white, black, red, and chest
nut oaks, poplar chestnut, hickory walnut of a
large size, and from 100 to 150 feet high.
The ascent of the base is divided into 8 steps,
(so called there) or platforms, each becoming
steeoer as vou ascend. At the 5th platform, there
is a place culled walnut cove ; where the soil is
rich enough, to produce su to ou ousneis oi corn
to the acre. The trees along, here are so numer
ous, the whole view of the Mountain is ohstiocted,
and here the wild locust is found, the pods of
which are said to make excellent beer.
By the time we reached the 7th platform, we
were nearly tired down; and hero would natural
ly be a resting place, for the grandeur of the
scene now besius to develop itself. ,
The 8th and last step brought us to the foot of
the pinnacle, and to what is called ' lamting rock.'.
The circumstance which gave rise to this name
was this : a lady in feeble health, in company
with a party, attempted to ascend the mountain.
When they reached this place, she fainted. On
reviving, she insisted on the party continnirfo up,
and leaving her until their return. -' Accordingly
they did so, but after they bad been up the moun
tain sometime they beheld the sick lady coming.
The main pinnacle at this place lonks more like
some vast got hie building of antiquity, than any
thing I can compare it to. . , ,
At 4 minutes past 11 o'clocV, we arrived at the
main pass of the big pinnacle. We now ascend
by ladders, and platforms; the ladders, five in
number, being generally 10 feet long. From the
foot of the fii st ladder to the top of the fifth ladder
being 85 feet perpendicular.
At half past eleven we gained the main pinna
cle, the highest point.
Here we have a view commanding the sur
rounding country for 200 miles, embracing the
Sauratwon mountains, with their five lofty peaks.
The grandeur and beauty ofthe scene js far be
yond my powers of description ; and no one can
have a correct idea of it without realizing it
White rock, the nearest peak of" the Sauraton
range, is 6 miles distant, Steel mountain is 9 naileV,
Mnre's Nob, 16" miles; Cook' mountain 15
miles; Flat Shoal is 20 miles. At the foot of
the Sauraton range runs Dan river. : ' : "
At a distance of 50 to 60 miles, is seen Carra"
way range of mountains, ' in Randolph connty.
In another direction can be -seen the Shallow
Ford on the Yadkin ; and although it 19 20 miles
distant, il looks as though it were t the foot of
the mountain. The ford is formed by an island
in the middle ofthe river.
To the southeast may be seen a white object the
size of a water bucket, tttat cannot be distinguish
ed with the eye; but by the aid of a glass, it can
be seen to be a white house. . It is 25 miles dis
Looking to the east, 50 plantations may be coun
ted in one direction ; and to the Northwest they are
so numerous it is difficult to count them. ' "
Some houses at a distance of 2 miles look 80
near as to lead one tq believe he1 could throw a
stone and strike them.
Looming in the distance, hi s;h above all other
mountains may be een th Peaks of Otter, in Vir
ginia, distant lOOmiW. The Blue Ridre and in
Alleghanies are plainly visible, and add greatly to
uie tjrunueur ui wie scrne.

Cant D. climbed a tree from which he saw
with a glass, table rock 110 miles, and Kins
mountains 94 miles in South Carolina. -
The main platform on the tori of the pinnacle.
is three acres in extent, covered with undergrowth
and shrubbery. ' Corn and wheojl could be raised
up here, and apple and peach trees, would bear
well, although 1800 feet high v '
Descending, we went around, the base of the.
maio shaft It resembles a Vast citadel.. wtth bas
tion after bastion ; recess after recess; fissure after
fissure, on the most gigantic scale, and of the most
stupendous neight The shaft is 633 yards roood.
On the south side of the mountain, there is an
echo, the plainest that ever heard. it. , ?

At the foot of the mountain ie a excellent nah,
lie house, kept by William OiUaTV E?q, Whose'
amiable and tasty lady makes every body comfor

fty. The charges are lemarkaWy low, and the
tare is of the most substantial, and even delicate
kind. The house is. large and would accommo
date 30 or 40 persons.,
Some 400 yards from "the" house, is ' an excel
lent mineral spring. Therfi is a fine road te the
louse, and I can truly say that no one can visit
scene more beautifully grand tham the Pilot moun
tain, or stop at a house where they will fare better I
