Our National Park* THE reservation which Congress wisely made on the Yellowstone River for the purpose of a National Park, is likely to be ranked as one of the wonders of the world. Between the Yellowstone and the Gallatin the divide is formed of a volcan ic conglomerate, which has been worn by the action of the weather into a dense mass of columns and pinnacles, beyond number. Little streams wind their way through these conglomerates, and here and there deep gorges, cut down to the mctamorphic rocks, intervene. Every where opalized or silicified wood abounds, and one instance is recorded where the stump of a tree, thirteen or fourteen feet in diameter, may be seen entirely inclosed in the breccia. The question has been suggested by the Government geologists, from whence these breccia came, and un der what conditions they were deposited since they are sometimes from four to five thousand feet thick, and lying in perfect, ly horizontal strata. It concludes that they were thrown out by volcanoes into water thus assuming that at a compara tively recent date the mountain ranges of the Northwest were submerged. This latter supposition is shown by other evi dence to lie sound, and we may suggest to Mr. Haydcn, that the explanation he fur nishes of the deposition of the breccia may be seen illustrated from time to time in Hawaii. During the great eruption from Kilauea, in 1859, vast quantities of breccia thrown into the sea fell upon a bottom of similar material that had probably been many years in accumulating and in one instance a flood of molten lava fol lowed, completely filling up a small bay, and at the same time engulfing a native village. Any subsequent elevation of the land round this great volcano of the Sandwich group would probably present at a future day much the appearance which we now sec preserved to us in the region of our National Park, and in a more marked degree than could be had in any other volcanic region, thus fully cor roborating Mr. Hayden's theory. One of the most curious features of this region is to be found in the hot springs. On the border of the Yellow stone Lake are often to be seen elevated mounds, which jut out from the shore into the water. These contain pools filled with heated water, so that it is possible for a person standing on the mound to catch trout in the lake with the help of a fishing rod, and to cook them in the boil ing spring without taking them off the hook. The water in these sprinjrs varies much in temperature, from 104 degrees to about 162 degrees, th *ir elevation above the sea-level ranging from 5,750 to 6,779 feet, at least those which have been more closely examined. The springs of the high est elevation are usually those in which the water is of the highest temperature. The gas given off from them is most fre quently sulphuretted hydrogen, though from some half a dozen of them carbonic acid only is detected. It would seem that they are constantly undergoing changes, old springs drying up and new ones coming into existence. There is evidence that these springs were once much more numerous then they now are, and a probability that they will one day become extinct. There is an other variety found in the neighborhood which, although less picturesque, are otherwise as interesting. These are mud springs or salses. The temperature of the water in these is often below that of the surrounding atmosphere, and sometimes as high as 190 degrees Fahrenheit. In one instance they cover the entire hillside, bubbling and steaming from top to bot tom. The mud is of various colors—black and red from the deposit of iron, and yel low from the presence of native sulphur, while in consistency it varies from a thick pasty mass to inky "black water. It bub bles and boils incessantly from the escape of steam and sulphuretted hydrogen, which fill the air, and this, together with the splashing of the water, the heavier bubbling of the thick mud, and the throb bing and trembling of the whole hill-side, combine to form a scene not readily to be forgotten. Some of the most beautiful features in the scenery, apart from these geological curiosities, are the falls of the Yellowstone River. The lower of these, at the had of the Grand Canyon, is found to be —Boston Globe. o'Jl feet in height, and the depth of the canyon at its foot 075 feet, increasing rapidly to 1,000 feet. Before the fall the river sud denly narrows, becomes very deep and as sumes a remarkable green color. Large bowlders are sometimes carried over the precipice, as though they were mere peb bles yet so great is the height that be fore the water reaches the bottom it has resolved itself into a dense cloud of spray, which, gathering itself together again, soon after rushes botween its mountain walls, battling against the in tervening rocks, as a bright emerald-green stream, dashed only at intervals with a wreath of snow-white foam. The upper fall is distant from this not more than half a mile, and is 140 feet high, but chielly remarkable f»r the peculiar form which the water in its descent assumes in meeting with a number of great project ing rocks. More picturesque again than this are some beautiful falls on Cascade Creek, near by. The stream, after pass ing through a deep, gloomy gorge, makes a leap of about twenty-one feet, and then falls again in three streams a distance of qycr fil'tv feet into a beautiful rounded basin, in which the water is perfectly smooth and quiet, but out of which takes yet another leap ere it flows away into the river. The beauties of our National Park arc, in fact, so great, so numerous, so marvel ous, that our care must be, not how to im prove the place by art, but how to pre serve the treasures which nature has so lavishly bestowed.—New York Times. The Birch Canoe. A TOtJNG gentleman of Concord recent ly received the present of a birch bark canoe and the following evening he launched the frail craft, and invited a few friends to witness the trial trip. After carefully parting his hair in the middle, and dividing his small change equally between his right and left vest pockets, in order to preserve an exact equilibrium, he stepped on board. The vessel "walked the waters like a thing of life," but the young man, just at that time, saw some thing'on the bottom of the river that he wanted, and went down after it with a terrific splash, whereat his friends on the bank, stupidly supposing he had acci dentally tipped over, indulged in un seemly mirth. The navigator, however, swam ashore, and administering a cutting rebuke to bis friends, started again. The next time he tried it, he acknowledced that the frisky little boat did tip over, but felt confident that there would be no trouble after lie had got the hang of the thing. Finally he made a fourth and last attempt, the boat turned over as usual, and he camo up under it. His friends seeing that, he did not put in an appear ance, plunged in after him, snaked him out, and then, under the impression that he needed resuscitating, stood him on his head, rolled him on a barrel, burned fea thers under his nose, pounded his back, lanced his arms with a penknife, and otherwise maltreated him.
