A FABLE. In days of old. when stones could talk. And shrubs and treea like men could walk. When herbs and flowers could language use Nor did the faculty abuse. When ii.sect tribes, endowed with reason. In conversespent each happy season. When men on earth had angels' powers. And brutes had faculties like ours, 'Twas in those days. (If ever 'twas.) This circumstance did come to pass. A fox one day with puss was talking. As they two in the fields were walking, 'A snileringabou' In pleasant chat. Talking of this thing and of that The beaullnusdsy, tbe charming fields. The sweet delights tbat nature yields. How pleaant llfe.and full of charms. When free from danger and alarms; n sadder themes their converse ran. How ags sometimes the fields did scan. How friends and kindred had been slain. Whose efforts to escape were vain; How many i;is befel their race From cruel men who loved the chase. Tbe fi x was foi ward, rash, presuming. And puss was modest, unassuming. He talked of politics, the weather; He boasted much, and thought It clever. of his own cunning vaunted much Not ogs or men his bide could touch ; And they might do their worst, be said. tor all their arts be did not dread. He had a thousand tricks at least. His wits would save himself be guessed. But still be hoped all danger passed. And peace and safety CO tne at last. But pray." said he,'lf times should change And furious dogs the fields should range. What course do yon design to take What effort for your safety man I have a trick, a singleune. If tbat don't ssve me, sure I'm gone. I have no other hope beside, Thus modestly the cat replied. While thus conversing on tbe plain, A pack of ds upon them came. Tbe cat sprang un into a tree. And safe from every harm was she Her single shift was all her need. The dogs passed by with furious speed A fler the fox 1 uhed on amain. And overtook him on the plain; And he.

Toptka and Santa J-'e Railroad Myriads of JivtfaloJfutchinson and the Ar kansas River Valient the Garden Spot of the Wtat. HUTCHINSON, Kansas, Nov. 26. Ed. Chkosicle: When you went to school, ami filed out to recite wiib the first class iu geography, Mitchell's, or any other map, represen ted that vast vague and comparatively unexplored territory west of the MUs-isyippI, dot ted all over, as tbe " Great American Deser ." Of late years, if our child reu inform us correctly, the geoera- hers say nothing about the Desert We happen to be sojourning lu the eastern midst of tbat formerly sui posed Bandy waste and see no traces of it : but instead, a soil uusui passed fertility on this or, perhaps, any oilier continent. We speak from nx perience, having traversed the greater oortiou of the western country, and quote the impartial opinion of many more extensive voyagers. Since those cliool days, overland travelers to Cal fur nia have informed me tbat the Ureal Desert is only a series of ex ten sive, glass' plains, inhabited by the red man, buffalo, antelope, and rattle snake. Thus vanishes many a favor ite old time theory before the light of progress and investigation. The leeljle and aittle-iiotlced terri tory of Kansas, after a bard struggle for even an embryo exintei-ee, sudden ly was born a State. Then arose tbe great question which shook the uatiou rum center lo circumference, and routed the dormant souls of freemen. Her hardy border sons, rallied around ny a few immortalized spirits, rose as one malt and swore tbat her fair soil sltould never be polluted by the reed ily eucroachiugcurHeof slavery. Their bumble cabins were burned, and their loved ones bulcheied ; but ere '.hey poured out their life bliajd ihey burled back tbe black invader. To-day, in Lawrence, Leaveuwoith, aud many another Mipulous city, the autumn wind sweeps over lite graves of the aloiious vanutiaid of the ball a million beioes wlio t.nered up their lives that universal liberty might be purchased not only in America, but for alt man kind. It seems but yesterday since the smoke of burning La wreuce rolled eastward over our startled countn like a heay pall, and the scream -ol her murdered inhabitants were 'a ted the ears of Uie resMusi ve lovers of freedom iu the Buckeye State. To day note uie contrast Peace and piueperity unriva.ed abound eve where. The iMipulatiou of eastern and central Kansas numbers numbed thousauos. The Puciiio railioad runsibrough tlie heart of the State, and the great tidal wave of immigra tion rolls ever on Mara. Not one of the least important of the many railroad enterprises now developing the we-teru world is tbe construction of the Atchison, Topeka auu cania re itaiiroau, wnti winch 1 am at pre eut connected. Lit'le more than two years ano, a company of Boston cauilalists Conceived the nlan opening tbe vast wealth of New Mexico luu me bourn west, ami pour iug it by a direct line of railway into our great Commercial centers. Tbe work lienan at Topeka, aud was proa ecu led iu both directions, to Atchison aud westward across the Suite, with energy and substantiability l ever surpassed lr equaled ; and now up wards of four hundred miles of iron re laid down, the western boundary tbe State is approached, aud next spring will see it intersect with tbe line of ibebouth Pacific road on tbe parallel of latitude. As tbe track was laid, and in some iustaucesantic ipatiug it, towns and cities sprang into existence, aud miles ou miles of fer ule soil 011 either bam1 are under suc cesslul cultivation. As an instance of the growth of this section, I cite the town of Hutchin son, Reno Co. (my present location), the point where the road strikes the Arkau-as river. Only one year vgo tbe loth of this mouth the building of the first house was commenced ; then, not it human being resided within thirty miles; all around herds ot buf falo and antelope gamboled upou a favorite spot of their ancestors. T he tiack reached here the middle of Juue. live iu a flourishing town, whose broad Main street is liued with band some stores aud warehouses.

Whereupon Betty started the hymn in the funniest little pipe or a voice that ever was heard. Mvn herr's instinct for tune majored the wrong minors and cheered the melan choly flats; and presently the air, in tmduced by Belly in raits and tatters, was clothed bv Ins tich voice as with a wedding garment. "It ish a very pretty little ting," said riari. "I knew you'd like it," answered Betty, stopping to listen to something unusual Koine on ud stairs.

The mutual relations or non-relations of 310 stood in this wise, and were likely so to stand, when one night Betty awoke In a hiuh fever. The morning found her no better, and Mrs Bent sat at her liedside until noon when the child suddenly came out of a long sleep with staring eyes and a set face, upon which great drops began totrnther. Mrs. Bent knew by instinct that Betty's life was precious to every in mate of tbe house, and she flew like a flash down 'he stairs, burst ing- into tbe room where the Misses Jones were tranquilly sewing on two shades of brown poplin. "Quick, quick ! Betty ia dying ! Brandy mustard everything !" Ou she sped. Mvnherr Karl was at that Instant measuring a customer.

THE NORTHWEST. A Ride Along the Northern Pacific Railroad. [Correspondence of the Cleveland Herald.] MOORHEAD, Nov. 11, 1872. Except among those directly inter ested, we believe Ibe Northern Pacific Ua.lroad has received but a very gen eral attention. There has been such an universal satisfaction in having one line of railroad across thecouti neut, that the progress of the second has awakened nothing like the inter est that was bestowed upon the first This was so much the case, with us at least, that when we determined on trip over this line we must coufess to have had but a vague idea of where we were goiug, or of what we were going to see, and tnougn we may have been unexceptiouauly lguorau ou this subject, yet we believe a few particulars in regard to the completed portion of the road, aud tbe ettect it has already had upon the adjacent cu u try may not be uninteresting. Iu the firs; place we would wish to speak of the road itself, for in this we must confess lo have been greatly di apioiuted. Although quite prepared to find a road over which trains could run with some deuree of security, yet that we should be able to travel the cut. re distance Irom Duluth to the Hed Biverof the North, with as much safety aud comfort as we would have 111 going from Cincinnati to Buflalo, seemed hardly among tbe possibili ties; yet it is uotbing more than the truth. The entire distance, two hun dred and fifty two miles, from Duluib 10 MiMirhead, the furthest poi.il how reached by regularly running trains. is as well built and as thoroughly equipped a road s coulJ be wk-hed It careluliy and solidly ballasted. and tbe rails being connected by tbe piate joint, you roll over it as snosiih iy as you would over the New Yoik Central, or in fact over any other well nuill road lu the cotiuirv. that por tion or ine road, tweuiy-iour miles in length which winds up the St. Louis river from Duluth to the lunctioti 01 the main line with the Lake Superior and Mississippi division, presents all the magnificence of scenery, and cou -iQiienilv all the difficulties to eiiirm erring, of which rugged hills, rocky crags aud iom enstgulliesare capable, but yi u ride over it as smoothly and with as perfect a sense or security as you would over tne fennsyivunta Central. Indeed, it has not u 11 ire quently been compared to that road, and for wibliiessof sceuery, and, with some few exceptions, for solidity 01 construction, even, it fully sustains tbe compaiison.

Already las it the nir chine shops and man aging I'ftices of ibe railroad, aud, lu a word, expects some day to be a place of no liltle importance, a fact which is evidenced by lite prices demanded or coiner lots, and the laying out 01 streets over a considerable portion ol the adjacent country. A short distance beyond this place you get out of tbe woods and enter a really fine country, a rolling prairie which soon settles down lo the dead level of the great Red River plain, over which the track stretches in one uuswerving line for sixty five miles. It is here that you first see the won derful effect which the building of this mud has had. Farms are laid out, laim houses are i'U'lt and being built, aud everything shows signs of a grow ing prosjierily. Without wishing to go iuto statistics at all we would m re ly mention that from Pernam, seven ty miles west of Braiuerd, the surplus ol wheat to be shipped over the North eru Pacific this y ar is 10,000 bushels, and when we consider that this is tbe first year's crop (for a little over one year uno Perbani had not an inhabit ant), the figure is not a bad oue. How ever, this is only au item. The Red River of the North is croseed at Msrhead by a Hue wooden bridge, which is so constructed as to admit of the passage ot wagons. From this point the road is completed, or rather the track is laid 150 miles into Dakoto, almost iu fact to tbe Missouri River, though regular trains have not yet been ruu over this portion of tbe road. At Moorhead connections are made with stage aud steamboat lines to ihos distant Canadian settlements which have long been so cut off from comuiunicaiiou with the world that their very existence has hardly been known. Indeed, nothing else than tbe building of railroads, and thus enabling men to go aud see for themselves, would lie able to remove the Kpular idea tbat this entire North west region was one of utter sterility, aud this is oue of the obji-ctious lo the Lecessity of this railroad, which, by its construction, la being rapidly removed. A vast territory, not only inhabita ble but already inhabited, has thus been ibrown open to tbe world which would otherwise ' have long re mained in oblivion.

Tbe popular mistake lu regard to the sterility of tne soil In this country has, of course, been due to the mistake in regard to its c.iniate. That the winters are long and cold Is undoubt edly true; hut it Is just as much a fact that tbe summers as far north as flft two degrees are warm enough and long enough to cause the smalier grains and vegetables to mature, as it is a fact that they w'll mature In Ohio. That the c I i mate is . healthful one there need be no better proof than the hardy appearsncenf the people, who like their fathers before .them, have never lived in any other. With the 'acts of n gn.id climate, a fertile soil, and railroad communications fully established, the result in America has always bt-en wealth and pin!a?rity, and with these facts fully established in onr new Northwest, there seems little reason in thinking tbat it will prove an exception to the rule.

First, s thai tbe animal stands -quare; -then, with a string, take bis circumference just behind ibesboul- ler blade, and measure tbe feet and ucbet this is the girth. Then measure from tbe bone of the tail which plumbs tbe Hue with the hind er part of tbe buttock, aud direct tbe mug along the bacK. to tue fore part if the shoulder blade, sud this will be tbe length. Then work the tiiture thus: Suppose girth of bullock 6 and 4 inches, length, 5 feet 3 inches, Inch multiplied together, make 33 square -u per fecial feet, aud th se, multiplied by 23 the number of pounds allowed tor each superficial foot of cattle meas uring less than seven and more than five feet in girth make 7oU lbs Wheu the animal mea-ures less than nine and more than seven feet in girth, 31 is the number of pounds to be estimated for each superficial font. And suppose a small animai lo meas ure 2 feel it. girth and 2 feet in length these multiplied together make 4 feet, which, multiplied by eleven the number of pounds allowed for each square foot when tbe cattle measure less than three feet in girth make 4-1 pounds.
