like an egg. It throws water with great force from four to eight feet high, and is so l„)t that it would scald a person in an instant. This spring is located at the base of Crater Hill, or Sulphur Mountain, and around it for H distance of several hundred feet there is a mixture of sulphur and lava. As this spring had never received any name, it was sug gested by one of the party that it ought to be called the ''Devil's Bath Tub," the high tem perature of the water being doubtless suita ble for his Satanic Majesty's ablutions. About thirty rods north of this spring, at the base of a mountain or foot-hill, is a deep sulphureous cavern, the mouth of which is eight feet in diameter, and from which a vol ume of heated steam or vapor explodes with a regular report like a high pressure engine. It is called the "De vil's Den." Still further on we were directed by our guide to another boiling spring, about fifty feet deep by forty feet wide. The water, which comes from the mountain above by a subterranean passage, is dark aud muddy, and is in constant action. It is the most' terrifying, infernal looking thing w e have ever encountered. Our guide, Jack Baronett, says it "throws up" once a year, and from the looks of the surrounding trees aud shrubbery we have no reason to doubt Jack's statement. A few hundred rods Ixyond is the "Muddy Geyser," or, perhaps, better known as the "Mud Volcano," which was so well described by General Washburn in his articles pub lished in the Herald three years ago. How ever, as it was not in action while we were there, we saw nothing attractive about it, and ing the "sights" hastily, we pursued journey towards the Lake, where we arrived yesterday about four o'clock p. m. It is a magnificent,body of water—this lake —and much larger than we had anticipated seeing. "Such a vision," exclaims Dr. Hay den, "is worth a lifetime, and only one of such marvelous beauty will ever greet human eyes," "Secluded amid the loftiest peaks of the Rocky Mountains," writes Mr. Langford, "possessing strange peculiarities of form and beauty, this watery solitude is one of the most attractive natural objects in the world.' We have a beautiful camp on the west-side of the Lake, near the north end, and we call it "Camp Walker," in honor of our leader, Maj. R. C. Walker. Some of the soldiers, under the leadership and supervision of sol dier Starr, (w'lio, by the way, was many years a jolly tar,) constructed a boat or raft, see our 150 _ . ami early this morning launched it for the trial trip. It proved a success, and this after noon »he ladies had the pleasure of a ride on thi^movel craft, crossing the lake to the east Aule. ) Everything goes along charmingly, and our party is as interesting as the most fastidious might wish. The ladies display that true spirit aud genuine pluck in emergercies, which is the characteristic of the cultivated and refined American woman. Without them we could not half enjoy the wonderful phe nomena and sublime scenery of the National Park. They are the first to see a facinating landscape, a snow'-capped mountain peak, a dashing cascade, a boiling spring or a spout ing geyser, and by their enlivening remarks to cause the obtuse and more prosy minds of their masculine attendants to appreciate more keenly the marvellous beauties of nature. Truly it may be said that even in the wilder ness man needs the elevating influences of woman. We omitted to mention in our last letter that John Keating, accompanied by his bride; Mr. Fuller, Deputy Collector of Internal Revenue, at Bozeman ; Mr. Black, brother of Col. L. M. Black, and Miss Jennie Totten, • of Helena, arrived at the Hot Springs the night before we left for the Falls. The party will rusticate at the springs a few days and then return. This morning wc met several members of the Spokane party of wonder-seekers— R. H. Evans, John Harringtod, Edward Sykes, Edmund Ketclium and R. F. McKinney, They are now encamped near us, and will start for home to-morrow morning via the Great Falls. W. F. Sanders and party from Helena aud Virginia City, are expected here to-morrow or the day after. And now a few words regarding the sup posed hardships of a trip through the Na tional Park. It has been said and stoutly maintained b\ r those who have visited this wild and rugged country, that it was next to impossible for a female to make the tour, and that the very furthèfrest she could go with prudence or safety was the Hot Springs, Gardener's river. Thi9 we were told at Hel ena, ami while at Fort Ellis some of the offi cers who had recently made the trip, declared t|»jit it would be highly injudicious for the ladies of our party to undertake the journey. How is it? Mrs. Walker is now and has been for a number of years an invalid, yet she arose from a sick bed and by the advice of her physician undertook the trip through the Park. Thus far she lias succeeded, riding most of the way on horseback, and we might say she has already accomplished the journey, for the most Of it is now over. Nor has Mrs. Walker been sick a moment since she started, but on the contrary has steadily improved, until now she looks and feels as well as any one in the party, and seems capa ble of enduring equally as much fatigue. Her two daughters—Misses Julia and Maggie have also endured the hardships of the trip, with no visible signs of weariness, and with cut a moment's illness of any description. ^>or have they the pale and palid compexion (, f some of their friends, for their "horse back rides through the National Park" have jrained for them a ruddy hue of cheek, tinged the the silk was ted. The so a is with deeper brown. These are the first ladies that every visited Yellowstone Lake. A few have visited the geyers and the falls, but Mrs Walker and her two daughters are the first white females that ever beheld this classic and beautiful lake. This is quite an important event, and as such let it be recorded in his tory. To-morrow morning we start for the fa mous geysers. Jack Baronett is our guide, anc a most excellent one he is, too, having pro bably had more experience than any other man in this country. D. W. F. Western Termin ns of the N. P. R. R It would seem from tho following items that the town of Tacoma, on Puget Sound at the terminus of the N. P. Railroad, is spring ing up mushroom-like. Rather a poor place for men of small means to go to, we should judge, from the high prices lands are held at outside of the town. We clip from the Tacoma Tribune of the 15th ult ; Enough of the railroad town-site (eighty acres) being ready and slashed for burning, fires were started all over the tract yesterday Last night aud to-day the harbor and sur rounding couutiy have been completely en veloped in a dense cloud of smoke. A wharf is to be immediately built at the foot of McCarver street. The wharf will extend 450 feet from the bank, having a bridge 30 feet wide, and a front 150 feet long and 60 feet deep. At extreme low tide there will be 15 feet of water at the end. Before the end of the .week pile-driving will commence. The steamer Phantom arrived during the night from Seattle, towing a barge loaded with lumber. Considerable building mate rial is being used in this city at present, and the prospect is for a great increase in the consumption next month. Chaney & Atkins have chartered the Blakely pile-driver, and will bring it to' 1 a coma to-night to aid in the building of our wharves. The lands six miles from Tacoma can be purchased at about $40 per acre ; and within two miles of town for from $80 to $100 per acre. The pews in the new Episcopal church number sixteen, each intended to seat six persons. - —«■»■«< ieoi ►» -- TI1£ GREAT MASONIC TEMPLE IN PHILADELPHIA. The Finest Structure of the Rind in the World—A Glimpse of the Interior. The Masonic Temple of Philadelphia, the finest structure of the kind in the world, is now completed, and will be dedicated on the 26th of September with imposing ceremonies. The Philadelphia Press says of the inspection of the Temple : During the evening Broad street in front of the new temple was crowded with people, who lingered for nearly two hours viewing the spleudid structure from without. In order to allow the public a partial view of the interior, the front entrance was opened clear, showing the main hallway lighted up with the large pendant chandeliers and side brack ets. A partial view was also given of the grand stairways. The front elevation, as illuminated last evening, presented a unique sight, totally unlike anything else to be seen in this coun try. Everything, although massive, seemed to be in elegant proportion, and so nothing seemed unpleasantly heavy. The west stained glass window above the portal, which is 27 feet high and nine feet wide, looked as if its proportions were really one-third of the area given, but the figures stood out in bold relief, and the pictures formed th e point de resistance of the front elevation. The thirteen ornamental lamps around the sidewalk were all lighted, an A were much ad mired by all who saw them. Entering the edifice by the Juniper street gate, the guests were immediately ushered into the library room, in which the book-cases and furniture are already placed, and some of the cases are filled with standard works, such as the wri tings of Prescott, Hallam, Macaulay, Clarke, Motley, Irving, Shakespeare, Hume, Frank lin, and others, besides hundreds of works on Free Masonry and the arts and sciences. From this assembly hall the visitors entered the grand hallway, where a few moments were spent in viewing the unusal splendor of the architecture and ornamentation. The gorgeous chandeliers attracted especial atten tion, as did the fountains, lavateorie9 and stair-cases. Crossing the hallway the Oriental room was inspected. Here the furniture and fixtures were found profusely ornate, the carmine picking being especially worked in the furni ture, fixture and carpets. The banqueting room, immediately west, was much admired, being lighted with a row of seven large pen dant chandeliers, with their hundreds of glass drops, in the old style, flashing back spark ling reflections upon the auditors. The other rooms were all in complete order, the carpets being down and the furniture in place. In the Grand Chapter room and Asylum for the Knights Templar the grand organs were tested and declared to be excellent instru ments. The veils in the Grand Chapter room formed an especial theme for admiration. All present expressed therfaselves agreeably surprised at the brilliant effect of the illumi nating apparatus, which is the most extensive and the most perfect on this continent. The interior of this temple gives the visitor a very good realization of the marble halls of romance. Although everything is massive, nothing appears heavy or disproportionate. The columns seem to vanish, as it were, and nowhere intercept the view, which is one of continually mutuating beauties and novelties. The arrangements for the grand parade of the Fraternity on the 26th are nearly com pleted. It is expected that there will be 30,000 Free Masons in line, with about one hundred bauds. The dress to be worn on the occasion is a full suit of black, with black silk hat and white gloves. The officers of Lodges will wear the jewels significant of their rank, suspended on the left lappels of their coats from blue ribbons. the Trottutf Race.

At Truckee City, on the Central .Pacific Railroad, there occurred about nine o'clock night before last a most terrible impromptu six-shooter duel between Andy Fuget, a car penter. and Jack White, a miner, resulting in the almost instant killing of Fuget and the mortal wounding of White. It is said that there existed between the men an old grudge, also that there had been some recent trouble growing of out a door having been kicked in by White ; though some assert that this last quarrel had been settled. Two or three days ago it is reported that the two men met on the depot grounds, when Fuget said to White that they might as well settle their trouble then and there. "Draw and defend yourself, said Fuget. White said he was not armed, when Fuget told him he believed him a liar. The men then separated, but it seems that the understanding was that the fight would take place the first time they met. Night before last, it would appear, was their first meeting after that at the depot grounds. The men came together at the corner of Main street and a little alley running up into the Chinese quarter of the town, just in front of Burk halter's store, when the battle opened. There were several persons in the neighborhood, but no one who saw the shooting could tell which man fired the first shot. Fuget is said to have come down the alley leading from Chinatown, when he w-as met by White, who was passing along the sidewalk. Instantly the shooting began, Fuget placing himself behind an awning post, at the corner of the street and alley, and White standing on the sidewalk. The firing is said to have been very rapid ; so rapid, indeed, that many who heard it were of the opinion that more than two men were engaged in the shooting. The majority of those who were in the vicinity when tlie shooting began ran away as fast as their legs would carry them, but two or three men, who sought shelter in the iron doorways of Burkhalter's store, stood their ground aud witnessed the whole battle. White fell first, and striking upon the edge of the sidewalk, rolled into a gutter about 18 inches in depth. Almost the same instant Fuget fell, seemingly from the effect of White's last shot, rolling into the same gutter in which White was lying, and at no great distance from him. Between the two lay a bundle of gunny sacks, owing to the presence of which they were unable to see each other. Fuget now began crawling for White, who lay in the gutter unable to rise. He dragged himself along the gutter until he reached the gunny sacks. He climed up on these until he could see his mortal enemy, when he fired at him his two remaining shots. White aroused himself aud by great effort raised his pistol and fired his last shot, which rolled Fuget from his position on the sacks and ended the desperate and bloody fight. When the thing ceased and only groans were to be heard, the citizens rapidly collected and soon a great crowd was on the bloody battle field. The bleeding and groaning men w'ere carried to where they could he cared for. Fuget, however, need«d but little care, as he was in a dying condition when taken up, and lived less than ten minutes. The shot which proved fatal struck him in the left groin, severing a large artery. He bled frightfully, and, as we have said, lived but a few minutes. He is supposed to have received several other wounds, how many our informant did not learn, as no critical examination of the body was made during his stay in the town. The wounds of White were three in num ber and of such a nature that they must neces sarily prove fatal. He was alive when our informant left the town, but is probably dead ere this. One shot passed through his body, from side to side, just above the hips; an other entered his right breast and ranging back lodged against his spine; the third struck him in the lower part of the abdomen, passing through the bladder. After the shoot ing, and while his wounds were being exam ined, White said that he was fired at by an other man besides Fuget. This man he said was a large person with heavy black whisk ers, who stood in the alley leading up into Chinatown, and fired three shots at him, after which he ran up the alley. Afterwards, on being more closely questioned about this man, White refused to say anything more in regard to him or to give his fiame, even if he knew it. Many persons who were in the neighbor hood at the time of the shooting are quite certain that more than two men were engaged in it. They say that it seems impossible that two men, armed with common six-shooters, could have done such rapid firing, and when the men were taken up and the pistols ex amined there was a general expression of surprise on seeing that they were not self cockers. Several bullets struck the iron shut ters of the store, and the men who screened themselves in the doorways seemed to have occupied a tolerably hot,position. By some is supposed that the men were hunting each other at the time, as but a minute before the shooting began, White came to the door of a billiard saloon near by and peered in as though looking for some one. Both men were formerly residents of this city and vicin ity. Jake White at one time worked in the Yellow Jacket mine, Gold Hill. Those who know the men say that neither was married.

BY Massachusetts Republican State Con vention. * W orcester, September 10.—It was three o'clock before the Republican State Conven tion assembled. Mr. Rice led off with a mo tion to thro\y open the galleries to the public. General Butler demanded fair play. His friends had gone home, as the galleries had not been thrown open in the morning, and he contended that it would be merely filling the galleries with citizens of Worcèster if they were now opened. Rice replied that tw r o years ago the same motion was made by General Batter himself, and carried. General Butler.—There is this difference. I made a motion two years ago, "that within fifteen minutes after the convention was call ed to order." I only appeal to the fairness of this convention, that if the galleries are thrown open now it will be practically filling them With citizens of Worcester, to the ex clusion of the rest of the Commonwealth. I have a high respect for the citizens of Wor cester; [laughter,] a very high respect; [renewed laughter,] and it is increasing every day, [uproarious laughter,] but I ask them to give me fair play. The President then put the motion and de clared that the ayes had it. The vote was doubted, and ten minutes were wasted in a count, when the motion to open the galleries was carried by a vote of 531 to 488. All the afternaon was consumed iu discus sing the preamble and resolution offered by General Butler, directing that a delegate named Green be debarred from voting in the convention, as he had declared his intention not to vote for General Butler if nominated. The question was debated with a good deal of spirit by Geo. F. Hoar and W. W. Rice in opposition, and Gen. Butler, John L. Swift, Gen. Briggs, and others in favor. Butler made a great point of his fealty to party, and declared that he would not bolt if defeated. An incident of the debate was a speech by Rev. James Freeman Clark, an anti-Butler delegate, in which he took strong grounds in favor of the right of every delegate to vote as he choose at an election, regardless of the ac tion of a convention. He opposed the idea that the motion of a convention was binding, and declared that a bolt was always in order. Hon. George F. Hoar having moved that the resolution be referred to a committee (the original motion) it was adopted by 584 to 539. The total of this vote being more that the total number of delegates, it was agreed by a vote of 586 to 406 that all subsequent votes be taken by count. Pending a motion by Gen. Butler to verify the former vote by which the resolution was referred, the convention took a recess until 7j o'clock p. m. At the opening of the evening session Gen. Butler took the floor aud withdrew his motion to verify the result of the last vote by coun ties. He said that he was satisfied that a ma jority of the delegates were in favor of the nomination of Governor Washburn. He did not care to delay the business of the conven tion by resort to parliamentary tactics. He declared anew' his fealty to the party, and said that he did not want to do anything to cause a dissension in its ranks, and conse quently withdrew his name, and said that he saw' no cause to run independently. At 7:55 p. m. Governor Washburn was nominated bj' acclamation. The nomination w as received very quietly. A feeble effort was made to doubt the vote, but it was drowned in a storm of "noes,-" and the nomi nation was declared carried. The nomina tion w T as seconded by J. M. Usher, of Bos ton, a prominent member of the Butler party. The remainder of the State ticket is made up as follows, without opposition: Lieutenant Governor, Thos. Talbot; Attorney General, Charles R. Train; Secretary of State, Oliver Warner; Auditor, Charles Endicott; Treas urer, Charles Adams. Bold Attempt to Rob a United Staten Army Paymaster. Denver, Col., September 10.—The News' spècial from Hugo, Colorado, to-day, contains the following startling information : A bold attempt was made at River Bend this morning at daybreak to rob the U. S. A. Paymaster, Miyor Brooks, as he was going from the train to the 6th cavalry, about three miles from River Bend, to pay the troops. He got off the western bound passenger train early this morning, and was met at the sta- tion by Capt. Irwin and Lieut. Wetmore of the 6th cavalry, with an ambulance, and was halted by two men on foot, who w ere masked. Three shots were fired by them from a shot gun loaded with buckshot, one charge taking effect in Captain Irwin's back. At first his injuries were considered slight, but he has since commenced bleeding internally, and is now spitting blood. Another shot was fired by the robbers from a pistol, the ball passing across Major Brooks' lap and through Mrs. Roberts' hand, making a painful wound. Lieut. Wetmore then fired his pistol at one of the robbers, named G. W. Graham, formerly Captain of the 10th cavalry at Fort Leaven- worth. The ball passed through his body just below the heart, and he is dying. The other robber, John Dyck, formerly keeper of No. 1 stage station on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, escaped, but the cav- alry are after him, with hopes of his capture. --- mi - Askawination. Monroe,. La., September 10.—On Saturday last Judge T. S. Crawford adjourned the District Court at Wainsboro, Franklin parish, till Tuesday. He accompanied District At tornev Arthur S. Harris to Columbia, Cald well parish, aud spent the Sabbath at that place. They started from Oolumbia on their return to Wamsboitv oh Monday morning, and when Iw-elve miles southwest of Wains boro, they were waylaid by four men lying in ambush in the midst of a thicket several miles in extent., and murdered in cold blood. Judge Crawford w r as shot in five places, in the head and body, and it is thought that he struggled with his assassins, as his head was badly bruised and mangled. Harris was shot in the back of the head and in the thigh, and his home was shot under him. It is thought that the murders w-ere committed by a party of desperadoes known as Tom Winne's gang. The leader of this party was tried at the last term of court, before Judge Crawford, Columbia, for murder, and convicted, be ing prosecuted by District Attorney Harris. He made his escape from jail before hf w as sentenced, and made repealed threats that he w'ould kill.the judge and prosecuting attor ney. The people of the parish are indignant and a large number of men have started in pursuit. It is thought that the murderers will o rertaken within 24 hours. at in all the of N. the dent who and this the sides I Washington Intelligence. Washington,* September 10.—The Com missioner of Internal Reyenue has received a telegram from Deputy Commissioner Sw'eet, at Springfield, Illinois, stating that he has ar rested Deputy Collector Smith, and has had a warrant issued for several others, on the charge of being implicated in frauds with Collector Harper. Washington, September 11.—Col. Robb, one of the ex-Comraissioners to enquire into the depredations committed on persons and property of American citizens on the Rio Grande border, has recently received numer ous letters stating that such acts arc continu ally occurring, and that since the Commission left that'section last spring large droves of cattle have been driven to' the Mexican side from ranches between Brownsville and Bra zos de Santiago, and between Brownsville and Rio Grande City. These thieving opera tions were committed in daylight, ana in sev eral instances exulting gestures were made by the Mexicans who Irai escaped with their booty, to the U. S, cavalry who had pursued them and halted on the American side of the river. In addition to cattle stealing, murders have been committed not far from fort3 Clark and Concho. It will be recollected that the Commissioners reported an actual loss of about $15,000,000 by such incursions, and that amount has been considerably increased since the term of the Commission expired. There is no doubt that the attention of. Con gress will again be called to this subject by the President, with a view to the protection of citizens of the United States on the border. The demand on Mexico to put an end to marauding expeditions has been unsuccess ful. Gentlemen of high position say they see no remedy for the evil except in the acquisi tion of a portion of Northern Mexico, com manding both sides of the river, and that such acquisition is not improbable, consider ing that Mexico will he unable to pay the ag gregate damages which Texans have sus tained by the inefficiency of Mexico to re strain its citizens from their w T rong doings. Washington, September 11.—The bond for $15,500,000, the amount of the Geneva award, is held by the Secretary of State in that Department, and is now placed for safe keeping in the Treasury. . The bond is made payable to the order of the Secretary of State. This bond is for the largest amount of money ever issued by any government in a single transaction. Photographs of the bond and certificate of deposit w ere completed at the Treasury Department to-day and copies sent to the President and each member of the Cabinet. On completion of the business on Tuesday, Sir Edward Thornton promptly in formed his government by telegraph of the fact. The review of the Polaris expedition by the celebrated Mr. Peterman of Gotha, has been translated into English from the Ger man under direction of the Secretary of the Navy. The doctor says, that all the circum stances considered, it must be conceded that this is the most important expedition that ever went to the Arctic regions. The English talked loudly for nine years, and criticised freely all other opinions and endeavors, they themselves doing nothing all the while. The high toned acts of the American government will, he hopes, contribute towards bringing to an end the loud talk of the English and induce them at last to fit and send out an ex pedition in 1874. New York News. New York, September 10.—The mass meeting at Cooper Institute this evening, in favor of cheap transportation, was unusually large and important. The call for the meet ing was signed by a majority of the heaviest business firms in the city. Mayor Have meyer presided, and addresses were made by a number of prominent merchants. An as sociation, to be known as the New York Cheap Transpdrtation Association, was formed, and resolutions adopted declaring it to be the true policy of the Government to protect the producing interest ot commerce from corporations and monopolies, which tend to subvert the rights of the people; pronouncing a double track railroad exclu ively for freight absolutely necessary, aud demanding reform in the management of railroads. The frequent and arbitrary changes in freight rates are denounced and uniform rates demanded.
