A TALE OF WY0MIXG VALLEY. 'Do you see lluit l ititlscupe ?' said the tilii man tu me, na we pused upon the etlye of the muuntnin riiiul, and liaiki-d dunn into the Wyoming benenllt us. 'Welt, tlmt spot, cnltti and beautiful ns it r.nw lis n ns of.ee the scene ut mHsaaere.

Yet if (he subject be so piiiiiftil to you, 1 dure scarcely make tin n-qtieM.' ; 'Ho. my. no, said the old man. sadly ; '1 will tell ii. fur the promise it. of ln etamling, and 1 feel lo-dny, us if I could nuirnte tlmt tr.i-cfy iili less i motion than usuiil. Sit dun n i ii this uxk nnd gne me a moment to it: I mil thin einitni t:ee my story. ' While th- lit n nn iprd the pi'ispirntion from liis I.mim. i:t. d silt liinninjj hiuiself Kith Lis truud-iiiiiiiud stiniiiti r-liat, I took ihe pluee pi.inted out I y him, n iir his side, mid p t.i tlie lnonii iits ll.at lapsed befoie he b (ii.n Lis i.ur ration, in inzing on the hiirfiscnpi I efote me. f itiitijjon a huge botildi r, on the lirnil of a mutilitaie, just iieie the hill begnn o tin, e .nun into ll.e talhy, ne commanded a x ii w of one of the most unrivnled liihdcnpes in the wiuld, Tu our l.-lt rose up the nioun- tuin, bol l, ni;'t;cd and barren, like the back of some vast nmnsier reined niramst the skv but ou tin- right iui-rposed to ptevent the v ow ; wlxe iokeliness so Inr exceeded my rx- peeliitions, that for some minutes I L'aZ'-d upiin the sei ne in mute a Imiruiinn. Beneath me slreaehed tile vallev, diversitietl with iri-mly sloping elevations, nnd sprinkled with fields of Men train; while here nnd there a patch of woodland, with its dnik green hue, lay .-luir.btring on the landscape the suifnce of the forest ever and anon varying to a lighter tint ns the wind swept over tin- tree tops. Right through the centre of the vallry mean dered the river, now rolling betwixt blnfT bnnls,and now stealing gently among the rich meadow-lands in the distance, until at length it turned to the left, nnd striking the foot of the fur hills, was lost behind the profile of ihe mountain before us. In the centre of the vale was the village, with its white honses and airy church-steeple, smiling over Ihe scene. faraway on the horrison streached a line of bills, their dmk blue .summits half hid by the clouds which wrapt them ns in a veil of gauze. No sound came ftom the valley. Occasional ly the twitter of a bird would be heard through the surrounding trees, while the low twinkle of a tiny waterfall on tli left, kept monoto nously sounding on our ears. 1 lie nioriiinir rays of a summer s sun poured down upon the landscape, and every thing around was hrK'ht and gav, and beautiful. I was still lost in admiration at the lovclim ss of the scene. w hen the old man signified his readines to commence ihe tale. llis now fifty years ago,' he begun, 'since I came to this country a young frontier man, with a hardy constitution, a love of adventure, and the reputation of being the best shot on the border; the place was at that lime settled principally by families from Connecticut, and even then bore minks of its present luxuiietit cultivation. Many of the families wire in good circumstances, olln rs had seen better days, and altogether the society was more retmed than was usual on the frontier. Amontr all the famalii'S, however, in th valley, none pleased me so much ns that of Mr. Beverly and i f his fin side circle bis second daughter, Kate, was, in my eyi s, ti e gun. How shall I describe h r beauty 1 Lovely, without be ing bi auiifiil, ith u sy 1 h-like I'm m, a laugh as j- yi us ns the canel.tf a biic', a step lighter thiili thai of a young fawn in, sportive play, n d Sj.osiiiott so unliable as to win, iireeistibiy, the love of all uho in- tier; Kale Beverly was scarcely seventeen, belore she bad a host ol n'.mirets, nnd might have won any youth in ihe valley. Why it was that she preferred me over all the rest. I cannot say; perhaps ti was the consciousness of some mystetious sympathy linking us together, or perhaps it was that we both ratne from the same place in Connecticut, nnd had been schoolmates in cliililhood so it was, howevor. It siam began to In- known throughout the valley that before anoll er season should elapse, Kate . Beverly woul l h-c.ini.- my wife. 'Oh! how happy were those days timhnp pv indii d lo last. I will not il well upon lliem, for they fill my soul with agony. Sullice il losay.tli.it w hill-dreaming of bliss such as mortal never before experiet.ced. the war ol the revolution broke out and, after a hard struggle betwei n my passions nnd my duty, ihe biller contou red, and 1 joined the army. Kate did not atteirij t to dissuade me from the act she rather loved me the more for it Though her woman's nature caused her to shed ti-ar at my departure, her reason told her I was riuht, and .-he bid me God speed. 'Heaven bless you, Harry,' she said, 'and biinir this war Ion speedy conclusion. I can not bid you stay, but I pray that the necessi ty of your absence may soon cease. Time rolled by the American cause was still doubtful, and the war bid fair to be pro tracted into year. I . bad to be . a captain in the regiment, when t received informa tion that the lories and Indians intended ma king a descent on the valley of Wyoming. I - is 3 mit'.aMt v'i '. . knew the unprotected situation of my adopted district, and trembled for the, life of those I held most dear. At first a discredited the rumor chance, however, threw ' in my way an opportunity oft ascertaining . the- reality of the reported descent, ana i oecame convincea that a moment was not to be lost, if I would save the lives of those 1 loved at home. My determination was at once taken 1 solicited for leave of absence il was refused ; I then resigned my commission, and set forth lo Wy oming. , i . .- .. . . .-..!. I never shall forget my emotions when I drew nearlhe ill-fated place; it was on ihe very day of the massacre and the nrst intimation 1 had ol Hie calamity was tiie mangled body of one of the inhabitants, whom I had known, floating down the stream. A cold shiver ran through every vein as 1 gazed on the terrible sight, and a thousand fears agitated ' my bo som; but my worst surmises fell far short of the truth. - v ben, hours after, 1 met some ot the fugitives, and they rehearsed to me that tale of horror, I stood for a moment thunder struck, refusing to believe that beings in human form couid perpetrate such deeds but it was all tia true. , Almost my first inquiry was for Kate no one knew, alas! v. hut had become of her. One of those who had escaped the fight told me that her father had been killed at the be ginning of the Conflict mid that deprived of a protector, she had probably fallen n victim to the infuriated savages, while the - other in habitants were severally engaged in protect ing themselves. How 1 cursed them fortius Itishness! And yet could 1 expect ought else of human nature, than that each should protect those dearest to them, even lo the de sertion ol others? But my mind was soon made up. I re- solved come what might, to asceituiu clearly the fate of Kate so thai if dead, I might re venge her. and if living I might rescue her. liidilmg late well to the Dying group, 1 shouldered my tine, and. struck out boldly lulu the forest, trusting to the guidance ol that God who never deserts us in our extrem ities. 1 w ill not lire you by a protracted narra tive; I will only say, after numerous inqui ries trom the fugitives 1 met, t learned that Kate had been last seen in the hands of a par ty of savages. This was sufficient for it clue I mice more began to hope. I wailed until nightfall, when 1 sought Ihe spot which bad been described lo me, as ihe one where Kate had been last seen and never shall 1 forget my feelings of almost rapturous pleasure, w hen 1 tuund in the neighboring foiest a fragment f her dress sticking on a bush, by w hich ' it iiad doubtless been torn from her in passing. 1 was now satisfied that Kate hate been car ried oft- captive. Fortunately, 1 had met in Ihe group of fugitives, a hunter who had been un der some obligations to her family, and he was easily persuaded to join me in the search. Together we now began a pursuit of the sav ages. He was an adept in the forest warfare could follew the trail as a hound the chase knew the course which would most likely be chosen by a flying party of Indians, and withall was one of (he keenest shots that car ried a rifle on the border. 'It's my opinion,' said he, that these var mints did not belong lo the regular body of Indians w ho followed Butler .though even they wete bad enough. I think, however, lie wouldn't suffer a deed like this. These villains seemed to have acted on their own behalf---and if so they would fly to the back country us quick as possible. You may depend upon it we shall overtake them if we pursue that way. 'I felt the truth of llnse remarks, and ns sented to them at once. In less than a quarter of an hour after we first discovered the trail, we were in pursuit of the savages. 'Let me hasten to the close. Hour after hour, all through the live long day, we pur sed the flyinir savacfis crossin-r snanins. clambering over rocks, fording streams, and picking our nay, until, towards nightfall, .we reached the edge of an open space, or, ns it were, a meadow, shut in by geiuty sloping hills-. ..... . Hist, said my companion, we are upon them. Do you not see that thin thread of smoke cutling upward over the top of yonder hemlock ?' 'Aye, it must be them let us on.' 'Softly, or we lose all. : We know not cer tainly, that this is the party re Seek; let us reconnoitre. 'Slowly and stealthily, trembling lest a twig should crack under our feet, we crept up to wards the edge of the meadow, and peeping cauliouslv through the underwood, beheld the objects of our search in six tall swarthy sava ges, sitting smoking round the remains of a fire. Al a little distance with her hands hound and her eyes upraised to heaven, sat my own Kale. Oh, how my heart leaped at the sinht. 1 raised my rifle convulsively nnd was about to tire, when my companion caught my hand and said 'Softly or you spoil all. Lei us get the var mints in ranoe, and we shall fire with some tasle. Hist!" . 'This last exclamation was occasioned by the' sudden rising of one of the savages. He gaz.cd a moment cautiously around, and then advancing towards the thicket where we lay concealed. I drew my breath in and trembled at the beating of my own heart. The savage still approached. My companion laid his hand upon my arm, and pointed from my rifle to one of (he Indians. I understood him. At this juncture, the advancing savasje warned of our presence by the crackling of an unlucky twig beneath my companion's feet, sprang back with a loud yell towards the fire., 'Now," said my companion sternly. "Quick ns lightning I riTsed my pipce nnd tired. My companion did the same. There heating savage and one of his companions fell dead upon the ground. Each of us then sprang to a tree, loading as we ran. It wits well we did. forin an instant the enemv was upon us. Shall I describe that dread ftd fia lit? My e moii.in forbids it.

I had only been prevented, hitherto, from rescuing Kate, by the knowledge that of the kind, while the savages were still num erically superior to us, would end in the cer tain ruin of us both ; but now worlds could not restrain rue, and, clubbing; my rifle,'for -tb ;' s.-r . . i i:.-...- -. w . covert, shouting to my companion Onl on!

I subsequently - learned his sad tale from others, and then learned the manner in which Kate had been carried off.

Brethren Crump and Noel were members ol t f same Primitive Baptist Church, and both clever, honest men, who paid their taxes and debts as the same annually acrued, with a regularity at once (Juristtan like and com menaaole. It, when settling cay came. Brother Noel was "short," Brother Crump was sure to be in funds: and, on the other hand, it almost seemed providential how, if Brother Crump fell -behind," Brother Noel always had a surplus, - Thus borrowing from and landing to each other, worshipping at the same church, and living only a mile apart, an intimacy gradually ripened between them so that at last they did not hesitate to speak in the Iraest and most familar manner to each other, even in regard to their respective foibles. Now, it came to pass, that Brother. Crump, during the liveliest period of the cotton season, drove into Wetumpka, Ala., and disposed of his "crap" of ten bales, at the lair price ol 12 cents per pound.' It was more than he expected, nnd as the world was easy with him, lie determined to invest, and did actually invest, a portion of the proceeds of the sale of his cotton in a barrel of western whisky,' paying, therefor at the rate of, precisely, two pounds of middling cotton for one gallon of 'ditto" whisky. Of coorse it was '-narrated in the settlement that "old Crump" had bought a "whole barrel." and after a few weeks people began to observe that his nose grew redder and bis eyes more moist; The idea that the brother Ci ump whs "drinking too much" diffused itself in the neighborhood, until, as one miyht say, it be came epidemical. People talked - and talked more especially "what few" of : other de nomination of christians dwelt thereabout.' Brother Nh:1 ' was "sore troubled" at the scandal which crirculated about his brother and friend, and especially regretted the in jury it brought to the "ciety" at Sharon. .... So one morning, he stepped over to Brother Crump's, and found the old man in a half doze in his little porch. "Wont you take a drink ?" . asked Brother Crump, ns soon as he was aware of the pre sence of his neighbor. r "Why, yes, Im not agin a dram when a body wants it." Brother Crump got his bottle, and the friends took a dram a piece, , Don't you think. Brother Noel' said Crump "that sperits is a blessin ?" . 'Y-e-s!' responded Noel, 'spirits is a blessin, but accordin to my notion, it's a blessin that some of us abuses." Well, now. Brother Noel, who do you think abuses the blessin? Well, it's hard to s-iy but people talk don't you think you drink too much, Brother Crump? , . 'It hard lo say it's hard to say I replied Crump. -"Sometimes I've thought I was a drinkin too much then agin I'd think maybe not What is man? A weak wurrum of dust! What the Lord to sav wether I was noin too fur in spirits. I put the the whole 'sponsibility on him ! I prayed to Mm, ef I w as drinkin too much to take away my appetite for spirits.' "What then. Brother Crump ?" groaned Brother Noel, piously.. , , "And," replied Crump, "I prayed that pray er three times, and lie hain't done it! So I'm clear of the 'sposibilitv, nnv way." . "The Lord's will be done!" ejaculated Noel. and, after taking another "dram, he went home.thinking all the way how cleverly Broth er Crump had shifted the responsibility Desperation. I know 'tis a sin too But I'm bent on the notion ; I'll throw myself into The deep briny ocean, ' Where mad eels nnd cat-fish Select me for diet ; There soundly, I'll slumber . 7 Beneath the tough billow, ' And crabs without number ' ' Shall crawl o'er my pillow ; But my spirits shall wahder through gay co rral bowers, " r -; ,- . -.'

This is as it should ba and is the re. suit of the sharp contest which has prevailed at Harrisburgi., for the month ' past, in rela tion to this road. The bill, aimed, at the de struction, in effect, of the charter f the com pany, by requiring the work to be prosecuted at both ends simultaneously, and .imposed a tax of half a cent per mile on every passenger carried over it. jt passed the Senate and was sent to the House. . There and ; amendment was adopted, taking away the power from anv company io construct the road from Erie to the west line of the State of .Pennsylvania, so as to connect with the Ohio road. ' The bill was then sent back to the Senate for concur rence, but the' Senate ' refused to concur, as stated by us yesterday. . It was then returned, the House receded from the ' amendment, & committee of conference was appointed, but could not agree, and so (he iufamous measure was finally and cttecrually delealed. For this we have to thank the wiser, more liberal and enlightened portions of the Legis lature of Pennsylvania. ' They litre determin ed to see justice done: and, in this mutter, they have triumphed.- 2?ut there are those in that Slate, of narrow ' and contracted - ideas, whose only motive of action are selfish, and who cannot permit any work of public improve ment to go forward, unless they themselves are directly benefited; and. from the influence of such men in her couueils, Pennsylvania has suffered much.- -To stimulate and increase this depraved feeling, we have - noticed . that the Pittsburgh Gazette, the Pittsburgh Morn ing Post, and the papers of Pittsburgh gener ally, have ministered for some time past; and directly and indirectly, they have done what ever was in their power to prevent the exten sion of Ihe Lake Shore Road through Penn sylvania. ; To oblige travellers to cross the Al leghahies, they are willing to block up all oth er highways. , '.To compel them to visit that beautiful spot, at the confluence of the Alle ghany and Monongahela, they would build a high wall . and dig a deep ditch in the north-west part of Pennsylvania. . And what have you in Ohio, say they, to do with legis lation, in Pensy lvania , or what right have you to question Pennsylvanian p jicy ? . Some might at least. It has been a Roman maxim, "to use your own property, that you do not injure your neighbors." . Has the whole State of Ohio no voice in this matter, or rights to be respected ? Is it no concern of hers, that this great avenue, through Pennsylvania be opened, nnd be opened speedily? .-, We are gratified, therefore, at the result of this legislation. : ihe franklin Canal compa ny has received the endorsement of the liber al and enlightened in the legislature of Penn sylvania; andean now prosecute the construc tion of the Lake Shore Road there, without molestation, r i Cleveland Herald. 7 77 7 . Corn- 77 7" Quantitity of seed per acre. A peck of seed is the quantity usually estimated as be ing sufficient to plan, an acre five or six ker nels should be.dropt in each hill. Put a pint of lar into a tub; over this pour Iwo or three gallons of boiling water, stir un til the tar is dissolved nnd incorporated with the water, then put a bushel of corn in and continne to stir until all the grains are coated. J o make the grains separate easily,, they should then have equal quantities of piaster and ashes strewn over them,, and the mass stirred until the grains of. corn are covered with the mixture of plaster and ashes they may then be planted. No more prepared corn must be taken out at a time than can be planted through each day. It may remain several days after prep aration, if excluded from the air, without in jury, but does not bear exposure so well . i here is another method of preparing seed corn, which is said not only to protect it from birds aud insects, but to promise its early growth. It is this: - v Dissolve two jioondsof copperas in as much warm water as will cover a bushel of com, and let it soak twenty-five hours; then drain off the liquid, stir in a half a gallon soft soap, so as to coat the grains of corn ; this done, add as much plaster as will separate the grains and render them (it for planting. . We have prepared seed corn with the de coction of copperas and dried with plaster,and was pleased with the resultand have no doubt that the addition of soft soap, as recommend ed, will prove, on trial, to be an improvement Weak solutions of saltpetre, and Glauber salts, are spoken highly of as soaks for the prparation of seed corn; the former we have used, thought well ot it; the latter is highly commended by others. .. The distance of the rows must be regulat ed by the heigh lb of the stalks some kinds bear closer planting than others for a gener al crop upon a large scale, four feet each way will bi found an advantageous distance, as it gives ample room to work the crop, and suffi cient stalks to produce a large number of ctrs. " , "."'.'. , In very strong soils, where 'plenty f ma nure is applied, force abundant, and great pro ducts desired, the width of rows may be re duced lo three feet and the corn drilled at a foot apart; but as the drilling requires a great deal of hand hoeinc, which is expensive, if cannot be recommended for any but small premium lots, as cost of labor would eat up ihe profit of a crop, if carried out on an exten sive scale.
