Deak Pakkkts: Passed to-day the re nowned S.rtln Springs, which to all travellers rc sulijccts nf grrnt wonder and curiosity. Crossed a poisonous stream just before we renclied them, ground for some distance Mmui'd soft nn'l miry. These springs, six in number, are situated upon a gravelly mound, They come op from the surface of the earth. some tHStint; if sulphur, and others of soda. A alien distance beyond them, on the bnnks f I lie river. Si. am Boat Springs boil up from uiht to ten feet, with a white foam and roar ing sound, and are indeed the greatest curi Obity of all ! the water in one of them, is el 'fir and very warm, tasting strongly of soda; an other nenr by, is muddv, and quite cold. The rocks mound these Springs, wherever the water boils over them, are of a deep red. The country for miles around, appears to have b-r-'n the s;en of volcanic eruptions, or fear ful i-i :!iq'i!iki-8, and the earth sunds hollow i- ; empty, iii riding over it Camped near miiim Indian lentK and trading posts, not far in .in the springs. They visited our camp, sat about our fires, and watched us while rating, both impudent and ignorant I vasparticu- larly struck, with the dignified bearing ( one of them, who seated on a prancing steed, ex tended i is hand in token of friendship, and wanted to trade his pony for the 'good sqvaw,' as he called me. This was qute flat tering to my vanity ! June 30th. After travelling four miles this morning, we came to the junction of the roads. The left hand one, which we took, is Myers and Hackspeth's Cut Off," the other goes by Fort Hall. We left Bear River here, and travelled over a valley for ten miles, when we again ascended the mountains, over which we slowly wended our way for five miles, till we reached Willow creek, a stream or the purest cold water, where we found wild cur rants and strawberries; here we stopped for dinner, it being the first good water since we left Bear river; and a long distance it seemed to me, having rode on horseback all the way, and over warm and dusty roads. I was glad to rest myself till the teams came up. After eating a dinner of bread and milk, we pro ceeded onward, and soon after ascended mountain two miles in height, on the top a fine spring. After this we descended into a deep ravine between the mountains, so nar row and sideling, as almost to apset our wag ons, being decidedly the worst we hav yet passed a great many wagons were before and behind us, raising such clouds of dust, as I never saw before: this, and riding so far on horseback, gave me such a headache, that by the lime weuamp"d,on a branch of Big creek, 1 mlil not sit up have not felt So thoroug- lv sivk since I left home. To endure days of sickness on this trip, aod be obliged to rids in a wagon day after day, over such awful road; a this must. very bard. July 1st. Arose almost frte from thepsio in my head, which prevented me from sleep ing, ton as bright a moonlight night as ever visited ibis world of ours. Reached Big creek this merning, three miles distant, to ths left it the road ; whre Charles had come in ad vance of us, and caught some fine trout Wending our way over the hills for nine miles farther, we reached March creek, where we stopped for noon. Then ascended the mountain gradually for six miles roads very fine after descending one and a half miles, reached a beautiful spring at the left of the road. Camped one mile and a half farther, on a small stream with excellent grass, and plenty of cedar and dry willows. The mus- quitoes have left us and dust is now our prin ciple annoyance. Although we are now in tha enjayment of good health, and getting along evea better than we expected, yet we olten bnd ourselves counting the days which shall bring us lo the end of our journey. bond company continued change of scenery and bright hope of the future, make our trip really pleasant I while it is divested of many of the hardships and privations which others have sunered. out for these, we should often sigh for home, and the society of mends so far distant, that even tbe inter change of letters is at this time impossible but having undertaken tbe journey, let us still exercise tbe fortitude which enabled us to commence it; and cultivate that cheerfulness, in which despondency shall have no part July 2d. We have to regret this morning the loss of the best cow belonging to our mess, which died last night from drinking poison ous water. This will deprive us of milk for dinner, which certainly is a luxury here. Have not been out of sight of snow, since we first came in view of Larime's Peak. Have travelled 15 miles, and stopped on Gravelly Creek till evening. From thence we ascend ed a mountain seven miles to tbe summit, and descended by a very steep and circuitous route, both difficult and dangerous. In some places, the road between tbe mountains was so narrow, that a driver could not walk be side his team, while the dust completely cov ered us, and was of course almost suffocating. Camped about 1 1 o'clock at night, at tbe foot of the mountain, and retired to rest; and for a few short hours, slept as taettly in our wag ons, as though surrounded by all the luxuries of the most sumptuous apartments. Our rea son for travelling at night was, because there is no water from Gravelly creek for twenty six miles we brought water from that place, to prepare our breakfast te-morrow morning. July 3d. Started early this morning, and travelled seventeen miles over a good, but very dusty road. Found some springs in a valley where we are camped, and shall stay til! to-morrow morning. Had some potatoes to-day, which wa bought at a trading post at $4 per bushel, and butter $1,50 per lb. In dians visited our camp and as usual begged for something to eat. July 4th. This is the 77th anniversary of our National Independence; and while our friends at home, have been enjoying a quiet and peaceful Sabbath, we have been wend ing our way through the deep ravines, and mi nuns (prominnced kny) !' the Rocky Mihiiii in-, far frun tin- fitiinl ot the "church gomjc liell!" The day iiat. l,evti very unpleas ant, and we have suffered with the cold in the afternoon it rained a little enough I hope to lay the dust, which has been disagreeble in the extreme. Have come fifteen miles to day passed one good spring, and a little stream where we stopped for dinner crossed a branch of Raft river, and camped on it for the night Rode on horseback this afternoon, and while waiting for the train, picked a milk pan full of currants, of which I have made some delicious pie. We had a nice dish of orsters for supper, which John Silsbee bro't from Cincinnati. July 5th. Water froze last night, and this morning is cold and cheerless. Charles caught a beautiful bird to day, much resembling the celebrated English magpie. After keeping it n llitle while, to admire the delicate purity of its snowy breast, and the. rich green of its gl etsy wings, 1 released It, that its tranquil hie mihiiii IIjvv op, in the sylvan shades, and by the clear springs of its native mountains. What were ray feelings an hour afterward, when one of our com puny presented it to me, all lifeless and culd! 1 cannot but wonder. how an person, can wantonly take the tile of so innocent, and beautiful creature! Cross ed a branch of K tl river about 9 a. m , nnd the mum river alter dinner, winch was bad to cross, having very steep banks camped for the remainder of the day and night imme diately after, with nothing to burn but grouse wood, which makes a miserable fire. July 6th. Crossed three tributaries to Raft river within a mile after starting, soon after we left tbe opeo plain, our road leadiog between high mountain here it began to grow cold, and lo rain while we were at din ner hare come fourteen miles this forenoon. Charles and several others are fishing in a stream near by, which we have crossed twice to-day. I can hardly realize that it is harv est lime at home, for tbe day is like the fall of the year, cold, rainy and dismal 1 A large blazing fire, such as Father knows so veil how to make, would be th most comfortable thing I can think of it rains so hard we shall stay here till morning. July 7 th. Last night considerable snow fell on the mountains near by, but the sun is shining now, and gives promise of a pleas ant day. Passed Pyramid rocks this after noon have had excellent roads aod running streams every few miles are now camped on a little stream, a few miles beyond where the road from Salt Lake comes into this the wind blows cold I more like the middle of Oct than July ! Thin clothing has been of but little use to us thus far on our journey the nights being always cool, hare slept in flannel sheets all the way. July 8th. Rode on bore-back over the mountains passed Black Alder Creek this afternoon and camped on Goose Creek dry willows to burn, and plenty of the finest gooseberries and currents and have had fine roads all day.

One cold, raw November night ia tbe year is , me wina oiew as tnougn it would blow down old Fauneil Hall St the rain fell in such torrent that Bunker Hill wa nearly washed away. The sky was as black as all round my hat!" and the air wa compounded of that delightful mixture of frost and moisture, in which there is enough of ihe latter to open the pores, while the former goes directly to the heart In the midst of this rambling of me elements, a tali ngure might De seen win ding steadily along through narrow streets and lonely alleys, shod with a pair of fisher man' boot, and enveloped in a huge pea- jacket, for indeed rubber and Mackintoshes were unkoow in those days, until it halted under ths window of a lone cottage, at some distance from the town, and, the family bar ing been some time in bed, knocked violently at the door. At first his rude summon was unanswered : but after repeated thumps, a bed room window was thrown up, and a voice demanded who was there? "Pray, sir," said Mackar. for it was he. ''will you be kind enough to tell me if a per son named Nutt lives in this neighborhood !" To be sure he does," replied the voice from the window ; "he live here." -I am glad of that!" laid AL "for the night ia very stormy, and I have something of great importance to communicate to him." Uf great importance, did yon say 7 1 know of nothing very important that can concern me at this hour of the nigbt; but whatever it is, let us hear it I am tbe person you want." "Speak little louder, if you please, ' said M. "I am somewhat desf, and the spout makes such a noise. Did you say your name was Nutt I" Certainly I did ; I wish you would make haste to communicate whatever you have to say, for I have nothing on but . my shirt 4r nightcap, and the winds is whistling through me, nation cold." Have you got an uncle in Boston child' less and very old worth ten thousand do! lars?" At thi question a long-pointed white nightcap was thurst oat of window ; and in an instant, together with the shirt-collar that followed, it was saturated with rain. "What did vou say about an uncle, and len thousand dollars I There is my uncle Wheeler is very old, and very rich ; but what about him?" ;Ob ! nothing at yet, till I am certain of my man. 1 here may be a great many jN utts here. It is John Nutt I want" "I am the man 1" said tbe voice in the night-cap. "There i no mistake. There is not a msn for 20 miles round with the name of Nutt but me: and besides my christian name is John ; and 1 have an uncle in Boston, By this time the whole back and sleeve of the shirt were out of the window, tbe tassel at the end of the white night-cap nearly touched the green palings in front of the bouse; and, had there been light enough to have seen, a painter might have caught an attitude of straining anxiety, and a face, or rather two faces, for by this time there was a female peering over Null's shoulder, beaming with the anticipation of good fortune to come. "Well," said Mackay, very deliberately. "I suppose I may venture to speak out; but mind, if there is any mistake, you cannot say, it was my fault" "No, certainly notl" cried two voices from the window. "You say your name is John Nutt, do you ?" "I do." "Well, then, all that I hare to say is, may the Devil crack you!" The two beads were drawn in like light ning from the rain; and, as the window was slamed down with a violence that bespoke rage and disappointment a loud horse-laugh rose uiion tbe wind, and tbe lover of practical jokes turned on his heels to trudge home ward through the mist as Ihe good woman inside was going in search of the tinder-box to enable her to hunt dry chemises,shirts and night-caps. This story was many years afterwards dene into verse, after the manner ot loieman the Younger, by a clever student of Harvard University, but all that I remember of the poetry, are the two concluding lines "Aiiii if your ninie certainly John Nutt, Whj, then the davel crack you!" , Niagara Falls Excelled. A correspondent of the Oregon Columbian, given the following glowing account of the falls on the Skawamish Biver. a branch of the Siiioniisii, whleh flows into Puget's Sound. He says: Again on another visit of exploration, your correspondent visited the Sinomish River attracted by tbe report of coal being in the vicinity, tie found this river more free from drift and rapids than any other of the streams of Puget's Sound For fourteen miles the navigation is open, clear and placid with an average depth of ten feet. Arriving at the forks, the river assumes two names: that northward and eastward is called by the In dians the Skawamish the other is now re cognised by the whites as the Sinomish it self. Finding the indications of coal rather doubtful, yonr correspondent, accompanied by Col. Edward Warbass, was persuaded to go up the river, carried away by the enconi ums of the Indinna, who spoke enthusiastical ly of a lofty precipice over which tbe stream tumbled. Thirty hours of alternate rowing, paddling and polling, brought our party to tbe foot of the most magnificent sight whioh has ever blessed the eyes of an Oregonian. The whole river is compressed to th limits of sixty-fire feet, and within that width, with a volume of fifty -fire thousand cubic feet per minute, it has a perpendicular descent of two hundred and ninety-three feet Your cor respondent above, looked down with wonder unon bis friend Warbass below, and was vidvidly reminded of the seen in "Lear." And dizzv 'ti to east ene'e eve so lew. The crows and chough that wing the midway air, Show searce so gross as betles; halfway down Uanga one that gathers samphire, dreadful trade!

A sweet morning in Autumn, when the air breathed through the fragrant sheve of grain, and the sun with us golden kisses burnished the rich clusters of purple grapes. There was unusual joy in that old mansion, hidden away amid the unshorn tree of God's aweet country. Within its antique patlor a nuptial ' group had assembled, and the blooming daughter of an hcmorable house was given up to bim who had won ber heart just at the budding of her now consumate beauty. It is a hallowed hour. . Stand back, rain thoughts, empty world, cynical and unfeeling hearts there is no room for you in a scene like this. This is the place for honest feeling, and pure tears, for earnest wishes snd tremu lous prayera. - Heaven break its choicest blessings upon tbe bead of the beautiful pair as did the'wornan at the fast break tbe ala baster boxof precicus ointment upon the head of the Man-God. a ' "And the twain shall be one fleshy Nothing shall part them now. Nothing? Nay save death. A short week has passed. A funeral train threads its way solemnly, quietly, over the road that so lately rejoiced iu the passage of wedding cortege. The bride i there her wedding garments are upon her tbe orange blossoms are not yet withered but the features are so still so cold alas! the mighty hath been there. In a moment in the midst of her raptures she passed away to Heaven, as one bloweth out a taper. This is no fancy sketch. Friendship here leaves a record, which painfnl fact suggested. The tomb never closed upon a sweeter tenant Heaven never opened to a brighter guest There is one who will go about mourning all his days to whom may Infinite Lore be gentle. How stange are the problems of life. Who can fathom their mysteries or reveal their issues 7 Paradoxical hit at the Times. The following amusing satire we copy from tbe New York Times: "It is one of tbe worst annoyance of pov erty that it debars a man fiom many privile ges, which, at first glance, seems to be his exclusively. A rich man can afford to dress more shabbily than a poor one. A wealthy merchant can afforn to wear a shabby coat. but his clerk, on three hundred a year, must wear one of the latest style and having the exactesl fit. A man owning a block of city houses can afford to rent the story of one cheaper than any one of his own, for his fami ly residence; but bis penniless neighbor must take a whole house, have his ' name on the door-plate, and nobody else's sign on the front or give up his hopes of getting into business. A banker's wife can afford to re ceive calls in a six-penny calico dress; but the lady of our friend, whose only earthly means are his salary of a thousand per an num, mast never be seen in her parlor but in silk, or something equally costly. An heiress goes into the country with a three-shilling bonnet and looks so "neat and lovely." with out a grain of jewelry about her; while the journcman milliner must wear her four dol lar bonnet and be loaded with gollen orna ments, all to come out of her three dollars wages per week. A rich man may amuse himself of a morning playing the Croton up on his sidewalk and the plants in his yard. If we, in our mediocuty, if not in our poverty. do it, we must rise with the sun. and be through with the refreshing exercise before our neighbor looks out of his front door, Or we aredegraded to the level of a "man-servant" Your millionarie can refuse to subscribe to a benevolent effort; we are mean if we de cline. If he gives of his income a fraction whose numerator is a unit, and its denomi nator a sum larger is . applauded. When we give to the amount of the hundredth part of our salary, we are ashamed. A doctor of divinity can afford to wear a "shocking bad hat;" the young licentiate must always sport a new one, and one not bought in the Bow ery either. A wealthy physioian can afford to make bis calls on foot, aa Dr. John Mason Good always Hid when his practice amounted to more than $10,000 per annum, or avail himself of an omnibus when it wa on his route. The young and unknown physioian, who feels that he is as rich as CreOMus in the remote prospects of $1,400, must make his calls in a gig. or cease to attena tne pat ron out of whom be confidently expects to get one quarter of that very respectable amount of money. A lawyer io geod prac tice can afford to walk leisurely acroo tbe Park. A yonng and briefless limb Of the law must always carry package tied with red tape, always long heated, perplexed and over run with busines. "And a wealth of reputation is sometimes no less serviceable than money. Uensral Cass, when he addressed 'the unterrified' at Tammany, could afford to throw off hi coat, stock and rest Your unknown orator, who nerer was a defeated candidate for anything higher than Inspecter-of Elections, must buy a new coat for such n occasion, and spend an extra half hour at the ' barber's before venturing hi speech.
