A correspondent of the Cincinnati Com- mrniul, writing from the " HcaJwatore of the Yellow Slone, Montana," givee tho fol lowing dccrription- of the "Valley and Pass or Hell," in that Territory i And liorr, from the spot on which ! stand, with my ooinp.iiiions on this explor ing txpedition, tractng my notes, I drink in the views, so weird, so passing strange. that even in my wildest dreams never aught like this was seen. As daylight was dying on the Yellowstone hills, the sun melting down into ttio verge of tiio I. on ion, shooting his slanting tays far into tho gloom t.f grotesque dill's, and lingering upon the lot tier ;viiks, converting thmr rugged surfaces Into pnrplo and gold, tho islutid'S In the river swell buhl' and beauti ful in tho rosy light, whilo yonder distant cone-like hill stainie sgaiiMt the sky a con spicuous msss fringed with fire, lhe gi eantio moiinlr.ii s to the west cast their shadows far down into the silent valley nt our cot, w hile me silvery 1 1 iniwatone Uows on its whispering way, breaking the sombre aspect of tho plain with tho line of its gleaming water. in tins valley nl mysterious wonders' have been visible from' time Immemorial,' of which tho mo. bilo Saxon never heard. The Indians,, in the vioiuity, lull us it has ulwuya been thus. . ".' Out of this plain, or valley, nil her, which extend over an area of filly miles, issue a million sharp jets of bluish white lliime, interspersed with fitful putli f pearly vapor, which sail upward in end less turbinated convulsions, until reaching a high altitude, they '.dissolvo and become blended wi'h the llucluatiiig cloud winch hangs over the valley, as if to.-shii'ld it from mortal eyes. The plain is dotted with ia .unieiablo humps, from whence these va pory nnd fiery columns are emitted, lu their formation they resemble miniature vol canoes. Fire-springs like these may be found in China ; aud tho geysers of Ico land me but results of voteanio action of the samo nature, though of greater lores aud power, than the hot springs iti the valley of the Yellowstone One cannot help thinking that fiercest fiiea rage some where bolow tho external euvelope of the plain, to thus fan and force flames above the surface. . A sntlumun and a stieu.'if, connected with our party, ascribes these igneous streams to gases escaping . from a "veiled hill." . - ; Anothei speciality of volcanic, action may be observed by a closer investigation of the conical hills which loom up from tho surface in every direction.
