With all the. people gathered at his fset.
Wailing in Sinai's valley, thore to meet
The awful bearer of Jehovah's will,
So, Grant, thou stand'st amidst the trumpet's

And the w ild, fiery storms that flash and, beat
In iron thunder nnd in leaden sleet,
Topmost of all, and most exposed to ill.
O, stuod thou firm, grcnt leailcr of our race,
Hope of onr future, till the times grow bland,
And into ashes drops War's dying brand;
Then let us see thee, with beuignant grsce,
Descend thy hight, God's glory In thy face,"
And ilia Lord's tables safe within thy hand!

The Mirabolant Sand of America—Fire
Springs Valley and Pass of Hell—The
Veiled Infernal Regions.
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

ful in tho rosy light, whilo yonder distant

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. Though there
are no deep craters in their summits, it is
an easy matter to detect a gentle Dol
low in each, more or less deep, covered
with crumbling particles ol lava-like rock,
The base and sides are , also thiokly strewn
with the like porous dopoaits- some vf vei y
large sizo, like enormous ciudcry cakes,
the . refuse ol a foundry lurnace. A sul
phurous odor is iti tho atmosplioro, remind
indiug one of our companions of bis expo
rience of a choke-damp. !
Surrounding tho entiro plain ftro lofty
calciferoiia rocks, eroded and skolotonizod
by notion 'of rains or shilling bodies cf
water, which now bear the appearance of
inverted pyramids, ; prisms, and -various
configurations. - Besides preparing iit7i4,
which lay piled in heaps at tho foot: of the
cliffs, frequent toirints had so corroded
and dismantled tho rocks, that one . wquld
imagines . destructive fire had raged and
burnt up a city .by the quantity of fallen
columns which lay scattered around in the
most indescribable uoufueion. In the in
terstices . f . the debris , there : bubbled
numerous salino springs, and continuing
our - examination further., wo discovered
hot-wator springs, from whanoo vapory
columns continually ascended. ' On testing
the warmth of the water with Fahrenheit's
thermometer, tho merctlry, which stood
previously at eighty degrees,' shot up to
ono hundred and eighty degrees.. .
Tho tread of . our horses', feet sounded
hollow, while the noiee seemed to reverber
ate along the earth like an echo. Net a
blade oi grass .was to bo scon, ox'coptiig
along the margiu.of ihe tiny streams. :Tho
whole aspect of 4he plain, wss arid in the
extreme, uhastly reitcs ot annual tire liter
ally covered the ground ' along the stream.
This, was evidently caused by. the -gathering
of the biiQ'.iloes in tho full to crons tho
Sweet Grass, where- they luxuriated for n
season, protected, by tho iing bills from
the bleak winds, which,, with the, fqree of
simoons, sweep evor the northern ptairies,
until the severity of the season and 1 he
scarcity of grass ' warned them to,, leove,
when they found their egress prevented
by the deep snows in the pusses, md they
must have perished from hunger and eohh
leaving their bnnos to, be picked by hun
gry wolves, snd to be bleached in the sun
aud rain. t.. , ..
- No language can give any idea of the
fearful desolation rtf this wondertul valley.
It struck our hearts with a nameless dread.
Not a wolf infested the chambered cavities
of the clitls j . not a buzitard , hovered over
the vicinity.. All was silent in this Valley
of Death. One of the party of explorers
bestowed upon it tho significant appellation
of "Ilell.V ; ' '"'." . . ' ,.,., . , '..
It is a rich' field, however, for , tho geo
logical tatant, and though famous travelers
love to describe the' splendors of Alpine
scenery, dwell upon the classic; lji(;li8 of
Olytnpus) dilute upon .Lebanon," Mourit of

world ol, ,0ur"rrv"il .valleys, far. , more
idyliie than any old Europe can limsl. and
rivers vf greater depth and larger volume.
travelers have descanted long enough up
on the stale end melancholy inanities of
ihe ,X)rjent.. Let hjm that.,' suffers with
ennut, and. the oui . tliat Hankers alter

regions ot the Uppor Jellowstone,' and

fertility, and Valleys clothed with Kdeu

olain teeming with diabolism, from which
yon cannot emerge save through the "Pass
of Hell,"" ' ' ' ' 11 " '" ;' !
Through eflch. i' pass did we grope onr

Uie lonely defile. Why . this wild, gloomy
ravine, flanked by lofty perpendicular walls,

There are many ollicere to whom I ho so re

Gen. Siikiisan received this lotter near

ately replied: ,. ,
DMar Gksrrai. i I have your more than
kind and charactcriatio letter of the 4th
inst. 1 will send a copy to General Mo
Pherson at once.
Yon do yourself injustice, and ns too
mnch honor, in assigning too large a share
of the merits which have led to your high
advancement. I know you approve the
friendship I havo over professed to yon,
and will permit me to continue, as hereto
fore, to manliest it on nil proper occasions.
. l'uu ore now )'isliiii(ilon's legitimate
mccessor, and occupy a position ol almost
dangerous elevation ; but if yon can con-
tiunorts heretofore, to bo yourself,' simple,
honest hud uniiretendinK. yon will eniny
through life the respect ami love, vf frltnils
and tho homage of millions of human be
ings that will award you a largo share in
securing to them and their descendants a
government of law and stability.
I repeat, you do Gonorul Mcl'herson and
mysolf too mueb honor. At Belmont 'you
manifested your trails, neither ol' ua being
near. At Imnolson, aNo, you illustrated
yonr whole chanwter. 1 was not near, and
(Innoral Mcl'herson in too subordinate u
cutmcitv to influence Vou.
. Until you bad won DonolHon, t confess I
was almost oowud by tho terrible display
of anarchical elements that presented them
selves at every point ; but. that- admitted a
ray of light 1, have followed siuco. I be
hove vou are as bravo, patriotic and just
as the great prototype, Washington as un
selfish, kind hearted and honest as a man
should be, . but the chief cliai actciistio is
Ihe simple luitn in success you Have al
ways manifested, which I oan lken tonoth
ing else than the faith a Christian has in
tbe Saviour. '
This faith gave yon victory at Sliiloh and
Vicksburg. Also, when you have com
pleted your best preparations you go into
battlo without hosilalion, as at Chattanooga
no doubts, no reserves; and I will toll yotl
it was this that madii iih act With confi
dence, llfiicw. wherever I wa$,you thought
of wis, anil if I got a light place, you
would help me out, if idive.
My only point of doubt was in yonr
knowledge of grand strategy, and of books
of, science and lnutory ; but 1 confess, your
wmmoti snuxe. inppncd uu IHefe. . ,.
Now, as to the future. , Don't stay . In
Washington. Come west ; take to your
self the whole Mississippi Yaller. Let ns
inoko it dead sure, and I tell you the At

not seem at all faiuiliur moving in tho deep

cautiously, fearing, as ho Could not distill
