The Ixoltements of the Chase oa th. "Great American Desert." Correspoadeao Lawrenoe (Kansas) Jwnrnal. At 10 o'clock in the mornmR our lone train, loaded with three hundred eager excursionists, moved out of tb. Law rence depot at the sound of tuusio by the band, and steamed away westward to ward the regions of Le and the buffalo. Oar commissary car is loaded to the muz zle with good things for tha inner man. The day is auspicious the hunters eager fur the fray. A goodly number of ladies are present, who, despite the rumors of Indian massacres, that appul the hearts of timid down-easters, are t.ound for the " dark and bloody ground, to become tha enthusiastic spectators of deeds that shall eclips. the days of chivalry. At the 225th mtlt-Dost we brat hove in sight of the grand army advancing from the north, and for fifty miles we have not been out of sight of their dark threaten ing lines. No estimate can be made of the countless thousands of there shaggy mon sters who have hung upon our right flank, checked in their southern march by tha railroad and passing trains. Experienced froctier men affirm that they have never before seen sncb countless numbers to gether. A few of the advance guard had, at some points, crossed to the southward of the road, and these, as our goodly en nine the Seminole advanced, would " , -ti, m i seek to recross to tse mai n oera. aobq would ensue such a wild race as no words can describe. Such a neck-and-neck race as we had at aboat three p.m. A mile away on our left about twenty were descried making a curve in the road about two miles in advance of tb. engine. Keeping his engine at a speed jnst suffi cient to encourage them in their effort, the skillful engineer of the Seminole threw down the gauntlet and th. race began. In an iaatant hundr.d car windows were thrown op, and the left of our train bristled with two hundred guns. The engine screamed and the spectators shouted, and the earth seemed to tremble with the tread of th. huge monsters, as half enveloped in a clond of dust they bounded over the level plain searing us at every bound, and now at tha distance of six hundred yards, and just abreast of our train they received the desultory fire of our eager marksmen. And thus for more than two miles, these great dark, rolliug, wallowing, swaying monsters, ran th. fiery gauntlet till, apparently dis heartened, they slackened their speed, turned defiantly at bay for a mementand then sped away to tb. left out of rang, of our guns, with a gait which told too well that some of our shots had taken effect. But the grand adventure of the day was yet to come. Just at dark we ran into a vast herd spread out on both sides of the track. Io an instant tb. whole prairie seemed in motion. Again the portion on our left aonghtto cross the track, and again we gave chase. The mass were too quick for os, but three im mense bulls war. cut eff in such a way as to giv. them an even chance with tb. Seminole. Ia the darkness of th. even ing they could scarcely be discerned, except by the flash of the guns, as a little in advance of th. cngin. and close along th. track, they drew the diagonal fir. of two hundred guns. It was a race lor life, and they ran as if the demon of despair was in ihem. By this time the Seminole was wore ed ; and with a lurch and a bonnd the sprang across the track twenty feet i. advance of the engine. But not to scape. Is a flash oor runners were on tie opposit. aid. of th. train, and as their bugs backs earn, rolling ap tb. embankment they received a fall broadeid. from ear battalion. Two war. eeeo ta stagger and fall, bujroee agaia to tb.ir feet "Down brakes" was whistled, and ntea, worn, and children tumbled from lbs train and joined ia the pursuit.

Your correspondent, in th. excitement of getting out, tumbled over his wife and the drum, but was on tb. ground in a trice. ... Captain Curtiss, . practical butcher, was on hand in a jiffie, and to disem bowel his majesty was th. work of but a few moments. Under tb. direction of Captain Coombs a rope was attached to his horns, and two long files of men, with joined hands and preceded by the band playing " Yankee Doodle," dragged him bodily to the front car and hoisted him aboard. W. have christened him Maximilian. Captain Coombs is putting him through a course of embalming, and when we reach bom. we propose to mount him on a drey, and carry bim in triumphal procession through the streets of the " historic city." " Few and short were the prayers we said " laBt night, and brief the embraces of Morpheus. Long black lines of buffa loes were galloping all night over the level plain of our dreamland. Montgom ery's howitzer is said to have been dis charged one. during the night. Judge Banks was detected in a frantic en deavorto fir. offtbe brass drum. There were several alarms of " fire " during the niht- . , ,1,1 At sunns, we steam away for the buffalo mirage. Thirty miles at light ning speed, and we were in sight of their a'dvance lines.

Tbe captains gave a few brief instruc tions to their men, and then embarked aboard the train and dashed in among (hem, scattering them to the right and left of th. track. Those on our right flank endeavoring to cut ns off, we gave chase. A broadside was delivered in their midst, and on. felL A hundred hands conveyed him bodily to tbe cars and hoisted him aboard, when h was provided with a berth by " Max All aboard! Another charge and we ren the midst of thousands, darkening all the plain. From the op of the train, with a powerful glass, I swept th. horizon through 180 degrees, and the whele half circle was literally covered with their dark masses, looking in the distance like a clumped forest of blackjack oaks. The train halts, and noiselessly the different platoons dart out on the double-quick among the dark masses availing them elves of the inequalities of the ground to keep themselves covered, and seeking the most thickly covered herds. From our elevated look out wa could take in the entire field. To a looker-on the scene had all the interest of a battle. The plan was well conceived and faithfully exe cuted. There was a suspense of twenty minutes preceding the conflict Then came a shot, then two, then a pattering of shots all around the circle, and the ball was opened. There was confusion doubly confused among the countless herd. Confounded and bewildered, they darted this way and that, and among each other, like th. fantastic, ever changing kaleidoscope. Whenever they tried to break from the fiery column, it was only to meet the deadly rifle and its death-dealing missile. The tnmult over, and fifteen carcasses are stretched upon tb. plain.

Bogus Greenbacks. From the 8t Louis Republican, 9tb.l The extent to which counterfeit money is being palmed off on tbe public for genuine is becoming really startling. More so because the operators seem to ac quire greater skill, and the bogns green backs canaequently approaoh a greater similitude to the real. It requires the constant exercise of a keen watchfulness and a dogged perseverance by police and detectives to break np unlawful combi nations formed for tbe purpose of this kind of fraud. An illustration of tb. largeness of the dealings of soma persons in counterfeit money has just been given. From information that Chief of Police Lee derived, Sergt Harrigan was in structed to devote his attention, for the nonce, to tb. movements of a Mrs. Catherine Engels,who resided in a neatly furnished two-story brick, oa South Sev enth street, near lb. araenal. Sergt. H. went to work like a man who understands his business, and on Wednesday last sent a person to this place to get samples of the "queer" from Mrs. Eogels. Mrs. E told him to call next day, as ws are informed, and said she would Uen fur nish him with samples. Sh. was as sured that if th. " queer " was very good a large amount of is wonld be tak.a , that tb. purchaser was going dowa South, and could dispose of it readily. This is what fanepirwd on Wednesday. Oa Thursday the same persoa called, in obedience to the invitation extended, and he was rewarded for his trouble by getting a specimen $50 eoanterfeit bill, 15 ditto and a five cent piece nf tb. same character. For this h. paid lit 60. He went hack th. sam. day, aad, professing to be satisfied with the imitations, .aid h would take 15000 worth of tb. "etuff. He was tolo to com. dowa oa Friday night aad that it would thea b. thar. for hies. Friday aight earn, and with it oor idefatigO'" fnend, officer Tracy and Serieaailamgaa. Th. two latter stared outside, ex peeling by secret obatr- sLAUQEHT CITY CIKCCHTIOV. LADIES' SACKS, T MERCHANT VESTINQ9. ETC., WHICH HE WILL vation to ba able to fasten guilt on Mrs. E. The other person went inside and had a brief interview with th. woman. She bad not th. "queer," and another delay was the result. Mrs. E. requested tbe man to meet hsr at Uoioo Market at nine o'clock on Saturday morning. He agreed to be there, aad in th. morning filled the appointment punctually. Mrs. E. was there too. Tbe purchaser said he was going to the bank to draw the money to pay for tbe bogus, and she said she would go to get tbe latter. As far as tbe "purchaser was concerned, the matter was ended, but not so for Mrs E. She made ber way to the house of Michael Moran, at the corner of Eighth and Bid die streets, followed by officer Tracy. Sbe was seen to enter this house and eome out again, Moran coming after her. Bath went down Fifth street, and when on Fifth and Chestnut, officer Tracy intro duced himself to Moran. Mrs. E. was allowed to proceed as far as Eighth and Market streets, when Sergeant Harrigan introduced himself to her. She was fairly taken by surprise and overcome with terror. In the hop. of getting out of trouble by ridding herself of tbe highly inconvenient " qnser," she threw it wildly about, and plead for release. Sergeant U. was, however, inexorable, and she was forthwith placed in confinement She had the consolation, such consolation as it was, of not being alone in trouble. Both parties will be brought before a Uoitsd States Commissioner to-day, and a preliminary examination had in the case. The amount of counterfeit money found in the possession of Mrs. E was between $200 and $300, which consisted principals of $5 bills, the remainder of it was in $5Q bills, fifty-sent and twenty, five cent notes, and five-cent pieces. Tbe $5 were remarkably good imita tions of the real, and would be readily received by many persons. In fact, they are the beat imitations that ex perienced detectives here have seen. The five-cent pieces were tolerably good imitations. Mrs. Eogels stated that sbe got the "stuff" at the Morana'. Tb. house was searched soon afterward by Sergeant H , and $50 of the counterfeit money, various denominations, was seized. Sbe has been pursuing the avo cation, it is said.iof a " fortune teller." Moran keeps a saloon at the corner of Eighth and Biddl. streets, and his resi dence adjoins it. It is into the latter that Mrs. E. was observed to enter. The case, if these developments are sustained, will b. a vary interesting one. The Ascent of Moant Baker, Washington Territory. Tha Tanonover Colonist. September 6, gives an account of tbe ascent of Mount Baker Dy a party neaaeu ,oy Messrs. Otfilvy and Coleman. The party left Whatcom on th. 8th of August, traveled ap th. Lumini and Nootsa. rivers, by canoe, .ighty miles; then twenty miles through a desperate coun try to what may be called tbe foot of tbe mountain. At the snow line, where veg etation ceases, the Indians camped, al lowing tbe explorers to reach tb. summit themselves, which they did the same day, and returned to camp in the evening. The distance traveled, which was about six miles, is said to have been most fa tiguing, though not as perilous as was expected. Being obliged to return to the camp th. same evening, th. ex plorers had only about an hour oa the ..imfnit ihia short neriod ther seem to have used diligently. The existence of a volcano is established beyond a aouot, the crater being about three hundred feet wide, and at leant six hundred feet deep, from which puff of sulphurous vapor are being emitted. The crater lies between two high peaks of tbe mountain, where tbe summit forms a plateau quite bare and free from snow, which is a quarter of a mile wide and half a mile long. The eastern peak, called after General Sherman, is the highest of the two. Tbe time spent oa the summit was devoted to examining the crater, and planting tbe American flags, with so much of the usual honors as tbey were able t. give. Th. mountain, as most persons, no donbt, ar. aware, is a few miles south of tbe boundary line, the 49. h par allel. The most arduous part of the as cent was at tbe last pitch, where the par ty had to cut 400 steps in the ice in order to reach tbe top. Tb. Indians would not go any higher than the line of vege tation; but they received the party on re turning from the summit with marked demonstrations of welcome and joy, ev idently recognizing tbe dangers and hard ships of this part of the trip, and the courage and skill the explorers had shown in overcoming them so speedily. No signs of gam. were seen an th. moun tain, except th. bug. foot-prints of a bear, which th. natives said was an old grizs'y- It was well oor friends did not ens in collision with bis bearship. Mr. Coleman will return by the Eliza Ander son from Port Townseod next week, when, doubtless, we shall have additional details of the expeditioa and its scien tific result. Mr. Colemao, we believe, bas tbe honor of making the first sue eesaful ascent of this mountain, which be aad his party failed to accomplish on a former occasion, by reason of the Ia ians accompanying as guide, and packers refusing to proceed further thaa a certain distance into tbe interior.

What do w. really know of history T Can w. depend on anything that is re lated of past times? Is it all a myth and set of falsehoods, and does the truth lie in totally different directions to those which we have generally supposed? One begins to suspeet as much in ths face of tbe continual revolutions wbicb sceptical inquirers are making in tbe traditions of oor youth. Some centuries ago, a king of France called his history a liar; yet tbe silting process had not gone very far in those days. Io recent times, the German his'orians, and our Eoglish iovestigator, Sir George Corns wall Lewis, have made mincemeat of the early Roman annals, and other writers have subjected tbe records of other coon. tries to a similar process. Doubts, dim cullies and questions spring up on every side. Did tbe Greeks perform such mir acles of courage and heroism at the pass of Thermopy sB as w. have always been told 7 Were Uomuius and Bemus any thing like what is reported in the old bis lories? Is the story of the Horatii aad Curiam true, or only a fabler Ui tur tins leap into the gulf, or was there any gulf for him to leap into? Did Mutius Scavola burn his right hand? Was ths heroio death of Regulus a figment? Was Nero really a tyrant, or a much-misrepresented ruler? Did he wantonly burn Rome, or wisely rebuild it? Are tbe accounts of tb. Sicilian Vespers so greatly exaggerated as to be substantially falser Was Joan of Are a saint or an impostor? Was there any such peraon as rope Joan 7 Did celliaartus beg an obolom in the streets of Constantinople? Was the Alexandrian library destroyed by tbe Caliph Omar? Did William Tell have that little adventure with Gesler, which w. all love to see represented on the stage in Rossini's opera and Sheridan Enowles' play? Is it al! a falsehood that we are told concerning Hengist and Horsa, Rowena and Vortigero? Did Alfred burn tbe cakes or go disguised into the Danish camp? Was William Rufus killed by an arrow in the New Forest 7 Was crooked-backed Richard at all like what some histoiians bava affirmed ? Was Cromwell's dead body hung at Tyburn ? And was it after wards buried ignomioiously on lb. site of Red Lion square? Ants as Human Food. These creatures are relished as food by the natives of India, as well as by those of Africa. In India, before tbe mi era tion of the aats, two holes are bored in the nest opposite to each other ; on the leeward side a pot is placed which bas been rubbed with aromatic herbs; on the windward side a fire is made, the smoke of which drives the insects into tb s pot These cptive victims are then securely fastened in, dried over the fire, and ground into flour, and then made into pastry, which is sold to poor people, but which, if used abundantly, produces dy sentery. At tha time of the migration of the ants into Atrtca, myriads ot tnem tall into the water, which the natives skim off tha surfac. with calabashes, then grill them in iron cauldrons over a large fire, stirring them as cottee is stirred. The natives eat tbem by tbe handful, without accompaniment or other pre paration, and consider them delicious. They are said to resemble in taste su gared cream ana sweet aimona paste. The Hottentots eat them greedily, when boiled, and grow plump and fat upon the food, Toey also consume the papas of tbe ants, which tbey call rice, on ac count of its resemblance to that grain. Tbey cook these in a small quantity of water. A large neat win sometimes yield a bushel of pat. Dr. Livingstone, whea on tbe banks of the Tanga, in South Africa, being viailed by one of the chiefs, gave nim sum. bread and apricot jam, and presently asked him if he had ever before eaten food so good. " Did yon ever eat white ants 7" be questioned. "No," said the Doctor. "Well, then," Palarie answered, "if you had, you would never have desired to eat anything better." The white ant is a common article of food among the low caste Hindoo tribes in Mysore and other dis tricts of India. Tbe female termite, in particular, is supposed by the Hindoos to be endowed with highly nutritive properties- Mr. Conaett, in his travels in Sweden, in 1799, states tbat he knew a yonng Swede who ate live ants with tbe greatest possible relish; and in some parts of Sweden ants are distilled with tbe rye, to give flavor to inferior kinds of brandy. A Hunted Murderer. Gilbert, the mnrderer, who recently escaped from tb. Wethertfield, Connecti cut, Stat. Prison, remained for several days within fir. miles of that institution, yet eluded scores of men who were in pursuit of him. Being an old hunter and knowing perfectly th. Kensington woods where be bad concealed himself, be bas had a great advantage over bis pursuers. On Wednesday be acpoaed five men between New Britain and Plain ville, pretending to be ia search of Gil bert (himsell); bnt on. of the party recognized bim, and be wonld have been captured but for tbe exhibition of a long dirk, which so intimidated tb. men that tbey sff-rd him to go back to lb. moun tains, Hj tbea wor. his prison dress, but oa Friday night got a new suit by threatening to marder a fami'y if they refused to giv. it to bim. His friends are helping him, and it is er pec ted that be will soon attempt to leav. the Stat. The reward for his recapture has been, in craased to $1500. , . . .. .,,,, V 0 Fineen CVn Ver V-ek. 1SG8. NO. G5. a. II. WILLIAMSON. V, WILLIAMSON, HILL & CO..
