In the neighborhood, and, determined to do the sights ot this part of Holt, we started up the bluff along tha railroad track tor tho purpose of examining the.

Following onr indefatigable guide, wc again mounted the rocky woodland bluff, and toiled onward to the newly discovered quarries, whence Is exca vated the peculiar' Dctrino formation. commonly called rock, and from which a valuable quality ot cement is prepar ed. Having inspected tho quarry and its surroundings, ana tacen a rest on the softest rock we could find in the neighborhood, we got up and again started on our tour of exploration. One remarkable feature or our expedition was that, go. In what direction we might, wc never were more than two and -a half or three miles from Oregon. We at last reached the works. The building is a spacious and lofy frame structure that was erected some six years ago at a cost of about five thou sand uo tiara ior ine purpose oi an ele vator, and was fitted up In good style with powerful engine, etc. But cither for want of necessary means, enter prise, or some other requisite, the Oregon elevator company, as it was styled, failed, and the building remain ed idle till about a year ago, when It was sold at sheriff's sale, and became, with all its fixturcs.tbo property of Mr. Payne, one of tho present parties, in the cement factory. r The machinery includes, with other appliances a run of burrs, and was for sometimes nscd for grinding corn. ine new enterprise inangurateu nere by Meiers, llhodw A Payne, promises to be a complete success, and Is re garded by the skeptical in tho county as a more tanclblo source of remuner ation than the gold mine. Wmi Bas- kins, of Oregon, is general agent lor this cement, and Is now prepared to fill all orders. The kiln is capable of burning rock cnaugh In one day, to furnish fifty barrels of cement, and the mill can be readily made to grind me same amount In twelve honrs. Mr". Rhodes is a practical plasterer, and has been prospecting for the past two years, lor cement rocK. it appears that he has discovered two qualities ot this mineral, both of which be has manufactured. One of them produces a darker colored cement than the other. Their several properties have not yet been fully tested, but tho lighter color ed product is said by competentjodges. lo surpass in quality tnc.M. Louis, anu to be but little inferior to the celebrated Louisville cement. There are seven and a half acres of ground attached to the works. By the time we had done with the cement works the sun was low in the west, and wc began to think of the homeward march; but our unwearied friend of the Sentinel had something else to show, and wc were as anxious to see. Accordingly we started In quest or the wondertui grove or roruixs trhuula, on quaking aspex. said to be the only sight of the kind in the State, or, indeed, west of the Mis sissippi river. This grove is situated about a mile and a half southeast ot Oregon, on tho land of James L. Allen Tbe crave, which Is a spontaneous growth, covers an area of about ten acres, and is truly a singular and beautiful sight. The trees which ap dear to be of uniform shape, perhaps from the dense character of the growth in this spot, suggest the Idea ot a gi gantic cane-brake.

The aspen is a graceful tree when growing in solitary contrast" to more familiar' timber, but viewed in a dense mass, like this grove, it is as strikingly beautiful as it is novel.

The Superior Court, Criminal Term for Fairfield Co. Conn., Judge Lafayette S. Foster, prsidlng, has just sentenced to twenty years in tbe State Prison a man named John Lee Powell, who was caught, July .16, la tae act of plac ing obstructions on the track of tho Ilousatonlc Railroad. The New York, New. naven and 'Hartford and-otber railways in the State have frequently been pestered or late py persons wuo sought deliberately to throw trains from their tracks by the use of Ues. stones and rails; but, though rewards were offered and efforts made through detectives to discover the guHty par tics, there has been no satisfactory re sult until tbe present case. The circumstances of the case are as follows : On the evening of Friday. July 16, John Leo Powell, a resident of the town oi rrumDuu, iook ine nou- satonic train from this city for Beers Mills station, near Tarlor Rock. The train was heavily loaded. On the way to tho station Powell refused to pay his fare, which led to a sharp controversy. between bimselt and conductor Lane, who passed through the train nine times before he succeeded in getting the sum due from Powell for his ride, Powell persisted in paying a few cents at a time only, as il to annoy the con ductor. Hard words were spoken dur ing the interviews, Powell was told that if he did notpay ho would be put off the train. This excited Powell, who reached the station boiling over with rage. As be stepped from the car platform. Powell asked Lane If he would be likely to return to Bridgeport in cnargo oi a train inac nigni. imhu made no reply, but Powell presuming that Lane would return and that he might satisfy his taste for revenge waited till near nightfall, when pro ceeding some distance above the depot he seized an Iron rail and placed It on the track. Further on he lifted a wooden tie upon the track in such a manner that the train must strike it Near this tie he rolled on a heavy stone and at about five hundred rods from the depot, at a. turn In the railway, he plada pile If tics, bracing them In sucrrltaaanncnthat a train coming in contactwist bl thrown off.

Marsh, and alter long pursuit caugol and arrested the offender, and lodged him safely in tan. Powell, by advice of his counsel, pleaded guilty. The court, however. fixed the term at twenty years, and tho prisoner who is now thirty-five years old. will to-morrow eater upon his long period ot prison life at Weather- neid. . His First Smoke. A boy tried his firstplpethe other day. Whenhisfather came homo to dinner, be found him braced against a barrel, with his legs spread apart, hls.hands and lower jaw drooping listlessly, and a deathly pal lor overspreading his face. "What Is the matter with you?" Inquired the amazed parent. "My teacher Is is sick," gasped the boy. "wen, you mustn't feel so badly about it. Tommy," said the father, kindly. "She will get well again, without a doubt." And then, stepping into the house, he ob served to his wife that that was tho most sympathetic boy be ever saw. A PAWNBROKtNQ INCI DENT, From Chambers' Journal. As a pawnbroker In a populous sub urb' of London, I have had occasion to se painful, and sometimes not unplcas lng phases of society. Just to give an idea of what occasionally comes under tho notice ot persons in my profession, I shall describe a little incident and its consequences. One evening l stepped to the door lor a little iresn air und to look about for a moment. While I was gazing up and down the road I saw a tidily dressed yonng person step up to our side door. She walked like a lady and let mo tell you that In nine cases out of ten it's the walk, and not the dress, which distinguishes tho lady from tho servant girl and first she looked about, and thcu she seemed to make up her mind In a flurried sort of way, and in a moment more was stand ing at our counter, holding out a glit tering something in a little trembling band covered witn n worn kiu giove. My assistant, Isaacs, was stepping forward to take the seal, when I came in and interposed. The poor young thing was so nervous and shy, and al together so uuused to this work, that I felt for her as if she had been my own daughter almost. She couldn't have been abovo eighteen years old too frail and gentle a creature. "If you please, will you tell me," she said timidly, in a very sweet, low voice, trembling with nervousness, "what is tho value of this seal ?" "Well, miss." I said, taking the seal into my hand and looking at It it was an old-fashioned seal, such as country gentlemen used to wear, wlthacoat-of-arms cut upon it "that depends upon whether you want to pledge It, or sell It outright." 1 am married, sir." and she said the words proudly and with dignify, though sun so any, ana seeming ready to ourst outcrying; 'and my husband is jery 111 and and" And then the tears wouldn't be kept back any longer, and she sobbed, as if .her poor little heart would oreaK. "There, there; my dear," I said to her: "don't cry: It will all come right in time:" and I tried to comfort her as well as I could in my own rough-and-ready way. "I will lend you, ma'am," I said to her at last, "a sovereign upon this seal : and If you wish to sell it. per haps I may be able to sell It for yon to advantage." And so I gave her a pound; it was more than the thing was wortn as a pledge ; anu snc tripped witn a lighter heart, and many thanks to me, and I thought no more of the mat ter at the time. The very next day, the day before Christmas, there came into our place of business a very eccentric gentleman, who had called upon ns pretty often be fore, not for the sake ot pawning any thing, thongh he was generally dressed shabby enough, too. But he was a col lector, one or those men who are mad upon old china and curiosities or an sorts. "Anything In my way. to-day. Mr. Davis P" he said, in hlsjpitck, energetio manner, with a jolly smile upon his face, and putting down the cigarette he was smoking upon the edge ot the counter. The Rev. Mr. Broadman is a collec tor of gems, and rings and seals, and, in fact, of any stones that have heads or figures engraved npom them. And I had been In the habit of putting aside for him whatever In this way passed through our hands; for he gave us a better price than wc should have got for them at the quarterly sales. "The fact is. Davis." he used to say to me. 'these things are Invaluable: many ot them are as beautiful, on n small scale. as tbe old Greek sculptures; and some of them even by the same artists. And they are made no longer, you cce. for, in this busy nineteenth century of ours, time and brains arc too precious to be spent on these laborious trifles." Now, although I had no stones of tho kind he wanted Just then. It entered into my head that I would tell him about tho 6cal which bad corns into my possession the evening before. itold nimtne story soincwnat as have just told it to you. He listened attentively to all I said. When I had done, be loosed at the seal, ana said: "I obscrvo that it has the healdio em blem of a baronet." Ho then congrat ulated me upon the way In which I had acted. He asked, too, for this young lady's address, which she had given me quite correct; and then he left the shop without another word. You must give me leave to tell the rest of tho story in my own way, al though it may be a yery different way from that which the reverend pcrsonago employed In relating it to mo after wards. it seemed that It was a runaway match. A country baronet's son bad fallen in love with tho clergyman's daughter In tbe villago where bis father lived, and they had run away together and got married, men tney came np to London, these two poor young things lor neitner nts lather, nor hers either, for tbe matter of that, would have any thing to say to the match he, fuU ot hopes on getting on in tbe literary and artistic line, and she, poor creature, nniortru8t in him. Tbe project of living by literature did not turn out what was "expected Tho young fellow, without experience or mends, spent much time coin about from ono publisher to another. and sending his writings to tho editors of the various magazines which I need not say were always "returned with thanks." And then he fell ill : typhus. I fancy, brought on by insufficient nourishment, and bad drainage, and disappointed hones. The rerristrar-trcii- eral doesn't give a return of these cases in any list that I am aware of. Bttt wo see something of them in our line of business, nevertheless. It was just at this time that Mr. Broadman found onr Mrs. Vincent; for that was the name ot tho young lady who came to my shop with tho gold seal. Cambridge Terrace is not very far from tno Angel at Islington, and there. in a little back-street of small, respec table houses, Inhabited by junior clerks, with here and there a lodging-bouse, iu one or which Mr. and Mrs. Vincent HV' ed. They were rather sbv at first of t stranger, and a little proud and haugh ty, perhaps. People who have seen better days, and are down upon their iuck, are apt to be so. ilut tue parson, with his pleasant ways and cheery voice, soon mnde It all right; and. in a jiffy, ho and Mr. Vincent were talking about college, for they had both been to tho 6ame university. And there was even soon a smile, too a wan smllo enough upon the poor invalid's sharp in face, with the hollow, far away men looked at you as n out oi a no was me wrecK ox a nne von: fellow, too ; of one who had been ( his hnnting and shooting, and usea all thi fine country sports which make broad-Chested, strong-limbed country peopk the envy of us poor, thin, pale towns ioik. Mrv iiroadman camo direct to mo when ho left him. I did not live tar off, and he thought that I might lend tbem a neighbor's help. "Davis." says ho, ythatpoor fellow is. dying; I can see ueatn in nts eyes." "Ylfaat Is ho dying of?" I replied. lio looKea at me stcadtastly a mo ment, and I could sec a moisture, in his rve. as he said, slowlv and solemnly. "Ot starvation. Davis of actual want jot food." "A gentleman starving In London, in Islington, a baronet's son, too! Why. It's Incredible." "Net- at all," said Mr. Broadman: "these are the yery people who die of starvation in j,onaon, and in an great cities. Not tho poor, who know where the workhouse is, and who can get at tho relieving officer. If the worst comes I linatMf fill fr til nttrAH.Knrn nvlii-h Tinvfn fallen Into destitute poverty, and who cany their prido with them, and dive into a back ally, like some wild animal into a hole, to die alone. Mr. Vincent wants wine ana jeines ana an sorts or good things; if help hasn't come too late. No. no, my friend," fie contin ued, putting back my hand, for I was ready to give my money in a proper cause. "jN0.no; innve leitmcm an they want at present, Davis-.' But I'll tell yon what yon can do"; you can, u you use to piay tne good Samaritan, go anu see them, and cheer them, up a bit. Mrs. Vincent hasn't forgotten your kindness to her, l ean assure you. , And I think her husband would like to" thank' you too, and it would rouse him up a bit, nertinns " And then Mr. Broadman told me, shortly, something' of what these two poor things had gono through she, loving and trusting him so; and he, ball mad that ho had brought her to ttus-pisfl, ana could uo nothing lor her. o Mr. Broadman wrote that very day to the baronet, a proud, bard man. I'm told. But the letter ho wrote back was soft cnongb; and melting to read; it was so lull ot human nature, you see the father's heart swelling up. at the thought of getting back his son ; 'and bursting through the thick crust of pride which had prevented him from making tno nrst advances. Ana ine parson says to me : "Well, Mr. Davis," hn fLtiil. 'there nre manv neonle kent asunder only tor want ot somebody to go between thorn, you sec: and make peace." And I said, partly to myselt-; "Why shouldn't Christianity .itself bo such a general peacemaker as that ?" "Ay." replied Mr. Broadman, "If ocoolc onlv believed in it properly." That very day we got tho baronet's letter, I was on my- way, in the after noon, to Cambridge Terrace, to pay rav respects to Mrs. Vincent and I had -sentrln a fewbotties-of good old port wine irom my own wine-merenani as least as good as can be got for money or love. Well, when I got near the door, I saw an old gentleman walking up and down, n little disturbed, appar ently, in his mind at finding himself in such a queer locality. A short, rosy- laced person ne was, clean snaved as a pin, and very neat and old-fashioned in his dress ; and with that sort of air about him which marks an English country gentleman wherever he may be. Well, we soon got Into talk, for I'd spotted tne baronet in a moment. and he was anxious to find out some thing about his son, as soon as ho heard that I knew a little of the young couple. "And you do not think, sir, that my that Mr. Vincent Is dangerously ill?" said the old baronet; and mere was a sob in bis voice as he spoke, and his hand trembled as he laid it upon mine. "Here Is the house, sir," I said, "and yon will be able to judge for yourself:" Wcwont In. At least tho baronet went Into tbe room, trembling in every limb with the excitement of seeing his son. But when be set eyes on him, the poor oU man was so startled that he could, scarcely speak', nis sou saw him and tried to rise, but fell back feebly into his chair. "Dear father," he mur mured, stretching out a thin, trembling hand, "forglvo " But the father was on his knees by tbe chair in a moment, clasping his head in his arms, and fondling him as he had done wbon ino man was a baby ' 'What bayo I to forgive ? You roust forgive me tor belng so hard, ray dear boy, and get oeiier soon, )viureu, py son. my son 5" I too had come into the room ; I could not help it. I was so Interested and ex cited. But I saw that in the young man's face which made my ncart sink in mv bosom like lead. Tho young wife saw it too, and gave one, two, tnree' snarp screams, as u knife had been thrust Into her side. Mr. Broadman saw it; and quietly kneeling down, commended to God as well as he .could, for sobbing the jquI of His servant departing. this life. And I well, why should I be asham ed to confess it r i aneit down too and cried like' a child; for, the. young man had died In bis father's .arms, at the very moment of reconciliation. The Fir$i Declaration of lit dependent. It wasn't Mecklenberg, nor I'hlladel nlik. whprn Inili'tiMiileheo was first dVo claimed, but In a letter from Mrs. John Adams to her husband. Wnen the King IsRiipd hid nrnnlnmntlnn for suDtiressIni rebolllon and sedition, after the failure of tho mission of Richard renn, Mrs Adams wrote to Mr. Adams In Phila delphia: "This Intelligence will make a plain path lor you, though a danger ous one.

LetYis renounce them ; and Instead of suppli cations, aa forinerlv. for their p.osperi ty and happiness, let us beseech the Almighty to blast their counsels, and to bring to naught all their devices."
