The Doctor thus writes us of the trip: Fied Bellelsle and myself have just returned from Lamar, Colorado, and adjucent country, where it has been irrigated, and is still further irrigable, by tho great ditches of the Amity and the Henry. Lamar is tho county seat of Prowers county, and lies in the lieuutiful valley called Pleasant \ al ley. The buildings already erected iue made of sand stone and lime stone and brick. There are several resi : deuces in of erection; three | large store rooms, one livery barn. | and a line hotel. Tho buildiug ma i terial is red sand stone, liuie stone ) and brick, all of good quality and laid | lin most tasteful variegation. The] buildings there are made to stay, and j seem as firm nnd lasting as the tnoun- ( tains from which the resplendent ma- ] i terial was wrought. Lamar is quite picturesque. It is located one uiile south of the Arknn- < sas river, on the banks of which is a j nice belt of timber. Wheat and alfalfa j • are the main crojw. and do well. Ln , j mar has two artesian wells, and some ] beautiful fountains. They are bean-j 1 tiful at noon day, when tho rainbow j slinks the drops from her many-lined, ! mantle and weaves her changeable j woof in the glittering tissue. They ' are beautiful at midnight, when noj foot step disturbs the drowsy ear of ■ night, and tho soft rays of the moon \ l! fallinjf on the waving myriads of water I particles transmutes each globule into j la gleaming crystal nnd makes the i 1 whole swaying and sparkling mass j I appear like a shower of diamonds in \ St he fairy halls of a musician’s palace. | "[They are ever heantifal.
