The winter of 1779-80, Bays the Albany Argus, began as the present one did, and before the alight moder ation in the atmosphere on Sunday, many of the older residents, whose lathers and mothers had told them many tales of that ' terrible winter, were speculating aa to whether the present one would resemble it in oth respects. In 1779-80 the cold set in about the middle of November, and continued until the middle of Febru ary. During thai long period there was not warmth enough in the sun's rays to melt the snow on the ground, nor to affect in the least the fetters of ice that bound the creeks, ponds, and rivers. One snow storm followed another, until finally the ground was so covered that it was difficult to go from place to place, and the ice upon the rivers at all convenient points was uned by men teams and animals in place of roads. The cold winds were so peircing uiat wild turkeys were found frozen to death in the forests and domestic fowls fell frozen from their roosts. The deer and buffalo sought shelter from the blasts around the cabins of the settlers, and all kinds of wild animals perished in the forests for want of food, which was buried be neath the snow. The fierce wolf and panther, which ' usually skulked about the boundaries of the settle ments only by night, now came near in broad daylicrht in searoh of the bones and offal thrown from the cab ins of the Bottlers. No rain fell, and the pioneers were compelled to ob tain water for drmldng, cooking, etc., by melting ice and snow. The north ern and western rivers were tightly ' bound by froBt, and even as far south as Nash ville the Cumberland was froien over with ice thick enough for the safe pas- sacre of emigrant trains. The Delaware at f ULladelptaa xuvd ice three feet in thickness, and Ohes- peake Bay and Long Island Sound were frozen over. Another similarity between the present winter and that of 1779-80 was the mild autumn weather that preceded it ' When the cold began in 1779. the leaves had hardly fallen from the forest trees, and many of the f oreet trees and shrubs were putting forth new growth. The same condition of things' was witnessed last fall. The winters of 1783. 1784. 1785, 1788, 1792, 1796, and 1799. are all reported as having been severe. It is stated in 'Hildreth's Pioneer History" that on the 25th of December. 1788, the Delaware and Ohio rivers were both frozen over. and navigation was suspended upon them until! the 18th of the following March. In 1792, when soldiers were sent to the disastrous battle field of Gen. Si Clair, to bury the dead, they en camped where Cincinnati now stands, January 13th. The snow was report ed two feet deep upon the ground, aad the Ohio was bo strongly frozen that soldiers rode their horses ocrorai from Kentucky on the ice. The 7th of February 1807 was known for years as cold Friday, and was tha ground work for many a grandfath er's tale. On tha treeing of the 6th the weather was mild and rain began to fall as night Bet in- la few boors tha rain thaDged to snow, which fell to the dept - of six inchea, after which a hurricane began to sweep over Lite land.

Ha built a mill on the Cwsoent branch of Shoal crsek, abont half a mile above Simonton'a factory on said branch. Hera he lived several years, and fol lowed milling and hunting, though it is believed Mrs. Crockett mostly tend ed tha mill, while Davy was off hunt inc or electioneering. The venerable Wm. Simonton, a respected citizen of the place, aavB he used to go to mui there when be was a boy, and Mrs. Crockett was always grinding. She was a woman of great strength, and could handle socks of grain with great OtlflO. - ' w The mill is gone, but a portion of the dam can yet be seen when the water is low. The house he occupied still remains. It is a hewed log building about 20x24. Though the roof has been replaced by a new one, the old round log joint remain, we examined with feelings of interest, both inside and out, this last memento of tjie remarkable man whose name has become historicaL We have, also, been bo fortunate as to obtain several documents he issued while a justice of the peace, all in his own hand writing. He wrote a better and plain er band than we had supposed. We here append a verbatim oopy of an execution be issued with his own hand, which is now in our poeseesion: 'State of Tennessee, Jawrence county: To any lawful officer to ex ecute: You are hereby commanded that of the goods and chattels, lands and tenements of John Psiley you Cans to be made the sum of 8 eta. debt: whareas Brown & Nixon ob tained a judgment against . the aa Palley, before me given under my hand and seal this 10th day of Octo ber, 1818. JAyn UBoaurr. J. r. JCt has this endorsement on the back: "Brown & Nixon ys. Palley, execu tion. Debt, $3 82$ j Shffs fees, $1 1 J. P. fees. 87. The Crockett family appetrs to be of Irish origin. The paternal grand Barents of David emigrated from Ire land to this couptry at an early day and settled in Pennsylvania. They afterward removed to North Carolina, where they remained awhile. They finally moved to East Tennessee, where they were both killed by the Indiana They were -murdered in their own house, which stood on the ground now occupied by Rogers ville, the eounty seat of .Hawkins county. John Crockett, the father of Dayid, was born either in Ireland or on the passage of ms parents across uw ocean. He served in the revolution ary war, and after its close married Miss MarvHawluns, a native of Mary land, who lived somewhere between Baltimore and tork. David was tneir fifth child in a family of six sons and three daughters. He was born Aug ust 17, 1786, and was twice married. After his second marriage ha was among the very first settlers that oanr e to Lawrence county. This was, per haps, about 1815 or 1816. Here he commenced the remarkable career that led him on to the fame he afterward acquired. Lawrenoebiirg ( Tenn. ) Cor. of the Cincinnati Gazette. Portrait af Uncle Sata. In personal appearance, Uncle Sam is a toll, bony, healthy looking man, apparently of 45; for, though born in 1776, he bears his age well, and seems to be getting younger every day. He loves to brag of his establishment and puts himself on such an equality with the people that a train of hang ers on are always at his elbow. There are always at his table a number of gray-headed old fellows, who were his companions in youth, and of whose services be continually speaks. He loves to boast how Tom Such-a-one saved bis life at Bunker Hill and how Dick Somebody whipped a fellow that assaulted him at Eutaw. He often, too, wipes his eyes when he looks at the picture of a tall General, hanging up in his parlor, who, he says, whip ped a fellow named Packenham. who onee tried to take away one of his girls and a cotton bale.

Tha Union Pacific Railroad has CTled, this year, over 150,000 beeves m Wyoming TTitory to OounoU Bluffs, says tha St Louis Bepublioan. The cattle come to Council Bluffs, whom thev sell to feeders, who make a business of fattening them, bnt the great bulk, sat about three-fourths, goes to Chicago. About 25,000 head ware sold out of this Western ship ment to be f od, while nearly all tha balance went through to Chicago. The business is growing rapidly, from voar ta year, and has proved yery profitable, the net income for the last ten years averaging from 50 to 100 per eeni A ranch of 5.000 head can be run for one year at an expense of 1 per head. With a ranch of io,uuo oeaa th mat would average from 75 to 80 cents per head, and 25,000 head would . ,i . . j not oost muon over ou cenun a utanu. It requires to run a ranch for 5,000 head abont four men during tha win ter, and ten men during the summer. It is generally estimated that they re quire two horses for every hundred . . . . . i , i : . Head oi caiue, wuiuu iv-a w man about ten horses during the sum mer. JVeiTUUng IB UUUO uu uui air- back. Horse-flesh is iha cheapest muscle that can ba employed. The horses are ridden until they become tired out, and a fresh horse is taken until the oowboy uses all the horses allotted to him, then he begins again with the horses at first tired out. Each ranch has a trusty foreman, whose wages are f 1,000 per annum and found. The ordinary herdsmen get about $30 per month and found They are a rough, hardy, industrious set of men, and generally very trusty. There are no stables or sheds for the winter: the cattle run just aa the buf falo used to do. There is no cutting of hay to be done for the winter's fodder. In Wyoming the cattle drift during the winter from nfty to aawen- ty-five miles from their summer ranges. During a cold storm they generally move with it, and keep go ing till they get into a sheltered place oysome ravine or ueiuuu wumw v, traveling sometimes in this way twen-tv-five miles during a heavy storm. But to whatever distance they may stray during the winter, when spring arrives they are all found during the "rq.nd up," when they are driven back to their respective ranges with out loss, where the herdsmen attend to them until the winter Beta in again. The round-up is run by a regular or ganization, and is commanded by a a Captain whose order1 are implicitly obeyed. ' The attle are all separated acoqrdmg to the brands denoting their owners, and then sterted back Jt their ranges. The calves are also branded, and again turned loose with the herd. The operation of collecting and sep arating at a roundup, occupies two months, during wtuon inewnoieoouu trv is scoured by cowboys, and is usually a . Jime of boisterous eicite- -UtJIlll. Coniecture and speculation are rife as to the probable character of Mr. Garfield's policy towards the South after he shall have assumed tha ex ecutive helm. Jf is an eatepr liftllv profitless ' auesnon to- du fliws as lone as the precise terms of the Mentor compact remain uruuu- ed in secresv. So far as Mr, Oar- field ia personally eonoerned, ye have no doubt that, if left tb own instmo-a. he would seek to treat the Rnn them states with impartiality, and go down down to history as a man of broad, patriotic views who nan tacen up the policy of amity ana rroiernnv where Abraham Lincoln's lamented uand had bad left ii Doing this he would do much to redeem tha errors, eqiuvocstions, and kpses from recti tude that tarnish his past record. But Mr. Garfield has always bad a weak joint in his spinal column, and there ia no nation to believe that his election has stiffened it spaa to imbue him with pluck enough to resist the yoke of the stalwart faction. These tand committed to a forcible reoon traction of the South, They say that they will starra tiaat sectioa into giving Republican majorities. If it yields, well and good the party will Lave bo many additional votes for the next election. If it does not yield, then the old bugaboo of a Solid South must again be revived to far. the Re publican narty in loo, inis is umj i pnm.
