C. , Sept. 8th , ' 84. Finding the Capital very dullwith the government distributed around amongst the various watering places , your correspondent pendent took a flying vacation last week and saw more sights than are to he seen in Washington just now. Everybody has heard , late years , of Watkins Glen , but everybody has not yet seen it , though judging from the stream of trav el in that direction at this season of the year , everybody will have seen it some of these days. Having had my interest aroused by the enthusiastic accounts of friends who have been there , I conclud ed I could take just time enough to make a trip to the new wonder , and I have never taken a similar journey which proved more enjoyable or more replete with interesting features not even excepting my first trip to Niagara. Watkins Glen is one oi' the greatest natural wonders on this continent. I have spoken of it as a "new" wonder because its fame has but recently gone forth , but that great crevice -in those vast ledges of rocks with its wonderful caverns and beautiful cascades was prob ably there when Columbus discovered America. There is no telling how many centuries of time the elements have been employed in working out the grand ag gregation of wonders and beauties which are here presented. Fifty years ago , only on the more complete maps of New York could be found the little town of Jefferson at the head of Seneca Lak.e. Later the name was changed to Watkins - kins , and the Northern Central Railway pushed its line down the Chemung Val ley , touching the town on its route to Canandaigua. Soon after this the Glen began to attract attention , and now pal atial steamers plow through the blue lake where , within the memory of man , bark canoes tossed on the waves or dart ed into the shadows of drooping trees. Groves until lately the dark retreat of night birds , unvisited save by the hun ter , are thronged with daily picnics , while every jutting point , where once the timid deer stole to the water's edge , is now the site of a summer cottage or gay with the tents and banners of camping parties. The space of this letter is insufficent for a detailed description of the Glen or its surroundings , and ] can indulge iu only a few generalities. This canon as it may properly be called is one of the most remarkable yet explored by man. It is a vertical rift or gorge in a mountainous bluff , with walls varying in height from 200 to nearly 400 feet , through which rushes a mountain brook cf purest water ; now roaring and turn- bling over rocks in foaming cascades , again plunging over ledges in beautiful falls , and anon eddying about in quiet little lakelets in the deep ravine , down upon which from high rugged crags or rustic little bridges the tourist may look and meet his or her face in the water. 1 The Glen is divided into sections , each of which is given a distinctive name in accord with some one of its many beautiful or strange and wonderful fea tures. The division at the entrance is called Glen Alpha , and the section at the terminus , about three miles above , Glen Omega. Near the latter point the Glen is crossed by the Sj'racuse , Gene va & Corning Railway , over an iron bridge at a height of 1C5 feet ten inches above the water , one of the hand somest in the state. A short distance above the entrance to Glen Alpha , at a height of nearly 100 feet , reached by a beautiful stairway broken by plat forms for resting places , is a broad , sate bridge across the chasm , from which an excellent view of Minnehaha Falls is obtained , which is one of the prettiest cascades in the Glen. Further up..the rocks assume all sorts of fanciful shapes , impending , depending , and quite per pendicular , until at a point , the high and rugged walls draw close together Forming Cascade Cavern , where the wat er falls over the rocks nearly 100 feet into a cavernous pool below. Jfot the least of the attractions of a sojourn here , is the elegant Glen Moun ' tain House , picturesquely situated on the mountain top and surrounded by lovely groves. It is a delightful retreat , 200 ! at all times , and provided with ev- sry facility for comfort and amusement. The dining room-and culinary depart ment is located in a unique "Swiss cot tage" on the opposite side of the chasm and connected with the main hotel by a handsome , covered , iron bridge. Mr. Michener , the proprietor , is a landlord whose kindly attentions every guest will have reason to remember. Since his ownership of the Glen , much has been done to improve and beautify the entire property , adding to the attractions which nature originally created. Al ready nearly 25,000 tourists have visi ted the Glen this season , and the daily tide is only just at its height. It is a convenient point to be included in tours to Niagara , the St. Lawrence , and the lake region of New York. Nearly all tourists make the Seneca Lake route a feature of this trip. It is a beautiful sail of forty miles between Geneva and Watkins , going either way. Seneca is the gem of inland lakes the Conio of our country and the scenery along its rugged banks and cliffs unequalled. The Seneca Lake Steam Navigation Compa ny run a fleet of elegant steamers , mak ing six trips daily. The country round about this entire region is such as one might travel days to see. The beauty of its situation ; its high state of culti vation and the evident thrift of its in habitants , all unite to evoke admiration. DOM PEDRO. THE Terre Haute ( Ind. ) Express comes to us with a large hen and egg story. It says in substance that one , Bales , an honest fanner living near Terre Haute , has a pullet that has just commenced to lay. That , not un like many other young mothers its off spring was birth-marked. The first egg over which she fondly cackled was found to bear the impress of a hu man face. This did not cause much comment , but when the next egg was produced and upon it was found a distinct tracing of the American flag with the whole thirty-eight stars prop erly arranged the next egg was anx iously looked for. In due course of time it came and judge of the sur prise of the people , who by this time had taken a lively interest in the hen's eccentricities , when upon its surface were plainly raised the letters James Gr. Elaine. The hen had evidently never learned the art of type setting for the letters were in this shape , JAS. a. B ylNE 1884. Here is a study for naturalists or a field for a mission ary. * A POIT says : "The beauty of her hair bewilders ine-pouring adown the brow its cloven tide , swirling about the ears on either side , and falling around her neck tumultuously. " # Very poetical , that ; but after he is married and sees her hair swirling- ado wn the chairback on either side , or pouring its cloven tide over one end of the bureau , or falling around the bed-post tumultuously , the probabili ties are that his present bewilderment will be 90 per cent more bewilder ing. He will be paralyzed. Binghamton - hamton Republican. GIIILS at Charleston , Illinois , have got on to a new racket. They man age to have their lovers call about thunder shower time , and when the boom begins , fall into the arms that are quickly outstretched , and whisper : "Oh , George ! The lightning ! Take the pins out of my hair and waist quick ! " George then always re mains till the storm has swept by !
