It seemed to me that his mental vigor was much impair and that ho superfluous on the Mrs. Meigs was a intelligent conversed very handsomely of all things at Washington of which a stranger wished to bu and was quite favorite in the circle in which she moved. Ethan Allen Brown was a Judge of the Supreme and after- ward Governor of Ohio. He was somnolent on the apd did rot rank high as a Judge. He con- versed had literary and was fond of discussing the merits and construction of tho English classics. I remember his i ceiling some lines of a coarse critique of Walter by Horace in Lon- don. The following ore some of the that would rival Walter Like- Sancho from the blanket .Must .soar In lie served as Governor of Ohio two and was afterward Com- missioner of the General Land Of- where he acquitted himself most but was at last in- vited to resign because he set his laco against the questionable spec- ulations of some patriots high in inlluciicc. When he was about to leave tho I addressed to him a letter in which I called his atten- tion to the indignant exclamation of Dr. when ho finds Simple in his shall no honest innn come into my Gover- nor Brown retired and T lost sight of him. I knew little of Governor Worth- ington while in public life. He was one of the leaders of tho Republican party in the con- vention which formed the constitu- tion of and was much con- Mirecl for giving her a feeble exe- cutive. After his retirement from anil after I began to be he sought my and explained to me very fully the cause which influenced his political course. He told me that General innjority of the Convention acted linger the he said time and experience had satisfied him that he had been and that the government would be safer and with a stronger executive. I wtis on the well satisfied with his explanation. He was a man of vig- orous groat and force of and he left fa- vorable imprcsesiou when he re- tired from public life. Duncan Me Arthur was an admir- able specimen of the backwoods- man. He was a betwixt boy and in the Indian war from 1790 to 1793. He was once out alone on the Northwestern frontier of when he ap- proached a deer and bavv in it three Indians apparently looking for tracks. He instantly took and lired at the In- dian whom he took for the most and rose and ran. The Indian fell. Another instantly fired at and Ilia ball passed through his prwdcr horn. lie supposed he was but no Indian got near enough to be and he reached the camp of his compan- ions unhurt. He once told me a stf-ry illustrative of the rude mor- als of the frontier rangers. Lewis who preceded JMcArthur by several wns the terror of the Indians on the Wheeling frontier. He was a lit- tle active fellow and it happened that he was fired at and missed so often that they considered him nn- dcraspull.

An old who had lost his son on tliu expedition wanted tu adout and tried to dim. 1'lie night hofore he was to be burnt he slept between two his legs and arms tied with to stakes driven into the In- dians lying on the thongs. Late when all were the okl Indian cut the got him out without disturbing the him thu gun ui Ins lost mounted a horse and led the signing to Whetzel to follow.

When he had fairly entered the Whet zcl shot him and he fell dead took his and horse and being the best of the made his way home in safety. Whetzol told the story himself with- out an apparent perception of its but his brother rangers refused to shake bauds or in any manner associate with him after- wauls. I knew Governor McArthur long and intimately. He wns a man of vigorous but crude uncul- tivated. His of whom he was grew up to be fine. women but his sons were ruined by the austerity and distance of his bearing toward them. He was their but not their com- panion and confidential friend. I sat with Benjamin lltiggles in the United States Senate. lie was a highly respectable and I perhaps thought the bettor of him as we agreed entirely in our polili cal opinions. He spoke seldom and and always witli delibera- tion and judgment. lie was a man of mark in his part of many yyars after he had corsed to be Senator. Thomas Morris succeeded Benja- min Ruggles in the Senate. He was a decided but gener- ally fierce in his opinions. Wln.-n he first came into professional he waged a violent war with most of the other members of the pro- fession in his county and judicial in my somewhat loose information induce me to be- lieve he was the assailed and in- until made furious by'this and like modes of annoy- he stood at for and unsparing war.

My whole object was to see that he had fair a tlihsg to which he had been solittle that it seem- ed as if he could never cease being grateful. We were afterwards on the best of terms.

Mr. of Greene was recently Hie owner of a which he had raised and which was about two years no the largest dog in the countrj. On Friday afternoon. Mrs. Titneiman and a lady named Mrs. Eliza Huff returning home from a visit to found the dog oc- cupying tlic and would not let them pass. Mrs. Titneiman ordered him but the mastiff would uot obey until they both had thrown several stones at when he took refuge under the kitchen. A short time Mrs while assisting Mrs. Timerman incairy- ing some things from the house to the saw the with stealthy steps and glaring ad- vancing slowly toward her. seeing she could not stop the by word or at once pre- pared to defend as flight was impossible. As soon as the dog was near her he arose on his hind feet and attempted to sieze Mrs. Huff by the throat. Then ensued a combat between the woman and the of about ten minutes' and which j the Hon. N. P. Langford. The popular interest in the sub'- ject of explorations of the Rocky Mountain region was testified by the filling of the large hall of the Cooper on Saturday eve- with eager listeners to ihe lectTire of the Hon. N. P. Langford upod the recent wonderful dis- coveries in the vicinity of the head waters of the Yellowstone Mr. Langford has been a resident of Montana since was orig- inally from Oueida N. and was appointed governor of the territory in the latter part of Pres- ident Johnson's did not assume the duties of the of- fice. The lecture abounded in graphic and was fre- quently 'applauded. An expedition of nineteen per- including a cavalry escort of j five commanded by a lieuten- and assigned for the duly by Major General was or- ganized at and set out for a six weeks last August. The adventure was regarded as a very dangerous one on account of the presence of hostile Indians in the hitherto unexplored region which it was intended to visit. The ascent of the Belt said Mr. began from Fort was irregular and leading through narrow and up sharp and other ous until the summit was the elevation being feet. From this point an amphi- theatre of 500 miles in inclosing a valley as large as New with all its details of rock and is comprehended at Following the range to the right for 40 the eye rests upon the singular depression formed by the confluent streams of Jefferson and the Missouri begins its meander ing to the gulf. At the left are the glowing peaks cf the their summits half enveloped in or glittering with perpetual snow. In carppted with ver is the magnificent valley of the Gallatin. The explorers were much im- pressed by the beauty and grandeur of the valley of the Yellowstone and found canons rivaling those of the Colorado. They pro- ceeded directly up the en- Countering many wonders on the such as an immense water- columns of pillar like the and and and sulphur until in a few days they reached a summit from which they obtained a view of Yellowstone and to visit it left the well defined Indian trail and passed through a region never traversed by civilized men. The Yellowstone lake w.-is twelve miles beyond the mud and many days were spent in exploring the country in its vicinity. The lake was ascertained to be feet above the level of the sea. It is an expansion of the and is about twenty-five miles long by fifteen wide. It abounds in speckled trout of the finest and vast flocks of and pelicans resort to it. It is surrounded by stupend- ous mountain which are ap- paoached on all sides by undulating plains and grassy foot-hills. Forests of pine touch its it. and two feet in during the with loud dense masses of vapor.

It has an openin of six feet in cMameter. A. remarkable peculiarity of this gey- ser is the duration of its which continued lor three in a steady stream five feet in diameter and 145 feet high. Opposite our camp was a symmetrical like a beehive.about fire feet in diameter at the and with an orifice at the top of 24x36 inches. We had not suspected it to be a till one morning there suddenly shot up from it a column of water which was by to be 219 feet high. throws up a column six inches in diameter to a height of 250 feet. This was the highest of all. The rays of the sun falling upon the geysers in action produced an in- finite variety of prismatic hues.like broken-up York Tribune. for its fierceness scarcely has a par- allel in such encounters. Mrs Huff first threw out her left the dog bit fearfully near the and with her right hand caught the iufuriatcd brute by the and as soon as her left hand was re- laased from the grip of the dog she seized his under jaw with it. Know- ing from every circumstance that this combat would be a lengthy one. as soon as the first excitement had subsided Mrs. Huff oidcrcd the family to close every door but toward which she gradually but slowly drew the dog. Before reaching the steps 111 front of the open the dog had for a short time partially disengaged and bit Mrs. Huff severely on the left thigh. By this time the heroic woman became calm and and again seized Uie dog by the under jaw and throat and then began again to draw the brute toward the open floor. Finally she had reached the and began to walk up them and when at the top by sum- moning all her and by one violent threw the dog to the ground on his back. Before the animal could recover his feet nnd ascend the Mrs. Huff had entered the house and closed the and at once fainted. Her wounds were examined and dressed by a skillful who pro- nounced her case almost hopeless.
