Her name is Elizabeth Guiding ot Goldizon, and she resides in a log cabin at the fool of lite gorge which has taken her name. She ii> of German origin, and represents herself as one hundred and twelve years of age. She was born, according lo her own a two day's ride of Philadelphia, in and hrr Father was a soldier under Washington, and she herself was in the immediate vi- cinity of iho American camp at the defeat of Gen. Braddock, of which event habitually recounts a great number of interesting and thriiiing incidents, closing each paragraph with the remark that the battle field was, very wet, with blood.

Indeed everything about ihe woman is peculiar and slrange. In slaluro she is quite small, and her hair, (which is white as is very long when engaged in conversation, her countenance fires up exceedingly, and sha accompanies each sentence with the most animated gestures; her voice, though still strong, is altogether beyond her control, having an unnatural tone, and the wrinkles running entirely over her face and necli are as deep as we might imagine them to be after having been furrowed by ihe tears of even one heart for so long a time as a She waa clothed in the simplest manner, having upon her head common brown cotton, three, jar a month from b4 could still got her up to Lan- caster Sound jhis season, or, at any rata, to same convenient locality, which would enable him to fonmiehre early next spring.

During the whole lime that we were in her cabin, she was smoking some bitter weed in a corn cob pipe, and, though haggard and worn to a marvelous degree, she had a pleasant smile, and when either of her guests happened to utter something that was novel lo her ear, she would exclaim, 'Oh yes, that is wonderful Her only means of subnist- ence, lor years past, had been obtained by making hickory brooms, but even this business she had been compelled to give up, for she could no more climb ihe mountains lo obtain ihe proper material, and though she seemed lo be perfectly certain that she would be provided for, she expressed the greatfsl dread of the country almshouse. We inquired as lo her appetite, and she replied, 'Oh, I eat very little I never eat much, iouietimes nothing in a whole day, and neicr more thar. once a day, and I am well acquainted with hunger.' As lo her sleep we also questioned her, and she said, 'Thai's what troubles ma most; I cannot sleep now, I am so old, and so I lay on my bed all night, thinking of my great, good and sweet Father in We asked her how she managed to ob- tain the necessaries of life, and she said did not know, only that people whu traveled on the road sometimes stopped in to give her a little coffee or flour, her main stay being at a small garden of veg i Mr DKAH Ma. I wrilo to yon in much agitation and confusion of mimli which you will not wonder at when you hear that Captain Penny, with his two ships, has returned, ar.d announces the approaching return of Capt. Austin's Iron, after being out for only half 1'ie period for which they were equipeil. Ciipt Penny's let'ter is lo day before the liuard of Admiralty, urging them in the strongest terms 10 dispatch instantly a powerful steamer to Wellington Channel, in which quarter, to the north-west, he has discovered the passage which there can scarcely a doubt lhat the ships have taken since it is the only opening they have found any where, the hundred miles of coast hiive been explored in the lower western direction, of Cape Walker, Bank's Land and Melville a irace of them. Drift wood in considerable quan- tities has come oul of this north west chan- nel, and also a small bil of ralher fresh English elm, which Penny pronounces mus. have belonged to our ships, and was probably thrown overboard. Thus the right track of the northwest passage and the course of lite missing ships are idenlical; and I can only re- Front the Snulliwark. (Pa.) Heinlil.

Aa to her fight, it was as good as ever, and she was unar they might attempt the making of the passage if they could, for in lhat case we should have had no abandoning of the search till mnny more struggles had been made lo get into Dehring Straits. The barrier of ice in Wellington channel did nol break vip last year, nor had done so t us, whnn Penny left; but his explo- rations, which extended to 180 miles from the antranco, were made beyond il in boal sledges CO miles beyond this he saw wa- ter, with land standing to the northwest.

He is also convinced, wilh Dr. Kane, that there is a better climate in -hose more northern latitudes, with mote natural resources of food and fuel soire proofs of which he brings forward. We have every reason then to hope lhal some of our lost friends and countrymen may yet be able to support life in this re- gioii, though unable to return by the way wli ch they came; and the absence of any trace of them north of Cape I lines, on the eas side of Wellington channel, proves nothing at all againsl il, since they were not likely lo linger on iheir way to exam- II waa yuuu da GYCI, ciuu ouc TTCIW uuuv----------- j o qnainted wilh the use of spectacles.

As a matter of course, my companions and I made up a little purse for her benefit, and when we gave it to her, it seemed as though she would embrace us in spite of our disinclination. Indeed ive made her a number of tri- fling presents, and ahe expressed her gratitude by weeping, and assuring us lhat 'her Father in ihe Heavens' would bless us and make us happy wherever we might go. And I can assure ihe reader that the tears shed by that old woman of five score yeais and ten were not the only ones that sprung into the eyes on that occasion, albeit we were unused to weep- ing. But I have not yet given the reader an idea of the home of this lonely being in truth it baffles description. Her near- est neighbor is some four miles off, and her only companions in her solitude, are a little dugnnd cat. Her cabin stands near the water's edge, and directly on the hill side; it is without window, but light in abundance conies in from ihe gaping roof and sides of the black and mouldering log habitation) the chimney of which of mud and sticks, and in a dilapidated con- dition. Her bedstead is made of small pine sticks, with the bark still on her couch consisting of hemlock boughs, covered with straw, upon which are two or three dlielves, where are displayed her cooking and eating utensils, the original cost of which (and they were very old and worn) could not have been more than one dollar. An old stool answers the pur- pose of a. chair, and a board nailed to the sida of the cabin is her only table hang- Ing from the logs at the sidt of her bed are two or three old gowns, which help to keep out the air and the rain she is also the owner of a spinning wheel and from the services of the logs around, shore and everywhere, depended bunches of herbs and faded flowers which abe had gathered in her rambles, but there was a taste and neatness in the arrangement of the miserable furniture of the room which gave it a really cheerful aspect. We aik- ed the old woman if aha never apprehen- ded any danger while thus living so utter- ly alotre, and "he replied, 'of course not; who would harm a poor forsaken being like me I I ain't afraid even of the bears, for its only last fall that one came down here and scratched up my garden, but drove him off with a big stick.' Up to on at fast as possible while the opporlu nit'' favored them and the next traces to fobiid would probably bo iheir sec- ond winter quarters. In con firm at ion of this tills me that there are signs of their first winter encampment at 13ac'hey Island, of their having left it suddnnly and that the summer of 1846, though extremely un- favorable lo the whalers, who, on account of the prevailing winds, could not cross to the wesiaide of Baffin's Bay, musi have been quite the reverse to our nav- igators. You may imagine in what a state of anxiety and agitation we are, til! we learn tlie decision of the Admiralty on the appeal now made to them. I have written a strong letter also, and I know that Sir F. Beaufort, Capt. Hamilton and Mi. Barron, who are at their posts, will allege the necessity of prompt measures wilh all their powers. Should we fail. we must look to America alone as our sources. To you will belong all the vir- tue and credit of the search when our own countryman fail, and loyoti will belong the honor and glory uf sue coring ihe distressed and of settling forever thi'l vexed question, which for centuries it has been the ambition of Europe, and of England in particular, to solve.
