She made her American d*-but in 18i37at the Walnut Street theatre in Philadelphia, a* the Duke of York in "Richard HI," with the elder Booth. Her fiixt, New York appearance was at the Bowery iu 1W8. Singing was one of her great accomplishments, and the entire round of youthful heroines was hers during a *BS- �- "� oiLHKnt. period of popularity spent in employment, mainly between New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Mrs. Drew has long been accepted as a most versatile and finished aefc-reas. For later years the Impression of her exquisite skill has been chiefly conveyed by her Mrs, Mala prop iu Joseph Jeff�v�oa'& revised version of "Tho Rivals." Hersonsaud daughter are favorably known to the theatra going public. Mrs. Drew was married to Johu Drew In 1850. She has made a fine record as a manager as wall as an actress. "When Mrs. G. U.

When we left the Atlantic and Pacific railroad our outfit consisted of a Mont team and a strong buckboard, three saddle horses and thrw* burros-the latter selecUsl for tho pur-po�e of carryiim supplies of focd and water when we should undertake ascents of mountain's, descents into cimyoiip, or should make excursions into regions that wore particularly i-upgml nud forbidding. Wo were well supplied -vltb food, Run?, ammunition and other necesyaries for Mich a trip, but after getting well out on tho desert and wandering aimlessly at�out for over a wc^k, owing to the difficulty ex|h*rienc�l in finding points nt which it was* [Kissilde to cross the deep gorges which we encountered daily, jr. beeuine evident that the horse?, as well us the wagons, were im-Iiediug our progi-ew. Then it was agreed that our uf the men, with the borws and buck-board, should return south him) make camp in spur on the nurt boast shle of rian Francisco niouuUiins while Kugeue Ackley, Fred Waito and the writer should continue tho investigation so diseouragiugly lx?gun. Freed from the engineering difficulties of getting the wagon over the country, tho remainder of the party moved much more rapidly, and ou the evening of tho fifth day made a "dry camp" snme sixty or seventy miles from where we separated with our ['ompauious, und on the edge of nn abyss *jW or 000 feet in depth, along which we had traveled for several hours iu a vain endeavor to locate a crossing place. Tho progress we were then making was more .sntisfactorj*, and on that particular day we had met with our Ili>t adventure on the trip, if adventure it could be called. Ackley had Ix*mi no fortunate as to secure chance shot at and to kill a magnificent specimen of the mountain sheep or ibex, and our delight over the achievement was but little greater thim our relish of a change from autelofw meat, of which we had already bad a surfeit. This subject afforded our theme of coin ersation as we sat till a late hour arouutl our little camp fire in that wierd and isolated spot, where most probably the foot of white mau bad never before trod, disposing of th� rich and juicy steaks which wo cut from our prize. While engaged in this highly satisfactory pastime 1 thought I hoard, arising from the bowels of the earth through the dark and dismal gorge, the sound of avhumun voice, and upon alluding to the matter was surprised wheu both my companions stated that they had labored under similar impressions or hallucinations several times during our camp 11 ry chat. Deciding at last that It must have been the sound of a distant and hungry coyote or an solian note issuing from the abyss, we shortly afterward rolled up in our blankets and went to sleep. A walk of something like a tulle next morning brought us ton place where it appeared jxjssible to make a descent of the canyon, aud Fred Waite, after prospecting the rugged wash, shouted back to us to come along villi the burros. For half an hour we bad been carefully picking onr way down the treacherous and dizzy sides of tho precipices, when the little caravau was brought to a fiudden halt with a start by a sharp exclamation of surprise from our pathfinder. Ho w.'ts not long in answering our blank looks of inquiry, by saying: "Boys, I'll bo blessed if there aiut two men down below here, and it looks to me as if they're in distress. Come and see." Ackley and myself carefully parsed the burros, and uf.uu reaching the ledge of rock upon which Waite was standing, and which formed an uugle in the walls of the cliffs, obtained a good view of the bottom of the canyon. Below us several hundred feet, and a little distance from the gulch, a camp was to bo seen, near which three burros werostanding. Near them was the form of a man lying on the grouud, and by bis side, in a sitting posturo, sat a companion, JJo fire was burning and there was no ngu of smoke, which, taken into consideration with tho inactivity of tho men at that hour of the day, iu a placo so lonely and unattractive for camping purposes, at once led us lo beliovo that tin?y were in a helpless condition. Two or three lusty shouts brought to our cars nu further response thqf a prolonged and dismal bray from one of tiA donkeys iu the s^eqinstemi dell, but in the, course 01 a lew nitnutt:. \vr, saw a red bund-kerchief flutter In 1u0 bunds of the man who was sitting up. That was sufficient. Two fellow beings were in serious trouble in that dreary, deflate region, and with hastorather daugorotis, considering the hazardous path, we pushed ou to their rescue. A pitiful and shocking sight met our gaxe when we reached tlie little camp. It was plain to be seen from their outfit that the two men were prospectors, uud that they had built no fire since reaching the spot, and had been uuublu to otherwise attend their own needs. They bad almost completely stripped their bodies of ail clothing, and from their black and bloated faces, blurred uud blood' shot eyes, and horribly s wool en and protruding tongues, we realised that they wore perishing from thirst. One could baruly whisper, while the power of speech had entirely Uft hb companion. A few drops of water- little ut a time, but at frequeut intervals-- together with a very small quantity of brandy, served to revive tho two unfortunate sufferers sufficiently that in the course of u few hours they wero able to driuk some tea aud taste u liltlu broth-prepared from tho meat of our mountain sheep- after which both men fell into the deep, lethargic bleep 0/ Utter exhaustion. Wo attended to tho burros and straightened up tho camp and awaited the awakening of the prospectors to learn tlie manner in which they had boeu placed iu such a btraujje predicament and distressing condition. They uwoko late in the afternoon uiad joined heartily iu the evening meal. Thty gave the names of Jerry Roouey and David Drlgge, and after supper Brlggs relapsed into slumber, while his more sturdy companion proceeded to relate tho circumstance* of their strange and painful experience, which was, in purport, as follows: A few weeks previous tho men left Utah to go to tho United Verdo copper mines iu tho Yavapai country, Arizona, following the Loes fori'y road. Being attracted by some mountains, they left tho road for tho purpose of prospootlng thorn for the precious metaia, and some duys later found Ahemselvos run* nliig short of water. They hud encountered �omo water tanks In coming out on tho desert* and had made up their mind* to retrace their way to tho rood by these, and theu proceed south, wheu they wet' with the almost in-credible experience which ueorly resulted lo tholr death. Just at dawn ouo morubuj ftooney was surprised but delighted to see a small troop of cavalry riding by* and palling tho attention of hU companion to tho faot, hailed thom. 'fo use Roouey's language, "they was u most curiam set y reached tho spot in the canyon theil.iy previous to our discovery them, for which alone they could rejoice that It hnd not Whittle their tomli. Roonoy's story was peculinr in but one respect-the meeting with the soldier*. It w utterly ini|kt^-il)le that the military wou show "sueh incivility under any oircmnstnn ce tremely improbable. It was off all muni lines of their travel, and us the Painted Desert not inhabited by white men, nnd is religious!_ avoided by all Indian tribes, through some great superstition, 110 reasvm could be assigned for an expedition of troops to that desolato region. To the phenomenon of the mirage or the effect ot a revered imagination did we attribute this portion of Rooney's talo; but while we gave t; 1:0 credence, it at the same time decided 11$ upon making n trip to the mountains where iho prospectors hnd met their queer experience, in tho bopo that adventure would fall to our lot. Two days sitt�seq(tent we assisted tho prospectors out of the canyon aud turned back on our now enterprise of exploration, notwithstanding the most earnest protests aud entreaties to the contrary on tho part of thi two grateful men. A week later wo wero somewhere m tho neighborhood of the sjwt where Rooney nud Briggs had been overtaken by misfortune, and strange to say our situation was scarcely mora pleasant than that described by them. It is true that we were camped by a spring, but we found ourselves ou a mountain surrounded by impassable canyons, and were even unable, after a search of two days, to locate the place by which we coino upon the plateau, much less to discover another route of egress. One afternoon, after having left Ackley to look after tho camp for two or three hours, Waite and I, upon returning from another futile search for a passage more important to us than one U> the uorth pole, were surprised at a statement he made, which was to the effect that two or three times since our absence ho had di-tiuctly heard a udlltary call sounded on a bugle. Ackley was much alarmed and highly excited, declaring that If wq wero destined to starve to death we should all die together like men, but that he would never again submit to being loft alone in that accursed region. That ho wasdeeply iu earliest, aud momentarily expected an attack from tho spectral troop the prospectors had told about, was made evident by the fact that ho had tied up to immense ricks, with double ropes, two of our pock burros. While we laughed at his fears, for my part I was not so confident in my own mind as to feel entirely at ease. After the evening meal and while we were discussing our phuis fur the morrow, I noticed the color >uddenly leave the face of Ackley, who was sitting on a rock opposite me, aud in great excitomout and terror he exclaimed: *'My God, here they cornel We are gone this time, boys." As I turned to took in the direction of his gaze the sound of a trumpet, in notes weird and supernatural, broke on the quiet, still air. In the wonderfully bright, yet uncer tain twilight of that high altitude, the sight which was tbeo presented was strange, startling and unaccountable, and created an impression of grave apprehension and mysterious danger that can never be effaced from my memory. Apparently emerging from a canyon which formed a junction with one of those we desired to cross was an officer and several mourned troopers, and as they moved slowly along by twos, their number at least reached twenty-live or thirty. The men were richly uniformed, partially in armor, and wore helmets trimmed in gay colors, while their horses wero heavily caparisoned. The soldiers carried lances and shields, while only at their sides was there any indication of firearms. To tho military of another age could they only belong, yet by the appearance of both meu and beasts was it plain that hard and heavy service had but recently been performed. Our astonishment, fear and awe were further inspired by the fact that while the little troop was scarcely 100 yards distant, tho rattle of horses' feet upon the earth, chaffing of bits, }iugtlng of spurs, creaking of saddle and other bounds peculiar to a moving squad of cavalry were all lack-ing-cvery movement was us still as death itself. Wheu at u ]>o)nt directly opposite us, the trumpet sounded aud tho troop came to a front and bolted. Thu soldiers dLa-mounted, uncovered und drawing from their belts long, unwieldy aud wide mouthed pistols fired upon our little party. Tho smoke curiod up, but there was /io report from tho volley, nor could t'ne rattle of bullets be heard upon the rocky ground where we were situated. Another sound of the trumpet and without remounting or apparently moving, the men as wdl us tho horses faded from our view as a mountain fog is dissolved by the rising sun. Before the startling effect of this weird and strange vision hud completely worn off, 1 could hear the sounds of a rapidly ringing bell far down the Ciinyou sides, and was brought to u realisation of the situation by hearing Waite remark: "Well, there Is one good thing about that hideous pantomime; those pirates have made. Jinny find her way out of this hellish place." It was true; our bell burro had not been tied up, aud iu her fright she deserted her less fortunate mates, which wore trembling as if la mortal dread, aud was rapidly descending tho puth by which we reached the plateau. Having located our route in this peculiar manner, it may easily be imagined that we lost no time in leaving that desolate region and rejoining our companions in tho more hospitable San Francisco mountains. History tells -s that wheu, in IMG, Coro-nado and his conquistadoros, 1,000 strong, visited Northern Arizona in search of the Seven CUies of Cibola and their fabulous stores of gold, a fcqa&d of his troops wero lost on tho Colorado plateau and aro supposed to have perisheJ, but I am ut a loss to see how this affords any explanation to our very remarkable onovuuter with tho spectral cavalry, iu 1883, in t.*io�e barren and rugged mountains, designated as "Soldiers' Peaks." -San Francisco Bvtwuiner. njgur aim-fas*.-Lady Duflurm, in her book, "Our Vice-regal Lit'o in Imliti," tclld of a tiger which in uinu month* killed uventy-threo men, Tho wholu neighborhood ent routed nu English sporUuiun, who happened to bo \u tho vicinity, to hill thu terriblu mun enter.
