Amoa the evils of a new country is the rage for political life and Crockett was infected Wiki Liis mania and placed himself before the Public As a candidate for Congress. His struggle for this Honor was a Long one but he at length succeeded. He had Good lungs Fine health and persevered in his electioneering untiring Assiduity. His voice was loud and a i la Sui cd to stump oratory. Lie sometimes suf ened his accents to coax , but Niel iii antagonists with the growl of a Bear and the Spring of a Panther.

The proclamation says quot the companies of mounted men will be required to furnish them elves with horses suitable for the serve cd and with the necessary clothing for a six Montt s tour of duty the time they will be expected of serve unless sooner discharged.

A thirty companies will be received and As they Are organized they will report themselves to the executive at Nashville and will hold themselves in readiness to March to such Points of rendezvous As May hereafter be designated by general order. When assembled at the different places of Ren k Vous the Field officers will be elected by the volunteers composing the respective battalions or regiments. Quot tie executive deems it Annec Isary to make an Appeal to the patriotism of the citizens of 1 Ennessie a their Weil character for chivalry is a sufficient pledge that a Call for their services on an occasion like the present will not be hot Springs. The following is from a geological report of the elevated country Between the Missouri and red Rivers by g. W. Featherston Augh United states geologist. The hot Springs of the Washita Rise in Valley which divides two lol to ridges of of red Sand Slone. At the foot of the Eastern Ridge flows a live Stream.

Pieces of Iron Stone. 1 had entered the Valley but Short distance before 1 saw on the think o the East Ridge a Rock of a totally different diameter from that constituting the Ridge impending like a curtain Down to the Stream and i at once recognised it for a travertine deposited by the Mineral Waters. This curtain extends along the Stream four Hundred Yards and extends Back from the Stream one Hundred and fifty Yards to where several powerful Springs Are now situated. Some of the Springs Rise in the bed of the Stream and numerous others of which thirty perhaps Are rather copious ones arc found at various he Glits on the Ridge. Some of them Issue from the Rock at an Elevation of at least one Hundred feet from the Valley where the present log Cabins Are built. A More Beautiful and singularly Coa the mormons.
