The above will suffice to give the Tunger some idea of this wonderful re Gion which a few years ago a Looker would have said was m do for no possible use but As a Den for wild beast. I however May make ont exclaim surely Tho most Barren waste was not made in the Hardy Lumberman As upon his raft he tics flashing Down the Tia Dayton upon its and foaming Tor rent after whirling rapidly through narrow passes Over foaming cataracts and round dangerous Points comes Sud loops Over butter milk Falls upon a Long View of the Stream the Waters Settle in 10 comparative quiescence and where the Stream in bounded on both sides by High and irregular mountains and a scalable Cliffs where the owl sits hooting in mockery As they pass on and the from some High and Over hanging Rock looks quietly Down As Hough defying to do her on the left hand vide of this Long reach on the Eastern Borders of the Creek is a Long narrow strip of Bottom land con Taining in All about six acres. On the East of this the Mountain Elmosi a on the West is the Tia Dighton and beyond that rising abruptly from is . in its lofty crag grinning horribly at i s brother on the opposite Side. Between two mountains from id a. Lm., to 3 p. M., the Sun looks smilingly Down and his beams dance lightly upon the Clear water s of the Tia Dighton. Of this narrow strip of Intervale is a solitary hut which has stood there in its loneliness for Many Many Long years. When the first Lumberman Ven tured with his Craft Down the Tia Dagh ton it was the first Hun Ter sought thai solitary spot just above the Mouth of the Ica Awa it there solitary being sat within in and by his Side sat his companion and two urchins pral led at her feet. Around inc luit were Strati tin skins in Ihu Chase and on he by Ains Ubner i Eil m l pm Pun of of not Uver Thirl y and his companion was still Youn Ger the Hunter was invited to spend with them the and enjoy beneath their Humble the luxury of a Mii s and the Independence of a Hermit s bed. In thu Montina the Hermit accompanied our Hunter in his ramble and after fording the Creek and pointing out to him a vein of Copper which showed itself on the Western Side mar the bed of the Stream they scaled the Lofy mountains and surveyed the desolate Region stretching itself to the West and presenting nothing to the Eye but table larva of fish Ouk and v Pine deep nulls covered on in sides Jad at the Boito with Gigantic heart loan. Often rendered impassible by the. Beds of i Iuri wining Lnuri-1, and abrupt Lii a where b Zirri ii Ness i promo her Tirone.

Beneath these Hills arc the ruins of their temples their Cata Combs their dwellings. Deep deep in those solitudes they lie in Lombet a like mid Pompeii. In a in All their glory and their wickedness the almighty in his Wrath overturned their lilies and swore that they should exist no look net continued the Hermit but listen. The fires of that Terri Bra convulsion that overthrew them arc not yet extinguished. Often in the Solitude of night have i fires shoot up from these Hills till the surrounding mountains glared with an unnatural brilliance and then on some tall Cliff rising slowly up have i seen a giant form standing at last out in bold Relief his Arm Over the desolate Region seemed to say be Neath these mountains Are buried monuments of Man s greatness and Vic twins of the and then again the fires would disappear and with a deep rumbling sound As of a Distant strange figures would slowly vanish away. Us said he to yonder Point and i will show you a Jere the fires have found their Way through the crevices of the rocks and where they have in their efforts to become liberated cast up Large blocks of Stone which once composed a part o f the habitations of the strange people who dwelt the Hermit led the astonished Hun Ter to the to Uit indicated and there in deed the diet Iii of these fires was plainly Dice Nahle and Large blocks of hewed Stone were scattered in every direction nce Ming the re Mains of some dilapidated Palace. Still further on they on the Side of the Hill they entered a Small aperture and after proceeding on their hands and a distance of More than silly Yards they came to u spa Cious opening where striking ii 4 Light with the Ute Nials they had brought with , their was presented to View one of the most subterranean caverns the Hunter had Ever before beheld. But suddenly a rms sound was in the distance Ami the Hunter his companion had barely time to escape before a flames shot up from the columns of Slone acid were cast Forth and a terrible earthquake made the ground on which they stood reel to and Ivo like a Drunken Man. Strange to relate the Hermit and the Hunter escaped unhurt. They returned to the Banks of the Tia Dighton. But alas the hand of the relentless Savage had been less merciful than the earthquake and the a prowling hand of these Helf hounds had visited the peaceful abode of the Hermit and his wife and Little butchered and scalped on the floor. The lord gave and the hath said the Hermit Jand he bowed by the Side o1 Mur dered wife and children and in Ulie. A of enrich and Stone Over their regains and the Hunter departed. I 4 n.
