Eiery body knows of the Illinois River empty into the Mississippi at Alton and of the tonic Champagne country it Waters. All Are familiar with the traditions of the hardships undergone in its discovery by the Good fathers a Hennepin and Marquette of the stirring Ware. Of the Illinois potawatomi a and Peona indians and of he recollections of that cordon of military posts by which France United Detroit with the Point d App i of fort Chartres built Trinity now stands but of which Sci rely a Trace remains except a portion of the these Are the associations curtain and bastions. Which be in the mind of most persons at the word Illinois which to me however is Sugges Iivo of another Tram of ideas. In a South West Ern d Section from the Point of Confluence of the Esko Nadeane Missouri Rivers extends a Broad of which Little except the nine of tie Ozark in known. Many streams Vichich elsewhere would be esteemed Large Rivers Roll from its valleys northward Mlo the Osage und n a Southern direction into the Arkansas. To la Iris of the state of mis Souri this Ndoc passes through the North West to Katy of the slate of Arkansas and thence reaches across the country of the Clie Rakeeb and i Mactas far into Texas. To rough the passes of this Range Many important Rivera flow among which Are Llie Arkansas cd and Ca Nadienne. There is a striking peculiarity in this Mountain All the Waters flowing from it i incr northward or southward Are Clear As cry sol while All the other streams of the coun try Are foul and turbid. On one of these streams the Neosho stands the lonely Post of fort Gib ton and Twenty Miles below is another River tided tie 111 Noia. This la not a Large Stream Cha sunny certainly not More than a Hundred tries but is one of the Musl picturesque image Nible.

Several years since i Sla Lionel on the Bank of this Eream Wilh a Ali of men and without any officer. In inc Long August Days when prunes were burned and scarcely a breath Lobo had m Tho forests i used to Many weary hours upon the Banksie Ruer either fishing or bathing one Day nosed Wah an Indin Lance in killing pc Iii Fulo Fisli which i could see distinctly translucent Waters. I had posed myself Lebow of the boat in Pursuit of one Peculis fitly Winch Diot up the Stream Wilh Huv of on Arrow. Tho Soldier who sat Stern of the boat a very Active and Ner an Mic was killed poor fellow at the swim not however until i had upset the boat and made poor Ondrof a Sharer in my calamity. The clearness of the water surpassing any thing i have Ever seen is Only approached by the one Spring near port fanning in Florida upon which so much inquiry has been expended. Would myself pronounce it the famous Fountain f health for which de Leon sought so long1, were it not that every human being who drinks fits transparent Waters unless craftily qua i red Dies with that most loathsome of All Dis eases the fever and ague. The first while Man who Ever trod in the alleys of the Ozark was the famous Fernando de Solo. About the year 1539 or 1540, this Gallant Soldier Captain general of Florida and Marquis made a voyage to his com Mardery for he purpose of conquering it. Sailing from Harana lie landed at the Bay of the holy spirit Low called Tampa a Hillsborough Honda ind occupied a Indian Village not far from he Mouth of the Manittee River and just of Josic Trio present Post of fort Brooke. The ild ruins Are still visible there and the Trace of an Aqueduct or canal which appears at some Patant Day to have connected the Waters of the real Interior lakes with the people say he ruins Are the remnant of on old Spanish. Fort but half a glance will satisfy any one that 11 the Spanish troops Ever in North America Ould not have constructed that Aqueduct which o All appearance is old As the City of Seville. The rums belonging evidently to some older Nee and Are very curious though they have Lohing to do with de Soto. De Soto marched through Florida across the country of Apalache indians with whom he had fight across the m Issi Sippi towards Mexico. E Soto first of europeans saw the Mississippi and crossed it somewhere near Memphis if the inc omit Given by old Biedma his historian of Topography be True. Thence he now passed a rough the new state of Arkansas crossing he Ozark Ridge passing Over the red River and marching along the false Wichita until he ame to the famous Rio Grande since famous or the Battles of Palo Alto and Resau de la Alma and celebrated by the mexican to axe de Saltillo. De Soto did not reach spam but was forced to retrace his Steps ipod and who thrown by Hie Boldi tirs into the to prevent the natives from Multila my his remains. It was a filling lomb for so great a Man. Any one who wishes to read All he items of this great March May find them in old Biedma s strange Book in Tho Vidas de Las Conquista Lores or As those books Are somewhat rare in the compendium of discoveries until 1573, by Conway Robinson Esq of Richmond va., a person who devotes himself for amuse ment and relaxation to digging out the gems of strange old books most persons would think it hard work to read. De Soto first looked on these Ozark and a weary time his men at arms in conts of mail and Chain Armor must have had to climb them. They were then As they were unti very recently uninhabited and the Home of Al kinds of wild Bea Sis known on the the Black Bear the Cougar Catamount Deer and Elk were found among its ravines and the and farms were opened to that in a Short time the intelligent Cherokee citizens second to no agricultural class in the world followed in their train and Large plantations were opened. One of these colonists the Well known chief Bushy head has a magnificent estate comprising a Prairie and Grove of about one which has none to surpass it in the country a wooded Knoll rises at the Back of his House to the height of about 250 feet and on a Calm summer Day the Ripple of the Illinois May be heard in the distance through the forests and Green Corn Fields.

On the other Side of the Neosho River the Are higher and Wilder and even Dow Des Olate and in the year 1840 i crossed that por Tion of tie Ridge on duty and have a strange tale to Lell of it. After a furlough of some years i returned in 1840 to the West and after reporting for duty to the head quarters of the department was ordered to join a Squadron of my regiment then so aligned on the red River. The navigation of he Western Rivers was the most Uncertain and was ordered to Cross the intermediate country land instead of trusting to the tortuous Navi gation of the Arkansas emphatically one of those streams of which John Randolph said they were dry in summer and choked up with ice during the the old officers of the Post told me i might easily have my orders changed by applying to the general and advised me to do so As my Roule Lay through a peculiarly wild and desolate country. They told me what they had heard of the Ozark of the precipices and torrents the almost impassable a Tsacas i was however an old Conreur 2es Bois and All this but stimulated me to attempt the passage. Fort Gibson Lay at theh cad of navigation at Bat time though steamboats have since passed far in. A no of situated was fort Towson on the red River Between the two Lay the country of the Chero Kees Chattas and clip chases and Many formidable Rivers such As the Canad one the Verdigris and tie whole of the Southern tributaries of the Arkansas. To Cross this country with All i in april equipage other than Sions and a difficulties on the first wednesday 840, i left fort Gibson with no hat Cowsar Calls impediments one pack mule loaded with provi servant like myself mounted who it to avoid travel will generally find that the longest Way round is the nearest Way Home. After my arrival at fort Towson i did not regret my mistake which had made me acquainted with to Beautiful and i Hope my Reader in weary neither of the Illinois River or the Ozark . Wit and humor. Be thankful for the Accident which had led me into the bewildered Maze. I have stood on tall having threaded the Allegheny and the boldest peaks of Wilder lands. Above Rose a tall Peak with half precipitous sides its base skirted with a dense growth of the Osage Orange. This strange and Peculiar tree merits a More minute description. It belongs i believe to. The same Genns with the Box tree of our Forest for from its limbs and leaves when broken exudes a Milky gelatinous humor not unlike that of the Fig and India rubber Plant. Its leaves Are smooth and glazed and so precisely like those of the Florida Orange that the two cannot easily be distinguished. It bears a Large fruit in character similar to the balls of the Sycamore but which becomes daring the process of decay a noisome pulp and to said to be a deadly Poison. The size of the fruit is. About that of the Cocoa nut divested of its Husk and the height of the tree about thirty five feet with thick gnarled limbs covered with Long straight spines like those of the Honey acacia. By the Canadian colonials of Arkansas and the French of Louisi Ana it was called d arc from the fact that of this the Natchez and Opelousas made their bows. This Beautiful growth is now rapidly disappearing it having been discovered that it furnishes a Dye of a Brilliant yellow Long a Desideratum in the arts. During the last few years Many cargoes have been sent to France and the cutting it has like the procuring of log Wood become a distinct and important Branch of Industry Many stories Are told of this tree which would make us believe in exerts an influence scarcely less baneful than that of the fabulous Upas tree of Borneo popular superstition attributing to it the deadly disease of Man and brute known As the milk the base of the Peak before me was skilled Wilh thickets of Bis Beauli Lul Iree intermingled with the dog Wood then in the glory of its Flower and three or four varieties of the acacia and Canadian Redbud. Here and there on the very Hill Side were expanses grown up with the tall Green Cane and the Beautiful mexican Oats. Through such a growth i commenced my As cent and soon passed by the sinus Sites of an Indian Trail into an expanse of cup Ferous vol Canic Rock Ihan the Redroot or Indian Lea. Passing through this i cime into a Belt of tall Pines reaching far above the Crest of the Peak. No Engineer could have constructed a glaces with a More regular inclination than this portion of the Mountain displayed. At last i stood upon the Crest and a Prospect opened before me i have never seen surpassed or equated.

Human courage could not hold out in View of such a frightful opera Tion Sam opened his capacious Mouth and one Roar which seemed to shake every building in the Block to its very foundation. Two watchmen who had been dozing on the Bench of the Market House three squares off were roused and arrived at the spot Jost have an hour after a crowd of neighbors bad separated tha Sable due lists and detained them in custody to await the requisition of the Law.

After leaving the methodist Mission of Prospect Hill smoke was scarcely seen by the traveler until he had entered the limits of Arkansas. There were a few Hunting and bridle paths leading in a direction parallel to the Road which were frequented exclusively by the smugglers engaged in the nefarious business of Selling whiskey Tojie India feb. Since then a highly change has taken place. On th4 removal of. The Cherokee indians West the North Calina band selected most like their old Homes and established themselves among them. Hamlets grew up in the valleys rejoiced in the name of Barney. I often wonder what has become of him and when her like Latour first Grenadier of France he May have died on the Field of during the mexican War. As my orders contained no recommendation to make the journey with Peculiar rapidity and is i was aware that nothing awaited me at fort Towson but the monotonous existence of a subaltern i loitered along the Road systematically As a Veteran colonel in to rein Force a militia general and on sunday Lay by on the Banks of a picturesque Stream whiling1 away Lime with my Rod and Angle which Isack Walton recommends As " Foster ers of meditation and gratitude to god for having made so Many Fine Fisli foe Man s special and i was too old o Soldier to be without in the North american wilderness. Monday broke upon me cold and chill and wearied Evjen by my voluntary halt i set out to continue my journey. There had been during the right a a Mist and sleet so that the Prairie which on the Day before had looked like a Garden covered with periwinkles the Beautiful wild indigo and the sensitive Plant was now become a Glacier. I Rode on therefore wrapped in the Cipe of my Dragoon cloak and scarcely noticing i what a succession of peaks gradually descending into the bosom of a Vale perhaps ten Miles wide while beyond this Happy Valley Rose another Ridge parallel descending gradually As the one on which i stood had become Elee aled. A Clear cold Stream ran it the fool of the Peak on which i was and amid the stillness of a Calm Spring Day 1 disc Molly heard the murmur of the Ripples. Down the Bleak Hill sides of the other Ridge i could Irace More than one Silver line which marked the descent of tributary rills. I could have remained Long on that held Moun Tain Peak but was warned by the descent of the Sun to proceed downward. Taking the horses by the bridle for i committed the care of the pack mule to poor Barney i began carefully to follow the pathway arid was ultimately enabled to reach the base in spite of sundry Fella of the heavy pack which in spite of discipline wrung Hearty curses from poor Barney s Over burdened heart. I encamped at the foot of the Peak on a Branch of the Boggy or Bogne itself a Tribu tary of the red. After Many Days of painful travel precisely similar to the one i have described except that the Western Ridge was More difficult than the Eastern i reached the Prairie through which the red River runs. On the Summit of several of the peaks i had found Springs and pools of water and in the valleys the streams expanded into Beautiful lakes. In some of these1 valleys were grand Groves of the wild Plum and a Vari Ety of other growths among which was the Iron Wood and Box elder. The Cotton Wood so com Mon northward has disappeared. At last i in the North Western Prairie is aware that when arrived at fort Towson. I had missed1 the i once astray every attempt at correction Section and to reach a Point about on Hundred matters worse and what with the uniformity of j Miles from Gibson had travelled three. Then the whole surface of the country at Nightfall i i to Miles after leaving the later had seen passed around me.

C. F. Hoffman of York. Was utterly bewildered. I was forced to encamp on the Bald Prairie sacrificing to my com fort the solitary tree which i afterwards Learned was a land Mark. It made a very bad fire being filled with sap but sufficed to Broil a rasher of Bacon which with a cup of Coffee transformed into what the spaniards Coll a Gloria by a gloss of old constituted my supper. The sleet Hod by this time disappeared and the cattle hobbled and allowed to wander at will fared Heller i on the Young Prairie grass which they relished not a Little after their dry provender at fort Gibson. Tuesday came fair and Bright and far in the distance i saw one of the Ozark a peaks rising tall and solitary in just the direction i had not been marching Day before. To it i directed my course. The country soon become broken and on each Side of me Rose rough Bills. I Kneir at once i would be forced to Cross the Ridge and set Man fully to the task.
