BY BON. SCHUYLER COLFAX
The near approach of the, season
when many families and individuals
. be discussing the direction in
which they shall turn their steps to
enjoy the pleasures of travel, induces
me to write this article, commending
a Western journey toward our own
Pacific slope, rather than daring the
storms of the ocean by a visit to
Europe. The extravagant and oftquo•
ted exclamation, "See Naples; and die,"
has in the past turned the thoughts
of many whose leisure and. means 'en
able them to travel to the Old World,
where so much that is venerable, so
much that is picturesque, so that much
is noted in history,so much that is sub=
limo in grandeur, is to be witnessed.
.Not "to die," of course.: But to make
life happier over more, by the wider
experience, the broadened mind, the
fuller knowledge that results from
travel, besides the pictures of iwpres
sive scenery so often ineffaceably im
pressed upon the mind, and which the
Mystic power of memory can summon
again and again, before the mental
It has always seemed to me how
ever, wiser and more profitable for
Americans to travel over the conti
nental area of their own nation, to learn
more thoroughly by actual observa
tion of the grandeur of its more than
imperial domain and vastness of its
almost illimitable resoureet., as well as
to enjoy the magnificent scenery of its
mountains, before they ramble in re
gions foreign to them in all their inter
ests, and which excel their own land
in attractive features mainly in anti
quity and accumulated wealth, rather
than in natural scenery which glad
dens the eye by its beauty.
Of Salt Lake City, and the peerless
Yosemites, so much has been written
the past season by tourists that I shall
omit the reference to them here, and
allude to other objects of interest to be
found by traveling toward the setting
The Rocky Mountains and Colorado.
Where the Union Pacific Railroad
reaches its highest summit, at Sher
man; over 8,000 feet above the level of
the sett, but little mountain scenery is
discernible. Like the South Pass, on
the old route of emigrant, travel, and
Bridger's Pass, on the latter route of
the daily overland sta, 4 e, the frond
Pass seems to have been markad out
by Nature, leveling down these moun
tains that form the backbone of the
North American Continent.
To see the Rocky-Mountains in their
majesty, with the wonderful parks
(lying 6,000 or 8,000 above the sea
and larger in area than seine of our
States) which they enfold in their em
bracing arms, the traveler should leave
the Pacific Railroad at Cheyenne for
Denver, 110 miles south, half of which
distance is already traversed by rail,
and the rest a fine natural road, re
quiring but a few hours in a stage
coach, There, on the bank of the
Platte, with the apparently boundless
plains to the north east and south, a
sublime panorama olmountain scenery
to the west is ever before the behold
er. In the glance of a moment the
eye sweeps over one hundred and
twenty, miles of a range, with its peaks
and cliffs and table mountains, grand
ly towering toward the skies, spark
ling in the morning sun, darkening
at eventide, and blackened sometimes
by the storms that swoop over
Cities, and mines, and natural parks
aro emboaomed within it: A deep
blue sky that could scarcely be rivaled
by Italy, almost always gladdens you.
And the air that you breathe, clear
anddry and pure, is like a tonic to
the system. Two or three weeks will
enable the trave'er to cros3 the Snowy
Range on horseback at the Berthand
or Bowler Pass, stone 12,000 ft. above
the sea, with grand and changing
views at every hour; enjoy the beauty
of the brilliant, flora close to the edge
of the snowline; traverse the Middle
Park, surrounded am phitheatrically
by its encircling mountains; visit the
Sulphur Springs, and enjoy its healing
virtues; and ascending Gray's Peak,
15,000 feet high, see mountains rolling
away in every direction. Returning:to
Denver through the mining towns of
Empire, Georgetown, Central City,
etc., and slopping over at Idaho, the
Saratoga of Colorado, you can visit
the South Park on wheels; ascend the
majestic Mount Lincoln, chief of the
towering mountaiins of our nation;
cross the range over the valley of the
Arkansas, and the charming surroun
dings of its Twin Lakes; and return
by Colorado City, the Garden of the
Gods, and Pike's Peak (a mountain
standing out from the Range on the
Plains, and comparatively easy of as
cent) back again to Denver; the
whole of the South Park trip, with its
wild and varied scenery, easily per
formed in a carriage—except,of course
the ascent of Mount Lincoln. No
where, can three weeks be more profit
ably and delightfully spent by the in
valid or the seeker of the pleasures of
travel ; and to those who enjoy the
roughing and bracing experiences of
camping•out, and the pleasure of fish
ing in streams filled with delicious
trout, there is a double enjoyment.
The Great Basin and the Sierras
Dashing on westward in a "Pullman
Palace Cur"—the perfection of ease in
travel—you cross the great intermon
tane basin of the continent, which,
over 300 miles by 600 miles in extent,
wailed in by the Rocky mountains and
the Sierra Novadas, has no outlet for
its waters in any direction of the sea.
Here rivers, like the Echo Canon, and
Humboldt, rise, swell into fine streams,
and then, instead of seeking the ocean
through lake or bay sink Orever nut
of sight ; and other rivers, so largo in
volume as to be unfordablo, like the
Weber and Bear, pour their fresh wa
ters into Great Salt Lake—that inland
sea 100 miles in length, with moun
tainous islands towering above it—to
bave them converted there into the
briniest water on the globe—so salt
that fish cannot live in it, and so dense
that thoso who cannot swim float in it
like a cork. The grandest scenery in
this part of the route to the Pacific is
where the road passes through Echo
Canon, formerly the 'gateway , of ap
proach to the Mormon ;capital, and
fortified by the followers- of Brigham
Young against the approach of the
United States army, tient• there by
President Buchanan, in 1858. It is a
natural Nancy, cut through a' moun
taitcratige, opening widely ut its east
ern approach, with grassy and sloping
hillsides on either hand, but'gradually
narrowing in between bold and 'pre
cipitous rocks until, where it 'strikes
the Weber Valley there is but little
more space than the iron tracks re

Canon rival it in their bold and strik
Curving northerly, to strike old the
emigrant trail, in the Valley of We
Humboldt (apparently designed by
Providence, like the Valley of the
Platte, Echo Canon, etc., for the path
way of the swift, Railroad Company,
with almost herculean labors, carried
their trains over its summits. Words
are weak to describe the engineering
which achieved this result. Enormous
ravines filled up by the Persistent la
bor of years,
huge hills cut down to
the required grade, dark tunnels blas
ted though towering cliffs, a track cut
into the side of almost precipitous
mountains, where from the car-win
dow you can look down into the val
ley 2.500 feet beneath you, and nearly
forty miles of snow sheds of solid tim
hers to guard against the thirty feet
snows for which the Sierras aro famed.
All these triumphs of man over the
obstacles of Nature attest the gran
deur and immensity of the work by
which this frowning range has been
Nur is it a single range, as has been
generally supposed. There are often
two or three ranges, with their re
spective summits; and instead of
crossing them in eight or ten miles,
they roll away in a billowy succession
of mountains, seventy miles, and over
in width clothed in the living green of
gigantic forests, until, above the bases
which wagon and railroad trains have
sought, the lino is reached of perpetu
al, unmelting snow.
At Summit Station, over seven thou
sand feet above the sea (and at and
around which the summer traveler can
spend a delightful day, with a pleasant
and homelike inu fur meals and rest,)
you look down on Donner Lake, nest
ling no quietly and attractively
amongst. the mountains Its to charm
you with its beauty. And' you will
not, soon forget a drive on its shores,
with its unruffled waters at your side,
and the grand and impressive view of
the railroad track carved along the
fade of the range which overhangs it,
and which you can follow with the
eye for miles.
Bnt the pro-eminent gem of scenery
of the Sierras lies a few miles from the
Pacific Railroad. Leaving it ut True.
kee, the next station cast of Summit,
a stage takes you fifteen miles up the
valley of the impetuous and brawling
Truckee river, which falls 600 feet in
that distance, and there embosomed
amongst these mountain summits, sue ,
rounded by dense forests and snow
clad-peaks, 6,500 feet above the sea is
It is a beautiful sheet of water, 20
miles by 10 miles in extent, so exquis
itely clear that you can see fifty to ono
hundred feet down, as if it wore but
ten, and with a steamboat upon it, on
which you can sail the fifteen miles
between the hotels that are built at
opposite ends of this remarkable moun
tain lake, and enjoy an experience
difficult to duplicate abroad.
FASHIONABLE WOMEiI. -Fashion kills
more women than toil and sorrow.—
Obedience to fashion is a greater
transgression - of the laws of woman's
nature, a greater injury to her phys
ical and mental constitution, than the
hardships of poverty and neglect. The
slave woman at her task will live and
grow old, and see two or three gene
rations of her mistresses fade and pass
away. The washerwoman, with scarce
a ray of hope to cheer her in her toils,
will live to see her fashionable sisters
all extinct. The kitchen maid is hear
ty and strong, when her lady has to
be nursed like a sick baby. It is a sad
truth that fashion pampered women
are almost worthless for all the good
ends of life; they have but little force
of character; they have still less pow
er of, moral will, and quite as little
physical energy. They live for no
great purpose in life—they are dolls,
formed In the hands of milliners and
servants, to be dressed and fed to or
der. They dress nobody, they bless
nobody, and save nobody. They
write DO books, they set DO 1101 ex
amples of virtue and woman's life. If
they rear children, servants and nurses
do all, save to conceive and give them
birth. And when reared what are
they? What do they ever amount to,
but weaker scions of the old stock?—
Who ever heard of a fashionable wo
man's child exhibiting any virtue and
power of mind, for which it became
eminent Y Read biographies of our
great and good men and worsen. No
one of them had a fashionable mother.
They nearly all sprung from strong
minded women, who had about as lit
tle to do with fashion as with the

' The'sarno periodical instances ; an
other case that should supplement the
one just given :
A gentleman of thirty-five was sit

ieul symptoms present; still, he was
kno ten to be a'dissipated young man.
le rose, run fifty feet, fell, down and
died. The whole covering of.the brain
was thickened, its cavities were filled
with a fluid that did not belong to it,
enough to kill half-a-do Zen with apo
plexy—a greater portion' of one lung
was is a state of gangrene, and near
ly all the other ,was hardened and
useless; blood and yellow matter plas
tered the inner cuVering of the lungs,
while angry patches of destructive in
flammation were scattered along the
,canal.. Why, there
was enough of death' in that ode man's
body to have killed forty. The doctor
who talks about guzzling liquor every
day being healthy is a perfect disgrace
to the medicalnatno, and ought 'to be
turned out to hreak stone for the term

Josh Billings in a New Role,
Josh Billings is now in the editor's,
chair, and his answers to correspon
dents include the•following:
Fred—You aint obliged to ask the
girl's mother if you may go home with
her from a party j get the girl's en
dorsement and go in; it is proper
enough to ask her• to take your arm,
but you have no right to put your arm
around her waist unless you meet a
bear on the road and then you are
supposed to relinquish' your hold as
soon as the bear gets safelrby.
Whip—You are right—mules live:
to a lonely ago, and I have known
them myself to live to ono hundred
years and not half try. You aro also
right about their being surefooted ; I
have known them to kick a boy twice
in a second, ton feet off. •
Gertrude—Your inquiry stumps me.
The more I think about it, the more I
cant tell. As near as I •can recollect
now, I think I don't know. Much
might be said both ways; neither may
be right. Upon the whole, I think I
would or wouldn't', just as 1 think best
-Plutarch—You are mistaken; the
Shaker's don't marry. If young Sha
kers-fail in love they are set to wcddin
onions, which kures them fi,rthworth•
ly. 1 can't tell you how much it takes
to join the Shakers, but I believe the
expenses used to be, including having
your hair cut and learning to dance,
about sixty-five dollars. .
Sportsman—Your inquiry is not ex
actly in my lino but I haste to reply
as follows, to wit: The right length
to cut off a dorg's tail has never been
fully discovered, but it is undoubtedly
somewhere back of the ears, provided
you get the dorg's consent. N. 8.--

A GOOD WIFE.—The following sen
tences, from Archbishop on Seeker's
"Wedding Ring," are worth reading
East thou a soft heart? it is of God's
breaking. East thou a sweet wife?
she is of God's making ? 'The Hebrews
have a saying, "Ho is not a man that
bath not a woman." Though man
alone may be good, yot'it is not good
that man should be alone. "Every
good gift, and every perfect gift is
from above." A wife, though she be
not a perfect gift, a beam darted from
the sun of mercy. How happy 'are,
those marriages where Christ is at the
wedding ! Lot none but 'those who
have found favor in God's eyes find
favor in yours. Husbands should
spread.a mantle of charity over their
wives' infirmities. Do not put out
the candle because of the snuff. Hus
bands and wives should prove one an
other to love; and they should lore
one another, notwithstanding PrOT-Q::
cations. The tree of love should grow
up in the midst of the, faMily, as the
tree of life grew in the garden of
Eden. Good servants Ave a great
blessing blessing; g ood children a
greater blessing; and such a help let
him look for that lacks one; lot him
sigh for him that bath lost, one; let
him delight in him that enjoys one.
