WASHINGTON, PA., Aug. 3, 1868..
A visit to the country is a luxury not
'often indulged in by "ye local," and - for
that reason, perhaps, is by him more fully
appreciated. An opportunity having been
afforded us of spending a few days in the
"rural districts" we shipped for this point,
arrived after a tiresome journey of seven
hours,' and will, give our readers an
account of •
At 3:415 p. m., oa Saturday, the first in
stant, having-previously purchased a ticket
for Washington, via the Panhandle Rail=! road to McDuLald's station, thence by
Messrsala.re rt Son's line of atages; we took
passage in the Steubenville accommoda
tion train, and upon entering the car found
two exceedingly pleasant traveling com
panions, one being our very, efficient Pro
thonotary, and :the 'other a prominent
young "limb of the law,!' both shipped for
the same point as ourselves. The Condue
- for cried "all aboard,'? pulled the bell rope
and the train started. In a few minutes we
passed through the city tunnel, crossed the
Monongahela bridge,, and. the, engineer
whistled "down brakes" for the South
, Pittsburgh station; :There the ,number of
passengers, which was already quite re
spectable, was largely increased - filling the
cars to their utmost capacity. The bell rope
was once more brought _ into requisition,
and' We Were once - more set in motion,
• passing along the side of the hill, it a Burn
cient height above the level of the dingy,
smoky iron. mills and glass houses of Mon
ongahela Borough and West Pittsburgh to
afibrd the m:z ehgers a most
view of Pittsburgirand Allegheny City. A
momentary :goo was made at Temperance.
villa Station, and we were again moving
westward. Leaving the city, with its smoke -
-and.dust in the rear, we went whirling
doWn the south bank_of the Ohio, from
whence we had a delightful view
of the lower portion of Allegheny,
,which, from its - numerous shade
trees,-now thick with foliage,reminds one
of the "Forest Arriving at the
mouth of ,Chartiers creek, we'.leave • the
river, and passing through a deep ravine
emerge into a rich 'and fertile valley-, in
which the hand of industry and. spirit of
improvement are alike apparent at.'every
point. Leaving this valley the mid is cut
through an immense hill and emerges into
another valley moVe extensive and far
more picturesque than the lint. Here the
vast coal fields are entered, and for the first
time since leaving the city the necessity of
a double track becomes apparent to the
passenger, hnd we presume more so to the
- employes of the' road, as considerable de
lay was ocogsirmed in passing, an- immense
coal train. All along the line of the road,
as far as we traveled over it, the land is fer
tile and in a high State of cultivation, and

Nothing of unusual interest occurred
during the ride over the road, except the
slaughter of a flock of geese whioh
-to heed the warning given by the engineer,
the result of which was quite a much her of
them were killed and crippled. ,
THE STAGE RIDE.
We arrived at McDonald's Station at five
o'clock; and; as soon as we could get our
baggage, made for the stage, to secure a seat,
with a degree of haste which we afterward
found to be altogether unnecessary, as the
driver haa kindly "reserved" us a seat on
the "hind boot," hiving crowded the other
seventeen: passengers—two ladies and fif
teen gentlemen---,ol:nolding tickets• calling
for a first-class pasiage to Canonsburg or
Washington—in the inaide and on top of the
vehicle, which was only constructed for the
accommodation of nine passengers. After
stowing away_ the-baggage, of which there
was a considerable quantity,. "Tehtt"
mounted the box,' cracked his whip, and
we left" the • station at a "snail's gallop,"
which was kept up to the end of -theour
ney. The road, with the exception of -t hat
portion of it which is "corduroyed," is com
paratively smooth, but we found our seat on
the "boot" rather an , unpiwant one, as it
required all our attention, skill and strength
to maintain it. • •
Among thfi passengers were Mr. Swan,
editor of the Waihington Ezdminer, and
Mr. Grayson, of the Meadville Democrat,
who, like ourselves, bad beerfaccommoda
ted with "deck passage" and also , five oth
ers—gentlemen whose-names wehave for
gotten. Notwithstanding the. heavy load,
we reached Canonsburg, a distance of nine
miles from Donald's Station, at eight
After changing horses and taking supper
at Canonsburg, we started for Washington,
where we arrived at ten o'clock.
This is Commencement week at Wash
ington and Jefferson College. Although the
exercises will take place at Canonsburg,
there are quite' a number, of persons in
town, who - have ccme to attend the exami
nation of the classes here, and we presume
will also visit Caaonsburg to witness the

,Saturday,tne first of August, was celebm
ted by the colored people of this locality by
a grand pio-nie, which was tkorticipatod in
by the entire colored population. The fact
of this affair being allowed to pass without
interruption, is of itself an evidence of im
provement in the political feeling in this
place, and the entire , community, of both
parties, are well satisfied with the change.
A: CUTTIIIO AFFRAY.
An affray occurred hers.. on Satur
day night between two negroes named Bo
len and Freeman, in which the latter was
severely cut with a :razor: After the pic
nic a number of 'coldred people adjourned
to a house in "Hayti,' in the upper portion
of the town, to have 'a dance, where a diffi
culty took place between the parties named.
when Boleti 'drew a razor from his.ket
and struck Freeman twice, each time in

We desire to say to the readers of our
"Mountain Jottings" that we do not belong
to the "Jenkihs family," not even a cousin
of the remotest grade. We propose to deal
in facts not fancies of the brain, as the glow
ing letters of the Jenkins tribe indicate
from their high coloring.
Comparatively few persons are aware of
there being such a beautiful spot as the
"Mountain House t " at Crosson, on the
summit of the Alleghenies. , Nattire and
muscle, and Money, have made the locality
a lovely spot, wnere visitors can enjoy a
vast amount of comfprt not found in the
pent-up-heated cities. Being in the neigh
borhood we took occasion to visit this tar
famed garden spot, and spend several hours.
The grounds ,are very extensive, embra
cing some hundreds of - acres, and almost
entirely- - covered with forest timber. The
hotel buildings are located on a beautiful
Slope,- above the dent for the railroad track,
and almost hid to sight by the dense foliage.
It is an admirable location, and full of ro
mantic interest. During the hottest weath
er visitors have felt but little heat, and the
evenings are especially delightful and cool.
Besides the hotel proper quite a number
of elegant cottages dot the spacious grounds.
All the cottages are now occupied for the
season. The hotel is full and will likely
remain so during the heated term. Visitors,
however, are constantly on the wing, by
which new corners are furnished with ac
commOdations. Many come for a day only,
or a portion of one, thus_ multid nes enjoy
this favorite spot. ;-
The guests are generally from' Philadel
phia and Pittsburgh. Quite a number,
however, are from New York, Baltimore,
Boston and Wa.shinsrton City., Visitors are
also from Cincinnati and other Western lo
calities. Ammik the Pittsbnrghers we

the absence of many of the - -sham Cristo=
Which prevail at fashionable places of re

in their toilet, preparation as at horne,•ex

musie.:l The bane of watering places is the
prodigality encouraged by expensive dress
ing, gaining, intemperance, etc. . Most of
these fashionable resorts are lopated in a
village, or in claw proximity, inducing a
aegree of immoralities that render such
places offensive to the better class of per
sons. The Mountain House at Cresson
Springs is free from these annoyances. It
is literally a community by itself,_ without
the excresences named. -
Not the least notiCeable feature is the
class of well-to-do people gathered here.
Men of solid worth and solid mean.s, who
and not in sympathy with the namby
pamby notions of fast people or fast places.
Mr. G. W. Mullin deserves well the patron
age so, liberally bestowed uponhirn, for the
extert.stve outlay be has made to make this
"wilderness blossom as the rose," and af
ford so much substantial comfort to visitors
during the heated term. Mr. Mullin super-
intends in person, and is ably assisted -by
his brother. Cresson being of easy access
and not very distant from Pittsburgh, we
look forrco any visitors from the Smoky City.
