Meitnlain Advcnlure.lul Wednesday
afternoon, a young man from Now York,
by the name "of Dodge, started from the
Mansion House on horseback, for the sum
mit of Mount Hutyoko. He passed some-
time there, and was detained uear dark by
a shower before ho began to descend.
Starting to return, he mistook the path and
wandered down the aoulhorn side et tne
mountain into a trackless forest Evening

came, and as lie did not return to ma noiei,
some alarm was felt, and lute at night some
persons ascended the mountain to the slop
ping place for carriages, where it horse
was lound' i.oud calls were maue, out no
answer was retnrned, except the dull echo
the lorcst gave back to the voices, l'ursuit
was renewed by Col. Partridge and others
early in the morning, and the wanderer was
found returning home, near Rock Ferry.
It appears from his narrative that he follow
ed what he supposed to be the path, after
he left the summit of the mountain, unt.l he
found himself bewildored in the darkness,
and lost the track. Turning himself in va
rious directions, his bearings disappeared,
and thcro he was iu the dense forest, the
darkness becoming intense and a severe
thunder shower rushing upon hi head.
His situation was painlul and sgoniziuj in

hausted, when lie sank down at the foot of
a huge tree, which in some measure pro
tected lum irom the rum which during the
nisht. descended in torrents. The first
sign of returning day enabled him to learn
his-aosilion : and when liijht eame, by as
cending a tree, he discoverod the far off
spire of South Iladlcy. He directed his
lens thitherward, and after some houra of
