War headquarters. First, I live - jive:into*. And
now let me say, right here, that there ere two
Cantons; one is located here, and thB other is
not ; this is the first mentionediduce; but in or
der that they may not be confounded I will dis
tinguish further, by paying that one "Canton is
on the upper, and the other on the under side of
the earth—this one is on top.
This village is situated on the Northern Cen
tral railroad, abont forty miles from Elmira, and
an equal distance from Williamsport. It was
located. so on purposeao as not to interfere with
the prosperity and givtli of those thriving little
places. Canton, as near as I can find out, was
discovered by a man by the name of John Smith,
who, a great many years ago, or more, floated up
the Lycoming oreek on a saw log. Arriving op.
posito the site of this place, the log struck_ a rif
fle, and rolling threw him off: into the jnlce and
he immediately named the,lplace Cant:on—the
meaning of which, I suppose, was thathe eould'pt
keep on the log. I don't, bet anything on do
above statement; but r gave a little boy with a
bolo in the elbow of his breeches whore ho sits
flown, a quarter r for the above little tale; and if
it does'nreost your readers any more than that,
they don't need to blow, whether they believe it
or not. '
Tbo country about Canton is very picturesque;
and to one-born and brought up on a dead level,
would ho highly interesting and immensely 'en
tertaining. The chief agricultural productions
are butter, cheese, garden sauce, pine and hom- ;
look lumber, coal and iron ore. Liko alUlarga
places, we have our points of general interest.—
Boston has its Bunker Hill; Philadelphia has its
Cradle of Liberty, or Independence Hall, I have
which; " Romp had its Canute; and
Canton hae its Alinnequa. Minnequa is an Indi
an name, signifying a plaeo to get a drink.—
(Most places have their minnequas.)
Minnequa is quite a place, but is'nt 13alf as
big as its name. , It is compesed - of a big hotel,
"The Minncqua House," a big barn, "The Min
nequa house Barn," and a big spring, "The Min
nequa Spring." The population of Minneque
comprises . the, proprietor of the, hotel, his wife,
two horses, a couple of new-milk cows, and a
flock of sheep;—the last named individualsq
however, are only staying temporarily at the
springs, and I understand that they intend to
sell out to a Canton butcher this spring and go,
to Muttonvillo. . .
The big thing at Minnequa Is the 'Spring. It
is composed of some forty ingredients, the name
of any, one of which would give a man the blind
staggers to look at for three consecutive minutes,
and an attempt to pronounce it would bring on a
compound fraoturo of the jaw. It is warranted
to cure all diseases, and mere toe, which we faith
fully believe; and if-a person will makoian ex
clusive and a steady diet of it, ho will be a con
founded foul if he dies in a hurry. The contents
of this spring aro called "Mineral Water," and
yield about forty per cent. of pure gold to the
gallon ; gallon Is four quartz).
The founder-of this celebrated place is a man
traveling under the classical name of PETnu.—
Now there have been several distinguished men
by flint name, nut I don't want your readois to
get them mixed. There was.,the set iptural Peter,
who seems to have been celebrated for his nowt-
Wu qualities, and - Petitthe (treat, and Peter the
!lentil, and Petm• TUer, lute ph in Eater ;—but

THE THREE WAYS.,=—Throtigh a
rough region of the Eastern world Adoniram,
the pilgrim, pursued Ids twittery journey. Near
the foot of a mountain he came to a place
where three ways mot, and was at a loss to know
how he ought to proceed. Weary and foot-sore,
be seated himself in the ehado of the rook by the
wayside to rest, and fain would have rested Prig,
but the - lengthening shadows admonished that
the day was far spent. Ile had started in the
morning cheered by. the hope that this would be
the last day of his pilgrimage. For his. eyes had
been gladdened by the distant view of a city,
which Was the object of his hopes. But he found
the journey long and Moult. Often ho had lost his
way, wandering into unfrequented paths: and
again ho was misled by wrong direction's given
by a stranger. lio at last began to fear least the
night should add its gloom to tho darkness with
in. Like as a pure limpid stream exposes to
view ail the stones and pebbles which lie in its
bed, so the honest 'face of the 'pilgrim showed
plainly the deep troublo of the soul within—But

him. 'Tlitiso barren 'reeks were not 'habitations
for men. While thus forlorn lindidejeeted,,ho was
distiarbed in his musings by theNeititi'ef a hermit
_calling him : " Pilgrim, dolt thou know that I
am a friend to the wanderer ? I dwell in-a secret
(lave 'that I may guide the pilgrim,on his way,
and toll him of thoso who have ' gone before.—
Wouldet thou know of those threemaYs ? Though
