To the sight-seer  each period has its distinctive features  that lend a peculiar  delight,   and   no  one has gathered all in   store   for him  until he has witnessed  the   rising sufi  Lipping  lhc   distant   mountain peaks  and making them to gleam like shafts-  of polished  silver, ot- seen  those hills  when  mellow twilight settles o'n their'  snowy breasts, or when   gathering in  lhe mountain  passes there comes (he  storm   rushing down  the valley with  increasing fence   anel   sweeping along  the hills  that  seem   to   smile at tho   .  feeble efforts   of  the   storm to sweep  them from  Iheir everlasting   found-i-   -  lions.     Perhaps at no one spot can all  ihese changes in mountain scenery Iw  so distinctly seen as   in   the   cily   of  Revelstoke, situated on the   Columbi.-i  river where it- is crossed by that great-   ,  est   of    trans-continental    lines,    the  Canadian Pacific..

Macleod is the scene of a very deplorable accident accompanied hy the  loss of Constable Scudamore, one of  the most popular members of the  N. XV. M. P. force stationed there.  It appears that on Wednesday last  with some acquaintances Scudamore  went for a swim in the river just  above the mill. During the swim he  became separated from his party and  went some distance down the river.  'A sudden cry for help brought, his  comrades to the spot but he hael  disappeared and was not seen again  alive. It is supDosed that a sudden  cramp caught him and rendered him  powerless to keep afloat or to stand up  as the water is less than four i'i et deep  in the place where he was drowned.  The bodv was not recovered until the  following morning. The deceased was  a general favorite nnd had made epiite  a number of fast friends. He leaves a  wife and family in England to mourn  his untimely end. A house was in  course of erection_,near tho barracks 111  wnich it was the intention that his  family who were under an angement  to join him should have livpcl.

Hence  the tobacco was   added.    Tho   man  who  docs not ii"~o tobacco would iind no   trouble   in   "swapping   off"   his _ tobacco to  some other   man   who   did   use it for an  equal amount of something to cat.

My Di_AU McQui'isx,  1 ptesumc you wonder 1 have not  earlier i'ulfiilud my promise to drop  you some notes regarding pur tr-ip to  the lvlondyke. Really the chief reason is the lack of mail facilities.  Through the kinel ness of the II. B.  Co. we are allowetl to send out our  tellers by their letter packet which  leaves heie by dog sled loth February  and which will laud in JCdiiionlon  sometime in May or June. (Here follows a description of ihe trip from Uaigary lo Foil Simpson, which has already appeared m Till" Hekald.)  At Simpson we take on board some  fi eight nnd lhe mail for Lhe northern  Mackenzie river posts and Mr. Cawsell  sends two guides along with us that  we may be able to travel day and  nighl. The Mackenzie river current  has an average 1 ale of 31 to -I miles per  hour. AVe have also a sail lo lake advantage of every fair wind, but unfor-  timaLely at this season the prevailing  winds are from the north and against  us. We have also six large oars to  push on.  Saturday the lSih September, with  a gentle breeze favoring us, we get  away irom Fort Simpson and reach  Fort Wiigley alOa, m. ou Monday,  13U miles in less lha_."i 10 hours, and we  had a half day dining which head  wind was too strong i'or us and wo had  to lay up.

Leave 'Norman a S -15 a.' 111. for Fort  Good Hope, 171 miles dislunt, which  point we reach at 2 p. 111., on Friday  the-llh, in a heavy snowstorm and  head wind, 17-1 miles in r-3j hours.

Weather getting colder and considerable snow falling. Head winds aUo  bother us a good deal. Tuesday lhe  2Sth September about 10 p. m. we land  at lied river in a heavy snow storm.  Good Hope to Red liver, about 250  miles, took us about 'ih davs, including  a deal of delay.  Twenty-four hours after* landing at  Reel river ahe.avy blizzard was raging  and the Mackenzie river iced over a-.icl  impassible. At Keel river the Kornan  Catholics have a Urge mission house  very com fortablv littf-dupand in charge  of Kev. Father;, L . F_vre and Gironx,  O. M. I., and a lay brother. They  treated us very kindly and placed a  lop"ITu _~St-^iT~t"ri _ p~gsin~B^  there.  On the "-'th of Oct. we ser.el our lirst  lot of goods across to Macpherson by  dog teams.  On the 12th of Oct.

As soeui as the  ice goes out in Peel'.s river we will  start out again, going clown Peel's to  the mouth of Iliisk'-y nver, llmiii'S  from here, then up lhat stteim to Bell  Lake, through it inlo Bell 1 iver, then  down stream to the Porcupine and the  Yukon, and up the Yukon lo our  destination.  Getting un Husky (or R.i!) river  eaily as we rto we will probably escape  any portages at Bell lake, or at most  have onlv a few hunched tect.  We dismantled our olel boat at Red  river nnd have built a ne.w one lighter  and smaller, with draft when loaded  of about 10 or 12 inches. We got logs  in llie hush four miles away, hauled  them out the to foi t with dogs and  then cut our lumber with  a whipsaw.  All the party are keeping in t.he  best of health and spirit.-.

We made the  trip down in ten days on snowshoes  with dogteani to carry provisions,  blankets, etc. Tho third dny after my  arrival at the island a messenger came  in from lhe fort lo ask ine to hurry  back as Mr. Firth's boy was dangerously ill. We started out tho following day and by hnrd pushing reached  the fort in six days. A fast trip and  a hard one, but the down trip had  hardened me up well.

J_.eCJII-.TY  DISASTERS TO WHALERS  The chief facts of Lhe case are follows: The ships wero trying to make  their way out round Point Barrow on  their way thro-gh Bhering straits to  Sun Francisco, but the season closing  iu so early they were caught in the  ice.  The Navaric was crushed in the ice  and ll of her crew lost.  Tho Orca was crushed and sunk.  The Freeman was caught in the ice,  crushed and burned to the water  edge (supposed accidentally fired hy  Uuskys).  The Rosario was pushed high up on  the beach by the ice.  The Fearless is fast in the ice CO  miles east of Point Barrow.  The Belvidere and Newport are fast  in the ice norlh ot Point Barrow.  The Jeanie is ice bound at Camden  Bay, DO miles east of Point Barrow.  These ships it is expected will all  be total wrecks in the spring. The  crews are at Point Barrow bu short  allowance of pi ovisions.  The captains decided to send a  pessenger clown the Alaskan const to  communicate the news to the Pacilic  Steam Whaling company in Frisco,  and sent a second (Walkei) to try to  make his way out by Edmonton with  word, so that the Whaling company  may make the necessary arrangements in sending out relief as early as  possible in the spring.  Walker has plenty of t;me to get  out ahead ot lhe 11. B. packet but I  fear he lacks push and will not get out  ahead of the packet.  AN 15ASY ROUTE  So far as we have found the route  it has been very easy and appears  lo be the most practicable route into  Yukou. Leaving Athabasca in the  spring in open water nnd pushing  through one cm gee into Yukon  quickly, easily and with plenty ot pro-  vir-ions, the whole route being waler.  With lhe spi ing high water the most  of lbe rapids can be run without  trouble (yet always with a guide who  knows the water) and again in spring  the prevailing winds are from the  south.  Wo  have had no news from outside  since leaving, so are looking longingly  for  lhe   ll. B.   packet   whicli   arrives  here in April.  Yours,  Sincerely and fraternally,  G. Macdonald.

To young peoplo of both soxes war  means regimental bands blaring forth  inspiring anel patriotic airs, dross parades,  fnoiil laco, waving flags, sham battles, or,  at most, brilliant; victories, and for them  tho air is "full of llddlerj."  All tho women of tho South, except  the fow who recalled with a shudder our  war with Mexico, expected victory to  crown our arms.  They knew nothing of tho horrors of  invasion except from tho pnges of history, anel having so many   of   their rela  tives on both sides of tlio country, thoy  did not elroad their perpetrating any  atrocity upon dofenceless non-combatants.  They feared tho enemy's bullets for thoij  fathers, brothers, lovers,anil husbands,  hut thoy wero firm boliovcrs in tho" efficacy of proyer; hoped and prayed for them  nnel trusted in God's mercy that all would  go woll, and ns the gay, stalwart young  fellows" strode lightly oft' to tho front,  joking anil smiling as thoy marched, but  littlo promonition of impending o\ il  troubled their minds.   .

Ono  whoso dulled senses rocogiu/.cd "Hook of  Agos," with his last strength called out:  "I was suro I should got homo nlivo,'"  and died happy in the thought. Onco,  whon I wont to a largo hospital coneluot-  ul by Alius E. V.

As every niilo-bodlid man rushed to the  front tho industries of peace sulTorcd, and  articles which hael boon the ordinary  necessities of lifo became, so scarce that  our women awoke to tho lact that ou  thoni would devolve tlio duty of supplementing skilled labor by thoir industry  and ingenuity. Thon theso ..soft-voiced,  dolicutuly organized children of nflluonco  stood shouldor to shoulder with tho work-  ingwomen of tho country.

If wo consider tho question of religion, wo shall at  once havo to admit that tho religious  complexion of America is distinctly anel  intensely Anglo-Saxon���������too Anglo-Saxon,  assert many of iho religious critics. Look  next at American law. Throughout, tho  Union the common law of England is tho  law of tho land. In only one State,  Loiiislnnn, its principles do not hold; and  its our legal readers will remember, that  great jurist, Chief .lustico Marshall, laid  it down that the common law of England is part of tho law of tho United  State=. Tho Courts of Michigan are moro  Anglo-Saxon tli.in those of Edinburgh.  Lastly, tho liter.ituro of Ainerica is  distinctly Anglo-Saxon. What could be  mora Anglo-Saxon, or moro "right ling-  li*Oi" than Feiiimoro Cooper, Longfellow,  Lowell? Tho statement is as tiuo of the  living as of tho dead, llow.olls, for example, in spice of his literary system, is  intense Anglo-Saxon in fooling. It is,-  howovor, not necessary to labor tho point.  As Carlylo said, wo are all', subjocts of  King Shakespeare.- As long us tlio Americans acknowlcdgo thsir aileglanco, and,  in truth*, none could bo moro loyal, there  can bo no doubt as lo thoir Englishry. It  takes an Anglo-Saxon���������i.e., ono who has  been brought up to speak English from a  ohild, and who=o father and mot'ier  thought in English���������to appreciate Shakes-  pcaro properly. The Germans may writo  far more learned treatises on Shakos-  penre's use of the infinitive than wc do  or can, and -may "i-cizo a do/.en new  ..pointoan llamlet's soul, but they _ do not  appreciate tho poot as does llio true  Anglo-Saxon. Only "un Aiiieric.a"h or an  Englishman can read' "Henry'IV" and  "llonry "V"' and feel tho blood tingling  in his..voins or his sides shaking with  'laughter. Thut is our history, our poetry,'  ���������onr lifo, anel'no other race can understand it and lovo it us wo do.
