Harper's Ferry, though its stupendous land and water marka visible thirty years ago, remain almost the same (though man has been hammering, blasting, and building upon them for all that time,) land marks whtch tell vrith tongueless voice, as nought else can. of the insrrutlbl# vastness of the power of nature'* God?partake# amazingly of the spirit of progress which has so changed the appearance of our whole long settled country. Nests for comfortable and well-built houses have been dug out in great numbers in nooks and crannie* of the mountains' sides that o precipitously overhang the waters of the Potomac and Shenandoah here. The town has Increased perhaps fourfold in population, and has been vastly modernized In all its attribute* Tbougb the bridge of which John Brown held possession for half a day or night, and the engine-bouse wherein he surrendered for the nonce, attracted most attention of tbe passengers, of course. To me, however, the point of Interest there was that loveliest of all views on this continent, which one may enjoy for ten minutes, out of the back windows of the hindmost car of the train going west, immediately after leaving Harper's Ferry. Or, I should rather write, that series of views, changing with the rapidity of the kaleidoscope, and each succeeding one extracting rapturous exclamations from the lover of striking scenery?of graceful and fantastic combinations of mountain, torrent, river-expanse, bright fields, frowning rorks. and the unmiatakable evidence* of the away of man's industrial skill over them all. Harper * Ferry a* tbua teen, will repay the voyager the trouble of a trip over the Atlantic, aa Thomas Jefferson once wrote, for this world to remember, though railroad* were not then dreamed of. to atiord the traveler a thousand facilities in a day for seeing new sights, as 1 am so pleasantly experiencing at this moment.

On the "turn outs" of this portion of the road, we uiet a large number of descending trains, laden with coal, produce, lumber, Ac.; on on? of them trains sufficient to make quite a xiw v> ton iicicucu one aner me other. Not the most uninteresting portion of this part of our route are the palisades of the Potomac, where for mile* on miles the (here) little river teems to have cleft the Virginia spurs of the AUe. ganies. along the base of which it courses now so ijuietly. As though with the blow of a broadax. for the height of hundreds of feet, the rock appears as though split perpendicularly down, only in order to let the insignificant stream nestle cozilv at its base. How aDt an illimtratinn??>.i? gradual abrasion of a river bed hundreds of feet below the rock surface?of the eventual triumph of patient perseverance! As we approached the South Branch of the Potomac, the quality of the soil on both sides of the river, and the breadth of arable land in the valley, greatly improved and increased The population there are evidently far better off in this world's ^oods than in the rougher oortlon of w?- ~ - m the valley last described. Washington's well known encomiu mi upon the cattle fattening and cereal producing capabilities of the South Branch region of Virginia and of Maryland adjacent, are deserved to this day, as the enormous yield of oats laying around yet unstaked, and the still more enormous promise of a season's yield of corn upon the valley a fiats testify. Above the crossing of the South Branch the mountains suddenly icatc me river uania, ana itie valley spreads out Into wide plains, bordered with gentler bills and covered with the fatness which gladdeneth the heart of the husbandman. The river here is hardly wider than Rock Creek at Oeorgetown. though in rainy times it becomes a terrific torrent, as the damage It not unfrequently does to crops, herds, snd canal hereabout testify The rapid descent of the stream of this more mountainous region causes its bed to fill past the capacity of Its banks to bold the waters accumulating in them. oft?n In * n 0 , ... ? .v .mi uuuis. i rum the South Branch up to Cumberland is a lovely region Indeed.
