Relief for the Polaris Canteway*. SECRETARY ROBESON DIRECTS MONET TO BE Ft RNISHBD THEM AMD A NAVAL VESSEL SEKT TO BRING THEM HOME AT OBCB. Secretary Robeson has received another tele giam from Consul Molloy at St. Johns, stating that the crew of the Polaris, which arrived there on the Tigress are badly in want of money and also asking h- he should advance funds to them. Mr. Molloy aHo states that the harboi of St Johns is still locked with ice. Secretary Robeson promptly telegraphed In reply that 31 r. Molloy should furnish the necessary 'means to the survivors and draw on him to be reim burned. He also gave orders that the United States steamer Frolic, now at New York, should proceed to St. Johns and bring home those of the Polaris' crew now there, and this morning received a reply that the Frolic was all ready. He then directed that she voyage to-monow, May 15th. 1 be 1- rolic is a fourth-rate side-wheel steamer, with a battery of eight howitzers. She Is com manded bv Lieut. Commander C. M. Schoon maker, ana has on board the following officers Lieutenants. Geo. W. Coster,Sidney A.Simons, Cornelius R. Meeker, Edward W. Bridge and J. D. J. Kelley; Mate, John Wyckoff; Medical Inspector, F. M. Gunnell; Assistant Surgeon, H. Aulich; Assistant Paymaster, L. G. Bwn First Assistant Engineer. Samuel Gragg;ai do., William S.Moore: 2d Lieutenant ot Ma rines, G. T. Elliott; Gunner, Wm. A. Ferrier. Some difficulty may be experienced in reach ing St. Johns oh account of the ice, but under favorable circumstances she can reach there in tour days. No effort will be made by the Frolic to get further north than St. Johns to make any Inquiry about the Polaris, as the Frolic is not a vessel suited for such an expedition; be ing a side wheeler and made of Iron she would soon be crushed by the ice. As stated in the Star of yesterday the Secretary will send out a vessel later In the summer to look for the Po laris should she not be heard from before that time: but the vessel selected for that expedition will be a small wooden one strengthened for the expedition.

United States Marshal Packard telegraphs trom New Orleans, under date of May p> as follows: "City perfectly quiet.

Mohun A Co.J The history of the brilliant campaign cf our troops under Taylor and Scott in the war with Mtxico will always be one of the most fasci nating pages of American history, both because Oi the t ashing bravery displayed in the contests and the romantic daring, rivalling that of Oortoc and Pizarro, that took our little army into the very heart of Mexico, under a broiling sun and through a plague-infested district, fighting battles at every step, attacking overwhelming numbers in apparently inaccessible and impreg nable fortresses, and with communications cut oft as they advanced, by swarms of gnerrilas. We have nowhere seen the exciting history ot this wonderful contest so well told, on the whole, as in this book of General Kenly*s.

Not 80 Bad a Bargain A ftkr All?Two small, rocky Islands in the Bebring sea, says the London Globe, will soon hare paid back to the United States Treasury the whole sum ex pended upon the purchase of Alaska. When

the cessicu ot this territory was granted by Rus sia, people smiled at the bargain made by the A met loans. It was asserted that Yankee shrewdness had deserted Mr. Seward in the matter. He knew better, and did not buy with his eyes shut. St. Paul's and St. George's is lands, belonging to the Aleutian chain, have since been Teased to the Alaska Commercial company for seal fishing at a yearly rental of t.15,000. A tax of nearly three dollars on each fur seal skin taken and shipped from the island is also imposed. As 100,000 skins are exported vcarlv now to San Francisco and New York, a fruitful source of revenue is obtained from these two barren rocks. This territorial enter prise of the United States is therefore a great success, and will probable help to develop the idea so rapidly growing in America that colo nial possessions are useful from many natural l>ointsof view. Terrible Explosion in a Coal Minb? Over forty Mien Jmprituned in a Burning Mine.? A terrible explosion occurred in the Drummond colliery, Plcton county, Nova Sootla, Monday afternoon.

The greatest excitement prevailed above ground after the fearful occurrence, and crowds ot poo dle for miles around came rushing to the set ue of the disaster, and some of the scenes are de scribed by an eye-witness as harrowing beyond description. Mothers, wives, sisters and chil dren crowded around the burning mine, mourn ing the fate of those below, their heartrending cries being heard for a long distance.

Captain Hasbrouck thinks the Modocs have m. ammunition except what they have remaining in their pouches, as they lost their entire reserve ol ammunition in the fight. Captain Jack has but seven animals with him. He took his position on the Held in as lordly a manner as it he had been a brigadier general. It was a grand mistake of the* Mod&s, who u??btod"y throught they could stampede this force as they bad stampeded others, but they met with the It "thi 2,,rin/ Indians.

I concluded, inasmuch u I intended to lo cate somewhere permanently, and location bting of much im|?orUncf, to w the much vaunted Tex** and Pacific railway country in northern Teiu, *0 I diverged Iwb the route I h?d planned and went there. 1 o be brief. I lound it had been more profanely whitewashed with fulsome praise than any por tion of the WeMern Land of Promise I bare ever seen. It in certainly a u???<l agricultural coun ter. Bad plenty of emgrants are going tn to settle ?t. In a ride of a hundred mile*, from IHi.ison to Fort Worth, by wagon, at no time wai> 1 out of night of wagon* laden with families seeking bones in the Lone Star state. A* a confluence of this, the stock ranges* are be coming circumscribed. and stockmen are being i>ut>hed further West, where Uie gentle Indians most do congregate. 1 soon discovered that it was no place for my purpose, retraced my st-'pa. and came to Colorado. Uikinc I?enver my headquarters. I r<*Mttd. First I explored the South Platte valley and the mountain countrv in that latitude. ] round the ranges fair and" ample, but the winter* sometimes very severe. Last winter was the mildest lor many vears.very little snow I ailing; but the preceding one was rigorous, and proved disastrous to stock men in some instances. Next 1 took in the ccuntrv about l?enver, west and east, for a distance of'about one hnn<ired miles. To the < astw ard I found there was a lack of water, while to the westward, in the mountain districts, two much snow usually falls to admit of winter gracing. Satisfying myself that 1 had as yet lound bo place superior or equal to Kl Paso. Texas, 1 came to Pueblo and Vgan skirmiabing thereabout. I -00n discovered one thing, namely, that the climate here is aiach more genial "than the difference in latitude be tween B*blo and Denver would seem to indi cate. According to all accounts the winter jnat passed must have been truly delightful?too much so, some said, for the moisture, which makes grass, coming mainly from snow, tbev feared stock might not do well. But they were mistaken, fgr within the past month there have been several mild snow falls, melting In a few hours, and the grass is now fine. The prospect for stock was never better. Making good use of mv tongne and eyes, I , soon made the discovery that the nearer the mountains one lives the better his range, for | two reasons-he has letter shelter and wore and earlier grass, tor helms more moisture to make I it. Hiding over the different ranges, 1 saw tha' the stock near the mountains wa? in the best condition, so I naturally sought a ranch in that ? localitv. . , . _ . . I ha?1 not been lone in Colorado before I made the discovery that the present is no tiiue to touch sheep." Keasou: so many are going lute the business that sheep are verv high; for in stance. ?2 50 to for commou Mexicans. The j demand tor sheep in Mexico during the past si* , mouths has advanced the price there in alout 1 the same proportion. On the other hand, cat tle are low. Mr philosophv teaches me to buy a thing when (t's "down,'' and sell when its "np." I therefore became conviuced that cat tle for present puri-oses ottered the l?est margin. Chant lug one day to ride out it the direction of the Spanish Peaks, 1 came upon a spot the peculiar beauty of which captivated me. I found it was a stock ranch ana about to be sold at forced sale. Hiding over the range, I found it excellent and ample, embracing a scoj.e of country twentv-five miles in area, being well sheltered by blurts and ptnon and cedar gro ves, the water pure, sparkling, melted snow trom ' Old Ba'.dv," the highest peak of thetireen ham range "seven miles away. Making further inquiries, I learned that it was stocked with three hundred Lead of American and half breed cattle, fine bulls, et cetera, having three hundred and twenty acres of land, covering a frontage of two miles, one mile on the (irinerus and one mile on the Green ham, one hundred acres arable with good crops already in, comfortable log cabin with three rooms, f arm implement* and stock houses, al! com plete. 1 w % not long in reaching the convic tion that it was the fineet stock ranch 1 had ever seen, and ottered at a bargain. The next thing was to convince some one else, or others, of the fact, so that, they joiuing me, we might be able to twimm. About this time three young bucks from Pennsylvania, whose acquaintance I had formed in Philadelphia, came on, and no sooner saw than they were conquered. To be brief, we soon clcsed the bargain, and have been, lo these three days, installed in the " Grineros It a ncli," for such we have christened it. One great advantage of this ranch Is that it can be made self-sustaining; that Is, what we produce will pav all expenses. All theyarties associated with 'me are workers; two of them from two of the beat families 1b Lancaster county, Pa., and the other a good fellow, too. The location is beautifBl. indeed. Our cabin is situated In the center of a valley about two miles in width. A canal brings to our door the limpid snow waters of the mountains. All around us are rock-ribbed and cedar-created '< bluffs," which, though mountains themselves, are still so pigmy- like beside their cloud-clapped neighbor that thev are deemed unworthy of the name. In our fiont, to the westward, towers Old Baldy, hoary with snow almost any mouth through all the year. Wc are twenty-six miles southwest of Pueblo near enough to a railroad. The surrounding country is essentially a pastoral one, and benoe cannot be squatted upon by small larmere, those terrors of stockmen in all countries. No matter bow fortunate we niay be, or how large our herds tnav become, we will have range enough. It Is adapted to sheep equally aa well as to cattle, so that, if we care to launch out lu that directioB when the proper time comes, we can do so. ? * ? Southern Colorado is destined to become tkt stock region of the west. It la a long way ahead of Texas. Texans admit this, and are locating here permanent! v, transferring their herds at great expense. It is central, and can avail It self of all markets. * * * Tell there at* pleaty of bear, deer, elk, and fish within a day's ride of our ranche. I know it will gladden his heart. ? ? ? William E.
