One gets up in the morning feeling a? though a champagne cocktail had been hyper dermically injected into his veins (or in some other my>terious way administered) in the latt moments ot? his dreamless slejp, so intoxi cated is be with pleasurable emotions. His brain is clear, active, spirits elastic ami ex uberant, the mysterious luff lenee infecting the body and inducing a strung desire to run, leap, shout, sing, eat? \es, mythiug and everything beiore him. lie has no dit>(?osi tion "to grumble because his st~ak is not done to a turn, his rolls too hot or not hot enough, or his coft'ec cold (if such should be the case,) but assaults a great slice of salt bh.on and tats it with a relish, (a "hing, by the wav. I never thought possible by any one' who had tasted other meats,) stows'away hall a dozen tortill'U, baked in grease, and swallows two cups oi black boiled coffee, without milk or sugar, enjoying all far more. I'll wager a steer, than any of "you all" do your dainty breakfast* at the top of the season. The grand old mountains, almost at our door, have a thousand different phases?now rising clear-cut against the sky, every crag and gorge and tree distinctly visible; now seeming t art tier off in the hazier atmosphere, which betoken* a storm, the rocky angles and abrupt spurs toned down into a mass ot iron gray, piled nigh up to ward the heavens; and now halt shrouded in great banks of fleecy clouds, their topmost peaks thrusting their heads to the empyrean, hoary with the snows of six thousand winters, (m >re or less.) A little green valley takes its tortu.>u? way towards the foothills, watered by a snow fed mountain stream that washes the grassy slopes of our lawn with its limpid waters. On every hand are shrub-fringed hills, verdant with' the varied green of the pine, the pinon and the cedar, and tiecked with wild ffowerc, bands of listless cattle and herds of timid deer, ever scenting danger, and off like the wind, ere vou can bone to bring them within ritle range. How you like 'im, maybe? It is all true, but the deer, and they are antelope, and there are none of them just about here, but plenty of them thirtv-five miles away, with buffalo in'the season within fifty miles?near enough, for they play the very devil with a stock range. Hut come and see for yourself. * * * I have a letter from Mr , of the Pension office, saying he and Mr. would like to invest 91,000 in sheep (on shares) here. I have advised him to put his money into cattle, whirn are low, and hold them for a ri?e in beef and a fall in sheep; then, if deemed advisable, sell the former and invest in the latter?May at the end of the year. Cattle are bound to rise, and *heep prices must topple. The prices at which sheep are held are disproportionate to the price of wool. The result of this state of facts is plain to be seen. * * * * Desirable government land in Colorado is be coming " very few"?fewer every month?but there is no danger of overrunning thit range with stock, for all the water is taken, generally by stock men. # # * Wx.
