A Snake Story, and a Uood One. [Kitract from an occasional Correspondent J As incident occurred on our way to Cincinnati, via Pitsburgh, which cieated great merriment in tho party, at the expenso of our friend II. One night, alter ielantog our limbs at one of the many statious on the route, we discovered that two very mysterious looking strut. gers were added to our company. Dressed in the garb f backwoodsmen, with their ritles by their tides, their appearance excited the most unpleasant reflections, to us who hud never travel ed, which, together with the i inconvenience attendaut on " twelvo inside," suggested tha in<-o of rl.?,i?r.?- ....-.,1 u . .uiuuici ?wu. i nil pnill was strongly advocated by il., who declared he woul.l not proceed w ith such " highwaymen," but after an inefl'ectual attempt to procure auy other couveyauce, wo re signed ourselves to the forco ol rircuinsluncea, and wrapped our robes about us, preparing for ttie departure. H. roluctantly took trio teat between the. strangers, when ha discovered thoy had a box of rather strange dimensions of w hich they took especial earn, and by u remark which was made, apparently not designed lor out ear, we learned it contained snakes. H. supposing the hunters had some enormous specimens I of the rattlesnakes designed for exhibition at Cincinnati, made some anxious enquiries as to their being properly secured, lie , to which, having received evasive and very unsatisfactory replies, his fancy pictured the most un pleasant associations, and the most terrible remits. The idea that he should rind himself encoded within the folds of so venomous and disgusting a reptile, was horrible?the darkness of the night gave power to his imagination, and the acts of his lite? tne firesides he had left?the friends with whom ho had parted, perhaps for the last time, minglod in strange confusion with prescriptions, panaceas, and loathsome death. Often he resolved to make known to his drowsy party, his fearful misgivings, but the fear that we should not sympathise in his intense anxiety, and that his allegations would be answered with n laugh, deterred him. | At length, ovoi|>owercd bv luliguu. and the excitement of ho scene, he tell asleep ?but the same horrible dre.irn putsueil him, and as tho "brake" was applied in descending the mountain, and as its hissing sound broko upon his ears, he awoke appalled with the idea that his woist fears were luily realized, and in the phrenzy of despair, he sprung liom his seat, and at the lop ot his lungs,cried out ' Stranger ! stranger! vour d?J snakes nr.? in,??

It is worthy the attention of persona intending to emigrate thither : ? Ko*r Hall, Aug. 'J, l?lt>.- I am happy of tho opportunity ol sending to you some further intorniatiun with regard to our teuious trip to Oregon. Wo arrived at this placo (Kort Hall) yesterday, which is situated in a beautiful plain on Snake river, an I is certainly a healthy place, if theie is one in the world. The cuiiositles that are to be stou upon the plains, are enough to compensate me for all my trouble. The soda springs are a cuiiosity Indeed; the water of these spring* tastes a good deal like soda, and boils up like soda when the acid is mixed ; just below these soda spring* is a boiling spring, which comes up through a hole in u rock; it makes a noise like as if it were boiling, and can ha heard a quarter of a mile oil'. The water foams like suds, and la a little above milk warm. " The itulei endenee rock is also an interesting sight; it Is about 1M1 feet high, and covers something near sis acres of ground. There are engraved upon this rock, < between two and threo thousand names ; I left my name on it, July 'Id, 1H4A. If I were te tell you that we crossed lakes of salaratus, you would scarcely believe me, hut i it 1* true ; we travelled over them with our teams, and used it in our bread, and it is as good il riot better than any you buy in tho States.

Who Killed Cock Robin ?Van Rurenism ? Old Bucktaslf?CHntaniani?The Urgency?History of Paititi, <f-c. A* the political year ii fast drawing to a close, when tho curtain that is to hide from public view one of the most prominent actors in tho political drainuofthis State's history, for the last quarter of a century, is about to fill upon the scene of his labors, we cannot do lass than to bid a respectful farewell to the retiring statesman, and to chronicle briefly the events which havo crowded upon the evo of a year pregnant with excitement and contentious strife?events tlint ate clesely allied to the fate of him whose political life ceases with tho lost expiring year. He must be a superficial observer of things who does not discover in tho downfall of a leading and prominent j statesman, some effect upon the deitiuy ol the State or country with which he may be identified, or of whose chain of history lie forms a link; and to the close exnminor into the fate of men and of nations, there is something ? however molanuholy its character may be?something instructive in the final overthrow of a great, proud, and aspiring statesman. Tho true searcher after political knowledge, and the lover of political science, can no where find a wider field for useful research than i in studying tho career of political parties and their leaders, and pursuing them through tho vnrious changes and phases or their existence, either to ultimate success or fitinl disaster; and among modem politicians the fate of but few will furnish a par -llol to that of Silas Wright, in ull that is instructive as example. But ulew short months?a little over two years ago? the name of Silas Wright had the effect of a talismanic charm upon a great and powerful nartv in this Union- n? Baltimore, the highest honors in the gift of the people were thrice tendored him, which "thrice he did reluse." His name, alone, as it was said of King Richard, "was q tower of strength," ami possessed sufficient mngic to make and unmake Presidents; whilo now, oh! fickle poo pie! it could not mako him Governor! "Now lies ho there, And nono so poor to do him rcveronco." What has produced this grent change 1 On what meat hath this our Cato fed, that he hath grown so thin f Many of the causes which contributed to this downfall, lie deeply buried beneath the dark curront oi the political waters, through whose depths 110 unpractised or superficial explorer can penetrate Kqually amusing anil ridiculous nro tho explanations given hy profound political paragrapliists who assume to account for the defeat of Hilas Wright, reminding one of the awkward and laugh ddo reasons which itinerant lecturers upon science and philosophy will sometimes give in attempting to account for causes and eziect s of which they are profound 1) ignorant; or of the verdicts which are sometimes rendered according to"Orownor'u 'quest law" tij>on bodies tbun 1 <l?n f. And really, to read some of the political jouri lis oi the State, one might ho led to suppose that all thoir editors were empannclled as n coroner's ^ury, and were giving their very wise ami learned opinions upon the all-important question of "who kilhwi (lock Kobin!" In order to mako the darkness which surrounds the public mind on this subject still inoro impenetrable in its murkiness, Cato himselr comes forward and casts his dull, gloomy shadow upon us through soma sixtenu or twenty columns ot the Jillai,ia several soporitic articles, purpoitinff to give " the causes and consequoncos of the late defeat," which, together, may be regarded as a sort of valedictory Governor's message, or last dying speech ami confession. That they are the emanations of the prolific and diffusive quill of Governor Wright, they hear the strongest possible internal evidenco ; hut, independent of the uumistakcuble eur-marks which indicate their authorship, the ^l//u< does not deny that they oro the productions of his Herculean labors, although (Tiey have generally been ascribed to him by the public press Tiiase prod actions liuve probably been perused by that portion of the subsci ihers of ths paper in which they uppci.iod who tuko an iutorest in the details of party movements and party manifestoes ; but they have made no inTpiession upon the public mind, and as for any effect ii .. .. iui; ni.ui.i u..ii- (.iuiiiiucu, llll'V migM ai woll never have In on Untied front tho press, for they have lallen literally still-born from it. If it were desired that they shoulJ he rrad, some other mode should have been resorted to for their promulgation. The comptroller, Mr Klagg, who in more directly interested, as far an tho future is concerned, might give us a chanter or two . ou " causes and consequences' in his annual report; or the Attorney General might hove called a ma?e meeting of " lreemtn and wiun-s?us" at New Scotland. and h Id forth upon tho ' cotite<|tteuce*," to him, in his unual elo quent on 1 felicitous manner. As it is, these defences, which are as long as the moral law, aro not as much read and are far U"> heeded than the precepts of that sublime scionco The only way they can ever obtain aay tiling like a lair ai.ui ioc nou, or uu attentive perusal, will be to h*v?them divided in chapters end printed on cotton pocket nan tkercuiefs, liUo moral lessons for tliu young, and distil mt 'l among the using youth* at the district schools, 01 hi* Kxcelleucy might combine thum in one gluiious, *!U| eudou* whole, and issuo them an a Oovernur's mesaaga, in opposition to John Young's inaugural. To bo serious, it will bo conceded, I think, that these article*, by whomever written,have fallen from the press without producing the desiied or uny lav-arable effect? no far as they were intended to explain the causes ol the result of the elections iu this State, thoy have totally failed, fcvideutly written by u strong and embittered partizan, before tho chagrin and disappointment of defeat and tho heated leelings consequent thereon, had passed away, they give the peoplo ol the State about as much insight into the true causes ot the overthrow, as did the , famous "[ironunciuinento" of the redoubtable Ampu.liu to tho astonished and confused people of Mexico, lor l:i* defeat at Monterey.
