The verger stalke in stiff importance o'er The hollow, deep and stran-e responding stones; He stanus with lifted statt unchiu before The forms that once had crush'd or fashion'd thrones, And coldly points you out the coffin'd bones: 31e stands composed where armies coula not stand A little time before. * * * The hand disowns The idle sword, and njw instead the gran ι Aud golaen cross makes sign and takes austere com mand. —April Galaxy. SELECTED STOIiY. The Lost Cabin. 1 had the "blues." For already I had be come satislied that the young metropolis ot the Northwest, which Hope, with the typi cal vermilion linger, had pointed out to me as the city among ten thousand where crowd ing cases aud flowing tees would overwhelm Ihe ambitious disciple οΓ Blackstone, had really more "law" tnan it could conveuitntly carry with any prospect ot' municipal pro gress. Had every inhabitant of the place given himself up entirely to the acrimonious and implacable litigation, tbe ielicitous equi poise of demand and supply would uot yet have been restored ; on the contrary, a gaunt forest of legal "limbs" would have remained idle and unappropriated—waviug bleakly in the winter of inevitable decay. A. "lieart ot oak," supposing it to have been in the law business, could not, under these circum stances, have been joyously imponderable; aud it was no wouder that my own, being ot very common timber, weighed heavily on this April night,· aud dragged me down into fathomless depths of despondency. What Was I to do when the lew hundred dollars brought with me had wasted utterly away ? The interrogatory rose upon me agaiu aud again with a sphinx like empuasis that was appalling. While amusing myself with rev eries o. tnis cheerful nature, some one rapped at my office door aud in response to my '"come in," not uttered in .the gentlest of tones, a tail young man, of dark complexion, and habited in a suit of heavy brown cloth, en ered. I recognized him, alter the usual salutations had passed, as a person who had for RPVPlal t"-·".· - «- - · — — -vvu efjuutiiiug tiL my iiu tel, the C house. Taking the chair I proffered, he sealed himself near the stove, aud, bendiug upou me from under a pair oi heavy, black eyebrows a glance, glittering and Keen with scrutiny, said: "It's a nasty night A BBi| »«' _ ' β ιυϊ AJWUh» "it is, indeed," I rep'.ied, stopping to re plenish the stove; "aud you seem to have had the benefit of it.'' "Yes, I bad some difficulty in finding your office—aud that reminds me that I did not come here to discuss tiie weather, but to talk business." Ue Lieut his head for a moment, as if to re He-t, and I fixed myself in an attiiude of re spectful attention, my first tee being the idea -which was uppermost in my mind. "Are you satisfied witnthis?" and as he spoke he waved Uis hand satirically toward the single Falstaffian column of law-books, largely recruited trom the patent-office de partment, on a shelf against the wall oppo site. 1 smiled, and without waiting for farther answer, he proceeded. "It you succeed at all in the practice of the law in Portland, it will be after years of patient, persistent labor and a lite of hideous economy and privation. I believe that you realize this yourself, and tor that reason I come here to shate with you a valuable secret and to solicit your assistance in a project which. If successfully prosecuted, will enrich us both." Δ suspicion of double-barreled burglary flat hed across me, and I sup; ose he must have seen something of the kind In my face, for he resumed immediately, with an impa tient gesture, "Nay, it is honorable; and all I ask you in return for the confidence I am about to repose in you, is a pledge of secrecy in the event that you do not join me in the project to which I have alluded." Having received every assurance of good faith on my part, he drew his chair closer to mine, and then looking toward the door, sug gested that I had better 1 ick it. I got up to attend to that, and when I resumed my seat beside him, he had lighted a rigar, and was evidently going to be comfoi table. lie held hie cigar-case toward uie, and asked : ' Did you ever hear the story of the Lost Cabin?" I never had. "No? 1 will tell it to you. In the spring of 185—, while the southern bolder of Ore gon was ringing with the battles of that mem orable war between the heroic settlers of the Territory and the Shasta and Kojrue river In dians, two brothers by the name of Wilson— James and Henry—arrived at Jacksonville, and getting together a small party of hardy and experienced miners, set out, fully armed, to prospect for gold along the rivers and among the broken ranges of mouutains south ward of that then prosperous mining town. The party had been out lor several weeks, meeting w th but little succe-js, and had just lost one of tbeir number in a skirmish with the Iudians, when a council was called, and all but the Wilson brothers concurred in the opinion that it was hest to ieturn to Jackson ville and wait for the conclusion of the war. "The Wilsons were of a haughty, obsti nate spirit, thorough in mountain craft, and brave to recklessness. With tbeui daring was a habit, and danger a luxury, and they held out against the entreaties of their more prudent comrades, until it was agreed, finally, tuat they should have the greater part of the provisions, ammun.tion, etc., and continue iu their search, while the oth ers would retrace their steps by the shortest and safest route. On the morning of parting, James Wilson rose in bis stirrups, and swinging his rifle alott with an arm splendidly muscular, ex claimed: "Good-bye, boysl and good luck to you, but wc can t go lack. There is gold somewhere yonder behind that smoky line of mountains, and we are going to dig it out, though all the red-skins of the wilderness stand guard over it. We'll come back rich ! as kings, boys! or leave our bones to bleach α ο nlnpirtiio Kottln t'» This high speech fired the hearts of the re treating party for a moment, and some of them turned, as though they, too, would faiu peril their lives for th«t without which life is more bitter than death ; but the momentary flash of heroism went dowi>, and. shaking their heads in denial, they went away, shout ing hack rude words of coeer. "They never met again. The main division reacue · Jacksonville alter many days of wearisome and perilous travel, and waiting In ▼ain through lengthening months for some tidings of the Wilsons. Their story is sealed to all, save me. I awe my own knowledge of their future progress and final fat ·. to the fact that we were cousins and confidential friends. With this word of explanation I will give you to much of the history of the brot jers as came to me in the letters of James, written at San Francisco in the year 1859. I have them here"—and, as he talked, he drew forth a packet of perhaps a dozen letters, much worn, creased and soiled, and held them in his hand—"but have no need to recur t·) them, as I have read them many times. "Well, from the point of separation the Wilsons continued in a southeasterly direc tion. They at first trave.ed with every pre caution against surprise, but finally relaxed their vigilance, as they were seemingly be yond the range of the hostile tribes. "At last they'reached a green and narrow valley, walled in by precipitous mountains, around which meandered, over and among bowlders of richly-colorad rock and across beds of smooth and shining pebbles, the lim pid waters of a snow fed stream, Here they determined to rest and recruit themselves an l their jaded aulmals, while they leisurely and thoroughly prospected for gold the region ira · mediate'y about them. "Desiring to remain in the valley for some time, they concluded to put up a rude log cabin, which would protect their camp equip age, and, pierct-d with loop-holes, fort-fashion would serve as a defense in case of an Indian attaek. "On the morning after theirarrival Henry began to cut timber, out of which to con struct the temporary home and fortress; while Jame* went forth, gun in hand, to re plenish their iinpover'sned larder. Abont ten o'clock he killed a deer which he shoul dered and started for camp. He reached the little stream, perspiring and thirsty, for the day ww warm, and threw his limp burden down upon a pebbly bar while he stooped to get a drink. •'No sooner had bis lips touched tbe water ttan his eye was a/rested by the sparkle of er^el 11 ,objects Mattered among the the alert- ^ miner Is ever on pellucid hi^ hand int° .the gravel for exam\naUo.w 'orth a handful of '•It was gold 1" n· •'Yes, there It was, in cou™ and lumps—richer than * dream? He ^drop- 1 ped suddenly to examine the bar on which he stood. It, too, was gorged with the glitter ing metal, and he rose with a whoop of joy tha. made the woods echo and brought Hen ry running to the spot, for he had heard it, and recognized his brother's voice on the other side of the little valley. You can imag ine their ecstasy. They had known poverty all their li/es, and there before them was wealth, sudden, splendid, exhaustless. But I must not linger. Working together they finished the cabin that day, and the next be gan to gather the gold. The labor was not great, and within tAO weeks' time they had h· aped together a marvelous quantity of it, and began to contemplate a return. '"Life was now piecious, and,after thinking it over and weighing the chances for and against the practicability of getting back un molested, they were convinced that it w s best to remain where they were until the volunteer forces under General Lane, which they knew were on their way, had reached the hostile country and relieved the hard paths of nuuntaiu travel from the wily foe that lurked upon every step. Having made an excavation iu the center of their cabin floor, they lined it carefully with rock, and, in the vault thus formed, deposited their trea sure, tied up in bags of dried and undressed deerskin. This was done in case an attack Irom tlie ludiaus should compel theiii to flee, when, of course, it woukl he impossible to carry the heavy metal. But no attack was made, and, after the lapse of several weeks, they arose one morn ing aud agreed that it was time to be upon the homeward trail. The sheeny fo-est leaves waved in the soft winds ot the morning, and the fresh air was musical with the songs of birds, as, fully aimed, they strode forth spirit edly to bring in their horses, which bad grown fat and vigorous upon the bountiful pasture. ι ne canin stood near the stream, in the edtre of the wood, and when they ha 1 ap proached to within forty yards of it, sudden ly a score of rifles clashed upon tliem from the bank, followed by the terrible war-cry of the Snastas. Henry, who it hanpened was in fiont of James, leading two ot the horses, sank with a deadly groan,his horses rearing and falling at the same time. The Indians burst from their cover aud sprang forward with all the echoes of pandemonium. James emptied his rifle with fatal aim among them, and drew his re volver. The Indians knew the kind of music they had to face, and having neglected to re load, dashed back to the cover of the bank. The resolute miner saw his salvation in this movement, and, hastily tossing a noose-halter over the head of the only horse that remained uninj αγ d, leaped upon his back, aud was out of immediate danger in an iustant—career ing down the valley with the scattering shots of the enemy singing over his head. The war party being afoot, he was not followed, and finally reached the frontier settlements, after a jaurney of incredible hardship. As the Ind:an war continued without abate ment, he took passage for San, in order to obtain medical advice in regard to his health, which exposure aud privation had badly broken. Then it was that he began the correspondence with me. I was in Chica go at the time. Unexpectedly receiving news of his death in the fall of 1859,1 hastened to San Francis co, aud received the hands of his land lord a little bundle of papers, among which I found this. Bead it; no explanation is re * He handed me a folded sheet of paper, on which a letter had been begun, in a cramped, ungainly, bût stiil legible hand. Here it is : San Fk\ncibco, Cal., Oct. 26., 1859. Deab CVusin : I had hoped to see you here before this, but the end has come sooner than I expected. I dreamed ol that cabin, in the wilds of Oregon, last night, and saw poor Harry fall again before the cowardly shots of those skulking Shastas; *nd I think it is nearly over. I must write that I intend ed to have spoken, and endeavor to give you such directions as will enable ycu to tind the cabin, for you must find it, Theodore, aud enjoy its hidden gold. The first part ot your ci purse is plain enough; start from Jackson ville and keep the California road ior— Here the hand of death stayed the revelat ing pen, and there remained only a black and shapeless ink-blot, as a fit emblem of the mystery that wrapped the whereabouts of the lost cabin. I turned from the paper and looked at Harper—for such was the name by which he had introduced himself to me. "That is all I know about it," said he. "and here is "iny proposition ; let us jointly purchase an cutfit, and spend the summer in the mountains of Southern Oregon. With the clew we have, I verily believe that we shall find the cabin." "I am with you," and I ga?e him a stead fast grip. Harper flushed with pleasure at the prompt and hearty acquiesence, and we sat talking over the deta Is of our expedition uutil the gray eye of dawn looked iu, and with a cold and unsympathizing stare, admonished us that our sitting had been unnaturally pro longed It was the middle of May, when deeming the southern mountains clear of snow, and the rivers passable, our final preparations were completed, and we were ready for the road. My books—consisting of a little law, in calf, and much patent-office, in muslin—were consigned to a common grave in a dry-gocds box, and the key of the office gracefully re signed to its owner. We had a saddle-horse apiece, two pack animals, and provisions for six months. After several days of uneventtul travel we reached Jacksonville. This point was the beginning and the end of the written in structions of James Wilson; and we looked wonderinglv toward the south, where a wil derness of"mountains, vales and livers— much of it yet uutrodden by the foot of civ ilized man—stretched away under the serene sky. There was the ink-blot of the unfinished letter. We were not to be frowned back, however, by the difficulties which stood in our way, and, after a day's rest, we again took the California road, with the intention of follow ing it for one day longer. This brought us to a point where, in all probability, the party of prospectors, headed by the Wilsons, had borne off from the beat en track into the chartless regions of the southeast. Even adopting this general direction as the axis of exploration, the field to be surveyed was hopelessly wide. The Wilson party un doubtedly made a considerable departure from their intended course, in order to avoid the actual theater of the Indian war; but, with this solitary concession to prudence, must have sought to reach that portion of fhe country which both rumor and the geo logical outlines of the earth's surface indi cated as gold-bearing. Careful inquiry had put us in possession ot these latter facts, and we, too, turned to the southeast, but at no great angle from the stag;· route Our progress was slow, tortuous, and at times unutterably difficult. Hewing a trail through woven thickets, scrambling over miles of fallen timber, lost in the twilight of labyrinthian cauons, straining toward the summit of some rocky divide—here the sum mer sunshine burned like a flame—acn ss the turbulent rivers, and by the still margins of unknown Iftcps- whom iv>« e » α ·"■» Duau owed themselves in sombre solitude, what a road to fortune 1 We were generously armed, and had no great fear of personal ranger, for the fierce tribes that had formerly hung upon the foot steps of the hunter and gold-digger here, and had disputed the encroachments of civiliza tion in the bright valleys far out to our right, had "ceased from troubling," long since, and were agriculturally "at rest" upon gjvern ment reserves. We knew, however, that a fe\r unmanage able jands had refused to accept the arbitra ment of Christian rifles, and were st:ll abroad somewhere—in their native haunts—from Klamath to the sea—committing theft, arson, and an occasi mal murder. But our hearts were fired by "the accursed lust for gold," and we were uot to be de terred by idle fears. We were possessed of a spirit that toil could not exorcise, nor peril quell. Weary weeks had elapsed, when, one day, we reached the base ot a precipitous chain of mountains trending westward, and directly in our course. Λ few miles to our lett we fouud an accessible pass ; but, surveying the range with our glass for a great distance on eith îr side, could see no other depression in it" clear-cut hue. This, then, was the ouly gateway to the souti eastern coun'ry beyond, and through it the Wilson party must have passed, without a doubt. At the entrance of the pa ss we found the dim vestiges of a camp-fire, and began to hope that we were right. Further on we found where an ax had been used here and there, and knew that we were in the footsteps of white men. Wa« it the Wilson trMl ( James Wilson, in his letters to Harper, had spoken of a loity rock, bearing a rude re semblance to an hour glass, at the base of which was a mineral spring. It was there that the separation had cccurred^and the main party turned back. The western peaks were crowned with sunset gold, and our d iy s maich was nearly done, when, unexpectedly, we halted before a lofty bowlder, shaped like an hour-glass ; and at its base, sta ning the rock over which it flowed, we found a spring bttter with mineral constituents. By that token ;he battle was half won, and dismountiug, we unpacked our ti.ed and disspirited horses, and went into camp for two days, in order to gather strength for the Snal struggle. Then we were again in the laddie, with our faces still to the southeast, uid toiling on. We were in the region of 'olcanic agonies—of fierce upheavals and 1 >va looJs. Interminable difficulties rose before is, but they were met with heroic resolution, ,nd finally overcome. Harperbecamemoody nd abstracted ; and the stress of sustained tixiety had so worn upon my spirit that ■ve" in slumber the troubles of the day were epeated. The boundary between my eleep ng and waking thoughts ceased to be clearly lefined, I think, and this abnormal condition of the mind may account for what is other wise inexplicable in what I aoi about to re late. We had encamped for the night, and it was near sunset. Harper, overcome by fatigue, lay asleep, with hi j head upon a roll of blank ets. For the hundredth time I had drawn the unfinished letter ftom my pocket, and set with my back against the tree.pen-iMng^ it dreamily—with a lead pencil, which had fal len out in getting the letter, also in my hand. I remember wishing thi.t some spirit-hand would seize the pencil and complete the let ter, when, to my infinite surprise a shadow like that of a sudden twilight, iell upon all things around. I was somehow conscious of a preternatural presence, and lookiug up, be held, immediately immediately in front of me, a man, or a shadow of a man, tall and mus cular, with a brown face and bushy beard. He wore a miner's gray flannel shirt—with out a coat—and had a revolver belted to his side. I seemed to be utterly without the power of Speech or motion, and looked into the sad and sympathetic eyes he turned upon me with a sense of awful fascination. I could see Harper dimly through the semi-darkness but the quiet of slumber still lay upon his' weary face. Then night seemea to close down, and I awose with a start to find that the evening had advanced, and that my com panion was kindlng.a fire. I turned to look tor the paper and found it at the fi-.ot of the tree against which I had recliued ; but what did I see? On the blank space, below the ink-blotto which I had reierred, was a rude drawing in pencil! It seemed to rep.esent two rauges of inounrains, inteisecting each other at right angles. In the centre of the rectangular space on the lower side was a small diagram, resembling the Urge one in shape. 1 took it to the lire-light for a closer examination ; it was the Representation of a miner's pick. Who bad done this, and what could it mean? Was it the idle and unmeaning tracery of my own nuconscious hand, or was it the effort of some superior power to direct us in the search tor the lost cabin? At all eveats, I could make nothing of the myster. ous symbolism befor me—pregnant though it might be with previous revelations—and thought best not to msntion the circumstance to Harper. In the afternoon of the next day we were at the foot of another mountain wall, spiked with the gray shafts of fite-scathed firs, and with here and there a rocky peak towering high in the smoke-tinged atmosphere.— Through a system of cai.ons hewn in these mighty rocks we penetrated the range, and halted tor the night upon an open spot where grass was abundant, and after refreshment forgot in the narcotic languor^ of the pipe all physical weakness and mental strain. Un the morning following we climbed a lofty eminf nee that shot into the sky like the spire of some Titanic temple, and with our telescopes swept the unknown country before us, serene and beautiful under the flattering tints of a summer sun. To the right, and running nearly north and south, lay another range of mountains intersecting at right an gles that through which we were passing— the drawing below th<i ink-blot 1 There, up on the great face of nature, was the realiza tion of the pencil-sketch ; and its symbolism was as clear as light; away in that central re gion to the south, the mystic emblem of the pick marked the locality of the va alt of goldl With the agitation consequent of so sudden a revelation, I turned toward Harper, with mis micipiecuLiuu υι tue scuti χ wiciι ur vulged ; and he, too, was stirred to the in rnast depths of his imaginative nature. Ou—on we went, in a dream ot wonder and future wealth, and nothing impe.'ed our progress now, until, at last, we enlered a nar row valley, walled in by preci'jitous moun tains, and bordered on each side by a beauti ful stream. We knew that we were upon sa cred ground; and, along the shadowy fringe cf the forest, where the fretted waters sang a barbaric tune, we rode, silently ae specters. A resistless magnetism drew us on, and not a word was spoken. Our very heart-strings might have snapped with cheir terrible ten sion. We turned a projecting angle of the wood, and a square, black object was before us. We had found the Lost Cabin I nothing now but au empty pen of scorched and biack ene 1 logs. I distaigled a pick from one of our packs, and stepped with,η the inc'osure. it, too, was choked with weeds ; and. bending them aside, I saw grinning upon us in its hideous solitude, a human skull ! Poor Harry 1 The Indians had intended that the cabin should be his funeral pyre, but only the lighter ma terials of the roof had ignited, and the green logs had refused to burn. I struck the pick iut ■ the ground near the center of the cabin. Once more I litled it, and drove the long wedge of iron to the handle in the loose soil. The point fastened in some tou°h substance; and. at the same instant, Harpei·, uttering a cry of mortal anguish fell heavily at my feet, as a rifle-shot roared in my ear—and I drop ped into oblivion. Then it was night—a long, starless, and dreamless night of clo..ded intellect and slumbering soul. When the cunning forces of nature had repaired tbe fragile structure, and the dawn of reason came, they were tell ing the story of a stage driver on the Oregon and California route, who, rainy months be fore, had captured a nude sun-bronzed wild man—gibberinglik^amonke' ,but harmless as a baby—near the.bouudary line, and had sent him north to Portland. It was the story of my rescue from the southern -aids. For the rest, Harper must have fallen by the accidental disch irge of his own rifle ; and my mind, struugby high excitement of the search, weakened by tbe despotism of one absorbing idea, and dazed by the apparent interposition of the supernatural, had given way under the shock, and the mere instincts of the animal nature had provided me with sustenance, and prolonged my life.—Overland Monthly.
