Weather. . icbruary, in this region, hitherto, has worn the garb of winter, carrying out the fashions to the extrtme-'-snow cov ering our prairies, ice immensely thick the rivers, and lately, for two or three days, a storm from' tho north has added Jauch to the already cold times. Prifts sf snow are formed into fine conic heaps And banks of the same with curved feath er edo of finest texture, defying imita tion by the art of man; and, it seems that winter, in order to give us a token as a remembrancer, before taking its fin J departure has kindly exerted itself to produce so much seasonable magnifi cence.

Drove in," or rather, got drove in, at Read's Ranche No. 1,, where we took a thaw oat, and partook of the landlord's generous hospitality, only to be worse frosen next day but finally reached "the bridge," and put up at Mo Noil's, who took kindly cure of our crea ture wants, and brought us again to life. Weather appearing better, nut dny we plurgod through the untrodden snow, but could not reach that scaly town of Fremont, where thero are but three per sons of enough intelligence to road news pnpers, and tho reigning merchant cr t't get enough business ta advertise. Still, ther was a "lot" in the place who keeps a hotel and a good bouse; "Nye," on (ho eoroer -cut we could not make it, and had to take oar chances in a log cabin where the wind whistled through the chinks as if angered at the attempted ob structions. The kindness of the occu pants made same amend, however, for the suffering. Ntxt day, met many teams, and fuund a slight track, made a point above Nor'h Bend, nud packed our selves with a lot of dead-tuadt (pork), in a house occupied and owned by a pair of ''lone men"--lpt "four in a bed and two in the middle," or rather, tried to. Next day, made a point within eighteen miles of Columbus, and put np at Thom as', a whole-souled and obliging Scotch- er, whose excellent fauily made us as comfortable as possible for several days whilst the storm spent tho weight of U fury. Luckily, we escaped without maiming by frost, yet this was wore than "our boys" did, for their feet ahowcg; the great danger of tijkintfej prairie storms. Afcfvainly waiting some days lot fa vorable indication!), without success, I took the stage for Columbus, leaving the teams to get bock to tho rivei. The ho tel at Culumbus is well conducted, and is a comfortable and pleasant home for the traveler. Ilere 1 learned of a train of freight having started from PlaUs mouth for Denver, on the south side; finding the distance too great between stations, that lour horses were frosen to death, and two men very nearly so. What remained of tho U&ia eauta otot to this side. ' We also learned that two men named Peter Marie and William Thomas came near perishing on the worst night or tne storm. They came to a place on the Fapplllon, called "Tay lor's," and kept by a pair of selfish, heartless creatures! who would neither sell these men hay for their stock, nor let then tie to the fence, and sleep in the shelter of the house; tho consequence was, in th endeavor to reach itced's, on Spring Creek, both were badly frosen. I have heard mush of these "Taylors" and they seem to be very exacting, selfish, and even barbarous and unfeeliag. One thing is certain they are very odious to travelers, and get no customers when people can avoid it. to coi, After spending a week very cemforta bly with Mrs. Baker, at Columbus I was favored with a tleigh-ride, In a regular old fulionod cutter, with Mr. McUvath, cf Omaha, and enjoyed the twenty mires on th ice very much, not having got in even once, arriving at Genoa in good tiia to look for supper, etc. was com- fortably cared for by friend Hudson k- k - : i . . ti a wurumg, jju tisji io too nescrv aUon-rHjfned with lioilins, who ha a choice stock of Indian mereltandii, and is a true type of an enterprisinr, dashing kind of Wcftern business' man.

There is frequent ly somo considerable rivalry between the several bands, in fighting, hauling aud other sports, end not unfrequently one baud commit theft upon th effects cf another. HORSES.

Very frequ-nU ly they have more horses thun the pop ulation of tho tribe will number. Tne horses arc small, and generally live out upon tho dry grass all winter ; when snows are so deep as 10 aisaoie mem from getting the gran, Cottonwood trees are cut down and the horses subsist up on the bark. Very few of thend appre ciate the value or use of corn, ond will refute to oat it when it is put before them. They valuo their aorses at from 30 to $60.

'1 he pest route bill from the House, with tho overland mail amendment was taken up. Mr. iiale was in favor of the overland maij, but thought if this route was adopt cJ, la'.tji'heid 1 cute ought to bo suspen ded. . The bill was ordered printed, and post pano'l. The bill to organize a government for Iddhn, was taken up, and udjourned. Iloisx, r eb. 2d. Mr. Sherman called up tbe bill authorising the i'residmit nt uny time before the first of July, to bor row on the creJit of tho United St to not exceeding $25,300,000 ; certificates to l issued tor not less than $1,000 cou pons payable semi-annually with inter eit, and'tbo faith o the United States to be pledged for the payment yf ii. teres t and principal. Mr. Phelps offered a substitute that the third scctiou of ihu act of J-lo, lbjO, providing for the redemption of iho Treasury notes, b n;:di&ed so as to em power tne Secretary of tbe Treasury to uogoiiatc the balance of the loan not la ken under that net on the most favorable terms, instead of restriciing negotiations of the loan ut not less than pav, and af ter notice of ten inst. ad of thirty day.

Mr. Sherman approved the amendment The loan proposed was $25,000,000. Ho supposed it would rettle up the accounts ol Hits Aaminisiration; as mere wus bo money and little revenue, they would be obliged to resort to the credit of the Gov ernment. Mr. Hibdman offered the pro iso that no part of the loan shoulabo used to maintain forces, to n.aku war on States which may have seceded. Mr. Shaman refused any such amend ment. Mr. Garnett, considering that the Mor ril tu riff bill cravidefur a loan, of twen ty- one millions, b considered the bill designed for wur purpose.

He ctr.tes that he regarded theso proposiuont ns foolish and criminal, ond believed they had lately been abandoned, and all efforts concentrated toward separate Etato ac tion, which bo justified and Approved.
