"Washington , D. C. , Sept. 8th , ' 84.
Finding the Capital very dullwith the
government distributed around amongst
the various watering places , your correspondent
pendent took a flying vacation last week
and saw more sights than are to he seen
in Washington just now. Everybody
has heard , late years , of Watkins Glen ,
but everybody has not yet seen it ,
though judging from the stream of trav
el in that direction at this season of the
year , everybody will have seen it some
of these days. Having had my interest
aroused by the enthusiastic accounts of
friends who have been there , I conclud
ed I could take just time enough to
make a trip to the new wonder , and I
have never taken a similar journey
which proved more enjoyable or more
replete with interesting features not
even excepting my first trip to Niagara.
Watkins Glen is one oi' the greatest
natural wonders on this continent. I
have spoken of it as a "new" wonder
because its fame has but recently gone
forth , but that great crevice -in those
vast ledges of rocks with its wonderful
caverns and beautiful cascades was prob
ably there when Columbus discovered
America. There is no telling how many
centuries of time the elements have been
employed in working out the grand ag
gregation of wonders and beauties which
are here presented. Fifty years ago ,
only on the more complete maps of New
York could be found the little town of
Jefferson at the head of Seneca Lak.e.
Later the name was changed to Watkins -
kins , and the Northern Central Railway
pushed its line down the Chemung Val
ley , touching the town on its route to
Canandaigua. Soon after this the Glen
began to attract attention , and now pal
atial steamers plow through the blue
lake where , within the memory of man ,
bark canoes tossed on the waves or dart
ed into the shadows of drooping trees.
Groves until lately the dark retreat of
night birds , unvisited save by the hun
ter , are thronged with daily picnics ,
while every jutting point , where once
the timid deer stole to the water's edge ,
is now the site of a summer cottage
or gay with the tents and banners of
The space of this letter is insufficent
for a detailed description of the Glen
or its surroundings , and ] can indulge
iu only a few generalities. This canon
as it may properly be called is one of
the most remarkable yet explored by
man. It is a vertical rift or gorge in a
mountainous bluff , with walls varying in
height from 200 to nearly 400 feet ,
through which rushes a mountain brook
cf purest water ; now roaring and turn-
bling over rocks in foaming cascades ,
again plunging over ledges in beautiful
falls , and anon eddying about in quiet
little lakelets in the deep ravine , down
upon which from high rugged crags or
rustic little bridges the tourist may look
and meet his or her face in the water. 1
The Glen is divided into sections , each
of which is given a distinctive name in
accord with some one of its many
beautiful or strange and wonderful fea
tures. The division at the entrance is
called Glen Alpha , and the section at
the terminus , about three miles above ,
Glen Omega. Near the latter point the
Glen is crossed by the Sj'racuse , Gene
va & Corning Railway , over an iron
bridge at a height of 1C5 feet ten
inches above the water , one of the hand
somest in the state. A short distance
above the entrance to Glen Alpha , at
a height of nearly 100 feet , reached by
a beautiful stairway broken by plat
forms for resting places , is a broad , sate
bridge across the chasm , from which an
excellent view of Minnehaha Falls is
obtained , which is one of the prettiest
cascades in the Glen. Further up..the
rocks assume all sorts of fanciful shapes ,
impending , depending , and quite per
pendicular , until at a point , the high
and rugged walls draw close together
Forming Cascade Cavern , where the wat
er falls over the rocks nearly 100 feet
into a cavernous pool below.
Jfot the least of the attractions of a
sojourn here , is the elegant Glen Moun '
tain House , picturesquely situated on
the mountain top and surrounded by
lovely groves. It is a delightful retreat ,
200 ! at all times , and provided with ev-
sry facility for comfort and amusement.
The dining room-and culinary depart
ment is located in a unique "Swiss cot
tage" on the opposite side of the chasm
and connected with the main hotel by a
handsome , covered , iron bridge. Mr.
Michener , the proprietor , is a landlord
whose kindly attentions every guest will
have reason to remember. Since his
ownership of the Glen , much has been
done to improve and beautify the entire
property , adding to the attractions
which nature originally created. Al
ready nearly 25,000 tourists have visi
ted the Glen this season , and the daily
tide is only just at its height. It is a
convenient point to be included in tours
to Niagara , the St. Lawrence , and the
lake region of New York. Nearly all
tourists make the Seneca Lake route a
feature of this trip. It is a beautiful
sail of forty miles between Geneva and
Watkins , going either way. Seneca is
the gem of inland lakes the Conio of
our country and the scenery along its
rugged banks and cliffs unequalled. The
Seneca Lake Steam Navigation Compa
ny run a fleet of elegant steamers , mak
ing six trips daily. The country round
about this entire region is such as one
might travel days to see. The beauty
of its situation ; its high state of culti
vation and the evident thrift of its in
habitants , all unite to evoke admiration.
THE Terre Haute ( Ind. ) Express
comes to us with a large hen and egg
story. It says in substance that one ,
Bales , an honest fanner living near
Terre Haute , has a pullet that has
just commenced to lay. That , not un
like many other young mothers its off
spring was birth-marked. The first
egg over which she fondly cackled
was found to bear the impress of a hu
man face. This did not cause much
comment , but when the next egg was
produced and upon it was found a
distinct tracing of the American flag
with the whole thirty-eight stars prop
erly arranged the next egg was anx
iously looked for. In due course of
time it came and judge of the sur
prise of the people , who by this time
had taken a lively interest in the hen's
eccentricities , when upon its surface
were plainly raised the letters James
Gr. Elaine. The hen had evidently
never learned the art of type setting
for the letters were in this shape , JAS.

* A POIT says : "The beauty of her
hair bewilders ine-pouring adown the
brow its cloven tide , swirling about
the ears on either side , and falling
around her neck tumultuously. "
Very poetical , that ; but after he is
married and sees her hair swirling-
ado wn the chairback on either side ,
or pouring its cloven tide over one end
of the bureau , or falling around the
bed-post tumultuously , the probabili
ties are that his present bewilderment
will be 90 per cent more bewilder
ing. He will be paralyzed. Binghamton -
GIIILS at Charleston , Illinois , have
got on to a new racket. They man
age to have their lovers call about
thunder shower time , and when the
boom begins , fall into the arms that
are quickly outstretched , and whisper :
"Oh , George ! The lightning ! Take
the pins out of my hair and waist
quick ! " George then always re
mains till the storm has swept by !
