Willi am sport, May 19. 1860 Dear Star.?The business of hanting up some wild (here called "unseated") lands in Central Pennsylvania brought me in this direction. and for some days I have, knapsack on back, been exploring the mountains and valleys hereabouts. When I last wrot? the river folks were in great tribulation about the flood, and the way it was playing the mischief with booms and saw-logs. The river did not reach so high a point as in 1H17, but did much damage to the vast lumber interests of this volt Kmr?r? V? of t H r? Qiioniittkanna * U ?. w. W1WHVH V? ?MV k. woijuvunuua, mu IUO great booin at Williamsport, which was depended upon to catch the logs from above, and the loss of lumber is variously estimated at from four to fifteen millions of feet' As a consequence, the business of Williamsport will be prostrated for the entire season The piers of the boom, it seems, were too widely separated. and the great pressure submerged it to such a degree that tbe acres of logs above passed over and escaped, being pretty much a dead loss. as there is no boom below Williamsport The country was all under water at the same time, and in my explorations up Nippenosc Talley (Clinton county) I was obliged to travel a portion of the way upon the top of the Virfinia fence; a slow process, you may imagine, he upper portion of this valley is rather noted for its fine farming laDd, (limestone.) and is valued at $10 to $75 per acre. It is subdivided into small fields of three or four acres each, and with tbe contrasted tints of toese nighly cultivated bands of vegetation presents an exceedingly rich appearance when viewed from any one of the mountain eminences overlooking it. Quite a singular feature of this valley is the total disappearance of the principal mountain ft reams a^ they strike the limestone formation of the Talley; indicating the presence of extensive subterraneous caverns in the limestone rock. At another point these lost waters reappear in the shape of a small river filled with the beautiful and delicious salmon-trout, with which all these mountain streams abound. Another noticeable feature of the valley is that the children seem to be all of one sex? female. Whether this is from the limestone water or not, I cannot say, but the fact is so. I called at a farm house to get a drink (ot water;) there was a fine family of thirteen r<?y children, but all girls. Happening to mention that I had sucn a thing about the house at home as a child of the male gender. I instantly found myself an object of such intense. though respectful interest, that I got confused and beat a retreat, but not before the good man of the bouse had been hastily sum monetl troua His work and pushed forward by numerous fair hands to take a good look at the father of a boy! No tavern on the wad Stopped at a valley grocery to get some crackers and cheese The mai!-carrier drove up at the same time, straddled upon a vehicle very much in use in these mountain districts, called a back-board," and which is in all essential particulars the trotting-gig of the Atlantic cities A score of Nippernoscrs. dressed in quaint costumes consisting partly of pantaloons or overhauls of bed-ticking, stood at the counter waiting for their mail-quota of political newspapers. A conspicuous warning to Xippernose loafers was posted up. "No sitting on the counter,'' indicating that the trader had been pestered some that way Walked on. and passed a house where a funeral seemed to be in progress. A long boxlike wag'n, covered with black oilcloth, evidently a hearse, was at the gate. Three or foar farmer-looking men stood at the door, wearing that look of discomfort (added to the natural constraint of the occasion) which agri i, i ,i i ? ' ? f cuiiuim gvuuciiicu uiojr ue excused IOT 16 ilLg on changing their loose and easy working garment* for the grim Sunday suit, tight over the knees and under the arms, which country tailore ?re apt *o prescribe as the correct thing for ceremonial wear All up the valley I met the huge barns of agricultural Pennsylvania. They are pretty uniformly of one model, constructed of wood, (not unusually painted red,) with wooden blind-windows, aud a basement of stone, havin~ a recess at tlfe southern exposure as a shelter for cattle and for convenience of acccss. The name of the proprietor and the year in which it wad built is frequently painted in large letters upon the road-side front of the barn An appendage to almost every farmhouse is a large bell mounted upon posts and used to ruuiuxm the farm laborers to their meals Deep earthern crocks, used for holding milk, are seen hanging by the doien on the fence posts to dry. Crossed the lauiiniainchaiQ to Sugar valley Mountain land here is estimated at from $1 to $3 per acre, has some pine and other timber, ana is reclaimable in parches, but in the main consist* of barren mountain sides, strewn thickwith strong sand stone) rubbish, and at every turning the traveler comes upon vast "stone slides. ' covering many acres so thickly that no vegetation can gain a footing. Migar vaney, nae :>ippenose, aoounds in limestone of the dark blue variety, but the expense of burning it with wood is such that it cannot compete with the lime of the coal districts, and little or nothing ia done with it. The land if beat adapted to wheat, but in consequence of the weevil plague, latterly the attention of the farmers has been directed to Indian corn and summer crops. Through this alley the most prodigal waste of fine timber is seen, where stately pines, one hundred and fifty feet in height, bare been girdled by the original settlers, which trees would, if they could now be brought into market unscathed, be worth more than all the land and improvement* of the valley, valuable as the aalley land undoubtedly is. Fishing creek, which drains this valley, gets its name from its abundance of trout, and though the twenty-two inch fish of yore are no longer hooked, they are yet flush in numbers. The Ixack Walton of the valley?one Murray, caught one thousand trout last summer, and rarely goes out without getting a string of f>rty or fifty It may be of interest to the angler to know that he utterly rejects the fly ' and '-all new-fangled notions, ' using for bait nothing but the common red worm While I was at Logansville in this valley, the wonder of the neighborho<?d was directed to the astonishing manner in which a huge pine, some 120 feet in height and three or four f?et through, had been literally shattered to kindling wood by the licktning. I visited the tpot, and can testify tnat fragments of the ; pine were wittered in every direction to a distance of one hundred and fifty feet from the tree Some thirty feet of the upper portion of the pine had been cat or broken ofl' by the moke and Jailing perpendicularly, had p entered the ground in *uch a manner that to the casual glance it appeared like anotb< r tree The remainder of the trunk had been j shivered by the prodigious force of the ele< - ! trie stroke and the dissevered portions hurled with the tremendous power noted above. Although divided into such oonvenient kindling wood. I wu told that it atood no chance of being brought into requisition m such, there being genera] supenution againet the use of I the poisoned ladj with a pan of miik, who drank it very freely, and also took the white of ej*g< so as to render the poiaon inoooous bh? wu mod out of danger Let this antidote be remembered, and used in similar cane*.'* IC^It la said that the theatrical part of the Jnpdarw entertainment at Philadelphia will be at the Academy of Mualc, under the management of Measrs. Wbeatley h Clark, and will be ao arranged as to furniah an Idea of the various kin isemeut? of the country, operatic, dramatic, and pantomimic, with baiiad singing, dancing, and legerdemain. A grand bail at the Academy Is also talked of. i ??? ? f-vKcvj, pmuouuo, auu sen* denial, and the>e are essential to the character of a perfect wife; without them, no woman is worth having Being an "old maid'' implies decision of character; neither sham, nor shows, nor courtly manners, nor splendid persons hare won them over; nor fair promises nor shallow tear*; they looked beyona the manner and the dress, and finding no cheering indication of depth of mind ana sterling principles, they gave up the specious present fur the chance of a more solid future, and determined in hope and patience and resignation to "bide their time."?HalVa Journal of Health for June. As Axtii>ot* for Poiso*.?The Rochester Uvion says: "Two or three days ago a lady of Avon, took, by mistake, a quantity of corro* sire sublimate, sufficient to caiue death, had t ot an antidote been speedily administered The lady meant to taste some maple syrup but a bottle of bed-bug poison had been carelessly left where the bottle of syrup had stood and she took a small quantity before she discovered her mistake. Fortunately a domestic who remembered the fataJ poisoning case of Mrs. Nowlan. which occurred at Avon, a few year* ago, had the presence of mind to run to me ueii. xi an luese oners win not do, I will agree in two months to be ready to fight the four best men that can be produced >n England, beginning with Sayers, at interval* of thirty days apart, for the belt. I was told if I won it I could have it. I would rather tight for it than anything el.-e, but I am willing, under the present state of public feeling, to acoept of half of it If that be denied me. and through the exceptional action of the British authorities I be denied the privilege of unother meeting. I shall hare no alternative but to go home, refusing ull English testimonials and subscriptions, and ahall hereafter feel at liberty?nay, justified by all the equities of the late transaction?to sign myself ' The Cham pion of the World." " A Pl*a fob Oli> Maids.?A woman at the age of thirty-three and a third years, who has never been married, is considered passer; is called an '*ohl maid," and the term is most unjustly used in derision. The very fact of being an old maid is prima facie evidence of th? nMuminn nf ?-"J 1 ?" >aj?, auaoDg other tnings : I atn willing, first of all, to accept the proposition made by a writer in Bell's Life, thlt S-iyers and I should have a -belt apiece,' to be gotten up by public subscription, provided that the true champion's belt remain in the hinds of the editor of Bell's Life, to be fought for again, the best man to take it. If that be not agreed to, I will accept the proposition put forth in Punch, viz., to divide the belt?I to take one-half and Sayers to keep the other half. I will then head a subscription to provide a new half to his, and in this way I thick good feeling may be preserved on both sides. " If neither of these propositions (proceeding, as they do, from English sources) are allowed me, then I shall claim that Sayers meet me on neutral ground, where our late battle may be properly resumed Though I am not Jet quite ready to become a member of the eace Society. I will cheerfully vary my propositions somewhat to suit him. As the belt may be said to be equally owned by both of us, I will agree to ruu him a footrace from 1IXJ yards to five miles for the stakes and belt, or I will wrestle with him for the belt, or I will row him for the belt, or I will swim a mile with him for the belt, or I will take hold of hands and jump from a housetop with him for ,k. k.U TC -II ? ** - - O ?-?vw?w*? r.

Another proclamation to the Sicilians is as follows; "Sicilians' I have brought you a body of brave men. who have hastened to respond to the heroic cry of Bicilv We, the reams of the battles of Lombardy, are with you. 'All we ask is the freedom of our land. United, the work is ea*y. To arms thpn! He who does not snatch up the weapon is a coward or traitor to his country. Want of arms is no excuse. We shall get muskets, but for tho E resent any weapons, will do in the hands of rave men. The municipalities shall provide for thechildren, women and old men deprived of their support.

These valleys are settled almost entirely bj Germans, or rather by Pennsylvania Dutch, as they are styled here They are pretty much Americanized, eschew lager, take kindly to whiskv, and gc to church twioe a day. With a little more space at command, I should like to tell of another and rougher pedestrian trip through the immensely inultitudinously rocky county of Sullivan; how at one valley tavern I found the landlord and all his household at work in the oornfield, and he being anxious to get in his corn, and I to get on to Laporte, we compromised, and I helped "kiver" corn while the landlady got me some dinner; how at another place where I stopped over night, the male members after supper paddled and rinsed their feet in the running brook before the house, and then until bedtime sat in a femi-circle before the blazing w?od fire, toasting their toes with solemn sat: .r~- i * isiwuun, bow i w>? in nopes tnat tne pretty daughters of my mountain host would follow suit, but they didn't. I may add in a line that the Pennsylvania girls, like our Washington girls, have tolerably large feet, but like those of the latter, they are very finely proportioned. C. S. N.
