TilE tOME CIRC, FORGIVE. Bly all the turmoil thou hast felt Within thy tempted breast, When fiery passions strove to melt God's image there impress'd, lBy all the struggles of thy will To quell their rebel might, Forgive the wretch, who, battling ill, Was worsted in the light! Thou knowest not what cunning snares Were spread beneath his feet; What foemen lurk'd in ambush'd lairs To intercept retreat; The weakness thou woldst harshly chide Should tender pity woo; If thou hadst been as sorely tried, Thou might have fallen, too! Forgive, and breathe a gentle'word " Of sympathy and love, Like that by weeping Mary heard From One now throned above; And thou mayst win from depths of woe The soul that went astray; And light anew Hope's faded glow To change ita night to day. But harshness raises higher yet The waters of despair, And weaves around a stronger net To mesh, the erring there; Till, settling heavily, they sink Beneath the tumid wave; And-thou, though standing on the brink, Didst s...

GENERAL NEWS. a The New York Sun says:. ""'Tiere is little Ii doubt that the revolt of a certain number of the White River Utes against an imbecile I civil in control propped *up by bayonets, a will be used as a plea for robbing the whole r tribe of their rich reservation and driving t them from Colorado. Already SLeridan, t il :hed with the gallant defence made by e Payne and the gallant rescue effected by I Dodge and Merritt, announces that he will i put troops enough around the reservation I to annihilate the Utes. 'The'very people f aN ho were, only the other day, crying shame i against the British tor treating the Zulu king, their brave enemy, as a common fel- i on by setting a price on his head, are now € demanding that the Ute warriors be hanged I and the lands of the whole baud confis cated."

KISCELLAIIEOUS. HOW INDIA RUBER3 IS OBTAINED. A correspondent of the Boston Commer mal Bulletin, writing from the Amazon riv ,,er, Brazil, gives the following account of the .method of gathering rubber, as lately ob served by him. The process, in many re spects, resembles the method of obtaining sugar from the maple trees in Vermont : "At last we arrived at the . encampment, ,which seemed to be on an island In a 'ast .archipelago. Though the Indians divided the water into river, creek, and lagoon, the latter formed by tge overflow in the rainy season, I could not perceive the distinction. in some instances the lagoons appeared to th have a current, while the rivers had none, a :but I accepted their names. "There were abundant gropes.of rubber ,trees.jn all directions, and men, women and s' ,chldren were,engaged incollecting the rub ber, with tnore4method in their labors than -1 should have expected iynong such a rude, nid savage people. rach one had a.oertain .number of trees allott...

Rockl IMoltail Hisbaudal l. R. N. SUTiERLIN, Editor. W. H. sIrTHERLIN, Assistant Editor. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1879. Tax contemplated changes in public land laws is a subject fraught with great interest to the Far West and Northwest. The visit of the U. S. land commissioners to the west, the tone of circular letters with which the country is being flooded, and a number of minor occurrences, give assurance that there is to be an effort made at the next session of Congress to mike some radical changes in the law regulating the taking up of public lands, and from what we have been able to glean from various sources on the subject, these changes are in nowise calculated to benefit the masses of our people, or insure the development ind prosperity of the Territo ries. The most important of the contem plated changes is the enacting of a law giv ing the government the right to rent, lease, or Bell at a nominal price large dis ts of counptyr grani n iuo ses. The pretext for thii cIhange is ...

LIVE STOCK. I - HORSES' LEGS. In a recent article on the formation of horses the Rural New Yorker says : A plummet dropped from the.point of the shoulder of a well made animal, will reach the ground at the point of the toe, when a. healthy horse is resting on its limbs. If the foot is to the rear of this, the equilibrium is lost, the action clamberin'g and unsafe. If the line falls "without," the legs are too otose; it it falls "within," the legs are too far apart. Where the limb quits the trunk, it should be well developed, since here dwells the power by which the lower parts of the limbs are impelled. The flesh should bulge out; for.a thin forearm is incompata ble with excellence in a horse. Toward the knee the swelling should gradually di minish, leaving upon the surface of the joint a broad, clean and firm appearance. The forearm should be long, the shin compara tively short, for the reach depends mainly on the former, and no muscles of any im pprtance are located in the latter....

THE HOIE CIRCLE. ONLY A BOY. Only a boy, with his noise and fun, The veriest mystery under the sun; As brilmfull of mischief. and wit, and glee, As ever a human frame can be, And as hard to manage as-ah! ab, me! 'Tis hard to tell, Yet we love him well. Only a boy with hisifearfnl tread, Who cannot be driven, but must be led;'. Who troubles the neighbors' dogs and cats, And tears more clothes and spoils more hats. Loses more tops, and kites and bats, Than would stock a store For a year or more. Only a boy, with his wild, strange, ways, With his idle hours or busy days; With his queer remarks and odd replies, Sometimes foolish and sometimes wise, Often brilliant for one of his size, As a meteor hurl'd From the pleasant world. Only a boy, who will be a man If nature goes on with her llrst great plan- If water, or fire, or some fatal snare. Conspire not to rob us of this our heir, Our blessing, our trouble, our care, Oui torment, our joy, '' Only a boy." Written for the Rocky MOuntain H...

GENERAL NEWS. A Washington special of the 19th says the following dispatch was puplished here to-day: Chicigo, October 17.-To General Sherman : General Merritt says in a dis patch just received that he intends to march in pursuit of the hostile Indians to Grand river on the 15th and from there to the Un. compahgre Agency, where he requests sup plies to be sent. Subsequently your dis patch of October 13th was sent to him, with orders to obey the directions therein given, and I presume this will stop him. Your dispatch should have reached him on the 15th. General Merritt, and General Crook, the department commander, are at a loss to know what to do, and so am I. There are 1,500 or 1,600 men at White river. Their road to the Uncompahgre agency is over the main range of the Rocky Mountains and i.s very bad, and the danger of being caught by the winter snow should be seriously en tertained. \Ve went to the White river agency at the solicitation of the Indian Bureau, whose agent was murde...

MISCELLANEOUS. A KAFFIR WEDDING. Mrs. Hutchinson, the authoress, was pres ent a Kaffir marriage, and " was surprised to see what really pleasing faces many of the women had, and how tastefully their rather meagre toilettes were arranged.' T'heir toilettes were, indeed, "meagre," but ,.she adds that "the modesty and uncon sciousness with which they were worn could not have been surpassed by that of the most artless white-frocked debutante that ever blushed in a drawing-room at home." Mrs. Hutchinson continues: "The wedding was a kraal about two miles from the camp. Shall I ever forget that drive, as we jolted over stones .and 'shaved' ant hills, and bumped in and out of holes, the mules all the time gqing at,tfull gallop, till we really expected that the cart would tutrn over with us every moment? As we approached the kraal. our .ears were greeted by the shrieks, yells ,and ;,bwls of the wedding .party, and on sur mountipg a ridge of ground we came ppon a coi.pany all in " full fig,"...

Rocky lountain HRull lanmll . B. N. BUTHERLIN, Editor. W. n. SUT]HERLIN, Assistant Editor. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 80, 1879. THERE are perhaps some living in the far away East who imagine that the people of the Great West owe thegeneral government a debt of gratitude for the privilege of free pasturage which they enjoy, when in reality it is the nation that owes the frontiersmen a debt of gratitude it can never pay. It is the stock men of the Rocky mountain region who are subjugating our wily Indian foe. Yes, it is*the "cow-boys" of the Far West that have subdued the wilderness and laid the foundation of civilization in the beauti ful valleys of the Rocky mountains. The desert did not blossom as a rose, for such was not their bidding, but they paved the way for the stalwart yeomanry, who are turning mountain slope and valley into grain-fields and nook and dell into orchard and garden. True it is, indeed, that success in stock husbandry in the West is rapidly aobhieved. But who are more de...

LIVE STOCK. A RECENrr article published In the Ameri ican Agriculturalist, in regard to the disease known as blackleg now infecting the herds of Montana, reveals the fact that our city journals after all are not the best posted in regard to practical workings of mattersper taining to stock husbandry. If the editor of the Agriculturist was to travel among our herds and visit our stock ranches they would soon find that blackleg was not con fined to calves in good condition, but oc curs among skim milked calves as well. And as to detecting symptoms of the dis ease and applying a preventive, that is out of the question, as there is no detecting its approach until it appears; and if the reme dy proposed is no more to the purpose than the remarks, it will prove of little value to stock-growers. By some cause unknown to us a copy of the proceedings of the Territorial Stock Growers' Association, which took place at Hlelena fair week, and which was sent, nev er reached us. We learn, however,...

THE OlOME ·CIRCLE. THE WATER THAT HAS PASSED. Listen to the water-mill, Through the live-long day, how the clanking of the whtels Wears the hours away Languidly the Autumn wind Stirs the greenwood leaves; From the fields the reapers sing, Binding up the sheaves, And a proverb haunts my mind, As a spell is cast: "' The mill will never grind With the water that has passed.'' Take the lesson to thyself, Loving heart and true; Golden years are fleeting by, Youth is passing too; Learn to make the most of life, Lose no happy day; Time will never bring thee back Chances swept away. Leave no tender word unsaid; Love while life shall last ' The mill never grind With the water that has passed." Work while yet the daylight shines, Man of strength and will; Never does the streamlet glide Useless by the mill. Wait not till to-morrow's sun Beams upon the way; All that thou canst call thine own Lies in thy to-day. Power, intellect and health May not, can not last: ' The mill can never grind With t...

MIISCELLANE OUIS. A SEA WONDER. A monstrous submarine plant is gron4g in the Northern Pacific ocean. It is one of the Melanospherns, and known to botanists as the Macrocistis Pyritera, and is said to dwart all vegetable products yet known by its prodigious proportions. It grows sonic times to such a size as to cover great areas of sea-bed. one specimen having been dis covered that occupied by measurement three square miles, while the stern was eight feet thick. It is difficult to conceive of such a plant, and to understand how any adequate system of nourishment can be maintained through so extended channels. The macro- ti cistis leaves the famous big trees of Califor- a nia immeasurably behind, making them t] seem, indeed, like small reeds. It has an in finite variety, so specimens being so small as to be visible only under a powerful mi croscope. The much-talked of wonders of wonders of nature are more wonderful than has ever been conjectured, as research and science are daily teac...
