goods ,uid the untiring efforts of the pro-
prietor. No annoyance was evinced at
having to how goods to parties not wish-
ing to buy. All were treated alike, the
buyer and the looker-on. The sales, we
were told by Mr. Drlggs, far exceeded his
expectation. Much credit Is due to the
clerks, Messrs. Gooch and Polk, for the
tasty manner in which everything was ar-
ranged. No pains were spared by them
or the proprietor, to bestow every atten-
tion upon the purchasers, who were loud
ill their praises of the handsome itore.
Mr. Driggs tells us that he is prepared
to sell goods at the same prices to-morrow
and every day thereafter. We feel satis-
fied that lie intends putting goods down ’ J
to tiie lowest prices, and bespeak fur him
a goodly share of public patronage.

aud L thought the most lovely scenery 1
ever saw—spread out in every direction
like a beautiful panorama. We saw green
meadows, prairies covered with flowers of;
all colors, rolling away like the waves of
of some Immense sea to the distant dense-
ly-wooded hills—silvery streams fringed
with stately trees, with groups of cattle
standing in the shade—then away in the
distance, over miles of wood-land, we could
trace tile line of the railroad and see a train
of ears creeping along like a huge serpent
with fire and smoke belching out of its
mouth. The stream was finally reached,
the horses loosened from the wagon, the
harness taken off, lines adjusted, hooks
bailed, and everything prepared for busi-
j ness, I heard the pleasant murmur of tiie
waters dashing over rocks, then a fish
gave a splash. In a moment 1 was off.
