Aura TELEORAPIL aflf-w.fc Oo», XMcA IUM MM* frtrMtt, Alton* nt. FBIDAT EVE., FEB. 4. Suit Spring! ID Madison County, (From Edi. Intelligencer.) i Thirty /ard< north of the iron bridge ortr Bum creek, on the Marine and Highland road, u located a salt spring. The oroek makes a turn at the point, and up to n short time ago, water gushed from a iyoatnore trco, in tho center of the turn . At limes the spurt* Ing was qnite violent, and after a heavy shower it is known to have oonie out with a rumbling noise, the force throw-. ing the spray several foet into the air. A short distance above the sprint is u deep basin, known by hunters nnd residents tn the violnlty ae Beaver Onm. The water, when high, cornea down with * rush from the dam, and as it approaches the torn, forms a kind of rapid, and at the spring a whirl pool. The stamp at one time was on th<bank of the creek, as the earlier settler* remember, but tho water out, in on th<side, and gradually eroded until u 1- now in about the center. Contrary to general belief the phenomenon Is not the result of a Hisure in a rock, but owes its existence to extensive drillings made at the point over three score vears ago. At an early day there was ft salt or deer lick at the place, which attracted the attention of tnu In dlans and the earlier settlers, in 18. '8. a Kflntuoklan, William Biggs, vUiten the spot, and being charmed with th> beauty bountiful nature had be.Hovveii on the locality, and impelled byjihu Delia of the probably existence of salt in larjr quantities, determined to bore. H> first sank a shaft, thirty feet deep, when he struck the rock, lie then coin men ced to drill, and finally, at a 'depth ot 400 feet, struck the salt water. Th< trunk of a hollow sycamore was set into 'the shaft and cemented t > the rook, itv salt water flowing from the top of it i> few feet above the ground. lie manufactured sale here for a considerabl time and until he had cut down all ih. timber for some distance around, making six bushels of salt per day and consum ing from twelve to fifteen cords of wood The enterprise subsequently proved so expensive and the price of the produc was ao low that bisfuncU gave out, ami dusatittied with his isolated position he moved away. Una of the hands employed by Mr. Biggs informed Hon. Solomon Keofli, deceased, many year.- ago,thatfrom the.depih of 250 feet, oven time they cleaned the shaft, un offensive smelling fluid like oil was brought up. It is supposed that Mr. Biggs struck St. Peter's rock at the depth he had bored. The hole is unquestionably tin- first and deepest sunk iu the county The water was sulphuric and contained some mineral solution. It ran cominu ally, up to a few months ago, but tb tree has decayed, and the action of ih. water la no longer visib.e on the surface. Several wells have been drilled to n depth of four.hundred feet and over, a' Highland, and tarnish a bountiful supply of water, but in, none doe* the watei . rise of its own force. The facts above given confirm thi opinion held by geologists, that an artesian well in Madison county is situph a matter of dollars and cents. The borings winch are now beiny made near this city, will probably settl> many geological interests in connection with the ground we Jive on, which have, as yet, been unexplored.

'Let me bavo your pen. What's the subject?' •• TENNYSON'S IDYI.S OF THE KING.' "In httif an hour Julian Hawthorne dashed off a review which has since been tho wonder of Harvard and surprised the best critics. He gave it to Eliott Clark, "'i'bo next time our professor saw James Freeman Clark ho explaimed: " 'I want to congratulate you upon your son's produrtion. During the thirty years that I have been couuccted with the school 1 have never seen anything equal to it.' "The next day, at tho dinner table, James Freeman Clark told his son iibout thu compliment paid to his work. iToung Clark at otico gave Hawthorne tlie credit of it "Whon Huwthorno selected a name for his little daughter' h'u" called her tiildugnrde.

"Who'll be the awf." *• There was a timo—ami that not so very long ago—when a man of lotiers wns entirely unlikely to bo a man of uoionco, and men of science wore scarcely more, likely to hnvo much facility with thoir puns. It was said of Scott. indeed, Hint lie was tho first English novelist to load his readers out of doors. However Unit may be, hu certainly did take lhen) out of iloor», and right glori ougly, iu both liis proso nnd his poetry Nor'can that man bo called other than unhappy who does not still enjoy reading of ull those knights'and merry raun under iho greenwood iruo; who does not like to hear tlio "hark and whoop and wild halloo" in "Tlio Lady of the Lake," or go joyously into tho fainting fluid with Ui Vurnon; who does not, iu '•Rob Hoy," gladly accompany tho groat novelist who mado tlio Highlands n Mueca with iiis striking lalos of war and lulvunuiro. But Scuit's readers look to him for action, fur romantic scunury, for air and uxorciso, and do not expect any minute observation of nature, as Ami u bou and liuffon understood it—aa wo have boon made to understand it by Thorenu, Mr. Burroughs, Mr. Tovrey, and Miss Thomus, whoso "Hound Year" has just set iis to thinking of this subject 01 Orlirnnll bunks lire wild nnd fnlr, A ml Grout wuuils »ro grocn, Ai«I j'i u "my giuiii'i-Kiiiinnds (hero Would gnicL' u snminor ijiifon.

It has been reserved for nn American school—Atlantic, as it might bo culled —to show whnt tniuute observation untl good writing onn accottipli«h between them. In saying this wo do not forget one or two English novelists who have como closo to nature in some of iier visible forms. Klngsloy and his Devonshire const can Hot soon bo forgotten, but ho ngnln, as well ns Mr. Bhiok. is chiefly concerned with what may bu broadly described as sconery. As for Thomas Hiinly—wuudurftil itttd beautiful as arc many of his descriptions—his treatment of nature is so subjective, so uutch ol his own personality enters uvcu into n piuuu-o of n hudgoruw, that he scarcely counts iu our discussion. It is. then, to an American school that wo must look for a real union of literature and natural history. Mr. Burroughs, Miss Thomas, Air.
