POLK and DALLAS.
A medley ballad, showing how the nomination
of Polk and Dallas "indignified" the universal
"Coon Party," written by a "Buckeye," who
fears God, loves his country, repudiates Whi
promises, goes for Oregon, and believes in the
extension of the Democratic area a leetle beyond
the ktio Del Norte, which includes He opines, a
place called Texas.

THE PILOT MOUNTAIN.
Extract of a letter from Dr. Jeremiah
Bottle, cf Rdgecombe, to Gen. Calvin
Jones, of Raleigi, dated
Surry County, N. C. (at J. Uritrlanlis'.)
August 19tb", IS 1 5.'
Dear Sir: After leaving your" city we
passed through' Salem; and being on a'tour
of health, and willing t'o'beguile a' part of
our timei we resolved oil an excursion
through this'ebuhty-, which Had been rep
resented' to' melasma sterile, and uninterest
ing pan of tliedotih'try. But I hVve'found
myself in many respects' agreeably disap
pointed. .On th'e'slightest interview with
lhe inhabitants, 1 (bund th'eni in tHe enjoy
ment of blessings which r6' money can
purchase, viz: health arid contentment
The country is peculiarly calculated to
form strong'arid robust constitutions, with
.bold and enterb'rlsing dispositions." We
flted not wonder', therefore, at the praises
acquired by our th'ntaiheer1 soldiers; in
the great and desperate enterprises
which they have been engaged.
When we. arrived at the top of the hill,
from whence we descended tp Uousertown,
our attention was attracted bv a view rat!
the distance of 17 miles) of the pinnacle of j
Mount Ararat, whichv is cornmoiily cal
led the PltQT MOUNTAIN. This cu
riosity of nature had xcited in my mind !
an interest greater than bus usually been I
produced , from reading (Mr. Morse's ac-1
count of it. We took the road which lead I
I A If 1J i ' . . I
uy uuru s wuere we stopped .anil
dined; here we. had a most sublime and in
teresting review of the Mountain,, . w,h!ch
exhibited a blue appearance, rearing its
head of rock many hundred feet above the
tops of the. adjacent hills and trees. Its
shape at this distance had a striking resem
blance to that cf your market, houe, the
roof of which representing the base, and
body of the mountain; the perpendicular
octagon, the maii pinnacle of rock, and the
shingled top of this, the elevation of earth
covered with rude heaps of rocks, shrubs
an on the top of the rock pinnacle, which I
shall describe in another place.
Notwithstanding the pleasure I receiv
ed from this view of its solitary and mag
nificent grandeur I felt an irresistable dc
sire to approach it. Accordingly we pro
ceeded to Mr. Shepard's, who lived ofTthe
road, in a delightful and healthy situation
about three or lour miles from the moun
tain. Next morninir having been enter-
4 err n
tamed with great civility by Mr. S. and
liis lady t we. e.naSec a 'r- John Fletcher
to conduct us thither. . About a mile from
the mountain we, called at a mineral spring.
the proprietors of which render it an object
with , valetudinarians. , Wfe then turned
our course, toot on obscure nath wav
which led alon a ridge probably. .ICQ feet
above the vallies on each side. When we
were yet a mile oil", we stopped and view
ed itagain with increased delight; the for
mer blue appearance changing into a rich
qark green, of decorating trees and shrub
beries, through which wc could perceive
its rocky surface; the pinnacle of granite
rock of white appearance, seemed a magni
ficent building, ornamented with green
briars, vines,, and shrubs, at suitable dis
tancej growing out of its wall, combining
in an eminent degree the sublime and beau
tiful. The ridge byt which we approached
it terminated in a valley that seemed to
surround the. mountains, which we now
commenced the task of ascending; but the
surface being entirely covered with rockf
of all sizes and in all postures,' we were
soon laid under, the, necessity of leaving
our. horses. Whilst we were ascending
on foot, and experiencing the fatigue of ri
sing step by step on an angle of about 45 d.
the weather bein hot I recollected that
my neighbor Mr. W. some years ago,
having laboured under chronic disea;je and
debility, and excited by .desires. .like my
own lost his life, by ah acute inflmation.
induced by precisejy the expediton I was
now performing", I took the piecat'.tion of
going a zigzag direction , which rendered
the ascent much easier. Bui being" anx
ious toexplore the grand spectacle still be
fore us, we lost no tin e until we arrived at
the. lop of4 the mountain, .which is at the
foot of the pinnacle, so called. Immedi
ate', the air became so keen that one of the
qompiiny waa near having an ague before
ne couia get on nis coat, wmch lie h.id ta
ken on in consequence of the heat. Whilst
we were viewing such obj -i ts as presented
themselves it b'igan to rain first helow us?
and afterwards vxhere we were, xvhich
compelled us to take Blieltcr in rocky
caverns. Cur pilot ascended the pinnacle,
but we had not tne enterprise lojollqiv h-m
up tli is sleep wall. of rock 200 I'eet jiigh.
It is perp'fndicularj or projecting over on
every fide for 275 feet in height,' except
one narrow steep piss way, wjth slight
footsteps: at one part of which about 30 or
40 feet high, the reck is perpendicular 4 or
4 ft. from one step to the next here it
takes an expert climber to make his way
without assistance; afterwards the ascent is
easier.. .. After the rain had ceased, and I
had become more familiarized wii jj the ac
clivity at first so awful, I resolved ..to fol
low my guide and fear no evil; which I
did with little difficulty, except at tHe place
mentioned above. ... ,
My fatigue had by this time occasioned
great thirst, which 1 soon found the mean,s
of aliaying by gathering and eating ground
whortleberries. I now began to .walk
about and view this upper region, which I
found to contain about an acre of ground,
covered witH rdcks and only enough soil
id admit of the growth pf shrubby pines,
and ah'undergtowth. I .found .that it had
been much ficrjuented, both by females as
well as males, as appeared from names and
dates cut on trees, and marked wiihjhe
pencil on such' parts of rocks as were shel
tered from the weather. 1 now turned jry
attention to such prospects as were present
ed to my view from this elevated situation,
j The Bluer idee' for the space of 40 or 50
rriiles in extent; the intervening country of
fJO miles the plantations the waves , for
ced by the tops of the trees over a hilly
toimtry, like the troubled ocan, were cap-
tivating beypnd description,. ,.tt bpgan to j
thunder and lighten;.and J beanj.a.roariug.
winch, admonished me to look out for shel
ter, among the ropks,. from the approaching
Storm. . U appeared tardy, in its approach
1 went-.tosthe brink and found tUat there
was a hard shower of rajn falling below
me,, whilst 1 remained perfectly dry. with?
out shelter, When I returned from , the
pinnacle, those at the foot of it give evi
dence cf the hard rain where they were.
I mention this circumstance, not. to con
vince you that it is a common occurrence
in nature, but because it was new to me in
fart, but old in. theory; while others (acctis
lomed.to believe nothing but what they
see, reject the idea without examining it's
principle. ... ,
On enquiry I was informed that among
those who have visited this rnountsdo, a. far
greater portion of females than males had
acted so much the hero as to ascend the
pinnacle. We were also jnforrncc) of a
(nan who hadt come. a considerable dis
tance, and , being, too timid to ascend was
carried up by force by his cruel comrades
which alarmed him. to such a deirree that
the faculties of his mind were endangered I
Were 1 to stop here, your idea ,of its ap
pea ranee from every side, excepting ,1 he
eastern would be .imperfect. A.bqut (00
lods from the main pinnacle, as already
described, is the cliff called the L.ittle Pin
nacle, which is about 200 feet perpendicu
lar on the east side and on, the, west goe
off with a gradual d"eseent,, so trjat. hunte,r
hive pursued deer to he top, from whence
they have leaped oT the precipice, and
were killed. JDogs aleo .hav.e beeri kt j led
by jumping off in .pursuit ,cf , their game.
The part of the, mountain between 1 lie. two
pinnacles forms a kind of fps.toon, which
renders its form at a distance singularly
You would suppose from the account 1
have just given you of this rude display ol
nature, that it is wholly destitute of the
means of benefitting either . man or animal.
But it affords good grazing. . The grass
springs up between the two rocks in such
abundance that it wus contemplated by tbe
French gentleman, on whom it had been
imposed as a tract of igood land, to form
ihis mountain into a sheep walk, and he ac
tually placed pn it j.00 head of;jshee p; : but
he had a bad shepherd, wo, suffered them
to die for .want of jWinjer feeding, which
disgusted the owner, and, he. , gaye up. his,
plan.,. Ie . also intended to , establish , a
house of entertainment a.t.the above men
tioned Mineral Spring, and .invite, valetu
dinarians to resort thither for the recovery
of health. The Spring being at the. foot of
the Pilot Mountain, would lend greatly to
attract visitors. , ... . .
With much esteem, . , .
