Description of the subject depicted in the print (from the original source): THIS is one of the most harmonious combinations of mountain, vale, and river, to be found in America; we know not whether to call it more beautiful or grand. Fine as is all the scenery of this neighborhood, however, it is not till very lately that the current of travel has turned thither, and but partially yet. Harper's Ferry will sometime become a resort for admirers of nature from all nations, and it may well share the honors of pilgrimage with Trenton Falls and Niagara. The hosts of sight-seers from across the Atlantic will make our New World lions as tame as the Pyramids. It is difficult, at least for me, to stand on any eminence commanding a landscape, wild, yet formed for a blest human residence, without seeing in it the forfeited inheritance of the red man. The unpicturesque new village of the white man, his mill, or his factory, does not convey to my imagination an image of happiness; and I regret the primitive rover of the, wild, who neither blackened nature with smoke, nor violated her harmony with brick and shingle. The tide of sympathy seems turning of late against these oppressed tribes, and it is not amiss sometimes to remember our own atrocities as well as theirs. What will be thought hereafter of the massacre of the poor Conestogoes, as related in the history of these middle regions of our territory ! Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
