Like the others, the station at the mouth of the great canyon, is rudely constructed, but comfortable, as things go among the mountains; while cozy in his stall, and abiding the expected 'pony' from the west, stands a sleek, active looking Kentucky animal, only too eager to stretch his limbs above the hills farther on. The rider and groom whom we find within the station seems no less nervous and impatient to get in motion than the horse. It is indeed, the first attempt which is thus to be made across the country, and not a soul upon the line but deems his reputation and that of his employers--not speaking of the animals themselves--derectly involved.
