Tactrand Cento Fort in August. --A correspondent of the Boston Transcript, writing from the White Mountain, says: We had now accended some five thousand feet, and catching a glimpse of a small snow bank, I pushed on in advance of my companion, and he was soon dodging behind the rocks to avoid my snow balls. What a grand thing it is to have a snow-ball fight in August! And that within a hundred miles of the "Hub." Verily, times are changing. Up, up we go, at last what a sight meets our vision! There, far away, high up the steep precipice, lay the snow in one broad, vast field. The dimensions must have been at the least one thousand feet by five hundred in width and height, while in many places the depth was over forty or fifty feet. It piled together at a depth of ten feet, it, without doubt, would have made a field of a square form five hundred feet on a side. There must have been twenty-five thousand cubic feet of snow in Tuckerman Ravine on the 2d of August, 1861.

861. Dear Sir: I received your esteemed favor and noted its contents with concern. There may be a change of position, giving to the gentleman from Greene the position you desire. However that may be I will seek to get a regiment for the gentleman from Greene, and they will be in the same service — both be at your place.
