Pennsylvania Central R. 11. for the year

to bo the best built and most carefully

Sufficient proof of this' can be found in
the foot that of three miWon first-lass

unusual inducements. The following

DEAR WILL.—Once more I write you,"
oltho' I have not received a letter fron^
Minnesota since I left. I think I have
written fou or five to you^ b!it suppose
I must have several letters on the way
I have jusi heard from Grass-
hopper, or better known as "Beaver Head'*
a little 0er one hundred miles from here.
There are about five hundred men at work
they are getting from five JO fifty dolfars
per day, and some are making as high as
o'ne hundred dollars per day. But ypu
must remember this is done by hired la
bor. The man who has a claim, and can
make ten dollars per day,'will hire twelve
men and pay them four dollars per day,
and mate, of course six dollars per day
off each man, consequently big wages for
himself. Now I am well'satisfied that if
we had plenty of Water that we could
make from ten to twelve dollars per day.
We have very heavy stripping to take off
before we get to our "pay dirt-*' -Thiais
four ^eeV ^p^flwitri(i
ping i„ from thre to si feet deep. Tw
men with plenty of Water can strip mere
land in one day than twelve can do with
shovels. Another advantage we gain is,
that we get rid of all the surface dirt.—
This we intend doing in the' Spring.
Last week We (two men) took out fifty
dollars in one day, and the next fifty-three
dollars. This is a new streak very like
ly we eannot work it this fall. The strip
ping is too deep to shovel off—it hastobe
done with water/ and as our old friend,
Mr. Stearns, would sav, we have to "rig a
purchase" to get it off.
Mining is very hard work.' Those who
leave Minnesota to' make money in the
mines, win find that it is ho child's plsy, I
can assure them. I had to laugh at some
of the last train from Minnesota, When
they SaW us up to our knees in mud and
water, they exclaimed, "My God, is that

SWISSDELM.—In a friendly ar-
ticle of yours, I noticed a slight mistake,
which, if not corrected, might prove prej
udicial to me outside of St. Gloud.
You stated that I graduated in Medi
cine at Dartmouth College, N. H.f which
is not the tact. I received, in the fall of
1842, at Bowden College, Me, the degree
of IS.: A. Subsequently to that time I at
tended medical lectures.there, also a full
course, at Dartmouth.. I received the
parchment to which yon alluded, as giv
ing such wonderful powers, after having
attended a full course of lecturers both at
this school and the Pennsylvania General
Hospital from the Jefferson Medical Col
So you see if I do not understand my
business, at certain vinous fermentations
uptown would have it, it is not the fault
of the schools.

advertisement in another column, the

damage was done. Thefirewas communica

Thomas was a Lieutenant in the 1st Regi
ment when it enlisted for the three
months' service, and was with the regi
ment during the battle of Bull's Run.—
After promotion, he was appointed Lieut.
Col. of the 4th regiment, and took part in
the seige of Corinth. Shortly after, he
received the appointment of Colonel of the
8th regiment. He is a good officer, of fine,
soldierly appearance, and much liked by
his men. Maj Camp has bsen for eleven

active part in the battle at Wood Lake,
SUBSCRIBE.—A club is now being
formed for the New York Weekly Tribune
—the best and cheapest weekly paper pub
lished in the United States. It is ever
firm in its.assertion of Right, and vindica
tion of Freedom. Thoroughly loyal, and
seeking for the best interests of the coun
try, it, with its chief editor, Horace Gree
ley, has been made the object of the abuse
and bitterest sarcasm of the pro-slarery
press of the North. The general war cor
lespondence of the Tribune is fuller and
more satisfactory than that of any, other
weekly. Call at the Post Office.
TOWN COUNCIL.—-There was no meet
ing of the Town Council on Tuesday even
ing. As will be seen oy reference to a
hymenial notice in another column, Aid.
Robbers had more agreeable business on
hand, and Aid Overbeck was compelled to
be absent, so that there was no quorum.—
Besides, the melodious strains of several
dozen eow bells, tin horns, kettles, drums,
Whirligigs, etc./uniting in the honor of a
charivari to Aid: Robbers at his. resi
dence near the Mayor's office, Were borne
rather too distinctly to the ears of the
members present to allow of much busi
ness being thought of. So, it was resolved
unanimously that the Mayor, such of the
Aldermen as were in attendance, the Re
corder, Town Attorney and Marshall (the
Reporter, from "conscientious scruples,"
did not mingle) adjourn to congratulate
the fortunate Alderman, and wish him
success in sundry glasses of beer washed
down by pretsels and it was farther re
solved that the Town Attorney be request
ed to draft an Ordinance requiring the
Council to exhibit the same marks of re
spect upon all future occasions. The next

extended the hospitalities of the commis
sary department to him, and, after he had
dined, .advised him to go immediately'
back to the Agency, as his men, who did
not know a Chippewa from a Sioux, might
shoot him, or any other Indian they! might
find prowling about the country. Big Dog
seeing that this was quite a .reasonable
proposition, told the Captain he would go,
and take the rest of his friends with him,
of whom he said there were about a hun
dred in all. A few days alter that, we
had a visit from another squad, of about a
dozen, as usual wanting refreshments.—.
One villainous looking old fellow, his face
streaked with soot, so as to^pjresenjk three
or four, separate rows of whiskers, pulled
Out his credentials, in huge envelopes,
which Capt. Taylor read. These purport
ed to be the appointment of the bearei, by
See. Usher, as chief of some band or oth
er. Capt. Taylor was not quite so polite
as I have seen him, nevertheless he took
them in and fed them, and giving them
enough provisions to take them to the
Agency, ordered them to leave, inconti
nently. They left promisingto go straight
to the Agency. Two or three days after
this, a messenger, Mr." Brower, from
Round Prairie, came in, with the report
that the Chippewas Were committing dep
redations at Round and Long Prairie,
stealing whatever they could lay their
hands on, and breaking things generally,
being kept out of bouses that were inhab
ited by force and, threats. Caj.t. Taylor
immediately detailed twenty-five men, ten
of Capt..McCoy's, and fifteen from his own
company, with Lieut. Freeman, all under
command of Capt. McCoy, with instruc
tions to proceed to the scene of depreda
tions, and bring into camp all male Indi
ana they could find, dead or alive. Yes
terday the detachment returned, bringing
in seven of the scoundrels whom they sur
prised and took prisoners, leaving two men
behind to bring in others, whom an hon
est "good Indian" promised to bring to
them. As yet these men have not return
ed. The prisoners here are-kept under
guard in a Sibley tent, to remain until or-'
ders shall arrive from Headquarters as to
their disposal. They, are a pack of ugly
looking rascals, and don't seem to faney
captivity over much, particularly as they
ore mode to chop their own wood and
bring their own water.

the whole to go home, but after qnarrel
