RAILROAD COMPIiBTBD TO SAINT
First Train, Saturday, Sept. 1st, 1866.
Last Saturday witnessed the arrival at
the depot on the east side of the Mississip
pi, directly opposite St. Cloud, of the first
passenger train on the St. Paul and St.
Cloud Railroad. The ears.' reached their
destination at half past twelve o'clock,
with a small excursion party, embracing
the officers of the road, Senator Ramsey,
Judge Nelson, Mayor Prince, State Audi
tor Mcllrath, representatives of the St.
Paul press, and a few others—about twenty
in all. Owing to a misunderstanding with
regard to the time when the train should
arrive, but three St. Cloud people were
present, Messrs. Gorton, Sweet and Greg
ory, who, however, did the honors of the
ocoasion. The party remained but a short
time, when they returned to Big Lake,
where a fine collation had been prepared
by that famous St. Paul caterer, Jo. Hall.
Regular trains are now running over the
road, one train per day—arriving at noon
and leaving in a half an hour afterwards.
Freight trains will be put on next week
and about the 15th inst., two daily passen
ger trains will arrive and depart.
Geo. F. Brott to Enter Lower Town.
The matter of title in Lower St. Cloud,
which has for many years been a vexed
question, seems likely soon to come to a
final settlement. A letter was received by
the officers ef the Land Office at this place,
from the Commissioner of the General Land
Office, under date of August 22d, directing
that the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad Com
pany and the Governor of the State be re
quired to file in the General Land Office a
relinquishment to these lands, viz: Lots 1,
2, 3 and 4, and SW NW and NW SW
\, Section 13, Township 124, Range 28,
being all of Lower Town. If they fail to
file this relinquishment within sixty days,
Mr Brott shall nevertheless "be permitted
to enter all that portion of said tracts which
does not conflict with the rights of other
parties." This decision is rendered under
the provisions of an Act of Congress ap
proved May 26th, 1860, entitled "An Act
for the relief of George F. Brott."
We congratulate the people of Lower
Town upon the final settlement of this trou
blesome matter. Mr. Brott is now in Wash
ington, and will probably soon arrive here.
FROM FISH'S EXPEDITION.
In last week's paper, we republished
from the St. Paul Pioneer a letter written
that paper by a member of the Fisk Expe
dition from Fort Union, in which a flaming
account was given of trouble with the In
dians. We are permitted to copy the fol
lowing extracts from a letter written by
Mr. C. F. Sims, of this city, by which it
be seen that the Pioneer's account was
