some elg'it or ten milos from Duluth. tho wooded range

?lally unite? with the rlsim*; land south of the St. Louis,
forcing the river Is break Us way down from the level of
the great central tableland, of which these apparent

Mississippi road is obliged to uveii-onio lu a distance of
some ton or twelve miles.
Tl.ia is ?be Iii ?t appro.ich to really flue scenery which

mowin?;. Ki-, n tho stony hill-sid s were covered with
i nil rlusteis of wild timothy grass, ami such general
.t;? in ia ii i? -of wa eds that the excellence of the soil cannot
!..- mistakn. I notice this fact as a matter of duty, but
my memory naturally recalls those delightful pictures of
bins in nimshinc, glens lu shad >w, lone; ladders of rocks
uni tumbling forma of water. This Is to be the futuro
inter pesant of I lulu! h. tiri ung woolen-mills, and rolling
mills, and all tin? varied manufacture which the y cars

At Thomson, near the head of the Dalles, there i? a
great mass of the finest slate n?ek, which Is already quar?
ried on a small seale. The lamina? aro as smooth and uni?
form BB so many sheets of pasteboard. While we halted
lo BOMBIme ?he specimens, I drank from a delicious min
era! spring, with a strong flavor of iron. Here we crossed
Hu? St.-Iioui.?. and wont rapidly forwards through level
forest? lo the Junction when' tlie I.. 8. and M.Koad tunis
southw.?ni, w i.ile the North Pacific continues its course
ii'-iti!.? du?- w.stwardly- to the Mississippi. We traveled
rapidly , as, | imagine, all trains must, over this portion
?f the road. For anything more dreary, more monoto?
nous, more utterly wearisome to behold, cannot be imag?
ined. -Mandat mile of ragged, ugly, stunted forest,
st- nding in its own rot and ruin, ouly varied, now and
then, by reedy, stagnant-looking jmioIs or lakes, which
had (?io effect of blasting the trees nearest to them.
Much of the trat k is baaed ou piles, and all of it is deeply
in? bed ii tie- si le-. :n oin 1er to seeuro a tolerably firm
ruad-bnd. The only agreeable tiling we saw was a ?>ed .
if wbiti'poiil-liiitiH In blossom. I could not hi'lp think?

Tin? region of swamp and stunted forest extends for a
listauoe of seventy or taghtj miles?a water-shed like
?hose o,' Uu.-ia or Lapland. Where the streams begin to
fall toward the Miriissippi the country beoomes dry and
ip. ii ; anil then follow?, after crossing that river, ?onie
,1 the tlnost fanning land in Hie world. We varied the
'loiiototiy a little by running through two or three
?oorehlng forest fire?, and Anally halted at a station
tiled Hu otu-, wbeii- the pines grow on mounds of sand
?iel ween the belts of swamp. This was between thirty
ind forty miles from the Junction. There wa? a lunch
already prepared lu u capacious shanty, ami while we
satoyed the roast luacf and corn and lager-beor, one of
ne on,], '.yes "f the company played upon the violin aud
| -uni;? in the clearest and atmngont of voices. Our
.Hirn enabled ni to give no more cheerful report of tilla
,'itot swamp scenery, we were heartily glad when we
i-mi rea, bed the Junction. Hut this, probaltly the
eo-t ?lilli ult portion of tin? North Pacific Hoad, is well
nid substantially- built, and much of the marsh will
?h.billi? iii.?.nipear as the forests an? olearod away.
The Lils?* Superior aud Mississippi Road passe? for
?any miles through an equally monotonous, though
non- sandy and better-timbered region. In the after
ii.ol, we icached III nekloy-, nain ai after the excellent
I-i??si,lent of the riiiliid? Iphia and ?altimore Hoad. The
little* elu?t< r of ?baillies suggests uothiug of the reiliie
in-tit ami culture which that gentleman's friends asio

mr ?ay along the borders of that sandy region of St.
"roll pineries, which gave the lion. Mr. Knott an op
?MMtuuit.v of making nome gorgeous Kentucky fun, and
y innocently defeating the plain of his own
friends. There was a bigger Joke in the latter clpcuni
stam e than in anything he uttered. By a transition so
?i.idual that its stages were barely perceptible, we
pass-'d into au open, slightly-rolling country, with groves
of oak. anil then carno, at last, the evidences of sottlc
iin-tit. A fence is not, te-ithetically. an attractive object,
i.ut tlii-re wn? a general expression of delight when tile

W, had a welcome Sunday's rent in St. Paul, each

ali artiae strengthened for the resumption of our duties
on Mou'lay morning. The day -sas given to Miuiie?ipo
lis ami its inv non.-, and the duty aarniuied the form of
pleasure. On arriving, we found carriages waiting, and
a programme arranged which we were able lo carry out,
ni ?pite of sultry shower?. First, we visited the immense
n?w mills, which annually produce lumlter of the value
?if ?5,000,000 ; and I found, to my Inextinguishable regret
?a nuh, not being a Minneupolitati. I cannot overcome)
that tbe lieautiful Falls of St- Anthony have been sacri

tu.-m no more, but, several hundrod yarda further up

We drove to Minnehaha during a pause between the
showers. Here there is a vory fair water power, which
has not boon used After a while Minneapolis will
stroteh down lu that direction, aud tho gorge will b?
lOBd np hy an Immense manufacturing establishment,
with tho cascade ?Irlving Its huge wheels. Minnehaha is
the lucklost waterfall in the world ; It has achieved moro
renown on a smaller capital of performance than any
other I ever saw. Norway has a thousand nameloes falls
of greater bight and beauty ; Ithaca, New-York, has two
score, only tooally known; but this pretty, unpretending
tuuiblo of less than s hundred feet Is celebrated all over
the world. 'Wi.ro is a great deal in luck ; as every sudden
favorite of the public discovers In the course of time.
Minneapolis and .St. Paul are bitler rivals, nnd will ho
so?bclng?o near and so nearly balanoed in importance?
until ?ne or Hie other gain? an insurmountable ascend?
ency. There is certainly moro industry in Minneapolis,
and moro wealth In St. Paul?more llfo in the former,
more ?tunfort in the latter. I boro speak of the impres?
t-ion drawn from external features. In the Nicollct House
our party hiw found such quarters as mako the farther

when I sow the lUuo velvet and carvod walnut of my

Our cordial gue*e of tho place gave us a dinner, and

Rkd Kivkr ok the North, July So*.? We
found a ?pei ?al tram in readiness, yesterday morning, to
carry us over the Bt. Paul and Pacifie Road. (!ov.
Au-tin,Secretary Pusey, Editor Wheelock, and a few
other welcome addition? to onr party had already ar
rlv4?d from 8L FauL After the ralu of the preceding day.
the ?ky promised a return to lu uniform brightness and
purity, and in a few hour? we had traveled inte ?nnshine.
The belt of ?varefully-farmed country around Minneapolis
is -till iu.rri-.M-. but it baa all tho charm of an older
ri'gion. The tracts of timber are oonstantly interrupted
hv little lakes, from one to throe milos in extent ; ondit
is remarkable how a farm house ami a few groin field?
givo to each of thone an air of long-established cultiva?
tion and comfort. Lake Minnetunka, 15 or 90 mile? from
Minneajiolls, is a eharmingsheot of water, about 25 mile?
long, but with ?o muny Indented arms and hoys that it
has a shore line of nearly 200 miles. There Is here a Hum?
mer lioteL a little projK'llor for excursions,, and a few
sail-boats for n-lnng parties. **?o caught delightful
glimpses?but only glimpse??!n passing. Then the coun?
try gradually BBaaflBB wilder and lonelier, the farm? of
ruder a?i?*ct, und the village? few and far apart. The
forests were wholly of deciduous trees, principally oak,
maille, and elm. The farmer! were in?niauy oasei cutting
the natural meadow and prairie grass for bay. Tho ex?
treme drynes? of the season enables tbem to mow great
tra? te of ni n .-li land which are usually lost to thom, aud
thus, although gras* is such a i>oor crop, the supply of
hay will not fall short of that of other year?.
The St. Faul and Paclflo Road Is now lu running order
to Morris, 16S mile? from Minneapoll?. When we had
made nearly half the distance, we ran out of the weeded,
rolling region, upon an open prairie country, veiv rich
and nearly lev?!, wnlrh is remarkably like **m Ixst j*>r
tlonsof the Platte Valley. The sun ?hone bright and
warm on the vast, green, softly undulating tpuces; Iho
woodlands shrank Into lilan.Is and long eap?'s of a darker
green, and the houses of the settler? became moro ?caree
than ever. Speeding through those plain? al the rate of
30 mile? an hour, we did not find them monotonous; but
two or tbrej" gentlemen who had perched themselves on
the cow-catcher, and were unable te get 4?ff for a Mietet
or 40 mile?, lost their hate and very .neatly Un-ir hair.
They assured us that they had ??? u a deesa pint ers, un

After a number of first faint effort? at town?, we
reached Litchfield, aged two yours, and already grown
into sonic large frame buildings, an elegant hotel, und
leoo lota. While the train halted, I made the nrqualnt
unce of a tiorwegian member of the Minnesota Legisla?
ture, who was fully American in hil faith and exp.-i ta
tiona He announced a largs and continuous Scandina?
vian emigration to this region. After an experience of
fifteen years, the Northern element may be considered
as not only a successful but o highly importan! addition
to our population. The Swedes and Norwegians leam
and adapt IBemaelv?*! to our State and county organiza?
tion more readily than oa en the (o? nun?. I um glad t>.
i,ml them a? bright and simple-hi arl.-d and conu-nt.-d

them the seed of a grund race of men and women.
We -seeni'd to haie enured on the Great Plain?. Mile
after milo of groen prairie land, grove after grove of
timber, sometimes lifted as our water by a mir.ige,
passed by, and the settlements weit) left behind. The
little < luster of bon-.-* called Houmiu was tho terminus
of the road a few week? auo, hut now we are carried 25
miles futthei, to Moni*, which l8 only six months old.
There is here a chance of town lots to whomsoever l>e

settlemcnia, Tho air r?M?ai_e_ratefiilly cool, almost cold,
moonlight BjlTcrofl the lakes, and the prairie flowers be
carne sweeter as the dew fell. Finally, at 10 o'oloek, a
dirk knoll, with two tents upon ltastd-?,ro-??l?*.f??r*?iia,and
wo halted at our own camp, On one ?Ido there was a
l?ond. full of reeds and water lilli?*; " ?mudgea " wem
burning most misjncloasly before the tent ,b>nrs and
smoke of no Arabian odor rose In volumes from behind
an immense manure heap on the knoll. Here there was
an old stockade f.irt, with several log honans Inside, all
the space filled with smoke, and suggesting pig?, fl?a;is,
intiskctoes, and dirt.
(Inly six or eeveu years ago there was murder here,
and throughout all this region. The stockade was
erected after the Indian massacre, and?sitme the Sloui
have all boen drivon beyond K?ad River?will nover be
needed again, lint there se. nn-d to me to Ik* no necessity
for the woeds and tilth, the neglect which Imitated ruin,
alioiit the nlaoe. Had a single tree Im-oii planted lieforo
the door, I should hare a kinder memory of Pomme de
Terre. We waltzed long for supper, In a room filled -sith
smudge smoke, lint the meal was ample and not un
akUlOilly prepaiod, whou we wena finally called to it ;
only the water was detestable, having such a flavor of
black mud that It tuluted tho tea und coffee.
The mea sent In advance by our new lender, Col.
Hazard, had everything In roediticsa. A touche of
prairie hay, covered with double blankets, promised a
capital slumber ; but. alas! every puff of air brought up
fnun the pond a multitude of tormentors, who |peuo
truted tbe " smudge," defied the tobacco odors of the
iulerlor, gnawed through the liags of netting Into which
wo had thrust our heads, and murdered sleep In the
vilest manner. The night was tilled, not only ivitb their
music, but with the groans and sighs of their victims.
Thor*? was no difficulty In killing them; they were so
unacquainted willi man that they settled upon our nosoa
aud ears with s shocking tameness, and held still to bo
crushed. Tiley carne in quin lettes, and. one hehir ?lain,
the surrivors screnadod us with a trio. Some Samaritan,
toward morning, looped up the tent-covers and let the
strong, cool wind blow over un ; but they lui Idled against
It like an Indian against u rapid, und the dawn dually
scattered ils, but not there.
Something of the Ano edge of our I iilnyinctrt was taken
off when wo left Pomme do Terre this morning. Tlie
hunters and fishers rushed away entliu.slastic.illy before
breakfast, to return with drngglod trow sers and blastod
hopes; yct^wcsoon forgot the*? and all the miseries of
the night in rolling over the fair, br<<-zy landscapes,
which here divide the waters of Hudson's Hay and the
Oulf of Mexico. The Pomme de Terre River turns south?
ward nnil Joins the Minnesota, while only IA miles to the
north Is the Otter Tail, tho main branch of Rod River.
Tim region between (?.miel unos called " Hlght of I?and ")
gradually subsides from tho plcluresque rolling, lako
iloited prairie into a dead, apparently endless, 1? yoi-a
black loam of wonderful richness, resting ou a deep olay
subsoil, In which water is very scarce. This plain ox
tajuds on both sides of Red River for 'iii or 10 miles, and
northward to the frontier, a distance of more ii.an a?)
Onrnoon half wa? at ni I rrossing on the fitter Till,
vi,, to theie is a ferry, a station, ni, ! some that? hod

Hero the Sioux murdered three of tho early sctUers,
which may possibly lie the reason why tho gardnn is a
wilderness of wild sunflowers, why no tree has been
pinn,ed near the hoiiso, and no attempt made to beautify
or even cleanse the repulsive rouglmcns and ?habniiicns
Of li lir.-t ?el I ?Clin ni.
The afternoon wa? very hot and dusty, and the great
plain, hounded on the west by the advancing und re
reding timber hm-s of Red River, lH?camo at lael simply
wearisome. Weall rejoiced when the mage trail, after
skirting some fields of oats and wheat, turned luto olio
groves and willow thicket?, and drew up t>e*ore a civil?
ized house, which provod to be Mr. No1.".n'a tavern, Bl
Mai aulayville, opposite Fort Abercrombie. A few stores
and saloon?, but most of all the ??rand old elms, almost
persuaded us that we bad ?onie ba'k to old settlement.
Welcouit wa< the eight ,,f a 1,,,::?!,,.,,1 of clean water, lu
which floated a lump ot ice, two fett thick ; and welcome
