Correspondence of the Ohio Union.
Letten from MinnesotaNo. 2.
BY ROLAN DO.
St. Anthony, May 9, 1802.
Not wishing longer to intrude on your
patience, and (hat of your readers, my
dear Knapp, I closed my last epistle rather
abruptly ; and lest that letter reaches Min
nesota, and some of my friends think I
have made invidious distinctions between
that truly, lovely and advantageously loca
ted spot, All Saints, and other localities
in Minnesota, I have resolved to jot down
my opinion of the various towns in the
territory; so that persons desirous of au
thentic information in regard.lo this region
can have it, by subscribing for your paper.
For I have not yet written, nor do I intend
to write i word in praise of Minnesota
that will not bear the strictest scrutiny.
My letters may therefore be believed.
First then, is St. Paul, the Capitol of the
territory, and whose population is 3000;
which nature has lavished her choices!
blessings in the richest profusion; and art
is now improving these, as fast as possible.
The town since I have lived in Minnesota,
has more than doubled itself in population;
and when the holders of property learn to
ask a reasonable price for their lots this
place will, like magic, grow into one of
the most important commercial points on
the Mississippi. Among its most promi
nent citizens, I will now only mention
Henry M. Rice, Esq., Charles II. Oakes
Esq., Dr. Bowp, C. S. Milles, Esq., (for
merly of Cleveland,) and R. R. Nelson,
Esq., son of Chief Justice Nelson, of New
York. To the exertions of Mr. Rjco,
mainly, has St. Paul attained her present
position. Free-hearted and enterprising,
has been the means of raising many whom
misfortune had cast down ; and his dis
interestedness has reared for him a monu
ment ; more enduring llun braBs, in the
hearts of the masses. A radical democrat, he
is a terror to monopolists, and il is this fact
thai has made the Fur Company, wilh its
sattellites pursue him with such unholy
ferocity. His character haa been assailed
his credit attacked, and his honesty call
ed in question ; yet has he wiilmtood all;
and is now in the zenith of his triumph
over mercenary enemies. Messrs. Oakes
and Bowp, are hroihers-in-law, the latter
the head of the Fur Company, against the
former, the voice of defamation and ca-
umny, Jure not be raised he is respected
by all. Being heavy capitalists and much
interested therein, these gemle men have
built up what is known as the "lower lown,"
and llicy have done much to enhance the
importance of the capital. They arc
whig!, or people's men," Mr. C. H.
Milles, is a young lawyer of good qualifi
cations, and is desiiued at no distant day
lo loom out brilliamly in his profrssion.
Last, though by no means the least im
portant in my list comes R. It. Nelson,
Esq., of whom I fear to speak, for I love
him as a broihcr. His very faults in my
eyes it laull sue has, seem virtues. Dis
interested, honorable and high minded, he
scorns the low inlriguings of the sordid,
and would prefer retirement, in virtue ; lo
doing a dishonorable act to attain eminence.
He is now one of the first lawyers of the
territory. A democrat, from an in bred
sense of correctness of the principles of the
parly ; he has now (he regard of all sound
democrats of all but the mercenary and
time-serving; and when Minnesota shall
become a Slate, I predict Mr. Nelson, will
be one of her first United States (Senators.
So much for St. Paul.
Next in importance is St. Anthony,
which town is eight miles from St. Paul
and contains 1500 inhabitants, and is des
tined to be to Minnesota, in conjunction
with All Saints what Lowell is to Mass
achusetts ; and I am rejoined in be able to
inform your readers that the cloud which
haa for the past two years, obscured lite
prosperity of this place has nt last been
removed, 'and ils sun is now glowing forth
in all ils Wonted warmlh and beauty. Un
til within l few days past, a warrantee
Deed could not be given purchasers of
property on account of a difficulty be
tween one of the proprietors of the lown,
Mr. Taylor, and the balance of litem, Mr.
T. has al last come to terms sold out his
interest and all is now going on charming-
The Falls of St. Anthony, the only Falls
in the whole length of the Mississippi, are
some seven miles above the junction of
of the Mississippi and St. Peter's rivers.
The Falls are in 44 30' north latitude.
An island about 450 yards long divides
the Mississippi into two parte at the Falls
of St. Anthony, which have a very irregu
lar outline, owing to the soft sandstone be
ing washed out unequally in places, and
the superincumbent strata of limestone I ail
ing down in large blocks ) these ire piled
op in great quantities on the bed of the ri
ver immediately at the foot of the Falls.
OHIO, WEDNESDAY, MAY 1852.
That part of the river on the north side of
the island, is about two hundred and twen
ty yards in width. There is a very fine(
smooth section of rocks to ihe water, about
90 feet high. I should think the Fall would
not average more tharl 60 feet high. The
immense slabs which have fallen from the
limestone beds at the top, are covered wilh
producla, mixed wilh spirifers and eardia.
On the south side of the river, the line of
the Falls measures about 450 yards to the
island. It is a wild rocky, scene, and to
ihe geologist, is exceedingly interesting,
finding here the uninterrupted continuation,
for one thousand miles, of the carbonifer
ous limestone, wilh ils characteristic fossils,
at the south side of the falls."
The inhabitants of Si. Anthony are an
industrious, enterprising people, mostly
from Maine, their motto onward. If I
were allowed to judge, from my short resi
dence among them, I should say ihey were
extremely hospitable and kind ; caring in
finitely more for Ihe true man than for
those made by the tailors. All accord to
Franklin Steele, Esq., the credit of being
the most enterprising citizen of this place.
He is to St. Anthony, what H. M. Rice,
Esq. is to St. Paul. Mr. S. is naturally
a democrat. But being the brother-in-law
of our present Representative in Congress,
lie has for the nonce doffed his old party
and gone the "People's ticket. " I am told,
however, he is heartily tired of this; and
I think, ere long I shall have the satisfac
tion of informing your readers that ho has
returned to his first love. Capl. John Rol
lins, John II. Gairns, G. W. North, Isaac
ATnaler, Esq., together with Jno. G. Len
now, Esq., may be reckoned among the
prominent men of St. Anthony.
Next comes SlrHwater ; which is located
some twenty mites from Ft. Paul ; and is
quite a lively lillle village of eight hundred
inhabitants. Fur its size it has i good
business going on there which is yearly
increasing. Among its prominent men are
Maj. Van Vorhcs, Regester of Land of
fice, and formerly of Ohio, Jonathan Mc
Kurich, Michael E. Ames, Esq., and Jesse
Taylor. This place offers good induce
ments lo the mechanic.
Mendota, five miles from St. Paul.is the
name of a trading port at the junction of
the Mississippi and St. Pelers rivers; and
will make a point of importance one day.
It is on the Military Reserve, and of
course, until that is raised will not improve.
Here is the residence of Hon. II. M. Sib
ley, our Delegate in Congress ; Maj. N.
McLean, formerlyjof Oliio,p(who by ihe
hye, is a brother of Hon. John McLean,
of your State,) Sioux Indian Agenl; and
as Ihe Forl-Snelling is located here, litis
village in the residence of F. Steele, Esq,;
elsewhere mentioned in this epistle; who
is Sultler of this Maiion. Although I do
not like ihe political position Mr.Sibley
now, occupies il being that of neither
whig or democrat, bill hermaphroditic, or
either lo suit circumslancen yet I believe
he has performed his trust, in Congress, as
well as any man, that is not a parly man
could do. It is to be regretled as he
claims lo be "a Jefferson Democrat," that
he opposes the drawing of party lines
that ho is ihough.perAayH, unintentional
ly playing into Ihe hands of the whigs. It
is true the Democracy did not use him as
ihey should have done in 1819; when
they imported Col. A. M. Mitchell, here ;
who ever has been a rabid whig; and run
him against Sibley for Delegate. Had 1
been here I should(certainly have gone for
Mr. S. however much be disliked the
course his parly, or a portion of them took
in this matter, I think if he is at heart a
democrat, he would not be "bluffed" out
in that way ; and I think when certain
would-be leaders, who have more zeal
than sense, treat him with that consider
ation he is entitled lo, he will return to ihe
fold. In the formation of a party, com
poeed of-ihe elements", ours here is from
all sections of the country my mono is
concilliation to attract and draw to our
ranks, rather than by coldness, and ihe
exercise of an arbitrary 'disposition, re
pel and drive away those who have it in
their power to be of much service.
Bui, fur fear of wearying your patience-
I will hasten to a close. Before I do so
however, permit me lo hope that ihe mem
be re of Congress from Ohio, will unani
mnusly lend their aid to ihe passage of
Senator Douglas' Bill for ihe raising of ihe
Military Reserve of Forl-Snelling. The
bill, as introduced meets the sanction of
our entire population, and should pass in
In my next, t will endeavor to point out
the advantages this territory presents to
persons wishing to " travel out West."
Until ihen farewell.
