St. Anthony, May 10, 1852.
Again, old friend, have I taken my pen
in hand, fur the purpose of giving you
another letter. In my bit I spoke of our
principal (owns, and of our prominent citi
zens. In this I promised to treat on the
advantages Minnesota possesses over the
the balance of the great West, and the in
ducements there are- for farmers and me
chanics to locate here. My opinions are
given after nearly two years experience,
and are deliberately and honestly formed,
If a man wishes to succeed in Minneso

termination to do so; and not to be (lis
heartened and discouraged because he has

ing, and ever keeping in mind the fact
that this is a new country. That sociely
is just forming. That many of the things
which he now thinks indispensable to his
npniness, must be entirely given up. If
any of your readers have thought of env
barking hither, and have not "made up
their minds" on these points they had
belter remain where they are ; for we want
mm here: natures nobility. Such men
as the poet describes when he sings :
11 The noblest men I know on earth,
Are men whose bands are brown with toil,
Who, backed by no ancestral graves,
Hew down the woods snd till the soil,
Aud win thereby a prouder tame
Thon follows king or warrior's name." ,
I feel confident that the Sioux Treaty
has been ratified, as I received a teller from
prominent Democratic Senator, tinder
dale April 21, which give the gratifying
intelligence that the Senate Committee had,
the day previous reported in favor thereof
and that there was no question of their
The ratification of these Treaties will
form an epoch in the history of Minneso
la. Notwithstanding, the doubt that ex
isted in reference thereto, thousands of
pioneers are on the ground waiting froiiii tit

and claim the promised land. A land

If any of my old friends from any part of
Ohio or any of iVifir friends think of
coming out here; my advice is come ut

much by postponing it another season
Any assistance in my power to render yon

All you will have to do is lo enquire fur

Having an engagement to fill this even
ing, I have culled the following exlracls
from tho Pioneer, in regard to this Terri
tory, in lie of writing lurlher. , Prefacing
llie quotations with the remark thai I en
dorse them, fully:
The whole world cannot produce a cli
mate inure salubrious than that of iMinne
sola. We have never yet known a case
of (ever and apiio in ii; nor any unwhole

or streams, i'j for our cool, healthful

tut, flint we regard niinnesoia incomparably
superior to any oilier new hiute or lcrrt
torv in North America, Thoy may raise
more corn in Illinois, more wool in Ohio,
more pork in Iowa, more cotton in Mis
sissippi; but Minnesota can beat ihem all
in raising men. lu our coldest weafher,
when the mercury congeals, men perform
as much labor out of doors, as at any lime
in the year. 1 he air is then bi ill ns-dcath
llie smoke from the chimneys fills lo
the ground every human boily creates
around itself an atmosphere of warmth.
The stillness and dryness of the atmos
phere and the vigorous htalih we enjoy,
account for the coinforlablo enjoyment
here, of a degree of cold that would be
intolerable in Si, Louis.
We have hut litlle farminff yet in our
Territory; but we have more and belter
inducements lor that business tliaa any
other country can boast.
1st. A belter climate; in which the la
bor of one man, will produce more, yield
a larger surplus above his own necessities,
than any othor Western Stale or Territory
can boast of. We have none of the lan
guor and debility and agues, that turn mvn
into feeble women, in the harvest field, as
they have eon ill of us. Labor, here,
stands up firmly on its legs, the year round,
and drives things through.
2d. We have as (food land it is use
less to say better but as good as there is
in the world. For fertility, Cottage Grove
prune, or the whole valley of Hie Mm
nefoia river, or the valley of the Red river
of the North cannol be beat; yes, we
undertake to say that al Pembina, in lati
tude 40, North, they ran raise as sound
corn, and as much per acre, as can be
raised any where on the Wabash. Now,
if our readers are not going to believe us,
let them stop short here ; for we ire pro
pared to make a wager, thai we will raise
areer and better crops, in Minnesota, acre
for acre, of any or all ciopa ever cultivated
in that State, than can be raised in Illinois.
Minnesota abounds in lakes. Between
the St. Croix and the Mississippi, they
seem to bo innumerable, and they are also
plenty west of the Mississippi. I heir
hores are chietiy or gravel or pebbles,
and usually one or the other side of the
ake, is covered with a growth ol Umber.
The water ia ralhet shallow, clear, cool
nd entirely desiuute of the qualities of
the boggy marshes and sloughs ol tne
South ; many of the lakes are covered
wuh wild rice and are alive with water
fowl. Frequently, the lake opens at one
end into a lamaraC swamp, filled with
young tainaracs, (a tree resembling the
spruce,) hs thick as they can stand.

ses out into another, basin, a little less ele
vated, which it fills, and make another
ake; and thus there is Wtned, often, a
succession of many lakes, conneclcd by a
spring stream that runs through them all.
We might say something of the admira
ble oaks and rock maples and black wal
nuts found in the Big Woods; which for
various purposes of manufacture, will be
of immense value if the irade of Minneso
ta; but we will nqw write only of pine
lumber. Formerly, we had our doubts as
to the great extent uf our pineries. Now,
ave no dutibl. As yet our lumber
men only go up Rtim River, a tributary ol
the Mississippi, but a few miles above bt.
Anihnny, lying between the Mississippi
and the Si. Croix. From that region comes
merely the pine ot the St. Uroix and ol
Mississippi. Uul, far above Kum river,
are oilier tributaries of the Mississippi and
80 miles of solid pine limber on the shores
of the Mississippi, itself, below Pokegamon
rails, in the (;hippewa country, and many
unexplored tributaries besides, properly in
the pine region ; so thai centuries will
hardly exhaust the pineries above us. We
are ashamed that we ever distrusted Pro
vidence, or suspected that our munificent
Maker, could have left two thousand miles
of feriilo prairies flown the river, without
an adequate supply of pine lumber at the
sources of the river, to make these plains
There are many saw mills on the Saint
Croix four saws al Si. Anthony propelled
by water and lour al Si. Paul propelled
by steam. Sawing is far the best business
doing in St. Paul. The logs delivered
hero cost less than mere stumpage in Maine;
and yel lumber sells very high and much
beyond what out mills can supply, is rait
ed or hauled from St Anthony. It would
pay well, to put up 40 good steam saw
mills, now, in Sn Paul. -If any surplus of
lumbar were made, it could be taken to a
market below, in the firm of shingles, lath
ing, planed flooring and siding. We want,
here, a patent wooJen-ware factory, large
enough to supply the trade of the whole
river, down to New Orleans. Come what
nay, lumbering cannot fail, unless the

It is hard to answer the question, what
is your population composed of? The
people who consiiluled Minnesota, when
it was organized, were a majority of them
Canadians, voyaeurs and their families,
and half and quarter and eighth and six
teenth breed Indians, running through the
whole gamut of colors, from llie dusky
Indian lo the lair Scotchman ; and these
people arc slill in Minnesota, quiet, good
people, though not all as intelligent and
energeiio as ihe scheming Yankee. They
are lit ing all over the. Territory, on boih
sides of the river, where our Organic Act
found ihem, and gave them the political
rights they so highly enjoy. Such is their
attachment to our ling and our Govern
ment, that no where could volunteers be
more readily raised, than amongst ilium,
lo fijjht our battles. Since the dale of the
Organic Act, setllers from all purls have
come in from Ihe East, the Middle, and
the South. However divided upon oilier
questions, there is not and will not be in
Minnesota, any disposition lo stiller any
infringment whatuver, upon tho righli uf
any and all Ihe Stales or the Union, to
manigo their own domestic aluirs.

many bass and pickerel as you want. In
Ihe river, riehl before the door of the Pio

but also the wall-eyed pike, 4 most delicious

abounds, varying in size from five inches
to two pounds, lint it is idle lor a novice
