SOME CLASSES OF PEOPLE WHO GO THERE—

GOLDEN OPPORTUNITIES IN THE TERRITORIES
FOR PERSONS WITHOUT CAPITAL.
Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.
Of all the emigrants that yearly
pass over the Union Pacific for
points along that railroad, through
out the lerrrtones or the Pacific
Coant, fully one-third of the males
return East in less than two years.
Various causes have' been assigned
tor tins; but the main one is, their
aspirations are almost always greater
How tS.make rinonev Afast, and
with the least possible labor, is the
great question at present, with our
people. , . Alter speculations, bad in
vestments, and poor management.
have depleted the purses of the East,
me victim rusnes ior the vv est
thinking that his tricky business edu
cation, learned by bitter experience,
will give him employment where be
can turn it to good account. He ex
pects to meet ignorant, half-civilized
men,, eager Jind ready; -to turn over
their money o him Mor-mvestment,
and ask his advice in every matter
of business. Instead of this, much
to his surprise, he finds the moneved
men of the plains fully his equal in
anything .requiring sharp practice,
and much his superior when it comes
to long-headed calculations as to
whether or not something will turn
out a paying transaction. He sees
himself surrounded by men in buck-
a ii , ,
smu sung ana cow-niae Doots, who
always take their whisky straight,
curse ioua and deep when they feel
like it, and often 'tfghtjhejjiger'jlo
the tune of thousands, and still hav e
always enongh to stock a rauche or
open a gold mine; men whose simple
word is better than thi irsnnds of
contracts, "signed, sealed and deliv
ered,", and whose every action is
ope,' honest and reliableV " In com
pany like this our emigrant sees at
onue that all his fine expectations are
ended in smoke, and so he hurries
back to the East with the ' excuse
that the climate was too severe; the
people too rough f and, in fact, is is
not half so good a place to make
money. as one would suppose;;.
"There is another class, younger in
years, but more numerous, consisting
chiefly of young professional men,
mining experts, book-keepers" and
clerks. Jt has been well and truly
said, that many parents prefer to see
their sons selling shoes over a coun
ter for $6 a week, than have them
learn the trade, and earn $18 bv
making them. It is this
K 1) i !. i . -
that makes thr-majority of our fast
young men, and furnishes many in
mates for our penitentiaries. After
an imperfect and superficial educa
tion, the youth finds himself in the
ofiice of eome "eminent advocate."
Here he remains a couple of years
skimming over books in which he
finds neither interest or pleasure. At
the end of that time lie has no trou
ble in passing a so-called examina
tion, and receives authority to go
forth to - prosecute or defend, al
though ju these latter days, he is apt
to know more about beer than briefs.
The West is chosen as the best field
in which to display his talents; his
carpet-bag is packed and some place
fixed upon for settlement, which, if
land-speculator's reports are to be
relied on must surely rival New
York City in a few years. On his
arrival, how great must be his dis
appointment when he finds it noth
ing but a mining-camp or railroad
station, with houses few and far be
tween, interspersed with tents and
dug-outs. ". "Early as he may put in
an appearance, he will be apt to find
from three to a dc zen of his legal
fraternity ahead of bim. He hangs
out his shingle but waits in vain for
clients. There being but littlo prop
erty, every man knows )m own with
out the assistance of the law. Quar
rels are settled on the spot result
ing often In the death of both par
ties; where only one falls, the coro
ner's jury always exonerates the
othi-r in a verdict "That if he
hadn't killed him, he'd been killed."
Criminals are invited to a "dance ou
wtldirgj". surd - iirtrg i -t trouble,
rily arises from a legal trial, are
saved the county. Our young limb
of the law sees with dismay that
there is no call for his advice; he
finds living expensive; his money
giving out, and nothing being done
towards another supply; as he has no
inclination for manual labor, his pa
tience becomes soon exhausted, and
he returns to the East.
The experience of a
differs little from this, except that
he stands a better chance to make
enough to support him in decency,
if he is something of a surgeon, and
understands the treatment cf shot
wounds, knife-cuts and bruises. He
will find but little else to claim his
attention, as the country is blessed
with a remarkably healthy climate.
THE MINING EXPERTS
are astonished to hundreds of
illiterate men who know far more
about mines than they with all their
theoretical education; aud that a
rough but practical prospector will
be first depended on in all questions
of mineralogy, although he knows
nothing of ages or strata, for his ed
ucation has been gained, not from
books, but from experienced pur
chased at the price of long years of
patient, constant digging. He can
not mystify by throwing out a lot
of technical phrases, but lie can con
verse.soundly on lodes, veins; dips
and spurs; and, if any situation be
open, he will receive the preference!
While such men as this are so plenti
ful, is it aiiy wonder college-made
scientific characters are at a dis
count? : ! ;
i Hut the most "npmexpus, by iar, of
this second class of immigrants, are
the many who rush for the Far West
with the expectation of finding situ

the scarcity and high cost of trans

have tried it that it is more than ex

scarcity of lumber, it costs more to
build a good log ranche and fence a
few acres, than it would take to buy
a good sized farm, partially cultivat
ed and with 6ome improvements,
east of the Missouri. Men used to
productive fields and l mining
streams cannot take kindly to bar
ren tracts, scarcity of water, and
short seasons, where irrigation keeps
them constantly employed, and they
then find that, for all their time, la
bor and expense, they have but
about one-third - of an eastern har
vest. ' It is true that sometimes a
few passable acres are found near a
miuing-camp, whose proper cultiva
tion enriches the owner; but such
are the exceptions, as a mining re
gion is seldom an agricultural one.
Colonies fare no better than indi
viduals; and those best known, and
with the greatest names, are no ex
ceptions. Owing to the high price
of labor, and the enormous sum ne-oesi-ary
for the proper irrigation of
their lands, it will be same years lie

than a poor prospect for a fanner

being a part owner in, and a slave

The wages paid to laborers in mines
averages from 12 to 3 per day, and
it is only men who thoroughly un

DWELLINGS AND CHURCHES IN ICELAND.
The lack of lime in Iceland refers
house builders to lumber, for which
there is cheap transportation from
Norway. Hence wooden houses,
and as tar is abundant and a pre
servative of wood, many of the
houses are tarred, and thereby are
blacks like the crows "as black
can be," which is dismal as any
thing. The houses in the country are the
most characteristic habitations. I
do not risk much in saying that they
are all alike that is to say, the
churches are all of one pattern and
the farm-houses of another patern.
Each is of its kind not altogether
lovely, and the kind is perfectly de
fined. The church is built wholly
of wood and tarred. It is as black
as the spot on the ace of clubs, and
right over the door there is a little
black . knob, varying from ten to
twenty feet in height, and passes
for the spire. Inside is an altar op
posite the door, adorned with can
dles and pictures, representing some
of the sufferings of Christ, and on
the right hand side of the door, and
two-thirds .of the way to the altar,
is the pulpit. - The room i for the
people is carefully divided into pews
which are numbered boxes. viThe
church, as all the books of travelers
in Iceland state with elaboration,
are opened to the travelers not as
houses of entertainment, but for
shelter. The sacred roof is made
hospitable, to the extent of keeping
off the wind and rain, but you must
find yourself. The Icelanders, who
have no scruples or thought of them
about public balls on Sunday, and
put their dancing and praying very
close together, do not see that the
church can be less holy and venera
ble because it is used as tavern
when not occupied for religious ex
ercises. The farm-house seems the most
dreary institution in Iceland, and
the most "liopeless. When the Ice
landic farmer can have a better
house he will not. , He builds his
walls of blocks of lava laid in turf.
Sometimes there is mud or lava
paste used instead of turf. When
the wall is five or six feet high, the
architect puts np a wooden frame
to support the roof, and is careful to
place the gable in front, and to
board that up, and put a rvindow of
about four small panes of glass in
it, - That is splendor. The roof
frame is covered with bark or grass,
or plank (sometimes - by all three),
and then heavily sodded. A row of
three of these tenements stone
walls with . sod roofs- and a long
passage between two of them, con
stitute a house. . . I believe there is
occasionally another . pen, with a
square Wooden box in the centre of
it, for a kitchen, though usually one
of the three is used for that purpose;
and immediately at hand a cow
house of similar construction. . The
worst of these houses is that they
are damp, and therefore unhealthy,
and that cleanliness is not possble
within. You enter them through a
long and narrow passage, dark and
rainy in wet weather, stumbling
over an uneven place of rough stones
and stooping to avoid low and dingy
rafters. , The entrance looks and
generally smells as though it might
be the disagreeable course necessary
to pursue to get into a cavern, the
occupauts of which should be reserv
ed for a menagerie.
"SHOWING CIVILITY TO STRANGERS,"
Speaking of beds and hospitali
ties in Iceland, there is an old cere
mony of showing civility to stran
gers that is said to be still prevalent
in the remote rural districts. It is
that the lady of the house shall pull
off the trowsers of the fatigued and
disconsolate travelers. The theory
is, that as the rain may be expected
to be always falling, the trowsers
must be wet at bed-time, and that
as the regular day's ride is about
forty miles, the adventurer from
other lands should be exceedingly
weary and in need of gentle encour
agement and assistance. It is
thought, therefore, that it is nothing
but an act of politeness and true con
cern for the welfare of the traveler,
and the most agreeable person in the
house should undress his legs. I
may add that there is not among the
Icelanders who perform this solemn
rite the . remotest , suspicion that
there is any indelicacy in the per
formance. " It is related of the most
pious and famous missionary who
ever visited the island, Henderson,
who distributed Bibles throughout
the Icelandic settlements fifty years
ago, that this business of pulling off
his trowsers was a sad embarrass
ment to him, and somewhat prevent
ed the developement of his vital pi
ety. He could not refuse to accept
the hospitality of the good people
among whoml.e distributed the good
book, for which they were grateful
in the extreme, and he finally ar
range a compromise and systemat
ize it He insisted upon first rolling
himself up in a blanket, and then
upon uuharnessing himself, as to
suspenders and waist-band, and then
not until then, he allowed the ladies
io seize the offending garment by
the straps (which be uniformily
wore to keep his trowscr's down
when riding) and pulled them off.
So while they took the trowsers in
triumph, he spared his modesty 'all
the rudeness of the terriblo shocks
that would otherwise have been in
flicted. Ttie philosophical and in
genious Christian minister publish
ed a largo volume about his trouble
in Iceland, and the story he tells
about his trouble with his trowsers
is very droll and iir fact is quite
pathetic and profusely garnished
with pious reflections. Ono trembles
to think what would have become
of him if the hold on his "fai

that we have seen, is the jail at Rej
kivik, and the most remarkable
thing in its history is that it never
contained a prisoner. It would not
hold an energetic prisoner anyhow,
unless he was chained, for there are
no bars across the windows, but the
experiment has not in any case been
tried; and the Rejkiavikers are not
seriously disinclined to mention the
subject, for it is the strongest pre
sentment that can be made of the
universal prevalence of virtue.
It would be a mistake, however,
to suppose that the Icelanders are
all ex officio, as it were superhuman
in their righteousness to infer, for
instance, that sin is as scarce in Ice
land as snakes in Ireland. By the
way there is no more trouble about
snakes in Iceland than there is in
Ireland. Fifteen per cent, of the
births in Ieeland are illegitimate;
and it is not true that there are neith
er drunkards nor beggars; for
there are sufficient specimens of
those classes in !oth islands. It is
not true that the people of Iceland
refuse to take money for the. enter
tainment of strangers at their
houses. They invariably take it, ac
cording to my observation; and in
one instance they said enough had
not been given, thongh that was a
matter reasonably within dispute.
You are told that you need not give
any money in return, unless you care
to do so, but that only increases the
obligation to pay, for you are under
stood to be very shabby if you do
not. The ratei at which charges are
made on the island in regular busi
ness transactions are not excessive.

EDUCATION AND INTELLIGENCE.
It mu st be said, in all fairness, of
the people of the island that they
know much of their own literature,
and that is a great deal and very
creditable to them. They flash up
in a moment from stolidity to eager
interest, and turn from impassive
ness to enthusiasm, when their old
sages are mentioned ; and the history
and legends of the Scandinavian
race "are familiar in their mouths
as household words." Many of
them have considerable knowledge
of German history and literature,
and Mr. Bavard Taylor, when talk
ing of English poetry to one of our
, i i r
guides, an orpuau wj ui kicukcu,
who has never been out of the is
land, was startled by the inquiry
whether he "did not think the song
of the spirits in 'Manfred' very fine?"
Of course, this of itself might be a
random shot for a smart boy, hut'
he was pretty thoroughly examined
as to his English literary studies,
and it turned out that he was siugu
larly intelligent and that his inquiry
about Manfred, was not based on a
merely accidental acquaintance with
the poem, or the product of an af
fectation of scholarship. The boy
was a well informed student,
who had carefully, from his infancy,
improved the long winter nights.

An Oriental Squabble.
China and Japan have become In
volved . in a very curious dispute.
The Island of Formosa, one of the
largest in the Eastern seas,' is nomi
nally a political dependency ef Chi- "
na. It was discovered snd colonized
by the Chinese as early as 1430,
though the merit of the first-named
exploit is not specially conspicuous,
inasmuch as the peaks of the island
are visible from the main land on
any clear day. The Portuguese
traded with " the natives in the f -;
teenth century, and gave the coun- -try
the name "Beautiful Island," by
which it is better knowa in their lan
guage than by the original title- of
Ti-wan, or "Great Bay," bestowed
by the Chinese. A Viceroy, whose
principal vocation was to squeeze
taxes and tribute from the colonists,
went to Formosa from Peking once a
year. But, of late years, the vicere
gal visit has been intermitted, and
the colonists who live in a few incon
siderable coast towns Tai-wan-foo,
Takow, Tamsui, and Kelung gov
ern themselves, being unmolested by
the semi-savage aborigines who in
habit th mountains and eastern
coasts. The original inhabitants of
the island resemble the Malays;
they are savage, camabaj, and inhos
pitable. Chinese and Japanese ves
sels wrecked upon the island ra
destroyed, and the crews massacred,
if not also eaten. The coast being
dangerous and swept by monsoons, '
the number of junks annually cast
thereon is said to be very great to
the manifest satisfaction of the ab
original Formosaus, who are alto-g-itjier
a bad lot.
To punish these barbarians, and if
possible sure protection to the
shipwrecked iiwuners of all nations,
the Japanese Government has under
taken an armed expedition to the is
land. The war-junks of ancient Ja
pan play no part iu this naval raid;
it is couducted wholly by steam ves
sels, bought or chartered by tie Got
eniment, and built after approved
European or American models. These
"fire-ships" seem to have alarmed
the Formosans, and late accounts
say tl at they fled to their fastnesses
Lb great terror. Admiral Pinnock,
in a (communication to our own Gov
ernment, saya that the Chinese Gov.
eminent, which still retains a feeble
hold upon Formoso, has ordered the
expeditionary forces to leave. Fur
thermore, it is said that the Peking
Government has vigorously remon
strated against th prosecution of
hostilities in Formosa, and has given
a warlike notice to Japan. There is
prospect of war, and both parties are
said to be actively preparing there
for. This was anticipated by our
Government; and Minister Binshah
solemnly warned Americans in Ja
pan against engaging in the expedi
tion, which was notoriously against
a Chinese province. Notwithstand
