All those interested in militia affairs
will no doubt be pleased to learn that
the sub-committee of the House Com

report on the subject of re-organizing
the militia. It urges the importance
of national legislation and states that
without interfering with the control
of the States over militia, the Federal
government should take action in the
natuie of co-operation, and should
make sufficient annual approriations
for arming and equipping the militia
and to pay for service during prescrib
ed periods of encampment and drill.
The provisions of the bill, in brief,
are as follows:
The increasing of the annual Con

fixed in 1702 to $1,00,000.

reasons for their action, showing the
very moderate taxation necessary, etc.

I promised to say something about
Dakota in this letter. A great many
persons have made enquiries of me
about the Territory since I came
back. I can assure the readers of
the REVIEW that I was agreeably sur.
prised with all I saw on my trip. I
supposed when I got west of Lake
Benton I would pass the limits of ci
vilization, but I was sadly mistaken.
The first station in Dakota is Aurora.
It is a snug little village with stores,
hotels, lumber yard, machine agents
in abundance, P.O., &c.The next
town west is Brookings, which is the
county seat of Brookings Co. It con.
tains fourteen stores of all descrip
tions, as dry goods, hardware, drug
stores and a splendid school house,
two stories high, whioh cost about
$2,000, also alive newspaper and all
appliances belonging to a civilized
community excepting a saloon. Coun
ty license is set at $4000.
The next town is Volga, the pres
ent terminus of the Tracy branch of
the railroad. It is a thoroughly wide
awake town, There are four hotels
and all overrun and crowded with
people. Every train brings in a
crowd of land hunters from every
western State. I was amongst' the
land hunters myself and I went 48
miles west of Volga to find vacant
land near where there will be a sta
tion, and I secured .land two miles
from a platted station. At present
there is not a hquse nor living inhabi
tant within thirty miles of where I lo
cated except the head-quarter store,
but before two months the cars will
be thundering past my place and
twenty miles farther west to the
James river. As far as the road bed
is graded there are contracts already
let to build business houses at every
station from Volga to the Jim river.
The stations are 5 in number and will
be named as follows Norland,
De Smith, Eriywoise, Cavour and
Huron which will be the name of the
town at the crossing of the Jim river.
At this last town all the land has been
taken up within the last month for a
distance of several miles in redius as
it is intended to be the next division
of the road. In regard to the surface
it is as level as the ocean in oalm
weather, and there is but little vari
ety or change. There is a sameness
as far as the eye can see and a man
might plow an unbroken furrow for
twenty miles. A tremendous tide of
emigration will fellow up the building
of this railroad this summer, and
many ambitious hardy pioneers will
keep ahead and be at the Missouri
long before the whistle of the locomo
tive reverberates along the hills and
valleys of this famous river.

The invention of that Superior and
Complete Sewiiig Machine (The Fami
ly Sewing Machine,) marks one of the
most important eras in the history, of
machinery, and when we consider its
great usefulness and extremely low
price ($25). It very difficult to con
ceive of any invention for domestic use
of more or even equal importance to fa
milies. It has great capacity for work
beautiful, smooth, and quiet move
ment, rapid execution, certainty and
delightful ease of operation, that at
once commends it above all others.
The working parts are all steel, strong
and durable, and will last a life time
the bobbin hold 100 yards of thread
the stitch is the firmest of all the
stitches made, neat and regular, and
can be regulated in a moment to sew
stitches from an inch in lenght on
coarse material down to the finest, so
infinitesimal as to be hardly discern
able with the naked eye, and with a
rapidity rendering it impossible to
count them as fast as made it has
more attachments than any oth
er, and it does to perfection all kinds
of heavy, coarse, plain, fine, or fancy
needle-work with ease, and far less
labor than required on other machines.
It needs no commendation, the rapid
sales, increasing demand, and volun
tary encomiums from the press, and
the thousands of families who use
them, amply testify to their undoubted
worth as a standard and reliable house
hold necessity, extending its popular
ity each day. Machines sent any
