Many strange faces of settlers who have purchased and this spring have moved on to farms in this adjacency, are daily seen on our streets. They are of a quality that denote thrift and integrity, and are a welcome class of citizens.

Schneider and Miss Martha Fisher were the principals in a case of matrimony last Monday. Squire Movius twisted the connubial knot and the many friends of the parties were entertained by a pleasant hop on the following evening in the Powers House, at which the happy couple were wished all kinds of good fortune in their new sphere. Messrs. A. 3 Hess and Lyman It. Jones, of Ortonville. visited Rig Stone, Monday, for the purpose of jseeing what would be done by our 'citizens towards building a good wagon road between Ortonville and Rig Stone, but the general impression appeared to be that the benefits to be derived .would not warrant so great an expenditure, which would have to be paid by private subscription. Rev. Mooers returned last Saturday from two weeks of very successful revival work at Rrown's Valley. Re tween thirty and forty were brought under conviction and a religious en thusiasm created in the town ge tier- a revival of the work in this place and is ably assisted by the Rev.

Those of our readers who intend go inn to settle in the northwest this season would do well to start early in April. If tbey intend to bu 01 homestead land, every Jf^ s valua e o a i n w o k a e e 1 gets out of the ground. KioakinR should be done in time to put in sod crops in May. Very fair yields of potatoes, oats and Indian corn can be raised on the sod. Resides, the plow ing for the next season s wheat ciop will occupy a good deal of tune, and with the erection of buildings aiula thousand one other things to do in starting a farm, will keep the s^tier so busy that he will wish he could put about twice as many days in a week as the calendar allows. If theeniigiant is going to engage in business in a town, he will lind everjbodj stiung around and getting ready lor the rush of the active season as early as the 1st of April. The best business openings for capital and enterprise are to be found in the spring, when the new settlers are coming in and new enter prises are being set on toot. All our advices from the northwest indicate a remarkably prosperous season this year. The pressure of hard times now felt in the east will work for the ad vantage of the new regions lately op ened to emigration, and thousands of men who never thought of going west as long as matters were running smoothly with them in their old homes, are now discontented with low wages and the dullness of trade and want to try their fortunes in the fresh fields. Thousands of younger men just out of the schools and ready to take their places in the working world can find no room for their talents and en ergies. All occupations seem to tin-in overcrowded. They turn to the bi oad hospitable free west as to a pruu ise land. Fourtunately there is one sec tion of the country, and an enormous one, too, where there is still room to spare for brains and muscles of the new generation to find profitable oc cupation and to build up for them selves a secure future.—The North west.
