THE PATRSOT
JT HUES DAY, U N E 13, 18 39.
As the attention of many in different:
parts of the Union has been recently di-j
neeted to Iowa, as affording suitable lo
cations for their future homes we feef
anxions to contribute something towards
giving them accurate information relative
to the most desirable points in the territo=
ry. In order to do this extensively and
without partiality, we call upon our
friends at a distance to co-operate. They
can do this by giving us a description of
their town or settlement—its resources—
agricultural, mineral, commercial, or me
chanical—its locality—state of society—^
the number of professional, mercantile
and mechanical men in the vicinity, with
such other information as would interest
those for whose especial benefit these de
scriptions will be published.
In this way most important intelligence
may be obtained in relation to our new
and rapidly rising territory. The de?el
opements already made are sufficiently
ample to convince all that its mineral
wealth is inexhaustible. In addition to the
lead mines, there have lately been discov
ered several extensive quarries of marble,
and from the specimens we have seci^ we
should judge it. to be of an excellent qual
ity.
The agricultural resources of this ter
ritory are acknowledged to be eqUal if
not superior to Illinois. There is much
less level prarie, the prairies are smaller
and the timber is more abundant. The
large crops of corn, wheat and othef grain
prove that the soil is capable of ricMy re
warding the labors of the husbandman^
and with a ready market for the surplus
produce "all along shore," the whole
length of the territory, we do not see
why the farmers of Iowa cannot, aided!
by temperance and frugality, soon realize
handsome fortunes.

Although it may have been "a story of the
Munchausen order," we assure the discourte
ous folks above alluded to that it was neverthe
less obtained from the Gazette, and although
we quoted from memory and might have made
some little mistake about the boats lyingalong
side of each other, by reference to a correct
register of steam boat-arrivals in this place we
learn that on the 3d of May—the time alluded
to—there were not only six but eight arrivals

it in politics. But in the process of time
when our territory became a separate
Territorial Government,—when Govern
ment Officers landed on our shores by
dozens, well trained in the school of Lo
cofocoism, and raised the War Whoop,
and in the mean time when the Editors had
lined their pockets with the sonio from
the support of all parties, we find the new
Iowa Territorial Gazette changing its
course. We find them heaping abuse up
on all who think differently from them
in politics and attempting to brand them
with every false and disgraceful charge
which their notorious leader Thomas H.
Benton had ever reiterated.
These are not mere assertions and opin
ions confined to myself alone. They are
the opinions and feeling of many of our
most respectable citizens, I would ask

that it should be neutral.

true that the Editors of the Gazette, de

three wolves before we reached him, and then
