THE MINNESOTIAN. Correspondence of the St. Anthony Express. West sf the Mississippi—Sank Rapids. Snuk Rapids, Min., ) August 14, 1852. $ Mr. Editor : —Through the columns of your paper, I desire to call attention to a most beautiful tract of country, hitherto little known and little noticed; namely,a belt of land lying on the west side of the Mississippi river, bounded north by Sauk river, running west on Sauk river about ten miles, and from the mouth of the Sauk, south, on the Mississippi thirty or forty miles, including the steamboat land ing and the entire water power of the Rapids on the west side. Without the least wish “ wilfully to misrepresent,” your Sauk Rapids corres pondent asserts it as his honest convic tion, that no other region of country, here or elsewhere, of equal extent, combines so many elements for making beautiful, productive, and valuable farms. Unlike some sections of Minnesota, otherwise desirable, it is well wooded and well watered. While there is an abundance of rich prairie land for farms, such farms as old New England men own and till in the valley of the Connecticut, and the Kentucky hemp growers on the bunks of the Ohio, there are, also, close by, groves of beautiful timber, and lands cov ered with stately forest trees, while clear lakes, musically murmuring rivulets, and perennial springs enrich and beautify the whole. There is a marked peculiarity in the soil of these prairies. The only objec tion I have ever heard expressed by emi grants, to Minnesota prairies, has been that they are too sandy to last. This ob jection can be urged with some truth to a lew localities, within my own knowledge. The little prairie a few miles this side of St. Paul, and small portions of the land adjoining Fort Ripley, are examples. In both places the proportion of sand is cer tainly too large, and after a few yaars’ use, they will present a dry surface of dead sand. There is no denying this.— The composition of the soil is a standing refutation of every other supposition.— But these are exceptions to the general rule applicable to our prairie soil. The soil, however, of the prairies on Sauk river, is not liable to this objection. It is not only not sandy, but it has the ap pearanc of bottom lands cleared of heavy timber, such as border the St. Joseph, in Michigan, or the Maumee, in Ohio, deep and loamy ; while at the same time it is high, dry and undulating Tliprn U a charming lake about four miles distant from the mouth of Sauk river. A beau tiful stream traverses the claim of John C. Hanley, known as Hanley’s creek, possessing important hydaulic powers.— Farther down the river, twenty, thirty, and forty miles, such is the beauty and fertility of the country, that I feel assur ed, could the toiling hundreds on the mountains of the far East, once behold it, they would, if they could not sell them, give away the rick- ty old lands of thier grandfathers, for the privilege of coming and making homes for themselves and children in this delightful country. Many are coming, but many more ought to come. I wish your paper could be read in every dilapidated old house in New England, and by every young man now hoeing his acre of poor corn, in that most respectable, but worn out and rusty region. I think you would open their eyes to the folly of eternally digging among rocks for a living. The rotten old mansions around the base of the frown ing Kearsarge, and in the shadows of shaggy Hoosac, with their appurtenances, would be left to the bats, if their owners knew but half the true story of our prai ries and rivers in Minnesota. Merely as a philanthopic act, can you not send the Express to some of those moth-eaten corner towns in New England, whose only merit consists in Gen. Washington’s having stopped over night in them, on his way from the Continental Congress or some other old gathering in Revolutiona ry times. In so doing, I verily believe you be doing God’s service. It would tell them of a country which they perhaps have never read of. Our enterprising neighbors, Messrs. Lowry and Gilman, are now having two hundred acres broken on one of the prai ries above named, and nearly opposite the landing. Mr. Lowry also designs erect ing a large warehouse at the landing, on the west bank of the river, and men are now engaged in getting out the materials tor the building. John C. Hanley, our efficient Sheriff, has also the lumber drawn for a substantial dwelling on his choice claim opposite Ewing’s landing.— We therefore soon expect to see a busy, growing community settled up and down the western bank of the Rapids. Of “ our side,” I am happy to be able to say, that a large substantial building, block, designed for the common jail of the county, is in course jt erection, and will be completed in two or three weeks. It is built on the site selected by the County Commissioners, for the county buildings. We are all pleased at the prospect of having a Land Office ere long established in Benton county. It is a desideratum, the importance of which is being to be realized. We are surrounded by a large tract of country soon to come into market, and our citizens certainly should not be compelled to perform a journey of a hun dred miles, to locate a quarter or half sec tion of land. In conclusion, allow me to congratulate you m having succeeded, after so long a time, in awakening the slumbering affec tion of the amiable editor of the Minneso tian, for the Upper Mississippi. He now declares his former attachment, which I never heard of before. But then lam a “ new comer." 1 know nothing, and until now have heard nothing, of the ar dent love which our new friend “bore us” in “ auld land syne.” If it is truth that he speaks, I certainly cannot help feeling thankful that his Rip Van Winkle sleep is at length broken.* This is writ ten for the purpose of calling attention to a beautiful region of country on the Up per Mississippi, not hitherto noticed.— Will the editor of the Minnesotian prove his words by his work, by copying it from the Express into his paper. JVous verrons. Respectfully yours, BENTON. • Th* Sauk Rapids man will. If he Is honest and can did, acknowledge that he is the Rip Van Winkle.— Afm netotian. [Correspondence of the New York Tribune, A Working Woman oa Country Life. Horicon, (Wis.) July 29, 1852. In this day of Woman’s Rights and Woman’s Rights’ Conventions, I thought I would take the liberty', to address a few lines to The Tribune , in answer to an article from C. D., on “ The Tendency of Population to the City—its causes.” C. D. must be grossly ignorant of country life, I think, from the description he gives of a farmer’s, or, at least, in Wis consin. I think therearea very fewthal are saucy enough to rise before the sun, and il one’s hands do grow hard, that is no sign that “ his manners are uncouth, or his mind uncultivated.” ll C. D. would come to Wisconsin and see our fields of wheat nodding yellow heads invitingly to the harvest-men, our tall corn, our beds of rich garden vegeta bles, our tat, contented hogs and cattle, and our flocks of hens and turkeys, he would think a farmer might contrive to exist, in spite “of the plainness of his homespun ” suit. Alter having held up a «carecrow of a farmer to frighten people from the coun try, he paints out a city clerk, with “glit tering apendages and graceful manners,” and takes him for a decoy pigeon to lure them to the city. Perhaps C. D. docs not know how much better healtli a person can enjoy in the country than in the city. He does not tell you how the pale dyspeptical clerk turns away with a sickening stom ach from “the table loaded with luxu ries or how, amid the smoke and heat and dust of the city, he closes his aching eyes and wishes himself among the sha dy groves, the green hills, and cool sprinprs of the omm try “ Then as to the respective condition of the women.” We do not think that that class which consider “ shopping, visiting and thrum ming the piano,” to be the object of life, comprises all the women of the city. We would beg leave to compare another class of city women with the country ones.— The country girl comes forth in the morn ing to breath the fresh air, burdened with sweets of a thousand fragrant (lowers, and as she trips along she carols forth a song in the very gladness of her heart; her step is light as the fawn’s, the rose of health blooms on her cheek, innocence and happiness beam from her eye. Com pare her with the pale, sallow counten ance, the bowed form, and weak step of the city sewing-girl who sits stitching away her life in a garret, or a shop; and which, will reflection tell us, is the more desirable condition of the two? Then compare the large, airy kitchen of the far mer, to the sweltering cellars of the city. And then, a girl in the country, is paid from eight to ten shillings per week. I do not know what they average in the city, but I presume no more. Now I would sincerely advise all young men and girls, who have not the fear of hard hands and dumpy fingers before their eyes, to come to this country. They will find labor well requited, and thanks to the Free School law, there is no lack of edu cation, and there is no excuse for being ignorant when we can get The Weeekly Tribune for two dollars per annum. Anil if they have any such fears for their com fort, I would say that 1 can show them hands that have milked, made butter, washed, scrubbed and done all kinds of housework for a quarter of a century, and I am not afraid to compare them with the hands of any woman in the city, al though hers have never been used for any coarser purposes than to thump time into eternity on the keys of a groaning, shriek ing piano. Now, Mr. Editor, as we have a good Whig Governor, we shall of course have Thanksgiving duly announced: I would take this opportunity to invite you and C. D. to take supper with us. And if we have none of the “ luxuries of the city,” our fare will be the product of our own labor, and though we eat in a log cottage, from a pine table, it will he be neath the shade of our own spreading oaks, (if not “our own vine and fig tree.”) We will venture to promise you as good a turkey as you can get in any city, and I hope when C. D. becomes better acquinted with the country people, he will think that vulgarity and ignorance are not necessarily tne attendants of the farmhouse. Oh, if my voice could reach the gar rets and cellars of New York, I would try and lure forth their inhabitants to the spreiding prairies and green oak openings of Wisconsin. Mr. Editor, if you think these few lines worth your notice, they are at your disposal; if not, it is no great loss in these days of cheap postage. There go a parcel of harvest-men; Hurra for Scott! they are singing.— Amen, I say. May the cry of Scott and Liberty ring forth through the length and breadtn of our land till the hackwoods man in the forests of Maine and the startled gold-hunters on the banks of the Sacramento shall echo back the shout! Yours, truly s. n. c. “Brightly Break* the Morning. ) “ The skies *rc bright, our he»rts *re light, Once mure by thousands we unite.” The campaign progresses gloriously.— During the past week immense Scott mass meetings have been held in Perry, Mifflin. Luzerne, Columbia, Fulton, Bed ford, Berks, and other counties in the State, at all of which the greatest enthu siasm was manifested. The people are fully aroused ! The spirit of 1840 and 1848 is abroad in the land, and the locos cannot successfully resist the current of popular enthusiasm that is rapidly bear ing General Scott to the Presiden tial chair, Pennsylvania has never yet deserted the scar-covered, lanrel-crown ed Heroes who have fought her coun try’s battles and successfully defend ed her flag in every contest with a foreign toe. The Electoral vote of the old Key stone will be given to Gen. Scott, as it was to Jackson, and Harrison, and Tay lor. The indications of this glorious re sult are as palpably evident as if written upon the heavens with a system of sun beams. We daily hear of Democrats “ coming out from among the foul party,” and arraying themselves under the Scott banner. Such is our confidence in Scott’s carrying the State by a large majority, that we have no hesitation in saying to our friends everywhere, this result “will do to bet on."—Harrisburgh (Pa.') S.'ate Journal. Miraculous Escape — Capt. F. W. Coffin and family, of this village, while on a recent tour to the Upper Lakes, on the propeller, Prairie State, came near losing their youngest son, about three years old, by drowning. The particulars are these: When near the Manitou Isl ands, in Lake Michigan, and while the ladies on the boat were engaged in con versation, the little lad strayed to the edge of the vessel, unnoticed by those around ; and in attempting to get upon a chair that stood near the guards, the chair turned with him and lie fell over board. Mr. George Sanburn, sleward of the boat, the only person that saw the child fall, jumped into the water to rescue him. The w heelsman discovered Mr. S. in the water, and rung the bell to have the engine stop. The propeller being under full headway, proceeded about half a mile before it could be stopped. The boat was lowered and well manned, wiUi the almost distracted fattier among the number. The waves were rolling high, and only as the boat rose upon the foaming billows, could those in it dis cover the young man and child. In a short time, however, they reeched Mr. Sanburn, nearly exhausted in contending against the strong head wind, and took him in the boat. It W'as believed that the child had sunk to rise no more, when the father discovered it floating on the surface of the water, some eighty feet distant. There was hope that the child might yet be saved, and the hands rowed to the spot with ail possible speed, upon reaching which the child was taken from the water apparently lifeless. On reach ing the propeller, however, signs of life appeared, and after some three or four hours rubbing of the body and limbs, and pressing the chest, the child revived, and is now doing well. —Ravenna ( Ohio) Whig. Ho.v. Thos. F. Marshall. —The Whig Central Committee of Kentucky have ap pointed the Hon. Thos. F. Marshall, the Whig candidate for elector in the Lexing ton district in the place of Mr. Garret Davis, resigned. Mr. Marshall has ac cepted the appointment, and was to meet Mr. Johnson, his Democratic competitor, at the Owen county court yesterday. Mr. M., we are told, made a splendid speech at Frankfort on Saturday evening, and with the finest effect. A distinguish ed citizen who heard it, writes us that, if sucli a speech were made in every neigh borhood in Kentucky, Gen. Scott’s ma jority would reach thirty thousand. We hope that, after Mr. Marshall shall have canvassed his own district, he may be prevailed on to go into other districts and administer on Gen. Pierce. —Louisville Jour. Gen. Shields’ opinion or Gen. Scott. —The gallant Gen. Shields thus speaks of Gen. Scott: “ Gen. Winfield Scott is the candidate of the Whig party. For him I entertain the highest personal regard and esteem. I admire him as I do any man living, for his great military talents, and 1 consider him entitled to the gratitude of his coun try, for glorious military services.” Gen. Shields is a native of Ireland, a United States Senator, a Democrat, and was a brave soldier in the Mexican w r ar. Our fishermen continue to be harrassed and driven off from their fishing grounds by British cruisers. If this question can be settled, it should be done before the public mind gets irritated on the subject. A Good Notion.— We hear of a “ Democratic Scott Club,” lately formed in a neighboring county, composed whol ly of Democrats. They assembled last Saturday in a grove, in considerable num bers.—Galena Adv. lowa. —The Burlington Telegraph, neu tral in politics, says there is no disguising the fact that there is a pretty sour feeling afloat, and that lowa will become a very considerable battle field before the war is over. Double Entendre. —“You, Biddy, what’s o’clock ? end where’s that chicken pie?” “ It’s eighty ms’im.” Insubordination among the Slaves in Virginia. —The Richmond, Norfolk, and Fredericksburg papers allude fre quently to the spirit of insubordination among the slaves, which they attribute to a recent pardon by the Governor of a slave who had killed an overseer. The Fredericksburg Herald says: “ It is useless to disguise the fact, its truth is undeniable, that a greater degree of insubordination has been manifested by the negro population, within the last few months, than at any previous period in our history as a State. Our exchanges from all quarters of Virginia come to us freighted with recounts of attacks of ne groes on their masters or overseers, and a general laxity of punishment seems to pervade the length and breadth of the old Dominion. And not only is it abroad that the spirit of mishief seems brewing, but even here we might cite several no table instances that have been named to us. “We have heard of negroes who re fused to be chastised by overseers, and who have gone so far as to resist. Kitchen servants, who teach their children that no such relative position as master and slave ought of right to exist, and that henceforth the term is to be repudiated, and instead of master it is to be Mr., and instead ot their offspring applying the terms heretofore known as father and mother, among the blacks, ii is to be pa and ma! This might be ludicrous to comment upon, but it shows the progres •iveness of the times, and developes a feeling among the colored population which has never before been known to exist. “We conceive it to be time that all parties understood each other upon this subject, and while we should object to anything which might smack of heartless severity, yet personal safely may demand some abridgement of the extended privi leges which are now allowed to the col ored population. It is now a debateable point, as to which color shall use the side walk, and which give way—a point that wc think had better be settled at once. Let the public see to these matters in time, or great severity will be required after a time, while a little wholesome re striction just now will obviate its neces sity and application then.” “ Sleeve Gammon.”— Under this ap propriate head, the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser says that another civil war, second only to the great battle of Bloom erism, is about to break out in the female camp, on the question of reviving the large sleeve—hishou’s sleeves as they are called. The Extradition Case —The Lon don Press has taken up the Extradition case. The Times says that it is as much the interest of the United States as it is of Great Britain, that Kaine should be given up to the agents of the British Gov ernment. The London Globe wonders why civilized nations should fling the mantle of their protection over ordinary criminals. The British officials will feel astonished when they hear that Kaine’s case has gone to the Supreme Court.— What will they think if that Court should differ with the administration in its con struction of the Treaty. English Merchants and Mexico.— The London Times has arrived at the con clusion that Ihe Republic of Mexico bas reached the last stage of debility and em barrassment consistent with the existence of a State, and that there is only one way by which she may continue her independ ent existence, and that is through the seizure of dictatorial powers by the Pres ident, Arista. She is torn by domestic dissensions and strife, and pressed by the United States, France and England.— English capitalists, it says, are the largest creditors of the government, and it has become, therefore a matter of grave con sideration whether any means can he ta ken, in the scramble which is about to en sue, for the protection of British inter ests. Declines. —Hon. Robert C. Winthrop declines running for Governor in Massa chusetts. He intimates that by so doing, he can better devote himself to the suc cess of the State and Electoral tickets.— The Boston Atlas says, he withdraws at a time when both his nomination and elec tion were considered certain. Antidote for Strychnine.—A wri ter in the Texas Ranger gives an account of the successful treatment of some ne groes, who had been poisoned with strych nine prepared for wolf’s bait. Melted hog’s lard was administered to them freely after they had suffered great agony for several hours, and immediate relief was the consequence. Going for Scott.— We do not know how it may be in other parts of the country, except from common report, but here, not a day passes that we do not hear of prominent democrats in this vicinity who declare their determination to vote for Scott. There are a large number of persons who will not vote for a man for President of whom they had never heard previous to his nomination. —Galena Adv. Catastrophe at Albany.— -Eleven Lives Lost. —On the 22d inst., a skiff ferry boat undertook to cross the Hud son, opposite Albany, overloaded with 18 persons. When about half way over, one of the passengers had his hat blown off into the river. In attempting to recover it, the skiff capsized and eleven persons were drowned. The Native Americans of Philadelphia have completed their cily and county ticket, and have adopted a resolution not to amalgamate with any party. EDITORS AND PUBLISHERS. Rising in the World. —We should bear in mind that nine-tenths of us are, from the very nature and necessities of the world, born to gain our livelihood by the sweat of the brow. What reason have we, then, to presume that our child ren will not do the same ? If they be, as now and then one will be, endowed with extraordinary powers of mind, those extraordinary powers of mind may have . an opportunity of developing themselves ; and, if they never have that opportunity, j the harm is not very great to us or them. Nor does it hence follow that the descend ers of laborers are always to be labor ers. The path upward is' steep and long, to be sure. Industry, care, skill, excel lence, in the present parent, lay the foun dation of a rise, under more favorable cir cumstances, for the children. The child ren of these take another rise; and, by and by, the descenders of the present laborer attain distinction. This is the natural progress. It is by attempting to reach the top at a single leap that so much misery is produced in the world. Socie ty may aid in making the laborers virtu ous and happy, by bringing children up to labor with steadiness, with care, and with skill ; to show them how to do as many useful things as possible; to do them all in the best manner; to set them an example in industry, sobriety, cleanli ness, and neatness ; to make all these ha bitual to them, so that they shall never be liable to fall into the contrary; to let them always see a good living proceeding from labor, and thus to remove from them the temptation to get at the goods of others by violent and fraudulent means, and to keep from their minds all the induce ments to hypocrisy and deceit.— Cobbelt. Baltimore, Aug. 15. The 14th of September next, being the anniversary of the entrance of Gen. Scott and the army under his command into the city of Mexico, will be celebra ted by a grand mass meeting in Louis ville, Kentucky. The 10th of Septem ber being the anniversary of Perry’s vie tory on Lake Erie, will be celebrated by a mass Convention of the friends of Gen. Scott in Pittsburgh. Death or Levi Buckingham. —Levi Buckingham, sen., died at his residence in Symmcs township on Thursday, the 28th of July, 1852, aged 87 years. Mr. Buckingham was one of our pioneers. He purchased the farm on which lie lived and died, of Judge Symmes, in 1807, at 33 1-3 cents an acre, and it is now worth $l5O per acre. He was a volunteer with St. Clair at his defeat, arid was left without any supplies lo nnit lus way home.— Cn. Gazelle. Treasure in New Jersey. —The Mount Holly Mirror, N. J., tells an al most incredible story, that some of Capt. Kidd’s treasure has been found among the Pines, and that the occupants of that re gion are in a state of intense excitement. A man dreamed for several nights suc cessively that lie should find this trea sure, the place to be indicated by four iron bars projecting from the earth. He went and found his dream realized. Two hundred and forty thousand dollars are said to have been discovered up to Mon day night, buried in iron chests, nnd the people have turned out with their pick axes in farther search for the treasure. Betting on Elections. —We are op posed to this practice on principle. Mon ey got in this way docs the receiver no f'ood, and the loss is not pleasant to the oser. We think Gen. Scott will be elected. Such men always have been successful, when run, whatever may have been the hopes of their opponents before the election. There is always an under current running in their favor that is al ways unaccountable to old politicians.— Unless we are deceived, this current is setting as strong now as it was for Jack son, Taylor or Harrison. But we say to all parties do not bet.— Galena Adv. Change or a Name. —The London Punch says : “It may be proper to state that the distinguished individual known among the ancients as Cupid, has recent ly changed his name to Cupidity, and will hereafter devote his attention to matters of money as well as matrimony.” Magnificent New Boats. —Quite a fleet of splendid new boats are in course of construction in the West, and our packets this fall arc expected to equal, if not eclipse, the Eastern boats. At pres ent wc can enumerate the Henry Clay, Falls City, David While, Robert J. Ward- A. L. H/iolwrll, Natchez, Alvin Adams, Baltimore, Tom Swan, and three others that have not yet been named, and will be superior in size, speed and finish to any boats yet built, with the exception of the Eclipse. —Louisville Cour., Aug.
