faint pad, fatnr&aij, Dttcabtr 10, 1853 About two weeks since, at friend, in whose in tegrity we place the most implicit reliance, in formed us that it bad como to bis knowledge that, in a conference between the editors of the Minncsotian and the Pioneer, it Imd been de cided that an onslaught was to l»c made upon us. on account of the letter which we addressed a few weeks since, to the editor of the (IWcna Jeffersonian, in relation to an article published by that paper respecting our rcceut Delegate election. It was then decided, «» we were in formed, that Owens was to commence the at tack, and the Pioneer was to “ take np the won drous tale,” and play second fiddle in the ty-ric to its associate.— Demotrat. We care not who the informant of the Demo crat is in this particular, or whether, as is most likely, he is merely a creature of imagination, Conjured up for the occasion by the infirm and dissolute brain of the editor, we pronounce the above, in plain Saxon, a deliberate and mali cious lie, through and through. There is not the least particle or semblance ot truth in any part of it, and we defy the editor of the Demo crat to bring forward any respectable man in this community who will face us aud say there is. It pleases the purpose of this editor to lie continually charging us with ‘ coalition ’ with the Pioneer, which is a new trumping up of an old featherlcss scare-crow to frighten green horns. The editor knows well that no such co alition exists at this time, either for partisan or business purposes ; but so long os he can get a few unthinking, illiterate noodles to believe his drivelling stuff, his present hand-to-mouth ends are answered. Hut we call for the proof of the wholesale assertion be makes above, and dare him to produce it. The Rice Affair and the Democrat. The editor of the Democrat gives up all his points, save one, touching tlic controversy be tween us, growing out of the Jeffersonian's at tack upon Mr. Rice, lie acknowledges all we said last week, in refutation of his former asser tions, to be true except our statement of the date of the article in the Jeffersonian, and calls upon the Jeffersonian editor to help him out in this one point. If he is right und we wrong, in this particular, wc arc willing to acknowledge we were deceived by our own senses. llowc vw, this will be no great matter, even if it comes out as he says, inasmuch as he acknow ledges Hie space of time intervening between his arrival in Galena and the appearance of his article to have been a number of days—suffi ciently long for the libel to do all the mischief Its original perpetrators intended it should. And now, it being admitted that tlic attack came from a 1 Democratic ’ quarter in Minne sota, the question is, who is its author? Would the Democrat like to answer this question? No; not it, just at this time,—for the very good reason that tlic editor is well aware the sore is not healed over by his milk-and-water w ash, put forth in the Jeffersonian ; and that when it again shows signs of eruption he will, here at home, l*c compelled to take sides with Mr. Rice's defamers, or lose his position as organ-grinder In certain quarters. We happen to be posted ; and if what we say does not prove true, there 1b no reading ‘ the signs of the times.’ The accounts from the seat of war in Tur key arc conflicting, although it appears cer tain that Omar I’ncha has crossed the Danube in considerable force; and some skirmishing has taken place. Vet the moneyed men of Eu rope still have hopes of checking nnd suppress ing hostilities. We make the follow ing extracts from the Tribune of the 18th, of new s by the latest arrival: London, Saturday, Nov. 5, 1853. The Times of this morning bus the following dispatch: Vienna, Friday, Nov. 4, 1953. The following is an official communication from Bucharest; 2,000 Turks appeared at Guirevo, and fired Into tbe town. In the conflict many Uussians and Turks were killed. The Turks retreated up the river and the Russians followed them. At Kalcfat there arc daily skirmishes. The Turks respect foreign property under the Aus trian flag. Paths. Friday, Nov. 4tli, 1853. A private telegraph dispatch from Vienna, of Nov. 3, announces the defeat of the Turkish corps which had passed the Danube near Kale fat. A private telegraphic dispatch from Con stantinople of 24th October, alter mentioning the presence of the fleets at Lampsnki, says that a party of French officers had arrived at Con stantinople, and that certain British officers lmd left for Shuniia. The Morning Chronicle has another dispatch as follows: 1 Vienna, Friday. Nov. 4. The Pressc confirms the news of the arrival of 7,000 troops at Kalefat of the advance of the left wing of the Turkish army, besides 8,000 of the Turkish reserve from Sothia. The vanguard under Numik l’asha and Gen. Prun, haii a se rious conflict with 2.500 liussian cavalry, be tween Kalefat and Krujova. Tlie affair lasted two hours when the Russians retreated toward Slatina. The 1 ressc states on' the authority ol a Con stantinople letter, of the 21st Oct. that Redscbid Pasha has consented toa fresh draught of a note by Lord Redcliffc, based on the Char's admis sions at Olmutz. Redscbid Pasha is said to have given his con Mnt alter a scries of stormy conferences. “Tub Know Nothixo.”—The Newark Daily Advertiser says: “This Society, which has attracted consider able attention by its effect on the recent elec tions in this city and New York, ise.xciting eu riOßity among our country friends as to its com position and intention.

Gorman baa given Instructions to have the Cluppcwas who are assembled at St. Croix Falls, furnished with food and clothing sufficient to allevist* their present wants. The Governor's r<-»sons for not doing this sooner w-cre that the authorities at Washington inter fere,l. He has now taken the responsibility to jo as humanity dictates, and it is to be hoped he will be borne out in his course. The Pio ncer makes the following explanation : “ The Department at Washington has for some time past, refused to pay either money, goods, or provisions at any point except at the Agency. The object of thiß policy was to keep those Indians within their own Territory, and prevent their remaining in the vicinity of the white settlements. These St. Croix and Chip pewa river Indinns still occupy their old loca tions, a great distance from the Chippewa Agen cy, nnd they visited the Superintendent, Gov. Gorman. Inst fall, for the purpose of soliciting the distribution of their annuity goods and pro visions at some point more convenient for them than that Agency. The Governor, in his reply, instead of saying “ lie would select some more convenient place, where they should receive their goods and provisions,” said he would endeavor to obtain authority to distribute their goods nnd provisions at some other point than the Agency, and suggested the Falls of St. Croix as probably the most convenient point for both the Government and the Indians. Gover nor Gorman then addressed a letter to the De partment, stating many reasons why, in justice, the policy of the department should lie changed at least for the present, nnd authority l*c grant ed for the distribution of their goods aud provi sions, at tliv Falls of the St. Croix, a point to which the supplies could be sent by steamboat at a trifling expanse, while it is nf convenient access to the Indians. The department not having given authority for the proposed change Gov. Gorman did not feel at liberty to direct the distribution to lie made at any other place than Hint which thedepartment had designated until lie was made aware of the suffering condi tion of the Indians, and their inability to reach the Agency nt this inclement season ot the year, when he ‘ took the responsibility ’ of directing a distribution of goods and provisions to be made to them nt the Falls of St. Croix, where many arc assembled in anticipation of receiving a portion of their annuities. The payment of these annuity goods and provisions will take* place, wc understand, the present week.” Coming Ai.ong.— We learn from the Inst Du buque Tribune that the construction train upon the Illinois Central Railroad had reached Nora, twenty-eight miles from Galena, and that pas senger trains would soon run to that village. Between that point and Galena, and between Galena and Dubuque, there is much heavy grad ing yet to be done. Pioneer please take note, and consider itsclt posted. Nicholas Dowling. Augustus Esty and John Tyler, Esqrs. have liccn appointed Commissioners to assess the damages on property on the line of the road in Galena and vicinity. The grading on the Chi cago and ltcck Island Railroad is entirely fin ished, and the cars running within twenty-five miles of the latter point. Through, certain, to the Mississippi by February at farthest. The Execltive Axe. —Tlic Cabinet at Wash ington appear determined to ‘ go it ’ upon their own appointed officials, now they have their hands in. Another example is about tol>e made of certain prominent bolters in N. Y. State— Postmaster at Albany, &c. Massachlsetts Election-. —ln all the wards but one in the city ofßoston, the vote stood : For Governor Washburn, Whig, 7,173; Bishop. Democrat, 2.850; Wilson,Frccsoil,l,3l-1; Wales, National Democrat, 780. Tlic vote on the ac ceptance of the New Constitution, stands:— Yeas, 3,220 ; Nays, 8,888. Six Whig Senators and forty-four Whig Representatives are chosen in Suffolk county. The members elect of the new Legislature arc reported by the Atlas as follows :—Senate, II Whigs, all others, 10 ; no choice, 19. House, 152 Whigs, 81 Coalition, National, 7. Whig majority 03. The Whigs expect to carry a majority of the latter at the next trial. Under the circumstances, this is a great victory for the old line Whigs. It has placed the Frecsoilcrs and Locofocos in a most humiliating fix. The Cleveland Herald re marks : “No set of men were ever more confident of success, anil none ever displayed their conf dence with more arrogance; but they went up like a rocket and came down like the stick. A very few patriots, including renegade Whigs and foxy Locofocos. on the pretext of certain unexceptionable reforms, carried through the Legislature a project for a Constitutional Con vention. They managed to get a majority of theirstripc elected to the Convention, and when that body met, they did not hesitate to admit that the chief object of the enterprise was to break down the old Whig party. But when the hour came, the huge paw of the people pro ceeded to pull up these schemers by the roots. They are now the laughing stock of the whole country.” Not to bf. Pitied. —Two buggies driven through the streets by some of the b lioys in ra ther an excited state, the horses on the full run, yesterday evening greatly endangered the lives and limbs of pedestrians. Finally, one of the vehicles came in contact with a wood-pile, causing a smash-np, and considerably bruising one of the inmates. A stop should be put to these transactions. “New York. Nov. 15. The horse that ran the hundred mile race died the evening of the day of the race.” We do not remember whether or not wc pub lished a statement of this fiendish treatment of a noble animal, but the fact is simply that a horse, on one of the Long Island courses, we believe, was compelled, for the pleasure and sordid ends of a lot of reckless gamesters, to run one hundred miles in ten hours! The sc ipiel is recorded in the two lines above. Brief is the poor fellow's obituary, sent forth to the world over the telegraphic wires! What of his murderers ? Where are they—those ‘ noble, gen erous, good fellows?’ They should certainly be remembered for this ‘ great feat' of the turf, al though one of man's next best friends has paid the forfeit of his life for their ‘ amusement.” Now, bring on your bull fights aud bear-baits, nml let us have ‘ civilization ’ with all its ‘ hu mane accompaniments, as in the best days of old Spain! Our people East— at the centre of ‘fashion and refinement,’ arc certainly ready for the change. The poor, miserable, horse murdering wretches! Wuat Now!—A late number of the New York Herald has a telegraphic dispatch from Washington, giving a report that Gov. Gorman is under Executive displeasure at the White House, and will probably be • suspended.' What is all this about, and where docs the Herald's information come from ? Is any one throwing a scalding, inundating stream into the Gover nor's coat-tail pocket through a very long con ducting pipe ? Perhaps neighbor David can in form us. The Territorial Library is removed to its quarters in the Capitol, aud great credit is ***" Smith, the Librarian, for the substantial and tasteful manner in which the room is fitted up. A Model Mill.— Messrs. C. 11. Oakes A Co. have just put in operation their sew flouring mill, adjoining their extensive saw mills in the lower part of town. The mill iasmall, but con tains two run of stones, and works most admi rably. Tlic machinery embraces all the latest improvements, and is put up with the usual skill and mechanical order displayed by the mill-wriglit, Mr. S. S. Eaton, in everything he undertakes. This gentleman never fails in ren dering, as perfect as mechanism will allow, all the works connected with milling that passes through his hands. There is~ a great economy of space in this new mill, and yet it has all the accompaniments of smut-machines, screens, bolters, elevators, Ac., requisite to a flour man ufactory of the first order. With good winter grain, this establishment is capable of produc ing flour equal to the Jasper, or any other fa vorite brand from below. It is also prepared to grind cattle feed of all descriptions. A mill of this kind is an accommodation long needed by St. Paul, and the enterprising owners will, as they deserve, do a fine business with it. Gratifying. —The exports, other than specie, from the port of New York, during the week ending Nov. 19th, were almost beyond prece. dent, being $2,318,000 against $1,095,000 for the same week of last year. jj— Bayard Taylor, the N. Y. Tribune's China correspondent, has sailed! for home direct, in the clipper ship Sea Serpent. We are rejoiced to learn from the Tribune that the interesting letters of Mr. Taylor, written during his two years' tour through ull parts of the old world, »lit be collected and published in book form. Galena and Minnesota Packet Company-Ar rangement for 1854.— The Galena and Minne sota Packet Company will, on the opening of navigation next season, be prepared to run a Daily Line of Packets from Galena to St. Paul. Three new Boats will be added to_the present stock, two of which are now building at Cincin nati. Said boats will be built, finished, furnish ed and fitted up in a style unsurpassed liy any boats on the western waters. This line will run in connection with the Galena A Chicago Union Railroad, the Michigan Central Railroad, the Souhcrn Michigan A Northern Indiana Railroad, tlic Chicago A Rock Island Railroad, the Illi nois Cenfrfll Railroad, and the Daily Line of Galena A St. Louis Packets, and all passengers and shippers, by either of the above lines may depend upon this line for transportation of themselves or freight, from Galena to St. Paul and intermediate ports, without delay and with out fail— Galena Jldv. The Advertiser further remarks that the new boats which this line will put into the trade will be of the first class—equal to any that float on the Western waters. Wc learn from anoth er source that Capt. R. S. Harris is to command one of the new packets, and a second will lie in charge of Capt. Morehouse, successor of M. W. Lodwlck. Capt. M. has heretofore been one of the most popular commanders in the St. Louis and Galena trade. The remaining new craft of the line it is expected will be placed in com mand of Capt. I’res. Lodwick, late of the Doc tor Franklin—a general favorite in these upper ports, and one that could not now be well spar ed from the trade. Blakely, we suppose will stick to flic Nominee, but the company will suf fer a loss almost irreparable in Brooks, who leaves to take the command of a splendid ‘ through packet ’ between here and St. Louis. Our citizens will strongly encourage this enter prise of Brooks ; and it is a matter of both in terest and pleasure to the people of Minnesota to know that although the old line loses the valuable services of Ibis gentleman, wo do not. The ‘ old Doctor ' we suppose, will eke out an other year's existence in the trade, under the command of some one—wc arc not advised who. How about the new line talked of by the gen tlemen from Dubuque a month since ? We see no mention of it in any of the papers below. A Railroad War. —A war is now raging be tween some of the railroad companies and the citizens of Eric, Fa., in which wc of Minnesota are interested, inasmuch as if the belligerent citizens carry out their threats, onr direct win ter line of travel to the East will.be broken. It is known generally, that some twenty miles of this line, extending from Erie to the New York State boundary, is a wide gage road ; and the combined companies, in order to facilitate and expedite travel and trasportation, have resolv ed to lay down a narrow track, corresponding with the roads east and west. At this some of the short-sighted citizens of Erie revolt, nnd such despatches as the following are flying from thence over the wires : There is a meeting of railroad men here to day, [the 17th nit.,] to decide upon the course to be pursued with regard to the change of gunge. The military are preparing to turn out on the call of the Mayor. A wagon load of powder has been taken to the Armory for car tridges. It is thought if there is any resistance on the part of the Railroad Companies, that flic track will lie torn up the whole length of the county', and the bridges destroyed. The peo ple arc desirous tliat the track should remain as it is, but if the Railroad Companies force them to act. there is no telling where they will stop. Our Supreme Court have decided that the Western Road has no law to protect it, and the track will lie torn up to the Ohio line.— Monday will probably decide the whole mat ter. Monday came, but no War. In fact the Cleve land Herald has “ reason to believe, wliat we suspected in the first instance, that the fooii Ji uproar in our sister city is limited to irrespon sible outsiders, who, having no real interest in the matter at all, stand in the position of med dlers and disturbers of the peace. We appre hend that, in a ease so plain as this, there can be no serious difficulty.” It is to be hoped not, certainly. The editor of the Democrat professes great horror at being called an abolitionist. Yet he was n deep sympathizer in the Van Buren movement in 1848, and would perhaps have voted for Van, had an opportunity offered ; en tered the Legislature in 1849 with avowed sentiments favoring that branch of the party; in 1850 was opposed to the Compromise mea sures, and now goes it strong on the ‘ Soft ’ side touching the New York controversy—sustain ing the Administration in its war upon such old veteran Democrats as Dickinson and Bron son, to the fullest extent. In ids last number he says:— “Wc shall give our hearty support to the present National Administration, and on all oc casions maintain and defend the time-honored principles upon which it is based.” Mr. Jonathan E. McKusick, of Stillwater has lost a very valuable pair of working cattle, a description of which will be found in our ad vertising columns. As the Holidays approach, don’t forget Combo. He is a man of decided taste, and has all the nice seasonable and fashionable articles for all kinds of people—big and little. The new card of Messrs. Brewster A Ritchie deserves attention. These gentlemen do business in a manner that cannot fail to en list entire confidence. FiKAXCiAL.-The New York Time*, of the 17th ult., has the following. Increased confidence in money affairs and stock operations is now the ruling spirit in Wall street: “ The only change in money affairs is on very choice mercantile paper, w hich,i» 'held for 10 per cent. Good lists continue to’ be sold atJl2 per cent., and railway acceptances arc occasion ally offered at much larges interest. Money at call is readily come at by stock borrowers on collaterals having every day currency at the Stock Board.’’ The failure of one or ta o J Eastern banksjind the rumored suspension of others is bringing gold to the West. The same authority states that: “Gold continues to go from Neiv York City to the Ohio country bniiksjind bankers, in ex change for large sums of New England and oth er currency, returned them for redemption.— This currency was lent, at a low interest, last summer, on railway and other negotiations, for circulation out West, audit now comes back the more rapidly than it would otherwise do, liccausc of the recent suspension of one of the Buffalo banks, nnd the alarm grow ing out of the exaggerated rumors to which these failures gave rise.” Thompson's Reporter of the latest date re ceived, characteristically speaks thus: ‘‘ln answer to a multitude of inquiries about banks, wc would say only two have failed, viz : The Bank of Massillon, Ohio, and the l’atchin Bank, of Buffalo. The many rumors about oth erjßanks are all wrong, and wc do not know where there is a decidedly doubtful one. The fright, the pressure and the danger is over, and there is an easy and prosperous future before us. Tlicre is no premium on gold, nnd we fill orders for new silver at one-half per cent.— Panic-makers' occupation’s gone—liave_niercy on croakers.” The following ‘ financial items ’ are furnished by Mr. C. 11. Barker. He will make a weekly report of such matters, through the St. Faul Frcss, for the benefit of the public : It scorns to be conceded that there lias been more money in circulation here during the past fall and up to the present time, than during the same season in any previous year. At present, time loans are made at rales, va rying from 18 to 30 per cent, per annum, with unexceptionable Real Estate security. The rates for first class 30, t>o and 90 day pa per are from 3 to 5 per cent, per month. Such paper, however, is scarce. ICO acre Land Warrants arc selling as high ns $lB5. The Bank of Owego is good.

Bank had suspended, which created a run upon it. but they redeemed promptly, in coin and drafts, ail that was pre sented at their counter, flic excitement was soon over, and, on the whole, it will be of ad vantage to them.’’ Cheat Time at WAsmxoTox.-Whon the news reached Washington that tiie Hards had beaten the Softs in New 1 ork, the adherents and sym pathisers of tlie former called a glorification meeting. Our exchanges give a spirited ac count of the a flair. The ‘ row ’ that ensued gives an insight into the harmonious state of feeling existing between the two factions at the federal city. It will not at nil surprise us to hear that the infection has extended into Con gress about these days. It maybe that a great deal of this ‘feeling’ is stirred up by rivalry I between the two Democratic papers—the Union and licvcrly Tucker's paper, the Sentinel— touching the matter of public’printing. I’cr haps our ntigiibfrs of the I’ionecr and Demo crat, having a fellow feeling with their Wash ington compatriots upon this very head, can en lighten us. But to the Washington melee. Wc i quote from tlie Cleveland Herald: “ Our old friend and former fellow citizen, Wallack. v.as the presiding officer, and among ‘ the various duties devolving upon him in Ids • i official capacity, was the necessary one of kiiock , ing down a Soft. What the damage was, doth not appear. Throw a Soft when and where you please, he will strike on his feet, for it matters not whether on his head or his heels, he will swear he is right side up any how. Mr. Corneli us W. Wendell offered resolutions declaring that the election of Gen. Pierce was in consequence ofliis unmistakeablc opposition to the opinions and conduct of the enemies of Gen. Cass iu '4B; that the Baltimore platform is not a general amnesty to all offenders ; and condemning the attempt on the part of the Departments to crush out the National Democracy in New York.— ■ Secretary Guthrie was denounced, and tlie New , 1 ork liards congraulated on their signal victo ry over the Softs. The resolutionshaving been j read, Daniel S. Ratctiffe took the platform, and , made an able speech against the resolutions— , regarding them as making a deadly thrust at ( the Administration ; and charging upon the ( movers of this meeting a design to sink the Ad- j ministration, and bring the Democratic parly j into disgrace. The speech created great excite- t ment, and-the sneaker evidently carried with him the sympathies of a large portion of the meeting. Mr. Wendell rose to reply to Mr. R. z amid much excitement, and said that he was li one of those who had been instrumental in hav- 0 ing the meeting called, and proceeded at con- g sideraldc length to advocate the resolutions. w lias the President, he asked, carried out the \ principles of the Democratic party ? [A hoist- ti erous response, Yea and No made by gentlemen d present—the former, apparently predominating. e< The Chair called to order. To quell the excite- M meat, the band in attendance commenced to play, but the music was nearly drowned in cheer* for Dickinson.] Somebody moved that the subject before the meeting be indefinitely postponed. Another gentleman wished to offer a substitute for the resolutions before the meet ing. Before the question was distinctly pot, Wm. If. Thomas, Deputy Collector, sprang up on the platform and moved an adjournment; but before putting the question, proposed three cheers for the Administration, which, being heartily responded to, Mr. Wallack, the Chair man, struck Mr. Thomas, and knocked him from the platform, whereupon a general melee en sued. which lasted several minutes, but which resulted in no very serious bruises. The meet ing was thus broken up, and the National Dem ocrats then proceeded to serenade Beverly Tuck- Ax Iron Mvse. —A Cincinnati contemporary compliments (?) as follows a late effusion of the gifted lady named:— ” We give a striking fragment of poetry by Alice Cary, this morning. It is intensely vi gorous in thought, and has an iron compactness of expression.’’ Wc should scarcely think Miss Alice would feel highly complimented at this. Iron is very good in its place—for railroads, stoves, horse shoes, and the like—but to be drawn out into the delicate threads ot poesy, and wove into ‘ a concord of sweet sounds'—how rude and vul gar ! It grates upon the poetic car as the din of driving rivets into a steam boiler. Lolls Napoleon at a Horse Race. —A Paris correspondent of the New York Tribune gives the following interesting item in relation to the Emperor of Franco at a horse race : “ The Emperor and Empress came on the field in an open calecho, drawn by four horses, with four similar carriages following, containing their suite, but without military escort. They stepped out of their carriage into the crowd, and passing through a narrow opening that ivas made for them spontaneously by the people without the aid of policemen, they passed to the imperial stand, in front of which six soldiers were drawn up to present arms, while another gave the imperial rap, tap, on the drum. As the Emperor passed along, recognizing here and there an acquaintance, the people took off their hats as they do on meeting a friend ; but there was no cheering; the bourgeois never shout •‘Vive l'Emperor”—they leave that to hired chiffoniers. The Emperor has again that sallow bloated appearance which he wore more than a year ago, and from which he had partly recov ered ; lie begins to stoop, and when he walks, liears heavily on his stick, as if he required its support to sustain himself. Schemers against the life of Louis Napoleon have no need to jeo pardise their lives in attempts upon his, for na ture will have accomplished its work with his body liefore many years roll around. It is ex ceedingly rare to see a man with his peculiar dead appearance of the skin, with such manifest indications of imperfect secretion, hold on to life as tenaciously as he does. It is still more rare to see a man recover from this condition.” Stillwater Deserted. —Wc have noticed sonic eight or ten of the most prominent citi zens of Stillwater in town the past few days. Wc are glad to see our outside friends in the city occasionally, partaking of the good things thereof, and getting -posted np' in the news, movements and fashions hereabouts. —The Ladies of the Second Fresbyterian church contemplate giving a supper—the time of which dne notice will be given—the pro ceeds to be devoted to finishing the church. Olmsted says he is not in the habit of co pying into liis own columns personal compli ments from other editors. Who ever knew him to receive one ? Tin: Siovx.—The Fioncer and Democrat both state that these Indians will he promptly sent back to their limiting grounds by the authori ties, if they make their appearance in the white settlements. Preparations are making to observe Thanksgiving Day in a Incoming manner at the First Presbyterian Church. Tlie Democrat editor talks of starting a daily.

Taylor's Falls, Monday, Oct. 7, ’63. Chisago, Minnesota Territory, was organized as a separate county on the Ist of January, 1852. It is situated between 45 deg. 18 min. south, and G 4 deg. 30 min. north, varying from 13 to 32 miles in width, including an area of more than 2 000 square miles. At the time of the organization of the coun ty the permanent population, most'of whom were settled at Taylor's Falls, the county scat, or within a few miles of that place, did not ex ceed 200. The floating population engaged in the luml)cr business would swell the above amount to GOO or 700. Since that time the pop ulation has been fast increasing, though not with that extreme rapidity incident to some other parts of the Territory. The entire population of the county at the present time, including both permanent and transient, is estimated nt I,COO or 1,700. Nor is there a country often found, not even California excepted, where the inhabitants in general are subject to so many exposures, which would seem to undermine health, constitution, and cause premature death. During the winter, seldom a night occurs but some of those engaged in drawing supplies, for want of better accommodations, arc compelled to make the snow their bed. Thisclassof individuals seldom suffer, as they anticipate the reality and supply themselves with blankets and provisions. Vet many a lone traveler lias been obliged to wrap about him the scanty clothing he chanced to wear at the time, with neither the means of kindling a fire to warm the chilled frame nor food to appease liis hunger. We shall pass hastily over those engaged di rectly in cutting and drawing out logs, for, not withstanding their labors are intense, and though they never heed the cold, not even when the mercury congeals, no occupation can be more healthy. Their camps are warm and com fortable, their food of the first quality, and lucky is the man who is at liberty to exercise freely in the clear, bracing atmosphere of a Minnesota winter. But, during tlic spring anil early sum mer months, the exposures of many of them could hardly he greater. We refer to those en gaged on the drive, fliat is those who drive out the logs from tlic smaller streams into the St. Croix, and thence to the St. Croix boom, five miles below Taylor's Falls, where they are col lected, assorted, sealed, and delivered to their several owners. When the stage of water is favorable, it mat ters not what is the weather, not a day, not ev en a Subbath excepted, must be lost, lor the loss of a single day not unfrcquently prevents the lumberman from being able to market his logs the first seasons, which equally atUctstlic in terest of operator and laborer, ns the contract between the employer and employee is, that no man's wages are due till the logs are sent to market and returns received therefor. To sum tip their exposures in a few words, it is one continued scene, from Hie latter part of March till June or July, of severe labor both in the water and out by day, anil sleeping in their wet anil sometimes frozen clothes at night. At the boom to which we before referred, from some time in April till midsummer, the number of men employed, including raftsmen, varies from fifty to two hundred. Their labors are severe in the hot, scalding sun, frequently in the water, while a change of dress on account of wet is seldom thought of. During the summer months not only the bus iness men are continually passing to and from St. Louis and other points on the Mississippi, but hundreds are engaged as pilots and labor ers. in running rafts of lumber and logs from the boom and other points on the St. Croix riv er and lake to their destination at the larger towns on the Mississippi, exposing themselves to all the diseases so prevalent at that season of the year. But a small share of the mentioned class are residents of this county, yet most of them are within the borders of it a portion of t!ic season. A colony of Swedes and Norwegians, now amounting to three or four hundred, have set tled in the county, twelve or fifteen miles west of Taylor's Falls. Owing to the distance tliev are compelled to travel and often with scanty means, most of them perforin their journey in the most economical manner. While on t'ee cars the third class must answer their turn, on stcam- Imats they are literally packed in the steerage cabins, the hot-heds of disease. When they arrive at their destination, till a temporary shelter can lie erected, they are com pelled to sleep in the open air. or crowd into the close, narrow dwellings of some of their Swedish friends. One more fact mnst not pass unnoticed. With in the space of time l am about to mention, not less than thirty or forty infants have been born in the county, and in the majority of eases with out medical aid or advice lor either mother or child. Tet with all the exposures of the different classes we have mentioned, with an average population for two years past of one thousand, including transient and others, and ns before estimated, a present population of sixteen or seventeen hundred, so far as my knowledge ex : tends, and I have made much inquiry from peo ple living indifferent localities since theorgan izution of the County, the Ist day of January. 1852. now nearly two years, not a single death of adult, child, or infant has occurred.

The National Democrats.—This faction late ly held a meeting in the city of New York, to make arrangements for a great demonstration in honor of their late victory over the Admin istration Softs. Francis B. Cutting, a memlier elect to the next'Congress, was present, and used the following significant language : “We will teach the late Mr. Guthrie, before he is blown out of his boots by Mr. Bronson, if there is any vitality left in him. to mind his own business and take care of himself. [Ap plause.] If not, we will appoint a committee to take charge of him, for lie is manifestly un able to do so. We shall believe the acts of Mr. Fierce and not his professions, for it is by the acts of a man that he should be judged. .Men talk of being Fierce men, Ac., but I shall l>c no man's man. I mean to be a man of the Demo cratic party—to endeavor if I can to carry out its principles. If Gen. Fierce conforms to these principles, just so far will I support him. If he (locs not. just exactly so far as lie retrenches from them. I mean to attack him and the Ad ministration.

After com menting on the too deferential lone w hich lias heretofore prevented the British in China and the Dutch in Japan from obtaining the privi leges which are accorded by other nations to commercial intercourse, the Spectator dwells on the advantages which resulted from the pro ceedings of our gallant Commodore, in break ing down the first and most difficult barrier, overruling the absolute exclusion heretofore practised, exhibiting tiie power of his country, and dictating tlie terms of his first interview iiitii the head ol the Japanese Government. 1 lie New \\ orld lias thus given another lesson to the experienced statesmen of the Old.
