SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA TERRITORY, SATURDAY, MAY 27, 1854. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 22, JB.U New Arrangement. Wo arc happy to announce to the subscribers of the Minnesotian, and the people of Minneso ta generally, that an arrangement has been en tered into, which will greatly facilitate and add to the efficiency of the editorial, mechanical and business departments of the concern. Here after, Mr. 11. I*. I’ratt, late of Skowhegan, Maine, will be equally interested with us in the management of the Minnesotian. Mr. I*, but recently left the editorial chair of the People's Tress, at Skowhegan, a paper widely known in that section of the country as one of the most efficient political and news journals of the State. He is a practical printer ; an editor of some twenty years' experience, nntl brings with him into the Minnesotian establishment all the ben efits arising from this practice and experience, as well as a large addition to the financial cap ital ot the concern, and a determination to make Minnesota his future home—laboring with all his energies for her advancement and welfare. Ry this arrangement, any thing that may have been heretofore wanting to render the Daily and Weekly Minnesotian equal in all re spects to the best commercial and news journals published in any of the western cities, is entirely supplied. We have it now in our power, by a proper division of labor among ourselves, to keep all departments of the establishment— business, mechanical and editorial—in proper and correct order, and to leave nothing undone which w ill tend to make the Minnesotian a use ful, desirable and acceptable journal. The editorial course of the paper will not vary from that heretofore pursued. Politi cally its touc will be the same, and as a Terri torial sheet, it will still strive to bring about the development of the resources of Minnesota as rapidly as possible, and to advocate such local measures as will best promote this great end, without regard to the party or the men who may be their originators and supporters. Trusting the new arrangement will be en tirely satisfactory to our readers, we start forth under it with renewed courage, ami n determi nation to leave nothing undone which may tend to a thorough fulfillment of the duties de volving upon us—jointly and individually. Dows ox Cad Liquor.— The Ohio Legislature has passed a “Liquor Law" w hich by many is considered a great improvement upon the “Maine Law," or any other plan yet devised to forward the cause of Temperance. One of its chicf provisions is its hostility to all kinds and species of adulterated liquors. The Cleveland Leader gives the following brief synopsis or the act: Ist. The act provides that the Probate Judge shall appoint a competent Chemist for the county, whose duty it shall be to inspect anil analyse all liquors offered for sale,nt whole sale or retail, and pronounce upon their purity or adulteration. 2d. That no liquor shall be sold unless it lias been inspected, and pronounced unadulter ated by the County Chemist, whose seal is the evidence of inspection; or the ingredients and properties used to make adulterated liquors must l>o exposed by the inspector, so as to pre vent fraud and imposition on the customer. 3d. Any liquors offered for sale, which arc not inspected, are liable to seizure and destruc tion, and the owner to fine ami imprisonment. 4 th. If adulterated liquor is placed in a ves sel which bears the inspector’s seal of having once contained a pure article, the owner or persons committing the fraud is liable to fine and imprisonment, and the second olfensc in the State’s prison. The inspector is entitled to $2 per day for his services, besides mileage, to be paid by the persons whose liquors are inspected. These, says the L-ade-, are the lea ling fea tures of the law. ‘ The provisions are backed up by severe penalities. The law is a \ cry important one. The community suffer enor mously from the horrid concoctions of delete rious and poisonous drugs which compose the major part of alcoholic liquors kept for sale in the State. Very little brandy or wine is una dulterated. Very few have any idea of the ex tent to which drugging liquors is carried, or the amount of injury indicted on the health of the silly fool who swallows the miserable com pound. The effect of the law, if enforced, will be to raise the price of liquors, and consequent ly reduce its consumption.’’ The Cincinnati Enquirer, remarking upon the effect of the law, after stating that it will be generally enforced, says: “This law every one will admit is a very stringent and searching one. It is a more effi cient one, by far, than what is called the Tem perance law; wll l>e more generally executed and will do more good. It will strike a heavy blow at poison-making, poison-vending and poison-drinking, and must thereby necessarily effect a great deal of good in Ohio. One of our most learned and experienced physicians and professors remarked to us a few weeks since, that the diseases called mania a pntu and de lirium tremens, now so common and so fatal to intemperate persons, were modern diseases, which were not known in the practice until after the adulteration of liquors and the manufacture of stimulant poisons were engaged in this country. They are the effects of excesses in drinking bud whiskey; for most of our com mon brandies and Irish liquors are but corn or braley whisky mixed with drugs. The exis tence of this law will be unwelcome news in some quarters, while its execution w ill be joy ful intelligence to the commnnitv.” f.S" The editor of the Newark Herald is evi dently short of “ pbunds," aud is stirring up his patrons, he says : “We cannot help thinking how mnch easier an editor s life might be made, if his generous patrons could only hear his “ better half” scraping the bottom of the*flour barret! A man that can write editorials with such music sound ing in his ears, can easily walk the telegraph wires and turn somersets in the branches of a thorn bush.” Arkansas La mcs.—Some Arkansas man, in whom the Promethean burns as brightly as a prairie on lire, addresses a song to a candidate for Coagress. The following chorus will give some idea of the writer’s talent:— Go it, Evan®, wl:h a sqneeze, Or fto it with a looseues*; Or k o the figure a* you please, But don’t betray your gooseuess. New York, May 12. The caloric ship Ericsson has been raised and moved into shallow water. Two-thirds of the diameter of her wheels are out of the water aud she will probably float noxc high tide. Office—Third Street, below Cedar. | lU\sit for Land. —The large body of rich and | desirable land, which has so long rested almost i unnoticed, situated from ten to twenty-live at thirty miles north of St. Paul, is now beginning lo attract the attention of settlers. There has been a general rush to secure favorite locations ,in that region. One of our land agents forcibly illustrate* the degree of interest excited, by the remark tiiat •• the woods and prairies out that way are all the while black with people, looking for land.’’ This is about the best news for St. Paul we have been able to communicate this spring. Only let these rich farming lands be properly developed, and we have enough sus taining power in this one region to keep a city three times as large as ours in active operation. Let us have that aforesaid road direct from St. Paul to Snake river as soon as possible. Removed to the Lake. —Mr. R. F. Slaughter, who until last winter, had been a faithful at tache of the Minnesotian office from the day of its establishment, left for his new home on Lake Superior, by the Galena on Thursday eve ning, taking his family with him. He goes by way of Chicago and the Saul. Having been faithful over few things, we are rejoiced at his fine prospect of soon becoming ruler over many. Success to him! Anoka Mill. —The last St. Anthony Demo crat states that one saw is now in running or der at this mill, and the first log was sawed on Thursday last. A great amount of money has been expended on the water power at Anoka, and the Democrat considers it a desirable place for business. Tin: River continues to rise rapidly at this point. There is a possibility of the w ater reach ing more than the average flood height in the Minnesota. Some ten feet water is now found upon the Little Rapids. The logs commenced running over the Falls o( St. Anthony yester day, and the boom is already nearly full. jTi?' The murder by William- occurred at Davenport instead of Rock Island, as stated on Saturday. Wc learned by the Nominee that a reward had been offered for his apprehension. Congress. —At last accounts, which are to Monday last, the Nebraska excitement still raged furiously in the House. They had passed through a thirty-five hours'session, which en ded very nearly in a fight between Campbell, ol Ohio, and Kdmunson, of Virginia. The op ponents of the bill are resisting its passage with that high and holy courage which is always possessed by men who know and feel they arc in the right. What will be the final resu’t we cannot predict, but the chances arc still in fa vor of the passage of the infamous bill, provid ed the House rati hr kept togrthrr. The Gale na Advertiser of Thursday advises the opposi tion to “take the mildest possible course essen tial to defeat the billJ’ The Advertiser states in the same article that there is a report that the anti-Nebraska members had their resig nations prepared, and would, if necessary to prevent the passage of the bill, resign in a body, and thus, as far as in their power, throw the question upon the people. JFS" The Admiral arrived from below yes terday afternoon, bringing a large number of passengers aud a heavy freight. The news, however is not later than that received by the Nominee. She will return this morning. Fatal Accident. —An active, intelligent boy, son of Louis Tipcl, residing on St. Anthony st., was this morning run over by a loaded wagon. Against the remonstrances of his uncle, who was driving, he was playfully endeavoring to climb in, when he fell, and one of the wheels passed over him. Dr. Willey was immediately in attendance, but the vital spark had fled. The base of the skull, was greatly fractured.— Democrat, Sat. evening. The Ramsey Investigation. —The following proceedings took place in the Senate, on the Bth : Mr. Sebastian. I offer the following resolu tion, and ask for its consideration now : • Resolved, That the report of the Commission ers appointed by the President of the United States, to investigate the official conduct of Alexander Ramsey, late Governor of Minneso ta Territory, be printed for the use of the Sen ate. There being no objection, the Senate proceed ed to the consideration of the resolution. Mr. Stuart. I ask the Senator from Arkan sas to modify his resolution so as to embrace the testimony in the case. Mr. Sebastian. The Commissioners reported the testimony to us. and that is really w hat we are anxious to get at. Mr. Stuart. I think it would be better to add “ and testimony.” Mr. Sebastian. 1 accept the modification. The resolution, as modified, was agreed to. The RAtT.noAP. —Some of our neighbors, in copying an article from the Galena Advertiser, hare slightly misled their readers in regard to the present state of the Railroad Land Bill. When the Nebraska bill was taken up on the morning of the Bth, our bill went over with other unfinished Territorial business, and will come up again, without a vote of the House, whenever Territorial business is again the or der of the day. It is regarded as almost cer tain then to pass by those who arc best inform ed upon the subject. It is true, we presume, as the Advertiser states, that the bill w as drawn up by Hon. 11. 11. Sibley, but upon a plan pre viously agreed to by all the parties interest ed—Minnesotians and all others. All of our citizens, those yet at Washington as well as those who have returned, so far as we can learn, worked their hardest to get the measure before the. House in proper shape, and all deserve a share of thanks at the hands of the people. From Australia.—A great fire occurred nt Hobart Town, on the 21st January, destroying property to the value of half a million of dol lars. Mining was prosperous. A nugget of nearly pure gold had been found near Mel bourne, weighing over 52 pounds. The Erie Troubles Ended. —By a recent bill which has passed the Pennsylvania Legislature, the ground of the railroad difficulty at Erie is removed, and the cars will pass through that city hereafter on a uniform gunge. “ The Galena Member'’ Again : “Mr. Washburne has ‘no doubt made his mark.’ blit we have the most positive and relia ble assurances that his whole influence has been cast against the Minnesota Rill, and that he has ‘deceived the citizens and Delegate’ of Minne sota, who are ‘oil the ground' watching him. Of course not being ‘on the ground,’ we mav he • deceived,’ but our information comes from too reliable a source to Ik: either mistaken in what it believes, or doubted in w hat it states.— DuhliyUe .-terald. This is what the Herald says in reply to our remarks, published on the Cth instant, vindicat" ing Mr. \\ a.sbburne from the charge of opposi tion in Congress to the interests of Minnesota. 1\ e again say to the Herald, it is grossly de ceived. It need only go to the record of the last Territorial week in Congress to become convinced of this fact. Rut if the editor wishes to go behind the record, we are ready for him even there. Mr. Washburne'scourse, publicly and privately, upon the Minnesota Railroad Rill, which was before the House on the Cth— the very day we here in St. Raul vindicated ! him from unjust suspicions —is not only satis factory to every citizen of .Minnesota then at the capital, but in the highest degree commend able. It also meets the entire approbation of the very men w hom we think the Herald is try ing to indirectly please by abusing him. The Herald will please understand that we have the documents to prove what wc assert, and it may as well give up all further controversy upon the subject. Additional Mail Service to Minnesota.— l nder this head, the Galena Advertiser of Mon day makes the following statement. While we have no right to set up as judges of the merits of the quarrel between Galena and Dubuque, weean say, from what wc have heard from, other sources, that the statement is correct, so far as regards the action of the Department at Washington. What influence it was that de termined Mr. Campbell lo treat us so unjustly wc know nothing of beyond what is here charg ed. Wc do know, however, that Mr. Rice, Mr. Washburne, and other North-Western men at Washington, have done their utmost iu the premises, and if they have failed, the blame rests not with them : “ The efforts of Mr. Rice, of Minnesota, and Mr. Washburne, of this district, to get addition al mail service for our Minnesota friends, have failed, by reason of some unseen iufltieiice, but which we think may be readily understood. The Galena and Minnesota Packet Company now carry the mail to St. Paul for the small pittance of fifty dollars for the round trip, and they offer to carry it six times a week for the same pro rata pay. Tiiat, wc undertake to say, is the cheapest mail service in the United States, and yet, some two hundred thousand people are only allowed a tri-weekly mail on the pretence, that it would cost the Depart ment one hu dred and fifty dollars per week additional, to give them a daily mail. The pre text is contemptible, and only to hide the real motive. It appears that the Tost Office De partment is no longer w ielded for the public good, but as a means of gratifying favorite dem ocratic interests, and pandering to private and local resentments. The removal of the Distri buting Post Office to Dubuque, which has de ranged the whole mail service of this part of the country, is proof of this. Political and lo cal grudges are now to be ‘ fed fat' by punish ing the Minnesota people for not doing their business at Dubuque, and the Postmaster Gen eral refuses to give them a mail but three times a week. We think the people of. Minnesota will understand this.'’ ■Sg_. Among arrivals home of St. Paul citi zens since our last, we notice that of ('apt. Alex. Wilkin, who has been absent at the East since March. Pleasantries in Congress. —ln the House of Representatives recently, Mr. Gipdincs, of Ohio, and Mr. Smith, of Virginia, each arose to per sonal explanation, in the course of w hich Mr. G hidings “accused Mr. Smith of resorting to falsehood, and having fabricated misrepresen tations ill his sterile brain.” Mr. Smith, in re turn, said that Mr. Gildings “used language notin the vocabulary of gentlemen, but such as only could be learned by association with free negroes.’’ Their entertainment lasted just two hours, for which Uncle Samuel paid about $4,000! The Governor of Utah. —The way Gov. Young of Utah keeps his “subjects" in order and makes them attend to their business, would be a caution to the “lazy landless” the Pio neer was speaking of last week. Hero is his last proclamation: Hear te ! all te Inhabitants oe Utah Ter ritory.—As the elements arc again favorable for field duties, in plowing, sowing and plant ing, it is highly desirable, and earnestly con ceded, by the best experience and judgment in our possession, that every person in our differ ent settlements, now begin, and continue to use all reasonable individual exertion to raise all the grain, vegetables, fruit, stock. Ac., possi ble; that ourselves, travelers, and immigrants may rejoice in au abundance of the rich bount ies of the earth, which are designed by a kind Providence for the sustenance ofinen. To ac complish this, it will lx- necessary to extend a due portion of the cave, labor, and skill requi site to manage a large field, or herd, to the smallest garden spot, and a single animal, that nothing be overlooked, or neglected in attain ing the desired object. It will also be necessa ry to put the fences in a suitable condition to protect the crops, that our expectations be not destroyed, noronr labor expended for naught. It is also advisable, to liegin this season to build store houses, in which to preserve all I he surplus grain; that we may be able to supply the demand which will be made upon us for provisions to support the laborers on the Pa cific Railroad. Herein is wisdom, therefore, pay attention. BRIGHAM YOUNG. TheTanageb. —Tbisis a rare species of b!rl in this region, but of plumage almost equal to any of the gay-feathered tribes of the tropics. The tanager is seen thus far north, only in small flocks, for a few days at the season of the year when the oak leaves are putting forth. Jlc feeds upon a substance generated by this spe cies of vegetation during its first growth. Dur ing the passage up of the steamer Grand Prai rie a few days since,a flock ot tanagers took ref uge on board the boat from the storm. One of them was captured, and has been setured by Mr. Martin, of the Ilypodrome, Roberts Street, lie appears to enjoy his e-god iife very quiet ly- A Horrid Wretch. — The c-Rtor of the Al bany Dutchman asks tbo q. lion : “ What is a Bloomer?” and answers it himself by saying “ It is a woman who pants for notoriety !” TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 23. 1834 The Man who <lld not DDrover hit Mistake soon enooglt. The Pioneer of yesterday grow Is “ like a bear with a sore head," because we took occasion, in very mild terms, to point out the ridiculous po sition it had placed itself in. by its awkward hack-out from its first assumed ground upon the Homestead Rill. It had better cease its futile attempts to justify that ridiculous blunder ; for in surging and plunging about iu the Stygian pool which it has created, it only continues to near the dominions of Pluto more rapidly than its previous impetus in that direction had allotted as its ultimate fate. We have an anecdote applicable to this late discovery of its “ mistake."’ by the Pioneer, which we will relate, and then let the matter rest, for to-day at least: Down in Ohio, once upon a time, and not many years ago. there was a good-natured fel low who in the winter time followed the busi ness of “ logging" in the woods. One day he was out in a “ good snow," of a clear cold day. j with a brisk yoke of young cattle attached to his “ bolt-sled," engaged in hauling to the mill the logs of a sturdy white-oak which he had previously felled, lie was in the act of secur ing his log—the chain having been passed around it, after one end was upon the sled, when looking around for his key. used to pass through the “ coggle-link,’’ he discovered that he had dropped it at a distance about as far as be could reach, by a hard effort, from where he was standing. Not wishing to lose the hold of the chain upon the log, he very recklessly passed the fore-finger of one hand through the link, while with the other hand he made a long reach for the key. Just at that moment the team, becoming uneasy, made a start—drag ging the poor logger, with the whole weight of the draught upon his unfortunate finger, the distance of a rod or two before he could stop it. It may readily be conceived that his criesof “ whoa! whoa!” before the team came to a stand-still were beseechingly piteous. He arose from the ground with his hand severely lacerated. In his after narrations of this unfor tunate adventure, lie always wound up the story by protesting that “he never discovered his mistake till after the cattle had started /" So with the editor of the Pioneer: If the “ cattle'’ —as the over-bearing and purse-proud of all countries usually choose to style tiic po tr and landless—had remained perfectly quiet un der the insulting epithets of that communica tion, his mistake would never have been dis covered. jfPr IVe understand the Packet Company are endeavoring to purchase the steamer Lady Franklin, to take the place of the “Old Doc tor" in the line. AVc hope they Diav succeed, and that she will be placed in command off apt. P. Lodwick. The Lady F. is a fine and fast-fly ing craft, late of the Louisville and St. Louis packet line. Arrest or a Forger. —Some time since, a man named Ransom T. Arnold was accused of forgery to tl.c amount of $llOO, at Pen dan, New d’ork. The proofs were strong agninst him, and he fled to Minnesota, whither he w*as pursued, after being indicted, by Mr. Denning, one of the sufferers by the transaction, who ar rived here a few days since. Officer 1-armor, Deputy Sheriff of Ramsey County, getting on the track of the criminal, made it his business, —with a warrant in his pocket from Gov. Gor man, issued upon a requisition from the Gover nor of New York—to visit Traverse dcs Sioux, where he found the gentleman last Saturday, resting in that easy security which is imagined to exist among our frontier settlements, and in a verv quiet but determined manner walked him on board the Black Hawk, w hich w as pass ing down about that time. Fpon his arrival at St. Paul, Arnold was handed over to his pur suer, and rather reluctantly took passage cn the Admiral yesterday —cn route for the scene of his illegal transactions. The Berlin. —Under the new order of things recently consummated with the Government officers and the lumbermen, the steamer Berlin has been discharged from Government service. The Galena Jeffersonian, of Saturday, thus no tices her arrival at that port:— “ The short-horned, pot-bellied, slow-running steamer Berlin, late under command of Com modore Estes, of the United States lumber seiz ing service, was in port yesterday. She is about to engage in a more laudable business, her late Commodore having been arrested in bis ‘ mad career,’ by the determination of the authori ties at Washington, to take other steps than those lately pursued, to protect their timber lands. This determination loses the govern ment a very industrious officer, kuocksthe Ber lin out of a contract by which her owners were making fifty dollars r. day, and relieves lumber men of the necessity of committing homicide in defence of themselves and their property ; —for all of which we should bo profoundly thankful. We would suggest to our Representative in Congress, the propriety of obtaining from the proper office at Washington, a balance sheet, setting forth in good commercial style, the re ceipts and expenditures—the profit and loss — of the Berlin’s cruise. The curiosity of the pub lic on this point should be gratified.” J&T" We are happy to announce the return, by the War Eagle yesterday, of J. L. Stryker. F.sq„ late of New- York, who, It will be recol lected, visited Minnesota last summer, and de termined to take up his future residence in St. Paul.
