For Democratic' Delegate to Coogrou,
We copy the following just and
truthful remarks relative to the charac
ter, qualifications, and position of Mr.
Olmsted, the Democratic nominee for
Delegate to Congress, from the Pioneer.
Those who personally know Mr. Olm
sted will heartily endorse every syllable
contained in it.. He is a man entitled
to the esteem of the whole people. He
has been tried and found to possess all
those qualities of mind and heart neces
sary to the able, faithful, and honest
discharge of every public duty. The
people here in Benton County need not
be told who or what David Olmsted is.
He is esteemed as not only an able but
an honest man :
“ The Democratic Candidate.—
The old settlers of the Territory from
one end of it to the other, will notneed
to be told anything of David Olmsted,
the present Democratic nominee for
Congress. Not only his private but his
political life, are familiar to them, and
we venture nothing when we say that
he is esteemed by all for his long tried
probity and consistency in both. His
modest and retiring disposition may not
have placed him so conspicuously before
the people of the Territory of late, as
some others who earnestly sought the
people’s gilts aud favor, but his name
and reputation aro broad .spread, and
favorably recognised even among the
new comers among us.
A Democrat of the strictest charac
ter, firm, undeviating and progressive
—possessed of all the qualities which
go to make a competent legislator—in
structed in the ways of legislative bodies
—bold but prudent—possessed of the
power of winning and retaining friends,
and in the full flush of life, he combines
all that could be desired in a candidate,
by the people of the Territory at large,
and his merits will bear tbe closest
Mr. Olmsted has always been an ac
tive member of the Democratic party
from the beginning of its existence here,
and he has by general consent been re
cognised as one of its most approved
and reliable leaders. He has never
faltered in his duty towards it, but both
with voice and pen has sought earnestly
to promote its interests. No temptation
has ever led him aside, and we point to
him proudly as being one against whom
no charge of political or other corrup
tion can be made.
He is before the people on the old
Democratic track, and the prospect is
bright in his behalf. The people of
Minnesota, the Democracy especially,
will honor themselves and do justice to
him by sending him as their next Dele
gate to Congress.
ggp** Mr. Lander, Chief Engineer of
Gov. Stevens’ Great Northern Pacific
Rail Road Survey, in regard to the
crossing of the Mississippi River, says :
“ Near the mouth of Sauk River the
crossing is about 500 feet. By encoun
tering the current near the Rapids, an
excellent foundation for bridge masonry
can be obtained updn the great ledge of
the section.
I have estimated the cost of a bridge
at Sauk Rspids, for a Road-bed of 20
feet as follows :
500 of How’s truss at $26, $10,500
1353 cubic vds bridge masonry, at sl2 16,236
Preparing foundations—say 1,000
Summing up the matter, it seems evi
dent that the proper course of the sur
vey would be up the East shore of the
Mississippi River to Sauk Rapids, thence
on the Red River trail towards the head
waters of Satfk 'Sufficient relia
ble information is afforded to prove to
us that a very excellent route can thus
be secured.”
jsgpThere have been, during 4h& warm
weather of this month, a few eases of
sickpess in this neighborhood. With
the rapidly increasing {Population of
this portion of ouf county a good Phy
sician is much needed. We are now
60 miles from any reliable medical aid
in one direction, and the nearest is 50
miles. If Dr. Simonton, of Joliet, in
whom we have confidepce ; and who
partly promised last spring, that he
would. Pome and settle among ns,
would do so this season, we should/ be
glad. We needa man who understands
his profession. : Lot no one think that
because we live in a new coUutry, We
shall be satisfied with illiterate qufccJtf
ery. We expect an educated mau--
and would prefer experience added.

people of‘Minnesota know Mr. Olmsted,
and have concluded to have him repre
sent them in the next Congress, as their
Delegate, the small talk of tbe Rice
papers to the contrary, notwithstanding.
We take the subjoined froth an exchange
and commend it to the perusal of our
"Tam MAN of the People. —Spite
of all the efforts which have and are be
ing made to crush him, the man of the
people, David Olmsted, continues to
progress in favor and popularity. His
opponents begin to look' with fear and
trembling upon the qtiiet but rapidly ex
tending movements which menace their
defeat and his triumph.
There is much in a party’s being able
to present as a candidate a man whose
own merits constitute a recommenda
tion sufficient to entitle him to a post-of
honor. There is much in feeling assur
ed that a man honestly feels, thinks and
acts, and will 90 represent his party,
and that there can be no fear of his de
parture from duty either as regards him
self or constituents.
It is not every man who is fitted to be
a legislator. He should know the peo
ple whom he represents by pefgunal
knowledge as a general thing, and
knowing their ways and their wants,
have the ability, energy and skill to use
his positon as Representative, to their
best advantage. To know the people
of this Territory onO must travel far,
and mingle familiarly with those who
are within its borders. They do not all
live alike, and their interests are very
diverse. It requires a well ballanced
mind to note and weigh these differen
ces, add an actual life among them to
ascertain correctly what is best for them
art#* for the Territory.
David plipstad’s name is a familiar
sourid even to many who never saw him,
and the good report which he,in years
gone by honestly earned, is coming
back to him now from every quarter in
the thankful feeling of the people at
large that he has been chosen the stan
dard-bearer of the Democracy. Most
emphatically he is the man of the peo
ple, and tbe Democracy when they ral-

Whoever before heard of a Demo

its principles.— Minnesota Pioneer.
This Convention certainly erred in
failing to adopt a platform of principles.

the subsequent proceedings affirming
the adhesion of those claiming to be the

In alluding to the above extracts, the
St, Paul Democrat says:
“Alarming announcements, truly, and
calculated to create great excitement
in political circles.'

But thig is not all. This was,
sure, a culpable and unusual omission
in a Convention claiming to be Demo
ocratic, and is itself enough to excite
the suspicion and indignation of every
honest democrat. But you went further
in the manifestation of your hostility to
the Democratic Party. Your Conven

to dear that rumors, false in eve*y par
ticular, are being industriously circu-,
rated relative to. the causes which in
duced Mr. Olmsted, about a year since,
todhfcofttmuQ' his connection with the
Minnesota Democrat. Being conver
sant with the facta in the case, I feel
that I would be doing that gentleman
injustice, did I not lay them before your
readers. This must be my apology for
seeming to interfere in your political

home in Minnesota—if they permit idle
assertions against that gentleman to in

for Delegate to Congress it the ensuing
Any thing I might say to the old citi
zens of Benton relative to Mr. Olmsted,
would be superfluous. They know him—
and know him to be an honorable and
high-minded man; but as there are ma
ny in your county who have recently
come to our Territory, and as it is evi
dently to mislead such that rumors det
rimental to this gentleman are being
heralded forth, I will state the causes
that iuduced Mr. Olmsted to abandon
the Democrat, after having at immense
labor, sacrifice and expense secured for
his peper the largest circulation of any
in the Territory, and gained for it a high
and enviable position throughout the
United States.
Prior to the campaign of 1853, it was
understood the gentleman who then con
ducted the Democrat, was anxious to
dispose of the paper, and he and
the prominent members of the parly op
posed to the nomination of Mr. H. M.
Rice for Delegate to Congress, com
menced looking rodtid for a suitable per
son to take the responsible position of
conductor of the Democratic'Organ.—
The integrity, talents, and unswerving
Democracy of Mr. Olmsted, pointed him
out as the proper person, if he could be
induced to take it. At first thatgeutle
man refused, but finally yielded to the
entreaties of his friends, and entered
upon the thankless task; and the bril
liant victories achieved by our party
throughout the Territory, that fall, am
ply attest his powers as a convincing
and fearless editor.
During the session of the Legislative
Assembly of 1854, a bill granting a
Charter to the Minnesota and North-
Western Railroad Company, was intro
duced into that body. Mr. Olmsted’s
Argue eye soon s£lcovered the effect
that swindling charter would have upon
the interests and the rights of the pio
neers of our Territory, and unaided by
a single paper in the Territory, he open
ed his batteries upon that measure and
clearly demonstrated what
has since proven, that the chiurtpr was
only obtained to fill tt»e iaoffers of the
Corporators oaAa ipvr reckless adven-
ifi of the P eo P le of
the TflC&Ofy. Convinced he was in
duty; in the castigations he
ttjfrllmifcftoed to the aiders and abettors
of the movement, he loss sight of friend
ly ties, and official position, and boldlyj
contended against the soulless corpora
tion, and for the people's rights.
I neglected to state in the proper
piece thdt as Mr. Olmsted’s means were
not, ayailabW time he took tbp
Democrat, D A. J. Baker, Esq., then
ope of Glamorous opponents Mr.
Rice had, foith an air of disinterested
friendship, came forward and purchas
ed the oiffice for him, with the Under
standing that the funds so advanced
ft.otild be returned**with interest, and a
large portion of it was so returned, be
fore he relinquished the establishment

mania seemed to take possession of Me.

and piany
given by him hefore the Committee
pointed by to ascertain by
whom the fraud in the bill that robbtfd
Minnesota of the most munificent grant
of lauds over bestowed upon any Terri
tory by that body, was perpetrated, are
wicked enough to assert that when oh
edife—owing? of course, to his enthusi
asm for the measure, — he forgot to swear
the truth !
At the time the Democracy Were cast
ing about them, list Rill, for suitable
persons to - represent their interests in
the Legislature—men pledged against
the fraud perpetrated upon the freemen
of Minnesota—*Mr. Olmsted kept up htr
fire on the Charter passed oh the last
night of the previous Session with such
indecent haste, as well as upon all the
fraudulent means that bad been resort
ed to at Washington, to swindle the
Territory. Knowing the potency of
truth, and conscious that the able arti
cles that emanated from his pen were
true in every particular,> Mr; Baker
hastened from Washington, as is sup
posed, under the order of Mr. Rice,
to first coax, and if that failed, then to
attempt tocompelhim to cease his hos
tility to, pud; support the fraud! Little
did they know the man with whom they
had to do; and when Mr. Baker failed
to divert Mr. Olmsted from what he be
lieved his duty, like a tuagnanimous man
he told him of his kindness in advancing
the money for the press—of his jour
ney ings from Superior, Wis., —of the
embryo city he had there—of the ex
pense he had incurred in going to and
returning from Washington—and when,
as a last effort, believing him as sordid
as himself,he told him he could make him
self independent if he would only sup
port the Railroad interest, that gentle
man became disgusted at Mr. Baker’s
baseness, and after administering him
a fitting rebuke, tendered him back the
establishment, unwilling longer to have
further intercourse with him. Mr. Ba
ker took it, notwithstanding he knew
Mr. Olmsted had made all his arrange
ments for carrying it on during the en
suing year—he took it that he might
place it in the hands of one willing to
“Bend the pregnant hinges of the knee
That thrift might follow fawkino,” ■
Vnd also to get it out of the possession
of an honorable man, Mr. Baker having
proved he had no affinity with such, %nd
one who was unwilling to sell himself to
advance the interests of as mercenary
and corrupt a clique as ever went uii
whipped of justice!
As soon aa I learned of Mr. Baker’s
interview with Mr. Olmsted, and the in
sulting propositions he had made him,
and knowing that gentleman’s attach
ment to the Editorial profession, I urg
ed him to make the office over to me
until Mr. Baker had received all the
money he had advanced for it, (as it
was our intention to have formed a co
partnership in a short time,) but he de
clined, saying he would sooner lose all
he had in the world, than to appear
guilty of a wrong act, even to D. A. J.
These, and these only, are the rea
sons that induced Mr. Olmsted to give
up, the Minnesota Democrat, and I
pledge myself to prove all that I allege,
if denied by those interested. Being
a journeyman in Mr. Olmsted’s office at
the iime, I know whal tsay.
