arid that was the old store used for the
Indian trade by Col. Douseman and
Mr. Rolette, father of Mr, Kolette now
of Pembina. Just before this it be
came known to the Government at
Washingt n that the country now known
as Minnesota was rich in pine
and was already attratcing the attention
of many on the lower Mississippi, espe
cially at St. Louis, wheie pine lumber
demanded a most' extravagant price,
(from 's4o to SBO per thousand,) and
measures were taken to open the coun
try to tire hardy lumbermen. To carry
out this object Geo. Dodge, then Gov j
of Wisconsin, was delegated to treat!
with tiio Chippewa Indians for their in- j
lere.-t in that pomn of 'Wisconsin i

Towns and cities have been built upj
ts by magic. Many parts of the Territo-!
ry are densely populated, presenting the !
appearance of a country of a century's
growth,instead of one of a growth of one
tenth that time. In some of its towns
wiil be seen improvements vieing in per
manency and splendor with those of old
and 'wealthy ones, which, the beau
tifully open country, and splendid roads
to he found in almost every section,
gives one an idea of being in a land
which has been sealed for many years.
This is what gives Minnesota one of its
main attat p'ions ; and gives to the stran
ger an idea that he is not in a new
country. There fa not, probably, a
ijuuntry under the sun, possessing sb<
inany attractions as this Territory does.

Mr. I?raulkv, Lsq., has withdrawn
as associate Lditor of the Jllonticcllo
Timis. No reasons for the withdrawal
are assigned. Mr. Bradley is a man of
| more than ordinary talent, and it is to
jbo regretted that any cii cum-tances
I should make it necessary that he should
become disconnected with the Times,
| alihoug b the Rev. Mr. Creighton, the
now sole editor, seems equal to the task
of preserving the credit of the paper .
Mr. Bradley distinguished himself as n
member of the Territorial Legislature
of last year as an able, £est and ef
ficient member, and dr<s%jfcr to hjinself
and to those who sent' him thepo. He
was ever fouqd on the right side, doing
good service, and deserves the thbnks
and gratitude of many who had to suf

the power, in his own hands. Success
to him in whatever sphere he may be
called upon to act.

DROWNED.
A week ago last Monday, David Ad
ams, while attempting to cross the Mis
sHsippi at Two Rhers, a mile or so
above Platte River in company with lus
son was U|>set in a bark canoe and
drowned • After the canoe upset, his
.son, who had hold of if, seeing his father
''struggling in the water, started to his
iire'ipf, but his father told him to hold on
;|to it and fake care of himself. He did
fso and after floating down the current
ik-ome distance it landed on an island
land the sou was saved. Mr. Adams was
: a man about fifty-five years of age, a
| Steady, upright man and very much re
! spected, we learn, by all of his aequaint
■ ances. He emigrated to this country
! from Maine about one year ago. We
| understand 'hdt he was well acquainted
i with boating, but probably not with bark
icanoes. We would advise all unac
j quainted with those kind of canoes to he
[cautious of them. It needs experience
[to use them with safety.

CONTES FED CL* AIM CASE. |
A Contested claim case was brought j
bcforo the Officers of |t»c Land Office j
cm last, which seems to ex- j
cite <fuip fe degree of interest. The |
re C. B. Johnson and G. W. j
Witson. We learn Johnson had been
ejected from the claim in question by
the QJnim Association of Steam county,
arid Wilson, the other claimant, now has
possession of it. The defence set op
by the counsel for Wilson was that
Johnson came into possession of the
claim fraudulently, or by ejecting anoth
er, Tim man who it was alleged had !
Wert thriven off by Johnson, was present
,»t the ,trial on Saturday, and it was
j contended by the council for Johnson
p4|flt he was the man to contest the claim
pdith Johnson if any one. At this state
! ol the trial the officer? adjourned over
to Monday, when the trial opened again,
ar:d Mr,- Ernholte, who was the man
it was said Johnson had dispossessed of
the claim, came forward as a contest
ant ic the suit. To this the counsel for
Johnson objected, on the ground that
the necessary notice of trial had not
been given under this new phaze of the
matter. Alter some hard fighting by
the counsel on both .sides, in which much
ingenuity was shown, the objection was
sustained by the * ffice s CaytU'hers .*.r d
Hayes, and the 10;h of next month,
(July,) appointed for a hearing of slu:
J new suit. The counsel for Wilson
i were Andrew Sc Wait, and those for

PERSONAL
Wc regret to sec the Messrs. Rus

even for a short season. Both made
claims in that settlement, the titles to
which have been acquired by them, and
die eldest, \\ ellirgton, has expended
about two thousand dollars in improving
his land. In that vicinity the grasshop
pers were worse than in any other local
ity and were so destructive upon his
crops, that he concluded to leave until
next season. He considers the present
only a temporary calamity, end goes only
for the present season, and will return ;n
the Spring. He thinks some of biing

provisions for the sale of which he wii
establish himself here. Whether io

EXPRESS COMPANY
By a reflerence to oar advertising
columns, it. will be seen that the Ex
Company have extended their line as
far as Sauk Rapids, and appointed O B.
Day agent. This offers great facilities
to our citizens for procuring or sending
packages, or t: ansacting any business
which it may be necessary to transact
at St. Paul, St Anthony, or at any of the
intermediate paints between St. Paul
and tliis place. Groat inconvenience
and delay has been experienced by our
citizens, for the want of some one who
could he depended upon, to procure ar
ticles from below to order, and t.he only
safe way to get such articles as admit
ted of n > delay in their procurement,
was to go himself, though it might be
iver so small in amount. The Express
obviates this difficulty, ns a messenger
w ii run on the North Star, whose busin
ess it will bo to give such matters his
personal attention.
.At a Meeting of the citizens of
Sauk Rapids, convened at Dae s Hotel
on Saturday evening last it was con
cluded to be too late for a regular old
fashioned celebration on the 4th, but
resolved to have a ride on that day to
Long Lake, some ten miles or so from
hero, and on their return to have a din
ner at Day’s Hotel, after which the
yotfttg folks will do as they please. If
they should be permitted to do so, we
.will venture to suggest that they should
begin early, that they may not intrude
js>on the Sabbath, with their amuse
ments. We hope that there will he a
general attendance. It will be a fit
time for the people of our town to be
come acquainted with one another.—

EXTRAORDt#ARY PHENOMENON—LOSS
OF LIFE—MYSTERIOUS MOVEMENT OF
AN ATMOSPHERIC BODY.
On Saturday afternoon very many of
our cit izens noted the appearance of a
yery remarkable formation of nebulous
or cloudy substance, extending from the
heavens nearly to the earth, where it
seemed to diminish almost to a point,
but expanded gradu&Hy as it ascended,
until the peculiar form was lost in the
clouded sky. Tins remmkable and tun
nel-like column of cloudy mist, passed
over the city at about four o’clock, and
was remarked not only l>y its peculiar
appearance, but by a rushing, buzzing
noise, as it swept off in the direction ot
Deerfield. It was watched for some
moments, and people generally believed
it to be a water spout, as its conical
f»;in corresponded with all ideas of such
phenomenon. It soon passed from sight
and was made the subject of sportive
conversation for the hour, without the
least just conception oi‘ what the body
consisted, or of its destructive power.—
Its effects, however, have been most
: wonderful, and may justly altinct the
i attention and scrutiny of the scientific,
j world.
; The conical muss first settled to tin

I settled to the earth, and m an ir-Unn
; scattered a barn to pieces, and ton.- uj
i several < rets on the opposite side of tin
| road; next the well-house of M s. Hieh
j itrdsen, which was standing directly i;
; a south-easterly direction frum when
it first touched the earth, was tb ro d
| ished, and quite a number of t;< es u
; her orchard, and fe..ce was destr. » d
I the path of desti uction then tended t
[ the south-east, as marked by iium< r t
I I rees and riddled fences, until it a
! preached the Baptist parsonag-"-:: -
occupied by Mr. John V\ arncr.
: Mr. V\ arren informs us that he wa
| engaged in his garden at about fbe
i o'clock and raw the approach of th
(cloudy object, as it threw up the tree
jAs its course pointed low ;rd his ou
thouse, in ran to the dwelling, caugh
f two of his older children and celled l
J his wife to save the other three and Iu i

cellar is now lying u neon set s iV.m ( :
wounds which he received in the on
•non wreck. His recovery i vet
; doubtful: an dde’ghl escaped v.hhm
| any injury. The dwelling was two .-h
| ries, eighteen by twenly feet, and stif
jstantially hunt. In rear of it was
barn, distant about live rods, iivtim
five by thirty-two feet, which was lite:
ally shivered into splinters.
| Next in the southeasterly line of i
j course it uprooted several large tree
I scattered the fences, crossed the io<:
land demolished a largo barn, belongiii
jto Mr. John M . Budlong. Ti » buildir
was of tecent and very sub-iautial buib
and 35 liy 50 fe*‘t upon it? base, yet *1
destructive element tore it to piece
scattering large timbers about the tic
at a distance of from five to fifteen rod
distributing portions of the roof in uu
ous directions, and actually taking \.
an iron cylinder threshing machim
weighing perhaps four hundred pound
sud depositing it at least eighty fe
from the baru. \ cow belonging to M
Budlong, standing near the barn wi
killed yvitlmut any apparent on twin
wound. About eighth rods farther on
a direct line, a smaller tarn belongin
to the same gentleman was dornolishet
and what is very singular in (his i>
stance, but little of the material of wiiic
it was constructed is to be found an
where. A few shivered boards and tin
bers alone attest to its fo mcr exislenci
The dwelling of Mr, Budlong had
narrow escape. A shingle or two tot
from one corner of the roof indicate ho
narrowly it escaped destruction.
Beyond the premises of Mr. Budlong
for about a mile, prostrate trees an
fences evidence the track of the destruc
ive messenger It however, seemed t
have lelcased its hold upon the earf
soon after leaving the farm c t Mr. But
long, for it was distinctly seen to its
fiom the surface and dissolve its conicf
shape into a general cloudy form. Th
phenomenon was followed by violent rai
ind wind. bpwo men at work in a fiel
.aw the strange aparition approach an
l<) their heels, barely escaping it
have 'he well
:rack as it passed on. It seemed to
raise from the earth in four or five min
utes from the time it whig first seen, and
the evidences before us of destruction,
lie in a district not over live or six miles
in extent, in a due southeasterly direc
tion from where its first touch was felt,
and in a track about fifteen rods in width.
Whatever of material substance present
ed itselt in its track was swept a wav,,
and the ruin presented is certainly fear
ful to behold.
Had the mysterious body settled upon
this city, and passed d<>wn Genessee
street, there would not at this hour re
main a vestige of its present formation.
Of what the destructive power was com
posed, we are not prepared to affirm,
hut of its force we can truthfully attest.
Huge frees were tossed from their deep
rooted resting places as readily as a gar
dener would pull a radish from the sandy
eaith; fences and ova t, posts were scat
tered in all directions as if they w ere
chips, and buildings ale rued no ntorete
sistance than a ciup! red io a fort) horse
power engine. The moving mass (Tie
in is represented b) all who saw it to
have been a vapory sub-Trice: it was
| not accompanied bv any wind or sioiug
i but seemed an independent agency trav
eling on its own account at a speed of
perhaps a mile a ir/nuto. In its motion
J there was a constant revolution, and
| when it was rising, t i. whirling peculi
arity became more (m rilic and violent.
| The peculiar buz//sound which was
j noticed in its passage by our citizens,
j was al-o remarked i:y the p* ■ nie along
its course in Deerfield Schuyler.
