St. Cloud is the point at which the Red Riv
er trains cross tho Mississippi on their way to
St. Paul, which proves it to he the natural
•unction of land travel between these two great
arteries of trade. It is at the present head of
steam navigation on the Mississippi. Boats
run regularly, during tho Spring and early
Summer months, from St Anthony to this
The map gives its position correctly with
reference to all the most important points in
the Territory, but the peculiar beauty of its
location, and fertility of the surrounding coun
try cannot be transcribed. Within fifteen
mile of St. Cloud, on opposite sides of tht
river, and at different points of the compass
are eight lakes varying in sise from 1 mile to
6 miles in circumference, all, save one, beau
tifl, exceedingly, three ol them at .least, deep
enough to float a man-of-war. Woodedbanks,
clean pebbly shores plentifully mixed with
cornelian and waters abundantly supplied
WheQn »v. Stevens made his survey of a
northern railroad voute to the Faoific in 63,
he camped "on the western side of the Mis
sissippi below Sauk Rapids." Thei place was
nameless-the present site of St. Cloud but it
is here his route loaves the river. In the sum
mer of '55 a claim cabin was built on the spot
where we now write, a good saw mill, the
frame of a largo Hotel and eight other dwell
ings were put up that summer. This last fall
there were three hundred and thirty-two votes
polled in the precinct. Not the votes of Indi
ans or Half Breeds, for there are none here.—
A majority of the inhabitants of the country
are hardy Germans, with sturdy wives aud
children cultivating the soil and working at
The subsoil is sandy and although the soil is
from one to three feet deep, a rich black loam
supporting a rank vegetation, the drainage is
eo perfect and the air so pure that breathing
is a perpetual pleasure. As yet, our Physi
cians have discovered no diseases peculiar to
the climate, no indeg-nious complaint except
the "Minnesota Appetite" which requires one
fourth more treatment than a modest Pennsyl
vania or Ohio attack of a corresponding dis-
Any body who wants to drink whiskey in
peace had better not come here, for the treaty
by which the land was acquiredfrom the Sioux
forbids its introduction and the Legislature
has passed a law enforcing that provision but

who have children to educate, willfindfew

training, healthy development of muscle, and

There areimmense tracts of pine lyingabove,
from which the mills at St. Paul, St. Anthouy,
and the Minnesota Valley are supplied. These
employ a large and ever-increasing force of
men, horses snd oxen, who are to be supplied
with provisions, clothing and feed. Thesoil is
waiting for an opportunity to produce unlimi
ted quantities of food, without troubling the
farmer crushing clods while tho Mississippi
from St. Paul to Little Falls can afford to turn
mill at almost any point and has water pow
er enough to do the manufacturing for a Con
Our natural meadows produce a grass from
four to six feet high, and the beefkilled off our
prairies is quite equal to any stall fed wc I ave
ever eaten Our venison is fine at ten cents
per pound, rabbits, prairie hens, partridges,
ducks, &c, plenty. Thousands of bushels of
auorns for the hogs that are not here to eat
them. Fuel for the labor of cutting and haul
ing off the ground and there is no likelihood
of the supply running out soon as the "Bigbeautiful
Woods" extend from this place some twenty
miles or more, down this Bide of the river and
from eight to twelve miles back Our prairies
are a'l dotted with strips of wood land, "Oak
Openings which just look like old orchards,
dense thickets of plum trees bearing delicious
fruit, grape vines, doing likewise, thousands of
acres of hazel bushes and strawberry vincs,cn
gaged in the same business while some hun
dred acres are in the cranberry trade and turn
out an article, which for quantity and quailty
connot be excelled. The blackberries red rasp
berries aud hops tack up their shingles in the
woods and seldom dissappoint the most san
guine expectations of their customers. There
is still land ten or fifteen miles back which set
tiers can get, at government price, hy building
cabin and living on it until it comes into
market. Actual settlers can buy lots here at
from one to fife hundred dollars, and specula
tors can have the same lots at from five to fif-of
In some of the river towns back, places that
will be pleasant villages, lots can be hadgratis
by those who will build and,live on them.—
This, in places where a house can be built for
fifty dollars, that would be a palace compared
to the dens rented in largo cities for 4 and 5
dollars per month, while the lot, with only the
aid of a grubbing hoe and a few days labor,
would bring vegetables to feed a family, and
every township has 600 acres appropriated to
the support of schools.
Seventy thousand acres are appropriated to
a State University. A fine buildinghasalready
been erected for the use of that institution. It
situated a St. Anthony, built of stone on an
eminence commanding a view of the falls, and
no State in the Union has a better foundation
for a good system of popular education. No
other prairie State is so well timbered as Min
nesota and no State more abundantly supplied
with clear water. In the country surrounding
St. Cloud and as farNorthand West aswe have
any reliable account, settlers find no difficults
in locating land on a running stream or trany
paront lake with plenty of timber at hand for
building, fencing and fuel, and as the land on
the West side of the Upper Mississippi is only
open to pre-emption, there is iittle opportunity
for speculators, and settlers have assuranee of
neighbors and that rapid increase in the value
of their lands and in social advantages which
arise from the system of land in limited quan
tities to actual settlers.
The country around St. Cloud, west of the
Mississippi was purchased of the Indians in a
treaty made with them by the Hon. Alexander
Ramsey and Luke Lea in 1852 and ratified by
the senate the same"year. The Sioux had
owned the land from 1827buthad not occupied
it, and it was used as a hunting ground by the
Winnebagoes whose land reached within four
miles north of St. Cloud. Their eountry was
ceded to the United States by a treaty began
with Commissioner Manypeny and oonclnded
at Washington in Feb. 1855 and ratified by the
Senate March 3d of the same year. In May
following they removed to their reservation on
the Blue Earth river and only since that time
has Stearns County darned kindred with civil
isation. Thefirsthouse within the corporated
limits ofSt. Cloud was built by James Hitch
ens for General Lowry. James Kitchens being
the first white man who sleptin a house here,
is entitled tothe distinction of being the "old-
eat inhabitant" Thesite of Lower St. Cloud
was taken up as a claim by Martin Wolly, a
Norwegian, who sold his right to* George F.
Brott, who surveyed and plattedit in the spring
of'55. About the same time John L. Wilson
surveyed and platted what is now called middle
town, which adjoins and lies higher up the riv
er, while General Lowry surveyed and platted
upper town, called Lowry's Addition,'the win
ter following. It was Mr. Wilson who gave
the town the name of St. Cloud by this name
it was incorporated in the winter of '55 '66.—
The Land Office was removed in April '58 from
Sauk Rapids tothe Upper town. Thepost office
is in Middle town, which is inhabited by in
dustrious and well to do German Catholics.—
The Catholic chapel is here, and the bell be
longing to it, is the first church going bell in
Stearns County and has also the distinction oi
being the first audible inSherburneand Benton
counties which corner on the opposite side of
the river. There too is a school keptby a com
pany of Benedictine Nuns where music, draw
ing, needlework and German are woll taught
by ladies ef polished manners and unusual
Lower town has two protestant churches, in
process of erection, one quite completed We
have a public school in the Everett School
house, and a handsome Library dedicated by
Hon. Edward Everett. The engines of an ex
cellent saw mill and plaining mill, sash facto
ry and of a goodflouringmill are this mo
ment puffing away within half a dozen rods of
our office. We have from five to six steamboat
arrivals here weekly and the smallest propor
tion of drones we have ever seen in any hive.
In the fall of '56 Grasshoppers came tn
cloud and settled down in this and adjoining
counties, destroying the greater portion of the
crops. They deposited their larvm and died.
Early in the spring of '57 the young brood
came out and made such havoc that serious
fears of famine were entertained by a large
portion of the people but they loft in July,and
so many of the late crops survived, that with
the full crops of particular places, where they
did not appear, there was a large amount of
food. In autumn it became a question wheth
er there was enough for winter consumption
with what the peoplehad the means of purchas
ing from below. The German settlers were
generally of the opinion that there wasnot,and
tke Priests sent commissioners to Dubuque to
ask contributions. When this became known
in Lower St. Cloud Indignation meetings were
held, and strong resolutions passed condemn
ing measure as altogether unnecessary, and
one calculated to do the country great injury
by preventing emigration in the spring. The
Correctness of this view of the case is now pro
ven. The third week of May is here, potatoes
sell at 25cts. per bushel, corn $1,00, wheat
$1,25, oats, 80 cts. and we have heard of no
instance in which any have suffered for want
of food while a very large proportion of the
emigrants who had last year designed emigra
ting to this point have been deterred by this
bugbear cry of famine, and have gone else
where. The time is now past at which the
Grasshoppers appeared last spring, and the
minds of the people are set on rest as the ques
tion of whether they left lava:, last year, be
fore they emigrated. It is evident that they
went to other localities as they came here to
eat, deposit? their eggs and die. There is no
sign that they have left any deposits here, and
as everybody is putting in a crop of some
thing good to eat, we expect next fall to be en
umbered with a surplus of the good things of
his life, and to inundate St. Anthony Minne
apolis and St. Paul, with vegetables and grain
after supplying the Pine regions and the la
borers on the Rail Road.
