St. Cloud is the point at which the Red Riv
er trams cross the Mississippi on their way to
8t. Paul, which proves it to be the natural
•unction of land travel between these two great
arteries of trade. It is at the present head of
Iteara navigation on the Mississippi. Boats
run regularly, during the Spring and early
Summer months, from St Anthony to this
The map gives its position correctly with
reference to all the moat 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 thehave
river, and at different points of the compass
are eight lakes varying in size from 1 mile to
6 miles in circumference, all, save one, beau
tifl, exceedingly, three ot them at least, deep
enough to float a man-of-war. Wooded banks,
clean pebbly shores plentifully mixed with
cornelian and waters abundantly supplied
When Gov. Stevens made his survey of a
northern railroad route to the Pacific in '53,
he camped "on the western side of the Mis
sissippi below Sauk Rapids." The place was
nameless—the present site of St. Cloud but it
is here his route leaves 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 large Hotel and eight ot er 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.—

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
so perfect and the air so pure that breatiaug
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

There areimmense tracts of pine lying above,
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 and oxen^who are to be supplied
with provisions, clothing and feed. The soil is
waiting for an opportunity to produce unlimi

In some of the river towns back, places that
will be pleasant villages, lots can be had gratis
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 large 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 ef schools.
Seventy thousand acres are appropriated to
a State University. A fine building has already
been erected for the use of that institution. It
a situated a St. Anthony* built of stone on an
eminence commanding a view of the falls, and
no Stat© in the Union has a better foundation
for a good system of popular education. No
other prairie 5tate ia BO well timbered as Min
nesota and no State more abundantly supplied
withf clear water. In the country surrounding
St. Cloud and as far Northand West as we have
any reliable account, settlers find no difficults
in locating land on a running stream or trany
|*rtmt 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 littie Opportunity
for speculators, and settlers have-assurance of
neighbors anil that rapid increase in the value
of theirlands and in social advantages which
arise from the system of land in limited quan
tities to actual settlers.
The country around S. 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 1827 but had 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 country was
ceded to the United States by a treaty began
with Commissioner Manypeny and conclnded
at Washington in Feb. 1865. and ratified by the
Senate March 3d of the same ye«r. In May
following they removed to their reservation on
the Blue Earth river and only since that time
has Stearns County claimed kindred with civil
izqglon..: The first house within the corporated
limits of St. Cloud was built by James Kitch
ens for General Lowry. James Kitchens being
the first white man who slept in a house here,
to entitled to the distinction ofbeing the "old-
eit iunabitant." The site of Lower St. Cloud
was takeu up as a claim by Martin' Wolly, a
Norwegian, who sold his right to George F.
Brott, who surveyed and platted it in the spring
ef'65. 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 jjave
the town the name of St. Cloud by this? name
it was incorporated in the winter of '56 *6«.—
The Land Office was removed in April '58 from
Sauk Rapids to the Upper town. The post office
is in Middle town, which is inhabited by in-And
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 ot
being the first audible inSherburneand lieuton
counties which corner on the opposite side of
the i-iver. There too is a school kept by a com
pany of Benedictine N us where music,
mg, needlework and German are well taught
by ladies ef polished manners and uuusuul
Lower town has two protestant churches, in

house, and a handsome Library dedicated by
Hon. Edward Everett. The eugines of an ex
cellent saw mill and plaining mill, satdi facto

our office. We have from five to six steamboat
arrivals here weekly and the smallest propor

In the fall of '56 Grasshoppers came tn a
cloud and settled down in this and adjoining
counties, destroying the greater portion of the
crops. They deposited their larva) and died.
Karly 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 left 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
generalty of the opinion that there was not,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 beard 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
minds of the people are set on rest as the ques
tion of whether they left lavas, 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.
This town is beautifully located in one of
the finest Agricultural regions in,the North
