reachON westward to the Otter Tail Riv
er.
Southward from the Crow Wing,
crossing the valleys of the Sauk, Crow,
:»nd Minnesota, stretches another exten
sive forest, known as the Big Woods.
Ft* eastern border fringes the Mississippi
fur nearly one hundred miles, and its
southwestern corner extends to the val
ley ot the Klue Earth. This timbered
section embraces :ni area of about 5000
square miles, one-fifth of which is south
of the Minnesota Ither. It abounds
in lakes, and sonic portions of it are
broken by open prairie* covcreJ with a
luxuriant growth of grass. The
principal varieties of timber arc oak,
maple, ash, elm, basswood, ami hick
ory.
Nearly all the streams in Southern
Minnesota aie fianged with narrow
woodlands, and co«e ot the valleys east
of the Mississippi-ere heavily timbered.
The upper valleys of the Mississippi
and Minnesota -contain no timber ex
cept upon the borders of the streams
and lakes. The oak openings furnish
the chief supply of wood for the prairie
districts.
The prairies and forests abound in a
great variety of wild animals, among
which are deer, bears, wolves, foxes,
wild-cats, raccoons, and rabbits. Otter
mink, beaver, and muskrat, are the
principal aquatic animals that frequent
the water courses. Buffaloes occasion
ally visit the western frontier Pigeons
grouse, and partridges, are among the
feathered game whilst multitudes of
smaller birds, of sweet song and gay
plumage, add their thousand charm*
to the summer landscape of Minnesota.
ADVERTISING.—To properly appre
ciate the value of advertising over other
methods of making one's business known
to the community, we have only to in
stance the many large fortunes that
havs been derived from a systematic
course of advertising. Benjamin Bran
dreth, who is now worth half a million
of dollars, attributes this success to ad
vertising, which began with small no
tices in the press. Doctor Townsend,
and many others, are living examples.
Shortly after the war began, Mr. Bar
nuin concluded that his expenses must
be curtailed, and accordingly gave or
ders to one of his agents that his ad
vertisements must be cut down one
ludf. This was accordingly done. A
few weeks later, the "great showman"
discovered that his daily receipts were
growing "smal'er by degrees and beau
tifully less." He doubled his attrac
tions, but still the receipts were not in
creased. The matter became serious,
and troubled Mr. Barnum so much that
it disturbed his slumbers. He gave
orders to double the size of his adver
tisements It was done, and the re
sult, as related by Barnum himself, was
an increase of one hundred and fifty
dollars a week in his receipts the first
week, and two hundred and fifty dollars
per week subsequently. Since then he
has never attempted to economize by
reducing the amount paid for his ad
vertisements.— Chicago Gazette,
NEW MUSIC—"Did you mean what
you said is a lively, coquettish little
song, sweet, though simple. "Oh, send
me one flower from his grave," a moth
er's wail for her son fallen in battle, is
one of the many touching ballads
which have thrilled and melted the
hearts of our American people during
the last four years of civil conflict.—
"The Lord's Prayer," a very fine quar
tette, would be most suitable for a
church voluntary. "Lorette Schot

1861, Mrs. J*ff. Davis was promised an

LETTER FROM MRS. SWISSHELM.
WASHISUTOX, April 14.
EDITOR DEMOCRAT.—To-day the
old flag is once more raised on Fort
Sumpter by order of the President
and, by the man who, four years ago,
was obliged to pull it down at the de
mand of rebels—to-day the Secretary
of War announced that drafting is stop
ped in the loyal States—to-day we vir
tually have peace after our terrible four
years of such a war as the world has
never seen—to-day the Commander-in
Chief ot the rebel hordes, who raised
their ntatricidtl hands to destroy iheir
mother country, wait?, quieUy, in the
metropolis of that country to take pas
sage for any part of the world he may
choose as his future residence and on
this favored day the sun shines glori
ously, after along season of clouds and
rain.
On this day of da\s—the same which
is observed by so large a part of the
Christian world as the anniversary ot
that death on Calvary which brings re
demption to a lost world—my most
prominent thought is the superiority
of the nation and Goverment founded
by those Christian philosophers, male
and female, who left luxurious or com
fortable homes, for conscience sake, and
came, in that old Mayflower and with
Penn, to found states where they might
worship God, over the reckless adven
turers who came to seek gold in the old
Dominion, and' bought with a few
pounds of tobacco, the wives scraped
up in the purlieus of European cities
and sent over to them, as articles of
merchandise. It any oue ever doubt
ed that God, visits the iniquities ot the
fathers upon the children unto the
third and fourth generation and shows
mercy unto thousands of them that love
Him, let him look at this piece of his
tory where the sins of the fathers,
pride, extravagance, idleness, drunken
ness, debauchery and all manner of
unbridled passions, became the inheri
tance of the children, and far more than
counterbalanced all the physical advan
tages of the highly favored land they
were permitted to inhabit, and which
converted it almost into a distant waste,
while the ignorant people sat on the
bubble of the«r own false pride obsti
nately blind to the superiority of those
who, inheriting the virtues of their
self-denying ancestors, had made the
desert hills of New England to blossom
as the rose.
17TH.—I had written thus far when
compelled to stop, before describing
the rejoicings of the evening—of the
week previous, and, alas! what a close
was reserved tor that bright day! Ere
midnight every city and town in the
land was startled by news of the fearful
crimes perpetrated in our midst. Of
these crimes and every incident con
nected with them, the telegraph has
informed your readers long before this
can reach them, but in no other part
of the country perhaps, is it so felt as
hero. The large proportion of rebel
sympathizers believed to be implicated
iu (he conspiracy of which Booth was
but the tool, gives to all a feeling of
distrust, horror and dreai1 which cannot
be rcalizod elsewhere. It is sickening
to pass'the White House and adjacent
Depaitmcnts so recently nil gorgeous
with flags and all manner of festive de
vices blazing with many colored lights,
and reverberating with triumphant mu
sic, and witness the change to the
sable emblems of woe. It is sadder
than these, outside changes in other
cities, for just behind that draped wall
lies the mangled body of our sainted,
martyred President, and this visible
presence adds greatly to the sorrow and
gloom.
Anthony asked the Romans to look
at Caesar's wounds, the "dumb mouths"
that should condemn his murderer.!,
and the sight of that broken chamber
of thought late so filled with kindly
purposes towards his murderers, awa
kens a feeling which no word-painting
car. do. Then the presence ot the
thousands ot Freed-pcople who regard
ed Abraham Lincoln as their Moses,
adds to the impressiveness of the scene.
With tears and lamentations they lean
their faces against the iron fence around
the Presidential Mansion, and groan
with a feeling akin to -despair lest now,
that their friend is gone, they shall be
returned to their old masters. Old men
and women lament, and pray, and ask
in such a hopeless way what their fate
is to be— while youug men clench their
hands and exclaim,
"If the North would just leave to
finish this war!" "They have done
enough, just let them leave the rebels
to us!" and other expressions of like
import which shows the temper of the
men who have a Fort Pillow to avenge.
One poor black woman stood out on the
street quite near our house lamenting
that her "good President" should be
murdered in his own city, after being
down tj Richmond where all the dan
ger was supposed to be, and weeping
bitterly she stamped her feet and ex
claimed
"Sly good President! My good Pres
ident! I would rather have died my
self! I would rather have given the
babe from my bosom Oh, Jesus! Oh,
Jesus!"
The mourning for President Lincoln
is no mockery of WJC, but the impas
sioned outburst of hearliVIt grief and
it is touching to see, on every little ne
gro hut in the suburbs, some respectful
testimonial of sorrow. Many deprived
themselves of a menl to get a yard or
two of black to hang above their poor
door or window. Was ever mortal so
wept b\ the poor
But these particulars you will learn
from other sources. What I would
say is, that joining in the general sor
row as I do, I do not look upon this
death as a National calamity any more
than I do that of John Brown, Know
ing the South as I have long done af
ter studying their institutions* and re
siding amongst them, I have never
ceased to fear the destruction of our
Government through the leniency and
magnanimity ot President Lincoln.—
Honest, upright, single-minded and
living in a community where crime is
the exception, he was utterly unable to
realize the total depravity and vindic
tive barbarism of slaveholders as a class,
and I have always feared that his long
suffering with these irreclaimable
sinners would prolong the war until
the patience at the North would be ex
hausted and a disgraceful peace be
made. I could not understand why
God did not give us a leader who un
derstood the nature of Secession and
would deal with it accordingly. But I
see it all now.
The world at large—the masses of
the Northern people—had no more
just idea than had Mr. Lincoln of the
animus of this most fiendish Rebellion,
and he was the instrument ehosen to
show to all the experiment of heaping
coals of fire on the head of that enemy.
He was the one to test generosity, mag
nanimity, Christian charity and all that
class of virtues to the utmost limit, and
we have the result. As Christ was
murdered by those He came to save, so
has President Lincoln been sacrificed
by the wretches he would have shielded
from the just punishment of their
crimes.
What other event could have so open
ed the eyes of the world to the true
cbaiacter of the Southern people Who
now will stand between them and the
reward of their two centuries' of crimes
against our common humanity, the
thought of which makes the blood cur
dle in one's veins The leaders of re
bellion themselves have placed in the
Presidential chair a man who stands
pledged to "arrest them, try them, con
vict them and hang them and who
will not bid him God-speed in this good
work Should he fuil to carry out his
plan, tie) will assassinate him, and
some one else will be called to fulfill
the Lord's purpuse' of visiting, upon
these people, the accumulated sins of
many generations of evil-doers. Na
tions have no hereafter, and National
sins must meet their punishment in this
life. That they and we, for our com
plicity in their sins, have only begun to
drink that cifp of retribution which we
must drain to the dregs, is the old con
viction forced back upon me after
short season of hope that repentance
had brought remission of sins.

NEGOTIATIONS.
The Term* Sherman And Johnston
Agreed Upon—The Moat Ridiculous
Proposition of the War—The Proposed
Terms Disapproved.
WASHINGTON, April 24.
Reports have been.in circulation fot
some time of the correspondence be
tween Johnston and Sherman, the mem
orandum or basis of what was agreed
upon by these two Generals, and the
results are as fellows
"Metuorund jm or basis ot agreement
made this 18th day of April, 1865,
near Durham's Station, in the State of
North Carolina, by and between Gen
eral J. E. Johnston, commanding the
Confederate army and Major General
W. T. Sherman commanding the army
of the United States in North Caroli
na, both present.
"1st. The .contending armies now.in
the field to maintain their statu quo un
til potice is given by the Commanding
General of either one to his opponent,
reasonable time being granted, say 48
hours.
"2d. The Confederate army now in
existence to he disbanded, and con
ducted to their several State capitals,
there to deposit their arms and public
property in the State arsenal, and each
officer and man to execute or file an
agreement to cease all acts of war and
abide by the action of both State and
Federal authorities, and the number of
arms and munitions of war to be re
ported to the Chief of Ordnance at
Washington city, and subject to fur
ther action of the Congress of the Uni
ted States, and in the meantime to be
used solely to maintain peace and or
der within the borders of the States,
respectively.
"3d. The recognition by the xccu
five of the .United States of the several
State Government!*, on, their officers
and legislatures, taking the oath pre
scribed by the Constitution of the Uni
ted States, and where conflicting State
governments have resulted from this
war the legitimacy of all shall be sub
mitted to the Supreme Court of the
United Statss.
"4th. The re-cstablLhment of all
federal courts in the several States with
power, as defined by the Constitution,
and laws of Congress.
"5th. The people and inhabitants of
all States to be guaranteed so far as the
Executive can do so, iu their political
rights and franchises as well as their
rights of persons, and property as de
fined by the Constitution of the United
States, and the States respectively.,
"0th The executive authority of the
Government of the United States not
to disturb any of the people by reason
of the late war so long as tbey remain
in peace and quiet, and abstain from
acts of armed hostility and obey the
laws in existence at any place of their
residence.
7th. In general terms, were the war
to cease, a general amnesty so far as
the Executive of the United States can
command, on the condition of the dis
bandment of the confederate armies and
the resumption of peaceful pursuits by
officers and men as hitherto comprising
said armies.
Not being fully empowered by our
respective principals to fulfill these
terms, we individually and officially
pledge ourselves to promptly obtain the
necessary authority, and to carry out
.the above programme.
[Signed] W. T. SHERMAN,
Maj. Gen. Comd'g Army of U. S.
J. E. JOHNSTON,
Gen. Comd'g C. S. Army'in N. C.
This proceeding of Gen. Sherman
was unapproved for the following
among other reasons:
"1st. It was an exercise of authority
not vested in Gen. Sherman, and it
aso shows that both he and Johnston
knew that he (Gen. Sherman) had not
authority to enter into any such ar
rangement.
"2d. It was a practical acknowledge
ment of the rebel government.
"3d. It undertook to re-establish
rebel State governments that had been
overthrown, at the sacrifice of many
thousand loyal lives, and an immense
treasure. It placed arms and muni
tions of War, in the bauds of the rebels
at their respective capitals, which
rrrrsterrssssisssjB
a^H^WMB^iijm
might be of use, as soon as the armies
of the United States were disbanded
and used to conquer and subdue the
loyal States.
"4th, By the restoration of rebel au
thorities in the iespective States, they
could re-estublihh slavery,
"5th. It might furnish a ground of
responsibility by the federal Govern
ment to pay the rebel debt, and cer
tainly subject loyal citizens of the rebel
States to the penalty consummated by
the rebels in the name of the State*"
"6th. It puts in dispute the existence
of the State of Western Virginia, which
has been recognized by every depart
ment of the United States Govern
ment."
1 "7th. It practically abolished confis
cation laws, and relieves rebels of every
degree, who had slaughtered our peo
ple, from all pains and penalties for
their crimes,"
"8th. It gives terms that had been
deliberately, repeatedly and solemnly
rejected by President Lincoln, and bet
ter terms than they had ever asked
even in their most prosperous condi
tion."
"9th. It formed no basis of true,
lasting peace, but relieved the rebels
from the pressure of our victories, and
left them in a condition to renew their
efforts to overthrow the United States
Government, and subdue the loyal
States whenever their strength was re
cruited and opportunity offered."

war a failure. Do the Democracy ad
