Not wishing longer to intrude on your patience, and (hat of your readers, my dear Knapp, I closed my last epistle rather abruptly ; and lest that letter reaches Min nesota, and some of my friends think I have made invidious distinctions between that truly, lovely and advantageously loca ted spot, All Saints, and other localities in Minnesota, I have resolved to jot down my opinion of the various towns in the territory; so that persons desirous of au thentic information in regard.lo this region can have it, by subscribing for your paper. For I have not yet written, nor do I intend to write i word in praise of Minnesota that will not bear the strictest scrutiny. My letters may therefore be believed. First then, is St. Paul, the Capitol of the territory, and whose population is 3000; which nature has lavished her choices! blessings in the richest profusion; and art is now improving these, as fast as possible. The town since I have lived in Minnesota, has more than doubled itself in population; and when the holders of property learn to ask a reasonable price for their lots this place will, like magic, grow into one of the most important commercial points on the Mississippi. Among its most promi nent citizens, I will now only mention Henry M. Rice, Esq., Charles II. Oakes Esq., Dr. Bowp, C. S. Milles, Esq., (for merly of Cleveland,) and R. R. Nelson, Esq., son of Chief Justice Nelson, of New York. To the exertions of Mr. Rjco, mainly, has St. Paul attained her present position. Free-hearted and enterprising, has been the means of raising many whom misfortune had cast down ; and his dis interestedness has reared for him a monu ment ; more enduring llun braBs, in the hearts of the masses. A radical democrat, he is a terror to monopolists, and il is this fact thai has made the Fur Company, wilh its sattellites pursue him with such unholy ferocity. His character haa been assailed his credit attacked, and his honesty call ed in question ; yet has he wiilmtood all; and is now in the zenith of his triumph over mercenary enemies. Messrs. Oakes and Bowp, are hroihers-in-law, the latter the head of the Fur Company, against the former, the voice of defamation and ca- umny, Jure not be raised he is respected by all. Being heavy capitalists and much interested therein, these gemle men have built up what is known as the "lower lown," and llicy have done much to enhance the importance of the capital. They arc whig!, or people's men," Mr. C. H. Milles, is a young lawyer of good qualifi cations, and is desiiued at no distant day lo loom out brilliamly in his profrssion. Last, though by no means the least im portant in my list comes R. It. Nelson, Esq., of whom I fear to speak, for I love him as a broihcr. His very faults in my eyes it laull sue has, seem virtues. Dis interested, honorable and high minded, he scorns the low inlriguings of the sordid, and would prefer retirement, in virtue ; lo doing a dishonorable act to attain eminence. He is now one of the first lawyers of the territory. A democrat, from an in bred sense of correctness of the principles of the parly ; he has now (he regard of all sound democrats of all but the mercenary and time-serving; and when Minnesota shall become a Slate, I predict Mr. Nelson, will be one of her first United States (Senators. So much for St. Paul. Next in importance is St. Anthony, which town is eight miles from St. Paul and contains 1500 inhabitants, and is des tined to be to Minnesota, in conjunction with All Saints what Lowell is to Mass achusetts ; and I am rejoined in be able to inform your readers that the cloud which haa for the past two years, obscured lite prosperity of this place has nt last been removed, 'and ils sun is now glowing forth in all ils Wonted warmlh and beauty. Un til within l few days past, a warrantee Deed could not be given purchasers of property on account of a difficulty be tween one of the proprietors of the lown, Mr. Taylor, and the balance of litem, Mr. T. has al last come to terms sold out his interest and all is now going on charming- The Falls of St. Anthony, the only Falls in the whole length of the Mississippi, are some seven miles above the junction of of the Mississippi and St. Peter's rivers. The Falls are in 44 30' north latitude. An island about 450 yards long divides the Mississippi into two parte at the Falls of St. Anthony, which have a very irregu lar outline, owing to the soft sandstone be ing washed out unequally in places, and the superincumbent strata of limestone I ail ing down in large blocks ) these ire piled op in great quantities on the bed of the ri ver immediately at the foot of the Falls. OHIO, WEDNESDAY, MAY 1852. That part of the river on the north side of the island, is about two hundred and twen ty yards in width. There is a very fine( smooth section of rocks to ihe water, about 90 feet high. I should think the Fall would not average more tharl 60 feet high. The immense slabs which have fallen from the limestone beds at the top, are covered wilh producla, mixed wilh spirifers and eardia. On the south side of the river, the line of the Falls measures about 450 yards to the island. It is a wild rocky, scene, and to ihe geologist, is exceedingly interesting, finding here the uninterrupted continuation, for one thousand miles, of the carbonifer ous limestone, wilh ils characteristic fossils, at the south side of the falls." The inhabitants of Si. Anthony are an industrious, enterprising people, mostly from Maine, their motto onward. If I were allowed to judge, from my short resi dence among them, I should say ihey were extremely hospitable and kind ; caring in finitely more for Ihe true man than for those made by the tailors. All accord to Franklin Steele, Esq., the credit of being the most enterprising citizen of this place. He is to St. Anthony, what H. M. Rice, Esq. is to St. Paul. Mr. S. is naturally a democrat. But being the brother-in-law of our present Representative in Congress, lie has for the nonce doffed his old party and gone the "People's ticket. " I am told, however, he is heartily tired of this; and I think, ere long I shall have the satisfac tion of informing your readers that ho has returned to his first love. Capl. John Rol lins, John II. Gairns, G. W. North, Isaac ATnaler, Esq., together with Jno. G. Len now, Esq., may be reckoned among the prominent men of St. Anthony. Next comes SlrHwater ; which is located some twenty mites from Ft. Paul ; and is quite a lively lillle village of eight hundred inhabitants. Fur its size it has i good business going on there which is yearly increasing. Among its prominent men are Maj. Van Vorhcs, Regester of Land of fice, and formerly of Ohio, Jonathan Mc Kurich, Michael E. Ames, Esq., and Jesse Taylor. This place offers good induce ments lo the mechanic. Mendota, five miles from St. Paul.is the name of a trading port at the junction of the Mississippi and St. Pelers rivers; and will make a point of importance one day. It is on the Military Reserve, and of course, until that is raised will not improve. Here is the residence of Hon. II. M. Sib ley, our Delegate in Congress ; Maj. N. McLean, formerlyjof Oliio,p(who by ihe hye, is a brother of Hon. John McLean, of your State,) Sioux Indian Agenl; and as Ihe Forl-Snelling is located here, litis village in the residence of F. Steele, Esq,; elsewhere mentioned in this epistle; who is Sultler of this Maiion. Although I do not like ihe political position Mr.Sibley now, occupies il being that of neither whig or democrat, bill hermaphroditic, or either lo suit circumslancen yet I believe he has performed his trust, in Congress, as well as any man, that is not a parly man could do. It is to be regretled as he claims lo be "a Jefferson Democrat," that he opposes the drawing of party lines that ho is ihough.perAayH, unintentional ly playing into Ihe hands of the whigs. It is true the Democracy did not use him as ihey should have done in 1819; when they imported Col. A. M. Mitchell, here ; who ever has been a rabid whig; and run him against Sibley for Delegate. Had 1 been here I should(certainly have gone for Mr. S. however much be disliked the course his parly, or a portion of them took in this matter, I think if he is at heart a democrat, he would not be "bluffed" out in that way ; and I think when certain would-be leaders, who have more zeal than sense, treat him with that consider ation he is entitled lo, he will return to ihe fold. In the formation of a party, com poeed of-ihe elements", ours here is from all sections of the country my mono is concilliation to attract and draw to our ranks, rather than by coldness, and ihe exercise of an arbitrary 'disposition, re pel and drive away those who have it in their power to be of much service. Bui, fur fear of wearying your patience- I will hasten to a close. Before I do so however, permit me lo hope that ihe mem be re of Congress from Ohio, will unani mnusly lend their aid to ihe passage of Senator Douglas' Bill for ihe raising of ihe Military Reserve of Forl-Snelling. The bill, as introduced meets the sanction of our entire population, and should pass in thai shape. In my next, t will endeavor to point out the advantages this territory presents to persons wishing to " travel out West." Until ihen farewell.
