On the Wing. ON BOARD THE STEAMER "Mollie Molder." ON THE MINNESOTA RIVER, July 9, 1867. Fbiexd Reed:' This morning I took passage on this little Steamer at Mankato for St. Paul, and while sit ting here enjoying the beautiful scenery and this delightful Minnesota breeze, I suppose you are sweltering in your 'Den." hard at work, driv- the quill that the Tctcgraih may be off "in' time." The thought occurs to me that under such circumstances an '"item," or "something to fill up," might be acceptable. So with the sole idea of helping you out I commence, not knowing when I shall end. I left the Mississip pi at Winona, and having friends near Manka to, I made that my objective point, lying 150 miles directly west. The Railway now extends 90 miles inthatdi-ection, and Burbank's famous line of Stage s penetrate the interior from this point. Tut re being no alternative for me, I pre pared myself for rough usage, and before the remaining COmileswere accomplished I became filly convinced of my nothingness and decided that "a hard road to travel. " We have on board to-day representatives of human nature in a variety of forms. At Maukato we shipped a party of delegates to the democralic State Con vention, which convenes at St. Paul to-morrow. In conversation with one of them I was told that they go down to the convention without the remotest idea of ultimate success ; but they go through with the form, I suppose, as in Ohio, merely to keep up an organization and show their good will. Would that the Republican party might inherit this one redeeming trait-eternal vigilance with a determination to overcome all obstacles. Accessions are being made to the party at each landing, and demonstrations about the' crowded saloon indicate a rich harvest for the bar-keeper. Compressed lips and wry faces speak of another characteristic which I need not n ention. At the opposite end of the cabin from this scene a devoted and appareutlybap- py pair, just from the hymenial altar. They were accompanied on board an hour ago by the anxious father and tearful mother, w ho, at the shrill whistle of the steamer, beat a hasty retreat, leaving the children to go all the way alone down to St. Paul to'see the 'Black Crook' which I believe is on the bill for to-night. He is seated close beside-her, and has already com menced fulfilling his solemn row, to love, cher ish and criteria in the choice of his heart. She having taken him for better or. for worse ac knowledges him as her protector, and. allows her head to gently drop upon his heaving bosom and with upturned eyes aud such a bewitching s:uilc, wonders bow long before they will be in St. Paul. The beautiful riverscencry has no charms for tl.em now, the outside world is a myth, the first glauce of the honey-moon has completely eclipsed their earthly vision to everything but little Cupids and long years of solid bliss. Such is life. . They, too, were duly appointed delegates, not only to St. PauL but to the grett matrimonial conventton, of which fact they will be fully aware, when upon the wane of the honey-moon, they both find themselves elected. Now a word about the country. The Minne sota river takes its rise from Big Stone Lake, on the border of Dakotah Territory. Its course for about 175 miles is south-cast, when it makes a short turn and flows south-west about 150 miles to its confluence with the Miss, at Mendo- ta, six miles above St. Paul. During the greater part of the season it is navigable to the curve mentioned, at which point is situated the city of Mankato. by far the most important in this portion of the Sl ate, and favored by nature with one of the most advantageous positions. The valley of the Minnesota river embraces a very extensive tract of the most fertile land in the "western country, the whole south-western por tion of the State tributary to and virtually in cluded in it. Although settled at a recent date iu ct jif cquct:ce of iu link of rail ways, and on ly partial prevalence of navigation, yet its ex treme fertility of soil has already iuduccd thous ands of scalers to make il their home. There cannot bu a doubt but it will soon be one of the greatest wheat growing centres of the west, from which will be shipped a large proportion of the great staple of Minnesota. The influx of emi grants the present season is almost incredible. The continued advance in improvements will make ptist progress, however great, look dimin utive when compared with the future. Numer ous towiis are springing up iu the great valley, v'eing with each other iu commercial import ance ; but nature has apparently placed the available means of access lo this part of the state iii the hands of Mankato, and she is unques lionably destined to be its commercial centre. Mankato suffered severely from the Indian out break of 1802. Being near the frontier,- this sudden descent upon them almost paruiyzed the business of the emlryo city, and carried finan rial as well as physical dismay to many. This was a serious drawback, and for two or three years the town made little advancement ; but soon the Indian tribes were removed by the Government farther west and t'ao young city rallied aud has since grown with great rapidity. It was at Ibis point, you will rcmemlier, that several hundred hostile Indiaas were confined until ISO'S when 38 of the Sioux being convict ed, were bung at the same instant from one gal lows ; the remainder being allowed to go free. The inhabilantnow haw nothing to fear : that removal of all the tribes to the far west, and the settlements between preventing beyond a pos sibility a recurrence of ' these troubles The spring here has been excessively wet The great full of rain has swelled the streams and rivers to a capacity seldom if ever reached be fore. Scarcely a bridge in this sect ion is left many very fine and costly structures have been swept away, obliging people lo establish terries in their stead. But notwithstanding all the drenching, the wheat crop, though from three to four weeks late,, promises now a bountiful bar rest Corn looks rather Ekkly fust now, but with a favorable July and August it will mature and bring in an average crop. A steamboat ride down the Minnesota in warm day is indeed a luxury. This river has the same peculiarity as most in the west a sud den rise in the spring and a low stage of water in the summer, ecn rendering navigation with the smallest class of steamers impossible. probably makes more curves, in a short space than any other known stream on the globe, of ten necessilating a journey of six miles to ac complish one of loss than two. So strong is the current nd so short is the curves that the boat sometimes completely spans the river, leaving us fora moment in doubt asto which end of the boat will take the advance. The banks are lined in most places with heavy groves of timber, which being covered with thick foliage presents a cool and inviting appearance. The country extending out on either side is interspersed with numerous streams flowing into the Minnesota, affording many landscape views, of .which the State is famous. The most important of these perhaps are the far famed falls of Minne-inne-o-pa or "singing waters, where tire elk play, ' miles from Mankato. They are composed of double fall, the first of about fifteen and the 2d about 60 feet, aud are situated in the midst of dense wood, giving the scenery and surround ings a most romattic and picturesque appearance. No description can do it justice. The Railway prospects for this portion of the State are flattering. The Winona & St. Peter Railway now extends to Owatonna 50 miles east of Mankato, and will strike the railroad either at that point or St. Peter, thus affording an outlet to the Mississippi, and direct commu nication with eastern markets. The Minnesota Valley Railroad from St. Paul up through this great valley is now completed to Belle Plain, some 50 miles, and will soon be extended on by a junction with the Sioux city branch of ths Union Pacific, and develope the entire south western portion of the slate. Truly yours, h. The Demockacy are wonderfully a- fraid that the negro, if he votes, -w ill be elected to office, aud even fear that a dus ky slcin w ill be elevated to the Presiden tial Chair. There is no danger of that, un less he gets vote enough ; aud if he does why should 'nt he ? There are hundreds of thousands of people whom we should hate to see President. Shall "we there fore disfranchise the classes to which they belong? We have a strong aver sion to elevating a copperhead to that position Shal we therefore deny the right of ballot to all Copperheads ? General Clinton B. Fisk at a rceent missionary meeting said, not many years ago in- a southern city, he saw a man publicly flogged, by sentence of the court for the crime of having taught a class six colored children to read the Testi ment. Last year he visited the same city and saw eight hundred colored chil dren gather iu schools, without opposi tion or molestation. They sung "My country rtis of the," while the same cons table who did the whipping stood by his side, and the very mayor of tlie city who orderd the whipping, took off his hat and joined with the children in giving three cheers for the old flag. Something of a change that for one generation to witness. ' Pooe Iuelaxb. The Russian Govern ment, says a Cable dispatch, has called the attention of the Government ot Eng land, France and the United States the existing 6tate of affairs in. Ireland, and expressed the opinion that a joint inquiry into the condition of the island, on the part of the Governments of Rus sia, France and the United States,' conjunction with that of Great Britain, should take place. This would certainly be most astounding news, if it were true. But few people will be able to persuade themselves that it is. ' It cer tainly reads more like a Fenian joke than like a Russian note. Very posibly the Russian Government believes that the wretched condition of Ireland should be investigated, but action upon that belief would be a very different thing. The Journal of Ot. Tttersturg takes the trouble of expressly declaring . that the tainous Russian note on Ireland is sheer fabrication. - The X. Y. Herald considers the note as "startling news. Me. S. S. Cox and othrr permanent Democrats were reported by telegraph a day or two agoas being iu Washington urging upon political friends the poli cy of nominating Gen. Grant, lor the Presidency, no matter what his princi ples may be. To this the Cincinnati In quirer responds : "There are a plenty of soldiers who think that Gen. Grant has already been too highly rewarded for his merits, and who do not believe that all the honors and high positions should be carried by one man. .He now struts about with his three stare and 120,000 a year life po sition, while thousands of men . who did quite as much service are reduced penury and wantf It is a great mistake to sup2ose that the Democratic conserva tive men who were in the army are go ing to run after Gen. Grant, in order pour still more afHucncc into his lap and to clothe him with still higher elevation, lie will get no votes from that quarter. There are hundreds of thousands of peo ple, of poth parties, who think that some of these high military diguitaries who have been lifted from obscurity, by the fortunate events of the war, are put'jng on altogether too many airs, and becom ing too important and inflated. They Jo not think that all the offices are then property for years lo come, and that language is to be poured into their ears but unbounded flattery aud eulogy. The common sense of this people, too, has has been disgusted by the extraordinary ovatious which have been paid to Gener al Grant, aud they have anxiously in quired "upon what hath this our Caesar fed, that he has grown so great?" High as this military despot is in rank, and vast as are his jretensions, we are not afraid to- meet him in a popular canvass and to discuss his merits for the position of Chief Magistrate of this- Republic. Such a bubble can be easily pricked, and the gas it contains let out." , Most of the Democaats hate so- intens ely the cause in which Gt-n. Grant earn ed his fame that they will not vote for him for anything. ' Cj-The total number of persons registered SftyapoftU Is HtQ Wuift 20?? colore. Congress. a It The work of the present session is about con cluded. The reconstruction bill as agreed upon by the Ilouse and Senate was seut to the Presi dent on Saturday afternoon. His veto was ex pected to reach Congrcs3 onTuursday afternoon when the bill would be passed over the veto and Congress adjourn to November next. Tle Senate went Into executive session on Saturday and decided it could not, at this session, act on any of the nominations that were postponed to December. The President therefore made a new nomination of Raymond, Minister to Aus tria, Bancroft to Prussia, and one or two minor appointments. Bancroft was confirmed. The Fulfilment of Prophecy. 4 a a of A correspondent writing from Mexico to a Xew York journal says : "Xothing but executions, imjrisonments and extor tions, have thus far marked the new era which has dawned upon Mexico, by the destruction of the empire and over which so many promising prophecies were made Eighteen hundred men, strangers, aud Mexicans bearing arms, have been shot at Qtieretaro since capitulation of the ci ty ; and not an evening has come, or a morning broken, but what the clang of rifles is heard at the different public pla zas or squares. Whenever we hear these reports, at eventide, or at sunrise, we know that some uncondemned French man, Germans or Mexicans are being pierced through and through by rifle bul lets. No trial allowed no confession granted, but death, death, ami blood blood, are demanded, by this so-called Liberal Government. So far as we have seen, with but few exceptions, it is com posed of a motly crowd, and one thing is certain, no foreigner can live here. The persecutions upon all of them, Amer icans as well as others, have been begun in earnest. All the Consulates and For eign Legations were entered and search ed last evening, against the protest of all tlie respective Consuls and Ministers. "Leave the country we don't want you here," are the greetings given to all for eign residents." No one conversant with the Mexican character expected any thing different from this. It was what many of out leading journals prophesied when the death of Maximillian was announced There is no salvation for Mexico- but in the interference of seme strong hand which will have the power of holding in check the rival factions, and by uniting them on some great national question, give them at least a chance to obtain civilization a privilege they have, as yet never enjoyed. . in a It is reported that serious troubles have broken out in the Austrian province of Galicia, and the troops that were sent to put them down have been beaten by the rioters. The origin of their troubles is traced to Russian emissaries. Gallicia is inhabited by two different Sclavic tribes, the Poles and the Ruthenians. The former are, on the whole, friendly to the Austrian Government, while the Ru thenians, regard themselves as being op pressed by the Poles, are looking out for aid to Russia. As the Sclavi constitute by for the most numerous race of the Austrian Empire, and as, with the excep tion of the Poles, all other Sclavic tribes are greatly discontented with the Aus trian policy, a continuance of these troubles might involve a very serious danger to the empire. The IVashington Chronicle states that a reciprocity treated highly advantage ous to the United States has been conclu ded between our Government and that of the Hawaiian Islands. It adds that this treaty is regarded by competent per sons as the first step toward the acquisi tion of these islands by our Government, with the prospect of securing the virtual control of the trade of the Pacific. The present King of the Islands is not mar ried, and has no. relatives entitled to succession. It is, therefore expected, that with his death the royal house will be come extinct, and the independence of the Islands cease. Countries For Sale. off to to no The Princes of Europe, all of whom are over bead and ears in debt, have discovered a means to raise money. In examining their Revenues they find some pieces of land which they can do without, in case a reasonable price should be offered them, i The success of the Emperor of Russia in disposing of Russian America advan tageously has brought out a number of other propositions. The King of Holland has set nearly the whole of Europe on fire by propos ing to France the sale of Luxemburg, in order, it is staled iu some European papers, to obtaiu some money for himself and for a certain lady in Paris who had formerly been on intimate terms with him. -Being frustrated in his design by the vigilence and defiant attitude of Prussia, the King now intends to put up some of the American Colonies of Holland at auction. The Saltan of Turkey, finding not money enough in the Treasury to pay for his trip to the exhibi tion, has offered to Russia the sale of Jerusa lem for twenty million piastres. In Germany, the Prince ot Waldeck finds thnt the establish ment of the North German Confederation will cost his little country moie money than it can afford to pay, and he consequently has made the offer to Prussia to buy from him the whole Principality. Should his proposition be accept ed, il is believed that half a dozen more of the little members of the Confederation will hasten to make the same proposition. Sweden Is sta ted to be anxious to sell the Island of St. Bur thelemy, in the West Indies. Thus a real ma nia of making money by selling land seems to spread among the princes. But thus far there are more sellers than bayers. Under the head of "Mr. Hog on the Cars," the New York Post vigorously assails those members of the traveling public who are in the habit of monopolizing at least a whole seat, and if possible, another on which to stretch their legs regardless of the convenience of their fel low passengers. Every passenger train on any railroad in the country contains a number of these nuisances who ought to go as freight up on a hog train. in His Majesty, Abdul Aziz, the Sultan of Tur key, has accepted au invitation from the Empe ror of Austria to visit him in Vienna and return to Constantinople from that city. He will re main one week the guest of the Emperor Fran cis Joseph, NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. SHERMAN, II ALL, & SHEKJIAN, Attorneys and CouuHc-llord at Law. Aantabula. Ohio. ttlti Laban S. Sherman, Theo.

HKRKICK. & B BRO. The Union Pacific E. R. Com'v. ARE now constructing a railroad from OMAHA, NEBRASKA, westward towards the Pacific Ocean, makinrr with its connections an unbroken line ACKOSS THE COXTINEXT. The Company now offer a limited amount of their FTPRT MORTGAGE having thirty years to run, and bearing annual interest. payable ou the first day 01 January and July, in the city of New York, at the rate of SIX riiJi UtiNl. m GOLD At Ninety Cent on tke Dollar. This road was completed from Omaha 305 miles west on the 1st of January, lt7, and is fully equipped, and trains arc regularly running over it. The company has now on hand sufficient iron, ties, etc., to finish the re marnrngportion u the Rocky Mountains 212 miles, which is under contract to be done September 1st of this year, and it is expected that the entire road will be in running order from Omaha to its western connection with tlie Central Pacific, now being rapidly built eastward from Sacramento, Cal., during 1B7U- MEANS OF THE C03IPAKT. Estimating the distance to be built by thel'nion Pacific tube 1,25 miles, the United States Government issues its Six per cent, liirty year bonds to the Company as the road is tiuished at the average rate .of about $2S,200 per mile, amounting to $44,2IIH.U00. The company is also permitted to issuejts own Firs Mortgage Bonds to an equal amount, and at the same time, which by special act of Congress are made a First Mortgage on the entire line, the bunds of the United States Sting subordinate to them. The Government makes a donatio ef 12.S00 acre of land to the mile, amounting to lO.lfii.OOO acres, estima ted to be worth f :I.(HIU,UU(). making the total resources exalusive of the capital, $110,41H,(X; but the full value of the lands cannot now be realize!. The authorized Capital Stock of the Company is one hundred Million Dollars, of which five millions haveal readv been paid in. and of which it is not supposed that more than twenty-five millions at most will be required. The cost of the road is estimated by competent engi neers to be about one hundred million dollars, exclusive of equipment. PROSPECTS FOR BUSINESS. The railroad connect ion between Omaha and the ea.-t is now complete, and tlie earnings of the Union Pacific on the sections alreadv finished for the first two weeks in May were $1 13JHJ0. "f hese sectional earnings as the read progresses will much more than pay the interest on the Company's bonds, and the through business over the on ly line, of railroad between the Atlantic and Pacific must be immense. VALUE AND SECURITY OF THE BOSDS. The company respectfully snbmlt that the above state ment of facts fully demonstrates the security of their nouns, and as aamtionai proor they would snggest trial tlie bonds now ottered are less than ten million dollars on 517 miles of the road, on which over twentr million dollars have already been expended: on 330 miles of tn road the cars are now running, and the remaining 1S7 miles are nearly completed. At the present rate of premium on gold these bonds pay an annual interest on the present cost of NINE PER CENT., flnd it is befieved that on the completiea of the road, like the Government Bonds, they will ge above par. The Company intend to sell bat a limited amountat the pres ent low rate, and retain the right to advance the price at their option. Subscriptions will be received in Sew York by the .
