JOII.VM At one o'clock, prrnisly, on Wednesday the 88th day of lust month, we straddled a nngof the Mustang order, And wrro torm jolting westward, on our way to a town that boasts of the reverential nnme if 8t. John'B. It etug the first time we had ventured outside the corporate limits of Iakota City, uulees to cross over iuio Iowa, we dntertniu-) 1 to nj tiee things 00 oor way. We were purtiaular ly impresxed with tha lieauty, of the country, the richuena of the suit, tho abundance of timber, aud the evident nvtiks of thrift and Industry, everywhere discernahlo. At a dis tance of three miles, lrng measure, aud an hours'e leisure jogging, we reached the town jf Logsn. Logan is situated oa the Missouri bottom alongside the river, lias a good hotel, a saw and grist mill, and hears unmiHtakable sins of hiving been knocked lu tho head There was time when Logun was thejjt.iwn of this county; but bid times operato 1 on it woefully Leaving this place we bore to tho Northwest, for a mile or in ire, aud were soon in the rjeiijhboihoo I of the Logan Timber. Hero a taw mill was ruling and blowing at a furious ra'.o, and men were .busying themselves in ivigeting logs intuit arid lumber out of it There we altered onr course and went aa Bear )y west as the curves and angles in the road would permit. On either Ide were au'ig h.iusaa on every llf mile of ground, up and down the bottom, aa far as the e"e could reach. Standing in the rear, or oil lo one side of eearly al', ware stacks f hay and grain ; and each houae had ts rrib of coru hun ly la whiih Ibe bujhols Oi.uld be caiintod by the hundred. Hre was the first wheut we saw in the Te rrltoty we took (mius rains ta in quire Into tho renult of the erop nn 1 found that spring wheat does exceedingly well The lowekt average yield we heard of was furty buthcls to the tors, and lh hi'umi, I ft y three. We heard of but one man that raised winter wheat, but wore unable to learn what eureeaa he had. The current opinion Is tba winter wheat would not thrive Well, in cooeiijooe of the bard frosts, and the land being stripped of snow by the wild winda of a Nebraska winter. Nevertheless, we think good crops of winter wheat can be raised, If the seed grain ia plowed into the ground to the depth of four or fire inches. Thia wou i protect the roots of Ibe wheat from exposure (0 the frosts and air, when the ground up heaves in the spring.- In due time tit. John's hove in eight and va hove ia tiyht of 8t Johu'a.
