Fremont His Prospects,
Almost every exchange brings to us
iiews of t lie brightening prospects of the
Pathfinder." Enthusiastic meetings arc
held throughout the north, and Fremont
fc Dayton appear to be rapidly gining
ground as the ball rolls onward. Most
f our readers remember 1840, and the
jilmost wonderful progress of the canvass
tar IIarri?on and Tyler. Hut the enthu-i
eiusm for Fremont, reckoning for the time j
f lapped since hi nomination, appears to
lie even greater than the then popular
rry of " Tippecanoe nnd Tyler too."
Tlie people, the great mass of the people,
Martin Van Buren, a free soiler of
1818, is going for Mr. Buchanan because,
as be says, if he honestly redeems his
pledges he must make Kansas a Jree
state, and carry out the Buffalo doctrines.
Thus he is pig, or puppy, just according
to which side of the line he happens to
Tlds has become altogether too flimscy
a dodge to gull the American people in
this contest. Hence the" uncontrollable
mob" are going for Fremont as an entire
relief from all this dishonest quibling.
We repeat, this is not a blind, headlong
rabble thnt is carrying Fremont triumph
antly to the "White House. Never had a
people greater reason on their side.
But is there safety in John C. Fre
mont ? Safety ! the whole history of his
life shows him to be an honest and pat
riotic man. There is no taint or blot upon
his fair fame. This his opponents virtu
ally acknowledge when they fail to bring
a single accusation against him worthy of
one moment's notice. The only charge
they have yet laid their hands or. is, that
he ran off with Jessie Benton, and was
married by a Catholic priest ! And is
this a crime to be baiulipd Hhnut va snKi

! congratulate him for his success, and the
i nation will love Jessie for her love of
! him, and her heroism is giving herself to
the man of her choice in spite of pater
I nal frowns. And as it is now given in
that this is his only weakness, or unfit
ness, it is enough. He must be qualified
for any post in the gift of a free people,
who believe in the blissful rite of mar-
ringe. We trust him, ana the people
will trust him. If elected he will re
deem us from this state of anarchy, bor
der ruffianism and modern slavery.
We say to the friends of the gallant
pathfinder, take courage. Tour success
is almost certain. Zealously support this
gifted son of America, feeling sensible
that your enthusiasm will aid those who
may now be weak in the faith.

Letter from Iowa.
Maquaketa, June, 1856.
Fhiend Eaele: Having a little
leisure I will improve it in writing to you.
In the letters I have heretofore written, I
have told you of some of the peculiarities
of Iowa, its production, and the style of
farming pursued, See I will now try nnd
finish the picture. I may perhaps write
of some tilings of which I have written
before, but will try and give such facts as
will be interesting to your readers.
First, then : of wild fowls : the most !
noticeable are the Prairie Chicken or
Grouse, the Quail and the Wild Turkey.
The prairie chicken is a fowl nearly as
large as the domestic hen, living princi
pally on the open prairie, when it lays
its eggs and rears it young. The turkey
does not appear to be very common, and
I have not yet seen one, but the quail and
chichen are very numerous, and during
the early part of Winter are caught in
traps and sent to Chicago and the East
that of the domestic hen.
Deer are found, too, in some localities
in considerable numbers, but where the
country is so thickly settled as in this vi
cinity, they are not often met with.
The most common of the vermin tribe
are the gopher, the prairie squirrel, and
the rat. The gopher is a kind of hiola,
much resembling the large meadow mole
in form, but nearly as large as a large
rat. They burrow in the ground, making
long channels a few inches below the sur
face, and seldom coming to the light, ex
cept to bring the earth from their excava
tions, or when caught, as they sometimes
are, by setting a trap below the surface
in their path. They do considerable dam

enough of Franklin Pierce and Caleb

The water is generally very good and
clear, to and through the country seems
to be nnderlayed with one vast bed of
limestone rock, it is very soft. The
streams are clear, though few, with usu
ally hard bottom and margins free from
bushes. As an instance of the scarcity
of streams, I will state that I rode thir
teen miles in one direction, the other day,
and neither crossed nor saw one. Water,
however, is easily found by digging a few
feet in the low places between the swells
or rises of ground.
It is the general opinion in the East,
I believe, that people do not suffer from
the ague in this State. So far as I can
learn this is in some sense true. They,
however, have the ague here, though very
little in comparison with what they suffer
in some other States. The country is
generally very free from marshes. In
my thirteen-mile ride the other day, I did
not see a single marsh, or a pool of stag

character of the soil Is such that in a very
short time after a heavy rain very little
water is stagnant on the surface.

Within a few weeks I have received
several letters from people living in the
East, who were rather inclined to double
the stories told of the beauty and richness
of this country and the advantages all
secure who come here. Not being a
farmer myself, his advantages may seem
greater thau they really are, but of the
beauty of the country, and the ease with
which it can be brought under cultivation,
you in the east probably have a very
faint idea. That some have been out
here in an unpleasant season of the year,
has allowed himself to be cheated, and
humbuged, is no proof that it is not a
desireable place to live, or that with pru
dence, money cannot be made. There is
probably not a single man who bought
land in this vicinity three years ago, who
has not doubled his money ; and more
than half have trippled it ; some have
done better than that. A gentleman by
the name of Trout, who lives about a mile
south-west of this village, bought eighty
acres of land one year ago last April, for
$3,000, forty of which he sold about
fortnigut since for $3,000. A few days
make this a criterian by which to judge since the gentleman who bought it, sold

It may be said that this locality is an ex.

Oats will be generally poor throughout

is in full progress, and the grain is very
plump and heavy.
In the region of Wheeling, Va., the
farmers hardly know how to get in the
immense quantity of hay which lies be

Northern Texas, it is stated, will raise

say, may justly be proud of their coun

is estimated at fully six millions bushels
of wheat.
