WORTHINGTON, NOBLES, Co., MINN., September 11, 1872. r wish to - rew words concernine Editob Chronicle : For the ben efit of those of your readers who are looking to the West for future homes, the State of Minnesota. I left War ren county on,y a few month8 ag0i haviner Joined the National Colony, and came to South-western Minneso- to, where lie the cream of the Minne- sota prairies. Before epeaki ng of this section particularly, let me say some- thing of the State in general. Minnesota, as its name indicates, is the water State. It gives rise to the Mississippi and the Bed River of the North'and to tbousands'of beautiful lakes. Its position at the bead of navigation of the two great water routes of the continent, viz: the iua uuu iue jussissippi, must give it vast importance as a commercial State, since tbe products of the great liCK llVJl IU-HCSIC1 11 Cm IHQ UUW UlCU" ing up so rapidly, must pour through Minnesota as through a funnel to reach water transportation. Hence Minnesota must produce one or two of the large cities of the continent St. Paul is leapine forward with seven-league commercial boots, and must be, unless some lake port should take her trade, the Chicago or the SL Louis of the north west. It is plain to tbe most casual observer that three great cities are'demanded in the Mis sissippi Valley region, and that St. Paul bas the location and the start for the third or most northerly one of the three. The development of Min- nesota has been more rapid, If any - thing, than Kansas, and the tide of population, which once set so strong- ly toward the central belt of country, now turning toward tne norm- west.' Ten years ago Minnesota bad net a mile rf railroad; in 1S66 it had but three . undred miles, while to- day mere are z.oou miies in operation in tile Diate. Dix vears a to tue wutai nmr. iuRiiiorraail onn Ofrfi of tin ah - i,:!. (h. it ia -n mnnm els, while this year It is 30,000.000. nA the State is iust fairly beginning its development There are 54,000,000 acres of land in the State chiefly prairie, a large portion of which Is still open to homestead entry. Two three years more, however, will No other State has made such ample provision for public schools. Two section of land have been set aside in each township for school purposes, making over three millions of acres, which at the present low or minimum rate would yield a school fund of $15,000,000. Over forty thousand acres have been given to endow a State University, which is now in opera t;on at St. Anthony and at which the youth of the State can secure an education, tuition free. There are three Normal schools in the State.one which, at Winona, is said to be probably the'best in tbe country. As an agricultural State, Minneso ranks among the first It is ad mitted to be the best wheat State east the Rocky Mountains. In average yield of corn per acre it is surpassed Illinois only, while as a bay State I shows a yield per acre about three 1 times that of the great hay State of nhi " . .. Ohio. Stock raising here is very .v juuuuuio suu s uaeswui, nere grass proh table and successful, where grass yields from two to three tons, and yields from two to three tons, and rutabaras from HOO r 1 vm hi,th-la n I ' 6 .l're- rults S"1 to yie,d abun- uaimy. mere was a time when it was Questionable vholhor friiita Could be Successfully Cultivated but ( . , (M f ... . .

The winters are thought by many to be tbe pleas- I antest part of the year, since they are never open or lainy aud the sled aud sleigh are in constant demand. Snow usually falls toward the holidays aud lies until spring. The cold winter is usua llytbe first objection urged against coming to the Minnesota prairies. But tbe acclimted Minnesotian prefers the winter here to. that of Ohio or New York. The temperature is lower, but tbe testimony is uniform to the effect that one does not suffer from the cold as much as in more southern lati tudes. This is said to be due to the dryness of the atmosphere, which ... . - like a dry blanket to the skin, while a damp atmosphere is like a wet blankpt. sn.l rrnnoa i-MuinosB r. uiera go aooui meir worK in sniit sleevesjn tbe dead of the Minnesota winter. Another chief objection to a settlement on the Minnesota prai ries, is the lack of timber. Buftbe settler soon discovers that it is much easier and cheaper to grow timber than it is to clear it off. It is claimed that the same amount of labor and time expended in clearing a farm, expended here in raising wheat, will make a man comparalive'y rich, Here is the farmer's paradise. The land lies ready for the plough, and the only labor is that of raising and gathering crops. These prairies were reserved for this age of railroads and improved implements. Here the faimer can drive anywhere until he finds a farm to suit him and then he has only to unload his implements and, while sitting aloft in the shade, drive his team to a fortune. This is modern or prairie farming. And now what are tbe opportuni- ties for men of moderate means ? Let us see. First, tbe government gives him the laud ; cr, along the road, the railroad company sells it to him at from $6 to $10 an acre, with one-tenth down and five years time to pay up. Secondly, nature clears, drains and dresses the land for him, and he bas only to "tickle it with a hoe aud it will laugh with a harvest." Thirdly, j"-" " ui-ou. , uiu, ue can oi:nS ins lamuy uere reduction of from 10 to 50 per cent. laic UlIU liciguil, UUU "U U llllimi I and implements at a discount. A man to get on smoothly should come with enough money to build a bouse a cost of $100 or $200, to buy some implements, and have something left for emergencies. But men have come Minnesota with just enough money ft-t here, have entered claims, wo. ked for others to pay their way, add have come out in a few years with a cultivated farm. A man who came to the Sauk Valley ten years ajo with only a yoke of oxen, now owns a section of land u nder cultiva- lion and is a rich man extensively, like Men who Dalrymple, who cleared $loU,uuu la hve years raising wheat, make foitunes in a few years. A few words now concerning this section of the State aud the National Colony. The 'ands of the Colony embrace fifteen townships lying chiefly in Nobles county, three town- snips loppingover into lowa. onn- iiik.uu, iue cuie. town ui tne tomDy. 177 milea from Rt. Paul and n?i.. LilM(mm RimiTPiitr nn ih.'sinnr miles from bioux City, on the bioux City and St. Paul railroad. The prairie u undulating, well watered with lakes and streams, the soil be rich black loam from two to four feet deep with clay aud gravel subsoil. This is said to be tbe soil of soils for wheat There are proba fifty lakes in the county, the chief ones of which are Okabena, about six miles in circumference ; Ocbeeda, about seven miles long ; and Graham lakes, each several miles in length. Okabena is one of the finest the smaller Minnesota lakes. It beautifully curved bhores with elevated points for residence sites and bottom ol sand and gravel, while banks in many places are built with boulders like walls hvd by hand. From this lake the town obtains water, ice, fish, sand, gravel, stone, to say nothing of boating, bathing and fishing. The town of Worthington is situated on tbe north sboie of this lake and commands a I view of the lake and tbe prairie milei beyond. Graham lakes are . . beautiful sheets of water, with timbered shores and are surrounded a beautiful farming country. A hotel will be opened theie next year these lakes will become one of i, i.u .

Horace Greeley wss ibeu, as ever since the first es tablishment of that paper, its chief editor. Cw leaders, both Democrats and Republicans, are asked to look it over carefully, and then scan the present political situation. They will probably discern a something akiu to mockery In the title of ''Old Honesty," which H. G.'s supporters are wont to apply to their candidate : "The Bebellion was Democratic. Itbioke out in Democratic States. It was fostered by Northern Demo crats. Democrats o nice red tbe Kebel Army. Dem jcrats made up its rank and tile. Democrats filled every office in the Confederate Government from tbe Presidency down to the clerk ships and the messengerships. There wasn't a itepuoiican witn a snoui der strap, or a musket, or a "place ' in the whole devilish concern. In the Democratic City of Washington, under the Democratic administration of Buchanan, the rebellion was con spired and prepared. A Democratic member of that Democratic adminis tration stripped the North of arms and smuggled them over to the South, aud sent the army where it would be unavailable, or could easily be cap tured. A Democratic member of that Democratic administration scat tered the navy over the world, so that it could not be used on the rebel seaboard. A Democratic Secretaiy of the Treasury plundered his trust to supply tue .Rebellion witn money. A Democratic President, entreated to dobouethingtosave the natiou, re- lused, declaring and arguing that the n. . . . . . .1 j r , . i f.u . ally defend itself, and that it was un- lawful to coerce rebels, and ne sat .lll.nin l;l,. .(.- TVlTIAAI-nf .ml .u, ,. uuu c lu u.Uv... traitor that he was. and allowed . , - nation's arsenals to be plundered, auu tne nation s snips, navy varus and fortresses to be seized, and the rebel armies to be organized, without lil'tipga finger to prevent.

Each in- gredieut pays its quota for the cost of Democracy to the country, iue smoker inhales Democracy. I he sick man is physicked with Democ racy. The laboring man gives about one hour's labor to pay for Democra cy. The capitalist pays one-tenth of his income for the cost or tne Demo cratic nartv. Every transfer of prop ery is saddled with the Democratic burden. Before he is begotten the child is subject to Democratic tax. From tbe cradle to tha grave he is never free from it Tbe funeral mournins must firt pay the penally of Democratic rule, and a- portion of portion of d must go I tbat which he leaves behind must go into this Democratic vortex. Gene- ration after generation iwlll carry this burden from birth to death. But for the Democratic tarty our people would bardly have known the nature of taxation. But for the Democratic party, the hundreds of thousand; of young men whose bones are strewn over tbe earth, would now be Drodutive laborers and the support and comfort of families now desolate. No one can attempt to deny this in dictment. No one can pretend that tbe Democratic party had any cause for rebellion. 1 et it has the eiironte- to cry over the burden of taxation As the father of the Democratic par- tv. when he bad stripped Job of fami ly and Dossessions. CUargea it lO niSlin,h own sins, and sought to draw him from Iiis integrity, so his Democratic sous now come forth with equal ef- frotery, and charge their doings upon the loyal people, and hypocritically howl over their afllictions, and seek to seduce them from tbeir integrity, to elect to dowf r the party which bas brought all these woes upon tbe land."

" If a man owns a farm, no difference how poorly it may be improved, or how much the soil may have been reduced by mismanagement, bis mer chant, his grocer, his blacksmith, all knowing the advantage of selling on time, urge him to open an account, and pay when he sells his grain or his stock. They know that the ex tra trade they will get will more than pay for all tbe bad debts which may be made, to say nothiug of the ex tra profit they make by selling to parties who buy on time. m It is with no little pride the farmer accepts tbe proposition, with the ' mistaken idea that the current value of a man's credit bas to do with his financial success. The favor of hav ing time on his puchases is greatly enlarged on, and he is apt to think the present the scarcest time he will ever have. He estimates a large yield in the coming crop, with better nri- ces than the present, and buys accor dingly. The family has-full license to uuy what the fancy dictates, rather than what the necessities require. At tbe end of the year, which always comes to soon to the man in debt the farmer must settle up accounts, and is shocked at the mountain which bas risen up before him, as hs eye glances up tbe long list of items which can now hardly be accounted for. Perhaps with his last dollar be N8 abie to pay his current expenses, lnri nnofa ,h , rr,;Z - I1 uu an,a A l-Ul,AA V. J V, 1 UOJ AJ K ' m nenentea Dy the experience which is the best of teachers.

No man of reason will deny, that with a little management, and a de termination to adopt the tbe cash system, especially as far as the buy intr ot nnnrodticti ii-a artiploa la inn. cerned, he can work his way through ne year. if he has kept out of debt. he now bas time by the fore-lock. and can pay cash for all be buys, saving at least twenty per cent upon nis purcnases : besides this, he will only buy such articles as he actually needs, thereby saving twenty per cent more. Only one year is thus required to bring tbe industrious farmer from the side of tbe credit system over to that of tbe cash system and with money left in his pocket as soon as tne farmer is able to mate this cbauge in the manner of con ducting his business, he will be on the high road to fortune. In this way they may place themselves be yond the control of at least some of the "middle men." Hint on Ornamental Tree Planting. the nouse especially where they will screen from view the back yard, sta Democratic bIe ete , ,d form - background to Innbaaawolt no hoallhriilnooa More attention ought to be given to ornamenting village and farm door yards with trees. The following sug gestions on this subject from the Ohio farmer are in the main very sensi ble: Do not plant trees directly in front of the bouse. Tbe ground here, espe cially the central part, should be in grass alone. Kept neat and smootn by frequent mowing. A few flower beds may be cut in tbe sod, near the dwel ling, or by the side of tbe pathway. n.1 A faw .ma. and alimlv ait itrrtT jary near the fencet0 give shade and fcKifp. an.,! Htill mora at tha sidn of tha Tiew of tne premises from tbe slreek Do not plant so many trees about the house as to exclude the sunshine. Too much shade is a common fault with the older class of residenees.and careful observation will show that families in such houses are much more liable to sickness than those living in houses where sunshine and air have free scope. Modern science bas done good service in teaching tbe value of sunshine and dry earth aa disinfec tants or preventives of disease. 1 be greatest improvement could be made of many KOOj residences of the older oy tne r use of the woodman's Do not plant large growing trees in small yards, nor tall growing trees near low dwellings. Most of our vil lage door-yards are quite small, and when filled up, as is often the case, with a few large trees, they appear far more diminitive than they would if planted with shrubs or dwarf trees; and tbe low stature of our older style houses is doubly conspicuous where tall trees are seen towering higher than the cornice. For small yards and for cemetery lots the dwarfish and , av.,fflli ir ever green trees are most roDrjate and Qjtea yariety of these can now be had at all good nor- . . - . .- series: but such kinds as tho Norway nr.if. and Aimtrian ninn heretof.. commonly planted, should be only used 1.1 large grou ads ana for screens ana wiDa breaKs. $ut tnose wno at .j, l... .hew .nH nthA, rm. mw .ngtrees planted in sma'l lots, can check their growth and improve tbeir premises by removing .hem from a central position to one side or, if too large for removal, by cutting on tne top and clipping the sides annually, and if too thrifty, cutting off some of the roots. Do not plant or tolerate apple or rutwh treoa In tha front vard. Pear ana cherry trees are more gymmein cal, and a few of these may be allowed on the side of large front grounds, but the apple and peach usually look shabby, and should occupy back premises with tbe cabbage aud cur rant bush.
