To thi* Editor of The THhunv.
red River Vallbt op ms North, FAnao,
Dakota Territory, .March 15.—Few of your rbad
trt, I Imagine, have any very dear or correct
Idea or conception of thin portion of the North
of its extent and diameter, as well as
0 f ps commercial Importance In the future.
We, in Chicago, are apt to think of tho tied
River Valley of the North os being somewhere
lU p In the vicinity of tho Arctic regions,—some
where near the North Dole; and, with this
thought Impressed upon our minds, we dismiss
Uic subject and give It no further thought. But,
when one reaches hero and actually Hilda him
itlf upon the ground, ho falls to realize that ho
Is any nearer the frozen regions than tho cltl
tens ot Cairo or Memphis do when the? And
themselves in Chicago. The temperature ot
this country, In winter, is tho same ns In Ver
mont, New Hampshire, and Canada; and, In
summer, the same ns in Pennsylvania.
Here He, unquestionably,
]t Is doubtful if another so largo a body of lam!
to favorably adapted to whcat-cuUnfo can any
where be found this side of tho Rocky Moun
(sini, if npon the Continent, and certainly not
ot Uic price at which land here can he bought.
This valley, by reason of Lake Superior setting
to far Inland, Is but J6O miles from lake-navl
gallon, from Duluth, and 085 miles in a due
northwesterly direction from Chicago and
Springfield, HI. Taking the cars ot tbo Mil
waukee A St. Paul or Northwestern Railroad,
at Madison or Rlnzio street, at 10 a. m., one
teaches hero the following evening at 7 p. m.,—
thlrty-lhfve hours from the time of starting.
At SI. Paul, the Northern Pacific cars, and the
cars of the Milwaukee A 81. Paul and North
western Railroads, all come Into the same depot.
This valley extends from Breckinridge (forty
live miles from here), on tho south, to Lake
Winnipeg, on tho north,—a distance of nearly
STB miles, duo north and sbuth. It Is from
forty to fifty miles in width, and embraces over
10,000,000 acres of laud. It Is watered by a
dozen or twenty small rivers; and,
for fertility and productiveness of soil, is
onsurpaSacd. Its eastern border U about
ten miles from tbe Red River at thla point, and
ItswcAtcnl about thirty. .On its eastern bor
der, the Bt. Paul A Pacific Railroad now runs
north soventy-flvo miles to Fisher’s Lauding.
During 1878 this road will probably bo com
pleted to Pembina, wbero it will connect with
the Pembina A Fort Garry Road, which Is being
hiillt by tho Canadian Government, to bo fin
ished July I,lß7B,—giving tho citizens ot Fort
(lorry, or Winnipeg (a place of 7,000 inhabi
tants. on, tho Red River, 225 miles north of
here), no all-rail connection with the Northern
Pacific and tho outside world.
(thS dividing line between Dakota and Minne
sota)—a stream of good depth from here to
Lake Winnipeg, with the exception of a abort
distance about sixty miles below here—mean
ders through the centre (or very nearly the cen
tre) of the valley. It is about 10U feet In width,
ami is certainly, without any exception,
tbc crookcdcst stream upon this Con
tinent, traversing 550 miles to make
225 in a direct lino. There aro eight good
(died steamers plying upon It, between Fargo,
Fisher’s Landing (the present terminus of tho
Pt. Fuul & Fm-illc Ball rood), and Winnipeg;
ami they are said to do a heavy and verv lucra
tive business, during the season of navigation,
In tho way of transporting settlcrfc and (heir
supplies to Manitoba, and all along up aud
down the valley mirth of here,—bringing the
products of tbo country to market, In return.
This gives your readers the outline of the
valley; , ,
The roll Is a very rich black mold, from eight
een inches to four feet In depth, resting upon a
clay sub-soil. This sub-soli seems to bo strong
ly mixed or imprcguutcd, oil through, with
gypsum or pieces of limestone, quite soft, ami
is said to be as productive of wheat as tho top
soil. At.Gooso River, thirty-five miles north of
this place, this sub-soil is said to crop out to
the surface: and hero it was that the largest
crop of wheat raised in the valley last season Is
reported to have been grown. With such a poll,
it is claimed that these lands cannot bo exhaust
ed by wheat or any other culture. At fort
Garry and around tho Hudson’s Ray settle
ment, wheat Is said to have been
ckoppbu von fifty ibaiis continuously,
without tho lauds showing tho least sign to-day
of exhaustion or weakness. It is also said that,
when the gophers burrow fb the wheat-tlclds in
tills vicinity, throwing up tho sub-soil, the
wheat-plant Immediately around the gopher
hole outstrips the balance of the Held. This
goes to show that the sub-soil IS of overyfertilo
nature, and would act as a fertilizer If it could
be brought to tbe surface and mixed wltb tho
top-soil which of Itself is extremely rich and
would scorn to require no aid. Buell a thing as
resting soil or rotating crops Is never thought of
in this section; neither Is theopplylngof manure
to land a consideration with farmers in this val
It is in this valley that Mr. Dolrymple and his
associates— Mr. George W. Cass, of New York;
Mr. P. R. Cheuey.of Boston; and Messrs. Gran
din Rrotbers, of Tldloule, fa.—have their large
farms, besides numbers of others. It Is here
thut farming is prosecuted as a business, and Is
followed as energetically and systematically u
any business in Chicago, and upon the same
principles. Tue work la directed and tho ac
counts kept lu the same, manner aa Is the bust
ucssof any largo manufactory in our city. A few
items in relation lu t\vo of these farms may not
l\unloterest(ng to your readers. 1 speak of
tlieeo for the resson that they are more exten
sive and more fully developed than auy others.

3,415 acres. The yield of this U. 415 acres (all
but about 1,400 of It upon sod-laud, broken In
May and June, 1870, and not backset or rc
plowed) was T 0,413 bushels,—an average of
twenty-three and uue-fuurth bushels. To get
tin* land Into shape, and to cultivate nod har
vest this crop, required twenty-four breaking
plows, 100 stubble-plows, sixty-seven harrows,
twenty-six broadcast seeders, twenty-six har
vesters, and tivo steam threshing-machines.
The crop of 187 b will be 8,000 seres. The ground
Is now prepared, and this body or tract will bo
sown as soon as the laud is sufficiently dry: 100
acres were seeded a week ago. w hen work had

Mr. Dalrvmpie is Interested In both

and supervision.

am reliably Informed that their crops of 1870

culture, up to and Including the harvesting of
the cron of 1877. This shows the remunerative
character of this kind of Investment when prose
cuted as other kinds of business arc conducted.
Considering its safety and its returns, there are
few enterprises (inlay, followed for a term of
years, which equal It for the Investment of
money; and, wnen this is said, duo allowance
Is made for drawluuks In the shape of grass
hoppers, Injury to crops, etc. Bt. Paul and
Minneapolis capitalists see this, and are heavily
investing in large farming In the different
wheat-crowing sections of Minnesota and
Dakota; and to me It Is a matter of surprise
that Chicago capitalists do not turn their at
tention In ttds same direction. In the growing
of wheat, exclusively as a business, upon
a largo scale, large economies ran bo
practiced; and among the number may he
mentioned the fact of the wheat-ernp being
made and harvested In about four months, ne
cessitating ft farmer being under expense only
about one-half the year. After a crop Is har
vested, the ground Is replowed, and there (a
nothing more to do until seed-time the follow
ing April. The hands are paid off. when they
go into the pineries of Northern Minnesota, and
work until tUo coming spring, when they return
to the farm.

ticularly wheat-culture upon a largo scale) by
reason ot its sol), size, surface, climate, ami ab
sence of rain during tbe harvest-season, it Is

that this Is a characteristic of It all over. A
farmer having five sections, side by tide, can
run almost nn unbroken furrow five mites in
any direction; aud It is said this can bo done In
almost any carl of the valley. This matter of
lung furrows or long stretches In farming is a
great saving,—a great economy In the working
of hands and loams In Strung force. Thera Is
no time lost.
Mr. Dalrymole works, Ids forces, either at
plowing,-harrowing, seeding, or harvesting, In
battalions of ten or fifteen teams together,—
one following closely upon the other, with a
foreman over alLWiVhcn a break occurs, or any
implement gels dH of order, It Is thrown out

again takes Its place at tho foot of the line, and
proceeds to do its work in regular order. He

than a mile. This keens his men aud teams con
stantly In action, aud little time Is wasted In
frequent turnings.

about tho only evidence thev have, so the peo
ple say, of their being nearer tho North Pole
than wu arc, in summer, If not In winter), hot ut
midday, cool at nlglu— seems favogpbly adapt
ed to wheat-culture. It Is considered that It is
the climate north of 47 degrees, together with
tho soil lo this northern latitude, which produces
whot Is called 41 No. 1 Hard Minnesota ’’ wheat.
During harvest-season there Is salt} to b<*no
rain la this section of the country, or, If any,
only very light, not sufficient to interfere with
harvest-work. The climate here Is tho same as
In Northern Minnesota, so noted the world over
for Its hcalthfuincss. There Is no such thing
known hero as fever and ague of consumption,
except it ho cases whore persons have conic here
lo get relief. Of these there aro quite a num
ber settled in tho valley and west, who arc re

Tlio principal product of this section Is

market, reports of which are received here three
times daily. There la at all times a cash mar

cents. The market hero to-day Is 03 coots.
The supply of labor is said to bo equal to the
demand, at about 130 per month, and Is com
,posed largely of Hermans, Norwegians, and
Mcnuonltcs. The price of laud Is from $1.25 to
$lO per aero, according to quality and location.
Fuel Is scarce hero: the valley Is not well sup
plied, although this county (Cass) Is' said to
contain 50.000 acres of timber. Wood at this
point is $3 to $3.50 per cord. Fifty to seventy
five miles cost of hero there Is timber Ip great
abundance. Utilizing hay and straw /or fuel
does not seem to have been adopted hero as yet
to any extent; that It can bo done, with press

question. As soon as the Northern Pacific Hall

miles, coal of good quality can be delivered In
the valley at a cost not exceeding $1 per ton,—
when this drawback will have been overcome.

Railroad Lnnd-Ofllcc, the past six months, have

lands, which, report says, are open to settle
meat at $1,115 per acre or thereabouts,—lands ns
well adapted to the culture of wheat, outs, and
barley as those I have already described. Mani
toba, it Is thought, will be settled very largely
this year and next bv Canadians, who will reach
it via tbe Northern I'adilc Railroad and Red
River, in advance of the completion of the
Canadian I’nclrtc Railroad, two years hence,
from fort William, on Lako Superior, to a
point 250 miles west of the Red-River Valley.
Men of capital aro already here,—but not in
largo numbers,— looking around; while small
settlers—those who build up a qouutry—have
uot commenced to come in yet freely. It Is too
icrosscs tho valley at tins polut; It has a good
.roadbed, good iron, and flrst-elass engines and
’cars (plenty of tbe latter); ami, under tho man

A Denunciation of the Present Cola, end a
Plea for the Coin of 1703.
Cincinnati Onmintrelat.
The new dollar) as a work of art, la not popu
lar. It does not look like on American coin.
The eagle is not an American eagle, but comes
from the French. The “lu God we trust ”
motto, Itself m doubtful taste, la made ludi
crously prominent and placed in German text.
On both aides tbe coin la crowded, and the effect
Is out pleasing. Tbe best thing that could have
been done would have been tbe adoption of tbe
design uf the dollar of 17113. As we are restor
ing ilie old standard, we should bare reproduced
tbe old coin.
Inquiry develops tbe fact that no are Indebt
ed to Ur. Llodermsn (or all that U exceptional
and inappropriate lu the new dollar, in tho
Ural place, having aided m Imposing, as lie
thought, for all time, the lirltlsh gold policy
upon this country, be introduced as coin-design
er «u English engraver, Mr. Morgan. This was
not all. He felt tbo necessity of Illustrating
bla authority, and did It by dictating arbitrary
conditions to tbe declgoer. There could nut
have been a more perfect arrangement lor pro
ducing the failure that is before the country.
The Philadelphia Tuntt telis us what this med
dling was in the following terms:
One day when Director Llnderman waa talking
to Mr. Morgan about the reverse, bo suggested
that ibere should be no more o( that “gridiron
shield" business on tbe national fowl's breast.
The Director alluded lu tbs shield of tbe great
coat-of-aruis o( tbo Republic. Tbe Director fur
ther charged that there should be no more lettilnz
down on tbe part of tbe eagle. He bad settled
down about enough, lie must, Indeed, bo so ed?
graved as to appear in the very act of ascending.
Tbe coin of tbe nation should Indicate tbu aspira
tion of tbe Liberty (JodJess and of the people.
Mr. Morgan could not. therefore, eelect
tbe eprcadlng eagle, tbe natural, shrieking
monarch of tbe Rockies; nor could be
chouae tbe heraldic bird, this being a
free laud, and accordingly adopted whit be colls
the heroic design. Tbs eagle on tbe new dollar Is,
then heroic. IDs body U erect, Inclining to tbe
left, tbe bead being poised as If in anger, with
shut besk pointing contrariwise. Wlilia tbe old
wings droop, the new ones ore raised as If for
(light, and the claws are together. The wings, in
fact, chiefly mfcrk the new filed.
Po the ridiculous ewrle that spoils tho new
coin Is Dr. Mndcrman'a bird, and It seems to
boon lust about such a strain as the Doctor
himself. Tlic only part of the design of the coin
that is not unfamiliar and offensive is the Lib
erty head, ami all of it. that is good Ik taken
from the old coin. The Philadelphia 7<mrs
Inmaklngthe half-dollar design (thedollarde

with the Idea of the old familiar “Liberty held.”
lie was i)iea«cd with the Idea more than with the
brad, lie knew, too, that no British device edhld
supersede In her own land the bright counterpart
of the conventional goddess, tie recognised the
majesty of (be design, and adopted It fur his ob
verse. lint If. when the new dollars are rlrco
luted freely, one will take the trouble to compare
the Englishman's “Improved head" with that
upon the old coins, the result of lus tinkering will
become very noticeable. The chin of the goddess
in the new de«lcn is prominently m<>te
Arm, more rounding and rernlar. The
faint attempt at a double chin seen In
former work Is tost, and the lower part of the re
lief Is said to prove the real clvhl/ed woman this
time. Nor do tbe flowing locks, manure and wavy,
Is they escape from the complete can, cover the
ear. Which is as marked an organ as the straight,
fno nose. Once n designer pictured the Liberty
nose as slightly retrousse. —he wanted to catch the
real appearance of the American woman, even at
the expense of a fancy nose. Tno moot delicate
touch of the engraver's art In the new head comes,
however, as he himself asserts, in the fullness of
the face and the line depression of the centre of the
relief. When measured with mlnnie detail the
parts of the head almnt tho ear are found to be
scarcely above the surface of the coin: yet so per
fect la the execution that the same ronndness ap

an achievement of the deceptive relief.
it Is creditable to Mr. Morgan's lute (hut ho
was pleased with the old familiar Liberty lieail,
but It la necessary to say that the chances are
not successful. It would ho a good thing for
Congress to interfere and order the preparation
of new dies for the reproduction of the ancient

Utica, 111,, March 18.—Perhaps but few of
the readers of Tub Tribune know where Utica
Is. Let a “ runner,” wUo had occasion to stop
there u day or two on business, ntni who be
come dceplr Interested in Its condition and
prospects, enlighten them.
Utica Is a small town on the line of the Chi
cago, Itock Island & Pacific Bond, In LaSalle
County. ten miles west of Ottawa and lire
cast of LaSalle. It Is on excellent point fur
the grain-trade, and has cement-works of great
value, hut the town has never had a verr
good reputation abroad, indeed, It bas always
had a pretty hard numc.
Fortunately, a change has been wrought.
Utica has been redeemed. A revival of wonder
ful proportions has made almost a dean sweep.
The Baptist Church, from a handful of breth
ren, has been enlarged an hundred fold. And,
what Is so wonderful, the additions to the
church have Itecu from the ranks of the busi
ness portion of the people, embracing the
wealth, Intelligence, rellnement, and moral
worth of the community. Many of the readers
of Tub Tribune will recogulzo familiar names
lu the following: Nlccum, Gilbert. Norton,
Griffin, White, Stewart, Hadley, KobroU, Irwin,
Wilson. Pierce, Powdcrly, Bartlett. No wonder
the zeotous pastor feels to thank God and take
courage. Utica Is redeemed. K.
