But little more than a month re mains before the November Election]— In most counties nominations have been made, but here no convention has jet been called. The reason is thafc the old Court House Clique in Austin who have heretofore driven the people un der a lash of tyranny, are this year met at every corner with an emphatic No. Hundreds of men that have worn the yoke for years and in comparative sil ence, positively and unqualifiedly assert that they* will bear it no longer.— This is not the impulse of a moment. It is the firm resolve of candid, think ing citizens based upon a.settled con viction after mature deliberation, that the safety of the party and the highest welfare of the people demand that the present administration of county officers should be changed. This condition of things staggers the old ring leaders.— In the near future they read the cer tain overthrow of their dynasty. But they will not die, with out a desperate struggle. No, 'they have too much at stake. New incumbents in office would lay bare before the people the gigantic frauds that have been perpetrated for years. Daily their counsels are held and in desperation they exclaim, No we cannot we must not have a new man in the Treasurers office this fall unless we cfincontrol liiut. Fur better, that we spend thousands of dollars to pre vent it. The programme as at present adopt ed so far as we are able to learn is this. The convention, provided only one is called, is to be delayed until the very eve cf election, so that but few towns will be prepared for it. Assistance is to be secured by inakiug pledges to irieh in various parts of the county. If in this way a town or two can be Secured the delegates can easily be harnessed into the old traces, after they get to the convention. With one man work-, ing for Representative in LeRoy, an other for Treasurer in Frankford or Racine, it is hoped a little aid can ^be secured. There are always men enough who can be duped and sold year after year in this way. Not succeeding in getting a majority of delegates in this way the old system of packing caucus es and getting up bogus delegations will be resorted to, and an attempt will be made to bully the convention as was done last year at LeRoy and ride over the will of the majority. It may as well be understood first as last, that with the present prospects of defeat, the old ring have no intention of allowing any convention to be a fair expression of tho will of the people.— They are too Well versed in frauds, to allow their power to slip away when in trigue and corruption will save it.— Again, in the event that neither, of the above plans is made to win, it is their* intention to fuse with the Democrats and run a bolting ticket. Snow thinks he succeeded in this once and why not again \YC urge the people to be active and vigilant, constantly on the lookout for tricks and chicanery, such as we hare eefc-fortb. Lft*t-y«ar a. uiuutlx previous to the election we predicted that Le Roy would bo sold out, and that the ring would fuse with Demo crats our predictions were verified. One word further. Send no man that ean be bought, as a delegate to t.lie con vention. Pick tried and true men this time if never before. Shallowness. Some, men's brains are easily con fused. They can see no difference between a principle and its advocates. Some editors are so shallow as to mis take a cause or principle for the men who representor believe it. Hence, instead of using arguments to disprove a doctrine, they traduce those who preaob the doctrine. What logic? Aa if to prove that a minister is bad, wicked and corrupt, would aleo prove the Christian religion a fraud upon the people. This is precisely the course pursued by the editors of the insignifi cant partnership concern known as the Democrat and Register. Inste of attempting to disprove the arguments and facts presented by the TRANSCRIPT, they spend their breath and strength barking at the man, whom they igno rantly surmise to be the editor. Uiyible tp present a fact or figure, they resort 'to filth and* billingHge^o too low for the denizens of a doggery. Go on gentle men, your shallowness is transparent and you are cuttiug your own throats faster than we could do it for you, should we make the attempt. People's movement.—Who Op poses Them.—They Can be Pre vented. There are greater calamities which can befall a people than the disruption of a political party. One of them is the perpetuation of puhlie. corruption and fraud. In quite a large number of counties in this State, political organi zations are now being formed under the name of Peoples' Movement." In most eases the leaders of these move* ments are, and have been active and staunch friends and supporters of the Republican party. A large majority of the men who identify themselves with the new organizations are Republicans. In several counties, the organization has already assumed formidable propor tion. It, then, becomes every consis tent Republican who is devoted to the interests of the party to inquire as to the cause of this disaffection. It is too serious a matter to be cast off with sneers and ridicule. To malign the lea den does not meet the emergency. A temporary browbeating into silence would only prepare the'way for another and more serious out-cropping of the same difficulty. In our judgment these movements are unmistakeable evidence of something wrong in the party, some prevailing evil which if not remedied soon, will work eventual Tuin. In every instance so far as we are informed, frands corrup tion in office, burdonsome taxation, the sudden accumulation of wealth by coun ty officers who get small salaries, per verting public offices into instruments of private gain ,•—the continuing of a few men around the Court House and County Seat for the purpose of manip ulating and contvoling local politics, packing caucuses and conventions-^ some one or all of these are alledged as the ground of action. Most Republi can journals of the State deprecate and ridicule these inpvements and without sufficient ground, alledge that they are the offspring of disappointed office seek ers, while Democratic editors hail them as harbingers of permanent dissolution of the party when they can step in and reap tjie spoils. The wisest course on the part of Re publicans, is manifestly to commence the work of reform. The party which liaa not the disposition nor ability to correct its own evils, must be short lived. It is much better for the party to ac knowledge that many of the present office holders are venal and corrnpt, and to set about the work of removing them at once, than to deny the truth for the sake of spoil and lead our fenemies to take advantage of the growing disaffec tion among the people. As a general rule the newspapers throughout the State, which pour otu their bitterness upon the leaders of peoples movements are in the present enjoyment of ill gotten gain, which these political rings have plundered from the people.. They would rather the party go to, destruction than give up their crumbs. Let the leading Republican journals of the State, including the Saint Paul Press, that notorious father of rings and venal ity, and opposcr of reform. Come out and advocate the removal of every -man from office about whom even the sus picion of corruption has gathered, and these lamented "People's Movements" would soon cease to exist. If a party wojld live it must be pure, and if it has not vitality enough to purify itself its days are numbered. Mal-praetice. Last week the Register, a dimiutive sheet published in this place, devoted about one-half its space to thOSubject of Therapeutics and Malpractice. The Register evidently likes Doctors. It likes their medicines It swallows any kind of a dose administered by a man that smells of old fashioned saddlebags. Furthermore it is .deeply devoted to quackery—whether from habit or in stinct we are unable to say, but true it is that anything or anybody gotten up upon the principle of deception receives ft.n«" if. .a full TlliH rlis sertation on malpractice seems to have been spontaneous, and why should it not be, coming from a journal that has never adopted any other practice. But there was an object in printing this particular article at this particular time. A thick headed, conceited pseudo disciple of Esculapeus has been sued for making a poor man a life cripple as the result of a simple pistol shot entering the leg below the knee. An artery had been severed and the brainless impost er did not know enough to take it up, in fact did not know it ought to be taken up.— Instead of taking out the ball he let it rot out. This quack is to be tried by a jury of his peers from the county. He don't dure to meet the case squarely, so he hires the little crumb-picking county paper to try to prejudice people in his favor by publishing an old case picked up in the British Provinces. American eases did not suit his purposes. The case is this A sickly old lady, 60 years of age broke her thigh. The doc tor set it three days after it was broken. She was then taken suddenly ill with cholera morbus, and entreated the sur geon to let the- limb go and save her life. He did so and when she got up found the broken leg shorter than the other. She then got mad and sued the Dr., and the court very properly said she was not entitled to recover any thing. This was a very different case from the one the Register is hired to gloss over.— Hero a well, midle-aged man was shot with a small pistol. The shot entered below the knee, and the man should have been well in a month or less, and would have been if properly treated.. Try again little crumb-picker, your quackery is too transparent. Letter from California. Through the kindness of J. G. Wright, Esq., we arc permitted to pub lish a portion of a private letter received fiotn Rev. A. J. Nelson, since he reached California. 11 was not intended for the pnblie eye but it contains many interesting particulars which newspaper writers too frequointly overlook. Santa Clara, Cal., Sep. 3d, 1869. DK^R BRO. I have just finished my week's labor thu is only my second week, yet I've seen and learned much of California. With the exception of the dust and the mixed population I like the State even better than I expected. Yet the dust is no more than I have seen in Ohio, and it blows less than in Minn., and is by no means' as disagreeable as the Minnesota winds that fill the eyes with sand. The population is a hetero geneous hotch-potch of every nation un der heaven, yet the Yankee element largely predominates and is rapidly ab sorbing all others. The people are or derly and genteel, in all the towns I've been in, I have not seen as many drun ken men as I did in Austin in one day. The saloons will not average more than half the number as Minn., and more orderly. The Yankee population is genteel and kind we have been re ceived as kindly and shown as much attention as in any plaoe we have lived, and we soon expect a large circle friends who no doubt will seem to us as good and true as any we have left. This is the land of fruit and flowers. We have now all around us the finest orchards, gardens and homes I ever sawsome are truly magnificent. Mr. Pierce, a gentleman who came, to this State a few years ago, a poor young man, has tiiade a fortune mining and now asa monthly income of $20,000.— His home is princely, orchards and trees, flowers and fountains are so inter mingled as to be a treat to look at.— There are single homes here worth half ofMower county. There is no mining near us save the great Quick Silver Mine—the. largest. ground. of Are Count U} the world which is in sight of our house though fifteen miles distant. Our town is in a valley nearly surrounded by mountains so that we are in a circum ference about twenty miles across. The mountains are thousands of feet high, and seem to us about a mils off, when they arc ten. The town looks some thing lik& Winona in June—full of trees and shrubs and flowers. It covers about as much ground, but only con tains about one-fourth the people.— Here about- four families are the most that live on a block, and some occupy several blocks. Everybody has his own orchard, fruit is abundant so that it is worth nothing but the price paid the hucksters for picking it up and bring ing it to you. Tuns are rotting on of fruit now the We have all we want kind for going after of every it, and many kets sent us. I as we Apples of all have them:— varieties, peaches, plums, they call them plums but they look like the fruit of the egg plant as goose eggs and big as ddieious prunes, figs, apricots, pears, grapes, black-berries, rasp-berries straw-berries etc., etc.... We arc living on fruit, sweet pota toes and coffee mostly. Melons of all kinds are abundant, ao with all kinds of vegetables—potatoes, cabbage, onions tomatoes, etc., better and bigger than I ever saw before. We can live about twice as well for one-half the money as in Austin: No body seems concerned about "making a living." "The living," seems a sure thing in this spontaneous land. Men arc trying to get rich and others take life easy. Wheat is perfectly white, wo have the nicest flour and whitest bread I ever saw, no rain falls on the grain at all. The harvest is cut just as men feel like it. They seem to be harvest ing all summer, so they keep plowing and sowing all winter, everything is net crowded into a few weeks here. NJV ture seems to wait on man and coax him to work in this latitude, instead of putting on the lash and driving him as in Minn. They use machinery to per fection. They do all their threshing by steam and much of other work.— The Yankee seems to think that brains are worth more than mucle, and work only occasionally. They drive bar gains &c. The Spanish are too lazy-to work, tho miner too wild and John Chi naman seems to be destined to take, the place of the proud Yankee and lazy Spaniard and the wild mustang as the laborers of this land. John is quiet, honest, genteel, industrious, do cile and clcan. They dress neatly even at work they look like the waiters in a first class hotel tho boys plague them, and pull their pig tails Ac., so that most of then! tie them up and put them under their- hats. We have a good house and ten rooms about an acre of ground, fruit and flow ers and cistern well and fine fountains VOL 2. AUSTIN, MOWER COUNTY, MINN., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER231869.

The Winona green house would not compare with our front yard, some of these little plants kept in a cigar-box ave too large here for the entire building, all grow out of doors, on high trellis, or climb the verandas and cov er tho roof of the houses end creep in to tlic bed room window: and twine themselves around the posts so that tliey fall upon the face at night and steal a kiss from the sleeper. *.
