THB 8T. CLOUD VISITER.
JANE O. SWISSHELM, EDI^B. Thursday, May 20,1858. Tht Visiter. Our Prospectus will be found on 1,' Heur third page, and we ask the friends of the freedom of the press and of the principles there laid down, to aid us in maintaining them. We feel that in our advocacy of them in St. Cloud we have been milder and more conservative than we have ever before been in our character of writer for the Press. We feel, that except our large share of human weakness, our life here has been such as to give no just cause of offence to any. Coming here as we did, with health completely broken and a heart very much in the same condition, having resigned our claim, not only to all our legal rights as a wife, but even to a great portion of our seperate estate, that wc might find, in the evening of life, the blessings denied to its meredian, viz.:— peace and freedom to worship God—we earnestly desired to live peaceably with all men. We came to this place because our only living relatives, a sister and her fami ly were settled here, and we could have the care and sympathy which our broken for tunes and broken constitution required.— Wc had taken as it were forcible possession of our only child, and had become solely responsible for her support, so that we had the strongest possible motives for conser vatism, and in all personal matters we have endeavored to conciliate but our political principles are a part of ourself, and we have no more power to change or conceal Wc are so certain the Lord is on our side, that it is quite impossible for us to fear any force on earth. Dying is not dif ficult, yielding impossible. We have not acquits us of having used it otherwise than in the service of God and man. It is thus wc still hope to use it, and not to gratify any feeling of revenge against those who have sought our injury with such singular pertinacity and despe-ration. We shall make no personal war upon We look upon all politicians, whether in office or out, as fair subjects of editorial comment in all their political relations.— Wc do not recognize any man's right to privacy in any attempt to govern the peo ple. We never kept a political secret and think we never will. The people are the proper source of political power, and have a right to know all the purposes and plans of those who dispense power and patronage. Whenever we can trace a po litical wire up to the handle, we shall di rect public attention to that point, no mat ter where it is, or what is likely to be the consequence. We believe this is a duty which every editor owes the public, and wc shall have to get*!n a new supply of cowardice before we shrink from it. To those who feel that these, pur purpo ses, arc right, we appeal for aid in carrying them out. The difficulties with which we have to contend are very great majority of the people of St. Cloud show the best disposition to aid and sustain us, but in addition to the general commercial crash, this county has had to contend with by the devastation of grasshoppers. Our enemies have, shown themselves un scrupulous and active. Their written threats, of more serious violence, stand un cancelled, while their private efforts to in jure our reputation, to cover our name with most odious epithets, and gross crimes, are still actively pursued. We are without prisons, or regularly organised judiciary, and those who take the responsibility of them, than to alter the color of our eyes.! ced his intention, in the Senate, to offer an Maybe we area fanatic but no convic- amendment making Brcckenridge the east £ion could be stronger in our mind, than ern terminus of the Pacific read. This is the feeling that the Lord has prepared us, a movement in the right direction. Min by along course of discipline, to stand pub licly as the advocate of the oppressed of our own sex, as a representative of womans' right, under God, to choose her own sphere of action. We have chosen ours with di rect reference to the final account, and those who make it the subject of sarcasm, ridicule, or coarse personal abuse, may cal-. culate to meet all that is terrible in ear nestness of purpose. as a command from the Great Master to go is the right plan, and one which could to work in His vineyard.

A gang of men, calculate the cost of supplying territory and munitions for the war that will surely ensue.

We are not wont to make pitiful appeals for help, but we should be recreant to duty now, not to state the facts, that those who love the American principles of freedom of speech and freedom of the press, may know that here, in this nominally free State, it is in danger of being crushed.— The Visiter is no longer a local organ, although we shall make it a prominent ob ject to make known the resources of north ern Minnesota but the great object of its worth of their money. The people of St. Cloud have acted nobly their part in this matter, and to the friends of truth and justice abroad, we now appeal to aid us in our struggle for the right. Pacific Railroad. Mr. Doolittle, of Wisconsin, has announ- nesota will soon make a road from St. Paul to Breckenridge, which is on the line be tween this State and Dacotah Territory, and will be the principal point at which emigrants to that Territory will find their veyed by Gov.

Early in the spring of '57 the young brood came out and made such havoc that serious fears of famine were entertained by a large portion of the people but they left in July, and so many of the late crops survived, that with the full crops of particular places, where they didnot appear, there was a large amount of food.

We have no grasshoppers in this region and no longer any fear of them. Seed Grain and Crops. Henry Swisshelm was sent down the river by a company of the citizens of St. Cloud to procure seed grain to be sold on credit to such persons as have not the means of purchasing for cash. The general destruction of crops for the two past years has made this very impor tant and we are glad to say that he has succeeded, that the grain is here and is in rapid course of distribution. It came late owingJto a failure in a preceeding ef fort but it is said to be in time to have all reasonable hope of a crop. The weath er has been chill and vegetation is in a backward state, all but winter wheat and rye which are in most flourishing condition. Almost the entire population of this coun ty,is farming. Men, women, and ehildren, are fencing hoeing, digging or putting in seed and we have every prospect. of an amount of eatibles that will be rather sur prising. There is no danger of there being too much and we hope our people will plow and plant, plant and plow, and make fence and kill ground squirrels, kill ground Religious.
