EDITOR JOHNM-.—-If farming was to be
our occupation in the future, give me. the
climate and soil of Minnesota. Winter here
does not "linger in the lap of spring"—
not very long, he don't. When she give*
him notice to quit, he gathers up bis

and Middle States are in this respect sad
ly at a discount One week is sufficient
for the transit from the sleigh to the plow.
Rut it seems that each returning spring is
an improvement on its predecessor. Seed
ing commenced one week earlier this
spring than last, and that was ten days
ahead of the year preceding. When I was
somewhat younger than I am now, farmers
in Central New York commenced plowing,
one year, the first week In April, and it was
considered by all something icmarkable.
Probably it is a rare thing with them now,
and I suppose it will be difficult to make
them believe that up in this high latitude it
is a common occurrence. Thefirstweek in
April found as seeding and since that time
warm weather has continued with scarcely
any abatement, and the weather at present
writing is such that crops are growing as
if by magio. I predict a bountiful yield of
all kinds of grain in this section the present
season. It used to be fashionable to plant
corn in the States below us about the tenth
of May, but here I think we can change
the programme some. We have corn in
our garden that is four inches high, planted
the 10th of April, and I see no reason why
field corn could not hate "attained the same
height if planted at the same time. I sup
pose the chap that you saw turning up that
"plank road" soil in Pennsylvania will
hardly credit this, but if he or anysehoolhouse
one else in that yellow-clay region had
some of our warm mellow soil to cultivate,
they would open their eyes (if not their
mouths) with astonishment to see things
Having written thus much about the
bright side of Minnesota,., let me touch a
little on, not the dark, but the windy side.
This country is some on wind you know
(saying nothing about its writers,) and is
celebrated for its bracing atmosphere but
I think Tuesday night last was a little
more bracing thannecessary far the nerves.
For two days the wind had blown fresh
and strong from the south, and towards
sundown it was difficult for pedestrians to
hold on to mother earth.
Prophets said that the wind would change
when the sun went down. And so it did
—from a stiff breeze to a perfect gale,
and by ten o'clock personal property of
various kinds began to fly. Buildings trem
bled in every joint. Upper rooms were at
a discount. Basements were much sought
after, and rumor has it that nine-tenths
of the inhabitants on the prairies found
lodgiDgs for the night under ground. One
woman with whom the writer is pretty
well acquainted declined to go below. She
was the only person, so far as I can learn,
in town that stood at her post during that
fearful night. At daylight people began
to emerge from their subterranean abodes,
each one expecting to tee his neighbors
houseless. But only two houses were un
roofed, that I have heard of those ere in
the adjoining towns. Tho result of the
gale is as follows All the small buildings
and miles of fences are laid low doors
burst from their fastenings windows
smashed, and people badly frightened,
but nobody hurt. One thing is certain,
however, that if the heavy editor of THX
JOURNAL had been traveling over our prai
rie at that time, he would have found him
self in the vicinity of Hudson Bay in short
order. There is only one thing that would
have kept him down on terra firma—the

FROM FORI STEVENSON.
A Race from Indians.
FOBT STKVXXSOX, D. T., 1
May 8th, 1870.
EDITOR JOUBHAL.—On Monday last the
mail party for Fort Totten (composed of
a half-breed named George and Tom Crow
ly, accompanied by myself,) left this place,
all well armed and mounted. We had two
pack mules and a pack horse. We struck
off on the prairie, keeping well clear of the
track the whole way,- on account of the
bands of thieving Sioux. About noon on
Tuesday, when ascending a hill, George,
who rode in advance, suddenly wheeled
around and descended the hill^ stating that
there were some objects, about four miles
away, which looked eery much like buffa
lo. We made a detour around some ra
vines, and encamping in a hollow, proceed
ed to make our noon meal. George in ihe
meantime took a position on a hill to ob
serve the supposed buffalo, which had now
entirely disappeared. After about anhour
he came running down with word that
the objects were some 25 or 80 mounted
Sioux, who were making a detour-to at
tack our oamp. To saddle and be off did
not take many minutes, and then earn
menced a run which Lam likely to feel the
effects of for some days—galloping through
one ravine after another, and through
miry bottoms, until after some ten hours'
hard^riding we camped in a bottom until
nearly day, and arrived at this post at
noon on Thursday. x. w!
The half-breed George is certainly well
suited for the critical service he has to
perform. He thoroughly understand the
ways and signs of the Indians, and his
watchfulness this .time undoubtedly raved
the Port's mails, as well as our scalps.
