JiOCKi'OitT. July 20, '75. Ed. IvKruKLiCA:: Wishing to help along in eYerythiiig that may go to make an itfiu of pro lit able news for your excellent paper, I send you a lew notes, gathercsl by the way, in my trip Xorth west. Though it has been rather disagreeable at times, to drag along through rain and mud,and at other timci to haYe one's equili brium distmbed by the frantic roar ings and kicking? of a team, almost crazed by lhe tormenting f'ie.s, be sides being kept lmeasv by rheumatic jiaiiia shooting.evcrand auon.tiirough back and limbs, t t .-licit have been the attract ions otit.-ide, 1 could not sutler mye!f to ignore tlu surroiinu ings of nature. A few weeks ago. as you are aware, Savannah and the country round about. Ava.s one dreary vaste, so far :is vegettttion avjis concerned. Hut as 1 pa-sed along Ve.-tward and North ward through the country, it seemed more like Spring-time than Summer. The hedges, which had been robbed of thur foliage by 1 he r 'jmorseb s. "hopper," were now put ting on new robes richer ami-brighter than ever. The shrubbery ,the currant, the goose berry, and the grape virions well, which many supposed to be dead, seemed springing into new life. The gardens al-c, and the corn lieldsomc of which had been twice replanted, were so far advanced, bearing plants of rich color and rank growth, gave inspiration- of hope that, Avith a fa vorable season we should yet have an abundance and perhaps some t o spare. ost of ( lie corn fields- in Andrew county seem to have been replanted, except along the valley of the Noda way: some of these were exceedingly line. and the farmers could boast of feasting on roasting ears. Though the wheat and oats crops will be very light, yet tl-s heavy grasses, Hungar ian and Millet, much of which have been sown, will make up in part, for the loss of feed, so far as stock is con- I cerned. Even late oatsarc doing bet ter, by far, than was expected two Avceks ago. So, with a few more rains and with warm weather, An drew county will come out a:l right. After crossing the Nodaway river into Holt county, 1 Avas agreeably surprised: for, from reports, I had about come to the conclusion that tliev had lost evcrvi hing in that sec tion; but 1 found that the "hoppers" had dealt lightly with that portion, compared with other sections I have visited. The people in the northeast of Holt county and also in the South west of Nodaway countj', have no iteason to complain. The corn crop lor the most part is very promising that which has been replanted looks well and is growing rapidly. They too, can boast of better wheat and oats than Andrew county. In trav eling farther, north, through the wes tern portion of Nodaway county, and then passing over into Atchison count y, 1 saw no sign of grasshopper work, except now and then a great distance apart on some high prairie, which had been replanted, but which was growing so raphriy that a stran ger would hardly have known timt anything had befallen it. Wheat and oats seem to have been untouched ex cept in some places, where the chinch bug has left his mark. With regard to the great Maple, com, I mtit ac knowledge that in all my travels in this State for the last ten years, 1 have never seen the like before. .Farm ers tell me they are satisfied that many of the fields, now in roasting ears, will average seventy-live bush els to the acre. The yield alung the Little Tarkio and branches, and also along the Big Tarkio, to all appear ance, is likely to be enormous; indeed the eastern portion of Atchison conn- tv is till right for cr"o 'vcu the western portion around Kockport and along the bluifs, nearly till of which has been replanted, with a la vorable season will come out we!!. The potato crop in (hi- region is al so a success. Fine large one of the early sort are being used, and the crop will generally be good and the price low. 1 heard one farmer say he did not think they would be worth digging. Such is human nature, it is too much, or too little. Would that all could appreciate God's bounties, and in times of plenty be careful and provident against ihe day of want. If there is anything that will go beg ging for purchasers. J think it will be the turnip n-yp, for millions are now growing. Everything is now hope ful let the liu-bandman be encour aged. 1 predict however, that corn in the interior, away from the throng!', fa res, will be till of J5U cents per bu-hel in November next. ,Th;re litis been many more, and indeed heavier rains in Lhe-e northern coun-lie-, than in eit Iter Andrew or Hoi:: and the stench .along the streams and oversowed low lauds, i sometimes sickening, and the heat of lite sun sometimes creates a faint ness to the traveller, almost unendurable. Wo cannot hope for a change until the country becomes .-et tied, and t lie rank weeds and wild grasses become sub-. juj:aled by the plow .and domestic, crops; until indeed, the lowlands are drained and put under culture. One I thing particularly attracts the ail on-j tion of the traveller over these, north ern prairie, to-wit: The numerous herds of cattle, which seem to roam at will, for I found many of them wit-bout even a herdsman. Thou sands upon thousands of acres re hei'e open for grazing, between The waters of the "Nodaway and Hig Tar kio. The grass is now about a fool high, and coai se grass three to four feet high. 1 saw at least i'Mj cattle in sine herd, fat and sleek and wonder ed why Ave had to eat beef at home, tough and lean, at such high prices, liut these ranges are being narrowed down gradually. There have indeed been Avouderlid changes during the la-t three years. A sprightly popula tion is filling up the country, families of intelligence and refinement from Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and oilier Stales eat of tiie MisVis.-ippi are Hocking here, and little Avhit-j cottages are dot ling the prairie here and there, Avhere only a short time ago ay as one extended plain of Avild ness and loneliness. It is a pleasant thought a- one looks out. upon this vast range, and takes into view among these cottages, t lie school house, that, the rising nice has not been forgotten. And further, that in the lapse of time these fair lands, by the hand of industry and by the in telligence of nu enlightened people, shall be consecrated to purposes of oivil and social life, and in securing temporal good, contentment and do mestic happiness. All this sanctified by pure morality and religion, will make life itself in the fullest sense, an iiiA'aluable blessing. TRAVELED. A Terrible Cyclone. Cincinnati, July 30.

Still, however, we had no intention of making enemies needlessly. La-t Fall we favored the election of W.W. Pooher to the oOice of 'County Clerk.

So it seems the Avhole busi ness is to go over again. The public are tired of it, and it is not possible for the second trial to occupy that share of attention from the public as did the first. The Japanese are going ahead in the matter of constitutional govern ment.
