It should also be borne in mind that
while the general government grants alter

the eons rue: ion ot railroads, it at the same
time raise ■> the minimum price for which
the rein aming sections can be bought at

without such grant. In other words, the
remaining sections are sold fjr precisely

shift tune. Ine settlers therefore upon
the even —or government—sections will
pay to the government the full amount fur j
which the entire tract would have been'

road purposes. Thus it is the settlers

The Prayer of Our People.
The people of Nort lent Wisconsin —for
the following reasons, pray for renewal ot
the St. Croix & Lake Snpeiior Land Grant.
That the extension being given, they will
build 1 ;c railroads within tin- period limited,
and observe all the conditions. That the
justice of the government will thus be re
paid promptly and without default.
That the lands granted will come back,
|lu dollars, by sale of those remaining to
acl lal settlers at double price, in pertha
n t revenue by throwing them into the
ma-s of private property.
That the iron, reduced upon the spot,
'.} \y be carried with least cost to consum
ers, now counted by millions.
That the bre ulstuffs of the West and
South may exchange for our mineral and
wood, for manufactures, and for the
(products and merchandise of the lakes.
That inland towns and cities may spring
p with their civilizing eflVcts, and cultiva
ted fields supplant the forests.
1 Tf-t communications from center to cir
euiutereiiee of our Stale may be enabled,
in 1 a circulation established between its
heart, apd extremities.
That tin* enterprise of surrounding Sates
'may be emulated am. (his section kept!
from disparagement when contrasted with!
their excelling thrift and energy.
That the inhabitants have steadfastly
held to this country upon the faith and]
promise of these roads, and their failure
will result in sore disappointment, injustice
and loss to multitudes.
That we ask not the creation ok anew,
but the renewal of an original land grant,
under which more than two hundred miles
of railway have been built, as would the
whole long since, bad not first a monetary,
and then a political crisis arrested the woik.
That the portion left to which time ap
plies, is that between he head of Missis
sippi navigation and Lake Superior, the'
connecting link and completion of the cir
cuit. which will supply the wants and de
ni funds ..herein referred to, and a thousand ,
other relative comforts and blessings.
And for these grounds and many more
akin, we do solemnly demand that the*
Grant be continued, so as to enable the
building of a railroad >o vital to the devel
opment of this portion of our State.
Natural History.
A lively spectacle is that of a full pack of
hounds at this season, upon the path of a
wounded stag, rending ihe sky with loud
clam-’i's, and stretching limb and lungs, to
bring to bay the antlered monarch ol the
forest, that the huntsman may come up and
deal the final coup tie grace. How ail the
arts of venery, all the feats of vaulting and
tumbling, sheering and doubling tacking
and turning, are put in play by the hot
pursuers It may be that the noble animal,
stricken to the heart by a bullet, will tall,
and it may be too, that he will turn and
rend his enemies, and live full many a day
to browse on the green herbage.
That the pack is in the field, figuratively,
in full cry upon the track of a measure now
penfling in congress—the St. Croix land
grant extension —is evident by the noise
from the other side of the bay. The won
der is that the} should have stopped their
antics and quarrels at home long enough to
join iu a common hue and cry. But this is
not without precedent in the history of the!
species, when the business is to track com
mon game.
It is refreshing, however, that the hawks
commiserate and chatter ove; their quarrv;
that the wolve indulge in certain philo
sophii a! and eh >ri table r flections upon the
excellence of the service tfey are about to
perform in this oiisl night upon the fold,
this lute i yen lion to piotect the sheep (that

to the four footed creation those moral.sen
timent.-, and affections, of which bipeds
have always before claimed the solo posses
sion ? To be sure, we have suspected that
instinct, somehow akin to intellect, had
leen given to tho hover orders, as also a
■ |vtain craft and cunning, but that benevo
; nice, tender considc-atsuii and care should
'bo found there, suffuses the eyes with grat- j
itude for the “ways that arc dark" in the ;
animal world.
Wli.it lainv illations proceeding from “de
hills” are made over “the pcop’e of the re
“gion that liave been deladi and with prom
ises unfulfilled, and lies that have brought
“no fruit except barrenness and desolation,
“Dead Sea apples and ashes, —the people
“that sit shivering in the outer cold and
“darkness, —in the shadow of a gigantic
“fraud, etc., & c.
Of a truth the old prophetic rage of lone
creatures in caves, bare except as to their
loins, and cut with edge 1 stones, feigns to
be simulated in these strains.
but ifyou will lay your oar to the bare rock,
and by the still water, you may catch the
key note to such rhapsodies, in the last
line of the precious 'petition, set as a jewel
in the leading columns of the Miunesotiau,
which is made to read, “So as to* give a
“preference in the sale ofpine timber lands
“to residents actually engaged in the lum
“ber business.” We believe that the tri
pod# of the Minnesotian oracle, not long
since, rested for a white over the 'seat of
the lumber business aforesaid, down on the
St Croix, and there got a puff of the di
vine S'kTktw.' tiLien impelled ‘these Oassan
drian giving' out, about the “country b(
‘ great capabilities'as a wilderness and a
“ desolation.”
Does it occur that tlie'peoplo who take!
annually, 200,000,000 feet of pine from
this wilderness would rather it should
remain so, seven or eight years longer, un
til the whole district, railroad lands and
all, is ravished ol limber? Do we not
know that the petition over which so
much pow-wow is made, originated two
years ago. in the State of Minnesota, and
in the interest of the lumber oligarchs prin
cipally settled in and about Stil;water, and
that its putative signatures, if any at all,
were those of their floating employees, in
the pine woods along the land grants, and
the people ot Northern Wisconsin
who own and cultivate the soil ol their
homes ?
There teas a petition addressed a twelve
monthsince to congress, signed by every,
body up and down these roads, earnestly
praying the extension of their land grants,
in which the whole Stale of Wisconsin
united jn effect, by mentor: and of the legis
lature —but no comment or note of this, is
made by the confederated worthies of the
Tribune and Miunesolian ; Oh no, that
would be fair and ingenuous—“a trick that
is vain,” when artifice and misstatement
are the hadii g suits in their game.
Nor would it do to tell what is the truth,
j that the passage of the Lake Sup. & Miss,
laud grant in 18(34 was principally due to
the labors at Washington ot Superior City
people, who animated by a public spirit,
bvOfid enough to comprehend the whole re
gion and discarding Stale lines and sec
tional selfishness, advocated and carried
mainly that grant, upon the credit of which
the road to Duluth ha- been built. With
out their assistance it could not have been
enacted.
Gratitude is not expected or a-ked in
I return, but the willful suppression of tacts
is simply observed as an instance of fraud
and wrong which some men are willing to
impose upon their own souls.
We perfectly understand all about the
cant of “fraud,” “speculation,” “swind
ling combination of speculators and bank
ers 1 ami so forth , all about the pretended
I zeal for the welfare of Wisconsin people,
and the thin gloss of disinterested concern
Iqi* the right disposition *4 the public lands,
and we note the serene mo lolly counsels
concerning what should be done by Con
gress in these matters. Kvery child under
