Miss Bishop, who came to St. Pan n 1847, alluding to the embryo sity at this early day, writes: "It must be iorne in mind that St. Paul was a small tr.ul- Dg post giving yet no si^'ii of it- unprce leuted growth. The council tires of the red nen were but just extinguished on thi tide and were .still brightly blazing on the Test of the river. Our village was almost laily thronged with Indians, where they fre [uently encamped in larger numb rs than he entire adult male population Of the terri .ory. Tragic scenes were often enacted by hem when intoxicated and provoked by fraud practiced upon them by unprincipled ivhisky sellers.*' These Indian continued :o dance and to beg about the city up to, and ucludiug the year 18 JOHN" DOBNBT. At the tir.-t election ever held iv St. Paul, (says Mr. Folsom,) in the year 1847,forty nine votes were ea>t, and one of the judges of the election, after announcing the i stated that John Dobney had received the full number, and was duly chosen. As some of the judges were Bomewbat Bet up by copi ous drinks of water from the Mississippi river, they wanted to know who this John Dobney was, when the aforesaid judge eon ducted them to a closet nearby, and point Ing said: "There he is." which proved to be a demijohn filled with whisky. In those days such candidates invariably received the full number of votes, aud of course were al ways elected. TUB FIRST AN'I) OLDEST SI '.DAY SCHOOL IN MINNESOTA. On the 25th of July, i^!7, thirty-seven years ago, Miss Harriet E. Bishop opened a Sunday school in a lou, house, corner of Third and St. Peter Btreets, udh .-.even scholars. They were from parents of all nationalities, and great Bkill was required by the then young and Inexperienced but perserving teacher, to make them comprehend her meaning; but she succeeded admirably, and finally had twenty-five children about her. The school was continued several years and Increased in numbers, and at last became connected with the First Baptist church of this city. Miss Bishop died In 1883, ami a biographical sketch of her life appeared in Article Five. SIMEON P. lolsoM. Mr. Folsom was born In lower Canada in Ist'.i, and is consequently 65 years old, which will greatly surprise most of his inti mate friends, who presumed him to be a man not much more than 50 years, lie studied and practiced hnr, and then took op tb ■ pro fessiOn of civil engineering. He left his home in 1839, and came to St. Paul in I s IT. or 37 years ago. lb- early enlisted in the, Mexican war, as did Edmund Rice and M. N. Kellogg, and also served in the Union army for a term of three years during the war of the rebellion. He was also on the .staff of Major-General Bodfish, in 1839, ranking as major, and In l s."ii-:i was clerk in the legislature. He was also the : surveyor of St. Paul, in Is:,!, and has I < n a continuous resident of St. Paul, or near to It, and Identified with her Interests, for ;si' years. A CANOE RIDE OV 300 MII.ES. In IM2 Mr. Folsom, having been appointed by the United States gov ernment to take t!ie cei,-us in this then almost unknown region, and having per formed his duties, purchased a birch bark canoe of the Indian-, and alone, started on a voyage, from Menominee, down the Chippe wa river to the Mississippi, and from tie nee to Prairie duChien, a distance of 300mOes. He mad.' a Bail out of one of bis undergarments, and thus floated on the broad bosom of the great river, sometimes stopping with fur traders, sometimes with Indian-, and ime times alone. Then there were no farm,-, uo Villages, no towns, no cities, and very few whites. He came west when nineteen years old, and has lived to see wonderful changes. He speaks of visitinlt the old government mill, near where Minneapolis now stands, and between the mill and Fort Snelling, on a wide stretch of prairie land, stood a loin tree, and beneath this lone tree the sentini I soldier would sit at noon day to shield him self from the hot rays of the sun. When that lone tree then stood, Is now a bustling city. PERSONAL. Mr. Folsom is a man of a great deal of in telllgence and has led an active, busy life, We remember him in the palmy days of reii estate, when he dealt in broad acres an drove about the city as a nabob; then we re member him again, not so rich; in pooi health, ready and expecting to die any mm ute, and yet he has outlived a large numbei of his old friends, and is as active as a kit ten. Very few- men know more about rea estate in and about St. Paul, than Folsom He has surveyed it; he has owned it; he hat sold it. He has been on the top-most rounc of the ladder, and at the bottom, and jus now he is in the middle of the ladder of life and is as tenacious as an old hickory tree He la social, kind hearted, generous; has an excellent memory, and delights to revel in the incidents of the past. Withal, he has : vein of humor in his composition, whicl makes him popular as a companion and likec as a man. Mr. Folsom is in the best ol health, and looks younger than he did twenty years ago. TUE FIKST COOPER —CHARLES T. ROULEAU SENIOR. Mr. Rouleau was born in [Canada in 1807 and is consequently seventy-five years old He came west in 1829, or lifty-live year ago, and was in the employ of the America: Fur company for nine years, or three terms was mail carrier from Point Douglas to Tay lor's Falls in 1844; lived at St. Cnix an removed to St. Paul in 1845. HI family consisted of fourteen chil dren, eight of whom are Btill living A carpenter by trade, he was the fir in the city; made casks for tb:- governmi a hewed the logs for the first hotel—"The 81 Paul House," —later worked for the Lam Brothers, but is now livinsr upon the weig! of his years. He also built the firat fen boat at Anoka, and slsol ■ house I Fort Snelling; made the £r.-t barrels in th state, and labored in the s u w mill of John i Prince. He now resides with a rnarrie daughter, in an humble dwelling in tb Sixth ward, or West St. Paul. PERSONAL MENTION. We visited Mr. Rouleau on Wednesda last.

He was offered another seventj I Ing, for $45, but Larpenteur was too shrewd a man to Idad bimsi If down with real estate at ruinous prices, and so di clined tha offer. In lv.V he concluded to build on this 1 it, so timber was pn cured ..
