The Northern Pacific Hailroad.
From the X Y. Tribune of October 2Uli.
It is announced that by the mid
dle of November this road will be
completed to the Missouri lliver,
452 miles west of Duluth. This
will be an addition of 200 miles to
the i astern section since spring.
Trains have been running dai'lv
between Duluth ami Pcd I'iver
since April last, and new rolling
stock is ready to equip the exten
sion. On th Pacific side, in Washing
ton Territory, a section of 25 miles
has been for some time in opera
lion. Forty miles more of tract
will be completed before the close
of the season. Addit.'r the com
pleted portion on th; Pacific side
to the eastern section, it gives a
total ot5! 7 miles of tract laid in
little more than two years from
the commencement of the work.
When the delays encountered the
first year in making the surveys
and deciding on the best line are
considered, t he.result is marvellous,
and attests the energy with which
the work is pushed forward.
Pesides the actual construction,
the work of surveying and locating
the entire leiigt h across the conti
nent has proceeded with vigor.
The exploring parties have fought
a few scattering Indians, but have
carried their surveys successfully
to the Yellowstone. The portion
of the road now in operation has
a large and increasing local iraHie.
It intersects the Pcd Piver at
JMoorhead, and from Olydon, elev
en miles east of lied Piver, a new
railroad is being const rnctcd. north
ward down the valley to Pembina,
where it will meet and join a line
soon to be built southward from
Port Garry. It commands the
eastern-bound freight and travel o!
the Prilish set t lenient s in Manit oba,
and also of the Hudson's Bay Com
pany. It will alo be the outlet of
a large portion of the grain grown
in western Minnesota.
When the contracts for this sea
son are completed, the company
will have a permanent business in
the great tr.-tllic of the Upper Mis
souri Piver, wit hall the govern
ment transportation of the North
west. A few mi!, s beyond the
point where the rail way st tikes the
Missouri, the river bends to the
westward, and is navigable for
steamboats for 1,000 miles ol' water
way from the railroad crossing to
Foil lienlon, at the foot of the
Pocky Mountains, in Western Mon
tana. Nearly forty steamers have been
employed during a single season
in the trade o these upper waters.
In April next, at the opening of
navigation, there will be direct
communication east, and west by
rail and river, from Lake Superior,
in longitude 02 degrees, to the pop
ulous districts in Western Montana,
in longitude 110 degrees. From
this point westwatd it is about four
hundred miles thlntigh the passes
of the Pocky Mountains to that
portion of the Columbia Piver
whence it is navigable to the Pa
cific. The finished sections of the road
entitle the company to about Ten
Millions acres of land, granted by
the government, constituting an
area about twice the extent ol New
Jersey. Ten million contiguous
acres belonging to the government
are at the same time rendered hab
itable and saleable. The lands are
situated on either side of I he line,
and principally consist of excellent
farming land, with the productive
soil characteristic of much of the
prairie region. The company has
already begun the cancellation of
its seven-thirty fir-t mortgage
bonds by the proceeds of its sales
of land, and is accomp'ishing its
great wotk with success ami econ
omy. There is a prospect of a large
emigration of the tenant farmer
class from England in the spring.
One colony alone, recently formed
there, through its pioneer agents
secured a track in Clay county,
Minnesota, of 185,000 ac res direct
ly on the line of railway. The
intended settlement is to be named
Yeovil, alter a town in the West of
England, whence the majority of
the colonists will come.
The bureau having in charge the
Land Department of the road has
built and furnished convenient reception-houses
for the free accomo
dation of intending setthrs and
their families while engaged in se
lecting their farms. One of these
is at Duluth, another al Praim-rd,
where the road crosses the Missis
sippi, and a third al Glydon, iuihe
lied Piver Valley. Emigrants
used to trundle with their ox-carts
over forlorn and desolate prairies,
and bivouac where the night found
them. It is quite different now.
They are carried in comfort to the
verv sites of their future homes
and" the organization of the system
is such that they ate protected
from imposition or spoliation from
the time they leave their old homes
across the water till they begin the
foundation of their new ones under
the sunset. Every able-bodied and
industrious man and woman who
comes hither makes the nation
richer and contributes to the gener
al prosperity, and in this view
the condition and prospects of the
road are a source of legitimate
congratulation. Arrangements are
making for pushing construction
east and west during 1S73.
To us there does not exist a
doubt but Oregon will take the
lead, on this coast, in agricult ami
pursuits when the size of the State
is taken into consideration. The
climate is different in Eastern,
I Western and Southern Otegon, ad
mitting of a great variety of pro
ductions, for a hat cannot be grown
in oiih section can with profit hi an
other. Eastern Oregon is subject
to drouths and, excepting on the
lowlands, crops cannot be looked
for with certainty but then, if we
are correctly informed, a large
proportion can be irrigated, and
heavy crops made the certain re
sult as the soil, from past exper
ience, has been proven very rich
and prolific. In We stern Oregon
so nir as we are ante to learn
good excuse can be offered whv a

John Aehims was a lawyer, and

relation tei the Adamses. The
name belongs properly to another
great American family elescetided
from an ancestor who was in the
battle of Hastings, .. D. 1000.
Thomas Je'ffe-rseiu was a lawyer,
and his family lie-Id a good, but not
high social rank in Virginia. His
attention was attracted tei public
life by the struggle between the
Colonies ami Englaml, ending in
the Pe-vo!ution, and he made for

of a Virginia planter, and eelucat

Put the public troubles drew him
into political life i.n early youth,
and he serve-el with hemeir in the
army and in civil pursuits. He
had a large experience in politics,
and a thorough training in states
manship. John Quiney Aelams was the
e-hb st sem of John Adams ami a
lawyer; but his life was devoted
to public service, with a few inter
ludes given to literary pursuits.
He was eelucated for statesman
ship by his parents, ami had a
larger and more varicel experience
in public life than any other Presi
dent. Andrew Jackson came from a
poeir Southern family, ami began
the practice of law at inanhooel.
He was afterward a-judge, a mer

served in both Houses of Congress
before he was made President.

The following essay on dogs was
wrilte-n by a small Nesv England
boy this Summer:
As this is the tail of a dog, it
may lie inferred that every dog has
a tail, and that every tail has a dog.
I have seen a dog's tail run over
two feet, but the tale of a dog can
run any length, and two feet always
ran uneler the tail. As every log
has its tail and every tail its dog,
sej also has every tail its wag ami
every wag its tale; a dog ran wag
his tail one flay out of two. but a
wag can tell his tale eight days out
of the week, making a total elifiVr
ence between the wag of a tail ami
the tale of a wag of two elavs sev
en wags and a tail. Mr. Shak
speare (late of England) says that
every deig has his day, but it can
also be said that every day has its
log, so that we have day-dogs and
elog-ilays ehg-ilays are twenty
four hours long without the tail, but
lay-dog's and watch-elogs run t
any length if they are neit chained.
A watch-elog em land is the same as
watch-dog on boanl ship; but they
are entirely different frenn dogging
a man's watch ami watching a
man's el og! I have often seen star
fish, but I never heard of a star-ehig,
although astronomers h say that
there is. a dog star, and that by
falling down over a elog you can
see stars; but this double visieni
decs not effect the measurement of
a deig; he contains just eight feet,
twei lore ami two hind. There are
many ways in which this dog's tail
could be drawn out, but a good
healthy dog's tail shonhl not be
over six inches long.
A Nor.i.K Youth Who Couldn't

Men Who Win Women. God
has se made the sexes that women,
like children, cling to men lean
iipem them as though they were
superior in mind and body. They
make them the suns of their sys
tems, and their children revolve
around them. Men are gods, if
thy but knew it, ami women burn
incense at I lu-ir shrines. Women,
therefore who have gooel minds
ami pure hearts want men tei lean
upon. Think of their reverencing
a drunkard, a liar or a libcrtim.
If a man would have a woman elo
him homage, he must be manly in
every se-nse-; a true gentleman, mit
after the Chesterfield se-heieil but
polite-, because his he-art is full of

South Carolina's Troubles
USING FOCR HUNDRED BLANK "W A II-
II A NTS THE INHUMANITY OF A
UNITED STATES MARSHAL.
From the Cidunihia Carolinian.
From private resources we learn
that the whilom henchman of P.
Iv. Scotts, vhoe chief achieve
ment as State Constable was his
successful capture of his salary and
contingent fund, ami who, since his
appointment as Mr. Wallace's chief
deputy, has been singularly quiet,
is now on the war-path, ami with a
corps of equally brave assistants,
is striking terror into the hearts of
the women ami chihlren of Lau
rens county by the arrest of their
husbands and lathers, the devoted
victims of the Ku-Klux acts.
Many arrests have been maile, and
the jail at Laurensville is represent
ed as full of men who have been
taken from their avocations by
these men under the authority of
warrants, onie, if not ail, of which
have been in the Marshal's hands
for nearly two years.
The chief significance of these
arrests appears from the fact that
there is money in them for tho
marshals and Uniteel States Attor
neys, and is also believed to give
these mercenaries favor in the eyes
of the king. It matters liltle who
are anested on the lour hunelred
warrants which they say they hohl,
so that they bring that number of
white cit izens tei t lie judicial mill of
Juelge Bond, and subject them to
the process of grinding ami toll.
From the Laurensville (.V. C.) Herald.
A melancholly circumstance in
connectiem with the recent death
of Mr. James Copelaud and wife,
mentioned elsewhere, is as follows:
While Mrs. Copelaud was dying,
a United States Marshal went to
the house of Mr. C. ti arrest him.
He was not takem away, however,
at the lime, and a second visit was
made for a similar purpose. In
the meantime Mrs. C. had dieel,
and the said officer found Mr.
Copelaml himself, on his secoml
visit in a dying condition. Death
soen relieved the sufferer of all his
troubles. Thus we see that not
even the couch of the dying isany
bar to the "reel right hand hand of
the law" ami greedy cormorants of
Governme nt pap.
It wouhl seem, from the deliber
ate manner wilh which the arrest
ing of citizens began, ami is being
persisted in, that another reign of
terror in this county has been at
tempteel. It is a painful fact to
realize that the strong arm of the
Government should be nsel thus
that the very power which ought
to protect its people lends its aiil
to such diabolical Tyranny.
Where or when this thing of har
assing ami torturing innocent citi
zens to gratify the whims and ca
prices of a few will end no one can
tell. There seems to be a kind of
personal spleen, the bitterest ani
meisities to gratify. The smallest
personal dislike, or the most triv
ial quarrel is magnitieel into a
grave offense against the United
States, ami the unfortunate victim
is thrown into prison. The thirst
for revenge seems insatiable.
A Father's Advice to a Uriel c.
Said a young husband whose
business speciilat ions were unsuc
cessful: "My wife's silver tva set,
the bridal gift of a rich uncle,
eloomed me to financial rjiin. It
involved a humlred unexpecteel ex
penses, which, in t;ying to meet,
have made me the bankrupt that I
am." His experience is the ex
perience of many others, who, less
wise, elo not know what is the gob
lin of the house, working its de
strucliem. A sagacious father, of
great wealth, exceedingly morli
fieel his daughter by ordering it to
be printeel on her weehliug cards,
"Nei presents except those adapted
to an income eif 1,000." Said he:
"You must not expect to begin life
in the style 1 am able after many
years of labor, to indulge; and I
knejw of nothing which will tempt
you to try more than the we-ll in-tenlieinc-el
but pernicious gifts of
rich friends." Such 'advice is
timely. If other parents would
feilhiw the same plan, many young
men. would be spared years of in-e-essant
toil ami anxiety ; they
wouhl neit fine! themselves on the
elownwarel retail, because their
wives had worn all of their salary,
or expeneleil it on the appoint
ments of the house. The fate of
the poor man who found a lynch
j.in, and felt himself obliged to
make a carriage to fit it, is the fate
it the husband who finds his brnlc
in possession of geihl and silver
valuables, and no large income to
support the owner's gold and silver

man as he staggered home from a
supper party, "how evil communi
