A LETTER FROM
PROFESSOR G. H. WILKES.
Ann Arbor, Mich., Oct 80, 1805.
Editor Expkess: ... ,
Your valuable paper lias now secured
chosen route of travel, and finds its
way regularly every Tuesday mornln g
to my door; so If I may be permitted a
small space In its valuable columns, at
my leisure moments, I will drop your
a few notes from the state between
the lakes. ;
In the five month which have
elapsed since I took my departure
from your pleasant city, I have passed
through and seen much of the beauti
ful country aud scenery which now
lies between us, in the open plains,
the ragged mountains, and the crow
ded bustling cities. The most rugged
scenery lies in the "Rockies," . the
greatest plain Is that of the Mississippi
valley and the greatest cltv is Chicago.
To picture any one of these would
be a great feature lu itself, too large to
he attempted in a short news paper
letter. And again, let them be written
up aa they wilt, I am Inclined to the
belief, that their subllmest granderer
and stirring inspiration is to be felt
only by seeing them. No pen will
paint that broken ridge, or that vast
and sweeping plain so clearly that
they can be comprehended as they
are. And the heigh ts, the depths, and
the indeterminable turmoil embodied
in a city of oue and one half millions
of people, furnish startling features of
astonishment of every order, only 'to
be comprehended when seen. -- ,
Leaving then these featurse with no
more remarks, I will give you a brie
description of tbis section of Michigan,
Ann Arbor, and the great university
The state; -oMJtthigarl lying as. It
does between the lakes, and in the
ages past having been traversed
by glaciers from the North is low, yet
somewhat nlliug so far aa I have
seen. There are frequent large ponds
ana swamps, with thickets of Umber
and collections of rocks or large bowl'
iters. These rocks seem to be mostly
granite and are the deposits of the
terminal moraiues of the glacial epoch.
The granite of course is a valuable
building stone but the method of
breaking and fashloulug it for build'
lug, (as it is usualy round or similar
torriautlain bowlder,) looks odd to
one accustomed to the working f
limestone or some other et rulirie i
rock, fhe principal and almost so)
tool used in shaping it is a heavy
aledge hammer. There seems to be u
psrticular grain to the stone aud it
breaks directly forward from the face
of a V shaped sledge, though on a
large stone it take perseveranoe I'
break it: for instance I stood the other
day and watched a workman hammer
for about flfteu minutes lu the same
pbiee to break a stone once, Au evi
dent example that perseverance wins.
The commonest varieties of trees are
maple, hickory, oak, walnut, fir etc
The city of Ann Arbor is situated on
both banks of the Huron River on the
Michigan Central railroad and thirty-
eight miles west front Detroit. Ills
situ Ued on rolling ground, aud has
many nice driveways and shaded
walks. The population Is cluuied to
be from twelve to fifteen thousand
the latter number wheu the university
is lu session.
The city has the reputatiou of being
one of the classic cities of the United
States. The educational interests are
lealously guarded and every effort for
educatlontal prpgress receives a
prompt aud hearty welcome.
Tue State University lu ltsell is a
great Institution with the growth of
almost half a century, The campus Is
laid out lu tlte southeast part of the
city proper; It is iu the fortp of a euuare
aud covers forty acres, containing
fifteen large aud cxpeuslve buildings.
Almost every branch of learning is
here taught, largely by meu of na
tional and world wide reputatiou.
There are the special departments of
literature, medicine, denterstry, civil
engineering, electrical engineering
and law, and the total enrollment of
studeuta is about 3,000 at the present
Iu the department of lew we have
about 650 student. Tins year the
law course baa boeu exteutcd to three
years, formerly It has been but two
years, cousequenUy the secoud year
elsaa la mul, only dontaltiLig as It
diws men who had anuis buoWdge of
tlieyllrtt year. In the senior dill's
lucre ia now about 800 members, the f
second year class thirty arid the nin!
ar The law students come from
u I states of the Union, Europe, Japan
ulj lic Wumla of the sca. . We have
nit Japanese, some men from the
Hnfaliun Iflaudu and live ladies in

geatftuient. . ri" ;
Oa gou is represented by about five
fiuiR'nts I believe, two of them only
btinj hi the first year class. ' One
young niati flora La Grand, aud my
self, being the only man. from the
Willamette valley this year. Though
Id tin senior class I have been pleased
li uuycl my friend Mr. Harris,from Eu

and her University I will consider the
Jellminaries outlined and In my

university piece by piece.
