0 E ST CI.OUD E O A JANE Q. SWISSHELM. KDITOR Thursday Jun 14t I860. beward, we are willing to admit that the nomination of Lincoln is probably the best that cdultMiave been made under the circumstances. It is one of the worst features oi a Republican Government, that the men who have done the most to give tone and permanance to its institutions and whose genius commands respect and attention for it, from abroad, should be the first to suffer by its neglect. WM II. SEWAUD was a man of known and tried Statesmanship. He was the recognized leader of the Republican party. Whatever of strength or of prestige it may have acquired in its conflicts with the Slave Power, is due mainly to his talents. His friends saw this and the only wonder to them was, that the country did not see it too. For years he had expounded its principles. The leaders cf that party were accustomed to adopt his speeches as the standard of round Republican doctrines. He had nobly defended his country through its many perils.— Through along public life he had probably been move consistent and had committed less errors than any other Statesman of the age. It is not to be wondered at, then, that the public expectations, cspec::»lly of those who sympathized with his political views, should have been sadly dis appointed at the news of his defeat are, however, very well satisfied with the nomination of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, although we think had someone been nominated from one of the Slave holding States for the Vice Presidency, it would have avoided the charge of sectionalism, which was so successfully made in 1856, Not that abetter man than HAMLIN Could have $abits of industry—his sympathy with the laboring classes—his having demonstrated iuhisown person the nobility of labor— and from the sitnpte God-giveri elements of health and a vigorous constitution, carved out a fortune complete in all its manly proportions) will, when the facts come to be fully known, have their due force with the millions of President makers of this'Kepublic. The man who makes himself—depending upon the simple powers of his own exertions, achieves a purer and nobler fortune than the man whose greatness comes by inheritance or is the necessary concomitant of his position. The former is a natural, the latter is an artificial product. ABRAHAM LINCOLN is surely the architect of his own fortune. He possesses not one advantage to day which he is not fully entitled to bv his own exertions.— His nomination for the Presidency can be regarded in.no other light,than a compliment to the laboring classes or whom he stands to day as the type and illustrious representative. That he will receive almost the entire vote of the laboring classes of the North, we think there can be no doubt What Harrison was in 1840, Lincoln will be in i860. For 20 years the Presidency has been in the hands of Aristocrats, and of men whose professed sympathy with the masses, has been followed up by. the most reckless indulgence in official plunder, and it is high time that the efforts of the poor should be put forth to restore its ancient glory. The holy sepulchre of the nation, containing as it does, 'the archives of our liberty must be regained, and Lincoln is just' the man to lead on the enthusiastic hosts. in the successful crusade. Wjjth such a man as our standard bearer, who {Shall Bay we are not to have a Republican President.

The work which the Democrats themselves so nobly commenced at Charleston, we hope to see completed in November. With such a platform as that adopted at Chicago, and sueh men upon it as LINCOLN and HAMLIN, who can entertain doubts of our success. *.* SERVED HIM RTGHT.—In the Pittsburg (Peon.) True Press, of the 7th inst., we find an account of the beating of a slavehunter by some negroes. It appears that six slaves had left their masters in Virginia, and escaped to Blairaville, Penn., whither this slave-hunter (whose name is Patterson) followed, with the intention of arresting and returning them to their masters. On Monday evening, the 4th, at 10 o'clock, as he was walking about town, making observations and laying his plans, he was attacked b} a band of negroes who administered to him a severe constigation. They did not intend killing him, as Patterson himself says that one of the ringleaders called out to the rest "not to kill him." Served him right! Any man who will so far abase and brutalize himself as to turn bull-dog and slave-catcher, deserves yfe to be beaten, and soundly beaten. W a been nominated or one more eminently crinoline and silk flounces and consign worthy of that distinguished position, but that since success must always enter more or less into every political consideration, we think it could have been more easily achieved in the person of some one less objectionable. The nominees of the Chicago Convention bring into the campaign many strong points of availability. They are men the record of whose public acts wonld not read more favorably either by erasures orinterlineation.s Their characters for integrity and houesty of purpose are unquestioned. All through the mad conflict of 1858 vfhen LINCOLN was the antagonist of the gallant champion oi Popular Sovereignty in Illinois, no man was found so daring as to oven charge him with a dishonorable action. That he has emiticnt talents for statesmanship with an enlarged political experience no one pretends to deny. That he is a man the sterling qualities of whoso heart will draw around him hosts of admiring friends and the soundness of whose judgment and the brilliancy of whose intellect will enlist the popular enthusiasm, there can be no reasonable doubt. He is emphatically a man of the people. His pleljean origin—his In St. Cloud, a large supply of raw material for the manufacture of brides. None in the market, and a pressing demand.— Those havining any surplus to dispose of would do well to put up small packages, carefully, in straw bonnets, berage veils, them to the care of any of our Commission Merchants Miller & Swisshelm ©r H. Z. Mitchell at Lower Landing. Burbank's Express Office, Marlatt & Sims, druggists, Able, Stationer, Proctor & Clarke or any of our business men will gladly receive consignments.

Our place is perfectly infested with widowers and old and young bachelors, kept so'from the necessities of the case. Widows and maiden ladies, none on hand, and none likely to be. Dr. Cartwgight and A be Lincoln With no little editorial flourish, the Pioneer copies a communication from the Buffalo Courier, purporting to be a conversation of Dr. Cartwright, on the 22d ult., in the Rochester cars. The Kev'd Dr. is represented to have said, that 'Honest Abe, is a good citizen, upright, and in point of talent a second rate lawyer/' And again, ul have myself twice run in opposi- tion to Mr. Lincoln for a seat in the Legislature of Illinois, and beaten him both times—and can do it again if I will." Our Democratic friends are beginning early, and piling it on with will.—But they ought to pay some attention to dates. According toDr. Cartwright's Autobiography he ran only twice for the Legislature, namely: in 1826 and 1827, at which time Mr. Lincoln was 17 or 18 years of age.— Try again gentlemen. FIRES.—We learn of two fires* in St. Anthony and Minneapolis, within a week. By the first of these, on the 6th, the house of Isaac Brown and the" tannery of S, Givens, in St. Anthony, were totally destroyed. Tho house was insured for'62,000 loss of the tannery $2,200—insured for $800. Cause of the fire unknown The second occured in Minneapolis on the 12th, 'by which an entire block, of thirteen buildings, in tho business portion of the town, was destroyed. Total loss, between $15,000 and $20,000, a great portion of which was covered by insurance. It was the work of an incendiary. r.,^ ., .rr-,— !P» ••THE NATIONAL CRISIS"—Theophilus Fiske Editor—published at Washington &c. at 20 cents, until the election. A stale, lying, unmanly sheet, filled with old speeches of the editor puffs of ditto and such lying charges as the following: "The Republican party have made untiring efforts to exalt the traitor and murderer John Brown to the dignity of a saint and martyr. .„• It has been sent to every Postmaster in the .country with a pretty broad hint that each of them had better be getting up a ••ciup The officer at .Sleepy Hollow* says that he can't get subscribers, but asks us to give the paper a notice for the benefit of the Great Democratic party and we have accommodated him.

Our cotemporary might have added the following: 13. The discharge or acquital of every Slave ship and crew arrested on the high seas, and tried in a Southern court. 14. The establishment of Slavery in New Mexico. 15. The defeat of that great aud beneficent measure, the Homestead BUT,'by the substitution of a bogus and Useless bill, by the Democrats of the U. S.

The expenditure of $60,000,000 to $75,000,000 per annum, about half of it wasted to elect Lecompton members of Congress, and favor pro-Slavery contractors. To these might also be added the contemplated triumphs of the Democracy. 1. The purchase or theft of Cuba, for the special purpose of making more Slave States. 2. The like acquisition of a large slice of Mexico, with a similar' object. 3. The defeat of the Pacifie Rail Road bill, unless it be located through the swamps and marshes of the South. 4. The advance of the price of postage, so as to indemnify Fowler and others who may rob the revenue^ to influence elections. 4 THE GIOEY or THB Houssf OF IBBAIL Or, the Hebrew's Fijgrimage in the Holy City: Comprising a Picture of Juduiem in the century i'Which Preceded the Advent of Our Saviour. By*FHEWEKICK STRAUSS. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co. 1859. Weareindebted'toito G. Little, Bookseller, Third Street, St. Paul, for a copy of this work and many -causes have conspired to prevent our giving it the careful reading it demands before notice. The author was named the most profound biblical scholar of the age. For years he led the German Unversities, doing the religious thinking for millions and philosophizing himself finally intcskepticism. The present work was written prior to, that time, and is likely the most faithful^picture of Jewish life now extant. Certainly no one could be better prepared to draw such a picture. It certainly is not calculated to increase ones respect for the chosen people, to see them thus in working dress. The picture given of the furious jealousy of the hero priest, on seeing his. friend in that part of the house occupied bv his wife, aud the public disgrace ancLmuch ado over such a matter, would lead one to suppose that MahomccUnism is a vast improvement on the Jewish Dispensation. No wonder the Jews were ever tending to become slaves. I They were the sons of slave moth-,tv ers and could not, in the. nature of the case, be free. Every biblical scholar should read this book, It is worth a whole shelf full of commentaries and those who groan over the increasing wickedness of the world should read it and learn that the better day has always been coming. Every age a vastimprovement on its predo eessor, Immigration IMMIGRANTS.—A caravan: oi? "actuals"1" passed through this place yesterday on .», .. .. their way toFairbauHCounty, ^ilh wives,* EMIGRANTS ARRIVING.—A party of emigrants, numbering some forty-five or fifty, men, women and children, with a fine lot of stock, teams, &c, came over the bridge yesterday. They came from Illinois, and will settle in Stearns County.— One of tho wagons was filled with little boys, whose heads were as white as cotton. A married man, on the corner of Wabashaw street, who has been married many years, and is as yet unblessed with children, was so delighted that he turned several summersaults, exclaiming at every jump, "Them's the kind for me.—Pioneer & Democrat, 6th. IMMIGRATION.—A continual s!ream of emigrant wagons, cattle, &e, was passing over the bridge yesterday. There were twelve teams and wagons, 55 loose cattle, 30 sheep, and about ten families, altogether. They report more on the road. These settlers are bound for the Sauk Valley, (Monongalia county) where they sent an agent last year to hunt up claims. They are from Wisconsin, where they sold their land, thus coming here with means. We hope these settlers will be the means of inducing thousands of other families to settle in that rich valley.—Minnesotian & Times, 7th. OVERLAND EMIGRATION.—Every day this week there have been large numbers of emigrants passing through the city on their way to the rich and fertile country to the north and west of us. We gave an account of those who came over the bridge on Tuesday. On Wednesday there were twelve teams and wagons, eighty-five head of cattle and sheep, and some ten or fifteen families. They were bound for the Sauk valley, Monongalia county, and came from Wisconsin. Yesterday, another party of settlers arrived with stock, and all the implements of farming, and one of them, with whom we conversed, stated that many more were on their way. In addition to those •crossing the bridge at this point, we are informed that many settlers strike directly across from the Mississippi to the Minnesota river, and many from the St. Croix, bound northwest, do not pass through the eity. Probably more settlers have come into the State during the last two months than in the two preceding years.—Pioneer 8th. MORE IMMIGRATION.—Not a day elap- North-west of us. Yesterday six families Minnesotian & Timer, 9th. IMMIGRATION.—-Little groups, parties and companies, varying from .two to a dozen wagons and families cross here every day, bound principally for the country beyond the Mississippi. Yesterday a regular caravan of wagons and families, enough to settle a Township, almost, passed oyer, bound for Bed River, some, 300.miles ISt. Wi of this point. They were from Shdboygan, Monroe and La Crosse Cbrtnties, Wis. They were all Americans, and seemed in comfortable circumstances. They gave as a reason for removing that their land was poor, and they had heard of the richness of the Minnesota soil. .Another little company of Germans bound for Monongalia county passed over .also.'l! Altogether there were 12 wagons arn^ families and about 3!0 0 people, 14 yoke of and 27 head loose oxen, 1 span horsesi, cattle.—Minnesotian & Times, 12th. mm* 9m To POSTMASTERS.—We would call the attention bf the Postmasters of our county to the following paragraph which we clip from an exchange paper: "County postmasters should bear in mind, for weir own advantage as well as that of the local press, thatforevery conn* paper delivered by them to subscribers, they are entitled to retain of the Post Office funds, ten and a half cents per year. It isfortheir own interest as well as that of the.publishers, that the connty papers be preferred, since there is no. trouble oi* making collections or keeping accounts thereof as on papers printed out oi the oountv, the commission on which will not average more than six to eight cents per year," nbn i, n. twean this and Georgetown in ten davs, laa ses bu,t what,a company of.immigrants pass ^g.f-ort for the rich hi EMIGRATION.—About 100 emigrant teams passed through our town since Monday morning with large herds of cattle, and in one or two trains, we noticed some very fine sheep. In every instance, the emi grants had the appearauce of enterprise and wealth, and the requisite for a large increase of population all seeking homes in Minnesota.—Dodge Co, Democrat, MORE EMIGRANTS.—On Friday six teams nnd families came over the bridge, bound for Stearns county. They came from Lake county, Illinois. They brought along a large number of young cattle, and horses and colts. Yesterday seventeen, teams and families, all belonging to one party arrived, and were bound for the Northern counties.

NOR'-WESTB* OFFICE, Friday, June 1st Shortly after eleren o'clock this morning, the booming of cannon at Fort Garry and the shrul soun.l gf the steam-wListle announced the return of the Anson tforthup. The news set the people in commotion, and be£ora,Jong, a stream of anxious individuals started for the Fort, near which the boat already lay, with the Stars and StripeB waving at the fore and the Union Jack atthe stern. The Royal Standard had also been hoisted in the Fort, and the combination of bright colors and the fcpeedy congregation of a crowd gave the bus-thirty iest,place in the Settlement an unusually gay and animated appearance. The boat was all the more welcome" because she was unexpected. Every person who had come to Georgetown since the Anson Northup left for that post, united in representing the navigation at Goose Rapids as an impossibility. It was, then, with the greatest satisfaction we learned that, contrary to the expectation of the most sanguine, the boat,had not only been able to reach Georgetown—a long distance above the Rapids—but that in returning with freight she steamed pa6t them without once touching the bottom. Among the passengers by the boat was her enterprising proprietor, Mr. J. C. Burbank, from whom we received particulars of the trip. It seems that being insufficiently manned, the Anson Northup remained for some time stranded at Goose Rapids, on her way up but that as soon as the captain and crew, whom Mr. Burbank had brought through with him from St Paul, were able to reach her, fromGeorgetown, she was got off and run to the mouth of Buffalo river without difficulty. At Georgetown she was partially painted and furnished and fitted up as completely as the short time left at the disposal of the party would permit. She was then freighted with all the goods which had, up to that period, reached the post, am&unting to about 30 tons, nnd having taken aboard the passengers, left on Tuesday eveninglast for Red River Settlement. By that time the water had risen considerably, and as we have already stated, the boat was carried over the most dangerous place in the river without the slightest impediment. The river continues to rise rapidly, though for the season it is unusually low but were it as shallow as when the boat went up, Mr. Burbank is sanguine of his ability to navigate it with a heavy cargo He states that it is at least one hundred per cent, better than he expected to find it when he left St. Paul/ From Red Lake River to Fort Garry there is, he says, at .all times a depth of water sufficient to float the largest craft on thtf ississippi, and between Red Lake River and Georgetown only a small expenditure is required to render the navigation satisfactory throughout, Mrr Burbank is prepared to incur that expenditure, and has already given instructions for the erection of wing dams at Goose Rapids. In the meantime he is having a barge constructed above the Rapids to lighten the boat in caae the water again recedes. So that .he is prepared for every contingency, and is willing to make contracts for the tftn.sperto.f goods to and from the Settlement, and guarantees their safe arrival at'their destination during the present summer This at once relieves :e people of the Settlement of further difficulty in regard to transportation and substitutes uneasy and expeditious way of reaching the States for the slow and laborious one of cart brigades. Mr. Burbank assures us that in future the boat will be able to make the round trip bc'«av- Uai.rv,. a --r ~-eryteilthh over the bridge to the rich lands to the will prevent her running a good part of the distance by'night, and it is believed that she up in four days :tnd return three days for shipping and lie has caused all tut town und Str. Paul to !JC bridged, and as clo.^e connection will be made with fast four-horse coaches, The calculates upon being able to1 set down passengers at St. rTHe ^JNotningnih.o tent day- Paul in less than nine days after leaving Fort Garry. His complement of 100 wagons, in brigades of 25 each, are also running with freight from St. Paul to Georgetown. The journey from Fort Garry to St. Paul, by steamboat and stage, will ere long be regarded as one of the most agreeable of trips. The cabin of the Anson Northtip .has already been made snug, and on the return passage will be carpeted and furnished as comfortabtv as the "floating palaces" on the great rivers down south. She has also earned th reputation ofkeeping a good tabla. The crew are all experienced. Mississippi steamboat men. In regard to t^e captain, we cannot do better tiian qudte the words ofthe StvPaul Pioneer:—'ME.

Ilia body was taken dawn by the Enterprise on last Saturday. He was a lumber-driver. ON THE WAY.—A friend who arrived by stage last evening from below, informs us that all along from St. Anthony the road is lined with emigrants wending their way to Stearns county.
