HOW TO BUILD UP A COUNTRY.
A gentleman has forwarded us, for pub
lication, a letter written by a real estate
agent, located in lowa, from which we
make the following extracts :
"While on a recent visit to my native county,
Clearfield, as well as your own locality, I was more
forcibly than ever struck with the present, as well
as the certain future difference in prospects of the
laboring classes, and hoped, as I now do, that the
relative advantages of the East and West could be
contrasted sad understood by all. I found, through
your State, a large proportion of the population,
whose entire aim appeared to be the satisfaction of
present demands, without & hope or expectation for
the future, beyoi:d existing necessities. I regard
such a state of affairs as unfortunate to the country
and ruinous to the individual, for when hope is
abandoned, and with good reason, the individual
becomes nothing and communities become mono
polies in the hands of the master. I saw hundreds
of able-bodied men who, if in lowa, would, in ten
years, be worth $5OOO, and while securing such
competency would assist in Renting up one of the
best countries in the United States. We have no
men among us, if industriously inclined, that are
not only living and educating their families, .te.,
but are steadily gaining property, and why not?—
We have one of the most fruitful countries that I
ever saw. The soil is unsurpassed; the climate is
good ; we have plenty of timoer, good water, and a
stock range for grazers unsurpassed in the world.
We want more men ; men who are willing to toil,
and if needs be, bear deprivation fur a time, till
their labors shall receive their certain rewards. We
want particularly farmers, but good mechanics al
ways find employment and are well paid. I can
11a1110 and designate many of our first citizens, fi
nancially, who came here five and ten years since,
penniless, but who brought willing hands and have
I might speak of society—a "blundering stone"
to many eastern people. I will say, without hesi
tation, that a more intelligent and progressive peo
ple cannot be found anywhere. Our schools and
school system is second to none. Churches and
religious societies are everywhere, while no one,
though he be a stranger and in distress, ever want
ed for that attention that belongs to civilized com
" Why can you not induce some of your people
to come and improve some of your fine lands now
yielding no increase? You and they must be ben
efitted as well as our country."
It gives us pleasure to publish the above
extracts, as it presents us with an opportu
nity to say some things which we might
n,ot otherwise have had an opportunity to
• Ii % the first place, we desire to call the
attention of our people to the means adopt
vestern business men, to build up the
community in which they are located. This
letter is only a sample letter of the many
received from the West. The moment a
man locates in that promised land he is in
ioruiecl that the next thing that is expected
from him, is, that-he induce all his eastern
friends to follow him and bring all the
coney that they can command. If one
letter is not sufficient, a second, or a third,
yea a dozen, if necessary, are indicted, and
FAA constant importunities will even drive
the most resolute man to do what he may
regret all the remainder of his days. If
our business men were to represent our ad
nutages and resources to eastern capital-
Isla mad importune them, as the western
people do us, there would be no necessity
for a single family leaving Huntingdon
county and spending a little for
tune in hunting a burial place
in the sands of lowa or among
the pines of Minnesota. Let our business
men take pattern from our western breth
ren and represent our peculiar advantages,
on all occasions, in the most glowing terms,
and they will find good results flowing from
And, in the next place, we desire to con
sider the question of the practicability of
sending our children, or our surplus popu
lation, if we have any, to the far West.—
There was a day when the young farmer
could leave his native heath, severing all
the associations of hio early youth, and in
a . fevi shOrt weeks find a home, in what was
len; the far West, at a Milked expense,
where, by a few years of inc;.=sant toil and
the enluincementil the price of lands about
lie t;eZitriiake a'fev thousand dollars,
but that day has passed away, and the man
who goes West to-day must have as much
money to establish hint as is necessary to
ttet him up in the State of Pennsylvania.
cheap lands can only be bought west

Vfic, VFPe'M of I:4*W OPP, and impro-
Yjg Ae dmvs iki male up, all the difference
liketween the coot here and tb,cre.„ with the
prices of the products of the former great
ly in favor of the East. The Westis over
run with sharpers " men
- rrve -- by their wits, and to escape them is a
marvel. It is their business to "fleece," if
not in one way, certainly in another, all
who come, and few there are who escape.
The western people are consequently fast
and of necessity must be sharp. Our peo
ple have no such training and are well cal
culated to be victims and they generally are.
But is there any necessity for our people
going to the West? We doubt it. In
fact we could support twenty times the
population we now have and find employ
ment for all. And we claim that it would
be better, by far, to do this than to dissev
er the family relationship and spread a sin
gle family over a half dozen States, as is
now done and at the same time permit them
to rob us of the money in our midst. Let
farmers cut up their farina, as they do in
the East and in Europe, and they can sup
ply their children enough ground to
produce as much grain as is now produced
o,in, the entire homestead, and let mechanics
husband the means which it would require
to take their offspring to the far West, and
let them engage it in manufacturing, and,
they will not only find employment for
their children but for any number of oth
ers. Instead of sending our people to the
West we want more men here. The West
wants our money and our labor; we need
it worse than they do. Let our family re
lations be preserved by keeping families
intact, and let our people understand that
the West affords no better opportunities
than the East, and the eternal drain, which
has impoverished some portions of the East
for many years, will cease.
The man who will labor here will do
equally as well as the man who will labor
in the West and prices are always better
here. There are very few men in straight
ened circumstances who in a pecuniary
point of view better their condition by go
ng West. The time has eomewhen the East
should make arrangements to hold all its
population and to husband its wealth. The
West boasts over its schools, and its church
es and its spirit of enterprise, and well it
may, it has drained us of our money, our
labor, and our talents and we have encour
aged it, and it will continue to do so unless
we make arrangements to employ all our
people here and it can be done. Shall it
be done ?
