A man will go blind, and Mad too,
from fear ; I have seen it happen, and
if you don't mind listening, will tell
you the story. I was apprenticed to a
builder when I left school, and soon
got to liko the trade very much, espec
ially, when 4 the - worli- - -WasL-perileuri;‘and

they said I coilld crawl 'along a roof
like my namesake. When I was about
three and twenty I was working with
the famous Mr. ~and went down
to Swansea with his picked hands, to
carry out a contract he had takeh in
that town. While there, I fell in love
with the prettiest girl I had seen hi
Wales, and that is saying a good deal.
For a time I fancied she liked me, and
that Lwas getting ,on, very with

that sweetheart of hers (who was called
Ben Lloydd) and I were not the best of
friends in the world; but i am not the
sort of fellow to harboronalice, and
when the biddings to the 'Wedding went.
round, and I knew that nay chance was
gone, I made the' best of it; I kept
sore heart to myself, and determined to
beat down jealousy, by being great
chums with Ben.

In the beginnizof 1840 Henry Leffing-
Nell was a well-to-do mechanic, living
• near the suburbs, of London, England.
in the month of March of that year a
larceny was committed near.' hie resi
dence; and circumstances pointed to
bite' as the perpetrator. He was arrest
ted; examined bele& one of the stipen
diary magistrates, and fully committed
('or trial. A month after he was con . -
.vi_cted and sentenced to • hard labor in
thefpenal colony . of Australia for a period
of ten years • and; in less than . a Week
thereafter, he was on his way to the fart
of Tani. His devoted wife, who - all the
tline firmly believed in her .husband's
innocence, at 'once made preparations
to follow and remain near • bim during
his confinement, so that she might be
the first, when his ticket of leave, came.
to cheer him - with _good counsel and
comfort him with wifely love. ' -
. The ship. containing - the •convict in;
rived safe and her, cargo of living human
beings was at once transferred to the
government Workhouses. Not so, how
ever, the ship upon which Mrs. Leff=
ingwell embarked. When .about half
way upon bet' jour ley, the •yessel en-
Countered :a fearful storm,- and, after
buffeting the - waves for two days,' foun
dered and went down, the - crew and
Mrs. Leffingwell barely escaping upon
a raft hastily constructed when it was
found that the ship could not be saved..
,A.fternu exposure of several days they
'were picked up by the American ship
North wind, bound from New York , to.
China' where Mrs. Leffingwell was at'
lengtlilanded, only to find herself •fur
ther than ever from her destination,'
and with no immediate prospects of
teaching it. • •
' After several Mouths of patient watch
ing, and waiting, she . was enabled;
through the kind officesf the American .
consul then residing at eddo, to pro
cure passage to Cuba, w ence the pros
pect of . reaching Aus alia would be
very much improved. steeling over a
spate of a year and a alf, .in which
Mrs. Leflingwell passed through many
seenescalculated totry firmer resolutions
than hers, but through which sheclung
to her resolve with true English obsti
nhey, she finally found herself on the
shores of Australia, but as much at a
loss concerning the exaot locality of her
husband's whereabouts as she would be,
of a needle for which she would be hull--
ting in a hay mow. She persevered,
however, but four long years passed
away before she•was enabled to obtain
the slightest trace of her husband, from
the fact that when once landed fram the
'ship,.each convict receives a number by•
which he is only known to the keepers.
Mrs. Leffing wel I knew not her husband's
number; and when she made inquiries
for hitirOfhe was always baffled with the
question, "His number, tna'ain ?"
At the end of the time spoken of, du
ring which her means had become ex
hausted, and she had been compelled to
resort to menial labor, she one day
pickedjup a 'Sydney paper, in - which
was an)account of her hnstiand's 're
lease, the real criminal of the larceny
bfiving been found and transported.
The account gave her 'husband's num
ber and the facts which convicted him
in so precise a manner that. she could
no longer doubt as to who was meant.
Her course was marked out at once.
Going to tlie - prisiati authorities of Syd
ney, she at length learned that "ticket
of-leave man No. 188," her husband's
number, had left for the United States
of America twe weeks after his release..
The thing for her to do wtfs to fol
io* 'him. Scraping together. lier scanty
means, she found the possessed barely
etiougb to pay her passage. She seized
upon the, first opportunity presented,
add in June, 1847, she found 'herself
mice more upon .the ocean, -bound; for
, theist:Ad of the free, with her mission
still uitaccotnplished.
1 i In due time she arrived in New Yost:-
City, where she remained until the civil
war, broke out, not having, in the mean
' tithe, heard one word of her husband,
thOugh 'she - had made every exertion
to find. his , whereat outs. When the
war broke out, and at the first call or
• nurses in the„hospitals, she responded;
and:Until peace was declared there were
none more faithful in the care of otir
,wounded than Mrs. Clara Leffingwell.
While in one - of the hospitals at Mash
ingten, site nursed to life and strength
a Lean who knew her husband in the
artily, Who had been his messmate and
' boon companion, and who, in his deli
riure,,constently-called upon his com
rade 0. come to his assistance, When
the crisis was passed and it
-was known
that the soldier would live, she ques
tioned' him - concerning her hushainl,:!
and 'ascertained that he Was inia Penn
sylVania regiment, having "..enlisted
froth Pittsburg two years before. . •
She tit once addressed Leffingwell a
lettei;'-stating in full her efferta to find
hhs,lind detailing at length het' disa-P
-points:tents and troubles. . -With the
usnal r perversity of the army mails, that
letter never reached its destination.
Mrs. LeffitigWell 'waited' and waited,
but still no answer came, and at length
when the war was over, she set out
once more in search of her husband. A
, yisitto,Pittsburg revealed the fact that
herqulsband's term of enlistment had
expired 'long before, and his identity
was once more lost. She inserted ad
vertisement in a number of the Penn
sylVania papers, calling for information
of his whereabouts, and then sat her,
self again - to , watch and wait. Time,
eretit, slowly orf, and still no tidings of
her absent one. ~ • ••
A , week ago, when she had given up
all hope of ever s ` seeieg her husband
ageht; she very •nnexpectedly received
direet information of this place of abode
froth one who catnercross the advertise

of the Same day. What was her sur

For a moment they stared at each

impulse, they rush into each other's
arms, all unconcious of the gaping
crowd; who, with the usual curiosity,
bad paused n their hurry to witoett, ,

DEAR AO/TATOR:—Blauy guestious
have been asked me •relative , to' this
country, the advantages it holds out to
young people as inducements to come
here and settle, &c. In 'this letter I
propose to answer some of these ques
I will take Dodge County,. es a fair
standard from which.
.to base our. esti
mate. It lies in the' second : tier of cod&
ties,frem the Southern lineof tho State,
west from' the Mississippi about 120
miles, opthe line of -the Winona & it:L.
Peters R. R. It is .betterfee . larni
lug purposes, perhaps, than Oimsteitd,
Blue-Earth, and many other counties
in the State; but will be alairbasls fqr
reckoning. ,
The northernl part of the county Jr
traversed diagonally by a strip of tim
ber called:Vie:Big Woods, which fur
nishes timber amp sufficient . kir the
wants of the whole . count . The south
ern part is almost entirely prairie Sand,
with hero and there a g owth of tim
ber of perhaps a hundre .acres... 4 i?The
soil 'is a rich loam, strong y imprOgna
ted with lime. All the 'Mater here is
hard , the water of the ZUmbro• river,
and of the sloughs draining the county
not excepted. My wife says that the
rain-water-here is harder than the wa
ter from her well in Mansfield. There
is, tie doubt, some lime absorbed - from
the tinst from the roofs, &0., before the
water reaches the cisterns. This super
abundance of lime, in the soil is one 01
the ingredients that make It so 'pro
ductive.- This black, loamy soil is ev
erywhere from two to six feet deep ;
making an almost inexhaustible mine
of - wealth from which the farmer may
make his drafts every year.- Fields
were pointed out to me that this season
yielded twenty-five hush .:Is of wheat u
tile acre, and had yielded thus, lon al,
average, for twelve had thirteen succes
sive years, and. not a fork-Intl of ma
nure, of any 'kind., had been given back
to the soil. Sou as the grain was reap

There is no fall grain raised here. I.
sown on one field it would be , founc
somewhere else in the Spring. It Is lit
orally blown out of the ground: Tll4
fields of which I speak wereno better
than an average of the quhlity of tht

location. Improved farms, within I
radius of, three miles from the count
seat, can be bought for froth twenty t. 4
'thirty dollars-per acre; Wild lands, a.
:good as any of the improved farms, eau
be bad in the County, all the way from
three to fifteen dollars. Very good am,
desirable locations can be secured fo!
ten dollars per acre. Now let us mak.
an estimate of the cost of land) and Im
proving it :

The iirst!crop is considered very pool

,is the yield less than thirty bushels pet

quite as good as the iirbt. The .seconu

and I cry, rd she gives me a - shalt*.

whether she really is my mother, and
vegan to talk to her, she says, "Bridget,

Bridget is big and coarse, her great

My own mother is soft and' fair, and
