delightful portion of the great west.—
St. Paul iii not 20 years old, and has
over 20,000 people, anti is growing Yap
_idly. Was a tradiug post for Indian.
and For tradcrs in 1849; grew slowly
until 1854, then grew rapidly until '57,
when the gkeat financial 'revulsion
smashed everything up. This city. and
State suffered awfully, because old
Panic caught them in the midst of great
speculative excitement real estate
selling at the wildest possible
prices, &c., so that when they smashed,
they smashed all over. About that
time, Congress granted to Minnesota
Jive million acres of public land, for
railroad purposes. They began to issue
State Railroad Bonds, and to Bank on
the 13oinIs issuing money and grading
the roads. Soon the Banks smashed
,up ; grading ceased, and every man bad
his pockets full of bad money. Then
the war began to east its shadows ahead,
and when it broke upon the country,
Immigration to the west ceased ; men
and money were drained out ;-Minneso
ta furnishing 24,000 men in two years.
These are some of our trials it the
midst of which the bloody Sioux fndi-
ans broke upon the people with the
/most horrid raid known to
Thousands of eicifams fled the State;
others rushed to the towns, and for
years were afraidto venture again up
on the frontier—since then the Indians
have all been removed from the State,
and the people are as safe as in any
State in the Union. St. Paul and the
entire State, now show signs r of great
progress. sever has such a title of Im
migration beenseen,as now comes to this
State. Many assert that 1000 per day
come into Minnesota. They come from
every State in the Union, and from over
the water. Men are now at work on
eleven Railroads in the State, eight of
which terminate in St. Paul ; five
thousand men are now at. work grading
roads, fibre. in short, this city and
State are just getting started, and they
have a big future ahead. By net of her
last Legislature, a history of the State
has been prepare(' by U. Hewitt, for

. without cost to each person sending
their name to Mi. Hewitt, al St. Paul.
The State pays all express.

We place 'the Republican County
•ticket at the head of the paper thik,
week. Our notes • on Arnot occupy
hearly all our available space, and force
us to defer,the usual notices of Candi
dates until next:week. Suffice it to say
that the Republican's of Tioga County
have never put in nomination a less ob
. jectiohable ticket as a whole.
The truth of the old saying—" One
half of the world knows nothing of
what the - other half is doing"—Was ver
ified to us Wednesday, 7th inst., on the
occasion of a visit to Arnot. , We had
long-months before promised to see-
Arnot, the latest growth of th - Tioga
coal regions, but promises prow d more
plentiful than leisure ; and as th it town
wasaikely to " keep," and even grow
better by keeping, we did not much
worry it. However, at SA. M.,
of the 7th; in companywith a friend,
we set out over.the,Charleston hills for
a short cut to the Arnot mines. Of hard
tack . , hard boiled eggs, dried beef,
cheese, etcetera, we luta art abundance,
looking, as we did, sagaciously forward
to a possible confusion in the points of
the compass and a detention in the
woods lying between Maple Hill and
our destination. Our route was over
South Charleston hills to Maple, Hill.
The day was fine, the airibraeing,_ - the
fields luxuriant with crops, and though
our Itosinante reminaed us of a three
legged-stool, we reached the borders of
civilization at Mr. J. E. Henry's . fartn,
two and a half miles from the city in
the woods, at about, 9 o'clock. ILere we
stabled Rosi ulnae and took the bearings
of Arnot. Mr. Henry instructed us to
bear to the right of the sun and plunge
into the woods. In we went, over ]ogs
carpeted two inches thick with grey
moss, over acres of those -curious bon 1-
der:i of which glass is made, through
undergrowth like your lingers for densi
ty, always to the right of the sun ; for,
said Mr. Henry, " the more to the right
the nearer to Arnot." We took our
, lo lbs. of hones ifheerfully over the
linicult grOunti ; but Mitchell, with
his aldermanic corpus-195 Pis. avoirdn

Half it mile of this brought us to a bri
dle path, and thence to Arnot was plain
as a pike-stall; Such hemlocks, aiut
beeches, and maples, and such mos
quitos—ah, _it was splendid. Mitchell
wept at every pure. At a little rill we
halted and comforted the inner man
with a lunch and a draught of sweet
water. Half a mile from Arnot Mr.
Peter Cameron, Jr. Foreman of the
mines, ma and gave us - a, hearty Scotch
welcome. Five minutes later we enaerged
from the wood in full view of the uplift.
part of the•village. Standing here a
moment to take in the "situation," we
heard a muffled roaring, apparently
from the central regions, and with a
clash and a olatter out from the earth
shot a dun mule, and a train of cars
loaded with black diamonds. We be

Arnot occupies a basin forming the
easternmost watershed of the North,
and West Branches of the Susquehan
na. The clearing covers over a hundred
acres, probably, in which the Bloss R.
R. and Coal Mining Co. have built some
130 tenant houses, a school house, store
houses, offices, and a large Sawmill and
Shingle Mill—all in a neat, plain, and
substantial manner. The chutes form
a conspicuous feature of the busy scene.
At the upper chute the Company has
‘3OOO tons of stock coal. Here we found
Mr. James Cameron, Superintendent of
the mines. He was superintending the
lading of a number of cars, and was as
grimy as a chimney-sweep. After wit
nessing the process of assorting the
coal and the disposal of the slate and
" bone,' , (more of which hereafter) the
Steam Sawmill was visited. This mill
is now doing day work only, and with
circular cuts about 50,000 a week. It
has cut 22,000 in ten hours. There is a
shingle machine and a portable grist
mill run under the same roof. Thence
.to the stables, where Mr. A.. 1. Patehin
showed' us a well ventilated and wen
ordered establishment. These stables
are for mules, of which upward of 20 are
in use by the Company.
Arnot has no hotels, but where hos
pitality \ is the rule, such hospitality as
,we experienced, hotels are not regretted.
Our party was handsomely dined by
Mr. Peter Cameron, as, later in the day
it was hospitably " teaed " hy- Mr.
James Cameron. These gentlemen are
practical miners, and it gives us pleas
ure to state that the Company fully ap
preciates their value. They are not
given to theorizing, but abound in
practical knowledge which they not
only know how to impart, but do int
\part willingly. We also met Mr. John
Dunmore, Foreman of one of the
mines, thoroughly up to his badness,
and withal one of the best fellows in
the world.
After "dinner we visited the new
chutes at the mouth of the new drift.
These chutes are fine specimens of the
massive and use, in combination, and
are, we believe, after the plans of the
Messrs. Cameron. At themouth of the
gangway, or entrance to the mines, we
w h ere armed with a miner's lamp, and
Mounting one of the funny little cars
of a train returning for its load, and
drawn by a mule which Mr. C., culled
"Jeff. Davis," were 800/I raffling along
into the heart of the mountain at a
smart pace. IL was dark and cool, and
in places rathei'wet ; huL after all it
was agreeable to glide through this
tunnel, paved with pudding stone, roof
ed with slate, and celled up with jetty
coal, whose " slip " sparkled- like dia
monds. The farthest heading of this
drift is now about 2,700 feet from the
entrance, and the vein worked is from.
43- to 5 feet thick. As the work• pro
gresses the coal increases in quantity)
and in quality,*and it is with no inten
Lion to make invidious distinctions
when we say that the Arnot mines pro
dues as fine coal as any of the bitumin
ous coal measures in this Common
wealth. •
Suddenly Mr. C., Our chaperone, who
sat in the car next ahead, uncoupled our
car, and " Jeff" whisked the train on,
leaving us in the midst of a darkness
which our feeble lamps only served to
render visible. Our conductor swung
the car about and shot it into a lateral
gangway which terminated at a stout
door. Swinging this door open he
shoved us through, the door closing
with a bangwhich reverberated like a
peel of thunder. Here," said Mr.
C., " you can breathe the air which
has been the round of the mine, bring
ing with it all the odors of the exhala
tions of men and animals." It was not
sweet as spicy breezes from Ceylon, but
it was tolerable—•rather less deadly than
the atmosphere of the Court Room
after an hour aftei an audience has
gathered therein. We were In the
gangway parallel to the main, driven
through for purposes of ventilation.
Here our conductor became our projec
tor, and bowled us along rapidly until;
suddenly, the great red eye of the fur
nacel at the shaft speered at us in the
perspective, reminding us of the; ythic
forge-fire of Jupiter. Arrived iat the
shaft—a huge chimney rising ,hrough
the rock to the height. of 72 feet, and
extended above the surface about 50
feet more by timbers, wo beheld the
safety valve of the mine, the fire which
cannot be quenched and leave the
tuiners vital breath. t_This fire, always
burning at the foot of the shaft, rati

the tendency to vacuum creates a steady
cinTent Inward from the mine's mouth,
along the gangway to the farthest head-
ing, through the lateral drifts, into the
parallels, through the crosscuts into
ranges of breasts on either side of the
gangway, and so into the parallel drift
which conducts the stream of foul air
to the shaft. This variously setting cur
rent of air is quite strong, and no
where, except• in the return drift lead
ing to the furnace, does there ap
pear to be any lack of oxygen, This
matter of ventilation, so vital, is not'
only the simplest but the most effect
ive known. Were that -fire to go
out the air would stagnate, and the
miners might never return alive.—
The constantly recurring gunpowder
blasts alone, would soon poison the
blood with sulphurous fumes but for
this ever inpouri ni of the fresh air river,
and the as constant outpouring of the
turbid flood.
We Cirn
on for a full description of the processof
mining as carried on at Arilt. Possibly
we may notget hall in order as he gave
i us, but as a matter of interest to
many w try.
A gangway six feet - wide and about
five feet high i drifted into the side of
the hill, the direction being determined
by the shape of the land, somewhat,
and by other considerations. If through
rock, it roofs itself; otherwise the roof
is planked and propped. One hundred
yards from the first outcrop of the vein,
lateral*angways are driven, and so on'
for every hundred yards along the main
gangw‘y. In these lateral drifts, 32
feet frbm the main gangway, drifts
called parallels are driven, leaving a
piller 30 feet wide. Thin a space of 32
brds square is laid off as a range of
easts. Through this mass drifts are
driven, leaving 30 feet of coal as pillars
between for supports. Then these pil
lars are split by drifts to within ten
yards of the next lateral gangways, and
then "worked back," as it is called;
'and so on. To secure a supply of fresh
air in these chambers, "crosscuts" are
driven through the pillars from the
gangways. When a "breast" is mined
out these crosscuts are closed up, and
new ones driven elsewhere.
The drifts in these mines are driven
by the " slip" of the coal. The "slip"
is, in other words, the line of cleavage.
It appears to be the natural separation
of the crystalline parts of the coal, and
always proceeds in a right line. The
miners pick out the bottom of the vein,
say two feet high and a yard under;
then put' in a blast near the roof and
break it down. Several tons are often
dislodged in this way. Sometimes tlite
coal is broken (Hawn by N.vedges driven
between the slate roof and the coal.—
The slate is thrown out by the miners,
though not entirely clean, and the good
coal and " bone " loaded into the little
cars which, from, early morning till 4
P. M., appear and disappear at the en
trance of the mine like so many great
The upper mine was first opened and
the heading is now about 3,300 feet fiona
the entrance. We did not visit it, the
day being far advanced when our little
car shot from the bowels of the hill in
to daylight. The Company is now
taking out about 400 tons per day. At
the chutes every pound of coal is picked
over and the slate and bone carefully
thrown out. This " bone " is simply a
sort of transition coal, containing much
earthyonatter, though the people here
about burn lots of it, supposing it to be
tolerable;coal. Hewever, the Messrs.
Cameron - informed us that not a pound
pf "bitme" went to market from Arnot
except by mistake, the Company hav
ing ezirned, and desiring to retain, the
reputation of sending the dewiest coal
to market.
It was a day well spent, and yet left
us in -just so much dissatisfied as we
fell short of seeing the older and more
elaborate mine. Of course we live in
hopes of "doing" Aruot in full at no
distant day. It is only a town• just be
gun. When it contains a furnace, bloom
ery and rolling mill--ne it must ere
many years, it will become the largest
town in Tioga County. The Company
owns several thousand acres of land,
undtrneath the surface of which exist
inexhaustible quantities of coal, fire
clay, and hematite, to say nothing of
the bed; of glass rock which crop out,
or lie in boulders, everywhere.
That we do • not risk too much in
prophesying of furnaces and rolling
mills for the future Arnot, should be
evident to 'all who know Mr. F. N.
DRAKE, the 13. C. M. Sr, R. R.
able Superintendent, of whose energy,
iron perseverance, and superior business
tact Arnot is an earnest and a monu
ment. If there be iron ore enough to
warrant the work, Arnot will have the
furnaces and ;Lie mills within a decade.
Mr. Drake is, cve believe, the president
of the Tioga R. R. Co.
Not less than a million ! tons of ; coal
will be sent to markiit from Vega
County this year.
The Democratic State Convention on
Wednesday of -last week nominated
Hon. Asa Packer, of Carbon County,
as a candidate for Governor, and C. L.
Pershing, of Cambria, as candidate for
Supreme Judge. Mr. Packer is a life
long Democrat, entirely respectable,
and a millionaire. He was nominated
because of his money ; for nobody pre
tends that Mr. Packer is a man of tal
ent Had he been the possesor of not
more than $50,000 he would never have
been thought of as a candidate for Gov
ernor. He will be beaten 16,000 at least.
. The Clinton Democrat has passed in
to the hands of Messrs. Whaley &
Orth, the latter gentleman having been
connected with that journal several
years ago. Of Mr. Whaley we know
nothing. Mr. Orth is one of the most
zealous, and at the same time one of
the most gentlemanly of Democratic
journalists. The paper is much improv
ed, typographically and ' otherwise.
