Northern Pacific Farmer. GEO. A WHITNEY, Editor & Publisher. WADENA, MINNESOTA. America is far ahead of all other na tions in the number of patents issued, the number thus far reaching 250,000. A large portion, of course, are of no practical value, but they show ingenuity aud inventive genius. The total increase of population in this country by immigration from 1820, when the record was first kept, up to May ol, 1SS2, is eleven millions four hundred, and ninety-three thousand, eight hund red and eiglitv-three. The calendar year 18S1 gave us 720,000 additions to our population. Mexico is throbbing with all sorts of enterprises for increasing transportation facilities, which the government is sub siding and encouraging liberally. Large sums are promised for round trips of steamers to New Orleans, New York, Liverpool or Italy for canals and rail road lines, intended to open new coun try and new fields of trade. American enginers and mechanics are finding re nninerative employment i...

Northern Pacific Farmer. GEO. A WHITNEY, Editor & Publisher. WADENA, MINNESOTA. Tho national bank notes are receiv able for all public dues except duties upon imports, as well as for all liabilities of the United States except interest on the public debt and the redemption of treasury issues. The national bank notes are also full tender for any debt due to a national bank. The air is full of rumors of an impend ing strike of locomotive engineers, tel egraph operators and others connected with railroad running, to take place just previous to the moving of northwestern crops. Such a move would seriously embarass the railroads for a time, and it isd doubtful if any general strike will oc cur. Should the railroads be burdened with business requiring an extra amount of labor it is probable that compensation therefor would be increased. It is not best to borrow trouble about reported strikes, or take sides without full knowl edge of the circumstances in each case, which cannot be obta...

GRALEY AND HIS SISTER. I*sat in a dreary little cornor, iivan old-fashioned, shabby little "tavern nestled beside a rugged hill by a wind ing road, in a northern county of Arkan saw. "Worn out" with work on a large daily newspaper I was advised by a physician to seek not only rest, but rec reation, where I could not even see a newspaper. "By the way," the physi cian added, "I see that quite a number of health-restoring springs have been discovered in Arkansaw. You might go out there, find a spring, sit down neai it, and remain until benefited or fully prepared to successfully dispute any statement that niigit be made in sub stantiation of the water's efficacy." This refined, not to 3ay stupid, attempt at humor was followed by serious advice. I had tried fashionable watering places for a summer's rest, and on every occa sion had returned to my work with a weariness like that you experience at i, morning, after having passed an almost sleepless night. Well, I acted upon the doctor's s...

Northern Pacific Farmer. GEO. A WHITNEY, Editor & Fublisher. VVADEXA, MINNESOTA. The adjutant general of lihode Island, in his report for ISS1, states that the uni form and equipment of her brigade of militia is superior to that of any other oi the United States, and is equal to that of the regular army, and that the Rhode Island militia could take the field thor oughly equipped for any service at loss than twenty-four hour's notice. It is estimated that the South has this season paid to the North $55,000,000 tor •wheat, ^-0,000,000 for corn, $72,000,000 for meats, and about $25,(XXI,000 for hay, butter, cheese, oats, apples, potatoes, etc. The southern papers are continually urging the people to stop a portion of these expenditures, by diversifying their own products, but cotton is still king in that region and brings in the money to pay for all these foreign products.
