[Correipondenco of the Grant County Heratrl.J LiPoiNTE, July 13, 1843. Mr. Editor My second leuer lo you, des- ionriiey to itat place was dated nl Cbinpewa Falls, which I presume has reached Ibe Herald before this time. Having at last reached this place after 50 days of hard and drea- ry travel it becomes proper to close this narra- tive so far as I am concerned. Of these we have not had to exceed ten days wilhou'l rain and of the heaviest kind. The whole counlry, has been literally inundated, and, as if the ele- ments warred againsl the first attempt to1 iuvade Ihe counlry with teams, every thing seemed to contribute to impede our progress except our own unconquerable resolution to accomplish what we had undnaken. The Indians say they never knew so rain in one season, and the waters are so high lhat they expect to lose their Hire crops, worth t'u them more than their an- nuity (or the fear. For the Srsl Iwenly five miles north of Chip- pewa Falls we had prairie, and in one day we travelled twenty miles, bul the weather was ex- tremely hot and the flies inlolerable. This drove Ihe canle back the night following (the twenty mites) lo Mr. Warren's, which took the next day lo regain them. Al the same lime our hor- ses, covered wilh their own blood from Ihe slings of the numerous flies and musquitoes, ntiempied to make their escape from torment end return also. Two out of four reached Mr. Warren's, but my two having ropes forty feel long lo them got fasi in the brush, as we suppose, and could nol be found. After two days search we had to leave them to ihe cruel merries of ihe flies, mns- quiloes, nnd wolves. Benjanin offered a reward to a half breed, who is well acquainted wilh ihe counlry, if he would find them, but whether he succeeded or not we have nol heard. After Ihis bach sei I rode tny Interpreter's horse and he and Benjamin joarneyefl on foot, or Mr. Whiuiker's mare. Our journey ihe rest of Ihe way was ihtough thick, Heavy limber, wilh occasionally an opening or barren. We passed the Red Pipe Stone Moun- tain, near Red Cedar Lake, leaving the Moun- tain of the Lake and Lac Che-tac( Pelican Lake) 10 ihe right. The latter Lake is properly the hend of Red Cedar River, improperly called Munomonee. The water about 40 miles through a chain of these lakes which lie north and south before it leaves the Red Cednr Lake, al which place, and where ihe river Is first form- ed il i.-: aboul eighty yards wide, wilh smoolh, gravel bottom, and at ibe time of our crossing was three feel deep being uncommonly high. The land over which we travelled is rolling, of a good soil, bearing a heavy growlh of herbage and grass, bul full of "boulder nigaer Leads." I saw but two pi ices beiween iheFalls ofChippeva and the Luke lhat the rock assu- med a square or workable form: lhat was at the Pipe Sione Mountain and at ihe Falls of Bad River; on ihe lake shore they assume a worka- ble loino, of course. The limber through Ihis whole district varies bul ihe greatest amount is Pine, and Susar ma- ple. Tlie spruce, balsam, fir, while eedjr, oak and while bircli are abundant; anil a good sup- ply ol'olher northern limbers. Over I he entire distance from Prairie dn to this place lliere are bui three creams ihat can ever stop a Black River, Lo Clare and Ihe Chippewn. The Lo Clare, will du il only in ex'reme hiah waier. In low water ca- noes cannot navigate it, and the road crosses Black and Chippewa rivers at Ihe where boats can be had to lerry if the rivers artf'not low enough lo ford, which'is olien Die case, AS we estimated ilie distances each day I make 11 4sM miles from Prairie du Chien lo tnis place, but I think il will nt: be ovet "00 when the roacl is corrected and regularly laid out. Ills movt likely lhat we lite distance loo hijfh Indeed, we differed in opinion as lo ihtm and some place ihe di-lnnces much lower than I did It may run up to 320. li ii proper for me lo say thai I was obliged to leave the teams abont 100 miles from Ihis place with an Indian and a breed to guide itiem and sent from here nn Indian to meet Ihem They have nol arrived, but are expected in a few days. We bassed aboul 20 Lakes this side the Chip- pewa Uivcr; and 1 am told that any other route would pass as manv. These'lalies are among the most benuiiful lever saw. The water is clenr as deep and ihe botioms cov- ered with boulder rock; ibe same as ihe earth on Ihe sides ol ihem. The mosl beautiful of lakes In Ihe wliich is ten miles Ions and averages three wide, and connec- td wilh it emptying in or out nre about a dozen smaller ones. The ouilet of this is about ihirty fee! wide and near 15 Inches deep where we crossed, having n smoolh (jjavel bouorn and low bar.ks. The sight of the Indian village at this ford, and is covered wilh blue grass. It is a lev- el, sandy plain 50 feel above the, lies be- iween iwo Lake and was ndmilted by our com- pany lo b: a more beautiful site for a lown than lhat of Madison. Tbe numerous lakes above alluded lo abound with excellent fish; many of them have no visi- ble outlet and bill Mule inlet. As near as the eye could determine the whole of them Irom Red Csdar to Loni; Lake which empties into Lake Supurtor by Bad River, a distance of about 100 miles, are upon one common level which forms the siimmii level beiween ihe Mississippi and Superior. The Sa-ma-kaw-gan branch of ihe Saint Croix runs beiween ihem, but heads in a lake on the same apparent, level. To connect Ihis entire chain oflakeslor 100 miles, by using ihe valley of ihe ria-ma-kaw-gan, would not le- quire over twenty miles of digging, and in no instance much if any over 50 feet deep, and such depth as that but snort. If ever a canal is made through ihis region this is the mosl feasible ronle I have been able lo discover. From the Missis- sippi op ihe Chippewn and Red Cedar lo ihe lake of lhat name, perhaps 100 miles, thence inrongh the chain of small lakes above describ- ed. 100 miles mure, Ami thence down ihe onilel of Long Lake, by Bad River to ilie lake, say, 100 more, making ihe entire distance not to exceed 300 miles. The entire rise and fall in this rim e, I think, will nol exceed 350 feet, if over 300 and as the Mississippi at St. Peters and this lake are about upon a level the fail each way from the summit is about the same. The Bad River which ihs Indians now call Mash-ke-ze-be, 'Swamp is the largest emptying into th'is Lake from Wisconsin Ter- ritory, except except the Saint Louis or Fon dn Lac River. Il is 100 yards wide at Ihe month lance Ihe water is deep and on a level wilh the lake: but except a narrow sand hill at the lake shore for three miles np ihis river it is a contin- ued swamp or marsh. At a point five miles up the land is suitable for building, and a canal of one mile would connect the river with the bay south of this place. The Agent of ihe copper mines has establish- ed his head quarters at Copper Harbor, a litlle cove on Ihe west shore of Cape Ke-we-we-nan, where, I am told a ciiy is already laic! out. and the building ol stores, offices, and houses com- menced. A large number of miners are in that region exploring. The fdtnons Copper Rock proved lo be about five feet long and four wide, averaging ten inches ihtck. li is claimed by J. R. Vineyard, and it is supposed will cost him a- bout Jo per pound to cm It np and get it away. I have heard of no special discoveries as yet, but all are sanguine of success as no doubt exists irjai ihe cimniry in copper and silver. We aie now "living on Ihe fal of ihe" lake. Fish, of various kinds, fresh from ihe waier, go flouncing inlo ilie pots but gel slill before they reach ihe table. I here Jn ample lime for ihe business of ihe Agency. The payments will not probably be miide before ihe firsi of September, when I ex- pect a general gaihering of Indians and white men. Unless I am furnished wilh a sirong mil- itary force 1 fear some serions trouble with the half I have long since apprised Govern- ment of ihe danger, but ihe heads of affairs seem unwilling lo believe lhai Ihere are breakers a- head, and I as unwilling to risk of mon- ey aod goods, ihreatened wilh robbery, lo avoid Ihe expense of a guard.

In 1833, a treaty concluded, at between Ihe United and the mie and other of whereby all the tract of laud north of lllinoti fliate line, comprising the South-eastern porUbn frf consin, was ceded to the United In that treaty it stipulated lhat the .__ might retain of said tract Ultrl ehanic., jual commencing bnainera, might bnl in the mean lime the Government hid "in a srnal) capital to a.sisl them and enable privilege ol surveying it.

In ldH3, Chicago wns laid out inje lots, and some of the best of them sold high as fifty dollars, such nr are now well worth ten thousand dollars, it began lo inoreaae in popu- lation considerably. Two or three steamboats came up that year wilh emigrants and goods. In 1334, a greater number of boats came Other dies for villages upon the Lake we're le taken possession ot. rest, Milwaukie and Racine. Among ttie In November, 1834, Capt. Gilberl Knapp, who had formerly commanded a Kevenue Cut- ler in the United SUtes nerviee, came in a schooner frpm Chicago, with a number of men in his employ, and a winter's supply of provis- ion, and landed at the mouth of uur rivfr. He claimed on both sides of the river, that tract which is now embraced in the recorded plat of the village. He was the first settler upon any portion of that tract of country now included in the counties of Racine, Walworth and Rock. He built a email log house 14 feel square, near where ihe warehouse of Junes Dulton now stands, where bis men wintered. During the following winter, in 1635, Paul Kingston cnme and settled upon the tract immediately south of of Capt. Knapp's. About the same time, Wil- liam See sealed at the Rapids, and the Beards- leys upon the river ubove. One of the Mrs. Beardsleys, it is believed, was the first woman lhat came to this section of the Rit- ciue Advocate. TOWNS IN THE INTERIOR. inhabitants of the lake town are not alone, by any means, in the work of improvement the present season. We were pleased to notice, while at Rochester some two months since, a number of substantial brick buildings going up, and everything apparently tagenuily than they otherwise could. We be- lieve a noccestful applicant can obtain C200, at regular interest, and have ten year, to repay it; but the applicant must be a married me- chanic, and must have served a mp- at his trade. In Franklin', time a nerion served a seven years' apprenticeship at the trade he wished to learn; but now trndea are mixed up and divided, and two or three ytanf deemed enough to give to learn the branch desired.

Alf AWKWARD BATHING Liverpool Mercury describes an amusing in- cident which recently occurred at the far Aimed bathing lown of Aedcar. A tady and gentle- nitin on a visil to llic watering place, not satis- filed with the restrictions and forms attendant on bathing from a machine, started early in tlie morning in Iheir phaeton to a favorable spol two miles up the sands; the lady provided her- sell with a bathing dress; the gentleman, as gentlemen often do when bathing, declining such incurabrance. .rlfter undressing on Iho sand, and placing their clothing in ihe carriage they took to the waier, but hid scarcely recov- ered from Ihe first "dip" when, to Iheir dismay, they observed Ihe horse start away at a smart trot with the carriage, dresses and them in Ihe primitive stale of our flrsl parents! After some lime it was arranged for the lady to proceed in her very scanty and picturesque costume, to Marske, where she arrived bnre- fooled and tjnivhendud, and after relating the awkward and laughable account of the horse, succeeded in borrowing a drejs for herself ami husband, which was forwarded in nil .peed to him; and he wn. soon recognised by the me.- eenger, patiently enduring hi. wolol plight, though up to his chin in the water. STHAN'QE few days since a black, scurvy neuro, ran away with'a beamiful while girt only 15 or 1C years of age. The girl was brought sip hi one of our respectable fami- lies as an adopied child, and the negro was ser- vant in Ihe same family. Besidesenticinjj away ihe girl, Ihe negro hired a horse and carriase al Clark's Siable, whicli lie has doubtless riispo-cd of somewhere on his roule. The last vhai wns heard ofihe lovely couple they were on a steam- boat, crossing inio Canada! They are now, doubtless living as, man and wife! Horrid thought! Thesirl certainly nail a qneer lasie! Since tbf above was in ivpe, the Post-masier here received a lelier from ihe P. M. ai Huron, binttns iliai ihe negro was arrested Ihere on sus- he had es-caped and tefl the girl, horse and wagon!
