Albert Lea Freeborn County Standard (Newspaper) - July 6, 1876, Albert Lea, Minnesotao pie ho Ivor acrose Albert Lea torn. It is loca^eu tu retune lakes,and was no.:rn____ of tho distinguished explorer previous 1} mentioned. It was first settled in July, 1855, by Lorenzo Merry, who took the first claim, did the first breaking, created the first house, aud opened the first hotel. So Nicholas, in the southern part of the town, was at one rime a village id cons! lerable importance, and aspired to the county seat Nothing now rem Vina of the village, and the and has been converted into a stock farm. The report of the Southern Minne* sota lluilroad (’ouipany for 187.’), shows that the revenue of this station, as well as tile amount of freight received and forwarded, is largely in excess of any other town upon the entire line of the road. Pickerel Lake was attached to Albert Lea for township purposes, in September, 1858. Im the following year, it was voted a separate organization In October, 1800. it was attached to Man-ohestsr, for election purposes, but afterwards became a part of Albert Lea; and remained so until September, 18(55, when the citizens petitioned for an inde-p<MHlent government.which was granted. The name of the fine- Dke within its borders.first suggested that of the town. 5 diaries and W i ilia Lit \\ iider and A D. Pinkerton located in the summer of 1855, and were the first settlers Alden was attached to Pickerel Lake for township purposes,in Jan. 3 858 but iii October, 18(50, it was detached, and made a part of Carlton. In September, following, a singular entry appears upon the record.showing that the Board granted a petition to detach Alden from Albert Lea, and attach it to Carlton. How it became separated from Carlton, after its connection of the previous year, s*r how it been me pa it of Albert Lea,with Pickerel Lake intervening, the record is silent. In the absence of further light, we will presume it to be an error. In March, I SOG, the town was granted a separate organization. I he village of Alden i> located upon the Southern Minnesota Railroad, ten miles west of Albert Lea. and is second in size in the county. Tile station reports show. lls), that it is second in importance in the receipt and shipment of freights. Moscow is one of the towns of distinguished prominence in the settlement, organization, and early political history of the county. S. N. Friable was one of the three first Commissioners. Dr. Watson, also a citizen of this town, was not only one of the delegates to the Constitu tional Convention in 1857, but enjoyed the honor of a goat in the State Senate ' water, and for the first three terms The Rev S. G. Lowry, also of this town, may be regarded as the pioneer clergyman, and for years answered calls, picking his trackless way to all parts of the county. A heavy body of timber, on section 17, was long previous known as the Moscow woods, and this suggested to the early settlers the name of the town, which so continued until its organization, when it took the name of Guildford, but in June, 1858, it was again changed to us original title. A colony, consisting of Thus. II. Morgan. Nathan Hunt, Iiobt. Spear, and Thos Ellis, made the first settlement, on the Both of May, 1855. Rieeland was organized under the name of Beardsley, in honor of Sam. Beardsley, one of the first settlers ; hut in October, 1858, it was changed to its name, at tile suggestion of Isaac B aker, who was then on the County Board. I Shortly after settlement, a small tract I was surveyed into town lots, under the ' name of Fairfield, but it never acquired the dignity of a village Ole C. Olcson ami Ole Hanson located in August, 185(5, and were the first settlers. Bancroft village had ifs origin in what was known as the St, Paul Land Company, of which TW N. Oliver was agent. Afterwards, by general consent. the name was applied to the whole township 8o far as we can learn, this town has the honor of having erected the second school house iii the county, which was done in the fall of 1857, by the I district now known as No 20. The villa ge of Bancroft was a sharp rival for the county seat in 1857, and at that time a place of considerable importance, having a newspaper, store, sawmill and other evidences of busy btl', all of which has since disappeared Manchester was first known by the name of Oldburg, but was christened Buckeye at irs organization. In May, 1858. it was again changed to Liberty Finally, in October following, at the suggestion of Mathias Anderson, it was changed to Manchester, in honor of a place of the same name in Illinois, where Mr. A. had previously lived S S. Skiff entered this town in June, 1856 as the first settler. EL Earlston was organized nary. 1858, under the Stanton, out of respect to Elias Stanton, who had already suf-fored amputation on account of frostbitten feet, and who died of the same in the spring following. After its or- -3' Geneva. re stton that -1. - - . i ■ ■ - .......-.    in remembrance of (ti?-., j Geneva, N. Y ., for which, pleasant recollections were entertained. Tin village of Geneva, situated upon the bink of a gmjtilu! take of that name, is a town of eSttsiiJerable prominent!. Milton Mercy was tire- first settler, locating in the fail of 1855 Bath was first, organized under tho naoic of Porter, in honor of E D. Porter, who settled near Clark’s Grove. I he east half of the town was attached to Geneva, and the west half to Hartland for township purposes, but in September, 1858, assumed an independent organization, and the name changed to Bath, at the instance of F. W. Calkins, who was desirous of perpetuating the memory of tile town in which he was born. Mr. Calkins was the first settler of Bath, and made his entry in the spring or early summer of 1857. \\ hile the town of Hartland is one of the best agricultural districts in the county, it yields but few facts concerning early history. It is understood to have been named after a town in Windsor county, A ermont, and was first settled by two brothers by the name of Boardman, in the fall of 1856 One of these, B. J. Boardman erected ilia first house, and at onetime represented the town on the County Board. Frceborn was among the early towns organized, and the first election held in May. 1858. The township and village, as well as the lake upon the bank of which the village is located, all seem to have followed, in name, that of the county. T K Page and Win Mont gooier), were the first settlers and en tered upon their claims in July, 1856. The village of Freeborn is handsomely located and is a town of considerable importance. Tt is in this town that the first entry of land appears of record, bv Nelson Everet, as previously mentioned, though the correctness of this is doubt ed. was also up s ization, and in their places rise up the the town was ! homes of greater material, comfort, and domestic enjoyment; the rail pens h ave given way to substantial granaries, and straw stables are fast making room for spacious and costly barns. School houses afford educational facilities at convenient intervals, while the green foliage beneath which they are embowered, ofter their inviting shade to thousands of promising children. Sloughs, inlets, and streams have been substantially bridged, while lone rows of shade-trees mark the line of the well-beaten turnpikes. Railroads and uraiu s'atiens remind us that we have already passed the period of pioneer life, and that we are entering upon an era full of inspiring hope for the future. Looking upon our material prosperity for the 20 years past, we may well enquire, what will be the condition of Freeborn county IOO years hence. I will not undertake the speculation. None of us will be living, but remember the present is always the parent of the future. As tho twig is bent, so if will grow Oar influence does not end with our lives. The uncounted generations to come, hold us largely responsible for their intellectual, moral, and religious character; for, be it known, that whether we will if or not, the broad or restricted philanthrophy of our own lives will impress itself upon all the distant future. they might contain evidence upon which to convict some Republican official. A more indecent disregard of the rights of private citizens has not been furnished by our reformers this winter, thun was presented by this seizure. Several vain attempts to repeal Hie I resumption act have been made during j nieipal the week past; but further efforts in swollen j that direction will now depend upon the action of the St Louis Convention. The bill, equalizing the payment of bounties, recently passed by the House, and favorably reported by the Senate, gives eight and one third dollars per month to every private and non com, missioned officer for the time served in the I Ilion army during the late war, deducting all national bounty received I jOO AN.

She is said to have possessed a very irritable temper, and her name has become a synonym of “ vixen ” or “ scold.” It is mort than possible, however, that the judgment passed upon her by mankind has been too severe. A more charitable disposition would undoubtedly have discovered in her many good qualities, an I have attributed her failings more to bitter disappointment than moral obloquy. The party nio*t intimately connected with her, and therefore best able to form a correct opinion, gives her credit for many domestic virtues.

ORIGIN OF NAMES OF LAKES, RIVERS, ANI) IIM HER. A word will also be in place regarding the origin of names as applied to lakes, rivers. Ac. Bear lake should be prop crly known as Pickerel lake. The story is this: Buffalo boing found in this section as late as 18555, a patty consisting of Joseph Hewitt. Joshua Jackson, and Joseph Kelley, visited the-region of Nun la, in quest of that game, in the summer of that year. Their hunt was rewarded by one or two buffalo calves, and some fine pickerel taken from that lake, which suggested the name, as mentioned. On the other hand, Pickerel lake should bi known as Bear lake. Some years previous to settlement, the Indians 1 killed a large bear near that body of ever afterwards calltd it ; Bear lake. In 1854, one Austin ; Nichols, who had previously obtained i from the three buffalo hunters, glow- ; ing accounts of their beautiful Pickerel lake, made a tour through from the I Cedar to the Blue Earth river, and j struck Bear lake in his route, of which he knew nothing. Supposing it to be ; the Pickerel lake of which he had been told, he so called it, and his acquaintances settling in soon after, accepted his impression without further inquiry. A year later, the pioneers who settled Nunda, knowing that their northern neighbors had "ot the sr    o tile Pickerel, supposed of course that the present appropriation the Bear belonged to them, and so the ! time as an adjustment of accidental change became a fixed fact. Lake Albert Lea was originally known as Fox lake. In 18555, when the exploring command of Lieut. Lea, ap- gmization. it was attached to Freeborn for township purposes. In June. 1858, the name was changed to Springfield and in October following to Groton In September, 1851). the citizens asked for a separate organization, which was granted, and th-j name changed to Earlston This name was finally agreed upon, in respect to the memory of a distinguished Sweed of that name, who settled in that town at an early day. and who was drowned in Freeborn lake. Robert ll Miller was the first Settler, and located in August, 1855. Newry was first named Seward, as a mark of respect to the distinguished Senator from Now York, and. at tho Ranlo time. January. 1858, was attached to Geneva for township purposes. In October, following, the name was changed to T’nion, and the town grant present j preached this body of water, a white fox ran past the head of the column, and thus unconsciously had his memory perpetuated. \Y Lite lake was first known as Lake Chapeau. From the bank of this, where Limit. Lea rested his command a few hours, the lake presents the shape of a French miliitary hat, and this suggested the name. When this ideation of country was afterwards mapped out, Chapeau was dropped and Albert Lea .applied. The early settlers knew but little about these likes, and took it for granted that the large one bore (lie name of the distinguished explorer, and thus the Fox was finally allowed to escape In the meantime. Clapt. A. \V. VV bite settled upon the bank of the original Chapeau, and bv common consent his name has become associated with that lake. 'hurtle creek is said to have been so named in LS.Tl A party crossing the same was stepping from one stone to another, when one of the number suddenly lost his footing—the stone as he supposed gracefully sliding from under him. It proved to be a huge turtle, with which the river then abounded, and the stream was ever afterwards called Turtle river. It is noted in Lieut. Lea’s minutes, as Iowa river. Mule lake was discovered by the Boardman brothers, who. as we have already said, first settled Hartland. of I Their entry into that town was with a mule team. driven across the country from Geneva. On their let urn they related their observations, and the mules were at once dignified in the naming of the lake. Some years previous to settlement the heavy body of timber which covered Sec. 17, in Moscow, was set on fire in a dry season,creating such a conflagration as to suggest the scenes in Russia, under the great Napoleon. From that time it was known as the Moscow timber, and thus the name of the town had its origin. I have now passed in review the salient points in the history of our county, aud although that review has been necessarily brief, it show’s a record and a glow th of which any people may feel justly proud, aud calculated to inspire high hopes for future prosperity. Few agricultural regions have ever witnessed a more rapid advancement in population, growth of products, educational endowments, and general material aith ; and I may add. that seldom has in Jan name to Washington, June 20, 1S76, The indifference observed here relative to the action of the St Louis Convention, the Tilden wing led by that unique reformer. John Morrisey, who, it is generally believed, bas bought up several State delegations in the intor*Ms of reform and with a view to the purification of politics ; and the anti Tilden wing under the leadership of “ Boss ” Kelly, autocrat of Tammany, which has produced such specimens of honest statesmen as Tweed, Connolly, Sweeny, Garoy, Geuettc, Watson, and scores of others of that type, is probably due to general feeling of unbelief in a Democratic success this fall, and because the minds of almost every man, woman, or child, sufficiently old to interest itself in State matters, are absorbed by a contemplation of the perils now threatening the nation, through a failure of the appropriations necessary to continue the functions of the Government, and to the peculiarly distressing effect teach a failure will have on most of tlie residents of this district. The cheering assurances of last week. from semi-authoritative sources, that a compromise upon the appropriation bids was almost -assured, havo given place t an apparently wellfounded belief that the House has stubbornly determined to neither recede one particle from the arrogant position taken, nor t i act vorably upon the suggestions of j President, relative to the passage ijoint resolution, continuing in until the deadlock, between the H< usa ana sen ate, should render available the proposed appropriations for the next fiscal year. The Senate has manifested a disposition to accede to the reductions of force proposed by the House, when they have appeared compatible with the best interests of tho Government, and in other ways show n its d.-ire to operate in the interests of economy. But the House declares by its action lhat unless all the unjust reductions of force and pay, aud all the irrelevant, absurd, and in many cases nationally hostile legislation that has been tacked on to the various appropriation bill-are concurred in by the Senate, no ap j propriations at all shall be granted, lf j is well to remember another feature of j the matter, showing quite as convincingly the spirit of rebel Democratic hate and revenge, animating these ex | Confederates and their abettors.in their determination to cripple and to finally seize the the Government. Seven months have elapsed since the asseuib ling of Congress, and all that time, up to a very recent period, tho appropria tes id cut. I he following is THE PLATFORM.

The army bill has passed the Senate, so amended as to provide for the present force 25,000, as against 22.000 proposed by the House, and for the restoration of officers’ pay to the old rates. It increases the appropriation about $3,000,000, about the figure named in Secretary Taft’s amended estimate It is not known whether Senator Morrill will accept as Secretary of the Treasury.
