Major Van Valkenburg, formerly an esteemed citizen but now of La Crosse, made us a call this morning. From him we learned that the firm of Bassett, Huntting & Col, and Van Valkenburg, are already building an elevator at Van Station, four miles south of this city, --that they have the material for another on the ground at Lyle, and that a third one will be built here as soon as suitable grounds for the location can be obtained. These additional facilities for moving wheat, are a fair index to the development of the county, and afford encouragement to the various industrial operations.
