Lis. Editou: Having just returned from
a short tour throcgb Pavrcee and Johnson
counties, in this Territory, and knov. ng you
always like to be posted in relation to such
matters, I give you a few Vices respecting the
county. The toivn, Table Eocfc, is tear the
centre of Tawnee county, on the west bank of
the Great Nemaha river, and on an elevation
between two beautiful creeks flowing from the
west; it extends from 'one creek to the other;
and is on a direct line of. the Territorial read
Brownville to Marysvllle;' on Big Blue
river; being the only good crossing within four
miles of this point. It is 30 mil. : ' --west
of Brownville, and 12 'north, of the Kansas
line. The lots are three rods by nine, twelve
lota to the block: Allevs running at right an
&les through the centre of each block. The
Pr.blic Square is twenty-six rods across, each
way, and, on the top of a commanding emi
nence, where is a pretty view of the surround-
streams and country. There are two
houses being constructed at the present time,
one is a mercantile house; six other houses
contracted to be built. Two of your regular
down-masters, are at work constructing a Saw
and Grist mill; and under obligations to have
them in operation within three months. : I
rode over a good portion of the county, found
immense qu?.ntities of good building Stone.
Stone coal, Limestone and Granite, has been
discovered near the town. There is plenty of
timber on all the streams (which are numer
ous) fcr fencing aad building purposes. In
short, this portion of the country lacks none of
Nature's bounties, to make it one of the best
farming counties in Nebraska. ' Before and
beside yon rolls- an "in-'and sea" of ver
dure and luxuriance hundreds of acres of
, corn can now be seen? darkly waving in an
early summer: while behind this, stretch the
immeasurable meadows, coeval with Eden,
their untold wealth of herbage and flowers,
undulating in the fresh breezes like a gently
troubled ocean; and still behind these, at points
not far distant and again far as the eye can
reach,-or farther, swells the graceful outline of
the nearest woods) marking the winding way
of some sparkling water-course; while the open
prairie is often dotted with herds of cattle and
horses; and everywhere inviting their presence
everywhere proffering a harvest to the mow'
er's scythe which seems too bounteous to
have waved here spontaneously summer after
summer, since the deluge,
I will close by saying, that this sunny por
tion , of God's creation this natural inter
mingling of grainfield and pasture; meadow
and grove is more inviting than any aspec
worn by Nature elsewhere; and he who tra
verses these regions, will never again wonder
at the mighty tide of emigration, which sets
with resistless, ever-increasing volume, from
the Atlantic westward.

"Spimt Rafpixgs" "Stop that- Kxock-

said there is a "time for all things," and sve
believe it; yet we entertain serious doubt3
whether that "time" means every, alternate

fail to have respect for the "peace and quiet"
of your friends and neighbors, take a rational

One of our subscribers has written us a com
munication, urging the erection of a church
building in Brownville, generously offering to
donate a reasonable amount of timber toward
the erection of such a building, We agree
with our friend, in every particular; but as the
matter is already in progress money nearly,
or quite enough subscribed we think it "un

An Indlin Burial Ground. A

hs.s recently been discovered on a hill
near the Atlantic House, at the head
of Nantasket beach. Some forty or
fifty depressions of the earth "were first
remarked directly by the roadside, in
closo proximity, and one or two of
.them being dug into from motives of
curiosity, human skeletons were dis
cpwed. On the fourth of July a party
of scientific gentlemen proceeded to
the spot and excavated several of the
graves, in each of which was found a
human skeleton in a sitting posture,
moro or less perfect, and near it hollow
stones, cups, stone pestles, and other
