TIIURSDAY MOUSING, JULY 15, 1S58.
Being compelled to spend most
of the past week "at pre," and in the
"job room," we have been able to give
but little attention to our paper.
Archer Ilalf-Breed Line.
In another column will be found a no
tice relative to the town of Archer, in
Richardson county! We learn by J udge
Ferguson, that by an act of Congress,
what is known as the "McKoy line," has
been established as the half-breed line.
This leaves Archer off the half-breed
land, and also relieves many settlers who
had spent their all in improving claims,
and had the "new line" been established
would have lost all. Too much credit
cannot be given E. S. Dundy, Esq., who
went on to Washington in person, and to
gether with our Delegate, succeeded in
accomplishing what has been done for the
Our Delegate Returned.
We had the pleasure of welcoming again
to Nebraska soil our worthy Delegate,
Hon. Fexxer Ferccsox. lie and fam
ily arrived in this city by the steamer
Mansfield, on Monday evening last. Af
ter remaining until Wednesday, he
proceeded homeward by stage, via Ne
braska City. He will meet with a hear
ty welcome all over the Territory.
As we stated last week, a floating par
agraph has been going the rounds both
through the press, and in private circles,
to the effect that the Supreme Court of
the United States had decided that lands
sold by the General Government are not
taxable by the States or Territories until
tho jirtual iacue of the patent. We had
no faith that the report was true. It was
so directly in the face of all right and
justice ; and we intended to have written
somewhat at length on the subject this
week. The following letter from Hon
G. W. Jones, to the editor of the Du
buque Express and Herald puts the mat
ter to rest:
Washington, June 15, 1S5S.
Sir: I called on the Clerk of the U.
S. Supreme Court, relative to the decis
ion of the L. b. Supreme Court with re
gard to the illegality of taxing lands be
fore the issue of the patents. He informs
ine that there is no such opinion given
and as he owns much land in the West
that it is subject to taxation, which would
be exempt under sucn a decision, it any
such has been made. He says the news
paper report is without the least founda
tiou. G. W. Jones.
In another column will be found an in
teresting letter from Falls City. We
thank the writer for the compliment paid
us, and assure him and all others, that in
the future as in the past, either in private
or public capacities, no effort shall be ne
glected, calculated to develope and ad
vance the interests of Nebraska, and es
pecially the southern portion.
jour neighbors that the
navigation of the Nemaha, to the Falls
is no longer an
ftxperiment; mat over
the future prospects and importance o
Falls City no longejr hangs a doubt. W
acknowledge fraukly, that at first sight
of this place ; the beauty of the site ; the
inexhaustable water-power; the abun
dance of stone and timber, and the vast
amount of unexcelled farming land around,
we were forced to admit Falls City more
full of promise than any other point ofl
the Missouri river, it has been our for
tune to visit. In addition to the advanta
ges which nature has bestowed, no point
can boast of more energetic and enter
prising citizens. With such a combina
tion, who can fail to prophesy correctly as
to the future of this young city ?

Many complain that mo
ney is too scarce to subscribe for our pa

bers or others who desire tu become so in
this and adjoining counties, we say we will
cheerfully exchange our labor with you.
In other words anything you have to dis
pose of that we can eat drink, wear, or
pay debts with, we will take as money, for
subscription advertising or job work. Beef,
pork, chickens, butter, eggs corn, wheat,
oats, potatoes, turnips, hay, wood, stone
coal, brick, shingles or lumber, are just
as good to us as cash.

have also landed from steam boats.

meet with sufficient patronage to enable
him to branch out still more extensively.

The annual ebulition of patriotism on
the immortal Fourth is overand we are

great occasion. j-.

first, because it was the anniversary of
our municipal birth, the first house being
completed-one year ago ; secondly, be
cause the White Cloud Ferryboat, with
some two hundred citizens of Oregon,
White Cloud, and Forest City, were ex

A free dinner, on a large scale, was

Recollect, if a home weekly paper is
to be supported, home influence must do
it. Everydollar sent to Eastern papers
is at an expense to local papers. The
county acquires prominence through its

to every one who has county interests at
stake, his home paper is a necessity.
Never will such a man take a paper prin
ted away from home until he is able to
take a second paper. His first paper will
