.The Route from Brownville to the
Gold iiines.
The following letter, voluntarily' fur
.tiished us by Mr. S. B. Wright, who left
this city for the gold mines on Tnesday
last, we. take pleasure in placing before
our readers. Mr. W. is an old and re
liable adventurer "has grown gray , in
the service." Was for 15 years a resi
dent of Adair Co., Mo.

R. W. Fcrxas, Esq.,
Editor drcriiscr Sir: Having select
ed your city as the point from which to
. start for the geld m;n?s ; . and being under
.promise to numerous friends in Adair,
. Putnam and Schuyler coun'.ies, Missouri,
to write them tho point I might select
' from which to start, I take this method of
informing my friends and giving testi
mony in favor cf Brownville.
I . have been across the plains four
different times, starting each time from
different places, and tun free to say I
greatly prefer Brownville as a starting
point to that of any ether on the river.
If my friends in Adair, Putnam and
Schujler counties, Missouri, are disposed
to govern themselves by my advice and
experience, they will start from Brown
ville. On this route, the road is better,
shorter, better supplied with wood and
water, and you can travel farther through
settlements than any ether I have travel
led. :
'' - As to supplies and prices in Brownville.
The merchants have every desirable or
". needed article, and at prices, to say the
least," as low as at any other point. A
' friend cf mine who purchased supplies at
St. Joseph and came cn to this place in
forms me that prices are evea lower here
than st St. Joseph.
'. If you ihinlc this brief note will prove
' beneficial to your readers who are con-
' teraplating going to the mines, you will
. please give it a place iu your paper.
. Respectfully yours,
. . . : Scott B. Wright.

The Iowa State Gazette says that in

: Egotism.
The editors of the --crib fed" organs at
Omaha and Nebraska City are just now'
playing extensively the interesting little
game : "you tickle me .and I'll tickle you;"
and at the same time -indulging in an
amount of egotism never witnessed in
practical newspaper men; and ' misrepre
sentations towards other newspapers in
the Territory,- quite unbecoming. One
produces, and the other copies, an article
"Nebraska Newspapers," in which is at-'
tempted to convey the idea that there are
really but'two papers iu Nebraska, "the
J t braskian and A'etcs ; " the others ail be-.
ing "kiting'affairs." The article wasun-1
doubtedly - not written-' for 4home ' con
sumption," where the papers are known.
In defence of our own paper, the "Ad
vertiser" we have only to say, we have
published it now near three jTears,' during
which has in no instance failed to
appear regularly oh publication day,' and
has issued a half sheet but once, and that'
on account of an accident just as going to
press. . uan eitner or "tie two papers in
JWbrdska" say. as much? Not by a long
As to standing,, and patronage
bestowed ly thz people we will go a small
wager pf S50j to go into the Sch'ooFfund
of the Coarity or district of the winning
party, that the "Advertiser?' can show a
larger iubs'cn'ption list; a better advertis
ing and job patronage than either "one of
the saH&-"i'J:o'.papers in Nebraska."' Vill
you come to the scratch?" ' . .
Could- there-te 'a possibility cf.acccmi
plishing any good by so doing, we -feel
like complaining ,lloud and long" in regard
to mail irregularities, and failures. But
while those having charge of the mail
services axe ct responsible to the people
for tktir ccs" we need hope for nothing
b'etter.. Although 'we have mail lines to
this city and county sufficient to aceom-.
modate our wants if faiihf ully and honest
ly served, we can place no dependence'
whatever in them, and they have been
growing worse and worse, cf late, until
our accommodations amount to just nothing
at all at present. . In fact were we with
out any mail facility, we -would' expect
nothing, and consequently escape a huge
amount of disappointment and vexation.
We are confident the principal cause of
mail failure at this point is at 'Reck Port
and Nebraska City. Instead cf cur mail
matter being stopped at Rock Port and.
sent to this place daily, as it should be, it
is permitted to pass on to Council Bluff,
then across to Omaha and -f rem thence
down on this side cf the river to this
place. At Nebraska City mail matter is
permitted to accumulate, because of a
failure on the part of the contractors to
carry it. It is the duty of the Post
Master at Nebraska City in such case to
employ the mail carried according to con
tract, at the expense of the regular con
tractor. No Laws Yet.
Notwithstanding it was announced some
time ago, by the pseudo Territorial Print
ers through their respective sheets, that
the laws of the last session were out; and
the "pets" talked much of the "typogra-r
phical appearancs of the work executed
by us," which was, however, really
printed in New York the people of ' the
Territory are in blissful ignorance of the
contents of said Books, except as procur
ed on the payment cf two dollars for a
copy !
We notice quite a nice dodge practiced
in getting up their present edition, "on
sale at the Book Stores," viz: the names
of "C. C. Si C. D. Woolworth" are insert
ed as publishers in place of the Territorial
Jlap of Nebraska and Dakota.
Hon. S. A. Douglas will accept our
thanks for a copy cf the New Military
Map cf Nebraska and Dakota, by Lieut.
Wahrex from the explorations made by
him in 'cG-7, while attachee to the staff
cf Gen. Harxev, commanding Sicux ex
pedition in 'o7, under the direction of the
cfHce cf Explorations and Surveys, War
Half-Breed Lands.
Commissioner Stark has received all
the plats of the half-breed lands, situated
in Nemaha and Richardson counties, and
is now allotting to the Half-Breeds en
titled. His head quarters is at Aspin
wall. The Aspinwall Town Company, which
is strong and reliable, are now making
renewed, and we doubt not successful
efforts to push ahead this famous town
New Lands Open to Pre-emption.
We understand that the Land Office at
this place is in receipt of plats of town
ships 3 and 4 north cf ranges 1, 2, 3, 4,
5, 6, 7, and 8, west of the sixth principal
meridian, containing 3 1S.000 acres, and
embracing some of the finest lands and
timber that found in Nebraska
Territory. These lands are traversed by
the Big and Little Blue rivers, and are
not included in the tract of country that
will be offered for sale in August and
September next.
These lands are situated alonrr and
contiguous to the great thoroughfare lead
ing from Leavenworth, St. Joseph and
Brownville, on the Missouri river, to the
gold mines of Kansas and Nebraska.

The. cases' submitted,' which called forth
the opinion, were from the Territory' of

Land Office has .suspended two entries at
the La.ndOffice at Omaha, Nebraska,, .as
follows, to-wit':' No. So,. dated March 31st,
1S57, for 294 '70-100. acre's; -No.'210,-dated
May 13th, lSo7, fdr-300 40-100-acres,
as having been made in due form
as required by the act' 23d May, 1S44.-
Three entries have been -made. by. the
Mayor of Kearney City- and .Nebraska
City. Were they, the trustees legally qual
ified, to take the titles at the date at which
the entries were effected? : To tai3 ques
tion I invite your attention, and request
your opinion upon the same.
The certificates or. entry are herewith''
enclosed for your examination in connec-.
tion with the case. Very respectfully,'

.. Hon.. J. S. Black, Att'y .Gen'l. :
ATTonxEY General's Office,
March 21, . ',59.
Sir: .In . compliance, with the request
contained in your letter of this date, rela
tive to the suspended entry of the town
site, I have to- say that I can see nothing
on the face of the .entry which ought to
prevent a patent from-issuing. It was
made by the Mayor. The Commissioner
of the General Land Office thought' at.
first that it-should have been made by the
City Council: The act of - 1S44, which
governs the subject, -does not say it must
be done by either Jmt by "the Corporate
Authorities," Now,. the Mayor is no'less
a portion .'of the ' Corporate ' Authorities
than the Council; besides, I -do not know,
(and I suppose you do not,') whether there
is . any Council under the charter cf Kear
ney City, . At. all events, it appears that
the Mayor, being an.ofiicial organ ef the
City Corporation, has made the entry with
the assent of all other parties;. The pre
sumption is a fair orie that he was author
ized to do. so, if he was, then he -is the'
proper Corporate Authority. '. It is v-ory
clear, that the Mayor, in the execution 'of
his official dbt-y, entered the land on which
the city stands, acknowledging, all the
proper obligations, and trusts .which he
could and would have assumed for the
benefit of the inhabitants.- Their .title
(that of the inhabitants,) became per
fectly good, and it must be enforced in
any court cf law or equity. The object
of the law was to give the owners of .'lots
a good title to their property. When the
patent issues under this entry, they will
have a good title, and I do not. see the
practical use, nor the legal necessity, of
requiring another entry to be made. This
opinion applies also to Nebraska City.
I am most respectfully, yours, &c,
signed. J. S. BLACK.

A person by the name of Goemlat,
writes us from Brownville to ascertain
the "real character" of Dr. Kunckel. So
far as we know the Doctor has no parti
cular character that we can describe for
the benefit cf our correspondent. ' In. an
swer to his query we will state that he has
a wife (no children), who is at . present
in Ohio, we believe. The Dr. left here
last fall for the mines; returned . this
spring, and left again in a few days. He
never did either much good or much harm
hereabout, so far as we are adviSed ; ap
pears to be clever, sociable and very .talk
ative. If he has done you any harm, Mr.
G., no doubt he will make it "all right"
when he next meets you. No more at
present. Sioux City Eagte.

sanctioned in Massachusetts, a wealthy
lady-residing in Gloucester was in the
habit of giving away the. infants of her
female slaves a few days after they were
born,.as people " are . accustomed - to dis
pose of - a litter of kittens. One of her
neighbors begged an infant, which-in

nourished with her own milk, and reared

fairly bo attributed more to the pul'.i.; than Cj
nearly all ciiuss combined. There iiy .pcs

. 1 have always considered advertising liberally
and long to be the great medium of siu-c-csa in bu
nes?, prelude to wcaltli. And I .have made'
it an invariable rule; tco, to a Ivertida in th ? dullest
times, a long csprrier.c-e having taught xac that no
ney thus spent is well laid out; and by keeping ray
business coiit nua'ly beforo tho public, has secured
mo innny sales that I otherwise would Lavo lost.
Stephen Giua-1'.p. . '
Whatever success I mny .have tad in business I
otto iiiaialy to continuous Advertising, and I deem
It good policy to advertise long . in the same papers.
From a ciosa observation, I am fully that
it w impossible) to make much headway in anv branch
of commerce, without the facilities which the Press
alone can give. Jac b Hipge'vay.
ily motto through life ha? been work and Adver
tise. In business, Advertising is th true Philoso
pher's stone, that turn's whatever it touches to gold,
i ha-e advertised much, both in the weekly aud tho
daily papers; r have I found that thoso o tho
largest cicculation cf filter class benefitted me
the most. John J. Astoii.
Advertise ! advertise ! advertise ! This is the life
of trade.anl standing advertisements, you wi'd find
will prove the most remu crative, at least I hav
found it so, daring rr.y business-career thus far: t-jr
should you withdraw but a single week fr(,ni the
paper in which you.are accustomed to advertise, ten
ehanc?3 to one that would be the time whan seme
would-be-customers will lo;.kinto the ruier lV.ryour
business, and not Endir.g it you wili k-ose several
profitable sales. William Guay.
