It was well understood at the last ses

to apply for admission, and in view of that
fact, an attempt was made to have the

are coming back, are forced to do so from
a want of means with which to prosecute
explorations, and a scarcity of provisions.
They nearly all will return in the spring.

Could we have the control of lands alrea

lay a foundation for a system of education

upon sales of public lands usually bestow
ed upon new States, and which is suffi
cient to defray all the expenses of a State
Government, is ours.
How important it is then,, to Nebraska
that he send a Delegate to Congress
fully and unmistakably committed on this
subject. We may say, all depends upon
the Delegate. Orejron secured admission
only through the indefatigable efforts,
and perseverance of her Delegate. Ne
braska cannot reasonably hope to succeed
unless her Delegate makes this subject
iht preat obiect of his mission. We are
free to say, we will support no man,
hail from where he may, unless he be
committed fully on this project.
As we stated last week, we are in fav
or of an extra session of-, the Legislature,
the special object of which shall be to
make the necessary arrangements for the
convening of a Constitutional Convention.
W'e are informed Gov. Black will con
vene the Legislature if satisfied the people

on' this subject 7 We believe she will, for
. she knows what are her true interests, as
. well as that of the Territory at large.
In speaking upon this subject, the Ne
braska City People's Tress of. the 4th,
' .vThe principal objection raised is, that
' we have, not the requisite amount of pop
ulation. Wre say that the population ne
ver has .been, with, one exception,' and
never should be made the condition upon
which States are to be formed. It is one
question which may enter into the discus-
' sion; as to the necessity or fpropriety of
forming' a State government with the
people of the proposed State themselves.
The attempt has often been made to make
it a test question but such a policy has
: never been recognized as the practice of
ithe country. It was attempted in the
case of Kansas, and later in Oregon, but
tailed in both instances. .
Next week we will furnish our read
ers with the amount of lands offered
sold and returned in this District, that
at a glance it may be seen how much
vacant lands are vet in the Nemaha
Omaha Land Office.
During the month of July just closed,
there were sold for cash, at the Land Of
fice in this city :
Under act of 1S42
Making a total of acres sold for cash and 1 ments
entered with warrants, of 41,104.
We have these figures from Col. "Wil
son, Receiver of Public Monies. What
other Land Office in the Territory can
show a similar amount of business in the
same, or an equal period of time ?
The above we clip from the last Oma
ha Nehraskian, by reference to which it
will be seen that out of the 41,104 acres
disposed of in four weeks, 30,512 was
"warrant locations" made after the sales
and by speculators a class of men vho
it cannot be expected will improve the
lands secured. In other words, the bu
siness was the rush of private entries.
We will compare with the above the
business done at this, the Nemaha Land
District, in three weeks, before the sales,
by pre-emption actual settles.
From the 15th of July to the 6th of
August, 1S59, the following was the bu
siness at this office, viz:

The Premium List of the Territo
The Press of Nebraska City is consid
erably exercised over the $8 egg-plant
premium, which we explained last week.
As before stated the Board have done the
best they could under the circumstances ;
and we are unwilling to admit until time
and experience prove it to be so, that "an
error has been committed" in any arran
gement made connected with the ap-
roaching Fair. The Board did not ex
pect that, in the beginning, everything
would be just right and suit everybody
The editor of the Press or "Cincinna
tus," in our opinion, could much better
further the cause of agriculture, by aiding
in making the best of the present and
profiting by it in the future, even though
there might be errors or inconsistencies,
than by hunting up flaws and finding
fault! We hope Mr. Irish will take
hold and do all in his power from now
until the Fair, to make it an agreeable
and profitable gathering to the agricultu
ral and mechanical interests of Nebraska;
and occupy the space in his excellent pa
per, he ha3 been using to expose "incon
sistencies," in healing any "great dissa
tisfaction" he may discover. Don't you
think, Mr. L, you could do mora good in
that way; feel better, sleep sounder, and
be less liable to be frighted by "whiskey
jugs," "female equestrians and drivers,''
or the "squandering of the people's mo
ney?" Try it.
The Kansas Claim Bill.
We give below an abstract of the dam
ages to property in Kansas during "the
war," as reported by the Commissioners
to the Convention:

From the Plains and Mines.
We have had, the past week, a "call"
from Mr. W. II. Hacknet, of "Hackney's
Ranch," 125 miles west from this city.
We are glad to see William greatly re
covered in health.
He reports a healthy condition of af
fairs generally. Some trouble has been
experienced with the Indians of various
tribes; nothing, however, of a serious
nature ; mostly petty pilfering, for which
that species of the genus homo is noted.
Mr. II. is located immediately upon the
Vigilance Committee In Holt Co.
We learn from Hon. R. Brown, who
has just returned from Holt County, Mo.,
that considerable excitement prevails
there in consequence of recent acts of in
cendiarism, and the session of a Vigilance
Committee for the purpose of ferretting
out the offenders. Within the last six
months several valuable barns and store
houses, together with their content?, have
been destroyed by fire ; the people had
submitted as long as they felt they could,
and, forming a Vigilance Committee, pro
ceeded to investigate where , suspicions
rested. The result has been three citiz
ens, a Mr. .Walker, his son and son-in-law,
have been notified to leave the coun
ty within a given time. The end is yet
to be seen.

Brownville;'X. T., July 17, 1859.
: Ed. Empire: At a period like the pre
sent, when the attention of a great many
persons is directed to the West, the ques
tion is freauentlv asked : Which is the
best locality in which to settle ? The an
swer to this question is very often dictated
by the interest of the party to whom the
question is addressed, and the result in
many instances is, disappointment and
loss. These reflections have been sug
gested by many enquiries addressed di
rectly to the writer, and to avoid the ne
cessity of answering numerous correspon
dents, I have determined, with your per
mission, and in as brief a manner as pos
sible through the medium of your columns,
to give the required information to the
best of my ability ; premising, however,
that my avocations up to this period have
not been of such a character as to render
my descriptions satisfactory to the practi
cal farmer. I shall be obliged to deal in
generalities, at the same time I shall not
omit mentioning in detail either the ad
vantages or disadvantages of those locali
ties with which I am most familiar. With
this positive assurance to parties interest
ed in obtaining reliable information that
the writer has not a dollar of personal in
terest in the Territories, and cannot pos
sibly be actuated by any other motive than
that of keeping his friends who propose
moving westward, in the right direction;
and he thinks the length of time he has
resided in the Territories, gave him ample
opportunities of becoming acquainted with
the most eligible locations, in which to in
vest money, or become an actual settler.
Southern Nebraska, therefore, is be
yond all comparison the finest country I
have seen, and more particularly the four
counties on the river, viz: Richardson,
Nemaha, Otoe and Cass ; but as each of
these counties is but a type of the others
I shall select Nemaha and her county
town, Brownville, for description.
To attempt to do justice to this beauti
ful county of Nemaha, would be entirely
beyond my capacity. It would take the
descriptive pen of Byron to do its magni
ficent qualities half justice. I have seen
scenery more grand and majestic, but a
lovelier, natural landscape, I never be
held. That part of the county which
fringes the river, presents to the eye a
bold, precipitous, and almost continuous
blutt, extending back from the river in
some instances more than a mile. But
when you have fairly cleared this broken
upland, and get into a position enabling
you to take in with the eye a moderately
extensive view of the country behind, he
must be dead to all that is beautiful in na
ture who is not at once captivated by the
extraordinary beauty of the scene which
opens to his vision, its glorious undula
tions, rising and falling with a regularity
which must astonish even the poorest of
nature's worshippers. The landscape
does not present to the eye a naked prai
rie, but is finely diversified by wood and
stream. There flows the Little Nemaha,
its banks thickly covered with walnut and
oak, and the graceful beauty of its wind
ings as it makes its way to the Missouri,
must convince even the most common ob
server, that nature's journeyman had no
hand in the construction of a piece of work
so superlatively beautiful. And when
you connect this with a soil unequalled in
fertility, you have such a country for the
habitation of man as rarely falls to his
lot, even in this favored land. Nor must
it for a moment be supposed that this glo
rious county ii isolated. Not so. It is
situated on one of the greatest thorough
tares in tne world tne Missouri river,
and a constant succession of splendid
steamboats brings it into daily communi
cation with the great commercial cities of
the continent, furnishing a ready market
for the various products of this teeminsr
The marked qualities of the landscape
are its gentle inequalities; not abrupt,
but regularly sloping; just enough to car
ry off the water. And between these
slopes there is almost invariably to be
found never failing springs of water. But
this question of water may be at once dis
posed of by stating that there is not a
quarter section of land in Nemaha county
that does not possess, on its surface, buffa
lo holes, springs, or running streams, am
ply sufficient for stock and other purposes.
To speak of the fertility of the soil would
be superflous; it is capable of producing
wheat, corn, barley, rye, oats, potatoes,
&c, &c, in such quantities to the acre,
as would seem fabulous were I to state
them here, and in addition to the above I
am enabled to state that Fall wheat has
proven to be a complete success. The ex
periment was first tried last fall, and has
turned out to the satisfaction of all who
made the adventure. In concluding this
part of my subject I feel perfectly safe in
making the assertion, that the four coun
ties I have named will have a surplus of
produce this season, amounting to not less
than S350.000. ,
Brownville is the county town of Ne
maha county. It has a most eligible situa
tion, and has decidedly one of the finest
landings on tha river; and it possesses one
feature, which is certainly worthy of a
passing notice, viz: it is far behind the
country by which it is surrounded, "and al
though its progress has been wholesome,
yet the country has far outstripped it in
the race of advancement. In sporting
parlance, the town has been fairly distan
ced by the country. To give something
of an idaa of this, it is merely necessary
to say that I know farms within two miles
of Brownville, that could not be bought
this day for less than 88,000. This may
astonish people at a distance who are not
familiar with the improvements of this
portion of Nebraska.; ' Yet it is neverthe-!
less true, for I am quite sure that less
than the sum I have named would not buy j
Judge Whitney's farm, or others that I
could mention. i
The people of Brownville claim for it a
population of one thousand. This I some
what doubt; but should think from their
last vote, making all allowances, that the
population does not exceed eight hundred;
but that it must become an important
town, -is beyond a peradventure. It is
backed by the finest country on the con
tinent, and - by far the most fertile. It has
timber in abundance. Wood was sold
here last winter at two dollars per cord.
It also has building stone of .most excel
lent quality, within 300 yards of the
steamboat landing, and limestene beds
within a short distance cf the town. ; It
has already, a Presbyterian church, Old
School, in charge of the Rev. Mr. Bill
ingsly, a most excellent man, and worthy
pastor. Mr. Tipton, late of your city, is
erecting a Congregational church ; and
the other denominations, are. respectably
represented. There are a saw and corn
mill, and four stores that would, not dis
grace any city. The extent of the busi
ness done in these establishments may be
inferred from the fact that but a few days
ago. one of the concerns alluded to recei
ved at one shipment over 40 tons of goods.
There are two good hotels; two well con
ducted newspapers, and in the office of
one of these papers I have seen specimens
of job printing that would put to shame
some of the best samples which could be
produced by the best offices in the largest
cities. Nearly every description of busi
ness is liberally represented, not even ex
cepting a periodical office. It is in the
hands of an intelligent gentleman, who
knows how to conduct it. Should you de
sire to look over the pages of a Herald,
or a Tribune, or glance at the pictures in
a Harper, or a Leslie, you can be accom
medated; there they are.-
The banking business is represented by
the House of Lushbaugh & Carson. Per
sons are very apt to sneer at the idea of a
Nebraska Banker. In reference to the
house of L. & C, the writer can give the
assurance that they do not belong to the
Wild Cat Order. On the contrary, they
are gentlemen of the highest order, in
whose hands no man's interest will ever
suffer. They are also deeply-interested
in the prosperity of the town, and have
taken a very active part in the advance
ment of its most solid interests. In a
word, they are every way worthy of the
confidence of the public, and all interests
entrusted to their keeping need no guar
The drawback to Brownville as to
nearly all our western towns, is the almost
entire absence not only or schools, but o
the desire to have them. Ihe intense
deiire to become suddenly wealthy which
pervades all classes of society, is terribly
destructive to the best interests of the ris-
inc: veneration. In the elder States, the
establishment and regulation of school
is a matter for legislation ; hence parents
have only to send their children to
school. In the Territories a very differ
ent condition of things exist. There al
depends on the parents ; and, I blush to
write it, the dependence is indeed a poor
one, and bodes but little good to those
who are to follow us. Men seem so ut
terly absorbed in the cultivation of this
one idea that the best interests of their
children are entirely overlooked, and in
this particular Brownville has no advan
tage over the neijrhborine: towns. There
was a school last winter, but it was dis
continued in the spring, and I am not
aware of any arrangements for resuming
this indispensable requisite to the success
and prosperity of the town. There are
some gentlemen here who are actively
alive to the necessity of supplying this
great want, and through their mstrurnen
tality I hope to see the dawn of a better
day. Onward is the word, and the time
is not far distant when Brownville wil
take her place in the front rank among
the towns in the beautiful region in which
she is situated.
"McC." has entirely underrated the
educational enterprise and advantages of
this city and county. The first school in
Nebraska was commenced" in this city
and the last Report of the "Commissioner
of Common Schools" showed Nemaha
County far ahead of any other county in
the Territory in educational matters. For
the last two years, we, in Brownville
have had a school over nine months in
each year. The Brownville Academy
under the superintendence of Rev. T. W
Tipton, is now in operation, and in a
flourishing condition, and will continue
hereafter each entire year, except of
course usual vacation. This school is the
forerunner or nucleus around which it is
the intention and determination to build
up the Brownville College, a chartered
institution of which Mr. Tipton is Presi
We now have a most excellent School
Law; a copy of the Ohio Law, which when
thoroughly in operation, will place the
Territory of Nebraska in the front rank
in educational matters.
