Land Sales In Xeiaaha Land Dis
In accordance with our promise last
week, we. here jre:eiit our . readers with
"the figfrW in regard to the sales of
public lands, at the land office in. this city,
commencing on Monday, Sth inst.
The following talle was prepared and
handed us for publication by Mr. Eli
Wilcox, Clerk in the Land Office:

guarantee that all things will be in readi
ness at the appointed time, than to know
Mr. N. has the matter in charge.
This, as one of our cotemporaries has
remarked, is the First Territorial Fair,
and wc have reason to hope and "expect
it to be a creditable affair.
To those acquainted with Nebraska
City and its facilities we need not say a
single word as to the accommodations that
may be expected. Every accommodation
and comfort that can be desired, on such
! occasions, visitors and exhibitors may rely
upon. The grounds will be convenient
and well arranged. Hotel accommoda
tions and hospitality will be unsurpassed.
We hear that some 'persons in Nebras
ka, because the premium list or some other
trilling item does not exactly suit, are dis-
and it remains with Nebraska City and
her great resources and influence to con
trol the route and to have the steam train
then passing daily within view" of her
beautiful and commanding eminences.
Nodaway is a "rich county, admirably
adapted in its topography to the construc
tion of a road, centrally located to a
country of untold fecundity, and compris
ing within her limits a number of wealthy
and enterprising citizens who will bid
largely for the route, and it will behoove
Nebraska City to arouse all her energies
and strain every nerve if she would hare
the advantage in this great enterprise,
so momentous indeed so absolutely vital
to her interests. Ycur people should take
action at once, and ascertain what is pro
bable they can do; for Col. Osborne is a
working man, and will press the road for
ward over that route which offers the ear
liest and best inducements. "':

Making a grand total of 513,072 acres
baring been offered, of which 1,562 acres
were sold, bringing $1,860.80.
.Without any intention on our part to
petninue in opposition to land sales, we
way be permitted to say, now the land
sales are over, that the result is just as
we predicted, as regards revenue, or aid
to the 'national .treasury, from sales of
public lands. . Our figuring shows the re
ceipts thus far, at all the offices in Neb
raska, a little over - $1S,000 $20,000
will, without doubt, cover the amount.
From what we can learn, there were
really no lands sold at sales except a few
rhofe tracts in some desirable locality, or
claims the residents upon which were not
entitled' to the pre-emption rights '
In this District the great rush was be
fore, the sales, by pre-emptors.
The prices at this office ranged from
$1,25 to as high as $7 per acre.
From (he Mines.
Nearly or quite all the intelligence now
BeingTeceived from the Nebraska Gold
Mines, is cf the most flattericg character
confirming the existence of rich gold
deposits west of us.
During the past week, letters have been
received by persons in this place and Ne
maha, City, from those who went from
this county. - We have reliable authority
for saying tha Johnson, Edwards, Fields,
Cotton, and others from here, are averag
ing $20 per day. $6,000 in dust has
reached this city since our last issue. We
also notice, from our exchanges along the
rirerv that at nearly every point more or
Eessgxdu is- Being continually received.
The Brownville route is still increasing
in popularity. The returning travel by this
route, has been, and is yet, immense, and
in no single instance is it failed to be pro
nounced the shortest and best in every
.respect. All who came in this .way, will
return by the Brownville route in the
frpntKr. We" have conversed with those
who had gone but all the other routes and
coming in curs, hesitate not to give it the

interview with S. F. NrcxoLLs, Esq., of
Ifebr&sla City he, who is of enterprise
notoriety all over this country. He has
m the main taken charge of the securing
fcnd preparing the grounds for the ap
proaching Territorial Fair to take place
at Nebraska City on the 21st, 22d and
3d of September. . We desire no other

us do the best we can now, and if the

places with better men for next year.
There is a remedy, and it cannot be secured
by a refusal to participate ! Take right

Eo. Nebraska City News:
Dear Sir: I find the splendid steamer
D. A. January about .to leave for the up
per river, and my friend Capt. Weaver,
the obliging clerk, has furnished me with
pencil and. papet to write you a lineinre
gard to that' great mutual interest, about
whicbyheu I was in your city a few days
ago, you were asking me some questions
that I could" not very lucidly nor satisfact
orily answer -tiz: The ' Flatter Country
Railroad. - ' .
. Since ray return yesterday I have had
some conversation with Col. Osborne, the
present able President of the Company,
and Be informed-me that he had already
received one hundred thousand dollars of
the State Bonds, and that the work would
now be prosecuted with all diligence.
There are three routes proposed above
one by Nebraska City, one through No
daway County and the other about raid
way between, and it will depend very
much upon the efforts made along these
rivals, and their relative subscriptions,
where the ro.td will be located.
I should not be in the least surprised to
see the cars running from this city to the
Iowa line in eighteen months from to-dav
From the Plains.
Our townsman and fellow-typo, Jeff
Favorite, who has been on the plains
since early in the- spring, is now in this
city purchasing new supplies. ; He has a
'ranch" beyond Ft. Kearney and is, we
are pleased to know, doing well. He re
ports intelligence of the most encourag
ing character from the mines.
Mr. Roper, -another proprietor of a
"ranch" on the plains, is also here pur
chasing supplies. He came in since Mr.
Favorito and brings still more favorable
reports from the Nebraska gold mines.
At Brownville a better and cheaper
stock of supplies can be had than at any
other point on the river. We mean what
we say, and only ask the matter tested.
According to the Valley Tan, a Gentile
paper in Utah, the population of Mormons
in the United States and British Ameri
can colonies in 1858 was not less than
6S.700, of whom 3S.000 were resident in
Utah, 5,000 in New York State, 4,000 in
California, 5,000 in Nova Scotia and the
Canadas, and 9,000 in South America.
In Europe there were 39,000, of whom
32,000 were in Great Britain and Ireland,
5,000 in Scandinavia, 1,000 in Germany
and Switzerland, and in France and the
rest of Europe 1,000; in Australia and
Polynesia, 2,400; in Africa, 100 ; and on
travel, 2,800. To these, if we add the
different schismatic branches, including
Strangites, Rigdonites, and Whiteites
the whole sect was not less than 126,000.
In 1S59 there appears to have been a de
crease, in the population of Utah the
number being only 31 ,022, of whom 9,000
were children, about 11,000 women, and
11,000 men capable of bearing arms.
There are 3SS men with 8 or more wives
of these 13 have more than 19 wives ;
730 men with 5 wives; 1,100 with 4, and
2,400 with more than 1 wife.
120,000 In Dost.
Several miners nassed throush this
place a few days since, showing specimens
of gold from the mountain diggings,
amounting to several hundred dollars;
but on arriving at St. Joseph, exhibited
$20,000 worth j how much more they had
is uncertain. Over $12,000 worth was
exhibited here a fevf days since ; Mr.
Evers had. over S10.000. and returning
miners daily pass through here confirming
the most favftrable accounts or the mines.
It is impossible to say how much gold dust
has passed . through Omaha, for many
miners show but samples, and but lew any
lanre ' amounts: there can be no doubt,
however, that one or two hundred thous
and dollars is a small estimate.
It will soon come for sale her e, from
parties remaining at the mines, when we
can obtain better estimates, rppeak-ingor
the " exit of frold the Rotkv '- Mountain
Xtws of July 23d says : "When we speak
or its beifi? conveyed nnvateiy, we mean
that no less than eight miners have left
here for their homes within the last four
weeks, with not less than ten thousand
dollars each, of the dust, and perhaps
many more that we nave no knowledge
of." In fact we believe most of the gold
going from the mines goes privately, and
is not reported on the way. xMany are
returning for outfits,- with reference to
permanent' settlement there in the spring;
others, perhaps, on a visit to "Home,
sweet home." One thincr is certain, that
most of the returning miners show speci-
mens and all agree somchnd gold vvnetn

Sinking: of the Steamer Kate How
ardBoat Total Loss Value
At about 6 o'clock on Thursday even
ing, the popular Missouri River Packet,
Kate Howard, Capt. Jos. S. Nanson;
Clerk, Moses Hilliard, while descending
the Missouri, struck a snag, or some other
hidden obstruction, in Osage Chute, below
the mouth of Osage river, and sunk in
five minutes. The snag struck near the
bow and tore ihe boat's hull open, back
to the wheel, where, it struck. The boat
settled down on the snag, and yesterday
morning she was lying in fourteen feet
water astern, and about seven feet at her
bow, the water very nearly covering her
The Kate Howard had one hundred and
twenty cabin passengers, about sixty of
whom were ladies, and the evening being
fine, many of the passengers were on the
hurricane rsof when the accident occurred.
Capt. Nanson- promptly informed them
that the boat was going to sink, and this
announcement caused much alarm, which,
however, soon subsided, as there was no
danger to life.
The passengers stayed aboard during
the night, in -a good degree of quietness
and resignation, all of course sympathiz
ing with Capt. Nanson and Hilliard for
the loss of their fine boat. Under the cir
cumstances, the evening did not pass dis
agreeable on board tlie Kate Howard. A
meeting of the passengers was called, a
reverend gentleman made a speech, and
afterwards a prayer. Resolutions, such
as the occasion called for, were drafted,
and the Kate's band played something
like a funeral dirge.
.. -. Letter from the President.
Pittsburg, July 30.
The following letter from President
Buchanan yas received this morning by
Hon. William McCandless:
Bedford Springs, July 25, 1859.
My Dkar Sir: I received your kind
note of the 19th inst.,also a leader from
the Post, .Whilst I appreciate as it de
serves the ability and friendship display
ed in the editorial, I yet regret that it has
been published. My determination not,
under any circumstances, to become a
candidate for re-election is final and con
clusivemy best judgment and strong in
clination unite in favor of this course. To
cast doubts upon my pre-determined pur
pose, is calculated to impair my influence
in carrying cut important measures and
to afford a pretext for saying these have
been dictated by a desire to be re-nominated.
.With kindest regards, &c, I remain
sincerely and respectfully,
The United States Pension Office issued
during the month of July four hundred
and five warrants. Of these all but one
were issued under the act of 1856 ; 336
were for 160 acres, 43 for 120 acres, 25
for 80 acres, and 1 for 40 acres.

it is from five to fifiv and one hundred.

Burying the Dead.
A letter from Solferino, after the bat
tle, describes the Furial of the dead thus:
"At one point by the side of the road,
ten or fifteen peasants were buryinsr the
dead. They gathered them from the
field on hand barrows, from which they
were rolled into the hollow places on the
roadside, from which graver hatl been ta
ken to repair the track and after five or
six, or as many as the space would hold,
had been tumbled in, afoot or two or dirt
was shovelled over them.
"No attempt was made to remove an
of their clothing, or to lay them side by
side, or in anv particular position. They
tumbled them in just as they happened,
and they were covered up just as they
chanced to fall. In many cases rhey were
laid lengthwise, in single file, and then
covered over a second row being next
put in, then a third, a fourth, &c. In this
way over two hundred had been buried in
a single place. It will take a long time
to dispose of all the dead, and the carcas
ses of the dead horses also : and if this ex
cessively hot weather continues, the health
of those who reside in the vicinity, cannot
fail to sufier.
How the 3Iatter Stands at Present.
The following considerations are sug
gested by the peace just concluded in
Lombardy having been ceded to Pied
mont, it follows that the two fortresses of
Mantua and Peschiera, which have al
ways formed part of Lombardy, must be
given up to King Victor Emanuel. Lom
bardy has a superfice of 8,538 square
miles, and a population of 2,800,000 souls
Lombardy has hitherto been divided ad
ministratively into nine provinces or del
egations, viz: Milan, Pavia, Lodi, Cre-
ma, Cremona, Como, Mantua, Sondrio,
Brescia, and Bergamo. The fortified
towns of Mantua and Peschiera form part
of the province of Mantua. The fort
ress of Pezzighettone is comprised in the
province of Cremona. After the annex
ation of Lombardy to Piedmont, this
kingdom, the Island of Sardinia, will con
tain a superfice of 37,640 square miles,
with a population of 7,000,000. As re
gards territorial extent it will occupy a
tenth rank in Europe, and will come im
mediately after the kingdom of the Two
Sicilies, and stands before Portugal and
Bavaria. With respect to population.
Sardinia will stand in the ninth rank, on
a level with Naples, and will be above
Sweden and Norway, Belgium and Bavaria.-

Bonner of the Ledger.
In Bonner's last paper he speaks thus
of himself :
"We occasionally hear of individuals
who are 'part owners' of the Ledger, who
are 'editors' of the Ledger, or who 'fur
nished the capital to start the Ledger.'
With reference to these assertions, we
would state that there is only one propri
etor, and only one editor of the Ledger,
and that the 'capital' with which the Led
ger was started we earned as a composi
tor in a printing office. We never bor
rowed one dollar and never gave a note
in our life. What the Ledger is, it has
been made by downright, hard work. In
our editorial department, we employ some
six or eight of the best writers in the
country; but no one has the right, or
even claim the right, to insert a single
line in the columns of the Ledger, until it
passes through our hands, and if need be,
is altered or abated to suit our purpose.
