Onr Scliool Lands,
The County Commissioners appointed
Hon. D. C. Sanders, Hon. J. P. Crother,
nnd J. Q. A. Smith appraisers of our
Sthool Lands. By a constitutional pro
vision these lands cannot be sold for less
than five dollars per acre. The Land
Commissioner of the State has reported
to the County Clerk of this county that
there are nine thousand and seventy-one
acres of these lands in this county. We
think that the Commissioner has under
estimated the same. We have at least
twenty-two whole sections and a part cf
one more, which should give us at least
fourteen thousand acres. Why the com
missioner was unable to find this latter
number of acres we do not know, we
suppose perhaps that the nearly four
sections lying within the Indian reserva
tion may account for a portion of it.
Now it becomes the duty of the three
appraisers to estimate and appraise the
value of the prairie land in tracts not ex
ceeding forty acres, and the timber land
in tracts not exceeding ten acres, a;id
make due return thereof promptly to the
County Clerk. They are al?o required
to estimate the value of all improvements.
They shall also assess all damages done
to and waste committed on each tract as
appraised. They shall itemize the im
provements, and give the value of each.
The County Clerk shall sell these
lands at public auction for not less than
seven dollars per acre in addition to the
value of the improvements, and for not
Jess than the appraisement, by giving
teventy days notice cf the time and place
of sale. So we see that all lands sold
must bring seven dollars per acre plus
the diference between seven dollars and
the appraised value (if more than'seven
dollars), plus the value of the improve
ments. Any occupant of schcel lands may re
move his improvements at any time with
in six months, if he prefers to do so
rather than accept the appraised value
thereof ; or if they buy the land , at the
eaieuhey are not required to pay the ap
praised value of the improvements. It
another buys it, then the County Treas
urer is required to pay the appraised
value of the improvement to the person
occupying the land when sold.
Purchasers of school lands must pay
down on prairie land one-tenth, and on
timber land one-half of the purchase
money, and must give a note for ballance
payable January 1SS0, bearing interest
payable annually in advance on the first
day of January of each year at t en per
cent, per annum. The note jnust be in
dorsed by two free holders of the county,
and one additional endorser for each five
hundred dollars; and incase of non-payment
of principal or interest at maturity,
the land and improvementsathereon be
come the property of the State. The
purchaser is to receive title in fee only
upon full payment.
If lands are not sold when offered by
the Clerk, then it becomes the duty of
the County Commissioners to lease such
lands for a term not exceeding twenty
five years, by the lese paying annually
eir per cent, upon the appraised value.
The lands to be 8ppraied every five
years during the term cf the lease.
. We call the attention of our citizen
aoldiera to the following letter just re
ceived from, the Second Auditor of the
treasury department at Wahington, which
hows how anxiously the department is
to satisfy all; that every thing is being
done that can be to adjust your claims :

: Sir: In addition to the ordinary busi
nessof this Office, there are on file about
210,000 inquiries from the Paymaster
General in relation to the claims of
discharged soldiers (white) for the ad
ditional bounty under the Act of July 2S,
1S66, of which over 153,000 have been
received since October 1, 1S57. to which
more than 1000 replies are daily fur
nish the Paymaster General.
These inquiries are not registered, and
no action is taken on them until they
have been reached for examination,
when they are disposed of as rapidly as
possible, in regular order by regiments
according to the date of reception at this
Office, and no case can be made special.
No replies can therefore be given by
this Office to the numerous inquiries of
claimants and their agents in relation to cases.

Richardson. County.
This is one of the largest counties in
the State of Nebraska. It is about eigh
teen by thirty miles square. It is watered
by the Great Nemaha and its tributaries,
and is bounded on the east by the Mis
souri river. The south branch or the
Great Nemaha enters the county six
miles north of the south line, and the
north branch enters the county on the
north line near the north-west corner ;
from thence thev run together a short
distance south of the centre of the county
where they unite, and from thence take
an easterly course through the county to
the Missouri river. The Muddy creek
runs through the county ten miles west
of and nearly parallel with the Missouri
river, and empties into the Great Ne
maha. These streams have branches on
either side which reach nearly every
portion of the county, so that there is no
considerable section of country not sup
plied by living water. There is good
timber on all these streams, sufficient for
the present and prospective wants of the
county. Water power, where improved,
is sufficient for an immense amount of
machinery. The beet and the thickest
vein of coal in the State has been found
in this county, near the south-east corner.
The nost reliable information we have
upon the subject states it as about twenty
two inches thick. Many affirm that
somebody measured a vein of four feet
thick. This somebody we could not find
in Rulo, where he was said to live,
though many had heard of him, and
thought it was a certain blacksmith on
the corner. This blacksmith had heard
that there was such a vein, but never
measured it. There is no doubt of the
existance of the coal in abundance.
Rulo and Arago, on the Missouri
river, are large, thriving, business towns,
and are the entrepots fcr all the ship
ping to and from the county. Falls City,
the county seat, situated midway between
the Nemaha and the Muddy, a little
south and east of the centre of the county,
and Salem a; the confluence of the two
branches of the Nemaha, and atone time
the county seat of the county, ate the
only interior towns cf much importance.
This county commenced its first settle
ments near fifteen years ago. The lar
ger portions of her lands ore owned by
actual settlers, and were entered, pre
empted or taken as homesteads before
the great speculation in western lands
swept its baneful hand over the State of
Corn, wheat, hogs and cattle are the
principle productions for export. Many
of the farmers have adopted the policy
of feeding their corn to cattle and hogs,
and find that their corn in that way pays
them more to the bushel than they can
realize by sale to the grain buyers. The
county now contains a population of
about eight thousand, three-fourths of
whom are living by farming. School
houses are frequent, and a gocd degree
of interest is manifested in educational
matters. The Methodist, Christian and
Presbyterian societies have stated preach
ing at various points throughout the
county, consequently we find the people
moral, intelligent and refined.
The Rulo Register, a weekly newspa
per, is printed at Rulo, and the Southern
JWbraskian is a good and reliable paper
printed at Arago. There is also a Ger
man paper printed at Arago, which all
of our German readers, and citizens
would do well to subscribe for. These
are the only papers printed in the county,
and from the copies we saw in the fami
lies where we had occasion to call, we
should judge that they receive a liberal
Richardson county is one of the best
in the State for agricultural, manufac
turing and commercial purposes. Good
unimproved land may still be had at from
three to eight dollars per acre, well lo
cated to water, limber and settlements.
Improved farms are occasionally offered
at moderate prices.

ment of the assessment of the personal
and real estate of this county for the

Editors Advertiser: Sirs: As
the meteorological phenomena witnessed
in Johnson County on the evening of
May 1st has excited a good deal of in
terest, I will attempt to give, through
your columns, a description of it as it
appeared to me.
During the afternoon I was traveling
in the west part of Nemaha County, on
the road, leading from Neb. City to Ta
ble Rock. Appearances indicated rain.
Thunder clouds were seen in the distance
Clouds south-west of St. Frederick be
gan to consolidate and combine into one.
It was evident there would be a shower
wherever it passed. It was moving in a
north east direction, and as it was ap
proaching me, I sought temporary shel
ter. But the cloud suddenly changed its
course, moving offtowards the east, grow
ing larger and blacker as it went. It
was this cloud from which so much rain
and hail fell at Brownville on that day.
In it electricity seemed unusually active,
and the peculiar display of lightening was
beautiful and sublime. But I had yet to
see the most extraordinary part of the
afternoon's phenomna. A small frag
ment broke off from this cloud and re
mained nearly stationary in the west, but
increased rapidly in size. It belonged
to that class of clouds which meteorolo
gists term "Sirro-Cumulous." Sudden
ly I heard thunder, which I thought hard
ly could come from so small a cloud, but
it was qnickly repeated, and very soon
lightning became frequent. The cloud
now had become long and narrow, the
length being ten times greater than the
breadth, and extended from the zenith
half way to the western hornzon. I
was afraid of the lightening, as my head
was the highest object on the high prairie;
and as it had also commenced raining,
I hurried to the nearest house, it being
the residence of Mr. Frederick Studheit.
But the growth of this singular cloud
from apparently nothing had arroused my
curiosity, and I continued to watch it.
I had not been here five minutes until
I noticed apparently near the west end
cf the cloud an inverted cone approach
ing the earth. I called the attention of
the inmates of the house to it, telling
them I thought it was forming a regular
"Water Spout. :' Soon a column or cyl
inder began to rise from the earth, di
rectly under the cone. It appeared to
be hollow, the center seeming light and
transparent, while the sides were much
darker. Around this, near the ground,
was a cloud or vapor, in boiling motion,
resembling smoke rising from a distant
prairie fire. The descending cone was
a dense, deep blue, or black. It pene
trated the center of the cylinder, and
without touching the sides, gradually ex
tended to the ground. About the same
moment the ascending column reached
the clouds. The sides then closed up
forming a dense pillar or band connect
ing heaven and earth. In a few minutes
after its formation was complete it be
gan slowly to move towards the N. E.
The center moving faster than the ends,
it gradualy became of a semi-circular
shape. At length it began to grow nar
row, changing color from dark to grey,
and from pale to dark, sometimes swel
ling out, in places, as if it was an indi-an-rubber
tube. Finally the end seem
ed to become detached from the earth
and swung back in the air in an opposite
direction from that in which the cloud
was moving, appearing attenuated or
thread-like, slightly resembling the tail
of a kite. There were two currents in
the column or "Water Spout," moving
with great velocity, in opposite direc
tions. At times, from my distance, I
could see this motion, especially along
the edges near the cloud ; but lower the
the outlines were so uniform the motion
could scarcely be seen. Just previous
to its swinging round into the air, the
end at the earth would bieak loose and
catch again, as if dragging on the ground.
During this time another Water Spout
had been formed in cljse proximity to
the first, and before it disappeared an
other, and then still another ; making
four in all formed in succession, but not
more than two of them existing at any
one time. They all moved a considera
ble distance from the place where they
were formed before they disappeared.
The last two moving in opposite direc
tions, crossed each other. They had not
entirely disappeared like their predeces
sors, when dusk and heavy rain obscured
them from view. I glanced at my watch
when I observed the first one. It was
45 minutes past five. Whan the last
were obscured by rain it was half past
six. To those watching, the time seem
ed much longer. The four in their form
ation and movements were similar, but
not exactly alike. The third one was
fully fifteen minute8 forming beforo any
thing could be seen rising from the
ground, and then it was at first so trans
parent one could hardly tell whether he
sawanythine, or whether it was all im
agination. The only difference between
it aud the surrounding air,' it seemed
lighter and clearer more like glass.
But it ultimately formed the same dark
colored band as the others. From first
to last their appearance was constantly
changing, reminding the beholder of the
ever-varying phases cf aurora-borealis.
I have always delighted in watching dis
plays of lightening, whirlwinds, "northern-lights,"
and meteoric showers, but
I never beheld any natural phenomenon
that appeared half so wonderful as this.
To those who saw it from the opposite
direction that is from the west side in
Gage County and part of Johnson, its
beau'.v was increased ten-fold by the ap
pearance of a brilliant rainbow. In one
locality the center or the bow crossea
the Water Spout at right angles, form
ing a cross in the heavens, which to ma
ny would seem doubly emblematic, es
pecially as this very day had been desig
nated bv a remnant of Millerites as the
time set by the prophecy's of Daniel for
the final destruction of the world.
The next day, business kept me in the
neighborhood in which I was the day be
fore, and I could learn nothing as to
the location or character cf the Vvater
Spouts. So I concluded to divert my
course from my contemplated route.
I found, on going into Johnson Coun
ty that the four Water Spouts had all
been formed within three or four miles
of each other, and had each travelled
three or four miles. The first one had
started near Strawn's Mill ou the Great
Nemaha.and had passed about three miles
up the valley of that stream, crossing it
several times, and twice keeping its bed
for several rods. Every fence and tree
in its way it destroyed. They told me
that even fence posts had been lifted out
of the ground by it. But I failed to see
this, perhaps because there were no posts
alons: the route where I traveled, and I
followed its track for several miles. The
tops and limbs of every tree were lorn
off, and even the stumps of some of them
partially barked. Some very large trees
were twisted off at the ground, but most
generally the stumps were from twenty
to thirty feel high. When it struck the
Nemaha the citizens thought it suckrd
ud all the water, and also the mud and
pebbles from ihe bottom. Pebbles. I
was told, fell along with ram and hail,
at the houses of Mr Webb and Mr
Weaver. The water taken up by one
current, would, much of it, be caught at
different heights by the downward cur
rent, and thrown with great force to the
Ground. Iudeed there seemfd lo be tor
rtrnts of water at times, forced down
ward sufficientVin places, to make de
pressions or ditches in the ground. The
rapid spiral motion or the two currents,
appeared lo those near it like the move
ments of complex machinery, and the
roarinz was heard around for ten miles.
One man said he saw where a boulder
which would weigh a hundred pounds
had been moved over twenty feet. An
other Spout passed so near a house as to
take the roof on, and another struck a
wagon, and carried most of it entirely
away, but portions of the wheels were
found, with every spoke broken. One
tire was also found broken into four piec
es, Must of the limbs which I saw were
lying around the roots of the trees as if
broken by the downward current, liail
fell in the vicinity as large a3 hens eegs.
The cloud extended from St. Freder
ic to Crab Orchard. The Water Spouts
were seen for 4J miles in each direction.

A Washington special to night says
that Senator Grimes in his remarks on
the secret session of the Senate to-day
stated it as his opinion that Stanton's
case was not covered by the tenure of
office act, and argued that under the act
of 17S9 the President had the right to
remove h'tm. He also declared that the
Senate not being in session at the lime
did not effect ihe case. He freely ac
quitted the President of all idea of con
spiracy and of ell intention to violate ihe
constitution or laws of the United States.
Mr. Grimes said, laying aside all politi
cal feeling, he could not in his judicial
capacity vote for the conviction of ihe
respondent. He thought a verdict for
the impeachers would establish a prece
dent for getting rid of an unacceptable
Washiitgto, May 11.
While the Senate was in secret session
great crowds were in the loby anxious to
know the course of debate inside ; subse
quent inquiries made of all those who
were supposed to know anything of mat

Trumbulll and Fessenden had clearly ex
pressed themselves against the conviction
of the President, while Henderson was
againsr the impeachment articles except
the Uth; Sherman and Howe according
to general accord supported only ihe 2d,
3d. 4th, 7th, and 11th articles ; Edmunds,
Williams and Morrel will support all the
ariieles while Hendricks, Davis, Johnson
and Dixon opposed them."
To-morrow has been set for the trial of
Surratl and the prosecution are already
having witnesses summoned. Not cer
tain that the case will be tried as coun
sel may show good reason for contin

11:30 to-morrow, lo sit with open doors.
Agreed to.
It is generally conceded the 1st article
of impeachment will not be agreed to.
