' The Emigration bill provides for a

W were pleae4 this week to re

early settler of Browuville, .Mr. Wm.
L. FERausox. We found 3Ir. F.
here when we came, nearly fifteen
3-ears ago. He entered the first tract
of land entered in this State, then
Territory; the piece of land now bound
by Mr. Hoadley, und known as
South Brownville. He has been all
over the Western Territories since
that time, and is now engaged In min
ing at Ellsworth, Nevada. He pre
sents us, for our geological cabinet,
exceedingly rich specimens of 6llver
quartz, and floar-spar, from American
Flag silver mines, Ellsworth, Nevada.
The specimens of silver quartz Is said
to be worth at the rate of $3,000 per
ton. Mr, F. is one of the owners of

meetings at present.
Mr. Revei.s, the colored Senator

ception room, will know what a deal
of button-holing he will escape by
this course. It Is said further, that
he advocates the removal of all polit

I take this first opportupty to com

My decision in le case was arrived
at after a somewhat protracted con
sideration during the summer of 18C9.
The objectf that consideration wa
the adotiou of such regulations to
guid County Superintendents as
Uvouiu oesi advance tne interests or
education in the State, and would not
conflict with the plain letter of the
law. The decision at which I arrived
was this :
County Superintendents and School
Boards should treat as valid the cer
tificate issued to any person who 4,has
attended said institution twenty-two
weeks," and has been 41 examined In
the studies required by the Board in
6uch manner a3 may be (has been)
prescribed," according to the provi
sions ofSec.ll of "an act to locate, en
dow and establish a State Norma'
School,". approved June 20, 1S67. r
I abo decided that such certificate
must be subject to revocation by coun
ty Superintendents, under the provi
sion of See. 82 of 44 An Act To Estab
lish a System of Public Instruction
for the Stato of Nebraska." Approved
Feb. 1SG0. .-, ...
. The reasons which led to this deci
sion may be briefly stated thus :
1st, The prevailing custom in other
2d. It will advance the interests of
the Normal School.
3d. It will induce teachers to make
special preparation for their work.
4th. The power of a State institu
tion to issue certificates which are
made valid In all counties, is not with
drawn by simply conferring similar
and less extensive power on a local
5th. The power of the Board of Ed
ucation to grant certificates is not in
consistent with the power vested in
the County Superintendents.
6th. The Interests of the Schools re
quire that all certificates be subject to
revocation. The Board of Education
can not keep a supervision of the Nor
mal School graduates lii the distant
7th. The spscific language of Sec.
82, of the School Law: 44 The County
Superintendent may revoke any

which would have justified the with
holding thereof," tc,

The testimony also shows that there
has been about $4,000 drawn in excess
of the work done and material fur
nished on the contrac t for the erection
of the Asylum, but in the opinion of
lur. Hunt, one or your committee,
who is - no ; experienced builder
and contractor, who examined said
work, and material furnished, the
State can suffer in no material inter
est so far as the contract for

. . We find that lots and lands bid ofif
at the public sales in 1S69, in the ag
gregatesum of near $150,000, yet re
main indebted to tne bidders to whom
they were struck off. That the money
due thereon has not been paid to the
wennu iurtner mat tne commis
sioners never promised to such pur
chasers anv time on said sales.
The testimony fully establishes that
the advertising for bids, and the let
ting of the contracts for both these
buildings, were conducted in a fair
and impartial manner; that there was
no favoritism shown to any one; that
no person whatever had any advan
tage over. others In bidding for the
contracts of either building, and that
the Commissioners, nor anv of them.
Ecceived any consideration whatever
forsftwarding the contracts to the par
ties who obtained them.
That the eommissioiersat the public
sale of lots and lands put forth all
proper means to further the interests
and advance the welfare of the btate,
by selling the lots and lands at the
best prices; that but few lots were
sold otherwise than at public sale, and
those were soul to rectify errors in
numbers of lots and mistakes made in
the hurry of bidding at the sales, and
in some instances to encourage the
interests of Lincoln, and thereby fur
ther the public benefit. We further
find from the testimony before us that
the commissioners had no individual
interest in the letting of contracts for
the erection of public buildings as in
the sale of lots and lands, other than
any citizen of . Lincoln and of the
State. . '
