A Piot latiiution from the Governor, for a

T'r fj:r"-;'on coli'criiiu; the loo i'ior
ie Capitol, seems !o It
one that now pervades llie iniivls of the
politic inns, and the people of Nebraska.- j
The number of sites anvious to Secure its
location, are six namely Ft, Kearny,
l'liittsmouih, P.el'eview.Om du City, Flor
ence fitid Ft. Caihoun. Fj ich of tlieso
places has it friends atid advocates, and
more or less hope of suc oss. The places
occupying the most central position and
having superior claims so far as posi'ioti
is concerned, are Belleview and Omaha
City. Bot ween these places, more than
any others, the contest for the location is
ttrot:g and sharp neither is expected to
yield in the least to the o her. Of the
two, we think Bellcv iew has claims to the
location, which far outweigh those of the
rival, that has spninp; upto seize the prize
w hich nature designed for herself. Her
claims to priority of settlement, and ol
being a more uocassiblc oiut, we think
cannol be ilispute 1. In the next place, it
cannot b'1 disputed that i:s claims are su
perior, when the grandeur at:d beauty of
the site itself is taken into account. Wt
claim for Belleview, the most central po
sition the most extensive and bountiful
site--',he best surrounding country the
best steamboat laii.lit.g the most abund
ant supply of wood, stone and other build
We claim also, (bat the location of the
Capitol at Belleview, would be more sat
isfactory to the people, than cither of the
other points specified, and particularly
Omaha City or Ft. Calhoun. A vole ol
ihe people, would give either of the re
maining points the jireft'erence over llie
two last mentioned. Florence is a pret
tier site for the Capitol, and has a better
landing than Omaha City, so has Plalts
moutli and Ft. Kearmy.
In addition to the ad unlayrs of Belle
view already enumerated, there is one.
w hich, if it was not as favorably si.uated
as it is in every other important point
would recommend it. in ihe choice, (at
least for the present,) of the Executive
and the. Legislature Assembly. The ad
vr.ntoges refcred to, arc suitable accom
modations for the Legislative Assembly
that is to be convened, which lire not to
be found at o'her places, s: well as pros
pective adv.iili.gcs, which others cannot
claim. We are aware of the trying posi
tion in which the Governor is placed, bir
we hope he will prove himself compter!
to decide this question in such a maimer,
as to satisfy the just demands of the peo
ple of this Territory, and to cam himself
a reputation for disinterestedness, which
shall enroll his name high in the niche o.
honor, and shelter himself from the wi'h
ering rebuke niih which the people wil
visit him, if their interests cie sacrificed
to his own.

line! reliable information are not able to
determine to which they had better direct

sively in both, and tiiken great pains to
ileeide this question for ourselves, we
have concluded to offer, for the benefit of
o'hors, the result of our investigations.
In the fust place. Nebraska is about
six timfs as larj;e as Ivinsa? containing
about (iuO.000 .sipinre miles, or enough
Territory for twelve first class States.
and embraceing within its limits all the
elements of wealth included within the
Stu'es between this and the Atlantic
ocean, and between Virginia and Maine.
Here in all conscience is
" Room enoitgh for all,
Doom in the green wood if not ifi the hall."
The most tlesirsble portion of the Ter
ritories is adjoining the States of Iowa
and Missouri, and until that is filled with
the whites, ihere will be no sufficient in
ducement to carry settlement far into the
interior. In Nebraska, the Indian title
lias been extinguished from the mouth of
the Big Sioux river down to the South
line, and about one hundred miles to the
West. Within this district there will be
but one small Indian reservation, and that
one near the North line; so that I he settler
rarsy secure locations along the line of
Iowa and Missouri, and be perfectly se
cure from theft and plunder by those poor
i unfortunate beings. Not so in Kansas.
I The best pnrt of that Territory is that
along the Missouri river, below Fort
Leavenworth, the lower valley of the
Kansas river ar.d alon? the State line of
Missouri, down to the Osage river. That
part of the dis'rict between Fort Leav
enworth and the Kansas river is reserved
by treaty for the use of Ihe Delaware and
Wyandot Indians, but notwithstanding
this, about one thousand squatters have
located upon it, and express a determina
tion to maintain their claims at all haz-z:rds-.
This is in violation of treaty
stipulations and must bring '.hem into col
lisiou witht'ie Government of the United
Slates, end must bring trou'jle, loss and
"confusion worse confounded.' Between
the Kansas and the Osige rivers, the
Shavvnees and a hulf dozen other trilies,
have made (heir reservations adjoining the
State of Missouri, and extending from
river to river. From this, it will be seen
that any settlement in this qu irtar, must
be mads between the border Indian and
the wild Indians of the plains, and will
be subject to a thousand troubles that a
civilized man never dreamed of, except
those that have experience in the affairs
of Indians, or the seven plagues of Egypt.
What remain of Kansas is dotted with
the reservations of the Iowus, Kiekapoos.
Pottowdt'omies, Otocs, Miisotirias, Stc.

LOCATIOSf 0 THK CAPITOL
Ma. EniToa: For the last twen'y
years I have been an observer of movements
of the people of various locations upon
questions iuvolving their vital interests.
and 1 have never yet known a whole com
munity to join in calling upon their agents
for iiifoumaiioti upon such a question, bu1
what they cither brought ii forth, or, made
those who withheld it fear the force of
their sovereign will.
In my late 'rip lo the different part cf

public gatherings, and I find that every
man, woman and child anxiously inquiring

All want to know where it is lo go, and
ihey want to know now. Largo amounts
of moniy are now being expended at
these various ligations iu anticipation ol
the Capitol. All but die, are chxinel
to disappointment, mid U the hsi ot con
siderable hUt.'i of money.
Is it right In keep a whole community
in such a 6tate of mspense, and thus
wasting their time ant! money ? All would
greatly prefer know ing now, So that they
might frave their money, even if they
