We hope the inclination that exis's in
the minds of claim-seekers, to secure the
best claims, will not be sufficiently strong
to tempt ihern lo invade the rights of orig
inal and rightful claimants.
The question arises here : who are the
rightful claimants, and by what principle
is the title to a claim to be tried!' The
right of discovery and actual oecupuncy,
evidently constitute a complete an 1 abso
lute right. The right of discovery, wiih
out an intention of actuid possession, does
not constitute a valid right, unless the
holder furnishes Borne equivalent to the
communily, equal in value, to that which
he withholds from it. .
If a capilalist holds a large amount 0!
....id in his possession, in such a way in to
,.:event its settlement, ho diminishes the
value of every other settlement in the
community, unless he furnishes (hat com
munity, an adequate equivalent for what
he withholds, in some form or other. If
he does this, the community of actual set
ters will have no right to cofiplain.
Settlers ought not to adopt a course
that will exclude capitalists; on the other
hand, capitalists ought not to adopt a joli
ey tending to exclude settlers. Give each
a chance, and then the growth and pros
peri'y of the country will be secured.

parts of a building, Some 39 feet long by

substantial, having three rooms on the
ground floor, with doors, windows, man

along with the worked flooring and ceiling
boards, are now ready for moving. Sills,

they might not be had cheaper on the
I have got the materials up in a style
which I supposed easiest and cheapest to
carry, & will present the appearance, when
completed, of neatness, bile it will afford
on a very short lime, a place convenient
for my family. 1 have no doubt that most
of the sickness of a new country has its
foundation, more with a reckless want of
preparing for the change, and having to
endure discomforts, many of which mas
be avoided by timely provision. Consc
quently, 1 would not t.eem it proper to
make any change westward that would
materially jeopardise heahh, and the vvanl
of comfortable shelter, I deem us impor
tant as suitable diet
Perhaps my arrangements, so far, are
premature, or in other words, "will not
pay," but I infercd otherwise from th
fact which your St. Louis advertisements
present, proposing to furnish lumber, ma
terials.c, and the absence of timber and
convenient mills in so new a country.

FauiT Taxes and Skbusbeht. One
qI the first things needing attention in a
new country, is the cultivation of fruit
trees and shrubbery. If this branch of
business is began at the very commence
ment of the settlement, as il should be, it
will not be long before the country will be
supplied with a necessary urticle of diet,
and a luxury as rare as any country can
boast of. This country is well adapted to
the cultivation of fruit trees. We have
never see young trees flourish better than
in the western pari of Iowa and Nebraska.
Wild fruit is abundant and good, but a
very superior hrticle can be produced by
a little labor from ihe cultivated varieties.
We esteem fruit a necessary article of Jiet
and not a mere luxury. We are satisfied
that if good wholesome fruit was freely
used, that those billions disorders that
sometimes manifest themselves in this
country would rarely if ever ln-ke their
We would therefore most respectfully
suggest, that those intending to come here
from fruit stocked countries, to come sup
plied wi'.h every variety of such fruit
trees as they may be enabled to procure,
and w hen they get here, make it their
first business to set them out and take care
of them. If this is done by every selller,
a great want will have been provided for
at the right time.
To those who are already here and yet
unprovided for in this respect, we would
refer ihern to Maj. George Hepner, of St.
Mary, who has an excellent nursery, con
taining a vast number and a goodly varie
ty of young grafted fruit trees, also shrub
bery, w hich lie will sell as chesp as can
be offered in western Iowa.
Maj. Hepner is intending to open a nnr-
kij in jM--uevicw 111 uie spring. e
hope he will do an extensive business in
this interesting and useful department of
hunian labor, and furnish 1:1 a lengthy cat
alogue of Ids nursery for adverliaerueii,
and thus advance not only his cwa iutcr-
