XIIC RAILRaAO BILL. ...
Wi publish io another column the
'Law which will govern the disposi
tion of our jrtiblic lands to aid in the
construction of railroads in this State.
It wilt be seen that this act contains
tome' rnrj- Wholesome prorisions.
Among others, it is provided that no
company shall receive more than one
hundred : thousand acres, while those
companies which have heretofore re
ceived land grants torn the General
Government receive only half this
amount: All companies competing for
these lands ara, by the. Act, compelled
to-flauh at least ten miles of road the
first year, and all the lands received by
any company must be sold in tracts not
larger than 160 acres. We hope and
honestly believe that this Law will do
much for developing the interior of our
State." We now. have no doubt that the
t - I - c . ..r
Burlington - and Missouri . River. Rail
Road Company will take hold of their
extension through this county and push
the building of their line westward with
alacrity. ; It is true that certain condi
tions are required to be fulfilled by the
citizens of this county before the Com-
roany commences work, but we have
too much confidence in the intelligence
of our people , to doubt their prompt
compliance with the requirements. Let
us be up and doing; let every condition
requisite to secure tbe road be pushed
to nomp'etion at once. The lethargy
and indolence which has prevailed so
long among us must give way to un
ceasing energy, and every man in the
county should consider himself a com
mittee of oneto make tbe commence
ment of work at the earliest moment
his 'chief object. As matters now
stand the Company cannot and will not
do anything; but let us finish our share
ot ine-worif, ana tney win pegm work
as soon as notified that .we have done

wheel at once and help push the ball
on to success. We must not hackle
and; argue over absurdities, but as a
whole, move to. win; and if we do so
we will have the cars running through
Cass County before mow flies next au

we will only do our share and for that
reason, with a full sense of what is re-
ouired of us. we should not let another
day pass' without fulfiling bur portion
of the labor necessary to secure thi:
great work to Cass county.
-' ' .STATE MEWS
I From the " Morning Chronicle rs
learn that B. M. Davenport, Esq.,
Real Estate Agent, proposes to start in
a few days on a tour of the Eastern
and Middle State, for the purpose of
recruiting a xolony of men who desire
to obtain fine land-j under the liberal
provisions of the Humestead Law.
Mr.' D." will present our advantages in
the form of lectnres to the people ' of
the' several localities he may visit, and
as his face : is be.ler than a letter of
recommendation, we doubt not be wiH
attract great attention . to this uew
State, and succeed largely., in his pro
posed enterprise.' . As"' a Real Es.ate
dealer he has become familiar with the
lands of the State, ; aed can ' render
great assistance to persons desirous of
making selections from: the; public
lands -! : ;

The season foe tranplanticg Trees
is fast approaching, and many in this
more extensively than heretofore. It
is a business we have had a good deal
of experience in, and if we may be al.
oived to give any advice It ;will be to
plant small trees. If we were going
to buy many tree to transplant, we
would rather take trees only 12 inches
high, than to get them 12 feet high at
the same price. It may do where only
a very few are transplanted, for shade,
in a door yard, to take large ones, pro
vided remarkable care is taken of
them; but even then, four times out of
five, (mail ones set out-at the same
time, will in three or four-years catch
up with ihe larger oaes, and will con
tinue to ' grow more ' rapidly. Very
small trees.' especially in Diamine
Groves, will not cost one tenth as much
as large ones; they will not require
one-tenth as much labor -to plant them,
and they will be ten times as likely to
grow. " Most men who . have tried the
experiment - of transplanting Cotton-
woods prefer those only a few inches
hijrh. ' -

Schools in.Maine, reports to the Legis-
it lure that there is a decrease, of 16.-
683 scholars between lha ages'of four

of 1858 - The decrease io . the past

20,000 Mr.; Johnson very uaturally
considers this decrease alarming; but,
as he cannot satisfactorily account for
it, he consoles himself with a series of
con undrums, such as: "Have we ceased
to to be a producing people?" "Are
the total forces expended in brain labor

"Are the modern fashionable criminal-
