From the lat nuniher of this paper, we

1 Tlie officers who are selling the Dela-
1 ware Trust lands, in Kansas, made it
-3 known on the opening of the sales, that
all who had been driven from their claims
by the late disturbers of the peace, in that
Territory, would have their claims reserved
for the next sale, when they would have
I an opportunity of bidding them in. This
is un act of justice to those Squatters, and
reflects credit on all concerned.
We understand that B. W. Flhnas,
Esq., of the Brownsville Advertiser, has
made all the arrangements for the publi
cation of a monthly paper, under this title,
to be devoted solely to the interests of our
own Farmers. We wish the " Farmer"
Sale of the Delaware Trust Land.
The first three days of the sale of these
lands, there was 18,012 03-100 acres dis
posed of, realizing &3S,33u 77-100, aver
aging S2 12 per acre, ontheajiiouiit sold.
Of this amount 4- claims was held by
I Stjuatters, who received them at the gov-
eminent valuation, being from SI 25, to
SI 50 per acre.

to hand on Satarday last, when it should
have been received on Thursday and such
Jike annoyances are continually occurring,
and if the present 1'. M's, don't attend to
their duties better, they will have very
few mourners if the next Administration
