Claim Association Meeting.
At a meeting: of the Bellovuo and Platte
Valley Claim Association, it was
Resolved, That the member be requested
to make a plat of their several claims, show
ing as near a possible, their connection with
the Government Survey, and also the streams
and roads that pass through or bound them,
o that a map may be made for the use of the
Association, and that such pl.its be handed to
the Secretary as soon as possible.
JOSEPH DYSON, President.
V. II. Cook, Secretary.
3" Last week in a manner we apolo
gised for the many imperfections that has
of late crept into our Tot Office, by say
ing that storekeepers were very busy on
account of the holidays, thot they could
not well spare the time necessary to assort
the mail in a proper manner; but it
seems that it was not the fact, but the want
of a perfect knowledge of the duties of
Now if we had the Laws and Regula
tions of the Department, wo would pub
lish them for hi3 instruction, and wo have
no doubt our subscribers would pardon us
for doing so (as it would crowd out other
matter,) as the benefits they might de
rive from his knowledge of them would
more than compensate for their loss, but
xvo will merely stale a little of what is
expected at the present time, as well as
First It is expected that Post Masters
will keep a supply of Postage slamps on
hand for the accommodation of the public.
Second It is expected that mails pass
ing through this town should find the P
M. ready to examine and assort them.
Third It is expected people do not
often ask for things they don't want, but
expect to get them if they ore in the
Fourthly It is expected that all papers
&c, with a person's name written thereon,
belongs to that individual, and not) to the
Post Office or Post Master.
And finally, it h expected that during
Poet Office hours that some one should
attend to those making enquiries.
Now as we have given a little of what
is expected, here is a few items that is
First It is not expected that people
like to stand at the Post Office door an
hour of a cold day waiting for admission.
Second It is nut expected thul iimils
shall (as they have done) pass by without
Third It is not expected that a paper
directed to Mr. A. belongs to Mr. B.
Fourth It is not expected that papers
published in Douglas county, Nebraska
Territory pay postage when delivered
through the Post Office in Bellevue to
Aud lastly, it is not expected that the
present P. M. has a life-lease on the office.
Now as regards the regular delivery of
the mail at the Post Offices, if we are not
very much mistaken, there is a law some
thing to this effect, that when a mail con
tractor fails to fulfil his contract, (he Post
Master has authority to despatch a mes
senger with the mail on the route of such
delinquent, and he is bound to make an
immediate report of such failure to the
Post Office Department at Washinirtou.
and we ask whether this has been done?
Kcho answers no !
It is extremely annoying to go for weeks
without a mail, and we will continue to
' ring the changes' until a healthier tone
is established in the department this side
of the ' Muddy,' and hope that our cotem
porarics will also keep the ball moving in
their several papers, and we know that a
'rhangu' to a livelier tune will stxui bo ihe

fiT" The Printers of the ( Jazette would
thank correspondents to write their com
munications with ink, as pencil marks rub
out by carriage ; they would also call at
tention to a small paragraph in the first
column of the third page, as attention to it
would save a great deal of trouble, and
perhaps disappointment. They also apolo
gize for any mistake Unit may occur in
the Legislative reports, as the copy was
Million's DoZlur Monthly.
We have received the January number
of this cheap and popular magazine, and
would advise our friends who love Poelry
or a good story, to subscribe for this maga
zine without delay.
In another column of this number will
be found the prospectus of a new paper
to be published in Nebraska, and devoted
solely to the interests of farmers in our
ferritory. We bespeak for the ' Fanner'
a welcome reception wherever it goes.
Our advices from that Territory con
firms the reports of the removal by the
President of a gang of worthies from office.
The list now comprises Marshal Donald
son, Judge Lccomptc, ihe notorious Clark,
Indian Agent of the Pottowattomics, who
is accused of killing Barber, and we have
every reason to believe that Calhoun,
Surveyor-General, has shared the same
fate for presiding at an indignation meet
ing held against CJov. ( 1 t.v n v, This is as
it should be, and Kansas will now have
beyond a doubt, justice done to the many
sufferers within her borders. Gov. (1 f.a 11 v
is the man long wanted for that Territory,
and he spoke truly when he said He
would make Kansas too hot to hold ban
dits and robbers.' Success attend the
noble Gov. in his administration, and we
have no doubt but ho will receive the ap
proval and thanks of all true squatters in
Whittbn kor the Bkm.kvue Gazette.
Mh. Fditou : I learn that wo are
likely to have the duties of Surveyor-
General for the Territories of Kansas
and Nebraska divided, and the office of
Surveyor-General for Nebraska estab
lished. This is a most desirable thing,
and such an Act of our Congress will be
most heartily endorsed by all concerned
in the prosperity of our young and beau
tiful Territory. It matters not what city
may derivo the benefits of the location of
said office. All will see and acknowledge
the benefits which will result to the peo
ple at large by the location of the olhce
anywhere in the Territory, particularly
thoso who are or wish to be doing busi
ness with said office. In view of the
prospects held up to us at the present
time, of having, through the energy of
our present Delegates, the present district
divided, can we not have a voice in the
selection of a suitable person to fill such
office? Surely wo can be heard; and
perhaps with sufficient effort on our part,
we may succeed in obtaining the appoint
ment of the man of our choice to that (to
us) important station.
In this connection permit me to sug
gest, that we want a man of integrity,
knowledge and ability sufficient to know
his duty, and decision of character suffi
cient to do it a man of good moral char
acter and one who exhibits a steady de
termination to do right an unflinching
Democrat, who is not changed by every
wind that blows, and of a mind sufficiently
well balanced aud capacious to take in the
necessities of, the whole country a prac
tical Surveyor, and an honest high-minded
Such a man (an officer), is to be found
