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 Tost Master. 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 ta future: 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 ollice. 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 not : 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 being examined. 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 jheir subscribers. 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 r'bidt. Oi tt Imp is guilty of some pretty seri ous jokes sometimes. He perpetrated the following lately: He snjs 'tlmf the above is the picture of a vehicle, in great demand lately, in a iieighlKu ing city, and that from the appearance of a certain Committee, ho thinks that the l.egiatore propose making a Territorial Farm shortly.' 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 much defaced. 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. Nebraska Fnrnirr. 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. l'roin Kansas. 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 Kansas. 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 man. Such a man (an officer), is to be found in the person of Col. Ch arles A. Man ners, U. S. Deputy-Surveyor for Ne braska, tho man who has protracted the Snrvpv of (ho Rip fin., t '.,,., nn.l &urves or tlio Dasc l;i.u, (u.l and Principal Meridians and Standard Par- allels for Nebraska.
