Claim Association Meeting.
At a meeting of the Bellevue and Platte
Valley Claim Association, it was
Rrsotvr.n, That the members be requested
to make a plat of their several claims, show
ing as near as possible, their connection with
the Government Surveys, and also the streams
and roads that pass through or bound them,
so that a map may be made for the use of the
Association, and that such plain be handed to
the Secretary as soon as possible.

W. H. Cook, Secretary.
JfrcS" For the last two or three weeks,
the readers of the Gazette could find that
we were a little opposed to the manner
in which our Post-Office was conducted,
and in our last weeks' issue we stated
that there were certain things expected,
nd others not, which has raised the ire
of our very accommodating and honest (?)
P, M. so much that he is inclined to live
for the future up to the very letter of the
delivery law, and has made it a ride to
require an order from every person who
wishes a friend to bring his mail for him
from tha office, and has also . been
charging the authorship of the last article
to certain 'friends :of the pazctle. Now
as all the articles that have heretofore ap-
" peared in the paper originated in the offi
ce, we are opposed to that official charging
them to our friends, as we consider our
. selves perfectly responsible for all we
have heretofore said. On Tuesday last
we had the pleasure of an interview with
the Deputy Post-Master (for we would
have the citizens of Uellevue understand
that there is such an officer), of this city,
. who nobly came to the rescue of that
worthy official, and said many nice things,
for all of which we return our sincere
thanks. Personally, we have no animos
ity against either the P. M. or his Depu-
, ty.but officially, he (or they), receives our
disapprobation. We are aware that our
. P. M. has not the power to make postage
stamps, as it would be forgery, but we are
also awaro that it is his duty to keep a
supply on hand. He says that the PoSt-
. Office . Department is to Llame, as they
wrote several times to that Department
for stamps. ' Now we ask, is there one
(excepting the P. M.'s), in this commu
nity, who could for a moment believe that
the Department is entirely out of that ar
. tide. If that had been the case for such
a great length of time, would not some of
the Eastern papers stated the fact, for we
think that there has been none in this
' Port-Office for months, and all that time
we, the citizens of Bellevue, have been
: paying almost double postage.
Iu answer to our second charge for
that official say they are charges we
would say that he (or they), cannot deny
that the mail frequently passes without
being examined, for if we are not much
mistaken that thing occurred some three
As to the fourth, they know that they
frequently say that there is nothing, when,
on examination, they have found that
there were several papers there at the
To the fifth, we would say, that we
know of cases that persons have taken
, back matter belonging 16 others, which
has been given by them to such persons,
no doubt by mistake.
And ns to tho last, they also know that
very often persons have to wait a consid
erable length of time to gain admittance.
We could mention a great many abuses
( rhqa. ,we have us yet said nothing aliout,
hut (,Msider that for the present we have
given aWficient in detail, to show to the
citizens jjjat we aro determined to mak
the worthy P, M. more punctual in the
discharge (4 Jus fifl iI duties, and hope,

prnjimllo to assault, (ur citizens, who
feel themselves injured by tho Post-Ollice
arrangements of llellcvue, will take sides,

wrong, and that the public will xiistaiu

it unnecessary to enter into an argument to
convince the farming community in this Ter

natural adaptation of our soil and climate to
Agricultural pursuits, known to all who have

for entering upon this enterprise. We have
