The great ajony Is over blredihg Kansas
U no more border ruffian nnd free-stale
fanatic i have ressed their broils, and the
fog and smoke have rh-nred away, nnd people
art left to their '-sober socotul thought," We
propose to suggest n few farl of these two
great Territories, Irrespective of politic, but
In regrtJ to their relative advantages and die
ndvAnt n gon tlirlr inrrlls and demerit.
We desire the render, before going Into the
detail of facta purpose to present, to run
hi ey over the roup of the Northern State a.
S'art, If you please, a far east a Boston, In
'th land of steady habits," travel on to the.
city rf New York, th great metropolis rf the
New World, thence on through the many In
land cltlea of that Stale to Rnir.ilu, thence
long the line nt lake to Chicago, the grent-
lt wonder of the age, and atill on weal ward
"as th alar of empire takes lt way," and
bring up on the confine of civilization on
thewetern bank of the Missouri, and you
trike the very heart of the, new-ae tiled por
tion of Nebraska. Does not every one see
with half an eye, that tlie above deacrihed
route Is destined to he Tift great thoroughfare
across the continent, and that It must even
tually pass up the valley of ths Platte, terml
natirg on the shore of the Pacific. Does pot
the flood of emigration, the swarms of people
rushing headlong, by railroad, steamboat,
stage-coach, and finally, by express and cov
ered wagons, over this particular line, drive
one to the irresistible conclusion that this
particular route has some great natural ad
vantages, some uncommon incentive more at
tractive to the emigrant than any other route
in the whole of this mighty republic?
Again, this route has already the prestige
of success -an advantage over any other.
Kastern speculators, Western sharpers, horns
iteekrrs, and lastly, Old Bullion and n vast
majority of ths Congress of the United States,
have all along had the same opinion, and to
prove their professions of friendship to, and
the sincerity of their opinions of this route,
they have lent their aid by four large and
liberal grants, to four different Railroad Com
' panics, to secure the early completion of four
different Railroads, running parallol to each
other from the Mississippi west, and making
grand terminus on the Missouri river within
the short space of one hundred and twenty
mile, thus faciUUtiiijr by tho aUc! govern
ment the inundating and continually over
flowing tide of emigration. Will it be possi
ble, we ask, that when these railroads (now
in contemplation and actually located), are
completed, and thoir Iron horses are daily
rouralng their fiery way over the Trairle
State, bringing us within a ride of twenty
four hours to Chicago, for any other route to
nt'ract from this any considerable portion of
ither travel or transportation? Then, we
ran aafely add, that no portion of God'a crea
tion, however fair, fertile or productive, haa a
prospective future brighter than that of Ne
braska for a series of years to come. --
Nebraska haa attracted less attention since
Its organization than Kansas, because it had
nothing in Its political history so exciting as
to elicit the pecuniary aid and sympathy of
the people la tlie Eastern State in ita behalf,
but peaceably and steadily It has grown In
wealth and population for the past year be
yond the wildest expectation of Its earliest
aettlers. ' . -
Nebraska hag on her eastern border the
entire breadth of her Territory the Missouri
river, navigable at least nine months in the
year. Kansas Is touched by the Missouri
river only on a small apace of her Territory,
Nebraska is reached, as . we have shown
above, by four ' great . thoroughfares across
Iowa, directly from the East, while Kansas
may be reached alone by the Hannibal and
St.' Joseph Railroad, thus making the ingress
and Ygrssa to Nebraska far more convenient
than to Kansas. Nebraska lands, so far
famed for the depth of their black alluvial
oil, pure, clear, healthy water, vast and
beautiful prairies, dotted over with groves of
hard-wood timber, and unsurpassed in fertility
of soil, are all opened to be claimed and owned
by the actual settlor while on the other
hand, the choicest and beet of Kansas land
are taken up by Indian Reservations, and
many towns in Kansas are being slowly built
up on Indifferent eites, because the most fa
vorable points are in possession of tlie In
dian and are yet reserved, thus rendering the
future of these towns very uncertain for an
investment. 'But, in Nebraska, the whole
field being open for a preference la selection,
the town that are of any considerable im
portance ' are, a their unrivalled growth
Would seem to indicate, located where per
manency and perpetuity are added to natural
advantages. We venture the assertion, from
fact and personal observation, that the far
famed and much talked of city of Leaven
worth, In Kansas, with her blood-stained lots,
all covered with houses, cannot honestly
boast of a great an actual resident popula
tion, as many fine brick structure, a either
Nebraska city or Omaha, In Nebraska, and
lota in either of the two last-named cities are
commanding a good price, and are in much
greater demand than In the former place.
The future i what Nebraskians can dwXl
'upon with pleasing anticipations and most
exonerating hopes, with the addition of a
conscious certainty of success. For now,
while Jim Lane and Stringfellow are drinking
out of the tame bottle, sleeping In the fame
bed, and buying real estate with joint notea,
and the Border Ruffian have seen their long
cherished scheme grow pale and dim oa ac
count of the glorious light of the Sun of Lib
erty, and the Freedom Bhriekers have worn
their throa's hoarse, and spent thtr .i tl-
l.ir in Ihe futile r (Tort of electing one of the
Fremont's and Jesse, and while we keep In
continual remenitu snre the fact that Kansas
must be peopled (the enotteinent being over),
by the slow and tedious process of covered
wagon emigration, Nebraska will get by steam
car the go-aheadlllve, enterprising emigrants
from all Vaiikerdom. Calculate the vast dif
ference in the character and habit of that In
dustrious, ever-restless and cculatlve peo
ple, who will at once take up their line of
march from the East to the West, over one of
tlie above-named four routes, and with those
who are of a similar character In point of en
tcrprlae with the early aettlera of Arkansas,
and you cannot fail to aee that the contrast Is
so great, that It will not admit of any degree
of comparison. Why are so many emigrants
now coming from Kansas to Nebraska? Ia
It not berauae the best lands there are re
served, already settled or claimed by squads
of apeculator and sharpers?
The productiveness and fertility of the soil
of Nebraska, wo venture to say, is unrivalled
east of the Rocky Mountains. Seven years
ago people questioned the permanency of the
rise of property in Iowa, upon the western
hanks of the Mississippi, still, a time passed
on, large and flourishing cities sprung up, and
property kept steadily advancing and then,
as if by inngic, that spell was broken, and a
new field of speculation Is opened on tlie
western bank of th Missouri; and although
a certain fortune can be realized here in an
Incredible short apace of time for any honest
investment, still, property in eastern Iowa is
having a continual and successive rise. Now,
if this be true of property in Iowa, with such
a field as this Territory presents in competi
tion with It, what may not in reason be ex
pected of the future and ultimate destiny of
Nebraska? No new field can be laid out for
operation beyond this point, to come in com
petition with us. Hie Missouri slope of the
Rocky Mountains, with six hundred mile of
territory, will pour It trad and commerce
eastward as the tide of emigration ets west
ward, and ten years hence this beautiful
country will present to the eye of the traveler,
as he speeds his way to the Pacific, drawn by
the Iron horse, vast cultivated plain and
flourishing cities, swarming with life, activity,
energy and enterprise.
In view of ail theao facts, we cordially in
vite the enterprising and energetic of all
classes of community to come, examine, and
form heir opinions in regard to the iruth of
what we have asserted.
tiold, Gold, Ciold!
We would ndviso person in tho East
who design coining; West for tho purpose
of locntinj or purchasing property, to
bring: their ready menns in gold. It will
be much to their ad vantage in many re
spects. Eastern drafts, one year ago,
brought a premium hero ; but the liank
ers nnd Brokers of this Territory have a
largo surplus ou hand, and they are not
worth as much as Nebraska paper, and
are really below par.
Again, the Land Office receives no
thing but gold or land warrants, making
a much, greater demand for gold than be
fore the land office was opened for pre
emptions, and as the time is near at hand
for the public sale of lands, gold will
command a still greater premium.
Government 'will, of course, bliip off
largo amounts of gold which must be re
placed by nothing but gold. Then leave
your Eastern drafts and dirty filthy paper
rags, and bring wiih you the shining,
glittering, orange-colored metal, and it
will save you from a great amount of
vexation nnd trouble.
Astounding Mail ItobUerj.
The Greenfield Sentinol of the 24th
inst., published in Hancock county, Indi
ana, gives tho following particulars of the
robbery of the Dnyton mail, between
Cleveland and Indianapolis:
'Mail Robbed. On Tuesday night
last, the Mail Wagon, containing the
mail from the East, was stopped and the
bags removed. The robber's manner of
procuring it was entirely new. lie met
the Carrier about one half mile west of
Cumberland with a buggy, and told him
that he had purchased the right to carry
the mail from Cleveland to Indianapolis,
and to give the mail to him, which the
boy did upon th robber producing the
following order, purporting to be from
Mr. Johnson, the Contractor:
iHDi&KAroLis, April 21.
Usury Lt Mr. Brown have the
mail. I have sold out the road to him as
far as Cleveland. I want you to stay in
Cumberland until I come out. Stop at
the Anderson House ; don't tell any body
that I have sold out.
The boy acted as directed in the order.
The robber assisted him to unhitch his
horse. The bags have since been found
rifled of their contents. Due dilligence
is being used to arrest the guilty person.

f5T" We arc indebted to tho gentle
manly officers of the steamer Mm-ne-ha-ha,
for late St. Louis papers and other
items of news. 1
The Min-ne-ha-ha left St. Louis on
Saturday evening May 16ih, with full
trip of passengers and freight lay all
night below mouth of river discharged
300 tons of freight at different landings
below, and brought up about 400 tons to
this city, Omaha and the Bluffs. She
run but little at nights, lost twenty four
hours by the wind and passed on above
this city last Tuesday morning. This
boat is deservedly popular with the trav
' . Skinning.
The livery stable keepers in Omaha,
are very expert in this process. We had
the misfortune to be caught at that place
on Monday last, a wet rainy day, and
being under tho necessity of coming home
that evening, we went in search of a con
veyance. One man modestly asked eight
dollars to bring us ten miles. We final
ly succeeded n persuading another to bring
us for six. We adviso our friends never
to bo caught in that city on a rainy day,
for if he is a stranger, they will faithfully
conform with the example given in the
good old Book, and " take him iiu"
A nig Haul.
Last week, Mr. Carpenter, living near
this city, having made a new and strong
seine, made one draw at the mouth of
the Platte, and caught fifteen hundred
weight of rat fish six of them weighing
over 500 pounds. He realized 100,00
for the haul. This may be a common oc
currence in this country, but we confess it
astonished us to see so many monsters of
the finny tribe.
Another Steamer Snagged.
Tlie Steamer Sultan, struck a snag
alwut 10 o'clock on last Saturday morn

her to leak badly. She had at one time,

run her on a bar, and succeeded in stop

steamer Min-ne-ha-ha passed her, they
were engaged in building a side dock.

Entering Town Sites.
Til following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature of the
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioner as the proper person to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Land Office.
It is a question of doubt whether th Judge
of Probate, or the United 8tates Judge, can
be regarded a "Judge of th County Court."
As soon a that doubt I removed, notic will
b given. In the mean tim no entering of
towna not incorporated can be mad..
A copy of the act of the last Legislature
will be placed in the hand of the Commis
ioner, and, under th circumstance, th en
tries already made mat be confirmed.
