Mfrrrerrvtiif rqiilpnteiita o
Within tho lust eleven inoniln there lmve
Iccn no less than four very serious stenm
IkmiI disasters from conflnpration on our in
land waters, via: tho Northern Indiana on
Lake Etie, the Niagara ou Lako Michi
gan, the Louisiana uu the Gulf of Mexico,
and the Montreal on the St. Lawrence
river. Tho numher of lives lost by these
four disasters was not less than six or seven
hundred, and in each instance, it was evi
dent, tho chief cause of the loss of lift wns
th want of tho necessary preptraiions to
nve passengers when thus imperiled; and
at the present limit the majority of the bants
running on our lakes and rivers aro so in
sullkientlv provided for in this respect
that should a like calamity bcfnl somo of
them bevond tho reach of lioro or tho
rescuo of other vessels, tho elm noes for the
nfn deliverence from a watery cravo of
their human cargoes would bo utterly
There is a most criminal degree of reck
fewness exhibited in oiir general steam
boat system. Instead of beimr fully and
carefully arranged and equipped with every
possible means of preserving lives in case
nf disaster by fire, tho boats, as a general
thine, aro almost destitute of a single cf
fertual means of safety in such an eincr-
irenrv. Life preservers aro usually pro
tided, it is true; but generally, as is the case
of the Northern Indiana, they aro worth
Jess, boinff out of repair or in ft condition
that renders them entirely unavailable if
brought into sudden requisition. Some of
the boats carry with them ono or two smnll
life-boats, and others nono at all. We
havo been passenger on board of a large
first-class steamboat, where there were no
less than one hundred and fifty passengers,
on which there was not a single life boat,
and on which the means of saving life were
so insufficient that had the boat taken fire,
not ono of that large company of human
beings would have escaped, unless, fortu
nately, he was a good swimmer.
No passenger carrying steamboat ought
to be allowed to leave her wharf unless she
is thoroughly equipped with all the requi
site means of saving the lives of those who
entrust lhomnelves on board. Every
moveable article of furniture ought to be
life preserving; and before starting on a
trip tho life-preserving equipments ouyht
to be thoroughly overhauled and inspected,
bo os to insure their ellieiency in case of
need. She ought also U be provided with
good and safe life boats, enough to easily
accommodate all her passengers, however
large the number, and with a crew who have
humanity enough to have as much regard
for the safely of others ns for their own,
and who are sufficiently desciplined to un
derstand their business in the time of dan
ger. A boat thus equipped and managed
would bo safe; otherwise not.

Virtue In Mun.
We-lovc to believe thera is nioro niornl
ffooduess than depravity in human nature
When we see ono tear of pity drop from
tho eye, it gives more pleasure than would
the fniiliiM: of a cliainoiui. i here is gooa
uess real and unselfish in the heart
and wo havo seen it manifest itself to tho
inukini of a scene of sorrow the vestibule
of heaven. For him who is always pick
inir out flaws of his neighbor a character
we have no sympathy. Ho remind. us
f those birds who resort to tho dead and
decayed limbs to feast on worms. In the
characters of most men we shull find more
good than evil more kindness than hato
and why should we seek to pick out the
flaws and pass over the sterling trails of
character I We hold this to be the true doc
trine: to portray real goodness and hold it
up to the gaze and admiration of all, while
we suffer the evil to remain in the shade and
die. . It every piclum of human nature
were only pure and beautiful, we are in
clined to believe that we should have
thousands of such characters living and
loving around us.
Human Ele vntioii.
M I know," says Chunning, " but one
elevation of a human being, and that is
the elevation of the soul. Without this
it matters nothing where a man stands, or
what he possesses ; and with it he towers
he is one of God's nobility, no matter
what place he holds in the social scutes.
There are not different kinds of dignity
for different orders of men, but one and
ihe same to all. The only elevation of
the human being consists in the exercise,
growth and energy of the higher princi-
ties and powers of the soul. A bird may
e shot upwards to the skies by a foreign
force, but it rises in a true sense of the
word only when it spreads its own w ings,
and soars by its ojvn living power. So a
man may be thrust upwards in n conspic
uous place by outward accidents, but he
rises only so fur as he exerts himself and
expands his best faculties, and he ascends
tip, by a free effort, to a noble region of
thought and action.

The following corresponded will show
that the act of the last Legislature of the

or the J.aud umce.
It is a question of doubt whether Ihe Judges
of Probate, or the United States Judges, can
ne regarded as "Judges of the County Court."
Ai soon as that doubt is removed, notice will
be given. In the mean time iio entering of

OF THE LAND OFFICE, DATcd
Omaha, April 13, IS."7.
Under the "act of twenty-third May, 1811,"
the "Judges of the County Court" are given
the authority to enter "Town Sites." In this
Territory there are no such officers as "Judges
of the County Court," but the Legislature has
recognized the "County Comini8ioners" as
the proper persons to enter "Town Sites,"
and we have, in view of the spirit of the law,
permitted such entries, in the hope that it
will meet the approbation of the Department.
Very respectfully, your ohe.l'nt servant,
