Entering Town Sites. -
The following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature of the
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioners As the proper persons to enter Town
Sites, la not recognised by the Commissioner
of the Land Ollice.
It Is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the United States Judges, can
be regarded as "Judges of the County Court."
As soon as that doubt is removed, notice wl.1
be given. In the mean time no entering of
towns not incorporated can be made.
A copy of the act of the last Lejrislatui e
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and, iiinMr the circumstances, the en
tries already made may be confirmed.

Send in vour orders soon, as we expect our
list for 1857 will reach 100,000 copies. The
best plan of subscribing is to send your money
direct to the publisher. Those who send
large amounts had better send drafts, but
notes will answer if draft cannot be pro
cured. W think we can show how much cheaper
it is to take the Lady' Book at Three Dol
lar than any other magazine at Two Dollar.
W wilt take a late number of both. Tb
Two Dollar Magazine contained 86 articles,
the Lady's Book 2.
The Tvvo'Dollar Magazine contained 32 en
gravings, the Lady's Book 5ti.
The Two Dollar Magazine contained 64 pa
ges, the Lady's Book 100.
Twenty-four "more engravings, twenty six
more articles, and thirty-six more pages,
nearly double the quantity. The lowest club
price of the Two Dollar Magazine is $1,25;
lowest club price of Lady's Book $1,07, only
42 cents difference in the price, which is three
and a half eent on each number, and for that
urn (three and a half cents), you receive
twenty-six more articles, twenty-four more
engravings, and thirty-six more pages month
ly certainly a very cheap three and a half
cents' worth. This view of the rase has
probably never before been presented, but it it
a true statement, which any lady can con
vince herself of bv comparing the two maga
