Bird, O. Chapman turucd red
We understand from a reliable source
that Cbspman hit abandoned hit project
of contesting the teat of Judge Ferguson
in Congress, and turned bis attention to
retailing Garden Seedt, at ten eenti per
peper ; raid seeds were obtained by this
Chapman while in Congress as the prop
e.ty of hit miarepretented constituents in
Nebraska, and like the books which he had
etored away, which were the property of
the stt!ers of Nebraska, and which by o
resolution of Congress were turned orer
to Judge Ferguson, and. lince franked to
the Territory. He had the seeds boxed
and sent to bis residence in Ohio, nnd
now, since hard times have set in, is reap
ing his harvest of ton-cent pieces by re
tailing the property of Nebraskiani.

the Florence Courier, under dates of
March Hih, and 21st, says:
Dias Covbier: My present impres
sion is, that there will be no new Land
District created on the Platte Valley. I
find that the Secretary of the Interior,
the Commissioner of the General Land
Office, and the Chairmen of the Commit
tees on Public Lands in both house of
Congress, are opposed to the measure;
but are all of them strongly in favor of
removing the office from Omaha City to
the interior, at a distance of from forty
to sixty miles from the Missouri river, an
order for which will, in all probability, be
issued in a very short time, so that Ihe of
fice can be properly prepared jor tho Pub
lic Land Sales which are to uko place in
September next. ' At all events, I am
satisfied that the interest and convenience
of the nuiriefous settlers of the Platte;
Valley will not be i verlooked. Either a
new district will bo created, (which I have
no hojfe of,) tr the office will be removed

rival at our port of the Minnie Dtlle, from
Wyandott, loaded with flour. As this Is
the first boat which has ever bee it penal
ly built for the Kansas river trade by
Kansas men, it is but proper that she
should be noticed more in, detail. The
Minnie Belle was built at Paducah, Ky.,
u ider the superintenderiCe of Capt. Da
vis, late of the Packet Alttfni, which plied
between Alidii and St. Louis. Her ma
chinery was built in St. Louis. The
Minnie Belle is 125 feet in length, with
24 feet beam, and draws, when light,
nine inches df water, and carries 50 tons
oii 13 inches. She has a small cabin ca
pable of accommodating some fifteen 1 cT
twenty persdns, but was designed princi
pally lor freight.

to nuvigate the river several months in

situated eight miles below Manhattan. It
will be to the interest of Lawrence, as in
