hat always heretofore, aim to be practical,
and to be of real and substantial advantage
to husbandry. His course, also, will continue
to be thoroughly independent, and wholly un

Entering Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
hat the act of the laat Leeiilatnre of the
Territory, designating the County Commit
toners as tne proper pertont to enter lows.
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Ind Office. ..
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 douht is removed, notice wi.i
be given. In the mean time no entering f
towns not incorporated can be made.
A copy of the act or the last Legislature
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and. under the circumstances, the en
tries already made iat be confirmed. '
