The Sioux City, as her name Implies, was

most udmiraby adapted to the wants of the

for business as well as the superiority of her
passenger accommodations, inferior to no

takes much pleasure in prcsei ting her to the
favorable consideiation of his frie-.ds and

that generous patronage for which he j8 i.

Tlie following correspondence will shov
that the act of the last Legislature of ths
Territory, designatinp the County Commis
sioners as the pioper persons to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Land Olfice.
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 wi.l

Omaha, April 15, 185T.
Under the "act of twenty-third May, 1814,"'
the "Judges of the County Court" are given,
the authority to enter "Town Sites." In this
Territory there are no such officers as "JudpfS
of the County Court," but the Legislature has.
recognized the "County Commissioners"
the proper persons to enter "Town Sites,'
and we have, in view of the spirit of the lavs
permitted such entries, in the hope that it
will meet the approbation of the Department
