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, is not recognized by tbe Commissioner
of the Land Office.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the United States Judges, can
be regarded as "Judgea of the County Court."
As soon as that doubt ia removed, notice wi.l
be given. In the mean time no entering of
towns not incorporated can be made.
A copy of the act of the last Legislating
will be placed in the hands of tha Commis
sioner, and. under the circumstances, the en
tries already made mat be confirmed.

Omaha, April 15, 1857.
Under the "act of twenty-third May,1844,
the "Judgea 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 tha Legislature has
recognized the "County Commissioners" 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.
