At preent, tho above subject is one-of much intercut to the citizens ttf this re gion, above and below, on either aide of thn river. It xeenm that a purchase of ten miles eaat and west, and oeTenil mile in widib, including the . present . itc of the fort and a portion of (irand Island' wan'inade tf tha Pawnees, sotiRihin lc than twenty jema ago, for 1 iniliU tj post j at a later period, it seem, that n addition to that purchase was made of nearly all or the whole of t'irand Inl and. A few years since, the amount or area thought necegrfa;- to hold an a mili tary reserve wa surveyed out and poaw aet at the corner, including enough tim ber for bair a dozen military posts. Moantime the Government survry of the land on tho aoutb of tho river took place, and in aectionizin, a fraction was left on tbe west' Bide or the Reserve line, up on which a 'certain party "filed" and proceeded to improve several stores wero built, and other building and im provement made adjoioing to the town ot Kearney city." I'pou the informa tion given by tho V. f. Marshal, that geroiiieit had relinquished all claim to. land north of the north bank of the Platta rivor, Beveral ranches worn -tablihed, and much money expended about the cnosslng, on this side. 'Just now, all seems to he commotion in regard to these several matters. Humor U current thai those merobanta aud busi ness men settled near, tho Reserve line are ordered by tho commaudinK officer ' to vninqse'.' as, I'nalo Sam's nbarp shooters want n little more land, ord must bare tbc fraction they are oecupy ing, and also that the ranchcros on this aide most "absquatulato" and give tho room they oecupy for a military stamp ing ground and what is still more im probable, that the commandant will prosecute all the citizens who have, or way, cut timber upon the whole length and breadth of Orand Island, which, by tlJl by, reaches from the fort away be low the German settlement. All this is more noi'J than probable and we do not believe lha gentlemanly commandant, Col. IKles, wF.l' make Invpropcr or ill advised 'movement in this'raattrr, neither will he disturb or distress the property of he pioneer citizen, unless peremto rilt'instruotod to de so by the Deport ment. V We. live reason to believe that the original military purchase extending to Ihe north bank of the Platte will give room, of ample width and length, for all requirements and necessities or the post, and that the department should relin- jfIMB lum mi i'll'- quisb any elaira to the other in behalf of .v j tii.a Vara tn mi rr!n n j thfi citlxens who came here to raise grain ana produee'other supplies both for sol diers and emigrants, and the Grand Isl and.
