Among all the estab Mehments which had suspended, the house of Wells, Yargo k Co. was the only one that had resumed busi mi*. From the statement of the affair* of tbis firm, Made February 27, 1866, it appears that their assets amounted to $400,407, making a balance, over and ?tore all liabilities, of $103,473. Indeed, it could not justly be said that they have suspended , for in ull towns of the interior, except San Francisco, Sacramento, Marysville, Nevada and Diamond Springs, Wells, Fargo & Co. have paid certificates of deposit as fast as they were presented. On the 27th of February Adams k Co. applied for the toaefit of the insolvent act. From the statemonts filed in the Fourth District Court (which it is said may to looked npon as perfectly correct as far as the business transactions of the firm in the city of San Francisco are ?oncerned,) it appears that their total assets amount to $1,761,19249 and their liabilities to $1,640,288 25, leaving a balance of assets of $110,904 24. Thus the liabilities amount to nearly the same sum as the assets, but from the natnre of the latter, it is considered more than pro toble that no more than fifty per cent on the whole amount will be realized. Our coi respondent, writing from San Francisco on the 1st of March, says that the failure of Adams k Co. is considered a very bad one, and evidences of their indebtedness will scarcely command twenty- five cents on the dollar. Page, Bacon & Co. hare in id* a st t'.cment of their affairs, but it has b<eu itvert-Iy criticised and is consid ?fed una>it:(factory by some. Arrangements are being made to give this house the t mi tb*y desired. A large aumber cf nervosa of if puttd weal .It hive signed a deed by which they lecrae liable for upwards of a million of doii&r* for Page, Bacon k Co 'n debts, in the event of their creditors allowing them to pay their depositors in four equal instalments at two, four, six and eigbt months date, with interest at one per cent a monlh. Tbe great body of the creditors will, it is said, accede to these terms. little is an yet known about the alTalrs of Wright & Oo. Robinson k Co. propose to pay 37 K cent!* on .the dollar ia ninety days. Reed k Co., Sacramento bankers, have applied for the benefit of the insolvent act, much to the astonishment of creditors, as their embarrassment waa thought to be but temporary. The long looked for rain had come at last, and tbe miners and the agriculturists will gain thousands whero they have lost hundreds by the bank fatlcres. It had mined steadily for nearly forty eight hours, and, judg ing from the accounts already received, we are Isd to be ?eve it has extended all through California. The news from Kern river is of an exciting character The accounts from the newly discovered diggings repro sent the miners as doing remarkably well, some say avera|ing $10 to $20 per day. The steamers for San Pe dro?the nearest point of disembarkation for the mines go down crowded with passengers. Oar San Francisco Correspondence. Ban Framcihoo, Feb. 28, 1355. Tie Financial Panic? The Affair i of 1'ari *, Bacon <? Co. ? The Jlaint? Mining Operation ? Mining l'rot pectt. The last fortnight has been a period of unparalleled ex citement and feverish anxiety throughout the whole (State; and business of all kinds bus received a whack which will be felt for some tine to come. The hou*e of PW, Dacon & Co. had been so tirmly established In the public confidence, and its liberal and honorable mode of conducting business had gained so strong a hold upon the esteem of the people, that, when It was announced their door* were closed, the whole oommunity was ap palled ai if come great and overwhelming calamity had suddenly overtaken us. The ijuestton was In every one's ?xrath, "What la to be done now?" "Who U worthy of crodlt, if Page, I lac hi k Co. are not?" Business was completely paralysed, and every where might be seen anxious faces and excited cnwdN, discussing earnestly the gloomy aspect of affairs. But as soon as time was ?flowed tor a little cool reflection, a great re ac tion took place, and the public became' satisQed that the house was not only perfectly solvent, hat that its suspension was entirely the re sult of untoward circumstances over which tbey had no control, and which the greatest prudence ecu Id net have foreseen. When It* actual condition was knows, its friends rallied around it, and urged that steps at sdc* be taken for a speedy resumption. Tim suspension occurred on Thursday, the i2d, and on FrKlay oad Saturday there was an intense desire that an ex hibit sbonld be made of its alfairs, with a view to ao im. ?Mdtats resumption if ths condition of the house was as favorable as it was supposed to be. The steamer via Nicaragua was to leave on the follow'ng, Monday, at 9 ?'clock A. M.. and every one was anxious that she should take with her the gratifying intelligence that this old and favorite house still retained the public con fidence, and would resume buMneis In a few day*. A meeting of the creditors was accordingly called for '1 o'clock P. If. oa Sunday, the urgency of the occasion being considered a sufficient justification for iavaling ths saactlty of the Pabbath. At the appointed hour a 4sase throng assembled; but the crowd was so great that, for the dispatch of business, it was deemed ad visable to admit only creditors into the building. When the meeting was organiied a solemn stillness prevailed, all, apparently, being deeply impressed with the impor tance of the occasion. About this time, D. D. Page, Es<i., the senior partner of the house, entered the room, and, as he advanced through the crowd was warmly greeted with applause, as an evidence of ths popular sympathy. Year readers will have doubtle<s seen the publ shed proceeding i of this meeting, and therefore I nee] not re capitulate them. But the published report was a very Meagre epitome of what was said and done, and will convey to the public but a faint impression of the enthu siasm which prevailed, and of the earnest desire which was evinced that the house rhoald at once resumsbu stneee Indeed, the whole proceeding was a high com pliment to the members of the house, an l evinced a Just appreciation of the honorable conduct which hasmtrsel the Arm of Page. Baron k Co., in all Its extensive deal tags with the public during the last live years. The m?eting wss composed exclusively of their ere ditors and, as a general thin;, creditors are not the most leaient and forbearing -lass of people. Ilut on this occasion they seemed to vie with eacn oth?r In acts of liberality ; and when, in the course of the proceedings, Mr. I). D, Pave, with his manly faie, aro-e to make some explanations ti tho meeting, he was greeted with a storm of applause. The oil rtieman is no or stor in a technical sense, but when, his plain, straightforward, simple, earnest manner, he detailed the eirriitnstftn-tes which h-ought this tem porary calamity upon bis house, and pledged his word that, aside from all the assets of tbe house, his private fortune was amply sufllcl#nt to meet all it* liabilities, and sbonld be scrupulously applied f0r that purpose, If necessary, his words carried conviction to every mind, ft was at oaoe proposed, by a gentleman preeent, that ths friends sf tbo honse should guarantee the eertlfleate* proposed to be issued to the depositors, an l said if tha movement was approved he would guarantee them to tbe amount of $40,000, The proposition was received wtth acclamation, a ad from all parte of tha room per ,0ns spoke out olhriBf to nnlte In the guaranty, several ainuof >60,000 as the sum /or Which tbey wo old Mod themselves respectively: othcn 980,000, 920,000, ud so on, down to 910,000. Tne |OMinty ?? at ones drawn op in due form, and before the meeting adjourned wan H'gned by capital ste, subscribing in the HOP'S*1* 0De Bullion and fifty thousand dollars. Tbese guaranteed are amongst the wca.tbleot and moat respectable of oar ropu lation; and whan it is remembered, that they wars them selves already creditors of the house, thin act of liberality on their part was the strongest evidence they could give of thetr perfect confidence, not only in tho solvency of the firm, but in its integrity and honorable conduct. A large numb* r of the leaJing merchant* then announced to the meeting that they would receive the oertificatcs at par, in payment for Hale* of goods. In short, the whole affair wan a most flattering testimonial to this pop liar house. and was a striking illustration of the confldeoc) which is inspired by ? long and strict adherence to mer cantile honor and good faith. Their transactions have been so extensive, and their course of dealing so hberal and just, whilst the private fortune of Mr. l'age was known to be to ample, that it if not surprising they en joyed the public contldenoe to an extraordinary degree : and when it was announced that they had been compelled to sutpend, there were no querulous complaint*, no sus picions of unfairness, as is usual In sucb eases; on the contrary, there was a profound sympathy for them in their sudden calamity, and an intense desire that they migbt be able to resume immediately, which feeling was icorit palpably exhibited at the meeting of creditors. 1 baTe enmmer ted at such length on these transac tions, because tliis firm bus been so identified with the prosperity and growth of California, and has exerted ao powerful an influence upon its Interests, that no one cun look upon its suspension in any other light than aa a great public calnmity, and it is but just that it ahould be known to their {ponds in the Atlantic States how uni versal is the confidence reposed In them here. No one doubts that they will resume businesa in a few daya, under the most favorable auspices, ana on a perfectly stable basis. In anticipation of it, confidence has been in a great degree restored, and business affairs wear a more cheerful aspect. For the last lew days we have had copious rains throughout the State, and there is every prospect that the miners will have "a right jolly time of it." For many months past their "banking operations" have been sus pended for want of rain, but now there ii a prospect that every "paying bank" in the mining regions will have a "run" upon it of considerable duration. But fortunately ?11 such banks are predicated on a specie basis, and need no "safety furd" arrangements to secure their solvency. The pick and shovel, "long toms" and "washers," are the only tellers which are needed to turn out "the dust" as fast as customers cnll for It. Fears are entertained abroad that the mines of Cali fornia are beginning to fall, and that very soon it will not pay to work them. Nothing could be more ground less tlian Buch apprehensions, and no intelligent Califor nian entertains them. All tnat we need here is a larger population, and, considering the vast importance of Cali fornia and its gold, to the whole Union, it is amazing that Congress bus so long delayed the establishment of a line of m iliary posts across the plains, for the protec tion and relief ot emigrants. The class of people which are needed here are unable to defray the expense of a sea voyage, and would not oome in that way if they could come for nothing. They are afraid to encounter the sickness ami perils of such a voyage, saying nothing of the expense. If tbey como at all, they must come by land, and there are hundreds of thousands who would gladly come in that mode, with their families, if Congress would only atl'oid them reasonable protection and succor, by the eatablit-bment of military posts at proper inter vals. If the newt papers would confer a great benefit upon California and the whole Union, let them take up the subject earnestly, and press it upon Congress until the end is accomplished. PACIFIC.

Virgin Bay, March 6, 1865. The legitimate government of thia republic has re established its authority In all this and the eastern de partments, in rout?r|uence of a triumph obtained by its brave troopM on the 9th ult. over the factious party which heln the (ortiSed pluza of Maaaya. During the night of the same oate, the camp of Jalteva disappeared, leaving behind all the artillery, munitions, muskens, ana almost all the ammunitions of war which they had ia that place. It ih un established fact, that the legitimists profess the sentiments of order entertained by Oeneral Chomorro, as it is also evident that those eons pirini against him carry disasters and ruin wherever they not their foot. Thus Mr. Castillon has. on this occasion, given the most lamentable proof that the principle! which Irs >ips profess do cot reign in his heart : the dis credit he haw left bebind him in the nine months of pil lage and tumult, has reduced him to the plaza of Leoo, in wbicb city commerce and all property holders await the army of the true government, to save that portion of their property wbicb it still in danger of being destroyed. The army is on the way to Letn, and at preeent occupies the jlai* of Managua. fortified with sufficient artillery, and the troops not only of this and the Eastern Depart ment, but the troops of Upper and I/Ower Segovia FRANCO. ORTEGA. Rivah, Nicaragua, March 8, 1865. Is Colonel Whttltr a Filibustero ?? Marriages at the V fitted States Legation? Indignation of the People qf Granada. When will the administration cease to send abroad ministers who have not the capacity for their mission*, and who are not capable of maintaining the dignity of their country ? They have sent a gentleman to Nicaragua who from the very first moment he arrived here, ha* shown himself to be a filiburter and some thing more. His first ofHclal act was to marry two couple, a Swiss to a native, and an American negri to a native. This was done before It was hardly known by either party that he was in the country, and by what authority he acted no one knows but himself. Bit next was to attach to his legation some four or five gentlemen from New Orleans, who had nothing to lose and all to gain, and who, to further their purposes, found a very useful man ( is laid) in Col. J. H. Wheeler, the Minister. They went with him to Granada, and were introduced to Gen. Chomorro as members of the legation. There three of them went over to the Castillon party, and received commissions as colonels and captains, with an order to intercept a bnngo that was to leave San J uan del Norte on a or'ain day with munitions of war for Chomorro. tor which purpose they received >000 to enlist men and buy arms. The people of the country are very indignant. They cannot see whatever induced the President to send such a minister to represent the United States. The war is still pending ; and if Chomorro gains, which is mont probable, Ool. Wheeler will not be re ceived, for the people are very much incensed against him. The day be arrived there was ound a bundle of some half dozen or more rifles, which he denies any knowledge of ? still, they were marked in his name. Ihiti has gone over the whole country, and they look upon him as el Mm istro filibustero. The follow ng is the translation of a letter that was written by the Governor of the Southern department to the Hiniiiter of Relations of the provisional government: ? " The prestiges of a brilliant scheme will not only fas cinate t-mall minds as my own, but also great ones, now and then. In one of theite moments of pleasant illusion I have made an agreement with the two principal chiefs of a small party of filibusters, by which they undertake to conquer the Castillo and Fort San Carlos, plac ng bota pointH afterwards at the disposition of the democratic government." The two chiefs spoken of were in Granada with, and attached, to fol Wheeler's legation. proceedings have aroused the Indignation of the people. Judge Coring and the Cnmbrlrtj^c University. Dank Law School, Camdridor, March 24, H55. Rejection of the Hon. Edward O. Loring from the Uni versity Lectureship ? Resolution! Thereon. Enclosed I Hflnd yon a copy of resolution* expressive of the nenne of the Law School concerning the rejection of Hon. Edward Q. Loring from the poet of University Lecturer In the Law Sohool, which he boa filled for Rome time past. It having been intimated in certain quarters that the students of the I,aw School acquiesced In Judge Loring's removal, and Inferences Injurious to that gen tleman having been drawn therefrom, the students have thought it due to Judge Loring and themselves to correct any impressions so derogatory to their true views upon the subject; and this they have done by ex pressing their views of Judge I.orlng's worth and ability, as contained in the resolutions annexed, which wero pasted yesterday by a vote of 66 yean to 12 nays. It may not be improper to stute that the resolutions were moved and seconded by gentlemen from Massachusetts. By publishing tbe following reiolutions in your valua ble journal you will prevent misconstruction of the ex pressed views of the School, and will much oblige THE MAJORITY The following are tbe resolutions expressive of the leti'-e of the Dane Schocl, in re^rd to ihe rejection of Hon. Edward G. Loring from tlie University Lecture ship : ? Whereas, the Corporation of Harvard College selected and appointed Hon Edward <?. Loring University Lec turer in tbe Dane Law School, and the Overseers have aibitrarily refused to confirm the same; therefore belt Resolved by us, members of the Dane Law School, in assembly convened, That we fully concur in the opinion of the Corporation, aa by the'r tlect'on expressed, that the personal worth and intellectual and logal abilities and acquirements of Mr. Loring eminently qualify him for the office of Lecturer. Fesolved, That Mr. Loring's system or instruction, comprising a clear analysis of common lav principles, and an exposition of their reasons and application, en riched by frequent illustration from the e ivil law, was calculated to a rare (Ugree to aiford a knowledge of the topics embraced In it, at once broad and minute; and that we deeply regret his remuval, as bringing a loss upon ourselves and tho science of law Resolved, That we regard the removal of Mr. Loring as tending to restrain the freedom of judicial opinion, and as functioned neither by justice nor wise policy. Passed March 23d, by yeas 50? nays 12. Cambridor, March 20, 1865. Judge Loring's Rejection? The Organization qf the Uni versity. I noticed In your paper lately an article containing se vere strictures on Harvard University and its Professors, on account of tbe recent action of the Overseen In re jecting the nomination of Judge Loring as Lecturer in the Law School. In another morning paper o? the sams date, there was an attack, equally severe, up-ro the Cjt poration of the University, for attempting to keep him there, against tbe will of the Overseers. Neither of these writers appear to understand precisely the organization of the University, and tho legal distribution of tbe pow ers among the several bodies. In tbe present communi cation, I shall limit myself to a few words upon the ar ticle in the Herald. The University of Cambridge consists of ths Under Graduate Department, the Law kchool, the Diviaity School, and the Medical School. The Professor) in theie several departments constitute the academical body? the l'resident of the University is the presiding officer of each Faculty. The aoacenilcsl body, embracing the four Facul ies, have the general direction of the studies of the University, subject to the control of the Corporation. lhe Corp oration consists of seven gentlemen. who bold the property, and mate tbe appoint aente s ibject to tbe confirmation of tbe Overseers. A vacancy in ttie Corpo ration is filled by the remaining members, subject again to tbe confirming vole of the Overseers. Tbe Overseers are a body of thirty men, appointed by the Legislature, from time to time. The (J jvcrnor, I.ieu'.. (invernor, President of tbe Senate, tbe Speaker of the Home of l!eprr?entatives, the Secretary of tbe Board of Education, the 1'resiJent and Treasurer of the University beitg also members ex- officio. Tie writer in tbe Hkrald assumes that Judge Loring's rejection was by ths University? tbat is, by tr.e profes sors in the Un versity.

Ilie conildence from all parties, sections and cliques, in thepreeent administration here, ocn traits remarka bly with the universal mistrust and antagonism which characterises the sonewhat brief, though eventful, ad ministration of T. B. Cumins;, our acting Governor. I predict Izard's administration here will be one of a mo del character. A few nights sinoe a preliminary convention of the democratic members of the Legislature was held in the Capitol for the. purpose of taking steps to organiie the party throughout the Territory. Some local reeling pre vailed, hut it was quieted in the grand object,, and the preepect now is that an efioient organization will be effected in a few weeks. Quite a number of K X 's exist in the Territory, but so few that their influence is iui perceptible. In about three weeks that interesting body known as the Nebraska Legislature, will odjourn. and ultbough coin poied of men of some talent, it Is dccldedly a rich bo<:y, ard possesses merits of a singular character. In the necessary duties they progress quit* slowly. Almost every one has private objects which become pa ram iunt to the general good, and it is the general belief that few, if any, could or can ever be returned Kar.h member, in bills of a local and speculative character, be comes, with a few brother members, a body corpo rate, and thus nearly every object tends towards a speculative and personal interest. News has just reached here that Col. E. R. Doyle, formerly of fcouth Carolina, and now a representative or Dodge counry, in the House here, has by the Pi evident been appointed Marshal of the 'lerritory. The appoint, mtnt is one conveying general satisfaction to the peo ple, and a more worthy selection could not have been made. Be came on with our lamented tiov. Burt, and his bone^t, upright course has won him tin esteem of his fnends. The Indian difficulties here do not with us now possess that alarming feature represented, yet the need of an efficient body of home rangnrs or mount ed United States troops is absolutely re< juired iBrTue squatter and emigrant. A report reached here a short time sinee, that Logan Fontenelle, the Chief of Omatia Indians, has been murdered and scalped by the Sioux Indians. They are becoming somewhat troublesome. The general progress of the Territorv is flattering. Buildings and improvements are springing up in every direction. A large emigration is expected hither iu the sprL'g, and men of capital and enterprise can do well here. More anon. IK. 11 Omaha City, (N. T.) March 3, 1855. Local Strife in the Leffit lature ?

The lie and " d? ? d he," have become of such frequent usage that there's not the slightest danger. It would astonish gentlemen of even the or dinary school. 'Tie no common occurrence to see the Speaker of the House Indulging In vituperation, which I cannot say ia characteristic of even the w?rst class of frontier men. The location of county seats, and the strong local feeling pertaining thereto, is now the order of the d?y. Our highly popnlar Governor? M. W. Izard? bids fair to add a dignity and honesty to his official acts which will strongly contrast with that pursued by our acting Governor, whom general report throughout the Tertitory bays should be removed from the office of Secretary of the Territory. It in natural for men, however, to look out for No 1, and he has doubt lees done It in his short administration. The people? the honest portion of the settlers ? would not grieve were he to be removed immediately. His policy has been characteristic. He had assembled around him a few special toadies, who, knowing his supreme autho rity for the timi being, have for self interest acttd well their part, upon the pnnciple of "dog eat do;," and no long as he b'ld the power were willing to back any and all of bis political and other schemes, to secure some petty pecuniary or political advancement wbijh his pa tronage could fo easily bestow. Nearly every spe cies of patronage be could bestow has been given in tLU manner before our present Governor reached the Territory. But his special friends say " he is an honur able man."

Its .S 'oil, Climate, Advantages ?The Indian Tribes? Description of their Villages and Encampment* ? A Kuif to the Omaha Village ? Neces sity of Geologists. From tbe many little descriptive effusions which ema nate from tbe press generally throughout the country, concerning Nebraska, those deiirmsof emigrating hither can really form but little practical or rather true tbeoiet ieal knowledge to aasist them in decisively answering the question whether " to go or not to go." 1 should advue none to go until they are satisfied it is forthe best, and to believe bet about half wbatjou hear ^lore arriving at snch a consluiion. The Terrrtory of Nebraska, which, until further treaty stipulations are effected with tbe Pawnee tnd other Indians, covers the entire ceded territories of the Ottoe, Mifsonrl and Omaha Indiana; yet, by no means is ail this capable of sustaining a population. Perhaps I may salsly say, about 6,030,001) acres of tbls, which in eludes the 175 miles bonnded by tbe Missouri river, with a rear boundary of somewhere la tbe vicinity ot fifty or slit j miles, Is really and only capable. Aling tbe talbFOuri river timber Ismoet abundant, and prarte joining on tbe rear, really cnemilng. Thsisallnoe clamed by the pioneers. Back Irom the nver, except Ing on tbe wat? r courses, timber is scaree, and the country gradually recedes mu> one vast and ali^oit deeert prarie toward the western borders ef ehat la laid down uion th? general maps aa Nebraska. Ihe prarie in the confines atove spoken of U perhaps unequalled in ihe world In point of fertility and gensral beauty, and with care ia preventing fires, which wildif range over the country during the autumnal eeaeoo, destroying everything in tbe shape of ve?etatioe, there will n a few jeers be a sufficleacy of timber here for or dinary purposes.

Our winters are aerere, yet romewhtt remarkable. The cold, piercing winds which ?weep over the prarie here, unbroken by timber, exaeel anything of the kind I ertr fait. The thermometer often atanda at frtm 10 to 16 degree* below zero. Theae ex treme cold a pells generally last about three days, and are followed by threo of a much milder type; then again cornea the cold. Bat little if any rain falls daring the winter months, and really but htue snoir in com pari ion with the States in corresponding latitudes. fne at mosphere Is clearer than I stmt before Haw in the States, and resembles in this reipoct, as in some others, that of Italy. Objects are distinguishable at a remarkable distance, and upon the prarie the traveller is quite easily tecelved. Breaking the soil at Hist is qnite hard, taking from three to five or four yoke of oxen; vet when onoe broken it is quite canity tilled afterwards, and brings forth abundantly of all the ordinary ^ crop* of the Northern States. None of the Indians of whom the land was purchased have yet been removed to their reservations, and no one knows when they will; large bodies. Ilk* governments, move slow. The Ottoea ana Mitxouri Indian* are aoma thirty miles below her*, in their village. Bat few of too Mimouri tribe tr* now In exiatenco, and for aelf-prot?9 tion th?y have a united Interest. Together they number tow only abont three hundred, and ar* cons antly di minishing The Omaha Indians are now in their en campment, about nine utile* below nere, near Belleview. hey number about foar hundred. Tn*ir village is about en miles back from the river, but have changed to their present encampment for th* winter, owing to the an noyance of the Stoox and Punca Indians, with whom they ar* constantly at war. tMie throe tribes ar* In a wretched condition, and i resent a fsr different appearance to what strangers have formed of Inlian character. The r payments from the United States, at now made, really do them but little good, Jet this, in connection with th* effects of their bnffalo and ear bunts, afford thorn a living, if living it can b* called. During th* summer season their squaws rai?e corn to som*?it*nt. An occasional dsscent of the Sioux In dians upon thsir outskirts, lifting a scalp or so and stealing a number of ponies, la a matter of not much in ter** t amongst the settlers. Mat* they broke up their village I visited them, and found them in all their native glory. A council was npon the docket, and with a few "cuggy how's" ? how do you do my friend? and snndry gutteral "ugh's," I was admitted a spectator. Their orators are nature's, and one aged chief ? Whit* Oow ? with but few exoep tions, wonld compete with many of his pale faced brethren; but not a word could 1 understand. But very few understand Kngiisb In the least, and apparently care nothing abont learning. The village is composed of lodges made of buffalo hides, tanned and stretched upon poles, resembling, in form, a sugar loaf, and wigwams, composed of sticks and dirt, built in a circle like their lodges, but only about six feet high. I attended their songs snd dances, which remind on* more of the orgies of poor Tam O'dhanter's witches than anything elso. The squaws were generally buaily engagad in dressing bo Halo hides, shelling coin, or nursing thelrlpapooses, whilst the men were idle. Amongst th* effect* that olviiiiation Is making in their midst, I noticed some seven or eight gathered aronnd in a circle npon the round, nearly naked? as all Indians her* are? busy play sg a gam* of cards, and th* adroita*** and sleight of band with which the curds were shuffled aid dealt would bave astonished the reformed gambler, Green. After spending about half a day 1 left Th* Indians are only troublMom* in the execution of their stealing propensities. The Pawnees, who live at their village, soma forty miles to our westwaid, are about of the same class as thos* above mentioned. Tne Omabas sxpress their willingness to b* removed to their reservation, but not until Uncle Sam gives them troops to shield them from the tribes with whom they are at constant war. I bave set for hours by the side o' au in telligent chief who convenes in English, and listened and noted the description of some of their battles, and cannot wonder at an Indian's attachment to his tribe and mode of lif*. It is the love of a sailor for the o?ean and his own gallant ship. Tb* country here needs very much the services of good, efficient, practical geologists, to develop* the vast resources which Indian traditions, &c., assure us it con tains. Coal and iron have already been found, and doubtless exist to a remarkable extent. Of the northern region of the territory, known as the "Msuvis Terrs," or Bad land. I do not doubt but that much of general in terest to the world mWht be made known through a corps of geologists. Trader* and trappers tell ma that wagon loada ot fossil remains can be gathered all along the valleys and hill r.des. This asaur*a me that a care ful geological research in that quarter might develops useful and impoilant discoveries.

As a ir.?a?Qie of priinaiy importance, I would recom mend the adoption of a plain and timple system or civil aid criminal law, the necessity of tula for the protection of the lives and proper./ of our citizens, and thosd who may remand our protection in their transit through oar country, will be obvious to yon, without the enimera ticn of additional arguments. To accomplish this In tho ordinary eonrso of legislation wculd require more time than is a'loweJ by the organic law for the preaeut l^is lat'ie Asitmhly to remain In session, and as suitable men have already been appointed by joint resolution of both hou. ea, whoa* duty it is to arrange and codify a system or Uw, fur the government, of the Territory, and report the tame to the Legislative Assembly for its adoption at t.h? next regular session thereof, I would re tcmiMni, lor the tune being, the adoption of some one of tho codes of tfce adjoining States.

The organic law providee that all township, district and county officers, not therein otherwLso provided for, shall be appointed or elected, as the ca?e miy be. iu such msnner as shall bo provided by the Governor and Legislative Assembly. It will be in conformity with the principles of popular lights which lie at the foundation of the government of Nebraska, that all those officers shall be elected by the people.
