Under act of Congress, approved 3d March, 1353,
entitled -'An act to extend pre-emption rights to
certain lands therein mentioned," the pre-emption
laws of the United States as they now exist are
extended over the alternate reserved sections of
public lands along the line of the railroad hereinbelore
mentioned, where the settlement and improvement
were made prior to the final allotment of
the alternate sections to the said railroad. There
fore, all claims by pre-emption to any ol tbe alternate
sections of public lands within the limits
oi iginally reserved will attach, if predicated upon
settlements made prior to the 4th February, 1363,
the date of the final allotment.
Claims within the six miles limits must be proven
up at any time before the day herein fixed for the
commencement of the public sale, and are to be
paid for at the rale of two dollars and fif y cents
p r acre. Claims outside of the six miles, and
within the limits of the original reservation, must
be proven up prior to the restoration of said lands
to private entry.
Soldiers' bounty land warrants, at a dollar and
twenty-live cents per acre, may be received in
payment for either class of lands; one warrant
only, however, can be located by each pre-emptor. i
Immediately after the close of the public sale
directed by the foregoing proclamation of the Pre
sident, applications will be received for the purchase
at private entry, or location by warrants, of
the lands reserved to satisfy this grant, outside of
the eix miles limits, in such order as to prevent

IT apeaka fay>rably, we think, for the intelli
gepce and aound national feeling of the people
of thia country, that Meaara Little. Brown & Co
have been called upon toiasuethestxtAJRyionof Mr.
Weheter'a Worka. We have-been struck with the
juatice of the opinion expressed by a distinguished
clergyman of Philadelphia, in a discoure- on the
character of Mr. Webster, that "the best thing we
can do for training our young men is to place in
their hands the worka of thia great Mate-mnn;"
and also of I is remark upon the influence of that
recommendation, "I feel that I have r< rule red every
family a useful service, which may have been induced,
through my recommendation, to rive it a
place among their household book"." Frmn a
addition to tije intercut which every intcliieent
reader who once enter# upon the peruse I of Mr.
Webster's speeches or writings, either from the
importance of the. subject# treated, the soundness
and force of the view# expressed, or from the charm
of the style and manner of discussion, we have no
doubt that these works will attain a much wider
circulation and a far more genera! perusal, than
those of any other American author. Tire excellent
manner in which the work is published, and
the reasonableness of the price, recommends it tc
a general circulation
We learn that an idea has been entertained, tc
some extent, that the edition abdve referred to
edited by Mr Everett, may be hereafter superseded
by another and more complete edition. This is a
rviiafabn Thia ftHiftnn moo r>r\nr?r\!l?/J * ?'l ?wl I * ~ -J
with great care during the lifetime of Mr. Wr.b ter,
with all the assistance which be could afford
for rendering it complete, and no new edition car
supersede it Should there be a further puhlica
tion of correspondence or miscellanies, it will be
in the form of an addition which will in no degree
impair the value of the present edition, bu would
tend to increase its interest.
In confirmation of this fact we are authorized tc
publish the following letter from Mr ''"letchei
Webster, one of the executors of the late Mr
W ebster:
"B06TOt?, January 10, 1853.
"Msssns. LiTTtK, Brown & Co?Gentktrien : ]
have been informed that frequent inquiries art
made of you as to the completeness of your edition
of Mr" Webster's works.
"The present volumes, edited by Mr. Kvereti
anJi published by you, contain every thing, up tc
March, 185'2, which was intended to he Included
in his entire published works
"Itis probable that one or two volumes of correspondence
may hereafter be collected and pub
lished in the same style with your six volumes
This cannot be considered as definitively decided
upon; but it is certain that no publication will be
made which will render your edition incomplete
or in any way diminish its value.
"Yours, very respectfully,
"FLETCHER WEBSTER."

the most satisfactory and interesting of all the
books which his death has called from the press.
The subjects presented are well selected and treated
with excellent taste and feeling, and it contains
the most valuable of the tributes to the memory ol
the deceased statesman."?Boston Daily Advertiser
"These volumes are a collection of imperishable
models in constitutional law, jurisprudence, international
law, diplomacy, finance, legislation,
and literature?a collection not to be matched by
this, and hardly by any other country, in capital
and multiform excellence. There is not a page in
these books which may not give the world assurance
of a transcendent intellect; not a page which
will not make posterity prouder of the land of thrir
fathers. Thrse productions will be perpetuated as
long as the English language endures."
[.Veto York Courier and Enquirer.
"Distinguished men have monuments erected
for them by their grateful countrymen, and sometimes
by the people of another nation, or by a remote
posterity. Daniel Webster has taken care tc
build his own, and in his lifetime. The six ample
volumes of his works just published by Messrs
Little & Brown, of Boston, will constitute a more
precious and durable memorial of his existence
and his greatness, than tne granite column, the
marble or brazen bust.
"Wo cl,?ll r.ot r" U:..i
at, the deservings of Mr. Webster, still Irse to
compare him with other men. There is a shorter
course, which is to invite the community to weigh
and value thern for themselves. There are his
works, such of them as have been collected. There
they stand They shall speak for him They
want only to have readers to create admirers."
[.YetoarA Do-ily Advertiser.
"In company with the writings of Washington
and Frankiin, they constitute a most ess otial
part of the history of our Republic. No lapse ol
time can destroy their value so long as the world
shall feel an interest in knowing how the greatness
of the American nation was built up and preserved,
and how the genius and spirit of the peo
pie in the nineteenth century were embodied and
personified in one eminent individual - emphatically
the Amkrica^ Statksmas.'?

"By the side of the excellent edition of the works
of Edmund Burke, issued eome years since by the

graver qualities of a quarterly review, filling a 13
position hitherto unoccupied in our literature. ft
While attractive variety for the general reader jj
is thus obtained, there will be an attempt to secure u
substantial xqkllbrcs in each department. n
To accomplish this we intend that the work in ti
all its mecnanical and business aspects shall be oj
such as will meet tbe views of our most distin- S
j guished writers?such a medium as they would
I $eek far in communicating with the world, and
| such as may tempt some to write ably and profitably
who have not hitherto contributed to periodi!
cats
! Wc intend that all articles admitted into tbe
! work shall be liberally paid for.
Wc believe that an ample material exists for
such a work; that tbere is no lack either of talent
among our writers or of appreciation on the part of
the reading public; and that a properly conducted
periodical of this kind may bring to light much
true genius as yet undeveloped.
"Putnam's Monthly" will be devoted to the in
torests of Literature, Science and Art?in their best
and pleasantest aspects.
Entirely independent of all merely selfish interests,
or partisan or sectional leanings, in its
uianagerncnt,it will be open to competent writers
for free discussion of such topics a3arc deemed imi
jx>rtant and of public interest.
The critical department will be wholly indepen>
dent of the publishers, and, as far as possible, of all
personal innucnceor bias Wholesomecastigations
f public a*buBes will be allowed a fair field without
fear or favor.
An elevated national tone and spirit, American
i and independent, yet discriminating and just,
both to the literature and to the social condition
i nd prospects of both hemispheres, will be culti
, ated as a leading principle of the work.
Special attention will be given to matters con
, nectetl with social policy, municipal regulations
puiuiu neann ana saiety, and the practical economies
of cvery-day life,
i While a subject neeila illustration, or pictorial
i example, shch illustrations will be occasionally
given; but it is not expected that the success of the
work is to depend on what arc termed 'embellishments."

their hearty approval of the plan, and will
i all give it their general co-operation, while . early

By the act approved June 17, 1844, the Secretary
of the Senate is "directed to confine his
purchases exclusively to articles of the growth and
manufacture of the United States, provided the
same can be procured of such growth and manufacture
of suitable quality and at reasonable prices,
upon as good terms as to quality and price as can
be obtained of foreign growth and manufacture."
A preference will therefore be given to the productions
of American industry; and all persona making
proposals to supply any article will state whether
the same is of the growth and manufacture
of the United States.
The articles must be delivered at the office of
tbe Secretary of the Senate at Washington, free of
any charge for carriage, on or before the 1st of
October next.
Every article mutt be of the very best quality, unlets
an inferior article is called for.
The right is expressly reserved, in case it shall
be necessary, to order, upon giving reasonable no
tice, any additional quantity of any or all of said
articles that may be required for the use of the
Senate during the thirty-third Congress.
A sufficient specimen of each article proposed
for (of paper half a quire, and of envelopes 25) is
to accompany the proposal, and to be marked with
the name of the proposer and the price of the article.
Tbe whole of each article specified in tbe
foregoing list will be deemed a class; and the person
offering to furnish any such class at the lowest
price (quality considered) will receive a contract
for the same, on executing a bond, with two or
more sureties, satisfactory to the Secretary of the
Senate, for the performance thereof, under a forfeiture
of twice the contract price in case of failure,
which bond is to be filed in the office of the
said Secretary within ten days after the proposals
have been accepted.
ii any arucie contracted ior snouid not be delivered
within the time stipulated, or should be inferior
in any respect to the sample, the bond of the
contractor will be put in suit.
Proposals should be endorsed "Proposals for
Stationery for the Senate," and be directed to the
Secretary of the Senate at Washington.
Proposals and specimens must be delivered at
the office free of charge.

ENGLISH REPORTS IN LAW & EQUITY
Common Law, Equity, Criminal. Admiralty,
and Ecclesiastical Reports CornLined.
The only Complete Series of English Reports Published.
THE UNPRECEDENTED patronage this series
of Reports has received has now established it
upon a permanent basts. It will be regularly continued
on the same terms as heretofore, and will
contain ALL THE REPORTED CASES in all the
English Courts, UNABRIDGED and UNCONDENSED.
Subscribers mav re.lv nn hnvintr mi
exact reprint of every English Case, and ready for
delivery here a few weeks after its publication
abroad. This Series combines the cases of about
Twenty Series of English Reports, and is the only
work published which contains all the decided
cases. Vol. I. commences with the decisions of
Michaelmas (November) Term, A. D. 1850, or
about the 15th and 16th vol. of Adolphus and Ellis,
in the Queen's Bench; vol. 10 of Manning, Granger
and Sc?tt, in the Common Pleas; and vol. 5th
of Welsby, Hurlstone and Gordon, in the Exchequer.
This Series of Reports the publishers confidently
recommend to the profession, as containing all the
English cases upon each special department of the
law, and at the same time comprising the whole
body of the law in a cheap, accurate, and convenient
form. Numerous flattering testimonials as
to the character and value of these Reports have
been voluntarily tendered to the publishers, and
they are determined to continue to increase their
usefulness to the profession. Vols. i. to XI. now
ready for delivery, at $2 25 per single volnme, or
$2 to permanent subscribers.
The following are a few of the many testimon.als
which have been offered as to the character of thi
Series of Reports.
"Washington, January 19, i852.
"Messrs. Littlb & Brown: In the republica
tion of the 'English Reports in Law and Equity,'
you render to the profession a most important service.
The first volume of these reports includes
cases decided in the House of Lords, Privy Council,
Courts of Equity and Common law, from and
after Michaelmas term, 1850; also 'Crown Cases
Reserved, and Cases in the Ecclesiastical and Admiralty
Courts ' And the second, third, fourth,
and fifth volumes, which you have republished, include
the caees decided in the above courts in 1851.
"These Reports, like all o.her works which proceed
from your press, are executed in a most sub
stantial manner, and do credit to the enterprise of
the publishers. I became a subscriber for them as
soon as thev were found with the hnnkKellerc nf the
West, and I am convinced that, from their cheapness
and extent of matter, they must supersede,
at least in this country, all other English Reports
of late decisions.
"Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
"JOHN McLEAN."
Extract from a Letter of the State Reporter of Vermont.
"Dear Sib: Allow roe to say, that 1 am highly
pleased both with the arrangement and execution
of the 'English Law and Equity Reports,' and find
the work to be of very great value.
"Iam, with much respe.t, your most obedient
servant, P/T. WASHBURN."
] ]"Messrs. Little & Brown I have been somehat
acquainted with the,character of the English
Law ana Equity Reports, by the Jurist and Law
Journal for many years, but more so, for the last
year, through your republication. I have no doubt
they will supply every thing which the profession
generally will desire, from all the English Reports,
and in a form and at an expense altogether unobjectionable.
Tbey are furnished so much earliei
than any other series of English Reports in this
country, that your republication will be almost indispensable
to every member of the profession who
desires to keep pace with the history of English
jurisprudence. The notes,by the American editors,
are a valuable addition, and I am inclined to believe
the work will prove to be the most desirable
and least expensive of any series of English Reports
republished in this country.
"Verytruly yours,
"ISAAC P. REDFIELD."
"New York, May 17,1852.
"The English Law and Equity Reports, edited
uy Messrs. Bennett & Smith, are, I think, a great
convenience and benefit to the profession. Such
examination as 1 have given these volumes convinces
me of the accuracy and diligence of the editors;
and the Reports appear tp me the most convenient
and compendious form m which the English
Reports are presented to us.
"WILLIAM KENT."
"It is impossible to read these Rennrts wilhnnt
high admiration of the learning* 01 the English
courts and bar, and an ardent desire to see in our
country tbe bench filled, as it is in England, with
the most eminent lawyers, without distinction ot
party, and with a salary which makes the office
respected and respectable. We again commend
the work to every practicing lawyer, as the cheapest
and best edition of the Englist Reports."
? Western Law Journal.
iThp plan and execution of this series of Reports
are too well known, and have been too frequently
commended in our pages, to require further
comment now. We are glad to hear that
their circulation is becoming more and more extended,
and their great merits more widely appreciated.
We entirely concur in the opinion expressed
by Judge Fletcher, of our supreme court,
that Messrs. Bennett and Smith, in editing these
Reports, were doing a great service to the profession."?Law
