'Iiiiii Jg li WHITE CLOUD is situated on the Missouri River, in Doniphan County, Kansas, six hundred and fifteen miles above St. Louis, and two miles below the Nebraska line. The landing, a mile in extent, of beautiful bluff rock, is equalled by but one from St Louis to Sioux City, a distance of one thousand miles, and being the natural business point for a large extent o rich and beautiful country, will, of itself, in a few years, build up a flourishing city. Upon the town site, and all through the adjacent country, there is an abundance of timber of every kind needed for family and building purposes. Iron ore is found on the town site, also stone of a superior quality, for building purposes. Bituminous coal of an excellent quality is found in large quantities near the town. As a point for Manufacturing, "White Cloud has no superior on the Missouri River. No portion of tho West has a finer climate, better soil, more beautiful scenery or is better watered than the country for 150 miles back of White Cloud. Of the central position of White Cloud nothing need be said. An accurate map of the Country is the best comment. It is immediately on the air line from the great State of Iowa, and Northern Missouri, to Western and Northwestern Kansas, as well as Southern Nebraska. The roads di verging from here are good at all seasons. A State road is now opening, and will soon be completed from the opposite side of the Missouri River to Des Moines, in Iowa, and as there is a new steam ferry recently established, this will be the most direct and convenient route for the emigration to Northern and Western Kansas. A Railroad has already been chartered to Fort Riley, in the interior of the Territory, and will be built at no distant day. The healthfulness of the climate, and fertility of the soil are proverbial, and are surpassed only by the beauty of the gently undulating prairie. This portion of the public domain is rapidly filling up, but still most valuable lands can be obtained within a very reasonable distance at the government price. White Cloud, though scarcely a year old, contains one of the best hotels in Kansas ; five stores all doing a good business, and a class of buildings superior to most new towns, and has a populatian of five hundred, and is rapidly improving in every respect. Already there are flourishing schools in operation in the- place, and whithin eight miles, in the growing town of Highland, there has been established a Uni versity under the management of the Presbyterian denominatiop, which is now nnder the process of erection, the cost of wich, will be more than twenty-five thousand dollars. Thus the morals and intellect of the people will keep pace with the improvements of the country, and render White Cloud, as a commercial mart, and the adjacent country as an agricultural district, the most desirable and attractive portion of the mighty West.
