By the proper education of his heart, he will be taught to hate what is evil, foolish and wrong. And by a nroDer education of th hand, he will be enabled to supply his wants, to add to his comfort, and assist those around him. The highest object is of great value, every thing that hinders us, of comparatively worthless. When wis dom reigns in the head, and love in the heart, the man is ever ready to do good ; order and peace reigns around him, and sin and sorrow are almost unknown. tfSFCol.

THE Town of Delaware is situated fa Kan sas territory, on the sont& side of the Mis-' ouri river, three miles above the line of the Delaware reserve, and ten nfterbelow Leaven worth city. This town way laid off and located in February lat,on a tre-t of land densely tim bered, easv of access forttSe surrounding country and situated favorably for health : al ready there are a number of nouses going up It has the following resources7 s a good and prominent point: , ... Firstly A Good LartrffngV The Missouri river at this point isr compress ed within a narrow space, the channel is re markably deen on the Delaware Bide, arnf wash es for a mile above and below, the Kansas-shore, thus affording at all times a safe and tfecunr landing for steamers. Secondly Timber in Abundance The tract of land on which the town is lai.l out, is covered with valuable timber, for build ing purposes, besides this, there is on the oppo site side of the river a large bottom, heavily timbered with oak, ash and walnut Thirdly Its Position. Tli is town has on the Kansas side of the fiv er supporting it, a large district of the very best lands in the Territory, while on the opposite side of the river there' is a large and fertile bot tom, teeming with population. This bottom ist of itself sufficient to sustain a. town of large size. This is the most accessible point from which the Delaware nation of Indians can pro cure their supplies. Delaware is the nearest and most accessible point at which the country on the Kansas river can do their receiving and forwarding business. There are a great num ber of towns on th Kansas that will find it to their interest to make this place their shipping; point, among them we would name Osawkee Calhoun and others.' As there is a good ferry at this point, emigrants traveling to Kansas Ter ritory on the great State road from St, Joseph) to St. Louis, will find that thin is the proper point at which to enter the territory, as by tnri means they avoid a great deal of unnevessary travel. This location is high and commanding, hav ing no stagnant water near to generate disease -from its streets, there is presented to the eye a spendid view of the Missouri river for miles above and below the town, the country in the vicinity presenting a view at once pfeasingamf romantic. Every inducement will be given to mechanics' to make Delaware the place of their choice. We ask each person to examine the place. Tlie merchant will find on an examination, that Delaware is obliged to command a trade not second to any town in the Territory j from such persons we ask an examination. In a word, word we ask for Delaware an examination by the public. - - Sale of Lot a. The undersigned of Platte City, Mo. f PHer T. Abell. Weston, or L.
