FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 1 T. CO~IZI5ISIONE88I INSfRUCTIOA5. We present in another column Circous tar No. °21, containing important Instruc tions to the officers of Local L~and offices, in regard to the entry of lands. It is the first definite instruction issued, covering entries, where a doubt exists as to whether they are properly agricul-. tural or mineral lands. The ruling of the Commissioner is arbitr~ary, govern ing local officers. It differs materially from the view taken of the law, by many officers and pre-emptors,and reveries the presumptive rightof entry from mineral to agricultural lands. While the ruling is undoubtedly right, and well intended, it is to be regretted that it opens the door to annoyance from evil disposed persons, who may thereby delay, for a time, the granting of titles to valuable property. The law is, however, equita ble and miners do not tolerate the med-. dling of that class of men. The princi. pal points in the Commissioners instruc tioD.5 are 1st. All lands are presumed to be ag ricultural if improved by settlers. unless previously reserved as mineral, or affi davits filed to that effect. 2d. In case these lands are claimed for mineral purposes, the burden of proof lies with those making the claim. 3d. The mere existence of gold, silver, cinnabar or copper thereon, is not suffi cient; they must be proven maure ralua.. bk as mineral than agricultural lands. 4th. The return of the Deputy Sur veyor is not sufficient ;it must be proven. 5th. Lands reserved as mineral, may contain portions more valuable as agri cultural which must be open for entry under that class, and may be so entered if in good faith, after six months, unless affidavits are filed against it. 6th. '(lood faith"' is in all cases de-. manded; for whichever purpose entered, it must b.- established they are more valuable for that than the other. 7th. Timber lands may not be entered, as mineral to monopolize their use. 8th. Affidavits must allege the exist. ance of gold, silver cinnabar or copper on mineral lands claimed, or the land be liable to pre-emption as agricultural. 9th. Lands more valuable as mineral cannot be entered by pre-emption or un der the homestead law as agricultural mineral rights taking precedence. 10th. Mineral lands when exhausted may be entered as agricultural. 11. Contested claims go to the Glener al land office for final adjudication. The Circular is an important one and should receive the consideration of all who contemplate the entry of either mineral or agricultural lands, as, under it Registers and Receivers must act. THIS WHOLE BOUNDLESS The House has voted the appropriation of $7,200,000 for Alaska, and it is now past doubt a Territory of the United States. The exchange of treaties took place June 20O, 1867, and the money was to have been paid April 20, 1868, our military forces having, in the meantime, taken possession. It was feared that the failure of the House might lead to unpleasant complications with Russia, but that power which has manifested toward the United States, these many years,'a friendly spirit, duly reciprocated, has not urged us. Mr. Butler endeavor ed to put a rider on the resolution with holding some half million dollars claim ed to be due, we believe, a Massachusects firm for munitions of war manufactured for Russia during the Crimean war, but the House rejected it. WVith the many, we believe the purchase of Alaska was inopportune, and yet accord that in many respects it is valuable to the United states. It loosens the hold of one great alien power from this continent ; it place. British Columbia in a position that ren'% ders its annexation to the United States desirable, perhaps essential to its wel fare. We are absorbing the continent ; that is America's destiny. It gives us 170,000 square miles of territory-larger than England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, D~enmiark, Sweeden and Norway com bined. It gives us four thousand miles of sea coast; wi.th fine harbors and a coast line of 11,000: with fisheries ten times larger than those of the Atlantic. They last year sent twenty cargoes of fish, 22, :3663,000 pounds, into San Francisco. Mr. Johnson, of Californiw, stated in the Hlouse, they wouUld thufs year send ten times that amount, and in three years, with American enterprise, supply the markets of the world. It gives us great forests of ship timber, and the trade winds of the Pacific six months in the year brings the commerce of Asia along its shores, another additional argument for the Northern Pacific Railroad, by which it would'save the distance tmom Puget Souad to San Francisco. Alaska may appear valueless now. It is only. a few years since the half continent west of the Missouri was so esteemed. It is conuidered valuable now. Alaska may net prove to have been a bad purchase, evvt though it was untimely. The gov. erumest had punrchased it. It bad arised EzmuiWSO OW .JVEZSDCTION. Some time since a bill wa introduced in the House to amend the organic act of Idaho, extending the jarisdiction of Justices of the Peace. It ma referred to the Judiciary Committee, sand on June 30 the Committee reported a substitute including the Territory of Montana in its provisions. The substitute was re - ported and agreed to. Its provisions we quote from the GJiobe of July let. It provides that the organic act of the Territories of Idaho and Montana, and the acts amending the same, so tar as they relate to the jurisdiction of probate courts and of Justices of the peace, be amended as follows : The probate court in said Territories in their respective counties, in addition to their probate jur. iudiction, are hereby authorized to hear and determine civil causes wherein the debt or damage does not exceed $2,000, and also such criminal case.' arisi0ngun der the laws of said Territory' sd not require the intervention of a grand jury; provided that said probate courts shall not have jurisdiction in any matter in controversy wherein the title of right to the peaceable possession of land may be in dispute, nor of chancery or divorce cases. And provided further, that in all cases :.n appeal may be taken for any order, judgment, or decree of said pro bate courts to the Supreme court of the Territory. The judge of each probate court in Montana, when the population shall exceed six thousand, may, if the Legislative Assembly of the Territory so authorize, appoint a clerk of said court, who shall hold said office during the session of the Court, and shall receive such fees as may be fixed by law. The probate courts in Montana where the Lgsative Assembly shall have author' ized the appointment of a clerk as herein provided shall be courts of record. Section two provides that justices of the peace in said Territories in actions and proceedings of which they now have jurisdiction by the laws of said Territo ries, and the acts hereby amended, are authorized to hear and determine mat ters in controversy wherein the debt or sum claimed shall not exceed the sum of $30. This bill will probably become a law. It materially extends the jurisdiction of Probate Courts ; they having heretofore been restricted to cases lees than $500O. It also changes the appeal from the Dis% trict to the Supreme Court. This j uris diction it the same as exercised by Pro. bate Courts and Justices in Colorado for the last five years, where it has worked satisfactorily. THEB EXTENSION It will be remembered that a short time since the Senate paused an act ex tending the time of completion of the Northern Pacific Railroad. It went to the House and was buried under other busfness rendering it impracticable to be reached under the rules. To avoid pos sibility of failure, the House passed a joint resolution precisely simillar in pur port which was taken up in the Senate by unanimous seon nt. June 29th, and passed a third reading. It continues all the grants of land, providing that the company shall begin work within two years from July 2d, 1868, and construct, equip, furnish and complete not less than 100 miles each year thereafter, and complete the entire road from Lake Su perior to Puget Sound Inside of nine years. The Democrat will make a note. We have received a communication from a gentleman thoroughly conver sant with the overland Railroad projects, in reply to our''suggestloon, stating that "the U. P. R. R" has no Inclination orir, tention to construct a Branch road to Montana, unless. the same subsidy is granted as on the mountain divisions of the U. P. Hi. H." and that "the expec tancy of the Branch, securing prece dence of the Northern Pacific in Con gress is absurd. The temper of Con gress is altogether in favor of the Nokth". ern road." The fact of the resolution coming up as a question of privilege and passing unanimously is confirma tory of the statement. Still, we believe the organization of a committee of rep. resentative men, to communicate with the officers of that road is desirable and should receive attention. SUPPRMSING UsIUPATCMUU. "It will be remembered in the elec tions of the last few years how sedua lously the reporters of the Associated Press, mast of whom are Radicals, took every occasion to misrepresent., and al ways made up their dispatches from the perverted accounts of liadical "specials."' We see by to-days's telegrams that this game has begun again."-Gaaette 16th. If the Gazette editor did see it, its readers did not. That diaj~atch dated New York, July 14th, was suppressed In that paper. In it " Governor Vance declared what the Confederacy fought for, would be won by the election of Seymour and Blair." Governor Wise " denounced as a falsehood that portion of the Democratic platform, which Ialleged the rebellion was dead, and sup ported Blair because he had promised revolution." The Gazette dare not. pub lish that to loyal Democrats of Montana, though it was aliment to the Democrats of Richmond, and a strong argument for the Democratic ticket. " Democrc knows no North no South," It is use less to fabricate and plead .1perversion."

We had no Intention to dodge any point whatever, nor did we. The annul. ment act positively forbids dl Territo rbia Legislature to "grant private char. term or special privileges." 'lb. provis ion is absolute and arbitrary, and we challenge you to publish It. The point the Gazette stumbles on is, tiat all acts paused at the sessions of 1S6 were "de. clared null and void," but byspecial re enactment In each case, the Legislature was empowered to make tiern valid from date of enactment. TlW,, diti nwt cover "ueAartei&'" The point chimied that when vested rights had beer acquired, they stood good, Is also incorrect. The proviso was that "parties claluing vest ed rights, should not be proilblted by the act from testing them in tie Courts." Instead of this, the Legislatur. assumed to decide, and renew them Inviolatlon of the U. S. statute. Aithiugh the annulment act Is amblguouw4 on some points, on these it is clear anc explicit, and a reading will so convince he editor of the Gazette. We have beer ever op posed to these unnecessary, u~pressive monopolies, but over and abve that their "nactment is now illegal and can. not be sustained. The Gaette has made a sorry failure so far in bletering the Illegalities of the late Le~slature. There are several more phase of the legislative picture to challeng. the re buke of the people, and we 411l leave it to do the apologizing and answer ing." _______ A CARD.

This is the Parson'sstyle of uoliciting;mne which every honorable man connected withihe Press would frown upon, but one which is wd in keep lag with the character of the Bankrupt.
