Tbe streets have not to* many year* beea la as bad
conditio* aa at preeent. The snow in numerous places
has drifted into high banki, which are made still higher
by the contributions from tbe yar 1a and sidewalks of tbe
buildings opposite them. Many of there hill* of enow are
absolutely lBanrmouutaM* for vehleiea ; and as a nonee
qu'n se, the entire line oi travel on many of the priaaipal
atrreta is cjofln-d to the centre of the carriageway, where
there is ecaicely room for two vehlolas to pass abreast.
Thin narrow passsge, and the preclpi'oa< banks on either
sice cause frequent colli, ions, and the utmost oeu'lon is
ceaessary, on the part o: persons driving throujh the
? treats, to prevent beiog entarg'ed with thoie coming
from an opposite dii action At several points there Is
barely room for a single carriage to get alone, and evea
then the occupants are in danger of a capilse.
The narrow (tree's and alleys ara piled np breast high
with snow, and I s removal bv meant of carts will proba
bly be necessary to prevent an ove II iw In the event of a
sudden thaw or ram. Most citizens have adopted the
precaution of clearing cut tbe gu'.ters in front of their

duty. If onlj th* negligent were the enffsrer* by this
species of neglect, It would make lees difference, bat all

That tba ebaage* which have taken place In tbe newteaper

igeaooeof tie iaoraaatd meane whtoh are requirid for aue

aoch aa lacreaae of obariee, aad that tha oommerelat publio
Will obeerfnllv reapond to It, to aay degree whiah publishers

ccnolucion of tha Committee. ....
Th? telegraphic oorreapondoace alone, wbloh haa now be
come a material alament of a newspaper hai added vastly
to the neeeeaar* exposes, without producing a corresponding
ratarn. A large proportion af the ordinary intelligence
which la new eommunloattd by newspapers 6rom day to day,
and whtoh waa foimarly obtained through ohannds which
Involved no expense comparatively, la reoeived by telegraph,
at act at to aome establishments of thenaanda of dollaia a

tha Intricate t lueof the Intel llganoe itself, la neverthe'eee
aa lndlapanaable necessity. The oommerolal publio to a
greater degree than any ether portion of the community, are
directly favored and bencliittd by tbla new medium of intel

traordinarv outlay. No other eouroo of aeirapapar income,
in the natnre of tba eaaa ia adequate to tha exigency.
The extent to which local information ia no n obtained and
?utile)' ed, and tbe gereral praottoe cf procuring repirts of
publio meetings and lectures, may 1 kewlee be regarded ae, la
a great meaaure, aa additional aourae of neeeoaper expendi
ture. Tbe demand for labor of thla description haa not
merely inercaaed with the progreea an* lnoreaaing demand of
eociety among na, but tbe ayit.m la comparatively a new fee
ture of newepaper management. It haa grown to it* preient
imper1 ant proportions wlthla a very few yeare comparatively ;
aad whea the prcaent prioea were established. twoity fire
yeara ago, it waa hardly considered a aerioua item o ' expense.
It ia a ayitem whlob involve* a very ceniiderable outlay ia

Tho perty ore on their *?J to Waahlagtoa city, Md wo
oo faronthetr journey by load. They leaTO oa oa Ohio
river boat to morrow eves lag.
Tho JBepubUcm of thlaetty haa been made eaoeodingly
latim by tho obatiaate oonduot of MM of tho *Pfar
Miasourt . rifor paper*, la atatlag, time aad agata, that
Major Goto wood woa going to maha, wai making, aad
hod made, treitiee with tho aforeaaid Indian trlMO. Tho
editor of tho RmWicm almoet became fraatio at thaoo
announcements, aad at laet declared that Major Gate
wood bad " ao moio authority to aiake treattaa with tho
lidiiu Una 1m hid."
Wo procaine the editor la right. Wo 'appoee that everv
a ib oo) boy haowa that ao private individual nor aabordl
aato oSoer of tho goverameat oaa "make a treaty."
The ooaatltntlon of the United Statee haa aettlod that
matter. Bat yet oa Individual, aa offleor, or a mla later,
raoh aa Nicholas P. TrUt or Major Gate wood, or Goatrol
Gadadea, may very properly receive propoeala for a treaty,
" beat down," suggeet uodifloaUoaa, aad fat tho beet
terma peealblo offered for a t>eaty, aad then aobmlt the
same to tba government at Washington city for ooniider
ation. Thla Major Gatowood haa done. The BepuNica*
baa ipokea, time aad again, of General Gadadaa'a lata
" treaty wtlh Mexioo." Bat la it a treaty, or only a pro
gramme that may become a treaty f tho BepubUoan'i
hatred of Nebraska moat bo iatoaao to daaaart to inch
imbecile hostility.
The facta, we tear a from Major Gatowood, are a a followa:
Ho waa dlreotod to pre Tail oa the I ad lan a meationed to
cooaeat to a treaty with tho United State* far a aale of
their land ; aad ho waa furniahed with writ tea power a of
attorney, wbioh bo waa to yot thoae lodlani to alga,
delegating power to their oh left to go to Waahlagtoa elty
to conclude the treaty. Major Gatowood oould not auo
eeed with thla plaa. Probably the Indiana had aa little
oonfldence la their oblafa aa Ue white people of Miaaoarl
havei la tome of their leadera and public tea a here. At all
eventi, they wanted to haow aomethiag aba at the treaty
their chief* were to make at Waahlngtoa. They wanted
a fcatd in making it. Taerefore, Major G. failed la the
Bra t rcbrme. Bat, oothing dauated. bo went to work
like a lenslble man, aad got the aext boat thlog he oould:
He g~t the Indiana to aay what tort of a treaty they would
make, aad be got the powora of attorney ilgaed, dele
gating cult fa to go oa to Waahlagtoa and ooaoluds the
prcDcttd treaty, with authority granted to the ohle'a to
mcdi y or adapt the treaty to the vlewe of tho Ualted
Statci government Tula la quite aa good aa arrangement
aa the original one, and it satlafied the Indiana. Oir
government ought, aad it no doubt will, be liberal with
them. The tirma o t the treaty agree) to by toem, we
tbtnk, ahi uld be aooepted. They aeem to oa vary liberal,
and we thick the thanka of the country are due to Maj r
Oatewcod for the tact bo ("laplaytd la letting tba IaJlaoe
to propose a treaty, and to aead on chiefa to conclude it.
And bin agreement with the Inllaaa la aa joatly spoken of
a* a " Gatewood'a treaty," aa Gadadea'a with Maxioo aa
'"Gadtden'a treaty "
Theie mattera Ming thai undotatood, wa hope tho Re
fuUtrm'i nervea wllVoot be too much ihooked to b?ar
another repetition of th* particulars of Major Gatewood'a
treaties, by whioh oae half of Nebraeka, Including the
great valley of the Platte, la to be cleared of Iadian title
and opened to white settlement. Bo here goea from the
Savannah Sentinel:?
Tbe main features ef the treaty wi?h the Omabaa ara aa
roUowe:? They cede to the government all the country from
the osrflueaoe of the Great Nebraaka (Platte) with the Mla
lonri, running north aa far ai the louwa ereet and wea? t?
tbe Loupe fort. Tbe land* referred for the foture home* or
theOnahaa la that portion of oountry embrao-d bttweea
tbe louwa oreok aad Neobrarah rlvar. The amount of land
an braced In tbia treat? It about 8 000.000 aore?, whioh will
probably include G SCO. 000 ef good or arable land, for whioh
It la itipnlated that they ?ball receive $40,000 u J ear for the
term of thirty years, payable aeml annually, forutih them
with a blaekasith, gunamith, break two hondred aorei of
land and pro leet them from the Bloux.
TheOttoet treated February 4. Tbe amenat of land em
braced ia thia treaty is between two aud three millima of
aerea. for which it ia eiipulated that the government ahall
pay th<m $11,000 annually for the apace of thirty yeara The
land they re ?r\e lcr tbeir future otcupaney Uee due weit
from old Fort Kearney, upon tie weet aHe of the Big Blue,
balng ten milei in width and running weet iadeflaitily.
The Pawnees are oat on a boat, but they have been ready
to treat for a long time, and the otler tribea having caded,
there la no douit about them.
Tho quantity of lacd bargained for by these treaties
amocnta, It la raid, to about 10,000 (00 aoroa. The isope
of countries estaads trom tho mouth of the Groat Nemaba,
near tho northern boundary lino of Mlaeourl, to the
