The Iiands Enuing to this Road Under its Grant Continae in their Present State of Reservation Until a Forfeiture is Properly Declared. Department of the Interior, General Land Office, Washington, p. C. Oct. 12, 1877.—Regisi.tr and Receiver,Bozeman, Hontana:—Gentleman: I bare received your letter of July 14th last, asking whether the odd sections withdrawn from the Northern Pacific Bailroad Company are subject to entry, the company having failed .to coostruct its road withih the period prescribed by the statute. By the terms pf the grant the time within which the company was re*, quired to complete the' road expired on the 4th of July last. The Supreme Court of the United States, however, in the case of Schnlen berg vs. Harriman, announced that the provision for reversion is a condition subsequent and cannot operate until 'a declaration of forfeiture, either by some judicial proceeding authorized by law, or by legislative assertion of ownership bn the part of the government has been made. $his office, therefore, has no power to enforce a forfeiture of the grant or restore the lands, .and until action of the above character is taken, the lands will continue in their present state of reservation. Very respectfully, J. A. WlLLIAKSOH, Commissioner. Only Two Red Heads UCcapsss. Hartford Times. There are many who think that the last two Congresses are an improvement on those that drew pay for the ten years prior to that time. There are. /*wer gray heads in the present house than in any previous one. Young men, or at least middle-aged men, predominate, though there are enough of gray heads te make the whole body look respect able, and give it that look of dignity that is necessary. There are but two red heads, the far west sending one and Connecticut the other. I counted six. ty-foar black heads on .the floor several days ago, on the Democratic side alenti. Black anddarkbrowirhair predominate on the Republican Side al so. There are six pure blondes and only six. As usual all wear blaok clothes. There are two or three excep tions, however, Fernando Wood and Clarkson N. Potter, ol New York, hav ing appeared several times on the floor in gray plaid suits.

A few strag gling Indians—not over a dozen—had been met, and, in accordance with in structions, disarmed. From some of these information of the neighborhood of an Indian camp was gathered. Hie camp, when' found, numbered about one hundred Indians, who met Lieut Kishingbury*s party, uninvited, armed and stripped to the breech-cleuti and as the saying took the little scouting party in. In the language of a member of our post trader's establish ment, who was an interested spectator, "he was never more scared in his life. He didn't censider his top-knot Jworth a red." The amount' of it was Lieut. Kishingbur/s little party escaped by giving up the' afaas and releasing the captured Indians. There is no doubt the party were fortunate in escaping on so reasonable terms. CAPTAIN COLLINS, 17th infantry, made a trip to the Flora river, about one hundred miles south west of this post, a 6hort time ago in search of the remains ot a mastodon known t© be in that neighborhood. He succeeded in finding the object of his search, but the bones of the skeleton—a very large one—were so nearly destroyed by the action of the weather as to be scarcely worth removing. Capt. Collins, during his service in this country, has secured a large and interesting collection of fossil remains and petrifications. HIGHLY ROMANTIC. The Good Fortune of a New York Journalist—A Happy Marriage and *1,700,000. It is not often that fate blesses a man with inch entire completeness as happened in the case of a New York journalist a few months ago. He was a fine looking fellow, handsome and distinguished, with just that soupcon of Bohemianism in his appearance that takes with women. On a certain for tunate morning he was sent to report the opening of somethibg or other of a railroad, wheas president was a man of very large for tune, and whose wife, mack younger than humself and ferjr beautiral wa» among tkemostceupilea ous of the guests. Qtir journalist, ot troubled with baShfolness, was pre sented naturally, til jonrnalista al ways de, be made himself agreeaUe. The lady waa pleased, th* attractioo, to a certain extent, waamutual^and bf a singtilur strpke, which must have «mb« jftbm the hand of destiny itself, the ntil rewl magnate shortly after died, leav ing die young and fair widow to msarn and be comforted. Our journalist thought he could do no less under the circumstances than write a letter of condolence, which waa answered by a little note, intimatipg that after a lapse of a proper tkne the lady would be pleased to have him call. He did call, more than oaee, and fifteen meoths after the deatb of the husband pro posed to the widow, was accayted, and the two were married. What is a little singular about the affair is^that he never inquired the amount of the ladj's fortune, and was considerably astonished on the day of the wedding to be presented with securities, repre senting $1,130,000 in value. This amount the lady wished to endsw him with, and make his own right, fest the gallant young, jparoalist absolutely re fused to accept it. He wouldnft even ge shares. He insisted that tia whole amount sbeoldbe settled upon herself, and would eoneent only, to be disburser of the moneys expended for their joint use and benefit. The happy pair sailed for Europe, and.a letter received from him the other day from Tevay, in Switzarlaad, .contained the declaration that he waa "the happiest dog alive that his wife was the best and most charming woman in the worid, and Yevay th« mest *Dchkntlng spot in the universe.—JaaM Jwm-.

Morrissey replied that though con scious of his deficiencies, he bad often thoughts of serious things. The clergy man said that be presumed Morrissey had settled opinions on the subject, and that at least be was a believer. To this he replied affirmatively. "Then," said the clergyman, "if yoa are willing to state it, I should like to know just what you do believe." "I believe." saidMorrissey, "in doing as we agree." A STRANGE STORY. A Cincinnati Schoolteacher Married to Heir Brother hy Mistake. Oakland, (tfd.). Correspondence Weekly Hegfater. Thirtv^tbree years ago a family named Benton, consisting of father, mother,-son and daughter, resided in one of the Western Stotes near a town called Blank. The father was wealthy and lived in style, and his daughter Mabel, a child between two and three years of age, was always elegantly dresaed, and Geerge, the son, a boy of seveivwss prepsring to enter sin' east ern school. One da? little Mabel disap peared and her parents fie**s heardfrom her again, although they- spent thoo nndsef dollars in' searching for her.

George gnw to man hood, and the memory of bio lost sister almost effaced from bis mind. In his 37th year, while visiting a married friend, he fell in lovewith thegpveraees of his' friend's childaen, a beautiful girl of about 23, and after some months they-were marriedAnd lived happily for fire or six years, a boy and girl being b«rn to them during that time. By the death of an undo in San Francisco, George was left a consider able fortune, and the lawyer whe con* yeyed the intelligence to bias also stated that bis sister's career had been traced. A trampon bis death-bed i»a St. Louis police statioa confessed that ho and two companions had stolen little Mabel Ben ton for her clothes and a tocket which she wore, and that she had continued with them for several yeaas, when her bright, pretty face attracted the atten tion of a kind-hearted lady in Ohio, who adopted and sent har to school, where she remained until her patrons died. Mabel then became a teacher in a large school ia.
