Ihave been. Their disagreement is
Msaid to I, irreconmilable, and prin
cipally that if fraud be discovered,
tthe Ilhse as represented by Cobb, of
Indiana, wants the patent annulled,;

hold for the old principle laid down
for year halnt the innuocent purchaser
a. must and will be protected, and while
it may be necessary to legislate to this
a. effect, yet even were the House to sue
c! eed, we believe that the principle ia so
h. well founded that the courts would
overthrow it. The old lawrof 1841, that
all transfers of land prior to issuance
n of patent were null and void and
i would call for cancellation, was over
a. thrown on the fact that after accepting
proof,* and money and the purchaser
Sgetting the Receiver's receipt that there
.. being no frauld ,m the face of it, the
SIassuane of the patent could only be
dclerical, and was, or could be comn
r polled, andl it was held that transfers
I. could he lawfully made. The govern.
raest fully reeagnised this in Agricult- I
aral College Script issued to states, and
Sby them sold to pre-etmption settlers,
who, after making their proofs and
plncing this script on their lands re.
crived a receipt on the back of which
was a blank for transfer of the property r
described to any one, anticipating un.
der former administrations two to
I three years, and if Sparks prevents

eternity.
The aennte also wishes to preserve a
I~rtion (8-') of the 610 acres) of the 1

thie reclamation made in three years i

aIeans water alone, or if it includes w
builingl, fences and other improve. f
nmests, as in other acts, we have not yet b
ascertained. We have caue to rejoice
that Sparks in this is for the present s
squelched, and hope the administre- p.
tiam is realizing that he is unfit for the m
important position of Land Commis
sioner and will have removed him ere
nanther sesion of congress.
