Sir : About six months since my
attention was called by Atr. Hisdou
of Lane county, to the importance
of having approved the indemnity
lauds selected by the Mate, in lieu
of the 10th and 30th sections, that
in many places had been settled
upon. Many of those who have
become purchasers of these "lieu
lands;'' and have made valuable
improvements, have lieen quite un
easy in consequence of these lands
not having lieen approved. I am
pleased now to inform you that the
Commissioner has used every effort,
since I brought the matter to his
attention, to have prompt aetiou,
and I now enclose the letter inform
ing mo of the approval of list Xo.

Here's what the Chicago Jiepubli
ccmj says on Blair's suggestion o!
running the poet l?rvant as a can
didate for the Presidential chair
agahvt Grant :
llhtir's idea is a queer one, to
run ilhamt ullen I rvant against
Grant as the figure-head of tho sore
head Kepuolicaus ami discouraged
Democrats, on a platform of free
trade. Air. Bryant is as venerable
as Horace Greeley ; he, too, par
takes of thebraiirbread which cheers
but not inebriates ; he neither af
fects profanity, prize strawberries,
protection or preposterous panta
loons. Being aooet, he could send
down his annual message in rhyme,
devoting one canto to San Domin
go, ro.d another to the reduction ot
the Debt, and could write his own
campaign songs. Thanks be to the
bran-bred, he has lived so long that
most lit his relations are dead. He
never was a tanner, in every re
speet he is superior to Mr. Grant as
a fashionable candidate. By all
means let us Have Mr. Bryant for
our next President.

The news comes from Xew York
that on the 6th in4. Col. .Tamos
Fisk, Jr, was shot and probably
fatally wounded by Pdwarl S.
Stokes. It seems that after the
close ot the Fisk-Manslieid case, in
the afternoon, Stokes repaired to
the iieighborhood ot the Grand
Opera Hour?, Twenty-third street,
where he remained until Fnk left
the building in a carriage for the
Grind Central 1 iotel tor the pur
pose of pavi ig a visit to a Miss!
.Morse. Stokes did not follow him,
Jmt went directly to the same hotel,
arriving some twenty minutes boliiie
h'isk did. On arriving at the ho1
tel, Col. Kisk entered by the pri
vate entrance, and after making
some inquiries and giving some di
rect.ions.to be carried to Miss Morse
by a Ikiv whom ho casually mot,
started to go up stairs, and" had
gone about two htejis, when, look
ing up, saw Stokes at the head of
the ttairs, who instantly tirejd two
shots from a pistol at Fisk, the
first passing into his body two
inches above the naval, tint ether
penetrating through the right arm.
Fisk leaned up against the wall
faying, "I am hurt ; I am badly
wounded." Stokes in a few sec
onds walked coolly into the ladies'
parlor, where he threw his revolver
on the i-ofa.theu quickly passe i down
the staircase leading to the office,
As he pased the office he raid, "I
guess there's somebody hurt iip
stairs." He then broke to run to
wards the liai'ier shot). Tho pro
prietor of the hotel having heard
the pistol reports, shouted to the
portci's, etc., to "stop that man."
They took alter him and caught
him just as lie turned into the bar
ber shop, anff hrough.t him back
and detained him until an officer
came. He was then taken to the
Fifteenth Precinct Station House
where he was locked up in the Cap
tain's room In the meantime,
physicilttts probed Fisk's wound,
and failing to discover the ball, pro
nounced that the chances wore
against his recovery. Fisk hoard
the decision calmly, sent for Dudley
Field, who drew up his will, which
was duly attested.
The news flying over the city
created intense excitement, especial
ly among politicians. In a quarter
of an hour after the i ccurrence, t he
hotel was 'besieged by a multitude
clamoring fur intelligence, and a
large force of police had to be de
tailed to prevent intruders from en
tering the wounded man's chamber.

has most effectually disponed of the
case, so far as Fisk is coucerned,
and, it is to lie hoped, so far as he
is concerned. X injury of a pecu-
uiary character, which Fisk may
have done Stokes, would justify
him in assuming the role of a das

law. Society then will be the
