a O of jp or or not the in of off untrue, we will endeavor to con cot the false impression thus made. But we are digressing. The statement statement that Oskaloosa is located within jire miles-oi (he Leaveiiwoith County line is incorrect, and the Gazette man, in his statement to that effect has "un fortunately" got several miles out of the way. Thcreu but one sectional .map of Kansas with which we are acquaint cd, that so represents the location of Oskaloosa, and that is Guun's the very one our frieud admits he look as his guide. That map,in this particular, is incorrect ; and wuenvre called in attention to this f.ict in Lawrence List sinter, Mr. Guun admitted that it was erroniously laid down on his map. tho' not intentionally so, and promised us that in his next edition he would have it corrected. So much for that. The next statement we wish to notice is that which asserts that Osknloosa is on the lino of the Resene. A few weeks ago the Gazette contained an ed itorial synopsis of a treaty made by the general government with the Delaware Indians. Is it possible thai the author of that synopsis is so stupid as to have forgotten in so short i time that there Is no Reserve in Jifferson County 2- Scratch your pate, neighbor, and "stir up your pure mind by way of remem brance." We suppose no person ever claimed that Oskaloosa is in the exact centre of Jefferson County. But if jou drawn line from East to West through the centre of the county from North to South, you will find that the line either pases through or very near this village Then draw another line at right angles across the first, running North and South through the centreof thecoan'v from East to West.and you will find that the two cross each other about half way between Osawkee and Oskaloosa, giv ing but little if any advantage to either of the two towns. But if you will take into consideration the me-aiiderings me-aiiderings of the Kansas R'ucr our sou'h boundary tou will obsenc thaL the portion of the county lying Easl of the line running North and South actually actually contains more territory than tint portion West of the sime line, thus throwing Oskaloosa really nearer the exacl geographical centre of tho county county than any other town. Bui again, the territoiy East of tin dividing line being larger thnn that I West of it, and lving nearer tho Mis souri rirer and the metropolis of llio territory, will contain the greater po- ntlhilku:.inJ.Qlt lltTirrommo'1 Godkt's Laut'sI Book. for October; has been recehed, and is a beautiful specimen of this unequaled fashionable Magazine.
