FURTHER DECISIONS.--The Register and Receiver of the Land Office at this place are in receipt of a communication from the Commisioner of the General Land Office, under date of September 5th, stating that the case of John Ball vs. The St. Paul and Pacific Railroad Company, for lots 3 and 4, and W 1/2 S W 1/4 Section 13, Township 124, Range 58 (being part of lower St. Cloud), had been decided against Mr. Ball. This tract was also claimed by Mr. George F. Brott, and under an appeal on the part of the Railroad Company to the Secretary of the Interior was considered and decided on by that officer, resulting in a decision in favor of Mr. Brott. A part of this tract was also in contest between Brott and Jos. F. Noel, and was decided by the Department in favor of the former, Oct. 11, 1865. Brott is therefore allowed to enter the tract described upon filing in the General Land Office the relinquishment of the Governor of Minnesota, to the color of the title of the State thereto, the land having been inadvertently certified to the State.--Should the Governor neglect to do this within sixty days, Brott will be permitted to enter under the Act of May 26, 1860. Parties interested are allowed thirty days for appeal to the Secretary of the Interior.
