A town situated thoreia will be laid out and reserved for the people of the colony. Tho necossary buildings and arrangements will bo provided for the first corners, so that shelter and comfort may be cssured to them until thoy shall haTo made their locations. Donations of the necessary land will bo rnade for schools and churohes ; the prices ot' the lands will be guarantoed for a satisfaotory time without any increase of pries, bucause of the increased valué tñrough settloments. Every preoaution will be takpn to have the fullest justioe and fair troatment given to all, while those who are nowíy arrived in the United States will be safely guarded against imposition.
