Jackson Mi.

So sanguine were we, that we required the proprietors to appropriate ten acres of land for the state house square. Upon a commanding eminence near the upper part of this village, at a point sixty-two degrees six chains from the southwest corner of the southeast quarter of section thirty-four, town two south of range one west, we have stuck the stake for the county seat. The proprietors have given a court-house square, a public square, four meeting-house squares, and one college square." This report is addressed to " Lewis Cass, governor of the territory of Michigan," and signed by the commissioners. Gen. Cass approved their finding, and issued his proclamation declaring the village of Jacksonburgh to be the county seat of Jackson county.
