Plattpmouth needs manufactories
paper mills, and caning factories, and
capitalists looking for a location to es
tablish such enterprises, can receive
liberal aid from our people if they will
but call upon ua.
Plattbkoctii needs a pood flouring
mill. Cannot we induce some practi
cal miller, with means, to establish
himself here with such an enterpribe.
Substantial assistance will be guaran
teed by our people to a man of enter
prise, thrift, and means in this line.
Plattsmoutii needs another rail
road to open up the way southwest
from this point; not that our city or
people are unfriendly to the old relia
ble U. & M., which has done so much
towards making us a city, but because
another road would still add to our
greatness and future growth.
Samuel J. Tilden is ominously re
ported, every few days, to be in excel
lent health. One correspondent de
scribes the sage of Gramarcy hard at
work, with rosy cheeks and glittering
bright eyes. Evidently Mr. Tilden is
not on the superanuated list yet; but
on the contrary, is liable to break a
lance with the other ambitious aspir
ants in the next democratic presiden
tial tournaments in a manner that will
make tho Waterson-Carlisle free trade
knights dizzy-headed. Look out for
Plattsmouth will, from the evidence
we see on hauda, experieaco a healthy,
prosperous year during 'SS. Improve
meats are springing up on all hands,
and our citizens are evidencing a decided
disposition toward substantially beautify
ing and improving their homes. Old fen
ces arobeing removed and substantial ones
placed in their stead; lawns are being
leveled, terraced and beautified with
schrubbery of all kinds; streets and al
leys are being cleaned and put in good
pasaablo repairs; residences are being
erectei of a better class th-a heretofore,
and everything to the observant oye
from tho busine:? center to the remotest
nooks of our outlaying additions, bears
unmistakablo evidence of thrift and
prosperity. Much will doubtless be
called for by these citizens who are im
proving their property, in tho way of
city improvements; an 1 the Herald
wishes to suggest to tho incoming city
goTcrnment, the necessity of doing what
is necessary to be ia the way oi" city im
provements in a durable-and thorough
manner. In the first place Main street
should be thoroughly overhauled; it is a
beatiful wide street upon which ii to a
great extent emptied the water from rain
and melting snow, from the higli so hool
and north hills. AVith inferior sidewalks
on a level with the street, there is scarce
ly a perceptible gutter; shallow gutters
have been heretofore cleaned out on each
side, which with the first raiu or two, we
notice are all filled up and especially
upon the upper end of this street, the
heavy rains flow upon tho sidewalks in
places and over them, damaging the
property of business men. It is a small
matter for the city to put in ood gut
ters; but first the bidewalks should be
extended some feet further into the street
upon both sides, and then our city can
make those permanent improvement
which wc need. The time will como in
the Bear future when this street will !..
paved ; md the city will find that is a
ery expensive improvement, cspecia!:y,
upon Ter wide streets. Also, cen.iiu
streets ought to be regulated and opened,
both in the additions npon the west und
south side of the city. It is due the cit
izen and tax payer that he bo furnihi-d

The National Temperance .Society has
recently secured the services of Rev. C.
II. Mead, of New York, and Edward
Carswell, of Canada, to visit the Southern
Slatca and deliver temperance addresses,
mainly among the the freedman, to visit
schools and institutions of learning, cir
culate a literature, and seek to advance
the causo generally in that section of
country. These men are thoroughly
posted upon every phase of tho question,
and arc among the most popular and ac
ceptable lecturers lu the land. Mr.
Mead startedgtho ltut of January, and
Mr. Carswell will follow in a few weeks.
The calls lor this kind of work are bo
numerous and pressing that the society
could not refuse to enter the open door
of uaefuluebs. The society is also send
ing large amounts of literature to differ
ent portions of the South for free dis
tribution among churches, schools, insti
tutions of learning, and to the people
generally. A pamphlet is also to be sent
to minis tern of colored churches as far
and fast as funds will allow. Let the
friends of the causo and freedmcn send
donations for this specific work to the
society, 53 IJeade street, every dollar of
of which will be sacredly devoted to this
social object. National Temperance
Advocate, for February.
HOW TO FORM PUBLIC OPINION.
A recent number of the Christian
Union, presented the replies of eight
prominent and representative cleigj
men and civilians to its inquiry, v. hat
practical measures they could suggist
to reduce the present evils of drunk
enness and the liquor traffic. These
replies are candid and well considered,
and worthy of attention in the import
ant discussion that is to engage the
public thought. While most if not all
the writers are decided friends of tem
perance in theory and practice, it is
noteworthy that nearly all concur in
the conviction that the country is not
yet prepare 1 for the adoption of pro
hibitory measures, as the public senti
ment is not thoroughly educated so as
to sustain the enforcement of such
laws when they are enacted. This
opinion, if correct, a3 it doubtless is.
makes the way plain for a diligent use
of means for forming a right public
opinion. A question that affects so
ciety bo vitally in all its relations, de
mands careful thought and investiga
tion. The pulpit and the press should
turn their revealing and illuminating
light upon it, and clear it from the ig
norance and sophistry that cloud so
