ycnaSaCoantj- Agrlcaltsral Fair.
j The officers of the Nemaha County
Agricultural Society have determined to
hold the first annual Fair ca Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday, October 13ih, Hth
and 15th. The ?rcund selected is on the
farm cf Judge Jesse Cole.
la oiTerinj 'remiiims, the Society has
adopted anew system which we are firm
ly of the opinion will result ia creating
end perpetuating an agricultural spirit un
surpassed,' at least, ia any country the
age of ours. ISo money premiums are
offered bfthlssociYty." AH are appropriate
agricultural periodicals or . works. This
plan cannot fail to "be productive of the
greatest good. Orer' three hundred xveek
Jy, semi-weekly, and monthly papers, de
voted exclusively to agricultural interests
will thus be circulated ia this. county j be-
tidesa large number joi standard books
vpoa various subjects connected there
with. ' ' .- - :
We have for a number of years, teen
concerned in getting up and conducting
Agricultural Fairs, and have ever been
ia favor of this system.' We know "there
are many who usually compete for pr'em
'iums whose real interests extend no farther-
than being permitted to carry off a
few dollars of the society's money. Such
-rnembers,howeverare worth very little,
if anything, to such associations. We
want .members whose object and desires
are to excel in . the exhibition of stock,
r 1 . e .
. We trut there is not a farmer or me
chanic . ia Ne maha ' county but : who will
take' hold' of this matter ia earnest, with a
determination that this county shs.ll ever
maintain her present position at the head
of the list in the Territory. We have the
'land;' we t"have ihe , intelligent enterprise
iag farmers"', and" we only need concert of
action, and ."every shoulder to the wheel."

The .Missouri river is now in good
boating .order, and we may safely expect
a steamer wiihia at least ten days. , On
-JLlonday the ice gorge above broke loose
and for two days the river was completely
' filled .with floating ice. It is. now clear,
vwhh a handsome rise of three and a half
.feet. . . r. . .
The .Florilda and R viand arrived at St.
.Josrphpn the 9th, filled with passengers.

"here by stage, that Jefferson City was fil
led to overflowing with those seeking ' a

;:.Lac(! Sales-fThe way It .Works.
"'t ' In speaking of Land Sales and the re
sult following, the Council Bluff Bugle
..says: . .. . . . . ,r
; The' Land Office ia this City was open
ed for private entry on the 23d ult., and
at the closing of the office on. Saturday
evening, over eighty-four thousand acres
, had be en .entered, being an average of
near seventeen thousand acres per day.
The entries are mostly made with Land
Warrants, and we think, mostly on spec
ulation, although we notice a great many
'who1 were making entries for actual culti-vatiori.-
-' " - 1 ' ,
' At the railroad speed with which the
' Register is making entrys, it will take but
a very short time to clear the Council
Bluff's district of all the land subject to
private entry. -
.Some of our friends have thought that
the opening of the Land Office would
make times better; but we .think it will
have the contrary effect. Every man in
the country who can raise fifty dollars is
adding a 'Forty' to his 1 farm, and Uncle
' Sam will ship the money to the East, when
' we, of the West, ' may bid it a long fare
well. . ;

improbable. There is more likelihood of
truth in the., stcry. that General Harney
and Colonel Sumner have had some cor
respondence looking to a duel. There
was a difficulty between them last sum

Harney sitting as a member .of his court
martial. Both gentlemen have been at
Washington for seme days, and it is said
that shortly after their, arrival, Sumner
addressed a note' to Harney, asking him
to meet him outside of the District . Gen.
Harney sent the "note to the Secretary cf

nnote.'to Col. Sumner, stating that he in
tended to make it an official matter for
investigation, and he has accordingly pre
ferred, charges ajjainst Sumner.. Colonel

'who "would screen himself by his official

have left the District, one for the North
and' the other for the South.

A correspoadent of the tsame paper
gives the following as the cause of the
difficulty between Clay and Cullom:
Messrs. Clay and Cullom happened to
meet on Saturday evening in the drink
ing saloon attached to Brdwn's ' Hotel,
when the latter 'invited Mr. Clay to join
him in a glass of brandy. Mr. Clay ex
cused himself on. the ground that he had
that moment drunk with another friend.
Mr. Cullom insisted and Clay "yielded."
The former then commenced a eulogy on
Old Harry Clay,' and told how he (Cul

defence -of Henry Clay.' Mr.1 James B.
Clay thanked him for j his-devotion to

had dons the same" thing. (The reader
must recollect th.1n:the contest beiween

rage at this remark, and shaking his fist
in Mr. Clay's fa :e, asked- him if he in
tended to insult Lira. The latter replied
that, such was farjrom hi3 intention, but
that he did not altogether like the dem

IIox. R. W. Tv&sis:
pear &V Yours of the 17ta was re
ceived yesterday; aid I take pleasure in
complying with your request, as I am wil
ling to see all the farts go before people.
I have just publishei a statement in the
J"ews, of the 20th, orer jny signature con
taining all the information desired, by
you. Lest you should fail to see that pa"
per, I will however state that the 'exact
words' endorsed upca the bills presented
to him on the 12th day of January by Mr.
Allen and and myself enrolling commit
mittee of the Council , arid Mr.Taggart,
Mr. Hail, and Mr. Abbe enrolling'com
mitte of the House, were as follows :
'Tais paper -was left in my room on
yesterday, Jan. '13th, 1S5S, - after I had
refused to receive it. I neither veto nor
approre it ; but very respectfully return
"Jan. 14th, ISoS." :
. Upon our introduction to the Govern
or, Mr. Allen notified him that we were
the enrolling committees of both branch
es of the Legislature, and that we had a
number of bilh to present, to him for his
approval. The Governor then advanced
and took the bills, out of the hands of Mr.
Allen and Mr. Taggart, remarking that
he should take no action ori them, that, he
htd not been engaged in the controversy;
that if . our proceedings .were legal, and
our acts valid, be would not so much as
as throw a straw-.. in the way of. their be
ing declared so by the Courts, Sec.. Wbea
reminded ! by ra that the Legislature
would consider them laws if not returned
with his objection within three days, and
being asked whether in that case he would
would file them in the oflice of the Secre
tary cf the Territory, ' he. hesitated,J but
finally answered that, that 'was.a matter
which required consideration.,'. - ,
'He also said, during our conversation,
that ifi the .Legislature ever passed the
Capital bill -fairly; he would not veto it ;
that he thought it his duty to aid in carry
ing out the will of the people, as expres
sed by a majority of her Representatives.
The above is the substance , cf the con
versation with the Governor. As to the
manner in which the bills were returned
you, probably know as much as I do.
v They were never returned to the Leg
islature at all, but were thrown down upon
a table at'the WiUett House, surrounded
by' a promiscuous company of members
and others, about 9 6'clock at, night. I
believe with you that those Acts are laws,
and nd one more sincerely regrets than I
do that the Governor jcould not in
his heart to act with theiarge majority of
the Legislature, r The simple fact of his
being a democrat, does not satisfy me (as
it seems to satisfy the Editor of the Ae?s,:)
nor do I believe it .will satisfy the people,
unless his acts correspond with his pro
fessions. It will be remembered that
Governor Izard was a Democrat ; but his
mere professions did not satisfy the peo
ople, nor yet the aforesaid editor.
. I, ; however, am jiot .yet disposed to
distrust the - Governor. , T hope and
believe he will yet act m'A.and for
the people. I think he has been deceiv
ed. He was led to believe that if he
took a stand against the legality of the
procsedings of the majority, and request
ed them to return to Omaha, that they
would do so. But he had heard but one
side of. the story, and mistook the temper
of the people, and I shall continue to be
lieve that he will be found on the people's
side, as soon as a "favorable opportunity
presents itself.
. The News, in commenting upon my ar
ticle seems determined to impress it upon
his readers, that the majority are opposed
to submitting, the Capital question to the
people, and that the minority would vote
for such a till. Nothing could possibly be
farther from the truth. .If the people
ask for it, let it be submitted; bntl wiir
venture the prediction that a majority of
the 'Minority' will vote against any fair
proposition to remove the Seat of Gov
ernment; It is plain to be seen that all
this '.'f us' about submitting the Capital
question to the people is for the purpose
of throwing sand in the eyes of the peo
ple and diverting them from the real is
sue.. . The question is , have the people's
Representatives the right to legislate up
on, this subject? I have no objection to
submitting the matter to a vote of the peo
ple ; but, before this can be done, the bill
must be passed by the Legislature ; and
according to the News, the majority must
'promise' not to agitate this matter , be;
fore the Governor will call an extra ses
sion. Verily, if the minority can have
everything their own way, it will be a
long time before it will be submitted to a
vote of the people, and I think it will be
a long time before the majority will buy
the privilege of returning to Omaha, by
sacrificing the rights of the people.
: Respectfully yours,
The above letter from Hon. M. S.

language endorsed upon each bill returned j
by the Governor ?" It had been said that 1
we had misrepresented. Having no desire
whatever to do sointentonally,we addressed
Mr. Reeves the abeve interrogatoryand
ndy cheerfully make public his reply.
There is, however, as will be seen on
comparison, no difference in spirit or
substance,(retween our statement and 'the
above. ' "'J . " 1
Foreign Correspondence-
' " r ': ' Paris, Feb. 2,' 1S58.''
Deak Fcrsas:
' I have been absent the last few weeks,
which will account for the interruption in
my correspondence. , On my return here
I find that I would come 'slightly behind,'
if I. attempted to stat8 the several events
that have occurred during my absence, as
doubtless you, are already fully posted in
regard to them. The principals are the
death cf Radetzky, the Austrian butcher
in Italy, and of those two renowned f e
tors Mile. Rachel aad Lablache; and
finally, the late attempt upon the life of
Napoleon. The sensation produced by it
is far from subsiding,' and, therefore, it
may be proper to make it the main subject
of this letter.
The narrow escape oi theErcperor and
Empress; the boldness f the attempt, and
especially the manner in which it had been
prepared, combined, and executed ; have
caused a great deal cf consternation
among the family and ; partizans of the
Emperor. " New developments serve to
increase the fear, for they show that the
attempt of the Rue Lepclldier was not an
isolated one; similar attempts upon the
lives of the Pope and the Kings cf Naples
and Piedmont, having teen previously re
solved by the conspirators ; and that in
England, Belgium, Switzerland. Italy and
Spain, the revolutionary refugees were
ready; had Orsini succeeded, to make an
irruption into France and raise the stan
dard of insurrection everywhere through
out' Europe. 'According to the confession
of Rudio, one of the prisoners, the con
spirators were five -hundred ia number.
The conspiration still fully exists; for ev
ery one of the five hundred is bound by
oathto destroy the. life of the Emperor.
As- often as the circumstances will war
rant the attempt, the whole band are to
draw lots from a box in which there will
be five winning numbers, and the five
members winning these are held to put in
execution an attempt upon Louis Napo
leon's life. Consequently, if the confes
sion of Rudio is true, the unsuccess of the
late attempt will not prevent others from
repeating it, which probably does not of
fer a very smiling prospect for the Empe-
ror- 1 '..'-V- ' . .' "
But very likely,'the only result of the
attempt will be the curtailment of the lib
erties of the French people, to' us the
language of Mr. Bonaparte, which means
that their fetters will be tightened. Al
ready a decree has appeared , ia the JLW
iteur, dividing France" into five military
divisions, each of which will be' comman
ded by a' Marshal of- France. The com
manders, i is said, are designated, and, of
course are chosen among the most devoted
to the Empire; it suffice to name them:
Castellane, Bosquet, Canrobert, Baraguay
d'Hilliers and Magnan. The supreme
control over all these divisions will be giv
en ta Pelissier: The deeree states that
one of the objects of the new organiza
tion is to secura a greater facility in the
suppression of troubles within, the State,
as each of these Marshal-Governors will
have extended powers in his department.
bo that what 1 told you some time ao
will be fully realized : France, is to be ua
der the despotism of the Sabre,' the worst
of all. - '..... .
. The Press will also suffer tv it. '. The
liberty of the Press amounts to almost no
thing; but it seems that new restrictive
measures are to be decided on. Several
journals 'have already been infoned that
they would be suppressed if they did not
moderate their language for the future.
A journal has been "warned,'.' for adding
after its notice of the Emperor'e speech,
at the opening of the Legislative bodies,
hat "According to the telegraph, the
cheering which followed his . Majesty's
discburse was most enthusiastic." The
offense was in these words: "According
to the telegraph," thus leaving a doubt,
when, says the -warning, "Every one
knows that the cheering must have been of
the character indicated."
Yesterday, a bill Was introduced in the
Legislative. Chambers, empowering the
Executive to remove from Paris all per
sons who may be deemed dangerous to
the public safety. Another bill .provides
for the constitution of a Council of Re
gency, in case of the Emperor's . sudden
death. What next?
