Secretary of Nebraska.
We are pleased to announce that J.
Steklipg Mortox, of Nebraska City,
has been appointed by the President, Sec
retary of Nebraska, vice Hon. T. B. Ccm
isc, deceased. We are pleased, because
a Tesident of Nebraska has been appoint
ed ; because a young man brim full pf the
go-ahead-ativeness, peculiar to the age
and country has been appointed ; because
one whose occupation heretofore has been
to "drive the quill" vulgarly called Edi
torhas been appointed. We believe
Mr. Morton possesses the natural in
tellect and other necessary qualifica
tions to make a cood Secretary. Al-

Omaha, April 19, 15JS.
There appears to be a disposition on
the fart of the legislative authority of our
cities of Nebraska,' to keep property hold
ers in continual unseasines3 in conse
quence of the often uncalled for and un-
corAsistentmriiaagement of the affairs of
the city, by making requirements which
they endeavor to exact, but which u is
next thing to impossible to have fulfilled.
Ordinances are passed to accomplish cer
tain objects, and attempts are made to put
them in force, but, frcm the fact that they
arh often illegal'the plans cannot be car
ried out. There are some property hold
ers, both residents and non-residents, who
are always ready and willing to share
the burdens of taxation, and who are the
first to clear themselves of ihe collector's
claims upon them, whilst there are others
who grumble and complain at every as
ing fallen during this month, and that
about one foot in depth. Much improve
ment has been made to the Fort in the
way of building for the comfort of the
occupants within the last year.
The steamer Omaha City was loaded at
