This enterprising Banking firm of this
ci.v Ure just moved into their new build
ing cn Main street, erected expressly for
their purpose. The building is without
cojlt the most admirably arranged Bank
ing House in Nebraska, or perhaps in
ibis western country; open front of the
latest style; circular counter, over which is
s Lamlsome and artistically executed arch.
The main business room is large and con
veniently arranged. In the rear are
vcreral consultation rooms. In short the
shole interior arrangements of the house
sre most admirably adapted to the pur
poses for which they are used.
( In regard to Messrs. LrsiiBArcn cc
Cahsox, we take pleasure in saying that
their course as business men evincing
of fine business qualifications, gentle
manly arid accommodating in their inter
course since locating in this city, has
ken such as to secure for them the confi
dence and respect of all with whom they
Lave transacted business in fact all who
Iiavd formed their acquaintance. We
wiih them a continuance of such success
n's they have thus far met with; and
further feel that we are doing no more
linn justice, when we say to those at a
distance,- having business here in their
line, that they need have no hesitancy in

James W. Coleman.
It is not our intention, through the
columns cf the Advertiser, to say a single
word for cr against any of our county
candidates. What we here say is in de
fence of Mr. Coleman as a citizen mere-
intimate acquaintance with Mr. Coleman;
tnowing him to be an honest and upright
man in every respect, we feel it to be our
duty when his character is assailed, to
present a statement of facts.
We learn that reports arc in circulation
in some parts of this county, that Mr.
Coleman improperly used funds taken
from the counterfeiter Hess, who was ar
rested in this vicinity some weeks ago;
5 and further, that Hess was foully dealt
with at the suggestion and by aid of Mr.
Now the facts are, that about the Sth of
July last, a counterfeiter by the name of
Wm. Hess came into this city, and passed
S10 counterfeit money on euch of six of
. our linslnpso finiiSPS. Thp discowrv be-
--. " - J
' ir.j made, J. W. Coleman and Wm.
Hays, as special deputies by Esquire
John, were sent in pursuit of Hess. They
found and arrested him at Nebraska City.
Very prudently, and as is always done,
tlipy searched him, finding upon his person
S132 30, all of which afterward proved
to be genuine, except $10. Coleman and
Hays brought Hess to this city, and deli
Tered him in charge of the Sheriff, after
vhich they had no more to do with him.
The enly apology for a jail in this county
leing an indifferent thrown aside log
cabin, the fellow Hess made his escape
tie night after his arrest, stole the ferry
inland made for St. Joseph, where he
ta$ been since seen, and, in fact, from
which poii.t he wrote to Mr. Coleman in
reeard to some letters left in his charge.
After the escape of Hess, Mr. Cole
man look legal advice as to what course
to pursue with the funds in his hands. It
as unanimously agreed that the money
Loul4 be used tirt to redeem the coun
: ffeit money passed to various individu-
ls in this city, and then pay off costs
which otherwise would have been to be
r faid ly the county. Mr. Coleman did so
as tar as the money went it lacked SO
Paying off all costs and redeeming the
cunterfeit money and he now has the
i receipis fqr every dollar paid out.'
5 As to Hess being foully dealt with
.to ary serious extent at least that is all
1 1 fabrication from beginning to end. From
t uat we can learn, a few of our citizens,
j kiting this fellow to be one of a gang
j f ruffians infesting this country, went to
j t cabin where he was confined at night,
1 ,0 cain what information they could as
confedeiates. Failing to obtain any-
definite, they gave him perhaps the
j rU end .of a brush pretty freely until
j hd confess. With this, even, Mr. C
had nothing whatever to do; knew noth
ing about it. Hess, in a letter to Mr.
Coleman, fully exhonerates him from any
connection with his ill-treatment.
So far as Mr. Coleman was concerned
in this matter, we have given the facts;
by which, we repeat, we think we are
doing him but justice as a citizen.
We regret to announce than an acci
dent occurred on the fair ground track,
which resulted in the quite severe injuring
of our young friends T. W. Bedford and
H. M. Atkinson. They were driving a
spirited pair of horses on the track that
took fright from some cause, ran away,
dashing the carriage to pieces against a
tree, and severely injuring the occupants
above named. We learn from Dr. Hol
laday tliat no fears are entertained but
what both will very shortly recover the

Chronicles or Jonathan.
Now, in the Land of Jonathan, in the province
calkd Nebraska, the people had buitded a City ; and
they called it Omaha, after the name of the heathtn
who had been driven therefrom.
2 And the people of Nebraska, every year for the
space of four jcjis, pent men from the City of Oma
ha, or that side of the river, to t&e Sanhedrim, at
3 And they did get fur Omaha and for tho Coun
try round about, iiiUch gold and silver, yea, even
lucre than a niiiliou of shekels.
4 For a road, running to the west country from
Omaha, they got a hundred thousand shekel; and to
coutinue the tame road, eight hundred thousand she
kels. 5 And for a road running noith from the River
Platte, they got fixty thousand shekels, aijd to bt.i d
the Ureat Temple for the Sanhedrim, one hundred
6 but the country south of tho River they neglec
ted. 7 Now the people who lived in Omaha were very
crafty, yea, even ruorc than all the children of Jona
than. 8 And they made many presents to the Chief Ru
ler of Nebraska, and did bribe and corrupt him with
many pieces of silver, an J with parcels of ground,
otherwise called Corner Lots.
9 And the chief Kulcr barkened unto their voice,
and granted their request, and said the Sanhedrim
should meet in Omana, and tho Temple should bo
10 And the children of Jonathan, living in Oma
ha, said a hundred thousand shekels of silver is not
enough, wo will go in debt, and build a Tempie
whoso top shall reach up to Heaven, and we will get
us a name, and become great; and our Ci'y shall bo
the largest in all the lund of Jonathan ; and the
Railroad that tho people :f Jonathan will build,
from the gret Sea n tne Last, to the great Sea on
the West, even Lota Dan to lie-erheba, shall pais
through our City.
11 Moreover, the Children of Jonathan shall pay
us fr the niney we spent building our Templo.
12 And it came to pass at one of the Hirelings of
the Sanhedrim, certain of the men of Omaha, being
vinlfiit, and under the influence ( win, hich bo
in interpreted ineaueth Itol-Uut created a tumult,
mid fought with the men of ho Sanhedrim.
13 Then waj? the wrath of the people of Nebraska
kindled agaiutt Omaha.
14 Hut tho pooplff of Omaha said, behold, is not
all Nebraska angry withua? Go t", let us devise
some means to turn thtir attention from us, lest
tbey rcmuve the Sanhedrim from our City, and re
fu to send one of our number every year to Wash
ington, and will not let us do just as we please.
15 Is there not in Nebraska divers tribes, chief
am-'iig which is the Democratic tribe and the Re
publican tribe. (Jo to, let us agitate the people, and
bavc the (arty lines drawn, and when the candidates
are chosen from the different tribes ono will always
be from our side of the river.
16 And then we can always have a counsellor in
the Sauhcdriui at Washington. For we will cast
our lots for our own man.
17 So meeting! were held at Omaha to organiee
the Democratic tribe : and it was also propose4o
organize the Republican Tribe.
IS liut the people of Nebraska aid i is not good
that party lines should be drawn. Il will act
brother against brother, and son against father, and
son-in-law against father-in-law; it will engender
strife, and heart-burning, and tumult.
It So the people would not at that time harken
to their voice.
20 liut tho next year the crafty men of Omaha,
other-wiso called the wire-workers, were more wary,
and succeeded ia pulling wih.I over tho eyes ot the
Kxiple, and they induced tho Tribes to tnot in con
vention, and to choose, each tribe a candidate from
aun ng its own men.
21 1 he Democratic Tribe chose one of the Children
of Ouiithn, aud the Republican Tribe choose one of
the Children of the land on the South of the River
22 Then was Robert the printer, arid also many
others of both the tribes, sorely displeased, and tbcy.
said, organizing the Tribes was all folly there was
no difference in politics that could possibly affect
the people of Nebraska at thxt time either fvr good
or for evil.
23 And they ?a id, as for u wc will cast cur lots,
with one accrd, for our tieigbbor, even fr Samuel.
24 Then Were the people in Omaha, and the peo
ple in the Provinse of Iowa, in a very great strait.
25 And they said j Is it not necessary to our in
terests that Experience sent to the Sanhedrim,
and that the rop!e of Omaha shall receive mora
talents r.f gold and shekels of silver for their Tem
ple, and that roads thould made, and that appro
priations for Asylums and for Colleges, and for In
stitution ;f learning should bo granted north of
the River Platte, and thatcountry receive every en
couragement ar.d stimuioas to become populr-us and
wealthy; s'i that when the children of Jonathan
make the Great Railroad from Dan to Be-ersheba,
onetimes called the Pacific, it will go through Oma
ha and Council bluffs and Central Iowa.
26 For they feared if the Counsellor was ecnt
from south Platte, that he would nse his influence
to get appropriations for his own section to counter
balance those given to the North, and the great rail
road Wiull be located In its natural channel, on the
south of the River.
27 And the Chief Rulers oTer the land of Jonathan
who were called the Administration, were exceed
ingly anxious that Experience should tt chosen, for
he was their friend.
23 Now Old buck and his friends sent epistles to
their friends, and to the officials in Nebraska, and ad
vised them what to do. Then did all the officials
suddenly profess to be friends to Stephen, whose
snr-name was Douglas ; and they went to and fro
through the land, and spke to the people, and per
suaded thtm to cast their lots for Experience.
29 And the Administration had delivered much
money into the bands of the Official at the City uf
30 And the OuchIs Lircd men who had ready
tongues, men who scrupled not to lie and to slander,
as well as those who were upright and honorable
men who were well skilled in ail the artscf sophis
try, shrewd lawyers and buffoon priests, who with
sounding brafs and tinkling cvmbal, could deceive
the simple and unwary, aod make them think right
was wrong and wrong was right who could distort
beauty till it appeared hideous, and enibelish loath
some deformity till it seemed altogether lovely.
31 And thejr traveled to atdlro and upanddown
through tho land, and with much eloquence did they
glorify and exmWt Thomas Jefferson and the democ
racy of his time ; and some of them did invent scores
of falsehoods and slanders against Samuel and his
tribe, and perverted the histoiy ol their counTy, and
resorted to every trick by which they thought they
could deceive the people.
32 Rut about the present Dcmoerat'c Parly of
James buihanan, and his fire-eating-disunion advi
sors, and his corrupt oCfi;ia Is, his extravagant squan
dering of millions cf pieces of silver, his beheading
officers who could not pronounce Lecompton ; his
trifling and radiation with the Mormons, und bis
violation of pledges about tho public land, few of
them opened their oouthes.
33 forth y knew that these things had caused
want, and poverty, and suffering throught tho land.
34 Rut ia all Nebraska there was not found men
enough to speak for Experience, so they did send to
the province of Iowa lor a High Priest, who wanted
railroads fem foica to exttnd on west in Nebraska;
saying come over and help us.
35 This Priest was a man of much belly, and also
waswiseacd powerful. He could make men be
lieve whatever bo pleased, so that his famo spread
over all the land. And it came to pass that his ad
vice was asked as a Lawgiver, and when men were
charged with crimes and defalcations cf thousands
of pu-ces of silver, they would'scnd for him, and
give him gold, and he would make a speech unto the
piople and "get tip a furor," and the people would
say, as with one voice, the man is innocent, and they
would lot him go.
35 Toevil doers he was as terrible as an army with
banners; and timid women in the village whero he
lived did saj they feared to meet him on the high
way mere than a wild boar of the forest. On the
Sabbath he preached the everlasting Gospel; neither
did ho ccaso doing good when the day ended, and
the night came on, but would go with the young men
of the City, and slone the habitations of baric ts, and
trample the wicked under his feet.
37 There was a certain Son of belial, living nigh
unto the homerf Samuel who had gained much
m jney by taking horses that belonged to other men,
and he hated Samuel, and he swure he would be
revenged upon him, even if he had to destroy his
life. And n hen it was told unto him that money
would be given to those who would persuade the
people not to cast their lots Icr Samuel, be girded
up his loins, and got him up to Omaha, and bargain
ed with the Elders of the City, and they gave him
thirty pieces of silver, and bo went to the uttermost
parts of Nebraska, wbere the people knew him not,
and with smooth words he talked slander, and he
was cheertdand applauded by Old buck's Tribe, but
the Republic -ns would not harken to his voice.
33 At Omaha every man was u.gcd to go for Ex-
ferience, on sectional grounds; l ut south of the
'latte, all the agents of Omaha strjve to make the
people believe that local inuttors had nothing to do
in the election.
39 And it came to pass that in Brownville, there
were divers who wero deceived by the crafty cun
ning cf the men of Omaha, and of the servants of
Old buck. And they closed their ears lest they
should hear, and shut their eyes, lest they should
40 There were also other.:, who, though not de
ceived yet were numbered for Experience. They
were influenced by various motives some, bceaus!
they were the servant and friends of James, the
Chief Ruler, and semo because they owned parcel.
of ground in Omaha, and some because they were
to be paid three hundred iiii-sJ i;f silver, and soma
because they hated nvu were jealous of Robert the
Printer, and som because they loved slavery with
all its evils better than freedom, for divers of them
had saiJ, on the corners of the streets and in the
Market Places, tbey "would vote to introduce iSh
rery here, to-day, if they could thereby bring it here,"
but others, more cantinu.-, hod answeied them say
ing, Hold your peace andbo-juiet, or ye will pro
duce confusien among us. Do not all our Orator"
tell the people every day, from every stump, that
not one man in all Nebraska wants slavery here?
41 And some of the tribe, whi were the mo.-t
Tiolent said. If there is not as many on our side as
there is on the side of Samuel, wo can make more
noise than they can, wo can appear on thecorners of
the street while the Mud Sills are laboring, and
passers by will think we exist in great number.
42 Arid we will make many of tho candidates who
are not of the Dera rntic Tribe o."t with us to get
our votes, fur they are afraid of us, but they know
the Republicans are more moierat--, and wg can get
their votes without our being reekond amongst them
43 Now David the M rehant, and David tho He
brew, and Eli iho Scrib. and Siym iur th jr'n
ter, and John, and Gerdon the Mney lender, and
Wjilter, and Thompson's Colt, and Daniel, sur-named
the Rash, an l (Huts and divers others were constant
ly stirring up the people.
41 Their principal month-piece was Daniel, who
was a very clever little man ready of speech, and
.-killed in the uso of those weapons kown by the
names of irony and sarcasm, but he was yowig and
45 His memory, also, was poor. He soon forgot
that Samuel had been opposed to annexing South
Platte to Kan?s, though all other men remember
ed it. H3 also forgot that all talk about "the glori
ous o'd Democratic Pat ty, of the dajs of Polk, was
in his opinion, contemptablc deaK goguisin." But
in his speeches for the man whoso sur-name was
Experience, he did glorify and magnify the old par
ty, and tho roan Polk.

Corn and Cob Crusher, and
Three valuable machines in one! Tbis is anew in

the public, the (arming portion in particular; Combin
ation has beei: pronounced by those who have the Mill
in use to one ol the best ever male, and the great val

fact is considered that eich machine mikes a necessity
for the other. Thus: a Mil! nukes a necessl.y (or a

Boiiiij a.ljpted to the use of the firmer, by horse
power, as a farm implement itsca:ccly has aaequal in
It is also adapted to steam and water or wind power.
It is capable of grinding from five to ten bushels per
hour, requiring from two to three horse power, accord
ing to the quantity and quality or the work done.
It grinds sufficiently fine for family use, making a su
perior article of il-al, leaving it round and lively.
which is indispensable for lijrbt bread or puddings.
Everyone will be astonished at the difference in this
respect in favor of the meal male in this Mill compar
ed with that made in any stone mill. Tbey have only
to make tbe trial to be convinced.
It will shell fifty to sixty bushels per hour, and will
grind and shel 1 at the same time.
It will crush fifteen to twenty bushels of corn and
cob per hour, aud it will crus'u and grind at the same
It is light and portable, weighing thrc hundred pounds
and occupying a space of. lcs than tv:o feet by three
The grinding surfaces are very dnratle. being made of
iron as hard as hardened cast steel, and when worn ont
can be replaced without the aid of a mechanic., at the
trifliug cost of one dollar and fifty cents, thus overcom
ing entirely ihe grer.t objection to iron mills. Particu
lar attention is caUed to this feature in tbe Mill, as
the difficulty of replacing grinding surfaces in Iron
mills when worn out is an objection t them that has al
ways been urged with great farce, and has had the effect
:o prevent thousands from purchasing, who otherwise
would bp glal to do so. That objection is entirely done
awa; with this mill.
Miller will do well to examine this Mill, there be
ing no doubt that they will find it for their interest to
adopt it for a leed mill, as the grinding surraccs are re
placed at a much less cost than is required to keep a
Stone Mill in order, to say nothing ot the great saviog
i:i powtr and cost of Mill.
An examination of this mill is earnestly solicited, as
it must be seen in operatiou to be (ally understood and
Cards of direction are attached to eich mill, which
will enable any one to set up and operate them wlihout
State and county rights for sale on reasonable terms.
