The recent and repeated interruptions
. cf the telegraph line ty cutting the wire
t Nebraska City, Us become almost an
intolerable grievance. We Lad cot here
tofore been willing to believe that any
respectable number of the letter portion
cf. the citizens -of that place would pre-
tend to sustain ruch outrages upon tie
community at large. Recant develop
ments; however, compel us, to suspect at
least, that if the perpetrator . arc.xct
. cpenly sustained, their conduct i3 winked
at. We are not posted as to the detailed
difficulties existing between our neigh
bors of Nebraska City and the Telegraph
Company, which has resulted in that
' .place baring no office, 'as yet. ,,-This
' we do know, however, that there, has
been a-degree of .unpardonable selfish -
nes3 manifested by 'our sister city from
the commencement of the telegraph en
terprise until the present. The 'reason
her people assign for not paying up their
mubseripiion a failure to do which caused
the company to refuse them' an office
i, . iht the line was extended to
Omaha!.. Now, when . the line is com.
pletedr and they without an office; and
'after some of their: citizens have "divers
and sundry times" cuV'down the wire,
and thrown it into the river; thereby
causing the -company much aggravation
and expense,, and feriously interrupting
the. business of the community in gener
al, we understand t' r-y proper to capit
ulate with the Telegraph Company,; and
want to know how much they will be re
quired to .subscribe in order to secure an
office, and dispense with (he one at Brown-
rilk t .We have only this to say to our
neighbors. We are not cf these to"throw
stones in (heir way," cr anybody else's ;
are' not cf those who appear to think that
' to pull down rivals and build upon their
ruins is essential to suocess; that such a
course in this wide world cf ours, is even
sound policy or wisdom. We of Brown
villo .would be pleased to see an office
established at Nebraska City, and all oth
er points where their people dpsire it -'the
mere tho mcrier hepe it will be
dona ; believe it will, when the amounts
already) subscribed -are . paid up. . But,
in regard to that other little' matter,' viz :
drying up ine cy.ee at Brownvule, 'permit
us to say with great respect,, and with a
full know ledge cf the august personage
we addrcs?, "it. isn't ii Vie Pins V1 Our
businessmen, assisted by the citizens gen
erally, promptly subscribed ths amount
required by the company, to secure an
office, and on fast call, paid up every
dollar: and the office here pays a hand
We repeat kindly, aril r suggest re
spectfully to our neigbboss, that hi en
deavoring to prevent the extension of the
the line to Omaha, and since tc suspend
the office at Brownvillc, they have exhib
ited a huge amount cf selfishness; and
that. their correct policy now is to cease
cutting. the wires; pay up their subscrip
"ions; secure an office of their own be
fore "attempting to dryvp others ; go along
in company with other points; and bear
in mind that there is such a thing as be
ing "Toouf," and hereafter show more

Next Tuesday the Presidential elec
tion takes place in the States. With our
telegraph facilities we will be able to give
our readers the result in the next issue of
the Advertiser. We believe, however,
that it is pretty generally conceded that
one Lincoln I Ioaest Abfc" of Spring
field Illinois is Ae can whom the people
of ihes'e United States intend to place in
the Executive Chair of the nation. In
this event Yancy, Wisfalb, and other
Breckinridge bolters propose to 'tbust the
Union. We reckon, however, they will
"rosone "on aerount' cf the inclemency

The County Fair. '
As the Nemaha. County Agricultura
Fair did not: take - place as advertised;
and a3 .some who do not understand why
it' did not, are disposed to censure us, we
make this explanation. ' .
The Board of Managers, whose duty
it was to prepare, arrange and control the
fair, thought politics was absorbing the
entire attention of the people, and copse-
i que nil y that the Fair could not be made
a success; therefore let-it go by default
We differ with the Beard. We .-think a
Fair far surpassing that of last year could
have been held, even in the midst of our
little political campaign. The farmers-,
those who were not candidates were not
half so much taken: up with politics as
some people thought they were. - They
think more of their farms, and produc
tions, than all the politics we have in Ne
braska, The better plan, even had the
supposition proved true, would have been
for the Board to have met, and postpon
ed the Fair until the next week after the
election. We are but the Secretary of
the Society, and as such, -did, our duty.
We called a meeting of the board ten days
before the election" that some ' definite
arrangement might be made ; but not a
sir. jle member attended. ,, ;
. A failure in such things always begets
a want cf confidence thereafter; and we
venture the assertion, that the entire fail
ure this season' will result in there not
being as good a Fair as that of last year
for several years to come. .
We therefore regret the failure this

Dear Sia :
In consequence of the very great pop
ularity of the Havana Plan, of drawing
Lotteries, and at the request of many of
our correspondents, we have selected one
of those magrngcent schemes for your ap
proval, to be drawn in this city on the
24th of November, and of which we en
close the State Official Scheme. Being
desirous to . render these Lotteries still
more popular, we beg to effer you the
refusal of a package of tickets in the en
closed Lottery for the small sum of twen
ty dollars. The advantage of packages
in these Lotteries is that anyone can draw
ten of the highest prises, amounting to
$75,000, which is not the case in any
other Lottery now drawing. And as
these are drawn by sworn Commissioners
appointed by the Governor of the State,
you are sure of fair, and honorable treat
ment, and of all prizes being cashed at
In event of the package we select not
dra-ving you a prize of SI 000 (although
you are entitled to all over that amount)
we bind ourselves to send you another
package in one of our extra lotteries for
nothing. ' All we desire of you is, that
when you receive the money for your
prize, you will usa your exertions for our
benefit. The State official drawing will
be sent oa the same day the result is made
known, at well as a draft for any amount
you may draw, payable to your order oa
you nearest tank.
Send the $20 either by bank note, cer
tified check, or draft, when the package
will be forwarded. Respectfully,

statu quo. -
The following from the. Omaha Repub
lican will give an idea of the obstacle
preventing a prompt decision on the part
of the Board :.
'"One " of "the most audacious pieces of
villainy "ever attempted in any country,
has just come to liht in the notorious L'
Eau qui Court county. It was no 1-ss than
the deliberate forgery of one hundred and
twenty-two majority for .Morton, in the
"Northern precinct," by the notorious
"TUFFTS." This pretended "Northern
precinct" is about twenty-five or thirty
miles above L'Eau qui Court county, and J
does not contain more man mre men.
James W. Virtue, Esq., a Democratic
census marsball, informs 115 that while ta
king.thc census, during the latter part of
July, he visited that region and did not
find more than three men in this pretend
ed "Northern precinct." Thos. J.-Bi-ley,
a Democratic Constable of this city,
visited Furt Randall during tho last sum
mer on official bu;iness, and he confims
the statements of the census Marshall !
So bold and reckless has this Mr. Tufft's
become, that he had the impudence to ap
pear, in person, before the County clerk,
of L' Eau qui Court county, and insisted
that he should canvas's the forgery and
return it to the Governor. .. But that of
ficer, with one of the free-holders, selec
ted by him, rejected it. The other free
holder a Democrat, and a tool of Mor
ton and Tuffts, protested against its re
jection. In a letter giving en account of
this infamous transaction, the County
clerk of L'Eau qui. Court, says. "We
naturally felt outraged at the audacity in
returninsr or the attempt to saddle this
i county with another fraud in the shape of
122 votes for J. Sterling Morton."
Notwithstanding all this, J. Sterling
Morton, through the columns of. the Oma
ha Nebraskian, claims his election ; and
as though he owned tha Governor, the
chief Justice and the District Attorney,
aunounces . that ' vote of 122 will yet be
be counted by them and thai they will go
behind the return of the County CUrk,
and give hirn the certificate ? Could im
pudence go farther? We confidently be
lieve he mistakes his man this time.
But "we shall see what we shall see.
EggSince the above was in type, and
after our forms were on the Press, we
learn that the Board of Canvassers, cotn
ted the infamous Ft. Randall, vote, and
awarded Morton the, certificate by a r.ia
ioritv of 14 votes. A more hih handed
and unblushing villiany has never been in
flicted u; on any people. Our particular
respects to this matter next week.
