Tlie Volunteers on the way and at
. ... Omalia.
Thursday night last the Nemaha coun
ty Volunteers took passage on the steam
er Omaha for the point of rendezvous at
Omaha city. Theywero scorte'd to the
boat 3 y Capt. Hewetl's Home Guards,
and hundreds others of our citizens. As
the boat shoved off the brave boys were
given nine loud and lonj cheers. At
Peru in this county we were joined by a
portico of the company, residents at that
point. At Nebraska city Capt. Black
ttt's and Capt. Botdsto-i's companies of
infantry, and Capt Cornell's flying artillery
came aboard also, on their way to Omaha,
This acquisition completed a jammed steam
boat load of as jolly, wholesouled and
brave sett of men as ever handled a sword
or shouldered a musket. Of course that
44 good time coming" arrived and stayed
w ith the boys on their way to Omaha. Not
aa unpleasant occurrence took place dur
ing the whole trip. Arriving at Omaha
about 10 o'clock Friday night the new
recruits were met at the landing by com
panies A. and B., already mustered into
service, and by them escorted to the
Herndon House where they were com
fortably quartered in ihe spacious dining
room of that Hotel.
The next morning the Nemaha Com
pany was sworn in by Capt. Mtrbill of
the United States Army, sent there for
the purpose of mustering the Nebraska
Regiment into service. Our company
being the third received into the ser
vice, is numbered, or ranked company C.
The evening of the same day Captain
Blacker's company was mustered in and
stands as company D. Capt. Boydston's
company noi being full was net mustered
in when we left Tuesday morning.
The universal verdict was that Capt.
Thompson's company was decidely the
finest looking one on the ground. We
need not say here where they are all
well and personally known, that when
the lime for action comes they will fully
sustaiu the henor and credit of the coun
ty from which they hail.
We left the boys comfortably quartered
and ia the best of spirits, " eager fcr the
acter, firm as a rock, and brave as a lien.

Tne Rebels and. the Western
The rebels seem determined that at
least no effort shall te spared to carry
out ihe threats made some months ago,
that they could and would control and
have in their armies all the Western In
dians, from Arkansas to the Yellow Stone.
Hon. S. A. Chambers, Farmer for the
Otoes and Missouries, was here this
week and informs us thai the traitors are
yet at work endeavoring to create a dis
loyal disposition amoug the Indians west
of us. The .Kaws, Sacs and Foxes,
Otoes and Missourias, and Pawnees have
been earnestly solicited by the Cherokees
to meet them in grand council immediate
ly. Delegations have gone from the
tribes above mentioned. As the Cherokees
are already enlisted with the rebels, it is
but reasonable to suppose, for various
other reasons, given by those well ac
quainted, that the conference is for the
purpose" "of enlisting in ihe rebel army,
the Indians west of us. .
The agents of -these tribes should keep
t a close watch upon strangers, white man
or Indian found prowling around the vil
liages, and if they cannot give a satisfac
tory account of themselves, swing them
up! The settlers too, should keep a
sharp lookout after the Indians, and the
first move they make, either against the
inhabitants, or evento leave, they must be
exterminated speedily. These are stirring
times, and child's play will not do. No

The North, he continued, has grown
ricA and powerful, and extended from ocean

fundamental grievance in his mind ; and
though a man of remarkably literal views
in general, he did cot pppear to have the
faintest suspicion thai slavery had any
thing to do with the decadence if the
South, or freedom with the gigantic
strides of the North. His was a repre

good brick house of worship, which through
the kindness of the Trustees and Pastor,
Rev. Mr. Bradford, I occupy during his
absence to the States.
I have preached every Sabbath since
my arrival. On the first Sabbath upon a
few hours notice, we had a good congre
gation in the City Hall, w hich has in
creased since, more than four fold. Last
night we had the largest congregation I
have ever seen in all the Far-west. It
was the most solemn and interesting meet
ing we have had. We have reasons 44 to
thank God and take courage." I mee
many old friends. The people are kind.
I have not received a number of the
44 Advertiser" for three weeks. Hope
you will send it regularlj'. I read it with
much interest. Good-bye.
Respectfully, A. S. B.
KelllOHS, Preaching at the Congre
gational Church next Sabbath at 10 1-2
o'clock, A. M.t by Rev. H. Bcrch.
I have on hand yet a few thousand
strong thrifty Sweet Potatoe Plants. This
will be the last opportunity to procure
them this season.
