Our grand-fathers could raise corn,
tell it at from 6 1-4 to 15 cents per bushel,
and accumulate money ! Why cannot
we do the same? The great reason is, our
wants are loo numerous. Had the im
mortal Pope lived in this eountry, in the
middle of the 19ih century, be would
never have written the firit of the lines
quoted at the head of this article. Our
wants are unlimited. Another reason
for the present bard times among farm
ers in Nebraska is, that we are too much
dependant on the East. We gef all our
clothing, our groceries, our household
ind kitchen furniture.our agricultural
and mechanical implements in short, al
most everything we consume from the
Stales. That community is the most pros
perous which experts the most and im
ports the leat, from ether parts of the
country. Good -substantial woolen and
linnen clothing; furniture; wagons, plows,
and other agricultural implements; hats,
hc9. socks, brooms, matrasses ; whis
ky, and a thousand other little wants,
could be made in Nebraska nearly cr quite
as cheap as any where else. When the
Territory is a little older they will be.
But our citizens should now give the
preference to articles manufactured at
heme, whenever they can be obtained,
ted thereby keep the money in the Ter
ritory. Still another rcasen why we cannot af
ford to sell produce as cheap as it was
scld fifty years ago, is because the pri
ces, of different articles do net corres
pond they have not yet become fully
adapted to the times. In some parts of
Europe laborers receive about 15 cents
per day in China about 5 cents. And
yet they seldom suffer for the necessities
life ; because prices are adapted to labor.
Provisions now being cheap, those
who are our of debt, and who have any
employment need not complain of hard
times. Labor now is cheap, Mechanics
wages, are cheap, and lumber is cheap.
New is an excellent time to make in
provements in fences, buildings, &c, in
both town and on farms. We notice that
cur farmtrs have done more towards
fencing,' during the past two months than
they have before during an equal period
cf time for several years. Fencing lum
ber, which has heretofore been a drug,
is row taken from the mills as fast as it is
eawn. So great is the demand for fenc
ing, that the price has advanced 25 cents
cn the hundred.
Farmer. Judge, I came to ask your
legal opinion in a certain case : My bull
has gored one of your oxen. What is
Judge. It is a clear case sir. You
must pay me another ox.
Farmer. But, Judge, I made a slight
mistake in stating the case your bull has
killed one cf my oxen ?
Judge. Oh! Ah! Well, that alters
the case. I will inquire into me matter.
. Lro. Jonathaniu 1812. Judge Bull,
your ecrvants have stopped my ships,
searched them, violently taken from them
hundreds of your subjects, and also divers
of mine. What is the law in the case ?
John Bull. The law is Tery clear. I
bare a perfect right to take tny subjects
wherever I find them.
Brother' Jonathan differs in opinion
from John Bull. They have a law suit,
but the case is withdrawn, leaving the
matter in statu, quo. John bull continues,
evry few years, to take his subjects from

''John Dull, (in a rage.) "Took your
tubjects from my ship." That's a differ
ent matter from anything that has before
eceurred. You have acted very unfriend
ly, ir ! You are a blachguard! You
are a pirate! You are an insolent cow-trd!
Quite a. number of the counties of Ne
iraeka were named in honor of distin
guished Democrats, many of whom are
now among the traitors to our Govern
ment. The Legislature are determined
iiot-to let their names longer disgrace
cur-Territory. Last week they changed
the rarue of -Green" County to 'Sew

Cotton World will doubtless create a
largely increased demand fcr Wrool.
Taking into ccnsideratlonthe durability
of Wool it is cheeper , than Cotton, and
should be used exclusively in all coarse
and substantial dothing. It could take
the place of three-fourths of .the Cotton

Southern planters will raise very little
Cotton the coming seascn ; and hence
should the war come to a speedy termin
ation, there would still be a great demand
The following Act has passed both
branches of the Legislature, and received
the approval of the Governor:
To Encourage Wool Growing in Ne
braska. Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the Council
and House of Representatives . of the
Territory of Nebraska : That all Sheep
not to exceed five hundred in number are
hereby exempt from forced sale on exe
cution, and from taxation.
Sec. 2. All acts and parts of acts in
consistent with this act are hereby re
pealed. Sec 3. This act to be in force and
from and after its passage.
Passed Dec. 23, 1861.
Some will argue, "if wool Growing
will not pay without Legislative protec
tion, it will not with, and does not de
serve such protection." It will pay with
out protection ; but the stimulus cf a lit
tle Legislation will tend to' start it into
immediate operation in this Territory.
It will attract the attention of Eastern
Sheep raisers to the advantages in Ne
braska for their business, over most or all
of the States.
The members of the Legislature, from
North of the Platte, to a man, so far as
we have learned, oppose a change in the
present apportionment. They all ac
knowledge that South Tlatte has a much
larger population than North Platte, yet
they insits on the present unfair appor
tionment on the pretext that there is no
means of ascertaining the population of
the various counties. They are not wil
ling to take the vote as a criterion to
judge by,: but must wait until next year
when the census returns for 1860 will be
published. By that time the population
will have so materially changed from
what it was when the Census was taken,
that citizens of Omaha will then be as
much opposed to taking it as a basis as
any body else, and will still be opposed
to making any change.
For a week past we have received al
most nothing by our Eastern and South
ern mails. We publish the latest tele
graphic news received in the Omaha pa
The Chicago Tribune has information
from an unquestionable source, that five
thousand acres of Illinois land will be
planted with cotton the coming year.

favors in the way of documents.
Omaha, N. T., Dec 28.
Your "servants," the members of the
Legislature cf the Territory cf Nebras
ka, adjourned from the 23d to the 28th,
in order to take Christmas in the 'bosom
of their constituents, against which none
but the selfish can urge an objection.
'Council and House," in the language
of the Journals, met "pursuant to adjourn
ment," on the . 26th. Council spending
a few minutes in session, concluded that
Christmas was not over, and on motion,
adjourned until Monday the 30th. Sun
dry motions to the same effect were made
in the House without success, the mem
bers wisely determined to attend to busi
ness before pleasure. Some of our ser
vants act" as if they thought only of squan
dering valuable time, and cf their three
dollars a day A faithful man, whatever
mav be his calling or position, never de
serts his post. If the Government would
refuse to pay members while absent cn
private business, methinks there would
be fewer absentees. It seema cardinal
ly wrong, especially when the Gov
ernment is putting forth every nerve to
obtain funds to sustain the soldiers on the
tented-field," for these servants of the
people to demand and receive "compen
sation for services they have not render
dered. Wonder if any of them would
support a joint resolution and. memorial
asking Congress to refuse to pay absent
ees? In consequence of the "hollidays,"
legislative items are meagre. The bill
for an act to incourage the growth of
grapes, has been laid on the table in the
table in the Council, and will not be ta
ken up. A bill for a ferry charter at
Peru, is cow before the Governor, to
gether with a large batch of bills of a
local nature, introduced mostly by the
members from the northern section cf the
Nemaha county has not asked for lo
cal legislation this session, with two ex
ceptions only, the Peru Ferry Charter
and a bill for & Territorial road introduc

ties not been sufficiently depleted by this
useless and expensive legislation ? We
have en 'excellent general law under
which all such roads can be obtained if
desired by the people. There are nu
merous objections to filling up our stat
utes with such acts, but I will pass them
by for the present.
CHBISTtfAS AT THE CAPITAI,,
Had nounusual features. The young
and gay let themselves loose on general
principles; the day passed off; the sun
rising in the East, and going down in the
west, a sight long to be fondly remem
bered by the youngest of the present
Omahas. "Time," as the poet has it,
"wags along." Many who hare participa
ted in the festivities of this Christmas,
will not witness the return of another !
A voice is falling silently upon the head
of millions, before another year thou shall
die!" Disease and "grim-visage war"
will hush in death many a glad and hap
py voice that hailed the advent of these
Christmas scenes, before the passing
away of 1862. Solemn thought!
- RETCBJf OF ABSENTEES.
. Gents, who thought they could be of
more service at home, than by overseeing
the motions of the Legislature, are dai
ly answering to their names at' the call
of the roll. It is to be hoped that they
will "walk into things" now. and create
wholesome and needful laws. Rest to
the body generally gives vigor to the
mind, and you may look for the evidence
of this truth before many days.
KOTJCE OF BILLS Or DIVOBCE.
"As it was in the beginning, so it is
now, and ever will be,,' the sexes won't
always "jibe" together; the knot won't
hold, the dream is too good to last ; the
charm fleeth as a shadow, and what once
was sweeter "than "sorgum" becomes
insipid, sour and repulsive. Ah, what
romantic, but sad incidents are wrapped
in the respective periods of courtship,
marriage and separation ! but I forbear
to lift the veil.
In one cf the applications for a disso
lution of the marriage relation, among
other no less serious complaints was set
forth that the lady was an intolerable
"scold," 8nd exceedingly abusive. Now,
this must be a slander ! For who ever
heard of another such a case ? A lady
might be abusive, but the scolding part
seems a little incomputable with the na
ture of the sex. And should such an
unnatural habit be resorted to, my con
elusion would be there is a cause. A
divorce, ergo, should not be granted. It
may be however, the House will view the
case diffently. Hope none of them wil
be actuated by interested motives, for
judging from appearance, they are hap
py in their matrimonial affairs.
For many days past the wind has been
on a "high horse," puffing a perfec
"streak" over tne mils, down tne streets
and against the houses ; promenading
with "hoops" and "crinoline" became
delicate, hazardous, and elevating. Yet
no inclemency of the weather banishes
them entirely from the side-walks. The
courage of females is astonishing. "Nev
er mind the weather, so the wind don'
blow," applies to the "men folks "
ALARM OF FIRE.
About half past five o'clock, on the
evening of the 27th, while a storm was
raging fearfully, the startling cry of fire
echoed through the balls of the "Hern
don," whereupon a "right smart chance'
of confusion was the result. It was soon
ascertained that only one of the
chimneys was on fire. The confusion
and excitement among the inmates of tbe
magnificent edifice subsided, and nothing
save the mournful, melancholy sound of
of the terrific storm ruffled the thoughts
of the most timid.
Under the circumstances no human
power could have saved the building if it
had been on fire. It would have been in
ruins in a few minutes. This ought to
be a valuable warning to all, in anywise,
interested. It is rood policy "m times
of peace, to prepare for war," and so it
should be in absence of fire to make all
possible preparations to control and sub
due its destroying flames.
For the information cf all interested I
will hero remark that the winter at Oma
ha, excepticg a "blow" occasionally, has
so far elicited the admiratioaof all lovers
of cloudless skies, balmy and refreshing
air, even, I am credibly informed, the
delegate to' the "Third House," from
Beaufort, is eloquent in his praises of the
The river is still partly open here;
cannot be crossed by teams, and unless
the "cold" becomes more severe it will
remain statue quo until the1 return of

two of snow, the sign of which can
scarcely be seen ; in consequence of this
sleighing has been literally "run into the

In few words, the climate of Nebraska
has no superior, and but few equals, which
must, ere long, attract the tide of im
migration from all parts of the world,
and mate us in a few years one of the
most populous and wealthy people in the
Union. We have, not only the climate,
but a soil of unsurpassed fertility ; with
these who can doubt the unapproachable
destiny of Nebraska ? Her motto is up-
The War for the Union.

The Philadelphia Inquirer of this
morning has a special dispatch from Bal-
1 1 f a
timore, stating tnat news naa been re
ceived from Richmond to the effect that
Fort Pickens had opened fire on Fort
McRae three times since tbe 22d ult.,
but with what effect is not known. On
a united rally for the old cause of their
.Resolved That a chaiiman, two secre
taries, and a committee of twenty-one
members, each having, been duly and
separately proposed and seconded, be
chosen by a majority cf voices cf this
meeting to take intc consideration the
advisability of an organisation in the
present state of affairs at home and a
btoad. The Liverpool Post says the whole
purpose cf the meetiug was to express,
in every variety of place, sympathy with
America. It is quite natural that this
should be the tendency cf the Irish, even
apart from their hatred of England, for
scarcely any Irish family is unrepresen
ted in the United States. The meeting,
however, was useless and heedles.
The Liverpool Mercury says that the
only item of importanca in the latest
news from the United States is a brief
abstract of the address cf President Davis
to the Confederate Congress. The ad
dress, it ads, is hopeful and determined
in tone, and shows that a war so stupidly
persevered in by the North connot possi
bly effect the subjugation of the South.
It is stated that evidence will be laid
before the European Government that
the blockade of the Southern ports is in
effectual, and consequently illegal.
The London Times, in a city article,
says it must be kept in view, that the de
signs of Mr. Seward are reported for
some time to have been the cause of disa

That the decision of the present question
therefore, is not entirely in the hands of
Later advices are waited for with great
anxiety, as it seems that the course of
circumstances may be much modified by
anything that may take place between the
opposing armies in the interval from now
to the arrival of the British demands.
Paris papers assert that the dispatches
sent by the British Government to Lord
Lyons, although couched in moderate
language, are nevertheless inflexible in
their conclusion, which is the restitution
of the commissioners. If this is refused,
Lord Lyon is to leave Washington, with
all the members of the legation
party, and was not taken until seme time
after the rest of the rebeJ force had sur-r
rendered, and in. consequence of the
darkness of the night he was tot recog
nized until the next day.
It seems that CcL Magoffin having vis
ited his home and arranged his affairs,
sent a messenger recalling his parole, but
instead of surrendering himself as officers
generally do, he left, and before his mes
senger reached Sedalia, was in the rebel
army, and when the fight came on, feel
ing that he deserved, and would probably
receive different treatment from those
who had not forfeited all right to be trea
ted as prisoners of war, fonght desperate
ly, but unavaiiingly. Gen. Pope refused
to accept his parole and ordered hitn to be
placed in confinement until Gen. Halleck
decided what disposition to make of him.
He is one of the most desperate and un
scrupulous of the marauders in this sec
tion, and it is to be hoped that he will
receive the punishment his crimes and
forfeiture of his parole deserve.
