Nebraska City Correspondence.
Nebraska City, March Sih, 1862.
Mr. Editor : The trooping wind thats
that ushered in the first days of the lu
nar son of Marb, and sends the rapid
snow flakes hurtling through the air, show
that our present mcnth of March has
been correctly named. He certainly
presents a rough and warlike appearance,
and should his blustering continue these
twenty days, we shall right sing
The winds of March are hamming,
Their parting song, their parting song;
And Summer skies are c lining,
And flays grow long, and days grow long."
Should the splendid victories of the
last month be followed up, and fresh lau
rels be added to the army of the Union,
as we confidently expect, during the next
thirty days, the God cf War, will have
established his claim of protection and
rights to rule the month. And now that
the great plan conceived alike in the spir
it of humanity, and in accordance with
the profoundest knowledge of military
skill, is beginning to unfold itself, we
may with assurance anticipate results that
will make glad the heart of every
true friend of the Union. We may ex
pect the next few weeks big with events,
Our recent brilliant triumphs were but
the beginning of the end indications of
the still more glorious results just in
reach. It was befitting end proper that
the great heart of a loyal and generous
people should celebrate these victories
with 'bonfires illuminations and every
appropriate demonstration of thanksgiv
ing and rejoicing."
Our city presented a brilliant appear
ance on the evening of the 22d in honor
of the birthday of Washington, and in
celebration of the splendid victory at Ft.
Donelson. Nearly every house in the
city was illuminated, and the streets and
places of public resort seemed to vie with
each other in the brilliancy of their trans
parencies. Hon. Wm. H. Taylor read
the farewell address of Washington, pre
faced by some most judicious and appro
priate remarks. Judge Holly delivered
the oration, doing full justice to the oc
You may have noticed in the JVncs a
few weeks since, an exceedingly silly,
and flatulent epistle, written by "our del
egate from his seat in the exterior De
partment at Washington," in which, with
his accustomed vanity, he affects to take
all the odium attached to the false en
try of the Saline lands of Nebraska.
There is no more doubt Morton was privy
to the fraud and collusion, than that he
committed a dastardly act of rascality
and meanness in his abortive attempt
to enter saline lands, through his hired
man, Bill Prey. But whether his ca
pacious shoulders are capable of receiv-
to this and the district land offices, to the
end that such tracts may be respected
accordingly, any location or sale inter
fering therewith to be reported by said
register and receiver for cancelation, and
should it be found that the three locations
for which patents have been delivered, or
either of them, are salines, and the pat
ents should not be surrendered upon a
formal demand for the same, steps be re
cercmendel on the law side of the gov
ernment to have said patents set aside
and annulled by scire facias."
Our merchants are making prepara
tions for a heavy trade with the opening
of navigation. Many of them have con
summated arrangements for a shipment
of large stocks of goods with the first
beats, and the indications are that there
will be a brisk and lively levee the com
ing season. -
The California fever rages here quite
violently, and threatens to take off some
of our oldest and best citizens. We wish
they might be induced to reflect on the
maxim that "a rolling stone gathers no
moss," and remain where they are.

Friend Furnas : The rain and soaked

among both men and horses. The cli

we have been accustomed to that we be
gin to feel like going through a regular

are beginning to realize the feeble hold
they have upon the masses, without
whom the chivalry can do nothing. The
fact- is now beginning to be realized,
That the laboriug classes, the "mudsills,"
constitute the real power of the country,
and that the traitor hold on them is too
feeble to enable them to cope with men
who realize the fact that the good insti
tutions, the happy homes with peace and
plenty, depend , upon their own right
arms. Men accustomed to work for
themselves, are best suited to Jighi for
themselves, and will be found lying in
the entrenchments or upon the field, rath
