MOWyi'ILLE, TDCRSPAT JAN. 2, ISM.
We are p Icr sc J to fee our Councilman
make a motion for the adjournment of
the Legislature on ihe 1st cf February. In
times like these, when money is $o much
needed by the General Government, and
I r tKa familioc rtf our Viraro .erdrliors in
the field, ujoue should he wasted by our
. Legislators in legislation to stop the in-
- crease of dogs, black-birds or crow?, as
.1. . . t . . i. . . i
that they cannot repeal, nda individuals
can legislate thetn cut of existence to
he best advantage with a shot gun.
We would suggest, that if possible, the
Legislature do adjourn as proposed, and
vote the amount thus saved to the fami
lies of our soldiers in the field. It iaay
not be possible to do this d:rec:Iy, ns the
approprintion is, we believe, for "Legis
lative Expenses,'-' and if net thus ex
' pended merely remnina to the credit cf
the Territory, but, no matter how arrived
at, the act would be tut one of justice,
nd would redound t the credit of. the
present members, besi.Ies encouraging
those who are most worthy of it: Our
brave diets. Try it !

Xr. Editor: A few Initiative mat
ters may interest your readers, and be
lieving you will give my scrilblicgs a
favorable reception, I proceed at once
to speak of the Legislature.
This honorable body has been in ses
sion nearly two weeks. The members
fcecm to be hard at wcrk, and not given
much to gas, or tujjcoir.b speeches. Sev
eral Li'ls of a general nature have origi
nated in the Council. The House e:ms
almost wholly occupied in gcr.ing up
local bills, relating toronds, mill-Jams,
etc. A pel measure of cne cf the mem
bers from Oioe counts is "a bill to dis
courage the growth of dogs," and, I sup
pose, it will be ably discussed at an
early day. Since the notice was intro
duced, I have not Lard the barking or
howling of a single dog in this city, and
ihe father of the till is delighted with
the anticipation of ctir-tailiog the pro
lific prjpagation cf the species. Truly,
the member is "dogmatical."
Kirkpatrick is Speaker of the House.
Th:t gentleman is from Cass county, and
is familiarly known to the cjd members
of the Legislature as "Kirk." He is
good on "Rules" but Las a weak pair of
lungs, or the Representative Hail is too
large for his voice. However, "Kirk"
makes a good efneer, and is respected by
all the members.
The Council is presided over by O. P.
Mason, of Otoe county. Do you know
Masoii? If ycti do you will agree with
me in saying he is hard to Leal in this,
or any other country a jovid, excentric,
whcle-soultd fel!oy,' full of fire ai-d tow,
a re&dy and llun debator and a lawyer
of much ability, combined .with lojg
and extensive practice. II makes a
prompt and correct officer. The Coun
cil, in my opinion, was fortunate -in se
curing his,valuable services.
3ov. A. Saundtrs cannot be excelled
in his decorous and affable manners to
all the members. He soon gaiis the
jrocd will of all with whom he comes in
contact. His acts are intimately associ
ated with the history of Nebraska, and
not a stain can be successfully stamped
upon his reputation as an efficient, cool
headed and practical Executive.
The Governor intimated in his recent
Annual Message, that it might be his
last message to the people of Nebraska.
I know not his grounds for the assertion,
but believe- it is not the wish of the peo
ple that he should be removed. The'
regret at such an event would be univer
sal. Secretary Paddock is found, like a
faiihful sentinel, always at his p;.st. He
occupies a poskiou in the affections of
our citizens, that cannot be easily filled
by any other person. His capability,
honesty and fidelity as an officer cannot
be questioned. He is beyond doubt the
"right man in the right'place."
1 propose givii.- ycu a then sketch of
the Governor, Secretary, members ot the
Council and of the JIo.use,.as near as I
can before the close of the Session.
.The Amendment lathe Revenue Law,
introduced by our Councilman passed the
Council yesterday, by a vote cf. eight to
four. The principal amendment makes
taxes due first Monday in December, nd
Delinquent first of June. The penalties
and interests now due on unpaid Taxes
are suspended, or do cot attach for 1S64-
The bill for the Pay of the Militia
has passed the' Council also, apd is now
before the House. It will become a law,
and the "bra-e Miikia boys" will soon
receive their greenbacks.
The Herd Law is being discussed still
rn the Council. Much feeling is shown
on both tides, although each member ad
mits the law ;o be au absolute necessity.
It will meet with violent opposition in
the House should it pass the Council.
Omaha, Jan. 22d, '65.
Mr. Editor: The Legislature adjourn
ed cn the 20ih inst., until to-umrrow, in
order to give some of the members a
chance to visit her families. A certain
amount of time must be wasted, anyhow,
it matters not at v.hnt season of the year
its sessions convene! nor does the groan
ing, bleeding condition of' the country,
financially, have any weight with the
Honorable Legislature of Nebraska!
The Statutes of Nebraska are net to
be cumbered any onger with Local Laws.
The Council gave the precedent a few
days ago, and it will be strictly" adhered
to this Session, at leasC This is a move
in the right direction. We have had
enough legislation for private interests.
Full aud ample provision has been made
Sot all cases by the. General Statute, and
under . its broad wing an asylum can be
found for Mill-dams, bridges, &c.
During the discussion on, the iferd
Law much was said about the Common
Law, whereupon a South-Piatte Council
man arose, with his hands ramed into
his breeches pockets; and with a trembl
ing voice, saitf : "Mr. Stone (meaning
Eiackstcne,) did not know anything about
the Herd Law; never was in Nebraska,
and besides hevernt no farmer." The
friends of the bill subsided, and a vote
was taken without consuming further !
lime in its discussion.
A large batch of Memorials, for and
against, a Herd Law are presented daily.
A memorial has been, oi will be, pre
SviiU'd, signed by a number of respecta
ble Pawnee Indians, again t the pa-sage"
of the -bill, "discouraging the growth
cf dogs." They state this is their sole
dependence for4food ;" in viewof which
fact, a law to increase the "crop" would
materially contribute to the comfort and
happiness of the tribe.'
I suggest the propriety cf referring
the matter to a vote, as this is eminently
a "domestic institution." A majority
might be eppesed to it. and politicians in
these latter days always repose on the
"oppersido" of every question.
Gov. Saunders has ere this applied, no
doubt, to. the Secretary of War for per
permission to raise a new regiment for
frontier service. If a combined, vigor
ous, and united effort be made in all sec
tions of the Territory it can be effected.
Our worthy Governor is fully conviuc
'ed of the magnitude of the Indian War
now at hand, and you may rest aslir.'d
his every nerve will be pointed in the
right direction. The necessities for im
mediate action do not call for argument ;
the "War-whocp" has been - heard and
must be met, and its death-chilling cry
on our borders forever hushed! Has
not the time yet arrived for the work of
extermination? Does not the blood of
the defenceless women and the weeping
"little cne" awaken a desire' to wipe
every "Red devil" from the face of the
earth ? i
Gen. Mitchell is now absent from these
Head Quarters, having left on the first
reception of news, for the region cf the
late Indian raids. .
Capt. Moer, Ass't Quartermaster, ha
gained, as he always does, the good will
and confidence of all with whom he comes
in. contact. He is social, energetic and
prompt, ar.d his knowledge of the intri
cacies of his position equal to any man in
Capt. John A. (Vilcox is still filling

signation. The Government cannot se
cure a more faiihful and efficient officer
to discharge the arduous duties connect
ed with this department cf the service.

Washington, Jan. 17th. The follow

eral Point, N. C, dated the 16:h:
.General : I have the honor to report
that Fcrt Fisher was tarried by asauli
this afternoon and evenii g by General
Ames' division and the 2d brigade of the
1st division of the 24;h army corps, gal
lantly aided by a battalion of marines
and seamen from the navy.
The assault was proceeded by a heavy
bombardment from the fleet, and was
made at 3:20, p! r. ., when the irst brig
ade of Ames' division effected a lodg
ment upon the parapet, bui full posses
sion of the work was not obtained till 10
The behavior of both officers ar.d men
was most admirable. Ail the works south
cf Fort Fisher are now occupied by our
troops. We have not less ihan 1,200
prisoners, including Gen. Whiting and
Cel. Lnmb, the commandant of the fort.
I regret to say that our loss is severe,
especially in officers. I am no yet able
to form any estimate of the number of

Fort Fbher, Jan. 16. 2 a. in. After
a careful rtconnoisance on the 14th. it
was decided to risk an assault. tn Fort,
Fisher, Paint's division with Colonel
Abbott'sbrigade, tobld our line, already
strung across the veninsula, and facing
.Wilmington, against Hoke, while Ames'
division joulj asfault on the west end.
After three hours heavy navy firing
the assault was made at 3:30 p. m. Cur
tis' brigade led, and as" soon as it was on
the west ekd of the land front, it was
followed by Pennibacker's and he by
Bell's. After desperate fighting, gain
ing foot by foot, and severe loss, at five
p. m. we had possession cf about half
the land fronts.
Abbott's brigade was then taken from
our line facing Wilmington and put into
Fort Fisher, and on pushing it forward
at 10 p in., it took the west. of-the. work
with but li'tle resistence, the garrison
falling back to ths extreme of the pnin
sula, where they were followed and cap
" Among the wounded are the comman
ders of the three leading brigades, Gen.
Curtis being wounded not seriously, but
Colonels Pennibacker and Bdl dauber
ously. The land front was a formidable one,
the parapet in places foutteen feet high,
but the men went at it nobly, undei a
severe musketry fire. The marines and
sailors went gallantly, but the musketry
fire from the ea&t end of the land front
was so severe they did not succeed in en
tering the work. - '
The navy fire oa the-works, judging
from tjjie holes, must have been terrific.
Many cf the guns were injured. How
many there were on the Point I cannot
say, perhaps thirty or forty.
