M Mi I
I Saw Iler but, a moment.
There is a poet in St. Joseph who very evident
ly d "es not like the tiltirg loop skirts about which
ao much is being tali now j-days. Hear him:
I saw her but, a moment,
'Twas in a "tilting skirt
Dow prcti'.y she sailed along,
The charming little flirt!
I saw her but, a moment
Ah ! ,twas a pretty sight
To see her tread the crowded street
With footsteps free ard light.
I saw her but, a moment,
Yet I swore by the "Old Harry,"
Tho' a pretty thing to look at,
She would never do to narry I
Tho' I saw her but, a coment,
Yet I knew she was a flirt
By the jaunty airs she put oa
As she swung her tilting skirt.
JUST IN TIME.
A TALE OF EARLY ILLINOIS
"Good evening, Mell. Well, how
do you do ?"
"Tolerable, Jake ; how is your molb..
She's well how's yonrn V1
"Not very well, I'm sorry to ray ; for
now, you see. I have to tote all the wa
ter, wash all the dishes, and pail the
cow. Oh! it's too much for me; I won't
stand it much longer ; I'll have a home
of my own, and then I'll do as I please.
Jake, why don't you get married 1"
"Shaw! I don't know, Mell; reckon
it'sbecauael can't get no one to splice
"You've knowed better than that, ever
since you've been ccmiu' to see me. I
wish I had as good a chance as you've
Though Jake was a backwoodsman.
and they had the reputation of withstan
ding everything, this last remark from
lis fair companion brought a deap color
o his swarthy cheek.
"Law! what makes you turn so red?"'
continued Mell, pointing her finger at
him, and laughing bewitchingly.
This made Jake only turn redder and
redder. He seemed to be in the last
stage of embarrassment; he tried to
stammer out something, but could pro
duce no sound that resembled a word of
the English Unguege. At last after he
had cooled off a little, and got his tongue
and lips in wokmg order once more, he
"Mell I swon, you're too bad to ac-
puse me of turnin' red ! I'm no redder'n
you. Law ! did I tell you what a great
wolf-hunt I had yesterday?"
No," she replied, with a sorrowful
ook, which one might imagine was caus-
eJ by untimely change of the subject
No doubt she thought she was fetching
him to a point ; and indeed it was time,
or he had been courting her for two
years, and as yet had not got ready, been
willing, or found courage enough to pro
pose. Mell was willing, perhaps too
willing, and her patience was becoming
very much werried. She had tried to
pitas him in every way she could, but it
made no diflereDee; and now, as a last
resort, she had determined to bring him
to the point at all hazards. After listen
ing to 9. wonderful day's adventures
among the wolves, to relate which took
Jake about two hours, and agreeing that
he had performed feats worthy of an In-
d an, she began :
Jake, you've been coming to see me
for a long time."
"Yes' said he.
"We know one another well enough,''
."Yes !" he ejclaimed, somewhat sur
prised. -Then, any question you want to ax
me, I'll answer correctly. "
"But I have nothing to ax,", raid Jake.
"What! been com in' to see me two
years, and don't want to ai me apyhicg
?Not as I know on."
!' Well, then, you needn't come again !"
said she, angrily. "I'll marry Bill Ba
ker, if he ever comes to see rne again.
I sacked him for you, but it' is the last
Jake flew iroto a passion, on hearing
Bill Baker's name mentioned jumped
pp, kicked the stool over, and broke home
like a racer.
Bill Baker soon heard the news, start
ed over to his sisters to put on bis buck
skin suit, and "lumbered for the neck of
woods" where Mell lived. He found
her as bright as ever put in hi3 claim,
Tf a f
and was directed to "ax dad and mam."
For some cause or "other, the old folks
were not willing ; but Mell and Bill were,
so they fixed upon a plan to marry, any
how. Bill went secretly to Mr. Isaac,
got a license, and that night made off for
Squire W 's. On their road to hap-
pin?8, Jhovvsror, who should they meet
but Jake ? He had got a hint cf what
was going on, and he met them on pur
pose, knowing precisely how the case lay.
"Mell," said he, "I've fooled you, that
is a fact, but I'm sorry for it ; but if you
like me belter than Bill here, ji?t say so,
and I'll be darned if I don't give him a
ihunderiu' thrashin', and take his license,
and the Squire shall marry us with them,
The old love was too strong for the
new; and Mell lolde Jake to "pitch in
They both pitched in, and such a fight
as it was ! The brush broke, the dirt flew,
the fists sounded, and skulls cracked in
such a wav that had one teen within
fifty yards, he would have taken it for a
herd of buffaloes on a regular stampede.
After fighting all over the hazel patch
for about an hour, Bill cried enough.
"Give me the license, then," said Jake.
"No; darned if I do!" was tbe reply;
and at it thev went ariain. This time
they fought so long, that Mell got uneasy
lest daylight should come before they
got to the Squire's, which she knew
would put an end to her marrying that
day, as the Spuire would want to be out
with his gun. However, after fighting
alonar the road near half a mile, Bill
again cried enough,
"Give me the license !" shoutsd Jake.
"No, unless you pay the dollar and
bit they cost me.
"Nary time," said Jake, beginning to
pitch into him again.
Feeling rather tired of such sport,
Bill handed out the license. Jake thrust
them in his shot-pouch, and taking Mell
by the arm, said, "Now, come on, old
gal now for the Squire's."
They arrived at his Honor's about 8
o'clock in the morning, and Jake bawled
out, " Hellow !"
"Hellow yourself," said the Squire ;
"who's there ?"
A couple what whants to marry," said
"Come in," said the man of the people
who soon got all things ready for the
'.'What's yonr name?" he asked.
Jake told him both their names, and
handed him the license.
"But these won't do," said the Squire,
after spelling at them some time; "they
hain't got your name on 'em ain't ac
cord in' to law."
"I dunno much about your law do
in's," said Jake ; "but one thing I do
know 1 had to thrash a feller like bla
zes, to git them 'ar license ; and now ef
ycu don't put us through with 'em I'll
thrash you a darned sight wuss !"
This was enough for the Squire, and,
without any more ado, he pronounced
them man and wife, and sent them home,
the happies pair in the State of Illinois.
A numerous old man fell in with an
igoraut ajid rather impertinent young
minister, who proceeded to inform the
old gentleman, in very positive terms,
that he could never reach heaven unless
he was born again, and added : "I have
experienced that change and now feel no
anxiety." "Atd you have been born
again ?" said his companion, musingly,
"Yes, I tru I have." "Well,M said the
old gentleman, eying him attentively,
"I don't think it would hurt you to be
born again, young man."
A few years since, ladies were not so
particular in covering their shoulders
with high-necked dresses as at the pres
ent time. At that period, a gentleman
lost his heart to a lady who. led the fash
ion. He told his mother, like a sensible
man, and she gravely replied :
;My dear, you have not been ac
quainted with the lady above a fort
night ; let me recommend you to see
more of her."
"More cf her ".exclaimed the young
man. "Why, I've seen down to the fifth
rib on each side, already." No more
objections we made, and they were

The Herald on tbe Soldiers.
The Omaha Herald of the 20ih con
tains an article on the persecution of
democratic soldiers and officers, during
the late war by radical commanding of
ficers. The editor of the herald ought
to know all about these things ; ha fol
lowed the army in arlcansas for some
time, picking up little thi3g3 left (?) by
the soldiers, and very kindly taking care
of the citizens, cotton for them. He
seems to have great admiration for Gen.
steel. We never saw a rebel in Arkan
sas that did not. Gen. Hurlburt also
was in high esteem with them all, for as
we learned from a lady of Batesville,
for their goodness3 ia allowing them to
purchase things prohibited by War De
partment orders, to supply their friends
in the rebeljarmy with, and otherwise
aiding the rebellion. General Steel was
m high favor with all the cotton thieves
in Arkansas, and we find that at least
one of them has soul enough to feel grat
ful to him for the opportunities given
them. We admire Dr. Miller for his
fine redeeming features. We don't
blame him for praising Gen. Steel, he
ought to do so. He manifests great dis
like for Gen. Livingston, so did all the
rhel wft knew in Arkansas. He was
just as lenient these-as the army Regu
lations and. the circumstances would per
mit, and no more so. Rebels "couldi do
nothing with him,but he fought andcom
manded for his country, and subordinate
officers got themselves into scrapes when
ever they attempted to shield either a
rebel or cotton thief, consequently all
the rebels and Dr. Miller hate him, and
the latter lets no opportunity for misrep
resenting him pass unimproved. The
herald says it spits upon the stereotyped
charge of its editor's contempt for sol
diers, but that does not remeve it. It
still sticks faster than wax, and has
been sterotyped by the gantleman him
self, by every act since he edited a reb
elfsheej. in St. Joe, to the penning of
tbe article above mentioned, including
cotton speculation J"eb. City, Press.
The editorial correspondence of tha
Kansas Slate Journal dated Nebraska
City, June 6ih, contains the following:
Nebraska has a popuhtion of about
42.000. Its population in 1S60 was
20,000, showing a steady and very grat
ifying increase. The inhabitants, are in
dustrious, orderly and enterprising, com
posed almost exclusively of the agricult
ural classes. The reports in Agricul
tural Department at Washington shows
that the farmers of Nebraska for 1S65,
raised larger crops to the acre, and re
ceived a higher price per bushel for their
produce than an average of three-fourths
of the States in the Union. As a grain
producing region it is unsurpassed. Both
fall and spring wheat is grown herewith
success. Corn especially in the rich val
leys of L'eauquicourt, the Platte, the
Weeping Water, the Nemaha, the EIu3
and Salt Creek, yields abundantly, and
is always a sure crop. There has never
been a failure in crops from the first set
tlements in 185-1 to the present time.
A successful experience of twelve years
has fully demonstrated the capacities cf
this Territory for grain growing. There
is abundance of pasturage for stock and
upon the rich and excellent prairie grass
es ctock thrive finely, and the growing
of wool, and tha raising of cattle could
but be a very remunerative business
were it not for the considerably greater
time required to feed in the course of
the year than is required in more south
ern latitudes. The severe winter, the
piercing winds, the broader valleys and
grater amount of timber in latitudes fur
thersouth, will never allow Nebraska t?
sncpess-fully compete withsonthern Kan
sas in growing wool and raising stock.
The eastern portion of the Territtory,
for a distance of 150 miles back from
the river, is capabel of supporting quite
a dense population. Thi3 comprises all
the really valuable lands in the Territory
Nebraska will always possess a rea
sonably fair market for all snrplns pro
duce. Two or three different railroads
will in the course of the next three
years strike her eastern border. These
with the Missouri river and a line of
railway south to St- Joseph, Missouri,
furnishes excellent facilities for eastern
transportation, which, however, will
probably never be made available to any
considerable extent for the shipment of
exports, as there will always be a wes
tern demand for all surplus that Nebras
ka can raise.
ITS CIOGBAPniCAL POSITION
The geographical position of Nebras
ka, if not the best, is better than a ma
jority of the States. It i- in the gee
graphical center cf the continent, and
has within her borders located the main
trunk of the great Tacific Railroad, aq
enterprise of such gigantic magnitude,
destined to have such a controlling inllu
ence upon the direction ths commerce
and the welth cf this country and tha
world siiall take, that it cu.;.jv lull U
bring opulence and prosperity tooths re
gion thiough which it passes.
The leading towns in Nebraska are
are Nebraska City, Omaha, Phttsmouth
anb Brownville. Nebraska City has a
population of about S.C00 Omaha nearly
the same, with splendid future prospect
being the initial point of cne cf the bran
ches of the Pacific Railroad, Phttsmouth
has about 2,000, and Browsill1 atoqt
The writer of the atove doubtless get
his estimate of the population cf Brown
ville from persons living in sop.j of tha
up river Metropolises. Tho population
of Brownville is over 2,000, as this cor
respondent who appears fair in other
respects would admit were hs to seo
for himself. Ed.
THE PROBABLE WAR IN EUROPE.
There will apparently bs a conference
of the Europen powers, but it is genert
ally conceded that war is unavoidable.
This will not seem strange to any one
who reflects that there is a universal
wish in Europe to reconstruct t.hg map,
as it is called. That can be dons only
by peacful negotiations, or by war. But
what chance is there among the conflic
ting claims, and hot passions and ambi
tious of the various powers, that a har
monious redistribution could be mad9?
The wisest heads are clearly of the opin
ion that it is hopeless, and that it maj
not be possible to hold the Jogs of war
iu lash until the Congress dissolves.
Meanwhile the number cf tro?poz a
war footing is enormous. Tha Ncrtheru
Army of Austri alone under General
Benedek, upon the .frontiers of Prussia
and Saxony i3 composed of 350,000 men
and GOO gnn3. Tho Austrian force in
Venetia is 130,000 men, whilo the Aus
trian reserve comprises 600,000 men.
Venetia is being rapidly fortified. Th'J
Italian Arrny will coutain more than
500,000 meu, of whom 250,000 are al
ready in the first line, and are inspireqV
with the utmost enthusiasm. The Prus
sian force is immense, and Europe is al
ready a camp onco more.
There are two elemen s which have not
been much considered, but which may
prove to be of great importance. These
are Russians and the Republicans. Tho
people of Enrcpe at this time would har
dly allow the slrnggle to be mjrely a dy
nastic combat. They would seize tb.9
moment of universal tumult to demand
further rights; and wh?n a war once ba
gins cf the necessary proportions of this,
is impossible to foretell ths end or the
re?ults. A great deal mcrd than was;
meant will be bth won and lest !
A patron cf a village newspaper ones
said to the publisher :
"Mr. Printer, how is it ycu have nev?
er called cn me for the pay for your pa
"Oh," said tho man cf types, "wa
never ask a gentleman for money.'
"Indeed, replied his patron, "then how
do you manage to get along when the
don't pay ?"
"Why," said the editor, "after a ceir
lain time we conclude that a man who
fail.? to pay for his paper is not a ,gen?
tleman and then we ask h:m."
"Oh, ah, ye3 ! I see. Mr. Printer,
please give me a receipt, (hands him iwq
dollars,) and please make my name alj

A California parer says a large hks
has been discovered in that State, frcrr;
the waters of which can be obtained a

tingency that this foreign supply may'al

no little importance.
