This road is now finished from Coun
cil Bluffs as far south as the Nishnabot
ona, a point cpposit Aspinwall in Nemeha
County, at which place it delivers its
passengers and mails to the elates fcr
conveyance to Fcrest City, a distance of
twenty miles, when they are redelivered
to the railroad and sent on their nay to
St. Jo. By the first cf August, this tw enty
mile gap will be finished. We had the
pleasure to ride on this road from the
Brownville Station last week to Council
Bluffs; thia road is supplied ty good pasen
ger coaches running under the manage
ment of Mr. Geo. D. Brown, one of the
most intelligent attentive and genieleman
ly conductors it has ever been cur good
fortune to meet with. The road is smooth
for a new one, and runs through one of the
richest valleys in the west, the growing
grain on either side of the track looks well
and the short distance of eighty miles
North, gives one some idea of the differ
ence in climate in so short a distance.
Farmers are busy plowing out their corn
near Brownvill, for the last lime., in corn
to high as nearly to hide the man and his
horse. At Council Bluffs for the first
time in corn from five to ten inches
high. One of the passengers recently
from the Pennsylvania Central railroad
remarked on seeing the large fields cf
corn near Brownville, "I could hardly
make the people, where I came from,
believe that corn was about tasselling out
in Nebraska when their'g was so small
This place, having no natural advanta
ges above many another point on the
Missouri River, is a living exemplifica
tion of the value of a few wide-awake,
enterprising men, who, seeing the chance,
are bound to take the risks even when
the odds are against them. Having the
lead now by au immense distance, all
other points have ceaeed to be rivals,
and are only seeking to avail themselves
cf some of the benefits accruing to Oma
ha by virtue of her success. At one
time a few thousand dollars would have
turned the scale in favor of Plattsmouth,
Nebraska City or Brownville. Now, as
many millions would scarcely over-come
the influence in favor cf Omaha. As
capitalists prefer safe investments rather
than doubtful contests, the millions will
naturally drift toward Omaha, while the
thousands divide at the other points men
tioned. So Omaha will remain the chief
City of Nebraska, and the others will
have to contend for the second position.
What made Omaha first is still potent
to secure the second. Brownville can
attain to it, but will she ? Every man in
Nemaha County desires it, but have they
the grit to force the matter on an
even chance? If not, time, money, and
enterprise, in locations which have, will
oon place the chances out of our reach.
Omaha believe in and lives by adverti
ing, she has been built up by the power
of the Press. Go where you willlook
into what part you may and Omaha is
constantly before you. The public mind
centers their and but little elso is known
Council BIniTs, Ioira.
We visited this growing City for the
first time last week. Council Bluffs is
well situated to do a large wholesale
trade up and down the river on both sides.
It is easily accessable from all the towns
near the river in Iowa, Missouri, and
Nebraska, it is a good point at which to
concentrate heavy stocks of goods. Rents
are low, and freight reasonable. It
can be reached within one day from any
point on the river within one hundred
miles. A reasonable amount of adver
tising and capitol in the hands of enter
prising men would soon make of Council
Bluffs a trading point of considerable
importance, lacking ' these, St. Joseph
will take the trade and make the City.
Business men are naturaly conservative,
and it takes thea some time to "accept
the situation" to adapt themselves to
the change which circumstances are con
itantly making. So with the trade of
Council Bluffs. Wholesaling is now their
destiny, but they may fight against fate
until ine day cf grace is. sinned away.
The wholesale trade has been going South
for many years, and just now is the very
time to change the current. Two months
from this time, when the C. B. St.
Jo. Road is completed, Council Bluffs
will have bit her opportunity. There
are good Stocks of goods there now, but

We attended, on Tuesday of last week
the evening Session of the Christian
Convention at the M. E. Church in
Council Bluffs, Iowa. This Convention
was composed of ministers and laymen
of all religious denominations in Western
Iowa, Nebraska and North Western
Missouri. There appears tu. be a gen
eral desire to devise means to increase
the usefulness of both ministers and lay
men in the work of Christian Redemption.
A full account of the proceedings for the
several days they were in sessicn can be
found in the Council Bluffs Jfonparid, a
copy cf which was furnished us by the
Editor. In the Council Bluffs Democrat
of same date can be found the following
concerning the Convention and its dele
gation: "This whole church convention bu?i
nes? is going headlong to destruction.
It is now but little else than a convoca
tion of dirty, broken down political hacks,
wife-vvhippers, and child brainers ! a
band of renegades and unprincipled
"religious quacks and fanatics."
The Delegation from Iowa to the New
York Convention were instructed for

comparing notes, one for immediate re
pudiation of the public debt without con
dition, seven for the Pendletonian pro

dently on the quick sands. The fourth

relief a narrow plank for a'.anding
We are informed that the mail for

reliance for the latest news, and its ir

Washington, June 20.
The President to-day sent a message
to the House vetoing the Arkansas ad
mission bill. He says hi3 approval of
the bill would be an admission that the
reconstruction acts of Congress were
proper and constitutional.- His opinions,
he asserts, in reference to these meas
ures have undergone no change, but on
the contrary have been strengthened by
results which have attended their excut
ion. The President goes on to say that if
Arkansas is not a State in the Union this
will not admit her as a State : if, on the
other hand, she is a State in the Union, no
legislation is necessary to declare her en
titled to representation. H says that
all that is necessary to secure Arkansas
in all its constitutional relations to the
Government is a decision by each
house upon the eligibility of those pre
senting themselves for admission to Con
gress from that State. This, says Mr.
Johnson, is the plain and simple plan of
the constitution, and he once more earn
estly recommends that it be adopted.
He quotes from the bill the prescribed
fundamental conditions upon which Aak
ansas is declared entitled to representat
ion, and says he is unable to find in the
constitution any warrant by which Con
gress may assume power to impose fund
amental conditions on a State which has
been duly admitted into the Union on
an equal footing with the original States
in all respects : to give Congress power
to regulate the elective franchise would
be to reverse the fundamental princip
les cf the republic.
Afier referring to other objectionable
feature of the bill the President concludes
by asking would it not be the point cf
wisdom to take for our guide the Fed
eral Constition rather than to resort to
measures which looking only to the pre
sent may in a few years renew in an
aggravated from the strife caused by
legislation which has proved to be so ill
timed and unfortunate. .

Terror and Consternation In the
M. F. LaMasters, deputy United
Slates Collector, and United States Dis
trict Attorney Strickland, for the past
few days have been stirring up the
small, one horse distilleries located, in
by and forbidden places in this vicinity,
and have brought to the surface develop
ments showing that in several "sly cor
ners and nooks" many persons have
confederated together, to defraud Uncle
Samuel of his just dues, locating small
distilleries of he capacity of from one to
three barrels per day. One of said dis
tilleries ha? -been seized, and several
others have been arrested in their career
of distiilins. and the sequel bids fair to
produce a development that will astonish
the uninitiated in the business of the ca
pacity of liquor dealers to evade the law
without directions; but we are certain
that the vigilance of the officers of Gov-,

further illicit manufacture of spiritous
liquors in this vicinity. Republican.

Exercise In School.
"A raw mind in a healthy bodj," ia of all things
th most desirable.
Our Creator has so constituted as that the boij
cannot fuller without effecting tbe mind. The high
est style cf mac, ia the one who possesses a highly
cultivated mind in a well developed and perfectly
healthy body. But how very seldom da we find
these two combined.
Look at our educated men and women J their mo
ken eyes, long, thin cand&verous faces, stoop-shoulders
narrow chest; all indeed proclaim them great
students, but indicate premature decay, early death
and a sickly puny posterity. Look where you will
ypu scarcely 2nd a real healthy educated man or
woman ia this country. -
It is evidently a fact that the American people
are fast becoming weaker if not wiser; and if it
were not for the constant ic3 iiLof foreign immi
gration, the bone and sinew oftAir country would
soon be wanting.
Take the people whose ancestors came to this
country a hundred years ago, and you will find that
they as a class are sickly.
Among the many cases that might be mentioned
for this, 1 will simply mention oar defective system
In the history of Rome we find that a man was
not considered educated who could not excel in
some athletia sport, such as running, leaping, wres
tling, boxing, shooting with the bow. throwing ihe
spear, sword excrciee, horseback riding, C'c; and in
every school in those days yoacg men were expected
to spend a large portion of their time in some such
exercise. Inns we find that Virgil, although a
very learned man, yet labored among his Cocks
and Caetar, Cato, and Brutus, with a host of others
were not only great orators, bat endured great hard
ships in the field and camp. Solon and Lycurgus
made physical training co-equal with intellectual
Bat how is it among us? as a people we lcoae
sight of the body when we desire to educate the
mind, and so morbid have some become, in their
views, that they really think their children are not
advancing intellectually unless they see them with
a book in their hand from the moment they arrive
in the morning till they return at night. And un
less the teacher keeps the child in the school room
from the moment school opens till its close, they are
ready to censure him and call them a poor stick, Ac.
A child's bvdy is growing, and this natural
growth must nor be retarded or it will Barely retard
the mental development.
And as the body naturally grows faster than the
mind, more e&re should be taken about that, than
about the mind. The mind Kill continue to grow
long after the body has matured; hence we only
need to keep the mind growing in the proper direc
tion, and not be so anxious about maturing it too
As a general rale, a child should be allowed two
hours for bodily exercise for every one devoted to
study. The study will then be earnest and success
ful. This idea that a child must be kept droning over
his book from "early dawn till late at eve" ia heth
enish, and simply slows the ignorance of &a per
son requiring it.
VTe once heard of a family taking their children
out cf school because the teacher had tbe ehilJreu
exercise two or three times a day in swinging their
arms lack and forth a fe w times. The same family
opposed introducing a black-board in school. .-
Such persons are unworthy cf any notice by the
teacher, and should be treated with silent contempt,
and if they widh to make aa k-ig fooh of their chil
dren as they show theniselvej to be, why let them
have the privilege; wecenfesa we hive no patience
with such persons.
We earnestly reoommend a system of gymnastics,
or evcimjing of the hand and stepping oAeetin
all of our comman schools, we have tried it and
know it to be very beneScial to the school in all re
spects. Every teacher can invent a system of his tr
her own. .
After the children have been studying, say cce
hour, let the teacher call them all to their feet with
one clap of his hands, and then let him give them a
hearty drill, bringing all the muscles he can into
requisition in perfsct harmony of action, for ahcut
three cr five minutes, and then let them return to
tboir books, and he will find them more earnest in
their studies, more obedient, happier and healthier.
Teachers should make their students earnest in
their studies, have them work with all their might
xa'nd and strength, while at their books; but should
not keep them standing but a short time at once.
Let study and recreation be so interspersed that the
student will take hold cf each with a hearty relish
Let playing ball, roll the hoop, swinging, running,
races, leaping, and ail other innocent athletic
amusements be encouraged, and let special pains
be taken by the directors to provide means of exer
cise, and thea let them put in their school, a judi
cious teacher who knows when to have his pupils
study and when to let them play or exercise, and we
are sure the children will be more likely to grow up
healthier, wiser, and better, than their parents.
While we know there are other causes tending to
make us a sickly people, we inust believe our defec
tive educational system has a very great influence
in that direction.

be an earneit and radical supporter of the principle
