would respectfully say, wait but a few weeks
and I will be prepared to supply your wants

believe, was ever opened in Nebraska, and at
prices as low, and, perhaps, lower than any
you have ever purchased at since the war. I
can guarrantee that I will have no' "shoddy'
goods, or slop-6hop' work in my store, as my
Clothing have been made up under my own
supervision from Goods purchased in the bolt
by yseLf. It 6hall be my endeavor to give
entire satisfaction both ln my Goods and
Prices, and can safely say to all it will pay you
to wait a short time and examine my stock
and prices before purchasing. -

On the evening of July 29th "Mr. Chaffee's
bed room was entered, and from his pants
pocket was taken one knife, one large key,
his pocket book contalnlngabout$351n money
and notes for about tlOO, and thirteen postage
stamps. On Friday night August 7th, the
residence of John Shuck ln Nemaha City was
ransacked throughout by some unknown
thief; Mr. Shuck loosing a knife he had car
ried lor fifteen years; Mrs. Shuck loosing her
pocket book containing $5, one pocket handr
kerchief, and one small pen knife. Her chil
dren's clothes were scattered over the floor.
On the same evening J. B. Hoover's resi
dence, in Nemaha City, was "run through."
nis pants taken from under his pillow, his
pocket book, containing over three hundred
dollars taken, his revolver, knife, his wife's
brestpln, handkerchief, and gold watch were
all taken, at least were missing next morn
ing. What is remarkable these persons are gen
erally easily awakened ; and Mrs. Shuck es
pecially complained of being drowsy and
6leepy when not in the open air, for two or
three days afterwards, and all the rest under
the Influence of some quieting drug for a few
days after awaking on Saturday morning.
During three weeks past a dark complex
ion, suspicious looking fellow by the name
Charles S. Clayton, without any vlsable
means of support, and who seemed to be
shedding old dirty clothes for newones,has
been boarding at Mrs, Emmons's boarding
house in this city. He is about five feet Ave
inches high, and weighs near 140 pounds.
Has a dark piercing eye, overhung by a heavy
dark eye bow; forehead running up and
slopi ng back. Hair black and short ; wears a
heavy moustache and coatee. He looks
straight and boldly at you, with a blank, ex
pressionless countenance, and clcely watches
the emotions and countenances of all qestlon-
ersj without in the least degree changing his
On Sunday morning last this man engaged
a livery team for a ride. Wm. II. Hoover,
having his eye on the man when he left, went
Into the boarding hocse with the Sheriff, and
recognizing some of his brother's property
made an affidavit of his belief in the guilt of
this man, had a warrant issued, took the
things found there, and the gentleman on
his return, Into custody, and had him brought
on Monday morning before his honor Judge
A. W. Morsran. for examination. Mr. Chaffe
identified some of the articles found as his,
Mr. Shuck and his wife identified some, and
Hr. and Mrs.IIoover identified some. ' Besides
the articles identified there was a tlOO bill, a
$. bill and several twenties, tens and fives,
which exactly corresponded with the cash
stolen In size and very near in quantity.
The prisoner had his attorney, but did not
attempt to explain his possession of the iden
tified articles, or ask the witnesses a single
question. He si emed to look on as a disin
terested llstner at the trial, wTfcti an open and
Intelligent countenance ; caring more to note
the exact temper of the two or three hundred
men and boys who surrounded him. He had
perfect control of every muscle of his face,
which betrayed no emotion or feeling what
ever during the whole examination.
LATER Chas. Clayton, the prisoner above
spoken of, turned State's evidence yesterday,
implicating in the recent robberies in this
city and at Nemaha, G.- W. Garrison, Ned
O'Pelt, Charles Morehead, aud Dan. Shadley.
His evidenceln the preliminary examination
before Justices Hughs and Morgan yesterday,
Implicates all of these men in the stealing or
hiding of the property taken. He claims that
what was taken Friday night at Nemaha was
not to be divided until on the Sunday night
on which he was arrested, and that he had
not possession of any of the articles to his
knowledge at that time, but that they must
have been pat where they were found while
he was out riding on Sunday. He also claims
that one or two of the above named were
with him on eVh expedition, and that they
knowing the premises best, went into the
houses which were entered, while he gener
ally stayed out and watched.
The evidence for the defence np to our going
to press had nearly proven analibl in thecase
of Korehead and Shadley iu the NemahaCity
Z7' &nd expected to do the same in all
Th9 Democrat, of last week, pittlfully
whines that we have become personal, and in
forms ub that he Is going for our personal
character this week. He is perfectly welcome
to Inaugurate this as soon as he desires. lie
for Lack of brains first went to the butcher
for aa idea; which we assisted him in venti
lating, ne went for the official acts of a Re
publican Council, we went for his ojtcial de
falcation, whereupon he says we owe him a
"little account," and calls us "a nJgger."
Thus stands the case Now for the personal

Moore's Life of Hon. Schuyler Colfax.
T-B. Peterson; A Brothers, No. 306 Chestnut
Stree, Philadelphia, have in press and will
publish ln a few days, "The Life of Hon.
Schuyler Colfax," written by Rev, A. Y.
Moor, of South Bend, Indiana, who was for
twenty years, as pastor and friend, in the
entire confidence of Mr. Colfax, and had
access to the files of the paper published by
Mr. Colfax for twenty years, and to the Con
gressional Globe : knows all his past history
and all who have known him from boyhood.
He began this biography two or three years
ago, so that it is not one of the hurried .and
ephemeral publications so common in elect
ion years. Mr. Moore is a gentlamen of fine
talent and culture, and there is no doubt but
that his biography of Mr. Colfax will be wor
thy of its distinguished subject. -
The following letter from Mr Colfax, to
Rev. A. Y. Moore will explain itself: .
WASHnrGTOX, D. C, May 30, 18CS.
"My Dear Mr. Moore :
"As your prediction of a year ago has been
realized, I have no further objection to your
publishing any sketch, more or less full, or
my life, you may have prepared. As you
were for a dozen years a fellow-townsman
of mine, and a valued friend. I suppose you
know as much about my history as the pub
lic would care about knowing; and al
though my engrossing duties here leave me
no time to revise the manuscript, I have no
fear that your work will not be a faithful one.
"Yours, very truly,
- "Schuyleb Colfax.
"Rev. A, Y. Moore, South Bend, Indiana"
It will be published in a large duodecimo
volume of five hundred pages, printed from
large type, and on the finest and best of white
paper, with a portrait, on steel, of Mr. Colfax,
executed by one of the first artists in the
county, ff om photographs taken of Mr. Col
fax within the last week ; the whole bound
in cloth ln the most substantial manner.
Price f 1,50 a copy. Canvassers wanted every
where. Large discounts. Copies will be
sent to any one at once, post-paid, on receipt
of price, by the Publishers. -
For the Next Thirty Days I will sell
Dry Goods, Notions, Clothing, Boots, Shoes,
and general merchandise at
Greatly Reduced Prices,
to make room for my splendid new stockf
Fall and Winter Goods, which I shall go East
for on or about the 15th of September. My
goods were all bought when they were at
their lowest prices, and great bargains can be
secured by buying goods at my store within
the next thirty days.

Gold has ruled strong during the week, and
the price has steadily advanced, closing in
New York at 148.
The Chicago Journal of Commerce says :
The foreign trade movement, the apprehen
sion of a break in the currant speculation on
the Bourses of Germany, the steady growth
of political excitement in prospect of the
election, and the fear of outbursts in the
South, combined to produced a very feverish
feeling in the Gold Room. This In connec
tion with the uuprecedentedly large exports
of specie, and the Increasing tendency of the
imports concurrently with a falling offin the
exports of produce, have produced an expec
tation that the supply of gold in the country
is likely to be reduced to an unusually low

. . An Address
To the Nervous and Debilitated, whose sufferings
have been protracted from bidden causes, and whose
cases require prompt treatment to render existence
desirable. If you are suffering or have sneered
from involuntary discharges, what effect does it
produce upon your general health? Do you feel
weak, debilitated, easily tired f Does a little extra
exertion produce palpitation cf the heart? Doea
your liver, or urinary organs, or your kidneys, fre
quently get out of order? Is your urine sometimes
thick, milky, orflocky, or is it ropy on setting? Or
does a thick scum rise to the top ? Or is a sediment
at the bottom after it has stood awhile ? Do you
have spells of short breathing er dyspepsia? Are
your bowels constipated? Do you have spells of
fainting or rushes of blood to the head? Is your
memory impaired ? Is your mind constantly dwell
ing upon this subject? Do you feel dull, listless,
moping, tired of company, cr life ? Do you wish to
be left alone, to get away from everybody? Does
any little thing make you start or Jump ? Is your
sleep broken or restless? Is the lustre of your eye
as brilliant? The bloom on your cheek as bright?
Do yon enjoy yourself in society as we.l ? Do yon
pursue your business with the same energy ? Do
you feel as much confidence in yourself ? Are your
splritsdull and flagging, given to fits of melancholy?
If so, do not lay it to your liver or dyspepsia. Have
you restless nights ? Tour tack weak, your knees
weak, and have but little apetlte, and yon attrib
ute this to dyspepsis or liver complaint?
Now, reader, self-abuse, venerial diseases baaly
cured, and sexual excesses, are all capable of produc
ing a weakness of the generative organs. The or
gans of generation, when ln perfect health, make
the man. Did you ever think that those bold, defi
ant, energetic, persevering, successful business
men are always those whose generative organs are
in perfect heatlh ? Ton never hear such men com
pNin cf being melancholly, of nervousness, of pal
pitation of the heart. They are never afraid they
taccot succeed in business ; they don't become sad
hr-i .i-enraged ; they are always polite and pleas
ast lu tae company of ladies, and look yon and
thera risvit ln the face none of your downcast
locks or any other meanness about them. I do
not mean those who keep the organs Inflamed by
tanning to excess. These will not only ruin their
constitutions, but also those they do business with
How many men from badly cured diseases from
the effects of self-abuse and excess, have brought
about that state of weakness in those organs that
has reduced the general system so much as to in

At the Fair of the Maryland Institute, which
