I would most respectfully enquire
how the School Money is apportion
ed and by whom ? On refering to our
faithful County Clerk's report I find
that upwards of $10,000 was (o be ap
portioned to the District Schools of
Nemaha county this year. Now, nr,
School District contains forty-two
children under 21 years and over live,
and the sum wo have received up to
the present time, aid for the past year,
is $40 10; if each School District- re
ceived the same sum in proportion to
its scholars, it follows that Nemaha
county is the banner county for babies
for in the same ratio Nemaha county
contains 10,000 children. Now, Ma
Editor, I am not fault Ending, but ak
information on this subject in good
Each School District levies its own
tax for School purpose, wii'el' tax is
placed upon the tax duplicate a:ni is!
collected with the other taxes, and so !
much of said tax levied upon each
district and collected from the tax
payers of such district is payable to
School purposes In said district; less
one per cent, for collection. Thus
each district levies its own tax and
tpportions it by the promptness of its
own tax payers. As soon as our old
County Clerk finishes up his state
ments for past years which we are
informed will be soon and has them
published, and our new Clerk does
the same, everything will be explained
by their figures satisfactorily to all.

We are pleased te be able to an
nounce to our readers, and the citizens
cf this county, more particularly, that
a project is now on foot, with the most
Cattering prospects of immediate-success
to consummate a long needed,
' much desired, and all important en
terprise. We refer to the extension of
the St. Ix)uis Pacific Railroad. This
"roai is now completed, as all are
"e, to Leavenworth, Kansas, and
.ime has arrived when it must ex
ad up the Missouri river, to at Ient
naha for the present, and ere long to
ootuh. This enterpris e our people
iiave talked much and thought fa
.J vcrably cf, and it is only now ueces
tzsj to let them know that the pros
pects for the hasty completion of the
road are all that could reasonably I e
deared. The plan is to run the road
through Nebraska immediately on the
tank cf the Missouri river. Thus the
road wilL In this county, pass through
every river town in it. A company is
ia proccs3 of organization, composed
cf men in all the principal points in
Ntlrsska, St. Louis and New Yoik,
who mean business, and will, in all
probability, commence work yet this
' winter, and early in the spring com
mence operations all along the line.
This however will depend somewhat

We give the public this much infor

Yic3-President Colfar at Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, Nov. 5. Hon. Schuy
ler Colfax, Vke Prefidnt elect, ar
rived here this ewning. He was met
at the Union depot by an immense
crowd, who received him with enthu
siastic cheers which he acknowledged
by bowing. He is here in fulfillment
of a promised visit to Gen. Morehcad,
who met him at the denot and tonk
Jiim to hi residence, in the Eleventh
ward. Here Mr. Colfax was enter
tained at a sumptuous banquet, a large
number of prominent citizens being
present.. During the evening he was
serenaded by a Tanner club and a
great multitude of citizens. During
theevening he made two brief speeches
He complimented the citizens cf the
county of Allezhany upon it mag
nificent majority for the right on
lie said tliere Is a trinity of princi
ples in the victory of Tuesday liberty
tor all, justice for all, protection for ali,
and by that sign we conquered. There
was another reason why this young
and patriotic party succeeded it de
clared that we ought to enfranchise
rather than enchain, elevate rather
thau crush, build up rather than tram
pie down, and because we bore our
cause down to the humble and help
less. Though denounced by all the ene
mies of right in this broad land, we
went forward to conquer and win sal
vation for the Union, 1;3 we gave em
ancipation to the slave. Applause.
When, in this contest, we were the
only party in this broad land that
dared to stand by . the downtrodden
and helpless people of the South
against the party that, dishonored us
as a nation, andVhen upon our heads
were invoked .the .blessings of those
who loTed our country.
I know you rejoiced cn the night of
the election over the victory which we
won. I know yoa rejoiced over the
result; but some were rejoicing in
their hearts who did not show what
was passing in their minds they were
the tried Union men of the Suth who
rejoiced not in their public squares,
but hung upon the outskirts of hostile
crowds to learn whether they were to
have protection, or whether their
dourest r:!4- '.ould be outraged;
and whtii : res sped the news
that the t .: voice of the r ' " '?
had spoken . : t ..id there : '
rrctectioa to i..ein, the lo;
lue South gathered r.ro '
hearthstones and thanked i.
liis Providence had protected them.
There are two sharply defined ques
tions which have been settled -by the
voice of the. reople. The Democratic
-:atfom de.I: red in the portion of It
v,nttcM by Y.'ade Hampton, thfii"the
reconstruction measures of Congress
were unconstitutional, revolutionary
and void," tind the American people
trampled that platform Under their
feet a-i they had trampled the platform
which tour years before declared the
war a failure, and demanded a cessa
tion of hostilities. The voice of t he
people, from whose decision there is
no appeal, has declared that the recon
$truction measures of Congress are not
unconstitutional, revolutionary and
void. We have declared the voice of
the people, is to be obeyed .and the law
to be enforced,' whether rebels like
them or dislike them. Cheer.
The second principle which hai
been settled by the popular vote is.
that every man has a right to e:o
South or North, East or West, so long
as he is devoted to the principles of
our government, and le protected by
itagainstoutrag?and wrong. Cheers.
To-day the only place in this bro..d
lanu where the people are prevented
from singing the battIe-song.s of the
war, such m "Down with the traitors
md up wifh the stars" is in the blood
stained fields of the South, where your
soldiers fell. You could sing those
songs among the banditti of the Alp
or among the thugs of India. The
only pluee where you could not sinf1,
them is over the graves of dead
soldiers.'. Hut we are going to have a
ltnd so free and so loyal, presided over
' .v ; rin so true to his country, that
i m t sing those song1 anywhere.
. .Ve. I speak of President
:rorn his own utterances. You
will find, before he wrote those mag
netic word.4, "Let u.3 huv pecel'.1 if
yon look back to his acceptance .ipeee'i
when the committee waited upon him
and I remember hearing the words
as I afterwards cad them that he
said he was for peace und ciuie! and
protection everywhere; and What he
says he generally doc. . Cheers.
He will bring to the duties devolving
upon him as President, the same ener
gy, the same ability and the will that
has hitherto characterized him, and
when he says there shall be peace and
quiet, and protection everywhere,, let
tiaitors beware, for he means what he
fcr.y8 and will carry it out A- voice,
'string up Wade Hampton. ' -
I cm tell you one thing, my frinda ;
this party that ha been smuggling for
the supremacy and carried two North
ern States, (New York and New Jer
sey) by unblushing frauds, that has
carried six Southern States by the
votes of men who had no sympathy
with our flag; that party will never
appear before you r.gain until they
have new 'eaders. Cheers. And
vht-y will huve ;o get soaie now prin
ciples besides. I do not think Wade
Hampton will make any more plat
forms fo.- the Democratic party I do
cot think Vallr.ndigham will nom
nate any more -fresiuenti. I do not
think Preston and Iorre t will nomi
nate any more Vice-Presid3nt-;.
As for the future under the admlnis
tration of Gen. Grant I look forward to
an era of peace and prosperity ; 1 an era
of development in all manufacturing
and all agricultural interests, which
are the very backbone of any nation
beneath the circuit of the sun: with
Grant's zeal to t top every wasteful ex
penditure or you trea uiy, and hi
opiosition to every event to imneril
your business; with Grant, who, un
der a Divine 1'rovidence, has been
called to fill the Presidential chair, I

that there is not a single Democrat in

them in the House. In the election

tricts the Democracy have beeu as un
fortunate as they were in the State
Senate. . We have elected "all,' the
district attorneys. . .
We have fairly swept the State down
to the county officers. There we find
the Democracy as badly off as they arc
in the Legislature. They have carri
ed only fivk counties in the State,
and those among the least populous;
while every one of the leading coun
ties has gone against them. Even
their principle strongholds have been
wrenched irom them, and there is lit

Nebraska, bordering on the far-off
Territories, and connected, . through
the Union Pacific Railroad, directly
with the fearful cities of the Plains,
peopled by roughs and desperadoes of
every grade and kind, was peculiarly
exposed to fraud and violence. They
could easily come in by bauds and
overawe the honest citizens, and in a
conntry where men openly carry re
volvers strapped around their waists,
and long knives in their boots, with
out at all offending against the fash
ion, it was not to be wondered at if vo
ting was at times a rough and risky
matter. As it was, however, the reg
istry law effectively prevented all
fraudulent voting, ballot-box stuffing,
and violence, and o n election day life
was safer and law more sacred in
Omaha than Philadelphia. Forney'
The election of Grant, within twelve
hours after it was generally known,
reduced tbe premium on gold J of one
per cent., and added more than half a
cent to tiie value of every greenback
or National bank dollar in circulation.
This would increase the purchasing
power of the volume of the currency
to the extent of nearly three and one
half millions of dollars. Thus do the
