of Congress commences on the first
Monday in December. It's proceed

the general reader. Subscriptions to

reports of Congressional proceedngs.
The telegraph Informs us that at
Newcastle, DeL, seve persons were
imntehed on the 21st by the whipping
post and pillory, for some petty offen
ces. An old man 70 years of age re
ceived 20 lashes on the bare back, and
another man was placed in the pillory
until helpless from the cold and then
taken out and warmed up with 20
lashes on the bare back.
We find among our State exchanges
the Gazette, a very Interesting weekly,
published by Messrs. Andrew & Press
on, of Tecumseh, Johnson County.
From our knowledge of the gentle
men, we expected a good readable
family newspaper, and we are aot dis
appointed. The Gazette can. and will
do more for Johnson County than any
other one enterprise in which her peo
ple are engaged, and should receive a
During our. absence many articles
were sent us for publication, which
remained unopened on our arrival
home, most of which it is now too late
to publish. The despatch of the Hon.
J. I. Itedick, to the Grand Republican
."ft ally at Brownville, was among the
many papers oo our table. This dis
patch sparkled with wit and humor,
as all of Mr. Redlcks productions do.
The letter from Peru we print this
week, as it Is not too late fer the notice
Brownville has her three newspapers.
So Nebraska City and Omaha are no
to be outdone, but must fallow suit;
and to complete the arrangement, we
now are In receipt of No. 1, Vol. 1, of
a six column "Literary Paper," head
ed "The Omaha Evening Timet,"
published by the Times Printing Coo
pany, at the low rate of $8 per year.
Mr. Calhoun is at the head of the Ed
itorial Department. It gives a good
variety of reading matter, more than
the average of dally papers.
The Nebraska City Xcws says that
there has been no tax levied lo pay the
interest on the County Bonds, issued
to the Midland Pacific Railroad. Com
pany, and as the county authorities
have levied taxes to the full limit of
the law. No tax can be levied to meet
the interest due on the Bonds issued
to Mr. Phelps. The totalissue amounts
to $190,000. From these facts It ironi
cally presumes that "the Midland Pa
cific Company will push their work
with renewed energy."
It will bo remembered that In 1857
the Board of Directors of the Union
League of Philadelphia offered $1100
in sums of $500, $300, $200 and $100, as
prizes for the best four essays on the
legal organizations of the people, to
select Candidates for office of Presi
dent and Vice President.
. Many plans were received, but those
receiving the prizes have been pub
lished in pamphlet form, a cony of
which is before us. V e promise here
after to give a sy uopeis of the different
plans to the public in the Advertiser,
There appears to be at the present
time much gambling and speculation
on Wall Street, N. Y., over what is
known as the "Erie Stocks." Aa we
understand it, the Stock has been, re
cently "watered" to the tune of $23,
000,000. By this means the bears and
. bulls of Wall Sifcet have won from
Daniel Drew, one of the great railroad
Kings, over $1,000,000, antf so-the play
proceeds. The fight haebef-n tcans
fered from Wall Street to the Courts,
where hardly. less corruption exists
than at the market places for transac
tions in Stocks and Gold.
We have now been connected with
the Advertiser one year. We com
menced cautioualjvwith some misgiv
ings as to pur ability to acceptably
serve the public in the new relation
thus assumed. We have received
from our patrons from time to time,
hearty commendations which encour
aged us to proceed. The patronage for
the paper and the office has very large
ly increased during the past year. We
have enlarged the paper and furnished
the office out and out with new mate
rial, and we are still constantly ma
king new purchases of type and fix
tures, with the view of maJrtng this
one of the most complete office for
Job Work In the State. New subscri
bers are gradually filling up our sub
scription books. We make no sudden
acquisition of large numbers, but one
bo one they file in, with the advance
pay. We dun no one, for all volunteer
to square their account at the proper
time. In this way we have had not
the first unpleasant interview with
any of our patrons. We now propose
toenter upon the labor of another year.
. The public have been generous over
our faults and short comings for the
past year, and we hope they will ex
ercise the same wise forbearance for the
year to come. We are not so eelfcon
ccited as to suppose that we have done
the very best that could have been
done iotbe premises. Still we have
the proud consciousness that we have
ever striven so to do. We think we can
make a better paper (or the year to
come. We know that the experience
cf the past year is worth something to
us, and we wish to make it availably
in the future to ourselves and the pub-
As the time for the tvjFerabllng of
the coming Session, of our Legislature
approaches Railrcad excitement in
tensifies. It will be one of the impor
tant duties of that body to establish a
general system of Railroads for the
State, or at least to devise, from the
many applicants for aid, in what man
ner and to what extent the public lands
of the State are to be set apart to aid in
their construction. The River towns
have their projected line rxmnlag
west The Nemaha and Big Blue
ValUes each present strocg claims for
public aid, and in any system of ap
propriations that rosy be adopted the
claims of all ar t be considered. We
have for this purpose 450,000 acres of
the best lands of the State, estimated
now to be worth $3,000,000, . and we
hop ihla munificent sum, in the ex
citement of the hour, will not be frit
tered away, so that really necessary
roads will receive no material assist
ance from the donations they get. We
are aware that the public mind is in
no favorable mood to wisely dispose of
this great trust. They demand prompt
and immediate action. They will brook
no delay not even sufficient, we fear,
to adjust the law of appropriation to
the future well being of the State.
There Is danger that from too much
excitement and haste the power of the
State to aid will be exhausted without
adequate return for the money we have
to invest. The aid of the State should
be so offered as to attract the largest
amount of outside capital within our
limits, and to do to it requires time,
study, mature statesmanship and good
financeerlng. We must not act hasty
and then repent at leisure, but must
act carefully and secure the public

The last report of Hon. James S.
Wilson, Commissioner of the General
Land Office, Is very interesting in ?ts
statements of the business of that
department. From it we learn that
6,000,000 acres of public lands disposed
of for cash, and to homesteaders and
pre-emptors ; the cash receipts being
over $1,600,000, and that disposed for
actual settlement adding about 23,500
farms to the productive resources of the
country. 8,503 of these are within the
limits of the Southern public lands,
more, perhaps, than have been opened
up in the same length of time within
the post ten years. The Pacific rail
roads have thus far received grants to
the extent of 155,000,000 acres of land

one half times as much as has already

statistical showing is made of the ex
tension and development of the edu

113,006 educational establishments in

result is, that towns are greatly im

on; the broad prairies are made to

For the followlngreaSons :
Up to the present date the politi
cal issues of the day have seemed to
engross the public attention to the ex
elusion of all other topics, and the lira

will hardly admit of the necessary cor

appointments, Ac, Ac.

schools will not commence before De

undoubtedly tha time to strike. We

every district within the county.

of Education during the coming win

Dispatches from Salt Lake give an
account of a mob attempting to de
stroy Bear River City on the 20th. A
mob of 200 men attacked the city be
cause three roughs had been hung at
that place on the 11th, and burned the
Frontier Index office and the jail.
The citizens immediately armed and
fired upon the mob, and drove them
out of the city into the mountains
Twenty of the mob are reported killed
and thirty-five wounded, among the
latter are the ring leaders Smith and
Daily. They have sent word to the
citizens to send away their women
and children, as they would again at
tack the town with 400 men. Troops
had been telegraphed for from Fort
Bridger. Bear River city is eighty
miles east of Salt Lake.
Later accounts say the mob attacked
the city Friday night but were re
pulsed by the citizens with a loss in
killed of twenty. Tom Smith, one of
the leaders, is still alive and under ar
rest. Troops arrived Saturday morn
ing. No more trouble anticipated.
