the Seniors and Representatives, of

ages, occupations, number or terms,

age with Senatorial honor, and youth
or middle age with Representatives,
but it is the contrary with this Legis

On V ednesday, in committee of the
whole in the Senate, there was a spir
ted debate on a bill to , abohsn the
death - penalty in cases of. murder.
There was a, great deal of eloquence
put forth by various members. Mr.
Cunningham, of Richardson, deliver
ed his maiden speech; and considering
that1 he is not a professional man, it
was quite a success. The bill -was
voted down, 9 to 4.' ., . .
Having business in the Representa
tive Hall this evening, I found the
House debating a bill "to license and
recrulate the sale of liquors." The
bill reads, "The applicant for a license
shall file with the county clerk, the
petition of at least ten freeholders of
the precinct' In .which he resides."
The struggle was on an amendment
to strike out the words "at least ten"
and insert in lieu thereof the words
a majority of the." I found Mr.
Shook on the floor advocating the
amendment, in a strain of eloquence
that I did not expect in one so young.
Mr. Church had also advocated the
amendment, but I did not hear his
As this amendment simply says
that a majority shall rule, I wa3 sur
prised to witness the opposition that
there was to this fundamental doc

that the friends of the whisky seller
are getting alarmed. -
There is one noticabie feature m tins
Legislature, there are no drunkards'
ia it. Is this an accident, or, have the
people of Nebraska come to the deter
mination that if a man will drink

elected to office? God grant that it is :

By the terms of the original Pacific
Railroad Bill, aid was granted one line
from Omaha, one from Atchison, and
owe from Kansas City. The subsidies
riven by the Government were only
eumcient to ouiia tne Atcnison line
or the Central Branch of the U. P. R.
R. to the one-hundredth meridian,
at which point it was to Intersect the
i f . .a ww w w
Kansas City line, or tne u. r. u.
But the U. P. Eastern Division Com-
fany procured a change of route and
aid . their track up the Smoky Hill
route, which threw them far south of
the Central Branch. So, when the
latter company had completed the
Atchison line to the meredian afore
said, there was no road there to con
nect with ; and a bill has been before
Congress to grant them further aid,
sufficient to complete the line up to a
union with the Omaha road. The bill
was lost in the Senate, last Tuesday,
by the close vote of 24 to 27.
Miss AwgustaSt. Clair, who lectured
in this city last fall, died recently at
Salt Lake City, after eight weeksT 111

native of London, and twenty years
old at the time of her death.
"The most solemn hour of my life,"
Bays old bachelor Mibbits, "was when
I was going home on a dark night,
from the widow Mopson's after her
youngest daughter Sally bad told me I
need not come again."
..Woman is composed of two hundred
and forty-three bones, one hundred
and nine muscles, and three hundred
and ninety-six pins, fearfully and
wonderfully made, and to be handled
with care to avoid scratches.
. A grim old judge, after hearing a
flowery discourse from a pretentious
young barrister, advised him to nick
out the feathers from the wings of his
imagination and stick them in the tail
of his judgment.
. A gentleman, traveling in a railway
carriage, was amused by a constant
fire of words between two ladies. One
of them at bust kindly inquired if their
conversation did not make his head
ache; when he answered, with a good
deal of ingeniousness : "No, ma'am ;
I've been married twenty yeara."
"Bob Brown, did you say that my
father had not as much sense as Billy
Smith's little yellow dog ?"
"No! I never said any such thing!
I never said that your father had not
as much sense as "Billy Smith's little
yellow dog. All I said was that Billy's
little vellow doer had more sense than
your father; that's all I ever said."
"Well, it well you didn't say the

We take pleasure in laying before
our readers the followinrr letter from J.
B.MoIton, E.q. Chief Engineerof the
North Missouri Railroad, to Dr. G. B.
Graff, of this city, President of the Ne
braska Trunk R. R. Company, show
ing up in detail tne important connec
tions with all parts of ths country
which the construction of that road
will secure to Nebraska. This letter
should be read by every one: Omaha
Hock Bluff, Neb., Jan. 30, 1SC0.
Geokge B. Ghaff,
, President Trunk Railroad, Neb,:
Dear Sir : Since making a recon-
noisance or your road from the Kansas
btate line to tlm point, my attention
ha3 been called to the fact that many
of your citizens along the route do not
seem to understand, or, at least, fail to
appreciate the important advantages
which will accrue to themselves and
the State by. the railroad connections
it will make to the north and east of
i ebraska, as well as the stimulant the
construction will have to push rail
roads; to the north of O.r.aha, and the
increased value it will give ta roads ex
tending westward to the Missouri
river. The Trunk road must be re
garded as but a short link in the long
chains of railroads leading from St.
Louis-to points both north and west
ofyour State, as well as giving adireet
line of rail from these points to the
Gulf of Mexico in several directions,
including the shortest line to the sea
by the Kansas City and Galveston
Railroad, now m rapid progress of
The St. Louis connection will for
the present be over the North Missouri
Railroad by its west branch to Kansas
City, in Kansas, and by the Missouri
Pacific, finished and in operation to
Leavenworth city. Before it will be
possible for you to complete your road
from the southern boundry of your
State along the Missouri river to Oma
ha, the line from Leavenworth to the
Sjate line will be completed and in op
eration, which will give the people of
Richaadson county, nearRulo. a direct
outlet south, bv two lines, to St. Loui3.
The Missouri Valley Railroad is now
putting down its track from a point
opposite Kansas City to a point oppo
site Atchison and Leavenworth city,
where bridges will be built soon and
where it is now proposed to construct
a transfer ferry similar to the one built
at St. Charleston the North Missouri
Railroad, by which cars are .rapidly
moved from one side of the river to
the other. The bridge at Kansas City
i3"now in a forward state of comple
tion, .which when finished will give
an outlet over the North Missouri
Railroad, to Sti 'Louis, and by the va
rious roads from that point, both east
and south. At Kansas City two out
lets east will be bad, one by the road
leading toQuincy, 111., and the other
over the west branch of the North
Missouri Railroad to Hannibal, and
thence east by road3 which will soon
be completed. At St. Louis, the south
ern connection will soon be completed
over the.. Iron Mountain Railroad,
which connects at Columbus with the
Mobile & Ohio Railroad, cutting the
whole southern system of railroads di
agonally to the Gulf of Mexico, from
the mouth of the Ohio river.
As it is the aim of all interior coun
tries to communicate with the sea by
the shortest line, I will direct your at
tention to the progress of the roads be
tween Kansas City, Missouri, and
Galveston on the Gulf. Track is now
being laid from Kansas City in the di
rection of Fort Scott, one hundred
miles south, which it will roach this
year; and will be pushed on to the
Indian lands near the southern boun
dary of Missouri without delay, with
the intention of a continuance until it
meets the lines of roads coming north
from Galveston. The attention of the
legislatures of Missouri, Arkansas and
Texas is now being caiiea to this great
question, and the opinion prevails
that the whole road to the sea on this
route will be speedily made and in op
eration. It is to be hoped that this
great question, so important to your
State, will receive proper attention at
the hands of yourself ana directors oy
calling on the State to grant such aid
as to enable you to secure such impor
tant advantages at an early date.
In connection with your trade in
the export of cereals, it is proper to
mention that the North Missouri Rail
road Company has extended its track
to the grain elevators in the city,
where grain can be shipped to New
Orleans, or to any part of Europe or
South America at the lowest possible
rates. The extensive barge system,
lately introduced, for the transporta
tion of grain in bulk to the sea from
St. Louis,' has greatly reduced the cost
of freight over the old plan, and saves
cost of sacks, a large item heretofore
in the expenses of the producer and
l wui, as they occur to me, aauresa
you on other important matters not
mentioned in this letter, in conciu-
v a a O i M m
sion, i win Dareiy anuue to tne iact
that, as far as I have examined the
route proposed for your road, no en
gineering difficulties are presented
which cannot be overcome at a mode
rate expense. .

The Directors of the Atchison and
Nebraska Railroad Company met at
Atchison on Tuesday, and finally lo
cated the route from Atchison to
White Cloud. The route runs near
Doniphan, thence up Rock Creek, pas
sing one mile and a quarter west of
Troy, then along the valley formed
by the stream known as Gabbert'a
Branch, to an outlet on Wolf River;
then follows the valley of Wolf River
till it reaches the Missouri River bot
tom, which it follows passing through
Iowa Point, and on to White Cloud.
The original plan did not embrace
Doniphan in the route, and ran west
of Troy two and a half miles. The
citizens of Doniphan agree to pay the
additional cost of building the road to
their town; and the location was
made to a point as near as possible to
Troy, being jnst one-half the distance
at first contemplated, upon the
strength of a pledge that Troy would
vote a subscription sufficient to cover
the increased cost of building the road
on the new location. Citizens of High
land also made liberal offers, but the
route through that place was decided
impracticable only one Director, we
understand, voting for the route.
We suppose the next thing in order,
is for White Cloud to vote the bonds
proposed. And then, it is to be hoped,
the Company will go to work in ear
nest and push the read along, and
show that they Jrnean business. Any
further balking and dilly-dallying,
will destroy public confidence in the
enterprise. Nothing disgusts the peo
ple quicker than an apnearance of
shystering on the part of such Compa
nies. Buncombe has served its pur
posenow let us see the dirt fly!

Wonderful Discovery of a
Great Cave A' car Oniaaa,
From a reliable pera we gather
the following very interesting infor
mation which will ad,t much to the
numerous archaeological discoveries
recently made in the Missouri and
Mississippi valleys. The various
mounds both north and south of our
city have heretofore given ybe to much
speculation and conjecture. The fact3
which we hereby relate vri undoubt
edly throw a brilliant light on ail that
relates to the history and customs of
tne ancient races who once inhabited
the Missouri alle3-.
About a mile south of the valuable
property of the Credit Foncier Co,
known as Trainville, lies the Omaha
fctone Quarry Reserve, now owned by
our enterprising citizen, John Green.
The immense demand for building
rock to be used by the great Missouri
bridge company and for the erection of
the many proposed nulroadj and pri
vate 'dwtlling, erased the employ
ment of a large force by Mr. Green,
who is steadily cngsged in breaking
rock and other work ia his stone
qu.-.rry. urcat quantities of rock have
already been taken out, and one of the
shafts is now over one hundred feet
below thesurface. Saturday afternoon,
two Bohemian laborers named Wen
zel Zika t nd John Elama, while at the
bottom ofthi3 shaft attempting to raise
a large rock. Budaeniy missed their
footing by the fall of the rock into a
cavity about five feet below, which al
so carried bth men with it. They
were somewhat stunned by the fall,
but with the exception of a few slight
brui3es, sustained no other injury.
Upon further examination they Cis
co ve red a pasaags leading in a south
easterly direction. As the men were
not prepared to follow up their discov
ery, nothing rurther was done tiil
yesterday morning,- when a party of
live workmen, properly supplied with
torch-lights, spades, etc., wore lowered
into the opening.
'ihey entered the passage, which
seemed nothing more than a natural
formation. The gray limestone walls
were covered by an irregular arch
about three feet wide and five feet high,
opening wider and higher as the par
ty advanced. Auer proceeding about
one hundred feet, a hissing sound re
sembling "the escape of steam was
heard; and a strong sulphur, smell
emitted, evidently from the other end
of the passage. After a short consul
tation, the party resolved to proceed at
all hazards and solve the mystery.
They had not advanced more than
flny Teet when the passage suddenly
turned a sharp angle to the south, aj
at the same time disclosing a wide
opening , into a hall of magnificent
TfririnrH,-ira Tlita trrr tint! rr Vo'i-
er cave, is . about two hundred feet
long, ' forty feet wide, the greatest
height in the centre estimated about
fifty feet. Beautiful stalectites, of a
light grey color, hang down from the
lofty ceiling. At the entrance and
along the sides, grotesque columns
formed from the dripping of the lime
deposit now supported the massive
arch above. -
The ground of a dark color, covered
by a brown brittle crust, showed a vol
canic origin. At one end of thi3 hall,
the cause of the hissing noise and sul
phurous smell was soon discovered in
the shape of a rock from which jet3 of
sulphuric steam were steadily forced,
while below was a huge basin-shaped
rock, containing sulphur water which
was boiling up, although it did not
overflow the basin. . -
But the most wonderful discovery
made by the explorers wa3 the record
of an ancient civilization, in the char
acters and figures engraved and pain
ted on the walls. " These are descriled
as drawings of animals, some of which
resembled no animal now known, and
of men and women who resemble the
Caucasian rather than the American
nice. On the largest of the pillars, a
double triangle enclosing an eye, ham
mer, and a square was distinctly traced
Not far from the sulphur spring, a
arge deposit of bones of enormous size
was found, among them a tusk which
measured nearly five feet long, this
he rartv carried awav. It can ho swn
in the show window at 2C0, Famam
street. There was also found what
seems to be a saddle and bridle made
of bones of some animal, and instead
of leather there are dried sinews and
strings resembling cat-gut; thestirrup
is arjout rour incne wide, ana in the
shape of the fore part of a boot and of
metal which seems to be a composi
tion of copper and silver. Thi3 dis.
covery ia particularly interesting to
naturalists, as it was heretofore be
lieved that homes were first introduced
into America by Cortez.
The party found a number of arrows.
an ax of tha same material as the stir
rup, and other small implement of
stone. A passage was also discovered
leading to some other apnartment, but
as this was almost entirely blocked by
rocKs, which must have caved into the
passage, the exploring party returned
without further search.
It i3 now easy to account for our
Saratoga sulphur spring north of this
city, which evidently has a subtera
neous cennection with the spring in
the cave. As we now have a party of
scientific men taking astronomical ob
servations in this city, it would be well
if this discovery, with Its hleroglpby
ics, could be examined and reported on.
Mr, Green's quarry will undoubted
ly hereafter be a resort for tourists and
curiosity seekers. We shall report
further particulars of thLi discovery
after personal inspection.
A three-year old youngster saw a
drunken man "tacking" through the
street. "Mother," "did God make
that man?" She replied In the affir
mative. The little fellow reflected for
a moment, and then exclaimed: "I
wouldn't have done that."
An Irishman, on hearing of a
friend having a stone coffin made for
himself, exclaimed : . "By me aowl,
and that's a good idae. Sure an' a
stone coffin 'ud last a man a lifetime."
The following colloque took place
between a New York census-marshall
and a native of Germany :
"Who lives here?".
"What's your name 7"
"Sharmany on der Rhine."
"What's your father's name?"
"Nix fer sthay."
"When did you arrive in Albany?"
"Mit a steampoat3."
. "Got any children ?"
"Yaw two barrels mit krnut."
"How long have you been in this
"Two and der basement."
"Who owns this building?"
"I pays nothing. Han3 pays der

"Where did you live last year?"
"Across de red store as you coaie up
