We sttulel the closing exercises
the primary department of the Brown
vilie IFlgh School, on Usf Friday,
Miss JTcXaughton and Mrs. Moore are
the teachers, and the exercises consis
ted, of declamation, the recital of dia
lues and music. We found the
large chappel. room of the building
filled with children from six to ten
years of age, numbering about one
hundred and fifty of them. Consid
ering the agc.of the children, we pro
nounce the performances very credit
able. Many spoke too low to be dis
tinctly heard over the room; this fault
will be corrected as they grow older.
We are always pleased to meet little
children, and are- more-than, happy to
fice them strlrlrrg witlrall their might
to make smart men and women as
they grow older; and to aid them, we
employ the best of teachers. The
three other teachers held no- public
exercises on-that evening".- ,
The election of a School Director
will bo a duty for all to attend to on
next Monday.- The election will he
held as directed by the- published
and posted notices in the various
school districts throughout the State.
At tho meeting, taxes may be levied
for icaclKirs, school houses, Incidental
or library purposes.- "Wo published
the school law last week S9 that all
may know just what the law author
izes themto do. ' It will be observed
that "every Inhabitant of the age of
twentyoue years,. residing in the dis
trict and- liabfe to pay a school tax
thereinr shall be entitled to vote at
the" meeting." Then by "every In-
habitant;.' we infer women is Inclu
ded, and by "liable to pay a school
tax therein' we conclude that none
others are mcant The voter must
possess these qualifications :-
1st. Bo twenty-one years of age.
2d. Reside in the school district.
3d. Liable- to pay a school tax
. And none can legally vote unless
they are thus qualified. "M1
"Wo attended by invitation the clo-
VfciD' exercises of the' District School
at London, at was nei in- me vnns-
Uln Church. The building,- though
large, was crowded to its- utmost ca
pacity. A printed programme was
distributed through the room- by the
teacher. The exercises consisted In
an cpeningrrayer by Deacon "Winters,
and music, essays, dialogues and dec
lamations by the scholars. It warmed
up our hearts and sympathies to sec
riitiJrcu' and older' ones
strivinc to overcome timidity, awk
wardncss and bashfulnes3 by their" ef-
fi-.rts to appear before the public In
characters of men and women, and
-nerfarm mrts which require much
practice and experience to do well.
Their efforts were rcal.'w creditable,
Considering their opportunity, dly& we
are glad to know that they have thC
beit wishes and rich experienco of
every man and woman In the whole
ne5ghborhood to aid them in their
youthful discipline of the mind, body
and soul. Young ladies and geutlemen
so instructed can not fail to mate use
ful members in society. Closing re
marks were made by DeForest Porter,

The Legislature of Nebraska Was
very knowingly informed by several
scientific but very discnterested gentle
tlemen last winter, that the salt ba
sins near the capital were of but little
value, and that the water contained
but a small amount of salt, and that
the State ought to give away many
sections of very valuable lands as an
inducement to capitalists to sink wells,
&c, and ascertain if paying salt water
could be obtained within a thousand
feet of the surface. Upon such terms
a host of cormorants were willing to
take leases upon portions of the basin,
running for thirty years arid upwards.
All of these schemers had their friends,
and advocators In both Houses, but
not a sufficient number to suspend
the rules and pass their acta out of the
general course of business. So failure
was the consequence. Mr, Tichner,;
the first lessee obtained a lease with
out asking aid to develop, and we are
now informed that tuS S wrks are
ery valuable, a fact which was well
knowrr af tncrffore by 1J whv ted. in

We have Inserted an article on the
first page headed tobacco, accompanied !
by a kind letter to George from a dis- j
tinguished clergyman In "New - York. J
We found tliese articles in tlie Little
Corpemf, and liked theirr so'welX we
thought best to introduce them to our '.
young readers. We wish every boy
and' young man in Nebraska, w-ould
read them, and ponder the subject over
well. We wish that the reading there
of would produce in their minds tho
same abhorance of the disgusting use
of tobacco, that every truly refined
lady and gentleman feels on observing
a youn g man addicted to the' ike4 fjf to
bacco f any fotm. It is astonishing
how bo Useless and so filthy a habit
should become so general. Boys long
to be men, and soirie more impatient
of their swadling cloths than others,
jump Into full fruition of the bad hab
its . of the . father or older brothers,
thinking , this alone hastens their
standing as men of the world. We
implore every young man to take the
advice of those who are slaves to this
nauseating habit, and forever discard
the use of tobacco. Be pure In habits,
thoughts nnd deeds, and you will win
the confidence and approbation of all
whoso good opinions are worthy of
respect in after years. We are fond
of good boys, and will go far and do
much to aid and encourage them in
climbing slowly up to afhuence and
influential positions in life. Head the
article again and resolve never to use
tobacco. Remember that one bad
habit begets another, and when once
on the road the end is, at least, dan
The Nebraska City papers contain
an account of the murder of Itichard
Hill, the engineer of the Ferry Boat,
by Wm. Beboufcfthe acting pilot. The
boat was tied up on the Iowa side for
the night. A man on horseback
wished to be ferried over. Hill ordered
the firing up ready for the trip: Be-
bout replied that the fireman could
not do so unless over his dead body
A few words followed from Hill, when
Bebout drew a revolver and shot at
Hill without effect. He shot off, a
second barrel which took effect near
the right nipple, and a third shot fol
lowed, hitting Bebout near the same
place. Hill then pushed Bebout into
the river, and then, on making a few
steps, said ho was dying. He was
dead before they reached the house.
Bebout got into a skiff and went down
the river; parties pursuing him, cap
tured him, and we learn that he is
now In the Sidney jail, Iowa.
