then?.' Why, if this talk amounts to
anything, it means, as Mr. Thorton
said, Wail I.Ir. Sumner gays Eng
land enouid be expected to admit that
the recognition w3 unlawful. Ko-
body knows better than Mr.- Sumner
that that is the very thirftr Encland
will not do. The talk which Sumner
indulges in shows very clearly that
the American, government does not
wish the cuot.t.on settled forthwith.
It is useful in the business of home
politics, and It is regarded as a conve
nient Bcrew for pressing a good, bar
gain with BriUan in ether ways.
Very few ia-the Status, - except
among the more ignorant Fenians and
more rabid and reckless politicians,
dream at this moment of making the
Alabama dispute the occasion for war.
Notwithstanding all their swagger,
the Americans have clear- ideas , of
what is involved in such an eventual
ity, and they have no inclination ' to
run the risk. Whenever a hard -bargain
has had to be driven; this, how
ever, has been their cue, and they are
now reckoning upon the iguoraoce
and squeezability of British statesmen
as in former times, for securing a good
deal, at any rate, of what they want.
In this we believe they are mistaken.
Formerly they, were contented with
large slices cf , territory, . more than
were justly due. The ignorance : of
Diplomatists made this easy. .'Now,
perhaps, crown bold by success, they
drelm of taking all North America as
a peace cfToring, and imagine that all
that Is necessary to this is to kick and
swegger, as in the case of the Maine
boundary and the thing will be done.
Like the soldier that drew his sword
and threatened dreadful things if he
did not get a pair of boots at his own
price, tney would be ine readiest, after
getting what they wished, to reply to
tne inquiry about what they would
have done, supposing they would have
been refused, "Done! Whyl what
could we have done ! Done without,
to be sure!" Exactly, and that will
be found to be the. upshot of the whole
ofl'air. "When the Americans have
discovered that they cannot secure
anything by bullying, they will eith
er forget the Alabama altogether, or
will agree to some equitable method
of settling the claims.
The Montreal Gazette, the Crown
organ, thus defends British recogni
tion of the belligerency of the rebels:
If this be "the head and foot of the
(English) offending," the United
States Government was just as great
a sinner. And why? Let us suppose
that England had not conceded bel
ligerent rights to the South, what
would have been the consequence ac
cording to all the writers on interna
tional law? Only this, that as soon
as the Sumpter, the Nashville and the
other earlier Confederate cruisers ar
rived in England after burning, the
Brilliant and other Northern mer
chant vessels, their officers and crew
having no recognized status, would
have been subject to the law and
amenable to trial and execution as
pirates, although, too, they were . ex
ercising their recognized belligerent
right to make reprisals. England
very properly refused to act as hang
man for the American Government,
and when the same question came up
lor trial ana disposal m tne united
States covrta. in the memorable case
of the Confederate crew seized, almost
reduanded.ou Charleston harbor, that
Government abated its previous pre
tensions, and ended by adopting a
similar course. In other words, the
crew in question was tried and sen
tenced to death for piracy ; but a little
reflection showed Government that it
would be unwise and unnatural to
carry out the sentence, and, in the
end, the "pirates" were exchanged as
regular prisoners of war. What dif
ference was there, after all, in the po
sition assumed by both Governments?
England called and treated the South
erners as belligerents. The North
went still further, and by exchanging
prisoners, gave them the legal status
and the recognized position of what
England all along refused to give, not
withstanding the representations of
Franc an independent Power.
' Referring to Mr. Sumner's elabora
tion of .the fact that British policy
protracted and greatly Increased the
cost of the war, the Gazette says : . ':. 1
It is now rather late in the day to,
cry and whine about it, especially
when the reparation eoarragantly in
sisted upon, will probably have to be
purchased, if England only possesses
a portion of her former spirit, at a cost
of life and treasures far greater than
that poured out in the last American

If those old wires .could have re

could talk over the past, when, stored

venient disguise. "" '
It will be said that the laws areso nu
merons, so intricate and volumnlous,
that the people will not read and cannot
understand them. If that is true and
we judge that it may be in Illinois,
when about two thousand bills were
passed at the last session alone I is it
not .the more clear that the people
must look upon this business. as a
gigantic farce ? What i3 the sense of
getting up laws so numerous, and in
tricate that nobody, can keep track of
them except by devoting his whole
lifetime to that task ? If the whole
people were lawyers by profession If
a Legislature of lawyers were making
laws for the government of a cammu
nity of lawyers then there might be
some reason for giving them a plenty
to do. But a community of lawyers
would starve. Somebody must raise
food for 'these legal gentlemen to eat,
and make money to pay the sums
necessary to support the aforesaid
legal gentlemen in the making and the
study of the laws. And as for the
farmer, who is expected to- obey the
laws and to pay all the taxes which
they may require, even when he can
never get at the acts themselves and
can find out what they are only by
consulting some lawyer he raises
the food, makes the money, pays the
bulk of taxes, and that is his share in
the operation ! If his representative
goes to Springfield and votes away
taxes enough to enrich a dozen rail
road corporations, the farmer must
pay all the same, and if he wants to
know how it was done must consult a
lawyer to see the law.
Of course, this is lauerhaoie out nas
It not a serious side ? The plain truth
Is that we have unworthy and incom
petent legislators, in part because the
people who elect them have no means
of judzeing whteher they do well or
not. The crying necessity oi the age
Is to have fewer laws, and to have
these' publahed so - that all men can
read them and know who voted for
them. "The world is governed too
much," and that part of the world
known as the State of Illinois, with
its two thousand new laws at a session,
Is so much governed that its govern
ment is little better than robbery. Mis
souri is not by any means perfect, but
we can boast that our government has
not become proficient in the art of legis
lating money out of the pockets of the
people into privnts purses. We have
too many laws, and they are not pub
lished, but our Legislature has never
risen to the indignity of two thousand
enactments a year. But with differ
ences In degree, there is the same great
want in almost all th? States ; we need
more direct responsibility of legislators
to constituents, and publication of all
laws, and we may then hope to have
very fewer laws to publish. St. Louis

t Drowned. On the evening of the
17th inst. about dark, James Cameron,
Esq., of Humboldt, this County, was
accidently drowned while attempting
to bathe In the Nemaha, a short dis

J Mr Cameron had been unwell for
some time previous, and had manifes

purpose, and being very weak and the

he lost his balance while in the deep
water. He had left the house unknown

Cloui and twelve miles south o Ne-
bra :':a : thence west to the Little Blue:
thenco up that river to the" mouth of
Jay cn c!r; thence up to the head of
this ere : thence north to Rose creek.
up fhich we traveled until we reach
ed ': the- sixth - principal meredhn :
thence to the headof the South Brand
of the Little Blue; thence on to Salt
creek and Elk creek, down which we
went until we reached the Republi
can; thence up the Republican- to
Lake Sibley, where we rested from
our travels, in Cloud county; Kansas.
Thi3 county 13 situated directly west
of Atchison 120 mile3, and the sixth
principal meridian bounds the county,
on the east, and 2i miies south of the
Kansas and Nebraska line brings you
to the north line of tho county.
The Republican river runs through
it from east to west, about 1 miles,
when it turns north and runs across
the north line, within six miles of the
western line, and among its many
tributaries are Elk creek, Pony creek,
Salt creek, Camp ereek, - Cheyenne
creek, Buffalo creek, Dry creek, Oak
creek. Plumb creek and Elm creek.
All these ' tributaries . aubrd3. tunple
drainage to the country, and nourish
ing along their shores, forests of oak,
walnut, f sbr, elm, locust, mulberry,
hickory and other varieties of useful
and ornamental wood, which are an
nually increasing as the fires are sup
pressed. Coal of an excellent quality. Is also
in abundance. Veins from the crop
pings show two and three feet,
and doubtless gradually become thick
er as they extend mto the the bluffs.
When I came out here I thought
that I would secure a coal bank, but I
found it so plentiful that I changed
my mind to that of a piece-of farming
land without a riding switch, when at
the same time I could have had tim
bered land, but not without getting
more or less waste land.
It is my opinion that there is strat
ums of coal underlying this whole
country, save the river valiies, and
that too of a good quality. There is
five or six different places where the
coal crops out and shows for Itself, and
these are all the discoveries that have
yet been made. No attempt has been
made to make further discoveries, as
there Is now plenty found to furnish
fuel for tho next two generations. The
State Geologist is of the opinion that
there Is Bevefl'stratas of coal under
thi3 whole country.
"Water is In abundance, and that of
the best quality. Salt springs and salt
marshes are numerous, affording salt
for the millions of cattle that will in
the future graze on these beautiful
and rich prairies.
Timber is of ordinary quality, such
as is found on the tributaries of the
Missouri river, and can be taken up
or bought at from ten to twenty-five
dollars per acre; posts can be bought
for three cents, rails three and a half,
and there is no sale for fire-wood ;
coal can be had for the trouble of dig
ging, and hauling. .
Thi3, as a farming country, -.is equal
to any in the west, save that of corn
raising, when the drouth occasionly
comes, andthen it Is very scarce.
The last year was the greatest
drouth that ever visited this country,
and from the most reliable in formation
that I can gather, crops yielded as well
here as any where west of the Mis
souri river,, when properly tended,
save the Missouri bottom.
rThe average crop of wheat was 17
bushels to the acre ; corn varied from
nothing to 30 busihels ; oat3, and in
fact all small grain does well here,
much better than many other places ;
and in cander, my opinion is about
this,- give this country an equal chance
in proper cultivation, and taking all
crops together, it will produce more
than the Missouri river vallics, taking
any one county. ; '
You will at once ak the question:
Why did I hear that the people out
west were suffering for food? Well I
will tell you : :.Take Nemaha countv
for an example : first deprive one-half
of the fanners from farming, and the
other half, allow them ten or fifteen
acres only to tend, and then imagine
how much of a surplus you would
have, having nothing of old crops left.
' ;Would you believe me, should I tell
you that farmers have raised corn to
sell,andeven sold corn last year.- It is
a fact, and my honest cpinion i5, that
those who are industrious will always
raise enough any year to support
them'. But the worst cause of the
drowth'wsi this: Tho majority of
the settlers here i3 of a class that will
not work, and to make a living they
take claims and 6e!l them. . They
probably "have & little garden spot
which, they half tend, and then cry
for aid. , God forbid that I should do
anyone injuitice, but this aid is the
greatest curse of the two, the Jrowth
or aid. Friends, I know you thought
that you were doing a christain act,
and I hope you will be rewarded for it,
but it only works a cures to the people
whom you aimed to '-assist. And
now Tam confident that if they whi
use proper industry they can obtain
all the aid necessary to support life:' '
I will cite you to a farmer of this
county, a Mr. Coplen, who raised seed
corn to sell, and sold it to a new com
er, whoso house . I am now winter
Give us enterprising farmers and I
will assure you that aid would be an
insult to them.' And good Lord tie
liver us from settlers who come here
loookiner for aid from abroad. And
just here Ut me say in honor to indus
try, tnat only pare or the sctuers re
ceived aid, and somecf them, I was
told by good authority, sold the same.
But before another call will ber made
for aid, I hope to see this country set
tled up by settlers of enterprise. , - - :
Fruit will do well here, Judging
from what I have been told of wild
fruit, grapes especially. . But the par
ticulars I Will wait until fall for,
when I will be an eye Avitness to the
: There is no better stock country in
connection with good fanning lands.
Notwithstanding the slurs of B
drowtht I will cive you a fow facts I I
have been lold by honorable men that
they only know of one cow-brute that
died last winter or this spring, and
that got drowned. Oie man had thirty-five
head of cattle, and wintered
ed them on. twelve taaof hay; no
corn or auy other substance save v.'hzt
they. got themselves on tho prairi:..
Can you believe .that; and. I will
venture to say there ia not a-bette
looking lot of stoei cattle in the west;
this to without sheds. , . .... s '; . .
A Mr. C. Lavb wintered nincty
, three head of cattle. ' Las.t fall ho put
up twenty tuns of prairie hay, 'and
now the feeding season has been over
some two or three weeks, and he has
hay left. r He lost one cow-bruta' by
getting drowned. '''.. 1
. Horses and mules run at lar-e "all
lart winter and got their own living,
and when I arrived here they looked
as welljis my horses .did stablad all
winter with plenty of corn and hay. '
Now,' the above are not isolated ca
ses, but a general thing; all over this
country.!; The cost cf wintering a
brute here one year is about one tun
of hay and the necessary trouble of
seeing to it, and probably you "will
not feed one-half cr that. Is this not
good enough a country.. .
Now, I have only one objection to
thl3 country, that is, it is not settled
up with enterprising farmers, though
I expect to see it settled up with iust
such men, and that very soon, when
I will be perfectly satisfied, knowing
or no better iocahty lor health, farm
ing, mild and pleasant winters, varie
ties of fruits, and a country that never
has nor never will aliortl a muddy
road ; mud is a perfect stranger here
. Thi.s countv is now about fortv-five
miles from the terminus of the Cen
tral Branch of the Union Pacific Rail
road, destined to run through thi3
county, and junction "city is about
fifty miles distance, situated on the
Southern Pacific Railroad. A road is
also surveyed from the junction up
the Republican river, through, this

They, are now putting up a. flouring
mill and other public improvements.
With reference to soliciting emigra
tion to this county. I only have this
to say : I advise all to come and loo:-
at the country first, and look a3 I did.
at other portions of the country, and
then judge for yourselves. You need
not come here expecting to find large
churches in small towns, nor the la
test fashions or dress, isut 11 you
come, come expecting to find a coun
try about as-nature formed it, with
some improvements, occasionally a
farm of one hundred acres and geaer
ally less. When you come, stop and
look around and vou will probably
find men who are trying to hold four
or five claims to sell you, but dout be
in a hurry, go to some man who is
trying to make a living by industry,
and council with him. But these
claim suckers, let them, alone, they
are a curse to any country, and we are
too well supplied ; remove them and
in their stead put home seekers, and
we will then have as fine a country as
is west of the Missouri river.
Now my friends you have my opin
ion or tnis country, partially, ana 1
would be happy to have as many
come out and settle here as would be
satisfied to do so ; but hope none will
come and settle without first coming
to look. . L know that people are
strange beings, and : have various
ideas, mostly governed more by prej
udices than judgment.. .Should you
come out and like our country we
will welcome you ; should you not
like, we can only hope you may-be
suited elsewhere. We are not afraid
of this country not settling, but want
to see it settle as fast as possible with
permanent settlers. ( '
Well, settlers, tell me that there has
not been any savage Indians east of
Lake Sibley for seven years, though
above there they occasionally run in
a scouting party of Indians, and have
killed and stolen more or less, but I
am honest in the expression,, that that
day is over. If General Sheridan re
dians bothering-any one; but should
tains command 1 have no fears of in
we be cursed with post holders, I do
not know but what the Indians might
bothersome, such as running off stock
and occasionally killing a settler. But
the settlements are becoming too
strong here to admit of Indian depre
dations In the future. -;
The State intends to station three
companies out beyond the fronties.to
protect . the Indians from stealing.
They are to be stationed at the follow
ing places: One company at White
Rock ; one company on Solomon;
one company on the Saline.that being
done, and Pail. Sheridan in command

perfectly safe hero. -I

to make the school a fountain of true
education, hence we have net asked
any person whether it pleased thi3 or
that one, but have endeavored to
teach thoroughly and correctly.- Our
object has not been to plea?e but to
make a good thorough school, and
how far we have succeeded in this we
leave the public to judge. We aro
aware that all are not pleased, we ex
pected that, thu3 it has ever been and
ever will be, teachers have their faults
and are liable to err; we would not
plead perfection for any one, but to
please every one and conduct a good
school is simply impossible, and th'3
we apprehend is not tho question, but
is the school subserving it3 end and
design that is the question, not wheth
er this scholar or that patron is pleas
ed or displeased.' We have no right
to look at men in any of our , public
offices or institutions, wo are not to
do thi3or that to pleaso any particu
lar person (although there are those
who honestly think the whole machi
nery of society would go to rack, and
ruin did they not have a hand In it,)
but our aim must ever bo for the best,
independent of men.
We therefore earnestly hope the
Board of Education will so conduct
the Normol School that it will mal
good, thorough, self-reliant teachers,
whether it pleases or di5pleas.es. A3
we have said we believe a bright . f;

Editors yttrasTia Gazttte: In tiler '
Nebraska City Morning Chronicle of
AprilSth,! notice an article asking
of me an explanation in relation to
the late treaty made with the Otoe In-
dians. In reply to which I would beir
leave to state, that the Government is
wholly responsible for the stipula
tions of said treaty, the provisions of
which were as follows:
The railroad company were to take
these iand3 of the Indians by paying;
the Government one dollar ana twenty-five
cents per acre; cue sixth of
said sum to be pain In cash, on confir
mation of the treaty, and the balance '
to be paid in five years, in annual in--stailmentr'f
in government liouds, witht -
live percent, interest frorti date, which ,
was to be a permanent loan for the'
Otoes. In addition to this, the railroad '
company was to pay for the surveyin;? .
of said lands, and pay one thousand ?
dollars for traveling expenses to and .
from Washington. -.
They were further obliirated to build
40 miles of railroad within five years,
and to pay the Indians for all the 1m-
firovements they had made. And ths ,
irovernment agreed to ell to the In
dians lands in tho Cherokee nation at
SO Cents per aero if they took choico
lands, and lo ccnt3 per acre if they -went
further west. The Indians also
reserved ten miles square of their
present possessions, until they moved
south, and they were not to move un
less they found a home to suit them.
At the time this treaty was made.
five of the six chiefs were present
tvruquito aione lacing absent, lie was
sent for twice, in order to havo him
present, and the entire tribe was fairly
Col. Dcnman and Col. Murrhv ex
plained everything in relation to tho
conditions of this treaty, and represen
ted each preposition in a fair and im
partial manner, and to the entire sat
isfaction of the whole tribe. Nor is It
true that the Indiana are dissatisfied
with the treaty, but. on the contrary.
they are very much displeased to kar-
that the treaty Was not confirmed.
1 will say, in conclusion, that If
there Is any "swindle" in thb matter, !
it uoes not fail "upon the Indians.
They Were disposlhguf their lands at
