THE NEMAHA LAND DISTRICT Is
composed of six township vide from tho
Kansas line, north, running back to the State
boundary on the west including over 100
miles on the Republican river and liounded
on the north by the Otoe District. The most
settled counties are Nemaha, Richardson,
Pawnee, Johnson, Gage, Jefferson, Saline and
Jones, although more land west is surveyed.
Thi? Is undoubtedly the best watered region
of Nebraska, and consequently will soon Ijc, if
.not already, thebest timbered. Commencing
at the wotst we find in
JONES, Roso Creek, with its numerous
tributaries, running through the southern
townsh ips and emptying into the Little Blue
which enters the eourfty on the west 12 miles
from the Kansasllne.receiviiignearitswest
ern boundary the Big and Little Sandys, and
passing diagonally through the county, en
ters Kansas through the southern townships.
There are several heavy fettlements along
these Pt reams, and some first class mills In
SALINE, north of Jon e:, but two town
ships are in this District, vdilch are watered
by the South and North Forks of Turkey
Creek, the later of which through the county
from the northwest tothe southeast.
GAGE, east of Jones and Saline, and ?A
miles wide, is watered from the northwest to
the southeast corner by the Big Blue, which
receives Austin, CamU-eJl, Wild Cat and
seven'teen other creeks within the county,
and the two Turkey Creeks of Saline. The
Dig Blue Is a noble stream and is capable of
running a great deal of machinery; several
first class mills are already run by it. The
JaiM along this and Its tributaries Is general
ly weir timbered. This 'county contains a
population of about SofiO, which is rapidly in
creasing. A very fine quality of sandstone
excellent for building purposes, has been dis
covered in abundance In this county.
PAWNEE, southeast of Gage, has water
ing Its western townships Kignett's Elm and
several other creeks. Turkey Creek flows
from north to south through the centre of the
county, fed by numerous tributaries, which
water nearly every section in the county.
The Northfork of the Great. Nemalta passes
through the northeastern and the Southfork
of the same stream waters the southeastern
portion of the county. Tho larger of these
st reams are well timber, and, as the fire Is kept
out, young timber is growitigoit the smaller.
Several paying veins of Stone Coal have been
discovered In this county, two of which arc
being worked to advantage. Thc population
of the county Is nearly 5000.
JOHNSON, north of Pawnee, has, passing
through from northwest to southeast, the
Northfork of the Great Nemaha. Turkey
Creek heads in the southern townships;
Yankee Creek passing from the western side
of the county empties into then Northfork of
tho .Great Nemaha near the centre of 'the
county, TheSouthfoik of thcLittle Nemaha
passes in and out again on thc north. Long
Branch has its source in tills county. The
larger of thefie streams are well timbered.
Two veins of Stone Coal have been discover
ed in t"iis county, one of which Is being ope
rated to very good advantage. The popula
lion Is about
RICHARDSON, east pf Tawnee, lias the
Missouri river for its eastern boundary. The
Sout'iibik of the Great Nemaha and the
Northfork of the same enter this county, one
in the southwest corner township thc other
In the central western township, passing to
the centre join and form the Great Nemaha,
the largest stream in Southern Nebraska.
Long Branch enters this county at the north
west corner and Big Muddy enters it on the
north, lwth empty into tho Great Nctrvha.
This is undoubtedly the best waterc.Mtnd
timbered county In Southern Nebraska. It
has already considerable mill machinery on
I lie larger of these streams and many good
privileges yet unoccupied. It has a popula
tion of over ft.OO'J.
NEMAHA, North of Richardson, is bound
ed on the east by the Missouri river. Its prin
cipal stream is the Little Nemaha, entering
at the northwest corner it flows diagonally
through the county, emptying Into the Mis
souri in the southeast corner township. Long
Branch Hows through the southwest corner,
southwest of which still are thc two Muddys.
Besides these there are Innumerable creeks
and rivulets, which ramify through and wa
ter nearly every section in It. The Little
Nemaha affords as good waer power as there
is in the west, and is already exten.flvely oc
cupied. Tlds county has a population of
These counties comprise as fertile a section
of country as can be found In the west, and
its Inducements to the industrious farmer or
mechanic cannot be excelled. Homesteads
can yet be had in tho western counties. The
situat ion of tho land and water in tiiis I Ustvlct
make it an oxeellnnt. stock raising country.
The recent enactment of the Legislature pro
tecting and encouraging the growth of timber
lias caused the planting out of at least one
million forest trees in this District. Fruit
has been demonstrated to be a perfect success
in Southern Nebraska, and it will supply it
self in fruit within three years. Five hun
dred dollars wort it of Sheep are exempt by
law from taxation, which, together with a
favorable climate, makes sheep raising very
profitable. In railroads the region described
is bound to be peculiarly favored, for all rail
roads from the south, or southeast, aiming to
connect with the Great Union Pacific Rail
road at or near the 100th meridian must pass
through it, so that not a county In it but will
eventually have one road, and some even two
or more, and as a consequence t hero will be
good inland and river towns.
A correspondent of thcNew York
Tribune, in ullmling to the naming of
the junction town on the l'acilie
Railroad, which question is now be
ing vigorohsly discussed suggests
that "if we cannot give the jnuetion
pome grand old Indian name, why
not give it an original American one?
J suggest 'Gold Spike,' or if more up
honious, Golden Spike,' or for short
ness, 'Spike.7 1 am not aware that ei-
ther name has been given to
town in the world. But as the
cletion of a great railroad cro:
and connecting the Atlantic with the
Pacific oceans is an event new in this
world's histbyr. let us have a new
name, which shall be expressive, to
designate the epot where the great
work was finished. .

Dark clouds hung over Jerusalem,
shrouding its magnificent temple in
gloom. Dark clouds hung over the

Ruin hung over that fated -city.
Ruin hung over that doomed people.
What is magnificence of temples to

Pilate filled the judgement seat that
gloomy morning. Around him stood
a band of Roman rtiLdiers ; the fierce
expression of their faces ; their un
couth manner told .of the cruelty of
their nature. In loud tones the infu
riated multitude called for a malafac

as wad the custom of the Jews on cer
Hypocritical Pharasees, with frown
ing brows; canting Sadduees, with
sneering smiles were there. Indolent
men who spent their time in vain con
versation and idle curiosity,were there.
And yet another one was there in
striking contrast to those who filled
the judgment hall. The form was
faultless, and majesty sat enthroned
upon the serene brow. A smile of
heaven was around the intellectual
mouth. The eyes were large, dark
ami thoughtful. The sad expression
of that beautiful face told that he was
a "man of sorrows and acquainted
Pilate lifted his eyes to this lovely
being and met a look f ull of innocence,
purity and love. The searching eye
rilled him with a strange confusion.
Turning hastily away in hurried
tones, he said : Will you, that I get
this man? Go and release unto you
Bnrrabas, the robber? But they cried
out, give us this man who spake
against. Cesar. Away with him ; cru
cify him ; crucify him. Pilate was
troubled, and said : I see no fault in
him ; 1 am clear of this man's blood ;
do with him what you
hastily left the judgment hall.
The stranger looked upon the mul
titude, but exquisite richness of
thought and refinement of affection
were lost upon those dark minds and
hard hearts. They plaitted thorns in
to a crown and placed it upon his
head; the sharp points pierced his
temples, and blood ran down his face
With 'rude hands they put upon him
a purple robe, and sneeringly said :
Thou wouldst be King of the Jews.
Jesus was beautiful. When a lovely
infant w he slept his angel sleep on
Mary's bosom. He was clothed in
dignity. When a child of twelve
summers, he confronted the learned
doctors in the temple of the Jews. In
majesty he moved among the poor
ami ignorant, doing good unto all.
But now submitting to indignities
from blinded Jews, there was a con
fluence of all the graces which made
up the surpassing loveliness of his
character. He lifted his eyes to
heaven, and in a voice sweeter than
music over the waters, said, "Father,
forgive them, they know not what
they do." Then "they said, "Hail,
King of the Jews."
Heaven was draped in unusual
splendor. The King, in his beauty,
sat upon the great white throne. The
banner over him was love; holiness
was inscribed upon his seeptre. The
river of life, clear crystal, made en
rapturing music. On its banks grew
trees .which never cast their leaf and
flowers which never fade. . The radi
enceofthe immortal onelighted upthis
blissful habitation of purity and love.
It needed not the light of the sun,
yet innumerable orbs of light gemed
the azure canopy; immortality va3
written on the gates of pearl. On the
golden floors was inscribed, "Children
of earth, behold your home," when
vour spirits are refined and purified,
by love to God ; aud ye keep his com
mandments, and when ye test this
love by keeping the new command
ment, "Love one another."
Away' ofi in the blue depths was
seen a glorious being, accompanied by
an innumerable company of angels
the purified ones of earth, with white
robes and glittering crowns. Seraphs
harps were turned to heavenly melo
dy as the bright bejng approached,
and stood before the throne. ' The
voice of the Eternal said, "Welcome
my beloved Son ; elder brother of my
children on earth. Thou hast finished

umphed when passing through the
temptation; thou hast revealed the
Father to men; thou hast brought
life and immortality to light in thy
gospel to them. Welcome! Sit thou on
my right hand. Arch-angels placed
upon his radiant form a robe, woven
as it were, of the beams of the morn
ing. ' Upon his head they placed a
crown more resplendaut than the
starry coronet which encircles the
the brow of night. Then all the hosts
of heaven sang out: "Hail, King of
Kings and Lord of Lords."

For the Advertiser.
Hillsdale, June 21, 1SG9.
While the subject of School: and
Teachers is being discussed through
the columns of the Advertiser. I will
endeavor to contribute my share to
the general fund.
I have frequently inquired why a
genuine live educational paper would
not be a good enterprise in Nebraska,
and I have as yet failed to get any def
inite answer. One thing I do know.
the States around us have them, and
although the manner in which they
are conducted is by some considered
objectionable, yet they are far better
than none, and might be made not
only very valuable to teachers
aud friends of education, but profitable
to the publisher. But enough on that
subject, for we have the Advertiser,
which is alive te every thing that is
calculated to advance our country
ami its people socially morally intel
lectually or financially; and with
your permission, Mr. Editor, we will
use it frequently.
But the question of the qualification
of teachers is what I set out to write
on, and it is one in which there is a
diversity of opinion, but yet there are
many traits and characteristics which
all agree that the teacher ought to pos
sess to make him efficient.
I will merely mention a few of these,
viz: Discretion, modesty, dignity,
humanity, patience, temperance and
a spotless reputation. That he should
have the necessary education and a
large fund of general information, is of
But then there are other traits that
arc quite necessary which are very of
ten overlooked by even teachers them
selves. Among tfiese I will mention,
affability, couiage, assurance and con
Affability, called also suavity, ur
banity, courtcousness, etc., is the trait
tlist enables us to forget differences of
position and opinion, and treat all as
they deserve, cowering to none, treat
ing none with disdain. Jt is the
source of success to all public men,
and is the power by which men 'move
the world.' Gain a man's confidence,
and you can easily bring him to think
as you do, but treat him with con
tempt and he will not agree with you,
though convinced yon are right ; and
girls and boys are men an.d women in
Courage is a strong "point where an
influence is to lie exerted, and it must
be of that dignified kind, that while
it awes, does not cause hatred but admi
ration. The fiercest men are Influ
enced by this, while the man of poble
character beholds it with intense de
light.' The petty mind cowers at this
courage, and knows his vile tongue
can never stain that man's character.
. Assurance is to the teacher, what
the ballast is to the ship, keeping him
steady on his course, and enabling
him to show in all things that he is
not "out of his sphere," but that "he
knows whereof he speaks," and that
he is not trusting to the knowledge of
some one else to guide him.
By assurance, I do not mean that
egotism which leads men to think
themselves infalliable, and conse
quently neglect to inform themselves
in the new and important theories
that are continually being disclosed

The teacher who has in view the
design of teaching as a permanent oc
cupation, is far preferable to any one
who is only teaching for the "time be
ing," and'inteuding to pursue some
other occupation us soon ns a favorable
opportunity presents itself.
The permanent teacher is not only
interested in making himself a repu
tation, but in all reforms in education
al matters, such as the introduction of
a proper and . permanent series of
school, books, the improvement--of
school room furniture and 'apparatus,
and in fact everything that renders
the labors of the teacher more pleas
ant and successful as well as the ad
vancement of the pupils more speedy
His reputation a.s a teacher depends
on his exertions in his vocation, and
the success attendant upon them, and
he will therefore be careful to not mis
apply them, but make them constant
and efficient; while the individual
who engages in teaching with a view
to teaching a year or two while he is
"waiting for something to tarn up,"
will not make any effort to keep him
self "posted," nor will he be so care
ful about preserving his reputation
unsullied, for if he is seen at the so
loon or in objectionable company, it
not a matter of so much importance to
With these suggestions T will close
my already too long communication,
with the promise of another at some
not very distant day, on the subject of
the "Duties and Responsibilities of
Teachers,'? in which I will speak of
their duties : 1st, to themselves; 2d, to
their employers; :d, to their pupils,
and 4th, to their fellow teachers.
This' will probably be followed by
some suggestions relative to the duties
of school officers, and those having
charge of the youth in the west.
Another Large Arrival of Chi
Special Correspondence Mo. Democrat. .
San Fkaxcisco, June 18, 1869
No less than 1254 Chinamen arrived
yesterday, the 17th June, by three
sailing vessels. The Miners' Union
of Virginia City and Gold Hill, have
called a meeting of "white workmen
to assemble on the Gth of July, to dis
cuss the great crisis now being forced
upon us by the sordid selfishness of
the money kings." Their address to
their fellow laborers ended thus: "We
appeal to the working men to step to
the. front and hurl back the tidetf
barbarous invaders." I fear there is a
rougher time than ever in store for
"John Chinaman." In the mines, of
old, he was stoned, shot, robbed, hi
gold "taxed" three or four times a
month by those who did not come
with anv more government authority
than a large sheet of paper or parch
ment some hieroglyphics upon it
no more intelligible to the ignorant
ruffian who presented it, than it was
to "John" himself. Only the other
day one of our papers defended an
outrage committed by some voting
Californiaus on some Celestials. Our
journals, generally, defend a Chine.
immigration, and sneak up for the
persecuted Orientals. Looking arouui
among mvown friends, 1 find astrong
feeling in favor of them. Many of
my wine-growing and farmer ac
quaintances will not now employ
white labor when they can get it, be
cause they find it, by comparison, un
certain and unreliable. The white
man, here, will rarely work over
three or four months ; then he wants
to be off to the last mining "excite
ment." Chinamen do a considerable
part of our domestic labor here, even
that usually appointed to females.
The following anecdote, told me but
the other day by a lady friend, will
give some excuse for it. My friend
walked into the kitchen, and Was im
mediately addressed by her female
cook: "Are you going to use your
horses this evening?" "Yes, I am;
why?" "Oh, pshaw!" responded the
cook, "I meant to have gone out with
them myself!" The Biddy in ques
tion was receiving her -"i-3 (gold; a
month, and no doubt thought herself
fearfully ill-used when she could not
have the team at her own ti-me. My
friend said little or nothing, knowing
it to be useless, but secretly determined
to get rid of her impudent domestic
at the earliest opportunity. And yet
there is no State where they are treat
ed better, if they will only behave
A writer in our Alia California
speaks sensibly and truly of our new
visitors. "The men," says this cor
respondent, quoting the "words of a
French resident in Japan, "are dig
nified, well educated, exceedingly po
lite, brave and full of ingenuity, 'ilic
women have refined delicacy, very
pretty forms and features, and a very
winning address. They are scrupu
lously neat in their person and in
their house keeping. Their accom
plishments are quite up to our stand
ard. VThey are healthy, frugal, and
industrious, and verv affectionate. In
any of the refined circles of the capi
tals of h,urope we know a hundred
Japanese ladies that would command
their own choice or husoamls. Not
only is it their personal charms that
would be admired, but those would,
in the eye of matrimony, be indorsed
by the absence of the expensive hab
its that, in our own belles, interpose
so terrible an obstacle to marriage."
Alauame fechnell is a Japanose lady,
evidently of that class that inspired
the eloquent description we have quo
ted. If the introduction of new branches
of culture and industry, and utiliza
tion of lands hitherto neglected as of
listle value, be beneficial to California,
we may welcome tli is first colony
from Japan. They interfere with no
existing occupations. They are not

Canton, Mo., June 21, 1S0'.
Meters. Hawkins, BVyiVt, Moore and
"Gknts: Yours of this' date is to
hand, asking if a joint us of the
above named road could be guaranteed
to the proposed Quincy and Nebraska
road, for some twenty-five or thirty
miles. ' It would require a vote of tho
Board of Director-!, on the suhjior,
but I am sufficiently acquainted with
the views of a majority of them to
warrant me in saying there will be no
difficulty in making such arrange
ments, provided the point of diverg
ence be somewhere west of Canton ;
say near Monticello, at such Kint as
would be practicable.
The Boanl of Directors meet Wedn
esday, the 2.'d Inst., and I shall bring
the matter before them ; but, in tho.
absence of any action by them, I vouch
for a favorable vote, and authorize
you to act accordingly, for their views
are well known to me.
Whilst I should not like any fac
tious opposition to any road in our
county, I think it laudible and prop
er, and, indeed, our duty to use all
honorable means in trying to influ
ence the location.
1 think the interests of both La
Grange and Canton are deeply con
cerned in the location.
By using our track the distance you
propose, Quincy, LaG ran Ke, Canton,
and perhaps Monticello, Edina.
Kirksville and other points will bo
subserved. Quincy would retain her
local trade up the Fabius, and thc tw
latter points and those beyond, wouui
have cannection with the Mis.-,i.iiippi
river, at three important points. Tiio
enterprise would carry more strength
by uniting the interests of these
points. I cannot think any company
would run a road on the edge of tho
territory, parol lei to another road, for
a distance of nearly sixteen miles, at
not further than 'from four to six
miles; and even this calculation U
based on the supposition of a joint usa
of our track to LaGrange. .
Suppose, now, we make Quincy the
objective point, and grant that 5lon
ticelio is to be a point ; then, at Mon
ticello, the road would bo in three aud.
a half miles of our road, now build
ing. So, by building three and a half
miles, you save, in running to Quincy,
twenty-five miles, and all the town
in our county seeking its location,,
would be touched. If, therefore, said
Toad is to run any where north of tho
Fabius river, there is every induce
ment to take your pioposition.
