Wo lmvp .a Tnnr Tplter from' a friend
at Chillicothe, giving it ns his opinion
that many of the directors of the St.
Louis.Chillicothe and Omaha Railroad
eompauy were in favor of crossing
the river at Brownville; and' would,
'if the proper inducements were held
out by our people for the consideration
of the company.
In our recent trip over the Hanni
bal & St. Joseph Railroad, we noticed
they mado the whole length of the
line in eight hours, which is quicker
by . four hours than the time, on the
same road three years ago. The road
bed is in prime order, and their coach
es among the best in present use. This
is decidedly the best route to any
point either south or east from Ne
braska. Judge Morgan has gone to Quincy
to attend a meeting of the Board of
Directors of the Quincy, Missouri and
Tacifie Railroad company. The Judge
is very aggressive in his nature, and
drive at his point with a good deal of
directness and tenacity ; and our peo
ple will be well served by the Judge
as director in this company. He makes
a good Judge of Probate and Justice
of the Peace, and a good citizen ;
using the means derived from his
fUce in building up society educa
tionally and morrally. We are pleased
to support such men for positions of
honor and profit.
The Clarion of Beatrice informs us
that Judge Towle has finished and
moved in the new post office building.
The offlec is furnished with one hun

drawers. This is good evidence of
prosperity for a town seventy miles
from shore. Mr. Lepoindoin's large

Westley Dun das, of Douglas, and
many others from different parts of
the county, when in town this week
gave us encouraging reports as to crops
in their several localities. Wheat is
heavy, but a little rusty; Oats is ex
ceedingly heavy. Harvesting will
commence in a few fields this week,
, but will not bo at its full pressure un
til about the la?t of next week. Corn
is a little backward, but very promis'r

Mr. D. Y. Culbertson was in our
office this week, and he informs us
that the christian people of Glen Rock
precinct are building a church edifice
fpr the Regular Baptist Society, on
the corner of Dr. Phillips' farm, which
lias been secured for that purpose.
The building Is to be 34x46 on the
ground, and 16 feet high, to be built of
rine with Black Waluut finish. He
also says that the Methodist have a
subscription reaching near $2,000, for
the purpose of building a Methodist
Church In that precinct. We know
of three' School Houses in. that pre
cinct, used for school purposes and
religious services. This Is very ample
provision for a territory but six miles
square, and all in the country at that.
We hall have to; refer Mr. Wright to
facts in his own precinct; but, as he
does not take his county paper, we
ure not surprised at his ignorance.
Dr. Neal of Peru was in town this
week and informed us that since the
dissolution of Hawley & Tynan, that
Mr. Tynan 'has divided -his stock,
sending a' part to Table Rock under
the charge of W. G. Glasgow, the for
mer sherilT of this county. We pre
sume that this is only a temporary
arrangements so far as Mr. Glasgow is
concerned, as the people of Nemaha
county think they may need his ser
vices in the immediate future. So
long as he stay at his present post the
citizous of Pawnee county will find in
him a traiglit forward and fair man
to deal with.
We are also Informed that the town
of Teru is improving her appearance
by building, refitting and rearranging
residences nnt fences, among the
more prominent of which is Prof.
McKcnzic's new residence near the

time has prevented us from looking

We had the pleasure last week of
taking our first ride over a portion of
the North Missouri Railroad, from
Macon City up to Kirksville and back.
This road runs through a very beauti

Northern Missouri. Every acre of
land as far as the eye could stretch is
improved. Thriving villages are fre

prosperity of the surrounding country.
The road has.been completed to Kirks

fate of a country and it3 cities were it
not for the new blood infused into ev

by speedy, cheap and sure transporta

Commissioner A. J. Ritter came
up to this city and from here went
west to look at and prepare for the re

LETTER FROM GLEX ROCK.
Glkx Rock, July 5, 1S60. '
Mr. Editor : The Fourth of July reminds
ur of no Taxation without Representation.
Glen Rock is not represented, nor has been
consulted In the matter of K. H. ; but !s to be
privilagedto vote a pift of 271,000 to the com
panies that will build It. It. to the city of

property of no person shall be taken for pub

stated as a reason that the farmers payed
higher taxes to tlielr incora than other per

favored the Farmer that calfs ware not Taxed

all things, the Law says everything shall be
Taxed except Churches, School Houses, Li
braries' Hemeterrles, &c, which the citizens
have, but the farmers have none of these
tilings. Glen Rock is 12 miles from Brown
ville which we require to go and pay our
Taxes at a cost of 1,20 as Traveling foes from
which Brownville is exempt. There is 3 dol
lars of a Tax upon each Quarter Section as a
Road Tax which other property is exempt
from. Each Farmer requires or keeps a l)og

REMARKS BY THE EDITOR.
We print the above letter of Mr.
Wright, not that it In any measure
re8ect the views of the intelligent !
people of that rich and populous pre
cinct nor that we are under any ob
ligations to Mr. Wright, a?iie never
patronized us to the extent of a farth
ing; but as containing the only rea
sons we have as yet heard urged in
opposition to rendering aid to rail
roads in Nemaha County. These
FirdGlen Rock wus not repre
sented. Second Property should not be
taken for public use without just
com pi. niation.
Third PiVmew pay .higher taxes-
in proportion to their incomes than
.Fourff Brownville will be benefit
ed if the' road is built.' ,.
Fifth That the increased valuation
only benefits the speculator.
We reply : . j
1. Glen Rock assisted, in the el
ection of each one. ofx the commis
sioners, and so must admit that they
act as her representatives. But they
have done nothing thus far but to ask
the legal voters of'the'ebahty" the
questions: "shall we issue $230,000 in
bonds, due In twenty years ; and shall
we leavy a tax on your property each
year to pay the interest thereon at
eifrht per cent, per annum, and a tax
to pay tlie principal in' ten years after
1SS0." If the voters say noVno'thing
further can "be done. If they Bay yes
then when we get . the : road,' the
bonds will be'issued. So, Mr. Wright,
you see that nothing can be done by
your representatives without the con
sentof the people.
2. As no tax Is ' levied . without
the road is hrst built ; so you can
see that property for public use is not
taken until compensation is fully
made . : -" '-. ' '
3.- No property belonging to the
public is taxed. ' No property devoted
to scientific, benevolent and religious
societies, not used with a view to pe
cuniary profit, is taxed. All other
property should be, and most other
property is. Mr. Wright! says that
the farmers have no schools, churches
and semeteries and that the people
in the towns have, and thus are fa
voreu by way of taxation, wo are
truly sorry for Mr. Wright, if he is
compelled to live in so heathenish a
country as he states ; but we will ven
ture the assertion that there Is not
another farmer in Glen Rock precinct
that would admit that they deprive
themselves of these evidences of civ
ilization. We can point you to several
churches, and fine ones too, and to
school houses innumerable in the
country ; and as to semeteries, if there
are but few, it is because our general
health Is so good that our necessities
in this direction are not great. The
$3 road tax levied upon each quarter
section is a burden to the farmer, is it ?
Well, we happen to know' that when
the last Legislature sought to change
this as wrong in principal, every far
mer in that body opposed any change,
saying as it now stood 'the speculator,
whose quarter section was worth but
$500, paid as much road tax as the
farmer, whose property was worth as
many thousands, and from the fact
that the present law of $3 per quarter
section was a discrimination in favor
of the farmer it was permitted to
stand. As the law now standsj ani
mals' not two years old, wool" shorn
from sheep, all crops raised within the
year, and all farming improvements to
the value of $1,000, aro not taxable
We do not speak of these matters
complainingly, but simply to show
that the farmer, is not taxed more
than others. We are not taxed upon
our incomes, but upon .' the property
which the government protects in our
interests and for our comfort.
Mr. Wright complains because that
knowledge which the "Judge, Clerks,
Treasurers,' Teacher, Preacher,! Law
yer, Doctor, Agents, Superintendent,
Editors," &c, gain from reading the
county papers and from other similar
sources, is net taxed for the public
good. We have no comments to make
upon this topic. If Mr. Wright will
propose some plan by which the Gov
ernment can favor ignorance, we will
consider its provisions in some future
article. It might be well to offer a
premium in this direction. We would
like to enquire if Mr. Wright opposes
the School tax. A portion of tlie li
cense' of rum shops in cities goes for
general education in the county, and
the ballance to pay for the police reg
ulation; and we happen to know that
every dollar a city collects in license,
she is compelled to pay out two to
suppress the unlawful acts ofhoso
who drink the liquor thus sold.
4. If, after all, the ground work of
Mr. Wright's opposition is found to be
that Brownville may reap some ad
vantages, by the building of those
roads, then we lose time in consider
ing any of his objections, because we
could not if .we would, prove that
Brownville would not reap a portion
of the common benefits which tlie
county would receive if the roads
were finished. Neither are we so
narrow minded as to oppose the road
from the fact that it may run through
Brownville, Glen Rock, and Wash
ington precincts, or up the west bank
of the Missouri river." "We shall be
glad If the roads are built in and
through our couuty, without enquir
ing where. We know that the points
which secure depots will pay ' dear
enough for the privileges purchased.
5. The increased valuation benefits
the fanner, whether he wishes to sell
or keep hi3 farm. Why does it in
crease the value of his farm ?. Because
it increases the value of every bushel
of grain raised by cheapening the
transportation to market. . The farm
from which you can sell corn at 50
cents a bushel is worth more, and will
bring more ready cash, than the farm
by virtue of its distance from cheap
transportation whereon corn can be
sold for only forty cents. And this
difference of ten cents on every bushel
of .grain is the benefit every farmer
derives by the Increased valuation nf
his farm. Farms near New York
City axe more valuable, and will sell
for more to-day for fanning purposes,
than a like farm will near Brownville,
not that the one-third rental amounts
to more bushels of corn or wheat, but
because of the difference in value per
bushel of grain at the- two "points.
So every farmer Is interested in what
will Increase the value of his farm,'
even if he does not wish to sell, be
cause ' such increase only comes by
virtue of somo Convenience which
those whose farmes are not Increased
do not possess.
Wo attended last evening, by invi
tation, a Sceance, at which some, to us,
unaccountable "manifestations" were
performed in a dark room by an Indi
an and French spirit, through the
agency of a "lady and her uncle froin

. ' Brownville, July 5, 18G9.
In accordance with previous ad
journment, the "Brownville Temper
ance Society" met on Monday eve
ning, the 5th inst.
The President took the Chair, and
the proceedings of the Society were
opened with prayer by Rev. Mr.
On motion, A. L. Rich was elected
Secretary pro tern., and the minutes
of the previous meeting were read
The President then introduced Dr.
Crane, who entertained the Society
by delivering an address of sterling
ability and thrilling interest an ad
dress, not only of wisdom and elo
quence combined, but also abounding
in the practical rather than the theo
retical. The Doctor seems to have had no
time to spare for the discussion of the
refined theories on human depravity,
nor any disposition to separate him
self from those whom he would bene
fit by cracking Stale jokes at the ex
pense of the unfortunate, and thus
holding them up for public derision
in order that he may amuse an idle
curiosity. But around him, on every
side, he beholds work for the heart a3
well as the tongue; and, thoroughly
imbued with brotherly love towards
his erring brother, he knows how to
forgive as Christ comanded, and to ex
ercise the christian grace of patience,
if he would do good.
How forcible is hi3 mind impressed
with thoughts similar to those of the
Revile him not the tempter hath
A snare for all;
And pittvinr tear, not scorn and wrath

On motion, the Secretary was direc
ted to solicit a copy of Dr. Crane's ad
dress for publication. It was also
moved that Prof. Moore be requested
to entertain the Society with an ad
dress on temperance, on Monday.eve
ning, the 19th inst.
Dr. Kimberlin and the Secretary
were requested, by the. President, to
solicit signatures to the Constitution
and pledge of the Society; and the
following is the result : John Suart,
Geo. B. Moore, Geo. B. Thompson,
Willie Tipton, Louisa M. Moore and
According to previous instruction,
the Secretary waited upon Dr Crane,
and solicited a copy of the address de
livered, whereupon the Doctor replied,
in substance, "that in consequence of
the hasty manner in which it was
thrown together, and for the want of
sufficient time, he much prefered to
be permitted to retain the M. S., that
he might revise the same and re-deliver
it at somo future period
The Society then adjourned to meet
at the M. E. Church on Monday eve
