This thriving town is situated on
the Big Blue river, eighteen miles
north of the Kansas line and sixty
five miles west of the Missouri river.
We yesterday had a call from Rev.
Mr. McNeil, a Presbyterian clergy
man located at Beatrice, who Inform
us that the town is making rapid and
substantial improvement, and promis
es at no distant day to become a large
and thriving place. The Big Blue la
unequalled in the State as a water
power stream, whilst the soil and
climate of the surrounding country,
make it very favorable for agricultu
ral purposes. There are in the imme
diate vicinity inexhaustible quantities
of limestone, the very best material
for building the stone with which
the capital buildings at Lin cold are
built being procured at these quarries.
The population of the town is about
four hundred, whilst the entire coun
try surrounding is rapidly filling up
with enterprising settlers. There are
at present at least twenty-five build
ings, mostly of stone or bricks, in
process of construction." Two fine
church edifices, a school house and a
free bridge are under headway. St.
Joe. is the commercial market for Be
atrice and the surrounding country.

Many persons are in "the habit of
sleeping for nail an hour or an hour
immediately after dinner." Thi3 is a
bad practice, ten minutes, sleep before
dinner is worth more than an hour af
ter. It rests and refreshes, and pre
pares the system for vigorous diges
tion. If sleep is taken after dinner It
should be in the sitting posture, aa
the horizontal position is unfavorable
to healthful digestion. Let those who
need rest and sleep during the day
take it before dinner instead of after,
and they will soon find that they feel
better digestion will be improved

The Ifevr Regent of Spain.
Spain Is once more a monarchy
without crowned heads, the Constitu
ent Cortes having passed a decree .es
tablishing a regency under Marshal
Serrano, on the duties of which he en
tered on Saturdays. This Is the third
time within forty years past that thd
Spanish people have had a regent for
their ruler. In October, 1S32, Queen
Christina was appointed regent daring
the indisposition of her infamous con
sort, Ferdinand vil, then near hL
end, and continued to act in that ca
pacity till his death in the following
year, when she assumed the title o?
Governing Queen until her infant
daughter, Isabella II., lately driven
from the Spanish throne, should at
tain her majority. Queen in title, she
was regent in reality, holding tho
throne for her daughter, whose claim
to it Hgainst the pretensions of Don
Carlos were established by the quadru
ple treaty of 1834. Victorious over
the Carlists, after a terrible civil war,
lasting for seven years, Christina wa.-
compelled by the revolutionary move
ment at Madrid in 1840, to abdicated
and leave the Kingdom, her downfall,
being followed by the appointment of
the celebrated General, Eipartcro,
Duke of Victory, to power, as Regent,
during the minority of the youhg
Qeeen. Espartero held power for a
little over twa years, at tne expiration
of which time he was himself over
thrown by a revolution, immediately
after which event, the nation having
had enough of regency, the young
Queen, although only 13 years of age,
was declare! by the Cortes to be of age.
The history of her reign is well
known. She, In her turn, has been
driven out of Spain, and irt default of
an eligible candidate for the Spanish
throne, a Regency ha3 once more
been established. Francisco Serrano,
the new Regent, is one of tho?e many,
soldiers of fortune In Spain who owe
their fame and rank to the devotion'
with which they attached themselves
to the cause of Christina, and the
courage with which they fought dur
ing the war of independence. Like
many other of hi claws ho Was liber- -ally
rewarded by the Queen Mother;
and at the period of her overthrow in
1S41, he already held high rank In tlie
military service of hi3 country. The'
Queen's abdication and exile did not
long retard his advancement, for he
took a prominent part in tho success
ful movement ngamst the Regent Ks-.
partero, and immediately on the res
toration of Christina he joined Naf
vaez in his scheme to combat and des
troy the influence of the Minister OIo-
zaga. He played his cards with so
mch skill that he continued steadily
to rise at Court, gaining such great in
fluence over the mind of the youngs
Queen that in IS 10, some time after
hermarriage, a very serious difference
occurred between her and the King
consort, arrising out of the latter's
jealousy of Gen. Serrano. This
domestic difficulty was Indeed a mat
ter of public scandal at the time. An
attempt Was made shortly after by
the Dukedc Sotomayer to ruin Serran
tid. politically, but it recoiled on that
Ministers Own head, Serrano succeed
ing irj overthrowing the Ministry f
which the' Duke was chief. Popular
opinion, however, proved more pow
erful than Royal favor, and Serrano
subsequently fell with the Ministry of
saiamanca, witn wiiose fortunes he
identified himself. Up to this time
lucky favorite had been a reactionary
In politics, but he lied with what U
known in Spain as the Liberal Union
Earty. He was sent 18-54 into exile for
aving taken part in the Saragossa
outbreak but the revolution of July
in that year opened the way for his
return .to fcpain, and he became a
warm supporter of the O'Donnell Es
partero coalition. He played a prom
inent part in the coup d'etat, of July
1K5C, it being principally through his
instrumentality that the insurrection
in Madrid was subdued, and O'Don
nell enabled to seize power as dictator.
For this service he was sent as Em
bassador to Paris ; but the downfall
of O' Don nel shortly after led to his
recall. In 1SG5 he was. appointed by
the new O'Donnell Cabinet Captain
General af Madrid. For many years
he ha3 had a seat in the Senate, whero
he has distinguished himself by a uni
form and vigorous- opposition to the
reactionary policy of the old school of
Spanish Statesmen, and by his hearty
support of all liberal measures. Ho
has taken a quiet but Jnllueutual part
in this last revolution, and he owshis
elevation to power as regent to tho
character he has won of lato yeara for
prudence and moderation, joint! to
liberal and enlightened views. Ser
