In entering upon the fourteenth
.' year of our paper, we bring to our aid
the experience of the past the ster
ling present, and hope for a prosper
ous future to assist us In the labor of
making a paper which, Lf all our pat
rons do not just like, they cannot
afford o do without.
In a new State so rich in undevel
oped resources as Nebraska is, there is
ample opportunity for us to make a
periodical useful to the individual cit
izen, and of untold benefit to the State
" Socially, their are evils to curb and
'correct, and virtues to commend;
morally, there are vices which should
be punished, and human measures
which call for our aid ; politically,
there are correct and sound policies
. to be permanently established, and
political heresies to be crushed out;
physically, there are laws of health
. which need advocates, and intemper
ate and dissipated habits which loudly
eall for reform.
Materially, we have agricultural,
the dairy, the wool, the railroad, the
manufactory, the educational the hu
man, the coal and the mineral re
sources of our State to develop.
We have a State, the southern half
of which is rich in undeveloped water
owers which should be made to drive
the wheel, the loom, the swindle, the
lathe, the saw, the plainer, the wheel
"right's machinery, the tanning geer-
iug, the stone saw, fcc.
In Nemaha county we have the
Little Nemaha river with her five
mill-dams and grist mills ; Johnson
county has the Big Nemaha river
with her three mills; Richardson
has the same river with three mills
thereon; Pawnee county has the
same river with at least two mills
-running; Gage, Saline and Jefferson
have the Big and Little Blues with
two good mills in each county ; none
of these are using their full power,
'and can turn double the present ma
chinery for manfacturing purposes.
For the accomplishment for anyone
and all these purposes shall we labor
the coming year weekly drawing the
attention of capitalists and manufac-
turers to these subjects. e shall

Ex-Secretary O. II. Browning has
recently delivered a 6peech, in which
appears the following sound uemo
Imperfection is Inherent In our race.
"NYe can hope for, and it is our duty as
well as our exalted privilege, to attain
a degree of perfection, or, more prop
erly speaking, a degree of excellence.
It is within our power to do that. To
do it, and when we do It, we ought to
he eonxcrratire. It ia & roint bevond
which we can't pass. All the talk we
hear about progress in the science and
fundamental principles of govern
ment, is the cant of mere demagogues.
. "VVe noticed three of our subscribers
from Swan, City, trading with our
merchants and lumber dealers, this
week. Our paper going out into the
interior of the State, is continually
reminding out readers that Brownviile
offers many advantages as a trading
point: and the advertisements we
' publish, direct their minds as uner-
ringly to the house they are to call at
when they come -to our town. Mr.
Freeman, of Swan City, told us he
came for lumber and to do some tra
ding; and he said, that although he
was unacquainted with the merchants
of Brownviile, yet he had made up
liis mind before leaving home, from
rtxiAinrr flio nr? rfH !cpmfn tn in nnr tin.-
per, which house he should go to to
do his trading. Many persons under
value the influence of a newspaper in
developing the resources of a country.
It circulates where no mere haud-bil is
will go. Its variety offers something
of interest to . thousands of readers,
and fixes their minds in the direction
of the town or city from which it is
tent. This is repeated daily and week
ly, year after year, rendering its influ
ence incalculable. By building up
your newspapers, then you build up
towns, cities and country.
The official canvass of the election
as now on file, will be found in anoth
er column. One fact is evident, and
that is that but a little over half of our
full vote was polled. The total vote
this year Is 1.1G4, while last year the
voto was 1.31S upon 1,600 registered
votes. "We have not learned exactly,
the vote registered this year, but know
it cannot fall far short of 2,000. The
result, whether gratifying or not, re
mains the same, showing the election
of two Democrats on the people's tick
et, one Republican on the Republican
ticket, and the balance of the people's
ticket of Republicans. That it will
teach Republicans that an overwean
Ing confidence in large majorities can
never be Indulged in without risk, Is
undoubted. And we are pleased to
note the fact that many Republicans
who aided in bringing about the above
result, are as much chag. ined at seeing
two Democrats Installed in our best
offices, as those who did all in their
power to prevent it. The most nau-
ceaiing uoses are oiten necessary to
restore the body corporal, and we ex
pect great benefits to flow iron this
dose to the Rpublican body politic
of Radical Nemaha.

opinion that as the lump had but just
bvfrun forming, the meat could not be
alTccted. We cannot afford to mix

Some "Loyal Leaguers" In New
York have anuounced their intention.
U is said to oppose and vote against
Xkrace Greely, candidate for State
Comptroller, at the coming election.
The reason alleged for their action is
that Mr. Greely became bondsman for
Jeff Davis. It is further stated that
Mr. Greely may probably be forced to
decline on account of this dissatisfac
tion. We hope not, although if elect
ed, we know it would be a great sac
rifice on his part to preform the duties
of the position. Mr. Greely is worth
more to the Republican party than ten
thousand of these "Loyal Leaguers,"
and he should not give way on account
of their puny opposition.
