A Romantic Story.' t
A correspondent of the ' Boston
Journal writing from Concord, N. HM
tells the following romantic story :
One. tf Ihe. happiest. Tliinksgivlng
dinners in IS ew Hampshire yesterday
was in one of our rural villages, not
thirty miles from Concord. It was
the first reunion-for ruauy years of
several generations of a certain fami
ly. At the head of the table sat the
venerable- grandfather, now eighty
one years of age. He. had come alone.
thousands of miles, from the West," to
meet his descendants. After the din
toer, he told the story pf his life. Some
of its main features we nave gatnerea
for this letter. J ' v.; i ) W J
-The hero of the story was born in
the State of New York,! and passed
his youth on a fertile farm In the val
ley of the Mohawk river. In the
course of time he was engaged to be
married.. Before the nuptials were
celebrated he became interested In an
other young lady, who also proved to
be engaged, but between them theie
soon sprung up;a strong intimacy,
which, cn the part of both, was care
fully concealed from the other parties
concerned. The most solemn pledges,
however, had been made by them,
and they shrunk from the idea of
breaking their plighted vows. In vain
they -waited, hoping that something
might occur which would cause the
other parties to give them release
frora matrimonial obligations.
At leogth they met, as they sup
posed, for the last time, and parted.
The man married and emigrated to
the West, and the woman was united
in hymeneal bonds and settled on the
shores of the Oneida lake. These
events happened nearly fifty years
ago. The Western adventurer proved
a good husband and kind father, and
grew Into middle age a widely-known
and influential citizen. Prosperity
attended him, and wealth and many
friends came to him. "v" After twenty
years of married life his wife was ta
ken from him, but children remained.
By and iby- peveral of his children
marrled,and one of thera came to
New Hampshire. ; Years passed on,
but he had never again visited the
East. : J
After repeated Invitations frora bis
relatives he -concluded a few months
arro to fnend -with them."' in. New
Hampshire, the then ' approaching
festival of Thanksgiving. He reach
ed Albany at the time of the higbt of
the great flood, and travel, being
much interrupted he stayed over a
few days, and accidently met some
. m 1
oia acquaintances . oi ms youm.
During one conversation there was
casually mentioned the name- of her
from wnom he had many years ago
so sorrowfully parted. Eagerly he
asked if she were vet alive, and when
answered in the affirmative teara came
to his eyes, and he told his friends
that he must at once set out in search
for her. He was told where she was
living only six months previous, and
thither he went with all possible haste.
but she was not there. Only a month
before she had gone away.
He learned the direction it was sup
posed she had takj?n, and again with
all possible speed he pushed forward.
liut fate seemed asrainst him, for rur
ther and further away seemed to him
the object of his search. At last, after
he had traveled hundreds of miles,
going by night as well as by day, he
found the love of his youth. The
story of the woman was one of long
toil and suffering. After ten years of
wedding life her husband had died of
lingering disease, leaving her witn
tbreer children. ... ,
One after another of these treasures
were claimed by deaths until she was
left alone and friendless. In such cir
cumstances she was found'by one
who renewed the pledge of his youth
nil anection, and asked tnat to ner
happiness he" might devote "the re
mainder of his life. Such was .the
grandfather's story at the . happy
Thanksgiving dinner, and he closed
by saying that one week from that day
he was to be married to her who had
been so long lost, but' "whaJwas at
length restored tf him. ,s
; - .
We fear toy many of our ' present
teachers are teaching because they
cannot find niore lucurative employ
ment for the winter. How many are
teaching with a heart anxious to ben
efit the district? a desire to make his
schoola grand success? We cannot
expect teachers to spend their time
and energies without proper remu
nerations, but we fear there are too
few in the ranks ambitious to teach a
first class school; too many content
to pass the winter in the school room,
keeping school rather than teaching it.
You will find ten, anxious mostly for
the pay, to one anxious for success..
Much has been said about uniformi
ty of text-books and uniformity . in
methods of instruction, both are con-
summatious devoutly to be wished ;
but we can hardly expect to attain to
either throughout . the State, yet we
do think that county uniformity may
be obtained ; but we must have . live
mentor County Superintendents, men
who will cZo something. We think it
better that our Superintendents do
something, better have a hotly and
ride that than do nothing. A. very
good plan was adopted by a O-anty
Superintendent in the State of Illi
nois. In visiting the schools, he took
notes of everything that he saw note
worthy, in each school, and published
them ih the county paper. This had
j a " . A 1 ' "
a sronaenui eneci in onnging up
teachers, to the mark, and in cleansing
dirty school rooms. It required uei ve
to do it, but it paid the people, and he
kept his office as long as he desired.
With all our efforts united, we shall
accomplish but little ; and a long time
must elapse before we can expect, tne
perfections of Massachusetts schools;
but we ought to have concert of action;
we lack sympathy with each other A3
workers in the educational field ; as
teachers, we have no great light to
follow ; each seem satisfied to follow
the flickering light of his own feeble
taper. But if we cannot follow men,
let us follow principles j' let hsiget
nearer together and aim to build on a
sure foundation. - j f ''
As teachers, there Wems to be a
spirit of jealousy or else of improper
independence. There "Certainly is a
sad lack of concert of action. . ,
There should be a rallying point
somewhere; but wjbere, that should, te
Is riot so clear.1 1 J a " J 1 1 ' 1
As teachers, we cannot all lose our"
individuality, and at once fall into the
same ' channel of thought and action)
We would suggest that if we cannot
have one great center around which
the whole State can rally, let us have
a number of shialler ones ; let each
county' have "a nucleus somewhere,
and let each teacher add his mite . to
the general fund; and what better
place can be. found than our county
paper. - - , ,
As teacners, we ao not nue to see
our articles poorly spelled or mutila
ted by inserting wrong words ; yet, if
our printers will exercise a little pa
tience and care, we shall not have rea
son to blush at the mistakes in print.
We would suggest that every teach
er in the county write an article for
one or both of. our county papers
monthly. We are confident such ar
ticles will receive from both editors
respectful attention. We send in our
m a , ' t
name ior one arucie per iiumui.

The Winter term of the State Nor
mal School will com m en ee Thursday ,
December 80th. The building has
been thoroughly refitted and painted,
aqd has been given exclusively, to the
ladies ; the gentlemen will find am
pie - accommodations in the village.
The Board of Education found it Im
possible to accommodate all the ladies
in one half of the building, so they
concluded to give it up entirely to the
lad? es ; now from forty to fifty young
ladies can find rooms in the building,
We now need another "building for
gentlemen, andwe must have, one if
we make the school a grand success.
Our State Is abundantly abie to erect
the necessary buildings, and the edu
cational Interests of the State de
Immense structures are being erec
ted for University purposes, and some
propose large expenditures for faculty
and apparatus but long years must ex
pire before the fruits of all this outlay
will appear t but every-dollar expen
ded for the Normal School v?ill be re
paid to the State ten-fold in ten years.

-." .. .-, MAIL ROUTE.'.
A private letter; from Hon. John
Taffe, M. C, informs us that if our
citizens want . better mall facilities,,
they should notify him at once. He
says : . The only county in the Uni
ted States, that gave Grant a unani
mous majority, is entitled to at least
good mail routes," and that he will do
his utmost to get them for us. This
matter must not be delayed. The line
now running from Brownville to Be
atrice should be extended to this
place via.' Indian, Creek, and .daily
service put on the entire route from
Brownville to this place, in order to ac
commodate our rapidly . increasing
popuJition. .: ,
.; Our county is settling up so rapidly
that it i3 impossible for us todve
anything like an accurate estimate of
our population, and just as impossible
for our Representatives in Congress to
know what our wants are. We hope
our citizens will take hold of this
matter at once, and .secure a daily
mail from Brownville to this place. .
WOOLEN FACTORY.' ' ' ' ; ! ' :
Elsewhere in to-days paper will be
found a call by tbe citizens for a meet
ing" for the purpose , of organizing ; a
Joint Stock Company, to build ' a
Woolen Factory in this place. This
is a move in the right direction. There
is -nothing that we know of that
would pay better than a factory of
this kind in our city.
Wehave one of the best water-pow
ers" in the country; and why hot use it?
We can build a Woolen Factory if we
up and at it. Let us not loose another
day, but go to work and build it: , ' ,
D." C. Jenkins and Mark J. Kelley
are now making their arrangements,
and will immediately " commence the
erection of a large building on Front
street, iust east of Merrill's store. One
of the lower rooms will be occupied as
a btore room and one as a Printing
office, leaving a hall of eight feet for
an enterance to the upper part of the
building, which will be occupied as a
Hotel. This building will be built in
connection with the house now occu
pied by the store and the residence of
Mr. Jenkins, and : when completed.
will be one of the larcret buildings in
Western Nebraska, and tvill add
much to the appearance of our tovfrn.
From the Chronicle.
.We learn that parties in Brownville
are making quite an -enort to secure
the location of Baptist College at that
Our citizens should take this matter
Into consideration and offer sufficient
inducements to secure its-; location
here. - Wehave theadvantage certain
ly so far as location is- concerned, but
this is not enough We must be ac
tive and wide awake, ready to help
any enterprise that has a tendency to
build up our city and country. Let
our citizens rsove in this matter with
that energy that has hitherto charac
terized them, find we will not only se
cure this, out ether institutions tnat
will.be .of lasting benefit to us.

The' following' abstract from the
books of the State Treasurer gives an
approximate idea of the financial af
fairs of the State.

"YHio's Failed !" .
TheNew York Journal of Commerce
says, editorially, m answer to the
question: "Who's failed?"
This question is never a verv pleas
and one for discussion, and ju.st now
ust now we think that some of our co-
temporaries and many private persons
also, are laying too much emphasis on
it, and repeating- it too often for the
public good. The world is not com
mg to an end with 1SG0. nor is every
body on the verge of bankruptcy. The
majority or our merchants in every
depatment of trade.' never before stood
in as strong a financial ' position as
they da at present. Credits have not
been extended, trade has . not been
carried onjso recklessly, and the bulk
of tho year's business has not been
built, as in. some former years, on in
sufficient capital, like an inverted py
ramid, Teady to topple over with the
nrst rude blast of an adverse wind.
Many persons have lived extrava
gantly upon a slender Income or in
sufficient profits, and as they come
into aDecemberreview of their finan
cial situation are unable to make both
ends meet. - But this need not create a
panic nor produce a financial revul
sion. . It is only when there has been a
general' expansion "throughout the
community, beyond safe limit3, that
trouble of this sort need be appre
hended. The new year will .bring a
revival of trade and with it fresh
courage and hope tomany hearts.
The croakers cannot produce a
general crash, but - theymay do
some mischief, and. there is noreason
for , any present exercise of their
vocation. Let U3 all have a little pa:
tience and more hopefulness ; there is
much good yet in store for us.
A Panic Among Counterfeiters
- v' From the New York Times, Dee. 15.
For some time past the officers con
nected with the United States Secret
Service Division have been quietly
engaged in the task of discovering the
whereabouts of a certain band of coun
terfeiters concerned in the manufac
ture and sale of revenue stamps. The
ilicit opeartions of the counterfeiters
were conducted bo cautiously as to
temporarily baffle the skill of the most
expert detectives. But yesterday the
government officers werp rewarded
for their patience and energy by the
capture of two very prominent mem
bers of the gang, giving their names
as Conrad Fatzer, sr., and Conrad
Fatzer, jr., the latter being a sou of
the former. Both persons are litho
graphers. . They were taken prisoners
at tneir place of business, at No. 210
William Street,' by Deputy Marshall
Christie, and Detective Nettleshlp,
belonging to the secret service. ; A
large quantity of counterfeiters' mate
rials was found on the premises, be
sides heavy piles of counterfeit two
cent internal revenue ' bank stamps.
A considerable portion of the stamps
were found to be affixed to blank book
checks." There wa3 also captured at
the prisoners shop seventeen printing
presses, the latter being in fall opera
tion, . and making , impressions of
counterfeit stamps at the time of the
raid. It is said that the greatest con
sternation was manifested by both of
the lithographers on ascertaining the
character of their official visitors, and
at being caught by them in the very
midst of their counterfeiting practices
with ample evidence of guilt in their
ossessioni . The Fatzers-' were taken
)efore United States Commissioner,
Butts, and were subsequently held in
default of $20,000 each for an examin
ation. .Not being able to 'furnish the
requisite bonds, they were lodged In
the Ludlow street jail. The , detec
tives are now looking after the dealers
who circulated thecounterfeitstamps,
printed by the Fatzers, and 1 have
strong hopes of-being able to find
them. . - .i ; ; . ; .
Ott6 Klrtzrnan, proprietor of a retail
cigar' store at Hoboken, and William
Baggs and Robert' Parker, aged re
spectfully 19 , and , 20 years, were
brought before Commissioner Osborn
yesterday; on charge of dealing in
counterfeit $20 - notes purporting to
have been issued by the Market Na
tional Bank of this city. .. The arrests
were made by United States . Deputy
Marshall Crowley, who '"worked up
the Case in a very admirable manner'
It appears that, Mxr, Crowley learned
Kirtzman had been in the habit of
selling Baggs & Parker large quanti
ties of this money for some time-past;'
and that he had omlast-Friday met
the boys in a private room at the Atlan
tic Hotel, corner of TJowery and Oli
ver street, and sold them fifteen of the
$20 . billa;of the . kind.". Parker ' was
caught on Monday evening at a liquor
store Jn West Twenty-seventh street
with twelve .'of the counterfeit notes in
his possession. ICirtzman was arrested
at a resturant on the Bowery." - It is
claimed that he was arrested in Hobo
ken some time ago on the charge of
Eassing counterfeit money, but that
e got off on the plea that he acted
without criminal intent Baggs and
Parker were committed in default of
$3,000 bail. , Kirtzman. was held in
$15,000 bail, which, he was unable to
obtain. Assistant District Attorney,
Purdy will represent the government
in the prosecution of the prisoner. ,:

HORTICULTURAL DEPARTS! e'S.
,To keep pace with the growing In
terest In practical horticulture, and to
to comply with the frequent appeals
from all parts of the country for infor
mation of a practical character on the
subject, we have engaged the services
of a person , who is experienced in
rural affairs, to write m a lucid style
a peries of articles on the management
of small farms,- fruit and vegetable
culture, and how to make them pay,
giving general and specific directions
from planting to the ultimate disposal
of the crops. .......
Of late years there has been a lucra
tive business carried on bv unnrinci
pled men, in selling worthless and
old plants under new" names to the
inexperienced. The Tribune will be
always ready to guard the farmer
against anysuch imposition that comes
within our knowledge.
VETERINARY DEPARTMENT. '.
To make the Tribune still more val
uable to its agricultural readers, we
have engaged Prof. James Law, Vet
erinary Surgeon in Corneli Universi
ty, to answer questions concerning
diseases of cattle, horses, sheep, and
other domestic animals, and to pre
scribe remedies. Answers and pres
scriptions will be given only through
the columns of the Tribune. We are
sure that this new feature will add
largely to its readers, as all owners of
animals are liable to need the infor
mation proffered. Inquiries should
be made as brief as possible, that the
questions, answers, and prescriptions
may be published together. In short,
we intend that the Tribune shall keep
in the advance in all that concerns the
agricultural, manufacturing, mining,
and other interests of the country,
and that for variety and completeness,
it shall. remain altogether the most
valuable, interesting, and instructive
newspaper published in the world.
It has been well observed that a
careful study of the Farmers' Club
reports in the Tribune alone will save
a farmer hundreds of dollars in his
crop. In addition to these reports, we
shall continue to print the best things
written on the subject of agriculture
by American and foreign writers, and
shall increase these features from year
to year. As it is, no priident farmer
can dp without it. As a lesson to his
workmen alone, ever farmer should
place the Weekly Tribune upon his
table every Saturday evening.
- The Tribune is the bent and chcapat
paper in the countri: This is not said
in a spirit of boastfulness. It has fal
len to New York to create the greatest
newspapers of the country. Here
concentrate the commerce, the manu
facturies, the mineral resources, the
agricultural wealth of the Republic
Here all tho news gathers, and the
patronage is so largethat journalists
can afford to print it. . This is the
strength of the Tribune. We print
the cheapest, and best edited weekly
newspaper in the country. We have
all the advantages around us. We
have great Daily and Semi-Weekly
editions. All the elaborate and intri
cate machinery of our establishment
perhaps the most complete in Amer
ica is devoted to the purpose of mak
ing the Weekly Tribune the best and
cheapest newspaper in the world, j
The result is that we have so syste
matized and expanded our resources
that, every copy of tho Weekly Tri
bune contains as much matter as a
duoceimo volume. Think of it! .For
two dollars for one year, buys as much
reading matter as though he filled a
shelf of his library with fifty volumes,
containing the greatest works in the
language. The force of cheapness can
no further go.
The Weekly Tribune is the paper of
tho people. Here the eager student
may learn the last lesson in science.
Here the scholar may read reviews of
of the best books. Here may be found
correspondence front all parts of the
world, the observations of sincere and
gifted men, who serve the Tribune in
almost every country.
. Ther Tribune Is strong by reason of
its enormous circulation and great
cheapness. It has long been conceded
that the Weekly Tribune ba3 the lar
gest circulation of any newspaper in
tho country. ;For years we have
printed twice as many papers, perhaps,
as all of the other weekly editions of
the city, dallies combined. This Is
why we are enabled to do our work so
thoroughly and cheaply. . The larger
our circulation, the better paper we
can make.. , . .
" What are the practical suggestions?
Many. . Let every subscriber renew
his subscription; and urge his neigh
bors to do the same. If a man cannot
afford to pay two dollars, let him raise
a club, by inducing his neighbors to
subscribe, and we shall send him a
copy gratis for his trouble. No news
paper so large and. complete as the
Weekly .Tribune M'a3 ever before of
fered at so low" a 'price.' Even when
our currency was at par with gold," ho
such paper out the Tribune was offered
at that price; and the Tribune then
cost far less than it now does. We
have solved the problem of making
the best and cheapest newspaper in
America.;, ... ' : . .'

Address, The Tribune, New.York..
The Chicago Republican of Tues
day, the 14th, in speaking of the local
hog market, says:
The receipts show a material falling
off from the corresponding week last
year, and are a little less than the pre
ceding week this season. The light
supply has a tendency-to keep prices
up, and the increased demand for the
product is a material element in sus
taining the tone of the market. Pri
ces have had a wide range, being as
low as $9 73 for light averages, and as
high as $11 00 for heavy. The receipts
yesteriay and to-uay amount to about
10,000 head, although the number re
ported is only about half that amount.
Heavy hogs sell readily, but light av
erages are dull. The market clones
quiet but firm at $10 25 10 SO gross,
and $12 50(13 00 net for light to hea
vy averages. The N. Y. Tribune of
Monday, the ,13th, In speaking. on the
same subject, says: . r
The speculative demand, so notice
able last week, has since been even
more marked, though since then we
have had considerable variableness,
and for the past few. days more activi
ty and increased confidence in higher
prices in the future. Careful estimates
of the number of - hogs packed this
year at the West show a gnat falling
off, and the entire packing is placed at
2,100,000 Hogs, the rongh weight being
5 per cent less than last year or equal
to 1,000,000 Hogs of last years' weight.
To-day there wa3 only a jobbing de

A 32an Anion?: tie Floating Ice
on tlie JJes 'lolncs.
A few days since when the Dc
Moines river was at its highest sta??,
and when its bosom was covered wiLh
floating ice, Mr. L. D. Kimbcrlirtg,
residing near Coalport, Poik town
ship, desiring to cros to the other sidor
of the river, procured a common skiff,
and alone ventured upon the water.
After rowing about half way acrc?s,
his frail boat stuck in the limbs cf a
shag, or tree, which had lodged, andi
threetened to capsize it. Mr. K. arosor
from his scat, and using his oar, push
ed his boat from its'entAnglement,
from which it became loosened with
a jerk, throwing Mr. K. forward with
such force as to cause him to run his
foot through Its bottom, causing ther
boat tat once fill with water and
sink, leaving its late occupant to
struggle for life amid Ice and freezing
water, several rods from shore.
Being a man of nerve and an excel
lent swimmer, Mr. K. accepted tho
situation and "struck for timber."
Having swam . through the ope:
water, and when within about thirty
feet from shore, his progress wa.s tar
red by a solid cake of ico extending
from the shore solid enough to pre
vent his swimming yet not strong
enough to bear his weight. With
limbs almo?t frozen, he found hinv
self cut off from safety by a wide ex
panse of rotten, trencherous ice, which
crumbled and broke at his eifort to
gain a footing. The prospect Leforo
the unfortunate man was dark indeed ;
but his present situation, if long
mantainea, wa3 certain death, with a
grave at the bottom of the river, his
only hope of release from the terrib'o
suffering he was experiencing. Ho
quickly decided upon hi3 course, and
by breaking through the ice, by rai
ing his arms upon Hand throwing his
whole strength Into the effort, he sue"
ceeded in clearing a way to the shore,
upon which he dragged himself mora
dead than alive being almost help
less from cold, with hi3 lower extrcui
eties chilled almost to freezing.
Assistance being rendered, tho suf
fering man was taken to a house near
by, where the proper remedies were
administered a goml warm fire and
warm blankets applied to releive him
of his chilliness, and in a few hours
he was ready again: for anything
which required cool, determination
and iron grit in in its accomplisoment.

confidence in the certainty of the pro
