J. S. CIIUKCII, Editor
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3V 18G9.
Our Editorial duties In connection
w ith the Advertiser closes with this
Issue. We have disposed of our
Interest and good will in the office to
Col. R, W. Furnas, who will hereafter
be known as its responsible Editor
.. .and business manager.
In assuming the control of the pa
per on the 5th day of November, 18U7,
we brought to the discharge of our
c? - - - ' j
new duties a desire and resolute deter
mination to work for the development
of the City of Brownville, the County
of Nemaha, and the State of Nebras
ka. as against all individual interests;
as against all petty echemes of cliques
and corrupt politicians, whether of
high or low estate. Our aim was to
encouraere the permanent establish
ment and continuation of a just and
"beneficent policy of City, County and
State government; one recognizing
impartially the rights and privileges
of the individual citizen: and one
without odious class discriminations,
favorine or oppressing any : to foster
such a development of our internal
resources as would conduce to the
public rood : to work fn the Interest
. of morality, education, general chris
' tianity, good government, the eleva
tion of jnankind, and for theamelior
ation of suffering humanity. In other
: words, to build up society by encoara
ging the good and exposing the bad.
How far we have fulfilled our mission,
we leave to the kind and impartial
judgment of an Indulgent public to
determine. The pain which we have
endured for the errors and failures
' which have resulted, are in a measure
compensated by the fact that our con
science then approved of the course
pursued. We have admitted adver
Using matter into our columns, not
.from choice, but from pecuniary ne
cessity. which has been a source of
regret to a few of our warmest friends ;
. bo that our editorial carreer has not
been without its dark lines. Notwith
standing,the Advertiser has prospered,
and at no time was our subscription
list larger, or our advertising space
more eagerly engaged by commercial
men, that at the present.
'As we review the past, and reflect
vtpon the many encouraging words of
commendation by hosts of true and
tried friends which have reached our
'ears, we feel that we have succeeded
in some -measure in meeting the ex
pectations of our readers and patrons.
We feel truly grateful to all for the
material aid they have rendered us in
- the discharge of our duties, public and
private, since our connection with the
Jly constant work and labor In the
office, we have become deeply attached
to the paper which has grown up so
vigorously under our fostering care.
We have received the kindest treat
ment from our co-partners and all con
nected with theoffice ; and we hope
this interestjand good feeling may in
crease with the comingyears. We
hand over the responsibilities of our
position into abler hands. Col. Furnas
is one of the pioneer newspaper men
in Nebraska having established the

lie was for seven years thereafter its
' sole proprietor. We entertain no fears
of Its future success. With hopeful
feelings': of the bright future that
awaits our beloved paper, we retire
from active duty with nothing but
good will for the paper, its proprietors
and Its patrons. May God bless it.
The officers of the Nemaha Valley
.Lodge of Masons of Brownville wera
puUlcally installed on last Monday
evening. The Hall was crowded with
thejjrethren of the order, their wives
And daughters, and with many visit
ing brethren from the Peru Lodge.
After the ceremonies of installation
were finished, the Stewards reported
Uiatrrefreshments had been provided
for those present at William Allen's
restaurant. After supper the company
assembled in the Hall to listen to
short speeches, and for social inter
courso. We have attended many so
cial gatherings in Brownville, but at
none where the heartless convention
alism Of the dav which afflirt and
impede social Intercourse, were more
heartiIy;abandoned,-and where each
one was placed so squarely and unre
servedly upon a level, as at this. The
best of feeling prevailed. The short
speeches of the older members were
listened to with marked attention
and the allusion to the charter mem
bers all now living but one who
twelve years ago aided in organizing
the lodge, called out a shoit Impromp
tu and happy sermon from Parson
Davis, upon the mutability of all
tearthly joys, and the stern necessity
Altogether it was the grandest social
gathering the order ever witnessed in
Brownville, and a credit to the har
mony, good feeling, and future inter
ests of the fraternity in: this city:
May we live to witness more such.
A till for the reconstruction of Geor
gia has been passed by Congress. By
virtue of its p rovisions Governor Bul
lock will Icue a'proclamatiou requir
ing the Leg&lature, as it was before
the negroes were expelled, to meet on
Wednesday, the 12th of January. It
originally consisted of seventy-four
senators one hundred and seventy-five
representatives. Since it first met
two members have been killed, five
have died, and fifteen are refugees

twenty-nine more are Ineligible. The
till does not make any provisions for

Td tiic child ucrT.
You have all spenta "Merry Christ
mas." We are happy when we see
children enjoying themselves In
youthful sport. All work and study
would make James a dull boy. We
used to enjoy hugely, ourself, in play
ing with the children of the school
district in Which we lived ; and even
now look back to the times when we
were young, with infinite pleasure.
These plays served to develop theraus
clo, the bone, the limbs, and made us
active, cheerful, and social. It gave
us an excellent opportunity to study
character, and draw out those powers
of mind which serve us now that we
are older In our Intercoure with our
ff llow-mcn in the actual business of
Boys have their organizations, in
which some must lead and control
some plan and others execute: and
In which every boy can find some
thing to do. These organizations are
governed by no written code of laws,
or formal putting of questions and
passing of resolutions. They have no
written records ; still they are as ex
act, and have their presiding and con
troling geniuses as surely as any In real
So we say we are In favor of letting
boys have their fun and frolic in their
own way ; and we consider it just as
necessary a portion of their education
jis any to be obtained in the school
room. We hope none of our youthful
readers will Indulge In plays that tend
to develop immoral habits. We hope
none will encourage or countenance
brutality In boys or In animals. Let
them choose such as tend to develop
the physical, mental or moral nature
ofthosewho participate therein; those
that will make boys better men, and
girls better women.
But as we have others to talk with
vou this week, we will give the floor
to them, and read what they say.
They have a rich and varied experi
ence, and will no doubt interest you.
Children love those who show an
interest In them ; they love those who
come down to their thoughts and feel
ings. I'll tell you children, what I
have been thinking about lately:
When I was in Iowa, we used to
have a rousing Sabbath School, and
we hardly ever had much trouble
about getting the children to attend ;
I think one reason was, we used to
take pains to get up good times for the
We never spent three months with
out having some gathering for the
benefit of the children a festival,
picnic, jubilee or something of the
kind; and we did have some glorious
I know some of the old people used
to grumble and say, "they never had
any sucn things when they went to
school," and "it was all foolishness,"
"a waste of time," and all such kind
of stuff, but I used to think of the
story of the bear with a sorehead, and
just let them grumble. I know the
children must have some recreation,
and if they cannot have good, they
will have bad.
I find the people in Nebraska very
similar to those in Iowa; they say,
"it is so much trouble and fuss ;" "it
don't pay;" "they are tired of it."
Now, I do not doubt it in the least,
that old folks are tired of it ; but who
ever heard any boy or girl 6ay they
were tired of it? I never did; did
you? Well, children, I think they
forget a very important thought, that
children are not like old people; and
th?y must have something in which
they are Interested to occuy their
minds. Old people forget that for two
or three week3 befort a festival, chil
dren's minds are taken up with that,
and after it. has gone by, thf.Yfind
something to think of and talk about
for a month, and that it is a green spot
in their lives; and they look back to
it with a great deal of pleasure.
Now, Children, I have been real
sorry that older people don't feel wil
ling to trouble themselves a little for
your pleasure ; and here at Peru, I
just feel real bad for the children, for
there are very little pains taken to
make them happy.
There is once in a while a young
old man who can enter into the hearts
of children and make them happy.
I think Mr. Ebright is one, don'tyou?
and I say, Lord give us more such
men in Nebraska at least one in ev
ery Sunday School and then I know
the wants of the children will be
Now, lam real glad Mr. Church has
started a Children's Department in
the Advertiser, and lam going to write
fot it once and awhile if he will let
me. I believe he is another man who
thinks of the children ; and I know I
do, very often. .
. So children, I guess we better start
a Children's Friend Society, and we'll
elect Mr. Church President and Mr.
Ebright Secretary, and I .will make
the motions and, see if we can't do
something for the benefit of the chil
dren in Nemaha county.
Now, who will join our Children's
Friend Society? all who will, send
your names to the Secretary.

After a two day's struggle we have
succeeded in having the ordersubmit

ville rescinded, and in its stead anoth
er order has been made to accomplish
the same object in another form more
wMt.nhlfl to the public. We think
that there will be very little epposl
tion to the measure in its present
The effect will be Immediately felt
in the spring. The Brownville, Ft
Kearney & Pacific Company will be
ready to commence active operation
on the line through this county in the
spring, and if the auspices for work
are reasonably favorable the coming
season, we have but little doubt that
by next winter the cars will be run
niug to the western edge of Nemaha
county. This not only can. but must
be done. The interests of every far
mer in Nemaha county demands this
of the company. The interests of ev
ery working man, of every mechanic,
of every property holder calls upon
the company for energetic action.
There has been talk enough. Actual
work is the next thing in order.
Let the stock holders see to it that
the company is fully organized and
eoulned for effective labor at the
earliest possible moment. .
We have more hope now than ever
hefore that the dav for Brownville is
about dawning, and hereafter we shall
be found at the front so far as lm
provements and facilities for transpor
tation are concerned.
We are assured that the cars will be
running by the close of next summer
from a point on the Missouri river op
posite Brownville to Marysville in
Nodaway county, connecting with
the St. Louis, Chillicothe and Omaha
road. United effort on the part of all
will result in securing the completion
of these roads atan early day.
The people of Nishnebottana, Clay,
and Tarkio precincts, in Atchison
county Missouri, are agitating the
juestion of subscribing fifty thousand
dollars each to the Q. M. & P. Rail
Road, on condition that the road is
completed through that county, from
Brownville east, the coming summer.
The com pan y propose that the road
shall be so built, if the subscription,
and a like one in Nodaway county, is
made to the capital stock of the com
pany. This means business ; and we
hope and trust tnat there will be no
The people of Brownville have a
work to do in this grand enterprise.
We are as deeply interested in the
completion of this road next summer,
as though it were wholly in Nemaha
county. Let no opportunity to press
the matter slip by without a word of
exortation and advice to go ahead.
Pay out your money wisely and judi
ciously, and the work Is accomplished.
The business men of Brownville
have at last awakened to a ense of duty.
They were out enmasse,Jn consulta
tion on Tuesday aud Wednesday over
railroad matters; and we are happy
to say arrived at a complete under
standing, and ' henceforth there will
be what we have so much labored for
unity, of action so far .as the
building of the great through line
is concerned from Quincy via Brown
ville to Ft. Kearney. The Brownville
Ft. Kearney Company is to be imme
diately reorganized. Work is to com
mence in the Spring energetically and
pushed without the loss of a single day
until it is completed through Nemaha
County, for which purpose there Is
now awaiting expenditure the sum of
$318,000. We ask for strict economy
and immediate action. k

Mr. THAYER. I offer the follow
ing resolution, and ask for its present
RetoTved, That the Attorney General be dl-
dlrected to furnish to the Senate a copy of
any opinion delivered by bin relating to oar
national cemeteries in the lately rebellious
States, and on the question whether it is nee
essary to obtain the consent of the Legisla
tures of the States In which those cemeteries
are located for the permanent continuance of
the said cemeteries therein.
There being no objection, the Sen
ate proceeded to consider the. resolu
Mr. THAYER. I desire to state the
reasons which have induced me to of
fer this resolution. I have seen float
ing around in the newspapers -what
purported to be nn extract from the
opinion of the Attorney uenerai on
that question, and I desire to know
the facts. The statement is made that
he has rendered an opinion that it is
necessary to obtain the consent of the
Legislatures of the States within
which those cemeteries are located for
their permanent continuance, and
that they should be paid for it. I have
been led to believe, ana 1 still oeiieve,
that those who fell fighting in behalf
of our national existence earned a full
and unqualified title 4 the resting
places where their bodies sleep. If
they are to be disturbed on the refusal
of the Legislatures to give their con
sent I desire to know it; or rather, I
am opposed to asking the consent of
any Legislature or of anybody else to
secure the undisturbed possession, of
the soli inclosea within those ceme
teries. They died in the defense of
their country, and their restinc-Dlaces
are hallowed spots. Sir, I am ready,
for one, to say that if need be we will
fight through another war to hold
forever sacred the craves where our
heroes sleep. '
The resolution was adopted.
