B. W. FURNAS, Editor.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1S70.
As has been announced, we have
become a partner again in the Adver
tiser, and to-day assume its-editorial
control. Custom has made it obliga
tory, on one assuming the josition of
Editor, to introduce himself in the
way of a -"Salutatory," of greater or
less length. In compliance with thi3
, requirement, we shall be brief, for
two reasons. First: That among a peo
ple with whom we have labored so
much, and so long ; in this, as well as
other capacities, we might simply
say, "judge us by the past." Second :
As Editors' Salutatories are not unlike
political platforms, and they like rail
road platforms ; not to be stood upon
while the cars are in motion, we are
not an advocate of detailed, advanced
pledges. "Times change and we
change with them," is an old and true
paying. It is further, an agreed axiom
that "any one can make out a
. programme and follow it; but to
meet an emergency, requires both
tact and ability." We prefer, there
fore, to make the effort to "meet the

Nebraska is fitted by nature as a great
Agricultural region, "development"
Jn this respect will be a watch-word.
Agriculture and its kindreds, we con
fess, has been, and is, perhaps a "hob
by" with us. This department of the
paper, will, therefore, not only be
maintained, but enlarged and im-j
" Being convinced that to keep pace
with the rapidity of the age, wc must
move on; and that Railroads and oth
er similar enterprises, develop, enrich,
expand and enlighten this growing
west of ours, our humble influence
will ever be found in that direction.
Concert of action being essential to
success in all things, we will labor to
unite the people on all questions of
general or local character.
Politically, the Advertiser will con
tinue to be unswervingly Reimbliean.
Our political convictions are firm and
fixed based upon what wc are con
vinced, are principles of justice and
right. While j e will be plain, em
phatic and in earnest, when we write
or speak on subjects pertaining to pol
itics, we will not bo forgetful of the
fact, that those who differ with us,
may be equally honest and in earnest.
The Old aud Sew Year.
Another year is dropped from the
list, and we enter upon the duties of a
new oue. It is but natural and ap
propriate that we retrospect the past,
and resolve for the future.
Very many important and wonder
bus triumphs of enterprise and sci
ence have taken place during 1SG9.
The Pacific Railroad has been com
pleted, thus "spanning the continent
with iron bands ;" the Suez Canal has
been completed, and thus decreasing
ship travel thousands of miles; thou
sands of miles of railroads have been
built, adding to the com fori and conven
ience of the country; the doors of China
have been completely unlocked ; her
commerce opened up, and her over
crowded population permitted to pour
out and fill an important item of cheap
labor in the "newworld;" the coun
try is at peace, and the harvest has
been abundant ; health prevails and
God's goodness is manifest.
Death has, however, continued to
visit the "high and the low," thus
teaching and reminding us of the
"instability of wealth and power, and
the certain decay of all earthly great
n ess. " Se n ato r Fesse nden.Scc. of War
Rollins, Ex-Secy, of War Stanton,
Gen. Wool, Ex-President Pierce, Ad
miral Stewart, Ex-Secretaries Walker
and Guthrie, Ex-Postmaster General
Amos Kendall, Henry J. Raymond,
and the milllonare and philanthropist,
Geo. Pcabody, have passed away.
Capital and labor have had their
usual contests, and while the former
has been crowned with customary
triumphs, the laboring classes have
been mare than unusually successful
in asserting rights.
We enter upon a new yeaf under
eomtwhat singular surroundings. Ag
riculture seems depressed, and conse
quently industry more or less disor
dered, and business generally dis
turbed. We feel, however, that there
is. more in imagination than reality.
The country never has, never can, we
think, be seriously checked. Our
motto is advancement, progress, de
velopment. Let us, then, with firm
confidence in "Him who doeth all
things well," enter upon the duties of
the new year, remembering that if
"our trust is in God, our faith is well
founded." Thus believing and acting,
the year 1870, will open up to us in
creased victories, achievements and
The Cuba question has long been
one in which the people of the United
States have felt a deep interest. Of
late that interest has been, and is still,
on the increase. It has been a deli
cate question. International obliga
tions prevented interference. The
question now arises as to the propriety
of establishing a new feature in the
"Law of Nations." Shall a people
desiring and strugling for liberty, fail,
because of mere technicalities in the
international code ? Or shall the true
principles of good and true govern
ments be maintained, and freedom
Aside from a principle involved in
the Cuba question as it now stands,
we have always been of the opinion
that both Cuba and Canada, of right,
belong to the United States. We be
lieve the day is not far distant when
they will be. A nation, of right, by
the laws of self-preservation, has a
right to possess all territory naturally
identified with her. This we hold to
be "a truth, self-evident." The Pres
ident, in his late message, touched the
question just sufficient to let it be
known where his sympathies are.
The Secretary of State, we under
stand, is very decidedly opposed to
interfering, or giving countenance to
the-efforts of Cubans to obtain their
freedom. We hope Congress will re
lieve both the President and Secreta
ry of any scruples they may have in
regard to this matter, and.take the
bold ground worthy this government
of ours; and establish the principle, or
feature in international law, that a
liberty-seeking people everywhere
shall be aided. It behoves the United
States to take just this position; and
she will fail in her duty to great prin
ciples to which she owes existence,
until she does ir. We have no hesi
tancy in declaring our opinion in fa
vor of Congress recognizing the inde
pendence of Cuba ; and if need be,
render" "material aid."
What a Hailroa 1 lias Already
The Burlington and Missouri Rail
road has laid down a track from the
Council Bluffs and St. Joseph Rail
road to the river bank, opposite Ne
braska City. In commenting upon
the advantages derived by this enter
prise, the Nebraska City News says:
On Thursday, Hawk, Dillon & Co.,
loaded a car, from their pork house,
with lard, for St. Louis, in just thirty
minutes. The car stood upon the Ne
braska City end of the B. & M. Rail
On Saturday, the same firm loaded
another car with lard in just twenty
minutes by the watch.
Regarding this, Mr. John II. Maxon
very pertinently remarked, that the
B. & M. Railroad would save that
pork packing establishment alone, a
thousand dollars this winter in trfcns
portation, time, and convenience. We
are glad that those gentlemen are
reaping benefits from our Eastern
W. E. Hill, Esq., is receiving lum
ber from the B. it M. Railroad track
at the Nebraska City landing. This
fact will save him half a dollar on
each thousand feet, on hauling from
the old St. Joe & C. B. depot.
Half a dollar on each thousand feet
of lumber consumed in Nebraska City
and Otoe county during the year 1870,
will make a big pile of lucre.

The Commissioner's Court
For this county opened Its January
session last Monday in the Court
House in this city, with a full board
present ; J. L, McGee, President.
Among the vast amount of irnpor
tantbusiness transacted up to the hour
of going to press, they , have let the
contract for raising and repairing the
Fisher Bridge on the Nemaha river,
(wrecked by the high rains of the
past season, and tuken.down,) and re
pairing the Hallam Bridge, on the
same stream," to C. W. .Wheeler, the
original contractor. These bridges,
we learn from Mr. Fisher and others,
were both injured by causes impos
sible to foresee in their construction,
and of course by no fault of Mr.
Wheeler, in their original construc
tion. At the last session they made ar
rangements for repairing and fitting
up the house on the Poor Farm re
cently purchased, and we learn from
Judge Ritter that It is about done ;
and that it will doubtless be rented at
this term. The Court is unanimous
in its energetic eflbrt to curtail the ex
penses of the county In this, as in all
other matters. .
We cannot stop without expressing
our pleasure at their manner of trans
acting business. Urbane, obliging and
pleasant, yet never for a moment
losing sight of the rights and inter
ests of the county. They make all who
call on business feel at home. J. M.
Hacker, County Clerk, was at his post
hard at work, yet ever ready to oblige.
The honor sits lightly on friend
Harms, our new Commissioner, who
takes hold of business matters like an
old hand, in a style gratifying to his
many warm friends.
The School Fund.
The School Fund received by the
State Treasurer for six mouths, end
ing Nov. 15th, 1SG9, amounts to $43,-
373,18, and is now, subject to appor

There has been, and yet seems to be
delay in apportioning this fund. We
hope for good reasons. The difficulty
seems to be that some counties have

case, they should suffer: Not the
counties that have been prompt and
made proper returns in due time. We

Last week two hundred and fifty
Chinamen passed over the Union Pa
cific Railroad, through Omaha, and
on to the State of Mississippi, as la
borers on Southern plantations. This !
is but the commencement of an im
portant new state of affairs, which is
to take place 'in our country. We say
important, because it will, in a very
few years, prove of far greater impor-1
tance t us than at mere glance may
appear now. We refer particularly to
cheap labor class of labor much
needed, in fact indispentible, North as
well as South. The agricultural in
terests of the United States demand a
cheaper labor than it can now obtain.
This class of cheap labor, will not, as
many think, interfere with the indus
try of our land. It will, on the con-
Hawk, Dillon & Co., and Wm. E.
Hill, Esq., and those engaged in like
pursuits pay for the roads. Don't tax
the poor man to do it." Hold on,
friend ! It isn't Hawk, Dillon & Co.,
and Wm. E. Hill who are making the
thousand dollars saved in transporta
tion, time and convenience, or the
half dollar on each thousand feet of
lumber consumed. You farmer who
raise and sell Hawk, Dillon & Co.
your hogs make that money by rea
son of increase in the.prices you get.
And you who purchase Mr. Hill's
lumber, get it for that much less. The
produce dealer and the merchant aim
to make about a certain profit. If ex
penses in getting your pork and other
produce away, are high, you get a
per cent, less in price. If low, then
the per cent, is on the other side.
So with the lumber dealer. The con
sumer pays the per cent, if expenses
on transportation are increased, or
saves it if they are reduced. Let a
track be laid down from Phelps to the
bank of the river opposite our town,
and we will soon experience a very
great difference in prices. Or let the
Trunk road be completed into our
town, and the difference will be still

Precinct Railroad Stock.
There is some difference of opinion
among our people, as to the conditions
of payment of the Precinct Railroad
Stock whether it is all to be paid at
once, or in installments asother stock,
by assessment. The stock will be
pavable iust as other stock. This is
law, and we know by conference with
the County Commissioners, that it is
their view of the matter. We have
no fear but what the matter will be
judiciously managed. Next week we
will say more, and in detail.
The German Republicans of New
York City, being loyal citizens of the
United States, and among those who
believed in suppressing the laje Rebel
lion, hold this opinion of Ex-Secreta
ry Stanton, as expressed by them in
convention, upon learning of his
"Appreciating, the great lo?s the
country has sustained in the death of
the Hon. Edwin M.'btantion :
Resolved, That we recognize in the
deceased, a man, who, as Secretary of
v ar during the great struggle for the
preservation of the ltepubhc, acted
with unswerving energy, untiring
activity, and in the most able and ef
ficient manner for the welfare of his
country ; and by his elevated position,
nuelity and directness of purpose
was instrumental in subduing the en
emies of our country, aud defeat
ing a rebellion that threatened alike
the life of the Nation and the founda
tion of the Republican Institutions
We also admire and offer due tribute
to his porsonal character ; his spotless
integrity ; his devotion to the cause of
the people, and that consciousness of
right which led him tnumphantl'
through all the vicissitudes and trials
of his responsible position, and will
make his name illustrious on the
pages of history ; being a true patriot
to wnom the salvation ot ha country
was his duty, he never hesitated to
employ all the force and resources of
the nation! to the-aeeomplishment of
that lofty purpose. His great services
to his country, and his self-sacrificing
devotion, place him before the Ameri
can people as a rare example .worthy
of emulation and immitation."
So much for the Imal . Germans.
Wc quote a few lines from an edito
rial in the last week's Democrat,
whose editor was one of those who
took up arms in the late Rebellion
against the Government i.nd nation.
In speaking of the Hon. E. M. Stan
ton's official character, he says : "The
country is too familiar with his infa
my to require a rehcrsal. He was ar
bitrary, voilent, cruel and an avowed
hater of the constitution, and a con
servative administrator of law ;" also
claiming that his death was an act of
retribution, as a punishment which
any man deserves who was instru
mental in suppressing the rebellion.
Now, Mr. Editor, it has been said
that comparisons are odious. Wc ad
mit that they sometimes are. We can
readily see how Secretary Stanton
and his co-adjutors might assume the
characters of pure, honest, upright,
philanthropist and loyal Statesmen in
the eyes of the Union Army and their
friends, and sympathize on the one
hand, and how the same men may
appear arbitrary, tyramcai, cruel, vi
olent and disgustingly hateful to all
those who were engaged in waging a
rebellion against a government and
nation which the patriots were stri
ving to uphold in all its constitu
tional purity. And upon the same
principle we reconcile the two state
ments of the character of the Hon
E. M. Stanton, one made by the loyal
Germans, and the other by thedisloy

the Washington Clironiclc:
Lincoln, Decemberl5, 1SC9.
Hon. John Taffe, Washington, D.C.:
Dear Sir: Your favor of the 8th
instant has been received. An im
pression seems to exist that I am in
different to the fate of the Fifteenth
Amendment; that I have refused to
convene our Legislature for the pur
pose of ratifying it. This is wholly erro
neous, and I desire that you correct it
so far as possible. No one can feel a
deeper interest in the measure than I,
and none are more anxious that Ne
braska should express her assent.
There are, however, good reasons
why- our Legislature should not be
convened just at present.
Questions of vital interest to the
State question requiring legislation,
may, and probably will arise during
the next two months. They do not
exist to-day, or at least have Hot as
For this reason, and this only, do I
desire to postpone the session till after
the 1st of February. Meanwhile, I
shall watch with anxiety the course
taken by Ohio and other States on this
question, and hope there may be no
doubt as regards the final result.
.Should we at any time arrive at a
point where ratification by Nebraska
is essential to success where it would
have effect then you may be assured
I shall not hesitate at once to convene
our Legislature for that purpose.
I am proud of the fact that our State
