Geo. D. Trentice is Dead.

odcath of 3ix). D. PKEXTiCE, the vefc
- cran editor of the Lotlsville, Ken
" tucky Journal, Our earliest recollec
tion of him as an editor was thirty
years ago, when we were an appren
tice in a Kentucky newspaper office.
' Mr. Prentice was then in his prime as
a man and an editor. He was the un
faltering champion of Hexry Clay
c from beginning to end. In his palmy
days he had no superior as a newspa
per writer. As a wit, none excelled
0 him. As a poet, he ranked with the
best of the land. While like the
rest of mankind, he had his faults,
he "goes down to the grave with hon
ors thick upon him," at nearly the
age of man "three score years and
Men." He was sixty-eight years of
age. "Peace to his ashes." May the
worldly favored with more such men
as Geo. D. Prentice.
c lion Jno. Taffe, our worthy and
efficient Representative in Congress
has, among other important measures
Inaugurated by him, Introduced
Joint Resolution to disincumber the
publio domain from so-called Indian
Title. The following is the copy of
the resolution which was read a first
and second time, and referred to the
committee on Indian Affairs :
Joint Resolution to disincumberthe
Public Domain of the so-called In
- Be It resolved by the Senate and
blouse of Representatives of the
c United States of America in Congress
assembled. That after the expiration
of one vear from the passage of this
joint resolution, the public domain of
the United fctaies snan oe nciu to uc,
and shall be treated in all respects as
Unincumbered of the 60-calIed Indian
f This is an important movement in
the right direction; and we are re
joiced that It hails from a Represen
tative from Nebraska. The recogni
tion of Indian Titles and Indian
Treaties have always been humbugs
of the most enlarged magnitude. The
Indian needs to be treated Just what
he is hi reality the ward of the Na
tion made amenable to our laws and
subject to its penalties, and when he
o arrives at a suitable period in advance
ment, either by the infusion of pure
"white blood, or natural development,
make him a citizen, entitled to equal
rights and privileges under the law.
0 "We Bee by late accounts from Wash
ington that the Commissioners have
resolved to request the Secretary of
- the Interior to recommend to Con
gress a liberal appropriation for edu
rational purposes, to be expended
among tribes and bands gathered on
reservations and In other permanent
homes, and to put the expenditures of
moneys not otherwise provided for,
c. under the direction of the Secretary,
and to place all schools for Indians or
dered by the Government, under the
inspection of said Commissioners or
other authorized agents. They also
agree In asking appropriations to aid

Reservations. Break up treaty ma

. Our notice of the "Revolution" last
week the Woman's Rights paper
caused us to receive a complimentary
letter from a lady, in which, among
other thing, she says "I am glad to
know that you are on the side of
woman's rights." Yes, my friend,
we arcs on the side of woman' t rights
on the side of the right of all man
kind. But do not understand the
friendly editorial notice we gave the
Revolution newspaper, to mean an en
dorsement of the now much talked of
' and understood policy of "female suf
frage." We do not now propose to
enter Into a detailed discussion of this
subject may, when circumstances
and time will better permit. To not
be misunderstood, however, we say
. that individually, we are opposed to
, the passage of a law by eltherCation
al or State authorities, imposing the
elective franchlze upon the women of
this land. We use the words impos
ing In place of conferring, as is usual
in this connection, because we consid-
' er it more-appropriate. Confer, Web
ster says, means to "grant favors,
benefits." Impose means to "burden,
, tax, toll," says the same author!ty,
we believe to clothe woman with the
elective franchjze, would be to impose
a duty, not confer a favor. We be
lieve fully and to the utmost extent
in her purity, power, efficiency and
capability ; and as fully that all these
essential would be lessened, when
she "dabbles In the dirty pool of poli
tics." We do not believe as is' assert
ed, that the exereise of the elective
franchise will elevate man to any
great extent, at least ; but on the con
trary, that the true and pure sphere
and usefulness of woman, would.be
lowered. To-day, woman rules and
governs the enlightened, refined and
Intelligent portion of the ' world,
through the channels, and In that way
designed by her Creator she gives it
its tone and character; and when her
present relations and sphere are
changed, these great results are lost,
or at least greatly Impaired. Extend
the elective franchise to wom.au, and
as a rule, that portion of them who
to-day rule the world for good, would
not participate. And yet, with these
Ideas, when we are convinced that a
majority of the woman of the land
wish to enjoy the elective franchize-,
we would be willing to extend It to
But we promised not to enter Into
this question in detail at present.
Oar Scliool Funds.
We have been shown by Dr. 11c
Grew, County School Superinten
dent, a notice from the Stae School
Superintendent, Mr. KsAii, an offi
cial notification of the apportionment
of School Funds for Nemaha county.
The sura specified Is $3,4tf, the pro
portionate amount due the county
from what is now In the hands of the
State Treasurer for school purposes.
The State Superintendent adds: "A
full and equitable adjustment will be
made so soon as full census are in."
From this it Is safe to conclude that
this sum is not the full amount due
this county. As we have before said,
and as is known by, especially those
who are officially connected with
school affairs, the school matters
throughouttheStateare terribly "mix
ed up." It is prei-uroable that most,
if not all of the troubles arise from
the change in our school' system,
which has been brought about by the
enacting of our New School Law.
After it shall be thoroughly under
stood and In practical operation, we
hope to see it work more smoothly.
Dr. McGrew seems somewhat at loss
how to proceed in the distribution of
the funds, as the law, provides that
"one-fourth of the whole amount to
be distributed shall be divided equally
between the several Mricts, and the
remaining three-fourths, pro-rata in
the several Districts, according to the
enumeration returned by the Direc
As the districts are all In urgent
need of funds, our plan would be to

SFJIAIU COUNTY SCHOOL MONIES.
Mr. Editor :
Having access to the accounts of
County Treasurer Bratton, I send you
a few figures to be found uponliis
books, which may be found of inter
est to the general reeder.
' I found that he has sent up to the
State Treasurer $15,000 of the cash
paid in to him by the purchasers of
school lands in Nemaha county. Sup
posing this sum to have been on in
terest by fix months, at six per cent.,
we have for interest thereon to the
credit of Nemaha county, on school

Making the total State School fund to
he distributed in iwu, couectea in
Nemaha county.................57,32 31
Of this sum the county of Nemaha
receives back the sum of $5,024, little
ever one-half of the amount the
county furnishes Jo the State. Or, in
other words, the county of Nemaha
pays for the education of the children
of the State outside of her limits, the
snug little sum of $2,408,31.
Now, Mr. Editor, I doubt not your
readers are anxious for the ballance
sheet of the whole State upon this
matter, so that they may see what
counties pay into the State Treasury
more than thev receive back ; and
how much and what counties are sub
sisting upon the bounties of such as
ours, and to what extent. Can you
furnish us such information.

In the Senate of the U. S., Jan. 15,
1870, Virginia having adopted the loth
amendment of the constitution of the
U. S., viz : "The right of citizens of
the United States to vote shall not be
denied or abridged by the United
States or by any State, on account of
race, color, or previous conditions of
servitude," the question being wheth
er the other conditions should be im
posed"upbn her, the following remarks
were made by "Mr Tipton, Senator
from Nebraska :
Mr. President, if the fifteenth
amendment was already adopted. I
should go to Virginia to-night, and I
should claim that Dy the fifteenth
amendment, the fourteenth amend
ment and the thirteenth amendment.
fche was bound by the Constitution to
do all and everything that is contain
ed in the condition involved in the
proposition" of the Senator from Mis
souri, iiut so tar as that is concerned
the thirteenth amendment is adopted.
and to all intents and purposes so far
as Virginia is concerned, sne has done
a part in the adoption of the fifteenth
amendment also. - -
Now,-1 feel as confident that the
fifteenth amendment will become a
part xf the Constitution in a short
time as a man can be in regard to any
future event ; but suppose it should
fail, then what? Then the Senator
from Missouri would have U3 on rec
ord in favor of the fifteenth amend
ment, and if she should violate that
she is just as much condemned for un
fairness as she couia he ii she were to
Violate the conditions prescribed by
the amendment of the Senator from
Missouri. She nevercan stand vindi
cated if she went back unon that record
any more than she could stand vindi
cated If she went back upon the record
made by the adoption of the amend
ment of the Senator rrom Missouri.
Whatever therefore, is necessary to be
done in order to bind the honor of the
State of Virginia has already been
done ; and if that will not hold her to
her fealty to the constitution of the
United States. I want toknow wheth
er she would feel uuder more obliga
tions to obey the law of Congress than
she would the constitutional amend
ments of the Constitution of the Unit
So far as these conditions are con
cerned, I came from a State that was
admitted with a condition-precedent,
but there was no penalty attached to
the violation of that principle in case
it should be violated, and consequent
ly, when the question arose on the
original proposition of the Senator
from Missouri, I voted against that
proposition from the fact that it under
took to ImpOse a penalty which was
not attempted to be imposed upon the
State of ebraska.
Predicating my argument upon the
adoption of the fifteenth amendment,
I think I can see where Virginia
would be dealt with under the Con
stitution for violating the principle of
the fifteenth amendment. When she
shall have gone back upon that propo
sition, when her members to the
House of Representatives shall go
there, a portion of the citizens of Vir
ginia by law having beeu excluded
from the privilege of voting then the
House being the judge of the
qualification of its own paembcrs,
would not allow one ofthose members
thus elected to take the oath of office
or to become a member, and not the
State would bo remanded back, but
the constituency that had violated a
provision of the Constitution in his
election. There is wlere the House
of Representatives would deal with
the refractory State, and not under
take to remand the State back but re
mand back to his constituents every
member that had beeu elected In vio
lence of the Constitution of the United
States. And, sir, under the same
state of things, when under like cir
cumstances a Senator should present
himself here and it should be ascer
tained that the Legislature of Virginia
had elected him, had members In that
body in violation of the principles of
the amendments of the Constitution,
he would be held at arras' length in
this Chamber, until a properly chosen
Legislature of the State of Virginia
should elect and send here a Senator
in obedience to the Constitution of
the United States. And thus would
the punishment fall upon her first,
in preventing the admission of her
members into the House and her Sen
ators elected in violation of the prin
ciples of the Constitution ; not a pun
ishment inflicted upon the whole
State at once and entire by remand
ing her back to the condition in which
she stands to-night.
When the State of Nebraska came
here for admission she came here
without your enabling act, she came
here jwitli a constitution formed by
her Legislature, without any of your
authority; and yet you cured all de
fects and admitted the State. Vir
ginia comes here to-night, having
complied with the requirements of the
law which you gave her, as certified
by the commander you sent to enforce
it, as indicated by the message of the
President of the United States; and I
therefore do not feel inclined to go
back of these facts to-night for the
purpose of imposing conditions which
I' feel add no strength to the Constitu
tion and can cure no defect", in that
instrument, and cannot make up for
the probabilities of the loss of the fif
All my tendencies are to go as far
as the furthest in restraint and in eter
nal punishment for refractory rebel
States ; and it was my desire therefore,
to be able to come to such a conclusion
in regard to the proposition originally
before the State, as that I might vote
for it heartily aud willingly. I could
not come to that conclusion, and I
voted against the first; and deeming
that it would add no strength, what
ever, to the case, I do not suppose,
unless a change of mind very sua Jenly
comes over me, that I shall be able to
vote for this amendment.

At the request of many farmer subscribers
we shall again make an attempt to give a re
view of the produce market. This we at
tempted some time ago, but found It did not
work to the satisfaction of many, as they
expect us to furnish a market that would
bold good until our next Issue. The market
is too fluctuating for that ; all we can do is to
give quotations at the date of our issue. This
we will attempt to do as correctly as possi
ble, In hopes that our efforts will be appreel
ated. When we get out a daily and that day
may not he far distant we can give a daily
report. We shall also give the prices In
omana ana Kt. josepn, 01 tne articles we
quote, in which way the farmer may Judge
of the Influence of these markets upon ours.
We not ice from our exchanges that there Is
great reluctance on the part of farmers in
the Missouri Valley to dispose of their grain
at present prices, preferring to hold on until
spring for a rise, being Induced to this from
the known scarcity of corn and wheat in the
Middle States. This withholding of the sta
ges that move capital from the east, is mak
ns times much harder in this valley than
if the crops were moved. Good prices for
grain in tnesprine. and a re-apportionment
of the circulating medium giving more to
the growing W est will make times very
urisK next season.

The' Kunst-Chronlk," ofDe. IS. 18fiS, the leading
rt-Jouanal in Germany, published by Prof. Dr.
Cart Von Lutzow, a man of authority in art-matters
has the following, under the l.ea ling
Prang's American Cliromos.
. . . "The Chromos before us were published by
L. Prang A Co Boston, which firm introduced
Chromo-lithography into America, and have lately
so elaborated the process, by means of a new tech
nical nppuances, lliut tneir productions are able to
take rank with the best German productions, and
Indeed surpass these in delicacy and transparency
of tone. The best of the specimens known to us are
"Karly autumn on Ksopus Creek." after Bricher, a
Boston artist: "The barefoot Boy," after Eastman
JoIin.Hoh, the foremost of American genre, and the
"Poultry-Yard." after Lemmena. . . . Their techni
cal execution Is excellent in every respect. The
"Autumn" and ' The Barefoot," especially, have
reacnea me limits 01 possibility as regards delicacy
of treatment and transparency of color. Their ex
celences, which recur in all the specimens, and ex
plain the cause of their success, are these; the em
ployment of a multiplicity of stones for each shade
of color: fine, carefully prepared pigments, (one of
tne main mings in i.nromo-jutluHiraph.v) ; n very
clever imitation of the canvas, reproducing the
marks of the brush : and a style of mounting which
is both practical and durable!"
