Tho Calvert school opened Monday
morning under the management of
Miss Ella Dyas.an experienced and ac
complished teacher. About forty
scholars are in attendance. Tho
school will doubtless prosper under
Miss I) 'scare.
Old mother Samuels, mother of tho
highwayman, said when wetping for
her son, "Well, Jesse is bettor oil in
heaven than with us." And travelers
and trains, and stage coaches, art bet

than "with us," certainly.

Page, of California, Oth inst. intro
duced another antl-Chinose immigra
tion bill. Au tlioDomocrats who had
hills ready on tho same subject 'were
worried because Pago got there tlrst.
Page's bill excludes tho celestials for
H) years instead of 20, as in tho vetoed
bill, and otherwise modifies tho pro
visions, so that, us Is believed, the pres
ident can indorse it.
Tho Democratic pa'ty having run
out of issues upon which tho masses of
tho party can unite, is meditating tho
issue of free whiskey. Tho question

A negro boy in Chicago, only 12
years old, was recently arrested for
picking n Tiilo lock, in general ,Uso in
pjstoflices, and abstracting mail mat
ter. Tho Yale lock was thought to
dofy thd fngonulty of thieves, yet the
littlo nigger did it with u" simple Hat
piece of iron.
Tho Washington correspondent of
the Omaha Republican, speaking of Col.
Tom Majors' chance for liilmlssion to a
seat in Congress, saya: "1 supposo the
telegrams have informed al! our politi
cians and th oho interested, of the al
most unanimous report which lias been
secured from the committee in favor of
the admission of Majors, Supplement
arily it may again bo assorted that the
chauces of Majors' success are largo
and growing. Thanks to tho firmness
and kindness of tho speaker, and tho
sagacity and good judgment of thoso
having it in charge on tho floor, the
matter is now in such shape in tho
house that it can bo called up as a priv
ileged question -whenever tho friends
of the causa may think it oxpediont."
I haVo read, with a feeling something
liko envy, tho poetical contributions
Hint have appeared from time to time
in tho columns of tho Advkutiskk,
and I thought that perhaps I, too,
might accomplish something in tho
way of poetry, if I tried. So, after
considerable thinking I constructed
tho following pastoral poem, which J.
rospoctfnlly dedicate to my friend and
brother poot, I). J. Wood. You will'
obsorvo that tho verses do not dove
tail into each other as neatly as could
bo desired, but this is tho fault of my
inexperience. When I shall Imvo re
ceived tho poets' license, for which I
Imvo made application, I will do hotter.'

Chicago purchasing tl o largest, most
varied and best selected stock of drugs,
medicines, perfumery, stationery, no
tions, etc., over opened in the city of
Hrownvllle. Jlesides their ample stock
of fresh, pure dings, they Intend to
make a specialty in tho attractiveness
and eleganc'u of their miscellaneous
stock, which will compriso every
branch anil variety of goods compatible
with such establishments. Mr. Painey
having had an experience of som'o
years in this branch of business, and
being adapted by naturo to the business;
'vill enable him to select a stock un'
surpassed in taste and elegance. II.
& H. wero fortunate in securing tho
Lowman bushiest) room to occupy with
their Immense stock. It being without,
doubt the most handsome, elaborately
finished and convenient store room in
tho county. It is on tho north side of
Main street, first door west of Alex.
Kobison's. When their now goods are
displayed in that room and properly
arranged by deft and practiced hands,
as they will be, the show will bo a bril
liant one. Wo do not over color, nor
over-estimate the talent of these young
gentlemen to do a good thing in tho
lino they Imvo adopted, both for them
selves, the city of Prownvillo, and tho
public, and wm do not doubt that, al
though they strike out against formid
able compotitition, they will meet with
the success which their energy, enter
prise and experience demand and

Tho Nemaha bottoms, far as ono
could seo up and down, Sunday morn

casioned by mill dams and railroad
grades prevented from running off.
