Mb. En.rou: I'erlnps my election
eering tour on the fronlior may be of some
service lo you when hard run by the devil
for copy, if to, you are nt liberty to use
it, nsl urn rather religiously inclined, and
anxious to alleviate the misery of those
hard pressed by him. Well sir, you must
know lliut having the best interest of the
dear people at heart. I consented to serve
them in the first Council in Nebraska Ter
ritory, a great personal sacrifice, but my
lore for them, not office, oh no ! induced
me to forgo the pleasures of home on the
wide rolling prairies, with p!eiily of veil
sion and bulLlo, to be confined within
brick and morlar walls, sixty days or less,
to make laws for the people to violate and
the makers to Lrctik. 1 purchnsed my
policy w ilh stores for a fortnight's trip,
and started for the upper settlements to
let the people know my views and set my
self right before them, like olher smart
men have done to .secure their voles, after
several hours ride over, a fine prairie
count) j, dotted wi'h tmptj' cabins, foun
dalioii', nnd claim stakes. 1 discovered a
pesky prairie wolf, attempting lo cross my
m il. recollecting Ihe old i-aj ing of some
author, it w is bad hick to let hi. n accom
plish his purpose, 1 spurred Lyon and
iieaileil Mm, mm gave two Minold Irom my
revolver,which made him drop his front an. 1
rear extremities, und trudge away at a
slow pace, so thought I, w ill my opponents
vanish on the night alter the election,
whvn I have beaten them, as I am sure to
do according to this sign, besides 1 have
winning wijs for children, nnd some
slight naek of aaj ing fine cousolling things
to father's and mother's; about sun-down
I found a fipMattei's cabin occupied by five
voters, here I thought is my chniite to
make a beginning, us so many votes all for
me might save the election; but how lo
do it was the ouistion, us there were no
children here lo pay my attentions too, I
must reach them Koine other way, taking
for granted that self interest is the rudder
that steers mankind, absorbs all the liner
feelings of human nature. I told them
tiny liad a nice place for the Capitol, il
they only had a few more cubins, I llioiight
they would certainly get the county seat
established if I was only elected, audpre
hnps, the Pacific li.iili yad; un I said I, if
you are delei mined to make me go to the
Council, I shall try lo get jou all some
county offioes, though 1 had much rather
stay at home, finish my cabin, and then
come up and hunt with you three or four
weeks. This was; enough, I struck the
riL'ht string, all were satisfied. I was a
citvtr fellow, they would vole for me. 1
divided my tobacco with them, and started
for (heir nearest neighbor on the other
side of the river, crossing Cn 0 dry cot
. on wood log and swhning my ponej-. I
found a tail Huekeye, some dozen dogs
with live or six hopeiul little rcsponsibil
ties, preparing for coon hunt, as he was
jiibl out of meat, he, kindly invited mo a
join him; calling his sun George, my horse
was cared for, shouldering an ae oil' we
started. What would candidates in the old
settlements think if they had to hunt coons
all night, curry an axO and gun, and travc1
a dozen miles on foot, through timber, lull
prairie grass and underwood, to secure
one vole and have, some frcah meat for

ECHO TO BOGLE BLASTS.
Mr. Editor: Dear Sir I am not ne
euslomed to appearing before the public
in the capacity of a public writer, but, sir.
I must beg the privclege of a short space
in your columns this week, for the pur
pise of noticing some of the animadver
sions of your pugnacious . neighbor the
editor of the "Council JJIufTs Bugle."'-
I have been o subscriber to his paper for
some months, and with Job-like patience,
have submitted to his barbarous mutila
tions of the Enerlish language his base
and unwarrented misrepresentations and
itiieraled falsehoods have borne wilh
his perversions of the duties and privi
leges of an editor but when 1
happen to see my iniimate personal
friends, assailed, misrepresented and abus
ed, 1 can no longer brooi such atrocious
invasions of everything decent, respecta
ble and corleous, without enleiing my
earnest protest, and expressing my abhor
rence of the man who is guilty of it.
Only a few w eeks since the editor of the
Hugle, in hi.s usual flippant and ungener
ous style, attempted tj castigate the au
thor of a letter from one cf the Eastern
States an extract of which was publish
ed in your paper simply because the wri
ter happened to allude to the notorious
course of the Jhigle, in misleading emi
grants, and in iguilying the advantages of
his particular locality, to the disparage
ment of olher greatly more favored por
tions of the slate.. Now, what tint letter
contained was not only palpably true, but
il did not even ihen tell half all the truths'
Yet upon reading the letter, his M ijesty
of the Jhigle pretends to h ive his hair
spring sensibilities set to vibrating at a
furious rale, and assumes a most sublime
ly ridiculous air of injured innocence
actually having the audacity tn claim truth
fulness () and accuranj () for all his
absurd representations and gyralives.
Truly, this is an age of wonders, 'when
such a man pursuing such a course
can have the impudence to set himself up
among rcspcctuble men as a specimen of
veracity ! It reminds me strikingly of
the pretentions of that othtr thing llo.it ing
down the river with an apple in the fa
ble. Next thing we hear will be Jhe d 1
rebuking sin. Ihit Jiotw ithslandirg the
editor of the Bugle resorted lo his tavor
ile vilu liillinsgate epithets, in noticing
the author of the aforesaid letter, yet ev
ery one who knows the author of that
Idler, as I know him, will pronounce hi n
a courteous and refined gentleman, with
good judgement and fearless in spuaking
(he truth. And were not tho truiln spo
ken in that letter s.t apparent and well
known, I would. take some pains to show
up the fads and figures lis they exist.
Ihil I must notice one more flagrant a
buse of editorial privclege.
lu the number of his paper
dated tho H h insl., I see an article head
ed, "The biggest thief cries thief first.
Wol es abroad," iu w hich he refers lu an
article published in an exlru from the of
fice of the Nebraska City News, the ob
ject of which apjicars, was to expose the
duphci'y and double-dealing of a certain
nspii'aul to a high official poailion, and who
was attempting by false appearance and
representations to secure the aullVages ol
the people living in the locality from
which the "News" cmiuales. Thut ex
jHisi.iott was successful. The fads sel
forth proved true and could not be rebut
ted. The elVtet was not that the individ
ual referred to who, by the bye, seems
to be a prt brother of the 'cPn6i'riniion"
was run clear out of the Territorj', and
immediately took shelter under the wings
of his "kindred-spirit'' the editor of the
Ihigle. Their accumulated spleen must
be vented. They cannot vtp'y to the ai-
tide by either pv.l'.iii'ing jr suet e- sfully
denyi.ig i's truth. The prolific brain o
ihe Ihile man immediately sngges's that
il must be replied to in his favorite style
personal ulutse of i!s author not on'y
of lis author, but also of those who were
ne ivc in prnpig.iting the fatal exposition.
So he discovers that another ci:izon of
Nebraska City, and not the cditcr of the
p:.pe.r, wrote the baneful article this gave
him nn opporlttiiiiy to abuse both at ran
dom, lie st'js he is "not at a loss to dis
cover that a certain functionary-, residing
in (ilenwood, was the author of the arti
cle, ami men goes on to heap a torrent ol
abuse upon his devoted head. He evident
ly alludes to the Hon. H. V. Houoei.. who
recently resigned his nllice in Mills coun
ty nnd removed to Nebraska City, of
which place he is one of the proprietors.
Wonderful cp'ie;--m .gnificenl perceptive
faculties (!) has Ihe editor of the Ihigle.
Wonder how much the ''combination,'
paid him for the discovery I He per
ceives that a man wrote the article whose
style of writing he never could have had
an opportunity of becoming acquainted
or ever of seeing ! Oh ! Joseph! Joseph!
how wise ! A brick would be transpa
rent to you !
Judge Jiennel, I am sure never would
deny hi-.ving written the article, had he
done it. nnd if it is any pleasure for
the Hugle eMilor to labor under the delu
sion that he ( Hemic! ) had the honor lo
expose a rased, I don't suppose the .fudge
will be disposed lo complain. Jhit it is
transparent to every one lhal the Ihigle
mans only oSjod was to find a pretext to
slander, misrepresent and ibuse Judge
Beimel. The Bogie editor gors on to ac
cuse him of having ' imported'' vo'es to
"secure his election over Major Downs,
ihe oldest inhabitant," &c. What truth
is there in this statement? Il appears
from the election returns that there were
ihree Councilmen elected from that coun
ty, and Judge Bcnnel has the highest f. um
ber of votos cast for that oifier, while there
were two others elected over Downs
lliey having less votes lhan Beimel.
Truly yours, H. II. II.
