OMAHA VS. MII.ITAIIY.
The Cinaha people evidently dislike
the publication cf the - Lite dispatches
roin Gen. Conner and Col. Livingston
as we should judge by the toiie of
the Republican. Facts are sometimes
tubborn .things, and occasionally recon
upon thoe who would suppress them
rem the public especially when the
public welfare depends upon their pro
mulgation. This is an uncommon oc
currence, for the columns of the Iiepub-
ican to be closed against anything that
is for the public good, and the editor of
that paper is evidently laboriug under
a mistaken idea in regard to the ob-
ect of Gen. Conner and Col. Livings
ton in sending those despatches. If
lose gentlemen have the right to say
in what number and in what manner
emigrants and freighters should travel
from Ft. Kerrney West, and they
undoubtedly assume that right, and no
one says aught against it they possess
the same right, when they deem it for
the welfare and safety of those travel
ing West, to say what is their best
route and safest mode of traveling from
the Missouri River to Fort Kearney.
We do not suppose it was the inten
tion of Gen. Conner or Co!. Livingston
to use their auihority to prevent emi
grants from traveling the North Platte
route, if they desired to, but only to
2ive them timely notice that troops
could not be spared to escort them, and
they wo'ild have to take the risk upon
themselves. Such notice was just and
right, and due from them to the public,
for the reason that they are stationed
along the Western thoroughfare to pro
tect travelers and punish hostile In
dians. Thpy would be recreant to
fheirduty did they allow travelers to
run into danger or start upon an im
practicable route, without first giving
them proper information concerning

"The Direction of the Burlington and
Missouri River Railway Company, at
its late meeting in Boston, determined
upon the permanent location of the line
of that road to Plaitsmouth, N. T. This
question, which has so long been un
answered to our people, may therefore
be considered finally settled. The
maps, profiles and estimates of the
surveys made from this city westward
last November; the statements of busi
ness made by the Board of Trade, and
other material information and argu
ments in favor of a location to this ci
ty, were laid beiore the President and
Directors, and after a consideration of
them and a comparison with represen
tations in favor of 1 lattsmouth, the
matter was decided as above.

this newspaper visited Glenwood and
Plattsmouth on Monday, and held a
long interview with Mr. Thielson. the
Chief Engineer of the B. Sc M. It. R.

ascertained. They were satisfied of
the entire good faith of the Engineer,
and that all representations in favor of
this city had been properly madj and
urged before the Direction.

account of our late ecout, under com

We left here on the 19th day of May, at
10 o'clock, P. M., with seven days ra

corting the Hon. Schuyler Colfax, Gen.
Conner and other distinguished travel
ing companions, with safety through the
infested country in the vicinity of Little
lilue River. On the morning of the 20th
we arrived at Elm Creek Station, where
we found several men who were wound
ed by the Indians near what is called
Indian Hollow. Our Assistant Surgeon
(CI. W. Wilkinson) being with us for
that purpose, dressed their wounds and
made arrangements to have them con
veyed on tho coach to this place. One
of them was scalped alive, (is improving
6lowly now) having been rendered insen
sible by a sabre cut on the back part of
tho head. As his hair was very red

to be resisted. None of the others were

Mr. Forb prefers, shallow plowing,
rolls his ground and keeps it packed,

lays by before the corn is three feet high.
Thinks the weeds aro not so injurious as
Mr. Maytield plants four feet apart
each way, leaves f ro;n three to four stalks
in a hill, harrows his ground well before
the corn is up, plows his corn shallow,
then harrows it, prefers level culture,

Queen Cultivator" as being tho best of
all. : ;
Mr. Thomas plants four feet apart each

Tlie Hanging at (ill en wood.
The Glenwood" Opinion, in speaking
of the hanging of James Henderson,
The citizens of this place were star
tled and surprised on the morning of
the 2Sth ult., at the announcement of
the fact thut James Henderson, a resi
dent of Glenwood, was found hanging
by the neck to a tree about one half
mile from town. One end of a bed
cord had been formed into a running
noose, adjusted about his neck, the
other end passed over a limb and tied
to the root of a tree standing near by.
The doctrine of"mob law." if indeed
it can ever be satisfactorily justified,
must find an abiding place resting- on
the most extraordinary grounds, sur
rounded by the most extraordinary
circumstances. That the world may
be able to judge correctly in the pres
ent case, we desire briefly to state, so
far as we know, the facts and circum
stances connected with the affair.
Mr. Henderson had been living in
Glenwood a number of years, engaged
in the various callings of saloon keeper,
gambler and loafer. He belonged to
that clas? of men who desired the final
riumph of the rebel flag, often giving
vent to the treasonable sentiments he
entertained. Last winter the safe con
taining the County Treasure of this
county, was attempted and came well
nigh being openec?. The circumstan
ces connected with this affair, fastened
universal suspicion upon Mr. Hender
son. Since that. businesIiouses have
been broken into frequently, and on
Friday night before the death of Hen
derson, a horse was stolen from the
stable of Mr. Belts, in ihis place. For
several months back, Henderson had
been 'oafing about town, sometimes
away on short trips to places unknown
to people here. That he carried on a
general thieving and robbing business,
the people who knew him best have
uniformly believed for several years,
but he was a sly, cunning, shrewd man,
and so stealthily accomplished his vil
lainy that no clue could ever be got to
fasten guilt upon him in the Courts of
ACCKSSOUICS TO TREASON.
Harrold and others are sometimes
spoken of as accessories to Booth's
crime. It is a fact which should be
generally understood, that treason is a
crime to which accessories are un
known. Those who procure, counsel
or command another to commit this
crime, or who, knowing the deed to
have been committed, receive, relieve,
comfort or assist the traitor, are con
sidered as principals, and punished ac
cordingly. Chilly, in his treatise, on
the Criminal Law, says :
"There can te no accessories in
time of treason, for all who are con
cerned are principals; the same acts
which make a man accessory in felony
make him a principal in treason, be
cause of ihe heinousness of the crime.
Besides, it is to be considered that the
bear intent to commit treason is, in
many cases, actual treason, as imagin
ing the death of the king, or conspiring
to depose him from ihe throne. And,
as no one can advise in or abet such a
crime, without an intention to have it
done, there can be no accessories be
fore the fact, since the very adviee and
abetment amount to principal treason."
Such is the English Law, which forms
the basis of our own. In ;he United.
States the law is not so clearly deter
mined treason, until recently, being
a crime almost unknown 10 our annals
Reason and common sense would dic
tate that we should regard as much
more heinous than the . murder of a
king, the assassination of our Presi
dent, the embodiment of the will of the
American people, so recently and al
most unanimously expressed. Cin.
An officer of the United States ar
my, whose authority in such a case we
cannot question, gives leave to pub
lish the following account of what he
heard Jeff Davis say just before the
breaking out of the war. We use his
"I heard Mr. Davis utter the fol
lowing words in a southern town where
he delivered an address in November,
1S60. I did not hear the whole
speech, only the words quoted, as I
passed by the crowd of listeners :
'What ! coerce a sovereign State !
attempt to deprive us of cur most ines
timable rights ! Let Mr. .Lincoln try
it, or Mr. Douglas, either, and we will
hang ihem higher than Hainan, and
the or.lv difference that I should make
wcu'd be that fhumorcusly as Mr
Lincoln is considerably taller than Mr.
Douglas, we should have to build his
gibbet fstanding on his toes and reach
ing up his hands a leetle higher lhan
that for Douglas.

ESA friend wonders whether Jeff.
Davis will preside over the destinies of
the Southern Confederacy any more.
We sincerely hope he will. The Con

THE PARTIES SEAMED
A correspondent of a New York-
paper in the South, says : Both Eng
land and France are intensely hated
by all classes south, and charged with
hypocricy, cowardice, and, in the great
part, with the failure of the Confed
erate cause. Copperheads in the north
are looked upon with loathing and con
tempt. This sentiment is general
among the soldiers, and constantly
referred lo. They really succeeded
in making ihe masses believe that the
North would not fight, when they as
pro-slavery Democrats were in league
with the south. The people may yet,
if allowed, erect monuments to Davis
and his conspirators it is very doubt
ful whether they would ndmit dead
Copperheads 10 ihe potter's field ; and
to-day, while Massachusetts Yankees
are walking leisurely through these
rebel camps with no guard within
eighty miles, both undisturbed and po
litely treated, it would be dangerous.
