a rain during the n:ght or morning we

Monday, tho olsr in-t. MUi Sliea is
well known, as a teacher, to most cf our
citizens, having been engaged in teach
ing in this city f,.r Fin,e time. Miss Lv
can is spoken cf in the highest terms of
praise by those who are acquainted with
her. Th-y extend an invataihm to all.
C5?"H"hy is it that our city authorities
charge circuses bu: four and five dollars
license, wuen almost every little place in
the conntry demands of them not less
than $25, and some $j0? Would it nut
be a wise policy to put on a little more
tariff on institutions that tako thousands
of dollars out of th J community, and
beneSt no one, but 11 their own pockets?
If our worthy M ivor would d m m l a
little more license from some cf these
ewinileing institutons, it might enable
ti3 to have some city improvements in the
way of bridges, which are badly needed.

C3"What would our readers think of
an address, delivered on the Tourth day
of July, eighteen hundred and eixty-five,
that would fill five columns of a news
paper and not containing a single word of
joy at the successfull termination of the
gieat struggle through which our nation
has ju3t passed? Would they think the
orator was "too full (of loyalty) for ut
terance?" or would they, more naturally,
suppose that was a subject upon which
he did not care to have his views made
public. See an address purporting to
have been delivered on tha 4th, some
where in the vicinity of Plattsmouth.
Ci?"A graceless scamp by the name
of Barney O'Donnell, entered the stable
of Mr. Glenn last Monday night, and
stole two pair of briddles, two collars,
pole straps, and various other small
articles all new. Tho villian had the
audacity to comotothe shop of M. B.
Murphy (where the tnings were manufac
tured) yesterday morning, and try to
trade the collars for smaller ones. Mr.
Murphy recognized the property, and
immediately took steps to have the cul
prit arrested. lie was taken before
Justice O'Niel for examination, and
held to bail in tho sura of $150. The
property was all recovered.
fj7l)uring tho storm last Friduy eve
ning, a singular appearing conical shaped
cloud was visible in the no. th west.
Wejlearn- that; the section of country,
over which it passed was visited by a
severe hail storm, damagng crops to a
considerable extent. Tho corn on some
farms was badly cut down, and, although
we have not heard any particulars, we
have no doubt the standing wheat was
Latkr. We are informed by Mr.
Thomas that the hail storm embraced a
scope of country about three miles in
length ami two or two and a half in width,
entirely distroying the crops on the farms
of S. L. Thomas, Mrs. Craig, W. W. Con
nor M. Hyatt, and Thomas Thomas. The
hail was accompanied by a strong wind,
w hich changed to almost all points of the
compass during the time the storm last
ed, which was about twenty or thirty
minutes. Fences were blown down, and
generally strewn about. Mr- Thomas
discribes the wheat and oats as baing as
completely threshed as he ever saw it
done by a machine, and nothing left of
the corn crops cxeent the stubs of the
stalks, which were badly bruised by the
falling hail Some of the farms adjoin
ing those above mentioned were injured
considerably, but. not so as to entirely
destroy tho crops. The hail stones
were not of so great a size as are often
seen, but were driven with terrible force
by the wind.
