WEDNESDAY,.. JULY 'SOW
We are. iofarrrjed by a gentleman
from the West,' that this route is now

roads have no troops on them east of
the Junction, at which point the Atch
ison road comes into them; 'this howev
er is for the reason that these roadare
considered perfectly safe never hav
ing been disturbed by Indians duriDg
the.-present war. The road from
Omaha is guarded by permanent In
fantry guards from the O. K. Store,
at Grand Island City, to Fort ' Kear
ney; do Cavalry is needed at these
Stations, as a full Company of the 7th
Iova is now on the South Fork of Loup
river,1 immediately north of Boyd's Sta
tion, whose duty is to thoroughly scou1
the country on Wood River and the
Forks of the Loup, thus preventing the
Indians from approaching the road.- .:
- Auotber Company of Cavalry is per
manently stationed at the Pawnee
Agency, whose duty is"; not only to
Bold the Pawnees in subjection and pre
vent their thieviDg propensities from
-being indulged in, but also to scout the
-Country north, and west of their station;
thus giving ample security to the ' road
from Columbus to Kearney. .:
Our friend informs ' us that a IK the
roads leading from the "Missouri Rir
er, are now perfectly safe as far as
Denver. No misfortunes can possibly
occur to parties on the road unless they
violate the present system of organiza
tion, requiring fifty armed men with
each train. Should any parties lose
thejr lives or property, between the
JVtissbur! and Denver, it will only , be
those whose fool-hardiness leads them
to forsake the trains to which they were
assigned, and striking out :.by . them
selves, thus offer temptation to any
little lurking band of thieving Indians,
who may be skulking ia the Sand Hills
adjacent to the road. ; r:" - : -'
. Gen. P. E. Connor, we .understand,
as about moving with a large force of
veteran troopa from Fort Larimie . to
wards Powder and Tongue Rivers, and
the toe towards the, Yellowstone. River;
while Gen. Sully's -movement from
Sioux City sweeps the country to the
wast and north of the Running Water;
Col. Cole of the 2nd Missouri : Light
Artillery, with 1,200 men", .scours all

These movements are simultaneous
and cannot fail to thoroughly clean out
the oeward?y redskins, who, for more
than a year past, have been having
things pretty much their own way.
lVe wiahour military friends all man
ner of success; and sincerely hope the
excellent arrangements made by Gen.
Connor,- will result in a thorough pun
ishment of these red devils' and a bind
ing treaty of peace, ' which will, 'like
that he made with the ' Lytes, secure
peace along: the Great Overland
VETERA BANQUET. '
The Veteran Banquet, given in
honor of the return of Gen. Livingston,
on Saturday evening, was a complete
success.- The supper thanks to the
ladies in general, and the committee in
particular was all that the most fasti
dious could desire, and in abundance,
although the number in attendance was
very great, lne music, wmcn was
conducted by Mrs. Simpson and Mrs.
Wise, was certainly, not the' least at
tractive feature of the occasion. : :
After supper was over,r OVIr. Mar-
quett made a short address, speaking
in hig"h teraisr of the brave boys of the
Nebraska First, and highly compli
menting Gen. IJ.tioirsto'n. .. He closed
by saying that as Cass - county had
been the first, in Nebraska, to respond
to the call of country, she should 'not
be the last to honor her heroes. That

the President he will not hereafter re

Dodge. .-- ' ..i.-iv. i- .' ; -
On the trip down Mudd and Spang

Arnold and O'.Laughlin seemed much
depressed in spirits, and were melan

the conspirators not made known.
:The trial' of Mary Harris, for the
murder of Burroughs, was concluded
on the evening of the 19ih. The jury,
after only ten' minutes' consultation,
rendered a verdict of acquittal. - The "1
scene in the court room was very ex

applause. Miss Harris fainted and
had to be carried out of the Court

there is : reason to believe that ' the'

We noticed that the farmers ia the
lower part of the county are making -
many improvements,,; in the. way of
building fencing, and "breaking prai
rie." Harvesting . between here -and
Nebraska city is nearly completed; and,
during the seven years we have resi
ded in the, Territory, we never .saw as
good crops of wheat and oats as there
are the present season; and as to corn,
there is no telling how . much it will
yield. -.5 -: :.' . ,
Arriving at the town of Wyoming,
we found our old friend' A. C. Reed
on duty, looking after the : interests of
the-decrples of Brigbam, furnishing
them with whatever they needed in the
way of groceries," dryrgoods, &c. We
found, at this point, about 1200 Mor

of this year's emigration. .They . are
principally English and Danes. - About
500 of these deluded, religi ous fanat
ics, are to be left here. The emigrant
agents have got all their money, and
now tell them they cannot take them
through tothe "land of promise" until
next season. Many-of those who are
ta be left, hadjmid to the, . agents, in
the old country, the full amount deman
ded to carry them through to Salt Lake,
and are now unable to get through or
to get their money basck. The others

upon the occasion of a visit to a milita
"The Governor, ia his speech here,
took occasion to refer to the ungallant
conduct of Napoleon III: in "'slipping
into Mexico when our hand&were full,
and .establishing a ..monarchy, at our
very no3e down there, . and said that
although he deprecated war as much
as any man. yet if Napoleon did.' not
speedily remove his 2-5,000 troops
from that old Republic and leave " the
Mexicans to take care of themselves,
and set up whatever kind of a govern

first to urge upon the ' United Slates
Government the organizing and equip
ping of .an army in this country, to go
down to Mexico and root the. French
out of that country, and leave the
Mexicans to takecareof themselves;
and did not want and would not have a
petty monarchy with a mush-room
aristocracy planted anywhere on this

JEFF DAVIS AS A MORAL.
Geo. W. . Curtis writes in Harper's
Magazine f or July r ,
At the time of our writing, the most
conspisious .offender "ever capitally in
dicted in this country ils alone ia;a
spacious casemate of 'Fortres Monroe,',
wi'h only a Bible upon his tableland
two silent sentinels watching him by
day and night. 'Perhaps, as he sts
there or paces the floor, be remembers
the hapless victims of Andersonyille
and Belle IsIe,'-or recalls the long hor
rors of the war which has smeared so
many lovely fields with blood. In the
terrible 'quie of his prlson doea'he ever
ask himself whether it was worth while
to uare sucn a,, grievous sorrow ia tiis
country for " such a cause ? Does he
ever argue with himself that even if
the theory of State - sovereignty '. were
true, it was not wise to assert it at such
a cost of misery, merely for., he,, sake
of perpetrating something which must
surpass any conceivable injustice of
the nation toward a State? Has : he
never learned that many. things may
be lawful which are not expedient, and
that nothing but' the most prolonged
injustice.'of which legal redress is
hopeless,' is a worse oppression than
the remedy of civil war? .
. Technically he is a political prisoner.
As such he, will be tried. But he, is.
also arraigned before the conscience
and heart of his faithful fellow1 citizens
as a moral criminrl of the worst kind.
Even fanatical candor, cannot plead
that he was ignorant of the systematic
horrors of the Geonria prisons the
starving, the freezing, the slow reduc
tion of human beings to idiocy by expo
sure, by hunger, by contact with fihh
and disease. It was intended-to wea
ken them into despair and submission,
and it had that effect. It was also in
tended to compel an exchange of sound
and efficient men for his service, and
there it failed. But. the first result was
constant. : ... i -
Here, for, instance, is a note written
in pencil from the United States mili
tary prison at Nashville, by an honest,
industrious, sober, patriotic neighbor of
the Easy Chair's, who has been a
faithful soldier of the war from the
beginning. He says that he was cap
tured before' Petersburg : last August,
and was sent from Richmand to Salis
bury. There he and his .'comrades
there were ten thousand, in his esti-,
mate, during the period of his impris
onment were starved, and starved,
and starved. They, died,' and ' died,
and by scores and hundreds took the
oath to the rebels and were placed in
their ranks. He and a few others
persisted as long, as "he could. But
hunger and weakness a'nd horror grad
ually did their work.J and he- succum
bed. Jbrom August until April he had
suffered more than we can , imagine,,
and then he yielded. He was put in
the rebels ranks, and arms put in his
hands and those of his companions,
about half an hour before Stoneman
arrived. He did not fire a shot against
his flag none of then did and they
went directly over to Stoneman, but as
coming from the rebel ranks they were
held as prisoners.
This is one case, and : enough, but
with . alleviations one case, not the
worst; but how tragical. Yet there
were thousands and .thousands like
him who sufFered'all that'' he 'suffered,
and then consumed with loaihsome'dis
eases; with broken hearts, wih reeling
brains, sank into the convulsive agonies
of death, or laughed oot'to start mad-
ness, or.drivened slow'y on in. idiocy.
And they, were young, and brave, and
noble men who were treated. They
were guiltless of every crime', and had
done nothing but defend their' country.
At borne, far away i upon Western
prairies, among NevviEpgland hills,
upon the. shores of. the lakes, along the
sea coat,1 mothers and. wives and
daughters, wckens with the long sus
pense, the horrible suspicion.' Their
hair whitened, their eyes grow, dim
with hopeless watching, their cheeks
thinned with acuw fear, their hearts
broken also, and they died amidst their
appalled children. So awful a sorrow,
so terrible a suffering, both in itself
and in what it occasioned, no history
records. And it was the crime of this
man who now sits, alone with his Bible
and the, silent sentinels ia,; Fortress
Monroe. .t ' .
' ' It is train' to plead for him as a polit
ical offender. -'The'war was little com
pared with the crimes of the war. Over
the graves of the dearly , beloved shot
dead on the battlefield, we can see and
hear that political differences may
come to war- But over the Golgothas
of Millen -and Andersonville over
the spots where the . pens stood in
which ..heroic men were, treated as
beasts are never treated we call mur
der, murder, and crime, crime; and all
murders and all crimes are less black
than these.: r
Whatever the verdict of the jury may
be upon the charge of treason what
ever.the punishment,' if the accusedTbe
convicted as a traitor however, in case
of his execution, he may .be ranked
among political victims, the verdict of
every generous heart and of history is
sure against this man as a criminal not
less than the infamous English Jeffreys.
Viewed merely as a political leader,
his whole' public career is unlighted
with a single noble action, and his
speeches will be vainly' searched for
one generous emotion. r.If his infamy
in history will be singular, it will be in
every point deserved. The same kind
of gloomy odium that settled upon the
names of James II., but ten fold deep
er, as he was infinitely more criminal
will gather and darken around that pf
Jefferson Davis. . .;

An Attempt to Resurrect tlie
There is a rattling of the dry bones
of the Democratic skeleton of Ohio. 7
The leaders of the party assembled in
Columbus to solemnly consider the
graVe question, -'"If a politicaV party
die, shall it live again The result
of (he co-qsideraiion "was a painful dif
ference of opinion, and a high old rdw
in the conclave. Long and Corry ia
sisted that. ''the fundamental doctrine
of Democracy has been always, and is
now,1 best "set "forth an the firsts Ken?
tucky resolution, penned by Thomas
Jefferson,'' which declares the doctrine
of State Rights.; .They further insisted
that the Democracy should not fail to
declare its fixed opiniornhat the white
mastery and negro slavery 1 Is, - in the
South, the very best form of their so
ciety, and that any other is not only un
desirable, .but incompatible with the ne
groes existence." . , r
Vallandingharri & Co.', 'however re
fused to endorse these dogmas, and the
meeting, declared the motion to adopt
them was "out of order," whereat Cor
ry & Co., left the caucus in high dud
geon, and proceeded to publish a card
"in tne JNortnern Estates and all over
the world," setting forth their grievan
ces, and prescribing, as they think, ihe
only reliable nostrum to resuscitate the
defunct democracy. They insist npon
having independent candidates at the
fall election, and "will before the 24th
of August, hold a State nominating
Convention, to choose a State' tick
et. ' The last heard of Vallandingham &
Co., they were still tinkering at the
Democratic skeleton- They expect te
have it put together by the 24th of Au
gust, at which time another Democratic
State Convention is called.
. A Wag on Billiards. As a great
many people don't know how to play
billiards, we make way for a descrip
tion of the game from the pen of Doe
sticks, in order that they may remain
in ignorance no longer. He says .
"A game of billiards consists of
punching ivory balls about on a table
covered with green cloth, that looks like
a half an acre of medow land with an
India rubber fence around it. The
balls are Dunched with long wooden
ramrods, with wax on the little end to
save ihe wood and leather from wear
ing out. You take your ramrod and rub
some chalk on the table end; then you
lean over the table; then you sqaint;
then you lift your leg;.then fiddle a lit
tle on your left hand with your ramrod;
then you punch your ball. If your ball
hits the other man's ball, you've done
a -big thing, and you poke a lot of but
tons that are strung on a ivire. . ;This
is, all there is to a game ofbi liards.
Anybody can punch billiards; I can, and
maybe you can."
JS3fMr. Peterson, of Washington
City. the owner and occupant of tke
house in which Mr. Lincoln died,
writes a letter to the Philadelphi Inqui
rer, denying the charge that he presen
ted a claim .for damages against the
Government, or exhibited the room . iu
which the President breathed his last,
at fifty cents a head. He says that this
was done in his absence by a servant,
which resulted not in again to himself,
but in the loss of sundry sjpoons, gob

Oldest Senator. The JVatwnal
Free JMason says :
' Bro. Collamer, the Senator "of Ver
mont, is not ODly the oldest Mason, but!
the oldest man in die Senate. .He was
born in Troy. N. Y.,' 1792, and is
therefore in the seventy-third year of
his age. He is one of the best lawyers
in Congress, and makes an energetic
and. effective extemporaneous speech
even in his old age. He served in the
House of Representatives from 1S43,
when he became Postmaster General
in Taylor's Cabinet. From 1854 to
the present he has served in the Sen
ate. Bro. C. is a moral and upright
Mason. ' ' ., .

General Granger and asked him if he

than they have done Jeff Davis, it is no
