After the surrender of Lee and the
assassioau'on of President Lincoln, the
rebel element in the North subsided to
a contiierable extent, and but few of
that class were to be found who were
foolhardy onough to express their real
sentiinens. Of latP, however, they are
becoming somewhat bolder; and even
m the loyal town of Plattsmouth thre
are men who talk about -'another rebel
lion if the Souteern gentlemen are not
admitted to full citizenship." They say
that these '-Southern fire-eaters will
not submit to the depredation of being
This kind of talk only confirms us in
the belief which we have before ex
yresFf d, that these men only want the
pretext and the pother to again involve
the country in difficulty. Let every
Union-loving, law-abiding man be care
ful upon whom they confer that power.
There are plenty of m?n to be found
whose loyalty is known, and those who
nre cf doubtful repute should Le invited
to wait until they prove, by their
"works," that they are worthy of the
confidence of a law-abiding community-It
may, or it may not, be to the best
interest of the country to allow those so
luttly in arms agaiusl the Government,
to have the full privileges of ciiizenship;
thii is a question that will bear discus
sion. . liut when men go so far as to
say that '-the authoiiii'is had better be
careful that the Southern fire-eaters
won't submit'' to this or that measure,
we very naturally conclude that they
are eiiht r grossly ignorant of what has
been going on in the country for the
past four years, or else the rebel spirit
in them is eo strong that they cannot
con rcl it tither of which is, tr ought
to be, sutiicient to condemn them ia the
minds of aa intelligent, peace-loving
IeS5 In juitice to Mr. Duke, our
County Treasurer, who has been ac
cused of giving us the tax-liel for pub
llcatlon to the detriment of die tax-payers
of this county, we would refer said
tax-payers to a resolution adcpteJ unan
imously Ly the editorial convention cf
this Territory, sometime last fall.
That convention was composed of at
least one representative from each
newspaper then in existence in the Ter
ritory, except, perhaps, the Itulo Reg
ister; and the resolution in question was
to the ellVct that no paper represented
in that ccnven'.ion would publish the
list of lands and lots upon which taxes
were delinquent, for the compensation
prescribed by law. That resolution is
still in full force, and each member of
the convention is, of covirse, bound by
his honor to suppor it. This left our
County Treasurer the alternative cf
paying the extra charge from his own
pocket, or finding some one who was
not bound by that resolution, and was
willing to publish the list for the price
specified by la.v. The IIrrild, not
"being in existence at the time of that
convention, offered a chance for the
Treasurer to extricate himself from
this dilemma. If this is to the "detri
men! of the lax-payers," then we are
at a loss to know what would be to their
advantage. That convention was com
posed cf hononble men, who would
scorn to sanction a resolution of this
kind because they had a monopoly of the
lysine vs in any particular respect.
It may not be amiss, in this connec
tion, to say that all papers represented
in that convention are pledged to cnarge
for all legal advertising, at the rate of
Sl.oO per square for the first insertion,
and Si. 00 per squire for each subse
quent insertion; making about S20 for
an ordinary legal notice. Of course,
they are all honorable men, and an in
sinuatioa that any one of them did not
live up to these resolutions would be
considered at insult, and we would ad-
'ise persons in this vicinity who have
legal adver'isicg. to be careful how
they approach a member of that august
body, for fear of giving offense by im
putation. f5F'Vor& has commenced a suit
against the Government for damages,
on account of the enforced closure of his
theatre; and has employed Henry Win
,ter Davis, Thomas Eivingand William
Schley, as his counsel.
ESSGen. Butler's resignation which
was sent on the 1st of June, has been
returned marked "not accepted" and he
has been seat for to Washington,
where he is likely to be assigned to du

These gentlemen so anxious to conclude
peace with the Indians, did not mani

party of Indians surprised a camp of

fSTThe correspondent of the New

the intelligence of the Southern whites:

A New Orleans paper says ;
Judge Durell, of the United Stntes
Court, delivered his decision in the inter
vention of the Citizens' Bank and of Ma
cuard & Co., in the suit of tha United
States against, John Slidell, for confisca
tion of his real estate, in the city of New
Orleans. The Citizens' liank based its
claim on a mortgage executed by Mr.
Slidell's agent in this city, in favor of
the bank for 100000 francs. Judge
Durell decided that shuch a mortgage
was in fraud of the claims of the United
States, and was intended to reserve Mr.
Slidell's property from the couotry, so
that it could not be reached, and that

United States, hi property was liable

The Judge further decided that the
power of attorney filed by Mr. Slidell's
agents did not give them the rower to
mortgage his property. In regard to the
intervention of Macuard .t Co., who claim
a mortgage in their favor on Mr. Slidell's
property for advances, to the amount of
5'JO,000 francs, Judge D. decided that
when the mortgage was given in Paris,
it was well known to the int?rventors that

The town of W aierbury, in Connecti

manufacture of brass unities of any
place in the country, or perhaps in the
world; and all spring from one man
making a set of brass buttons. He
was rather an ingenious man, and he
thought he could make a set of brass
buttons cheaper than he could buy
them. He punched out the blanks i
faom a piece of -heet brass, turned them
up very nice in a lathe, soldered eyes j

different parts of the country which rep
resent that the crops of hay, potatoes
and corn, will be larger than at any

following in resrard to the position oc

should no longer be based on distinc
