There must be a commencement to
all things; and no man can expect, un
der ordinary circumstances, to amas3 a
fortune or establish a large business in
a day. It takes time, patience, and
strict attention to buriness to be in aby
way certain of ultimate success.
Towns and cities, even, do not grow
up in a day. It requires time, and ju
dicious management on the part of those
holding the destinies of the place in
their hands, especially in the West.
The bent evidence of the prosperity of a
place is to see all the different branch
es of business represented in it, even if
thev are not on ko grand a scale as we
would like. Moot of our merchant
princes and larsrft rnnufanarer3 com
menced with but little means, and have
worked their way up to independence.
Many of our citizens expected to get up
some fine morning and see all the hills
around Piattsmouth shoveled ou" into
the hollows, and the entire plain, thus
created, covered with five story trick
houses, all in consequence of the loea
lion of the B. & M. R. Railroad. They
have waited patiently for some time,
and the transformation has not yet ta
ken place, and some of them appear to
be disappointed. They expected when
it was made known that the railroad
was located here, there would be an
immense rush forthis point, and every
thing would thrive, without any effort
on the part of themselves. What "we
wish to impress upon the m;nds of our
citizens is that it takes time and labor
to build cities or estab'ish a large busi
ness. In the first place, it takes a con
ciderable length of time for tie people
throughout the Eastern Suites to find
out, to any certainty, that this location
has been made; then those wishing to
remove must wind up their affairs at
home, which cannot always be done at
a moments notice. Then comes the
part of the programme where our citi
zens have an important part to per
form. When an iudhidual comes here
for the purpose of opening any kind of
a respectable business, every man who
is interested in the prosperity of the ci
ty should renderliiin all the assistance
in his power. Do not ask him as much
for a lot as he could Luy cne in Chica
go for, but sell to. him at reasonable fig
ures. This will enhance the value of
the property you have left; and after
the town has assumed proportions tua1
will irtsvrc its future, there will be time
enough to ask tig prices for property.
Wc want business men here, and in
order to obtain them some inducements
must be offered. The location cf the
Railroad is not sufficient, of itself, to
induce men to pay as much for proper
ty here as would be asked in a place
with the same natural advantages,
where a roid is already built. We ask
the property owners in this place to look
the thing squarely in the face, and see
if there is net more to be made at dis
posing of lots on Main Street, to the
right kind of men, for the sum of, say
$200 or S300, than there would be to
ask from Sl.000 to &2.0U0, and take
the risk cf finding purchasers. The
town will, without the shadow of a
doubt, "go ahead;" but the question is
whether or no its growth cannot be
hastened, Ly several years, by judicious
management on the part of property
owners. Wrill not the increase ia the
business of the place more than com
pensate for a reduction in the price of
J5y"We have been shown a letter
from Whittemore & Co., of the Na
tional Mills, Denver, Col., in which
they argue that the farmers of Ne
braska can realize more money by
shipping 'their wheat to Denver than
they can by having it ground here and
shipping the flour. They propose that
they will pay two-thirds a3 much per
pound for wheat as flour is worth in
Denver. Let our farmers think of this
matter, and see where they can make
the most money. It would undoubted
ly be a great saving in the hauling to
those who live any distance west of
here. This is a new mill, built with
the expectation that wheat enough
would be raised in that part of the
country to keep it running, but the
grasshoppers have entirely destroyed
the cjop, and the proprietors are desi
rous cf getting wheat from here. Our
farmers all understand the necessity of
keeping a mill of this kind employed,
even if the profits are small; and we
therefore conclude that this lompany
would rather pay enough for wheat to
only leave them a profit of interest on
the investment, than . to let the mill
stand idle. We have good assurance
that they are men who will abide by
their contract, and our farmers need
not have any fears of taking their grain
to them and having to take a less price
than they have proposed to pay. Fig
ure on it; make enquiries , and find out
what is the most-profitable way of dis
posing of your surplus wheat.
Affairs in Mexico are becoming more
complicated every day. The Imperi
alists are beginning to find that it is no
oasy task to establish and maintain a
Monarchy in a country that has lasted
the sweets of a republican form of gov
ernment. The Mexicans appear to be
holding their own with the French
troops, and are hopeful of at 'last tiring
them out. A large body of French
troops are concentrating on the border,
with the avowed purpose of watching
our forces in Texas. Everything in
dicates that Maximillian will have to
travel from Mexico shortly, even if
U. S. bayonets have to be brought into
requisition tor thai purpose. The large
numbers at rebel oilicers vh a .).?.
in 2 iho Imperialists in Mexico will not
have a tendency to create any great
good feeling between that Government
and our citizens. The feeling through
out the North is becoming stronger
than ever before, that a Monarchical
form of Government must not be es
tablished in Mexico contrary to the
wishes of her ci'izens, and we appre
hend that the voice of the American
people will soon reach the borders o.'
Mexico in a shape that cannot be mista
ken ly the would-be Emperor of that
country. May the day soon come.

The following extract from the re
port of Gen. Sprague, Assistant Com
missioner of ths Freedmen for the
States of Missouri and Arkansas,
shows the estimate in which he holds
the loyalty of the late converts in these
"I regret to say that even now in
Missouri and Arkansas wherever the
power of the Government is not felt
through its military arm, the negroes
are stnl held and treated as slaves, and
it is from these former slave owners,
now violators of the law, from whom
the cry constantly comes that "the negro
won't work." The negro is frightened.
He fears in some way he will be cheat
ed out of his liberty, and it is my firm
conviction that it is the settled policy of
a large majority of former slave own
ers to accomplish by State legislation
and by covert violation of the law what
they have failed to accomplish by re
bellion." In conclusion Gen. Sprague strongly
urges the policy of ieasing or selling
the lands in small quantities to the
freedmen who have proved themselves
capable of the charge, by their intelli
gence and industry, ile believes that
if this course were pur0ued almost ev
ery freedman 'n the State would be
sustained by his own labor and the
Government thereby be rid of the ex
pense it is now incurring by the issue
of rations to the destitu'e.
Mr. Euitoh: For the information
of those interested, I with to say that
in view of the great amount of taxes
still due the city from 1S-57 to 1SG-1, it
was thought advisable by, and the City
Council employed G. W. Fairfield,
E-q., to take the old Treasurer's books
make a thorough examination, and
bring forward all the delinquents on
on the book for 1SG-3; and at the same
time to prepare a delinquent tax list
for publication, all of which has been
done; and the result is, some hundreds
of dollars of back taxes have been
brought forward and advertised. This
is the reason the property of so many
persons, who supposed their taxes were
all pa d, appears on the delinquent
list. J. Wr. MARSHALL,
Gen. Thomas to Gov. ltrown
The following extract is from a let
ter written by Gen. Tnomas to Gover
nor brownlow and published in the
Nashville papers. The Governor ha
called on Gen. Thomas to send troops
to various counties, to preserve order
and protect the ballot box.
"lam only waiting a report from
Col. Dl-Ujw to determine my action in
the case of Emerson I'.theridge. If he
hits been guilty of the language charged
against hitu, lie is clearly amenable
u military authority, and in absence of
civil laws he is liable to be tried before
a military comii.is-.ion. My attention
has been called to speeches cf other
parties, but as yet I have not seen any
report which would justify mterfer
ence by military authority. If howev
er, there be in the judgement of" the
Governor at any tiui.; necessity for
sti'.h interference in consequence of the
inability or indisposition on the part of
the civil authorities of the State, to lake
action, I will cause the parties com
plained of to be attended to according
to the nature of the cjise. The State
of Tennessee is under martial law, but
military authority will not be resorted
to unless the civil authority fails to act,
either from inability or Indisposition.
Even in the event of the failure of the
civil authority to do their duty, the mil
itary should refrain from interfering
in all minor cases. Th-e military should
as far as possible sustain the civil good,
and never assume its functions unless
in cases ia which prompt action is nec
essary to insure public safety. The
Governor may rest assured that he will
be fully sustained in carrying out the
policy of the Stai and Government so
long as troops on duty are in the State."

A Pennsylvania Democrat, who has
been spending six weeks at the South,
writes from Alabama to the Public
Lcdget (Philadelphia) as follows:
Mobile, Ala., June 21 'Go.
I have come down to this part of the
country with the inteMion of casting my
lot with it for the future, and feel im
pelled to send you a line to tell of my
impressions of the people. I have been
for some six weeks, in daily contact
with Southern people cf all political
shades, and though I am a poor talker,
1 am u good listener, and not a very
bad hand at forming conclusions from
a great deal of hearing. I came to the
Gulf States full of very fine theories
about the necessities of flucating the
negro before we could xleud to him
the privilege of sulfrage. He was ig
norant: he was bigoted; he was preju
diced; he could not be trusted with the
privileges of a voter until he had at
tained a certain standard of education.
Well, Sir, I was never further away
from the truth in my life. I have lis
tened by the hour to the familiar, so
cial, unrestrained talk of Southern peo
ple; and I have been sorry to conclude,
from all that I have heard, that the
damnable heresy of the State-Rights
Doctrine, upon which, w ith imagined
evils threatened to the institution of
Slavery, they based their acts of Seces
sion and Rebellion is as deeply rooted
in their convictions as it ever was.
They have failed to establish the suc
cess of their principles at the bayonet's
point and the cannon's mouth, but those
principles lie es near to the hearts of
the grt at mass of them as ever, and
true loyalty to the Givernmeut, as con
stituting a principle vith a mass of the
people of the North, is entirely foreign
to the breasts of the rrasses in the South.
The same hostility tint was openly dis
played in arms, exist! secretly in the
breasts of the Southern people, and is
ready at any time to txerl itself, no lon
ger in overt acts, but n every possible
pacific way to thwart the unity and pro
gress of the Republic On the other
hand, the negro has lut one principle
and one affection. Bis principle js de
votion to the Union; lis affection heart
whole for the cause hat has restored
him to manhood. No doubts of the
justice of the cause cross his mind. No
clouds of casuists' raising obscure his
vision. His instincts alone point out to
him the path he is totread as a free
man, aud point it out unerringly. Who
so safe to trust with the ballot of a free
man as he? Can demagogues lead him
astray with arts and sophistries? I trow
not. He may cot know so much of
book-learning as his paler-skinned
brother, but he is less likely to be de
ceived in what pertains to the advance
ment of all members of the human fam
ily, himself included. And if you could
see, as I have seen, the colored people
of these Southern cities sitting at their
ingst teaching each -vUcr to spell and
to count, regardless of the comments of
those who passed by, you would not be
slow in coming to the belief that even
the supposed amount of education nec
essary to enable them to vote intelli
gently, will not be long wanting. I, for
one, contrary to all my .previous ex
pectations, am fully convinced that the
only safety for the South is in the ex
tension of free suffrage to the people
of all colors, and I mean to throw my
self into the advocacy of this cause with
all my energy. Far belter is the in
stinct that teaches loyalty to the Union
than the false education that makes
S'ate-Rights traitors. Shall we trust
the future of our country to the instinct
that inevitably leads to the right, or to
the educated sophistry that inculcates
what is the false and ruinous?
We are by no means ready for a re
construction under the domination of
defeated but unconvinced traitors. We
have had a terrible war; let us not cast
away its fruits, Let us have military
government in the Southern States un
til the sentiment of true loyalty begins
to be felt; or, if we must have civil gov
ernment reconstructed, let those who
have every cause to love the Union not
be put aside while its interests are con
fided to the hands of those who have
been its open enemies.

The Commercial says the proprietor
and employees of the museum are thor
oughly convinced that the fire was the
work of an incendiary. The fire was
first discovered in the basement, and
on immediately running to the roof to
turn on the water from a large lake,
the flames were discovered bursting out
on the second floor, and on the third
near the stage of the lecture room, and
on the top floor.
Frank Tiffany, who had gone to the
roof to turn en water, found bis exit
cut off, and was obliged to descend from
the upper window by leaping to the
balcony below. Returning to his office,
he took from the oafe S-500,000 in gold
bonds and left the building.
The managers had lately received
anonymous letters containing threats of
burning the building, on account, it is
supposed, of the play of Jeff in petti

building, but stored elsewhere. The
giantess, Anna Swan, had a very nar
row escape. She was found at the
head of the stairs in a swooning condi

She lost everything except the clothes
she wore, and in her trunk were one

G. SUTTER'S BSFSIDEXCL:
The old adobe residence of General
Suiter, at the Hock Farm together
with its valuable contents, was destroy
ed by fire on Wednesday morning, 121st
uk The fire was the work of an in
cendiary supposed to be a discharged
soldier, who had been hanging about
the premises the pust few days, and
who had been caught stealing and pun
ished by being tied up. Ihe General
informs us that the fire has stripped
him of everything home, clothing, li
braries, pictures, busts, curiosities and
everything he has been accumulating
the last 40 years, excepting a medal or
two and his family portraits. When
we asked the General how much we
should state his loss to be, he replied,
evidently restraining tears, "It cannot
be estimated in dollars and cents."
Money cannot replace the thousands of
articles gathered together during a
lifetime. The General had a large
library, consisting of many volumes,
in four languages. The fire also ex
tended to a barley field, consuming a
considerable quantity of grain. The
fine locust park about the premises was
not materially injured. There was no
insurance on the buildings. Jlarys
